Desolation Publication Date Changed!

Hello children.

February already, is it? Dear lord, where does the time go?

Into the void, that's where. Into the void with all the PLANS we make and the PROMISES and the GOOD INTENTIONS and the LIES... Ahem.

I'm busy. I'm working away. On what? Different things. Some will see the light of day. Some will not.  That's what happens. I've pretty much started the third and final Demon Road book, which is good, since my deadline is HILARIOUSLY close and I have an awful lot of work to do. But there are so many distractions! So many different projects to work on!

But I must focus. I must.

So, right now, my publishers are busy nailing down UK and Ireland tour dates for Desolation. First thing I have to tell you is that the release date has been changed, pushing it back a week to April 7th. Not that much of a big deal, and there are a load of external factors involved in the decision. It was explained to me but I zoned out. It's something to do with... something. Anyway, whatever, it's out on the 7th, although it will be available to buy a few days earlier at certain locations on my tour.

So, roughly, from April 3rd to the 7th, I'll be in Oxford, Manchester (don't know if it'll be available to buy early here, will check), Liverpool, Birmingham and London. Irish dates include Dublin and Kilkenny so far, from the 8th to the 10th.

As soon as these things become solid, I'll post them.

We're doing our best to have something cool happen in London, so keep your eyes peeled, ladies and germs. Awesomeness awaits. And possibly nightmares. Which is awesome in itself.

I'm pretty sure it's an identification number of some sort.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

((Here!))
*walks deeper into the lab*
Hello? Anyone home?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((...

Ok this is the third page in a row now. Not funny, bro.

(Don't question why I'm referring to the blog as "bro") ))

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*blinks, looking up at Fabi*
But for what? And for who to read? We need to find them but we can't track them!
*is pacing at the average human run speed, possibly literally wearing down the floor*
They have to be somewhere.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Who's there?

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*calls out*
Me
*walks towards the voice*

Elemental_Geek (Aurelius Ryan Egg) said...

(I am)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*looks at dugglyn and keeps pacing*
That depends, looking for Adra?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Another piece of silver appears on Fabi's head, and it is possible that, Jai be willing, that Sil will experience a slight headache*

Elemental_Geek (Aurelius Ryan Egg) said...

*pops into existence*

*egg looks to the sky, a pleasant look on his face*

Thanks for popping me back into existance, I guess?

*he has a snarky look on his face so I pop him out of existance

*I pop him back in with potatoes for palms*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Who's me?

[Doesn't recognize Dugglyn]

I'm sorry, have we met before?

Elemental_Geek (Aurelius Ryan Egg) said...

((WATCHING LAST EPISODE OF GRAVITY FALLS))

(LET THE FEELS BEGIN)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Oh, hi Sil. What are you doing here? Who's Adra?
*looks at Fabi*
I don't think we have, I'm Dugglyn Carzainia. And you are...?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

We could try analyzing the little scanning chip at the bottom. If we know what's supposed to scan it, I can probably build one.

[Fabi still doesn't notice her hair turning silver]

[her ear's turning silver as well]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*shares the information with Adra, and takes a slow breath, sighing* *he'll have to have a new strategy for the next time they're fed* *in the meantime, however, he will feed Adra little bits from the tray until she can't eat any more*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

I'm Fabi. Fabienne Steel.

[She likes this introduction, why not use it again?]

Adra is the person who owns this laboratory.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*that's fine with me*

*rubs her forehead gently, pinching the bridge of her nose*
They can't be impossible to find..



(Hey Egg)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

How do we find out what to scan it with?

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

*Trip sits in his weekend retreat- the bar -rocking his daughter. She's getting pretty big, soon she'll be too big to rock. He spends his weekends looking out over the landscape of the blog, watching for trouble. World threatening trouble.*

*He is also totally aware it's not the weekend, but he's the boss dammit and it's the weekend when he says it is*

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*frowns at Silente then turns back to Fabi*
Oh okay. And she's disappeared? Is she... is she the one who's clothes are in front of the door?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Well, if it's an ID card, is it a card key to unlock something? If so, is it a general chip, or does it contain person-specific info?

If not, is the chip some sort of tracker?

