[Okay, so Ellie has spent the days since Valentine's Day scrubbing herself clean and trying to forget the fact that she Did the Deed with Dirk Anger. And liked it. There is no feeling clean after that. There just isn't.

When she finally gets up the nerve to open the regain box, relatively certain it won't mess with her any further, she hits the roof. In the box is a blue tshirt with the EU logo printed onto the front of it. National and continental pride is all well and good, but the fact that she's just received what amounts to a mostly useless regain after what she's been through infuriates her.

To the phones!]


☠☠☠☠ this town and the people in charge of it.

Captain? Meet me at the Post Office. Now. [She's getting her ☠☠☠☠ choker back, even if it costs her both of her legs.]

Wretched, isn't it?

You don't know the half of it.

Oh, I know the whole of it. You got a bad regain, didn't you?

From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
There's nothing wrong with what I got. It's what I had to go through in order to get it that bothers me!

Get used to it. Whatever it was, whoever you were stuck with, Mayfield will do worse to you.

You're just a ☠☠☠☠ bundle of optimism, aren't you?

I'm experienced. You're green.

Just because I've only been here a few weeks doesn't mean I don't know what I'm doing, darling.

Of course things could be worse. Which is why I'm taking action now.

It's a word. Don't put too much thought behind it.

From: [identity profile] buildstherobots.livejournal.com
I wasn't planning on it.

Yeah... got it.

[He's going to meet her there because...

well...

He's afraid to say no.]

From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
[She meets him with a grim expression.]

I'm going in there and I'm getting my ☠☠☠☠ choker.

And you're going to help me when I come limping out of there maimed and bleeding.

Date: 2011-02-23 10:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
You know, I'll say it one more time... this place is a ☠☠☠☠ trap.

[Also, he isn't observant enough to know what the ☠☠☠☠ her choker has to do with anything.

Though notice him stand there obediently.]

Date: 2011-02-24 12:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
I know it is. But it's a trap I'm ready for.

[And in she goes! After a brief conversation with the Postman, she stumbles back out, box in hand. She's currently bleeding from her left eye socket (now empty) and her left ear. Her hair is now shoulder length, crudely-cut. And yet, she's smiling.]

Help me get this on before I bleed out.

Date: 2011-02-24 12:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
[Just staring...

After a moment he quickly get's over to help her get it out of the box and on.]


☠☠☠☠! What the ☠☠☠☠ did he do to you?

Date: 2011-02-24 12:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
Took an eye, an ear, and my hair, looks like. I'll be a ☠☠☠☠ poor marksman for awhile.

[She feels better when she gets it on (even after it pricks her skin and draws blood), but notices quickly that she's not healing like she should be. Of course, Mayfield nerfed the choker's power; she can tell the endurance and the strength and the speed are there, somehow, and suddenly much of the pain is gone, but... she's not healing.]

I'm... probably going to need a hospital, darling.

Date: 2011-02-24 12:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Yeah... yeah you will.

[Well, he put's an arm around her not sure if she should be walking right about now. He leads the way, he'll carry her if he has to.]

It better be worth it.

Date: 2011-02-24 12:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
It will be, once I'm done bleeding everywhere....

[She doesn't argue with how he holds her, draping an arm over his shoulders to help support herself. She's starting to feel woozy.]

Date: 2011-02-24 01:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
It better be...

[Or else what? The Captain is taking her to the hospital, hopefully they can fix this up.]

Date: 2011-02-24 01:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
[Or else he gets to rub it in her face. Ruthlessly.]

I... underestimated how much blood I'd lose.

Date: 2011-02-24 01:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
[That's it. Comments like that sound like stuff he'd say. He scoops her up and starts at a good jog.

He should have flight back.]


You're supposed to be the one who comes up with good plans.

Date: 2011-02-24 01:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
This is a good plan. It's... just taking awhile to get to the good part.

[She resists being picked up, but not very much. Yeah, loss of blood. Awesome.]

