Tess is caught a little off guard when she enters Milliways today. She's just come from bo practice and isn't expecting to be brought into the bar.

No matter. She'll take her bo staff and grab a cup of coffee before settling on a couch, feet up, and attempt to do this thing called 'relaxing'.

Brotherly love is a beautiful thing. Brotherly love, reconciliation. Forgiveness.*

And an enormous platter of food.

Look, Loki isn't sure how long it's been since he last ate, but it's somewhere in the order of months. That's not enough to kill him--though he's happy to let Thor think he's arrived as one of Milliways' dead--but it's enough that once Thor steers him to a seat and orders a meal for them both, he's going to down a phenomenal amount of food. Enough that it would make the most solicitous grandmother proud, if there were a grandmother around to see.

It's all a little too methodical and determined to call feasting. But Loki's not so single-minded that he can't keep a watch on the sights and sounds of Milliways, particularly in the intervals when Thor is off consulting with Bar or ordering more food.

*Actual levels of brotherly love, forgiveness, and reconciliation may be open to debate. Possibly violent debate once Thor and Loki get to talking.

((Not a joint post because Thor-mun is pretty busy for the next day or so, but Thor might be able to drop into some threads.

Bedtime for now but feel free to tag in--I'll get back to you in the morning!))

If people want to leave comments for the FKO hotel -- regarding the hall lighting, for example -- it can be done at http://www.torontoairportwesthotel.com/contact-us/guest-feedback .  Getting your word in now (politely!) may mean that we won't have to see it next year.

Reblog if it's okay for your followers to leave you a comment telling you what the one thing is they remember you for as a writer. Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line? Is it something like style or characterization? Is it that one weird kink they never thought they’d be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

I mean, unless my particular history obsessions also turn your crank, I doubt the last one applies, but who am I to kink-shame? *doubles down on the hot steamy neofunctionalist European Union fanfiction action for the people in the back*

(Anon comments are fine, if you don't want to fly your kink flag so publicly. ^_^)

A house full of ghosts is no place to fall in love.

Malcolm Carmichael has been coping with his post-war trauma by taking lovers, teaching art to schoolboys, and trying to ignore the ghosts he sees everywhere. At the death of his mother, he realizes he wants more than just to coast on by, and leaves the exclusive school in search of something more.

Caleb Thibodeaux was so traumatized by the death of his parents in a fire that he hasn't spoken a word since. His uncle Noel hires Malcolm to be his tutor, and Malcolm discovers that Caleb is not the only Thibodeaux son with secrets. The plantation house Fidele is beautiful but haunted, and Noel is much the same.

Soon Malcolm is absorbed in protecting Caleb and Noel from threats both living and dead, and in uncovering the story of Fidele.

Some days, the shadows of her past are closer to the surface than others. That's why Ibani gave up on sleep at 4 in the morning and went outside to train with her wooden practice blade. The sun is up now, but she's back at her training after a brief rest. The motions of the lightsaber forms are a kind of moving meditation for her, and proper practice never hurts.

Even so, she'd be glad of company that wants to talk, observe, or maybe even spar!

Sitting in a booth today: Some textbooks.


Oh, wait, no, hang on, there's a young man there, as well, with a laptop.

He's mostly obscured by books: Textbooks for nearly every subject possible, cookbooks, a few heavy tomes on high-level programming ideas that he doesn't really understand at all, a few local travel books about the wider Tokyo area.

Yamato himself doesn't look like he's slept in a while. This is fine, because he has a full mug of very strong coffee, the scent of which is probably carrying halfway across bar, and that is a viable replacement for sleep.

