His birthday may have passed, but Jim’s no less in need of a good outing to lift his spirits. At least, in Felix’s judgment. Besides, the plans were laid: properly forewarned, Verity’s supplied a generous picnic; Felix himself has scouted their destination and procured a couple of sleds that might survive the day.

He’s also been careful to forewarn Jim, so that his text won’t come as a surprise.

We’re clear to go. Do you need any help with that armor?

Jim hasn't been in the Nexus since his birthday. In fact, they haven't really spoken much since then. But Felix had gotten pictures of the planet they'd been observing, so at least the conjurer knows Jim wasn't just sulking in his room since then. He'd been working. The other activity Jim Kirk is always doing.

I'm good. Is the area clear where these coordinates lead?

Once he gets the all-clear, there's a barely audibly Blip! before Jim is putting his phone away so he can pull the glove he's got hanging out of his mouth back on.

"Goddamn Reynard made the Nexus cold. I swear it's nicer here than it is in the Forum." Once they'd found a set of leather and fur armor that fit properly (and a place in the Nexus to stash it) Jim had been looking forward to getting to try it all on for real. He's still a bit pale to pass as an adventurer. Too fair skinned and lacking in scars. But he's in the armor Felix picked out for him, with a cloak draped around his shoulders to help keep out the wind.

"Yo."

He does but then again, if he is a noble's son trying on his first set of armor, then Felix is going to get one hell of a reputation for making connections.

The captain looks leagues better that he did a week or so ago. As if it never happened. And Felix can bet he's going to act like it never happened, too. You know, like he usually does with his problems.

"Reynard's alright, but he gets weird when Winter hits. Personally, I'm gonna wait him out until spring before I hang with him again. He's too intense right now." Jim shakes his head and pulls the cloak back off his head to get a better look around the area.

"Christ, this place is something else. You're spoiled for views here Felix."

"We're gonna go climbing? Fucking sweet!" Jim loves rock climbing almost as much as he loves jumping off of things. "You really know how to impress a lady Felix." not that Jim is average or a lady, but details.

"Want me to carry one of those thing?" He points to the gear and food packs and sleds over by Felix. "Never let it be said Jim Kirk can't hold his own in the great outdoors."

Really. What could possibly go wrong way out in the middle of nowhere on a mountainside? It's hardly busy out here, right? Seems like a fun date Felix has planned.

"Paths are for followers, Felix." Jim is wearing his best smile as he looks up the mountain. "On the other hand, climbing up snow and ice in new digs is just asking for trouble. Hiking it is!" If he falls and makes an ass out of himself in front of Felix Jim will never live it down.

To himself, of course.

"Am I being led to believe this is going to end up in us going down the mountainside very fast?" Jim shoulders his pack with a grin that is almost indecently excited. "Fuck I think I'm in love." He gives the other a wink and starts up the path.

"Tell me there's a mountain that actually thaws in the summer we can climb and you won't be able to stop me from coming." Jim laughs easily before he starts making his way up the path. He's definitely glad he decided on the cloak and linen pants to wear under his armor.

With the wind howling and dragging snow down the mountainside, it's cold enough without him showing skin. The blowing snow makes the path difficult to distinguish from the rest of the snow. Even with his clothing Jim finds himself shivering after a few moments. Hopefully the hike will warm him up as they go.

"Outdoor activities are some of my favorites. And I love to climb." Not that there was ever much in Iowa to climb, but there's mountains aplenty here. And there's that word again, as casual as ever.

But just because Jim has realized something for himself doesn't mean he's ready to admit it to Felix. unfortunately for Jim, he wears his emotions on his sleeve more than even he realizes.

"Hell yes. You are seriously the best." Jim pumps his fist in a clearly excited gesture of anticipation for future promises of rock climbing.

"In my experience, caves and ruins are infinitely more likely to hold Jim-Eating-Monsters than the rest of the great outdoors." Jim shakes his head. "I'd still go. Exploration is exploration. But look at these views!"

