Yes, that's Seth. The picture of patience.
Mitz nudges Seth gently with a smile. Is everything okay now? (He might not get too much better for a while. I can see the blood he takes being just enough to stop him from turning into a walking, overly meek, skeleton.)

"I know where he has to go, yeah," Mitz says, sulking a little. He was confined to the upper levels when everyone thought his blood was sick. He grew up here.

Well, he's learning, anyway.
It's better, Seth allows. (meanwhile Snooze gets obsessive about testing his blood toxicity just about every day)

"Where you both go," Ace sing-songs as she leaves them. She is so ready for bed. Dealing with grumpy warboys is not what she's used to.

Mitz pats Seth's arm. Oh, he'll get the hang of it. Give it another century.
But not right, Mitz finishes for him. (Oh, Snoozer. It won't happen overnight. Mitz will try to stop him nearly every time. Suggest a weekly check if he needs to know.)

Mitz frowns after her. "What's that 'sposed to mean? Are you gonna be eating where the 'boys eat? That's not right either," Mitz is half talking to himself, half to Snooze. "I'll bring you to where the dogs and imperators ate, that's probably the right place."

Yeah, see? He's got the time for that. He's got the patience. Probably. He's learning the patience? He's working his patience out, like a muscle.
Not yet. Not for a while, Seth thinks. It's--they're good. They are. But Seth won't--settle--until Mitz gets better. (He does need to know. But he'll still do it on the sly. Mitz is gone, during the day. He'll do it then. He'll have to find different places to draw blood from. Maybe he can work out a way to alter an insulin checker.)

"Probably every place is for everyone," Snooze says, after a moment spent considering. "We'll figure it."

Is that how it works?
Mitz sighs heavily, making a point to use a bunch of actual air. As he wishes. But it's silly. Mitz thinks it's silly. (You should trick Mitz into doing the thing, Snooze. Bet he'd be able to figure it out in a snap.)

Mitz frowns. "Doesn't make sense to do it like that," he complains, but not to Snooze. He's looking into the room and has already spotted a nice little corner that looks cool. It'll be nice to have a cool spot to sleep, somewhere that doesn't start to heat up as soon as the sun comes out, somewhere he can stay in one spot instead of sleepily chasing shade.

Yeah, totally, it expands the more you work it. And sometimes it gets really sore when you overuse it, Seth snickers.
Mitz is kind of judgey today, Seth tries to joke. (Snooze has no idea what kind of valid excuse he could use for that. Carlisle gave him a broken thing from the hospital? Even that's weird.)

"Doesn't make sense, but it makes it so people can eat," Snooze assumes. It'd make more sense just to have one place to eat, he thinks. But soon enough it won't be his problem anymore. "This look good to you?" Snooze is really no judge.

Mitz smiles a little at Seth's laughter more than the joke, but he has nothing further to add. He just likes seeing Seth happy and relaxed.
Mitz is kind of judgey all the time, it's just that he's too tired to stop himself from talking right now, he grins. (Weird to him, maybe. Mitz would pretty much do anything for Snooze and he assumes that he knows what he's talking about.)

"Looks better'n I thought it would," Mitz admits. He was just expecting...he doesn't know. Cloth draped over the roof to provide shade, he's seen that with the Tellers' rooms. Or maybe one of those big, ruined, rig wheels in half to sleep in. He always wanted that. But this has space and places to put things if you had them and a special soft raised place for the driver for when he sleeps. "You don't think it's good?"

Seth points out something else funny about the movie--funny to them, anyway. He's all kinds of relaxed right now. It's nice. (Seems like these guys are doneskies!)
Seth finds it pretty funny, to be honest. (Snooze doesn't feel right lying, though. He'll have to think of something. Or just be trying to fix it while Mitz is bored.)

"I think it is. Just checking. Wondering." Snooze doesn't know how to explain it. He ventures into the room properly and puts his hand down on the bed. It feels like--well, almost like it's a real mattress. Weird.

