Science Is King

Science dictates lives: what you do, where you live, who you marry. It takes care of you, covers your bills, keeps you healthy, and all it asks in return is that you participate in a few experiments. Ridgeway has always been a control group, left mostly alone, but the Department of Science has been moving in, and everything is about to change.

"Baby we were born with fire and gold in our eyes."

EST + he/him


Jackson rolled his shoulders back and took in a deep breath as he looked to the sky. He wasn't completely prepared for the venture home. Normally, he would have been practically sprinting home but with him receiving his partner just recently and hearing about his brothers being at home.. Jackson chuckled at his own uneasiness. To think that such a frequent event could be so exhilarating and make him so shy he was having his doubts of visiting his family. After all, everyone received at least one partner by the time they were 25. He was coming up on 23, he knew it would be happening soon. On top of that, several of his bothers had already been paired with their partners.

He'd already met with Isabelle and she was seemingly everything he could have hoped for and more. Sure, they were a bit awkward together but it was their first time meeting up with one another. Jackson wrote it off quickly and was feeling fairly confident moving forward. He did his best to not think of all the possibilities that could ruin everything.. he didn't want to be in a foul mood when he got home, he would certainly be called out on it by someone in his family if not all of them. Hopefully his brothers weren't too upset about not going to them first with his fantastic news. It was possible his parents had yet to say anything though he doubted this was the case.

None the less, despite what uncertainties he might of had about going home his feet continued to move him along seemingly on their own. Simply the act of visiting home was so ingrained in him he didn't even need to think about what he was doing, his body just moved. Before any more thoughts of turning around could enter his mind he saw his family's house come into view and he gave a big smile. He was home. He quickly made his way to his house, and threw the door open, "Hello? Anyone home?" he'd call out loudly. Were his brother's here yet? Maybe things would be easier if he could talk about everything with his just parents, and then deal with the brother's questions after.. but then there was the fact that he could save time if he just had everyone nearby at the same time..

Nathan hadn't been living in a house of his own for very long, but still he would occasionally feel a little sting of homesickness. Just every now and then, when he looked up from whatever he was doing and found the house empty. Sure he had Lili, and he was enjoying her company very much, not to mention the two dogs making a ruckus, but it wasn't quite the same as a house full of brothers. He missed that. So he was more than happy to drop by his childhood home when his mother called, happy to see his family gather. She hadn't told him why she wanted them to get together, and he hadn't asked. He was just happy to see everybody.

He had already been at the house for a while, eagerly talking about the new movie project he'd been hired for to anyone who'd listen. At this point, actually, he'd been into so much detail that it was almost as if a sigh of relief went through the house when the door opened and Jackson's voice echoed - it gave the family an excuse to talk about something else.

Nathan immediately got on his feet at the sound of his brother's voice and came to greet him in his usual manner - by enveloping him in a tight hug. Jackson might be the older one of the two, but Nathan had several inches on him, and he was more than happy to point that out.

"We're on the patio", he pointed back over his own shoulder once he had released his brother from his grip.

Sean hadn't been home--his parents' house would always be home--in the few weeks since he'd been partnered to Kitty. He'd been doing his best to get settled, to really put his best foot forward in this new relationship. That meant working on not falling back into the darkness that had kept him living in his old room at his parents' house instead of in his own for nine months. But his mom had called and asked him to come over, and how could he refuse the wonderful woman who had raised him? He was relieved to have an excuse to go home and not have to try so hard, at least for the space of an evening.

He'd brought Cavall with him because the dog would be upset it Sean came back smelling of familiar people. Nearly half the time that Cavall had been with Sean had been at the Jones family home, and he'd loved all the extra love and attention as well as the company of the other canine family members. Cavall was currently resting at Sean's feet, tired from playing with the other dogs and from begging for whatever anyone happened to be eating. Half the time it wasn't even something Cavall wanted to eat, he just hated feeling left out.

Sean heard Jackson call out when he arrived, but he stayed where he was, sipping at his beer in one of the patio chairs. As soon as Nathan had jumped up to go greet Jackson, Sean and his father had gone back to swapping grading horror stories. They were always ready with plenty of them--Mom too--but June, and thus the end of the school year, was a particularly ripe time for them.

He was late, as always. It wasn't necessarily his fault, per se. It just kind of... Happened. He got so absorbed in his work that he completely lost track of time. When he happened to glance towards the corner of his screen, he groaned quietly. The work he was doing now was mostly voluntary. He spent several hours at the office, doing absolutely nothing but research, research, research.

It wasn't the easiest of lives, not really, but it was his life. He took off his lab coat and draped it haphazardly over his arm, darting around the laboratory to collect his things. When he was even remotely satisfied, he grudgingly saved his work and powered down his computer. He missed work already and part of him dreaded this little rendezvous. Still, he made sure to swing by the sitter's to pick up Craig. After making sure the boy was securely buckled in the back, he got back into the driver's side and drove the remainder of the way to where they were meeting. After arriving, he got out and carefully unbuckled Craig before helping him out of the car.

