... okay, so the thing about taking the first cheap portal she could find was that it meant the travel path kind of sucked. Tara had spent most of the previous day on some planet where the native life form and most of the fellow passengers appeared to be a blob of red jelly.

On the bright side, there'd been a Cinnabon outlet.

She'd made it to New York in one piece, though, and was now resting on a bench, waiting for Jono. The crowds were overwhelming after three months at home, but in a way the distraction was a relief -- it meant she wasn't getting trapped in her own head so much.

Furtively, she checked her phone. No calls from home so far. She wasn't sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing.

It had taken Jono a bit of doing to negotiate a few days of leave from his duties as a man wearing an X on his coat, but considering the fact that the other members of the team seemed to see him mostly as the immature junior mascot one way or another, they'd let him have it. He was expendable, apparently.

He could live with that.

His hand ran over his wrappings one more time as he made his way through the airport. He didn't spend much time in places like these, considering his first time in an airport in America had ended with a mutant cannibal trying to suck the bone marrow out of his skull, but to pick up Tara when she'd seemed so badly to need a place to crash for a few days, he'd made an exception.

//Now there is a sight for sore eyes.// She was the first familiar face from Fandom that he'd seen since he'd handed Joni off to Raven, months and months ago. It reminded him how really out of his depth he was now, away from that place. //Good to see you, luv.//

furnaceface: (Hugs)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Between Fandom and... Weaverville, is it? I'm not terribly surprised, luv. New York is... New York, after all.//

Jono considered that hug solicitation for a second, and then decided, to hell with it, he was wrapped and had at least gotten a fair bit of practise lately in not accidentally lighting people on fire. He stepped into the hug, putting his arms around her.

//How're you holding up, Sunshine?//

furnaceface: (Woe... ish.)

Jono nodded a little. He'd spent a year being warned that he'd lose the most important person in his life someday. It wasn't the same, not by a long shot. Didi had been vivid and brilliant and healthy right up until she'd had to leave, but knowing that it was coming didn't mean that he missed her any less, even now.

//I know, luv.// His hand rubbed a careful little circle on her back. He wasn't exactly good at being comforting, but so help him, he was trying. //It'll sting for a while. It sounds like she was a lady worth missing.//

//I'm sorry I never got th'chance,// Jono replied, his voice a little softer than usual, less invasive, even for one that could only be heard directly in her mind.

He kept up the hug for a moment longer, and then loosened his grip a little. If there was some sort of proper hug-ending protocol in moments like these, he had no idea what it was. Maybe he'd just let her... get it out of her system, or something.

//Is there anything I can get for you?//

Food, whatever. He'd patiently sit there and keep her company while she ate, if she was hungry after her trip.

furnaceface: (Serious)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Well...// Jono tilted his head a little, idly reaching down to straighten the corners of his jacket. Really, he wasn't much of a sightseer, himself. But he could easily rattle off the addresses to all the best nightclubs in the city. //What have you seen already, luv?//

Date: 2011-08-11 06:46 pm (UTC)
furnaceface: (Told you so)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Jono gave his boot a tap against the floor, contemplating that one.

//Tourist traps,// he decided. //Broadway. Lady Liberty. Central Park and th'zoo there. If we're looking for distractions, we can make a go at th'best of them.//

This is what you got when you gave Jono free reign, Tara.

//Don't worry about it,// Jono's shoulders twitched up for a moment as he followed along after her. //I've been busy, but I negotiated for a few days grace before running off on th'next wild adventure. There are far worse places I could be right now than right here, honestly.//

Far, far worse.

//Th'zoo's good. We can find some animal you like. Maybe find out if they'll let us help with a feeding or something if we make big, sad eyes at the keepers.// Jono was rather skilled at the expressive eyes thing. He had faith that he could pull it off. //Or we could just make faces at th'monkeys. I'm not terribly picky either way.//

furnaceface: (Casual duds)

//Bears, hm?// Jono had that look in his eye. The one that suggested that he was actually taking that much into consideration.

It was followed shortly after by that look that suggested that he was rather fond of the limbs that he currently had at his disposal, and wasn't really in any hurry to be rid of any of them.

//I imagine they'll have slightly more friendly ones in th'gift shop.//

Jono was silent for a few steps at hearing that news. On top of everything else, there was that. And he'd always thought that Tara and Kennedy complimented one another beautifully.

//I hadn't heard,// he admitted. //I've been a little out of th'loop for quite some time, now.//

Well over a year, for him. He wasn't even certain anymore just what year it was back on the island. Or what month.

furnaceface: (Kinda down)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Ah. Time differences and stuff.

//I suppose... it's a little different, when yer looking at th'difference between long-distance and completely different timelines,// Jono noted, his own tone carefully soft. //I can see how something like that would... complicate matters, some. You parted on good terms, I hope?//

Sometimes, that was enough.

//That would make th'both of us, luv,// Jono offered. //I send the occasional text when I remember. But I'm shite at writing letters and the internet and I really don't get along.//

Unless it was for Farmville. But even Jono's fake crops had been sorely neglected lately. Possibly because Facebook didn't exist yet, in his particular corner of the multiverse. Alas.

//Life gets in th'way, sometimes. It'll calm down again, sooner or later.//

... Okay, she had him there.

//But where's the fun in that?//

Jono logic, Tara. You'd have a couple of days to get used to it, at least.

//At least at Fandom, for all th'hell that breaks loose, they get it.//

For whatever degree of 'it' you happened to want them to 'get.'

furnaceface: (Looking Around)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//When yer ready, luv,// Jono replied, shrugging. //Time here runs fairly swiftly, too. There isn't any rush, if you'd like a few hours to just unwind, first.//

Jono was a pretty terrible enabler of irresponsible behaviours.
