The smokey, warm home of the wood miners guild. This is a thriving secondary industry, with the center of town being devoted to an elevator that descends into a large cavern in which a strange form of fungus grows that possesses many of the same traits of wood. The majority of the town works at some job related to the Rhook fungus, either in the mining or the processing of it. They build and sell beautiful Rhook furniture, carts, and other wood-based paraphernalia here. A number of auctions are held here, with the items often bearing a smokey scent or bit of ash - explained as having been recovered from the ashes of a recent fire.

All visitors must report to their customs entry, an easy diversion given that it is the only entry into the town. Provision of an adequate gift will result in their tin visa being stamped with a series of lines that looks like the rings of a tree. The police here are marginally more relaxed about proof of identification, but they are sharply on the lookout for arson and any property-related crimes. There is a smokey scent hanging in the air and a whole section of the city is little more than a warm, charred cinder. Questions about this earn the explanation of a dark mindset overcoming half the residents of that area only two months back and it worsened quickly into strife. One night, the area went up in flames and many of the residents perished with their homes and nearly the whole town was lost. Since then, they have been careful about fires and changes in personality both, with many residents currently residing in jail until their foul tempers dissipate.

[May's wandering has taken her through the streets around here has led to her picking up a few odds and ends- things picked up mainly in mind for Kaine and Peter, and even something she thinks Cassie might like. They''re all stowed away in her own trusty backpack, of course, so when she sees Kaine she has no problem starting off in his direction.]

Hey, Kaine!

[Have your 'niece' shouting and waving hi as she walks towards you.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Can I talk to you?)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-15 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Turns when he hears May's voice. He didn't know why, but he hadn't expected to run into her. Still, it was nice to see her. It was nice to have actual family that didn't try to kill you.

...Not that he deserved family.

Hey. Stocking up on wooden furniture?
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] All smiles)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-15 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
[Her dad stressed the importance of family helping each other and being there for each other over the years (something he only recently came to regret, not that May's entirely aware of that fact), and it's one of the lessons that have stuck hard to her, right up there with the family motto about responsibility.

Kaine would have to try to kill her first to make her drop it, and even then that wouldn't be a guaranteed success. She inherited the stubbornness from not only her dad, but her mom too.]

I think my suite has enough. I'm just looking around.

[It's not a lie, even if she's leaving out the fact she's got a few presents nestled in her bag.]

What are those for?
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Turn that up)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-15 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Reaches into his bag and pulls one of the swords out.]

The gym I've been setting up. [Holds the sword properly, even though he has no intention of taking a swing with it.]
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Didn't expect this)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-15 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[With swords?]

Do you know how to use a sword?

[The question is earnest, because her very first run-in with Kaine he gave her a chewing out for even thinking of using something as a weapon. So the idea of Kaine with a sword is a strange one, to say the least.]
unobtainableredemption: hand (Sting of Kaine)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-15 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Seriously? Well, that does inspire him to take a swing with it. He takes a few steps back as to keep May out of range, and tries to visualize someone trying to kill him. It was too hard the other way, just thinking about the techniques he had picked up over the years. He moves quickly, his strikes on his imaginary opponent precise... and lethal.

Luckily for him, May didn't know what he was thinking.
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] So about that)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-15 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay, this, she wasn't expecting. She can tell she's out of range and safe, thanks to her spider-sense, but because he pointed out his connection to her dad, every so often the moments where that likeness really shines through makes this surprise demonstration extra weird.]

Okay, I guess you really do know how.

Does this mean you're planning on giving lessons?

[She'll hold off on telling him what the other him said for now.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (I tried to be a hero. I failed)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-16 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
[Of course he knows how! He wouldn't just buy four swords for the hell of it.]

I... [He is so not teacher material.] I haven't exactly been classically trained.

Besides, you know me. A me. Would you be trained by me?
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] All smiles)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-20 05:10 am (UTC)(link)
[How is she supposed to know that?

