II: [Accidental Video/ Action]
[Neutral: Beaten] Take it like a man.
neutralbyforce wrote in rubycity_rp
[Though having been brought up to date on how the communicators work, Switzerland has never been very good with technology. As it hangs from his belt he is unaware that it is on and broadcasting his roaming to the world at large. The camera documents his movements from the train station along the wall until he reaches a tower. Climbing to the top with little difficulty, stairs holding nothing on the rugged terrain of his beloved Alps, Vash emerges onto the observation deck. It takes him a moment to fully grasp what lays before him.]

...[His sigh is audible.] Damn. This is too beautiful a view to be wasted on this wretched place. [His eye travels along the unbroken wall.] They were right... not that I expected anyone to be lying to me, but I suppose I hoped they might be mistaken... We really are trapped here.

[Slumping to the ground with his back against the tower wall, Switzerland takes a few minutes to simply breath the crisp air. He always felt better at higher elevations and his mind is now fully cleared of the fog of his arrival.]

A beautiful view...?

[[Theta's mostly just being nosy, but she's also trying to be sociable.]]

[Having not realized his communicator was on, Vash is startled by this interruption to his relaxation. He fumbles with it, bringing it around to show his face.]

Ah... Yeah. [He quickly recovers, setting his face into its usual expressionless state.] I mean, it's breathtaking up here. Not as picturesque as back home, but still... [Moves communicator to show view from where he sits, revealing the (at the moment fairy-tale-esque) city, wall, and valleys beyond.]

It's hard to believe that this place is as sinister as I've been told it is.

[Video] Sorry about dropping our other thread, I just noticed LJ ate the notif. Want to continue it?

Mm, though this isn't the usual city. Our captors sometimes change the scenery on us, and more often than not we're in an abandoned city with a river of blood.

[Video] Sure, if you want. :3

I've been told that's the case. Even then, though, it would be a breathtaking, albeit slightly gruesome, view. [Rolls shoulders.] I'm finally starting to feel like myself again, not some puppet with broken strings. There is something to be said for higher altitudes and clearing the mind.

[[She chuckles softly.]]

You would like higher altitudes, wouldn't you? Mn, I can't wait until we go back to our usual place... Then I'll have something to show you that you'll also probably like.

[Vietnam saw Switzerland head aimlessly, and curiosity gets the better of her, so she tries to spot him. So she follows his trail, from what was documented, right to the tower. It's been a while since she's scaled it, so time to do it again. She follows after him, still a fair bit away, before reaching the top.]

My goodness. [Usually she was much better at this. Time to increase her training regime] Ah, Switzerland, enjoying the view?

[Having heard her coming, Vash isn't startled by her appearance.]

Yeah. Reminds me of back home in the Alps... Though this scenery is a pale shadow by comparison, it's something at least.

[He scoots over so there is room on the deck for her to sit next to him, should she choose.]

[She breaths deeply, before moving over to sit next to him] Thank you. [And looks out.]

Oh, I see, it does look a little similar. I would love to see your Alps again. The pictures do not do it much justice, either.

[Vash pauses, struggling with his own internal desire for privacy... but the need to reach out to someone at least slightly familiar overwhelms his usually terse nature.]

If... When we get out of here, you should come for a visit. I'm sure Lili would love to have another girl around for a bit; brothers aren't quite as much fun, I would imagine.

[Vietnam has won her way into his heart, at least partially, for appreciating his homeland in the same way he does.]

At least you don't have to go through it alone, Switzerland. Please remember that.

[Switzerland frowns slightly, never one to admit that he needs anyone's help or sympathy... but in this warped city, he has to adapt to new rules if he's going to survive. There's always the chance that none of them will remember any of this anyway once they leave...]

Thank you, Hungary, I will keep that in mind.

...I don't believe we've met.

Smoker. I'm a marine. Or was.

A marine? Then you must know a thing or two about fighting. I am Switzerland... or Vash, if that's less confusing.
