Your professors already explained the rules, but are you ready?

There's a bear on every other desk, and rows and rows of names chalked down on the whiteboard listing all the student pairs. For the next month, you're going to be taking care of a stuffed bear with a partner that mimics all the needs of a human infant. If things go wrong, you won't just be hit with an F... Apparently, these things are rigged to explode if you abuse or neglect them. No one seems sure if that's true or not, but maybe you'd be better off not finding out.

Next to your bear, there's a certificate detailing your bear's name, fur color, and... parents. The name slot is left blank. It looks like that's up to you and your new partner.

Are you prepared?

Her hands were shaking.

No, no, no, no, no.

What the hell were they thinking?

Electricity flared wildly around her, but she didn't pay any attention, her glare stuck on the two names written down on the whiteboard.

Kayla Croft - Preston Andrews

Out of all the people in this school, they'd paired her up with him? She took in a deep breath and closed her eyes, rubbing at her temples. Okay. Fine. Maybe this wasn't such a big deal. It was just a stupid bear, and they lived together anyways. At least she hadn't been paired up with some idiot she didn't even know, right? More electricity crackled in her hair and twined around her wrists. Fuck. Trying to find positives wasn't working. Anger simmered in her chest, and she felt like she was about to burst. She might've even taken it out on the bear sitting on her desk, but then she would've gotten landed with an F before the project even started.

If these things really did explode, maybe she'd hand it off to Pres before zapping it.

This project was stupid enough to begin with, but when it first got announced, she'd grudgingly accepted it. This was one of the few classes where she had a decent grade, and she didn't want to tank it and close out the semester with Fs and Ds across the board with a few exceptions. But right now, she really was considering tapping out before this project even started. Did they have to play house like this? If they were going to pair students up, did they have to keep calling it 'marriage?'

Kayla gingerly reached out for the slip of paper on her desk and held it up by the corner like it was toxic.

Name: ______
Fur: Caramel auburn
Mother: Kayla Maple Croft
Father: Preston Daniel Andrews


The name slot was blank. She glared at the bear from over the paper. So far, not a peep, but that'd change soon. Already, a few bears around the classroom were starting to wail.

Kayla dropped the paper with a sigh, burying her head in her hands. Fuck. She'd let him name the stupid thing.



Oh, fuck.

Evelyn had listened to the whole presentation about the bears in a stupefied haze. Something about the challenges of parenthood, but why did they have to explode too? Were they crazy? Was that how dangerous parenthood really was? She frowned, her eyes wandering over the list... Ethan. That still made her uneasy, but she couldn't help but breathe a sigh of relief. She knew Ethan, at least. It was better than having to bond with a complete stranger, or someone who lived outside their dorm. If they had to do this, then at least she could do it with a roommate.

She gently grabbed at the bear and scooped it up into her arms, glancing around the classroom to make sure the action didn't look too stupid.

Name: ______
Fur: Dark brown
Mother: Evelyn May White
Father: Ethan Matthew Riley


It looks like they'd both missed out on Kimply, huh? Evelyn bit at her lip, reaching out and picking a pen up off her desk. Evelyn jotted down a name in neat letters.

James



Jane was perched on the edge of her desk, the bear wrapped up in her arms. It felt too heavy for something that should've been made out of stuffing, but she couldn't complain. This was the kind of project that she thought only happened in sitcoms, but here she was, with a ticking time bomb pressed up against her chest. Just like real children. If you didn't keep an eye on them, they exploded.

It was alright. She loved stupid fun, and wasn't stupid or fun about playing house and taking care of a teddy bear? Jane didn't expect to pass, and she didn't care. For now, her grade didn't matter.

She glanced down at the slip of paper still sitting on her desk.

Name: ______
Fur: Dirty blonde
Mother: Jane Cordelia Grey
Father: Cayden Garrett Hawke


Cayden, huh? She didn't think she'd ever met him, but she had to hope he wasn't a stick in the mud. Jane was already picking through a list of baby names in her head. She couldn't ever have real children, so this was as close as she'd ever get.

When the professor had first announced the event, he was kind of hoping that his month long coma would exempt him from raising the bear child. But he'd thought, eh, might end up with someone cute and walk out of March with a lifelong buddy, bonded together by the trials of parenthood. He should have kept his expectations low.

