Dardanius Dubois
You called?
Thu Jan 26, 2017 15:48

After a good breakfast of spinach and mushroom omelette, Dardanius had the sort of energy that filled its host with a sense of great potential; it was definitely a day to get things done. He had a morning free of classes, so the fifth year looked to his oft-neglected homework schedule to identify a task suitable for accomplishment. There was an especially gruelling potions assignment he had been working on, but he needed a particular textbook before he could continue with it further. He had made his way directly to the library, to discover that the only two copies in school were already out on loan to other students. Before he went to Pearl Street to procure a copy, Danny had asked which students had rented the books.

That was why he pushed open the door to the theatre, a place Danny rarely frequented unless it was to watch a show, to find Marissa - the person he had been seeking - standing on a table. As if that were normal. “Hey,” she said in greeting. “Do you think I’m too tall if I stand on the table? Or does it look okay? Pretend there are three girls sitting in the chairs around the table.”

“Uh, too tall for what?” he asked, trekking between the seats towards the stage and casually tossing his bag onto the floor when he reached the front row. As he didn’t have class, he had dispensed with his robes, leaving them in his dormitory. Therefore his salmon pink polo and stone-coloured jeans were fully visible. He assumed Marissa’s pose and query were to do with the musical performance. He was in Lyra, so even though he wasn’t personally involved with the show, he could tell when rehearsals began; his housemates became even more dramatic and obnoxious than usual. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Dardanius looked up at Marissa on the stage. “You are not too tall to be feeding a giraffe,” he clarified, his face straight and his delivery deadpan, despite the obvious hilarity of his joke. He settled himself into a plush red seat on the front row. “But I dunno why you’d need three other girls to do that.”

“Toladaeri told me you have the book I need,” he explained his presence to her, “some other person said you were here. Hence,” he gestured to himself in the seat, figuring that fully explained the scenario. He needn’t really have added the part about another student telling him that she was there - it would have been the first place he would have looked for her, anyway. “I was going to do my potions assignment, but,” he looked critically at the stage set-up again, giving a reasonable impression of someone about to say something sensible, “I guess if you need me to watch while you dance on a table then I could make that sacrifice.” He grinned.

  • Holding Out for a Hero - Marissa Kendrick, Mon Jan 23 18:20
    Marissa sighed and leaned against the chair she’d dragged onstage. They were in the throes of Footloose rehearsals, and somehow, Marissa and Nick had ended up doing choreography. She wasn’t... more
    • You called? - Dardanius Dubois, Thu Jan 26 15:48
      • Someone is full of himself. - Marissa, Sun Jan 29 01:49
        “Like, does it make the visual look weird?” Marissa realized she was talking to Danny, who despite being a Lyra, wasn’t exactly the most useful when it came to blocking. He didn’t do shows or... more
        • Hey kettle, it's the pot calling - Dardanius, Tue Jan 31 06:52
          Of course Marissa was more interesting than potions homework, that didn't exactly need to be clarified. On the other hand, Danny did need to do his potions assignment to obtain a passing grade, he... more
          • I think I'll just let it ring - Marissa, Tue Jan 31 14:25
            She flashed Danny a very bright smile when he agreed to stay. She knew he would. Potions could be interesting, but Marissa thought that only applied if they were in class with Rob. Danny may not have ... more
            • Rude. - Danny, Wed Feb 1 06:55
              Since even Marissa was calling the musical stupid, Danny wondered how she expected him to be interested. He did his best to listen to her synopsis of the plot, and only zoned out a couple of times.... more
              • You don't really think I'm rude - Marissa, Thu Feb 2 19:04
                Marissa started thinking of other shows she would rather do than Footloose . The problem, which Garen always pointed out to her, was that her desires weren’t school appropriate. Marissa liked shows... more
                • That depends on your next post - Danny, Fri Feb 3 06:55
                  For just a moment it seemed as though Marissa was going to interpret his comment they way it had been intended, vis-à-vis stage kissing. But then she sat up, and said “Have you ever- wait, you’ve... more
                  • I'll wait and see how you feel - Marissa, Fri Feb 3 12:36
                    She waited for Danny to answer. It was almost suspenseful. There was no way that Danny hadn’t kissed anyone before. They were teenagers at a small school, though. If he had, wouldn’t she have heard... more
                    • Aren't you the gentleman - Danny, Fri Feb 3 15:16
                      Marissa scooted a little closer, and Danny tried not to be too concerned by her proximity. He still hadn’t forgotten that time in DADA. He vaguely wondered whether she might have teased him in that... more
                      • I have manners - Marissa, Sat Feb 4 11:32
                        Marissa did think Danny was sweet. He was great, really. She could always trust Danny for some kind of laugh. They teased and flirted all the time. He really was one of her best friends at RMI. Rose, ... more
                        • You are a rare breed - Danny, Sat Feb 4 14:13
                          As Danny finished his explanation, he felt that Marissa was being surprisingly understanding. No wait, that wasn't fair; her being understanding was completely within her character. Danny was aware... more
                          • I think we're both pretty unique - Marissa, Sat Feb 4 15:48
                            It didn’t look like Danny was going to kiss her, and Marissa couldn’t help but be disappointed by that. She wasn’t the type of person to push someone if they said no; it wasn’t her style. People just ... more
                            • Just like everybody else - Danny, Sat Feb 4 17:01
                              He hadn’t even realised that he wanted to have this conversation with someone, but now that it had happened, Danny was glad about it. He didn’t think his kissing habits, or lack thereof, would ever... more
