This Too Shall Pass 3 2 17

[20:24] * Sept walked down the halls lined with living quarters, humming a tune with a neutral look on his face. He'd stopped by Tsubaki's place to see how she was doing and to drop off her journal, so the next step was to swing by the promenade. It was getting later in the day, so maybe it'd look less deserted…
[20:34] <Minaplo> [It didn't look less deserted.-
[20:34] <Minaplo> [In fact, in some cases it sounded a little rowdier. Sera could hear some sort of commotion coming from Blue's. Of all places.]
[20:38] <Sept> Oh dear. What now? Sera'd been hoping to make a round of the promenade before stopping at the bar.-
[20:38] <Sept> In fact, he was still rather tempted…
[20:48] <Minaplo> [("… Unsafe! Who on Earth do you think you are?! Why, I should report you all the way to the top and have you tossed out an airlock! Truly, on a moving vessel…")]
[20:52] * Sept glanced longingly down the promenade, but his legs took him inside Blue's. The situation sounded pretty dire, and maybe he could defus- divert the aggression, at least. Still, he didn't try to raise any unneeded attention, just as long as he got a better idea of what was going on…
[20:54] <Minaplo> [It was clear that many folks in Blue's were trying to find a better idea of what was going on. Most of them were turned in their seats or otherwise standing up, craning around friends and obstacles for a better look.-
[20:54] <Minaplo> [This was the situation:-
[20:54] <Minaplo> [At one of the tables near the centre of the room was a waitress. She was leaning on a friend, and Sera would quickly see that she was favouring her left foot. She'd clearly twisted her ankle.-
[20:55] <Minaplo> [Unfortunately she'd also been carrying something. A thick red soup had stained much of the waitress's clothes, and some had even found its way onto her face and hair. There were… Puddles of it on the ground and the table next to her as well.-
[20:56] <Minaplo> [This, however, wasn't the source of the shouting.-
[21:10] <Minaplo> [Standing by Blue's Bar was an Ayanami- an Ayanami with light red hair, wearing an expensive-looking long-sleeved pink button-up shirt and a cute frilly white multi-layer skirt that fell to about two inches above the knee. She wore a fine black leather satchel bag hanging on her right hip, the strap slung across her left shoulder. The bag was open, a fluffy white kitten head poking out of the top.-
[21:11] <Minaplo> [Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent why Ni was so angry; much of her outfit was splattered with the same thick red soup. There were smudged stains of it on her forehead, some leaking down through her hair… A lot of it on her shirt and skirt.-
[21:12] <Minaplo> [Unbeknownst to Ni, her kitten was busily licking soup off the side of her bag.-
[21:13] <Minaplo> [The target of Ni's ire was (unsurprisingly, perhaps) Blue, who was currently being impaled on the business end of that most dangerous of social weapons- a pointed, angry finger.-
[21:17] <Minaplo> ["It's completely irresponsible! What about workplace health and safety?!" Snapped Ni. "They should be given safe flats to wear, not heels! You're running a bar, you should know spills happen, and it's hard enough to walk around with heels as is!"-
[21:18] <Minaplo> ["Hey, hey!" Blue glowered back. "It's nowhere near that big of a deal, Ni! They don't have to wear them-"-
[21:18] <Minaplo> ["Oh please. Like you don't encourage it!"-
[21:18] <Minaplo> ["Well, it's fashionable."-
[21:19] <Minaplo> ["What would you know about fashion?" Scoffed Ni. "Look at you, in a tacky suit and a mangy, tasteless hat-"-
[21:19] <Minaplo> ["Motherfucker don't talk shit about my hat-"]
[21:31] <Sept> "…"-
[21:39] <Sept> Sera wasn't quite prepared for this. As he made his way past the tables and loitering customers, he took out Archivist's whistle from somewhere under his shirt. There was a familiar taste of blood as he placed the end of the metal artifact between his lips and blew in it.-
[21:41] <Sept> And no time later, he returned the whistle to its hiding spot and continued approaching the epicenter of the disturbance. "Hey, Ni! Blue!" He tried to catch their attention before things got out of hand with shittalking about hats.
[21:42] <Minaplo> ["You stay out of this!"-
[21:42] <Minaplo> ["You stay out of this!"]

(14:46:21) * Sept raised his hands in front of him, defensively. "Um, no. You're worrying people and making a scene."
(14:49:10) Minaplo: ["This man's actions have led to one of his employees hurting herself and ruining my evening!" Said Ni sharply. "He has to be held accountable!"-
(14:56:17) Minaplo: ["Ni, c'mon." Said Blue. "I told you I'd give you a replacement meal for free and I'd pay her damages. There's no need to go on-"-
(14:56:21) » CakeyCake is now known as Yanmei
(14:56:23) Minaplo: ["Not until you promise to remove the heels!"]
