Here they are, having a cute post-death reunion!
[I bet you can't list them all while Chainsaw's getting increasingly offended by your "daydreaming",] teases Timer.
[That eager to hear me call myself a slut? 'Cause hey, if that's what you're into...]
[Just following the conversational thread, babe.]
[Love you, sweetie.]
[Love you too.]
And that's it from him, for another little while.
Timer goes to the restaurant for drinks with Fractal, gets slightly tipsy, timers his way home, and picks up a book.
No more word from the Joker.
In fact, nothing. Like he's not on the network at all.
Is this a good time to use one of these coins to go find him?
On a scale of minutes, it's in about ten. On a scale of days, it's in about five. On a scale of years, it's next month. On a scale of centuries, it's... still next month.
But a good time to call Eights is in about thirty minutes.
Timer sits tight.
He lets half an hour go by.
And he phones her.
She answers with a cautious, "Hi?"
"Hi, Eights, what's up? This was a good time to call you, and, perhaps relatedly, do you know where the Joker went?"
"...Technically no," she says. "But I do know Chainsaw set him on fire and I haven't seen him since. Uh. Sorry. He seemed really happy about it, if that's any consolation."
"I bet he was. He's not telepathy-able right now, though, and I'm confused - he either went home without stopping in to say goodbye, or Chainsaw managed to kill him after all."
"Pretty sure it's the second one."
"Well, damn. Now either Bella's going to split him too, or a vampire with a missing mate is going to be looking after my kid."
"Sorry," she repeats.
"Eh. He at least thought he knew what he was getting into. Thanks for telling me."
This is a good time to hang up.
There's no way to get a look in the queue. Usually.
Is this a good time to wish a look in the queue?
Wish. (Timer doesn't have a great sense of which coins are for which things, so he goes from a triangle up. Takes a square.)
