Barry is dying.

Or rather, he feels like he's dying.

Actually, he feels like he'd rather be dead than whatever this is.

After a week of coming and going in Milliways and encountering friends who were sick and all the people who were down with it while he felt fine, Barry had figured he was safe.

But, as it turns out, his metahuman metabolism only managed to combat the bug long enough to lull Barry into a false sense of security, then quit the fight abruptly. Now, Barry is that guy, the one who never gets sick, but when he does get sick he gets it the worst of all.

On a couch near the fireplace, in a nest made up of ALL the blankets and wrapped up to his head, Barry suffers. He had every intention of quarantining himself in a room upstairs, but the trek was too much. So now he's huddled on the couch with his knees tucked up to his chest and just the top of his head sticking out of the blankets, with rats bringing him soup and more tissues to replace those covered in glittering day-glo orange snot overfilling a nearby small trash can.

His tablet is propped on a nearby coffee table, and Barry is watching old episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Don't judge him, just pity him and his miserable state.

Guide enters the Bar from his door smoke trailing in from behind him. He's covered in healing burns and bruises. The Bar is not what he wanted to find today but he will take the respite.

He heads towards the garage but halts when he sees Barry. The scene before him is almost comical.

"You are ill?" he asks, or states. The bright orange snot is confusing to him though, that's not right even for his kind.

Guide recoils a little, most Human illnesses can't be spread to his kind, but one. And that one can kill anyone infected, Wraith and Human. Who knows what he can get here.

"Is it catching?" he asks.

Oh, hey, it's Barry! That's great, Baze adores Barry. But, wait! Oh, no! He seems sick! That's terrible.

Baze carts two cups of Comfrey Leaf tea--a mild tasting, amber brew said to help with colds--over to Barry and offers him one. "You got it, too? I'm so sorry you're sick!"

Baze has a riotous rainbow of colorful glitter on his sleeves, and day-glo orange spots on his face. He's clearly sniffling.
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-15 08:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"You're welcome," Baze says, dragging a chair over with his foot and all but collapsing into it. He cradles the warm mug in his hands, sipping slowly and hoping the tea soothes his sore throat.

"So how long have you been sick?"

"'Bout a week," Baze grumbles, sagging in his chair--as much as he can sag, in armor. "I don't blame you for huddling up under blankets."

Baze sneezes forest green glitter into a handkerchief he pulls out of one of his many pockets. "Chirrut doesn't have it yet. I think he's immune. I'm so envious."
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-15 08:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"Bless me? What for?" Baze says, blinking down at the blanket-swaddled young man.

"Yeah, unfortunately no medicine I know of even touches this cold. It's all tea and soup and handkerchiefs."

Baze shakes glitter out of his, which has a yellow smiley face embroidered on the corner of the fabric.

Baze raises an arm to protect his face from the shower of glitter. "Whoa," he says, eyes wide. "Are you okay?"
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-15 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, Barry.

"Don't apologize," Baze says, holding up his free hand. "You're sick! Sneezing is beyond your control. No wonder you're miserable, if you're having fits like that."

Jay sets a large pot of lemon, honey, ginger tea down next to Barry's tablet, turning away to sneeze red glitter. "Fuck this shit." He flops down next to Barry, happy to watch with him. Unless Barry wants him to go away.

"It'll pass. It always does." Jay sighs.

"Yeah, I'm okay. Worried about the Hive drones. The next generation are due to be born soon and the adults are... tense."
