callipygos: (from the seafoam)

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.

Epimetheus groans.

"Please don't."
2020sight: (You did not just do that.)

"Oh, shut up."
2020sight: (Definitely humouring you.)

"Glad to know my opinion carries some weight."

"Ah. Good." He toasts her with his beer. "Everything makes sense again."

He reaches out to clink bottles, still looking dubious.

"Are we bonding?"
