Vanilla #30, FotD and Pocky

Author: Regret
Challenge: Vanilla #30: Cloud / stargazing; FotD: Aeromancy
Extras: Pocky
Rating: G
Word Count: 100
Story: Arkadian
Summary: A little cloudgazing beneath the virtual clouds.
Notes: These characters are a little like my comfort blanket... if you can call a trigger-happy agent and an AI comforting. :P

The clouds scudded across the vivid sky, reflected in her eyes. "That one looks like a shotgun."

Beside her, the man smiled up; under his green gaze, the shape subtly shifted. It even sprouted a trigger.

She frowned. "That's cheating, Maxim."

"It's not," he grinned, but relented. The cloud resumed its original shape. "What else do you see?"

There was a myriad of fluffy shapes above her. They didn't interest her; she rolled over and smiled at him. "I see the future."

"Aeromancy? But they're not real, you know. Just my imaging software."

"I don't mean the clouds, you idiot."

LOL! Great last line! I guess in that environment they could make the clouds spell out any future they wanted :)

Maxim's the kind of guy who'd make the future involve... llamas and jam or something, given half the chance. XD;;

Haha, this is so cute. Virtual clouds FTW ;) I'm amused how one of them thought one of the clouds was a shotgun XDDDD

I'm glad you think so~ XD Aah, Kse (the woman) has the knack of seeing the most dangerous things imaginable in the most innocent of shapes. XD;; She's a wee bit... obsessed...

Awww, those two are cute! And okay, trigger-happy slash not human, depending on which one you're talking about, but cute all the same. I can see why you like them. :D

Heee, they're one of my two favourite couples in my head (oddly, both are in the Arkadian stories...). It's the first time I've written them both in... oh gods, three years now? They cropped up during NaNoWriMo and refused to leave (which is a bit worrying).

I may have to write more... :3 Mostly because they've now camped out in my head and Maxim's picking a fight with AI-skeptic Arkadiy... aaargh

I'm really glad you enjoyed it! *posting random pet projects from at least halfway through a plot feels a bit weird...*

Hey! Cheating is no fair ;)

I like the dialogue in this!

Kse and Maxim are really some of my favourites for writing the dialogue for. >_> Whenever I write, they just seem to bicker all the time. XD;;

Hehe, I'm not sure he sees it as cheating; he's not always got a grip on this 'morality' thing, both big and small things... XD;;;
