Drama Class [In Session]

Post  Bailey on Mon Dec 27, 2010 3:21 pm

Welcome to Drama!

Currently being taught by: Nero

It's a massive theater, the stage lit dimly and the curtains were pulled towards the side. There's a piano on the floor next to the stage. Seats surrounded the stage, only from the front of course, however each chair was empty. The arm rests/cup holders were pulled back. The carpetted floors were pristine and clear of any debris or trash. On the walls there were posters of previous performances of past students. Dust covered said posters, however if you look closely...is there a chance you could make out pictures of some of the teachers?

Callahan was all clean and properly dressed in his black T with a light green paw print and jeans as he peered into the theater. Well, he was on time for class, he was pretty sure.. but there wasn't a single soul in the expansive room. He quietly slipped in through the double doors and made his way down the carpeted stairs that led to the stage.

"Ah.. 's beautiful.." It was still a room, so it made him a tad nervous, but his reflective eyes caught any light in the dim room and gave him the chance to see if the walls were going to close in on him first. He's been to several outside Theaters but.. never one inside before. The stage was magnificent, a light almost white wood. Clean and glazed. He leaned forwards and set his fuzzy hands down upon it, gently stroking his claws over it's glazed surface, then he pushed himself up onto the stage. The red curtains were drawn and tied to either side with golden cords, the back walling was a solid black.

His black tail swished back and forth as he curiously inspected around the stage, and then over to the piano. Oh how he wished he could play.. But seeing as one can not haul a piano about in the jungle, he never became attuned to any particular instrument except the bongo drums he played in his pack. And oh how he could play those... but anything else just fascinated him.

His black suede shoes made gentle taps as he stepped towards the piano, then took a seat in front of it. With an experimental prod, he hit a few keys just to hear the noise they made. A soft smile crept across his lips as his sharp nails tapped against a few more keys. This was one thing his nails couldn't destroy, unlike pencils and paper.

He then set his fingertips along the keys and closed his eyes, imagining that he was one of those background music players in the plays he watched. The way their fingers danced across the keys to blend the songs perfectly into the play so when the scene would change, the music would flawlessly as well. He wasn't playing the keys, but he was humming along to the music in his head as his fingers danced along the ivory keys.

It WAS class afterall, and he was alone.. no one could see him, right?

Trixy had went to her dorm, took a shower grabbed lunch but decided to check out her drama class too, since Callahan was going.
Oh joy, another giant empty dark room. DOINK! Trixy screamed like a child and looked about the massive dark room. Creepy portraits all over the walls. Trixy never took drama back home. This was an entirely new, and likely something she wasn't good at, one of the few things. "Er.. Hello!? Does there happen to be a teacher in this class? ...Of course not, go figure. ...Whose playing the piano!?" Trixy made herself look real tough, ready for anything that popped out of the dark. "I'll teach yah a thing or two!" Wanting to be a show off like always.
Trixy might not be a actor, or charming in any manner, she might not be the top athlete, she might not be the smartest kid in the world, or a dancer either, but she was one thing and that was a musician. She had dreams of marching bands, and orchestras. She knew how to play quite a few instruments, but not the guitar. In her opinion it was overrated.
She couldn't see a damn thing, the room was so dark! And she had no idea how to work theater lights, but she knew they were connected at a switch board. She frowned silently in the dark. She dropped her messenger bag on the floor and tried desperately to use her poke'gear as a light.

Callahan yelped and broke out of his dream-like state as soon as he heard her scream. His large hands dropped and hit several keys, which resounded loudly in the theater. Callahan immediately covered his ears which began ringing from both high pitched noises and his eyes, reflecting a yellowish cats eye from any light they could capture (And probably looking even more scary D:) turned to Trixy at the top of the steps. Is she following me..?

"I'll teach yah a thing or two!"

Callahan laughed and raised his hands in mock surrender, which was barely seen from the light coming in the doorway. " 'a come in peace!" He grinned, his long fangs glinting in the barely visible light. "Ya got drama too, aye Trixy?" He called out and stood from the piano.

