yesimagenius: (I like suckers they help me think)
[personal profile] yesimagenius
[Take a geek genius with a Ph.D in Engingeering and too much time on his hands, add some snow and what do you get? The Fortress of Solitude if Reid has his way. He's out in the show with a spray bottle of water, a rectangular tupperware container, an edge for painting and a tape measure. Reid even has blue prints for this mammoth project. He's crawling around kind of awkwardly with a sucker in his mouth, alternately hobbling or using his cane. He's dressed in jeans, a big coat, Jayne Cobb style hat and gloves. He'd happily welcome company or help to build his fort. The best thing about this cold? His leg is numb. No temptation to take painkillers at all.]

[Ryohei's been outside running around in the snow, because he has enough energy for about twelve people. He notices Reid from some distance away and ambles over to see what he's working on.]

Wow... That looks complicated to the extreme!

[Reid looks up from his work, beaming a smile at Ryohei]

N-not really. I've got the plans all laid out and I'm p-pretty sure that as long as the temperature doesn't go up I can do a small replica.

[Ryohei smiled back and came closer.]

What're you building, anyway?

Date: 2009-11-19 11:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
Th-the Fortress of Solitude.

From: [identity profile] kyokugen-sun.livejournal.com
Oh, like from Superman?

[Ryohei eyes Reid's cane, and cocks his head a little before looking at the man's face again.]

Want some help?

[Helena walks up a curiously, dressed in her wool jacket, multiple layers of shirts/pants/shorts, and big boots. A thick scarf is also hanging from her neck She has a steaming mug of hot chocolate which she wraps her hands around, grateful for the warmth it gives.]

Snow fort? Looks like a pretty big project.

[Reid looks up at her smiling. He's currently spraying one of the half finished walls with water and smoothing over it.]

I d-don't have anything else to do here. Want to help?

From: [identity profile] helena-campbell.livejournal.com
[She had been looking at his blueprints, pretending to understand them. She smiled back at him.]

M-me? I think I'd make a mess of things... [She glances back to the blueprints.] But if you'd like help, I'd be happy to.

Date: 2009-11-19 11:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
Y-yeah. I'd like help.

[He hands her a metal dustpan then gets up and measures a distance from where the half a wall he's working on ends. He scuffs his foot in the snow.]

I sh-should have brought paint or some water with food coloring out here. An-anyway just add onto this wall all the way to this point. No more than two feet high. I'll come along behind you and square it up then ice it over.

[Okay, so maybe he might have told Arland that playing around in the snow was a waste of time just yesterday, but it was kind of hard to ignore the giant ice fortress currently under construction. The knight watched for awhile before making his approach.]

...What is that?

From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
{Reid looks up, beaming a smile at the new arrival. He figures the snow fort part is obvious so he gives the less obvious answer]

The Fortress of Solitude.

From: [identity profile] seekthebird.livejournal.com
...Right. [This means nothing to him.

But he hangs around to watch anyway, seemingly unbothered by the cold even in his metal armour.
] That's quite an elaborate design for something that's only going to melt in a few months.

Date: 2009-11-20 02:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Reid shrugs in response]

It doesn't matter if it melts tomorrow. It's something I designed and built. That's the f-fun part of it.

[observe an Anya in her natural habitat! see how she sneaks up behind the construction and lobs a snowball in the direction of you head.]

From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Reid is busy with the fort so the snowball hits him square in the head]

Hey!

[He rubs his head and turns, looking for the assailant. When he sees her he grins and leans down to scoop up some snow. He's been working for a while. He makes a snowball and throws it toward Anya. He's not the greatest at stuff like this though.]

[no he isn't, and she's easily able to duck it. while rolling up her next set of ammunition she tosses out some talk.]

Now I see why you need such a sturdy fort.

Re: [action]

Date: 2009-11-20 03:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Reid crouches down and starts rolling up another snowball]

Doesn't do any good to f-fire ammunition if it doesn't reach it's target.

[Of course he's really not doing any hitting of his own but he's having fun anyway]

From: [identity profile] meddling-mage.livejournal.com
[Snow was not unusual to Jace, but it was a welcome change. The mage wandered aimlessly through the drifts, his eyes fixed on the grey sky. As his gaze wanders downward he can't help but spot the massive undertaking of snow construction. Intregued he wanders closer. He recognizes Reid as the stuttering man who'd politely replied to his questions on questionable English.]

Quite an undertaking. Most impressive. What is it meant to be when it is complete?

Date: 2009-11-20 01:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Reid looks over to Jace and smiles]

H-hey. Uhm...I don't kn-know. I hope by tomorrow. I've got all day to work on it.
From: [identity profile] meddling-mage.livejournal.com
[Jace nods.]

Again, impressive, but I think you misheard me. What is it going to BE?
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
Oh!

[Well now Reid is just embarrassed. That makes his little twitching worse. Now he's tucking his hair underneath his cap a little and rubbing his eyes. He clears his throat and looks at the fort]

Uhm...it's th-the Fortress of S-solitude. From Superman. B-basically a snow fort.

[Faith's been watching for a little bit while she sits to the side, bundled lightly and working toward finishing off the pack of cigarettes that had traveled her with her. She briskly grinds out the butt before making her way toward the structure.]

Reid, right?

Date: 2009-11-20 03:47 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Reid was content to work while she watched. He knows that you don't approached caged animals. You let them come to you. Besides, Faith--he thinks--is the kind of girl that mocks guys like him for doing things like building a Fortress of Solitude. He looks up a bit when she comes over but doesn't really stop working.]

Y-yeah. Hi, Faith.

commarogue: ([neutral] quiet time is the worst)
From: [personal profile] commarogue
Hey.

[She's appraising the fort, recalling memories from a long time ago to compare to it. After a few seconds, she gives a small nod toward it.]

Nice fort. Need a hand?

Date: 2009-11-20 04:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yes-imagenius.livejournal.com
[Oh she gets a big, dorky smile. Pretty girls don't usually offer to help build the Fortress of Solitude]

Th-thanks. Y-yeah. De-def-definitely.

[He pulled out a metal dust pan and handed it to her then showed her the plans.]

Th-the walls are all going to be four foot high so that you can still stand up and pelt people but they're plenty tall enough to take cover behind. Over here I'm going to do an inner wall. Just in case they get over the outer wall. We can s-start on that.
