((The second fight, between Borris Stormcrow and Dr. Dayafter, had to be called, as that pesky thing called RL interfered. But I think Junie and I gave everyone their money’s worth.
If you didn’t tip our wonderful hostess, Bianca Namori, or try your luck on the boxing card vendor, I’d suggest doing so soon! *looks at her cards, wondering what the heck she’s going to do with 4 cards of Edward Pearse*
Now…let’s see how much text this can handle…))
[17:53] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach looks at the card curiously
[17:54] Junie Ginsburg tugs at the ropes and stretches
[17:54] Bookworm Hienrichs swallows nervously, pacing back and forth.
[17:54] Bianca Namori: leans over the banister and smiles.
[17:55] Bookworm Hienrichs looks up at Miss Namori, her eyes narrowing into a glare before she looks away.
[17:56] Junie Ginsburg watches Book from across the ring, curious about her opponent.
[17:57] Bookworm Hienrichs feels Ms. Ginsburg’s eyes on her, but she keeps her gaze down as she stretches, holding the ropes.
[17:58] Bianca Namori: cracks her knuckles a bit and calls over the banister. “Borris, give it ten minutes after, slow walkers and all.”
[17:58] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach tucks the card into his pocket.
[17:58] Junie Ginsburg exhales sharply hearing that the match will be delayed. She tries to focus.
[17:58] Borris Stormcrow nods to the woman upstairs “Of course, better to give women more time to be ready for boxing”
[17:59] Bianca Namori: grins and nods turning back to look out the window thoughtfully.
[17:59] Stereo Nacht: Thank you, Herr Baron, and good evneing!
[17:59] Satu Moreau: Hello hello!
[17:59] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Hallo, Fraulein Stereo. Join me here at the rail.

[17:59] Bianca Namori: waves.
[17:59] Sky Melnik: Evening, Jimmy!
[18:00] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: I hear Herr Jimmy.
[18:00] Stereo Nacht: Good evening Miss Namori!
[18:00] Scottie Melnik: Good evening, Jimmy!
[18:00] Junie Ginsburg tugs on the ropes again, stretching.
[18:00] Borris Stormcrow: Good eve to all who are joining for this wonderful boxing match this eve, in 10 minutes we will begin, enjoy each other’s talk until then
[18:00] Bianca Namori: nods to Bookworm and Junie to take their stools.
[18:00] Arnold: *Pippy just keeps taking pictures*
[18:00] Stereo Nacht: Good evening Mr. Branagh!
[18:00] Arnold: Good luck Miss Hienrichs!
[18:01] Bianca Namori: Everyone please get closer to the ring to make room for those who are coming. My thanks.
[18:01] Jimmy Branagh waves
[18:01] Junie Ginsburg makes a move toward the ring hearing the signal from upstairs
[18:01] Bookworm Hienrichs gingerly inserts herself between the ropes and steps into the ring, looking around a little furtively. She sits down on the stool in her corner.
[18:01] Stereo Nacht: Good luck, and fair play, ladies!
[18:01] Junie Ginsburg climbs into the ring solemnly and scuffs the bottom of her shoes on the mat to get a feel for the texture. She rolls her shoulders and tries to loosen up her neck.
[18:01] Stereo Nacht: Mr. And Mrs. Melnik, good evening!
[18:02] Sky Melnik: Evening!
[18:02] Stereo Nacht: Good evening Miss Writer, Miss Anatra!
[18:02] Bookworm Hienrichs sees the growing audience, and groans inwardly.
[18:02] Scottie Melnik: Good evening!
[18:02] Bianca Namori: Evening Melniks, Jimmy, Pippy, and….Hono. -squints-
[18:02] Ceejay Writer: Good evening!
[18:02] Bianca Namori: Hello Ceejay! Hello Gabrielle.
[18:02] Scottie Melnik: Good evening, Bianca.
[18:02] Junie Ginsburg feels her heart pounding in her chest and hadn’t anticipated feeling this nervous.
[18:02] Gabrielle Anatra nods
[18:02] Bianca Namori: Osgoode!!!!
[18:03] Jimmy Branagh walks over and whispers a few pointers to Miss Book.
[18:03] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Good evening darling.
[18:03] Bianca Namori: You sneaky @#%&!!!
[18:03] Bookworm Hienrichs looks sharply upward at Mr. Underby, frowning.
[18:03] Satu Moreau: Hello hello!
[18:03] Bookworm Hienrichs turns her attention back to Jimmy.
[18:03] Stereo Nacht: Good evneing Mr. Berada!
[18:03] Junie Ginsburg squints at the urchin whispering to Ms. Book
[18:03] Ceejay WriterCeejay Writer growls at her boots.
[18:03] Satu Moreau: Good evening, Ms. Nacht!
[18:03] Bianca Namori: Thank you so much for your help darling. -craddles his arm lovingly and grins down at Book-
[18:04] Bookworm Hienrichs growls, possibly also at Ceejay’s boots, but more probably at some other thought.
[18:04] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach frowns
[18:04] Mr Underby nods, then turns his attention on the women in the ring.
[18:04] Borris Stormcrow takes a large drink of vodka from a flask he pulls from his pocket and tosses it to the small boy on the side of the ring “Spread the fun little one”
[18:04] Bianca Namori: blows a kiss to Ceejay. “I heard your match is a man vs machine sort of thing.”
[18:04] Jimmy Branagh: Oh, thenks much sir!
[18:05] Ceejay Writer winks and nods… nervously.
