A campfire headcanon

While fires themselves might not be super popular in the zones (dracs might follow the smoke) I feel like campfire “culture” would be a big thing in the zones.

-Groups of ‘joys hanging out together, some bring blankets while one might bring a guitar while they all sing songs, just enjoying themselves and the company.

-From songs about the Pheonix witch to the latest mad gear and Missle kid songs, they use any material, and belt it out loud.

-Younger 'joys sitting in a smaller circle near the others, swapping scary stories, or bragging about their blaster that someone let them have. Stories about Destroya, Dracs, and what BLI would do to you if they did catch you.

-If not a fire, maybe an electric heater? Imagine some chip head dragging an extension cord from some random outlet that still has power, and going through all that trouble just to let people warm their hands in the cold desert night

-Killjoys swapping gossip about this and that, from rumors about the Fab Four, to the urban legend equivalent of the zones.

-“Bonfires” Would be a great way to recruit new 'joys to your gang, showing them how life with them can really be a plus one. Not necessarily in a malicious way, but just a friendly introduction, as opposed to meeting in a firefight.

-Just the idea of gathering and keeping eachother company seems so welcoming. Being too lonely in the desert is terrifying, and having fun with friends, wether you know them well or not, always makes things seem easier to take on.

iN ADDITION, THESE GANG SIGNS, WILL IN FACT, GET YOU SHOT. DO NOT PERFORM THESE GESTURES IN PUBLIC.

“The most dangerous gang in town is the police department, and the real source of organized crime is the government itself. Understand that alone, and you will *overstand that the entire crime fighting campaign of the government is a complete fraud, and a cover for racism and political domination.”
