Let’s Make Cabbage Rolls #1
Riddle: Peel the cabbage’s outer leaves and core it... Good, so far my progress has been perfect.
Next you boil them... Once that’s finished, I can use them to roll up the meat filling.
The recipe didn’t mention anything about the size of the leaves...
Should I cut them with scissors into rectangles, around the size of a handkerchief?
No, let me think. Considering that the thickness of the leaves isn’t even, if I made them all weigh the same, then their strength would be leveled...
Ghost Chef: Are you stuck on something, Riddle?
Riddle: Chef, perfect timing. There’s something I’d like to ask you.
Do the shape and weight of each leaf need to be even?
Ghost Chef: You don’t need to make them the same size. Any necessary adjustments can be made when you’re rolling them.
Riddle: I see. So the cabbages are fine as they are. May I ask you another question?
Ghost Chef: Of course! What is it?
Riddle: I’d like to know how much water to use for boiling. It isn’t written in the recipe.
Ghost Chef: Just enough to submerge the cabbage leaves. There’s no need for any exact measurements.
Now, while that’s boiling, let’s move onto the next step!
Ghost Chef: We’ll begin making the meat filling now. First, mince the onions!
Riddle: Mince... If I remember correctly, that means cut them into 1-to-2 millimetre cubes. Alright, I’ll measure them with a ruler...
Ghost Chef: STOOOP!
Riddle: ? What’s wrong, Chef?
Ghost Chef: You just need to make them tiny! There’s no need for a ruler. They’re going to change shape while they’re simmering anyway.
Riddle: O-Oh, is that right? But I’m trying to make them as even in size as possible...
Ghost Chef: Riddle, you’re one of the extra cautious ones, eh? I saw that you measured everything down to the millilitre too.
By the way, what made you decide to join Master Chef?
Riddle: I believe the dorm leader should not only be the best at academics, but at cooking as well.
On top of that...
I want to get experience with making money while I can, to prepare for when I’m on my own in the future.
Ghost Chef: Mm-hmm, working towards the future is a wonderful motive to have!
Now, what about you from the counter next over? Silver?
Silver: The reason I thought about joining Master Chef? Riddle invited me.
He told me: “Cooking requires a lot of focus. Wouldn’t that be good practice for you, who’s always dozing off?”
And I agreed with him. Plus I’ve always wanted to brush up on my cooking skills.
Ghost Chef: But from the looks of things, you already seem a little familiar with this. You were completely unfazed when using the kitchenware.
Silver: I’m not sure I would say “familiar.”
My cooking experience is pretty much limited to grilling and seasoning with salt and pepper. That’s why I want to broaden my skillset.
That way I can make more delicious food for my father, who raised me.
But like Riddle, the payment was also one of the appeals.
If I save up little by little, then I won’t have to cause trouble for my father in the future.
Ghost Chef: Aww... Silver, you’re such a good son!
Silver: Huh? What’s the matter, Riddle?
Riddle: Kgh... Aghh!! I-I can’t stop crying...
Ghost Chef: Ah! Riddle... Did listening to Silver just now bring you to tears?!
Oh, I feel you! I know exactly how you feel!! It moved me so deeply that I almost shed a tear myself...
Riddle: N-No, not that! I mean, yes, it was a very nice story, but these tears aren’t because I’m emotional...
Silver & Ghost Chef: The?
Riddle: The onions are stinging my eyes!!!
Ghost Chef: What? That’s what made you cry?! That was so misleading!!
Silver: That’s happened to me dozens of times before. Are you okay, Riddle?
Riddle: I-I’m not! How do you ease these symptoms?!
Silver: Ah, hold on, Riddle! Rubbing your eyes will only—
Riddle: AGH! Rubbing them made it worse... I-It stings~!!!
Ghost Chef: Ooh, Riddle! That meat filling has a nice stickiness to it.
Goodness~ I was so worried about what would happen when you started crying earlier, but I’m glad you made it to this point all right.
Okay! Now let’s switch gears and start stuffing the cabbages.
Riddle: No, I divided the filling into four parts, but they aren’t equal yet! I need to keep adjusting them...
Ghost Chef: Don’t worry! You won’t care about them once they get rolled up.
Besides, your ingredients will lose their freshness if you waste too much time.
Riddle: Hmm... I still feel dissatisfied, but alright. I’ll follow your instructions, Chef.
Now I’ll wrap the meat filling with the cabbage I boiled. The recipe said to “tightly roll” them...
Riddle: Ah! I used too much pressure—the cabbage tore!
Ghost Chef: Oh, dear. Your filling is only going to gush out of that tear.
Well, start over with one of your spares.
Riddle: Kgh...! The next one will be perfect!

