Welcome to Kappa Kappa (originally Kappa Kappa Beta but that last part fell off), Lake Lilac University’s first and only co-ed fraternity!

I’m literal trash and also a community college student who still lives with their parents so I’LL TRY NOT TO MESS THIS UP:

Max-Everyone is sure he should have graduated by now, but he’s been in the dorm for so long and still has his major as “undeclared”. No one knows if he actually goes to LLU or not, he never attends class. He’s also somehow behind every out-of-control party or riot that happens on campus or in the dorm, or least DJing. Has been living in Kappa Kappa because it’s the cheapest but he hates everyone, especially the RAs. Nikki did his tattoo. 

Neil-STEM Major. Actually does his work and attends classes and was dead-set on not becoming a party kid, but is always the first one to get absolutely smashed at every party. Max’s roommate. 

Nikki-No one knows what her major is. Like Max, no one is entirely sure if she actually goes to LLU, but everyone seems to have a class with her. Often climbs in through peoples’ windows because she got “locked out again”, although no one actually knows which room is hers or if she actually lives in the dorm. Got kicked out of Gamma Lambda Sigma (AKA college Flower Scouts idk man) for being the wild child she is. Has been stopped by security/police multiple times because they all keep thinking she’s on drugs. Nah, it’s just Nikki. Good thing LLU has a rugby team (She’s really good but no one is sure if she actually plays for points or for the sake of beating people up).

2013

It was cool windy Saturday in the middle of Spetember. School had just started for me at Tulane University in New Orleans. I was a senior and had been in total bliss for the past three years. The reason? Kyle Spencer my amazing boyfriend. He was a frat boy and I was a frat girl. My fraternity was having a party tonight at the Zeta Kappa Mu house, aka my fraternity. Yes it was very popular for someone from our fraternitys to get together. I didn’t care it was fate for us to meet. It all happened when I was walking on campus on my first day at school and some jerk approached me.

2010

“Hey sugar! You want some of this?” this college boy asked as he started running towards me.

“No thank you.” I said trying to make him go away.

“Awwww. Don’t be like that baby. I just want to have some fun!”

“Well you better scram before my..” I hesitated and blurted out the first thing that came into my head,” boyfriend comes to meet me!”

“Oh really? Where is this so called boyfriend?”

“I just said that he was meeting me here soon.” I said getting annoyed that the guy wouldn’t go away. He started to approach me and I backed away. He got closer to me and grabbed my wrist.

“HEY! Get off of me!” I yelled.

“I thought you had a boyfriend.”He said. But little did I know that a boy heard the whole thing an decided to stop it before it went any farther.

“She does.” The boy said. I turned my head away from the from the college student and looked at the boy who saved my life. My (Eye Color) eyes met his dark brown eyes.

“I think you should get your hands off my girlfriend mister.” The boy said. The college guy then released his grip on my wrist and the boy wrapped his arm around my waist protectively.

“Like I told you, you better scram you know now since my boyfriend is here.” I said confidentley. The college guy looked at who had his arm around me and ran for his life.

The boy released his arm from my waist when we couldn’t see the jerk anymore.

“Thank you for doing that. I really appreciate that.” I said looking at the ground rubbing my arm.

“Hey don’t mention it. I can’t help myself from saving someone espically if it is a beautiful girl like yourself.” You immediatley blush at his compliment and look up in his eyes. “Kyle, by the way.” Kyle held at his hand and you took it.

“(Y/N)” You reply shaking his hand.

“Beautiful. Just like you.” Kyle responds. I chuckle lightly at his flirt. “What do you say we go and get a coffee?”

“I would love that.” I say. Kyle takes my hand and holds it. We walk to the coffe shop on camous, hands in hand. Ever since then we have been in love.

