'Accidental' Video 1: A Little Bird's Song

As the video starts, there is a man standing with his back to the camera.  Long blue-black hair lays loose against his shoulders, messy and snarled.  He sways back and forth in an odd, almost worried rhythm.

"He's sick.  He's sick.  My Little Bird's sick and needs to rest," the words are soft, spoken to the same odd rhythm as the man's swaying.  "I want him to be better soon.  To be better now.  Why isn't he better?  Why doesn't the healing work?"

The Beast crouches down by the bed then, allowing a dark shock of hair belonging to someone curled up in a bundle of blankets on the bed to be seen for the first time.  However, the Beast doesn't stay that way long, bouncing back to his feet a few moments later and blocking the man from view again, "I know!  I feel better when he sings to me. I will sing to him!"

There is silence in the room for several moments and then a soft, low, harsh but oddly melodic voice starts singing a song in Ancient Gaelic.  It's a lullaby.  One his Little Bird said he wrote.  It is not long, so The Beast repeats it.  Over and over again.

Until the feed ends...

[Grainne doesn't know how she found this post, and nor does she care. She had been about to switch to something else when the words of the song caught her attention, and the longer it goes, the more angry she gets until she finds herself replying in text.]

Where did you learn that song?

[Grainne is upset enough that she complies with the request easily enough, impatient to know the answer.]

Fine! Is that better? Tell me where you heard that song!

[Grainne hesitates, frowning and ignoring his first remark; she's heard too much of that during her first life.]

Your 'Little Bird'?

[This man is so odd she is having trouble understanding exactly what he means with some of that... but the meaning is clear; someone taught it to him and there were only so many someones that knew that song, all long dead.]

Where did he learn it? What's his name?

[Grainne looks nervous, biting her lip at the mention of the one place she's been trying hard to avoid. But...

Wait.

The strange man's first sentence finally works into her head, and with sudden realization;]

Diarmuid.

[It's soft, and she's hardly breathing, so many emotions caught up in shock.]

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-10 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
[The man is mad, she's sure of that now. It worries her... and she remembers the dark hair that appeared when he was singing.

With the shock wearing off, she can think better now, and she glares at the man. If Diarmuid is here, it must mean he is the same as she, a Servant, and if he's ill-- that shouldn't even be possible. But what is this odd one here, another Servant? Though, with the way the conversation is going, she doubts she'll get any answers from him.]

I want to speak to Diarmuid. Let me speak to him.

[A week later; their house]

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-11 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Grainne had struggled for ages over what to do after that video she'd discovered on the network. Part of her wanted to go straight there to see him, another part whispered at the back of her mind that the strange man was right, that she wasn't wanted and she would only be a problem. A liability.

In the end, that Diarmuid had appeared so sick and the strangeness of the other man won out, and she had to know. That's why she had taken the next flight out of Ireland and hunted down the address she'd discovered linked to what appeared to be Diarmuid's account.

With all of it's entries...

That's why she is currently lurking about their house at night, letting herself in through less than legal means. If she can catch them sleeping, she could see for herself if her knight needed her.]
thebeastwithin: Set-I See What You Did There (I See What You Did There)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-11 06:53 am (UTC)(link)
[There is really only one person sleeping in the house when Grainne enters. That is, Set thinks Dia is sleeping and not unconscious because of his illness again. He sighs softly, running a hand through his hair and then leans forward to check the group of healing runes he has set on Dia. It is frustrating that no matter how he chains or stacks them together, they never do anything more than provide temporary relief and even the temporary relief has become less as time has passed.

It is safe to say that Set moved from being worried about his lover to being terrified a long time ago.

He is about to try adding another rune to the group when he feels something trigger one of the sets of detection runes he has laid in the upstairs rooms. Immediately, he is on his feet and on his way out of the room pausing only for a moment to look back at Dia.]

Stay there...

[Set knows it stupid to say it when his lover isn't even awake, but he does it anyway before dashing out of the room and up the stairs. He knows that whoever has broken in will be trapped in the room, but considering how shaky the Beast has made any rune use besides his healing ones, Set is taking no chances on them escaping because he dallied.]
athousandcurses: (Surprise)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-11 07:12 am (UTC)(link)
[Meanwhile, Grainne instantly feels the trap settle as soon as she enters the room, freezes for a second, and then immediately curses herself for being lazy. Whatever class of servants Diarmuid and the odd man were, she didn't count on one of them being a Caster, or having any ability like this at all. She makes a frustrated whimper and claws at her face.]

No..!

[Frantic, she starts working to break them and get out of the house. The runes feel shaky to her, and she might have a chance at getting out before they caught her, but she isn't pinning her hopes on it.]
thebeastwithin: Set-Look Up (Look Up)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-11 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Unfortunately for Grainne, the primary class of the person who cast the runes is Lancer, which means she only has a few seconds before he is standing outside the room's open door. He could enter without breaking the seal on the room, but he doesn't. Instead, Set crosses his arms over his chest and just watches her.

This...isn't what he was expecting to find at all. Pretty ladies don't usually break into his home... Well, not unless their name is Bazett and this definitely isn't Bazett.]

Are you lost there, Lass?
athousandcurses: (Aloof)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-11 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Grainne turns to face the man with some dread, recognizing him from some of Diarmuid's video posts. Unfortunately, the only thing that comes to mind to say is completely unfiltered and inane due to how completely unsettled she is at getting caught.]

You mean this isn't the bathroom? I'll be on my way then!

[Pausing, she rubs her hands over her face briefly before starting again.]

