Art Class with Old Friends  
Who: Cat, Evan, and Izzy
When: Tuesday, after lunch
Where: Art Class
What: Cat and Evan are in yet another class together...
Rating: PG (probably for language)


Evan walked into the art class with his bookbag slung over his shoulder. He was early for a change. He liked art and he'd had the same teacher last year for intro to art. There weren't many other people in the classroom yet. He figured that was because most of them were still in the cafeteria. He'd spent the lunch period out behind the gym with his friends and goofing off.

He took a seat and pulled out his sketch pad, intent on finishing the sketch he'd started in algebra. Somewhere in the distance, he heard the bell ring and students scrambling into the room. He felt more than saw the person sitting next to him. He didn't bother to look up until the person blocked his light. He found himself looking at his old friend Cat McPherson. Was she in this class? How had he not noticed that yesterday? Then he remembered why. Still he hadn't seen her since the period right before lunch, and she'd been distracted in biology.

"Hey, so we meet again," he said casually offering her a smile.

"Also very true. You make sense. A rare thing at this school."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 08:42 pm (UTC)
The shy smile returns, "Thanks." A slight pause, then, "Making sense is rare here?"
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 14th, 2006 08:45 pm (UTC)
"Oh and how." Cat grinned. "This school is like the twilight zone of logic."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 08:46 pm (UTC)
She returns the grin with a smile, all the while wondering how she managed to miss that last year, if Cat is right. "Could you maybe elaborate?"
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 14th, 2006 08:55 pm (UTC)
"Sure." Cat was always up for explaining her logic. "To start with you have Brooke McQueen and her army of skanks. Now normally I'm a 'don't judge a book by its cover' kind of girl but Brooke barrelled into me yesterday and then verbally attacked me. That is not a girl who should have everyone's respect. And Nicole. Well...Nicole is pure evil. Then you have the jocks. Dumbest people in the world. Complete bricks. But again...highly respected. Go figure..."

She turned in her seat, so that she was completely facing Izzy, now speaking much faster and much more animatedly than she had been before. "Then you have your normals, your unpopulars, your druggies, and your freaks. The normals are just that. Normal. Nice every day people. But totally lost in the shuffle. They're not popular so the unpopular kids don't hate them and they're not noticeably unpopular so the popular kids don't pick on them. They're like invisible. And yet they're the only people that make sense. Your unpopular kids -- aka the browns are smart, sassy, fun loving...but social pariahs. The druggies...well...they're an acquired taste. And the freaks are just freaks. And all this without factoring in the faculty."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 09:00 pm (UTC)
She blinks, taking in all that. "Wow... okay. So far I seem to have escaped anyone's notice, so I guess that would make me... a normal? Huh."

Another moment's consideration and a smile, "Sounds like you've put a lot of thought into this. Not that I blame you, it all sounds very interesting. A lot going on beneath the surface, here."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 14th, 2006 09:05 pm (UTC)
"Actually, I try not to think about it. But I hear about it a lot and then things happen that make it so you can't ignore it."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 09:10 pm (UTC)
"Ah... that doesn't sound like fun, at all. I'm sorry for bringing it up, then."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 14th, 2006 09:19 pm (UTC)
"It's really not that big of a deal. Don't be sorry."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 09:24 pm (UTC)
"Okay, if you're sure." A small smile, "I'd hate to alienate the only person I've had a decent conversation with this year."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 14th, 2006 09:52 pm (UTC)
"I think you'll find I'm a little hard to alienate."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 14th, 2006 10:01 pm (UTC)
"Really? Well, that's a relief."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 15th, 2006 05:56 pm (UTC)
Cat smiled, nodding. She stared down at her blank piece of paper and bit her lip. There was no way a brilliant idea was going to come to her just sitting here. Might as well continue making friends.

"So....favorite movie?"
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 15th, 2006 10:00 pm (UTC)
She shifts to face Cat more fully, taking her sketchbook along with her and starting to doodle as she talks.

"Favourite movie? The Princess Bride I think. what's yours"
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 18th, 2006 02:46 am (UTC)
Cat frowned, trying to think. She had a lot, honestly. But if she was forced to choose just one....

"Interview with the Vampire."

Was that too cliche? She felt like it was. The druggie chick obsessed with vampires.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 18th, 2006 06:01 am (UTC)
Izzy is quite oblivious to the drug thing, so it isn't an obvious connection for her, at least. She smiles, "Good choice. I liked that one, too."

A pause as she considers, "Any favourite authors, in particular? Or uh.. bands?"
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 18th, 2006 02:22 pm (UTC)
"Bands are easy -- I like the Switchblade Kittens, Blink 182, Green Day...your typical stuff. Authors...well...that's a bit harder."

She thought for a second, trying to think of the books she read. Thing was, Cat had kind of an eclectic taste in reading. She'd read almost any genre, but was very very picky about the book itself. "I kind of read anything. You?"
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 18th, 2006 07:05 pm (UTC)
She nods, "I haven't actually heard of the Switchblade Kittens -neat name, though- but I like the others. And I guess my music tastes are kinda eclectic, I'll listen to anything, if it's well done."

Despite it being her own question, she has to think to answer the latter half of it, also having some difficulty picking invidividuals. "There are so many, it is hard to pick. I also will read pretty much anything, but I'm kinda picky in that it be well-written."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 18th, 2006 07:10 pm (UTC)
"Me too. I'll read any genre, but not any plot."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 18th, 2006 07:17 pm (UTC)
A slight grin, "Exactly. That's a good way of putting it."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 18th, 2006 09:33 pm (UTC)
Cat smiled back. "I think so."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 18th, 2006 10:24 pm (UTC)
"So... um..." There is another pause as she tries to think up a new subject. "We've covered books, movies, and music... have any hobbies?"
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 19th, 2006 02:18 pm (UTC)
"Not in the organized...look at the neato things I can do way. I read a lot. Write too. Mostly fiction. And I like pulling pranks. Something left over from my childhood."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 19th, 2006 08:23 pm (UTC)
"I dunno, those sound neat to me." She smiles, "What kind of pranks do you do? I'm betting there are some good stories, there."
cat_mcphersoncat_mcpherson on December 19th, 2006 08:48 pm (UTC)
"Well my sister and I started pulling them when we were younger, giving a certain friend of ours a hard time. And then it just went from there. One of my favorites is...well...if you were around school yesterday afternoon you probably witnessed it."
