*The Losers in December*

Richie: What the-

Mike: Fa la la la la, la la la la! Merry Christmas everyone!

My Hailey’s comet,
my blue moon love.
Boy like an olive branch;
soul like a desert spring.
Vision in the wild brush,
embracing every rainstorm
with warm, wide arms.
Galaxy man,
raised by the trees,
plants himself in another stretch of time,
must be,
you know you’ve seen that face before.
600 year old star,
smile lines and bare chest.
You will always be left begging him
to come closer,
and he will always be
just out of reach.
—  Schuyler Peck, Love Song From the Wild West

George quickly gets injured and leaves this season's cast, but Bess fills in. It's up to you as Nancy Drew to figure out who hurt George, as well as figure out what is up with Jin and Sonny!
  • So, I made this because I remembered Deirdre telling Nancy that she has been giving her number out for awhile, so I think the cases that were started due to Deirdre giving out Nancy's number are Warnings at Waverly Academy, The Captive Curse, The Deadly Device, and possibly the Silent Spy (because in the trailer with the mysterious phone call.)

Basilton Grimm-Pitch liked things clean. He kept his room tidy, he organized his locker, and he had pristine, font-like handwriting. He got good grades, he didn’t talk in class, and he kept his head down. Every move he made was calculated, every word had a purpose and every emotion expressed served a goal. His words were his walls and his cannons, his offense and his defense.

As Baz walked into his 6th period chemistry class, he chose the table in the middle right, which seemed unassuming and comfortable. He strode over to it and placed his book bag under his seat, making sure that the strap wouldn’t trip anyone. He adopted an expression of cool apathy and looked at the board. No one would notice him, and if they did, they would learn nothing important about him.

The rest of the class filed in, sitting with their friends and whispering loudly. No one sat by Baz, but he didn’t mind. He was here to learn.

The teacher cleared her throat, and the class quieted a bit, just enough to make out what she was saying. She sighed. Silence was a myth at this school.

“Okay class, the first order of business today is assigning lab partners.”
