heiresy: (Time for a round of stripple triad!)
heiresy ([personal profile] heiresy) wrote in [community profile] kingdomcomes2017-06-10 06:41 pm

It's like christmas in july except just it's cold and everyone is stressed and there are no presents

Who: [OPEN] Aymeric and you!
What: Catch-all for non-participants and early losers in the fuckening, but everyone is welcome! Come gloat if you like.
When: All day.
Where: In the guard barracks, outside the castle, Yenh's hut, the inn.
Warnings: Will update as needed!



I. In and Around the Castle
[For the entirely-too-manyth in a row now the weather has been getting unrelentingly colder. So much so that he could barely think as he did his duties. It would do no good to lose his work or the possible trust he had earned with his diligence over this, but the temptation to abandon his post became increasingly difficult. During breakfast, if you are a fellow guard, Aymeric will be trying to get your attention. Maybe there is something they can do about their uniforms...? If you are not a guard, he will try to catch your attention anyway. He has requests to make in his miserable state.]

II. The Village
[Once his terrible, miserable shift is over he will run around the village with increasingly conspicuous supplies. First a couple blankets, then some buckets, and eventually he will be rolling a wooden bath down a road. He comes to Yenh's shack and knocks on the door with his arms very much full.]

III. The Inn
[Much later now, he finds himself at his familiar watering hole. Sure, it cost a lot more than drinking with the other guards in the castle, but the illusion of getting out of the Mistress' reach was well worth it. Here you will see him finally changed out of his guard uniform, but back in the clothing he arrived in. Terribly ironic that he was able to acquire some new clothes the very week it was too cold to wear any of them. He's back to looking very over-dressed and out of place. If you sit near him, he will offer you a drink and a warm, weary smile.]
takenblack: (kinda unsure??)

II: Apparently Yenh's shack is a valid mingle location now, let's boogie people

[Yenh answers; she's clad in her Shire coat and has apparently decided to wrap her bad blanket around her head as a cowl for warmth. The look of pleased surprise (and then just confusion) are evident all the same from within the curl of cloth.]

Lord Aymeric, good day- but what is all of this? [She immediately steps backward, figuring he might want to come in out of the wind, if nothing else.]
takenblack: (we~ll.....)

[personal profile] takenblack 2017-06-11 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Now that she has found herself the proud owner(??? borrower???) of a wooden tub that takes up a good chunk of the available floor, she truly has no way of knowing how to react.]

[At least not until he makes a request. Those she can do on autopilot, if need be.]


Oh! I don't have any for myself, much less you and Estinien, but lanolin always works wonders. Prices are higher than I rightfully feel like I should have to pay, considering I could make it myself. ...If I had the proper facilities.

[She glances over at the pile of discarded glass and clay containers she's scavenged, some of which contain plants and have been corked with either a literal cork, or whatever else she can stuff in the top.]

You could also... use oil? [She tries very valiantly not to think about Aymeric covered in oil.]
takenblack: (up and at 'em!!!)

[personal profile] takenblack 2017-06-11 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Do not think about the Lord Commander covered in oil]

[She blinks at his question, finding it completely absurd.]


A bit—but nothing compared to what you two are going through! I should rightfully be the one bringing you blankets and a warm bath with oils.

[DO NOT THINK ABOUT THE LORD COMMANDER COVERED IN OIL]

[She finds herself hoping she can get all of this pent-up energy out of her system with the contest. Very belatedly, the Warrior of Light gives him an awkward smile.]
takenblack: (a hero's smile)

[personal profile] takenblack 2017-06-11 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
[There is absolutely no way he meant it the way she took it, so she lets it go. Surely he just means they're all going to take turns.]

[Yenh waves her hands at him, shaking her head.]


Truly! I appreciate your kindness, milord, but I shall be alright. I may not be shrouded in the Blessing of Light, but I'm still a dyed-in-the-wool adventurer. It takes more than cold to break me!
takenblack: (sweetly lookin')

[personal profile] takenblack 2017-06-12 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
[Being the giant pushover she is, she sighs and returns his smile.]

Very well. 'Tis not like we'll be out long, either.

