Chirrut is moving more cautiously today. The room's furniture has changed dramatically, and seems to still be changing. The safe plan for today would be to have a rat deliver food and tea somewhere less... mobile, and relax.

But.

Chirrut has never been a huge fan of the safe road.

He makes his way to the Bar carefully, and leans his staff against the Bar as he takes a seat.

Surprisingly, what appears under his hands isn't Bar's usual napkin, or simply a mug of tea, but a datapad, much like his translator upstairs. He reads, his frown of concentration turning in to a smirk as he learns what is going on, and that there will be choices. A robot, one that sounds much like K2SO that was. A woman, which briefly tempts him if only to find out what Baze's reaction would be. The third option, a lothcat, also tempts him... for much the same reasons.

The fourth makes him pause. He sits, tracing the raised letters, over and over again, thoughtfully.

(OOC note: Baze may bounce into any and all threads! :D)

Chirrut's timing is excellent, as Ibani has just come back from Nar Shaddaa with presents! Specifically, two rods of pure cortosis about as thick in diameter as a crayon and slightly shorter than their staffs.

"Hello, Chirrut! I come bearing gifts!" The sound of the ends of two metal rods tapping against the floor is clear against the background noise of the Bar.

"Oh, you know, pure cortosis rods sized for the inside of the staves you and Baze use," Ibani says, glee in her voice and the Force.

"Ibani!" Baze calls, which is all the warning she has before Baze comes barreling over from constructing a Lego castle in the corner. He wraps his arms around her, briefly lifting her off her feet. "I've missed you! How are you? Did Chirrut even ask? He's so rude, please forgive him."

"Not just stop a lightsaber. Cortosis this pure can short one out for a minute or two when a lightsaber hits it. I doubt it would flummox anyone with real skill for more than a second or two, but..."

Then Baze arrives and lifts her off her feet, which doesn't stop her from returning the hug. "Baze! I've missed you too! I'm fine, and I'm sure Chirrut was going to ask shortly." She's giving him the benefit of the doubt.

"You seem well."
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-06-28 06:44 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh?" Baze says, smoothing his hands over her shoulders. He beams at her, delighting in her very presence. "What have you brought that can accomplish the impossible?"

[personal profile] last_kallig 2017-06-28 10:32 pm (UTC)(link)
"Something that can give someone trying to hit you with a lightsaber a very nasty surprise," Ibani replies, her wicked grin tangible in the Force.

"Pure cortosis rods that should fit inside your staves. They'll short out a lightsaber that hits them for a minute or two, as well as block the blade."

"It really is!" Baze says, embracing her again. "Thank you, Ibani. If there's ever any way we can return the favor, please let us know. You give the best presents."
last_kallig: (SWTOR)

[personal profile] last_kallig 2017-06-29 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
Ibani gladly returns the hug. "You're very welcome, and I'm glad you like the presents."

"It's an investment in my peace of mind, knowing that you have that option if you need it."

"Oh, and I found out how to build what the Jedi call practice sabers! They're lightsabers, but they only sting when they hit. I can spar against you two with two blades now that act like the real thing!" Well, except in the maiming department.
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-06-29 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
Back off, Chirrut, this is Baze's Ibani.

Just kidding! Baze will share. He keeps one hand on her shoulder and loops the other around Chirrut's waist.

"Two blades? We could barely keep up with you when you used one!" Baze says, laughing. "But I'm looking forward to that fight as well. I don't plan on surrendering this time. You'll have to beat me into submission."
last_kallig: (SWTOR)

[personal profile] last_kallig 2017-06-29 11:43 am (UTC)(link)
Ibani wraps an arm around each of them. "I'm looking forward to it too. I may have to keep going until you collapse from exhaustion."

Ibani pauses for a moment. "Speaking of sparring....would either of you be willing to teach me how to fight with a staff? It looks interesting, and I'm hoping that having proper instruction will let me learn how teaching is supposed to work." The less said about Ibani's previous 'instructors', the better!

"Chirrut is the better man of us when it comes to staffwork, and always has been," Baze says immediately, making a show of checking his head for fever. Baze has never known his friend to be modest, so something must be direly wrong.

The larger man beams at Ibani. "Why don't we start today? Chirrut and I can get used to the cortosis making our staves heavier, and you can start building calluses. Which reminds me--we should tape up your hands."

He cocks his head to the side. "Also, I have a favor to ask. I know you've just brought us presents--and what lovely presents they are!--but if you come across a blaster in your travels, can I buy it off you? I'm looking to teach a friend to shoot."

Ibani chuckles at Baze's show of checking Chirrut for fever. "Thank you, both of you, I'd be happy to start today!"

"What is the tape for?" she asks, curious. No, of course her prior 'instructors' didn't bother with that sort of thing for their students.

"No problem at all, blasters tend to accumulate where I'm concerned. I can bring you a selection of the next bunch." It's not her fault people keep trying to kill her, except when it is.

Chirrut obviously forgot that Baze's perfectly fine blaster--rifle, actually--melted in his hands. Clearly he needed an upgrade, and the cannon was there for the taking. It came in handy for the six months of life that he owned it.

Still, he understands Chirrut's bitching. Baze turning his back on staves upset Chirrut, and when Chirrut is sad, Baze is sad, too.

"Yes, something small would do nicely, please, and thank you," Baze says, nudging Chirrut. "The only reasons I'm not teaching her with my cannon is that I don't want to knock her off her feet with the kick, and it's heavy."

He flexes his own, taped-up fingers. "Do you remember our first match, and my hands bleeding afterwards? I lost all my calluses, and the staff rubbed my hands raw. The tape helps prevent that."

[personal profile] last_kallig 2017-06-30 11:32 am (UTC)(link)
"Something small it is, then," Ibani replies, chuckling. "I noticed that Baze's gun was rather large, a bit bigger than the assault canons I've seen Republic troopers use back in my time."

"Ah, that makes sense, with the tape," Ibani replies. "How should I tape them?" she asks, offering her hands for possible taping.
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-07-01 07:36 am (UTC)(link)
"Sure," Baze says, grinning as he snaps up the roll of tape from Chirrut. "Though, tape might be uncomfortable between her fingers, because she's not used to it. Maybe a cotton wrap instead?"

Bar provides two rolls of soft cotton, and Baze laughs, setting the tape down on the counter. It disappears. He plucks up one of the wraps and approaches Ibani. "Which is your dominate hand? I'll demonstrate on that, and then you can try with your non-dominate hand."

"I can use either hand, but the right is the one I use the most," Ibani replies.

"Thank you both, for being willing to teach me."
