Hotspur is sitting in the Bar, slumped low in a chair, her eyes fixed on the place where her door ought to be. She's got her fatigues on on the bottom, just a t-shirt on top, her black curls piled into a haphazard bun on top of her head, but her casual look is belied by the tense set of her shoulders, the sharp, speculative look in her eye.

Indeed, her repose only lasts for a moment or two before she springs to her feet, strides to the wall and slams herself into it, shoulder-first, as if to break down the presently invisible door. (It doesn't work.)

She's getting a little tired of being stuck here.

[ooc: since au week seems to have kicked off early... harry's coming from a modern(ish) au based on a production i saw, where hotspur was-- as you may have guessed-- a woman (and still married to kate. it was a great show). she is coming from early in her canon, and thus is not dead, but bound.]

Hal has been enjoying a pleasant light lunch as he tries to place the woman. Have they met? He doesn't think he remembers that face, but the mutinous expression reminds him of something and--

and now she's flinging herself at the walls.

It would be funny if a man were doing it, but it's vaguely distressing from a woman, so Hal unfolds himself from his comfortable booth and saunters over. "What wicked offense has the wall given you, my lady? Some ungallant words, some uncouth gesture...?"

...Right!

"O! vile wall!" he agrees cheerfully, and gives the wall a kick himself. Why not. "Hear you not my lady? Thus have you, Wall, your part discharged so; and, being done, thus Wall away may go!"

Kick kick. It's good fun.

"Mock, my lady? I, my lady? 'Twould be vile, uncouth, ungallant--'twould make me wicked as this wall. Nay, madam, I mock you not. I have railed myself too many times against these tyrant-walls to mock at any enemy of theirs."

She's...still reminding him of someone. And he still can't place it.

"Why no, indeed; were you my lady, sure I would better know your face--and, I would hope, your name."

Ohhhh, a hit! Hal claps a hand to his breast and staggers back under the blow. "O, you wound me! A fearsome fighter is my lady: 'tis plain you held back from the wall, and well that is for us all, or we would be under the rubble."

Immediately after she shoulder-checks the door, it opens. In strides a large man in red robes, with a staff slung on his back. He beams at the black-haired woman. "Sorry, am I in your way?"

(OOC: Baze is coming in from an AU where the Empire doesn't exist. He is still a living Guardian at the Temple of the Kyber.)

The giant of a man allows her to shoulder past him, a bemused expression on his face. (And a little bit of amusement, too, let's be real.)

"England? You mean that Earth country?" he says, still smiling. "No, that's Jedha, a cold, desert moon in a galaxy that doesn't have an Earth. And I'm Guardian Baze Malbus. Pleasure to meet you. Are you bound, Miss...?"
iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze blinking (if you say so)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-11 08:31 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, I'm sorry," Baze says sympathetically, shaking his head. He shuts his door behind him, and turns to her again. "How long have you been trapped here?"
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-11 08:40 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh!" Baze says, with a quick grin--which he schools into a somber expression. Very somber, indeed; he's almost dour. He doesn't mean to laugh at her! But... Hours? Just hours, and she's frustrated enough to throw herself at a wall? Baze thinks that's hilarious.

But he's not without sympathy, too.

"My condolences, Percy," Baze says, brutally stuffing his good humor. "Is there anything I can do for you? Introduce you to a card game to pass the time, perhaps?"

Garnet sees the human flinging herself at a wall.

The sight pings something in her--recognition both rueful and affectionate, a surge of defensive denial, an answering peal of laughter. A quiet harrumph.

All of this is internal. Externally, she is Garnet: polished and integrated and unflappable.

She regards the human without expression.

"Why are you trying to break down the wall?"

Not that Garnet is judging, but it seems inefficient.

[personal profile] a_conversation 2017-08-11 10:32 pm (UTC)(link)
"I see," says Garnet. "You're Bound." It's a concept she's only just learned. "Breaking down the wall won't recreate your Door." Garnet is a helper!

...Garnet knows that feeling.

"It's frustrating. Being trapped."
