the shepherd.

For hey_capn_jack: Tagbrain revival attempt.

[[AU!Riftverse, more or less, assuming Book didn't vanish and Jack found himself back in the Tower.]]

Book is worried. This isn't exactly a novel feeling, but it's been growing more acute since the return of Captain Harkness. He's been on -- if not the same path, one that shares that general direction. It's enough to know the risks the Captain's taking just by coming back so soon.

Doesn't mean he can't handle it. What it does mean is that Book has a reason to be worried.

Perhaps that's why he's seeking Jack out for once. It's hard to play the concerned preacher with a man you've shot in the head, and the part of him that's still the Operative and always will be isn't a side he cares to put on display very often, but his conscience demands he at least face the man.

Jack, there's an Operative a preacher coming for you. Be... resigned?

你好 [[nǐhǎo/hello]]

I'm sorry if this reaches you at an inconvenient time, and I'm certainly not expecting an immediate response. I understand you're undoubtedly busy. However, I thought I should offer my services, if they're needed.

I'm Shepherd Derrial Book. I don't believe they have Shepherds here, so let me explain -- I'm a minister in a religious order established shortly after Earth-that-was was abandoned in my universe. It's a Christian order, rather strict, though we share some common points with Buddhism. This isn't the point of my offer, though I do have some experience in counseling, as relates to my calling.

My background from before my time in the abbey's given me a fair bit of knowledge of weapons, tactics, infiltration, and that's what I'd like to discuss with you.

I seem to have stumbled into the middle of a war that I don't know anything about, and although I'd ordinarily side with the angels, I'm disturbed by several of the things I've heard about the resident... "First Angel" is the term, isn't it?

From what little I've gathered, Torchwood, though it seems to be a covert-ops organization, is more concerned with people and less with this war. If that's the case, it seems like you're the ones I want to be helping. Again, that's only if you think you could make use of me. I won't be sitting on your doorstep waiting for a reply -- always room in the world for another wandering preacher. But I feel it's my duty as a decent human being and a Christian to offer my skills where they'll do the most good, and something tells me that might be with you.

Thank you for your time.

[OOC] Storylines

  • Crew: Although Book's perfectly happy as a wandering preacher, if he's to settle, he'll look for the familiar. People and roles that he's familiar with will make him far more comfortable, wherever he ends up. Gwen Cooper (torchwoodsheart), multiple openings.

  • The Flock: The people Book looks out for, the ones who turn to him for guidance. He'll be strong for them, no matter how much doubt he feels. Multiple openings.

  • The Operatives: Very few evil men believe that they are evil. That makes them all the more dangerous. Book knows the enemy -- he's been the enemy. And he'd rather steer clear of these people at all costs. They remind him too much of what he used to be, and have an unnerving habit of making that side of him necessary. John Thane (john_thane), Captain John Hart (lovesxbitch), multiple openings.
