[Have an Arkady! She is meditating hard and is completely radiating calm, peace and the sort of spiritually tinged happiness maintaned by someone who has faith that Things Will Eventually Turn Out Right. She doesn't say anything; just sits there being a beacon for people to focus on who are getting too overwhelmed.]

[For those who can see it, her aura is of course mostly light purple, but with a lot of gold (spirituality), orange (happiness) and hope (platinum) shimmering in there.

[Private to Dr. House]
Say the word and I'll set you up in the CES with a tent, a book and some Irish Coffee.

[House doesn't see auras but he can feel her emotions. Normally all that happiness would annoy the crap out of him but for now it's a not unwelcome respite from the emo deluge.]

Seems simpler to just club everyone into unconsciousness.

Guilt is not an issue for me. [Not that he'll admit to. Guilt is one of those pesky emotions best ignored.]

Fine. [He reaches for his cane] But I don't see how there's any advantage to be gained.

Only if you let it.

Not much of a gift. Reading thoughts would be helpful. Emotions are useless. [Have a suspicious look--why would anyone invite him into their mind?] What's the catch?

If you know what you're looking for, you can discern a person's emotions from their body language. You don't need to be drowned in them. [Which is him actually sort of agreeing with Arkady.]

Can you do a two person teleport? Because I'm not leaving my cabin any other way. If someone starts giving me their mind cooties again, I can't be held responsible for my actions. [He's just going to igore everything else you said because trust, what is that?

Also, he's going to glare in response to your amusement.]

[He sees that mental eyeroll...in a manner of speaking.]

Fabulous. I'll be waiting.

It can't be more disorienting than suddenly being consumed by someone else's emotions.

[He doesn't want anything to do with telepathy but the ability to teleport would be totally cool, especially for a guy with a bad leg.]

What do I need to do?

[He plants his cane on the ground until the brief sense of disorientation passes. Then he looks around at her furniture.]

That's a different take on interior decorating.

So it is. [He moves over to the couch and, looking somewhat awkward, sits.]

Honestly, I don't spend a lot of time using outdoor furniture. Don't really spend a lot of time outdoors at all.

I like my comfort. [And living in ruins would make his exterior world too much like his interior world.]

It's your party; you can do what you want. [He shifts, looking ill at ease.] Wait, okay--I have a question. How long did it take to graduate your last inmate?

And who decides when an inmate is ready to graduate--the warden or the Admiral?

It's bitter because it's laced with cyanide.

[yeah, he's prone to be overly dramatic. And that working against himself? That's one of his favorite hobbies.]

So far everyone else gets what they want: the Admiral gets to play god, you get to save your planet and everyone else gets to be free of dealing with me. If you know anything about me, you know that making other people happy isn't high on my list of priorities so the big question from my perspective is what do I get out of it?

telepathy?

[Another practiced telepath, hm?

Joshua debates with himself before even reaching out to her. It'll reveal his powers, what he is at least and edge of what he is, depending on her strength - and most of the wardens don't even seem to be aware of that. Either they don't bother looking at the information for new inmates, or they're not allowed to look at his information. Anyone who knows anything more about him than the image he casually projects is a risk.

But he's bored, and restless. He misses Mr. H, who knew him well enough it was almost like he was completely understood, which he's always known and insisted is impossible.

So. It's not kind, but it's a response: he jabs at Arkady. It's not meant to be an attack, or even cause serious harm or discomfort - it's like the tap of a rubber hammer against a knee, testing. Joshua's mental presence is all silver and constrained, control, control, control.

Just curious, Arkady.]

telepathy for... now!

[What a puppy. He wasn't expecting quite that happy a response to being kicked, even if it wasn't hard.

He'd be so much stronger if he wasn't hampered by the Admiral and the Barge. He is a semigod if not a demigod, after all. But his control, at least, is still impeccable.]


What an eager beaver. Hello there.

[He pushes back at her a bit. He's a private sort; the kind to keep people at arms' length, to his detriment but increased probability of survival. Not that he's bland, just subtle: there's striated overtones of dusky pink where he actually does care about things and blue where he has real feelings in there somewhere.]

I'm thrilled to have alleviated your solitude, in that case. How many of 'us' are floating around hereabouts anyway?

From: [personal profile] zeitgeists
[Good heavens. He can see this is going to get sigh-worthy if she keeps up talking to him, but... it's refreshing to converse mind to mind again. Enough to make him keep at it, at least.]

And to whom do I owe the pleasure now, hmm?

[A bit more comfortable with that, he lets her rest there, not pushing to get her farther away or drawing her in. He's not comfortable even with close mental touch, this one.]

Where are you from, Arkady?

[How perturbing. It doesn't look like anywhere that's on his earth - unless you discount natural disasters - and he's never been to London, but he hopes Shibuya never looks like that. Speaking of Shibuya, images pass back alone: the high-rises, chain stores and boutiques, full of stylish people crossing this way and that on their own errands. Glass and steel and splashes of color and a studiously polished, hip image to it all. Ah, Shibuya.]

Whatever happened there? Is your whole world like that?

Date: 2012-04-24 08:26 am (UTC)
zeitgeists: (near miss.)
From: [personal profile] zeitgeists
It certainly can be. [Everything in response to Shibuya is a shifting morass of uncertain feels. There's real true love for his district, possessiveness, bitterness and nostalgia before he pulls it back.] It can be many things! Anyhow, what happened with your country? [He just asks it so baldly.]

zeitgeists: (like a whisper.)
From: [personal profile] zeitgeists
[Ah, how sad... it's beautiful to him though, Arkady. That kind of sadness born out of love for a place, out of a wish for a bad thing not to have happened. Just, appreciation right back.]

Did many people die?

[It's easy to appreciate feelings when you don't have any, or hardly any.]

But humanity fights on! Well, good for you. How long ago was it?

Who's that we, then? [A distant arms-length kind of approval; Joshua rests his eye kindly on what you are about. What a condescending tool.

It's genuine though at least.]

[He feels just dandy about himself really. He is a tool though.

Studying that image, and - well. That's all he's got for now really. Just gonna remember it.]


Thank you for being so forthcoming, dear.
