Ever since Jay's birthday party, Emcee has had the sniffles. Not terrible, really, but just enough to annoy him, and to prompt him to emerge from his room and go downstairs to fetch some tea with lemon and honey.

It's when he enters the main bar that he suddenly sneezes.

And blows holographic rainbow glitter all over his handkerchief.

Because of course it would be holographic rainbow glitter.

"...Oh, dear."

The Bar presents him with a cup of tea in a vaguely helpful manner.

Guppy's smallest son is off school today with a cold, so Guppy has brought him into the bar to entertain him for a bit.

While Guppy is getting him some orange juice, Gil is painting a lovely picture. It appears to be some sort of truck, though it has a big smiley face on the front. Just as he's finishing, Gil sneezes, and right before his eyes, the picture is covered in a scattering of pink glitter.

"Look, pretty!" he shows his father, when Guppy comes back with the juice.

"Very good, Gil." Guppy says, looking at the picture, then frowning with confusion. "Huh. I didn't give you any glitter..."

After tending to Wilford, Guppy is at the bar looking to see if he can spot anyone with a broken nose.

Or, you know, anyone else who wants a chat.

"Oh honestly." Guppy is saying sternly. "How can you lose a shoe, Brooklyn, at your age? You're nearly five years old, old enough to know better."

Brooke doesn't look terribly sorry. Little brother Gil, who appears to be dressed as a piglet, stares at her wide eyed.

"Uh oh!" he says.

"Go and look for it please." Guppy says, settling down with Gil in one corner with a copy of Winnie the Pooh. Gil sits on his father's knee and chews on his piglet mittens.

Brooke goes around the bar, looking over and under and in things.

The circle of chairs is out in the main bar. In the middle are a selection of fruit pies, with a choice of ice cream, or cream, or custard, or none of the above.

Behind the pies are a large sign.

Guppy's foot has almost healed up now, so he's been sorting out some things in the infirmary this afternoon. And right now, he's working on an inventory stock check list on his laptop, back in the main bar.

Botherable, though.

Guppy isn't looking terribly pleased today. He has his foot resting on the table, because it's still bloody sore, after some idiot started shooting through the ceiling after an escaped monster thing.

He'd go and visit Wilford in the cells, except he's pissed off and can't be bothered.

The waitrats are generally fussing over him, bringing him snacks and tea.

After this, there's a note for Security - both at the bar, and in the office.


There's a thing running loose upstairs somewhere. It's quick as anything, and basically looks like a bowling ball with one eye in the middle of it, and something sprouting out the top. It came in with Warfstache, and got loose. He doesn't know what it is or what it does, but he was trying to kill it so it probably isn't great to have running wild.

Gene Hunt 



That done, he returns to his pint. Damnit, it has gone warm.



[OOC: Wilford can be visited here. The one-eyed monster is free to be run into by anyone, at any time, in any place. It's very fast, and no one knows what it is or what it can do. Enjoy! :D]

When Wilford comes into the bar today, holding onto an old printer paper box, he pauses like this isn't where he meant to be. After a moment, he decides that maybe this is the best place to be, and heads straight for the bar, putting the box on top of it.

He tries talking to the bar, asking her if she can get him something from a database, though she seems unwilling to help no matter how nicely (or rudely) he asks.

Every now and then, the lid on the box tries to pop up a bit, causing Wilford to have to slam it back down in a hurry.

Guppy gets a note when he arrives at the bar today. He pens a quick reply, though he doesn't recognise the author.

'Hi,
No need to pay back if it was an emergency, but if you need assistance in the future please use the emergency call button to the left of the door which will help you locate one of the medics to help you. It is best to use the infirmary drugs under supervision: things may vary compared with your home world.

With that, he goes outside, to do yoga on the beach.

The circle of chairs is... not in the bar today, instead there's a sign.

Emcee dusts off the karaoke machine. Poor little machine, so neglected. Well. That's going to change.

As the video screens flicker on, Emcee steps up to the microphone stand. He's wearing a leather kilt, chunky motorcycle-style boots adorned with buckles and straps, and a black, pinstriped vest with no shirt. Also, a rainbow-colored feather boa. As usual, his makeup is flawless.

An acoustic guitar intro strums through the speakers.

"I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca-Cola
C-O-L-A Cola..."


Emcee adopts an Iggy Pop-esque stance, gripping the microphone in both hands and singing intimately into it. He knows the words already and doesn't have to watch the screens.

"She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
L-O-L-A Lola
La-la-la-la Lola..."


This is Emcee's first attempt at rocking out. And he will do so, fabulously, as if he were always meant to.

Read more... )

Anyone who wants to can dance or sing along. In fact, Emcee encourages it!

And when the song ends, he takes a bow with a rainbow-colored flourish. He still is what he is.

Sam really hates it when he can't help people. He knows this and knows it can be a trigger for his anxiety, and so he heads outback to work out some on the heavy bag.

Feel free to say hi or maybe hold the bag for him if you'd like.

[OOC: Here for an hour, and then slows until tomorrow. And off to meeting, back tomorrow.]

Over in one corner of the bar, Guppy is supervising his younger daughter Brooke as she does some reading homework.

"Daddy?"

"Yes Brooke?"

"You know how you asked me earlier whether I had the missing snake?"

Guppy gives her a look. "Yeees?"

"Well, I don't have the missing snake." Brooke says. "But I did have it ten minutes ago."

Beat.

"So you mean the first three times I asked, you actually did have it, and now you don't."

"Yes." Brooke confirms.

Guppy stares at her for a moment, then begins rapidly searching around the tables.

After the explosion Amanda hesitates briefly inside the bar. She isn't certain if she should go back to her world as planed or go investigate. What if someone needs help?

It doesn't take long before Amanda is outside. She makes it halfway to the forest when she suddenly realizes since she was inside she doesn't know where the explosion came from.

So there is an immortal outside looking for anyone, especially Guppy.

Day one of Guppy's new attempt to lead a more anxiety-free lifestyle has seen him outside in the sunshine, attempting some yoga.

Guppy is actually quite good at yoga.

No, wait, that doesn't sound right, let's try that again.

Guppy has watched a lot of yoga on Youtube, and is confident today that he could pull some of the more interesting poses. Today he is trying something called the 'Crow', which involves balancing on his hands with his knees tucked behind his elbows.

It is precisely this moment that the massive explosion goes off from somewhere in the forest, causing him to nearly jump out of his skin, and fall on his chin.

If that was Vyvyan, there's going to be words.

Guppy has mostly managed to comb his hair over the large bruise on his forehead. He's still a little concerned that he looks like a prat, but that can't be helped.

In the meantime, he is in a quiet booth, sewing name labels into Brooke's hockey uniform.
