Kate has to find the Young Eben.
[10/31/2013 8:55:41 PM] Felix: Well, you're back in the library.  And there is no evil black wolf here.
[10/31/2013 8:55:54 PM | Edited 8:56:56 PM] Kate: Kate looks at the shelves!
[10/31/2013 8:57:16 PM] Felix: They are all intact.
[10/31/2013 8:58:28 PM] Kate: Kate frowns, and looks for Annie.
[10/31/2013 8:59:15 PM] Felix: Roll a d10!
[10/31/2013 9:01:12 PM] Kate: ((10!))
[10/31/2013 9:03:56 PM] Felix: Nice!  You find her pretty quickly.
[10/31/2013 9:04:32 PM] Kate: Um. I was wondering, have the Ambroses come home yet?
[10/31/2013 9:05:39 PM] Felix: Annie:  Not yet, miss, no. Do you need something?
[10/31/2013 9:07:08 PM] Kate: When do you think they'll be back?
[10/31/2013 9:10:17 PM] Felix: Annie:  Any time now, I believe.  They were going to pick up one of Mr. Ambrose's business associates and his family for the dinner.
[10/31/2013 9:12:09 PM] Kate: Kate nods.
[10/31/2013 9:12:23 PM] Kate: ... the dinner. I'm... singing tonight?
[10/31/2013 9:13:11 PM] Felix: Annie:  Yes, miss.  That is why Mr. Ambrose hired you, is it not?
[10/31/2013 9:13:35 PM] Kate: ... oh. Yes. ... what kind of music does he like?
[10/31/2013 9:16:05 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well, what do you sing?  I confess I don't know much about your career, except that Mr. Ambrose heard you sing back in America.
[10/31/2013 9:18:53 PM] Kate: I can sing anything I've heard.
[10/31/2013 9:20:28 PM] Kate: ... not necessarily *well.*
[10/31/2013 9:20:53 PM] Felix: Annie:  Oh, I'm sure that's not true.   You impressed Mr. Ambrose, that's for sure.
[10/31/2013 9:21:35 PM] Kate: ... what did he say?
[10/31/2013 9:22:59 PM] Felix: Annie:  Oh, just that he hired a talented American singer.
[10/31/2013 9:23:23 PM] Felix: Annie:  Mr. Ambrose likes all kinds of music, though, I'm sure anything you sang would be good.
[10/31/2013 9:23:32 PM] Felix: ((gonna get my mac and cheese!))
[10/31/2013 9:23:53 PM] Kate: ((Woot.))
[10/31/2013 9:24:04 PM] Kate: Well... I know a lot of drinking songs.
[10/31/2013 9:30:53 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well.... I don't know about that.
[10/31/2013 9:31:17 PM | Edited 9:35:41 PM] Felix: Annie:  I know Mrs. Millings is a bit of a teetotaler.
[10/31/2013 9:43:23 PM] Kate: ((Back! I tidied up a bit.))
[10/31/2013 9:43:34 PM] Kate: ((Not nearly enough, but every little bit helps. >.<))
[10/31/2013 9:43:44 PM] Kate: Mrs. Millings?
[10/31/2013 9:44:47 PM] Felix: Annie:  Yes, Mr. Millings' wife.  They're the family that Mr. Ambrose is out collecting.
[10/31/2013 9:46:14 PM] Kate: Oh. Um. Well, I like folk songs?
[10/31/2013 9:47:47 PM] Felix: Annie:  oh, that would be quite nice, I think.
[10/31/2013 9:48:16 PM] Kate: Kate is trying very hard not to panic.
[10/31/2013 9:48:43 PM] Felix: Annie:  Mr. Millings does not really enjoy gospel songs, so I think folk songs would be a reasonable compromise.
[10/31/2013 9:51:15 PM] Kate: Right. Right.
[10/31/2013 9:53:29 PM] Felix: Annie:  ...Mr. Millings might get a bit grabby when Mrs. Millings isn't watching.  So... watch out for that.
[10/31/2013 9:53:58 PM] Kate: Grabby?
[10/31/2013 9:54:21 PM] Felix: Annie:  Handsy.
[10/31/2013 9:54:35 PM] Kate: Handsy?
[10/31/2013 9:55:10 PM] Felix: Annie:  Lookin' for excuses to put a paw on your leg, for example.
[10/31/2013 9:59:43 PM] Kate: A paw?
