44) Adam Campbell, senior (732) Says fellow student Jessica Cave says she saw 10 shooters at the school(Jessica herself was not interviewed).

What did the ear witnesses hear? Numerous students heard gunshots/explosions in different parts of the school simultaneously. Which of course probably meant more than two shooters, as Harris and Klebold were officially together almost the entire time. To wit:

45) Sara Houy, sophomore (380) Heard bombs in cafeteria below, while shooters were inside library, exploding bombs.

46) Josh Lapp, sophomore (480) Heard gunfire in other parts of the school while attack on library is going on.

Among the best evidence are witnesses who actually identified other participants by name.

58) Crystal Archuleta, junior (EP1-197) “…she did see one person throw a pipe bomb. …..She told me at the time she thought it was Robert Perry.”

59) Seth Dubois, freshman (EP21-125) “…Seth told Katherine(Carlston) that Robert Perry was seen shooting a girl in the back while leaving the library.”

60) Wade Allen Frank, senior (EP1-91) “Mr. Frank told me that he thought origonally one of the individuals(shooting) was someone by the name of Robert…” “He stated that the person was tall, approximately 6'3” and kind of ackward(sic) and gangly.“

61) Bryan Frye, sophomore (EP25-69) "He stated that the person he had previously believed this shooter to be was Robert Perry. …..In a previous interview, after receiving his yearbook, he had told his father that he believed the shooter to be Robert Perry. He also stated that the gunman had bad acne.”

62) Courtney Haulman, freshman (EP25-91) “There was three guys. The guy I remember most was the main guy. He’s over 6’ tall and has long curly dark-colored hair. He was wearing a trench coat. His name is Robert Perry.”

63) Lacey Hohn, freshman (EP1-186) “…can you identify or descibe who was shooting? ….Ms. Hohn said that she does not believe it was Harris or Klebold. Ms. Hohn believes it was an individual named Robert.”

64) Bijen Monty, junior (EP1-110) “I asked her if she saw the source of the shooting. She told me she saw who she thought, at the time, was Robert Perry with a gun hanging around his neck. She said she never actually saw him shoot the weapon. "She asked me if I had any information in regards to Robert Perry. I informed her I did not.”

65) Tessa Nelson, freshman (EP1-113) “I asked her if she saw the source of the shots. She said she saw a male, who she thought was Robert Perry, wearing boots, dark jeans with dark hair, walking down the stairs outside the cafeteria. She said the male suspect pulled a gun and started shooting.”

66) Katelyn Sue Place, freshman (EP21-285) Kate said, “It was (Redacted). I’m almost positive of it. I remember looking him dead in the eye. He was in my debate class….…..Dylan kind of looked like Robert, but Dylan doesn’t have the long face. Robert’s teeth are messed up and he was smiling and I saw his teeth then. Kate said that she has since seen pictures of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, and she said, "It’s not one of them.”(Referring to the person she saw shooting out on the outside commons.) “She remembers him shooting Ann Marie(Hochalter). …. Robert was just randomly shooting. …Robert was still shooting. ….Kate said that Robert shot Ann Marie before he smiled at Kate. ….She looked and saw Jason(Autenrieth) trying to help Ann Marie, dragging her away from Robert, to the side.”

67) Lacey Smith, junior (4470) “On the diagram she depicts (Redacted) as walking in through the doors, past where she was sitting, and going in about as far as they north end of the school store. It was at that time she heard the windows breaking and then realized she was hearing shots. ”….she did not have any trouble indentifying PERRY when he walked past her. I asked SMITH how sure she was that the person she saw and spoke with was (Redacted). I asked, “90 percent sure? 50 percent sure?” Her response was “100 percent sure.” I then showed SMITH a photo lineup which included a picture of Dylan KLEBOLD, and asked her if the person who walked past her was in the lineup. She stated he was NOT in the lineup. …..As (Redacted) passed her and was near the commons area of the cafeteria, she then explained that (Redacted) pulled a weapon out from under his trench coat and started firing into the cafeteria.

68) Brenton Hooker, junior (16397) “….he turned around and observed an individual he thought was ROBERT PERRY(ex-student of Columbine High School) standing outside the door just to the north of the main entrance shooting a pistol in his direction….” ….HOOKER described the individual he thought was PERRY as 6'8” - 6'11" in height, very skinny, tight black pants, black trench coat…“

75) Ashley Egelund, freshman (22671) “Ashley was in north corridor when she observed (Redacted) and Eric Harris coming around the corner from the library…. She said Chris Morris was armed with a handgun while Harris was armed with a shotgun.(5248 ) ….both started shooting at Ashley…. Ashley did not know (Redacted) at first but she saw his picture in the yearbook and is positive it was (Redacted).

