After her class with the teachers of UST-for-great-justice, Petra had gone back to her room, missing her parents and Tiara and feeling kind of low. Since that was completely unproductive, she decided to do something. Sew something, maybe. Or, wait, she had a better idea. Like most of the world, she'd missed out on Missoni for Target, which was tragic, because Target fashion was about as far as her budget extended most of the time. But that was fine, because she was a DIY-er. She'd make her own damn scarf. And then maybe a hat and some armwarmers, too, if she got really excited.

She hauled the box containing yarn and knitting and crocheting stuff out from under her bed and settled down to make critical pattern and color combination decisions. Anyone walking by in the hallway who happened to look in would find Petra sitting on the floor, surrounded by what looked like the scene of a yarn bomb explosion and deep in thought, with this 'Lady Gaga' person Kenzi had introduced her to's music wafting at a respectful-of-her-neighbors volume from her laptop.

((Open door, open post!))

Mercy was returning to her room and heard the music coming from the open door. Her nose told her she knew the occupant, Petra, from the Pride club, so she knocked on the door frame, eyes wide at the colorful yarn everywhere.

"Um, hey... what's up?"

Mercy nodded. "That's me."

She looked around at the mess and smiled. "If there was much more you might never find your way out."

"I get that," Mercy said. "Sometimes when you've taken an engine apart it just looks like a huge disaster, but I know where everything goes in the end."

She laughed. "I wouldn't have the first idea how to turn all of that into a scarf! I learned about cars after I crashed my guardian's Porsche. Sort of community service."

Mercy winced. "Yeah, rebellious youth and all that. In my defense, he did practically dare me to take it out."

She considered that. "Okay, not much of a defense, but it made sense at the time. And he practically killed me for it."

Not that kind of practically killed. Though, being a werewolf, if he'd really wanted to...

"Me too. I was grounded for ages and spent every second of my spare time working on fixing it with Charles, kind of started to like it." She shrugged.

walkswithcoyote: (What)
From: [personal profile] walkswithcoyote
"I read. I run alot and do some working out." She looked a little uncomfortable. "I'm kind of still trying to just figure out how to fit in outside of Aspen Creek. Not always successfully."

Kenzi wandered up a few floors, and down the halls, fingers trailing along the wall as she looked for open doors. She poked her head into Petra's door and said, "Hey. Ooo. Craftiness."

"And Gaga, ha. What do you think?" Kenzi plopped down in the middle of the color explosion, and looked around like she was on an alien planet. A random bit of yellow yard got wound in between her fingers. "And have you seen pix of her shoes yet? I couldn't wear the rest of it, but the shoes...! They're on their own planet of weird."

"She really really did," Kenzi said in amused grossed-out-ness. "Which, it looked good. If you didn't know what it was." She grinned. "I still want the really tall black boots. I could use the inches." She gave Petra considering look. "You could donate some, you know."

"I... do not," Kenzi admitted, studying Petra's feet. "But I'm kinda glad you have bigger feet, 'cause you could loan my big-footed boyfriend shoes when someone took off with his. Thank you for that. Seriously."

"Yup!" Kenzi beamed, winding pink in between the fingers on her other hand. "A few weeks now. And why are they so ... gaaah?" Kenzi rolled her eyes. "I offered to swipe or buy him some, but he was being all honest and saying he could wear your purples until he could buy new ones." She grinned a little. Maybe she wasn't actually mad that Toby had his pride.

"I do not get boys." Kenzi thought of Peter and Topher as well as Toby. "I hang with them, but they're still a mystery... and that was still a cool thing to do. Lots of people wouldn't. Or didn't notice." She wasn't looking at Petra. She was threading green between her thumbs in a cat's cradle. She peeked sideways at Petra. "So I owe you a solid, you know?"