Let’s Make Cabbage Rolls #2
Riddle: The next step is to... “Simmer the cabbage rolls for 20 minutes.”
Line them up in the pot, add water and consommé, salt and pepper it, and turn on the heat... There.
Good, I did it.
Ghost Chef: As long as you don’t forget to skim the fat every once in a while, the rest shouldn’t be that hard.
Okay, Riddle. Why don’t you reflect on today while you’re keeping an eye on that pot?
How has your experience been with Master Chef?
Riddle: Let’s see... Compared to Silver, who was working next to me, I think my skills still have a long way to go.
Even though I memorized the entire recipe, when doing it in person I still had trouble with some areas...
Ghost Chef: Ahh, it’s true there are a few surprisingly specific steps and measurements that aren’t spelt out for you~
Riddle: Right. That’s what made me realize I need to build up experience and get a stronger feel of this.
Silver: Does that mean even a straight-A student like you needs to put in some work to succeed in Master Chef?
Riddle: That’s right. There are many things besides cooking that I don’t know, and things I can’t do.
Today made that clear to me once more. This has been a good experience.
Ghost Chef: Ohhh~!! It never gets old to see young people so eager to improve!
Riddle, I can’t wait to see how you progress in the future!
Now then, your cabbage rolls are just about done. Let’s go ask the judges to sample them.
♡—Cafeteria - Judging Venue—♡
Riddle: Alright, I’ll bring my cabbage rolls to the tasting area...
The judge that will be trying my dish is...
Malleus: Rosehearts. So you are the chef this time around?
These are cabbage rolls I made. I’ll await your judgment.
Malleus: ...Well, this is certainly something. Your cabbage rolls are so different in size.
Put next to each other, the contrast is so glaring that they almost look like parent and child.
Riddle: Ggh... Well, I... N-No, you’re right.
Malleus: Now, I will go ahead and sample it.
(Bites & chews...)
Riddle: (I measured out everything according to the recipe. The way they look is one thing, but there shouldn’t be any major issues with the taste...)
...How is it?
Malleus: It’s not that I can’t eat it. It’s just...
This was made by the student who always achieves the highest grades out of the second-year class.
I was eager to see what sort of wonderful dish you would produce...
However, the taste and presentation are mediocre at most. I suppose I overestimated you a little.
...Thank you for the helpful feedback.
Ghost Chef: My goodness! You did so well for your first Master Chef!
Riddle, I’ll always be happy to teach you if you want to improve even more.
You absolutely must give it another go!
Riddle: ...Yes, Chef. Thank you for everything you taught me today.
...I would say I still have a long way to go before I can be proud of my cooking skills.
But I’m not going to give up simply because this was difficult.
One day I, Riddle Rosehearts, will be the best chef at this academy!

Hello, I would like to ask for headcanons of the leech brothers and azul when discovering that mc is an angel, what would they do next or how would they take it, thanks for creating the blog uu
You would like a headcan and I would like to get a thousand euros ... However, writing this request is much more likely than having someone give me a thousand euros XD
"I knew it!"
Azul was very surprised when he found out that you are an angel.
But yes, he thinks it makes sense and explains many things.
You were always so kind, considerate and innocent
The phrase "You are an angel" takes on a whole new meaning.
He will fall in love with you much more after this
Azul would really like to see your angelic form.
He will tell you how beautiful you are so much that it is starting to get a little annoying already.
He becomes more sensitive after this.
Azul may also be more in his octopus form near you.
"Do you have wings? Have you died before? Will it hurt if I remove the melt from your wings? Can i bite you?"
Very many questions...
He also does a lot of “hands-on testing” of how you react in certain situations.
That is, be prepared for your computer to throw you on "Adult Entertainment" sites
Floyd will stop these tests if you tell him to.
Btw this boy doesn't know at first what an angel is.
( Christianity has not yet taken root on the seabed )
Floyd is very willing to listen to stories about your religion and outlook on life.
The first five minutes.
After that, he gets bored and wants to do something more interesting.
"Oh Darling this is interesting. Could you tell me more?"
Jade’s reaction is the same as Floyd’s, but he’s much more polite.
He wants to know more about your species and habits.
You two have a lot of conversations that last for many hours.
Jade would like to see your angelic form.
He strokes your wings and tells you how beautiful you are.
If you’re somehow ignorant of Octavinelle mafia Jade takes care you never get to know about it.
He wants you to remain as innocent as possible.
And he would do anything to ensure it.
Btw Am I the only one who thinks Azul resembles a mafia boss? lol

How do you think the guys (dorm leaders and whoever else inspires you) would react to a tiny MC who is like the embodiment of Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross in that they're calm and wholesome and sweet and just overall a positive person who reassures others when they're down? Like next to Kalim they're sunshine given human form that likes to bake cookies and other treats, and as they start questioning how such a person exists they get told in response, "The world is already dark and cruel. What's wrong with wanting to be a candle in the darkness for others?"
Very wholesome, I like it.
Note: I usually write MC as a girl but since the ask uses they, I’m just gonna go with that
Despite their short and small stature, the prefect always seems so strong
Standing straight against all those fate throws against them
Not a tear nor a single frown even in the face of peril
Anyone in their place would’ve been scared and that was fine because it was hard to adjust when they suddenly got dropped into a foreign world where everything is different
No family, no friends, they don’t even have anything with them to remember their original world
With a cat(?) in hand and some ghosts at their side, the prefect gets to work
Studying with Adeuce and Grim, cleaning up the ramshackle dorm
Making new friends and solving problems along the way
Even the students who looked down upon the prefect with no magic couldn’t say anything bad about them
As soon as the prefect started experimenting with cooking, almost everyone were being stuffed with baked cookies
No one really noticed that after a while, they were given the baked goods that they liked the most
There were little notes written within their cookbook, like so and so prefers this type of flavors and so and so dislikes this ingredient
Some of the student never bothered to tell the prefect what they liked or didn’t like but they noticed
Idia comments on how the prefect is too bright for his eyes
Of course some of the students finds it a bit unnerving because how can someone this selfless and kind exist
Jamil tells the prefect that they don’t have to do good things for everyone because there’s nothing to be gained from it
"The world is already dark and cruel. What's wrong with wanting to be a candle in the darkness for others?"
“. . suit yourself.”
Azul finds it peculiar that someone could be this selfless as he could never imagine himself doing the same
But it does feel a little nice to have someone be nice to you with no ulterior motive
The prefect goes through the overblots, one by one and even when it comes down to facing aganist Grim, they never falter
Because they were like the sun, always so warm and strong