76) Leiha Murphy, sophomore (3828) In the cafeteria, notices commotion outside north-west door. "I saw a guy I recognized as (Redacted). He was running… (Joe)Stair had his blond hair down. It’s past his shoulders. He’s about 6’, tall, skinny, he was wearing a long black trench coat…. I saw nothing in his hands. He was observed a short distance from whatever was going on at the door. My thought was that (Redacted) was involved if there was a fight.” Stair named in the cafeteria map(3830). Leiha also immediately picked him out of a photo lineup. “I ask Leiha if she was certain that this individual was (Redacted). Leiha said "Oh yeah, I’m certain…. I saw his face full on. I remember seeing his face completely….(she said he stood in place for about 15 seconds)….I remember him graduating last year.” She remembers him wearing 'makeup on his face and hand’ and that because of that, he stood out from other students.“ ” (3836) Also, at least four ear- witnesses heard the suspects refer to one of their number as “Joe.”(Encinas, 2943, Herivel, 1927, McKenna, 3525, and Salazar, EP21-224)

77) Cara Sander, sophomore (EP25-203) Describes gunman as pudgy, overweight, very full face, thick bushy eyebrows. IDs him as (Redacted), who is heavy-set with a round face, short dark hair and dark eyebrows. A copy of the CHS yearbook page with Brian Sargent’s photo is included in her interview. [John Ungerland(1701) says Brian Sargent has a round chubby face and is a big guy with bushy eyebrows. He saw him that morning at school; Sargent was wearing a short sleeve white button-up shirt-a polo type.]

78) Jason Brehm, sophomore (719) One of the shooters had a very round face, shorter than 5'11”. Not Harris or Klebold.

79) Mindy Pollock, freshman (10009) Sees one gunman outside west entrance, holding a gun on the fence. …Dressed in a “white dress-type shirt”, short brown hair, with a “little bit of a gut”. “POLLOCK stated she recognized the lower, #1 gunman as (Redacted).”(1095)

80) David Eagle, sophomore (1878) “The guy with the gun had black hair looked like it was spiked shaved on the sides.(sic) It was also blond on top. 5'9”, about 18 years old. “He has since seen pictures of Harris and Klebold on television. …David said that the person he saw did not look like the people he’s seen on television.”

83) Jen Smull, sophomore (2182) In science hall, sees Klebold and an older suspect, 25-30, blond with short, spiky, buzz-cut hair.

84) Nathan Anema, freshman (2359) “….Anema identified (Redacted) as possibly being the person he saw throw a pipe bomb during the shooting at Columbine High School on 4-20-99. …Anema stated that he initially thought the person that he saw throwing the pipe bomb was (Redacted).”

85) Katy Beer, freshman (6636) “…. when the incident began at Columbine High School, she initially tried to get out of the school by going toward the main doors on the east side of the school by the administrative offices, however, she said she saw a third shooter next to these offices and that this third shooter shot out windows at that location. …Katy Beer told him this third shooter may have been (Redacted).”

86) Leanne Clark, freshman (1422) “…Clark told her that she saw who did the shooting in the cafeteria, and that Clark identified (Redacted) as a gunman.”

87) Frank DeAngelis, School Principle(8018) “I also assisted the principle of Columbine, who was having hard time giving the pictures of possible suspects to the command post and was present when he looked at and identified one of the suspects he was named.(sic) The male suspect was in the custody of, I believe, Jefferson Co. Sheriff’s investigators.”

Also attached is a 1A envelope is a diagram of Columbine High School indicating the diection of Hengel and the two individuals dressed in black.” Apparently the interviewing officer didn’t like what he was hearing, and so the interviewer ends up telling the eyewitness what he saw: “I then advised Mark Hengel that the skinny person he saw standing and shooting was Dylan Klebold and the person he saw standing over the duffel bag was Eric Harris.”

90) AnneMarie Hochalter, junior, gunshot victim outside the cafeteria (18218) “Advised that Harris/Klebold did not shoot her. …. Has ID on shooters.”

99) Terry Lawson, junior (10020) ID other than Harris and Klebold.

100) Monica Schuster junior (19470) “Schuster saw gunman but did not believe it was Harris and Klebold.”

101) Kacey Ruegsegger, junior, gunshot victim in library (128) “Ruegsegger did not recognize the pictures of Harris and Klebold she has seen in the media as the gunmen in the library.”

The historical context of Columbine seldom gets any mention in the mainstream media. State after state had legalized conceal carry laws for law abiding citizens. As each state passed those laws, crime plummeted.
The gun-grabbers were losing the PR war over the issue of gun control as it became clear that armed citizens are adeterrent to crime. The gun-grabbers needed a public relations event so horrific that the emotional reaction to it would outweigh all possible logical arguments on the issue of gun control. Colorado was on the verge of passing a conceal carry law. Then Columbina happened, and the national move towards allowing law abiding citisens to carry concealed weapons slammed to a complete halt.

