When Hunter made his first appearance in the Nexus, it was in The Parklands. And today, he is sitting in the same spot near the water. He has a canvas set up, and is working on a large piece depicting a mother pushing a child on a swing set. There is also a large collection of books near him. Obviously he had been studying over something of importance.

He gets to the point where the canvas is nearly complete, when he stops and places his brushes to the side. After studying the canvas for a moment, Hunter reaches out and touches the canvas, right in the lower left corner.

He closes his eyes and concentrates, and after a moment, the picture on the canvas comes to life. There is also a soft glow on his arm, where a few tiny roses bloom to life on the rose bush.

But the moment doesn't last long. It ends very quickly. And Hunter sighs a little frustrated. "What am I doing wrong?"

Proper reconnaissance of a new location has been drilled into every Starfleet officer, particularly those in the command track, so James T. Kirk has been using any spare time he has to check out the place. The Nexus is huge, and there doesn't seem to be a limit to how far it stretches. Yet despite only having been here twice before now, he's still seen some familiar faces. Including the tattooed young man working on a painting.

A painting that moves, if only briefly.

Huh.

He stands behind Hunter for a moment, watching him at work. And while he doesn't have a useful answer to the question, it's as good a time as any to announce his presence. "Beats the heck out of me."

"Hey, Hunter," Jim says, smiling back. He's out of uniform today, and takes a seat next to the other man. "Trying something new?" he asks, nodding towards the painting.

"Reminds me of something from an old book series I read once, a long time ago. They had moving paintings too, but I don't think they said how they made them either."
boldygoing: (Listening to you)

"More what?" Jim asks, tilting his head curiously. Hunter looks fairly invested in this project, so it must be something important to him.

"You'll figure it out. You're a clever guy." Jim may not have anything he can do to help, but he's always been a people person, and a year of captaincy has only reinforced his desire to encourage others.

Jim watches him clean up, and looks consideringly at the painting. "Looking for answers means there's usually a question. About that... lingering magic you mentioned?"

"Is that a hunch?" Jim won't judge him if it is. He's relied on his own instincts for years, and it has often had little to do with logic or evidence.

This is a familiar scene. Hunter and his paintings. One of her favorite sights.

The magic is new. So is the frustration. Verity gives him a moment before moving up beside him and wrapping her arms around him. It seems like the best answer she can give him, since she has none other. She's no teacher of the mystic arts. Pretty good at this hugging thing, though.

"I think it was lovely," she murmurs.
brave_heart_verity: (cautiously optimistic)

[personal profile] brave_heart_verity 2017-05-26 05:35 am (UTC)(link)
She's had lots of practice with willing and experienced partners. He gets an extra bit of squeezing before she releases him enough to turn and look at the canvas again.

"Mm, hey handsome. What's got you bothered? Maybe talking it out will help you see where it went other than intended."
brave_heart_verity: (doubt it but I love ya)

[personal profile] brave_heart_verity 2017-05-27 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
"And you assume that because you can't, you're doing something wrong?" Her tone suggests that she doesn't believe the one necessarily follows the other. But he's him, she's her, and she's not inclined to see him as doing wrong very often. (Besides some of his sartorial choices, that is.)
brave_heart_verity: (thinking about it)

[personal profile] brave_heart_verity 2017-05-29 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
The ways she moves to support him are subtle; a turn of a foot, and shifting of weight. She's good for leaning on, soft enough but solid. Her hands find their way to his shoulders so she can rub them. "Mmm, that's a good thought," she agrees.

"So, what variables have you tried?"
brave_heart_verity: (thinking about it)

[personal profile] brave_heart_verity 2017-06-03 05:34 am (UTC)(link)
Verity hums softly, thinking about that. Trying to articulate magic theory has never been one of her strong suits. (And most of the magic in her life has happened without her say-so.)

"Are the tattoos the source of the power, or a tool to harness the power?"

[personal profile] brave_heart_verity 2017-06-06 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
"Maybe it's that you're not strong enough yet to make things permanent? The more you try to change reality, the harder it pushes back. It might just be that you need to work on those muscles for a while."

Aww
