 [It took him a while, and a lot of confusion, before he was able to sort out what exactly in the Hell was happening to him. Finally he discovered the truth--that he was reading the thoughts of those around him. Fascinating, but it was giving him a bit of a headache. Still, his intense curiosity finally brought him out of his room, a small chinchilla kitten riding along in his coat pocket. When the chatter of random--and they were usually very random--thoughts around him grew too overwhelming, he focused on the kitten's mind and her simple dreams. Of course then she woke up and he got a headful of ??? as she peered curiously at everything around her.]

[He kept walking around, half eavesdropping on minds and half hoping to get into a nice distracting conversation to block out all the chatter.]

How does Narvin do this all the time?

Years of practice and self discipline, I'd imagine.

[Charles had been on his was to the dining hall, and as soon as he'd felt another mind somewhat intentionally brush against his, he tightened his defenses and reached out to the other slightly distressed mind, raising an eyebrow a bit from the other end of the common room. He wouldn't be able to read much besides what Charles wanted him to, but the mutant's mind was calm and subtly reassuring, because he knew how strange this had to be for someone who had never experienced it before.]

Or at least, that's how it was, in my experience. I'm not a Time Lord. Did you and Narvin switch abilities?

[Charles is used to communicating with people who aren't all that experienced conversing telepathically, so the snippets of personal thought floating across aren't unusual or unexpected. It was difficult, to discipline your mind to make sure people were only reading what you wanted them to, and god knows he wasn't perfect at it when his mutation first started to develop.]

If you need any help, I'd be happy to teach you the basics of shielding and tuning out certain thoughts. I know it can get a bit loud if you don't know how to control it.

[I likely won't be able to tell how I'm effected until (that one, grab him, pull the head back and cut the throat) it ends, although if the pattern holds of warden-inmate switches then Fordring's behavior can be explained by taking on some of my personal traits, though (she's barely paying attention, stupid girl, slash her eyes and drive your knife into the back of her head when she screams) its equally possible he just decided to grow a pair and the flood has nothing to do with it, I wish he would get it over with and kill me already, what more do I need to do?

Arthas is walking back to his room. He's got coffee. Hell yes, coffee is awesome.]

[He agrees, but the impatience is still there, and it's overpowering most rational thought. He is irritated now, and wants to leave or start a fight or both.]

CES?

[For their match, of course. Sparring is good. Violence is entirely appropriate in sparring. He has forgotten entirely that Dracula can overpower him in favor of the gnawing need to hurt something.]

I wasn't allowed to go out to that port. [Fordring was angry with me because of the murder and torture.

Arthas doesn't hesitate getting into the elevator, but his thoughts race. (Just go in, it's not going to trap you inside a metal box with no windows hanging from the ceiling by a string. Who builds these things? What's wrong with a plain, open platform?)]

We have them at home, though. Usually I need [Frostmourne] a weapon to take down something that big.

At least you get more than one chance, here.

[The Barge has taken away what little notion he had of the fear of death.

He'd been shot in the head, his eyes had been cut open, he'd been dissolved, electrocuted, burned to ash, torn apart, ribs and neck broken, throat cut, but and when he was done screaming he always stood back up because it wasn't a defeat if he didn't surrender. These are good memories. They prepare him.]

[Sarah (There is a void of detachment here where there probably should be a strong emotion. Something has been deliberately cut free from its moorings and disposed of.)]

Where are you going with this?

[He steps out of the elevator (much relief to be on solid "ground.") and begins to head up towards the deck door.]

His tone of voice is indifferent, as though he's forgotten about it. He stops at the deck door and steps aside.]

It doesn't open for me any more. [as if it would stop me if I really wanted to jump off, Fordring, you unimaginative old man.] What offer is that?

[This is where Arthas' temper would flare and he'd walk away, if not for the flood. As it is, he's just bitter.

He'd been a scared child who wanted to die for his country because maybe that would make everything right again, his father would see he had nothing left to give, his mentor would forgive the measures he'd taken, his people would not have died in vain.

He'd been inverted and violated (naive idiot) and they'd all died at his hands, everything you'd sold yourself to protect, all of them, killed and devoured by something horrible (you) walking around in his skin (you laughed when your mentor told you you deserved hell, and the blood welled up in his mouth when you crushed your boot against his head]


So tell her to leave me alone.

[Arthas gave him a disparaging look. Oh, shut up, it's never going to work.

The CES decided to greet them with a night sky and a solid torrent of rain and wind. Arthas sighed and pulled up his hood. Going to need to clean my boots again after this.]

[Did they have giant boars on Kalimdor? He couldn't really remember. There were weirder things out there.

Arthas starts striding towards the noise, unhurried, before he even finishes the thought. There is nothing approaching fear or apprehension, just curiosity and faint, edged bloodlust.]
