Are you trying to one-up me?!

Russell Drew: Cetus, transfer, and plague on Emmettís existence. Russell had never been anything but nice, albeit quiet and awkward, but Emmett had strong, decisive reasons for not caring for the boy. To put it simply, he was afraid that Russell would steal his spot in the friendgroup. Ever since Marissa decided to randomly invite the kid along, Emmett had been worried. They were both generally awkward people, he and Russell, not to mention the fat that they were both a year behind the rest of the group. That meant they were vying for the same spot in the friendgroup. That was Emmettís spot.

The Lyra fought the instinctive furrowing of his brow at Russellís attempt at humor. He was already feeling self-conscious about the poor choice to wear this dumb onesie, so he didnít really appreciate the joke about it. ďItís from some Muggle movie, I donít know,Ē he stated flatly. ďItís dumb, I know.Ē

Emmett glanced around idly, checking on his friends. He saw Marissa and Danny talking, which was less than zero percent surprising. Kaye was talking to the new kid, which he didnít like since he had already decided that he didnít like the new kid. And Holland was by the nail polishes, talking toÖ.

Oh, Hell no.

His knuckles curled into fists. Ruben. Emmett hadnít liked Ruben to start with, and then heíd dated Holland, and then - to Emmettís joy - they had broken up when it was revealed that Ruben was a literal insane person who was far too interested in violence. (That was Roseís shtick, nobody elseís.) And now Ruben was over there talking to Holland, like that was a thing that was okay. Not to mention--

ďIs he not wearing pants?!Ē

  • Happens to all of us. Especially me. - Russell Drew, Wed Jul 12 23:15
    Russell had never attended, hosted, or otherwise been involved in a sleepover. The former was because he had never been invited to one - quite understandably, from his perspective; if he wasnít very... more
    • Are you trying to one-up me?! - Emmett, Fri Jul 14 23:27
      • I didn't mean it like that, I swear! - Russell, Sat Jul 15 01:40
        Apparently the attempted joke had also, unintentionally, turned into an insult. Or so it seemed, given Emmettís obviously negative reaction to him. ďOh, no, itís not dumb,Ē Russell protested weakly.... more
        • A likely story! - Emmett, Sat Jul 22 22:13
          ...Okay, so, Emmett had like no idea what Russell was even talking about. Part of that was probably his own fault, because he didnít listen very carefully since he didnít care about what Russell had... more
          • ...I'll just go before I make this worse - Russell, Sun Jul 23 13:02
            At Emmettís insinuation of private clothing-optional sleepovers, Russell could feel his face getting warm again. Oh. Oh . His mouth opened and closed without doing any word things. He didnít really... more
            • Sliding right in - Rose Farnon, Mon Jul 24 09:52
              Thus far Rose wasn't a huge fan of the slumber party she and Marissa had put together. She had gotten dressed up for it - soft gray sweatpants and a lacy teal camisole with fluffy black slippers -... more
              • Slide all you want, friend. - Emmett, Mon Jul 24 18:09
                Wait, what? Holy crap, Russell was doing it. This was gonna happen. Emmet could hardly believe his eyes as the Cetus less-than-gracefully approached Holland and Ruben. This was it. Oh my God. But... more
                • Slip-n-Slide! - Rose, Wed Jul 26 05:55
                  Emmettís startled response made Rose snort in amusement. He was really absorbed in - Rose glanced over at Russell, Holland, and Ruben - whatever that was. It didnít exactly surprise her. With all the ... more
                  • Emmett snickered at Roseís sarcastic affirmation of his not-a-lie. ďI may have made a suggestion,Ē he confessed light-heartedly. ďI didnít think heíd actually do it . Canít say Iím too heartbroken... more