Certainly there are many interests that oppose private citizens being able to stop crime. Organized crime tops that list, followed by many polioce officials who see their own authority and pensions threatened by a public able to take care of themselves. Finally there are the pro-dictatorship forces in the US which see a disarmed and hyelpless population as crucial to their designs.

It is in this context that the very odd aspects of the Columbine shooting need to be examined. Looking back from a time when we know the government lied about weapons of mass destruction, and with 84% of Americans no longer trusting the official story of 9-11, it is valid to ask if Columbine was a staged event to trick Americansinto surrendering their Second Amendment rights.

The White T-shirt Bomber There were a couple of publicized interviews of students on 4/20/99, in which students claimed to have seen three suspects. The official report, which came out several months later, claimed that these people were confused. The report claims that they saw Eric Harris both before and after he took of his trench coat, and thus thought that he was two different suspects. Now, the southwest side of Columbine is where the shooting began, and it is a jumble of corners, angles and hills. People near the West entrance would not be able to see around to the stairs. People by or down the stairs would not be able to see the West entrance. So, only the witnesses further away would have the best perspective on the unfolding events. What do these witnesses say? THE WITNESSES Chris Wisher (page 1261 in the 11,000 pages of released files) Chris states that he was behind the cafeteria about 100 yards away, and heard what he thought were fireworks. He turned and saw two kids wearing trench coats, and one kid wearing a white T-shirt who was throwing bombs onto the school. One of the trench-coated kids shot a shotgun at him, and then other kid in a trench coat had an automatic rifle. A little later, he and his friends also saw a person with a gun hiding in the bushes in Weaver Park. Jake Apodaca (page 653) He states that he saw 3 suspects, simultaneously. He was at the soccer field, heard firecrackers. He turned and saw two guys carrying shotguns, wearing black trench coats, black berets, black pants, black army boots, and black T-shirts. He had seen them at school before, but could not find them in the yearbook. A 3rd guy wearing a white T-shirt, jeans, light brown hair, that he had not seen him at school before, was seen throwing bombs onto the roof. It is not stated if the 3rd suspect had a gun or not. Jake also states that he saw a gunman with a shotgun hiding in the bushes in Weaver Park. Jonathan Cole (page 749) He states that he had met up with Jake Apodaca and Chris Wisher outside the main West entrance. There, he noticed two tall guys in black trench coats, no hats, one had on a ski mask, and one had “puffy” hair. One had a white T-shirt under his coat, the other had a black or dark T-shirt. These 2 walked over to top of the hill and looked down toward the cafeteria. He then saw a third male, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, exit the school through the same door. This person looked over to the other two suspect, and yelled “GO!! GO!!”. The two suspects pulled out guns and began shooting. Jonathan began running, looked back and saw the person in the white T-shirt throwing some bombs onto the roof, which exploded. Several days later, when students were allowed back into the school to claim their belongings, he saw the white-t-shirted bomb-thrower at the school. This person is described as being 5'10", wearing black glasses, and having collar length blondish brown hair. Jonathan was shown a photo lineup, but could not identify him as one of those suspects. Jonathan was about 73’ to 75’ away from the gunmen, but could not identify them. William Arapkiles (page 660) On 5/5/99, Billy states that he was at the soccer field, and heard firecrackers. He turned and saw 3 people near the West entrance. Two were wearing black trench coats, and carrying guns. The third was wearing a white T-shirt, and no visible gun. The person in the white T-shirt was pacing back and forth about 5’ away from the two gunmen. He saw the gunmen shoot toward the ground and into the air. He saw them shoot one person near the top of the stair, and another at the bottom of the hill, then a third victim that was trying to run away across the parking lot. The shooter then shot at the witnesses on the soccer field. Billy observed actions of one shooter, which seemed to him to be a jammed gun. Don Arnold (page 666) Don states that he was on the soccer field, heard firecrackers, and turned toward the school. He saw a “short, pudgy” male in a white T-shirt that was throwing bombs onto the roof. He did not see this person having a gun. Don saw another male standing at the top of the hill, shooting toward the parking lot. Don had gone shooting with his father before, and knew the sounds of gunshots. He heard two different gunshot sounds – one was a shotgun, and the other was not. This shooter then turned and shot 5 or 6 time toward the soccer field using a shotgun. He saw that this shotgun was a pump shotgun. Pat Neville (page 1043) On 5/6/99, gave an account much like Don Arnold’s. He was by the soccer field, heard firecrackers, turned and saw two suspects. One in a black trench coat, tall, all in black, shooting people with a long gun. The other had a white T-shirt, blue jeans, no visible gun, and was throwing bombs onto the roof. Arthur Curtis (page 765) Arthur was also on the soccer field. He only saw 2 shooters. One was tall, with long hair, and wore a black trench, the other