Georgia slouched into Care of Magical Creatures. She wondered whether it was too much to hope for that one year, just one, she wouldn’t be entering class puffy eyed on a regular basis. For the first two years, her parents increased fighting and eventual break up had been reason enough to cry. She wouldn’t have said she was exactly happy with the situation now - it still sucked, majorly and continually - but it was past the point now where it was liable to make her need to duck into the bathrooms and splash cold water on her face between classes. However, she had a new problem… Farrah was gone. Her best friend, her only really close friend, wasn’t going to be continuing her schooling here. Kellen, who she’d tentatively been getting to know, had also vanished, so she was well and truly friendless. It was pretty sad, as a third year, to be a total loner. Everyone else in their year had friends already. However hard she tried to break into a group, it was probably too late to really be a part of it. And if no one had wanted to be friends with the chubby, clueless, halfblood before, she couldn’t see why having no friends and cry face all the time was likely to improve her odds. She was doomed. She was going to be a social outcast for the rest of her time at Sonora.

And they were studying depression bugs today. Great. She already felt like she’d swallowed a whole cupful of Glum juice for breakfast. Now she got to spend an hour scooping goo out of a cage with someone who would probably rather do it with anyone but her. She hated this. She hated the fact that their lesson was gross. She hated that she had no friends. She hated that her stupid parents had got a stupid divorce. She hated that she was fat. She hated her whole life, and everything in it, and she really wanted to just go back to bed and cry again for a bit.

She pulled on her gloves, not bothering to ask anyone if they wanted to work together. If they wanted to, they could ask her. Except they probably wouldn’t. She grabbed some stinging nettles and began pushing them into a hutch, in order to give the appearance of doing something whilst putting off the moment she would actually have to deal with slime, all the while scowling. Potentially, she was setting up a very simple self-fulfilling prophecy, as her visible grumpiness didn’t exactly make her the most enticing work partner. But, with the smallness of the school and the visible absence of certain members of the class, perhaps someone would find her mood understandable…

          Joe shook his head automatically as he answered Nevaeh’s question, even though the gesture had no real purpose in this context. “I don’t think it’s just you,” he said. “This year is…below my... more

            “It’s not like it’s a difficult process though,” Ingrid argued back, “Sure, I wouldn’t trust the most of the potions we make, but this is putting goo in a jar. The only way to mess up is if we... more
