PostSubject: There's a long black train, comin' down the line~   Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:41 pm



Rune had no one to say goodbye to, so she was on the train before her partner.  "Hmm, hmmm, what to do, what to do..." she mumbled, finding her way about the cars.  She stumbled into the food car and a smile widened across her face.  People always came here, didn't they?  That seemed logical.  
Instead of eating, she poured a glass of a fizzy substance, and leaned against the wall.  "Humdedum,  where is everybody?" she said aloud, starting to get lonely as she drummed her fingers against the wall.

Shaun had said goodbye to his sisters before getting on the train. He was going to miss them...and could only wonder how long they would miss him. He stepped inside, looking around as he walked in. There didn't seem to be much in this car...so he started walking to others. After going through about two, he found himself in the food car with his district partner. He grabbed an apple off of one of the fruit platters and sat down on one of the couches. "Hey...you seem to be here a bit early. Rune, right?"

Rune stopped her finger-drumming when the door opened.  She smiled, taking another sip of her fizzy drink.  "Yep, Rune's the name! And you're... Shaun, right?" she said, her voice cheery and casual.  She finished off the fizzy drink and pushed away from the wall.  As she poured herself another glass, she began to hum a chipper tune.  She spun about, still humming a bit, and scratched her head with her free hand. "There wasn't a reason to say good-bye, so I just skipped to the train part." She plopped down on a lazy chair next to Shaun's couch.  Another sip of fizzy drink, and she spoke again.  "Any idea when the mentor's gonna show up?"

He nodded, taking a bite out of the apple, chewed and swallowed before answering, "Yep, that's me..." He kept eating, listening as she told him there was no need to say goodbye. He wondered what that must be like, not having anyone to say goodbye to...didn't seem to bother her much, but it would certainly bother him. He heard her ask a question about when their mentor would arrive and he looked at her for a second before swallowing the bite he had been chewing and said, "Well...I don't know. But I would think he would be here soon..."

ROWAN QUISTAN -- District Eight Mentor

Rowan made his way from his sleeping car to the dining car. A longer walk than he cared for, but a familiar walk nonetheless. He was trying something new this year: staying sober, or as close to possible. Not being sober has cost him four tributes since Thomas, and he didn't want that again. Inching closer to the door to the dining car, Rowan stopped and peeked in. His tributes backs were to him, luckily, and he was able to take them in. Rowan heard part of their conversation, wondering when he'd show up. Taking that as his cue, Rowan opened the door and entered.

"The better question, dears, is when is he not going to show up," he said as he entered the car. Walking around the back of the seating, Rowan made his way over to a table. Selecting a bottle of fruit juice, something citrusy, Rowan turned to face the duo. Cracking open the bottle and taking a drink, Rowan sighed. "Shaun, nice to see you again," he said with a smile. Turning to the girl, Rowan gave her a smile. "And you must be Rune. Nice to meet you," he said with a nod. Pulling a chair from the dining table, Rowan turned it around and sat in it backwards, facing his tributes. Taking another drink, Rowan looked them over. "First up, do you all have any question for me?" he said with a hint of laughter. "Either that, or we begin breaking the ice. Both work," he said with a smile.

"Impeccable timing, professor," Rune said, sipping again at her drink.  She watched the man, her mentor, as he got himself settled.  "I've got a few questions but..." she trailed off, glancing at Shaun.  "There's a lot.  He outa go first.  Not my place to take all your time." She finished with a shrug.

Shaun smiled as their mentor stepped in. He finished off his apple, throwing the core into the trash and said, "Nie to see you again as well...although I wish they were under different circumstances." Shaun's smile grew as he listened to Rune talk, apparently having a lot of questions and let Shaun go first. He shrugged and put his hands in his pockets. "Well...what's the best thing for us to grab? Based on what I've see I'd assume a weapon, but water and food also seem like they could be useful."

