Blame either one of two things: Milliways being a smartass, or Tommy Gavin being careless. As much as the bar's behavior is questionable, the general rule remains that if you're in doubt, always blame Tommy.

It just so happens that after Tommy leaves Milliways through the firehouse kitchen door, it doesn't quite properly close.

So, shortly after, this particular FDNY lieutenant, busily scribbling out the day's assignments on a clipboard, wanders into the kitchen...except the kitchen isn't a kitchen.

"Hey, Tommy, would you do me a favor and get me th..."

He's already a good five or six steps inside the bar when he stops short.

The pencil and clipboard fall to his sides as he casts a thoroughly confused stare around at his new surroundings. He wants to say something, but he's not sure what. Speechlessness should be good for the time being.

William's trying to find a comfortable way to sit as Horus explores around the Bar and so a red kitten pounces Shea's trousers.

(OOC: That's okay and I did go and change the icon as I realized the cat's grown a bit.)

Horus meows and butts his head against Kenny's arm, picking up should mean petting.

William looks up when he hears Horus meowing and sets his book down and winces as he bumps his elbow on the table,

"I hope he ain't botherin' you, sir.

"No, sir, you ain't. This is Milliways and its real just don't make that much sense, but first drink's on the house and I can do my best to explain,"

He gestures to his table where there's a dime novel about a New York detective, a mug of coffee, a saucer of tuna and some biscuits.

"Cause the world ain't that nice, sir. We're at the End of the Universe but we're safe from it, don't recommend lookin' at the Window. When you're in here time stops on the other side of the door and there are rules to keep everyone safe; no violence, no outside business and no lewd stuff down here. And first drink's on the house."

Horus butts at Kenny's hand, people going quiet usually means they're asleep or unhappy, which isn't good,

"Yeah, I don't recommend lookin' at it too long."

Ever since her stint at bartending and her subsequent, mildly disastrous conversation with Michael, she's been cooled off a little on the bar, only coming in for a cup of coffee now and again and to check and see if anybody's left her jacket for her. ("Still nothing?" she asks in frustration, but the bar can't or doesn't answer, so she shrugs and leaves it for another day.)

Tonight, she's having a beer after a long night of trying to be cordial to Regina for the sake of Henry and the other guests at Kathryn's little welcome home party, but she's not nearly deep enough in her thoughts not to notice the clatter of a clipboard hitting the ground.

If she knew, she'd happily blame Tommy right along with him.

Half-turning, she eyes the guy with a combination of curiosity and mild concern.

"You okay over there?"

The look she gives him isn't unsympathetic.

"I could," she tells the guy, "but it wouldn't make any of this any better. Seriously, you might want to sit down and have a drink, it makes the whole thing a lot easier."

Taking a sip of her beer, she shrugs. "On the plus side, you aren't going nuts. So there's that."

Man, she sucks at this. Seriously. She's never been good at holding hands or patting shoulders, and she's pretty crap at pep talks, but the guy looks like he could use a break and she remembers all too well how screwed up she'd considered her first visit here being.

"Look, there's no way to say this without it sounding completely crazy," she tells him, "so I'm just gonna lay it all out there for you. It'll be just like ripping off a band-aid, and then we can have a more normal conversation. Okay?"

Enlighten him. Yeah, that might not really be the end result of all this, but she tries anyhow.

"This place is called Milliways. It popped up in your kitchen because it connects to a bunch of different universes with the door you came through." She studies him for a second, gauging whether or not he thinks she's nuts.

"What's your name?"

"Emma Swan."

That, at least, she can say without sounding like she's headed straight for the loony bin. He's got a good handshake, but before she sits back, her eyes trail down to the stitching on his pocket, and she frowns.

"FDNY?"

Now that looks familiar.

A mix of expressions flick across her face before settling on wry amusement. "Do you know a guy named Tommy Gavin?"

Could be a different FDNY in a different universe, in which case, Tommy's head is going to explode, and she kind of hopes she there to see it if this turns out to be another one of those weird coincidences that comes along with the bar, but it could not be, too.

There's a plainclothes SEAL looking at you over the top of his newspaper, Lou.

After he's fairly certain Lou's a new arrival:

"You ain't hallucinating, pal," he says, turning the page. "Just let it sink in."

Voodoo folds the paper up and tosses it on a nearby coffee table.

"Place is called Milliways. It's the bar at the end of the universe. Three rules: no violence, no sex, and no outside business. Window's right there," he says, pointing, "and the first drink's on the house. Questions?"

[personal profile] boston_bruiser 2012-05-13 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Voodoo shrugs, his hands in his pockets. "Your guess's as good as mine, pal. But I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you walked through a door and ended up here. Happens to a lot of people. Shit, happened to me a while back. Ain't versed on the specifics, but it just sucks you in when you don't expect it."

That's more like it.

"It's free. Bar's right there," he says, nodding to it.

"Oh, and it's voice-activated."
