How to Stay Sane
Date of Scene: 21 May 2020
Location: Wellness Office - Xavier's School
Synopsis: Megan visits Kitty about her growing worries.
Cast of Characters: Pixie, Shadowcat

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn had scheduled an appointment with Kitty, specifically a counselling session because of all the craziness that was happening around her lately. Recently, even with the dark influence no longer in her mind, Megan had continued to be withdrawn, spending most of her days alone and isolated, avoiding her friends. Although truth be told, a lot of her friends were still fearful of her new apperance.

Shadowcat has posed:
Sleeves rolled up, Kitty. She's got a job to do. Counselor Kitty is in today...as she settles on the chair by her desk. "Alright, so" she says and looks over to Megs, eyes softening...as yes, she's keeping up with all the news and updates with Megs. Kitty's relaxed and not pushing Pixie. If anything,,,..in her own time, Pixie, Kitty's just jotting down notes and listening, waiting on Pixie.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn draws a deep breath as she steps into Kitty's office, forcing a small smile on her lips, although she's markedly less cheerful than she usually is. Grey bat wings wrap around her shoulders almost protectively, hugging her arms as she slides into an armchair and nods to Kitty.

"Um hi. I guess..You probably know a lot of the stuff that's been going on, I mean, besides the obvious." she shrugs, "Betsy and Ms. Grey got the bad influence out of my head..But there are still lingering..Echoes? I guess? I still get lingering dark thoughts, I still feel heightenned feelings of..Anger, hatred...Jealousy.."

She frowns a bit, looking down. "And..I dunno, I guess I felt like I was in a vulnerable state when my..My heart felt like it was toyed with." this last part makes her redden a bit, feeling embarrassed as she looks down at her hands.

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty's listening as she listens quietly. "Go on" she says gently. "Your heart got toyed with? Who do I neeed to drag into my office and talk to?" she adds looking protective of her students.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn blinks and shakes her head. "Oh, no, I don't wanna name names or get anyone in trouble. Just..." she sighs, glancing around nervously, "Heey, this is all confidential, right? Just..Just needed to get some stuff out of my chest, you know? I mean this guy..I never really paid much attention to him before but, I guess right after I was stabbed and my souldagger was stolen.." she grits her teeth and sighs.

"Well, he was just suddenly paying all this attention to me, he was sweet and kind and concerned..And just when I started to lower my guard, he let me know that he chose someone else over me.." Megan seems suddenly bitter, hands clenched.

"I mean, I shouldn't be annoyed, that 'other person' has already told me she was involved in two different guys so maybe I thought I stood a chance but I really am an idiot. I mean they're like this now.." she interlocks her fingers for emphasis. "Soo I shouldn't really feel anything at all. I should just somehow pretend like we didnt suddenly get that close and just..I dunno, shut off my feelings right? And to be fair, there's this other guy I kinda like, although since the lockdown I haven't seen him at all but..But..He DID kiss me, and promised me a *real* date, after the last two were interrupted by gremlins, but..He's got a roving eye too.."

Megan sighs, face bright red after all these confessions.

"Sooo...I dunno what to do, or what's the appropriate way to feel, y'know?"

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty listens, not judging, not even saying aword yet. Instead she's quiet....but the whole Megs love life thing has her sitting up and paying attention. She's giving Megan an understanding look, going point by point. "So the guy you were into was already what, interested in two other girls or?" Kitty asks raising an eyebrow. Hey, if he was two timing, Megs dodged a bullet, or....maybe Kit Kat's misreading things but...

"You're doing just fine, Megan" Kitty says reassuringly. She's got her counselor hat on, and would say that to anyone, even if the library was on fire, she'd still tell the librarian things were okay. Mostly since her office wouldn't be aflame yet...

Still Pixie gets a nod from Kitty as she smiles. "If he's got a roving eye though..." Kitty says. "That boy needs talking to, you know?"

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn shakes her head. "Well..Noo, he claimed he liked me and this other girl equally, and he wasn't sure who he'd pick if he had to. Next thing I knew, he'd picked the other girl who I thought was already seeing someone else at the same time but maybe not, so I guess he didn't really like me that much, but now I have to pretend not to care? I duno, they're both my friends and I like 'em, I'm just not sure how to act around them now.."

Oh yes, she's caught up in a mini soap opera of sorts. And if it weren't so damn tragic, it'd almost be funny. "As for the other guy, he's really sweet but..It's been a while, and since I'm in lockdown for who knows how long, I'll bet he's already got his eye on other girls..I mean he's freakin' superboy for crying out loud!" she gasps, and covers her mouth. Meeps, she didn't mean to spill names. How embarrassing!

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty looks understanding. "Been there, done that Megs" she says. oh yeah she's keeping the whole 'I had coffee with Conner' thing on the DL. Noo sense in rubbing it in, period. "Yeah but think of it this way and I know this souns harsh but at least you're not with somebody who is cheating, right?" kitty offers. Ouch, Kit Kat...still she's got Megs best interests at heart.

She truly does as she listens. "So this guy, is he really worth it if he's got a roving eye? I mean, okay. I want the white picket fence, the dog, the swing in the back yard, the whole thing, you know?" she spills.^R
Imagine Kitty Pride in a white picket fence house. That's totally a strange concept but Kit Kat gets where Megan's coming from.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn sighs and nods slowly, "Yeah, I guess so. Still not sure what to do. I mean, should I just act like nothing new or.." she shrugs, "This other guy? He was really sweet but now I'm not sure who I can trust, you know? I guess maybe I should just play it cool and not get too emotionally invested, right?"

She arches a curious brow at Kitty, "What about you, how do you decide if someone is worth your time, and how much you should invest in them?"

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty leans forward watching Megan. "Honestly, I'd just be yourself" Kitty nods and looks relieved. "I'd just be yourself really and don't let anything get to you" Kitty nods again listening. Yeah how does Kit Kat figure out if somebody's worth it? Good question...

Kitty sighs and shakes her head. "I donn't know how I'd figure out if somebody is worth it. It's different for everyone" Kit Kat muses.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn smirks a bit. "Just...Be myself, huh? My crazy, impulsive, silly, trouble magnet self?" she laughs nervously, "Eh, I suppose I can try just.." she sighs, "I have a knack for ticking off people.." she peers curiously at Kitty. "Ummm have you ever been in love? What's it like..?"

Shadowcat has posed:
Kitty laughs looking over to Megs with a knowing smile. "Yes be yourself. No matter what that is. They do say the best revenge is doing well after all" Kitty says with a nod, listening more to Megs.

"Have I ever been in love? Did you just turn this into a game of never have I ever, Megan?" Kitty grins. "Though to answer that question, no" she admits. "No experience. Sure, I've read those novels about it...but shhhh that's a secret!" she says. Yeah right. Telepaths already know...

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn smirks and shrugs, "Just curious is all, I mean, is all that heartache worth it in the end or should I just cut my losses and run? You know, seal up my heart and focus on myself instead? I dunno, this was never something I even thought of, up until recently, when that goblin freak messed with my mind.." she pouts a bit. "Okaay, so be myself. Anything else?"

Shadowcat has posed:
"You know what they say about curiosity" Kitty muses with a wry shrug. "Is the heartache worth it? I don't even know on that one. "No idea" Kitty shrugs watching Megan, listening as she shakes her head.

Pixie has posed:
Megan Gwynn giggles, "Curiosity killed the kitty? Well, good thing I'm not a Kitty.." she's got an impish look in her eye as she rises to her feet, "Well thanks for listening, I think I feel better now..."
