Monthly Word Association



Word Association is a common word game involving an exchange of words that are associated together. The game is based on the noun phrase word association, meaning "stimulation of an associative pattern by a word" or "the connection and production of other words in response to a given word, done spontaneously as a game, creative technique, or in a psychiatric evaluation."

That... applies to way too many people.

Um. Comrades.

What's that, then?

The Howling Commandos. My old squad in the war.

Ah. I'd guessed you a military man, but you can't always be sure, can you?

[ Occasionally people have that look about them. Occasionally they don't. This guy doesn't, but maybe Billy doesn't either. ]
hydras_arm: focused (Focused)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-16 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I was. Then I was... something else.

My, doesn't that sound ominous. You've got me curious now.
hydras_arm: Bullshit. (This is bullshit.)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-16 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Wan't trying to. [He sighs. If he has the look of a soldier, it may be closer to the look of a POW.]

It's a long story. Not pleasant. I'm my own man, now.

[ No need to be so cruel, he thinks. There's no battlefield here.

Well, that's lucky. I didn't think any of us would qualify as that ever again.
hydras_arm: focused (Focused)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-16 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[He considers that, because lucky is the last thing he usually thinks he is, but it's a fair point.]

Hoping I can hold onto it.

Maybe your luck will hold out.
hydras_arm: skeptical face (Do what now?)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-16 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe.

[Not a natural optimist, this guy.]

Never been sure I believe in luck.
fissure: little-luna @ hollow-art (2)

[personal profile] fissure 2017-04-16 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
That makes two of us. Unless it's bad. Then I believe in that.

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-16 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
[Snort. Okay, that's acceptable.]

Not sure how fair that is, but I think I agree.
fissure: little-luna @ hollow-art (Default)

[personal profile] fissure 2017-04-17 12:40 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not sure I believe in fair either.

[ And yet he chuckles. ]
hydras_arm: shy smile (Shy smile)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-17 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
I know a guy who believes in fairness enough for the both of us.

[personal profile] fissure 2017-04-17 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
Promising.

[ He's got a toothy grin now. It feels like that's been dangled like bait. Blood in the water, right? ]

Should I be getting to know him instead?
hydras_arm: Did you mean to do that? (Welp.)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-17 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
If you want. He's a good guy. But also a big dumbass, so...
fissure: little-luna @ hollow-art (8)

[personal profile] fissure 2017-04-17 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
What qualifies him for the "big dumbass" title?
hydras_arm: rolling my eyes at you (srsly tho?)

[personal profile] hydras_arm 2017-04-17 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
You want a list? We'd be here all day. He believes in fairness so much he puts his face between bullies fists and people who can't stand up for themselves, for one. And did that even when he was ninety pounds soaking wet and asthmatic.

That sounds incredibly close to hero worship.

[ And the affectionate nature — calling a good guy a dumbass for doing the The Right Thing — only solidifies the impression. Prior doesn't imagine he'd personally have it in him to think that highly of anyone, but then names start filling in spaces in his head and he aims to shift the focus away from that part of himself. ]

Did he stand up in front of your bullies?
