Elaine perched on the very end of the bar, one leg crossed casually over the other as she chatted with the owner of the bar, curious eyes travelling across the crowd to make sure that they weren't being eavesdropped on. Then came a quick, almost discreet trade of a paper bag for some cash. Elaine quickly thumbed through the stack to ensure it was the proper amount before parting ways with Deirdre. She took a seat and ordered a bourbon on the rocks. Thank god for shady bars and business deals.

This seemed like a good place for some butterbeer on a hot day. Naturally, he's still new to his surroundings, albeit much more confident than last summer, so he's not aware of bar reputation. One look does tell him they're probably cheap. Immediately, he spots Elaine, the back of her head being hard to miss. Drew saunters over, attempting to quietly sneak up behind her. "You must really like upscale places, huh," he whispers teasingly into her ear, reffering sarcastically to the place where he'd met her.

She lifted her crystal glass with haphazard fingers that lazily clung to the surface. Just as she was taking a drink, a familiar voice was filling her ear. The heat caused her to shiver discreetly before tossing him a glance over her shoulder with a look of amusement. "Drewbear," she greeted teasingly and used her brown eyes to gesture to the free spot beside her. "Well, this happens to be one of my favorite upscale places; they serve drinks. Want one?"

He grimaces briefly at the nickname. It's cute, but he likes to think he is more manly than cute. Drew grabs the seat, taking an almost model-esque walk around it and sitting down. He sighs relaxedly. "Why else would I walk in a place like this- besides seeing you, of course." Drew waves down a bartender, placing his order. "How's your summer been, Elaine?"

Elaine grinned momentarily, the dim light of the bar failing to reveal the broken look beyond the surface and the dark circles under her eyes. "Unsavory," she admitted with a gruffer tone before knocking back her entire drink. She beckoned with her hand for a bartender and promptly ordered another. "And whatever he's having," she gestured lazily at Andrew with her thumb. "What about you?"

She seems pretty heavy handed with the liquid. "Wow, either I'm making you thirsty, or you're trying to wash down that unsavoriness with questionable drinks." Drew shrugs in a small enough manner that it looks more like a riple has gone through him. "Decent, I guess. Trying to get in touch with my sister, per usual." Although this time, he might just be more successful. Kress seemed a bit bitchy already but, what can he do? She's family.

Elaine took a smaller drink this time, savoring the taste as she listened to him speak. "I had a shitty summer," she confirmed and then raised a brow. "Why is she trying to avoid you?" she inquired but immediately regretted asking that question in case it was too sensitive or private of a topic. Her brown eyes lowered temporarily to her pocket, a slight twitch in her fingers barely worth considering.

He immediately laughs, because his predicament is slightly amusing. "I'm not sure you'd believe me. It's kind of complicated." Drew's drink arrives on time, allowing him to take a sip before continuing. "I don't actually know her, but she's my half sister. And I guess when I found her she thought I was a scammer? It's been more difficult finding her after she blocked me on facebook." Yep, it sounds as crazy as he thought aloud.

Elaine was slightly curious about his predeciment and the situation definitrly provided her with an alternative distraction so she delved in. "How the hell did you present yourself to her if she actually thought you were a scam?" she inquired with a giggle. "Did you not bring any evidence?" She took another swig of her bourbon. "If you can locate your birth certificate, you could always show her."

He shrugs. "We don't exactly have similar last names. And her dad- OUR dad- was married so, didn't make for good conversation on messenger." Drew sighs, smiling with a little exhaustion crinkling the skin around his eyes. "I only have my mom to swear on it but she's done helping me. I'm independent anyways," he says offhandedly. "She'll come around; she has to. Persistence is key. And then I'll be her favorite brother," he says confidently.

He studies her critically. "No offense but you don't pass as asian enough to be another family member. You'd pass better as a hot date with a passion to see family members united." Drew's smirk is teasing, having understood what she meant but willfully spinning it as if he didn't.

"Nope," she said with extra emphasis on the 'p', allowing the word to pop. "I just have a thing for them," she said with a slight snicker, "apparently." She straightened carefully and looked at him with amused brown eyes. "Did I ever tell you about my old summer fling? Not this summer but the one before."

Drew leans in, interest sparking in him. "I don't think so, I would have remembered. Doubt he was as good looking as me though," he dismisses. "What happened? You realized you could do better, or was it strictly formed for the summer?" Immediately, cool for the summer plays in his head, the quintescential song for summer flings.

Warren had been to a lot of bars, picked up a lot of women. But he's never been here before. It was somewhere Tessa had mentioned, so he decided to check it out. He sat at the counter, half-mindedly ordering a butterbeer as he looked over the other patrons.

