of the cluster of palm trees. There should be someone there with ointment that'll help disinfect the cut.

[Somehow she replaced the username with the message she was typing. The network literally doesn't even work like this but you know what we're gonna make this happen.]

[EH it's magic jewelry, we'll roll with it!!! Surely even magic must backfire every now and then....

Give Riza a second to stare at this reply she was definitely not expecting, another second to try and read through her old messages, and then another few seconds to apologize profusely.]

I apologize, I meant to send this message to someone else. I'm Riza Hawkeye, another one of ALASTAIR's recruits. There's a deer in need of assistance and I was hoping a friend could retrieve some ointment for me.

["No biggie." What is it with you people and your bizarre slang? Regardless, they both have more important matters at hand to hammer out.]

Near the rockiest part of the beach. He got into a scuffle with one of the crabs.

The literal radio silence on the other end after she sends her reply message -
Yes, why do you ask? - has her shaking her head in exasperation before she resumes her task of trying to patch up her wounded deer patient. It's not exactly a laborious process but it is one hindered by lack of supplies. The abundance of Gift previously had outweighed any real need to stock up on healing supplies.

Speaking of healing supplies soon as she finishes washing out the wound, a low clunk catches her attention. Rolling towards her is a tube, leaving behind a wad of bandages in its wake. It's with slow movements that she picks it up and untwists the cap, to discover some of the very same ointment she'd been talking about earlier.

Next to her, the deer is staring wide-eyed at a spot ten some feet away.]

[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.]
gutpunching: (15)

[personal profile] gutpunching 2016-04-17 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
I don't remember bringing company.

[So you tell him, bud.]

[personal profile] gutpunching 2016-04-18 09:38 am (UTC)(link)
[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.)]

[ To say Lancer's read everything on the network is... well, close to the mark, but still generous. Skimmed, mulled, thought it over. Formed an opinion and picked a stance.

But admitting to thinking!! Unacceptable. Time for some counsel. ]

yo. you still alive, or did you die while everyone was talking?
riastraid: (73)

nah what's the fun in that

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
[ North's in the very same boat as him then—spirit turned mortal again (maybe slightly different shades of mortal, but still). Perfect. ]

hah. well, you know me.

[ Real answer: not recklessly, but yes. ]

what do you make of things, north?
riastraid: (88)

casual existential dread with santa

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
[ Hitting things is way easier than resolving issues with words anyway, lbr. ]

i guess that depends on what you wanna call saving.
riastraid: (134)

spoken like a true hipster edgelord

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
[ The feeling is entirely too mutual. Idle chatter though—now there's a good use of time. ]

nah. i just don't expect to save an entire world.
riastraid: ignore all the numbering (001)

yeah your splash page navi is very convincing

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[ Slacking on his present-crafting duties, for shame.

Also this is not what he wanted, don't turn this on him, North. ]

i'm not gonna lose any sleep killing these goddesses, but we all know someone's gonna get screwed over no matter what we do. or don't do.

[ Whether it's the gods themselves, the planet itself, Pomarr, the Nalawi... ]

kinda silly to think of that as 'saving' right?
riastraid: (69)

look at my layout and call it hipster

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
[ At least Lancer knows that much. Good, bad... it's mostly perspective. They'll just do what they have to, and consequences will be consequences.

Either way, a good turning point. ]

so does that mean you're going along with it?
riastraid: (115)

fine you're tasteless trash and you listen to kpop because you're an abomination!!!!! is that better

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ There's that. But he's not really the type to wait around for an ideal solution, and there's the genocide besides.

And that's all very heavy. He has North's answer—or enough to piece it together—so... ]

you ever duke it out with one before?

[ It's true, why does this keep happening, why can't they just go back to the halcyon days of punching sharks and laughing about it.

Anyway, he's usually kind of sparse on the details, but what the hey. ]

a goddess of death. i'd trade you.

[ morrigan and 7 lava giants in exchange for the boogeyman, it's a deal.

there's a slight pause where lancer makes a face at the memory. ]

it was a good fight, but she'd always kinda creeped around me... should've chased her off earlier.

but i don't think i'd stand a chance as i am now.
riastraid: (84)

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[ no it's too late, enjoy the violence ]

you tell me, claws -- why do you think a goddess of death and war follows anyone around?

[ spoilers: it's because he's awesome at it. ]

don't count yourself out, you're pretty handy with the swashbuckling. maybe if we try our very best we'll turn out juuuust fine.
riastraid: (bw18)

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
she did call it love... well, either way, i wasn't interested. [ in her promise of victory, war, or affection. ]

you must've broken a few hearts yourself, eh? once upon a time?

[ and it's okay, they can be bad at idioms together. flying livestock!!! all equally ridiculous, who can keep it straight. he senses nothing wrong with this. ]

oh come on, we'll never know until we try :) [ that is to say they'll probably die!! horribly :) :) :) ]
