==The College==
+
==Cast==
Weirdsister College in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridge Cambridge] is an institution where successful students from magical academies and institutes of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Britain Great Britain] can further their magical education, and where qualified doctors and professors can teach and (along with the students) push the boundaries of magic with experiments. The college has many age-old traditions and legends, such as 'The Agonies' the games held once a year, the prize is possession of The Golden Cauldron, a highly magical artifact, but the winner can only have it for one night.
 
 
Nearby, and owned by the College, is Misery's cafe. This is the local hangout for the main characters, and is also the site of Jazz concerts (in which one character, [[Prof. Alicia Thunderblast|Thunderblast]], plays the trombone). Some students had saved the cafe from closure by 'meddling' with time. Also in the town is [[Dr. Jenny Wendle|Jenny Wendle's studio]], where meditation classes are held.
 
 
The College is a highly magical building, and with so many spells and magical demonstrations being performed, the Fosters effect would destroy the building, so The Bus Spell covers the building and its grounds. This means that every Friday the college has no magic performed in it, or strange events may happen and chaos will rule.
