  1. The Room Where It Happens (OOC)

    Nightingale: Initiative: 1d20+9 28
  2. The Room Where It Happens (IC)

    The typical response to most things in Bedlam was to ignore it, and it wasn't possible to ignore it then you run away from it. Failing that you hunker down in once place and hope it all passes you by. Nicola did none of these things, and she was up from the couch and moving toward the sound of the explosion on reflex. She was by Anna's side in a faction of a second, far faster than a human had any right to be and she clenched her fist around the bag of ice still in her hand.

    Nicola's eyes narrowed behind her sunglasses. "Such questions would go nowhere nice," she said quietly, but softened the warning with a smile. It seemed that Anna already knew this, but Nicola wasn't one to leave things to chance or ambiguity. At least where aspects of her past were concerned; her present she was more than happy to keep plenty vague. Of course she could have been talking about anyone asking her questions about Anna. She leaned back into the couch, tilting her head to regard Anna with a look that was only vaguely predatory considering her obscuring eye wear. "I would not begrudge anyone leaving Bedlam," she said after a moment. "I am only here because it was requested of me. Where I permitted to leave I would." Her attention shifted to the door where Hope went. "You should keep your food," she said. "Not that I do not appreciate the offer, but I have certain dietary requirements and at the moment I am quite sated."

    Nicola shook her head, both to Hope's question and to give herself time to think. "I don't get high," she murmured. "Probably something I ate, throwing me off. I'll be fine." She very carefully did not look at Anna when she spoke, but accepted the icepack graciously. Probably figured it was better to not draw too much attention to the accidental innuendo. "Thank you," she said after a moment, giving Anna and Hope a close lipped smile. She realized she should start to get a move on, at the very least to check back in on an abandoned steel mill she was thinking of purchasing with the stipend her King gave her. But she decided to stay, at least for the moment. She had time.
  5. The Room Where It Happens (IC)

    Nicola looked thoughtful for a moment then shrugged. She finished pulling on her trousers, fished her bra off the lamp and worked on getting dressed. She was in no hurry now, the foster kid already saw nearly as much as Anna did and they were on the other side of the door now, so she took her time. She paused to listen, it wasn't that hard the walls were thin enough. And what she heard made her frown. She wore her own criminal past on her skin--the stars, the spider, the cat and the cross--and while she wasn't particularly ashamed it was a path she wouldn't recommend. It was unkind. The tall brunette opened the door quietly and moved to slip past Anna and Espy. Except she opened the door too fast, realized what was happening and then reached out to stop it and ended up overcompensating. She missed, and crashed into the door frame, knocking her hat off and dislodging her sunglasses. "OK," Nicola murmured, pushing her shades back up the bridge of her nose.
  6. The Room Where It Happens (IC)

    Nicola sat up, the bedsheets pooling around her waist, and stretched languidly. She was feeling quite sated, on multiple levels, and with a slight shrug of her pale shoulder she slipped out from under the covers and started gathering her own things. The vampire didn't really expect to end up in someones bed when she went to that bar. I just wanted a quick snack, she thought. But I guess Bedlam is making me lonely. She was squeezing herself back into her trousers when she paused. "Wait," she said. "Your sorta foster kid?" I shouldn't be prying, why am I prying?

  9. Fragile

    Phaedra let herself get pushed out of Winifred's room--she was strong, she could have resisted if she wanted to--and smiled after her girlfriend's lips left her own. She was still smiling when she watched Cathy head back in to check on the Victorian, when inspiration struck. Phaedra glanced down the hall to where the others where waiting then vanished in a flicker of crimson light. The redhead was gone for a few minutes when a portal yawned open in Fred's room and she reappeared with a pint of mint chip ice cream and a spoon. This she handed off to Winifred with a grin, reached out and gave her shoulder a squeeze and pirouetted around to hook her arm through Cathy's and escorted her from the room.

    "That's not blood," Nightingale said, peering into the room over the shoulder of a person whose name she didn't catch. She didn't realize she said that out loud for a moment--too busy reminding herself to not go licking the blood, at least not with witnesses--but the she gave a small grin. "I would be an awful haemotheurge if I couldn't spot the difference." Good save, she thought to herself. Avoid the vampire stuff. Blood magic is already creepy enough. "So.. who wants to play occult google translator?"
  11. Fragile

    Phaedra slipped past Riley and Robin after they left to give Winifred some space. Until now she had been Cathy's silent shadow, quietly sharing the burden of her girlfriend's concern for her friend. Now she stood in the door frame, looking across to someone that she regarded as an ally and friend and frowned slightly. "You had Cathy worried," the half-breed said without preamble. "I was not," she admitted, giving Fred a small shrug that could have been an apology. "Believe what you may, but I understand more of your condition than the others do. I admire your control of it."

    Is it actually blood? Nicola has a nose for these things...
  13. And All the Devils Here [IC]

    The Church was more aware of the occult than most would realize at first, but when one stopped to consider matters, its interest made considerably more sense. Which explained why one Nicola Cervenka, known in some select circles at the Nightingale (and in some even more exclusive circles as Sister Nightingale) had heard about the Celestial Spirit Fellowship and that it had reached out. Because despite being a vampire, the former religious sister still had a relationship with The Church. Not one that the Church would ever admit to of course, even normal people didn't want to admit that vampires were real, but the Church certainly didn't want to admit it had one on its payroll. So to speak. -- A woman with pale skin and dark hair approached the group, eyes obscured by sunglasses though it was rapidly approaching dusk. Her clothing was dark, her coat was leather and long, the wind toying with it dramatically. On top of her head was a dark hat, the classic detective fedora and around her neck hung a rosary. Her movements where, in a word, predatory and seemed at odds with her close-lipped smile. "Good evening," she said, her English still carried her Czech accent. "I am the Nightingale." That sounds so stupid thought Nicola, but her King--and since when did she start thinking of Avenger as her king?--insisted upon her adopting a moniker. She glanced at those still outside and gestured toward the door. "Might we enter?"
