All right. I'll bite.

What's this 'party' supposed to be about, exactly?

[Not that he's thinking he'll go. Which may be obvious from the flat tone.]

An amalgamation of wine, women, and song. 1 They will disguise it in the costumes, but mark my words that all three things shall occur.

1 - All human gatherings can be reduced to this, in my experience. Rarely does it ever turn out well, with the exception of an exhibition made for Solomon that I had the fortune to witness. As I recall, it involved marinating the men in wine, then feeding them to the women while they sang.

So... if you're right. Then there's not really any reason to go.

[Not for him, anyway. That last part is just... what is that.]

That depends on the person. Some are quite enamoured with wine, women, and song. Others have some sense about them. Which are you?

Can't sing, can't drink human alcohol, and... there really aren't any turian women here.

I'll be passing, on this one.

Good to see a wet blanket in the crowd! But are you sure you don't want to go and stand sullenly at the fringe? I hear it's quite trendy.

[Wet blanket? What does that...?]

Whose fringe?

The fringe of the party, where you'll stand on the outside and look in. Not fond of that? Try propping up the wall. 2

2 - An overlooked and important job at any gathering. Can't have the walls falling in on the revellers now can we.

And have the walls collapse in on the partygoers? Where is your sense of community and kindness?

From what I've heard, it involves dressing up in costume and a lot of candy. I'm not familiar with the holiday itself, but I don't see any downsides so far.

Did you catch the bit about there being candy?

[This is clearly all the reason needed to go. Clearly.]

Oh, you're not human? No worries, I'm sure there'll be some sort of candy there you can enjoy.

[After all, elves and dwarves can still enjoy things!]

[... Pause.]

Do the words... 'dextro-amino based life' mean anything to you?

[Because short of Shepard, no one else has known what he is, and he's not so sure he wants to explain right now.]

[personal profile] adorabastard 2011-10-19 08:37 am (UTC)(link)
Let's see! I've got the "life", and I've got the "based". As for the others? ... No, not at all.

[identity profile] turian_honor.livejournal.com 2011-10-19 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
Then... let's just say it probably wouldn't be a good idea.

It's a place to be and something to do. Closest thing we've had to shore leave in a while, matter of fact.

If relaxing is so difficult, think of it this way-- I bet you a hundred creds something is going to happen at this 'party'. I'm not going unarmed.

Well, when there's a hundred credits on the line... how can I refuse?

[identity profile] xenoshepherd.livejournal.com 2011-10-22 07:48 am (UTC)(link)
Bottom line? You can't.

So we had better get started on picking out appropriate costumes.

[identity profile] turian_honor.livejournal.com 2011-10-22 07:55 am (UTC)(link)
Damn. I was just looking for an opportunity to pay you the hundred credits I don't have.

... Uh. Yeah. I guess we should.

A little debt in the middle of nowhere never hurt anybody that I know of.

[Besides, if they ever get out, Shepard would conveniently forget the bargain to begin with. Or surprise him one day. If they survive.]

You never pretended to be somebody else as a kid?

audio

[identity profile] turian_honor.livejournal.com 2011-10-22 08:02 am (UTC)(link)
That you know of, anyway.

[But hey, he sounds amused, anyway.]

I uh... once or... twice.
