[ooc:
The withdrawl symptoms hit their peak, so Charlie seeks out Bartleby for help. He asks for a hit to help with the pain: Bartleby tells him not to be ridiculous and goes inside Charlie's mind, which is not a fun place to be. They're both relieved when he withdraws, taking the source of the pain with him. Charlie is sick on the floor and tells Bartleby what other symptoms they should expect, and Bartleby says he'd better stay with him. At first Charlie refuses--he won't be sleeping--but Bartleby says it's all right and then loans him a sweatshirt to replace the one he's been wearing for the last few days. Even so Charlie can't get warm so Bartleby gets into bed with him. Charlie observes he smells like fresh bread. Bartleby asks about Charlie's band (the details of which were canonized later, so . . .), and then about the addiction. Charlie tells his story, then explains how music begins with the heartbeat. Bartleby explains a little more about why he's at Milliways and says he's not a nice person. Charlie disagrees, but is selfishly glad for whatever screwups Bartleby made that brought him here. Charlie says he'll never be great, and Bartleby says he's one of the shining ones. Charlie wonders about their purposes here and finds himself hitting mildy on Bartleby, who doesn't notice and talks about his Fool instead. Bartleby says he's the jealous type but isn't sure if his Fool loves him or not. They decide to try and sleep with hopes for good dreams.

The withdrawls continue. Bar makes Charlie eat soup.

Gavroche sidles over, but since Charlie has nothing worth stealing they end up talking instead. Charlie is interested in meeting Meg once he learns she's a dancer, buys Gavroche soup. (and napkins--it's messy), and tries to explain rock'n'roll. Gavroche is the first dead person he's met at Milliways.

Meg joins the conversation. Charlie remarks that dancers have lovely limbs. They talk about mutal friends: namely Penny and her turtle, Raph. Charlie is particuarly interested in Raph's anger issues. Meg is not impressed by his profession and renames his music as stones and bread (which cracks the mun up so she has used it frequently since.) Charlie tries to demonstrate how rock'n'roll makes him feel but has trouble staying upright. Meg recommends he see a healer, and Gavroche advises him on who to avoid.

Penny and Charlie talk about his withdrawl symptoms but Charlie insists he's okay. Penny teases him about his fondness for tea. Charlie asks her if she knows where to find Bernard, whom he's been told to talk to about a job. He wonders what the wages are to convince angels and gods to work at Milliways. Penny asks about her song and pulls Charlie to the piano, but Charlie spots Bernard and asks for a kiss for luck before going to ask him for a job. He gets it, at least for a trial period, and when he goes back to Penny he says she's his good luck charm, and plays her a song. They talk about all the different time periods at Milliways, and Penny wants to know about groupies in the future. Charlie writes his mention in her book to come: "Knew Charlie. Lovely chap." Penny offers him more than a sentence: Charlie refuses because he's been too ill. She tells him why she became a groupie and he realizes she's the first groupie he's had real conversations with. He plays "Penny Lane" for her to comfort her.

[ooc:
Withdrawls begin to set in. Bartleby offers handmade tea instead of bar-made. Charlie denies anything's wrong and asks his question: Bartleby says, "Angel, technically." He almost asks Bartleby if he knows where to score but stops himself, though Bartleby is not fooled, because, "Dude. Angel." Charlie retorts he's a bassist, and reacts badly when Bartleby attempts to probe his mind. He admits to the addiction, and Bartleby says he's tried it too. He skims over an explanation of his past. Charlie admits to wanting to quit but it's hard, and Bartleby offers to help, telling him to find him when the pain is more than he can handle. Charlie accepts gratefully.

Penny also observes that he looks like hell. He shows her the blisters on his fingers from playing the guitar too much after not playing at all for so long. He asks for her help in quitting heroin: she is sympathetic. He apologizies to her on behalf of everyone who's also chosen the drugs. She offers to do what she can when he's hurting.

[ooc:
Charlie gets dinner from Dionysius and is happy to meet his first god. Dionysius points out the muse of music and Charlie wonders where he's seen her before.

Mainly because she's a pretty woman and alone [and because the muns know each other :D], Charlie introduces himself to Moiraine. He tells her of the plane crash and how he ended up at Milliways. She explains being Bound and why a person may be Bound to the bar. He asks her if she's an angel, god or demon and bets she's an angel. Moiraine is amused, serenely, and demonstrates the powers of saidar. Charlie is gobsmacked [because the the mun likes saying gobsmacked] and Moiraine wonders if he felt something more. He didn't but wants to see more, but still is mildly freaked out at the demonstration of her powers and goes out to the lake to straighten out his head.

On the advice of Moiraine and Dionysus Charlie introduces himself to Tere, the muse of music. She explains what the muses are and he wonders if he's heard her sing in his dreams. As he leaves she gives him a bass guitar.

In conversation with Penny Charlie learns of Faustus and Gavroche and is puzzled at all the kids running around. Penny tells him about the tab board and gives him a tour, and then they leave to go for a walk around the lake.]

[ooc:
Charlie arrives and after watching the others a bit, orders a scotch and a cheese sandwich. The arrival of both impress him. Penny can tell he's in a band. She explains Milliways and disabuses his notion that "the end of the universe" means they're all dead. Charlie is rather fascinated by the notion of angels, gods and demons (a question he will ask quite a few people when he meets them). He then gets a room and promises Penny a song at some point. They say goodnight and Charlie goes to his room to sleep.]
