Mouth: *gnaws on you*
Mouth: o.o *cowers*
Mouth: *watches respectfully* Is there anything I can do for you lord?
Grima: ...after what else you've done for me, no.
Mouth: *tries to hide a crushed look* ...I'm sorry.
Grima: *mutters* Explaining this to Erendis will be fun.
Mouth: *waits uncomprehending* ...could you at least clarifiy your new expectation of me.
Grima: just behave.
Mouth: *eyebrow furrow* You were upset when I behaved last night.
Mouth: *takes Grima's hand and plays with his fingers* What more do you want of me?
Grima: er...*stares at Mouth* ...stay away from children
Mouth: *perpexed look* Certainly. That should be simple. *smiles and steps closer*
Grima: okay, so maybe this is an improvement
Mouth: *tilts head and smiles*
Grima: >.> what?
Mouth: *pets carefully and purposefully dosn't kiss*
Grima: *sits down and tries to think of a solution*
Mouth: *sits down next to him and waits expectantly*
Grima: er. Avoid my wife too, while you're at it.
Mouth: What does your wife look like?
Grima: Dark hair. Beautiful. *waves hand* tallish.
Mouth: Of course *cautiously drapes himself on grima*
Grima: *tries to ignore*
Mouth: *strokes his neck absently*
Grima: under the stairs?
Mouth: *blinks* what?
Grima: last night when I told you to sleep, you said you slept under the stairs.
Mouth: Yes? *eyedarts* This isn't really my room.
Grima: *curious look*
Mouth: You use it for everyone.
Grima: I'm feeling a bit disoriented. Just explain.
Mouth: *frowns slightly* It isn't any of my business. I just obey. *dodgy look*
Mouth: *doesn't look at Grima* I'm not the only one you sleep with. You use it when you have visitors
Grima: Ah. well. No more visitors.
Mouth: *startled look*
Mouth: ...you don't mean that do you?
Grima: I mean it. So the room is now yours.
Mouth: *wide blink* Thank you. *runs a hand down his chest and kisses his shoulder*
Grima: good, good. You're welcome... *eyedart*
Mouth: *glances up while running his hand across his waist* I want to do something to thank you.
Grima: *warily* what?
Mouth: *kisses both of his hand then pressing him down on the bed*
Grima: >.< asl;kalks bema. *darts off the bed*
Mouth: ...I was just going to give you a massage... I wasn't going to do anything you asked me not to....
Grima: ...alright then.
Mouth: *frowns but starts stripping him and rubbing his back*
Grima: mm. this isn't so bad.
Mouth: You are tense. *moves his arm so as to properly get at all the layers of muscle* ...try to relax a little more.
Grima: ¬.¬ *relaxes a tiny bit*
Mouth: mn. Particularly big knot here. It may be a little tender at first but I can work it out. *straddles him to get at it better*
Grima: o.o *holds still*
Mouth: *gently works it out then rubs his back down and starts on his legs*
Grima: *drifts off a bit*
Mouth: *finishes the leg and arm then tugs him a bit to turn him over*
Grima: *does so* >.> *vaguely guilty*
Mouth: *smiles and brushes his hair away from his face then starts on his neck and chest*
Mouth: You're so beautiful. *massage massage* ...I'll miss you.
Grima: er, what?
Mouth: *blushes and works on the shoulders some*
Grima: random cryptic statements are against the rules too.
Mouth: *doesn't look at him* It was hardly cryptic. You're giving me this room because you don't want me anymore. You've gotten bord with me while I'm still very attracted to you.
Grima: most people just take a good thing at face value.
Mouth: *hunches* I'm sorry. I should be thanking you for not killing me... *moves onto Grima's legs*
Mouth: *finishes up* There you are. You should feel much better now.
Grima: mm. Thank you. Now just stay in your damn room and behave.
Mouth: *bows his head* Yes lord.
Grima: ...good. *escapes to find Erendis*
Erendis: *reading quietly in the chair*
Grima: *rests his chin on her shoulder* hello, mon.
Erendis: *looks up* Where have you been?
Grima: Mouth's room. he thinks I'm Sauron.
Erendis: *eyebrow raise* oh? And what does that entail?
Grima: information I'd rather not know.
