Despite the roudy nature of Fairy Tail, its lack-luster or grimy exterior of what it had become... a few gems still shined like diamonds in the ruff. One of them was the newly appointed S-class member Zachary Sirius. Having been a modest and studious Celestial Wizard, he had grown due to many trials and was now considered S class. He even learned new magic to aid him and allow him to support his spirits better...
... however, he still had issues with other members of the guild giving him a hard time. The rugged guys, drunk on ale and laughing as the mercenary image this guild had become, made Zachary stand out being a more studious and cleaner mage. His company of spirits and the new, cute Astral made him even more so. As he read up on magic from the "Cosmonomicon" he discovered from the wizard's tower, he listened to the racket going on in the guild and tried to drown it out. On the table with him was Astral, the Star Fairy, eating some biscuits from the guild kitchen. Beside Zachary on the other side, was his old friend and familiar-- Ruby Carbuncle, aka Ruby. The two little critters would play-fight with one another, but as of now, the two were getting along. Ruby was more of a beast-type spirit, not capable of communicating like Astral did or Zachary for that matter. But he was a long time companion to Zachary since long he became a Fairy Tail Wizard.
He had only shown the book to one wizard up till now, Aven, and now he was seriously studying up the other spells this book contained. It was among the most powerful, a branch of Lost Magic that related to "Heavenly Body" magic, and ones he was trying to learn carefully. The warning Aven gave him to not take any of the spells lightly was engraved into his mind, as he knew some spells and techniques come with hefty side effects and costs, some even the caster's life.
He was researching a special one-- how to 'transform' parts of his body with cosmic elements, he was interrupted by a call from one of the guild's upper members. "Hey Zach!" he called, causing Zachary to look up from his book. Astral dropped his biscuit and Ruby's fur went on end at the shout. "Guess what? The Guildmaster is calling for you." the brutish guy said.
Zachary closed the book as he looked to him. "Did he say what about?" he asked.
"Naw-- just to come up now to the second floor," he replied.
A rather immature series of 'oohs' and laughs began to float around the room. "Ooooh, you're in trouble now kid," a drunk fellow bellowed at the bar, causing his friends to laugh.
With a less than amused glare at him, Zachary refrained from sicing his cat spirit Amythest on him to claw him to ribbons. As he sat up from his chair, Ruby ran up to him and quickly hopped up onto his coat arm and onto his shoulder. Astral too floated up and landed on the boy's blue hair. In small fits of jealousy, Ruby would try to 'paw' or 'claw' at Astral's little ribbon ends from his back, making the star urge away and chirp annoyingly at the carbuncle. The cute-appearance of it all made the guild members laugh, and Zachary just marched away grumpily at their attitude.
He soon reached the stairs and walked up towards the second floor, where the guild's master was waiting for him...