(15:02:37) Sept: "You two can keep at it, but isn't there someone you're forgetting?"
(15:07:28) Minaplo: ["What?" Snapped Ni.]
(15:11:22) Sept: "Did she have any demands?" Sera nodded towards the injured waitress. "Shouldn't she go put some ice on that thing or something?"
(15:18:08) Minaplo: ["She's supposed to go to Sickbay!" Said Blue, looking harried.-
(15:18:26) Minaplo: [The waitresses escorting Matilda suddenly flushed guiltily and began to shuffle off, taking their injured comrade with them.]
(15:19:23) Sept: "Take all the time you need!" Sera yelled after them.-
(15:19:57) Sept: "So can you move this elsewhere? You've got those neat parlors of yours, Blue."
(15:21:51) Minaplo: ["Is that okay with you, Ni?" Hissed Blue.-
(15:22:00) Minaplo: ["We'll see." Said Ni archly.-
(15:22:59) Minaplo: [Like a pair of wary tigers circling each other, Blue led Ni to one of the new private parlours…-
(15:23:03) Minaplo: [Was Sera following?]
(15:26:12) Sept: "Hey, d'you need me to mediate?"
(15:27:15) Minaplo: [Ni huffed, but Blue gave him a cautious nod.]
(15:28:03) Sept: "Happy to help," Sera said with a begrudging nod and followed the two of them.
(15:30:50) Minaplo: [They were waiting for him, their expressions dark, when he arrived.]
(15:35:59) * Sept eyed the both of them for a moment before dragging a chair to the end of the table and taking a seat. "Hey, Blue."
(15:42:47) Minaplo: ["Huh?"]
(15:45:00) * Sept crossed his hands on the table, sitting up straight as he faced him. "I think some of your waitresses might have trouble with the heels. Can you consider giving them another choice for footwear?"
(15:49:39) Minaplo: ["You think I'm lyin' when I say they don't have to wear 'em?" Said Blue grumpily. "A pair o' heels are given as part of the uniform, yes, but they're allowed to bring their own shoes so long as they're black flats or dress shoes."-
(15:49:42) Minaplo: ["Hmph."]
(15:50:13) Sept: "Sweet. Anything else you want, Ni?"
(15:53:01) Minaplo: ["Ugh…"-
(15:53:31) Minaplo: [Ni shook her head. "You're both missing the point. We moved our civilians away, didn't we?" Said Ni. "So most of the employees here are soldiers."-
(15:53:35) Minaplo: ["So?"-
(15:54:35) Minaplo: ["So chances are the only other footwear they have are whatever the military gives them. There might be a few who have neater shoes tucked away, but the majority of them don't have footwear that matches your outline except the ones that you give them."]
(15:57:31) Sept: "Is that true?"
(15:58:47) Minaplo: ["… I dunno." Said Blue. "None of them have told me about it."-
(15:59:10) Minaplo: ["It's true." Said Ni. "Should I start bringing in witnesses?"]
(16:03:11) Sept: "N-No, I don't think that's necessary. But if no one's brought it up with Blue, is it really a problem?"
(16:05:11) Minaplo: [Ni sighed. "If he's giving them options between his way or one they can't fulfill, then it's not really an option, is it? Besides, for every person who complains, there's ten who want to but keep quiet. The smart thing to do would be to offer heels and flats as part of the uniform for free."]
(16:10:52) Sept: "That'd be really polite of him. How do you feel about that, Blue?"
(16:12:03) Minaplo: ["I… Guess that's not too bad." Said Blue. "I'll speak to them about it."]
(16:12:46) Sept: "Anything else?" Sera said patiently.
(16:13:50) Minaplo: ["This is my favourite outfit. Sho made it for me herself. So I want a replacement shirt and skirt." Said Ni with a huff. "No charge."-
(16:13:55) Minaplo: ["… Sure." Said Blue dourly.]
(16:17:05) Sept: "Is that it?"
(16:17:57) Minaplo: ["I still have a free meal?" Said Ni.-
(16:18:00) Minaplo: ["Yeah."-
(16:18:09) Minaplo: ["Ok, good." Said Ni.-
(16:18:20) Minaplo: ["Mew." Mewed her kitten.]
(16:20:22) Sept: "You two are real assholes, you know that?" Sera let go of his carefully constructed patience. "That's what you were making all that noise for?"