Name: ______
Fur: Punch Pink
Father: Jonathan Christopher Kent
Father: Liam Grey Mason

Jonathan looked blankly at the bear, his hands holding onto the certificate that he'd been issued by the professor in class. The bear looked at him back. It was kind cute? Innocent beady, black eyes that called to him to treat it gently. Overly large head that made it look stupidly cute. Bright reddish-pink fur that looked a perfect mix of his partner's and his hair. Which brought him back to why he was looking so confused and out of touch, his partner was Liam. Or, as he was better own to Jonno, that guy he got in a fight with at formal after he'd had a few too many cups of the spiked punch. Good times.

This bear was doomed.

He had no clue how they were going to raise this ticking time bomb, would they share a dorm room? Would this end up a custody battle, except the aim being to spend as little time with it as possible? How? He sighed internally, using his spare hand to run it roughly through his pink hair. He'd been getting migraines since his mission down under on a rather frequent basis, and dealing with this was already setting one off. Oh bugger.

"Well, mate. Got a name in mind for the bub?" He asked the redhead, the first words he'd spoke to him since formal, and since this little event happened.


Cayden watched lazily from his seat at the names were put up, he was on there. A surprise considering his track record with school property, he'd thought that they'd try to keep him away from the explosive, not hand deliver it to him. He watched as others flocked together, some with glee, others with resigned despair, before he gradually got up from his chair to walk past desks till he found a slip of paper with his name. The girl was a blonde, pretty, but that wasn't a surprise, most girls at Beata looked like they walked off a fashion magazine. "They say parenthood is supposed to be one of the most rewarding experiences, but.." He shrugged. "Been there, done that. Wanna run off and see if it really explodes or not?" He offered, flicking the bear on the nose to see if it actually reacted to stimuli or if it was just a dumb doll. It looked just like one of the bears that Stephanie would whine for him to try get at the local fairs, cumbersomely large and useless.

She'd gone over the names written up on the whiteboard once, twice even, no, three times to be sure that she hadn't been reading it wrong. Her name hadn't been listed after all and she couldn't help but wonder if the school had maybe forgotten her.

The Spring leaned over on the desk, resting her cheek against her hand and watching as all the other bears were passed out around the room. People were already starting to get together and name their little "families". Maybe it was for the best that she was left out of the project. She didn't know the first thing about children, much less caring for a baby of all things - fake or not. Both of her parents were single children, so she had no cousins to see grow up. Whilst she did have a brother, he was a few years older than she was herself.

At least it'd save her grade... Or so she'd thought before finally one of the large teddy bears was plopped down onto her desk along with a small slip of paper. They hadn't passed her by after all? She quickly picked up the paper, looking over it.

Name: _____
Fur: Golden Blond
Mother: Brailynn Crystal Moore
Father: _____


So they hadn't forgotten her in particular after all, they'd just never bothered to give her a partner? Lynn frowned, thinking how little sense that made, that was until she'd turned her hazel eyes to the stuffed animal itself. It's beady, black eyes stared back at her - almost through her it seemed. There didn't seem to be anything strange about it, except the color. They were supposed to reflect the parents, weren't they? She was blonde, but it as more of a dirty blonde than anything -

And then it clicked. Brailynn bit her lip, a light pink flushing her cheeks and she couldn't help but glance around, to be sure no one saw her embarrassment. Quickly, the young woman whipped out a pencil, filling out the rest of the sheet.

Name: Lynard

It was the first dorky name to come to mind.

Father: Richard Lee Sanford

She wrote in his name lightly, enough so you'd have to look closely at the paper to see the words and looked back at the bear. Did he already know? How was she going to explain this...?






Even from across the room, it was all-too easy to see how pissed off she was about this entire thing. If she sent off any more sparks, she might set off every bear in the entire fucking classroom. The thought of it almost made him laugh, thinking what an amusing mess that would've been. Preston wasted little time in pulling himself up and onto his feet. Although he'd still had his foot in it's cast, he'd gotten rather used to walking around with his crutch and was at his new partner's desk in no time.

