"a spider so nice" (klavier's reading room redux: private)  
*After his conversation with Kristoph Gavin (managingchaos) in the Night Room, he has followed through on his promise to arrange a meeting between Kristoph and the alternate of his brother to whom he wished to speak.

It had been no surprise to him that Klavier still favoured the reading room as a place to relax, even as an older man and even taking into account the events that had occurred there. It had also been no surprise that Klavier had agreed to talk to this alternate of Kristoph, given the kindness that the man had shown him as a teenager in the Dressing Room. That much had been easy.

He arrives for the meeting a little earlier than arranged, keenly aware of the need for privacy and determined to ensure that the study is empty of any eavesdroppers.  He pushes open the door cautiously*


Klavier?

Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider's web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.

-- E. B. White

[ He'd run into his younger alternate in here a short while back. While exploring, it had been rather surreal to come back into this room that had so much history with him and this room alone.

Right now, he was standing over a desk that was present when the room was first made-- the place was a whole lot bigger, now it led into a library of sorts, big enough to accommodate many, many guests and a silent area for reading.

The desk he was currently observing had a rather cute picture of Edgeworth looking into the distance, and he couldn't help but smile as he looked at it. It was... memorable. One of his 'special collection', rather. And he held the frame, lifting it as he absently touched the surface.

He missed him, a lot. But his older lover was used to not being around him, so it worked out. They were both busy men.

It didn't mean it didn't bother him to be apart.

He paused when he heard his name, still holding the frame and he had to stop himself from smiling too much when he saw Professor Edgeworth. As much as he resembled Herr Miles, he wasn't him, right?

So he stepped out where he could be seen and gave him a little wave. ]


Herr Professor. Guten Abend.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Tiredprofesseurdeloi on April 26th, 2008 06:53 pm (UTC)
aksjglkhjgj!! That picture is so CUTE!
Ah, Klavier.

*He's tired and it shows. Concern about this meeting prevented him from sleeping well the previous night and in fact he has not done so for days, perhaps even weeks - he actually can't remember.

He's glad to see Klavier looking happy, despite the imminent meeting, but the younger man's smile is infectious and he can't help but return it*


This place is much more vast than I remember it only a week ago. I thought it advisable to arrive early and ensure that we are alone before your brother's alternate arrives.
rockingtruth on April 26th, 2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
SEE HOW MUCH HE LOVES BEAUTY ;D
[ A look of concern crosses his features, he's familiar enough with Edgeworth's behavior to know that the man before him is tired, but he manages to keep an optimistic approach.

He nods at the words, looking up. ]


Ja... it changed when I entered it. My younger alternate was amused... I spoke to him as well.

[ He smiles a bit, moving his hand behind his neck and rubbing it absently. ]

Herr Kristoph helped me a lot when I was... well, younger, here. It is the least I can do for him. But, Herr Professor...

[ He looks curious. ]

What exactly will I have to do...?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loiprofesseurdeloi on April 26th, 2008 09:01 pm (UTC)
In my head, an Edgey is facepalming <3
*A worried look crosses his face at that information.*

Your younger self is still here, then? I have not seen him for some days, and I rather hoped that if you were here he must have returned home. *He frowns* I worry that he is in further danger if he remains here.

*He glances away at the question, unwilling to broach the subject before Kristoph arrives*

I believe that he wishes to ask for your help with a... certain situation. He assured me that there was no danger in it, but... I think that will be for you to decide.

*He looks back at the younger man then, with some degree of severity in both his eyes and his tone*

But Klavier, I do not want you to agree to help him against your own instincts. Even if he did help you... before. If you are not comfortable with anything he asks of you, then you must say so. Do you understand?
rockingtruth on April 26th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
That face can be put to better use on nicer body parts~~
Ja, he is. Apparently he is from a time where he has still not departed this place.

[ His expression is calm though. ]

I have a feeling he might surprise us all. But lets keep him uninvolved with whatever this is.

[ Raising his gaze, he watched Edgeworth for a bit, curiosity getting the better of him ]

Herr Professor, I may want that monster brought down, but I will not risk my best judgment to do so. I'm... [ He sighs, moving a hand to his opposite arm holding the frame with Edgeworth's photograph in it, looking to a side ] I'm not going to become a burden on those who care for me by mentally upsetting myself. That's why...

[ He smiles up assuringly at him. ] I'll do what is right as long as it's able to be done, ja?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Gaze into Distanceprofesseurdeloi on April 26th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
Although not in Klav's absence, I hope. He hasn't been gone THAT long XD
*He nods, listening to Klavier speak as he checks the room for intruders.

