Moon Base Station is, apart from certain restricted-access sectors, built for tourism. Some tourists, like Duo, are just killing time during a layover; others come here, to the cheap hotels or the expensive ones with a real-time video view of Earth, to spend their whole vacation within the base's walls.

There's a casino area somewhere not too far away, but River and Duo have opted for one of the more family-friendly bits instead. It's a shopping area, full of glittering storefronts and small food-court nooks, with an intricately tiled floor and fountains every few dozen meters. Tiny potted trees show off the station's opulence -- this is space, after all, where trees are hard to come by.

River's already found herself cotton candy somewhere.

Duo is already pulling on his tie a little, but leaves it alone before he can do any real damage. Even if he took it off in this less dressy area of the complex ('MARE TRANQUILLITATIS' as the sparkly sign reads) he'd have trouble tying it again later.

And somehow he doubts River is an expert on bow ties.

"What d'you think?"

"Oh, do not even talk to me about the nomenclature. The tourists think it's quaint, okay? And since we are tourists, we should act like it." Duo gathers up River's arm, adopting a chivalrous manner.

"What would you like to see? Oh hey, they've got a sweet viewing room that you can look at the Earth from."

"Then by all means! Let's meander in that direction. And are you sharing, or am I going to be watching you rebound off the wall once you're finished?"

It's not too crowded here at the moment- it is the middle of the week. They start to stroll toward where Duo remembers the viewing areas are located.

Well, then! Duo steals a piece of her cotton candy.

Sugary fluffy sugar. Duo enjoys sweets, but not usually this much in one go. Yikes.

This viewing area is sectioned off from the mall- mostly so it can be quieter. Some people want to stare at the Earth in peace.

Some people want to yell about it and pose pictures in front of it. It takes all kinds.

Duo looks up, silent for a moment. "Every time I look at it, I see something new."

Date: 2010-06-14 05:50 am (UTC)
maxwellsdemon02: (Contemplative)
From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
She doesn't need to say anything. "Yeah, that's what I usually think too."

They stand there in silence for a few minutes until a group of young twenty-somethings wander in, clearly buzzed if not actually drunk.

From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
Duo shoots them a glare. "C'mon," he says. "We can come back later if we want." Pretty scenery is not improved by rowdy drunks.

And even if you find watching drunk people amusing, it's not best done in front of pretty scenery anyway!

maxwellsdemon02: (Is that so?)
From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
"Lucky for us, then, huh?"

He glances around as they walk out again.

"Ever been in a casino?" Do they have casinos out where River's crew wanders around? They must.

Duo's eyebrows vanish behind his bangs. "Do you really? Of course you do. I just cheat."

He beams.

"We should play sometime!"

Date: 2010-06-15 04:58 am (UTC)
maxwellsdemon02: (Wasn't me)
From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
"Actually-" Duo says, with the air of someone who has just remembered something awesome "-some of the casinos here offer use tables to people who want to practice before placing bets against the house. They'd probably get mad at us if we sat there all night and didn't lose any money to them, but we'll probably get bored of cheating each other first. Wanna go?"

"Let's roll." They head towards a nice upscale casino in another part of the complex. 'MARE NUBIUM', this sign reads, and the metal walls and ceiling start to be covered by gauzy curtains, softening the angles of everything around them.

maxwellsdemon02: (Wasn't me)
From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
Seems she's in the right place! Metaphorically, at least.

"You know, there's actually some new kind of depressive hallucinogenic they're calling 'Clouds'. I hope no one tries to go for dramatic irony and uses it tonight where I can see them. I just got off duty."

Date: 2010-06-16 04:10 am (UTC)
maxwellsdemon02: (Facepalm)
From: [personal profile] maxwellsdemon02
"Hey, don't look at me. I don't volunteer for-" Uh. Well, there was that one time with the thing and the guy and the place.

And way back in training when-

Okay, FINE. He sighs.

"Nah, I agree. Not really all that much fun in the end, is it?"
