Comments

What has occurred so far:

Alastair has shifted himself and Adra back in time, to the moment where Niccolò stole Alastair's name. Alastair has killed Niccolò's family, and set the home ablaze. Upon seeing the house, Niccolò immediately pushes himself to be in control of his own body, panics, and begs Adra to help him save his family. After hesitation and consideration of potential consequences, Adra agrees under the condition that Niccolò bring his family back with him to the present.

Thus, both she and Niccolò salvage his family's bodies, as well as the original body of Alastair, and places them in a special pocket dimension that she has crafted from her alchemy, the door being one that can grow and shrink from the size of a cell phone to a normal size.

After saving the family, Niccolò embraces Adra and tells her that he will never forget her kindness. The pair catch their breaths, and Niccolò lets Alastair have control again. Adra gives him a stone that will feed him energy to help fuel his time travel, though Alastair decides to not use it yet. After a small conversation, Alastair and Adra decide that it would be best to spend the night in town, as Alastair recuperates.

*Mireille attend anxieusement dehors du restaurant*

[Mireille waits anxiously outside the restaurant]

[She really wants to go after them, but she doesn't know where they went, and she also doesn't want to butt in on their conflict more than she has to]

(Hi Fabu, nothing much just reading the rp, you?)

Mireille Béatrice said...

((Idk if deds are a thing in this blog, but if they are, I ded to RP-ing with old friends and not having homework! If they're not a thing, I ded to the same stuff anyway because #rebel))

Mireille Béatrice said...

((I'm officially no longer a high schooler! :D So I'm quite good, thank you.))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*kisses her shoulder* I understand. I'm sorry it's been so trying for you. *he will finish healing her, and then bring her to an inn, to rent a room for her* *he'll carry her up to rest, if she prefers that, and tuck her into bed* Sleep well, my love. I'll be back soon. *then he will teleport and walk back into the restaurant to speak with this stranger*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[She sees him start to walk into the restaurant, so she hurries to enter behind him]

Is your wife alright?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he'll stop, then- he was only going in for Mieille, and he can talk to her outside* *nods* Emotionally, she may need some time, but... She'll be alright. It's kind of you to be concerned.

Mireille Béatrice said...

I shouldn't have told Trip to talk to her, should I?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*sighs gently* I don't think it was a bad idea. I think he just messed it up, badly. That isn't your fault. I was hoping it might've gone well, too, but... There's so much painful history between the three of us. I appreciate your trying to help.
If it's alright with you, I should get back to her soon. But if you'd still like to help, perhaps we can meet up again tomorrow?

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Nods]

If you still want my help tomorrow, you can find me at my house.

If you hear that way for a block and turn right at the inn at sign of the goose, you'll find it three buildings down, wedged in between the inn at sign of the fire and the blacksmith at sign of the hammer. If I'm not there, you can ask Richard Blacksmith, but that probably won't be necessary.

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Richard Forgeron (she wouldn't translate the name)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Thank you. It was a pleasure to meet you. *he'll return to Adra, then, to sleep beside her*

((And now my author must go. Goodnight.))

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Mireille returns to her house as well, avoiding the "town crazy" in the dark.]

((Night))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*When Adra stirs in the morning, she makes a tiny sound, then just burrows more into her husband*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*stirs, and pulls her closer, placing a little kiss against her hair* Morning, love.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Makes a little squeak of a hello, and hides more*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*runs his fingers through her hair* *he loves her*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She knows he does* Are you feeling better? Perhaps well enough to make our next leap?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he nods* I am, thank you. Would you like to pick up our mysterious friend before we go?

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Mireille se réveille tôt*

*Elle mange du pain et du porridge*

*Elle écrit une lettre aux Forgerons et elle la met sur la table*

[Mireille wakes up early and has a bit of bread and porridge. She writes a letter to the blacksmiths and sets it on the table (just in case helping these people is the last thing she has to do before her time quest ends and she can go home)]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* Of course.
I have a question- when did you steal the time traveller?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

She was the first one that I stole.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* okay... Well then, perhaps you and the younger you can take turns being the ones to push us through time?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I think that would be an excellent idea. *kisses her hair again*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Smiles* Shall I talk to you- younger you- first?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

You mean before I do? *nods* I think that would be best. You'll have to tell me that my memories have been altered, and I might need a bit of convincing, but I'm sure I'll know it's you.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* I can do that, Duckie. *Kisses his cheek*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Thank you, my love. *kisses her nose*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Smiles* Let's go get our friend. *Takes his hand and will pull him downstairs*

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Mireille nettoie sa maison*

[Mireille's cleaning her house]

[Idk. I feel like I've been silent for a while, so I said something]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(It's ok Fabi!)
(Oh my god this blog is not EST no stop

Mireille Béatrice said...

