"Don't panic, everything's under controhbugger."
Fri Oct 30, 2015 22:26

It was at this point that Tessa started swearing inventively since Sam's costume had got the spiderwebs. The Goth fished around in her clutchbag and pulled out something that looked like pepper spray, if designed by someone who thought it should be able to fire whole peppers. She pointed it at the flames and pressed the trigger on the top, and it began to suck in the flames from various points in the room. This went well, even after it got clogged up with Sam's leg hair.

"Sorry about that," Jo said, trying on another smile. "Er. I think we're down as HeroSoc? Maybe? Minty, what did you book us as?"

"The Twizell-Pole party."

"... Of course you did." Jo fought the urge to roll her eyes and capitulated after valiantly struggling for a good few milliseconds. "Hm. I'm Jo, that's Tess, our resident nun's Sam, Sally's over there pouring ketchup in a bag of crisps for some bloody reason, Starlight's the one talking the ear off the barman about astrology, and Minty..." And here she winked. "Minty I believe you've met."

Minty glared at Jo for a second, then turned it into a gaze of frankly terrifying lust directed at Michael. "Ave, centurion," she said, managing to make it sound so filthy even ancient Romans would have balked at it.

    Michael started, almost tripping on his billowy red cape. "What?" he asked, pushing his helmet out of his eyes. "What's the matter?" "Fire!" Alleb yelped, pointing towards the bar. "Come on!" The... more

      • "Er... hi?" Michael squeaked. Alleb, Fri Oct 30 23:56
        Come to think of it, he did remember a voice suspiciously similar to the one making the introductions screaming across the room. What had she said? But perhaps that wasn't important now. "Wow, uh,... more

          Jo beamed winningly as she took the proffered hand. "And yes, we have. So far. I mean, we only just got here, so it'd be hard not to, right?" "Sorry 'bout that, fam," Sam rumbled, patting out his... more

            "I-- what-- why-- who--" he stuttered, red-faced. Under normal circumstances he was flustered around girls, but he'd never had one do that before. "I-- uh-- drink! I'll get a-- I mean get you a--... more

              "And your own attire is just so you !" Minty took Alleb's hand and gave it a demure, rather affected shake, and leaned in to kiss her on the cheek. "Nemo me impune lacessit," she whispered in the... more

                Perhaps already having her teeth gritted helped, and Alleb managed not to scream. That didn't mean she wasn't hurt: on the scale of injuries she had received during her time as a Knight of Alleble,... more

                    With a wince and a barely suppressed groan, Alleb laid her crooked hand on the tabletop. Thankfully, the debacle hadn't attracted too much notice, although Minty's still form was starting to draw... more

                      Tessa shrugged. "Eh, I've been meaning to test this on something other than a car jack, but none of those melted or burst into flames since the most recent firmware update so she'll probably be... more
