caught in the rain.
( mood )


It started out quietly—and then, out of nowhere, you're caught in a storm. Time to find cover. Nothing much to do but to wait it out.

Scenarios listed below for those who want 'em.

i WHERE:
001 PLAYGROUND - Well, you can try to hide under the slide or maybe in the jungle gym ... at least you're somewhere fun?
002 PARK - You try and take advantage of the weather and it ends up pulling a fast one on you. Happens every time.
003 STORE FRONT - Better hope they have an awning.
004 THE BEACH - Not exactly the best place to be during a rainstorm, don't you think?
005 WILD CARD - Anywhere you want it.

ii HOW:
001 TREE - Not the best cover, but it'll have to do, stay close to the roots and you won't get too wet.
002 UMBRELLA - Most conventional ... kinda boring. But it works.
003 NEWSPAPER - Not permanent, but it'll have to do. Good luck.
004 BAG - Well ... y'gotta do what you gotta do.
005 NONE - You know what. Colds are for the weak and the boring. You're a rebel. You don't need cover.
006 WILD CARD - If that's the way you need it.

iii WHY:
001 REJECTED - You're not crying. It's just raining on your face.
002 WAITING - For the bus? For someone else? For some revelation?
003 MELANCHOLY - Sometimes the best place to feel a bit down is out in the rain.
004 HAPPINESS - Is everything going your way? Are you singing a refrain while walking down the lane? Just singing. Singin' in the rain.
005 ANGER - WELL YOU KNOW WHAT. SCREW YOU TOO, RAIN.
006 WILD CARD - Think fast.

It's late afternoon on a Thursday, distant bells ringing out four times before Rosemary crosses the sidewalk. The sky above bleeds out watercolor grays and milky whites, and the prospect of an impending storm seems to have kept many at home. There's no telling when the bottom might fall out, however, with the weather channel giving some noncommittal warning as she finished a breakfast of strawberries and chausson aux pommes. Better to brave the day dusted with sugar, she thinks, and anyway, there are errands to be run. Now with one arm nursing a paper bag filled with fruit from the farmer's market, Rose has one thing to X off her to-do list tucked in her dress pocket, lined with her classic cursive slopes and scrawls. Truthfully there isn't much left for her to do until her list is finished, all levels complete for player one. So there's no harm, really, in a bonus round. The boutiques and storefronts in the city center always provide ample opportunities for window shopping, which is just what she intends to do. In bakery windows there are visions of confection, drizzled in chocolate, filled with crème, cherry on top. Other windows offer glimpses of silk blouses and gowns of lace, or books to be read, or trinkets to be bought, or items to be pawned.

She remembers that she forgot to bring an umbrella right as the rain wets her curls, heavy drops streaking down store windows with fervor. The first word out of her mouth is a swear at the sudden chill, perhaps more of scream-mixed-with-swear if such a word exists, perhaps not in Webster's but maybe somewhere in the deep web, and then a loud laugh. Right on time as long as one doesn't check the weather channel, isn't it? Sundress plastered to her skin and sandals sopping, she splashes into a small puddle that has formed where the gutter runs along the sidewalk, tidal wave of water hitting her bare legs, and then remembers that the bag she's carrying is paper and likely to fall apart any moment now. There are several awnings over the aforementioned windows, and this is where Rose and her bag of peaches and melons decide to take shelter, pushing the mess of damp hair out of her eyes with another laugh.

( as is shiori! ☺)

Ruby loves a good rain storm. She especially loves the way people tend to scurry for shelter and the streets clear out, leaving behind the stragglers that don't mind getting wet or have no shelter to turn to.

It was late and the roads were virtually empty, save for the occasional car passing by and a stray dog wandering between one terrace and another. Ruby is standing by the side of the road, an umbrella and thick coat her only protection from the downpour. For all intents and purposes, she looks lost in thought.

The slight tilt to her head is the only thing that gives away that there's more to it than simply savouring the rain. Over the noise, Ruby can hear the tell-tale thud of a steady heartbeat but she can't place exactly where it's coming from.

[ There is something about rain. Something that appeals to the senses, that stirs an undescribable mood in the atmosphere. The steady sound of it pattering against the roof, the fresh fragrance it leaves behind; something that makes that bout of melancholy Yusuke's struck with feel rather apropos, something that makes that it a tool to be used for inspiration, when he needs it.

Something that makes being stuck at LeBlanc at 9 PM terribly inconvenient.

