EP - tiny!Emcee

The door works in the strangest of ways.

So when a certain someone is holed up in his room, his younger self, his much, much younger self, enters the bar.

Small and pale and undernourished, the elfin ten-year-old boy (who could be mistaken for even younger than that) is dressed in secondhand school clothes from a distant era: knickerbockers and knee socks, a cardigan and cloth cap. He stares at his surroundings with large brown doe eyes.

Has he been here before? Perhaps in a dream? Why does it feel so familiar, when the door shouldn't have led here at all?

But this is a pub, and the little boy knows pubs. He goes up to the counter, peeking over it on tiptoes, to look for the barman. But there is none. How odd.

Even odder is the glass of milk and the plate of cookies that suddenly appear out of thin air.

This must be a dream.

Milk and cookies! The appearance of the plate seems to attract a visitor. A large-ish red and white dog is suddenly right beside the boy, his tail wagging up a storm as he looks up with big, sad yellow eyes.

He gets a cookie, right?

"Goddamnit, leave the kid alone!" someone shouts from across the bar. Presumably at the dog, given the way he suddenly turns to look elsewhere.

The same someone can be heard saying "Fuck!" quite loudly from across the room as the dog quickly devours the biscuit from the floor. It's gone by the time the man with the pink handlebar moustache can get there in time. So he settles for glaring down at the dog instead.

Buster doesn't even have the decency to look guilty. He knows what he's done, and he's pleased with the outcome.

"He'll never leave you alone now," Wilford warns the boy. "As long as you live, he'll be bothering you for more."

Buster wags his tail happily.

Why are all the kids around here so well-mannered? It's creepy.

Wilford might not think the kid was so well-mannered if he knew about the clown comment, but maybe it's good that he doesn't.

"He'll puke on your shoes if you feed him too much. I don't think anybody likes that."

If he's being stern, he doesn't notice it. He's just sick of getting chewed out over his dog being here and making messes. Buster still doesn't seem to care. There's more cookie in sight, and that is all he cares about.

"This some sort of cosplay thing?" Wilford asks, noticing what the boy's wearing.

Buster is still silently pestering the boy, so he gets dragged out of the way before he gets impatient enough to steal the cookie right out of his hand. There's some complaining from the dog, but then he sits with his back toward both of them.

"It's when you dress up in a costume for no reason."

Under his leather jacket, Wilford is wearing a t-shirt, and some well-worn bluejeans. His shoes might seem a bit unusual as well, for someone who's never seen a skateboard in their life.

Cassian's at the counter drinking caf and looking over his datapad as he's finally back on base. When he sees the boy, he says, "Do you need help?"

He knows children come here, but it still worries him, he remembers sneaking around cantinas in the Outer Rim when he was a boy.

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-08-07 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Bar translates but the accent makes him think of Emcee.

That look worries Cassian, he's seen many of them in his life and his own accent is more pronounced, "Yes, its in front of you. Bar is generous. She likes taking care of everyone."
childofrebellion: (kind at the end)

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-08-07 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
"Thank you. My name's Cassian,"

He takes one cookie and takes a bite to show that they're safe.

Sinric watches the boy with a little smile, his eyes flashing gold a moment as he recognises who the boy will become. He comes over, all swishing silk skirts and silver ankle bells. "Whatever you desire, you need only ask. The bar will provide."

[personal profile] thewidewideworld 2017-08-08 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
"Nor do you need any." Sinric reassures. "No payments are needed. Not by the young."

He orders a pot of tea and it appears in a lovely silver service with elegant painted glasses. "Would you like some?"

He gestures to the comfortable seats by the fire, carrying the tray with practiced grace.
thewidewideworld: (Default)

[personal profile] thewidewideworld 2017-08-09 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
"A woman of wisdom." Sinric nods, pouting his tea. "My name is Sinric. What name may I know you by?"

He sees the other child and sits still, watching him as he looks around and gets good and drink, his hands paused in the work he was doing.

He thinks it is a child of Men, even though his features are as delicate as those of the Firstborn.

He's never seen a child of Men. Not up close.

[personal profile] starrydome 2017-08-08 07:44 pm (UTC)(link)
"You can take it," he tells the boy. His voice carries easily across the distance between them.

"It's a gift."
starrydome: Small, frightened Elrond (baby!Elrond)

[personal profile] starrydome 2017-08-08 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
He thinks it over.
Then he nods.

"Yes. Thank you. Do you want to sit here?"
He shifts his stuff around, making space.
