Je me fous du passé

[The feed opens with Bianca. She stands in Delight's bar, the lighting rearranged to get as close as she can to the appearance of being on stage, and she glares into the camera and takes a large swig of the glass in her hand before she makes any sound.

Then she sings. Inside the bar, her voice is strong enough to rattle glasses.

People listening to the feed on the network may hear the familiar Lancastrian accent of Kate, grumbling almost inaudible complaints. Most of them seem to be along the lines of why did I agree to this and why did I give up booze.

The song ends and Bianca casts a grateful look at Kate before launching into speech.]


I have lived a long time, my friends. I am sorry for many things. I've been unforgivably careless of people's hearts and hopes. I've allied myself with the most treacherous of worms - I have trusted too much, cared too much, and -

[She stops.]

Or not cared enough. I have broken people for my own gain. I have sold myself to a power I knew to be malevolent, to buy my own life. I have tormented those I believed I loved, and abandoned those I know I did. Kate -

[She gazes, stricken, past the camera.]

I pulled you into this scheme. You almost died. Sharon and Maketh did die. I'm sorry, so sorry, for that.

[And then she lifts her chin, defiant.]

But I'm not sorry we made the attempt. I'm not sorry for taking a risk on the chance of buying all our freedom. Are you watching, Hope? Did you feel it, just when it started? The only real hope I've felt since coming here? I hoped so hard to end you.

I'm only sorry we failed.

[There's a brief resigned sigh from behind the camera as the feed goes out.]

If it hadn't been you, it'd have just been the gods pulling our strings instead, seeing as we've been treated like marionettes in a puppet show this entire time. Won't hold it against any of you for what you did.

...Don't have much of a right to lecture anyone about moral ethics, anyway. [Rey has done worse, as far as she is concerned.]

[She sighs. Neither "sweet" nor "precious" are accurate descriptors of Rey, she knows, but Bianca seems to use pet names like those for anyone she's remotely fond of.]

Have already had plenty to drink lately. Suppose one more isn't going to make a difference.

Can't tell if you're being serious or not.

[Since not many people would share that sentiment. At least, not in Rey's experience. It isn't like they didn't have good reason, though.

[She sighs.]
Never mind. Will be there soon.

[They can talk then. She decides.]

[Rey blinks, her posture going rigid for a moment at the initial sign of contact, which in hindsight she should've seen coming. Bianca is just one of those types of people.

[Even so, Rey isn't sure what to do with herself at first. Her arms hang out in a reluctant pause to return the gesture.

[Instead, her eyes just blink away.]
Was in the area, anyway. Been spending quite some time in this place.

[More so than she probably should.]
circumitus: Otherwise you'd be a dad by now. (thank god you're gay)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-07-08 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Rey is still, as if not sure what to do with her arms. As Bianca rests her head, though, she decides to bring a hand over the woman's back. This is comforting, right?]

Have no place in cursing anyone over making such choices. [Rey may be a hypocrite, but she owns her shit.] And just some bourbon would be nice, but you don't need to get it right away.
circumitus: tall, lanky, uses teeth when giving head, and runs like a giraffe. don't do it, man... (no i know her type)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-07-09 08:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Let's go with that, sure. At least Rey isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

[She opens her mouth to say something, until Bianca's question comes out, and then she falls quiet again for a few seconds.]


No, that was real. Don't really get cold.

[Cheers for being a living furnace.]

[Does it work in water? What an odd thing to say--

[Rey stares down at Bianca for a moment, deciding to neglect the fact that she, personally, would rather choke on a bullet than to ever vote for a god of love. Love is scary. People do terrible things in the name of love.

[But she bites her tongue and focuses on the more pressing issue.]


Um, sure. It shouldn't be too hard.

Though... admittedly, have never considered applying it to something like that before. [The corner of her lip twitches. She is unsure.]

[Her mouth twists despite that reassuring squeeze, though she can't get offended or anything. For the most part, she's applied her abilities for combat purposes. She has, however, found some alternative use for them.]

You mean you want to put a tub in the orchard...?

[That's a weird location.]
circumitus: I ONLY KNOW HOLA. (EVERYONE IS SPEAKING SPANISH)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-07-10 09:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[Makes sense.]

Mm. Suppose with some wood and other equipment here, it shouldn't be too difficult to build something...

[She did help construct the dam, after all.]
circumitus: This is drunk and confused... (this is worse than naked and afraid)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-07-17 02:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Nothing beats good old fashioned self-sufficiency.]

Shouldn't be too hard.

[Her mouth then twists, forming an uncertain expression.]

If we make this thing, will you still keep voting for Love? [Rey knows that it's only a matter of time before Love is also resurrected, but she'd like to delay the inevitable for as long as possible.]

[However long Bianca intends to hang onto Rey, she isn't sure, but she isn't about to pull away now. Her jaw tenses at Bianca's eventual words, though.]

Don't see the need to rush this one in for that reason. People tend to do all sorts of fucked up things for love.

[She has other reasons, too. That is just a major one, though.]
