10:48 pm

ryantits: Ned what did you just say?

redned: fuck dude, I am so, so, sorry.

ryantits: Sorry doesn’t change anything!

KEITH: ned, what the fuck?

redned: Ryan I am so damn sorry I am such an asshole im so fucking stupid

ryantits: I’ll see you guys tomorrow. Bye.

(ryantits has left the chat)

KEITH: great fucking job ned.

Sara Rubin: Wait, Ryan likes Shane?

redned: obviously.

Sara Rubin: This is great!

quintaaaaa: youre kidding. how is this great at all?

Sara Rubin: Because Shane likes Ryan!

KEITH: does he?

Sara Rubin: Yes! So now they can get together and Ned and I wont have to deal with them pining!

redned: you think they will?

Sara Rubin: Well, hopefully.

redned: bullshit. both of them are so shy about their feelings. It took them forever to even say they were even close.

KEITH: exactly. so they wont.

Sara Rubin: Unless we help!

quintaaaaa: we shouldn’t just meddle around in their love lives. This is between the two of them and them alone.

Sara Rubin: But we’re their closest friends!

quintaaaaa: I know, but this is personal shit. we should let them figure it out.

Sara Rubin: I guess youre right. We should get some sleep.

redned: god, I hope ryan doesn’t kill me.

KEITH: just go to bed guys. Itll work out.

quintaaaaa: god, this just gets even more depressing.


PM with shanesaysfuckyou

ryantits: shane, you have every right to be mad at me. im mad at me. i think im a fucking idiot. i just want to let you know that i fucked up, i fucked up so damn much, and i feel like a dick because our friendship is just wasted now and you dont have to look me in the eyes or talk to me or work with me on anything and i can move my desk away from yours tomorrow. 

Shane, I am so, so, so sorry you ever had to meet me. Because all I do is ruin things.

Good night.

PM with shanesaysfuckyou


Sara Rubin: So, how was your day?

shanesaysfuckyou: do you really want the answer to that question ?

Sara Rubin: Yes, because I care about you very much

shanesaysfuckyou:: you’re a gem, sara.

shanesaysfuckyou: shitty.

Sara Rubin: Should I ask why or do I already know the answer?

shanesaysfuckyou: if you’ve all been gossiping about poor little shane and how fucking pathetic he is, then you do know.

Sara Rubin: I’m sure not that  many people know.

shanesaysfuckyou: oh ? ok. well no one will look me in the eyes, nobody said anything to me, and ned is acting like this martyr, trying to be all heroic or whatever. And ryan was the worst. He avoided me at all costs, he didn’t show up for filming, he moved his desk away from mine, and when I tried to sit with him at lunch, he walked away. So my day has been fan fucking tastic.

Sara Rubin: Sorry, man.

shanesaysfuckyou: and to top it all off, I get a text from ryan at 1 am that I didn’t see that said he was sorry I ever met him.

Sara Rubin: Oh no.

Sara Rubin: What do you plan on doing?

shanesaysfuckyou: oh I don’t know, kill myself

Sara Rubin: Stop it. I know you’re going through some shit, but you shouldn’t joke about that stuff.

shanesaysfuckyou: who said I was joking

Sara Rubin: On my way to your place with two bottles of vodka.

shanesaysfuckyou: but its Thursday

Sara Rubin: So?

KEITH: oh they got the full story from hamlet over here

redned: how was I not supposed to tell them?

KEITH: maybe because you cant fucking whisper

KEITH: didn’t you notice that ryan ran to the bathroom with his head in his hands after you explained???

Sara Rubin: Oh dear.

redned: I just keep fucking up, don’t i

Sara Rubin: You cant blame yourself Ned.

redned: watch me

quintaaaaa: I vote zach and eugene first

Sara Rubin: Great! The votes are all in.

KEITH: the fuck what about me
