faint smile

Twilight zone

From theatrical_muse: Have you ever experienced something you couldn't explain?

Oh, lots of times, but you mean something mysterious, don't you?

Well, there was that room in the basement on Xenon that kept old Dorian going for a few centuries till Avon shot the monster in it with the gun I gave him. Often wondered what his original name was; I've read more than you'd might think, you know. That whole place gave me the creeps and I often wondered if it was just because it was under a mountain (used to lie awake worrying about all that weight above us) or whether all those people Dorian fed to it left something behind.

I'd rather not think about that.

I suppose there's also the teleport going wrong on me all the time. Only ever happened on the way to somewhere dangerous and Cally once said it was because I wasn't willing to go and something in me affected it, 'cause it only works on living matter you know and maybe it used people's energy or something. I suppose it makes sense as I was the only one in the crew she ever got anything from and I do get hunches about danger, you know, but it's a pity that if I have a special skill, it's not a blind bit of use.
