death_kl0wn: (Live Action)
[personal profile] death_kl0wn
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer. Even the darkness seems deeper than usual. Ryuk has been been taking advantage of the shadows to lurk and watch people going about their business, but there are two people in particular he's been wanting to see, the snarky lady who finds him amusing and the disheveled detective whom he observed for so long. And so, he'll go in search of them, gliding along the walls and perching on tops of high shelves and bookcases or other tall bits of furniture to take in the room before gliding off on the hunt...

Title nicked from "This is Halloween" from the "Nightmare Before Christmas" soundtrack. Looking specifically for L and for Ines, but if anyone wants a spooky shinigami, feel free to tap the typist!

L was going about his business of collecting further candy from the plothole when he spots movement in the corner of his eye, glances, and is effectively startled.

He may be more or less allied to Ryuk, he's still not used to this.

"Hello, shinigami."

Ryuk comes down from the knife rack he'd been perched on and hovers closer, inspecting any sweets L might have acquired, looking to see if there's any apple-flavored ones.

"Hiya, L, how's the detecting going?" he asks.

"As it should," L replies slowly. "How are you, shinigami?"

"Boooorred," Ryuk groans. "Ever since I ditched those *losers* I was drummin' for. I'd almost go back to that cheap pair of wannabes, but I dunno what'd be worse, them or bein' bored."

"And why is it," L asks lightly, eyes on a lollipop which he is delicately unwrapping, "that you would consider a return, if you dislike these people so much, shinigami?"

"Because I'm booooored to death," Ryuk grumbles, laying himself flat on a countertop, spidery arm and leg dangling toward the floor.

Oh, Ryuk, we love you lots.

"Would you care for a little.... challenge, then, shinigami?"

L is looking into his pocket.

Those *might* be apple toffees he's reaching for.

I'm thinking he might challenge Ryuk to bug the SAngel office with "steampunk" bugs. Think that could be possible? It would explain why L is able to listen in to the meeting without being there....

Ryuk lifts his head. "Would I? I'm up for most anything, to break up the boring *quiet* here," he says, watching L search through his pocket. "What'd yah have in mind??"

Heeeee, I'm always up for steampunk anything, and it would be a *perfect* way for L to keep tabs on ye SA.

"I need you to plant something in Tsuzuki and Mia's office," L tells Ryuk. "Something small and difficult to detect. It's very rare, so it must be impossible for them to find."

"Heh, what is it? If I can find a small enough crack in a ceiling moulding or a light fixture or something, I could wedge it in that," Ryuk says, thinking of all the possible hiding places too high up for people to find it, whatever it is.

L holds the item up daintily - it's an electret microphone, tiny, and wired to a confidential frequency, of course. It took him a while to salvage components to come up with this tiny thing, months, maybe a year, so he seems loath to part with it.

"This," he says, simply.

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
Ryuk hovers in closer, tilting his head as he eyes the thing. "Ooh, some kind 've spy thingum? I can plant that in a lamp. No one'll suspect anything, I bet," he says, grinning.

"Make sure that old bat can't find it, or see you," L adds, and he does of course mean Genkai. "She's a tricky one."

"The tough ol' granny with the pink hair? I'll keep an eye out for her," he says. Then an idea crosses his mind and his head pops up. "Oooh! There's a ventilation grate thingy with a little trap on it: I can stick it in there." Meaning one of those ornate grates seen in the ceilings of some Victorian-style houses, designed to vent the warmth of the lower room into the one above (typist has fond childhood memories of listening through one of these in her maternal grandmother's house).

L nods, and offers Ryuk an apple-based piece of hard candy.

"That's my boy."

Date: 2014-01-15 06:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Yum! You got good taste, L," Ryuk says, taking the candy, then sniffing it with delight before pocketing it. "I'll save that for later: I got a bug to plant first."

From: [identity profile] justiceis-blue.livejournal.com
"Plant away, shinigami, plant away...."

L looks already like he's moved on to something else.

FTB? We should probably follow-up soon?

FTB, and shall I send Ryuk to the drops mingler??

By all means! :-) He might talk to Ines, perhaps? She already has a tag, here: http://carpe-ho-ras.livejournal.com/160391.html?thread=38769543#t38769543 !

Well, Ines is literally seething from her encounter with the Warden.

The nerve of him! Acting like it was no big deal!

She wishes she could break something, or someone. In Paris she might have gone to a bouge. Hired a whore. Done things to her.

She can't do that to Zillah, though - she likes her well enough.

Hence the broken vase in the common room.

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"That vase done yah wrong?" a raspy voice asks from a chandelier, and if she looks up, she'll find that skinny, clownish-looking death god, grinning down at her. "Hiyah, Ines."

Date: 2013-10-27 05:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-postal-ines.livejournal.com
"You!" Ines calls back. "You shouldn't have told me."

Yes, she's being unfair, we know.

Date: 2013-10-30 03:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Shouldn't've told yah what? About the Warden and what he gets himself into?" Ryuk asks, with really fake innocence. "You ast me to keep an eye on him and what was up to, an' tell you about it. Only told yah what I knew."

"You should have got me evidence," Ines replies aggressively. "He says he's not the father!"

Date: 2013-11-25 05:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Well, for a guy who ain't the kid's father, he sure looked in a lot on the kid's other father... or whatever yah call 'um," Ryuk observes.

From: [identity profile] x-postal-ines.livejournal.com
"Well that's all well and good," she replies, "but that's not bulletproof, is it?"

From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Heh, true. Unless there's some scientist here who could run a paternity test, figure out who's the other dad," Ryuk says, cribbing what he knows from talk show madness, though he has no idea how it's done (or that the tech at the Mansion is limited to a blood type test).

Date: 2013-12-04 05:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-postal-ines.livejournal.com
A beat. She looks at him.

"Fine. Find me that scientist, Ryuk, and I'll forgive you."

A grin, feline and devious.

"And we'll be friends forever and ever."

"You got it, Ines: I'll scare someone up," Ryuk says, holding up one hand as if swearing an oath (would a shinigami swear on his Death Note, one wonders...). "I promise yah."

Date: 2013-12-15 11:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-postal-ines.livejournal.com
She smiles, looks a little bit more sweet, and says, "Oh, Ryuk, you know how to talk to a woman, my darling."

Date: 2013-12-18 06:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] death-kl0wn.livejournal.com
"Heh-heh, glad to hear I learned *something* from those romance shows I used to watch," he says, grinning and blowing Ines a kiss before fazing through a wall

And woo! Fade ^^ I had this crazy idea. A crazy love-potion related idea, involving Ines and Ryuk. :-P Your thoughts?

Wrong account is wrong!

ooooh, love potioning between Ryuk and Ines would be delightful, if that's what you had in mind! I've just the mental image of Ryuk leaning his head on Ines's shoulder and spouting off silly romantical rubbish!

It has lolarious potential, particularly for those who aren't dead and would see Ines cooing by herself. Probably should keep it temporary, though ;-)

Yeah, flirt for a few minutes or so works for me: considering Ryuk ain't human or technically corporeal as it's normally understood, ye spell might not last as long as it would on a human or a Pony from Equestria.
