    "I-" Ashley sighs and slumps again. She supposed that technically, the centaur was right. "I'm sorry. Shouldn't assume. It's just- my place doesn't feel much like a home lately. I don't really want to get into why."

    Willa shrugs.
    ”Don't apologize. Everyone says dumb things when they’re pissed. I’d help if you want. Maybe we can help you get your mind off of things?” she proposes.

    "That's what this is for." Ashley wiggles the mug of beer, that she's barely drank out of. "Unless you've got something better than drinking."

    Willa snorts, in a very horsey sort of way.
    ”Oh come on, anything’s better than that.” her emphasis on the phrase causes her to backpedal at Mist giving her looks.
    ”I just don’t drink at all, okay? Alcohol tastes nasty. Come on, we can go somewhere, talk about magic things. I bet you’ve never taken a ride on a centaur before.” she says, though really riding a normal horse is probably more comfortable for most people.

    Ashley hesitates for a moment. "No, can't say I've ever ridden a centaur." Then she snickers, like a very mature adult.

    "I'm kind of curious to see how someone dances at a spirit. I've never seen one appreciate performance."

    Trying to find this monster, cheat the challenges, and scoop the valuable something that will probably just turn out to be a worthless family heirloom? No thanks. She could offer help, but Comet doesn't seem to want any.
    "The things I craft, heh, nothing like what you've got in that book." She pinches the air in front of her, grasping a bit of light from the fireplace. A little bit of folding and twisting, and there's a monarch butterfly standing in her open palm, fluttering its wings. Or something that looks very like one, at least.
    (Comet finds it incredibly annoying, when her feelings are so clearly displayed. Maybe she should invest in some dark sunglasses?)

    'Thanks.' says Comet, 'Oooh! Now that is cool. What's the biggest, or most complicated thing you've crafted in that way?' And Bam! Eyes back to curious yellow!

    Comet looks at Anchor intently, hoping for a further display of her talent.

    Willa returns the snicker but doesn't comment.
    "Well, mostly I dance to make them show up, and then you have to make a deal with someone. Give you something for something, tell them to go possess someone until they can raise their belt size or something." having a spirit possess someone and push them to self-destructive behavior is something she's found in text but never actually tried.

Willa jokingly waves her hands where a human might keep their pockets, where she conspicuously does not have a wallet.

    Lynton tilts his head to the side.
    "Settling down. Now there's a thought."
    He's obviously trying to keep his manners and not pry to hard into things Naku may not want to discuss.
    "What an adventurous life you lead. Are you sure it's safe announcing such things like that though?"
    He asks, a look of genuine concern on his face.

    Willa smiles.
    "Well, maybe you can give me some tips sometime and I can show you how we dance." she suggests, sitting down so that she's at eye level with Ashley. It's rude to make people stare up at her even if it means dragging her knees on the wooden floor.

    "A private dance, just for me?" Ashley regrets the words as soon as they leave her mouth. "Ugh, sorry. I'm not thinking great right now. Yeah, I guess if you really want, I can show you a few things about my style of wizardry."

    Anastasia, the black furred fox woman, starts to dance, stomping her feet in time with the music, the bells around her ankles jangling with each step. She spins and twirls, sending the gauzy material of her dancer's outfit swirling.

    "Um, yeah, right. If you need a lot of space, then my warehouse won't do. Too much stuff. There a field of something nearby?"

    "You've been outside, right? There's pretty much a field everywhere that isn't forest." Willa says with a smirk, hoping to get past Ashley's little outburst. Had she actually been interested? How does she only find people not turned off by the horse thing after she meets Corvus?

    Ashley rolls her eyes. "Yeah, I know that. I just meant right near here. That was it'll be easier for me to anchor myself in the spirit world if you decide you really want to go." With some effort, Ashley manages to slump herself off of the barstool.

    With Comet not saying much, Anchor turns to watch the performance.
    An actual dancing fox. Imagine that.
    She hadn't thought the song was anything much, but hearing it with its words, that's completely different.
    Either way, it doesn't compare to Anastasia's dance.

    Comet seems a little embarrassed not to have the finished piece yet. Nonetheless, the carving on the key is very impressive.

    Naku shrugs slightly. She's definitely not offended by Oliver's point, and even smiles slightly.
    "I suppose in a way I'm not being fully straightforward. I haven't lied to you, though. I do want to just settle down, and in several senses of the term, I am a no one. My race is dead, other than just me.
    I lived most of my life fighting for the right to survive, and a lot of it is very painful memories. I've kind of avoiding it because I'm just here to drink some drinks and relax a bit. However, if you want to know, then sure.

    Recently, a goddess offered me a plot of land in her realm in exchange for my services, so it's my first job for her that I'm here celebrating."
    Naku replies very calmly, sipping at her cup of tea.

    Not able to resist the temptation to show off her own talent, Comet pulls from her backpack what looks to be a three inch long bronze ornamental key. It looks to be a plain at first, but when Comet flips it over, an intricate carved design is revealed. 'This is the first of the four objects, that I have to create. It isn't finished yet.'
    Comet seems a little embarrassed not to have the finished piece yet. Nonetheless, the carving on the key is very impressive.
    "A whole tower." Anchor confirms, pleased with herself.

    She glances back, her eyes catching on the key. "About half done? I mean, the carvings are going to cover the whole thing, right? It's amazing." She reaches out a hand towards the key, but doesn't actually go to touch it. An incomplete magical item - it could do anything! Probably nothing, yes. But anything!
    "So much detail, it looks really...deep."

    Her shadow remains focused on the dance.
