School dances were great in theory.

Junko approved of any kind of excuse to just party. Even one hosted by the school, with all that implies, was still a good idea. She’d been to a few school dances when she was younger, but high school dances? Well, that’s where “in theory” came in. It kind of felt like the big school dances, the ones you’re apparently supposed to look forward to, had certain expectations. If movies, TV shows, and everything else had taught her correctly, the proper way to do things was to wait passively for a boy to ask you out. Then, you spend hundreds of dollars on hair, makeup, and a dress you’ll probably never wear again. He’d be the one calling the shots the entire evening. And none of that was the sort of thing Junko was interested in. Sure, some girls might adore the Prince Charming fantasy that seemed to come with school dances. But Junko? First off, she was pansexual, so why did it have to be a guy? Second, why did she have to wait for him to ask her? Couldn’t she do it personally, get it over with? Third, she didn’t even like dresses all that much, so she wasn’t going to pay a ton for them.

The “teal deer” version was, there was something very iffy about school dances sometimes. It seemed like the expectation was that you’d be attending as a hetero person who can afford to spend money, rather than… anyone else.

You’d think Sadie Hawkins, a dance that was, in theory, less formal and somewhat less heteronormative, would be better. To be honest? No! First off, what was this? The 1950s? Why is the concept of “girl asks guy out” being treated as this weird novelty gimmick? If anything, the theme should be “ask that cute person out already”.

And it got worse when Junko found out what, or rather, who, Sadie Hawkins was. Now, Junko didn’t consider herself to be a particularly PC person. The first time someone linked her the “Shrek is love” thing? She was horrified at first, but then laughed and sent it along to every single person she could think of. And, admittedly, she still watched Jackass every once in a while. That said… basically, the joke behind Sadie Hawkins is that a woman is so ugly no one will marry her. So her dad makes a special event where the first guy to be caught by her in some kind of race thing has to marry her. Really. That’s the entire joke.

Yup, it was the sort of thing that was only really funny in, like, 1934. And she was pretty sure that minstrel shows were still a thing then.

Naturally, Junko expressed how she wasn’t hugely interested in the dance to some people when it came up. And it turned out some of those people felt the same way, whether for the reasons she had or something else. However, Junko wasn’t one to pass up an excuse for a good party.

Of course, she realized, there wasn’t a reason why she needed to party at the school.

So that’s how Junko got where she was right now, setting up s’more stuff on a bench table at a campsite. Yes, no need for the school, it turned out. She could have a fun evening, and so could other people. Planning it out had been a bit of a pain in the ass at first, but, eh, she managed, you know? Always did.

Anyways. S’mores. Taken care of. Hershey’s, graham crackers, marshmallows. Hell, not just Hershey’s, either. Junko liked her s’mores with Reese’s peanut butter cups. It weirded people out when she mentioned it, at least until they tried it for themselves. Then they changed their tune. So yeah, got that too.

Hotdogs? Yup, got that. And everything to go with them in the cooler. Jiffypop? Of course. Hot chocolate stuff? Yup. Booze, that was tricky. For a while, Junko wasn’t sure whether or not there was even going to be booze. She didn’t even drink the stuff, for one. Spending the rest of the evening red-faced and nauseous wasn’t her style. But other people liked underage drinking. Luckily, someone decided to repay a favor when she brought up the subject of alcohol, how to get it, and whether or not it’d work at the party. So booze it was. Done. Even if she forgot something, she did mention to people that she wouldn't mind if they brought other things they felt the party needed, so there was a chance of that.

The site she picked wasn’t hugely populated. When she got here, she didn’t see any other people in other spots around. Still, she had to make sure it wasn’t too noisy or rowdy, just in case. She didn’t want the fun to end because someone called the cops because of noise or because someone got themselves seriously injured while drunk. Or something. Should be fine, though.

The sky had turned to dusk, though. And that meant one more thing.

The campfire itself, the star of the show? About to be taken care of.

Junko knelt down to the fire pit. It had a grill piece, which was a good sign. Now to set some things on fire. She fiddled with it for a few minutes, before, eventually, the tinder lit on fire. Next came kindling. Then came the fuel branches. Soon enough, the small flame became a hungry campfire, just big enough for their purposes.

