What is mutant? What is normal? (OTA)  
Charles sat outside the cafe with a cup of tea and a small wrapped package. He had found Raven's wedding gift and gone ahead to have it wrapped. The tea was a means of celebrating that purchase, he supposed, amused by the idea.

He was feeling pensive, thinking of those he'd met here, those whose lives were twined with his now: Peter most recently, Mattie, Erik and Anna, Raven of course, Lydia, Draco, young Angel, Dr. Cooper, others. Jack perhaps most profoundly.

How had he come to have such connections? He shook his head, chuckling to himself without being aware of it, before looking up, abashed, murmuring, "beg pardon."

Lisbeth Salander: fuck youwaspofagirl on August 7th, 2012 12:45 am (UTC)
Lisbeth had been seated in a nearby table, reading over the book she'd checked out of the library on string theory, the coffee she'd ordered getting cold in front of her as she'd gotten into a particularly interesting part of her book, only to be brought out of her thoughts by the man's chuckling.

She didn't answer, just gave him a slightly irritated raised and pierced brow.

Biting back any response, his mouth in a line, Charles nodded, chastened.

She was one of the more interesting village inhabitants he'd come across. He took a sip of tea, noting her book title, but not, for the moment saying anything more. After all, if it was one thing Charles Xavier was not, it was rude.

She was silent for a while, but still looking at him, expressionless.

"Why are you laughing?" she asked, voice quiet, as she watched him.

"Beg pardon?" Charles asked, looking up again; he'd been lost in thought again. "Oh ... well, I suppose I was laughing because my life here is quite different from my life where I am from. I do apologize for disturbing your reading, though. I have an acquaintance here who is studying String Theory here, actually."

"I don't see how that's funny." Lisbeth stated, confused. Her life was different here too, to a point. She didn't have to worry about her father here. Anyone coming after her. No one trying to control her life.

Other than the village itself. Which was kind of irritating, but not nearly as much.

She looked down at the book, "Yes, Dr. Sheldon Cooper at Lemondrop Labs."

He was the only one she knew of, so she made the assumption. Not that Lisbeth had ever met the man. She'd simply gotten his name and what he was studying from the miniscule amount of computer records there were in this town.

"Have you met Dr. Cooper?" Charles asked, bewildered and intrigued. What was humorous, he already knew, was highly subjective.

"I haven't." there was a fractional shake of her head.

"All right."

Interesting.

"Are you a scientist?"
Lisbeth Salander: readingwaspofagirl on August 7th, 2012 01:37 am (UTC)
"No." she'd never even graduated High School. Lisbeth reached for her cool coffee to drink.
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: grin!mutiegroovy on August 7th, 2012 01:39 am (UTC)
"Ah."

Charles' mouth quirked again. From awkwardness to an awkward attempt at conversation. "This is light reading then?"
Lisbeth Salanderwaspofagirl on August 7th, 2012 01:46 am (UTC)
"It interests me." she answered, "I like... to know things."

Math, physics, biology, history, what other people were doing and why they did it.
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: grin!mutiegroovy on August 7th, 2012 01:48 am (UTC)
Taking another sip of tea, Charles nodded. "Then we have that in common. I'm Charles. Charles Xavier." James. James Bond. He could hear that in Jack's voice and it brightened his smile.

Claire Bennet: smile - pretty and brightits_notluck on August 7th, 2012 07:13 pm (UTC)
"For what?" Claire stood near his table, having just walked out of the cafe, and she eyed him with a small amused smile.

"You looked like you were enjoying your thoughts." She pointed out as she tilted her head to the side.
(Not) Charles Frances Xaviermutiegroovy on August 7th, 2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
"I was, I suppose," Charles admitted. "Hello, Claire." He smiled then. "How have you been?" It had been months since he'd seen the girl.
Claire Bennetits_notluck on August 7th, 2012 08:05 pm (UTC)
"Hello, Charles." She smiled back before shrugging a bit. "Can't complain, just keeping busy."

"How are you doing?"
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: grin!mutiegroovy on August 7th, 2012 08:08 pm (UTC)
"Fine, fine. May I invite you to join me? Get you a cup of tea?" he asked, smiled.
Claire Bennet: smile - pretty and brightits_notluck on August 8th, 2012 05:53 pm (UTC)
"Sure, I'll sit for a bit but I already have a coffee." She smiled as she held up her cup, moving to sit down across from him. "Didn't get much sleep last night, so I have a feeling I'll be drinking a lot more coffee after this one."
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: Hrmmutiegroovy on August 8th, 2012 05:57 pm (UTC)
"Is everything all right?" he asked, leaning forward solicitously.
Claire Bennet: always looking over her shoulderits_notluck on August 8th, 2012 06:00 pm (UTC)
"Everything is fine." Well, she was probably spreading herself a bit thin but it wasn't like she couldn't survive it.

"I just have a one year old with a cold."
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: grin!mutiegroovy on August 8th, 2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
"Ah." Charles smiled. "I see. That can be taxing, I suppose."
Claire Bennet: smile - pretty and brightits_notluck on August 8th, 2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
"It is. He's getting better which means he's getting back all the energy he's been missing for the last couple days. Unfortunately, Mommy doesn't get the energy as quickly as he does." She sipped her coffee while sitting back.

"So how have you been?"
(Not) Charles Frances Xaviermutiegroovy on August 8th, 2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
"Oh, fine. No sick toddlers to deal with," he told her with a smile. "But things are all right otherwise?"
Claire Bennetits_notluck on August 9th, 2012 04:03 am (UTC)
Her mind briefly flickered to Nikola but then she quickly veered away from that topic as she recalled the man sitting across from her was a telepath. She quickly threw in random thoughts as she thought about the video store, classes, Peter, her son, missing Galen...

"Yeah, just living." She replied with a slight smile. "Nothing too exciting to report, I guess."
(Not) Charles Frances Xavier: Hrmmutiegroovy on August 9th, 2012 02:13 pm (UTC)
Ah, but Charles was far too polite to peer into Claire's mind without reason - he had no reason. "A little bit of ... peace, I suppose we can call it - isn't a bad thing?"
Claire Bennetits_notluck on August 9th, 2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
Which was nice but Claire has had a lot of experience with those who wouldn't care about privacy or reason.

"It isn't." She agreed before shrugging. "But it does make me worry about when the other shoe is going to drop."