Elaine spotted the boy from across the pub, her brown eyes swirling with dark interest as she sneakily slipped behind the counter and snagged the mug from an unsuspecting Rob; a part-time bartender who knew his place and quickly grabbed another. She prepared Warren's butterbeer and used her index finger to slide it across the scarred counter.

"Co-Owner and soon to be Owner," she shot back casually and picked up a surprisingly sharp knife. She pulled a lime from a basket and began to slice it. "Do you not like my pub?" she asked with a dry tone that now lacked humor, her entire charm facade dropping to challenge him.

"You got this covered?" she inquired and left the spot before the poor man could speak. Elaine slid around the counter and snagged the free stool beside Warren, her frame considerably smaller in comparsion.

Another day, another failure at finding a job -- But hey, at least she can still afford drinks. Ella decided to take some times away from Gwen - She found her to be a bit stifling. Besides, Ella felt bad. She was basically slumming it, and it made her feel like dirt. Her face clearly extruded her woeful attitude. She figured she deserved a little bit of pity from herself. As Ella knocked back another shot of Whiskey, she stared at a knife she had on the counter, gently running her fingers over the blade.

He was looking for one of his older orphans that had run away from the orphanage and walked in here to check to see if he could find her. And find her, he did. She was sitting in a corner booth with a boy around her age and they were drinking non-alcoholic drinks. Smiling a bit he took a seat at the bar - just to make sure she made it home safe

Deirdre opened the polished and elegantly engraved mahogany cabinet doors and pulled out a crystal bottle with a deliciously dark liquid that could be presumed as being an old whiskey. She carefully set it down on the counter and snagged a rum glass, not really caring all that much what her drink went into. She took a large swig and savored the bittersweet taste, her green eyes following a couple as they danced their way to the middle of the floor. As she seemed to be in her own little world, the bar began to fill with customers that were swiftly met by bartenders.

The cold wind blew in his face, causing him to shiver just a bit as he stuffed his hands in his jacket to seek some kind of warmth in this cold weather. Why had he chosen to only wear a small jacket instead of his coat? Maybe because it hadn't been that cold when he had started walking, but that changed after he had stayed outside for so long. It went from okay to absolutely freezing with in just 20 minutes. Ah, he really needed to start thinking ahead when it was cold out. With that in mind he looked around for somewhere he'd be able to warm up in, a place with food and drink. So when he saw the Spider's Web he went right in to the dingy place.

In his perspective the bar didn't look awful, just your average looking magical pub besides the fact the people in here seemed even more shady then the one's who hang out at the Hogs head. Well, every place needed something to house those who are less then admirable people and maybe even keep things under the table. Yet none of that really seemed to be his business so he turned his attention away and to that of the bar since he really needed a drink. Something simple and not too strong since he wasn't really in the mood for getting wasted, after all he needed his wits about him later on. Not that he any type of meeting to go to, but more so the fact he wasn't trying to get hammered anymore after all he was getting older and that usually meant more responsibility. Responsibility he'd grasp and try to work with, but for now he didn't want to think about that so he pushed it away from his mind.

He sat down on one of the stools, finally looking around at its decor and well he wouldn't lie and say it didn't look tacky, because it sure and the hell did. Yet tacky didn't always equate to bad, if anything it added a sort of air to it. One that Jason hadn't seen in quite sometime and that wasn't necessarily a bad thing either, but it wasn't something he wanted to be around often. He hoped the drinks didn't taste bad and the food was at least okay, just one thing to turn his day around just a bit. So when he noticed someone behind the counter he spoke up. "Could I get a beer over here?" The bartender of course complied and brought him a beer which he took a drink of and set back down on the counter, before turning to the other people. Just out of curiosity then anything.

Deirdre took idle steps to make her way around the counter of the bar, her long curls bouncing down the length of her exposed back as golden chains slung a patch-work of expensive crystals, her painted nails lifting just as the lights died down. The freckled young woman took her time to get up the steps, a low-glowing spotlight following the glitter of her dress as she made her way onto the middle of the stage and turned to face the bar. She allowed her wand to slide down one of the sleeves of her dress and pressed he tip to her slender throat after whispering the incantation sonous. Her voice grew considerably louder and reached every part her bar.

