Kar's Bookshop

This is the second time I have lost massive text to a forum fail in one night.  I blame gremlins.  As such, no location text yet.  But I'll edit it in.

--------
Kar is here, and thinking about dusting.  It is quite dusty here.
Who

Erou takes the initiative and begins dusting.
Obscurejones

Kar heads to the front ans starts tearing out walls to make room for a main floor.
Who

Erou grins as she watches him rip down masonry.

"Didn't know you still had it in you."
Obscurejones

Home renovation?
Who

She shifts her form, jabbing one of her blade-limbs in to the wall for good measure.

"Wrecking stuff."
Obscurejones

It's... Constructive.  Not the mindless fury I had before.
Who

"Well it's a start."
Obscurejones

Kar quietly resumes his work, hoping she means a start in the direction of moderation and peace.
Who

She does not. Though she does help him with the whole constructive breaking stuff.
Obscurejones

In that case I'm certain they finish in admirable time.  After which Kar begins to look through the house to find a living space he can cordon off.
Who

Erou gets back to dusting, pondering ways to draw Kar off the straight and narrow.
Obscurejones

After a montage of tidying and some construction, Kar now has an empty storefront attached to a small second story apartment.  He goes to retrieve Erou and show her the bedroom.

(She could always try and drug him.  Or just curtain him evil.)
Who

"Nice work."

I'm fairly sure sleeping with someone is not how morality works.
Obscurejones

It's a powerful alignment shifter.
Thanks.  I'm hoping I can find a wholesaler in town.  If not I'll raid the library.
Who

"There's an abandoned place round here you could loot."
Obscurejones

And I'd rather not steal.
Who

"Why? It's not like you wouldn't use them."
Obscurejones

He grumbles softly at her under his breath.
Who

Erou shifts, trying to loop an arm round Kar's and tug him towards the door.

"Come on, it'll be fun."
Obscurejones

Kar grabs her by the wrist and pushes her against the wall, hanging her from her arm, her feet a few inches from the ground.
I said no.
Who

She grins, her mood greatly improved by Kar's show of force.

"Well maybe I'll just go on my own then."
Obscurejones

In a blur he switches grips, holding her to the wall by her throat, lifting her up another few inches.
No.
Who

"Who's going to stop me? Some bookish nerd?"
Obscurejones

Kar smiles just slightly and then throws her through the wall opposite the one she's pinned to with an admirable backhanded toss.
Who

Erou shifts moments before she impacts on the the wall. Collapsing on the ground with a satisfied sigh.
Obscurejones

Kar walks over and kneels beside her.  Grins, showing a mouth full of fangs.
Feeling a little less larcenous?
Who

Erou'd grin back but she's a giant doll right now, makes facial expression a tad difficult.

"Not if that's the only way to get your attention."
Obscurejones

He shrugs, tracing a finger over her  to check for cracks.
Who

There's a messy pattern of spiderweb cracks running all over her back where she impacted with the wall.

"Well?"
Obscurejones

He smiles warmly at her, fangs fading.
You're fine to shift back.
Twisted Evil
Who

She shifts, attempting to stand up and dust herself off.
Obscurejones

He runs a claw down her back to see what became of the cracks.
Who

She shudders, pressing against the claw. The scars now painting the entirety of her back an angry red.
Obscurejones

He traces a spiderweb across the red.
Who

She groans pleasurably,  shivering as Kar goes about his work.
Obscurejones

His hands shift to a matched set of claws, dancing delicately over her back.
Who

Erou's not going to interrupt him, staying stock still.
Obscurejones

When he's done he looks over his handiwork critically.
Remember when we did this with molten gold?
Who

She nods, a familiar look of fear playing over her face.
Obscurejones

He laughs and kisses her.
Shift.  I brought some glazes.
Who

She does as commanded, bracing herself against the wall.
Obscurejones

He fills in the cracks with a fast drying... Doll making substance.  Yes.  That thing.  That exists.
Who

Well this totally sounds legit.

"Are you done?"
Obscurejones

I think so.
Who

Erou shifts, trying to kiss him.

----

As it would happen Elyea sticks her head through the door at the same time.

"Kar."
Obscurejones

Kar yelps as Elyea walks in, leaping out of the kiss and up to the ceiling.  Looks around wildly.
Who

Elyea hollers back out the door to Ary.

"Found him!"

"Who the hell are you?"
Obscurejones

Kar hangs from the ceiling by his feet.
Elyea, Erou.  Erou, Elyea.
Metakirb

And Ary walks in.
Obscurejones

And that's Ary.  Her and Elyea are sort of a matched set these days.
Who

Erou's ever so slightly shocked, taking on a broad grin as she remembers her first few encounters with Elyea.

