A Broken World - A Dark Angel RPG

Through purple skylights, an eerie lilac light filters down to illuminate an all but forgotten city known as the Seattle Underground.

The passages of the subterranean ghost town are dank and dusty. The windows and doors of long abandoned shops and dwellings break the monotony of red brick walls. Broken relics of a bygone era can be found scattered throughout the labyrinthine streets and buildings of the buried city, as well as more modern litter, left behind by urban explorers and shelter-seeking transients.

Patches of restored buildings mingle with ruin, the niceties of Pre-Pulse historical interest having offered partial salvation. But mostly, the decaying bricks remain coated with the soot and ash of a fire that raged long ago, the once-sturdy walls of the Underground now crumbling beneath the weight of the modern city built atop them.

Lex walked the corridors of the underground and considered dropping in to see Sari and Madi if there was time, but right now she had someone specific to speak to, and just this once it wasn't the second in command. She shifted the guitar she was carrying on her shoulder and looked around.

Ruby and Lenz were talking...loudly. Not loud enough to be an arguement, seeing as how only the little redhead was doing most of the talking.

"Lenz, how could you say that?! To Logan of all people! He's not only extremely cool, but he's a human. How could you say that and make him feel so...This is happening more and more you know? First the thing with Scale, then this? We need to tell someone Lenz," Ruby scolded.

"And make me more of a freak," Lenz whispered urgently to Ruby, "I'm just getting to where- I said I was sorry Rubes."

"Saying you're sorry doesn't stop this from happening," She reminded him sternly.

Ruby glanced up from their discussion to see Lex standing nearby.

"Oh hey Lex," She said weakly.

"Hey Rubes, Lenz..." She put the guitar case gently on the floor, out of respect to the mariachi acoustic inside. "...I would suggest you tell me what's going on, aside from worry, and a little anger."

Ruby shot Lenz a look, which he promptly ignored and smiled, "Oh nothing. Right Ruby?"

She held back a glare, but frowned and said, "Yeah. It's just a misunderstanding."

One that he won't address or let himself consider in the least, She thought a touch bitterly.

Lenz however was concerned with placating his sister, a duty that came above all else, including the feelings that threatened him at every turn.

"It'll be fine. I'll get it straightened out, I swear," He added the last bit to Ruby hoping she'd understand.

"I'm going to go see how Cain's doing. I'll talk to you later okay?" He smiled as he departed, leaving a very frustrated Ruby in his wake.

She turned to Lex with a wan smile and saw her equipment. "What's all that for? If you don't mind me asking," She put in quickly.

Lex flashed a grin at Ruby.
"Of course I don't mind! It's kinda a gift, in return for a favor. Some friends of mine have dropped in and brought with them a broken guitar amplifier. If I can get clearance for you I wondered if you'd mind dropping by the apartment and taking a look. In return I thought maybe, I could teach you to play?"
She sat on a brick stack and looked at Ruby.
"Now, are you gonna tell me?"

Practically bouncing she hopped over to Lex and asked, "Really?! You'd teach me? No one ever taught me anything other than...well you know, and I love it but I like other stuff too. And you knew! Thank you!"

She was messing with the amp when Lex asked her question. Her hands slowed a bit and she looked at Lex with reproachful eyes. She was torn. Lenz refused to talk to anyone else about, so sure that everyone would find out, label him an even bigger freak. But Lenz was her brother, genetically or not and she couldn't give away a secret.

"It's no big deal," She chuckled a bit uncomfortably, "I just...worry too much. But now I'll have good news to tell him," She smiled fiddling with the guitar.

"Ok sweetie, I gotta bounce but I'm around if you need me, 'k?" Lex assured her quickly, before impulsively pulling the younger girl into a hug and turning to leave.
"You're not in this alone anymore Rubes, I promise."