(It's to my time! It's actually weird though because I assumed it would be in your time and then I looked and I was like "wait")

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(:0
Ari is THRRE hours behind?

:0)

Mireille Béatrice said...

(Blogs are automatically in PST if you don't change it--maybe because Google is in California?)

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(That is really silly
More people live on the eastern seaboard though)

Mireille Béatrice said...

(Well, no matter what the default is, a lot of people will have to change the setting, so I don't know that it matters much. However, I'm also kinda biased.)

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(Perhaps, Fabu.
*Hugs her Fabu*
I remember when I made this nickname for you
I think
:)
)

Mireille Béatrice said...

(( [hugs back] :-) :-) ))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(( I believe it was around the time that I was giving the name "Twip" and "Teip" and "Twippu" to Trip ;)
*Likes having special names*
I think it was also Fababoo and Fababyboo and That because Fabu :)
*Feels special because of the nicknames*
Fabuuuuu *Snuggu*))

Mireille Béatrice said...

(( [nods] Fababu too.

You're quite good at nicknaming. :-) ))

Mireille Béatrice said...

((Well I love having nicknames, so thank you. :-)
[cuddles]
I don't really have any nicknames irl. :-/ ))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((That's okay, Fabi. I have your back, now *kiss*)

Mireille Béatrice said...

(( [cuddles] ))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((:3))

*Adra will walk with Alastair, then, back down to the restaurant to meet with the stranger*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Elle is actually at her house right now, but the "town crazy," Monsieur Forestier, will be lurking near the restaurant, and he will give Adra and Alastair a suspicious look]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She will just look around for the stranger*hmm...
*Will go get some food in the meantime*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he intends lead Adra further down the street, but pauses when they see they're being watched suspiciously* *he wonders to Adra whether she thinks they should talk to this man*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Pauses too* *She didn't notice* I think so... *Will take his hand*

Mireille Béatrice said...

*M. Forestier les regarde avec un air dédaigneux*

[Mr. Forestier looks at them with an air of contempt/disdain]

*Il aperçoit que Alastair le regarde et il détourne les yeux*

[He notices Alastair looking at him and averts his eyes]

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*kisses her hand, and then turns his attention to the "town crazy"* Can we help you?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Will gently urge him to speak to him* *Adra doesn't want to speak first*

Mireille Béatrice said...

Non, vous ne pouvez pas m'aider, mais vous pouvez vous aider. J'ai vu que vous parliez avec M. Sauve terre. Il vaut mieux que vous le fuyez comme la peste.

(No, you can't help me, but you can help yourselves. I saw that you were talking to Mr. Sauveterre. It is better that you avoid him like the plague.)

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Forestier/crazy said that, not Mireille.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*Alastair fights back a smile at the mention of the plague* Why is that, if I might ask?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Thinks that the expression, too, is rather ironic* *Gently will note to Alastair that the stranger is, in fact, a woman, and not a man*

Mireille Béatrice said...

Les autres dans cette ville pense que je suis fou, mais croyez-moi. M. Sauveterre n'est pas un humain. Il est démon peut-être, ou sorcier. Je ne sais pas exactement, mais je sais qu'il est malfaisant.

The other people in this town think I'm crazy, but believe me. Mr. Sauveterre isn't human. He's a demon maybe, or witch. I don't know exactly, but I know he's up to no good.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Remembers now, that these were the times that you could have been burned at the stake*
*Well, they can make their own decisions* *Takes Alastair's hand again*

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Also going to note that M. Forestier has been drinking*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he thought so, but thanks Adra for the assurance*
*Alastair was also regarded as a demon or witch in this time, and decides he doesn't like this Forestier, but smiles anyway* Well, thank you for the warning. I'm sure I will avoid this mysterious person as vehemently as I do the plague.

Mireille Béatrice said...

Forestier: [Nods vehemently] Ça sera mieux pour vous.

That will be better for you.