"Aren't you the proudest new mother?" He smiled crookedly, staring down at the bear sitting dully on her desk. It was such an uncanny thing, so adorable, but it still managed to creep him out. "Turn down the power, Pikachu. You're gonna hurt the baby." What an inconsiderate mommy.

He took it upon himself to borrow Kayla's pencil, staring down at the blank space, trying to think up of a name. It took some moments, but he finally came up with the perfect one.

Name: Elesa

Elesa Croft? Elesa Andrews? Or would only Elesa be alright? Whatever. He tossed the pencil back down at the table, smirking at his own genius. Many wouldn't understand it, but he knew, and that's all that mattered. Now so long as this thing behaved and didn't keep him up all night, or distract him from his games, they'd get along just fine.






Ethan had recognized his name written across the board, along with that of his quiet roommate's, but admittedly it had taken him longer than he'd cared to admit to find his new partner.

He was disappointed. There was no other way of putting it. The winter had no interest in any sort of child-care assignment, however he also wasn't willing to completely ignore it, lest it force his grades to suffer and ruin his perfect GPA. If there was anyone he could have done the project with, he would have longed to have Kimberly as a partner. She was the one in the entire school he'd always felt the more comfortable with.

With Evelyn... He supposed he couldn't find reason to complain. They were roommates, so watching after the "child" would be all the more convenient for the both of them. It wasn't as if they'd never had gotten along either.

Once he'd finally made his way towards the desk, he'd noticed at once that she'd already had a name picked out. "James? Good choice," he mused in approval. "What do we do with this now? How does it work?" Ethan reached over with both hands, picking up the stuffed animal and holding it up to eye-level. It almost off-set his balance, not expecting it to be as heavy as it was. "Is it aware of all our actions? Does it have a preference for parent?" He began twisting the bear around, looking at it from every angle; on the side, around the back, upside down. It didn't take long for the bear to let out a high-pitch squeal. His face paled.






'Punch Pink'. This school had some terrible sense of humor, didn't it?

Begrudgingly, he'd walked over next to Bubblegum's desk, giving the stuffed animal the same empty stare as the man next to him. Admittedly, in the silence he was running through his previous scores in the class, wondering if he could still afford to let the damn thing explode without totally tanking his grade. All things considering, it didn't look as if he had any other options than to try and raise the weird-looking teddy bear with this Aussie piece of work.

If he were to be honest, he hardly knew anything about this guy, nor had he hardly ever seen him outside of the hellish scene they'd caused in the middle of the formal. But he didn't have to know the guy to hate the sight of his face. It was made all too clear where their interests clashed and that knowledge alone was enough to nurture his distaste for the guy, drunken bar-esque fights aside. Being stuck trying to take care of the punch-colored fur-ball felt nothing short of an over-due punishment to him, or so it felt like. Maybe that's exactly what it was.

All his bitterness aside, he found himself distractedly staring down at the doll, mulling over names. "What could you call a thing like this?" He raised an eyebrow, crossing his arms tightly together. "Barbie? Strawberry? ... Pink Nightmare?" Liam stared it down a few moments longer before an indignant look crossed his face. Wait, why did he even give a damn in the first place? "Does it even matter? It's just a stupid toy. It doesn't need a name." The Summer reached over and began yanking at the poor bear's ear.

Gabe looked confused as he saw the teddy bear being placed on his desk. He looked it over and noticed that it looked very average, like a normal teddy bear. But he knew something was up.

Name: _______
Fur: Golden Blond
Mother: Erin Marie Gallagher
Father: Gabriel Lee Macauley


So he was partnered with Erin for this experiment? He didn't have any problems with that. In fact, he kinda fancied the girl. Not that he was going to outright tell the girl. No way. He was too nervous. But, at least, he got the chance to "raise" a "child" with her, if only for a little while. Now the only issue was picking out a name. He'd have to talk to Erin about it, obviously, but he thought of traditional names from the UK. He grabbed the bear and headed over to the spot where Erin was sitting. "Looks like we're the proud parents of a... Teddy Bear." he said, laughing.






