Losing Them In Pieces [Open]

Who: Jamie and open!
Where: The Brig, unless someone drags him out from it.
Summary: A reaction to Billy's repodding and Zetta's subsequent announcement.
Warnings: General unhappiness warnings. Possibly a bit of sulking and a reluctance to do things.

Zetta's announcement had infuriated Jamie, and for a few moments he had forgotten it was supposed to be an act. All he wanted to do was get out of his cell, hunt down that overgrown piece of parchment and find out how hard it would be to punch a book in what served for its face. But the anger soon faded as the reality set in. Another teammate, gone. Only this time it was someone he had grown to care for like the members of his clan - like a brother. It wasn't a mistake or a joke. Maybe it wasn't as permanent as Punchy's death, but in some ways it hurt even worse.

And...maybe Zetta had been right, act or no act. What was to stop the Daligig from repodding the rest of the rebels or even the crew entirely? Yes, they'd lose the investment they had in the crew, and have to start all over again, but they'd have the time to adjust the systems, undo the changes that had already been done and start over with a group that had no idea what was going on. Or what if they decided a more effective tack would be to pod the rest of those who the rebels cared for? What if they repodded the Doctor? Or Victoria? He couldn't bear the thought of losing her, too, not now. Not again.

A wave of listlessness rolled over him, and he slid down the wall to sit heavily on the floor. His eyes found a random spot, and he stared at it despondently, too caught up in the downward spiral of his thoughts to actually see it. Why should they even bother trying to fight? Was it even worth it anymore?

"Och, what's the use?"

Going by the timing of things, Shoutarou had an idea of what Jamie was talking about. Across the way, he sat in a cell on the opposite side - kind of a funny image, an imprisoned security officer.

"That's a valid question, though a loaded one..."

Shoutarou stands, moving to the doorway of his cell, and leaned against it.

"The kind of answers it provokes. Most people go the sugar-coating route, try to dress up the situation in favor of improving the mood." He makes a slightly disgusted face, then sighs. "Kinda guilty of doing that myself sometimes, but... Ahh, that's getting off-topic." He shakes his head, then looks out at Jamie. "You talking about Billy's message?"

"Certainly seems that way, but even so..." He sighs, looking off to a different area. "We can't let it get to us. Even when it hurts. Especially when it hurts." His gaze turns back to Jamie. "It's hard, that's for sure, but they'd want us to keep going."
