Ichigo and his group had just been sorted into this 'gryffindor' house. All the students were currently staring at the four of them, it was starting to become a bit awkward.
Saber though, just ignored it all. There was food placed infront of, magically refilling food.
Through elegance that couldn't even be described, she made plate after plate disappear. At first all the students wanted to hound them with questions…..until they noticed her bottomless stomach. It became more absurd the longer it went on. Ichigo, Shirou, and Rukia could barely stomach the British food. It was full of sugar and other additives, yet saber didn't even stop long enough to chew.
The poor house elfs in the kitchen had no idea what was happening, they were the ones who prepared all the food and it was disappearing as if a troll had entered the hall and started eating.
Saber eventually became saddened when her magic plates stopped replenishing.
"Are you done?" Ichigo asked in amazement.
"I'm about half full" She said reluctantly.
He words were heard all around her, eyes widening to her claim.
"I do not envy you…." Ichigo said, looking over to Shirou.
The group were interrupted when one of the girls at the table walked over.
"Um...hello" She said.
"Hello" Rukia greeted back.
"Do you mind if I sit here?" She said, pointing to a seat next to Rukia.
"Sure" Rukia responded.
"Your English is very good." The girl said towards Rukia.
"Thank you miss…..?" Rukia answered.
"Oh sorry, my name is Hermione Granger" Hermione introduced herself.
"Nice to meet you, I'm Rukia Kuchiki" Rukia responded in kind.
The group all around introduced themselves to the girl.
"If I may...are you really King Arthur..?" Hermione asked hesitantly.
"Yes." Saber replied bluntly.
"That's.....hard to believe " Hermione responded.
"I'm aware." Saber again replied bluntly.
"I thought that King Arthur was a male." Hermione probed again.
"I hid my gender, those times were not good for females." Saber said emotionlessly.
Before Saber could get a word in, Hermione unloaded question after question onto the petite blonde.
"Merlin helped me hide my gender, and my knights knew about me being female. Gwen knew I was female and we had a fake marriage to hide everything. Mordred was a homunculus, she was born from my DNA, I did not give birth." She said, a bit annoyed at the questioning.
Various ears were perking up to her conversation. Reporters were writing, and the ministry employees were whispering to each other.
"Are you done prying into her personal history?" Ichigo asked the annoying girl.
Hermione was a bit taken back with his attitude, she was just trying to figure out everything that happened.
"Everyone has a right to know what happened." She said with a righteous expression.
"Does everyone have the right to know why you think you can demand answers from someone you don't even know?" Ichigo responded.
"You are a very rude person" She snapped back.
"Very well, I will try to act more like you. Would anyone at this table like to divulge their most intimate details because according to Miss Granger, we all have the right to know what happened." He said quite loudly.
Hermione got a bit flustered at his comment and stomped off.
"Was that necessary?" Rukia whispered to her lover.
Ichigo looked up to see a small smile on Saber's face.
"Yes" He answered.
As she left, another couple of boys cames over. One with red hair and another, who was a few sizes bigger.
"Hey, I'm Ron and this is Neville" The redhead introduced the duo.
"Hello" The group greeted.
"Whats with the swords?" He asked.
"What do you mean?" Ichigo responded.
"Well two of you have swords on your waist and Shirou was about to summon a bunch more or something, that was pretty wicked by the way" He said.
"Our form of combat centers around the usage of swords as you put it" Rukia answered.
"You do magic with swords?" Ron asked in astonishment.
"Not really, its hard to explain without showing" Ichigo said.
"Can you show me?" Ron asked with expectation.
"Not in a crowded place like this…." Ichigo responded with an awkward smile.
Shirou saw the expression Ichigo had and decided to intervene.
"Trace on" He said, loud enough to grab the attention of those around him.
A mundane dagger appeared in his hand.
Everyone around saw that he just performed magic without a wand to create a dagger.
"I'VE NEVER HEARD OF MAGIC LIKE THAT" Ron yelled in surprise.
"It's not magic, its magecraft" Shirou corrected.
"Whats the difference?" Ron asked.
"Magecraft can be replicated by technology, whereas in my school of thought, true magic is something that is impossible to be." He explained.
"Can you teach me?" Ron asked.
"Unfortunately I cannot" Shirou responded.
"WHY NOT?" Ron said, getting agitated. He was a bit of a hothead.
"Well for one, you don't have magic circuits." Shirou said.
"What are magic Circuits?" Ron said, calming down a bit.
Shirou didn't answer and just flared up his circuits. Several blueish green lines appeared on his arm and shoulder through his body suit.
"It's what allows someone to practice magecraft, wizards have a magical core which utilizes pra…magic differently." He explained.
The people all around were staring in awe, they had never heard of this type of magic before.
"You said that magecraft can be copied by muggles, so what makes it so special?" Ron said, he was a bit annoyed he couldn't create cool swords like this foreigner.
"A person can forge a blade, whereas I can replicate the means in seconds to produce one. Magecraft is essentially the science of magic" He responded.
"Science?" Ron asked in confusion.
Ichigo's group looked at the boy.
"what…?" They all asked. Even saber was a bit dumbfounded.
"Why are you all looking at me like that?" He asked.
"Do you not know what science is?" Ichigo asked.
"No, is it something muggle related? I don't really care about muggle stuff" He answered, getting more annoyed.
"Dear god….." Rukia answered. Even the Gotei 13 when centuries behind the living world knew about the sciences.
"Biology, Chemisty, physics…do none of these ring a bell?" Shirou asked in astonishment.
"I don't know what those are" Ron said, getting a bit more annoyed that they carried on with this 'muggle' garbage.
"I thought this was a school..." Saber spoke up this time.
"This is the best magic school in the world" Ron said proudly.
"My god, if that's true then I fear for all the wizarding societies" Ichigo said.
"Whats that supposed to mean?" Rona answered angrily.
"Forgot about it, you clearly look down on anything non-magic, I doubt anything I say would help you turn your life around" Ichigo responded.
The red head just puffed up and left in anger, his friend who hadn't spoked and only just stared daggers into Ichigo had left with him.
"Well, I think we're off to a good start." Ichigo said with a smile.
It wasn't long before everyone's attention was drawn to Jaina and her conversation with the other teachers.
Ichigo and his group were holding back their laughs as she was spouting bullshit left and right. The people were apparently believing her.
The headmaster finally had to let the students out to got to bed.
Ichigo and his group were led to the Gryffindor house. Apparently there were talking paintings in this castle and even some weird form of ghosts. They ran away In fear when Ichigo's group approached. Rukia hypothesized they could feel the aura they put off as shinigami and thought we were there to harm them.
They had to give a certain painting a password and a 'secret' room opened up to reveal the Gryffindor common room.
"Girls on the right, Guys on the left" The house head declared to the new comers with regards to where their bedrooms.
"There are words to prevent guys from going in the girl's area." He explained.
"Are there wards to prevent girls from going to the guy's area?" Rukia asked.
"Um….no?' The house head said in confusion.
Rukia and saber both looked at each other before dragging their idiots off into the male bedrooms.
The house head just stared there dumbfounded along with half the Gryffindor house.
The younger kids were sporting blushes while the older ones just gave a chuckle.
Jaina smiled at their antics as she made her way to a girl's room. Shirou and Ichigo had the foresight to silence their rooms for the night.
Short chapter to finish up the first night they had arrived. I couldn't make it longer without making it MUCH longer to finish the thought i had for the next chapter. Anyways, going to bed and will start again tomorrow.
