Hey, starlings. So, you’ve probably been wondering where the fuck I vanished off to, right? Normally I never vanish this long and whenever I do poof you’ll see a spontaneous little note of me somewhere and its only ever for like, a week or two at most. Well, its story time I guess. 
This’ll probably get a little long, so I’ll say this if you don’t wanna read: Long story short, Leo had a fucking nightmare breakdown like when I was 16 and just lost absolutely all interest in everything (gee, thanks depression) but is a-okay now after 2-3 months of fuckery and crying over a spilled pitcher of sweet tea. (Southerners don’t cry over spilled milk, we cry over spilled sweet tea.) Gonna start a fresh new kickin’ bagel and archive all my other ones ‘cause I think its a good thing for me to do and holy shit everything is overwhelming slightly still. Not dropping any threads or anything, moving them all over if I can and definitely following you delights from there immediately rapid fire style. 
I apologize if I worried you guys. Truly and deeply, I wish I would’ve had the capacity to say something sooner but your local ghost fucking ghosted out hardcore and then couldn’t y’know, express it. ‘Cause I don’t wanna bring that onto the platform where I try to keep things positive and light because I love giving y’all that safe space and it makes me happy. I just didn’t have the energy nor willpower to grant any warning and it hit me so fast and hard. 
If you wanna get the deets:

I’m barely awake and I just want y’all to know that Rae has an interesting habit when you actually get the jump on her: 
She flares. Gills, ears, ghibli hair poof-- all of it. She legitimately goes POOF. Bean toes are spread, webbing galore. Squeaks and various clicking noises. You manage to get the drop on the goo while she’s tired? All of this PLUS the oh so attractive string of curses in her native tongue followed up by flailing claws and arcs of electricity everywhere. 
She is a goddamn mess when you actually manage to get the drop on her and it is glorious.

nagyvr‌:
     Well, he’d dome some stupid stuff in his lifetime. He could fully admit to that. There was the time that he’d gotten his clothes taken away from a warlord and had to go through a galactic prison full of super-powered prisoners… completely naked.. That had been.. an interesting day for sure. “Yes ma’am.” Not that he didn’t already know worse. He’d lived through a literal hell that only him and one other being in the universe had ever had to deal with memories of it. Go figure it was someone that he didn’t really talk to much anymore. The Milano was a wonderful ship, and he could honestly say that he loved it with every once of his being and it showed. There were dents here and there–likely damage from his escapade only moments ago–but otherwise.. the ship was in wonderful health.  
     “Be there in a jiffy.” The man was careful when landing his ship, moving so that he could navigate the spacious cabin with general ease. hands moved to the controls, turning hings off and making sure the engine shut down properly before he hit a button for the bay doors to open up. He was sure the woman he was about to meet was going to be on edge, the best he could do was approach with as much care as he could. 
Tumblr media
     Once he may have been a little more careless, but he was familiar with how to approach things like this. Diplomacy wasn’t always his strong suit but he did his absolute best. A hand went to his mask and activated it to cover his face, hand then moving to rub the back of his neck. It was usually hard to gauge whether air on a planet was breathable or not, but he would do his absolute best to make sure that he would.. stay on the safe side. “Hey.. uh.. sorry about that whole thing again.” He would probably apologize more until he was told he was being stupid about it, sometimes even beyond that but. It was better sometimes to get one’s genuine apologies across. “Name’s Peter Quill. Ex advisor to the Kree, ex Emperor of Spartoi, current Gardian of the Galaxy.”
             Hiraeth didn’t care much either way. Her people were safe and so long as this one didn’t take a step too far, he’d be put under the proverbial wing as well and taken care of. If you weren’t an enemy then you were an ally, whether you were unaligned or not. Neutral parties were as much under their protection as any of her comrades and it seemed this one had just wound up in a bad situation and had ultimately tried to help. As fruitless as the effort was, she could give appreciation where it was due. The first thing she observed upon his arrival though was his ship. Definitely not an enemy cruiser or anything of the sort. “Wow, I haven’t seen an M-Ship in vargas,” she hums at the thought and idly waits until things are settled in. 
