It was early evening and Joan was sitting in her favorite chair, staring blankly at the TV while sipping a cup of hot chocolate.

She was utterly exhausted thanks to an order from a certain someone that she needed to be at a particular store before the sun rose to help some little boy get his dying mother a pair of shoes for Christmas.

If she never had to leave the house on Black Friday again, it would be too soon.

Joan was excited about moving in to the new apartment she and Hoshi had found. It wasn't that she hadn't enjoyed her time at home with her family, it was just that she had gotten used to having more freedom.

Anahata was eagerly sniffing her new dwellings while Joan unpacked boxes.

Joan's room was currently a huge mess. She had two bags she was planning to take on the trip and was trying desperately to make the best choices of what to take.

The fact that there weren't exactly guidebooks available for some of their destinations made it a little difficult.

She also needed to ask one of her friends to take care of Anahata until she returned.

As excited as she was about the trip, today was going to be a little bit stressful.

[door & post are open for anyone who wants to talk to Joan before she heads out for the backpacking trip! pings will be sloooooooooow until after 7p EDT but I wanted to get this up while I was thinking about it. ETA: she will be back for 2nd session though.]

It kind of sucked not having real post-graduation plans yet but Joan was working on it. At least she had a potential roommate and wouldn't have to move back in with her family. And since Hoshi would be commuting via portal, they could live just about anywhere.

So Joan was looking at some community colleges in the Greater DC area, wanting to stick with what she knew and figuring it would be nice to be somewhat close to Fandom. It would help if she had any clue what she wanted to study.

Joan had forgotten just how much energy Jared had. Luckily, they had managed to work off a lot of it by taking Anahata to the park. Jared was thrilled to have the puppy and wanted to know why they couldn't have a dog at home. Unfortunately, Joan had no answer for that.

"Mommy, can I call Daddy?" Jared asked, flopped on the spare bed with the dog's head in his lap.

"Yeah, sure," Joan said, grabbing her cell phone.

After running into Raven in the park and possibly getting a dog, Joan had made a trip to the pet store to pick up supplies and was now sprawled out on the floor, playing with Anahata.

She had handwavily called Liir and asked him to stop by with Makejoy so they could see if the two dogs would get along.

Of course, she was so excited that she left her door open in case anyone else wanted to stop by too.

[expecting one but also open!]

Joan's door was cracked open and there was 80s music playing while she did her hair and makeup for the dance. Just in case any of her friends wanted to stop by and get ready together.

[open for any ladies who want to hang out and do girly things before the dance!]

Joan was sprawled out on the floor of her room surrounded by catalogs and magazines. There was a dance this weekend, she had a date and she needed a dress. She even had permission to use the credit card her parents had given her for emergencies to purchase said dress.

Now all she needed to do was figure out what color and style she wanted.

It had been almost twenty four hours since Joan left the dorms to go for hot chocolate and found Raven a bloody mess on the streets. She hadn't slept much or eaten much in those twenty four hours.

At least she was clean now, having stood under a nice hot shower for a good twenty minutes crying immediately after returning to the dorm. She knew that Raven was safe now and the fear and stress finally made her crack.

Which was why, after she put her most comfortable pajamas on, she padded a few doors down the hall and knocked on Liir's door.

Joan was on her way to the Perk to get some hot chocolate and she was rather annoyed about it. She had been in her pajamas and settled in with her book for philosophy class when someone showed up at the door and told her to go get hot chocolate.

[for one]

In an effort to take her mind off being sad about Penelope leaving Fandom, Joan was cleaning her room from top to bottom and rearranging the furniture.

And, lo, a visitor cameCollapse )

Joan put the list on her desk and left the door open while she continued her cleaning.

Approaching hour forty of Joan and Liir's visit with the Girardis and it had not become an unmitigated disaster. Joan was kind of shocked but totally grateful at the same time.

They had celebrated Christmas Eve the traditional Girardi family way: watching A Christmas Story and drinking hot chocolate. Helen had dragged them all to church on Christmas morning and then they exchanged presents and had a huge dinner. Now Kevin was out with Beth, Luke was off doing whatever and Joan's parents were in bed.

"So, is my family driving you crazy yet?" she asked Liir as they settled on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn and a couple of DVDs.

Joan burst into the room and dropped her duffle bag on the floor. She was pretty annoyed that she had missed class and her shift at work yesterday all because of stupid Andy Baker and his lawsuit.

She looked around in confusion. There was stuff in the room. Apparently she had a new roommate. Great.

Except... some of the stuff looked familiar.

[mostly for the prodigal roomie, but can be open with the SP caveat.]

The weekend wasn't over yet and Joan was already hating it. Adam showing up had been confusing and weird. Liir was having a meltdown over his dead mother showing up. The only thing she was grateful for was that her parents hadn't shown up.

But she needed some peace and quiet, so she was sitting outside, staring up at the night sky.

All in all, being a boy for the day hadn't been terrible. Oh, sure, cheerleading was a little difficult with the changes in her body, but for the most part, Joan's second stint as a boy was decidedly untraumatic.

Penelope happened to be out this evening and Joan was currently relaxing in a pair of boxers and a t-shirt and speculating on whether or not she should, uh, test things out.

Last night there had been tea and talking and cuddling and even (finally) a kiss. And then more talking. During which, somehow, Joan and Liir had managed to fall asleep.

Which meant that when Joan's eyes fluttered open this morning, she was not in her bed. Nor was she in bed alone.

It did mean that she was rather confused and very surprised by the fact that there were streamers hanging around the room and a vase of flowers next to the bed. She wasn't quite sure how Liir had managed that without waking her up.

Joan was taking advantage of having her Mondays off this term by sleeping in. There was a grey kitten curled up at her side.

[for that guy first, then the roomie if she's around and so desires]

Joan's break week had been pretty quiet though she was a bit concerned by the fact that Liir was still a cat. Oh, he was a well behaved cat, but it had been a week and a half.

Either way, they were chilling on her bed and Joan was reading a magazine. She hadn't decided if she was going to hit up the welcome picnic tomorrow or not.

Joan was getting ready for her shift at Covent Garden Flowers this morning. Though, as she fixed her hair, she wondered if Miss Vida would be changing the name of the shop.

Either way, she did still enjoy working there so it didn't much matter.

[expecting one, but can be open, sure!]
