Subject: Contrary to last time, I actually don't like Daniel Day Lewis.


Update is up.

You are in the blue room. It is busy.

The guy in the trenchcoat is Finn's character, who is still absent but assuming he comes back I want to keep him in the game so I'll be NPCing or something in the time being.

Questions?

Topic: Tales of City Fantastico
Subject: I swear to god this better get us to page 6.


The Australians were out of the picture, the ice cream truck was in park and Downhouser had renewed his efforts to dent the ceiling of the groups transport with his thickened skull, so for a brief moment everything seemed relatively normal. The group listened intently to Katie and Vitali detail the nature of their opposition, and assembled whatever gear they thought might be required in the coming moments. That turned out mostly to be guns. A lot of guns.

Disembarking, they began to cross the street as a group, Katie and Downhouser led the way arm in an arm, like a couple that would surely never be able to use a teeter-totter appropriately, while Percy and Vitali followed just behind. They made eye contact with the “tisbuhs” about as they approached, and for a moment it sounded like the opening chords of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly’s theme were being played. In fact they add, and a quick look down the street revealed a small orchestra had formed a block away, seemingly drawn by the drama of the situation. They just as quickly dispersed as they were noticed, leaving only the surreal memory of their appearance and few sheets of music blowing in the wind.

With the gravity of the situation now defined through the medium of instrumental awesomeness, the group continued their slow progression across the street. They felt somehow compelled to take it slow and meaningfully, and due to their newfound badassery, the journey across the street took several seconds longer than it should, which would probably seem unimportant in the long run but is an interesting thing to note at this exact moment. They finally stood in front of the bouncers, with only Downhouser truly seeing eye to eye with them, and for a moment there was a quiet staredown. Katie finally broke the silence.

“McDonnell.”

The tisbuhs stared at her a moment before one of them produced the list, once again concealed behind his enormous bicep. His eyes scanned up and down the list before looking over at his partner, who nodded silently. A strange sensation swept over the group, as if they were being patted down by hundreds of swift invisible hands. The feeling passed as swiftly as it had begun, and the tisbuh turned back to his partner.

”They have guns.” he uttered emotionless.
”Which ones?” the second asked, though it sounded more like a statement than a question.

The tisbuh gestured at Downhouser, ”A couple.” his fingered drifted toward Katie, ”A couple more.” his finger finally came to a rest on Vitali, ”He has an armory in his pants.”

The second tisbuh nodded solemnly before looking at Percy (who was talking to… a tiny snowman?). ”Him?”

The first tisbuh paused before answering, and though it wasn’t overly present in his voice, his confusion was obvious.

”He is carrying ice cream.”

Another solemn nod was shared by the tisbuhs and they turned back to Katie. One of them seemed to be about to speak before both suddenly put a hand up to their earpiece for a moment. Out of the corner of his eye, Vitali thought he noticed the lens of the camera off to the side shift in their direction before both tisbuhs gave a solemn nod and one of them reached over and opened the door.

”Welcome to the Blue Room Ms. McDonnell and guests. Enjoy your time inside.”

Although wary of the sudden hospitality, the group decided not to inspect the teeth of this immaculate gift horse and made their way inside.

~~~~~~


As the group entered, the tisbuh closed the door firmly and looked over at his compatriot, letting out a slow breath.

”Weird.” he said expressionlessly.
”Yep, weird.” the second agreed.

”OI! FACK YOU’S MATES!” the yell, thick with horrid Australian accent, rang out from the alley across the street.

The tisbuhs sighed, and one reached into his pants and withdrew a pack of smokes, popping one out and lighting it as a garbage can, seemingly of its own volition, rose off the street corner and made its way over to the alley where it began throwing itself violently into a yelping semi-prone, Australian-sounding form there.

”We don’t get paid enough to deal with Australians and ice cream.” the first tisbuh said between drags.
”Amen.” the second added.

~~~~~~


Chapter 1.5: And That’s Why They Call it the Blues…Room, They Call it the Blue Room.

It was akin to entering Narnia, the group had stepped through a non-descript door on a non-descript brick building and found themselves in a bar rat’s paradise. There was no hint of a misnomer here; the Blue Room was blue, from curtains to carpets, booth to stools, and lighting to uniforms. The entry opened onto a descending staircase that led directly into the main room of the club, which seemingly had been extensively renovated since any of the group had been there last.

A large wooden bar dominated their view to the right, its stools filled with a variety of characters, the partially walled off section to their right was filled with slot machines, the bings, bloops and bright lights barely heard over the strange electro-hip hop-dubstep-old school throwback-classic rock that was blasting out of a speakers the group couldn’t quite locate. The floor between the two areas was evenly divided between cards tables on the left and dining tables on the right, and a swirl of gamblers, drunks and waitresses milled about between them. Directly across the room from the entry stood a stage, its long blue curtains drawn shut, immediately preceded by a large dance floor that even at this distance smelled of sweat.

Though the club was packed, people stood out to the group. There was a man sitting at the bar, his long trench coat immediately causing him to stand out. Though it was obvious he’d noticed the group, he gave no outward indication that he noticed them, even as they could feel his eyes on them. There were thugs not unlike those they’d encountered previously grouped together at numerous tables, their lack of hostility towards the team likely explained by the drinks in front of them dominating their attention. Over at the slots, Daniel Day Lewis sat in front of a machine, cursing and swearing at his recent run of bad luck. Being an insufferable method actor and incapable of getting into a role otherwise, poor Daniel had gotten into the skin of a loser alcoholic gambler, and following the fall of order in Fantastico, had been forced to shutter production without completion, leaving him trapped in an assumed life. A sad fate to be sure, but he was overrated anyway.

As the team scanned the room, a waitress in a short blue skirt and barely there top swept up to them, and before they could even react to her presence she had them ushered into a comfy leather booth just off the bar. Before they could even question their situation the waitress had disappeared, leaving them alone in the thick of it. The music was blaring, the crowd was pumping and there seemed to be debauchery every which way. If they were going to find a dealer with connections this seemed like the place.

(OOC: Fun fact, wrote paragraph two while on the toilet. See Q&A for anything and use it for questions and answers and planning and dancing and planning! And Dancing!)

Will have something up by the end of the weekend.

Christmas led to New Years led to Inventory Week.

I've logged 50 hours in four days with one to go. Grind out an update on a weekend.

The only good thing about no TNF is that I don't have to panic pick thursday morning when I realise I've forgotten.

I'll get some in for the weekend.

Just thought I'd mention, that though it doesn't mean you're not, the only one I expressly mentioned was on that list was Finn's character.

And I should note, Fantastico doesn't expressly know where you're going, other than that they know where you're going to send characters to meet you to join the party because MAGIC FOURTH WALL BREAKING ALL MY PLAYERS ARE MISSING SO I HAVE TO BRING IN NEW ONES happens sometimes.

I blame Bob, really.

Finn has gotten a message to me, he will be unable to post for a short while, which is fine given the situation. Still looking around for almost everyone else.