The captain has stopped and turned around slowly, taking in the beauty that is Tamriel. He breathes deep of the mountain air, eyes and smile wide as he takes it all in.

"I'd rather see this than a cave wall any day."

smartass_captain: (Yeah?)
From: [personal profile] smartass_captain
"Treasure huh." Jim quirks an eyebrow. "What kinds of treasure?" It makes sense, what with said ruins Felix was mentioning. But monetary gain really isn't Jim's motivation. Seeing things others haven't. Doing things others wont. That's what he lives for. And he's the only person in his entire universe that's seen what he's seeing right now.

It's a special sight, to be sure.

"When the snow stops blowing long enough to see, yeah." He chuckles. "It's pretty magnificent."

"Fair point. I guess learning magic would require a pretty specific exploratory set of skills." Jim nods and shifts to the side so Felix can lead the way.

"You are so speaking my language." The hike is steep and by the time they've reached wherever it is they're going, Jim's shifting his pack to move his armor around. Felix wasn't kidding about how this stuff shifts the more he's moving. Not to mention the cold has this stuff stiff as a board.

Possibly also because its new. He's not complaining though. If Felix can do this, so can Jim! Just...not as seemingly effortless as the conjurer.

From: [personal profile] smartass_captain
Really, Jim makes for a rather impressive noble. He hasn't complained once! Hasn't demanded a peasant village be burned to the ground, carries his own pack, and hasn't even chastised his escorting knight for moving too fast. If only all Skyrim's elite would be so charming.

"I think the climb back up is going to be sore but worth the effort." Jim laughs easily, happy to remove the pack he'd been carrying. Jim's instincts are sharp, but his attention is on Felix and the mountainside, rather than the slopes further up. It's just a rabbit, a ram, any number of mountain creatures, probably anyway. Who needs to worry about that?

"Alright, let's get these set up. I can't wait to try this out. You go first and I'll follow?" Normally Jim would be clamoring to go first, but he's still trying not to make a fool of himself in front of Felix, so having the conjurer go first so he wont see if Jim plants himself into the snow seems like the vain sensible thing to do.

smartass_captain: (Ha!)
From: [personal profile] smartass_captain
Man if any of those totally-just-rabbits are in hearing range they're going to gag at how obvious the flirting is between these two. No wonder they're here all on their lonesome.

"Ahahaha!" Jim for all you're worried about Felix laughing at you, that is kinda rude. Jim hurries over to pull Felix out, chuckling against the other's shoulder all the while. "I've got you."

Careful there Jim, the point is to go sledding, not get all touchy feely yet. They haven't even taken their romp in the snow!

"Here." Jim squats down and helps hold the sled steady while Felix gets himself situated. "Are you on?" He doesn't let go until Felix gives the affirmative, and then Jim's standing back up and dusting the snow from his hands.

"Go on, I'm gonna grab my sled. I'll be right behind you."

Famous last words, Kirk.

"Have to hike back up anyway to get our stuff, right?" Jim's voice fades from Felix ears as he rockets his way down the slope.

The captain leans over a bit to watch Felix go, chuckling at the sight the conjurer makes. He goes ahead and grabs his sled, setting it down where the Imperial had set his. Before he can even get on the sled someone has their arm around his neck, squeezing hard enough to cut off oxygen. Jim thrashes and kicks before a well placed punch renders him unconscious.

Jim's sled goes down the slope all by it's lonesome, a tiny drop of blood on it's wooden frame all the clue Felix will get until he hikes back up the mountainside.

Something is dripping. It's damp. There are voices Jim doesn't understand arguing about something. Is this a cave system? He's been tied up--how original-- and left laying face down on the rocky ground.

He doesn't move just yet. Straining to listen for any clues that might help him figure out how many of these people there are. No one's keeping watch on him, which is one small favor.

One thing at a time, Jim. He needs to free himself quietly before anything else can be done. God he hopes Felix is okay.