Tumblr media
What an unusual looking person, is her next thought. That mask was certainly something she’d never seen before but with the varied tech she’d seen in her lifetime, that wasn’t too surprising. It was an understandable move and an excellent one given the present state of things with everyone but her being decked head to toe in special hazmat gear. “Its fine, you were tying to help and I appreciate the sentiment. Just know that if you would’ve died in the crossfire, I would have been pissed and brought your ass back from the veil just to beat the proverbial brakes off you.” Ah, well she didn’t have much of a filter and politics didn’t suit her either. In the end, she appreciated his genuine nature but didn’t much care because it had all worked out. 
“Hiraeth, a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Peter.” However rocky the first few minutes had been. “Welcome to the Coalition ship, Nettle. I don’t care what your titles or ranks are, while aboard this vessel you’re a civilian and so long as you bring no harm to anyone here; you’re fine to do as you please. In short, keep your mask on until decontamination and neutralizing is done and-- if you hurt anyone here in any way or pose a threat?” A sharp toothed smile,”I’ll just rip your organs out while you’re still alive and eat them in front of your fading vision.” She turned her attention to her holopad again and hummed out her next words as if she hadn’t just threatened gruesome bodily harm,”Customized M-Ship, right? I’ll have an external diagnostics scan set up for you. If you’re particular about who puts hands on your vessel, I’ll simply provide the tools and parts for any repairs needed.”

Everything was new to Akira, hearing terminology and other facts that he wasn’t familiar was so exciting. A constant reminder that people weren’t alone. That there was always more beyond the boundaries of a comfort zone. Elation bloomed in his chest knowing he would continue to learn, see and do so much more.
“I haven’t tried eating dead planets though I much prefer strong emotions and desires and the occasional meat.”
Ah. Seems that was a pretty normal situation. People often take surface appearance and first impressions as a finality when there is so much more to a person that meets the eye.
“Let them underestimate you. Proving them wrong and crushing their existence with your successes is always so pleasing to the soul. Vindication does taste wonderful….”
He let out a pleased clicking purr at that, almost as if he’s had personal experience with such situations.
“I don’t see why they would even underestimate you. It is the brightest and smallest beings that could wreak the most havoc. I don’t see a vat of fury.”
His eyes twinkle, his glowing scales and feathers dimming as he lets out another huff of air.
“I see a perfectly capable being who could shake the foundations of a world if she so chooses…and those I find to be more dangerous than anything.”
Another mental laugh escapes his mind as she matches his glow and his glow began once more, matching in rhythm to the tinier being.
“What is Krell like? I have been meaning to stock up on some supplies and see if there’s anything worth looking out for. I’m a bit of a tourist, you see.”
            “Well you’re large enough to do so, honestly,” she chimed, crossing her knees and ‘sitting’ comfortably with her claws perched on her jaw. “Just don’t go eating inhabited planets, that’d be bad and we might end up fighting each other because of it. I’d feel terrible if that were the case. You’re such a cute little noodle.” Oh yes, she would certainly feel terrible if the ever came to odds. Granted-- it was probably purely because she was fully regarding the other as an ‘animal’ and not ‘person’ at the moment. A chuckle left her maw and she snickered at that cute clicking purr. “I agree, they apparently have something called a “Blue Ringed Octopus” that is incredibly small yet so venomous they can kill twenty-six adult humans within minutes. You’d think they’d learn from that alone not to misjudge smaller creatures.” 
Though that sudden onslaught of complimenting had the small Cnidari blinking owlishly. “Well, someone’s certainly a smooth talker,” she clears her throat and wrinkles her nose. It wasn’t easy to rattle her coral unless she was angry but certainly, a compliment done the right way did do the same. Her claws tap against her jaw and she thinks over the things she’s learned of Krell at the inquiry. “Well, its moon is pretty much destroyed due to a dormant Yalex waking up in it. A methane gas moon for the most part is all it was-- but Krell is hospitable. It has a similar structure to Earth in a way but is more Desert land than greenery. The Krellians are ridiculous little things, Elderbug Blate is a riot. They have festivals and those end up attracting what they call the “Abomination” because it’s just a large animal looking for food whenever he smells it. I’ve affectionately renamed him “Squidling” because he has a lot of tentacles on his back.”

