To every player or game I've ever Ghosted on; sorry! I'm just super bad at procrastinating on my life obligations.

THE RINGMASTER'S RETURN

GOTHAM

November 17th, 2017 | ? ? ?


"He's out tonight."

A low orange light hummed throughout the room: a vintage zoetrope fitted with a more modern bulb, spinning clowns and ringmasters round and round the walls. It tended to induce minor motion sickness if you lingered long, but if its owner felt nauseous, he didn't show it. If its owner could feel anything, he didn't show it.

A ragged and multi-stained figure had startled and snorted back to life as the low, menacing voice had broken a silence that had lasted several days. He rubbed his eyes free of grime and dirt and coughed heavily as old lungs brought foul air into a diseased chest; the zoetrope spun and spun and spun and the concrete pillars and tarmac floor seemed to twist and warp. Conciousness battled through alcohol and sleep deprivation and drug withdrawal and eventually drifted to the top of the fetid pile this old man's mind had become, and sat up, looking directly at the speaker. He had been sat, crossed-legged and perfectly still, for three days. His suit bore no dust, and his face seemed like gleaming porcelain. He faced a wall, smeared with all manner of violent graffiti and human discharge, but his eyes were staring, never blinking, as if he looked through a window into the city and filth beyond. Joker stood.

"I can smell him. Out there, in his city, protecting the innocent! Avenging those too weak or too young or too dead to do it themselves." There was venom on his voice, and the old man just looked on, silent. Joker had cut his tongue out last time he spoke, and the shriveled thing flopped from his breast pocket. "Even after all these years, he's so...reliable." Joker spat, the mucusy glob glistening in the low gleam. The spinning light of the zoetrope played across his face like hellfire licking at cave walls. He smiled. "Karl, darling...I miss the old game. He's grown old and withered and complacent. Boo-hoo-hoo! If he knew what I did, if he could sniff out all the little worms and bugs like I can...aaah. But that's why he needs me."

Karl the Hobo looked on in silence. Joker tutted, and bent down beside him, deftly taking the tongue from his breast pocket in one hand and sliding a short paring knife out of his sleeve and into the palm of his other. Karl didn't try to scurry away, or avoid what was coming. He knew. He had known for days. Joker gently slid the blade of the knife in between Karl's lips, letting it clack against his teeth as he nudged open the old man's jaw. "You know, Karl the Hobo...I feel like we've really connected on this little winter getaway of ours...and I feel like it might be valuable-" Joker roughly stuffed the tongue back into Karl's mouth, ignoring his gags and moaned protest as he held Karl's jaw fast in his hands - "if I got some feedback from my most trusted confidant." Joker hacked, making a sound that could be mistaken for a dry chuckle, and then, knife still grasped, began to move Karl's mouth for him, Joker's own voice distorted and semi-masked.

"Well gee boss, that sounds swell! I'm sure Bats is missing you too. Even I know Gotham hasn't been the same without you!"

Joker coughed again and then pushed Karl aside, the tongue tumbling out of his mouth and making a wet slap against the ground as Karl gagged and dry-heaved, quiet sobs beginning to emanate from the worn-down old man. Joker stood and hummed quietly, seeming to think something over in brain, tossing ideas around from one side to the other. "Aah, I must admit, I have lost my muse for grand schemes in my twilight years..." Joker rounded on Karl, the paring knife twirling in his left hand as his right reached inside his jacket and returned wielding a razor, "but that doesn't mean i'm completely out of good ideas."

There were no screams; but deep below Wayne Tower, in old abandoned storm drains, terrible laughter echoed.



GOTHAM

B R E A K I N G N E W S O N G C N -
A NIGHTMARE RETURNS?


CITY UNDER THREAT? LEADERS IN DANGER? CITIZENS IN PERIL? MANY FEARS FOUND AFTER CORPSE WITH CRYPTIC MESSAGE LEFT IN CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND.


A CONCERNED PARENT'S REPORT TURNS TO WIDE-SCALE SPECULATION AS BODY OF UNIDENTIFIED VAGRANT FOUND IN A CHILDREN'S PLAYPARK IN RESIDENTIAL AREA NEAR GOTHAM CITY CENTER.

On what was expected by GCPD officers to be a routine call-out to rouse a drunk vagrant, was revealed to be a far more chilling and complex case, as the man was found dead with extensive scarring across his chest and back, seemingly inviting all manner of criminal elements to join a so-called 'Carnivale Macabre', in what many fear to be just the first of what could develop into a series of crimes designed to strike fear into the heart of Gotham's citizens. We go now to Jack Ryder, our man at the scene...
What would be the consensus that the BPRD has been taken as a subsidiary of SHIELD? Is there anyone that is specifically playing anything directly with SHIELD?


Would be useful to know the answer to both of these questions as I'm hoping to have Dani seek out SHIELD as her first 'fuck i need to contain Ghost Rider' port of call, and I'm sure BPRD and Hellboy might be interested in her as well.

Will I catch up to love? I can never tell.
He's feeling the years himself, and doesn't want to depart without showing Gotham who its citizens deserve, playing the final joke on everyone who thought their city - and humanity at large - were worthy of men like Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent.
I know chasing after you is like a fairytale
Joker has been laying low, watching his empire and influence spread and take root throughout Gotham through dazed, bored eyes. He's bored of 'heroes', bored of 'villains', bored of 'good' and 'evil'. Something needs to be done.

C O N C E P T A B S T R A C T:

A younger, gender-flipped Ketch, still coming to grips with her possession, her new abilities, and just what these new circumstances mean for both her own life and the lives of the world at large. She needs help, mentoring, and companionship, but is unsure where to find it, and also has to contend with those that would hunt her down and take the Spirit of Vengeance's un-matchable power for themselves. Easily underestimated, even in her own mind, Dani needs a family, a home, and to stop unwillingly turning into a hellfire-infused skeleton with the power to level major cities.

N O T E S:

  • Dani's current allies include Zarathos, the demon possessing her and an uneasy alliance at that, and that's it. She's unsure where to find the help she needs, but she suspects SHIELD, or any well-known wielders of sorcery, would be more than capable.
  • Dani's current foes include Mephistopheles, the devil with whom she made a bargain in the first place, the agents of Mephistopheles, who seek to capture her so he may harness Ghost Rider as his enforcer, and a strange,
    Templar-like faction of men and women who seek to expell the demon she harbours from their world. She is on the run, and paranoid about all three, unable to trust anyone lest they be double-agents for her enemies.
  • Dani is aware that Zarathos affords her some abilities even when not transformed, but she is unsure as to what they are and how they work. So far, she is only aware of an enhanced physical durability, though not to superhuman levels.
