Final exams?   Now?  

It's not even May!  What sort of terrible curriculum is this?  Summer vacation for a whole three months -- Preposterous!  How am I supposed to make anything without any students?!  In my day, we got a single day off to celebrate the creation of the world.  Maybe a holiday on the side for the founding of your city if you were lucky.  Heck, this hardly even counts as summer; the temperature barely goes above 75 every now and then.  Real summer comes around when it gets so hot that a minute out in the sun will knock you out and send you straight to the healers.  Then maybe we move classes under the shade of a tree.

What?  Stop complaining?  Why should I?  Do I still get paid over the summer? . . . . . . . . . . . ...........

Ehh.  Students, though you may have learned almost as much as this class as you did in gym, your final exam will not be waived.  In the spirit of home economics, it will be a hands-on project.  As for the specifics . . . Surprise me.  Bake me cookies.  Paint my room a different color.  Make me a uniform made of blue and red. 

You have two weeks.

Bonus points if you somehow manage to include some of our discussion upon magic theory into the project.

Hmm, what if we paint our own apartment?

You'll have to show it to me. And it'll have to match your furniture. And your carpeting. And your clothing.

Because blue and red match.

Riight. Maybe I'll just try the cookies.

That will do fine, too. I expect several dozen cookie packages within the next few weeks. Some of them won't be burned, I hope.

Since you're my favorite student and all, here's a hint: I'm rather fond of chocolate.

Several dozen is an awful lot of cookies... wait, I'm your favourite student? Are you sure you're not confusing me with one of the other kids?

Date: 2009-04-30 03:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, no, I simply meant from you and various other students. One dozen will be enough per student. And be reasonable, Tsuna. You'll all be my favorite students if you bake me cookies.

Ah. That makes more sense. It's more of a bribe, then.

I never thought home and careers could be so rewarding.

Rena just arrived! I haven't learned anything about magic.

Hmm . . . How about this? I'll give you bonus points if you don't kidnap anyone before the school year ends.

Rena will have to think about it.

Let me know when you make up your mind.

Hey! I taught my students a lot in my class!

Gym exams are a vital part of maintaining proper fitness. For instance, jump roping. 200 in a row.

Two hundred?! Man, and Gaignun thinks I'm a slave driver!

You ought to have seen the push-up tests. It was a wonder I passed.

. . . Actually, I probably didn't.

Gym class, of course.

I've never seen you in my class.

((I thought as much. XD))

. . .

Back when I was going to school, young whippersnapper.

From: [identity profile]
Uh-huh. So you remembered being in school, then?

Date: 2009-05-01 02:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yes. No.

Don't question your elders, sonny boy.

You know I'm a teacher too, don't you?

You're barely older than some of the students. How did they even let you teach?

Date: 2009-05-01 08:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
They couldn't have known that before they hired you.

Unless you made them do a hundred sit-ups or something.

Obviously my enthusiasm and winning personality was all the proof they needed.

Jeez, what kinds of standards do you set for your class?

Date: 2009-05-02 12:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
. . . Probably lower than yours.

Date: 2009-05-02 12:33 am (UTC)

Only the highest standards of teaching for the little tykes. They deserve the best.

Hey. I admitted from the start -- I'm not the most qualified person in the world for this class. I won't deny it. I'm still not convinced that some of this material is even worth teaching at all. But heck, I try pretty damn hard for their sakes. I'm not joking. These kids deserve the best. And if I can't give it, I'm just going to have to learn along with them until I can.

Heh. I see.

Guess I misjudged you. You're a pretty good guy after all.

You'll be charged with teaching summer school.

Enjoy it.

What is summer school and why does it get its own name? Am I teaching spring school right now?

Think of it as remedial classes.

Date: 2009-04-30 09:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
. . . Who's required to attend? The kids who burn my cookies?

Date: 2009-04-30 10:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
... As with normal classes, no one is required to attend.

Date: 2009-05-01 12:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
. . . Right. It's still a wonder that anyone shows up at all. But who's going to volunteer to go to 'remedial' school?

Date: 2009-05-01 01:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Mostly those coerced into it.

I believe that would make . . . Tsuna, Tsuna, and . . . Tsuna.

I'll do my best, Professor! Are there any more specific guidelines than what you said?

Date: 2009-05-01 08:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
. . . Yes. Cookies with nuts in them are strongly discouraged.
