gutpunching: (put on your war paint)

@red. does this here b/c I'm late.

[Jason's still not a big fan of carrying around a magical wire. But he's been following the recent network chatter quietly. Keeping current, looking for anything of particular note. Which is why shortly after North chimes in here, he gets a private ping looking for some elaboration.

Because boy, that conversation sure sounds familiar. But he was pretty sure he'd been eavesdropping solo.

You got a where & when on this argument?

[Might have been more than one. Might not. (He hasn't forgotten the fishy circumstances, either.)]

[Calm down, grandpa, it's just a text message. Here's another.]

East side or West? Indoors?

[Casually ignoring that last question because who needs to know.]

It's a big temple.

[Just trying to put a finger on it. He waits out the three minutes until North begrudgingly answers. He can play a long game here, bud. Obliquely—]

Saw something similar around the same time and place.

Sounds like it might be in our best interests to figure out if it was an isolated incident or not.

[Among, y'know, other things.]

I don't remember bringing company.

[So you tell him, bud.]

[Don't sound so happy about this, North, this probably doesn't even qualify for a "a nice to meet you..." By all rights, multiple incidents ought to make more sense from Jason's perspective. So.]

why do you say that?

[It's not a suspicion he hasn't be harboring—even if he's not so clear on the details just yet. Which is why he's fishing.]

[U tried, Santa. Time to get a little more direct.]

Well, unless you're secretly three foot and furry I think you might be mistaken.

[It had been a pretty empty hall, hadn't it.]

[Thank you for joining us in the Real World, Santa. He's since made this conclusion, but a little confirmation is good to hear. Leading North around to explain himself is generally more productive than making demands. With a measured amount of skepticism—]

You'll have to teach me that one.

[He's actually usually pretty good at that kind of thing already. But he's almost positive he would have caught on to another set of eavesdropping ears. So what is it? (Magic is an answer he doesn't like, because it tends to be messy. It's more common here than ever.)]
