Anton Gorodetsky - Main Bar

And there's a creepy doll
That always follows you
It's got a ruined eye
That's always open
It has been a long few weeks for Anton and an even longer few hours as the clean up of an unlicensed witch turned sour. Why must they always try and fight? It always ends badly and always more costly than if they had just accepted their due. Oh well, who can understand the Dark?

Finding Milliways instead of the street level is a blessing as he has not yet had breakfast and lunch was a long time ago, while dinner never even happened. A contented sigh hides a soft click, clack but Anton does turn when he noticed the door didn't close behind him. Turning with a frown, he pushes the door closed and heads for the bar. Coffee first.

[[OOC: And so the Creepy Doll plot begins. See this backroom post for more information.]]
[[[OOC: Also, Anton is open for tags or reactions to something scuttling about your legs for the Creepy Doll if you'd like. Just put the reaction tags under Creepy Doll's for clarity if you don't mind.]]]

Quickly, the doll dashes to the nearest shadow, scuttling beneath a booth.

It's not a booth Autor looks at unless he has to, as helplessly watching a young girl's trauma unfold is enough to keep him from sitting on that side of the room.

So, completely oblivious to the animatronic fear-mongerer, the skinny boy plops--always dignified, him--onto a bar stool and orders some tea without looking up from Blake Snyder's Save the Cat, except to nod once, at Anton.

To which Autor lowers his book, blinking. He's used to people laughing at him, but not in his general direction. "What," he says, bewildered, "is so funny?"

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-24 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Autor shakes his head, and glances at the cover of the book. "'Hang in there'?" he asks. "There's no noose."

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-24 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, an idiom," the boy says, and wrinkles his nose. Then he regards the cover of the book. "Though given that it's technically a Monday in the multiverse, I can't imagine the poor cat will be able sink its claws into this rope until Friday."

The tone is just dry enough to suggest that he's joking, though whether or not he pulls it off is subjective.
herr_bookman: (lean)

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-24 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Autor snorts, amused. "Possibly," he says, and takes a sip of his tea. "Iron reinforced claws. Maybe it's just training its arms, and will have climbed the rope before Friday morning arrives."

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-25 07:09 am (UTC)(link)
"It appears that this cat doesn't need saving at all," the boy concludes, waving the book around. "Clearly the author's imperative title is a lie, or he has suffered a grievous mistake at the print office."

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-26 05:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Nothing to do with cats," the boy says, shrugging. "It's about writing screenplays, though the tips can be transposed to novels, too."

He sips his tea. "Where do you hail from?"

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-27 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
"Of a sorts," Autor says, and sets the book down. "Moscow! Interesting. I've met another Russian around the bar, but I doubt she'd be from your time period, let alone your version of Earth."

He sips his tea. "What do you do in Moscow?"
herr_bookman: (glasses)

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-27 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
Autor raises a brow. "They say that, do they? Who are 'they'?"

The smile throws him off, though. "Oh," he says, and now he wonders if the man was pulling his leg. "And no, not at all. I don't mind if you eat, though I'm not hungry. Thank you for the offer."

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-27 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Aha, a pop culture idiom," Autor says, nodding. "Oh, that looks interesting. What is kasha?"

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-28 01:04 am (UTC)(link)
Autor nods, and then orders a half-serving. "I've never eaten anything from Moscow. May as well," he says, and then grins. "Looks like I should have taken you up on your offer after all."

[personal profile] herr_bookman 2013-06-28 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
"I assume Bar sources it perfectly prepared," he says, adjusting his glasses.

"And you may," he says, pausing for a moment while he deliberates over whether or not to give him the answer. "Germany."

He finds the kasha is quite nice.

An infirmary waitrat, Aesclepius, catches sight of the TERRIFYING MONSTER THING, and rushes up Guppy's leg.

By the time Guppy peers under the table, he can't see anything.

A faint laugh and the jingle of silver bracelets is the only warning Anton gets before a basketball is pitched at his head.

Katya plays basketball as a contact sport. Bear never showed her differently.

"It keeps your hands fast." Katya replies innocently, "I would not be doing you a service to allow you to enter the field with slow reflexes."

"And for that, I will pay for the first bottle." He is improving! She'll have to throw two next time.


Katya learned training techniques from Bear. Blame him for that, as well.

"Antoshka." She chides, tsking at his expression, "That is in the past, and at least had the benefit of being hilarious after the fact. Go, sleep, you're being ridiculous."
