Staff Meeting, Friday Afternoon (after classes)

The lounge was set up for another faculty meeting, with snacks and pastries and cold drinks and hot drinks and everything moddable between. It was important to cover all the culinary basics when you were dealing with so many different kinds of people.

Anakin's lips quirked up. Imagining Bel as a pussycat would definitely happen the next time he saw him.

"Ex-wife, huh?" he said. "Last I heard, he was doing a threesome thing while living in a hotel run by a vampire with a soul."

"Vampire, not a surprise," Drake said. "But threesome? Far as I know, the Colethazor doesn't like to share. Awww, maybe high school made him a better demon."
sith_happened: (Anakin: lectured at)

"We should add that to the brochure," Anakin said dryly.
carpe_demon: (I'm adorable and I know it)

Drake grinned. "Am I detecting a wee note of hostility? Somehow, I'm not surprised."

"We weren't wildly fond of each other, no," Anakin replied. Shocking, huh?
carpe_demon: (I'm smirking)

Drake clutched at his heart. "Color me shocked," he snickered. "Even in the Underworld he Did Not Play Well With Others. If you were weaker, he wouldn't notice you unless he had a use for you. If you were as strong or stronger, he'd either want your approval or hate you. I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say door number three?"

Anakin inclined his head. "He devoted most of my senior year to flinging himself at the vampire."
carpe_demon: (I'm giving this some thought)

"He always had a bit of a fang fetish," Drake mused. "Vampires are exiled from the Underworld where we're from. Big mess with not recognizing the Source's authority. Cole'd work with them anyway as his own little rebellion."
sith_happened: (Anakin: making an entrance)

"As payback for being the Source's puppet, or just to be annoying?" Anakin asked.
carpe_demon: (O RLY?)

"Depended on what channel he was on that day," Drake said. "There's grr argh, I'm an evil demon and I'll do whatever it takes to get the job done; or I hate everyone so I'll break the rules; or even I'm tormented by my sooooooul so I don't know what I'm doing." Drake put his hands on his hips and rolled his eyes. "Honestly, it was impossible living with him sometimes."
sith_happened: (Anakin: amused)

"Only sometimes?" Anakin replied.

"Most of the time," Drake said. "I had to smack him all the time. Always bitching about having a soul and not wanting it, when there I was, oh so very envious of him."
sith_happened: (Anakin: all that I am)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] sith_happened 2009-09-28 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
"I only tried to smack a few times," Anakin said, sounding regretful. "So he got you the gig here, then?"
carpe_demon: (Why is there pudding on the ceiling?)

"Nah, he just hooked me up with the Sorcerer to get myself turned human," Drake said. "He was pretty surprised I wanted to spend my last year teaching kids, but what better way to leave my mark on the world than enriching young minds about books and the power of love? I need to help him out before my time's up next year, but until then my time is my own."

"The power of love?" Anakin repeated. "Really? Do they need that encouragement?"
carpe_demon: (I'm talking to my BFF the Colethazor)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] carpe_demon 2009-09-28 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
Drake gave Anakin a Look. "You think these youngsters know about love? Real love? Hormones, sex, yeah. But real love? Epic love?"
sith_happened: (Anakin: *gives attitude*)

[personal profile] sith_happened 2009-09-28 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
"I think it's very difficult to find that kind of love in stories, too," Anakin replied. "They tend to gloss over the hard realities."
carpe_demon: (I'm giving this some thought)

[personal profile] carpe_demon 2009-09-28 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
"Not all of them," Drake said. "And I won't gloss over the ugly parts. Love can be tragic. Sometimes love can really suck. But better to have loved and lost than...yadda yadda yadda."
sith_happened: (Anakin: woe)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] sith_happened 2009-09-28 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
Anakin's eyes grew shadowed. "I don't know. I could have saved everyone a lot of pain if I'd yadda yaddaed."
carpe_demon: (I'm taking this very seriously really)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] carpe_demon 2009-09-28 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Thought you said you were married?" Drake said, instantly intrigued. "Something happen before that?"
sith_happened: (Anakin: Padme says "don't do it")

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] sith_happened 2009-09-28 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
"First marriage," Anakin said shortly. "She died."
carpe_demon: (I'm giving this some thought)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] carpe_demon 2009-09-28 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
"Did she love you?" Drake asked gently. "Did you love her? Because whatever happened, those moments would've brought light to the universe, even if it was for a short time. And that light never really dies."
sith_happened: (Default)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] sith_happened 2009-09-28 02:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Anakin shrugged. "And when she died, it destabilized the entire galaxy."

If by galaxy, we meant "Anakin."
carpe_demon: (I'm scratching my head)

Re: Before the Meeting [09/25]

[personal profile] carpe_demon 2009-09-28 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
"But would that have happened even if you hadn't loved her?" Drake asked.
sith_happened: (Anakin: *goes a smiting*)

"No," Anakin said firmly.
