mjolnir_retriever: Thor looking serious and possibly regretful in profile, head bowed (he never listened)

[Shortly before: a rooftop conversation.]

The Thor that enters the bar is a less conspicuous figure than often. Oh, he's still tall, and broad-shouldered and exceedingly blond, and his posture is still straight and regal; he's not actively trying for stealth.

But he's wearing normal clothes of 21st century Earth, some of them still spattered with long-dried mud, and more to the point his attitude is quiet and subdued.

(Well. By Thor's standards.)

Jane Foster is still asleep on her chair on the rooftop, but the fire she built has long dwindled to embers. Thor hasn't slept; his heart is too full of grief, and his mind too full of memories. And he doesn't need as much sleep as humans, maybe even now. He watched the stars as they spun slowly across the sky, until the sky began to lighten and he rose quietly.

Milliways is unexpected -- it always has been, so far -- but not at all unwelcome.

Thor breathes out, and sets out across the bar towards the lake door.

A few minutes later, there's a large man standing under a tree, in shadow, looking up at Milliways' own night sky.

It's different than New Mexico's. But no less foreign.

[OOC: ahaha, I love you all, but I am closing this to new threads in the interests of ever finishing my slowtimes. He'll be in again soon!]

It could be coincidence that Diana, Princess of the missing island known as Themyscira, catching a glimpse of his entrance from her own seat across the bar, makes her way outside not too many minutes later.

"You have the look of someone," Wonder Woman says, standing just on the outskirts of the tree's shadow, "who has had what might be termed 'a long day'."

Diana merely arches an eyebrow, smiling very faintly.

"And what would you say, if I may be so bold as to ask?"

[personal profile] ambriel 2012-08-15 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
There's someone else looking up at the sky tonight, too.

Ambriel is sitting on a rock by the lake shore, as still as the stone itself.

Eventually, the angel blinks, and stirs, turning toward Thor.

"Hello."
ambriel: (Blue interest)

[personal profile] ambriel 2012-08-15 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
...yeah. Not really likely, here.

"You seem troubled. Is it a trouble that would improve with company?"

He may want to continue being alone!

It took Ellen a while, over at the target range, to realize it was getting dark. That's the thing about practicing with energy weapons. They light up everywhere around you, and then you have to find your way back after sunset all on your own.

Then again, she's got her armor on, and there's a lamp built into the side of her helmet, and the weapons are all loaded onto her metal horse, which has a headlamp of its own installed between its ears. So at least there's something to see by as the two clanking figures make their way through the dark back towards the buildings.

It's kind of a short being in a suit, for what that's worth. Between the thickness of the boots, and the top of the helmet, and the height of the actual wearer, they're.... about five foot five inches, all told. Tops. There is a certain element of little-kid-playing-dress-up about the whole thing.

(At least until the carbon scoring and scratches and myriad repair marks across its surface become visible, along with the rank and unit markings painted on one side of the chest plate. The suit's seen service, that's for sure.)

The horse doesn't turn its head as it moves. It's not really designed to. The suit wearer, however, is a little uncertain around trees on the best of days, so she's looking this way and that- and in so doing spots the fellow under a tree nearby. "Oh, hey," she says, in a voice muffled and made staticky by the helmet's filters. "Hi there. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you."

A few moments later, a tall man(shape) appears two steps to Thor's side.

"I greet you, Thor Odinsson."

"I am Dream of the Endless."

Some people, Dream goes through the process of having them recognize him.

Others... he elects not to waste time. Or perhaps he's merely feeling friendly.

"You may well know me by another name. This is my function and my title."

Darcy comes out with a bottle of beer dangling from her fingers, tiny soft cooler with some Haagen-Dazs hanging over her shoulder. She sees him pretty much immediately, because spotting errant norse thunder gods is kind of her thing, and disappears back into the Bar.

She comes out a few minutes later, cooler now ninja-ly hiding two containers of Haagen-Dazs, and a cardboard carrier of four watermelon ales. "Hey, dude," she calls when she's in easy distance. "Want company?"

She lifts the four-pack slightly as she asks, in the standard notification of because I brought you booze.

"Sure," she says, and settles down in the grass next to him, crossing her legs. She's really glad she decided to wear jeans today; grass is super-itchy if you're wearing shorts. She holds a beer up to him. "Should I ask what's up, or d'you just want to eat ice cream with me? Because seriously it can go either way, here. I mean, if you want to talk you can still have ice cream."

Ilena is by the entrance.


She is not appreciating the sky, per se. But she is noting all the ways in which the stars are different from those in the sky she knows.

It might be more productive to count all the ways in which they are the same; the answer is approximately 'none.'
dis_armed: (expressionless)

[personal profile] dis_armed 2012-08-15 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Ilena does not nod back, although her gaze shifts over to take him in.

The man is a man. Unlike -- well, anybody else that she's encountered so far -- there seems to be nothing extraordinary about him at all.

(If her senses weren't cloaked, she might not be so quick to dismiss him. But a side effect of shielding her own presence is a dimming of her perceptions with regard to everybody else's.)

It will be interesting to see if something attacks him. She supposes if it does she will intervene, out of habit.

Ava happens to round this tree holding a dagger the size of her forearm.

The noise she makes when she notices Thor's presence is rather akin to "Nnnaugh!"

HOW DID SHE NOT SEE HIM, HE'S HUGE.