[She reaches out to accept the coat, wondering if Aymeric is committing some kind of ancient heresy by allowing her to even touch it.]
takenblack: (meow motherfucker)

[personal profile] takenblack 2017-06-14 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She looks down at herself, as much feeling drowned in fabric as she looks. If she didn't know any better, she would think he did it on purpose. ]

[ She can't help but join him in laughter, even as she feels a little embarassed and confused. ]


That I am! Terribly astute of you, Lord Commander.

[ Yenh points dramatically to the door, her had momentarily emerging from the depths of the sleeve. ] Shall we?

II

[personal profile] dravanicide 2017-06-12 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Today happened to be an off day for Estinien, and as such he's taken to skulking around the roof tops in the village to pass the time. He didn't like people, interacting with them, being near them, you name it, he probably hates it. However, he isn't entirely opposed to watching the daily lives of people from above, far removed from them entirely.

And besides, if he saw something questionable happening, he could drop in and put a stop to it. Not that he actually cares too much about being a hero, it's merely something to do.

What does catch his eye before anything of that sort can transpire is Aymeric. He knew he had a shift, but didn't realize it was over already, but more interesting than that is what Aymeric seems to be doing. Or rolling down the path, anyway.

Following him for a bit overhead, making good use of his ability to hop from roof top to roof top with ease, he eventually leaps down and lands before Aymeric—with enough space so that he wouldn't barrel into him. Of course he's clad in his drachen mail, and he gives Aymeric a curious smirk.]


Have plans, Aymeric?

[A pointed glance to the wooden tub he's rolling.]

[personal profile] dravanicide 2017-06-14 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[Estinien smiles. Sometimes. Well, smirks, but it's similar enough.]

Full sure am I she can take care of herself.

[A reply as cold as the wind that nips their skin, or at least someone who didn't know Estinien would likely think so.]

Aye, a method in which you attempted to partake.

[yeah. He read the listing, Aymeric. You ain't sly, even if you look like a fox.]
dravanicide: (pic#10430799)

[personal profile] dravanicide 2017-06-14 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
You misunderstand, I am not judging you for attempting to play hero.

[There's a quirk to the corner of his mouth, as if he's trying not to smirk, but failing quite miserably.]

But to lose so quickly... that is quite another thing entirely. Here I had thought a man of your influence might stand a far greater chance.
dravanicide: (pic#10699495)

[personal profile] dravanicide 2017-06-14 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
...Truly, you needn't disclose the details.

[That smirk has fallen to something closed to disgust. The last thing he needs is the details of Aymeric's defeat.]

Nevertheless, you perhaps should have gotten some practice in before hand—that was not solo training.

[Yeah Aymeric. Your jerking it keeps him up at night.]

Scarce can I blame you for any hesitance in that regard, however, 'tisn't as if we are offered a desirable bounty in which to select from.

[Estinien lets out a snort at that.]

Would take far more than a dragonet to maim me in such a way, and you are well aware of that.

[It's gonna take more than that, Aymeric.]

Perhaps if you had inquired, I may have inclined to assist you.

[He says that, but there's an edge to his voice that makes it clear that he's teasing Aymeric. They both know well Estinien would have likely declined had he requested such.]
dravanicide: (pic#10443363)

[personal profile] dravanicide 2017-06-14 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
I did not realize you committed my size to memory. Aymeric, is there aught you need to admit to me?

[Look man, Estinien isn't so insecure he has to worry about the size of his dick he never really uses, ok?]

You speak as if I would turn down my friend in a time of need. Have I ever failed you in the line of duty thus far, Lord Commander?

[Of course, their experiences have little to do with butt-fucking for glory, but the point very shakily remains.]

[Yeah, definitely not a guard here - unfortunate as the guards' attire is, at least they don't have to wear the stupid goddamn viking helmets.

... Still, considering the weather, Kaph feels like he has the upper hand here.]


What? What do you want?
ignisvulpes: (get off my back DAD)

no worries!

[personal profile] ignisvulpes 2017-06-27 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[Unfortunately, it doesn't look like charm alone is gonna cut it, because Kaph is not impressed. He responds in a hushed voice, leaning closer:]

What kind of coin-slash-favors are we talking about here?
