Dear occupant(s) of RC 5242:

What a nice thing to find in my inbox this evening! That song has a message I can get behind. Very cute.

Sadly, I’m sure you can’t have meant to send it to me. I suggest you be more careful next time so there’s no repetition of this happy mistake.

Kind regards,

I think you may’ve jinxed me, Jenni – that last mission...well, I’ll spare you the details, but it was an epic.

One good thing came out of it, at least:  I’ve been wanting to see Singing In the Rain again, and what do you know?  The characters put it on!  (In a private theatre, for their date, two years before it came out...)

And then they had a nice little duet of one of the songs combined with some pop song I remember hearing all over the radio in 2007, which kind of came out of nowhere considering they never sang anything before that.  Or after, for that matter.  Apparently, it’s something to do with some show called Glee?

So, for something nice that’s also from Gene Kelly (though not in this version – stumbled on Ella and, well, how could I not?):

‘I Got Rhythm’ – Ella Fitzgerald

And, for a song those characters could’ve stood to learn something from:

‘I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’,’ Porgy and Bess – Alvy Powell

Hope the details of your job have been making more sense...

‘Some kid is dreaming/and we’re all stuck inside his wacky Broadway nightmare...’

I looked up the episode.  It’s pretty great.  Funnily enough, I think I’d actually rather Spike to John (vampire to ex-partner with the same face.  The vampire seems more honest).

Speaking of the episode:  Giles’ song definitely stands out for me.  (Admittedly, most of them stand out, but I’ll stick to just the one in the interest of not flooding you with the entire soundtrack...)

I’m glad you liked the episode. The song was my commentary both on your mission and on how much sense my job tends to make, in case that wasn’t clear. (Didn’t have time for a proper message earlier, wanted to respond anyway, this is what happens.)

“Partner”—with the history you’ve told me, this word is even more vague than usual for the PPC. :) I’d invite you to elaborate, but maybe it should wait?

Anyway, Spike has been on quite the journey at that point, and has further still to go. I recommend the series highly. Not just for him, the characters are all great, but he’s a major component of the show’s alchemy in the later seasons, for sure.

I’d happily listen to the entire OMWF soundtrack again, but since you mention Giles, let’s take a moment (okay, a few moments) to appreciate Anthony Stewart Head and his glorious singing voice:

Giles sings “Freebird” (and is cruelly interrupted)

You’re right on both counts.  I can’t imagine not having a soft spot for Rocky Horror and, horrific video quality aside, that was great.  ;)

As for ‘glorious’...that’s definitely the word for it.  I’d happily attend a concert at this point.

And John...where to even begin with John.  Well, it’s not his real name:  John Hart is the last name I heard him use, and if he didn’t make it up on the spot, I’ll be shocked.  He showed up in twenty-first century Cardiff, you see, then caused some trouble and blew out of town again.

I called him my ex-partner because that’s what he was to me:  my longest-standing partner at the Time Agency.  We were very close.  Getting trapped in a two-week time loop for five years will do that to you.  We lost touch when I quit, but he moved on far less than I did – well, I had a lot more time and a lot of new experiences to help with that.

(He’s also the picture you should see in a dictionary next to ‘loose cannon’.  Barely cares about anything or anyone that isn’t him, money, booze, sex, drugs...murder... doesn’t exactly have too many lines he won’t cross.  He was a little more moral when we first met, but it didn’t last too long.)

Speaking of too long, this message is probably getting there.  How about a palate cleanser?  Have you ever seen much of the televised singing competitions that started cropping up in the early 2000s?  I’ve started looking them up again in spare moments, and I think they got better.

Yikes; bad boyfriend who didn’t know when it was over, huh? And very bad, at that—but I’m the last person in the universe to judge anyone based on their past entanglements. Especially if it wasn’t exactly by choice. So that’s what you meant about HQ time being better than a time loop . . . But, “twenty-first century Cardiff” means the trouble was recent, right? Sounds like there’s a lot to unpack there, if you want to.

In the meanwhile . . .

