Well, now things are just getting redundant

Kaye, huh? That was cool. He didn’t think he’d met a Kaye before. A dozen Kate’s of varying form - Katie, Katherine, etc. - but never a Kaye. That was good, because it was a name he could remember, like Holland’s. After switching schools several times, he’d stopped putting much effort into remembering people’s names. If he managed, great, but he wasn’t trying anymore. He was sort of expecting another incident and another transfer at this point, so there wasn’t any point to getting attached to people.

Maverick laughed, which was an accomplishment. “Well, that shroud of mystery thing is pretty enticing,” he confessed, “but I guess it’s only fair to return the introduction, right? I’m Maverick. Sixth year Cetus. And it’s he/him.” Mave never minded being asked as long as it wasn’t done accusingly or in the phrasing, What even are you?, which he had oh-so-tactfully received (and then oh-so-tactfully punched somebody in the face for, #sorrynotsorry). He knew his identity was something most people weren’t used to (damn cishet scum of the world), so he stuck out and confused people. The ones that were threatened by him somehow - as if his queerness attacked their not-queerness - were his favorite. In any case, he definitely preferred to be asked respectfully than misgendered accidentally.

“So, how do you like things around here?” he asked genuinely. Maverick had already gotten Holland’s opinion on RMI life, but it couldn’t hurt to ask for another, especially while he’d found someone who was tolerable to speak to, a phenomenon he did not expect to repeat with much frequency. Kaye was funny and cool, not to mention stylish. While his interactions with the rest of the student body had been rather minimal thus far, he had little doubt that Kaye was among the best the school had to offer.

    Kaye got a sorry out of the transfer. She was pretty sure they didn’t mean it, but it was one of those things. The Aquila didn’t care too much about the apology. The little snacks were somehow still... more

      • So the transfer had a name. Maverick was a sixth year in Cetus, and now Kaye knew his pronouns. The mystery, for the most part, was gone. Well, the beginning layer was no longer a mystery. Kaye... more
        • Any suggestions? - Maverick, Sun Jul 23 22:43
          Oh, so Kaye was a transfer too. Mave wouldn’t have suspected that. So far, she seemed to him to both fit in and stand out in a way that someone only could at a hodgepodge-y school like this one. RMI... more
          • I have several - Kaye, Thu Jul 27 22:09
            “Okay, well, we have to go to Pearl Street,” Kaye decided. She loved it there. It probably was Kaye’s favorite part of Rocky Mountain International. There was food and pick pocketing challenges and... more
            • Choose one and elaborate. - Maverick, Sat Aug 5 19:18
              “Sure, sounds good,” Mave agreed. He wasn’t particularly opposed to playing hooky even if the professor were more attentive to attendance. After all, what were they going to do about it, kick him out ... more
