Note in the office for Alanna.

But Liam can probably take it instead. He'll probably not want the knickers though...

Two left. Three return. The front door closes and they head for the stairs in various states of disarray: the familiar couple of Slayer and ninja flanking an explorer—just as familiar.

Indy looks the worst of the trio, hair matted to his forehead, his face an emaciated mess of bruising, cuts, dried blood and scratty beard growth. His lips are cracked and split in several places, his eyes swollen and bloodshot. What's beneath isn't much better, from what can be seen outside the olive drab military shirt and shredded pants. Dime-sized welts dot his forearms and hands, along with more sinuous scabs and gray-yellow discolorations. The rear of his pants is charred. There is no hat. No gun. No bull whip. Despite all this, he has a bottle of brandy in one hand and he's in one piece. Beyond the weariness, he seems pretty happy about the state of affairs.

It's funny, with the smile Mike is currently sporting the passive onlooker would never know exactly how much pain he is experiencing, or how much he has lost along the way. Why? Because he's gained so much more in the process. Lost shoes, tattered and torn borrowed clothes, a destroyed skate rug, and even a dislocated shoulder are nothing when compared to the fact Indy is home, and that he's home safe.

Mel is supporting most of Indy's weight as she staggers through, disheveled but triumphant. Her hair hangs in sweaty tangled strings from having knives torn out of it, a once white blouse is covered in dust and grime and hanging partially open where buttons have been lost. In traditional Slayer style, her dark gray pencil skirt is ripped to the waistband, revealing Cuban heeled nylon stockings, one of which sports a rather nasty run, and both slightly worse for wear around the feet. She's lost her shoes along the way.

The smile on her face is exhausted despite its sincerity. But it quickly melts away as something changes, noticed only by her. Leaving the archaeologist in Mike's care, with an urgent look telling her lover to take care of him, she suddenly ditches them both, and races towards the lake door, slipping across the floor as the nylon fails to grip properly. Before the door slams behind her, flames can be made out dancing along her skin and hair.

The two men watch her leave, both their brows furrowing in mild concern. Indy's questioning look turns apologetic as his knees buckle and he has to grab Mike's shoulder for support. "Oh boy. Sorry. I..."

Mike winces, but does not cry out. There are a few tense moments where it looks like both men might just fall right over, but eventually ninja skill and sheer force of will keep them standing. "Someone needs a hot tub— stat!" he declares. And with a last look towards the door, he starts to help his room mate upstairs. As they depart, Indy casts a glance back to the thronging bar area, catching a few wondering eyes and offering a reassuring smile in response.

Svava is down in the bar. On duty- her Security Badge is clipped to her belt, and there is a cup of hot chocolate near at hand as she keeps a general eye on things.

And yes, she is looking better than she has been, of late. You can certainly ask to find out why.

There's a blur of activity coming from the stairwell to the Guest Suites. At least it's a colorful blur of activity, all orange and blue with just a hint of pink and purple. What ever it is, it's moving fast. A blur on a mission.

As the blur moves more into the bar it's far easier to make out that it's not a blur at all, but a slayer and ninja ex-turtle on a mission.
They're on a mission from Glod Lilly. A rescue mission to save one of their own.

"No Marshmallow-Fluff, trust me when I say the scythe will sort of blow the whole under cover thing right out of the water. It's like 12 feet high and bright red. I know Nazis are dumb and all, but they're not that dumb."

[OOM. Suite 132 - Sunday morning recreation with the duckies. Sounds harmonious and slightly lurid? You have no idea. Things turn horribly sour, and it's not because of Lemon & Lime Squeakins...]

Another day, another run.

Alright, so perhaps Ace isn't so continuously fitness-savvy as that, but she hasn't felt terribly fit to fly of late, so running has been resorted to as a means to keep the wilder half satisfied. Not quite as good as her usual mode of operations, but it will do, for now.

So there's an Ace strolling into the bar, still rather dampish from her shower, intent on getting a good breakfast. Waffles. Waffles sound really good right now.

[OOM: The Crystal of Osiris]

Lilly reappears in the bar, directly in front of the front door. She looks... well. Interestingly disheveled, maybe. The beat-up leather jacket she's wearing is too large and covered in rock dust. There's dried blood staining the left side of her shirt, and some bruises apparent on her legs.

She's also grinning, even as she limps further into the bar in search of a little help.

Sure, there's a bullet graze above her hip and her collarbone may be broken and you could probably find the lost continent of Atlantis if you studied all of her bruises, but damn if she didn't just kick some Nazi ass, do a little world-saving, and manage to come out of it with her hair still looking pretty good.

Not a bad trip.
