Tranquil!Ysalwen, AU week

Ysalwen steps through the doorway, holding a stack of scrolls and books to be returned to the library. She makes these rounds every afternoon, walking up and down the corridors of the senior enchanter's dormitory, then the regular enchanters, then the apprentices.

Then she sweeps the library. But this is not the library.

It is not the Fade, either. It will never be the Fade again.

Ysalwen's arms are getting tired. She sets the books on a nearby table and seats herself there.

Waiting until someone comes to fetch her is all there is to do. Curiosity, you see, happens to other people.

[ooc: Tranquil!Ysalwen, at your service. Her write-up is here.]

Someone is staring at her and her books: a young woman, maybe nineteen or twenty, with a frank gaze.

After Ysalwen spends a few minutes just sitting there, Willie gives up on just staring and takes herself over and plunks down into one of the other seats at the table. "You alright?"

"Are you!"

She looks at the woman doubtfully. Willie's seen people in a kind of shock before, but this doesn't seem at all like this. "Well--well, alright, then."

Fine.

....she tugs the top book off the pile and has a peek inside.

It's strange: she could swear that the first page she opened to was written in some unfamiliar language, not even proper letters, but now, flipping through, it's all English. Not that that makes it any clearer. "You read all this, do you?"

Cassian's looking for a table, while he's here he can have some coffee and food and plan before heading back.

When he passes her table, he stops as piles of books aren't odd here but she's not reading them, just sitting there which is disconcerting, "Are you okay?"

The sunburst combined with the tattoos makes him stare longer than he means to, nothing good ever comes of marking someone that way, "Are you researching something?"

"You're a librarian for mages?" Most librarians he's known are livelier.

Yamato's shoulders are hunched as he walks over, with his shadow ahead of him. He shouldn't really be approaching people or drawing attention to himself, not really, but the bar usually seems safe.

Safe-ish.

"You okay, there? Need any help with those books?"

[personal profile] angry_friendship_wolf 2017-08-12 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
Yamato's immediately on edge. Well, more on edge.

This maybe isn't his first encounter with people who are unnaturally placid.

"Are they for you? The books, I mean."
angry_friendship_wolf: (Default)

[personal profile] angry_friendship_wolf 2017-08-12 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
"Isn't there anybody who can help you with that?"

If Yamato's voice sounds wary, that's because he's super wary right now.

"Are you waiting for someone?"

The girl has short blonde hair, ears full of piercings, and a babydoll T-shirt that says "PWN THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION." She appears to be bussing tables.

"Maybe I can find 'em for you."

She sounds kind of...off. But YT's not one to judge. "You want something to eat or drink while you're waiting? I gotta take this MOOP back to the Bar anyway." She shifts the plastic tub she's using to bus stuff from tables.

[personal profile] feminine_menace 2017-08-12 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
"Oooo-kay," YT says.

Maybe she's autistic or something?

"I'll leave you to it then."

YT clears tables for a while. She goes out, takes a walk around the garden, comes back. All in about an hour.

The chick is still sitting there. Just, like, sitting there. YT's not sure that she's moved at all. It's kind of freaking her out.

"You're still here?"

iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-12 06:36 am (UTC)(link)
Ooh, paper books! And scrolls, too! Neat! The giant of a Guardian drinking chamomile tea at the bar watched her come to the table, and decides to approach her there.

"Are those your books?" he asks, beaming. "Sorry for intruding. I'm Baze Malbus, by the way. I just love paper books."

(OOC: Baze is coming in as a living Guardian in an AU where the Empire never came to power. Aaaah, Tranquil!Ysalwen is so sad and disconcerting as hell!)
iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze smiling (smile)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-12 06:52 pm (UTC)(link)
"Pleasure to meet you, Ysalwen," Baze says, placing his hand on the back of the chair oppozite her. "Do you mind if I sit? What ars you waiting for? Is this your first time in the bar?"

Baze has so many questions! How big is the library? Has she been to the library here yet? Is it her job to collect the books?

So, so many questions.
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-12 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay, that's a little weird. A little. Baze shrugs her unnatural calmness off as just the way she is.

"Thank you," he says, settling his bulk into the chair. He straightens his Guardian robes over his knees. "Fetch you? You can't go back to the tower yourself?"
