The story tonight made me think of people, Human and otherwise that I hadn't thought about in at least a week.
Everynow and then when I was a kid I'd sit up on the roof of the building watching the sunset. Usually when I was wishing Dad were around, or later, pining for the Lovely and Aloof T'ing Hau Kaplan.
I missed the sunset, so instead I decided to do the star gazing thing.

would welcome and interruption.

Gwynn was wandering when she saw the stairs leading up to the outside. She stuck her head out the door and looked around.

Tim was lying on the ledge at the edge of the roof, hands behind his head staring semi-blankly into the night sky.

Gwynn was not sure if he wanted compant or if he was doing the strong silent thing,

"Tim?"

Tim started slightly but fortunatley did so in the direction of the roof, instead of the direction off of it. He sat up, and looked towards the door, his slightly emo pensive face totally used the wrong icon there ah well changing to a smile. "Hey Gwynn. How've you been?"

Gwynn smiled at him.

"Are you alright? Do you wish to be alone?"

"I really don't." he said. "You have really good timing you know? This is the second time you've shown up right in the nick of time."

Gwynn came to sit down next to Tim.

"I am glad to be of service to you, Tim," she said softly. But it wasn't the tone of someone swearing to work for him. It was different.

"Would you like to talk?"

"In a minute." he said, just looking at her. After a moment he said;

"I told a story tonight that reminded me of home. I've never been away from New York this long before. Not by my internal clock anyway."

Gwynn looked at his face and his eyes. This had become one of her favourite past times.

"You miss your home and those you love," she said quietly, "You wonder when you might visit."

Tim nodded, not taking his eyes off her. "Yeah. The craziness here makes up for it a bit, because it's a bit crazy back home too. But every now and then when something crazy happens I keep looking for Yang, or T'ing, Neil, or Teleri to say something innapropriate or something."

Gwynn smiled.

"I understand. There are times that things happen and I keep expecting Froderick to be here to say something that makes no sense in the situation."

Tim smiled back scootching closer. "So what've you been up to, I haven't seen you since the Luau. I missed ya."

"I missed you, too," Gwynn smiled. "I've been going to my workshops and adapting to being back in the dorms again." She tilted her head and looked into his eyes. And you?"

Date: 2006-06-07 03:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] grand-fallguy.livejournal.com
She had lovely eyes. say that you blockhead!

"I've been practicing in the gym a lot." tim said. "Not quite as much fun without you." He paused a moment.

"Anyone ever tell you you have the sweetest smile?"

"I've missed working out with you as well. I should also introduce you to my friend, Peter. His techniques differ a little from mine so we can both teach you, if you would like and he is available?"

When he complimented her smile, she bumped his shoulder slightly and her cheeks reddened.

"Thank you, Tim. It's easy to smile when you're nearby."

He bumped her back and grinned. "Okay now which Peter? English Peter, Alliterative Peter, or Fat Scared you the first day Peter?"

"English Peter," she said quickly, trying not to think of the Peter who had so shocked her.

Tim nodded. "I met him briefly at the Luaua. He seems cool."

Pause for topic change.

"Oh, so I picked up those movies you wanted to see."

"Yes he is."

Gwynn turned to look at him again, her eyes shining.

"The ones about my father? Great."

"You're eyes are pretty too." he said, almost off handedly.

"I got three of the more famouse ones. Plus two horror movies. they have nothing to do with your dad, but since this is summer camp I thought they might be fun."

Gwynn was amazed at how pleased his compliments made her feel inside.

"Horror movies?"

Date: 2006-06-08 01:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] grand-fallguy.livejournal.com
Ah yes, another new concept. That was a lot of fun really.

"Horror movies are like the other things, movies I told you about," he explained. "But they're like ghost stories. They're meant to be scary, like telling stories about monsters around the fire." Which made him wonder what else might have come out of the fire way back when besides the Fae.

Gwynn tilted her head and listened to him.

"So plays about my father... and plays that are special to you? I think we must view these very soon."

"Well I don't know if they're special to me." Tim said. "I just thought they'd be fun. But yes we should view them soon."

waiting on the okay from the mods for something first.

"Whenever you like, then?"

Tim nodded. "I think I'll see if we can get kind of a party going one night in the common room."