     There was a slight shrug from the woman, metal tipped braids clinking softly against her armor before she decided on what she wished to say. “Well, that is certainly a good way to look at it.” Though she was a lone warden out here, she handled herself well. She was strong-willed and even moreso stubborn when it came down to what she had to do to protect the people of Thedas. Bandits that tried to bully her learned this the hard way. She may have been Dalish, and she was certainly not a pushover on her own. 
     When the other seemed excited to see her blade, the redhead reached back to grab the handle and pull it out, leveling it out when she could grasp the hilt with both hands before leveling it out and holding it flat for her hand to move along the carved surface of the side. Though there was a questioning look, she didn’t speak on it aside from trying to decide how to explain what she was. “Grey Wardens are those that fight the Darkspawn hoard in their own roads. We stop them from harming innocents, if we can. Sometimes we go into the deep roads with a small caravan and clear them out every so often.” 
     “Our order has existed for.. a very long time. We conscript others, but not out of pity.. due to a few things about what it takes to become one of us.”
               “Think of it this way, what good will it do you to panic or be upset over being lost? None. You’ll just end up confusing yourself or otherwise cause yourself unnecessary stress. Might as well just enjoy the scenery and figure it out while you go.” A bit funny coming from the Cnidari that was almost always angry in some way or another. Though truly, she did love finding new places filled with a variety of creatures and places she could explore and learn about. There was a never ending thirst for knowledge when it came to her. A hum in her throat, she brightened up all the more when that blade was revealed and she floated a bit closer to get a good look at it with a bewildered delight expressed on her features. 
Tumblr media
Absolutely stunning. “I absolutely love swords and blades of all kinds, honestly, They’re so fascinatingly beautiful.” Her claws perched close to it and she looked at the carved section of it, tapping her claw once against the metal to listen to the resonance. “Beautiful! What was is forged with? The ore is gorgeous and its density sounds perfect!” She was already making plans to figure out how to find this ‘master smith’ and go see the rest of his works if it was something she could do. Though that explanation had her ears for the time being and she tilted her head slightly. “Darkspawn? I’m assuming those are some kind of malevolent creatures? Or people with an edgy group name?” 
They sounded ridiculous to her but if there was a group that existed purely for fighting them-- well they couldn’t be anything good. “I don’t understand what that means or why there’d be any pity involved with recruitment at all, honestly. It sounds to me like you’re doing something to save others from travesty and pity naturally shouldn’t be part of that equation either way.”

warwcn‌:
     There was a soft chuckle at the other’s words, the woman having decided that staying a distance was what was best for herself, personally. But she shrugged, those sharp emeralds watching the other. “Well I have seen… a lot of strange things in my time of living here. I figure what’s one more?” She didn’t want to cause more distress despite there being some curiosity at a thing or two concerning the woman before her.. but she would find out eventually. “The best way to learn about a person it to talk with them and get to know them. Plus, you’ve already stated that you’re kinda leakin’ some dangerous fluids. May be best to consider myself safer standing back and speaking to you rather than the hands-on approach.” 
     There was another laugh at mention of the tattoos, smile remaining on her face when she shook her head. “It’s not actually a Ferelden practice, I hear it’s actually much more common in Rivaine. Both of which are places here in Thedas.” There was a small shrug, too. “My brother once got a mabari tattoo.. some, unlike mine, have other meanings. In Ferelden, Mabari mean strength.” She only knew about this tattoo because she actually had dared him to get it. He had to be sneaky about it, but he did it. Much to their mother’s surprise, and disapproval, but he did it. She remembered that letter, their mother had been so upset. They had only been in the service of the King for a couple weeks when that had happened. Hawke herself had a high dragon over her right shoulder, not that it would be seen unless she wore something that showed her biceps.
