*slides the bookcase aside and steps out. curls of violet steam, smelling of cloves and something weirdly exotic, trail out behind his back*

Did someone mention a wager?

*Staggers back to the balcony, ducking the large amount of poison spat towards him by the Honey Badger.*

Bartender, my wallet, and protective goggles please.

Alright then, charred bread and melted cheddar on it's way...

*fires up the bin with a tattered copy of "Lady Chattelly's Rover", then adds in "A diary of Anony-mouse" for extra heat*

Ahh lovely, here, take the rest of this loaf, I have had plenty, and it loses some of its attraction once cooled.
*looks at the scorched walls, patron feeding books into the blazing bin, sliding bookcase and sizzling poison mark on the floor.* Definitely an interesting place I have stumbled into here.

*shakes head, smiles* Sorry, the brandy for you sirs. Medicated you say? *adds a generous drop of laudanum to the bottle, sticks his finger in the neck and gives it a good shaking.* Here we are. Glasses or straight from the bottle? *waves away the proffered "cigar"* From the smell of that, I'll have to decline. Last time I entered B-space under the influence was not a pretty sight. However...
*exits,then renters carrying a bulging plastic bag in each hand.*
You might be wanting these. There is no place like the 21st century for instant snack goodness.

*a sudden long ringing begins to be emitted from waistcoat pocket. Withdraws pocket watch and looks at it with concern*

My humble apologizes chaps; it seems as if a number of my experiments have escaped from the confinement and are now running out of control. I must dash out for a moment.....

*Presses the button on his watch and the air behind him seems to shimmer briefly. He steps back and disappears, leaving behind the faint scent of jasmine.*

Let's see then... now it's  'The Perfumed Marten', another two toasties, another 'Farma-Sutra', that's thick enough for three, oh, no this is just Orwell's 'Animal Farm', that can stay...

*the political tome falls open at the fold-out centrefold*

Ohmigawd, "Four legs good, five legs...". No, that's definitely ready for another few toasties. Wowsers, I honestly never thought I'd ever have any sympathy for the Farmer, but really.

Righto, pass them around while they're still hot. Somebody throw one towards the beaky-thing - don't try to hand-feed it, it will feed on your hand - and maybe another one to placate that hairy-Harris chap, he's looking at me funny.

Here, little chap - Catch!

* a sudden explosion rocks to room, covering the assembled personages, and critters in a fine layer of smoke and dust*

Whoops, sorry about that chaps, I must have had the capacitator in upside down, however, no real damage done.

*notices the crazy eyes beginning to form on the assembled masses*

Tell you what, the next round is on me, what do you say?

*continues to look at him with 'crazy eyes'*

No no, thanks for the offer, but... it's just that you popped back in in the middle of the arc that I tossed that hairy-thing his Toastie.

Do you feel alright? Not suddenly bloated, or are you perchance lactose-intolerant?

Oh, and what happens when the critter works out where his promised snack ended up?

*looks past him to the little creature with even crazier eyes*

I had wondered what that sudden bulge in my breeches was.

*quickly steps back as a razor sharp beak slices the air where he stood just a moment ago*

Alright Beaky, here you go.

Ohhh, no you don't.
*steps out of B-space portal, exits in a bar across the street an hour ago, shares a beer with the publican, checks watch, politely exits and leaves a generous tip, runs across road and begins to sprint up the fire escape stairs to the second storey, then leaps onto the closest balcony, making his way around the building, until finally reappearing into the smoking room by vaulting over the balcony balustrade, just in time to neatly catch the toastie and fling it back towards the dodo*
I've got a fiver sitting on the dodo beating the hairy poison spitter. You won't get rid of your competition that easily!

*slopes of back to his chair on the balcony, calling for the bartender to fix him a Little Egypt. Settles down in leather chair, lights pipe, and then springs to his feet as a massive peal of thunder and a bolt of green lightning explodes in the sky*

*sitting staring at hand, fascinated by the various concepts wandering in and out thought. Has been like this for the last hour...*

That is an interesting cigar!... *takes another drag, gets mildly distracted by the bright green flash and loud clap of thunder*

Oh-oh...  That can't be good! Green is never good in a plasma discharge. Even worse for an aether discharge!...


*stares at hand*

Whoa!...........uhm.....wait - what?...

My good man, you do not know what you are missing. A little Egypt contains....
2 shots good Scotch Whiskey
2 shots Sherry
1 tsp Absinthe
2 dashes Bitters
1 dash Vermouth
Slice of lime.

Place all libations in a lowball glass and slow stir to mingle. Add ice for them to play with and garnish with the lime.


*massive crash of thunder*

Egads...what was that?

*hears thunder, sits upright with large bag of snack food still over head*

ARRGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I'm trapped! I'M TRAPPED - HELP!

*bag falls off while flailing around like an idiot*

ARGRH I...I'M..........UHM.........oh man, I'm wasted!... *giggles to self*

Barkeep, I need a double shot of neat Absinthe. My mind is to far apart and I need to come back to centre of my head!

Don't look at me like that, it works!

Absinthe seems to be the popular here to then. Help yourselves to the fountain.

Oh I say, whatever is that little sprite....?

Oh, well, that would explain the funny taste in one's mouth the next morning...

Better get a few more sugar cubes.
No, they're not for you!

*pours a large double dose of absinthe into glass - ignores the water fountain*

Ahhh, I love the aroma of this, I love the burning sensation when drinking it neat too. *sips drink*


Lovely...  *continues to sip drink*
In about 10 minutes I should be more....uhm....sober?

*awakes from a dream involving a giant green fairy fighting a massive dodo, which would shoot lasers from its eyes every now and then. Looks suspiciously at the assemblage through slitted eyes, the shrugs*

Bartender, another one please.
