The Celestial Toyroom II

Intradimensional home of the Celestial Toymaker. Where he keeps his toys and plays games to amuse himself across the eons.

-----

"You said had I picked a car."

----

Dei smiles and goes to stand by Kelri as the Toy Maker reappears.

"The game is yours."

----

Erou pulls the curtain.
Obscurejones

And the act what is it than?  Any ideas?
Metakirb

One hit? no wonder you wanted your powers. Good work kitty.

She moves to look for Jeska.

When the curtain rises Jeska has her arms round Erou.
Who

"I'm going to dance."

----

Dei follows Kelri, looking slightly disappointed.

----

Erou's holding Jeska tightly, she kisses her on the forehead.
Metakirb

love you.
Obscurejones

Dance?  You know the lambada is still forbidden right?
He does his best to shimmy.
What type of dance?  Will we be letting the tykes into this tent?
Who

"I'll take care of you."

---

Dei rubs up against Kelri slightly as they're walking

----

The doll would scowl if her painted face allowed it.

"I don't do that sort of thing. Ask your whore instead."
Metakirb

i know you will.

Kelri gives Dei a little scratch behind the ear.
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Nah, she'd give them a show get us run out of town on a rail.  He ponders it.
Ballet than?
Who

Dei purrs happily as they walk.

----

"I was thinking maybe I could something with your girlfriend."

She shifts to her own dancer form as she's talking.
Metakirb

And Kelri reaches Erou and Jeska

Awww, don't you two look cute.

Jeska goes from looking happy to looking terrified.
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Remember we have to give the rubes enough that they believe it's magic but they don't know it is.
Who

"Awwww, you mean I can't?"

----

"What are you doing here!?"
Obscurejones

He looks thoughtful for a moment.
Can you dance ballet?  And what's your name?
Metakirb

Claiming my prize.

She smiles

My other half.

No, keep her away from me, i don't want to go.
Who

"I can dance anything you care to mention."

----

Erou jumps up.

"I won't let you take her!"
Obscurejones

Kar hears a noise on the wind but Pierrot is busy.
And the name?
Metakirb

You can't. She's my prize for beating the toymaker.
Who

As soon as she says that Erou shifts to doll and goes stock still.

"She is yours."

----

"Don't have one."
Metakirb

What?! No! you can't, please don't let her...

Too late.

She opens a portal.

In.

Jeska doesn't move.
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Are you all going to be like this?  Make one.  Something exotic but delicate.
Who

"We don't have names, we're forgotten. Why would we need them?"

----

"You must go, you are the prize."
Metakirb

Kelri Grabs Jeska wrist and drags her through the portal.
Obscurejones

To advertise.  Think of something to go before "The Porcelain Ballerina".  Actually that one might work on its own...  He hears that catch on the wind again.
Ugh.  Jack, make sure everyone's got a car, an act, and a name for the act.  I'll be back in a flash.
He starts running towards Erou and Jeska.
Who

"Righto boss."

----

Dei follows Kelri through, Erou won't start reacting until the portal is closed.
Metakirb

Which it closes after Dei goes through.
Obscurejones

Pierrot comes around the corner just in time to see it close and curses furiously.
You there.  Can you follow them?
Who

"Follow whom?"
Obscurejones

The girls and the... Cat?
Who

"She defeated the Toy Maker. That was her prize."
Obscurejones

I know.  I don't want to cheat her out of her prize.  I just want to talk to her about leasing it.
Who

"I can provide a portal."
Obscurejones

He throws his hands up.
Soon is better.  The train's nearly done.
Who

Erou shifts to dancer and sketches a seal in the ground leading to where ever Jeska is.
Obscurejones

Kar hops through it in full marionette form.
Who

Erou waits.
Obscurejones

Pierrot hops back out.
Who

"Where's Jeska?"
Obscurejones

He shakes his head.
I drew the line at getting shot for my art, or for her.
Who

"Who's got her?"
Obscurejones

Kelri and Dei.
Who

"Oh."

