[12:17] <Ai> Whether there was or not, Ai was visible - and audible. She had her tray from the cafeteria, and after putting it down on a big enough table for, ostensibly, either the team or maybe people like Shizeng or Reiko if they dared? …She had actually over-dramatically flopped onto the table with a "Bwaaaahhh…" noise.
[12:36] <Minaplo> Ai would soon be joined in her 'bwahhhh' by Reiko, who slumped down at the table and lowered her head onto it. "Bwahhhhhhh."
[12:36] <Minaplo> "What's the matter with you two…?" Said Shizeng, taking a third seat. He was chewing a muesli bar.
[12:42] <Ai> Ai managed to pull her head up to turn to Shizeng. Despite the noise, she wasn't… quite bleary-eyed. "The teachers are being extra weird today… And it's not even Asaka's replacement, which you'd think being new… But th-then again you're in that homeroom same as us." Ai said, shaking her head. "But also the rain and the weird stuff and the kids having protests and rassafrassa gotterdamerung and…"
[12:42] <Ai> What?
[12:50] <Minaplo> "I'm just sleepy." Said Reiko, yawning. "Tiiiired. Rain making me snoozy too…"
[12:50] <Minaplo> "I don't know what a rassafrassa gotterdammerung is." Said Shizeng.
[12:54] <Ai> Ai pouted overdramatically at Shizeng. "…The first one's just a noise, like 'grumble grumble', you know? …" She looked left and right. "The Gotterdammerung is… roughly what Norse mythology called the apocalypse! The 'Twilight of the Gods'. It's pretty metal, literally given how much German metal bands throw around." …Geek moment done, she started working on some of her food - a little fish-and-rice bowl, for example.
[12:54] <Ai> "It just sometimes feels like people want it to look like the end of days. Stressful!"
[01:02] <Minaplo> "Oh. Today has been pretty quiet for me, so I didn't realise." Said Shizeng. He reached out and poked Ai gently with a banana. "Banana?"
[01:10] <Ai> Ai …stared at the banana. "I. Y-you. That's your banana. Are you just offering me a banana because? …" Ai was weirdly preoccupied with the proper ownership of Banana.
[01:12] <Minaplo> Shizeng stared down at Banana for a moment, as though seriously considering the implications.
Then he offered it back to Ai. "No one feels like they're witnessing the apocalypse if they're holding a banana."
[01:18] <Ai> "…Oh. Th… that's very absurdist of you." Ai said. It sounded like a legitimate compliment.
[01:26] <Minaplo> "Is this what they call observational comedy?" Asked Shizeng wonderingly. Then, he obligingly reversed his grip on the banana and placed it in front of Ai.
[01:26] <Minaplo> "Bananas are healthy, too." Said Reiko, still faceplanted onto the desk. "Ugggghhhhh. No one's gonna care if I nap through lunch, right?"
