An Opeth Concert, Somewhere, Somewhen, Jono Wasn't Paying Attention, Friday Night
You know what made for an interesting outing when Jono absolutely had to get away from the island? Booking the cheapest Portalocity ticket he could find in order to take in some sort of concert, right now. Fandom was starting to come down on him like some sort of weight, and he couldn't quite put a finger on what it was, still. But Jonothon had procured tickets to Opeth, and wasn't opposed to making a trek through time and halfway across the planet to wherever Portalocity dropped him off in order to take a bit of a breather.

... That he happened to be going to the concert with a particularly stubborn snake coiled around him had been unforeseen, but at least he'd prepared a bag with Hannibal's clothing in it, just in case they happened to be out and about when he changed back.

Only... only it was intermission now, and it was starting to become increasingly clear that the bag had walked away on him.

//I thought you were watching it,// he mumbled to his serpentine companion as he browsed the overpriced clothing at the merch table, looking for something that would be... at least somewhat inoffensive to Hannibal's tastes and his own. //This isn't all on my head. You're the one who insisted on coming along.//

[OOC: NFI, open to that snekky guy!]

Hannibal gave Jono a sardonic look. "Because they looked like fun for a snake," he recalled. "And they were better than the stripes." Well, at least they were warm. And the shirt had an interesting design on it, even if t-shirts weren't really his style.

"I should be warm enough. Do you remember if they sold shoes out there?"

//Erm...// Jono gave his shoulders a shrug. //Sorry, mate.//

Honestly, he'd been impressed to find a merchandise booth at a concert that carried trousers in the first place.

//If that drunk Scottish bugger comes at us again, I'll happily lay him flat and steal his boots, though.//

He was only half joking.

Hannibal frowned. "What was he saying?" It had been odd, not being able to hear.

//He was just a half-trolleyed macho arsehole looking to pick a fight with someone,// Jono muttered, bunching up in the shoulders a little before getting up and dusting himself off. //Decided that snakes were chiché and bandages were either hilarious or personally offensive, couldn't even make out which, and took issue with me trying to walk away.//

Hannibal grimaced. Then he grinned. "Well, I don't imagine he'll make that mistake again any time soon."

//I think he bloody near shat himself,// Jono admitted, looking vaguely amused, himself. //Might've run off to get security or something after that, or maybe he's back to stumbling around giving people a difficult time and he's been seen out instead. Wouldn't much mind if it was that second one, really.//

"But that would leave me without shoes," Hannibal pointed out. He eyed the restroom floor which was...well, not precisely clean, but surprisingly non-hazardous, anyway. "Do you think it's likely to be safe?" He was a bit out of his environment here.

//Ehm... out in the lobby, probably. If we wait out the rest of the intermission so that we're not dodging potentially trampled toes, and we can keep an eye on whatever might've been dropped out there. I wouldn't strongly recommend going back in to watch the show without finding something to put on your feet first, though.//

That seemed, to Jono, like they'd be just asking for Hannibal to step on something sharp and laced or infected with something unpleasant.

Hannibal gave Jono an apologetic look. "Would you mind terribly leaving in the middle?" Unless they mugged someone for shoes, but that seemed a bit less tactful to suggest.

//Nah, I was starting to get twitchy anyway.// Jono shrugged his shoulders a little. //Since getting here I've already been robbed and manhandled. It has a funny way of taking some of the magic out of live entertainment. I'd much rather find somewhere quiet to wait out the rest of our time here before the portal back to the island shows up, I think.//

"Quiet?" Hannibal was a bit amused by that; he doubted there was such a place at a concert like this.

//Well... it'll be quieter once people head back into the auditorium,// Jono mumbled, shrugging. //Or it's warm outside. There's probably some sort of coffee shop that might not take too much exception to your being barefoot.//

He would still be amenable to kicking the drunk guy's ass to steal his boots, if that continued to be a problem, too.

"Coffee sounds lovely," Hannibal said. "And it isn't as though you can see much of my feet in these." They were just a tad long on him. Not to mention baggy. "I haven't had coffee in...how long has it been?" He hadn't been paying much attention as a snake.

//Just under a week,// Jono replied. //It's Friday, now. So, you missed your class, accompanied me to mine... I really need to talk to my students about their life choices.//

Kathy. We do not pet venomous snakes just because the teacher is wearing one to class. Not without at least asking permission, first. It wasn't as though he'd mentioned that the snake was Hannibal.

"Ah, yes. I remember your class." it was odd; it wasn't that he'd forgotten anything he'd experienced, but he'd had very different priorities as a snake, and hadn't bothered focusing on certain things. He grimaced at having missed another class, though. "I will have to apologize to my students."

Feeling more himself now, he headed for the door; as relatively clean as it was, this was still a public restroom, and with his sense of smell...
