Kol looks between his knees and over his cum-splattered chest. “Heh, Morning Nixxy. What’s up?” He brushes some of his fur, trying to wipe up the worst of the mess. “If you’re looking to fool around, we’re gonna need a minute...”

”Yes, Nixxy sees! You were very noisy!” Her dark eyes go wide with realization. ”Oh! You probably could not hear! There was a knock at the door! A man in a hat came knocking.”

I do wonder what Kol's uncle thinks of al the bonds he's made with all these people both magical and not.

I also wonder if Uncle's been in/still gets involved in similar sexual escapades.

Might as well say hi, talk things out and figure out what's going on on this ship in general.

Kol sits up and runs his hand through his hair. “A man in a hat? What kind of hat?”

”A hat with a shield on it!” She smirks.

Kol and Caleb share a glance, and the mouse asks, “A shield? Sounds official. Did he say what he wanted?”

”Oh, no. Nixxy could not turn him away! Nixxy let him wait in the sitting room. Told the man in the hat: Kol would see him shortly.” She beams proudly. Having conveyed her message, she retracts her long neck from the doorway and heads downstairs.

Realization looms out of the post-coital haze like a ship in the fog. Kol and Caleb scramble out of bed and attempt to make themselves presentable.

A few too many minutes later, they hurry downstairs and find themselves in front of the man in a hat.

The fire ward pinned to his chest in the form of a badg.e identifies him as the station 3 fire chief of the Moot Point Fire Brigade.

Kol’s mind, running on adrenaline, translates Fennel’s W’s. “Nice to meet you Chief Raleigh. Kol Bardo. What can I do for you?” Kol extends a handshake, trying to pretend he wasn’t having extremely noisy sex a moment ago.

“Uh, nice to meet you, Mr. Bardo.” The fire chief shakes his hand, also pretending he wasn’t privy to the sounds of extremely noisy sex. “I didn’t mean to intrude, but your kelpie friend was extremely insistent... Ah- your partners, are they?-“ He leaves the rest of the question unsaid, but his eyes dart towards the upstairs bedroom meaningfully.

“Oh, no.” Kol waves a hand and blushes, “Uh, Gabe is on a trip: spirit guide related business. And Casey is up at the Sender Academy today, assisting the archivists.” He sits down opposite chief Raleigh, trying to ignore an oozing sensation under his tail. “Is there something I can help with?”

“Well, I’ll cut right to it. We got a report this morning about fire related damage in certain parts of the city: scorched flagstones, a partially melted public bench, a city fountain cracked and boiled dry. None of it is major, but we realize we’re dealing with a magic user or magical being capable of powerful fire spells. We were hoping you’d be able to help us find them and keep them from setting the town ablaze.
>>
No. 956036 ID: 3ed3c3

Sure, we'll help.
Odds are it's either some out-of-towner getting a little too rowdy, or Miki and Raithe are having a "hot date."
>>
No. 956045 ID: b1b4f3

Sure we can take a look into it.
Hmm, if we need to put out some fires out there we could use Fennel's help. Ask if she wants to come along. Should we bring a bucket or...
Alternatively we could get Miki and Raithe, who are both immune to fire.
Nixxy might want to come along just because everybody's going out and it's fun. Or maybe she'll be carrying Fennel.

>>956045
Fennel can join so long as she uses her magic sparingly and only as directed. Excessive water usage can be just as damaging to the city as the fire.

Miki would be a good pick as well. Caleb and Nixy can come along if they desire as well.

So this blazestone thing has left the fire department shorthanded, I assume, thus they need you to create an impromptu fire force of your group and figure out and deal with what's causing these fires.

Sure, do it. Kick fire ass, get paid and probably laid.

Sounds like it could’ve been someone that’s not aware of the fact that they’re causing the damage.

>scorched flagstones
Could be from simply walking around.

>a partially melted public bench
>a city fountain cracked and boiled dry
Both of these could be from sitting on them.

>>956059
If that’s true, then Miki somehow managed to convince Raithe to go near a fountain. Or Raithe was being brave for Miki and convinced himself to go near the fountain.
>>
No. 956117 ID: a9af05

If someone's body is made out of fire, then they'd be accidentally causing all this damage.

And since Raithe is the only person that we know of that has a body made of fire, he's currently a suspect in being responsible for all of the accidental fire damage.

Kol and Caleb share a glance, both sharing the same thought. Caleb speaks first, “Not Miki or Raithe, right?”

“Couldn’t be.” Kol agrees. “They’re both extremely careful about their abilities.”

“Right. Spite me, Raithe rarely even touches the ground: the poor boy’s too worried he’ll start a blaze.”

“They run that bakery, right? Oh, we get their jam filled croissants sometimes...” Chief Raleigh gets a faraway look on his face before snapping out of his pastry-filled reverie. “Er, where was I?”

