"Today," Hannibal said once everybody had arrived, "we are going to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. That is the capital city in a country far to the east of here. The Mongolian people come from a nomadic tradition, and much of their cuisine is meat- and dairy-based. There are also a number of influences from neighboring traditions."

He led them through the portal and onto a fairly ordinary-looking street across from, of all things, a mall. "Our restaurant for the day will be Modern Nomads." There was a coffee shop across from this one, too. At least it wasn't an American chain? "You will find many traditional foods here, from bone soup to noodle dishes. Lamb is a popular meat."

He led them into the restaurant. "They use local meats and ingredients, and also include plenty of greens for those of you who might prefer not to eat so much meat. I'll be getting several of the sharing plates for the table. The local language is Mongolian, but many will also speak some English. Or," he added with a nod to Kaylin, "Chinese."

They were brought to their table, and he gestured for them to be seated. "Please enjoy, and as always, let me know if you have any questions."

Today was International Chess Day and Luke's had a surprising number of people inside with chessboards all set up to play. There was also a large garden chess set set up in the middle of the restaurant for kids to play with. Hardison, who was still brooding over the weekend more than was probably healthy, was only too glad to nod at a wizened old Latino man and join him at his table for a game or two. Getting his ass whupped by a secret chess ninja was a good way to take his mind off of imagining what had happened to Noah.

It was also a fun way to annoy the hell out of Sterling, because of course Hardison was texting Olivia and then telling Sterling about their conversation.

*Angry chittering*

Yeah, yeah, I'm late, I know. Sorry, yo, them weird weekends always screw up my sense of time. Spent all day yesterday thinkin' it was Tuesday. But it was Wednesday, an' here's everythin' that happened yesterday.

School started off with Fightin' an' Fabulosity got to go to the mall an' pick out clothes that were cute an' capable of concealing weapons. Man, that sounds like a class Sophie would teach, too. Also, my apologies for folks out there wearin' clothes designed for ladies an' think that pockets are for chumps. Healin' Power of Crystals had a rant from Deadpool about folks not takin' his class seriously. This bein' the same class he bough fifty cent crystals for. Go figure. Magic of Plants was temporarily turned into Magic of Puppies for the day, an' Zack stopped by to chat with Karla. Over in the Library, the books were puttin' on a literal three-ring circus, but Peridot didn't pay any attention at all.

Dorms had an upset Ada from the weekend, but Isabela showed up to help comfort her an' I ain't lookin' at anythin' you squirrels are doin', dammit. Ain't my business.

In Town, Groovy Tunes was tryna drive Lucille mad with terrible music. Covent Gardens is debatin' carryin' "sorry I turned into somethin' weird" bouquets, an' Ino was back in uniform at Pick Your Poison, with Lucille comin' in to see what exactly was bein' sold.

That's it for notes an' that's it for me! Have a good week y'all!

This week Magnus had discovered action movies. So, sorry kids. That was possibly just as awesome to him as Starbucks had been.

"I found this movie and it's just like battle-wagon racing. I mean, no magic, but still pretty sweet," Magnus said, bouncing on his toes excitedly. "So, keep this in mind for next week when we start tricking out our battle-wagons, kay?"

Yes, kids. It was a movie day.

Once more into the breach Danger Shop, kids.

"So you're passably good at fighting bunnies." You didn't need to sound so amused about that, Cara. "But you clearly need to practice your sword and shield work."

She held up a shield. "To recap, you block with this." Then a sword. "And stab with this. If you have any questions, this is Cassandra's area of expertise."

Though they might want to ask them quickly since there was the unmistakable sound of bears approaching.

The stereo was still behaving itself for Octavia. Not that random visitors to the store were likely to assume that it was: her somber, leather-clad figure walking around the store seemed to be at odds with the joyful showtunes the stereo was belting out.

But she'd missed out on music all her life. That included damn near all music. So for now, she was content to be grabbing CDs from the shelves at random and seeing what they contained. No prejudice.

