(no way is he actually going to show that he's being an adult and let people associate him with that gross stuff!!)

... so, right i've gone through this and there is no way that this will not sound terrible, context does me no good: but what's the sort of stuff that a sixteen year old girl need?

i'd shop for her, but pretty sure if i picked out anything she'd look like me only smaller. plus, she's too small to fit into any of my shirts and i'm a bloody giant so it rules out pants on my end. so, if any of you girls can help lenalee out, i'd appreciate it. maybe i'll pay you or something. whatever.

you're coming with me, the MAC has finally worn out its appeal.

can i ask you for a favor? i want to enroll someone from my world in the school. i'd elaborate, but i'm pretty sure you'd just get appalled.

Well, I don't see any reason you shouldn't be able to. I can bring you any forms necessary, or you can just bring them by the Institute so they, or she, if it's this same girl, can take care of it in person.


Now, just out of the strictest curiosity, should I be appalled?

Well, we will all have an excessive amount of bureaucracy to deal with in our lives. Might as well start them off early.

At this point, I think an elaboration will absolutely be necessary.
professorlionface: (Uhhhhh.)

Well. I guess you were right about my being appalled.

Offering her the choice in how to settle into the City is probably the best course of action, then. Obviously, I would recommend it, but it should be up to her. Easing young soldiers into a different life is something you can't really rush.
professorlionface: (I'll have to think about this.)

It may be best to let her discover a purpose that best suits her, perhaps.

How old were you when you were recruited?
professorlionface: (I'll explain this slowly.)

Well, that does complicate things. She will eventually need to find out, but it isn't a rug we can just pull out from under her. I'm sure you understand how culture shock can be, so if she's already not adjusting well then we won't want to overwhelm her.

Are we sure school would be the best immediate option? It would be not unlike tossing her into the present culture headfirst, and if you would like to delay the revelation of your occupation, that might make it known a little sooner than either of you may be ready for.

Ah. Well. Clearly that's something we should hope to prevent. But I suppose you know the rules to these things better than I, and you've clearly put some thought into the logistics of the situation.

You have my support for whatever she'll need, Cross. Bring her by and I'll personally sell her on the idea as best as I can.
professorlionface: (All the way up there?)

That's fine, it's understandable. Commendable, even. Anything I can do to help, I'll only be happy to provide
professorlionface: (Most excellent! :3)

They're rare, I imagine, but always a welcome sight when one should happen upon them.
professorlionface: (Psssst!)

Oh, don't worry, I'll keep your secret. Maybe that's another reason why it would be better to let her see the place first herself.

If we're to avoid something routing back to this "Allen", it would help to know who Allen is.
