you're a terrible human being. your point?

WHO: the other man [personal profile] ioudas & the poor friend in the middle [personal profile] professorlionface
WHERE: cross' apartment
WHEN: sometime after this incident
WARNINGS: it's cross.
SUMMARY: lucy got some 'esplanin' to do about wrecking a marriage.
FORMAT: quick to start!

[Bad username or unknown identity: look, i was drunk, it was dark, and she was hot.]

(Cross often wondered why it seemed that trouble followed him everywhere. He really had no excuse, there was nothing going on here that required him to do the things he'd usually do back home, but still. He sighs, already drinking heavily as he always does before any serious conversation. Either Lilian would get here before Hank did and he'd have to sober up for her and leave Hank out in the cold, or he'd actually have to have this conversation.

As much as he didn't want to admit it, it was probably time that he packed up and disappeared. A year had passed and it was more than acceptable that he had left it in a mess. It was just habit after all.

Argh, where was the Earl when you needed him to fuck things so much that his own messes paled in comparison.
)
professorlionface: (I'm hardly impressed.)

[It was Hank first, unfortunately. He doesn't bother knocking, just throwing the door open and slamming it behind him, his wide shoulders hunched behind him. He looks none too happy.]

The two of you were friends before this. Somehow you managed to leave that part out before! [And somehow Hank had missed it, between prison and NOHoPE and the goodwill tour. He had been too busy to deal with affairs in his own house, and now the disrepair is coming back to haunt him.

[Hank claps his hands together with a facetious smile.]

Why, thank you, Cross! I thank I may do just that. [The smile falls back into a sneer.]

But no, somehow you missed mentioning that little tidbit, or the fact that you asked his permission over text when he'd specifically asked you not to.

I want the full story with no artifice. Now.
professorlionface: (Someone voted down my Reddit posting.)

[He stands there a moment, reading the conversation and slowly deflating. This is why he has so much trouble choosing sides. One the one hand, Cross being completely socially inept, and on the other Madison getting furious about things no one was actually aware of. The only involved person who hasn't talked his ear off about this is the one central to it. Somehow he doesn't feel as right bothering her about it, they aren't exactly close.

He's quiet for a bit after Cross finishes speaking, just continuing to read.
]

And he certainly has nothing kind to say about her for it.

[He's going to have a massive headache tonight, he's decided. He takes the glass Cross poured for him and downs it all in one gulp.]
professorlionface: (So frustrating!)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-10 10:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hank doesn't even dignify the suggestion with a response, focusing more on the previous line.]

She has everything to do with it! But both of you treat her like she's just some...nonentity in this whole affair, like it's simply you and him and who knows what caused it!

Everything's been left raw and openly bleeding, and I can't do anything to suture it.

[He slumps into the couch, leaning forward with his hand on the armrest. He looks a bit intense, maybe slightly brooding.] I'm worried, Cross.
professorlionface: (Time takes its toll on all of us.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-12 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
I have heard how he talks about her. I don't know if it's bitterness over the separation or an attitude that led to it, but he talks about her like she's still dead, and all that's left is a construct that should have no desire left but to facilitate his happiness!

[He lets out a sigh and cradles his head in one large hand.] I'm afraid he may be losing it.
professorlionface: (Too much right now.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-13 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Which one are you referring to? He might have two such women.

[He supposes he can depend on Danger, if anyone's to be watching Madison. Hank holds out his empty glass, a little disappointed that the wine isn't as stiff as he'd like it right now.]
professorlionface: (You're sure about that?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-15 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Glass is still empty. He gets up with a huff and pours himself a refill.]

Well, she chose you, didn't she?
professorlionface: (All the way up there?)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-17 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
[There are worse things to be than the best choice.]

Well, at least partly, but not as much as he thinks it is.

If you aren't certain, you could always ask her. But you'd be too afraid of looking needy, wouldn't you?

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-19 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
Or, despite how hard you work to promote the impression otherwise, I don't think you're quite as cold as you like to present yourself as.

[He could use the example of Lenalee, but he takes for granted that one should already be in mind without being invoked.]

Yes, perfectly noble and selfless. That sounds just like the Cross Marian I know.

No, he's just partly noble and a bit selfless, but he wouldn't admit it so readily.
professorlionface: (I'm quite sure.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-21 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hank chuckles and passes him the wine bottle, taking a sip from his own glass.]

Probably because you're being so obvious about it. "Methinks the lady doth protest too much" and all.
professorlionface: (So it would seem.)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-22 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
[He catches it, still grinning as he fusses with the cork.]

Let's start with something true. [Like, for instance, "I'm gaga over this girl and I'm afraid she doesn't feel the same!"]
professorlionface: (pic#3702035)

[personal profile] professorlionface 2013-02-22 06:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[He pops out the cork and refreshes his glass, but sets it to the side, steepling his fingers and looking straight at Cross.]

This is what it all comes down to, what started all of this. You and her, Madison and her, you and Madison. Only one of these relationships is still intact, and that makes it worth talking about.

What you're telling me now is that you like her more than you let on. But, of course, because you aren't about to let that on, or do something and open and sensible as talk about your relationship with her, you're afraid her affections aren't as strong.

[Now, he takes his glass, leaning back on the sofa and taking a self-satisfied sip.] So, the question we're left with, is this more about your fear or her affection?
