I have a story brewing based on this book, with a new character arriving and joining (probably) Inter V, but I'm keen to make sure I have my details right and avoid too many EBDisms.
Can anyone confirm if Margot was still in Inter V in this book? I know she moves up to Vb around the Trials/Theodora period, but I'm suddenly seized with doubt as to when. Is Emerence in the same class as Margot? I know she's older than Margot, but she's also not very scholastically inclined
Currently I have the following in Inter V - Margot Maynard, Pru Dawbarn, Zita Rincini, Janet Kemp, Pen Grant, Marie Lemprière, Francie Wilford? Connie Winter? plus a few more of my own creation. Miss Moore is their form mistress, and they have the reputation of being utter demons and mindless sheep, respectively.
On a more abstract note, my fic brings into the school a girl of a different ethnicity (Caribbean). Are there any characters you think might respond particularly positively or particularly negatively to her? I'm aiming for a tone matching the original books, no crack-fic or 'Chalet Girls Grow Up' here.
