[11/26/2014 8:14:47 PM] Josie: Ry wakes up the next evening with Tess still snoozling and kinda partly draped over him. She's pretty heavy.
[11/26/2014 8:15:40 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft checks the time.
[11/26/2014 8:16:17 PM] Josie: Sunset; probably around 5 p.m.
[11/26/2014 8:16:32 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft rubs his eyes and tries to gently extricate himself.
[11/26/2014 8:17:29 PM] Josie: Roll a D10!
[11/26/2014 8:17:38 PM] Rycroft: (( 1! ))
[11/26/2014 8:19:01 PM] Josie: He almost manages to push Tess off the bed, but she snorts and wakes up, grabbing him so she doesn't fall!
[11/26/2014 8:19:51 PM] Josie: Tess: Eeyai!
[11/26/2014 8:19:56 PM] Rycroft: .... sorry about that.
[11/26/2014 8:20:30 PM] Rycroft: I was trying to extricate myself gently, but my leg got all tangled up in the sheets.
[11/26/2014 8:20:34 PM] Josie: Tess: No, that's fine. ... wow, I'm all over you, huh.
[11/26/2014 8:20:50 PM] Josie: She kisses him on the cheek and sits up, carefully.
[11/26/2014 8:25:20 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft sits up and checks his messages.
[11/26/2014 8:26:46 PM] Josie: There's a note from Rose--just an address and the words "Anytime."
[11/26/2014 8:27:56 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft texts back. "Specificity is the sould of good communication."
[11/26/2014 8:30:07 PM] Josie: Rose sends a note: "We'll wake him up when you get here--and the movers will start then."
[11/26/2014 8:32:22 PM] Rycroft: Better get ready to move.
[11/26/2014 8:33:25 PM] Josie: Tess: Why, am I sitting on your foot?
[11/26/2014 8:33:31 PM] Josie: She moves a little bit in case she is.
[11/26/2014 8:33:51 PM] Rycroft: Rose is moving us to a new place.
[11/26/2014 8:35:34 PM] Josie: Tess: Oh, wow, okay. Hopefully I won't take up most of your closet there.
[11/26/2014 8:44:04 PM] Rycroft: I'm assuming it'll be bigger.
[11/26/2014 8:44:14 PM] Rycroft: I have to go interview this faerie guy.
[11/26/2014 8:44:44 PM] Josie: Tess: Yeah. I guess our family's expanding. Oh? Well, make sure he doesn't put the mojo on you.
[11/26/2014 8:45:21 PM] Rycroft: I'm not worried. I'll have an iron crowbar.
[11/26/2014 8:50:00 PM] Josie: Tess: Good call. I should probably stay here with the kids, huh?
[11/26/2014 8:59:02 PM] Rycroft: Why wouldn't you?
[11/26/2014 8:59:43 PM] Josie: Tess: Well, I *do* like spending time with you. And beating up monsters and stuff.
[11/26/2014 9:00:38 PM] Rycroft: Well, hopefully that won't happen as much now.
[11/26/2014 9:01:35 PM] Josie: She eyes him. "Yeah?"
[11/26/2014 9:04:12 PM] Rycroft: Well, that's why we're moving.
[11/26/2014 9:06:38 PM] Rycroft: Less monsters, hopefully.
[11/26/2014 9:19:05 PM] Josie: Tess: I hope so too. I was kinda worried when you started texting me in a weird language.
[11/26/2014 9:19:33 PM] Rycroft: That was weird.
[11/26/2014 9:20:12 PM] Josie: Tess: What did it feel like?
[11/26/2014 9:20:32 PM] Rycroft: Like too much absinthe.
[11/26/2014 9:22:47 PM] Josie: Tess: Oh, ugh, France. I remember that feeling.
[11/26/2014 9:23:53 PM] Rycroft: Yeah.
[11/26/2014 9:25:22 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft gets up and gets dressed.
[11/26/2014 9:26:09 PM] Josie: Tess does too.
[11/26/2014 9:26:16 PM] Josie: Tess: You sure you're okay?
[11/26/2014 9:26:40 PM] Rycroft: No after effects that I can tell.
[11/26/2014 9:31:46 PM] Rycroft: Just a desire to never ever do that again.
