Fighting and Fabulousity, Wednesday, 1st Period

The class was meeting in the Danger Shop, which had been programmed to look like something reminiscent of the inside of a Gothic stone cathedral - with the exception that everywhere there were sturdy shelves with rows upon rows of different kinds of weapons on them.

And in the middle of it all, Isabelle Lightwood in a fabulous dress, with something silver coiled around her waist. Possibly a fashionable belt. Those that had something supernatural in them could also probably see that there were several black rune tattoos on her arms and the back of her right hand, and other spots on her arms were criss-crossed with faint silvery scars. "Hello, and congratulations on your good taste in classes," she told the students once everyone seemed to have shown up. Or she got bored of waiting. "This is Fighting and Fabulousity, and I'm Isabelle Lightwood, your guide throughout this workshop. I'm from New York, but graduated from Fandom High two years ago, so, expect me to be very aware of how this island functions."

Especially when it came to fighting.

"Now, because this is our first session and I don't feel like breaking tradition, so we'll be doing introductions. You'll each pick a weapon, any weapon that draws your interest, from anywhere on these shelves ––" She gestured around. So many weapons. "–– and then you'll tell us who you are, why you chose what you chose." She held up a finger. "I'll demonstrate."

She lowered her hand, and with seemingly just a little flick of her wrist, the silver coil from around her waist was in her hand: a long, silvery, metallic whip. "As I said before, I'm Isabelle Lightwood – feel free to just call me Isabelle – and this is my electrum whip. It's my favorite weapon, because it's very versatile. And also because it takes skill and practice to master." She paused for a beat, then smirked impishly. "It also looks cool."

She nodded, then gestured once more towards the shelves.

"Now, pick your weapons, and let's get started."

"I'm Ahsoka and these seemed the most familiar." You know in a certain manner of speaking.

Ahsoka idly shifted her grip on the shorter bokken from a regular one to her preferred reverse, getting a feel for the balance. "Something similar." Close enough that she'd be able to do forms with these if she had to.

"I'm Dante," Dante said, giving the funky-ass blade a twirl like he'd been born holding it. "I don't know what the hell this thing is, but it looks cool, and it's sharp as hell."

"It does have the fancy-ass doodles on it," Dante mused, eyeing the blade.

He'd noticed that brief pause, but he wasn't going to let on. Yet.

"Seems like you could do a lot of damage. Whole bunch of puncture wounds, instead of a clean slice." Beat. "And it just looks cool."

Wait, what?

Dante eyed her for a second. "Why?"

"All right..." Dante said slowly.

Then he shrugged, gave his sword-thing another twirl, and looked at the other students.

"Eric Bittle," he squeaked out, still looking kind of shell-shocked at being in this class.

"I found a paring knife," he managed. "Which, um. It was basically the only thing I spotted that I actually knew how to use?" For peeling fruit, not stabbing people or anything.

"I have never actually... fought anyone with a knife," Eric admitted. "Peeled a lot of apples, though."

"I once almost sliced my duet partner across the cheek while doing a camel spin?" Eric offered. "Accidentally. And, well. To be honest this wasn't the class I would have chosen," he admitted. "But I'm here! And I'll do my best."

"I'm Khadgar and... I don't trust myself with anything sharp yet," he admitted. "But I also think I could defend myself with this if I had to."

"Well, I don't want to cut off anything I might need later," Khadgar said, snickering softly. "I'm more of a... distance fighter, since I use magic. But, I know that won't always be an option, so here I am."

"Um. I'm Ringo Noyamano." The formality was mostly gone from Ringo's introduction, a change from two years ago, but she did still bow an offer a grin.

"And I, uh, picked this thing?" Ringo spun the chain of her kusarigama idly with one hand. "I'm kind of familiar with chain things? Though the weight on this one is kind of weird getting used to."

She grinned and shook her head. "Maybe I should have tried one of those whip things," she decided, nodding at Isabelle's