She wants to feel mad, she wants to hurl herself through that portal and save Jeska but she can't, something's stopping her.
Obscurejones

He shifts out of his motley into his human form and moves to hold her.
We'll get her back.  Not today or tomorrow but you'll see her again.
Who

Erou holds him tightly.

"Thank you."
Obscurejones

He kisses her on the forehead and holds her close.
Who

"Can I ask you something?"
Obscurejones

Yes.
Who

"I can't be with you and Jeska can I? You don't like it."
Obscurejones

You can.  You can do whatever you want.
Who

"Do you want me to stop? I don't want to lose you."
Obscurejones

He smiles.
You can't.  I'm tenacious like that.
Who

Erou smiles squeezing him tighter and trying to kiss him.
Obscurejones

He kisses her back.
Who

"Think we should go check on the train?"
Obscurejones

He sighs and shifts back into his clothes.
That would probably be a great idea.
Who

"You're great, you know that?"
Obscurejones

He sneaks a kiss under his mask to her.
I try to be.
He straightens up and shifts marionette.
And now business.
He starts towards the train.
Who

She kisses him back, once he mentions business she straightens up and shifts to doll. The train is now nice and shiny painted.
Obscurejones

He checks to see if anyone has painted their act on their car.
Who

Jack has, no one else.

"It looks nice."
Obscurejones

Out of curiosity what's Jack's act?
It'll have to do.  We leave tomorrow.
Who

Being a sentient Jack in the Box? Maybe some jokes?

"What are you going to do then?"
Obscurejones

He laughs.
I'll put on a show that's unforgettable.
He looks for an empty car.
Who

There's already one marked out for him, second to the back. The word Boss painted on the door.

"Wow, they must really like you."
Obscurejones

He checks it for booby traps and pranks.
Who

None, they really do like him, he's given them purpose.
Obscurejones

He smiles and checks his car for a bed.
Who

Yep, he's got a single bed a wardrobe and a desk, not bad hey?
Obscurejones

He hops onto the bed and shifts out of his motley.
This might actually work...
Who

Erou tries to squeeze on next to him.

"This was really nice, what you've done for them."
Obscurejones

He moves to make room.
I just hope it works.  None of them should ever have to go back to being forgotten.
(Battery induced Deadtime)
Who

It''ll probably be a bit of a squeeze.

"I still have to think of an act."
Obscurejones

He sighs again.
You'll think of something.
Who

"I guess that other doll's got dancing covered?"
Obscurejones

She does.  And I think she'd object to a duet.
Who

"Oh, umm....well that leaves me with not a lot then."
Obscurejones

He kisses her neck.
You'll think of something.
Who

She shivers and tries to kiss him.

"Don't suppose you need a beautiful assistant?"
Obscurejones

He kisses her back.
Well yeah, but where would I find one?
Who

"There could be one closer than you think."
Obscurejones

Nah, I think Jack would object to the outfits I'd suggest.
Who

"Well if he says no there's always me."

She cuddles up to him.
Obscurejones

He smiles.
Who

Erou's quite happy to stay where she is for now.
Obscurejones

As is Kar.  He falls asleep.
Who

Erou falls asleep shortly after, resting her head on Kar's chest.
Obscurejones

After a few hours he'll wake up.  If she's still asleep he'll shift to his snake form and try to get out of bed without waking her.
Who

Which he'll succeed at.
Obscurejones

Shifting to Pierrot he quietly exits the car and goes to check if everyone's on board.
Who

Yeppers. All the carts are painted and have names and acts on them. Everyone's adding knick naks to their rooms.
Obscurejones

He checks with each car in turn to make sure they're ready to go.
Who

And indeed they are.
Obscurejones

He walks to the front of the train and checks to amke sure they're on tracks.
Who

They're not. Where would they get tracks from?
Obscurejones

He laughs.
We'll just have to see now won't we?
He hops into the engine room and looks for a starter.
Who

I have no idea how a train works, so lets say there is one.
Obscurejones

Pierrot fires it up opens up the throttle.
(New thread for the carnival?)
Who

Go for it.
Obscurejones

Kar/Pierrot appears.
Who

They Toymaker is sitting at a table with a someone. He swivels his chair round and walks towards him.

"Yes?"
