Oh geez, thank you very much

Georgia knew it wasn’t very prefectly to sit in the back row. She was supposed to be all responsible, keen bean, example to the rest now. But there were some days where the anonymity of the back row was appealing. Days where you felt your butt looked extra big, or your hair was doing that thing, and you just wanted to be able to rule out there being anyone giggling behind you because it was hard enough sometimes to concentrate on class without worrying that the people behind were looking at you and laughing. Today was a big butt day. She could never decide whether the school robes were her friend, in that they were kind of shape disguising, or her sworn enemy in that being made to look like a massive shapeless blob helped no one. The first few days of term had her yo-yoing between these opinions until she just stopped noticing so much, and it just became normal again to see herself in them.

She reluctantly took a seat next to Jozua. Him spraying Lily with sparks hadn’t gone unnoticed, but it was the only back row seat left, and - as Lily had seemed fine afterwards - she thought she’d take someone who might shock her over feeling like she was being eyed and found wanting by everyone in the class. She was pondering her tulip, when Jozua took up his wand, and - Georgia leapt back with a ‘yeeshk!’ as he sprayed the desk with both fire and water in quick succession.

And then Professor Skies was there, and Georgia was literally head down minding her own business and trying to pretend the person next to her wasn’t getting a grilling, or at least something less than absolute trust and sympathy, because if it had been her on the receiving end of Skies’ unimpressed face, the last thing she’d have wanted was anyone in the room to acknowledge that it was happening, but then Skies had the nerve to go and drag her into it. What the hell? First off, what was she supposed to do? She had no idea how to stop Jozua setting fire to things or tell if it was on purpose or not. And then, she was being asked to nark on a classmate. Were teachers so oblivious? Did they not remember their own school days, or were all the people who went on to become teachers people who hadn’t hated school and found the whole thing totally awkward? Way to foster fun and friendly relations with her classmates.

“Being prefect just keeps getting better and better,” she mumbled once she was sure Skies was out of earshot. She eyed Jozua nervously. “What’s up with you?” she asked.

  • Was it now?Professor Skies, Wed Feb 14 21:00
    Selina had remained blissfully ignorant of Jozua’s pyrotechnic display in Charms. It being a magical school, such occurrences were not unheard of, especially from him, and if the staff had had to... more

      • A Danger to Himself and OthersJozua, Thu Feb 15 10:43
        Getting dressed down for fire related infractions was old hat for Jozua, but it was somewhat easier to look miserable and contrite when it really was an accident. He’d been hold his wand, even if it... more
        • Yeah, I'm getting that vibeGeorgia, Fri Feb 16 07:26
          “Wow. That’s incredibly unreassuring,” Georgia deadpanned, when Jozua basically said he was wildly out of control and had no explanation. “And… kinda sucky. Hope it gets better,” she added, feeling... more
          • I am kinda scaryJozua Sparks, Thu Feb 22 13:57
            “No kidding,” Jozua muttered when Georgia told him he was not reassuring her. At least she seemed to understand that he couldn’t do the lesson after that . . . whatever that was. “Thanks,” he added... more

              Ok. Hair back to normal. Class back under… something approaching control, she hoped. Jozua raised his hand, and she made her way over. It didn’t escape her notice that there was still nothing but a... more

                Jozua stiffened his back as Professor Skies not only refused to allow him to leave, but also suggested he try the third year assignment. Didn’t she understand that he was too dangerous to trust with... more
