I'm just a girl named Bella muddling her way through life. It's been a constant battle and most times I don't know how to deal with all of it, but I am trying. I am looking up and remembering the stars. If you want to know more about me, visit my "About Me" Page or ask away! :)
PRICHARD OF PRICHARD HALL: CHEATER.
By Ewan McBay
Andrew Prichard is the son of a legacy — his father attended Valeton, his grandfather, his great-great grandfather… He is, by all accounts, a privileged student with everything simply handed to him. But Andrew Prichard refuses to be known simply as “The Prichard On Campus” and has pushed himself as far as he can from that name and legacy.
Until it benefits him.
Last year, a test was stolen from a history course and the answers were shared amongst the students. Since that time, the concern has been largely swept under the rug and the student body has all but forgotten the breach of academic ethics. Why?
Not long after the test incident became quiet, Valeton received a large donation on behalf of the Prichard family; this in and of itself may be little cause for alarm: the Prichards donate regularly to Valeton. However, the amount was substantial and has led to the beginning of construction on a new library.
Watch Alice Rackham’s video series “Classic Alice” (available on YouTube at YouTube.com/ClassicAliceSeries) and it becomes all too obvious why, exactly, Valeton University has largely ignored the stolen test. Corrupt practices catering to the wealthy Prichard family are at the heart of this issue and lay at the feet of the administration, but what of Prichard? Should he be allowed to play Romeo to the hapless Alice’s Juliet while committing an offense that should have seen him expelled? Obviously there is some kind of romantic pairing between the two - or else why would he have bothered?
It is far and away time to right the wrongs of both Valeton and the Prichard family.
I, um. I don’t even know what to say.
It’s so .. perfect. And it’s so rare! Oh my god. I know it’s a little worse for wear, but I know this book & he must’ve spent … That aside, I can’t even believe he FOUND this. I’d mentioned months and months ago, offhandedly at a bookshop when we were trying to figure out what book to do next before Crime & Punishment ever started (before I met any of you, even!), that I used to read this old book my local library at home must’ve thrown out at some point about a journey through a land of books. Kinda like what the experiment would be.
Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
