Prism makes a slight humming noise, closing her eyes as she leans on her friend's shoulder. "Let's see... well, I can talk about before I came to Beacon. I was a skinny 4'7" hummingbird who'd been homeschooled for 12 years, so I knew I'd need a good reputation to get into Beacon- so I threw myself into academics. Ran track, martial arts club, leader of the faunus rights branch at my high school on top of AP classes, hell- even managed to graduate valedictorian!" There's a faint smile on her face as she thinks about that, before going on. "I worked two part-time jobs too- with Melonia, you've met her, and then there was Madame Bernard, my..." She struggles on the word. "...host, and other employer."

Another shake of the head, this one in amazement as Prism reels off the sheer number of extracurricular activities she threw herself into before Beacon. In comparison Jocelyn seemed pathetic. First aid training, biology of the human body... that was nearly everything she had under her belt.

“Impressive would be a understatement there, Prism.” Jocelyn half-teased. “Kindly stop making the rest of us feel insignificant.” She was clearly skirting around the elephant in the room.

Jocelyn's compliments get a sweet smile and a small snort. "I had literally no reputation, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten in- hell, I'm still a scholarship student! Otherwise, I never would've even been able to pay for Beacon." She explains, giving a little shrug. "I'm just happy I managed to beat the odds in the end, frankly. Sometimes all the motivation you need is the dream you're surviving on." Prism says, then takes a moment to blink at her own phrasing before blowing a raspberry.

"...that doesn't sound quiet as morbid as it really does, I promise."

Once more Jocelyn could only shake her head in pure admiration. "If only everyone in the world was like you--determination, spirit, kindness and caring all in one cute package." There's a little bit of a blush as Jocelyn realises what she just said, but she lets it show since every single word she just said was genuine. "It's not morbid, honest--amazing what the human race can do based purely on motivation and dreams."

"Wasn't aware Beacon did scholarships?" she asks, her head tilting sideways in curiosity. "Oh, and you've definitely beaten all the odds--now it'll be smoother sailing, I promise."

The grin on Prism's face grows, turning a cute shade of pink at Jocelyn's words of praise, but the lopsided smile she wears makes it clear Prism's not going to stop her. At the last part however, Prism snorts. "The human race is amazing indeed, but don't forget-" There's a brief beat as Prism's wings rustle, making their presence known. "I'm not even that. Coming from an orphaned faunus, it's ridiculously lucky." Notably, this is the first time Prism's admitted she's orphaned - but she doesn't seem bothered by it.

"I have a couple scholarships backing me up, the big one this 'Royale Scholarship' a former hunter here at Beacon set up for those who couldn't attend otherwise. Point is I got enough to cover boarding, and that's all that really matters." Prism explains, but there's another quirk to her lips at Jocelyn's last words. "And don't worry - I'm anticipating it."

"You keep reminding me of my mother." There's still a smile on Jocelyn's face, though now it's tinged with a mix of longing. "I get the feeling you'll get on well with them if you ever met. It's just a hunch, though, and they do post an intimidating front at first glance." she says, sighing a little. "Equally as protective as my brother--would help explain how literally no one dared lay a hand on me."

Jocelyn's nudged with Prism's wing again, the grin still on her face. "I'm going to take that as a high compliment, I hope." she teases, sitting up a little but keeping her head leaning on the woman's shoulder. "And I guess Setsuna would need to get that attitude from somewhere, you're the baby of the family after all." She's nudged with the wing again. "But seriously - with the Vytal Festival coming up, I may get the chance if they're coming up to watch Casanova compete. From what I've heard of them, I've concluded that best behavior's a necessity, and never let them meet Coconut if I can help it."

"Hehe..." There's a soft giggle, elicited both from Prism's wing and from her last comment. "It won't be too bad, they were children once too. I'm sure they'll understand eventually--but otherwise, I agree, keep Coco out of sight and out of mind during the festival." She shuffled a little to get Prism's wing out of her side. "That tickles, you know! Anyway, I think you would instantly see at least one of them, at least....as would literally the whole stadium if they do decide to turn up."