2013

Tonight Kyle and his frat brothers were coming to the party tonight. I was excited to see him because he just got back from a school trip for football. Yes I texted him if his team won adn he texted back saying that they killed the other team. Once I read the text I decided that we would have a party in celebration for their win as soon as they came back. They arrived early this morning so I sent out party invitations to everyone. Apparently the new of having a party reached outside the campus and reached to the movie star Madison Montegomery. I one-hundred percent believe that someone tweeted it and it got around EVERYWHERE. I wasn’t upset that more people were coming, I was actually happy. That means that I could show off to more people about how great my boyfriend is.

I started to get ready at eight o’clock since the party started at nine and supposedly to end at midnight but I doubt it. I got finished changing into my (Favorite Color) dress and went down the stairs to finish decorating. I hung up the red and blue disco lights and the ice sculpture of God knows what. It was about nine o’clock when people started flooding which was good. This party was much bigger but it is okay the more the merrier. I saw some guy name Chad enter with packages of beer which I didn’t really care unless underage people were drinking it. I just let it slide because I was too busy trying to watch when Kyle’s limo bus was going to arrive.

It was a good ten minutes of me just waiting until a big black bus arrived on the curb infront of the house. I got so excited and decided to wait for about five minutes becasue I knew that Kyle was giving his brothers the chat about public parties Do’s and Don’ts. That is one of the reasons why I loved his personality so much was because he was respectful and a gentlemen. I always had great respect for him because ever since hurricane Katrina he had been providing for his single mother.

Kyle finally came running out of his bus with his brothers yelling “ Kappa Lambda Gamma” which was their fraternity. He saw me sitting on the step waiting for him to arrive and he immediatley ran to me. Once I had seen what he was doing I started to run to him. We meet in the middle and he engulfed me in his arms picking me up.

“I missed you so much baby.” Kyle said sounding out of breath. He placed me down, removing his head from the crook in my neck, he looked at me and oushed back my hair that had been messed up in this form of affection.

“I missed you so much too Kyle.” I said. He smiled and put his hand around the back of my neck and leaned in. His lips met mine and we started to make out in the middle of the lawn. It lasted a long time of just us letting our emotions out.

“What is that speech that you always tell your frat brothers? Isn’t public embarrasment apart of that? So wouldn’t kissing your girlfriend infront of everyone apart of that?” I ask jokingly.

“Shut up.”Kyle said laughing while putting his arm around my shoulders bringing me closer to his chest.

“I love you.” I said.

“I love you too.” He said kissing my cheek. He brought me to the couch and sat me down. “I am going to go get us some drinks okay.”

“Okay.” He leaned down and kissed my forehead. Once he left I looked towards the front door and I saw Madison Montegomery and I guess her friend. I was totally shocked that she came. I mean seriously a stupid frat college party? I thought that was too D-list for ‘celebrities. Again I didn’t mind that she was here. I just hope that her attitude doesn’t get the best of her.

Kyle soon comes back with two red cups and smiles at me.

“Here is a Coca-Cola for the lady.” He said and handed it to me while sitting next to me on the couch and putting his arm around me pulling me closer ot him.

“Why thank you.” I said to Kyle with a smile on my face,”Okay so you HAVE to tell me all about your football game please?” i said pouting in a begging form.

“Okay all right since you asked so politely. Well we obviously won. It was fourty-two to four and so we basically creamed them majorly.”

“Obviously,” I said but then Kyle was interrupted by the girl that entered in with Madison Montegomery approached us.

“Excuse me, I am so sorry to bother you but I can’t find my friend Madison Montegomery. I have looked everywhere and I can’t find her can you please help me?”

“Yes of course.” Kyle and I said.

“Let’s look upstairs to see if she might have accidentally found her way up here.” I said. We started to open up all the doors until we came to last on eand we opened it and found Madison and Kyle’s frat brothers. We looked around and realized that they were all takign turns raping Madison adn taking pictures even Kyles best friend Archie was in on it. Kyle was furious.

“WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING? GIVE ME THE PHONE ARCHIE!” Kyle screamed. I had never seen him so mad in our entire relationship.

