"Thank whatever deity you'd like to." The fox faunus murmured to himself, chains re-wrapping themselves around his arms as he promptly passed the rest of the waiting team. He could finally get some peace and quiet for a bit, maybe grab a quick snooze, and get his fix. He wasn't, uh, addicted or anything. Nothing of the sort. Coffee just... suited his tastes, that was all!

Attempting to distract himself from his annoyance with his own thoughts, he gave a small smile of amusement as he left, quickly heading towards the cafeteria. Coffeequest had just begun.

Cerise was just about to lie down and attempt to sleep when Verdant offered to show her to the dorm. Oh well, it wasn't like that caffeine was going to let her anyway. Resisting the urge to call out for Samuel to get her some, Cerise nodded and went to grab her luggage. Good thing she had someone to guide her, she hated having to navigate through things, all the turns and such were dizzying. "You wouldn't mind carrying me, would you?" she asked rhetorically. Sighing, Cerise grabbed ahold of her suitcase and followed Verdant. "Now's as good a time as any."

Juno simply watched as everyone left, taking a seat on the mat as he waited. Yeah, this session was definitely a mistake, but at this point, all he could really do was try to pick it up and keep moving. Cancelling would set a bad precedent and waste everyone's time, and pushing on as he had... Yeah, that was also a bad move. As the team leader waited for the rest of VCVS, he stood up, running through a series of forms and occasionally glancing at the entrance to the training hall. As Juno practiced each position, striking the air with great force and greater control, Juno pondered his team, and their progression. He couldn't let himself fail them as he had failed Caja. That was simply unacceptable. But if he was to prevent that from happening, VCVS would have to become far more effective in the field.

He just needed to figure out how to go about that.

As Verdant and Cerise walk through the halls of beacon toward the dorms. The sounds of birds chirping and wind blowing showed the day was starting to rear its head. The sound of this near silence was punctuated with the lack of conversation between the two students. Verdant figured that he should say something to break the ice and to learn more about her.
"Soooo, were you born in Vale or did you move here for school?" Verdant asked hoping to start a conversation to pass the time to the dorm.

Letting out a quiet sigh as he walked down the corridor, Samuel gave a few half-hearted greetings to a few early-risers he knew as he followed his mental map of the academy towards the canteen. Hopefully they'd be up and running for fresh coffee already, though it was a bit early. Well, worse comes to worse, he had a few other options. Cranking the music up in his headphones, he pushed on the door to a still-dark hall.

Well, that answers one question. No food or drink here then, yet. He'd just use the machine; it was fairly cheap and still didn't require him to make it himself. Walking over, the teen flicked his scroll over the payment area, then yoinked one of the cheap plastic cups and put it underneath. There was a faint gurgling sound, and then nothing happened. Frowning, he poked the button for black coffee again, paused, then whacked the side of the machine. A clunking sound echoed, another gurgling started, and then a huge jet of vaguely bean-flavoured water shot out and spurted all over the cup, knocking it onto the floor and splashing some onto Samuel's jacket.

There was another pause and a noticeable twitch in the man's arm before he slumped slightly. No matter, he could just get some cold coffee from the vending machine. Walking to the neighbouring vendor, he took a coin out of his pocket and put it in, pressing the button for iced coffee. Hearing the whirring of the drinks being pushed along, he let his lips turn upwards, watching as the carton- oh.

Watching as the carton got stuck on the edge of the row.

Samuel blinked, expression blank, before grasping the sides of the machine. He stared at the offending drink as the machine began to shake slightly from his semblance, the vibrations speeding up as his impatience grew with the lack of movement. A few cracking noises from the frontal glass later, he let out a long breath, releasing his hold on the machine. No good; it would cost him far more to pay for the damages than he'd get out of it. Maybe he could use the coffee machine in the kitchen instead. He's sure that the staff wouldn't mind so long that he clears up after himsel-

Ah. Doors completely locked.

God damnit. To the dorm it is. He'd have to use his own.

Lot of turns. That wasn't good. Also, trying to start up conversation. How good that was, debateable. "Neither," she replied languidly, pretending to check the time when she suddenly realized that she was not wearing a watch. Lovely. "I was born in Atlas, but I didn't move here for Beacon. I've been in Vale since I was six." As maybe a tiny hint, drew her claws out momentarily to admire before sheathing again. "You're either trying to grill me for info or trying to start up a conversation, get to know me better, whatever." She turned her head slightly to look at him. "Good luck with that."

Verdant was surprised by her revealing her claws. He figured that she left for Beacon to stop discrimination just like Verdant had. He was glad she hadn't joined the White Fang like many other Faunus or fled to Menagerie to run from the problems of the world. He was just pleased that she was trying to make a positive difference in the world. 
"Sorry if I hit a nerve, I'm just trying to get to know you better," Verdant said apologetically.
"I get what it like not to be wanted where you are," Verdant said is a low tone.