“Miki and Raithe?”

“Oh, right. Couldn’t hurt to check on them. We’re keeping our eyes out for whoever did this, but if you get a lead, do let us know.”
>>
No. 956141 ID: 3ed3c3

>>956140
Does Raithe have any visiting family? Does he have any family we should know about?
Now, I don't want to racially profile, but starting this fire-related investigation with the guy made of fire is an understandable first step.
It's much more likely that some elemental from out of town is going around and being careless.
>>
No. 956142 ID: 48ce40

Hmm. There's no report of people being hurt, so it's not being used with hostile intent. And no report of any witnesses? Fire magic isn't exactly subtle. Which also suggests it's either not accidental or the user has gotten very, very lucky.

Could someone have gained fire powers and is trying to test them out without anyone knowing? The things they've used them on are distinctly non-flammable. The fountain even suggests maybe a conscious decision to have water on hand. Or maybe some magic artifact that produces fire?
>>
No. 956144 ID: 10c408

Surely there'd be witnesses, right? If no one has seen anything then..

Ask Bardo if he happens to know if there's
been any large and unfortunately tragic blazes in the city for the last few decades.

I'm thinking ghost. Can't be seen, still causing damage wherever they go"

“Chief, if you’re shorthanded dealing with these fires: what if Nixxy and Fennel lend you a hand?” Kol suggests.

“Uh- really?”

“Yeah, Nixxy’s fantastic at tracking people by scent and Fennel is perfect for fighting fires. Meanwhile Caleb and I can check on the bakery and make sure everything’s alright.”

”What if Kol needs Nixxy’s help?”

“I’ve still got your pearl. I’ll call you if we need help, okay? You two are gonna do great.”

Chief Raleigh stares at the elemental and the fey, his cheek all twisted up in thought. “I... suppose that makes sense. Never thought to work with a kelpie and an elemental but, spite me, you sound helpful.” He nods decisively, “All right, we’ll give it a shot.”

Nixxy bounces in place, and Fennel glubs happily. ”Yes! Fun! We help the man-in-the-hat, Raliegh!”

Before they turn to go, Kol reminds the fey, “I know this might seem fun, but remember: people’s lives could be at stake. And don’t let Fennel fall behind; remember to give her a hand if she needs some help. Okay?”

Nixxy gives Kol a smooch on the cheek. ”No worry, Kol. Nixxy is helping today! You call Nixxy if you need a help too.” She scoops up Fennel and deposits the elemental on her shoulders like a soggy feather boa.

“Fen, make sure Nixxy stays on task. Are you going to be alright out there?”

One of the elemental’s eyespots squishes and stretches in an otherworldly wink. “Wewwl be fine, Kowl. Oh, if we do good do you think wewwl get hats?”

“Heh, if this works out, hats are the least of the thanks you’ll get.” The firefighter stands to leave. “Nice to meet you both, let us know if you learn anything. I’m certain whoever did this won’t be too hard to find.” Chief Raleigh nods to Kol and Caleb and heads out, followed by the new volunteer firefighters.

“Do ya think they’ll be alright?” Caleb confides.

“Mmm, probably. You’d be surprised by how well they’ve adjusted, especially when they’re together. Nixxy’s pretty good at helping Fennel around and describing stuff she has trouble seeing. And Fen’s good at helping Nixxy stay focused and is pretty level headed.”

“Huh, who woulda thought.” The selkie smiles. “You think he heard...?”

Yeah, he heard, along with the neighbors and half the block; We were far from quiet. Though, he didn't seem to mind one way or the other hearing you two. But why are you wondering if he did hear, Caleb?

Anyway, before Kol heads out he ought to get something to either plug himself up or clean himself out, otherwise he's gonna leave a oozy mess in his drawers. That and change his underwear too.

“Y-yep.” Kol nods.

“Yeah I’d say he heard.” Caleb mentions conversationally. “I, uh, mention it because: I couldn’t help but notice you were at half mast there, the whole time.”

Kol swallows, unable to deny the statement but unwilling to verify it. He remains seated, his knees together.

“In fact, I’d be willing to bet you like being heard, Kol.” The selkie’s brows dance up and down suggestively.

The mouse takes a breath and tries to calm his body. “M-maybe we should get cleaned up first... then...” He bites his lip.

“Good idea.” Caleb leans over and mutters into Kol’s blushing ear, “While we're in there, how about I make sure everybody can hear you.”

“F-fuuck.” Kol breathes.

“That’s the idea.”

“You were just about to teach me how to sing in the shower...” Kol’s smirk goes slackjawed as he feels himself being spread open. He braces his elbows against the wall as Caleb leans into him.

