Guess what's back!
Welcome to the Dancing Fox Inn! Come and try our one of a kind beverages and food, chat with friends, or grab a private room and relax. All are welcome to the Dancing Fox Inn.
Back again!
We would like to ask, please, no smoking in the establishment. Thank you for understanding.. Be sure to enjoy your stay.
White Text is back! Mocking your memes!

If your characters are upstairs, please use this thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100440) to avoid confusing the other occupants
So, what to add in the white text.
There is no map. The Inn has as much space as is needed, as many tables as is needed, as many rooms as needed (Upstairs), as many corners as needed, and so on.
There is, however, a description:
How about Steak tasting better with a Steak-Taste-Better pill?
The inn is . . . indescribable. Size wise, anyway. It has as many tables as needed, and as many chairs as needed. So that needn't be said as well.
However, the floors have been . . . completely changed.
They were rough hewn logs. They are now laminated hardwood. All of the broken, dirty glasses and silverware have been removed, and replaced with better, more functional (And clean) ones. The kitchen is, by far, the best room in the inn. Sparklingly clean, the best equipment out there, and so on. The entire inn has been renovated. It is now made of better wood, and is much cleaner. It's not the prettiest building in the town, but it's functional. Which is what counts.
Also, any damage done to the inn will fix itself by the next day. So don't worry.

Disclaimer: The only thing changing about the inn is the size. So it will allow anyone in. And will supply as many corners as needed. Nothing else is changing. And it never does change. It just . . . you watch it, it . . seems to stay the same, but you know it changes, but . . . it doesn't, but . . .. (Think about it, and your head will explode)
Ooh! Or Llama llama ducks!
Current Staff:
Nerick- Barkeep and Manager
???- Barboy
Gabriella - Barmaid
Julie - Waiter

NOW HIRING: A Waiter / Waitresses, Barboy.
If you're none of these but think you can help, ask about a job, ask Nerick, IC.

Eldena is back at the bar with her tea.

((Yay first post!))

As Neil leaves the DFI (And Vocusta), something falls out of his pocket. He doesn't notice.

2009-11-07, 11:55 AM
This guy (http://ingeneri.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/black_saints_chaos_space_marine.jpg) walks in. He sits down, and orders a drink.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 11:56 AM
Eldena looks over at the giant machine thingy and shrugs then goes back to sipping her tea.

2009-11-07, 11:57 AM
Riace is satisfied all his things are working. He looks over at what was dropped. But it's to Vo to pick it up. He studiously ignores the marine.

((Because he and Jon deadtime.))

2009-11-07, 12:07 PM
The guy looks at her. Then he looks back at his drink.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 12:16 PM
Eldena just continues to sip her tea her mind wandering off to thoughts of Bear every now and then.

2009-11-07, 01:01 PM
(( I is dancing with one of my ferrets to the allman brothers on a saturday. Life is good. ))

More klunking is heard from upstairs.

2009-11-07, 01:02 PM
I is gitarring.
And Towning.
... It's been a while since the last broadcast.
... Yeah.

2009-11-07, 01:04 PM

...((None of yer business, that's what! :smalltongue:))

2009-11-07, 01:06 PM
Chris walks down in his techna armor, about 12 feet tall, and his jaw drops at the new friggin' horus heresy being in town.
The hell is this, a convention?!

(( :smalltongue: ))

Reposting, in case you missed it, Mr. Bean.

2009-11-07, 01:08 PM
Thryza notices Mr. Horus.
Oh. Yeah.

Vo notices the thing that fell from Neil's pocket and goes to pick it up.

2009-11-07, 01:09 PM
Chris rolls his eyes and breaks a chair trying to sit down.

What Durp said. A ring box. With a very shiny diamond ring.

((I hate you so much right nooooow.))

2009-11-07, 01:14 PM
Vo takes one look at the ring and bites her lip.
I'm not gonna cry. Not now. I'll save it for later, when we're not in this mess...
She sniffs, wipes her nose on her sleeve, and pockets the ring.

2009-11-07, 01:15 PM
Mr. Horus, as you all refer to him, nods back at them.

((I honestly thought I was the only one who knew crap about 40k.))

2009-11-07, 01:16 PM
(( Good sir, I just know my emotionless town relationships. This kind of this happens every week. ))

Chris whistles "Jessica" to himself. It would appear his techna helmet has a speaker system.

(( Falgorn, the same could be said for myself. I'm glad It's not true. ))

2009-11-07, 01:17 PM
Thryza goes over to Chris to check out his armor, sitting down in his big steely lap.
You've got enough lap space for me and the girls on this thing. Remind me to remind you about that once we save them and everything.
((Am I the only one who knows about string theory here?))

