~forty~ (and to hell with everything)

[Klavier's droned. For good.

Needless to say, Ema's taken the discovery pretty hard. The two of them had been together for over a year after arriving within a few months of each other. Yes, lately things had been strained, but they had been working through it. Klavier was her rock, the man who gave her comfort when the town hit her too hard, the man who held her and assured her that she was brave (if reckless) and was doing the right thing.

He loved her. And she loved him. Loves him.

And now? All of that is gone, ripped out from underneath her. She has no rock, no lover to turn to. Mayfield has, effectively, taken away the most important foundation she has in her network of allies.]


Phone:
Okay, Mayfield. I get it. We're all supposed to be miserable. There's not supposed to be any joy here. Fine.

Lesson learned.

[After a long pause.]

For anyone who knew him: Klavier's been droned.

[And she hangs up.]

A: 1492 Kramden Road
[Ema's only home for coffee and a meal. Both are sitting in front of her, half touched. Her expression is distant, as if she's not really there at all.]

B: in and around 5723 Cunningham Lane
[Ema has already torn through the house once today, tearing through Klavier's belongings in order to discern whether his droning was permanent or not. There's no reason for her to return; it's not like she can simply wish him back. Logically speaking, she's done with the address for now.

And yet, she's hanging around nearby, looking up at the house and sighing heavily as she thinks things over. Occasionally, some impotent anger flares in her and she throws something at the front door. She isn't sure if she's more depressed or more angry, so she's letting herself swing wildly between the two.]


C: John Doe Park
[Ema finally settles in the park, sitting on a park bench and drinking herself stupid. She knows this is a terrible way to react--it's letting the town win, in a way--but she needs to simply sit and be miserable. Tomorrow is for bouncing back and taking action. Today is for drinking until she feels better.

Unsurprisingly, it's not working. Several bottles are scattered on the ground around her. And Ema looks like she's ready to cry. Really, she's wanted to cry all day--it's just that she's finally ready to let herself do so]

C.

[Edward had heard the news over the phone. And... he wasn't entirely sure how he should respond.

Once enough time has passed, though, he decides to set out to try and find her. And find her he does, amidst discarded bottles of assorted drinks in the middle of the park. Given his own family history with the drink, it doesn't give him much comfort to see her like this.]


...Ema.

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-28 06:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Ema looks up at the source of his voice. All things considered, she's not that surprised to find him here. Edward Nigma has a way of always turning up.

For once, it doesn't bother her.]


Edward.

I... you probably don't want to see me like this.

[N likes the park, even if getting to and from said park on a crutch makes him feel a special sort of helpless. It's Purrloin that finds Ema, though, creeping under the bench she's on and sniffing at the emptied bottles, batting at one with his paw and sending it spinning. N is only a little bit behind, but cat Pokémon have no sympathy for the physically disabled.]

Purrloin?

[Ema blinks at the cat sniffing around. It doesn't look like any breed that she knows of, but that fails to surprise her much. After everything else she's learned about other worlds, a purple cat is pretty low on the shock list.

Half-heartedly, she waves her hand at the creature to try and shoo it a little.]


You don't want that.

Hey, lady. Are you okay?

Hi there, Pikachu.

[Knock knock on your door, Ema. If you don't answer, Scout's just letting himself in.]

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-28 09:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ema hears the knocking and gets up to answer the door. Her expression softens a little when she sees who's there.]

Checking up on me?

[Heavy sigh as she plays with the ring on her right ring finger.]

I will be. I just need a bit of time to... deal.

My boyfriend was droned. It seems like it's permanent.

[He'd heard the message. And had spent a while trying to decide how best to respond. He'd come up with nothing at all.]

[So... instead. He decides he should go try to find her. Not that he remembers where she lives, but as the Corvette pulls out onto his street, he realizes that's not exactly a problem. She's just down the road, out in front of a house.]

[He slows to a stop, behind her, letting the engine idle.]

[Ema hears the car pull up and turns around to see who it is. She's not surprised to find the Corvette idling there.]

Hey, Sideswipe.

I guess you heard?

Klavier's gone.

The question of joy here is immaterial. The important thing is to get people home.

To get everyone home.

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-28 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
I know that's the important thing.

But... it's hard to keep morale when they drone the people closest to you. That's all.

[Schuldig's gait is usually a casual saunter, moving as though he isn't worried about when or how he's going to get where he's going, isn't sure where that might be, and isn't concerned about anything that might get in his way. For one reason or another, though, he strides into the kitchen today as though he has some specific purpose.

...which he expresses by idly stealing a few pieces of food off Ema's plate as he moves past her to get coffee. Some things are a comfortable constant.]


So he's gone. [The statement is, for Schuldig, a surprisingly neutral one, albeit blunt as hell. He's apparently not interested in helping her hide from it...although that he's not actively working this thorn deeper into her side is interesting in its own way.]

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-28 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ema doesn't even try to swat his hand away--which, if she had been feeling better, she would have done purely out of instinct. It's indicative of how distracted she really is.]

Yeah, he is.

No commentary?

What? Being angry? Being hurt?

I know I'm giving them what they want. But I'm not going to pretend that I'm not upset by all of this.

[Bruce wasn't normally one to grow concerned about people, but Ema didn't usually miss work, so Bruce had set out to find her.

His gaze fixes for a moment on the discarded bottles of liquor on the grass. Totally unfazed, he simply walks up and sits down next to Ema.

Wordlessly, he reaches into the breast pocket of his suit and offers Ema a neatly folded handkerchief.]


It's okay to cry, Ms. Skye.

[He's not sure what's going on, as he normally isn't one for telephones. He also figures that whatever's bothering her is probably none of his business.]

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-30 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Ema blinks at Bruce as he sits, surprised that he's sought her out like this. After a few moments, she takes the handkerchief and wrings it in her hands.]

It... doesn't solve anything.

[Even so, she looks like she'll burst into tears any second.]

Ema....[Yeah, he heard the phone call. Zidane had no idea who Klavier was but seeing the bottles on the ground, it was clear that he was at least someone very important to Ema and had Zidane known what relationship Ema had with Klavier, he would have related, having to deal with the fact that his own girlfriend is still a drone.]

[identity profile] glowing-science.livejournal.com 2011-06-30 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
[Ema's head pops up at the voice.]

Oh, Zidane.

Hi. I guess you heard the phone call...? Either that, or you're really confused by all this.