      Though her expression sobered up from any previous humor the second the other responded to her mention of slavers. “You may do what you wish with them, if you encounter any. Personally, my favorite thing is allowing them to meet my blade, whether they’re ready for it or not.” The woman put her friends safety first, they were all dangerous in their own rites and she knew they could handle themselves if they needed to. But she would not sit idly by when there were beings that she had heard of. Today was a single day that she would leave by herself so that she might allow them a day to rest. She would fight for them, she would defend them.. she would live for them, and she would inevitably die for them.. if that was the call for the time. Though she could protect them better if she was alive. 
Tumblr media
     “Though there is law, there have been ways I have found around it. I worked as a mercenary before I became the Champion of Kirkwall. I learned all the ins and outs of the job.” Which meant part of it was finding out where the bodies were to go and how they were going to dispose of them.. then the lie they would tell to get around it.. unless they were attacked first.. which had been the most likely case in multitudes of encounters. before that, she was a member of the King’s guard. A more noble way to live, but she hadn’t saved much coin in the event having to move here was necessary. They had been in a bit of a tight situation when Loghain had decided to betray their king and leave them to the Hoarde of Darkspawn to fend for themselves. Hawke had barely dragged her brother to his feet and demanded him to run with her when the hoarde was getting closer to them. Though she was pulled from her mindset when she had brought up the cute little being on her shoulder again.
     “Sounds like I could leave one in Anders’ clinic and let them remove as much as they can there.. maybe keep a bucket of water in my room somewhere.” It sounded like the best plan, honestly. Anders had sick and wounded parties staying with him at all times.. though as a mage, he did his best to keep his clinic clean, there was only so much one could do. Especially in Darktown. Though she smiled all the more when the other seemed elated to even hear about her ownership of a dog. “He’s a very good dog. His name is Killian. Out of my three siblings, he took best to me.” Mabari chose their masters. It was much to her brother’s disappointment that he chose her and not him Bethany had told her that Carver had been jealous of that little detail. 
     “Yes, I refer to magic users. I have a few in my family.” The Hero of Ferelden was included, though she was unsure if someone she met only once before the fall of the original Ferelden Grey Wardens could be counted among her kinsmen. “But I will keep it in mind in the future.” The Warrior’s arms crossed over her chest as she watched the little creature work, head tilted in slight curiosity all the while. “You both sound like quite the pair.” She murmured, taking her eyes from the creature to check her blade, hand moving to pick it up and sheath it back on her back where it could stay in her possession and still be out of her way. Unlike one of her friends, she preferred the two-handed weapon that would deal the most damage.  
               “Honestly, humans are the most dangerous for me to be around. Not because they’re a threat to me but rather because they’re a threat to themselves with me as the catalyst for the harm done. They don’t take it seriously when I tell them to back off because they think I’m just bluffing or something and then-- well they’re lucky I’m on their side otherwise I’d let them suffer from my venom to learn a lesson purely out of spite.” The squish certainly was a spiteful little thing. She didn’t take kindly to being mishandled or handled in general like she was some kind of pet project to examine. She hums with thought and stretches her limbs a little, as best as she can given her condition. “Its refreshing to not be concerned about accidentally killing someone. You can ask away, cute avian. I’ll answer whatever you like.” 
Already she was associating the woman with the bird of her name. It was easier to be kinder when she thought of animals after all-- otherwise she’d probably be far more stand offish and attempting to keep the woman at arm’s length. It was interesting conversing with her, better to be inviting than to be crude now that her injuries were properly wrapped and there was no concern to be had. “I see, it sounds like an interesting practice. It seems like Thedas is a mixing pot of culture and that’s always fascinating.” Cnidari didn’t openly invite people to their world but once and it ended poorly, but that wouldn’t stop Hiraeth from being openly curious nonetheless. Yuva was gone but she still remained to carry it on and get her blood for what happened. “Oh, so they can mean different things? How wonderful~ Perhaps its similar to the tattoos the humans I associate with get.” 
Language wise, somewhat, she supposed. “They get various things etched on their skin but they have meanings of varying kinds from what I understand.” It seemed to her, humans were creative in all forms. Be they the humans she was familiar with or the humans elsewhere. They always seemed to have something similar to each other and always creative. Such a curious species. Though there’s no smile on her features to be found on the topic of the slavers and the small creature flexed her claws out of tension. “Sounds positively delightful. Perhaps during my stay here we should go head hunting?” Even if these weren’t her humans or allies, her motto still stood. She would ensure they got back alive. Be it from the worst outcome or the best, she would never allow such things to transpire with her in the vicinity. 