Erendis: *pats* I'm sorry.
Grima: managed to make it stop trying to have sex with me. Innapropriate physical contact continues, however.
Erendis: *darkly mutters about killing it*
Erendis: *pulls him down and kisses back soundly*
Grima: see, this is why mine and Saruman's physically abusive relationship was so much healthier. *places with Erendis' hair*
Erendis: I'm not sure I follow.
Grima: Sorry. speaking in midthought. Was thinking about aspects of Sauron and Mouth I'm learning, mon.
Erendis: Like what?
Grima: I should just let you watch him.
Erendis: *eyebrow raise* Will you let me kill him afterward if I feel like it?
Erendis: Okay. I'll watch.
Grima: *tugs her up* come.
Grima: *knocks on the door* Mouth?
Mouth: Come in. *curled on his bed but hastily stands up*
Grima: *comes in, leading Erendis*
Erendis: *eyes Mouth warily*
Erendis: *drops to his knees and bows* You must be my lord's new wife. Welcome.
Erendis: *blinks* o.o
Grima: see? manners.
Mouth: *glances up nervously* My lord said that you were beautiful but that hardly does you justice. Pleased to meet you.
Erendis *mumurs something in return near speechless*
Grima: told you it was odd.
Mouth: *glances between the two* Is there anything I could do for you?
Grima: just be yourself.
Mouth: *blinks and nods but stays on the floor*
Erendis: *under her breath* It's almost creepy.
Grima: *quietly back* not almost. is.
Erendis: *ducks out of the room*
Grima: there. I think that spared your life for a little longer.
Mouth: *eyes Grima and stand cautiously* Thank you my lord.
Mouth: any other requests?
Grima: No. That was good.
Mouth: *nods and curls back into bed*
Grima: *eyedarts and sits down beside* What's wrong?
Mouth: *hug and buries his face in grima's shoulder* *sniffs* ...nothing.
Mouth: *stays like that for awhile*
Grima: *shifts a bit to get comfortable*
Mouth: *takes it as a cue to let go* *blink* May I have food sometime? I would get it myself but I haven't left according to your wishes.
Grima: ...I'll bring you something
Mouth: *nods* Thank you lord. *hugs briefly again*
Grima: very well trained.
Mouth: *looks down* Of course. Since you trained me.
Grima: ...*pats Mouth on the shoulder awkwardly* oh.
Mouth: *leans into his hand*
Grima: >.> *comforting noises*
Mouth: *nuzzles grima*
Grima: *sighs and tolerates*
Mouth: *smiles and rubs his back*
Grima: *focuses on the roof*
Mouth: *strokes his chest absently*
Grima: *pets Mouth*
Mouth: *quiet happy noise*
Mouth: You've been very kind to me.
Grima: I do try.
Grima: *smiles a tiny bit*
Mouth: Are you sure there isn't something more I could do for you to make you happy.
Grima: I'm quite happy. Really.
Mouth: *plays with his hands*
Grima: *gives Mouth an odd look*
Mouth: *looks up* mm?
Grima: *eyedart* How *would* you make me happy?
Mouth: *blinks in confusion* Anything you wanted me to do I would. This in the past involved some sort of sexual or demeaning act but as you have a new bride...
Mouth: I'm at something of a loss.
Grima: She's not exactly new. It's been a year.
Mouth: *stops touching him* ...oh.
Grima: with children.
Mouth: *hurt look* Why didn't you tell me? And then...decide just now to....*looks down*
Grima: What did I decide to do just now?
Mouth: Abandon me. I don't understand. I don't put demands on your schedule. I've try to be as accomadating as possible. I do whatever you want me to and now you're permentantly moving to someone else? I've been with since numenor... *slumps* What Have I done wrong?
Grima: >.> be your own man, damnit.
Mouth: *miserable look* You've never wanted that out of me. Why now?
Grima: Change of heart.
Mouth: *curls* Why didn't you tell me sooner?
Grima: *picks Mouth up and tries to make him sit up straight*
Mouth: *wraps around Grima* If I were my own man, I'd only want to be yours again.
Mouth: *stops and skitters back*
Grima: spine. get one.
Mouth: *wilts and stares at Grima*
Grima: stop that
Mouth: ...go away.
Grima: very good.
