|| INTRODUCTION || The layout of a large school campus decorated with skulls and other gothic architecture is showcased as an unidentified voice speaks: "Shinigami Buki Shokunin Senmon Gakkō... or in simple terms: 'Shibusen'. Though regarded as a powerful organization, its more well-known purpose is as a school, where young hopefuls who have been gifted with the power of transforming in the Death Weapons may come to learn how to control their powers and partner with Meisters, those who can utilize their weapon forms." The voice is slowly revealed to belong to a young boy with black and white-striped hair, wearing a black cloak and standing directly in the center of the main entrance of the school facing the arduous stone staircase in front. "Most students attend simply for the chance to better themselves through their knowledge of Meister and Weapon capabilities, but others are assigned specifically as combatants who protect the world from the dangers of Madness by collecting the souls of evil beings. There was also a policy where Death Weapons could transform themselves into a special blade called a "Death Scythe" if the Weapon and Meister pair could collect 99 souls and the soul of a witch, but due to recent events, this has been abolished. I would go into further detail, but it is quite a long story really..." "Uh, Kid, could you hurry this up, this is getting kinda boring," said a young woman standing a few steps from the boy's right. "Yeah, nobody wants to sit through this stuff, they just wanna get to the action!" said another young woman standing a few steps from the boy's left. "Liz, Patty, I've already told you, this information has to be present so that nobody gets confused..." Kid said, at first speaking firmly but then growing noticeably irritated. "And anyways, why is that you two are off position again? This speech can't be right unless you stand at least 3 inches at both of my sides!" "Alright, alright, yeesh!" Said the woman on the right, moving into position. "Whoopsie! Sorry Kid!" Said the woman ont he left, doing the same. After dusting off his coat, Kid began speaking once more: "Now then: the world as we know may be living in a period of peace ever since the defeat of the Kishin and the truce made between Shibusen and the Witch Order, but there will always be new challenges that arise for the world, and the existence of Madness is eternal in the hearts of even the purest person." Kid raised his arms up as the two girls transformed into a pair of guns and fell into his hands. "However, the biggest question is: are you ready to undertake such a challenge? If the answer is yes..." Kid spun the the two guns in his hands and pointed them both towards his front. "Then let's get busy," he finished, grinning. - - - - - || "SPARTOI INITIATION" Arc -- START || A typical, brisk afternoon of training, learning and fighting arose for the students of Shibusen's EAT Class, and all seemed to be going exactly as they always did as the students settled down for the next class with their usual teacher Marie Mjölnir. However, after settling into their seats, they noticed that their teacher Marie was running late. Before many could ponder the reasoning for this, they were interrupted by the sound of what seemed like the screeching of wheels on a wood surface, and through the door came the source: a gray, heavily stitched man with a giant screw in his head riding an rolling chair backwards only to promptly hit his wheels on the edge of the front door and fall directly onto his butt. The man said nothing, proceeded to enter the door in the same fashion once more. Though the students were familiar with the man in question, as well as his chair antics, most of them could not help but blankly stare at the man in both unimpressed confusion. He, of course, was Frank N. Stein, one of the best Meisters to ever graduate from Shibusen and a semi-active teacher and direct affiliate to the headmaster Lord Death, while also being regarded as an overall oddball for his eccentric and downright horrifying obsession for experimentation. After repeating his folly, Stein quickly got back on the chair and rolled down towards the teacher's desk, adjusting the glare of his glasses while also cranking the screw lodged into his cranium. "Good afternoon class. For today's lesson, I will be stepping in as your instructor in place of Miss Mjölnir." Various mutters from the desks emerged, some merely surprised by Stein's appearance and others now frightened at the possibility of Stein making them dissect another endangered animal as he regularly did for his impromptu lessons. "I'm sure you're all wondering why, so I'll let you know right away: this lesson isn't going to be part of your regular curriculum. Instead, it is going to be centered around a very important aspect of Shibusen's structure, something we like to call... 'Spartoi'." Even more murmurs arose, but none of them were laced with fear, and instead all were composed of pure wonder and excitement. One such student, bearing a head of white-hair and a scar across his right eye, grinned feverishly at the words of his teacher. Spartoi, huh? This is perfect. Looks like all my years in the Academy are gonna pay off in the biggest way possible... he thought. "Spartoi? I don't think I've heard about that," said a girl sitting right next to the white haired boy, who chuckled at her response. "Doesn't surprise me. You were probably too busy practicing some silly ball-lut act," he said. "It is called ballet, Shiyu, and it's an important aspect of my choreography," the girl huffed. "So what is Spartoi anyway?" "Only one of Lord Death's biggest faction of Meisters and Death Weapons from the EAT class, assembled directly for the purpose of taking on high-risk missions of utmost importance for the entire world. That same group had Lord Death himself at the helm, as well as his partner Mr. Evans and the rest of their classmates, including the Thompson Twins, Tsubaki Natsukasa, Maka Albarn, and my personal favorite, Black☆Star, the Warrior God." "Wait, really? Wow, that is impressive. Ah, to imagine Lord Death in his prime, fighting alongside such other accomplished people. It must have been absolutely dazzling," the girl said, posturing herself as if she was going to break into song.
= Synopsis = The Kishin Ashura has finally fallen. The world is at peace. The son of Lord Death, Death The Kid, has taken over his father’s mantle as the leader of Death City and the headmaster of Shibusen. Alongside Maba, Queen of the Witch Order, Kid is currently lobbying to pass a new law, the "Witches Equality Act", which will ensure that witches all around the world are allowed to live comfortably in the realm of humans without fear of discrimination. However, there are hints of conflict on the horizon, as the path to peace will not be an easy one. Many challenges may arise between humans and witches alike. Also, rumors are floating around that Demon Tool Gopher has resurfaced, and is planning something with the Noah Icons he received on the moon… To combat this, the new Lord Death has decided to assimilate his own faction of “Eight Guardians” to personally assist him, consisting of former members of Spartoi: the Thompson sisters, Black☆Star, Tsubaki Natkatsunasa, Maka Albarn, and his new Death Scythe, Soul “Eater Evans”. With Spartoi’s units now lessened, he has proposed that a new crop of EAT students be elected to join the ranks so that they can provide assistance as well. What new challenges lay on the horizon? Is the world truly heading towards a new tomorrow, or is the threat of Madness intending to consume the world once again? = Rules = General Rules: * Posts are allowed up to a TV-14 rating, including swearing, blood, violence, nudity, etc. Just don’t go overboard, this isn’t a snuff film. * No God-Modding.
