Jonothon's Suite at the Arms, Monday Morning
The last thing Jono remembered, he'd been dead. Dying? He couldn't be entirely certain, as he'd slipped out of consciousness shortly after consummating his marriage with Lucrezia Borgia et Cetera last night in this very room.

... Or had he spent his evening with Raven after his concert, making love to himself? Or that lovely young woman who had spoken so flatly at him until they'd started talking about kisses? And there'd been that backup dancer of his. At least it wasn't like the day before with Seif- Ugh.

He was just going to not think about that. Much in the same way he wasn't thinking about how good it had been to just sit around, indulging in sushi and coffee, being aware of how decadent that was in spite of not being aware of the way he usually couldn't enjoy such things.

Or how good it was to spend the weekend being able to sing. Being known for it, in fact. If he hadn't been such a complete idiot over the weekend, he could almost come to miss that. But this was the second time this had happened since he'd first come to Fandom. Maybe he wouldn't be without forever, again.

Maybe he'd just stare out the window at... was that a volcano out there?

For what it was worth, it wasn't the continuity and timeline troubles from the weekend that were eating away at his mind. For reasons that he couldn't quite put a finger on, he was actually already rather used to those.

[OOC: Oooopen. I'm all about shameless linky posts this morning, apparently?]

And that would be his phone beeping with a text from a flailing Raven.

Where are you? Are you still in Fandom?

... Oh, Raven. Jono pulled his gaze away from the volcano and buried his face in his hand. This was going to be an interesting conversation.

I am. In my hotel room, actually.

Where he'd been maybe-quite-possibly dead last night. Or not even here at all. One of those.

He plugged in his room number next, and then sat back and waited.

A very morose looking girlfriend teleported into his room a minute later. She wasn't sure how she felt about this weekend yet (well, she was certain she wasn't happy about it), but the most important thing was making sure Jono was okay.

"Are you all right?" she asked hesitantly.

//I'm...// Jono squinted a little while he tried to puzzle out an answer to that. //A little less chiselled than I was yesterday. A bit more... er... enlightened, as well.//

Awkwaaard.

//I think I'm mostly opting to just tell myself over and over that it wasn't really me. It certainly didn't feel like me.//

Raven sat down on the edge of his bed, still feeling tense and awkward but mos of all relieved that Jono was Jono again.

"I did feel like myself either," she said, staring down at the floor. "I was using my gifts solely for my own personal gain." Which, well, he knew since she'd made him one of her customers.

"But if it was not me and it was not you then it was not cheating, was it?" she said in a small but hopeful voice. Guilt, she had it.

Jono's phone was beeping with another text.

Any chance the whole thing w/model-me + rock star u was just my crazy dream from too much pizza?

Tara didn't actually think that was the case. Nor was she precisely thrilled she'd apparently slept with a guy. But since it wasn't her body or her mind, she was having a hard time seeing it as real.

furnaceface

2011-09-12 08:49 pm (UTC) (Link)

Which was fair. Jono was more or less lost in that daze of, 'Well, it wasn't really me anyhow. No, really, is that a volcano?'

Only if I've been eating the pizza too, and I doubt that's the case, for whatever reason. For what it's worth, I'm filing it under 'some other us.'

The insane, mildly stupid them who didn't actually look anything like them in the first place.

life_inshadow

2011-09-12 11:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

Very other us, Tara opined, then added: Are you telling Raven?

She would have said more, like that it hadn't been a bad experience as much as a strange one, but she was worried about making things weirder than they had to be. Mostly, she wanted to know if she could expect an angry empath at her door.

Jono squirmed a little where he was already sitting. Oh, bugger.

... Already did. But if it makes you feel any better, you were far from being alone on that list.

life_inshadow

2011-09-12 11:38 pm (UTC) (Link)

Oh. That might make things a tiny bit awkward.

Well, Tara's door hadn't gotten blasted in yet, so ...

Is she mad?

Then, from morbid curiosity: Who else did you get w/?

furnaceface

2011-09-12 11:41 pm (UTC) (Link)

She wasn't exactly THRILLED, but I think she understands that it was horribly unlike either of us to do such a thing under normal circumstances.

And then Jono was staring at the second question, wondering how badly he actually wanted to say.

Oh, to hell with it.

Besides you? Raven, at least. And then somebody called Lucrezia and somebody else called Surreal... And Seifer.

furnaceface

2011-09-13 01:23 am (UTC) (Link)

... I think I'm going to thank you for that comment. Should I be thanking you for that comment?

He wasn't certain.

And he still wasn't sure what happened to the doves.

onapalebicycle

2011-09-13 01:30 am (UTC) (Link)

y. meant it. doves were a lil showy but music was good. how ru?

After a moment, she added

furnaceface

2011-09-13 01:37 am (UTC) (Link)

Oh, George. George of little tact.

Jono kind of missed that.

Nearly. I was never blonde with blue eyes, though. And I had more than one default facial expression, back then, too.
