 It was a warmer night than one might expect in February, and there were plenty of people out and about, milling around at bars, shops, and cafes- All of which had signs offering deals and good times.

On street corners buskers posed as statues and played songs for change, filling the city with sound and life as people celebrated being a day closer to the weekend.

Tomorrow there might be rain, but tonight it was dry and pleasant enough, and it seemed as if everyone was taking advantage of the fair weather.

He'd had several drinks tonight, all thanks to generous mortals, and though he was alone, Winter was surrounded by strangers. After a few goes on the karaoke machine, and accidentally charming a few mortals, the little Pixie stumbled out onto the street for some fresh night air.

He was still singing softly to himself, even as he nearly wobbled off the pavement in his slightly inebriated stupor.

All of a sudden, there was a gentle nudge to the younger man's shoulder, John edging in between the gutter and the decidedly wobbly pretty little thing to steer him clear of a particular tumble and provide a close eye on his progress.

He'd always been an older brother; it was good to be able to do it again, even in small doses. The memory gave him a slight pang, but he brushed it off and cast an eye over at the other man. "You okay there, man?" came the surprisingly gentle rumble from John's mouth, clearly concerned.

Winter giggled, and had his wings not been carefully bound against his back, and hidden beneath his sweater, they'd have fluttered happily. "I am very well. I have had beer! Much of it, in fact. At first it was awful, but soon I warmed to it- Or it warmed to me."

He grinned, wobbling a bit again, then bounced happily on his heels. "Everyone was so nice to me- I think they are waiting for me to go back inside, but I started walking, and now I can't remember which bar I began in," he confessed with a soft chirp of laughter.

Oh, Lord. Young drunks. John shook his head, torn between amused and rueful, but quickly enough flicked his eyes up to the younger man, keeping shoulder-to-shoulder with him. Just in case.

Maybe an undergrad? Or just some school kid on fake I.D. This guy had the sort of prettiness that just emphasised his youth. "Sounds like you had a good night out," he said, warmly, "and yeah, beer is an acquired taste. You get used to it, and then you start to like it. You got anyone making sure you get home on your first bar crawl, kid?" John could always phone someone for the guy. Or shove him in a cab.

"My brother, Willy, is out with his mortal love, the silly little blind man," Winter huffed. "And Phouka is... I don't know, actually. He is somewhere. I won't bother him though. He is very busy, I think. ...Very important," he babbled.

John's eyebrows went into the stratosphere at the mention of 'mortal love'. What the fuck had he stumbled into? Mutants weren't immortal as a rule, although he had heard some rumours about ancient mutants living through centuries and the like. Holy Grail blood of Christ conspiracy theory bullshit, in his opinion.

Did this mean the world was full of all sorts of other stuff? His mind teetered at the possibility.

"Well, how are we gonna get you home safe and sound then?" John asked, trying to be delicate, trying to focus. He suddenly wondered if this guy knew he wasn't human. Strictly speaking.

Sober, Winter may have had an inkling that his companion wasn't a normal mortal. However, in his current state he simply had loose lips and no filter. ...A dangerous thing for a vulnerable little Pixie.

"I live... Um. I wrote it down," he said, emptying his pockets. He had no keys, no wallet, just a few pound notes and a piece of paper with his address on.

"I live there," he said, offering the man the slip of paper. "It can't be far, I walked from there to here."

Regardless of species-ish issues, John shoved the lingering unease down so he could focus better on taking care of this kid. And that was all that mattered, whether he was mortal or not; whether John was normal or not. Sure, John had a particular fondness for getting mutant teenagers back on the right track, but he wasn't about to let some pretty little dude wander home drunk without an escort.

Taking the slip of paper, John scanned the address. Within walking distance. Right. He pulled out his phone, stopping them both for a second while he called up a map and figured out directions.

"It's this way," he murmured, glancing around and setting off on their path again - but when he tucked his phone away, he pulled out his lighter, the temptation to be on guard too strong to resist.

"And I'm John. You got a name, cutie?"

"I am Winter," the pixie chirped, teetering slightly as he walked at the man's side. "Winter Wisp- It is nice to meet you, Mr. John."

Even after taking his mortal potion, Winter wasn't terribly tall. In fact, he stood less than 1.7 meters high, which meant he was almost always looking up at people when he spoke- Something that only made him appear even younger than he already did.

John opened his mouth to say It isn't Mr.- but closed it. Whatever. Normal people didn't have names like 'Winter Wisp' either, not even if their folks were hippies. And the kid - if he was a kid - looked too young to be the child of some starry-eyed Woodstock types. (Maybe Burning Man. Maybe.)

Shaking his head a little, John blew out the air in his lungs before taking a deep breath, and added up what he knew: having added up what he knew, he realised it wasn't much. And probably wasn't any of his business. Mutants were underground now, why the fuck should anyone else's wish to lie low ping his radar?

