V. ( video )

[ This is a face that hasn't appeared on the network for some time. The video comes on and Charles looks rather... Tired. He's propped the camera part of his desk. He has dark circles around his eyes. He has been fighting when dealing with it. He still looks very well put together, despite the obvious bags under his eyes. His hair is combed, he's clean. He isn't quiet for long once the video is on. He spins a black knight from his chess set in his fingers. ]

Loss - it is a complicated thing, isn't it? I've found myself losing track of time with the loss of sleep. Days keep...blending together.

It's left me plenty of time to think. I truly do miss Raven. I'm certain that she is doing something great back at home, whatever it may be.

[ He knows better than that, and his voice implies he does. It's a lot harder to maintain a mask when you haven't slept. He closes his eyes for a moment, there's something else he almost says, but he snaps his jaw shut. ]

I know it has been awhile since I've been on the network. For those who are newer, and those whom I haven't met - I'm Charles Xavier. I work in the Science Department.

It's been some time since I've made an offer for alcohol and a visit, so -- if anyone would like to stop by, let me know.

[Alex doesn't miss Raven. But he gets why Charles does.

She was his sister...even if she rejected him.]


...guess it's bothering you too.

[He can't sleep, either. The insomnia always bothered him, occasionally--but now it's worse.]

I guess?

I keep randomly bleeding but it's not too bad.

You okay? Need anything?

[The circles under Abby's eyes are far more pronounced due to the paleness of her skin. Her features are drawn, her expression a weary one. There's a stillness to her, a quiet sadness prompted by something he said that's causing her to think of things she'd rather not.]

Loss is the only guarantee in life. It doesn't matter what kind.

[She shrugs slightly.] I don't think I'm pessimistic. I've just seen enough to know that the only thing that remains constant is loss.

Hi, Charles. I'm Rikku. What kinda science are we talking?

Time always seems to blend together for me. Suppose I haven't noticed it lately.

[Between sleep and her own jumbled memories, it's easy for Rey to lose sight of what is going on in the present. A mere thought of the past can send her back to those moments, reliving every fragment of disorienting detail.]

Equally difficult to tell when the one lacks a day-night system as well. Unfortunate that there are no days to speak of. Should be used to that by now, but no.

[personal profile] lostkings 2013-09-20 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
But the question is, is it actually a day if the thing never really ends?

[personal profile] lostkings 2013-09-22 09:53 pm (UTC)(link)
And technically, time is one of those things that's actually just a concept.

The days are blending, aren't they? I miss a lot of things. I miss my car. It was stolen two years ago, but I still-- which really doesn't compare to missing a person, and I know from experience, but. That was still insensitive of me.

[ welp this is off to a great start. ]

Ned. Charles, I'm Ned, and I'm new. Well. As new as a person can be when they've been here before only now they have new numbers and they don't recollect having been here before.

An absence is still an absence, but the absence of a person is considerably more... absent.

Thank you, Charles. It's a pleasure to meet you.

[ anderson can understand the tiredness, given that she hasn't slept in days, either. ] Charles Xavier. [ why does that name sound familiar — right, because alex told her to talk to him. ]

Visit where?

I am deeply sorry for your loss.

[ The sleep deprivation is almost too much for him as well, and he sorely misses his home lately, trying desperately to make some sense of what is happening on the ship. Have a Knight of Camelot either way. ]

But at least you will not be want of company here.

[personal profile] credences 2013-09-24 11:09 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, it's strange how this place works.

[ He's been here for some time and still he wonders if he will ever return to the Camelot he knew. ]

It's better than some alternatives, but I imagine not better than most.