(They are done, the sweethearts with sharp teeth.)
Yeah? Mitz isn't usually a funny person. (That'll do it. Mitz is automatically drawn to all tinkering.)

"Don't know much about it," Mitz shrugs. He's not really that shamed to now know anything about how the higher ups lived. "But seems alright. That's gotta be weird," he says, nodding at Snooze's hand depressing the mattress. "Don't think I'd be able to sleep on anything like that."

(Hopefully they'll remember to separate before they die for the day.)
Maybe he's developing it. (That way Snooze will have a relatively harmless way to check his blood toxicity. Like Tony Stark! Hey!)

"Seems soft. Like really good seats." Snooze hasn't had really good seats for a long time, but he's kind of looking forward to it, actually. He sits on the bed, and flops back. All at once, he realises he's going to get the blankets filthy, and he jerks back up again, self-consciously wiping off his jacket.

(MAYBE)
Mitz looks sceptical. He'll have to trust Seth on that one. Seth was always the funny one, so he'd know. (Hey! And Mitz won't have any way of knowing~)

Mitz jumps a little at Snooze's too-quick movement. "What's happened?" He asks, making his way over to the bed and looking it over like he'll find a pest that he can catch. Snooze moved like he was stung.

Mitz says the nicest things. They'll take it slow in the humour department. (Snooze can keep constant tabs on his toxicity after that, too, because the water will probably infect the food supply and such. He'll have to change his diet, probably.)

Snooze is angry at himself for being dirty. He can't remember the last time he was clean, but right now it's painfully obvious how filthy he is. He scrubs at his dirty arms. "I'll get it all dirty."

(that's an option)
Mitz feels like maybe he can't slow down the progress now that it's been made. He'll probably just kep building momentum until he crashes into a humor wall. (Mitz is sighing so hard. But Snooze loves his food!)

Mitz cocks his head. "I don't understand," he says honestly. He knows the word, but it's usually used for things like speech or actions. Dirty words, filthy thoughts, clean leaders, that kind of thing. Things don't fit in with that.

(probably muttering 'idiots', especially if Mouse is there)
he thinks he's gonna out-funny Seth? Seth puts his hand on his chest and gasps, forcefully. (He does! He'll just have to put a lot more research into what's home-grown and what's imported, what's local. He'll get really obnoxious about it, snicker.)

Snooze holds his hands out, showing off the dirt and dust to Mitz. "Dirty. You know. This stuff has been washed." Snooze gets up off the bed and makes an rough attempt at brushing off the dirt that's already transferred to the bed from his clothes. "I haven't."

(awww you know you love them Mouse)
Mitz smiles. How could he ever? Seth is the funniest person Mitz knows. All Mitz has, in terms of humor, is--dark, he supposes. Not too many people laugh when Mitz does. (Snooze, you will turn into an awful foodie hipster!)

Mitz frowns, scooting over to Snooze. "Yeah, okay," he says slowly because he doesn't know what's happening but he knows Snooze is suddenly upset. Acting crazy. "But if they've washed okay before then they can do it again? And you, I suppose, whatever that might mean. You mean like polish? Like when the cars go out to the bullet farm for the first time?"

(she dooooooo but she also calls them idiots and that's okay)
Mitz doesn't laugh often enough to know whether people will laugh at the same time as him or not. (ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED)

"Is that why some of them are so shiny?" Snooze is still looking at the bedclothes, though--still frowning at them. He sighs. "Look. It's just--dunno." He hasn't had a proper wash in a zillion years; the closest thing to running water he's seen in a long time came plummeting out of a mountain like a waterfall, or out of a hose. The brides know about washing, he suddenly remembers. "'S there anywhere around here people go to scrub? Like when they have to be clean for something?" He's not sure if Mitz will know. Most of the people who do actual work around the Citadel are as filthy as they come.

(they're hers. Well, Mitz is. She doesn't know it yet but he is)
Mitz laughs! He nudges Seth in the ribs. He laughs. He laughs all the time. He just...does it quietly.

