Rebuild All Your Ruins

The door Shephard opens is one he's been practicing with for some time. There's an equipment shed not far from where the Borealis is docked, and its door doesn't have a very good line of sight on anything except a clump of trees draped in snow. It's practically ideal for avoiding inconvenient questions, if you don't mind the way the ground gets muddy pretty much the instant you come off the topmost step.

"Welcome to West Virginia," Shephard says to Bumi as he holds the door a little wider. "We ain't far from the ship, but I reckoned this'd be a better spot to start."

Bumi peers out the door, but doesn't yet cross the threshold.
"This is the better spot?" he asks, raising a bushy eyebrow.

He rolls his shoulders, then pats down the various pockets and compartments in his new kit. Everything is where it should be, ready for when he needs it.

There's running away from home to fight, and then there's running away from your world to fight. He laughs when he thinks that all of the crazy stunts he's done in his life are about to be paled in comparison.

"Spirits protect us..."

He makes his way through the door. Something under his boot squishes.

"Well if that ain't a good omen, then I don't know what is."

Bumi's mid-way through explaining how sneaking past guards would be mere child's play due to his acute intellect and cat-like reflexes when the Borealis comes into view...and he's forced to stop dead in his tracks.

"Hel-lo gorgeous. Measurements never do a lady justice."

He snerks.

"Find me a sailor that don't. Speaking of that," he turns towards Shep. "Where'm I in this rank and file? What's my cover?"
abitofawildman: (Eyebrow Raise)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-06 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
"Huh," is all he really has to say about that, then he starts moving towards the ship.

"Trolls are the grey-skinned fellas with the orange horns, yes?"
abitofawildman: (Backpedal)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-07 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
"It wasn't twenty years, more like that many weeks, but...those were tough times. Could have done without the cannibals."

A shiver runs down his spine at the memory, that is until he shakes it away.

"Adopted 'em, eh? I can only imagine based on the look my own mother gave when I brought my first ducklings home on leave. 'Course,...they weren't grey with horns."
abitofawildman: (Smug)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-11 06:13 pm (UTC)(link)
There's a chuckle as Bumi reminisces over the various creatures and animals he'd tried to keep as pets over the years.

"Eh, accents I can handle. Is their writing different too? Because...that could make things interesting."
abitofawildman: (Judging)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-11 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
"Is Spanish any more or less difficult than Healer Seuss?"

Bumi's been trying to make sense of Fox in Socks.
It's been slow going.

The door to Bumi's quarters may be closed, but the sound of the flute he's playing can be heard halfway down the hallway. It's a haunting melody, of love lost and hope failing. Something that sounds as it it should really be played on a sitar, rather than the jaunty flute it's coming out of.

Shephard said Pi liked music...
abitofawildman: (Default)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-23 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
The music stops just long enough for Bumi to yell, "Come," to the door.

Don't worry, Shep. He's wearing pants. In fact, he's dressed as if ready to go.
abitofawildman: (Talking)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-24 06:52 pm (UTC)(link)
The music stops again as Bumi sits up from where he's lounging on the bed, back propped up against the nearest wall.

"Oh? Is it that time already?" Bumi stows the pipe into one of the inside pockets of his jacket even as he's rolling to his feet. "I wouldn't miss this for the world. It's not every day a guy gets to travel this way.
...
Okay, it's not every day this guy does."

That little declaration at the end perks his attention.

"Where do you keep your harpoons again?"
abitofawildman: (Smug)

[personal profile] abitofawildman 2014-02-24 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
"It's almost like you know me," he says clapping a strong hand on Shep's shoulder. "Lead on, Sargent. Show me some more of this scientific magic I've heard so much about."