No, I’m afraid I don’t follow “reality” shows too much. Some of the greater moments (good, bad, and ugly) do circulate, but I hadn’t seen either of those clips. Good stuff—and a second cute dancing dog, I note. Do I detect a pattern? :)

But in general, it’s not exactly in the line of duty, you know? It’s tough enough keeping up with the big franchises when my media time tends to fill up with cartoons and Wobbles the Clown and whatever else is on NutMint.

. . . Which reminds me. I guess I take it for granted that it’s obvious to anyone who’s been in my office, but you’d think I might want to actually mention that I have a son, seeing as that’s the sort of important detail people tend to want to know about people they’re keen enough on to exchange this many illicit e-mails with. :) His name is Henry, he’s four, and he’s the most important person in my life.

And now I’m running up the word count, which I’d be fine with if it weren’t for that whole “illicit” thing.

Sigh. Is it just me, or are the days really dragging their heels?

Obvious or not, it’s always good to get the details.  Thanks for telling me.  I’m currently childless myself, but I can understand some of the emotion that goes into having them.  It must be interesting having him live with you instead of in the Nursery like a lot of the field agents seem to go for.

Can I ask if there’s anyone else in the picture?  I wouldn’t want to cross a line there accidentally, but I can’t deny I’m curious.  Especially since the situation doesn’t match what I’ve been seeing so far with other agents.

As for John...well, he probably does bear discussing, unfortunately, because you’re right – he showed back up again not too long before I got recruited to the PPC, about five months ago now.  Over a century later for me, maybe about ten, fifteen years for him at most.  It was never exactly simple with him, even when it was easy, and this last time...wasn’t so easy.  Even knowing something was up, he still managed to cause us a whole lot of trouble; no one was sorry to see him go in the end.  Well, I was, a bit, because he dropped another bomb – the metaphorical kind this time – two seconds before he went, but other than that, we were glad to see the back of him.  Metaphorically.  I’m still working on whether I’m entirely glad about having been recruited before I reached the answer to that question or not, though I think it’s the kind of thing you can’t help but feel a little conflicted about.

Anyway.

Eight and a half days down, six-ish left to go?  It feels like it’s already been a good two weeks, but even the least exact ways of time keeping I have available seem to disagree.  We’ll just have to keep waiting, even if it can sometimes feel like...

Ooh, Sondheim! New, exciting territory for us!

Ah, let me stop laughing and back up a bit . . .

First, I’m sorry the ex gave you such a rough time. With—if I’m reading this right—literal explosives involved? Not nice. I don’t know what question you’re referring to, but at least there’s a possibility that you can find answers if you want them? Maybe that’s something to bring up with Mirrad for more direct sounding out.

Second, a serious question deserves a serious answer: no, nobody else in the picture besides the one you already know about. (Agent Suicide, btw; really; yes, really.) It honestly took me a minute to figure out why you’d ask—Henry’s adopted, see. :) Anyway, I get it, and I’ll take up-front questions over speculation and festering concerns every time.

As for the living arrangement, I like having my baby close to me. I’ve done creche-rearing before, and it’s great, but I don’t have to rely on that here. I’m not a field agent, I’ve got the time and stability, and I guess I thought it would be more normal for him this way, living at home. I am now questioning the logic of this relative to what’s normal for other kids in HQ, but I’ll spare you the panic attack. He’ll resent me when he’s older no matter what I do, right? :)

It’s good, is the point I was trying to make. For now, at least, life with Henry is really good.

And, you know, I’ve got this feeling about the next few days . . .

Hey, maybe you’ll get lucky and he’ll only resent you over silly things you can fix easily!  You never know.

More seriously, he might end up appreciating growing up living with you when he’s older – sure, the Nursery’s handy, but it’s very different living with your parent(s).  I know I appreciated it eventually.

Jumping back a topic...oh, I have those answers.  I read the right things to find out.  Better than Jack:  he had to live it.  I just got to stare at my screen in horror.  That was a fun night.  I think the one thing I envy him is that he got the chance to apologize.  I’m never going to get that.  I mean, I could do it on a mission, if he ever shows up in one, but it’s not like he’d remember afterwards.

