"I didn't think it was legal to have that much potassium nitrate in a single shipment..."
He came to Dalton to concentrate.
He's mildly apprehensive yet somehow relieved to be at Dalton.
He likes certain branches of Science.
He loves Literature.
He enjoys environmental science, astronomy science, botany science.
He liked Thor from the moment he saw him.
Hanover brought a carriage to attach to Thor, so Oliver gets rides from Thor in the carriage. He'd rathor Thor roam free though.
He got a lot of chocolate on Easter - everyone seems to enjoy giving him candy.
Oliver once played a song with Raven and Corey. He played the violin alongside them. He impressed them all by playing a forceful Beethoven. Raven then deduced that Oliver has been sad a lot, especially if he was playing like that to let his feelings out. Justin then arrived to come talk Oliver to see Ms. Medel, thanking the Haven boys for looking after him.
Oliver considers the boys of Hanover his friend.
Oliver calls Danny "Daniel" and says he's his closest friend.
Danny has been tasked as Oliver's "school buddy", as well as offered to be his roommate, but Oliver doesn't wish to intrude.
Oliver says about Merril: "Merril is a very elegant lady and we are fortunate to have her presence."
When all the boys got together to read scary stories to each other; Ollie's been absorbing this with big eyes and he kind of looks like any other kid listening to scary stories.
It's normal for him to be sitting with Thor the Pony and if Marky the Duck wanders by, he gives him some food too. He's like a Disney prince. Not to mention the time that butterfly landed on the spine of his book and he remained perfectly still so it wouldn't be bothered. And that time when Danny and Spencer were frantically trying to get him to move because a Northern Copperhead was slithering nearby, and he didn't even look up, "Leave him alone...he's just trying to find his way back out of the grounds...he won't bother us if we don't bother him." And sure enough, the snake kinda just went on its way. Thor was a bit spooked but Oliver kinda petted his neck and told him it's ok.
Oliver and Windsor
Spencer, Danny and Oliver were stopped when they were trying to leave Hanover one day. When Justin asked where they were going, Justin and Danny pointed to Oliver and they said they were taking him to Windsor. Merril asked why he was going there, and Oliver mentioned he'd been invited to joiin the science club.
Justin then said no, but Merril didn't see why he couldn't go. Spencer said that they were going along with him so they could curb any potential damage. Justin then told them to stay there while he called Charlie. Spencer glard at Danny and said, "I told you." but Danny just said it was worth a shot. Merril then gave Ollie a fresh scone and said it was good that he was making friends.
Danny said there is nothing wrong with Windsor, and Wes was a Windsor. Spencer then said, "Okay, I want you to hear yourself say that. Listen to yourself say it, go on." so Danny replied, "........okay, maybe I see your point." all while Ollie quietly ate his scone and waited. Justin on the phone was saying, "--and I want absolutely nothing incendiary near the three of them!" to which Charlie replied, "Oh for godssakes, Hanover, you're basically asking me to have them hold the meeting in Reed's room."
Justin said that was a good idea but Charlie said he'd keep watch and not let them blow anything up. Oliver then asked if they could go, and Justin told Spencer and Danny to go with him, make sure the Twins stay far away and don't let the Drew and Satoru feed him anything they made. Merril gave Ollie another scone and told him to have fun. Spencer grumbled about Windsors as they left.
Fourth Of July 2012
Spencer crawled under his bed and was screaming, "GET HER AWAY FROM ME, JUSTIN, DO SOMETHING, YOU'RE THE PREFECT!!"
Justin replied, "She is your sister. Besides, you should be enjoying the day with your fam--"
Danny then popped in and told him that Sydney was on the phone, but Spencer yelled, "I DO NOT EXIST."
Danny replied, "--so should I tell her you're indisposed?"
Spencer yelled, "I AM A ROCK. AN IMMOVABLE ROCK."
Justin spoke up, "Danny, just tell Sydney that Spencer is busy, er...meditating on the magnitude of this holiday."
So Danny agreed and left.
Jeff then peeked in and told Justin, "By the way, Windsor's outdone themselves this year."
Justin blanched and said, "Don't tell me--"
Oliver looked out the hallway windsor, "...impressive."
Justin grabbed his phone and hit speed-dial number 2 which called Charlie who answered with, "Whaddayawant?!"
"You guys swore that you'd never come near fireworks EVER AGAIN"
Charlie innocently replied, "When did we promise that...?"
"Oh cool your British pants, Hanover, we've got it under control. It's the FOURTH OF JULY. This demands fireworks."
"After what happened last year--"
"WE MAINTAIN THAT THAT WAS NOT INTENTIONAL."
"That crater is still there!! Landscaping hasn't even figured out how to fix that!!"
"YOU'RE NOT EVEN BORN OF THIS NATION, YOUR OPINION DOESN'T COUNT, SO SHUT UP AND ENJOY THE FIREWORKS." then Charlie hung up.
Justin groaned and dropped his head onto the desk.
Danny was staring out the window and saying, "That shipment's got to be in the metric tons."
Ollie took the binoculars from him and said, "And not even the premade ones... I didn't think it was legal to have that much potassium nitrate in a single shipment--"
Justin put his jacket on at that point and announced, "Well, I'm betting that's for the mad scientists and the Caterpillar to manage..."
Oliver kept looking out and said, "I can't identify the twine the twin boys are carrying."
Spencer then came over and told him it was cannon fuse so Justin said he was now going over there.
Hanover's were standing at the window for ages, and when asked what they were doing, Justin replied that Oliver had been outside, not moving for 15 minutes. When asked why, Danny replied to look at his book. Oliver is sitting on the grass, reading, but he is keeping perfectly still, a butterfly perched lightly on the top of his pages.
Merril thought it was very sweet. Oliver was only moving his eyes, looking from the book to the cabbage butterfly that didn't seem too bothered. Danny explains, "He's reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." the butterfly then flutters away and without looking up, Oliver said, "...see you, then..."
He has dark hair falling to his eyes.
He has serious stone gray eyes.
He is only 12 years old, although he's a junior.
He has a very high IQ.
He wants to keep to himself as he already stands out enough.
He likes to read.
He enjoys staring at things.
He's a nice boy, but rattled by old experience.
He's an Indigo Child. Or so his guardians would like the school to think. He doesn't really know himself though.
He's very independent.
He likes to know what the world is comprised of.
He likes music.
He sees things differently to everyone else.
Oliver's eyes get so clear when he's lying on the grass and the sunlight filters through the trees. Like he's looking at another world.
He's quite wary.
Oliver liked to stare. A lot. Like he's absorbing information off everything. Some people said it was kind of creepy.
His favorite food is cookies.
