Oh, are you interested in little ol' me?
*he grins, having no qualms with being the center of attention*

Sorry, I can't compare to the epic tales of some of you here, but you could say I'm plenty familiar with the feeling. All the same, it's been a while, what with the nature of my... *clears his throat* job.

Though it's funny you should ask, because recently, things have been a bit more interesting! Some of the ladies here are surprisingly charming. I just may be smitten.

*She looks from him to Lauren, wondering if anything's been going on between them. She can't tell if he's being honest or just trying to tease either her or Lauren.*

Is that so, J? Like, you have a few "favorites" then? Or, is it just one?

*In his annoyance Diego briefly ponders attempting to leave, in spite of the consequences. He is also blissfully unaware of (or unconcerned by) his own backseat moderating.*

No. I'm sorry. I don't even like group therapy, but it isn't about this. Everyone can see that you and Jacques are attracted to each other and are flirting with each other, but your poorly veiled coy remarks have nothing to do with therapy.

This isn't high school, though you act like its. It's prison. And before I'm told to lighten up or that I'm stating the obvious--No, I won't, and yes, I know. *He smiles.*

*he glances over to Diego, amiably enough*

Sorry, but when did you become moderator here?

Besides, I never said it was Mimi that I was talking about. Even if she is head over heels for me. *he punctuates with a grin* She's not the one who wrote the note I found slipped under my cell door the other night. I've been spending much more time with someone else.

That's my therapy! *thumbs up*

I'm simply doing my part to assist the moderator. I try to be helpful. But I would bow to her wishes, of course, if she objects. *He smiles at Lauren, acknowledging her with a nod.*

*He then shakes his head, smiling wryly.* Oh, Jacky. I know you have trouble seeing past those spikes of yours, but I'm sure you're aware that I was giving an example of a type of behavior. Yet you went on to prove my point by doing the same thing again.

Since Jacky's not interested in anything but making brief, shallow statements--with our charming moderator's permission, I hope we can move on?

*Lana shifts in her chair, briefly considers offering her own story of love, then decides she'd rather not.*
Mimi Miney

*Her face slightly reddens at first in anger towards Armando (or maybe it's because of the heat?), but her cheeks blaze and her mouth drops at Jacques' comments.*

N-N-Now wait just a sec, J! When did I ever make any, like, professions of love here?! *She suddenly loses her train of thought as she remembers his other comment.* W-Wait, wait a sec, are you seeing... *Her eyes jump from him to Lauren and back*
blueskyesmiling at 2010-07-24 00:58 (UTC) (PermaLink)
*Roused from whatever she's been contemplating by the rising voices, Lana softly clears her throat. She looks briefly at Mimi, feeling some small sympathy for her, and then shifts her gaze to the others*

Contrary to Mr. Armando's assertion, it's probably quite therapeutic for some of these buried feelings to come out. But perhaps it would be kinder to yourselves to reveal some of these secrets in private?

*He nods at Lana, respectfully.* You might be right, Ms. Skye, but at the same time, that's exactly my point.

I don't necessarily agree with the principles of group therapy, but it's meant to focus on group bonds, not on the individual. That's why I think this line of conversation is inappropriate and unproductive.

For once, I'm going to agree with Mimi. Jacky, there's no call to disrespect her like that. Bringing up these private details in a public therapy session is unfair to the other parties involved. I did mention your conspicuous flirting, yes, but only because it was already a part of the discussion. You've gone too far.
blueskyesmiling at 2010-07-24 01:31 (UTC) (PermaLink)
Group bonds... but romantic love is an especially exclusive emotion, don't you think? Even speaking of it requires someone to violate some level of intimacy. *tilts her head* It's an interesting quandary.

((sorry, typo!))

*He's been taking it all in, arms folded across his chest once more.*

Yeah, I don't really know what therapy is supposed to be like, but I don't know if this is actually helping anyone. It doesn't seem like this is even what Lauren wanted to talk about.

*He glances at Mimi, then addresses Jacques.*
It's okay that you weren't interested in what I had to say. I'm no authority, and you're not obligated. But what you're doing, now, that was what I meant. Not every flirtation or even date has to lead to something big and meaningful, but you should try not to hurt other people while you're having fun. Especially someone you say you like, someone you treat as a friend.
If your good time comes at that someone's expense, I don't think very much of it.

A-Actually... *Lauren is bright red, but rather than her shy self, she looks rather cross!* I think Jacques if fine to say whatever he likes! Um, I mean, as moderator, that what I think. Especially if it's the truth.

Re: ((sorry, typo!))

Especially when... I'm the one doing the hurting...!!

*He's been taking the negativity in stride-- mostly. His jaw was clenched and his temper threatening to rise, feeling rather cornered. But when Lauren chimes in, he turns; he's a bit surprised by the look on her face, and ends up grinning rather widely.*

Ahha, our sweet little moderator has spoken! Thank you, Lauren. Constantly being told my thoughts are wrong is hardly therapeutic.

But how on earth are you hurting anyone? You're helping us all out here.
Mimi Miney

*Mimi finds herself agreeing with Jacques--about Lauren, that is.*

Like, yeah Paups, you didn't do anything! *She feels a wave of guilt wash over her; she didn't mean to help upset the young lady.* I'm sorry though. Like, I didn't mean to, like, totally derail the conversation there. My bad.

*She casts Jacques a 'look.'* You're not wrong J. I mean, not exactly. You can say what you want, but y'know, you've been being obnoxious too.
