This Heaven Scent thing is the strangest feeling. I hated it at first. I don't like the idea of having anything affecting my mind. But now, I don't know.

I've been missing my Dad. He was a monster. Not a literal monster, but the kind that does the worst possible things. I thought I hated him for what he did to me, my Mom, and so many other people. Now, I'm seeing that he did love me. In the only way he knew how. Someone told me once that every family loves differently and every love is unique. I think the person that told me that, loved me too. That person was like a father to me too. And in the end, they both showed their love for me in the same way. I see that now. I can accept it now.

I feel like doing something to celebrate them. My Dad taught me how to hunt and we made dinner afterwards. I'd like to cook some venison, or other game meat now. Any recommendations on butchers?

My other father figure taught me how to play the harpsichord. I don't suppose anyone knows where I could find a harpsichord in Heropa? If I do find one, roomies, would you be okay with it?

Would anyone join me for dinner or listen to me play? I don't feel like being alone these days either.

What is love, Abby. Explain that to me.

But you've been accepting it. And talking. Here. So.

I'm waiting.

[Ronan is chatting on the internet. That's how dire this Heaven Scent situation has become.]

I think I might be able to find you a harpsichord. My dad used to play one, too.

[Incidentally, he was the literal kind of monster.]

Tragically, I only play bagpipes and guitar. Never got around to harpsichord. Though I'm pretty sure harpsichordists aren't exactly pop culture superstars.

[Ronan scoffs! That's the most absurd thing he's ever heard.]

Yeah. Obviously my charm. I should tell people to fuck off more often.

Some of them looked twelve. I just can't be that guy.

Ronan, I think your gold lamé shorts shrank in the-

[Is there a word for someone who's the opposite of a wingman? Because this small freckle-faced dude has been listening to the conversation from the next room, and has finally decided to save Ronan from any potential suffering. He pops his head around the door frame, sees Abigail on the communicator screen, and gives a little wave.]

Whoops, didn't realize you were talking to someone!

[Is it a blessing or a curse to live with a telepath? Because Noah could probably hear Ronan's internal screaming from all the way in the other room. Look, there are worse things in life than realizing a girl may be flirting with you, but Ronan is having trouble naming one of those things at this particular moment. Thank God for Noah, here to mortify him before an awkward silence even has the opportunity to drag on.

When Ronan turns away from the camera, Noah is met with the patented Ronan Lynch Murder Stare™.]

Thanks, buddy.

[He grins impishly, scooting his way into the room on socked feet.]

Tolerable? He said that?
nightmarist: (caustic ☘)

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-15 01:06 am (UTC)(link)
I'm already regretting it.

[No, he loves you, Noah.]

[Noah slings his arm over the back of Ronan's chair.]

Ronan's special like that. A real catch. [He's having too much fun.] But you're too cool for him. I mean, harpsichord? That's totally retro!
nightmarist: (droll ☘)

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-15 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Is Noah trying to break some kind of record? Does he want to be the first boy in history who was murdered twice by his best friends? Ronan turns to look at him again, very slowly, before returning his attention to Abigail.]

Yet Noah's favorite band is Blink-182. How does something like that happen to a person?

[As if Ronan is in any position to criticize music taste.]
admemoriam: (i can't wait till i get home)

[personal profile] admemoriam 2017-02-15 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Oooooh did you hear that, Ronan? Noah's taste is "not so bad". That's the most flattering thing a girl has said to him in ages.]

I think you seem very cool.
nightmarist: (reasonable ☘)

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-15 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Look at Noah, the female whisperer. Ronan's sinking lower and lower in his chair. Far be it for him to get in the way of this flirting.]

He knows I'm better at talking to cute girls than he is.

[I mean that is probably because of how extraordinarily gay Ronan is, but Noah's trying to be smooth.]
nightmarist: (disenchanted ☘)

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-15 12:49 pm (UTC)(link)

That's for damn sure.
admemoriam: (when you turn in your sleep)

[personal profile] admemoriam 2017-02-18 09:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh, no. Nope. Not gonna hear that from this girl right here.]

You're super cute, what are you talking about?

[Sorry, Ronan.]
nightmarist: (exasperated ☘)

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-25 11:42 am (UTC)(link)

[Oh, look, Mr. Grumpy said something.]

[He's not being flippant when he says:]

So are mine.

No one should ever think any less of you because you've been hurt.

[Noah cuts into the conversation. His voice sounds different, somehow. He sounds older, a bit farther away.]
admemoriam: (sixteen just held such better days)

[personal profile] admemoriam 2017-02-28 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
[He shakes his head.]

No. There are more important things about you.

[personal profile] nightmarist 2017-02-28 03:22 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ronan has gone very, very quiet again. He stares at Noah and keeps his damn mouth shut, because Noah's really the one more qualified to speak.]