2009-11-07, 01:19 PM
(( Nurp. ))
Chris' armor is now A bright green and gold, as opposed to its earlier pallor of dark teal.
I will, don't worry.

2009-11-07, 01:24 PM
((My Science Teacher said that there is no String Theory when I tried to explain it to him. I looked like a fool. :smallsigh:))

2009-11-07, 01:26 PM
(( Whenever people try to deny what I say, I just plug speakers into my ipod and start to do the caramelldansen. They admit that they're wrong pretty quickly. ))

2009-11-07, 01:28 PM
Pallor is paleness. Dark teal isn't pale.
I'm insufferable.
By the way, nice paint job---wait, another broadcast!
The screen projects.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for this season of Killing Floor's first one-on-one battle.
At one end, we have Gauge, the armored champion from last season! A tall, armored man with a longsword strides in.
At the other, we have this season's best new contestant, Chol Wogal!
The crowd goes WILD as Chol walks in, having been put into these clothes. (http://public5.tektek.org/img/av/0911/d06/2250/f327474.png)
((String Theory is win.
Caramelldansen is win too.))

2009-11-07, 01:33 PM
(( Indeed... ))
Oh, good christ, it's like that rave she went to a while back.

2009-11-07, 01:36 PM
... What have they done to my baby?

Let's get down and dirty, people!
Chol and Gauge circle one another, drawing closer... closer...
Gauge strikes with his longsword!
But too early. Chol quickly dodges and kicks the swordpoint up and away from herself, causing Gauge to step back for balance's sake.
She goads him into swinging and missing again, and her talons rake his armored backplate.

2009-11-07, 01:37 PM
Oy. One of these days she's gonna grow a brain and just shout her coordinates at the camera...

2009-11-07, 01:40 PM
Yeah, 'cause they totally would tell her or let her find out so she'd be able to do that.
Or, you know, not that.

Gauge turns with a backhand swing of his empty hand. Chol rolls to the floor, but comes up with boots in the air when Gauge decides to tower over her.
Oooh, he shoulda worn a groin-plate.
He reels.

Chas the mage
2009-11-07, 01:47 PM
Richard and the younger version of richard are here.

Chas is here.

Eldgrim the norseman is here.

2009-11-07, 01:50 PM
He drums his fingers on the table, and ends up breaking it.

2009-11-07, 01:53 PM
He drops the sword with a clang.
Chol steps on it, grabs the handle, and breaks it in half.
With the half-sword, she quickly decapitates him.
The crowd goes wild for her.
They've turned her into their puppet.
She'll kill as many people as they tell her to... because they've got Bio to use as incentive.

2009-11-07, 01:58 PM
We have to find her. We have to.

2009-11-07, 02:01 PM
And now, ladies and gents, our little gladiator has earned the chance to see her sister!
The shot cuts to a camera following a handcuffed Chol down the hallway to Bio's cell.
Door opens, and I'm pretty sure Bio's unharmed.
Are you okay?
Durp, work your magic.

I like my blue hankie.
It needs to be washed, though.

2009-11-07, 02:03 PM
(( Wha...?? ))

A bag is lifted off her head.
Chol? That you? I... What are you wearing? Where the hell are we?! They told me something about an arena...

2009-11-07, 02:08 PM
Sis... I have no idea where they've got us. But they have me fighting people in this arena show called the Killing Floor.
I have to do what they tell me. They said they'd hurt you otherwise.
She sniffs, then runs toward Bio.
And collides with a force field.
Lemme tell ya, folks. The announcer's voice emanates from the hovering camera-pod. It's like ol' Gilead Kelgan himself said just after the war: get somebody's loved ones in one hand, and you've already got the person's will in the other hand.
... Gilead Kelgan.
Run a check on that.

2009-11-07, 02:10 PM
Beep Boop boop. Search.


2009-11-07, 02:13 PM
That was cute, wasn't it? Puts me in such a good mood that...
There you go.
Forcefield lets Chol through. HUG TIEM.
Ready for calculations.

2009-11-07, 02:14 PM
The thing is searched. He waits for it to load.
Damn dial-up.

Tiem is hugged. A tear comes out of Bio's eye.
Don't worry, Sis, they're coming...

2009-11-07, 02:17 PM
I know...
I'll fight for you, sis. I'll kill everybody I meet. Sniff.

The crowd goes AWWWW.
Our ISP needs an enema!

2009-11-07, 02:19 PM
It probably should be loaded by now.

2009-11-07, 02:25 PM
Chris is given the details. Vo peers at them and begins calculating the settings for, like, how to get there.