Whoo! And now everything was pretty much taken care of.

Junko sat down on a log just in front of the campfire. For a few seconds, she fished around in her hoodie pocket for her phone. Once her fingers found the plastic, she pulled it out, glancing at the time. It was still about 10 minutes before the scheduled time, but she wouldn’t be surprised if someone showed up early.

She also saw she got a text.

hey J. gl @ ur party. call if u need anything-S

Junko smiled. Sarah and Koharu knew about the party. Of course, she didn’t tell them about the booze, for obvious reasons. Nor did they know about a certain substance she brought with her in a small plastic bag, hidden in her pocket just in case. She wasn't sure about toking, but eh, never know.

This party took her a good part of a month to plan and sort out. She still spent money, but eh, it probably was worth it. It better turn out good.

Oh, people were here. Right, time to get into host mode.

Junko placed her phone back in her hoodie and stood up, seeing… someone who she’d never seen before. Wait, no, she had. Cochise wasn’t that big. Something Cox. Heh, Cox. Well, part of her was still five, that hadn’t changed. Anyways, he was a Senior and on the basketball team, if she remembered correctly. Wayne Cox! That was his name. They didn’t talk to each other often, but he was a bit of a slacker, if she heard correctly.

“Let’s see… I invited plenty of people, so they’ll probs be here soon,” Junko said, thinking.

To be honest, she didn’t expect like, half the school to show up. After all, there was a school dance. However, she still expected a pretty good turnout. She was pretty sure Michael and Jonathan were going to show up, for one. Haley, too.

Oh, and Darius, who had shown up with a Monster in his hand.

“Hi guys, by the way.”

A small wave with her right hand.

Officer Brand? What did he me- oh, booze? Something told her that booze was a Monster. Maybe. He didn’t look to be carrying anything else. Well, someone couldn’t wait to start drinking, couldn’t they?

“I have a few ‘friends’ for him nearby” she said, a small smile forming. “And there’s things on the picnic table for s’mores and stuff. Oh, and hot dogs in the cooler.”

Okay, so two so far. Probably more in a bit. Sweet.

“No prob.”

Junko saw that Wayne Cox had started to make his way to the cooler to look at the hotdogs.

And then Raina showed up. Or, as Darius just called her, “Miku”. Well, she did have dyed blue hair and, from what she remembered of Anime Club meetings that didn’t have Naruto as the main theme for the day, liked Vocaloid. Still, though, she wasn’t sure if she liked being called Miku. Anyways, drinks, right.

“Hey Raina”, she replied. “Well, it was a little tricky for me to get some booze at first, but eh, I managed, you know? Let’s just say someone was willing to help me out. Sooo… there’s some canned beers, if you’re into that. A bottle of whiskey, too. Apparently it’s the cheaper kind, though. Booze is pricey it turns out. And if you don’t want booze, I have hot chocolate stuff, if you want some.”

Hell, Raina could somehow combine hot chocolate and booze, if she so wanted. Was that any good? Junko had no idea. Even if she didn’t want either, though, there was still an off chance that someone might decide to bring something. Junko could have easily forgotten something, or she did remember, but was unable to for a variety of reasons. So, don’t count on it, but there’s a shot of it happening.

Oh, a drinking game?

“There’s some cups we could use for like, shotgun or something. Or maybe Never Have I Ever or Would You Rather?” Junko said, making sure to pick up the Monster can, the smell of which confirmed her suspicions.

Again, Junko didn’t usually drink that often, but she did play a few drinking games minus the actual drinking. But Never Have I Ever was fun. The trick was to make it the most humiliating things imaginable. Like “Never have I ever shat my pants since I was a little kid” or “Never have I ever peed in a public pool”. It was more fun that way, in her opinion. Same goes with Would You Rather. The more horrifying things become, the better.

“I’m not sure it’s a good idea to start drinking on an empty stomach, though. What do you guys think?”

Oh, nevermind. Raina had grabbed the Monster can before Junko was able to. Well, that was one thing taken care of. Anyways, Darius had seemed eager for shotgun. Raina, however, had to deal with parents when she got home. Junko understood completely. Hell, if Koharu and Sarah found out about the booze she’d… well, she wasn’t sure what she’d do. It depends on how they’d react. Not well, probs. But eh. For some reason, Darius had decided to make a PA comment about Raina picking up trash. Did they have beef? She’d better keep an eye on that, so that it doesn’t devolve into catfights. Wait, is “catfight” a good word when one of them is male?