“Truly I don’t see the problem with taking out the trash but if there’s laws against it, I guess its a good thing I’m not bound or obligated to obey them either way. Plus, I can just eat them and they’ll never be found again.” A simple shrug, Hiraeth didn’t regard the human system of rank or law. They weren’t her laws, weren’t anything she had to obey and no one could honestly make her either. She was too archaic and too brash to be subjugated into obedience. Her frame coils up a bit and she tilts her head in thought,”A clinic? They’re perfect for that, honestly. Think less “What they can” and more “Oh fuck everything is sparkling? How the hell?” Because that’s precisely what a Pyotite can do in an hour if left unattended. A single pyotite can spread themselves over surface areas and clean everything in one go.” 
Tumblr media
Her little Pyo was honestly her pride and joy. As much a part of her as her own teeth and horns. Though the mention of her canine companion certainly had the Cnidari already glowing with delight again and she listens intently with her sharp ears twitching enthusiastically. What a lovely sounding creature! “Absolutely precious! I’d love to meet him! Its fascinating, most humans disregard the choice of the animal where their pets are concerned, to know he favoured you of your siblings is adorable.” She hummed, absolutely enthralled with it all. Truly, animals were the fastest way to her heart and she’d quite literally throw herself into any kind of danger for them. She holds her claws out for Pyo when he’s finished and lets the little one hop right on into her palm to replace himself as her clothing again. 
Mindful of her injuries, her little companion carefully shapes and forms to cover what’s comfortable before she turns her attention to the woman again with a smile. “Mages then, I’ll remember that. We are quite literally a pair. I don’t think there’s any way to separate us, even though Pyo is actually the hundredth Pyotite or so. Every time he replicates I know he’s gotten very old. Its a sad thing that they don’t have lives as long as us, but their offspring consume them and continue on for the rest of a Cnidari’s life.” Ah, the tears she’s shed over her Pyo going on without her were enough to fill the ocean for how long she’s lived, but it was a natural cycle, just the way things were. Though her attention immediately separates from that thought when she’s able to actually take note of the weapon. Before she wasn’t able to really see straight nor appreciate such craftsmanship, but she was quick on the draw this time. 
“What a beautiful sword, two handed-- is it a Greatsword or a Longsword?”

     The thought of being able to have something sweet had his tail going back  and forth quite happily. To be promised one or two would set any child up with happiness, “ M-Makes sense…I don’t want a s-st-stomachache. ” the thought of one made his ears shift down ever so slightly, but his tail still flicked happily, perhaps slowing in pace. Zee was just happy to have come across a nice  person such as her.
    Try and learn. Something his father once taught him. To get better at  something he must try and try again. To learn something he had to try and try  again. It was a cycle that kept going and going. Zee was also taught never to  give up, never to get discouraged. Though, that was much harder to do when his parents were no longer around to remind him of such. That loneliness ate  at him slowly, and just the thought of it made his ears flatten against his head, tail no longer moving side to side.
           There’s no shortage of tragedy in war. Being something that could provide comfort or hope when all else seemed to be crumbling-- Perhaps Hiraeth wasn’t the type nor the person who really could for most, but she’d do her best for the ones left behind. The ones who had everything ripped away from them and shoved into an impossible situation, trying their best to keep their head up even though it seemed for naught. She smiles at the happiness shown and smiles still when it fades with what she assumes is the thought of something painful. “You can come to my lab any time you want,” she hums, reaching up with her free hand to gently pat the other’s head. 
It wasn’t often she’d offer her space to others so freely but she wouldn’t hesitate for this little one. “Whenever you’re sad or something’s bothering you, you can always come by and talk to me.” To offer a safe haven of sorts, she supposed. If it would help, she’d certainly do all she could. She offered that toothy smile and reassurance easily, looking up to check doors for a moment before her steps stalled and she hummed. “Alright, here’s the kitchen, regular food first and then sweets after you’re done eating okay?”

