Vermillion Revenant. Virgo Knowledge, stats: 9/4/4/4/4; LTW: Become a Criminal Mastermind.
Vermillion chose Scholomance as her college for one reason and one reason only. They have a Necromancy department.
In addition to wanting to become a crime boss she wants to 'live' forever as an undead. Becasue she's cool like that.
Tiffany Zarubin, from the Gardening Club, is one of the Professors in the Necromancy Department.
And Gypsy Lew is the other.
Vermillion is eager to begin her studies.
She's not alone. Naenae here is also studying Necromancy.
So the girls have a lot to talk about.
And develop the skills they'll need together.
Gypsy Lew calls up with a task for her new student.
Vermillion is sent to Cafe de Muerto. Gypsy Lew instructed her to wait for another instructor.
Could this be her? A member of the secret society?
Vermillion takes no chances and makes Solviegs acquaintence.
But the young lady soon left the Cafe, leaving Vermillion to chat up soem cute boys.
Gypsy Lew couldn't possibly have meant for Vermillion to meet the Charlatan? True he's a criminal, but he's small time compared to Vermillions ambitions.
But then the Instructor arrives. It's a witch of the dark arts.
Her name is Jayapalan the Odious. She and Vermillion spend hours discussing Vermillions curriculum.
But soon she must return to her Palace of Darkness.
And Vermillion has new skills to acquire. She doesn't know what yoga has to do with Necromancy, but she'll do what it takes.
In her Sophomore year, Vermillion meets this tattooed young man. Is he a colleague or does he have something to teach Vermillion as well?
Professor Zarubin has given Vermillion the assignment of growing a tomato plant. Like yoga, Vermillion isn't sure what this has to do with Necromancy. But again, she'll do what it takes.
And so, Vermillion takes up gardening.
Soon she has a little tomato sapling to call her very own.
Vermillion doesn't only correspond with witches and gardeners and gypsies. She studies the history and lore of her chosen field.
She's encouraged to find that her gardening skills are improving.
And just when Vermillion starts feeling her studies are routine she gets another call from Gyspy Lew.
But Gypsy Lew doesn't have a new assignment for Vermillion. She's called to berate her for poor preformance.
Vermillions tomato plant is in dire straits.
Vermillions embarrassed that she let the tomato plant get so bad. She also wonders how Gypsy Lew knew about the condition of the tomato plant.
At the end of the semester, Vermillion brings her tomatoes in to Professor Zarubin. Vermillion was confused. Professor Zarubin didn't know the tomatoes were in bad shape. Vermilion received a passing grade for her wonderful produce.
Vermillion and Naenae are halfway through their studies! They're very excited.
Vermillion meets the Tattooed Boy again and learns that he goes by Taylor Riley.
She learns he's a student here at Scholomance, but they don't share the same major. But they do overlap. Taylor is studying the Occult. He too has Jayapalan the Odious as an instructor.
Speaking of Jayapalan the Odious, she has a brother. He goes by Chef Jayapalan and he just burned breakfast.
Vermillion has been a little slack in her yoga regimen. Fearing another call from Gypsy Lew, she starts shortly after Mr. Riley leaves.
Her junior year Vermillion is given the assignment to grow cucumbers. So she gets cracken.
But just until a limousine appears on the driveway.
Vermillion is arrested!
She's wondering is she needs to call her lawyer. Or she could call her Lewyer! Get it?! Gypsy Lew? Lewyer?! Ahh it's good to make puns again.
Anyways, Vermillion is a little surprised to discover that she's been accepted into Scholomances Secret Society, Deathknell. But she's flattered all the same.
Their estate is very grand.
And Vermillion won't forget anytime soon the sound of their fantastic baby grand.
Deathknells denizens seemed friendly enough.
Plus they had a beautiful bartender that I- I mean Vermillion, couldn't resist.
Deathknell has a hefty sum of Career Rewards. The Workaholics challenge doesn't specify how one could achieve the career rewards.
Buuuut I won't be cheatsy and steal them. We'll do this the honest way. Also Vermillion graduates her junior year and doesn't know what to make of her Senior Assignment.
She heads back to the Tirisfal Boarding House to tend to her cucumbers.
And in her spare time she paints herself a portrait... of herself. :B
She also begins to write down her experiences as a student of Necromancy.
While cows watch.
And start fights.
Vermillion berates both the cow and llama for fighting. Dont they know she's trying to write a novel here?
Vermillion is visited in the night by a beautiful woman. Vermillion isn't sure what her intent is yet. She seems to be the interest of a lot of people in this strange school.
Vermillion has finished her accounts in the field of Necromancy. Her papers are published and well recieved by the academic community. She rakes in $2,359 in royalties.
She doesn't understand. All she's done is plant tomatoes and preform yoga.
But she thanks the deliver girl all the same with a hefty tip.
Her senior year is coming to a close. Vermillion harvests her cucumbers for Professor Zarubin's assessment.
She's ve proud of her gardening skills. Professor Zarubin gives her a gold badge in Gardening.
Vermillion races to her final exams.
And finally graduates from college!
She has a couple days to enjoy before she's shipped off campus. The Tirisfal Boarding House just got a new pool table.
So in her spare time Vermillion preforms the xylophone trick sot.
The boarding house seems unusually infested with cows lately.
So it's time to start the party season off with a graduation shindig!
Oh, boohoo, the big-nosed red-headed mohawk guy has bad chemistry with Vermillion. o3o
Anyways, Vermillion dons the graduate robes and heads out to the party area.
Which is just outside. Having just recieved a diploma in Necromancy she's hopign maybe someone will catch fire and she'll have a specimen to fiddle around with.
She's invited her friend Solvieg to the graduation party.
And Jayapalan the Odious! Let's hope they don't catch on fire.
Vermillions fellow tenants are unsure how to feel about a bonfire on their front lawn.
But they warm up when the champagne starts flowing.
Perhaps they'll get blotto enough to walk into the bonfire. >_>
With the heat of the bonfire at her back and the excitement of just having graduated college, Vermillion is feeling celebratory. The champagne and 'fruit punch' certainly amplify the feeling.
Subsequently she makes out with Taylor Riley.
Then the fire goes out. Vermillion feels a little awkward.
She starts payign attention to Solvieg again.
And dance in the rain.
Then dance together in the rain.
Vermillion's first party is a great success. Her guests had a great time and she grows up. I didn't know that happened at the end of graduation parties. :D
Alright folks, stay tuned for the next chapter of Revenant!