Okay, you two. Time's up for now.
Chol is dragged away.
Turns out we've got extra time, and that means a mass carnage round.
Chol is put into a fancy red duster (http://public5.tektek.org/img/av/0911/d06/2249/5f01686.png) and into the arena... which is full of cannon-fodder warriors.
Kill all of them.
And if you make it good for the camera, you'll see your sister soon.
Chol sets about destroying the poor guys. She puts a sort of glam into it... and seems to enjoy what she thinks is righteous vengeance on her captors.
She doesn't understand that she's just another ratings-raiser.

2009-11-07, 02:27 PM
Bweoof! A portal to said dimension appears.

2009-11-07, 02:30 PM
Vo points her gloved hand at the portal in a "gun hand" gesture.
Screw portal guns, I've got one too. But I have the right parameters.
A bolt of energy bursts from her fingertips and arcs around the portal's rim, clarifying the point of entry and exit.
Thryza and Vo leap in... to the Random thread!

2009-11-07, 02:31 PM
Chris jumps in as well, his helmet materializing over his head.

2009-11-07, 05:41 PM
Way to include other people in the plot guys....
way to go...
*shakes head*
*turns on WoW*....))

2009-11-07, 05:59 PM
Riace has gone to reset machines at home.

Joneleth is here, sitting at a table, lost in thinking.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 09:46 PM
Eldena is here. Studying a scroll.

2009-11-07, 09:50 PM
Riace waves to Eldena. Since some people had to go save Chol by themselves.

Joneleth waits for Seiner or Leo or Alex to undeadtime.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 09:51 PM
Eldena waves back. Not remembering whether she has met Riace yet.

2009-11-07, 09:52 PM
She has, but sometimes you just forget people.

Hey. What's that you're reading?

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 09:54 PM
Oh nothing just a scroll. I am trying to learn some new spells.

2009-11-07, 09:57 PM
Like, magic? They have that here?
Clueless little guy.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 09:59 PM
She laughs.
Yes I do mean magic. And yes they do have that here.

2009-11-07, 10:00 PM
He nods slowly. Okay, okay. I can deal with that. Maybe I can even learn some of it myself.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:02 PM
Eldena smile.
Maybe. If you ever have the ability to learn magic come to me and I will teach you a few spells.

2009-11-07, 10:03 PM
Can't anybody learn it? It might be easier for some, but eventually, right?

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:08 PM
I really don't know. I studied almost every possible thing about magic. But I never really cared about how people ended up being able to use it. I mean I could use magic, did it really matter why?

2009-11-07, 10:10 PM
He shrugs. No, I suppose it doesn't. Not since we all can. How long did it take you to learn?

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:13 PM
Well I learned in two years. But it's been 25 years and i still haven't mastered it yet.

2009-11-07, 10:14 PM
Well, I wouldn't think so. It's just about the most complex thing out there, right?

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:15 PM
I would say so yes. But it is a passion of mine so I don't mind the time I spend learning it. One of my two main passions really.

2009-11-07, 10:16 PM
Right. I will come see you when I'm ready to learn.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:21 PM
Eldena smiles.
I will be here.

2009-11-07, 10:25 PM
Riace smiles back. Alright. I'll let you study for now.

Unless stopped, he steps away, and goes to talk to an NPC.

Viera Champion
2009-11-07, 10:29 PM
Eldena goes back to reading the scroll. She keeps getting distracted by words repeating in her head. They were Bear's parting words.

Just a little longer and you will have me all to yourself.
How long ago had that been? 4 weeks?
No no. Don't worry about Bear. You have more important things to do. You can spend time with him when he gets back.

Viera Champion
2009-11-08, 11:58 AM
Eldena is back at the bar again.

2009-11-08, 12:15 PM
Riace is back at a table, wondering why he comes here.

Jon is talking quietly to the tree, looking very sad.

Viera Champion
2009-11-08, 12:16 PM
Eldena sits down next to Riace. She smiles.
Have you discovered the ability to use magic yet?

2009-11-08, 12:17 PM
Jon is talking quietly to the tree, looking very sad.
Seiner is here; she sees Jon and watches curiously.

2009-11-08, 12:20 PM
Riace smiles and shakes his head. Hello Eldena. No, not yet. I thought it might be connected to psychic powers, but that doesn't seem to be it.

Jon appears to be carrying on a conversation, stopping to listen, answering. Right now he's talking about the source of responsibility, if she can hear him.

Viera Champion
2009-11-08, 12:21 PM
Well keep trying. You will get it eventually.

2009-11-08, 12:22 PM
Seiner just sorta... watches.

2009-11-08, 12:25 PM
Right. I mean, you said it took you 2 years, right? I shouldn't expect to start getting it immediately.

So, we agree it's mainly from their intentions? And a second bit from what they do? He pauses. So the initiator has a second responsibility, separate from that of the actor. Okay. Thank you.

He notices Seiner, smiles a little and waves.

