[Turlough just can't help but stare at that outfit. Was that...those shoes had to be at least a couple of inches high. He blatantly stares at her for a moment, baffled, but then it finally connects in his brain that staring is rude, and so, as if to make up for his blatant staring, he walks over towards Effie, nodding at her as he approached her bench.]

New arrival, I take it?

[because let's be real, no one in Asgard would wear something like that.]
chinsup: (❤ Elephant in the room.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
[This is the very height of fashion in the Capitol, young man. >:(

But Effie looks up and looks significantly brighter at being addressed, though not so much at being called a 'new arrival'.]


That is what they're telling me, but no one seems to be listening.

[With a slight huff, her legs crossed at the ankle, the very picture of a lady.]

I simply must find Katniss and Peeta before we're all late for our first engagement.

[Tracking down Haymitch is a lost cause. She's half convinced this is somehow his fault.]
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah well we're not in the Capitol, are we, huh?

At her statement, Turlough can't help but smirk, shaking his head. If she thought she could get home in time for an appointment, then she must be in some serious denial.
]

And tell me just how you'd manage to make that appointment from a different world?
chinsup: (❤ Capitol Couture.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
[Effie looks somewhat affronted at the accusation that she would ever be late -- and her eyes narrow slightly, defiant.]

You have absolutely no idea what I work with.

[And she stands, brushing down her skirts.]

The "faceless" woman who gave me this delightful little story has a very good surgeon, I will give you that -- but I've had it up to here with this nonsense and I have plenty to occupy my time elsewhere, so if you'd kindly instruct me to the nearest station, I would more than appreciate it. The Capitol would reimburse you for your time.
failassassin: (eyebrow goes up)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
I've never heard of this Capitol in my life, [Turlough responds, getting a bit more annoyed.]

And what kind of station? Train station? I don't think Asgard even has trains, it's so technologically deficient.

[which is still a bit of a sort point to Mr. Traveled Through Space.]
chinsup: (❤ You deserve better.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
The Capitol.

[It's an automatic correction, though Effie looks a little... less certain and bossy as Turlough continues. The outlier Districts are poor, certainly, and most have never been on a train, but they know what they are. Technology is bizarre, but not unfamiliar, and for a city to not even have a station when District 12 does is a little...

Well.]


There must be a station, as I was on my way to it, with -- Katniss and Peeta?

[It's said a little uncertainly, a question more than anything else. Everyone in Panem knows Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark -- and everyone in Panem knows her by extension.

Maybe this person just... lives underneath a very large rock.]


The Victors of District 12. Surely you know them.
failassassin: (bwuh?)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 02:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Effie is met by blank stares. Blank, confused, slightly worried stares. Nothing that she's saying is ringing a bell and that much is obvious from Turlough's expression.]

I don't know who you're talking about.
chinsup: + katniss (❤ Never in our favor.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
[This

has stopped being aggravating and has officially become slightly terrifying.]


That's...

[Her fingers are unintentionally worrying at her bracelet -- and without much more warning, Effie stands, carefully stepping around Turlough.]

If you'd excuse me.

[Her Victors must be around here somewhere, or perhaps Flavia and Octavia, Cinna, anyone she recognizes. They'll be able to wake her up from this severe delusion.]
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Turlough lets out a small laugh, as Effie starts to leave.]

They're probably not here, you know. [Vislor Turlough: Major Pessimist.] At least, that's how it is for most people here.
chinsup: (❤ Manners!)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
[She pauses before turning around, lips pursed together.]

They are here. I just need to find them, as they obviously cannot manage to be punctual without me there to time their watches.

[If Katniss and Peeta aren't here, then Effie has been kidnapped, and someone is going to fix that for her. Surely there's a government official that can assist more than faceless maids.]
failassassin: (faucet tap of death)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
You're fighting a losing battle, [Turlough sighed, putting his hands in his pockets.] There's no need to worry about your schedule back home, because you're never going back, and there's no need to worry about those people as they're probably not here either.
chinsup: (❤ Quarter Quell.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
[It's rare that Effie gets legitimately angry (casual frustration and exasperation at the Victors of her District hardly count as legitimate anger) but she is reaching that point with this... stranger who keeps telling her what she definitely doesn't want to hear.]

I am going to go home.

[Crisply, lifting her chin, every inch a lady who is going to get her way no matter what it takes.]

You can continue to attempt to dissuade me all you like, but that will not change that fact.
failassassin: (bwuh?)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 05:51 am (UTC)(link)
You're not going anywhere!

