Lady Lydia Varvinden wrote:"Father, please, let me apologise for allowing Hans to get so...'caught up' in the situation. He is right in saying that our 'relationship' should be kept more secretive, however, to talk to a man of the church in such a way can be counted as highly unforgivable. Therefore, I'm apologising on behalf of Hans, and for the fact that it was my own life which brought such argument upon us. I never got to say this before you stormed out so please accept my most humble of apologies, and have a mead or two with us? " Lydia smiles towards the Father, feeling completely terrible for her life causing such an argument between the two gentlemen.

I thank you most humbly, but wine will do for me... getting drunk doesn't look good for a man of the Church, as I'm sure you can appreciate...

Edward looks around and realises he is pretty much alone in the tavern.

Oh... well, I suppose I had better be off then...

Edward leaves promptly for a warm bed and a good book

Edward walks back into the tavern and shouts:

A round of drinks for every man, woman and child in this tavern in the next hour, who can talk to me about anything!

Then Edward's voice quietens as he walks to a table and orders a drink

It's been too quiet in here for ages...

[~Let's do the time warp!~]
[It is now at the same time as the library]

There's a loud crash as the door is kicked open by Seamus. He quickly strides over to an empty table, picking up someone else's pint of mead along the way, before sitting and taking a hearty swig.
"I've been sober for too long..."

Cecil quietly enters, settling down at an empty table, mumbling about "...try new things..." to himself.
"...you know what... Barkeep, a pint of 'Macorkindale's' please."

Seamus sees Cecil enter, downs his pint, and calls him over.
"Cecil! Over here! Barkeep, put this man's pint on my tab, and I'll have another as well, if you would be so kind."
The captain looks around, realising the tavern is too quiet for his liking, so turns back to Cecil.
"I think we need some drinking songs, do you know the Amranian one about mead?"

He stands and turns to address the rest of the patrons.

Captain Seamus O'Malley wrote:"Is there a man in here who can play a flute or a fiddle?"
"As it happens, my parents made me take fiddle classes as a young child. If the barkeep has one I could play the tune. All I would need is a hummed rendition to mimic."
Cecil stands up to address the counter.
"Barkeep, do you have a fiddle? Also, please put any drinks this man orders from now on onto my tab."

[I'm assuming the barkeep has a fiddle in the lost and found Razz]
Seamus suddenly looks very impressed.
"Well, now I want to see what you can do! I'll tell you what, I'll sing an old song from the towns where I grew up, and you add the fiddle as you see fit, it's got a couple of good spots for improvising. Back home, we call it 'The Cat and the Moon'"
He downs his current pint, stands atop a chair, and begins to sing.
"There's an inn of old renown
Where they brew a beer so brown.
Moon came rollin' down the hill
One Hevensday night to drink his fill."

He gestures to Cecil to begin playing, and continues singing. The verse continues to talk of dancing cows and laughing dogs, before plunging into a chorus about the moon slipping in a puddle and downsides going up. Once again he motions to Cecil, signalling the first improvised section, and quickly downs yet another pint.

Cecil quickly finds the main tune and begins to play, keeping up eith the Captain's energetic song. When it is time to improvise, he breaks out into a full solo, adjusting the tune and bending the strings in a boncy tune that then drops back to the underlying tune of the song.

Seamus, now even jollier thanks to his hasty pint, is deeply impressed by Cecil's playing. He jumps up onto the table and begins dancing while singing the second verse.
"Dish from off the dresser pranced,
Found a spoon and gaily danced.
Horses neighed and champed their bits
For the bloodshot moon had lost his wits

Now cow jumped over, dog barked wild,
Moon lay prone and sweetly smiled.
Ostler cried, 'Play faster cat!
Because we all want to dance like that!'"
Again the captain slips into the nonsense chorus, punctuating the end of each line with a zealous "HEY!" before signalling to Cecil once more, clapping his hands together steadily to the beat to tell him that this is a long section of improvisation.

Cecil, taking a large gulp of his drink, breaks out into the second improvised section when signalled, singing as he does so, and hopping and dancing around the table.
"I say Seamus, this is a brilliant song, especially for drinking!"