Mouth: *curls under the blankets and waits for him to go.
Mouth: *cries quietly*
Grima: *stands at the door and listens* >.< need. moral. guidance. have no morals. bugger.
Mouth: *keeps at it for about 15 minutes*
Grima: *sighs and opens the door* Mouth?
Mouth: *wipes his eyes hurridly and sits up* Yes?
Grima: >.< ...I lied. Stop crying.
Mouth: *blushes* How did you...er.. what about?
Grima: ...all of it.
Mouth: *blinks dawning understanding* You were testing me.
Grima: ...*cringes a bit* yes.
Mouth: *slips onto the floor on his knees* ...did I pass?
Grima: yes. flying colours. good work.
Mouth: *beams up at him*
Grima: *reaches down and pats him on the head*
Mouth: *kisses his hand* Thank you my lord*
Grima: don't thank me. trust me on that.
Mouth: *brief confused look* ... *starts to nuzzle his legs*
Grima: >.< *ignoreignoreignore*
Mouth *stands up and starts to undo Grima's shirt*
Grima: o.o notagain.
Mouth: *stops* ...what?
Grima: er. nothing.
Mouth: *pauses* ...I'm confused. *sits down own the bed and looks at Grima closely* I know I'm undeserving but please...what is the truth?
Grima: that I'm very confused right now.
Mouth: *shakes his head and pulls Grima onto the bed with him* I will explain to you then. *starts pulling off his shirt and kissing his shoulder and chest* Against all reason, I adore you and would do anything you asked of me.
Grima: which is very heartwarming, yes...
Mouth: *brow furrows* Then what's troubling you?
Grima: nothing to trouble yourself with.
Mouth: *slight shrug* As you wish. *runs his fingers down Grima's chest and kisses the hollow of his neck and collarbone*
Grima: *frowns, but lets him*
Mouth: *straddles him and gently presses him down*
Grima: *debates whether or not he wants to make Mouth cry again* o.o
Mouth: *touches and kisses his chest and stomach then starts to undo his pants*
Grima: *mutters a prayer to Bema* >.>
Mouth: *takes obvious pleasure in ravishing Grima*
Grima: *waits to be struck down*
Mouth: *finishes and curls up next to him, using his chest a pillow*
Mouth: *nuzzles and plays with his hands*
Grima: *more guilt*
Mouth: You're so wonderful. thank you.*kisses his jaw*
Grima: twisted. Not wonderful. >.<
Mouth: Both then. *smiles* *takes Grima's hands and runs them down his body*
Mouth: You spent so much time not looking. *rubs against him a little* Thought you should be reminded that I'm still young for you.
Grima: *slightly panicked tone* yes. I've noticed.
Mouth: *smiles a little and runs them down lower* You seem distracted.
Grima: nothing against you. Really. *tries to burrow into the bed* o.o
Mouth: *confused look and rubs his back* You're still acting oddly....
Mouth: Tell me what's wrong. you might feel better.
Grima: *sternly* stop asking questions.
Mouth: *does so* *massages his back quietly*
Mouth: *kisses the base of his neck and curls up around him to sleep*
Grima: *tries to slip out of the bed*
Mouth: *wakes up* Mm?
Grima: *ignores and heads towards the door*
Mouth: *falls back asleep*
Erendis: *waiting up for him*
Grima: *just heads into bed and tries to avoid looking at her*
Erendis: *follow him in* ...is something wrong?
Grima: I'm scum. *tugs pillow over his head*
Erendis: o.o It happened again didn't it? >.< *leaves for Mouth's room*
Grima: *chases after her*
Erendis: *turns and glares at him* Him or me? Which is it?
Erendis: *nods* go back to your room then.
Grima: What are you going to do?
Erendis: Feed him to the spider hobbits.
Erendis: Then I'm going.
Grima: *grabs* He thinks I'm someone else. Wasn't his fault for once. >.<
Erendis: ...you. *looks up at him then away* Leave me alone for a bit. I won't hurt the poor delusional bastard...
Grima: ...*steps away* I panicked?
Erendis: *shakes her head and walks toward the kitchen wordlessly*
Thorondir: *experimenting in the area of cookies and milk*
Erendis: *mechanically fixes tea*
Thorondir: *constructs a mighty tower of cookies*
Erendis: *ignores entirely*
Thorondir: ...*stops for a moment* Erendis, was I allowed to take the cookies?
