Anael

Robin loved museums. All the history, all the memories. Paintings especially. All the painters he'd known over the years, all the subjects, all the models. Sometimes it was a strange sense of melancholy, sitting in a room full of images from the past, from his past, ad feeling consumed by it for just a few moments.

A little masochistic even, sometimes.

He sat on a bench in the National Gallery, looking at a painting of Achilles and Patroclus. It had been so long since he'd seen them. Those souls, the pair of them, sometimes brothers sometimes not, who had appeared over and over again throughout the ages. Achilles and Patroclus were just one of the incarnations. And it had been decades since Robin had watched a version of them die again.

Still, these were some of his favorites. Even if the Trojan War had been a hell of a time.

His gaze lingered on Achilles. The beautiful body, the blonde hair. Something tugged inside him.

That something tugged at Anael, just the same. He was, very predictably, standing in front of a painting of Aphrodite when he felt the surge of love, and he had to look over. Look over, and frown in confusion. But there was no doubt, it was the puck the love was coming from. He abandoned Aphrodite then and there, and walked over to the puck.

When he stopped beside him, he looked at the painting for a few seconds. Achilles and Patroclus, favourites of lesser gods than his own. Had the puck known them? Likely. But it was still surprising, and he turned to focus on him.

"I've never known one of your kind to feel much love," he stated quietly, and curiously, the tone befitting a museum, too low for any of the mortals to overhear.

"No one's close enough," Anael replied, pragmatically, with a small shrug.

Anael was silent for a second, mock-contemplative. "It seems as if it might get over it." He shrugged again, slightly. "If you cared that much about not offending it, I might recommend not feeling such love in the first place. But I couldn't ever bring myself to do that."

"Anael," he answered, very honestly. It might not be the name he was most known by, the name most associated with being an archangel, but it was still true. "And I'm never wrong about love."

"I feel yours, when it comes to them," Anael replied, with a tilt of his head towards the portrait beside them. Few of his brethren had chosen an earthly life, but he still frowned in curiosity at the knowledge. "Stalking you. Why?"
whispersoflove: (a dare in my eyes)

"I could never blame anyone for loving another," Anael replied, amused by what he assumed was an attempt to provoke him. "Even less so a puck capable of actual love."

But a family of mortals were walking closer, clearly intent on seeing the portrait of the Greek heroes.

Anael took the time to look at it, then smiled up at the puck (he was shorter than him, in this body). "It is lovely." The word was very much chosen on purpose.
whispersoflove: (a dare in my eyes)

[personal profile] whispersoflove 2014-09-07 10:20 pm (UTC)(link)
"'Magnificent' is a tall order," Anael confirmed, still smiling slightly, and clearly playful. "But I can tell lovely, at least."

This would hardly scandalise.

"But let us move along," he suggested as the humans drew closer still.

[personal profile] whispersoflove 2014-09-07 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
"Away from the humans we might yet scandalise with our conversation, Master Puck," Anael replied with a smile, resorting to the form of address of centuries past as he took the puck's arm to move on to a painting a few frames down. It was one of Heracles, a hero for which Anael had never found much kinship.
whispersoflove: (i have known many times)

"I might disapprove of the puckish," Anael replied, and once again, clearly focused his attention on the puck, rather on the painting, "but anything that is born from love, I have no issue with. What name do you go by?"
whispersoflove: (a dare in my eyes)

[personal profile] whispersoflove 2014-09-07 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Anael smiled, then chuckled, absolutely unwilling to hold that in, given the puck's reaction. "Let me doubt that, Robin." Pucks would hardly ever be at the service of his Lord, even if they were capable of love. Even Anael knew better than to think the one equated the other, and being at the service of an angel would certainly mean being at the service of God.

Anael paused, thoughtful for a second. "A lot of my brethren do think that sex is funny." Whether he was playing or not was entirely left to the puck's imagination.

Anael, for his part, was certain of what he had felt off of Robin. He was hoping that the 'you think' had to do with the 'only'. He did not exactly think so, but he would be glad to be officially wrong, all the same.

"I don't think so," Anael replied with a quick smile. "I've certainly never managed. Perhaps that is reason enough to feel safe having a drink with you."

Now he was definitely playing.
