Re: Oscillations

Qingying grew more solemn, thinking about the messages being passed from Laurie. Do you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, Laurie? Are you confident in yourself? Because sure, love for oneself and confidence and healing are also gained by helping others… but I don’t want you to help onl...

Re: Oscillations

Hitwizard, hmm… He was not surprised. And there are many things you are good at, he smiled, Laurie was focused, and would try at what he wanted to do. And you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn more things, too. He just… didn’t want Laurie to throw himself at something because he felt that he ...

Re: Oscillations

What about people who did not need to be protected? And why? Everyone could protect another person when needed – anyone could be a protector. Why did Laurie want to identify himself as that specifically, all of the time?

Re: Oscillations

Qingying chuckled, and then he decided to be direct.
Did Laurie feel, that aside from protector, he couldn’t be anything else? Did Laurie cling to that role, because he didn’t know what else he could be?

Re: Oscillations

Qingying smiled. Protecting another was good, but only if they needed it – otherwise it’d be forcing one’s will onto another. It would not be helping, and instead would be selfishness. He preferred to think of it as assistance ; to help others if and when they required it (and sure, sometimes they d...

Re: Oscillations

It’s quite cute, too, Qingying smiled, as the bubble and chick enlarged. Those big, puppy-dog eyes, fluffy, triangular-blob body, and those little wings. Awkward, maybe, but cute. It looked very soft. Qingying had not really thought about it before, but now that he had to express it to Laurie, he co...

Re: Oscillations

Qingying laughed lightly, not touching Laurie’s hair, but holding him with Mahra nonetheless. It was a little amusing, that Laurie only believed him after he’d said all of Laurie’s flaws . Perhaps it was important to Laurie, to know that people saw them – were not blind – and liked him anyway, becau...

Re: Oscillations

Qingying shook his head and looked at him. You’re not a monster, Laurie. Laurie was not a monster, but he also wasn’t perfect. Like he’d said, Laurie had flaws. Laurie himself had said he was abrasive. He had a temper. He became angry when he was upset. He didn’t tell people when he was upset. He hi...

Re: Oscillations

I don’t find there’s much to dislike about children. Even if they have flaws… I don’t blame them, because they’re children. Children are blank canvases; how they are depends on the environment. Children should be nurtured, not harshly snipped. He gently stroked the bird. He rarely did this, preferri...

Re: Oscillations

Hmm. He didn’t really want to answer, not because he didn’t want Laurie to know, but because he thought his answers would not cover everything. It would definitely be lacking, and it’d bother him later, when he realised words he didn’t say. Well, he swung the hammock a couple of mines, first of all,...

Didn’t Laurie’s mother, or Mahra? Or did they not count as ‘not wanting something’, either?

Re: Oscillations

So what Laurie was looking for was not why he cared , but what he liked about them? He wanted specifics, put into words? (Which was somewhat difficult, because care, when put into words, was limited by them.) Love, too, because how easy was it to put into words why you loved someone? And didn't peop...

Re: Oscillations

He blinked, and really wanted to fall back and proceed with a series of questions starting with ‘what could I gain from you two’, because he didn’t have an answer , but that was also true. He tilted his head. What I want… you for? That sounded a little disconcerting, actually. Laurie had said people...

Re: Oscillations

Uh. He had a reason why he cared about his brother? Well, he didn’t really have a reason why he cared about them. He squinted up at the sky. Didn’t people just… come to… care about other people? If someone met someone they liked, they might come to care for them. People born to the same family, if t...

Re: Oscillations

Qingying dipped his head; he knew Laurie wanted to defend himself. He didn’t mean he’d be Laurie’s guard dog – he hadn’t been, for many he’d watched over. Just as Laurie cared about Qingying, Qingying cared about Laurie and Mahra. He didn’t think Laurie was, or would be helpless, but he would watch ...

Re: Oscillations

He dipped his head; he’d expected that, and other people he knew had requested the same.
Until you can use them, I hope you can trust that I will do so, for you. Even after you learn them, I hope you will trust me to do so, too.

Re: Oscillations

Qingying was connected to Laurie, and thus was aware of fluctuating emotions and distress. Rather than waking him up, Qingying had eased the particularly stressing or lengthy nightmares away, not with magic but with his own energy control. - He shook his head with a small smile. They were spells tha...

Re: Oscillations

He shook his head. He wasn’t hurt. Qingying didn’t need to sleep, and admittedly he was glad for that, because there were many nights, many journeys, he lay with his eyes open. He liked to be aware, partly for a sense of safety. Qingying chuckled. Why else did he have spells constantly informing him...

Re: Oscillations

He tilted his head. Because he was checking Laurie’s blankets- But that answer probably wouldn’t suffice. That was the answer though, he frowned at the ground.

Re: Oscillations

It was a pretty common thing for parents to do… though Qingying was also not really their parent. He knew Laurie would probably find it strange, and didn’t blame him for it. He smiled at the little bird hopping in his palm.