“NO KYLE! I am not giving you my phone so you can just delete the videos and pictures.”Archie said. Kyle started to run after Archie trying to retrieve his phone so he could not only delete it but so that he could beat him up for doing this. The girl who asked for Kyle and I’s help started to wake Madison up so she could walk downstairs and leave. I started to run after Kyle. I got to the front door and I saw all of the frat brothers and Kyle running into the bus. Then it started to drive off so I ran after it.

Madison and her friend weren’t that far behind when all of a sudden the buss flipped over and crashed. I saw it all happen and I fell to my knees crying. Once I had gotten the courage to get up I ran over to the flipped over bus and pried open the doors. I looked around and I saw Kyle, lying there in pieces. I rushed over to him and brought his chest and head close to my body and kissed him, over and over again.

“NOOOO KYLE! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE?”I yelled. I brought my head closer to his ear and whispered.”Everything I wanted was you. I love you so much. Why did you have to leave me? We were supposed to grow old together. I love you.” i finally got up and started to get up and walk away. Once that I had left the bus there was blood all over me. I started to cry and I ran back to the frat house which was empty probably due to everyone hearing the crash, getting scared and running.

I closed the door and locked it. I collapsed to the floor crying knewing that I was never going to get my happy ending with Kyle. I went upstairs, took a shower and cried myself to sleep knowing that there was never going to be a day with Kyle or so I thought.

The Next Day

I woke up and decided to go visit Kyles mom to see how she was doing with the news about Kyle. I got dressed and drove over to his house that i had been over a million times. I knocked on the door and Mrs. Spencer opened the door with a tear stained face.

“Mrs. Spencer? It’s me (Y/N).” I said knowing that she would remember me as Kyles girlfriend.

“Oh yes (Y/N), please come in.” She opened the screen door and welcomed me into her house. After I had entered seh had engulfed me into in a hug and the waterworks started to fall from my face. I pulled away and Mrs. Spencer gave me a tissue and I whispered out a ‘Thank you.’

“I came to see how you were doing.” I said looking into her eyes and seeing that she was so upset. She should be she just lost her son.

“Thank you for doing that (Y/N). I really do appreciate it. I think out of all the girls Kyle has brought home, you have always and will forever be my favorite.”

“Thank you. I know how difficult it must be losing you only son espically since you husband passed away. I just wanted to let you know that I am here for you. If you need someone to talk to please just call me and I will be there.” I said letting her know that she won’t go through this alone.

“Thank you so much. It means a lot to know that even though Kyle isn’t here that you will continue to be apart of this familly and I am forever thankful for you. Anyways I have something to show you. Kyle had all this stuff that he had for you in a bag so I feel like I should give it to you, even though he won’t”

“Okay.” I followed her to Kyle’s room and she opened the doors to his closet and bent down to get the bag. It was a large paper bag filled high with stuff. She handed it to me and I carried it and sat down on his bed and started to unpack it. “I hope you don’t mind that I am unpacking it here.”

“Oh no! Please go ahead. I wanted to know what was always in there so I hope you don’t mind that I am watching you open it.”

“Of course not.” I started unpacking and while I was unpacking I realized that these were presents for our upcoming anniversary of three years. I took out the first thing and it was a scrapbook filled with pictures of me and Kyle and little love notes he wrote. I sat there crying knowing that this must have taken him months to put together and he never got a chance to give it to me. The second thing I took out was a shirt that said “Watch Out Boys This Girl Is Taken By This Guy” and it had a picture of Kyle winking on the back. I laughed remembering his funny humor. There was only one thing left and I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a small red box. I took it out and started to cry knowing what it is. I opened the box and found a small diamond enagagment ring inside.

I showed it to Mrs. Spencer and she started to cry her eyes out.

“I always knew that was a question he was wondering about when he was going to ask. I guess he was going to ask on your three year anniversary.” she said. I put my hands over my eyes and cried even harder. I put the ring on my left finger in a way of saying yes to his question.