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen," she murmured softly and allowed a charming smile to play along her glossy lips, "and welcome to the Spider's Web." Ringed fingers brushed mousey-brown curls from her face to reveal a splatter of distinctive freckles and bright green eyes. "Tonight we will be holding a number of performances before opening up the stage to the crowd," she said and offered a wink, which caused a few loose whistles to hover above the crowd. "I'd love to see what hidden talent can be discovered tonight." Her musings were light and flirty and drew attention surprisingly well. "I'm Deirdre, the owner of this shithole and will be behind the counter all night serving drinks~" she finished and allowed the cheers to walk her off stage.

Deirdre slid behind the bar and gently kissed one of the bartender's on the cheek, thanking him for a string of supportive compliments before moving to the next customer. The girl was quick to snag a beer for Jason and slid it gently over the counter toward him. Her eyes peaked with interest as she carefully inclined her head at the man. "Don't tell me this is your first time here?" she asked, making it seem like his lack of presence here was a bad thing. A smirk appeared to accompany the devilish glint in her green eyes.

The Spider's Web was her go-to pub. Not only because her biological cousin co-owned the place, but rather because she knew this was the place most underground activities originated from. She'd been doing business right about now, wrapping it up just in time for when she and Clara had agreed to meet up. Though she'd already made her mind up about telling Clara of The Black Parade, she still didn't want her directly involved with any deals or anything of the sort, so she stood up, her drink in hand, and sauntered towards the bar to wait for her there.

She walked in... knowing a bit about this place, and she was a little nervous but her confidence masked that. She just hoped no one in here would recognize her for her father. She saw Tessa and took the seat next to hers. "Hey," she said with a grin.

She recognizes the look on Clara's face, and feels the ghost of a smile paint her lips. "I'm great," she answers. "It's just water, by the way. With lime. I don't drink, believe it or not," she admits, with a chuckle. "But I can get you something, if you want. The owners and I - let's just say we're... close."

Tessa shifts. It's now that she realizes she has an opening to tell Clara everything. This is quite literally the make or break moment of whatever they have going on. "Not exactly. I'm their boss... in another job. A more important one, I'd say," she says, cryptically.

She knows this is a lot of information to digest, so she just sits, a leg crossed over the other, taking occasional sips of water. "I'm telling you this because I trust you, and..." she trails off, partially wondering if Clara could put all the pieces together.

"Aehh, you'd be surprised," Tessa cuts in, shaking her head. "I started doing things for the former ringleader when I was fourteen," she pauses. What she's to say next is heavy and full of meaning, so she lets her previous statement sink in before she speaks again. "It's a take it or leave it kind of offer. You either walk out of here a Parader, or you're carried out of here obliviated, without myself or this conversation in your memories."

She takes a pause and studies Clara's features. For a moment, she's tempted to say fuck it, take all the time you need, but a swig of water and a breath reminds her that she can't do that. She doesn't know Clara that well. She doesn't know whether she can trust her completely or not with the knowledge she already has. Her future - and the parade's - could be at stake if she allowed Clara to walk out of The Spider's Web knowing Tessa ran a group of organized crime whose members were wanted for a long list of crimes. She couldn't do that. The Parade had to come first; anything else - especially someone else - would be a weakness. Karith had warned her of this. "Let me tell you a story," she says. "Once upon a time, the Parade had a leader with clear eyes. She knew what she wanted and she always fought for it. She was the kind of woman who didn't wait for her knight in shining armor; she forged her own armor and used her own sword to make a path for herself and those that followed her. She was a strong woman - a remarkable one who fought for justice. She wanted to avenge those that had been lost to the waves of time. And she did so. In the process, she brought together a group of unlikely men and women that would fight in her name. They were criminals, maybe, but they had honor. Everything they did - it was for a reason. They fought for what they believed was just, fending for themselves when nobody else would, and forging a path in which the wrongs of others would be righted. But one day - this woman made a decision that altered the course of her and this merry group's fate; she allowed herself to trust someone very special to her. And it was a decision that cost her dearly, for little by little, the group began to fall apart. Disappearances, losses, all of it. You'd have anticipated this woman to look onwards and continue her way, without failing herself and the duty she'd taken upon herself. But no... this special someone she trusted turned out to be a grave mistake on her behalf. She turned weak, and every loss became a tragedy. Suffering from so many tragedies... it breaks people apart, Clara. She lost sight of what was most important - she was no longer able to look at the bigger picture. And I can't afford to do that, Clara," she shakes her head. "The Black Parade is my family, my armor. I cannot afford to make the decision this woman made, and risk the exposure of The Black Parade and its people's identities. They instilled their trust in me to protect them and carry on the mantle. No matter who it is, no matter what connection I may share with them... I cannot let them cloud my judgement, because my priority should always be The Black Parade."
