    Things had not been settling down as Liliana hoped. People were still oddly on edge since the attack at school involving holy water by a student from Halcyon and the altercation days later between three Halcyonites with the subsequent arrest of a former hero for attacking his own son. All of which, though unrelated, had only added to the general feeling of mistrust among the student body.

    Entering the unused classroom the Hereafter club used for their meetings, Liliana looked around to see if Iggy was still around. They (or she) really needed to talk to someone, get an outside perspective maybe. She felt that, at times, she was too close to everything. She had, as student council president, attended meetings and checked out small rallies and she just got a sense that the message was not getting out there, and wondered what else could be done.

    "Iggy?" she called out, "You got a moment?" she asked as she made her way into the classroom.

    Iggy had actually seen Liliana coming thanks to his ability to see through funeral flowers. He'd set one up just by the door to see how it would work. He'd actually go out of his way to practice it later on though. He was just about to leave, but he was in no hurry to be anywhere. He also had a feeling he knew what this was going to be about.

    "I've always got time to spare, what's up?"

    Liliana turned around when she heard Iggy's voice behind her, relieved and happy that he was still around and that she didn't have to go hunting around the school and its grounds to find him.

    "Hey there, great, just the person I needed to see," she said smiling as she walked over to where he was and plopped herself down on a desktop.

    "This whole prank attack business is a real mess," she told him with a sigh, pretty sure he knew all the details since he was one of Alma's boyfriends. "Nobody really knows what to do because nobody knows, except Xavier, what the motivations were," she said. "How can we fight against an unknown, and probably irrational, fear?"

    Oh he knew all about the incident between Alma and Angelo, he was probably more privy to information than most people. Iggy thought about it for a moment before he came to his answer. It was probably the most obvious one, especially given the overall nature of Hereafter.

    "Well, I think the answer to that is simple. You keep people informed. Ignorance breeds fear, people don't act as crazy when they know and understand things. That's why we don't have inquisitions and witch hunts when there's flu outbreaks."

    He started to say more, but instead he just took a seat. This was probably going to be a long conversation. "That and just... we can't let this incident just totally change how we live our lives."

    Liliana sat back on the desk comfortable when he sat down, and lightly pushed her hair out of her face and behind her ear as she listened intently to Iggy's advice.

    "Yeah, that's basically what we are trying to do, or hopefully trying to do. But there are still those out there, you know, those that are dead set on believing there will be some type of retaliation," she said with a slight frown as she thought of her conversation with Gabriel.

    "Well, on one hand I get wanting to get back at that asshole. But that won't solve anythiing. And I think for the most part we can talk down anyone who's thinking about it," Iggy rubbed his chin and thought about it some more.

    "Honestly, I can kind of speak as a member of a generally spiteful species. They're not going to do it because that's what people would want them to do. If you wanna go for maximum damage, then you go out of your way to prove them wrong. In this case, being petty means being the bigger person."

    Liliana had forgotten Iggy was fae. He was generally easygoing and nice - at least with her and those around or close to him, that she hadn't remembered that about him.

    "Yes, I agree, perhaps we can hold an open doors event or rally of some sort. Try to reach people that might not attend Demon held events or events held by the student council," Liliana suggested thoughtfully. She had been to a DSU meeting and it had been rather interesting. But there were still those that didn't fit in with the demons, and maybe felt somewhat isolated. Maybe the Hereafter could reach out to them?

    "I've actually been thinking on this a lot lately. It might be complicated, but I want to try setting up one on one meet ups with members of different species in conjunction with cultural classes. Especially around the beginnings of each term. We get so many new people who are unfamiliar to things," he rubbed his chin, looking a bit unsure.

    "Cultural classes and things are nice, but even they can plant the wrong ideas in people's heads. We need to know this stuff but people are people. Also logistically speaking, this might be kind of complicated."

    "Lately, I have been joining the welcoming committees and orientation groups when I have time.." Liliana informed Iggy, "Maybe we can use that in some way, possibly?" she suggested questioningly.

    "It would also fit in nicely with my student pres duties and help us, the student council and Hereafter, generally become more involved, I think." here she was a tad unsure, but she was willing to try if Iggy was.
