What's a Hero Without A Mask?

WHO: Francis Urquhart and Party Goers!
WHERE: Native Hotel
WHEN: Halloween Night
WHAT: Masquerade
WARNINGS: None yet.

Working with Papyrus and the hotel staff, Francis knows how to put together a party. He chose a theme of Machiavelli, with rich furnishings and dramatic flowing fabrics. Papyrus added his own touches on top of it, adding that needed spooky air. 

The man himself is in a black suit with this mask, greeting everyone that comes in at the door. Security is checking anyone who comes in for weapons and Francis, if he has doubts about the intentions of the new guest, gives them special attention: using his hypnotism. He'll make sure that everyone is here to behave themselves and enjoy the evening.

[Qubit's actually not running security for once! Is a miracle. Instead, he's here in a variant of his usual outfit - that is to say, it's still a green suit, but it's considerably fancier than the one he's normally spotted in. It's got an unambiguous tailcoat and a little bit of Gothic flair, and the mask is something fairly simple, but matching. Of course, his hair is still as flippy as always, so there is no mistaking him for anyone else anyway.

He'll mostly be mingling and making small talk with folks, so feel free to bug him (or be bugged by him)!]

[ Hey there tall haired person whose name the Doctor still doesn't know (for purposes of them probably yelling at each other in this thread, let's be real). With a grin, the Doctor saunters over towards Qubit. He's not wearing a mask but his costume is costumey enough (just with a little bit too much red and also sans beard). ]

Sensors! [ said with a grin. ] Working security again?

[Dude you are kind of missing the point of a masquerade... But yeah he forgot to get this guy's name after their previous encounter, so. Qubit returns the grin.]

I'm not, actually! For once. [A gesture at his face-] Where's your mask?
helpline: (for fuck's sake)

[personal profile] helpline 2015-11-02 10:33 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Missing the point of things is the Doctor's speciality. As for his question, he shrugs. ] I forgot. Really, I was working on getting the costume together that picking up a mask slipped my mind.

Speaking of which, what are you supposed to be? I'm torn between "death metal exorcist" and "Renaissance Hell's Angel."

A cardinal! According to d'Artagnan, Cardinal Richelieu wore less red, more leather.

Richelieu? [who's that]

Well, I've read de Broglie.

[That's a no.]

Pick up your Dumas. The one with him specifically probably won't be here [ because the Doctor's figured out the 'once a character comes in game their canon vanishes' sort of deal ] but at least there's Count of Monte Christo, that one's great.

I'll have to take your word for it. [Grasps his lapels in a not-unfamiliar fashion, as something else occurs to him.] You know, now that I think of it, we never got properly introduced, did we?
helpline: (a little bit smarmy)

[personal profile] helpline 2015-12-15 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think we have, [ said with a small nod, as the Doctor looked over at Qubit. ] I'm the Doctor.
superposition: (What difference does it make?)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-12-15 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Qubit's smile vanishes. Wh- no. No way, he doesn't even look like him... but then, this is a man known for changing faces every few years.]

... Just "the Doctor"?

[Following his self-dismissal from Hermann and Joaquin's company, Newt drifts around the room, only halfheartedly searching for Claire's familiar red hair. He doesn't really want to talk to her, regardless of what he claimed to the party he just left, not because she's not nice, but because he's never really sure she likes talking to him.

So finding Qubit is a godsend, because he really likes talking to Qubit, whether Qubit likes talking to him or not. Qubit's a friend. And, that aside, he's seriously glad to see Qubit actually bothered to come here as not-security for once, because getting him away from work is a miracle unto itself.

He feels less sulky already as he slides in next to him.]

I should have insisted you couldn't wear green.
superposition: (The devil will find work)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-03 06:12 am (UTC)(link)
Hah. You say that like it would've stopped me.

[Newt, if he didn't like talking to you, he wouldn't do it so much. It's almost spooky how effortlessly he befriended the seven two doctors. Ironically, the only thing about them that really makes him uncomfortable is how comfortable he is with them. He sort of feels like he's waiting for the other shoe to drop.]

Thanks for reminding me about this, by the way. It had totally slipped my mind. [That, and he hadn't planned on attending until he found out his friends were going to be there.]
driftsintobuffetline: (trying to explain)

[personal profile] driftsintobuffetline 2015-11-03 06:40 am (UTC)(link)
Well, no, but I should have totally laid some ground rules so I could at least be properly annoyed when you broke them.

[He would understand the feeling, if it were ever voiced. He's not used to having such an easy, quick friendship, but things have been weird for him lately in terms of interpersonal relationships as it is, so maybe they both should stop looking for the faults in this and start enjoying it.]

Sure, no problem. You should get out more. I mean, we--all of us, you, me, Hermann and Mako--should get out more. Maybe make it a regular thing. People do that, right? Game night or something...I think?
superposition: ((tight-lipped))

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-03 09:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[Qubit shrugs.] My team used to do poker nights every so often. I don't know that that qualifies as "getting out," though.

[Newt's not wrong, though. Qubit gets antsy when he doesn't have a problem to solve, true, but he also gets antsy when he spends too much time in his own head. He needs those connections outside of himself.]
driftsintobuffetline: (trying to explain)

[personal profile] driftsintobuffetline 2015-11-04 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
It's a start at least. Baby steps! At least tonight is going...well enough that we're not likely to crawl back into our caves on that alone.

But speaking of your team, Mr. Superhero, you're going to have to tell me more about this team of yours someday, man.
superposition: (I'm so sick and tired)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-04 04:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh whoops, where'd his smile go? It just vanished all of a sudden. Speaking of poker, have some poker face.]

... Someday. Not now. I, uh... don't want to bring down the mood.
driftsintobuffetline: (TEN YEARS EXPERIENCE)

[personal profile] driftsintobuffetline 2015-11-04 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Uh, right. Wrong topic.

[He trailed off into silence for a moment, looking for a new subject. Maybe something he can make light of. He toyed with his tie. Ah. There we go.]

You know Hermann totally ditched me for this military dude I was trying to get him to make friends with? Man, you bring a guy to a party and look what happens. How's that for gratitude.
superposition: (I think I can rely on you)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-05 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
[Glad for the change of subject, Qubit perks up a bit, scanning the room for Hermann. Ah, over there with Joaquin.]

Right, I was going to ask where he was. That's unusual, typically the two of you are joined at the hip.
Edited 2015-11-05 01:36 (UTC)
driftsintobuffetline: (I will throw this at you ok)

[personal profile] driftsintobuffetline 2015-11-05 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
[Newt follows his gaze, then looks back at Qubit instead.]

Hey, look, just because we [He makes a gesture that is supposed to imply sharing brainwaves.] and live and work together doesn't mean we can't do things separately. Seriously, we're not THAT codependent. I don't need him holding my hand or anything.
superposition: ((before the fall))

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-05 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Qubit holds up his hands, but he's smiling.] Wasn't saying you did, it's just an observation. "Inseparable" is the word I'd have picked.
driftsintobuffetline: (well yeah you could do that)

[personal profile] driftsintobuffetline 2015-11-05 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay. His smile admits his defeat there. ] I guess that's accurate. Not like we had much choice in that, but we never really did.
superposition: ((william hartnell eat your heart out))

[personal profile] superposition 2015-11-20 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[Heh.] How've you been, by the way? It's been a while since we touched base, hasn't it?