[10/31/2013 10:01:35 PM] Felix: Annie looks at you oddly!  "You know.  Be inappropriate."
[10/31/2013 10:03:20 PM] Kate: Oh! Oh, oh, right. Well I'm *not* that kind of woman.
[10/31/2013 10:04:00 PM] Felix: Annie:  Neither are any of us.  His attentions tend to be most unwelcome.  Just warning you.
[10/31/2013 10:04:18 PM] Kate: He'll get a fistful of knuckle if he's not careful.
[10/31/2013 10:05:19 PM] Felix: Annie:  Oh!  Well, that would be something to see.
[10/31/2013 10:07:56 PM] Kate: I'd probably get kicked out.
[10/31/2013 10:08:31 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well... maybe.
[10/31/2013 10:08:49 PM] Kate: Mr. Ambrose probably does not like women who fight.
[10/31/2013 10:09:47 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well.  Allowances are made for you being... American, and all.
[10/31/2013 10:09:52 PM] Felix: She smiles helpfully!
[10/31/2013 10:10:11 PM] Kate: Enough to fistfight a guest?
[10/31/2013 10:10:35 PM] Felix: Annie:  I don't know.  But... probably not.
[10/31/2013 10:13:07 PM] Kate: Right. Right. I'll be good. ... besides, there'll be children there.
[10/31/2013 10:14:31 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well... Master Ambrose would probably enjoy it.  But yes, the Millings will have their daughter with them, so it is probably for the best that there be no punching.
[10/31/2013 10:15:17 PM] Kate: The boy would? Eben?
[10/31/2013 10:15:36 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well, yes.
[10/31/2013 10:16:04 PM] Kate: Likes a good fight, does he?
[10/31/2013 10:17:36 PM] Felix:  Annie:  Well, he's ten, right?  From what I hear, he's got a bit of his granddad in him.
[10/31/2013 10:18:37 PM] Kate: His granddad is wild too?
[10/31/2013 10:19:54 PM] Felix: Annie:  I wouldn't say wild.  A bit of a rogue, is all.
[10/31/2013 10:20:59 PM] Kate: Oh, well. There's nothing wrong with that. A boy should have a bit of rogue in him.
[10/31/2013 10:24:22 PM] Felix: Annie:  From what I understand, it skipped over Mr. AMbrose.  He's always been rather responsible.
[10/31/2013 10:25:16 PM] Kate: ... really. Well... I guess that makes sense. He runs the business.
[10/31/2013 10:25:23 PM] Kate: Kate thinks: And he kept his bastard.
[10/31/2013 10:25:53 PM] Felix: Annie:  And Mr. Ambrose - the elder Mr. Ambrose -  was all too willing to turn over the day to day when his son asked.
[10/31/2013 10:27:02 PM] Kate: Don't doubt it.
[10/31/2013 10:27:09 PM] Kate: He must have a head for business.
[10/31/2013 10:28:22 PM] Kate: I know the family's prospered. ... does he love his son?
[10/31/2013 10:28:41 PM] Felix: Annie:  .... how do you mean?
[10/31/2013 10:30:14 PM] Kate: Like a regular parent does.
[10/31/2013 10:31:00 PM] Felix: Annie:  He's... rather reserved.
[10/31/2013 10:32:40 PM] Felix: ((He's like the stodgy banker father from Mary Poppins!))
[10/31/2013 10:32:46 PM] Kate: I know English people are said to be. But...
[10/31/2013 10:35:20 PM] Felix: Annie:  He's not cruel to him.
[10/31/2013 10:35:30 PM] Felix: Annie:  Beyond that... it's not really my place to say.
[10/31/2013 10:38:20 PM] Kate: Oh. ... I was hoping he did.
[10/31/2013 10:38:53 PM] Felix: Annie:  I can't say that he doesn't.  But he's not.... demonstrative around us, I suppose.
[10/31/2013 10:40:06 PM] Kate: Really? Most people don't seem to even notice servants are around. Like they're not people like anybody else.
[10/31/2013 10:41:56 PM] Felix: Annie:  well, Mr. Ambrose isn't like that.
[10/31/2013 10:43:02 PM] Kate: Speaks well of him.
[10/31/2013 10:43:28 PM] Kate: Lookin' forward to shaking his hand. If that's right.
[10/31/2013 10:44:49 PM] Felix: Annie:  Why wouldn't it be?
[10/31/2013 10:46:30 PM] Kate: Well I don't know if you bow or curtsey.
