atreideslioness: (No man's spoil of war)
Ghanima had been....delayed in reaching the radio station last night, but it sounded like Mr. Starsmore and his friends had been more than capable of handling themselves. In truth, she had been delaying, spending most of the weekend by her self down at the beach, slightly sad that Leto had not come to visit her and Irulan.

But she had a responsibility to her students, and so Ghanima was here today, the heady scent of coffee and cinnamon filling her office as she made arrangements for next week's class.

atreideslioness: (Litany Against Fear)
Too often, students become wrapped up in the strange culture of Fandom Island, never looking past its boarders to see the wider world. This class is an opportunity to explore the mainland on a regular basis, and take in some of the wonders that this planet has to offer. Students will travel by portal to various points of interest all over the United States, spending two hours at each stop to learn about the culture of the time and place they are living in.

THIS IS A FIELD TRIP CLASS. Instead of isolating students by using the Danger Shop to simulate non-Fandom environments, Ghanima is going to take the students off-island to three museums, three plays, three national parks, and three formal restaurants. This gives us twelve classes, which gives me room to adjust in case of BDE/Trauma/RL. Because, ngl, this is Fandom, and there will be trauma at some point. That's just how it works. Ghanima will be wearing sunglasses or special contacts to disguise her eyes when off-island, and suggests that any clearly non-human students consider making similar adjustments. Causing riots is not nearly as fun as it sounds.

She is also in the market for a TA. Comments are screened, questions will be unscreened, and the RNG will dictate the TA on Monday.

From cityscapes to icebergs, each week we will look at a different type of terrain, and one thing you can do to make your life easier. Please be aware that there is no syllabus to this class, because Ghanima is a cruel woman and does not want you to have time to prepare for each scenario.

Students may end up covering a few of the same types of terrain, but with different activities from last time. You can see previous classes here, and I'm happy to take suggestions on what ya'll would like to do this time around.

TA: TBD. Ghanima needs one, are you interested? Comments are screened, preferences is given to grads needing a reason to stay on campus, and the RNG Gods will decide your fate.

atreideslioness: (OOC the 2nd!)
So as we mentioned here, this Sunday's Fight Club will be tag-team fights! We're asking people to sign-up with a partner, and then we'll RNG pairs together. Sign-ups close Friday at noon, and yes, this is open to alumni too, if you know you're going to be on the island.

We're hoping to RNG stuff Friday afternoon, so that we can notify people of their matches, so things can get planned out or preplayed, in case of timezone insanity.

And, as always, we're looking to do more themed weeks with Fight Club -- if you have an idea, please suggest it!

This time, when it hit, Ghanima had been in the middle of a midnight run along the beach, well after radio had aired and most sensible people were asleep. It wasn't like her runs across the dunes at home, not even remotely close, but it would never due to slack her training out of some sense of nostalgia.

Only one moment she was running along, long legs hitting the sand in even strides, and the next it was four legs skittering over the beach.

Four. With paws.

The little lion cub pulled up short in surprise, looking down at her own feet before heaving a great sigh and trotting off to go find her stepmother, or perhaps do some hunting and drop dead-things in someone's bed; maybe Biff or Max would appreciate it. Or better yet, maybe weasel her way into the dorms to go jump on Leto's bed. If she was going to be trapped like this, again, Ghanima wanted to make other people suffer too.

[OOC: Second verse, same as the first. May be without 'nets until Sunday at midnight, or may cling to the computer to save my sanity. Modding rights to [livejournal.com profile] irulan_atreides and [livejournal.com profile] future_sandworm, as always!]

atreideslioness: (History)
Ghanima is looking for a pair of minions TAs for World Mythology, to be determined by the whims of the RNG. Duties include passing out handouts, posting for me if I get eaten by RL, and, if there's a myth you're passionate about, the opportunity to teach class that day.

Also, laughing at your classmates for the final, but we'll get there.

Comments are screened, TAs will be drawn on Wednesday the 30th.

"I didn't celebrate last year, you know."

Ghanima paid for the food, giving the delivery boy the usual large tip before sending him away and trying to maneuver her way around the weetiny Christmas tress littering the floor and into the kitchenette of her suite, balancing all six boxes of pizza with ease. "It didn't seem right without you here."

[For the twin who was modded with affection & up early for timezone SP of Love. Although if you have a reason to pester the birthday Atreides, feel free to drop in.]

atreideslioness: (Ghani is smirking at you!)
Ghanima was in her office, contemplating ideas for teaching next semester as a break from working on this semester's notes.

If by 'contemplating' you meant pinning the options to the dartboard and throwing knives at them. It was, by far, the most entertaining method of choosing a class Ghanima had come up with yet.

If asked, she'd claim it was a bad habit picked up from Aly, and she'd only be mostly-lying.

[OOC: For a canary and massive SP, but door and post are open.]

The office was still tidy, and a fresh pot of tea was ready and waiting. Ghanima was busy working away on class for Monday, filling the time between parents with reading.

[Door & post open, standard SP disclaimer applies because OMGPARENTWEEKEND EEEEEEEEE. Ghanima's conversation with Tseng is FB, anything about Elena's issues is NFB.]
