[ Marco is a boy used to his schedule.

Wake up, go to class, go to Animorphs meeting after school, go on a traumatizing mission, go home and sleep, and then wake up to another day of going to school, saving the world.

Wings and no need for money aside, Marco has felt . . . severed? Disconcerted? He's like a seaman without a sea to fish in. Michael Jordan without his Nikes and basketball, or Steve Irwin without a crocodile to harass.

He's like Joxer without Xena.

That said, that doesn't mean he makes a schedule on his own. In his paranoia he doesn't make it terribly consistent, but it's there.

In the Morning, Marco wakes up in whatever room he's in - he's still doesn't trust the place to really give himself a place, so he move from room to room in different community buildings. Deep down he knows what he's doing is pointless, but he just can't shake off that restless, distrustful feeling.

But still, every morning, he'll go to the Bakery and get his typical breakfast of orange juice and donuts. (Best breakfast, he thinks, although Tobias might disagree with his preferred Raw Rat Taffy.) You'll might see him stuffing his face with the donuts.

In the Afternoon, however, it is a little different.

Sometimes you might see him at the Smithy, looking at the weapons with a calculating yet distrustful expression. He won't be there for very long.

Later in the afternoon, you won't see Marco at all, no matter how much you try to find him. In fact, Marco the boy has, for all purposes, disappeared.

However, if you noticed Marco's wings from earlier - one right wing black, the other white - then you might see an osprey with two sets of wings, one a large, obviously natural set of wings and the other pair smaller, harder to see due to the black and white feathers of an osprey, but still there. An observant individual might take note of this.

Marco will be flying around, taking note of the village and other places. But you might spot him rest on top of a roof or a lamppost in the village, or a tree branch just on the edge of the woods. Say hi, and maybe he'll humor you, or poop on your head.

In the Evening, Marco will go to the Good Spirits bar. He'll drink his soda and his grilled cheese, looking around. For once, he's actually looking for company, as he slowly learns to accommodate himself in this world.

Who knows, maybe someone might tell him that maybe an Animorph was here before. ]

[Vash can't help but to notice the boy enter Good Spirits in the evening. Don't always see people so short enter the bar, but it's not exactly not heard of either.

He smiles over and waves at the boy.]
Mmhmm! That looks like a pretty good meal! Although I hope that's root beer in that glass.

Oh man, I hope not! What would I drink otherwise? [He abandons his beer to move closer and whisper into Marco's ear.] Although I heard, that those- [He points over to the beer taps.] Are poisoned to cause temporary insanity.

From: [personal profile] goldenglasses
What!? Why? I didn't do anything to it! And all the adults know it does that! I think it's something the Malnosso did! [Or that it's called alcohol.] I'm just saying you should stay away from it.

All good!

Who me? No way! I'm not at all responsible enough to run a business.

Kinda? This place tends to change ownership each time someone leaves or comes back. So it helps if you look after yourself and not make too big a mess.

goldenglasses: Maker on LJ (Damn I look good!)
From: [personal profile] goldenglasses
Yeah, it does take awhile to get use to it, but it's pretty nice once you do!

From: [personal profile] goldenglasses
Eh, things can be tough now and then in this village without us picking on each other. I personally like that we're all getting along.

goldenglasses: Maker on LJ (Huh? What you say?)
From: [personal profile] goldenglasses
Well, it's hard to tell with the Malnosso to be perfectly honest. Sometimes they just force you to wear silly costumes and then another time I got turned into a doughnut once. Glad I wasn't eaten then!

[Vash smiles ruefully, but he knew it was probably better to let the kid be prepared for something like that then to lie. Still, he hated having to do this to anyone. He tries to pat Marco's shoulder in what he hopes to be a comforting manner.]

Don't worry, it's not always bad. They made everyone's wings big for awhile too. [Okay, so that wasn't an experiment in the end, but details!] That was pretty fun.

[Restless as this place makes him, Birdy frequently takes to the skies when he's not in the Battle Dome or drinking at the bar. He notices Marco the osprey perched on a roof, and he swoops in to touch down nearby. He doesn't immediately notice the second set of wings; Birdy is assuming this is just part of Luceti's natural fauna. What can he say: sometimes he feels better being around other feathered folk. Naturally feathered folk, that is.]

From: [personal profile] feathersharp
[Birdy tilts his head amusedly in response. One could almost call the motion bird-like.]

Ah -- hope I'm not intruding on anything.

[He gets interesting responses from the local birds sometimes when he talks to them. Usually the female ones find him attractive.

On a side note, his deep voice should easily give him away as male.]

[Rude, Marco. Birdy is not a parrot and he prefers ramen, thank you very much!!!

Anyway, he gives a soft chuckle at Marco's casual response -- which is about when he sees the second set of wings camouflaged among the natural feathers.]

Huh. Didn't realize Luceti would import wildlife from other worlds, too.

[The words popping into Birdy's head startle him for a moment, and he glances around, as though someone else has joined the conversation. But he soon figures that he can blame this on Marco.]

Oi, how are you doing that?

From: [personal profile] feathersharp
[Magic's as good an answer as any for Birdy. Though...]

Yeah? You're not reading my mind like this, are you?

[He's going to have to quit this conversation if that's the case. B|]

feathersharp: (longing for the air)
From: [personal profile] feathersharp
No kidding.

[Said with in a tone drier than a desert. Not that Birdy doesn't believe Marco or anything (well, okay, he is still a little skeptical), but he's sort of the worst at expressing sympathy.]

[Sam's been spending a lot of time at the nightclub recently, what with DJing there and all, but tonight he fancies something a little quieter so he heads to Good Spirits for a drink. Say what you like, they do pretty good beer.

He goes to sit at the bar, next to a young looking kid. God, when did he start seeing teenagers as 'young'. That's depressing. He's kind of staring around though, a bit taken aback and Sam can sympathise with that.]

You look a bit lost. Are you new here?

[Sam shrugs.]

Sorry. You looked like you weren't sure what to make of the place.

There is that, I suppose. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it's not so bad here.

voiceinthedark: (Good job)
From: [personal profile] voiceinthedark
Yeah, it makes a nice change.

[Peaceful is good. Peaceful is pretty amazing.]

Mmmm, sometimes I've heard people get drafted. There was someone who tried to invade a while back, a few months ago. Other than that it's pretty calm.

Pretty much. As much food and water as you need and electricity.

[he pauses for a moment and then shrugs.]

Admittedly, I might have lower standards than most people.