[He smiles a little smile and walks away]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra frowns* Where is our mysterious friend, anyway? I don't think she is in the restaurant.

Mireille Béatrice said...

((Since one of my comments from before doesn't seem to have posted--I was going to use the verb éviter for "avoid," but I double-checked on word reference to see if there was a different one for avoiding people or something and I saw "fuir comme la peste," and I was like "yup. This phrase is perfect."))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((I still don't speak French, nor have any idea of what you are saying, but yay?))

Mireille Béatrice said...

(( [Nods] Yay! I love words a lot. ))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((*Hugs, happily*))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I also appreciate the commentary, although I regret that I also cannot understand your French.))

She told me where to meet her, at her house. It isn't much farther from here.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((I think Ari is asleep, and in my time zone now, where is it 12:15 AM.. So I might suddenly disappear, Fabu :)
I'm sorry! :(. ))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Oh.
Okay
*Will gently climb onto his back*

Mireille Béatrice said...

(Fuir comme la peste = to avoid like the plague)

Je le fuis comme la peste = I avoid it/him like the plague

Tu la fuis comme la peste = you (singular, familiar) avoid it/her like the plague

Elle les fuit comme la peste = She avoids them like the plague

Nous te fuyons comme la peste = We avoid you (sing fam) like the plague

Vous nous fuyez comme la peste = You (formal and/or plural) avoid us like the plague

Ils me fuient comme la peste = They avoid me like the plague

((Happy French lesson of the day!))

Mireille Béatrice said...

((If y'all need to disappear, that's ok. I'm kind of baking an ice cream cake. Not that I can't bake and be here, but if you were to poof, I wouldn't die of boredom. Take care of yourselves.))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I'm sorry for the slow responses- Aretha's Internet was quite slow, but she thinks it may be fixed now.
Sleep well, if you go, my dear Noelle.))

*smiles, enjoying the contact, and will carry her there, to knock on the door*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((That French lesson was something that I didn't know I needed.
Okay, Fabu, thank you for understanding. It is likely that I will wait until Ari goes, then I will go. (Since, ofc, we are now in the same time zone)

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((*Kisses daddy's cheek* *Is a little kitten*))

*Adra will just be there- she doesn't really want to walk, and knows that her husband can easily carry her*

Mireille Béatrice said...

*Elle ouvre la porte*

[she opens the door]

Hello there. How's it going?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((*holds his kitten*))

We're better, I think. *but he will let Adra speak for herself, if she wishes* How are you?

Mireille Béatrice said...

I am alright. Shall we go collect corpses?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((*Is cute and wiggles her ears then nestled in against his shoulder*))

*Adra doesn't want to talk about it. *Hides more under his hair*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* Okay! Yeah, many corpses

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((*cuddles Noelle, and kisses her head*))

*sends his love to Adra, and lets her hide* Yes, I believe so. Thank you again for offering to help. Is there somewhere close by where we won't be seen?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Should they retrieve the younger Alastair first?

Mireille Béatrice said...

Well, no one will see you in my house if I draw the shutters. Will that do? If not, there's a grotto about a half mile outside the town, nobody ever goes there.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*pauses* *they should* My wife and I will have to make a brief stop first, but you will hardly notice we've been away. *he will still wait to get to a private place to take them, though*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Yes, that should do nicely. Thank you. *assuming he's correctly interpreted that as an invitation, he will step in*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Mireille steps aside to let them enter]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra won't hop off of her husband- she is happy right where she is, and will keep hiding*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he will let her stay on his back if she wishes* We'll be back shortly. *he will move himself and Adra back in time around 200 years, then*

*they'll appear in some woods, a little ways off the road the Alastair of this time is walking down, alone*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She will slide down his back* Alright, I got this.. *She will walk up towards the other Alastair, the younger one, to be quieter* *Then, will call out* Alastair.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he mutters unintelligibly to himself, under his breath, and then turns to face her* There's no one by that name here, I'm afraid. I am Niccolò. It's not my name, but I've taken it. And this isn't my body, but I'm wearing it. *smirks, and steps closer* I think it rather suits me, don't you?

Mireille Béatrice said...

(Je dois partir. Il faut que je nettoie la cuisine. / I must go. It's necessary that I clean the kitchen.)

