For scifantisy Brotherhood [Mar. 1st, 2009|09:42 pm]

[mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]

I’ve often wondered if such a thing exists among the Centauri. There are alliances and treaties, oaths that bind people but brotherhood isn’t based in those notions. It is a sense of camaraderie and family aspects built out of emotion not what is best for the house or increasing influence. With the structure of my people I do not think Brotherhood is a common aspect. I’m sure it exists. I can also be certain that if it were discovered that someone would exploit it like they do family ties.

The Narn and to a lesser extent humans are built on the ideals of brotherhood. Friendship can be stronger than the desire for anything else. Not to say that doesn’t happen for Centauri on occasion, but it is far more prevalent among some of the other races.

Sometimes I wonder if it makes them stronger or better in some way. Does it make their race more cohesive and resilient under attack? For the Narn I might suggest this, along with a stubborn inability to believe in loss, has to account for their endurance through time. If the tables were turned I wonder if the Centauri would resist as well. I do not want to find out but speculation never harmed anyone.

Written for abeautifulsiren Takes place two days before this.

It was late in the afternoon when duty allowed Kailin to return to the Estate. After greeting his mother and Deljah he was told his guest had went to the gardens. No one had to tell him where Lyssie had found herself. As expected he found the form standing at the edge of the pond. It was a beautiful spot where the rose garden meandered right up to the pond. Cattails and pond lilies mingled with starlaces which were just beginning to glow in the falling light.

“My lady.” Kailin spoke softly.

Lyssie responded with a single smile over her shoulder. No words were needed. Kailin could feel the happiness she felt without even trying to use his skills.

“It does my hearts well to see you so happy.” Kailin walked up besides her taking in the deep purples and fuchsia that were the sunset in the Davo atmosphere.

Lyssie stood for a moment before leaning her head on his shoulder. “I have never seen colors like that in the sky.”

“Methane in our atmosphere and several other gases not present on Earth produce the colors.” Kailin explained.

Lyssie was listening but her eyes were watching the colors reflect off the water surface. A content feeling settled over her and Kailin wrapped an arm around her waist. It was a nice feeling, a close feeling that Kailin hadn’t had in years. He could feel other things. Lyssie felt safe with him. She felt respected and respected him. It didn’t take listening to her feelings to know. They were readily expressed and projected from her as part of the relaxation she was feeling.

“You should return in the winter. The skies are far more spectacular than this one.” Kailin pulled her a little closer. It wasn’t a conscious choice. It just seemed right.

“I thought your planet was tropical?” She looked up curiously.

“It is but there are variations. Our atmosphere composition changes slightly as the planet comes nearer or farther from the sun.” Kailin was happy just to teach her of his home. Lyssie stared up with the wonder of a child and the happiness reserved for people much closer than they were.

The moment seemed perfect. He’d had few moments like this with anyone. He hadn’t had the time. With service and the estate and all his duties life had been put on hold. Kailin had given up his time for anything to better his people, his family and the life his daughter would have. It was in these moments that he questioned that path. Sometimes he wondered and dreamed about what he had lost in his life and with his wife. He missed her but he knew their time had passed.

“Kailin. Is something wrong?”

“Oh.” Kailin snapped out of it and smiled. “Just memories. Being out here makes me think of all the choices I’ve made in my life. I’m sure many people feel the same when faced with this environment.”

Lyssie nodded and smiled before leaning her head back on his shoulder. Her eyes though were still looking at him. Kailin searched her eyes shortly before he felt something he couldn’t place. It was like a song you could barely remember a friend singing to you once long ago. In all his life he’d never felt such a subtle and consuming pull at his mind. There was something about her that he could not place beyond a need to be closer to her and that he knew her, had known her all his life. The only problem was that he hadn’t known her long at all. Still his senses swirled down that path that she was pulling him on.

He tried briefly to break that connection but as he pulled back he felt isolation and loneliness. Kailin relented and before another heartbeat passed his lips had pressed to hers. He had felt attraction to her but this was something all together different. She’d pulled down his defenses. She would know he was fond of her but this was an action that he couldn’t resist.

His senses came back and he pulled abruptly away. Lyssie was stunned and Kailin felt embarrassed. He searched for words but found none that seemed right. The draw was still there. All he could think of was kissing her again. She was like being in the very presence of pure music that consumed him. He took another step back.

“My apologies. I should go.” With a quick bow and reddened cheeks Kailin all but fled from her presence. He went straight to his quarters and locked himself in. Once there he slumped into the chair and cried. For an empath to break the connection he was starting to feel was more crushing than heartbreak. It was the hurt as if she was miles, light years from here though she was only a moment’s walk away. He hadn’t known this was happening until it had and then it was too late.

Kailin pulled himself together and sat there in the still darkened room trying to close down the place inside she had opened. She was in there now and he tried frantically to close it away out of his mind.

Kailin had given Lyssie the two days she asked for to adjust to Centauri customs. He had allowed her to stay at the estate while he handled some affairs that had been waiting. The Tyree Estate was by no means the largest on Davo. For their middle nobility ranking however it was large. The house was lavish. With his mother's love for trade they had acquired many artifacts and art works over the years. That was only added by Deljah's painting and her flower gardens. Kailin had yet to take her to the ocean or to see their Dromo.

They had shared several meals. Deljah and Adira were always polite. Palen, Kailin's mother, was shrewd and asked too many questions but that was her way. Kailin had prepared Lyssie for that as much as possible. Today they had set aside for the first day out in the city and a trip to the ocean late in the afternoon.

Kailin was out of his military uniform in and in a more comfortable dress suit. It was still embroidered and in neutral gray and earth tones but it was his style to not be as flamboyant as many of his people.

Travel for Lyssie [Jan. 20th, 2009|10:27 pm]

Kailin had kept his promise. Once his duties were through he packed a few items in his Kutari and headed back to Earth at the appointed time. With the ship cloaked he landed at their meeting place and exited the ship to wait for Lyssie. It had been a long time since he'd traveled with anyone. Longer still since he'd had female company aboard his ship. As was the way with the Centauri rumors had already started about the mystery girl. He wondered if he should warn her of the way his people were but he assumed, rightly so, that none would dare say anything to offend their commander's guest. Formality often removed the need for many things this would be one of them.

As he waited he knew her quarters were being prepared. Though it was a military vessel he had time to acquire fine blue silks to outfit her bedchamber as well as some human food in case she didn't like the usual Centauri fare. It would be good to go home and see his mother and daughter. Perhaps Adira would be there as well. His mind wandered while he stood waiting but that was usual when he was given free time or when any Centauri was given free time for that matter.

[Current Location |LA Museum of Art]
[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

With his Kutari fighter here on Earth a trip to the other coast was hardly worth as much worry as a ride across town. He had read about it in the newspaper and the title alone had caught his interests. “The History of Swords and Swordfighting” was a traveling display out at the LA museum of Art. Kailin couldn’t resist. Sword fighting was such an integral part of his culture that he wanted to see what it meant to humans over their history.

A few hours later he was in LA with the fighter stowed and at the museum. He wander through some of the art exhibits on his way to the swords. Once there he slowed his pace scrutinizing each one for twenty minutes or more. The craftsmen ship was quite fascinating to his trained eyes. He was however ignoring the stares and comments. He was quite used to human reaction to his appearance by now.
