Can I just go?

Remington knew that this information didn’t change anything. It just provided new information. However Dade identified didn’t change who Dade was - or was it Dade? When people changed their gender, or started identifying as a different gender, she assumed their names would change, too. But she knew barely anything about Dade’s situation, and she only knew the bare minimum about gender stuff in general. She’d been friendly with Holland and, beyond that, didn’t think much about it.

It was always weird to remember she didn’t know everything. She felt pretty up to speed on most things. The Draco found herself to be open and accepting and understanding, but that didn’t make her knowledgeable. She wondered if any of the books surrounding her had any wisdom they could share or if she’d have to go to the bookstore for that. It was times like this she wished she had super regular and easy access to the internet.

Anyway. What she did or did not know, or only had just a basic amount of information to work with, wasn’t important. It did not change the fact that this was happening. This was real. Drew’s lack of denial only confirmed it (the fact that Dade trusted Drew over her wasn’t a surprise but it still made her stomach feel all twisty and her throat tight for some reason), and she didn’t want to see this explode. The best thing for Dade and everyone involved was de-escalating any possible, well, escalation.

The first problem was that Claudia still wanted to tell Drew’s dad about this. Remington didn’t know as much as she’d like to about all of this, but she was pretty damn sure that outing someone (the way Claudia kinda just did to Remington) wasn’t great. Like, people weren’t into that.

Which Drew confirmed with his side of the conversation. Well, that was the only thing Remington had to contribute. They really could have this chat without her. What was the point of having her here, again? Remington hesitated and looked between the two. If she was still here with no real means of escape, she really should say something. Anything. Just something useful.

“A ceasefire,” she agreed and quickly added, “Even if there wasn’t any plans to do anything to begin with. Just a general ceasefire. Set it in stone.”

Very useful, Remington. Way to contribute. Good job.

    Drew had already decided it was pretty awful that Claudia knew about Dade being trans and had told him, because he was pretty sure that meant he should tell Dade, and he really didn’t want to do... more

        “Wait a sec, I just told you you had nothing to worry about,” Drew argued, “like you asked.” Claudia realized she should have been more specific: she would only accept that Dade couldn’t enter the... more

          Yet again, Drew was overwhelmingly glad that Remington was there and was a normal human person who could look at what was going on and use normal human logic to figure out what they should do. It... more

            What was she supposed to do with this? Really, Remington loved having information. Research was one of her top five favorite activities. Possibly even top three. She loved practical applications of... more
            • Some more than others - Claudia, Sun Nov 18 17:07
              “If you keep refusing to be in the same place as Dade, and Dade keeps refusing to be in the same place as you, then of course you’re never gonna be able to agree to a ceasefire,” Drew said, and... more
