Who

Dawn's (and John's) Place VIII

A derelict double decker red bus leaning against some collapsed masonry in a vaguely defined part of the Town. Outside is a very deep hole, about big enough for a person, a sign by it claims that it's a work in progress.

-----

Aurora, hopefully followed by Libris heads up to the bus.

"Hello!? Anyone home?"
Obscurejones

Nope.  Nobody' here.
The_Librarian

"This is... this isn't what I expected.  What is that thing?" Libris asks, pointing at the bus.
Who

"It's a bus. Oh yeah, you don't...don't worry about it. Doesn't look like anyone's home."
The_Librarian

"In that case, I think I'll return to Quinn's, see if Jonah's... returned there, and then head to Trog's."
Who

"Okay, I'll leave her a note in case she comes back."
The_Librarian

"Good plan," Libris replies.
Who

Aurora starts scribbling a note in wierd circley script.
Who

Well looky here, who's that stumbling towards the bus singing sea shanties? It's Dawn! What are the odds?
The_Librarian

Libris puts a hand on Aurora's shoulder.

"Wait, someone's coming."
Who

"Dawn?"

"Hey robot me! Wait...you're not a robot anymore...or a me. How's that working out for you?"
Obscurejones

An elegantly armored figure walk out of the bus carrying a syringe.  Heads for Dawn.
The_Librarian

Libris narrows her eyes suspiciously at the figure heading for Dawn.  She has a natural mistrust these days of anyone more elegantly armoured than herself.
Who

Aurora steps infront of the armoured figure. Not trusting her inebriated sister to defend herself.

"Who are you?"
Obscurejones

It's me,  Aurora.  Remember?  Just going to see If we can't flush the alcohol out of your sisters system.  Should make her easier to be around.
Who

Aurora squints.

"John?"
Obscurejones

He nods and starts trying to find a vein on Dawns arm.
Who

Dawn is not cooperative

"Get off! I've already had the plague! You can't get it twice! John! Help, I'm being inoculated!"
Obscurejones

Dawn, if you don't hold still I'm letting the pig paint your bus fuchsia.
Who

"John? Did you get a haircut?"
Obscurejones

He nods, keeps looking for a vein.  Glances at Libris.
Sorry about this.  She's been a little off lately.
The_Librarian

Libris frowns, and then draws her sword.

"It'd be fair to describe me as quite paranoid, but I'd like to try questioning Dawn before you inject her with whatever that is.  I only ask for a couple of minutes."
Obscurejones

He nods and pulls back.
The_Librarian

Libris sheathes her sword again and smiles apologetically.

"My daughter... my daughter is quite possibly dead.  The ultimate culprit is someone called the Crystal Guardian.  Aurora says her sister knows a bit more about said guardian than she does."  She turns to Dawn.  "So Dawn, do you know why the Crystal Guardian would be catching people and feeding off their fear?"
Who

Dawn leans slightly to the side.

"Have we met?"

---

Aurora looks at John.

"You regenerated again?"
Obscurejones

He thinks.
I might have.  What did I look like last you saw me?
The_Librarian

Libris shakes her head.

"No, I don't think we have," she says, and offers her hand to shake.  "My name's Libris.  I'm a paladin and former librarian.  I have-" She hesitates.  "Two daughters, Jonah and Jamin, who are friends of Aurora's."
Who

"And the Crystal Guardian napped them? No games, something to with fear...cause he is supposed to represent dreams so I guess nightmares, which at a stretch could be fear. Must have got a new one."

----

"Sort of younger."
Obscurejones

Nope.  It's just a haircut.  And some new gear.
The_Librarian

"A new one?  A new what?"
Who

"See this is the clever bit, I may not have paid attention in this class at the academy but I got one of the dorky kids at the front to give me a copy of their notes. There always has to be one of each Guardian, but they can be killed. When tey are the power gets given to someone else and get the job. Must be some new kid trying out a different aspect of the powers."
The_Librarian

"How can they be stopped?"
((And it's g'night from me, I'm afraid))
Who

"Own realm? Impossible, here if you got a big load of antimagic, or just hit them really really really hard you could totally do it. End of the day though who ever it is has got the whole multiverse to play with, you'll probably never see them again."
The_Librarian

Libris hangs her head.

"Probably's not as good as definitely, but I think it'll have to do for now.  Thanks for your, help, Dawn."
Who

"No problem. Drink?"

