At the infamous club...  
Both of his parents would pitch absolute fits if they knew he was here. Even his father, who was generally extremely laid-back when it came to things that his son did. Tobias was, after all, a good kid even if he did stir things up every once in a while.

It was just past eleven, and the club was busy. No one had noticed the teenager who was casually flopped in a chair at one of the back tables yet. He wasn't really doing his best to be noticed, but he wasn't hiding, either.

Only those who were familiar with angelic auras, particularly other angels and demons, would have been able to pick up on his, since he was making an effort to seem human.

"I live to serve," she said, smiling innocently. Teena picked up her drink and sipped it. "What can I say? I'm a helper."

"Fighter said that when he dragged Black Mage over ten miles of rough road to take him to a doctor," Tobias pointed out. "If I needed someone to state the obvious, I could just go talk to Gabriel. And he'd do it in such a nice way, too."

He crossed his arms on the table. "I honestly dunno what I need."
Teenateena_chan on March 25th, 2006 05:54 am (UTC)
"I know that. You think I quote 8-bit by accident?" Teena asked, lips twitching a bit. She set her glass down.

"People rarely actually know what they need, right up until the moment they find it. Just one of those things, I guess."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on March 26th, 2006 02:33 am (UTC)
"I guess."

He sighed and rested his chin on the table.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on March 26th, 2006 06:05 am (UTC)
She reached over and ruffled his hair.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on March 26th, 2006 08:13 am (UTC)
He didn't blink at that. He didn't mind it when people ruffled his hair.

"Sometimes I wish I was normal."
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on March 27th, 2006 12:03 am (UTC)
Teena smiled faintly and shook her head. "Eventually, Tobias, you'll come to realize that there's really no such thing as normal. Plenty of people think normality exists, but they are not in possession of all the facts."

She idly drummed her fingers on the table. "Sometimes I suspect that the only people capable of realizing that there's no such thing as normal are the people willing to admit that they are not normal. Because the people who truly believe that they are normal would have their entire self-image undercut by discovering that."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on March 28th, 2006 04:30 am (UTC)
"Wax on about specifics if you like. What I meant was that I wish I was your average angel, which would make things easier. As it is, I'm different, and there's a reason for that. It amounts to a lot of responsiblity and grief for me in the long run..." He tilted his head. "That's a lot to throw on a kid," he said solemnly.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on March 28th, 2006 06:40 am (UTC)
"Oh, I'm sure. You must be laboring under a terrible burden," Teena said, face carefully straight. Nothing could hide the teasing mirth in her eyes, though.

"The awful, crushing weight of your inescapable destiny and all."

Plus she was waxing eloquent, which she only did when she was making fun.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on March 29th, 2006 07:01 am (UTC)
"Right," he shook his head slightly. "Joking aside, it's not easy being half of one thing and half of another."
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on March 29th, 2006 09:17 am (UTC)
"Neither fish nor fowl, huh?" Teena murmured, lips curving in a wry smile. "Yeah, it's not easy. But when is life ever?"

She had, in an odd way, had it easy, she supposed. All her 'halves' had been of her own creation. She'd done it all to herself, so she'd also been able to undo it.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 3rd, 2006 03:55 am (UTC)
"Not often, I guess."

He smiled. "So what's a bored mostly-angel to do?"
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 3rd, 2006 04:50 am (UTC)
"I wouldn't know," she said, grinning faintly. "I was always far too adept at creating my own 'amusements', so I wasn't often bored. Frequently injured, angsty, or in some other state of crisis, but rarely bored."

She leaned back, pushing her chair so it was balancing on the back two legs, rocking slowly. "...Ever played DDR? I suck at it, but I like it anyway."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 9th, 2006 06:00 am (UTC)
"Thanks, but I'm not generally very keen on the melodramatics," Tobias commented dryly. "As for DDR... No, I haven't, but somehow I doubt that it would keep me occupied for very long," he said, smiling a little.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 11th, 2006 04:34 am (UTC)
"Kids these days, no attention span," she teased, stretching a bit. "Okay, then... Damn, I'm bad at this. You're too young to drink, Mae will murder me if I corrupt your innocent mind, and you're not interested in DDR. This reduces my list of non-melodrama activities to reading, movies, and video games."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 11th, 2006 06:20 am (UTC)
"I'm not too young to drink," Tobias said a bit defensively. "Not that I really see much of a point to it..."
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 12th, 2006 02:55 am (UTC)
"You look too young to drink," Teena replied matter-of-factly. "Not, admittedly, that I would usually care."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 13th, 2006 05:20 am (UTC)
"My age is a moot point," Tobias said decisively. "Still, why drink? It would just get me in trouble."

