Zerry says, "Phooey. Well I guess I'll ask around town about the guy and where he works. He was in such a hurry, he forgot to give me instructions!"

She looks around... then looks back at the squirrel. "I have some new friends! Wanna meet them? My name's Zerry! What's your name?"

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
she calmed down seeing Zerry was ok. she gave a slight polite curtsy " Sarah. I came to meet with my mistress Jamie. " she bit her lip now worried about upsetting her mistress with her tardiness.

Meiou on the inside grumbled to himself. He was sooo going to get Master Ducain back for this.Having to play a witches familiar was not what he signed up for. Though it sure beat what he had to play back under Master Ducain's teaching.

Meiou can sense Sarah's whirlwind thoughts rolling in his head:  Must get Meiou's stuff.  Must bring it to Mistress.  Must get back to Mistress.  Who's this Meiou?  Must not be late for Mistress.  Who's this grumbling thought in my head? Don't want Mistress mad at me.  Well, she never was that mad at me but neverthe..." and on and on, with some thoughts being a bit aware that something's a bit...off.




Mechanically, she's sensing Meiou's presence.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
She didnt understand who this meiou was but she turned and ventured into the inn heading upstairs to the rabbits room. she wasnt sure how she knew it was his place probably her mistresses doing. She was smart like that to tell her. she ignored the grumbling and random toher thoughts that made no sense and gathered up everything she could get ahold of. She then took it all downstairs to her mistress as fast as she could.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
  Okay Tark let's review.  He scribbles idly in a notebook to collect his thoughts about this sequence of events, and wanders back upstairs to double check his suspicions of just what room all that stuff came from.

  He wanders back downstairs, and considers the pile of Not Jamie's Stuff gathering around said witch.

  Now, the SMART thing would be to just ignore it, considering Jamie is the attractive lady and he's the half-orc nobody will care suddenly turns into a chicken in front of witnesses.

  But having a mostly functioning conscience is highly inconvenient at times. So when someone you were just talking to ran in barely concealed panic (If from Zerry), only for said witch to be so prepared to steal his stuff at a moment notice, she hired a maid... Yeah.

  So he asks the Squirrel "Excuse me, why are you taking stuff from someone else's room and giving it to Jamie?"

OCC: Tark's incredibly detailed notes.
Frowny and sad bunny heads alongside smiling and smug centaur and witch heads.
A bunch of question marks around a squirrel head with a loot bag.

Man, wish RPOL wasn't being so finicky today. I wanted to post this up hours go. "Oh my god RPOL is up! post! *connection not found.*

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
Zerry yelled after the fleeing squirrel, "I just met Jamie! ....well I guess she knows where she's going." What is it with small anthros running away from Zerry today?

The centaur heads back inside, motioning for Pyrus to come with and heads to Jamie. "Hey Jamie! Alexander disappeared and then some squirrel said she was looking for you."

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
OOC:  I'm assuming that Sarah is headed for Jamie's room, which she knows somehow.  She also hears Jamie's conversation to Zerry just in case she needs to explain matters.

(With RPOL being bitchy the way it is, you can understand my hiccups in the timeline.)

<br>

"Oh, 'Alexandar'."
Jamie said to Zerry.  "I just acquired his services because of some debts I paid off.  I'm having him move with me.  That squirrel you saw is Sarah, my familiar."

She then gets up from her bench.  "I have to go catch up with her then.  The poor girl gets worried sick about me.  I have a wagon in the stable near here.  If you want to help me out, you can meet me there in the morning. Blessed be, Zerry." She then leaves for her room.

<br>

Sarah's mind went.  'Oh, Mistress hired Meiou, so that's why I'm moving his stuff.  Wouldn't think of doing so otherwise.'

<br>

OOC:  I goofed.  Jamie would have called him Alexander.  This is what happens when I try to PBP just after I was DMing a Streamed Session on Roll20.  My Bad.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
  Okay, so apparently 'Alexander' was named Meiou Alexander.  "So.  Alexander, the rabbit who loudly declared he wanted nothing to do with working for your Mistress to the point of running away-"

  Speaking of running away from questioning as fast as possible, that's what he finds Jamie suddenly doing...  For someone who initially came off as sociable, it's turning out that the witch is more like a lot of idle rich he has done odd jobs for in the past.

  So Tark hates himself for wondering less what really happened to Meiou for the moment... And instead just how much the Witch is paying the rabbit (probably nothing, so better to wonder how much she might pay himself, instead).

