PostSubject: Alice's Guardhouse and Dollshop   Wed Jul 01, 2015 3:36 pm

First topic message reminder :

A large, multi-roomed guardhouse set into Crystalpine's wall near a gate, originally meant for the living space of several guards. However, the others assigned there found Alice kind of creepy, and eventually an arrangement was made that there would simply be a post at the gate and the other guards would be moved elsewhere, while Alice was allowed to make it her home sweet home.

The front room, which is fairly large, is full of shelves and tables of dolls she has made. All of which are for sale. She keeps those she has used magic on in the back, though some of the sentient ones spend time in the shop as well, often playing with the local children who come to see the dolls and pick out potential birthday presents.

While she isn't always home to mind the shop, as she does have guard duties, she has a puppet that is capable of watching the store and talking to customers. Some of them may get creeped out, but they were probably going to get creeped out anyway.

Past this is her workshop, a room full of fabrics and spare parts, as well as all manner of sewing needles, hammers, tweezers, clamps, and other tools. There are a few grimoires as well, though they don't see use in the average doll's construction.

The other door to the workshop leads to Alice's living room, which has several bedrooms branching off of it on one side, and the kitchen and bathroom on the other. The additional bedrooms have been converted into storage for books, dolls needing repair, and an extra pantry. The livingroom itself is rather small, but only because of all of the furniture stuffed into it, with dolls sitting on most of it. It has a skylight as well as a few high windows, so it is well lit. There is also a large fireplace with a radio sitting on the hearth, the couch and two chairs facing it.

About half of the dolls in her living space have souls bound into them, and half of those are combat-ready. Half of the empty dolls are ready for use in binding, and the other half are dolls that she just really likes.

Her face scrunches up. "Hey, don't mess with me just because I'm an anmesiac. How did you get back here anyway?"

"I walked in." she replies casually.

"Look, never mind how I got in here! What the heck even got you like this?" she asks, noting it was perhaps a stupid thing to ask if she didn't remember anything up to a certain point.

"Um... I dunno? Maybe that guy who always comes and checks on me knows. He never told me his name though. Maybe you know him? White hair, green eyes. I think we must have trained together in necromancy or something, he does a traveling undead sealing thing."

"Are you talking about your brother?" She asks, more to test something than anything.

Her eyes take the glazed look again, her body completely still. It looks almost as if she's dead. Shanghai looks upset.

"What the hell..." she mumbles as she shakes Alice gently.

She snaps out of it. "Bwah! What are you doing?"

"Well I was here to give you something... But I guess it's pointless since you don't remember me anyhow."

Shanghai catches up while Alice seems to have given up, clinging to the woman's legs.

She pauses, looking down at her legs.

Shanghai looks up at her with a frown, trying to pull her away from the door and meeting no success.