[11/26/2014 9:32:24 PM] Josie: Tess: Good. I hear some folks get addicted the first time.
[11/26/2014 9:34:01 PM] Rycroft: Ugh, no.
[11/26/2014 9:35:14 PM] Josie: Tess: You had a bad trip. Wow, I haven't gotten to use that one since the '60s.
[11/26/2014 9:35:36 PM] Rycroft: Mmm. Was it good for you?
[11/26/2014 9:36:23 PM] Josie: Tess: The trip? I tried to eat a couch, so... not really?
[11/26/2014 9:38:29 PM] Rycroft: No, I mean using the term bad trip just now.
[11/26/2014 9:41:03 PM] Josie: Tess: Oh! Hehehe, yeah. My head is all full of old slang. You'd be surprised how often I *really* want to say "that's the cat's pajamas!"
[11/26/2014 9:43:11 PM] Rycroft: Why don't you? Aren't the young people today wearing handlebar mustaches and old clothes? Retro is in.
[11/26/2014 9:44:42 PM] Josie: Tess: Only for hipsters. I don't think I'm a hipster, am I?
[11/26/2014 9:45:48 PM] Rycroft: I don't think so. Just saying, it's probably not that odd to use whatever slang you want.
[11/26/2014 9:47:00 PM] Josie: Tess: I'm pretty careful about it, normally.
[11/26/2014 9:47:49 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft smiles and gives her a kiss.
[11/26/2014 9:48:56 PM] Josie: She kisses him back.
[11/26/2014 9:50:28 PM] Rycroft: I'd better drink my fill before I leave.
[11/26/2014 9:52:14 PM] Josie: Tess: Yeah. We'll just have to trust Gray to have a full fridge in the new place, I guess. You know she does blood drives and stuff all the time to make sure there's enough out there for humans too.
[11/26/2014 9:57:13 PM | Edited 9:57:22 PM] Rycroft: I know. I just mean that the last couple times I've gone out, I've had to bleed or use my powers a lot more than I anticipated.
[11/26/2014 9:58:41 PM] Josie: Tess: Yeah. Maybe we should start locking the fridge.
[11/26/2014 10:00:05 PM] Rycroft: Why? Is Faye getting in there?
[11/26/2014 10:00:51 PM] Josie: Tess: Nah. I'm just worried someone else might. It's one of our major vulnerabilities.
[11/26/2014 10:01:37 PM] Rycroft: Good point. Not the worst idea.
[11/26/2014 10:05:55 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft goes to the fridge!
[11/26/2014 10:06:50 PM] Josie: Six blood packs left!
[11/26/2014 10:07:07 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft opens one up and sniffs at it.
[11/26/2014 10:07:09 PM] Josie: Tess follows.
[11/26/2014 10:07:12 PM] Josie: Smells pretty good!
[11/26/2014 10:07:24 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft downs it.
[11/26/2014 10:07:49 PM] Josie: He doesn't die horribly!
[11/26/2014 10:09:29 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft looks around, is Lizard about?
[11/26/2014 10:09:58 PM] Josie: Nope! She must be sleepin' in. No sign of Faye either.
[11/26/2014 10:11:51 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft goes and checks on her.
[11/26/2014 10:13:01 PM] Josie: She's sleeping; Faye is on top of her feet.
[11/26/2014 10:14:27 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft goes and gets his coat. "Okay. I'm heading out. Tell them to expect movers, have Faye become invisible or what have you."
[11/26/2014 10:15:17 PM] Josie: Tess: Will do. Good luck. And be careful, okay?
[11/26/2014 10:15:46 PM] Rycroft: I will. I'll be in touch. Call me if anything happens.
[11/26/2014 10:17:33 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft heads down to the basement first to get his rat.
[11/26/2014 10:22:48 PM] Josie: The rat shuffles out when he sniffs him.
[11/26/2014 10:25:08 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft opens his pocket up. "Hope you don't mind leaving. Looks like we'll be moving pretty soon. Hop in, I have to go ask some questions of a faerie. Which is definitely the strangest thing I've ever said to a rat in my life."
[11/26/2014 10:28:18 PM] Josie: Silver: Do you talk to a lot of rats? And what kind of faerie?
[11/26/2014 10:28:20 PM] Josie: He hops in.
