Room 516, Monday

Kaylee was sitting on her bed, glancing around at her near empty room. The Christmas lights that were still up were the only sign that someone had lived here.

It was a little hard to believe she would be leaving in a few hours.

[ooc: If you want to say goodbye to Kaylee, this is the last chance to do so; feel free to handwave that she called if you'd like; *sniffles*]

Room 516, Saturday

Kaylee was sitting on her bed, staring out the window. It was kind of a mess out there, which would be the reason she was still here. She assumed this was just another crazy Fandom thing and it would be over by Monday. This would just be one more adventure before she left.

[ooc: As the post says, Kaylee will be staying a little longer because of the flood; open if you'd like.]

Room 516, Monday Evening

Kaylee was sitting on her bed staring at the letter in her hand. It had some of the usual things in it. The crew still missed her and Jayne was still a jackass. Nothing new there. However, Mal made it sound like the current mechanic was an incompetent moron. Apparently Serenity was falling apart without her.

"What are they doin' to my girl?" Kaylee asked herself as she read the letter again.

She made a decision at that moment. Seemed Serenity needed her more than Fandom did. Or at least that's what Kaylee was telling herself. She missed everyone. She missed the ship. She missed being in space. Maybe it was time to go home.

[ooc: establishy; Kaylee will be leaving by the end of the week, woe; if any of you would like to interact with her one last time, there will be an Empire post tomorrow and a final goodbye post Saturday. Or let me know if neither of those work and we can work something out.]

Room 516, Thursday Evening

Kaylee was sitting on her bed reading one of her assignments for Traditional Fairy Tales. She glanced at the Valentine's Day decorations on her wall. They made her smile, so she decided to leave them up there for awhile.

She was still processing what happened this weekend. Even though she was generally the cheerful, optimistic type, she was still shaken by what she saw. Who wouldn't be horrified by space cannibals, really?

Room 516, Thursday Evening

Kaylee ran back to her room after the strange incident in the park and had been there ever since. She still didn't feel safe, though. She was very tired and unwilling to move. She had a blanket wrapped around her, but the cold still lingered. Nothing seemed to make it go away.

The shadows in her room seemed normal, but that didn't stop her from watching them.

Room 516, Monday Afternoon

After class, Kaylee went back to her room to start the reading assignments for Traditional Fairy Tales. Instead, she continued thinking about what happened this weekend. For some reason she thought she was someone named Heidi who was married and knew Jaye. She also thought she was from a place called New Jersey. Kaylee didn't even know where that was.

At least she didn't do anything more embarrassing than warn Jaye to stay away from her husband Eric. It could have been worse. This Heidi person could have gone after Parker to warn her to stay away from Eric. That would have been bad.

Room 516, Saturday Morning

When Heidi woke up, she sighed over dramatically. This town was strange. She hated it here a lot. She just wanted to go back to New Jersey.

At least it wasn't crazy and weird there. Much.

[ooc: Establishy; Kaylee is now Heidi Gotts from Wonderfalls, hee.]

Room 516, Thursday Evening

Kaylee was starting to get settled into her new room. The extra space meant more room for all of her random engine parts. Unless, of course, she acquired more.

Currently, she was putting Christmas lights up. She really didn't care that the holiday was over. They were pretty.

Room 308, Wednesday Evening

Kaylee returned to her room after spending part of break aboard Serenity. It was nice to be back. She missed the crew a lot, and she missed being the ship's mechanic. She even missed Mal yelling at her to make sure things were running smoothly. Even when they were docked on Persephone for a few days. Still, it felt like home.

Now, she was back in Fandom. And Joxer wasn't. It wouldn't be easy to move on, but Kaylee knew she probably had to. It was unlikely that he would ever return.

To take her mind off of that, she settled on the floor and began tinkering with engine parts she had brought back with her.

Room 308, Thursday Evening

Kaylee was in her room, glancing at the gift River left her. She was trying very hard not to open it before Christmas. In the meantime, she was looking over her notes for the Constant Vigilance final. She really didn't want to fail.

[ooc: for Joxer, woe]

Room 308, Sunday Evening

Kaylee had spent most of the troll invasion hiding in her room. She would have tried to fight, but she knew she and weapons didn't mix well. She likely would have only gotten in the way or hurt.

