Barnes Academy - Administrative Office

The administrative offices of the various shield agents and academic administrators as well as the small army of secretaries and clerks it takes to keep a school running smoothly are connected to this module. The central module has a large counter bisecting it with various school functionaries behind the counter at work stations or manning the desk.

It is Tuesday afternoon and after having met some of the students at the Xavier/Barnes dance at the Puck Building, Vance has decided to be a bit more proactive with Barnes since other Avengers work with the school. He has decided to use one of the office in the Administrative area and meet with some students to see how the school is and see if/how he can help out. After speaking with Sam Wilson, the principal of the Academy, he has recommended some students for Vance to speak with. Caleb is one such student and so Vance has made an appointment to meet with him. He sits at the desk looking a bit nervous as he has never really played this type of role before.

Caleb is pretty happy to be called to the admin office cos well it gets him outta fifth period, he's dressed in his navy and grey Barnes uniform and has his purple Skullcandy headphones on listening to the youmeatsix cover of Pokerface, "I wanna hold em' like they do in Texas plays, Fold em' let em' hit me, raise it, baby stay with me, Luck and intuition play the cards with spades to start, And after she's been hooked I'll play the one that's on her heart, Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh, I'll get her hot, show her what I've got, Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh, I'll get her hot, show her what I've got", reaching the office he looks around not 100% sure who he's looking for.

Blinking a bit when he hears Caleb singing Pokerface, Vance smiles and stands up from behind the desk and walks forward and extends his hand. He is dressed in his Justice costume with his Avengers insignia. He nods his head to the music, “Miss Gaga fan, huh? She is pretty phat. I jam to her music from time to time.”

Caleb pulls off his headphones as he approaches, "Actually it's a cover version by youmeatsix, it's a lot better than the origanal", how old exactly is this guy, phat?, jam?, "And it's Lady Gaga not miss"
The 23 year old Avenger is clearly nervous, “Sorry. Lady Gaga. And I’ll have to check ot the cover. You said it is the youmeatsix? I’ll have to check them out. Maybe on the youtube or something.” He then introduces himself properly, “I’m Vance Astrovik. Or others know me as Justice. You’re Caleb.”

Caleb nods, "Yep, thats me, nice to meet you Mr. Astrovik", he can't help but feel bad for Vance, he IS clearly nervous and is trying way too hard, "You wanted to see me about something?"

“You can call me Vance.” Justice is a bit more relaxed now and leans against the desk, “Have a seat. I recently returned to the Avengers and now I thought I would help out at Barnes. This is my first official meeting with a student. Mr. Wilson recommended some students and you are the first one I am meeting with.” He telekinetically pulls out a chair, “Have a seat.”

Caleb sits down in the offered seat, "Ok, why was i suggested, as far as i know i'm not in ant trouble right?", he's barely left the base in the last few months, so it's not like he can get in trouble anyway.

“No not all.” Vance smiles, “I wanted to get to know some of the students. Get to know them and what they think of the school. Figure out where I would fit. I was young and never had a school to go to so how I could learn to use my powers. Thankfully the Avengers and Defenders found me young and I joined the New Warriors.” He takes a seat behind the desk, “So tell me. How do you like Barnes?”

Caleb shrugs, "It as good as an underwater millitary base can be i guess, no real complaints, just counting down the days till i graduate i guess", to be fair Barnes could be a palace and he'd still be counting down the days till he leaves.

“Ok then. I guess that is a good recommendation. How long until you graduate? I’m wondering what was some things you like about Barnes? Have a favorite teacher? A favorite course, maybe?” Vance looks through the course list and faculty, “Wow. You have some impressive teachers here. Falcon, Texas Twister, Rocket Raccoon.” Those are the names he recognizes.

"I graduate next summer, i think, still not sure how american grades work", Caleb runs a hand though his hair, "They're all fine i guess, interesting enough, i'm learning enough to pass, so somethings going right"

“Do you feel that your abilities with your powers has improved?” Vance asks as he thinks he should maybe look through the student files, but then would rather learn about them through personal meetings.

"I've stopped phasing without meaning to and my flight and energy blasts are under control, so yeah my control over my powers has improved", Caleb leans back in his chair tilting it onto it's back legs, shame Vance has caught him on a bad mood day.

“Ok, very good. I am glad to see that the school has worked out for you. There are some students at these schools that don’t like them or have a hard time.” Vance offers a smile and cannot really get a sense of Caleb’s feelings. “Is there anything you would like to see changed or improved? Anything that would have made your time here, easier?”

The one thing that would've made things easier would be having his twin Connor there with him, though not like Barnes had much of a choice, Connor turned them down, Caleb shakes his head, "Nope nothing really comes to mind"

“Well that is good to hear then. Do you have any questions for me or anything like that?” Vance asks as he thinks that pretty much covers it for him. It appears Caleb is please student with Barnes and its courses and faculty.

Caleb shrugs, "Do i have to go back to fifth period, or can i call it a day?", he wants to ring home and check to see if his dad has booked his ticket home for spring break, "What do you teach?"

“Yes, you will have to go back to Fifth period. Sorry.” Vance chuckles. He then shrugs, “I’m not actually sure what I will be teaching. I probably won’t start teaching until the fall. Maybe a summer course.”

Caleb sighs, "Yay, fifth period", he should've just kept quiet and sneaked off, can't really do that now he's been told he's to go back to class, "Did i give you everything you wanted to know?"

“Yes, you did. Thank you.” Vance stands up and extends his hand to shake Caleb’s before he leaves. “If you need any assistance or anything you can have the office contact me.”

Caleb shakes Vance's offered hand before getting up to walk away, "Will do, nice meeting you Vance, you did fine too, don't push yourself to try too hard with the next student".

“Thanks. Nice meeting you too and thanks for the advice.” Vance nods and then goes back behind the desk to await the next student.
