Under the Hill
Kira Felicity Brennin
“If ignorance is bliss
then knowing will be the death of me.”
Apparent Age: Early Twenties
Kira affects a tanned complexion native to a sunnier climate, deep, dark, bespectacled eyes, and raven black hair with traces of grey. Her attire varies wildly, but she always seems to dress appropriately to the situation or crowd she’s with. Her voice is rich and fairly low for her age, with a huskier edge. Her body is toned down with thinner, lean muscle along the arms and shoulders, and she smells faintly of something earthy and spiced.

Kira is new in town, formerly bound for Harvard University in the autumn. She’d been undeclared, having had her eye on either the English or History Department, but has since dropped out. Now, she apparently writes bylines full-time for a local newspaper, while maintaining a personal blog on the side. Leisure activities tend towards fencing, dance, and storytelling.
In the past she’d grown a following as a cosplayer of different myths, legends, and goddesses. Kira has varied the cultures and time periods she’s drawn her muses from over time, and is known for keeping details authentic with realistic props and accessories to accent core themes. More recently, she’s retired those social media accounts in favor of a journalism blog. The content ranges from opinions on current events, society, morality, local news, art, and fashion articles. A prominent component of her material touches on her membership to the Museum of Fine Arts’ Fashion Council and their trips, opportunities, or exclusives.

The Entire Song.
- See You Again by Tyler the Creator ft. Kali Uchis
“I wonder if you look both ways
When you cross my mind, I said, I said
I’m sick of, sick of, sick of, sick of chasing
You’re the one that’s always running through my daydream, I
I can only see your face when I close my eyes
Can I get a kiss? (Can I get a kiss?)
And can you make it last forever? (Oh, forever)
I said I’m ‘bout to go to war (Go to war)
I don’t know if I’ma see you again (See you again)”
- Gilded Lily by Cults
“Always the fool with the slowest heart
But I know you’ll take me with you
We’ll live in spaces between walls
Every city’s got a graveyard
The service bought and paid for
Now I’m sleeping in the backyard
Passing out as light turns into day
Haven’t I given enough, given enough?
Haven’t I given enough, given enough?”
- Angles by Mick Jenkins ft. Noname
“(I am, um) I am absolutely, positively happy
Exponential, gratitude for rapping
Aptitude for passing dude’s exceptions
The vacancy will always be the laughing
Cause niggas love a bitch when she’s sarcastic
Rihanna is made of feather dust and matches
And everybody wants to touch the fire
A little bit of love never hurt nobody
Y’all up in the club while I’m sitting in the attic
Thinking bout the plastic trip to Malibu
Spend a couple racks on racks say hallelu-
In the waiting room trying to get to you
And who could be the breadwinner? Me”
- The Gold Is Mine by Oddisee
“So get yourself fixed up
I’ll take you out around town
I swear you’ll never witness anything quite as fine
Thank god, the gold is mine
Not bronze nor silver I’m forever winning
Not the given but my own definition”
