the darkest timeline: chilton hates you

So he has come to a completely inexplicable bar, where the first drink is free and bizarre manifestations of conscience ask him pointed questions about who Hannibal Lecter is sleeping with.

Why doesn't his fractured psyche wish to know anything about who he is sleeping with? (Don't answer that.) For the time being, he has elected to keep drinking until alternatives beyond 'return to prison' present themselves.

Chilton is seated at a table that provides a good view of the bar, but has thus far done only the barest minimum by way of exploring the place. He can't even bring himself to abandon the jumpsuit. He almost likes it, in a masochistic sort of way: He's been indelibly branded. A burnt-orange letter on his breast.

His compliments to Dr. Lecter, Miriam Lass, and the BAU.

Beverly blinks at him.

"What? Of course you're not the Ripper. I know who killed me."

A beat. Her eyes narrow.

"Are they charging you?"

Did she die and then Jack Crawford lost his goddamn mind?

Beverly's edges fuzz out and then focus again, and the ambient temperature drops slightly, although in the large room it's not too obvious.

"You know that and he's not in custody?"
schrodingerskatz: (Threshold of revelation)

Her eyes widen.

"Which agents?"
schrodingerskatz: (Beverly Katz)

"I have -- I had more colleagues than Jimmy and Z at the Bureau."

She draws her hands over her face, trying to focus. Thinking about Price and Zeller always makes it hard.

"But they're alive? They're alive."
schrodingerskatz: (Up close and personal with bad)

[personal profile] schrodingerskatz 2014-07-21 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
She groans.

"Goddammit, guys-- Don't you even have an alibi for the other murders?"
schrodingerskatz: (Threshold of revelation)

"Lass?"

SERIOUSLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE SHE DIED.

With a flicker, she's sitting across from him, her head in her hands, her expression incredulous.

"Lass thinks you were the one holding her?"

"How," she says, helpless. "What a clusterfuck, Jesus."

"But you're not dead?" she asks, looking up at him. "Like the other people here, I mean, not like me."
schrodingerskatz: (Beverly Katz)

Beverly sighs. (A cold draft blows across the table.)

"Better than the alternative, believe me."
schrodingerskatz: (Neutral conversation)

[personal profile] schrodingerskatz 2014-07-22 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
She shrugs.

"I think that's the least condescending thing you've ever said to me, Doctor."
schrodingerskatz: (Crinkleface)

[personal profile] schrodingerskatz 2014-07-22 06:52 am (UTC)(link)
"Aren't they just," she says with a snort.
schrodingerskatz: (Quiet confidence)

[personal profile] schrodingerskatz 2014-07-22 07:10 am (UTC)(link)
Her eyebrows arch.

"Do tell."