I don't know, I don't usually operate top secret facilities that require the employees to have card keys or trackers

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

No, that's some woman who told us we have two weeks.
*glances at Fabi*
*sighs*
Fabienne, your hair again.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

No, that's someone else. We're trying to figure out who the woman who died outside was.

Adra isn't dead.

[Another section of hair turns silver]

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She will eat it carefully* *Today, their meal is even more meager- it consists of a slice of ham and a plantain* *Adra refuses* Whomever is holding us captive is intentionally trying to weaken us. Please... If they wish to speak to you, you need to have as much strength as possible.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*The lights in the lab flicker again, and there is another power outage* *There is a candle on a table, and plenty of lighters, though*
*An eerie feeling permeates the building and, far off, the sound of metal hitting metal echoes*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Oh, shit.

[The old Fabi doesn't swear]

[Too bad]

[She focuses, trying to get it to turn back]

[She's 85% successful]

[The top of her ear is still silver, but her hair hides it]

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Got it.
*she decides to stop asking questions*
*Silente and Fabienne seem worried and she's just bugging them*
Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

((Pretend that's before the power outage!))

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*blinks, her eyes quickly adjusting*
One second, I got it
*moves as a blur to the table, lighting the candle quickly, sighing at the abysmal light it gives off*

Aretha Tesla said...

*Ari magically appears back in the story* *and runs for the sound of metal hitting metal*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

What would you be able to help with?

[She doesn't particularly trust Dugglyn, but she's determined that they will accomplish something productive towards finding Adra, Niccolò, and Alastair]

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*looks around quickly in surprise*
*she has many more questions now*
*refrains from asking*
*clicks her fingers generating a small flame*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Oops, missed the power outage))

[Fabi starts to run toward the sound, but stops to avoid colliding with Ari]

[More of her hair is silver again]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*his voice softens a little* I hope you know that I won't take food from you when you need it, no matter how much wiser it may be for me to do so. What would do me the most good right now is sleep- so if you will promise to eat half of what we've been given, I will rest for a while.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*to Fabi*
I...
I don't know...
Just, if you need another person for something?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*stalks towards the sound, making sure to dodge Ari and Fabi*

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*debates following them but realizes she'd be no help*
*she'll come back later*
*magically Poofs out of existence*
((Gtg, pie!))

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*There is no source, actually- nothing has fallen at all* *Creepy*
-
*She bites her cheek, and takes the plantain, since she doesn't eat meat* Ok... *Peels, and nibbles on it* *Bends her knees so he can use her stomach as a pillow* Come lay down.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*rubs her temples and squeezes her eyes shut*

(Um.. powercut?)

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

((Bye Dug!))

Aretha Tesla said...

((Ok, Dugglyn. It was nice to have you for a few minutes!))

*stops once she realizes that it isn't coming from anywhere* *looks around* Why... *calls out to Silente and Fabi, then, worried that someone else might have gone missing*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*rests his head as lightly as he can against her, and closes his eyes* *he is asleep almost instantly, the battle to keep himself awake finally abandoned* *still, he doesn't sleep well- it's difficult to rest with so little left to keep his other names from taking power*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

(I'll be on until my phone dies guys, powercut means I can't charge it.)

I'm here.

Elemental_Geek (Aurelius Ryan Egg) said...

((i'll be here, browsing reddit))

((kisscartoon is failing me))

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She tries hard to keep them as far from the position of power as possible- it proves difficult, but her mind is all remaining that truly works*

-
*The lights will not turn on this time*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*walks to Ari and Fabi, gently taking their arms*
Follow me, I'll make sure you don't walk into anything.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Gtg, sorry, my class moved and I found it but I have to, like, be in class once it starts.))

((Might be able to reply one more time to actions hopefully))

Aretha Tesla said...

((Ok, cool.))

*nods to Silente, and then starts looking around for Fabi* *promptly pulls out her phone again, turning the flashlight on*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

(That's okay Fabi)

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Shakes off Sil's arm]

I'm fine, thanks. My hair is probably silver again, though.

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*after some effort on Adra's part, War will begin to retreat, shrinking his presence* *but Aretha does not*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay..
*puts her hands in her pockets, quite enjoying the dark*
*it helps the headache slightly*

Aretha Tesla said...

