He tenses when he see Altair approach. “Greeting’s-” He frowned momentary forgetting how he should properly greet him. “Grandmaster. My father has mentioned many things about you, it’s an honor sir.”

*gives a hint of a smile at the boy* You needn’t be so formal right now, Tazim. You are free to call me by name, as you once did.

Curiosity Killed the Eagle

the1stborn:

Darim failed fighting off the frown showing up on his features at the comment of his father. He wasn’t like him, at all. That’s what he was thinking.. The young man remained quiet, however, to listen to his father’s explanations. Upon hearing the elder’s words the look on his face changed into a weird mix of confusion, disgust and disbelief. A man lying with other men? How was that even supposed to— No, he really didn’t want to think about it. Actually, he’d have never thought about such a thing being possible at all if he hadn’t heard it right now. It seemed far too… wrong. 

Albeit he felt even worse uncomfortable now seeing the new dubious knowledge he had gained, and of course Altair’s gesture told him his father felt the same way, he still felt a weird curiousness dwelling up within him. And even though he sure didn’t want to know further about the topic itself- It’s roots sure interested him. “But.. that’s— sick. I mean… are these.. men- Are they ill? Insane?”

"Some say they are…" Altair hesitated, dreading his son’s reaction. He really was so similar to himself, ignorant and quick to judge. Ah, how foolish his youthful arrogance had made him all those years ago…

"I, however, do not." He knew that this would be like a stone cast into a pond. "I do not fully understand these men, and thus I try to abstain from judging them." He reached into the cage to stroke the head of a bird, soothed by its soft coos. "Affection may be part of the cause, is what I’ve surmised so far."

“Greeting’s Father.” 

He said with no particular excitement in his voice, not bothering to set down his book. “Is there something you need of me?”

Malik stopped mid-step, eyebrows drawing together to look at his son with an inquisitive glare. “No. Who pissed in your hummus this morning?”

Okay, no other Maliks ever need apply. THIS MALIK IS BEST MALIK WITH BEST SNARK EVER.

“…A while ago I watched the execution of two men being accused of sodomy.” He stops for a moment, feeling uncomfortable of making his unknowing obvious. “..I wondered if you can explain to me what sodomy means.”

PS: *likeIwillaskyoufirstifI’mallowedtorunawaywithConnor*

… Truth be told, I never expected my children to ask such difficult  questions, especially of this nature. I suppose you are too much like me. *sighs, resolving himself* The act you speak of means that they were accused of laying with other men. The people of the 3 faiths that dwell in this land -Muslim, Jew, and Christian- view this as both a crime and sin deserving death.

*turns back to the bookshelf to gaze at the pigeons resting in their cage, obviously troubled by the subject*

theapparentheir sent: Father? Can I ask you something?

Of course, Darim, you can ask me anything.

*chuckles, a smirk emerging on his face— the insult has become a sort of nickname over the years of their long friendship* Malik, I know that you’re pleased to have a newborn son, but calling him a novice seems harsh, hm?

Ha ha. <Moves his hand from his shoulder after giving a small shove> My newborn has  cleverer retorts than you. But enough - I assume all is well?

*winces at the shove* Naam, everything is fine, though I’d prefer if you didn’t reopen my wound. My shoulder aches enough as it is.

Safety and peace, my friend. ((Eeee, a Malik at last! *fangirl flailing* Finally someone to call me novice all the time, ahaha!))

dai-swagger:

Ah, so you’ve decided to grace me with your presence. <His tone is low but actions warm as he puts a hand on the other’s shoulder> My work has now doubled with your return, as now I have yet another novice to babysit.

(Sdjkgdk I only hope I do him justice)
