ROSLYN: You've reached the Love and Luck Podcast.
JASON: Hey, I love you. I'm glad you're finally asleep.
I'm so angry at whoever did this. I swear if I ever find the fuckheads who vandalized us, I'll vandalize their fucking faces. How dare they threaten us like this. How dare they deface our home. Fuck!!
At least they didn't cause any structural damage, and they didn't come inside. I'm guessing our wards were a big part of that. I think we might need to put some more magic into them though, not just keeping harm out but repelling it away, too. I'll try and do some of that tonight before I come to bed.
I love you. I won't let this happen again.
KANE: [Low level anxious] Hey honey. Bruce is here, touching up the scuffs on the facade that we couldn't fix ourselves. I don't know how he heard about this, actually. I didn't call him. Maybe Victor did? I should ask.
Anyway... fuck, I can't wait for every last impression of this graffiti to be gone. It makes me upset just thinking about it... and I'm not alone in that, I think. I can see folks glancing over at the front of the bar with this worried expression. We're all a bit shellshocked. I don't think... I mean, the flyers were one thing, but I don't think we expected this type of thing to literally come to our front door. [Sighs]
Everyone is tense this morning. They're all putting on brave faces, things are going ahead as normal but... I don't know. This is just... it's just scary, I guess. It's one thing to be afraid of the world out there. But, to be afraid that it might come here... [sighs]
I can't really talk much about this, because there's people all around who could hear, but... yeah, thank you for what you did last night. I'll try and put some effort into it too, as well as the more mundane stuff.
I... I was going to make cupcakes again but I just don't think I have it in me, to be honest. I feel like my legs are stuck in mud. [Sighs] I don't know. I'm just... I'm pretty shook up, I guess.
I love you. See you when you get up.
KANE: [Emotional] Helen heard me leave that last voicemail for you, and so she made cupcakes for everyone since I didn't feel up to it. She drew a heart on one of them for me...
Michael is playing board games with the kids to distract them from the facade work. Tom is running some kind impromptu book club with some of the stitch and bitch regulars. Brandon and Victor are helping out Bruce, and Helen is going around clearing tables.
I really... I really love all these people. I mean, I love them all anyway, but it's easy to love people when things are easy. When things are hard, like now, to still have everyone looking after each other and supporting each other... I don't know. It's just... it's very special. I'm glad we did this. I'm very glad to be a part of this.
KANE: [Softly] Hey... bedtime voicemail as requested.
I feel a lot better tonight. This has been really scary but... everyone has been so good and uplifting, that I feel like... even if more bad things happen, we'll still be okay. We'll all look after each other. None of us are alone.
I think... when we began to take people in, when we began to treat Best of Luck Bar like a real sanctuary, not just a place to hang out... I think we forgot that sometimes we need support too. Sometimes we need a cupcake, or a hug, or a break. I began to think like... like we had to look after everyone, and that we somehow had to do that alone.
But... we're not alone. Everyone has been supporting us, and looking out for us, as much as we've been looking out for them. It's become this like, self fulfilling thing. We help people and then when we need help, they help us.
And I mean... today... all of today, all the good parts of today... happened without any magic. It was just us, and each other, all together. That's... [yawns] that's just really, really amazing and positive, you know?
Anyway... I'm going to sleep now. I love you. See you tomorrow.
EILEEN: Hello, my name is Eileen, I got your number off your website. I think I know who vandalized your property. I'll drop by on Thursday to talk to you about it, if that's all right - if not, just give me a call back and we'll organize another time. I'll drop you an email after leaving this message with my details.
[Uncertain, vulnerable] And... your voicemail greeting said you're a safe place, right? That you help people out? Because... I might need to take you up on that, once I tell you what I know.
Anyway... I'll see you Thursday, or will speak to you soon. Thankyou, Bye.
