Skeletons and Spaghetti

The Cochise cafeteria is a large, open room with tile floors and round tables scattered throughout. It has wide, tall windows which provide excellent lighting, though the view through them is generally uninteresting, revealing the front of campus and the street beyond. To get food, students travel along a line marked off by duct tape on the floor, to a counter where the cafeteria employees offer both school-prepared lunches and various (more expensive) brand-name foods. The school food is alright but unspectacular, but the line tends to be long and the table space is limited; if students arrive anywhere after the start of the lunch period, they can easily find themselves spending half the period in line and then unable to find a seat. As such, students often pack their own lunches, and many prefer to eat outside the cafeteria.

((Penelope Fitzgerald continued from Diaries))

Penelope sat back in her chair in the cafeteria.

The cafeteria was, as usual, filled to the brim with people. The noise of their conversation filled the room and drowned out the normal ambient noises of the air conditioning and the clatter of trays and utensils. The smells of the low quality food being served were very mixed, Penelope had no idea what the cafeteria was actually dishing out to the hungry students today. The school normally served some sort of meat as the main dish, which was a big reason she brought her own vegetarian lunch, but she liked to know what they were serving just out of curiosity. Usually when she couldn't tell what was being served she simply looked at the trays of her friends that would sit with her, but today none of her friends had sat down yet. This wasn't entirely unusual, it happened sometimes, but Penelope was getting very nervous due to being alone in a crowded and noisy room.

Her friends not being present only added to the day being an odd one. Today had been a very strange day for her. She turned in the normal assignments and homework and did the normal in-class work, but every teacher she had so far was absent, being filled in for by a substitute. She presumed there was some sort of big staff meeting going on that caused all of them to be missing, but she wasn't sure, and ultimately the reason didn't really matter. Along with that, both of her parents had things to do today, so she was left alone in the house with her two sisters that morning. So many adults and other people being missing all at once just left her feeling odd; she always gets nervous when routine is broken. With routine came comfort, and with oddities came anxiety.

Penelope ate the last bits of the vegetarian spaghetti she packed in her lunch in the morning and put the container away in her lunch bag. She leaned back in her chair a bit more as she started drinking some of the bottled peach tea she kept in her backpack. Even when nervous due to being alone in a crowded area, Penelope never betrayed it, always appearing relaxed on the outside, even if she wasn't entirely relaxed on the inside.

As Penelope sat there hoping at least one friend would show themselves, she reached into her bag and pulled out her 3DS, flipping it open and booting up Animal Crossing in one swift motion.

[Fiyori Senay, continued from Just Wants a Distraction

There were quite a few people who came to the cafeteria without actually eating any of the offered lunches. They did it for a bunch of different reasons. Some were vegetarians, or worse - vegans, who disliked the meat-heavy menu. There were other people, of course, who had allergies, and couldn't eat the food without dying. Perhaps there were even those whose reason was that they were flat-out too poor.

Fiyori, at least, belonged to the category of people who simply didn't like the food's quality. The young woman was a fairly decent cook. She could say that even the greatest catastrophe she ever produced would be more valuable than any of the cafeteria's food. Now, she wouldn't say that thing in particular. Would be kinda rude. And only like, 65 percent true.

There was someone else sitting at her table. Fiyori glanced at the girl's food from time to time, figuring out that she was one of the veggies. She was curious. Did the girl prepare these? Was it her mother? Or father? Regardless, would they taste good? Some veggies turn out to be decent cooks, what with this whole focus on food they have.

The girl finished eating. Fiyori continued with her own salad, but noticed that she took out a DS. There, interest piqued again. Now, Fiyori kinda hated that habit of some. This stupid thing where people wanna know what's happening on your screen and they lean real close over your shoulder. She didn't say she hated it though. 'Cause that'd be hypocritical. Fiyori stared over the girl, slowly munching salad. There it was, this dumb urge to see what she was playing.

((Rene Wolfe: pregame start))

Lunch period was awesome. It was a well-deserved break from the endless lectures and quizzes that make up most of the school day, and it let you refuel so that you have enough energy for the rest of the day. Or at least that's how Rene felt about it. There was only one problem, and that was the fact that the food in the cafeteria, frankly speaking, tended to suck.

Fortunately, Rene had a plan in store to counteract that little issue. Two slices of leftover pizza brought from home that, despite being cold, she figured were probably better than whatever was being served out of the cafeteria that day. And judging by what she smelled when she passed by the lunch line, she figured that she was right.

She sat back in her chair and enjoyed her lunch while wondering what it was about pizza that made it almost as good when eaten cold as it was hot. Once she was through with her first slice, crust and all, she looked over at the rest of the table. There were two other girls sitting there, and one of them was playing a DS. Huh. Rene was starting to wish that she had brought her DS. Sure would make the dead time spent waiting for classes to start more interesting. She leaned over to try to start a conversation. It beat just sitting there quietly and waiting for class to start back up.

"Hey, whatcha playing?"

((ASTRID TATE: PREGAME START!!!!)))

