*Stripes sticks his tongue out at Dizzy's retreating form, leaving him with Heart.*
Heart:....you sure you're okay out here?
Stripes:It was only one time, Heart.
Heart:. . . . .
Stripes:It's not going to happen again! Come on! Have some faith in me.
*Watching Stripes for a moment longer, Heart turns and enters the shop. Stripes rolls his eyes and walks over to the bench.*
*A bell chimes upon entering the shop and the smell of ink and old paper fills the air the moment you step through the door. Bookshelves line nearly every wall, chock-full of books of all sizes and genres. What little space that isn't filled with books instead holds trinkets, bookends, and writing supplies such as a jar full of quills and bottles of ink. There's a few spinning racks with a number of colorful cards. Some racks are labeled "Home-made cards".*
*A bored voice drifts out from a room, the entrance hidden by a curtain, behind the glass counter. Inside the glass counter is a number of old looking books and expensive looking writing supplies.*
???:Welcome. I'll be out in a minute so... yeah. Just do whatever. Don't steal though. I got cameras.
*Solar seems to have already found something of interest, looking through a book labeled, "Magical Theory Through The Ages".*

*Heart stares blankly at Dizzy for a moment before glancing at the store window. Something seems to click after a moment because seconds later, Heart looks away, trying to cover up the quiet snort that escapes her as a cough.*
*Stripes groans, running a hoof down his face.*
Stripes:Nooo.... Not writing puns.
*Stripes looks around before gesturing to a nearby bench.*
Stripes:I'm going to stay out here. I don't need to hear another rant about paper. So... I'll see you when you come back. Okay?
*Heart looks over at Stripes and nods.*
*Solar has already entered the shop.*

*Gaster looks over at Papyrus, it seems he's just now noticed that there's a Papyrus here, or at least a different version of his own. He does his best hide his surprise.
Gaster:Er... who is Fry?
*How are Fiji and Hood since they got out?
*Fry remains silent, choosing the slip under the blanket in the basket, his head just barely peaking out from under the edge, gaze still trained on Briar.
*Horror shrugs, though he still seems worried.
Horror:More like a Monday than a Friday.
Fresh:Huh. Sorta like Teddy and Horror. At least you found a way to deal with it.
*Fresh pauses as Alesa races past, frowning after a moment.
*Outside, Fresh stares at Rose, raising a brow at the nickname of "Cthulu". After she leaves, he starts digging through his inventory, pulling out a neon colored lighter and some firecrackers after a few minutes.
*Fresh looks over at Alesa, quietly, he whispers,
Freah:So... You might wanna go over to Teddy. Hide in a crowd, dudette. I'll see if I can make them blame me.
*Fell turns to Ink, nodding to the shorter skeleton.
Fell:Kid. I need you to help watch Crystal. I'm going to help Rose. We'll be back, promise.
*With this, Fell races after Rose.
*The deity sitting on the bed doesn't respond immediately, her expression hidden and the symbol on the mask unchanging. She hums after a moment, rubbing the soreness from her wrists.*
Potato:More than likely... they went after them. Can't say I'm certain about their magic levels, though...
*Potato gestures to the portal, more specifically the bands that are stuck on the Sterling's wrists.*
Potato:They could be trying to overpower the magic nullifying bands. As for the fire magic, one of the others... the new faces there? They could have access to such power.
*Potato glances back at the portal.*
*Blinker has fallen silent once again, this time creeping over to Celaeno's abandoned drink. For a moment, they gaze at the dark liquid, seemingly enamored before suddenly sticking their head into the cup. Despite having no visible mouth, it seems Blinker wants a taste. At least... that is until Blinker tries to pull their head back, only for the mug to follow.
*A muffled, distressed meow is heard.

*Solar huffs, gesturing a hoof to the shop window.*
Solar:Looks more like a bookshop if you ask me, but the name sorta hints otherwise?
*In the window, painted in cursive lettering, is the shop's name, 'Calli-literature'. The display on the other side is a mix of new and old popular book titles, along with writing supplies and a few fancy looking cards.*
Stripes:This is it!
*Heart stares at the display, a small smile creeping onto her expression after a moment.*
Apr 10th 2022 19:36
*Heart's gaze flickers to Dizzy for a moment, her expression unreadable. Stripes catches this, frowning slightly before letting out a laugh, though it sounds the tiniest bit strained.*
Stripes:Hey! At least with sharpie it washes off eventually. You can test what colors work best instead of going in without any idea of how it'll look in the end.
*Solar, having gone up ahead, has stopped in front of a small looking shop crammed between several taller ones. He looks over at Stripes.*
Solar:Hey... Is this the place?
