I am too weak to rest.

Evelyn had turned resolutely back to her reflection, figuring she wasn't in Teppenpaw and had no reputation for niceties to uphold. She was Evelyn Stones of the Oregon Jerkfaces and that was just fine by her. Makeup, however, was a topic she could get behind. She turned to Jessica with a more eager expression, happy to have found a relatively safe topic. The ugly black smears on her fingers were irritating her and she didn't have anything suitable to wipe them on, so she washed her hands as she spoke.

"It's not," she confirmed. "Maybelline. It won't come off when I use makeup remover, but tears and--" she made a whooshing sound to indicate just how quickly it came off. "Arvale is great though. I wear a lot of lipstick," she said, pointing stupidly at her colorful mouth. "And Arvale is the best for not drying my lips out. Does your family work for them?"

She was getting excited now, not something she'd expected at this point. "If you go into magical makeup lines, I'll absolutely let you test them on me." She was just self-destructive enough not to care whether they were terrible, but she also had high hopes that a magical cosmetic line would suit her purposes better and if this first year was going to make that happen then Evelyn be damned if she wasn't going to climb aboard that flying train.

              Evelyn grinned her signature dorky grin; she was always excited for makeup and the terrible time she had coming up would certainly be improved by samples. "That sounds good. You must get loads of... more

                  Evelyn smiled, agreeing wholeheartedly with the idea that more friends were always good. Of course, her life hardly reflected that. She supposed that she was prone to recruiting people to her small... more