[11/26/2014 10:29:21 PM] Rycroft: The guy from last night. Don't worry, I likely won't need you for that, but I just want to make sure you make it to the new place.
[11/26/2014 10:31:28 PM] Josie: Silver: Ah, good. He didn't seem likely to try to eat me or make me dance.
[11/26/2014 10:32:56 PM] Rycroft: No worries. I'm gonna stop at a hardware store and get a crowbar first. Something imposing and iron. Feel free to nap, though, I'll let you know if I need you.
[11/26/2014 10:40:54 PM] Josie: Silver: All right.
[11/26/2014 11:09:12 PM] Josie: The rat settles in. He's pretty still!
[11/26/2014 11:09:45 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft heads out, going to a hardware store first, then hoping a cab and going to the address.
[11/26/2014 11:12:47 PM] Josie: Easily done.
[11/26/2014 11:13:52 PM] Josie: The address is a little bit out of the city, and turns out to be a *very* expensive-looking beachhouse off the ocean. Of course it's too cold for swimming, but it's pretty nice for walking and the like.
[11/26/2014 11:17:47 PM] Josie: It's a pretty big, opulent house, and very modern, sprawled out at the edge of the beach. There's not much in the way of trees around it.
[11/26/2014 11:23:03 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft goes to the front door!
[11/26/2014 11:24:37 PM] Josie: It's up a bit and there's a window with a clear view of it--and some videocameras, too. And apparently, another weight-sensing plate.
[11/26/2014 11:28:36 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft knocks.
[12/1/2014 6:42:02 PM] Josie: Rose answers the door herself, smiling at Ry. She's wearing a neat black suit and has taken her shoes off.
[12/1/2014 6:42:22 PM] Josie: Rose: There you are. Had a nice rest, I hope. You're not sparkling anymore, so that's good.
[12/1/2014 6:43:20 PM] Rycroft: Yeah, I never want to do that again.
[12/1/2014 6:46:36 PM] Josie: Rose: I don't think you'll have to. He's not in any shape for it anyway; he had a blood transfusion as it was. It seems fae are a bit more fragile than we are.
[12/1/2014 6:51:28 PM] Rycroft: Mmm. He's not trying any fae stuff, right?
[12/1/2014 6:52:07 PM] Josie: Rose: No. Which is quite interesting all in itself.
[12/1/2014 6:54:52 PM] Rycroft: Why do you say that?
[12/1/2014 6:56:03 PM] Josie: Rose: There are a number of possibilities. Maybe he doesn't have magic.
[12/1/2014 6:56:23 PM] Josie: Rose: Maybe he wants what we've got enough to wait out the... inconvenience.
[12/1/2014 6:58:23 PM] Rycroft: What is it we have? Besides Lizard.
[12/1/2014 7:00:53 PM] Josie: Rose: That might be it. But I'm still not sure what exactly he wants *with* her.
[12/1/2014 7:01:17 PM] Josie: Rose: I haven't really asked him any questions, though. I have a specialist if we need it, but I thought you'd rather have a go first.
[12/1/2014 7:02:14 PM] Rycroft: I can try.
[12/1/2014 7:03:52 PM] Josie: She smiles. "All right."
[12/1/2014 7:05:40 PM] Rycroft: Anything in particular you want to me to ask him?
[12/1/2014 7:06:40 PM] Josie: Rose: Not really. Find out why he's here and what he wants with Lizard. She *really* does need a better name. And if you can find out what a Greensinger is, do.
[12/1/2014 7:06:42 PM] Josie: She leads him through the kitchen, and into the living room, a spacious room in whites and light blues, all very open and very modern. Except that there's an elf guy ziptied to a chair at the dining room table. Incongruously he's wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt with a D20 saying "crit happens!" on it. No shoes or socks.
[12/1/2014 7:09:05 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft takes his coat off and sets it down carefully.
[12/1/2014 7:10:52 PM] Josie: Malag eyes him. He's got some stitches over his eyebrow now, probably from getting thrown into the wall the previous night.
[12/1/2014 7:12:13 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft pulls out his crowbar. "Evening, sunshine."
[12/1/2014 7:12:47 PM] Josie: He rolls his eyes. "We don't even have sunlight. Demon."
