Tanith Cover REVEALED!



I hope you're all as thrilled with Tom Percival's artwork as I am!

Let's say no more about it!

(Other than to say, perhaps, that this may not be the FINAL artwork, and that maybe the art department need a FEW more days to tweak the colours, and that maybe, possibly, this piece might not even be by the hand of Mr Percival.)

(But let's face it, it's hard to tell the difference, right?)

I've gotten a lot out of my Hapkido class.

It's maybe not "fighting" the way you're thinking of it, and it's nothing like what Ari does, though I have acquired several methods of sending people to the floor.

Some people came to the class with the expectation of kick-punch-kapow, but the teacher doesn't emphasize that at all. It's more about not hurting people, actually. Like, getting out of dangerous situations without hurting that people. Actually, I've come home from that class injured a lot less than I have from dance.

Hello, Fabi! *hugs*

My class... Well. In the higher belts, we use more weapons...

Man

The blues look cool. And have somehow managed to not get black eyes

EMMY IS OFFICIALLY MY OLDEST SISTER!!! I love you Emmy!!! Happy Birthday!!! *Huggles and hisses at anyone who gets near Em*

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

——Somewhere, far beneath the surface of the earth, men dressed in black with green goggles over their eyes were busy excavating a cavern in the rocky black soil. They had been laboring for hours now, with no luck, and many of them were ready to give up. Whispers of “It’s not here.” passed from man to man. Whispers of “He’s crazy.” passed even quicker.
The whispers were silenced when the portal to the surface was opened. A rope dropped down from the patch of shimmering blue light, and the words watched in silence as a gentleman with a black suit, red gloves, and a white stripe in his hair slid down it, landing with a soft *crunch* on the ground below.
He looked around in disgust and horror at the sight of so much dirt. Then he picked his way gingerly across the cavern to the leader of the excavation team, easily distinguished by his sequin-studded work belt.——

Well?

Photo Q. Finish: *shakes head*
Not yet, I’m afraid.

Damn!
*angrily runs a hand through his hair*
*looks around at the idle workers*
Back to work! All of you!

(Hullo, all!)

Emerald Melody said...

Lol since 1989 Adra lol

Yep its my burfday on the 20th which is now 20 mins away.

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*the workers return to their digging*
*some using magic*
*others using shovels*
*still others using spoons*

*clicks fingers*
*a beam of crystalline light shimmers through the portal*
*forms a disk in the air*
*and slides into place behind Oscar*

*he sits on it*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

AHA

Auld woman

I kid *ruffles her hair*

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

(Oh, hurrah!
*applauds*
Happy almost-birthday, Emerald Melody!)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Hello, Anni! If needed, Adra's in her lab.

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

(That's quite alright, Adra. Today, since I have some time on my hands, I intend to do the big reveal of what Oscar's doomsday weapon is, and what it does.
I will, of course, post it on Superfluous later.
The weapon's identity is a bit of a plot point.)

Photo: *sidles up next to Oscar*
If I may ask . . . what do you intend to do with the Keystone?

Oh, I intend to chat it up, maybe take it out to dinner, have a slice of pizza. You know, the norm.

Photo: Huh?

I’M GOING TO USE IT TO BRING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF BLOGLAND, YOU DUNCE.

Photo: Oh . . . sorry.
And the significance of the prisoner in the next tunnel over . . ?
*nods to the wall*

*chuckles*
Oh, him?
Don’t worry. I have some big plans for him.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Ah. I see then)

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*ch-chunk*

Worker: Uh, boss?

Photo: *looks up*
Hmm?

Worker: I think we’ve found it.

*leaps off his disk of light*
Where is it?
Where?
Show me at once!

*rushes over to where the worker is standing*

*there is a metal chest buried in the rock*
*it is old*
*and rusting*
*and alive with a high-pitched humming*
*magical locks and wards and sigils are carved deeply into it*

*rubs hands together*
My, Scorpia certainly has protected you, hasn’t it . . .

*reaches out a hand*
*lays it on the chest*





*a flash of brilliant light illuminates the room*
*and the chest clicks open with a noise like a thousand English gentlemen choking on a piece of celery*

I believe a maniacal laugh is in order, my darling minions!

