[Open] Breakfast At Bacon
« on: February 13, 2019, 12:18:17 PM »
It was early morning at Beacon with a winter chill in the air, the grounds sparsely populated by students who were on their own way to the various sections of the Academy or heading towards the main city.  Hanging around the sparring area after walking from the dorms, Aoife would be a clothed and armoured twirling her spear around absentmindedly as she held a bacon sandwich in her mouth. Launching the weapon up into the air like a baton, she'd grab hold of the sandwich to take a large chunk out and start chewing it. Swallowing with a little effort as it gets stuck, she'd then grab the spear and plant it tip first into the ground, speaking to the Panda teammate who had made the sandwich, she'd go,  "You know, you're not entirely terrible at making these. I'd probably make better if I put effort into it, but these will pass."
After the rather haughty remark, she'd go to kick the spear out of the ground and upwards, moving her hand down the shaft to start spinning and twirling it again, shoving the sandwich back into her mouth so she had both hands available, every so often her mouth moving in an instant to acquire a better grip of the sandwich and to positively inhale it so she could prepare for another large chomp.

Ayburn allowed his eyes to wander over the mulling cold students of the Beacon grounds. Absentmindedly jumping from person to person in an ease of people watching, Ayburn stood in his academy uniform like most of the people his eyes danced past, only with his ever present hoodie poking out from underneath the blazer. His watching didn’t last too long before his faunus friend next to him piped up. He gave a quick glance to her as she spoke, letting eyebrow raising as the words ran on. The words put a smirk on his face as he responded in kind,
            "You know, if I heard that right, that was /almost/ a compliment." with a casual laugh and tone that only comes between teasing friends. He took a bite of his own sandwich and continued, mouth still full, "- A compliment laced with barbed wire over a spit roast but a compliment nevertheless."
            To emphasise his joke he gave a small nudge of an elbow, and a smirk that she probably knew too well after these two years or harassment sent his way. “Besides, I knew you couldn’t resist bacon.” He added his jovial moment falling away from something a touch more sincere as his eyes wandered over various things in the wandering mass of peoples. Giving minor expressions of curiosity at various weapons and armour people took in and out of the training grounds in small fleeting moments. He was still mesmerized as his first days at Beacon by the various bits of creativity that appeared in the academy. Alas his return to serenity didn’t last long as he tore his attention back to his teammate.

"I can make it a literal barbed wire and spit roast. Just get me the wire." Was a rather expected response, no actual malice in the retort though that would chiefly been known as he had dealt with her for two years. "You're learning. You didn't make a fish reference, you bamboo eater."  Stopping to play with the spear once again so she could devour another good portion of the sandwich, she'd adjust her top to allow more airflow, letting out a rather exasperated "It's too hot. Can you have a good semblance? Like making a permanent blizzard or something? I mean. Sure, it isn't fart smells like a certain lazy person. But still. It has like no good usages, except gathering ice. But I don't think there's any in the immediate vicinity." 

Letting out a loud groan, she'd punctuate it with a flash of semblance, emitting a few centimeters worth of flame from her lips to give the impression of breathing fire. "Wait. Do you have Ice rounds? Can you like shoot at something and get me some ice for me to chomp on?"  Finally turning her attention to him and not resuming her baton act, she'd look at him expectantly, eyes periodically flashing away to keep check of anything moving in their general vicinity to register what it was, before turning back.

“Bamboo eater, huh? You’re running out of panda jokes.” He laughed whilst rolling his eyes and removing his bag off of his back. Rifling through it as he added, “I think I have a vial of left over ice dust, Give me a momento.”, upon registering her request.
            It took him a moment or two but his rifling in his bag payed off. Finding the half empty vial hidden at the bottom of his bag, hidden away as to not go off accidentally as he wandered around campus… That had happened more than enough times to him and others. After the first flame vial was left unrestrained he learnt his lesson. One flaming backpack, and an entire hundred foot radius of people stopping their conversation to look your way, was one too many in Ayburns book. So the fact that it happened two more times to him in his first year was a real kicker. He wondered if Aoife and the rest of his friends remembered those incidents in their first year for a moment as he took the vial out.
            Then with a quick pour of some of the dust he made a couple ice cubed sized bits off ice in his palm, “Here you go, some ice for you to chew on.” Ayburn passed it over with a small smile. “Soooo~ what’s with the full get up? Training, or are you taking our Grimm tuition to heart?” He asked before going into a quick (and rather loud) imitation of one of their ‘Grimm studies’ lecturers, ”Students remember nevermores can strike from anywhere at any time and usually when you’re already dealing with hordes of Grimm already, so always be ready!”... It wasn’t a horrible impression, but it sure neded work, though it left him with that goofy grin of his returning in full. Along with a couple wandering eyes shooting their way for a second.
