Session Ident: #Aeons_Daylight

<Nox_Aegis> <Angela> sighs, making her way around the Theater, a box of photos in her arms. Every once in a while she glances toward the darker corners of the room, shaking her head to herself.

<+Morose> <Aaron> comes downstairs and sits on the bottom step, he smiles as he notices Angela.  “Hey.  How’s it going?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> sets the box to the side and looks over at Aaron. “Well… I don’t smell like fish anymore, that’s a good thing.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> chuckles.  “Definately.  I used so much lemon juice getting that smell out surprised my hair didn’t bleach.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> laughs at that. “A little tartar sauce and you’d be ready to go.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> makes a face.  “Ugh…  I don’t think I can ever eat fish again.”, he stands up and walks over, looking at the box.  “So what’s in the box?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ enters the theater after a day of thuggin’ in the early hours. People want their drugs and weapons, right? He roamed in and would look around for where others were at, this fine day, even as he was munching on some Taco Bell…yeah, it wasn’t real Mexican..but it was cheap and tasty. Shaddap. Stereotypin.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> smirks a little bit. “Well, it’s not fish. It’s some pictures I took and kinda put together. Aura pics and whatnot.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Oh, I wanna see. Does she have the picture of me in there?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> nods his head and then waves to Ramirez when he spots him.  “I sense you are up late, rather than early.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur walks out of his little cubby in the theater and sits down atop a balcony which sits on the right side and looks down at everyone.”Good morning.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “let’s check.” He’d wander over to have a look. “You going to show us the pics? We’re curious.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Hey Arthur. Hey Aaron..and Angela with the funky camera stuff.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Oooooh, that could be awkward. And me without my popcorn.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> glances over to Ramirez and nods her head slightly after looking up at Arthur and waving slightly, a touch of concern on her features. “Uhm, sure. Just some full spectrums I took.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Cool. Can you explain them?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> glances off toward Arthur and waves a little bit, but frowns and turns his attention quickly back to the others and the pictures.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> nods her head and starts taking them out. “Oh, this is the one of Z in cat form. It looks like it has wings still, which is pretty cool.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Who is Z? You mean Zo or whatever?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> rolls his eyes but sighs.  “We may never hear the end of it now…  But maybe you weren’t there for that.  Zir, that thing that follows Arthur around.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ turns and looks at Arthur, scanning around him.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “It’ll never be cooler than me.”

<+MichaelM> Kara makes her way to the theatre, occasionally checking a pocket on the inside of her vest jacket as she does. Upon entering, she seems surprised to see Ramirez and Aaron there. “Oh, hello. Something awry?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> flips through a few more and tilts her head as she looks at one. “This is the ghost I was looking for around here but it’s pretty distorted… I couldn’t get a clear shot for some reason.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> stretches on top of the chandelier and yawns,”What about me? Food?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks over at Kara and smiles, waving a bit.  “No, we were just talking a bit and glad to be rid of the fishy smell.  And uhm, it looks like Arthur is finally awake and about.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur gets down from the balcony and walks down to a chair in front of the stage near the center aisle and sits down.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks up at Zirathur. “Is that a mini-dragon? That’s almost fucking adorable. Does it shoot fire?”

<+MichaelM> “If you’re unlucky, you’ll find out firsthand.” Kara says with a slight smirk, glancing up at Zirathur, then back down at the others. “Where is Nick? I came here to run some quick tests, but there’s something I need to speak to him about.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> turns from his cat form into his dragon form and flies down on top of Arthur’s shoulder then back into his cat form. He looks up lazily and Ramirez and yawns,”I used to little mage. My fire remains somewhere in the Umbral, until I retrieve it, I cannot.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur holds his hand up for Kara to see,”We are over here Kara.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> nods her head just a bit. “Yeaaaaah. But he’s still pretty cool.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> raises his hands a bit, glancing from Kara to Arthur and back again.  “Yeah, sorry.”

<+MichaelM> “Ah. So you are.” Kara gives Arthur a slight wave back. “Sorry. I’ve been out of it since last night.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Ah that’s cool!” He’d go back to looking at pictures.

<+Nickolas> Arthur stands up with Zirathur still sleeping on his shoulder purring like a cat. He then walks over to Kara,”So what is it that you wanted to talk to me about?”

