Today was pretty awesome, actually. At least it's warm enough for a water gun fight.

I guess I was expecting to see more people burst by now, though. If my friend Scott were here, he'd have made at least twenty bucks by now.

[ooc: Yeah, I couldn't resist. In Stephen Stills' universe, people react a little differently when defeated in silly battle.]

I know they say you should picture people naked when you're nervous, but it's never been this effective for me before.

Er, does anyone know how long I've been gone?

[ooc: Stephen is back from his canon update to the end of Scott Pilgrim vol 6. He's in the town square, surrounded by naked people and feeling conflicted about it. Come rescue him.]

[Stephen's device is on his coffee table today when it turns on. He's sitting sideways on his sofa, knees propped up with a notebook balancing on them. It's a quiet, still moment. Not really too worthy of being recorded.

Resident cat Little Neil wanders across the back of the couch. He mews once, batting a paw at Stephen's pencil. He looks up, and quick as a flash Stephen has kitty!Neil on his back and in his arms, giving him a good squeeze even as he squirms to get away. Giddy comes over to investigate the noise and is scooped up as well. Stephen goes back to what he was doing, both cats squirming in his lap and making a lot of noise.

Giddy finally gives in and settles down to nap as the feed ends.]

it's tapas day at The Blue Light again. stop by if you can.

[ooc: Stephen will be available for giving/receiving hugs at The Blue Light today, as well as walking to and from work, or anyone who can catch him at home. COME AT HIM, YO.]

Cut for pics of Mark Webber in a hot tub )

looks like i got my cast off just in time.

[ooc: The picture was taken and added by accident. Whoops! Stephen is wandering around today checking out all the different pools. Please do come join or him or assume he's stumbled awkwardly into your secret naked tiems place. :-D]
26 April 2012 @ 02:06 pm
Two things, I guess. Anyone seen one of these before?

[Stephen holds a small and furry creature up to the camera, supporting it gently around its middle. His left arm's still in a cast, but he seems pretty used to it by now. The wallaby turns its head towards Stephen to nose at him curiously with its tiny snout.]

He showed up at the apartment and won't leave me alone. Plus, I think Nym might think it's lunch. She's been eying it all day.

[Stephen puts the animal back down in his lap, who seems quite content to curl up and go to sleep.]

Which is kinda the second thing, I guess. Er, Neil's been gone for a while now and-

Does anyone need a place to live? I'm out of the house a lot and none of the animals are any trouble. I could keep the place to myself, but I think it's good for people to stick together around here.

Let me know.

[ooc: Stephen is once again the Extinct Animal Whisperer, and has befriended an Eastern Hare Wallaby. He also has a spare room!]
15 April 2012 @ 02:46 pm
[Stephen has about an hour before he has to go on again, and is in desperate need of some liquid courage. Technically he's been informed to 'politely distance himself' from the first class passengers, so showing up at the ritzy bar on the top deck is probably breaking that rule. But he's in a suit for the performance, so he reckons he blends in alright. Besides, he needs a drink, and it was the closest.]

Scotch and soda, please. Quickly would be great.

[ooc: open action for patrons of the bar, be they first class themselves or just sneaking in. Anyone is welcome to bump into a young man lugging a double bass around all areas of the ship as well.]
12 April 2012 @ 03:38 pm
Neil's gone home.

He wasn't here when I came home from the hospital, but I thought maybe-

I checked the hall.

[There's somewhat of a long pause, before the feed suddenly cuts off.]
02 April 2012 @ 09:41 pm
so turns out last night got broadcast. obviously. i'm okay, still in the hospital.

i seriously hope this isn't becoming a theme with me.

[ooc: Follow up to this post where Stephen got the ever-loving snot beaten out of him by the Loaf of Cillians (new collective noun!) Action most welcome for the hospital!]
[Stephen's at work in the kitchen, chopping onions. There's music in the background, playing what sounds like a live version of an extremely energetic garage-rock tune. Not realising the video is on, he starts singing along.]

