The popcorn forgotten in his sudden passion for a tattoo, Marcus opened a cupboard to get out some flasks and started filling them up with liquor. "Sounds great," he replied. "We can walk with booze and smokes. Maybe some weed? We going someplace sketchy where we can get away with that? Oh, man, I totally know what I want, too. It's gonna be a big, dumb cliché, but I'm a big dumb cliché, so whatever."

"I wouldn't say it's sketchy, you don't want to get a tattoo at a sketchy place, but the guy's cool," she said. "He's done all of my tattoos and he's pretty chill, he's not going to freak about a little weed and booze." She walked back into the living room and was confronted by ... a puppy, happily wagging it's tail at her. A three-legged puppy, which was heart-breakingly adorable.

"Oh my God, when did this happen?" She squatted down to immediately begin scratching the puppy behind the ears and make cooing sounds at it.

Hearing the sounds of Ruby and cute cooing while he finished filling up the flasks, Marcus replied, "'Bout a month ago. Isn't she cute?" Grabbing up his loot and ensuring that his cigarettes were in his pocket, he left the kitchen to see Rue scratching Ruby behind the ears and Ruby receiving the affection enthusiastically. He couldn't help but grin, despite how heavy and awful he felt all the time now. "Her name's Ruby. And I got her service dog papers, so I can take her anywhere I want. When people hassle me about it, I just show 'em how I lost my hand in the line of duty and they back off. 'In the line of duty' is a powerful phrase." He delivered that last bit like a sage dispensing profound wisdom as he got Ruby's little service-dog vest off the back of the couch and knelt down to put it on her.

"Oh, that's awesome," she said, in reference to Ruby being a service dog. When he mentioned losing his hand in the line of duty, she finally looked over at it ... or where it had been. "About that... how are you doing?"

He couldn't help but look at it. He still always did, whenever it was mentioned. It hadn't yet healed up enough to be able to take a prosthetic, so he'd just been doing life with that weird, ugly, scarred, but also badass stump sticking out for everyone to see. "It definitely takes some getting used to," he replied, using it to hold a strap of the vest under Ruby's chest and then grabbing it from the other side, looping it into its catch with a bit of stumbling that showed he'd figured out his method but still wasn't quite fantastic at it. "But it turns out you can do most things with one hand. It's just more awkward."

"I ... I would imagine so," she said. "Are they considering a prosthetic?" Maybe he didn't want to discuss it, but maybe it would be nice for someone not to treat it like a scary, taboo subject. Maybe talking about it would actually help, as much as it could, anyway.

Yeah, she was right. Plenty of people were avoiding it like the plague. Talking was pretty good, especially several shots in the way he was. "Yeah, we'll do that at some point," he replied, finally finishing up with getting Ruby's vest on. "It just needs to heal a lot more before it'll take a prosthetic, I guess." And, with that, he stood up holding Ruby's leash and patted down his pockets to ensure that he had all the supplies. "Well, booze, weed, and dog ... ready for tattoos?"

"I'm always ready for tattoos," she said, grinning. "Especially after ... everything. Fresh start time, right?"

He nodded, then suddenly became really interested in the whole process of unlocking and opening the door. "Yeah. Definitely time for that." He opened the door for Rue so they could head out.

Out in the hall, she led the way toward the lift, then leaned against the wall of it once they were safely inside.

"The puppy doesn't mind the lift, does she?" She asked curiously. Kona didn't care for it, and she had to admit that it made her a little nervous in her animagus form.

He scooped Ruby up and held onto her. "She isn't a big fan, but she seems OK if I hold her? I think she doesn't hate 'em as bad as I do, honestly. Ugh." Ruby licked at his face and he made stupid, silly-sounding baby talk at her that was basically incomprehensible.

Once they were outside and Ruby was back on the ground, Marcus immediately lit up a cigarette and offered the pack to Rue. "You pick this up or still just sticking to the bud?"

"I usually only smoke when I'm drinking," she said, but she took one because, well, there was definitely going to be drinking. She put the cigarette between her lips and handed him back the pack, waiting expectantly for a light.

There was drinking, smoking, and getting tattoos, resulting in waking up the next morning with a hangover as well as a burning sensation on her foot. She'd gotten a cute sea turtle, though she only vaguely remembered the experience. She'd gotten home somehow and the next day she texted Marcus to make sure he was doing okay and to give him some tips on tattoo care.
