Nick.

[Wait. What's the deal with calling your roommate when you're on the same side of the city now? Because reasons.]

There's something we need to talk about. When will you be home?

circumitus: This is drunk and confused... (this is worse than naked and afraid)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
Yes, but it can wait for you to get back.

[No pressure or anything, man.]

circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Rey is feeding Wellingham when Nick steps through the door. The stupid little fish is swimming dumbly in its bowl, catching stray flakes drifting downward into the water.

[Closing the cap of the food jar, Rey sets it aside and looks to Nick once she sees the door shut behind him.]


Hey. [Casual, cool, calm. Nothing wrong here.]

You still doing that thing about Danse?

[By "that thing", she assumes that Nick will assume what she means.]

circumitus: There's my chippy! (where's my chippy?)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[It's somewhat relevant chit-chat, okay.]

And I think there are better ways of going about keeping an eye on him than what you're currently doing.

[That is, getting a personal spy to do it for him. One that isn't very well-balanced, at that.]

circumitus: She was stuck there, we simply exchanged rides. (it's not like i paid for sex)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
I do.

[She doesn't even miss a beat.]

Don't spy. If anything comes up that I think you should know, I'll tell you -- but I don't want you to have anyone tailing after him anymore. Least of all Shadow.

Date: 2017-05-13 04:17 am (UTC)
circumitus: Keep up the good work. (it's a 12/12/12 miracle)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
You mean other than the fact that he just showcased beating a man bloody over the network?

[Huff. There's more to it than that, though.]

He's got problems; so does Danse. If their shit ever collides, Danse would see you liable.

Date: 2017-05-13 04:52 am (UTC)
circumitus: What could possibly go wrong? (11% beer and firearms)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
Maybe, maybe not. I came around, didn't I?

[The situation is more similar than she realizes, but right now she understands that things are different from her own situation, not knowing what Danse is himself right now. Sigh.]

And if it's one thing I know from personal experience, it's that it isn't always a good idea to keep poking a hornet's nest. [Sans has learned that the hard way from Rey.] These things take time.

circumitus: Insert Warmer song lyrics here. (good lord knows that i'm greedy)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
And if that's the case, then you're less likely to find out why from someone like Shadow. Not only is he unstable, he's hard to be likely one to get any answers out of someone like Danse.

[And Rey doubts that that is information that Danse would leave just lying around. She isn't trying to gain his trust for Nick's answers, though -- she's doing what she can for both of them.]

Date: 2017-05-13 06:11 am (UTC)
circumitus: 'Cause it makes him feel like a fish. (says he likes to get high and swim)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
And relying on someone who's just as prone to going ballistic isn't a much better alternative.

[She folds her arms over her chest, her expression screwing into an uncomfortable one.]

Sorry, but I'm not going to trust the judgment of someone who got pissed that I didn't incapacitate you over "letting" you go on with a bum leg for a while.

[A fact that she wasn't all too happy with herself, but that was Nick's choice. Nick, who specifically told her not to go to the gods for his sake. Even if she didn't agree with it, it was what he wanted. That meant more to her than anything else.]

Date: 2017-05-13 06:42 am (UTC)
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[When even Rey thinks you're being too much, it's a problem. Nick's well-being is important to her, but his right to choose how he lives it is another matter. It isn't something she's okay with just taking away from someone, let alone someone she cares about.]

If he does, he does. But at least that'll be on him.

[And not Nick, no matter how much he likes to blame himself for things.]

Date: 2017-05-14 01:40 am (UTC)
circumitus: You owe me waffles (sunrise bitch.)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Of course Nick would blame himself; that inevitable result doesn't surprise Rey. But if it's between Nick and anyone else, she has to consider Nick's well-being at any cost. He's worth more to her than most. Like him, that's just how she is.]

Even so, he's got to want to make use of that potential, not just let it sit there while he goes around starting shit and harassing people. I can't trust someone whose screwed up judgment means more to them than someone's right to choose. I would never try to take that away from anyone.

[For instance, she might not have agreed with Nick's decision not to go to the gods for spare synth parts, but that was his call. The situations vary, but Rey would rather make someone see eye to eye with her than to force them, kicking and screaming against their will.]

Date: 2017-05-14 11:00 pm (UTC)
circumitus: There's my chippy! (where's my chippy?)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Exactly. Rey doesn't feel that it's necessary to hammer the point home for Nick, because he already gets it.

[She sighs in silent agreement.]


I'm not saying you shouldn't put him to use. I just think it's a bad idea to involve him with someone like Danse. Considering how Shadow sees you, and what Danse did, back home you could have called something like that a conflict of interest.

[Not to mention Shadow doesn't seem like the type who needs a sound reason to go after someone. If not for Rey's personal experience with synthetics, she'd have probably been right on the same boat as far as Danse is concerned. But he has his reasons; she knows he does.]

circumitus: - XOXO dad (time to smoke my breakfast)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
Good.

[Rey can't say she's all that surprised to hear Nick has other persons​ of interest in the city to keep an eye on, and while she would rather he not use Shadow for any of it -- period -- that's Nick's call to make. He saw what Shadow did, so he knows just as well what he's capable of.

[Then he flips the subject back to Danse, and she gives a reluctant nod.]


Guess so. And he's been helping out a bit there, yes. Figured it's better to give him something to do, since odds are he's going to stay clear of the Guard.

[Which is expected, if not a little sad, considering how he was when she first told him of the place. Then he met Nick, and things just went downhill from there...]
