[Kieren turns on his phone, revealing his face. Of course, he's not wearing his makeup, because even if he isn't 'alive' anymore, he isn't going to hide himself. It will--he'll go back to the way he was in Eudio, eventually. Hopefully. Still, others will see a pale face, milky white eyes. Basically, the face of a doe-eyed dead boy.

He smiles a little, doing his best to not be nervous, or awkward. He succeeds on the first, probably not as well on the second. He speaks, his accent something from northern England]


So hi, I'm sure some of you have seen me about, but I'm Kieren Walker? Your resident PDS sufferer. [Might as well be upfront.]

So, I just snagged a job at the Cadelle Museum of Art, and I know that I've already talked to a few of you about you're uh--lack of art knowledge? [He rubs the back of of his neck, laughing lightly.]

I just thought, if anyone was interested, I wouldn't mind maybe giving some tours, or at least teaching a bit of art? I don't have any real formal training--but I've taught myself a lot on my own. [And was good enough to get accepted/scholarships to universities, twice--but he still doubts his own art, sometimes, so he doesn't mention that.]

I'm also always looking for people to paint? Just--just portraits.

Let me know if you're interested.

PDS?

[It's not something Waverly is familiar with, or at least she doesn't think so at this point.]

Uh yeah, I wouldn't want to be called that either.

I'm Waverly, by the way.

Not really that long, no. How about you?

I've heard of it before from others here, but this city is my first time with something like this.

[personal profile] angelpants 2017-08-15 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
It's incredible and so exciting to be part of something like this.

Maybe they're just scared to try.

[Change can be a scary thing for people, even if it has a positive outcome.]

Yeah, that does make sense. And that's important too.

[ Ferdi's not quite mastered the art of video chatting yet and the camera is some blank white space but is luckily nothing embarrassing. ]

What exactly is PDS?

[ First things first. The other did look quite odd. ]

[ He's quiet for a moment as he processes that idea. There were a lot of things here that are difficult to comprehend here. ]

That's...

[ usually he is quite good at coming up with something to say in any situation. He decides to move on. ]

How did you come to be interested in art?
ferdi: (pic#10912270)

[personal profile] ferdi 2017-08-13 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
I would like to see some if you don't mind sharing.

A tour would be nice as well. [ He assumes like many other things, art might have also evolved since his time period. ]

[personal profile] ferdi 2017-08-14 06:58 am (UTC)(link)
in person would be better.

[ He is still uncomfortable with technology. ]

[personal profile] ferdi 2017-08-15 11:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, that would all be fine.

[ ooc: i'm up for scening it out! ]

[ It's those eyes that get her. The milky gloss feels ghastly, but the the earnestness that she sees in them settles her. ]

You don't ... look very well. [ Her voice is soft, empathetic, a little scared. The fact that she just says something like that though? Well, Felicity's never quite been good at talking, even if she talks a lot. ] I mean- is PDS something they can treat here?

[ He looks so ... sad, she thinks, which just makes the whole thing even stranger. Or maybe people just look sad when their eyes are that way, and there's barely any color in their cheeks. ]

You're-

Partially deceased?

[ Give her a second. Zombies aren't real in her world, not that she's even realized that's essentially what he is. ]

[ Mmmmm strike that. She's going to need more than a second, and since they're on video, the sheer amount of stunned Felicity looks isn't easy to hide. Especially since she's terrible at hiding things like that.

She snaps out of it at some point though, not many seconds later. ]


Yes- I mean, I've heard of zombies- and the undead from books and comics and TV. Do you- Can I ... [ The question just sort of comes out: ] But in real life, how does that even work?

[ A beat. ]

You don't ... have to answer that if you don't want to.

[ She seems to be finally realizing how much she's intruding on his privacy. ]

So, I totally already have that art stuff down, but maybe we could hang out at the Museum anyway?

( Because she hasn't had anyone to talk about art with in a while. )

Or we could go to the supply stores one day? I definitely need to pick up some new paints. And pencils. And actually everything, really. I didn't pack. ( Nobody did. She knows this. But her smile is amused anyway. Hopefully she's not too forward, she'd just really like to make friends. )

I am!

( Listen, they are now officially best friends. There's no other way around it. ) I actually go to art school. Or I did. ( Before the Shadowhunters. Actually, that's something to consider. Maybe there's a place here. ) But that's so cool. I never really hang out with other artists.

( Belatedly she realises she should have asked what PDS means, but Kieren's smiling and it suits him. She'd much rather focus on that. ) I'm a pencil and paper kind of girl. Call me traditional, but it's much easier carrying around a sketchbook than it is hauling slabs of concrete on your back? I did that for a project once. Never again. ( Beaming. ) But what about you?
