The Bar is probably the last place Matt wants to be in after his stint of being trapped in Milliways, but he has a houseguest, and she needs more to wear than just his robe.

Dressed in suit and tie with his cane in tow, Matt enters Milliways and heads straight for the counter. A brief conversation with Bar yields a duffel bag and two cups of coffee.

The coffee gets an odd head-tilt from Matt, but he ignores the mugs and takes up the bag with a quiet thanks.

Slinging the duffel over his shoulder, he turns around with the intent of making a quick exit.

Entering the bar he never let the door leave the edges of his senses, wanting to make sure it didn't vanish again. Now, as he reaches it, the door is still there, but when his hand goes out to grab the handle it opens ahead of him.

Stepping back to avoid the swing, Matt freezes, stunned by who is standing in the open doorway.


Well, then…

Want to talk skills, how about Barry wandering through the front door balancing three large stacked boxes of donuts and a coffee in one arm, while texting with the hand of the other?

Head down, a messenger bag slung over one shoulder, he has no idea he isn't walking into his lab.

If Barry runs into you, apologies.

If he makes it clear he'll figure out eventually where he's at and sit down at a table to start in on the donuts and a report that he pulls from his bag.

.....well, oops.

This is totally not where Loki is supposed to be right now, because he is Literally Supposed to be Saving the World (!), but whatever, they'll get along fine without him for a little while, because look it's a magic multiversal bar.

Is he going to continue his Cat Thor cosplay while he checks out Milliways? Damn right he is. So he shoulders himself up to the bar and calls out, "MEAD! MEAD, FOR CAT THOR OF CATSGARD!"

((Loki is here from Squirrel Girl. So he looks like a fairly ordinary Marvel Loki with an adorable white cat head and a little Thor helmet. Because he's being Cat Thor today.

Hasty confession: I am lamentably new to Squirrel Girl, so I...don't...actually know anything beyond this one issue. *hangs head in shame*))

In one version of events, the young child Ibani stood in Milliways with a group of heroes ready to go back to her world and help free them all when something went wrong. Somehow, someway, she ended up on the other side of the Door with the door to Milliways shut and refusing to open again.

In another version of events, she grew to miss her mother so much she went back through the Door of her own free will, and was also unable to come back.

Either way, the years passed, her mother was murdered, and Ibani was taken for training as a Sith. For her, it's been 6 years since the last time she was in Milliways.

Which is why she's not expecting Milliways when she enters this time, dressed in the black robes of a Sith acolyte. She has a pyramidal holocron in her left hand and a Sith warblade in her right, blood still on the blade.

For a moment, just a moment, her eyes turn yellow with the Dark side as her anger boils. How dare this place turn up NOW, after she's already lost so much? After she's been forged into a weapon, after there's so much blood on her hands!

But she has better control now at 14 than she had at 8, so she takes a deep breath and puts the anger aside for a time when it will be useful.

A small air plant--spiky, free of any soil, perhaps a bit dry--sits on top of the bar. Now and then as one of the Milliways doors opens with enough force to create a draft, it skids a few inches along the surface.

((Pffft, sorry, sorry, forgive me, I dared myself to do Succulents AU this week, but then Jehan-mun beat me to it. It's all a bunch of nonsense. Bossuet is an air plant, a Tillandsia neglecta, currently homeless. Feel free to interact, but be warned that he's, you know...a plant. Please don't throw him in the fireplace.))

After Cassidy returned from a little excursion with Cassian, he'd immediately gone missing for several days.

Well. No. Not exactly.

He'd just been up in his room with a supply of spice, the good kind and the better kind. An embarrassment of riches, really.

Apologies to his neighbors who might have heard ceaselessly loud music and even louder, very enthusiastic one-sided conversations. And possibly arguments.

Late one evening, Cassidy finally comes downstairs, wearing a floral patterned bathrobe and blue pajama pants with an all-over Hello Kitty print (these were "borrowed" from the Lost & Found box). As he yawns and scratches himself, he flops down onto a barstool and orders a steak. Rare. Very rare. Like, it's still fucking moving rare.

Also, whiskey.

Anyone who comes near him will catch a whiff of some vaguely pepper-like scent.

The front door to the bar opens and in walks someone who hasn't been seen a whole lot recently.
Which isn't to say that he hasn't been around, but rather that he hasn't been seen.

Ninjas are wiley that way, after all.

These days he's a broad, bald, white guy who moves with the authority that comes with knowing that he can dish out more than most people can take, and take more than most people can dish out...punishment-wise. He's not dressed in black, exactly, but a very dark nearly-black shade of green, and on his thick black belt hang a pair of anachronistic-for-his outfit sai.

He moves towards Bar, and settles in his favorite spot by her side. 
A knock on her top is all it takes to order his favorite beer, a sandwich, and a first aid kit he's not entirely aware he needs yet.
(There's spot of darker than dark-green forming on the left side of his back, about midway down.)

The one piece of clothing that Cassian has with him that doesn't fit with the character of Willix is his beat up flight vest, because it packs well and its warm, his identification is hidden away. Since the heating in his apartment doesn't work as it should, he opens the door with his vest on tight and sighs, he was hoping for the utility room but Milliways will work. He goes up to the counter, rubbing the back of his neck and gets a napkin.