*the room echoes with maniacally laughter*
*but Oscar laughs loudest of all*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*clings to poster of Jesy*
*hisses at anyone who insults her*

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*kneels*
*in the dirt*

Everyone In The Room: *gasps*

*opens the chest with trembling hands*

Photo: OMG.

Everyone Else: OMG.

Photo: IT’S-

Everyone Else: IT’S-

Photo: . . . a bit rubbish, actually.

—Oscar reaches into the chest and removes a sword from it’s velvet cushion. It is a simple thing, with a flexible steel blade and a golden hilt. It doesn’t even look like it’s meant for proper fighting; it’s plainly a fencing sword. All of the minions look at it with chagrin, even disgust, but Oscar looks at it as if it’s his firstborn child.—

This . . .
Is . . .
. . . perfection.

Photo: *raises an eyebrow*

This, this!
*holds up the sword*
*like it’s Simba*
*and this role-play is the Lion King*
This is the most powerful weapon in the whole of creation!

Photo: I beg your pardon, sir?

*grins like a madman*
Allow me to demonstrate.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EM!!!!!!!!!

Death Rose said...

*Is still a minute early but who the Hell cares?*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Happy birthday Em(: *hugs*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(HAPPY BIRTHDAY)

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*wraps one gloved hand around the hilt*
*and makes a violent slashing movement through the air*
*there is a violent noise like steam whistling from a kettle*

*and Blogland peels apart*

*the minions gasp and fall to their knees*
*through the tear in Blogland, they can see another world*
*a world where everyone wears brown*
*and Redhoods march through the streets*

Photo: *in awe*
It . . . it opens portals between dimensions!

Pshaw! Child’s play. Sir Reingington’s being doing THAT for years. So has that crazy bloke we kicked out of the League.

Photo: Silas Nadir?

Yes, him.
*stands in front of the bloody tear in the universe*
No, no this is child’s play. It’s getting so those who CAN’T open inter dimensional portals are treated with suspicion.
*waves a dismissive hand*
*smirks*
Now the REAL fun begins.

(HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMERALD!
*sounds the trumpets*
*rings the bells*
*bakes the cakes*
*hires the ponies*
*blows up the balloons*
*gets the male strippers*
*looks ashamed of herself*
*frantically cancels the male strippers*
*lights the fireworks*
*sings the songs*
HAPP BIRTHDAY EMERALD!)

I don't need fuss. But thank you x

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

Photo: Sir . . .

SHH!
This is delicate. Like inserting a key into a lock, or a scalpel into a patient’s brain.
*slides the sword into the glowing red edge of the slice in space and time*
Three . . .
Two . . .
ONE!
*violently whips the blade out*

Everyone: *gasps*

*darkness trails from the tip of the blade*
*as Oscar sweeps it through the air*
*as if painting with black paint on an invisible canvas*

*the sword glows white hot*

*drops it angrily*

*the darkness remains hanging in the air*
*even as the other portal seals up*

*and*
*slowly*
*the minions fall to their knees in horror*

*looks into the dark portal*
*turns wealthy white*

That . . . That’s it.
The abyss. The void.
*his legs being to quiver*
The emptiness between worlds.

Death Rose said...

(WAIT!? ANNI WHY WERE YOU ORGANISING MALE STRIPPERS?!))

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(The Ether, then?)

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*slowly approaches the darkness*
The void.
The abyss.
The edge of existence.
The end of the universe.
*sways on the spot*
Oh God.
Oh God I actually did it.

*the cavern flickers*

Photo: *eyes widen*
Oh God, oh God what just happened?

The cavern . . . is flickering . . .
*looks horror-struck*
The abyss . . . the abyss is purging the cavern . . .

Photo: Close it! Close the portal!

A portal hanging in nothing? In void?
I . . .
I don’t . . .

*stoops*
*picks up the blade*

This is not right. This is too strong.

*the cavern flickers again*

If the abyss stays there, pure and undiluted, then all of Blogland will suddenly cease to exist! No memories, no records, nothing. It will just . . . have never been!

Photo: But sir! You can’t!

Damn right I can’t.
*raises the sword*
I won’t open the void. Not all the way.
But I can control it.
*smiles shakily*
With this sword, I can control the abyss.
And make things just . . . never have been.

Photo!
Bring me the prisoner!