The rest I’m glad enough not to personally remember, though.  At least my team was alive, the last time they were, you know, mine.  That’s something.

Ooh, West Side Story.  That’s a great one.

Not from a musical this time, but hey, someone reminded me of him recently and he was active around the same time as when West Side Story came out:

‘Carol’ – Chuck Berry

What do you think?  Ever come across him before?  He was really big back in the day.  The Rolling Stones also covered some of his songs – I think the Beatles did a few, too, and maybe...the Beach Boys?  What was that rant – oh, right, they took the tune from ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ and set ‘Surfin’ USA’ to it.  Now I remember.  Funny how worked up people can get about music, huh?  This all happened before the friend I mentioned was born, but she’s still up in arms about it.

As to why I was there, you’re right – that was a ‘maintenance session’, as you called it way back when.  What with one thing and another (remember that really long mission I got back from a few days ago?) my first time with Mirrad got pushed back a bit.  It went...alright.  You’ll be happy (?) to know that I didn’t manage to flirt myself out of his care, too.

It’s just as well.  I think you and I will do better as friends than he and I would.

Ooh, all that jazz? You promise? Should I rouge my knees? I’ve been halfway committed to tight black leather and a perm since about message six, but I’m flexible. ;)

Yes, I’m happy to hear you got around to seeing Mirrad, and also that he’s as unflappable as ever in the face of what I can well imagine was terribly perilous temptation.

It really is just as well. I don’t think you know how right you are! The Minbari are the Vulcan analogue of the Babylon 5 continuum. They’re a dispassionate and highly ritualistic people. If you think waiting two weeks for a date is bad, look up Minbari courtship rituals. Somewhere beyond dating, there’s a phase where one partner watches the other sleep for three nights in a row, until the one sees the other’s “true face.” That’s sort of romantic, sure, but imagine trying to fall asleep with someone staring at you—and IIRC, if the other person messes up by falling asleep themself or getting distracted, you have to start over.

There’s another phase where the couple spend the night together, “slowly and meditatively discovering each other’s centers of pleasure.” You might think that sounds pretty good, until you learn there’s supposed to be a crowd of trusted friends and family members listening at the door to make sure things don’t go too far. I say that’s cruel and unusual punishment!

Anyway, since I have every intention of going back and facing the peril of you personally, I’m trusting Mirrad to carry on for me professionally—I do trust him, and I respect him. Even when the zen thing gets so annoying I could almost smack him. That’s exactly what makes him someone you can rely on for perspective and, dare I say, wisdom. Plus the occasional dry remark that will come up and make you laugh out of nowhere. Watch out for that. :)

I have to wrap this up. Text is barely good enough, anyway. Deep breaths and all that.

Turns out today was a day for working ‘9 to 5’ – originally Dolly Parton, but it turns out it’s also a musical.  I never knew!

It feels very relatable right now, let me tell you.

Nothing too exceptional, in the end – relatively short mission, as missions go.  Still, it’s good to be home.

I can take or leave the perm and rouged knees, but I’ll happily keep tight black leather or rolled down stockings in the mix.  ;)

I didn’t notice much sense of humour in Mirrad, but maybe I’ll spot it the next time I see him.  I’ll keep an eye out for it, anyway – it’ll give me something to do.  Oof re:  Minbari traditions, though.  Don’t think it’s for me, given a choice.  The person would have to be really worth it.

Only a few more days before we can do some of this talking (eventually) face to face!  I’ll put practicality over daydreams for a moment – where shall we go?  What shall we do?  (Hopefully, you do give a damn...)

Anyway. It was going to be dinner, right? Dinner is good, and the best place for a real dinner is New Caledonia. There are options, most of them good—just not Deepdelver’s. Not saying I’d never give rat-based cuisine a shot, but it’s not the sort of adventure I’m looking for at this time.

We might even find some music afterward or during, too. We could wander, if the weather cooperates. I could show you around a bit (this is why “Whole New World”), if you haven’t been yet.