Mitz is still confused by the whole situation. "I'll...ask? I can go ask. Seems important enough to you, so I can do that. What do I ask for? Cleaning place?" He's never been clean. He can't even imagine it.

(the dashing war photographer and werelion? yeah, there's a charm about her)
Inside his head? Seth grins. Maybe if he laughed out loud more, Seth'd know what he found funny more, and he could tell Mitz if he had a good sense of humour.

Snooze scrubs his fingers over his head and finds old blood there--how old, he doesn't know. Maybe the tattooing, maybe the mad rush and fight through the desert. Maybe older than that. "Yeah," he agrees. Now that he's got the idea, he can't seem to let go of it.

(The wildness of her in both ways fascinates Mitz)
Mitz has a great sense of humor! Probably. He thinks Seth is funny. Surely that counts for something?

Mitz frowns, worried, then scrambles to his feet. "I'll find one for you," he says, then runs out without another word. He's gone for far too long, in his opinion, but he ends up coming back around fifteen minutes later. He's out of breath. "Found one. The brides--the women--they have places that they said you can use. I know where it is. Come on!"

(amen Snooze would say if he at all believed in god in this 'verse)
Seth is pretty flattered, at least, so that's nice.

Snooze stashes his gun under his pillow and follows Mitz. He's unreasonably happy to be allowed to bathe. His back's gonna hurt like a bitch, but he won't stick to his clothes from the blood anymore; he won't be able to smell himself when he's trying to sleep, at least for a while. It'll be so good. Even if the water's cold--maybe especially if it's cold, with how hot it bloody is out here. "Thanks for this," he says, gruffly, as they go.

(Mitz agrees that there's sense in believing in any gods because as far as he can tell, they were just vampires who tricked humans along the way before they died)
Oh, that's restrained of him. Mitz imagined Seth being so much more animated once he learned that about Mitz.

Mitz glances at Snooze, then takes his arm and turns a sharp corner. "Don't--it's fine," he says, shaking his head. "You wanna sit in water. That's...fine, I think. I don't get it but that's what you want."

(That would make a lot of sense, except for sun gods)
Uh, inside, Seth is jumping around like a maniac. He can do that in real life but he figures that Mitz is still feeling a little delicate; he pats Mitz's face.

"You ever done it?" Snooze figures that's a fair question, if Mitz doesn't know why he wants to do it. That white paint is pretty, well, painted on.

Mitz bats at him. Stop that, he frowns. He's not delicate he's--uh. Okay, yeah, he's delicate. Damn.

Mitz shakes his head. He can't imagine using water to get clean. Warboys use cleansing salts or just don't bother. They're all dying, who cares if they're stinky? Or, in the case of some warboys, growing some weird stuff in weird places.

(snort)
Mitz rolls his eyes, growls, then snaps at Seth with a flash of fang. Don't start. Whippersnapper. He may be delicate but he doesn't take things lying down any longer, he's been told.

"Seems important, though," Mitz points out. Snooze was pretty worried about the whole thing. He wasn't really planning on going near the driver's things while they're still here, but if he's not bathed like Snooze wants does that mean he won't be able to touch anything in the room they're sharing? He should probably meet the standards of the person he's going to be following from now on.

Seth only just holds back from whacking Mitz in the face. Not that kind of thing, anyway, Seth teases him.

Snooze shrugs. Mitz looks pretty concerned; Snooze wonders if he's just noticing the dirt and grime for the first time. To be honest, Snooze can't help but wonder what he looks like under the paint. "Just feels good, is all."

Mitz is getting the distinct feeling that Seth is trying to make a dirty joke. Is he right?

