damncompass: holding the compass (damn compass)
Joshua leads Claudia into his (admittedly messy) apartment, kicking some dirty shirts out of the way. "Um, don't mind the mess. Sorry. I didn't know I was going to have company."

There's something about the room that is so typically Joshua.

Once Joshua woke up on Saturday, he decided, a bit worriedly, that he should probably be responsible and see if he even had a job. When he left the bar and went back to his apartment, he hooked up his computer, which immediately popped up a window asking if he wanted to correct the day and time. Confused, Joshua let his computer do whatever it wanted, and he checked out some of his Youtube subscriptions. Nothing new. Checking a few things, Joshua realized that he hadn't lost any time by being in the bar.

Feeling a bit like Scrooge on Christmas morning, he went for a long, very silent, very calm walk through the streets of Geneva. After dinner at his favourite fondue place, he came home, much calmer than he had been in ages. The rest of the evening was devoted to his dissertation.

Sunday, he decided to make and upload another Youtube video (the fine art of mousetrap vehicles, this time, and why they mostly don't work) and spend a bit of time poking at Shinji's desk thingy.

The rest of the week went by fairly normally, work, dissertation, and a bit of research on what he was increasingly certain was an Artifact. Shinji was still conspicuously absent, so he couldn't ask (well, tell really) about keeping the whatever-it-actually-was.

Slowly, however, he started being a bit worried, as Claud wasn't answering her Skype. Finally, Sunday afternoon, he pulled up Expedia to get a ticket to South Dakota. If they wouldn't tell him what was wrong, he'd figure it out himself. Before he actually got the ticket, however, he got up to go to the living room to grab his wallet, and... found Milliways. Oops.

Somewhat to his surprise, when Joshua walked out of Milliways, he walked right into a half-empty office. Everything from his officemate's side had been cleaned out, other than the... almost jackal-looking thing still by his computer. Grabbing a stray grocery bag and sticking the thing in it without paying attention to the music swirling around him, he left his office and knocked on the next door down. "Hey, Georg, are you in there?"

The door opened a crack and a blonde man sticks his head out of the door. "Ja?"

"Have you heard from Shinji lately?" The other man shrugged.

"He got taken away to hospital. Very sick. Stomach flu. Now leave me alone."

"Right, thanks." Even before Joshua could finish his sentence the door was slammed in his face.

Walking back to his apartment, he was easily ignoring the music swirling around him until someone came up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder. "Hey, can you turn your music down? We can hear it all the way down the hall."

"Oh, sorry. I think my phone's malfunctioning. I'm almost to my room, and I can shut it off." He walks faster, down the hall, and into his apartment. Without thinking, he dumped the bag with the jackal on his desk. As it hit the static bags strewn across the desk, a tiny flash jolted Joshua out of his thoughts. Grabbing a pair of gloves from a drawer, he picked up the thing and put it into one of the bags. A rather huge flash came from the bag, making Joshua wince. "Huh. So that's how that works."

Going to his closet, he pulled out a duffle bag and stuffed it full of random clothes, opened the door, thankfully, the bar was beyond.
