[16:38] Happy: then I guess Luna gets a chance to confront Karen at some point. Either in the main room or when they go to bed. Your choice.
[16:39] Shadowcaller: What was the last thing that happend?
[16:43] Happy: [04:41] Happy: "It was worth it."
[04:41] Happy: She exchanges a secret smile with Arim.
[04:42] Happy: (alone in the main room of the tavern? or alone after they go to bed?)
[04:42] Shadowcaller: (Any.)
[04:42] Murska: 'I'm sure it was.' He laughs.
[04:43] Shadowcaller: Arim smiles back of course.
[04:50] Happy: I doubt Arim would leave her alone in the main room. :P
[04:51] Happy: She might need protection from some drunk guy stumbling into her chair!
[16:46] Shadowcaller: Well, Arim will stay with Karen as long as possible. But Luna will come up to them and say that she and Karen need a moment alone…
[16:47] Shadowcaller: He looks oddly at her and then glances at Karen "Is it okay?"
[16:53] Happy: She smiles at him. "Of course."
[16:54] Shadowcaller: He nods and walk away a bit. Luna sits down beside you.
[16:56] Murska: (Did you know that giantitp is the 901th most visited site in Latvia?)
[16:56] Murska: (yay random trivia)
[16:56] Shadowcaller: "So… how are you Karen?" Luna ask. She appears a bit bothered.
[16:57] Happy: "I'm just a bit chilly, but I'm warming up now."
[17:00] Shadowcaller: "Good…" Luna glances into the fireplace for a moment and then turns and look diectly into your eyes "Whats up with you and my brother?"
[17:02] Happy: Karen looks away. "We're… friends?" (Question mark in her voice)
[17:03] Shadowcaller: "Friends?" Luns sounds sceptical "I see what your doing, I hear how he talks about you."
[17:04] Happy: "What I'm doing?" *confused* "I'm not doing anything."
[17:07] Shadowcaller: "Oh come on Karen, I can see how you talk and look at each other."
[17:08] Happy: "I..I like him… I'm not doing anything wrong…" Her tone is a little defensive.
[17:11] Shadowcaller: "He's my brother, do you really think you two could work out?" It sounds more like a question then a accusation
[17:13] Happy: "Work out..? Um… I don't know?" She turns a little to face the fire, shivering a bit more now than just from the cold.
[17:15] Shadowcaller: "I don't wnat my brother to be hurt, he's very inexperienced. Just look at the last time he faced the outside world."
[17:16] Shadowcaller: *want
[17:19] Happy: Karen's eyes fill with tears. "You think I'm experienced? You think I even know what's going to happen to me when I get to Derim?"
[17:22] Shadowcaller: Luan pauses a while, thinking "You lived in a city. I assumed you would be…" It comes of a bit as an exhuse.
[17:23] Happy: Without a word, Karen gets up and walks away from her.
[17:25] Shadowcaller: *off
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Luna dosen't follow. She seems shaken.
[17:27] Happy: (Link:
[17:27] Happy: Karen isn't going anywhere in particular… just trying to get away. She'd go outside if she weren't still so cold from before.
[17:28] Shadowcaller: Arim will try to talk to her.
[17:29] Happy: I guess she goes to an empty table, somewhere as far from Luna as possible, and sitting in the corner, shoulders slumped and face down to try and conceal her tears.
[17:35] Shadowcaller: She can hear Arim sit down near her.
[17:36] Happy: She doesn't look up.
[17:42] Shadowcaller: "Karen…" He says in a shaky voice. "Eh…" He appears unsure what to say. "I'm sorry." He finally blurts out."
[17:43] Happy: "You didn't… " *sniffle sob* "… it's not your fault"
[17:48] Shadowcaller: He puts her hand very gently on her shoulder.
[17:48] Shadowcaller: *his
[17:49] Shadowcaller: "What did she say?"
[17:51] Happy: She shakes her head. "I can't… "
[17:51] Shadowcaller: "Then don't…"
[17:52] Happy: She's really upset… I don't think she's going to be able to talk at all.
[17:53] Shadowcaller: Arim will stay with her as long as he can.
[17:53] Murska: Derek heads to Luna. 'Hey. What'd you say?'
[17:54] Shadowcaller: "That I'm a bleeding idiot…"
[17:54] Murska: 'Doesn't sound like you.'
[17:54] Shadowcaller: "I can't stay…"
[17:54] Happy: (Oh hey… just told your daughter she was a whore… no big deal…)
[17:55] Shadowcaller: "I…" Luna gets up from the table (Not what she meant, but eh:P)
[17:55] Shadowcaller: Then she leaves the inn.
[17:56] Happy: (That's what Karen heard though)
[17:56] Murska: Derek shrugs and stays. It's his favourite spot near the fire anyway.
