Theo and Sadde in the Buffyverse

Walking into the English classroom, Theo looks around.

He's just moved to a new school in California in the middle of October because his dad got a new job. It's not like he was particularly attached to his old school – while he's going to miss his friends, it's not exactly the end of the world – but really, he did not want to have to restart his life in a new school. Everyone's already split into groups and cliques through their high school experience so far, and the opportunity he would have had to integrate himself at the start of the year is gone, because it's October.

At least it's not April, he supposes. He still has a chance to find some new friends, and his schooling hasn't been interrupted much.

He goes up to the teacher, makes sure they realize that he's a new student, and gets directed to the only available seat in the classroom.

Which is right there at the back of the classrooom, beside a boy that... might be asleep. Or might've been asleep just before the new boy arrived, at which point he opened his eyes to regard him -

- and double take, ooh, new guy's cute.

Permalink

Theo quirks an eyebrow at the behaviour, but sits down and gets out a notebook. It's English, so he can't really fault the boy for trying to sleep through it.

Permalink

Theo sits, and the boy smiles up at him. "Hello," he whispers, once class is going on.

Permalink

Theo smiles too. "Hi," he whispers back, still writing notes.

Permalink

"I'm Sadde."

Permalink

"I'm Theo."

He looks over at Sadde's desk. Is he actually paying attention to the lesson, or is he just sitting there...?

Permalink

Just sitting there. Definitely just sitting there. "This is not the best situation for conversation so I'll continue pestering you later," he whispers when the teacher gives him a look.

Permalink

"Okay," he says agreeably, and continues note-taking.

Permalink

And class wears on, and Sadde pays no attention to it and dozes off a little, and the bell wakes him up.

Permalink

Well, Theo's been a good boy, paying attention in lessons.


It was terrible. Sleeping probably would've been a better use of his time.

Permalink

Sadde agrees! "Hey there, new guy!"

Permalink

"Uh, hi there, Sadde," he says. "I didn't exactly go anywhere?"

Permalink

"I can see that," he says. "Welcome!"

Permalink

"Thanks," Theo says, smiling at him. "What do you have next?"

Permalink

"Bio," he says. "So, why are you showing up so late?"

Permalink

"Yo new guy!" a jockish type echoes Sadde, then notices him there talking to Theo and looks at him with faint distaste. "You shouldn't waste your time with the freak."

Permalink

Theo was just about to respond to Sadde when he was interrupted.

"Uh, yo," he says, but then, confused by the reaction to Sadde, he continues, "What do you mean?"

Permalink

"Freaky faggot can't decide if it's a boy or a girl."

Permalink

Sadde seems unbothered by this. "Clearly you do not possess the necessary faculties to understand and memorize what I tell you, so I won't waste my breath."

Permalink

Theo looks confused. The boy looks pretty much like a boy, as far as he can tell, but he hasn't been here very long.

"What?" he asks, mostly of the jockish person.

Permalink

"You'll see," he snorts. "It likes using big words to feel smart like I can't understand what it's saying. Anyway, I'm Brad. You look big, you play football? We kinda need more people."

Permalink

Sadde snorts, too.

Permalink

"I'm more of a soccer guy, actually," he says, frowning a bit at the use of 'it'. Surely that's not something Sadde wants?

This guy seems like a bit of a dick.

Permalink

"Oh. Josh's the captain, you could talk to him."

Permalink

"And unlike Brad here, Josh is actually not a steaming pile of skunk turd."
