If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

"Mama... just killed a man..."

Rene hummed along to the song as she checked out the refreshment table. The spread actually wasn't too bad, to her surprise. She thought that there would just be some little cocktail weenies, cookies, and the stereotypical punch bowl. All of those were there, of course, but there were also some tiny finger sandwiches, cheese cubes, and other assorted goodies, primarily desserts. Nothing five-star, but far better than what she had expected. Apparently the staff were really going all-out to try to make them feel like royalty tonight.

Well, except for the ugly-as-all-hell star-print tablecloth, but she supposed that she could let that slide.

Once she felt like she had a good take on her tiny plastic plate, Rene scanned the area. People were still trickling in through the doors, and little groups were already forming outside of the dance floor. The dance floor itself was more of an amorphous mass, with people moving in and out, dancing and singing all the while. Basically, they were acting like rowdy teenagers at a dance, which, seeing as that was what they were, was rather unsurprising.

Rene didn't really feel like dancing. Hell, she didn't really feel like sticking around for that long anyway. She was only there to see what was going on before heading to Junko's party. Even though she didn't really care much about the dance, she at least wanted to see what it was like.

Plus, at least they were playing Queen. Looks like someone on the planning committee had taste.

Rene looked out into the crowd and decided to strike up a conversation with the two guys nearest to her, so she'd at least have something to do for the next couple minutes.

"Hey. Pretty exiting event, huh?"

Her words were laced with sarcasm, naturally.

"Yeah, I hear that." Rene responded to Cristóbal, cradling a cube of colby jack in her fingertips. "It's like they went to Party City and grabbed the first things they saw on clearance. Haven't seen decorations like this since I was in third grade." She popped th cheese into her mouth, taking a moment to savor it before swallowing.

Yeah, they definitely spent a good slice of the budget on the food.

"So yeah, what are you guys up to?" She inquired. "Hanging around the refreshment table for easy access?" She reached over to the table and grabbed an olive from a platter to provide an example. "Wouldn't blame you. This stuff's not half bad."

"Who, me?" Rene asked as she rolled the olive between her fingers. "I'm just here to see what the dance looks like. I'm not really planning on sticking around." She dropped the olive onto her plate in order to have her hand free for gesturing. "Yeah, Junko's throwing a party tonight, so that's where I'm headed. I just thought that I might as well see what the school had set up before I went over there. Y'know, just to make sure they were spending my parents' tax dollars responsibly."

Rene picked up one of her finger sandwiches to examine it. Looked like turkey. Smelled like turkey. Probably was turkey. Still, there was only one way to find out for sure.

"So what's your story?" Rene asked Cristo back before engaging in the taste test. "Anything in particular bring you here tonight?"

Rene nodded. "Yeah, friends. Maybe I should've thought of that, huh?" She said, placing her now-empty tray of snacks on the nearby table. "Maybe that would've made things more interesting. Y'know, not that this isn't interesting or anything."

Rene looked out at the dance floor. There were people dancing, talking, and generally having a great time, or at the very least putting on a pretty good show about pretending to have a great time. Maybe she could have tried to make a night out of the dance. Maybe gotten some friends together and just hung out in the gym all night, snacking and shooting the breeze.

... Nah, she still wasn't feeling it.

Having gotten her fill of the surroundings, Rene felt that it might be time to move on to other things. If the time on her phone was right, then she still had a decent chance to make Junko's party before everyone left. She figured that she might as well give her current conversation partner a heads up before she just walked out. She elbowed Cristo lightly in the arm to get his attention.

"Hey, I'm about to head out. You wanna bet I can sneak a finger sandwich out the door?"
