"It would just be for a month, two at most. I haven't said yes yet, but- I think I should. I mean, how often am I going to get offers like this, Pip?"

He'd meant to tell Pippa his plan to travel to America over lunch, but things had been going so well, and they'd been having such a nice time of it. He just hadn't wanted to spoil it, and so they were lingering on the pavement, having been about to call for an uber when Fin had blurted out the fact that he'd been offered a small role in a major motion picture.

"A month or two? Fin, that's ridiculous! You can't. America is dangerous. And you know how it is right now with the election and all the shootings. No. No, I'm putting my foot down on this. you can't go," she said. Of course it was fueled by deep concern- she was so protective of Fin- but she dug her heels in on this and it didn't come off as worry, it just came off as bossy.

"I wasn't asking permission," Fin replied flatly. "See, this is why I didn't want to tell you. You always think you know what's best. You always have"

Fin didn't know it, but the sudden spike of anger he felt was enough to make his already wild magic strike out- Not at Pippa, but at the world. Though he wasn't so angry that it did any real damage. ...Instead it simply turned all the traffic lights in a four block radius red.

"It's only because I do know what's best," she huffed, her own magic reacting in response to his, twisting together with Fin's to amplify it. Traffic snarled and even the crossing lights stalled out, too. The wifi in the nearby cafe cut out.

"I'm just worried about you, Fin. This isn't the time for such a big change," she said.

Fin frowned, raking his fingers through his long hair. "Pip... It's not up to you, alright? I'm not asking, I'm just letting you know. I'm thinking I might do it, alright?" he replied, his tone growing sharper.

"This is stupid. Fin, please be rational about this. If nothing else, what about that fae fuck? You'll get sick again!" she insisted.

(Joint post with Fin and Pippa. If you'd prefer to tag just one put the name in your subject line XD)

For being so fucking big, this city was fucking small.

House had recognized Fin's voice first as he'd stepped out of a shop, but as soon as he realized that it wasn't just Fin standing there but also his sister, and they were arguing, his initial instinct was to back away slowly.

Unfortunately Pippa met his eyes before he got far enough.

"Oh, for fucks sake, Pip, really? You're going to drag someone else into this?" Fin sighed, looking over at House, then frowning to himself.

"Fine, sure, Greg, please tell my sister that she doesn't get to decide how I live my life."

Yes, this was literally exactly what House had been afraid would happen.

He held up his free hand that wasn't gripping the cane. "Look, I am not getting into this."

"Yeah, by all means, be the voice of reason. I've got a film lined up in America, and Pip here thinks I should turn it down," Fin scowled, oblivious to the fact that a passing cab had stalled out.

House glanced at the bookshop, then at the cab. "Please tell me you two aren't doing this."

Sunny figured out what was happening almost instantly.

She blinked and took in the madness before dipping into a convenience store to grab herself some candy before she settled in to watch this get worse, not unlike someone settling in at the movies.

It was good timing, too. Right as she was going out the door, the fire alarm inside went off.

Sunny broke off a square of chocolate and wondered how bad this would have to get before they noticed of their own accord.

Sunny worked chocolate around her mouth with her tongue thoughtfully. Swallowed. "So this is what it looks like from the outside." She had of course had plenty of fights with her own brothers.

Fin twisted out of her grip, scowling and rubbing his arm.

"It's for work, Pip. I'm an actor, I have to take whatever work I can get right now," he countered.

Felix had been enjoying the use of that wifi, trouncing a distant stranger rather soundly in Words With Friends. When his phone lost the signal, he no longer had an excuse to ignore the magic prickling at the back of his mind. He put the phone away in his jacket pocket, left cash on his table to cover his order, and strolled outside to discover what in the world was going on.

The magic was both wild and subtle, humming in the local area without focus but also without visible effect. It had the control of a young child and the power of something otherworldly, and it quite confounded Felix's senses until he'd moved far enough along the block to spot the center of the unconscious maelstrom. Of course, he thought with lazy clarity.