[10/31/2013 10:47:37 PM] Felix: Annie:  Well, you can shake his hand, I'm sure.  He might kiss it politely, though.
[10/31/2013 10:48:20 PM] Felix: Annie:  For all that he's reserved, Mr. Ambrose isn't terribly worried about perfect etiquette.  He appreciates manners, more.
[10/31/2013 10:48:36 PM] Kate: That's just trying to make people feel at ease, isn't it?
[10/31/2013 10:49:49 PM] Felix: Annie:  The manners?
[10/31/2013 10:51:04 PM] Kate: Yes.
[10/31/2013 10:51:10 PM] Kate: ... may I take a book back to my room?
[10/31/2013 10:53:01 PM] Felix: Annie:  Oh, of course.
[10/31/2013 10:53:06 PM] Kate: Kate smiles.
[10/31/2013 10:53:12 PM] Kate: Kate looks for books about family history!
[10/31/2013 10:54:27 PM] Felix: Ambrose family history?  THere are a few!
[10/31/2013 10:55:25 PM] Kate: Kate picks one up and brings it!
[10/31/2013 10:56:13 PM] Felix: Okay!
[10/31/2013 10:56:45 PM] Kate: Kate goes to her room and waits for Fennick!
[10/31/2013 10:57:20 PM] Felix: Roll a d10!
[10/31/2013 10:57:58 PM] Kate: ((10!))
[10/31/2013 10:59:37 PM] Felix: He does not show up.
[10/31/2013 11:00:41 PM] Kate: Kate whews.
[10/31/2013 11:00:54 PM] Kate: Kate isn't sure what to do next, though.
[10/31/2013 11:03:00 PM] Felix: Well, you could read, you could poke around the house some, you could wait for the Ambroses to return....
[10/31/2013 11:03:30 PM] Kate: Kate reads about the family while she waits.
[10/31/2013 11:04:18 PM] Felix: Well!  There's no history of werewolfism, so it's kind of boring!
[10/31/2013 11:05:45 PM] Kate: Kate doesn't mind. It's her family now.
[10/31/2013 11:06:05 PM] Felix: Roll a d10!
[10/31/2013 11:06:21 PM] Kate: ((6!))
[10/31/2013 11:15:58 PM] Felix: You're sitting at the window seat!  You glance out and catch a glimpse of a wolf running around outisde in the grounds!
[10/31/2013 11:16:37 PM] Kate: Kate heads outside!
[10/31/2013 11:16:56 PM] Felix: It's getting dark, but you can make your way back to the front door.
[10/31/2013 11:18:01 PM] Kate: Kate does, and opens it and goes out!
[10/31/2013 11:19:00 PM] Felix: Heading to where you saw the wolf?
[10/31/2013 11:20:35 PM] Kate: Kate does, yep!
[10/31/2013 11:21:12 PM] Felix: Okay!  You spot the wolf.  It's big.  But it's not the evil black thing you saw earlier.
[10/31/2013 11:25:29 PM] Kate: ... oh.
[10/31/2013 11:25:32 PM] Kate: Kate waves to it.
[10/31/2013 11:26:42 PM] Felix: It leaps into the very wooded grounds!  Roll a d10.
[10/31/2013 11:27:37 PM] Kate: ((9!))
[10/31/2013 11:28:48 PM] Felix: You know there's no way the actual grounds were a forest like this... and you realize... this was how ten-year old Ebenezer saw the place.  That's why the manor seems so huge, too, probably.
[10/31/2013 11:29:31 PM] Kate: Kate brightens.
[10/31/2013 11:29:38 PM] Kate: ... Eben? That you?
[10/31/2013 11:33:25 PM] Felix: You hear a *wf* from the woods ahead of you!
[10/31/2013 11:34:20 PM] Kate: ... I suppose you don't have any clothes?
[10/31/2013 11:35:06 PM] Felix: You following the wolf?  He's not actually in view, he seems to be leading you through the woods.
[10/31/2013 11:36:01 PM] Kate: Kate runs after him!
[10/31/2013 11:42:38 PM] Felix: You find a small building! It's in pretty decent shape, looks like an old shed.  No sign of the wolf, though.
[10/31/2013 11:43:39 PM] Kate: ... Eben?
[10/31/2013 11:44:40 PM] Felix: No sign of him!
[10/31/2013 11:45:10 PM] Kate: Kate opens the shed door, brooch ready!
