Shots with Scientists

Post by Herbert on Wed Jan 07, 2015 8:24 pm

Herbert was... drunkish. That's how he'd describe the slight queasy feeling currently in his stomach. He was just about three-fourths of the way done with his screwdriver and despite what Herbert claimed, he couldn't handle his alcohol too well.  The scientist had his head in his hand, elbow propped up on the table. Herbert looked at his glass and took another drink before setting it down. His white shirt had large bloodstains on it that were concealed for the most part by his jacket but still visible on the collar. Herbert was hoping that no one would see that and if they did, he hoped they wouldn't ask. There was also a rather a few bruises of varying sizes on his hands and some scratches, both fresh and healed, on his visible skin. Nothing too terribly noticeable either. Herbert downed the rest of his screwdriver and ordered another one, sliding over the empty glass. The scientist ran his hand through his hair and took the new drink with a thankful nod.

Herbert took a sip and put the glass down. He opened his satchel and pulled out a small brown journal, filled with notes, and flipped it open. The scientist's dark eyes scanned over them, checking for imperfections in his formula. Herbert scowled and took a pencil from his bag as well, making corrections in some places and adding things in others. He eventually gave up on it and closed the journal, placing it back in his satchel. Herbert tapped his pencil against the wooden bar, eyes flicking back and forth.

Tony sauntered into the bar, already mostly drunk from the start. He didn't necessarily remember exactly how he had arrived there, or even what he drank to become so insanely intoxicated. Though he was drunk, he could still read formulas fairly well, how do you think he created all of those suits without going insane? The billionaire noticed a young man having drinks by the bar, looking at some sort of journal with some sort of science.

"Hey. Hello. Sir? Yes you with the sciwncy stuff? Hello. My name is Tony stark." It seemed strange, to introduce himself to a random man at the bar, but it was for SCIENCE, and that was enough for Tony.


sorry its short and I'm lazy

Hebert was quite focused on his notes when Tony came in and didn't here him enter the bar. The scientist took a rather long gulp of his own alcohol and shivered a bit. "Damn," He muttered to himself, running a hand through his hair again. He scribbled something else down, a personal reminder that read "Get fresher cadavers", and flipped another page or two before starting to mark again. Herbert drank again and gave a small sigh, still scribbling rather fervently.

He jumped as Tony came over, not having heard him. "West. Herbert West." The scientist said, looking up at him and closing his journal quickly. "Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Stark." Herbert continued.

Tony smiled graciously at the man, mostly because he was drunk and didn't really know what else to do, and partly because he almost recognized the name. Something about science, or maybe the news. Did he discover something amazing? Scientific feat? Who knew. "Nice to meet you, Mr West.I didn't mean to catch you off guard." Tony kind of ended up half mumbling, because being intoxicated was never good for the man.

Tony sat down on a barstool near Herbert, giving a curtious smile to the bartender as he mad his rounds, politely ordering... He didn't really know what... Something intoxicating, fruity? Never too sure with Tony. "What're you doing out?" He asked, probably a little too loud.

Herbert looked at the man with fairly wide eyes, calming himself down. Tony Stark. Live and in the flesh. Herbert was honestly fairly impressed, as he was aware of Mr. Stark's achievements and... actions of less merit. Even in Arkham, news traveled and was seen, no matter how small the town was. Herbert was just desperately hoping his name wasn't too known as, if he was, it definitely wouldn't be for anything good. "Ah, I was just... focused. Not your fault." Herbert murmured.

Herbert shifted slightly as Tony sat down next to him, aiming to cover up the bloodstains on his collar even more. He was sure Tony was too drunk to actually decipher them, but he wanted to be careful. "Hm? Oh, well... I was just escaping work. I haven't gotten much of a break and I figured what better way to take a break than to drink away that certain haunted feeling..." The scientist trailed off, finishing up his drink before ordering another one. "And I might ask the same of you, Mr. Stark." Herbert said, looking over at Tony.
