this didn’t happen to me, it happened to an old friend who now goes to art school. my close friend, kate, told me about it.
so the friend’s name is christopher, but he’s been going by “pher” since sixth grade. halfway through seventh grade, pher showed up to class in a suit. and then. he never. stopped. wearing suits. he wore suitS for the rest of seventh grade and ALL of eighth.
oh, and then my friends got him into homestuck. for about, like, two weeks, he was constructing himself a vriska cosplay out of paper. it got progressively more elaborate: he gave himself a paper robot hand, horns, and even got a pair of sunglasses to imitate vriska’s. it was weird.
and then ninth grade came along. he went to art school (along with kate) while i went to the standard one. and last time i saw kate, she told me of one of his… exploits.
on the first day of school, he decided that he would go by a different name for every class.
none of the teachers ever noticed.
AND HE STILL WEARS NOTHING BUT SUITS.
