Phew, I'll lower those defenses then

Remington’s suspicions were correct. The new transfer, named - ...well, he didn’t tell her what his was. Anyway. Drew’s dad told the other student to seek her out for a tour. That was excellent. Remington very much wanted to be prefect next year for Draco. She knew there wouldn’t be a ton of competition. Draco was such a quiet house that it seemed as though there were only four or five Dracos at any given time.

His reaction to accidentally calling her a boy made her laugh. “It’s okay,” she responded, “It’s not it’s a normal name. Remington sounds more like the name an old conservative family gives their prized poodle than, yknow, a baby.”

She didn’t hate her name, even though it wasn’t the best around. It was memorable. She doubted that college admissions specialists would forget the name Remington when reading over her application. That would be impressive enough, and she had a few more years to get it to be the best it could be. Still, it wasn’t a cool name. Remington was thankful that she’d not spent her elementary school years in a classroom for very long. She moved around too much with her mom’s job for any kind of mean but clever names using hers. People at RMI seemed more focused on things like transphobia and racism than names, so she got to skip that milestone she really thought would happen someday.

Probably shouldn’t mention some of those issues to the new student right away.

“You didn’t upset me!” She made sure whatshisname knew that. “I can answer questions, tell you about our house, whatever you need. I’ve been here since my first year, so I know some things. But I don’t know your name. What is it?”

        • Good! - Remington, Wed Oct 10 17:16
          Remington almost rolled her brown eyes when he complimented her name. Not in an annoying way, but in an amused way. She caught herself before she did, though, and chose to just smile and shake her... more

              “Sure!” Remington said cheerfully. “I always like having people to study with. I’m currently in a lot of classes, so I’m pretty sure we’ll have some kind of overlap. She did Cultural Studies studying ... more
