Dawn's Place XI

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.

----

"Thanks. You don't have to sit here if you don't want you know."
Obscurejones

I like being around you.
Who

She smiles and reaches to hug him.

"You too."
Obscurejones

He returns the hug.
(deadtime)
Who

Dawn keeps up the hugging. Looking happily up at the ceiling.

"We should so go some of those places."
Obscurejones

We need a new travel method.  Boats and buses have turned out poorly for us.
Who

"The bus only ended badly 'cause you stole it."

That was kind of a low blow but she will not have someone speaking ill of her bus.
Obscurejones

John nods.
Like I said, it ended badly.
Who

"You know we could probably just grow a new one."
Obscurejones

Would it have to be a bus?
Who

"Not strictly speaking no, but there's nothing wrong with that. Is there?"
Obscurejones

He thinks for a moment.  Shakes his head.
Who

"Although...what would you say to a gazebo?"
Obscurejones

He looks slightly afraid.
Who

"Okay not hearing a lot of support for that, umm..."

She begins pondering other shapes their hypothetical transport could take.
Obscurejones

We could use a car.
As John speaks a plume of deadtime dust emits along with his words.
Who

Dawn grins as he responds, knocking over the pile of crosswords she'd been doing to pass the time.

"But there'd hardly be any space to work with."
Obscurejones

We could put a building in the trunk.
John shakes himself, dislodging yet more dust.
Who

"That could work, what sort of car were you thinking of?"
Obscurejones

He thinks, stroking the beard he grew during deadtime.
Something classic.  And weighty.  I imagine fuel economy isn't an issue.
Who

"It's really not. Ooo, what about one of those hippy vans?"

She cautiously pokes John's beard with one finger.
Obscurejones

IT's slightly springy to the touch and more than a little dusty.
Hippy Van!  With a weapons platform on top!
Who

"Sounds like a plan! You get the weapons and I'll grow the van."
Obscurejones

John nods and goes to talk to a similarly dust covered Steve in the basement.
Who

Dawn follows him, grabbing a feather duster on the way to dust people with.
Obscurejones

Steve is coughing up a storm.  Bacon, as he tends to be, is ominously missing.
Who

Dawn gives her a light dusting.

"Bacon!
Obscurejones

Steve tries to smack the duster away.

The air is oinkless.
Who

The duster persists. Dusty dusty dust.
Obscurejones

Steve bats at her again, looking for one of her death rays.
Who

Dawn relents, looks for anything else that needs a good dusting. She might as well, seeing as she's got the duster out and all.
Obscurejones

John's still a mite dusty.  And there is that stuffed young boar on the work table.
Who

Dawn walks over to dust the boar, expecting treachery of the highest magnitude.
Obscurejones

The boar snorts at her.
Who

Well it's being dusted regardless!

"It got you too?"
Obscurejones

Bacon nods.  She'll notice he's a bit larger and hairier than he was and now has small tusks.
Who

Dawn pokes one of the tusks and squeaks.

"That's new, you're actually growing."
Obscurejones

He nods and hops off the work bench.  Snuffles.  Sneezes.
Who

"D'awwww."

She turns back to John and Steve.

"So, what's the plan?"
Obscurejones

Steve gets to work on a couple of heavy duty ship to ship death ray cannons.

Steve'll build the guns.  You'll build the engine.  I'll mix em together.
Who

"So we're not even going to be subtle about it then? Big ol' death guns bolted to the sides?"
Obscurejones

John shakes his head.
Guns in a bubble on the roof.
Who

"So we're going for Death Pope-Mobile then?"
Obscurejones

Yes but without all the oppression of alternate lifestyles.
Who

"I dunno, Steve's death-rays. We could do quite a lot of oppressing."
Obscurejones

I was thinking we'd be the anti-oppressors.
Who

"Alright then! Lets go anti-oppress some people! With extreme prejudice."
Obscurejones

Bacon shakes his head.  he doesn't think she's getting it.
Who

Dawn looks around, not quite sure what she's done.

"What?"
Obscurejones

Peacefully most of the time, darlin'.
Who

"Peacefully with giant ray guns?"
Obscurejones

John and Bacon nod in unison.
Who

"I'll go get growing then."

