Why Y'all Gagging?

Off to the corner of the utilities area is the tall radio tower and the small building that houses the radio equipment. Being the most important place for communication with the outside world, the radio tower was kept in immaculate condition and constantly maintained. Even now, covered in vines and overgrowth, it only shows a small hint of time's effects. The building next to it is essentially one small room filled with all the radio equipment that could possibly be needed to call the outside world, as well as a couple of chairs and a phone to call other parts of the island. Although all the equipment appears workable at a glance, closer inspection reveals key components missing, eliminating the ability to send signals of any sort.

And then everyone hopped onto Blair's joke to throw in their own variant. Typical.

Rene seemed to be in good spirits, though, and given her frankly surreal story, nothing too bad had happened to her. She also didn't look particularly threatening. She didn't seem to be armed, but then again, she had a big size advantage if she tried to use brute force on Blair.

Secretly, Blair wondered how long Rene's cheer would last here.

Cocking an eyebrow at the Nixon quote, Blair replied, "Nixon impersonator? Excuse me?" The lasy couple of words got gunked up partway up her esophagus. She cleared her throat and looked quizzically at Noah. "Do we have a Nixon impersonator in Kingman?"

Blair shook her head. "Whatever. You're okay though, I take it. I mean, not exactly shot up or anything."

Noah chuckled to himself. It was awesome that they had found one of the more jovial and good-spirited members of the student body this soon into the game. Maybe having another jokester around would keep morale up and keep them on the right track for the remainder of their time here. Noah sighed in relief. It could have been so much worse, and now his moment to the cameras seemed like a thing of the past.

Rene sure had a crazy story. Blair asked if there was a Nixon impersonator at Cochise, and he shook his head.

"No, no. The only crooks at Cochise are the administrators in charge of the budget, but that's beside the point," Noah said. "Not saying 'I'm not a crook' while playing Nixon is a goddamn travesty, and that impersonator should be ashamed. Ashamed I tell you!"

Noah chuckled.

"But no, we're good for now," Noah said. "I mean, some of us have had more unfortunate moments here so far, but overall we're not doing too badly. It sure as hell could be worse."

"It sure as hell could be," Sandra said, repeating the last bit of Noah's statement.

Sandra looked around at everyone gathered in the room, then at the room itself.

"So the verdict is... yeah, there was nothing useful here," she said, "But hey, we found Rene, so in that sense I guess we could consider that a success, right?"

Well. A success for the 'finding friends' plan, anyway. Sandra's smile dropped slightly. They were going to hole up in the south, and Sandra probably wasn't going to join them. She dreaded that moment approaching, and wondered whether or not they should head out already.

"We..." she started, before pausing.

She cleared her throat.

"Never mind."

"Seriously, I'm not making the part about the Nixon guy up." Rene insisted upon hearing the joking skepticism of the others. "The guy had a mask and everything. It's just too bad he didn't get the rest of the act right."

Now that she was inside, she took the opportunity to look around, not that there was much to see from her viewpoint. Just a radio station with some old junk lying around here and there, all of which had definitely seen better days. From the looks of things, nobody had attempted to send or receive anything resembling a radio signal from there in a long, long time. By proxy, this meant that her hopes of sending an SOS were pretty much dashed right there.

Well, shit.

"So let me get this straight." Rene held one hand in front of herself as she spoke. "What we're looking at here..." She waved her hand in a circular motion, gesturing to the area around her. "Is a whole lot of nothing, am I right?"

After a bit of joking around, they finally got to business. Blair was glad; on the one hand, it was nice to have a touch of brevity in the face of imminent doom. On the other hand, brevity wasn't good for being productive, and if Blair wanted to not die, she would need to be productive.

"Basically." Blair said with a shrug. "None of this crap works, so unless we find out someone on the trip had an electrical engineering degree, this is a dead end."

She turned back to look at Sandra. She'd been about to say something, but dismissed it. "Hey, Sandra." Blair said, cocking an eyebrow. "What were you saying a moment ago?" Blair knew as well as anyone that when someone said 'never mind', they were hiding something. And in this soon-to-be-hellhole, secrets were a good way to get murdered.

"C'mon, no secrets." Though Blair's tone was teasing, she meant business. Sandra had seemed distracted for a while, ever since the apartment complexes, and Blair didn't want to be hanging around someone if they were unreliable.

Noah nodded along with the statements the girls made about the radio tower. How it was empty, how they couldn't get it to work, how there was nothing of value there. It was the Republican National Convention of SOTF. Noah thought about making that joke to the girls, but decided to bite his tongue. They could joke and kiki when they were actually somewhere secure and with actual advantages.

