I've had a rough week. In an attempt to write something, anything, I give you 10 random things about Kit.
1. Her favorite color is pink.
2. Pastel goth wasn't a phrase when I came up with her style, but totally a pastel goth.
3. She speaks a bunch of languages, but only because she learned through telepathy. Like, what's the point of having telepathic friends if you don't use it to cheat at skill acquisition.
4. The first time she met Logan was when she shook him out of a nightmare because "it's in the caring for your empath handbook. If you don't maintain your calm I will maintain it for you." She shook his feet btw. She's not stupid.
5. When she was sixteen all her fingernails fell off and she grew claws instead. They're retractable. It was a weird month.
6. She's a kind person. It's a choice not a naturally occurring trait.
7. Wears a lot of skirts and dresses because wearing pants while having a tail requires tailoring. There have been a lot of jokes about build-a-bear butts over the years.
8. Owns a really unnecessary amount of clothing with cats and related phrases on it. Like half her wardrobe. Finds it hilarious. Has consistently owned a hoodie with cat ears since she was 15.
9. Smokes. She's gone through phases where she quits. Sometimes for years. Next big stressful thing happens and she buys a pack. Keeps trying to quit for good. Started in high school. (I've a head-cannon that a lot of the X-Kids smoked. It's relatively inexpensive short term stress relief.)
10. All her boots are custom. Stupid semi anthropomorphised feet. Has to be careful about arch and ankle support.
I've got a pinterest board going for Kit. Mostly high school to young adult at present.https://www.pinterest.com/harperschild/kit/

Diary of an X-Kid is the name of the zine Kit and Piotr did in high school.
