Ryu lost concentration as her hair was yanked. But a good bit of her magic was restored. Ryu couldn't show any fear. So she did what she had to do. She froze Nodoka's feet and broke off a sharp shard of ice and cut her hair so she could get free.
Her hair was now a bit below her chin. It was like a boy cut hairstyle now. But that didn't matter right now. The ebony-haired girl then ran off auctually slid on the ice towards Rin and Len with Yuki and that girl. Well she bumpeed into them and slid with them.
"Sorry about freezing the whole school. I'm fine now. ,"she said with a sigh. She was tired and felt queasy. But she wouldn't stop fighting.
Now Listen to Fear Garden while looking at this... XP
Nodoka had no idea what had just happened. Well, that was a bit of an exaggeration, but all in all, everything had happened so fast.
Smoke and steam poured from Nodoka's feet and cloak. Luckily, Nodoka had a weak enchantment on her cape, preventing it from TOTALLY burning up. She'd meant to reinforce it, but she never got around to it, and now the edges were singed.
Iroha released Len's hands, and turned to face Ryu, who had slid over to the three. As she slid to a stop, she started talking, but Iroha really didn't give a damn.
Len had already started blabbering and stalling for time, but due to the updates, the writer didn't feel like going to recap and answer Len's questions. Iroha reached her arms out and caught Ryu as she slid.
Quickly, her arm snaked around the girl's neck and held her into a painful headlock. If Iroha had been listening, she would have figured that Ryu was the one who was responsible for freezing the Hogwarts-sized school into an ice castle.
Magic began to quickly drain from Ryu, converting into energy for Iroha. It was a better wake-up than a cup of coffee.
Ryosuke, on the other hand, was too busy taking care of a teacher to have noticed the bolt Haku sent towards him. It connected with his body, and pain overloaded his senses. He gasped as his joints involuntarily shook.
Falling to his knees, Ryosuke squeezed his eyes shut. There was an entry burn on his back from the electricity. Some magi knew basic healing, but these burns were more than basic.
Ryosuke ground his teeth and set a quick five-layer barrier about himself before rifling through his pockets. Someone like him needed a healing potion.
Nodoka's eyes flashed with anger. Her robe was ruined and her shoes were sopping wet. How dare these brats try to touch her? Her hand shook with anger, and her knuckles turned white from gripping her wand tightly.
She stepped forward, but her foot connected with something. A glance downwards showed a little girl, staring up at Nodoka with large eyes, shivering slightly. When did she get there?
"Get out of the way, brat," Nodoka growled. She hated selfish little snot-nosed brats who relied on adults for everything.
Nodoka kicked the girl in the torso and focused her power, concentrating on her wand.
"Umbra magicae," she hissed. Immediately, the lights dimmed, and shadows lengthened. A magic circle danced on the floor, under Nodoka's sodden feet.
Shadows rose and danced around the furious black-haired girl, pitch-black tendrils snaking out in all directions.

Ryu was really getting tired of this. With as much strength as she could muster she kicked Iroha in the knees. As to make her fall. Then she placed her tip-toes on the ice and the ice sprouted up and froze Iroha's legs.
She didn't need magic to use the ice on the ground for her advantage. The ice was one with her. With another kick she kicked Iroha in the stomach. Soon she was free again. She would have to meditate somewhere.
But then Nodoka did some weird shadow thing. Ru was terrified. She had to figure out how to use her ice to her advantage to get out. With no time to spare the panicy girl slid on the ice and narrowly dodged a shadow.
This was more trouble than she thought. She had to bend and be flexible. It hurt to bend like a gymnastic person. But Ryu had to get out of here. With a gush of ice coming up it shielded her for just enough time to get to a door.
It was frozen though. So Ryu had no choice but to kick it down. After the first two times it didn't bidge then on the third it fell down with a crash. Just before another shadow came after her she ran down the hall.
With no thought she ran off somewhere in the building. She found a quiet safe place and pulled out a couple chocolate bars and devoured them and began to meditate again. She would return once she had enough energy.
Nodoka's tendrils snaked out. She was furious AT Ryu, and therefore was aiming FOR Ryu. The tentacle wrapped around Ryu's leg, dragging her towards the room, scraping her against the wet floors.
The chocolate bars shook and fell out of her fingers, falling to the stone floor. As it pulled her back, it crawled up her legs, smothering her body, slowly rising to cover her entire being. It didn't get that far, though. By the time Ryu was pulled back into the testing room, it had barely passed her knee.
