Current It's so reassuring to see guys aren't any different today than they were when I was young. At least the advice I give my daughter is still relevant. >.>

Never mistake me walking away from an argument as me thinking you are right. Just means it wasn't worth the headache anymore.

There are days I wish there was a "RP Set Up" for 1x1's where you could set up your IC, OOC, and Cs Tab the same way in Pm's as you can on the forum.

Gretna Green (Church): Millicent looked confused as Veta spoke. "Again? I don't know about the rest of you but I would do very well never having to do any of this again," she said as she looked around. The last thing she wanted to do was to have to repeat what they all just went through. If she could get through the rest of her life without ever seeing another dark beast that smelled of brimstone. Then Virginia's words made her stop. "What?" was all she could muster to say. She heard and understand the words but the why was probably a better question. Millicent felt she was in the same boat as Meave, she hadn't a clue what was going on.

Ny just chuckled and took a seat. "Oh my, yes, yes, let us see what happens!" he said as he pulled out his journal and started writing again, he wanted to get this all down. Seemed those touched with a bit of madness knew what was going on. William seemed to be readying himself for something. (Note, during switch over, fighting skills can only be used in actual actions, not prepping for action. That takes things like alertness to pick up on things.) Dieter, the ferret not the brother, seemed to be looking around at what was going on but he was fine with Constantin being his care taker for now.

"I do not know if I wish to know what is about to transpire..." Millicent said as she looked at the Circus folk and her dearest friend before glancing towards Maeve and Colette.

Veta smiled over towards Virginia as she took her hand, squeezing it gently in the process. Looking over towards Constantin she still held the simple smile. "Stand guard, as alvays," she said with a soft nod. Turning her head she took Vlads hand as well. Now, what Veta was going for was hoping that bridging together the families that Vlad would be able to show her and Virginia what he had seen. Maybe between that, and other skills they would be able to find out some valuable information and more importantly a destination to go to from here.

Thing was... It didn't work. But it backfired so horribly that while the two women got a glimpse of what Vlad had seen when he attempted this before, so did Constantine and William. The five of them got more than a glance. They felt it, they saw it first hand, and the world around them started to fade away. It was like closing ones eyes and going straight into a dream. They weren't the only ones affected either. Millicent, Colette, Maeve, and Ny didn't see anything that the others were but they did see something. As they looked at each other, they started to fade away. Starting slowly at the hands and the edges of their bodies and quickly worked inwards until they were gone. Millicents eyes widened, she seemed to try to say something but her body was gone before she could utter a word. Ny just kept writing as his body faded away.

For the five, they saw rolling fields of dust and desolation, rivers of darkness, and then a building. A lone standing barren structure. And then they were in it.

At this point, DttS is now fully merged over to T.S. - please make your next posts there. I will be updating the lists shortly. ^_^ Colette, and Maeve have 1 last post in this RP - their fade out. Up to you two to wrap it up. ^^


Year 5: Part 3

L5 (Mess Hall): Joaquin perked up when Thalia came over, standing from his seat and grinning at his sister. "Then let us talk, do not run from me and my friends in camp. Let us sit and converse about the past, the present and a future, my little sister," he said with a cheeky grin.

Shears chuckled. "Always a damn mouth full with this one. Like he's Shakespear in the park or something," Sheers laughed.

Roy just rolled his eyes. "At least he isn't drunk," Roy muttered before shoving a bite of food into his mouth.

Snickering Sheers clapped a few times as he laughed before looking back at Thalia. "Happy to but yeah, like the windbag said. Why not have a seat with us?" he offered before Roy pointed out that some else was already waiving Thalia over to him. "Oh looks like you got a dinner invite, hit me up if you want another. No needing to be waiting a year between cuts anymore."

"Yeah, just make sure your loud when you go into the barber shop, he's usually asleep," Roy quipped.

"Oh she does, well then, off to your friends and we will share a drink and a talk tonight my sweet sister," Joaquin added as he sat back down.

The table with Bass, Maddog, Panama, Volts, Atticus, and Auntie seemed to be done eating and were cleaning up their dishes before rushing them over to bus their trays. Maddog broke off from them and headed over towards where Nikki was sitting with Riley and Amelia. "Checkbook, need the supplies down at the beach now," he said before tapping his watch and walking off. The small group left the Mess Hall together.



