Onward, Into Darkness

[Around dinnertime, when everyone has gone to their rooms and had their time to think about the day, a note is slipped underneath your door. It reads:

I've made soup for everyone tonight.
It would be a kindness if you were to come to the cafeteria and partake.
- Jane


And, true to the letter, when you enter the cafeteria, you're hit with the distinct smell of pumpkin. There's a large covered pot on one of the tables filled to the brim with a sweet pumpkin soup full of carrots and sweet potatoes, a ladle beside the pot, and a stack of bowls and spoons. There's even enough cutlery for Bolton and Jamie to come, if they want to show up - Jane is, if anything, an excellent host. Please help yourself! There's plenty more! is on a folded bit of paper beside the pot, but where is Jane?

Well, the kitchen door is propped open, and she's very diligently working on scraping out the remains of a huge, tasty pumpkin and setting the seeds aside. She sniffs every once in a while, and her face is a blotchy mess, but she's still going. Having something to do seems to keep her from diving too deeply into despair.

Just...don't let her, or yourselves, be distracted forever.]

[Xander manages to get through the teleporter, he manages to start walking towards the rooms. He speaks to no one, he touches no one. Just looks forward.

One foot after another. No stumbling, though his pace is slow- like something that wasn't meant to walk and was only going through self destructive stubborn will. If no one calls out to him he will simply go into his room.

He won't be at the party.]

[It's quiet for too long. Long enough to be terrifying. Before finally- thick with a stutter that seems too heavy and innate to just be from tears]

I...w-would rather not, Jane.

[Like all true true Nohrians we hide our grief, our pain and our screams alone in the dark]

[Yeah, there's a lot of people who shouldn't be alone right now, and Xander's about at the top of the list. So the Doctor's going to knock on his door a bit.]

[No soup, but he does have a small package of snacks from the cat cafe. And some kind of bottle from the bar.]


Xander, I'm not gonna pretend this is a good time, but do you have a moment?

[Damn it, will no one let him sleep? Well, to be fair Jane hasn't shown up yet. Still, it takes long enough for him to answer to be alarming, but when he does open his door a bit his eyes are dull and dark. Like pools of drying blood set into his face.]

I have nothing but time.

The glitters still there. But it's not the first time.

She eats her soup in sober silence. There's not much to say or do, really. Even later in the evening she might go to the diner and lay out some rosemary on the altar, and after that she supposes she will sleep and learn yet another horrible facet of her own past. But this is now, and what's happening now is that she's eating soup. Truly this is a scintillating toplevel. ]