Well later she came with flowers in her arms
Said we can do it in the car
My brother owns it, the driver seat is made for love
And I said I'd rather grab a bite to eat
There is a diner down the street
Let's take it easy and join this lovely harmony

But I never ever wanted to
You would never ever let me to
I would but you must wait 'til it gets dark
So what is it that you want me to?
I can make it if it's good for you
So play me some from 1954
Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll

[He starts air-guitaring during the bridge, knocking the device with his elbow and shutting it off with a burst of static.]
10 March 2012 @ 10:19 am
So uh.

At 2:50 this afternoon I will have been in The City for a year. Minus the week I got sent home.

Anybody want to get really, really drunk?
12 February 2012 @ 04:06 pm
I do not recommend the candy hearts, in case anyone was thinking of eating one. These things have some serious after-effects.

[Filtered to Sephiroth]
I think I saw something from your past. Er, sorry about that, man.

[Filtered to Justin]
I meant what I said during that sex-ed curse thing. About being around if you needed to talk about stuff.
08 February 2012 @ 04:20 pm
So this 'eternal night' deal is kind of freaky. If Vin Diesel and Claudia Black show up, I'm getting nervous. I heard they're doing some awesome lantern stuff downtown, though. Anybody up for checking it out?

[ooc: action for anyone hanging around the downtown area tonight during the festival. Come bump into him!]
03 February 2012 @ 09:19 am
PG-13 shirtlessness behind the cut )
[Stephen is in his bathroom. Shirtless. And is willingly posting on the network. Yep, poor boy is cursed as well and is going to regret this come tomorrow.]

Anybody else feeling weirdly confident today? Not that I'm complaining. It feels good.

[He gives his reflection another grin before he yanks on a shirt. He's dropped the flannel today and has gone for one of the fitted t-shirts he usually wears as an undershirt. He flicks off the lights and his device.]
27 January 2012 @ 11:42 am
Hey. Guess it's one of those weekends again. Anyone from home - come find me, eh? It'll be nice to see everyone.

[ooc: Fourth waaaaaaaaaaaaaall! Come at him! Doubles, AUs, future, past, canon-mates, old friends, WHATEVER! He'll be at work at The Blue Light if people want to bump into him there.]
21 January 2012 @ 02:11 pm
[The Stephen that comes on the screen look pretty worried - more than he has in a while. He looks a little in danger of bolting every moment, but he stays where he is, glued to his chair.]

So there's this thing that I've been doing since I got here where I write letters to people at home. It's kind of lame and stupid and cheesy and if anyone found them I would pretty much have to bury myself in a hole for a month. But it's been almost a year since I first got here and I'm not writing as many as I used to and I'm worried that this means I'm giving up or I'm forgetting people back home and then I start thinking maybe this place isn't so bad, and it kinds of sends me into a panic. Because there's a part of me that maybe would be kind of fine with it if I stayed here.

[He takes a deep breath and sends another slightly panicked glance to the side.]

Also it bugs the crap out of me when Neil forgets that one of the fridge drawers is for fruit, and the other one is for vegetables. It's not a tough system to remember!

Oh god. Please no one talk to me today.

[He slams his hand hastily over the device to shut it off.]

[ooc: Stephen has been hit with I Cannot Tell a Lie today. HAVE AT HIM. Seriously. :-P]
18 January 2012 @ 02:51 pm
[Hey guys! Stephen Stills is all up in your device. He's seated in his room, an extremely serious look on his face. This is serious business, okay?]

So I'm not going to tell you guys where babies come from, or which bit goes in which other bit, because either you know that or you're too young to find out. I grew up in Southern Ontario in the 90s, and the sex ed curriculum there is pretty... thorough. But there's one thing no one ever talks about.

If you think you might be gay, don't just fucking ignore it and hope it'll go away. It's not going to change just because you're afraid your parents are going to freak out, or all your friends will ditch you. Or, you know, worse. And for god's sake, don't wait until you're 24 years old to work it out and realise you wasted four years of your life trying to convince yourself you're into a girl you clearly don't have any interest in.

I think maybe if someone'd told me that when I was 15, my life so far would have gone really differently.

[Stephen takes a second before he leans forward and shuts his device off.]
