[Small kids are like a magnet for the Doctor. Especially small ones who look like they've been through a war zone.

He's never quite sure how to approach them in a way that's at all reassuring, especially when they're already as tightly wound as the little girl seems to be, but he can't just let her go by. So...he just goes for it; casually strolling next to her with a look of concern down at her.]

Hello...are you alright?

[She watches him approach, evidently cautious and still wary, though thus far she has yet to find any walkers. Which is somewhat reassuring at least. Clementine looks to him, almost considering the question for a moment.

If she is to be honest, that would be a no. She's not sure if she can trust this man or not, still understandably wary after the events back home. But at the same time, she can't get far without some help, and she still has some questions.]

I okay as anyone can be when they just wake up here.

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-05 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
I know the feeling.

[He smiles down at the little girl, trying to be somewhat reassuring. Well, he's usually pretty good at this.]

For what it's worth, you're relatively safe here in Asgard. There's a battle now and then, but at least you're not under constant threat.

[And from the looks of her, constant threat was probably the status quo.]

I'm called the Doctor, by the way. What's your name?

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-05 06:26 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. That's good. Lee taught me how to shoot, but I'm not sure about being in a war.

[She nods, a little reassured that they at least won't be constantly worrying about fighting.]

'The Doctor'? That's your name? I'm Clementine.
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-06 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
Hello, Clementine.

[He shrugs. You could set your watch by that question, which is fair enough, he supposes.]

Well, Doctor is what people call me. Close enough.

Would you like help finding your Welcome Hall? As much as we're not allowed to leave of our own accord, they do at least give us accommodations.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-06 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
I've seen plenty of doctors, but that isn't their name.

[Clementine raises an eyebrow, apparently not quite sure what to make of the name. Sure, people could be a doctor in terms of the profession, but that isn't their name. But it appeared that people were brought here from all over, so perhaps that might be normal for him for all she knows.

There is a tentative nod of agreement and small smile at that offer.]

I'd like that. So I don't get lost. I think there was supposed to be a map or something but I'm still not the best at figuring them out yet.

[That and. She is still a kid, so naturally figures an adult means some form of guidance and protection.]

beforethewar: (pic#6463737)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-06 06:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[Eight chuckles. Human children tend to always be a lot wiser when it comes to the unusual than human adults. A human adult probably would have made him argue for another ten minutes about his name.

He holds out his hand.]

May I see your bracelet, Clementine?

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-07 03:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Clementine is used to people being wary. For all she knows, he simply doesn't want to share his real name for whatever reason. But he is still an adult, thus someone she could perhaps trust and get some guidance or protection and help from at least.

At the question, she looks down to her wrist at the bracelet, raising it to show him.]

They gave it to me when I woke up in that strange room.

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-07 04:13 am (UTC)(link)
[He kneels and gently takes her hand to study her bracelet, and beams when he sees the color of her gem.]

I know exactly where you should be! You're in Sigyn House like myself.

[He holds up his wrist to show that he, too, has a bracelet with a little green gem. Then, Eight stands and motions for her to come along.]

It's not far, really, and the house has whatever you could need...and you won't need to use that gun in your pocket.

[His voice isn't scolding. She at least knows not to wave it around everywhere, frankly a disturbing thought, considering she's such a small child.]

C'mon, let's get you to the Welcome Hall. You look like you could probably use a hot meal and a place to rest.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-07 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. So you're in that housing too then?

[That doesn't seem so bad, if there is at least one sort of familiar face there at least. Clementine seems a little unsure about whether she might need to use her gun here or not, but still seems to want to keep it on her regardless, even if the idea of not using it is reassuring.]

I hope I won't need to. But it was...dangerous back home. So Lee taught me to use it just in case. What kind of food is there?

[Because now that he mentions food, she realizes how long it has been since she last ate and is kind of hungry all of a sudden. She makes to follow him, reaching a hand out to his almost instinctively.]
beforethewar: (pic#6697910)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-07 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[It's been a very, very long time since Eight had been a father, or even since he raised his granddaughter. Centuries, even, but some instincts never die. When she holds out her hand, he takes it without even really thinking about it. Once he notices what he's done, he smiles a bit.]

Well, my dear, we can find just about any of your basic foodstuffs. Nothing fancy, but if you have a craving for anything in particular, I'm not a bad cook. I can always go out and buy what we need and I can make it.

What would you like to eat?

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-07 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
[The smile at her lips only increases at hearing that, since this seems to infer things like fresh food. Bread and the like that she hasn't had in months. At this point, even something as simple as a sandwich would be heaven for Clementine after ages of scraping food from cans and tins.]

Is there fruit? Bread? Or...or chocolate?

[Hey, she is nine after all.]
beforethewar: (pic#6463737)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-07 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, yes, and...yes, I believe I can find some chocolate.

[Eight glances down at her and raises an eyebrow, grinning just slightly so she knows he's just teasing.]

Surely you can think of something better than that to eat. Go on, put a little more imagination into it! I'll let you know if it's something I can't do.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-08 06:45 am (UTC)(link)
I haven't had chocolate in months!

[But oh man. Fresh food again. Not from cans or tins. Clementine tries to think and comes up with:]

Maybe a pizza? I've mostly had stuff from cans back home for a while.
beforethewar: (pic#6002197)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-08 07:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Ah, kids and their love of pizza.]

