There are days when the fight seems neverending and the only hope exists in Robin's eyes that see a better future for Nottingham. Now though there are rumors of Richard returning and he wants to believe that that the king will help. But he knows and he saw in Doc's eyes that they're outlaws, happy endings aren't usually given to them.

That's why he's out at the punching bag with his shirt off and hitting all the things that he can't change.

In the time since arriving at the End of the Universe, Maria has settled her suspicions by singling out a handful of comforts.

The security office is decently staffed and managed as well as a place like this could be.

The libraries are extremely well stocked.

Her favorite beer is always on tap.

And there are a number of ranges, gyms, rings, and other facilities with enough equipment to keep her otherwise busy mind occupied for a very long time.

The half-naked man helps, too.

"You want a spotter?"

Her answering smile is more subtle, but unmistakably there.

"What's on your mind?"

She unzips her jacket, leaving it on a piece of equipment not currently in use. The tanktop underneath shows strong arms.

She steadies the bag, eyebrow arched.

"You're throwing some pretty heavy punches."

"Richard?"

The bag absorbs the blow, barely moving. Like in all things, Hill's presence is strong.

It takes a moment for the name to fully dawn on her.

"King Richard?"

She purses her lips.

"I'd like to think everything will work out."

As far as the stories go, they will.

Stories aren't exactly mission reports, though. And even mission reports fudge details now and then.

"He'll be at the head of a returning army, right?"

"Are his men loyal?"

She keeps her eyes on him.

Steady, steady...

"Like you and the rest of Robin's men?"

From: [personal profile] holds_her_own
"Hey."

It's as gentle as she can muster, a counterpoint to her action-ready stance.

She lays a hand on his shoulder and slips closer.

"What does Hood have to say about the rumors?"

It's not the first time she's held someone through something.

Given her position, it won't be the last time either.

"He's pretty smart, that leader of yours."

She quirks a smile.

"So trust him."

At least they're on the same page.

"Whatever happens, you'll know you fought with a good man for a good cause. Even if they don't throw you a parade."

"You're a pretty good man, too."

She's fought with the best, but she never expected to meet anyone from legend.

It's humbling.

"A war hero once said: 'Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.'"

holds_her_own: (On the comms)
From: [personal profile] holds_her_own
"Exactly."

She nods once.

"You and I have that in common, even if we fight for different people."

She gives his shoulder a squeeze and lets her hand slip away.

She doesn't mind.

A lot of what happens to her is classified.

"Good."

It's a standard answer, but he drags a little more out of her without needing to press.

"No kings returning from war, but things are about to get a lot more interesting."

From: [personal profile] holds_her_own
She tips her head from shoulder to shoulder.

"I'll find out soon enough."

Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die springs to mind.

"My boss just had a ... pretty big week."

The grim set of her jaw gives her away.

"Yes."

There's always collateral damage. Thinking about it like that sometimes helps.

Sometimes.

"You've met gods and monsters here. We have our own variety."

Beat.

"They tend to make a mess."
