Tie Me Up Before You Go

(11:59:29 PM) The Universe:
{Genja looks at Phoenix} So I understand there’s a “relationship” to discuss.
(11:59:46 PM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Yes sir.
(12:00:15 AM) The Universe:
{Genja smiles at Eden} *That* is how it’s supposed to sound.
(12:01:00 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden smiles at Genja} If *I* did that you’d think there was something wrong with me.
(12:01:20 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden shrugs} Sir.
(12:01:44 AM) The Universe:
{Genja nods} Honestly, love, if you did that I’d think you didn’t like me and I’d ban you from my room during daylight hours.
(12:02:45 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden beams when he calls her the pet name} See.
(12:03:15 AM) The Universe:
{Genja smiles again, looks at Phoenix} I prefer people to be up front with their hostility.  Even if it’s annoying, at least it’s honest.
(12:03:31 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} And you know who to watch out for.
(12:04:04 AM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} It makes things simpler.
(12:05:13 AM) The Universe:
{Genja nods} That said.. since I don’t feel like hazing you and because I’m feeling generous, I’m going to give you a little bit of a head’s up.  Watch out for Glen. He won’t forget what happened in court earlier and he’s not the type that easily lets things like that go.
(12:06:13 AM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix softly} Thank you, sir.
(12:07:01 AM) The Universe:
{Genja nods} So.. let’s talk about your “relationship” and we can start by you telling me *why* we’re talking about your “relationship”.
(12:07:34 AM) The Cosmos:
{Ava and Eden listen}
(12:07:55 AM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix looks at Genja, then at Alexei}
(12:08:35 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Genja}  I would ask you to give me to Phoenix to serve.  Officially.  It would only interfere with my… “acclimation” of new vampires.  Specifically the females.
(12:09:20 AM) The Universe:
{Genja arches a brow, looks at Ava and Eden} I don’t see why Morose couldn’t do it and just as well.
(12:10:06 AM) The Cosmos:
{Ava nods} He could.
(12:10:40 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden smiles and nods}
(12:10:47 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Morose is probably the best choice, yes.  He has the disposition.  I would also be.. delegating.. my duties among the other ghouls more than I have been.
(12:12:03 AM) The Universe:
{Genja looks back at Alexei} Does this mean you’re finally starting to trust them?
(12:12:43 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei furrows his brow, looks at Phoenix} Perhaps I do have trust issues.
(12:13:35 AM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix smiles encouragingly at Alexei} I’m not sure.. I haven’t seen you with them.
(12:15:53 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei nods, looks at Genja} Perhaps I am, though.. it is true that now that the selections have been made, there is much less to do during the day with the vampires who have humans watching over them.  I have a better feeling for what they are each best at.  Jace, for example, should be kept away from new vampires as much as possible unless they are.. like Simone.  Of course, that is only a consideration for the next week.
(12:16:54 AM) The Cosmos:
{Ava tilts her head} Why should Jace be kept away from them?
(12:18:14 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei smiles at Ava} You met him, yes?  His disposition is a bit off putting to those who do not know him.
(12:18:44 AM) The Cosmos:
{Ava smiles} I’ve met him.. he’s been very..nice to me when I’ve seen him.
(12:20:52 AM) The Universe:
{Alexei nods} He tends to be very aggressive and many of the vampires I have dealt with have needed someone calm and less.. offensive.  Morose is charming, sweet, funny and.. {shakes his head} I am not criticizing Jace, but Morose’s appearance is also more… pleasing.. to the average woman than Jace’s.
(12:21:50 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden smiles} Morose is fucking hot.  And the fact that he’s a musician is just bonus.
(12:21:54 AM) The Universe:
{Genja smiles as Alexei struggles to say what he means without it sounding like he’s putting Jace down, looks at Ava} Jace isn’t the least bit diplomatic, he isn’t smooth and he isn’t the type that easily gains someone’s trust.  He’s rough around the edges and a bit mouthy.
(12:22:01 AM) The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at Eden and blinks}
(12:22:26 AM) The Universe:
{Genja and Alexei look at Eden, Genja arches a brow, Alexei smiles, nods to Eden} Precisely.
(12:23:20 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden shrugs} He is.  I mean.. he walked into the music room and I think every girl in there wet themselves.
(12:23:45 AM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix looks at Eden, blinks}
(12:23:48 AM) The Universe:
{Genja smiles} Down, girl, or we might have to take a tour of the dungeon.
(12:24:09 AM) The Universe:
{emphasizes dungeon because he’s being a shit}
(12:24:09 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden smiles wickedly at Genja} Oh?
(12:24:40 AM) The Universe:
{Genja arches a brow, smiles again} Yes.  I think I can fit that into the schedule.
(12:25:42 AM) The Cosmos:
{Eden watches Genja}
