[River has done everything you are supposed to do. She has wandered the grounds, played with the fish, admired the flowers, then suddenly took notice of the giant mansion that had been looming at the corner of her eye the entire time. She then dutifully entered and took a long walk straight to an empty room. Because that's what she's supposed to do.

It's then that she addresses the communicator that's been in her hand the whole time.

everyone gets bored always saying the same things
i got told i wont wake up and this planets in a corner of the verse no one can reach
no need to threaten anyone

[She pauses to gather her thoughts. There are a lot of them and some of them aren't hers and those ones are making her brain itchy. She's trying her best to be clear.]

people say strange things that have nothing to do with this place
but thats only as important as you make it
whats important is

[What is important? River is not sure she even knows. She scratches at her head and continues.]

too empty for a place thats full
wish i was lost

[That's enough for now. She hits send and leaves the room, and sets off wandering the mansion the way she did the grounds. Her footsteps are heavy in their big combat boots, but she gives a kind of grace to it regardless. She can be found anywhere, looking very lost with big confused eyes that stare like she's constantly in the headlights. She pointedly avoids the labs and the clinic, but has no qualms stepping into, say, the bar or the magic study, although she has no place in either. She touches things a lot.]

Alex sits bolt upright.

There's only one thing that could be referring to, and he sees it enough every night in his goddamn nightmares.]

What the fuck are you playing at.

This isn't funny.

[Shit continues to hit the fan, and then the fan breaks from the excess of shit hitting it, and Alex is on the verge of panic right now. Is she in his head?]

shut up shut up SHUT UP

[He switches off his device and flings it in the corner of his room, trembling.]

[Max pokes around the network all the time - and it's really unnerving when she sees a text from this girl asking if Alex will 'burn' her, to be followed by silence on Alex's part. It's possible he switched to private texting, which he should have done ages ago, but he was probably panicking.]

Hi it's River right? I'm Max. :)

Are you okay? You really made Alex worry...
mypartnerintime: (Never Maxine)

[Partly she thinks River must be crazy. But she also inhales sharply. She knows how Alex can resort to really extreme shit when stuff gets really bad. Murder is up there - he almost did it with Chara, and he's probably done it before.

But it was always for a good reason, right? To protect people from his... monster thing.]

Hey no its ok. where are u now? Is he threatening you?

[Wow, River is definitely starting to lose it, and Max is almost in a panic herself as she rushes out a reply, even if she doesn't understand it all. But then that second set of messages comes in, and... and it seems like River's calming down.]

safe and whole river

alex wont hurt u. he just gets upset sometimes

but its safer if your with me

can you help me find you? are you in mansion? on ground floor?

stay there river im otw

he would. for real

[She wants to believe that's true, anyway- they're friends, good friends, even. She's not one hundred percent sure what he's capable of, and deep down she's a little scared too, but come on, this is dorky Alex with his dorky glasses. They're friends.]
mypartnerintime: (Thanks for the morning grope)

Chloe-mun will tag!

[personal profile] mypartnerintime 2016-04-05 12:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Max is honestly nervous- not quite scared, but getting there. Alex is a good friend, and she's pretty certain he wouldn't hurt her. But he's also unstable deep down. Best to be really careful... so Max brings along her best friend Chloe.

When she catches sight of River sitting on the floor outside the library, well... she's pretty sure they found the right person. She approaches slowly, after a quick glance back at Chloe.]

Hey... Are you River?
mypartnerincrime: (A man and his dog. - [Worried])

action; (so sorry for the late tag!)

[So Chloe receives a text from Max, asking her for some help. Apparently, Max is on the way to meet this chick from the network who's potentially pissed Alex off. Now Max wants to protect the girl and make sure that Alex doesn't get to her.

How Super Max. Always ready to save the day. Now being her faithful sidekick, Chloe said yes to Max's request. Really, as if she can leave her best friend to deal with this shit.

So they make their way to the library, where they spot this girl sitting on the floor. Chloe is slightly wary as Max has told her that this girl-- River-- seems to be losing her marbles. Max looks at her for advice.

She gives her the smallest of nods but she's ready to pull Max out in case things get ugly.]

[personal profile] mypartnerintime 2016-04-10 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[Okay, it's probably best to just... ignore all the crazy. She reaches out, offering her hand to lift the other girl up.]

Great, River. Come on, let's get to my room, okay?

[She gestures at the same time to Chloe, wordlessly asking for help. Max isn't sure at all how River will react, but she's going to trust both her and Chloe to keep their cool.]
mypartnerincrime: (Step douche. - [Talking: Normal])


[personal profile] mypartnerincrime 2016-04-14 03:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chloe sighs and walks towards Max and River. Sure she wants to help out but she does not want to get super involved. She doesn't know this River person and Chloe's not sure she can trust her.

Fuck, wish I had my gun. She'd feel safer with it. Nevertheless, she reaches out to help Max pick the other girl up from the floor.

She whispers to Max behind River, doing her best not to be heard by the other girl because Chloe gets the feeling she can go loco any time.]

You sure about this Max?
