[ just when quorra gets used to the sun and the way it warms everything, she's greeted with clouds. she sits in the grass, propped up on her elbows, frowning up at the sky, and, poutingly: ] But it isn't night yet.

[ clearly, there is a glitch in the system. but it isn't raining, and everything else seems to be in working order. perhaps it's a little bit more windy than she expected, and she scrunches her nose, eyes glancing back down to the grass as it waves in the breeze.

earth is utterly amazing.

idly, quorra kicks off her high heels and feels the grass on her feet, and holds back in a delighted laugh, mostly because she isn't with sam. sam would understand, but in the meanwhile, she does at least have to assume the state of a human woman. a quirky human woman, perhaps, but really - how well do these things ever go?

at least she refrained from saying, "i'd normally have to be careful; those shoes could harm my render without the proper support."

[ long story short (a very lengthy one cut very short), the new curse does not go as anticipated. condensed even more, belle finds herself - memories intact, as much as that disturbs her and delights her all at once - in the expanse of a city, small and overwhelming all at once, lights at every turn.

belle also finds herself without much money or a drivers' license, but that's alright. she has friends for that. doesn't she? but belle isn't in the habit of calling in favors as frequently as her beloved was - was, she remembers, and ultimately, she realizes that she can really only benefit from the distraction.

so. driving lessons, it sure is.

at night.

belle adjusts in the driver's seat, hands feeling for levers, because she's short, and how is she supposed to see over the steering wheel, and - her attention is caught by something dangling from the rear-view mirror. a cross. gingerly, she grabs it.

Is this supposed to protect us?

Seems like you've been everywhere.

[ annie spares him a glance over the counter as she straightens her apron, hands pulling momentarily at the sleeves of her sweater. it's a slow day, one that affords her conversation, and she's thankful. it's a more organic way to reintroduce herself to that thing that most people tend to call real life.

(not that annie's entirely sure what the rest of her life prior to that would be called, but she hasn't made any social slip-ups yet, hasn't stumbled her way through a sentence without apologizing in a roundabout way. she's not going to start waxing pseudo-poetic to him now.)

the bow in the back straightened accordingly to what she can feel, annie tentatively approaches the counter, resting her hands on it. really, if she's going to inquire as to the majesties of the world and what's out there, she could do worse than a traveling salesman.

[ she wants to be a part of something, more than anything. part of a unit, part of a team, part of a family - clinging to things so tightly that her fingernails can make claw marks on air, and they do, staying etched when the inevitable happens and they leave.

wanting to be a part of something unravels when she feels suffocated by contact, by emotions, by closeness, when everyone eventually falls short of what she needs, but there's usually been hope in her heart and a strength of will and just think happy thoughts and eventually, they'll come true.

it's been a while. apart from the physical, victoria is empty handed.

she doesn't know whether she would count india as family or close or anything, mostly due to her own discretion, separating her sense from her own fondness of the other woman, and her head does win out. at least, it seems that way when she's packing a bag, tossing things haphazardly into it, small trinkets strewn across her hotel bed.

[India is silent, her back to Victoria and so still she could have been asleep. she listens, and she doesn't like what she hears, what she can guess at from it.

she could be looking for something, India wishes she was looking for something, but she's not and so India doesn't know what she should do other than listen (someone's pacing next door, back and forth and back and-)]


You're leaving.

[she turns over now to face Victoria, still lying on her side. she'll wait as long as she needs to hear a better lie or the truth. either will satisfy her.

why does she care about it, she wonders? why not just pretend to be asleep and let her do what she pleases? it's just letting someone go again, burying them under the garden stones. or it should be.]

I don't know. [ it's sort of an honest answer. she doesn't know why she feels compelled to do this, after all, other than a defense mechanism, some kind of malfunction of her fight-or-flight. she sighs and sits down, facing away from india, hands folded across her lap. ]

[ they don't plant a grave for rumplestiltskin. belle won't let them, for starters (because come hell or high water, she's getting him back), and for others - there's no body. no distinct place other than the streets of the now (supposedly) missing storybrooke to put it. the fact that they're in the midst of traveling presents problems all on its own, and despite the fact that belle is certain that this isn't permanent, there's still a part of her that wants her own solace, a chance to let it settle and devolve into denial, or escalate into motivation. she trusts her instincts, but she's aware of the psychology about it.

and she'll pay her own respects. out of anyone in their merry band of vagabonds, she's one of the ones most qualified, she thinks. she keeps to herself some nights, somehow acquiring a cup of tea within their meager supplies (whether magicked up by someone or simply found in their stash, we just don't know) as she ties together a gathering of flowers she'd found throughout the day. white ones, red roses - she scrapes her finger on one of the thorns, lets out a little noise of pain, and shakes out her finger.

