The rafters have a few advantages.

They're comfortable, for one thing! (If you're River Tam.) And interesting. And sometimes you find candy. And they provide a fun change of perspective.

And sometimes they're a good way to find people.

Especially when those people are really oblivious to the third dimension of their surroundings.

(Nita's got garlic in one pocket and a cross in another, okay? There's only so much vigilance she can handle.)

It misses her tea, but bounces off her manual. She jumps, startled, and looks up.

Nita blinks.

". . . Hi."

Rueful: "Not as well as I thought I was, I guess." She props her chin on one hand. "What's up?"

She's only talked to River Tam a couple of times, but she's kind of hard to forget.

She looks curious. "What are you monitoring?"

From: [personal profile] nita_callahan
Nita blinks. The first thing she thinks of is

(ne'er was a dream So like a waking)

her functionally invisible attacker. (If you can't remember a face, you may as well never have seen it at all.)

"You can't see what you're monitoring? That must make things difficult."

From: [personal profile] nita_callahan
Huh.

"Okay."

Nita watches her walk, wondering if that's the end of the conversation.

It probably helps that this person has a habit of finding dark and shadowy areas and occupying them in any case. And one person's change of perspective is another's comfort zone, because even several years to get used to Milliways doesn't kill old habits.

Like reading in the comparitive dark, which what Havelock is doing at the moment; sitting comfortably against one rafter, legs extended along another, and altogether blending in quite nicely.

From: [personal profile] oneman_onevote
She's a little to one side of him, and it takes until he tilts his head fractionally, turning a page, that he catches a glimpse of pink at the corner of his eye and stills to focus on her for a moment.

Then he nods in polite recognition.

From: [personal profile] oneman_onevote
He watches openly, noting the fluid way she moves, the way she doesn't need to look down to be perfectly assured even though a fall from this height could hurt badly.

It's both familiar, and not, from watching his fellow students at the Guild. Moving in shadow, they are always holding themselves tense and alert for danger or competition so that sometimes, against all logic, they are more obvious. It would be very easy, he thinks, for the eye to slide past River if she wanted it to.

From: [personal profile] oneman_onevote
"Hello," he says, after a few beats of comfortable silence.

They haven't spoken that often, all things considered, but enough for Havelock to know that River will get around to what she wants to say in her own time. There's still no reason not to be polite and make a start on a conversation.

oneman_onevote: (Oh yes?)
From: [personal profile] oneman_onevote
"Oh?" he says, and shuts his book to give her his undivided attention.

(It's something in a language that looks something like Arabic, but isn't. Language Masters don't just earn themselves.)

Date: 2010-01-04 08:52 pm (UTC)
oneman_onevote: (Indeed?)
From: [personal profile] oneman_onevote
"Often," Havelock agrees calmly.

He doesn't glance away, but looks politely inquiring.

"Would it be preferable if they did not?"
