Salamander grinned - carefully, keeping his teeth hidden.

"No, I've given up carrying things around - this body likes to burst into flames at every opportunity." He blinked. "I think I said that already. But it's still weird."

When Hild paused, Jareth took it as an opening. "Which tribe-?" But then she sniffed, and he fell silent.

Kayleigh cocked her head in response to Hild, and took a deep breath. "No, wait, in through the nose..." She sniffed. "You're right; I'd recognise that smell anywhere. Well done, Agent Horse - ten house points to you!"

Swinging her hoverboard around, Kayleigh bounced off a wall and span around a corner. She came to a stop in front of a blonde elf-woman and immediately threw her arms around her, knocking the sign the woman was holding to the ground.

"Beeeeeeeeeee-wait." Kayleigh frowned and took a step back. "You are not bjam." She looked at the aromatherapy stand leaning against the wall, and down at the sign lying on the floor (which said, in shaky letters, 'It'll all get better soon'), and suddenly her mace was in her hand. "You've stolen my friend's stuff. What have you done with her?"

"Um." The elf stumbled back from Kayleigh. "Kay, it's me. I got body-swapped, you know? With some woman from Out-of-Character Hobbits. But I'm still me."

Kayleigh glowered at her. "Prove it."

"Um... go PPC?"

"Bjam!" Kayleigh threw her arms around the Official PPC Morale Officer & Aromatherapist (Department of Operations, Department of Fictional Psychology [disputed]). "How long has it been?"

"About a week, I think." Bjam struggled free and knelt down to pick up her sign. "So, uh, what brings you here?"


((The Wiki says bjam is retired. I reject that reality and purloin her for my own use.

((She's currently in the body of Maethorwen of the DOOCH, because I forgot she existed. Blonde, emerald eyes, 5'9''.

((Bjam will not be joining the party, but feel free to ask her questions/buy aromatherapy oils/request an uplifting slogan.

((hS, stealing his friends' characters since '04))