Erendis: Yes. Sure.
Thorondir: yay *eats*
Erendis: *stares at a fixed point in space*
Thorondir: insomnia? >.>
Erendis: *nods* That and bad day.
Thorondir: *pats her hand* can't sleep either. *offers a cookie*
Erendis: I'm sorry. *eats* Have you seen Mouth recently?
Thorondir: *shakes his head* and I don't sleep well alone.
Erendis: ...I'll stay with you until you go to sleep if you like.
Thorondir: kay. Why was your day bad?
Erendis: Dont' want to talk about it.
Erendis: *tries to smile* mostly insomnia
Thorondir: kay *scoots closer*
Erendis: *picks up and cuddles*
Thorondir: >.> *tries to make her feel better*
Erendis: *holds him tighter and cries silently on his shoulder*
Thorondir: o.o *hugs*
Erendis: *hugs back*
Thorondir: what's wrong?
Erendis: Mouth's been sleeping with Grima.
Erendis: Something is wrong with him. He didn't recognize me and thinks Grima is Sauron.
Thorondir: oh. He goes crazy sometimes.
Erendis: *half panicked look* but I can't do anything about it anymore. It doesn't work. I've been declawed.
Thorondir: he just hurt me last time. Um. Declawed?
Erendis: I don't have any area of influence anymore and it's driving me batty. Grima doesn't even respect me enough to keep his hands off of Mouth of all people.
Thorondir: oh. *fiddles with a bit of Erendis' hair*
Erendis: *blinks sleepily* between this and nightmares - I"m going to end up as mad as Mouth is.
Thorondir: >.> can't go mad. you're being nice.
Erendis: *smiles a little and pets Thorondir*
Erendis: *holds and rocks a little*
Thorondir: ...please don't kill Mouth.
Erendis: I'm not going to. *sigh*
Thorondir: kay. I know he doesn't like me at all, but still. *cling*
Erendis: ...who know. He might. Grima.... *trails off*
Thorondir: *shakes his head* he doesn't. I just made him feel guilty so he didn't go earlier.
Erendis: *tired look and kisses his cheek* I don't know.
Thorondir: getting over him >.> *continues clinging to Erendis* we can set fire to Grima too?
Erendis: *picks him up and carries him back to his room* ...no.
Thorondir: *looks up* not even a little?
Erendis: *set him in his bed and crawls in beside him.* Not even just a little.
Thorondir: *curls up against her* fine. but I have matches.
Erendis: *pets* I'll remember that.
Thorondir: *falls asleep*
Erendis: *waits to make sure then slips out*
Grima: *pacing in their bedroom trying to figure out what exactly to do*
Erendis: *returns and walks in* Still awake?
Erendis: *walks over, hesistates and hugs him*
Grima: *hugs back tightly* He started crying and I don't want to screw him up even further and I panicked and ...o.o
Erendis: *clings to him* I believe you.
Grima: thank Bema.
Erendis: *sits down on the bed* This is what happens. You tell Ioreth exactly what happened, she fixes him and everything goes back to normal. ...as unpleasant as his normal is.
Erendis: I'd rather have you than a Mouth that jumped at my every whim.
Grima: but I'm the only one he's doing anything to like this. Not any of the clones. >.> it's a bit of a moral victory
Erendis: *frowns* screw the clones. I don't want to have to share you with him to keep them safe. Outfit him with the scissors again and that cuts his romantic endeavors in half.
Grima: that first part is what I'm trying to prevent...
Erendis: ...do you want to keep him like he is?
Grima: well, you smell like Thorondir again so do you want him back to his old habits?
Erendis: *glares and strips* I don't smell like clone now if you were implying anything. I just want undivided you. >.<
Grima: It was actually an attempt to bring up protective insti--*distracted* *stares at Erendis*
Erendis: I *do* want him safe but I want you more. Do you think you can keep from panicing while around him?
Grima: um. o.o
Erendis: *eyebrow raise* Do you think you could at least act like a very busy dark lord while around him and cut out his advances?
Grima: will try that.
Erendis: *tugs him down and kisses him* good.