     Tindel didn’t understand people sometimes. If someone warns another, and  they keep ignoring those warnings, then they get upset when something  happens to them. It made no sense to him, but then again that was the way of  life, right? There are going to be a lot of people who will be hard to understand. Thankfully, theses injuries weren’t anything too serious, and hopefully they did learn their lesson, “ No. I just help out…a helping hand when their hands are busy. It seems that their hands are busy, ” he paused for a moment, taking a  look at the men on the medical beds, “ They’re in good hands. ”
     Golden hues looked back at the other, “ Hiraeth, nice to meet you, ” he gave a kind nod in her direction, “ Hm, they just need some rest and some water  no doubt. I’ll check for any more problems when they’re more awake, ” the Altean let out a small chuckle from her words. Eat them? Well, he wasn’t so  sure on her species, but she was rather entertaining, “ Good, I’m glad you’re alright. You do look fragile, but I do know that looks can be deceiving. ”
              “A helping had is always needed where medics are concerned,” they always seemed short staffed when it came to the field. Perhaps why they had her dealing in it despite her main interest being warfare and biological weaponry. Such was the hand, she guessed. “Morons are in abundance and we don’t have enough bandages for the resulting consequences of their stupidity half the time so I only electrocuted them a little bit. I just basically tasered them with my physiological defenses.” A flicker of arcs across her tongue, she would fully admit she did enjoy putting people in their places but the results were often her having to treat them as well while they squirmed about it. It was good to have someone else do it so they wouldn’t be so bothersome about it. 
Tumblr media
There’s a cock of her brow and she wonders if he thought her joking when she said she’d eat them. Well, it wouldn’t be the first time someone assumed as such. “Give it about three hours and they’ll be groaning and whining about it,” she chimes with amusement in her tone. “Looks are definitely deceiving. Most are unaware I’m an extremely venomous creature unless I’m flaring my colours.”

“I didn’t know you could float, and that you like to anchor yourself to others while you do it. Just give a guy a warning next time alright?” He let out with a chuckle, the last of his surprise leaving his system with that exhalation. Once settled he began to walk again, shoving his hands into the pockets of his sweater. “Yeah, when you mix cold water with the Garrison’s AC system, you get a bunch of sniffles and orders for chicken noodle soup.” 
Though this tradition he upholds goes way back before his employment here, he knows what it’s like to be caught in the rain with no where to go. He remembers the pitiful looks and whispers that surrounded him when he would seek shelter in a cafe or gas station. A shivering, dripping homeless boy… Now that he can afford it, he leaves umbrellas under bridges and bushes for those who have yet to strike such luck as he has. 
Tumblr media
             “Oh, well I have my own field of gravity and atmosphere due to my internal ecosystem. Its why I do not need a suit or anything to go out in the field-- but I’ll wear a bell or something to warn you next time,” she snickers. Of course she found it incredibly amusing whenever she startled someone, but it wasn’t often that she actually used others as transportation either. “I actually don’t do it often, only to a select few.” A hum in her throat, she cocks a brow and mulls over the patients she’d had since coming here. Some of them did present with what was called the ‘common cold’ as well as the ‘flu’ as they referred to it as. Perhaps she should inspect the units to make sure they weren’t hoarding bacteria as well and worsening things? 
Another day, she thought. “Then I shall help as well. I’m none too keen on being sneezed on so frequently,” an obvious attempt at disguising her wish to help, but the Cnidari didn’t seem to give much else in that regard for it. “Is there any other gear humans need for such weather?”

The boundaries of biology and physics seem to be broken every day now that Earth is an intergalactic hub, and it will never not amazing her. The lieutenant’s eyes sparkled with awe in watching the bubble grow and then decrease in size; the magic of which piqued Dinah’s attention as well. A curious squeak left the now sleepy avian, blinking as Ayleen pecked her head with a kiss. “You be good Dinah, have fun in Hiraeth’s mini ecosystem okay?” With that she had Dinah sit up on her arm, “Whenever you’re ready.”

