*whistles*  
Tim was wiping down the bar, whistling to himself as usual. The usual night crowd was beginning to file in and the dance floor was already busy. The bartender listened idly to the general chatter, none of which was particularly interesting so far, but you never knew when something might come up later.

Zero wandered over to slide into a seat at the bar.

"Hey there, Tim. How's it going?" He asked, glancing over at the bartender with a slight grin. He'd actually taken off his sunglasses for once. His amber-colored eyes looked normal at a first glance, but there was definitely something a little odd about them.

"Z-man!" Tim grinned and walked over to give Zero a friendly slap on the arm. "Long time no see, where the hell have you been?"
tech_rebel on April 22nd, 2006 07:02 pm (UTC)
"Just about everywhere," Zero replied wryly. "You haven't been getting into too much trouble, have you?"
_zaelia_ on April 22nd, 2006 07:06 pm (UTC)
"Me?" Tim looked surprised as he picked up a glass and poured some vodka into it. "Nah. I'm a bartender, I serve drinks... How much trouble could I get into doing this? And that's about all I've been up to, really."

"I haven't been having any luck with the ladies lately," he added with a sigh.
tech_rebel on May 2nd, 2006 08:22 am (UTC)
"Really? That's a shame. A real shame." Zero grinned. "Maybe I can try to help you with that after I get back to work as the D.J. I don't know who is doing your music now, but I think they're tone-deaf."
_zaelia_ on May 3rd, 2006 07:06 am (UTC)
Tim gracefully ignored the implied teasing. "The D.J.? Yeah, well, he puts on music, people dance. I guess they don't care so much as long as it's got a good beat. Still, you've got much better taste... Obviously, or I wouldn't have had you working for me in the first place." He laughed. "So, yes, you can have your job back, not that you even asked. Please. Your old room's just as you left it."

"Looks like I've got work to do," he said, glancing down the bar. "I'll catch up with you in a bit. In the meantime, try not to monopolize the ladies," Tim said, winking before heading off.

Shade didn't interrupt the conversation going on at the other side of the bar. She just slid onto one of the stools and crossed her arms on the bar with a sigh, slumping a bit more than usual. Tim would take a hint sooner or later and bring her some alcohol.
_zaelia_ on May 5th, 2006 08:28 pm (UTC)
Tim wandered over, bringing a glass of amaretto with him.

"You look bummed," he observed as he set the glass down on the bar. "Anything you want to talk about, or are you gonna let me make a few guesses?" He grinned faintly.
Shadeshadows_of_grey on May 6th, 2006 07:01 am (UTC)
"Don't make me hurt you, Tim." She paused to take a drink. "It's nothing in particular. Just a lot of little things that add up to me feeling like I have a pretty pitiful existence going on here."
_zaelia_ on May 8th, 2006 07:57 am (UTC)
"Oh, oh, let me guess," Tim propped an elbow up on the bar, and proceeded to tick off things on his fingers. "Your job is sucky, though that's nothing new. You're bored, but you know better than to complain about it. And you look hungry."
Shadeshadows_of_grey on May 8th, 2006 08:06 am (UTC)
Shade was impressed. Although Tim was very perceptive, he had far too much fun annoying the hell out of people at times. She knew exactly what he would be most likely to tease her about...

His saving grace was often the fact that he had alcohol. He also could kick anyone out at any time for any or no reason, though she'd never actually seen him do such a thing. Somehow she didn't doubt that he could, though.

"You may possibly be right," she admitted. "I'm not angsting or anything, before you get that idea. I just need a drink or two. Or ten. That's all."
_zaelia_ on May 8th, 2006 08:15 am (UTC)
"Gotcha." Of course it wasn't angsting. It was brooding. He refilled her glass. "I don't think that ten's a good idea. Maybe five or six. Last time you drank too much when you were hungry, you ended up eyeing Crowley like he was a piece of meat or something. Not that he seemed to mind." He tilted his head. "So, what, now that he's hooked up with the Aziraphale downtown, he doesn't want to feed you anymore, or was it just a one-time thing to begin with?"
Shadeshadows_of_grey on May 8th, 2006 08:27 am (UTC)
Shade took a drink and gave him a look. He could be so annoyingly blunt at times.

