Kathy...Kathy wasn't doing so well. She had a whole slew of reasons why she wasn't doing well, from her realization she remembered everything about being dead, to finding out Raven had killed her family, to her run-in with Ezra at the Coterie-run bar when she'd just wanted to drown her sorrows the old-fashioned way, it had been one thing after another after a-fucking-nother.

Which was why the phone call at ten pm found her putting the last touches on her makeup and hair for an evening out on the town. Her outfit left very little to the imagination and even less as protection to the elements, but she didn't care. Hell, that was the whole point. This was the third night she was in Boston and the third night of making questionable choices in the pursuit of getting her brain to shut down so she wouldn't have to think about any of the things she didn't want to think about. Sure, it was a weeknight in the dead of winter, but Boston was a college town. There were always people willing to party.

Though that didn't explain how Eliot knew what was going on. She listened to his message with a frown and immediately called him back. The only person who knew she was here was Ezra, so who'd gone to Eliot, carrying tales?

[Eliot's thread is chronologically first, but open to phone calls or that guy in Boston if he'd like! NFB for off-island shenanigans. Content warning for alcohol as a coping mechanism in the comments.]

And Eliot immediately answered, relieved she wasn't going to try to hide from him. "Kathy, darlin'. You got my message?"

He might've, but he'd been a little distracted the last couple of days.

"I ain't gonna apologize for worryin' about you, kid," he said. So there was something to worry about, then. The cook was right, it did make a certain amount of sense. "I know this can't be easy on you."

Eliot had done worse himself, but one always does hope for better for one's children.

"Yeah, I done my share of splittin' to get perspective. Or to take my mind of things." He wondered suddenly if she was looking into . . . options. He hoped she understood that that fell firmly into 'no judgment' territory, but he couldn't think of how to broach the subject. "It, uh. Sounds like Raven's havin' a bit harder time with that, though."

"Now, darlin', I get that it feels like -- wait what?" . . . Did shapeshifting even work that way? "I woulda put my money on Dante."

Eliot recognized that sound. He'd gotten very good at identifying pouring liquids while working with an alcoholic mastermind.

"You may wanna cut that with somethin', darlin'," he said dryly. "You can get drunk if you want, but it ain't actually gonna do this situation any good."

"Kathy, no." He'd said no judgment, but this was a really bad idea. "Okay, that is not a solution. If that's what you wanna do that's not a problem, kiddo, we can make it happen, but straight liquor ain't gonna do it."

"No! I mean -- yes, there are pills for it. But you should be talkin' to someone about it first. A professional."

"Pretty sure that's not his specialty." Sure, he'd been a surgeon, but, like, a trauma surgeon or something. "And it's the 21st century, darlin'. I know your family was real strict and traditional and all, but we don't lock girls up for this stuff anymore."

"I'm sayin' I am," Eliot tried. "And -- it ain't even something to forgive, hon. These things happen."

"Well, I ain't got statistics on it." He sighed. "And, alright, I'm pretty sure it probably doesn't happen exactly like this all the time." The whole 'shapeshifting best friend is the father' bit? Definitely a rarity. "But that doesn't have to mean it's the end of the world."

"How 'bout . . . a turning point," Eliot offered. "You've been through a whole lot this year. This probably feels like . . . the cherry on top of all that. But you've --" Well. 'Survived' wasn't quite the word, was it. "-- you've persevered. I know you can get through this, too."

"Alright," Eliot said slowly. "I guess that's fair. But -- she did a lot for you too, right? Is this really somethin' to kick her out over?"