wore a white T-shirt. He saw the one in the black trench coat carrying a sawed-off shotgun. Arthur states that he could identify the one in the trench coat if given a picture. He saw them shoot at groups of people and at the soccer field witnesses. He reported that the one in the white T-shirt descended the stairs, fired a few shots, and went back up the stairs. Mike Kenny (page 938) Mike was also on the soccer field when here heard a noise like firecrackers. He looked and saw two people about 100 yards away. One was in a black trench coat and black pants and was holding a TEC-9, the other was about 10 feet behind him and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. They appeared to be together. The one in the trench coat was shooting, but Mike couldn’t tell if the one in the white T-shirt was shooting or not. The trench coat shooter shot at the players on the soccer field, who ducked and ran. Mike looked back, and saw explosions on the roof. He did not see anyone throw a bomb up there, but either of the two suspects he did see could have thrown a bomb to that location. Jason Brehm (page 718) On 5/5/99, Jason give the following information: Jason walked out the West main doors, and saw a figure in a black trench coat, leaning against a post outside the library North door. This person was a little shorter than 5'11", with a round face, and was not Eric or Harris. This person had a black hat turned backward, black boots, and one pants leg tucked into a boot. This person also has a large, full, black nylon bag with straps at his feet. Jason walked to the soccer field, heard firecrackers, and turned around. He turned, and saw the guy in the trench coat still there, with smoke rising beside him. He said this lone gunman walked down and back up the stair, shooting, then threw some bombs onto the roof, then ran back down the stairs and shot a different, louder gun, which Jason thinks was a shotgun. He thinks that was when Lance Kirkland was shot in the face. As Jason was running away, he saw a figure in a white T-shirt walking calmly from the parking lot towards the shooter. J-u-s-t-i-n Woods (page 1268) J-u-s-t-i-n was on the soccer field, and states that he was about 50 feet away, and saw two guys come out of the West entrance of the school. He identifies one shooter as Dylan, describes him as wearing a trench coat, a black hat, and no mask, carrying a handgun with a banana clip. He says that the other suspect wore a white shirt, black pants, boots, not hat, no mask, and more clean-cut that the other. This suspect had a shotgun, leaned against the fence and shot at people. Klebold was shooting at @#% and the other people on the soccer field as they ran away. He heard explosions, and saw smoke on the roof of the school. Bryan Stepp (page 1179) On 4/30/99, Bryan stated that he was playing soccer, and saw two guys near the West main entrance. One was wearing all black, black cargo pants, black trench coat, and a hat. The other suspect was wearing a black trench coat and a white shirt, and a hat. He saw the first suspect bend down and light fireworks or pipe bombs. When he stood up, Bryan could see he held a gun with a banana clip. He said that someone walked out of the West entrance door, and this suspect shot at this person, who then fell down. Bryan said that this suspect shot at students down the hill from him, and they all ran away except one, then the shooter shot at the student in the soccer field, who fled. When Bryan looked again, he heard explosions and saw smoke above the roof of the school. He also saw the banana-clip shooter shoot out the windows in the double doors of the West main entrance, then both shooters walked down the stairs toward the cafeteria, where they shot out a window. Evan Vitale (page 1243) On 4/20/99, Evan stated that he was in the Sr. parking lot, in a car that was about to leave school. He heard a “pop pop pop” and looked, and saw a kid on the top of the hill, shooting a rifle, about 30 shots. This gunman was wearing a white T-shirt, a trench coat, black pants, had dark hair and dark skin. He saw another individual in a dark trench coat, a black ball cap worn backwards, and long, blond hair, who was running up and down the stairs outside the West side of the cafeteria. As the car began pulling out, Evan noticed a third suspect. This person was stand by the wall next to the West side of the cafeteria. This suspect was holding a pump shotgun, and wore a white shirt and black pants. He was very sure this was not Dylan. Evan did not believe it possible for this suspect to be the same as the shooter on the hill, as it seemed that this would have required this person to move too far too fast. Trent Karnes (page 911) Trent was the driver of the car Evan Vitale was riding in. He was in the parking lot when he heard what he thought was someone roofing. It was 6 or 7 rapid gunshots. He turned and saw a person at the top of the outside stairs, holding a rifle, leaning on a fence, shooting down the hill at people. He was wearing a white dress shirt, black dress pants, and a thin black vest. Trent saw another person, about 6'2" or 6'3" tall, in a black trench coat, black pants, medium brown shoulder length hair, a black leather hat, and sunglasses. He saw this person running up and down the stairs, apparently looking at the victims between groups of shots by the first person. Trent estimated the distance at between 100 and 200 yards. He also mentions that there was a kid wearing a white T-shirt and faded blue jean shorts, standing, watching and smiling. He thinks this kid was not part of it, only that he thought it was a joke, as apparently did the other people he saw smiling as they ran. Mindy