Yrael and Teja step through the door and out into a deserted alleyway in New Orleans. It's evening, here, around eight o'clock with the sun just having fully set. The people in the street before them haven't noticed them yet.

"All right... to find a clothing shop."

Teja nods. "One that sells tea shirts," he says, "with the right sort of meaningful writing on."

He still doesn't understand what the shirts have to do with tea, but not everything has to make sense. Names, especially, are sometimes rather cryptic.

"I do not know what a Decatur is," Teja says, "even though it sounds vaguely Latin; I will simply follow you there."

Yes, decaetor -- it makes no sense at all. Teja follows, hoping the place itself will be less puzzling.

Teja actually spots it soon, despite the fact that his eyes stray to the train tracks again and again -- he doesn't know what those are good for.

"There it is!" he says. "They sell big, easy shirts, then?"

ostro_goth: (Irritated)
"Ahh," Teja says, nodding. Some cities had had nicknames in his time, as well.

And then he turns, almost alarmed, at the sound of the train whistle.-

ostro_goth: (Astonished)
"What is that?" Teja asks. Yrael is not taking cover, so it is most likely not some sort of attack.

Date: 2008-03-27 04:05 pm (UTC)From: [personal profile] ostro_goth
ostro_goth: (Fascinated)
Teja observes, fascinated.

"Men mentioned cars and planes to me," he says, "fire arms, and electric. Why did nobody ever speak of those? They are -- amazing! I wish they had been invented at my time!"

Date: 2008-03-27 04:34 pm (UTC)From: [personal profile] ostro_goth
ostro_goth: (Grim)
"They are," Teja agrees.

Pause.

"What one might do -- how one might run a realm well, using those! Be it war or peace, supplies for an army or traded goods, workers that go where their hands are needed..."

Pause.

"And all men tell me is, 'Oh look, you dead barbarian, we have things that go bang, and things that go whoosh and things that go beep to amaze you'. This, however, is a new invention that is indeed truly useful!"

ostro_goth: (Amused)
Teja gives a brief, fond chuckle at that. "Ahhh - but you introduced me to trains, also," he says, following.

It would not occur to Teja not to take the stairs. He has seen escalators, and also elevators, in his forays to the modern world; but secretly, he thinks they're for old women with heavy bags, and for young women with small children, respectively.

Not something he would wish to use.

Teja follows him inside, and looks around.

The choices are quite amazing.

"I would have one that is black, if that is permissible?" he says.

"I do not know -- perhaps one should wear colours for such a concert?" Teja says. "I know not much about the symbols and colours of those clothes, and what opinions and loyalties they represent. Only that they seem meaningful. Eirene gave me one with her symbol on."

Pause, during which he browses the racks. "What, for example, would this one mean?"

It is brown, and says 'ARCHAEOLOGISTS DO IT DOWN HOLES'

Date: 2008-03-27 05:58 pm (UTC)From: [personal profile] ostro_goth
ostro_goth: (Shocked)
Teja quickly puts the brown t-shirt away again. "I would have nothing to do with it, then," he says. "For the innuendo -- the digging up of old things might be interesting. I was told that the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, that Pliny wrote about, have been found again -- the men who did that would have been archaeologists?"
