If your character and Kay need to get together for a personal conversation or some other kind of little-tiny-thing, and we're feeling too lazy to throw up a new post, we can spam it up in here.

[When they walk in the door, Mildmay does his best to keep from whistling. This is hands down the best place he's ever lived-- ever set foot in, why not. Aside from the Mirador, of course, but then he slept in the servant's closet thing. Doesn't quite count.]

[He's still not quite sure why he's even allowed in a place like this. He'll try to be on his best behavior, so no one thinks he's about to lift anything.]

[Fat chance of that, Milly-fox.]


Uh- thank you kindly, Kay, I... [Kethe, it has it's own washroom!] Thank you.

[Kay doesn't realize that he's so impressed; it's a nice enough apartment, and it's a lot better of a deal than what she had at home, but it's still basically your average apartment. She points out all the different rooms, the doors to which are all ajar.]

That's your bedroom. There's the bathroom. That one's my bedroom, and I'm using that one as a study, hope you don't mind. The kitchen's shared, which isn't exactly ideal, but... [But that's the way it goes. The neighbors seem like decent enough folk so far.]

[She shrugs at his thanks.] I ought to be thanking you, really. You could have one of these all to yourself if you wanted, you know.

[Mildmay, not wanting to look too flat (and there's a laugh), tries to hide the astonishment that Kay obviously doesn't share. Maybe she came from better money than he thought. Manhattan's sounding more and more alien as time goes on.]

I know. [Or, at least, he, uh, figured. Really he ought to figure out a way to get the information out of that damn guide.] I ain't lived on my own in ages, though. Reckon I'm out of practice. The bedroom's awful nice.

[Mildmay wanders over to a chair, since they're presumably in the living room, and Mildmay's just walked across town. Long distances: His one true nemesis, besides stairs.]

[action.]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Glad you like it. [She slips out of her shoes and takes a seat on the davenport; while the long distance doesn't bother her, the standing around while the guest--or roommate, she supposes--is sitting does.] I'm out of practice at living alone, too. I've been married nearly fifteen years now--it's strange to try and go back to single living after all that.

[She pauses. When Kay admits it to herself, she misses Julius desperately; he's the only thing she does truly miss about home, aside from her books and (occasionally) the sounds of traffic when she's falling asleep. So she tries not to admit it to anyone, least of all her own self.] My husband probably feels the same way, I suppose. Who'd you live with back in Mélusine?

[Mildmay just appreciates that the seats are cushioned. He folds his hands over Jashuki and appreciates the feeling of his leg unknotting.]

Ain't it just. Lived with my brother and his boy-toy, in the Mirador. [Maybe that's not the most polite way to talk about Gideon, but he's dead, so Mildmay figures he won't mind.]

[action.]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 04:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kay blinks, frowning. She genuinely isn't sure what he said, though it sounded like "boy toy," whatever that means here.] His what?

[action.]

[identity profile] ohmykethe.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 04:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Mildmay repeats it very slowly, because he figures the confusion is borne of his slur and not his vocabulary.] His boy-toy.

[Mildmay figures he may as well be blunt, since he's not sure of any other word for it:] The guy he's fucking. He's molly. [Shrug.]

[action.]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 05:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[And Kay just sort of stares at him for a second, trying to figure out if she understood him correctly. There're only so many ways to interpret what sounded suspiciously like "the guy he's fucking," though, so presumably she's got it.

She's not unaware of homosexuals--that's what "molly" means here, right? she hopes so, or she'll need a bit more explanation from Mildmay--but in general...well, she ignores them, they ignore her, and neither has to think of the other fucking. She clears her throat.]


Well. This'll be a change for you, then.

[action.]

[identity profile] ohmykethe.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 05:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Mildmay isn't quite sure how he managed to shock Kay, here, but obviously he has. They've gotta have mollys in Manhattan or wherever, right? Well, whatever, Kay's seemed to've moved on, so Mildmay will, too.]

Seems quieter, at least, which I can appreciate.

[Most of them live downtown a bit from her, Mildmay, it's not your fault. She's perfectly happy to talk about something else and so nods in agreement.]

Yeah. It's really kind of peaceful--at home, it's horns blaring and people shouting at all hours of the night, sometimes.

[action.]

[identity profile] ohmykethe.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 05:21 pm (UTC)(link)
More the same where I'm from. I ain't never lived rural like this before. Manhattan's a city, then?

[Kay never did hold up on her end of the tell-us-about-where-you're-from bargain.]

dragoneer: (.....Huh.)

[Action, May 22]

[Hiccup probably shouldn't have brought Toothless inside community house one--who knew if they were going to stumble across someone that had a dragon phobia, or, more likely, Toothless accidentally smashed through a wall?