Iroha gripped her stomach, unaware of her surrounding. Always had she been quite a dunce. She quivered on the freezing floor, wetting the knees of her pants. The ice all around was melting at a fast pace.
Ryosuke downed the bitter potion. The mint added to it didn't make it anymore palatable. It was like squirting toothpaste in a construction worker's butthole after he'd just gone to the bathroom after working hard all day and then licking it off.
Ryosuke gagged, but he felt his back mend, as well as some skin on his right leg, which must have been where the burn escaped. Never, Ryosuke thought to himself, smiling slightly, attend a raid unprepared.
He brushed a tear out of his eye and warily checked to make sure nothing would attack him when he lowered his shields. A few teachers and some foolhardy students were poised to attack. Well, f***.
(Sorry, guys. I got mad. Oops. But I'm too lazy to change it. Sorry. Again. m(_ _)m
Oh, and Ryu, a bit below the chin is either a girl style, or it IS like Haku's from Spirited Away... Unless her features are manly or her hair is curly like my friend Julius', then it's a girl hair-cut, dontcha think?)

After being kicked so harshly, so meanly by the intruder girl, Miisha curled up on the ice holding her torso, sobbing. " That hurt!" she cried out to no one in particular. Everyone was too busy being busy to notice a child lying on the ice in obvious, albeit not serious, pain.
Upset at being ignored, Miisha crawled slowly towards where Yuki was standing, watching the direction where Ryu had run off to. She sniffed and wiped the tears away from her face before standing up with some difficulty.
" Yuki, let's go home!" she said in a whiney voice. " I'm scared of staying here. I don't wanna be killed!" She hiccuped and began to cry again. A slight breeze began to stir in the air.
Teenage innocence.... a wonderful thing to hold on to...

Len felt pretty useless to the situation. He and Rin both were not helping. He was so afraid. He didn't really know what else to do. Should he just let his peers get beat up without his help? He couldn't 'regenerate' his powers as fast as most people, or whatever the heck everybody else was complaining about in this role play, so he was pretty much useless.
He whimpered something underneath his breath, more to himself, a note to stay focused either way. The blond boy glanced down at the ground. Ryu could freeze this entire school, yet she couldn't rescue them?
Upon seeing Miisha's blow to the torso, he was completely fearful. Len wanted to speak to Rin, but his lips her cold, and his mouth was sewn shut. He tried to conduct his ability again, but it wouldn't come out. Just a tiny spark flopped out, as if his hands were those stupid sparklers you can get with fireworks.
And this whole entire time, his twin sister was being so quiet. Was she shocked? ... Was she... dead? Len reached forward, patting her on the shoulder to see if she would respond. Just as he did this, he looked back to the action. To make sure nobody was observing them.
It seemed as if Nodoka and Ryu were in full-fledged battle. What in the world was her abilities? He couldn't exactly tell what the heck was going on between them. He just hoped the outcome was good. If Ryu could manage all the way through, and save them, he promised himself to give her a manly high five or something of the sort.
Iroha was on the floor, cringing. As much as he felt bad for her, he couldn't help but to be mad, as well. He shook his head, ignoring the upcoming ideas that tried to fill his brain. He tried to stay alert, but something just made him feel.... not there. He, like Miisha, just wanted to go back home, ignore everything that happened, and try to forget the fact that he was a mutated human that could shoot electricity from his hands.

(sooo sorry! ;A; I've been swamped by school...so rin kinda stood there! Let's see if I can do this...I'm not trying to god mode...but gumi needs love, and I need a reason why rin did that...sowwy! )
Rin shook her head. Fear and shock, first at the intrusion and the threat to the lives of everyone in the school, especially her twin who thankfully shielded her, and the gruesome attack of the teacher left her stranded where she was, frozen solid, incomprehensibly afraid, like she never had been. Her blue eyes stared out seeing everything and nothing. She wasn't aware of this until her before mentioned twin shook her shoulder.
Rin snapped back to the present, all the pent up energy she had been working on, unbeknownst to Iroha, who picked up on Len but not Rin, shot out of her hands, her fear releasing the blocks she had created, and a blast of blue electricity shot all across the hall, a strong wind knocking everyone over. Her anger at the injustice mutated the energy, and instead of harming the individuals struck, a rare occurrence happened: they absorbed the energy thrust upon them.
