twenty-one swords line up with each other

[ Click, and the rustling of leaves: the communicator opens its video on booted feet and a long red coat. Archer is holding it in one hand at his side as he walks through a park, heedlessly kicking up dry leaves around him. ]

It troubles me to say something so mundane, but it's been over a year now since I arrived in this stupid heroes' City. Well, I won't bore any of you with the mundane details of how much blood I've needed to wash out of my clothes since then or something like that. I'll only say this: as counterintuitive as it seems, this place isn't totally worthless.

[ His grip on the network device tightens, his thumb briefly obscuring the input and slightly muffling his next words-- ]

There are good people in it.

[ Then he's lifting it so that the camera focuses on his face at last. ]

Listen. I intend to protect people like that, as stupid and useless as it might be in the long run.

[ He looks away from the camera for a moment, and when he glances back, he's all business. ]

Who has skill in communicating with beings of darkness beyond human ken? There might be some interdimensional travel involved as well, but we're all old hat at that.

Naturally, I have fought such existences. But this one might be an ally, not an enemy.

[She answers with a foolish smile, letting her hand drop.]

Well... it might be better to call it "experience," instead of "skill."

Um.

I don't know if I'd put it that way exactly...

[Not actually sarcastic at all.]

Protecting people is never stupid and useless. Nice to see you've figured that out.

'Course not, you're one of those hard-heads who has to figure things out their own way without any help. Yeah, yeah, I've got your number, Archer.

[personal profile] wild_roar 2013-11-16 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, yeah. You're a big shot, all right.

Now what's this about looking for beings of darkness?

You'll always have me at any rate so you better get used to it.

This may be your lucky day. Or unlucky. It is all very subjective when it comes to beings of darkness.

How can I help you?

[personal profile] nitidus 2013-11-20 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Somewhat. I have an intimate knowledge and history, so to speak.

Beings of darkness aren't likely to talk if already angered. Your best bet will be trying to appease it, first.

My body was host to many of them, for a short time.

Some prefer ritual sacrifice.

[ He can't talk to darkness, but Archer is thinking along the same lines he has been lately. ]

I wonder if there's a way to get the two sisters to talk.

The question is how can we approach Lachesis without her porting us elsewhere or doing something to imPorts at large?

[ Don't incur her wrath, Archer. ]

It's our best shot, I suppose.

We need to find a way to Atropos. I might be able to use my Chain's power, but I need an open pathway to take others through.
