back toward the end of the blackout event...

[so here's the thing about mysteriously thick, perpetual darkness; yugioh fairies are negatively effected by and just plain do not like it. And thanks to the medieval dueling style, Harriet has about twenty of those buggers resonating inside her soul. Granted, some do better than others, and she's been taking full advantage of Hoshiningen's ability to light the way. It makes them all quieter too. But it takes energy to keep it summoned, and as soon as the light goes out, there's that persistent, gnawing discomfort. It's making it hard to sleep.

It's quite ridiculous, she thinks. She's grown out of being afraid of the dark, for christ's sake...

But in the end, she seeks out the moonlight to pacify that feeling. Harriet can be found on the rooftop with an improvised coffee pot, a novel and one of Henry's candles, although she doesn't seem to be focusing on her reading very well. Actually, she looks like she might be nodding off... and then snaps back awake when her head slams into the book.]


Ugh, damn it-

[she can't afford to fall asleep out here by herself. She's got too many enemies. Stifling a yawn, she pours herself another cup of coffee. She'll need it for staying alert on the walk back to the dorm.]

[Elle had taken to the roof once she finally stumbled her way through the darkness, much to her relief. Outdoors meant she could see and fly. She had been starting to get a little jealous of the humans and their ability to walk long distances with ease. Hopping on clawed bird talons was much more difficult.
But she was free now.

There is a light in the distance that interests her. Stretching out her wings, Elle begins to flap her way towards it. She hopes she doesn't startle whoever has it.]

Um, excuse me, is it all right if I share your light with you?

[personal profile] silentsiren 2013-09-20 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[What, you mean it's not normal for a half-bird, half-woman to fly up to you and ask for company?]

Oh, thank goodness. I spent so long trying to find a way out of that dreadful place. Your light is so comforting. Thank you.

[Deeply relieved, Elle flutters over to the railing, sighing with relief as her talons relax around the bars.]

Sometimes I wish I had feet like yours. It really hurt trying to find my way in that awful school. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm Elle.

Uh, I'm a siren. [She adds hurriedly. This place was so strange, with most of the humans having never heard of sirens before.]

[personal profile] silentsiren 2013-09-20 09:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, thank you. [Elle hops down to Harriet's level for a moment to pour herself some coffee from the thermos. The heady scent from the flowers entwined in her hair and wings follows her as she returns to her perch.

Mm. I haven't had coffee in a long time. There's a cafe in Polpota Harbor run by pengu... er, by former pirates, that serves it, but I don't tend to go out unless I'm with my friends.

[She was about to say 'penguin pirates', but decided against it, as that also seemed to confuse the population of this strange little island. Why was it so hard to understand that penguins could be pirates?]

[There's darker silhouettes out on the horizon of the moonlit night tonight, but fortunately only one and it wasn't an enemy exactly. Pegasus doesn't remember speaking with this particular girl, but she had that look that spoke of the Rose Duelists—the white rose was a dead giveaway on its own.

Pegasus supposed he should have been a little less quiet on the approach as not to frighten her, but his silver hair being reflected from the moon should have been a dead giveaway of his presence.]


It's actually not a bad night to sleep outside, but you know you probably shouldn't do so alone.

[Where could her companions have gone?]

Er, well...Who's Margaret exactly?

[He cleared his throat and shuffled a little, realizing that she had probably mistaken him—yes, indeed evidenced by her tired demeanor he could safely say she'd easily mistaken him for this Stanley he keeps hearing all about.

Still, Margaret...The name didn't seem familiar. Henry would've mentioned her, wouldn't he have? As far as he knew, he'd only ever said "his mother", and that Stanley was his "father". In any case he waved her words away gently with a hand flourish, not taking offense.]


It's alright. It's happened far too many times for me to ignore, myself. Yes. Pegasus it is. But I don't believe I know the pleasure of your name.

[He offered her his hand, as was customary. He just seemed to be smiling gently down at her, not even bothered by it really.]

[Speaking of enemies, at least of the past variety, Malik just walked through the door to the roof.

He hasn't noticed Harriet yet though, and by the way he just walks over to the edge and sinks down to take a seat, it's obviously he came up here to be alone.

...And to practice.

Malik pulled out his deck and grabbed a few cards, inspecting them in his hands.]

[personal profile] obeytherod 2013-09-20 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Malik set three cards down in front of him and closed his eyes. Three days ago he had come back from the dead...was it that long already? In this place each day felt like an eternity. At least he was starting to grow used to Ryou, even if their acquaintanceship had been a fluctuation between tolerance, friendliness, and borderline abuse.

Things were both more and less understandable with Bakura. It worried him, but he tried not to think about it...

The main thing plaguing him lately were those memories and nightmares, not just of his death, but of the other Malik.

Malik summons three monsters low-level one after the other: Spirit Reaper, Sangan, and Revival Jam.]

[And here's another person coming up to the roof! Karasu doesn't like the unnatural darkness any more than Harriet's fairies, though she has somewhat of a tolerance for it, if just because sleeping outside isn't exactly an option she's liked much.

...Seeing someone else up here is a surprise, especially with her nearly dozing off.]


Are you all right?
moderndaydragon: (And that's why we share)

[personal profile] moderndaydragon 2013-09-20 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Are you sure about that? You actually look pretty... [shitty] Tired. Don't like sleeping in the dark?

I don't think that's how you're supposed to read a book.

[Henry's teasing voice floats over as he takes a sit next to her, a grin on his face. It fades once he actually sees her, replaced by a frown.]

You haven't been sleeping, have you?
helpusduelist: (Default)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-09-21 12:50 am (UTC)(link)
Fairies aren't fond of even natural darkness. I can't imagine what an unnatural one would do.

[He looks at her gently, placing a hand on her shoulder.]

Go ahead and sleep, then. I haven't been up long, so I'll keep watch for you.

You girls never could claim to be ladylike, could you?

[Jack's voice is filled with amusement as he crosses over to sit on the ground beside her. His posture is less hostile than usual, mostly due to the fact that the two of them had basically had to hold the group together for a while until this strange blackness had started.]
dontknowjack: (You know you want this armor)

[personal profile] dontknowjack 2013-09-21 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Heh. I was just amused by the language you two use.

[Outdated, huh? These modern-day types and their loss of anything resembling proper manners... Oh well. He neither could nor would bother to try to fix that.]
