[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.]

[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

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?

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?
mypartnerintime: (Never minding what state I'm in)


[personal profile] mypartnerintime 2016-04-15 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Max shakes her head, confused about what River's saying. She resists the urge to glance at Chloe again.] Uh. Do you want us to... be quiet? [She whispers the words, worried now about being too loud.]

It's okay. We can go upstairs to my room, okay? And you can stay there by yourself if you want. [And now she does glance back quickly at Chloe, entirely unsure if what she's saying is correct.]
mypartnerincrime: (What? - [Talking: Angry])


[personal profile] mypartnerincrime 2016-04-16 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chloe is unfazed by River's statement. She's talked to a lot of weirdos. Arcadia Bay is just full of them.]

No shit I'm not Max. The name's Chloe.

[But she does look at Max when River backs away from them. Great Max. Now what? This girl needs some serious help.

And Chloe thought Nathan was bad. It seems that there's just always going to be some crackpot out there who's crazier than the first.

How comforting.]

Don't... scream? [Max shoots another confused look at Chloe, but lets it slide for now. She's met worse weird people. And River's not done anything wrong.

Conscious of not speaking too loudly, she just nods to River and whispers back.]

It's just one floor up. [Max notices the unsure glance at Chloe, though, as she beckons River to follow.] Chloe's just my sidekick. She's cool.
mypartnerincrime: (My friend Chloe. - [Talking: Interested])


[personal profile] mypartnerincrime 2016-04-18 03:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Right. I'm her sidekick. So don't mind me.

[Chloe looks at Max, trying her best to communicate non-verbally. Really? You're gonna bring her to your room? Does Max really trust River that much?

But anyway, Chloe decides to follow suit. She looks at River then nods at Max.]

Come on River. If you want to get to Max's room, we need to start walking.

[personal profile] mypartnerintime 2016-04-19 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chloe's pointed look at Max is met by a sharper one in return. When it comes to these two best friends, River isn't the only mind-reader. Yes Chloe, we're going to take care of the crazy kid, and she's definitely not staying in your room.

..Not that Max would be staying in the same room as River for long. Unless the girl really wants company, which Max kind of doubts. She wants to help, sure. Just as long as this doesn't turn into another Chara incident.]

I don't doubt it, River. [She smiles encouragingly at the River as they make their way along the hall. The stairs are nearby, so pretty soon she starts to climb them.]
mypartnerincrime: (Snag this photo - [Impish])


[personal profile] mypartnerincrime 2016-04-20 02:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chloe follows Max and River up to the stairs until they reach the third floor. Max's and Chloe's rooms are just a few feet from the staircase so Chloe is able to easily spot the numbers 307 and 308 from the distance. She stops in front of 307-- Max's room-- and turns the knob.]

Home sweet home, ladies.
mypartnerintime: (The universe is taunting me)


[personal profile] mypartnerintime 2016-04-23 11:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Why? Max misunderstands the question. She gestures through the door.] It's safer here.

[But the memory of why she's doing it is there. A classmate, Nathan Prescott- mentally disturbed, misunderstood- no one actually helping him, really listening- to the point that he became dangerous- that he shot Chloe, that blue-haired girl standing behind her.

That's why Max wants to make sure someone helps this time.

And that's why neither girl wants to stay in the same room as River, too.]
mypartnerincrime: (Hella paranoid - [Annoyed])


[personal profile] mypartnerincrime 2016-04-23 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Chloe is struggling to keep her cool. She really is not in the mood for a pep talk.The last time she was with someone crazy, she ended up drugged and on the floor, with a camera pointed at her face. Chloe's not exactly keen on being buds with someone as cray-cray as Nathan right now. The sooner they get in the room, the sooner this will all be over.]

It would be a lot safer if we weren't just standing like a bunch of idiots outside the room.

[She enters the room and takes out a box of cigarettes and a lighter from Max's closet (she left her other pack in her room) and lights up one cigarette. Chloe slowly exhales a puff of smoke and turns to face the window. A little R'n'R in case all hell breaks loose later on.]
