[oom: In which Erik makes a request for the release of one Dr Donald Blake, from the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D.

His request is granted, with a condition and Thor and Erik head off to ignore it.]


Some time after this, the front door opens. Erik Selvig stumbles through, supported by Thor.

Erik blinks at Milliways momentarily. He was headed outside. He was certain. Now he's still inside. What the? He turns to Thor, to see if the big guy is as surprised as he is.

[ooc: Two pups, two muns, tag one get the (possibly drunk) other free!]

[ooc: You guys are awesome thanks for threading so far! Slowtimes are now activated, although they may end in superslow times due to time zone issues, but we will thread!]

When you've been coming to the Bar for a while, as Ellen has, you learn to recognize the certain 'bzuh?' look that winds up on the faces of first-timers. (Well, of first-timers who aren't screaming and hiding under the table, or pointing weapons at people.) She was almost done with supper, anyway, so she pushes what's left of her plate aside- Dogmeat can have it if he wants- and gets to her feet.

"You look surprised. Are you all right?"
mjolnir_retriever: Thor grinning cheerfully (cheerful floppy puppy)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Thor turns a grin on her.

Down on her. Thor is... kind of tall.

"He has taught me of boilermakers," he informs Ellen, sounding pretty cheerful about this fact. "And made his ancestors proud with drink."
aaaaaaaagh_sky: (wut?)

[personal profile] aaaaaaaagh_sky 2012-07-15 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
"Boiler- oh, the drink," says Ellen. "Okay. I've heard of those but I don't think I ever actually met anybody who had one."

Good lord he's tall. She's going to need a stepstool or something if this conversation continues.

"Well, um- Milliways is usually pretty good about providing things you need, if you ask the bar politely? At least, I've usually found it that way? ... do you want to sit down or something? You look like one of you could use a chair."
mjolnir_retriever: Thor beaming (as conspiratorial as he gets)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 08:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Thor laughs.

However heavy his heart is, cheer is easier with people around. He can lose himself in that, in the moment and the companionship.

"He had three." So... hmm, maybe a good idea. "If we are here, sitting is a wise notion." He steers Erik towards the nearest chair, manhandling the older man with friendly ease.

"They are good for drinking with comrades," he adds to Ellen. Thor's Opinion On Boilermakers, delivered!

mjolnir_retriever: Thor and Erik Selvig talking (Thor's face in profile, Erik listening to him) (learn to ask the right questions)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Surprised, yes, but not as surprised. There's recognition in the way he blinks at the room that's appeared around them.

And then laughs under his breath. "We have found Milliways, my friend," he informs Erik. "You seem fated not to find your bed just yet!"
mjolnir_retriever: Thor talking, rueful and self-deprecating (I had everything backwards)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 07:54 pm (UTC)(link)
...Hmm. Thor could explain this to another Asgardian, at least enough to wrap their head around the notion

(not that he'll get the chance again; not that he can ever go home)

but explaining it to Erik Selvig the scientist of Earth is another question.

On the other hand, Erik's drunk.

"It is a bar," Thor explains. "But an unusual one, which appears when it's not expected."

themysciran_diana: (big smile)

[personal profile] themysciran_diana 2012-07-15 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"Thor," Diana says, smiling faintly as she makes her approach.

Outlandish her costume may be, to some eyes, but she doesn't move as if it were.

Long experience makes that easy.

"You came back. And you've brought a friend, I see. Welcome."
mjolnir_retriever: Thor grinning cheerfully (cheerful floppy puppy)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 08:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Diana," Thor greets her gladly.

Diana who... lives in exile from all her realm, and finds comfort in friends.

Yeah.

The shadow's only brief; it passes, though the underlying thought doesn't. "This is Erik Selvig, a scientist of Earth. Erik my friend, this is Diana of Themyscira."
themysciran_diana: (Default)

[personal profile] themysciran_diana 2012-07-15 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
"Erik," Diana says, though at the moment she forbears on holding out her hand.

It seems cruel to taunt a man so unsteady on his feet. For one.

"I will say it's a pleasure to meet you. Would you both care to sit down?"

ostro_goth: (Axe)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-07-15 07:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"Greetings," Teja says. "Mighty Thor," he adds, after a brief look -- this is not the other man, that shares Thor's face.
mjolnir_retriever: Thor grinning cheerfully (cheerful floppy puppy)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Thor's feelings about being hailed as a god -- about being hailed at all by someone who knows him as he should be -- are newly complicated. But if part of that complication is an upwelling of guilt, another part is desperate relief at encountering someone more familiar than modern Midgard with its machines and skepticism. All that really shows on Thor's face is that some of his cheer shifts into the attention of greeting.

"Greetings, Teja Tagilason," Thor says. The man listing against him is clearly well and truly drunk, but it's hard to tell if Thor's even tipsy, or only cheerful.
ostro_goth: (Deep look)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-07-15 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
"Your companion seems to be drunk already," Teja observes, to Thor. "Would he need any help?"

Pause.

"Greetings," he then adds, directly to Erik.

mjolnir_retriever: Thor in a diner looking confused and maybe vaguely indignant (I meant no disrespect...?)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-15 08:44 pm (UTC)(link)
"We are in Milliways," Thor assures them both.

Wait.

"I know this realm," he adds to Will. "I have come here twice before."
will_scarlett: (Explain yourself)

[personal profile] will_scarlett 2012-07-15 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"Aye, that'll make it easier. Where were ye 'eaded?"

He'd offer to help since one of them does look rather unsteady but the blonde man is bigger than John so doesn't need it.

Yes, Molly can pronounce acronyms. It's her secondary mutation.

(She is also now quite thoroughly distracted from her blackcurrant-and-sparkles milkshake - not an easy task, so well done that god.)

"HI THOR!"
mjolnir_retriever: Thor looking either completely baffled or extremely dubious (what was that again?)

[personal profile] mjolnir_retriever 2012-07-17 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
[OOC: Yaaaay, it worked!]

Thor has no idea who this enthusiastic mortal(?) child is, and that shows on his broad confused face. But he's game!

"Hello, child," he responds in a friendly rumble.

Maybe she... came to Asgard sometime? But she doesn't look Asgardian, and her clothes certainly don't.

Then again, neither do Thor's right now.
cute_bruiser: (Armtug- excitable - Chattery little girl)

[personal profile] cute_bruiser 2012-07-23 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
The mortal bit is ... kind of debatable, anyway. Certainly she's a lot harder to hurt than you'd maybe expect.

"Hiiiiiii." She grins up at him (sorry, Erik, you're kind of superfluous right now. Molly is a fully-fledged Revengerers fangirl - it's nothing personal!) and offers him her hand, eyes lighting up (literally: they've gone pink) as she powers up. "I'm Princess Powerful and I'm totally super-strong like you and I always wondered who was stronger so this is SO cool right now!"
