Demon Marcus, Sunday

You know, all-in-all, Sparkle was actually doing pretty good this week. Sure he still had a tab open in his work browser with a link to that costume design course on it that he hadn't done anything with yet, and sure he was half paranoid about who was going to walk into his shop next, but his week had been pleasant enough, and he'd picked up the biggest, most sugary-sweet disgusting concoction that the Perk would make for him that didn't have pumpkin spice in it. Besides, there were new jackets in for fall that it was entirely possible he was trying on himself before hanging up.

He really liked the yellow one. He wasn't going to get the yellow one, but he really liked it.

[OOC: Open, but for slooooowplay. This is day three of the convention I'm tabling at and I can almost see through time at this point.]

Seivarden had told Hannibal that she would consider apologizing to Sparkle (What kind of name was that, really?), and although she had found another place to stay (albeit with someone who drank blood), she still wanted the medication that Hannibal was giving her. They made things at least a little bit endurable, or would have if the island wasn't such a horrible place.

Also, Seivarden assumed that Hannibal and Jono had some kind of status here, considering the house they lived in, although the social hierarchy on the island was hard to understand.

So, here she was, entering the shop, not exactly looking forward to what she had to do.

Seivarden did look at Sparkle this time and inclined her head slightly, although very calculatedly not more than required.

"Good morning," she greeted, "Sparkle."

She offered a tiny smile, for the sake of politeness.

"Hannibal Lecter mentioned that there seemed to have been a misunderstanding during my last visit."

Not using that word, but still.

It was really tempting to make clear här true opinion on the matter, although politely expressed, but that would defeat the purpose of coming here today.

"Cultural differences," Seivarden replied. "From what I understand I misinterpreted you."

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
Why were you making this so difficult, Sparkle?

"I took your disinterest in assisting me as a sign of rudeness," Seivarden replied, unable to conceal her growing irritation.

"As I've said, I've been told the assumption was wrong."

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
"Well," Seivarden said, "From where I'm standing not moving away from a screen when a customer enters a shop counts as pretty fucking rude. Which is why I'm suggesting there has been a misunderstanding.

She actually tried to tone down the sarcasm.

"Of course, I should have shouted apologies from the street."

Seivarden was now doubting she would ever get to the apology part.

"And quite frankly, I fail to see how anything I did could be interpretated as you describe it, so I'm going to put that down to cultural differences too."

Although Sparkle was the first person reacting this way.

Seivarden was beginning to give up.

"Aatr's tits, yours was the first shop I walked into on this island, and I end up having to deal with you. No, I did not intend to insult you, yes, I came here intending to apologize because a family member of yours told me it was appropriate."

She paused.

"I... Just...Why do you fucking care enough to make this a problem?"

Not that Seivarden wouldn't harbour a grudge, but she was att least prepared to apologize.
1000yearstoolate: (Default)

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 02:01 am (UTC)(link)
"I never intended to give that impression."

Which was sort of true. It wasn't Demon Marcus in particular as much as it was the island generally. And being stuck here.

That and just habit.

"And I'm guessing you won't believe that."

Seivarden felt tired. All she wanted to do now was to go somewhere reasonably familiar where people would recognise her as Radchaai, and find some kef.

"I can't do anything about that though. You have my apology for what I did to offend you, if you want it."
1000yearstoolate: (looking down at you)

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 06:33 am (UTC)(link)
Seivarden was relieved to hear that. It didn't matter to her whether she believed the apology was sincerely meant, but hopefully this would satisfy Hannibal.

"I am," she replied. "I didn't plan to stay, but apparently I have no say in that." She clearly wasn't pleased about that.

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 11:09 am (UTC)(link)
"No?" Seivarden raised an eyebrow.

Not that she hadn't fought before, but after the past few years she wasn't really in shape. And she had sold her armour to get money for kef.

"I... don't think so? Well, some people are a little... odd."

Like her new roommate, who drank blood. And Jono.

"What exactly is invading?"
1000yearstoolate: (looking down at you)

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 11:25 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry Sparkle, Seivarden wasn't really inclined to trust you right now.

"I know about the connections to other universes," she said, her expression suspicious. "Although for some reason I was told that this place is no longer connected to mine."

She was going to ignore the invading animals.
1000yearstoolate: (Default)

[personal profile] 1000yearstoolate 2017-09-25 11:40 am (UTC)(link)
Seivarden could accept that part. Invading animals, however, did sound like she was being made fun of.

"And how exactly would invading animals be a problem?" The tone of her voice probably said she doubted their existence.
