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?"

Hiccup was in the cell next to him.

"Is that the sound of someone in need of an inspiring speech?" he asked. "If it is, ask someone in the next cell over. I'm awful at 'em."

The Doctor hadn't been repodded yet.

And by either sheer luck or coincidence or just a penchant for being very extremely good at appearing at odd places, the Doctor had popped up on the other side of Jamie's cell, looking about the same as he had since before Sobek. He'd been very careful about that. Humans liked things stable, as boring as that could be, and sometimes you simply had to look the part to get them back in their little comfort zones. The Doctor looked up at the barrier between them, then at his human stuck inside the brig.

"The use of what? That's a big question, you know. Right there behind 'why' and 'what's that smell?'" The Doctor said. He offered Jamie a soft smile. It didn't look right for Jamie to be sitting there to him; not the young man who made it a personal mission to charge at each and every Redcoat in existence.

But this was about a close friend and that was another thing entirely. Loads different!

Barbara could feel eyes on her from somewhere. She looked around the room and - oh! - there was Jamie. At first she smiled because Jamie was such a nice young man, but then she noticed his lack of usual spirit.

"Are you alright?" Barbara asked once she'd approached and crouched down next to him.

She'd be caught eventually, and really, once she knew Billy was caught it had been easy to catch her. She had been moving around the ship as much as she could to avoid getting caught, to help aid people in what they were doing against the Daligig. After Billy being podded, she couldn't bring herself to really do anything. Everything felt like pain, the reminder of what she lost unbearable, and so security found her and brought her here.

Kaya stared ahead, quietly, saying nothing. She managed to give Jamie a wave, but that was all she could do.

She shouldn't be outside of the house, really, but oh! Lessons and words be damned for all the good it did. Victoria had seen Zetta's speech as well and knew it would affect Jamie in some away. Against her better judgement, she had left the relative safety of the house to find him, although thankfully she had been pointed out by a few others exactly where he was.

She didn't like what she saw. Yet she couldn't blame he really, she knew all too well what it was like to lose someone you cared for and...all she could do was try to be of some support. Gentle, she put a hand on his shoulder.

"...Like, on a philosophical level, or are you just really bored with the stuff on your omnicom?" Paco asked from the other side of the hall and slightly to the left. "Because I'll swap with you if you're bored. I accidentally downloaded a bunch of soap operas and I'm actually thinking about watching them."

If she leaned rather too close to the energy barrier holding her in the cell, Anwei could just see Jamie's downturned head and slumped shoulders, across the corridor and up.

"We shouldn't despair." Not now, not when the first part of the plan to get the Daligig off the ship had gone, well, maybe not smoothly but with no casualties that she knew off.

Except for the repoddings, of course.

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..."