(Je retournerai bientôt / I will return shortly)

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She sighs s little bit- he was a bit of a prick back then* Alastair, it's me- Adra.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*his smirk fades, and he turns away again to keep walking, shaking his head* There's no one by that name here.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((Alright.))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(Okay, Fabu!)

*She will chase after him and, if he allows it, and even if he tries to hurt her, she will try to wrap her arms around to his chest and try to stop him* Alastair, dear, it's me.. It's me.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*if he doesn't look at her, he can imagine that her voice is the one he remembers* I'm afraid I don't believe you. I hate to be the one to tell you this, but- as lovely as you may seem, you aren't real.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Hallucinations?
*Right*
*Tries to think, and knows what helps her current Alastair* *Will turn him around and kiss him fully, and holding him as close as possible*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*oh* *well, he won't stop her* *but he is surprised* ...That doesn't make you any more real, but even if you aren't, I'm not complaining. *he's cautious, but she is getting to him*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Alastair, I need you to listen to me. Last time we met, I had to change your memories of me. That's why I look different. I couldn't risk messing up our timelines when we meet for the first time, but.. Please, I need your help. *She will kiss him again, standing on her tippy toes to do so*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I Msd now. Goodnight.))

*he will let her kiss him, and then takes a small step back* If... If you were, really, Adra. I would want to know that's who you are, and not someone else who stole my memories. And, what would you ask of me?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

* tilts her head* How can I prove it to you?


*Pauses* I had to change your memories of me so that you didn't remember me looking this way. But, in the future, you and I are married. And after about 500 years of voices and hallucinations and things, we found out a way to separate the names. And we need your help to do just that.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I don't know. Do something only Adra could do. *pauses, and offers her the hilt of one of his knives* Turn this into something else.

So you're saying you want to fix this lovely damaged mess I've made myself? Perhaps I want that in the future, but not yet.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She smiles* You got better* *If the knife is not poisoned or cursed in any way, she will take the knife, and twist it around, so that it makes a makeshift bracelet*

I know- that's why I need you to help me with the older version of you. This won't affect you, the younger version.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(( I have just read Fabi's part about "Richard Blacksmith" and lol-ing so hard, because of the irony ;) it's like Richart de Craon
Which brings me to ask, for when Ari is here- is this Niccolò, or Alastair's hometown? ))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((It is intended to be Niccolò's hometown, but because Fabienne has to fit it into her story, Ari thought she could just assume they went to eat in another town if need be.
I also noticed the similarity in names.))

*it isn't* *so it really is her* ...Alright. Whatever you need, Adra, I'll help you to the best of my ability.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((But where they are right at this moment is somewhere else entirely.))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Will take the knife, and straighten it out again* *Calls over behind her* Alastair, we are good to go.

Mireille Béatrice said...

((Yeah, I've been trying to be fairly vague about it so it doesn't contradict anything you already specified but also I can't be too vague or it's a bad plot, so yeah. We can assume whatever we need to.))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

((Alright :D))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I agree.))

*Alastair eyes the older version of himself suspiciously as he walks out, but accepts that he must be real, as well* Why do you look like that?

You'll pick up a shapeshifter later.

So the two of you are married, and you time traveled to get to me as a child?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* Yes. We are collecting all of the bodies after you have stolen the names.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

How many? *he looks to the other version of himself*

53, in total.

We must've gotten very good at this.

*the older shrugs* You'll learn to live with it.

But now it's finally too much, I suppose. Well, just tell me what you need me to do. *he turns his attention to Adra, then* I never thought I would see you again... *his eyes grow distant, fixated on something else, but he breaks himself from it* But you've done more for me than anyone else ever has. I'm glad to be able to do something for you.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Smiles gently, and will climb up, so that she is hugging him* *Wants him to be present, and hopes nothing is bothering him* The... Only downside is that, after this, we will have to wipe your memories. If you keep them, it will change time, and could stop us from every being married, or happy- *Panic is in her voice*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*hugs her back, and nods* *he doesn't want her to feel panic* I assumed. It's alright...

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Is sorry for it, but will just hug him* *Is happy and blushes- he cares for her already*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*of course- she has been so good to him* *he has cared for her since he was eight* What do you want me to do, then?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Can you take us back in time to the morning after and town where your name was stolen?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Alright.

*the older will project a more specific time and place, and then they're back in the house of their mysterious friend*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Is happy with that* *Slides down, but still holds the younger Alastair's hand*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[blinks] Hello.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Hello.