Thana Martin


Location: Camp Mexico Beach: L5 (Mess Hall)
Skills: N/A


Thana nodded slightly as she reached over and rested her hand over Ash's, giving him a gentle squeeze. "Hey, he understands. Usually it's a monthly thing to go out there but special times they let others go out there. You got people out there, give ya a chance to say goodbye. Ain't something we get a lot of these days, so when you actually can you need to. He gets that," she said quietly as she leaned her shoulder against his. The people buried in the graveyard weren't people she needed to or even wanted to visit but what she needed for closure and what others needed were two different things. If Ash wanted to go out there, she'd put in the paperwork and talk to her grandfather about it. She'd go with him if he wanted. But they could talk about that more later.

Taking a bite of her food she looked around the room as people were grouping off. "Good to see some of them tryin' to get to know the others," she said motioning with her fork towards the different pairings off of people that had just gotten out of Quarantine. "I think dad made some friends from Quarantine," she added pointing over towards Gunny with Hank and Wayne. "It's going to be the CMB version of King Of The Kill," she chuckled quietly thinking on it. She could imagine them standing at the party tonight holding drinks and every so often just saying 'yup' or 'mmhmm' as they stood in a line watching everything going on. It was a pretty soothing thought to her, it was something normal in this world of chaos.

"Oh, over there, with Edna, that's Rosie," she said pointing towards the heavily tattooed and greased woman. "Her and Mizrahi built the truck I came in on, off your plans." It was a little bit of information. "The younger girl with them is Ada, she runs the distillation division in camp," she added pointing to the brunette woman sitting with Edna and Rosie that wore black coveralls.

Nikki took a bite of her food as she waited to see if Riley and Amelia were going to join her. Chewing slowly as they came over and sat down. She invited them over, and they said... nothing. Okay, that was weird. But hey they joined her. That was something? No not really. Swallowing the bite she had taken her brow lifted when Amelia mumbled something about there being a lot of people. Picking up her glass of water she looked around and shrugged as she took a sip. "Well, it is dinner," she said before taking a sip. Shrugging she set the glass back down and looked at them. "Damn how long has it been since you like sat down with people?" she asked before shoveling another bite in her mouth.

The girl half chewed it before swallowing it down. "Cause this is the part we're supposed to make small talk. You know, hey, how are you, excited about the party tonight type of stuff. Or hey, thanks for asking, loved to join ya. It's easy, really. Try it," she said before shoveling another bite into her mouth and grinning at them. Her cheeks puffing slightly from the size of the bite she took. Nikki tilted her head to the side and crossed her eyes before giggling and swallowing the bite. "That is unless you're like the Seniors table over there and have developed old man telepathy," she said motioning with her fork over towards where Gunny and Wayne and some of the older men were sitting just exchanging glances.

Nikki had just shoved another bite full in her mouth when Maddog came over and told her they needed the stuff down at the beach. "Shit, right, two more bites and I'll be down there," she said as he started to walk off. Swallowing her food she stuck out her tongue towards the man's back before taking another bite and looking back at the girls she was sitting with.


Evelina Lucas


Location: The In-Between: Evelina's Cave
Skills: N/A


Sitting there staring at the fire, the tip of the blade being turned over slowly, Evelina seemed lost in thought. She wasn't thinking on what was happening, or the words that had been spoken. She was thinking on that last life. That last choice made. What had drawn her away in the first place. While Evelina had been stuck in what she was calling the In-Between for hundreds and hundreds of years, for Faith it had actually been less than a week since the last time she saw Evelina. Less time than Evelina had instructed them to just rest and think on the lessons. Evelina had not even been gone twenty-four hours when people had decided, against her instructions, to look for her. For the rest of those she left behind, it had only been two days. Things Evelina didn't know or there perhaps would have been a long speech about people listening. Though now that she felt what she felt, pulling at her, she knew it didn't matter. They all would have wound up here eventually.