*sweeps the sword through the darkness*
*the darkness curls around the blade*
*and is absorbed into it*
*leaving Oscar standing there*
*shaking*
*and clutching the blade as the abyss travels in dark spirals up and down the steel*

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

Photo: He’s . . . he’s in there.
*gestures to a dark tunnel nearby*

Still in the cage?

Photo: Still in the cage.

Well then . . .
*disappears into the dark tunnel*
When I return, Photo, I will have a fine story to tell you indeed. The story of Fabian Varnish.

Photo: I beg your pardon, sir?

*but there comes no reply*
*only a dark chuckling*






*there is a scream from the tunnel*
*it does not last very long*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Anni......?)

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

. . .
. . .
*saunters out of the tunnel*
*looking very pleased with himself*
*the sword over his shoulder*

Tell me, Photo Finish . . .
Do you recall a Fabian Varnish?

Photo: No, sir, I’m afraid I don’t know who that is.

Really?

Photo: Yes, sir, really.

Well, let me enlighten you.

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

*leans casually against the wall*
Fabian Varnish was . . . well . . . let us say that I loathed him quite utterly. He has tortured me physically, emotionally, and mentally, for all of my life. He was a funny sort of Sensitive; the sort that could project feelings as well as take them in. If it weren’t for Fabian Varnish, I would have . . . won . . .
*swallows grimly*
. . . long ago.

Photo: Please, sir, tell me. Who is Fabian Varnish?

*looks up*
*smirks*
Fabian Varnish was Doctor Precocious’s butler.

Photo: What?

The man who accompanied her on all her adventures? The man who was always there to support her and make her tea? The man who was there, tending to her, when I put her in a wheelchair? The man who has stood by here for all these years? The man she is never, ever, seen without?

Photo: . . . No, that doesn’t ring any bells.





*smiles coolly*
You’re right.
And I dare say that anyone who thinks they know anything about Doctor Precocious’s life would say that there was never a man named Fabian Varnish.
That she undertook all those adventures alone.
That he never,
existed,
at all.



*darkness travels up and down the blade of the sword*




That cage is empty, Photo.
It was never full.
The abyss has . . . erased Fabian.
No records.
No memories.
It’s as if he was never
ever
there
at all.




*smiles*





The world is mine, now, Photo Finish.
I wonder what she thinks of me now.
Am I worth her time NOW, I wonder?

*throws back his head*
*laughs*

*She turns the Philosopher's stone around in her hands, noticing the slight red tinge at the heart of the blue stone, still pulsing*

*She goes outside to her stables, and selects her other horse*

*She begins to tack up, pulling her hood over herself*

(There's a certain evil delight in kind-of-sort-of breaking the Fourth wall . . .
*cackles madly*)

Sir Reingington said...

Good morning, afternoon, or evening, Blogland.

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

(Ah, hullo there, Sir Reingington!
Have you read the very important role-play I just finished?)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She glances up, and waves to Sir* *She climbs onto her horse, the purple velvet cloak hanging off of the back of the horse's hide* *She canters over to Sir*

Hello, Sir. How are you this evening?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Helllloooo

Sir Reingington said...

Indeed I did. A shame about Mr. Varnish. He seemed a fair enough chap, from the short time I met him. Unless that was a different butler.

Annika Barnosky / Oscar Neurotic said...

(Hm.
*sits in her swivel chair*
*a little vacantly*
I'm not sure what to do now that I'm done that role-play.
*thinks about it*)

Emerald Melody said...

*Lorcan is sitting at his usual spot at the lake, staring into the water. He had been sitting there for almost 2 hours. He was about to let out a sigh when suddenly a full force kick was administered to his head. He looked up to see how launched the attack.

He gasped as he saw Chase standing over him with closed fists and clenched teeth*

Chase: It was you!!!! You lying bastard! You fucking coward!!! Your essence was found all over her throat!!!

*Chase lets out a roar before jumping onto Lorcan and started swinging punches left and right to his head and chest. Lorcan holds his arms up to protect himself as much as he can as he shouts out*

Sir Reingington said...

I would recommend croquet, but I doubt you enjoy such activities.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

... Right....

*She pulls on the reigns and turns her horse around, walking away*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

How is everyone?(:

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Precocious said...

(Tragically, croquet is generally frowned upon when there's two-and-a-half feet of snow outside.)

Sir Reingington said...

*blinks*

Was that Ms. Dark on a... An equine?

