He smirks. "In what ways is it cooler than pastafarianism? Like, noodles and pasta are literally holy – whether you're a believer or not – I don't think anyone can dispute that."

Permalink

"Yeah, but like, no one Pastafarians seriously. People totally Discordian seriously, it's badass."

"Okay," he says, taking it and having a look at it. "And is this just a copy you're sharing around with people?"

Permalink

"It's a library copy," she explains patiently, pointing to the purple dot on the spine. "You sit down on the floor and you read it."

Permalink

"… Okay, right, I don't get what the point of your protest is, then— or does the color-coding only apply to actual borrowing?"

Permalink

"Yes exactly! So, like, it's a sit-in, and we're proving that if they won't let us check out the books we'll read them anyway!"

Permalink

"I mean, it is a stupid system, but I'm not sure how effective this is gonna be."

He does, however, sit down and take a longer look at the book, unless she continues to talk to him.

Permalink

"Oh, it usually works," Faith says blithely, "people eventually want me to stop annoying them and so they do what I want. Protests are great."

The book is very odd. The writing alternates between weird, florid logical convolutions and bizarre humor. It's really unclear how seriously it takes itself.

Permalink

Okay, well, it's sort of… weirdly interesting.

He'll read it for a few minutes and then hand it back to Faith. "That was… weird," he says.

Permalink

"Want something less weird? I went for purple because I don't know what colors you have, but I can pick a different category if you tell me your age and English class."

Permalink

"I'm eighteen," he says, and then… proceeds to describe his English class, on account of being new and not actually knowing. Does his timetable help? It might?

Permalink

"Oh, darn, you're eighteen, that means you're good for red. Um. You could have blue if you wanted, that's the easy-reader books."

Permalink

"… I think I might just go get some food, actually," he says. "I might be back after, though?"

Permalink

"Fine. Cave to the system," she sniffs.

Permalink

He shrugs and goes off to the cafeteria to get some food.

Any people he can try to sit with? Anyone who seems like they might invite him over, or like they might not mind him impinging on their personal space?

The guy from earlier smiles at Theo when he sees him. He's with the other girl from the library -- the one with the black eye -- and there's some empty seats at their table, if Theo wants to join.

Otherwise, there's various empty seats, with people breaking up more or less into the stereotypical jocks/nerds/band/popular/etc. divisions. No one really looks actively hostile, at least.

Permalink

He… will indeed go over with his food to that guy and say, "Hey! Mind if I sit?"

Permalink

"Please do! Theo, right? This is my sister Em."

Permalink

"Yeah, uh – Reuben, right?" he asks, taking a seat and saying, "Hi" to Em.

Permalink

"Got it in one!"

Permalink

"Hey! You new here?"

Permalink

"Yeah – just got here Saturday."

Permalink

"Sunnydale's a nice place! A bit dangerous after dark, but the weather's good. How come you moved here?"

Permalink

"Oh," he shrugs and waves his hand vaguely. "My dad, jobs, things. What do you mean it's dangerous after dark, though?"

Permalink

"Oh, you know. People get up to stuff. Teenage guys get bored, gangs or whatever. Just be careful, that's all."
