Loxley's Room
Your room was on the first floor of the boy's dorm. As you enter, a boy with messy blond hair sat on the bed, staring at a wall and sighing. he didn't seem to acknowledge your presence.

"Hey," said Kit.  "I'm Kit."

If he was going to be ignored... well, whatever.  He'd made the effort.  Now it was time to get his stuff unpacked, including the bow, still in its case, that he now used.  (It might come to his hand readily enough at times, but it wasn't quite as convenient as his clothes.  But most things weren't.)

"Hmm?" the boy said. "Oh, I'm Steve. Nice to meet you and all. You know what's not all it's cracked up to be? X-Ray vision."

"...I'll take 'Powers I also have' for a thousand, Alex," said Kit.  "I haven't tried it out in here yet, though.  Why?  Did they screen off the walls here?"

It would make sense if they had-- no point in encouraging peeping.  And Kit was quite happy with that, if that was the case, thank you very much.  Steve's powers were a potential problem anyway.

"Yeah, I mean, guys always laugh about it and how easy it'd be to peep at girls, but I've never managed. Being able to see through clothes just means you can see their skeletons because skin isn't much thicker," Steve said. "And I'm just not into that."

"Well, that's just the way it is," said Kit.  "What you need to do is either get actually onto very friendly terms with a girl, so that you don't need your powers, or get a VPN on your phone or computer or whatever."

...He didn't bring up options like "Spy on showers" because ew, no.  Kit was very much in favor of seeing girls naked, but not by peeping at them.  Ew.

"Otherwise we might have to take you out," a gangly black teenager said. "Because that's not cool man."

"Hey, it's just a joke, no need to take it too seriously," Steve said.

"Any time you have to say that, you screwed up," Kit suggested, and he regarded the new arrival.

"Hi," he said.  "I'm Kit Tucker."

"Jermaine Bucknor," the new arrival said.

"Steve Marks," Steve added.

"So," said Kit, "There's probably no graceful way to ask this kind of thing.  Instead, I'll tell you, and we'll go from there."

He cleared his throat, and made a 30% over-dramatic pose.

"I am Kit Tucker!" he said.  "I can see through walls, as noted before, and see great distances through darkness and disguises!  My eagle's eye also makes me a very, very good shot with... well, everything I've tried, including the bow that I keep in the case over there.  The bow is magic; so are my shoes, for what it's worth.  Also, I can get very hard to see.  It goes with the eyes, believe it or not.  And, uh, I can also use magic to change my clothes.  Which sounds much less impressive than the stuff I lead with.  Is that how you're supposed to do this?  Anyway, I also wound up with a chunk of training and practice, and some experience in using all this stuff, but all the magic stuff came along recently.  Kind of a life-changer, there."

Jermaine and Steve stared at you, blinking.

"Well, uh, I have a ton of eye related powers," Steve said. "X-ray vision, laser vision, microscopic vision, eagle eyes, dark vision. Those kinds of things."

"My family have been magic practitioners for ages now," Jermaine said. "So, I'm a mage."

...all right, it had turned out awkward.  Very much like every other time Kit had done something like that.  But in his experience, in such cases, the only possible solution was to keep going forward and not worry about how silly he might have looked.

"Those are both awesome things," said Kit.  "Somehow, I wound up between the two of you.  And now that we've gotten the strange part of the conversation out of the way, we can go on to normal things.  Has anyone been at this school before?  I'm new here."

"It's a new school," Jermaine said. "Don't worry about trying so hard, man. Or are you trying to get a LARP club going?"

Kit paused, and then laughed ruefully.

"...No, I just had a very dramatic teacher," he said.  "I guess I picked it up."
