gonna put my name on everything that's mine

"Well it's mine now." Bar produces another napkin-note; Loki reads it, eyes narrowed. "--Then I'll pay. There's money in my account. Roughly a bank's-worth. It ought to cover a single unarmed skiff. --All right, thank you. And the paint I asked for? Green. Mm."

Loki leaves the bar with a bucket of paint, shaking his head, and makes for the lake, where his skiff, the one that is definitely his and not Milliways property, is waiting. Thank you, Milliways, and thank you X.

Older!Jim is off sorting out his workplace issues, so the kid has found a door today. Not that he was looking - which is why he's lugging a rucksack full of books around - but eh, he'll take it. And it's a nice day here in Milliways, so he's meandering around outside, trying to convince himself he's capable of sitting down and reading for a bit.

Seeing Loki is a welcome distraction, so he wanders over to see what he's doing.

'Hello.'

Yes obviously; so obviously Jim does not deign to acknowledge such mundanities. He runs his eyes over the skiff instead.

'Does it always fly, or did you make it do that?'

'Most things are nicer than a bus.'

He slides his bag off his shoulder, and walks to look at it close up. Also, perhaps, to hide the smile that comes from hearing how happy Loki is about his little boat.

'How high can it go?'

Jim snorts, amused.

'Hoping?'

Please.

'For one thing, you're dying to show it off, and wax lyrical about how well it goes and does...whatever flying boats do.'

Fly, he would assume.

'But mostly I was just wondering whether it could break out of the atmosphere, and you've answered that now.'

'A ride in this, or are you being euphemistic?'

Jim doesn't sound like he cares either way. But he does get in, and looks at Loki expectantly. Tooooootally ready to be impressed.

Noriko is walking along the beach when she catches sight of the skiff (boat? dinghy? whatever the hell it's properly called)--it looks cool, she'll totally admit to that--and its owner.

"Nice boat," she calls, bare feet sinking into the sand as she crosses towards Loki, casual and mostly wondering how much paint that thing's gonna take. "What're the wings for?"
electro_kinetic: (concerned)

[personal profile] electro_kinetic 2017-06-14 08:47 pm (UTC)(link)
It really does. And Nori isn't even particularly a boat person. But she smiles and keeps coming, undeterred.

As far as size goes, she's relatively tiny: only about five-four, asian, small-statured but muscular. And hey, bright blue hair goes a long way to making you look harmless when you're a twenty-year-old young woman. "Does it legitimately fly? Like, not just hover?" Because that would make this even cooler, truthfully.

"That's pretty awesome," she says, grinning brightly--literally, brightly, she glows--as she studies his painting.

"Never seen a flying boat before, but hey, why not." Anything being possible here, as far as she knows. Or cares. "Whatcha painting on it? What do the runes mean?" Because she can recognize that they are runes, just not what they say: reading the first bit of Beowulf in an English class does a lot for recognizing, but not that much for understanding.
electro_kinetic: (thoughtful)

[personal profile] electro_kinetic 2017-06-14 09:49 pm (UTC)(link)
She snorts in amusement.

"Classy way to pull off the 'don't touch my stuff' sentiment," Noriko chuckles. "It looks good. But just paint? Won't it slide off metal eventually?"

Floki is going fishing today!

So out he goes toward the lake with a woven basket with bait, a three-pronged wooden spear, and some line and hooks tucked away in a pouch.

And then he stops.

Because ship with wings. Hovering ship with wings.

What.

In complete and total awe, he approaches the ship and the man who is obviously painting his mark of ownership upon its hull, because that is what people do, duh.

"Such a remarkable vessel!" he tells the man while gaping up at the elegant prow, wanting to drop everything and run up to it and touch it and see what it's made of and how it's built.
gods_that_haunt_me: (what)

[personal profile] gods_that_haunt_me 2017-06-15 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
"Indeed, it must be so," he remarks as he moves this way and that, taking in the ship from as many angles as he can.

"Is it magic that keeps her in the air?"

He would definitely accept that explanation.
gods_that_haunt_me: (what)

[personal profile] gods_that_haunt_me 2017-06-15 06:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Floki's eyes widen a little at that, all the more impressed.

"The ones that go only on water, yes," he says with a bird-like nod of his head. "I am a shipwright in my homeland."
gods_that_haunt_me: (grin)

[personal profile] gods_that_haunt_me 2017-06-15 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
It's very rare to meet someone here who speaks of the honor that comes with his trade. This man here is clearly one of high rank, and for him to acknowledge such a thing fills Floki with pride, though he's much more used to being humble.

A grin spreads across his face, because he's only too happy to talk about his ships. He sets his fishing gear down on the ground and comes closer to the skiff, still marveling at it.

"My ships are not as grandiose as this," he says, though the cogs are turning in his head as he tries to figure out what it would take to create something similar, "but I have built ships that have carried my people farther across the seas than any before us, bore us to lands we have never set foot upon. They are swift and cut through water like a blade, and ride waves like leaves on a rushing stream. And though they are light they are still strong, and able to withstand the mightiest of Thor's storms."

Name drop?
