Edmondia: have been watching my
gargoyles dvd a bit here and there these
past few days. he poketh his nose out.
Edmondia: dunno if he's actually gonna do
anything, or just kind of be there
Nemi the Nen: *pokeths him*
Edmondia: he pokeths back
Edmondia: he likes being petted
Edmondia: is he chibi? I can't tell
EnsTren: probably chibi then
EnsTren: since a chibi only might
bite me, but adult definetly would
Edmondia: fangs are littler on this 'un, too.
Edmondia: is amnesiac!chibi?
EnsTren: the one that thinks that he
is traped in granny's illusion?
Edmondia: he thinks that? *blinksu*
Edmondia: hmn, that does make sense
Nemi the Nen: it's wildly imaginitive and
mommy is really really weird and mean
EnsTren: and daddy is weird but
Edmondia: daddy's worried about his
EnsTren: smart man
EnsTren: cause he's plotting on
EnsTren: back to avalon
Edmondia: ...that's not going to end well.
EnsTren: no, it's not
EnsTren: of course, when he grabs
the boat and goes there, he's going to think
he's coming on in granny's territory and so
is going to push it back into the mists
Edmondia: and what will he do then?
EnsTren: let avalon take him where
he needs to be
Edmondia: ...which is?
EnsTren: not a fucking clue
Edmondia: he might wind up back in the
Eyrie building, in the pretty atrium
Nemi the Nen: he'd squeak and turn
around again and gawk at granny's power
Edmondia: he'd just keep winding up back
there, I suspect
EnsTren: this would make him upset
EnsTren: and decide to head for
avalon and blow people up until he found
his real daddy
Edmondia: and when he gets scooped up
by his not-real daddy?
EnsTren: start crying
Edmondia: Daddy has taken him back to
their private rooms in the palace and is
cuddling him fiercely.
EnsTren: even though baby is trying
to blast him?
Edmondia: Baby is just a baby.
EnsTren: yeah, so ouchy sparks
flying out but not hurting daddy
Edmondia: Yes, and daddy hugging him
and letting him.
EnsTren: he's lost and confused and
this really really isn't his daddy
Edmondia: He is being rocked and petted
EnsTren: he's cried himself out
Edmondia: Daddy has settled down on the
bed and is cuddling him.
Edmondia: ...and has done something a
little silly and has pressed the end of his
new braid into his hands to chew on.
Nemi the Nen: And somehow he starts
Edmondia: ...daddy go 'erk' and 'cuddle!'
EnsTren: Snifflign and braid
Edmondia: Daddy is rocking him again.
EnsTren: He's sad and depressed
Edmondia: Daddy has given him a little
kiss on the forehead.
EnsTren: Poor baby is sad and
wants to go home home, not this weird
Edmondia: "This is home."
EnsTren: "It's not riiiight!"
Edmondia: "It's been ten millennia.
Wouldn't it be stranger if things hadn't
EnsTren: "I don't know!"
Edmondia: "Shh..." He rocked him a little
more. "I know you're upset, little one, I
Edmondia: "Is this place so terrible?"
EnsTren: "How can you be my
daddy? You're not daddy and mommy's
not right at all!"
Edmondia: "Robin, look at me." He tilted
his chin up gently, meeting his gaze evenly.
"When we had you, my little one, we were
scarcely more than children ourselves."
He stroked his hair soothingly. "Your
mother and I just grew up."
Nemi the Nen: "It's a lie! It's a lie, It's
Edmondia: "...my little trickster, tell me,
what purpose would she have in lying to
EnsTren: "Keeping me away from
Edmondia: "And what purpose would that
EnsTren: "So Daddy would be
looking for me and worried and diverted
from the war, and I wouldn't be there to
Edmondia: "Wouldn't your daddy be
fighting even harder to try and get you
EnsTren: "Not if I was off avalon"
Edmondia: "Even if that were the case,
why would she choose to do something
Edmondia: "Wouldn't it be easier to hide
you away somewhere?"
Nemi the Nen: "Hide me in an illusion so
I wouldn't escape"
Edmondia: "Why would she pick an
illusion where she isn't queen?"
EnsTren: "So I'd want to belive it"
Edmondia: "Then why would she give you
parents you didn't believe in?"
Nemi the Nen: "Because she's a crazy
bitch and doesn't like mommy so messed
Edmondia: "...where did you hear that
EnsTren: "I dunno"
Edmondia: "Hmph." He ruffled his hair.
"So you are completely convinced that is
all only and illusion."
Nemi the Nen: "I can't get out of it," he
whined softly, vision blurringh again.