[10/31/2013 11:48:43 PM] Felix: Inside, you find what looks to be a smaller, scaled down version of Ebenezer's apartment in Wilde!  Kind of.  Not literally, but there are books everywhere.  It's like young Eben's secret clubhouse!
[10/31/2013 11:49:18 PM] Kate: Kate looks for the missing werewolf books!
[10/31/2013 11:52:17 PM] Felix: You find them!  There's one about werewolves, and there's a bunch of kind of paranormal bestiaries.
[10/31/2013 11:54:39 PM] Kate: Kate sits and starts reading.
[10/31/2013 11:56:12 PM] Felix: Well, clearly this is where Ebenezer got a lot of his initial werewolf lore!
[10/31/2013 11:57:21 PM] Kate: Kate reads all about it!
[10/31/2013 11:57:44 PM] Felix: You find a bunch of drawings he did, too, tucked into the book on werewolves.  Here's one with a wolf man in knight armor with a sword!
[10/31/2013 11:59:20 PM] Kate: Kate smiles.
[11/1/2013 12:01:05 AM] Felix: Another one is that same wolf man killing a black wolf with a scorpion tail!
[11/1/2013 12:01:37 AM] Kate: Kate *frowns.*
[11/1/2013 12:01:48 AM] Kate: ... makes sense, though, it's in Eben's head.
[11/1/2013 12:07:24 AM] Felix: Roll a d10!
[11/1/2013 12:07:42 AM] Kate: ((7!))
[11/1/2013 12:09:14 AM] Felix: You find the monster again, drawn on one of the edges of one of the pages of one of the bestiaries!  It's in there with all the pictures of knights fighting snails that you find in old hand-written volumes.
[11/1/2013 12:10:10 AM] Kate: Kate sets the book back down and goes out of the shed, willing the wolves to come!
[11/1/2013 12:10:29 AM] Felix: Probably where young Ebenezer saw the wolf-monster in the first place.
[11/1/2013 12:10:33 AM] Felix: What wolves?
[11/1/2013 12:12:35 AM] Kate: Kate wants the black one! Or the other one.
[11/1/2013 12:13:04 AM] Felix: No one shows up!
[11/1/2013 12:13:30 AM] Kate: ((Annnnd Once Upon a Time in Wonderland just referenced the Sarlaac. Sarlacc? I can't remember. Anyway, AWESOME.))
[11/1/2013 12:14:07 AM] Felix: you find several other of young Ebenezer's drawings of this scorpion-tail wolf beast, too.
[11/1/2013 12:15:42 AM] Kate: Kate heads back to the house.
[11/1/2013 12:16:58 AM] Felix: Okay!  It's pretty dark at this point!
[11/1/2013 12:17:53 AM] Kate: Kate looks for something constructive to do.
[11/1/2013 12:19:32 AM] Felix: As you're returning to the front door, you see a fancy coach parked outside and fancy people disembarking!

Kate smiles at them to see if they *want* to take notice of her.
[11/1/2013 7:31:25 PM] Felix: Well, they do.  Mr. Ambrose spots you.  "Ah, Miss Candlemas.  What are you doing outside?  It's gotten a bit dark."  He looks a bit like Ebenezer, but older, with thining hair cut short and a stately mustache.
[11/1/2013 7:32:22 PM] Kate: Just going for a walk, Mr. Ambrose. The grounds are beautiful.
[11/1/2013 7:33:00 PM] Felix: AMbrose:  Well, let me introduce you.
[11/1/2013 7:35:02 PM] Kate: Kate smiles.
[11/1/2013 7:35:51 PM] Felix: He puts his hand on the shoulder of mini-Ebenezer!  "This is my son, Ebenezer."  He gestures toward a stately british couple.  "This is Mr. Millings, a business associate of mine, and his lovely wife, Elizabeth, and their daughter, Jennifer."
[11/1/2013 7:38:48 PM] Kate: Kate offers a hand to mini-Eben first.
[11/1/2013 7:39:51 PM] Felix: He holds out his hand.  "Hello, Miss."
[11/1/2013 7:40:11 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  This is Miss Candlemas, from America, who has graciously come to sing for us.
[11/1/2013 7:40:35 PM] Kate: Kate shakes her future husband's hand, solemnly.
[11/1/2013 7:40:54 PM] Kate: You can call me Kate. Americans are informal types.
