An ornate purple bottle is sitting, rather innocently, on a counter…

Bottle Bound
An ornate purple bottle is sitting, rather innocently, on a counter in the nexus. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for it being there, but its doing no harm, is it? Well, not until it shakes a little, and a bright pink mist of smoke shoots from the uncorked top. After a moment, it fades away to leave the pink, harem clad form of a blonde young woman who looks rather confused when she realizes that she is not, in fact, in the living room of a fine house in Cocoa Beach, Florida. She doesn't seem too perturbed, however, at least not by her location. Instead, it might be that she's more worried about the location of something else entirely.

"Has anyone seen my Master? He is tall, with dark hair, and he is very handsome!"

This man is also tall, with dark hair, very handsome by the opinion of the women in a certain mid-eastern village at least (and the ladies of the court centuries ago).

He is not, however, the first and probably most important quality Jeannie is looking for. In fact, he looks decidedly disapproving of the word itself as he folds his arms across his chest.

"The master?"
31st-Dec-2009 07:12 am (UTC)
"Oh yes! You have seen him? It is very important that I find him; he has the worst way of getting into trouble!" She's wringing her hands just a bit, glancing around. "It is not that he is not capable of handling himself- he is! After all, he is very wise and strong! But he needs me!"

How familiar. Kunzite glances slightly away, which may just be the natural motion of rolling his eyes. But he's certain he's never seen a girl dressed like this about the palace, even in the distant past. Clearly, a different world and master.

"Perhaps he has already found trouble without his servant at his side," he suggests, mostly to watch her reaction.
31st-Dec-2009 07:41 am (UTC)
"Oooooh!" One hand moves quickly to her lips, and she nibbles on her nails in obvious worry. "That would not be good at all! Do you- do you really think that it could happen so quickly?"
31st-Dec-2009 07:43 am (UTC)
"Who knows?" the careless rhetorical question has nothing of Jeannie's concern in it.

"Do you fear for his safety, or yours when he has time to punish shirking your duty?"
31st-Dec-2009 07:50 am (UTC)
"For his safety, of course!" The answer is vehement and instantaneous, her eyes wide in surprise that he would even ask. "He is my Master! Without him, I would have no purpose! I could not bear to be without him!"
31st-Dec-2009 07:54 am (UTC)
He could swear he fells physically ill at the thought of such overwhelming naive stupidity. Worthless minion, capable only of bowing and scraping a muttered 'yes master' or almost worse 'yes ma'am' (that red-haired witch hadn't had much trouble with Jadeite and Nephrite, he suspects).

"Disgusting," Kunzite pronounces it.
31st-Dec-2009 07:58 am (UTC)
"Disgusting?" A very confused look crosses her face; clearly, she has no idea why he would say such a thing. "What do you mean?"
31st-Dec-2009 08:03 am (UTC)
"To follow him is admirable," Kunzite concedes. "To do it blindly is folly."

Not that he expects the girl in front of him to understand, from her actions and words so far. She seems... flighty.
31st-Dec-2009 08:07 am (UTC)
"I do not follow him blindly! I will have you know that my loyalty to my Master has been earned time and time again! He is a good Master, who has cared and fought for me."
31st-Dec-2009 08:15 am (UTC)
So she says. Kunzite's lips curve in a small, completely cynical smirk.

"And if that were not the case? What would you do?"
31st-Dec-2009 08:18 am (UTC)
"It does not matter if that were not the case, only that it is. It is all I may do to care for him in return for the many things he has done for me." She is anything if not resolute in her beliefs. Nothing this person says will sway her into anything but thinking she must defend her Master's honor!
31st-Dec-2009 08:22 am (UTC)
The problem is that it reminds him so much of himself, a self he denies and would rather forget entirely, a self that believed that no matter the master's faults, he would become a good and wise king who ruled his people justly and brought them prosperity.

How naive. And he does not like to think of himself as naive. Yet that same good and true master is the one who abandoned them all, allowing everything to be taken away.

"What has he done?" comes the question and like before, it is mild even if not particularly receptive. He understands well the devotion a master deserves who does concern himself with the well-being of his followers. He expects it for himself.
31st-Dec-2009 08:31 am (UTC)
Jeannie is not naive! Really!

"Oh, he has done far more than I can say, only first and foremost being that he rescued me from my bottle! Many, many times he has risked himself for me, to protect me and to avenge me! How can I be anything but loyal to such a Master?!"
31st-Dec-2009 08:39 am (UTC)
Blah blah blah. She makes him want to retch. Kunzite shifts his position slightly, and fixes Jeannie with a decidedly unimpressed expression. "You fail to elaborate," he notes.
31st-Dec-2009 07:02 am (UTC)
Eyebrows arched somewhere in the vicinity of her hairline, the woman who happens to have three tall, dark haired and handsome men says, "Might wanna elaborate just a lil bit, darlin'," quite deadpan.
31st-Dec-2009 07:19 am (UTC)
"Oh, I am sorry! If it will help, I will show you what he looks like!" With a quick motion, she crosses her arms over her chest, bops her head, and blinks. A moment later, she's holding a large, gold framed portrait of said tal, dark haired, and handsome man. "This is he; Anthony Nelson, an astronaut!"
31st-Dec-2009 07:28 am (UTC)
Sounds like (one of) my types, but I'm not sure if I've seen yours.
31st-Dec-2009 07:44 am (UTC)
"Would a picture help?" With a quick nod of her head and a blink, a gold framed portrait appears in her hands.
31st-Dec-2009 07:55 am (UTC)
Nice. Looks like he might be a bit of a square, but that's always changeable.... I haven't seen him around here, though. Sorry. It's a big place, and he might not even be hanging around.
31st-Dec-2009 08:02 am (UTC)
"I see." It's not the most comforting thing to hear, but... she knows that if he truly needs her, he will call. She will content herself with that for the moment. As it is, she looks around curiously again.

"If you will pardon my asking, where are we?"
31st-Dec-2009 08:18 am (UTC)
Multiversal nexus, sweetness, which is why they call it the Nexus. Various worlds, alternate universes, and realms meet here, so people from everywhere wander in all the time. Some of us socialize. I've met a few different versions of me and different versions people I know here, which can be somewhat mindbending.
31st-Dec-2009 08:28 am (UTC)
"Oh my! A multiversal nexus?" A curious look crosses her face, not quite shock, but perhaps surprise. "I have had tell of such things, but never have I encountered one myself. How exciting that must be!"
31st-Dec-2009 08:32 am (UTC)
It can be. Sometimes it's a barrel of laughs. Sometimes, though, you eat the wrong thing or run into the wrong person and get turned into something weird. We call them LOLs, and you'll want to avoid them. Over the years I've hung around here I've been turned into a cat boy and a Barbie doll. At least they're temporary. Though the cat boy one had its fun moments.

Here's a Captain John...and he seems to be under the impression that he knows her.

"Hey, Jeannie!" He gives her a wave. "Happy New Year! And thanks for getting rid of the blue."

Well, here we have someone with dark hair, and if you asked him, he would consider himself reasonably good looking...but tall he is not. Swindle's human form is on the shorter side. "II don't believe so," he says, "But I just arrived myself, for business."

The teenage Asian fellow in the dark clothing eyes the genie with a smile. "Wouldn't anyone with your bottle, be your master?" His fingers itch and twitch, stretching just a little bit. The things he could do with a genie!
