[There's no convenient recording left for anyone trying to contact Zelos -- yet. Someone couldn't be bothered setting it up.]

[About a day after this, having personally heard nothing from Zelos, Raine makes the effort to get in contact with him.]

['Are you all right' strikes her as a foolish question, given the context and the person in question. Raine leads with something different.]


Shall I tell you the details, of how we defeated Mithos?

[It works, doesn't it? Zelos has figured out what she meant, after all, and there hasn't been any extraneous time taken up re-hashing what they don't need to.]

Let me see... he succeeded, temporarily, in resurrecting Martel through Colette, but she refused.

The denial by his sister, however, seemed to break Mithos further, and so that was where we fought.

...You were with us, by that point. Many of us had fallen into traps in Derris-Kharlan, along the way to try to reach Colette; you and Kratos together saved us all.

[Herself included. Raine knows Zelos won't be happy to hear of Kratos's inclusion; but it's important, after all, and perhaps it will be helpful to know that Kratos was there too. Concretely helping.]
ruinsprofessor: (i see)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-02-14 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
Colette seems to be fine, and it's been a little while since that fight.

And Martel... wound up somewhere else entirely. She left Colette's body of her own choice. She'd been awake all that time, she said-- unable to do anything but watch Mithos.

[Four thousand years. Raine can barely fathom Martel's existence.]

The fight was... difficult, but not impossible. In the end, all that was left was Mithos's Cruxis crystal.

...At least, at first.

["That's, uh." Yes. That about sums it up.]

[...and then Raine has to shake her head.]


Genis wanted to keep it. It seemed dormant; we didn't realize Mithos would be able to move it.

[It was a crystal. That shouldn't have been possible, or so she thought.]

We made the pact with Origin, and then he possessed Genis, taking him to Derris-Kharlan. I believe I mentioned something of the sort earlier. So it was necessary for us all to pursue him, and there was one more battle to be fought.

...I wasn't with you, but in Derris-Kharlan that time, all of us faced certain images of our pasts, preying on our weaknesses. I'm told you surmounted yours.

[Hey. Hey. Good thing that wasn't in your outside voice, Zelos.]

No, that's more or less how it happened. We fought Mithos once more; Lloyd shattered his Cruxis crystal, and then Lloyd reunited the worlds and germinated the Seed. With Colette's help.

[Raine hears that bitterness, Zelos. She gives him a flat look.]

If you try to say it could have been done without you, I can guarantee you won't like the results.
ruinsprofessor: (--uh?)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-02-26 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[Raine flushes slightly. She's been working on that, she swears.]

I can be more inventive than that about punishments.

[But it is better, and she relaxes, offering him a tiny smile in return.]

Yes, that is better. And entirely accurate, as it happens.

[And Zelos should remember how much she doesn't overstate things that don't have to do with ruins.]

[Rosyn is smiling not-quite-slyly.]

Hello, dear. I believe I left our last conversation unfinished - shall we remedy that?
ironcircle: (CHEYM - smile)

[personal profile] ironcircle 2017-03-11 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Good afternoon, Mr. Wilder - forgive the formalities, it's hard to tell how each of the Foreigners prefers to be addressed without getting to know you better.

[The kedan looks a little weather-beaten, and he's smiling almost self-deprecatingly.]

My name is Cheym; I work with other kedan outside the city on agriculture, among other things. Since you haven't been here long, welcome to Keeliai.
veinediron: (Laughter)

[personal profile] veinediron 2017-03-14 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Rosyn laughs quietly.]

You seem to have learned the lesson that flattery will get you everywhere, Zelos. And yes, that is my name. How are you finding Keeliai? Keeping busy?
ruinsprofessor: (it can't be helped)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-03-14 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Seeing as he seems to be making a change in his demeanor, Raine lets the first bit slide.]

You acquit yourself admirably in the fighting too, naturally, if that makes any difference.

[It's a genuine compliment.]
ironcircle: (CHEYM - neutral)

[personal profile] ironcircle 2017-03-14 04:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Zelos, [the kedan says with a nod.]

I'm speaking to a number of Foreigners, but not the entire roster. Some, like yourself, do indeed merit special attention for one reason or another.
ironcircle: (CHEYM - smile)

[personal profile] ironcircle 2017-03-18 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[Is he-- is he flirting?

Well. That's interesting.]


Oh, I've no concerns about your discretion, Zelos. Let them talk. [Just because he can, Cheym winks.] You're new here, which means the kedan don't know you as well. Those of us that work outside the city get less information on the Foreigners in general, but it's worth getting to know you a bit better.
ruinsprofessor: (aha!)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-03-18 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[Be touched. That's her professional recommendation.]

There aren't many people who are ahead of Genis in math. It's an accomplishment to be proud of.
veinediron: (Wouldn't you like to know)

[personal profile] veinediron 2017-03-18 10:33 pm (UTC)(link)
A sense of scale is important, [Rosyn agrees, amused.] But bigger is not always better.

[It's nice to find a Foreigner who isn't so uncomfortable with Rosyn's usual style of banter and her profession. Delightful.]

That depends on what you mean by lonely. I am hardly ever alone, which is actually something of a pity. It does make certain intimacies difficult to entertain. [Also she's many times Zelos' age, so the prospect of his company is hilarious.] I wouldn't say no if you had the time.
ruinsprofessor: (discontent)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-03-22 10:55 pm (UTC)(link)
[--Raine presses her mouth into a flat line for a few moments.]

You missed him by about a year and a half.
veinediron: (Smile)

[personal profile] veinediron 2017-03-22 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
I've more than enough space at the Lantern, depending on your interests. [Rosyn is quiet for a moment before she laughs brightly.] You've had quite a lot of experience charming people, haven't you?
ironcircle: (CHEYM - neutral)

[personal profile] ironcircle 2017-03-22 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
The ebb and flow of politics in Keeliai is always changing. It's worth making as many friends and allies as one can, in case things shift in an unpleasant direction.

[Cheym shrugs mildly.]

Foreigners are special, in point of fact. And while not all the kedan appreciate your presence here, ignoring or demeaning Foreigners is far less productive than attempting to work with them.
veinediron: (Listening)

[personal profile] veinediron 2017-05-04 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
Can it not be both? Such talent shouldn't be wasted on any one thing.
ruinsprofessor: (focus down)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-05-06 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
Yes.

[Raine nods shortly.]

But he knew Solomon; and, after some initial tension, they seemed to... get along. Genis taught Solomon to cook.
ruinsprofessor: (dissatisfaction)

[personal profile] ruinsprofessor 2017-05-08 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Raine raises an eyebrow at him. That's an odd reaction. Getting along with Genis rapidly isn't at all a usual thing, after all.]

[That lasts about three seconds before she scowls.]


We weren't without recourse. We were living in the Midnight Hotel at the time; the proprietor often cooked himself, but regardless usually there were meals provided.
veinediron: (Amused)

[personal profile] veinediron 2017-05-13 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I didn't specify that there was a need to charm someone just this instant, but the future is an uncertain, petulant thing.
veinediron: (Wouldn't you like to know)

Name a price, and I'll tell you if it can be paid.
