[Facilier comes on screen looking slightly amused. In spite of his words, though, there's something unusual about his expression, to those who know him - something a little less smug, but not the rage that usually replaces the smugness, either. It's almost genuinely thoughtful.

He's also wearing this, without a hint of self-consciousness.]


I was just thinking, I never did show off my costume to y'all. S'got a good cut to the suit, I think it's flattering.

We've all been doin' a lot of talking 'bout our feelings, haven't we? Even I've gotten in on the act. It's so easy to get caught up in all the squabbling and the blame, and do a lot of well-meaning talk 'bout fixing things. Or people.

I've said it before, though: the Wardens didn't bring us here. The Wardens didn't decide how this place would be run, or what new tricks would get played on us every week or so. Most of 'em are insufferable, and they're no better than us, but they don't decide whether we come or go.

The Inmates didn't bribe you heroic types to a place where you'd play scapegoats, or get yourselves violated or tortured in the name of helpin' someone else who don't always want the help. I doubt you were warned it'd happen to you, either - the zombis, say, or that fine little haunted house...

So who's to blame here? Don't mind me if you'd rather not talk 'bout the answer. I'm just thinkin' out loud, more or less.

[Private to Coyo]

I'm interested.

Though I've got questions and details to sort out, first.

I thought you weren't talkin' to me.

I hated it probably as much as you did.

It sounds like you've got some stories I haven't heard. Care to share? [ Yeah, she's still sort of considering quitting :| ]

Ah, that's right, you weren't around for either of them were you?

I'll start with my favorite. We pull in port with invitations to some rich fool's birthday party. Inmates have to pretend to be someone else. What we learn, real quick, is that the house the party's at is alive and wants us dead. Our wardens are locked in the basement. Which is haunted.

We start to get voices over the communicators. Wardens being tortured. Or slowly drowned. We all wander around looking and playing rescuers. There's prayers to several gods. Gets downright touching at some parts.

Once I found Iroh, our job was to find his item and use it to open a door and get out. Whole time after I reach him, there's things taunting me. Trying to get me to leave without him. I don't know if he saw them, or something else, but I've never see the man be anything but dead calm 'til that night.

Some folks forgot parts of it - mainly the ones who got a death toll. I didn't, though.

I missed the zombies, but I remember the haunted house pretty clearly. It wasn't exactly in the brochure.

I'd imagined not.

Compared to the house, the zombies...well, I know a lot of folks around here who can fight, and I know that death isn't permanent. It's different. But still not what y'all sign up for.

I don't know what a 'blog' is, but I'm gonna guess both.

Heh, well thank you. No reason I can't look snazzy while makin' a point.

I'm starting to wonder if there's reason to think... everyone's got reason to get out of here, don't we?

you also have to ask yourself why they do hang around, though. That answer might be as unpleasant as the answer to the question you're asking.

Oct. 25th, 2010 01:19 am (UTC)
What I told that one warden's the truth. Digs are better here than back home most days. But there's some of us who'd rather be dead, I know. And whenever we pull into port...

That's a fine question. We've seen enough Wardens leave to know they can. Sometimes whether they want to or not.

I'd certainly like to know exactly what they're hanging around here. Because we don't have a choice.

Might be one worth asking, at some point.

We probably all share a little of the blame for everything. Warden, inmate, it doesn't matter.

If we fail...my brothers do not come. They remain in the sky. Out of reach.

[Facilier waited about five minutes after he received the note, so their meeting up would seem like more of a coincidence, and then he slipped out of his room and walked to the library. He casually sauntered among the books, trying to hide how he was looking between the rows and at the tables for the other inmate.]
