"Mm... I guess we can ask afterwards." Irena suggests as she looks up at the stage, at least Nadia seemed to have made a miraculous recovery from her drunkenness earlier. "Anyway, once this is over you can go with us to riverside okay?"
[Dena & Kirk]
"What? Just tell them if you're so afraid of getting the attention of homosexuals. I would find such attention charming really. You guys are more afraid of these things then you need to be really. Would it be so dangerous to kiss one guy? I kissed plenty of women and I'm still straight." Dena tells Kirk with a shrug.
"And the auction's over! Moff, come on up for your prizes." Tualth says with a sad smile before looking back at the pair. "Sorry about that. I'd have loved to bid on you two myself, but you know how it is." She tells them before attempting to give each of them a peck on the cheek.
After that, she heads back to the podium and pulling a name out of the hat. "Dionysius! Come on up."
I wouldn't call Nadia sober right now. She just hasn't said or done anything that makes it too clear she's drunk for a little bit.
"It's gonna be kind of late after this, don't you think. Maybe she should come over tomorrow or something?"
[Dena & Kirk]
Kirk shakes his head. Silly Dena. "I'm not afraid of anything. It's just that if I'm going to do something I'd really rather not, there's has to be a certain amount of incentive." Apparently seeing Dena make out with a woman is not incentive enough.
In the interest of having more people to bid on the guys, Kevin Sciano finds himself walking in to take a seat at the auction area with 2,000 gold (or a more portable equivalent in precious gems) in his pocket. He's wearing a custom tailored brown suit that looks like this.
"There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
No one has stepped twice into the same river.
But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

"Excuse my milady, I believe that's my que." Dio rises from his table and pleasant conversation to surmount the stage, straightening his suitjacket and smoothing back his hair as he walks. His grace and poise is almost supernatural as he glides across the room and into the cage, allowing himself to be locked in.
"Ladies, gentlemen, and beings of indeterminate gender, good evening to you all. I assure you that, should you place your money in the hands of these fine people in exchange for placing me in your fine hands, there is no act too depraved, insane, or scandalous for me to perform. For the next two days, I shall be yours to control." And with that, and a nod to Tualth, the bidding can officially begin.
Julie, everyone's nth favorite succubus, by Gulaghar. An amazing Misha, Mimi, and Riss painting done by Ofride.
For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.
"1100 gold pieces." Says Lanthil, looking slightly amused at all the attention Dio seems to be getting. At this rate, it seems she will not be spending the rest of the night with her new companion after all.
