[Mel leads Mail to the War Room, and looks over at him as they come in, trying not to make it obvious that she's studying him for a sudden change, or a sign, or something. She's not even sure what it would be like if it did heal him. From what she's heard, she's not confident it'll do anything at all, but it is worth a try.]

Pretty fuckin' cool, huh?

...holy shit, they have goombas here. [Initial reaction! Grins in amusement.] Very cool, like arcade mode on Time Splitters 2. [Knows she probably has no clue what he's talking about, but is still smiling stupidly.] You'll have to teach me, though. The only experience I have is in a pixelated fictional world.

Those mushroom things? *She doesn't know, at all, but she smiles back, still studying him.* Oh, I can teach you, no problem.

*She's drawn irresistibly to the guns, and looks them over with lust in her eyes.* Ohh, sweet fuck, is that a .50 revolver I see before me?

Those're them. [Chuckles, oblivious to the scrutiny.] Free lessons?

Uh... a what? [Ignorant!]

They're not going to attack, are they? *They seem a little... cute, but you never know here!* Sure. I was planning to teach you someday anyway.

*She picks it up and gazes at it, then flips the cylinder open to show him how large the bullets are.* .50-caliber revolver. Mine's decently big at .357, but this is huge. You shoot something with this, there's not much left.

I don't think so. Not unless they magically grow arms and can pull a trigger.

So.. ah- [Finds a 9x19mm bullet, holding it for emphasis.] Let me get this straight, this [gestures to the 9x19mm] kills you. That [nods towards the .50] kills you and everyone in the room. Right?

'kay. *Is keeping an eye on them just in case.*

*laughs* Pretty much. With this, it's red mist time. You know I have to fire it, right? *looks for nonexistent ear protection for him*

Date: 2008-07-13 06:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
Of course. It's just sitting there and begging to be fired, right?

[Looks around, also for earplugs or something, when he spots something in the corner.] ...is that a portal gun?

It's saying "Mellll, you know you want to!" *Grins, steps a safe distance away, and fires at a target on the far wall.* Woo, I think the kick blew my hair back a little! I can still hear. Must be an effect of the room. *Looks over at him with great Casualness* How do you feel, by the way?

Ooh, that would be damn handy.

[Watches her, laughing a little, plugging his ears just in case.] Remind me to keep you away from the nuclear warheads. [Blinks a bit at the question, then gets a little ':/' (mentally) when he assumes the question is about his health, but hides it quickly with a smile.] I feel great. You?

[Moves to investigate, picking it up and firing a blue portal on the far wall.] ...holy shit it is. [Fires an orange underneath himself, propelling out the blue and stumbling a bit to regain balance.]

I prefer the more hands-on weapons anyway. *Tips her head at him, trying to keep her expression neutral.* Like, really great?

*Goes over to him instinctively, though he's steady by the time she gets there.* Awesome. Bet it won't let us take it out, though, or everyone would have one.

...like knives? [Another curious blink.] I always feel great when I'm with you, Mel.

D'aww. I'll enjoy it while I can. [Moves to pick up a random crate, using the gun to toss it aside.]

Date: 2008-07-13 07:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
Knives are good! *Looks for some to throw, and is now trying to keep disappointment out of her voice, though she smiles.* 'kay. You're so sweet.

It moves things too? I thought it just made the portals.

[Notices the disappointment, frowning. He puts the gun down, and moves to her, pulling her into a hug.] What's wrong, Mel?

*She puts her arms around him and rests her forehead on his shoulder.* It's OK, it's- I shouldn't have been so obvious.

[He holds her against him, kissing her hair and stroking her back soothingly.] Mel? What's wrong?

*She sighs.* I know you don't like to think about it... But, this room. I heard it. Brought people back to life, and I... I was hoping it could heal too.

Date: 2008-07-13 08:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
[He exhales softly against her hair, then turns her chin to look her in the eyes before kissing her passionately.] We'll find a solution, Mel.

From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
*She kisses back, relieved, and maybe it's OK, after all, to let him see that she feels a bit lost.* It'd be better. If we worked together. I've been looking all over, I have all these maps and notes and- And ideas, and shit, and. I was... afraid of upsetting you.

Date: 2008-07-13 08:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
[He continues to plant small kisses to her cheeks and forehead, eventually going back to her lips as well.] I'll help you, Mel. I love you.

*She holds him tighter and strokes his hair.* I love you so, so much. *She leans back in for another soft kiss.* I would do anything to make you get better.

From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
[He moves his head when she strokes his hair, tilting to kiss her fingers. When she leans in, he returns the kiss lovingly, nipping at her lower lip playfully in hopes of lightening the mood.] I would do anything if it meant we could be together.

*It works, and she kisses the tip of his nose and smiles.* We will be. I promised, remember?

Do you want to hear about some of the rooms I've found so far?

Date: 2008-07-13 08:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
So did I.

Group study session? Sure.

*She smiles again, and kisses his lips one last time before stepping away so she can dig through her pockets for her maps and notes.*

I wonder, if we turned you into a kid, would you be better when you grew up? Let's see... ICEE room, no; flying room, no; pastry kitchen, fuck no. There's a room that looks empty, but maybe? Oh. I wasn't sure what this one did. It had little stones with animals on them. I picked the first one up, but nothing seemed to happen.

Date: 2008-07-13 09:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] downtothefilter.livejournal.com
[When she steps away, he quickly gives a peck to her temple, moving to listen intently while looking at her notes over her shoulders]

There's an ICEE room here? [Knows it's not what they were looking for, but is intrigued!] Stones with animals? I doubt the mansion would put something like that there without it having some sort of effect.
