[[caption-width-right:250:[[BrokenBird Mizore]] and [[NewTransferStudent Dan]], [[TeacherStudentRomance the lead characters.]]]]In October 2009, Chaosbahamut123 submitted the original version of Thawing Permafrost. It was a tangle of [[AuthorAvatar Author Avatars]], WishFulfillment, and [[PlotHole Plot Holes]]. The series spanned a total of two complete fics and one incomplete fic.

Cut to April 2011, and Chaosbahamut123 (now WanderingWordsmith) submits a rewrite of the original Thawing Permafrost. There were improvements. Lots of them.

[[{{Continuation}} Set three years after Season I]] of the [[{{RosarioToVampire}} Rosario+Vampire]] manga, the plot centers around a new, British, human transfer student named Dan, who comes to Yokai Academy [[spoiler: because he wants to study abroad and his parents refuse to fork out the money for an international college]], and has no idea about the existence of monsters. There, he meets his homeroom teacher Mizore Shirayuki, who finds out that he is human after one lesson with him. After a meeting with the Chairman, Dan is offered the chance to return to the human world, or stay under Mizore's guardianship. He opts for the latter, and his adventures and mishaps [[IncrediblyLamePun snowball]] from there.

Currently ongoing, the new series contains the old gang from Rosario+Vampire and a new cast, with some taken and developed from the original Thawing Permafrost. As of [[DoorStopper chapter thirty-five]], the third story arc is finished, and Thawing Permafrost is moving into the final arc of the book.

----
!!''Fanfic/ThawingPermafrost'' provides examples of:

* AccidentalPervert: Dan, Mizore, the school bus and forward momentum [[HilarityEnsues do]] [[PantyShot not]] [[ArmorPiercingSlap mix.]]
* ActionSurvivor: Dan has had lucky breaks against two villains ([[spoiler:Kotsubo and Masumi]]), despite his reluctance to fight them. Directly, at least.
* AerithAndBob: Played straight. There's Kaiyo, Kia, Mizore, Masumi, Kotsubo and... Dan. Justified, because he's an international student.
* AllGhoulsSchool: Yokai Academy. Bar ''[[NewTransferStudent one]]'' student.
* AnIcePerson: Mizore [[MeaningfulName Shirayuki]].
* AnotherDimension: Yokai Academy is situated in the Borderlands, a dimension literally on the edge of the Human World.
* AuthorAvatar: Averted - almost. In the original Thawing Permafrost, Dan was a direct port of the author into Rosario+Vampire's universe. In the rewrite, he's been developed to stand alone as his own character, though trace elements of being an Author Avatar (like the name) still exist.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: [[TheDitz Nekonome-Sensei]], and Mizore can apply as well.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Dan fancies himself as a good judge of character, [[spoiler: and actually guesses Mizore and Kotsubo's foul past]]. When put into a dangerous situation, however, it doesn't work nearly as well.
* BadassBoast: Ruby and, shortly after, Kaze.
* BeautifulDreamer: Dan [[spoiler: sees Mizore as this]], when she sleeps next to him during the Summer Break arc.
* TheBigGuy: Iwao. [[spoiler: Important because he is befriended (through means only hinted at) by Kia, therefore becoming Dan's friend.]]
* BloodyMurder: Kaiyo's true form [[spoiler: as a Kuchisake-Onna]] turns the blood from her scars into very large claws.
* BodyHorror: WW took the Kuchisake-Onna from Japanese folklore and tweaked the being's true form.
* [[BoyMeetsGhoul Boy Meets Monster]]
* BritishAccents: Discussed by Kia.
-->'''Kia''': (Upon hearing Dan say the word 'father') "I knew I missed you for something."
* BrokenBird: Doubles up as a miniature BerserkButton for Mizore, whenever someone mentions a certain Yokai graduate.
* [[CatapultNightmare Catapult Dream]]: Dan's awakening from an unwanted EroticDream causes him to jolt upright and tumble from his bed.
* [[TheCameo Character Cameo]]: Dan asks a certain uppity, light-brown haired senior if she's seen Mizore around. [[spoiler: [[DontExplainTheJoke It's Koko.]]]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: [[spoiler: Mizore slips into this in chapter 28]], about her friendship - so she says - with Dan.

