Ryuk has been puzzling over yet another conundrum: this whole mushy thing called love. He knows Misa is hoopey over Light, even though Light seems only half interested in her. And he, Ryuk, knows there's something he likes about getting hugs from Misa, he's just not sure what it is.

So he decides to go to his source for explanations of human behavior. But this time, he decides to bring along a gift: while exploring the attic, he'd stuck his head into a trunk containing a box of jewelry, likely costume stuff, but he's not one to know the difference. And so he's roaming the Mansion, carrying with him a box containing what could pass as a sapphire necklace with two matching bracelets and a tiara set with more sapphires.

Pandora can be found on the porch - she's thoughtful tonight, thinking about the past, those loved ones she lost, those loved ones who betrayed her in all the worst ways.

She'll be glad to see a friend - and will be touched by his attention.

He tries to phase through the wall, but he can't do that while carrying the box, though he tries several times to get through anyway. Thus he has to come through a door.

"Hey, Pandora," he says. "I got a couple things for yah: found a little present up in the attic, and I also gotta question for yah. What's the big deal with this mushy love-stuff people get all excited about?"

Blink blink, and a startled laugh. Only Ryuk can actually pull that sort of reaction from Pandora.

"-- it seems to me like you've got quite the questions, tonight, friend," she replies, but she's fond, and it's visible.

"Yeah, it's somethin' that's been buggin' me since I got here," he says, lowering himself to crouch at her feet. "But there's Light and his girl Misa, who's buggy over him, even though he doesn't seem too interested in her, and there's that pale dude who always seems to have someone new he's gettin' cozy with. What's it all about?"

"Well," Pandora replies, and she might settle to sit next to Ryuk, though if he felt like putting his head on her lap, or something, she wouldn't mind. "I suppose it's about companionship."

"Heh, that's not somethin' shinigami like me really gotta feel for: I mean, we hang out together and we gamble and we've been known to snitch each other's Death Notes for the hell of it, but we don't really get chummy much," he says. "Not like humans do." But it's clearly something he's curious about.

"But I like gettin' hugs from Misa. Not sure what the deal is with that, but it's kinda cool: she ain't afraid of me, and that's... that's different and kinda nice."

Aaaaw. "I'm not afraid of you either," Pandora replies, and that might he -- a touch of jealousy, there, or envy, or we're not sure what. "-- do you want a hug?"

Date: 2010-07-13 05:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"A hug, maybe a snuggle..." he says, glancing at her lap, then looking up at her face. "Could I put my head in yer lap? I've seen Misa do that with Light and it looks kinda comfy."

Aaaaw, that's so cute. Pandora smiles a little, her lips twitch. "I am not as warm as a mortal," she says. "But I suppose you may, if you wish it."

He laughs a little, still that odd raspy cackle, but there's something almost humorous about it. "Neither am I: I'm a death god, no warmth here, either," he says. And turning onto his side, he puts his head on her knee with a gentleness that's at the same time alien and human.

She nods, and her hand reaches reflexively to rest on his head, to caress his hair. "Here," she says, softly. "Is that better?"

She's a bit undone - he's so endearing, at times, that she forgets how horrible his appearance can be.

"Mmm... that feels ...great," he says, weighing the word with an odd delight. This is clearly a new experience, yet he's enjoying it. "So why does cuddlin' an' stuff like that feel so good?" he asks, glancing up at her.

"I suppose it is because it helps with quenching a thirst for companionship," Pandora replies. "Humans are pack beasts."

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Yeah... shinigami aren't really big on companionship, or closeness of any kind," he says, shifting a little and nestling his head into her lap. "Or at least the ones like me. There's a second kind, a lot more human-like than me, but we don't have much to do with 'em."

She's still touching his hair, gently. "Most of your kind," she says softly, "but I think there might be an exception, hmmm?"

Date: 2010-07-25 06:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"What? Me?" he says, looking up at her. "I dunno... maybe I am, if you say so." He's being evasive, but then again, he can be a bit less than straightforward at times. But modest of a sudden?

