Ease up sweetheart!
[Eddie grins and then places his fist to his head and bows.]
I’m Eddie, this is my wife, Susannah.
Although, I really did think he was with you… Now I’m worried…
Jake! JAKE! [Eddie walks over to Jake and Alain and puts a hand on Jake’s shoulder.]
Jake we need you to try and touch Roland, just real quick.
[Jake snaps out of the semi-trance he’d been with, trying to touch Flagg and his friends with Alain.]
Touch Roland? You mean he’s missing? [His voice was calm still, but panic flashed in his eyes before they closed again in concentration. A moment later, though, they flutter open again.]
I…. I’m not finding him, Eddie. I felt him before, when we were all introducing each other, and when he wandered off with Susan, but I don’t feel him anywhere.
[Aileen greets Susan with a head shake but does not look directly at her.]
Our dihn is missing. We don’t have enough bullets. Alain and Jake feel something is wrong. Walter is up to something. And we don’t know where we are.
[“And Susan is here.”]
[Jake is unsure of how he feels about Roland’s old friend, and so he responds to the wink with a small smile. When he speaks again, it is half to himself.]
I wish everyone would stop being all gooey over all these old friends being back. I’m glad we have more people on our side—more gunslingers—but Flagg is already way ahead of us. Blaine can take us to him, but only if we can find him first! [He pauses for a moment, thinking.]
Alain, is there a way to combine the touch between the two of us? To look for Flagg?
Alright alright Jake, you might be right.
[Eddie glances back at Susannah, still in shock at her return.]
While you and Alain get all hocus pocus on Flagg I think Cuthbert, Suze and I should look at our armory, or lack of.
We only have three guns between the four of us, plus whatever rizas Jake has left, and I’m not sure Jake’s ruger will be much use against Flagg. Christ, I don’t even know if Roland’s bullets will do anything.
I got this knack for carving [Eddie winks at Jake.] I might be able to carve out another sling shot if you’ve got extra bands Bert.
What about you Aileen?
[Jake hands his bag of ‘Rizas off to Susannah, and with a quick glance around, she can see Eddie’s point—there are maybe five plates still in Jake’s bag, and the Ruger is nowhere to be seen. One of Roland’s sandalwood revolvers is resting on Eddie’s hip, the other on the gunslinger’s own. As for the newcomers, it isn’t immediately evident whether they’re armed or not. Susannah herself is not, and she’d rather that not be the case.
As she moves nimbly across the dry ground on her hands, Detta Walker creeps into her voice, an occurrence as instinct-driven as hackles rising on a dog. After all, Susannah Dean is a gunslinger, and trust does not come without proof. It is better to be safe than sorry.]
Alright, folks, les’ see what you got. If you’re packin’ iron, I wan’ see it. We doan know what were up against, but we gotta know what we have to use agains’ it, anyway. Anything you have that you would use in a fight, cough up. If we in this together, we in it all the way.
Another female gunslinger! Such good news.
Long days and pleasant nights to you.
Don’t we have enough weapons? This might be a problem.
I happen to have one nickel-plated revolver and no bullets.
Where are we exactly? There might be a village of some kind around here somewhere. Or things are even more different than they used to be?

This kind of spam will not happen often.
I posted all of this stuff mostly related to Aileen because she may be a new character to some of you. Since I’m in the RP, it’s relevant that you understand the character and see how she interacts with the ka-tet (feelings for Roland, silly discussions with Bert, friendly with Alain)
You may also have noticed she’s not Susan’s biggest fan… This may get her to be bitter sometimes.

That awkward moment when you and Roland’s former lover have look-alike avatars.