Date: 2011-02-24 04:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Oh yeah? Let me know when the good part happens.

[She can hurt him for it later. First to get her so she doesn't die on him.]

In the meantime I am going to tear down that post office.

Date: 2011-02-24 06:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
When I stop bleeding and start kicking ass. [Obviously.]

I got what I needed. Do what you have to.

Date: 2011-02-24 11:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Right, ☠☠☠☠ this place.

[He still doesn't know what the coller does. He just hopes she gets better and comes up with better plans than like what he is going to do this weekened.]

Date: 2011-02-25 03:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
[And what is he going to do this weekend?]

Mm. ☠☠☠☠ it indeed.

Date: 2011-02-25 05:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
You going to be okay if I leave you at the hospital or do I have to walk your ☠☠☠☠ home after?

[What is he going to do? Be a ☠☠☠☠ super hero. Or at least as good of one as he ever is.]

Date: 2011-02-25 05:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
You can leave me there, I'm an adult. [They'll treat her and release her when she's well enough to walk herself home, she imagines.]

Date: 2011-02-25 05:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Good. Call me if they start doing something strange.

Not like I care or anything.

[He'll be waiting within ear shot of a phone for a bit... not that he worries about his teammate.]

Date: 2011-02-25 05:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
[She almost smiles. She won't tell on him.]

I'll scream bloody murder for you if I need you.

Date: 2011-02-25 05:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Right.

No cheating and forcing the drones to scream for you.

Date: 2011-02-25 05:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
I won't, assuming they don't give me reason to make them scream.

Date: 2011-02-25 05:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] heartstar-blues.livejournal.com
Once you're here long enough, they all do.

[Waves.]

See you when you get out.

[Time to go be a jerk to random people.]

Date: 2011-02-25 05:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
See you.

[She's quickly taken back into the ER and treated for the blood loss, particularly from the empty eye socket.]

From: [identity profile] iflifehadaface.livejournal.com
[Scott can't help but plea with the girl on the other line.]

ACCENT LADY! DON'T DO IT!

I KNOW! I WAS THERE! WITH THE CAPTAIN! HE LOST HIS LEGS BELOW HIS KNEES! I IMAGINE YOURS LOOK VERY NICE! DON'T WASTE YOUR GAMS ON THIS!

Date: 2011-02-24 12:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
...you went with the Captain?

[VERY INTERESTING! No wonder he seems so determined to keep her from going!]

What did he gain for losing his legs?

Date: 2011-02-24 04:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iflifehadaface.livejournal.com
. . . PAIN. LOTS and LOTS of PAIN.

That fat ass Grady shot his kneecaps off for talking out of line. It isn't worth it, even for some thing sentimental. BELIEVE ME.

Date: 2011-02-24 06:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iflifehadaface.livejournal.com
Kneecap pain?! Look, he didn't go to the Post Office to get anything back. He went to fight Grady.. I only know of one person who's had the balls to go there and come back with some thing, and I don't think he's the person to talk to, really. Not worth it. Just be patient and things will come back eventually, okay?

I can't stand the thought of a hot girl being attacked.. You are hot, right?

What the ☠☠☠☠ does whether or not I'm attractive matter?

So late to the party

From: [identity profile] lovehatedrugs.livejournal.com
[Dirk overhears all this. I mean, it'd be hard for him not to overhear it, seeing as his phone is massive and covering up pretty much his entire face.]

Don't sound so ☠☠☠☠ upset about it.

Fashionably late!

Date: 2011-02-25 08:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
I have every right to be ☠☠☠☠ upset!

Do you know how many times I bathed after that disgusting display?! At least five---and I never bathe.

Date: 2011-02-26 08:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] with-an-accent.livejournal.com
You aren't the only one who's horrified by this, Anger. I showered for hours on end after it was over.

[And after that lovely reveal at the end there? She's tempted to go running back to the showers.]