Oh, and by the way, you said something early on about me not being much for bars? You were nearly right. I don’t mind bars—the kind with live music, like Rudi’s, can be great!—but I don’t drink much. It doesn’t suit me. (Don’t like to see other people going to excess, either.)

So, what do you think?

Well, I’ve hardly ever been to New Cal (I know, I know, I’ve been here for months, but the opportunities just haven’t been coming), so I’d be interested to see what you think is worth showing me there.  And I do somehow think I’ll live with passing on the rats.  Not really my cup of tea.  I think I heard there’s a Japanese place there?

As for bars, well, it’s been a while since I was much of a drinker.  Shouldn’t be a problem.

Speaking of finding music, here’s a song on the topic that I used to hear all the time on the radio:

‘Play A Simple Melody’ – Bing and Gary Crosby

Catchy, isn’t it?

> Musical demon, set your honey a-dreamin’
> Won’t you play me some rag?

Invoking a musical demon? Did you learn nothing from “Once More With Feeling”?

Nah, it’s a good song. :) TBH I’m more for a reel than a rag, though. For instance, because it is so very apropos:

“Cooley’s Reel/The Cup of Tea/The Wise Maid” – The Tulla Céilí Band

Anyway, I’m down for Japanese. That’ll be Nakamura’s; it’s a good place. Did you hear about it from Lux? I know she likes it, too.

Not that her taste is always reliable. For instance, I don’t think I’d play this song-sharing game with her. ^_^;

I’ve enjoyed it with you, for the record. It’s nice to know we have a few simple things in common. Liking musicals, for one, is a very good thing to share in my book. You have to have a bit of a romantic soul to appreciate a musical; you have to know what it’s like to feel something so strongly you wish you could break into extemporaneous song and dance about it.

Or at least kiss someone about it.

Ah, there I go a-dreamin’. Guess that rag got to me after all. ;)

On that note, sadly, I do not work 9 to 5, I work 6 to 2, so I’ve got to go sleep. I’ll catch you on the flip side. But, one more for the dream-road:

“Sweet Sea” – Anne McCaffrey, Tania Opland & Mike Freeman

Nakamura’s it is.  (And yes, I did hear about it from Lux.)

Liking musicals is a fantastic thing to share with someone, I’ve always thought.  Remind me to tell you about some of the first musicals I ever saw sometime; there are some interesting ones in the future I remember.

Although, there are definitely more interesting things to talk about.  Kissing you, to take a random example!  ;)  We didn’t get very far on that topic back in your office, unfortunately, and not at all in the corridor yesterday...but certainly not for a lack of interest!  I hope we’ll have better luck next time we meet in person.

In the meanwhile:  Sweet dreams!  ;)

You’d probably get in no trouble at all, saucy boy.

Me, though, loss of professional respect at the very least, which wouldn’t bother me except that I had to work hard to earn it in the first place. Long sordid backstory there, not for three in the morning before we’ve even made it to the first date.

I think you’d get it, though. I really do. That’s uncommon.

And uncommon is well worth waiting for. It’s not like you and I don’t have time, after all.

Not quite Ella and Louis, but trust me, it’s great – and when that first date comes, it’ll be even better.

Well, I’ve made it through the day, and I’ve reached that place where everything is about ten times funnier than it should be. Like “de-lovely” not being a word, but they keep saying it anyway. Hilarious! Also, yes: it is delightful, it will be delicious, and I’ll even say de-lovely if you like. Might giggle and wreck it, though. ^_^

I got some strange looks from my coworkers today; that was fun. Pretty sure some of them already thought there was something wrong with me. I love ’em, but they’re sure nosy! It’s like living in a dorm. My neighbor in C-15, Gerry, even brought me a cup of tea unsolicited, like I was too far gone to look after myself. Well-meaning gesture, and nice, if silly.

This song wandered across my train of thought at some point, and is also extremely funny in context, I’m pretty sure:

“Friendly Duet” – Flanders and Swann

I’ll let you know for sure once I figure out whether it’s tomorrow or today. ;)

Re. McCartney, HQ does forget what day (or year) it is sometimes, too. I guess it’s a case of plotholes and/or time slippage? Not complaining. Fun song, eerily appropriate. Suspect the PTBs are playing silly buggers with us, though. :)

Should I start calling you my chickadee, in that case?  I can’t say I’ve ever done that before, but I’d be willing to give it a shot.