"Charmed."

"Whatever. Kar, Mum's looking for you and she is maaaaad."
Obscurejones

Kar walks over to one of his books and pulls out a page.  Sketches down a quick note with the tip of his finger.
Here.  This should help.
Who

Elyea takes the note, reading it.
Obscurejones

He snatches it back.  Folds it.
For mom.  And only mom.  Got it?
Who

"Fine, I promise I wont read it."

Totally got her fingers crossed behind her back.
Obscurejones

Ely, I'm serious about this.  Mom's eyes only.  It's important.
Who

See, all this is just making her want to read it more.

"Okay, I promise. No one else'll read it."
Obscurejones

Kar reluctantly hands it over.
Who

Elyea pockets it, still fairly intent on reading it.

"So what are you doing here?"
Obscurejones

Hopefully setting up a bookshop.  Maybe a library.  It's not like money really matters.
Who

"Yeah...where does our money come from?"
Obscurejones

Crafting, agriculture, the occasional rare find.  The castle's basically it's own resource rich nation.
Who

"Oh, okay. We should probably get going."
Obscurejones

Also, Nadine used to kill people.  But Elyea doesn't need to know that. Very Happy

Kar nods and makes a shooing motion.
Who

Elyea gives him a quick hug, before turning and heading for the door. I assume Ary'll follow, good little sidekick that she is.
Metakirb

Ary does indeed follow.
Obscurejones

And Kar... Sighs.
Who

Erou hugs him from behind, wrapping her arms round his shoulders.

"She's grown up."
Obscurejones

He tenses at the comment.
Who

"Awwww, come on. Relax."
Obscurejones

She's important to me.
Who

"I can guess why."
Obscurejones

A claw flicks up to rest against her throat.  She can hear the shift between Kars.
Speak carefully, pet.
Who

She grins, finding out how far she can push Kar is quickly becoming her new favourite game.

"I saw her be created you know."
Obscurejones

You saw a thing conjured by magic.  Elyea is my sister.  She is a person, not a product.  You will treat her accordingly.
The claw twists and warps, a razor sharp ribbon winding around Erou's neck and trailing down her spine.
Who

She nods her head ever so slightly, very much aware of how easy it would be for Kar to kill her right now.
Obscurejones

The claw slowly begins to retract, slithering across Erou's skin.
Obscurejones

The claw slowly begins to retract, slithering across Erou's skin.
Who

She relaxes a little, shivering slightly as the claw retracts.

"What ever happened to that guy anyway? The one that made the body?"
Obscurejones

He pissed off to where ever it was he came from and the world was a better place for it.  Good riddance to bad rubbish.
He takes a deep breath and begins to turn back into himself.
I suppose we do owe him for giving us Elyea though.
Who

"You've really changed haven't you? Is that still a no on the library looting?"
Obscurejones

If it's abandoned feel free.
Who

She nods, idly shifting shapes.

"More or less."
Obscurejones

He waits till she's flesh to blur a hand out and pull her close.
Erou, no killing.  Or Maiming.
Who

"Fine...what's even the point of going then?"
Obscurejones

He grins and pulls her close to whisper in her ear.
To make me happy.  And don't you want me happy?
He nips at her ear with freshly grown fangs.
Who

Sneaky sneaky Kar, Erou nods a little, shivering and presses against him as he goes about his work.

"No killing..."
Obscurejones

He works his way down to nibble at her neck, drawing a little blood.
Or maiming.  And I'll be very happy with you.
Who

A quiet gasp escapes her throat as the blood trickles down her neck.

"Okay..."
Obscurejones

He smiles with just a little blood dripping from the corner of his mouth.
Good girl.  I'll be waiting.
Who

She shifts, dropping to the ground and scuttling out of the door on her blades.
Obscurejones

Kar waits until he's certain she's out of the building before going to one of the bathrooms to brush his teeth.
Who

Sneaky bastard! Pretending to be cruel and sadistic to manipulate Erou.
Obscurejones

That is a weirdly delightful sentence and indicative of why I like this forum.

In any case once that's done he starts setting up bookshelves.
Who

It'll take several hours but she eventually comes back, flesh and blood, dragging several tied sacks behind her.
Obscurejones

And no one was hurt?
He walks over to grab a sack and untie it.
Who

It's full of books! BOOKS!

"Golems don't count right?"
Obscurejones

They do not.  Good girl.
He starts unloading and sorting them onto the shelves.
Who

Erou plops herself down on one of the sacks and watches him work.
