The holidays are making me nostalgic.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

Vodka sometimes helps.
bitterguardian: (amused)

[He blinks at her blankly for just a moment, taken completely by surprise.]

You... didn't have to... I mean, thank you! [Horvath flounders for his manners abruptly, accepting the bottle. He just may use that to get through the holidays.]
bitterguardian: (joking around)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 03:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Merely a Merlinian's duty... [He tries to wave it off, but any actual gesturing is hampered now that he's got both hands occupied.]

I was... just lucky to meet someone so well worth knowing, through that.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 03:56 pm (UTC)(link)
You're welcome my dear. [He's flattered and just a little flustered. 'Thank you' isn't something he hears enough of.]

Not... everyone is so appreciative.
bitterguardian: (chubbycheeks grin)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[He laughs at that.] I didn't think thanking me was what she had in mind. And I'm an old man, but I'm not sure that's done much for my manners...
bitterguardian: (laugh animated)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 04:25 pm (UTC)(link)
That does sound like something to be grateful for. [He smirks a little.] I've never enjoyed being stabbed.

Thank you. It's such a nuisance to have to check for poisons before one uncorks the bottle...

... Why, has he been, recently? [Horvath's had his share of fights, although he doesn't make a career out of it quite the way Wade does.]

I haven't received many? Not that I'm complaining.
bitterguardian: (hurt)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
...Good lord. Does he need healing? [One eyebrow rises.]
bitterguardian: (wibble)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 06:33 pm (UTC)(link)
... Ah.

[He shifts his weight a little, leaning on the cane, and struggles for something to say.]

...That's good. That he heals, I mean.
bitterguardian: (seriousface2)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 06:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[Another blink, because this isn't the sort of information he expected at all. Perhaps her husband has some good reasons for being a mess, and insecurity about one's appearance is something Horvath can relate to.]

I'm... sorry. We all bear these things as best we can, I suppose. I didn't know he had cancer.
bitterguardian: (uncertainty)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
No... cancer is a tricky one, and even magic has yet to find a proper cure that's worth the price. Perhaps if it was caught very early, but it so rarely is...

[Not that thinking of things like that encourages Horvath to go see a doctor, either.]
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 07:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[He smiles weakly.] If it's any consolation, I haven't been in ages. All they ever do is tell me to lose weight, anyhow.

And then I have to change doctors a few years later so they don't start to notice I'm barely aging...
bitterguardian: (skeptical)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-12-09 07:47 pm (UTC)(link)
It's getting to be more difficult, as society keeps better track of people. I'll have to forge an ID sooner or later, I suppose. I don't have a social security number or a birth certificate... the calendar isn't even the same as it was when I was born.