(16:21:49) Minaplo: ["Man, fuck you." Said Blue wearily.-
(16:22:56) Minaplo: ["I don't care for your standards." Said Ni curtly.]
(16:26:50) Sept: "Yeah?" Sera leaned back, taking a look at the ceiling. "Well, this lowlife just got you your victory. I can sleep easy with that."
(16:30:52) Minaplo: ["You're useful, de Pteres. That doesn't give you license to be rude and unpleasant." Said Ni coldly.]
(16:37:32) Sept: "Well, I apologize for my rudeness," Sera nodded to her with eyes closed. "I guess I misunderstood you."
(16:37:55) Minaplo: ["Oh?"]
(16:42:57) Sept: "I didn't- Oh, nevermind, we'll be here forever. I'll just leave you to your dinner."
(16:43:18) Minaplo: [Ni sighed.-
(16:43:20) Minaplo: ["Mew."-
(16:43:44) Minaplo: […-
(16:49:10) Minaplo: [Twenty minutes later, the grill had calmed down, the mess had been cleaned up, and Ni had been decked out. She now sat at her table, wearing a crisp-looking white shirt and navy blue skirt, along with, for whatever reason, a cerulean flower-patterned sari.-
(16:51:25) Minaplo: [Ni was now busy eating her promised dish- a spicy red soup along with crusty fresh bread and strips of crumbed chicken cooked in garlic oil.-
(16:51:48) Minaplo: [Her satchel bag sat on the table.-
(16:52:03) Minaplo: ["Eat up." Said Ni warmly, holding a tiny morsel out to her white kitten.-
(16:52:13) Minaplo: ["Mew!" It cried, nibbling it off the tip of her finger.]

(17:06:28) Sept: "…looks like she's not around," Sera muttered, finding the parlor again. "Sorry, Ni, do you mind if I hang out for a moment? I'm meeting someone here later."
(17:06:47) Minaplo: ["There's a free table over there."]
(17:11:55) Sept: "We could all take up tables while dining alone, but really, something has to separate us from the animals."
(17:13:00) Minaplo: [Ni looked up at him, eyes narrowed, mouth slightly open, the face of someone completely incredulous.]
(17:18:58) Sept: "I'm -not being serious-, Ni," Sera assured her, aware of the potential for murderous intent in the air, "I'm just trying to talk, right? But I get it if you don't want to."
(17:28:04) Minaplo: ["There's nothing wrong with me bringing Cyrus out and about." She muttered defensively.]
(17:31:14) Sept: "…"-
(17:32:21) Sept: "It's a figure of speech. Used terribly. I'd like to apologize to you and Cyrus?"
(17:34:12) Minaplo: ["…" Ni sighed.-
(17:34:22) Minaplo: ["Fine." She nudged the other seat out with her foot.]
(17:43:02) Sept: "Thanks." Sera took a seat, glancing out. The waiters should be able to find him here with his snack. "Look, I know it doesn't excuse anything, but I still have that dumb idea of mine that there's something connecting all the Eva pilots. I make dumb assumptions."-
(17:43:59) Sept: "I was really friendly with a cat in the Paris Geofront. He cheered me up a lot," he tried to immediately switch the topic.
(17:44:49) Minaplo: ["Mew!"-
(17:45:07) Minaplo: ["Something connecting all the pilots?" Asked Ni. "As in a metaphysical force?"]
(17:47:07) Sept: "I just mean like a family or something. Obviously, things are different now. But that idea's still sticking around," he explained, looking at the seemingly excited kitten.
(17:51:00) Minaplo: ["You mean cameraderie."]
(17:52:28) Sept: "Yeah, I guess I do."
(17:53:48) Minaplo: ["Well, some cameraderie exists." Said Ni. "We Eva pilots understand that our experiences are only shared by about two dozen other people ever."]
(17:58:12) Sept: "Mm. But that doesn't help with mind reading, I've found."
(18:02:21) Minaplo: ["Mind reading?"]
(18:03:42) Sept: "Gauging people's reactions?"
(18:03:56) Minaplo: ["Oh, so you don't mean literal mind reading."]
(18:04:03) Sept: "No."
(18:04:16) Minaplo: ["Because Tsubaki could show you how."]
(18:04:56) Sept: "Hm?"
(18:05:13) Minaplo: ["Well, maybe not you, but she can read minds."]
(18:05:37) Sept: "What do you mean?"
(18:06:00) Minaplo: ["When Tsubaki's hooked up in her Eva, she can sense people's thoughts."]
(18:07:56) Sept: Sera's eyebrows were furrowed at that. "Hm," he said in summary.
