 my lucifer is lonely \\ meeting 4.13
« on: April 13, 2019, 06:00:42 PM »
another week. another meeting. hayley had sort of decided that doing them on saturday's was just the way to go, and though she was doing it later once more this week, that was on purpose. her plate had hardly half of a serving on it, and though she cleaned it, she didn't move for more. she sat patiently, quietly, let everyone finish the food, and the cafeteria doors were shut to discourage anyone from leaving until the meeting. she sat there, absentmindedly playing with hope, occasionally glancing up until she saw that most people had finished off their food. then, she stood, passed hope off to brendan, then stood up and ascended to the tabletop.

❝alright everyone, it's time for a meeting.❞ she called out, stuffing her hands into the pockets of her pants as she glanced around.

tag: n/a. words: 123.
brendan has zero fricken clue however many meetings he’s been in at this point. It’s been over like, what, a year and a half since he’s been in these kinds of groups...? So definitely a lot—he’s thinking around one hundred. Which...is an insane exaggeration, chances are, but...whatever; he’s been in a crap ton, case closed.

Blinking, the fourteen-year-old bunches his shoulders together awkwardly as Hope gets handed towards him without any word, but he gingerly grabs hold of the kid anyways, setting her on his lap. He isn’t that far into his meal—mostly halfway, but still not finished—yet he brings his stare back up towards Hayley, sighing just a little bit. Hopefully this meeting won’t be a fricken disaster like the last one.

(( in a drive thru so here’s this piece of garbage ))

mickey had kind of been keeping himself up in his room, only really leaving to do his usual medical duties and rounds. life had just been getting really tough on him lately; he was trying to give himself a break before another harsh twist of fate came in to try and ruin his life some more. so far, his little mental break had been well-needed, and he was feeling like he could finally start getting back into the swing of things. into the swing of being social, talking to people besides himself and the occasional person (miles… besides himself and miles). messing with his plate of food, he glanced around absently, mind only deciding to focus on anything once hayley stepped up on the tabletop. meeting.

judging by hayley’s rather laid back posture - hands in her pant pockets, no fire lit in her eyes - he could only hope there wasn’t much bad news in this meeting.

・゚✧ — In the months Ellie had spent in Flintlock, she was quick to become habituated to the routine every week. She knew that another meeting was due when she sat at the table, twirling her fork in her food as she watched the colors of her dinner merge together. She never really had much to say during dinnertime, often found chatting mindlessly to those sat around her. But, this time, it was clear to see that she hadn't quite been herself lately. Leaving a plate of food half unfinished, the aversion she had to certain foods put her off eating entirely. Plus, the queasiness wasn't much help either.

Instead, she lowered her fork onto the plate as Hayley began to rise on the table, indicating the beginning of yet another meeting. She hooked her lip between her teeth thoughtfully, soft gaze peering up to her friend as the woman announced the beginning of the meeting. Not very much had happened in the past week for Flintlock in general, apart from the camping event of course. But, for Ellie, it'd been a big week - a heart-wrenching week. All she could do was sigh gently, waiting for Hayley to begin talking.

the pressure was on now. shit.

❝let's start with the bad part,❞ she said, eyes shifting over everyone, ❝we had a bad harvest.❞ she let the words rest for a few seconds, left a beat of emptiness in the air. ❝one of the greenhouses was taken down with the last of the frost from winter. over night, it literally fall apart, and it was one of the bigger ones. the current estimates are that about thirty percent of our crops were destroyed because of it.❞ though her voice was loud enough to carry, her tone was low, solemn.

❝we still have trading with bluestem, but it's bringing us to just enough, not more, like we'd hoped for. it means that everyone gets one serving at each meal, no seconds or double portions. pregnant women are allowed more, but i'll be abstaining. and before any of you try to start refusing meals, you won't be of any use to anyone half starved. the absolute basic science will tell you the human body converts food to energy, and no food means no energy.❞ she kept her tone hard, eyes shifting across the board, lingering on people she knew had a habit of being too selfless.

❝now, i'd like to welcome thor and roscoe. i swear we usually have food, but y'know, deadly mountain and all that. moving on, i'm going to have to demote blake. it's been a slow week for everyone, so that's it, but y'know... we can't all go dying.

❝okay, onto the good shit. for starters, tonight we've been invited to a party over in springfield. most of you guys might not know about them, they've maintained a very low profile over the years, and that's on purpose. they're good people, a shitload of doctors who've sworn some sort of oath to do no harm, and i'd personally recommend everyone to show up, but attendance is always optional. but they do make some really good food. it's black tie, as in, only black and white clothes, so dress up nicely. they also do a pat down at the front door for weapons, so expect that.❞

now came the actual good thing. the thing she'd spent hours locked in her office working on, and she was fairly confident this would make it all a hell of a lot more enjoyable. ❝now comes the real surprise,❞ she said, and smiled a bit at that one, picking up her walkie talkie and bringing it close to her mouth, ❝jared, c'mon in.❞ after a moment, the doors to the cafeteria opened, and in walked travis-the-npc, pushing along an av card, a television atop it. ❝i've managed to fix up this television, and piece together a solar panel to power it. in the corner of one of the storage closets, i found a few boxes of dvd's. for those of you who haven't put it together, this means we can watch movies. not at all hours, there's work to be done still, but in our free time, we can pop one in and watch some tv. so, after dinner anyone who's interested, go have a seat in the livingroom. tonight, we're going to be watching this movie called twilight. and if you, uh, don't know what a movie is, then get ready to find out.❞ she explained, and glancing around, cleared her throat.