<+MichaelM> “It’s…” Kara glances at the others present, then back to Arthur, “a bit complicated. But it involves your father.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Fuck I’d kill for some popcorn.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Can you eat popcorn or do you just want to pop some?”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} arrives at the theater, in his usual attire

<+Nickolas> Arthur looks at Ramirez,”Who are you talking to?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Hollow. She’s a wraith.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “She’s hella fun too and cool to hang around.”

<+Dusk> Maverick arrives to see the group all here including Arthur “Ahh there you are. I was wondering what happened to you? Man we are waist deep in shit creek”

<+Nickolas> Arthur says,”Ah.” He then attempts to open his senses to peer into the spirit world.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Oh good, Gambit’s here. He should really stir up some shit. And no… I can’t eat popcorn… or… hmmm. If you can use magic to bring it across… there -is- relic food…”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> sticks her photos back into the box and glances between the people gathered up. “Well, it could be worse.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles,”I’m not sure my magic is capable of that yet and Zirathur only goes where dragons be. Maybe I could make you some popcorn with magic instead?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> glances again at them and half smiles before taking a couple of steps back and putting his hands in his pockets.

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles and nods,”Hold on actually, I believe I have an idea.” He then goes and grabs a thing of jiffy-pop popcorn and holds his hand underneath it.”I’ve been wanting to try this…

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Gambit..heh, that’s a great name for him.” He then looked thoughtful. “Hmm, relic food. Technically, shouldn’t I be able to bring it across like I did that other object?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur’s hand begins to glow and sparks fly around it. The sound of popping can be heard within the Jiffy pop as it expands while he concentrates.

<+Nickolas> After he pops it Arthur then looks around grabs a handful, holds its pattern in his mind into the spirit world, then holds it up to where Hollow is.

<+Nickolas> Arthur then attempts to light the popcorn on fire, but fails, gives up and grabs a lighter to burn it with.”Here you go miss, spirit popcorn.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Uhm, thanks. That’s a neat trick.”, she takes it and nibbles on it a bit while she looks over at Kara. “So… you gonna tell him?”

<+MichaelM> “Good to see we’re all taking in the full gravity of our supernatural abilities and using them with appropriate responsibility.” Kara says with a sigh.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “If we can’t make ourselves happy now and then using these powers, what’s the point of having ’em?”

<+MichaelM> “A greater duty to creation? Making the world a better place,” Kara suggests, “trying not to erase ourselves from existence for trivialities?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “That’s your belief, which is fucking boring as fuck. Not everyone has to agree with that. I support the cycle of life and death and all that but fuck.. we also have other things to worry about and a little flexing teaches us how to use this stuff anyway. If it can make someone else happy too, why not?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Unless you have a way of bringing popcorn to the spirit world without magic? In which case do tell. I’ll be waiting.”

<+MichaelM> Kara mutters something in German under her breath.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks over at Kara. “Hey, wouldn’t your friends tell you to watch language like that?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks over at Arthur, then to Kara, then back again.  “Anyway… uhm… so what you been up to, Arthur?”

<+MichaelM> Kara glances, puzzled, at Angela, not sure what she’s referring to.

<+Nickolas> Arthur looks at Hollow,”So what do you know about my father?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Eeeeeeeeh. I am about the last one you want to ask that.”, she says and coughs a bit… sputtering some black goo our from her throat wound.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ just watches the two, somewhat curious. He really didn’t know that much about Arthur.

<+Morose> <Aaron> “Arthur… well… you should know…”

<+Nickolas> Arthur just looks at Aaron,”Well? Spit it out? No need to be so dramatic!

<+MichaelM> “Your father’s working with Cornel.” Kara intercedes. “They’ve kidnapped…well, somebody very important. They’ve also worked together on quite a few experiments that are just…well, horrific.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I thought Arthur was like part-Fae or something.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur drops down to his knees,”Nooooooo!” Screaming for almost a minute before Zirathur bites him.

<+Dusk> {Maverick} “Man what a drama queen” he mutters softly

<+Morose> <Aaron> winces a bit and sighs, patting him on the back.  “We won’t go into details… but it really does look that way right now.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> “Quit the act! I’m trying to sleep!”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} “I think you should go into details Aaron. Its unfair to hold back information, at least from Arthur. He has the right to know”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “That’s like Luke Skywalker and no one even took his hand away.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Really, at this point, you have him on his knees and screaming. You might as well keep going with the stuff and just give it to him.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> “He’s lucky I don’t have my teeth or he would have lost an ear…” Then goes back to sleep.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ snickers. “Toothless…”

<+MichaelM> Kara shoots Ramirez a scolding look before turning back to Arthur. “I’m sorry, Arthur,” Kara offers apologetically, “but Aaron’s right. From what we’ve seen, it’s not a pleasant picture.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks at Kara back with cross eyes. He didn’t get what was wrong.