[12/1/2014 7:17:01 PM] Rycroft: Interesting. What do you have instead?
[12/1/2014 7:17:32 PM] Josie: Malag: Normal light. That doesn't burn.
[12/1/2014 7:19:23 PM] Rycroft: Where does it come from?
[12/1/2014 7:19:44 PM] Josie: He eyes Ry like he's nuts. "The sky?"
[12/1/2014 7:20:23 PM] Rycroft: So how did you get here?
[12/1/2014 7:21:33 PM] Josie: He starts speaking in that weird Klingon-Welsh hybrid again.
[12/1/2014 7:23:20 PM] Josie: Judging from how much he's rolling his eyes he's not terribly impressed with the question.
[12/1/2014 7:26:31 PM] Rycroft: I didn't catch that. I don't speak 'Faerie Asshole'.
[12/1/2014 7:26:48 PM] Josie: Malagerin: You're a kidnapper and *I'm* the asshole?
[12/1/2014 7:30:10 PM] Rycroft: Yes.
[12/1/2014 7:30:28 PM] Rycroft: So what's a Greensinger?
[12/1/2014 7:31:00 PM] Josie: Malagerin: ... I could try, but you'd only hear it as fae again. Your language doesn't even have those concepts in it.
[12/1/2014 7:32:51 PM] Rycroft: Some kind of royalty?
[12/1/2014 7:33:36 PM] Josie: Malagerin frowns. "... that might be the closest you can get to the concept, yes."
[12/1/2014 7:36:07 PM] Josie: Malagerin: Royalty that royals by being?
[12/1/2014 7:37:04 PM] Josie: Malagerin: Does that... does that help?
[12/1/2014 7:37:47 PM] Rycroft: A little, yes.
[12/1/2014 7:38:06 PM] Josie: Malagerin: Why are you asking me, anyway?
[12/1/2014 7:38:20 PM] Rycroft: A being that just kind of exudes and generates authority just by exisiting?
[12/1/2014 7:39:51 PM] Josie: Malagerin: ... yes, but... not just authority. Existence? order?
[12/1/2014 7:40:28 PM] Josie: Malagerin: ... they make things go?
[12/1/2014 7:43:06 PM] Josie: Malag: ... great, now I'm playing charades with a kidnapper. Why are you *asking* me? Why don't you ask the one you abducted?
[12/1/2014 7:43:53 PM] Rycroft: I didn't abduct anything. Why did you come into my building?
[12/1/2014 7:44:21 PM] Josie: Malag: To *save* her, obviously.
[12/1/2014 7:45:04 PM] Rycroft: Why? What's your stake in this?
[12/1/2014 7:46:37 PM] Josie: Malag: ... why would I have to have a stake in it? Can't I just rescue somebody?
[12/1/2014 7:51:44 PM] Rycroft: Usually most heroes go to save a loved one, or someone he or she wants as a loved one. Damsels and all of that.
[12/1/2014 7:53:19 PM] Josie: Malag: Well I haven't ever met her.
[12/1/2014 7:55:58 PM] Josie: He shifts, uncomfortably in his chair.
[12/1/2014 7:56:24 PM] Rycroft: But I'm not wrong, am I? You're looking for a chance to become Mr. Greensinger.
[12/1/2014 7:56:48 PM] Rycroft: Did you see her one day in a marketplace? Was she disguised as a commoner?
[12/1/2014 7:58:37 PM] Josie: He turns bright red, though it's hard to tell if it's embarassment or anger. "I *don't* want to be Mr. *anything.*"
[12/1/2014 7:58:56 PM] Josie: Malag: And I've *never* met her. Not ever. Disguised or not.
[12/1/2014 8:00:23 PM] Rycroft: So, how did you get here?
[12/1/2014 8:01:01 PM] Josie: Malag: I *told* you once already.
[12/1/2014 8:01:08 PM] Josie: He launches in an explanation, all in Elven.
[12/1/2014 8:01:49 PM] Rycroft: Magic hole?
[12/1/2014 8:04:22 PM] Josie: Malag: ... yes. Yes. I walked through a magic hole.
[12/1/2014 8:07:23 PM] Rycroft: Is this a common occurence? Are such magic holes just lying around where you're from? Or did you open it yourself? Or have someone else send you here?