Pollock (page 1093) On 4/26/99, she gave this information to the FBI: She was about to get into Trent’s car with Evan, where she heard firecrackers. She looked, and saw a man running up and down the stairs, and another standing at the top of the stairs shooting people. She thought is a skit. She described the running man as wearing black pants, black shirt, a black hat backwards, a black trench coat, and carrying a silver handgun, which she did not see him shoot. She described the shooter as wearing black pants, a white shirt, black suspenders, a red hat backwards, and a huge black gun. THE CONCLUSIONS Summary table deleted here. I’ll edit in a reformatted version later. We know Harris was wearing a white T-shirt, but did the investigators come to the correct conclusion that every sighting of a suspect in a white T-shirt was Harris? Of the 15 sightings listed above, only 7 are consistent with Harris. Even with these 7, 3 are clearly inconsistent with the official timeline. (See detailed analysis of the witnesses’ accounts below.) Put another way: of the 14 people that witnessed these events, only 4 gave statements consistent with the description and activities of Eric Harris, as seen in the Sheriff’s Report. Most telling however, is that no less than 4 witnesses saw 3 suspects AT THE SAME TIME. These 4 witnesses were Chris Wisher, Jake Apodaca, Jonathan Cole, and William Arapkiles. This is very, very strong corroboration - corroboration that was either overlooked or ignored. Two others had strong evidence of a third suspect. These two were Don Arnold and Evan Vitale. It is certainly reasonable to assume that not every witness will see every suspect. So, for the sake of argument, lets suppose that there was a third, T-shirt wearing bomb thrower, and see how well the witnesses’ statements support this. Please note we will not be counting the failure to notice a suspect as an anomaly. This could easily be accounted for by a bad angle, or by the witness focusing on the more immediate threat rather than surveying the scene carefully. Since we know that Harris wore a white shirt as well, how can we tell the two apart? Well, Harris wore black pants, had a gun, and spent all of his time outside the school at the top of the hill, shooting people (according to the official report). The possible 3rd suspect, as reported by the 4 witnesses who saw 3 suspects at once, wore blue jeans, had no gun, and threw bombs onto the roof. Do any of the other witnesses report a shooter that more closely matches our hypothetical bomber? Lets examine each: Don Arnold: The description of the trench-coated shooter with a pump shotgun, shooting from the top of the hill, much more closely fits Harris that Klebold. Since the suspect in the white T-shirt does not match Klebold at all, he must be a 3rd suspect. Don hears two distinct weapons, but the suspect in the white T-shirt did not have a gun, which also strongly indicates a 3rd suspect. Pat Neville: The description of the trench-coated shooter much more closely fits Harris that Klebold. Which means the suspect in the white T-shirt must be a 3rd suspect. Arthur Curtis: The description of this suspect in a white T-shirt fits Harris very well. Mike Kenny: This report has little information, but Mike did notice the explosion, and since the suspect in the white T-shirt was wearing blue jeans and had no visible gun, it does give more support to the white T bomber theory. Jason Brehm: This muddled account is mostly likely a combination of Harris and Klebold. J-u-s-t-i-n Woods: A sighting of Harris without a gun seems most likely. Who threw the bombs is unclear. Bryan Stepp: Given the sparse details, it is most likely Harris Evan Vitale: The 3rd suspect could possibly have been Harris. Even if it was not, this suspect is not the white T-shirt bomber as described above. Trent Karnes: The shooting suspect in a white T-shirt is consistent with Harris. The other person mentioned seems most likely to be uninvolved Mindy Pollock: This suspect also is consistent with Harris. So, let’s try these groupings: Arthur Curtis, Jason Brehm, J-u-s-t-i-n Woods, Bryan Stepp, Trent Karnes, Mindy Pollock, and Evan Vitale do not report seeing this white T-shirt bomber. The person in a white T-shirt that they do see conforms well to Harris’s description. If we assume that the official timeline is erroneous in not having Harris go down the stairs, then they are very consistent. Don Arnold, Pat Neville, and Mike Kenny saw a suspect that very strongly supports the account of the bomber seen by Chris Wisher, Jake Apodaca, Jonathan Cole, and William Arapkiles. SUMMARY: There was a third accomplice, the White T-shirt Bomber. Switching to this theory instead of a two-shooter theory, the number of anomalous testimonies falls from 11 to 4. (Evan, Jason, Trent and Mindy all reported a shooter that may not have been Eric or Dylan). Of the 14 witnesses, four witnesses saw him simultaneously with Eric and Dylan, and 3 other witnesses saw him with one of the two shooters. Put in percents: No white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 73% With white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 28% If we factor out the anomalies that do not directly relate to the white T-shirt bomber, we have: No white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 50% With white T-shirt bomber: Anomalous reports: 0% None. Zip. Seven corroborating witnesses, four of whom saw 3 suspects simultaneously. Furthermore, none of the seven reports about the white T-shirt bomber contradict each other. And the theory much more closely aligns with the actual witnesses’ reports than does the official report.
Show Report for April 20, part 1