She'd been worried about Joxer, figuring he was out there fighting trolls. She felt a little better when he showed up earlier to make sure she was okay. And he had been there ever since. She thought it was sweet that he was there to defend her if he had to.

Room 308, Monday Evening

Kaylee's weekend had mostly been good. Seeing Mal and Simon was the highlight, of course.

Saturday, she introduced Mal and Joxer. That meeting was just a bit awkward, so Kaylee made the huge mistake of inviting River and Blair over. That only seemed to make things worse.

Sunday was much better. She had brunch with River and Mal which was much more pleasant. Mal even brought shinies! An entire box of engine parts for her to fix up. She'd really missed being a mechanic.

So now she was sitting on the floor on her side of the room, engine parts scattered all around her. She was trying to decide which to work on first. There were so many to choose from.

Room 308, Monday Evening

Kaylee was sitting in her room, listening to music. She really should learn as much as she can about earth music, especially if she's going to work at Empire Records.

Having a job? That would probably be helpful as she is broke.

[ooc: door's closed but the post is open; thread with Joxer locked to him]

Room 308, Tuesday Evening

Kaylee was sitting on her bed working on the poem she wrote in her workshop earlier today. Even though she already turned it in, she wanted to make it better. She didn't really know why she bothered working on it. It wasn't like she was planning to show it to anyone.

After awhile, she gave up and started writing a letter to Inara instead.

Room 308, Monday Evening

Kaylee sat on her bed and proceeded to write a letter to Serenity, specifically to Mal. She could send an electronic correspondence of some kind, but letter writing seemed more personal.

Read more... )

Now Kaylee had to figure out a way to get the letter sent to a space ship 500 years in the future... She decided, for now, to head to the fifth floor common room.

Three-Toed Sloth B2, Sunday Evening

It had been a good week for Kaylee. It all started with the slumber party last Sunday where she met Willow, Buffy and Cordelia. Then she was introduced to Bollywood films and ate chocolate.

On Monday, she went to her first workshop, Arts and Crafts. She made an Alliance officer using popsicle sticks and then disfigured it in the name of justice.

She met Veronica on Tuesday when she went to Caritas. She could really get used to that bar. Maybe sometime she will sing there. She really needs to learn more about the music of this time, though. Wednesday, she met more new people, including Jamie and Anakin, who told her about the junkyard in town. And she met Gwynn in her second workshop, Astronomy. Looking at all the stars reminded her of home.

And she went to her third workshop on Friday. She had a lot of fun in Dadaism, where she played a strange version of Rock, Paper, Scissors with Stark. She wondered if anything could beat Reavers in that game.

She still likes it here at Fandom High. She's been enjoying the cabins as well. One of these days, she'd have to check out the junkyard.

Room 308, Monday Afternoon

Kaylee is starting to adjust somewhat to Fandom. She had met more people including a real live demon and talking cat. She also learned that there is a Viper on the roof, at least that's what she thinks Cally referred to it as. Kaylee really does want to check that out sometime. And she wants to meet Alphonse's cat sometime.

She talked to River as well. At least she was her River. Makes things easier. Besides, she promised Simon she'd keep an eye on her. Not that Kaylee would ever tell River that.

She still thinks about taking up knitting. Maybe tomorrow she would head to the library and find some books on the subject. Normally, she wasn't one for book learning, but she told Hermione she would try to take up knitting to help free enslaved house elves. The poor things.

She still misses everyone back on Serenity, but she is determined to make the best of the situation here at Fandom High.

Room 308, Wednesday Morning

Kaylee had a good time yesterday at the welcome party. She found the whole experience to be exciting. She met so many shiny people, including another girl who enjoys fixing engines and doesn't mind getting greasy in the process.

She also ran into River and Zoe. Although she wasn't her Zoe. Kaylee still couldn't wrap her mind around some of this stuff. Still, it was a comfort to know she is the principal of this school. Made it feel a little like home. Serenity. She sure missed that boat and the people on board she left behind. But she was determined to make the best of everything. There were so many new and exciting things to learn about. She was ready for the challenge.

[ooc: Open for interaction if anyone feels like visiting.]
