[PBP] Get up and dance!  
Characters: Shiranui Genma, Nara Shikamaru, Uchiha Sasuke, theoretical other people
Setting: Alchemy, an 80s & Darkwave dance club
Time: About 11pm
Open: YES!
Style: Play-by-post

In the end, it had been too hot for leather. He wound up wearing jeans and a tour shirt from that one time that New Model Army had come through. After checking and double-checking himself in the mirror -- Damn, my hair's getting long. -- he finally left his apartment and headed down to Alchemy.

He passed his ID and 500 yen to the girl at the door, and got stamped. The club was cheap because it was always packed -- tens of faces he'd never have names for alternately mobbed the bar and stomped around on the dance floor. He leaned to the side and slid between people, finally finding a reasonably clear piece of floor on which to dance. His motions were lithe and liquid compared to the wholsale stomp and grind that seemed popular in recent years. There would be no "industrial kicking people dance" for him.

He smiled, briefly, at a girl he caught checking him out. It was too bad she probably wasn't a day over ninteen. At this rate, it would be a long night.
Current Location: Alchemy

*is shot*
Leaning against one of the walls in a darker corner, he lit up a cigarette and watched the throng of dancing people boredly. For a guy like Shikamaru, the lights and music didn't make any difference at all - he was still very much indifferent to his surroundings. He didn't really know why he was at the club to start with, but in any case, it didn't actually matter where he was - as long as he could escape from his duties and the Estate.

He got his cellphone out from his dark, straight-cut jeans and turned it off. No disturbances tonight - especially not emergency phone calls from lousy hitmen.

There was a guy on the dance floor who had different moves - and long hair too - he mused, but he thought nothing more of that and went on watching the clubbers silently. Shikamaru straightened his black shirt a little. Perhaps he would pick up a girl and get a drink after this smoke.

Re: *is shot*
He spotted the guy in the dark corner for the very reason that he was standing in a dark corner. Genma took another look, just to make certain he wasn't about to be either killed or hired, but it didn't seem that the guy had any particular interest in him.

Just the same, it was probably time to circulate before anyone who cared did get a fix on him. He wandered toward the bar, intent on a shot or three of Stoli.

Zaku wasn't one to pass up a night out by himself. There have been a lack of orders lately, and he just spent the dull days watching TV or kicking back in a n empty park. Hell, he had cash to spare, so he felt that a little excitement in his life was called for.

The lines were long, but he got in easily due to his connections. He didn't even have to ask, but they just knew. It was almost sort of creepy, but he didn't question it. It was one less wait. The lights were hot on his head as he entered the club, and the chaotic movement of sweaty flesh on sweaty flesh didn't really help it either. The heat had him agitated already...

"Damn, it's like a fight just waiting to happen!" he exclaimed, tucking his ID back into his wallet. Heat didn't do to well with him, but if it stirred a ruckus, he was in!

There were a few familiar faces, but he rarely mingled with the others.

Back posture was almost too formal for his own good, sliding inside the Uchiha looked... different.

Perhaps it was the lacking in a hat? A loss of that pinstripe suit? Perhaps it was the silver facial jewelry that normally didn't appear outside his house?

Who knows...

Black shirt crawled up his torso and over his neck, tucking into his pants which where equally dark and relaxed over his boots. Snake tattoo visible on his left arm, crawling slowly up that pale flesh and coiling around it-- the ink looking so vividly black it seemed as it if had just been added that day.

Dark eyes flickered across the room, he wasn't sure what had finally compelled him to comply and come to the bar.

But there he was.
Shiranui Genmaslithridden on April 11th, 2007 12:31 pm (UTC)
He knocked back the last shot of Stoli -- it was, in fact, the third -- and eyed the newcomer. Young, certainly, but rather appealing -- black ink and silver trinkets lent the boy an exotic flavour. Maybe he wouldn't go home with an American girl, tonight...

He worked his way back onto the dance floor, a few feet from the space the boy occupied, and resumed his dancing. Muscles loosened with alcohol, he moved even more like a creature composed wholly of water, bending and twisting in what seemed, beneath the coloured lights, to be wholly impossible motions.

And all about, the sea of stomp-kick-stomp-punch-look_at_my_crotch-column_of_light continued.

Dark hues flickered to the movement, and for a moment his face remained blank before a light creep of a smirk touched over his lips as he tilted his head back just a bit.


Eyes scanned the room once more for a moment, noticing the wafting of cigarette smoke from the corner but unable to pinpoint (or see over the crowd) the user he didn't pay it any mind for the time being.

The place reeked of many things... Some Sasuke was positive where less than legal.

Not that he was surprised.
Shiranui Genma: tick tick boomslithridden on April 11th, 2007 12:50 pm (UTC)
Genma blinked as the boy looked up. Oh. Oh, no fucking way. I did not just almost hit on an Uchiha.

Right. Keep your cool. You can play this off. No one else can know you know, and he can be told that that was the idea.

He raised an eyebrow at Sasuke and held out his hand in an inviting gesture. It was a nearly universal sign for "come dance with me". He'd be able to offer his compliments once they were no longer shouting distance apart.

