Miach landed early in the afternoon. SHIELD had been able to get him a flight so early in the morning that he made it to Dublin by 1:30. They didn't ask why he needed an emergency flight. Even when he told them it was a family emergency they perked an eyebrow. Miach didn't care about his family, what little was left, and even that surprised his superiors. But after telling them he got a call from his lunatic brother saying he was going to wreck their friend's life because he had delusions about them being in love, the SHIELD admins found him a flight and decided not to ask more questions. Probably, Miach's story wouldn't be good for Séarlas' reputation, but he didn't care.

He took a cab to their house and forty minutes later he was standing out front of his childhood home. He hadn't been there in a very long time and the familiarity of the place crawled up his skin like an infestation of spiders. He hated this house. He hated this country. He hated everything.

Something occurred to him...perhaps, because this was a different reality, their parents would still be alive. The thought terrified him, and for a moment Miach considered calling the house before entering. But Séar would have mentioned that when they spoke the previous night, right?

Miach eyed the house. All was silent. Only Séarlas' rarely used car was in the driveway. Nothing out of the ordinary. Miach took a breath and walked in the front door. "Séar?" He shut the door behind him and steadied himself on the wall as unpleasant memories of adolescence flooded him. God, this was awful.

Séarlas was a bit of a wreck. Things were great while he was with David, of a sort.. But the reminder that the man wasn't truly his bothered him greatly, and as soon as he left the man's house, last afternoon, he felt guilty over it. He hadn't quite spoken to David since, other than a short text or a call to tell him he was going to be busy sorting out his work situation and.. other things. Lies, entirely, but necessary ones, to keep David from wondering.

He was in his house now, alone.. which after how long David had been with him, felt far more lonely than it would have been, in the past. Miach was supposed to come soon, despite his feeble attempts to tell him it was unnecessary. He must have sounded pretty bad, for Miach to insist on coming straight over.

When he heard the door open, and Miach's call, he was standing in the kitchen, half-heartedly attempting to write up an email from his phone, a cuppa in the other hand. He was a bit relieved with the distraction, and Miach's presence, despite the fact Meeka had never been the most comforting presence.

"Meeka," he called in return, setting both the phone and the cup down, and twisting in time to see Miach at the front door. He managed to look perfectly neutral, but of course Miach always knew him better than anybody. "Hi."

His brother was standing in the kitchen, one hand on a cup of tea and the other holding his phone. His eyes were glued to the screen, but Miach doubted he could actually see anything he was writing. Séarlas (or some sort of ghostly looking figure that slightly resembled his elder brother) was staring at him from across the kitchen and his greeting was so weak that Miach wondered if he'd actually spoken at all. He looked dreadful.

Miach O'Reilly could never be called a compassionate person. Nor a comforting one. Nor a good one. Or anything remotely positive. So instead of embracing his brother or offering a hand, Miach simply crossed the room and took his phone from him and placed it on the kitchen table. His own quaint way of insisting that Séarlas take a break from whatever work he was trying to do to distract himself.

"Let's chat," Miach said, and pulled out a chair for both himself and his brother and sat down. "The sooner we make sense of this, the sooner we can fix it and everything will go back to normal." He gave Séarlas a stern look as if to dare him to panic any further.

Séarlas frowned a little as Miach wordlessly strode over to him, and took his phone. He opened his mouth to voice a complaint, then changed his mind, frowning instead, and setting his cup down as well.

It was so like Miach, to skip over the pleasantries and anything else one might say to a brother he hadn't seen in a.. well, just a few days, he supposed.

He made a face when Miach suggested they chat, and took a seat. What was there to cheat about? He was having an affair. This was the sort of thing that could end up on tabloids and newspapers. The sort of thing that could ruin friendships and the like. He'd been thinking of adopting a child with David, of marrying the man, and all of a sudden he was married to someone else, and had a child.

