    Violet looks at Mia like she's an idiot. No, I don't... I don't wanna be a buckin'... robot, I wanna be me again! This isn't hard, surely? Just buckin' undo whatever dumb wish nonsense she did to me. Violet was very attached to her old body. Was this whole buckin' affair just a waste of my Celestia damned time? She asks Mia. You can't actually help me at all, can you?

    "Oh, uh, that's not a bad price for a good watch," Reinholdt encourages Anika, his point of view probably skewed. Cats have terrible perspective on pricing! "Better than a cheap magwatch anyways. Costing one fifth of the price is not worth the thirty second ad you have to go through every time you want to know the time."

    Reinholdt floats away from the watch area and to the toys. "Alright, my turn. Which of these would be good for a five year old girl? One with an interest in grand adventures and laser swords and maybe guns but mostly laser swords. She got some sisters recently. Oh, I'll probably want something for them too? No, they're too young for toys. Might just give some diapers and call it- oh no wait! A music box! That'd be perfect. Right. I'll need one music box and one toy." The flying feline definitely talks to himself a fair bit here, but he addresses the others at the same time.

    "You should get her a pet." Anika suggests to Rein. "Kids love those." Her own suggestion seem to make an idea occur to her. "I'll uh..." She looks between the two watches and finally picks out the wooden watch.. "I guess I take this one then. But I'm interested now, are there like, clockwork pets? Cute little things? I've seen some that works on goblin magic."

    "Excellent." Talman set the watch on the counter, next to the music boxes. Most of them were closed, but four were open and engaging in a four-part harmony, their figures dancing in sync. Talman couldn't help but show off a little, it seemed.

    "For toys, we have nicknacks of all kinds around here. Given your charge's description, I would recommend purchasing a puzzle box; few things carry quite the same allure, and great unsolved mysteries are the starting point of many a great adventure. As for clockwork pets... we carry a few, yes, but if the price of a watch is a concern for you, I'm afraid full-blown creatures are out of the question."

    "Wha- No! No, no, gods no." Though short of shouting, Ithuriel definitely raises her voice and looks more than a little alarmed at that suggestion.

    But only for a moment. It's not like Wings knew, after all.

    "You idiot." She mumbles softly, slipping a hand free to bop him on the shoulder. Lightly, or as lightly as she can manage anyway. Probably still gonna leave a bruise. "The death god was a child. Like a- like a demigod or something, had the powers thrust on him and couldn't control it, and big dumb angel down here figured the best thing to do was to just take it all on the chin and talk to him until he calmed down."

    She winces. Thinking about it hurts. Everything still kind of hurts. She really needs to just go pass out for a week or something.

    "I'm such an idiot. Heavens forbid I try thinking my way out of a problem for once, huh? I dunno how you guys do it, Wings. How do you deal with this ****? I just-" She pauses and sobs, burying her head in Ambriel's clothes again. "I just want some time away from all this, y'know? to just...forget. With you."

    "Ohhh, a puzzle box. Good idea. I love those," Reinholdt says, paw starting to reach for one. He hesitates though and withdraws. "But, uh, as adventurous as those are, they might require too much patience for a five year old. Especially this one." Reinholdt remembers the near melt-down Annie had just from Rein and Kitty catching up.

    "And I don't think her mom would appreciate an extra pet right now. But a clockwork pet, there's an idea." Not as cuddly, but much less responsibility. Reinholdt floats back to the counter. "Can I see what you have of those?"

    "So, uh, do I just leave the money on the counter, or...?" Anika might just be speaking to herself at this point as Tallman was focusing on the catty customer. Thus she rummages around in her pockets and pull out a pouch of coins which she places on the counter.
    She falls silent as she watches the little dancing figures, almost wanting to touch one of them in fascination, but considering what had happened last time...

    "You don't seem to understand it." Mia says still in a normal voice. It's no use to be unpolite even after that insult. "There is nothing I can 'undo'. Imagine it like you wrote something with a pencil and erased it. there would be still a trace of that change, but in your case there is nothing. There are 'wonders' I can do in some occasions, but they would be of no use here since i don't even know how you looked befor that wish. A wish is a powerfull magic with no bounds.

Futher down, mice size is a green stuff animal lizard making his way to the shop corner to 'step in line' behind the floating cat and the tall druid.

