+1 flower child



The strangest thing about this newcomer may be that she seems utterly untroubled by her surroundings. Rather than being troubled by her surroundings, the young lady clearly delights in them. However it is she came to be here, she doesn't appear to have a care in the world. But she does have birdseed, which she tosses out across the grass and cobbles from time to time. Pigeons and songbirds have gathered to partake of the feast, and squirrels and chipmunks have begun to come out to sniff around the edges and see what they can snatch. The animal antics coax a ready laugh from her when a standoff between two squirrels is ended by a pigeon who has no fucks to give saunters between them to feast.

Besides a love of animals, the lady has an obvious love of flowers. A crown of cherry blossom and honeysuckle is just the start of the theme: her dress has a bright floral print and her arms and shoulders and bare feet feature botanical tattoos bright and luminous as an oil painting. Beneath the crown, honey-blonde hair is pulled back in a messy bun.

The soft clatter of seeds hitting the ground and the ruffling of feathers as the birds shift around precede her speaking. "I do love this time of year. Don't you? The warm sun and soft breeze and, mm, the taste of potential in the air. Sweet things and bright things and maybe a little romance..." She trails off with a sigh that would be saccharine if it didn't suit her so well. Another handful of seeds is tossed out before fern-green eyes shift from watching the birds to watching the people going by. "What do you look forward to, this time of year?"

((This is a woman of power and mystery. If you'd like your character to get a blessing from the May Queen, let me know and I'll work something up.))

There is something quite entrancing about the woman that has seemed to attracted a young artist, who had been working nearby. With his sketch book ever handy, Hunter takes a moment to capture the joy the woman has with the animals and the birds. The way the sun hits her body.

"For me, I think there is more inspiration in the air."

Hunter is a tall man, who is covered with tattoos and scars. If the woman can sense magic on others ... she will note that there is some faded magic on his body.

"You. I hope you don't mind." Hunter answers honestly.

[personal profile] losthunter 2016-05-02 12:32 am (UTC)(link)
"Of course you can see it." Hunter smiles softly. He will continue to sketch her, as they continue their conversation.

"I usually find inspiration wherever I look. In the beauty of the people around me and how they live their lives."

A scruffy man walking his dog passes by, and has to take firm hold of the leash when the dog notices the abundance of chasable wildlife. "Hey! Lucky! Lucky! Easy, boy, c'mon." He reels the dog in until he's holding the dog's collar. "C'mon, don't spoil the Disney Princess moment."

To the avian attractress in question, he adds, "sorry 'bout my dog. Hi."

[personal profile] aw_hawkguy 2016-05-02 12:35 am (UTC)(link)

"It is." Clint smiles, adding, "he's friendly, really. You wanna meet him?"

While the squirrels and birds are interesting, Lucky also likes people, and here's someone new who's said his name. He gives a genial "werf" and pants amiably.

[personal profile] aw_hawkguy 2016-05-02 01:14 am (UTC)(link)

Lucky strains at his leash to meet this new person as Clint slowly lets it out. "Easy, Lucky, don't jump up."

There's no worry of friendship--Lucky's a very friendly dog if you aren't shooting at his Hawkguy, and starts snuffling and licking the offered hand as soon as he can reach it.

The smell of flowers is intense and curious. They're fresh and uncut. And it's a distinction that he can make only just because it keeps renewing. It really does set him at ease. "I look forward to longer days and shorter nights."
fightlikehell: (rost tinted)

[personal profile] fightlikehell 2016-05-03 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Fluttering? He forgets sometimes it is due to him in part. Matt smiles congenially. Talking about something as pleasant and peaceful as a new season with sincerity is rarely done in his neck of the woods or line of business. Scrutiny about him comes from the glasses and cane. That's just how it goes.

"One pretty girl, yes. And uh business."

The animals are closer to her than they are most people. Of course they don't really like a new comer so he tries to keep his movements easy and unrushed.
fightlikehell: (bright smile)

[personal profile] fightlikehell 2016-05-04 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
He just has an unclear idea of what his face looks like in comparison to what other faces look like. What he knows of people are sounds, shapes and smells. And she? She is welcoming, sweet. There are bits of his memory trying to tie her favorite nuns he knew.

Matt smiles wide. "Yes, lucky." Feed the birds? He gives a shrug. "Sure thing. Uh... you have seeds?"

mybadhabit: (It's a race!)

