Jeremy always knew his parents were good for something.

((Jeremy Frasier: Pregame Start))

Jeremy was in the cafeteria, trying to find a table. He had gotten out of his math class as quickly as possible, mostly so that he could get a spot on a cafeteria table before the place filled up. Well, that, and because he wanted to get out of that fucking math class as quickly as he could. He could have slowed down though, admittedly. He was the first person of his friends here, and rather than literally having nowhere to sit, he metaphorically had nowhere to sit.

Oh well, it wasn't his fault that he didn't fuck around. Professionalism. Walk as quickly to and from where you need to go, and don't waste time by talking to other people. It always worked for him, and the positives always outweighed the negatives.

So yeah, goddammit Joshua, goddammit Harold, goddammit Irene. Why couldn't they be as fast as him? They were so rude, bothering to talk to others instead of moving quickly. God fucking damm.

Oh well. It didn't matter to him. It just meant that he'd have to sit with someone who he didn't talk with normally. He looked around, and Jesus Christ those school lunches looked awful. Again, it seemed his parents were good for something after all. Wait, focus Jeremy. Look for a table.

Soon enough, he found one.

He walked to it, and there were... two people there? One he knew, Barbara Gunnerson. Smart person, had a band, and was a sort of academic rival for Jeremy. She had weird tastes in music, though. What the fuck is drone?

The other person he didn't quite know as well. He knew his name though! Barry Banks, soccer dude, spent all his spare time playing sports. Eh, he could be a good guy.

“Hey, Ba-”

Wait a moment, she prefers to be called by her nickname, right? That's what most other people thought her name was.

“BB, sorry. It okay if I sit here?”

“Thanks.” Jeremy sat down in a chair on the table, allowing his backpack to slide off his arm as he placed it below the table. He almost called her by her real name, which could have been a problem. He knew that she hated it, he wasn’t sure why though. He had called her Barbara once out of normal habit at one point and then she treated him like he was the fucking antichrist for the rest of the period. It was a good thing that he actually remembered to call her by her real name this time, or else he probably would have had to find another table. Eh, it didn’t matter anyway. He probably could have found another random table with seniors on it that he didn’t find detestable, it wouldn’t have been too great of a loss.

He opened his bag, so that he could get his lunchbox out. It was a TARDIS lunchbox, which his parents gave him for Christmas because they assumed that he still gave a shit about Doctor Who. Well, that wasn’t entirely correct. He liked the last season, despite half the internet not sharing his opinion. But still, his parents were trying to appeal to one of the things they thought he was interested in because they wanted to pretend that they cared about him. They weren’t doing a good job though, with them shouting at him to constantly revise when he wasn’t doing anything else and not even fucking bothering to pronounce the things he liked right. Maybe that was how BB felt about her real name; maybe he should actually call her by her nickname from now on.

Speaking of BB, she asked him why he was here. Well, she asked Barry as well, but he was likely the odd one out here so the question was probably directed towards him. It was probably a good idea if he responded.

“Place I normally go is closed. Exams or renovations or something like that. I needed somewhere to sit and have my lunch and this was the closest place to my last class. Don’t expect me to stay here for too long, though.” He probably wasn’t going to stay here for too long once he finished his lunch. He didn’t find the cafeteria to be a very pleasant place, and when certain people arrived it apparently could turn into a madhouse, which probably wouldn’t entertain him.

Barry then asked if the pizza was any good. Jeremy shrugged, and then showed everyone his lunchbox.

“I dunno. Don’t need to know though, since I have this.” He looked at both of their trays, what they had wasn’t really appetising. Thank god that his mom actually made lunch for him every morning.

Huh, apparently the pizza wasn’t that bad. That was a surprise for him. Wasn’t cafeteria food generally inedible, the prehistoric gunk that kids dreaded every day? That was what he had been told by the media, anyway. Still, he was still probably pretty fortunate that he had the homemade stuff, considering what the cafeteria stuff looked like. He checked out BB’s tray, and he still couldn’t really call it appetising. He swung his lunchbox around his finger and placed it onto the table.

It was now time for lunch.

He opened his lunchbox, putting two fingers on the zipper and allowing it to drag as he moved the lid open. Looking at it, there were two sandwiches, a couple of cherry tomatoes, jelly snakes, and two bottles of water. Not bad, although he was probably going to skip the tomatoes, as yesterday’s turned out to be wrinkled and inedible. He unwrapped the tinfoil around the sandwiches, and was about to eat the crusts of the chicken sandwich when BB asked him what was up with the world.

Well, she probably meant the world as in him, but he decided to humour himself a bit.

“Depends on what you mean by “the world”. If you’re talking about the planet, well…” He decided to take a little breath before he continued; this was going to be a long one.

“Global warming is happening, ISIS is killing anyone who doesn’t want to become a Muslim, the WBC excommunicated it’s founder after he showed kindness to the gay people across the street, the government is searching for AT and has still provided any fruit, Ebola is raging across Kenya and some other third world countries, and I don’t think PETA’s done anything to stir shit up lately, so kudos to them.

He bit some of the crust off his sandwich, it wasn’t his favourite part of it, but it allowed him to eat the dough and the chicken without any problems. He always seemed to separate his food before he ate it, it was a pattern that he had picked up when he was four years old.

“If “the world” refers to me, then I can very easily say nothing much.” He shrugged. “I have homework, piano practice, social things, that kind of stuff.”