...

Some times I wonder if I even wish to know.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Quite fine, Mara. A little hungry. Yourself?

Sir Reingington said...

Standard, Ms. Charm. I hope that you yourself are well.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Precocious said...

(I'm doing well.
If a little sleepy.)

Maralie Lily Charm said...

I'm good, thanks.

Thought I was being ignored there for a while, haha.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I wouldn't say ignored, but I wasn't completely sure how to answer you. Apologies if it hurt your feelings.

Sir Reingington said...

I apologize as well, Ms. Charm.

If you are truly tired, Ms. Barnosky, and are unoccupied, perhaps you should merely attempt to go to sleep?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She digs her heels into the sides of the horse and gallops into a flat field*

*A girl in a blue cloak, her hood up in the fashion that Adra has, the length going over the back of the horse as well* *She turns as Adra gallops up, and coming to a stop beside her*

*Adra smiles* Hello, Vikta.Victoria. Vikki. Whichever.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Precocious said...

(Hm. Not very subtle, Sir, but a good point nonetheless.
I think I shall take a short nap. Maybe I will come on later. I'm uncertain, as of now.
Goodbye, Sir, Adra, Maralie, and others I may be forgetting.)

Emerald Melody said...

Oh whatever...

No one ever wants to rp with me anymore.

Jeez goodnight.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Nah. It's fine. I get that a lot.

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Melody, I do apologize, but I am unfamiliar with your characters.

Sleep well, Ms. Barnosky and Ms. Melody.

*Victoria smiles* It's Tori, this time. Antonio's chosen Tony. We wanted to try a mirror affect. I already predict that it'll be... Well... Bothersome.

*She laughs* You two were always bothersome. Where are you two staying?

Arcane this time. It's better than Italy.

So it seems...Shall we ride?

*Tori grins, her eyes breifly flashing a shade of red*
I'll race you.

*She takes off at a gallop, Adra chuckles, and goes off behind her, speaking in the old language to the horse*

(I'm sorry Em, you don't have to go. I was just about to go there..)

Death Rose said...

*Pours a bag of Berry Skittles into a bowl. Throws that wrapper away. Takes out a bag of super-sweet jelly beans. Pours them in the bowl as well. Starts eating slowly*

Sir Reingington said...

While I understand you idolize them, Ms. Charm, and for good reason, perhaps you could quell your feelings by reminding yourself that they are just as human as you are.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(I understand that feeling, Mara *hugs* the thrill and the fear...)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Adra begins shouting to her in her separate language* You seem to have lost your touch, Tori! Fourth generations are usually failures!

*Tori swears back at her*
*Adra laughs, pointing to the lake* Karei!

Death Rose said...

*Is about to eat a yellow jelly bean. Stops herself and puts it back in the bowl for later. Takes another pinch of lollies and eats them*

Death Rose said...

*Mutters angrily*

Bye.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Apologies for breifly disappearing- I was cooking.

Ah, goodbye Rose

Good bye, Ms. Rose.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

weLL HOLY FUCKAROO

LITTLE MIX ARE PLAYING A GAME OF TIC TAC TOE WITH MY EMOTIONS IJSUTSSAQANSQXINODHNCWUAQM IPJIAO

*hugs Adra* Yeah...

Sir - tbh, they're not really classified as "normal" anymore.. sometimes i wish that they weren't famous, so they could be living happily without being irritated by screaming fans, without management forcing them to do things, without being torn between the Larry VS Elounor drama... without us.
I want the best for my boys. Even if that means not meeting half of the people i have on the internet.. At least they'd be safe. They'd be happy.
I probably wouldn't be, but who really cares at this point?
I love my boys to the moon and back, but if them being happy means that they would never have been known as One Direction... then I'm alright with that. Granted, I would have never been affected if they weren't created - I'd still be me... I would probably just have a lot more problems and a lot less friends.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Bye Death *hugs*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

That is a great expression of feels. "Tic tac toe with my emotions"

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Yeah, haha. My friend came up with it.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Adra and Tori come to a stop by the lake* *Together, they shrug, and keep going*

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

(*yawn*
Well, that was a lovely nap.)

Sir Reingington said...

