A smile twiches at the corner of Francois mouth.

"Oh, well", he says, "I'm in. Keep the bond from being too strong to any one of us anyway."

Francois pulls out a rapier and points it towards the glass bowl. He runs his wrist down the blade, and the blood runs the length of the sword into the bowl.

As the last of the blood drips in, Francois licks the blade clean.

François is free to depart to LC #1 or remain to watch the remainder of these proceedings. In the interests of furthering the narrative, I'll reveal now that there will be nothing of interest to see at that cemetery. Sarah will call up Rebekka and tell her that you've found Crusher, and that you're on your way to Elysium, although she refers to Rebekka as "my Prince" throughout the brief conversation.

Cool. I was going to move slowly once I got to the cemetary, but only look around for a half hour or so.

Seeing Francois do this Jocelin is impressed. And thinks he is probably teaching her a subtle lesson to, a proper Brujah doesn't let trifling concerns over mere antitank weaponry seperate her from a stylish ride, the proper Brujah is more than willing to spill blood for the clans good, whoever's blood is being spilled, and is not going to take public transit to avoid it

She nods to Francois, then steps over to the bowl herself, drawing and striking her arm to mimic his feat (preferably in a smooth stylish blur of speed . . . if you can roll for me, Katana art 16, Quickdraw 17, Courage 13 being relevant I think)

Between injuries and the still early nightime, Jack declines to contribute blood. (16 is not a good roll for a miser to be generous.)

Yeah, I got your rolls from last night, and we'll use the first one for Jack's Miserliness.

Leo?

Leo frowns. He moves to the bowl, bites himself on the wrist, and pushes blood down his arm with his other hand to hurry the process. Silently he licks his wound closed, and waits for Crusher to consume the blood before they leave.

OK, Jocelin can do her flourish before bleeding into the bowl no problem. When you all make your donations, Sarah interposes herself between Crusher and the bowl, and also conjures up a faint breeze that leaves Crusher upwind of the vitae. When she sees that Jack keeps to himself, she empties a bit more of her blood into the bowl.

"Prince's orders," she says when she's finished, and then she gestures to have everyone clear away from the bowl. Once you're all several paces from the bowl, she turns to Crusher and signals for him to have at it before she darts away to a similar radius as everyone else. Crusher sort of smirks at her as the breeze dies down, but wastes no time in taking the bowl and emptying its contents in huge gulps. Once he's finished, the bowl disappears.

"Thanks," he says, taking in all those who contributed. He looks a bit weirded out when he meets Sarah's eyes. "Can we go see this mystery Prince now?" Sarah says that the Prince is expecting them at the Storyville Jazz Hall at 11 pm. (It's a bit after 10 right now.)

==========================

I think we can call this thread a wrap. We'll say that you can arrange to send some animals over to Lafayette #1 off-screen. I want to tote up everyone's fatigue/blood usage, and then I'll start the next thread.
