Katherine Rivers has golden brown hair and hazel eyes and, well, she loves the more contemporary styles of dance, and she also does ballet and ballroom. She’s also not well-to-do the way David is, and one of the problems that she and David used to have is that David’s previous peers from junior high called her a bit of a “golddigger” and didn’t like her (this is directly related to the accident that happened years ago).
She’s crazy about David, of course, and vice versa. I mean honestly, five years. That’s a long time in today’s high school “couple” standards.
She’s very stubborn (if that isn’t obvious). When she makes up her mind to do something, or if she says something, she’ll do it. There’s no stopping her. (David has found this true way too many times)
She also likes feminine clothes—like long flowy dresses and comfortable shoes (she wears heels but only on special occasions). She also doesn’t put on a whole lot of makeup—too troublesome to do in the mornings, apparently.
Katherine also teaches ballet to little kids as a bit of a part time job to help with the budget around her house.
Katherine's grateful to wake up each morning. Katherine wants to have kids, raise a family and dance professionally but shes worried she might not be able too.
Katherine is independent, dedicated to dance, and quite observant.
Katherine can sing.
Katherine looks good in black or in solid bright colors.
Katherine thinks that Shane is a much better dancer than her, because he can freestyle better.
According to Allison, she's always in a far better mood outside of the hospital.
She has a sister, Lily, who is her best friend. Lily's in college. She also has a brother named Francis.
She would be happy with whatever wedding dress she gets.
Since Katherine often gets bored when she’s in hospital, she’ll read to pass the time.
She’s taken up various styles of dance, but she likes ballet, jazz and ballroom the best. She also does freestyle, and she has fun when she does.
Katherine's doctor is Santana's dad.
For Childrens Day, all boys and girls dressed up as their favorite characters as a child. Katherine dressed up a the Pink Ranger.
She once caught a slimy frog and put it on her mommy's plate
Katherine is never happy/content with how she moves. Other people think she's very talented. She could easily clear the cut for any of the best dance schools.
I think I began dancing when I was in first grade. Mom and dad took me to see this ballet…and I made a big deal about all the beautiful girls in the tutus and the shoes… (laughs)
They said that after that, they showed me where the ballet school was in our town and I’d always be staring at the older girls and asking if they had a sparkly tutu at home. The folks finally decided to enroll me in a class. :)
I’ve been dancing ever since—not just ballet but other types of dancing too. (laughs)
She's closer to Prima than Royal. Katherine is a scholarship student. Without dance, she can’t afford to stay in Dobry.
Ms Caldwell is Katherine's dance teacher at Dobry.
Katherine would marry David if he asked. Her and David have had sex.
David had once began singing such an incredible rendition of "Kiss From a Rose" to Katherine over the phone that the other Warblers ran up to him and actually provided him backing vocals (it was reported later that Katherine cried).
David had a cake made for Katherine with a little ring in it as a surprise, but she swallowed it.
Katherine once left her facebook up on David's computer, so he changed her display picture to a picture of Hermione carrying Dobby at his funeral on the beach as payback. She didn't speak to him for a week after that.
When Katherine First Met David
Hmm… Well, I didn’t actually notice him at first. His group’s punishment was supposedly cleaning up the auditorium, but I was left behind in there practicing. David was there at the seats and all I knew was “Who was this guy watching me out there?”.
So I told him that only dance club members were allowed in right now, and he told me what he was there for… he was actually pretty nice. I thought he was like the other boys in his group, but he was nice. :)
