@rey_king:

"Nathaniel huh?"

Keith picked up the issues he was carrying and organized them into sleeves, laying them neatly behind the counter. They would wait until their new owner returned.

"Be safe!" he yelled after him as he entered the portal.

He wasn't really phased at all by the display, seemed pretty normal at this point.

@ultra_girl_:

"Hey, language," was Keith's only response as he helped Adora back to her feet.

"Also, for a Goofy impersonation I like to start with the 'gawrsh' yeah? His laugh is okay to start out with but the 'gawrsh' is easier,"

To demonstrate he tucked his chin close to his chest so his throat would be at the right angle. Opening the back of his mouth he let out the sound a couple times before getting it absolutely perfect.

"And then you can go into the laugh easier,"

Doing the same motion, losing none of the momentum from the 'gawrsh', Keith accomplished the 'hyo-huh-huh-huh-hooooh' before choking at the last syllable and having to drink some tea.

"Don't ask me how to do the scream he does falling down a cliff, that gets loud quick."

@rey_king:

Keith inspects the coin, flipping it over in his hands a few times before pocketing it.

"Noted," he said in reference to the comment about not collecting too many.

"My name is Keith," he extended his hand for a short shake.

"Reading Corner is on the other side of these shelves, free coffee and hot chocolate. Sandwich shop opens in about an hour if you want something to eat. I'll be around everywhere so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask."

He would wait to see if his guest had anything else at the moment to inquire about before taking his leave.

@rey_king:

Keith heard something he didn't expect and turned his head, curious in pursuing it.

"You're a superhero too?" he was excited now. "How would you like to be part of the Wall?"

He pointed towards a collection of photographs and signatures from various heroes and metahuman figures, such as Superion and Mister Surreal.

"You don't have to pay since you're a hero, but I'd like one of those coins," he laughed, admitting himself to be sort of a kleptomaniac.

"They look really cool."

@rey_king:

The description didn't phase Keith at all. He's heard far worse in his time.

"Yeah that sounds a lot like these comics over here," he pointed further down the line and walked as he talked.

"What you were looking at? The new Green Sentinel comics? Honestly, some of the best from last year. Some people say they fleshed out 'too much' with the whole color spectrum, but eh. It makes a whole lot of sense,"

He got to the 'P' section and instinctively pointed at the latest issue of 'Paragon: Girl of Steel' on the shelf.

"If you want a jumpstart on the storyline they're on now with her, I would suggest looking through the shelves for anything dated from October to now. It's really good, I won't spoil anything for you."

@rey_king:

Keith saw the man put out his cigarette outside, which he appreciated. As he walked in he gave him a friendly wave and "Welcome!".

As time passed however he noticed that the man was book-hunting, more than likely without a name in mind. He emerged from behind the counter and walked over towards him.

"Looking for something specific?" he asked.

@superion_prime:

"Don't do what anymore?" Keith raised an eyebrow.

"Ooooh, you used to be an actor! A regular George Clooney over here!"

He laughed a bit, finding some small comfort in messing around with Superion. There was something to be admired about actors. They could be anything they wanted to be nowadays, made a living off being people they weren't. It was a case-by-case study of how they adjusted to that, however.

Sometimes it just wasn't worth the trouble.

"Yeah, I forgot about that. You use to rule Hollywood huh? Had agents lined out your door for miles," another joke. Keith had no idea how he lived his life until this moment. What it meant to be someone like Superion.

The rate of customers entering and leaving the store seemed to increase for a short burst, but they all just thought Superion was a cosplayer of some kind. Keith could read their ambient thoughts and the heat of initial surprise dulled down into acceptance or curiosity about how he made the costume so true-to-life.

@superion_prime:

"Nope," Keith managed bluntly.

"I don't think half-Celestial children running around would be a good idea,"

He chewed through more of his gas station ice. Talking was fun and it took a significant amount of weight out of the otherwise tense situation. As usual the conversation changed and shifted just as much as the air molecules between the two.

"Feral Nova comics are getting way popular all of a sudden. I think they're gonna start working on a movie or something soon," he shrugs.

"Could be interesting."