Dawn heads for the stairs, pondering exactly how she's going to do this.
Obscurejones

John and Bacon pass the time having a staring contest.
Who

And Dawn's outside, literally getting a plot ready in which to grow their new van.
Obscurejones

Steve shoos John and Bacon so they go outside to watch their van grow.
Who

She's glaring at the patch of ground that she's chosen.

"Not going to work...hmm"
Obscurejones

They sit on the ground and watch her.
Who

"Can I help you with something?"
Obscurejones

They shake their heads.
Who

"Right, what do you think the odds of bits of the bus being where you left them?"
Obscurejones

Reasonably good.  Left them in a bombed out apocalypse. Not a whole lot of people swiping bus parts there.
Who

"Good, I need some of the core components to jump start the growing."
Obscurejones

John nods... Thinks... Frowns...

How do we get there if we can't get there without the bus?
Who

"Oh right, you can't do the whole smoochy-teleporty thing any more can you? Just holler when Steve's finished doing her thing. I'm going to need tools."
Obscurejones

We could try the smoochy port but I don't know if it would work with my reduced magic.
Who

"It's okay."

Dawn rolls up her none existent sleeves and marches off to find Steve, she needs to borrow some stuff.
Obscurejones

Steve's in the basement, at some point having de-dusted herself.  John and Bacon go inside for a shave and a haircut.
Who

"Mind if I borrow some stuff? I need a syringe, a microwave and whatever you've got that passes for a toolbox."
Obscurejones

Dad can do you a syringe.  Microwaves in the kitchen.
She digs around in her pocket and pulls out a sonic screwdriver. Hands it over.
Who

Dawn regards it carefully.

"Where'd you get this?"
Obscurejones

Swiped it off a poncey self righteous type, copied it, swiped it back.
Who

"Good girl, there's hope for you yet."

Off she marches to find John, locating the microwave on the way.
Obscurejones

Steve nods and goes back to working on the death bubble.
----------
John's in the bathroom, shaving with the edge of his sword.
Who

"Careful there, Steve says you can get me a syringe?"
Obscurejones

He digs around in his pocket and tosses her an empty syringe.
Who

"Thanks, see you downstairs."

Now for the last part of the plan, she's got to go fiddle with the microwave! Whoosh!
Obscurejones

John shaves, Steve builds.
Who

And Dawn rips apart appliances for her own nefarious purposes. Pretty soon the kitchen's covered in junk and filled with great flashes of light ever couple of seconds.
Obscurejones

That sounds unsafe.
Who

It is, extremely. It's also rather tingly. Dawn's sitting on the table, kicking her legs and waiting for it to finish up.
Obscurejones

Mmmmmmmmmm... Tingly.
Who

And with a quiet ping. It's all done! Dawn heads outside with her newly created spikey red glob and bury it in the ground.
Obscurejones

Steve goes to clean and repair the kitchen.  John walks out to watch the planting.
Who

"There we go, couple of hours and we're good to go."
Obscurejones

John nods and sits down to watch.  Bacon wanders out with a picnic basket hooked on his tusks.
Who

Dawn goes to sit next to him as metallic roots begin to sprout from the ground.

"Any ideas where to go?"
Obscurejones

We could go pick up the pieces of the bus.  Make sure they're accounted for.
Who

"We could do that, but we don't really need to now we've got this...I'm sure we'll find somewhere nice. Yeah no, lets go find the bus. Might be able to salvage something fun."
Obscurejones

John nods.  Bacon fishes a sandwich out of the basket.
Who

Dawn smiles and leans against John, reaching in to the basket for a sandwich of her own. The roots having started to take a rough van shape.
Obscurejones

John is sandwich-less but doesn't seem to mind.
Who

"You okay? You're a little quiet."
Obscurejones

He nods absentmindedly, seemingly lost in thought.
Who

Dawn looks to Bacon.

"Was he like this when he was with you?"
Obscurejones

Bacon shakes his head.  John gets up and starts to head inside.
Who

Dawn gets up to follow.

"John? Say something, you're freaking me out here."
Obscurejones

Keep an eye on the car, I've just got something I need to finish up before we set out.
Who

"And what's that?"
Obscurejones

Just some fiddling around in the lab.  A few minor self upgrades.