...And really, the kid did look good, tonight...
sadistic_yakuza on April 11th, 2007 12:55 pm (UTC)
He stared at the hand for a moment before pale digits raised to take the hand. Stepping forward he'd let himself draw in closer to the other male with a soft grunt passing his lips.

" Interesting place.." He murmured, half to himself and half to the other as those shoes pressed into the ground once he was near the other.

Okay so dancing didnt look complicated.

But it wasn't ever something he participated in.

Lip rings lightly clinked against his teeth as he seemed to have thoughtful frown on his face.
smokin_shika on April 11th, 2007 01:52 pm (UTC)
Shikamaru watched as Sasuke walked in, looking... different, but anyhow, what got him sniggering was that Sasuke was about to dance with that long-haired guy. It was dark, but he could still make out Sasuke's profile - someone like him just wasn't difficult to miss. It was at times like these that made observing his surroundings worth it.

He smirked and stubbed the cigarette on the wall he was leaning against. Change of plans. He was going to go up there and dance (even though it wasn't something he usually did) with some hot chick, right next to the Uchiha. Taunt him a little. The opportunity was too amusing to give up.

He cocked his head at a slightly drunk girl nearby, who giggled in response and let him lead her through the dancing crowd, until they were right next to Sasuke and who's-that-guy. Lips twitching slightly, he leaned in, and growled at her ear, "Make this hot."
Shiranui Genmaslithridden on April 11th, 2007 09:09 pm (UTC)
He eyed the guy that moved toward them, quickly looking him over for weapons or signs of impending mischief. It would not do to let someone attack the rich kid -- he'd never get another contract with the family. Hell, it wouldn't do to allow the rich kid to be recognised, in a place like this.

Twisting his face into a perverse leer, he ran a hand down Sasuke's side. Anyone watching would assume that he was making loaded comments of some sort.

"Hey, there. Don't I know you from somewhere?" That was loud enough to be heard by anyone close enough to listen. It was a cheap line, but he wasn't exactly known for his stunning displays of tact. Leaning in closer, he placed his lips next to the boy's ear. "I almost didn't know you. Well done, well done. But this guy with the cigarette... I think he knows you, too."

He winked and smiled, as though he'd made some sort of innuendo-laden offer, just to prevent anyone from assuming that a real conversation might be going on. Wishing that the music would go back to something a little less electronic, he started dancing with Sasuke -- slowly, at first, so the kid could keep up.
sadistic_yakuza on April 12th, 2007 08:54 am (UTC)
Body twitched just faintly at the touch to his side-- he couldn't help it. Sasuke was generally not one for touching; at least not in the sense they where touching now.

Eyes flickered to the side for a moment, one thin brow raising before his eyes locked onto the man the other had been speaking of--" Shikamaru..."

Damn it.

He couldn't pull back and leave now, his pride wouldn't let him do anything of the sort and so he allowed himself to be pulled closer to the man who seemed to have some sort of... oral fixation (every time he saw him he had something in his mouth).

" Mmhmm..." Was the reply as he did his best to act as if he didn't acknowledge the other clan-member who had approached.
smokin_shika on April 12th, 2007 12:29 pm (UTC)

Shikamaru grinned in mild triumph - it wasn't like he was winning anything, but now he knew that Sasuke'd noticed his presence, and he was certain that the Uchiha was very disturbed.

His eyes were however, still fixed on the girl, who just giggled more and leaned in very, much closer. Shikamaru blinked - it'd been a long time since he'd done something like this - but he didn't let his face show any hint of surprise. In fact, he just let his grin widen a little more and responded appropriately.
sadistic_yakuza on April 12th, 2007 02:02 pm (UTC)
Twitching slightly the Uchiha glanced over with those black lined eyes, half-lidded he glanced towards the girl with a mocking raise of his brow at the pony-tailed male-- though he didnt say anything outloud.

He didnt need to; he knew his smirk spoke for itself.
smokin_shika on April 12th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
Shikamaru's eyes narrowed; he saw that smirk - hur, what the hell did the Uchiha think he was smirking at?

A scowl was slowly creeping onto his face - but he rearranged his features almost instantly, such that he maintained a cool smile, even though he was itching to roll his eyes at Sasuke. The girl was pretty touchy-feely, and he took advantage of that as he went on dancing. Perhaps there were other things to look forward to later that night.
Shiranui Genmaslithridden on April 12th, 2007 06:43 pm (UTC)
He watched the silent exchange between the two boys. Oh, shit. Well, you got him into this, it's probably time to offer to get him out.

Again, he leaned closer, this time, pretending to smell the Uchiha's hair. "You know him; it's in your hands. What should I do to ensure this doesn't have an unhappy ending?"

He rolled the black twist-pencil from one corner of his mouth to the other, in an irritated gesture. He couldn't leave his fucking house, lately without something going wrong. He supposed it was the price he paid for not botching his jobs. Memories of Rai in the hospital flashed through his head and he shuddered, briefly, before regaining his composure.
sadistic_yakuza on April 12th, 2007 11:47 pm (UTC)
" I don't know..." Sasuke murmured as he looked over Genma for a moment before to Shikamaru, bastard.