❝otherwise, meeting dismissed.❞ she announced, stepping down from the table and retrieving hope from brendan.


tl;dr
- there was a bad harvest, so food's a little short, but they have just enough to pull through.
- welcome to thor and roscoe!!
- party in springfield here!
- party in bluestem coming up tomorrow!
- blake was demoted, and i'd like to see a little more activity from the rest of the hp's (except for hoot, you're doing great as always). it's a slow week, but high position's are the backbone for activity.
- jared the npc brought in an av cart with a tv on it, so characters can now watch movies at their will. however, after dinner there's a showing for twilight, so it's time for your character to decide if they're team edward or team jacob.

"speech" 'thought' text
tw: mentions blood, profanity, violence, mention of death

Mary was tired, but not too tired to attend the lodges meal and meeting. Plus it was a chance to get to know her fellow... lodgers better. While she didn't know if she was going to stay for a long time, she did know that she'd be around for the spring and summer, because she needed to make connections and trade, and get to know people... even if she was really bad at it sometimes... seriously bad.

So, here she was sitting at a table eating quietly, and listening to Hayley. At the mention of a movie she looked up, she knew what they were, but she hadn't really... watched any... ever. She hadn't been old enough to remember them anyways. But she had read the book "Twilight" and... maybe this movie would be like the book, if so, she was actually a bit worried, the book had been odd, strange, she didn't really think vampires sparked, it didn't make sense.

That and, all the other literature she'd read about vampires did not mention sparkles, maybe it was just a specific kind of vampire, who knew? Mary shrugged her shoulders and smiled cheerfully, the idea of watching a movie was actually quite exciting to her.
just passing through.

"speech" 'thought' text
tw: mentions blood, injury, violence, profanity

And here he was, Miles, yep, here at a meeting, here for food. He still needed to have a long talk with his sister, and he still needed to give his wound a bit more time to heal. But he was up and walking, so, it was great. The brunette didn't really want to be up and about, but apparently there was nothing keeping him from it, and so, here he was for food.

He listened quietly to the announcements, though he really didn't want to... in fact, he just wanted to sit beside Mickey, the doctor was... possibly one of the only people he could consider a friend here, the kid Brendan didn't like him, and Hayley was still trying to figure out what the fuck he had told her, but he didn't blame her, it was hard to find out that one was... not alone in the world.

He had dealt with that feeling too when he first found out about the possibility of Hayley being alive. He'd stopped thinking of her by her birth name, she'd been going by his sister's name for so long, there didn't seem much point in calling her something else. As Hayley brought up twilight, he groaned audibly. He'd been nine or so when the blackout happened, and that meant he'd seen the Twilight movies, (honestly he wished he hadn't).

Well, if they were going to watch a movie, might as well have a good time with a certain someone. Grunting softly he stood, plate in hand, and moved himself towards where Mickey was, he'd rather spend the majority of the evening with the doctor than with anyone else.

・゚✧ — The mention of the bad harvest had Ellie slowly lower her gaze down to the plate of half-finished food. A slow grimace grew to her face, guilty that she'd wasted so much - but, she couldn't help it. Not that the food wasn't palatable, but her lack of appetite made her cringe at the sight of the warm meal. She tipped her head to the side in thought, subtly pushing the plate away from her regardless.

Next was talk about the upcoming party. Ellie had been there to greet the Springfielders when they first arrived, and of course Ellie was incredibly excited to go to the party that evening. After all, she'd met the group's leader - need she say any more? She tucked her hair behind her ear, wanting to smile to herself before she was distracted by the doors opening and a television being pushed into the room. Ellie hadn't watched a film in a long, long time. Eyes lit up in anticipation, listening to Hayley announce what film they were going to watch tonight. Ellie clasped her hands together, accompanied with a gleeful smile. "I'm definitely team Jacob." She pointed out to no one in particular. Of course she'd be going to the living room to watch the film tonight.

Michael Reynolds
Dallas Darrow
As usual, the kids were eating dinner, quietly talking amongst themselves until Hayley got up and delivered the meeting. The news was bad enough that it even got through to Dallas, who looked down guiltily at her plate. "Don't," her brother whispered, "you're helping put food on the table." That was more than he was doing. He was teaching the kids, yeah, but that didn't require as much energy as going up and down the mountainside, hauling meat up to the Lodge.

There were good things though, things that Michael tried to focus on instead. "A party sounds like fun, yeah?" Dallas shrugged, still worried. Truth be told, it wasn't just guilt about how much food she was eating, it was how much she wasn't bringing in. She should be picking up the slack, right? At least the movie and the party sounded fun. "What does team Jacob mean?" She asked Ellie, being wholly unfamiliar with Twilight.
