Being a degenerate is okay these days

Raina took a step back and pressed one of her raised hands over her heart, as if to still it. "Jesus, Beaks, you scared me."

Johnny's reaction was right the opposite, pulling Beaks into a rough hug. Raina gave Scarlett a friendly nod rather than following suit. Personal space, and all that. She'd let Johnny and Beaks do their dude-hug thing and then get back to business.

"We were just coming up looking for a place to chill for a while, actually," she said. Too casual? Possibly too casual, given the circumstances. Ah well, it fit the mood that Beaks seemed to bring with him wherever he showed his pointy little face. He and Johnny were practically half a petting zoo all on their own.

"The stairs are back that way, and there's a front entrance on the ground floor. Dunno if I'd really want to head out there, but I guess this place is enough of a wreck that outside seems kind of nice." Nice and exposed, if nothing else. Raina reached up to rub at the back of her neck, absently. The strap of the bag was starting to rub irritatingly against her skin.

"Stay out of the basement, though. It's full of water and completely nasty." Actually, if Scarlett and Beaks had been wandering around here for who knew how long looking for the way down, they might know what had happened to make such a mess, or where other students were. Time to mine this potential well of info. Not that one mined wells, but... you get the point.

"Did you guys wake up here, then? Have you seen anybody else? You know who trashed that room back there?"
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
