    Clarecky! Rad! Couples being recognized by portmanteau names is cool, but I never ever remember that portmanteau names exist unless someone else brings them up. >.<

    Emily could break free of Lust's choke-hold on her mind anytime now! Lust doesn't have the willpower to spend keeping Emily in check so if she can awaken from her dreamlike state she should awaken from her dreamlike state.

    Clarissa never intended to stick around long enough for security to stop by. She's trying to spur an investigation into Mister Starling's something and everything. Trying and failing. The key here would be to irritate Brian, but he's not human and is physically incapable of being provoked. No human could resist and tolerate everything he's resisted and tolerated. There must be a Vulcan somewhere in his family tree! And Lust doesn't have the willpower to deny herself temptation much longer. Therefore, Lust must withdraw hence Clarissa must withdraw.

    Clarissa slyly mouths a line to Becky,

    "Get the teenage boy's phone!"

    This peaceful protest of Starling's practices didn't work. It didn't do anything to the benefit of the nonhumans!

    But maybe this will...

    Boom! Clarissa attempts to take a step toward Brian and swiftly knee him in an area that should hurt him very, very much. Clarissa doesn't like losing to human supremacists, but she can rejoice in the mini-victories she's racked up and her new silk top hat!

    Becky winks at Clarissa, nods, and turns, sauntering her way over to Mr. No Doubt Still Drooling And Oogling Intensely.
    "Sorry for the mess, dear, but could I borrow your phone for a moment, please?" she purrs, letting a hand drift across his shoulder as she reaches for the device!

    It could have been Berissa.

    "S-sure, ma'am," the teenage boy says, and holds it out.

    But since the Lust aura is gone, Emily comes to her senses. "Don't do it, Scott!"

    That reminds Scott that his phone has some video footage on it that he'd really rather keep, and he changes his mind. "No, wait. I need my phone!"

    Becky can still try to grab it from him forcibly if she chooses.

    Meanwhile, Starling is still on the line with Remnant. One can imagine they'll be arriving in a post or two.

    I signed up for an engineering camp a year or two ago. Two of the councilors there were dating, and we ended up nicknaming them Bearon.

    Oh gosh!

    Starling isn't human! I repeat! Starling isn't human! He's...something else entirely! He sympathizes with humans but...if kneeing him has no effect. If he is immune to the kneeing...

    Retreat anyway! His staff members are certifiable! Retreat! Retreat! Run away!

    Berissa could do with a distraction or mass pandemonium while they warp out to cover their expeditious exit! Clarissa visually sweeps the ceiling for any fire alarms or, if karma loathes Brian, a sprinkler system! If one is present in the building, she'll attempt to trigger it with a stream of blue flame and a piece of wooden furniture or a flammable decoration (if one is to be had). Setting off any sprinklers might also help wash away any physical link between Clarissa and Becky and the crime scene! Maybe...

    Hurry, Berissa! You girls have gotta jet before the Starling-monster noms your individuality and chaotic alignment!

    Oh crap. I knew I was forgetting something!

    Starling gets kneed and goes down, losing his grip on Emily and groaning.

    Emily steps protectively in front of her boss, in a stance that suggests she's had martial arts training. "Get lost, you **** ****s!"

    It's a restaurant with gas stoves and such, so fire alarms and sprinklers are a must. The alarms blare and the sprinklers go off. Brian continues to groan. Emily continues to stand guard. And Scott decides to panic and run for the back, with his phone.

    Yep! Clarissa's main objective has switched from tormenting Brian to stealing Scott's phone to something that involves Lust and Becky. There's a delay of forty seconds or so while she motionlessly stands in her place before she decides to try to catch up to Becky.

    And the fire alarms go off!
    And the fire sprinklers go off!
    And, thus, is everyone present soaked!

    It's likely a good thing that Becky's outfit wasn't white. Although no doubt Clarissa may not agree with that assessment!

    As it is, though, she does start to pursue Scott, before slipping on the suddenly wet floor and going down on her front!

    Ouch!

    Granted, this does provide a fine view of her rear for Clarissa (and anyone else present) to admire as she pauses to catch her wits...

    The doors of this building are wide open again. The robot patrolling the place have lined up so everyone going in is lead to the main building, which is similar to a normal church. The only difference is that the building is made of iron and other metal instead of stone.

    Laneside Bowling

    Brand, Lily, and Tito arrive at Laneside bowling, the two children pulling a little handcart full of cleaning supplies.

    "Justin! We got to ride on the Riftline! I love riding on the Riftline! It's so super fast that it's like flying!" Lily announces happily, as soon as she sees him.

    Even the normally quiet Tito seems in high spirits. "Whooosh!" he says. "Just like that! It looked like we were standing still and the rest of the world whooshing by!"