2009-11-08, 12:26 PM
She waves back with a smile. She looks a little better than before.

2009-11-08, 12:31 PM
He looks worse than before, but better than he did a few minutes ago.
Just ask, okay? he says to the tree, before he gets up and walks over to Seiner.

2009-11-08, 12:32 PM
Hey. You okay?

2009-11-08, 12:33 PM
Mr. Horus is around, eavesdropping. Because he has nothing better to do.

2009-11-08, 12:36 PM
He nods. Yeah. I was a bit upset, but I'm alright now. You seem better too, ah?

2009-11-08, 12:37 PM
Yeah, I am, actually. Just finished one of my therapy sessions, and I feel way better about everything.
What were you upset about?

2009-11-08, 12:39 PM
Nel sighs. Seeing you feel guilty over everything earlier, because I feel like it was all my fault anyway.

2009-11-08, 12:41 PM
Well, if it puts your mind at ease, I've finally just moved on from all that. She smiles.

2009-11-08, 12:43 PM
He smiles back. Yes, it really does.
So what have you been doing since then?

2009-11-08, 12:44 PM
Mostly just spending time with my family, really. Le shrug.

2009-11-08, 12:48 PM
That's a good thing, right? Or would you rather have been elsewhere? Must be nice.
I've mostly just been fixing up the machines we left in the past.

2009-11-08, 12:49 PM
It was nice...

What kinda machines?

2009-11-08, 12:52 PM
Well, of course.

A helicopter, telescopes, blocks. That, he feels, deserves a shrug. So it gets one.

2009-11-08, 12:54 PM
Oh, cool. How're they holding up now?

2009-11-08, 12:56 PM
I think they're all working again now.
He goes to sit down, unless she's been standing.

2009-11-08, 01:04 PM
You're great at building stuff, aren't you?

2009-11-08, 01:08 PM
I guess I'm pretty good at it. Do you need me to make something?
Kind of awkward to answer.

2009-11-08, 01:12 PM
No, it was just a rhetorical question compliment... thingy. She shrugs.

2009-11-08, 01:16 PM
Thank you. I guess I kind of missed it. Nel smiles slightly.

2009-11-08, 01:17 PM
It's fine. And you're welcome.
She smiles back.

2009-11-08, 01:21 PM
Alright. Still nice of you to say so.

2009-11-08, 01:23 PM
This is awkward.

2009-11-08, 01:27 PM
Yeah. :smallsigh:
So what sort of plans do you have now? Spending time with your family is good, but it can't be everything.

2009-11-08, 01:34 PM
My characters are here blah.

2009-11-08, 01:36 PM
Well, I don't really know what I'll do. She shrugs.

A friend of mine is coming to Town with me here to guide him on the path to success, by the way.

2009-11-08, 01:37 PM
((We'll all donate a bit))
Ravik sighs as he thinks about what might be happening to Chol and how this'll affect Maria.
How can I have my daughter be friends with a mass murderer...?

2009-11-08, 01:39 PM
((And try not to scare them away))

I guess you don't really have to yet. Something will come up eventually.

2009-11-08, 01:41 PM
I guess so.

But Chol's a nice mass murderer!

2009-11-08, 01:45 PM
Mhm. Say, is there anything you'd like to do now?

Being a mass murderer doesn't mean you can't have friends.

2009-11-08, 01:45 PM
((I see...
"Nice Mass murderer" almost as bad as "Super liver"))

Ravik just sits there.

((Just remember he's also a father looking out for his daughter...
He always will be paranoid...))

2009-11-08, 01:46 PM
I can't think of anything, but if you have any ideas I'll hear 'em.

2009-11-08, 01:51 PM
((What's wrong with Super Liver?))

Nel thinks through some ideas and discards them.
No, nothing in particular. I'm happy enough to see that you're well, and be here without having to go rescue anyone.

2009-11-08, 01:52 PM
Yeah, finally some time to just chill.

Super liver?

2009-11-08, 01:53 PM
I don't even know.


((Deadtime for some while))

2009-11-08, 01:55 PM
((See? Doesn't make any sense...
But I found a legitimate reason to use the term once...
That was a strange day...))

All my characters are still here.

Abigale walks in, she looks 6 months pregnant (which is a good thing, because she is 6 months pregnant).

2009-11-08, 02:23 PM
Ravik glances over.
I see it's coming along.
good thing this one is natural...

2009-11-08, 02:31 PM
Abigale nods. "I'm not sure how my powers would affect a baby, so I'm just playing it safe."

2009-11-08, 02:35 PM
I don't see why one would want to try any other manor.
It's just not how it's supposed to work otherwise.

2009-11-08, 03:05 PM
Cleo walks in, carrying a banjo. She wonders who all these people are.

