    Summary

    “This is going to be so much fun, Toni,” Martha says distractedly, as she scrawls down her own name. “And this means that I can properly introduce you and Shelby at auditions! You guys can now officially become friends!”

    Across the cafeteria, Toni accidentally makes eye contact with Shelby, sitting at a table surrounded by other glamorous shiny girls in expensive clothes with sleek ponytails, Andrew Johnson next to her with an arm slung around her shoulders. Shelby’s expression is inscrutable, green eyes piercing, and Toni uncharacteristically is the first to break eye contact.

    Yeah, right, she thinks. Friends.

    What a fucking joke.

     

    or, after an accident that results in her suspension from the basketball team, Toni’s social worker encourages her to join the all-girls school production of 'Romeo and Juliet'. There, she meets Shelby.

    Summary

    „I propose an ice breaker,” Shelby Goodkind says, folding her hands in front of her body and smiling at every girl on the plane. “I know it can be borin’ to introduce yourself to a whole group o’ new people, so why don’t we split up into pairs o’ two.” She explains the rest of the rules like they’re five-year-olds who have never participated in this particular kind of torture before, and Toni feels her face break out into a sneer.

    She has no interest in being on this trip in the first place. The only reason she came along was to make sure no one picks on Marty, not to make friends with preppy white girls.

    or, the one where Toni is a werewolf, and how the events of the show might have unfolded differently as a result.

    Summary

    Jamie doesn’t hear the end of it for days.

    If it’s not about how friendly Miss Clayton is––how warm she is, how she’d wrapped Flora in the most wonderful hug on the first day, how big she smiles when Flora or her classmates answer a question right, make her laugh, or really seems to do anything at all––it’s about cool she is, how American, and that? That is something Jamie simply cannot abide.

    “I remember when you used to call me cool,” Jamie sighs wistfully, sliding a bowl of ramen in front of Flora before sinking into her seat across from her. “Not some…” She waves a hand, vaguely, crinkling her nose, “American.”

     

    or: as long as it's mattered to jamie, it's always been her and flora. always, that is, until dani clayton, flora's year four teacher.