He propped his chin up on one hand. "So how're the kids doing, anyway?"
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 13th, 2006 07:02 am (UTC)
"Oh, they're doing fine. Happy and energetic, working on this 'mobility' concept," Teena told him, smiling softly.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 14th, 2006 04:37 am (UTC)
"That's good... I'll have to remember to get some cute pictures of them now so I can use them for, er, evidence later," he said, grinning.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 14th, 2006 06:40 am (UTC)
"Evidence: See blackmail," Teena added, with an amused look.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 15th, 2006 05:06 am (UTC)
"Blackmail? What makes you think I'd need blackmail for your children?" Tobias asked innocently.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 15th, 2006 06:46 am (UTC)
"I've met my children," she pointed out dryly. "Yuuhi reminds me disturbingly of myself, so I'd say a person could use every edge they could get with him."

She reached over to tap his nose. "Besides, nobody who's actually innocent makes an effort to seem it."
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 16th, 2006 04:10 am (UTC)
"Unless they were doing it just to throw you off, but I'm not usually that devious," Tobias smiled. "Anyway, I think that I'm going to spend as much trouble getting them into trouble as I am getting them out of it. That's probably not too reassuring, I guess."
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 16th, 2006 05:05 am (UTC)
"I'm resigned to my lot in life. My children will complete the task of turning the front of my hair white. I realize this, and accept my fate. I think I'm beyond reassurance now."

Dry humor colored the words as she propped her chin on one hand.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 17th, 2006 07:29 am (UTC)
"Just the front? Ha."

He tapped his fingers absently on the table. "Life in general will make a person's hair turn grey. Kids just speed up the process, I think. But at least you know that they'll always be loved, and they'll always have people that they can depend on. It's a pretty big family that you've accumulated over here, you know... Maybe you don't realize it, but it's there. Weird, but there."
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 18th, 2006 03:29 am (UTC)
"I know," she replied, smiling a bit. "And I suppose weird is one word for it. But then, I seem to attract 'weird', don't I?"
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 22nd, 2006 04:32 am (UTC)
"Birds of a feather," Tobias replied cheerfully. "It is weird... Huge and it spans dimensions and worlds, and even time. You'll get used to it."

He sighed suddenly. "It's getting late. Maybe I should head back..." He didn't sound terribly convinced, though.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 22nd, 2006 05:12 am (UTC)
"Maybe. Do you want to?"

She finished off her drink.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on April 29th, 2006 07:12 am (UTC)
"Not really, but... I don't know of anywhere else to go," he muttered.

Somewhere he could relax and be himself, without having to be alone, too. He was lonely, he realized, though it was hard to explain why. He had his parents, and the other angels, to a lesser extent.
Teena: Dark angelteena_chan on April 30th, 2006 02:49 am (UTC)
She watched him thoughtfully, then tapped a finger against her cheek lightly.

"...Would you like to come spend the night at my place? You can meet the babies. We can play video games or something. I have better music than they're currently playing here, though I admit that is only my own opinion."

It would be nice to have some company at the house... Company that said things other than 'goo goo gaga'.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on May 3rd, 2006 06:51 am (UTC)
"Really?" Tobias looked a little surprised. He hadn't been expecting that. "Well, sure, I don't see why not."
Teenateena_chan on May 3rd, 2006 07:37 pm (UTC)
"Alright, then," she said, humming a bit as she shoved her chair back and stood up. "My place it is."

She offered him her hand.
Maegan: Tobias2guardian_maegan on May 4th, 2006 03:59 am (UTC)
Tobias stood as well and took her hand.
Teenateena_chan on May 4th, 2006 04:59 am (UTC)
They promptly vanished.
