13pitchblackcats: I don't mind being in this rut. (Whut)

[It's a fine day in Burby. The sun is shining, the birds are singing...

Misery does not approve. The raincloud that has taken to following her around is the only thing that makes venturing out for fresh tea-makings a possibility. Seriously, why is the sun out so often? Is it out to kill her? Malignant melanoma is a very real concern here.

After a few minutes outside, she's more than ready to give up on her shopping venture. In a last-ditch attempt to collect the final ingredient she needs to brew up some of her great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother's cure-all tea, Misery addresses the whole of Burby.]


[Well. The whole of Burby that's within easy shouting distance, anyway. In a much quieter monotone, she adds:]

Dried toad legs are good, too. I guess I can powder them myself.

"I sell some?" He appears next to her. It wasn't hard to find her after such a shout.
element_wizard: (I'm looking at you sideways)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-25 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes. So it is.

"I can yes. Why do you need some?"
element_wizard: (oh now there's an idea)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-25 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"That sounds like it's got a great pedigree, though you might want to be careful. Something's been stealing tea related items."
element_wizard: (b&w thinky)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-26 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
"Dunno, to be honest. Haven't looked into it. I'm a coffee person myself."

Hence the coffee urn theft rankles him.
element_wizard: (sorta there interested)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-26 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
"People drinking coffee is a moral disease?" He's confused. "I think I have a bit of both. I'd have to double check however."
element_wizard: (red scarf)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-26 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes, but that doesn't always mean anything. I'm a bit on the scatterbrained side having a bit too much happening in my head all at once."

He nods.

"Sure. I can do that. It looks like a nice place."
element_wizard: (b&w thinky)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-26 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
"You're welcome. If you ever need anything come and find me. I'll be happy to help."

He so wants to adopt her.

[ A window opens. A head pops out. ]

Have you tried looking on a powdered toad?

[ How sardonic. ]

I'm almost afraid to ask what it's for.
nopolicelikeholmes: (diet pepsi and mentos!)

[personal profile] nopolicelikeholmes 2013-01-26 04:39 am (UTC)(link)

I think you can actually substitute red clover.

[ Nods, gives a thumbs-up. :Db ]
nopolicelikeholmes: that's the periodic table in the background (I have this bitch memorized)

It's better than going without, isn't it?

[The sun doesn't bother Ruby quite so much, although it is...eerie. But she has a parasol and a sense of adventure, and so she's out and about, exploring her new hometown.

She hears Misery before seeing her.]

Hey Misery! You're out shopping?
genkigoth: (pic#5327926)

[personal profile] genkigoth 2013-01-31 07:00 pm (UTC)(link)
It looks like I had perfect time. We should pick up some groceries. I was thinking of making cookies
genkigoth: (pic#5327967)

[personal profile] genkigoth 2013-02-02 05:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[nervous laughter] Ahhhh, that's okay, Misery. I think I can handle it myself.

[She loves Misery, but her cookies...well, you have to be in a certain kind of mood.]

[personal profile] genkigoth 2013-02-06 02:51 am (UTC)(link)
Let's see...eggs, butter, flour, and sugar. Maybe some cinnamon and vanilla.

[personal profile] genkigoth 2013-02-12 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
I don't see why not! It's certainly worth a look.

[ Well. That was a hard shout to ignore. So Jane won't ignore it. She was feeling a little bad about scaring Misery before, anyway. ]

... [ But seriously, toad legs? ] Are you doing a spell?

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-01-29 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
Don't most people use. Leaves?

[ If Iroh has been making her toad leg tea, she doesn't want to know. ]

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-01-31 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
I guess that you might be out of luck.

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-02 05:36 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oh dear. ] Maybe you could find a substitute?

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-06 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
They probably aren't too happy about it either?

[ She's so bad at making jokes. ]

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-08 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
Anyway, this place is we-- [ Really, really weird. ] wildly resourceful. I wouldn't be surprised if someone knew where to find some. Or at least... toads.

[personal profile] watsonyourmind 2013-02-09 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
You're welcome. [ She shrugs. ] People who come here have to stick together.