Fully hilted, the selkie growls in his ear, “We have the place to ourselves. Don’t you hold back, now.” He then proceeds to fuck the mouse into the tile with all his strength.

A cacophony of slaps and squeaks echo off of the tile as music to the selkie’s ears. Caleb closes his eyes, savoring the sound of Kol gasping and moaning.

“Gah! Fu-h! Ah- ah! AH! OH! Fuc- GAH!”

Caleb chuckles, “Heheheh. You like that?”

“Y- Yus! AH!”

He slams forward again. “Listen to you: you can barely even speak. Huh-“ His hips slap against the mouse’s ass. “Getting caught like that really turned you on. You’re right on edge aren’t you?”

“Fu-ucck! Ca-leb! Uh! Uh!” Needy whines rise in tone.

Caleb feels the mouse clenching around him as the last pre orgasmic moments slip away. “Let me hear it then! Cum for me, mousey!” His hips swing into a blur as he jack-hammers Kol’s ass.

“AHH-AH-HAH AAAAAAAA-ck!” Kol crashes over the edge. His voice rises in a shriek of pleasure that ends in a gasp as his lungs run empty. Unable to truly speak, he manages to half- breathe, half squeak as his body jerks helplessly in the fey’s grip. Warm spatters of cum flick against the tile walls as his cock flails freely: jetting untouched as the mouse feels himself spent.

Caleb hangs on tight as Kol writhes beneath him. He drives himself into the tight mouse, his thrusts getting harder and faster. The kelpie leans forward, seeking his own satisfaction now that his partner has cum.

Kol feels himself bounced back and forth between the wall and Caleb’s cock, his whole body limp and wobbly under the constant pounding. A groan warns him of the imminent end as the hot shaft starts to pulse within him.

The mouse is suddenly whirled around, his back planted against the tile. He looks up between his waterlogged dreads at the selkie. Caleb braces Kol’s head with one massive hand, his other wrapped around his dripping cock.

“As much as I’d like to give your ass another load; can’t have your tail leaking all day, now can we?” Caleb grits his teeth, trying to hold back the tide. “Now open up, will ya?”

Kol dutifully opens his mouth, presenting a pink length of tongue. Caleb pumps his hand up and down the shaft a few frantic times, opening the floodgates for the mouse.

“Gahhhhh! Thaaat’s it! Yahhhh...”

He tries his best to keep the tip aimed at the open mouth, shakily painting Kol’s whiskers with a pearl lacework. He bucks hungrily into his palm, feeling the last few trickles spatter forth.

The pair sag, panting heavily in the humid shower. Kol swallows as much of the cum as he can collect, running his tongue over his muzzle to wipe up the last few drops before they harden. Hot water batters down on him as his sore muscles complain.

Caleb sits down in the narrow tub next to him. “Hah- you alright?”

Kol nods, “Gonna... be... sore...”

“Yeah.” Caleb nods. “That was good. Sea and salt that was... hah- oh man that was good. I had no idea you were so into that. Getting caught like that really does it for ya, doesn’t it?”

“Hah- yeah.” The mouse blushes. “I- I guess so.”

The selkie laughs, clapping a huge hand on his shoulder. “Hah! You’re so fucking cute when you’re flustered. You know that?” He leans over, giving the mouse a quick kiss on the cheek. “Come on, lets get you cleaned up...”

Tick the checkbox on the post, fill in the reason you're reporting the post in the "reason" text field, then press the "report" button.

"How's the legs?" Caleb asks. "You holding up alright?"

Kol blushes, his tail feeling well tenderized. "Uh, might be better to hire a ride."

A quick scrub later and the pair hustle out the door. Kol locks up the house and flags down a carriage for hire. The driver pulls over and opens the door for them. “Where am I taking you?”

“You know Hearthfire Bakery?”

“Miki’s place? Sure thing.” The mana powered drive charm lurches slightly and the vehicle takes off over the cobbles streets.

Miki looks up as the shop bell jingles, “Kol! Caleb!” The chinchilla welcomes them. She turns to the back of the shop and calls, “Raithe! Come say Hi! We haven’t seen you in a while. What can I get you?”

Kol basks in the warmth of the bakery for a moment, soaking up the ambient heat from Raithe’s stove. “Actually, we were just coming by to see if everything is alright.” He waves as Raithe peeks his head around the corner.

“Well, yeah! I guess? Business is good, things are going well. Why? What’s up?” Miki blinks, slight concern wrinkling her fluffy brow.

“We just got a visit from the fire department, asking if we knew anyone with fire magic. Apparently they’re dealing with some damage around town that they think is magical in nature. We wanted to check up.”

“Great Fates!” Miki squeaks, “Nothing major, I hope! What kind of damage?”

“He mentioned some scorched flagstones, a melted bench. Sounds like it happened last night.”

