There's nothing here for the two of us.

Run Away Together Shipping Meme

The two of you have decided to run away together. Bottom line, you've come up with that plan and you've worked up the guts and the means to do it. The most obvious source of a desire to leave together is a romance you can't have until you're gone from this place. It's like all the eloping that happened in those epics of old. How charmingly beautiful! How romantic! Who says the old ways have gone out of style?

But other reasoning behind the decision could be from the serious - you both want to escape imprisonment, an oppressive atmosphere, or a miserable destiny - to the more lighthearted. Maybe an adventure is just what you need, where you'll finally get to see the world...and, slowly, fall in love. Because that's what the crux of all this is: even if the escape started out as mere convenience, you both want to stay close and work together. In the end, when you've finally run where you want to be and the danger, if any, has passed, you may find you don't want to go your separate ways.

(Needing to escape together probably comes into play before feelings do. Cool with AUs and jamjar settings. No HoF, please.)

[Nina's backstory and current 'canon' point have her in a roaming carnival, filled with people who've been shunning her for years but let her stay and have tolerated her for the sake of the 13-15 year old son she bore one of their members. She's there for the kid. So yeah. Lots of ways to want to run.]

He ducked into her tent, his hood obscuring his face, sitting at the table like just another customer before he pulled the hood back.

"So what does the future hold for me?"
carnival_lights: (Sassy)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-20 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Nina put on her fortune tellers smile, mysterious and coy but it fell away as his hood fell back, to one of shock.

"Callum?" Her hands, already half in the motion of pulling her first card, settled on the table. "Wha-What are you doing here?" No, she doubted he was here for a card reading but she shifted gears and smiled coyly again. "Unless you're really here for my soothsaying skills. Need to know if there's trouble ahead in your life?"

"It's been over a year since we recovered the Piece of Eden," he reminded her, no longer beating around the bush. "Why are you still here?"
carnival_lights: (Blurry)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-20 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
He couldn't have meant here, the physical place, since the carnival moved around and she wasn't going to insult him by playing dumb. Instead, she sighed softly behind a small, polite smile and picked up her cards to shuffle them.

"How did you find me?"

[personal profile] worksinthedark 2017-04-20 12:51 pm (UTC)(link)
A breath huffed through a smirk. "That's what I do."
carnival_lights: (We'll see - smirk)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-20 12:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"You also don't really answer questions. It's been a year." Partly his own words, but she looked up at him from under her eyelashes. "Maybe why is a better question, then."
worksinthedark: (callum serious)

[personal profile] worksinthedark 2017-04-20 01:28 pm (UTC)(link)
"I thought you'd go." He raised his eyebrows slightly. "Why haven't you?"
carnival_lights: (Off work)

One card was set face down between them as she answered. "You know why. My son needs me. This is my life." Another card was set down next to the first. "One day, he won't."

In truth, he didn't need her beyond the way a boy needs his mother. He was strong and strong minded, and Nina was very proud of him but he was far from in diapers or ignorant about their situation. Her situation.

"You can take him with you. He's old enough to choose."

Older than Callum had been when he'd been left without a mother.

A third was set down and she answered just as calmly and evenly as before. "Take him? Where? I've got no family and I haven't had an address in over 15 years. I also have to think about my livelihood."

The cards were set off to the side with a deliberate reverence.

"You're still worrying about me, aren't you," she surmised gently.
worksinthedark: (callum serious)

[personal profile] worksinthedark 2017-04-20 02:55 pm (UTC)(link)
"There are more wheres when you have no address than when you do," he pointed out, deliberately not answering the next question. "I can show you how to live."
carnival_lights: (Wary)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-20 03:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Nina huffed a soft breath with a little smile. "And money? A job? Are you going to show me how to get those too?"

Her heart was racing, but she couldn't let herself entertain such an idea. Surely there were more obstacles than Callum could solve so quickly and easily. She could see that that's what brought him here - worry, but she couldn't figure out quite why.
worksinthedark: (callum serious)

[personal profile] worksinthedark 2017-04-20 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
"What do you want a job for? They're just a means to get money. I know how to get money," he told her.
carnival_lights: (Shadowed)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-20 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
"How's that? If not working, how do you get money?"
worksinthedark: (callum profile)

[personal profile] worksinthedark 2017-04-25 11:03 am (UTC)(link)
"There's money around. I can show you."
carnival_lights: (Painted dancer)

[personal profile] carnival_lights 2017-04-26 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
"Show me, and I'll think about it," she countered. "Since I have a feeling you're not going to stop pushing the idea until I at least look at it."
