Initially, this was intended as a playground post locked to some newcomer players, but after typing up these threads, I decided what the hey, I'll make them public and open to whoever. For the most part. Why not.

[Ah, now Claire feels bad. 8(]

Oh--uh, no, sorry. That was a joke.

A bad one.

[She's from Resident Evil, she can't help it. Bad jokes come naturally.]

I do not understand. Suggesting that you have found a way out when you have not is...funny?

[...Like I said, noooot a good day for jokes.]

Well, I... guess it was more... subtle humor. Being stuck here's pretty much a given, so acting like I might not be here was kind of...

...

Yeah, it was a bad joke. [At least it beats "We sure got to the ROOT of that problem!" after killing a giant plant. :T]

Yes, it was.

[And it's pretty clear from her still-slightly-frowning expression that she still doesn't understand, really, but...she also doesn't really care all that much and she's still feeling the need to see if you can find Magneto SO.]

Magneto--Erik Lensherr--where was your encounter?

[Ouch.]

I'm... not really sure where. It was a few months ago, back when some of us were thrown together for lunch. Valentine's Day. It was some kind of restaurant, but I haven't seen the place since.

[She's noticed the recognition in Laura's reactions, so this is a pretty "duh" question, but--] You know him?

He was formerly an enemy, but is now considered to be one of us. He is very powerful.

[That's...something of a warning, really.]

[Claire figures that last bit wasn't included just for fun, but all the same, she'd never have guessed him to be threatening from appearances alone.

Again, story of her life.

She seems to consider that for a moment.]
He seemed polite enough, but I'll keep that in mind. I'll let you know if I see him again.

Thank you.

[Aaaand out comes the phone she was given not so long ago. Which has, like, three numbers in it. Maybe four.]

You will require my number to make such a notification quickly. And also to let me know when we will be...playing again.

[Those words sound so strange, but the idea that she really will be called, that they really will play together again, is even more strange.]

/tries to quick!tag while LJ is up again 'B|

[And out comes Claire's phone, in that way that says she's used to whipping it out at a moment's notice. Read: she's a modern-day American]

Oh, sure. [brb, setting up a section in her Contacts for you] I usually have mine around, so I can probably be reached whenever.

[--And done. Expectant look says shoot.]

ALMOST SUNSET TIEMZ HERE METHINKS

[Aaaaand Laura recites her number, then waits expectantly for Claire to do the same, or else call her. Which sort of person is she, she wonders...]

IN RESIDENT EVIL, IT IS NOT OVER UNTIL THE SUN *RISES* K

Got it. [She punches it in easily enough, and then gives her own number.] I'll be in touch.

LOL O RLY? HAVE IT YOUR WAY THEN X'D

[Laura is probably not quite as fast at entering Claire's number, but she isn't slow either, so she's done before long.

Laura is not sure what she's supposed to say here. She's already said thank you, and is not certain whether goodbye is appropriate just yet, since Claire isn't moving away. So as she stows her cellphone, she simply says]


...Okay.

[Claire doesn't pick up on that uncertainty, so it's another nod with a smile.] Thanks for the company. I'll see you around.

[She overturns the goal net and tosses the last of the gathered soccer balls into it, and then begins to drag it back towards the supply closet.]

...

[It seems...wrong somehow to leave Claire to do all the cleaning up, even if she was the one who set it all up in the first place, though Laura doesn't know for certain whether or not she was. Either way, Laura used the equipment, too...so it only seems fair that she help with putting it away. That is what..."friends"...do, supposedly.

SO~ X is just gonna grab the other goalpost and do just that.

...AND TOGETHER THEY DRAG IT AWAY INTO THE SUNSETRISE...ALSO KNOWN AS THE SUPPLY CLOSET.]
