Claudia Dubois
Calling all female students: We deserve this
Sun Jun 16, 2019 15:22

Boys were trouble. Girls were by no means perfect, but their male counterparts seemed to be responsible for considerable upset just recently, both for Claudia and for her friends: from slurs and hexes to fighting with fists and upsetting girls with confusing kisses. Boys did all this stupid stuff even without societal pressures of physical perfection or the mockery of biology playing havoc with their mind and body every Merlin damned month.

After barely any consideration once the idea occurred to her, Claudia decided to hold an event designed to pamper and relax RMI’s female population. In the Edwards rec center she’d arranged a number of loungers and low tables. The sixth year had ordered the entire collection of Colovarious polishes and a small selection of cosmetics from Veela’s Vanity, and a vast quantity of face masks, foot scrubs and moisturising lotions from Spell, Look & Candle. Tastefully sophisticated fliers advertised a relaxing spa experience, welcoming all girls to enjoy free treatments or a makeover.

Strictly speaking, boys were not welcome, but Claudia did not know whether she would actually turn away any who decided to join them. It would depend on the boy in question, perhaps. She categorically would not turn away any girls. Claudia did not expect Dakota to come (and didn’t mind her absence at all. She was no longer afraid of her, but genuinely failed to see how anyone found anything to like about the fourth year) but she would be as welcome as any other female student.

With a new bathing suit - nude, covered liberally in swirls of gold glitter - concealed beneath a pale green wrap around dress patterned with daisies, Claudia was dressed a great deal more casually than usual. Her dark blonde hair was secured simply in two pigtails either side the nape of her neck, and she only wore magically waterproof brown eyeliner and mascara, keeping her face free of other cosmetics in case she decided to use a mask.

“Help yourself to any products,” she invited girls who joined her. She would not offer to deliver any treatments herself - that was beneath her, even if she could tolerate touching other people’s hands and feet. No, thank you - but would encourage others to do so if they desired.

      So the thing about having an older sister like Jenna was that she really, like really didn’t like being told what to do. To be fair, all the Fitz kids were kind of like that but Jenna had it in... more
      • But I am. - Quinn Walker, Mon Jul 1 20:58
        A spa day at RMI sounded fantastic. A spa day without boys was even better in Quinn Walker’s mind. The fact that she had since coming to RMI enjoyed the company of Jesse and that was about it so far... more
        • Time for target practice? - Jace, Wed Jul 3 06:36
          Oh snap this girl was full of so much sass. If Jace didn’t have a sassier, scarier older sister then he probably would have been intimidated but he was pretty dang sure that growing up with Jenna... more
          • Not just yet - Quinn, Wed Jul 10 07:41
            Quinn had hoped the boy would be significantly shamed and scurry from the Rec Center with his metaphorical tail tucked between his legs. Yet as Quinn selected a light pink the color of ballet shoes... more