"Fine, yes, but can I have some caf with whiskey in it first?" Cassian asks in Festian, when it appears, he goes behind the counter to try and think of specials as he warms his hands. At least here he doesn't have to lie as much and there isn't surveillance everywhere. The cocktail book is incredibly distracting and he soon has more options than he expected including ones from his galaxy that he's never heard of.

Vista Way Margarita
Double-Dip Outer Rim Rumdrop

Once the specials are up, he stands behind the counter and looks to see who's around in Milliways.

 So, things are still a bloody mess, and Jim is about dead on his feet. Once again, he did not intend to come to the bar and once more, here he is and unable to get back out. He doesn't have the energy to yell at Bar this time, so he goes upstairs and takes a shower and even tries to sleep...which lasts forty-five minutes, before he's woken up by his brain screaming about all the things that need to be done. Progress has been made, but he's not going to be able to rest until he's removed the people at the root of the issue.

So he drags himself back downstairs, and the door still won't open. He turns to look at Bar. She produces a sandwich, and a pint of cold water, with her usual silence except it still manages to be pointed. Jim grits his teeth, and slopes over to the nearest stool.

'Forcing care on people is a violation of their human rights.'

Bar does not seem overly concerned. 
"Well it's mine now." Bar produces another napkin-note; Loki reads it, eyes narrowed. "--Then I'll pay. There's money in my account. Roughly a bank's-worth. It ought to cover a single unarmed skiff. --All right, thank you. And the paint I asked for? Green. Mm."

Loki leaves the bar with a bucket of paint, shaking his head, and makes for the lake, where his skiff, the one that is definitely his and not Milliways property, is waiting. Thank you, Milliways, and thank you X.

((OOM link to adventures with Loki and X. Catch Loki in the bar or outside!))

Barry strolls in with his head bent studying a file folder in his hands. His expectation is to find his lab, when he looks up and sees Milliways instead he grins and promptly shuts the folder, tucking it under his arm and heading for the counter.

Fiber analysis for Captain Singh on the Olaf case can totally wait, right? Right.

Apparently it can, because when Barry slides onto a stool Bar presents him with a plate of warm chocolate chip cookies, a tall glass of milk and a comic book.

Barry looks at the cover of the book and grins. Perching his Converse on a rung on the stool and grabbing a cookie, Barry opens up the comic to read it; file folder completely forgotten on the counter beside the plate.

[OOM: ...the guardian realized the way was open to the world.]

Danny enters and stops at the door, confused. This is most definitely not a tiny bar in whatever country he finds himself in. World geography had never been his strong suit and all he knows is he's down in one of the valleys below the mountains that hide K'un Lun. No, this bar is much more like what he'd find back home in New York City. Dazed, he only moves when a rat carrying a tray with drinks on it squeaks at him; side stepping and then spinning to take in as much of the bar as he can.

Help a new guy out?

As promised, Baze does some light reading in the library about the Anzati, and drops a note off for X.

X settles at a corner table, Security badge affixed to her belt.

It's paperwork time.

(Or maybe research time into how Bar can possibly feed patrons that live on life energy. Surely there is a historical example somewhere.)

At some point before he goes home for the day, Jim leaves a note at the bar.

There is a drawing of a cartoon Dalek at the bottom, and a boy attacking it with a wooden spoon. Also, a dog carrying a leg in its mouth, for no apparent reason.

[From here.]

There's something he has to do before they get back on the road - one last thing, one last time. Dean had agreed when Sam suggested it.

He walks through the door into Milliways alone, with a duffel slung over his shoulder. In his hand he carries a notebook. (Ruby's knife is sheathed and out of sight under his shirt, seated at the small of his back, in easy reach.)

Sam takes a seat at the bar, one with a good view of the room, and orders coffee. He's got a lot of letters to write.

[ooc: open until it scrolls, or longer if needed/wanted. This is Sam Winchester's last visit to Milliways. thanks!]

When he enters the bar today, Kylo is slightly shocked at how much he feels in the Force. It's stronger than his last visit. This requires some looking into.

To do so, he's slowly and quietly creeping his way around the bar proper, for now, to see if he can determine any source of what he feels. If there's nothing inside, he'll try the outdoors later.

Garnet walks into the bar.

She (she will do, as a pronoun, though it doesn’t mean quite what it does for humans) is tall and dark and impassive. She is bemused—what is this weirdly ordinary-looking place, and how has it supervened upon the Crystal Gems’ portal? She is concerned—is there someone or something at work on their portal, perhaps some technology from Homeworld? She is, perhaps, a little entertained, especially when she looks at the welcome brochure.

None of these feelings show on her face, as she walks in with Pearl.

Pearl, a step behind, is a study in contrasts: fluttering along, visibly and vocally concerned. "Did it work? Do you see it? Oh! It worked! We're here! You see, just like I told you!"

"I see," is all Garnet says.

There's a fireplace, filled with fish. Garnet and Pearl gravitate there. It's good a place to stand and view the bar--and also the fish.

[ooc: tag in for Garnet, and for the occasional Pearl popping in at will, since Pearl-mun is away for a bit!]

[[After Chirrut and Baze got into fisticuffs with Teja (who then got his ass handed to him thoroughly by a blind old monk), X-23 intervened, and the two Guardians ended up in the cells, where they can be visited.]]