She gets up and starts rummaging through a cupboard.
The_Librarian

"I'll pass - I've probably drunk a bit too much in recent days," Libris replies ruefully.  "What was that gentleman going to inject you with?"
Who

"Not a clue, my boyfriend'd totally know though. He's a doctor or something."
Obscurejones

John walks in.
So, done talking to Dawn?  Kinda need to get her sober.
The_Librarian

Libris nods, but still looks a little concerned.  She wishes she knew what was in the syringe, but as Dawn doesn't seem to be trying to escape it, she decides she'd best allow it to happen.

"Thanks for your patience.  I appreciate it," Libris says to John.
Obscurejones

It's fine.  And this...
He taps the syringe.
Is just a detoxification compound.  Sort of a chemical Cleanse Poison spell.
Who

"You never let me have any fun."
Obscurejones

He laughs and starts looking for a vein.
The_Librarian

"I'd best head back to Quinn's.  I think there's nothing left to do now but head back to Trog's and hope for the best.  Aurora?  Are you staying here or heading off to Trog's or Quinn's?"
Who

"I better go check on Quinn, I said I'd go back."

Dawn starts rambling whilst John looks for a vein.

"Honestly, if it was up to you I'd be chained to the kitchen, and I've tried that, it's not fun. Well it is for a few minutes but then you have to scratch your nose.."
Obscurejones

He nods slightly and jabs the needle into her arm, emptying the contents.
The_Librarian

((Very Happy darn itchy noses!))

Libris winces as Dawn is injected, and nods at Aurora.

"Perhaps she's found some more... practical clothing?" Libris asks, raising her eyebrows and heading back towards the apartment.
Who

"I hope so."

Aurora follows her. I assume the stuff in the syringe was what he said it was?
Obscurejones

And a mild pick me up.  Should take the edge off of a bad mood.
Who

"John? You look different."
Obscurejones

He nods.
Had a run around with the boys.  New shirt.
Who

"What happened?"
Obscurejones

My old one kept getting ripped.  How've you been?  Besides drunk.
Who

"No, that's about it. Had a chat with that angel that killed me."
Obscurejones

That's nice.  Seen the pig about?  He's been gone since I've been back.
Who

"I through him in the hole twice. Checked there?"
Obscurejones

He nods.
Who

"Not a clue then, he'll come back next time we have pancakes."

Dawn gets up and heads for the stairs.
Obscurejones

He starts to follow.  tries to grab her arm before she gets too far.
Who

She's grabbed and turns to look at him.

"Hmm?"
Obscurejones

He tries to kiss her passionately.  If he can't he's willing to settle for just kissing her. Razz
Who

She returns it with not quite as much enthusiasm as him, she needs a nap.
Obscurejones

Missed you.
Who

"Think it was longer for you, but missed you too."
Obscurejones

He smiles and tries to kiss her again.
Who

She returns it and tries to lead him upstairs.
Obscurejones

He follows her up.
Who

She dumps her top and skirt on a bench and burrows in to the cushion pile for a nap.
Obscurejones

He removes his armor and lies down next to her.
Who

"You keeping the armour?"
Obscurejones

He nods slightly.
Who

She smiles and hugs him, shutting her eyes.
Obscurejones

He returns the hug.
Who

She happily drifts off to sleep.
Obscurejones

He rests.
(deadtime)
Who

Dawn sleeps making a series of small noises in the process.
Obscurejones

John smiles at the noises.
Who

Eventually they stop, though she remains asleep.
Obscurejones

He happily lies next to her.
Who

At somepoint I guess she's going to wake up, yawning and rubbing her eyes. She rolls over and smiles at John.
Obscurejones

He smiles back, kissing her on the nose.
Who

"Sleep well?"
Obscurejones

He nods slightly.  Tries to kiss her.
Who

She returns it before rolling back over to look at the ceiling.

"Where did you go before?"
Obscurejones

Order business.
Who

"Ooo, what?"
Obscurejones

Had to go beat the bad guy.
Who

"Lucky, I never get to do that anymore."
Obscurejones

He frowns just slightly.
It's not everything it's cracked up to be.
Who

"Why what happened?"
Obscurejones

He shrugs.  Tries to kiss her.
Who

"Tell me.."
Obscurejones

Bad guys tend to hurt people.
Who

"Well yeah, that's what makes them bad. They didn't hurt you did they?"
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
I'm fine.
Who

"That's the important bit."
Obscurejones

He smiles and tries to kiss her again.
Who

She returns it, cuddling up to him.
Obscurejones

They cuddle for a little while.  John tries to get up.
Who

Dawn doesn't stop him, burrowing further in to the cushion pile to keep warm now that he's gone.
Obscurejones

He heads for the shower.