After that I bid Mrs. Spencer a goodbye and then walked out of the house. I was walking to my car that was a couple houses down. While I was walking I could have sworn that I saw that girl that Kyle and I helped from yesterday approach Mrs. Spencer’s house with her holding someone up. I ignored it knowing that it was just my mind playing tricks on me. I walked to my car and got in. I just sat for a long time looking at my engagement ring and crying. I eventually stopped and drove back to my frat house. I walked in and went upstairs to my room and locked the door.

A Couple Months Later

It has been a couple months since Kyle died and I couldn’t have felt more alone. Sometimes if I went out I would think that I would see him and the minute I blinked he was gone. Other than that I haven’t left my room. I miss him everyday. There is nothing that can replace him. I haven’t felt love, compassion, or happiness since he died. I wish he would come back.

Today I was forced to leave my room saying that I had a visitor at the door. I went downstairs and opened the door to find the girl that Kyle and I helped all those months ago.

“What do you want?” I ask with tears starting to fall from my eyes.

“I just want to show you something. Please come with me.” She said.

“Why should I go anywhere with you? I don’t even know your name!” I say

“Okay. My name is Zoe Benson.” Zoe said.

“You think just because you said that I am going to go with you?!” I said.

“Okay, fine! If you won’t come with me then just promise me that you will come to the cafe downtown. Please.” She begged.

“Alright I’ll be there. What time?” I asked.

“Just be there at noon. Okay?”

“Okay.”

“Thank you.”

“Do I need to bring anything?” I asked.

“Just bring yourself.” She said.

“Okay. Bye.” I said. Zoe waved a goodbye back to me. I was so confused. Why out of all the people on Earth does she have to come back? I went upstairs and got dressed. I looked at the clock and saw that it was eleven fourty. I exited the house and went to the driveway to my car. I got in and started to drive downtown to the coffee shop. I looked for a parking space near where Zoe was standing. I got out of the car and locked it. I walked over to her.

“So why am I meeting you here?” I asked.

“You are meeting me here because I have a surprise for you inside.” Zoe said.

“If it’s a guy then I am not interested.” I said and then I walked in.

“I don’t think so. Well at least not with this guy.” She said. I walked around trying to find out what she was talking about. I finally understood when my eyes met his. The same dark brown I fell in love with. I ran over to him with tears coming down my face. I ran into his arms and he held me close. I pulled back my head and started to pepper his face in kisses. I finally ended with his lips. There was all of my emotions, his emotions intertwined into this form of affection. He let me down and pulled out my chair for me to sit down.

“Kyle! How are you back?” I asked with tears running down my face.

“(Y/N), I know you aren’t going to believe me when I say this but please do.” I nodded my head in response.”Okay well I died you saw me. Zoe and Madison went to the hospital and retrived my body parts and sewed me together. Another thing is that they are witches. There is a whole coven of them okay. So I was crazy and I couldn’t speak. I was a lot like Frankenstein. It was a long time before I could speak. But then their supreme Fiona Goode fixed me. She did something to me where i could speak properly. I guess you coudl say she brought me back to normal. So I remembered all about you. I had never forgotten about you, I just didn’t have all the details. But I called for you and then Zoe decided that it was best if I came back now and so I did. That is where that story ended.” He said looking into my eyes.

“I don’t care how you came to be here. I am just glad that you are here with me. Kyle, you’re all I have you’re all I want.” I said and he just looked at me emotionless and then he smiled and leaned over to kiss me on the lips.

I put my hand on his cheek and he stopped kissing me and looked at my hand.

“Oh sorry. I forgot that my hand is probably is cold. Sorry.” I said.

“No it isn’t that.” He pulled my left hand towards his and at my ring finger. “You said yes?”Kyle asked.

“Of course I did Kyle. I love you with all my heart. I want to spend the rest of my life with you unless you don’t want to anymore.” I said looking down.