"If you say so," Mitz shrugs. He can't really imagine it feeling all that good, but he doesn't make a habit of disagreeing with his betters. He turns another corner and walks Snooze into a pretty lavish bathroom with three empty baths. Mitz wrinkles his nose; the air smells damp and perfumey. He still can't really decide if he likes how all the fancy stuff that the Brides have smells. The Immortan had the Mothers mix up smells for them with oils and plants and sometimes it's all so sweet, getting into his head and mugging it up. "I'll...leave you to it? Uh. I'll find you some food, that's what I'll do."

He's absolutely not wrong. Seth laughs. See, he doesn't find it funny, but at least he recognises the joke. It's a start.

Snooze stares at the unexpected beauty of the room and breathes in deep, smelling soap and perfume. He moves forward and runs his hand on the smooth stone of the bath, the shining metal of the plumbing. He hasn't seen anything like this for a long time. "Welcome to join, if you want. Food's good too."

Mitz rolls his eyes, smiling. If Seth actually told the joke, Mitz might have found it funny. But all Seth did was insinuate, which was fun to work out. Not funny.

Mitz hovers where he's stood at the mouth of the room. "What do I have to do?" Thankfully he doesn't even consider that to be a sexual invitation. There's too much of a disconnect between him and Snooze for something like that. Otherwise he would be a mess of embarrassment right now.

Not even funny once Mitz got it? Aw, it's okay. They'll get there. See, Seth's just gotta get funnier, that's gonna help, too.

It could be, but honestly Snooze is so focused on being /clean/ and lying in a /bed/ and having /food/. Both of those things sound just as good as sex. He grips the taps and turns them, round and round, until there's a deep groan in the pipes and suddenly water floods out into the bath. It's got to be big enough for a dozen people. "Just take your clothes off and sit in the water." He starts to strip off his clothes, carefully, so they won't tear; he doesn't have any others.

Mitz is Seth's unfunny sire. If Seth gets funnier then Mitz will have to get more boring. Have a heart, Seth, Mitz has to keep Snooze entertained.

Mitz makes a face again because that sounds stupid. He picks at the white paint on his skin, what's left of the last time he had it put on him. It's not like he'll get it again unless he can talk some other warboy into helping him look right. But it's not like he would ever get it again anyway. It comes off with dust and sand eventually, anyway.
"Yeah, alright," he says, beginning to unbuckle the pants he's wearing. There are a lot of buckles. A lot are needed on top of each other as the pounds drop from warboys.

Oh, see, Seth understands. It's an uneasy balance kind of thing, is it? There's only a certain amount of funny allowed in the relationship?

Snooze slides into the water and nearly gasps, because it's /warm/. Of course it's warm--it's from a desert reservoir--but he'd been expecting it to be cold, like a river, like the ocean. It's not. It feels good, and he immediately pushes off the seat and dunks himself in the middle of the bath. When he surfaces, he's pushing his hands over his face and hair, but gritting his teeth. The water makes the tattoo /hurt/.

Unless Mitz does the--what are they called? Dad jokes? If he does the dad jokes, it might keep everything in check.

Mitz frowns at Snooze's reaction to the water because he's still trying to figure out what he's agreed to but, well. The fact is that in Mitz's head Snooze told him to try this, so he's going to do it. He kicks off his boots and gets into the tub to sit in water.
Which is warm. And smells weird.
Mitz watches the less caked on paint drift away from him in the water, creating this liquid cloud of white all around him.
"What now?" Mitz asks.

Seth will have to get him a book on the subject. He can learn by rote until he figures out how to make them on his own.

Snooze dunks himself again to deal with the pain, to normalise it. When he surfaces, he settles on the seat next to Mitz again. "You rub off the dirt and enjoy the warmth." It's hard to explain if Mitz doesn't already enjoy it.

Mitz smiles vaguely. There are books on the dad jokes? (Yes, Mitz, there are. I bought one for my dad.)

Mitz isn't sure what's going on so confusion is overtaking enjoyment for now. It'll take a third or fourth bath for him to really enjoy it. Relax and enjoy it. As it is, he follows Snooze's instructions, rubbing his arms and chest to clean the paint and dirt from him. His skin feels itchy as soon as he does it but he notices that Snooze doesn't scratch at himself so, biting his lip, Mitz ignores the feeling.