Rin's blue eyes flickered, golden lashes kissing each other, and then her eyes closed, and she fell to her knees, a headache ripping through her skull. The energy she had worked so hard to muster was gone. Her emotions over ran her logic. She had been controlled by fear.
A cloaked figure peered from around the main door. She had been in the basement originally, and at the sound of commotion charged upstairs. She pulled her red tinted goggles over her eyes, and pulled up the hood of her sweater and slouched in. She worked her way around the perimeter, wondering if she could help.
Gumi saw the destruction, and saw the young blond snap, electricity cousing out and set up a reversal spell. A basic spell from her first year. But she applied it to her principle. Mechanics. She was an engineer, she applied the principles of engineering and mechanics to humans...we would call her a sage or a physcic. But a poor one. For she even aided the enemy. In her panic, the gates she had set up weakened, and she could hear the thoughts of every single person in the room. She frantically tried to close them, defenses down when she stumbled over a black pig-tailed girl, and crashed into a pool near a hidden girl.
Gumi cursed and rolled to another cover, begging to be over looked. She couldn't concentrate enough, not that she knew, to control the enemy. Things looked pretty grim.

Len, whom was holding Rin's shoulder at the time, was shocked to the core. However, instead of it being painful, it was more like a rush. He felt as if the blood in his veins pulsed faster than usual. He even felt his heart beat faster, even though it was acting normally just a few seconds ago. It didn't feel very good, to be quite honest.
The energy Rin had released shot through him far too much than it should have, seeing as he was the closest to her. He, along with his sister, had fallen down into the puddles that covered the ground. He breathed heavily, trying to hold back an overwhelming feeling that was beating at his chest. It felt as if he were going to... possibly puke?
He glanced up, hearing something come near the group. Len noticed that now his vision was blurring. Oh gosh, what did Rin do to him?
Wait, that's just it. She gave him, and possibly the others, more energy to attack. He lifted his head up, a bit of water dripping from his chin. He blinked, trying to get the water off his eyelashes. Trying to focus, he could see a couple of people. Who was that again? The dude that was with Nodoka and Iroha.
Len put his hand on the water, and stopped his breathing for a moment. Everything, to him, was quiet at the moment, as his concentration thickened. A thick bolt of electricity shot from his hand, and traveled on the puddles of water. He did his best to control it, and sent it towards the male enemy.
Whether it hit or not, it was done. He then stopped holding his breath, and lay there, his face covered in freezing cold water. He still had some of that energy left, but he'd used most of it on that last bolt. Next to him, Rin was on her knees. He carefully reached over, and grabbed her hand, trying to do something else. He could do this, right? They were twins after all. Didn't people like that have some sort of connection that would--
Yes! He could feel it. The power she had given him was slowly dripping out of him, and back to her. Good. That was exactly what he wanted. He waited a moment, then let go of her. He now was beginning to feel rather sleepy. A'right, that was fine.
The blond boy pushed himself up, and crawled over to a wall. There, he kind of just, leaned back, his eyes half-way closed. What the heck was he doing here, again? He'd already forgotten. "I'm so tirrrreddd. Wake me up when the news comes on," He said with a yawn.

Ryosuke cautiously glanced around. It seemed everyone was quite distracted by Nodoka's work, so he lowered his barriers and readied his next attack...
Suddenly, out of NOWHERE, yet ANOTHER electric bolt smashed into Ryosuke's side. He was keeping an eye on the silver haired woman! What the hell?
Ryosuke flew a few feet through the air and slid on the slick, wet floor. Stars danced in front of his eyes and his head spun. Resisting the urge to throw up, Ryosuke glanced to see who his assailant was.
In that direction, a little boy was crawling towards the nearest wall while a small blonde-haired girl who appeared to be his sister was keeled over, holding her head tight. Obviously, one of them was the culprit.
Ryosuke lolled his head back and sent up another barrier. This one was only three layers. Not only that, but he was too exhausted to maintain defence for a long time. Nodoka had better be prepared to split soon.
Iroha coughed and crawled away. Today was not her best day. Massaging her stomach, Iroha examined the chaos about her. Most of the ice had melted, covering the floor in water. People all around were screaming and running.
Now was probably a good time to get the hell out of there and regroup. It seemed that the students were proving more trouble than they thought they would.
"Nodo-chin," Iroha called.
But for Nodoka, she was beyond listening to what others had to say. The reverse spell from Rin had displaced too much energy. The air crackled and Nodoka's dark magic was tainted, causing her spell to spin out of control.