[11/1/2013 7:47:15 PM] Felix: Ebenezer looks up at his father, who gives im a little nod.  "Okay... Kate."
[11/1/2013 7:47:27 PM] Felix: Mr. Millings smiles.  "A pleasure to meet you."
[11/1/2013 7:48:01 PM] Kate: Nice to meet you too, Mr. Millings.
[11/1/2013 7:48:04 PM] Kate: Kate offers her hand to him.
[11/1/2013 7:48:34 PM] Felix: He takes it!  "So, what will you be singing for us?"
[11/1/2013 7:49:23 PM] Kate: Kate 's heart skips a beat from fear, as she gives Millings a firm, manly handshake. Which is, honestly, normal for her.
[11/1/2013 7:49:25 PM] Kate: It's a surprise.
[11/1/2013 7:50:34 PM] Felix: Millings:  WEll!  I look forward to it!
[11/1/2013 7:50:47 PM] Kate: Kate shakes Mrs. Millings' hand too.
[11/1/2013 7:52:39 PM] Felix: She shakes it!
[11/1/2013 7:53:23 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  Well, I hope you're finding everything to your liking, Miss Candlemas.  Ebenezer, why don't you and Miss Jennifer go and play.
[11/1/2013 7:53:49 PM] Felix: Ebenezer looks at the girl like he would rather chew his leg off.  "Yes, father."
[11/1/2013 7:55:14 PM] Kate: You have a lovely home, sir.
[11/1/2013 7:55:21 PM] Kate: Kate is longing for a wolf attack!
[11/1/2013 7:56:20 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  Oh, thank you.
[11/1/2013 7:56:38 PM] Felix: The party goes inside!
[11/1/2013 7:56:49 PM] Kate: Kate follows, still nervous!
[11/1/2013 7:59:03 PM] Felix: You go to a small sitting room, where drinks are served!  Looks like no one is expecting you to sing just yet.  Ebenezer and the littel girl run off.
[11/1/2013 8:00:58 PM] Kate: Kate prays for wolf attack.
[11/1/2013 8:04:33 PM] Felix: The men talk about business!  Mrs. Millings sits and sips tea sullenly.
[11/1/2013 8:04:46 PM] Felix: Mr. Millings:  so, Miss Candlemas, first time in London?
[11/1/2013 8:05:44 PM] Kate: Kate nods.
[11/1/2013 8:05:50 PM] Kate: It's beautiful.
[11/1/2013 8:06:56 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  I hope the staff have been accomodating.
[11/1/2013 8:07:56 PM] Kate: Very. They've been very kind.
[11/1/2013 8:08:21 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  I do appreciate you coming all this way.
[11/1/2013 8:08:28 PM] Felix: Millings:  Who are we waiting on?
[11/1/2013 8:08:42 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  Oh, the General and my father will be joining us.
[11/1/2013 8:09:04 PM] Felix: Mrs. Millings makes a harrumph!
[11/1/2013 8:09:16 PM] Felix: Roll a d10.
[11/1/2013 8:10:47 PM] Kate: ((1))
[11/1/2013 8:11:09 PM] Kate: ... I'm quite looking forward to meeting them.
[11/1/2013 8:11:35 PM] Felix: Millings:  Oh, the old warhorse is back from Africa?
[11/1/2013 8:12:43 PM] Felix: Ambrose's next words at cut off by young Jenny running in yelling something!  "Ebenezerwasbeinghorridandwewentintothetrophyroomandhewasmakingupawfulstoriesabouttheanimalsandthentherewasthisblackwolf--"
[11/1/2013 8:13:54 PM] Kate: ... black wolf? Where? Where's the trophy room?
[11/1/2013 8:15:24 PM] Felix: Mrs Millings:  Jennifer!  Don't make up stories.
[11/1/2013 8:15:38 PM] Felix: Mr. Millings:  I'm sure young Ebenezer was just teasing you.
[11/1/2013 8:15:56 PM] Felix: Mr. Ambrose, though, is standing up, clearly alarmed, and runs out of the room!
[11/1/2013 8:16:37 PM] Kate: Kate runs after him!
[11/1/2013 8:20:05 PM] Felix: He runs to the trophy room... and you think you might have determined the source of Ebenezer's dislike of sport hunting!  It's a huge room, filled with taxidermied animals from far away, exotic places.  At the back end, you find Ebenezer, hiding from the giant black scorpion wolf behind a stuffed tiger.