[17:56] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I know.)
[17:59] Happy: Eventually Karen composes herself somewhat. "She hates me."
[17:59] Shadowcaller: "She said that?" Arim seems shocked.
[18:00] Happy: "i can tell."
[18:05] Shadowcaller: "I can talk to her."
[18:05] Happy: "No…"
[18:06] Shadowcaller: Arim goes quiet, not really sure what to say.
[18:08] Shadowcaller: "She's unblanced right now… her friends… I'm sorry for what she did."
[18:09] Happy: She takes the pebble out of her pocket and brings it up to the table, looking at it and turning it over in her hands.
[18:11] Shadowcaller: "Are you better? Maybe I should have wished for my family to not hurt anyone instead…" He says with a sigh.
[18:12] Happy: Karen sighs. "It was just words."
[18:16] Shadowcaller: "Words hurt, you were crying."
[18:17] Happy: She forces a smile. "I'm okay now."
[18:18] Shadowcaller: "I still need to talk to her you know…" Arim seems troubled
[18:19] Murska: (Ooh yeah. The Joker, all time best… ME.)
[18:20] Happy: She hesitates… then puts the pebble in his hand. "Okay."
[18:20] Happy: (huh?)
[18:21] Murska: ((Link: this, best score in the world in PC version)
[18:23] Happy: (hmph… /I'm/ the all time best Joker.)
[18:25] Murska: (go ahead and play. Not a hard song. :P)
[18:25] Shadowcaller: "It's your Karen, you picked it up."
[18:28] Happy: "It's ours." Karen says. "
[18:29] Shadowcaller: "I don't deserve it…"
[18:29] Happy: She turns to look him in the eye. "Don't say that. Don't ever say that."
[18:30] Shadowcaller: He looks back, he seems very doubtful.
[18:34] Happy: "You're a good man."
[18:36] Shadowcaller: Arim sigh and takes it "I just wish that my sister could get along better."
[18:36] Happy: "You aren't responsible for her."
[18:38] Shadowcaller: "Karen, I like my sister and I like you, I would want you to get along… and now she can't."
[18:42] Happy: Karen looks down. "I'm sorry."
[18:43] Shadowcaller: "It's not your fault Karen, it's hers."
[18:47] Shadowcaller: (What is Murska doing anyway?)
[18:47] Happy: (GH, probably)
[18:47] Happy: So I guess Arim goes out to find her?
[18:48] Shadowcaller: Yeah.
[18:51] Happy: I guess Karen will sit there feeling awkward and scared and lonely then.
[18:56] Shadowcaller: (pokes Murska.)
[18:57] Murska: ?
[18:58] Happy: He doesn't know how to be a good father. I think he intends to let her sit there feeling lonely.
[18:58] Murska: Who, where?
[18:59] Happy: Karen was sitting at a table in the corner crying, then Arim went and talked to her, then he left to go find his sister.
[18:59] Murska: ah
[18:59] Happy: Now she's all alone and feeling awkward and scared and lonely.
[18:59] Murska: Right. Hmm.
[19:00] Murska: Well, assuming Derek hasn't fallen asleep already he'll probably notice and walk to her. Probably mentally exhausted from everyone getting emotional not to mention still not getting to sleep after helping kill an infernal(not that he did anything) and travelling the whole day.
[19:01] Murska: 'Hey.'
[19:04] Happy: She forces a smile. "Hi."
[19:05] Murska: 'Want to tell me?'
[19:07] Happy: She looks down, twisting her hands. "You like her, don't you?"
[19:08] Murska: 'Luna? Yes, she is nice. Sometimes.' He looks at her. 'What'd she say?'
[19:14] Happy: "She thought… because I'm from the city…" She struggles, swallowing hard. *very small voice* "You don't think that, right?"
[19:14] Happy: (Yes, I'm aware she didn't give enough information)
[19:14] Murska: 'Think what? I grew up in that city, you know.'
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (Okay, here is the start of the map…)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[19:16] Shadowcaller: 1= southshore
[19:17] Shadowcaller: 2=the inn where Hector and Wren started
[19:17] Shadowcaller: 3=derim
[19:17] Shadowcaller: 4=stormwind
[19:17] Shadowcaller: 5=Lugias cove
[19:18] Shadowcaller: 6= ashenvale
[19:19] Happy: "She thinks I'm a… a… a harlot." she finally whispers.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: 7=andern (the village Derek visited and stopped the cult.)
[19:19] Shadowcaller: 8=Sindra
[19:20] Shadowcaller: 9= Hill post (Where Sylvia lived.)
[19:20] Murska: 'What?'
[19:20] Murska: 'Why would she think that?'
[19:21] Shadowcaller: 10= the place where wolfy entered Ruthan.
[19:21] Happy: "Because I'm from the city."