(18:08:59) Minaplo: ["It's not an especially difficult power to pick up if you're focused on it." Said Ni, primly feeding Cyrus another scrap of meat. "Most Iron Guard Apostles can do it. Those Lances of yours can as well."]
(18:10:29) Sept: "Yeah, that I noticed. I hadn't given the others much thought."
(18:12:39) Minaplo: ["You should be able to screen most of them out now with your new Field."]
(18:14:01) * Sept nodded twice, still a bit lost in thought. "I'm more worried about Tsubaki, honestly."
(18:14:33) Minaplo: ["Oh?"]
(18:17:28) Sept: "Well, she's spending a lot of her time synched now. The power doesn't change anything, but it's just another part of the disparity she experiences every day."
(18:20:39) Minaplo: ["Yes, you're right." Said Ni slowly. "It's a terrible shame that her unit was the one configured for such use. An Ayanami unit could be taken in shifts…"]
(18:29:29) Sept: "True. I'm confident she can pull through, but it'll take a lot."
(18:29:52) Minaplo: ["You're supporting her as she needs?"]
(18:30:03) Sept: "Doing my best."
(18:32:04) Minaplo: ["Does she need more help? Is there something I can do?"]
(18:36:42) Sept: "I don't know. She gets- anxious about the end of her workday, but that's understandable. I don't think she'd mind more company now and again, but…"

(12:26:00) Sept: "Not at all," said Sera in an amused tone and nudged the plate towards the centre of the table. "The portions are extravagant, and there's always more."
(12:32:01) Minaplo: [And so Ni took her prize, lightening Sera's plate considerably. The result was cheesy pan bread dunked in soup.-
(12:35:08) Minaplo: ["So you're waiting for someone, you said?"]

(12:39:04) Minaplo: ["Wasn't that the waitress who just twisted her ankle?"]
(12:43:59) Sept: "Nah. She works here, though. Didn't go for the heels."-
(12:45:23) Sept: "Oh. I guess she did say there's more people with her name here. My bad."
(12:46:42) Minaplo: ["Oh, I see. What does your Viviane do?"]
(12:50:37) Sept: "She waits tables, but also plays music. I owe Blue for something, so I'm hoping to enlist her help to repay him."
(12:51:42) Minaplo: ["Oh, I see."]
(12:52:45) Sept: "Mind if I ask you something?" Sera grabbed one of the toast slices, finally, and nibbled on it.
(12:55:44) Minaplo: ["That depends on what you intend to ask. Is it a personal question?"]
(12:56:04) Sept: "Probably not?" Sera hazarded.
(12:56:29) Minaplo: [She gave him a squint of suspicion. "Ask, but I might not answer."]
(12:58:15) Sept: "Why were you raking Blue over the coals back there?"
(13:00:24) Minaplo: ["Because he was being irresponsible. That's obvious."]
(13:04:41) Sept: "It looked a bit excessive to me. Like you were toying with him just for sport, or something personal. Did I misunderstand that?"
(13:08:48) Minaplo: ["Toying with him?" Ni's brow knotted into an affronted frown. "What a judgmental thing to say! Do you assume everyone who takes another to task is doing it out of sadism?"]

(13:18:33) Minaplo: ["Lie." Said Ni instantly.-
(13:19:35) Minaplo: ["And so what? Someone had been hurt and I was wearing hot soup. Wouldn't the simple explanation be that I was angry, not sadistic?"]
(13:22:24) Sept: "Yes," Sera nodded emphatically, still wearing a hint of a smile. "That's why I asked."
(13:25:59) Minaplo: ["Is there a reason you need me to lay out the simple explanation for you?"]
(13:31:20) Sept: "I know you were angry. But I can't see beyond that." Sera leaned back a bit and held up his piece of bread. "Again, sorry if it was too personal." He took a big bite out of the soft rectangle and chewed on it thoughtfully.
(13:33:20) Minaplo: [Ni let out a small, low sigh through her teeth.-
(13:34:34) Minaplo: ["You're not making any sense. Explain yourself."]
(13:39:31) Sept: "…mm. Way I see it, I'm thinking of two possibilities. The likelihood of which I'm not taking any stance on. One is you were just angry at Blue. Two is you were angry at him and either enjoyed taking him down or were taking something else out on him."-
(13:40:06) Sept: "If I ask you if you were yelling at him because you were angry, I wouldn't get anywhere. Right?"
(13:48:31) Minaplo: ["So you asked me if I was sadistic in order to test a possibility that wasn't supported by any evidence that would more easily indicate anger."]
(13:52:32) Sept: "…yes," said Sera, hesitantly. "In other words, I didn't want to place the excuse in the question, even if it's obvious." His air of amusement had faded by now as he focused on eating for a moment.