Much to the misfortune of pretty much anyone who got in her way that day, Astrid was in a sour mood. A whole host of stuff had gone wrong for her today. Each one by themselves would have been fine, but having them stack on top of each other, one by one, was like a flame slowly growing, right next to a stack of dynamite.

First of all, Astrid had a headache, which seemed determined to continue tormenting her, no matter how much paracetamol she took. It had been there, just above and behind her eyes, since she’d woken up that morning, and there it remained, sending jolts of pain coursing through her skull during every lesson. Even during her history class earlier, her favourite lesson, she had found it impossible to concentrate properly.

What didn’t help was the fact that she’d ended up getting into a completely pointless argument with some moron during history. They had made some asinine point about the War of the Roses – Astrid could hardly remember what it even was, that was how pointless it was – and she had simply attempted to politely correct him. The guy had been too far up his own ass to actually listen; he’d even attempted to argue the point when Astrid brought out a textbook proving him wrong, for Christ’s sake. Eventually he’d admitted he was wrong, but the damage had already been done. Astrid had left that lesson pissed off and frustrated. Sure, she’d ‘won’ eventually, but it was like winning an argument against a brick wall; an inevitability that just makes everyone feel stupid and annoyed.

To cap it all off, she’d forgotten to bring her lunch today. It wasn’t anything incredibly exciting, just some tuna pasta salad, but she had made it herself so she knew what went into it, unlike… whatever it was they were serving in the cafeteria today.

Astrid looked down at the tray she was holding and made a noise of disgruntlement. Apparently the meat on the plate in front of her was supposed to be beef. She didn’t like beef, and she especially didn’t like ‘beef’ coated in some mystery sauce. But food was still food, and she wasn’t going to go hungry for the rest of the day.

Astrid surveyed the cafeteria, and made another noise of annoyance. For a place that served not-great lunches, and that gave the option to eat outside, the room always seemed to be packed. There were only a few spaces left that she could see, and even they were in danger of being swallowed up. Astrid quickly made her way over to the nearest one, and parked herself at a table containing three other girls. She vaguely recognised them as Penelope, Fiyori and Rene, and she had no interest in any of them. They weren’t in her friendship group, and none of them shared her interests, as far as she was aware. Still, she gave a curt nod in their direction as way of greeting, before settling down and hoping none of them would be too annoying. Penelope was playing on some sort of games console, and whilst Astrid had absolutely no interest in gaming whatsoever, she had no qualms with those who did.

If Penelope decided to turn the volume up obnoxiously loud, however… well, she was gonna be in for a bad time.

Penelope looked up from her game when she heard someone ask what she was playing.

There were three girls at the table. Two of them, Fiyori and Rene, had been there for a while. The other girl, Astrid, had just sat down. Penelope was familiar with who they were as classmates, but she couldn't say she was friends with them. Penelope got ever so slightly annoyed at being asked what she was playing; she never usually drew attention until she started fiddling with a device that evokes curiosity out of people due to whatever novel function it has. Still, she didn't let this annoyance show in her face or in her voice. "Animal Crossing: New Leaf." She answered, abruptly.

Normally Penelope liked interacting with strangers, just for the sake of being a weirdo to them. But when she's in game mode, she would often rather just be left to it. And as much as Penelope would rather just say what she was playing and leave it at that, Penelope figured that simply leaving it probably wouldn't actually accomplish anything. She knew how people worked. Rene would ask another question about the game, and Penelope would respond, not wanting to seem like she was being rude. So, in order to get that out of the way somewhat, she decided to answer the most obvious question ahead of time. "I really like the game for how relaxing it is to play, ya know? There's no real win conditions and there are no real threats, so it's something that's super easy to pass time with." She paused, briefly. "Normally I don't get too into casual games like Animal Crossing, but it's sweet and cute and uninvolved enough that I can give it a pass."

Penelope took a sip of her tea and looked back down at her game, continuing to tap away at the buttons, donating the fossils she had collected from the town that day to the town's museum.

Fiyori waited like 16 or 17 days, or maybe only a few seconds until another girl brought salvation from guilt. Rene, the chubby ghost of Kingman. Oh no, that kinda sounded mean, but Fiyori held no ill will against her. They just weren't particularly close and so Fiyori's brain just goes "oh yes, this is chubby ghost" whenever she saw her. Yes, terrible. Fiyori doesn't recall ever saying this to her face. Figured she'd take it with grace though. Rene had this strange habit of commenting on people all the time. Said a lot of funny stuff, got Fiyori laughing.

Either way, it was Rene who eventually broke the "silence" and asked what was going on in the magical DS.

Her answer was brief and dry. Animal Crossing. Fiyori heard of it. Didn't play it though. Penelope, not particularly good at hiding her sourness, gave a further explanation. Fiyori looked over to the pair, listened, and eventually decided that the game was boring after all.

Another girl sat down, who was called Astrid and was probably from planet Earth. Fiyori glanced over, and nodded.

Well this was just delightful, wasn’t it?

