((This is an open post intended for anybody who'd like to play a thread visiting Connor at his forge. I consider any threads on this post fair game for Kai to jump in on, too. Additional similar posts available on request!))



The smithy, Connor's pride and joy, is technically a refurbished shed a little ways out from the back of the house he shares with Kairos. What started as an ivy covered, mostly stone building has since had most of one wall removed and replaced with a set of barn doors, with a sturdy support beam between them. It makes the place drafty and cold in winter, when it's not in use, but once the big forge has been going for an hour or two, it can get hot enough that the open doors let in a welcome breeze.

He has the doors open now, and the open side of the building faces the huge garden plot that takes up much of the back yard. It's covered with snow, now, cross-crossed with doggy pawprints of two different sizes. There's a semicircle of ground before the open doors that's free of snow, although it may be muddy in places. Frequent opening and closing of the doors combined with the heat of the place have melted it away. The sound of hammer on anvil rings out across the yard, and Sorcha is rolling at the edge of the snow with a big stick dragged from the nearby woodsy patch. It's a peaceful scene.

It is a great day to go visiting. And April holds Jonathan in her arms as she makes her way towards Connor forge. She is amazed by the huge garden, and the large area of their home.

Both of them are wearing warm clothing. After all, it is November in their world. So the timing nicely lines up.

"Hey!" April waves with her free hand. Jonathan mimics the movement.

April takes her seat, gently ensuring that Sorcha isn't too energetic around Jonathan. Shelby is a little more trained to be gentle around the baby.

"We are doing great. And you? What are you working on?"

Jonathan is at his grabbing stage. So he might pull at dog ear's or fur, when Sorcha gets too close.

"Ohhh somethng for Kairos?"

"They are beautiful Connor." April admires the work with a smile.

Jonathan grabs his hand and babbles softly to him. He giggles at the schnuffing from Sorcha. And babbles to the dog too.

"He recognized you."

Jonathan seems to be telling a story right now. Not that anyone could understand him.

"The older he gets, the more he can do. It is really amazing watching him some days."

Balthazar sends a warning by means of a PINpoint text, just to let Connor know he's about to visit, but whether the busy smith will notice is hard to say. In any case, he arrives five minutes later, carrying a grocery bag and a six pack of Guiness. He whistles to the dog and waits patiently to see how she'll react to his sudden arrival, before advancing closer to her master.

The charge is a little intimidating, but it's so immediate and exuberant that Balthazar figures it's not an attack. Obviously his assumption is correct. He laughs at the play bows, bending and ducking a bit in response, and then lopes over to Connor once he sees he knows he's there.

"Afternoon! I come bearing gifts. How have you been?"

Balthazar chuckles again at the dog, but hesitates to get her more riled up than she is in the middle of Connor's workspace. "Hello, Sorcha. You're a good dog."

He sets his burdens down, glancing at Connor's work curiously, then back to his friend. "Oh? Where did you go? I'm sorry I haven't been in touch much."

He may have to run off and play with her later. Saint isn't nearly so exuberant. Reflecting that she's a good match for her master's physical endurance, he turns back to Connor. "Japan? It's been a long time since I've been there."

He pushes the six-pack forward gently. "A specialty store opened up a few blocks from me. Help yourself; it's chilled."

Balthazar sits gamely and picks up the grocery bag. "I also brought some dog treats for the pets, and some candied violets for Kairos."

He pushes the bag at Connor, then retrieves a beer for himself. He brought them to share, after all. "I keep thinking I could go back to Wales. I'm not sure I'm ready, but...maybe if I drag Maximus along..."

grimholdkeeper: (lol)
From: [personal profile] grimholdkeeper
"Oh?" He looks at him. "I'll go with you if you'll go with me."

He might still drag Horvath along. He doesn't think Maxim and Connor would be best of friends, but they shouldn't clash badly, either.

Smiling, he nods at the suggestion. "I couldn't remember the little one's name. Regina seems about right, though."