  He looks over to Zerry, and says "Zerry.  Jamie might be offering a lucrative job.  But, don't take any payment but money from her, and don't put on any gifts she might offer except in a public place with witnesses... And if she's building a house out of cookies, we really need to leave immediately."

EDIT: OOC: Oh no, David used the name of his longtime friends character he's used to saying and typing 24/7? How could this happen!?
Yeah it's perfectly understandable.
I just assumed the Meiou usage was Jaime instinctively using that name because it's more bragging to use his real name, instead of admitting Meiou is clever by sticking with the rabbit's idea.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
Pyrus followed Zerry.  Though not as fast as the excitable centaur, he's able to enter the inn immediately after her through the magic of Droopy the Dog style scene transitions or whatever.  So he was able to catch enough of what was said to prevent him from being clueless about what's going on.  But even without Tark pointing out the crazypants obvious transparency going on, Pyrus could put two and two together.

He chuckles at Tark's comment.  "Sound advice.  I really appreciate how helpful you are to the generous lost girl."

To Zerry he says, "While I don't find myself inclined to be quite so quick to offer random strangers help with their... stuff...  I do happen to be headed in the same direction she mentioned.  And I imagine it would be slightly safer to travel as a group.  So if you happen to choose to travel with the witch, her familiar, and maybe the bunny that didn't get away, I'm hoping to be able to enjoy some more of your sunny disposition with them."

He gives her a small smile.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
Sarah somehow knew the door she was supposed to knock on, and was almost unsure if she knocked loud enough for her Mistress to hear.

Only to hear a "Come iiiiiin," in Jamie's voice.

Sarah opened the door to find Jamie fresh from a warm bubble bath, with requisite bubble bath scent, in a soft flannel pajamas, jotting in her journal.  Her Witch Uniform cleaned, pressed, smelling of lilacs and hung over a chair ready for the morning.

"Ah, my little familiar has returned," Jamie said with a bright smile.  "I hope things weren't as rough on you as previously."

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
The squirrel shook her head in reply looking around for some place to put all these things of the rabbits she had collected since he would be working for her mistress now. " Things are fine. Sorry being late again mistress... I tripped over a centaur girl and got worked up again"   she said with blush of embarrassment.

"Ooooh, that's all right, my pet," Jamie said as she scritched the squirrel's head.  "I think I can find a decent bad for you to put them all in.  By the way, I wonder what kind of stuff did he bring with him.  Care to show me?"

Meanwhile, Jamie reached into a large luggage on wheels and pulled out a Bad of Holding, perfect to put in Meiou's effects that Sarah gathered.

Also, being this close to Sarah's Mistress, Meiou could feel the connection between Witch and Warlock flow into him, it felt strange, unfamiliar, and yet, it felt like someone's slipping into him and putting him on, as if the Witch can sense his every thought, word, and deed, even more than the squirrel.

'If you ever want to feel the cool air on your fur rabbit, you better play along,' he heard Jamie say, a tinge of authority in her otherwise sweet and mischievous voice.

Or actually, he heard it coming out of his own throat and out Sarah's own mouth.




Edited.  Sometimes I get characters mixed up.

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
The rabbit felt all that and more indeed. It was almost overwhelming that is until the witch spoke directly to him which put him on edge again "Damnit woman its not like ive got much choice in the matter!" he would grumble in response

Sarah always one to try and please her mistress quickly dumped all of Meiou's things she had gathered into the. it seemed mostly clothes ,money and the outfit of Lily. Though that might strike her as odd. she knew about his bracelet yet why wasn't the girl in it. "Mistress you know I don't like it when you talk through me...

Jamie raised an eyebrow but nevertheless felt happy.  'Sarah's never did that before.  It must be Meiou's doing.' 

"My apologies," Jamie said as she scritched Sarah's neck, as motherly as ever.  "I'll won't do that again."  She then picked Sarah up to rub her neck...

...and popped up her headpiece just enough for her to see the rabbit's face.  While Sarah wasn't hurt by this move, Meiou is still frozen in the costume.  For Sarah, it was like the world went pause on her.

