Room 312, Wednesday morning, early
Last night's ... adventure? Excursion? Mess? Nightmare? Had ended when Raven brought everyone back to Fandom very early. Dinah was too wired to sleep, even though she was as wiped out as she could remember being in recent memory. She left a second message for Jaime, and collapsed on her bed, door still half open, Camille snoozing on her chest as she tried to make sense of recent events.

Sleep was going to be a long way off.

[for weldedtomyspine, but open before and after, just like the door.]

Before Jaime

Azula prepared for her first class and passed Dinah's room along the way. She paused, both eyebrows raised in surprise.

"I thought you left."

Re: Before Jaime

Dinah raised her head, then let it flop back, finding a smile in her somewhere. "I thought you left."

Re: Before Jaime

Azula snorted, "So did I. But brother is determined I return to Fandom despite his many unexpected summons."

She looked at Dinah with a practiced eye. "You've been fighting."

Re: Before Jaime

"Zuzu still being capricious, hunh?" Dina shook her head sadly, then grimaced. "Yeah. Raven needed back-up. And then all hell broke loose three or four times in one night. I'm thrashed."

Re: Before Jaime

"He's enjoying it and, of course, I must jump where dear brother commands." She seemed to have been missing all the best events. Thank you ever so, Zuzu. "But you won other wise you wouldn't be here."

Jaime felt like a bad boyfriend for not having answered the phone. Maybe even a bad friend period. As soon as he got that second message he rushed over to Dinah's room.

Dinah smiled in relief when she saw him, still hugging Camille close to herself. "Hey."

"Hey," Jaime said quietly, moving in close, but not reaching out to hug her yet. He wasn't sure if that was the proper response.

Dinah reached out for him, but had to warn, "Shields are shot right now. But I'm too tired, completely wiped out..." To be in the mood for anything more than the tightest hug possible. "I don't want to sleep."

Jaime didn't even hesitate as he stepped forward and wrapped his arms gently around her. "No sleeping," he agreed softly. He'd find some way to keep her up.

Away from Raven, who she had to stay strong for, and away from everyone else who just wouldn't understand, Karla was just about ready for a small, emotional collapse. Almost blindly, she sought out Dinah.

"It's all my fault," she whispered, woebegone, in Dinah's doorway. "All those things I said--I made her do it, Dinah. I did." And then burst into tears.

Post-Jaime...

Dinah had had a nap, a cry, and time with the boyfriend. So this was something she could now handle. And that included hugging Karla for all she was worth and telling her, "It so isn't. It so wasn't. God, Karla. Don't even think that for a second."

Re: Post-Jaime...

Karla nodded and wailed into Dinah's shirt. "It was! You heard what I said to her! I was just awful! And the worst part is--I wouldn't take back any of it! Oh, Dinah! I'm horrible!"

Re: Post-Jaime...

"You are not!" Dinah tugged her over to sit on her bed, and reached for the Kleenex. "I said the same stuff to her when I met her. Arella was an absentee mom for forever. You were mad, but it was all true, and you had reason. Arella made her own choices." She hugged her harder, offering her a tissue. "Honey, you're completely exhausted. C'mon. Breathe for me?"

Re: Post-Jaime...

"I had a nap," Karla protested weakly, but followed Dinah over to the bed anyway. "Between Drake's class and Loki's. And visited Raven, too. Mother Night, she's so broken and--" Karla sniffled, but didn't repeat that she was at fault. "I made her tea."

It was like a sequitur.
