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.

"Thanks." she nods and waits in the same spot until she came out.

The doll stares blankly at her for the next five minutes.

She occasionally glances at it, but prefers to look around the room itself.

One of the dolls jumps off a shelf and runs into the back room, as the smell of baking gets a little stronger. Maybe too much stronger... There might be a hint of a burning smell.

She seems to be about to just walk right in after catching the scent.

A sound of frustration can be heard from the depths of the back room, and what sounds like something dumping.

She gives up and heads in.

The doll speaks, "Miss, you're not allo-" already out of earshot, as it isn't able to talk very loud.

After passing through the workshop, the visitor sees Alice scraping thoroughly burnt cookies off of a pan and into the lit fireplace. She sighs, talking to herself without noticing the intruder. "I need to stop reading while baking..."

"You were always a big dummy when it came to these things..." the girl speaks up as she approaches.

Alice jumps back in surprise, holding the tray up as a shield with cookies still stuck to it. "Ah! Who are you and how did you get in here?"

"Who am I? Cute. You know who I am." the girl replies, pulling down her cloak and exposing short, brown hair and a pair of rabbit ears shooting straight up.

"Um... I don't remember you, sorry." She takes another step back but lowers the tray. "I kind of lost all my memories before about 12 years ago."

"That's right, it's... Wait, what?" she steps back, looking a bit surprised.

"Yeah um... Sorry if I should know you? Hmm, maybe it was more than 12 now..." She seems to have already forgotten that this is a person she possibly has never met before who is in her home as she sets down the cookie tray on the mantle and adjusts the dress of one of the dolls next to it.

"No? Oh your ears look really soft.." Distracted by fluffy.

She lunges forward and reaches out to feel the woman's rabbit ears.

Meanwhile, Shanghai tugs on the back of her cloak, having come from who knows where, as she wasn't in the room before.

"Hey, what are you doing? Stop that! You know I hate that!" she tries to back away, nearly tripping over Shanghai.

She does stop, rather jerkily though, as though she didn't have a choice. Her eyes take on a glazed look and she just kind of stands there, still as a board.

Shanghai dodges the woman's feet and runs over to hug Alice's leg.

"... Hey, what's with you? Adonia to Alice?" she waves her hand in front of her face.

She blinks and her eyes take back their color, as she continues to reach for the woman's ears. Before she can react she has already brushed her hand over them. "Ohhhh they are soooo sooooooft." She doesn't seem to notice Shanghai clinging to her leg with a frown.

"Huh? You didn't say anything." She lets her hand down.

"Yeah I did! What's with you?" she replies, her voice seeming to show both annoyance and concern.