“Woah. I mean, we were in bed pretty early, and our mornings are pretty much all baking prep. It couldn’t have been us. Do you have any ideas, Raithe?”

The elemental scratches behind a head spike and shrugs, “Not a clue. I know a few fire elementals but none of them live around here.”

“Hey Miki,” Caleb points a massive hand, “What’s with all the lanterns? They don’t look like your usual oil lanterns.”

“Oh those,” Miki smiles, “they’re for our wedding. It’s a thing Raithe wanted to do called a ‘truefire’. We’ve been reaching out to some of his elemental friends to send us bits of flame. The idea is: when you combine them all, it makes a special kind of fire that burns hotter in the presence of honesty.”

Raithe chuckles. “Its a very old form of magic. It used to be more for...” he waves a claw idly, “legal matters and trials. But its also used to tell vows to one another for marriage.”

Well maybe it's someone new in town, doesn't know how to behave? If you find them and do them a favor maybe they can give you two a new color.

Are the individual flames special in any way? just in the offchance one has a property that could have allowed it to catch nearby and cause the issues in town

>Lie-Detecting Lantern
This is totes going to be essential in the near future because plot reasons.

And may include accidentally birthing a fire elemental because sex-themed universe.

>Wedding
Suggest they give out free baked goods for one day (while supplies last).

It's cheaper than the wedding planners.

Caleb raises a finger, “Uh, these elemental friends you mentioned: would they be, perchance, coming here to the city?”

“What? Noooo.” Raithe flaps his wrist dismissively. “They all live hundreds of miles away. They wouldn’t-“ He pauses. His head swivels rapidly from lantern to lantern as he does a mental tally. “Oh, brimstone...”

“What? What is it honey?” Miki asks.

“Uh, we never got a flame from Cauldera, did we?” He asks.

“No, I don’t think so? Who’s Cauldera?”

“Uh...” His wings sag, “She’s kind of... she was, uh... we kind of dated for a while...”

If they were enraged and actively trying to destroy moot point, I think there'd be more destruction other than a park bench, some flag stones and a fountain.

That said.... Walk and talk. We can gossip about this particular story while trying to track down the fire chief.

Ah, an old flame. You think they’ve come to Moot Point?

Get Miki's reaction.

Ask about the lack of a flame shard. Will it cause leaks in the spell? Can you get more from others? Is there any other magic you could do with these shards? Actually, could you use the arson fires as a replacement if they're magical in nature?

Yes we get that its an old flame but it can be hard seeing someone you loved again even after moving on. They could just trying to organize their feelings, considering the damage was a bit more controlled.

“Oh?” Miki cocks an eyebrow, “I don’t think you ever mentioned her. I don’t suppose she’s the jealous type?”

“I mean...” he shrugs, “Not when I knew her. It was just one of those things that we tried, but didn’t work out. She is a bit, uh... unpredictable though.”

“Suddenly, I feel a lot better that I’m fireproof...” The baker fiddles with her ring. The flame ward burns from within, clasped in the hands of a golden dragon.

“Ooookay, so what should we do?” Kol asks.

“I- I don’t know. I don’t think she’s used to, you know...” Raithe shrugs and waves a hand, indicating the shop and city, “...mortal things. Where we’re from, things are a lot more... fireproof.”

“Oh fuckin’ lichfire...” Caleb mutters. “We better find her quick. You two wanna come with?”

Miki runs her fingers through her dense fur, mentally debating. She sighs, walks over to the door and flips the sign from open to closed, tucking a piece of paper in place to apologize. “I hate to miss out on today’s orders, but this kind of is our mess. Raithe, are you gonna be okay coming with us?”

“I- yeah. Sorry everyone, I had no idea she might, you know, show up.” He sighs. “I hope she’ll listen to us.”

"To stop burning stuff by accident? I don't think she'll need much talking about that. But she will need talking to about other stuff, I imagine. We should probably head to the scene; no matter how well you know her, she's a stranger in (to her) a strange land, so we'll need to do some good ol' fashioned detective work."

Judging from the dialogue, she's been trying to get a grip on the idea that raithe is getting married to someone else.

....And hasn't yet realized that Moot point isn't flame retardant. (at least, the first few times anyway

“We’re going to need to track her down. Chief Raleigh mentioned a fountain being damaged: maybe he meant the one over by Minerva’s Temple of Reflection. We’ll start there.” Kol leads the way for the others. He winces slightly as his hindquarters complain after a full morning of strenuous activity. “Really wish Gabe were here right about now...”

“Ah—CHOO!”

Gabe wrenches himself up, trying not to disrupt the delicate flow of magic. His nose twitches irritatingly under the protective mask. In front of him a thin stream of quicksilver dribbles out of his portal, ever so slowly filling the ancient basin.

“Careful!”
