The halls of Manhattan High School, on this particular morning, were the same as any other morning. Students bustled and loitered, primped and posed. Tony Baker and Joan Staples, intimately intertwined and sharing Bone Domes, swayed down the hall, almost stepping on Bud Beezle, a vampire squidling from Beyond the Deep, causing the startled sophomore to squirt his bioluminescent mucus, at great emotional and metabolic cost. Nine out of ten students were human, and most of the others were humanoid, with enlarged or additional parts or animal attributes, but each somehow alike, as if one could strip away the fur and scales, the ear tips and pig noses, and they would be no different after all.
