"Greetings, Hild of the Hill Country."
Fri Sep 11, 2015 07:32

Jareth smiled back at Hild, but Kyaris was already talking.

"I know what he means - well, obviously. One of the heads I picked up during the Invasion is particularly prone to headaches - I've honestly considered tearing it off, except I'm worried the replacements would both be as- oops, here she comes."

"Yay! You gave me a nickname!" Kayleigh bounced over to Hild and hugged her around the neck. "Now we are best friends! Or at least friends! Or acquaintances!"

Salamander coughed. "Kayleigh? You're hugging again."

"What? Oh." Kayleigh took a step back. "I-am-aware-that-some-people-don't-like-hugs-so-I'm-sorry," she rattled off. "Now, where was I?"

"Babbling on about aromatherapy," Kyaris supplied. "I think we should really be tracking down the Sub Rosa, though-"

Kayleigh cut her off with a glare, hefting her mace. "We're looking for the aromatherapist," she said. Then she beamed. "So! Agent Horse, you keep your nose open for revitalizing essential oils. Agent Seeing Colours-"

"His name's Yoof," Salamander supplied.

"Agent Seeing Colours, you look out for her pink highlights. Agent Four Ears-"

"Is that meant to be us?" Jareth growled. "We are two agents, and I for one don't think-"

"That's a shame; you should really try it." Kayleigh flipped her hoverboard back into the air and climbed aboard. "Agents Fours Earses, you listen out for uplifting slogans. And Sal... I'll call you if I need anyone to taste or touch something, all right?"

"I have no idea what you're going on about."

"That's the spirit!" Kayleigh stood up and pressed down with her toe; the hoverboard began to pick up speed. "Onwaaaaards!"


((So: yes, Kayleigh does actually have a plan. My theory is that until July drops in to GM us, we'll invent our own trail of clues to follow. And this is the first one! Shout out when you smell/see/etc the aromatherapist - and bonus points if you can guess who I'm bringing back for this. ^_^))

((I'm dropping my theory about the Sub Rosa here - basically, she's not one to let an opportunity go to waste, so while the rest of HQ's in chaos and the Flowers are flailing around, she's wandering around undercover, pretending to be a human agent. No doubt she'll learn many things people would rather she hadn't.))

((Jareth is... well, since Rath never said, I'm going to go with Isengard. I'm actually characterising him on the fly here, based on some other stuff I wrote about Ugluk as a 'noble' warrior. I agree that the non-Elvish Arda agent is an interesting thing to play around with...))

    "You're Kyaris, aren't you? And, uh, Gareth? No, Jareth. That's it." She gave him a friendly smile -- it was rare to see another non-elf agent from Arda -- then turned her attention back to the other ... more
