electrified, we burn all night.

Sometimes, you had to do what you had to do. Today was certainly one of those days, where Nausicaa had been pushing herself too hard to get too much done. There were tests to do, paperwork to fill out, papers to write, and data to collect. There always was, really, but it wasn’t like it was too much to handle. Nausicaa was known for overdoing it and planning too much in a small amount of time. She was known for getting involved in almost everything she could, as long as it would benefit her education. With one degree already under her belt, and grad school underway, it was impressive she could manage much of anything else in any possible moments of spare time. Did she have any spare time at all? Honestly, it was hard to tell.

She couldn’t remember the last time she ate, not exactly, but she was certain it hadn’t been that long ago. Lunchtime, perhaps? There were always snacks in the lab as well (although they were hidden during inspections), so it wasn’t like she completely ignored her body. If she needed to use the restroom, she would go. If she was starving, she’d find a snack. And if she was tired, well, she’d need to find a place to rest.

There was, at the current moment, an issue with the fact that she was exhausted. Nausicaa had stayed up far too late the previous night, and was definitely in need of a good little nap. But the issue? She was in the middle of a test. A plant was being filmed under certain conditions, and across the room she had blood cells being impacted by a new medicine… So she couldn’t ignore it. She had to be ready to focus on her work and make sure everything was being done correctly- the only issue was she was so tired. If only the redhead had slept before instead of staying awake until 3 in the morning? But she had to finish up the paper since it was due at 9 am.. Oh well. Sooner or later she would make better choices, but today was not that day. Such was life, wasn’t it? At least she was learning and doing what truly made her happy.

Everything seemed fine, really, and nothing was going wrong with the tests. So Nausicaa made the decision- go get sleep. There were plenty of places to take a nap, but inside of the lab wasn’t one of them. Not only would someone looking in be worried, but there were other students doing work on things as well. So, she’d have to find somewhere else. And that would be one of the empty classrooms just down the hallway. Easy enough, right? Moving along, she opened the door to the first room, the lights turning on as she entered. It seemed empty, as far as she could tell. ”Hello?” she spoke, just to be sure, ”Anyone in here?” if so, they weren’t doing a very good job at making themselves easy to notice.

Somedays there was nothing more satisfying to Rowan than sneaking off into an empty classroom for some downtime. Sure, the young redhead enjoyed being in and amongst her classmates. Yet, every now and again it was just as nice to disappear for a little while. Especially when she couldn't just walk herself home since she had another class in an hour or so. The perfect opportunity to have a little time to herself as she packed up from the class until she was needed. Besides, it wasn't like her classmates would miss her all that much. Fact, she was fairly certain that quite a few would be happier without her. Even after a few weeks together, she still couldn't help feeling like the new student. Was it always this difficult for new students? Certainly, back home in Nome, it hadn't been this difficult to make friends. Mind you she had only been five at the time, but did age really make it that much more difficult?

Apparently, the answer was yes as she shouldered her bag and headed out of the room. Making her way through several hallways checking classrooms to find one that was empty. Being quiet so as not to disturb any classes that may be going on. Finding one of the room doors unlocked and carefully checked to see if anyone was around. With nobody to bother her, she disappeared inside and made herself comfortable after turning the lights on. Closing the door quietly behind her as she made herself at home in the deserted room. Taking her jacket off and settling down in one of the chairs. Taking her books out so she could study today's lesson plans to be better prepared. A decision that proved to be a bad decision when after only a few minutes she was drifting in and out of sleep. Sighing as she closed her book realizing that she wasn't going to get anything done like that. Checking her phone to see she had an hour and a half before class.

Rubbing her hand over her face, she decided that maybe a small nap wouldn't hurt. Goodness knows she had needed it being up late yesterday. Reluctantly, she grabbed her phone switching it to flashlight as she crossed over to the light switch. Turning the lights off so she wouldn't be as likely to be disturbed. Making her way back to her seat where she set an alarm that would give her plenty of time to nap and make it to class on time. With that in mind, she turned off the flashlight and got herself settled best she could in the chair before attempting to get some well-earned rest. Closing her eyes and letting herself slowly ease into a peaceful sleep dreaming about Jenna and the wolf-dog she'd encountered. Sighing contently as she lay her head on the desk in front of her.

***
She didn't know how long she ended up sleeping there in the darkness of her hiding place. Only that when next she woke was to the lights flooding the room. Blinking groggily against the blinding brightness as she attempted to sit up. Grumbling as she felt her body protesting the unusual sleeping position. Rubbing her eyes as she heard a voice calling out. Seems she wasn't the only one looking for some peace and quiet.

"Just me and the classroom ghost," murmured Rowan loud enough to be heard as she straightened up.

Turning her head to see who was coming into the classroom as she glanced at her phone. Well, at least she managed to get about thirty minutes...not nearly as satisfying as it could have been though. Turning the alarm off since she figured she wasn't as likely to go back to sleep now. Feeling the beginning of a headache coming on though she tried to push it away. Running fingers through her long red hair as she made a note to herself to have a shower later that evening.

"I'm Rowan by the way. Veterinary science student" commented Rowan figuring she may as well introduce herself.

electrified, we burn all night.