Matthew looked similar to Gabe as the teddy bear was placed on his desk. He, too, noticed that it looked ordinary. The Winter grabbed the certificate attached to the bear. He read:

Name: _____
Fur: Dark Brown
Mother: Sophia Claire Nohr
Father: Matthew Ethan Thomsen


His heart fluttered slightly when he saw that Sophia was written down as the mother. He hadn't talked to her much since they had fallen asleep on his couch, but he would be glad to be able to talk to her on a daily basis. The boy had no idea why they hadn't talked much. Maybe it was so he had time to try and push away the feelings he had for the girl? Probably, but it didn't work as well as he had hoped. Maybe "raising" a "child" will take the fun out of having a crush on the girl. He looked around the room for the girl and when he spotted her, he headed over to the spot where she was, carefully holding the bear as he went. "So uh.. looks like we're partners. Fun, right?"

Gahhhh! The last thing she fucking needed to hear right now was his stupid fucking voice! She could hear him coming before he even spoke, clunking across the classroom with that big fat shackle around his ankle. When he started to speak in that same old mocking tone of his, she should've just pushed him over, but she held herself back. No, no. Restraint. It wouldn't look good if she went around beating up a cripple. Even she had standards. Still, did he forget who was taking care of him while he was lumbering around with a crutch?

Kayla glared up at him, grinding her teeth. "I told you not to call me that!" she snapped, sparks shooting out of her cheeks. She returned her gaze to the paper as he jotted down a name. Elesa. That was a stupid name. It's not like it mattered though. The thing was just a stupid doll, right?



Ahh... There he was. Evelyn couldn't help but shrink slightly in her chair as he approached. Um, she was glad he wasn't making it weird or anything, but this didn't feel like natural conversation... Did he have to talk about it in such scientific terms? With a small, barely audible sigh, she supposed it was better than what she could've gotten. She sat there, frowning, as he spun it around in his hands, poking around like it was some kind of machine he was experimenting with. Of course, it started to cry. With a wince, she gingerly took it out of his hands, gently turning it right side up. The scream made her ears ring... Fuck. Maybe this was going to be harder than she thought. "Um... I gu-guess yo-you're not sssupposed to t-t-turn it... upside down..." So that was one clear boundary they'd found so far together, she supposed. So far, it just seemed like a fluffy baby with a mechanical cry. What was she supposed to do with this thing...? She didn't have many experiences with actual babies, and she was an only child in her family, so it wasn't like she'd ever had a younger sibling... aghhh. What was she getting into?

Evelyn pressed it awkwardly against her chest and started to bounce it gently up and down, just hoping it'd shut up. The scream was right in her ear now.



Ah, and there was her baby daddy. And what an impression he made. As soon as he flicked the bear's nose, it broke into a whirring, ear-ringing mechanical scream. She shifted the bear into her other arm, giving the boy a light-hearted 'tut-tut.' Bored already? That wasn't showing any spirit, but she supposed she was glad she hadn't found an over-eager child. Jane, the poor mother she was, didn't care about her poor yet unnamed child's safety to that degree, but their rewarding journey as young teen parents had just started. "Not excited to be a new father?" she said with a thin smile. "What's the fun just blowing it up? We might as well kill it with style, so let's save the fireworks for later." She poked his nose, the same way he'd poked their bear. "You're Cayden, then? Pleasure to meet you."

Danni was rather mortified about the project, as he had been bright red all morning. It would be awkward if he got paired with a girl, and even more so if he was paired with a guy. He went over to his desk, seeing the bear with its dusty brown fur that matched his hair color.

Name: ______
Fur: Dusty brown
Mother: N/A
Father: Daniel Phillip Jones


"I'm working alone?" he wondered, placing a hand on the toy's head. He glanced at the board, and, sure enough, he wasn't listed with a partner.
"I work better by myself anyway." Taking a pen he had happened to have in his hand, he thought for a moment before writing a name.

Name: _Jai__
Fur: Dusty brown
Mother: N/A
Father: Daniel Phillip Jones


The bear began to make a noise that would turn into crying, but he carefully picked it up, as he had once done with his little sister. In fact, the toy was named after the girl. He started moving slightly so that there was a bit of motion, and it became quiet again. The boy glanced at another group, who were obviously having trouble with their screaming bear.

He approached them, despite the fact that his own began to fuss because of the noise. "Keep a gentle rocking motion. Sometimes humming or something helps, too. You might want to try and supped the head if you can."