The magic circle, which was idly spinning under Nodoka's feet, expanded greatly so everyone in the room, as well as some unsuspecting people passing through the hallway were suddenly enveloped in shining light.
Nodoka's dark tendrils expanded and exploded, passing through the room's occupants harmlessly before fading into the air and being absorbed into the walls. Nodoka was in the center of the circle, rubbing her temples.
Iroha dove towards Nodoka and Ryosuke dropped his shields. Now things were really going haywire. This was NOT according to plan.
Teachers and students alike stared at the floor in slight confusion. A few had a bad feeling and were aiming for the windows and doors, but it was too late to egress. Shining white light blinded every member, and then suddenly nothing was there anymore.
Iroha watched as the walls faded, then the floor, and then her own body. She tried to hold her hand up to her face, but she couldn't see anything but a pure white. Her sensations were overloaded by a dull tingling.
And then a thud was heard and everything turned pitch black.
Ryosuke opened his eyes and found himself deep in a pool of water. A fish swam by his face and seaweed tickled his ankles. As fast as he could, Ryosuke paddled for the surface, his lungs burning.
Unfortunately, the young man was not a strong swimmer, and by the time he reached the surface, his vision was blurring. The cool air graced poor Ryosuke's lungs as he breathed deeply.
Clinging to the riverbank, he gasped and coughed up water. It took some struggling for him to drag his body out onto the land. Ryosuke lay on the cool grass and stared up at the sky. The sun was still shining, but it was much lower as well as covered by some clouds.
After a few minutes, the young lad sat up and checked his surroundings. Flat plains and mountains in the distance. A river lazily meandered through the tall grasses. Ryosuke shook some water out of his hair before checking again. Yup.
"Oh, Toto," Ryosuke muttered to himself. "I don't think we're in Japan anymore."
In fact, it looked more like Kansas than Tokyo or Oz. As far as he could see, there was flat land everywhere. Overhead, a large flying figure swooped, covering the sun. Ryosuke glanced up at the sky.
It was just a small tiger dragon. Vicious, but not really that dangerous. It was weak to magic, which were many people's specialties. It was especially weak to magics such as ice and electricity.
Wait, a dragon?
"Oh, geez. Nodoka-san took us to the magic world."
He thought back to the events that had occurred earlier. Due to the sudden blast of energy from Rin, Nodoka's spell had been tainted, transforming into a large scale teleportation trick.
Anyone caught in the spell was sent to a random location in the magic world. Whether you would be sent somewhere far from other people or not was a total random roulette.
At maximum, three people might be reunited by chance. Ryosuke glanced around. And for him, no one was close to him. Well, that kind of sucked.
Ryosuke sighed and walked down, following the current of the river.
(I don't know what I'm doing, but oh well. Surprise, surprise? If you don't like my idea, sorry, but let's just get back home safely, shall we?)
Everything flashed a blinding white and Yuki shaded her eyes. Her clothing and hair was blown back and soon, the shade of her hand disappeared. ...Wait. Her HAND disappeared. Was this some sort of disintegration spell? Yuki gasped and ran towards the exit. If she could save her body, her hand was a small price to pay.
A window at the side of the room was spotted and Yuki made a break for it. She slammed open the window and managed to stick her foot out before her entire vision became nothing but white, then black.
Out from cold emptiness, Yuki felt warm sunlight radiate and fall on her skin. The light burned red in her vision despite the protection of her eyelids. Yuki opened her eyes only to shut them tight again. She sat up and blinked a bit. Unfortunately, the magical transfer must have left the little girl weak, because the movement of lying down to a sitting position gave her awful vertigo, and her arms almost gave out. Her head spun and the world seemed to tilt slightly.
"Dear lord.." After a small amount of silence, her voice seemed like a foreign noise and cut the air. She winced.
Yuki looked about her. In front of her, sand stretched as far as the eye could see, fading off into the distance. To her left, more sand. The right, sand. Behind her, sand. Sand, sand, sand.
"Sand." Yuki mumbled out. "I mean, damn."
There were rocks and cacti dotting the dessert and to her left, shadowy mountains hung in the distance. Rocky cliffs seemed to surround the desert in every other direction. The clear blue sky seemed to stretch on forever and regrettably, not a single cloud hung in the sky. A line vulture circled in the distant heaven, but that was it.
There was no breeze, and barely any noise. It was a wasteland, as expected, and Yuki stood up and began to walk to her left. Might as well head to the mountains. Maybe there would be something there for her. Obviously, nothing was here.
