Bio:

I have loved the Chalet School books for years, but only recently began writing in this fandom. One of my favourite things about the series is the vivid personalities of the staff--I love that they are characters in their own right and not just necessary scenery for a school story. It is the staff who feature most heavily in my drabbles.


My other favourite thing about the Chalet books is reading between the lines for the relationships between certain mistresses. Whilst I'm not averse to the odd Nell/Con drabble and even write them sometimes, my head canon is Nell/Hilda all the way, and they are my chief pairing.

Summary:

What if the staff were all girls at the school, and taught by various of their pupils?

Hilda Annersley's behaviour has been less than sterling since the death of her mother a year previously. A fresh start at the Chalet School might be exactly what she needs, but it's so very different to her beloved St. Katharine's. With schoolgirl jealousies, an uninspiring maths teacher and the daily intricacies of life in another country to contend with, will she manage to settle down and find her place in the school?
