IC CONTACT for [community profile] lostcarnival

FREQUENCY: 843.77425 (personal);
DESCRIPTION: Half the time he forgets this thing even exists, or how to turn it on and off.

LOCATION: Next to trailer steps.
DESCRIPTION: The concept of a mailbox is rather foreign to Lambert, who's not exactly what you'd call big on personal correspondence. But there's a wooden crate you can probably drop shit into ???

BUG LAMBERT TO MAKE YOU SHIT: Given time and the right ingredients (which he'll usually ask people to provide) he can make potions (with potential side effects), oils, and bombs. You can bother him more about that in person.

Lambert I need to speak with you privately. Are you preoccupied?

[Before they can even really get into discussing the place...]


[And then she just shows up where Lambert is immediately, without any directions. WHERE ARE WE, LAMBERT?]

[She crosses her arms.]

Well, there's no sense in wasting time!

[She frowns, and then puts his hands on her hips. She looks deeply contemplative, and at least sort of moody. This is very serious business apparently.]

So... I'm sure you are aware that the Nightrider... wasn't retrieved.

[She looks bothered to say that.]

I understand.

[Apparently, she's not here to blame him for it, at the very least. She's very upset that it happened, but she's honestly surprised they managed to get as many of the captives back as they did.]

You were very... proactive, during that mission. And I appreciate that.

[Both getting people into and out of trouble is basically the Ringmaster lifestyle. Actually, it doesn't seem like she was expecting praise for that part at all, and she stares for a moment with a raise of the eyebrows. Oh.]

I can't imagine why I would do that. Going there was never the worker's obligation, it was mostly mine...

[Sure, it was the Nightrunner's job too in a sense, but it would be impractical to expect them to stand up to enemies on her tier.]

You accomplished exactly what I was hoping for you to. I doubt I could have made it through the fortress without also killing the people I'd meant to protect. Fights between beings like us are not the most clean...

[She considers for another moment before making up her mind.]

You are a very effective Nightrunner... and not a particularly attentive nurse.

And so it seemed most sensible to offer you the position of the next Nightrider.

[She groans and puts out her hands helplessly.]

I don't exactly have a lot of options, Lambert!

[She crosses her arms again and shrugs her shoulders. At least he's considering it!]

It would mean that you're the boss of the Nightrunner's operations, and that you get to tell everybody what to do. It seems like you're the only one with any sense of military strategy, so I imagine it'd be fitting. Normally I'd only give this position to a long term employee, but they have been slim pickings recently.

I find myself having to make a leap of faith.

...Oh, also you'd get a new, bigger trailer in the Supervisor Grove.

Well... you might end up growing extra limbs, but it wouldn't be all that related to your position, I can tell you that much. No second contract is required. It's just a leadership position, really... and not one I can afford to slack on with the security issues we've been having recently.

You may take some time to decide. The sooner the better, obviously, but I guess it also isn't something to be done lightly.

[She has to consider that. It's not something that comes up very often.]

Usually I make my payments upfront, but sometimes it gets left until the worker goes home just for convenience purposes... so, no. If you died there would be no reason for me to back down my side of the bargain. I could honestly fulfill my end of your contract right now, but it would be a bit complicated with the way the timelines work...

So often, the person will want to make the kill themselves, which is a whole other thing to arrange.

[She's silent for a moment, and then answer, just a little sullenly:]

I suppose so.

[That is to say, she isn't going to force you to keep doing it past a certain point, but it will be really annoying and a big hassle for her to find someone else most likely so she's rather you didn't.]

[personal profile] lordofthering 2017-03-24 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Very well.

[It's not said tersely, but she's not very enthusiastic to wait either. She puts out her arms like she's about to do a gymnastics pose.]

I await your decision!

[And then she does a backflip and vanishes into thin air.]
