What you think about this place so far?"
    "Well, most of the people seem nice, and the view here is breathtaking," Vi said, waving an arm at the environment around them. "Even if it is, well, booby trapped." A slight pause. "It's nice to meet you Iriesia."

    "I agree with that. Responsibility is quite important, isn't it? Anyway, what can you do? Cause earthquakes? Throw cars? Fight forever without sleeping?"

    "No, I'm just fast and can make fire," Vi said. "You?"

    "That's quite sweet of you." Samantha doesn't sound as sarcastic as she had tried to be.

    "I don't mind," Vi said happily. "So, where are you from?"

    As Iriesia took the time to look around, she had to admit to herself that the school's environs were impressive. The better to keep others from noticing that they were effectively held by the whims of those who may not have their wellbeing at heart.

    OOC: These are thoughts. Should I find another way of writing thoughts. Like this, perhaps? Or like this? Perhaps even like this? What about smaller print? Or a font change? Or something else entirely?

    "So, what do you hope to do here?" Vi asked, trying to spark up a conversation.

    OT: Italics are fine.

    "Not sure, never could keep the sectors straight," Vi said. "I live in a mansion, and I know the street address, but that's about it. My folks run Baad Industries," she answered.

    "Yes, it really is." Sloane shot back, sounding quite sarcastic in contrast.

    Sloane shook his head.

    "That's cool I guess," Vi said. "I mostly just stayed indoors though. Tell me, you know anything about swords?" she asked.

    "More than you could believe." Samantha smiles. "What do you have in mind? Sword fighting, sword making, or sword history?"

    "I really only know about sword fighting, and how my own sword was made," she answered.
