[ WOW WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY

haha no let's go with something easier]


You're always so jumpy around Hogswatch. Any particular reason?
goodoldsue: (Biting on my tongue)

[ She's not exactly adverse with talking about it, but having to censor most of the story hasn't made it easy.

Not to mention that it's a day for family, and well, they don't always get on. Those of them who are still around, that is. ]


It was something that happened several years ago, my grandfather had to step in for the Hogfather because the Auditors don't know when to leave well enough alone.

I ended up being pulled into the middle of it all, since being human [ mostly, ] will always let you get to places some other forces can't.

[ He probably could have looked up the details, to be honest, but somehow it just seems... rude. Still, he nods like she's confirming something for him (mostly just that she knows her way around trouble). ]

And you think it could happen again?
goodoldsue: (From a distance)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
They're not the type to just give up, but it'll be sometime before they try again, I'll reckon.

They've got to regroup after the failure with the glass clock.

You plan to be helping out the next time?
andtimes: (to see if i could)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
It depends on if I can. There are all these, you know, rules. [ AWKS. It's an honesty meme. ]

I... well, I would want to. Was there any question of that?
goodoldsue: (Biting on my tongue)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
[ A nod. She's very familiar with that, not that she has to do that sort of work full time. ]

No, but it's better to ask. There have been so many times when one question could have saved a lot of aggravation.
andtimes: (it is written)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
[ He grins like he's been caught out. ] Sounds wise. In that case, I believe I have a question for you as well.

Do you have plans for the turn of the year?
goodoldsue: (Inconvenient questions)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
I was going to stop by my grandfather's. [ He'll be happy, and they're getting along better now.

Also, it's a way to make sure he doesn't try too hard at it. He does go overboard, and misses the mark. Albert can't wrangle him by himself. ]


I have a free evening.
andtimes: (universal tick)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
[ Straightfaced. ] Would you be interested in spending it with me? I believe I'll be able to get some, ah, time off. And I- I would like to see you. Then.
goodoldsue: (That was cute)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
[ There's an amused cast to her face. She's always appreciated puns. ]

I don't see why not, barring an emergency.
andtimes: (unteachable)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
[ He lights up like he genuinely thought she might turn him down. ]

Great! I haven't been to an Ankh-Morpork new year's in ages. Er, or ever, depending. And don't worry, Mom already warned me about the baby.

[[ooc: ack i promise i'm not surprise babying your pup. that would be terrible. ]
goodoldsue: (Weapon of choice: poker)

No worries.

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ She doesn't really have all that many options, when it comes down to it.

Childhood crushing aside, she would rather not have to lie to a potential partner especially since a normal life seems to be beyond her. ]


Getting a little ahead of yourself, aren't you?

[ Let's just work on the linear timeline. One second at a time. ]
andtimes: (irregularities)

it made sense in my head and then it fell apart

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
[ So so mortified. ]

The- the baby that shows up when- You know, when the old year is leaving. And replaces him. Or eats him? I think it's a metaphor but- I mean, I'm tangentially involved oh my god-

I'm just going to. I'll just. Stop talking now.

[ When he takes the time to think about it, he'll appreciate how calm her reaction was. ]
goodoldsue: (What? I only had the one)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 04:01 am (UTC)(link)
[ She would laugh, but that's not exactly nice, is it? Biting back the grin, she looks down until she's schooled her features into a sterner expression. ]

Do they really wrestle?

And do you have to officiate?
andtimes: (it is written)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
[ He appreciates her restraint because he just might die. ]

I think I only have to step in if the baby looks like it will lose. But Mom says that hardly ever happens and that she'll cover for me this year. [ ... He gives in to embarrassment and covers his face with his hands. Muffled, ] I think she liked that bit.
goodoldsue: (Disorganized mess)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
It has to be some sort of milestone, parents embarrassing their children.

[ Sighs. ]

Is she making up for lost time, I wonder? I'm sure that you can imagine worse. It does come in handy, how you can be everywhere at once.

andtimes: (perfect moment)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
[ Good punning, Susan. He smiles a little, hands still up. ] Not anymore than you can. [ Where it is technically possible and will never happen. ] Anyway, even if she's taking care of it, we still might come across them. Is there anything on your end we might need to watch out for?
goodoldsue: (Biting on my tongue)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
If there is, we'll know about it. You have meet Quoth and the Death of Rats before? Even if you haven't, they're hard to ignore.

andtimes: (sundial)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
Something to look forward to, then.

Well, I still have a handful of questions, but I think I'll save them for year's end when there isn't reinforced honesty. Do you have any for me?
goodoldsue: (From a distance)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[ She opens her mouth, and pauses. Considering.

How are you is somewhat unfair, and any serious question shouldn't have a forced answer, she agrees. ]


Only one: How do you feel about nougat?

andtimes: (universal tick)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not fond, but it doesn't ruin a good kiss.

[ CAN I KISS YOU GOODBYE MISS SUSAN what a brat ]
goodoldsue: (That was cute)

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 05:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ Damn, there goes a chance to foist the nougat centered chocolates onto someone else.

Shrugging, she takes half a step forwards, brow arched. ]


And?

[ He could, but she'll make him work for it. ]
andtimes: (remember everything)

[personal profile] andtimes 2014-12-30 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
[ Nice try. No one likes nougat. The single woman in the world who may have been an exception drowned herself in nougat-less chocolate. ]

And so not all my memories of it are terrible.

[ He wants to ask her if they are really a thing but he really really doesn't want to ask her if they are a thing. Instead, he reaches out and sort of... cups her face gently, eyes searching. ]

May I?
goodoldsue: (What? I only had the one)

Appropriate icons, what?

[personal profile] goodoldsue 2014-12-30 03:27 pm (UTC)(link)
It doesn't make it taste any better.

[ It's unfortunate so many good chocolates had to be ruined by it.

She rests her hand on his shoulders, nodding slightly, the thought that certain people may have already known this was coming flickers briefly; but that's neither here and now.

Closing the distance between them, she presses her mouth to his. If there's an undercurrent of irritation to her actions - well, there often is. Though it definitely is not because of the kiss. ]

somehow it seems fitting
