    "Oh." Destruction of realms is the kind of thing where Harley finds it hard to say anything about. Should she say 'I'm sorry'? But that's not the sort of thing you apologize for, for various reasons. Joking to lighten the mood? Probably not appropriate either. 'Oh yeah, well one time I...' no, one-upping someone about destroying personal things isn't a very nice thing to say.

    She sets down her fork, so she can talk without accidentally chewing at the same time.

    She finds a way to tie in talking about herself: "I've been kind-of lost for a while, spinning my wheels without going anywhere. Not really fun, because I've just been avoiding most everything. Just seeing what happens and rolling with it sounds like a much better plan."

    “A very relatable feeling.”

    Mike nods, turning to face Harley. He hasn’t been facing her because he’s being rude, he’s just not always the brightest when it comes to manners.

    “Prior to wheel spinning, what drove you. If I might inquire.”

    Harley shrugs.

    "I just was in charge of things, always had things to worry about, and things to do." Tends to happen, when you're in charge of a group like AMEN. Now, however, that she isn't, there isn't really as much pressing things going on. "Now, though...not really in the action anymore, y'know? Things don't really just happen anymore, I have to go out looking for them."

    Saying it out loud, she realizes it's a really dumb and selfish problem to have.

    Mike casts a quick glance around, nodding.

    "Time has changed the place, that's for sure. Used to be one...maybe three apocalyptic events going at a time back in the day."

    He gives a brief sigh, recalling past events. But then with a small smile he looks back to Harley,

    "So what particular things do you look for?"

    "There's still a couple things going on at a time," Harley adds, "but they're, like, city-wide at most now. Like, there's a plague of rats going on over in the other city and demons showing up in random places and a weird mental disease going around some places but that's about it."

    Now it's Harley's time to be rude and not look at her conversation partner. With her fork, she plays around with the food on her plate.

    "Mostly just been doing small-time investigations and following up on big events that happen. Usually leads to dead-ends, so there's that." She grabs her notebook from a pocket and tosses it on the bar. "My whole quest-log is full of dead-ends." That's what she calls the notebook.

    Mike closes his eyes with a smirk, memories playing back in his head.

    "Demons never really do learn."

    He opens his eyes again, and glances to the notebook, "Anything you might want a second pair of eyes on?"

    "Hmm..." Harley thinks through the things she has written in it. In fact, she grabs the notebook and starts flipping through it, trying to be careful to not let Mike actually read it because there's some pretty personal things written in places.

    "Let's see...where I've gotten stuck on. The rats seem like it'll be resolved soon," she says to herself, referring to the rat-plot that that's going on in Riverside. "Skinwalkers resolved themselves, no idea how that happened...there's a bunch of mimics? But it's pretty minor." They're in HALO. "Robots? No...cultists?"

    "Oh! Here." Harley flips open to a particular page and sets the notebook down on the table, pointing at it. It's written in some Romance language, probably Portuguese. "So, some time ago, there were a bunch of fairies and...angels? Not really sure what exactly they are, but I have written down...'empower' or 'on fire' or something like that here. They were messing up reality and having some sort of gang warfare or something like that," she says, poorly summarizing what was going on. "I didn't make much progress interviewing people or finding out what exactly was going on because everything else seemed more important at the time, but I suspect they might be building up to something." Rebonack was running those plots but put them on pause because there were a lot of other plots going on at the time. "It'd be helpful if you could look into that."

    Cosmo scowls at the insinuation leveled his way and 'humph's his way to the background.
    If Zee insists on being the bartender in charge around here, she can do the socializing with the guy.

    He's such a personable fellow, Cosmo.

    ****

    "Sure! Baubles sounds right."
    And Karaglen definitely doesn't give Navvy a look when he mentions that broken one.

    The reprimanding tone of it is a little muted by her glitter scarf and oh-so-sparkly appearance. She thinks she looks pretty awesome, but it is certainly possible that she is also more than a bit silly looking.

    "But the important part is the little hooks and things that should be in there. Gonna use them to help hang up some other things!"
    Which then brings them back towards the Trog's main level, where Karaglen will quickly skitter towards a table away from Zee's Spooktober decoration boxes. It wouldn't do to mingle the two holiday decorations, after all. That would undoubtedly cause all sorts of confusing celebratory problems later.

    Her box will be deposited up on the table and (after helping Navvy get his up there, if he needs the assistance) will probably snap back to her more natural draconic form.
    "Okay! So! I'm going to go get my Top Secret Special Box while you go find that bauble box. Then we can start putting some of this stuff up. I have a pretty idea that I think Mom will enjoy and maybe we can do it in other places too."

    Navvy is telling the truth!

    He TOTALLY didn't break it!

    They're so delicate and made of glass they just get broken sometimes, you know?

    Completely normal.

    Unlike wearing a garland and getting glitter all over yourself. That's less normal.

    Regardless, Navvy follows his sis and hefts the box of string-lights off his back and onto a table. He looks a little puzzled, though. "Shouldn't we put this stuff up first before we get anything else down, though?"

    Hmm.

    That would be a very orderly way to do things.

    After all, they grabbed two boxes of long, drape-y things. It's important to first drape things everywhere, then you hang the hangy things off them! That's just decorating basics, is what that is.

    "Are you sure it's a good idea to take the hooks out of the baubles? Can't we just get extra ones from somewhere else?" Navvy inquires. Surely there must be a Thanksmas store that sells bauble hooks, right? "I got tipped a whole gold piece by a guy for bringing him a plate of brownies yesterday. We could spend that on new hooks instead of taking the extra ones out of the baubles."

    And while this conversation is going on?

    The tavern is treated to the sight of a pair of metallic wyrmlings discussing proper Thanksmas decorating etiquette. It's dinner and a show!
