The Plane of Fire

It's a dimension made more or less of fire.  There are a lot of volcanoes.  And Magma.  And it's rather warm.
Obscurejones

Al arrives at a small cafe in one of the larger cities in the plane and orders a Turkish coffee.
Metakirb

Jeska appears, and sits down opposite him, ordering a regular coffee. She looks a little nervous.
Obscurejones

A djinn waitress arrives with Al's drink and apologizes to Jeska that hers will take a little more time.
So... How is everyone?
Metakirb

fine. Is there a reason for this or is this just a social call?
Obscurejones

The second one.  I got to thinking about what you said and there's really no reason we can't be civil or even pleasant to each other.  Also thought you might like some coffee.
Metakirb

oh. well, okay then.
Obscurejones

The waitress arrives with Jeska's coffee.
Metakirb

Thank you.

She takes it and takes a sip.
Obscurejones

It's relatively good.  Al pays for their drinks and a tip, and the waitress leaves.  As  He looks ready to start up another line of conversation his coat beeps.
Metakirb

What's that?
Obscurejones

I'm not sure...
He pulls a small silver mirror out of his pocket and studies something in the reflection.
Nothing worth interrupting coffee for, apparently.
Metakirb

Okay.

She takes another sip of her coffee.
Obscurejones

He sips his coffee.
I should tell you though, that Erou's ruling just came through.
Metakirb

Her what?
Obscurejones

She's free.  Looks like she's opted to stay at your place for a while.
Metakirb

i already know, she told me herself.
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
I don't suppose Kar can ask for visitation on the weekends?  He waves it off.
Never mind, bad joke.
Metakirb

Very bad joke.
Obscurejones

Sorry.  Haven't had to interact with someone non-adversarialy in awhile.
Metakirb

Well it's nice to know you can.
Obscurejones

He smiles meekly from behind his mask.
Same to you.
Metakirb

She smiles.

You do haved a sense of humour then.
Obscurejones

His smile grows.
Sure, why not?
Metakirb

Well, I never would have pegged you as a nice person to be around.
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
I suppose I'll take that as a backhanded compliment.
Metakirb

Take it how you want.
Obscurejones

He laughs.
If you insist.
Metakirb

Well i do.

She grins.
Obscurejones

He finishes his coffee and rises, pushing back his chair.
As pleasant as this has been something tells me I should head home and make sure no one died while I was out.  Until next time?
Metakirb

Okay.
Obscurejones

He calls up a pair of portals and walks through one.  The other stays open.
Metakirb

She gets up and walks through the other.
Fathom

A third portal opens, just before the second closes.  Beyond, clear silvery sky can be seen, shining brightly.  The portal casts a sort of inverse shadow upon the floor, even amid all the firelight with which the cafe's interior is lit up.
Obscurejones

Jeska lands on a cot as Al and Erou come flying out of a hole in the wall.
Metakirb

Jeska lies there, still looking like she's in pain.
Who

More crying, she's clinging on to her toys for dear life.
Obscurejones

Al barks at Elyea.
Cease your mewling.
He starts crafting a divination to determine what's wrong with Jeska.
Metakirb

Jeska appears to have some sort of illness or fever.
Who

Oh yeah, that's really going to stop her crying....
Obscurejones

Al sighs and walks to a cupboard on the wall.  He pulls out a piece of bread and a small jar of honey.  After a few moments he has them encircled in chalk and closes the circle with a drop of blood.  As the pixies arrive he offers them two pizzas to entertain Elyea.  They agree.

A swarm of pixies move to comfort and entertain Elyea.
Who

Eventually that calms her down, she sits there, hugging her rabbit and being entertained by pixies.
Fathom

A beautifully contoured, mirror-surfaced face and long, flowing white hair appear against the silvery sky of the portal, peering curiously through into the cafe.

".....?"
Obscurejones

Al opens a portal to Dawn's and hops through.
---------------
A djinn waitress walks up to the portal.
Can I help you?
Metakirb

Jeska starts sweating.
Who

Elyea giggles, they're rather entertaining pixies.
Metakirb

Jeska slowly opens her eyes.
Obscurejones

John and Al walk out of the wall.
Didn't I already heal you?
Metakirb

She looks over slowly.

what?
Obscurejones

John starts with a few simple diagnostic runes.
Metakirb

It's some form of fever.