Blair was trying to get some words out of Sandra, but Noah wasn't sure if it was necessary. Sandra probably started a train of thought, then lost it. He had experienced that many a times in his script writing, so he could chalk it up to stress getting in the way of her mental faculties.

"If she doesn't have anything to share, it's no biggie," Noah said to Blair. "Let's focus on more important things."

"For example," he continued, looking at Rene, "we're looking to hideout in a less populated area of the island. Does that appeal to you, or do you have any other ideas about how we should go about our time here?"

Never mind meant never mind, but Blair didn't want to let it go. Sandra grimaced for a second, before her regular expression returned. She opened her mouth and was about to speak, but Noah spoke for her. Sandra scratched her head as the feeling of irritation crept up on her.

"I was going to suggest that we leave soon," Sandra said, a hint of irritation in her voice, "I decided against it."

She moved over to the entrance, before leaning against the wall right beside the door.

"Since there's nothing here though, I guess I probably should've," she continued.

After a few seconds, she clicked her tongue, before opening the door.

"I'll be waiting outside," Sandra said finally.

Bad news: The radio tower was a complete bust in terms of actual usefulness. However, this was at least tempered with the good news that Rene had managed to find a friendly group of people who actually seemed to have some vague framework of a plan. That was definitely something that she could live with, no problem. Plus, these were people that she actually liked, so bonus points there.

But back to the plan. Rene's new friends wanted to go somewhere that probably wouldn't be overrun with people. This was a good plan and Rene agreed with it. Even better, she had a pretty good idea of where people would probably be around that time, so she could actually help out a bit in that regard.

"All right, so you wanna stay away from people?" She questioned with a declarative finger. "Well, I heard some bells a while ago, so we'd probably want to stay away from the bell tower or anywhere near it. I'm pretty sure if people weren't there before, they probably are now"

As if the universe had been waiting for this exact timing, Rene heard another loud chime as a wave of sound rolled through the area. She didn't change her expression in any major way. She just angled her eyes in the direction of the chime and waited for the ringing to run its course before getting back to her suggestion.

"So as I was saying, we definitely want to stay away from the bell tower or anywhere near it."

Fine, whatever. No need to get bitchy, Sandra. Blair asked a perfectly reasonable question, and she got all testy? The nerve. And freaking Noah took Sandra's side! Ugh.

Despite that, Blair only responded by nodding tersely with a slightly furrowed brow, making great effort to hold her tongue. As much as she'd like to say 'Excuse me? What kind of tone was that?' she was silent. Because as much as she felt annoyed, in the long run it wasn't quite worth it to start a fight. Who knew what might happen here when everyone had that niggling thought 'will I go home?'

Blair knew the answer. Spoilers; she wasn't going home. Yippee.

Because of Sandra having distracted Blair with her rudeness, Blair didn't hear the bell, or what Rene said. Something about the bell tower? "We're not going there, I don't think. I mean, me an' Noah and Sandra aren't. You can if you want." Blair shrugged.

Sandra said something about going outside, and Blair, slightly peeved at Sandra as she was, still had to admit there wasn't much point hanging around. "We should get going. If we're avoiding trafficked places, lots of people will probably think this place has stuff like we did."

Slipping past the others, Blair stepped under Sandra's arm and out the door. She wasn't quite sure what direction they were going, but whatever. Someone else could make themselves useful.

Noah let out an awkward chuckle as Sandra walked out of the radio tower. It wasn't his hope that the group could get snippy with one another, especially this soon into the ordeal. Obviously, they were going to be stressed out and bothered during their time here, but he at least hoped they had more time to process everything before things got really bad.

"Well, yeah, that's the idea," Noah said after Blair explained everything to Rene.

Blair was now heading outside with Sandra. At least now Sandra would be with someone else outside in case someone dangerous came along. Noah clutched Sawlaska and looked back at Rene.

"I'm fine avoiding the bell tower," he said. "We thought the ringing came from here, but that's clearly not where it came from. But hey, we at least found another cool chick to join our posse. Heh heh."

Noah scratched the back of his head.

"So yeah, I think we'll head out," he said. "We're thinking of checking the southern area. Feel free to come along."

Noah smiled and walked past Rene towards the exit. At least they found a friend in the tower. It wasn't the best thing to find in the tower, but surely Rene could bring some much needed levity to the group as they made their way towards the southern wilderness. Anything would be better than remembering that they're here right now.