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> snaps at Ramirez,”What did thou call me?!”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> sighs. “Toothless. There’s a cartoon. Surprised Arthur hasn’t seen it. Dragon in it is named that.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur stands up,”I know. He’s been involved in darker stuff ever since he came to New Orleans years ago. Zirathur and my mother talked to me about it long ago. I promised that I wouldn’t let them corrupt me though.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I guess I’m to know he’s mad when he starts speaking the Shakespeare.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> “Well…  it’s gone as far as kidnapping a girl who is half angel and half human so they can tear her soul out to finish their Philosopher’s Stone.”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} “It seems you dad is kind of like Darth Vader and Lord Voldemort.”

<+MichaelM> “That’s not all they’re doing,” Kara states gravely, “it gets even worse.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> nods her head. “Those Fomori didn’t just appear out of nowhere… They’ve been busy.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) growls a bit at the mention of Cornel’s name and moves back to stand over by Ramirez. “We can’t really get at them, they fled deep into the Umbra somewhere.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Yeah, we have no way of getting to them yet because they fucking ran into the Umbra and we can’t track them.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur lets out in a whiny voice,”I can’t kill my own father!”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> shakes his head,”I can try to find a path for us to enter the Umbral but it won’t be easy to bring all of you… If I do I demand food… and help recovering some of my lost parts.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> shakes her head. “I think that some other people we met have that part covered. We just don’t know where they went.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “You don’t have to kill your own father, Arthur.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> “And we con’t go wandering around in the deep Umbra…  it’s not only dangerous but we could get trapped there.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur looks at Ramirez dead straight in the face,”I am a Jedi like my father before me.”

<+MichaelM> Kara shakes her head, wondering what exactly she expected Arthur’s reaction to the news to be.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks at Arthur. “Hey, you have other Jedi around too, who will help you, okay? We’ll figure this out.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods and looks at Zirathur,”Stay here I’m going to the store. I’ll be right back.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> Zirathur lazily says,”Fine…” and climbs into Kara’s shoulders.

<+MichaelM> Kara sighs as Arthur runs off. She reaches up and scratches Zirathur in the scales at the back crest of his head.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> just sighs and shakes her head. “Poor kid.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “So who is his father exactly? Is he some kind of Fae or what? How’s he working with our crazy mage ghoul?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks over at Ramirez. “Well, he’s a Mage. Order of Hermes originally… but now… something else.”

<+MichaelM> “I don’t know how exactly he ties in with Cornel,” Kara responds, continuing to pet Zirathur. “It’s possible they collaborated on many of the experiments there. The substances they were trying to make…”

<+Morose> <Aaron> “I think Dan could look into that, though nobody has been able to reach him since the storm.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Can we be more specific please? It’s like I get this part of the story. I missed out on where Arthur came from even. He seems like a good kid though.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> nods. “Sorry. I only know a little bit. But didn’t he spend time in that Lab as a kid or something?”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} “If only we could lure them out”

<+Nickolas> Arthur comes back almost forty minutes later running into the theater with a grin all over his face.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ nods to Angela. “Sorry.. I suppose the easiest way is to ask the kid about his life but he seems to be taking things kinda rough so wasn’t sure that was a good route and I don’t want Kara eating my face.”

<+Nickolas> In his right hand he has a big toy lightsaber,

<+MichaelM> “Don’t be ridiculous. I don’t cannibalize people’s faces,” Kara scoffs.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “You can’t prove you don’t.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks over at Arthur and sighs.  “And… I think he’s lost the last of his marbles.  Maybe we should show him the paradox collaspe zone?”

<+MichaelM> “Then staying on my pleasant side is a reasonable precaution, isn’t it?” Kara retorts to Ramirez. Kara glances at Arthur as he runs back in, toy in tow. She raises an eyebrow at the scene, and brushes a stray strand of shock-white hair out of her eyes. “Er, Arthur? Why did you…nevermind.” She sighs again.

<+Nickolas> Arthur giggles and holds up his new toy. It’s a fancier FX lightsaber that makes all of the sounds.”When are we leaving for the Umbral? I can’t wait to try out my new weapon.” He waves it around with a vroom-vroom.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ smirks at Kara and then turns to Arthur to see what he was up to. “There are two people we are working with, Arthur, to try to find traces of where the others went to so we can find the girl. Can you tell us some about how you grew up and awakened..and about your father? I don’t know much about you but you seem pretty cool.”

