A young man leans against the sign. He's quite normal looking aside from the long, blue tail with a spaded tip that swishes behind him. He thinks of his question.

"Do you have any features that make you stand out from everyone else? Do you consider them a blessing or a curse? If a curse, do you try to hide it and if so, how?"

"My green hair used to be pretty rare," a woman replies from nearby. He'll notice that a lot of things about her - from her hair to her lip stick to her clothes - are in various shades of green. "Until green hair color became somewhat popular anyway. My foster parents used to think of it as a curse, not so much myself." She paused. "Okay, maybe I thought it was a bit of a curse at the beginning, but hiding it became more of a curse than keeping it."

"Really? Odd. I think green is a lovely color and it seems to flatter you."

Lorna Dane smiles at the man. She doesn't seem at all fazed by the fact that he has a sharp, pointy tail. "Thank you," she says, watching the tail with interest. "How about you? Is the tail a blessing or a curse? A mix of both, maybe?"
5th-Mar-2010 08:59 pm (UTC)
"It IS both actually. As it's prehensile it's very useful, but unlike my wings, it's harder to hide."
5th-Mar-2010 09:08 pm (UTC)
"Which would explain why I don't see the wings," Lorna says amiably. "A friend of mine as a tail like that. Another friend of mine actually has wings, come to think of it." She pauses. "I actually know a couple of people with wings. Hrmm. Anyway, the one with the tail, he uses something called an image inducer to, er, induce the image of someone over him. To help him hide the tail. And his blue fur. Usually, it's Errol Flynn, actually."

"That sounds like an interesting invention. Sometimes I find if I wear loose enough pants I can wrap it down and around my leg. I'm thankful I don't have blue fur " he offers his hand. "I'm Lucas."
5th-Mar-2010 09:27 pm (UTC)
Lorna accepts his hand, shaking it with a pleasantly firm grip. "Lorna," she says. "The blue fur used to be problem for my friend, but much like me, he's grown into it. I don't imagine it'd be comfortable to have your tail stuck in one position all day though."
5th-Mar-2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
"No." He laughs. "Because it cramps up and then it starts to twitch and it looks like my pants are alive."
5th-Mar-2010 09:57 pm (UTC)
Lorna laughs at the image of that. "People must either be really excited or really frightened by that."

"Usually confused."

I don't stand out quite so much where I live now, but I got a lot of attention being a tall, German, natural redhead when I lived in Japan. I enjoyed the attention.

::Schuldig is also a telepath, but most people have no idea.::

"Oh yes. I can see how you would stand out there physically."
6th-Mar-2010 05:01 am (UTC)
Besides, I was working as a bodyguard at the time, so it was a kind of deterrent. Nobody missed seeing me when I was out protecting our client. ::Unless Schuldig was trying to be sneaky and go around without attention, in which case nobody saw him until it was too late.::

"That IS true I suppose. Most people avoid things that are different, at least at first."

Ben is walking around in civvies at the moment. Dark blue hoodie and black cargo pants. He is pasty white with messy black hair. Odd black veins peek up around his neck and a few on his cheeks and forehead.

"I hide the pale complexion and vein thing by going more pale and kinda going with the goth look. Easier that way."
6th-Mar-2010 11:47 am (UTC)
"Are you ill or something? Or is that your ordinary appearance?"
6th-Mar-2010 05:48 pm (UTC)
"Dying. My cells are breaking down." He shrugs.
6th-Mar-2010 08:09 pm (UTC)
"Oh.. I'm sorry. That's unfortunate. Is it incurable?"
6th-Mar-2010 08:11 pm (UTC)
"I'm looking into it. Planning for it being that way but hoping I can find something."
6th-Mar-2010 08:16 pm (UTC)
"Well I hope that you do. You look quite young. I hate to see people die early."
6th-Mar-2010 08:19 pm (UTC)
"Heh. I'm a clone. I look a LOT older than I really am. But I do go with the fact I'm in my late teens early twenties."
6th-Mar-2010 08:20 pm (UTC)
"Even more reason to hope for your recovery."
7th-Mar-2010 01:18 am (UTC)
"Thanks." He smiles and nods.
6th-Mar-2010 08:39 pm (UTC)
"I AM TOLD MY MOUNTAIN RANGES ARE MOST IMPRESSIVE."

"THERE IS ALSO THE FACT THAT I AM A SENTIENT PLANET."
6th-Mar-2010 08:42 pm (UTC)
"Well........ that's certainly a way to stand out."

Sarah eyes the tail for a moment before speaking.

"Not really. My eyes change color, but that's about it. It's sometimes a curse because they change to an ember color when I'm angry and that tends to scare a lot of people away. It also happens at random sometimes and it's not a great thing when you're having a casual conversation with someone."
8th-Mar-2010 07:24 am (UTC)
He smiles. "That doesn't sound so bad. Luckily mine only change when I'm angry."
8th-Mar-2010 09:48 am (UTC)
"It isn't that bad. Just a nuisance." She smiles, tucking a strand of hair back. "What color do yours change to?"
8th-Mar-2010 11:27 am (UTC)
"Blood red at first, then the angrier I get, they burn like hellfire."

He offers his hand. "I'm Lucas"
8th-Mar-2010 03:23 pm (UTC)
She takes the offered hand, gently. "I'm Sarah. Nice to meet you, Lucas."
8th-Mar-2010 03:25 pm (UTC)
"The pleasure is mine. You're very lovely." He inclines his head as he draws his hand back after shaking.
8th-Mar-2010 03:31 pm (UTC)
She smiles, quite possibly blushing a bit. "Thank you. That's very sweet of you to say."
8th-Mar-2010 04:15 pm (UTC)
"I'm certain you hear it often." He smiles.
8th-Mar-2010 04:21 pm (UTC)
"Nothing as sweet as how you said it though." Internally, she is cursing at her human side for making her act so shy right now. "Uh, I noticed your tail. I'm assuming you're not full human at least, right?"
8th-Mar-2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
"How do you usually hear it?" He chuckles.

"Not even partially human." He said, tail swishing. "I'm half angel and half demon, incubus to be exact as mother was a succubus."
8th-Mar-2010 05:14 pm (UTC)
"Well, usually it's 'Hey baby. You're hot'." She giggles.

She perks when she hears the word succubus. "Well, isn't that a coincidence. My mother was one too. My father was human." She leans in just a bit. "So, that means you've got the good and bad, hm?" Smirk.
8th-Mar-2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
"You're part succubus as well? Wow. You're the first I've met."

He returns the smirk. "Oh yes, I've got a lot of the bad."
8th-Mar-2010 05:25 pm (UTC)
"Likewise, gorgeous."

Her smirk widens. "Maybe I'll have to see just how much of the bad you got sometime."
8th-Mar-2010 06:33 pm (UTC)
"Anytime, my lovely. Though being part human you may be a little too fragile for just how bad I can be." More smirking.
8th-Mar-2010 06:44 pm (UTC)
"I may be part human, but I can tell you I am a lot tougher than I look, gorgeous."

She continues smirking, giving a glance at her watch. "So, anytime right? Is now a good time?"
8th-Mar-2010 06:54 pm (UTC)
He gives the only sane answer. "Your place or mine?"
8th-Mar-2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
"Yours." She says simply.
8th-Mar-2010 08:24 pm (UTC)
"Follow me." He takes her hand and leads her from the Nexus.
