I'm not sure you want to talk this way, Basch. It does have the advantage of not expecting silence to be filled smoothly, or requiring an instant reply, so there is that. I did not expect you would be in the same . . . wing? Building? Injuries should not destroy my vocabulary so utterly.

The brotherhood are good people. I can't say that voting to bring me here is a good thing, but at least they saw some value in it. Seeking to bring the best of people has a merit, even when that person may be myself. It is still troubling that the primary question seemed to be why I did not ask for help more than why I was such an idiot and for so long. If you wish to define the boundaries where I remain, I am at your service, and they will surely listen to you.

You looked good, when I saw you.

I do get the impression, brother, that this place is filled with people who were too...headstrong, or idealistic or foolhardy or whatever else you'd like to call it to seek help. If there's nothing else, they seem to know, it IS regret and finding channels towards it.

They do seem to listen, yes. And against what convention tells me, I AM pleased that you are here. It will take some time, but we're not finished by far.

I am not certain yet, but I doubt when I am finished, when I have passed through what they term as a process, that we will have found some sort of a ground to stand on. I can't deny that once it has had time to settle in, my feelings will not shift a bit, but they will never shift so far as you must fear to ask me that.

No stopping, until we have a resolution, I can swear that much, though I've nothing much to swear upon these days.

And as have I. So have we all, I think. It does get better, I'm lead to understand. And ah, have YOU, since I ought to check as well.

Something between us on which we agree, that we can move forward from, together. And is that right, just yet, to swear by them? We've only lately met, I'm not sure how things stand in that particular pecking order.

And you have much to offer in and of yourself. I'd not have you selling yourself too short just yet.

But IS it only the suit? I'd like to think something was left inside. And that could be arranged easily enough.

But separated from the things that made him so? Forgive me if my hope is too much for you, but would it not be better to make an attempt, at least.

It is, at that. And what if I would give it to you?

That IS what I had thought this conversation was leading up towards, yes.

Ah if I knew how to control that, I would consider it. I'm told it's nothing simple as all that. Nor, I think, should it be.

Ah. Well. Here, and around. I do believe that covers a great deal of it. Not bleeding, if that could particularly be helped from time to time. I realize that is difficult, but...

Is IS strange, is it not? Shall we find our truce or not? I think, perhaps, some things are new to speak of, but your presence is the best that I might have hoped for now you're with us, now you're yours again.

Deceptively simple seeming, I believe. I do not expect it will be easy, but it IS the worthy thing.

That sounds about right, from what I know of him. How are they doing now that you've been here? The medic's come through, but has a doctor?

There we are. A fine place to begin with.

You might be surprised at the extent some DO. Since I'm supposed to technically be looking over all of that, how's it going?

mrbarrow: (teeea)
From: [personal profile] mrbarrow
Not QUITE a doctor, I'm afraid. Corpsman, technically. Medic. Corporal but I'm detached these days.

Well enough. But really, if you've got a problem, I've technically just finished up supply counting. Or I've roped others into it.

That WOULD be the dehydration but we needn't keep that as a problem if you'd be willing for a bit of a faster fix. For some odd reason, I've been entrusted with sticking needles and tubes into your veins to funnel some through faster. I could find something in the way of medication for the pain as well, if that would help.

Or the sign I managed not to die. Depending.

I would prefer it if that would be...not a problem. And rather more for poking holes into your arm. It's not exactly terrible, but a bit unpleasant, that bit.

And well, you'd be a bit tired, dizzy, things will feel a little warm at first.

Somehow THAT doesn't surprise me very much, all things considered. Aren't officers usually awful patients?

That would be very good news, actually. A lot less rooting around for anything useful anyway.

Oh I know people JUST like that. Nothing about how nethicite actually works. They wouldn't sanction the use back then. Something about the Prime Minister not approving or...I can probably find the article online somewhere. It was...odd.

This IS my job and it's one I'm happy to do. No need to thank me.
