You hate kings and you think kings are really stupid. They are petty, bossy tyrants and are really full of themselves and are basically awful in every way.

They're not trying to kill each other yet, are they?

It was definitely worth considering, and Julian Avery kept repeating the thought to himself as he moseyed around in search of his fellow man. He considered it a testament to his own steely resolve that he was still capable of moseying rather than frantic scurrying. Nobody could blame him if he started scurrying.

Instead, Julian was content to swish his sword around idly, scoring a few minor victories against the underbrush. There was something that looked vaguely like a church straight ahead of him, which looked like as good a place as any to meet people and have a pleasant chat. Or if the place was empty, a vast range of possibilities presented themselves, from quietly contemplating the ethics of killing in self-defense to swinging his sword around wildly and pretending to be a goddamn fucking samurai. Something edifying.

It was not to be, however, since there were already a pair of guys standing outside the church and chatting about something. Julian thought he could recognize the one from his current distance, that looked like it might be Teo... Teo Weinstock. Teo Weinstock, who was holding something big and wooden, like- yeah, he was holding a crossbow, and he was pointing it at- oh, at the other guy. Teo was aiming a crossbow at the other guy.

They're already trying to kill each other, aren't they?

Julian crept a little closer and heard some kind of demand to "drop that weapon", which meant approaching the situation while holding a badass sword was probably out of the question. Julian found a tree to stash the thing behind inconspicuously, planted it into the ground blade-first, and did his best to ruffle some plants in a way that partially concealed it. Eh, fuck it. If someone's gonna steal it, they're gonna steal it. Defusing this hostage situation was a little higher priority right now than meticulously protecting his badass sword.

Julian picked up a smallish stone, made his way closer to Teo and the other fella- Nick Something?- and rolled the stone at Teo lightly. Julian spoke clearly and in his least threatening tone, holding his hands above his head.

"Teo, I'm officially surrendering my weapon to you. And don't think this came easy, man. Me and that rock were tight." A goofy sort of grin made its way across Julian's face, almost certainly a staggeringly inappropriate response to the situation. "Hey, if there's some kinda problem here, you guys wanna try and talk it over first?"

He's already gonna try to kill me, isn't he?

Charlie DuClare is dead. And nothing was easy anymore except to smile.
Julian Avery is dead. Courage was the man with a gun in his hand.
JJ Sturn is dead. Fuck it, all good things gotta come to an end.
