.... I gotta think up a good 'not allowed' speech for Adel... I think something along the lines of "The School Rules may not be altered, removed, or added to, no matter the situation that may or may not arise, previously exist, or have the potential to exist, without a majority vote in the student council, and approval of the Headmaster. No exceptions are made for case-by-case bases." I don't know... too soft? too harsh? need some outside thought/input on this (after all, I don't want to make my character look like he's a heartless sod on the first day of school... he's only heartless when it comes to actual rulebreakers... himself excluded, not that he'd intentionally break them...
of course, I could also add in at the end 'although that might have been the rules from two years ago' to turn it into a slightly more hopeful situation for Adel, granted, he's still probably going to end up trying to be nice and hinting that wearing something *under* the micro-skirt (ie longer skirt) might not technically currently be against the rules -- or modifying the wheelchair a bit... but if you're against that, I wont
edit: and since even that isn't making straight sense (to me, at least) right now, boiled down version is: he'll say 'sorry, can't really change the rules for case-by-case', then (may or may not, up to you) suggest it might be possible to 'bend' the rule slightly, and then possibly directing her to a female member of the student council (which I have yet to name)
edit2: or, of course, Jake could suggest that she could join the student council, seeing as they get the bonus of a 'modified' uniform...
idk, maybe I'm just thinking too much... need a few more dots... .................. ... dot dot dot... ok, goin to sleep for now before I end up posting something that'll manage to sound even weirder (or dumber, or possibly both) than this
hopefully I'll have figured it out by morning