             It was hardly anything special to her, perhaps because it was just something she’d always done. Though the awe sparkling through this one’s face was certainly endearing and she couldn’t help but to chuckle a little. When it came to animals it was so much easier to get Hiraeth to be more warm and inviting. They were her weakness and it was one she didn’t mind in the slightest. “Alright then,” she hummed, claws outstretching to the avian as they held a slight tinge of flitting arcs on them. Making one like Dinah smaller took little effort and time and when she was done, she simply negated her field to place the creature in her ecosystem. “You may gather her whenever you please, she’ll be safe with me. She can screech and fly as much as she wants in there.”

❝To put it bluntly, thinking we, humans, are the only species is the galaxy is inherently arrogant. ❞ His shoulders shrug, just knowing that he had always been curious about life beyond the stars. If there were only humans in the galaxy, that would be so boring. Sure, he enjoyed people like himself most of the time, but what about those who were different. The ones who didn’t have to eat the same food every day, the ones who sported horns or even had prehensile extremities? ❝ Even as a child, my head was filled with questions. About whether I could get close enough to the stars, or if I could meet someone in another dimension or from another planet.  But we’re in a period of time where discoveries like that would be met with resistance and suspicion. ❞ Many wars and violence happened for less.
He reaches out as she touches his shoulder, fingers gently tracing along her forearm before letting his hand drop. It’s peculiar, the way his mind fills with questions about her but it’s not white noise anymore. ❝ I wonder, if I’d have made different choices if I’d be living a different life. If I was born in another century, would I feel as lost in life as I am now?  ❞ If he could see into the future, would he be happy? Would there have been so alternative to what his family experienced? Would Shisui still be alive? Would Sasuke feel different about what life had dealt him and would Naruto still have his parents ? 
❝ I hope this doesn’t come off as a stupid inquiry, but just how many planets or galaxies have you traveled to? ❞ And in retrospect, it doesn’t sound like a silly inquiry. ❝ Have you met many of the Paladins? ❞
            Ah, what a brilliant sort. Curious and fascinating. To find arrogance in the belief of a solitary creature remaining the only in existence was quite the way of thought. It was a rarity that Humans in general believed in something beyond the stars until they saw it for themselves from what she’d been brought to understand. (Apparently, those that did believe prior were ridiculed, but she had no coin to toss in that well.) The fingers playing along her skin are met with no resistance and she casually ‘floats’ herself a little higher to settle herself on his shoulder. She was certainly small enough to do so and it would appear as though nothing more than a stone in weight. “A brilliant deduction, most of your species are indeed too blinded by their own egotism to truly believe in anything else existing beyond them.”

Crossing her ankles and splaying her claws a little, she hummed in thought and tilted her head. Would it be so bad if she offered? It wasn’t like it’d be detrimental to the populace or possibly infringe on any protocol given his thought process. “Considering you are indeed, meeting someone from not only the stars but a different plane of existence as well already-- how would you like to go up with me then? I see no problem with taking you for a little trip and you’re quite the comfortable perch.” Alright, so she had to say something to make it seem a little less genuine on her end. She just wasn’t the type. However, at his deeper inquiry she found herself narrowing her eyes slightly and sighing. Everyone had their problems. 
“Yes to both. Everyone feels lost in their lives, at least once and sometimes for a long time. What era you’re from is irrelevant, its simply the nature of things to question and be confounded by the life you lead until you do something about it. And of course it’d be different, decisions make up everything in life and everything else. However, you’ve made them already. Living with them might be difficult but there’s someone out there who’s proud of you for continuing to do so.” For her, not so much, but humans were less solitary than she was. She made no connections if she could help it. Her only goals were to ensure that everyone came back alive and in one piece, not to get close to them. Despite how hard she tried though, some just tended to weasel their way in and she had accepted that by now. 
They were there to stay, she guessed and perhaps she was a little happy about that. “Numerous, darling. I’m nine hundred and eighty three, two hundred and thirty three in your solar cycles called ‘years.’ Its impossible to count how many I’ve been to.” Her ears twitch and she wrinkles her nose,”Hmn, they’re kind of a.. Recent occurrence where I’m concerned. I tend not to get close to people as it is so I avoid them if I see them, but I’ve seen a good handful so far.”