[12/1/2014 8:10:25 PM] Josie: Malag: No, I had to... wait, why would I even tell you that? Why am I talking to you *at all.*
[12/1/2014 8:13:32 PM] Rycroft: Good question. Maybe because you've had some time to think and you realize that if I *am* holding your damsel, that there might be a direct correlation between your cooperation and said Greensinger's theoretical well-being.
[12/1/2014 8:15:52 PM] Josie: He sighs. "I had to find the right place and fight my way to it."
[12/1/2014 8:16:43 PM] Rycroft: So are talking a field of mirrors in an enchanted forest? Ancient ruins?
[12/1/2014 8:18:08 PM] Josie: Malag: No, but you obviously know what I'm talking about. ... well, your end was a lot of trees.
[12/1/2014 8:19:43 PM] Rycroft: So, what led you to my building?
[12/1/2014 8:20:35 PM] Josie: Malag looks at Ry like he's nuts.
[12/1/2014 8:20:41 PM] Josie: Malag: ... it's where she is.
[12/1/2014 8:26:32 PM] Rycroft: So you just know where she is?
[12/1/2014 8:28:50 PM] Josie: Malag: Of course I do.
[12/1/2014 8:30:23 PM] Rycroft: Even right now?
[12/1/2014 8:32:28 PM] Josie: He looks in the direction of Ry's apartment. "She's that way."
[12/1/2014 8:33:27 PM] Rycroft: So, can you do that because of who you are or what you are?
[12/1/2014 8:35:49 PM] Josie: Malag: ... a lot of people will know where a Greensinger is.
[12/1/2014 8:38:18 PM] Rycroft: What kind of people?
[12/1/2014 8:40:05 PM] Josie: Malag: Anyone from my homeland. ... though not all of them will, either.
[12/1/2014 8:42:56 PM] Rycroft: Do you know why that is?
[12/1/2014 8:43:57 PM] Josie: Malag: I have no idea.
[12/1/2014 8:44:01 PM] Josie: He *eyes* Ry.
[12/1/2014 8:44:08 PM] Josie: ((Roll a d10!))
[12/1/2014 8:45:37 PM] Rycroft: ((8!))
[12/1/2014 8:46:02 PM] Josie: Hiding something!
[12/1/2014 8:47:18 PM] Rycroft: I think you do have an idea, though.
[12/1/2014 8:49:35 PM] Josie: He sighs huffily.
[12/1/2014 8:50:05 PM] Josie: Malag: Some of it depends on blood, and some of it on how much ... that's not going to come through right anyway. Connection?
[12/1/2014 8:54:28 PM] Rycroft: Bloodlines, you mean? Some bloodlines react strongly to other bloodlines?
[12/1/2014 8:56:41 PM] Josie: Malag: Yes. But that's not exactly what I was talking about. It's a sort of... connection between people. Not necessarily people you know.
[12/1/2014 8:56:55 PM] Josie: Malag: ... could you put the iron down?
[12/1/2014 9:01:26 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft shrugs, and sets it down on a table, but doesn't really get far away from the crowbar.
[12/1/2014 9:01:31 PM] Rycroft: Sure.
[12/1/2014 9:04:43 PM] Josie: Malag: Thank you. Now it's *almost* a civilized conversation.
[12/1/2014 9:06:07 PM] Josie: Malag: I don't understand why you don't just let her go.
[12/1/2014 9:06:20 PM] Josie: Malag: You don't even seem to know what she is. What's the point?
[12/1/2014 9:10:18 PM] Rycroft: Because nothing is every that simple.
[12/1/2014 9:11:54 PM] Josie: Malag: Well, what do you want? You haven't even issued any demands.
[12/1/2014 9:12:41 PM] Rycroft: Mmmhm. Think about that for a few moments. Why would I *not* issue demands?
[12/1/2014 9:13:23 PM] Josie: Malag: ...because you plan to kill her anyway.
[12/1/2014 9:16:24 PM] Josie: He wriggles a bit, and his chair falls over.
[12/1/2014 9:25:35 PM] Rycroft: Ow. That looks like it hurt.
[12/1/2014 9:25:46 PM] Rycroft: What would i benefit by killing anyone?
