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."

"So what is it?"

Dante'd 'stay after class' all right - by the exit, his shoulder planted against the doorway.

Sorry, Isabelle, but Dante didn't trust strange teachers even an inch. "So ask," he said. "I'm listening."

The fuck, seriously.

"Answer's in the question," Dante said. "I'm Dante."

"A student taking your class."

It wasn't like what Dante was was a secret. Pointed questions just brought out the snotty in him.

"Why do you care?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: looking down)

"You don't need to know shit," Dante retorted. Just to make that clear.

"My dad was a demon. My mom wasn't. There, now you can get out of my hair."

"Exactly what about your class makes you need to know anything about me besides how I fight?" Dante said, raising his eyebrows. "'Cause I hate to break it to you, but this is just a fucking summer workshop."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: squinty)

Which was why Dante had pointed out the 'how I fight' part. That was relevant. She didn't need to know about any of the demon shit for that.

"Bussing tables, or are you the milkmaid?" Dante asked sarcastically. "Running around with a trinket like that 'cause you need to know what species to deliver mail to?"

It was Dante's turn to roll his eyes at her.

"My mom's an angel," he tossed out casually. "Just in case you show up with some more glowing dime-store jewelry next time."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - beat-up cautious)

Dante didn't know which part she was responding to. So he just matched her expression and said, "Yeah, really."

"From what I hear, most angels are kind of dicks," Dante said. "What, you think you're a cousin or something?"

"I am," Dante said, his expression going more-- alert, yeah. "That's what they call me, anyway."