"I don't know. Haven't seen him since he met Aziraphale."
_zaelia_ on May 8th, 2006 08:32 am (UTC)
"So why don't you ask?" He was asking the obvious questions. Well, somebody had to do it.
Shadeshadows_of_grey on May 8th, 2006 08:40 am (UTC)
Shade shrugged. "I probably will, next time I see him. If I don't see him soon, I'll be..." she paused, as if rephrasing what she was going to say, "I'll go find him. I told him that I'd help him move into that new apartment of his, after all."

Teena: Mikoteena_chan on May 5th, 2006 04:26 am (UTC)
Miko wandered in, grumbling something under her breath. 'Wander over and see what's running at the club for me, would you, Miko-chan?' As if she wasn't perfectly capable of checking it out herself...

Several things went 'click' when she saw Zero, and she glanced up towards the ceiling, scowling. "Very goddamn funny, 'kaasan."
tech_rebel on May 5th, 2006 05:51 am (UTC)
Zero looked up, frowning thoughtfully as if he felt something strange. He casually slipped his sunglasses on again before turning his head. His gaze settled on Miko.

"Is that... No, it couldn't be," he murmured to himself as he watched her.
Teena: Mikoteena_chan on May 6th, 2006 12:59 am (UTC)
"Don't give me that... I know you better than that. You're inflicting your sense of humor on me," Miko griped, drumming her fingers on a convenient tabletop. She didn't much care how odd the apparently one-sided conversation might look to anyone else. "You're such a pain in the ass, 'kaasan."

Finally she shook her head and looked around, then sat down in a relatively out of the way spot where she could see everything.
tech_rebel on May 6th, 2006 02:00 am (UTC)
Zero seemed to mull all of this over for a few moments before he got up from his bar stool and walked over to Miko's table.

"Mind if I sit?" He asked politely.
Teena: Mikoteena_chan on May 6th, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
"You might as well," Miko replied, a bit wryly. "It's obviously why I'm here. Certain people have absolutely no subtlety at times."

She absently wondered if there was a version of Dita wandering around here, too.

"My name is Miko."
tech_rebel on May 6th, 2006 06:59 am (UTC)
Zero pulled out a chair and settled into it. He smiled and pulled down the sunglasses a bit to look at her.

"My name's Zero, but I guess you knew that."
Teena: Mikoteena_chan on May 6th, 2006 02:35 pm (UTC)
"Yeah, I did. Then again, I know an awful lot of things," Miko said, shrugging a bit. "If I'd been paying attention, I would have known you were here before I came, but I've been getting lazy recently."

She absently picked a bit of fluff off her sweater. The clothes she was wearing were concealing, and comfortably loose, but not anything like as enveloping as what she used to wear. She'd been slowly migrating towards a more middle-ground wardrobe in the months she'd been living with Gaelon.
tech_rebel on May 6th, 2006 06:37 pm (UTC)
"Being tapped in through an author must be convenient," Zero commented, watching her with an expression that might have been curious. "I'm stuck with more conventional methods, myself."
Teena: Mikoteena_chan on May 7th, 2006 03:13 am (UTC)
"Sometimes it is," she said, resting her chin on her fist. "Sometimes it's just annoying, because there are things I'm not interested in watching, but I don't always have a choice."

She paused, then thoughtfully added, "I suppose that depends on the author you're tapped in through, though. 'Kaasan is just... There are no words. She finds my aggravation endlessly amusing."
tech_rebel on May 7th, 2006 05:29 am (UTC)
"I don't think I'd volunteer for getting stuck with that one any more than I already am," he commented wryly with a vague gesture upwards.

"If I had seen you before I heard you speak, I might have mistaken you for Chii. I'm glad I didn't, as uou're probably sick of that... as much as I'm tired of people calling me Zima."
