[The day after this, Loki needs someone to talk to.

It doesn't escape him that, on both Asgard and this ship, he never felt like he really had anyone to truly speak with; despite his silver tongue and his innate charm, he never kept steadfast friends. Always too cautious, always too withdrawn, never as sociable as most -- his flaws that kept him from being able to connect in the way that most could.

The only person he would feel like talking to on the Thor would be Amelia, and even then he feels like it would be nothing more than banter. A slight annoyance on her part.

He doesn't pity himself for it (though he's no stranger to self-pity at all), but rather ignores it altogether. He sends her a text, out of the blue with little context.]


Do you keep items of sentiment in your room?
allfatherissues: (What did you just say?)

[The response is not immediate, but it comes, assuredly. Even as Loki types, the scent of flowers permeate every inch of his room.]

What kind of sentiment? Nostalgia, happiness, or melancholy?

[A strange question, but it was the heart of the matter.]
allfatherissues: (You should see the look on your face.)

Then why bother keeping it near you? Is it not easier to simply be rid of the item?

I suppose you think these are strange questions. Forgive me, I'm simply trying to figure out where to place certain things.


[Figuratively and literally.]
allfatherissues: (Does this armor make me look fat.)

[It's hard, through text, to judge the tone of words. It's easier for Loki to assume that it's a simplistic and obvious reply, than for him to make the mistake of assuming anything more poignant. He hesitates as he thinks of how to respond next.]

I see.

They're flowers, if you were wondering.
allfatherissues: (Over yonder!)

[Loki switches the feed to video for the sake of showing her the flowers, and Amelia will see a slightly tired God of Mischief, but not without a wry smile on his face. (A practised art, that.)]

See for yourself.

[He turns the guide in the direction of the flowers, which sit in the middle of a table.]
allfatherissues: (It isn't debilitating but rather-)

[The feed stays on the flowers while Loki speaks.]

There was none. My brother simply sent them to me, to tell me things he could never say out loud.

[On the contrary, they were quite accurate.]

I want to.

[And yet they're still there. He turns the feed back to face him, and he doesn't bother keeping his smile.]

You would think I would gravitate towards lies, wouldn't you? Being who I am. The Trickster, the Liesmith. But these? These, I just want to burn.

allfatherissues: (I will not yield.)

[He's silent for a moment.]

No. I haven't; their sentiment, though misplaced, is... hard to ignore.

[He loves what lies they represent, but he hates the fact that's all they will ever be.]

What would you do, Amelia?
allfatherissues: (I am just so exasperated.)

Re: video

[personal profile] allfatherissues 2012-02-14 09:02 am (UTC)(link)
[He can't help but laugh a little jadedly at that.]

A locket? That seems more sentimental than their current form. And yet out of sight and out of mind...

[He seems to be considering it.]
allfatherissues: (-a work in progress.)

[personal profile] allfatherissues 2012-02-16 05:12 am (UTC)(link)
[He responds fairly quickly, though there's a certain detachment to his tone, and a faraway look to his features -- it's hard to tell if he's considering it or not.]

Important? Yes. But there are different kinds of important, as I'm sure you know. This is the type that perhaps rubs me the wrong way.

We'll see. Either way, I thank you for your advice.
allfatherissues: (Mmmm hm.)

[He offers her a small grin -- just barely there, the corners of his lips curving upwards only slightly -- but there's the smallest hint of sincerity in it. For sincerity to not be coupled with a influx of unmanageable emotions is a rare thing for the God of Mischief.]

I'll leave you be, then. Until next time.

[And he ends the feed.]
