[ The video zooms in to one James Rhodes, wearing his dress blues and sitting at the bar -- yes, again -- with one elbow propped up and his head in his hand, the other cradling a beer.

He doesn't look happy.

There's a voice comming from off-screen:
] This fine specimen of man is Col. James Rhodes and he has good reason to be in the bar today. Guess what? His best friend, Tony Stark, has left the City and he's drowning his sorrows in alcohol. Healthy coping mechanisms.

[ Rhodey's mouth twists, something angry and bitter in his expression, but his voice is still mostly even when he speaks. ]

I seriously don't need the running commentary, man.

[ ooc; So. Tony's gone and Rhodey is getting drunk. Italics are some NPC commentator. Come buy him a drink and cheer him up or join him in his misery. ]

[ Rhodey's leaning against the bar, paying for his beer and giving the bartender a nod and a smile. ] Thanks. And you're at least an eight.

[ A beat. ] I have no idea why I just said that.

[ Come talk to him, over the network or at the bar, get rated, you know you want to :3 ]

Are we all done with that? Cowboy hats don't really suit me.

I liked the saloon, though, that was a nice touch.

[ Rhodes has picked up a cat. One that's hissing at him, granted, but he's holding it up with one hand and scratching its ears with the other, unconcerned. He's also clearly mid-sentence when the device clicks on. ] — went home. And made me CEO, what did he think.

[ A sigh, and he doesn't say anything for a moment; the cat hisses again and swats at him. ] Guess I might as well take you along, get you fed a little.

[ And then he notices that his device is on. Rather than immediately turning it off, though, he turns to it. ] Tony Stark's left the City. Howard, Rogers, do you have a moment?

[ And then it clicks off. ]

[ The device clicks on; and Rhodey's voice is terse when he speaks: ]

Tony, if this is somehow your idea, warn me next time, would you?

Hazuki Mina has something that belongs to you. Might mean me, actually.

[ — and it's turned off again, though a little later, it starts again, this time a video feed: the angle is so that it only shows movement on the ground, two people stepping around one another but eventually, Rhodey ends up on the ground, a knife against his throat, clearly visible.

And then the woman holding the knife kisses him — before punching him and leaving.
[ the ship's sinking and Rhodey's been frantically trying to fix things, but it's no use so now he's on deck to help with evacuations because he might not be able to do his job right now, but that doesn't mean he can't still work.

which is why he's not too far away when he sees the beams coming down, directly to where one Mr Tony Stark is standing, and the next thing he knows, he's moving to push the other man out of the way—
] Watch out, Mr Stark!

[ — only to get hit by the beams himself, pushed beyond the railings and into the water. ]

[ ooc; and so, Rhodey drowns. No replies, because, well. He drowned. I'll go sob quietly now, mkay. ]

[ Someone jostled the device and the video clicks on, showing: a bar, James Rhodes knocking back a shot and Tony Stark waggling his eyebrows at a woman who doesn't look too amused by whatever comment he'd just been making before the video started.

Rhodey puts a hand on Tony's arm, though whether to hold Tony back or to steady himself— who knows.
] Ignore him, ma'am, he's always like that. Now, what I was saying is— I miss it, y'know. The military. Knowing that each one of those guys had my back; it's not the same here.

I bet these gorgeous ladies wouldn't mind having your back, Rhodey, if that's what you're so afraid of. There, problem solved!

[ ooc; because in case of feels, alcohol. ]

Tony. Tony. Was this some awful prank? If so, well-played, man, I've already taken two showers and still haven't gotten the smell off.

Seriously, how did you do that?

[ p a u s e ] Or maybe I'm giving you too much credit and it's a curse, in which case, great.

Are we all done searching for the end of the rainbow?

Out of sheer curiosity: Did anyone actually find anything, or was that just another wild goose chase?

That aside. Ms Pond, if you and your companion try and break into Mr Stark's lab again, I'll resort to more drastic measures than those involving Dummy and the fire extinguisher. Same goes for anyone else who has the bright idea of trying to sneak into places they have no business being in, mystery and excitement and detecting detective stuff [ his voice makes it clear that's a quote and equally clear what he thinks of it ] notwithstanding. Is that clear?

If I ever see a giant sandworm again, it'll be too soon.

[ filtered to Tony ]

How're you holding up, man? Please tell me you don't need me to work tomorrow, I just wanna shower and then sleep for 24 hours.
18 February 2012 @ 07:05 pm
If anyone needs an airlift to the safe zone, let me know. Or help with the sandworms. Turns out they don't like bullets very much.
27 January 2012 @ 09:49 pm
Hey Tony, are we giving out visitor's passes?

Seriously, this place wasn't always this busy, was it?

[ ooc; Anything goes ~ ]

[ The video's originating from Rhodey's device, sure, but it shows a young boy man looking nothing at all like Rhodey; and also with considerably more hair: ]

This looks nothing like me when I was this age. Nothing. [ Frowning ] Does this body belong to anyone, or can I shave off all this hair?

Tony, if you laugh, just remember that I can kill you in your sleep.