    "Excellent!" Starling says, and you can almost imagine his fingers steepling together in the Mr Burns pose. "What I would like to see published is comparative studies between the races to show empirical proof of human superiority - but it must be impeccably researched. None must be able to accuse us of fraud. I have lab space here in the city, and I have people who are able to gain... unwanted corpses. Is this something you can work with?"

    Neither Emily nor Starling are interested in Becky's rear, and Scott is long gone. Actually, that's not entirely true. Emily would love to go and kick Becky's rear, but that would mean no one was protecting Mr Starling. Besides being her employer, her mother's friend, and the leader of the humanist movement, he's now the Mr Starling who just saved her from being kidnapped and raped by a disgusting succubus. So Emily isn't going to leave him to Clarissa's mercies.

    She takes the phone from Starling's hand and speaks into it. "Remnant? Are you still on the line? Can you hurry? They've attacked Mr Starling and started a fire."

    Opening the door Justin is more than happy to be greeted by the Halfling children. "Hey guys. Yeah, I thought the Riftline was incredible the first time I had to use it."

    The kids abandon the handcart and race inside. Then stop and stare around at the glories of the bowling alley.

    Kids love giant indoor spaces as well.

    "You have the best... house... EVER!" Tito finally says.

    Brand comes in a moment later, bringing the supplies. "You weren't kidding when you said it was big."

    She's had a joy attack!

    "I have a good eye for real estate, what else can I say?" he tells Brand. "Wonder how these two would react if the machines were running. Or if there were actual arcade machines." He should buy a skeeball machine. Way more accessible for his halfling friends than straight up bowling. "Lemme help with those," He says while trying to pick up a few supplies.

    Laneside Bowling

    The cart has halfling sized mops and brooms, loads of cleaning rags, buckets and general purpose cleaning solution, and so on. Nothing too high tech, but plenty of supplies to get the job done.

    "Where do you want to start?"
    Brand asks.

    Meanwhile, Lily slips off her shoes and takes a run at one of the lanes before making a sudden stop so that she continues to slide along in sock feet. This stirs up a load of dust, but she doesn't seem to mind.

    Tito runs over to a rack of bowling balls and goes to pick one up, fully expecting them to be as lightweight as the balls to which he is accustomed. Needless to say, the ball doesn't budge. He tries harder and manages to pick it up, but soon drops it with a THUD!

    Luckily no toes were in the way!

    [Sitar's Strings - Roberts]

    Roberts rubs his chin thoughtfully for a moment, considering the proposal.

    An interesting one, to be sure, but he looks a little uncertain.

    "It's something I can work with, for sure. I do have a couple of concerns though. The first is a minor one, but worth mentioning. Namely that regardless of how legitimate the research is, and you can be sure I would ensure my work is done as thoroughly as possible, there will be accusations of fraud. While anything strictly above the law would prove fruitless, some people might go beyond that. I highly doubt they'd succeed, but it is something that could delay things quite substantially. My second concern is more serious, and one that may raise more problems with any published results. Superiority is a rather vague term. Whatever standards we use to determine superiority could be challenged quite easily. It could cause an almost endless debate, require constant repeat tests with different standards. Other people might try to do the same thing to prove us wrong."

    Roberts shakes his head, "What I'm saying in a nutshell, Mr Starling, is that this is something that could take decades. Claims that the results are a fraud will at most delay things, but serious scientific opposition could drag it out for a long time. If you want the results to be accepted quickly, you're going to have to find a way to silence anyone capable of doing that."
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Wait, so either I get burned alive, or I have to run away like a scaredy cat? That's not very fair. Hold, on. I need to think this one over for a moment.

    She ponders it hard.

    Run away.... or burned alive.... Burned alive.... or run away....

    She hold her hands out, mimicking weighing the two options.

    Um....

    ....

    Latalla, I don't see how this is that hard of a -

    Hold on! Give me a minute, okay? Hrm..... Hrrrrrmmmmmmm..... Burned alive would hurt a lot. And kill me. But running away is just pathetic.... Gosh....

    Latalla....

    But if I ran away, I could light myself on fire later...

    Latalla.

    But is the point to burn alive, or just not be a chicken?

    LATALLA!

    GOSH! FINE. I don't know! I mean, both are valid options, bu I kinda want more to choose from. Like, can one of you two get bricked in the building with me? That seems a lot more fair. Or, one of you runs away, one of you gets bricked in, and I light the building on fire. That sounds good too, right? Or how about....

    >.< Just.... just hit her over the head or something...

    Kenas seems to be thinking this over hard.

    Can anyone learn magic? Or do you need a horn?

    Kanes bursts into a fit of giggles at the thought of her brother with a horn.

