So, the host provider did an emergency update and reboot on all their servers (Thanks Spectre/Meltdown). That took the server down earlier for a bit and ever since it's been back up, it's been a little laggy (which is also causing the counter to suck). Everything seems to be set up to run properly on my end. Hopefully, the provider will sort itself out over the course of the next day or so.This fabulous decor and high class atmoshpere of this hotel makes it the prime place for visitors from outside the city to stay and an excellent meeting place for those who wish to discuss business away for their normal meeting spots. This elaborate room has a bed, a computer and a small meeting area off to the side.

Your ST for today: Kremlith grins "Delightful. I had given up all hope they had any political acumen at all. And no, not the County.Far too prominent. A barony, a way to perhaps earn a barony."
Chloe DuBois: "...and, yes, a bit of an idiot." A slight wry grin. "He doesn't know how to tell you...and you don't know how to ask."
Your ST for today: But at Chloe's flat out denial, he nods, "Of course, it's..unworthy of me. Right of rescue and all that. Fine. " he pulls out a slip of paper, "Here is where you'll find all the childlings . If you feel indebted, good Seelie that you are, no doubt you'll repay me." He lays it on the table. "No letter needed. I will trust your...honor. " A look to Claire, "I'd stay and talk to you about Magnus, but I think your lady friends are determined to keep me at least five feet away at all times. Hurtful, this distrust. But so be it."
Julia Morton: "I know my debts, sirrah."
Your ST for today: Claire is about to say something but then, she hears Julia and Chloe's comments, and the last she sighs "I don't know how to ask. Damn it. That's really it, isn't it? I need him to...and I'm going to need him just as much whether I make this bargain or not." A look to Kremlith "I suppose I will be in your debt since I'm Seelie too, but it willbe a coin of MY choosing." //"It always is," He says "It's one thing I admire about you. Enjoy the room."
Chloe DuBois: Coradel turns and looks at him, measuringly...then nods. "Noted." And she picks up the paper from the table.
Your ST for today: And Kremlith withdraws
Chloe DuBois: She inspects the information on the paper as the other Ailil goes out the door.
Your ST for today: Now that he's gone, she says "In his own weird way, he's a good friend." And she slumps down on a very nice couch, "I am going out of my mind for Magnus, and if this does not have a happily ever after on it I will KICK HIS LION TAILED ASS!" Then she cries
Julia Morton: "I'll help. He is my brother, after all."
Chloe DuBois: "Oh, Claire..." She goes to sit next to her on the couch. "I know what you mean. For the record, Liam can be JUST as infuriating! No offense, Deryn."
Your ST for today: And that makes the tears turn into a bit of a laugh, still tears, but not as bad, "Thanks, Julia"
Your ST for today: "And I'm sure they can I..." A look to Chloe, "Oh crap. I was so mean to August. I told him when he tried to follow me that his house would prevent him of being useful to me. And not because they were oathbroken. What i meant is, he's..well too decent ot make deals like this. He's not...ruthless enough. Damn it. Now he and I are probably back to square one"
Julia Morton: She settles on the other side of Claire and rubs the Ailil's shoulder. "But first, we rescue children."
Chloe DuBois: "Ahhh...that explains it."
Your ST for today: "Yeah " She rises, "But if I know Kremlith, and I do, he's also texting some Ailil knights to go find them. By the time we get there, we'll be 'sharing the glory' with House Ailil. Never take a loss when you can have even a lesser victory" As if quoting a maxim "Ready to go?" She pauses, and grabs a bottle of the hotel's finest wine. "For celebration later."
Chloe DuBois: "Let's go." She agrees...and what the heck, grabs another bottle for good measure.
Julia Morton: "Well, I don't much care about glory - focus on the act. Let's go."
Your ST for today: It does appear Kremlith will be paying for all the booze.
Your ST for today: And the three ladies rush off, to the address on the list to be heroines. Whether that gets full credit or not. (END SCENE)