"You're not my daddy and there's no body
else but you"
Edmondia: "I'm sorry, baby." He kissed
his forehead softly. "I had to grow up.
Avalon needed me."
Nemi the Nen: "I can't get out"
Edmondia: "Because this is all there is."
Edmondia: He nuzzled him softly. "Not
even we can turn back time, little one."
EnsTren: chibi is sad, how many
people did he maim?
Edmondia: not many, daddy snagged him
Edmondia: didn't want him to make things
EnsTren: how many people noticed?
Edmondia: not many
Edmondia: maybe coyote
Edmondia: his daddy is letting him chew
on his hair
EnsTren: that's nice of him
Edmondia: wants him to calm down and
EnsTren: poor baby
Edmondia: daddy wants him to be less
EnsTren: does obie have any ideas
to make him feel better?
Edmondia: well, the growing a braid so's
he could chew on it seems to have helped
EnsTren: he's lonely, and seems to
have developed a bit of a liking for david
EnsTren: but is still sad and
Edmondia: while at the mo', I think daddy
might be showing him around their private
quarters on Avalon
EnsTren: hopefully jog some
Edmondia: Yep, and excuse to carry him
around in the hopes that it will make him
EnsTren: he conks out
Edmondia: Daddy go 'phew' and plonks
him down on the bed. Then goes 'flopsu'
EnsTren: old crib?
Edmondia: Nope, when Robin was sprog,
he slept with mum and dad.
Edmondia: For slightly creepy reasons,
which mainly involved Oberon's psychotic
mum. Easier to protect helpless sprog if
helpless sprog is right there next to you.
EnsTren: And what did wifey think?
Edmondia: Of sharing the bed with sprog?
Edmondia: Protect sprog. She's a
Edmondia: She'll be happy Oberon's got
his braid back.
EnsTren: even if they were drooled
Edmondia: She can wash his hair for him.
Edmondia: He may hunt down food for ze
EnsTren: ooot, who?
Edmondia: ?? Daddy
Nemi the Nen: my first reaction, who will
Edmondia: *sweatdrop* Real food, not
Edmondia: I'm getting sleepy
EnsTren: trio hear of it?
Edmondia: Dunno. Paranoid!daddy is
EnsTren: well cyote got hurt
Edmondia: Hmn. Dunno.
Nemi the Nen: he's a gossip
Edmondia: True. Smack upside ze head!
EnsTren: "An itty bitty blew me up!"
EnsTren: he iz ze scortched
Edmondia: puppy flambe
EnsTren: And what food doth the
Edmondia: Fruit, mostly. Meat pie for the
meal itself, and then various yummies.
EnsTren: avalon food tastes better
EnsTren: and he wants some small
Edmondia: Daddy has offered him fruit
EnsTren: he barters for cider
Edmondia: Cider he gets.
Nemi the Nen: He likes it and is a happi
Edmondia: Daddy pats him
EnsTren: he likes his fruit
Edmondia: Daddy is pleased that he's
EnsTren: He spits out the pits at a
target he's magiced onto the wall
Edmondia: Daddy has sighed and told him
that if he makes a mess, he'll clean it up.
EnsTren: So he aims at the trash
Edmondia: Good boy!
EnsTren: He has good aim
Edmondia: "What is it, little one?"
EnsTren: "I'm really not in one of
Edmondia: "You're really not in one of
Nemi the Nen: "...I wish I was"
Edmondia: He was quiet for a long
moment, then reached over and pulled him
into his lap. "I know, little one. I know."
EnsTren: Safe there, in daddy's arms
Edmondia: His... real daddy, just
EnsTren: And weird. But still
Edmondia: Older daddy, stranger daddy,
but still his daddy.
EnsTren: The one who made sure he
Edmondia: It... wasn't right and it
definitely wasn't perfect, but maybe it
would be okay.
EnsTren: Did he still have to stay
with the humans though?
Edmondia: He was home now...
EnsTren: And that human had been
okay, but how could he be safe there with
all that iron?
Edmondia: He didn't know, the World was
a very big place, and he was very small.
EnsTren: He liked Avalon, it
matched him better
Edmondia: He was born here, after all.
EnsTren: And it was small and
Daddy was here
Edmondia: His home.
EnsTren: No matter what bull
Edmondia: That other place couldn't be
his home if he didn't remember it.
Nemi the Nen: Even if Bronx was nice
and he liked that human
Edmondia: He didn't know them, so they
couldn't be his family.
EnsTren: Daddy was, even if he
wasn't quite like he remembered
Edmondia: But... even daddy had to grow
EnsTren: But he still remembered
daddy, not like the humans
Edmondia: This was still his place.
EnsTren: In daddy's arms