Get some sleep, Jenni.  I can’t personally remember much of what being that type of sleep deprived is like, but I’ve had some pretty vivid descriptions over the years.  I’ll still be here when you wake up, barring missions.

A song for your morning, since it’s a little upbeat for a sleepy night:

Good morning!

You’re sweet. And, as sappy pet names go, I guess chickadee’s all right. It only makes me want to vomit a tiny bit. ;)

If I had time, I’d try to parse that fascinatingly over-qualified comment about sleep deprivation, but I do not. I’m off to do rounds, which is always fun. Never know who you’ll run into and what nutty things they’ll be shouting about. Thus do I bide my time. :)

Chickadee it is, then, until I find something that doesn’t make you want to vomit at all.  Though, speaking of pet names – did you know that in French you can call a woman your flea or your sardine as an endearment?  It’s a real thing, I swear.

The sleep deprivation comment is really pretty simple:  since I became immortal, I’ve had to put in a lot of effort to really feel sleep deprived.  When I do get there, it’s usually been because I worked through several nights in a row, so it isn’t quite the type you ended up with.  Mostly.  Maybe you’ll see it in person sometime.

I do know a few Heart songs.  Have you ever heard ‘Magic Man’?

I think I still know almost every word – I used to listen to a radio station that played it a lot.  Let me know what you think.

Oh, jeez, that was not meant to be taken as encouragement. :P But weirdly, I don’t actually hate the idea? Huh. Well, I guess that means I have to come up with something for you, then. I’ll think about it. Giving names is a serious business.

I knew “my little cauliflower” was a thing in French, but not the other ones. You know what language has the best endearments? Persian. Forget what the words mean, though you can’t really go wrong with stuff like “light of my eyes”; they just sound beautiful. Nooré cheshm-amaziz-amātashé del-am . . . Gives French a run for its money as the language of love, if you ask me. I used to know someone who was (among other things) a serious polyglot, who spoke both . . . not that those sorts of words really came up ever.

Tangent aside—wait, is that redundant?

Thanks for clarifying re. sleep dep and immortality. I had noticed some late timestamps (apart from the other night!). Honestly, that could mean anything here, so I didn’t think much of it, but it would make sense if it’s part of the superior hardiness/recuperation package. I’m pretty curious about how all that works for you.

That song feels almost autobiographical. I think I’ve been on both sides of it at various times. You can be the magic man this time, if you believe in magic.

It’s hard not to believe in magic when you’ve been on Harry Potter missions (among others), so...I’m going to have to say yes, I do.  Not in my home universe, but outside it?  Sure.

I haven’t heard much Persian; it looks pretty nice, though.  You’ve met some interesting people, haven’t you?  Not that you haven’t had time...

And that would be the console.  I swear, that beep was so loud you might be able to feel it through the message.  I have to run – Doctor Who/Harry Potter/Twilight, because of course it is – sending this now since I don’t know when I’ll be back.

Wow. I find the timing of this beep highly suspect, but I’ll keep all other thoughts about it to myself lest I make it worse.

Re. magic, that’s good. I spent a fair bit of time in the Potterverse just prior to starting here, so I can confirm that magic is a thing there. ;)

Also interesting people. The multiverse is full of them! I keep turning up more everywhere I go. In fact, there’s this one guy I’m hoping to go out with in a couple days, if he’s not too busy . . . ;)

I’ve actually heard that song before! The animation is cute, too. Fanlove like that is great. Have you seen/heard this?

“Harry Potter in 99 Seconds” by Paint (Er, spoiler warning for the whole series, just in case.)

Since that’s got a mention of Edward Cullen in it, I’ll go ahead and round out the crossover trifecta with a Doctor Who-inspired song as filthy as it is funny. I hope it makes you laugh and isn’t somehow more offensive than it means to be, anyway.

“It’s Bigger on the Inside” – Aurelio Voltaire