[12/1/2014 9:26:41 PM] Josie: Malag: Gee, I have no idea how you could possibly benefit from disrupting the natural order.
[12/1/2014 9:26:45 PM] Josie: He squirms more.
[12/1/2014 9:27:22 PM] Rycroft: I know that you're being facetious, but really, how *would* that benefit me?
[12/1/2014 9:27:44 PM] Rycroft: Seriously?
[12/1/2014 9:28:29 PM] Josie: Malag: It's not even an act of war! It's an act of... of *genocide.*
[12/1/2014 9:30:47 PM] Rycroft: Then *why* would I do it? I'm not some mustache twirling storybook villain.
[12/1/2014 9:31:35 PM] Josie: Malag: I don't know what your politics are! Maybe you're an arms dealer, how should I know!
[12/1/2014 9:31:52 PM] Josie: He's managed to cut himself trying to get out of the zipties, and he's bleeding a bit. Still smells *great*.
[12/1/2014 9:32:02 PM] Josie: But today you're not half-starved!
[12/1/2014 9:32:51 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft grabs the crowbar, then lifts the chair up to right him.
[12/1/2014 9:34:11 PM] Josie: Easily done! He grunts a bit.
[12/1/2014 9:35:06 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft leaves him in the room and looks for Rose!
[12/1/2014 9:37:32 PM] Josie: Rose is in an adjacent room--a bedroom. Also fairly open, mostly white and light colors. She's sitting at the desk with her laptop, typing, but looks up when Ry comes in.
[12/1/2014 9:37:48 PM] Rycroft: So, you get all that?
[12/1/2014 9:38:29 PM] Josie: Rose: Yes. Interesting, hm? I don't want to start a war. Especially not now.
[12/1/2014 9:39:37 PM] Rycroft: I'm much more concerned with the whole 'we can sense where she is' thing.
[12/1/2014 9:40:20 PM] Josie: Rose: Mmm. Indeed. Of course, once she's here, magic *should* prevent that.
[12/1/2014 9:40:42 PM] Rycroft: Here?
[12/1/2014 9:41:19 PM] Josie: Rose: Yes, here. I've had the house enchanted fairly thoroughly. You *did* say you didn't mind moving.
[12/1/2014 9:42:37 PM] Rycroft: True.
[12/1/2014 9:42:53 PM] Rycroft: What are you going to do with Prince Charming?
[12/1/2014 9:43:52 PM] Josie: Rose: You're not going to like my suggestion.
[12/1/2014 9:46:17 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft facepalms. "Besides all the stuff with me and not wanting 'designated fae babysitter' to become my new job title, putting him in the same house with her is just *asking* for trouble. That I'll have to deal with."
[12/1/2014 9:47:02 PM] Josie: Rose: You'll still have Tess. And... aren't you curious?
[12/1/2014 9:47:13 PM] Josie: Rose: More to the point, if he sees she's fine and not being held or coerced, he might go away.
[12/1/2014 9:47:31 PM] Rycroft: And when he sees that she's now one of the living dead?
[12/1/2014 9:48:06 PM] Rycroft: And he goes away? And tells everyone in Fairyland?
[12/1/2014 9:49:29 PM] Josie: Rose: You say that like it's a bad thing.
[12/1/2014 9:49:55 PM] Josie: Rose: It obviously hasn't made her *not* a Greensinger before. And besides, *we're* not the ones that did it. And she knows it.
[12/1/2014 9:50:24 PM] Rycroft: I thought you *didn't* want word getting back. That's why Faye is still living with me, remember?
[12/1/2014 9:51:19 PM] Josie: Rose: I don't. Until and unless we know what word will get back. I'd suggest leaving him tied to a chair.
[12/1/2014 10:00:06 PM] Rycroft: I still suspect that this is all just a reality show you're secretly filming.
[12/1/2014 10:00:18 PM] Josie: Rose laughs.
[12/1/2014 10:00:37 PM] Josie: Rose: What would we call it?
[12/1/2014 10:01:05 PM] Josie: Rose: I like the idea, though.
[12/1/2014 10:01:19 PM] Josie: She stands up and twines her arms around Ry.
[12/1/2014 10:01:37 PM] Rycroft: Of course you would like it, you're not the hapless star.
