It's not a bad day out and Logan is parked out by the lake.

He's got his back up against a tree, a bucket of beer on ice close to hand, and a fishing rod propped on a rock with a line in the water.

Every now and again his hand goes into the breast pocket of the plaid button down he's got on over a tank top and he pulls out sunflower seeds to pop into his mouth; contenting himself with spitting shells out towards the water's edge.

Laid back as he is, it's probably safe to approach.

Baze was out doing forms with his now-heavier staff--thanks to Ibani's cortosis core--in his and Chirrut's usual sparring clearing, but now the large man is engaging in a cool down walk. He spots the man down by the lake, and stomps through the grass as Baze approaches, in contrast to his usual light step.

"Hoi, stranger! I'm Baze Malbus," he says, and raises a hand in greeting. "May the Force of others be with you! Why do you have a line attached to a stick, and why is the string in the water?"

Guess who's never seen a fishing rod.

Oh! Well, Baze can sort of see how that works.

... No, the narration lies; Baze is completely lost. Coming from a moon with no oceans, he knows next to nothing about marine life, or the capture thereof. He has so many questions! How does the rod work? What is this stranger using for bait? How do you cook a fish, anyway? Isn't catching one at a time inefficient? And what's this stranger's name?

"Are you planning to eat what you catch?" Baze asks instead, not wanting to overwhelm the fishing man by nerding out on him.

Baze has never actually seen a fish, so he's fascinated by the flopping animal. It doesn't seem to be sentient. Can it breathe out of water? He has no idea. It looks slimy! And what a pretty color! Also, this stranger was really, really good at catching it! Cool!

Baze sort of figures out how the rod works by the demonstration. He thinks it's the neatest thing, but he's still curious about it. "Does it hurt them to be hooked like that?"

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-07-14 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, wow, the fish has scales! Baze wouldn't have noticed that if the stranger hadn't taken the time to show the large man his catch, which he's grateful for. He wishes he could have felt it, so he could better describe the experience to Chirrut, but Baze is not about to look a gift bantha in the mouth.

"I can't imagine you'd get much meat off an animal that size anyway," he says, grounding his staff. "Do they have a lot of bones?"
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-07-14 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh! Thank you!" Baze says, crossing to the tree to pick up the rod in his free hand. He doesn't skip--Baze Malbus is too old to skip, he thinks, and he has arthritic knees besides--but it's a near thing. He leans his staff against the tree, shoulders the rod, and returns to the stranger's fishing spot. "Do I need to add bait to the hook, or do the fish just... eat it on their own?"

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-07-14 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, neat, live bait! Baze takes the filthy, wriggling creature in between his thumb and forefinger, trying not to pinch it in half. He lifts the hook in his other hand, eyeing it. He takes a few tries to pierce the bait through, his brow creased. Eventually, Baze manages to get it right, leaving the critter squirming around on the hook.

"What's this thing called?" he says, motioning to the animal the stranger gave him as bait. "And how far out does the line need to be in the water to attract a fish?"

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-07-14 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
A worm. Okay! Baze commits that to memory, along with everything else about this experience.

"Nope!" he says cheerfully. "I didn't even know that it was called casting. How do we do it?"

Cassian's bacta is finally off and he's preparing for his next mission when Milliways appears in the hangar. The sun draws him out and he walks out to the lake, stretching and wondering about going to the firing range.

He's in his captain's jacket with his blaster at his side and smiles at the contented picture Logan presents, "Good fishing?"

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-14 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
He nods and sits down on a rock, fishing seems oddly normal for Milliways, its not something he's done much of but it happens around the galaxy, "What kind of fish are they?"
childofrebellion: (Confused)

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-14 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
"I don't think I know those. Are they from Earth?" That would fit with everything else here that seems connected to Earth.
childofrebellion: (unexpected)

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-14 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
"Scotland must be a nice places. Squid like Nautolans?" He didn't realize there were sentients living in the lake.
childofrebellion: (Furrowed brow)

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-14 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
"No, humanoid aliens with tentacles, they're from Mon Cala. Those I know giant squid live on the some of the ocean planets, I've never gone exploring,"

Cassian's never had a reason to.
childofrebellion: (intense listen)

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-16 04:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"You have a lot of them where you're from?" Aliens don't seem too common for people he's talked to.