ROWAN QUISTAN -- District Eight Mentor

Rowan looked deflated. "Right to the chase, eh you two?" he said with a grimace. Shrugging, Rowan took another drink, Rowan pulled himself up a bit. "Alright. First things first, you need someone you can trust. Don't think that just because you two are district partners means that you're gonna work together," he said sternly. Looking the two over, Rowan continued. "The closer you look, the more apt the Gamemakers are to force you apart. Don't get too close, but don't stray too far. One misstep means you come home in a box." Rowan took another drink. Sighing, he looked at his shoes. "Weapons and food first. If the Cornucopia makes it seems the arena will be dry, attempt to get something that can hold water. I'll help as much as I can from the Capitol, but it's up to you two to make the Capitol citizens love you," he said.

Returning his gaze to the two, he laughed. "That it?" he questioned Shaun. "If so, what do you need to say, Rune?" he said, giving the girl a nod.

Rune shifted in her seat as Shaun spoke, pulling her legs up so they were crossed beneath her in the couch.  She found it an odd first question; of course the survival stuff and weapons made sense!  But she let Rowan handle that.  It was his job after all.  
"Mmm, yes," she said, swirling the remainder of the drink a bit in its cup.  How best to phrase it?  She didn't want to confuse him, or barrage him with simple stuff.  "Well... how should one go about keeping their allies alive?  Since looking too close obviously is a concern."  She leaned back, watching the other two.  They seemed to know each other; that was good.  He'd probably focus efforts on Shaun then.

Shaun nodded as their mentor finished what he was saying, reaching in his pocket and turned what was in it over in his hand before just letting it rest there. Rowan asked if that was it and nodded, looking to Rune as she asked her question. When she was still in the middle of her question, he realized he was still a little hungry and he got up, looking at all the food. He saw another fruit, a dark purpleish color, and he picked it up, walking back over to his seat and sat down, taking a bite out of it. His eyes widened when his teeth sank into the soft surface, but also heard as strange yet satisfying crisp sound. However, he kept in his shock to how good the fruit was as to not interrupt.

ROWAN QUISTAN -- District Eight Mentor

Rowan turned his attention to Rune. "Keeping allies alive, eh?" he repeated. Scratching his cheek, Rowan bit his bottom lip. "That's the question of the ages, dear," he said with a flicker of laughter in his eyes. "Outnumbered? Attempt to flee and protect each other if you can't protect yourself." Pausing, he took another drink. Wiping his mouth, he continued. "Evenly matched, fight and defend for each other. You come first, remember that, however. Block and attack for you first, then help the other if they need it." Straightening himself in his seat, Rowan looked between Shaun and Rune. "And if you outnumber the opponent, attack them. If one of you can't block with success, then step in. Otherwise, there's not much to worry about in that situation," he said, leaning back. Stretching, Rowan stifled a yawn. Looking at the duo, he smiled. "How's that?" he asked rhetorically.

Rune listened quietly as Rowan went on, frowning when he said that she came first.  Of course he'd say that, but that wasn't her goal.  She tracked Shaun with her eyes as he got up in the middle of Rowan's words.  Rude.  But he might be worth it; he was from Eight, after all.  "Pretty basic but... thanks," she smiled, trying to keep on Rowan's good side.  "So then.  We don't wanna look to close, so... how should we play Capitol time?" she asked, looking between the two guys, "I mean there's plenty of options, right?"

Shaun had been tearing into the fruit, wondering how something could be so amazingly delicious and why he hadn't been able to find it sooner. He remembered seeing them in markets but...he had never actually bought one. He heard their mentor ask something, figured it was about the fruit and said, "Delicious...I don't even know ho-" All of a sudden it hit him that he probably wasn't talking about what he was eating and he looked up. He looked between his district partner and mentor and gulped, saying, "I mean...yeah, sounds good...block for others but me first." His cheeks were slightly red for getting so caught up in eating that he misunderstood the question, but he had made sure to listen. Thankfully.

ROWAN QUISTAN -- District Eight Mentor

"Hmm, playing Capitol time is difficult," Rowan said, standing. Turning around, he sorted through the food on the table. Grabbing a handful of a berry (blueberries :3), he turned back around, popping several into his mouth. "Watch your enemies, watch yourself, and make the Gamemakers love you" he said. Taking his seat again, Rowan putted more berries in his mouth. "The Capitol will be strictly about you. You only need me for advice in the Capitol," he said. Scratching his head, Rowan took another drink. Watching his tributes, Rowan yawned, forgetting to stifle it this time. "Excuse me," he muttered.
