[Open, Video]

[She got caught by the women's council, near the end. They dragged her off when she claimed to have no family to be returned to, interred her in a tiny church with other troublesome, unmarried young ladies. Most of them had had a child out of wedlock. They did laundry together, work and penance, the heavy lye soap burning their hands hour by hour. Mira could have swaggered out bloody, but she didn't - something about the mumbled prayers and the delicate stained glass windows and the blunt, human directness of it, the brusque cruelty and judgement appealed to her. Their God was hypocritical and describable; the things he required of her were concrete and impersonal. It didn't matter that she was no one, in the cloister - all of them were no one, were discards, and they showed her how to do the work and took her unhesitatingly in. She enjoyed it, in her way, listened to the other women talk about their children, taught one how to break her boyfriend's wrist the next time he came home drunk. And she stayed until the barge caught her up again.

She's in the chapel now, dull and bare by comparison, not gaudy morbid stories or old ash marks on squat brick. She rolls a candle from one hand to the other. She has kept to herself, so far, has made no announcements or introductions, done nothing to draw undue attention since the nature of this place was explained to her. She was content with that state of affairs. But she is curious, now.]


How many of us are religious?


[Spam, for Harvey Two-Face]

[Several days after the fair, Mira shows up at his door, tense and eager. She's put it off - she's nervous, if she's honest, because she doesn't know how to do this, and she can't trust her own memory. She thinks he was crazy, thinks he responded the same way she did, but what if she's wrong? What if smashing his jaw with a billiard ball was too far?

At least she has an excuse to be here. She has presents.]

There's a few. Technically, I'm a priestess meself, but that's... well, that's complicated.

Sisterhood of Karn. There weren't really actual gods involved, as such; more like the exiled remnants of a ruling class that didn't rule any more.

Same shape as religion, though. Chanting and mysticism and all that.

[He's been watching her. Almost every public appearance, definitely every network appearance, he's been watching. He's determined who she's not - which doesn't make him any more comfortable around her, but it makes it possible to be nearby, at least.]

[Which he is now, slinking into the chapel like a guilty animal and sitting a few pews back from her. He kicks his feet up onto the back of the one in front of him and stares at the ceiling, fiddling on his communicator as if he's all alone.]

[Then he sends:]


Not me.
patheticvillain: (ʭ have it all)

[personal profile] patheticvillain 2013-12-05 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
[Now he watches the back of her head - just for a second, until the ceiling draws his attention again. He sighs heavily, yawns.]

Because gods are douchebags. Fuck them. They don't deserve my belief.
