OMG @Pearline, it keeps happening!!!

I was with Kyle again last night, and I was trying to tell him about my shapeshifting symptoms but I was too shy. It's also hard because my symptoms only seem to manifest when I'm around him. And the closer I get to him, the more my symptoms increase. It's like, uncontrollable.

So, last night, when I was trying to tell him how I felt, it's like my tongue got extra big in my mouth and I couldn't talk... and I could feel the shapeshifting starting to happen, so I started to take off my shirt. I just couldn't help it! It's like the shapeshifting possesses me when I'm around him.

But, it totally freaked Kyle out! He said it was "happening too fast" by which I assume he means the shapeshifting transformation process, and he got up all flustered and left.

What am I going to do @Pearline??? Is there some antidote? I'm still too embarrassed to go to the infirmary to see the nurse.

I don't know what's happening to me. I've never felt like this before, but since last night, there have been these... changes in me. Like things are growing inside of me, and out of me. And weird urges. Urges like I've never felt before.

I think I got the shapeshifting virus. Is there a shapeshifting virus? Can you catch it?

I was with Kyle. And it turns out he's really sweet. By the end of the night we were, you know, kind of hanging out in the seats along the back wall? And he only smelled a little bit like cigarettes, and we were like, getting to know each other, and suddenly my tongue shoots out of my mouth and right into his ear!!! Like it had a mind of its own!!

That kind of freaked Kyle out. He had to get up and leave.

See? I think I must have the shapeshifting virus or whatever and it's starting to make weird things grow out of me. Does anybody else have this? What if it starts getting worse, and, I don't know, I start to do other weird stuff?

If I go to the infirmary and ask the nurse, will it go down on my permanent record? I don't know what to do. But it's still all @Pearline's fault.

I'm going to hide in my room the rest of the weekend.

"Are you... shifty?"

I discovered that is not the way to break the ice with the shapeshifters. I saw them hanging out in the parking lot behind the dorms. It was getting dark and in the shadows it was hard to make out what shapes they were. But I walked right up to introduce myself and spoke to Kyle who had on a leather jacket and his hair was slicked back and he had a toothpick in his mouth and was spinning a yo-yo.

"Yeah, who's askin, doll?"

Who calls anybody "doll?" Was it some kind of slang they used for "straights," or whatever they call non-shapeshifting peoples?

And it wasn't a toothpick, it was a cigarette!!!

"Uh, I'm Sarah, and, uh... I was wondering if you were going to the Science and Shapeshifters dance on Friday, because, see, there's @Pearline, and she's in charge of the decorations and she want---"

"The dance? This Friday? You betcha, doll. Pick 'ya up at 8!"

Then the House Mother came around the corner and they thew out their cigarettes and faded off into the shadows.

And that's how I ended up getting a date to the dance. But I didn't even want one! And what will I wear? And what if he wants me to do... shapeshifty things?

Oh no @Pearline this is all your fault!

Ok @Pearline sounds like you've got the decorations all covered they sound great. Even though I am new at school I will do my best to find out where the shapeshifters hang out and make friends with them. But I think the problem is they look just like you and me right? In that case there are some hanging out outside my dorm right now I will try and talk to them and figure out their moves and lingo.

I'm really new here but have been reading all the posts and I'd like to help you with decorations for the dance, @Pearline. What do you need? Do you have a budget? And what specifically are you doing to address the needs of the shapeshifter community?
