### OOC Announcement

Mar. 23rd, 2008 03:10 pmSome of y'all have probably been looking at Bucky's username,

**zimniisoldat**going, "WTF keyboard smash?" or "WTF sold at Zimnii? Where's Zimnii?" For those of you who haven't been following Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America, Bucky spent the latter half of the twentieth century as an amnesiac Soviet science project/assassin, codenamed Winter Soldier. Zimnii Soldat is Winter Soldier in romanized Russian. And now you know!

Second, and more important for interaction purposes, Jean-Paul Beaubier's sister

**dawnnotdawn**is crazy. As in, certifiable. She has schizophrenia/Multiple Personality Disorder, and has two distinct personalities who

*hate each other's guts*: Jeanne-Marie and Aurora. If I refer to her Jeanne-Marie, she is very conservatively dressed, with her hair pulled back in a tight bun, and her Quebecois accent is very pronounced. Jeanne-Marie is very sheltered and conservative and easily offended. If I refer to her as Aurora, she has loose hair, provocative clothes, much less of an accent, and is kind of wild and man-crazy and on the prowl.

**Class Requirements**: Okay, look, I was an English major in college, meaning I haven't taken math in about three years, and I'm pretty sure none of you want to take math over, either. Most of the actual math-related content will be handwaved.

Sign in before 12:01 AM Saturday. Participate as much as you can. Handwaving is totally fine. Let me know if your character's going to miss class, either IC or OOC. Two unexcused absences will land your character in detention. Asking Mr. Beaubier when you'll use

*this*in the real world will result in detention and rolled eyes.

**Grades**will be based on your character's grade on the midterm and final, and any pop quizzes that might pop up along the way.