[personal profile] mybadhabit 2016-05-02 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
This is honestly the most maudlin and saccharine scene Sonic has ever seen, and he is so amused. Nevermind the fact that he's scooped up one of the bickering squirrels, a handful of birdseed, and that he's letting the rodent eat from his hand. He likes small animals. But watching the May Queen stroll through the Nexus is like something out of fairy tales, and it's hard to believe it's actually happening.

"It's nice to be able to get rid of all the winter layers and into some lighter clothes," he says in response to her question. Sure enough, he's wearing a pair of baggy khaki capris that tie off around his calves, running shoes, and a tank top with a large graphic fist on the chest. "Not that it inhibits my ability to fight at all, but wearing so much always makes me feel a little, hmm-" he pauses, tilting his head as he thinks of the right word. "Claustrophobic, I guess."
mybadhabit: (KEEP ON RUNNING)

[personal profile] mybadhabit 2016-05-03 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
Look, he lives in a city that is routinely attacked by Kaiju-like creatures, anything as sweet and innocent is a shock to his system. Frea is clearly a beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure, and it strains his suspension of disbelief more than anything else the Nexus could throw at him. In a world besieged by monsters, who has time or security to be a Free Spirit?

And he really is shocked, absolutely shocked, and slightly appalled to find that she doesn't like heavy layers. He imagines she doesn't care much for tight clothing either. "The whole season is just a little inconvenient, isn't it?"

"Whatever I'm paid to fight, mostly," he replies with a half-shrug. "Lately, I've taken to fighting my rival more often than. I'm taking a break to train right now, though."
mybadhabit: (I bet you didn't know that I was)

I have to finish iconning Inoshishi...

[personal profile] mybadhabit 2016-05-03 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
Well, if a stone-cold killer like himself can hand-feed a squirrel without scaring the thing half to death, then clearly his world has a weird definition of innocence.

He's going to let that squirrel have free reign over him, by the way. As soon as it finishes with the bird seed, it scampers up his arm to his shoulder, then across the back of his neck and over his other shoulder, pausing with its fluffy tail cocked and brushing against his cheek. He gives no fucks if pretty girls think this makes him look adorable, it's the squirrel that's adorable.

Besides, his ego does so LOVE to be stroked.

"It's not so bad in the city, I guess. Roads are better maintained and there're coffee shops with warm drinks and cookies. I do tend to take more jobs in the south, though."

He shrugs at the mention of his rival, reaching up to scritch the squirrel's head with one finger. "He gives me something to aspire to. And I did want to finally face a challenging opponent. Be careful what you wish for, right?"

[personal profile] twelve_not_fourteen 2016-05-04 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
Well, isn't this ... whomever she is, a ray of sunshine. There's something about her that comes off divine in a way that Han was completely unfamiliar with before coming to the Nexus and even now, rarely does he see it to this extent.

If he could just take it in for what it is, maybe he could appreciate the beauty of it. Magic. The supernatural. The force. All of it just rubs him the wrong way and he's never been able to fully appreciate why. It may have something to do with the way it favors some with incredible gifts and spurns others. It could be him.

As it is, the weather is better than it has been and Han is kind of thankful that he's been able to walk around comfortably through the Nexus without a jacket. He comes from a planet of mild temperature and he's a pilot. Extreme weather just annoys him. Everything takes longer and it makes a drop into a planet's atmosphere more difficult to navigate through.

He happens to be hanging around close enough to regard her with a glint of mistrust in his eyes. At her question, he smirks and offers his answer, "nothing."

He is a bit of a grumpy space pirate. He hasn't met the right people and been exposed to the things that ultimately mellow him out a bit. On some level he appreciates that his cynicism hasn't damped her spirit. If it was so easy to throw her off her game, well, you'd have to wonder how happy she really is ...

"Easy lady ..." He says. "Spring is fine. Sometimes it's even nice, but I don't see the point in getting too invested in one season when I'm flying from one star system to another. It ain't spring across the whole galaxy at once."

Actually, what spring does remind him of is the beginning of racing season. Especially a Corellian spring

[personal profile] twelve_not_fourteen 2016-05-04 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
He didn't realize a score was being kept or he might be playing harder. Besides, isn't it nice to be challenged once in a while? Having a mess of people around just agreeing with you would be dull - that's what this spaceman thinks anyway.

"I dunno." He says with a shrug. "I like that I can put on fewer layers now."

Han looks over her thoughtfully for a moment and says finally, "why don't you tell me what's great about spring? Maybe you can make me fall in love with the season."