"We can't just fix this, Miach.." Too bad Miach, Séarlas was still sort of panicking. "We.. He's married.. and they have a girl, an'.." He sighed heavily. "I don't understand. Why in the world..."

Sèarlas was panicking a little, that was clear. As soon as Miach was finished speaking he was off explaining everything that was wrong and how they couldn't fix things...but something was conflicting. His hair was much messier than normal. That could have been because he was too distracted to worry about how he looked, but he had definitely showered and at least put on nice clothing. His shirt was wrinkled and a little too tucked in on one side. That could have been him running around the house getting ready...but Miach also saw the tiny bruises along his collar.

"You had sex with him," he said suddenly, Wow, it had only been a few hours since he'd woken up. Slut. "Sèar, you said it yourself...he's married. With a child," Miach wasn't ashamed of his brother, but...it took the two of them months to persuade David to even kiss Sèarlas and somehow, in less than a day, he'd already gotten the man in bed? "How in God's name did ya manage that?"

He leaned back in his chair, crossing his arms over his chest, and stared at Seèarlas. It was a wonder he didn't over exert himself and give himself a heart attack just walking into the house. A complete change in someone's reality could be enough shock to their system that they simply can't handle it.

"I--" Séarlas blinked at him, so taken aback by the blunt words that he said nothing until the man had finished whatever he was saying, and asking how in the world they'd gotten together so quickly.

At first he thought Miach ashamed of him for having some part of an affair, but that last question.. that was a very good point. His face turned a little pink, as much from frustration as it was from embarrassment. "I.. I don't know," he sighed, pursing his lips.

"He seemed a little hesitant, but I... I.. well.." He smiled slightly, and eyed his brother, knowing how uncomfortable the younger man sometimes got about this sort of topic...though at the same time, he could just as easily be so blunt, as if it didn't bother him at all. "That's beside the point, isn't it? And how on Earth did you know? I didn't say anything, and you only just got here.."

Certainly didn't seem besides the point. Séarlas seemed to have jumped right to it. "You always sort of look the same after you've had sex," he said blandly. "And you've got two love bites on your neck that aren't covered very well." He pointed a bit to his brother's collar.

Miach was uncomfortable with the topic of sex...but usually only when it involved himself. He was able to talk about it with an air of nonchalance. It was just an activity people did, of course. Not him though, so don't touch on it. Séarlas? All the time.

"So now you're going to carry on an affair? Suppose it serves Marie right. Stupid cunt. Y'should make her find ya..." He wasn't often passionate, but if someone fucked with David they were going to be permanently on his bad list.

Séarlas blinked at him. His hand raised subconsciously to touch the love bites, rubbing his neck sheepishly and frowning. "Ah.." He shook his head. Well, that explained that. He'd have to make a quick visit to the bathroom, and see if he couldn't get them better covered, before he did go to work.. Even if he wasn't sure what he was supposed to be doing..

He winced when Miach talked about his being in an affair. "I guess.. It doesn't feel right, though. I mean.." He sighed again. "Being with David feels right--it always has. But he's got a family.. A child. I don't want to be the reason his kid doesn't have..." He frowned, feeling distinctly unsettled, and unhappy.

"It's just.. very bizarre, having.. gone from being in a perfectly happy relationship one day.. to that person not even remembering it happened, the next." He swallowed hard, hands rubbing together slowly for a moment, before he stood to walk back into the kitchen, mostly just so his brother wouldn't see the troubled look on his face. He hated this.

"Starting to feel a little crazy.."

"You aren't crazy," he said sternly. He hated that term. He'd been called it enough times in his life to know that it wasn't valid. Ever. "You have a right to feel confused and hurt. This is an unbelievably ridiculous situation. We will survive it though." He considered for a moment, but had no idea how to fix Séarlas' situation. It must have been miserable, but Miach had never been in love or experienced anything like what his brother was going through.

