[Rockstar] Writing Retreat

Post by nocturnalie on Sun May 12, 2013 11:37 pm

It's been a couple of months since the last tour. Snooze has been living with Mitz, which, after the first couple of days when they were settling into routines and getting used to having someone around again, was quite possibly the best roommate experience he's ever had. Cooking (and teaching Mitz how to cook), watching the most random movies, and going on walks through the city--Snooze with camera in hand, Mitz blushing as Snooze goes through roll after roll of film... yeah. It's been incredible.

But lately, there's been papers scattered over the benches, and Mouse has been over more and more--which is awesome, Snooze loved it the first night he cooked for her and her eyes almost bugged out of her head, and they have the same taste in movies--and Mitz has this constant look in his eyes. He's gazing into the middle distance, and Snooze has worn out his mouse hand trying to catch the look right in his image editing programs.

Finally, Mouse drops by with a duffle bag. They need to go away, she says. She needs to be singing, getting back into the music--it's been invading her head every day more and more. Mitz needs to be writing, to be composing. Mitz looks almost pathetically grateful.

Snooze scratches the back of his neck. He and Mouse are hovering in Mitz's doorway as he packs.

Finally, he decides he just has to ask. "So... can I come?"

Mouse looks at him skeptically. He's toured with them, sure, but a creative retreat's another thing. "Would you want to come? It's gonna be pretty boring for you." She doesn't know how Mitz'll feel about it, but she'll just get self-conscious if someone's taking her picture all the time.

Mitz folds up some shirts, humming. "I don't mind," he says slowly. "But - yeah, no. It's going to be boring. We barely talk to each other, not until some kind of breakthrough. But it's nice? We're going to the mountain house, right? It's nice out there. Could be good for nature shots, maybe."

He really hates the idea of leaving Snooze out, especially after he's been rolling with them for so long.

"It would be better than rattling around here on my own." Snooze tries to be cheerful about the thought, but really, he does hate being lonely, and he's become so attached to this pair.

Mouse shrugs. "Well, you're not usually a distraction. I'm cool with it." If he's too annoying she'll duct tape him to something. She's done it to annoying stagehands before.

Snooze relaxes slightly. He and Mouse sometimes have a tense relationship--she's very firm about what she'll allow to be photographed or quoted, and sometimes Snooze pushes when he should respect her wishes instead. But if she says she's all right with it, she really must mean it. "So I can come?" he says, hopeful.

Mitz doesn't look up from his packing. "Yup! Bring a lot of stuff, though. I mean, if you want. I do. I probably shouldn't..."

He then falls into a mumbling narration about what he's packing and why he's packing it, mostly to himself and highly distracted.

Snooze leans against the doorway even though he should jet off and start packing, and probably gets the most stupid smile on his face as he listens to Mitz narrate. If Mitz looks up he may see Snooze /and/ Mouse looking at him like that.

Mouse shakes her head after a second. "You can come. Just bring what you need. This indecisive brat tends to take up all the storage space." She hefts her own, single duffle. "Prioritization is key."

Mitz doesn't look up until a good thirty seconds has passed and he actually processes what he just heard. "Huh? Wait, what, me? I'm not indecisive! Well, I am, but not about this. Or I might be. But most of if it about not know what might happen," he explains quickly, packing an extra three chargers. "Gotta be prepared."

Mouse laughs. "For everything up to and including the zombie apocalypse. I think you have enough power supply, Mitz."

"I practically don't have to pack," Snooze teases. "I think you have everything I need as well as everything you and Mouse need."

"/That's/ why I have to pack everything," Mitz whines. "Because you two are all 'oh no I have everything' and then what happens? You forget something. But that's okay because--" he gestures to his bags. "Taken care of."

Snooze laughs, and he's looking at Mitz with such utter fondness it's probably ridiculous. "That's a fair defence."
