ic contact (lost carnival)

FREQUENCY: 232.67834
DESCRIPTION: Strange occasionally forgets his frequency exists. Expect responses to be erratic, occasionally delayed, and just a bit all over the place.

LOCATION: Mailbox on Door
DESCRIPTION: Strange will actually check the mailbox! Really, that's the better way to get in contact with him than the channel, he's too scatterbrained for that. Just ignore the fact that the mailbox's door doesn't close properly and it's already got a few scorch marks.

[Checking in the mailbox will reveal a very small package, wrapped up carefully. Opening it reveals a single cufflink, and under it a letter written in what is actually pretty tidy writing.]

Use this in case of emergencies. All you have to do is touch it and think of me really hard. It'll take you straight to the inside of my trailer, hopefully away from anything that's causing us trouble. It only works on the grounds of the carnival, so get very good at running back here and always keep in mind how to get back.

- Joker

[Look, he signed his name and everything, no playing card- HA HA NAH there is absolutely a joker playing card beneath the note. What the fuck, Joker]

Strange, pick up the damn radio.

I've got good news for you. Looks like we might get a proper training yard soon.

[ Good news for Lambert, probably bad news for Strange. Now he has a proper space to make him run around (warmups are necessary if you don't want to pull a fucking muscle, Strange) before they get to their semi-regular knife lessons. ]
whattaprick: (these wooounds they will not heeeal)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-14 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[ You can all but hear him grinning like a shark. ]

It'll be great. Lots of equipment to really get you in shape.
whattaprick: (snerk)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-14 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't know yet. Engineering's working on it. It's got lasers.

[ Does Lambert know what a laser even is? Fuck no, but it sounds cool. ]

Anyway, since I want you to actually use it, I thought I'd ask: what kind of equipment would you need to practice magic with? Elements for you to draw from, I figured, but what else?
whattaprick: (resting bitch face)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-14 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Your magic is all pretty large-scale. Couldn't hurt to figure out if you can... [ What's a delicate way to put this. Oh, fuck it. ] ...swing your dick around a little less. You know, magically. On the job isn't really the time for experiments.
whattaprick: (like so whatever)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-15 06:15 pm (UTC)(link)
That's what I said, isn't it? [ He's grinning, even so. ]

So what, your magic's always got to be big and flashy because ... ?
whattaprick: (eeeyyy lmao)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-15 06:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Funny, I would've said 'compensating for something.'

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-15 06:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Ugh, spoken like a true romantic.

[ He could point out love and marriage don't always come hand in hand, but he reckons Strange damn well knows that already. ]
whattaprick: (crap did i break a nail)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-16 02:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Is it going to be good poetry?
whattaprick: (snerk)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-16 02:31 pm (UTC)(link)
You know I have no idea who that is, right?
whattaprick: (muffled rap music in the distance)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-17 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
Guess you'll have to explain it someday.
whattaprick: (Default)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-17 06:27 pm (UTC)(link)
That bad, huh? Now I'm curious.

[ Just watch, he ends up liking it, just because that's Strange's luck. ]
whattaprick: (did you even notice?)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-17 09:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Why not? I'm all ears.
whattaprick: (drown your sorrows)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-05-18 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
[ And he'd started off so well, too. ]

Did you just fall asleep in the middle of that poem when you heard it or what?

Sorry about Lauren... He doesn't know how to talk to people. He just worries about me cause of my magic messing things up a lot.

whattaprick: (i activate my trap card)

phonecall -- strange's office

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-06-29 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
[ Sometime after the 7th, Strange's office is going to get a phone call. Does he pick up? ]
whattaprick: (back the fuck up)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-06-29 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
Hey. It's me.
whattaprick: (meh)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-06-29 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
[ Where Strange sounds perky, Lambert just sounds kind of tired and irritable, but it's nothing to do with him in particular in this case. ]

Yeah, I had a couple of questions for you. [ A beat. It feels stupid to be paranoid now, of all times, but... ] Can we talk here, or should I come by?
whattaprick: (SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-06-30 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ Dammit, that was the answer he wasn't hoping to hear. ]

I'm a little tied up at work. [ A beat. ] My other job -- the cat cafe downtown. You ever been?
whattaprick: (piss off)

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-07-02 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I will. If you can drop by, I can talk to you on my break.

[ And figure some of the nonsense going on out, if he's lucky. ]

It's called Toe Beans.

[ Look, he didn't make up the name. ]