“Hey,” Kyle said putting his fingers underneath my chin and lifting my head up so I looked at him in the eyes,”I want to start off where we left off. I want to be with you. I want to call you my wife. I love you.” He said.

“I love you too.” I said. I am so happy that Zoe brought him back. I couldn’t ask for anything better. After that Kyle and I started to plan for our wedding. It was perfect. Now we are living in total bliss and there isn’t anything I could ask for more. I love him and he loves me.

Japan - Aichi Prefecture  Volcanic island of Minami Iwo Jima
- South Asia (Japan, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand)
- TOKUGAWA Danjo : descendant of the Matsudaira clan, founder of Mahoutokoro. Danjo Tokugawa is a stocky men, bald and fat. Severe in his instruction, he only wants the best of his students and doesn’t hesitate to exclude those who are not up to par.
Trivia :
- the school blazon is the Matsudaira clan’s “Mon”(circle around three Hollyhock leaves).
- only a member of the Tokugawa clan get the post of Headmaster / Headmistress.
- the school is formed by islets connected by bridges.
- there are a total of 11 islets : one building for the headmaster and teachers (school entry) ; one for the main building (classrooms and library) ; two dormitories (one for girls and one for boys) ; one for kitchens ; five for gardens ; and finally, a last which serves as training ground.
- in the most remote islet of gardens find a temple with a Go-Shinboku planted since the school’s founding.
- tutor system (senpei / kohai) is very present.
- students address their teachers by calling them “sensei”.
- the school is known for its large number of non-human spiritous apparition.
- even if everyone can follow any topic, some are qualify as feminin and other as masculin and it’s frowned upon to depart from the rule.
- even if everyone is accepted, students have to merit their places in school.
- school organizes annual sports festival. (Headmaster annually invites other schools to participate even if the answer was always negative.)
- the tests are : obstacle course; hunting flag; duel; demonstration ; Quidditch 

Móshùdifang, Institute of magic.
China - Guilin
- Central Asia (China, Korea, Tibet)
- XIE An : Madam Xie An is known internationally for having fought and tamed a dragon. Respectable Seers and apprentive of the most powerful Chinese sorcerer : she inherits his position as headmistress in place of the second apprentice (and newly Minister of Magic Chinese). She creates an atmosphere of mutual aid between students and encourages working group. She is very proud of his school and its students. She doesn’t like the current headmaster of Mahoutokoro.
Trivia :
- Móshùdifang’s blazon is a dragon surrounding the sinogramme of  "magic" and “place” in the center of a hexagon.
- it’s the second oldest school of magic.
- school starts at twelve years and lasts six years.
- the school is located atop a hill.
- each generation of students is supervised by a “governess” to guide them through their entire schooling.
- the tower that serves as a dormitory is organized so that each stage represents a year.
- the school specializes in enchantments and divination.


I may or may not begin a story (that I probably never finish) for each of these schools …

Some valued fields exercises, 2:

(on coarsening, specialization, and Henselianity):


Exercise. Let \((K,v)\) be a valued field with value group \(\Gamma\). Let \(\Delta\) be a convex subgroup of \(\Gamma\). Writing \(\Lambda \overset{\operatorname{df}}{=} \Gamma/\Delta\), define the \(\Delta\)-coarsening of \(v\) \(v_{\Delta}\) by \(v_{\Delta}(a) \overset{\operatorname{df}}{=} v(a) + \Delta \in \Gamma/\Delta\). One checks that \(v\) can be extended along the residue map \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}\) to a valuation \(v_{\Delta}\) on \(k_{v_{\Lambda}}\) by putting \(v_{\Delta}(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a)) \overset{\operatorname{df}}{=} v(a)\).

Then: \((K,v)\) is Henselian if and only if \((K, v_{\Lambda})\) and \((k_{v_{\Lambda}}, v_{\Delta})\) are Henselian.

