Raven missed the rooftop of the dorms back in Fandom, but she'd found an adequate replacement at Karla's estate. Wrapped in her cloak and staring up at the stars or out at the lights of the city, it almost felt like she was back to a time when life was simpler. Well, mostly.

She'd been on edge for weeks now, her emotional state veering between highs and lows. She hadn't felt this out of control in awhile, since the war had ended. She knew she should go see Dr. Lecter again, but while he wasn't afraid of bumping into her demon side, she worried what she might do. She'd used her gifts to kill again, had tapped deep into the powers her father had bestowed upon herself and her brothers. Except this time it hadn't made her sick to do it, and she had a feeling that was a bad sign.

She'd retreated to the roof to try to put a little distance between her and the emotions around her. Centering herself, however, wasn't happening. Brooding? Perhaps.

To say that Jono sent a lot of time just sitting quietly on the roof these days would be somewhat inaccurate. Jono spent most of his time in Glacia running around, working too bloody hard to be considered healthy, and that was how he wanted it. But when there was a lull, yes, he'd drag his sorry self up to the roof, and he'd even bring a kitten along with him when he did so.

Joni therapy was still the very best therapy.

He paused once he stepped outside, tilting his head a little at the familiar figure that was already sitting out here. And then he gave his shoulders a little shrug and walked over to stand nearby. He wouldn't presume it was okay to sit down next to her, not just yet, but he did want to at least make his presence known.

//Evening, luv,// he said, one hand reaching down to scratch Joni behind the ear as she peered out from his jacket pocket. He was wearing his old long coat, repurposed by one of Momoko's friends so that it would fit him again. He liked it more than he'd care to admit, if only because the cat could fit quite comfortably in its pockets. //Is this a private roof party, or would you mind some company tonight?//

//Well, then it's fortunate I didn't come up here looking for company,// Jono replied, taking note of that smile that fell more than a little short. He thought he knew that feeling, at least a little. He'd been fairly exhausted, lately. //Hold this for a moment?//

Yes, he was already playing dirty and offering her the cat. So that he wouldn't sit on her, of course.

//She's been getting along quite well around here,// Jono shared, sitting himself down beside Raven and letting her cuddle the cat for a while. //Plenty of drapery to climb and feet to trip up. It's as though they built the estate with her in mind, really.//

Joni was already working her way up to a mighty little purr. Raven was one of her favourites, after all.

//The staff would call it 'getting in the way,' but don't let that fool you. Joni knows it's really actually 'making friends.'//

//Tired,// Jono admitted with a shrug. //It's been a hectic week. Julian tapped me in a few days back to deal with some damage control on the security front, and then there was Yllestad directly afterwards.//

There was a twist of discomfort as he mentioned the first, and a general wash of exhaustion as he moved on to the second. He was about ready for the week to be through.

//Pretty sure I volunteered to go on some sort of rescue mission with an old student of mine, on top of that. I'll learn to pace myself one of these days. Eventually.//

//Lord, I can't remember the last time I had a vacation that I actually treated as one,// Jono admitted, shaking his head a little, bemused. //But the timing's off, now. I'm running to the island with Karla on her teaching days, and we're going to need extra security around the Estate for a while. I'm pulling extra shifts until we can be absolutely certain the grounds are secure.//

Most of them were spent thumping his forehead against a wall while he did psionic patrols looking for people who didn't belong, granted, but spreading his consciousness that thin for so long at a time was exhausting. For the first time in a long while, he'd been sleeping like the dead when his shifts were through.

//You could use one yourself, though. You've seemed on eggshells since the carnival.//

Jono was going to be needing that back when you were done with it, Raven.

//Want to talk about it, luv?//

Normally, he wouldn't have blinked at finding out that the people who tried to kill Karla were dead. But when he'd heard that it was Raven who had killed them...

Well, he'd been worried lately, himself. He remembered what she'd done to the man who had hurt him and started the witchblood fire, after all. He could just imagine how somebody who hurt Karla would suffer.

//I know there were no survivors,// Jono replied, eyes turned out toward the lights of the city. //Morton gave Julian and I the run-down when we finally made it back to Sidra. At best guess, I'd have to say you did almost the same as you did to that other one, that bastard who lit the fires.//

He was carefully withholding judgment at the moment. He hadn't been there, maybe he was mistaken. And besides, he wanted to hear it in Raven's own words.

After the assassination attempt, Hannibal had half-expected Raven to call him to work through her guilt about killing again. That she hadn't could possibly be taken as a good sign...if he didn't know her rather better than that by now.

So, after giving her a bit of time, he was calling her. Like the good friend/therapist/encourager-to-homicide that he was.

ONLY IF SHE GAVE UP THE GUILT.

"Hello, Raven." Hannibal smiled so it would come through in his voice. "How are you doing?"

From: [personal profile] sharp_as_knives
"I heard about the attempt," Hannibal answered gravely. "How long has it been there?" Roughly double the time, he knew, but it never hurt to ask for specifics. "Has there been any progress made towards proving who was behind it?"

"As do I, although I know much less of Glacia's politics." Hannibal paused.

"Do you want to speak about it?" he asked calmly.

"Why?" Hannibal asked. "Because speaking of it makes it more real? Or because you're afraid of being judged?"

"Tell me about not doing it, then," Hannibal suggested. "What would have happened if you hadn't?"
