[After this.]

When Dale leaves, Moiraine sees him to the door and locks it after him, then returns to the sofa, where she curls up as she had been wont to do as a novice and sits quietly for a while, lost in her own thoughts.

Eventually, something occurs to her, and she glides down the hallway to her bedroom once more. This time, she retrieves Raven's feather from the pinewood box and holds it lightly in her hand, stroking it with the tips of her fingers.

How I wish I could speak with you.

North and west of Moiraine's current position -- and several universes over, as it happens -- Raven's not-really-skin breaks out in goosebumps.

It is only a little bit of a surprise.

Moiraine is likely to feel a slight ticklish tug on the inside of her skull.






And then, of course, she feels a more physically substantial tug on her hair.

Because that is how Raven rolls.

"You are forgetting, I am thinking, how much that is for itching."

But he's laughing as he says it, and for a flickering moment his eyes are kind.

Raven makes a face.

If you are going going to put it like that, Magpie --

"Mostly no."

Then he tweaks her nose. Gently.

"You are so much bored, perhaps?"

Raven takes a few steps backward and drops to sit on the bed.

(Maybe later he will use it as a trampoline. Who can say?)

Then he tilts his head, watching her out of brilliant black eyes.

"That, I think, is not so much a surprise."

She did call him, after all. That is, in itself, not so common an occurrence.

Raven takes his moment to reach out and tuck Moiraine very firmly into his side.

It is comfortable.

And maybe a little comforting, too.

"You do not always have to be waiting for that, I do not think."

In case she was wondering.

Raven leans over to rest his cheek against her hair, the rest of him remaining unmoving save for the slow rise and fall of his breathing.

"Moiraine."

His voice is warm even as his smile is crooked.

"Sometimes, I am thinking, that is how love works."

He tugs her a little more tightly against him, arm wrapped firmly around her shoulders.

"Also family, yes?When we are needed, we come. Dire circumstances are not so much a necessity."

Raven snorts, very quietly.

"That is not always for saying much."

Not for either of them, really.

"And yet."

He doesn't quite laugh, just leans into her a little bit.

"You are, perhaps, not so much wanting me to guess."

creator_raven: (h b&w stare)
From: [personal profile] creator_raven
There is a moment where Raven goes stock-still.

Stone-still, even.

Something vast moves behind his eyes.

He does not blink.

"It was not so much a choice, that?"

Hers, his -- who can say?

Raven wrinkles his nose.

"Possibly he is for learning. That is, I think, not so bad a thing."

That Moiraine was not expecting him goes without saying.

"You are also for learning, yes? Then and now. So."

creator_raven: (h stern because you are an idiot)
From: [personal profile] creator_raven
Raven gives her an exasperated look back.

"Possibly not for this conversation, I am thinking. I was not so much there."

Or was he?

"It is often better, so."

Time travel is not for amateurs.

"But what will come, I think, is always changing."

Raven merely laughs, shaking his head.

He does not, however, let go of Moiraine.

"People are for making choices. It is not always so much the same."

"That, I am thinking, is how you know you are alive, yes?"

At this he moves away just enough to tilt her face up toward his, black eyes wide and bright.

"Things are always changing. Sometimes that is not so bad a thing."