Yet, one wasn't. More than one. Why was that? Still it was not something that Evelina was thinking on. She was thinking on that walk in the woods. When the rain came down. The woman who had drawn her there. The talk they had had. It had been a different experience for her than others she had dealt with in the past. This felt like the last time and like the first, woven together. She had to give the woman this, she made a hell of a choice. When given two choices she found a third. That was unexpected. What happened to her? Did she find what she was searching for? Evelina was not sure but she hoped she did. Just to know that perhaps for some there were more than two options changed everything. If it only changed the path of one, it was something new and different. Something she had not had in centuries. She didn't question the how's. Usually when those questions were answered it either took away from something or didn't change anything. Though, she would have to thank another eventually, if she ever saw her again, for the favor granted, if she was able.

Time passed and Evelina was still lost in thought, or at least it seemed that way. Until she finally blinked and looked over towards Faith, giving her a small smile before putting her knife away. "If you were given the choice, would you not have died? Continued living where you were?" she asked as she draped her arms over her knees. "Or would you have still chosen to be what you are? If there had been another way?" Whether or not the question had a purpose was up for debate but it seemed that Evelina was genuinely interested in whether or not Faith would have chosen to go back to a life of fighting Walkers or if she would have still chosen to be caught in-between life and death. And now, caught in-between life and death in a space she called the In-Between.



Kyra Altham


Location: DtB Fade Between
Skills: Alertness


Walking, it was what she did. From one place to another, but usually with no destination in mind. One place did not become another place until she reached it. Only then did she know that was where she was going and even then it wasn't the destination. There was no destination. There never was. At least there hadn't been in a very long time. She couldn't be bothered to think about just how long it had been. It really didn't matter. Kyra had learned a long time ago that most things, in the end, didn't matter. Yet right then she did have a destination, if only a temporary one, and only because they seemed to feel the need for cover. Sure she could have said something to counter their reasoning but why bother. People asked questions, and much of the time argued the answer because it wasn't what they wanted to hear.

Yet she kept a eye out and an ear on her surroundings. One would be foolish not to out there, granted one would be a fool to ever let their guard down. Turning her head slightly at Roberts mentioning of Ash. "Not really," she commented before looking back ahead. She didn't expand on it. The woman didn't seem to possess the gift of gab and if she did, she wasn't feeling like using it right then. Now while Ceasar might want to find out about the lands around him, tracking won't do that. Tracking if for following people or animals, it doesn't tell you about land or flora or fauna more than a person or this animal passed this way. Now, as far as anything being around or passing, no Caesar isn't seeing anything with his tracking. Either nothing had passed by recently or at least nothing that walked. There were no tracks to follow.

At the offering of the tequila, whatever that was, Kyra took the container and unscrewed the top of it. Bringing it to her nose she sniffed. Making a face she held it down to Ash, who in turn sniffed and drew back as well. "Smells like a tavern," she said. Taking the cap she screwed it back on. Turning it over to look at it before holding it back out. "Stay sharp." It was decent advice, probably rather obvious. The walking continued until they got closer to the cliff face. It didn't look like there was anywhere to go into, like a cave or anything. Walking over to the wall face of the cliff, Kyra turned and sat down with her back to the wall. "Best for three days." Ash jogged over to Kyra and sat down next to her panting slightly.
@Rivaan has clearance to put his new character in the CS tab and bring in the new character.

Scotland



Gretna Green (Church): Millicent still wasn't buying what the Grand Duchess was saying. It just didn't make logical sense. That thing died on the altar and beneath the remaining ashes was this person. Like a moth in a cocoon. The look of obvious doubt played on Millicents features as she looked at Elizaveta. Sighing, took another drink of the water before speaking again. "Ludwig died before Church. Brought here to severe soul. Keep from changing. Soul was freed before creature showed." Millicents brows shot up at the explanation. Her head turning and looking back at the door. Thinking back to when she entered here. She had been distracted by Rutherfords face, by seeing Virginia again, by Colette and Maeve showing up; she had completely forgotten others were in the church before her. That she had come across the others just before, that Ludwig was indeed dead, thrown over a horse, before everything started going down the way it was. If face palming had been a thing, she might just have done that right then.

"Apparently I was mistaken. Thank you for the clarification," she said before she walked over to a pew bench and sat herself down, rubbing her throat slightly. At Williams offering she shook her head. "No, I believe I shall be fine in due course," she added as she sat there. Something in her felt a sense of relief knowing that thing hadn't come from one of them. To think to turn into a beast like that, it seemed so much worse than becoming a Soulless.

