Ty West, one of the school Trustees, calls the Assistant Headmistress, to set up a special training team.

After his math class, Danny Franks has an encounter with Dump Truck, who has just tripped a girl into a compromising position. This time he’s got a holdout, and uses it on Dump Truck. Dump Truck screams some obscenities, and Headmistress Carson breaks it up and hauls Dump Truck to her office for a long talk. Danny helps the girl, who he’s interested in, up, but he’s pulled away by of his many admirers.

In the next class period, Kayda Franks and Elaine Nalley arrive at their class on spirits. They’re joined by a very puzzled Tansy Walcutt, who has been told to be there instead of her Topics of Current Geo-Political Situations class. Assistant Headmistress Hartford tells them they are now a training team, named the Tres Amegias. For their first mission they’re assigned a hostage rescue simulation; Kayda recognizes the layout. Marty Penn and Mrs. Turner have a long discussion.

The Tres Amegias find themselves in a sweltering jungle. Kayda discovers that there’s a subtle ward around the compound. After discussion, they decide that this is probably a trap, and they have three days to figure it out.

Adam Lambert goes to his room to pack for moving to another room. He finds his roommate, John Martin in the room. He begins to pack to move to another room. They get into it when Mr. Filbert arrives. He has a talk with John.

The Computer Specialist finds that someone else has hacked their target. Someone who is very good - he almost missed it.

- - > Dream Space

Tansy Walcutt has found that her horse, Tango, had found her way to her Dream Space, so she tries to spend some dream time every night taking her out riding. Tonight she meets someone who gives her a warning. The someone is Coyote, but she doesn’t know that. Yet.

During her radio show, The Voice of Reason, Zenith gives the latest weather advisory. It’s bad and going to get worse.

- - > Blue Ridge Mountains

Computer Expert plants the files on his target’s computer and then adjusts everything to show they were added by the owner, not by an outside influence. He watches the Trojan he’d almost missed discover the files and send a message to its master. Job well done.

- - > Whateley Academy

The Tres Amegias are back in the sims. Kayda finds a clever way of disabling the ward without sending an alarm. Elaine kills most of the outside guards, while Tansy kills the two men guarding the hostage and frees her. Well done.

At lunch (presumably) Stephen and Marty discuss the incident. Marty tells Steve some of what’s behind Eruption’s animosity toward her.

Also at lunch (presumably), Lanie and Tansy talk with Tansy’s mother about their relationship with each other and with Wyatt.

The water feed for the heating boilers goes out. The utility says it will be at least a week until they can get the feed back. The head of operations, Mr. Duncan, says to institute Plan 4. Headmistress Carson decides to move all the students to the Crystal Hall for the duration.

At the water station, the driver of the gasoline truck that exploded wonders why he’s still alive. He sees a wolf, or at least something that looks like a wolf.

The weather forecast is in the disaster zone.

(Still October 9th.)

In Lanie’s lab, she, Kayda, Tamsy are going through photographs to make a new costume for Kayda when Wyatt arrives with the weather news.

John Martin appeals to Tansy for help.

Kayda and Wyatt are slowly freezing in the Nation’s tepee, which was hardly weatherproof.

Tansy and Lanie are having a bit of lunch at the Alpha table when they hear Amelia Hartford dressing down Peeper.

- - > Wallachia

Lord Paramount’s mage tells him there is an essence component to the storm, and he can’t see through it. Lord Paramount prepares to head out.

- - > Whateley Academy

Lady Astarte is thwarted by the storm, which seems almost alive. She finally sends essence to Kayda and Wyatt through the ground.

Kayda and Wyatt talk. Coyote intervenes to create a windbreak to protect the tepee.

In Crystal Hall, Danny Franks finally gives in to Winape and shifts into his catgirl form. Dump Truck begins to harass him. Several of the FSA intervene. Headmistress Carson ends it, and issues some blood-curdling threats of what will happen to anyone who provokes a fight during the emergency.

Raven meets her perched on her tombstone, that has a year, 2008, on it.

When she gets back, she discusses it with Elizabeth Carson, who heads to her office to do some mystic work.

Headmistress Carson discusses current status with Amelia Hartford. Water is restored, classes will restart the next day. Coyote suggested that their Mythos problem was an adult posing as a student, not an actual student.

Rosalyn Dekkard gives Lanie a heads-up about Danny being outed. Then Tansy comes in with the current Atlanta Journal-Constitution showing that the Secretary of State has been arrested for possession of child porn. Revenge complete.

Brother Bruce acts on the message from Dr. Carson, and finds a chest that says it was from Laneth mac Joan. In it he finds Laneth’s diary - ten years of dated entries that are in Latin that he can read. Priceless.