*the younger looks around, and acknowledges the stranger* Who are you?

Mireille Béatrice said...

The name I go by here is Fabien Sauveterre, but I quite like the name Cédric, so you could call me that instead if you'd prefer. It matters very little to me.

I'm here to help out as needed.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Alright. *he opens his next question to Adra, as well* What do we do now?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Um.... we go travel in time to when the first name was stolen?

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Shrugs--she's just tagging along, not planning stuff]

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I'll take this one. *older Alastair offers a hand to the stranger* *the younger will touch his shoulder, and he assumes Adra will move closer*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra will, and does, move closer* *Likes having two*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Takes Alastair's hand]

[Resists the urge to hum "We're off to see the wizard."]

[It's been too long since she was in a time where people would get references like that--she's made a habit of stopping herself from saying them]

Mireille Béatrice said...

((I just realized I missed the perfect opportunity to say "Allons-y!"))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

(Teehee!)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I am terribly sorry about that- I'm back, now.))

*moves them through time again, pushing them a few years forward* I just left the body, this time, so I'm not quite sure where she would've been taken. So I would propose that we wait in the area to find out, unless anyone else has a better idea.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Nods* Alroght, I am okay with that. If anyone takes her to bury her, perhaps we can project an image, or something, and take the real body.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he nods* We could do that.

Mireille Béatrice said...

I have a shovel and some bread in my cloak pocket if either of those items would be useful.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra's stomach rumbles* The bread might be needed down here..

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Pulls out a loaf of bread, tears off a piece, and offers it to Adra]

Mireille Béatrice said...

((The bread was kept in a paper packet, which she had to unwrap to pull out the bread. Also--it's not super high-quality bread, but it is reasonably fresh (baked the day before)))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She nibbles on the bread like a little animal*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*the Alastairs aren't particularly hungry, but are grateful to their new friend for producing the bread and feeding Adra* Thank you. *the older kisses Adra's head*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Is ve ry cute*
Question.
Is the body still here?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Yes, it's still there. *I should mention, when they are now, it's quite late. They're in another smallish town, this time in England, and the body they're waiting around for is in a house across the street*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Is there any way to tell if the body will be missed if we do away with it?

Mireille Béatrice said...

We could pretend to be gravediggers and say we'll bury it, then just dig a hole and fill it in again.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Giggles* I mean- do we know if anyone takes the body at all?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*pauses* No, I'm not sure. I just left it there- I don't know what happened to the body. *glances at the younger for confirmation, who nods* But one of the problems with that is that there is a possibility for the corpse to affect our timeline. Or it could be just one of dozens of bodies disposed of at a time, where it probably wouldn't be missed. For that reason, I thought it might be best just to watch and see what happens, but I will defer to your judgement if you disagree, love. *kisses the hand of his wife who is, after all, cleverer than him*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Blushes* Alright.. so, what, do we just.... Sit and wait for the body to decompose?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

...Perhaps.

*the younger speaks up* We could take shifts watching it, so only one person actually has to stay here, until something happens. *pauses, thinking* Or I could time travel forward bit by bit until something happens.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Bites her lip* Would the second option take a lot of energy from you?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*the older answers for him* Yes. But it would save us time.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Tries to think which would be better for them* *Wants the second option, but doesn't want to waste all of the younger's energy*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*the older Alastair nods* What do you think we ought to do, Fabien?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Will huddle closer to her boys*

Mireille Béatrice said...

((I should probably attempt to wake up now. Ok))

[She has no clue, but doesn't want to sound like an idiot, so she thinks for a moment]

If you use up a lot of energy, you'll have to take time to recover, right? So, how much time would it actually save, and how valuable is time in this specific situation?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra nods* Good questions... Good questions indeed.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

...That's a fair point. *sighs* It'll take me a few hours to recover, likely, but I don't know how long it'll take for someone to get the body. It could be hours, or possibly days. I don't have a way to tell.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

Hmm... I suppose we can skip?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Do you want me to bring all of you?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

I'm... No, it's fine. Perhaps it may take even more energy to do so

[Nods at what Adra said]

