Room 408, Thursday Evening
Jonothon was feeling down. Again. It was possibly Jonothon's solemn duty to be emo. One of these days, he'd discover the roof, and then he'd never leave it again. Ever.

As it stood, he was flopped onto his bed again, face mashed into his pillow, silently willing the whole bloody world to just lay off. Apparently being thrown out a window, causing perfect strangers to fly into a state of panic, and learning that music just didn't mean anything to MTV anymore had that effect on a guy.

... Okay, so the rest of the week hadn't been so terrible. But that was easy to ignore when your bum hurt so bloody much.

[[The door isn't open, but the post certainly is. This boy apparently comes with a psionic furnace of emo. We're working on that. We're also working on making this another linkdrop. 'Cause.]]

Which mean Jean just had to stop by with posters to see if he was up for helping put them up around the school with her. Hey, at least she didn't bring cookies like was suggested to get people to vote.

So that was Jean knocking on the door. "Jonothon?"

The cookies probably wouldn't have gone over so well, no.

Jono made a mental noise that somewhat vaguely resembled a grunt of acknowledgement. See? He was absolutely here. He was also starting to miss having his room in the basement, where nobody ever really went.

He was also waving a hand somewhat in the general direction of the door as though he could actually reach it from where he was at.

//It isn't locked,// he reported, upon the vague realization that his arm was about six feet too short to be of any particular use in this situation.

Which was good because, um, ew?

Jean opened the door for him, peeking on in. "Hi! Have you been getting settled in alright?"

Well, it seemed less gross when Angelo did it, back in Massachusetts. Marginally. But then, Angelo had a funny way of making six feet of extra, saggy, elephant-like prehensile skin look almost attractive, when he was actually paying attention.

On Jono, it probably wouldn't have looked so good.

Jonothon at the very least had the good sense to pull his face out of the pillow and look at Jean before replying. //I fell out of a window today,// he shared. //And damn near gave some young gel a heart attack yesterday. Other than that...?//

But Jono was omg still cute!

Jean stared for a moment. "...how did you fall out a window?" Yes, that was the important bit.

furnaceface

2009-09-04 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)

It kind of was the important bit, wasn't it?

//A rather severe lapse of judgement involving my flatmate and three full cans of Red Bull,// Jono explained. As though that actually explained anything at all.

"Try not to do that again," Jean said, as maternal kindly as she could before taking a seat on the other bed.

And then there would be a girl. Knocking on the door.

Hey, if you know someone is having a bad day sometimes the best thing to do is drop by.

"Jonothon? It's Layla Miller."

furnaceface

Hey. The door. And that girl-- the one who knew stuff.

//It isn't locked,// he reported. Because it still wasn't, no. His face was buried in the pillow again, and he didn't really show any sighs of surfacing immediately. But then, when you didn't breathe, you really didn't have to, did you?

iknowstuff

"Hey," she said coming in and giving him a sympathetic look. "Not the best of days for you today, huh? Sorry about that."

furnaceface

//Most days aren't,// Jonothon replied. And then, after a few moments, he relented and sat up. See? He was perfectly capable of acting normal around other people. More or less. //Today I just managed to notice it more.//

Which was more or less Jonothon-ese for 'I gave up trying to cope today. The jury is out on if I'll try again tomorrow.'

"You're not going to make me sing about tomorrow being a day away, are you?" Layla smirked. "Because I don't have the hair for it. Or a dog."

... The weird thing about people who knew stuff was that they had a sixth sense for knowing exactly what would make emo kids like Jono blink and pull a double take.

Jono? Blinking. Pulling a double take.

//Yer know,// he noted, already sounding like he was in something of a better mood, //now I'm almost tempted to ask yer to try. Just to satisfy my curiosity.//

2009-09-04 04:06 am (UTC) (Link)

Layla just smirked at him.

All right. He asked for it.

THE SUN WILL COME OUT! TO-MOR-ROW!
BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT TO-MOR-OW.... THERE'LL BE SUN!


It should be noted that Layla's singing style was more shouting than actually singing.

JUST THINKIN' ABOUT! T0-MOR-ROW!
CLEARS AWAY THE COBWEBS AND THE SORRRRRROOOOOOOOOW!
'TIL THERE'S NONE!


And as Layla's singing goes on? It's obvious that she's tone deaf.

WHEN I'M STUCK WITH A DAY! THAT'S GREY! AND LONELY!
I JUST STICK OUT MY CHIN! AND GRIN! AND SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!


Get ready. There's a big finish coming up.

TO-MOR-ROW! TO-MOR-ROW! I LOVE YA! TO-MOR-ROW!
YOU'RE ONLY A DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!


She cleared her throat and gave Jono and amused look.

"There. Any applause?"

furnaceface

2009-09-04 04:11 am (UTC) (Link)

There was... clapping. A stunned silence, followed by clapping.

A kind of a slow clap, but a clap nevertheless.

Jono was going to need a moment, because the stunned silence was only so silent because he was physically incapable of making that laugh of his vocal, and the clap was so slow because the laughing was distracting from the task at hand.