2009-11-08, 03:06 PM
A couple of my characters glance at Cleo.
Isaac looks at her.
A banjo?

2009-11-08, 03:13 PM
Yeah. Is that for the wrong time period? Should I have a lute, or a lyre, or a harp, or a guitar or something? Not that she can play any of them very well.

2009-11-08, 03:14 PM
I wouldn't say time period really matters I was just wondering.

2009-11-08, 03:20 PM
Maybe a ukulele? I guess it doesn't. She sits down and taps at the strings.

2009-11-08, 03:21 PM
He shrugs.
I have no clue what you are talking about.

2009-11-08, 03:23 PM
Some instruments fit some places better than others. Anyway, what brings you here?

2009-11-08, 03:28 PM
Running away from a persecuting society due to some scientist's sick fantasy and love for breaking the natural order.
He seems to have one red eye and his other his blue.

2009-11-08, 03:29 PM
Oh. Well, this is one of the more accepting places you'll find. Good luck here.

She starts actually playing the banjo, and deadtimes.

2009-11-08, 03:30 PM
Thankfully that has been the case so far.

A young woman walks into the DFI, wearing a white dress with a red ribbon tied at the back. She has long blond hair that is topped with a wide red witch's hat. She's carrying a long staff with a bell on the end of it. At her waist hangs a zippered bag. She has an enormous smile on her face as she looks around the DFI.

2009-11-08, 07:16 PM
A silver-haired, yellow-eyed young woman (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7210358&postcount=203) looks at her; the corner of her mouth twitches.

2009-11-08, 07:18 PM

Alysha is at the bar with a glass of lemonade, giant smile on her face as always. She gives a big wave to the woman who just walked in.

Zaydon is at a table, playing with Opie, the most awesome blue ferret ever.

Peter is off to the side, quietly sipping his drink and looking around.

2009-11-08, 07:20 PM
All my characters are here in their usual spots.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 07:24 PM
The woman turns her head to face Alysha, a jingle is heard from her boots, hat, staff... Fine, she has a lot of bells. "Hi!" She says, smiling, marching confidently towards the bar.

Abigale sits down next to Peter. She looks 6 months pregnant. She is 6 months pregnant, which would explain why she looks that way. She gives him a kiss on the cheek.

2009-11-08, 07:24 PM
Cleo waves to the silver-haired person. What's up now, girl?

Nel is here, "just chilling"

2009-11-08, 07:27 PM
Allie, for that is her name, which is her name, and also her name, looks back at Cle.
... I'm not dead.
I guess that's a good thing.

2009-11-08, 07:27 PM
Ooo...I like the bells. Alysha holds out her hand. I'm Alysha. Nice too meet you.

Peter smiles and returns the kiss. Abigale might notice that he looks more tired than when she first met him. Probably due to the last time his backpack went haywire.

2009-11-08, 07:28 PM
It is. It's a wonderful thing. You just looked more upset than usual.

2009-11-08, 07:29 PM
I'm fine. She says it a little too quickly.

2009-11-08, 07:31 PM
You sure about that? Don't especially sound it.

((Dinner? Already? :smallsigh: Deadtime for now.))

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 07:33 PM
"Lea." She says, shaking Alysha's hand. The bells fastened to her sleeve jingle. "And thanks. They help ward off evil spirits." She says with a nod. "And they're sorta fun."

"You okay?" Abigale asks Peter, putting a hand on his shoulder. "Been getting enough sleep?"

2009-11-08, 07:34 PM
Allie's mouth twitches again. She looks over at Lea.

2009-11-08, 07:37 PM
What kinda evil spirits? Alysha seems whole-heartedly interested in the bells.

Huh? Oh...yeah...I guess that last outburst really did a number on me. Huh...what do you know...his speech is back to normal.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 07:41 PM
"You know. Ghosts, demons, punk-rockers." Lea says, touching the end of her staff to the floor. It just scares them away.

Abigale shivers, remembering. "Want something to drink? Maybe some warm milk to help you sleep?" She offers to Peter.

2009-11-08, 07:41 PM
Are you sure about that?
Isaac ask's Beans's character.

Jack is next to Alysha listening.

2009-11-08, 07:42 PM
I said I'm fine.
Mouth twitches again.

2009-11-08, 07:46 PM
Ok, suit yourself then.

2009-11-08, 07:46 PM
Alysha giggles a little at the last part. Aw, they're not all bad.

Peter smiles. Thanks, but I'm sleeping fine. Just need a quiet life I guess. He smirks a little.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 07:49 PM
Lea nods, her hat almost falling over her eyes. "Yeah, but you can never be too careful. You'll never know when there's a punk rocker around the corner.


Unless you hear punk rock." She says contemplatively, putting a hand on her chin.

