Jonothon hadn't left his room in two days, now.
He couldn't bring himself to. Nothing was quite right about anything since Sunday night, and what the hell was he supposed to do even if he did? Wander around waving hello to people? Hope he didn't trip over something? Just casually wander into the clothing store and ask what they had in their stock of hats to help hide the nightmarish metal construct that was apparently taking the place of his currently missing head? He still wasn't sure what the hell had happened back there, when he'd gone from himself to... whatever this state of affairs was, all in an instant, all after watching the air rip itself apart in front of him.
And, to top it all off, he was having... moments. Not just moments where everything was wrong, but moments where everything very nearly seemed right. One second he'd be trying desperately to make sense of what was going on, and the next, he could swear he could almost see again, watching Joni mind her own business, padding around across the room, knocking over his things. Not watching her with his eyes, of course. Just... being aware that she was there. Knowing that it was his prom king crown that she'd just knocked onto the floor - Joni, cut that out - and even having the faintest notion what sort of sound it made as it hit the floor.
Rana, a deaf girl he'd once met, had said to him that she enjoyed music through the vibration of it, through what she could feel. Here and now, he wasn't quite doing that, his powers were definitely involved somehow, but it always slipped away before he could really quite figure it out.
And he had a sinking feeling in his guts that he didn't want what came with figuring it out, either.
So he sat. And he thought. And if the world went by without him for a few more days while he was like this, he'd be perfectly fine with that.
[OOC: Open for anyone who has any reason to come harass Jono! His bedroom door is shut, but if you think loudly enough at him, you'll get his attention. And because LJ loves breaking pages, here's the link to the Squall and Rinoa thread with Jono.]