I'm assuming you're the... Caster. Please take these down. I am no threat to you.
thebeastwithin: Set-Past (Past)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-12 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
I am the caster...

[Set raises his hand for a moment as if he is going to dismiss the barrier and the lets his hand fall away without doing anything.]

...but I don't think I'm going to be dropping that shield quite yet. Do you want to tell me the real reason you're in my house?

[He pauses, something vague drifting into his mind. A memory...pulled from someone else. Someone who he shares a mind with.]

Why do you look familiar?
athousandcurses: (Sad)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-12 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
[Don't mind Grainne, she's just going to keep trying to remove them. She's built for this, it shouldn't be this hard...]

I will tell you that when you let me out of here, otherwise you can just look up that crazy man's posts. Either way I will be out of here.

[Pausing in her efforts, she takes a moment to carefully look him over, and a dark look passes over her face.]

...I came to see Diarmuid.
thebeastwithin: Set-It's Not Morning Yet (It's Not Morning Yet)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-12 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
[Set raises his hand again, a smirk pulling up the corner of his mouth, and draws a rune or two directly countering what she is undoing. There is an odd darkness dancing in his eyes. Something...someone is near the surface, but is only watching at the moment.]

'That crazy man?' You know the Beast? Is that why he is lurking so close... You realize if he takes over, you are probably safer in there. How about stopping trying to escape and talking to me instead.

Why do you want to see my baby? Who is he to you?

athousandcurses: (SEMPAI NOTICED ME)

[waking up]

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-25 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[There's something wrong. Grainne shouldn't be this warm, but she is. It's strange enough that it wakes her up, and her eyes fly open.

Set's face is only inches from her own, and his arms are wrapped around her keeping her embarrassingly close. For a moment she fails to remember what happened last night, but then it hits her all at once.

Ohh... and the... oh dear...

Slowly, she tries to wriggle out backwards, only to hit another warm body on the other side. Turning on her back, she looks behind her to see Dia's face. Somewhere between then and the startled squeak she makes, she realizes his legs are twined with her own, and someone's hand is on her butt...

Instantly, her face went red and she makes another startled squeak. How did she end up like this? More importantly, how is she going to get out of it without either of them waking up?]
thebeastwithin: Set-Smirk (Smirk)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-26 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
[If she doesn't want to wake them up, Grainne really needs to stop the squeaking. Or, maybe it is already too late. Set, unconsciously noticing that whoever he was holding onto has moved away, frowns slightly. First, he tries to tighten his arms to draw the person back, but when that doesn't work, he opens up one red eye...

Grainne's face is not what he was expecting to see. For a moment, he looks concerned and then worried, though the worry passes when he notices Dia still sleeping behind her.

He raises a finger to his mouth and makes a very faint 'shh' sound. They don't want to wake Dia now, do they?]
athousandcurses: (SEMPAI NOTICED ME)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-26 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Seeing Set is awake, Grainne's squeaking and moving stops, but the red on her face threatened to become ultraviolet. Oh no, what did she do to deserve this? And his hand is still...

This is too much. She starts mouthing 'Let me up,' trying to keep her shivering under control, and wriggling one hand around to her behind to grab the offending digits.]
thebeastwithin: Set-Prince (Prince)

[personal profile] thebeastwithin 2014-03-26 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Grainne, Grainne, do you not remember the stories of Cu Chulainn? Set may have changed a lot because of The Beast, but deep down he is still who he has always been...

...and that is exactly why he doesn't let her pull his hand away. Instead, he grabs onto her even harder.

Oops...definitely not what she probably wanted considering where he is grabbing. The very low and velvety voice that he speaks to her in probably doesn't help things either...]


Now, why would I want to let go of such a pretty little mouse?
athousandcurses: (Surprise)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-26 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
[The now firm hand causes her to squeak again, going into full blown panic mode. Her heart starts beating so hard it causes ripples along her chest, definitely not helping the case here.]

Set...

[That's definitely a whine, even as it's still whispered. She's trying to pull away back into Dia now, feeling like she's stuck between a rock and a hard place.

By the gods, it's been a long time she's been touched by a man like this.]

What if he wakes up? What are you going to say? What will I say?
shatteredservice: Dia-Pair (Pair)

[personal profile] shatteredservice 2014-03-27 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
[A wicked grin crosses Set's face and he seems about to answer her when something stops him short. He stays quiet instead, grin widening.

Oh...that can't be good.

Before Grainne can question him, though, a hand drops between her breasts to rest over her heart. Dia shifts closer to her, whispering lowly in her ear.]


Do you really think anyone can sleep with your heart beating so loudly? He's good a good grip, doesn't he? Nice strong fingers...

[And it doesn't help that Set's fingers starts massaging the area they are holding onto just right then...]
athousandcurses: (Protected/Safe)

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-03-27 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Another soft whine, but this time it's wordless. How can anyone even think between the two?

A small part of her brain tells her to try to escape, and she starts trying to extract herself to no avail, only making the contact worse with how weak she feels from the fierce heat rising inside her.]

What... what are you doing... you're just... teasing me right?
shatteredservice: Dia-Glow (Glow)

Going to throw a SMUT Warning in here for now. I still haven't decided if we will FTB or not...

[personal profile] shatteredservice 2014-03-27 05:19 am (UTC)(link)


[Dia moves closer, hand shifting slightly to lightly caress one of her breasts.]

Do you want us just to be teasing you?

[His tongue darts out to tease her ear and then he looks up and winks at Set who laughs lowly.]

Seems like he's feeling a little better, though, you know how servants restore each other's energy the best, don't you?

[Set winks at her.]

Wanna help me recharge him?