And as much as it can be a drain on her spare time, prevent her from sleeping in, or even spending time with her friends, May has never been one to turn down the opportunity to practice and improve her skills. Her sense of responsibility means she has to make the most of her powers, and that isn't limited to just putting on a costume.]

If that's supposed to be an offer, yes.

[She should probably not tell him what the Kaine of her world said when she tried to hit him with a makeshift weapon.]

unobtainableredemption: Kaine (This cannot be happening to me.)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-21 06:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[Uggh that was the opposite of an offer. Seriously, do these kids just not listen when people talk?]

I guess you could watch me and we could go from there.
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Didn't expect this)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-30 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hey, there was a qualifier! 'If'!]

I learn fast, I promise.

[She wasn't actually expecting him to offer.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Headache)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-30 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's 99% sure this is one of his dumber ideas.]

daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Grinning)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-31 12:13 am (UTC)(link)
[His reaction is actually comforting, if only because it reminds her that this really is still Kaine she's dealing with.]

I won't let you down. Really.

[He might think that now but May will actually be a good student.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Not her)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-31 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
[He has no doubt in her abilities, only his.]

Why would you want to know how to use a sword, anyway?
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Awkward much?)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2013-12-31 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
If I know how to use one, I figure it means I'll be able to defend myself better again people who use a sword.

[He probably wouldn't take hearing that she took a Scrier sword through her stomach very well so she'll just... leave that bit out. She doesn't want to upset him with something like that.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Turn that up)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-31 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Don't you have... you know... for that?
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Looking over)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2014-01-02 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
It doesn't mean it's foolproof.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Thought I should do this face-to-face)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-02 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Trust me when I say that that is your ultimate edge in a fight. [Which is why he kind of missed it. And then he remembers the flashes he used to get of the future, and the feeling passed.]
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Neutral)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2014-01-10 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
I know, I know, and saying that just makes you sound like my dad.

[...Excuse her while she realizes what she just said and to who.]

-I didn't mean for that to sound like that.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (In the name of the father and the son...)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-12 05:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kaine freezes at that remark. He's nothing like Peter, and he knows it.]

Don't say that again.
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Somber)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2014-01-17 05:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I won't.

[She is definitely aware she crossed a line there, even if it was by mistake. If she said that to the Kaine she knew back home, she probably would've gotten the same reaction- except he and her dad had never told her, and probably never intended to. Which makes it that much worse, really.]

I'm sorry, I really didn't mean it like that.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Not that)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-18 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I only say that because since I lost mine I can tell you skill only gets you so far.

[Kaine's always been a fan of "ignore it and it didn't happen," so why should now be any different?]
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] Unsure)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2014-01-21 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
[She can follow that line of thought; if anything, it seems to be a Parker family specialty.]

I know, but I've seen enough people who only have skill to know that it can still take you pretty far.

[She might have the strength, agility, and stamina of a spider, but American Dream's a serious athlete and strong contender even against superpowered bad guys.]

I'm willing to take every advantage I can make for myself.

[Without breaking her moral code, of course.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (What? I can't--)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-22 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah but when you're in a room full of assassins trying to kill you at once, you're operating primarily on luck at that point. You're not going to get a warning.

[He might be talking from experience here...]

You're already smarter than your father.
daughteroftheoriginal: ([May] I've got things to do)

[personal profile] daughteroftheoriginal 2014-01-22 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
[She's not going to try and argue that comment, but she's starting to get really really annoyed, her gaffe earlier nonwithstanding. He might be Kaine, but he isn't the Kaine who's seen what's she's able to handle, has handled.]

I know. Just because I'm younger than you, doesn't mean you need to tell me! I know it can boil down to luck, but practice and skill still make a difference! Enough to be important! I don't want to rely on just luck! I'm just lucky that Normie and the symbiote were nearby when that Scrier stabbed me through the chest!

[...Oh no did she just say that. The brief bubble of anger and annoyance is quickly burst, leaving her looking shocked that she just told him that.]
