Maxwell seemed to be inadvertently doing everything to keep Zeb from being able to just have a nice conversation with him. But he couldn't say so without appearing rude.

"Erm, yes, you could come with us if you so desire," Zeb said, making a careful effort to keep his voice neutral. Though considering how drunk the Librarian seemed to be, he might not have needed to bother.

((By the way, I referenced Time Lords in the Rose Potter mission; is it okay if I have Zeb mention he once met the Librarian?))

  • "You should meet them!"SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 15:09
    "Making friends is fun!" said Maxwell, nodding his head sagely. "Just look at me and my buddy Zeb over here. When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that I'd find someone cool to hang with! Right, ... more

      • "I did not know there was a pool here."Desdendelle, Sat Feb 28 17:27
        The Librarian looked from Zeb to Maxwell, an amused glint in his eyes. “I shall go and join my partner. There are some questions that need to be asked.” Waving cheerfully, he entered the pub and made ... more
        • Zeb breathed a sigh of relief.Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 19:21
          Thank you, he thought after the Librarian. He turned to Maxwell, grinning broadly. "So... shall we go find that pool?" ((Awesome! Thanks! And that reminds me, my upcoming Time Lord agent is probably... more
          • ((But of course.))Desdendelle, Sat Feb 28 20:36
            ((I'm always up for co-writes, assuming writer's block doesn't hold me in its evil clutches. It seems that interludes are less affected by it, however.))
          • "Of course. Right this way!"SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 20:23
            Maxwell started walking down the hallway, humming a little tune to himself. He continued for a while and turned to the Luxray beside him. "Say, Zeb... Can I ask you a personal question? OK, not sure... more
            • "Uh..."Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 20:43
              Zeb swallowed, his heart hammering in his chest. "Y-yes?" ((I've sent a test email!))
              • "All righty then."SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 21:13
                Maxwell stopped walking and looked at Zeb in the eyes. "Okay. So. Well, let's not beat around the bush: you're a really nice-looking dude. I mean, look at that posture! That mane! Those eyes! You're... more
                • Zeb thought his heart might burst.Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 21:25
                  "N-no, not at all!" he said, stepping a little closer to Maxwell. "Go on." ((Ah, that would explain why I was getting error messages.))
                  • "You don't mind? Here goes."SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 21:32
                    "So. As I was saying, you're a pretty handsome 'mon. Probably a very gentlemanly guy as well. Right. Now, how do I put this..." Maxwell cleared his throat. "D'you know where I can find a nice lady... more
                    • "O-oh..."Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 21:42
                      Zeb's heart was no longer bursting; it had just shattered into a million pieces. He wanted to go back to his RC and curl up in bed and mentally berate himself for being so stupid as to get his hopes... more
                      • "What, going back already?"SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 21:58
                        "Aww, that sucks. Oh well. Lead on, man." Maxwell happily fell into step beside Zeb. "And thanks for your advice. I'll be sure to follow up on that. Oh yeah, one last thing: what's up with your face? ... more
                        • "Or something," Zeb muttered.Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 22:10
                          He felt his tail droop, dragging on the ground behind him. Just my luck, he thought. Like blowing up wasn't bad enough on its own... He sighed heavily. "It's nothing, Maxwell," he said gloomily.... more
                          • "Wanna tell me about it?"SeaTurtle, Sat Feb 28 22:27
                            "It's what friends do, right? Be there for each other? 'Cause if there's anything I can do to help, I'll do it! And that's a promise!"
                            • "Not... not particularly..."Iximaz, Sat Feb 28 22:31
                              "I don't think there's really anything you can do." Zeb peered through the walls. "Rudi's is just around this corner," he said, half-relieved and half... he didn't know what.