Grima: *kisses back* *makes mental note to just omit certain future things with Mouth, just in case*
Erendis: Love you. Thanks for being so honest with me *kisses again*
Grima: *weak smile*
Erendis: *tugs him onto the bed* Still very lucky to have a husband as brave as you are...
Grima: o.O Brave?
Erendis: *smiles and pushes back his hair* Mmhum. I can trust you.
Grima: okay, that's one of us then.
Erendis: *smiles and slips under the covers*
Grima: *follows and pulls her closer* I'm sorry.
Erendis: *kisses* It's okay. I still love you.
Erendis: *blinks and yawns*
Grima: *pets* sleep. For tomorrow I give you another headache.
Erendis: *mumbles something and drifts off*
Grima: *follows and hopes his dreams stay Mouth-free*
Erendis: *starts into nightmares*
Grima: *sleeps like a stone*
Erendis: *whimpers and then starts screaming*
Grima: o.o *startles awake*
Erendis: *wakes herself up* *blinks clutchign her side* ... um. I think I need to see Ioreth.
Grima: o.o kay. *helps her up*
Erendis: ...It's the first time it's been this bad. I was cut with a sword and now i'm bleeding.
Grima: *scoops her up and looks for Ioreth*
Erendis: *presses her hands against her side hard* >.< It was little things at first. Just being locked in a cell with rats but now it's much worse.
Grima: *kicks Ioreth's door* get up, woman.
Ioreth: ._. go away. sleeping off eight days of coffee.
Erendis: *bleeding badly* Please?
Ioreth: >.< aslkjlakjs *comes out*
Grima:Fix *holds out Erendis*
Ioreth: ...*gets to work*
Erendis: *winces through most of it* May I also have more of that bad dream medicine?
Ioreth: Yes. There should be some in the supply closet behind the dead spider. Or was it the really big venomous one I can't sseem to get out? Grima, go fetch
Grima: >.< fsst
Erendis: Um. Should probably also alert you that while you've been busy with other things, Mouth's gone through a mental breakdown and believes Grima's Sauron.
Ioreth: Just kill him already. *sews*
Erendis: *winces* I can't.
Erendis: ...he doesn't want me to.
Ioreth: Mouth really has no say in the matter, dear.
Erendis: ...no. Grima.
Erendis: They've slept together twice so far.
Erendis: Why did you make multiple Mouths by the way?
Ioreth: something to kick.
Ioreth: *shrugs and finishes patching up Erendis*
Erendis: Thank you.
Ioreth: Not a problem, dear.
Erendis: Sorry about waking you up. *slips off the table gingerly*
Grima: *comes back with spiderbites and the nightmare medicine*
Erendis: *kisses* Thanks
Grima: I'm never going to succeed in coming back in time to see you two having a torrid affair, am I? >.> *tired, slightly out of it with spiderpoison voice*
Erendis: Sorry you had to miss the blood, stitches and estactic moaning. Better luck nextime hm?
Grima: one can only hope. Here. Lookit. Drink.
Erendis: *does so* Thank you very much.
Grima: I think that spider insulted my mother, mon...
Erendis: mmhum. Come on. Thanks again Ioreth.
Ioreth: *yawns and heads back to her room*
Gwathren: *curled in her bed* hi.
Ioreth: ...*checks the door to make sure it is her room*
Gwathren: I woke up and there were spiders and on bit me and it hurt and I want to sleep in your room tonight.
Ioreth: I'm tired. No clones.
Gwathren: Pleaaase? I'll lie very very still.
Ioreth: fine. *climbs back in*
Gwathren: *curls around her and falls asleep*
Ioreth: *badthoughts* o.o
Gwathren: *nuzzles in her sleep*
Ioreth: *tries to think of her ex-husband* >.>
Gwathren: *loops her arm around Ioreth's waist*
Ioreth: *tries to think about Aragorn*
Gwathren: *small happy sound in her sleep*
Ioreth: *tries to disentangle herself*
Gwathren: *murmers and shifts hooking her legs*
Ioreth: *reaches up and rests a hand on her*
Gwathren: *smiles in her sleep* *happy mumbles*
Gwathren: *sleeps well*
Ioreth: >.> *tries to sleep and think nice happy things*
