Quinn thought about it, she really did, but she decided not to go home.

Mostly -- though she wouldn't admit it -- it was about not being brave enough to go home and see what was gone. It was easier to live in denial when she was at least a little ignorant.

So she was more or less trying to do normal stuff. Like returning a prank call. If she had the source a little twisted, well, she was not necessarily at her best.

That done, she sat down on her bed and tried to read, some stupid fluffy chicklit story about people she kind of wanted to smack. It wasn't going so well: She kept having to go back and reread every third word.

Bruce was feeling a little twitchy. He'd spent a week preparing for absolutely anything he could think of, but whatever would eventually come hadn't actually come yet. It was annoying. And after a week, he really just needed to talk to somebody to help keep him sane. Because yes, he still had some issues with being patient. He'd have to get better with that eventually.

Anyway, he saw that Quinn's door was cracked, so he knocked and asked, "Quinn?"

"Come in," Quinn called. she could deal with having someone to talk to who didn't massively annoy her. It might help keep the headache at bay.

"What's up?"

"At the moment? Not a lot," Bruce said. "I just figured I'd check in to see who stuck around."

Quinn smiled. "Yeah, I can't deal with going home and finding out that Lima is now right on the coast or something. At least here everybody else knows bizarre things are happening. It's slightly less horrifying."

"And if Fandom ends up somewhere in the Midwest, it's not anything we haven't seen before," Bruce joked. "I tried to go home last weekend to check in on people but... Let's just say the travel schedule didn't go as planned. After that, I figured it was best to just stay here and see what happens."

"That's where I am too," Quinn nodded. "Going down with the ship, or something."

But she'd been looking at him quizzically as she spoke. "Is Gotham gone?"

"I'm not going to speculate," Bruce said. "There could be any number of reasons why I can't call anyone or make it there by portal. Until I have solid proof, I'm not believing it."

Quinn studied him for a moment longer. "I have to say, you're holding together really well. And probably you're right. Maybe phnes went away but people stayed."

"I'm good at repressing things," Bruce admitted. "It's probably not healthy, but it'll help me see this Auditor mess through to the end."

"Yeah, I didn't really get it when the principal said that," Quinn said. "I mean, auditors? That's like a tax thing."

"All I know is that if I see someone I don't recognize carrying a calculator, I may hit them just to play it safe," Bruce said. It was kind of a joke.

Kind of.

In reality, he'd sneak up on them and throw something at them.

"You're going to walk up and just punch somebody who may be zapping people out of existence?" Quinn asked skeptically. "Yeah, it was really nice knowing you."

"I'd feel better until I disappeared," Bruce said.

"Don't worry, I won't actually do anything that reckless. I think you know me well enough to know I'll be smart."

And then there was a knock. And a guy on the other side of the door whose only reason for not flat-out barging in was that he was concerned she might not be fully dressed.

"Dude, what the hell?"

Hello to you too, Topher.

Date: 2011-12-04 01:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
"You started it," Quinn said, with her usual degree of maturity and grace. "You drunk dialed me twice, and now one of your random friends is in on it too. It's juvenile."

Way to jump to conclusions, Quinn.

dollpocalypse: (conv: r u for real?)
From: [personal profile] dollpocalypse
Topher did a quick inventory of the people who might, by any stretch of the imagination, be called his friends.

"...did Kenzi call you?" he asked, baffled.

Date: 2011-12-04 01:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
"Actually I haven't seen her in a while," Quinn reported. "It was ... some random guy. Who was obsessed with geese. I didn't know the voice."

Date: 2011-12-04 01:17 am (UTC)
dollpocalypse: (!?: suspicious)
From: [personal profile] dollpocalypse
Topher squinted at her.

"Warren?"

Maybe if he'd been telling Quinn that he wasn't a goose...

Date: 2011-12-04 01:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
"Didn't sound as hot as Warren." Yes, Quinn could totally assess hotness from a voice, it was a gift. "Are you seriously pretending you have no idea who did this?"

Date: 2011-12-04 01:23 am (UTC)
dollpocalypse: (spazflail: dude i got no clue)
From: [personal profile] dollpocalypse
Little-known fact about Topher, Quinn: He wasn't that great a liar.

"Sorry," he said through the door, throwing his hands up. Okay, maybe he wasn't sincerely sorry. "'Cause if it wasn't Warren or Kenzi and I'm guessing it wasn't Peter or Ender--" which was a very wise guess, "--then the only other guy I know who gets drunk would've sounded, you know."

Hot.

A beat.

"Oh, maybe it was Ben." Real nice, Topher.

Date: 2011-12-04 01:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
Quinn shook her head impatiently. It didn't strike her as Ben's style, either. She sighed and made a show of reaching for her phone and dialing into her messages, then held it up to Topher.

"Just listen."

She didn't add 'you break the phone, I break you.' She trusted Topher that tiny little bit.

From: [personal profile] dollpocalypse
Well. If it had been a really cool phone, he might have wanted to play with it, but for now he was just going to keep hiding out on the other end of the door and listen.

"...yeah, I have no idea who that is," he concluded.

Date: 2011-12-04 01:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
It was a totally normal phone, though the case was pink and shiny.

"Huh." A normal person would have said she was sorry, there. Quinn wasn't sure she could do that, but she did flush a bit. "I guess I just assume all drunk dialing losers know each other"

"Well. We don't."

Apparently.

"Hey!"

Date: 2011-12-04 01:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chief-cheerio.livejournal.com
"Which part did you want to argue with?" Quinn asked, with one arched eyebrow.