Musing whether he wanted to bother actually walking all the way over to the dorm and possibly bumping into one of his teammates or other - well, not quite friends, but acquaintances at least - and get stuck in the seemingly required conversations and greetings, or having to bother doing some exercise, Samuel slowly pushed open one of the windows to the hall. A quick look out got him wincing at the brightness of the morning sun. How did people manage getting up at this time regularly? Masochists.

Deciding that the thought of people who actually liked getting up at this time put him too off social interaction, he twisted his head, looking for the familiar- ah, there we go. The rest of his team - well, baring Cerise, she hadn't even been in the dorm as far as he knew, had made a bit of a fuss over him just casually grabbing a metal rod and hammering it through the wall, but damn it it made for an awesome elevator, aaand it meant he didn't have to bother talking to a single person if he wanted to wander off somewhere. They can go take their safety precautions, their 'what the fuck are you doing's and their actually decent social interaction skills and shove it up their collective-

Thoughts for another time, perhaps, when he wasn't quite so frustrated by a lack of coffee.

Rungs unwinding from his arm, a chain snapped out, and with a noticeable thunk wrapped around the completely safe and not at all unstable method of transportation, before he yanked himself upwards with a jerk. Good thing that aura existed, otherwise he'd have probably broken his spine by doing that or something. Making it up to the windowsill, he pulled it open, sliding into the still empty dorm. Verdant and the newbie seemed to be taking a while.

Cerise sighed. "It's better here. I was only four, don't even remember Atlas too much. And..." She tilted her head to very slightly face Verdant, waving her hand in dismissal to his apology. "You didn't hit a nerve. I'm always like this." She didn't ask more about what he meant about the second sentence. It was partly that she didn't really think that spilling all would be particularly good for practical strangers, new teammates or not. And also partly because she didn't realize that he might've said that so she would ask about it. "Are we there yet?" she asked, somewhat impatiently.

Verdant was glad he hadn't annoyed her with his previous comment, that would have been a real bad first conversation. He looked up to see where he was going and realized that they were just around the corner from team VSVC dorm. "We're almost there the dorm is just around the bend." said Verdant to answer Cerise. He walked around the corner and pulled out his key out of his pocket to open the dorm. "I'll open the door, and I don't think you have a key right?" said in a rhetorical tone.  He opened the door to reveal the dorm; it was a big room with beds on the far wall. On the left-hand corner of the room closest to the door, there was a section of the room that was a sort of kitchen area. Next, to the kitchen, there was a restroom with a shower. "Make yourself at home, the kitchen is there, restroom and that your bed." on each thing Verdant named he pointed to it.

Verdant took off his quiver and walked over to the kitchen. "Do you want anything I'm going to make some breakfast?" as Verdant spoke he took out a pan. He then went to the fridge to get eggs, ham, bread. Preparing to make a breakfast sandwich.

Walking towards the kitchen, Samuel heard faint voices approaching the room's entrance before keys were pushed into the lock. Wincing slightly - he didn't particularly want to deal with anyone right now - he instead went straight into the kitchen. Opening a cabinet with a chain, he fiddled around within as the two others entered the room, mumbling a vague greeting as he searched for his satchels he used in the coffee maker. Finding the packaging, he pulled it out, and took a glance inside. One milk packet and no coffee to go with it. Sighing, he put it back in, reaching down into a drawer to take out some coffee powder and make it himself. Not quite as nice, but better than noth-

Aaand empty again.

"For fuck's sake..." The faunus murmured quietly to himself, pushing the drawer closed with a little more force than necessary and quickly passing Verdant who had come in to grab the ingredients without a passing glance. He had some quality beans that he was saving, but they were kinda pricy. He needed some of the damn stuff, though. Passing by the front door, he gave an absent-minded wave to the newbie as he headed towards his bed.

Cerise exhaled in relief as Verdant stopped to tell her that they'd arrived. Finally. And the dorm itself wasn't too shabby either. Even if it was, she didn't have much choice, it was going to be her home for the next few years. At least, it would be if everything worked out with team VCVS. The layout was nice and simple, it was really unneccesary to point everything out as Verdant had done, but that was probably just courtesy or whatever. She didn't really care.

Removing her shoes and setting her stuff against the wall next to the door, Cerise stepped fully into the place. She was just about to respond to Verdant when she saw Samuel there. Strange, she didn't see him in the hallways... Oh well. "I can prepare it myself." Prepare was actually kind of stretching it, considering she was thinking of bread and butter. Cerise walked over to the fridge to search for and find butter, Verdant had already unwittingly done her the favor of setting out the other ingrediant. She took a bit to find where they kept utensils and the such, where she took out a butter knife. Everything ready, Cerise started to butter two slices of bread for her breakfast.