She was also taking a closer look at some of the instruments being sold at the store, today. Trying to guess at what they sounded like and how they were supposed to be played.

She probably needed to think about getting a phone. So she could Google these things.

After two and a half solid days of working on his cart, the Merchant of Miracles felt pretty good hobbling walking into the store on Thursday; his little shoulders were thrown back and his little chest puffed out with pride. "You should see it, Nahasapeemapedilon!" he said. "I did a realy find job, if I do say so myself! Better than ever! Better than before! Maybe I should thank that Scaramouche guy for giving me the opportunity to do a much needed overhaul on that piece of junk. You should see it! Prettiest cart you've ever seen!"

It should be noted that it looked exactly the same as before. The Merchant just added some cheap gold trim.

"And, lemme tell ya, it was so nice to get a good night's sleep, too. Can't get a wink in that stable with those unicorns. The Other One snores."

An accusation strong enough to make the Other One snort in irritation, because it definitely wasn't him that was doing the snoring, thank you very much.

There were still a few apology bouquets going out today, although not nearly as many as Nathan's notes showed had gone out yesterday. Peter himself had spent the weekend handwavily as a very confused doctor-turned-pirate-turned-governor, and as far as he knew hadn't actually bothered anyone, but he was beginning to wonder if this was a usual thing.

So, he was taking time out today to troll through all the catalogues he had, looking to see what sorts of "Sorry I turned into x" bouquets were available.

There were actually several worlds that had them in stock. He couldn't decided if that was worrying or comforting.

The Danger Shop was a mall today: a mall that was all clothing stores in a vast array of styles. And class was meeting by an escalator, where Isabelle was standing next to a table. On the table were items that the students were going to find familiar.

"Everyone, pick up the weapons from our first class together," Isabelle said, gesturing at the weapons in question. "Today, we're going shopping."

Spoken like someone who loved shopping, and expected them to feel the same.

"Specifically, you're all going go around the mall and assemble outfits that are both stylis and also convenient for concealing whatever weapon you picked. And ––" She held up a finger. "–– before anyone complains about this putting some of you at a disadvantage because your weapons may be harder to conceal... Tough. That's part of the lesson." And she wasn't saying that unkindly. It genuinely was part of the lesson. "Sometimes you have to work around disadvantages, because life is not fair, and it's even less so when it comes to any meaningful form of fighting. So, best learn to live with it."

She'd been serious for a second there.

So, time for a smirk: "Now, off you go. Shop!"

No, I had a perfectly normal weekend.

*disappointed chitters*

Yeah, that's not making feel any worse about whatever it was skipping me.

There were classes up at the School, where Archaeology sorted valuable garbage from junk, and Try Not to Die went to a desert in Namibia, but apparently it's too hard if there are dragons and bears. Khadgar read about alternate dimensions in the Library.


Once more, the Dorms were pretty quiet, and in Town, Lucille and Peridot were on the beach, talking about umbrellas and robot ducks, as you do. Miracle Guy stayed home 'repairing his cart'. Summer cleaned at Needful Things, the music was complaint worthy at Groovy Tunes, Taako realised the futility of looking for an invisible umbrella at Fantasy CostCo, Nathan sent apology notes to people who wanted bouquets from Covent Gardens, Zack had to deal with singing frogs at Furnado, the stock rooms were misbehaving at the Post Office, and Hannibal cooked and served for two students' date. Which isn't at all creepy.

She was back in her usual suit today, which was a marked improvement over last week. It wasn't that Ino didn't like dressing up (she did!) but that she'd gotten so used to wearing the uniform that not wearing it was a little like being underdressed.

After checking on her current stock and putting more out, Ino puttered around at the front counter, working through notebooks and keeping track of which formulas were selling, which weren't, and which might be interesting to try next.

There were a couple of special orders that had come in, which pleased her, but she'd start dealing with them after the store had closed for the day.

