Most of them do shape up when they receive a glare from the more serious members. In their uniforms, they look the picture of military servicemembers.

...hmm. This school really does have a high content of very attractive people. Regan leans against a railing, making sure she is visible to anyone around and watches the very attractive men in their very respectable uniforms.

Permalink

Very respectable! Some of them fall out of step, but their faculty advisor tries his best to get them back into line. When he can't, one of them barks out, "Don't embarrass yourselves! Stand proud." A few of them grumble but manage this.

Permalink

So impressive. Maybe they'll get the hang of it eventually. She takes out her phone and sends Allison a picture of the group with the words "boys you can actually bring home to mom" attached.

Permalink

Some of them notice this! And glare vaguely disapprovingly. But no one interrupts the march.

Permalink

Well, if they disapprove of that, they're really gonna hate it when she makes them look good with her expensive and not-phone camera.

She starts taking pictures, and then some of the few people still hanging around the school. But mostly of them and their fancy uniforms.

Permalink

Eventually, they begin to disperse. One in particular seems to have taken notice of her. He walks towards her.

Permalink

Pretty and yet vaguely sexist! She lowers the camera and smiles at him. She is the picture of innocence.

Permalink

"Is there a reason you're interrupting JROTC by turning it into a photoshoot?"

Permalink

"You all looked so good, figured you were putting on a show for me. Do you wanna see?"

Permalink

"Now you have me all curious. Maybe unauthorized pictures look better."

He makes no move to look at the pictures.

Permalink

"They definitely add a little edge." She steps closer and tilts the view screen up so he can see it. "I need to edit them somewhat, but I'm really liking how they turned out."

The pictures are very good. All taken at good and creative angles and everyone actually looks very impressive. Professional. She knows how to take a decent picture.

Permalink

Damn. He's not sure why they're good, but he can tell they are good.

"Some of the others might appreciate this. We always could use some good pictures for Yearbook. You could submit it to the team and they'll use them, with credit."

Permalink

Regan smiles up at him. "I will! Maybe I can talk to your instructor and make it official. Then you can all look through them and pick out your favourites."

She does not get to talk photography much at all. Family and wolf stuff usually gets in the way. She tries not to bounce, she is very professional and cool. Yup. Totally.

Permalink

“I know next to nothing about photography. I can introduce you, though. Is now a good time?”

Permalink

"I am very unbusy. Now is good."

Permalink

So he introduces her. The instructor is, of course, grateful for someone to take worrying about photos off his plate. He can talk to the Yearbook people about including her pictures. She might also have to attend some meetings, he’s not really sure, but he’ll put in a good word for her, and she’s in as far as he’s concerned.

Permalink

She thanks them! This is all very exciting and nothing at all to do with family drama and werewolves or her grandad. A completely Regan actively which she is good at and will enjoy doing. The bright happiness in her chest is weird and nice and she can't get the smile off her face.

Permalink

Then that’s that.

”I guess you’re official now. Can I ask one thing, though?”

Permalink

"You can ask however many things you want."

Permalink

“Could you try not to take pictures of me when I can see you? It makes me a little self-conscious, and JROTC isn’t about that.”

Permalink

"Sure, I can do that. I can be very sneaky when I wanna be. It's one of my superpowers."

Permalink

“Uh huh. Enjoy photographing us. See you around, Regan.”

Permalink

"Actually, I have a question. Mr. Boyd is kinda too formal for me. Do you have a first name?"

Permalink

“It’s Boyd. I don’t hate my first name enough to do all the paperwork, but everyone just calls me Boyd.”
