Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

"Screw it," the American muttered. "If aint no one gonna step up..." She took a deep breath and thrust herself from the couch. From behind the microphone she knelt down and flipped the clasps on an unremarkable, oblong box. The instrument she produced from within was sleek, the dark finish worn from...

Re: [Chapter 1] Once a Marine.

Camilla was second, and kept a large distance between herself and Niall. Her size and the bulk of the special team's armor made them about as stealthy as rhinos in the underbrush. The sight of the drainage pipe drew an almost silent sigh from Camilla, but it was Bentoo that uttered her thoughts. "Wh...

Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

"Likewise. The house could use a bit more warmth."

Jane circled around the second question. She was feeling a little... Predictable with her choice. "I like t be prepared, so naturally I'm equipped wit a few. Prolly not erryone else's cup o tea, but should keep the energy up."

Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

She applauded sincerely with a smile. Laoise's energy was infective, and-- gods forefend-- Jane was nearly eager to get up and take her turn. The American turned toward her old foe. "I might jus have t take ye up on that offer. I've no mind fer decor." A sip and a thought. "Now, music. I've got a ta...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

Jane put a reassuring arm around the smaller woman's shoulders. "Course not. Ain't nothin ye coulda done, Mizz Maelgwyn, but everythin ye already done. Stay strong, we ain't out the woods yet." The cowgirl released Eryl and took a halfstep back. She had to steady herself as well. It had been a long ...

Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

Jane smiled cordially at Caoranach. She was quickly learning the woman had a penchant for haughty thoughts. It was a wonder her nose didn't have a polished gleam from all the snubbing she did. "Likewise," she responded to the thought of not having spoken previously. "S'pose it was more necc'ss'ry th...

Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

Jane raised her glass of whiskey and cola. "To frien--" when Riley interrupted the toast. She scowled for a moment before remembering it was a time to relax. There was no need to berate her for tardiness. It was a social gathering, not a lecture. A deep breath was sufficient to ease her tension. "Fr...

Re: [Pew Pew Karaoke] A Night Off

"Fun indeed," Jane concurred with genuine anticipation. It had been a long time since she'd let her hair down, metaphorically speaking. It had been much longer since she'd let anyone attempt to wrangle her locks into anything other than a ponytail-- since before she had first come to Japan, all thos...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

A righteous light exploded from a pair of dying gods. The shockwaves picked up the gunslinger only to deposit her on two stumbling feet. Boots slid in the dirt, and an arm shielded her eyes from airborne debris. She came to a stop kneeling in fresh greenery. She didn't have to look up to know this p...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

"I--!" Johann didn't know how that sentence ended, but he sure was miffed that he never got it out. Heat flushed his face, and made him tug at his turban self-consciously, wishing he could yank it over his face and hide for awhile. The turban remained snug and his emotions remained in plain sight. T...
