TAG Ananke Drakos
NOTES N/A

Unsurprisingly, the first thing Ananke decides to comment on is how she disapproved of the dress that he had picked out — in particular, the length of it. North raises a careful eyebrow before he suddenly bursts out laughing at the irony of it. Oh wow, Ananke really didn't know anything about just letting her hair down and having fun, did she? Then again, it wasn't entirely surprising — the only time he ever saw her outside of her uniform was when she was at home, and that place was pretty much just a glorified Military officer for her. Much as he was putting on this whole charade for his own fun, he couldn't help but honestly feel like she needed this just as much as he did.

“The dress being short is the whole point,” North muses finally once he finishes laughing at her comment. “You're playing the part of a young woman going out on a date with her stud of a partner—” he pauses, smirks, and waits just long enough for that to sink in before he continues, “and most of all, you're supposed to look sexy. You can't really do that if you're tripping on your dress all night.” Not that a long dress couldn't look hot as well, of course.

Ananke tries to further her point by bringing an altercation with the Jabberwockies into the conversation and North merely scoffs, dismissing her concerns with a dramatic wave of his hand.

“No need to worry about that, I'll be packing enough for the both of us,” he reassures her, pausing for a moment to think before a wolfish grin spreads across his face once more. “Besides, it's my duty as your superior officer to ensure your safety on this mission. You can depend on me,” he purrs in a voice that suggests otherwise. But regardless, he wasn't expecting trouble anyway.

There are so many things that North says that makes Ananke want to gag. 'Stud of a partner'. 'You're supposed to look sexy'. 'You can depend on me'.

That last one is particularly egregious to her.

For the millionth time the specialist wishes that there were an HR department that she could complain to that would actually listen. Maybe joining the military was a mistake. Maybe she should have gone into a difference profession. Maybe she could have been a bouncer. Or a manual laborer. A lot of things are starting to look more appealing to her by the second.

That being said, it doesn't change the obligation that hangs over her head by virtue of her having a job to do. And if this is really an official mission, in which Jabberwocky members need to be investigated, then she doesn't really have a choice beyond either cooperating or quitting forever. "Lead the way, then," she concedes with a heavy, heavy sigh.

NOTES N/A

Ananke is being surprisingly compliant. North expected her to kick up much more of a fuss, especially after the last few comments he'd made, but instead she seemed resigned to her fate and merely requests that they head out. For a moment he throws her a questioning gaze in response — almost as if to ask if she was sure — but the look quickly fades from his face and is instead replaced by one of his signature grins. Clearly she knew she didn't have a choice.

“Of course. The night is still young!” he announces dramatically. “Allow me to get dressed as well, and I will meet you at the entrance to the compound.” For a brief moment, North chuckles at the thought of asking the woman if she wanted to help him get changed, but he bites his tongue and merely waves her off before he heads back in the direction of his own office to change. He's not even worried that she'll run off in the meantime — he has the nose of a bloodhound, and would find her easily even if she did.