[personal profile] kepthimhuman 2014-03-24 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[His whole life, he's been denied chances to grieve. First his father came home and told him his mother had died, and they spoke no more of it until the neighbors implied that things hadn't really happened that way and his father insisted that she really had died. Then he found out what had actually happened, and he was overwhelmed by anger; anger which has since abated but left him conflicted, about his mother, about Hook, about what his father had done.

Then, just when he had started to have a relationship with his father again, he had lost him too. Now he's left with grief again: for his father, for Emma, for Henry, three people he expects he'll never see again. This time though, he will get his chance to grieve, and no one will take it from him.

He notices what Belle is up to, and knows that while others are mourning the loss of Emma or Henry or both, Belle is likely to only one who feels any sadness at the loss of Rumpelstiltskin.]
He'd appreciate that, what you're doing. I know he didn't always have the best way of showing that he cared, but I can tell he cared about you.

[ she glances upward, not expecting anyone to approach her, really. she hadn't meant to be a disturbance. it's dark. she'd thought they were sleeping, honestly, and there's a sheepish look that comes over her once she realizes that, oops. maybe not. ] He did.

[ it's said fondly, plain and simple. things weren't always easy for them, never what she had come to expect from true love, but perhaps that's what made it all the more enduring. ] If he's gone, he - he died a hero. He saved us. [ and that's what it's all about. that's the struggle, summed up right there, that he'd be willing to do something so brave as sacrifice himself to save everyone says so much, so much more than she could ever say. and he's not here, and she doesn't know when he will be, but she couldn't be prouder. ]

He cared for you, too. [ she looks up at him, that hope ever-present in her eyes. she pats the ground next to her, in case he'd like to sit. ] Everything he did - you were behind it.

I know. [There was so much miscommunication before, about who wanted what, and he really doesn't think he was being too hard on his father about most of it. He doesn't regret trying to find a solution; what he wishes is that he could have found some way to get his father to come with him. He supposes that wasn't really in the cards though. Fate seems to have had a big hand in all of this.

He does wonder how things might be different if he had found his father sooner. Twice he had the chance to go after Emma, and twice he declined, because it would have meant facing his father too, and what he'd done to Emma, and he wasn't ready for that.

He'd been a coward too, up until the day his father showed up in his living room and he couldn't run anymore.

He settles next to Belle.]
I knew it then too, but, well, the things he did. [He's sure that hearing this won't come as a surprise to her, so he has no problems saying it.] He killed people, Belle. No one wants to be fourteen and know that their father is killing people in some misguided attempt to protect them.

[ that smile and that pride settles into something thinner. it's impossible for her not to be aware of rumplestiltskin's past misdeeds - impossible for anyone, and she lets the bouquet of flowers sit in her lap as she sighs. ] "Misguided" is an understatement.

[ her fingers pick at one of the leaves, and yes, she knows. rumple never elaborated on it - especially not to her, but his reputation in the enchanted forest alone is enough for her to fill in the blanks, the way the soldiers had guarded her in her father's war room. ]

I can only imagine what it must've been like, for that - that power to change him at the beginning like that.

[ she doesn't know what possesses her to, but things happen, words catch her eye, and before belle knows it, she's got a stack of dog-eared books at the counter of granny's diner, stacked up high over her head as she scribbles words onto a pad of paper, lines almost elegant in their messiness.

the diner is dimly lit and mostly vacated, the dinner crowd slowly trickling out and being replaced by the likes of those night owls, and belle isn't aware of the hour or the fact that her drink has run dry. she's busy. copying. for some reason. some inspirational spark that she doesn't understand, but she's never seen these books before, and she's not just going to steal them. her favorite lines are ways to keep them with her.

[Books are something he's never found much refuge in. He knows how to read, of course; he wouldn't have been an officer in the navy if he couldn't. He reads charts, and makes notes on charts, and understands the usefulness of the written word. He just doesn't spend much of his spare time indulging in it. One more thing he doesn't understand about her.

He's on his way in, for a drink or two, and takes a seat a few stools down from her at the counter.]

she notices him come in, eyes following him to his stool before she goes back to her work.

A gentleman would get off his stool and help pick the books up, so that's what he does, and restacks them on the counter. He's trying to rehabilitate his image, and he supposes that should even extend to her.]
