I'm on the wrong side of heaven and the righteous side of hell

Prompt 1

[Night time while on the sea is one of Velvet's preferred time to be out on the deck of the Van Eltia. Most of the crew is below either eating in between their loud bouts of conversation and laughter or already hunkered down for the night. It means the quietest and emptiest place on the ship is on the deck with the few hands are still working to keep the ship moving along their course. Most of them don't bother to seek her out or attempt to talk to her when she's out and about, moving about their tasks while giving her space.

She's taken to sitting here and letting her gaze drift out over the quiet of the sea. In the dark of night she can even see the stars reflected in the distant stillness of the water, only broken when the Van Eltia cuts through it and disturbs the calm. On nights like this the sea is very much like Velvet, calm and serene on the surface but underneath lurks an immense danger - one capable of claiming any life that's unfortunate enough to fall in. It's something Velvet is reminded of every time they happen to be on board the ship on a night like this one. Sometimes a storm can come out of no where and threaten to consume everything that manages to get swept up in its raging waters. Only few are brave enough to face it down so it only seemed to make sense that Velvet would find herself aligned with those same individuals.

A light blooms behind her as the door that leads below deck opens and Velvet turns her head a small bit to see just who's coming up. Chances were good that if it wasn't one of the pirates then they were up here to find her.]

Prompt 2

[They've taken up a couple of rooms at the local inn and Velvet has commandeered the kitchen in order to make a meal. Just because she can't taste the food doesn't mean that she can't still cook. Usually she has Laphicet as her taste-tester so all of her dishes come out relatively good and hardly anyone ever complains about them (unless she's made mabo curry for the fifth time in a row). Tonight she's made a pork dish with a side of vegetables and potatoes.

For after the meal she's made pudding but only the young malak is aware of that fact as they're all sitting down to eat. Seeing as how Velvet can't actually enjoy her own meal, she can take the opportunity to look around at the others. Velvet has always enjoyed this part of cooking - getting to see how it's enjoyed, to see how their faces light up with the first bite.]

Prompt 3

[Wildcard. Can be canon or otherwise. Anything goes!]

...Velvet? Ah, you were up here!

[Laphicet appears in said light that seems to halo him for a moment before shutting the door behind him. He's quick to approach Velvet's side. Just wanting to check up on her since it's getting later, whether she intends to try rest or not, though they don't technically need it. They may as well try make the most of the chance to around everything going on when they can.]

You okay?
laodicean: (Stasis Force)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-08 11:14 am (UTC)(link)
Hm? Ah, you just weren't with the others, so I wanted to check you were alright.

[Not..necessarily physically. He's aware she can handle herself fine in that regard most of the time, with the support of his healing artes. But just in general. She's often fretting over him and how he's doing, so he feels comfortable enough at this point to return that.

He joins her, easily approaching her as he looks from her to the water, the light playing against the waves in ripples of light against the otherwise darkness.]

I think she does it to get us to laugh.

[To lighten things, amid the general tense and uncertain moments and situations they find themselves in. Magilou has her sort of role she's fit into in their strange group, as does everyone else. This is just the role she's taken on. To cheer them up. At least, as far as Laphicet figures.]

When the moon is smaller? Hm. I guess so. When it's darker like this. It's....peaceful though. Being out here watching the water, even at night.
laodicean: (Elixir Vitae)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-14 09:05 am (UTC)(link)
Hm. [He'll....just let the Magilou thing slide. She's never been the biggest fan of the witch anyway, so he kind of expects Velvet's patience to be thin where Magilou is concerned.

Instead, he focuses on Eizen. The water.]

It's pretty. I think what I like about it, the ocean, the horizon, is the possibilities. What we mind find, what we might do when we get there, what we might see. Who we might meet. It's...kind of scary too, but it's exciting, more than that, I think.

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-14 10:56 am (UTC)(link)
Home? I guess.....the headquarters were like a home before. With Lady Teresa. But now I'm not so sure.

[Home is where someone lives. Where they work, where they sleep. Laphicet, none of them have that. Except perhaps the ship itself, or the prison they made their base of sorts to work from in storing their things and having somewhere safe to return to from their travels.]
laodicean: (The Beginning)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-14 11:38 am (UTC)(link)
A person....or people. So then, my home is with you, Velvet! And Eizen and everyone else.

[But mostly Velvet. Of course. Laphicet can't help but smile as he looks from the ocean and it's waves, the ripples of light across the surface of it, to her. The one who gave him a name, the one who saved him, who he said he'd follow no matter what.]
laodicean: (Triflare)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-16 01:00 am (UTC)(link)
I will!

[An easy enough agreement or promise to make. Mostly because he has no intention of letting anyone or anything come between him and Velvet. At least not if he has anything to say about it. This was never supposed to be easy. But in spite of that, in spite of everything, he found his way to her and they've stuck together since.]

Velvet too, right? You'll protect your home too.
laodicean: (Triflare)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-16 07:24 am (UTC)(link)
I wouldn't let anyone threaten your home either, Velvet.

[He gives a determined look before resting his arms at the rail, expression softening as he looks out to the water again. He never really considered the idea of home or family. Not until meeting Velvet and the rest. But now that he has, he's sure it's something he doesn't want to lose. Not now that he has found it.]
laodicean: (Surging)

[personal profile] laodicean 2017-03-17 07:46 am (UTC)(link)
Be myself? I can. I feel like I'm sort of still learning, but. I will, Velvet. And not just for you, but for myself too. You've shown me that, since you helped me.

[Well, sort of. Kidnapped. But hey, it worked out in the end. With Laphicet giving the group reason to band together in protecting and teaching the younger malak about so many different things he never experienced or questioned before, while his will was suppressed.]