[he responded, obviously exasperated. Why couldn't this woman just realize she was stuck here, like a normal person?]

You're stuck in Asgard, just like the rest of us.
chinsup: (❤ re: Katniss Everdeen.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 02:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, with an attitude like that, I certainly will be.

[WHY DOES EVERYONE SHE MEET LACK MANNERS]

If you refuse to assist me, then I'm going to find people I both know and trust. I'm not going to simply believe a stranger when they say that the only two --

[And Effie trails off, because her voice is beginning to edge from practical superiority to honest distress, and she sucks in a deep breath to steady her tone, raising a finger to indicate that Turlough give her a moment before continuing.]

-- the only two children capable of this insanity aren't here, so if you will excuse me, I am going to go find them, and you may have a good day.
failassassin: (chilling like a villain)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 03:56 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm trying to assist you, but you're not believing me,

[Turlough shrugged. If Effie wasn't going to believe him, then he wasn't going to fight it. She'd learn soon enough anyway.]

Still, I suppose I can't do anything if you're going to be so stubborn.
chinsup: (❤ re: Katniss Everdeen.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Why would I instantly believe that I've been dropped into another world with absolutely no way back to Panem? That's hardly going to be anyone's first instinct.

[Someone has not taken a few trips in a TARDIS.]

If this is true, then it'll become apparent soon enough.
failassassin: (faucet tap of death)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 04:29 pm (UTC)(link)
You'd believe it because you have a brain for one. Look at this, [Turlough said, as he held up his arm. With his other hand, he pointed at his bracelet.]

Do they have things like this in your Panem? I highly doubt it.
chinsup: (❤ I hope you're proud of yourselves.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 04:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[It takes a moment for her to look down at the bracelet -- the one she's been steadily ignoring since it was given to her -- and she frowns at it before looking up at Turlough, eyes narrowing slightly.]

It's a bracelet with holographic imagining capabilities.

[A bit flatly, and Effie raises up her arm to jingle the normal ones on her arm, and though they don't have the same technology, Effie feels like being a little trite.]

I don't live in a jungle.
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-05 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Well done, your world's not as backwater as Earth, [he responds, obviously sarcastic. Moving his arm down, Turlough fiddles with his bracelet slightly, as if for something to do.]

It's more than just a bracelet-it can connect with all the other bracelets, as sort of a massive internal network. Think of it as a magical internet.

[He hates to use that word: magic. But, that's what it is, so he might as well use it.]
chinsup: (❤ This is all for you.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-05 04:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[Effie eyes him for a moment before activating her own bracelet -- and just like that, a list of accessible names appears. She frowns carefully for a moment before she types in a name.

Peeta, she knows, is adaptable. He's capable of charming anyone who comes across him. If he's here, then he's already somewhere safe and sound. Katniss, on the other hand, probably shot the faceless maid on sight, and so ...

K - A - T - N -I -S - S.

And there's an impossibly delighted gasp of surprise as the bracelet quickly gives her what she needs.]


She is here -- ! Good -- does this bracelet have a locator embedded in it? And if it does, is it easily removed?

[Because Effie is fairly certain Katniss would've destroyed it by now if it was.]
failassassin: (doctor you make me worry)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-06 12:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Turlough watches Effie, hands in his pocket as she types in a name, and then has a gasp of surprise.

Oh, so one of them was here. The problem now was Turlough had no idea whether it was Katniss or Peeta that she was talking about (both of their names were strange in his mind.)
]

I don't think so, [he responds, with a frown.] That is, I don't think it has a locator.
chinsup: + peeta, + katniss (❤ My Victors.)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-06 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, if there is, I'm certain Katniss has committed an act of vandalization and destroyed it by now.

[With a slight sigh, but no matter.]

I'll be able to track them down without one, it won't be a problem.
failassassin: (chilling like a villain)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-06 03:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe they'll have better luck talking sense into you than I did,

[his tone is PURELY sarcastic.]
chinsup: (❤ Manners!)

[personal profile] chinsup 2013-12-06 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[Effie tosses him something of a flat look. As she's a little calmer than before, she's realizing that dealing with this individual is no worse than dealing with Haymitch, and she speaks loftily.]

Should you be correct, I will personally extend my apology and buy you a drink.
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2013-12-07 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
In that case, prepare your apology. And my name's Turlough-contact me on that bracelet when you realize I'm right.
