The fact there are people going to the new Mean Girls movie and not knowing it's a musical is mind boggling.

Bio

Well now that I got the customary "post once" requirement out of the way....

HELLO

Welcome to my safe space. Well, about as safe as one space can be, I guess. If you are here looking for something, I am very sorry to disappoint you, but I made fresh cookies! Come sit a spell.

I guess I'll do some more in-depth stuff about myself. My name is Nick and I am 32 years old living in Illinois. I am a therapist and clinical responder (which is a fancy way of saying I go out on police calls to provide mental health assistance). Been doing therapy for a few years now and I absolutely love it!

I am a gay, cisgender man. I came out last year in January (smack dab in the middle of a pandemic. Timing was always my downfall). There is still much I am learning, but I am proud and happy to be who I really am and not have to hide it anymore!

I am an avid gamer, especially roleplaying games (cue surprised and shock noises). I also enjoy writing and reading, especially mysteries. I am not new to roleplay, I promise. I have been doing it for years now in different formats. I am experienced, even if it doesn't seem like it.

I use humor as a coping mechanism for sure, but I also like laughing and enjoying myself. Life can be pretty sad and upsetting for the most part and I don't want to add to it.

Whew! That got deep!

I will be poking my nose around in spaces and hoping to jump headfirst into this. Some interests I have in terms of roleplay settings include superheroes, DnD, science fiction/fantasy, mysteries, thrillers, horror stuffs, apocolypse, and espionage. And I am a fan of most things pop culture. If you have any suggestions or possible roleplays you think I would love, please let me know.

Otherwise, stick around! This is gonna get wild!

Perry smiled at Neil, who was trying to make her feel better. It didn't stop the anxiety from creeping up, both at her inability to due much and the looming time clock on the asteroid blowing up, but it was still appreciated. Before she could respond, Pietro sped back in and warning them about the side-effects of being super-speeded. Perry attempted to brace herself, but once back in the hangar, she leaned over and almost lost it.

Taking some deep breaths, she made her way into the Blackbird. It would have to hold them all. What choice did they have? And Lance announced they were still missing three people. Perry bit her lip, wondering if she could do anything. She hated feeling like this, but it was up to Pietro to gather Mary and Jaclyn and then they had to get off of this rock. And travel through space back to Earth.

Prudence could feel her words had impacted Runa. Whether or not the woman believed her remained unknown. But even the young child had done her part and prevented Jack from doing any harm to Runa again. Prudence chuckled lightly. "A useful skill child. Keep him in check." It wasn't a command so much as it was a hope that she would continue to aid Runa on this side.

Jack was correct though, a choice had to be made.

"I know not what goes on in your mind and heart Runa, so I cannot make that choice for you. I merely suggest that what you believe is the only action you can take may not be the correct one because someone else told you. Someone else that, perhaps, relies on you to see it through. If they need you, you have power and control. If you decide not to help or to destroy the veil, let it be your own choice. Whatever action you take, I will aid."

With the meeting being done, Verity met Trudy in the hall as she handed her a stack of documents. Truly, Trudy was the main character. "Literally would die without you Trudes. I'll get it squared away in my office. And thanks for the car fix." Her mind flashed back to the accident and the man on the bike. Probably some schmo not worth the headache she continued to nurse.

After bidding Trudy farewell, Verity made it inside her office, tossing the stacks of paper on her desk. She'll sign them in a minute. She took a seat and closed her eyes. If it wasn't one thing it was another lately. Her phone chimed. She glanced and saw his name with a knife emoji next to it. What the hell did he want?

She ignored it and started signing the contracts. He probably wanted money. It was usually about money. Well he wouldn't get another dime off of her.

They descended into what looked like a maze. As if it wasn't bad enough, they would now have to find their way through. Leah seemed to feel the same way. As they walked, Sabine was about to offer her two cents before she felt a presence. Too late to notice it, Sabine was grabbed and held in feral claws as a beast gripped her. She struggled but could not break through.

Leah jumped into action quickly but did not manage to get her out. Sabine eyed her new enemy, gauging it. Though it was a werewolf, that did not mean it couldn't be manipulated. There was a mind in there. So Sabine closed her eyes and gritted through the pain as she entered the beast's mind palace.

when she opened her eyes, she saw red. It was like a blood miasma was covering the beast's thoughts. She could sense violence. Anger. She saw familiar faces pass by. Herself. Leah. April. Danni. Dorian. Each one came through to her, but each one was ripped. Violently blood-soaked. This was what the beast wanted. Everything she held dear, destroyed.

She got to work. She didn't want to put it down unless she had to. She attempted to replace the memories with positive ones. She got through a few of them, but it would take more effort.

So she put all she could into it. Memories of her loved ones. Leah, April, and herself becoming girlfriends. Danni's smile during the school fair. Dorian and her patching things up. The dance. The crowning. All hope-filled memories.

And it worked. She could feel the tension leave Marrok and his mind cleared. Gone was the red-fueled haze. But Marrok didn't seem to know what to do. It began to...cry? Sabine couldn't imagine a werewolf crying, but here it was. And then it hugged her. "Umm....there, there?" she said, patting Marrok's back.

"It's fine now Leah, don't hurt him. He's on our side now." Safe in the arms of their new friend, she tried to speak to him. "I hope you enjoy peace. Think you can help us shut this whole thing down, once and for all, and help more people?"

Prudence let out a light titter of a laugh. Soon, it crescendoed into a full uproar. Truly this was remarkable. Is this what the future held for the people in her time? Jack did what Prudence thought he would and attacked Runa. But the old woman was more capable than perhaps Prudence gave her credit for as she manifested herself back again amongst the living.

