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.

She stares at Shanghai, then at Alice.

Alice has already turned around and headed back into the living space. Her slumped shoulders can be seen for only a moment as she turns the corner.

She sighs, then shakes her foot slightly, gently motioning for Shanghai to let go. ".... Do you really think I can help at all?"

Shanghai nods.

"Well... I can try, but no guarantees." she mumbles, slowly closing the door.

The smile on Shanghai's face is clear as she sits down on the woman's foot and points forward.

She sighs again, walking in the direction she's pointed to.

Alice is hunched back over the fireplace, scraping burnt cookie off of the rest of the pan again as they re-enter the room.

She just about jumps out of her skin. She also doesn't turn around when she replies. "I thought you were leaving...?"

"... Something told me I should stick around a bit longer." She replies, glancing down at the doll still on her foot.

Shanghai jumps off Elsie's foot and onto Alice's shoulder.

Alice doesn't move from where she is, and a barely audible sniffle can be heard.

Her ears pick it up rather easily, however. "... Are you crying?"

With swiftness, she moves to face her directly.

Alice's face is to the ground.

"If you're not crying, might I ask why your face is on the ground?"

She does, but she can't make eye contact even with Shanghai, who is literally grabbing at her face and making her look at her.

"Don't you think there might be a good reason for that?"