Springtime multi-pup post

Spring has fully sprung, the cherry blossoms have been and gone, and the season is making some people rather frisky and restless. This state of nervous energy has different ways of expressing itself, in different people.
  • Dr. Hannibal Lecter is in the Caribbean inlet, swimming laps -- he seems to have marked out two landmarks on the shore, and swims back and forth, parallel to the beach, in flawless form, just as if he was in a pool.
  • Ragnar Lothbrok is riding his motorcycle around the lake. He's going very fast and making it roar, which is fun.
  • Father Pearse Harman is in the bar, has thrown open the windows closest to the piano, and is playing and singing old Ivor Novello songs with a good voice and not much inhibition.
  • Alex Vause has taken a punching bag outside, has hung it in a tree near the sparring grounds, and proceeds to beat the living daylights out of the poor thing.
  • And finally, Teja's three forge cats (Myrrh having defected to stay with Bodhi) are chasing each other all through the bar, outside through the garden, jumping in through the windows Harman left open and up a pillar into the rafters, in an obstacle race all around the chairs and table, out again through the back door between the feet of some poor bewildered patron, all the way down to the forge, and up again, weaving among the late tulips and hyacinths and in through the kitchen door, where the rats scatter and scold. And on into the bar once again... They seem indefatigable. Teja, in the meanwhile, is sitting by the backdoor, teaching little Egil to fletch arrows.

The situation on the beach has not been improving. When the door opened up to the bar, Mark and Dodger took only the briefest moment to consider their options before leaving Dave to fend for himself. It wasn't a tough decision to make, since he didn't seem to be moving at all when they glanced back at him.

Now, they're both in the library, trying to find the exact nature of the monster that won't leave the the lifeguard shack alone. There must be something that can kill it. Or at least bother it enough to make it go away.

They're not coming up with much in the way of helpful information though, if only because there's so much information to go through. Who knew there were so many kinds of deadly monsters in the universe?

I am sore from gardening yesterday so today's topic comes from [personal profile] ceitfianna (as given in the DE Suggestion box).

An old favorite but what's your type of pup? What kinds of characters are you drawn to? Are there some types you love but don't work for RP or aren't easy for you to make work?

Write your own thoughts and then others can tag you and tell you what they consider your type. Or make this a tagging in one where you list your pups and others tell you what they think is your kind of pup.

Jay has a new bike to run in. A new old bike as it were. Ether way, the reconditioned engine needs running in.

He speeds around the mountain track, leaning far enough into the corners to scuff the armoured knees of his leathers.

Never quite happy, he brings the bike to a halt down by the lake, sitting on a rock to tune and retune the pistons.

Company would be welcome.

Noriko comes into the bar in a breezy, fluttering tank top and a pair of skinny jeans, quiet for once as she collects a small tea tray from the bar and retreats to the couch; she tucks her legs up and stares at the slate-gray and gold cup, carefully placing a sugary, salty preserved flower in the bottom. Brewing the tea has already been taken care of and she watches it go from clear, faint green to cloudy as the petals unfurl.

Looking around the bar requires remembering things she in't sure how to feel about yet, and the constancy of confusion gives her a headache. On a separate saucer, there are two panda-shaped and -decorated tea cakes, which she pushes away, facing them towards the wall.

There might be signs of some distress to handle.

Bonnie pins a notice on the board when she comes into the bar this evening.

'All participants in the Easter Portrait Photography Challenge please submit your scores here!'

She then settles down near the fire, with some knitting. She unravels one of her own knitted sweaters first, winding the wool back into a ball, then proceeds to re-knit the wool to fit a smaller person.

Curled up in a corner of the infirmary is Bodhi Rook. Pale and miserable but alive, and watched over by a little black cat.

As bad as he feels, company is most welcome.

Saving/improving someone's life via blood transfusion would not be possible without medical... science. :D

So yes. Blood donation successful! Slowly but surely working my way toward my 4-gallon pin, 56 days at a time. :) If doing every darn thing I can in the week preceding an appointment to make sure my iron passes muster is what it takes, and evidently that's the case lately, then that's what it takes. It is entirely worth it.

Donating blood on Earth Day seems right, somehow. I can't entirely articulate that one as yet, but it does.

No one has yet recognized my Franklin (as opposed to Watson and Crick, the thieves) shirt for the reference it is, alas. Wearing it today feels like a tiny dual victory just the same.

This is a very disjointed post. :)