Yusuke's expression as he stares distantly through the window into the pouring rain is the very essence of Woe Is Me. The fact is that while the cafe is a lovely place that he enjoys spending his time in, it's still not the student dorms at Kosei. Being here in itself is all well and good, but having to choose between staying here until god knows when, waiting for some sign that it'll let up (which might not happen at all) and trying to go out there with nothing but his bag for cover is another matter entirely. His bag, which, considering all that's in it, Yusuke doesn't particularly want to expose to the amounts of water it'll be shielding him from, should he attempt to walk to the nearest station.

And it's getting late. Very late. God knows when it and if it will let up, and should it stop, if the train will still be running by the time it does, or if he can even afford waiting... ]


Well, then. [ In a mild, thoughtful tone, not quite befitting the tragic countenance with which he stares into the window as if in deep contemplation of life's mysteries. ] It seems I have two options. The first is to risk damage to all the material possessions currently on my person in exposing them to the rain, some of which are likely to sustain permanent damage...

[ A glance towards Akira. ] And the second is to further take advantage of your hospitality, and become an inconvenience. [ A sigh. Oh, now he really sounds tragic. ] Fate is truly a cruel mistress, to test me so.

[ Gamora doesn't end up spending the night in Peter's bed — or at least, not all of it. She manages to wriggle out when he's deeply asleep (and she checks first, nudging him to see if she gets more of a response than a snore), but before she leaves his quarters, she makes sure there's water and painkillers by his bed, both of which she's sure he'll want in the morning. He may have earned however terrible he'll feel when he wakes up, but that doesn't mean she wants him to suffer entirely for it.

Just a little.

She also decides not to mention the night before or the time in his bed or the near-kiss or... any of it. "If you can remember tomorrow," had been the stipulation, after all, and she's not going to remind him. Instead, she waits for the ungodly hangover he brought on himself to pass, waits for some mention of the night in the Quardrant's rundown bar, but—

It doesn't come.

(Strange, she thinks, that she almost finds that disappointing.

Almost?)

But Gamora is a woman of her word, and the bargain was perfectly clear. She doesn't mention it — but she does throw him a little harder than usual the next time they train.



Which brings them to a week later, when waiting for a contact on a very rainy planet proves to be less fruitful than expected.

Kreilon-Beta, home of the largest rainforest in the sector, boasts a total of four sunny days per continent. According to the meteorological scanners on the Quadrant, the day they're set to meet their Kreilonian contact happens to be one of those particular days, bound to make their lives infinitely easier. No flying in the heavy storms or hiking in the pouring rain to reach the otherwise-inaccessible rendezvous point.

"I don't see why this jerk can't just meet us at a restaurant or somethin' like normal people," Rocket had groused as they climbed aboard the Milano in the Quadrant's hangar.

"He is putting himself at great risk meeting with us at all, Rocket," Gamora explained with a decent level of exasperation.

Also true. The Kreilonian happened to be handing over information to the Guardians with the whereabouts of a Kreilonian mobster who'd been a thorn in the Nova Corps' side for far too long at this point, and now they needed to get the information, get their hands on the mobster, and call it a job well done.

Unfortunately, it quickly becomes apparent that trusting the weather forecast was not in their best interests, because almost as soon as they touchdown on the planet's surface in a grassy clearing, thunder can be heard overhead. The Milano's engines power down, and the first raindrops hit the viewshield, and a collective groan runs through the ship. This is obviously already far more typical of their usual work.

Once out of the ship and after a comm check, Peter and Gamora start off through the trees towards the meeting point. Drax, Rocket, and Groot stay near the ship, though there's a brief moment where Groot tries to leap off of Rocket's shoulder to follow Peter and Gamora. With some gentle coaxing, Groot allows himself to be corralled back to other Guardians, and Gamora starts leading the way from the clearing, her eyes focused on the screen of the small navigation tablet they brought along with the map of their destination.

She doesn't end up being especially forthcoming with conversation on the way. She keeps looking at the map and the small, blinking light that signals their position relative to the rendezvous, but the farther they walk, the heavier the rain starts to be. A few drops turns into a drizzle, which soon becomes a shower, and by the time her hair is plastered against her face and her clothes are soaked, the storm has proceeded into a full-on downpour.

Finally, it's raining so heavily, the storm overhead so damned thick, that the navigation display starts to flicker. Gamora stops, frowning as she pushes wet hair from her face, and then gives the tablet a few taps. The screen flickers once, twice, and—

—suddenly displays "NO SIGNAL" in obnoxiously large, red letters. ]


... Really?

[ With a short, frustrated noise at the back of her throat, she reaches out for Peter's jacket sleeve to tug him in the direction of one of the only sources of cover: a large, thoroughly-mossy tree with thick enough branches to block some of the rain. She needs to see if anything can be done about the navigation, and that will be much easier out of the rain.

(As much as they can manage, at least.) ]