<+MichaelM> “Arthur…” Kara begins, slowly, “we’re not going into the Umbra. It’s very dangerous, and we don’t know where Cornel and your father might be. We’re trying to find a way to lure them out or divine their location, so we don’t end up wandering around.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “This is a stupid question… but is it possible to step from my side to that world? Or would I like… blow up?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”You shouldn’t have too many issues, but I think the deadlands might drag you back over time.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”As to how… I don’t know.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> tilts his head a bit, and sighs.  “Arthur, so what do you remember about your childhood?  Or the Lab?  Maybe there is a place you would know to look for them?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”They’re looking for Arcadia.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks dubious.  “That doesn’t make much sense…  why?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”To build the Philosopher’s Rock of course.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> tilts her head. “Whyyyyy does that matter?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur looks at Angela,”You said they were using the soul of a Half-Angel kid right? That’s a lot like a Dannu. They must have realized they need the souls of the Tuatha which are in Arcadia to make their Rocks.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> “Arthur. This is the real world… Not Final Fantasy and they aren’t Espers.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I don’t know. I think the best you can do right now is that embody thing. We could try to play around later..but we’d have to figure out a way to keep you over on this side…and I can’t see how that wouldn’t take a lot of entropy or something to surround you.”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> “There are rumours of entrances to Arcadia in the Deep Umbral…

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ takes out his phone and starts looking up Tuatha.. and just becomes engrossed for a bit reading up on celtic crap from wikipedia for the moment.

<+MichaelM> Kara checks her watch and swears in German. “Sorry, I really need to check something. Give me about an hour.” Without another word, she hastens for the basement and slams the door behind her.

<+Morose> <Aaron> frowns just a little bit.  “Uhm… I don’t think that those would mesh with the things we saw looking for his, its kid.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”What doesn’t mesh?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks at Arthur and the others after now having some minutes of perusal. “Tuatha de Danaan.. celtic beings like above the Fae, prior to the Fae they were supposedly here or something? So this Arcadia is where they come from and it’s in the Umbra somewhere?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> “Uhhhh…”, she digs through her pictures until she finds the one of Zo and brings it out. It shows his physical form with a halo of light around it, and four dark imprints of wings behind him. “That.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Yes but nobody knows for sure. It would explain why we can’t find them, if they are nearing Arcadia no scrying would help. If they were to destroy the Tuatha for those Rocks then that would be disastrous.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “How are they powerful enough to destroy these beings? They must be pretty damned powerful and they still haven’t figured out how to make themselves immortal but with this stupid stone…and using vampire blood in the mean time.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> makes a bit of a face. “I do not think they need more than one stone. And they are way past being ghouls anymore… there’s another word for them when they uhm… go dark. Like that.”, she wrinkles her nose and takes a bit of her hair, playing with the end of it a bit.

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”My father is drinking vampire blood? That’s HERESY. It explains why he’s so old though… but how did he hide it from my mother?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “There’s a word for ‘dark mages’? Interesting. I learn so much hanging out with you peeps.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> nods her head just a little, almost scared to say the word. “Nephandi. They are like cultists and demon worshipers. I believe they are trying to raise Old Gods.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Then they are definitely heading to Arcadia. That’s where the Old Gods lay.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Okay… so how would we possibly find a way to turn them away from Arcadia…or is it possible to dupe them into thinking somewhere we could lure them to was Aracadia instead?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur blinks,”The problem with that is they have already left and they have more of an idea where they are going than we do. Unless I can contact Danu and see if she can lead us to Arcadia.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks at Arthur. “Cthulu and shit is sleeping in Arcadia? Since when?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Cthulu? Since when did when did this become a lovecraft production?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> blinks a bit. “I am talking about Old Gods… some shit humans don’t even have names for kinda stuff. Not like different pantheons.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Heh, Cthuluu.. that’s great. At any point..if they have some idea, we need to do something so who is this Danu?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “And maybe we should talk to Zo and his buddy too.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”She’s my Goddess who has seen fit to grant me elevated power of the Magi of old.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> chuckles.  “Zo maybe… his buddy is kinda…  I mean he’s cool everybody is different but he gave me the willies.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> whispers to ramirez, “He’s talking about his Avatar.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks thoughtful and then nods. “Zo is staying at Kara’s place I think. Shouldn’t be hard to find.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks at Arthur kind of confused and then Aaron fills in the gaps. “oOOOOh. Right then. I think we should get Zo involved. He will want to know. This does concern his daughter. Of course, we have the stone now so they’d have to eventually come back for it, wouldn’t they? Why did they leave without it? Do they have some way of calling it to them?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks thoughtful. “We should study it. Perhaps it was flawed or something and they are making a different one?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Well we may have to ask the local vampires for help. I wonder if they can stay in the Umbral longer than us. Aaron do you know of any tribes of shifters we can contact? I will try to see if I can enlist any aid from the changelings but I doubt we will get much other than advice. Although if they could help us search for Arcadia… Let’s just say the Tuatha would be invaluable allies against any ‘Old Gods.'”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Yeah..maybe it is. It doesn’t look very healthy. That would mean its about useless except for what power went into making it then. I was hoping we’d have something on them. You know..can you trace people’s magic by what they actually made?”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} “Alright, you guys come up with a plan. I got somethings to do. See you all later” saying that he leaves