"We could look for a new house in the suburbs." It's a town, so it has to have suburbs, right? "Settle down and everything."

She blinks.

"Lord Asmodeus I sound old..."

2009-11-08, 07:52 PM
Alysha giggles again. Yeah, I guess you're right.

Peter chuckles a little. Aw, you're not old. Not yet, anyway.

2009-11-08, 07:53 PM
Allie runs a finger over the scar that courses by her right eye.

2009-11-08, 07:56 PM
You should tell somebody or hide that you're upset, girl. The 1st, the better, but it's up to you. She wonders how Allie got the scar.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 07:59 PM
"MmmHmm... Oh!" Lea reaches into the zipper pouch at her side, and quickly puts a ridiculous-looking jester's hat on Alysha's head. "There. Now you're safe too." She says, putting her hands on her hips with pride.

"Talking about settling down in a quiet neighborhood? Totally an old thing."

2009-11-08, 07:59 PM
You want me to tell somebody?
I'll tell somebody. She snaps in reply.
I'm still torn up that my mother was murdered by godsforsaken monotheists, I'm still angry about it, and I'm still having nightm--- Her tirade cuts off. She realizes she's said too much.
Her cheeks redden.

2009-11-08, 08:02 PM
Alysha giggles, and her smile somehow gets bigger. She turns to Jack. What d'ya think?

Peter chuckles again and shakes his head a little. Not until you starts talking about finding a neighborhood with weekly bridge games.

2009-11-08, 08:03 PM
Cleo shudders.
How did they manage that? Does no one believe in her anymore?
She shakes her head.
So you're having nightmares. That's understandable. I don't know why you wouldn't.

2009-11-08, 08:04 PM
I don't know how they did it. They just came and made her die.
She never hurt anybody.

2009-11-08, 08:05 PM
Hearing that first part Beans's character said Isaac just looks down and away trying to make it look like he didn't hear.

Jack laughs.
You look halarious.

2009-11-08, 08:06 PM
It must have been their god itself.
I'm sorry. I'm sure she didn't.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:08 PM
"Ridiculous?" Lea says, tapping one of the bells on Alysha's hat. "She looks safe is what she looks like!" She proclaims proudly.

"Mmm. And a place where those darn kids will stay off my lawn."

2009-11-08, 08:08 PM
I hear so much talk about how their God is patient, God is kind, God loves us, God came and died for us.
If their God was so great, my mother would have been avenged before I had to do it. Or she'd still be alive, not erased from existence.

2009-11-08, 08:11 PM
Alysha giggles again. I love it. Thanks!

Which reminds me, we're almost out of prune juice.

2009-11-08, 08:13 PM
They say those things because they want them to be true.
The mass of them believe what they say, but the people at the top just want power, and don't care about hurting people.
So she assumes. Polytheists have gone as wrong in her land.

2009-11-08, 08:14 PM
Unlike me.
I care quite a lot about hurting people.

2009-11-08, 08:15 PM
Jack shrugs.
I guess?

2009-11-08, 08:15 PM
Well, some people deserve to be hurt.
But hurting them isn't going to help you.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:17 PM
Alysha giggles again. I love it. Thanks!

Which reminds me, we're almost out of prune juice.

Lea smiles. "No problem! As a priestess it's my job to make sure everyone's safe!" Lea grins, handing Jack a pair of Christmas Elf-like shoes with bells on them.

"Oh fiddlesticks.
Do old people say fiddlesticks? Or did I make that up?"

2009-11-08, 08:18 PM
No... but it makes me feel better for a short while.
She looks sullenly at the happy, cheerful Lea.

2009-11-08, 08:19 PM
Ummm I don't know...
He says holding the shoes.

2009-11-08, 08:19 PM
Alysha looks from the shoes to Jack. Then she bursts out laughing. And falls off the stool and onto the floor.

Peter thinks for a moment. I think so. My memory is not what it used to be.

2009-11-08, 08:20 PM
Yeah, it can do that.
Cleo follows her look.
Don't begrudge her being happy.

2009-11-08, 08:21 PM
Allie ignores Cle, staring sullenly, jealously at Lea.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:22 PM
Lea leans in close, glaring at Jack. A shadow falls over her face.

"Do you want to be torn apart by horrible spectres tonight?" She asks grimly.

Abigale pauses. "... Now that is an old thing to say." Meanwhile any old couple in this establishment is likely glaring at Abigale and Peter and their youthful satire. Darn kids these days.

2009-11-08, 08:23 PM
Jack gives Alysha a funny look.
Then looks back,
he responds in a sheepish voice.

2009-11-08, 08:25 PM
1st lesson: things go on. Always.

Cleo goes back to banjoing.

