- “This one guy in New Haven, right? City’s burning. People are dying left and right, yada yada yada. This jackhole rushes me with a spoon. A freaking SPOON! And I’m dying laughing, right? So I scoop out his stupid little eyeballs with it, and his kids are all ‘WAAAAA’ and he can’t see where he’s going, he’s bumping into stuff and I - anyway, I don’t know, maybe you had to be there. The moral is: you’re a total bitch.”

            『 With a smug smile plastered across his face, Joshua tapped the edge of his phone to his bottom lip. Hope Peak Academy’s grand entrance sure was quite enthralling with its high-arched hallways and lush tiling enthralling; he’d give them that. Though as the students weaved around him as he stood dead center in the middle of a hallway, the Composer knew that something here was missing here. –Or maybe it was just this nagging sense of jealousy that made him feel something was awry. His Game was far more superior and better-suited for highly Imaginative people – the same Imaginative people that this Academy was stealing from him. And, as the good Composer he was, he decided he might as well invade the school’s premises and figure out its inner secrets. Not like there was anything wrong with that. 

            『 Most students didn’t pay him any mind, either. Just from the few seconds he’d been there, Joshua could tell that this school was an utter mockery when it came to security. It was laughably easy to break in – though the figure standing just inches outside of Joshua’s vision thought otherwise. The boy swiveled to see one of the Academy’s students standing silently to the side of the hall, alone. “No need to give such an intense look,” Joshua said, holding up a hand as if to make peace. “If that’s how you greet a fellow student, you won’t be making friends anytime soon.” Though the more he looked at him, Joshua couldn’t see anything particularly brilliant about the boy before him. Perhaps they were both intruders? “I’m a student here – just take my word for it. As for my title, well…” Clearly he was fibbing – and with very good reason. 

            『 “…suppose you could call me a Super High School Level…–” And pause for effect… “–Composer.” Yes, that would do. It did fit rather nicely – if not ironically. 』
