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.

"What?" She pretends to not hear, covering her tracks as she mixes up ingredients.

"Never mind." She says with a small sigh.

Alice feels bad. Here she was, crying that this woman she didn't know anything about had left, and now that she came back, she wasn't really sure what to say. She wasn't sure why. She continues with the food, though. Hopefully something would come to her by the time they were eating.

Elsie seems to be pondering the same thing on her end, although she knew exactly why.

Alice pushes it out of her mind and turns to clean some dishes and utensils off at the sink, humming a song that popped randomly into her head. She wasn't sure what it was, but she always seemed to start humming it while cleaning or sewing.

Alice doesn't notice, continuing to hum.

She finishes scrubbing the dishes and sets them on the table just in time to flip the pancakes.

"OK! Would you grab it out of the cupboard behind me and set it on the hearth then?"

Alice returns to humming as she flips the pancakes again.

Who flips pancakes more than once? Alice does.

"Hmmm..." She starts motioning to her fingers in a counting motion, looking at the ceiling.
