The thing that you have to remember about doorways is that you have to appreciate the empty space inside the frame just as much as you appreciate the frame itself. Without the empty space, the doorway would not be a doorway, but a wall instead.

With a quiet click, the Front Door opens.

A patron near the doorway might catch a glimpse of the world outside before the man steps through it; trees in the distance, a horse tied to the rail of the front porch, a light rain falling. The man's clothes are damp, his boots caked in a layer of red mud that he'll track through the bar on the way to the counter.

The rats can complain all they want; the man doesn't care.



A bourbon appears on the polished surface in front of him before he even says a word.

Doc smiles.

Quietly: "I've missed you too, darlin'."

Cassian's at the counter in his black leather jacket with a blaster hidden below sipping a caf and watching Milliways.

When the door opens, he notes the rain and the animal that he can't identify, the man's comfort is hard to miss. He shifts to face him, this the second man he's seen treat Bar with tenderness born of a long time away, "Been gone a while?"

The guns remind him of what the other man had, perhaps they're from the same place on Earth, "That must be confusing."

He follows, he could manage one more caf and trickster isn't a word that he hears often,

"A trickster, how do you mean?"

[personal profile] fry_sandhu 2017-05-15 01:46 pm (UTC)(link)
A young boy of eight standing at the bar looks at the footprints, and then at the man.

The man looks familiar, somehow. But it's been a while.

"I think I know you." he blurts out.
fry_sandhu: (fry 6 smile look up)

[personal profile] fry_sandhu 2017-05-16 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes, but I like to be called Fry." Fry says.

So it must be a long time ago when he saw this guy. And then suddenly he grins, and makes a rare moment of proper eye contact.

"Doc? "
fry_sandhu: (Default)

[personal profile] fry_sandhu 2017-05-22 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
"I am in good physical health." Fry says, having learned that the answer to this question is not 'how am I doing what?'.

"How are you? Have you found Dad yet?"

Somewhere a short - but not too short - distance down the bar, a red-shirted patron's head turns. Beat.

Is that--wait--it is!

"Scurlock!" That's pleased surprise, and the plain variety besides, and a little bemusement. Nobody said there wasn't a thread of amazement in there too; how long has it been, really?

Sariel's smiling too, soft and real.

((OOC: Eeeeee wei wei!))
visible_sariel: (lift me up)

[personal profile] visible_sariel 2017-05-17 08:08 am (UTC)(link)
If Sariel's a little surprised, well. Call it only a little. Yes, he's getting a hug in reply, drink or no drink. "I feel the same; my door has been so unreliable, I was beginning to wonder if everyone was unfamiliar--bonjour!"

That smile's not going away.

((OOC: No problem! RL snatched me away as it was.))

Daniel is sitting in such a way to as to not the horse, the mud, and the man. That's interesting.

"Huh."


"Been a long time?"
diehard_daniel: (Default)

[personal profile] diehard_daniel 2017-05-16 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
"Huh," says Daniel, "So, you're from when, exactally?"

He looks at the bottom of his coffee cup, the laptop and Ancient data pad forgotten on the bar top.
diehard_daniel: (ehhhh...very doubtful)

[personal profile] diehard_daniel 2017-05-16 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
Bar is pretty cool that way, "That's about 120 years before me. Anything good?"

The Bar refills Daniel's coffee.

"Been a while?"

The man at the end of the bar is simply dressed in jeans, a t-shirt, and a hooded sweatshirt. For some reason, he's wearing a black leather glove on his left hand, but not his right.

[personal profile] nerves_of_ice 2017-05-19 01:57 am (UTC)(link)
"Time can be strange," he says, with an odd quirk to the corner of his mouth.

"Welcome back, then, I guess."
