"...burning the mahogany."

"...destroying..."

Kipper woke up with a start, screaming his head off.

"THE NEXT PERSON WHO LAYS A HAND ON MY MAHOGANY IS GON-"

*conk*

Kipper lay back down, having smacked his head rather hard on the underside of a table. He heard a soft little scream, and then running footsteps. Ouch.

When she heard screaming about mahogany, Brightness leapt off the table in surprise, giving a little shriek. After ducking behind CarolaDavar for cover, she released a shaky breath, trying to compose herself. "Sorry, sorry. Calming down now." She said, hand over her heart. Warily, she bent down to check who or what had been under the table. It was... Kipper?

"You very nerely gave me a heart attack!" She scolded, suddenly losing any remaining nervousness. "And what are you even doing down th- you know what, actually, I'm not sure I want to know." Brightness said. Turning back to CarolaDavar, she gestured at the table. "You see? I'm up serving root beer for half the night and he's admiring the undersides of tables! Well, that or doing forgery, but-" she cut off, looking at CarolaDavar. "Oh! Is this your spren and sword?"

Stormgate waltzes in.

"Hi guys! Do you like what I have done to that wall?" Stormgate motioned to the aforementioned crumbling fourth wall.

"That was you!?" Brightness demanded, sending a sharp look to Stormgate, "Oh, of course. Your member title. I should've known." she paused for a moment, blinking several times. "Wait, what am I doing? I can't be referencing titles mid-RP. It only leads to chaos, confusion, and the disintegration of the fourth wall!" Putting a hand to her head, Brightness gave a long sigh.

 

"Okay, Stormgate, have some root beer. Feel free to punch the wall a few times if you'd like. This has never been a super strict guild, so as long as you say something about root beer while doing it, you're probably not breaking any treatises." Brightness shrugged and took a sip of her root beer before turning back to CarolaDavar. 

 

"Welcome to the Root Beer Bar, Lavala. Oh, speaking of... Kipper! This is CarolaDavar, she's a new initiate. Add her to the member list as- hmm. Carola? What would you like to go on the list as? A root beer Bard? Patron goddess of root beer? Something else?"

Kipper groaned.  He wiggled his fingers to check if they worked. They did, so he levered himself with his hands and promptly smashed into the table again. "Ow!" He laid back down.

 

This time, he made absolutely sure to slide out from under the table before pushing himself up. Kipper wobbled on his legs rather erratically, reaching out a hand to steady himself on a table. Those hits had been rather hard. But I have a hard head.

 

"Brightness! Long time..." Kipper paused.

 

Wow, she's...wow.

 

"Brightness Random, I can't thank you enough for all the work you've done to keep this place up," Kipper could feel the grin spreading across his face. Stepping gingerly on bare feet, he moved over to the bar and ran a hand over it. Besides a little dust, perhaps a day old, it was spotless. "This is really incredible."

 

The Brightness blushed, as was her wont.

 

"But enough of that!" Kipper spun on a heel. "I need some socks! Shoes! Introductions! And most of all...root beer!"

 

He grabbed a mug from behind the bar.

Oh and, don't worry about my sword.

am I allowed to stab the 4th wall? It seems very uncreative

No, Lightsketch, we don't want the root beer bar to break down !

Think of all that delicious root beer you'd waste!

"Well," Brightness said, clearing her throat and hoping her blush would clear soon, "I did my best to keep the place clean. Though, um, I hope you don't mind that the wall's falling apart. It wasn’t on the chores list, so... yeah."

Gesturing dramatically to CarolaDavar, Brightness Random announced, "May I present our new patron goddess, CarolaDavar." She then rushed and threw open a coat closet. A huge mountain of boots tumbled out. "Here's some shoes..." She then fetched a pitcher of root beer and filled Kipper's mug. "Introductions, shoes - don't have socks - and root beer! Now, all taken care of. Don't have anymore excuses not to add Carola to the list."

"Lightsketch, feel welcome to stab the fourth wall. It's broken anyway, you really can't do any harm."

Brightness sighed and collapsed onto a bar stool. It seemed any hopes of the wall eventually being repaired were now to be crushed. "I suppose three walls can support the ceiling perfectly well." She muttered to herself, "might as well accept it..."

Reaching under the bar, Brightness Random retrieved a large sheet paper. Using pink paint, she painted the words, "BREAK ME". Several feet down from where CarolaDavar and Lightsketch were attacking, she pinned the sign onto a still standing portion of the wall.

"Thanks, Brightness," Kipper said, but she was already gone, in her usual frenetic whirlwind of activity.

Kipper threw back the mug and burped loudly.

 

The door banged as one of the strangers exited the Bar. Kipper jumped despite himself, and burped again.

 

"Hello Ms. Davar, and welcome to the Bar! We've never had a sentient sword bring a hum--I mean, a human bring a sentient sword before! Rather...an interesting experience. But it's good to have new faces!" Kipper set his mug down carefully in the ring of liquid already on the bar. "Now, we have some repairs to do, and I'd appreciate it if you would help us out." He cracked his knuckles, leaned his stool back down, and stood up.

 

"First of all, this 'fourth wall' that's got everybody all in a tizzy. That needs to be fixe--Woah, Brightness, you want to break that?"

Carola stood back and smiled at Brightness, then looked at her hand work. "I'm going to do that whenever I feel stressed, it's great."

"It certainly looks like fun," Brightness replied with a smile. "So which Sanderson books have you read?"

Pretty much all of them, except Warbreaker, Elantris, Legion,and White sand

and yet you know so much about Nightblood to have a sword like it?

Yes....... i've studied up a little on Nightblood, for lack of a chance to read Warbreaker

Brightness blushed slightly as she realized that she had earlier ignored Kipper's question in favor of chatting with CarolaDavar. She turned to him and gave an awkward shrug. "We've never been a completely conventional guild. I figure it's fine. Unless you think we should get it patched up...?"

 

Pouring out yet another mug of soda, Brightness toasted CarolaDavar. "You made it through Mistborn and Stormlight? Very nicely done. Who's your favorite character?"

Kelsier from Mistborn, and Renarin from Stormlight (though if you look at the stormlight gallery, I love to make fun of Adolin)

Then a man burst through the door, smacking the flat side of his sword against several object yelling "WHY CAN I WIN!!!!!!"

 

He flips over a chair, and while falling manages to flip over an entire barrel of root beer on him. "hmm this is good stuff"
