    Summary

    DR. VERNIER — “I have had lots of people come through here, Harry, and many of them were addicts. I can assure you that most people do not describe being high on speed as ‘calming’ or ‘focusing’. You did. And while I agree that when you were taking it before, it was not healthy, I think that is heavily because of the surrounding circumstances. You weren’t coping well with anything back then. Even if you had been properly medicated and not taking street versions of the drug, I don’t know if it would have made a difference.”

    VOLITION [Heroic : Success] — She’s right. You were always going to have to choose to get better before it could actually happen. You took those drugs hoping they would hurt you. That isn’t how a person gets more stable.

    LOGIC [Medium : Success] — Plus, you know, drugs react differently when you drown them in alcohol. And other drugs.

    ---
    A diagnosis. A prescription. A risk. A chance. And always, always — a choice.

    Summary

    APARTMENT OF A FORMER DRUNK — And who are you, exactly? A former drunk, at the very least. That’s not enough to define an entire person, though. Who is Lieutenant Double-Yefreitor Harry DuBois?

    RHETORIC — I can tell you who he isn’t: anyone Jean Vicquemare recognizes.

    VOLITION [Challenging : Failure] — I said to stop.

    INLAND EMPIRE [Formidable : Success] — Too late to stop, now. He’s curious. He’s figuring us out.

    DRAMA — The lies.

    LOGIC — The truth.

    VOLITION [Heroic : Success] — STOP.

    Summary

    YOU — You fidget with your fingers for a moment, and then look back at him. “Are you okay, Kim?”

    PERCEPTION [Easy: Success] — He blinks twice, surprised. Then he looks away, turning his gaze to the violet and blue sky.

    EMPATHY [Medium: Success] — He feels uncomfortable, sometimes, having such raw concern and sincerity pouring out from you with only him as recipient. You’re… intense, on a good day.

    KIM KITSURAGI — “I’m alright,” he says. His fingers twitch, like he’s itching for a cigarette. “It’s been… a long week.”

    ELECTROCHEMISTRY [Trivial: Failure] — Oh, it’s been long, and it’s been hard. Makes you itch for the neck of a bottle in your hand, neurotransmitters firing wild, fireworks behind your eyes.

    (or; Kim has a rough week. Harry helps, in his own way.)

    “What do you say,” Harry says, kneading his hands into Kim’s bare shoulders. “How about we go?”
    “To the tournée? Harry, those tickets are hundreds of réal each.”

    --

    Harry indulges in a little fantasy. Kim breaks the first rule of improv.
