Groovy Tunes, Thursday

It was Octavia's first shift.

Ever, on any job.

Just another thing to adapt to, she guessed. Jono had left her a note with instructions about running the store, and she was quietly grateful for it. Right now, she was learning to work the till – while shaking her head at the whole idea of it. Exchanging pieces of paper and bits of metal for plastic discs to take them home.

This was going to take adjusting to.

She was still wearing her tough leathers. She was yet to start feeling comfortable in anything else, at least anywhere in public. Maybe that's why the stereo was behaving itself, and actually playing the Elliot Smith compilation she'd wanted it to play.

Groovy Tunes was open and there was a Grounder behind the counter.

[ooc: Open, no OCD!]

Magnus was on the hunt for some music. Be it some sweet violin on an elevator or Jock Jams on an old timey western piano.

Because that was his canon, folks.

"Hail and well met, shopkeeper!"

Who, in his mind, was an NPC voiced by the DM.
magnusrushesin: (talking at you)

Nope, she was Griffin doing a higher pitched voice.

"I was wondering what sort of music you have in this fine establishment."
magnusrushesin: (omg is that a dog)

If it helped, female NPCs were the only competent ones.

Also he was automatically translating it to fantasy cd's.

"Oh, cool! Thank you."

What, no plot hook? FOR SHAME, GRIFFIN.

"Where can I find the one playing? It sounds like this guy I know." Knew. Thanks, The Hunger.

Well, she was no Tom Bodett...

Magnus hummed in agreement twice like he was totally following her here. "And how do I play these?"
magnusrushesin: (talking at you)

[personal profile] magnusrushesin 2017-07-14 02:37 pm (UTC)(link)
"Sure," he said, also adding 'fantasy' in front of that in his head. "Is it mechanical or magical?"

He was being totally serious about that question too.
magnusrushesin: (uhh... no?)

[personal profile] magnusrushesin 2017-07-14 03:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"You know... magic." He twirled his finger in the air like that helped. "I can't, like, do any. But I know people who can. Usually with some competence."

This was going to be another 'Skeletons can move in this game, Justin!' situation.

"Works for me. No spells here." He held up a hand for a high-five.
magnusrushesin: (sigh my tragic past)

[personal profile] magnusrushesin 2017-07-14 06:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Which is why Magnus gave her the saddest of looks before manfully clearing his throat. "Okay, cool. Not much of a talker. Or high-fiver."
magnusrushesin: (sigh my tragic past)

[personal profile] magnusrushesin 2017-07-14 09:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Sure, I guess." He was just deeply saddened. See if he showed you Stephen now.

Dante'd promised to help Kathy pick out a guitar, but it'd been a while since he'd really taken stock of... well, the stock.

He'd been planning to pop into the store just to look - he hadn't expected it to be open. "... Huh," he said, poking his head in. "New kid?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante - with vergil)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
Dante snickered softly. "Fine," he said, "You're right, you don't look like much of a kid."

And he'd have actually hit on her a few months back, but not so much these days. "Starsmore hired you?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - down)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'm Dante. I work Fridays," Dante said, shrugging casually with one shoulder. "Been here two years."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: squinty)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"You from anywhere like here or not?" Dante asked, lifting his chin at her leather outfit.
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - black and white)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
"So... not quite like here," Dante said, raising his eyebrows. "Got it."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: thinky)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'm from a place a little more like this, but we've got a ton of demons running around," Dante offered.

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-14 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
"It was definitely different," Dante said.

Maybe not different the way it was other people's different. "Kinda fucked up."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: white not a tie guy)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-15 09:04 am (UTC)(link)
Dante shrugged. "I'm sure you've heard the whole rundown," he said. "People turning into animals, crazy monsters showing up every once in a while..."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: thinky)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-15 09:11 am (UTC)(link)
"They're not here every day," Dante said, tilting his head. "But sometimes? Yeah."

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-15 02:17 pm (UTC)(link)
"Gremlins, mutant alligators, giant bunnies, we've seen some weird shit," Dante said. "Evil space aliens too."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: thinky)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-16 08:02 am (UTC)(link)
"Things from outer space that show up and start stabbing people?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - black and white)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-16 09:01 am (UTC)(link)
"Burning, stabbing, all in the same family of shit, right?" Dante said, shrugging. "They looked like weird-ass insects, if that helps."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - thinking about it)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-16 12:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"Few points in your favor," Dante agreed merrily. "What, you're an alien?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - thataway)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-16 01:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"But human?" Dante guessed. "Hey, there's a new one I can check off my bingo card."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: thinky)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-16 02:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Dante blinked. Right, different world, differences happened, yadda yadda. "Uh, bingo's a game where everyone gets a card with a bunch of numbers on it, and whenever the leader calls a number, whoever has it on their card can strike it off," he said. "You get a whole row or a whole card struck off, you yell 'bingo'. It's pretty lame."
