Gothicintheshell: Mary Shelley

 

Tilialouisa: Louisa May Alcott..! Louisa is fine though :)

 

Leebythesea: I’m so happy to have gotten into this class, TBH. I’ve worked with Ms. Christie in the past as a T.A., and she trusted me to put in the work!

 

Quotheraven: I figured that since Junior Writing 201 is such a small class, it’d be good if we all got to know one another.

 

Quotheraven: Has everyone began writing their freestyle poem?

 

Ol_man_n_tha_c: ←--- that’s the name of mine.it’s a ggroundbreaking poem. Gonna score majo points w/ prof nd major points w/ ladies

Quotheraven: You can’t block me, Lenore. I made the chat.

 

Queenliestdead: :(

 

Gothicintheshell: y’all, that was hilarious, but can we please re add him

 

Gothicintheshell: hes in the library with me and he’s glowering at his laptop

 

Gothicintheshell: …….GLOWERING, you guys.

 

Gothicintheshell: he’s like. About to riot.

 

Currerbell: this is his villain origin story.

 

Queenliestdead: lol

 

Leebythesea added Ol_man_n_tha_c to “i can’t believe you’ve done this”

 

Ol_man_n_tha_c: AND ANOTHER THING??? ALL OF YOU SUCK EXCEPTFO R ANNABLE AND EDGAR WHY DIDNT ANYONE ADD ME BACK AND MARY YOURE WRIGHT ACROSS FROM ME I CANT BELIEB THIS

Queenliestdead: ill ask krish

 

Leebythesea sent a DM to Quotheraven

 

Leebythesea: Hey, “Dad”! That was honestly so funny in the chat, today. I feel like, with so much personality, it’ll get out of hand quite fast, but I can’t wait to get to know everyone.

 

Quotheraven: Same here! :)

 

Quotheraven sent a DM to Queenliestdead

 

Quotheraven: NVM!!! It’s all fine now.

 

Quotheraven: Do you think that - this year, if I work up the nerve - she would say yes if I asked her to go out with me?

Chapter Text

Remind: Ms. Christie’s Junior Writing 201 Class Announcement

Ms. Christie:

“Juniors, at our third class (October 27), your Co-Pair and Contrast assignments will be due. The assignment is to pair up with another member of the class, select a poem, and separately analyze it. Then, meet to compare your notes; an essay will be due on October 30th that shares both your thoughts on the poem, and how you interpreted elements differently. During class, we’re going to work on analyzing more poetry, but as a group.

“I’d also like to apologize for class being cut short - the fire drill was unprecedented, and likely will not occur in the future.”

Queenliestdead sent a message to “june, you’re writing to owen”

Queenliestdead: hmu if you uhhhhhh wanna pair up bc

Queenliestdead: i missed class today

Queenliestdead: AND i missed the drill??? smh im never skpping to visit guy again

Quotheraven: Don’t fret, Lenore. All that happened was that someone pulled the fire drill in our building and we had to wait outside - in the rain - for the all-clear. That took, like, ¾ of the class. So, Ms. Christie told us to choose partners outside of class.

Quotheraven: Does anyone have any preferences?

Quotheraven: Of one another?

Quotheraven: To work with?

Wild(e): sorry yall marianne and i paired up during the drill

George4real: GEORGE AND OSCAR, FOR THE WIIIIN

Gothicintheshell: i hate you for knowing that

Quotheraven: THEY ASKED ME. Apologies for being educated on one of history’s greatest tragedies.

Queenliestdead: yall are writing bout the tit?anic?

Hemyway: yEES

Currerbell: she said it could be about anything, and this is going to be….something

Leebythesea: Good luck guys!

Leebythesea: Edgar - can I swing by your dorm in a bit to work? Sorry, I dropped the ball on this one!!

Quotheraven: Of course! And we both did! Don’t blame yourself.

Quotheraven: You didn’t really drop it though, I fully did.

Leebythesea: It was a mutual mess-up.

Quotheraven: Sorry to bother you, but is it true you’re going to Boston over Thanksgiving?

Leebythesea: You remembered that! Yes, why?

Quotheraven: I am too!

Quotheraven: Not spontaneously, of course. I meant that I’m going to visit with my foster family there over the break.

Leebythesea: You grew up in Boston too?? That’s awesome!

Quotheraven: It is!!!

Leebythesea: And you’re adopted?

Quotheraven: No.

Quotheraven: Not formally, or anything - there’s all this stuff with my parents. I was born in Boston, things happened, and my younger sister and I went to live with my foster parents in Virginia. It’s an awkward situation, kind of, because I was really introverted as a kid and iced them out a lot growing up. They moved up to New England right when I left for college, and my sister goes to college there. My older brother lives in Maryland, so he’s coming to visit, too. It’ll be nice to be together.

Quotheraven: Yikes! Sorry for oversharing, you definitely didn’t want to know all that.

Leebythesea: Anything you need to get off your chest, I’m here for! I hope you have a great break. Maybe when we’re up there, we can hang out in the city.

Quotheraven: Absolutely! We can look at old libraries and whatever else writing majors are supposed to do in big cities.

Leebythesea: Haha, right!

Leebythesea: I’ll be over in a few minutes, okay?

Quotheraven: Sure. And thank you listening/reading my life story.

Leebythesea: It’s a very compelling one. Maybe we change a few names, few details...short story writes itself?

Quotheraven: Miss Lee, your genius astounds me.

Quotheraven: LENORE!

Queenliestdead: uh huh

Quotheraven: Lenore and I just had a very successful and friendly conversation. It was GREAT.

Queenliestdead: oH mY!!! 

Quotheraven: Lenore, could you please be supportive??

Queenliestdead: im very happy for you,, what else do u want. u texted some1. u do that all the time bc you suck at social interactions

Quotheraven: Do you always have to be so unsympathetic?

Queenliestdead: ok well im happy that ur talking to her!! good 4 u but

Quotheraven: But?

Queenliestdead: like

Queenliestdead: shes got a boyf man. it’s one thing to want to be good friends w her but this is like obsessïon level

Queenliestdead: it feels like ur overdoing it

Queenliestdead: don’t b the rom com “nice guy” and only get close 2 her so u can date her

Quotheraven: This isn’t obsession, Lenore, it’s actual friendship. I want us to be friends, I really do!

Queenliestdead: whatever ya say

Quotheraven: Well, you were pretty distraught about someone not texting you back earlier today. And you have a boyfriend.

Queenliestdead: this is for a GRADE!!! sorry for carin about good grades….

Quotheraven: Okay, but that’s what I’m doing too. Friendship, Lenore.

Queenliestdead: k!! gr8!! we both just love being friends w people and thats great. thats GREAT for us both.

Quotheraven: Okay.

Quotheraven: But I don’t think I overdo it. I don’t send multiple texts to a whole group just to get one person’s attention.

Queenliestdead: okay ya know what mr receipts
