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 head instead. Rolling eyes could too often be misconstrued as annoyance or frustration or anger, and she wasn’t feeling any of those things. The other student already worried once that he’d gotten on her nerves. She wasn’t about to give him a second opportunity for that kind of concern.

She didn’t think Dwight was that bad of a name, but then she remembered that it had become popular from a show her dad loved to watch. That probably wasn’t the greatest name to have around a bunch of Muggles. DJ was definitely the better choice. “DJ. I can do that.”

He explained that he transferred from Wallowa specifically to take animagus courses. That was so cool! Luckily for her, Rocky Mountain International had everything she wanted in a magical school. Well, besides a Muggle coursework curriculum that would make it easier for her to apply to Muggle only colleges and universities if she chose that path, but that seemed to be non-existent at most schools she could attend. RMI had animagus courses, a Healing internship, tons of other course options, and opportunities for part time work and extracurricular activities to bulk up her resume.

The social situation wasn’t everything she wanted it to be. She half-believed that all of the drama around here was what made her ask her camp friends over for a sleepover. The girls were sweet and fun, but they definitely weren’t the kind of company she preferred. She’d rather spend time with Drew and Anssi, Kit and Claudia, even Dade before everything. It was complicated, though, and she didn’t think anyone would have come over during midterm if invited, anyway. Which she understood, but still.

“Professor McKindy is fantastic. He’s been published, he’s super smart, and he totally lets students work on stuff they’re interested in, as long as they do their Spellwork work,” Remington slightly gushed about the Cetus Head of House. “He’s definitely one of my favorite professors here. He’s just super smart; you totally made the right call coming to RMI for his animagus lessons. I can’t wait till I start mine.”

    DJ smirked when she laughed. It was a cute laugh. She went to go on to say it sounded like prized poodles name. He laughed and shook his head. "It's a unique name I'll give you that but it fits you... more

      • Fantastic! - DJ, Tue Oct 23 09:33
        DJ smiled when she repeated his name. His parents had hated when he asked to go by DJ instead of Dwight. He had been ten at the time and he had just come back from Uncle Riley & Seb’s house where... more
        • Woot! - Remington, Mon Oct 29 17:27
          “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
