RFA High School HCs Favorite Classes

The 3rd installment in the series is here! (1st, 2nd 4th 4th(cont) 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th ) Feel free to request high school scenarios if you enjoy these. You guys are probably better brainstormers than I am. XD 


  • For some reason REALLY loves his home ec class.
  • Cooking, sewing, cleaning… he finds it so fascinating.
  • He especially loves making pancakes (Jumin’s route, am I right?)
  • The first time he… uh… used baking soda instead of baking powder…
  • And anyone with basic cooking knowledge knows how that turned out
  • When his food turns out bad he looks absolutely devastated.
  • The teacher meets his dead eyes and just flips.
  • “Jumin, Jumin! Don’t worry, I’ll let you try again. You can redo it! You can redo it! Just… Just don’t-”
  • And that’s how Jumin learned to make pancakes and nothing else
  • But, omg, he loves taking care of the robot baby the most. 
  • I mean, he just secretly switches it out with Elizabeth the 3rd and then…
  • “I can see her all day. … … THIS IS THE BEST.”
  • The thing is, the robot baby has stuff programmed into it that calculate your grade based off of how well you did
  • And since Jumin didn’t do anything
  • He completely fails his home ec class. Poor Juju


  • This poor baby doesn’t do well at any of his core classes… 
  • Even in animal science, all he does is coo over all the animals
  • That makes the teacher very mad because he specifically said not to touch
  • Yoosung would be best at pottery.
  • At first all his cups would turn out lopsided
  • but over time he got so pro at it
  • Now he can beat the teacher.
  • And, you know it, they have competitions every day
  • Maybe Seven would be in class with him narrating the whole process
  • “And there he goes! What material is he choosing today… The great pottery master YOOSUNG! Boom boom, shaaaaaaaa”
  • And Yoosung wins every frickin time probably because his classmates don’t want to see him cry
  • The teacher is really salty but still gives him a passing grade
  • Yoosung is ecstatic because this is the first time he’s actually had fun passing a class if only he was this good at math or English


  • Jaehee’s the best at Chemistry.
  • She loves learning the details of things.
  • She doesn’t have as good a memory as Seven, but it’s pretty good regardless.
  • so she knows all the elements by the first week, plus their oxidation numbers, plus their most common compounds, plus… you get the point?
  • To her, chemistry is the only place where she can truly let go
  • so, in the labs, she’s the one with her hair frazzled and face blackened due to some “experiment” she was performing after completing the assigned work
  • Chem labs are supposed to have eye-washers, and she’s used it more than once 
  • Jae-chan your eyes are already bad (not really, her glasses are fake)
  • Her fav class lab is the one where you dip cotton balls into different liquids and light them on fire.
  • All the different colors are just so pretty
  • Her classmates are all happy that she’s showing some positive emotions for once
  • until she starts chasing them with flaming cotton balls


  • Everyone knows his favorite class is theater, but for sake of making it interesting, let’s say it wasn’t.
  • Zen loves English.
  • Due to him reading so many scripts, his vocabulary is huge
  • Because of it, his essays are so fabulous
  • His teacher love it and thus strokes Zen’s ego a hella ton more than he should
  • “Your diction is spectacular, Zen! Absolutely sensational!”
  • “I have to say, I am a sensation.”
  • Despite this, Zen fails all his vocab quizzes because he only knows adjectives
  • “What the hell is ‘largess…?’ ” *sighs*
  • Nobody likes it when students do live performances for projects because it’s just awkward
  • But when Zen performs…
  • “Mic check… one, two…”
  • Everyone is just speechless.
  • He captivates. And just like that: “Ah, I get it now.”
  • The meaning behind the passage that the teacher spent two full days trying to show was revealed instantly by Zen’s performance.


  • Physics. The genius is a genius.
  • It’s all math-based, so Seven knows everything from day 1.
  • He probably taught himself calculus in elementary school the smarty-pants
  • His favorite topic is projectiles. 
  • Why? Projectile labs, of course.
  • He knows exactly where everything is going to land
  • And eventually the teacher finds out, though it takes them a while.
  • “Oops, why did the egg hit your face? I was aiming for the target…”
  • “Luciel…” 
  • He is therefore banned from all projectile labs restraining order requested
  • Do not ask him for Physics homework help because he assumes everything
  • “Hey, Luciel, can you help me with this?”
  • “Okay, so you solve for time using y-velocity and use that to find your x-displacement.”
  • “Wait… where did you get that value for ‘a’?”
  • “Are you an idiot? That’s acceleration due to gravity. -9.8m/s.”
  • Yeah. He’s a terrible teacher. unlike fabulous Zen
  • What he is good at, however, is double checking answers. He’ll tell you straight out whether you’ve got the right answer or not.
  • “Hey, Luciel, is this right?”
  • “How the hell did you get that?”
  • Go easy on me God Seven ;;


  • This fuzzball loves animal science.
  • I’m sure you’re already imagining it
  • Allllllllll the smol cute photos
  • Fluffy chicks and ducks, kittens, puppies
  • Saeran holds them in his smol hands right next to his face and everything around him just brightens
  • He’s not wearing black anymore, it’s shining midnight blue
  • His black hair highlights aren’t creepy anymore, they’re shadows that add depth to this beautiful moment
  • Other classmates try to find ways to take photos with him and the animals
  • He’s so good at handling them that the teacher puts him in charge of them
  • He takes it so seriously
  • He’s there every day after school
  • He’ll often find himself with company as people want to see him with the animals
  • Feeding them… brushing them… cuddling…. *fangirl squeals*
  • doesn’t know how to act around so many people???
  • If there are too many visitors, though, he’ll chase them out with his death glare
  • If you come any closer I’ll… I’ll accept anything from you my smol emo child>~

Random headcanon: a child of Hephaestus who isn't that great with machines, but then learns they're great with anything fabric. Like, if someone needs a dress, they can just look and make the exact pattern needed without having to measure anything. Or, if one of their younger siblings is upset, they can make a stuffed animal in less than 10 minutes. Just, they're so good with fabric and sewing machines and patterns... (I thought it would be cool. :D)

That’s awesome!! Someone sent me a headcanon about a hold of Hephaestus who is great at pottery, so it’s along those lines. And maybe their siblings make them a tip of the line sewing machine for their birthday and it has all kinds of awesome features like a snack dispenser and iPod dock! Very very cool! Thanks for sharing! xxx