    Celestia, a waste of my time. Thanks! Violet says. She meant to be sarcastic but it comes out very genuine. She lifts into the air again, floating back to the door. Enjoy your life! She yells backward - and again, whatever her new form is doing to her, it's stopping her from being as sarcastic as she'd like. Dang pony brain. Unless anyone does anything to stop her she'll float out of the door.

    She is free to go. The people of DMside are very neutral, unless you appear as a dangerouse person. So if Violet flies off there is no harm in it.

    Mia will just shake her head after the pony left. Then she gives some orders to the guards. If a humanoid person with simular outfit comes into DMside they should keep an eye on her. Can't be safe in that case.

    "Right. That'll be [O_O MONIES]." Talman unlocked the case behind him in preparation to demonstrate one of those clockwork pets when... is that a lizard? A stuffed lizard? ...Sure, why not. Talman shrugged and produced a totally original clockwork artifact. "This is the only finished piece I have in stock for the moment... as you can imagine, a convincing facsimile of life represents a significant investment of time and effort. If you have about a month, I can do a commission."

    Reinholdt is distracted momentarily by the small lizard and stares at it with an appraising and hungry eye. Hmm. HMMMM.
    ...
    That'd probably make a good pet for Annie.
    "Hey you. Are you looking to give up your independence and freedom and have a young child take care of you?" They always seem to want that in those movies.

    Clockwork owl though. Hooty-hoo! "Don't really have a month. This is good. I'll take this owl and that music box over there please." Reinholdt says, pointing out the preferred music box of choice.

    "...Awesome." Anika declares to herself as she counts up amount she has to pay and places them on the counter. She isn't used to getting receipts or anything so unless Talman stops her she will simply leave with the watch in hand.

And then they could relax aboard the boat, cruise around, and try not to get abducted by pirates. Hmm, not your worst idea, Wings.

    First of the creature is a stuffed animal like a teddy bear, just simular to lizard. So not a stuffed lizard.

    When Reinholdt stares at the creature it stares back with his round black pearls as eyes. Thought he got no eyelids to blink or white parts to see where he looks at.
    The others looking at them might suddendly get black bars over and under their eyes like in those old western movies where they stare at each other at high noon. Strange isn't it? It disapeares the moment the small creature talks.

    "If you ask me that way." he replies with a clear voice like a human man standing there. "the answer is no. I value my independence and freedom more then you might imagine. Futhermore I got business to run. My hotel needs a manager and that is me."

    Other then that he will just make a few slow steps away from the floating cat with the hungry eyes.

    Ithuriel raises an eyebrow. "Just the two of us, alone in the ocean, or do we have to bring the rest of them along too?" She asks, managing a half-smile and awkwardly climbing back to her feet.

    "I've never been there, no. And I'm sure I can shift a boat for you. And I think I'd like that." She sighs and rests her head on Ambriel's shoulder. "I'd like that a lot."

    This lizard doesn't know the toy movies the cat thought about. After all he looks at the floating cat and waits until he is a bit away befor turning his attention at the shopkeeper.

    "I guess a commisson would be the way." he replies from the bottom and slowly walks closer to the corner. (Which in his case means normal waling on his tiny paws.)

    "Unfortunately, no, I do not have such a device currently in stock." Talman replied. "I do, however, have several model cars on sale. It would be trivial for me to fit them with the appropriate internal workings. Alternatively, if you have a particular model you would like me to facsimulate, I can do so for a reasonable price." Talman set a ladder up to the counter, so the two could talk face-to-face... he figured it would be rude to pick up an esteemed business man like the toy he resembled.

    There is a slight flicker of... well, disappointment, perhaps, as the kumiho processes Nadia's suggestion. Mostly, it was disappointment in herself for not learning of such a clear solution to her problem... but it wasn't quite just that. See, Anastasia hasn't quite moved past the loss of her parents - or at least, not enough to feel ready for the whole process of orphanages. Adoption wasn't replacement and she knew it wouldn't happen quickly anyways, but that didn't stop the idea of a foster family from feeling like a replacement, a dishonor to her parents reminiscent of remarrying in the wake of the death of a spouse.

    And so there was a certain troubled tinge as Anastasia responds, hands fidgeting in her lap. "I understand, I- I'll talk to them, see if they can help me."