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Any other places that needs to be marked?)
[19:22] Murska: 'Well that's just stupid. Someone has misunderstood something, we'll clear it up and everything'll be fine.'
[19:23] Happy: "She doesn't like me spending time with Arim."
[19:24] Murska: 'Hmf. She isn't his mother and shouldn't step between you two.'
[19:28] Happy: "So… you don't think… I've done anything wrong?"
[19:29] Murska: 'Of course not. There's nothing wrong with liking someone.'
[19:31] Happy: She smiles, and her cheeks turn a little red. "I think he likes me too."
[19:32] Murska: 'Of course he does.' He smiles back. 'I just need a glance of you together to see that.'
[19:35] Happy: This makes her cheeks turn even redder. "We… we saw something tonight."
[19:35] Murska: 'Hm?'
[19:40] Happy: "There was someone playing a flute, and then… something came to listen. Something like a giant bird. I thought at first it was a demon, but it didn't do anything hostile. It just seemed to want to hear the music."
[19:43] Murska: 'Wait, like a giant bird…'
[19:43] Murska: 'Who was the player?'
[19:43] Happy: "A boy, maybe a few years younger than me."
[19:44] Murska: 'Odd. I think we should try and find him. Maybe he's our Child.'
[19:46] Happy: "I didn't think of that."
[19:47] Murska: 'Whoever he is, it might be important.'
[19:50] Happy: "We didn't see where he went."
[19:53] Murska: 'Oh well. We'll search tomorrow. But aren't you tired?'
[19:54] Happy: "Yeah."
[19:54] Happy: "Actually… I'm exhausted." she says, suddenly realizing it
[19:56] Murska: 'Thought so.'
[19:57] Happy: She looks towards the door. "But…" she's waiting for Arim, of course.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: Arim will return soon.
[19:58] Happy: (Don't make me go to bed yet, dad! I'm waiting for a boooooy!)
[19:59] Murska: 'Oh, I see. Well, be sure to go to sleep soon.'
[20:00] Murska: He puts a hand on her shoulder. 'And… come talk to me if there's a problem.'
[20:00] Shadowcaller: (No discipline!:P)
[20:00] Murska: He smiles and stands up.
[20:00] Murska: (She's an adult.)
[20:01] Happy: She puts her hand on his and looks up at him, smiling happily. "Thanks."
[20:02] Murska: Arim returns?
[20:02] Murska: 'Oh, here comes your boyfriend now.' He grins and heads off as her focus is probably elsewhere.
[20:02] Happy: Well that makes her turn bright red, as she turns to look at Arim.
[20:02] Murska: (Daaaaad!)
[20:03] Shadowcaller: Luna enters shortly after him, it have been raining, her hair is wet and stripped. Arim is almost dragging her into the inn.
[20:04] Shadowcaller: Luna is shaking quite a bit as Arim makes her sit down on a nearby chair, he asks her something in their lanaguage and she nods. Then he turns toward Derek and Karen.
[20:05] Murska: Derek sits back down on the seat near the fireplace.
[20:05] Shadowcaller: "Derek, could you be so kind to get something warm for her to drink?" Arim asks.
[20:06] Murska: 'Oh, all right.'
[20:06] Murska: (Leeches, all of them!)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Arim nods, "Thanks."
[20:07] Shadowcaller: He says something else to Luna and she nods yet again. He let's go of her and sits down near Karen "Are you okay?"
[20:08] Happy: "Yes."
[20:08] Shadowcaller: "Good, she's sorry…"
[20:10] Happy: She swallows hard, and looks at Luna.
[20:11] Shadowcaller: Luna is looking blankly into the table. It's hard to see her face with her hair hanging down all over it.
[20:11] Shadowcaller: "She's blaming herself a lot, over her friends… she acted so much better, I thought she was okay."
[20:12] Murska: Well no, duh. :P
[20:12] Murska: Derek brings her drink.
[20:12] Murska: Then he sits down next to her.
[20:12] Happy: Karen waits to see if Luna is going to speak for herself.
[20:12] Shadowcaller: Arim sigh "Want to talk to her?"
[20:17] Happy: "Luna, I think you should go change into some dry clothes," Karen says gently.
[20:19] Shadowcaller: Luna reacts as Karen speaks to her and looks up, brushing away some her hair "…I'm sorry Karen."
[20:22] Shadowcaller: "I shouldn't have done that."
[20:26] Happy: "I know… this has been hard for you," Karen says awkwardly.
[20:28] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I shouldn't have spoken to you so soon after… I thought I was much better then I really were and I screwed it up."
[20:30] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh and glances at Derek.
[20:30] Murska: 'But nobody meant any harm. Come on, drink this, you're wet and freezing.'
[20:30] Happy: "We're all tired."
