Who: Quatre, Edgeworth
What: A virus strikes! Quatre and Edgeworth are forced to stay within proximity of each other, lest they become terribly ill.
Where: The Maganac's village and base of operations.
When: Some random point in time.
Warnings: None!

The sun peaked through the curtains of the window, slowly bathing the small bedroom in light. It was a quiet morning; the only sounds that could be heard were those of men and women setting up shops at the market down the hill, and those were only faint echos at best.

It was a day to sleep in--not that Quatre normally did. There was something about this place, though, something peaceful and safe. Everyone knew who he was, just as they did nearly everywhere he went these days, but the Maganac Corps were like family, and so was everyone in the village by proxy. He could forget about politics and disarmament, at least for a moment, which was why--when a sliver of sunlight positioned itself directly over his face--the young man simply winced and rolled over with nothing more than a groan.

He could afford a moment more.
samuraiprosecutor: (Holy...?!)

Edgeworth would have appreciated another moment himself. Unfortunately, it was not to be. The boy's stirring roused him, and from there that treacherous sliver of sunlight made sure he would wake enough to register his unfamiliar surroundings. Then that cruel, cruel sunlight caught fine blonde hair on the pillow beside him, picked out the details of a frighteningly young face, and sent Edgeworth careening off the bed with a sharp curse. He hit the floor with a resounding thump, and more cursing followed, a steady stream of muffled invectives that rolled over the side of the bed as he lay beside it, covered only in his boxers and the corner of the bedding that had gotten tangled up in his legs.

Not again.
samuraiprosecutor: (they've got...girls on trampolines)

Oh sure. Look what it did for the last guy to point a gun at Edgeworth.

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-05 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
"Mr. Winner. Good morning," Edgeworth quipped as he struggled to free himself. For all the sarcasm lacing his words, he still kept a wary, even nervous eye on the gun until the boy lowered it.
samuraiprosecutor: (Whatchoo talkin' bout?)

Yep! They were so close Edgeworth even got a car out of the relationship!

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-05 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
The attempt was met with an acidic glare. Edgeworth leaned back out of the boy's reach and paused to make sure his point was well made before he set about extricating himself from the sheets.

"In case it wasn't obvious enough, this is a virus." He grunted as the sheets finally released him, then climbed gracefully to his feet, dragging the fabric up with him like a security blanket. He staunchly refused to look anywhere but at the boy's wide eyes. "Most likely we're stuck with each other for the foreseeable future."
samuraiprosecutor: (Uncomfortable)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-05 06:44 am (UTC)(link)
He glanced at Winner's splayed hands as if the gesture was a cruel trick. There was no bond connecting their wrists, no red string (thank God), no visible signs that this was anything more than an inconvenient trip out of Edgeworth's way. As far as he could tell, both he and the boy were even acting in a normal fashion, as evidenced by their mutual shock over waking up in...

Edgeworth's stomach gave a slight lurch. He sat down heavily on the bed, pulling the sheets up to his chest with one hand and massaging the bridge of his nose with the other.

"'Seem' is the operative word here. The community rarely sets up a game of musical worlds only to let the players call an end to it." He turned away, glancing at the window where full sunlight was now cutting through the crack between the curtains. "But I suppose there's no harm in going through the motions, at least until it asserts control again. If I could use your computer..."

He glanced over his shoulder and gave his companion a sheepish look. "And perhaps some...clothes." He finally looked the boy over with a skeptical eye; anything of his would never work.
samuraiprosecutor: (And then I got high)

Edgeworth seemed to relax a bit once the boy had made a move toward modesty. The sheets pooled in his lap as he settled back against the headboard.

"Underground?"
samuraiprosecutor: (Uncomfortable)

Yay~

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-05 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[bites back a derogatory comment about the kind of people Winner thinks are trustworthy, just nods as the boy leaves. he folds his arms across his chest and starts to take in his surroundings, but the boy doesn't give him much time to absorb it all. he returns only a few seconds later, mercifully clothed.]

[cocks his head at all the information he's suddenly fed. he doesn't recognize any of it, but he remembers enough from previous conversations (namely that the boy is or was a soldier) to make some sense of it, except for...] Gundam? I don't believe your predecessor ever mentioned the term.
samuraiprosecutor: (Formalwear)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-05 11:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[coolly] No, thank you.

[he waits for the boy to leave, then waits a bit longer before getting up and moving to the window. after a moment he pulls back the curtain and is surprised to find the village they're in appears to be in a desert--the buildings and the clothing on the people passing by look vaguely Middle Eastern. he muses over the things Winner said as he watches them.]

[it seems likely this Gundam is an element of their war, as are the Maganac Corps. since neither seems to be a carefully guarded secret any longer, the war has probably ended (or he hopes so, for his own sake as well as the sake of the participants). he wonders where on the timeline this Winner falls in relation to the one he once knew.]
samuraiprosecutor: (Kindly go fuck yourself)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-06 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Edgeworth is also looking considerably rougher than he did when the boy left. he's nauseated, flushed, strands of hair matted to his forehead. worst of all, it's a familiar feeling. he's starting to suspect the true nature of this virus, and isn't at all pleased. before Winner can leave the room he comes closer, under the guise of retrieving the clothes, and is rewarded with an unmistakable lessening of his symptoms.]

[heaves a long-suffering sigh and retreats to the other side of the bed.]
I won't be long.
samuraiprosecutor: (Uncomfortable)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-06 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[predictably, the clothes turn out to be very similar to the ones he'd seen on male passersby when he looked outside. not so predictably, the clothes were large on him, and hung loosely at his hips and shoulders. this Rashid must be a bear of a man...a potentially worrying prospect, considering whatever relationship he might have with Winner and the state Edgeworth and the boy found themselves in when they woke. perhaps he could avoid the man...]

[as soon as he's done he meets the boy in the hall. the roiling in his stomach instantly calms down, confirming his fears.] We can visit that base, but I don't think it's going to help as much as we hoped. I'm fairly certain you're stuck with me for a while yet.

samuraiprosecutor: (Are you..sure it's supposed to go there?)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-07 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
[color tinges his cheeks and his fingers tighten a bit on his hip.] I would appreciate that, yes.

[hesitates. getting a belt would most likely mean meeting this 'Rashid.'] I'll wait here. By the time you get back, we should both know for certain whether this is the virus I think it is.
samuraiprosecutor: (Seated looking up)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-08 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
[that certainly works. he relaxes a bit and hovers just inside the doorway, arms crossed as he observes the hunt. he feels a touch of nausea, but nothing like the pain he'd felt when Winner was gone.] I've experienced this virus before. Last time it was...more intense, but the symptoms were the same.
samuraiprosecutor: (NO U)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-08 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
[accepts it gratefully, though that doesn't stop him from giving it a quick once-over with a critical eye. it's a very fine silk, undoubtedly expensive. runs it through his fingers a moment, enjoying the soft texture, then ties it around his waist. he nods as he does so, keeping his eyes on what he's doing.]

[mostly to himself, with obvious distaste] At least we can be grateful we aren't being forced to touch each other.

[looks up as he finishes.] Is this the first virus that's affected you?
samuraiprosecutor: (Melancholy)

[personal profile] samuraiprosecutor 2012-01-08 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
[don't worry, Quatre bb. it's not you, it's him.]

Ah... [that definitely prompts a few memories, as well as wonder over how several other people (Mikaela, Butz, his own sister) are doing.] I experienced that one myself, fairly early on. It was...one of the tamer ones.