I do hope you are well-rested, Ms. Barnosky. Sadly, Ms. Rose and Ms. Melody left while you were napping.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

(Oh . . .
*looks a bit saddened*)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Welcome back, Anni *waves*)

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

(*waves at Adra*)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Tori smiles back to her* It's good to be back.

Greetings, Mr. Castalan.

And hullo, Trip Castalan!)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Adra thinks* So the Philosopher's stone...

*Tori nods* What of it?

...what will it do to me?

*There is a pause from her* It is uncertain. The stone has mane affects, as you know...

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Adra nods* I do..

*Tori turns around and pulls the bottom of Adra's rather long cloak over the back of the horse again* It was in a bunch, sister.

*Adra smirks* Thank you sister.

My pleasure, sister

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*picks himself up*
*brushes off his clothes*

Hang it all . . .

*the echo-stone flares violently*

Can't even use magic.
*shrugs*
Ah, well. Such is life. Or death, rather.

Please, Tori.

☂Thanks! And hi.☂

☂Here's a teeny tiny bit of my TSE chapter, just so you know I'm actually writing it...☂

She hung up and rolled onto her side. She accidentally fell off the table she’d been lying on and landed in somebody’s lap. The person pushed her off their lap immediately and she rolled under the table, banging her head when she tried to sit up.

“Oh, God, what’s going on now?” she snapped, rubbing her eyes.

“We were in the middle of a serious investigation,” a deep voice said, “Before you decided to teleport onto the table and have a nap.”

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*walks back through the wall*
Ah, I love the smell of freshly-brewed coffee.
*sighs wistfully*

*claps his hands together*
*in exactly the same way Precocious does*

One more day, Aubrey.
One more day till she's through with charging the echo-stone.

Hello Ember, Zaf.

*Tori looks at her watch* Adra...

*Adra nods* Go on.

*Tori blows a kiss, then rides off into the trees*

*Adra makes a slow circle around the area, looking for someone to talk to, her face hidden*

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*looks up at the sky thoughtfully*

I don't know if you can hear me . . .
Up there . . .
But you won't win, Khasiis.
Not while I'm dead.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She rides past the bar, wishing to speak to him* *It does not appear anyone is there* *She sighs*

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

*opens the door* Hello?

Sir Reingington said...

I apologize for briefly disappearing, but I had to tune a banjo.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

(Seems reasonable.)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Awesome)

*Adra smiles, turning the horse around, and riding up to the steps* Trip! I thought you were out..

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*strokes his chin*
Hmm . . .

*clicks fingers*
Aubrey! Heel!

*continues down the street*

Aubrey: *raises one eyebrow a centimeter*
*follows him*

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

I am.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Do you... Mind if I come in for a second? I've got to tell you of something...that happened when you were gone.

Sir Reingington said...

*sighs, as he sees Mr. Tarot tell Aubrey to heel*
*seriously considers going in to the real estate industry*

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Come on in. *smiles, holding open the door*

#ChaseForBook9

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*strolls down the street*

Ah, lovely day, isn't it?

Aubrey: *nods*

Hm, yes.
Oh?

*someone rounds the corner up ahead*
*a woman*
*with red hair*
*and tight leather clothes*

Trish: *looking at her phone*
*texting*

Ooh.
*runs a hand through his hair*
This lovely day just got lovelier.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She slides off her horse, tying him up to a post and covering him with a blanket* *She pulls the hood of we cloak down over her head, working on in fastening the knot as she smiles, walking through the door*

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Hey.

Trish: *glances up*
Hey.

. . .
. . .
. . .
[Oh dear, all of my pick-up lines are from the 1500s . . .]

Trish: Are you alright, sir?

Er . . .
*glances at Aubrey*

Aubrey: *is not helpful*

Er . . .
*turns back to Trish*
Do you have a boyfriend?

Trish: *blushes*
That's a bit forward, isn't it?
But . . . yes.
Yes, I suppose I do.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

*pulls up two chairs, sits* So, what's going on?

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Sorry I'm back lol tred

Sir Reingington said...

Welcome back, Ms. Kerias.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Oh.
*wilts a little*
. . . Anyone I know?

Trish: I doubt it. He's the CEO of the Evil League of Evil.
*whips her hair out of her face*
I'm dating Oscar Neurotic.

PARDONEZ MOI?

Trish: I'm dating Oscar Neurotic.