[20:32] Shadowcaller: Luna takes a sip out of the muh Derek offers her. "Yeah… I'm going to get changed and then go to sleep… Arim, you don't need to worry about me anymore."
[20:34] Shadowcaller: Arim nods quietly.
[20:34] Murska: 'But he will anyway. We'll all worry about each other. That's what friends and family are for. Now everyone should get to bed and look at things tomorrow.'
[20:35] Shadowcaller: (And we do get to bed?)
[20:36] Murska: yup
[20:37] Happy: Karen is kind of hoping Arim will talk to her alone again, but she's too shy to say so
[20:38] Shadowcaller: Arim will stay with her after Luna have gone to get her clothes changed.
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "Are you better now? It was hard to get her… she thought you hated her."
[20:41] Happy: "No… I don't…"
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Arim smiles a bit "Thats good at least. But she really regret what she did, she couldn't have been more clearer on that point."
[20:43] Happy: She looks down. "She told you then..?"
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "It wasn't clear what she said to you, but she don't hate you Karen."
[20:46] Happy: Karen kind of wants to change the subject. "I told Derek what we saw…. except the last part…"
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Oh… do you think it was a real wish? I mean… how can we tell?"
[20:48] Happy: "When it comes true?" she says, meeting his eyes.
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "I guess." Arim suddenly grins "…but I had imagined flashing lights or something like that."
[20:52] Happy: "You should have come in when the rain started."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: (Murska why do I imagine you would have reserched something like this?
[20:52] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "I couldn't have left Naria out there Karen."
[20:53] Shadowcaller: *neria
[20:53] Happy: "She wouldn't come in?"
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "She didn't want to at first… she blamed herself a lot as I said."
[20:55] Happy: "I guess… we should get some sleep…"
[20:56] Shadowcaller: He nods "We should, I guess your sleeping with Derek?"
[20:57] Happy: "I guess…"
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "I mean… you could sleep in the same room as me if you want."
[20:59] Happy: She blushes. "I think your sister needs you."
[21:00] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, it was only if you would feel safer…" Arim looks directly down on the table, she can most likely tell he is blushing as well.
[21:04] Happy: "Derek won't let anything happen."
[21:05] Shadowcaller: "I know… he's a warrior, I'm not."
[21:05] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[21:06] Happy: "I would feel safe with you too…"
[21:06] Shadowcaller: Arim blushes and looks away "Eh… thats good…"
[21:10] Happy: (haha… added that to the ON FIRE!!!! thread)
[21:11] Shadowcaller: (^^)
[21:11] Happy: "Well….. goodnight…."
[21:12] Shadowcaller: "Good night, see you tomorrow…" He dosen't seem to want to show his face.
[21:13] Murska: (He's been replaced by a demon!)
[21:13] Happy: (gasp!)
[21:14] Shadowcaller: (Anyway…) Next morning, you are all down (or asleep upstairs depening on the character) eating breakfast.
[21:15] Shadowcaller: Luna have had her change into a very similar clothing.
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "So… what are we doing today?" She asks Derek.
[21:17] Murska: 'Well, I heard of something interesting yesterday. I think we'll investigate for this Melwin Jagger for a while before heading on.'
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "I'm not against it… we better move on as fast as possibler thought. I don't like to draw any demons here."
[21:19] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh "So, do we start before the kids are up? I hope you aren't mad at me for last night…"
[21:24] Happy: Karen is upstairs, trying to clean herself, before putting her dirty clothes back on.
[21:25] Happy: Then she comes downstairs.
[21:26] Shadowcaller: Luna glances at her as she come downstairs.
[21:26] Murska: 'It's not like you've done anything for me to be mad about.'
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "She's your daughter Derek…"
[21:27] Murska: 'And she and your brother are totally in love. Isn't it cute?'
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "Totally…?" Luna seems to be a bit awkward with the subject. "They are still young…"
[21:29] Happy: Karen gives Luna a weak smile as she sees her, and comes to the table.
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "Eh… do you need to burrow some clothes Karen?" She says when she passes her.
[21:30] Murska: 'That's why. They're still young.' He laughs.
[21:30] Happy: "I don't have anything but what I was wearing that night."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "I have some more change, I'm not sure if it fits you, but you can try it if you want."
[21:33] Happy: "Thank you."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: Luna nods "No problems…"
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (When did Derek laugh anyway?)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: (I think he did it before Karen came in?)
[21:34] Happy: (probably)
[21:36] Happy: Karen sits down and eats some breakfast
[21:37] Shadowcaller: Arim comes down after a while and sits down with her.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "So where do we start Derek?" Luna says, trying avoid what Derek have been talking about
[21:38] Murska: 'Ask around, I guess.'
[21:38] Murska: (sleep…)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: (oh >.>)
[21:39] Murska: night
[21:40] Shadowcaller: Night Murska
