[Spam for Tim]

I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it. )


[Luther is sitting at his desk in his room, wearing a white t-shirt and looking kind of... uncomfortable's the wrong word, really, because he looks happy, but also a little like he doesn't really know where to start addressing people.]

I've been here for about seven months. I know that's not really a long time when you compare it to how long some people've been here, and it doesn't even feel like it's been that long to me, sometimes. Time's weird.

Anyway, this isn't going to be some lame confession about what I did before coming here, because I've talked about it enough and frankly, I seriously doubt any of you care enough to hear about it. [But mostly he just really doesn't want to talk about it still. It's shameful and shitty, and he just wants to go back and do all of it over again.

Still, instead of just wrapping this up, saying what he needs to say and continuing with the sort of flippant bravado that's as second nature as breathing, he gets a little more serious, because this is personal, and he feels sort of stupid saying this to a broad audience.]

tw for talk of suicide and suicidal thoughts )

[He shrugs and smiles a little, somewhere between smug and self depreciating, because he still feels like an asshole, but he's getting out of here. Maybe he'll actually get to do something with his life now.] So, I guess that's it. I'm not sticking around here a minute more than I have to, but it's been real, Barge.

[Luther's sitting at his desk in his cabin, which is a plain looking dorm room. You can't really get a good look at it, but there are two desks, two beds, two bookshelves, all that good stuff, and only one side of the room has been touched at all.

It's strange, sometimes, staying in the dorm room he'd been sharing with Robbie before everything had gone wrong. He's just grateful none of the other teenager's stuff was in here when he arrived.]

I'm sure everyone's sick and tired of people trying to find meaning in what happened, [And he secretly kinda feels like finding meaning in stuff you don't understand is bullshit sort of maybe kind of it's very complicated and involves thinking about things he doesn't want to get into SO MOVING ON.] but all I learned from that is I'm never going to take being warm blooded for granted again.

[That said, he has a way shallower reason for pinging the network today, and he moves on to it quickly, sounding somewhere between amused and bored and generally like a normal slightly petulant seventeen year old.] Does anyone have any movies they'd be cool with lending me? I'm getting kind of tired of watching Minority Report over and over again.

[Private to Doyle]

Thanks, again. Sorry for sneaking up on you like that.

[As many people are no doubt aware by this point, not having fingers and hands and all that is a massive pain in the ass if you're trying to post to the network, so Luther had been more or less content to just ignore it like any other day. Being a miserably depressed teenager with trust issues = no real desire to interact with other people most of the time.

But he was starting to feel kind of sluggish and cold, which really didn't make operating the comm easy, but he eventually gets it and you're getting a very toothy, scaly thing addressing the network, sounding a little frustrated and desperate and therefore pretty much how Luther sounds all the time when he actually posts and isn't trying to be normal.]

Does anyone have like, an extra heat lamp or something? I never realized how cold it was on board before.

[He laughs a little, and it's somewhere between borderline hysterical and just frustrated.] What's this flood supposed to teach us, exactly? I think I learned everything I needed to know about reptiles in freshmen biology, thanks.

[ooc: Luther's a spectacled caiman, which means he's an about six foot long alligator thing that can be understood by everyone.]

[Filtered to the other Barge Teenagers/Young Adults]

[Luther's had a lot of stuff to think about after port ended, and he's spent a lot of time holed up in his room not interacting with anyone else, which... isn't really saying much, but he's still less around than he usually might be.]

How far did you get in school, before you came here?

[He's not sure he really wants to talk about this with anyone, but he still wants to know, maybe get an idea of what other people were planning on doing when they got back. If they ever did. If he ever did, or if he even wanted to.]

[Private to Steph]

[He's been sitting on this one for a long time, because it's a weird thing to feel responsible for something that he knew, really knew wasn't his fault, but he knows he needs to say something, so he ends up sort of blurting it out, almost like he just wants to get it over with.]

Look, I'm sorry about what happened. In port. [Like she wouldn't know what he's talking about, I mean really.]

That wasn't me. I wouldn't- [He cuts himself off quickly, wanting to just say what he has to say and pretend like none of this had ever happened.] I'm sorry.

I know I'm probably the last person to be able to judge about this kind of thing, but you have serious issues. [Meaning, why did I spend the whole flood stalking people I don't like. :|]

[Open Spam for the Gym]

[So, while Luther's someone who definitely keeps to himself, he does actually spend a lot of time outside of his room. It's his old dorm from St. Michael's, and he's got very little interest in hanging out there and being reminded of things like Robbie or what had happened in general, so except for sleeping and occasional periods of 'I just need somewhere to be by myself for a while', he tends to avoid it.

And today, is in the gym shooting hoops. It's quasi mindless, and he's not
great at it, but it's something to do when you don't feel like reading and don't know how to fight or really have any interest in learning. He's been in here for a while, minding his own business and probably wouldn't really be opposed to playing with someone else, honestly. Breaks up the rhythm.]

[Filtered away from Admiral Kirk]

[Hi, Barge. The younger, darker haired Kirkfais on board is not pleased with Jim's shenanigans, and is not bothering to hide this fact in the slightest. HE ALREADY HATED YOU ON PRINCIPLE FOR HAVING HIS FACE, AND NOW YOU DO THIS.

... Actually really he just kind of wants to make Jim's life miserable and doesn't care particularly about the take over itself. Luther is a little shit. :c]

So is anyone actually going to do something about this, or are we just going to sit around letting him get away with whatever he wants? I thought wardens were supposed to be, you know, people who wouldn't do this kind of thing?

And this is the second time he's done it? Why is he still a warden?

[Luther wasn't affected by the flood, but he's been doing some thinking about it. It's not really that hard to figure out what the pattern was when you think about it, and he's been spending the last couple days wondering what life would have been like if there'd never been a Robbie, or a Father Kelly. Or David Bennett.

If it hadn't been for David Bennett, he wouldn't be here. He never would have gotten caught, never would have become a murderer, never would have watched his life falling apart, never would have chosen death over life in prison, never would have would up
here, and that's... pretty appealing, to be totally honest.]

Did anyone actually like the person they were during that thing? Seems like all anyone can do is complain or say they're glad it's over.

I wasn't affected. I'm just curious. [Sort of. He's not actually really in the mood to talk to like, every single one of you, but he still felt like saying something. Or pointing it out.]

So, everyone neglected to mention the biweekly murder sprees around here. [And all that it's really doing is undermining your argument of yeah you totally belong here with all the crazy mass murderers who apparently do this sort of thing more than twice in their life. :V]

Anything else that didn't make it into the welcome packet new people should be aware of?

[He's given himself about a day or so to get used to everything, and has mostly been keeping to himself in his room, trying to wrap his mind around what happened. It's given him time to pull himself together (and change out of the clothes he showed up in), so when he clicks on the feed, it shows what kind of looks like a teenage, darker hair version of Kirk, wearing a white t-shirt and looking vaguely uncomfortable.]

I never really got the whole video blogging thing. [Not that they would have allowed it at St. Michael's any way. Because you know. It sucks.]

My name's Luther. I already got the talk about why I'm here and what the plan is, but I honestly think there's been some kind of mistake. I'm not supposed to be here. So if we can speed the whole "graduating" process along, I'd appreciate it.

[Private to Shego]

So, thanks. For giving me a hand earlier. [Also don't tell anyone about what a mess he was, god damn. :|]
