Track of the Day: AC/DC - Shoot To Thrill
The mud and the rain are earthy scents that bring some amount of relaxation to Lupin, but it really all depends on the current situation on hand. If she has the time, she can sit back and relax and enjoy it. Rain is relatively a clean scent, washes away the old, and cleanses things up. Mud, well. Mud is mud. Dry earth is more appealing, but there isn’t anything wrong with mud. Except the squishy-between-toe-pads part. Not fun getting mud out of fur and toes. But if Lupin is focused on hunting, and it happens to be raining, then it’s a bit of a hindrance and more of an annoyance. She can still track relatively well enough and slog on through, it won’t mean she will enjoy tracking down food or hunted quarry through it all, though. And at the very least, it helps somewhat mask her approach, especially if she sucks it up and utilizes a mud mask to hide her own scent up. Useful, since most don’t think to use it…
"Well, I thought you’d never ask!" Lupin beamed back.Thera sipped her Bailey’s, noticing Gary’s stare and meeting it with one of her own - not unfriendly, but enough in it to silently ask if there was a problem?
"Thanks." She nodded at the reply about the tables, though her curiosity remained. "I’m in no hurry, but I wouldn’t want to just jump in and find I’d cut someone else off."
He shrugged at her comment, sliding a glance up at the preparing band on stage, before flicking his gaze back at the two women. “Well, it’s up to you what you want to do. Things are slowing down, like I said, so you might get lucky to nab a free table soon as these guys start playin’. Not a guarantee, though.”
Lupin, in turn, raised her glass in silent thanks to the man, who nodded in return and sauntered down a little to serve another couple down a bit from them. Twisting on her bar stool, she leaned against the bar, sloshing her drink a bit in her glass. “So…the night isn’t a complete disaster yet. That’s good news so far, yeah?”
"Yeah." She wondered vaguely if she’d done something to upset Gary, but simply shrugged and continued with her drink. Just keep you mouth shut, Thera, and buy the booze. it’s the safest course.
"It’s more inspiring here than the work party we left, that’s for sure." Hopefully the band knew their stuff, and would be good for some toe-tapping, at the very least.
Lupin was quiet at first, noting the silence from her friend after Gary’s departure. She gave it a few moments to let it sink in before she paused long enough to give Thera a consoling pat on the arm. “Don’t take anything he might say too personally. He can be standoffish, but Gary’s good people once he gets to know you. Might take him a while to warm up, though. Took him forever to let me and my old buddies come and play here, even though we were minors. He caved eventually when he saw how good we were, how good we entertained the crowds.”
Glancing at the band as they finished their prep and began to prepare in earnest, a very faint smile tugged at her lips. A feeling of nostalgia washed over her and she sighed, almost wistfully. “He’d have to sneak us out if the cops had to be called, though. We technically weren’t supposed to be here. He could’ve gotten in a lot of trouble. Even if I knew the Chief of Police from…previous extravaganzas and adventures.” She made a face before offering, “I got in trouble a lot as a kid. Kinda sad when half the station had my mother and stepdad on speed dial and vice versa. First name basis and everything. Had a few barbeques at some houses, oddly enough.”
I’m not saying who you can RP with.
I’m not saying who you can’t RP with.
I’m not going to stop you from RP-ing with someone.
I’m not going to try and force you to RP with me.
I’m just saying at the end of the day when you rp with someone else, I will sit and stare at you thinking:
No, you’re not the only one.
GUYS CAN WE TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THESE BEAUTIFUL GLASS PENS
THEY’RE LIKE WANDS
…all I see are very pointy, pretty long pieces of glass that can be stabbed into someone’s eye and still look decorative.