He took out the rest of the crust with one bite. Mmm, delicious.

Jeremy couldn’t help but stifle a little grin. She was smiling at what he said. He started chewing into the dough and chicken, to hide it. If this was going to turn into a battle of wits, he had to keep a straight face, or else that would mean that he’d lose. Jesus, if he lost to his own joke that would be embarrassing. Hmm, maybe he should actually work on keeping a poker face, it’d mean that he wouldn’t have to keep his face behind something every time someone replied to him. Yeah, that’d help.

He noted BB’s response to him, joking around about the shit going on in the world. Admittedly, while it was something he joked about with friends, he did know that the world was fucked in its current state. The things he mentioned earlier? They were problems (well, maybe the peta thing wasn’t, but still), and he wanted to fix them. The problem was, he couldn’t really do anything about it. He felt like he had no voice, being just a young man in a small town. Not somebody with a lot of power.

That was another reason he felt that he had to get the fuck out of here as soon as possible. Go to Vegas or Phoenix or Washington or somewhere like that, become a writer. That’d carry some voice, probably.

He noticed BB look up at him with a smile on her face, was she trying for eye contact?

He grinned, allowing his teeth to show for a bit.

It was on.

She went on about going to an orgy. She wasn’t being serious, of course, but somehow she got Barry to take her seriously? He briefly questioned whether Barry would take him seriously as well. It'd make the whole thing funnier to him, but he decided to make what he said next sound as sarcastic as possible so that nobody would actually take him seriously.

“Sorry, but I’ll have to decline your offer. I’m not really a fan of orgies. I generally prefer the one on one stuff, you know, the stuff that only appears in porn masterpieces such as Fifty Shades of Grey. Being able to do that stuff with a real life girl? That really makes my cock steam.” He then winked, in a jokingly exaggerated motion, for extra measure.

((Gonna skip Aura on the posting order, seeing that he hasn’t posted in nearly a month))

Nine words made Jeremy start to cringe a little. One of the few people Jeremy did not want to have heard that joke just came in.

Jerry was an okay person, most of the time. He was loud, but that could be funny, sometimes. Problem was he wasn’t really the smartest of people. That would be fine normally, he didn’t discriminate based off how smart someone was; but oftentimes he wouldn’t get jokes that Jeremy made, which meant that he had to explain it and ruin the joke, which was never fun. It also kinda made him worry a bit. Was Jerry just not getting the joke, or was he the one who wasn’t funny? It wasn’t something he often thought about, due to him not wanting to become fucking paranoid, but it came sometimes.

Nevertheless, Jerry came in and now the whole thing was super awkward. Even worse, BB didn’t quite appreciate the joke, saying that it was gross. A pang of sadness hit him, and he stopped eating his jam sandwich for a bit. His joke didn’t seem to be funny. That wasn’t good. Maybe he probably shouldn't have made the cock steaming joke after all. He looked away. BB then passed the baton on to him.

Wait, never mind. He seemed to be okay here.

He looked at Barry and Jerry; they didn’t quite seem to know that they were both just joking. They probably wouldn’t appreciate it if he continued.

Eh, live in the moment, deal with the consequences later. No regrets.

“Oh, I’m really freaky, if you know what I mean.”

He then did the wink again, and looked at Jerry. He may as well answer the question about his virginity.

“At least, that’s what they all said after I worked them up.”

Well, nobody said that he had to tell the truth, at least. He winked again, for good measure.

Maybe he shouldn’t overuse that. Oh well.

"But in all seriousness, we're joking. I said something about how the world was going and it turned into a sarcasm fight, I guess."

And Jerry completely ignored him, turning his complete attention to BB and her hypothetical orgy (taking another look at it, wow Jerry was really interested in that orgy, wasn't he). He then asked about her band. Oh right, she was in a band with some other people from school, wasn't she? He'd never heard any of their stuff, but they probably weren't bad at all. He figured that he'd ask her if they had any mp3s of their stuff on Facebook is she was on that tonight; and hey, best case scenario it'd turn into snarkfight v2 in which he would certainly win.

Another person decided to join the table. Matt Moradi. Jeremy didn't know much about him, despite both of them being gamers. Apparently from his introduction, he was a pretty cool guy, which Jeremy decided to believe. "Hey."

Speaking of snarkfighting earlier, BB then decided to taunt him, saying that he had no chance of winning it

Oh, it was on.

He leaned a bit closer, tried to make his natural tallness come out a little bit, tried to make his eyes meet her smiling face. "Oh, so that's how you think it is? I'll have you know that this is just the least I can do. If you want, I can show you what I'm really made of."

But wait, he couldn't. He kinda had run out of material. He probably ran out of material a long time ago considering Jerry's complete nonreaction to him. He sucked at playing introductions, he always needed someone to speak first so that he could play off of them. It was his one flaw as a comedian, in his mind.

But he needed a way out of here, before he made a fool of himself. He reached back, to get some food; there wasn't anything there.

Showtime.

"But alas, I have ran out of food, and I said earlier that I'd leave when I finished eating or something like that." He stood up. "We continue this battle later, tonight, maybe." He started putting his lunchbox back into his bag. "But in all seriousness I gotta go now. Sorry for making the conversation about cocks, Barry, Jerry."

As he walked away, he waved to the four people at the table. "See ya."

He hoped that he was able to put on a show.