What're you doing? I'm fine. Just haven't gotten enough sleep recently...
Obscurejones

John clucks.
No, it's a fever. He weaves a rune to break the fever and determine the source.
Metakirb

The source of it he gets, When endlox stabbed her alot of heat was released into her body. Endlox simply didn't know this was going to happen, since nobodies ever survived it before. The fever lessens slightly, but doesn't break.
Obscurejones

Huh.  It's magic heat.  I can't break it.  If i had an ice mage I might be able to speed the process of healing though.
Metakirb

I can do ice  magic.
Obscurejones

I'm going to weave a net.  I need you to channel the ice through it.  Got it?
Metakirb

She nods.
Obscurejones

He waves his hands and runes start appearing over Jeska's body clustered around where the wound was.
Now.
Metakirb

She does so.
Obscurejones

Runes should distribute the cold to counter the heat, and keep the cold from damaging her already weak body.
Metakirb

that feels cold.
Who

"Mummy?"
Metakirb

I'm here.
Who

"Mummy!"

Elyea runs over to give her a hug.
Obscurejones

Al smiles.
Metakirb

She weakly hugs back.

Could you do me a favour Al?
Obscurejones

Entirely possible.
Metakirb

Could you get this letter to Erou?

She holds it out.
Obscurejones

He takes the letter.
How private is this?
Metakirb

I'd prefer it if only she were to read it. but it's not going to cause trouble if someone else does read it.
Obscurejones

He tucks it into his coat pocket.
Got it.
John looks around.
Anyone else?
Metakirb

Thank you.
Obscurejones

Yeah yeah yeah...  Home jeevesie.
A portal drops John back to the garden.
Keryn arrived while you were asleep at your house..  Will your home be safe?
Metakirb

Keryn?! how? Dei should have destroyed him...

She looks very scared.

No, it won't be safe. It's probably not safe here for long.
Obscurejones

Al looks worried.
Could my home wards keep him off?
Metakirb

Maybe. He doesn't have much in the way of magic but he's still alot stronger than me.
Obscurejones

He starts to open a portal.
Good enough for me.  Grab the girl.
Metakirb

Come on Elyea.

she gets up and takes Elyea's hand.
Who

Elyea holds on, holding her toys with the other hand.
Obscurejones

Al ushers them through.
Metakirb

Jeska leads Elya through.
Fathom

"...."  Not safe here for long.  Someone named Keryn.  Wonder what that's all about.

If he knew what was good for him, perhaps the silver-faced bishounen would stay on his own side of the portal, perhaps even flee from it off into that silvery sky.  But he doesn't do that.

No, the damn fool steps through into the plane of fire.

White, fluffy wings fold back over his shoulders as the local gravitational forces take effect, and his boots tread lightly upon the cafe floor.  He glances around, taking in his environment quickly, before he lets his eyes linger on this or that fascinating detail.
Obscurejones

Al glances at the bishouen and a dagger appears in his hand.
You affiliated with them's against me or those with me?
Fathom

"...." The winged man looks over AI and his dagger, and frowns thoughtfully.  After due consideration, he replies calmly, "Good question.  I confess I have no idea who you are, so the answer might be either, or neither.  Possibly even both.  Does that mean we have to fight now?"  He drops one hand to the extravagantly bejeweled hilt of a silver sword buckled against the waist of his white tunic, and adopts a wary stance.
Obscurejones

Al smiles.
Nope. Without looking back he dives through and closes his portal.
Fathom

He blinks, drops his hand away from his sword, and goes back to looking around. "...."
Who

And apparently Dei ends up here....
Obscurejones

Right in a lava pit.
Who

Luckily for him he's intangible and doesn't feel a thing.
Obscurejones

Al and Kitty reappear just outside of a rather lavish palace.  Various demons, djinn, and efreeti are entering.
Who

Kitty tightens her grip on Al, not knowing where they are or what those things are.
Obscurejones

I should point out that at the moment they are trying their best to look human.  So besides the occasional cloven hoof or burning eye they're just very well dressed very beautiful people entering a dance.
Who

Then she's okay.
Obscurejones

Al tries to lead her into the dance.
Who

She's lead, looking around in wonder.
Obscurejones

It's extravagant.  A lot gold and adamantine, a lot of obsidian.  Very much so black gold and red as the color scheme.  Most of the surfaces are carved to resemle flame, and often people dancing in the flame.
Who

"Wow..."
Obscurejones

He nods and leads her towards the main dance floor.
Who

Kitty's lead, she's never danced before though.
Obscurejones

He does his best to lead her through a simple waltz, correcting her gently when her foot work is off.