* CooldownHug: Mizore has given a few of these. [[AnIcePerson Appropriate, all things considered]].
* CoolPet: Pandora the Shikigami.
* CoveredWithScars: Kaiyo.
* CryCute: Mizore, chapter 28. Followed swiftly by:
* CryIntoChest: With [[spoiler: Dan]] in a café lavatory.

* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Mizore, who has blue hair and blue eyes. Also Dan, to a slightly more boring extent, who has brown hair and brown eyes.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Pretty much every female involved thus far.
* CuteWitch: Yukari. Ruby's more... [[OfCorsetsSexy mature]].
* DarkSecret: [[spoiler: Dan was a victim of a knife attack the year before he enrolled at Yokai. Whilst the wounds were minor, the emotional damage was far more serious (especially considering how it was a few of his classmates that did it.)]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Dan has shown flashes of this.
-->'''Dan''': "The only cuisine they serve here probably requires a squeezy bottle and one very soft tongue."
* DefrostingIceQueen: Instead of relying on distance from everything painful to her [[spoiler: including all of the old gang]], Mizore has started to reluctantly rely on [[spoiler: Dan as a LivingEmotionalCrutch]].
* DemotedToExtra: Kurumu and Yukari have been given only small roles thus far, Koko has had only a cameo, Tsukune a mere mention, and Moka has only had a passing reference as part of "My friends, from Yokai."
* DontAsk: After taking Dan [[spoiler: to a MaidCafe and then, misguided by Kurumu, booking them into a love hotel]], Mizore does this to Ruby.
* TheDoorSlamsYou: Happens to Dan in chapter 25.
* DoorStopper: By the author's count, as of chapter 35, Thawing Permafrost now spans 518 pages.
* EmotionEater: Chapter 37 revealed antagonist Kaze to be a [[spoiler: Defacer]], adapted from Dungeons and Dragons lore.
* EroticDream: Dan has a rather pleasant DreamSequence, and is interrupted by the focus of his dream. He is, as is stated, "glad that his jeans were slim-fit."

* FriendshipMoment: [[spoiler: Dan in Kaiyo's room.]]

* GossipEvolution: This is character-specific, but Kia's habit for gossiping leads her to [[spoiler: mistakenly]] believe that Kaiyo is a man-eater.
* [[GossipyHens Gossipy Girl]]: Kia openly admits that she likes to gossip. [[spoiler: This like leads her to believe that Kaiyo is an incredibly dangerous individual to anybody male.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Has struck two characters very recently. [[HotTeacher Guess]] [[NewTransferStudent who]].
* GlasgowGrin: [[http://hatoko-sama.deviantart.com/art/Commission-for-MangaDan-214977049 Kaiyo]].
* GrowingUpSucks: It's implied that Mizore enjoyed her years as a student far more than she does her adult life.
* [[HalloweenEpisode Halloween Arc]]: The Festival Arc has given Mizore's homeroom class the opportunity to work on a Halloween café, inspired by her and [[spoiler: Dan's]] experience over the summer break.
* HarmlessFreezing: It's implied that Mizore does this to Yukari, in order to let Dan visit Ruby.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Iwao.]] How it happened is a NoodleIncident that both [[spoiler: Kia and Mizore know, but neither will disclose.]]
* HotTeacher: Mizore is this.
* IntertwinedFingers: Mizore to Dan when he tells her [[spoiler: about his scars, reversing their relationship as [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Crutch]]/[[BrokenBird In-Need-Of-Crutch]] for one night.]]
* JadeColoredGlasses: [[DarkSecret Dan's past prior to enrolling]] is his (as he justifies it, anyway) reason for being very slow to trust anyone at Yokai. [[spoiler: As of chapter 21, he's only revealed anything of his past to one person.]]
* [[AliensSpeakingEnglish Japanese Monsters Speaking English]]: Averted; Despite that the story itself is written in English, the author recognizes the Japanese setting and occasionally reminds the readers (often through a comedic moment) that all the characters, including Dan, are speaking Japanese.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Dan is Mizore's, and vice versa.
** Ruby is also Dan's, to a lesser extent.