Now, during all of this we seemed to have lost sight of a little friend. Dieter, the ferret not the brother. Worry not! Animals are smart creatures, especially ferrets. They like to hide and sneak, they are very tricksy they are. Especially Dieter, the ferret not the brother. There was a slight whimper from behind one of the tapestries that hung along the walls and a head poked out. A little nose at first before the rest of him emerged and scurried over towards Constantin, running up his leg and body until he perched on the mans shoulder. Apparently Dieter, the ferret not the brother, was just fine. He had just been hiding until everything calmed down.

Things though were not going to calm down, they were going to in-fact calm up. Elizaveta slowly staggered to her feet. Her eyes focusing on the altar as Ny brushed some of the ash aside. Something popped up from beneath a mound of the ash. At first it was simply a green stem, then leaves started to fold out from it. A single stem kept climbing until a bloom started to form. It was the color of dark lilac, and gradually paled as its bell like blossom opened and a light came from within it. The flower cast off a scent, that of turned up soil and dank caves. "Only to grow in darkness but my how it blossoms," Ny commented to himself as he stepped around watching the flower.

Millicent watched the flower but gripped her dagger. This couldn't be normal. Elizaveta on the other hand watched in wonderment. "Seek life elsewhere." A haunting voice, so chilling and yet familiar to some within the group. Some by chance meeting, some by message before, some just by a feeling. "Seek life elsewhere." Eilizaveta's head tilted to the side. Thinking on the words and then thinking on other words. Vlad's words. "Seek life elsewhere." The flower faded and three petals fell to the ash.

Elizaveta looked at her own hands and then she started to pace. Mumbling under her breath. "Three." Her fingers counting off. "Three." Pointing at the air. "Three." Pointing at Vlad, then Virginia, then herself. "Three." Then to herself again, to Vlad, to Constantin. "Three." Then to groups as they came in. "Three." Her fingers seeming to count off something in her mind. "Three.". Dropping her knees she began to draw an old symbol in the dust and ash. A symbol of a flower that looked almost of flame. Petals, leaves, heart. Looking back over her shoulder. "Three."

Breathing out she nodded. "Again, must again," she said as she glanced towards Vlad, holding her hand out to him. Then her head turned towards Virginia and she held her other hand out towards the woman, hoping against hope she understood. "Three..."

M6 (Tram): Atticus looked over towards Amelia and smiled slightly. "Oh, you don't have to worry about that. Admin sends out new assignments overnight and they are slipped under your doors. So when the morning announcement goes off to wake people up, it'll be there. If for some reason it isn't there, over by the flag pole where we have morning assembly is a bulletin board where all the up to date assignments are posted. And for some reason failing that, just head over to Admin and ask at the front desk. We got you covered," he said as he gathered his things. Remembering something, he walked over to Amelia. "Oh and there is also posted walk times for pets and where, you might want to check it so you know when to avoid the beach because of dogs," he said quietly, remembering she didn't do well around dogs.

L6 (Education Center): Afternoon classes were just getting let out and several of the younger members of the community were filing out and heading over towards General Housing to put their books other things away before dinner. Edna, better known as the Professor stepped outside and walked over to a bench in front of the Education center, taking a seat. The bench wasn't empty, another older woman was sitting there but she looked far different than Edna did. This woman's gray hair was cut very short, she was thicker, more worn. Wearing a tank top and a pair of grease covered jeans with combat boots. She seemed to be covered in tattoo's she must have gotten over thirty years before from the looks of things. "Rosie," Edna said as she sat down.

"Well hey there, kids give you any problems today?" she asked as she took a pocket knife and tried to clean the grease out from under her nails.

"I have come to the conclusion that it does not matter the state of the world, a student will still find a way to harness a spitball," Edna said dryly. Rosie chuckled a bit.

"Ahh that's just kids being kids," Rosie quipped as she wiped some grease her off her knife onto her jeans.

"Your powers of deduction never fail to astound me Rosie," Edna said flatly looking over towards Rosie.

"Yeah, I'm a veritable Einstein."

L5 (Mess Hall): By the time dinner was starting to be served, people were filing in and getting into line. It was set up like a lunch room for schools back before the world went to hell. Rows of tables with fixed stools, some regular chairs at the end. Along one wall the serving was setup. It wasn't too different from the way those from Newnan had been used to, just on a larger scale. On the sneeze guards where papers reminding people that there would be a seafood boil at the beach tonight, so dinner was light. There was a small section of the serving line reserved for those with food allergies with a note on the glass there for people with allergies to speak with Mae.