This is my second attempt at a show report, because Chrome crashed when I was halfway through the first attempt and I lost it all. ☹ I’m sorry, but I don’t have time to proof read it now as I’m leaving for part 2 in a few minutes. :D

One of the things I really noticed this time was how many hints towards Delphi’s true nature are sprinkled about the earlier parts of the play. I’ve mentioned before how much I love that moment after Delphi and Harry have shaken hands when Harry kind of pauses, looking perplexed, and keeps his hand aloft. It’s very subtle, but Jamie does it every time. And then, once Delphi’s left the stage, Harry flexes his fingers and then shakes them.

Another hint is the discrepancy between what Delphi tells Albus on the stairs when they first meet and what she tells Scorpius when she’s manipulating him on the stairs at Hogwarts. She tells Albus how “they used to do all sorts” with her name when she was at school. And she tells Scorpius that she never went to school.

My favourite thing is something I really noticed last night, sitting so close to the stage. It’s the final moment of act one, where Delphi, Scorpius and Albus are gathered around the Time-Turner in Hermione’s office. Scorpius is holding the book containing the Time-Turner, Delphi to his left (if you’re in the audience) and Albus to his right. The Time-Turner floats above the book in his hands, glowing and spinning, lighting up their faces. Scorpius, looking scared, says, “Good. This is going to be good.” And then, simultaneously, both Delphi and Albus reach towards the Time-Turner with looks of greed on their faces.

It’s chilling once you know why.

The rest in order:

fdfsajf;ajskd;

Keep reading

For cavycas since she needs a distraction from some homework. I hope it turned out okay…

Dean let out an annoyed sigh, slightly exaggerated, as his eyes drifted up from the book in front of him and to the boy beside him, “Can’t we take a break?”

“We took a break twenty minutes ago.” Castiels gravely voice was laced with humor, “I assume you want a higher grade than a ‘C’ on this project, correct?” He smirked and tried not to stare at those green eyes for too long, but god they were so green, and the fact they were staring right back at him never helped. A few seconds passed before he finally willed himself to pull his stare away, "As soon as we finish with the research, we’ll leave.”

Dean only furrowed his brows together in response and huffed, turning his gaze back down to the dusty old book he had been working with for over three hours. Okay, it wasn’t dusty and old, but he still hated it. Right now, he could be at home in his bed and making out with his hot as hell boyfriend. But instead he had to sit next to him in the library, fighting back every urge not to attack him with lust then and there. This sucked.

“Did you find the answer yet?” Cas turned back to his boyfriend and sighed when he caught him staring off into space, “Dean.”

"What-huh?”

“Did you find it?”

“Find what?”

A rather loud sigh, “You know, I’m not doing this project all by myself. Just because you’re cute doesn’t mean you’re an acception.”

“Really? I would have thought differently, according to last night.” Dean wiggled his brows and grinned to himself with satisfaction when Cas’ cheeks beamed red. He leaned over and placed his hand on Castiels thigh underneath the desk they sat at, “Last night was pretty amazing, wasn’t it?”

“Dean. S-Stop.” Cas swallowed hard, trying to ignore his boyfriends hot breath against his ear and lingering hand traveling up his thigh, “We-we need to…”

“What, baby? What to we need to do?” Dean’s hand slowly moved higher until he reached his goal, “What do you want to do?”

Castiel didn’t have many weaknesses, but Dean Winchester was one of them. Especially when Dean Winchester was currently palming him in the middle of the damn library when they were supposed to be researching. He wanted so badly to be able to pry his boyfriend off of him, to tell him that now wasn’t the time, but instead he leaned into his touch and suppressed a moan.

The smile of accomplishment was practically heard as Dean nibbled on Cas’ ear. Thank god no was was around, “We can finish this later, can’t we? I can think of a few things I know you’d rather do.”

Castiel gripped the edge of his chair with one hand and buried his face in the other, his cheeks scarlet red from Deans touch. He could have sworn he was going to draw blood from biting down on his lip so hard to keep quiet, and he took a deep breath before finally finding the strength to speak, “Not here.”

Dean chucked at his boyfriends comment, more like a hiss, and pulled his hand away, “You’re right. We need to get this done.”

"What?” Castiels head shot up. His hair was naturally tousled but his eyes were gleaming with desire, “Now you want to stay here?”

He shrugged, “What can I say? I like to see you squirm.”

"I hate you.”

“No you dont. Pass me that book, will you?”

“Dean.”

“What?”

They sat silently, staring at each other now. The sexual tension was so strong, Dean was sure the entire library would explode from it.

Then Castiel was kissing him. He hardly took Dean by surprise, but kissing him like this in a place that was supposed to be for studying, wasn’t something that happened, ever. He was practically straddling him, tongue sweeping over the boys plump lips as his hands pulled at his hair. Dean moaned into him and cupped his cheeks softly, but just as he began to kiss back, Cas pulled away.

“So, onto the next question.” Castiel playfully smirked and opened one of the many stacked books that they were forced to read that semester, “I think we should find the answer in chapter three.”