Naus knew, she definitely knew, that she was close to a breakthrough. Close to figuring out something big with plants and nature and all of that crazy stuff she was interested in. Would it be a big deal? Maybe not, but it would be to her. Each and every day Nausicaa was learning new things about plants and how they worked, even if they were things others had found before. Just because she was confirming the results that others learned didn’t mean what she was doing wasn’t important. That was something she had learned over time- while at first it was easy to be disappointed to know you weren’t the first one to find something, that you might not ever discover anything new at all. Nausicaa didn’t agree with that, not one bit. She wanted to be the one to change the world- and now she understood just how impossible that might be. So now she had learned and come to terms with it all. No matter what, she would be making a change on the world, even if it wasn’t the earth shattering one she wanted it to be. For now, she would just make the changes and keep on researching.

Just one more piece of paperwork, she thought, yawning once again. No, she couldn’t. She needed to go rest otherwise her work would suffer, and that was almost worse than making a discovery. No way did Nausicaa want to make some sort of mistake that she couldn’t recreate, or one that could change things for the worst. So she had to take a break, let her thoughts rest. That was just… A bit hard. Even while resting her thoughts were often rushing with different ideas and formulas and all sorts of other things. She wanted to do so much- why was life so short? There was not nearly enough time to do so much and really change the world. No wonder things were the same for such a long period of time!

She was lucky that her building didn’t have too many classes throughout the day- at least the rooms near the labs. It was almost as if the school was planning on students overworking themselves time and time again. It wouldn’t surprise Naus, not at this point in her life. The redhead just wanted to get work done and not have to worry about anything else. Why couldn’t she just eat through absorbing sunlight like plants could? That would’ve just made everything so much easier to deal with. Oh well. Maybe she’d just have to shift her research in that direction! It’d certainly be interesting to learn about, even if it had nothing to do with toxins and medicine and more. Just a fun side project? The thought brought a smile to her face. There was no way she had time to add something else into the madness of her life, so she’d just have to wait.

Why were the lights so bright? The ones in the room were almost enough to wake her back up, but the thoughts of sleep were still just a bit too heavy. She frowned as she spotted the other girl in the room, ”Oh shoot- sorry the lights went on. I didn’t mean to wake you up.” it was clear from her position on the desk that she was sleeping too. It was a common part of being in college, just trying to sleep whenever and wherever you could. Sometimes a nap was required if you didn’t want to fall asleep in your lecture class, or if you wanted to just know what was going on. Far too often Naus would zone out in her early years- hence why she listened when she needed to sleep now.

The redhead took a step into the room, closing the door behind her slowly, ”Nausicaa, grad student.” she smiled a bit, ”Nice to meet you, Rowan.”

Even with the prospect of a headache coming, Rowan was still polite as she turned to face the other girl. A gentle smile on her face as she saw the other attempt to apologize for waking her. Waving it off as she supposed in hindsight she really shouldn't have been making use of an abandoned room like this. Rubbing her eyes a little more as she tried to adjust to the overly bright lights overhead now. Why couldn't they have a dimmer switch? Was that so hard to ask for? Apparently so as she sighed gently glad at least that she had gotten some sleep even if it wasn't nearly enough for her.

"It's fine...I probably should be up preparing for my next lesson anyways," commented Rowan politely.

Stretching herself out as best as she could, wincing a little at the tingling feeling of her body falling asleep on her. Attempting to gain some feeling back in her limbs again. Her back and neck were a little sore from the unusual position, but she figured it would go away with time. If not, well she would see about getting herself some time to have a bath back at home. Which wouldn't be for a while yet as she started rummaging through her bag. Certain that she had packed some sort of snack for herself in there. A granola bar, an apple, a banana...anythng to help wake her up a little. Hearing the other girl slowly making her way into the room now as she relaxed a little more. Glad at least that it wasn't a teacher scolding her about the impromptu use of a classroom. Suspecting that the other girl had come in here for some quiet as well or maybe a nap herself.

Listening to her as she explained that her name was Naus...Nausic...Nausicaa. Okay, that was a rather strange and unusual name to Rowan as she looked at the redhead. Giving up her search of the bag as it appeared that she'd already eaten her emergency snack. Not that she minded the strange and unusual as quite honestly it was probably the best. Something about this place seemed so strange, but then again who ever heard of a portal taking you to another world? Hearing the click of the door being closed behind the redhead as she came into the room properly now. Only just registering that she was a grad student which was news to Rowan who was only really just starting her studies. Smiling a little more as she felt the presence of the other putting her more at ease.

"Guess I'm not the only one looking for an escape," she said with a gentle laugh.

Gesturing for the other girl to take a seat by her if she so wished to do so. Moving her stuff out of the chair next to her and onto the table away from herself. Hearing her stomach growl though she tried her best to ignore it as much as she could. Not exactly the easiest thing to do mind you. Her hair starting to fall back into her face as she tried to push it behind her back. Oh, the joys of having long hair. Shaking her thoughts from her mind so that she could at least focus on the other girl. After all, it wasn't often any of the other girls paid her much attention. Not for a lack of trying so she wanted to be on her best behavior.

"So Naus..Nausica..Nausicaa...that's an unusual name. Does it mean anything? I mean it's pretty...just different...not that there's anything wrong with different. I like different a lot," replied Rosy fumbling over her words making her blush and drop her head. That wasn't exactly what she had in mind when she opened her mouth. Now the girl was probably going to think she was making fun of her when she wasn't. 'Good job, Row...that will really impress her,' thought Rowan to herself.
