[ it's early in the morning when Tommy decides to post to the network. very early, if the faintly audible morning chorus in the background is anything to go by. ]

Okay, so-- people date while they're stuck here? I keep hearing about it and every time I wanna know why, 'cause it's crazy. Prisoner solidarity, I get that much, but you're never going to see this person again, ever, so what's the point?

[ he pauses. ]

If you already knew them, that's different.

People date under a lot of weird circumstances. Can't stop the romance, apparently.

What about just doing it for fun?

Like yeah, I get that, never seeing someone again and being like "let's go steady" seems kind of like setting yourself up for a fall but. Y'know, just to have fun or something, it's fine.

That's so different from how life can work out for you when on your own world?

[ Annie gives negative flips about dating, and thinks it's silly for other reasons, but this logic to her is simply... pointless. People die or get moved apart or find themselves separated at little to no notice in life as it is. She's watched it with the people she trained with in the 104th.

It's not such a unique situation here. At least you knew the end was guaranteed, in a way. No point in planning on forever.

When you've been here a while, you may recognize how preferable it is to being alone.

A question, before I answer yours.

How long do you expect to be here? That is, how long do you think it will be, before you're sent back to where you came from?

Why shouldn't they? Why should people just stop living their lives just because they're somewhere else?

What if... What if some of us don't have anything to go back to?