Dean lifted his left brow, the freckles on his nose following suit as it twitched, “Oh, so this is a game now, Novak?”

“Two can play, Winchester.” Cas didn’t even so much as turn his head in Dean’s direction, but instead leaned back and propped both legs up on the desk, resting the book on his thighs, “Two can play.”

“Let’s make this interesting.” Dean shrugged off his jacket, revealing his tone arms which he knew would get a reaction from his admirer, and smirked, “Whoever caves first has to do whatever the winner says tonight. You uderstand?”

Castiels eyes only rested on Deans arms for a second before he purposely dropped the book from his lap, stood, and bent over to pick it up. His hips were very close to Deans face and he smiled when hearing a sharp intake of breath, “I understand.”

They both licked their lips as Castiel took his seat and pretended to read, when really he was plotting his next play. Dean wasn’t innoccent, and had the next two actions memorized as he turned to his boyfriend.

Let the games begin.

2 STUDENTS IN COLORADO SCHOOL SAID TO GUN DOWN AS MANY AS 23 AND KILL THEMSELVES IN A SIEGE

By JAMES BROOKE

LITTLETON, Colo., April 20— In the deadliest school massacre in the nation’s history, two young men stormed into a suburban high school here at lunch time today with guns and explosives, killing as many as 23 students and teachers and wounding at least 20 in a five-hour siege, the authorities said.

The two students who are believed to have been the gunmen, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, who were students at Columbine High School, were found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds in the library, said Steve Davis, the spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

Beginning about 11:30 A.M., the gunmen, wearing ski masks, stalked through the school as they fired semiautomatic weapons at students and teachers and tossed explosives , with one student being hit nine times in the chest by shrapnel, the authorities said. Gunshots continued to ring out at the school for hours. One bomb exploded in the library, officials said, and one in a car outside. Two more cars were rigged with bombs.

About 3 P.M., hundreds of police officers evacuated the building and searched for the gunmen. Their bodies and those of several of their victims appeared to have been wired with explosives.

Sheriff John Stone said, “It appears to be a suicide mission.”

Mr. Davis said that as many as 25 people were dead, “a mixture of students and faculty.” He said that most of the bodies were found in the school’s entrance, the library and the commons cafeteria. No precise death toll was available.

Kaleb Newberry, 16, said: “I was in class and one teacher came in and basically told us to run for our lives, I saw a girl maybe five paces behind me fall. She was shot in the leg, but a teacher helped her.”

Students said the gunmen were part of a group of misfits who called themselves the trench coat mafia, which expressed disdain for racial minorities and athletes. Members of the group found their way out of anonymity at the school by banning together, dressing in dark gothic-style clothing including long black coats. They became easy to notice among the 1,870 students at the school, since every day, regardless of the weather, they wore their coats. [Page A17.]

Today the gunmen appeared to aim at minority members and athletes at the 1,800-student school, as well as peers who had poked fun at the group in the past.

School officials had had no reports of trouble from the suspects, Mr. Davis said.

Some victims were forced to wait inside the school for rescue. By early evening, bodies had not been removed because of the crime scene investigation and the possible presence of explosives, a spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department said.

Mr. Davis said at a news conference tonight that two other students at the school, thought to be friends of the gunmen, were in custody for questioning in connection with the shooting.

“You can’t really go in and do this kind of damage without a lot of preparation.” Mr. Davis said, “without a lot of ammunition and apparently some type of bombs.”

Fourteen-year-old Katie Corona, said she was trapped in a classroom with her teacher and about 30 classmates for hours.

“I thought I was going to die,” she said. “I really didn’t think I was going to make it. We would hear shots, then we heard crying. We had no clue what was going on.”

“Everyone around me got shot and I begged him for 10 minutes not to shoot me,” one young woman, who was not identified, said tonight in an interview broadcast on the Cable News Network. “And he just put the gun in my face and started laughing and saying it was all because people were mean to him last year.”

Another student, who said she heard more gunshots while hiding in the closet with a teacher and some friends, said she kept thinking to herself, “This can’t be happening to our school.”

“You should be safe at school,” added a second young woman, who also was not identified. “This should be a safe place.”

The families of those killed were being notified tonight at Leawood Elementary School, where students and parents had gathered.

The mass shooting was the first at an American school during this academic year, but revived memories of similar tragedies that struck six different communities last year and set off national alarms about teen-age violence. Four girls and a teacher were shot to death and 10 people were wounded during a false fire alarm at a middle school in Jonesboro, Ark., last March.

President Clinton immediately dispatched a crisis-response team to aid the school community and the victim’s families.

“We don’t know yet all the how’s or why’s of this tragedy; perhaps we will never fully understand it,” the President said in a nationally televised news conference just before 8 P.M. “St. Paul reminds us that we all see things in life darkly, that we only partly understand what is happening.”