"Did you tell David what happened?" You know...while he was balls deep inside you. he thought bitterly. The world might be literally falling down around them, their lives were basically destroyed, and he was off seducing people. Doesn't matter if it was David, this certainly wasn't the time. "I'm guessing he was no help." He crossed his arms over his chest and huffed a little. "Well, for the record, neither was anyone at SHIELD." He'd left Ar1 with Karl when he was certain neither of them were going to disappear on him, and hoping they'd get some research done while he was gone. Beyond that, no one at SHIELD seemed to have any recollection of it, though he didn't delve too deeply.

"So I suppose we just have to...adapt to this?"

Give Séarlas a day or two, and he'd get past the relationship thing enough to look at the bigger picture. That the SHRA was gone, that thousands of lives had been altered in some way or another. But right now it was hard to look past David's new life.

He rubbed his hands over his face, and sighed. "Yes.. yes of course," he agreed. They'd survive. He'd had worse happen to him, and Miach, before, after all.. But this was a new sort of heartbreak for him.

Did he tell David? He smiled thinly, and nodded. "Aye, I did.. I wasn't going to, but apparently he reads me too well, which.." He frowned a little. He liked to think he was rather good at hiding his feelings when he needed to.. Then again, David had known him since he was very young.. Maybe that was it. He shrugged.

"He looked at me a bit like I was crazy," he said, using the word again. "But I think he believes me now, though he doesn't know what to do with it.." He made a bit of a face, and looked back at Miach. "...I guess so." He hated the idea. He wanted to find some magical solution that would bring everything back to how it was, but seeing as they didnt' even know what was happening, it was all but impossible. "I did some research, and found out a lot of stuff you probably already know.. Most of the changes in.." He made a vague gesture, "Seems to center in the States, but there are some alterations here, too.. I don't know what to make of it."

It only effected the States? "Well I guess then whatever did this did it in America. Probably was American too. They never remember the rest of the world. Something as major as this...figures they only applied it to their country..." But Miach knew that wasn't true. David was impacted...though he had been in America so...perhaps that was it.

"I have Karl and Ar1 working on it." He tripped over the cyborgs name a little bit. Before he'd left they'd had a very...monumental thing happen between the two of them that Miach wasn't too keen in bringing up to his older brother yet.

"So what are you going to do about the whole David thing then? He couldn't imagine Séarlas just allowing it to happen and then moving away from the only love of his life just because he didn't remember their relationship. They'd continue the affair at the very least he figured. Part of Miach wanted to march over and claim David back for him -- he just looked so upset -- but he knew that wouldn't be right.

Séarlas could only shrug. Maybe his mutant abilities would enlighten him at some point, but as he had no conscious control over when he saw visions, or even what he saw, they might never find out. Not that way. "It must be.. Politically at least, the SHRA is the only thing I can see that's changed much. We've the same government here, and England.." He made a flippant gesture, to signify other countries in general.

Karl and Ar1; yes, of course. He glanced over at Miach curiously. "And how is Ar1?" he asked, pronouncing it the same way Miach had, because.. he had no idea how to do so, otherwise. He knew Miach was rather fond of the android...person.. He was also wondering about Miach, himself, but his younger brother never responded well to doting.

And then the conversation was back to David, something he wasn't sure he wished to talk about. "Dunno," he admitted. He..wasn't going to just walk away from it all. He couldn't. He loved David.. and he knew the man wasn't terribly happy with his wife. But asking him to split with the woman--to split his kid's family apart? That wasn't something he was so sure about. "We're having an affair, apparently," he said, and would have laughed, had the circumstances been different. Instead he just smirked a little, and walked back over to flop on the couch.

"I would have bet money that I'd never let myself do such a thing, a couple of years ago," he added. He'd had a lot of boyfriends--a lot of boyfriends--in his life, but he'd steered clear of men who were already with someone else. He could just imagine the reaction the press would have.. Not that he weas constantly followed by paparazzi or anything, but an ambassador of Ireland having an affair with another man was just the sort of thing that tabloids liked to print. Pff.