2009-11-08, 08:27 PM
Aw, don't be so serious, Lea. Alysha says from the floor. She stopped laughing, but she's still laying on the floor.

Peter chuckles. Yeah, I know.

2009-11-08, 08:28 PM
That doesn't mean they get better.

2009-11-08, 08:30 PM
So make them better, or get them made better, but you don't seem the type to rely on other people.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:30 PM
Lea pats him on the back. "Good. Then put them on." She said with a sudden smile.

Abigale sighs happily, leaning against Peter. "Have you thought of any good names yet?" She asks, putting a hand on her stomach.

2009-11-08, 08:30 PM
Allie makes a noncommittal noise and keeps staaaaaaaaaaaaaaring.

2009-11-08, 08:32 PM
Cleo sighs. Like anyone can. she says, to herself.

2009-11-08, 08:36 PM
Jack quietly puts on te shoes.
I feel silly.

2009-11-08, 08:36 PM
Alysha starts giggling again.

No, not yet. You?

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:38 PM
Lea gives a thumbs up to Jack. "Not at all!" She then notices the person staring at her, and gives a small wave.

"Well I did have Beryl and Garnet suggested. Not sure if I like the second..."

2009-11-08, 08:39 PM
Allie forces herself to wave back. It's a shaky wave, and the corner of her mouth twitches madly.

2009-11-08, 08:39 PM
So...who haven't I played in a while...?

Sir C'lum (dead!!!)

Oh, okay.
Marie, Will's younger, devious sister.

Marie walks into the DFI, looking around.

2009-11-08, 08:41 PM
Alysha can't stop giggling.

Garnet...I think I like that one...

((Do they know if it's a boy or girl yet?))

2009-11-08, 08:45 PM
Jack sighs a chuckles a little bit.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:46 PM
((Nope. The tail's always been in the way during the ultrasounds. :smalltongue:))

"I suppose. It does sound more boyish for sure though..."

Lea waves goodbye to Alysha and Jack (leaving them to laugh at each other), and walks towards Allie. Hi. You okay? Lea asks, jingling as she sits down.

2009-11-08, 08:48 PM
Yeah. Sure.
Lie, lie, lie.

2009-11-08, 08:50 PM
I need to get a picture of you with those on. Alysha says, still giggling a little. Her hat jingles as she giggles.

Maybe Aquamarine if it's a girl?

Je dit Viola
2009-11-08, 08:51 PM
Marie sits down at somewhere and orders a drink, playing with little illusionary soldiers on her table.

2009-11-08, 08:54 PM
Maybe I need a picture if you like that too.
He counters.
His feet jingling a bit.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 08:55 PM
"I suppose. But Aquamarine is a shade of blue." Abigale puts a few papers on the table, all of them charts. "And our child's chance of having blue eyes, hair, skin, etc. is less than 1%." Punnett Squares.

"You don't sound okay..." Lea says, thinking for a moment. Which is more than Lea ever thinks about anything for. "Oh, I know." Lea takes an adorable kitten out of the zippered bag, with a bell on its collar, placing it next to Allie. "There." She says, grinning proudly. Something to cheer her up and make bell noises.

2009-11-08, 08:57 PM
Wow! Allie must really like it, seeing as she breaks into tears.
... Wait, no, that's bad.

2009-11-08, 09:00 PM
Oh! Yeah, that'd be great! Jack's counter failed.

Peter raises an eyebrow at the charts. Well, ok...but, it sounds pretty.

Shades of Gray
2009-11-08, 09:03 PM
Lea blinks, stuffing the kitty back into the pouch with a meow.

"Must be allergic to cats..."Lea mutters. She puts a hand on Allie's back. "Umm... Are you okay now?" She asks.

Abigale pauses, putting the charts away. "Yeah... I guess..." She says, slightly embarrassed. "We could name him or her after a relative... Got any names?"

2009-11-08, 09:04 PM
Oh dear...
Isaac says watching but tries to look away.

Jack frowns a bit.
It's pretty hard to beat you isn't it?

2009-11-08, 09:05 PM
More crying.

2009-11-08, 09:07 PM
Alysha smiles and nods.

Well, my parents were John and Linda. I had an Aunt Gertrude.

He thinks for some reason.

2009-11-08, 09:08 PM

2009-11-08, 09:39 PM
Riace is here, sitting at a booth with his eyes closed.

Cleo is looking at Alysha's hat, wondering why it's there.

2009-11-08, 09:41 PM
Alysha sees Cleo. And smiles and waves.

2009-11-08, 09:44 PM
Cleo smiles and waves back. Hey Alysha. What's with the hat?

2009-11-08, 09:49 PM
Lea gave it to me. She says the bells are supposed to keep evil things away or something. I just think it's funny.

