Go To

'Twas a long time ago; Longer now, than it seems,
In a place that perhaps you have seen in your dreams.
For, the story that you are about to be told,
Took place in the holiday worlds of old.
Now, you've probably wondered where holidays come from...
If you haven't, I'd say it's time you begun!
For, the holidays are the result of much fuss
and hard work for the worlds that create them for us.
Because you see now, quite simply, that's all that they do!
Create one, unique holiday, especially for you!
But once, a calamity ever so great,
Occurred when two holidays met by mistake.
And finally, everything turned out just fine.
Christmas was saved, though there wasn't much time!
And after that night, things were never the same.
Each holiday now knew the other one's name!

Many years later, a school stood in a forest near the Holiday trees and 60 students (letters in hand) approached the school with eagerness and anticipation. Most of them had no clue why they were there, only that they were accepted out of thousands of entrants.

Holidays Academy is an academy on DeviantArt, founded by SirScorpius and co-founded by HellzWaltz and zykrinnox, based on the idea of the Holiday Doors in The Nightmare Before Christmas. Students, teachers and faculty interact with roleplay and assignments.


Basic Tropes:

  • Boarding School: Holidays Academy is a boarding school for students from each of the Holiday towns: St. Valentine's Day Town, St. Patrick's Day Town, Easter Town, Halloween Town, Thanksgiving Day Town and Christmas Town.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: It seems to be a common theme that NO ONE CAN FIND WHERE THE TEACHERS LIVE. Little do they know they live near the clock tower— the very place everyone has to look at and pass by no matter where they go in the school or on campus!

    Teachers and Faculty 

Miss Aven O'Connor

Ex St. Patrick's Day Town Teacher
Creator: Robot-fingers

  • High Turnover Rate: This position seems to be given away... a lot. Aven, though, is bound and determined to stick around. But will she? She didn't. Not really a spoiler, but eh.

Mr. Linwood Crawford IV

Easter Town Teacher
Creator: SirScorpius

Mr. Cornelius

Thanksgiving Town Teacher


  • Constantly Curious: He tries not to be offensive with his constant questions though.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Via plants! He can travel between the Holiday Towns, and even into the real world.
  • Plant Person: Wheat for hair, though whether or not he's actually empathetic with plants is yet to be seen.

Mr. Cain N. Kandi

Christmas Town Teacher

Creator: zykrinnox

  • Last-Name Basis: Starts out by calling /EVERYONE/ Mr. or Miss/Ms/Mrs. lastname. Including students. ESPECIALLY students.
  • Psychologist Teacher: Solved a lot of problems already. Told a certain Thanksgiving teacher about his love problems, even solved the homelessness of a certain Halloween student from past years, is helping a certain Valentine's empath with her own empath-related issues... He can basically tell if you're upset just when he walks in the room and from there it's not hard to solve every problem possible. In fact, he WILL solve it.

Professor Christopher Crispin

Real World Studies Teacher
Creator: ProfessorOaky


    The Students 

Ciocci Fiori

  • The Empath: Receiving lessons from a certain Christmas Teacher to help deal with all the extra emotions she's getting at all times in such a freaking emotional place. /glances at the overly-emotional Thanksgiving Teacher

Felis "Felix" Flechette

  • Attention Whore: Will often perform flashy illusion magic for no real reason other than he wants people to look at and appreciate what he does. It's all part and parcel of being a Circus Brat.
