Staff Meeting, Friday Afternoon (after classes)

The tables and chairs in the lounge had been arranged for the faculty meeting, and there were plenty of snacks and drinks for everyone. There might have been a higher percentage of things that tasted like pumpkin and gingerbread than usual, but that was unavoidable at this time of the year.

Drake was prepared to mingle so much that other demons would facepalm at him.

Where there was coffee, there was Ghanima, perfectly happy to indulge the lesser of her addictions while she waited for the meeting to start.

Anakin had a giant cup of coffee in his hands. Now that Rory was allowed to drink it again, he didn't feel badly at all about indulging.

Tyler had some coffee and was still pony-free.

Colette was there and not too grumpy today.

Really.

Summer helped herself to some coffee, glad for the caffeine boost.

"I think it's important to find out just who on the staff has Facebook and plays Farmville," Drake said solemnly. "Neighborly support and all."

"I have it, but not under this name," Tyler said. "Do I need to get Farmville?"

"Only if you have no qualms about it sucking your life away," Drake grinned. "But you get non-carnivorous fruit trees and cute little animals. And you can make your neighbor's crops sparkle!"

Tyler considered this.

Dubiously.

"It would be better without sparkling and with carnivorous fruit trees."

"You say that now," Drake said, "but when the fruits of the world decide to follow in the footsteps of their veggie brothers' uprising, you'll sing a different tune."

"I kind of liked having something to fight," Tyler said idly. "It was like ... living inside a video game."

"Particularly when the mushrooms came a-calling," Drake agreed. "But I didn't find any gold coins."

"We should demand that for the next attack," Tyler said. "Beat something up, get gold coins."

"Think Zoe can pull some strings and get that arranged for us?" Drake said. "It's only fair, I have to agree."

Tyler laughed. "You should ask her. She might say it's up to Mayor Summers."

Anakin loitered around after the meeting, waiting for the rest of the staff to leave before he approached Zoe.

"I caught up on radio today," he said, meeting her eyes. "Who did we lose?"

"Yes," Anakin said, pain and guilt--maybe he hadn't taught well enough--flashing momentarily in his eyes. "Sam's taking it hard, huh."

Anyone who was asking around about bringing back the dead was taking it hard, in Anakin's view.

Anakin waved his hand in a dismissive gesture. "I'll be fine. This is, sadly, not the first time I've lost a student."

He paused, for a moment showing some uncertainty. "I know both you and John are more than acquainted with this kind of pain," he said quietly, "but if Sam's looking to talk to someone who isn't family...my door's open."

Anakin's lips quirked up. "That's the most diplomatic way I've ever heard it phrased," he said.

"Of course," Anakin said. "Besides, I'm not related. He can yell all he wants and not feel badly about it."

"And yelling or hitting someone who can hit back is much better than, say, searching for someone to bring the dead back to life," Anakin said.

"At least he's not trying to be sneaky about it," Anakin said. "That can only be a good thing. If he was really serious, he'd be asking questions more covertly."

"Learning that some things can't be fixed is one of the truly painful lessons in life," Anakin added.

"I'd give a lot to have it work that way," Anakin replied, eyes haunted as he thought about his children and grandkids. "New rule. Nothing gets to happen to Juliet and Grace."

"I keep trying to get Rory to go along with a giant plastic hamster ball for the little girl," Anakin said. "So far, it's gotten turned down."

He was still hopeful.
