[ahem]

Here are some things no one is allowed to mention around me for the next week or so:
- romance
- matchmaking
- masculinity
- animals that live in the ocean
- whatever the hell 'body wash' is

Admiral, you owe me at least a dozen cookies. Freshly baked.

[Private to Judas]
For the record, whatever the hell I was doing back there was genuine and some twisted part of my brain thought it was gonna help. Nothing else, just...wanted to make that clear.

What's wrong with things that live in the ocean? I might live in the ocean.

Nothing, it...ngh, it's a long story.

I have an awful lot of time on my hands. You better not have done anything to my shark.

Your shark's fine. Anything havin' to do with you is fine.

I'm not talking about it.

So you did have something to do with it, for it to end up 'fine'? That's just not right. It's an innocent creature.

Come on, man. It wasn't that bad. Almost as fun as port.

[sigh] Yes, Warren. I killed your shark. I cut him up into itty bitty sushi bits. He's fine sushi. Grade A, even.

...aside from anything happenin' to your fishy friends, what would it take to make you unhappy?

God, someone is taking things a little personally. Makes me think that something pretty embarrasing happened to you during the flood. What, did you end up singing the top twenty greatest romantic hits of the eighties or something?
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:09 am (UTC)
It was a completely normal flood and nothing unusual happened at all.

[realizes he's expecting Warren to read social cues, and comply. Time to lie!]

This is what I do, complain. It's sort of my thing.
warrenwhite

Oh, okay. [Warren actually sounds like he buys it.] Sorry that I jumped on you like that. Does it make you feel better about being on the barge or something?
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:20 am (UTC)
More or less. It...gives me something to do 'stead of just letting it hang in the air like it ain't important. [which is pretty much true anyway]

Plus I hear that if you whine loud enough, you get cookies, and hell if I'm not gonna get compensated somehow.
warrenwhite

I guess that makes sense. Keeps problems in the wardens awareness and all of that.

If you're gonna ask the Admiral for something, you might want to aim a bit higher than cookies. Iroh would probably be able to get the kitchen staff to do a lot of them is you really wanted.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:25 am (UTC)
Change 'wardens' to 'Admiral' and 'awareness' to 'rage against', and then yeah, somethin' like that.

I could get plenty out of my warden, son. It ain't my warden who owes me in spades.
warrenwhite

I don't think that the Admiral is working on a barter system. He gave me my shark without having done anything to me.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:41 am (UTC)
Oh, he does whatever he wants. All the more reason for me to take whatever little foothold I can get. [shrug] You like it here, I don't expect you to understand.
warrenwhite
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:43 am (UTC)
What makes you think that I like it here? Sure, I can handle the floods because they're funny, but it doesn't mean that I want to be here. I want to be at home, in my house, with all my stuff.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 02:12 am (UTC)
...yeah, well, I suppose we all do. You just have a way of lookin' like you're on a picnic.
warrenwhite

[Private]
Yeah, but honestly, I already know that moping isn't gonna help me one bit. If anything, it makes guys more likely to attack you. Smelling fear and all of that.

Anger ain't fear. Folks know what happens if I'm mad enough.

What happens when you get mad?

Re: [Private]
I give them a world of hurt. One way or another.

But only to people who deserve it, right?
amagicalmystery

Heh, ain't you high-minded.

...yeah. If they deserve it. Though more folks do than you'd think.

That's good to know. What kind of people end up deserving it?

...Now you have me wanting something baked.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 12:55 am (UTC)
You want to start a petition? I think we all deserve gift baskets on a regular basis.
dominie
Sep. 5th, 2010 12:57 am (UTC)
As a matter of fact, I do.

...I hope you're aware he might put you know what that you mentioned previously in yours out of spite, so the petition might require some specification.
amagicalmystery

Already thought of it, but I don't expect him to be that charitable. Even with fine print a mile long.
dominie
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:13 am (UTC)
I have an apron and a recipe if you want to give it an attempt.

[amused dismissive noise] Spoils everything if I'm the one doing the work.

I don't think you'll have any problem with people talking about masculinity around you.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:01 am (UTC)
Much obliged, that's just so classy of you.
rayney_day
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:04 am (UTC)
What...? I'm helping!
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 01:05 am (UTC)
And I called you classy. That ain't a bad word in the years since I died, is it?

It doesn't matter.

Didn't expect it to.

Re: Private
I only made a fool of myself on your advice. And now he's left the Barge.

[sigh] Look, does it matter or don't it, because all I mean is if I were gonna bother you again all unprovoked, I'd have been a hell of a lot smarter about it.

And you weren't doin' so fine with him to begin with.

Re: Private
I know that.
amagicalmystery

Re: Private
...relax. You'll find someone else to get all unhealthily obsessed with.

And you won't hear from me again.

Re: Private
I wasn't obsessed.

The cookies he gives you aren't that good really. You're better asking the chicken to come up with something.

...the what now?

...I guess that flood didn't go so well for you.

[private]
I... wanted to thank you. For the singing, back at port. Hearing things that weren't the ghosts was... pretty much all that was keeping me sane. So thank you. I really appreciate it.
amagicalmystery
Sep. 5th, 2010 05:10 am (UTC)
They usually don't - though I suppose I've had worse than just makin' an ass of myself.

[Private]

I ain't used to


It was nothing.
goodgrasshopper
Sep. 5th, 2010 05:29 am (UTC)
Yeah. Seems like that's the least of what we have to deal with with the floods.

[private]
Not from where I was sitting. So--like I said. Thanks.