Hmm...yes, I believe we still have a pizza in the freezer I can put in the oven if you like. I don't think there's delivery around here.

[The rest of the way to the Welcome Hall, he simply walks with her and lets her take in the sights. Easier to get her bearings if she knows what everything looks like on the way home.

Finally they head down the path across the expansive yard in front of the lovely green building that is their home. Eight leads her up the steps and inside.]

Now, if you go upstairs, you can easily find your suite. They do like to make things easy for us around here. Keeps us happy and interacting with others. Anyway, you can go on up and clean yourself off if you like, while I prepare us some dinner down here in the kitchen.

Is that alright?

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-08 07:57 am (UTC)(link)
[And see that enthusiastic nod and smile? Yeah, that means Clementine heartily approves, even if it's frozen from the freezer and there aren't deliveries like there were back home before things went chaotic with the walkers. She can't help but look around though, trying to remember the route and take in their surroundings as they make their way to the housing.]

Okay then! Are you sure the clothes will fit me?

[Since she can manage a shower and the like herself, and knows enough not to go into the rooms obviously in use by others at least.]
beforethewar: (pic#6463737)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-08 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I haven't heard any complaints on that end yet, so I'm pretty sure.

[Eight gently turns her towards the stairs.]

Go on, then. When you're done, the pizza should be almost ready. And hopefully by then, I'll have found some chocolate. Deal?

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-09 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
Okay then.

[If the clothes are too big, she can always come back down and let this doctor man know. Clementine nods in agreement before making her way upstairs. A shower and change of clothes sound almost like heaven to her already.

After about twenty minutes, she is back down, in fresh clothes and having put her own dirty ones in a corner of her room for now to be washed later, hair still a bit wet but thankfully it is still cut shorter and at least not dripping as she comes back downstairs and sits at the table.]
beforethewar: (pic#6750935)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-10 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
Ah! Hello, Clementine! Feeling better?

[Eight is working at the kitchen counter, grabbing plates and digging around for the oven mitts. Once he extracts them from their hiding place, he opens the oven and pulls out the pizza. With a little flourish of the circular pizza cutter, he cuts it up and slides a wide slice on each of the two plates.]

It's not fresh from the pizzeria, but it will do in a pinch!

[He slides the plate in front of her, deposits the other in the place next to her, and goes to the refrigerator for drinks.]

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-10 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
I am! I hadn't had a shower in forever.

[Which is. Actually true, given the state of chaos after the walkers started showing up and infected. She may have spent a bit longer than usual in the bathroom as a result. Her gaze follows the pizza, and a smile graces her lips. Even if it was frozen, it's still pizza. Something she, again, hasn't had in a while now.

She reaches for the pizza, checking it isn't too hot before trying a bite.]

Mm! It's fine! Still pizza.
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-10 06:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Eight returns with a can of soda for her, because why not, and plunks it down in front of her. Then he sits himself down in front of his slice.] look like you've had a rough time of it. I can't say as I've seen too many children with a need for a gun in their hoodie.

[He tries to keep his tone as casual as he dares, but his eyes are full of concern.]

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-10 07:33 am (UTC)(link)

[Clearly busted. Clementine doesn't want to paint Lee or the others in a bad light, but she knows most adults wouldn't be too keen on the sight of a kid with a gun. Though the Doctor doesn't seem to be telling her off so much as asking about the situation leading to that.]

It's the walkers. Back home, everyone is infected, so people become walkers when they die and bite people. Lee taught me to use a gun to protect me.
beforethewar: (pic#6463608)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-12 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
[He's certainly not keen on children with guns, but he won't push the subject. The girl was careful with the weapon, he could tell, and wasn't waving it around like some children might, treating it like a toy.

Eight frowns thoughtfully at her words.]

So the Earth in your universe had been overrun by a sort of plague that kills the host and turns it into the walking dead to spread the infection. No wonder...

Well, as much as I wish it hadn't been necessary, it's good that your friend taught you how to defend yourself. Thankfully, I don't think you need to worry about anything of the sort here. I won't lie to you; there will be battles and there will be death, but like I said, it's a lot less frequent than you seem to be used to.

[Eight gives her a sincere look over his slice of pizza.]

And if you ever need my help, you just come find me or contact me on the network in your bracelet. Did the maids teach you how to use it?
Edited (just had to get that pun in...har har, I kill me.) 2013-09-12 03:22 (UTC)

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-09-12 05:00 am (UTC)(link)
[She tries some pizza, savoring the taste as she listens to him contemplating the information. She knows the gun is lethal, knows it isn't a toy. Clementine doesn't like that it was necessary to learn to use it, but understood the situation required it.]

I think I'll still keep it. Just in case, if there is still fighting.

[She looks to the bracelet at her wrist at the last question.]

I haven't used it yet.
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-09-12 06:44 am (UTC)(link)
Well, let's just hope the fighting never gets so bad that you have to participate.

[He sets his pizza down and holds up his own wrist, tapping the green gem. A flat surface of light like a computer screen appears in front of him and he points to an area that says "Contact List".]

If you go here...

[He taps it and a list of names appears.]

You can find my name and send me a message. Video, audio, text, whichever. It doesn't matter. I'll get to you as soon as I can.

Oh and, um, there will be a few people listed as "Doctor" in there. Pick the one with the number eight next to it. That will be me, though the others will also be glad to help you. It's what we do. Help people.
