Home Sweet Home

They discover that the node no longer spills out family court paperwork as Tass. Now, there is a small pile of rocks with the Nordic rune for family etched into them. The feeling around the House is much more peaceful as well.

Old Betty is delighted with her new frog necklace and her husband’s spirit (the old man Jonathan saw earlier) moves into it. The other gifts are given by the girls to the delight of all. The boys tell them about Pete’s warning.

They have a few nights off and Jett and 8thseal blow off some steam by beating up kids trying a beer run, some jaywalkers, and other AIs doing things against the rules.

Later that week, 8thseal hears on the police chatter that there is major fire down on the docks. It is No Water that is burning down.

Florida

The girls take a vacation to Florida for a comic book convention. It is Gwen’s treat to Trixie to make up for all the conflict recently. They wear costumes and have lots of fun going to panels that interest them. At the end, the girls buy presents for all those back home.

The boys get a visit from Hannah to tell them that Pete needs to talk to them. They agree to meet him at a football game since it out in the open and neutral ground. Sitting next to each other in the stadium, Pete warns them that he had to tell his clan about their presence in the town. But he tried to convince the clan that the House is harmless and Pete himself just wants to live and let live with the mages. The boys are not happy about this. They don’t kill Pete though.

They throw a graffiti and breaking party on Friday. Trixie puts up big sheets of paper for people to paint on and they buy tons of cheap dishware for people to break on the floor in one room. It is one of their biggest parties to date. They have to turn people away at the door because the house is so full.

They go to talk to Old Betty, a hedge mage who lost her house to one of the Technocrats hidden in town. She is now living under a bridge. After a lot of arguing and bad attitude on Betty’s part, they get her moved back to the House. The one thing she insists on taking is a frog prince garden statue. Jonathan notices that it has a old man’s spirit attached to it.

Drawn in Red

Jonathan keeps his promise to take the ghost boy some crayons. Since the boy’s favorite color is red, Jonathan fills a whole box with that color and leaves it in the bunker.

There is a night of drunken revelry with Trixie losing a shoe and Jett threatening people in a club with “sex or punch?” as a question. Their night out ends with them back at the House flashing the pizza boy at one am.

Vitner goes to Portland and hires a hitman. When he gets back, there is a big fight between him and Gwen. She believes he has endangered everyone in the House and especially is mad at him taking Trixie on such a mission. He believes he was just taking care of the problem the best way he knows how. There is mind reading without permission, throwing out of stuff, packing stuff to leave, and lighting the garden on fire. The whole house is upset and a big family meeting is called.

The family meeting is tense. It ends with Vitner deciding that, though being around normal mages has been healing for him, they need Gwen more than they need him. He is going to leave. He leaves his gun behind in the care of Jonathan.

They have a run-in with Mary’s mother who is upset at her daughter’s strangeness and recent absence from home. Jonathan goes upstairs to tell Mary about mom, but she doesn’t want to come down. It is decided that she can move into the House.

The Score

Sadie and Gwen go to visit Cameron. He is upset about a bunch of his records and his dj equipment being stolen after last Goth night’s show. They track it all down and return it. In the process, they find him another record with a magic imprint on it that is different than Cameron’s. He happily takes it.

Coco is upset at Gwen being gone so much and how the family is not hanging out together. Keeps calling various people “Pretty girls” or “pretty boys” and crying on their shoulders.

The stealing goes well and the trio retreat to a motel room to count the money. Vitner figures he has enough to pay the Portland mafia to eliminate his mentor. The Portland mob is Greek with the family of Papas family being the head.

Jonathan investigates the old bunker for Technocracy. Instead, he finds the ghost of a young boy from World War II. He promises the boy some crayons.

Halfway in the back yard with the bottom up is ebony coffin with silver ornaments. From inside comes a pounding like bass notes in an empty club, teeth thrumming and insistent. When they open it, out falls Cameron. They find that after his normal stint at Whiskey Joe’s, he got knocked out and woke up inside the coffin.

Jonathan makes the decision to make the Friday party a 1920s themed one. The common room is turned into a speakeasy. Costumes are required to get inside as well as the password. Rebecca comes to this huge party wearing peacock feathers to impress Jonathan.

Stewart goes out searching for a small node for fueling his work. Long grey stone pillars and lots of little steps lead to the courthouse doors. In family court, he finds a node that feels like red tape and family conflict but takes it back anyways. It is installed in the Brick House.

They keep an eye on Hannah to see if she truly visited the dorms in the night. She does a birthday cake for another frat and some dominatrix sessions during the week.

Granny continues her visit. Sadie’s roommate at the dorms is bribed into saying that Sadie still lives there. Granny is suspicious. Later she checks out the hotel that Jonathan got her a room in. Granny says its because of the water pressure in the shower and hits the desk girl with a cane. Jonathan offer the desk girl, named Rebecca, a dinner to make up for dealing with Granny.

Gwen talks to Pete about his offer and turns it down. He seems a little worried but respects her decision. Trixie and Stewart worry about the vampire being from House Tremere.

Even Sadie’s roommate comes.

Granny comes to visit; she was driven down here by Ellis, Sadie’s jealous cousin. Granny is more worried than ever about Sadie after seeing the aftermath of party. From upstairs they all can hear Mary yelling “Oh god, oh god, oh god” and singing hymns. Lyons had given her drugs and awakened her.
