001 Beginnings

“In the beginning was the earthquake," Chip murmured. "The earthquake was with evil and the earthquake was evil. A vampire came, sent by Morticon. She came as a witness to speak for the Darkness, so that everyone might understand it. She was not the Darkness, only a witness to speak for the Darkness...though she was bloody dark herself.

"And lo, the world sucketh."

"We don't need you to tell us, Chip," Vida snapped. "We know the world sucks. We're living in it, remember?"

"No we're not." Maddie's voice was soft, but—as always—they immediately turned to her. Maddie so rarely talked anymore.

"What was that, sis?" Vida coaxed her.

"We don't live here. We just exist here. This isn't living."

"Hey, Maddie." Xander laid a gentle hand on her shoulder. "Wanna come sit down? The fire's going. You must be cold. Come on."

Vida followed, sitting close beside Maddie to offer the only comfort they had left. Chip turned away, registering Toby's sympathetic look but not daring to react to it. Instead he ducked out of their shelter, wedging himself into a corner to continue the watch Xander had abandoned to help Maddie.

"And lo," he muttered bitterly, "the world sucketh."

I also love Chip. He's very Dustin-esque. They both have this fantastic way of getting right to the heart of whatever's going on, but the others ignore them cos they're so airheaded...

Re: *snerk*
There was a line in someone's Ninja Storm fic about how Dustin's way of thinking usually left him behind in team conversations, but it also sometimes allowed him to skip about three steps ahead of the rest of them too. I think that fits with Chip too.
