It's a mild night, all things considered. The weather is as even keeled as the Scotland of the Wizarding world is this time of year, and Raph is glad for it. He's glad for the partly cloudy skies, and the chill-yet-not-cold air that breezes past him...and the wounds newly opened on his knuckles.

Yes, he truly wouldn't be Raph if he metabolized his rage using completely healthy means. And there are fewer things less healthy for knuckles than being used to punch brick walls.

They tend to be unforgiving, brick walls.

Kind of like some blondes he knows, Raph muses to himself with a dry chuckle.

"'Least with walls you know where you stand," he says to no one in particular, before lifting the pilfered bottle of Jack to his lips and downing a sizable gulp. He wipes the corner of his mouth with the part of his free hand that isn't currently bleeding, and gives his surroundings a good once over.

It's been a long time since he's been up on this roof. His roof. Even longer since he's sat, legs dangling over the edge, with a bottle of his favorite spirit close at hand.

"fuck."

He's on the roof.

Of course he's on the roof. Where else would one go with a bottle of strong alcohol and wounds to lick? Because high up is where one should be when one is drunk, stupid and hurting.

Alanna gives the green bottle from Mike a disparaging glance and sighs heavily. Chasing a soon to be drunk, stupid and hurting Snag-Ninja up a ladder with a bottle of one's own: nearly as idiotic.

"I'm coming up," she shouts at the legs she sees dangling overhead.

the_lioness: (Bring it)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
That's assuming Alanna would run from a drunk, stupid and hurting Shang-Ninja. She wouldn't, mostly because 'stupid' factors into the equation.

At the moment, however, she does rather wish he'd come to her. Using the ladder, of course. She's in no mood to break his fall.

"Didn't offer my services as one," she barks back.

Not to him, anyway.

Alanna tucks the bottle into her shirt and grabs ahold of the ladder, starting her climb.

Halfway up, Alanna turns her face toward Raph and scowls.

"Maybe I just feel like hitting you over the head."

She continues climbing, eyes locked on his legs.

Soon she's close enough to give his leg a good tug for that, but she manages to resist and says nothing else until, with a good grunt for the effort, she's standing beside him looking out at the lake and woods from this unfamiliar vantage point.

"Long way down," she notes, intelligently.

Date: 2010-12-01 10:44 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (Words fail me)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Alanna scrunches up her nose.

"I think Jack said that to me once." Speaking of Jack... Alanna glances at the bottle now back in her hand and does a quick, forceful switch for Raph's Jack Daniels. "Try that."

"Compliments of the house," Alanna says after a long pause.

Another grunt and she's beside him, sitting cross-legged, still frowning, still watching the lake. "You're bleeding."

Date: 2010-12-01 10:58 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (Go ahead... tell me another)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Continuing in the same vein: "You're an idiot."

Faintly curious, she watches him take a drink, then adds, "An idiot with a very good heart."

"Sir Obvious, thank you very much."

She's quite certain she's earned it.

"So."

Date: 2010-12-01 11:14 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (Uh huh)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Alanna ignores this.

"Did you apologize?"

She doesn't care for Jack Daniels, but that doesn't stop her from taking a drink. And then immediately regretting it, expressed best through a full body shudder.

Date: 2010-12-01 11:24 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (Did I do that?)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
She holds up a finger. It takes a moment for the warmth spreading down her throat and through her stomach to turn more pleasant than burning hot like fire.

"What happened?"

The bottle is accepted, though she doesn't immediately relinquish Jack. She sniffs the cider -- huh, a slightly sweeter scent than Adam's -- and chases the Jack with it.

Much better.



He didn't think it was from Adam, did he? Alanna shrugs to herself and fixes Raph with an expectant look.

Date: 2010-12-01 11:38 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (WTF?)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
Point.


But Adam uses different bottles.




"He threatened you with your own sword for apologizing to his sister?" Beat. "Thomas?"

They've met.

"Goddess."

She takes another drink; hands the bottle back.

"Did she say she needed time?" Alanna suddenly asks. "Because when a woman says she needs time, give it to her."

Date: 2010-12-01 11:48 pm (UTC)
the_lioness: (gaping)
From: [personal profile] the_lioness
She looks insulted.

"I did not tell you what to say. Just to say it."

Beat.

"Also possibly how not to say it, but I'm unclear on whether that took."
