Who

Dawn's place X

A house 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.

----

She nods and signs it Iris Magyrs.
Obscurejones

He tucks the clipboard under his arm and starts to walk away.
Who

And once his back is turned Dawn opens fire on him.
Obscurejones

The census taker goes down with a grunt a hole blasting in his shirt.  But notably, not in his him.  He starts to struggle back to his feet.  As he stands the horns sprout and his voice takes on a hollow guttural tone.
"I take this to mean you lied on the forms?"
Who

Dawn lets loose another volley toward the well what I assume is a demon.

"Where is he!?"
Obscurejones

The census taker rolls to the side and spits a column of fire at the doorway.
Who

Dawn hurls herself out the door, pressing herself against the ground, just avoiding it. She springs up and fires again.
Obscurejones

He growls and a line of icy blue flies from his eyes chilling the air in it's path.  The blasts dully impact on his skin, barely scorching him.
Who

"Where is he!?"
Obscurejones

He silently aims the icy gaze at her.
Who

Dawn charges towards him, loosing more fire at him. She's going to make him tell her if she has to.
Obscurejones

He lowers his head and charges to meet her in the middle, horns first.
Who

She slides as he begins to charge, hopefully avoiding the horn and tripping him.
Obscurejones

He sprawls across the earth.
"Ouchie."
Who

Dawn pushes the blaster in to his face.

"Last chance, or I get nasty."
Obscurejones

He smiles up at her.
"Where's who, miss?"
Who

Dawn attempts to shoot him in the face, not before setting her weapon to 'knock out' rather than kill of course.
Obscurejones

So it's set to stun?  Won't even pierce his skin.
Who

Has she got time to set it to kill and try again?
Obscurejones

He head-buts her in the gut.
Who

Dang, well down she goes clutching her stomach.
Obscurejones

He aims his icy gaze at her hands.
Who

She does her best to avoid it but it's going to get at least one hand.
Obscurejones

He looks for and runs towards the nearest shadow.
Who

Wait, what's happened to her hand?
Obscurejones

Hypothermia, locally applied.
Who

I'll have to look up what hypothermia actually does but she's got one hand free and fires at John's retreating goon.
Obscurejones

He ducks and dives through the shadow.  And hey, it might not be John.  Assumptions!
Who

Oh come on, it totally is.

"Little help here!"
Obscurejones

Steve wanders out with a noodle cup.  Eats some noodles.
Who

"Just got attacked by one of your dad's goons, don't look concerned or anything."
Obscurejones

Steve nods.
Got it. Can do.  Heck, doing.
Who

Dawn gets up and heads inside, she's going to need to soak her hand in warm water...I think.
Obscurejones

Steve follows her in.
Who

She fills a bowl with warm water and sits down, soaking her hand.
Obscurejones

Steve offers her some noodles.
Who

Dawn refuses them, mumbling and grumbling to herself. How's the pig doing?
Obscurejones

He is enjoying a noodle cup on the floor.
Who

"That can't be healthy..."
Obscurejones

He nods.  But it is noodly.
Who

That's not the point though.

"Wonder what he's planning...well to kill us probably. Any idea how I can get hold of Alex?"
Obscurejones

Steve thinks. Shakes her head.
Who

"Seriously? No clue?"
Obscurejones

She shrugs.
He's always been a wanderer.  Usually just shows up when he's needed.
Who

Dawn frowns

"When Christmas comes round I'm buying you all phones."
Obscurejones

Bacon looks up.  Him too?
Who

"Yes, you too."
Obscurejones

He does a backflip of joy.  He can text all his homies!
Who

He doesn't have any homies! Or fingers with which to text!

"Where does he normally hang about then?"
Obscurejones

Taverns?
Who

"Right, well I didn't see him at Trog's but there's got to be other taverns round here."
Obscurejones

Or... otherwhen...
Who

"Or what?"
Obscurejones

She gulps.
Alex can timejump.
Who

"And we can't...wait if he's still here I might be able to make contact."
Obscurejones

Steve shrugs.  She'll leave that to Dawn then.
Who

Dawn heads to her room, she's going to need quiet to do this.
Obscurejones

It's very quiet in her room.  Eerily silent.
Who

Good, she sits on the bed and shuts her eyes. Focusing, reaching out with her mind and trying to make telepathic contact with Alex.
Obscurejones

After a few minutes she'll find his mind.  It's fairly far off though.
Who

"Contact."

I doubt he'll even hear that, at that distance it's like trying to talk on a bad line.
Obscurejones

She'll feel a vague disquiet and then the line strengthening.
Yes?
Who

"Where are you?"
Obscurejones

She'll feel his annoyance at the question.
Elsewhere.  And yourself?
Who

"Home, just get over here."
Obscurejones

He laughs through the line.
No, I'm good.
Who

"That wasn't a request."
Obscurejones

And my answer wasn't a suggestion.
Who

"This is important! Don't make me come down there."
Obscurejones

Down where?
Who

"Just get over here!"
Obscurejones

The connection ceases.
Who

Dawn wanders back down stairs, she's going to find Steve and give her a hug.
Obscurejones

Steve is finishing her noodles in the kitchen.
Who

Well then, she is hugged.
Obscurejones

She squirms a little to be dehugged.
What's up?
Who

"Steve, you're the only one of my kids that isn't a complete jerk and, and that's just terrifying."
Obscurejones

Steve shoves her away and storms off to her room.
Who

Dawn shouts after her.

"In a good way!"
Obscurejones

Not why she's pissed but nice attempt.  Bacon looks up at Dawn. with a disappointed air.
Who

"What? What'd I do?"
Obscurejones

Bacon shakes his head.
Who

"Little hint?"
Obscurejones

He sighs and trundles towards the bedroom with all the boxes.
Who

Dawn follows him, still puzzled as to what she did wrong.
Obscurejones

He hauls out a framed photo of Edward, Alex and Steve, arms around each other smiling at the camera.  Taps Edward and then Steve.  And then Edward again.
Who

"She's mad at me because I don't like Edward?"
Obscurejones

He waggles a trotter in the universal sign for kinda.
Who

"I'm not apologising for that, he is a jerk."
Obscurejones

Bacon sighs again.  Shrugs.  Goes to put the photo away.
Who

Everyone's against her, Dawn's contemplating just getting smashed again.
Obscurejones

Bacon trots again and tries to comfortingly hug her leg.
Who

Dawn smiles down at him.

"Wanna come with?"
Obscurejones

He looks up questioningly.
Who

"I'm going to Trog's wanna come?"
Obscurejones

He thinks.  Nods reluctantly.
Who

She tries to scoop up the pig and head out.
Obscurejones

The pig is scooped and carried.
Who

Dawn returns, drunkenly looking for Steve.
Obscurejones

Steve is in her room seated at a sturdy wooden work bench.  She's fiddling with her latest gadget.
