[ York can't remember the last time he was in LA. Couple of years, maybe. Long enough that the city's grown from what he remembers, life returning to those areas destroyed by the kaiju. That's how it always goes, though. Doesn't matter what happens -- people always rebuild.

And if they don't, they make a tourist trap out of it.

Thankfully, he doesn't have to go that far out. There are a couple of bars near the Shatterdome, filled with trainees, kids hoping to become rangers one day. York doesn't have the heart to tell them not to bother. Either they've got what it takes or they don't. And if they do, it's a gamble if they can find someone Drift-compatible anyway.

Compatible. He shoves the word to the back of his mind. Doesn't wanna think about her.

What he does want is a beer. York slides onto a stool at the bar and signals for a drink, turning his head to glance around the bar. Still not used to having to turn his head so much, either. There's a woman on his other side, couple years younger, dogtags around her neck. Shoots her a smile. ]


Whatcha havin'?

Oh, thank god. I was afraid we'd met before and that I was just totally spacing on your name. And face. Which you think I'd remember, what with your whole...uh, face.

[ well that sure is an awkward pause

Buffy lets out an even more awkward laugh to cover it up ]


Tact! It's like a long lost relative. Sydney, huh? I hope you didn't pet the koalas.

[ All right, she has to roll her eyes at the STD remark. ]

What a winning endorsement.

[ Come on, really, dude. Way to set the bar low. Still, she nods with an impressed look, idly twirling the bottle between her fingers on the table. ]

Oh, yeah? So what are you doing in LA then, huh? What, the kaiju down under not big enough for you?

[ Buffy makes an identical face, rolling her eyes in solidarity. ]

Ugh, tell me about it. I don't even have a new jaeger assigned yet, but tomorrow they're putting me through the ropes with whatever candidates they managed to scrape from...whatever barrel they scrape jaeger pilot candidates from. Not so much with the looking forward to it, hence...beer.

[ Buffy raises her eyebrows, cautiously optimistic. She purses her lips in a contemplative pout. ]

And you promise not to make with the weird come-ons? Unless, you know, I ask for 'em.
slayercommathe: (they do it over)

[ All right, all right. The truth is once she got past the kinda sleazy exterior, the guy just oozes likeable charm. Damn it, she wants to like him. Okay, fine. She likes him. Buffy grins, propping her chin up with her elbow resting on the edge of the table. ]

Yeah, that's a neg on the death wishes. But I respect the heart-crossing.

[ She drains the rest of her Tsingtao and sets it down, idly toying with the bottle. ]

So, York Reilly, what do you usually do for fun?

What, does punching things with giant robot fists not count as fun?

[ A little bit of work, a little bit of play, right? Okay, okay, not so much. ]

I dunno, girl stuff, I guess. You know, hanging out with my best friend, watching bad horror flicks while we paint each other's toenails and talk about boys. God, how old am I again?
