"Sure!"

Dani proceeds to explain the basic mechanics of the game, sets them up with some kits, and runs into the darkened "arena"

The harness is slightly itchy against Ari's bare chest, but it's kinda fun. He's somewhat disappointed by the premise: guns without bullets? Why would you take out the fun part? But Danny likes it, and he doesn't want to be a pill. He clambers up one of the obstacles, lies flat on his stomach on top of it, and casts around for his target.

Who's cunning crawling along the ceiling, and gets off a shot.

"Dammit!"

Ari drops to the floor and scurries under an overhang, lurking in a shadowed corner while he waits for his vest to stop flashing. He holds his gun close, in case Danny decides to press his luck.

"I am the darkness!"

Permalink

Ari throws his voice to make it sound like he's leaving his hidey-hole. (Ventriloquism is a job skill for a Witch of the Wilds.) "Screw your darkness, we're playing laser tag!"

Then he sneaks out the other side and shins up onto the top of the structure, scanning the ceiling for Danny.

He doesn't seem aware of him.

So Ari shoots him.

"Vengeance!" he crows.

Permalink

"I will unman you, new boy!"

Permalink

"What is it with you people trying to rip my dick off? I need that! Not at the moment, but I have plans!"

Permalink

"Wait, Tabby got you already?"

Permalink

"She was goading me and I was like 'if you want to fight we can just fight' and we fought and she emasculated me and I went into a blood rage and tried to crush her to death."

Permalink

"Fighting girls sucks sometimes."

Permalink

"Is that just what girls are like? I never really met one before."

Permalink

"Eh, lotta girls I've met are less... Tabby than Tabby. We just have more bits to grab onto in a fight."

Permalink

"Oh. Yeah."

Ari's gun is by his side; he seems more or less to have forgotten the game.

Permalink

Which Danny takes immediate advantage of with a few well aimed shots.

Permalink

Ari laughs. "Bastard!"

Permalink

He pokes his tongue out at Ari. "Vampires don't get married so nhyaa!"

Permalink

"That's just pedantic. -anyway, that was fun! What should we play next?"

Permalink

"I did stuff to some of the arcade cabinets so they go really fast!"

Permalink

"Ooh!"

They play video games for a while. Ari has a surprising amount of luck button-mashing on that fighting game, but still loses. He doesn't seem to mind very much. 

"D'you want to make out?" he asks after a few losses.

Permalink

He shrugs. "Maybe later."

Permalink

Ari tries a few more games. He's helped by speed and intelligence, but hindered by his lack of gamer instincts.

He flops onto the ground. "I'm not very good at this," he complains.

Permalink

“You’re doing better than a lot of us. Seriously, like, Maurice had never even a video game when I first showed him. And he isn’t even from another planet or whatever.”
