When the white tent goes up in Brigham Square, you know The Quill and the Sword is looking for fresh blood, I mean, new members.
And those initiates can hardly imagine what awaits them.
Their lives will be full of midnight runs across campus, wielding swords, maces, etc. They will start using terms like "hence" and "oft" more frequently in regular speech. And when they plan their weddings, only the best of the medieval reenactments will suffice.
All the while, the rest of us will look on and wonder why they were born in this century in this country and go to this school. They would have been much better of at Salamanca or Oxford or Hogwarts...