He added, “We do know that we must do more to reach out to our children and teach them to express their anger and to resolve their conflicts with words, not weapons.”

A sunny spring day turned into a bloody nightmare for this suburb of 35,000 people southwest of Denver, as ambulances ferried the injured from the high school, past tennis courts, a baseball diamond and a packed student parking lot.

“I hope we can all pull together, because we will need all our strengths,” Jane Hammond, Jefferson County superintendent of schools, said tonight. The blood banks in the Denver area have been overwhelmend with calls from donors. Tonight at least three church vigils for the dead and injured.

Just before 8 P.M., Lisa Appleton, 16, a sophomore, waited in front of the Leawood school for news of her best friend, Julie Toms, who had been missing since students began leaving the school.

“I can’t even feel it,” she said. “There’s no way to know whether she’s dead or alive.”

About 3 P.M., SWAT teams police officers used a fire truck and an armored car to get close to the building, dozens of students raced out of the two-story building, some slipping in the mud, others holding up their hands in the air or behind their heads. Police said they feared that the gunmen would try to escape by mingling with the trapped students.

One student, bloodied from an injury, broke out a second-story window, and climbed down into the hands of the police.

As police officers established a wide perimeter around the beige school, students and school workers gathered on nearby tree-lined streets and told of the chaos and horror inside the building.

As fire alarms rang in the halls, students who had seen the gunmen trampled each other to get out of the building, running through one exit where three bodies lay on a staircase.

Trapped inside, others took refuge in classrooms, bathrooms and a choir room, frantically barricading doors with desks and file cabinets.

One cafeteria worker who barricaded herself in a woman’s bathroom said, “We could hear them blowing the heck out of the place.”

A student, Jonathan Ladd, said, “I heard gunshots going off, bullets ricocheting off lockers.”

The trench coat mafia is a small band of about a dozen juniors and seniors at Columbine who are easily recognized yet little feared, according to people who live in the neighborhood near the school. Regardless of the weather, they favor long black coats and the Gothic look popularized by the rock singer Marilyn Manson, neighbors said. Some even wear white pancake makeup and dark eyeliner, one student said.

“It was that devilish, half-dead, half-alive look,” said Bret, a 16-year-old sophomore who spoke on the condition only his first name be used.

The group often gathered in the cafeteria after school. Chris McCaffrey, manager of Angie’s Restaurant a few blocks from Columbine, said that residents had known about the group for about five years, and that no one considered it a threat.

“Mostly it was just kids who nobody wanted to have anything to do with,” Mr. McCaffrey said. “They weren’t particularly feared. They were just a bunch of punks who kind of hang around the school.”

Students said the group was mostly boys, but that some girls appeared to be closely associated with it. One student described the group as “nerds, geeks and dweebs trying to find someplace to fit in.”

Bret suggested the mafia might have targeted athletes out of resentment for their own lack of popularity and success at school.

The students “weren’t really accepted as younger kids and as they got older they were accepted by this group,” Bret said. “They got their fair share of being picked on. I could understand that they might have targeted some of the more popular kids.”

David Mesch, another student, who was searching for his mother who works for the school, said, “They were wearing masks; they were members of the trench coat mafia.”

President Clinton said tonight that he was “profoundly shocked and saddened by the tragedy today in Littleton.”

In an age when cellular telephones are increasingly common among high school students, several trapped students called television stations when they could not get through on 911 lines.

“I hear a couple of gunshots, people running up and down,” a student said in a frightened whisper to KUSA-TV, a Denver television station. Identifying himself only as James, he added, “There are a bunch of kids downstairs, I can hear them crying.”

Aware that the gunmen might be watching on a classroom television set, he said, “I am staying upstairs,” and then hung up.

In a state with a relatively low crime rate, the siege after the shootings was broadcast live by Denver television stations, without commercial breaks all afternoon. Broadcast and cable networks turned to local affiliates for help with their coverage.

“This is a cultural virus,” Gov. Bill Owens of Colorado said before hurrying to the scene. Noting that he felt particularly affected by the tragedy because his 16-year-old daughter goes to a suburban Denver high school, he said, “We have to ask ourselves what kind of children we are raising.”

At the White House, the President said the nation should focus on praying for the victims’ families and others at the school. He said that Attorney General Janet Reno was closely monitoring the situation, and that he had spoken this afternoon with Governor Owens and Patricia Holloway, the county commissioner, whose comments he shared with the nation.

In midafternoon, police officers briefly detained three young white men who wore camouflaged pants and black jackets, next to the high school. After they were released, the men said they knew the gunmen inside the high school. Emblazoned on the back of one man’s jacket were the words, “Ban Religion” and a red-painted stop sign printed over a cross.

“Blood was going all over,” a shaken girl said, as she was comforted by her father. Those here were reminded of other school shooting incidents.

Bob Sapin, a student, told a television station minutes after watching the shootings, “I just can’t believe it is happening at my school.”
