Celebrate good times, COME ON
Thu May 3, 2018 16:10

Darlene was feeling a slight flutter in her stomach this evening - not to be confused with the flutter in her heart that she felt around Drew - and decided to head back from dinner a bit early. She told herself that she’d be productive upon returning to her room - cash in on the temporary calm without her flaming nightmare of a roommate mucking things up for her - and maybe work on some homework, but she knew immediately that she was lying to herself. She was definitely not going to work on her homework. She was most likely going to curl up in bed and doodle hearts that said “DK+AT” on her notebooks.

All plans, productive or otherwise, were instantly derailed when Darlene saw the state of the Lyra Common Room. A familiar hodgepodge of gaudy and/or tacky belongings were strewn about the place. For a moment, the second year’s brow furrowed in confusion. What was this stuff doing here? It all definitely belonged to-

Darlene’s eyes widened, mirroring the motion of her smile. She jumped up and down, clapping eagerly as she bounced. “She’s moving out!” she shrieked, although as far as she noticed the only occupants of the room were Kit’s stuff, which, if they had any consciousness at all (maybe that’s where Kit’s went) would have already known that. She was just too excited for rational thought. Which was probably how Kit felt all the time. Maybe the two Lyras had something in common after all.

  • Just spreading some cheer - The Lyra Commonroom, Tue Apr 10 19:51
    It was a few days after the big return to RMI and the evening meal had been about as eventful as one would expect for this time of year. Some students had cracked open a book to study over their... more
    • Celebrate good times, COME ON - Darlene Knight, Thu May 3 16:10
    • That's not cheer - Myfanwy Owen, Tue Apr 17 16:21
      Before dinner Myffi had spoken to Toby about the event she wanted to hold at school later in the term. He was enthusiastically supportive of her ideas, as usual, which is why she had been able to... more
      • It's made me merry - Leopold Harris, Mon May 7 15:19
        Leo was in a good mood. It shocked even him but if there was something that could perk the spirits of a teenage boy it was a big feed and the knowledge that a cozy bed awaited him. Going home for the ... more
        • Your morals are off kilter - Myfanwy, Tue May 8 15:25
          Leo was still kind of grumpy, but Myffi thought he was maybe a lot less grumpy these days than he had been right at the start of term, or maybe she was just getting used to his mood so she didn’t... more
          • Had you asked Leo a few months ago he never would have foreseen a day when he would tolerate Myffi’s company, nevermind a time when he’d actually enjoy it, but here he was finding himself glad to... more
            • No order without chaos? - Myffi, Fri May 11 09:24
              If Kit had moved out, like Leo suggested, wouldn’t she have maybe put her stuff into a more ordered and organised… no wait, this was Kit. This was about right. Myffi liked the second year a lot, but... more
              • Now you're getting it! - Leo, Fri May 11 11:09
                Leo quirked an eyebrow at Myffi. Not weird? Ha. Kit was the definition of weird. Leo may not have been the authority on Kit, his interactions with her mostly taking place on the Quidditch Pitch, but... more
                • I don't support your theory - Myffi, Sun May 13 15:07
                  Leo tried to backtrack on calling Kit (or her friends) weird, which was nice of him. She was a little unusual, but how dull would the world be if everyone was the same? Leo even went on to say that... more
                  • OK. But you're wrong. - Leo, Sun May 13 17:17
                    Leo decided he liked it when Myffi laughed. She didn’t have one of those obnoxious laughs- the sort that seemed too boastful- desperate to convey to everyone just how insanely happy they were- to be... more
                    • That’s your opinion - Myffi, Tue May 15 10:28
                      Was it tough coming in when everyone already had friendship groups? Myffi wasn’t sure. She’d managed to make some friends just fine, although they did all seem to have other people they liked to... more
                      • The right opinion. - Leo, Wed May 16 12:25
                        Leo didn’t know a lot about Wales except that they liked rugby there and had a lot of sheep so he couldn’t say if California was any better but he suspected not. Nothing Myffi had ever said suggested ... more
                        • Myffi nodded in empathy at Leo’s mother wanting him to be homeschooled, too. Myfanwy had the best of both worlds, she supposed, by going to a Muggle school and learning magic secretly at home. It did ... more
