[week 30, day 5][video]

[Dick stares down at the device one last time and takes a deep breath before very deliberately pressing the button.] 

Umm... hi. 

[He waves and gives a charming, if lopsided, grin. It's quite visible without the cowl hiding his features.]

My name's Dick. And yeah, I've heard every joke you can think of, I'm sure. 
I'm... sort of new here.

[He doesn't explain that he's been here for a few weeks, watching, survelling, learning what he can. He may not be as paranoid as Bruce, but he's learned his lessons well. He won't jump into any of this blind.]

I guess it's time for me to introduce myself and see where I fit in, here, right?

[He gives another winning smile. He's had enough of his own company. He has never been the solitary creature Bruce is, even during his own time as Batman. He misses being around other people, and at least, now, he's relatively sure it's safe to poke his head out from the forest and say hello.]

Just wanted to... be neighborly, I suppose. Maybe I'll be meeting some of you soon. Until then or the next time I try to use this thing, bye...

[He gives another crooked grin and salutes the screen, turning it off with a sigh.]

[video] backdateeeddd.
[Oh wow, it's someone new trying to be outgoing and make contact. Rin is glad to help him im this.]

Nice to meet you! I'm Rin, and if you have any questions, I'm around.

[And really, the way this is phrased already tells a lot about Dick's circumstances -- that he's been observing things for a while -- but really. No sense to being paranoid.]

How long have you been here?

Re: [video] *snickers* a protege of Batman not being paranoid??? :P
[Dick bows slightly and smiles.]

Hello, Rin. Pleased to make your acquaintance, and I appreciate the offer of help.

[He gives another smile, a bit more genuine. She seems quite nice.]

It's hard to tell for sure, but a few weeks, I think. Not very long, really.

[video] *laughs* Nah, RIN has a tendency to be so as well.
Pleased to meet you, too!

[Smiles back.]

A few weeks? Oh, but then surely you've already had opportunity to adjust to life in this place, at least.

Re: [video] *laughs* Nah, RIN has a tendency to be so as well.
[Dick just shrugs and gives another smile. He's gotten used to the fact that he's here, but he hasn't exactly made his presence well-known, really, until now, except to his brothers, and he definitely hasn't let Batman be seen...]

A little, I suppose.
Oct. 28th, 2011 04:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, only a little? Do you still need help with something?

Re: [video]
I'm trying to find a way out of here, back to my own world...

[Dick decided it doesn't hurt to be honest that he isn't here by choice. So many here seem satisfied, content even, as if they've been here long enough that it's become another home to them. He doesn't ever want to be here that long.]
Nov. 1st, 2011 09:19 pm (UTC)
... ah.

Sorry, can't help you there.

[And she looks a little regretful, but not too bitter. Not anymore. She'll take things as she gets them, now. She can do that.]

Re: [video]
That's okay. At least you're being honest about it.

[He'd rather someone tell him they didn't know than lead him on with false hope.]

I'm still looking, though. I won't give up until I know something, one way or another...
Nov. 1st, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
Why wouldn't I be?

[Slightly quizzical look, and then she looks a bit bashful.]

And, ah. Gotta warn you, though. I've been here for over a year, and I've found no way out. And it's not for lack of looking.

[Hastily waving arms!]

Not saying there absolutely is none, of course! Just... well... I guess it would be good to get some kind of footing here, in case you're in for the long haul. Is all.

Re: [video]
[Dick shrugs. Everyone has moments they aren't honest, for one reason or another, even if it's just with themselves.]

A yeah, huh? Hmmmm. Well, we're working on it together, now, right? Maybe it won't be much longer...

[He decides maybe he should go on another scavenging mission. His shelter is fine, for now, but will need more work before cold weather sets in, if he's still here. She is correct about making sure he's settled properly.]

And don't worry, I'm making myself a place here, just in case.
