Kastra McLinin was sitting at her desk as she looked at the papers she needed to grade this evening or else risk not getting them done at all. Fifty ten-pages papers from 50 students that didn't give a crap about the topic. Well, she hoped they cared, but many times they didn't. She picked up the first paper in one hand and a beer in her other hand. She was tired, exhausted from previous days that seemed to run together. She had been so busy with her new classes and getting the papers turned in that she hadn't been allowed to change her shape like she was so used to. "Screw it," she grumbled, putting the paper back down and chugged the last of her beer, the small buzz it was giving her allowing her to act this way. She jumped around the desk, getting her stiff muscles ready for what she needed them to do. She closed her eyes and stretched her arms over her head as she grinned and allowed her body to change. Panther. That would relax her the most of all her shapes. She could feel extra bones beginning to build near her tailbone, creating a tail that formed up and out the top of her pants. She shimmied her hips a little, making the pants lower so the tail wasn't in such an uncomfortable position. Next a pair of flexible black ears appeared on the top of her head which twisted and caught up with the rest of her senses. "Myah!" she said with a giggle as she stretched again and bent over, tail lashing over her back, getting used to having one again. She didn't hear anything but the popping of bones into the right spot to accept her new tail and ears and the shifting of her hand bones to form clawed fingers.