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> looks thoughtful about that. “I can’t… but Father Thomas might be able to.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> shakes his head just a bit.  “I will seek Coyote’s guidence as he travels far into the Umbra often.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Like maybe using Spirit.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”I’m going to check something out at the University that may help us.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Oh my God i am so fucking stupid. I might be able to trace it with a power we call Lifeweb.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Yeah? That sounds exactly like what I’m talking about. You think it could work with that orb?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) nods a bit. “Yeah, maybe. If Cornel touched it I might be able to, since I have a connection with him.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I figured if it was something they made there should be some trace. Well maybe we can go mess with that while others are doing their things. Let’s figure out what we need to do.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> nods.  “Well then… if I find anything, I’ll leave messages here.  And we’ll meet up soon.  Watch your backs… they may come at us but i doubt it will be direct.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Alright, Aaron. Sounds good. See you later.” He’d head up to wherever he was staying in that place since he couldn’t really go back to his home now that he was dead. he took what he wanted from the apartment anyway.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) follow Ramirez up the stairs, her black inky blood dripping on them and sprouting dead flowers in the physical world as she walks.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ would try to not kill the living plants if there were any. ~

<+Nickolas> Arthur also follows behind interested in what’s going on but also wondering about the flowers.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> takes out her camera and takes pictures of the dead flowers. “That is so weird and cool.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”But it also seems familiar”

<+MichaelM> Kara makes her way back upstairs, looking a good deal more sleep-deprive than she did going down.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Well duuuuh. Who do you think was haunting you and Kara that day?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur blinks,”I thought it was a spawn of Satan.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “That is so funny. I’m glad you stuck around, Hollow. You are awesome and a trip compared to some of the banality around here.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Banality?! Where? Kill it with fire!”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I mean it can be boring as fuck around here when people are bossy about following the law and stuff.”

<+MichaelM> “I’m going to chose to ignore that comment.” Kara mutters at Ramirez’s comment. She turns to Arthur and blinks blearily. “Please don’t set any more fires in this building while I’m here. Or at all, really.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “You know that I only say it because I care, Kara. You’re alright. Just kinda bossy.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Oddly enough that spell doesn’

<+Nickolas> doesn’t work like it used to. Apparently I need to use other methods since encountering the Danu.”

<+MichaelM> “I’ll show you bossy.” Kara mutters darkly before collapsing into a chair.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “When? Seems like you got nothing till tomorrow.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> follows the others and looks over at Kara. “You think maybe you could ask Zo to come by here later so we could talk to him?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Can’t you just use a mundane magical device to contact him? They’re called cell phones.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Send him a naked pic of Kim Kardashian and tell him he’s needed here tomorrow.”

<+MichaelM> “How on earth would that help?!” Kara sputters, blushing brightly.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> “We need to talk to him about this whole faerie danu thing stuff versus what he is and what he knows.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Who is Zo anyway?”

<+MichaelM> “I can ask him, sure. But I am not, nor will I ever, text nude pictures of anyone to anyone.” Kara responds, fighting the flush in her face.

<+Nickolas> Arthur shakes his head,”Why Kim Kardashian? It’s better to send him nude pics of himself.”

<+MichaelM> “Why would you assume I, or anyone, have nude pictures of him?!” Kara practically shouts, her blush worsening if anything.

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”If you live with him then why don’t you?”