Here is a helpful diagram from Asymptotic Differential Algebra And Model Theory of Transseries to help some of us visualize the situation:


(In the above, \(\dot{K}\) is the residue field for \(v_{\Lambda}\), and \(\dot{\Gamma}\) is \(\Lambda\).)

First, we note that there is a natural map between residue fields \(\sigma : k_v \to k_{v_{\Delta}}\), by putting \[k_v \ni a + \mathcal{M}_v \overset{\sigma}{\mapsto} \operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\delta}} \in k_{v_{\Delta}}.\]

This is well-defined: if \(c \in \mathcal{M}_v\), then \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a + c) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}} = \operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}\) since \(v( c ) > 0 \implies v_{\Delta}(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}( c )) > 0\). This is also obviously surjective.

Crucially, this is also injective: if \(a + \mathcal{M}_v \neq b + \mathcal{M}_v\), then \(a - b \not \in \mathcal{M}_v\), and so by how \(v_{\Delta}\) is defined, \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) - \operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(b) \not \in \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}\), so \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}} \neq \operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(b) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}\).

Therefore, \(\sigma\) is an isomorphism of residue fields \(k_v \simeq k_{v_{\Delta}}\).

Also, before we proceed, we need the following lemma (c.f. 3.3.9 of ADAMTT):

Claim. The following are equivalent:

  1. A valued field \((K, v)\) is Henselian.
  2. Each polynomial \(1 + X + P_2 X^2 + \dots + P_n X^n\) where \(P_2 \dots P_n \in \mathcal{M}_v\) has a root in \(\mathcal{O}_v\).

Proof of claim. That \(1\) implies \(2\) is immediate by taking \(a = -1\).

Conversely, assume \(2\). Let \(f(T) \in \mathcal{O}_v[T]\) and \(a \in \mathcal{O}_v\) satisfy \(\operatorname{res}_v(f(a)) = 0\) and \(\operatorname{res}_v(f’(a)) \neq 0\). Put \(c \overset{\operatorname{df}}{=} \dfrac{f(a)}{f’(a)^2}\), so that \(c \in \mathcal{M}_v\).

For an arbitrary \(x \in \mathcal{O}_v\), expanding binomials and grouping the \(j\)th members of each one yields

\[f(a + x) = f(a) + f’(a)x + \sum_{i \geq 2} \frac{1}{i!} f^{(i)}(a) x^i\]

\[= c f’(a)^2 + f’(a) x + \sum_{i \geq 2} \frac{1}{i!} f^{(i)}(a) x^i.\]

Rewriting \(x = c f’(a) y\) for \(y \in \mathcal{O}_v\), this becomes

\[f(a + x) = c f’(a)^2 \left( 1 + y + \sum_{i \geq 2} a_i y^i \right)\]

where the coefficients \(a_i\) belong to \(\mathcal{M}_v\) and do not depend on \(y\).

Now, the expression inside the parentheses falls under the scope of \(2\), so by assumption there exists a choice \(b’\) for \(y\) such that \(1 + y + \sum_{i \geq 2} a_i y^i = 0\).

To turn this into a root \(b\) for \(f\), put

\[b = a + x = a + c f’(a) b’\]

and since \(x \in \mathcal{M}_v\), \(\operatorname{res}_{v}(b) = \operatorname{res}_{v}(a)\), which gives Henselianity.

Proof. (of the exercise)

Now, suppose first that \((K,v)\) is Henselian.

To see that \((K, v_{\Lambda})\) is Henselian: We use the claim. Since \(\mathcal{O}_{v_{\Lambda}}\) is a localization of \(\mathcal{O}_v\), its maximal ideal \(\mathcal{M}_{v_{\Lambda}}\) is contained in \(\mathcal{M}_v\), so Henselianity follows from condition 2 of the claim.

To see that \((k_{v_{\Lambda}}, v_{\Delta})\) is Henselian: We again use condition 2 of the claim. Let \(f = 1 + T + P_2 T^2 + \dots + P_n T^n \in \mathcal{O}_{v_{\Delta}}\) where \(P_2, \dots, P_n\) are from \(\mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}\).