Date: 2010-07-26 12:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
She lays her hand on his shoulder. "I think you are," she murmurs. "As I am, an exception in my kind, a loner, when they seek to be in covens, and yet making an exception, for you, Ryuk."

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"So vampires hang out in their own little bunches? Heh, my kind of shinigami don't do that," he says. "Not usually..." And he's as much an exception as she is...

"But some do?" Her tone is light, she's still leaning against him companionably.

"That *other* kind, the ones that are practically human frequently do: there's one here and I've heard 'um mumblin' in his sleep for his ladyfriend or somethin'," he says with a hint of something like a sneer. "My kind gotta be careful: we can't get so attached to someone that we use a Death Note to save the life of a human: I've seen it done and the results are messy." He pauses, pondering this. "But... I ain't heard we can't get friendly with someone besides a human..."

Date: 2010-08-04 03:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
Pandora grins a little. "I've been told that I was long longer human before..."

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
He grins. "Guess us spooky critters gotta stick together," he says, nestling his head into her lap. "Who else wouldn't get spooked by us?"

From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
Pandora chuckles amusedly. "Not your friend Light, at any rate." She's still stroking his hair tenderly.

Date: 2010-08-19 06:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Yeah, Light can be a total spoil-sport. He's got a cute girl crazy over him an' he just about ignores her." He snuggles closer, as if to let her know he wouldn't ignore her, even if he can't quite get his spiky-haired head around the idea.

Having drunk from Light, Pandora has a bit of perspective on the matter. Still leisurely stroking Ryuk's hair, she murmurs, "Hmmm... in this case, it's a bit more complicated than that..."

Date: 2010-08-20 03:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Ohhh?" he asks, genuinely curious, and wondering if it is somehow linked to this odd warmth he's feeling within his usually cool self, as he lies here with his head in her lap.

Date: 2010-08-21 05:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
"Hmmm... tell me, Ryuk, would you say that you've sometimes allowed yourself to play with mortals, as one does with pets?"

Date: 2010-08-21 07:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
He laughs a little. "Well, in some ways, Light was my human pet, though the other shinigami used to joke about me being Light's pet. Maybe we were each other's pet somehow."

Date: 2010-08-21 07:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
Pandora chuckles. "And you would certainly agree with me that Light saw himself as more than human, would you not?"

That's pretty much how I saw it all!

He laughs out loud. "Damn right he did: but no amount a' thinkin' that could change what he was. I used t' wonder if he could pull it off, but nope, didn't happen." He doesn't seem too disappointed in the results, though he could have made his peace with the situation, if things like him can do that.

Date: 2010-08-22 04:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
"That's right," she replies, smiling. "So it's not impossible that the girl is just like a pet... to him. And not all pets are kept for love, you know."

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Heh, I guess she's a damn cute pet then, not that I really get humans and their ideas of beauty. She can't be completely useless if she's hugged me a few times," he says, grinning.

Date: 2010-08-24 05:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
"No, certainly," Pandora replies quietly. "I'm sure Light had a use for her."

Date: 2010-08-25 04:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Oh, yeah: she'd made a deal with a shinigami to gain the ability to see the names and the dates of death of the humans around her, and while he wouldn't make the same deal with me, he used her for that ability," he says. "Wish he'd let her have a little fun with her in return, but that never happened. What a boring jerk..."

Date: 2010-08-25 05:42 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
"Calculating, to be more precise. One of his least attractive traits, which is a pity. The boy is brilliant." Pandora shakes her head and leans over to look at Ryuk's face. "I hope you don't find me boring?"

"You, nah, not at all, Pandora," he says, snuggling his head into her lap. "Yer the definition of interesting."

She leans forward a touch and touchs his hair, traces the contour of his ear delicately, with deathly cold fingers.

"Am I, now? Are you saying I aught to be in the dictionary?" The notion amuses her quite a bit.

"They oughta at least put yer picture in there," he says, grinning. "Oh... can yah have yer picture taken? Whattabout th' mirror thing...?" He's curious of course...
From: [identity profile] pandora-antioch.livejournal.com
"I avoid such things, one way or other," Pandora replies. "Photographic evidence of my mortality would be just as dangerous as 'the mirror thing', as you put it, interfering with the process..."