“There’s some skewers on the table!” Junko called out to Wayne Cox, then back to the duo. “Anyways… I could set shit up for that once we have more people?”

She wasn’t sure how to respond to Darius’ asides, but someone else had other plans. Well, multiple someone elses. Those plans emerged in the form of a hug and a barrage of questions, followed by a New Jersey accented shout in greeting a few feet away.

“Oof. Hey Jonathan,” Junko replied.

Junko didn’t like to be hugged all that much. Being so short and tiny meant that hugs were only a reminder of that sometimes. Luckily, Jonathan wasn’t that much bigger than her.

Once Jonathan let go, she added in “And hey Michael!”

Oh, a pun? That got her attention.

“Eh, I’m not going to Wayne about that joke, Darius”, she said.

Not the best she could come up with on the fly, but it’ll do.

((post order's loose in here. Plus, RC is away. Feel free to skip over each other if you need to))

“Ooh, tough crowd.”

Wayne had called them children, Jonathan gave out an awkward token laugh, and Michael had literally told them to stop. To be fair, even by Junko’s standards her pun was horrible. She had to stretch sounds to make it work. Eh, she could come up with something better later. Wayne and cheese. Wait no, that stretched sounds a bit too. Bruce Wayne? Too easy. It and other puns she could make would come to her later in the evening. Later. She could focus on puns later.

Junko grinned at Michael. “Thanks. And it’s a good thing there isn’t a ton of electronics just floating around the campsite. If you people took my Pokemon games, well, there’d be no hope for you all.”

She’d heard on the grapevine what happened with the DS. It was… actually pretty funny, though she’d probably murder whoever took it if it happened to her.

Speaking of which, Fiyori showed up. Was it her who took it? Her or someone else. Apparently Caedyn was also a candidate for taking it, but… Junko didn’t want to give her credit for a damn thing. She’d more than enough Caedyn Miller for a lifetime.

Wayne seemed to have enlisted himself as hot dog server, and by the look of things, probably on accident. Raina had offered to help, though.

Junko slid over to the table. She might as well get one too. Bringing hot dogs was, after all, still a good idea.

Junko impaled her own hot dog on a skewer. Now, if there was anything at the party that could get stolen that’d piss her off, it’d be the skewers, now that she thought of it. Bonfire skewers weren’t that expensive, she didn’t think. But these were nice skewers that Sarah and Koharu let her pull out of storage. She’d like to be able to use them again sometime in the future. Though, what would someone do with skewers? And how would they smuggle it out?

Oh, and the DS thief decided to say hi.

“Hey Fiyori,” Junko gave her greeting. “Sup?”

There was Michael and Jonathan, having a conversation. It was good that they were finally talking to each other. She’d heard about what happened between them, and… Jonathan was pretty upset. Couldn’t blame him, really. But it was good that they were having a conversation. Hopefully things would turn out between them, y’know? Same went with Bruce Wayne and Raina. Erm, on the conversation part, not the being upset part. And… then there was Darius. Who was currently mangling the hell out of a Vocaloid song.

Junko had no idea what was Darius’ strange obsession with Raina and Miku Hatsune this evening was about. But yeah, he was trying to lead her into some kind of campfire sing-a-long version of Ievan Polka. It wasn’t great.

“Darius… how much did you drink before you got here?” she called out from her spot.

"Or! You can give me it. I don't mind eating charred food. I'll eat anything", Junko said, punctuating the last sentence with a small cackle as she sat down.

Actually somewhat true. Some food tasted better charred. Like marshmallows. Set them on fire, then blow them out when they're nice and black. It'll have a crispy outside, but a soft and gooey inside. Delicious. Hot dogs, she was sure they were like that too.

Darius offered his condolences and offered to sing an eulogy for the fallen wiener in the form of oh god no Darius Jesus Christ Darius why.

White people shouldn't sing rock ballads in Japanese, especially if they're not super familiar with the language.

Drunk people shouldn't sing rock ballads at all.

