spin_kick_snap: (Watching You)
Kathy hadn't meant to lie to Anders when she said that wouldn't be alone tonight. She'd had every intention of going back to the apartment, letting Raven yell at her for that bullshit note she'd left, and then spend the rest of the evening pass by in a Netflix binge, where she'd watch six episodes of a forgettable anime and only drag herself to bed when the sun came up.

Snipped for emo and music )

"Nobody knows," she whispered to herself. "Not even you. No one knows who I am...."

After class, Kathy and Minako made their way back to Kathy's dorm. Minako immediately resumed the one-sided war she'd declared against the knotted rope that Kathy had bought for her, while Kathy...gingerly sat down on the bed, rather than flinging herself like she wanted to. She was in no shape to go throwing herself around. Bruises everywhere. A cast on her arm. Ribs that still ached a little bit after being taped.

"Stupid, stupid, stupid," she mumbled. "How is anyone supposed to take me seriously--how am I supposed to take me seriously--if I end up out of commission after any fight with someone with powers?"

She turned to Minako, who was too busy defeating her opponent to indulge Kathy's mood. That was fine. Kathy could keep talking to her anyway. "I didn't just lose, girl. I didn't even have a chance against that guy. I'm not like Isabelle who could fight Chase and win. I'm not like Barry who can MacGyver a weapon out of three thumbtacks and a shoelace. I'm not like Gorgon, who just just glare at someone and have them go down cold. Being fast and bouncy does not a superhero make. So where does that leave me, huh? What am I?"

Minako looked up from the frayed rope and gave Kathy a disapproving look and barked at her. Unimpressed puppy was unimpressed.

"What's that, girl? Did Timmy fall down the well?" Minako barked again. That was not what she was saying, Kathy, and you knew it. "Fine, fine," Kathy said, laughing. "Are you saying that--

I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm not gon give up (What?)
I'm not gon stop (What?)
I'm gon work harder (What?)
I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm gonna make it (What?)
I will survive (What?)
Keep on survivin' (What?)
"

Minako's look was exceptionally smug for a puppy. Honestly, Kathy hadn't realized that dogs could look smug, but there Minako was, proving her wrong.

But it didn't matter, because she wasn't done, apparently.

"After of all of the darkness and sadness
Soon comes happiness
If I surround my self with positive things
I'll gain prosperity
"

Oh god, was she telling herself to stay positive in song? This was ridiculous. Entirely ridiculous. She would have said so, but the island decided she needed one last reminder.

"I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm not gon give up (What?)
I'm not gon stop (What?)
I'm gon work harder (What?)
I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm gonna make it (What?)
I will survive (What?)
Keep on survivin' (What?)
"

[For the puppy first, and then open!]
