So I guess Christmas happened while I was feeling under the weather... there's a whole pile of gifts in my living room. Uh... thanks? I didn't think I even knew this many people here....

Dom Santiago... actually, I didn't have a pair of these, thanks! Sweet of you to think of it~!

The rest of these I don't know who they're from, so....

Lingerie and candy canes... thanks, Secret Admirer~! Though apparently you admire a lot of people here. Well, sugar's always good and the lingerie's cute~... wonder if I'll ever have an occasion to wear it.

Whoever sent me the whiskey blending kit is my hero. Care to identify yourself and help me taste some of these~?

A dozen brownies, hell yes chocolate is always good... earplugs? Um, what? Thanks?

Coupon for free pole-dancing lessons, another universal gift I see... don't think I really need lessons, thanks~!

A bunch of sweets and tea and bath salts... really nice, thanks, whoever you are~!

This sorta brightly colored, dangly... uh... whatever it is... okay, I'm gonna go ahead and call this one. Ed, I sense your hand in this!

Dead trout wearing lipstick. Ew. Again, see I'm not the only one. Gee thanks, pal, you're so thoughtful.

And finally, THIS IS THE COOLEST GUN I HAVE EVER SEEN. ...What is it, and can you show me how to use it? I'm sort of afraid to touch the damn thing....

So uh... I didn't get anybody anything... feel free to requisition yourself something nice, and thank me later~.

The blaster weapon system was what I got you. I figured you'd like it.

Ha! I figured you were either the gun, or the whiskey. Thanks, Jaina~! ...Seriously, though, you're going to have to explain this thing to me. "Blaster weapon system"? It doesn't look like any gun I'm familiar with. I gather it doesn't shoot bullets?

Date: 2009-01-02 04:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] burningbrand.livejournal.com
You're welcome, Faye. Nah. It shoots blaster bolts, much more precise than bullets.

From: [identity profile] lady-bounty.livejournal.com
Okay, blaster weapon, blaster bolts, makes sense. ...Don't know what a blaster bolt is... guess I'll find out~! So, uh, whaddaya say? You'll show me how to use it properly sometime? I mean, I get the whole "point at target, pull trigger thing", obviously, I just figure... I can't be too careful with extra-solar technology. Heh.

Date: 2009-01-03 06:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] burningbrand.livejournal.com
Sure, I can show you. Whenever you want.

Date: 2009-01-03 07:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lady-bounty.livejournal.com
Thanks~! ...Maybe tomorrow afternoon sometime? We could use the concrete commons behind my building as a shooting range, no one ever seems to be out there.

You're welcome. I didn't know what else to get--and I thought the holiday was nice. Kinda nice to be able to actually give stuff away, too. Been a long time... [pause] Happy New Year--apparently. That true? The timing is a little off, but very close to Sera, I think. Hard to tell.

((Would also like to point out that that last phrase made me laugh so hard... It's just like Tony in the movie! Pepper's birthday... ^_~))

Night vision goggles are perfect, I'm sure I'll have a reason to use them soon enough~. Heh, I dunno, Christmas is kind of hokey as holidays go, but it involves food and booze and free stuff, so it's okay by me~.

Yeah, Happy New Year to you too. It's the Western one, anyway, the Lunar one comes later. I like to celebrate twice~. ...I'm surprised nobody's setting off fireworks, people seem to get so festive in this place. Wonder if that would piss the Keepers off....

((Ha ha, not actually intentional, but totally appropriate~! Faye and Tony pre-Iron Man do have certain things in common... like being completely self-centered. Faye's never been much for giving, she's more about the getting~.))

[hint of laughter/amusement in his voice] Yeah, well. We didn't really have time for any holidays back home--so 'hokey' is better than none. And I think it's a good concept actually. "Good will towards Man." I'd drink to that.

There's two? Oh, I get it. Different cultures have different times set, huh? Yeah, I think the Pesangas had something like that. --You know, it doesn't really surprise me to hear you say that. Any excuse to party, right?

Good question. Wouldn't mind finding out...

Right, you came here from a war, didn't you? A real war, not this stupid.... [trails off into unintelligible grumblings]

"Good will towards Man", huh. [her tone is neutral; there's a slight pause, then she continues with a slightly more teasing tone] ...I'd drink to anything~. Here's to good will towards Man~!

Yeah, exactly. A lot of Asian cultures use a lunar calendar, so each year they celebrate on a different date by the Western calendar. Dunno when it is this year, since I don't know what year it is in this dimension. It's whenever the first new moon is, so uh... in a few weeks? [she laughs] That's right, any excuse to party! What I said before, about food and booze~....

...Damn, now you've got me thinking about requisitioning some~! ...Do I wanna risk the Keepers trying to kill me? [she sounds conflicted and indecisive, but also mischievous and deeply amused]

[voice reply]

Date: 2009-01-02 09:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] loyalcommando.livejournal.com
Yeah... I did.

[chuckling] Yep--will never be surprised by that reaction in the future.

Is Asain (Asia?) a country, island, or continent? Yeah, I don't keep up with that sort of thing. Besides, this isn't even the planet I'm from or one that I've heard of in your case. You're a spacer, or whatever, aren't you?

[he's grinning as he says this] Oh, I dunno. It could be worth it...

Let's just say that TMP-induced rackets or any kind of racket for that matter won't be a problem anymore.

Hey, thanks Ed~! It's, uh, actually kinda cute... in a lopsided, misshapen way.... I wonder if I can attach it to my PDA somehow....

...Something good?