So, the last thing any drunk white person should be doing is attempting to sing a rock ballad in Japanese.

Junko cringed. And as if the Japanese language couldn't be any more fucked up by Caucasians. Sure, some of the lyrics were in English, but that helped only slightly.

Somewhere she heard Michael roar with laughter. Some part of her wanted to troll Darius, by acting like he accidentally insulted everyone here instead of singing X Japan songs.

But oh man. It took a turn for the creepy when he decided to hug Raina while singing the damn thing. Someone who was quickly getting more and more annoyed with his bullcrap would definitely not appreciate being hugged by him while he eviscerated Japanese rock songs. The result was obvious. And that result was Raina squeezing out of his grasp and throwing a beer can at him-

Oh Christ. The catfight scenario was actually happening, wasn't it?

Junko jumped to her feet, skewer still in hand and a scowl on her face. Luckily, Jonathan and Michael decided to forge a two-pronged attack on the shitstorm that was likely about to happen. As the hostess, Junko had better add her thoughts.

"Darius... if you're that bored already, I could just, like, give you something to do? Like, I dunno, some kind of job? Or maybe something else?"

Somehow, it had slipped her mind that she had Jiffypop and she hadn't made it yet until just now. Well, that's one duty she could assign Darius to. Popping the Jiffies was a little tricky on a campfire grill, but it was possible. Though, Darius was obviously pretty drunk, so should he doing things like that? Aside from injuries, it could get burned. Eh, she'd eat it. But it's meant for everyone else too. He suggested a drinking game, so maybe she could convince him to set something up. Maybe it wouldn't be a good idea for him not to actually participate, though, since he was, again, drunk already.

Gah, this whole "arrived drunk" thing made it a little more tricky. But hopefully the Jonathan-Michael power duo would calm things down, and she'd find something to keep Darius distracted enough to stop bugging the shit out of Raina. Heck, she didn't have to give him an actual job, but she could like, talk to him about shit that didn't involve mangling the Japanese language. Junko didn't mind talking to drunk people, really, even if in Raina's position she'd.. well, act similarly.

Wow. Darius really turned into a weeb when he was drunk, didn't he? To be fair, it was kind of funny, seeing him mangle Vocaloid songs while drunk. In a way. Junko still had to cringe internally at the poor... everything. The way he utterly destroyed the Japanese language. The way he pushed away Michael's attempt at calming him down, like it was some terrible dish he'd served. The way that he kept doing the exact same thing that got a beer can thrown at him. Was it possible to feel secondhand embarrassment for someone? Probably. Junko looked around her to see if someone had ended up recording this on their phones or something. How would she feel about that? Well, mixed feelings, to be honest. On one hand, they'd go viral. On the other, she didn't want Officer Brand to come knocking at her door because of a wild teen party on Yout-

... She just realized Darius had tried to troll her earlier. How... could she miss that?

But Raina and Wayne were going to step away for a bit. Darius, too, though it looked like he was doing something different. At first Junko thought he was going to bug them more, but then Michael spoke up. Oh, pissing, right. That unholy mixture of booze and caffeine needed to come out someday.

"Eh. I'm glad that the whole... 'Mr. Groves would be mad at you philistines' thing didn't move on to No More Heroes songs, if anything", Junko said. "Though, 'I'm a Little Teapot'? At this rate..."

Junko smiled, but she looked towards the direction the singing continued. If it turned out they were giving him ideas, well, this night would just keep on getting better. She guessed it was pretty good entertainment for the evening, at least for Michael.

Junko had sat back down, but a few seconds later she felt a hand on her shoulder. At first, she thought it was Darius, back to terrorize once more. Junko turned her head, and-

Nope, it was a completely and utterly pissed off Maria Cuccinotta, and… Junko didn’t invite her? Really? She invited tons of people who would be interested in going to a bonfire instead of the space dance ugly woman race thing. Let’s see… she knew Haley expressed interest. Cris, too, actually. Maybe if he’d show up, Junko could put him on “Darius Wrangling Duty.” Didn’t he have an on-off thing with Raina nowadays? She doubted that even if they were in the “off” stage, he’d appreciate him hugging her while singing. No, scratch that, singing in a language that Junko was sure Darius couldn’t actually speak. Anyways, how did Maria not get invited?

