Good, because it was getting a little awkward — talking about this kind of thing with the Security Chief wasn’t exactly something he’d expected when he’d sat down in the Rudder. Polishing off the remnants in his glass he twists in his chair, waving to Belle with a wink, ‘two’ he mouths, the woman grabbing the bottles, bringing them over to the table. He exchanges caps for the bourbon then turns back to Harkness and pushes a bottle towards him.
"Shouldn’t do that." He taps his finger on the table matter of factly. Thinking was the route cause of problems, if you didn’t think then you didn’t have a problem, easy.
Drown them in drink and just fucking forget for a while.
"Funny," he rolls his eyes, “I’m drinking because I’m stupid, there’s a difference." he was drinking because he liked it, he was drinking because it dulled the urge to go and break his sobriety to chems.
"You oughta’ loosen up, you’re not working now right? Fuckin’ forget all that shit—" he thinks momentarily, remembering the rumours, oh fucking right, yeah—!
"Hey so, can you even like get drunk?" he gives Harkness a knowing look, "You know cause you’re a robot and everything because shit that’s impressive, they thought of everything when they made you didn’t they?”
Harkness laughed loudly. There was more than a few lines that he could say to Wally about thinking but the Kid managed to insult himself. He smirked over the rim of his glass and gestured with a small tip of the drink, a symbol of thanks.
“At least you’re not lying to yourself" Harkness muttered, loud enough to hear. Really, it should be taken well. Harkness wouln’t act llike this around him if he disliked him. It would be a hell of a lot worse. He took another deep drink
If Harkness had a cap every time someone told him to relax or loosen up he would be a very rich damn android. He shrugged. it was just his nature. Raising an eyebrow at the question Harkness sat back keeping a silence for a moment. “Yes" he confirmed.
“I was designed to act and appear as human as possible, So it either effects my system or my system thinks that the appropriate reaction is to appear intodxicaton. Either way I get to have a good time.” There was no acting about it
“They sure did" his tone was begrudiging. He wasn’t exactly their biggest fan.
