They... Do. What the Hell?

Well, I was not able to see her posts a moment ago. Now I do. How odd.

He smiled, wryly, attempting to lighten her mood with a little joke.

"Maybe it was something you did in a past life. You seem harmless enough." He grinned at her, jokingly.

"I don't think you need ta worry about something like that... You'd still stand out in a crowd, I'd bet. You seem to be too unique not to."

{{That IS odd. Wonder what's up with that.

Code Gremlins, I guess. They get even the best programmers.}}

Flutter blushed, and finished off her beer.

"Thank you. Probably one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me, or to me for that matter. Kinda gives you a heads up on the kind of folk I have been hanging around."

She turned around in her chair, leaning her elbows against the counter. She glanced at him sideways.

"You got a sense of adventure in you? If so, I have an idea."

"Yeah, it does. Maybe you need to get some better friends?" His tone was still light as he said this, of course. He didn't really know what kind of friends she might have, so he was mostly joking.

Her next words caused him to raise an eyebrow, and he cocked his head curiously.

"I'm pretty adventurous, at times... What did you have in mind?" Her question could lead to some amusement, but then again it could be pretty ominous too.

The Egotist
"Better friends, yes. That would be good."

Living in the back of a van, and traveling around from place to place where she had heard rumors that her dad had made an appearance... didn't really invite people in to be friends with her. Add that to her up until recently erratic temper, she wanted to keep the after math of one of her rage fueled adrenalin rushes to a minimum.

"I had a shape changing in mind, actually. Namely yours." she admitted. She felt that it was probably best to come clean with him about what it was that she wanted. Worse case scenario in that situation is that he told her no. Worst case scenario if she did it anyway, and he got pissed off about it, well there would be bits and pieces of her all over the place.

((Grayfox was on my ignored list, so he wouldn't have been able to see any of my posts until I took him off of it, which I did.))

"Shapechanging? Are you a mage or something?" He only knew a few people who could accomplish feats such as that. He had a little magic of his own, but it was inborn, natural magic, rather than spells and rituals.

"That sounds dangerous... What exactly were you thinking? Nothing permanent, I hope."

The Egotist
"I was thinking of giving you this potion."

She dug out an innocent looking vial from her pocket to show him the potion that she was talking about.

"I've been experimenting with shape shifting potions over the past couple of months. An insecurity of mine over being just human, and a physically limited one at that, unless I lose my temper."

She paused, holding a hand up to halt that train of thought before continuing with the one she was on initially.

"I was thinking of giving this to you to drink. And watching you change. It's a werewolf potion. I've taken one like it before, the effects lasted one night. I'm pretty sure I woke up the next day, but it might have been more than one day."

She grinned, and shrugged. The passage of time when there was nowhere to be, and no one to be with was vague in her mind. It had been a morning that she had woken up. Which one, she was still fuzzy about that.

He was a little surprised when she claimed to be just a human. Judging by her odd eyes, he wouldn't have guessed that.

"A werewolf potion? I'm not even sure how that works... I mean, don't werewolves look just like anyone else, most of the time?" He wasn't the most educated bout magic and alchemy; His group had specialists for that kinda thing.

"I don't know... That doesn't sound all that safe, to me. I'm still on a mission, right now... If I quaff that thing, wolf out, and go running off into the woods... It could be a problem."

The Egotist
The eyes were the windows into the soul.

Flutter's was a tortured one. Fractured even, pulled in several directions at once with equal force, leaving the center of her being torn apart at the best of times.

"Yeah, they look like anybody else most of the time. They pass for human, with a sensory boost now and them. Scents are everything to them. I never met one that was part of a pack though, only one that had been on his own for a pretty long time."

He wasn't going to do it. She looked upset about, it, but had not entirely given up on the idea.

"Ah come on!! You aren't doing anything right now, and by the time it wears off, it will be morning."

She covered her mouth with her hand, coughed to cover up the sound of the word 'probably'.

"I have a Dhampire friend, but I've never met any werewolves... Or at least, not any who made it obvious what they were." Honestly, Brauner would probably get along just fine with werewolves; The hulking Dhampire hated full blooded Vamps, and werewolves and vampires were often enemies...

He noticed her little "cough" at the end, and he frowned slightly.

"I don't know... This sounds dangerous, and I don't think you even know how long the thing lasts." Technically, he wasn't even supposed to drink any potions without approval from the science team... But he was a commander, and rules like that didn't apply as strictly.

Still, he was pretty apprehensive about the idea. He didn't have any wish to be anything other than what he was. He'd heard stories of werewolves losing control and killing people, and he definitely didn't want something like that on his conscience.

The Egotist
Flutter wanted to be anything other than who, and what she was. She was trying different ways to change her appearance, daily. She had been playfully teased about it once, by the werewolf that she had befriended. When she asked him to turn her, he had looked at her with sympathy and pain.

He didn't even want to be what he was.

"I might give up on the whole idea if you set me up with your Dhampire friend." she offered as a compromise, ever considering the possibilities.

"You want to meet Brauner?" The shock in his tone was obvious. Brauner was the kinda guy who might be described as a "Gentle Giant"... Except that the huge, German vampire-hunter was rarely gentle. He was a bloodthirsty, Vampire-hunting warrior.

"I'd introduce you, but the guy isn't even on this plane." He seemed genuinely apologetic, and he was.

"I'm the only member of the company on this plane, at the moment."

The Egotist
"An associate of mine has a place that sits on a nexus, manned by a Plainswalker. I can find my way to him, but I doubt he'd even entertainment if I didn't have an introduction of some kind to make it legitimate."

Eric had been bloodthirsty, most of it had been what he'd spilled. Though when he blacked out, after putting off a change for too long, he rarely remembered what he'd done.

"He sounds like someone that I had been looking for over the past year."

"I actually have a friend here working on improving the Company's method of planar travel... Of course, knowing James, I could be here for weeks." He clearly didn't have a lot of faith in the white-haired mage; More specifically, he knew that the guy could get the job done, but he also knew that he would only do it when he felt like it.

"Really? Doesn't sound like a very pleasant guy."
