[F] Life is Music

Post  meadowlark on Tue May 10, 2011 2:10 am

Roderich strolled along the path around the pond, listening to the music that was the natural world around him. The wind whispered in the trees and the birds of all sorts called to one another, falling silent as he passed and starting up again once he had left their territory. His violet gaze scanned the part of the park he could see, coming to rest on a bench. He made his way over, sitting down on it and leaning back, closing his eyes and allowing the sounds of the park to sweep over him.

Children’s laughter could be heard in the distance and the water among the reeds lapped nearer to him. The angel took a deep breath, remembering why he liked to spend his time here. He opened his eyes again as he heard footsteps approaching.

As much as Jin loved drop kicking the damned into cauldrons of burning hot oil, lately he was finding his alotted time on Earth to be just as exhilarating. The lack of fire and brimstone was refreshing, to say the least. However, being around so many humans made him antsy; every instinct was screaming at him to rip them apart in the most terrifying ways imaginable, but unlike the bodiless souls he usually dealt with, these things were still alive and well.

...That isn’t to say that he wouldn’t ever be seeing them again. The line to damnation was never-ending after all.

Not wanting to explain another out of place 'accident' (he really was horrible when left unattended), Jin forced himself to stay within the park until it was time for his shift at the casino. Long ago, the occasional trills and chirps would have been enough to keep him content; though now, without agonized wails, everything just felt...blah. He’d been in the park for a full two hours, absolutely bored out of his mind, when he came across an oddly dressed man with the most striking eyes he’d seen in a while.

The seraph turned in the direction of the approaching being. His violet gaze flickered over the small...man he supposed. Though if the feeling he was getting was any indication this was one of the angels, or was at one time. He studied the other for a moment, not recognizing him as one of the Host of Heaven, so one of the Fallen probably.... Then again he'd been spending a frequent amount of time among the humans again and so didn't have all of the angels' features in his immediate memory. Until he determined otherwise, he'd just leave it at being.

Roderich nodded slightly to the younger being, "Good afternoon."

Jin glanced at the other after being addressed, trying to figure out what to make of him. The man was definitely giving him an otherworldly vibe, but at the same time, smelled almost completely human. So, this was either an extremely pious human or a very down to earth angel... Eh, whatever. He was never really good at telling the two apart anyway. Still, it was best to proceed with caution – the slaves of Heaven didn’t need to know bad the demon infestation in Eden was.

“Is it?” he asked with a hint of cynicism. “Seems average at best.”

Roderich eyed the other being. Definitely a Fallen then. He didn't know of any other angels off hand who spent enough time among humans to gain that level of cynicism. He weighed the pros and cons of continuing a conversation with an unfamiliar demon and decided he was bored enough, "I suppose that's true, still 'average afternoon' hardly makes for a decent greeting."

Oh wow, an actual response; Jin was expecting the other man to ignore him. Normally he would've left it at that, but it had been a while since he'd started an argument for the sake of...starting an argument.

"I'm sure it'd totally catch on if enough people said it," he replied with a shrug. "Or like, if the celebrity of the month happened to post it on their blog, just to seem ironic. People are surprisingly easy to manipulate in that sense...despite all protests otherwise~"

Roderich's brow arched sharply at that, "I think naive might be a better description. Manipulation is such a...twisted way of thinking of it." He shrugged, "But who am I to correct the vocabulary of one in so evident a possession of a broad one?" Alright, now he was baiting him. Why he wasn't sure, but he was.

"Funny, I was about to ask you the same thing... Well, eventually. I mean, I was totally going to lead up to it, but since you've presented the opportunity so soon, I might as well ask, right?" Jin offered the other a vague smile that barely reached his eyes. "Who are you? Or should I say, 'what' are you?"

Ah, there it was. Now, how to answer that question...His hand rested on the unlocked violin case at his side. "What, you don't enjoy the mystique of not knowing?" He wouldn't lie, but hedging wasn't lying... technically.

"Eh, not really; I'm nowhere near as patient as I used to be. Besides, you didn't look at me like I was growing a second head after I asked the question, so I assume you know exactly what I'm talking about."

Jin looked down at the instrument case the man had moved for, tensing up a bit.

Roderich nodded slightly, "Good guess. I'm one of the Host still. I take you to be a Fallen, yes?"

Roderich's lips quirked slightly, "You exude a supernatural aura, and the cynicism in your tone is one I've yet to hear from an Angel." He looked the other over, "Otherwise, until that display, not much, but I'd say it's enough."

"Well, at least it wasn't too obvious. You know, you'd probably blend in a little better if you took some time to update your wardrobe; you've got the time, right?" Jin always wondered why Angels found it so difficult to hide themselves while on Earth. He remembered overhearing some humans talking about a red-headed woman that was (literally) floating around the city.

...Then again, they didn't exactly need to be as sneaky as Demons, did they?

"So how's it going up there? Still posh, perfect, and pleasantly bland?"

"If I wanted to update my wardrobe I would do so, but I certainly wouldn't take fashion advice from you." Roderich replied icily before shrugging, "Perfectly bland I suppose, so I would say it hasn't changed much. Missing a few original members, but you were already aware of that."

"That was totally uncalled for," Jin frowned, feigning insult. "You're supposed to smile and nod until I go and maim someone...then you can rag on my fashion sense as much as you'd like. Unless your Father's finally allowed you all to grow a backbone."

"Terribly sorry then. I didn't realize calling your fashion sense atrocious required the death of a human these days." Roderich replied, dryly, a smirk playing about his lips, "I'd say the same to a human too if it's any consolation." Which he knew it likely wouldn't be.

"My priorities may be a little backward, but at least I have them; can't say the same for the rest of the Fallen," Jin said with an odd look. "And if 'atrocious' lets me walk around without getting stared at, then I guess it's worth being insulted by a Seraph."

Roderich shrugged, "When I find a style that's more comfortable for me I'll change it. At least I'm doing without starched collars. Besides, it's easier to deal with changes in temperature when there are more layers to what you wear."

"You're pretty stubborn for an angel," Jin noted, tilting his head slightly. "The ones I've run into usually just...spew Bible passages at me. ...You're like, not trying to distract me while someone else breaks a violin over my head, are you?"

...That was how Seraphs used music to fight, right?

The Seraph looked at Jin aghast for a moment. "I can guarantee that I am not distracting you so someone can break an exquisite instrument like that over your head. It would be a waste of a good violin. And I'm not most angels. I never have been and I certainly never will be."

"No, you're not like the others...which is probably why I'm enjoying this so much~"

Jin really did find the whole situation to be quite amusing; it was rare to find someone who could come up with such sharp comebacks.

"Hn...don't you feel out of place, being so different from the others? Thought any sense of individuality was frowned upon up there...it might grow into something less wholesome~ Oh...is that why you smell so human?" he guessed, eyes widening. "Can't risk sticking out like a broken thumb, so you spend your time hanging around these things all day?"

"Out of place? Perhaps a bit, but no that's not the reason I spend my time down here. I prefer the complexity of humans to those of us of Heavenly or Damned inclination. They have options before them, and they make choices based upon those--sometimes unconsciously. They're fascinating really." Roderich replied, leaning back against the bench a bit.

"I guess that's true...but you like, can't deny that if persuaded to go one way or another, they'll gladly do so; if not on the first attempt, then almost certainly on the next." The 'young' demon stuffed his hands into his jacket's pockets, giving another vague smile while still keeping a wary eye on the instrument case. "Pleasure and fear is what they respond to the most, anyhow."

"One catches more flies with honey than with vinegar." Roderich replied, "Gentleness works wonders. I never said they weren't fickle things, just that they were fascinating."
