I mean I guess you could headcanon collegestuck Rose as color-coding her notes and keeping an impeccable notebook that she graciously loans out to her classmates and intimidating everyone with her competence and brilliance but like… have you seen her bedroom. Have you seen how she reacted to her quest.
I’d bet my nonexistent collection of wizard statues that by the end of her first year in college, Rose is one of those people who participates in class discussion constantly and is always willing to debate the readings, but turns in sloppy papers riddled with typos and lacking a coherent structure. She’s the student who has an A+ in participation and an average of 60% on most of the written assignments, mostly from points off due to lateness. If you stopped her and asked her about the prompt for one of her assigned papers, she could give you a verbal treatise about her position on it complete with paragraphs and footnotes, but an hour before it’s due she’s writing fanfiction and getting into arguments on the internet and reblogging aesthetic posts.
Her classmates think she’s the most intimidatingly smart person in the course. Her friends know she’s a hot mess. Her teachers tell her she has a lot of potential but they don’t think she’s applying herself. They’re all right.
