Video 9 ♔ Guys Are Dolls

 Well, now that we've been granted permission [Could you be more of a prat, Charles? Good riddance.] to be very angry indeed, could someone take this... thing off of me. [He squeezes the doll in distaste.] It's really awful. 

No offense intended, Marquis. [He sort of haphazardly tosses it to one side.] Feel free to pick it up, if you like. I certainly don't want it. [Not that he can take his eyes off it.]

[When the Marquis replies several minutes later, he looks winded and is clutching his side with an arm. His ribs felt tight for just a moment, which of course agitated an old injury. He doesn't think to connect the two.]

How quaint. I shall have to compliment the craftsmen. [He tries to smile, just winces] ...I'm sure I'll be along eventually, dearheart, but I'm feeling a little under the weather.

Right as rain, really.

My apologies. I will speak to you soon. [He needs to go lie down.]

[And as promised, he does appear, with Renate leashed, though it's about an hour later. He looks considerably better than he did over the network, at the very least, and he politely knocks at Francis' door.]

You're in a frightful mood, mon ami. [He reaches out to take it, because he'd certainly like a good look, see if it's like the one he's keeping in his room.]

Likely safe to say it's part of the flood then, oui?

[He gasps, staring at the place it used to be.]

...What do you suppose that means?

A shame. I would have liked to take a better look at it. I received one very similar, you see.

I'm thinking so. Striking resemblance, I'd say. What of this one? You had a chance to look at it.

[He blinks at that.] Anger and violence?

[Of course the flood but that still leaves him a little perplexed; he never thought it would be abnormal to realize people reacted the same as you.]

But over a doll, of all things?

I must seem like I'm teasing you.

[And he does crack a little smile.]

Merely attempting to better understand. Is there anything specific about that "very visage"?

I still hoped you might, and I tend to assume you'll hold back to avoid sounding strange.

[...He may have lived past his death and overcome several faults but he'll never not maintain his fairly petty assumptions about the English.]

I know the only thoughts I have toward the one in my cabin are irrational ones.

In what way have I implied that I enjoy feeling angry?
impure_tale: (expectant)

[Spam]

[personal profile] impure_tale 2014-04-23 04:34 pm (UTC)(link)
You implied I was lucky, as opposed to you, who does not particularly enjoy being angry.
impure_tale: (tell me more)

Lie, not necessarily. Omit out of habit, perhaps very much as I have done? Perhaps.

[Side-eye to end all side-eyes.]

And you did imply that.
impure_tale: (I suppose)

Then I failed to communicate my meaning. To say my feelings were irrational does not mean I did not experience anger, as "irrational" is not an emotion. I just recognized that the impressions and emotions I felt over a doll I'd never seen before could not be rational.
impure_tale: (most dreadful)

[His expression drops to one a little more impassive.]

...I'm merely attempting to make sense of this flood. It will determine what I ought to do with the doll currently in my possession. I'll not trouble you further.

Why not simply throw it away if you don't like it?

Always so polite.

[That would be a compliment.]

I do hope your efforts are appropriately appreciated.

[Because she appreciates them.]
