Challenge #03664-J011: Any Rogue With a Pencil

Una familia se acerca a Wraithvine y le pide el don... de la alfabetizaciĆ³n. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Translated from Spanish by DuckDuckGo: A family approaches Wraithvine and asks for the gift... of literacy.]

"Of course I can teach," said Wraithvine. Ze would begin with the Trader Tongue, since it was literally everywhere and understood by most, if not all, intelligent creatures. It would do them the most good in the least amount of time. Ze would also take hir time to teach as much as possible of their native language. That, too, was important.

No time is ever wasted in teaching anyone literacy. Not even an immortal's time.

The reason for their request came easily enough. They had relied upon their neighbour to help write down the accounts, and were therefore helpless against the local tax collectors when the lies cost them more than they could usually afford.

Challenge #03631-I343: Core Education

More lessons for the young man, maybe a few life lessons on self care, and self confidence? Maybe, eventually, helping others from that school?

They say that the oldest magic is the strongest, and they're not wrong. In the glory days of forgotten empires, there were less people for more magic. So of course every spell was stronger and had lasting power.

In the more recent day, such as the days Strodius

Challenge #03616-I328: One in Ten Thousand

A person teaches some fellow Deathworlders how to take fruit, and turn them into alcohol. -- Anon Guest

[AN: I'm pretty sure most Deathworlders know how to brew anything capable of fermentation. And frequently will.]

"You guys are only using waste paper for your alcohol?"

"There are other things to make fast-burning fuel with?"

Human Ward glared at their fellow Deathworlders, and briefly thought about geologically-rendered dinosaur fat[1] before blurting, "You guys never drank this?"

"It's fuel, why would we drink

Challenge #03570-I281: Object Lessons

Could we have a scene of Wraithvine, Amatu, Vee, and Pondermore teaching this young mage? I'd love to see how he teaches the mage, and the young mage stopping his former instructor, now turned tormentor, from ever killing again?

It's from this. https://peakd.com/fiction/@internutter/challenge-03504-i216-the-right-teacher

Forgive me, I saw you have Gikka there, so it would be those others and gentle Gikka, so Vee would be all grown up now, or maybe gone of old age herself? And I'm

Ma captures a merc who'd caught her to try to trap her son and the rest of the party. The leader of the flock of raven-folk, imagine the looks on Wraithvine's and the rest of their faces when she shows up with her new feathered friends.

The Raven-folk were said to be cursed by the gods. They had the power of creation taken away from them. Less

Challenge #03376-I088: Of Sticks and Stones

A parent severely scolds their children for using terms like tief and trash dragon, among other slurs, when talking to, or of, other beings within their village. They were, after all, just as valuable as citizens of their lands, as everyone else. -- Fighting Fit

The parental shadow loomed over Minta. "If I heard what I thought I heard," menaced Rennie Ainsel. "I'd better not have."

Minta noticed that his older friends had fled for better environments. Ones without - for example

Challenge #03226-H317: Those Who Cut It

A new cooking school opens up that is considered one of the hardest schools of that type to be in. Where almost all classes were like competitions and the instructors were very strict. Even to become a student, one had to sign a waiver stating that they knew they could be dropped from the program at any moment if their scores in the classes got too low. Still, for those that graduated, they were considered among some of the best chefs in

Challenge #03161-H252: Teaching Gently

Level 1 Havenworlders, and levels one through three Deathworlders, were being trained in how to work in childcare facilities that would have human children there. How to help them burn off the excess energy Human children tended to have, and to keep the Human children, and all other children, as well as themselves, safe. -- Anon Guest

Education in the Galactic Alliance gets... interesting. Class sizes rarely exceed ten. Indeed, eight is when the facility starts looking at ways to divide the

Challenge #03074-H151: Learning to Reach Out

She'd been years, her and so many, many others, being 'deprogrammed'. Her entire life she had lived with hate. She had lived with the idea that violence was a GOOD thing. That these aliens were brutal monsters. That Pure Humans were the only true life in this universe and the rest were filth. It had taken a long, long, time for her and the rest to learn, to understand, and to accept the reality of the world.

From this prompt. https://peakd.

Challenge #03022-H099: Situational Education

Human children have a propensity to pet anything that's soft and furry. It's just a part of what seems to be observable human nature from childhood into adulthood. However, sometimes children had to be taught to not pet the fuzzy. In this case, they meet a havenworlder who has a soft, fluffy, service animal that has a sweet, little purr. The havenworlder, due to very advanced age, has gone very hard of hearing, the service animal makes sure they stay calm. --

Challenge #02787-G230: A Necessary Education

All of the Top Schools, get 'problem students', some get rid of the fast. Our Lady of Purity embraced them. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Throwback to this thing in case you were wondering]

Somewhere in the known universe, there is a paradise. Nothing sharp exists there. The weather is always balmy and pleasant. The sands are soft on the beaches, and the shells are always pretty. Somewhere, sweet water flows and the air is full of birdsong. This is not that place.

One of the Greater Deregulation planets found itself short of breeding stock and extended offers to girl's schools to come study abroad at their planet. St. Trinians accepted their offer. Greater Deregulation never saw what was coming next. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Since I really don't want to nick anyone else's IP, for my universe -excepting guest cameos- I shall have to use a St. Trinian's expy for this tale]

"They can't be serious," said Dame Lorx. "An extended offer to add

Challenge #02554-F364: Learning to See

Just as there are xenophobes amongst the various races outside the Galactic Alliance, so, too, are there within. Even amongst races that are, normally, allies. They and their family, and many within their community, were such xenophobes. They chanted Earth First during the protests they ran to show their displeasure of alien races being allowed to visit their world. Some of the more radicalized ones even committed crimes to try to "prove their point". This group, however in the minority they were,

Challenge #02383-F193: No More Pencils...

Can we hear more about the changes in intergalactic schools? (And can two of them be the removal of perfect attendance "awards" and school lunches that even the most well behaved child can't choke down?) -- Anon Guest

The Cogniscent Rights Committee had a lot to say about Terran Standard Schooling, especially that of the pre-shattering era, relics of which can still be found in Terran colonies. Nothing it had to say about the school system was polite. They tried, but there

Challenge #02342-F152: Skill Building Exercise

A school with different Races Like Humans, Havenworlders and other Deathworlders have a Projectweek.

Of course at the End of the Week the Pupils present their Projects each one at a small stand and get their Grades for their Work.

(Go with this anywhere you want and have a great Day ^^) -- Anon Guest

In a Mixed Toughness schooling environment, certain things are forbidden. Sudden shocks can be bad for Havenworlders, and certain Deathworlders play by using shocks on each other. The
