It was a distant corner of Shadow, one usually undisturbed. One that was usually quiet, even. But it wasn't quiet and undisturbed right now. Teena was there, several inches above the ground, with ribbons of light and darkness dancing around her. Her voice was raised in song, but not the wordless, unearthly song that came from her so often. This was something a bit more standard.

"I told you everything
Opened up and let you in
You made me feel alright
For once in my life
Now all that's left of me
Is what I pretend to be
So together, but so broken up inside
'Cause I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hangin' on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes..."

Despite the agonized lyrics, her voice carried no pain. This was no lament...just remembrance.

"Ah, such emotional words, yet you sing them without remorse. 'Beautiful, yes sadly painful...' As another song is called, in part. There are no words, but the melody suffices."

He seemed lost in thought as he spoke, as if he were speaking aloud to himself.

Like Gaelon, he is more slender than muscular, though he's taller than his twin, and there is something vaguely reminisicent in his features, a similarity to their mother, but there is also something like Trevadir and Dúros there, too. Especially in the eyes, which are pale blue, nearly grey. His hair, which is long enough to reach the middle of his back, is silver.

The aura around him didn't give away much, but it was obvious that he was a very magically talented sort. Just as much as Gaelon, it seems, though his abilities have a different sort of feel to them.

"I am sorry," he smiled, a polite sort of smile but one that mirrored in his eyes, and bowed formally. "Forgive me if I intrude. I heard your song, you see, and I was curious to see who was singing..."

"Once upon a time, the song would have hurt. Now it's just a reminder, that I used to be a very different person," Teena replied, holding her hands out in front of her. The ribbons gathered into a sphere over her palms before winking out. She didn't settle to the ground, though.

"You're not intruding. If I really wanted to be alone, I would have gone somewhere else. Hello, Aervir."

He smiled, amused. "So much for drama and pretending as if we don't know very well who we're talking to here. Ah well. Good evening to you, Teena."
Teenateena_chan on June 3rd, 2006 11:18 pm (UTC)
Her turn for the amused smile. "I'm sorry, I didn't realize we were playing out a scenario here. If you'd like to start over..."

She pulled her knees up and laid her arms across them casually.

"No, no, the moment is ruined now," Aervir sighed, but he was still smiling. He continued, waving his arms a little to emphasize. "And 'tis not a scenario, but a scene. All part of an act, which is, in turn a part of a play and-" He stopped suddenly as he watch came into view.

"Is that the time?" He blinked and tapped his watch. "Oh, it is. Dammit." His expression shifted into one of mild frustration. "I was supposed to be home fifteen minutes ago. Mother is going to be annoyed with me."
Teena: Teenateena_chan on June 4th, 2006 02:50 am (UTC)
"Drama queen."

Wow. There was some massive inherent irony there. Her of all people calling someone else a drama queen. It was really very funny.

"....I could get you home fifteen minutes ago. If you promise not to tell anybody. I'm pretty sure I'm probably not supposed to do that sort of thing for anything other than the earth-shakingly important."

aervir_ithildin on June 4th, 2006 03:23 am (UTC)
"Drama queen? Me?" Aervir looked innocently surprised. "Surely not."

He tilted his head and nodded decisively. "Right. If anyone asks, I was never here, and I certainly didn't meet you, and you definitely did not send me home fifteen minutes early, thus helping me avoid the fearsome wrath of my dear sweet Mother," he said seriously, absently tapping one finger against his chin.
Teena: Teenateena_chan on June 4th, 2006 03:40 am (UTC)
"Absolutely. I haven't seen a soul so far tonight, and I certainly didn't open a portal to fifteen minutes ago and right in front of your door," Teena agreed, opening one hand. Strings of shimmering light sprang from it to weave into a rough portal, gleaming oddly silver. She coughed and looked shifty again.

"And I definitely didn't block Miko's awareness of all this, thus avoiding the fearsome wrath of my dear sweet daughter."

Another curious head-tilt. "Why would she be upset about this?"
Teenateena_chan on June 6th, 2006 01:19 am (UTC)
"Miko-chan has strong opinions about irresponsible use of omnipotence or near-omnipotence. Personally, I think 'What's the point in being omnipotent if you don't abuse it now and then?' Actually, she has strong opinions about irresponsibility in general. And stupidity. ...Most of the things that tended to get me in trouble, really."

She scratched her jaw with one finger. "Gaelon's mellowing her, though. I'm glad. She deserves to relax and enjoy life."
aervir_ithildin on June 6th, 2006 06:37 am (UTC)
"I don't see how this is irresponsible," Aervir said thoughtfully. "Oh well, I'd better be going before it's longer than fifteen minutes. That would cause a little bit of trouble. You know how my father is and all." He smiled. "We can talk later, I'm sure." He gave her a brief wave before stepping through the portal.

She waved back, then held out a hand, the portal closing behind him and unweaving into strands and motes of light that slowly faded. Then she sprawled out in midair, pillowing her head on her arms.
