Bizarre requests just before closing time...

"What would you recommend? I don't actually know what most of those words mean," he explains sheepishly, pointing to the menu boards.

His grip on English has grown pretty good, but it's still gibberish to him, and he's pretty sure not all the words up there actually are English, which doesn't help.

(ooc: welcome to Dreamwidth! *hugs* glad to see you made the transition :)

He doesn't understand what an Irish coffee is, or what caffeine is, and, again, one of those words is definitely not English. His twelve languages are just not enough here. But he does pick up on one word, and smiles brightly.
"You can never go wrong with chocolate."

(*pets you* it's okay *hugs* moving is crazy. I fully understand. Sorry, but I won't be able to tag on LJ until later tonight. I'm at work now and, for some reason, I can't log on to LJ from my tablet, only Dreamwidth. So I'll tag back as Komaru on my breaks, but we'll have to wait on James.)

"Thank you, I never say no to free food." Komaru laughs and smiles at him, taking the drink and the food and staring down into his cup with a surprised smile. "You're an artist!"

(ooc yay for internet :D hopefully it stays on for you *hugs* I had an okay day. just got home from work a little while ago so... yeah ;p but, other than that, doing good. Skateboarding and chocolate beer sound fun. Looks like you had good weather, too, not too hot #stalker)

"What's a 'teletubbie'?"

(ooc: haven't decided what to get for dinner yet, lol. munching on pistachios now because why not? :D the beer sounds delicious. I wonder if they make a chocolate hard cider since I can't drink beer. or caramel? i'll bet a caramel hard cider would be divine :D

Komaru stares at the sketch for a moment before declaring, "I think, if such a creature approached a child I was responsible for, I would stab it between the shoulder blades..."

(Ooc: I'm not able to open that link. Will try again later from home)

"Fire, then? That tends to work well on unnatural creatures..."

"Are they friendly creatures, then? I suppose 'death by fire' is a little extreme when its only crime is looking different. I hereby rescind my suggestions for destroying them."

"Oh, I'm from all over. Mostly, though, I suspect it just comes from living rough most of the time. I don't exactly have a normal home with normal things..."

(ooc: so sorry! I don't know how I missed this tag *hugs*)

"A few months now. Thank you," he adds, picking up the other muffin and taking a bite. "It's a nice place so far. Plenty of odd jobs to do while I get the lay of the land."

(ooc: must be. the site was doing so much better than LJ, too... I have noticed, though, that when you receive replies to multiple threads on the same post, they tend to collapse into a single email on gmail, so maybe it's to do with that)

"A fresh start? You could say that. I didn't mean to end up here, but the gods had other plans and it's up to me to make the best of it..."

(Ooc: I may not be able to tag as James again for a few days. Workmen cut our internet cable accidentally and no home internet means no LJ access. Tagging from Wendy's now, and will be able to tag from work on DW, at least. But I want my effing internet back!!!)

The accent is like nothing that exists on Earth, although it might be mistaken for a strange strain of Japanese if you failed to notice that the man speaking with it looks entirely European. Komaru smiles at him.

"There's nothing to do but make the best of life. I could be in a much worse place," he points out, and he means that literally. He's heard of planes that people from this world might mistake for a literal Hell. He was lucky to end up on one not unlike his own. "I miss my old friends, but who knows? Maybe I'll see them again some day."

(ooc: we have a temporary line now, so on-and-off service for the next 10 days, then they'll be able to lay a permanent line. I'll take "on and off" over none at all ... PS, writing a new Will/Magnus fic at someone's request after reading a fic on mine on AO3: dom!Will/sub!Magnus, lol. Thank the gods there's more to real D/s relationships than kinky sex. Will actually does Dom quite well. I'm surprised, lol)

"It seems unlikely. Travelling here wouldn't be very easy for them, and they might end up as stuck here as I am. Still, there are always new friends to make and old ones to cherish fondly." Tilting his head a bit, he adds, "And why would you find it difficult to make friends? You seem decent enough..."

(ooc: it's a little surprising at first blush, but it also makes a kind of sense. He's always been one to dig in and get stubborn when she's in need of taking care of, and this is just an extension of that. Magnus needs a night of NOT being in charge, so Will gives it to her. In more ways that one ;) it's actually fairly sweet so far)
