[act]Ari and Soonkar enter the beautifully set up Library[/act]
Ari: Doesn't it make you want to weep? :D
Soonkar: My costume isn't THAT bad!
Ari: No, no. I mean't the sight of all these books! [act]Makes sweeping gesture with arms[/act] It's truly a thing of beauty.
Ari: Stop looking at me like that! At least I'm not going to get beaten up by the myriad of guests dressed up as Zombie annihilation experts.
Soonkar: .....beaten up?
Ari: [act]Nods sagely[/act]
Soonkar: Oh, aaah haaa. Very funny. Weapons aren't allowed. Even I know that.
Ari: You just keep telling yourself that [act]indicates Min and Miryum walking by with bats in hand[/act]
Miryum: [act]mid-conversation[/act] The books are amazing, but if INES can really store more information than that Googly -
Min: - Google -
Miryum: Right, the Google, then I don't see why she couldn't have stored all the books. Use the space for saving more people.
Min: Spoken like a true Knight, but the books still have their place. Computer storage isn't flawless. Speaking of which - say, INES, can I request a song?
INES: You can try. I may or may not play it after that.
Min: [act]to INES[/act] Oh, you know, that's fine, if you don't have it, you can't be expected to store everything --
INES: State your song or cease prattling!
Min: :D Heh. Can you play Don't Stop Me Now, by Queen? Pretty please?
Miryum: [act]shrugs[/act] Anyway, I just think that books being so brittle and space being so -- [act]spots Soonkar, stops in her tracks and grabs Min's shoulder[/act] WHAT is THAT?
INES: [act]sighs[/act] The music starts
Soonkar: Good evening! [act]waves[/act]
Min: XD [act]calling out to Soonkar[/act] Don't you mean, "Brains"?
Miryum: [act]indicates cricket bat[/act] Shouldn't we...
Min: [act]shakes head[/act] That's Ari's +1. Don't think she'd appreciate it!
Miryum: But aren't we here to protect people from zombies?
Soonkar: [act]from across the room[/act] We prefer 'the Living Impaired', thank you!
Min: Not that zombie.
Soonkar: LIVING. IMPAIRED.
Helena: [act]wanders into the Ballroom with a suddenly re-acquired baseball bat and backpack[/act] Woah... [act]gapes at all of the books[/act] I know what I'm doing for the rest of my 6 days of life... [act]spots Soonkar[/act] [act]squints[/act] Not sure if child zombie or guest in very small zombie costume... :-/
Soonka: [act]faintly from across the room[/act] LIVING IMPAIRED!
Deb: [act] Drags Billy Thunder past a row of books.[/act] Now just you make sure you give me the predetermined sign if you need to...go.
Billy: Woof,, woof, bark.
Ravyn: Look at all these books! Aren't they amazing?
Kerd: I'm glad one of us is enjoying them -_-
Ravyn: *is drooling*
Helena: Wait, you can't read?!
Ravyn: This is a travesty of justice! >:(
Helena: ::) Don't mind her, she does this sometimes...
Kerd: *nods stealthily*
Ravyn: ...injustice, I say! How can people not teach children how to play Xbox?! Life gets lonely without someone to play tekken with!
Helena: Give her a few...
Ravyn: ohmylud, is that a zombie?! CHAAAAR- Oh look, 'A history of Hogwarts'!
Kay: [act]walks in and looks around at all the books[/act] Wow, this library is amazing.
Ford: [act]confused[/act] So who do I use this on again? [act]indicates gun[/act]
Kay: Um...people who look like [act]looks around and points to Soonkar[/act] that. But don't shoot that one. I think it's someone's guest.
Ford: [act]still confused[/act] Okay...what if there are Citizen Gods here? Can I shoot them?
Kay: You know what, don't shoot anyone unless other people are attacking them first okay? Just have fun and try not to die. [act]hears music and starts to sing along [/act] Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball...
Ford: [act]nudges Kay and points to Billy[/act] What on earth is that?
Kay: That's a dog.
Ford: Let's go and have a look. I've never seen one before!
Hell: [act]pats Kerd consolingly on the head[/act] There-there. She does this to everyone.
Kerd: :-/ [act]is now having 27th thoughts about his choice of date[/act]
Ravyn: [act]takes a breath[/act]
Hell: [act]points quickly to distract her[/act] Look! A model boat!
[act]from the depths of past Obernet events, a voice can be heard to shout indignantly "SHIP!!"[/act]
Kerd: [act]whips his head back and forth, trying to find the source of the ghostly yelling[/act] What the..?
Deb: [act]passing by[/act] Who knows what will appear at the [strike]end of the world[/strike] Mystics Ball? [act]shrugs[/act]
Hell: [act]tentatively[/act] ...boat?
Indignant faraway voice: SHIP!
Indignant faraway voice: SHIP!!!
Indignant faraway voice: SHIP!!!!!
