Once upon a time there was a school.
I’m bored already. I don’t want to hear a story about a school. I’m sick of schools as places where stories happen. Muggles or non-muggles. I don’t care.
Once upon a time there was a high-school.
Worse! I don’t care about what goes on at some stupid suburban high-school or some stupid rich kids private school. And I for sure DON’T want a story about some inspirational white person who is middle class and who “changes the lives” of the poor underclass persons who are not like that inspirational white person. Freedom Writers! Argh!
Once upon a time there was a university.
Ugh. Nothing even happens there except – in the olden days professors and students used to hook up. But that was boring too. So no one does it any more.
Once upon a time there was a medical school.
Wait – are there dead bodies in it?
Once upon there was a laboratory at a research center.
Seriously? No way, not unless something blows up!
Once upon a time there was a shopping mall that was the only structure that survived an unnamed global disaster.
Now you’re talking.
