Summary: It sucks when the fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night. It sucks even more when you're not feeling well. But it helps to find someone out in the cold who's willing to share a blanket. Roxas needs to learn to read the signs.
Author's Notes: This is NOT the other big piece I said I was working on. This is...well, it's partially what happens when the dorm you live in is plagued by morons who think it's funny to pull the fire alarms on an almost regular basis. You see a lot of interesting people when 800-odd residents are forced to crawl of out bed and stand in a dark parking lot for twenty minutes while the fire department clears the entire building. It's also what happens when I decide I want to try for a romance that doesn't really go the way it ought to, while keeping sex out of it. I think I managed that, for while there is mention of sex and sexual things, the closest the characters actually get isn't even close.
And maybe I just needed to play with the setting that I know too much about by now.