Hell: it's like a game of Marco Polo! :D
Rosamunde: [act]walks into the ballroom[/act] Oh ... so many books. No wonder the technoguilders were so impressed with the INES complex.
Tonks: [act]casually strolls over to the books[/act] |:| Rosa! Guard my back.
Rosamunde: [act]spots Soonkar[/act] Zombies? o_O
Tonks: Nope, just trying to look normal. [act]starts smelling the books[/act]
Rosamunde: X:S What in the lud's name?
Tonks: Roll with it or I'll burn you at the stake.
*scp* : [act]looks their-a-way[/act]
Tonks: ... um like at a metaphorical pillow-like fluffy stake ... and ... um by burn I mean tickle ... with cute little kittens. |:|
*scp* : :S
Tonks: You know I lessthanthree you right? [act]goes back to stroking books[/act]
Rosamunde: lessthanthree o_O
INES: The keyboard derived heart made up of the less than symbol and the number three, which is often used as a verbal expression of amorous feelings.
[act]projects the <3 onto Rosamunde's palm[/act]
Rosamunde: ... oh ... erm, thanks?
Soonkar: I'm beginning to regret my choice of costume. I never should have listened to that Woman.
Ari: What woman?
Soonkar: The one who told me that the Zombie Apocalypse was coming, and that this [act]indicates costume[/act] was the best thing to wear.
Ari: Lemme guess. She was about this tall... [act]Holds out hand indicating hight[/act]
Ari: With brown hair...
Ari: Bit up herself, annoying, carries a lightsaber?
Soonkar: Yes, yes and....a what?
Ari: Glowing green sword.
Ari: Nope. Don't know her. [act]Walks over to the *scp* to check security[/act]
Ravyn: |:| SHIP
Indignant voice: BOAT! ...ah, crud
Ravyn: :D This is so much fun!
Ravyn: Now, I have a big announcement, everyone...
*Loud, slightly annoyed barking can be heard*
[act]A tone sounds from the speakers set up throughout the Library[/act]
INES: We interrupt the festivities for an important announcement from your Hosts
[act]No one moves....or speaks[/act]
Meza: [act]Prods Ari[/act]
Ari: Oh! Right. Well, due to the current threat to my dates life, all weapons are hereby relegated to the bunker until further notice.
Soonkar: [act]Visibly relaxes[/act]
INES: No such bunker exists within the Bunker. To maintain safety for all guests, any weapons present have been exchanged for a rubber equivalent. Please do not question how this was achieved. just know that I am very tired and will be taking a cyber nap over the next few hours.
Random Guest: But How Shall We Defend Ourselves!?
INES: Thank you for your attention. Please resume Human interactions.
[act]Another tone sounds indicating the end of the announcement[/act]
Kelda: *wanders in to library* I can't believe I didn't bring my card...
Rushton: *is standing, arms crossed, raises an eyebrow speculatively at this* Hmm?
Kelda: So that I could borrow some of these books...its a beforetime thing
Rushton: Well, the world is ending in a few days, I shouldn't think you should be wasting time on such things.
Kelda : *stares*
Ravyn: Do I spy a Rushton?! ;D
Kerd: Uhhh.. milady, why does he look so afraid? o_O
Rushton: *squeaks* Becauseshethrewmeintoanicecoldpoollasttimewemet
Ravyn: Because... reasons! :D
Hell: Only one problem...
Ravyn: :nods: The books.
Rushton: [act]sighs in relief[/act]
Kerd: If you're looking for pools, it would be logical to find them in the Lounge area with all of the trees and such... right?
Ravyn: Yes! Good boy, Kerd! :D [act]pats him on the head[/act]
Hell: [act]sing-song voice[/act] Oh Kelda~~ we may have to borrow your date for a bit soon~~ :D
Blackbird: [act]looks around[/act] Analivia, I know I said I'd dance with you when we got to the Ballroom, but....uh...[act]waves arm to indicate walls of books[/act]
Analivia: But you said you'd show me how to dance so I can impress -
BB: We'll dance, I promise but all these books.... [act]trails off and begins walking towards nearest books[/act]
Helena: [act]isn't seen by BB[/act]
BB: [act]bumps into Hell[/act] Ooof! Ah Lud, Hell, I'm sorry, I was distracted by the books!
Hell: That's ok my dear, happens to us all [act]pats BB on the shoulder[/act] Now, if you could excuse me, I see Kelda over there by the Biographies
BB: Why? Oh....right... Come on Analivia, I think I hear Queen playing! ;D
Deb: I think there's something I need to be doing.
Billy: Woof, woof, woof.
Ari: I think my date could use a drink.
Deb: Ahhh, that's it. [act]wanders off to open the Bar[/act]
Min: But, but...puppppyyyyyyyyyy
[act]Min sadly watches puppy wandering after Deb[/act]
Min: Come back, puppy! [act]moves to follow them[/act]
Miryum: [act]knocks Min on the head with rubber cricket bat[/act] We're not spending the apocalypse trailing after Billy Thunder!