People broke off into groups, as people tended to do, to eat. The General and Gunny were at the end of one table. People seemed to group off according to where they worked most of the time but there was mixing here and there. There didn't seem to be any assigned seating. Bass, Maddog, Panama, Volts, Atticus, and Auntie were at one table. It seemed like an odd mix and while they had trays with a little food on them, they didn't really seem to be eating. Each of them had papers in their hands they were going over. Looked like sheet music.

The food was simple enough tonight. There was pasta, a sauce, some meatballs it looked like, canned greens, and some bread. Milk was reserved for the younger kids. There was tea and water to drink, some fresh citrus is people wanted. Shelved characters are present. Tatiana and family go sit with the Major, Tatiana speaking to her in Russian. The Major seems a lot more talkative in Russian than she ever was in English. Tatiana seems to be able to just talk freely without worry of tripping over her words. Wayne is over with the General and Gunny. (Pretty sure Hank would settle here as well.) No one talking, just looking and seeming like they are having a conversation. lol

Joaquin was sitting with Roy, Shears, and Atlas. Edna and Rosie were sitting with some others the group hadn't been introduced to yet. Dusty wasn't there, he was still out dropping off those that weren't staying in CMB. Spots had gone with him. Medical was sitting together.



Thana Martin


Location: Camp Mexico Beach: 5N (Street) -> L5 (Mess Hall)
Skills: N/A


Thana found herself smiling as Ash came over, giving the others a wave. When he hugged her, she clung to him. Yeah, the hug felt like it was meant to be a hug for two people that had been apart far longer than they actually had today but then again she wasn't complaining. They had spent so much time apart, it was bound to be that way for a while. Leaning against him she shrugged. "Yeah, well if I followed Docs orders to the letter I'd still be in the hospital," she said with a slight smirk on her lips. It probably wouldn't have been that bad but Thana wasn't one to sit around and do nothing. She had been offered the evening off and then some more days to recover from being outside of the walls so long but she had turned it down. She wanted to work, needed to, she had a debt to pay off for one. For two, now she had a life to build towards.

As Ash leaned down she quirked a brow and then laughed. "Sounds good to me," she chuckled as she climbed on and held on, trying to make sure that Ash didn't accidentally brush her thigh where the pins had been taken out of the day before. Once he was ready she just lay her chin on his shoulder and held on tight. "Yeah, let's get to the mess hall," she said and waited for Ash to take them there. Though once they got to the door, she made him put her down. She could walk a little bit to get some food and sit down.

Tray in hand, after going through the line, Thana looked around. She didn't get much to eat, just enough to hold her over until the boil later. Thana spotted an open spot and headed over, not really looking for a spot with others to sit down with. Sure she could have gone and sat with her family but for now, they were all talking or sitting with others. This would work. Taking a seat, she set her tray down. "If ya want, I can see about talkin' to Grandpapi about lettin' you all visit the graveyard tomorrow," she said quietly to Ash, figuring he would want to go say goodbye to some people if he could.

"Okay, think that covers it," Nikki said before popping her gum. Chewing it she pushed her cart through the Supply building, out from the back and into the main area. Place was pretty empty but it was about dinner time anyways by the time she got things together. Pushing the cart out of the building, she glanced around. She would rather be skateboarding right then but she had her duties, her job. Get it done, get it over with. Then she could have fun, right? Well as everyone was headed for dinner she knew she better as well. She wasn't done yet though, grumbling under her breath she opted to head into the Mess Hall first, pushing the cart in and behind the serving line, into the kitchen.

"Here ya go Cook," she said as she unloaded a few things from the cart. "Gonna grab a bit and then be back for the cart," she added, figuring that she could eat a little bit before heading down to the beach to drop off the rest. Would just be silly to walk to the Mess Hall, drop off, go to the beach, drop off, then come back to mess to eat, and then all the way back down to the beach for the party. No, this was more efficient. Okay, she didn't care about efficiency but if asked that would be how she explained it.