Getting Things Along

Alec was walking alongside Nine and Osemi, shaking his head in frustration. "That won't work, we've tried it. Let Max and I worry about that, you two just keep things running down here. Oh and whichever of you runs into him first, tell Deran I want to talk to him. Okay? Thanks guys," Alec said and clapped Nines on the shoulder as he was closest.

He began to walk up toward the command center, then slowed his pace when he spotted a familiar face.

"So what brings the amazing Alexis to the ever-so-scenic underground?" Alec asked, smiling.

Re: Getting Things Along

"I may have wanted to see someone..." She grinned and had to resist the urge to kiss him in front of the others. "Also need to talk to Max, I ran into a little trouble this morning." Lex frowned.

Re: Getting Things Along

Alec grinned at that. "Of course you did. I want to see me all the time but carrying mirrors are frowned upon."

He chuckled and went forward to kiss her temple, holding back the impulse to do more.

"Trouble?" Alec asked, his tone serious suddenly, "What kind?"

Re: Getting Things Along

"Sector cops, checking codes, I was carrying a guitar case at the time, so I played it as a band gimmick, got away with it, but I'll go under the laser in case." Lex grinned at him "Don't worry, once a good con, always a good con, but as I've said before it is cute when you worry."

Re: Getting Things Along

Alec laughed and rolled his eyes, asking, "What about when I'm not worried? Admit it, I'm adorable. Sincere eyes," He whispered conspiratorially, "Gets 'em everytime."

"Now what was the guitar case for? I figured you and Eden would be holed up at your place, annoying all the neighbors with it, not giving the residents here a free concert."

Re: Getting Things Along

She stuck her tongue out at him "It was for Ruby...and gets who every time?" She joked pouting at him. "And adorable is a little much, but that is a plan."

Re: Getting Things Along

"At little much? Now that hurts. And I can get anyone everytime," Alec joked.

"You're going to teach Rubes to play? Good plan, it may get the kid to relax. She loves to work. I'm not kidding. Makes me wonder what's wrong with her," Alec mused playfully.

Re: Getting Things Along

"Well I'm sorry I wounded you, sweetie." Lex grinned at him. "And that's what I thought, she needs something else. I gotta bounce, talk with Max, cya tomorrow? Or after the Luca thing tonight?"

Re: Getting Things Along

Alec's eyes narrowed at her last sentence and he said flatly, "The Luca thing."

Re: Getting Things Along

Lex stepped away from him. "The Luca thing, that you were fully aware I was doing, that I'd told you you weren't going to stop me doing." Her tone was dangerous, low.

Re: Getting Things Along

"I didn't say I was, but don't expect me to be happy about it," Alec said lowly as well.

"Whatever, you get to play with you knives and if you don't come back in one piece I get to kill Max. Fun for everyone," Alec smirked trying to mellow out the tone.

Re: Getting Things Along

"I'm not going in, I'll be outside, listening, making sure no one else gets to kill Max." Lex explained quietly "Nothing is going to happen to me, I'm not gonna die two days after I've, almost, got you where I want you."

Re: Getting Things Along

"Really?" Alec arched an eyebrow suggestively and asked, "And where exactly do you want me?"

Now that he was properly assured, he could afford to be playful now. Recon was easy, she could do that no problem. He just didn't like the idea of her in combat.

Re: Getting Things Along

Lex arched her back to bring herself closer to him, so she could whisper in his ear. "In front of all these people...that would be telling." She nipped his earlobe, and pulled away. "Gotta go!"

Re: Getting Things Along

"Tease," Alec whispered back and bent around to swiftly kiss her neck.

"Be careful. Remember if you come back a mess, I'm kicking Max's ass. Her life is in your hands here," He smirked playfully and began to walk backward toward where Osemi and Nines were waiting.

While Alec had talked they'd conjured up Deran and Glory. He called out to Lex before joining them, "Call me when it's done!"

Re: Getting Things Along

"Will do." She grinned and watched him go, tilting her head slightly as she did, before turning to talk with Max.