 As if yesterday hadn't been enough, Lucille had to endure an excruciatingly painful music all day. Electric guitars. How could they be made to sound both beautiful and as if someone was killing a cat. The stereo had also chosen a volume that was very nearly driving Lucille mad.

She actually went looking for the silence.

"So it seems like some people--" Deadpool paused to give Ahsoka and Khadgar a look. "--are making this class difficult and ruining it for everyone."

Mostly him.

"Mostly me. You think this is a real class? You think I show up for any other reason than that I get money and to make this one mad?" he demanded, jabbing a finger in Xanthippe's direction. "'Cause I don't. I'm not here to Good Will Hunting or Dead Poet Society you. I'm barely here to Night at the Museum you!"

He dropped one of those paperweight geodes on the ground at the front of the class, looking disappointed when it didn't shatter.

"Okay, that was supposed to be a dramatic mic drop, but it didn't work out. Just like life doesn't work out. But I'm going to leave you all here to think--really think about what you've done. And be ashamed of yourselves." Deadpool shook his head at the lot of them before gathering together what might have just been blank sheets of paper on his desk before walking out.

Then, after a moment, popped his head back into the classroom.

"Ashamed."

And then was gone.

Peridot was in a good mood today.

Like a really, really good mood.

There was humming involved, even, as she kicked back in her chair behind the desk and committed herself to reading through a book about metals on Earth and their multiple uses. She was so absorbed in it, in fact, that she either didn't notice or didn't care about the three-ring circus that the books were putting on, complete with tightrope and flying trapeze.

Puppies!

There were four roly-poly puppies with Karla today, looking very solemn and trying to sit very still, even though their little noses were twitching like crazy taking in all these new scents. "Hello!" Karla greeted the class, making no mention of the four puppy-sized balls of floof by her feet. "Today we're going to learn to make essential oils from plants. Essential oils are basically the building blocks of anything with fragrance, from perfumes to scented candles to lotions and creams. Various types of essential oils have different uses; a few drops of clove and rosemary oils in a diffuser can make your home smell lovely, while several drops of lemongrass oil can keep mosquitos away, and just lemon oil is a natural cleanser. Essential oils made from even just one plant can have multiple uses. Lavender, for example, is said to be a calming scent, and can be added to teas to act as a stomach soother, and can help with insomnia. Because it's such a multipurpose oil, today we're going to learn how to make lavender essential oils, though this method can be used with any scented plant you have access to."

There were multiple homemade distilleries set up, one for each student, and at each station was a large armload of dried lavender plants. The distilleries were made up of pressure cookers, rubber tubing, a bucket of ice, and an essencier. "If you finish in an hour, you can make bath salts," Karla continued, pointing to her desk where yet more items were piled. "And, if you finish that, too..." One of the puppies managed to fall over. From a sitting position, yes. Karla knelt and scooped him up. "If you finish making the oils and the bath salts and there's still time? There are puppies to play with."

So, this weekend had been very strange, and Khadgar was just grateful he hadn't embarrassed himself too badly. Now, he was looking through books on alternate dimensions for fun, although he'd been surprised by how small Fandom's collection on the subject was, all things considered. The books were blissfully quiet, and he hoped they stayed that way.

The class were once again in the Danger Shop, in front an a very impressive looking, very old vault door.

"So one thing they don't really tell you about archaeology is that you need an eye for detail, since sometimes the only difference between a significant find and a bunch of junk is that the first is really, really old junk. It can take years to learn how to tell valuable junk from the rest of the garbage." There were a great many reasons she'd gotten into focusing on droids and weapons, and only most of them involved credits. "But since I'm awesome, instead of picking through trash, I'm gonna go have you try and find specific items from this vault here, because hey, even when it's all valuable some loot's better than others. But there's a time limit, so look fast."

Also people were going to start shooting at them halfway through, but Aphra figured she'd let that be a surprise. Keep them on their toes.
