[Rey is still seething after her Sans encounter, as she speaks through gritted teeth into her phone:]

You see that jackass skeleton anywhere near the bar, kick him out. He's worn out his welcome.

[Danse might have warned Rey about him before, but this time it's serious.]
circumitus: I honestly wish I could say that I was surprised. (so you threw a sword at me last night)

[The fact that he's not pressing the matter is a refreshing change of pace. No prying questions, no goading or pushing the subject further. She's relieved when she speaks:]

Thanks.

[The question he does ask piques her curiosity, though.]

Sure. Had to step out for a bit-- [cool down after Sans' bullshit] --but was going to swing back to take care of some things. [Namely a table she might have flipped. Stress ball concept idea sounds better.]
circumitus: I was worried that Michael Jackson was ordering takeout from heaven. (thank god they found balloon boy...)

[There's no goodbye when she hangs up. She's swinging back around to the bar, and steps inside in time to find Danse cleaning up the minor little messed she made before storming out earlier.]

Oh, um. Sorry about that.

[He really does -- and in the worst way possible, in Rey's case. What he considered being "concerned" translated more to an antagonistic form of interrogation, prying in ways that's too personal for her to divulge after being goaded so many times.

[But at least she can appreciate Danse seemingly making an effort to try and remedy that leftover frustration, as she stares at the weird weapon design. She does pick it up, inspecting the pistol further to find what makes up the ammunition.

[Oh. Hello again, stress balls.]


You made this?
circumitus: I ONLY KNOW HOLA. (EVERYONE IS SPEAKING SPANISH)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-22 02:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's a little bit of both, though more the former than the latter. She didn't think there was much to work with to manufacture a gun here... shoddy or not.

[So she shakes her head.]
Um, no. No, it's fine.

[Taking Danse's word for it, she uses the crude firearm to take aim at the familiar candle placed in her line of sight.

[And pulls the trigger at the infernal thing to see what happens.]

[...Oh. That was cool.

[Rey lowers the makeshift piece and blinks. Having never fired anything like a Nerf gun before, or even a bloodless game of laser tag, the concept of shooting a firearm not intended to kill its target is... different. Not unheard of, just different.

[And, hey. It comes with a hell of a lot less consequences than stabbing someone for pissing you off.]


This is great. [She makes a strange sound that might resemble a laugh.] I like it.
circumitus: ...'cause my cocaine successfully went through airport security. (doing a small happy dance)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-23 01:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, really.

[Rey happens to like different.]

Okay. [She nods before drawing her aim once again at the trio of candles Danse placed in her line of fire. For someone who's adept in most forms of combat, speed is hardly an issue. The shots made might as well be one, but three stress balls land hits on each candle.

[After, she brings the gun back down, a spark of approval in her eye. Most excellent.]
What do you call this thing, anyway?
circumitus: (i'll feed your fingertips to wolverines)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-26 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
It's a gun enough. If nothing else, it makes for good target practice.

[Only not really, with bullets the size of the stress balls. But hey, the thought gets Rey going:]

"Destresser", maybe? [She scoffs at herself.] Sorry, not very good with names, either.
circumitus: ...'cause my cocaine successfully went through airport security. (doing a small happy dance)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-29 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah?

[It's Rey's turn to be surprised about Danse's reaction. Not that he strikes her as the type who'd shoot a harmless name suggestion down with harsh criticism, but he does seem genuine about it.]

All right, then. Guess that works for now, unless something better comes up later.

[Spoilers: There won't be anything better. That gun is going to have to live with being called "the Destresser" for the rest of its natural life.]
circumitus: I was worried that Michael Jackson was ordering takeout from heaven. (thank god they found balloon boy...)

[And yet he created a gun that shoots stress balls instead of lethal ammunition. But he did it with the utmost sincerity!

[Rey, on the other hand, pretends to give a thoughtful pause for a moment after Danse's question.]


Mm, well. Still have an itch to punch someone, so... yes. That'd be a good idea.

[Because it's better than delivering a fatal punch to a skeleton.]
circumitus: She was still in her dress and I was still in my bridesmaid dress. (just made out with the bride)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-31 01:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, that's debatable. Do you know where you are?]

Funny. Didn't much peg you for being the litterbug type. [Not that Rey is going to preach, here. She's no environmentalist when it comes to making the gods clean up after them whenever they wreck things around here.] But sure. Outskirts it is.

[She doesn't have anything to pack, so she just takes the newly-named Destresser and heads out, leaving the door open for Danse.]

[Since Danse is the one with the idea in the first place, Rey lets him take the reigns on where to go once they're out. She casts him a sidelong look at his question, because... seriously?]

It's... someone who leaves junk in public places, usually for someone else to clean up or just make a mess.

Don't really care if it's the gods who have to deal with it, one way or another.