Trixy cringed at the yellow eyes and loud noises . What happened to your tough guy attitude Trixy, huh!?"Eh! Dracula, cut it out!" In reality maybe she wasn't that though with out a golf club. She glared back at the yellow eyes intently. Then out of the dark she recognized Callahan's voice.
"Yup, sure do~" Trixy whistled, "I know you come in peace goober. Are you interested in piano? Help me find some lights, yanno since you can see, assuming you made it all the way up there." Waved her had in a gesture suggesting she was almost bored. Still no sign of a teacher. Geez. She felt like leaving but first... show off a bit, make the guy's day.

Callahan chuckled and began walking up to her, seeing as that's where the lights were, but the reflective yellow eyes, glint of a fang, and mass of a shadowed black body probably didn't help her nervous situation much. "Ah.. 'a could neva' play ta piano.. I can do ta bongo drums? I jus' like ta listen to the keys play, it's soothing," he smiled as he passed her, then turned right. He took a couple more steps them flicked both lights on.

With a small yip he shut his widened pupil eyes, not expecting it to be that damn bright, and rubbed at them through fuzzy hands. "Ow god'dammit," he growled to himself as he kept rubbing at his eyes.

Trixy smiled dully thankful she could finally see. Just likes to listen? Perfect! "Well if thats the case, let me play a bit. I can't fit a piano in my dorm!" She slapped his back whole heartedly. She walked down to the stage and hoped on the piano bench. She took a minute to examine all the sheet music and decided on something dramatic to start. Slow so she could get used to the feel of the particular piano. "Bongo's are cool to, you have to keep rhythm, thats important." The music changed to something up beat. Then she pulled her hands off the key board. It'd be great to just get to do that instead of act.

Callahan stiffened at the slap to his muscled back, and he removed his hands to open his eyes and cock his eyebrow as he watched her set off towards the stage. What a strong woman. He took a moment to blink a few times, then followed her down the stairs, this time stopping at the stage to rest his elbows upon it and watch her. " 'ere good fer meh claws. Can' pierce through it," he spread out both large hands sporting 1/4 inch of soft fuzzy black fur and filed down thick claws. " 's good fer ta pack too, kin'na like a tribal thing," he brought his gaze back up to her as she rifled through a few music sheets.

He swooned gawked as she began to dip into melodious, dramatic, music and his eyes closed so he could hone his long ears onto it. He stayed silent, listening, until she was finished, this his ruby eyes fixed back on her. "You got meh vote fer piano when we do plays~" he smiled, flashing a line of sharp fangs.

"Oh! I bet it is, that's pretty cool." She was intrigued by the idea of tribal drumming. Trixy wasn't big on drumming constant rhythm, other instruments you could play tempo regardless and no one knew the difference.

"Oh thank goodness! But tell me Callahan, can you sing and dance!?" She asked dramatically. She chuckled and started playing again, seeing as Callahan seemed to be getting that simple happiness that anyone should enjoy, and receiving it via music made it only that much better. Trixy started singing some stupid song that everyone knew, and badly at that, since she was a terrible singer. She kept singing and playing regardless, and just mumbled the parts she couldn't completely remember.

((I'm just going to go along with him knowing the song xD He's really good at physical (And verbal) things but just sucks ass at reading/writing/math because it doesn't catch his interest... and pencils just piss him off xD.))

Callahan grinned and nodded, dismissing the dramatic tone in her voice which probably meant she was kidding. Well, he could dance with direction. Just not make something up on the spot. And to refrain from looking like a fool when she began to sing, he only toned in his much deeper voice instead. His forefinger kept the beat by rapping his long nail against the stage floor and his tail swished back and forth behind him. He loved singing, no matter the song, and since he recognized this one he was able to tone his voice along with it perfectly. Ah, how he'd love to be in a musical! Both quick movement and singing! That would be lovely~

(I was hoping you would! Lol, I could imagine this pencils being an issue. :P)
She laughed, sung, and played piano at the same time! Oh, what if the teacher walked in the there, she'd be in for a treat! Callahan's deep rich voice blended with Trixy's 'howl' nicely, she didn't actually sound half bad with accompaniment, not to mention he was a human metronome. Oh, this was great, ah, she kind of reminded her of Scotty only hat Scotty was a small framed boy that let Trixy handle things, but those were small in comparison of the other traits they shared. "Man, this class is gonna be a hoot, as long as I'm at this damn piano, tapping on these ivory keys~" She smiled, and played quiet and some what slow, boring music, just to occupy herself. Music was just so fascinating.