[11/1/2013 8:20:09 PM] Felix: Roll a d10!1
[11/1/2013 8:20:26 PM] Kate: ((10!))
[11/1/2013 8:20:36 PM] Kate: Kate runs to the wolf, grabbing her brooch!
[11/1/2013 8:21:55 PM] Felix: You grab the brooch!  It turns into a sword in your hand.  You remember what happened the last time you tried to directly fight this thing, and you recognize the sword, from one of Ebenezer's drawings, with the wolf-knight fighting the black wolf.
[11/1/2013 8:25:00 PM] Kate: Kate attacks it!
[11/1/2013 8:27:27 PM] Kate: Kate slashes with the sword.
[11/1/2013 8:27:52 PM] Felix: Roll.
[11/1/2013 8:28:29 PM] Kate: ((10 AGAIN. JESUS.))
[11/1/2013 8:30:26 PM] Felix: Hmm.
[11/1/2013 8:31:12 PM] Kate: Kate slashy slashes!
[11/1/2013 8:33:28 PM] Felix: You slash at it!  It lashes out with its tail, sticking you in the leg.  You put the sword in its head, though, splitting it two!
[11/1/2013 8:34:54 PM] Kate: Kate snarls!
[11/1/2013 8:40:02 PM] Felix: It's deeeeeeeead.  And your leg is numb.
[11/1/2013 8:40:31 PM] Kate: Kate looks down at her leg.
[11/1/2013 8:41:15 PM] Felix: Well, you got stabbed with it's venom-dripping stinger.
[11/1/2013 8:41:37 PM] Felix: Ambrose:  ...what is going on here!  Who are you?
[11/1/2013 8:44:19 PM] Kate: ... a monster was trying to kill your son. I killed it.
[11/1/2013 8:45:58 PM] Felix: Ebenezer runs off!
[11/1/2013 8:46:41 PM] Felix: Ambrose looks at the dead wolf.  "...what was it?  It looks like that thing Ebenezer's been afraid of since he was four."
[11/1/2013 8:46:58 PM] Kate: Might be, sir.
[11/1/2013 8:47:02 PM] Kate: Kate follows Eben!
[11/1/2013 8:49:02 PM] Felix: You hear a door slam down the hall!
[11/1/2013 8:51:22 PM] Kate: Kate hurries after him, and tries to work out which room he's in.
[11/1/2013 8:51:24 PM] Kate: Ebenezer?

[11/5/2013 10:18:07 PM] Kate: Ebenezer!
[11/5/2013 10:18:48 PM] Felix: Indeed.  She needs to be careful, as her leg is numb.  You hear a scream behind you!  "It's... getting back up!"
[11/5/2013 10:19:37 PM] Kate: Kate runs back, still holding the sword, staggering a bit!
[11/5/2013 10:19:54 PM] Felix: It's a brooch again.
[11/5/2013 10:20:43 PM] Kate: Kate carries that, then! And returns to the scorpiwolf!
[11/5/2013 10:22:31 PM] Felix: It is getting back up.  Its head, that you split in half, seems to be sewing itself back together, and it's slowly standing up again!
[11/5/2013 10:23:06 PM] Kate: Kate tries to get the brooch to be a shotgun again!
[11/5/2013 10:24:29 PM] Felix: Roll.
[11/5/2013 10:26:06 PM] Kate: ((2!))
[11/5/2013 10:27:41 PM] Felix: It doesn't become a shotgun!  It becomes a sword.  But not a Kate sized sword, it seems a little small to you.
[11/5/2013 10:28:14 PM] Kate: ... Eben!!
[11/5/2013 10:28:57 PM] Felix: He is apparently still in his room!
[11/5/2013 10:29:28 PM] Kate: .... Jenny?
[11/5/2013 10:31:47 PM] Felix: She's cowering behidn her parents, who are all cowering, and working their way toward the door.  The black wolf is getting up.  Doesn't seem interested in anyone, though, and is inching its way toward the door to the hallway.
[11/5/2013 10:32:17 PM] Kate: ... hell with it!
[11/5/2013 10:33:01 PM] Kate: Kate attacks the wolf anyway, knowing she will not be able to run after Eben now that her leg is increasingly numb.
[11/5/2013 10:35:16 PM] Kate: Run! Go barricade yourselves somewhere else!
[11/5/2013 10:35:50 PM] Felix: Roll!