It was evident Runa could not be swayed to their side, but that didn't leave the idiots she was paired with to plead with her anyway. And to use a child to do so? "Do you all truly not understand? She is not choosing herself over you, she is choosing a higher power. You will not sway her mind by pleading like beggars at her heel. Grovel if you must, but I will not kneel for anyone."

She walked over to Runa. "I think I understand, O wise crone. You have seen, or rather witnessed, death immaculate. I would offer pity if I felt pity would be received so all I can muster is understanding. My family was killed because we were different. Something as simple as flesh paved the road for monsters to take all I held dear. So I will not plead like these fools with us. All I will say is that I, too, have a master whom I owe a great deal. And it is upon this new mantle that I realize that I need him no longer. I can serve a master in myself. So do this for yourself. I will stand by you."

Before Verity could tell the sorry sacks that unless they could pull a magical unicorn that grants wishes from nowhere that she didn't need anything else, they were interrupted. She felt a small migraine coming on. She wasn't naive, she heard about the illnesses sweeping the country. She paid little attention though because it was probably some new wave of sickness that was little more than a flu but whiny babies needed something to latch on to to justify not working and staying home to watch Netflix and eat ice cream while the powerhouses of the world went on even if they had the sniffles.

"Fine. Send them home. But tell them that when they get back into the office I expect all paperwork done end of day in duplicate. Also send their families some flowers. Charge it to the company account, I'll sign off on it." She sighed and returned back to the meeting. "No, there is nothing else. I expect to see changes soon. Now if anyone needs me, I have a show to prepare for."

With that, she strolled out of the room, grabbing a piece of cheese to munch on to tide her over.

Prudence rolled her eyes at Maz's insistence on them all working together. She recited the words. The veil was repaired, albeit not completely. She felt it was due to her lack of committal, but what was there to commit? "I have said the words you shared. I need not do more and do not touch be again without my approval. I am committed to restoring the veil, but that is where our alliance ends."

Jack had tried his best, but it appeared that she was not alone in her refusal. Runa did not speak the words nor did she wish to take part. Prudence felt some respect. Though Runa was old. She had lived a life. What did she care of existence ended?

Prudence chuckled as everyone began pleading with Runa. "She is her own person and can make choices for herself. If we cannot do it without her we have no right to call ourselves Sorcerer Supremes." Prudence recited the words again, though she still felt unsure. She looked at Runa. Perhaps the woman was right to not take part.

No this was something more. Prudence felt it back when she had promised herself to her Lord. And felt better when she had made a choice for herself despite him.

Prudence's vigor was renewed. Damn the others, she would see this veil restored for herself and herself alone. Then she would deal with Runa and whatever source existed that needed her.

Perry nodded as Pietro grabbed Guin and sped off. Thank goddess they had a speedster with them. Perry slowed down, though she still kept heading towards the hangar, with Cortez's sister in tow. She glanced at the others, wondering their thoughts. Worried? Probably. They had fewer minutes now and Pietro could only do so much. Hopefully the others were on their way.

Neil's choice to keep Cortez's sister on the station was worrisome, though given all she had done, Perry could hardly blame Neil. "Hard not to feel worthless in this scenario. Don't need my powers to read the emotions in the room and my spirits can only do so much." She looked at her three spirit companions, all of them were worried, she could tell. Their connection, if she died, would remain in space.

Should she release them? She hoped Pietro got here soon.

Sabine was beside herself as Nimue played it off as if she were not in the wrong. Who in their right mind asked her to create a haunted house? The woman was clearly batshit. Sabine would go to the higher-ups once this was all done. According to Nimue, there was nothing she could do. If they wanted this monstrosity destroyed, they would need to do it themselves.

Leah took charge and went in. Sabine glanced at Ser Nemo, a look of disappointment on her face. she liked him, or she thought she did. "That's the thing about heroes. They don't choose when to be one. Cowards are the ones that see danger and do nothing about it." She let her venomous words hang there before following Leah in.

Once inside, she made sure to keep Leah in her sights. The house would surely try to keep them apart. She listened as Leah went off on the whole situation. Sabine understood her rage. She felt it too.

"We might not be fighting the same shadows this time around. We're together, so we may fight both of ours, or something much worse. I vote the latter, especially if the house senses what we are trying to do. Either way, we need to end this now so the ones still stuck in here can get out."

Sabine readied herself. Sword in hand, mind focused on the task.

Verity walked in like she owned the room. Which she did. She glared at the person who had dared implied she was late. If looks could freeze someone in place, hers did. "I will remind you and everyone else in the room who the person is that called for this meeting. Anyone know? Show of hands?" She raised her own hand. "Oh that's right, it was me! So I decide when we start and if I am late."

She walked over and saw they had gotten catering. She could not be bothered at the moment. She took a seat at the head of the table and set her things down. Once everyone had their own seat she stood back up. "Why did I call you here? While you enjoy your salads and cheeses we have investors breathing down our necks, wondering why our numbers are in flux. And what should I tell them? That I have a team of incompetent baboons who don't know their head from their ass? Or do I assure them we are rock solid? Tell me, because my phone rings day and night and I have so many emails I may as well send them all condolences. What flowers do you send someone when they call you a ho who should be sucking dick and on a pole? Carnations?" She let the rhetorical question hang there, seeing the uncomfortable looks the others, mainly men, were giving her.

"Yeah, when I find out who used those colorful terms, they will be nothing but liquid on the street below this building, so get your affairs in order. I have a show to get ready for. Numbers go up or firings get handed out and I am not sacrificing the lowly janitors or secretaries here because, unlike you sorry lot, they actually get their jobs done. Fix it. Now!"