Bitch!
*slaps her in the face*
*his hand goes straight through*
Damn! Aubrey! Slap her!

Aubrey: *slaps her in the face*
*face still completely impassive*

Trish: OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE.

YOU STAY AWAY FROM MY FUTURE NEPHEW-IN-LAW.
*turns his back on her sassily*
Come on, Aubrey, let's go!
*struts off*

☂Guys, for TSE, can I make it so that you can only use your powers for certain amounts of time?☂

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Hmm it appears I have no way to join in. I shall join you in isolation Sir

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She puts her cloak on the back of the chair*

Well... I guess, the only reason I'm saying this is because it was awful t-to keep it to myself any longer..
*She rolls up the sleeve of her arm, then after a deep breath, shows him her arm tentatively, and the dark red words "Child Killer" scarred on her skin*

And...I was wondering if you might have something to fix it. Now that I actually want it gone, it appears that I am unable to.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Go for it, Ember!!

OMG Rose!!)

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

("I will join you in isolation" lol)

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Sir :P)

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*folds his arms*
*sulks*
. . . What a little bitch, with her little bitchy hands all over that boy. Humph.

Aubrey: . . .

*sulks angrily*
*looks as though he should have a dark thundercloud over his head*

. . .

Pigeon: *poops above Tarot*

Poop: *falls through Tarot*

Concrete Below Tarot: *gets pooped on*



*shrugs*
I guess there's ONE advantage to being an echo.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(Heh.)

Sir Reingington said...

It is hardly isolation if you join me, but nevertheless I welcome your company, Ms. Kerias.

Is that healthy, Ms. Rose?

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

*eyes widen momentarily* Um... I might? What is it? curse, scar, marker?

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I'm not completely sure. It appears to be a normal scar, but none of my treatments have worked.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Cursed scar?

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*She nods* It appears that way, then...

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*strolls down the street*
Well.
It's still a lovely day.

*a young woman in a bright red coat walks past*

*stops in his tracks*

Aubrey: . . ?

R-
R-
*watches the woman walk past*
R-

Aubrey: Really, sir, this obsession with women you have really needs to stop.

Red . . .
*images flash in his mind*
Red . . .

*trips*
*falls*
*dizzy*
*panting*
*eyes slide out of focus*

*FLASHBACK*

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Kerias, any theories on Ms. Dark's scar? It could be permanent marker. That substance is the absolute devil to remove.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

(Yay!)

Then it's gonna be an absolute bugger.

#ChaseForBook9

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

It is kinda boring having to watch but its the penalty you get for not being on

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

It isn't permanent marker. It was carved there with a knife, I think I would know

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

(You could just, you know, join in?)

#ChaseForBook9

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

The scar? Huh. I think its something like Sanguine's straight razor. Never heals no matter what

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Oh dear, then...

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*the house is silent*
*quiet*
*serene*
*red curtains drift lazily in the breeze from the open windows*
*red carpets rustle softly as fluffy white mice scamper across the floor*

*outside, the world is ending*

*inside, a tall man with snow-white hair sits in a wing-backed chair*
*his feet up on a footstool*
*and his nose in a book*

*the door opens*
*and a shorter man with red hair steps in*

Doctor Tarot: Did you know the world is ending outside?

Hassle Precocious: The screaming was a give-away, I suppose.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Did the knife have any sygils on it?

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Perhaps... I didn't see- it was too dark. Perhaps it's still- *she pauses*- still there

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Pardon?

Death Rose said...

(I don't know what I just watched... It was another one of those loopy things and I can't see straight. Everything is going weird...))

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

(Oh we dented a table. We sat down on it and then one more person got on it and it dented we all jumped, it was the prop table for drama so the one freshman guy and i freaked cuz if it broke we'd be the only 2 drama kids who knew why...:)

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Hassle: *sighs*
*sets down the book*
Doc . . . we have to stop this.

It . . . it's a bad situation, I know, but-

Hassle: But? But nothing!
*stands up*
*begins to pace*
She's destroying this world and everything in it. Ravaging the country. It has to be stopped, Doc.

*begins to pace beside him*
I can talk to her. Reason with her! There must be a way . . .

Hassle: No!
*looks extremely distressed*
We cannot reason with Khasiis! She will destroy everything that ever did her wrong, including us, for abandoning her with the Lockswitch family instead of raising her ourselves!
We've created a monster, Doctor!

