Oct 26 22:59:37 <E4D> "You got cool to lose?"
Oct 26 23:00:07 <Dexanote> "Yes. yes I do."
Oct 26 23:00:39 <Dexanote> He shifts. "'e provoked me. I din't wanna admit I was wrong."
Oct 26 23:01:01 <E4D> "It's hard to do."
Oct 26 23:02:29 <Dexanote> "Yeh, but 's hard for me to force me arguments into a win when 'm stuck on a boat in tha middle of tha ocean." He sighs.
Oct 26 23:04:51 <E4D> "How's bein' stuck on a boat figure in?"
Oct 26 23:05:52 <Dexanote> "Can't run away after I stab em up." He looks at another part of the sky. "… 'e made me start thinkin."
Oct 26 23:06:30 <Dexanote> " 'm kinda hollow."
Oct 26 23:06:49 <E4D> "What, that it might be better to not stab people up - Oh. How ya figure?"
Oct 26 23:06:59 <E4D> Jason glances over now.
Oct 26 23:08:54 <Dexanote> "What am I, in yor eyes, Jazon?"
Oct 26 23:12:42 <E4D> Jason turns at him, staring him up and down for a moment.
Oct 26 23:14:10 <Dexanote> "… Not literally, you dumb twat."
Oct 26 23:15:25 <E4D> "You're a demon. One that I was tolerating. I saw you useful as weapon. As a potential ally. Then you killed my wife, as I was telling you not to, as she was crying and bleeding, being taunted as you cut on her. Then I realized exactly what you were. The kind of thing little kids get told about when they're growing up. The evil monsters that hide in the dark.
Oct 26 23:16:24 <Dexanote> "But what if I could be more?"
Oct 26 23:16:36 <Dexanote> "More'n somethin that needed to hide in tha dark?"

Oct 26 23:18:35 <E4D> Jason thinks about making a crack about needing lots of sunlight to bloom nice and pretty, but this probably isn't the time. Instead, he answers him honestly. "That's be a step in a new direction. What're you thinkin' about becoming?"
Oct 26 23:19:03 <Dexanote> "S' hard."
Oct 26 23:19:42 <Dexanote> "But… Like…" He looks down, unfocused. "I wanna save tha world's gardens, Jazon."
Oct 26 23:21:39 <E4D> "The gardens."

Oct 26 23:22:54 <E4D> "I've seen too much weird shit to think that's nuts."
Oct 26 23:22:56 <Dexanote> "Well, tha demon sisters made me able ta grow shit on me."
Oct 26 23:23:07 <Dexanote> "Jus' gotta go an' start somewhere."
Oct 26 23:23:13 <Dexanote> "Not sure where yet."
Oct 26 23:24:38 <E4D> "I'm sure there's plenty of real estate that could use it now."
Oct 26 23:24:55 <Dexanote> "Course. You people all up an' mucked it up."
Oct 26 23:25:03 <Dexanote> "Nothin personal, course."
Oct 26 23:25:13 <E4D> "Wasn't me that did it."
Oct 26 23:25:21 <Dexanote> "You know what I meant."
Oct 26 23:25:22 <E4D> "And of course."
Oct 26 23:27:25 <E4D> "'S why I didn't take it personal."
Oct 26 23:30:50 <Dexanote> Together, the killers watch the stars.
Oct 26 23:30:53 <E4D> Jason mutters something under his breath.
Oct 26 23:31:06 <Dexanote> "Whazzat?"
Oct 26 23:31:16 <E4D> "Debating with myself."
Oct 26 23:31:24 <Dexanote> "Go on, 'm not exactly inna position ta hit ya."
Oct 26 23:32:36 <E4D> "You know why I put you back together."
Oct 26 23:32:52 <Dexanote> "No."
Oct 26 23:33:44 <E4D> "Think on it for a minute. See if you can figure it out."
Oct 26 23:34:54 <Dexanote> He tilts his head, slowly turning down to look at the water.
Oct 26 23:35:20 <Dexanote> His eyes narrow. "… You wanted to kill me yorself, din't you?"
Oct 26 23:36:16 <E4D> Jason doesn't even allow a grin, just looking back down at him from the stars.
Oct 26 23:36:38 <E4D> He looks up, rather, at the taller scarecrow.
Oct 26 23:37:15 <E4D> "But here we are, having a nice little existential conversation."
Oct 26 23:37:21 <Dexanote> "… Yor crafty. I like that."
Oct 26 23:37:56 <E4D> "You know… I can't help but think the same thing. You want a little story, Shank?"
Oct 26 23:38:07 <Dexanote> "Sure."
Oct 26 23:38:36 <E4D> "It's about being a prisoner of war."
Oct 26 23:39:18 <E4D> "Ya see… when you're getting trained up for a job like the one I used to have, that goes to the places I used to go, you get told that's a possibility. And you have to be ready for it. Like anything else."
Oct 26 23:39:45 <E4D> "And one of the things you're supposed to do if it happens, is talk to the people that're holdin' ya."
Oct 26 23:39:56 <E4D> "Any chance you can get, any time you've got."
Oct 26 23:40:23 <E4D> He shakes his head. "Doesn't even matter if they can understand your language. You try to befriend 'em."
Oct 26 23:40:30 <E4D> "Get on their good side."
Oct 26 23:41:37 <E4D> He takes a breath of the night air. Getting cooler. He nods to himself and looks over at the scarecrow. "You know why you're supposed to do that? Make friends with, say, the guy that watches your cell?"
Oct 26 23:41:41 <Dexanote> He murmurs, the sound of wind through the trees.
Oct 26 23:44:05 <E4D> Jason continues looking at him, expectantly.
Oct 26 23:44:29 <Dexanote> "… So 'e starts likin ya back, I presume?"
Oct 26 23:45:04 <Dexanote> "Migh' drop 's guard? Starts thinkin yor a cool guy?"
Oct 26 23:45:36 <E4D> "That's the first step. But the real drivin' reason is so they'll help you out if you make a move. It's so they'll hesitate when the time comes. When you've got that gun pointed at you, and you're at the disadvantage, you'll have that little sliver of doubt in the back of their mind."

Oct 26 23:47:26 <E4D> "Now what's that look about?"
Oct 26 23:47:37 <E4D> "You were talkin' about bein' crafty. Just made me think back…"
Oct 26 23:48:35 <Dexanote> "It begs tha question, who's th' prisoner in this scenario?"
Oct 26 23:48:58 <E4D> "Depends on who's tryin' to make nice, doesn't it."
Oct 26 23:49:45 <Dexanote> "… Yor a tricky one, Jazon Dodridge. That you are."
Oct 26 23:50:06 <E4D> "But I'm just tellin' a story, though."
Oct 26 23:50:20 <E4D> He stands to face him, squaring off.
Oct 26 23:50:33 <Dexanote> "An' 'm just listenin, aren't I?"
Oct 26 23:50:50 <Dexanote> "Jus' listening to a story of how tricky a human can be."

Oct 26 23:55:03 <E4D> "Somethin' I think about a lot. Who deserves it, and whether or not they do. What do you think somethin' like that would cost?"
Oct 26 23:55:42 <Dexanote> He shifts. " 'm not sure, Mr Dodridge. Neva had ta give forgiveness meself, before."

Oct 27 00:04:40 <Sabitsuki> The bird slouches forward on Shank's claws, then looks up and says in a very posh British accent: "The killing and eating of birds will not be tolerated in Port Townsville. Thank you and enjoy your stay."
Oct 27 00:04:52 <Sabitsuki> then slouches forward again and dies.