[11/5/2013 10:36:26 PM] Kate: ((3. >.<))
[11/5/2013 10:38:11 PM] Felix: The sword does not work very well!  The black wolf gets up and begins making its way down the hall.
[11/5/2013 10:38:39 PM] Kate: Kate limps after it!
[11/5/2013 10:38:46 PM] Kate: Eben, come out!
[11/5/2013 10:40:28 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ... it it gone?
[11/5/2013 10:41:21 PM] Kate: No, you got to fight it! The sword's your size!
[11/5/2013 10:41:51 PM] Kate: Kate does realize that if she lets it go she will not get it back and will from now on be helpless.
[11/5/2013 10:42:26 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ...sword?
[11/5/2013 10:42:39 PM] Felix: he peeks his head out of his room, eyes wide as the wolf limps toward him.
[11/5/2013 10:45:50 PM] Kate: Kate follows it and tosses Eben the sword!
[11/5/2013 10:46:40 PM] Felix: It slides down the hall and lands at his feet!  He picks it up, looking at it, and looking at the monster.  Roll a d10!
[11/5/2013 10:47:12 PM] Kate: ((8!))
[11/5/2013 10:49:42 PM] Felix: You notice immediately that after you toss Ebenezer the sword, the brooch is back in your hand.  And he still has a sword.  He gets into a fencing stance at charges at the black wolf!
[11/5/2013 10:49:47 PM] Felix: He stabs it.
[11/5/2013 10:50:07 PM] Felix: It gives a very unwolfy cry and begins to melt!
[11/5/2013 10:50:18 PM] Kate: You can do it, Eben! Take it down!
[11/5/2013 10:51:18 PM] Kate: Kate drops to one knee, wobbling a bit from the poison!
[11/5/2013 10:52:40 PM] Felix: He stabs it a few more times!
[11/5/2013 10:53:09 PM] Kate: Good work!
[11/5/2013 10:54:27 PM] Felix: He's pretty much a puddle of goo at this point.  "...who are you?"
[11/5/2013 10:59:00 PM] Kate: Kate. I'm Kate.
[11/5/2013 10:59:22 PM] Kate: And I can't feel my leg anymore.
[11/5/2013 11:00:44 PM] Kate: ((Back on the comp.))
[11/5/2013 11:02:17 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  Why did you have a sword?
[11/5/2013 11:02:29 PM] Kate: Didn't, per se.
[11/5/2013 11:02:42 PM] Kate: Kate sits down, and then lies down on the floor!
[11/5/2013 11:03:14 PM] Felix: Feeling is starting to come back.
[11/5/2013 11:03:38 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ... that really doesn't answer my question.  Father says Americans are all unsubtle and straightforward.
[11/5/2013 11:03:58 PM] Kate: Not all of 'em.
[11/5/2013 11:07:07 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ... So why did you have a sword?
[11/5/2013 11:07:41 PM] Kate: Magic.
[11/5/2013 11:08:00 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ....ohh.
[11/5/2013 11:10:12 PM] Kate: You all right? How long you been scared of that thing?
[11/5/2013 11:14:46 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  ... since I was little.  I read an old book, and it was in one of the corners.
[11/5/2013 11:15:17 PM] Kate: Well. It's dead now.
[11/5/2013 11:17:17 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  I didn't even know it was real.
[11/5/2013 11:17:27 PM] Felix: Ebenezer:  Um.  You're turning transparent.
[11/5/2013 11:20:00 PM] Felix: And indeed, you are!
[11/5/2013 11:21:09 PM] Kate: ... oh.
[11/5/2013 11:21:15 PM] Kate: Well, I don't know how long I'm going to be here.
[11/5/2013 11:21:44 PM] Felix: He smiles and hugs you!  "Thank you for the sword."
[11/5/2013 11:22:49 PM] Kate: Kate hugs him back.
[11/5/2013 11:22:51 PM] Kate: You're a sweet kid, kid.
[11/5/2013 11:27:24 PM] Felix: Everything goes black!  Then pretty bright.  And kinda muggy.
[11/5/2013 11:29:25 PM] Felix: ((Has Kate ever been to New Orleans?))
[11/5/2013 11:30:40 PM] Kate: ((Nope!))
[11/5/2013 11:30:48 PM] Kate: Kate blinks.
[11/5/2013 11:33:09 PM] Felix: You're standing in a small outdoor cafe!  A server is holding a try and looking at you expectantly!  You're still wearing the same dress.