* MotorMouth: Dan, whenever something isn't going as planned or someone says something that catches him off guard, babbles.
* TheMourningAfter: Mizore hasn't gotten over Tsukune choosing [[FirstGirlWins Moka]].
** [[DefrostingIceQueen Dan is]] [[LivingEmotionalCrutch helping, however]].
* NewTransferStudent: Dan.
* NiceGuy: When presented with an opportunity to learn about all of Mizore's past, Dan refuses on the basis that he wants to hear it straight from Mizore, when he deserves to hear it.
* NonActionGuy: Dan is about as useful as a chocolate teapot in a fight. [[spoiler: Except when he pushed Mizore out of the way of some tentacles in an early chapter.]]
* NoodleIncident: How did Kia [[spoiler: get Iwao, Masumi's lackey, to let her and Mizore go?]] Answer: She won't say, and even her answer isn't an answer.
* TheOmniscient: The Chairman is implied to be this. Naturally.
* PantyShot: Dan has bore [[AccidentalPervert witness]] to some of these, but has [[ArmorPiercingSlap suffered]] for them.
* PhotosLie: Mizore shows Dan a photo of all the TrueCompanions being all chummy and happy upon graduation. Turns out, for her at least, [[LoveHurts things]] [[GreenEyedMonster weren't]] [[BrokenBird so]] [[TheMourningAfter cheerful]].
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: "My line of sight would be a pervert's paradise right now."
* PostKissCatatonia: [[spoiler: Dan has a mild case of this.]]
* [[AscendedExtra Promoted Character]]: Despite being part of the [[BadassCrew News Club]] in the manga, and therefore technically a central character, Mizore is given a lot more focus in Thawing Permafrost (seeing as she's one of the lead protagonists).
* [[PsychoExGirlfriend Psycho Ex-Boyfriend]]: Kotsubo was this in the manga, to an extent, and he's back in Thawing Permafrost.
* PsychoactivePowers: Sort of. When Kaiyo gets worked up emotionally, [[spoiler: her scars re-open. Guess what happens when [[BerserkButton people say she isn't pretty.]]]]
* TheQuietOne: Iwao. Important for the same reasons as above.
* RunningGag: Kurumu treating [[spoiler: Dan as her master]], after the Summer Break Arc.
* ScarSurvey: Played straight, but not post-copulation. [[spoiler: Mizore notices scars on Dan's back whilst he sleeps, and he doesn't say anything until after they're booked into the love hotel.]]
* SchoolFestival: Is rapidly approaching in the [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Festival]] Arc.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Yukari: “Is that invidiousness I detect somewhere in your voice, Mizore?”
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Played straight [[spoiler: by Dan and Mizore]] in the MaidCafe.
* ShutUpKiss: [[spoiler: Also Dan and Mizore's FirstKiss, although she did tell him to shut up first.]]
* ShoutOut: [[Main/TheGraduate "Are you seducing him, Miss Shirayuki?"]]
** [[http://www.mangareader.net/320-22385-16/rosario-vampire/chapter-36.html Kurumu working at a maid café has its roots.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: Kaiyo is this upon her introduction, although she is quite rude to anyone who tries to pull her out of the scenery.
* SleepCute: Mizore in the Summer Break arc.
* StealthHiBye: Mizore's habit of climbing through Dan's window to either say hello, wake him up, or deliver lollipops is treated as a normal thing.
** On the flipside, Dan sneaking into Mizore's room to talk causes her to [[FreakOut freak out]].
* StiffUpperLip: Subverted. Despite being British, Dan is one of the least imperturbable characters in the whole fic.
* StrangerInAStrangeSchool: Dan is the only human in Yokai Academy, and whilst there is no direct, lawful punishment for him if this is found out, the student body will be most likely not pleased if word does get out.
* TeacherStudentRomance: [[spoiler:Dan currently has a one-sided infatuation with Mizore. The romance blossomed in the Festival Arc.]]
* ThanksForTheMammary: The prelude to AccidentalPervert.
** And [[AccidentalPervert again]] in chapter 27.

* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: [[spoiler: Mizore is forced to book herself and Dan ''into a love hotel''. Happens again in her room after hours.]]

* WitchSpecies: Ruby and Yukari.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Mizore and Kurumu.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Mizore's café costume, and Kaiyo's post-Summer uniform.
