Lucy had arrived without warning at the apartment shortly before noon, and five minutes later Moiraine found herself in the passenger seat of Lucy's car on the way to a Tupperware party at Norma Jennings' home.

Although it had been an extremely unusual experience, she cannot truly say that it had not been a pleasant one. At the very least, it might be considered a beginning step, of sorts, toward becoming an accepted part of town society.

The Aes Sedai suspects that may have been Lucy's intention to begin with, but she does not plan to ask. The only question that remains at the immediate moment is what to do with the few pieces of plastic dishware that she has acquired as a result.

At present, she is sitting in a chair at the small table in the dining nook, contemplating the potential for using Tupperware as a makeshift vase.

Cooper overheard something very interesting early in the afternoon.

This is why he is knocking on the door of the apartment.

tibetanmethod: (investigators are capable of having bad)

That gives Cooper a great deal of pause.

But he opens the door.

And says, quietly, and far more subdued, "Hello, Moiraine."

"And to you." He leaves his hand on the knob momentarily, and looks at it, before shutting the door and turning around. "Moiraine, is the door warded?"

Now he does smile, faint and brief. "Could I ask you to keep it locked, at the very least? As a personal favor?"

tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
He's still standing by the door.

"Nothing specific." Cooper shakes his head a little. "Let's just say -- it's good practice."

And things have a way of happening, in Twin Peaks.

tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)

He seems to shake something off, and moves forward. "Yes. Thank you." His gaze falls on the table. "I heard that Lucy invited you to a -- gathering."

Date: 2009-09-20 04:49 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (tell uncle dale the whole sordid story)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
Cooper tilts his head. "I hear they're useful for keeping leftovers."

Date: 2009-09-27 04:10 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (a touch of PIE)

"Flower arrangement seems like a very good use for it."

He seems in earnest.

From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
"Yes," Cooper agrees, and shifts his hands in his pockets.

He'd thought a little about how to ask, but --

"Was it an enjoyable gathering?"

Not perfect, Cooper. Still needs work.

Cooper nods. "Were they -- I'm not sure how to put this." Beat. "Were you uncomfortable? Due to their curiosity, or how they expressed it?"

Date: 2009-09-27 04:36 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (this is me being very very patient)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
A faint smile.

"I'm an investigator," he says lightly. "I like to stay informed."

tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
"And if there had been problems... it would be helpful to know. In case there's anything that can be done to smooth things over."

Date: 2009-09-27 05:03 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
Cooper tilts his head. "If I gave you the impression that I don't think you should do that, I apologize. My intentions are, and always have been, quite the opposite."

Date: 2009-09-27 05:08 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
Without missing a beat: "It goes with the job." Another faint smile. "I'm afraid I'm expected back at the station. Stakeout."

Date: 2009-09-27 05:27 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (i'll see you again in twenty-five years)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
Cooper shakes his head. "Nothing serious. Just my turn for it."

tibetanmethod: (this is me being very very patient)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
"When I left, Lucy was brewing an extra pot. We should be fine."

It's Cooper's responsibility to stop by the Wagon Wheel for doughnuts on his way back.

Date: 2009-09-27 05:44 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (this is me being very very patient)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
"Lucy thinks of everything." A quick smile. "Have a good evening, Moiraine. If you need anything -- you know where to call."

Date: 2009-09-27 05:50 am (UTC)
tibetanmethod: (this is me being very very patient)
From: [personal profile] tibetanmethod
"And you, Moiraine."

Another smile, and he lets himself out.




And, the instant he's in his car, passes a hand over his eyes before starting the engine.