If you don't want to do it alone, maybe you could bring one person, but definitely not all of us. You're better off reducing energy loss as much as possible.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I'll just bring the body back, then. *so the younger Alastair will disappear*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She shuffles closer to her husband, and will slide under his coat* Who gets to keep the coat?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*pauses* ...That is an excellent question. Really, Niccolò should have it... *but then where will he keep all the knives*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[gets the bread out from her cloak, tears off a small piece, and eats it slowly]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Blushes* I will make you one.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I would adore it, darling.. Thank you. *kisses her hair*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Loves him* Want one like the one you have?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he loves her, too* I have rather grown to like it, but if you're making it, I'd leave that up to you.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*She thinks* Alright. We will make it when we get home, okay? *Kisses his cheek*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Thank you so very much, love. *he so adores her*

*but will turn his attention to the stranger, for now* Suddenly it comes to my attention that we know almost nothing about you. What can you tell us about yourself?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*And she loves him* *Will hug him, nestling her head into him*

Mireille Béatrice said...

That's a rather vague question. What do you want to know, exactly?

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra's voice is muffled* Where you're from.. If you practice any magic..?

Mireille Béatrice said...

I was born in the United States in the year 1995. I am effectively a human metal detector. I'm trying to teach myself how to influence the metal too, but I'm not very good at it yet.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*That sounds very familiar* Can you remind me of your name again..?

Mireille Béatrice said...

Well, I'm not sharing my given name, and the name I took. [she grimaces] I'm going to pretend I never took it. It's really stupid. So Fabien Sauveterre is the only name I'm telling you.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Smiles a little* Alright, Fabien.

Mireille Béatrice said...

[She's slightly unnerved by the way Adra said "Fabien," but she isn't sure why]

[fidgets slightly]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra just cuddles her husband, then*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

That sounds like quite a unique ability. Do you mind if I ask why you chose it? *he will cuddle his wife in return*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Likes his snugs*

Mireille Béatrice said...

Well, once I have the training to bend metal instead of just sense it, there are all sorts of applications for it. Art, weapon-making, possibly automatons... The list goes on.

Even just the metal sensing is useful though. If someone were to try to sneak up on me, they couldn't bring a metal weapon with them or it wouldn't work.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra nods* *That is very helpful* *Is trying very hard to not make a sound*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Oh, I see. *Fabien must notice him very easily, then*

*he will ask Adra through their link if she's alright*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Squirms once* *Breathes out slowly* I think that this is young Fabi.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*...yes, that would make perfect sense* I think you're right...

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Yup. The 2014 and later Fabi could count how many knives he has and what types of metal they're made from (unless the metals were unfamiliar to her), but even the 2012/1500 "Fabien" sees Alastair as very "bright" with her metal senses, though she doesn't have the level of detail yet]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

I am right, silly. *Sometimes things go right over his head*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I'm afraid I'm too old and delirious to be as perceptive as I once was, my love. But I don't need to be so long as I have you. *kisses her head*

*perhaps I should mention that the younger one only carries ten, just for reference* *personally thinks that her discipline is well chosen and rather impressive*

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Awh, that's really sweet* It's okay, old man. *She is teasing*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*he accepts it as an endearing tease* *adores her*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Is unaware that Aladra's mental conversation is going on]

[taps one of her feet along with a song that's playing in her head]

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Will be very tentative* May I have some more bread?

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Nods] Of course.

[She has about two thirds of the loaf left]

[Pulls out the packet, unwraps it, and tears off a decent-sized piece for Adra]

[to Alastair] Would you like any?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

No, I'm alright. But I do appreciate your sharing.

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Voices a quiet thank you, and then will nibble on it like a little animal again, chewing little pieces off at a time*

Mireille Béatrice said...

[Nods]

[After she gives Adra a piece, she takes a smaller one for herself and puts the remainder back in the packet in the pocket in her cloak]

Mireille Béatrice said...

((This is completely unrelated, but I just found a bus transfer ticket from a transit company that hasn't existed since 1973, and it's got a lovely old-fashioned font on it and the paper smells nice and has a really nice off-white yellow-gray color.))

Noelle: Daddy's kitten and hugging friend said...

*Adra rips her piece into thirds, and gives part of it to her hairband, and will place the other into her pocket for when the younger returns

(:0 old thing smell!! Yum ;)
Msd!)

Fabien Sauveterre said...

((It smells very paper-y!))

[Fabien(ne) attend. Elle mange son morceau du pain]

(Fabien(ne) waits. She eats her piece of bread.)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*Alastair will eat his third* Thank you, love.