"It's amazing how used to all the staring you get after awhile. Dude's just hormonal, doesn't really mean any harm." Prism comments, thinking back on their teammate for a moment, before focusing on what Jocelyn said. A slightly mischievous grin creeps on Prism's face at Jocelyn's comment about being ticklish, and the hummingbird quietly files that away for later use as she tilts head at the last part of her explanation."What do you mean? I mean, I know your mom's a medic, so it'd make sense she'd be on the front lines to check out combatants afterwards..." she questions, pondering.

"You'll see how wrong you are when you get to your fourth year, Prism..." Jocelyn murmurs good-naturedly, managing to let the cheeky grin on Prism's face flit past her recognition. "Oh, um. I guess that would be the case if she signed up to be part of the Amity Arena's medical staff, but no. It's completely different," she said, unsure on how to continue this line of conversation without inadvertently offending her friend.

Before she continues speaking, she mentally sweatdrops."Um, Prism? Please don't take this the wrong way...My dad is tall. Like, 7'11" tall. Remember when I said Setsuna got trapped under a set of weights? I wasn't joking. He sticks out like a tree in a desert."

Prism blinks, then blinks again as she processes what Jocelyn's saying.. 7'11". 7'11". That's three feet taller than her - her heels won't even make a difference. "...I hate being short."

The hummingbird faunus takes the opportunity to sit up, before dramatically flopping across Jocelyn's lap, one wing tucked up against her while the other sprawl's out onto the grass. Prism gives an overly-dramatic sigh, covering her eyes with one forearm. "Oh Jocelyn, how could you wound me so! Carrying the genes of a giant, I'm obviously so insignificant in comparison." She proclaims, laying her free hand on her chest as if to clutch her heart. "How could you betray me?"

"W-what? Prism, I'm not..." a stammering Jocelyn gets out, stumbling over her words as a result of being flustered so easily. "I'm not t-tall like he i-is, um..." She looked down at the hummingbird Faunus sprawled across her legs, her face beginning to burn. Even with her small stature, Prism is heavy with her muscles. The folded wing brushes against her stomach in such a way that it tickles, making Jocelyn squirm slightly. "You're not insignificant, I promise..." Finally, she gives up. "Sorry?" Jocelyn squeaks with the pitch of a mouse.

Prism peaks out from beneath her arm, staring up at Jocelyn while she stutters through an interaction, her lopsided grin one part mischievous and one part fond, before bursting out laughing and throwing her arm off her face. "J-josie, it's ok- pffehehe- okay! Y-you did nothing wrong, I- pfft- I know you're not as tall as him, th-thank god- ehehehe..." She calms her laughter, looking up at her affectionately. "You're fine- hell, you're great. I had to joke around, if you don't make the best of being one inch away form a legal midget, I don't what I'd do."

With a loud moan, Jocelyn falls onto her back, crushing some unfortunate sprigs of grass. "You could stop teasing me for a start..." she groaned, her legs beginning to feel numb from the weight of Prism crushing them and pinning her to the floor. Her wings still, infuriatingly, managed to sensually flit over her now exposed navel, resulting in an increasingly tormented and ticklish Jocelyn.

"C-could you let me g-go now, please?" she started to giggle, trying to wriggle her way out from underneath the Faunus without accidentally kicking one of those wings. So far, no success--and incidental or not, those wings were still driving her crazy.

Prism gives another little snort, before flopping off Jocelyn’s lap to lay on the ground next to her. ”No worries Josie, you’re free. I’m not that mean.” she says, a teasing note still in her voice. She tucks her wings up against her back, freeing Jocelyn from their fluffy torment - but that apparently doesn’t mean she’s done with the physical contact, or at least the close contact. She crawls up the grass backwards to flop on the ground next to her teammate, tilting her head to the side to offer Jocelyn an apologetic grin. ”I’m sorry if the teasing got too much, just let me know if I need to lay it off at any point okay? I don’t want to get overwhelming.” she explains, an apologetic note to her voice.
