Dardanius Dubois
So very macho

Dardanius had gone into the theatre for the only reason he had ever gone into the theatre: he was looking for Marissa. It was quiet when he entered, but he could see something on the stage. Until he was closer he couldn't tell if it was a prop or a person, so he thought he'd better check it out in case it was a person who had collapsed or something equally dramatic.

As he came to the stage, however, he could tell it was a person; an Emmett-shaped person. Before Danny could open his mouth to ask if the fourth year was in any trouble, Emmett saw him and hurried to sit up. “Hey there,” he said, and Dardanius assumed from his composure and tone of voice that he was at least physically fine. He wasn't going to make judgments on the mental health of someone lying on their own staring at the rafters.

“Merlin, I thought someone had passed out up there,” Danny told him, pointing at the stage. Shaking his head, he shoved his hands into the pockets of his bootcut jeans (which he was wearing with some very nice, dark green, dragon hide boots he’d bought over midterm, and a fuchsia sweater) and waited for his friend to explain himself. Which he did, and then Danny shook his head again.

“No, Emmett, I do not want to run lines with you.” He liked Emmett, but there was nothing he would like to do less than repeat inane scripted dialogue again and again. “But you’re not wrong,” he added good-naturedly, looking up at the fellow Lyra with a grin. “You are a mess.”

      • I'm sensing some sarcasm there. - Emmett, Sat Feb 25 17:36
        Emmett smiled despite his own dramatics. Danny was a good dude. Definitely his best male friend. (He didn’t think he had a girl he could call his best female friend, unless he counted Marissa but... more
        • Whatever gave you that impression? - Dardanius, Mon Feb 27 10:01
          Emmett asked Danny what he was doing in the theatre. It was a fair question; for someone who wasn't interested in theatre (aside from being in the audience; he was happy to be looking at the stage,... more
          • Just a hunch. - Emmett, Mon Mar 6 02:12
            “I was just looking for Marissa.” Oh. Emmett paused. A part of him instinctively wanted to be jealous and accusatory, but he less than politely told that part of himself to cram it. For one thing,... more
            • Gut Feeling - Danny, Mon Mar 6 15:14
              The way Emmett answered that he hadn’t seen Marissa suggested to Danny that the fourth year had been in the theatre for a substantial part of the day. He might have been interpreting it incorrectly,... more