"I'm hoping that we can be on better terms, Meiou," Jamie said, her voice stern.  "Pippkin did tell you about how difficult you could be, especially with that big debt you had. He helped me a lot making Sarah which is the only way you'll ever go along with that, and even then, I'd have to trick you to put it on. I expected you to be avoidant when you were in the lobby, but I'm hoping that I don't have to charm you to get you to work with me."  Her eyes narrowed and flashed with power.  "And since I paid a pretty penny for your debt, you will work with me.  How we'll work together depends on that attitude of yours."

Re: Ęthercoil Introductions
She churred softly and rubbed into it. When her face was pulled up to her it was like she dozed off .

the rabbit shivered as his face could move once more. "Look if everyone hadn't been so determined to chat with me maybe we could of been more civil. I don't do the spotlight. I like the shadows. Though let us try to make this work peacefully."

"I was hoping you'd say that," Jamie said.  "I'm sure that you'll stay in the shadows as long as you're Sarah.  She's my familiar, while you, my pretty Meiou," she chuckled, "are now my loyal thief.  I'm sure they'll be a lot of jobs for you to do for me, and you can hide as Sarah in between jobs if need be."

Her eyes narrowed again.  "Besides, you might learn some other skills to add to your rougery.  I could teach you magic, if you're good.  A little arcane skills with your thievery, just like your old mentor, I can help you find him along the way.  I found the rabbit gentleman thief before.  Tracked him, caught him...*" Her whole face was like a cat playing with a mouse as she's remembering this.  "Good times, I must tell you, and I needed to let the bad girl in me out on occasions.  Keeps me from running afoul with the Three-fold law.  But then again the cretin did attempt to steal a grimoire of mine.  Point is, I got a hold of Pippkin Ducaine, and if you wish, I can find him again."

She then narrowed her eyes again, "But if course, I could just make you disappear for real, and you will be Sarah for the rest of yoru life."  She then popped a smile and shrugged.  "Your choice of course.  I paid a lot of money for your debt and I want to get my coin's worth."  She then looked right into Meiou's eyes, and he could even see the glowing arcane powess in her eyes.

"He tried to teach me magic said I didn't have the smarts for it. Look im willing to work with you and everything i just didnt like everyone wanting to talk to me and everything. You say you can find him well we can see about that. I'd say by now he's already found a way to get around that but I cant say for sure. "

"Oh, Pippkin Ducaine can hide very well from the commonfolk, Meiou," Jamie said.  "But not to someone who can see through birds and rodents.  Not to someone like me.  I was able to see him easily.  He's also not as knowledgeable as I am, because, Meiou..." She moved closer, looking right into the rabbit's eyes.  "...I can teach you where your mentor failed.  Sarah is more than just my familiar, Meiou.  She is also my warlock, and you can be the same as well, if you're willing.  Imagine, arcane powers can be yours, you can even become more powerful than that silly white rabbit."

From the glowing eyes of the Eladrin filling his vision, and the energy from Sarah's connection flowing through his body, Meiou can tell that she's telling the truth.

Jamie leans over as if to kiss Meiou, but then says, "In due time, rabbit."

She then snaps Sarah's head back in place, waking her back up.

"I'm tired, and I need a snuggle buddy for tonight.  I have a bath and suitable pj's for you, Sarah.  Once you clean up, join me."




OOC:  Still keeping things G rating.  Jamie is going to have Susan be a teddy bear to sleep with, nothing more.  Has any of you have a plush toy or a pet in your bed as a child?

"That's why I want you to come to bed with me, sweetie."  Jamie said as she lays down on the bed.  Fluffing a pillow so for her head.  "It's been a long day for you, a long travel, and now you must rest, so you can be a proper familiar."

Jamie takes Sarah into her arms and snuggles the squirrel into her chest.  She hums a tune, soothing the squirrel into a sound sleep and even affecting the rabbit inside to boot.




Mechanics wise--Jamie's humming contains a light charm effect she's doing while she's sleeping, easily resisted by Meiou if he wants to.  Otherwise, it draws him closer to Jamie, making him feel safe, warm, and loved around her.  At the most, it makes him a lot less grouchy around her, while not mind controlled.

A more flavor description of this charm is that Meiou would have feelings of warmth, hearth, and home whenever he's around Jamie, as if she has become a safe refuge whenever he's near her.  It's the same variant of 'Calm Emotions' that Jamie's mother, Silverskin, put on Jamie herself when she met.

Both would then run with that emotions and prompt the recipient into accepting them as their patron/mistress/Auntie/Grandma/Mother/insert your term here.  It's a common practice for witches seeking to teach the craft to the next generation.
