One-way conversation with Clark...
which turns into a peaceful walk, then devolves into a snow fight.
1stmacleod: (forge)
((Will be backdated sometime in the near future))

Connor's been working at the forge from late summer when he got it up and running, all through the fall. It's kept him busy, not coming inside until late most evenings, but at least it does make him easy to find. He seems to find some quiet joy in experimenting and playing with metal, getting his hand back into the trade. He doesn't say much about what he's making, and mostly calls it mucking around, yet most of his friends will be getting gifts off the anvil this Christmas.

For Kai, along with baking supplies, peppermint bark, a luxurious scarf and gloves, and breakfast in bed, there is his ultimate triumph, an iron rose. It's not large, but it represents the height of his current skills.

For Duncan, there's a set of knives, practical enough to use in the kitchen, but also nice enough to hang on the wall.

Clark and April get separate gifts, but they certainly make a set. Each of them has a torc that ends in leaves, mountain ash for April, and oak leaves for Clark.

For Balthazar, there's a tin of good cocoa mix from France, and a cloak pin with celtic knots at the ends. He could probably get away with wearing it just as a brooch, but for all Connor knows, he's outdated enough to still wear a cloak.

For Jelani there's a small but elegant knife, with a short note to let her know it was the first one off his new forge. The first one he considered a full success, anyway.

Connor does not invite Clark to Kai's house for boozing it up. This might be partly because it is, in his mind, still her house (when they pick one together, it will be theirs), but mostly it's because Connor strongly suspects he's being a bad influence. Whether or not he does ever get in trouble over this, he feels he probably should. If John had lived to Clark's age, and Duncan or somebody else took him out drinking, they'd probably meet with Connor's left hook.

He knows his way by PINpoint to the towns below the mountains that hide the Sanctuary where he and Kairos live, though. If Clark doesn't know French, he'll probably look like a tourist. He might anyway. The immortal has spent more time in France than nearly any other country, though, and blends in even in the modern day and age. He sends coordinates, and meets the young man in a quiet but not at all shady back alley. It's too nice or too small of a town to have shady alleys. It's sunny and cobblestoned instead, and cool but not freezing. Connor slouches against a wall in his new charcoal grey coat, looking relatively at home.
