[milliways] conversations with/for/about people who may or may not be dead

[After this.]

The last group job at Angel Investigations -- a fairly routine intervention to take out a pair of vampires who'd been killing homeless people in Morningside Park -- wrapped up a few days ago. Spike's doing a post-mission patrol to be sure they haven't disrupted anything local beyond what they intended; Gunn's taken care of the internal paperwork; and Jonathan's been putting together the written summary to hand over to the local Watchers.

Hopefully he's finished by now, because he's about to be interrupted.

He glances up as the door opens.

"Hey, Andrew."

"For you, always." He leans back, studying Andrew's face. "Something wrong?"

"I don't think I ever got his surname, but I met a kid called Noah. The ghostish guy?"

Jonathan looks at him steadily.

"He said a little bit about it - but I think when he said sacrifice, he was talking about leaving the world and he'd already been dead a while."

"I don't think so. He was mostly scared that being in Milliways would mess up what he'd been trying to do, and he was skittish about saying too much."

Jonathan is letting him.

"That's good. Bar gave him a newspaper the first day he was here that set his mind at rest a bit, but hearing it from a friend - and somebody who knows what you're asking - is better."

"So you said you found out how he died."

It's calm, the gentlest of prompts.

Jonathan is very, very still.

His voice, when he speaks, mirrors Andrew's. "I see."

Whatever it is - and it's many things - none of them is hostility.

"Are you OK?"

[personal profile] jonathanparagon 2016-10-26 08:39 pm (UTC)(link)

"Yeah", Jonathan echoes. "I don't really - remember it.... what about the kid?"

[personal profile] jonathanparagon 2016-10-26 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)

Jonathan winces.

"Yeah, I know. You saw one of his - episodes?"

[personal profile] jonathanparagon 2016-10-26 08:56 pm (UTC)(link)

"Maybe you're not", he says gently. "I mean, I don't know why his friend did it. Was it - was it for personal power, or...?"

"And the two things were connected? Waking the ley lines would help him get his money back?"