(( Claws+pencils=Death x.x;))

Callahan laughed while he sung, enjoying this. Ah, if only all of drama could be like this! But no... his competitive nature would lead him to fight for the main roles, especially in musicals. Meanwhile, this was playful and fun. "Ah, well. Ya play really good, I wouldn' see why ya cann' play it," He smiled up at her, though his ruby eyes were focused on her fingers playing. She made it look so easy, as if hitting any key would produce beautiful music. His tail fidgeted as he watched, wanting oh so bad to play, as if he could just glide his hands over the keys, though he knew better.. Big hands were not meant for swift delicate movement.

She looked at him and laughed, "Come on! I know you want to play. Come here!" She stood up and pointed at the bench. "It ain't hard. Promise. Mary Had a Little Mareep, alright?" She said with all the authority in the world, he was gonna play it no matter if it was manly or not! "Come, come, sit down. What are you waiting for?"

Callahan's eyes went wide and he shook his head, which fluffed out his silver and black hair. "A cann'!" He held up his fuzzy black hands and wiggled his thick fingers, "T'ey dun move fast enough." He was, in a way, telling the truth. Big bulky hands tended to not move fast enough to properly play the piano.. though he could possibly train them to.

His tail swished a bit more, a nervous stick, and he stayed right in his spot below the stage. He wasn't about to make a fool of himself in front of the first female he's come across who carries herself like an Alpha! And Mary Had a Little Mareep!? Seriously?! "Ah, you belong on ta piano. Not me," he smiled sheepishly up to her, being stubborn, even though he was bracing himself from being physically being pulled up on stage. He wouldn't put it past her to be able to do that.

"Oh, your such a bum! Come on! That's the first song EVERYBODY learns!" Her eyebrows dropped low on her face and she tapped her foot, which made a loud resounding noise. She studied him. Everyone had some musical potential, it was a thing that could be learned."Alright, but then you have to dance, can ya show me a dance? Like Broadway. Can you tap? Scotty used to tap, he was a man!" That'd be so cool! Trixy had all ways been fascinated with tap. It was an amazing talent, Scott had always been talented with anything that made noise. If Callahan could move his feet fast enough then he could play piano. she just had to trick him into playing the piano. She smiled, yup, she'd win this battle.

For a mightyena, he wasn't being very intimidating at the moment. As soon as she started to tap her foot, his ears flared back and his tail stopped swishing.

Dance? He could dance. He could even get the hang of tap real quick, if he could find a pair of shoes that fit his feet, but.. " I ccaann..." His voice was low and drawn out, unsure. She was tricking him, he knew it. She was tricking him into making a fool of himself. He sighed deeply, defeated, and with one huff he pushed himself up onto the stage. At least there wasn't anyone else present, he'll be this woman's entertainment for the time being. "Aye, ya owe me summin' down the line then.." He practically sulked as he waved his hand to her, "Play summin', I'll show ya how I dance. Get summin' dramatic, I prefer musicals."

"Oh, don't look so sad, your hurting my feelings." She frowned at him, she did want to help him play piano, but if he'd rather dance, that was cool too, "But put soul into! Don't feel forced! Dramatic is great but how bout some jazz? Somethin' classy eh? And i owe ya somethin, promise." She smiled. Due to the fact that Callahan was 'home schooled' she wasn't sure how much he really knew about any of this crap, Trixy was a hardcore city girl, and it probably showed. She wailed on the piano and really showed off, she let her fingers dance, showing her deep seated love for all that was swing, hitting a wrong note once or twice but she was trying to watch Callahan, then slowly but artfully slipped into the dark dramatic overture that was spelled out on the sheet music.

Callahan chuckled and shook his head, " A bit shy, I am."

As she began to play, Callahan toned his ears on the music. This was one he didn't recognize, but after a few moments of listening to it he was able to get a grasp on the beat. He was easily quick on his feet as he danced to the music she played, only slipping up for a moment when the beat would change and he would have to switch his style. His long bushy tail and silver hair swayed behind him every which way he would move. He wasn't half bad on this one.

