What adventures do you think Mal would have got up to at Riverbend, whether it was the good old Super Special/Mystery style ones (trips to a thousand places and mystery and celebrity sightings) or plain old learning and making friends?
I imagine she would've written loads of stories and poems, and I envision her staying friends with Smita et al. and discovering/squeeing over hipsterish cafes because they sound so writerly. Do you think she would've changed her style in terms of fashion?
I think they would have gotten up to some hijinks exploring the campus (when you're stuck on a campus 24/7 in the middle of nowhere, things like going up to a roof are THRILLING!). I think she would distinguish herself as a class leader, and maybe end up a prefect or even class president. I just read Stacey's Problem because I was working on its wiki entry, and there's a lot of stuff about Mal being a leader and coming into her own.
Fashion-wise, I see her getting into menswear, since she was carrying her dad's briefcase around. I can see her doing an Annie Hall-type thing, clotheswise. After an attempt at hyper-trendy clothes like glitter sweatshirts, she'll realize that more classic clothes in her autumn palette work for her better.

I bet she'd play around a little with style. She complained so much about how her parents restricted her fashion choices at earlier points in the series; I bet she'd use the relative freedom she has at Riverbend to try out different looks.