Teddy what? Jake sat at his desk bewildered. Who would he be paired with? He almost didn't want to go to the board and look. Please, please let it be someone decent. The tall student walked to the board where some other people were gathered. Jake - Tabitha. Did he even know this girl? Walking back to his desk, a bear had appeared and was sitting there, a smug smile across it's face.

Name:________
Fur: Dusty brown
Mother: Tabitha Weiss
Father: Jake Baxter

Wow, they even had to come up with names. Jake gave a sigh, looking around. Tabitha... Tabitha... he wondered who this mystery girl was. Wait! Maybe he did know her after all! Wasn't this the girl that pretended to be Jane's twin at the formal? At least that narrowed the chance of finding down. Now he just needed to find someone that looked like Jane.



This whole idea is fucked up. She had enough things on her plate and now she had to raise a stuffed animal with this Connor dude? She gave a sigh. He better be one hell of a dad, for she had no intentions of raising a bear or kids, ever. She didn't need kids dragging her down, she was gonna live a free spirit for as long as she could. At least this was only a "mock" trial with a stuffed bear. But she couldn't afford to fail! Guess I'll try my best, even if it means going along with the shit this school does.

She picked up the piece of paper from her desk and examined it. What was a good bear name? Sitting at her desk, she drowned out the bustling classroom and thought of names. Charles! But what if the guy she was paired with disliked the name? Screw it. Maria wrote Charles on the paper in cursive. Looks pretty official, if I do say so myself. She gave a small grin.

Name: Charles
Fur: Golden Blond
Mother: Maria Rylen
Father: Connor Delvin

Kasumi nervously stepped into her new health class, this being her first say officially taking classes. The younger among the students, she knew she was easily unseen. It would probably be for the better, to not be noticed. Class started soon after she'd taken a seat near the back, and she carefully pulled out a notebook and a small pencil pouch, ready to take notes. However, the teacher began announcing a project as soon as class started. The shy initiate's heart pounded in fear at the words. A project? On her first day? Perhaps she'd be excused, being so new. How would she be able to handle a project? As she listened more about this particular project... Kasumi groaned, and slumped back in her chair as the teacher continued on about the responsibilities of parenthood, and how the teddy bear they were getting would...EXPLODE?!?!?!?!

Kasumi jolted upright, her heart pounding. What was with this school? Was that even legal, exploding teddy bears? She saw that everyone was taking things differently, some downright cheerful, and some who were fuming angry as they apstared at pieces of other in there hands. Most seemed shocked, worried, and scared, however, just like herself. Kasumi allowed herself a small sigh of relief after that, and gulped as the teacher approached her. A teddy bear was put on her table, and a slip of paper. Slowly, as if afraid the bear would explode any second, Kasumi took the paper, and read it.

Name: _________
Fur Color: Ochre
Father: Chip Dalton
Mother: Kasumi Matsuyama


Kasumi stared around the room, wondering who Chip Dalton was. Being new, she recognized no one, and in the end just spent the time staring around wildly as the bear began to make sniffling noises. Nope, things were definitely not up to a good start. Hopefully she could find this Chip character fast, and maybe he'd know a thing or two about exploding teddy bears.

She didn't like this.. She didn't like this project one bit. She didn't want to do this.. She didn't want the responsibility. Why did they have to do this? She let out a small groan. She didn't sign up to learn to be a parent, she signed up to learn how to control her gift. Yeah she may mess around sometimes, but it's not like she was going to get pregnant anytime soon.. She didn't even want a child for fear that they would receive the same curse she had. She shook her head, and appeared like she was alright with this whole thing. She hoped she would get a partner that she at least knew, and much to her relief she did.

She looked up at Matthew as he approached her with a bear in hand, and certificate as well. She gave him a small smile. "Well I'm gald it was you instead of someone I didn't know." She shifted in her seat slightly, afraid to take the bear from him. What if she accidentally disintegrated it? Oh god she didn't think she could live that down if it happened. "So what should we name him or her?" She asked.

Chip frowned as he stared as his paper, cheeks puffed out in confusion. The shota glanced around the room.