Lift the coefficients \(P_2, \dots, P_n\) to \(Q_2, \dots, Q_n \in \mathcal{O}_v\). Since each \(Q_i\) is in \(\mathcal{M}_v\), then since \((K,v)\) is Henselian, \(1 + T + Q_2 T^2 + \dots + Q_n T^n\) has a root \(b \in \mathcal{O}_v\), and then \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(b)\) is a zero for \(f\), fulfilling condition 2 of the claim.

Conversely, suppose that both \((K, v_{\Lambda})\) and \((k_{v_{\Lambda}}, v_{\Delta})\) are Henselian.

Let \(f \in \mathcal{O}_v[T]\) and \(a \in \mathcal{O}_v\) satisfy \(\operatorname{res}_v(f(a)) = 0\) and \(\operatorname{res}_v(f’(a)) \neq 0\). Applying \(\sigma\), we conclude \((\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(f) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}})(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}) = 0\) (resp. \((\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(f)’ + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}})(a) \neq 0\)).

By (k\(_{\text{v}_{\Lambda}}\), v\(_{\Delta}\))-Henselianity, obtain \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(b) \in \mathcal{O}_{v_{\Delta}}\) (so \(b \in \mathcal{O}_v\)) such that \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(f(b)) = 0\) and \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(f’(b)) \neq 0\), with \(\operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(b) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}} = \operatorname{res}_{v_{\Lambda}}(a) + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Delta}}\).

Passing through \(\sigma\) again, conclude that \(a + \mathcal{M}_v = b + \mathcal{M}_v\), so \(v(a - b) > 0\).

Now, apply (K, v\(_{\Lambda}\))-Henselianity to \(f\) and \(b\) to obtain \(c \in \mathcal{O}_{v_{\Lambda}}\) such that \(f( c ) = 0\) and \(c + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Lambda}} = b + \mathcal{M}_{v_{\Lambda}}\).

Since \(v_{\Lambda}(b - c) > 0\), \(v(b - c) > 0\). This implies \(c \in \mathcal{O}_v\).

It now remains to show that \(\operatorname{res}_v(a) = \operatorname{res}_v( c )\). Since \(v(b - c) > 0\) and \(v(b - a) > 0\), then \(v(b - c - (b - a)) = v(a - c) \geq \min(v(b - c), v(b - a)) > 0\).

Personal Heater [a Kyle Spencer imagine]

Request: Helloo, if you can, can you do a Kyle imagine where it’s Autumn and cold inside the Coven, and he cuddles the reader and stuff to try to warm them up? REALLY FLUFFY No pressure if you can’t, but thanks anyway!

a/n: this is too cute damn it


The mansion is freezing. Halfway through the night, the heating decided to shut down, which means that the whole coven is frozen. Especially you. You despise the cold. 

Shivering in the blanket wrapped around your shoulders, you shuffle down the hall. Need another blanket. A door creaks open above you, causing you to turn your head. Kyle pokes his hands out of the ceiling, peeking over the edge. “H-hey! C-can you get me a b-bl…blain…” He furrows his eyebrows in concentration. Some words are still difficult for him to say.

“A blanket? Sure.” You nod, chuckling as you go to the small closet. The curved silver handle is cool against your palm. It swings open easily; but the white shelves are empty. Pouting, you shut the closet, wobbling to the attic stairs. “Kyle!” Nothing. 

Frowning, you secure the mint green blanket around you before you climb up the yellowish wood ladder. You push yourself up into his room, standing up straight.  A giggle comes from your lips when you see him. “ I- was c-cold…” He stutters, bowing his head.

In front of you, the former frat boy sits on his bed, wearing layers and layers of shirts and sweaters. He frowns while you cackle, coming closer to him. “Can I borrow a few of your sweaters? There’s no more blankets…” You sigh; teeth chattering. This is by far the cutest thing he has done. 

