Zissou hurries through the portal, anything he would need to say can wait until the other side.

Once Zissou is through, Zarik gives a signing off wave and hops through the portal himself. Moments later, it collapses on itself and the room is left silent.

"So..." Cai says hesitantly, unsure of how to strike up conversation with the busy cat, "What're you working on?"

Kawa silently gives Cai a gesture not entirely unlike "come see" and continues typing. The first thing one'd notice is that the system has only a keyboard for input. The second is that between the unreadable alien script and helpful syntax highlighting, Kawa seems to be writing something Lisp-like. Every so often, they strike a function key and switch to a different window (none of them overlapping, but rather arranged on a grid) to test things, revealing the project to be a classic text adventure.

Having little to no knowledge of how computers work, Cai looks at the screen with slight bewilderment. She smiles kindly despite her confusion and says, "That seems... Neat. I think?"

"Ah, of course. You can't read any of this, can you?" Kawa laughs. "I'm working on a text adventure game. Mostly the world data and such, on the engine from its predecessor."

Kawa indicates the two windows. "Here's the world data, with the room I'm working on, and here's the thing in action, updated live."

Cai follow to the best of her ability, but the only thing she can really try to wrap her head around is the concept of the world data, "To be totally honest, Kawa, I think Zarik would have a better time actually understanding any of this." she says with an apologetic tone, "This is gibbering technobabble to me."

"Not a problem," Kawa says with a smile, then produces a new bottle of fizzy chocolate milk from under the table and offers it to Cai. "Shintanik?"

"No, but thank you." She says, going to get herself a cup of tea.

"Isn't chocolate toxic to cats?" She inquires as she sits on her stool behind the bar.

Kawa chuckles as they pop the cap off. "This is as much chocolate as a felin is a cat."

Superficial resemblance means little.

"Oh okay." Cai says with a bit of a yawn, "I guess that makes sense." She then sets her elbow on the bar and rests her head lazily on her knuckles.

Having drifted off to sleep for quite some time, Caionna's eyes pop open.

"Something's not right." She says with no signs of sleep-related drowsiness, "Zarik and the others are in trouble." With a sigh, she adds, "I hope this works..."

With a snap of her fingers, a portal appears in the center of the room. Moments later; Belgarion, Moxley, Zarik, and Zissou are expelled from it at an alarming velocity.

Upon hitting the floor, Zarik and Zissou glow for a time and revert to their normal forms.

Alarming velocities call for alarmed reactions -- Kawa dives for cover behind the bar, cursing in their native language.

Zarik is the first to pick himself up off the floor, sort of. He pushes himself up and onto his knees, steadying himself with one hand and holding his head with the other. "Where am I?" he ponders dazedly, unable to process what happened mere moments ago. "Last I knew, I was running from a sea of demons, then I'm suddenly flying through the aether to fuck knows where!"

Zissou is the next to awaken, sprawled out on the floor, facing the ceiling. Rubbing his eyes for a moment, he stares straight ahead. After a long pause, he says, "I believe I recognise those rafters." Then he appears to pass out.

Caionna gives a flat expression and hides her face behind her book, muttering to herself, "Note to self: Need to make a few adjustments to that spell..."

Bel seemingly hit the floor on his back with a sound thud but the collision causes a whiplash-effect, but backwards, making the back of his head hit the wooden floor harder than'd be considered healthy.

Bel: Urgh!

The wizard, teary-eyed from the collision with the floor aswell as a bit dizzy, slowly sits up uisng his hands to push himself up. He checks the back on his head with his right hand and mutters some nigh-unhearable profanity as, sure enough, the mere touch stings a bit. He looks around and notices a bar on the right and Caionna behind a book in another direction.

Bel: What are we doing back here again?

OoC: I'm assuming my post, or rather, the events that occur in it take place before Caionna's reaction to the small mishap, yes?

Posted by out of character
Cai's behind the bar, but we'll roll with your post as written


Zarik holds his head momentarily and responds, "I'm guessing we were sent a rescue line of sorts. Things looked like they were going tits up over there." with a growl, he adds, "Which kinda pisses me off because what about all of those adventurers who were deeper in that we couldn't save? Or Aren! The whole reason we were there!" Throwing his arms up, he continues, "Fuckin' eh! What if he--"

The astute, or those watching her, would notice Caionna flick her wrist and bring her hand to rest in a fist. The gesture was a somatic cast of a silencing spell to allow her to get a word in.

"First of all, shut up. He wasn't there." She says in an uncharacteristic snappiness, "I was watching you guys through my book." She turns the book's pages outward to show that it's a seemingly empty tome of enchanted paper for scrying.

She continues, "As far as the people you thought were there, there weren't that many deeper in. While it's not good that some of the realm's finest were lost, it was a foregone conclusion. Whatever was down there was too strong, even for you four."

Clearing his throat after regaining his voice, Zarik retorts, "It wouldn't have hurt to at least try to save them!"

"Yes it would have," the comparatively diminutive woman responds, "because not only would have Eorzea lost two of its very best, but this fledgling plane would have lost one of its cornerstone demigods. And you know this!"

Zarik growls gruffly and throws up his arms, "Fuck it, whatever!" not wanting to admit his sister was right, "I still need to unfuck what these idiots did to my workshop! I'll be out there working. If you need me, kindly fuck yourselves!"

Zissou comes to just as Zarik storms out and quips, "That's lovely."

Bel perks an eyebrow at Caionna's unusual aggressive behaviour, not once, but twice with the first being the silencing spell and the second time being the "shut up".

Bel: If what was lurking in that library was too strong, even for us, that's saying something. I have to admit they were more resilient than I thought they'd be. On anhother note, you didn't happen to see a magic staff through that book of yours?

Bel walks over to the sofa and sits down rather violently, with his arms stretched out across the backrest.

Judging Bel's behavior, Kawa skips over to the sofa and produces a piece of cake on a little plate.

"You look like you could use this."

Not waiting for a response, they put the little plate down within Bel's reach and skip back towards Cai, leaving a similar piece of cake for her.

"I'm gonna go for a run while you guys discuss things. If anyone needs me just say my name, buh-bye!"