“What are you talking about? I remember sending people messages about it”, Junko said, frowning.

Maybe it got eaten somehow? Or maybe she’d genuinely forgotten. Wouldn’t be the first time, really. For either. Junko’s brain sometimes couldn’t take too many things at once, and sometimes robots decide to rebel by losing shit. She guessed Maria found out through word of mouth instead, and that’s how she managed to show up. That was good. It’d suck if someone missed out because of the host’s faulty memory or faulty technology.

Before Junko could deal with Maria any further, Johnny showed up. Junko was cool with him, though he had a reputation. It was known by pretty much everyone that Johnny had a talent for things suddenly disappearing whenever he went to parties. She’d have to keep an eye on him. Maybe Fiyori, too. There wasn’t too much they could steal that would be that bad, except maybe the skewers? Well, she had her phone and a small bag of weed on her, but they’d have to reach into her pocket or something. Maybe there was something huge she was missing, but you know. Maybe she could do a quick pat-down before they left? No idea.

Junko nodded towards Johnny. A second later, she heard someone introduce Maria and Johnny to “his” party. She didn’t even have to turn her head to know that Darius had come back. Wow. How drunk do you have to be to think that you were hosting someone else’s party? Did they have to kill each other for the title of “host” like Game of Thrones? Did they do that in that show? She’d never watched it. All she knew was that there was a lot of murder and rape and plotting and incest, based off how people describe it to her. You know, all the fun things royalty does to each other. Oh, and there was something called a “Red Wedding” that her Facebook feed was freaking out about. Apparently a bunch of people got stabbed? Anyways!

As Johnny gave Darius a cig, Junko put a grin back on.

“As you can see… we’ve got some pretty good entertainment this evening. You just missed the part where he sung a bunch of things and tried to hug Raina.”

“Correction: Darius succeeded at hugging Raina. He also succeeded at getting a beer thrown in his face.”

Junko had lifted her skewer away from the fire. Her hot dog was starting to get a little crispy, though it didn’t get burnt like Raina’s did. Fortunately, or unfortunately? Well, she’d still eat it anyways. Again, some burnt food tasted better.

Though… damn it. She knew she forgot something. Junko didn’t play the guitar. She just didn’t have attention span to learn how to play. Sarah did, though. It wasn’t like she could just drag her over here, though. Sarah had a life of her own, and she didn’t want her or Koharu to find out there were people getting drunk and creeping on girls. Sure, she didn’t mind all sorts of things, but she wanted them to think of it as a… relatively tame party. Junko got up to all sorts of shit, yeah, but there was still something kind of sad about them finding out about it. Maybe it’s because parents knowing about what you do is different from classmates. Guitar would have been nice, though. Maybe someone could’ve provided a background score to Darius’ impromptu musical numbers. Maybe.

Junko pictured it for a second, and let out a chuckle at the mental image.

Also, who reads at a party? You’d think that Johnny would be the last person, too. Was it really that boring, even with drunk Darius aro-

Oh.

Oh

Had to admit it: that was actually a pretty smart way to hide weed. It was like something out of a spy novel, swear to god. Spy novels featuring stoners, actually. She would read it, because that would be the best thing ever. Was there something like that? If not, she might write it. She didn’t have much writing ability, but it did seem like something people would pick up. Even if it was just for the novelty.

Junko found herself staring at he prepared a spliff. She still wasn’t sure about getting high, since, you know, she was the host, no matter what Darius said. It might be good to stay sober. But, Junko wasn’t too incapable when high, at least from personal experience. She did bring her own, too, just in case.

“Maybe not right now,” she said in response to Johnny’s offer. “Might be a good idea to stay sober for the time being. Just in case like… I dunno, someone jumps into the fire or something?”

She smiled, though.

“Maybe later.”

Come to think of it, an after-party toke would be nice. Clean up everything, take care of anything that might have come up, and then just end the evening with some weed. That would the ideal way to finish this, actually. Hopefully nothing would come up to change that.