There has to be. It's a cultural phenomenon. Dad jokes for dummies, Seth's sure he's seen that around while out with Carlisle. (SAMESIES)

Snooze finally tears himself away from his own scrubbing and sluicing to simply rest on the seat for a moment, his elbows propped up to keep his sore back from the stone edge. He looks at Mitz from under deeply-hooded eyelids, wondering what it must be like for a war boy to have a bath for the first time.
It's as he's looking that he's struck by the sudden realisation that, as the paint comes off, as the years and wrinkles and dirt peel away, that war boy is a young man, and he is startlingly attractive.

Mitz's expression changes slightly, which might be enough to warn Seth that the subject is changing abruptly. Does Carlisle have children? (SNAP)

Mitz rubs at his face last, watching the black paint wash into the white of the water, and feels ashamed of his bare skin. He puts his hands up and into his short hair, the wet of it making it feel so obvious that he has hair again. "The warm feels nice," Mitz attempts, trying to distract Snooze from seeing him like this, judging him for how he looks now.

Seth sobers slightly. Sort of. He and his ex-wife were foster parents. He still keeps in contact with several of the children they raised more long-term. Why?

"Good." Snooze realises that he's opened his eyes more properly to see Mitz as his features emerge from their paint, and he makes himself relax again. "Helps with sore muscles."

Mitz shakes his head. No reason. Mitz just doesn't know much about Carlisle and he feels as though he should be paying more attention to what's going on with Seth and stop being so self-obsessed. Time to stop being so selfish.

"Is that what's wrong?" Mitz asks, referring to Snooze's winces when he first got into the water. Life is pain so Mitz isn't quite sure what Snooze means by 'helps'. He's getting used to not knowing exactly what Snooze is saying.

Mitz isn't selfish. He's kind of had a lot going on, in case he hasn't noticed.

Snooze twists slightly, gesturing to his back. "Tattoo is still raw."

Mitz laughs once, quietly. He's not the only one. The world is bigger than Mitz's problems.

"Oh," Mitz says stupidly, looking over and absently picking at some of his scarification. He ghosts his fingers lightly over 'universal donor' branded into Snooze's back. "I have stuff for that. The organic--Jerel, my brother? He gave me stuff back when I was getting cut for the cause. Helps some."

Mitz has had pretty big problems. And Seth hasn't really had any problems, so, it's okay.

Snooze breathes in at the whispery touch, the almost touch of Mitz's fingers. It feels good, not like being slapped on the back in celebration or having his shoulder gripped in desperation. "That'd be good," Snooze agrees. It doesn't cause him terrible pain like it did at the start--he's gotten used to the tugging and stinging, to always feeling bruised. But relief might be nice.

Mitz looks very patient with Seth's insistence that he doesn't need attention. "Life doesn't need to be problematic to keep going on," he says.

"Can go after you're done here," Mitz says. He thinks he remembers where he stashed it, anyway. "How long do you sit in the water?"
He looks at his bare arms. He doesn't think he's ever seen his skin without at least a little white dust on him. He feels weird. Exposed.

"You are not wrong," Seth admits. His mouth crooks in a half-grin as he thinks about how he almost bought Carlisle ties and socks for his last birthday. As if either of them need reminding that Carlisle is getting older while Seth is eternally, creepily teenaged.

"Your skin does a thing when you're done." Snooze has been in longer, so his fingers are starting to prune already. He settles back on the seat and shows Mitz, extending his hand.

"So," Mitz says, thinking about his words for a moment before speaking again. "So, Seth, I am going to take more interest in what's going on with your life. With your...human? Boyfriend? Lover?"

Mitz grabs Snooze's hand and studies his fingers closely. "That--that doesn't make sense," he argues. "Aquacola shouldn't dry you out. What's...?" He looks at Snooze, a little stricken, still gripping his hand.