"Aye, too bad it's not as widely known as other songs."
Seamus continues dancing, downing two more pints, then breaking out into a final (somewhat slurred) chorus:
"Downsides go up, hey!
Outsides go wide,
With a twiddleonthefiddleinthemiddlebythegriddle
And the moon slept 'til Sterrenday.

Upsides go west, hey!
Broadsides go boom,
With a batterandaclatteryoucanshattereveryplatter
But the moon slept 'til Sterrendaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
HEY!"
At this crescendo, the song ends, and the drunken captain collapses into his chair from exhaustion.

Hans strolls in through the door, looking around inquisitively.

"What on Xenos was that racket? I could hear it three streets away..."

He orders a mug of mead from the barkeep, gesturing toward the Captain.

"It's on him." He gives the barkeep a wink and stays at the bar, sitting on a stool and reading a book pertaining to the use of firearms.

The cinders in the fire hearth glow dully, then grow brighter.
They flare brightly for a moment, and then start to swiftly move.
Rising and dancing into the air, whirling, circling quickly, and within them an orange light flickers and burns.
A thin pillar of ashes and sparks forms, and they solidify, spiraling lights spin around them.
Suddenly a dark and abstract figure is visible there, inside the spiral, and with a flourishing swish the sparks burst harmlessly into nothingness.
In the space where the strange vortex had formed stands a feminine figure in a velvet coat.
Harmless flames hide within the folds of the garment, as the masked face beams a broad smile.

"Greetings Seekers! What a fantastic noise! And with a familiar voice too!"

The woman brushes her long hair from her face, and flicks some tiny grey ash from her shoulder.

"Now, how are we all? Keeping well?"

From his room upstairs, with a few glass vials and some herbs, Divah worked to brew his various concoctions in a trance-like mood. As he worked ink flew across paper in rough notes while an almost empty Book of Shadows was propped open, its few secrets open to him alone in the seclusion of his room.

The ink spilled from his quill as a magical disturbance shook him from his trance. Someone was giving off some unusual energies, and it was quite sudden, not the slow build-up that comes with regular mages who choose to pass by, this person had just appeared.

Setting down the quill and blowing out the various 'brewing aids' he had used to fill the room with scent, Divah grabbed his mace and composed himself before the door, leaving for the downstairs bar with his arms in wide, confident swings. The Eternal Void was cast in his mind as he began to stroll down the stairs, unsure of who (or what) he would find.

[I can't remember if I'm here IC, so I'll assume that I am Razz]

Johann rises from his seat, placing down his steel tankard with a splash. His hand goes to Hammer's hilt, and his stance lowers slightly, readied. His head tilts as he examines the woman frowning as he does so.

"Have we..met, before?"

Johann turns his head slowly to face Hans. A look of mild disapproval on his face. [---> -_-]

He sighs. "Be that as it may, we still need to know who she is and why she is in the fireplace."

He turns back to the woman, gesturing to her apologetically, as if to say: "Don't mind him, he's a bit crude."

Considering what Hans said, he laughs a little, and adds: "Nice entrance, by the way. Is materializing in fireplaces something you engage in often?"

She gestures taking off a hat, despite not actually wearing one.
"Your appreciation is appreciated." says the woman, executing a smart bow.
Standing straight again, she places a smart black hat of Gevellian style on her head.

"No apologies required, Johann. You won't need your sword. Did you not keep the pirate's blade? I don't believe I've met your friend-" *Turning to the other man* "...so you like my coat?"

As he gained a view of who was there, Divah stuffed his mace away; someone wearing such fabulous gear couldn't possibly be evil, so all was good in the world.
Leaning over the surprisingly sturdy rail down, he kept his eyes on the new addition to the guest list since he last left to brew. She was familiar to him somehow, it took a while for him to find an answer to his own questions about who she was, an adventure roughly 9 months back reminded him. She was around at the same time as the avatar of incredibly boring.

"Xyx... Is that you?"

Divah shifted on the stairs so his cloak sat more comfortably across his body, letting his elbows rest on the wooden rail, he tilted his head to the side slightly as he looked down onto the scene below.
