01 ♊

[Stepping out of the Chaos Gate is one grey-skinned alien kid. He's looking around curiously now, which is for the better; when he gets out of the glow of the Gate, well--]


[--Too late.]

[He fidgets out of reflex, accidentally dropping the heavy tome previously tucked under his arm. It falls to the cobblestone ground with a soft whump, but he doesn't seem to be very concerned; instead, instinct is telling him to get the hell out of there, because wherever he went, the sun hadn't gone down yet. ...But it only takes a second for him to realize that his skin isn't peeling, his hair isn't burning, his eyes haven't imploded upon themselves; he's alive. He's standing in the sun, and he's alive.]


[Sollux huffs and collects himself, looking back down at the book next to him on the ground; and likewise, at the new outfit he'd somehow gained for himself. Where he had just been was a bizarre, alien place; the spinning ring, the aliens wandering all over the place. And before that, he had squared off with Douchefin McGee. Was this all Eridan's doing? Did he actually succeed for once, with his shitty excuse for magic? Unlikely. Sollux refused to believe it. There was no reason Eridan would want to send him somewhere else, they were in the middle of a duel. You're supposed to fight in a duel! Even if Eridan was a spineless, overgrown grub, Sollux could only assume he knew that much.]

[...Which was all fine and dandy, but it still didn't answer the question of what the fuck just happened. Sigh. Without bothering to pick a direction, Sollux picks up the grimoire and starts walking.]

[She'd seen nothing of the first half of all that, only noticing a hooded figure with a heavy book walking around the city.

He didn't look like he wanted to to bothered, and she wasn't in the mood to bother someone at the moment.]
ladieswhodresslikemen: (i don't like that)

[Oh. Well, if that's the way it is...]

Mac Anu. Part o' "The World", just 'cause some arrogant blowhard couldn't bother to think there's more than one.

[That much she can ignore.]

Apparently. Don't suppose you're lookin' for anyone?
ladieswhodresslikemen: (the usual)

[personal profile] ladieswhodresslikemen 2012-06-18 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
Saw someone like that a couple days ago. Red clothes with big ram horns. Looked like she could barely stand still.
ladieswhodresslikemen: (i don't like that)

'Dunno. Didn't get to talk with her.

The GMs are herding in you trolls like you're sheep. Makes more sense than you think with Aradia's big-ass horns.

[ Ram, sheep, same thing. But Dave wouldn't mistake those horns. Sollux had on different duds like the rest of them, yeah, and there was no doubt he is the alien he thinks he is. Which one, however, proves to be a bit more difficult.

Funny how he's running into them on pure happenstance, too. A MMO has a strange way of working. ]

You're not the crazy clown one, right? Or the wannabe Harry Potter? Give a guy a clue, man, damn.

[Aradia catches a glimpse of Sollux out of the corner of her eye, and before she can really catch herself, she's running in his direction.]

Sollux? Hey!
timeliness: (love comes in colors i can't deny)

[personal profile] timeliness 2012-06-22 03:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[It doesn't take long for her to close the distance between them, smiling the entire time.]

It's me, yeah.
timeliness: (i will keep you anyway)

[personal profile] timeliness 2012-06-22 03:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[There is no resistance in the slightest. Aradia's smiling, meeting him halfway.]

I'm so glad you're okay...and don't worry about me. I'm alive, and I plan to stay that way.
timeliness: (taking over - we're taking over)

It's - well. We should probably sit down for this part.

[She takes his hand, finds a bench, takes a seat.]

A lot of stuff happened, but the important thing is that Derse wound up getting destroyed. And my dream self was sleeping on its quest bed, at its core.

So Derse going poof was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.
timeliness: (could you believe in heaven)

[One that she returns.]

I couldn't exactly control where it wound up. Figures it would go exploring till it found where it needed to be.

When I came back - really came back - it was like I was my old self again.

Can I ask - what's the last thing you remember?

timeliness: (down in the gaze of solemnity)

[Her own smile fades, and she sighs a little.]

I'm from further along from that. The question, then, is whether you want spoilers, or whether you just want to say 'screw it, this is a new place and what happens at home doesn't matter'.