A loud clicking noise had heralded someone else’s presence. And that someone was Beaks, standing some feet away. Junko had remembered that he said he wanted to drop by, but he had to go to the dance first. He had a date, after all. Though, she didn’t see anyone with him, so maybe they decided not to go with him? Perhaps. Though, was she flirting with someone? Maria was angry, and… maybe sharing weed could be flirty. Depends on the context. Like, did your lips both touch it? Okay, yeah, that would be flirty.

“Hey,” she said, lifting a free hand in greeting. “You made it. Everything all right? You know, at the dance.”

Junko didn’t really care about the dance. If she did, this party wouldn’t exist. But she couldn’t help but ask. It probably wouldn’t be too different from any other school dances she’d been to. Just with some weird, outdated gimmick with an iffy backstory.

“Heyheyheyheyhey,” Junko said as she moved to dodge the beer. “Don’t do that. I didn’t even hug you first.”

Yup, Darius had decided to recreate Raina’s response to his “affection” on her, for reasons she couldn’t quite get. Only a few specks got on her, which was good. It honestly wouldn’t be the first time this hoodie got covered with beer. Booze, weed, vomit, ketchup, everything. Yet somehow, it made it through alright with a discreet run through a machine. In any case, though, getting covered in beer would suck. She couldn’t even drink it without getting red-faced, and the smell of it lingering on her clothes for the rest of the evening? That would be extra weird.

Junko frowned at the beer puddle that had been made, and looked back up. Speaking of beer, how many had Maria had already? She was like, on her third or fourth. Was she really that pissed about missing the invite that she had to get drunk already? It didn’t help that Junko honestly couldn’t tell if that hot dog cooking comment was PA, sincere, or what. So she just smiled in response. Smile and nod. At least she wasn’t singing and randomly hugging people?

The dance had been “alright,” according to Aiden. It was only proof of what they had been missing. Or what they weren’t missing. High art of raising legs? Was he doing the can can or something? That would at least make the dance more interesting. Junko again chuckled at the thought that popped into her head.

She let out another chuckle at the pun.

“Thanks, Aiden. Skeeters really bug me, you know?”

Aha, got him.

Suck, bug. What other puns could be made based of skeeters? Blood brothers. Blood sisters. The ones that bit were female, right? Yeah, pretty sure that was the case. Roller skeeters. Oh, wait, she thought of a better one, but she was going to wait until the right moment. Sure, puns were silly, but she loved them.

“Booze is free, yeah,” Junko said, after receiving an elbow nudge.

She noticed that he gave Fiyori a strange look a few seconds ago. What was that about? She wasn’t sure. But she put it aside. Maybe it was nothing. Maybe? Maybe?

A second later, she felt another flick at the back of her head. She turned around again, to see that Aiden had flicked another one away. She smiled a bit in response.

But wait. Who gets drunk at party then immediately goes home to do homework? Darius did, apparently. Did he want a poor grade from, dunno, Brown? Yeah, I totally got drunk before I did this equation, can I get a do-over? That excuse would fly well. Yeah, Darius was, for some reason, buzzing off with a lame excuse. Again, working on assignments while under the influence was a thing? It sounded stupid. Did Darius really hate insect puns that much? Maybe she should send it along to Raina in case he acts up again.

“Bye Darius!” she called out.

For a moment, Junko considered asking if he needed a call home or something. After all, if horror movies told her correctly, teenagers plus booze plus woods equals serial killer. Darius, however, went off before she could even open her mouth about that. Hopefully there were no serial killers. Murder at this party would be the worst thing ever.

She looked at the remaining guests, then shrugged.

“Well, then.”

So after Darius left, Aiden and Johnny went off into a side conversation. Junko couldn’t help but overhear a few snippets of it. Girls? They were talking about girls? Yeah, from what lines she could hear from here, that’s what it was. Someone was having girl troubles? Apparently it was something sexual, based off that hand gesture. With who? Aiden’s date to the dance? Someone else? Damn it, she knew it was wrong to listen in on others’ conversations, but those small tidbits had managed to find their way to her. Oh, she also got a bottle cap tossed at her. Nice. Okay, it was an accident, and at least it wasn’t beer again.

Other than that, it was pretty quiet. Darius apparently had taken most of the noise with him. So Junko tried not to listen any more to whatever Johnny and Aiden were talking about. Polite, you know? She didn't usually care that much about politeness, but gotta show some decency. If Aiden or Johnny wanted her to know, she’d know. So she instead focused on devouring a hot dog and the sound of the fire cracking.

