[Action- 752 Partridge Drive ]

[Pete's searching the house that's supposedly his. He had a bit of a scare earlier that morning before Ray came and found him and they sought out Egon. It wasn't that Peter wasn't used to weird things like this, but the whole make-believe family bit was a little uncalled for. It'd be one thing to wake up, hungover in bed with a woman, it was a completely different story when that woman was some kind of lifeless drone with a ring on her finger. Let's not even bring the kids into this, he didn't even know the first thing about raising kids.

Venkman moves to the kitchen, opening and closing the cabinets, rummaging through drawers, etc. He's looking for answers and not having a hell of a lot of luck. A few irritated noises can be heard before he gives up and slumps into a chair at the table.]


[Action - Olney's Tavern]

[After giving up on any clues, and finding nothing else to amuse himself with in his house, Venkman heads to the Tavern for a stiff drink to take the edge off. He finds the entire atmosphere cheesy but at this point, anything is better than playing house. He takes a seat at the bar, ordering himself a glass of brandy. Maybe he can find answers there... after all, according to Egon they weren't the only people trapped in the town.]

[What's going on Venkman? You're going to find yourself tended to today by a bartender who, by all means, seems way more happy then he should be about just about everything. He's almost nauseously up beat.

It also takes him far longer than it really should to get your brandy, but hey. He eventually does it.]


There you go sir!

Anything else?

Well... there is something.

Yeah? I can do it for you!

Uh. Whatever it is. Probably.

[He peered around before speaking, keeping his voice low.]

What can you tell a newcomer about this place?

[Oh. Well, his smile kinda falls at that as he brings his voice down a little.]

...Sorry man. I don't know too much. I got put in here just last month. All I really know is we can't go home, all or stuff from back home is gone, and you can't leave. Apparently, people have been trying for a few years and still can't.

Well. So much for my holiday plans...

[after dropping off his mass of toasters back at his house, Ray's decided to tag along with Venkman for a while so that he can get a better layout of the town. somehow they've found their way into a bar, and it's a good thing, too. he's positively dying for a drink right now.

having already ordered some beer, Ray's sitting next to Peter, contemplating his bottle with a thoughtful, troubled look.]

What are you thinking, pal?

From: [identity profile] pkeccentric.livejournal.com
[he doesn't reply immediately and instead takes a gulp of beer.]

'bout everything, Pete. The town, the stuff in that brochure that Spengler showed us, the people trapped here...

[he shakes his head.]

It just doesn't seem real.

Hey, maybe it's not. [He takes a drink of his brandy.]

Maybe you wake up tomorrow in the firehouse... drooling on yourself.

From: [identity profile] pkeccentric.livejournal.com
I've lost track of how much I've pinched myself today. Unless we're in a coma of some sort, I highly doubt that'll be the case.

[he slams his bottle down on the table with a little more force than necessary.]

What do you make of it all? [he offers a wry but sluggish half-smile.] You really dug that gal Spengler was with, didn't you?

Date: 2011-10-17 03:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sosghosts.livejournal.com
It's obviously a very ...elaborate scheme. I'm just not sure of the bigger picture.

[He takes another drink, chuckling a bit at Ray's last comment.]

That gal was watching me like I was about to rob the place.

From: [identity profile] pkeccentric.livejournal.com
Well, let's think about this. Why do you suppose they want us to believe that our lives in New York were a lie as opposed to this? [he makes a clumsy, sweeping gesture at the dingy little bar.]

Maybe she was upset that we broke into her house. [he knocks back his bottle again, downing nearly half of it.] I get the feeling she really, really likes Spengler. Kinda strange - after the thing with Janine, I didn't think he was looking for a relationship anymore.

From: [identity profile] sosghosts.livejournal.com
Maybe it's some sort of consolation prize.

[He finishes his drink, tapping the glass to signal for another.]

He seemed pretty stiff.

From: [identity profile] pkeccentric.livejournal.com
For what? We deal with ingratitude from the skeptics on a daily basis and put our asses on the line for the sake of the city whenever the situation calls for it, and this is what we get in return?

[he can't help it - with a groan, he slumps down on the table, burying his face into the wood. even when Venkman keeps speaking, he stays like that and is subsequent reply is muffled:]

Duh, it's Egon. And yet the girls swarm to him like bees on honey. Look at Janine.

Obviously their idea of happiness was a lot different than ours.

[He picks up a second drink, taking a sip.]

Green isn't a good color on you, Francine.

[One of the said kids is now toddling into the kitchen, possibly attracted by all the noise. She's very small, like a scrawny five year old girl, and sleepy; when she yawns, little pointy teeth are revealed. She only covers the yawn almost too late to be of any good, and her fingers seem to be tipped with claws. They're a very pretty red, though! Just painted the day before.


Her eyes are red, too; from over here, she's looking up at him a bit blearily. And her first words are in French. An almost unintelligible murmur of French, asking why it's so early.



...hey, Flandre's a nocturnal creature. Diurnal sleeping patterns are still weird!
]

:O! It's okay!

Date: 2011-10-21 04:42 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sosghosts.livejournal.com
[He looks up slowly, watching the girl move into the room. There are definitely some odd things about her, but he's not exactly sure if he's seeing correctly or it's the stress doing it to him. He shakes his head for a second as if to snap himself out of something.

And he definitely doesn't know French.]


...sorry?

[Flandre chirps at him.

...and then slowly waddles in a circle around this Strange Man to get a better look.

Are you a pirate?

Date: 2011-10-21 10:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sosghosts.livejournal.com
[He raises an eyebrow at that one... mostly hoping that he doesn't look like a pirate.

The girl wasn't like the others. Well, his "wife", anyway. She had a lot more life to her. He watched her closely, not sure of how to react.]


I don't think so.

From: [identity profile] there-were-none.livejournal.com
The last man who was here was a pirate! But he turned into a dream-person for a long time, so I think he left.