<+MichaelM> Kara sighs, closes her eyes, and rubs her temples. “For one, we’re not married. For two, he’s far, *far* out of my league, and for three,” Kara’s blush manages to worsen a bit more, “I don’t swing that way. Or, well, any way, really.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Are you sure you don’t have any? I’d like to see them.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Oh so you haven’t claimed him? Then maybe *I* will.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> grins a little bit. “So would I… damn… I mean… well, he is really kinda hot.”

<+MichaelM> “Quite. Sure.” Kara states as calmly as possible through clenched teeth.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> “Ooooooh, but does he even have… you know. Like… junk? Cause I mean… aren’t Angels like… ken dolls?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Angela> “But then how would he have a kid? Well… I suppose there is the whole immaculate conception thing…”

<+MichaelM> “How should I know?!” Kara cries, burying her face in her hands.

<+MichaelM> “(German) Why me, why me?” Kara mutters to herself.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “You live with that guy?! And you haven’t seen him naked.. wow.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles,”Don’t worry… I’ll get the answer to all of these questions. I’m pretty enough for anyone.” He flips his long gorgeous hair and laughs

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Angels can’t be like Ken dolls..How do angels and demons mate to make Nephalem? My game Diablo wants to know.”

<+MichaelM> “I’m starting to re-think my ‘not cannibalizing faces’ policy.” Kara says with a glare.

<+Nickolas> Arthur genuinely bursts into laughter,”Hollow are you hearing this? Hahaha”

<+MichaelM> “Seriously starting to re-consider it.” Kara glares witheringly at Arthur.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Yeah. I can hear just fine. And I can see this guy is going to just love all these questions. At least it’s not the other one.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “The one about where babies come from?”

<+MichaelM> Kara takes a deep, calming breath before speaking with incredibly forced tranquillity; “Okay, let’s set this completely straight. No, I have never seen him naked. No, I have no desire to ever see him naked. No, I’m not going to ask him about how he procreates.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Well I suppose I don’t mind taking one for the team then. I will start heading over there right now. I’ll let you guys know how big he is.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur then starts walking towards the stairs.

<+MichaelM> “Try at and you’ll get a holy bullet in the shin.” Kara warns. She pats the holster partially obscured by her jacket.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “There are meds to deal with these kinds of thoughts, Kara. Have a good night. Get some cannabis.” He waves and heads upstairs for solid now, going to work with Hollow on the actual work they were supposed to be doing…before taking out a video game.

<+Nickolas> Arthur laughs,”I’m going to bed. Maybe I’ll be visited by an Angel in the night and we’ll all get our answers.” He laughs again.

<+Nickolas> Arthur goes back to his little cubby area and starts moaning loudly to where Kara can hear him.

<+MichaelM> Kara puts in ear-buds and begins praying in German, pointedly ignoring Arthur.

<+gruegirl> At the front of the theater, Ruth is poking around. She’d heard of this place from a few of the others but still was a bit wary about meeting in an abandoned theater… she was usually one to do her business in plain sight and have some deniability if you get caught.

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| seems to oddly find this abandoned theatre. Someone left a note in front of his haven to seen the place out. Stepping out during the day was something he never imagined he could ever do again. Fear was Gennoske’s first reaction. But as the golden rays warmed his now living felt pleasant. For all its worth, Gennoske was glad he could see the sunrise once again in his life

<+MichaelM> Inside the theatre, Kara’s eyes open. She takes her earbuds out and calls over to Arthur; “Did you invite anyone over today?”

<+gruegirl> Ruth upon seeing Magatsu head inside, tries to walk casual, and waits a little while before going in after him

<+Nickolas> Arthur stops his loud moaning,”No, I didn’t. Why?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur begins to walk towards the door

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| is standing outside. A vampire in broad daylight

<+MichaelM> “Because we have guests,” Kara turns her tired eyes to the door as Magatsu and Ruth walk in, “who can show themselves in, apparently.” She lets out an exhausted sigh before standing up. “Hello again, you two. To what do we owe the pleasure?”

<+gruegirl> Ruth shrugs slightly “Was just poking around mostly. Heard rumors you guys had a hangout.”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “Oh its you guys. Well someone left a note with this address in my mailbox. I was curious where it led to. So this is your hideout”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> wakes up slightly on Arthur’s shoulder and turns into the form of a Dragon.”Don’t mind my small stature, if I was full size I would crush my pretty princesses shoulders. Make sure you behave yourselves.”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “Oh so that day he was telling the truth about a tiny dragon friend, while drunk”

<+Nickolas> Arthur then pets the small dragons scales and holds out a hand to Ruth,”Hello, I’m Arthur.”