    Are these people blind to my efforts to warn them against their Fate? Could they really be so ignorant about the deaths of one of their number that they simply don't notice when one is pinned to an alleyway wall? I find nothing in the News about it. Perhaps it was just suppressed? The Magician deserved his cruel Fate, and while I do not take any pleasure in it, my hand was guided by the threads to do what was necessary. Perhaps the Priestess will show more to the masses of...of...cattle that live in this city. I can feel my own String coming nearer and nearer, but with some hope, I might be able to avoid my demise.

    I must get this message out. The Priestess will have to be found publicly.

    "Haha! If you wanted to use unicorn magic you would need a horn," Sigil laughs before pausing to eat some more tasteh veggies. "But over the course of my research I've discovered that unicorn magic is actually quite similar to using psionics with a dorj as a focus."

    A pause.

    "Uuhh... A dorj is a special rod made of crystal that helps to focus your mind. And I believe that anyone can learn to use some form of magic. Even if it's one of the more mundane kinds."

    He gives a rather wide smile. "See, that is my discovery. The idea I've been working on. Any time you Will the world around you to change and it does? That's magic. It's just that many kinds of magic are so common place that people don't think of it as magic. To most magic is only the extra-ordinary or the flashy. But stomping on a see-saw to launch a ball into the air is just as magical as using a wizard's staff to blast it up with a gust of wind."

    Brand asks.

    Meanwhile, Lily slips off her shoes and takes a run at one of the lanes before making a sudden stop so that she continues to slide along in sock feet. This stirs up a load of dust, but she doesn't seem to mind.

    Tito runs over to a rack of bowling balls and goes to pick one up, fully expecting them to be as lightweight as the balls to which he is accustomed. Needless to say, the ball doesn't budge. He tries harder and manages to pick it up, but soon drops it with a THUD!

    Luckily no toes were in the way!

    Justin shrugs. "I don't really know. I figured we would each just clean something then move on to another thing when we were done. I know I'll have to vacuum for the carpets. Other than that, it's all just wiping and dusting and mopping. Especially the bathrooms, but we can save that for-" THUD!

    Justin dashes straight to Tito. He isn't yelling in pain so he's probably fine. Justin hefts the ball back to it's place. "Careful with the balls Tito. You probably guessed, but they're really heavy. I've got lighter ones you can try later," he says. "And Lily. That's not particularly dangerous, but you're going to ruin your socks that way." It would also be a foul in bowling.

    Well, way back Ekkehard tried to gently grip the sides of Latella's head, but I didn't get a reply.

    Instead, Ekkehard rolls his eyes and tries to punch Latella between hers. He's far stronger than he looks. When he was turned from glabrezu into human only his shape changed; his strength did not.

    [Sitar's Strings - Clareckyberissa]

    Oh no! Scott's getting away!

    Clarissa would menacingly hover over Mister Starling and growl "This isn't over!" at him if Becky weren't tempting her so. But with Becky's trip ending as it did...

    A minority of Clarissa, Wrath and Gluttony, craves the termination of Emily using the telephone cord for the purposes of irony! The other five have reached a consensus that they thirst for Scott's phone and Becky. Lust and Pride are the most outspoken sins in this debate. Lust demands Becky at once to surfeit her appetite while Pride calls for the phone so that Clarissa's reputation as top predator should remain intact. They soon compromise and chaos ensues.

    Lust recklessly attempts to bounce across the restaurant, pounce on Becky, and make-out with her! She's trying to channel a month's worth of her brand of magic into Becky as she naturally would. Meanwhile, Pride attempts to blink (warp space culminating in a series of quick teleportation over a short distance) Lust and Becky into the back of the Sitar's Strings!

    This probably won't close the gap between the girls and Scott, but at least Pride gave it a go!

    Zefir sights. He waits for Ekkehard's action to happen. If that doesn't tell her wat to do Zefir will point the weapon at her.

    Well, so far, I haven't really done anything huge. Don't get me wrong, I've helped people out, and I know that means a lot to them. But, compared to some of the heroes back home, I'm kinda low on the scale.

I had just that alchemy here would be at least close to the form I had learned. Apparently not.

    I would be glad for further work, yes. Especially as the 'fortune' he had been paid for his last job was beginning to seem much less than he'd initially thought. I someday intend to open an office, sell spells and charms to the commoners, but until then mercenary work seems a good way to support myself. Better than lowering himself to plebeian toil at least. Learning magic was meant to be a way to avoid such drudgery.
    ((Pardon the delay))

    The swirling solutions would seem thinner than the potions they had been exchanged for. Also a bit darker but that was all that could be told at the moment. "Well, it seems similar enough to me. Maybe the way I do things just draws the necessary elements from a different source or something? Just because things don't appear to work with the same set of rules doesn't automatically mean that they're irreconcilible." the catamander said with a slight impish grin due to her precocious verbage.

    That grin shifted to something that was somehow both more and less devilish once the wizard showed interest in a second job as well. "Awesome! Well then, how does tomorrow at the east gate sound? Nine-ish a good time to start for you?"
