"You know, there are stories about a sky pirate called Iron Jaw," I laugh as I glance at her, cutting through the last bit of meat before I push the plate back toward her. "Scariest fucker that ever flew the wild blue - but he was missing the bottom half of his jaw. Just think about the kind of difficulties that had to have posed.

"And just think, if you ever doubt how scary you could be, you could pass terrifying and go straight for just plain uncomfortable. Eating and drinking as sloppy as can be, then still trying to cozy up to the poor lasses who have the unfortunate luck of sitting near you. Of course then you'll need to convert to lesbianism because I feel like threatening a sloppy cock sucking doesn't have quite the same horror attached to it, you know?"

My nose scrunches in disgust as I take my plate back, looking at him warily. 

"Nothing about that is appealing," I remark, frowning as I use my fork to unsteadily stab at a bit of meat. "I was raised with fucking books on my head, just the thought of stuff running down my chin makes me queasy."

"Were you really?" I ask with a laugh as I look her over appraisingly. "Yeah, I could see that about you, actually. You hold yourself like a noblewoman, which is rather endearing given your current socioeconomical condition, honestly."

"Even if I've had to forfeit the Kitanovski name, the training is practically beaten into you," I shrug, taking a bite of meat and setting my fork down as I grab the water. "It came in quite handy before, I could get just about anywhere with the right dress and the right money."

"I remember the Kitanovski family," I nod as I start cutting into my own food. "You had a nice house, if I recall correctly. I never had any reason to deal with your family directly, but I remember passing it a couple of times when I was in the city on other business."

"No, and you wouldn't have." I remark softly, staring down at my shaking hands as I will them to be still. 

"My father would have my head if he had even an inkling of how I made my own wealth when I was younger. Prided himself on keeping his father's business going above board. Found it distasteful how much crime had found it's way into the bigger cities around us, but he felt like Pallhagan was just small enough to be exempt..."

"How wrong he was," I respond dryly as I take a tentative bite of my food, my gaze wandering to her trembling hands. "Alright?" I ask, raising an eyebrow.

"Yeah," I say quickly, grabbing my fork back up as my other hand falls to my lap. "It's the second cup of tea," I clarify, my trembling hand raising slightly before falling back to the table. "Something in it makes my hands shake, it'll go away in a few hours. It usually does."

"Mmm," I nod, pointedly not mentioning that the second cup was not the moppy she seems to think it was. "Well, tell me if you start to feel funny so I can help if needed."

"I'm used to it," I shrug, "Beats seizures any day," I add with a lame laugh, carefully stabbing at a bite of squash.

"Indeed," I nod, still watching her thoughtfully as I eat my food. "The seizures? They're controlled well with just a touch of the tea here and there, yes?"

"Usually," I nod, "I might get a stray one every few weeks, but really it's only when I've gone without the tea."

"What does the extra tea do?" I ask curiously.

189 Re: These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends on Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:39 pm

"Uhm," I shrug, eating slowly as I look back up at him. "Some of it's for behavioral stuff, attention, the like, and the moppy is for the headaches."

"Do you get those often?" I ask as I pick up a spoon to dig into my squash.

"The headaches?" I ask, "Yeah. Usually after waking up, or if I'm very tired."

"So after you've come down from the tea," I observe, my statement coming off as less of a question now.

"No," I frown, looking at him in mild confusion. "What're you even asking..?"

"Nothing, I'm not asking anything," I respond with a shrug as I look at her with wide eyes. "I'm just... observing."

"Observe something else," I retort, "You're being weird."

"And you're hitting that bottle of concentrate awful hard when two cups give you the jitters," I respond as I take a sip of my own tea. "That's a little weird for someone who knows her doses well enough to know how much she needs to maintain control of her seizures."

"Stress makes them worse," I argue quietly, my shoulders sagging slightly as I look down at my plate.

"This has nothing to do with the seizures and you know it," I say firmly. "You're stressed. You're trying to make yourself feel better, or feel nothing. There is no other reason for it.

"I don't care if you abuse," I say, my tone shifting as I sigh. "It's not my problem - yet. But, as your guildmaster, I get the privilege of warning you: you're on a slippery slope. And if you slide too far and this becomes my issue, you won't have any moppy left to concern yourself with.

"I know that sounds hypocritical given my hands-off stance with Marnin," I say lightly. "But this is a matter of professional pride. I won't have junkie witches under my wing. I've seen where that road leads - I've walked it. So I am not exempt from this when I say that our craft deserves better than that shit. So, mind your discipline, Ljuba. The moment I think you're losing it, you're out. Of moppy, the guild, all of it."

"I'm not-" I start, my food forgotten as I hold my trembling hands in my lap. 

"Cut me some fuckin' slack, would ya?" I say lowly, "I've been livin' on fucking rice and broth just to keep at a proper dose, I had my shit in order, but then those fucking Mercer brothers showed up. 

"Miss Pandev," I practically snarl the words, "Richard with his smug fuckin- Fuck him."

"This is my slack, Miss Pandev," I say quickly as I lean in toward her with a deep scowl. "Like I said - I don't care if you abuse. Under the circumstances, I understand. But I'm warning you - don't fuck this up.

"You're only going to find yourself under more stress as you ingratiate yourself in the guild," I say evenly. "If this becomes your go-to for dealing with that stress, it's going to become an issue. And I know you have more potential than that, and I will be royally pissed if you throw it away because your bad day turned into a bad week, month, year.

"Fuck Richard," I say aggressively as I sit back to return to my plate. "Don't, for one second, give him the power to fuck you up with that shit. You are not Marnin. You are better."