2009-11-08, 09:53 PM
Maybe they do, but I've got to agree it's a funny hat.
Cleo does not have her usual hat.
Who's Lea?

2009-11-08, 09:55 PM
She was in here earlier. She had bells all over her. She's funny.

2009-11-08, 09:57 PM
Huh. Maybe even she doesn't believe the warding off evil thing, an' she thinks the bells are funny herself.

Violet just happens to be here. What a coincidence.

She's just sitting down, doing nothing.

I think she thinks both. She gave Jack some bell shoes. She giggles a little. They're funny.

2009-11-08, 10:07 PM
Cleo laughs a bit, imagining that. Where does she get them all?

2009-11-08, 10:11 PM
Now that Mee finally has free time, Luminar is back. (Yay for free time!)

As is Rachel.
They're both sipping at drinks.
Should anyone wish to RP with either of them.

2009-11-08, 10:12 PM
Alyhsha shrugs. Maybe she makes them?

Zaydon sees Luminar. And waves at him. Hey! Been a while!

2009-11-08, 10:15 PM
Maybe. Cleo nods. How have you been, other than the hat?

I'm sure there's not a little coppery dragon stealing Cleo's banjo. Why would one be here?

"Too long.
How have you been?"
Luminar asks, waving back.

2009-11-08, 10:21 PM
Great! You?

Good, good. You?

2009-11-08, 10:25 PM
I've been really great. Everything has been going well for me.

The little dragon has gone and is trying to hide behind Rachel.

2009-11-08, 10:25 PM
Good, good. You?

"Not bad.

So, what have you been doing?"
Luminar asks, ordering himself a drink.

The little dragon has gone and is trying to hide behind Rachel.

This the little dragon can do.
Rachel just looks at it, curious.

2009-11-08, 10:27 PM
Well that's great.

Not a whole lot. You?

2009-11-08, 10:30 PM
Not a whole lot. You?

"About the same, honestly.
It's been pretty quiet around here."
He says, shrugging.

2009-11-08, 10:32 PM
Yeah. This place is pretty great, huh? Happy, even for her.

It's Merhin again, if Rachel met her. I think she did.
Hello. Why are you here?

2009-11-08, 10:36 PM
Alysha nods. Yep. I love it here.

Well, that's good. Around here, busy is bad.

2009-11-08, 10:38 PM
Well, that's good. Around here, busy is bad.

"Yup, I know."
Luminar says, nodding.

It's Merhin again, if Rachel met her. I think she did.
Hello. Why are you here?

"Oh yes, you, Merlin.
And it's because I'm not over there.

What about you?"

2009-11-08, 10:40 PM
Anything happened with the hearts of the people here?

Yes. You're still Rachel, right?
I was fixing Van's lightning machine. She got left here, you know.
She looks down at the banjo, just realizing you need fingers to play it.

2009-11-08, 10:41 PM
Yes. You're still Rachel, right?
I was fixing Van's lightning machine. She got left here, you know.
She looks down at the banjo, just realizing you need fingers to play it.

"Yes I am.

Who's Van?"
Rachel asks, raising an eyebrow.

2009-11-08, 10:46 PM
Riki's sister, like you're mine. The fast one.
She sneaks over to return the banjo, since Mee's deadtimed.

2009-11-08, 10:46 PM
Not that I can tell. Maybe the ship just thought I needed time off. She shrugs a little.

Opie gives a squeak of hello to Luminar.

2009-11-08, 10:55 PM
You should just try to enjoy it then.

2009-11-08, 10:57 PM
Oh, I am. Then again, I enjoy most stuff.

2009-11-08, 11:00 PM
Alright. What have you been doing for your vacation?

2009-11-08, 11:02 PM
Meeting people, getting funny hats.

Nice people, I hope. Oh, and have you seen my hat anywhere?

2009-11-08, 11:05 PM
She shakes her head. Nope, sorry. Where was the last place you remember seeing it?

2009-11-08, 11:09 PM
In the woods, by the pond there. I'll find it eventually.

There is a flash of lightening and the door bursts open. It is all very dramatic. A purple dwarf wearing a big black cloak and holding a hammer twice the size of him walks in.
"Hullo! I am Bobeth"

Eldena teleports into the inn and takes a seat at the bar. She pulls out a scroll and starts to study it.

Eidena will find a woman looking over her shoulder at the scroll. She has long blonde hair, and is wearing a white witch's hat, as well as long white robes. Bells are fastened to her hat and robes at numerous places. She has a huge smile on her face.

Eldena rolls up the scroll and looks back.
Ummm... hello?
She says as more of a question than a greeting.

"Oh, hi." The woman says, extending her hand for a handshake. "Name's Lea. It's a pleasure to meat you."

Eldena sighs and goes back to reading the scroll as Lea deadtimes.