<+gruegirl> Ruth shakes arthur’s hand “Ruth O’Hara.” She says smirking

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “I believe we have already met Arthur. I was the one who carried your passed out drunk ass to the car at the Trill”

<+MichaelM> “The Trill, hmm?” Kara looks intrigued, “you wouldn’t know Zane would you?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles his green-gold eyes sparkling and his long platinum hair waving back and forth. Ruth can tell that he is an incredibly attractive man, more so than many models. His features are nearly flawless almost otherworldly beauty.

<+Nickolas> Arthur looks at  Magatsu,”Drunk? I don’t drink.”

<+gruegirl> Ruth is quite a bit more plain. Standing only 5’5″ with red hair. She’s also not wearing very form-flattering clothing, a thick jacket and jeans. “I’m new to the whole finger-wiggling thing. So you’ll forgive me if I don’t talk the talk…”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “You got drunk on jello shots buddy” he gazes at Kara “Oh its you. I’m glad the vest saved you from the fish. Yes I know Zane.”

<+MichaelM> Kara stands an intimidating 4 feet and 1 inch, clothed in a thin white sweater and red athletic vest. Her hair is shock white. Her features are too angular to be attractive by any means. “Small world. Tell him I said hi next time you see him, will you.” Kara says to Magatsu with a faint smile before turning to Ruth. “I’m not exactly an old hat with magic myself.”

<+gruegirl> “Older than me.” ruth says with a smirk “Until I met Angela and you, I didn’t even think to call it magic.”

<+gruegirl> “I thought I’d just gained a level of control over my own high, and the contact high of those around me.” Ruth says shrugging.

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles,”Well the Order of Avalon welcomes all Mages!”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “Is that the name of your group?”

<@Aeon-Rook> <Zirathur> “I thought we were going to call it ‘The order of the Dragon.'”

<+gruegirl> “Well if you don’t mind the fact that I have to be high-as-balls to use any of this stuff. Glad to be here.” Ruth says smirking and she reaches over to scratch Zilarthur under the chin a bit “You are cute.”

<+MichaelM> “Fair enough.” Kara shrugs, deciding not to press the issue. “As long as you don’t mind my powers coming through prayer.”

<+gruegirl> “Never touch the stuff, but you do you.” Ruth says to Kara.

<+MichaelM> Kara smirks slightly at the joke, then turns to Magatsu. “How are you…adapting?” She asks, cautiously. “Zo told me how big of a change this would be for you.”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| “It feel…good” the emphasis on the sentence was clearly the word ‘good’. “Imagine your biggest weakness gone, and you get a chance to become what you were once, long ago. Its both redeeming and empowering. Better enjoy it while it lasts”

<+gruegirl> “Sounds like the first time I tried amphetamines.”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| laughed “Dont do too much drugs. Anyway, I was just curious where this address leads to. I’ll see you guys later. I think I’ll go eat at a restaurant now. Good day”

<+Dusk> |Magatsu| waves to everyone and leaves

<+Nickolas> Arthur waves,”Farewell, have a good day. Don’t forget to put on sunscreen!”

<+gruegirl> “Odd duck that one.” Ruth says shrugging a bit and pulls out her cigarette case. “Nobody here’s a narc are they?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Kara sort of is.”

<+gruegirl> “Well I won’t narc on her to the secret athiest’s society if she doesn’t narc on me for blazing.” Ruth says with a slight chuckle pulling a joint out of the case

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Honestly we could all probably use one… may I try?”

<+MichaelM> “I used to be a forensic analyst and researcher for the FBI.” Kara clarifies quickly. “That ended when my employer hid horrific experiments both blasphemous and terrible from me, and blew up the building I worked in to avoid facing the consequences of his actions.” Kara lets out a long sigh, then adds; “I still have friends on the local police force from my days as a forensic consultant. I won’t keep information from them that might get them hurt. Or general people. Other than that, you can go nuts as far as I’m concerned.”

<+gruegirl> “Neat.” Ruth passes an extra joint to Arthur “These are from a source of mine in Columbia. He’s moslty my coke guy but he occasionally gets his hands on THC.” And she lights up.

<+Nickolas> Arthur puts it in his mouth and then closes his eyes with his finger over it.

<+Nickolas> Arthur sighs,”Do you have a lighter?”

