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.

"Well, I kind of knew it myself, I guess... But my grandma called me the same thing... Or at least I think she's my grandma..." She replies, sort of trailing off at the end.

"Thank you." She smiles a bit, possibly glad she made a friend.

"Ooohhhh, I think I'll even make an 'Amnesiac's discount'. Of course that pretty much probably only applies to us, but hey!" She gives Auggie a thumbs up with a corny smile, as Shanghai appears seemingly out of nowhere and hangs onto Alice's outstretched arm, using it like a swing.

"Heheh... It would apply to my brothers, too, but I doubt they'd be interested in coming here."

"Pffft, they're fearless." She replies, in a bit of an admirable tone.

"Heheh, I bet if we tried we could scare them, right Shanghai?" The doll jumps up onto her head and lets out a quiet laugh.

"Hm! They're not scared of anything!" She replies, in a way that suggests she isn't actually offended.

Alice gives her a smile and heads for the cash register, ready to ring up the doll for her new friend.

She gazes at the doll again as she does.

She reaches into her pocket for her money bag in anticipation.

"Let me see..." She checks her bag and in a few moments produces a number of coins that equals the price.

Alice takes the coins and puts them away, giving Auggie a big smile. "Perfect! Take good care of her, ok? If there's anything you need I'll be right here!"

"Ok! Thank you very much, Ms. Alice!" Auggie smiles, bows politely, and heads out of the store with the doll hugged tightly in her arms.

Alice waves Auggie out and goes back to adjusting dolls, Shanghai wandering back into the back of the building.

Several days later, there is a loud knock at the door, as if someone was impatiently looking for the person living here.

The door gives with the knock, since it was unlatched for the day's business, and it rings the bell, but no one is apparently in the shopfront at the moment other than the person-sized doll that minds the counter when Alice is busy. The smell of something baking seems to be wafting through the open door behind the counter.

The cloaked woman at the door approaches the doll, somehow looking both calm and frustrated. "Excuse me, I'm looking for Alice." the look on her face indicates she's no ordinary customer.

The doll tilts its head and speaks in an echoing voice. "She will be out in a few minutes."