Holding the boy's hand, he made his way into the house, only seconds behind Jackson. "Hey." He said cheerily, trying to mask everything he was feeling. His brother's partnership dredged up unpleasantness. He couldn't imagine how his brother, Sean, was doing. If he was mourning the loss of his pregnant wife, that meant Sean was probably going through something similar... Shaking the thought off as best as he could manage, he made his way to the patio. Craig trailed along behind him, practically clinging to his father's pant leg.

Jackson grinned as Nathan came over immediately for their usual tight embrace. "Hey Nathan! Long time no see!" he said with a chuckle. He was probably the closest with Nathan out of his brothers but he tied that into them causing a lot of ruckus together as they grew up while his other brothers had matured slightly sooner than him and Nathan.

It wasn't long before the whole crew had arrived with Nolan arriving just moments after Jackson. The scene brought a big smile to Jackson's face as he made his way to the patio with everyone, being sure to grab a drink before actually going outside. Happy memories flooded his thoughts as he sat down while they made small talk. When would be a good time to announce his good news?

The more he thought about it though the harder it became to figure out when would be the right opportunity so, without further ado, he'd share his good news, after all, it was pretty much exploding out of him anyways. "So everyone!" he said in a louder voice to ensure he caught his family's attention, "I've got some good news, I've finally been partnered!" he said with a laugh. "I know some of you thought it would never happen but as it turns out, even I can get a partner."

"Too long, man!", Nathan replied with the same excitement as always. Growing up Jackson was probably the one he'd spend the most time with, but lately they hadn't seen each other as much as Nathan would like. They were busy, and with Nathan's partnership he had just been preoccupied with getting life sorted out. Hopefully they could start hanging out again when the world went back to normal - even if it was going to be a different normal.

Nathan threw a bright smile at Nolan when he arrived, but opted for a clap on his shoulder rather than a hug. He followed his brothers outside and settled back in the chair he had occupied before they arrived, falling back into small talk with their mother about his life with Lili. Lisbeth had been very invested since they found out Nathan would be getting married, and he did his best to humor her. It was actually sort of nice to discuss their daily life with her, her responses made him feel like they were on the right track. But he was pulled out of the conversation when Jackson's voice cut through and drew his attention.

"Would you look at that! Miracles do happen after all", Nathan replied to his brother's news with a lighthearted chuckle.

Sean knew that Nolan and Craig had arrived because Cavall lifted his head just before they stepped out onto the porch. The dog clambered to his feet and trotted over to the little boy, nosing gently at him to try to get Craig to laugh or, better yet, pet him. Cavall loved people of all ages, but he got especially excited around kids. Sean had gotten permission from his principal more than once to bring Cavall in as a treat for the kids, especially around SAT and AP exam time. It helped reduce his students' stress levels and Cavall loved it so much he nearly wagged his tail off every time.

When Jennifer had been pregnant, Cavall would snuggle up against her belly whenever he got the chance, like he knew his little brother was growing in there. Kai had never come home from the hospital in the short two months of his life, and it always felt like Cavall had known something was wrong. After Kai died and Jennifer was removed, Cavall had done his best to comfort Sean, rarely leaving his side, but Sean sensed that Cavall had been grieving too. Now Cavall was still extraordinarily attached to Sean, but he'd quickly gotten used to their new house and to having Kitty around. The second either of their alarms went off in the morning, Cavall was up on the bed and licking their faces, eager for them all to start the day together.

He was aware of the arrivals and the movements of the people around him, but Sean didn't break off his conversation with his dad until Jackson raised his voice and got their attention. Sean laughed a little at Jackson's exaggeration--he was only 22, that was hardly early enough to start worrying that he'd never get partnered. Still, Sean was happy for Jackson; it was an exciting new chapter of his life. "Congrats! Who's the lucky woman? Anyone we know?" Between the seven Jones boys and both their parents, they knew a hell of a lot of people, if only in passing.

He eased down onto the floor and stretched his arms above his head. Craig, meanwhile, was latching onto Sean's dog, giggling quietly. "Dad, why couldn't we bring Kujo?" Craig's soft voice brought Nolan out of his wayward thoughts and he frowned thoughtfully, trying to contemplate a proper response to his son's query that wouldn't involve swearing. What he wanted to say was that his dog - his son's best friend - was an asshole. Instead, he said the following, hoping Craig's inquisitive nature wouldn't convince him it was a good time to ask another question. It took him a moment to speak, even though he had his answer.

Really, all he was trying to do was make sure he didn't come off as agitated. "Kujo needs rest, kiddo." Was he projecting again? Probably... Ah well, it wasn't important. His home in Round Lake Heights was starting to feel rather lonely, even with his son and their dog to keep him company. "Congratulations, Jackson." He piped up, albeit a bit late.

He had suspected the news because why else would Jackson gather up the family? Well, he supposed it could be for an intervention for him... But he doubted his siblings knew just how fucked in the head he actually was. He liked to think he did a good job of hiding it, but what if he didn't? No use dwelling on it, he supposed. He settled his gaze on Craig, watching him with rapt attention. Honestly, he was amazed his son was okay at all. Nolan seemed well put together, but he was barely holding shit together.