[12/1/2014 10:03:21 PM] Josie: Rose: But think of the product sales. You could have your face on a T-shirt.
[12/1/2014 10:03:48 PM] Rycroft: that sounds awful.
[12/1/2014 10:04:53 PM] Josie: Rose: Coffee-cups. Tents. Pencils. The marketing opportunities are endless.
[12/1/2014 10:05:57 PM] Rycroft: .... tents? And still no.
[12/1/2014 10:07:07 PM] Josie: Rose: Why not? Cellphone cases, your own brand of liquor, car accessories...
[12/1/2014 10:07:26 PM] Josie: Rose: It'll be the new Duck Dynasty.
[12/1/2014 10:11:42 PM] Josie: Rose: You'll look wonderful in camo.
[12/1/2014 10:12:17 PM] Rycroft: Maybe I'll just kill him with a crowbar.
[12/1/2014 10:14:12 PM] Josie: Rose: Don't do that. Look, how about this. I'll come back here tonight, and if he's not playing nice by then, I'll put him somewhere else.
[12/1/2014 10:14:48 PM] Josie: Rose: It's those damn sad puppy eyes of yours, Ry. That shouldn't work for vampires. It's not right.
[12/1/2014 10:18:04 PM] Josie: Rose: Especially when one's a kitten eye anyway.
[12/1/2014 10:20:26 PM] Rycroft: ... it's not that I'm worried about him, not really. I'm just worried that it's going to keep happening.
[12/1/2014 10:21:07 PM] Josie: Rose: Not if you keep her in the house.
[12/1/2014 10:21:22 PM] Josie: Rose: Nothing from outside can see in here.
[12/1/2014 10:23:35 PM] Rycroft: It doesn't matter. Yes, it'll help. But eventually another will find out about her. And another.
[12/1/2014 10:24:06 PM] Josie: Rose: Well they can't all stay here. I still wonder what this one wants with our Lizard.
[12/1/2014 10:24:35 PM] Rycroft: And I can't keep her in the house forever.
[12/1/2014 10:25:22 PM] Josie: Rose: No, of course not. Certainly not more than a year or two, at any rate. Hopefully she'll have the rules down well enough and control over any powers she has--has she got any--by that point to not be a danger to anyone, including herself.
[12/1/2014 10:27:32 PM] Rycroft: You really think we'll be able to go a year without another faerie or some other monstrosity coming along to screw with any plans we might have?
[12/1/2014 10:27:50 PM] Josie: Rose: ... I know you better than that.
[12/1/2014 10:28:20 PM] Josie: Rose: But I know you can keep her safe, however you do it. Try not to crowbar that guy, but if you have to, call me afterward.
[12/1/2014 10:36:46 PM] Rycroft: When will the movers be moving?
[12/1/2014 10:37:23 PM | Edited 10:37:32 PM] Josie: Rose: They should be packing things up now, actually. I let Tess know.
[12/1/2014 10:39:46 PM] Rycroft: ... I liked that apartment.
[12/1/2014 10:40:32 PM] Josie: Rose: I know. You can go back to it, you know. Once this war business is put to bed.
[12/1/2014 10:44:16 PM] Rycroft: ... I don't know.
[12/1/2014 10:44:26 PM] Rycroft: I need a cage for a rat.
[12/1/2014 10:44:45 PM] Josie: Rose: Big, small, luxe or portable?
[12/1/2014 10:45:15 PM] Rycroft: Big. But iron would be good to keep Faye out.
[12/1/2014 10:48:34 PM] Josie: Rose: I'll make arrangements, then.
[12/1/2014 10:49:03 PM] Josie: Rose: ... and I'll see you tonight. Don't worry about the movers, by the way. They won't blink at seeing a man tied up in your living room.
[12/1/2014 10:49:47 PM] Rycroft: Rycroft nods.
[12/1/2014 10:50:26 PM] Josie: Rose kisses him, or tries to. She'll back off if he's not interested, though.
[12/1/2014 10:56:17 PM] Rycroft: He kisses her back, lightly. More distracted than upset.
[12/1/2014 10:56:55 PM] Josie: Rose: Mm. I'll see you later. And hopefully I'll have some more information then. We'll see.
[12/1/2014 10:57:01 PM] Josie: She heads out!