Stepping forward he would allow his arms to raise just a bit, but his eyes flickered to the Nara, " Shikamaru.... Something you wanted?" He offered that seductively condecending smile to the Nara as one thin eyebrow raised.

Head turned back towards Genma with a low murmur near his cheek warm breath barely brushing the skin, " Our familys do business together..."
smokin_shika on April 13th, 2007 12:50 am (UTC)
His lips curled up at one corner as he calmly replied, "No, nothing. Just visiting." He didn't even bother to look at the Uchiha - he had enough on his hands with the girl as it is.

"He's an interesting catch," he commented, cocking his head in the long-haired guy's direction. "You have a thing for guys who don't cut their hair, don't you?" A smirk formed, but the girl seemed pretty annoyed that Shikamaru's lost attention and she moved even closer to him (if it was even possible).
Shiranui Genma: tick tick boomslithridden on April 13th, 2007 06:30 am (UTC)
He relaxed a bit and pulled Sasuke a bit closer, lowering his lips to the angle of the boy's jaw. "Ah. Business. Seems to have an interest in provoking you, though."

He levelled his most insincere dead-eyed simper at the one the boy called Shikamaru. The gaze conveyed, with no verbal assistance, one simple idea: 'I win; I have all the toys'. He'd started riots in stuffier places than this simply by bestowing the look on some poor businessman while providing the latter's wife with a glass of wine.

The occasional riot, after all, was good for the soul.
sadistic_yakuza on April 13th, 2007 12:00 pm (UTC)
" Mmhmm.." He agreed, which he didnt doubt Shikamaru was doing a good job of doing. Feeling himself drawn closer he really didnt protest, just let his eyes flicker from one to the other, one hand lightly resting upon Genmas shoulder to try and keep himself and a comfortably relaxed pace.
smokin_shika on April 13th, 2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
Shikamaru raised an eyebrow at the guy Sasuke was dancing with. Did he just try to stare him down? He rolled his eyes in return, almost snorting. For god's sake, he didn't care who Sasuke danced with, he was just there to piss him off.

In any case, it wasn't like he was able to do anything else soon. The girl'd begun to run a hand down his back, and if it weren't for Sasuke's presence, he would have flinched.
Shiranui Genmaslithridden on April 13th, 2007 06:45 pm (UTC)
He'd managed to rule out jealous former lover from the list of potential relationships, which meant that at the very least, he was unlikely to take a knife in the back, this evening. That certainly brightened the mood.

He decided to watch the scene unfold a bit more before doing anything else obnoxious. On the bright side, the Uchiha was annoyed enough that he appeared to have lost his reservations about dancing -- and more to the point, reservations about dancing with him.

He kept his moves liquid but simple, so the boy could keep up and look good doing it.
sadistic_yakuza on April 13th, 2007 09:36 pm (UTC)
" Tch..." The noise barely passed pale lips as he turned his head away from Shikamaru, body moving slowly to the rhythm-- he wasn't a terrible dancer, but it really wasn't his forte.

" Don't mind Shikamaru, he'll apparently pick up any old slut in the bar...~" He glanced to the girl, back to Shikamaru, offered his favorite condescending smirk before glancing back to Genma, never losing pace in the dance.

Pale lips parted with a small devious grin tugging his lips now, that silver jewelry occasionally flickering in the light as fingers raised up to push a few of those extra long strands back behind his own ear which was an was case to show off just a bit of the shine.

... If Oyabun-gankooyaji Ever saw him doing this...
Shiranui Genmaslithridden on April 13th, 2007 09:48 pm (UTC)
"Any old slut?" He eyed the girl critically, and ensured that he was just loud enough to be overheard, for a change. "Hm, well I guess I'll just count myself lucky to have caught the belle of the ball."

He caught Sasuke under the chin with one knuckle and tipped the boy's head to look into his eyes. He smiled -- an amusedly lusty look.
sadistic_yakuza on April 13th, 2007 11:19 pm (UTC)
The Uchiha was good at alot of things-- though situations like these where not one of them. Dark eyes left Shikamaru and the girl with the tilt of his head to let those black orbs roll back to the taller figure curiously.
smokin_shika on April 14th, 2007 03:54 am (UTC)
Slut? Shikamaru rolled his eyes again. It wasn't like Sasuke was dancing with a gentleman himself.

"At least I'm not the BELLE," he snorted, while allowing himself to be dragged away by the chick. But he made sure that he didn't leave without Sasuke seeing the sneer on his face.
sadistic_yakuza on April 14th, 2007 11:11 am (UTC)

There where few things that could get to the Uchiha so quickly; one of them was to insinuate he had some sort of femininity.

Few had the Gaul to do that to his face.

" Come back here and I'll show you who the Belle is!" HE called out, momentary loosing his cool.
smokin_shika on April 14th, 2007 03:52 pm (UTC)
Shikamaru turned back and sniggered at the Uchiha, but he didn't stop walking.

In his opinion it was a much better choice than going back there, because then, it would be much more embarrassing for Sasuke if he couldn't even get hold of the man he wanted to hit.
