[ What's this? It's Anders! And he looks a little... puzzled. ]

I don't suppose anyone's seen Ser Pounce-a-lot around, have they? About so big- [ He holds out his hands, indicating the size of a smallish kitten. ] -White and grey, very quick on his feet.

It's just that I can't quite seem to find him, and though I know he knows well enough to stay away from those nasty, vicious Darkspawn, I can't help but be a little bit worried.

So. [ A rather troubled grin. ] Kitten. Yes? No? Somewhere around, maybe? If it's any help, he likes getting inside packs.

[ Pinged. ]

You named a kitten Ser Pounce-a-lot?
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 05:30 am (UTC)
[ Hey. Pot calling kettle black, here. ] It's a perfectly good name for a perfectly brilliant kitten, I'll have you know.

Unless your Majesty has something he'd like to say about it...?
fitzmaric on June 11th, 2010 05:32 am (UTC)
Don't you think it's maybe a little clunky? And anyway -- [ Did this guy just call him... yes, he did. ]

I'm not the King! Not yet, anyway, and I certainly hope not to be, so just Alistair will do, thank you.

Or am I actually King, to you?
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 05:35 am (UTC)
Oh, you don't know yet? [ How fun. Anders grins very very widely. ] Well. In that case, don't let me spoil the surprise for you. After all, I'm just your everyday ordinary apostate looking for his missing pet cat, Alistair. So if you've seen him around anywhere...
fitzmaric on June 11th, 2010 05:42 am (UTC)
I... can't say I have, no. [ For some reason, Alistair feels as if he's only understanding half of this conversation.

That is possibly because he is only understanding half of this conversation. ]
You did say he's good at getting in packs, but I'm pretty sure mine's empty -- so nope, can't help you there.

Though on a completely unrelated note, you did just say you were an apostate, didn't you?
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 05:47 am (UTC)
Absolutely. I'm very well acquainted with the Circle's holding cells and dungeons, I'll have you know. [ This is so much fun! ] If you ever feel like taking a trip down and need a guide...
fitzmaric on June 11th, 2010 05:54 am (UTC)
Ah, no. No, really. I'll just... decline that offer for now, if you don't mind.

[ Just a moment, though. Alistair frowns. ] What's an apostate doing with a pet cat, anyway?
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 05:57 am (UTC)
What, us evil, grave-robbing, blood-sucking foul creatures of the night can't have pets?
Ave Suranaiceintheblood on June 11th, 2010 06:50 am (UTC)
...Anders.

There are claw marks in my robes.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 07:01 am (UTC)
So there are! Amazing, who'd have thought it? Why, I'd never have noticed if you hadn't just pointed... it... out.

[ This is his bullshitting to the max face. ]

I don't suppose you've seen the culprit who could have done such a horrible deed, have you?
Ave Surana: Smugiceintheblood on June 11th, 2010 07:05 am (UTC)
If I had, the sweet little dear would have slightly frosty fur as a warning.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 07:10 am (UTC)
You wouldn't! He's just a kitten! Why, what possible harm could he do? Sure, a few threads and tatters, but he couldn't have possibly meant any real harm. It's probably because he likes you so much. I just bet he does.
Ave Surana: Smileiceintheblood on June 11th, 2010 07:12 am (UTC)
I wouldn't hurt him. Just... give him a bit of a chill.

Need I remind you how difficult it is to find nice robes?

And darling Ser Pounce-a-lot is welcome to tear up any tapestry he likes or even my bed linens, but not my robes!
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 07:21 am (UTC)
That's quite bad enough! Who knows what frost would do to a poor, innocent cat like he is? Although I have to say he certainly can't be all that innocent. The other day, there were hairballs in my clothes...

[ Shrug. ] I, ah, don't suppose I could convince you to forgive him for such a slight transgression, perhaps? If a little bit of grovelling would help, I'm all for it. Though I'm not that good a groveller, to be honest.
Ave Surana: Smileiceintheblood on June 11th, 2010 07:22 am (UTC)
I suppose he makes up for it by keeping away all the rats.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 07:48 am (UTC)
...Yes! Absolutely.

So if you do happen to see him around, you'll tell me, won't you? Without turning him into a pile of frozen cat, first?
Ave Surana: Smugiceintheblood on June 11th, 2010 07:57 am (UTC)
I'll bring him back safe if I find the little troublemaker.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 08:06 am (UTC)
You're an absolute lifesaver. Allow me to thank you in advance, for that.
shankedvaughan on June 11th, 2010 07:52 am (UTC)
I don't think I've seen your cat, but I have to say that he has one awesome name. I'll keep an eye out for him.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 07:55 am (UTC)
Now there's a man with taste. I'd thank you, but I'm a bit worried- that kitten gets absolutely everywhere.
shankedvaughan on June 11th, 2010 08:15 am (UTC)
Heh. I haven't seen him anywhere. Do you have anything to lure him out? His favorite snack or something?
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 08:22 am (UTC)
He's got quite the fondness for dried mackerel- here, I've got a few strips. [ Holds them out. ] Only thing is, as I'm sure you've noticed, they... smell. Quite a bit. If he's been nibbling on these things, I'm almost certain you'll be able to sniff him out long before you see him.
shankedvaughan on June 11th, 2010 09:15 am (UTC)
Ugh. [Wrinkles his nose.] Haven't smelled that until you showed me. Does he respond to his name? Snuffy does when I call him.
sparklefingers on June 11th, 2010 09:28 am (UTC)
Well... sort of, yes. He also responds to being tickled, pet, and scratched under the chin. Most cats do, or so I've found.
shankedvaughan on June 11th, 2010 09:37 am (UTC)
I don't know much about cats. Last time I encountered one, it was a possessed by a Desire Demon. [Nods his head at the memory.] I didn't know they could do that.
sparklefingers on June 12th, 2010 11:21 am (UTC)
Do what, get possessed by demons or respond to being scratched under the chin?
shankedvaughan on June 13th, 2010 12:57 am (UTC)
[Laughs.] The demons part.
sparklefingers on June 13th, 2010 01:21 pm (UTC)
Well, that's demons for you- I've seen a cat get possessed before, it was a bit of a mess, really. And rather a pity, I'd liked him.
Elissa Cousland, The Warden: ♦ curiouser and curiousercarryon_thename on June 12th, 2010 12:40 pm (UTC)
[...uh oh. Elissa's Mabari has a habit of eating small, furry animals.]

...I can't say that I've seen one, no.
sparklefingers on June 12th, 2010 01:04 pm (UTC)
Doesn't seem like anyone has, to be honest. It's making me more than a touch worried, and I absolutely hate to be worried. Much more fun to be carefree and cheerful, after all.

...Perhaps you've heard him around somewhere, then?
carryon_thename on June 12th, 2010 06:27 pm (UTC)
I can't say that I have. I'm sure I would've remembered...you might ask Sten. He apparently loves to dangle string for small kittens.
sparklefingers on June 13th, 2010 01:22 pm (UTC)
A helpful suggestion! I'd love to take you up on it, but I'm afraid I'm not quite familiar with... Sten?
tentassassin on June 14th, 2010 05:57 am (UTC)
Dah, what the hey.
Ah, that explains why my pack smells like piss. At least, I hope that is the reason.
teyrnsson on June 14th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Re: Dah, what the hey.
Oh, hello, Zevran. I think I saw my mabari chasing a small, furry mammal in there; didn't want to tell you out of fear that I'd get assassinated.

[Horace makes a gesture to his sleeping mabari, in the hopes that Zevran will understand what happened.]
