closed; heartbreak and ice cream

Who: Doppel!Arnold, Arnold & Julien & Doppel!Julien............possibly Liam lol
What: Bad movies, ice cream, and possibly hugging. Also dramatic weeping. Because that is what you do.
When: Sometime before statue smashing goes on
Where: The Benedict House

For once, both Arnold and Benedict are miserable together. Julien seemed very upset the last time he hung up, and this makes them both fret, even if Benedict's main source of distress is his pull back to the Neuschwanstein Castle, which he really, really does not like. Especially not when they are also somewhat on the outs with Liam.

"I don't want to go back."

"I know man, I know. But you'll only get more miserable if you stay."

"But Liam... and Julien..."

"Julien said you could maybe look for his dopple? That might help, I know you're lonely there."

"I... I guess... but not yet. I don't want to go yet. Can we... maybe put a movie on?"

"Guess so. Get the ice cream out?"

"The Choc Chip Dip?"

"Yeah."

"I'm calling you Caius. You took the same ancient history classes as me, you know why." Julien came from Julius, Cesar was too obvious, Gaius had been one of his other names. And besides, Anghel had sometimes called Yuuya "Cain" but no one wanted to name anyone that.

Julien's double cast another few glances over his shoulder, but knew now that Julien would catch him and bear him back down if he took off. 'Caius' just didn't have a passion for flight. He muttered something softly. "Nerd."

"Damn right. Remember, you come here, you get petted as much as you like, and Arnold can come back with you to that castle you like so much." With 'Caius' being so passive it's an effort to make him do anything, but it's a break from worrying about mushrooms.

The... other guy stopped on the porch, his feathers pulling closer to his body in an 'expression' of apprehension. "It'll be noisy."

"C'est la vie. It's not for long." A heartless Julien hops onto his double's back and immediately has to do his best to banish a sudden very bad idea that, from his shiver, Caius has too. Anyway he rings the doorbell and hops back down, noting with disgust that his double is better at maintaining his tail. "You can be a good distraction."

Julien knows it's not rational but he doesn't perceive his double as looking much like him at all. He's a giant pigeon, and Julien's image of himself is distorted but not that. Of course Caius looks exactly like Julien except that he isn't wearing anything, his feathers are neater, and he has different body language. Very subdued body language. He doesn't look Arnold in the eye, his feathers are held slicked, his head and tail are down.

"Gi suilon! Yeah, this is Caius, I thought I'd bring him by." His own tail up and his body nearly upright, Julien nudges his double, who makes a very deep voiced hrrrm-ing pigeon noise.

Caius flinches at the shout, but reluctantly comes in. Julien nods at Benedict. Having a contrast here makes it much more evident that Julien keeps his feathers fluffed somewhat, and moves and gestures and makes the effort to connect to people. Now he pushes past, standing tall enough to be on level with either Arnold.

"Be nice, he's shy and doesn't really like noise. Give him space." He's more brusque towards his double than he would be for most people, but he doesn't want to bully a bird, much. "Can you water down some Gatorade? We had to do some flying."

Addressing the floor, Caius says something almost too quiet to catch. "Strawberries."

Either Julien's voice must sound strange to changed hearing. Instead of producing his voice in his throat it's down in his chest, where his lungs branch out, and a sound is made by either branch and blended. To human ears it sound human, maybe a little richer, but that's a carefully refined performance.

Caius makes no response. After a pause Julien ventures, "Strawberries to eat. That's less trouble, and it's not two things to drink at once. Right?" He's answered with a jerky, awkward nod, and shrugs a wing as he looks back at the Arnolds. "Maybe later. I don't think he's eating enough out at that castle. What are you guys watching?"

Bean bags are just about the easiest 'furniture' for an enormous bird to use. At Julien's urging Caius takes over one, laying his chest over it and making it utterly disappear from view. The anxious cast to his feathers makes him look smaller than Julien but he's still big.

"C'mon, those are cheesy gold! The first two anyway. After that... oh, dear." He preens his double's crest in a businesslike way and looks at Benedict. Julien's aware that he'll dominate the conversation if allowed, so he'll remove himself. "I'm going to see if Arnold needs help. You guys stay here. Be nice!"

Caius turns his head to look after him, then keeps turning it until his beak is pointed over his own back to stare with a round blue eye at Benedict, who might hear the very faint noise he makes in his chest. "Suil?"
espigeonage: (☋Longing to listen to you talk)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-03-31 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
Caius hesitates, and does that awkward nod, and then pauses again, some of the blue-dyed feathers on the back of his neck rising and ruffling.

He's a little louder now, though unlike Julien he barely opens his beak. "But I can't... it's... spoons. They're hard."
espigeonage: (☋And places I've been)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-03-31 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
Caius's head droops. "Messy. Birds... don't eat ice cream."

Head lowered, he glances at Benedict. "You could... no."
espigeonage: (༄From falling into depression again)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-03-31 05:46 am (UTC)(link)
He tries to remember if he's had any ice cream since growing a beak. Probably not. He remembers liking it, or Julien liking it, anyway. "I don't have the right kind of mouth, anymore. Or I never did..."

Caius gapes his beak. Closes it again. It's a stupid thing to ask. Maybe he should anyway. Says "Feed me?"
espigeonage: (ЖI wish I wasn't afraid that some spirit)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-03-31 12:07 pm (UTC)(link)
He'd had some dairy before and it had worked fine, right? Or Julien had? Caius gapes his beak again. It would be a begging-baby-bird gesture if he'd tipped his head back.
espigeonage: (ЖI wish I wasn't afraid that some spirit)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-03-31 04:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Caius swallows the spoonful and considers. It's very sweet, sweeter than he generally likes things. It's probably bad for him - it's definitely bad for him. If some gets on his feathers it will be a pain trying to get it out.

On the other hand, he's really big, and he's hungry. He opens his beak again.
espigeonage: (ЖWho'd help me not be self conscious)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-04-01 01:47 am (UTC)(link)
"Mmm." He then stops and blinks hard, inner eyelids closed. Birds don't express pain very clearly, especially pigeons. After a moment he says "Brain freeze. 's enough."
espigeonage: (Ѧfrom this sadness)

[personal profile] espigeonage 2015-04-01 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
"'Kay." Caius settles, feathers finally starting to puff. He wants those strawberries, or other food; he really has been eating lightly for a while, and swallowing something distracts a little from the nagging, annoying sense that he has to go back now right now.

"Pet me."

There is a pause, and Caius looks at him again, animal-blank. Being petted is demeaning, but it feels good, and when you turn into an animal you have to be the animal.

"Pet me."
