[Faye's voice sounds smaller than usual, somehow]

...Anyone feel like having a drink?

I'd accept the offer, but somehow, I doubt you'd want my company.

...Heh. We'd probably just spend all night bitching at each other, wouldn't we?

It sounds more interesting than sitting around and waiting.

...It does, actually. Anything would be better than that. With that in mind, I was thinking of telling you to come over anyway, but it looks like Pharaun might be joining me. And I actually kind of enjoy his company, so....

How rude. The least you could do is offer me a bottle of whatever you're having so I can find my own company.

Date: 2009-03-05 09:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, right. Since you asked so nicely and all.

It's the only way I know how to ask~

From: [identity profile]
...Tell you what. A question for you. ...No, wait, two questions. Do you like to gamble? And do you have anything to wager that you think I might want?

I doubt we'll be able to take anything we have home with us, so I have plenty to gamble~ What do you have in mind?

I'll put half a bottle of 30-year-old single malt Scotch against whatever you've got to bet, assuming I want it. And I've got cards, dice, and poker chips, so... poker, blackjack, craps, cho-han, whatever you want to play.

Only half? I think the amount of jewels I'm willing to bet is worth more than half.

Date: 2009-03-06 05:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Well the bottle's only half-full, sorry. ...Jewels, though~? That sounds nice, what kind of jewels are we talking about here~? ...And are they worth 50000 woolongs? Because I think you're underestimating how much that amount of that quality of Scotch whiskey is worth. ...Crap, you probably don't know how much a woolong is, do you. 50000 woolongs is... maybe one or two 18-karat diamonds?

...But if you think I'm being stingy, I'll throw in half a bottle of super-premium vodka. Not like it matters, you're not gonna win~.

((I'm starting a thread with Pharaun that would take place after the proposed game. Shall I assume the game has taken place, and do I have your permission to say that Faye won? ...Because, really, she would. ^_^;; ))

Date: 2009-03-06 09:26 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
We'll see about that~

((If Faye started winning, Rouge would find some way to cheat, I think. Especially since she has a deck of cards of her own laying around. :D;))

Date: 2009-03-07 05:47 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...Then you accept~? What game are we playing, or shall I choose? And, seriously, what kind of jewels are we talking about?

((If Rouge tried to cheat, Faye would notice, and she'd already be cheating herself. You don't play a player. Faye has three decks of cards, all identical, already prepared to her satisfaction. In canon, Faye was a career gambler, and more importantly a career hustler, for several years. She knows every trick in the book for cheating people out of their money in every common gambling game. Her skill at gambling/cheating at gambling earned her a reputation as the reincarnation of Poker Alice (a famous outlaw of the early 1900's noted for her skill and luck at cards) and was such that a casino owner sought her out specifically and blackmailed her into working for him for the express purpose of getting a man to lose all his money. ...I'm not saying she can't be beaten, but she is exceptionally skilled in this area, in the way that Shadow is exceptionally skilled in beating the crap out of people.))

Let's stick to a traditional game of poker~ I've gathered quite the assortment since arriving here. You'll see when we play~

((This is like a refresher course on Bebop. :,D Faye would win and probably would remain uncaught if she cheated unless she messed up. Though, Rouge would initiate a bitch fight if she kept losing and claim Faye was cheating anyway, regardless of evidence.))

...All right then~! I'm in Ast-Okto, come on over~.

((...Sorry. ^_^;; I just didn't want to come off all "My character wins because I say so!" Lol, bitch fight totally expected... Faye would, of course, deny that she was cheating, call Rouge a sore loser, and tell Rouge she was free to leave if she wanted, and Faye would just keep the booze for herself. So then it's just, would Rouge quit the game, or would she stay in it to the end? ...I feel dumb doing all this projecting, but I need to know the results before I can continue with the Pharaun thread.

...Speaking of threads, do we want to do one? On the one hand, a) we've outlined most of what would happen, and b) how the hell would we rp a poker game?; on the other hand, Faye and Rouge snarking at each other is always lulzworthy.))

From: [identity profile]
I'll be right over. ♥

((Haha, she'd probably stay in and demand to look over the cards, be the one to deal, and then cut the deck repeatedly before each hand.

We could do a thread, if you want, and for the poker parts all we have to do is be vague since we already know who's going to win. I'd just need to know how badly Faye wins each hand, so I know how fast Rouge is going to get pissed off/suspicious at her 'bad luck.'))

From: [identity profile]
((Lol, Faye would be perfectly happy to let her do all that, of course~. Okay, cool, then I'll continue the Pharaun thread with that in mind.

Sure, thread sounds fun. You wanna start it, or should I? And sure, I can do that... Faye would be subtle, though, she'd let Rouge win a lot of hands.))

Can't say I'd object. I'm beginning to think I'd have preferred to be surprised - anticipation is exhausting.

Date: 2009-03-05 04:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, I've never liked waiting. And... I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep tonight.

Well, I wouldn't mind your company. I've got a pretty good selection we could share. ...I'm not thinking about getting wasted, mind, just... something to calm the nerves, and pass the time.

Anyway, you know where I am.

((Would you like to do another thread, then? And, you may have noticed, "where I am" is Ast-Okto now. Ast-Dyo is inhabited by Ton Phanan and one or two roommates, apparently. So we can just pretend Ast-Dyo was a munly typo on my part in that last thread. >>;; ))

I know the feeling. At least I'm fairly certain I do, since I don't sleep... oh, to the Abyss with it.

Of course.

((OOC: Sure, if you're up for it! Strikes illegible, incidentally.))

I might suggest that you wait a few hours, until later in the evening... I'm trying to get Rouge to agree to let me kick her ass in a game of cards or dice or something. Unless you want to watch her lose in a humiliating manner, in which case come by anytime~! I'd find it entertaining, at any rate~.

((Yeah, totally! Would you like to post, or shall I? I'm cool either way, but I'm at the end of my work-break, so I won't be able to do anything for a couple hours.))

Date: 2009-03-06 12:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Not knowing her nearly so well, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to enjoy it properly. I'll be by later, then~

((OOC: I can post it if you don't mind waiting a little while *just got back from school and is about to go have dinner*))

Date: 2009-03-06 05:46 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
All right, then. Later~!

((Thanks for posting it, and I'll go reply now, sorry it took me so long. Between buying groceries for a sick roommate, pre-Watchmen spazzflailing, and going to work, I didn't quite get around to it yesterday.))

Heh. Tequila or something new?

I'm going to have to plead "minor" here, but I also have a lot going on at the moment, so thanks anyway.

Date: 2009-03-05 04:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Ha. Ha ha. You'd just try to take it away from me again, wouldn't you? Don't think just because I was drunk I don't remember that. ...I haven't decided yet. I've also got vodka, and a lot of Scotch. ...Don't worry. I'm not planning on getting wasted.

...Yeah, I've gathered you and some others are pretty busy with... something. What are you working on? ...Some kind of weapon?

Date: 2009-03-05 05:29 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Aw gee, Faye. You're holding that against me? Let me have my moment in the sun. It's not often I get to be the responsible one.

Uh, yeah. That's right. We're hoping it'll use the Entropi's own energy against them. Don't ask me how. I just make the parts.

Date: 2009-03-06 05:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Really? So you don't usually go around depriving people of their booze?

...Hmm. Use their own energy against them. That would be nice. ...Well, I hope it works, obviously. Good luck.

Date: 2009-03-06 07:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Nah. Yours was a special case. I usually spend my time chasing down things a little less tangible than alcohol.

Hey, thanks. We'll find out soon enough, anyway... Good luck to you too.

Well gee golly, how nice to know I'm special.
