March 8, Lunchtime, Student Union Cafeteria.

((Everyone and anyone is welcome and encouraged to jump in))

Jonathan, who has certainly not been a mainstay at the Student Union building, or it's cafeteria, stops by in the afternoon to grab a quick early bite to eat, settling down at an empty table by the window.

Why on earth am I eating this crap, he ponders, thinking of the stack of ingredients he and Nathan have back in Rowan Hall and of what better-tasting and likely healthier grub he could cook up. Oh, right. Aside from my mood, I'm getting a bit tired of cooking. What a laugh Nate would have at that.

The meal drags on interminably as Jonathan gazes out the window and picks at his food, lacking much by way of appetite at the moment. His posture gives away a certain tension. He mutters a few words to himself and keeps staring out the window.

"I am going to get extremely drunk tonight," he declares to himself, loud enough to be overheard at any of the neighboring tables, which he hasn't been paying attention to since he arrived.

Derek carries a tray, piled with some fruit, a large salad, and what passes as a hamburger (no fries). Finding a seat near Jonathan's table, by coincidence, he proceeds to dig in.

"I am going to get extremely drunk tonight," he declares to himself, loud enough to be overheard at any of the neighboring tables, which he hasn't been paying attention to since he arrived.

Derek looks over at the declaration. With a broadening smile as he recognizes Jonathan, he says aloud, "Sounds like the beginnings of a plan."

Jonathan snaps out of his reverie when he realizes he said the quiet part loud, and he blushes deeply as he turns to see Derek at the neighboring table.

"Yeah, I guess it is. I didn't give any thought to what I'd do once I was elegantly wasted, if anything. The getting drunk was more of the plan in itself. It's a bit of a tradition I indulge in, though I was kind of hoping to avoid it this early into term."

Ah, what the hell?

"Care to join me?" Jonathan asks, not specifying out of hand whether the invitation is to sit at his table or to join him for the night's binge.

At another nearby table, Morag stretches, and sighs with frustration and suppressed anger, turning the page in her family violence textbook and taking another bite of her sandwich.

** Between studying for the psych mid-term and slogging through all these depressing case studies, if I don't find a way to blow off some steam soon somebody's going to get hurt... **

The words of the two fae nearby filter through and catch her attention, and she drops the book and looks up. "Don't tell me there's actually a decent bar somewhere in this town?"

"Yeah. In-house'd be fine if it was for anything other than drinking, becuase I'd love to do something, but I'd also like to be able to stay in-house after tonight. I'm open to suggestions for activities or places. Anything to take my mind off things - the post-breakup binge was really just the first thing that came to mind."

Silent part loud again, dude, what's going on today?

"Someone say something about drinking?" Clayton said, walking up with a tray full of "health" food: lots of veges, a tuna-fish wrap, milk and as few carbs as possible.

"I have a car and will DD if people chip in for gas money. And if we go clubbing, it'll give me a chance to burn off a beer early in the evening." He grins, picturing the bunch of Wilders going out on the town.

Derek chuckles, "I appreciate the offer, but unless you're going to strap me to the roof, I doubt I'll be able to take you up on that."

Geain nods sympathetically and leans all the way over her table to pat his arm. "Was she someone you met here or an old sweetheart?"

-Geain nods sympathetically and leans all the way over her table to pat his arm. "Was she someone you met here or an old sweetheart?"-

Jonathan seems quite at ease with the stranger's gesture, cracking a weak smile.

"Met 'er here. She's a great girl, just couldn't handle me, I guess."

Nodding again, Geain breaks the over-sized gingersnap she picked up for desert in half and offers one of them to Jonathan. "I've had that happen before too and I think it's mostly that some people just can't handle our intensity as well as others, especially if they aren't on the same..well, the same team, so to speak."

Jonathan accepts the gingersnap and takes a bite, savouring the flavor, seeing as his lunch wasn't so great.

"I don't think that was it, but I think she thought that some things just don't seem as good an idea the next morning as the night before."

It's pretty obvious what he's referring to, but he's not saying it with a bragging tone. He sounds more resigned about it than anything.

With a slight, furtive glance towards Morag, Geain holds out the other half of the cookie towards the redcap though the majority of her attention stays fixed on Jonathan.

"That's an excuse for a three tequilla evening if I've ever heard one."
