[Wanted to follow up on Adam and Jason’s conversation at the coffee house. Since it’s rather close quarters, I could see others getting involved too since it sounded like a lot of people wanted a chance to talk to Concord about everything that’s happened over the last couple of days.]
Social situations were never Adam’s forte. It was always hard to tell what people thought and meant. Someone could say one thing and mean something entirely different. The Concordance had made a lot of that easier, but it was still something Adam tried to avoid if he could. At the Blintzkrieg, however, there wasn’t a whole lot of space to avoid anything.
Everyone was still tightly packed and talking after the AMA. It’s been a lot heavier and emotional frought than anyone probably suspected. A lot of the questions Adam hadn’t been ready for, but the thing that had surprised him was Jason.
At the best of times, Jason was a storm of emotions–all of them cascading off one another and banking off in unexpected ways. Today was different. Adam still saw the storm, but something about it seemed more focused. Directed. He’d felt it when Jason tried to comfort him during the AMA. Jason was trying to reach out. Adam was happy to try and grab onto anything after everything that’d happened over the past couple of days.
Adam waited for his moment. Don’t drag him away from anyone else. Don’t be a bother. Just… try.
“Hey Jason,” Adam said quietly. He didn’t quite know what to talk about. It’s hard to start off a conversation with, “Thanks for being there. You can’t tell because Concord doesn’t have any biological reactions, but I’ve been crying for like the entire time since they started asking questions. It comes off as a Weird gaseous blue energy that no one seems to be able to see.”
Instead, Adam tried to check in with what he thought Jason thought was important. “Uhh, so you went into the Sepiaverse, right? Did you find your dad?”