Min: [act]rubbing head[/act] But...[act]points[/act] puppy! Look how happy he is in his little bow-tie!
Miryum: That's hardly a valid argument.
Min: [act]crosses arms like a tantrum-throwing three-year old[/act] Fine. What do you want to do?
Miryum: Find the Knights, the horses, ride out, save the world. In that order.
Min: Ohh, can I be a knight?!
Miryum: I don't know, are you a coercer?
Miryum: ...can you ride a horse? Know any martial arts?
Miryum: ...what CAN you do?
Min: I can make you a website :D ?
Miryum: A what?
Min: ... :O
Loren: [act]stares[/act] books....
Loren: :rolling: ;R books...
Ariel: [act]grabs nearest heavy book[/act]
Ariel: Is that Rushton?
Loren: You sick sonofagun.
Kelda: *examines blurb of book*
Rushton: *seems to be shrinking into a corner*
Kelda: Dont worry, no pools in the library...I think
Rushton: *grabs a book and looks around suspiciously*
Arwen: [act]walks in trailed by Ceirwan, speechless[/act]
Ceirwan: :O So many books! I never thought I'dd see such a thing.
Arwen: [act]runs over to the nearest shelf[/act] Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy. [act]runs to another shelf and fingers the books[/act] Science fiction. I think I'm in love!
Ceirwan: o_O You're n love with books?
Arwen: In a manner of speaking.
Ceirwan: So, ah, what are we going to do in our last days?
Arwen: Dance, drink, be merry and read, although not necessarily in that order. [act]tries to pick up a book[/act] Hold these for me would you Ceir?
Ceirwan: [act]awkwardly takes the roses[/act] So why are you the only with with roses? I thought you said it was customary, a requirement of the ball.
Arwen: :$ [act]picks up and book and hides her face in it[/act]
Helena: [act]gets distracted by the appearence of Cierwan[/act] Doctor? o_O [act]sidles over[/act] [act]casually checks for pulse... or pulses[/act] ...Not Doctor. :(
Ravyn: [act]drags Hell away[/act]
MM: [act]enters with Zarak in tow[/act] oh my lud! the amount of books in here! this is so perfect!
Zarak:...I thought we were at a ball -_-
MM: yes, yes...there will be plenty of time for dancing. Do you know how to dance? I'm sure there is a book explaining how to somewhere.. [act]ducks behind a shelf[/act] found one! [act]hands a rather large tome to Zarak with the title 'The beginners guide to Ballet, tap, square and irish dancing'[/act]
Zarak: [act]eyes the book with distaste [/act] Some how I don't think this book will help with Ballroom dancing?
MM: I don't think anyone will mind what type of dancing you do really.[act] spots Hell and Ravyn[/act] oo we must go and say hello to Hell and Ravyn! [act]dashes off with Zarak still clutching 'The beginners guide to Ballet,tap, square and Irish dancing'[/act]
Gevan: What happened to my sword? It was so heavy and now it feels like hardly anything.
EI: The magical powers of INES.
Gevan: Magical? Is INES one of the Magi? I swear I would have met her before.
EI: Not Magi, magical. It's a Beforetime thing. And before you were complaining that the sword was annoying. Now you're worried that it's not a sword anymore?
Gevan: It's the end of the world isn't it? How is Porro supposed to save the world without his weapon?
Gevan: What did I say?
EI: If these guns were real, I would be using them on you right about now.
Gevan: How do guns work exactly? They don't look very practical.
Ariel: [act]See's the gun and walks over[/act] Are those 9mm pistols? May I borrow one?
EI: Rubber, remember?
Ariel: Curse that meddling computer! I was this close to developing new plague seeds to wipe out the entire population while I hide in a Beforetime bunker and I got bundled up to this place.
Gevan: [act]Glares at Ariel[/act]
Ariel: I am so very scared. What are you going to do, coerce me to death with your pretty pictures? Absolutely terrifying.
Gevan: You're lucky the world is already ending. That's all I'm saying.
EI: Enough little boys. Look, books. Lots and lots of books.
Ariel: Are any of them on plague seeds or the art of meddling in dreams to get someone to do your bidding?
Ariel: Didn't think so.
Meri: O_O Wow...
Harri: Yes, it's a gigantic library.
Meri: Library... Giant... Library.
Harri: And I thought I'd have a harder job keeping you quiet. [act]clicks fingers dramatically[/act] All that planning for nothing.
Meri: Shh, Mr. Clown. Library.
Harri: ::) Yes, I think we've established that.
Meri: [act]is starting to drool[/act]
Harri: :P Let's go sit you over here for a minute, just until the shock passes. [act]leads Meri to a far corner of the room[/act]