(13:55:07) Minaplo: ["You had to know that such a question would aggravate me."]
(13:58:50) Sept: "Well, no. I don't know you nearly well enough. There's nothing wrong with people who enjoy being challenged."-
(13:58:57) Sept: "And besides, I prefaced it as best I could."
(14:05:11) Minaplo: ["Don't be silly." Snapped Ni. "You don't need to know me to come to that conclusion. Most people will react with anger and annoyance if you ask them if they did something maliciously, and that goes double when there's no proof."]
(14:08:10) Sept: "I- can't agree. And it's hardly malicious since you already justified it."
(14:10:19) Minaplo: [Ni sighed.-
(14:11:19) Minaplo: ["Asking if someone did something due to sadism is absolutely asking if they did something malicious." She said. "And it angers people. Worse, it can be dangerous."]
(14:14:44) Sept: "No, hold on," Sera said, having finished his grain abomination piece. "Why can't they just say no?"
(14:23:25) Minaplo: ["Do you choose to be this willfully ignorant?"]
(14:31:00) Sept: "No," Sera answered, furrowing his brow and crossing his arms. "I'll go if you want me to leave. But I'm listening if you want to answer."
(14:38:42) Minaplo: ["Then here: asking the question itself without proof can be insulting, infuriating or dangerous without the person being questioned saying a word." Said Ni, clearly forcing a patient tone into her voice. "Such a question can be accusative, casting aspersions against a person's character. In that case it's basically as offensive as if you'd been outright accused of something you didn't
(14:38:42) Minaplo: and would never do."-

(15:32:25) Minaplo: ["Mmm."]
(15:36:35) * Sept looked at her for a moment, then grabbed that second toast he'd been sizing up and dug into it.
(15:36:45) Minaplo: ["Mew."]
(15:41:35) Sept: "Is it difficult to keep cats on the ship?"
(15:41:55) Minaplo: ["Hmm. In what way do you mean?"]
(15:43:49) Sept: "I guess in ways like keeping them happy. Don't they usually like to wander around a lot? Stare at birds from a window?"
(15:45:51) Minaplo: ["I take them for walks. Take them out onto the deck, where they can play around. They're pretty young, so they don't stray too far."]
(15:49:59) Sept: "Uh huh."
(15:52:35) Minaplo: ["You have pets?"]
(15:54:22) Sept: "Nah. I should've, though. Would've been fun."
(15:56:22) Minaplo: ["Then maybe you should find one."]
(15:59:22) Sept: "I've got a lot of people around me these days. But maybe."
(16:00:05) Minaplo: ["Then maybe you could start by volunteering to help Mr. Awala."]
(16:01:01) Sept: "Ah. You didn't specify a pet that could kill me."
(16:01:23) Minaplo: ["Don't you have an AT Field?"]
(16:02:39) Sept: "Yes, but…"
(16:04:30) Minaplo: ["But?"]
(16:06:58) Sept: "Well, it feels like showing off. I'm apparently difficult enough to approach anyway."
(16:07:38) Minaplo: ["Well, just remind yourself that whatever you could do doesn't really compare to what that golden Guard does."-
(16:07:46) Minaplo: ["And it's just silly to let that stop you from using it beneficially."]
(16:11:38) Sept: Better than Albus. Achievement unlocked.-
(16:11:52) Sept: "Alright," Sera nodded. "I'll keep that in mind, too."
(16:12:07) Minaplo: ["There's this big magnet spider…"]
(16:14:35) Sept: "What's a magnet spider?"
(16:16:18) Minaplo: ["Oh, Chancellor Zhang was given a baby great spider as a gift." Said Ni. "Mr. Awala minds it for her. It has these magnetic spurs in its legs, so it can 'track' and leap onto moving cars, or so I hear."]
(16:20:39) Sept: "How's that a pet…? I'd have to take a bunch of time to understand him on that view."
(16:24:43) Minaplo: ["Well… He's a special kind of fellow."]
(16:26:36) Sept: "I'm sure there's still something to it."
(16:40:13) Minaplo: ["Mmm."-
(16:40:17) Minaplo: ["Mew!"-
(16:40:59) Minaplo: [Before long, Ni had finished her stew and bread, leaving behind but a spoon in an empty bowl. She quickly rose to her feet.-
(16:41:06) Minaplo: ["I should be going. You're waiting here for your Viviane?"]
(16:42:57) Sept: "I'll hang around here. Thanks for the talk, Ni."
(16:46:37) Minaplo: ["Mmm. Be good."]
(16:47:28) Sept: "Haha. I'll do my best. Take care."
