I've decided to do some third person perspective, but please tell me if you think it's not working! Or if you think it works better. ^_^ And if you think this part is ridiculous, tell me that as well, because I'm really not sure...

Well, it seems that things haven't worked out quite to plan. So, a new plan has been formed instead! I'm undertaking this project on my own. But I would love it if everyone in the community would drop by to read!

Actually, that's only the plan if what I've written goes down well. I've written Blackadder's first piece. If this is moderately well received, I will continue. If not, I won't and I'll move on to another idea instead. So, I'm relying on your honesty here. ^_^

Also, if I continue I might post challenges every so often. fryphile suggested the idea, and I thought it a good one. Plus, it will probably give me a break from writing when I feel I need it!

Anyway, I think I'd better let Blackadder do the talking now...

St. Bartholomew’s Public School is a country house, formerly the home of the highly esteemed Aricton family. Since its inception in the early 19th century, it has been home to no more than 140 boys each year, priding itself on an education that is both practical and moral.

Now it is 1924, and the students are accepted by K. Richards, the current headmaster. He still lives by the motto that the founder Roderick Williams announced on the day of the school’s opening: “Non Sibi Sed Scholae” (“Not for Self but for School”). This sentiment of camaraderie is woven deeply into the school’s structure, and the four different Houses are taught to look at themselves as part of a more important whole. Of course, this doesn’t prevent a ‘friendly rivalry’ between the Houses: Bacon, Austen, Blake and King (all named after authors). Regrettably, this rivalry results in juvenile nicknames ('Pigs' for Bacon scholars, 'Princes' for Kings, and effeminate namecalling for those in the Austen house, as the only house named after a woman). Needless to say, this is strictly discouraged.

St. Bartholomew’s is situated in Sussex, surrounded by countryside and its own land. The school grounds are extensive, as is the school itself. Having once belonged to a very wealthy family, there is no shortage of rooms on its three floors for classrooms, dormitories, prefects' private studies, teachers' offices, and kitchens in the basement. There is also an adequately sized library, a few prep rooms for older students to study and a large hall for assemblies and meals. Teachers, and the houses Austen, Bacon and King, are all accommodated in the house.

On the grounds, there are various outhouses, including stables and bike sheds, and the Blake dormitory (formerly the groundskeeper’s house). There is also extensive space for games of rugby, cricket, and football.

About a mile and a half from the school, there is a small village called Downing Trent, pop. 3,021. A road passes near to the school (motorists can make a turning into the driveway to get to the building) and goes straight into the village. As well as housing, there is a Post Office, Mrs. Miggin's Teashoppe, greengrocers, butchers, newsagent, sweetshop and All Saints' Church.