Glancing over-and-down at the kid, John stuck a protective arm out as they got to the corner to ensure 'Winter' didn't go stumbling into traffic, and dropped it when the traffic cleared and the lights changed, crossing the street and checking for his...charge. "It's no problem," he said, finally, when they were on the other side: "I keep an eye out for folks, that's all."

winter_wisp: (heee)
From: [personal profile] winter_wisp
"Like a guardian or a knight," Winter replied, pretending to swing a sword as he spoke. "How very noble."

He slowed as they neared a cafe, pulling away from the man and pressing his face against the glass.

"Oh! Look at all those cakes! We should get some," he decided, heading inside before John could reply.

That drew a fond snort from John, but the delight of the kid made him think about it rather than simply roll his eyes dismissively.

"I grew up taking care of my little sister," John told him. He supposed it was guardian-like. Same with the mutant runaways he'd helped out, or the activists on campus, the queers, the mutants, the folk who didn't fit in and would not stay quiet. He'd loved them in his own way, proud of their struggle, been sure of their purpose and potential, and watched their back.

He'd even killed to see his kind safe, although he doubted that was strictly noble.

His train of thought was disturbed by Winter's sudden delight, leaving John standing on the sidewalk. He did roll his eyes then, sighing, and followed after. He looked over at the guy behind the counter with a wry amusement, and then flicked his eyes to the blond as he took out his wallet: "I can get you a little cake," he told the young man, trying to put some boundaries on the situation to ensure that Winter didn't just drunkenly stuff himself and end up puking on the pavement.

"No, it is my treat," Winter replied, pulling some bills from his pocket. I want to take home cakes for my kin to share- How many cakes will this buy?" he asked the man behind the counter.

The young server looked slightly baffled, glancing over at John before answering. "Um, I can give you a box of pastries, I guess. We can't keep 'em for tomorrow, so they're half off. Is that alright?"

"Yes!" Winter chirped happily. "I would like them all in a box, except two of them. One for me, one for my friend Mr. John."

The server hesitated, then shrugged as he took the bills. "Sure mate, whatever you want."

Hex had gone out to dance but had had a run in with a bloke he'd once sort of seen and it had been uncomfortable, so he'd left. He was walking to the nearest tube stop when he saw a familiar looking young man.

"Winter," he called, then got closer and realized the lad was sloshed. "Been out with your mates?" he asked.

From: [personal profile] winter_wisp
"The mortals bought me beer!" Winter chirped cheerfully. "It was dreadful, but also good, and now I can feel music beneath my skin."

Stumbling again, this time he caught hold of Hex's arm to stop himself from falling, and then giggled happily.

From: [personal profile] just_hex

"Ah, yeah, mate. Beer will do that to you," he chuckled. "Are you done having fun? Ready to go home? I was going home...but I could see you home if you like." He didn't fancy a long walk but he'd do it.

From: [personal profile] winter_wisp
"Nooo," Winter whined. "I do not want to go home. Where are you going? I will come with you," he decided, hooking his arm with Hex's and bouncing happily.

The pixie didn't smell of alcohol at all. Instead he simply smelled even sweeter than usual. Like freshly made fudge or expensive toffee.

just_hex: (Default)
From: [personal profile] just_hex

"Oh, well...I was going to call it a night, mate. Had a run in at the club so I was just going home. Do you want to stay out? We could get a bite or find somewhere else to dance if you like," Hex offered.

Date: 2015-02-22 03:47 am (UTC)
winter_wisp: (Default)
From: [personal profile] winter_wisp

"No, I will come home with you," Winter decided, seeing nothing wrong with that. "We will have a sleep over. We can share secrets beneath the blankets, and cuddle."

Date: 2015-02-22 03:50 am (UTC)
just_hex: (Default)
From: [personal profile] just_hex

"Sleep with you?" Hex replied, his eyes going round. Winter was delightful but he wasn't sure he knew the pixie well enough to do something like that. "Are you sure? Is that something you just...do?" he asked haltingly.

Date: 2015-02-22 03:55 am (UTC)
winter_wisp: (ponder)
From: [personal profile] winter_wisp
"I sleep most nights, yes," Winter nodded. "Do you not? We can stay up, if you rather. We can sing songs and share stories."

It was so innocent that Hex felt foolish for balking initially. It was nothing. Nothing at all. He'd slept with his fellow soldiers in battle. He'd slept with his mates when he'd been young. It was just sleep.

"Um, no. We can...whatever you like. I was going to take the tube...but you hate the train, don't you?"

Date: 2015-02-22 04:04 am (UTC)

"It's a metal tube of death and sadness," Winter replied with a nod.

Hex reached into his wallet to check his money.

"We'll have to find an ATM. I don't have enough for a cab," he said, showing Winter the meager notes.

Date: 2015-02-22 04:20 am (UTC)
winter_wisp: (spikes)
From: [personal profile] winter_wisp
Winter took the money, and though it took quite a lot of effort, turned the small bills into much larger ones.

"Is that enough?" he asked, offering them back.