Still, there he is, dragon in tow, wandering around the first floor at ten thirty, as Kay had instructed. He didn't bring anything else with him--she'd have the food, and books he wanted to check out. Hopefully he'll run into her soon, though, before Toothless scares the living daylights out of some poor passerby...]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-24 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
[Kay bought--insofar as anyone can buy things here, but "bought" sounds a little better than "pillaged"--a bunch of vegetables, noodles and a chicken the night before, and made sure that the shared kitchen had all the necessary pans. This morning, she doesn't have to worry about anything except grabbing a few books for Hiccup. She picks out a half-dozen, so he's got some variety to choose from--a Louis L'Amour, an Ellery Queen, a collection of Benny's short stories, and a few others--then grabs the anthology of stories she and Julius wrote, in a fit of vanity. For herself, an interesting-looking novel by someone called Kurt Vonnegut, and she's set.

She nearly drops every book she's holding when she comes out into the hallway and sees a great black shape stomping toward her.]
Oh--!

...You weren't kidding about the dragon. [Trying to ignore the way her heart's pounding she smiles at the boy--Hiccup, clearly--and his beast, and after a moment or two, her expression won't even look forced. The surprise of finding a dragon in her hallway is quickly supplanted by the fact that there's a dragon in her hallway.]
dragoneer: (But you just gestured to all of me!)

[Action, May 22]

[personal profile] dragoneer 2011-05-24 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
O-oh, hey! [He grins, though obviously looks a bit nervous. And Toothless? He's giving her a curious look. He's not a big fan of being inside this building, but he'll wait to pass judgment on her.]

Y-yeah..I prooobably shouldn't have brought him inside, but...[He shrugs. Hopefully this doesn't come back to bite him in the butt.

...Literally.]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-24 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
Well, if he, ah, gets bored, we can always let him outside.

[Kay considers the dragon for a moment or two, all the while with the odd sense that he's sizing her up just like she's doing to him. Shifting the stack of books to one arm, she tentatively reaches a hand toward him and glances over at Hiccup.] Is it all right if I...?
dragoneer: (Ayyup.)

[Action, May 22]

[personal profile] dragoneer 2011-05-24 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
That? That may be a wise decision. I-I wanted you to meet him first, though.

[Because Hiccup, ideally, wants his giant fire-breathing lizard to like his friends.

Toothless gives her hand a wary look, though he doesn't seem displeased by the gesture.]


Oh, yeah, go for it. Usually, if he let's you touch him, it's a pretty good sign...

[And he isn't moving away. Just watching her very, very closely. And wishing he had a fish.]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-24 12:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[And you know, Kay wants to be friends with fire-breathing lizards. Had she known that fish were the way to Toothless' heart, she'd have bought him a whole plate of herring.

Still a bit tentative--how's a woman supposed to write if her right hand ends up bitten off?--she places a hand on Toothless' head, smiling at him (as much for the feeling of a dragon's hide beneath her fingers as anything else).]
Well, it's nice to meet you, Toothless. If I ever meet another dragon here, he'll have a lot to live up to. [Because seriously, big black dragon that seems not to be devouring her. This is completely the best.]
dragoneer: (Art appreciation 101)

[Action, May 22]

[personal profile] dragoneer 2011-05-24 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[A compliment! Oh, Toothless likes those. He doesn't flinch away or even growl, instead purring a sort of approving hrrrrf..]

Oh! You can try scratching him, too. Underneath his chin, just there.

[And he demonstrates while Toothless starts to hum.]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-24 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kay follows suit, a grin spreading over her face at Toothless' reaction. In the back of her mind, she's memorizing the tilt of Toothless' head and the way Hiccup looks down at the creature with what looks like great admiration--a boy and his dragon, that could be a good start to something--but foremost is the satisfaction of petting a dragon.]

Well, we'll have to save some chicken for him when we're done. [And she looks to Hiccup.] You ready to cook?
dragoneer: (We cool bro.)

[Action, May 22]

[personal profile] dragoneer 2011-05-25 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
[He nods eagerly--he can't forget why they came here, after all!] Definitely. Toothless?

[The dragon gives him an annoyed look, rather enjoying the scratches he's receiving. But he did hear that bit about saving some chicken for him, so he'll cooperate. He gives Kay a grateful nod before heading back towards the door.]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-25 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
[Kay's sorry to see Toothless go--she's terribly curious about him--but cooking's only going to take longer if they put it off. When Toothless is on his way out, Kay leads the way over to the community kitchen and to the sink to wash their hands.]

Most of the time, you'd do all this over a few days--roast a chicken one night, use the leftovers for soup another night. But you can fit it in one day, if you start early enough. [She heads over to the icebox and pulls out the chicken, wrapped up in butcher paper.] Since you're the one learning, you get to pull out the heart.
dragoneer: (I have to eat that?)

[Action, May 22]

[personal profile] dragoneer 2011-05-25 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Hiccup follows suit, washing his hands and listening closely to everything she--

Wait.

Wait, what?]


Iiiiii think you better repeat that. Uhh...yeah. [Because there was no way he heard that right.]

[Action, May 22]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-05-25 01:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[She can't hide her amusement at this as she turns on the oven.] Just be glad it comes plucked. When I was a girl, I had to help my grandmother remove the feathers.

[Anyway, Kay unwraps the chicken, and...surprise, it's a chicken like any other.] They've probably put them in a little bag, heart, liver and gizzard. Pull that out and set it aside, and I'll get the roasting pan.