Grabbing a tray, she looked around. New people. Where was that kid she was talking to in Quarantine? She saw him but he didn't look like he wanted to talk. Well that sucked. Okay, who else? Others were still coming in. Thana was with her man it seemed. Leave them alone. Taking a seat she kept looking around as people filed in. Oh, the two bald chicks. Riley and Amelia, yeah that was there names. Waving to them when she spotted them she smiled. "Hey, wanna seat?" she asked them once they were in ear range.

Tartarean Strands: Chapter 1

Date: D-Day of the Collide

PE Fade Between

There, between two trees spaced so far apart or perhaps not, stood the five of them that had come through the portal which Gio had created. Now that portal was gone and they were on the path. Gilbert, moving to check and see what differences between the two choices down the roads might be see no differences. As if they are carbon copies of each other. There is no rise or fall of the land to make one think they are the same ones. Just twins of each other perhaps? Or mirror images? Not one in the same but still appearing as such. Yet, the pull of the Emendators Gilbert feels is both in the same direction, to the left (for simplicity of direction since one cannot know which way is north right now). Sophia, trying to hear or smell, to sense some difference is able to note a smell depending on which direction she faces. To the right is smells far more pure and clean while when facing the right it is more tainted and rotting. It is hard for her to make out as either isn't strong, even with her senses, but she can smell the difference if only just barely.

Now, while the road and such appear empty save for the few items of note and the group, they are not alone. Just off the road, in the fields there. There is a slight haze that builds up just at the edge of the road, a shimmering. It seems there is something moving in the haze, but one cannot be sure what it is as first. Like trying to see something coming towards you in the middle of a thick fog. Slowly it comes more into focus. A figure, a person perhaps? Coming through a portal? No, it doesn't seem like that but as the figure reaches the edge of the road and steps barefooted onto the road itself, the haze fades and the figure becomes clear. A shorter woman, dressed in a simple faded gray gown, belted at the waist. Olive skin and dark hair fall to her shoulders. Her eyes are hidden behind a strip of cloth that wraps around her head. In one hand she carried a set of scales, in the other a scythe that she leans against just slightly.

"You must choose." Her voice was ethereal as she spoke. Pointing her scythe to the right. "Peace." Resting the scythe's end back against the ground she gestured to the left with the scales. "Or Punishment." Her head stayed facing just center as she brought the scales back towards her. "Choose."


DttS Fade Between

Like others, this group was far from being completely alone. There was that wonderful skeleton statue of sorts that was just standing there as perhaps a warning, or just a wonderful decoration. One couldn't tell. Though as the group conversed among itself, there was a slight chuckle. Did the statue just laugh at them? "You be long way from Zerzura sweet child." The voice was thick and deep, and held an distinct accent, that of the Caribbean. The voice came from the statue, didn't it? It sure sounded like it. "Hell, Heaven, a playground." Though, after a moment, it was clear that the voice wasn't coming from the statue of bones but behind it as a puff of smoke trailed up and a hand came to rest on the skeletons shoulder. Slowly emerging a man gave a grin towards the group. He held a cigar in his hand, a top hat on his head, and a snake slithering over his shoulders.

"Gods grant mercy? Gods know no such thing." His grin remained on his painted face as he took a puff from his cigar and ducked under the arm of the skeleton. "I prefer the term bordello, tis more poetic." Righting himself in front of the skeleton he used a tall staff decorated flamboyantly to stand with. "Creeps? Fear is good. Let's you know you're alive." He chuckled as he jumped down from the rocks and bones. "And you are alive." Taking a few steps forward he kept chuckling and ran a thick tongue along his bottom lip. "Which means you are not supposed to be here," he said shaking his head slowly. "Unless of course, you wish to make a trade." There was a mischievous twinkle in the dark mans oddly bright eyes as he spread his arms and bowed slightly.



Evelina Lucas


Location: The In-Between: Evelina's Cave
Skills: N/A


Evelina rested her hand against the side of the cave and glanced towards Faith. "Then get a therapist and deal with your abandonment issues." Sighing she shook her head turned her attention back to the outside of the cave. "They knew as much as I. Save for a feeling I needed to help one like you. So I left. They are as much your family as I am. A mother should not feel guilty for letting family take care of her kids. Nor I for leaving you with other Emendators. So I don't. Family is family." She didn't. She did at one point. She questioned so much. What if she had done this or that. What if she had stayed to talk, what if she hadn't. After so long alone she had figured out one thing. Worrying about yesterday didn't change it. Worrying about tomorrow didn't stop it from coming. Here, now, the basics, that was all that mattered. At least to her anymore.