I would prefer that. I promised to help him if I could, and I do not want him to come to harm either through me or through inattention on my part.

*There's a wry laugh as he realises what he's saying - damn this place for making these kinds of conversations a minefield*

Although... you know that already. As such, I think I should probably defer to your judgement on the matter.

*Having checked the room over he stands in front of Klavier again, runs his hand through his hair and nods gravely*

You suffered enough when you were here as a boy. I do not want that to be repeated in any way, physically or emotionally.

*A small smile tugs at his lips*

And I would say the same regardless of who your loved ones were. For your own sake only, Klavier.

Herr Miles, not on anyone else's body parts~~ ;o;
[ He doesn't say anything to that, just moves his hands to his pockets, smiling to himself as he looks at the photo frame he's holding, momentarily distracted. Then, he sighs and looks up, nodding to him. ]

Whatever can be done, then.

[ He can't help but add ]

There's a lot of pain I would have gone through as a boy had it not been for you, Herr Professor. I'll never put that effort of yours to waste.

Not on ANYONE else's? lol 1/2
[he stepped inside, having followed Edgeworth at a distance. He'd have to mention something about that later, but he didn't think Edgeworth actually cared if he was being tailed by someone.

He cleared his throat, pushing the glasses up his nose]

Are we all alive in here? Your holiness, where might you be? Klavier, are you in here, as well?
rockingtruth on April 27th, 2008 06:04 am (UTC)
Not anyone else's but Klav's! ;o;
[ He looks up, tensing for just a brief moment, before he relaxes. No, this isn't his Kristoph, or the devil Kristoph. This was the Kristoph who gave him hope that things could be different.

He regrets that he did, since they didn't go that way with him, but at the same time, he appreciates the kindness. So he waits until he's in, before he calls ]


Right here, Herr Kristoph. [ Then, to Edgeworth, with a raised eyebrow. ]

"Your Holiness?"

Post Leib Escape Thread!
*It's been a while since he's ventured into Klavier's study - the last time he did was the day that they met to discuss the capture of Der Leihaftige. It was less than two weeks ago and yet it feels like months.

This time he doesn't hesitate at the door, concern for Klavier's wellbeing propelling him in with no time for ceremony or etiquette. Once inside, he heads straight for the area with the desk, where he last saw the younger man.*


Klavier? Are you in here?
rockingtruth on May 29th, 2008 07:39 am (UTC)
[ He's holding his phone, a message just came in as Edgeworth entered and strolls out, looking rather pale, the phone's display still lit. ]

H-Herr Professor...

[ He looks up at him, and then walks over, shoving the phone towards him so he can read what the text message says. ]

"The Devil walks free."

[ He feels sick, as though something bad is happening and he moves a hand to his chest as he looks to a side ]

I just got it... from my younger self... I did not think things would happen this way again...

[ This had happened in his history. And to think it was repeating itself now... ]

He's with him.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Look To Sideprofesseurdeloi on May 29th, 2008 01:17 pm (UTC)
*The relief at seeing this Klavier unharmed lasts only a moment when he sees the expression on the younger man's face, and reads the message on the cellphone that he's holding out.

He puts a hand on Klavier's arm to steady him and points to the chair next to the desk, his face grim and his voice taking on an edge of urgency despite his effort to keep it calm*


Sit down, Klavier. You have to think - where is he? If this happened to you... can you remember where you were?
rockingtruth on May 29th, 2008 05:49 pm (UTC)
[ He's trying his best to remain calm, trying his utmost best-- but he can't relax now.

If he stops this, he knows either way, what happened to him will happen anyway-- the very reason that he even left this place, because of what happened after it.

He moves a hand to his forehead, trying to remember. He doesn't want to-- it's terrifying. But he calms himself enough to think on it ]


A dungeon. He created it. There was a room with handcuffs-- we were in there for three minutes, and for each minute, the handcuff lock was timed an hour. That was the reason my younger self... I-- couldn't escape.

[ He looks up at Edgeworth, tense as ever but still managing to maintain his cool ]

We're far from them. We have to run.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Glasses Downprofesseurdeloi on May 29th, 2008 10:16 pm (UTC)
*He puts his hand on Klavier's shoulder to try and calm him, and he can feel the tension under his fingers as the younger man gives voice to his memory*

But this time we can stop it happening, Klavier.

*When Klavier looks up, he nods, steps back as the younger man hurriedly gets to his feet. And then without another word he follows Klavier out of the room, at a run*