Not even a minute later and his Kappa Lambda Gamma fraternity navy blue sweater is in your hands. The soft material makes you feel warm when you slip it on. Without asking, slowly you climb into his bed next to him. “T-this is a ni-ce payment…” He smirks, wrapping his puffy arms around your body, yanking you closer to him. 

The faint smell of axe invades your senses as you curl up next to him. “You know for a guy who was dead, you’re really warm…” You hum. When your nose presses to his neck, he tenses. “I’m sorry!” You whisper, pulling away. Kyle is a quiet guy; very sensitive. 

A huff leaves his pink lips. “No! I-I…liked it. I-it’s nice. I’m n-not used it, t-that’s all.” Kyle quivers, holding you tighter. No words escape your mouth. “An-d it’s ma-king me warmer.” He sniffles, grinning at your heavy eyelids. “Y-ou can s-sleep on me; it’s ok-ay.” He reassures, stroking your hair. You’re very pretty; he can’t help but stare. 

Humming, you let your eyes fall closed. “Thanks Kyle.” You mumble, nuzzling into his chest. 

“No p-problem.” He mutters, kissing your head and rubbing his thumb up and down your arm. Not having heat isn’t too bad, he supposes.

Kappa Phi Gamma for #ReclaimTheBindi! 

Kappa Phi Gamma Sorority, Inc. is the first South Asian Sorority in North America. The sisterhood instills the pride of culture, womanhood, and self. Although Kappa Phi Gamma was founded as a South Asian sorority, she has expanded the warmth of her Sisterhood to any and all motivated young women, willing to make a difference. Sisters of different backgrounds learn about the importance of South Asian culture and work together as one on promoting cultural awareness on their campus and in their community. 

We would like to commend reclaimthebindi for initiating this movement to allow females of similar backgrounds to share their stories and to empower young South Asian women worldwide. Culture is not a costume and appropriation is not equal to appreciation.

Welcome to TU || Closed

The frat house was buzzing with life, & Kyle grinned from atop the stairs. His well worn Kappa polo was exchanged for a long sleeve navy henley & his favorite varsity jacket, a half empty beer can in one hand. He leaned over the banister, eyeing the milling guests. A game of beer pong was heating up in the corner, he heard excitable voices placing bets on winner & Kyle could already see himself having to pull the twitchy looking stoner & the pumped of lacrosse Captain apart at some point tonight. He snickered to himself. There was a pair of girls making out on the couch who weren’t far away from sneaking off to another room (he couldn’t blame ‘em - not with the apparently already drunk little group of frat boys near them, leering & cheering.) He rolled brown eyes.

Kyle shifted himself from the banister. & began to ascend from his little perch & into the party den. As soon as his foot hit the second step the heavy intro of a classic rock song started up, a deep voice wailing about the house of the rising sun. & Kyle grinned, glancing knowingly towards the stacked speakers where one of his frat brothers, Brennan, raised a plastic cup in salute. Brennan had insisted Kyle listened to weak shit & needed some more real rock.

He took the stairs two steps a go & on his way he was greeting almost everyone. Past the foyer, in the spacious but packed common room, he spotted her. Avery. He honestly didn’t think she’d show & his smile brightened at this pleasant surprise. He started towards her direction & he was beat to it by his burly redhead friend - Archie. It looked as though Archie had been waiting to catch the new student & Kyle figured he wasn’t going to be the only one interested.

A minute later, Kyle sidled up to Archie & handed him his now empty can. “Go get your bro another, Archie!” Kyle grinned, ruffling short red strands. Archie spared Avery a glance that Kyle didn’t really notice – he was smiling now at the girl.

“Didn’t think you’d show.” He admitted, after Archie gave his shoulder a chummy bump & went to refresh their drinks. “Welcome to Kappa Lambda Gamma House..The blond said, sweeping a hand over the room full of noisy revelers. “Tulane’s finest.” He chuckled. “Having fun?”
