“What is it about wearing a tuxedo or that little black dress, that makes us feel confident, beautiful, splendid, even invincible? We put on formal wear and suddenly we become extraordinary. On the days when you feel low and invisible, why not try this on for size: imagine you are wearing a fantastic tailored tuxedo or a stunning formal gown. And then proceed with your day.”
Athos, Porthos, and Aramis were Queen regnant Louise’s most trusted musketeers, and known in the regiment as The Inseparables because you rarely saw one without the others.
Athos, who came from the nobility, but with a past which haunted her and that she
tired to drink away. Porthos, who grew up in the Court of Miracles, and had fought for everything she’d ever got. Aramis, a nobleman’s bastard, constantly torn between her skills, her lust and her faith.
Their true names were known by no one but themselves, but in each other they all found something they had never really had before: family, loyalty, and love.
Fi: Katherine stresses time and again that she wants her students to learn to think and feel for themselves. She has little regard for social “rules” but instead lives according to her personal values (she will engage in an affair with another teacher, but only if he doesn’t sleep with his students in the meantime). Katherine is easily hurt, and sensitive enough not to want to hurt others – but also prepared to stand up for herself when she needs to.
Ne: She pins artwork and inspiration to her walls, to invoke a creative frame of mind as she works. Katherine looks to the outside world for inspiration – to different decades of art and history. She dreams of going places and doing things, but it takes her awhile to muster the courage. She is a forward-thinker whose progressive ideas sometimes get her into trouble with the faculty. She’s good at reading people.
Si: Her area of expertise is art, and she can easily rattle off details about it. Katherine loves old and new things alike; she also hangs on to certain things from her past – memories and relationships, that she doesn’t quite know how to let go of as her life changes.
Te: As a teacher, she is a woman of action – she comes up with study plans, does research to find new topics, and sets new tests and challenges for her students. She breaks up with her boyfriend when necessary, starts a relationship with someone else, chooses to leave the school, and travels to Europe.
