*reads ask box title* what about water?

Cinder: When, water is near me, it becomes quite like Watts.

Watts: What?

Cinder: Steam.

Watts: I don’t understand.

Cinder: One could call it, hot air.

Watts: WHY YOU!!

  • Hazel: Salem, I'm just saying that if it could happen to one of our underlings, and we ourselves do not control the Grimm, then who's to say we are not at risk? It's not like the Grimm can differentiate between us and other humans.
  • Salem: I assure you, you have nothing to-
  • Watts: Actually, I DID find it pretty strange that you don't offer any insurance to any of us.
  • Tyrian: Yeah, and who's running our 401k, anyways? I don't think I've seen a single computer in this giant crystal castle.
  • Watts: I don't think I've seen a single electronic in here. It seems to be lit entirely by mysterious crystals and fire light. How are you supposed to run an operation this complex without any computers?
  • Hazel: It seems impractical at best.

I was just about to close my laptop after getting out the words for NaNoWriMo…when this popped in my head and I had no choice but to get it out.

The following is a Barba fic - one that probably has more to come.

Evening,

Here is the case file you requested with the information relevant to Corsi v. Bezon highlighted.

I’ve also taken the liberty of attaching another case you might find interesting. While the charges are not related, if you read the highlighted text, I think you’ll see the similarities between defendants.

Related, I’ve also ordered this to assist you in court tomorrow. I believe it will provide the necessary distraction needed.

E. Watts –

I don’t want such efforts as those in your email to go unnoticed, so I prepared to forward this email along to the attorney handling Corsi v. Bezon.

However, I was curious as to how exactly you expect ADA Bartle to use a whoopee cushion in his cross. On the off chance that you pasted the wrong link, much like you typed in the wrong email address, I’ve decided to hold off on forwarding this message, and instead allow you to handle it yourself.

Sincerely,

Rafael Barba

Mr. Barba,

I appreciate your thorough reading of an email that was not intended for you, and your thoughtful decision to withhold sending it on. It should be noted that the address was a mistake, but everything within was exactly as intended.

While the auto populate feature our new email system uses is faulty, the content of my emails seldom are.

(Are you unfamiliar with the whoopee strategy? Clearly, you attended an inferior institution of learning. But I promise not to hold that against you, if you can forgive my uninvited presence in your inbox.)

Best,

E Watts

Watts,

I’m not sure what circles you travel in that would find Harvard to be inferior, but no, I regret to inform you that we were not taught the whoopee strategy.

I am prepared to forgive your uninvited presence, yet that may be difficult if you keep showing up.

Barba

Dear Rafael “Harvard” Barba,

As a Bulldog, I have been trained to believe that Harvard is, in fact, inferior. Having said that, I have a strong contrary streak and don’t always do as I’m told.

In all seriousness, I’d like to apologize if I’ve offended you in any way. Tone is hard to convey in an email message. ADA Bartle is accustomed to – and even enjoys – my odd brand of humor, and sometimes it’s difficult to shut off, particularly when I find myself alone in the office at this hour.

All the best,

Eve Watts

Eve,

Please let me know how the whoopee strategy works out for Bartle.

And no offense taken. After all, I can only expect so much from a Yalie. I’m packing up for the evening and given the late hour, I recommend you do the same.

Or should I recommend you stay? Given your contrary nature, I’m not sure what would be more prudent.

Best,

Barba

Rafael,

May I call you that? I’m going to assume I can, since you took to referring to me as Eve.

If you’re concerned about formality, have no fear. No one close to me calls me Eve, and something tells me Rafael is no less formal for you than Barba.

I’d like to say that I’ve been working on my contrary ways and that is why I’m answering your email from a crowded subway car, but the truth is, I was already on my way out when your email arrived.

Even so, your concern did not go unnoticed. 

Thank you.

Eve

Eve,

I’m curious as to what people call you if not Eve. Usually informal names are just a shortened version of our given one, yet, there is nowhere to go with yours, short of being called ‘E’.

Don’t feel like you have to answer this anytime soon. I feel guilty infiltrating into your after work hours.

Rafael,

Don’t feel badly at all! A distraction is always welcome on the ride home, particularly when I’m avoiding eye contact with the seedy-looking character across from me, or folding myself into an impossibly small corner as the man beside me manspreads his way into my chair.

Ah, the joys of public transport. Bless city life.

As to the issue of nicknames - have you never had a playground name as a child that stuck? Or a pet name you couldn’t escape? For your sake, I’m hoping no.

I do hope your response to my previous email doesn’t mean that you changed your mind about escaping the office. It’s now well beyond late and you should be home.

Eve,

I am home, and hoping to get some sleep before I have to start this all over in the morning, but your description of your subway ride home leaves me concerned.

Do me a small favor and email when you are home safe?

Rafael,

Don’t think I didn’t notice you sidestepped the pet name question. ;)

I imagine you’ve fallen asleep by now, but I’m emailing just to be safe. There was some sort of delay and regrettably I am just now arriving home.

I am writing this safely inside my apartment, door locked, chain slid over, deadbolt engaged, alarm system armed. Perfectly safe.

Sleep well.

Eve

Now that you’re home safe, I’ll do just that.