"I stopped a death, it was worth it." How she had she still was not sure but she stopped trying to figure it out a long time ago. A walk in the rain, she had found one. A choice was given, neither option was taken. It was the last time she had rolled her dice, or at least the last time she had felt the pull to do so.

The brow over her left eye shot up high as Faith mentioned Siduri. "So she has come out of hiding? Figures," she said, sounding a little vexed. "I was beginning to believe she had left sometime ago." Shaking her head a bit she looked back out of the cave once again. "Alone you may have been but they are here now but so far away."

Turning she walked back into the cave and sat down. "You dry, we wait until it will be safer to travel. We have a ferry to catch, I am not swimming the waters." Pulling out her dagger she stoked the fire some with the tip of the blade. "And hope he is feeling generous or you have something in that bag of yours he will take as payment."



Kyra Altham


Location: DtB Fade Between
Skills: Alertness


Kyra tilted her head to the side slightly as Robert spoke, a brow raising in the slightest before glancing around the area. She didn't answer him at first as she surveyed the land. It wasn't until she looked back at him that she spoke. "Walk elsewhere then." Her solution, don't like where you are; walk to where you are not. Nothing was stopping him from leaving, at least not physically, from what she could tell. There was a motion from her hand and a nod to Mali's words. She agreed with her, the woman's bluntness reminded her of her a very long time ago. More words were spoken, questions.

Kyra's eyes closed slowly and she let out a slow breath as if she was annoyed. "Newydd-ddyfodiaid," she muttered under her breath. "Yes." A simple enough answer to food and water. There was. To Riley's question she nodded. "Blights, Soul-Eaters. Around, somewhere." She looked towards Ash, who lifted his head and sniffed the air before resting his head back down. "Not here."

Ash seemed to whimper and she nodded as she blew out another breath, hard and through her lips this time. "Follow me." She sounded like a mother at the end of a long day. Turning she started walking, no particular direction it seemed, just placing one foot in front of the other from where she stood. "Story doesn't interest me." Ash stretched slightly before trotting up next to Kyra, his tail down as he walked. Kyra's hand coming out and resting on his back that stood higher than her waist. Chances were she could ride the wolf if she needed to. "There," she pointed far off in the distance where the rocks seemed to jut out of the ground. It would take sometime to get there.

Scotland



Gretna Green (Church): Elizaveta took a deep breath, it was over, finally. Or at least it appeared to be over for now. For all she knew something else was going to happen or present itself in this haze. Slow long breaths left her lips as she sat there. Her eyes going over towards some of them as they suggested that what they had fought had been Ludwig, she wanted to talk but as she tried, her throat was dry and her mouth parched. It was William that came over and offered her something to deal with that. Taking it, there was a grateful look on her features but the actual gratitude in words didn't comes until after she had taken several long drinks. Lowering the flask she nodded, "Dank you, very much," she was finally able to get out.

Seemed Ny was finding the situation fascinating. "No, was not dear Ludwig. He was already dead, gone. This beast simply got pulled on top of his corpse during the battle," he said. He was sure most of these people were in the church when Veta had performed her ceremony on Ludwig. Though he could understand the confusion. "At least, I don't think it was." He could be wrong.

"No, vas not Ludvig," Veta managed to get out slowly after taking another drink of water.

Millicent looked skeptical. "How do you know?" she asked as she slowly stepped back and took a seat. Her hand rubbing her throat lightly.

"Could feel souls. His was pure, that...thing vas not," Veta stated as she gradually leaned back against the wall and let out a tired breath. "Agree, still hazey, I doubt is over yet."

Ny walked up towards altar and looked around slowly. "This is new, so interesting, sad but interesting," he said as he kept writing. His head going left and right and then right and left. Writing, drawing, flipping through book. "Nothing like it before." Write, flip, turn, stop, look around. "Wasn't there a small animal?" he asked before shrugging. Perhaps he was thinking about something else. Constantine seemed to be vigilant right then but nothing seemed to be sticking out as any more off than it already was, but where was Dieter? The ferret, not the brother.
