"Best of luck. What're their names? - you're Kanimir, right, Suze's friend told me who-all the Atlantans are but I'm not sure I have them all perfect."

Permalink

"I'm Kanimir; my twin sister is Jaromira. Our sister Didyme will be a freshman when we're seniors, then Sarah the year after her, and Robin two years after that."

Permalink

"Did your folks take... turns picking names...?"

Permalink

"Jaromira is my only full sibling; our stepmother likes more American names than our mother did."

Permalink

"Oh, I see. Is Didyme an American name?"

Permalink

"Didyme is trans and chose her name herself. Her deadname is more Anglotypical."

Permalink

"Huh - is she going to be able to come to school if she's medically complicated -"

Permalink

"She's not going to have any surgery until after graduation and hormone therapy isn't dangerous to interrupt."

Permalink

"Cool. I don't know much about it, I hope it wasn't rude to ask."

Permalink

"No, it's fine. Honestly if she couldn't do anything to medically transition at all until graduation it would annoy her but it still wouldn't make the top ten list of worst things of wizard puberty."

Permalink

"A very competitive list." She pricks her finger, sticks it in her mouth and looks around a little anxiously to see if anything noticed.

Permalink

Nothing appears to have noticed but Kanimir is now holding a dagger about it. 

Permalink

When she doesn't taste blood any more she goes back to embroidering a little more carefully.

Permalink

"That seems like a slightly risky hobby for that reason." 

Permalink

"Pinpricks heal almost right away, it's portable, it doesn't take a lot of energy - I know crochet is classic but I enjoy doing it more and like having crocheted things less. But I do hope to eventually enchant the needle to not stick me."

Permalink

"That makes sense. I finger-knit; it's much worse than anything that actually uses a tool, in my experience."

Permalink

"Huh. Do you know about horrible wall-sitting?"

Permalink

"What's horrible wall-sitting?"

Permalink

"You put your back against the wall and pretend like there is a chair under you and sit on the chair that is not there."

Permalink

"Is it worse than doing the same thing but without the wall? I've heard good, and by good I mean horrible, things about maintaining a sitting position with no support."

Permalink

"I don't know it to actually be worse but it's less likely you will fall in a potentially injurious way; you can just slide down the wall."

Permalink

"That's fair, a lower risk of injury for the same horribleness is a valuable thing. I will try it and possibly--well, not recommend it to the rest of the freshmen, tell Jaromira to recommend it to the rest of the freshmen, her credibility isn't currently damaged."

Permalink

"They won't notice it's your idea?"

Permalink

"It doesn't really matter if it's my idea; what matters is that Jaromira can decide not to pass it along if it turns out to be stupid."

Permalink

"Oh, that makes sense. I wasn't really drilled on larger enclave dynamics at all since it's just me and Suze and they weren't even positive Suze would still be here."
