♕ |[98]| show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive

This is always my favorite curse to wake up to. These aren't as regular as the other weekends, but I guess it's about time you all came calling. I hadn't realized it'd been so long since the last.

If we haven't met yet, I'm Neil. Welcome to the City. It's kind of a strange place, but don't worry, most of you are probably only going to be visiting for a few days.

If we have met, I'm glad you've dropped by! I'll be at the bookstore most of the day, if you'd like to visit.


[ooc; please no duplicate neils (tho facedoubles are welcome), and no outright telling him he doesn't exist. Otherwise, anything goes! <3 BACKDATING WELCOME FOREVER, I will be out much of today so expect some delays, darlings.]

Is a favorite curse anything like a favorite disease?

Well...

[He has to take a minute to think about all of that.]

They should have picked a better name for it. That's not very interesting at all.

[Yes, that's what he chooses to focus on.]

[Somebody swings by the bookstore, pushing the door open and walking straight to the counter where she drops a greasy paper sack on the counter. Smells like... meat.]

Don't work yourself to death.

[Indeed, but he has a heartbeat now, right? So the words aren't all that meaningful anymore.]

I couldn't remember whose turn it was, so I figured that if you're working, I'll just say it's mine.

Welcome back would be a bit more like it, don't you think?

[Why, look who's walking through the door of the bookstore in her pink sweater and gray skirt, hair tied back with a darker pink ponytail scarf.]

I'm assuming you know where Todd is, since you always do. The bad news is, I've lost track of Nuwanda.
worldhopper: (FIDGET ❀ where is that damn text)

[personal profile] worldhopper 2013-02-17 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
...You mean earlier today? I didn't; we were going to have lunch, but then I blinked and--well, here I am. And here you are, too, but I haven't found any of the others yet.

[She remarks, vaguely puzzled.]

[ A young woman enters the bookshop, pausing on the threshold. She's perhaps in her mid-twenties, with blonde hair and a bit of a limp. She lifts her head to sniff the air, and then grins, a bit sheepishly, as if aware how strange that sort of thing was. ]

I may have been kidnapped to a weird City who knows where, but at least the bookshop smells the same as the one at home.

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-17 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
Thank God for that. [ She smiles at him. ] You must have been here a while, yourself, though. I heard your post on the internet. You're an old hat at this.

[ So clearly she had to come be nosy. ]
