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 continues staring at the doll, as if awed by it.

"Heh, looks like we've got a winner. Do you want me to wrap her up for you?"

"U-Um, that's alright..." She answers without stopping her staring. Something about this doll felt very familiar to her, but she couldn't recall why...

Shanghai sneaks off somewhere while Alice gets a closer look at the doll her customer has picked out. "Hmmm... How much do you have, anyway? This doll's been sitting lonely for a good while, I could probably let her go for you cheaper than usual. She could use a good home."

"Really?" She turns to her, seeming rather surprised.

"Mhmm! I made her a good few years ago, and most of the kids don't really like her because she doesn't have a pretty dress. You look like you'll take good care of her, though."

"Thank you miss.. Uhhh... Oh, I forgot to ask your name. Heh, sorry." Alice gives a small, embarassed curtsy. "I'd do formal introductions, but you already know my name, it's on the sign."

"My name is Augustine. ... Or so I've been told..." She mutters.

"Oh? Have memories troubles? Well, I can identify with that. I don't even know if I have a last name."

"I don't really know what I'm missing, but there's people always checking on me, and Shanghai and Hourai are good conversation most days." Shanghai can be seen nodding from a shelf she somehow made it onto without being noticed.

"Mhmm! I guess they must have known me before, but I'm not really sure. They never said anything about it, they're just really nice and stuff."

"Ummmm.... Well there's Malphas, I think we must have apprenticed together or something, but I'm not sure. He brings some other people with him sometimes, and sometimes they come on their own. Sometimes I don't even notice them though, it's kinda weird."

Alice just kind of stares off into space, seemingly not hearing Auggie's comment.

"Um, ok...?" She seems a bit confused, but doesn't bring any attention to it. "Remember any other names?"

"Nope, not a one. I'm not actually sure they ever told me actually, now that I think about it, but they're all nice enough."