Oh, and someone sneaking up behind her and saying “Boo”.

Junko jumped, a piece of sausage still in her mouth. People had a tendency of showing up behind her this evening. Why, she didn’t know. Maybe it was because her front was towards the fire, and behind was the best way to talk to her? No idea. But she turned around again after swallowing. Oh sweet, Cris had shown up, too. Like Aiden, he had gone to the dance first before heading here, yeah. She’d texted him earlier, and it was clear that he hadn’t dressed out before arriving either.

“Oh, hey!” she said, a smile on her face. “Aiden said the dance wasn’t any good. Guessing he’s right? Also, you just missed drunk Darius.”

Oh, so that’s two, then. Figures. Good to see they still weren’t missing anything. Seriously. Junko kept her smile in turn. And oh yeah, he wanted to know about Darius. AKA, the man who tried to… flirt? Flirt, yeah. He’d tried to flirt with his on-off girlfriend.

“Um… he showed up drunk and I guess high off caffeine too. He started singing and tried to hug Raina, but… she didn’t like that. So she and Wayne decided to step away for a while.”

Where were they, anyways? Did Darius piss them off so badly they couldn’t come back? Should she or someone else send a text or something saying that Darius was gone so they could come back now? Did the aforementioned serial killers get them? Again, the last thing any party needs are serial killers. Also, did Cris know Wayne? Probs, yeah. Cochise wasn’t that big.

“Anyways, I think Aiden and I shooed him off. He doesn’t like skeeter puns apparently, so you could try that if he acts up again?” she said.

She didn’t mind Cris showing up late. She was going to say as much, then-

Johnny stood up, and called out to Fiyori about… wait. Wait wait wait. Did he just openly state that Aiden wanted “feminine attention”? Was that what they were talking about? Did he mean banging? Or just a crush? Both? No idea. But it was a weird thing to randomly call out. If he meant either one, not sure if that was something nice or something terrible. Aiden did look awkward, though.

Junko looked at Johnny’s back as he walked away to piss. Then Aiden, who was waving at Fiyori. Then Fiyori’s face. Then back to Cris.

“… Did that just happen?”

Well, they took it well, at least? Aiden had walked up next to Fiyori to talk. Junko guessed that whatever the hell he and Johnny were talking about, it was about Fiyori. Doing things to Fiyori, if we had to be accurate. Or something. They were making suggestive hand gestures when they talked, of course. But yeah, it seemed like it wasn’t as awkward as it looked. Seemed, at least. Hopefully whatever it was blowed over quickly? Whether it was boning or something else.

Raina was tough, yeah. She was… no-nonsense. Sure, she liked Miku Hatsune enough to look like her, but she wasn’t a pushover. Darius got a firm reminder in the form of a beer can earlier. Lesson: even if someone looks like a Vocaloid, that doesn’t mean that they’re automatically okay with any singing. Wait, maybe she just fully understood drunk Darius’ logic here. Miku equals singing equals let’s harass her with music. Made sense, if you looked at it with the assistance of substances.

For a moment, Junko noticed that he made a “hm” noise. As if in thought. Maybe he thought that Wayne was… you know. She was still sure that they were in the off-stage right now. She was pretty damn sure, the more she thought of it. To be honest, it’d explain why they hadn’t come back yet, though. Aside from, you know, Darius’ antics. But the thought slipped out of focus.

“Yeah. I think she’s the kind of person to, like, kick Darius into outer space or some shit if he tried that again” she said, laughing.

Wait, did anything else happen? Well, Michael and Jonathan were starting to make-up, it looked like. Maria got pissed at her because somehow she wasn’t invited. She still needed to figure out how that happened, honestly. Johnny had pulled out some secret agent abilities to hide weed. What else happened?

“It’s been pretty quiet otherwise. Most of the craziness happened because Darius. Though… apparently I didn’t invite Maria? She magically showed up all pissed. I need to figure out if I forgot or what later.”

She wasn’t sure if she should bring up Jonathan and Michael. It was kind of their personal argument, you know? Did Cris even know about that to begin with? She knew about it, but it wasn’t sure if it was something he knew or should know.