It was lucky for Astrid that Penelope was sitting to her left. It meant she could actively side-eye her without looking like she was going cross-eyed. She’d heard of the game Penelope was playing, somehow, somewhere. Seen a couple videos or gifs of it online too. It didn’t interest her in the slightest, and if she had to be honest – and, given Astrid was Astrid, she did have to be honest – she couldn’t understand why it would interest anyone else.

Astrid leaned herself and her chair back, a sure-fire sign that she was about to start lecturing someone. For a moment though, she reconsidered. She’d just gotten done with a pointless argument that went absolutely nowhere. She didn’t exactly want to get into another one so soon, especially not over a subject she hardly cared about.

On the other hand, she didn’t have much of an alternative. Astrid realised this as she looked down at her tray. Just eating this… mockery of meat was bad enough, but if she was gonna focus on it and nothing else, then she might just scream. So it was either potentially getting into a pointless argument or eating what might as well be pure, unfiltered garbage.

Great. It was only lunchtime and she was already stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Well, one was less unpleasant than the other. Besides, if worst came to the worst, Astrid could always claim she was just stating her opinion. After all, technically that was true. She carved off a piece of ‘beef’, under some sort of impression that doing both things would cancel each other out through sheer awfulness, chewed it for far longer than should have been necessary, before opening her mouth to speak.

“Y’know, I think I’ve heard of that game.”

Astrid swallowed the slice of beef, pulling a face, before continuing. How did it get to be simultaneously tough and slimy?

“Yeah, I think my cousin plays it, or something. Got something to do with animals and collecting fruit, right? And you’re saying there’s no real win conditions?”

Astrid looked down at her plate, wrestling with her piece of beef, feeling like she was trying to chisel Excalibur out of the stone with her knife and fork.

“Seems like a big waste of time, if you ask me.”

The other girl - the one called Astrid - decided to speak up too. Knew the game too, heard of it, at least. Commented on the content of the game, something about animals and fruits. Fiyori looked at her, watching Astrid try and wrestle with her lunch. She figured there was something else she wanted to say.

Seems like a big waste of time, if you ask me.

Oh boy.

So Astrid was one of those people. You know, those piss bags who just like to cause conflict. Okay, alright. Fiyori wasn't technically much better in that regard. But at least she didn't call someone's else interests a waste of time just 'cause she found it boring.

Anyway, Fiyori was in no mood for this ensuing argument. Lunch time was over. She quickly packed her belongings, stood up, nearly tripped once and then quickly noped the fuck out of that minefield.

Penelope's ear twitched.

She glanced over at Astrid for a second, before turning her head back towards the game. She considered what she should do. Should she respond to the girl curtly, given that she seemed like she wanted to start an argument? Fiyori ended up getting up and leaving, so it seemed that Penelope wasn't the only one who had picked up on Astrid's intentions. Should she just defuse it? Astrid seemed like the type of girl that would be nasty if an argument actually began, even if Penelope was perfectly calm and composed like she nearly always was.

"Yeah, I guess you could call it a waste of time. It's inherently designed to be a time sink. I play it when I don't want to do anything else but I don't want to sit around doing nothing." Penelope took another sip from her tea. "It's cute enough to keep my attention, and that's what matters."

Penelope fiddled with the tea bottle's cap as she rearranged the furniture in her in-game house. She hoped that response satisfied Astrid. She seemed like the type that wouldn't be happy unless she felt she was right.

Astrid glanced at Fiyori and raised an eyebrow as high as it would go, as the other girl stood up almost as soon as Astrid had finished talking. Oh come on. That just made the whole thing look worse than it actually was. Astrid was in absolutely no mood to get into even a minor debate right now, let alone a no-holds-barred screaming fest. She watched Fiyori almost perform an incredible faceplant before leaving, then turned back to Penelope, rolling her eyes, shaking her head and taking a deep breath.

Astrid listened to Penelope describe the game in a little more detail, taking another bite of… no, she couldn’t even call it food. Even her earliest experiments at cooking hadn't tasted this bad. She pulled another disgusted face, and shoved the plate to one side. If she was really hungry after all this was done, then maybe she’d go back to it. But not before then, absolutely not.

“So let me get this straight.” Astrid said, furrowing her brow. She wanted to choose her words carefully; Penelope didn’t seem like the sort to lash out in response to an offending sentence, but you really couldn’t tell with people. It was always the quiet ones, and other cliche statements.

“It’s your go to when the only option available to you is just… lounging around on the sofa, doing nothing? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing against video games. Like, I don’t have any interest in them or anything, but I know they can develop some skills and shit, and some people make a living off of them. That’s fine, but this-“Astrid gestured towards Penelope’s DS.

“-This doesn’t seem to have any of those benefits, other than ‘cuteness’.”

Astrid leaned back in her chair, folding her arms. Now she was interested in what other reasons Penelope had for playing this game, because as far as Astrid could see, it would bore her to tears. She'd read online that many doctors were using video games in order to heighten their skills, or something like that, but surely it couldn't be this game.

“No offense, but surely you could be doing something else with your time? Something more productive? Something more…” Astrid waved her hand in the air, trying to swat down the right phrase.

“Something more interesting, maybe?”
