Keep in mind that it's been some time since I've seen the movie. If I get any canonical issues wrong, let me know.

Also, since I'm guessing the Incredibles takes place in the 60's, keep one other thing in mind: for most of the 60's, homosexuality was ILLEGAL. It usually carried jail time, massive fines, and even capital punishment in some states with it. I've decided to use that.

I don't own the Incredibles.


I couldn't get that kiss out of my head all night, and as a result, I looked horrible in the morning. Even Dad, oblivious as he is about these things, noticed.

I got to school without incident, and first hour went smooth. I'm good at English. However, things changed as I was rushing to get to my next class.

As I was turning around a corner, I ran right into someone, knocking both of our books out of our hands. I was upset at myself, so I looked at the person to apologize and I froze.

I'd have recognized those eyes and that hair anywhere. "Fem" was sitting right in front of me, rubbing her head and looking around at her books. She looked up as if to scream at her assailant, but she stopped as she saw my face. I felt myself blush as she tried to recognize me (which was difficult without the mask), and I saw the word "Gotcha" light up her face when she saw my heated cheeks. That catlike grin returned.

"Heh, sorry there. Didn't see ya."

She helped me up, and we picked up our books. Afterward, she brushed herself off, and she held out her hand.

"Scarlet O'Murphy. Pleased ta meet ya!"

"Uh...Violet Parr."

She smirked as I shook her hand, and she winked at me. I nodded, as if to let her know that it was indeed me.

"Um, not ta be a pain, but could you tell me where room 205 is? I've got maths next, and I'm still getting used to this school..."

I blinked.

"I've got that next too."

She beamed.

"Then lead the way!"


I had Scarlet with me for the next two classes, and then I directed her off to the labs for a computer course while I went to Biology.

During the entirety of that class, I could only think about her. As a normal teenager, she was pretty funny, but somewhat airheaded. She didn't talk much, but she always had a smile on her face.

Occasionally, I couldn't help but think she was staring at me. It was like her fire powers turned into heat vision aimed at the back of my head. I was still really confused about the events of the previous day, so this REALLY didn't help.

I also got the ability to look back at her every once and a while, and it only confused me more. Scarlet was wearing a long yet form-fitting green dress. She had boots similar to her suit's, but only in black. Her brilliant red hair was pulled loosely into two long braids in the back. To top it all off, she had a gold necklace with a beautiful emerald adorning it. Overall, she was pretty cute with what she was wearing. Heck, she was pretty cute anyways, though the thought of me contemplating how cute another girl was was foreign to me.

I then looked a row and two desks to the left forward to look at my boyfriend. Tony was cute too, but it was a different kind of cute.

Compared to Scarlet...it was like comparing apples to oranges. Or guys to girls.


After that, I had lunch. I was originally planning on eating with Tony, but as luck would have it, I ran into Scarlet in the line.

"Ah, Violet. Fancy meetin' ya here, eh?"

I chuckled.

"I guess, but it was inevitable. We both needed to eat."

She smiled, and she nodded.

"True, true. Say, would ya eat with me? I still only know you 'round here."

I sighed as I contemplated it. However, luck then decided to kick me.

"Hey Violet!"

Tony decided to run into us at that moment. Scarlet was confused.

"Uh...hello."

He blinked, and he looked to me for answers.

"Tony, this is Scarlet. She's new here, and I've been showing her around."

He gave her a once-over, and I could tell that he was checking her out. I shook my head, and I moved forward in line. Scarlet, knowing full-well what he was doing, tried to be cordial when he smiled at her.

"Hi Scarlet, name's Tony. If you need anything, let me know."

It was only supposed to be a half-innuendo, but she still didn't like it. Neither did I, and I huffed.

"So Vi, wanna eat with me today?"

"Uh...no. I'm going to eat with Scarlet, and then I'll show her around a bit more."

He sighed, but he came in for a kiss. It was fast, so I couldn't pull away.

After he left, Scarlet was shaken, but she put on a good show.

"So...you and him..."

I nodded.

"For a while now."

She let out a dark laugh.

"Of course..."

After we got our food, we retreated to a far corner of the cafeteria. It was time for answers.

"So 'Scarlet', what was with that...kiss?"

She smirked.

"I was wonderin' when you would ask."

She sat back as she stabbed a tater tot with her fork and dipped it in ketchup.

"Ya see, I like girls. I like girls like you're supposed ta like guys."

She jabbed a few more tots, making a weird kabob of deep-fried potatoes.

"And I think you're cute. Really, really cute."

She quickly ate it, sighing as she finally got some food in her belly.

"But it's more than just the outside. I have a thing for shrinkin' violets."

Upon realizing what she said, she burst out laughing so hard that she almost coughed up her food. I frowned.

"Ha, ha, ha."

She sighed.

"Seriously, no joke! Besides, your powers match ya perfectly!"

I looked at her like she was joking. She giggled.

"First of all, you're force fields are violet. Second, it's perfect for a 'shrinkin' violet' to be able to go invisible and protect herself from harm."

I thought about it, and it was pretty funny. And correct. I loosened up on my frown.

"So...the kiss?"

"Oh, I just felt like kissin' ya. Though seein' as ya have a boyfriend now, well..."

She looked away as she took a sip of her chocolate milk. I looked down.

"S-sorry about that. I didn't mean for him to kiss me in front of you..."

"Ah, it's ok. I'd wanna kiss ya too, though not in front of everyone."

She slammed her milk down.

"Speakin' of which, keep this all to yourself, got it? I don't want it spreadin' 'round that I like the women here over the guys. Things like that are illegal, and have a nasty punishment usually."

I nodded slowly, and she breathed out.

"Ok, so about next hour..."


That night, when I got home, I thought for a while about her. I smiled the whole time.

As a 'shrinkin' violet', it was nice to have a new friend. Even one that kissed me illegally.


For those who are interested, there is some art of Scarlet in her suit on my dA account. My user name is "Liber-TEA".
