CWDT 2013

He's been shooting, he's been running; it's been a day. He even got the chance to get out and walk his trapline, resulting in a fair few demon rabbit pelts he'll be tanning just as soon as possible. Bar's been giving him more credit lately for the skins he's turned in, so he figures he's been getting pretty good at those. It's all good, really.

'Course, that doesn't mean he hasn't got other responsibilities, too, especially now. And those are kind of sitting on his thoughts no matter where he goes or what he does, at home or in the Bar or outside or anywhere else.

There's probably somebody he ought to talk to about that.

Well, if he's still outside, he might find somebody near the foot of the mountains.

Specifically, near one of the little streams that runs down into the lake, peering down into the water with claws poised to spear anything tasty-looking that might swim by.
nepetaleijon: (happy cat)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-30 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
Indeed she does.

"Hi Shepurrd!" Nepeta waves.
nepetaleijon: (o hai)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-30 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay! I can't believe it's already getting cold again," she says, waving a hand. "I don't know if I'll efur get used to these short Earth years."
nepetaleijon: (o hai)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-30 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
"Defurnitely. Of course, then it'll only be like thr33 months befur the nights start getting shorter again."

She flops back on the bank, abandoning the stream for the moment. "How're you doing?"
nepetaleijon: (hmmm)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-30 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
She pauses, and frowns. "You mean our Kanaya, or the grub Kanaya?"
nepetaleijon: (wat)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
"... how could they be the same purrson?"
nepetaleijon: (oooh)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh." She looks a little taken aback. "Is she still here? Is she okay? Did she say anything about how everynyan is back home?"
nepetaleijon: (sneak sneak sneak)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
"A picture? Can I s33?"

She bounces closer, looking hopeful.

(And trying not to feel hurt that Kanaya's gone back that quickly, without so much as waiting to say hello.)
nepetaleijon: (sneak sneak sneak)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
Nepeta studies it.

Slightly small-voiced: "That's so sw33t."
nepetaleijon: (mrowf!)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
She looks up at him, a little defiantly.

"What do you mean, not suppurrsed to be here?"
nepetaleijon: (i has a sad)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-10-31 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
"So how come she couldn't stay? Once that was ofur and she was back to her regular age again?"
nepetaleijon: (hmmm)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-01 02:36 am (UTC)(link)
Nepeta still looks a little mutinous, but nods at the mention of Rose. If she and Kanaya are going to be matesprits, then ... well ...

"I guess getting back was impurrtant." She sighs. "Meowbe she'll get to come back here sometime soon."
nepetaleijon: (sneak sneak sneak)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-01 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
"..."

She looks up at him warily. "What?"
nepetaleijon: (wat)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-01 03:05 am (UTC)(link)



Nepeta blinks.

"But she had a lusus."
nepetaleijon: (wat)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-01 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
"But you don't even have the same blood color, how does that work?"

She isn't so much objecting as just bewildered.
nepetaleijon: (hmmm)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-01 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
"...meowbe. Or ... you were taking care of her, meowbe she just sort of ... developed a custodial affurction?"
nepetaleijon: (wat)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
Nepeta blinks again.

"That's so weird," she says furvently fervently.
nepetaleijon: (hmmm)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
"That might be weird for Kanaya too. I don't know if her lusus could talk. Mine nefur could, until she was a sprite during the Sgrub game."
nepetaleijon: (i has a sad)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
She nods. "Pounce de Leon."

A sigh. "I miss her."
nepetaleijon: (i has a sad)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 03:35 am (UTC)(link)




Nepeta leans against him.
nepetaleijon: (i has a sad)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
Barely above a whisper: "I wish you could be my purrtend dad too."
nepetaleijon: (pounce!)

[personal profile] nepetaleijon 2013-11-03 04:13 am (UTC)(link)
... Yeah, Shephard's getting hugged within an inch of his life right about now.