Though he didn't know the woman, she seemed familiar with Finlay, and was part of the storm in a way Felix couldn't quite extract without drawing some complicated sigils and divining it all out. Instead, he leaned against a nearby streetlamp pole and watched, taking the time to slip his hand into a pocket and start sliding on his rings.

Fin couldn't see who Pippa was snapping at, but his magic could, and it offered up a scattered, but very ginger picture. It took a beat, but he soon knew just who was near.

"Hello, Felix," he said, his tone much kinder than hers.

From: [personal profile] harrowgate
That was a clever trick Fin had, of seeing without seeing. Felix could almost catch the shape of the magic he used, and wished he could sink his fingers into it. He had his own sight beyond sight, his own magical senses, but he suspected it wasn't the same.

He straightened up, having only managed to be-ring his right hand, and flashed a smile at the young lady. "Deeply. I'd love to get a closer look, but we'd have to clear the street, and I haven't the necessary permits today. Hello, Finlay. Have the two of you realized what you're doing yet?"

Pippa had always run hot in parallel to Fin's cold. If Pippa was the storm, Fin was the calm before it.

"What do you mean, what's happening?" Fin asked, his eyes becoming clearer as he tried to focus his magic on showing him the world around them. Red lights, stalled cars, angry hipsters at the nearby cafe. It was an abstract painting, boxy and blurred, but it was easy enough to interpret.

"Well, shit," he said softly, turning Pippa towards the traffic lights.

leloupnoir: (i don't want to have to be dangerous)
From: [personal profile] leloupnoir
Akeem was very often lost in his own thoughts as he walked in the streets of London. Today was no different, as he pulled on a cigarette and headed back home from the shop, a bag of groceries in hand. He ought to ring Greg again, he was thinking, since it had been a little while since they'd seen each other. But perhaps he would wait until after his upcoming date with Pippa, since his friend would most likely want an update.

As if the very thought of her had summoned her, Akeem finally grew aware, through the acrid smell of the smoke, of the unique scent that was Pippa's, mixed in with another much like it. It was about the same time the wolf growled inside him, hair standing on end at the feeling of magic spreading round. Quite a few people were honking their horns, and it took Akeem a second to realise that all the lights were stuck on red.

Just a few meters ahead, Pippa seemed to be arguing with - was that Fin? - and he locked eyes with her as he walked up to them with something rather like urgency.

Date: 2016-10-28 03:01 pm (UTC)
finlay_flynn: (pensive or wtvr)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
The scent didn't register at first, but the name clicked right away, and Fin raised a brow not just at the fact that Pippa knew the man, but at the way she said his name. Someone was keen, it seemed.

"Well, that's one way to end an argument, hmm? I'll have to remember that. ...Hello Akeem," he added, turning unseeing eyes on the other man.

Date: 2016-10-28 03:17 pm (UTC)
leloupnoir: (Default)
From: [personal profile] leloupnoir
Seeing them next to each other for the first time, Akeem had to wonder that he had not noticed before how alike they looked. Blood relatives, no doubt.

But there were more urgent things to address. "I'm afraid you've got the traffic lights stalled, one or both of you." While he could tell that magic was being used, vaguely, because of how uneasy it made the wolf, he had no idea who exactly was responsible, but they were the only Fae he could smell. He followed up the statement with a small, warm smile for Pippa, seized by the urge to take her hand. But he resisted it, for now.

Date: 2016-10-29 09:36 pm (UTC)
finlay_flynn: (blue jumper)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
Fin couldn't see what 'this' was, and he frowned at Pippa's sudden change in tone. Loooking thoughtful, he let his milky eyes comb over the world around him. His magic painted with broad strokes, but he could see enough to know all wasn't well. Shambles was a bit of an overstatement, in his opinion, but it was certainly 'a bit not good'.

"If we're to blame, then... It must be some kind of emotional magic," Fin said, thinking it all out as he spoke. "I certainly wasn't deliberately doing magic, and I assume you weren't either. ...So, perhaps the solution is to fight chaos with calm. We relax, our magic retreats, and the clockwork innards of London return to running as smoothly as they ever manage to," he suggested, returning to his usual calm tones.
