roulette

Timer doesn't have the square footage to gamble with. If he loses any he's going to have to move into a closet. But the other week he found an arcade/casino place with play money. Go in, get a few hundred tokens, play poker or pinball or pinochle, provide human scenery and help the fellow who organizes the place feel like he does something useful with his death.

Nathan is dealing blackjack, because why not, he likes to feel useful with his death too, and it wouldn't be very fair for him to play it. His table's short a player right now.

Not for long. Flush prefers poker, but there wasn't much going on there, and his luck said this table looked good. So blackjack it is.

He takes a seat. "Deal me two hands, I have a good feeling about this."

"Here, yes. The tokens isn't my usual style, but it looked like a good place, so what the hell. I'm Flush, you?"

"Don't know. I'll get back to you the first time it happens." He glances down at his cards: a 16 and a soft 17, but luck says go for it. "Oh, and hit on both."

"See? No bad runs." He checks luck again. It says... hit the 19. OK, time to showboat. "Oh, and hit my 19."
unconqueredsun: (not so lucky)

"Early 2000s. Were you clued-in to the weird stuff?"

"Well, I was. What, should I stop showing off?"

"I don't cheat people who can't afford to lose. Or my friends." He pauses before he shoots his mouth off. "If you'd rather, I won't play more hands. I can make money at the poker tables later the hard way."
unconqueredsun: (low places)

"Eh, showing off is fun. I do this and that. Gamble, walk through the library looking for odd and ends, stay a long step away from the torturers... It's dull, but it beats ceasing to exist. You do something besides dealing blackjack?"

"Oh, yeah. I'm a very lucky guesser. I only get a 'good idea'/'bad idea' feeling, and it's hard to convince my luck that other people are important, but it keeps me in good health and wealth, so I like it. You have one of your own?"
unconqueredsun: (didn't see that coming)

"Huh. Oddly similar, really," He cocks his head, "OK, that will bug me: When is the best time to light yourself on fire?"

"Hah. That's good. Much more fun than 'Don't do that.' Not that I don't have a couple odd stories, myself. One time it was a bad idea to leave the house for three full days, and it took me a week more to figure out that there had been a rabid raccoon sleeping under my doormat. Of course, down here I'd just assume Chainsaw was in the neighborhood."