<+gruegirl> Ruth passes her lighter to Arthur. “Don’t leave home without it.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur lights it up and takes a deep puff and coughs horrifically.

<+gruegirl> Ruth laughs pretty hard. She takes a slow drag “Ya know… If that’s too hard on you, I could make a bong out of stuff around here.”

<+MichaelM> Kara waves a gust of smoke away from her nose, looking slightly unamused.

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”Are you going to light it up with us Kara?”

<+MichaelM> “I’ll pass.” Kara responds diplomatically.

<+Nickolas> Arthur smiles,”Let’s go make the biggest bong we can!”

<+gruegirl> Ruth smirks “Alright… Do we have a plastic bucket?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods and goes and fetches a bucket from the basement.

<+Nickolas> “What’s next?”

<+MichaelM> “Hold on! You’re not taking anything from the basement!” Kara calls out as Arthur starts to run off. “My lab’s down there, and I can’t guarantee everything down there is sterilized.

<+gruegirl> Ruth heads to her car and comes back with an empty two liter bottle, a quick pocket knife later she’s cut the bottom off “This is an old school gravity bong.” she says smirking  “Wash it the heck out, then fill the bucket with water.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Too late Kara. Also it wasn’t in your lab… it was by the door.” He then goes outside and finds a working hose and starts spraying out the bucket and everything else humming out loud.

<+gruegirl> Ruth fiddles with the lid of the two-liter and with some tape has the joint affixed inside an airtight little seal. “Alright you ready?”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Yes! Let’s do this! Maybe we should get some Jello Shots too!”

<+gruegirl> Ruth just laughs a bit and with some manipulation she draws the two-liter up slowly. The vaccuum filling it with steam and pot smoke. “When I take the lid off, you be ready to inhale.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Alright let’s do this!I am ready to be higher than a pixie over Neverland!”

<+gruegirl> And the lid’s off, nearly two liters of pot smoke heads streight for Arthur.

<+MichaelM> Kara sighs heavily, then starts for the basement. “If anyone needs me I’ll be praying for our immortal souls,” she says wearily. “Try not to burn the place down again, Arthur.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur breathes as much of it in as possible and then coughs for five straight minutes. With a red face he says,”I donut feel an knee differant.”

<+gruegirl> Ruth smirks and gets her own hit ready. “This stuff kinda sneaks up on you.” She takes a big ol’ inhale of the stuff as the smoke rushes to her face and she smiles deeply “‘S good that way. Nize and smoooove.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur starts laughing hysterically,”A knee, Annie I don’t feel Annie smmoooove…”

<+gruegirl> Ruth laughs for a streight minute. Between the pot and Arthur’s reaction to it. “Dude you’re toasty!”

<+Nickolas> Arthur laughs again,”Toasty! One time I lit this whole place up! That was toasty! You should even ask Hollow about it hahaha. Now imagine this stuff with some pixie dust! Man that’d get you higher than a kite I tell you. Maybe mix up some fairy style enchantments and make this stuff really dreamy.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur’s eyes go super wide,”Hey… why don’t we do that? Why don’t we go into some pot smokers dreams and take their kush to the real world with is and light it up?”

<+gruegirl> Ruth slurs slightly as she takes another hit, not as heavy this time but still enough to hit her “Nah I herd about you… You like playin’ wif… wif that thing that makes reality snap back when ya pull onnit too hard.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur,”I don’t know man. I never used to have that problem… da Fairies are protected by the mists when they do their stuff. If only I could make the mists my armor dude… wrap everything in dreams.”

<+gruegirl> “Nah yasee… I go wif what I know.” Ruth says smiling “I know drugs… I been dealing them since I was 11. Been takin’ coke and weed since I was a little older than that…. I infuse my thoughts in tha smoke… or alter mah perceptions wif ’em.”

<+Nickolas> Arthur nods,”Well I know fairies… and this is nothing like the kind of high being around them can give you.”

<+gruegirl> “This, this is just pot.” Ruth says shrugging. “Pot’s not the strongest stuff in the world. Not even the strongest stuff I deal.” She shrugs

<+Nickolas> Arthur shakes his head,”Dude… Fairies make you hallucinate imaginary stuff… and that imaginary stuff is REAL. Imagine if we made a drug that could do the same to people? We could sell it and make a killing… and people would start seeing fairies again! Yes! That’s how we do it, let’s make fairy-drugs and start dealing them man!”

<+gruegirl> “If ya can tack on some addictive chemistry sounds like a money-maker.” Ruth says nodding “Could work.”
