Room 408, Monday Afternoon
Well. Jonothon's first day of classes had been... Educational.

In Science class, he'd been offered a position as a TA, which had caught him off-guard, really. The people gawping at him when he'd spoken in that Religion class was a little more like what he'd been expecting ever since he'd arrived here, though people seemed to rather consistently take his voice in stride right up until that point.

He was trying damn hard not to dwell on any of it too much. He would have to head into town sometime, to see if they had a music store of some sort. And he needed clothing. He could hardly wear the same outfit for the rest of his time here, and laundry was a particular challenge when you didn't have the option of standing around shirtless, anyhow. He'd have to ask Ben what he knew about the places in town where he could get both or either.

For the time being, he'd settle for flopping backward on his bed and staring up at the ceiling.

Ceilings were bloody boring.

[[The door is open if anybody wants to poke at the kind of smelly guy. Will be a shameless linkdrop soon enough, as well. Because I'm just sneaky like that.]]

Triela was making her way down the hall back to her room when she saw an open door. Open doors often contained newbies, she was finding. "Hello, any newbies in here?" she called as she paused in the doorway, leaning against it slightly to take the weight off her splinted foot while being careful not to jostle the arm in the sling.

The girl was a very good guesser, Jonothon decided, glancing toward the doorway, and then sitting up to look at her.

//And if there are?//

He was only a little abrasive at the moment as he projected that statement. Mondays were his least favourite day already.

Because he was emo. Shut up.

"I figured it was my solemn duty to welcome you to the fourth floor?" she suggested. Which was as good an excuse for being nosy as any, really.

Jenny smelled new kids.

Well, actually, since except for around twenty minutes immediately following her shower Jenny wandered around in a miasma of cigarette smoke and gin, she didn't smell much of anything, though she did think she caught a faint whiff of rotten eggs on fire. But she knew there had to be new kids around here somewhere, and she was a woman on a mission: she was going to welcome them and convince them to vote for her for Student Council before they knew any better.

"Knock knock," she said, leaning in the doorway and puffing on a Silk Cut. If the very posh accent didn't give away her country of origin, the Union Jack t-shirt probably sealed the deal. "Jenny Sparks, I live down the hall."

She just so happened to wear that Union Jack well, at that. Jonothon approved of both the shirt and the accent, even if his own was considerably less posh and noticeably more East End.

//Jonothon Starsmore,// Jono replied, sitting up to look at her warily. //And I don't.//

Live down the hall, that was.

Jenny arched one eyebrow at him and drawled, "Right." Then she said more normally, "I should hope you don't, or whoever does live in this room will be rather annoyed to come back and find you in it, I would think." She paused, then added, "If you can communicate in some other manner, I would apprecaite it. If you can't, carry on, but I'd advise you to bloody well not go digging in my head. My shields'll make your brain bleed."

Didi stopped by after her shopping trip to town, bag of T&C supplies in hand. "So I think I got a job in a thread yet to be played out," she told him from the doorway. "Isn't that weird? And can you have candy?"

Jono blinked at his ceiling a couple of times before sitting up and looking at the girl in the door.

Oh, the girl he'd met on the shuttle! He'd actually liked her, so the question of candy didn't really sting as much as it might have otherwise.

//I can't, luv. But thanks for the offer.// He paused, turning around and slinging his legs over the edge of the bed. //Yer've found yerself a job already? That's impressive. Where at?//

"General store in town," Didi announced, slouching in. "It should be cool. I've never had that kind of job for money, have you?"

Little did Jonothon know that there would apparently be a conga line of girls who wanted to talk to him that afternoon.

Raven had tracked down Jonothon's name in the student directory to find his room number, so that afternoon she went up to the fourth floor and knocked quietly on the doorframe. "Jonothon? It is Raven, from Lady Ghanima's class this morning."

Jonothon was clearly the most popular boy with no lips in the entire school. He'd be flattered, if it wasn't a little worrisome.

//I remember yer,// he replied before he even bothered sitting up. A moment more of staring at the ceiling, and he eventually did that, too. //The conversation I had with yer was one of the harder ones to ignore, today.//

"May I come in?" she asked. "Or if you wish, I could return another time."

Jak strolled into the room after class, shooting his roommate a smile before tossing - yep, tossing - himself at his bed, shoving his arms behind his head, and stretching. Nice and relaxed, yes.

And Jonothon watched the whole thing with some vague sort of interest.

It had been that sort of day.

//Good first day of classes, Jak?//

The whole stroll and flop thing kind of gave off that sort of vibe.

Jak gave him a thumbs-up. It was, as far as thumbs-up went, a mildly confused one. Eric had been...

...Eric had been special. Jak pointed at his head once. Claimed he could read minds.
