When I was six, my older sister shoved me down a hill into a pile of broken glass because I could play the violin better than she could. The glass caused severe lacerations on my face and I also broke my arm.

I've always told people that the scars on my face were because of an "accident", but in reality the only accidental part about it was that my sister wasn't expecting the broken beer bottles to be there.

[Cassie does want to leave sympathy, it's the first reaction to this. But Mio doesn't want it and she doesn't want to disrespect her wishes.]

If it doesn't hurt or anger you to do so

I would like to hear you play one day.

I bet you play beautifully.

Talent never really leaves you, I think. Once you're good at something, you never forget it.

I really do think you should.

[Cassie is forever excite! Music will always make her giddy and excitable okay.]

Yes, please! I'd love to! :)

Sure thing! I'll be in the Tower somewhere, probably the piano room. Just come get me when you're ready! :)

[Sounds awesome! :D]

There's not really a good way for me to say this. Sorry sounds like pity, and I don't pity you.

I just wish I knew better how to help with that pain... because I know what it's like.

Your mother was awful, to put it nicely. We're always craving that respect and appreciation from our parents, but we're never really enough. At least, in the case of our families.

Your mother makes my father look like a bloody saint though.

My mother was just weak. Loved my father too much, and was willing to turn a blind eye whenever he lost it. I never much held it against her, I suppose. She couldn't help being in love.

There's a part of us that will always be connected to our parents, even if we don't want to be.

You felt remorse, when you killed. He didn't. That makes you different. I think I cling to my guilt because it does separate me from my father.

Do you think there's still... a link?

There's a difference though. I never felt bad about any of the men I had to kill, because they were a threat to others. It's the innocent lives I still mourn.

We've already talked about this, so you won't get an that's awful or anything that might upset you, but.

I'm always here.

And if you need help in figuring out what the crap's going on in the journal network, I can do that.

I understand that! For what it's worth, I like you just the way you are, scars and all.

YEAH, I've been looking at ... all the increasingly truthful entries and their own reactions to it later. It's not cool at all.

Of course I can! Consider me on it right away. Even if that's not the case, it's good to cross that off the list anyway. I'm up for the digging.

I will! And unfortunately, no, but I know someone that does have experience with this kind of thing. A supernatural hunter. They might know something about what to do.

In the meantime, can I get anything for you?

I have! I think it's because a lot of them don't have homes of their own to go to, so they either hang out here or actually live here. Elashte's gone, right? That's also gotta mean there might be a new Neq coming in soon.

That would be her! I'll let her know.

[Pause.] Three weeks? Seriously?

Okay, that's it. Forget sometime soon. We're getting out now. I'm giving you some time to get ready so we can go have dinner some place nice, outside the Tower, because it is not good for you to be cooped up for that long.

I will not accept no for an answer!

It just feels like everything's up in the air lately, doesn't it? Not just politically, but in general. It might not be a bad thing but this is Chicago, so I guess I just automatically assume there's doom waiting around in the corner. Or maybe it's me still feeling weird about being gone.

That's what I like to hear! ;)

I'm giving you twenty minutes.

[If they aren't hating us, we are not doing it right!

I would totally be up for either of those options, btw.

Seriously. It'd be awesome for them and they should both have a life, not to mention they are kind of adorable with each other.]

Sounds good to me! I'll be there. [And, as promised, Phoebe's going to be waiting in the garage for Mio. She's dressed up a bit fancy, since it has been a while since either of them have gone out. She believes the occasion warrants fancy.]

[I would love this. Since there would've been another Riftpower Roulette recently, and they haven't seen each other since, it's totally possible, too. Hee! It's true. With Tay becoming Phoebe's guardian and Phoebe now becoming Mio's, I do think we're starting to do our part again. ;)

They are! Mio grounds Phoebe and gets her to be serious and focused on the job, which is something she does need also. Though she will be bringing all the fun out now. It's needed!]

We've all got our scars.

In my opinion, no one else really needs to know where the fuck they actually came from. That's for you to know.

I hate this Rift effect. Just going to throw that fucking out there.


Anyway, I play the violin too. Not that great at it.

If I find someone who is, I might have to punch them in the fucking face.


I think if there's any experience that would take the emotion of music out of something, that just about could do it.

I can look back on any fucking scar that I have metaphorical or otherwise and say the same. Makes it hard to have regrets if you know every fucking thing led you to where you are today and you want to be that person.

Either way, I don't really mind discussing. Better than trying to face my fucking bar after that particular name reveal. [Yeah, he'slocked himself in his office completely for the week.]

From: [personal profile] rawly

Yeah, I'm not seeing it happening any fucking time soon.

I've been there. I get it. [He has a huge, huge issue with overworking too...and leaving the bar in general is hard for him to do for some weird psychological, fucked up reason that he hasn't been able to figure.

But he doesn't want to be in the bar right now so.]
Yeah, sounds good. To be fair, we both work a fucking lot so. But there's nothing wrong with taking a break sometimes.

[And he actually snorts laughter. Not that she can see.] High school is either the time for melodrama or the time for doing really stupid shit. Sometimes it's a combination of the two. We don't want to fall back into those years tho. Never.

Best course of action would be a swift death. [Smirk. He's only half serious.]

I've had a decent sized staff and I delegate, but I'm always good at finding something to do. All the time.

[Smirk.] It's telling for both of us. I'm in my office working too. With coffee so it's not like I'm thinking about calling it in any time soon.

I've always been a fan of kick in the pants when they're fucking necessary, and they get necessary a lot more often than people think. Think these universes are all just swimming in their own versions of melodrama.

Now see that's the kind of shit I'd like to hear and if you can laugh about it now, it's what counts.

A soap opera? Fuck, and I thought this place was bad, but I wouldn't call it a soap opera.

One of the most important things you can grow. I think it comes in handy here too even if you still will spent a lot of time being miserable too. If you can't laugh at all, you're just about screwed here and I'm thinking anywhere else.

As the world turns so these are the days of Mio Hongo's life. Yeah, I'd be pissed too. Fuck, I still get pissed a lot of the time.

Fuck, yeah, I'd be in a forever pissed off mood. People annoy me enough as it is, and most of my problems are Rift related.

Yeah, same. It could be a lot worse, but when people have so little in this universe that's under their own control, it'd be nice if they could keep their secrets.

If you'd rather I pretended not to have seen this, just say the word.

Then again, if you'd rather have a few drinks and a quiet round of "bloody families, bloody Rift" sometime, feel free to just say that as well.

Fair enough. There are parts of mine I'm not keen to drag out of the closet either. And I hate those games of trauma one-upmanship that come out of those conversations unless one's terribly careful -- and believe me, in my old line of work, those got pretty spectacular. Stupid teenager stories sound like a lot more fun.

You're the one with the busy schedule at the moment, so I'll leave it up to you to say when.

You've probably guessed more or less right. I can pass for civilian quite nicely, but it's an effort, and the circumstances under which we met probably rendered that impossible. I'll just be charmingly vague and tell you I worked for the government, shall I?

Monday-or-Tuesday sounds all right from my end, unless something extremely drastic comes up, and it shouldn't. I'll keep an eye out.