Name: _________
Fur Color: Ochre
Father: Chip Dalton
Mother: Kasumi Matsuyama

Kasumi? As uncomfortable as he was searching in people's profiles, the blond didn't want to be awkwardly running around asking people if they knew who Kasumi was. Thus he let his thoughts slip into her application just enough to know what she looked like. Once he was certain, the short boy stood from his desk and scanned the room. Once he spotted her through the students milling about, Chip began making his way through the crowd, paper in hand.

The blond wasn't sure how he felt about this project. Most likely, he assumed that it would be very awkward. Married to someone he didn't really know? Sounds like a season of the bachelor. But with children...or teddy bears. The blond's cheeks deflated at the thought. He couldn't take this seriously. It was a stuffed animal. He felt like a dork at the thought of cradling a teddy bear.

One of the bears began to wail, causing him to flinch. Was he going to be woken up in the middle of the night with this? If so, it was going to be a long project...

Blue eyes looked up at Kasumi. The girl was a good three inches taller than Chip. Which wasn't bad considering the height of a majority of the students. He'd count that as a win. That being said, Chip was one of the shortest people in the school. Possibly the shortest. He had a slightly round face which made him look like a kid. When in reality he was much older than what he looked like.

"You're Kasumi, right?" He knew thanks to his power, but wanted to make conversation just in case he freaked her out. A friendly smile crossed his face as he folded his hands in front of himself and slightly tilted his head. "I'm Chip."

Harrison had prepared himself for another boring day of studying and work which was no big deal for him since he was great at academics. His mood had then turned from bored to delight as he heard what the bears on the desk were suposed to be use for. It was not the fact that you may get paired off with someone that made him happy but the fact that if you mistreat the bear and it dies it will explode. 'Who thought 'Hey what should we use to motivate them. I know make it explode' whoever that was did good job.' Harrison had chuckled as he leaned back against his chair. Picking up the slip of paper that was near the bear he had read about the bear that they were suposed to take care of.

Name: ______
Fur: Grey
Mother: Rebecca Finch
Father: Harrison Hammond

"So we have to come up with the name ourselves." Harrison had then looked around for the person named Rebecca. After looking around he had spotted a blue haired girl with a card that had looked identical to his. Spoting the person he was paired as he picked up the bear and had placed it between his arms like a cradle. "Hi there I suppose your my partner for this." Putting on his fake smile he had shown her the piece of paper that he had gotten. 'I thought the colour of the bear was suposed to  be a mix. Why is the bear not light blue? Tsck, why is her hair blue.' Tired of standing up Harrison had placed the teddy bear on her desk and went to go grab his own chair. After a few seconds of moving the chair he had sat down and faced Rebecca. "Got any idea for a name?" 'You better be taking this seriously.' He had kept his smile and nice tone while he had been talking but that did not mean he was going to allow someone to just tank his grades.

Kasumi glanced over at a boy with blue eyes and blond hair. He was shorter than her, surprisingly, since Kasumi was part of the younger population of the school. He asked if she was Kasumi, and, for a second, the poor teen had no idea what to do. Kasumi had never done well around strangers, and this was no exception. She fumbled around for her tongue and gave up, instead nodding slowly. As he announced his name, Kasumi realized he was her "husband" for the next month. Oh no...

Finally finding her tongue, the awkward girl managed to say, "Uh, nice to meet you Chip, y-yeah, I'm Kasumi..." Kasumi then proceeded to stand there awkwardly, doing nothing for an embarrassingly long amount of time. Then, that was when the bear on her desk began wailing its head off, causing Kasumi to jump into the air in surprise. "A-ah!" Kasumi turned this way and that, trying to find something to stop it, beginning to panic. This was the type of situation she hated, ones that were just too awkward and usually ended disastrously. She would honestly rather go into her dorm room and read a book.

Slowly, Kasumi's experience with dealing with her brothers when they were younger kicked in, and she began to dig in a supply box for a pacifier. "Um, Chip, this, uh, could you help me find a pacifier?" she mumbled, setting aside a bib and a bottle.

"Pft." Jonathan held in a broken laugh as Liam's face contorted at the absurdity of their conversation. How did they end up here? They were parents to this thing, which would determine their grade in this class. This bright pink thing, that one look around the class confirmed, was the most ridiculously coloured one of them all. The lone pink in a sea of browns and caramels. And from Liam's rough handling of the bub, he was a little concerned that he'd end up the primary carer in this relationship. Was it too late to leg it? Probably.

