Curioser and curiouser

“Odd is probably a compliment too, if I say it,” Ness nodded, finding that so far, Evelyn seemed to be a likeable person. Someone who valued words like ‘odd’ and ‘interesting’ over and above ‘nice’ or ‘pretty’ was definitely good company to keep.

“Yeah, I have an older sibling. It helps,” Ness nodded, when Evelyn pointed out the advanced Sonora knowledge skills on display. The remark was uttered casually but Ness was pretty pleased at being described as ‘knowing a lot.’ ‘Knowing a lot’ was up there with ‘interesting’ and ‘odd.’ “I basically spent the whole of summer asking about school. I mean, not that I didn’t before, but I asked a lot of extra questions given that I’d actually be coming here this year. Finally. Kir is fifth year now, so it feels like forever that he’s been able to come here and I’ve been waiting.

“Definitely Aladren,” Ness replied, regarding house aspirations. “Like… I’m sure the other houses are nice and all,” this wasn’t strictly true because the other houses actually all sounded kinda lame in one way or another, or at least like being put there would be a very bad match, personality-wise. Still, even without Kir’s level of Teppish diplomacy, Ness knew that calling out the rest of the houses as ‘meh’ was not a great move. “But Aladren definitely feels like it would suit me best. How about you?”

OOC [out of character note] - Good work so far, keep it up. It’s nice to have you and to be getting to know Evelyn. I’m also one of the staff here, so just a reminder that posts should be 200 words. If Evelyn doesn’t feel like chatting that much, try sharing more of her thoughts - e.g. what she thinks of Ness - or fill in more about her background. Looking forward to your reply :)

    Evelyn smirked and then smiled. "Yeah," she said. "I guess so." Evelyn hadn't said it before, but she supposed it was actually pretty cool that they were finally at Sonora. It was certainly better... more

            Evelyn smiled. And then she kept smiling. "I think you're a pretty good person, Ness," she decided, grateful that growing up in the company of adults made it easy enough to be forthcoming about such... more

              “Thanks,” Ness beamed, really genuinely touched by Evelyn’s compliment. Ness felt like a good person - a believer in all things good and fair, like equality and human rights and stuff. It wasn’t... more

                Things were looking up and Evelyn was pretty satisfied she wouldn't be kicked out anytime soon. She was still dreading the idea of sitting in class and just hoping she could produce some acceptable... more

                  “Ok, hope you’re sitting comfortably,” Ness grinned, when invited to go first in the telling of life stories. “I grew up in Vermont. It’s pretty nice. There’s trees and mountains and the world’s best ... more

                    It was a good story, and one Evelyn almost regretted learning. She had already known that she was a boring sort of person with a boring sort of family, but now there was proof even in the person she... more