Talman set a ladder up to the counter, so the two could talk face-to-face... he figured it would be rude to pick up an esteemed business man like the toy he resembled.
    [Talman's Toys]

    Ladders... they are the allys of his worst enmy. FURNITURE. The fact that the steps are all to far away for his little paws is very frustrating. Imagine a TRex who also has short feet. Yes it would look funny but then imagine how impossible ladders are. To his Luck the stuff animal got some trick on his own.

    The store suddendly turns dark like it became deep night. every light appears like it is far away building something like a city in the background. Suddendly a light emerges from one of the buildings shining up into the sky and leaving a signal where the ceiling has been. A shadow in that light can be seen aaaaand it kind of looks like a bat making a C with his wings like in YMCA.
    Then a noise appearse. something like a shot... indeed a grappling gun was shot and the hook his the ceiling who looks like a building nearby the corner in front of Talman. A cable winch carrys a black creature up the rope. The creature has the same size as the stuff animal, but it wears a tight black leather outfit with to many pectoral muscles and bat like wings. When he is right above the corner he let's loose of the hookgun and glides down with the wings, posing like the famouse hero he just copys. With a dark voice he adds "I AM CMAN"

    In a blink of an eye all those effects are gone and the green stuff animal sits on the corner like nothing happened.
    "I got something in mind, but if you got something simular it should be fine, heres a picture." he says and draws a picture out of nowhere.

    Nadia leans forward to try to give Ana's hand a comfortaing pat. "I know it won't be an easy step, but it'll be for the best in the long run. If you want, we can accompany you there whenever you want to go." She offers. She doesn't want to be pushy, though. She can't even imagine what she must be coping with right now.

    "I've never been there, no. And I'm sure I can shift a boat for you. And I think I'd like that." She sighs and rests her head on Ambriel's shoulder. "I'd like that a lot."
    "Just us then," Ambriel agrees. "I'll tell everyone the boat needs extensive testing in a safe, controlled, vacation environment before they can put guns and wings and jet engines on it. I think I've still got one last favor to call in after passing out pictures of Magtok in his Thanksmas costume, they shouldn't whine and complain too much." Not that it'll matter if they do. Ithuriel's their only reliable means of getting that boat off dry land; they'll just have to wait their turn if she feels she's owed a chance to cruise around on its second maiden voyage.

    Talman allows the superhero cameo to pass without comment. "I see..." He murmurs, his eyes scanning the page line-by-line, like a great big old fax machine. "If I remember this vehicle correctly, it has far more features than can be ascribed to most other vehicles of similar build, some of which would undoubtedly improve its maneuverability and utility value. It may save you some of the trouble associated with regular travel... you could accomplish with the press of a button or the flipping of a switch what would normally require a gymnastics routine." His fingers rapped rhythmically against the counter as he considered the design implications. "Of course, it'd be considerably more expensive to produce, and would take longer to properly rig, test, and adjust, but I believe the benefits would be well worth the cost. Would that be acceptable to you?"
    Who're you? ...Don't matter.

    Irena taps her phone without paying much attention to the conversation until Nadia starts leaning forward and squeezes Ana's hand. Then she quickly puts it away as seems like some kind of emotional huggy moment and she didn't want to look callous.

    Those effects that appear are all random. the small creature has no direct controll over it so many diferetn things can happen.

    "Just in case, I don't need all the tricks the real vehicle had. Weapons are unnessesary. Only things that make it easier to move around or such would be appropriate. I'm aware it could be expensive, but I hope it will be in resonable margines. Then I won't have a problem paying for it."

    "Oh man, you kept pictures of that?" That's enough to get a full smile and a chuckle out of Ithuriel. Good ol' Wings, knowing just what to say to cheer her up. "I'll have to get it cleared with the boss first, but honestly I imagine anyone who takes one look at me is gonna tell me to go home. So, uh, just tell me where, and I'll meet you down there tomorrow."

    She sighs and looks back up at Ambriel's batcomputer. "I think...we might need to talk about some of this a bit more, but it can wait, okay? And thank you."
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    "Of course. I imagine the authorities wouldn't be keen on my selling a fully-functional battle tank, either, regardless of the scale." Talman began drawing up a bill. "Half now, half upon delivery. Does this price seem fair?"

    Anastasia gives a small nod, looking up and forcing a shaky little smile. "I... yes, I would, er, greatly appreciate it. I'm- well, I'm not sure I can quite work up the courage to do that alone, I'm afraid." She thinks for a second before shyly venturing, "But, er... I'd like to ask if there's anything I can do in return for your kindness.'
