    Although Alice hadn't missed the "study" part like Emma had, that didn't mean she didn't want to emphasize the "party" half of things. She of course showed up in one of her favorite skimpy outfits - one that she knew Ophelia liked, the cheerleader cosplay that left very little to the imagination. When Emma showed up and they had to explain to her about it being a study part, she smiled at the Mermaid and said, "Hey, it'd be a waste to bring all those games and not use them. Maybe we could play them in between subjects, to unwind?"

    Still, it took less than a whole subject worth of studying for Alice to be bored out of her mind. And being bored, she started doing what little she could to amuse herself, including leaning back in her chair. Alice being who she was, this was of course a bad idea. When, inevitably, she toppled over, the *THUD* of the chair hitting the floor was accompanied by another sound - a loud *RIIIP*, as the top of her cheerleader cosplay outfit caught on the corner of the table next to her, and the thin fabric split easily under the strain. "Woops! Sorry, sorry!" Alice said, sitting up and examining the chair, predictably more worried about that being damaged than the fact that her top was in pieces and her lacey, semi-transparent bra was on full display.

    It's... It's a study party, Emma. We're all getting together, so we can try to help each other understand the material. Ophelia sighed. Put the games away, and I'm pretty sure all the snacks inhibit cognitive function.

    Ophelia who had been blushing a little bit, instead lets out a large sigh.

    Are you two done yet? I wanted to study and you're just sitting around goofing off! She lets out.

    Alice, just starting at this point to pick up the pieces of her top, gives Ophelia a surprised and genuinely hurt look at that. "Goofing off? I wasn't goofing off! It's not like I choose to have accidents like this happen. I mean, it'd be terrible if that fall had damaged your chair - it looks like it's okay, by the way. And it's not like I wanted the top of one of my favorite costumes to get torn up like this, either."

    Episode 9 Scene 6

    It's later that night, when Ophelia comes down from her room, significantly calmer.

    I'm sorry Alice, I'm just stressed about my finals, and I took it out on you, I shouldn't have and I'm sorry. Maybe we should all close the books, and focus on something else. She offers.

    What are you going to suggest

    Alice, as always having extra clothes with her, had thrown on a new top to replace he torn cheerleader outfit one - though true to her usual attitude about what she wore when she wasn't shackled by the school's dress code, it was just a fishnet top that essentially left no more to the imagination than she did when in just her bra. "Wow, you two are not getting the message there, huh?" Alice had to remark at Athena and Sam's reactions to Ophelia's suggestion. "She's saying we need to unwind for a few! No way it can be good to just keep going at this without a break for so long, right Ophelia?" she said, slipping her arm around the other girl's shoulders - and subtly rubbing the shoulder her hand came to rest on. "Come on, let's pull out one of those games Emma brought and play a round. There'll still be time to study after."

    Alice decided that if she was stuck studying, she would at least spend as much of it as possible hanging off Ophelia, hoping the other girl would have some attention to spare for her rather than just the books. After all, the other girl had definitely reacted to her in outfits like this in the past, withe the short skirt and fishnet top, so how she couldn't just ignore her the whole time if she were so close, right?

    I... I think I'm starting to get this guys!
    "That's great," Alice responds, giving Ophelia's arm, which she was still hanging off of, an affectionate squeeze. She'd notice Ophelia looking at her as she studied, and was quite pleased about it.

    Athena smiles slightly as the other girl begins to get it, but focuses on her own work, beginning early college entry applications.

    Ophelia blushes at the close contact and cuddly feelyness of Alice.

    Athena, what are you doing? Ophelia asks.

    ”College applications. I should have been skipped ahead grades already, and there’s hardly anything particularly new to learn in the rest of high school, so why waste my time? In a better system I would simply have been enrolled in an accelerated program, rather than shackled to the pace that the average student learns, but this is the next best option.”

    I always heard that it was unhealthy to the kids that it happened to. Ophelia lets out.

    "No less healthy than feeling stifled. I'm bored here. My mind wanders during instruction, I relate to almost nobody at this school, and I am still mocked by peers for my eagerness to learn. I loathe the term 'gifted,' but clearly I comprehend things that we are taught with far greater ease than other students, and yet am expected to wait at the metaphorical finish line as other students are still rounding the first curve when I could be making a whole other lap instead. I would prefer to just receive instruction with other students who learn at the same pace as me, but alas we are in neither the right location for that, nor does our education system as it stands make such instruction easily accessible without wealth, and often dresses it up as some high society privilege because of the former.

    "So instead I'm seeking to enter college early. Perhaps MIT or CalTec will actually leave me feeling challenged for a change. I'm still young and mentally pliable, why waste that limited time bored and angry?"