"Oi." He smacked Liam's hand away when he noticed the bear start whirring. But it was too late. There was an anticipatory second of silence before it burst into an jarring shriek, joining a chorus of other bear bubs, except it was worse when you were standing less than a metre away.

"Fu- far out." He quickly censored himself, picking it up in his arm and placed it on the jut of his rather narrow hip. Jonathan was just as lost when it came to child rearing, but he emulated what he'd seen in movies. He bounced it gently until it settled down, sparing them from further torment. "Be nice to our daughter, Daddy dear." He said sugary sweetly to avoid another outburst while stroking the bear, though he was personally feeling a little dizzy from the noise. Maybe he'd come out of the infirmary a little too soon.


The screaming was expected, but fuck, it was loud. For a rather smallish plush toy, it had an impressive set of speakers, the school hadn't spared any expenses it seemed. But it wasn't exactly endearing him to the idea of raising this thing for the month, setting it prematurely on fire seemed far more tempting. It's not like health was really a class of any importance, he took it since it was an easy A.

He wrinkled his nose when Jane poked him, but let it go, no need to antagonise his partner for the next month. Instead, he reached over to pluck the banshee from her arms, ignoring any protest. "Here, let me hold the little bastard." He held it in his hands firmly, tossing it up and down lightly till it calmed down it's wailing into quiet hiccups. Ah, it was nice to be able to hear things again. Then before long it went silence, which was naturally when he stuffed it back into her arms. Mothers were meant to be nurturing ones. "And you're Jane. Don't judge me, you look as thrilled as I feel about Bear McBearson here. In a week, you'll be regretting your choice. Anyway, since you've kindly opted for us to attempt to parent this thing for a month, I'd say division of labor should be 70% 30%, you're clearly the more attached party here."

Erin hadn't even bothered looking at the board or around the room as she walked in and tossed her bags to the ground, taking her seat. She had heard something about some kind of school-wide project but she hoped that she wouldn't have to get involved. It sounded stupid and it took up time she could use for other things. She sat down and placed her head on the desk, listening around the room as people walked in and started making comments about teddy bears and pairs. Ultimately confused, she lifted her head causing her hair to go wild around her face, looking around to see several teddy bears in an array of colors filling the room on peoples' desks. "What?" she commented before she saw Gabriel walking towards her with a bear in his hands. It was a pretty golden blonde color, but she partially dreaded what this had in store. When he stopped and held it out to her with and told her they were paired up, though, she felt a little bit better. At least it was with someone she knew. With a smile, Erin laughed with him. "Oh, goody!" she said before her expression shifted to confusion. "What are we supposed to do with it?" If they had to do what she thought they had to do, that poor bear was in trouble.



Larissa was just expecting another normal day. Well, as normal as Beata could get. So far, her life here has been filled with almost fight after almost fight with an actual fight thrown in every once in a while. Everyone here seemed so dangerous which is why she hated it. Sure, she could be dangerous, but that wasn't the point. Silently, she walked into the room, stopping dead in her tracks as she noticed all of the teddy bears sitting around the room with people already oohing and awing over them while talking about names and pairing up. What was going on here? Trying to avoid everyone's attention, the summer moved around the edge of the classroom and to her seat. Dreadfully, she saw a bear sitting on her desk with a piece of paper sitting under it. It was a chocolate brown bear--nothing special, but when she picked it up, she glanced at the paper underneath with neat words written on it.

Name: __________
Fur: Brown
Mother: Larissa Wicker
Father: Conrad Althaus


What? Who was Conrad? Instantly, Larissa began to panic. She didn't want to be paired up with someone she didn't know. What was she supposed to do, or say for that matter? "Oh hey we have a bear together! Who are you?" That sounded stupid... Looking up from her bear, she glanced nervously around the room, trying to find anyone that could look like a Conrad. She really didn't want to do this, but she needed to find the father of her bear. Taking a few steps towards the center of the room, she continued to shift her gaze from person to person. "C-Conrad?" she called out, hoping it wasn't someone she'd already seen before at one of the fights.
