seattle, wa - 2013

There's a chill seeping into the air, and a fog drifting down from the mountains, and everywhere in this city, people look out at the damp streets and roll their eyes over the sudden absence of summer.

On this particular night, at a lone stool in a darkened bar, there sits a woman with hair as golden as a sunrise.

Her drink is mostly water by this time. People turn to look at her, men and women both, but even the men seem to know not to speak to her. There is a stage taking up one end of the space, on which a girl in blood-soaked white is doing a slow striptease.

The burlesque is pretty good tonight. With Stephen King as source material, Aphrodite wasn't quite sure what to expect, but she thinks the girl dancing Carrie is doing a lovely job. It's hard to be sexy when covered in pig's blood.


... At least, unless your significant other is into that.

Meanwhile, the ice in her glass continues to melt.

"What, the 'you seem tired because you're not being bitchy' line?"
2020sight: (I has a flavor!)

"Well, at least I'm being consistent."
2020sight: (You did not just do that.)

Epimetheus blinks.

"Whoa, now. Is that what I said?"
2020sight: (I has a flavor!)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
"You're not my type, if . . . that's what you're implying . . . because that'd be weird."
2020sight: (You did not just do that.)

"Who's fighting?" He holds up his hands. "I bought you a drink!"
2020sight: (Adelphoi)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 06:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"Uh, because you're family?"
2020sight: (You did not just do that.)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 07:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh shit.

Alarmed, Epimetheus drops a $20 on the bar and stands to follow her, abandoning his drink.

If there's one guiding principle Epimetheus has tried to live by, it's don't piss off the Olympians. It literally never ends well. So what does he go and do?

Shit shit shit.

He stands there blinking at her for moment, uncertain, then stuffs his hands in his pockets.

"I didn't come here to bother anyone," he says carefully.

His eyebrows go up.

"That's a new sentiment."

2020sight: (Epimetheus)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-10-01 12:48 am (UTC)(link)

"Inevitabilities aren't my strong suit."

He hunches his shoulders, not quite a shrug. "What am I not entirely wrong about?"

2020sight: (Epimetheus)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-10-01 01:09 am (UTC)(link)

His eyebrows shoot up.

"What, Milliways?"

2020sight: (Epimetheus)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-10-01 01:29 am (UTC)(link)

Epimetheus blinks for a moment or two.

Then--

"There's this bar up the hill where we won't get kicked out for conversing, if you want."

"It's totally selfish. I get nervous when your family's upset. Shit happens."
