What are the rules regarding nudity in the dorms? We've seen that a 'quick' run from room to bathroom is ok, but I'm talking full on movie Mystique strutting around letting it all hang out all the time.

American teenagers being that body-confident? HA!

Seriously... the WU isn't different enough from our world that even Exemplar girls and guys aren't wandering around completely nude where they can be judged, compared, and potentially measure up as 'less than'. In fact, the knowledge that there ARE Exemplar who you might be compared to is going to undermine the confidence of even the good looking ones. And Americans in the WU are just as much prudes with sexual taboos as they are in the real world. There are High School teens that will take gym and prefer to spend the rest of the school day sweaty and smelling than take a shower with their peers... and underdress their gym clothes to minimize the amount of changing needed.

A 'desperate' run to the showers/restroom in a towel and undies is going to be as far as it goes, mostly. That said... a guy in boxes and flip flops (shower shoes) or a girl in undies and a towel isn't much more dressed than being nude... and no more clothed than we are on the beach most of the time... but its still a common mindset. And its going to be more likely to be enforced in co-ed dorms. Single gender dorms might 'feel' safer for a quick run in the middle of the night.

Besides, where's the fun in a Shift copying someone's form to embarrass them by streaking, if it's not taboo?

Its going to vary, of course.
Some are going to do it just to make a statement.

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

Grainne herself suffers from pretty heavy body dysmorphia and wouldn't be caught dead nude outside the showers or the kitchens. The thing to remember is that many of the kids especially Poe have suffered some pretty serious trauma. So that's not gonna translate into streaking or necessarily a high level of inhibition.

Some of the girls seem to have no issue showing off in the communal showers (Laura, I'm looking at you here!), so I cant see them being that shy - not deliberately shgowing off, but if something hapenned I cant see them being devastated

Also keep in mind that there are two sides of that coin: some folks simply don't want to deal with anyone else's nonsense that early/late in the day.

Oh, definitely. "I don't care if you are an Exemplar 6; it's too effing early in the MORNING! I need at least two cups of coffee to deal with your inanity."

I can't remember right now if it there was such a character in the WU, but I'm thinking of Grace from El Goonish Shive who simply can't grok the concept of body modesty. It's not that she's an exhibitionist, it's that she doesn't understand why anybody would care one way or another, and finds more comfortable being nude indoors.

Whateley is a large school which has a bunch of international students, some of them coming from cultures (Scandinavian, Japanese, one or two might come from "naturist" families) with far less hangups about nudity. There might be a few cultural shocks on the dorm corridors...

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.
