"Do you?" Richie said, almost whimsically. "Sounds like there is a story behind that. Why not fill me in, and I'll see if there are alternatives."

Damien's eyes narrowed briefly at that sing-songy response, the glower released after a moment as he let out a quiet breath. "It ties back to the whole 'tried to make myself like women' thing." He began, mulling over exactly how much details to go into. "Started with just taking the edge off, then enough to not care about how it made me feel...it went badly every time, and I haven't touched it since." He looked to Richie at that, a note of mild discomfort clear in his features. "Will it be that much of an issue being part of the court if I don't do it, barring the folks you mentioned that would take it badly?"

"Well, sort of yes, sort of no. It's not really a requirement, though some rituals require ingestment in all Courts. But... Hedge Fruits are ultimately a lot more potent than any kind of human alcohol you could ever take into your body, and they are kind of part of our meal plan," Richie said calmly. "I imagine it would seem a bit silly comparatively, and a lot of the Court involves ... I don't want to say trying to forget, but trying not to let the past define you. And that sounds *deeply* like the past defining who you are now, especially when you ingest far worse things on the regular."

"Right." Damien nodded, going quiet as he thought for a long moment. "It's more of a self-control thing than anything, I guess." He finally continued, the words soft. "Not having a say in what I do because I'm too intoxicated to do so makes me really damn uncomfortable, because I've put myself in that position before for something that wasn't worth it."

"A fear of the loss of inhibition?" He smiled and said, "All it does is remove the walls you set up. Your goal is to not need those walls. Even if you can't, that's the end goal."

"I guess, yeah. Once bitten twice shy and all that." Damien nodded quietly, letting that thought percolate. "Some of those walls are there for a reason, though."

After some time, the other knight considered and said, "Alright, I tell you what? Why don't we do some clubbing. I Imagine you've run across the others to see what you think of them, so we'll do some standard court of innocence stuff and see how it feels for you and... well, I'll show you a trick or two based on your chosen preference."