Though when she began to play the dramatic music, that one he recognized, and was able to follow along accurately. His new shoes tapped along with him as he would dance and slide across the stage. He laughed along as he nearly tripped and caught himself, following through back into the dance as if nothing had happened. "See, 'is is why you'd be good at ta piano, 'n I can dance instead."

"You sure can! Don't be so shy!" Trixy laughed, he danced great, tap shoes came in all sizes, then she realized... Where does he get money from? Would it be rude to ask. She bit her lip. She started playing jazz again, just to make noise. There's no teacher here either... was Bailey going to coach soccer and teacher her how to dance too?

"Why isn't there a teacher in here!? My parents would die if they knew they were paying for a school that's worse than public school? I mean sure there were gangs, and druggies, and the place ran on my dad's 'donations', but at least there were teachers!" She was a self taught musician starting on the clarinet at age 10, and Scotty started on the trumpet, they helped each other. But everything else, every sport was taught to her. Do teachers exist here? Would Callahan even know what she was talking about?
Her fingers just danced and she didn't even seem to be paying attention, like they had a mind of their own.

" 'a dunno, I haven't met a single teach'," He slid back to her and set his hands on his knees to peer over her shoulder. He didn't, in fact, know what she was talking about. Gangs he knew.. but what he knew was completely different than her type of gangs. But drugs? No, he was kept clean away from that stuff. "Well, if ya want ta see me dance, t'en yer gonna have to dance wit' me," He grinned, baring sharp glinting fangs as he held out a hand for her. He could dance without music, it wasn't hard.

She looked at Callahan like he was plum nuts, the music stopped dead. "I don't dance." She stated defiantly. She wanted Callahan to play the piano now he had her in the same position. She held firm. She owned a pair of tap shoes, people tried to teach her how to do it on multiple occasions. She frowned. She was to damn klutzy, and a bit of a spaz, but she had learned how to swing dance, like the used to, way long ago when big band jazz was popular. She tried her best to explain it. " Do you know how to dance in that style?", She wasn't good at it, but she wasn't going to run away either.

Callahan chuckled and nodded to her, "Yes m'lady, 'a can do t'at. If ya dance with me, I'll let cha hear me bang on keys, aye?" He waggled his bulky, 1/4 fuzzy fur covered, fingers for her to take his hand. It didn't have to be good, but they were at least having fun and wasting time while there was no class.. and no one else in the room to tease them.

" Deal!" the dancing started with out a hitch, it was going pretty well for the both of them. It was the only dance she was good at, or decent at least. All the spins were pretty good with a few mistakes every once in awhile, and then when it came to a big dip, she lost her balance and her small hand slipped right out of Callahan's and her legs flew up and she rolled right over Callahan's arm and fell flat on her back. "Ooof, oww... damn, that kinda hurt... but it was fun... kinda." She groaned and reacher for her hat that had fallen off. She sat up and looked around and held her head with one hand. "Your turn..." She motioned to the piano.

He took it slow, seeing as it has been while since he danced with a partner. It was actually... what, four years now since he danced with the other mightyena female? His thoughts about her were probably what caused him to not have a tight grip on Trixy's hand, and which sent her over him. Immediately his tail furled and he whipped around to kneel in front of her, "Aye! Are ya alright? 'm so sorry." He set one hand on top of hers, then as she reached for her hat he quickly leaned over, picked it up, then handed it to her.

As she motioned towards the piano, he glanced back to it for a moment, then back to her, still worried. " 'm more worried about ya than playin'. 'ows yer 'ead?" The more anxious he was, the thicker his slur was through the large fangs. His ruby colored eyes looked up to where her hand was on her head and he looked her over to make sure she wasn't bleeding.

"Don't worry 'bout it. I might be a girl, but I ain't a sissy!" Trixy stated as she put her hat back on and adjusted it till just right. She looked Callahan right in the eye and lifted one eyebrow. And pointed at the piano once more. "Deals a deal, and your a man who doesn't break promises, hm? Head's fine, I've fell dancing before. Like a million times actually. Quit your worrying, wimp. " Poor Callahan sure was intimidated by a giant piece of wood and strings. She wished he would just try it, she knew he wanted too. She spun around on the floor not wanting to get up quiet yet.
