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?"

"Oh, Jamie." Barbara put a hand on his arm, giving it a bit of a squeeze. "It's...just this place. It's so big and confusing before things like Doctors and time lines get involved." She understood what he was on about, it was so frustrating sometimes to be surrounded by Doctors who weren't really the Doctor, as far as she was concerned. And they just kept coming...!

"As far as the poddings go, GLaDOS told me that crew members were repodded because keeping them unpodded was worse, because they were sick or not coping." At least it was something like that. "They're safer in their pods than what they are out here."

"How do you know?" she asked gently. The previous smile had not gone unnoticed, and Barbara wanted to know just how she could bring it back. Or rather, what was holding it back.

Jamie had a point. History had involved battles such as theirs with the losing side not exactly fairing too well. Or at all, as the case were.

"But we have to hope," Barbara said quietly.

"Try telling him that," she smiled gently and rubbed at his shoulder.

Barbara sat for a moment longer in silence but stood and offered her hand to the Scottsman. "Come on. Let's do something else for a while and forget that there's a war on."

"What do you enjoy doing?" she asked once they had been walking in silence for a time, long since having dropped his hand. "Outside of traveling, of course."

"A few things," she answered quickly, not wanting to take the focus from Jamie. "If we went into a sound proof room, would you play your popes for me?" Because she could hardly make him a good meal, or throw Victoria at him to make him feel better. And music always lifted Ian's spirits, surely the same could be said for Jamie? Even if it was bagpipes.
