Myfanwy Owen
Politeness is
Thu Feb 1, 2018 10:19

To start with, Myfanwy had only taken Magical Sciences because none of the other elective classes had really sounded all that interesting to her, mostly because they seem to focus a lot on reading the future, which wasn’t something Myffi believed humans were supposed to do, nor very talented at. She had since learned there was more to classes than just that, but they all had connections with trying to figure things out in a range of touchy-feely ways that even Muggles tried to do sometimes (probably with even more limited effects). The sixth year preferred hard facts and evidence, so she was super happy that Magical Sciences turned it to be much more suited to her outlook, anyway. She didn’t particularly excel in the class, because it was usually lots of reading and writing, and Myffi learned better through experience and interaction, but it was always interesting, which is what really mattered.

Professor Taylor was okay, too - not always the most approachable person, and didn’t always want to hear other perspectives during class time, but if Myffi didn’t understand one way of teaching, she felt like the professor tried to explain it in a way that made more sense. She was quite strict, though, especially when it came to robes, and Myfanwy preferred to be in bring colours rather than drab grey. Today her uniform covered a rainbow tie-dyed t-shirt dress, although her multi-coloured shoelaces were still visible, and some bright friendship bracelets on her wrists. Her dark, straight hair was in two low pigtails at the back of her head, and she wore her round, rose gold framed glasses as usual. An organic cotton tote was on one shoulder as she paid rapt attention to the introduction for what promised to be one of the rare practical classes; that made her excited for the lesson. She ventured answers to a couple of questions, and she even got them right, which put her in an even better mood.

When the instructions had been given, Myffi was buoyantly cheerful and perhaps a little over excited as she skipped to the nearest crime scene and pulled he binder, before remembering that they were supposed to have selected partners first. Never mind, she could do that now, it wasn’t like she had even opened the room yet anyway, and she spun on her heel only to be stopped in her tracks by her yearmate Kaye. Maybe Kaye was a little over excited too, because she sort of snatched the binder. She didn’t need to do that, Myffi was prepared to share.

“I just grabbed the closest one to me,” Myffi answered with a lopsided shrug and a bright smile on her face. “I didn’t think it would matter too much. I’ve never done any crime scene investigating before so it’s not like I was trying to find one that would be easier or anything.” she might have tried to do that, if she was concerned about grades, but honestly she was just here to learn and there were lists of helpful spells and stuff that she had glimpsed in the binder before Kaye took it from her. She hadn’t seen much else though. “I hope it won’t be too gruesome. I totally get squeamish if there’s too much blood, even fake stuff.”

  • Is perfect even a thing? - Kaye Packman, Tue Jan 30 18:46
    Kaye Packman and Professor Lorainne Taylor had an interesting relationship. Most of the professors at Rocky Mountain International had gotten used to the Aquila by this point. They knew that she had... more
    • Politeness is - Myfanwy Owen, Thu Feb 1 10:19
      • Not only did Kaye get a potentially boring room, she got a partner who practically came with a guarantee to annoy her. She’d done her best to actually avoid the – whatever she was – girl. Kaye didn’t ... more
        • I think you picked me - Myfanwy, Tue Feb 13 07:43
          Kaye had her own style, that was sort of a gothic-punk look designed to make people think she didn’t care, but from her colour-matched eyebrows to her perfectly manicured nails, Myffi could tell the... more
          • And what a mistake it was - Kaye, Sat Feb 17 20:34
            If Kaye knew she would be working with Myffi today, she would’ve made a bet. How long would it take before Captain Planet started talking about the environment? Ruben would have taken the bet. Emmett ... more
            • I have feelings, you know - Myffi, Tue Feb 20 11:17
              “There’s no need to be coarse,” Myffi pointed out to Kaye, her expression pinched into an distasteful grimace as the other girl swore at her twice, using words and also a hand gesture. Myffi took the ... more
              • Feelings are lame - Kaye, Fri Mar 2 21:10
                “Oh, but it brings me such joy,” Kaye responded quickly. She’d be as coarse as she’d like, thank you very much. It was part of her freedom of speech, yes, and it made her happy. Sometimes Kaye didn’t ... more
                • Denial is a waste of time - Myffi, Sun Mar 4 11:15
                  Kaye made some fingerprints appear, and Myffi took out an A4 sized notebook (made from recycled paper) from her bag. She roughly sketched out the crime scene and began numbering where they had found... more