[18:05] Jimmy Branagh takes a big slog, and tosses the bottle back.
[18:05] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach leans down to whisper briefly to Fraulein Nacht
[18:05] Borris Stormcrow laughs as the boy and then tosses the flask over to Miss Writer
[18:05] Junie Ginsburg closes her eyes and continues to roll her shoulders and twist her neck
[18:05] Ceejay Writer catches it.. very adeptly.
[18:06] Bookworm Hienrichs rubs her face nervously.
[18:06] Jimmy Branagh: Hoy Miss Ceejay
[18:06] Stereo Nacht listens intently to her boss, hands reaching out for her tools of trade
[18:06] Ceejay Writer: Hoy Jimmy me boy!
[18:06] Jimmy Branagh: It’s good stuff!
[18:06] Rusty Bones: ‘Llo!
[18:06] Bianca Namori: Hey Rusty!
[18:06] Ceejay Writer agrees.
[18:06] Bianca Namori: You meathead….
[18:07] Junie Ginsburg shakes her arms and hands loosely to get the blood flowing
[18:07] Rusty Bones: Hah! You really think I’d miss this?
[18:07] Borris Stormcrow: Borris only drinks the best vodka, but do not be greedy with it, pass around!
[18:07] Bookworm Hienrichs pointedly takes a drink of water from the mug by her corner.
[18:07] Jimmy Branagh: Hoy everyone ‘oo came in.
[18:07] Bianca Namori: If you end up drunk in my arena, you end up sober in the canals…..
[18:08] Borris Stormcrow: I suggest women in ring prepare, we are to begin in just a moment
[18:08] Bianca Namori: Go ahead and stand ladies.
[18:08] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Guten Abend, Fraulein.
[18:08] Bianca Namori: grins.
[18:08] Ceejay Writer twists her fingers together nervously.
[18:08] Stereo Nacht: Good evening Miss Lynn!
[18:08] Bianca Namori: Oh and feel free to cheer…..
[18:08] Sky Melnik remembers and old phrase and yells it out towards the ladies in the ring, “qui audet adipiscitur – She who dares, wins!”
[18:09] Scottie Melnik: Good luck,m Junie!
[18:09] Junie Ginsburg smiles at Sky and Scotties voices
[18:09] Lynn Mimistrobell: Hello everyone.
[18:09] Jimmy Branagh waves
[18:09] Ceejay Writer smiles over at Lynn.
[18:09] Bookworm Hienrichs looks from the assembled audience to Ms. Ginsburg, feeling butterflies in her stomach.
[18:10] Bianca Namori: waves to Lynn and her friend.
[18:10] Junie Ginsburg tries not to let her tension show
[18:10] Lynn Mimistrobell waves shyly over at Ceejay.
[18:10] Borris Stormcrow: I welcome all who have come out this eve to watch a great match of boxing. Tonight we have two women who will compete against each other. In White shirt is Miss Junie Ginsburg, and in black is Miss Bookworm Hienrichs. Let us have applause for two boxers this evening!
[18:10] Bookworm Hienrichs steps forward as her introduction ends, obviously looking like she really doesn’t want to be here.
[18:10] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach applauds
[18:10] Ceejay WriterCeejay Writer applauds!
[18:10] Stereo Nacht: `*.¸.*´ APPLAUSE `*.¸.*´APPLAUSE `*.¸.*´
[18:10] Junie Ginsburg purses her lips, glancing at the crowd and then Book. Considering what lay ahead of her, she thinks and rethinks her strategic options.
[18:10] Bianca Namori: wolf whistes.
[18:10] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby)Mr Underby claps politely
[18:11] Sky Melnik applauds and gives Juan a nod as he enters.
[18:11] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach nods at the Steelhead arrival.
[18:11] Jimmy Branagh: Go faw th’ ribs Miss Book!
[18:11] Borris Stormcrow: Before we being it is to be announced that under stairs is a set of trading cards that can be purchased at random, it is goal to collect entire series, pictures of these cards are on back wall for viewing.
[18:11] Lynn Mimistrobell: Oh!! Helklo Baron!!
[18:11] Lynn Mimistrobell waves.
[18:12] Borris Stormcrow: Now to rules of this eve, ladies please take to chair in corner.
[18:12] Bianca Namori: (It’s a right click pay vendor.)
[18:12] Bianca Namori: (Though Book rigged it to get Edwards card, so who knows how it works now. :P)
[18:12] Bookworm Hienrichs takes a deep breath, and sighs it out, a look of determination coming on her face.
[18:13] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra)Gabrielle Anatra snickers
[18:13] Lynn Mimistrobell notices everyone is in darks and whites except her.
[18:13] Junie Ginsburg tries to ignore the voices in the room and focus on Borris.
[18:13] Bianca Namori: looks down at Miss Writer wondering what cards she got.
[18:13] Borris Stormcrow: Let there be no contact to legs, this is boxing not kicking. It is also to be known that there is to be no pulling of hair, that is also not boxing. When ring sounds come from corner and beging to box, and when bell sounds again, please return to corner. Is all rules to be understood?
[18:13] Ceejay Writer shuffles her cards, nibbles her lip, and buys a few more.
[18:13] Stereo Nacht smiles at her friend who hasn’t given up hopes of sun yet! ;-)
[18:14] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
[18:14] Junie Ginsburg nods curtly to Borris
[18:14] Sky Melnik raises her eyebrows at the rules
[18:14] Borris Stormcrow: Then let Borris leave ring, and luck to both, a good match to each of you.