We can't have.
We . . . we can't have! It wasn't our fault that she succumbed to the lure of her true name.

Hassle: If we hadn't left her there, she wouldn't have succumbed.

But . . . but . . .
*runs a hand through his hair*
What are you implying we do?

Hassle: . . .

. . .

Sir Reingington said...

...

Perhaps you should lie down, Ms. Rose.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

(Hey Death.))

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(I love those things, Rose!)


*She stands* It might still be where the fight was... There's a possibility it could still be there.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Well if you can get me the weapon, I can tell you if I have anything for you.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

That I can.*She pauses* I hope.

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Huh. Weird.

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Has . . .

Hassle: We have to.

We can't!

Hassle: People are dying. Cities are burning.

But she's my niece! OUR niece! The last fragment of memories we have left of our sister!
Doesn't that mean anything to you?

Hassle: *pushes him away*
*frantic with panic now*
Don't you get it!?
She's gone!
Our niece is gone!
She is Khasiis now!

I don't believe that. I can't believe that! Part of her is still our beloved niece!

Hassle: And part of her is Khasiis!
I . . . I have to kill her.

No . . .

Hassle: She'll crack the world in half if I don't do something! You know what I am, and what I can do! You know I'm the only one who can separate true name and form, into two separate creations.

Has, no!

Hassle: *half-mad now*
I'll split them apart!
Banish Khasiis to the abyss! The edge between the worlds! The void!

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Ah, hope. The logical man's faith.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

A one saving grace sometimes..

*She pauses again, something she seems to be doing a lot*
*She murmurs* I did miss you, when you were gone, you know..

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

And I missed you, so very very much.

#ChaseForBook9

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Has, you can't do that! The process could kill her!

Hassle: And save the world in the process!

*they stand*
*at either end of the room*
*and stare each other down*
*Hassle half-mad with panic and worry*
*Tarot looking ready to faint with fear and anxiety*

Has. Has, listen to me.
There are three parts to every human. The True Name, the Form, and the Consciousness.
Separating the True Name and the Body is NEVER MEANT TO HAPPEN. Her body will be undamaged, but you'll leave her with an irreparable Consciousness!
She . . .
She . . .
She could forget huge portions of her life.
She could go mad.

Hassle: . . . That is a risk that I will have to take.

I cannot let you take that risk with my niece!

Hassle: Doctor!

Hassle!

Hassle: *begins to tremble violently*
F-F-Fine!
If you won't get out of my way, I'll . . . I'll . . .

You'll what?
Kill me?

Hassle: . . .
. . .
*reaches into his coat*
*pulls out a wicked-looking dagger*

*She nudges his shoulder with hers*
Right then...

*She gets to her feet, wrapping her arm back up* I should go... Look, I guess.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

(I can't capture it this time... Damn. What is it?)

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

*his arms snap to his sides*
*and with a sickening CRACK he grows taller*
*and thinner*
*as a blanket of glittering orange scales roll up his body*
*and his face elongates*
*mutating into the triangular head of a green eyed serpent*

*the massive snake drops to the ground in thick, scaly coils*
*and hisses murderously at Hassle*

Hassle: *lunges*

*strikes*

*they tumble around the room, Hassle caught in several tightening loops of the snake, the snake snapping viciously at Hassle's head*

Hassle: *lashes out with the dagger*
*slicing across Tarot's nose*

*hisses in pain*

Hassle: Don't bother, Doctor.
*gasping*
*his ribcage constricted*
I . . . know your tricks . . .
We grew up together . . .

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief in the Land said...

Aye. I'll come with ya. *gets up*

(Hypnotising thing that makes you unable to move your feet.

Wow...))

Annika Barnosky / Doctor Tarot said...

Hassle: *wrestles out of Tarot's grip*
*grabs him near his head*
*and slams him against the wall*

HISSSSSSAAAKSHHH

Hassle: I HAVE to do this!
I HAVE to!
*almost crying with hysteria*
Th-th-the world will remember me as a hero!



Hassle: *stabs the dagger into Tarot's neck*
*and slices him open throat to tail*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*Should probably tell him not to*
*Doesnt want to*

Alright... *She throws her purple cloak over her shoulders, fastening it and raising the hood. Then, pushes the door open, holding it*