Oh, good, we're all here. So why did the power go out...?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She has been trying to console with War*
*She pushes hard against Aretha- it's difficult* *Has been urging any of the benevolent names to aid her- and quickly* *It's difficult, again, and she's doing her best to dissuade them*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[She focuses on trying to make her head normal again, but can't tell if it's working]

[She can't sense the metal when it's a part of her]

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

(Power has returned!!!)

So, we probably need a plan.

Aretha Tesla said...

*nods* Yes. That phone- do you think we could track it, see which locations it's been in? Then we could check them all, to figure out where they might be.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I'm not the best with technology but we could try? Do you know how to?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*The phone would have the most tower pings near the Canadian sanctuary in Quebec, though there are a great menu in Vancouver as well*

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

*Trip walks upstairs, putting Cara in her cot. He tucks her in tightly and wanders back down the stairs. The view is very impressive, the tips of the trees blurring into and ocean of green, broken by rivers and clearings, the volcano looming in the distance.*

*The hill must have gotten taller over time, he's sure of it, but he hasn't bothered to measure it.*

Aretha Tesla said...

Well, it looks like it has a tracking system of some sort, since it has maps. So I'll just try to see what previous locations there have been, I guess.

Inky Flame said...

Hello!

Hola.

(Hey Inkles, Gemma. How are ye?)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

That makes sense.
*nods and waits for her to do the techy techy stuff*
*leans against the wall, closing her eyes, rubbing her temples gently*

(Hey Chloe!!!)

(Trip! Been a while!

Over jacks ATM and it's amazing ^.^

I'll head off now

Nos da!!!)

Aretha Tesla said...

Ok, it looks like there's a lot of activity in Canada. How quickly can we get to Canada?

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

(Toodles!)

Amy, Sarah, Aria, Yona, Cordelia, Sebastian, Jax, Melione, Cam, Westly, Tsubaki, Blair, Lira, Lucas, Juvia, Jesabelle (Gemma) said...

Hey Trip, Chloe, Jai Jai.

I'm currently building a massive Tardis with Keiron on Em's server after she got rid of his last one -.-

I really like your house, Trip ^.^ all the flowers are so pretty.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

(Nos da Chloe!)

*grins* Thats easy. Where abouts in Canada?

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*Aretha won't stop* *he will wake again in about two hours*

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

(Thank you, Adra did those.

Have considered that she may have removed it for a reason?)

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

((The tardis crashed the server last time))

*She will do her best to keep her at bay* *When he wakes, she will be exhausted*

Aretha Tesla said...

*glances at the phone again* Looks like the Sanctuary, and then a few appearances in Vancouver.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*nods*
*taps her own nose and a portal to the Canadian sanctuary opens up, just outside of the sanctuary*
Step on through.

Aretha Tesla said...

*blinks* Awesome. Thank you. *steps through*

Aretha Tesla said...

((Keiron. Just being needlessly mean isn't going to help anything.
The server belongs to Em, not you, and if she doesn't want a giant TARDIS on it she has a right to that. You don't have to be aggressive about it.))

Harry, Richard, Hak, Conductor (keiron) said...

( it took 5 hours to build not that needlessly .... it's fine for mine and gem's computer... what's that say that broke it? their comps/..... wheres olaf and my house the church and jeb ? where they also causing crashes coz that's just bullshit and they know it. )

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

(Ari... Let's just write.))

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Keiron- Seriously don't go picking a fight with Em. She's gonna win. It's her server if she says no she has final say. Just because you don't have problems doesn't mean that it's bullshit. Talk it out civily, maybe it was the size. I know Em doesn't just do stuff for the fun of it. She has a reason.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Now excuse me since there's conflict I'm going to go finish writing that letter to Jared....

*vanishes*

Harry, Richard, Hak, Conductor (keiron) said...

( well if this one vanishes I might have some crashes too .. )

Harry, Richard, Hak, Conductor (keiron) said...

( it's 5000 blocks away so you know theres no way its crashing you anytime sooon )

Aretha Tesla said...

((Right.
I'm sorry for any trouble I caused.))

There might be. They probably have a medical bay somewhere that has some...

Amy, Sarah, Aria, Yona, Cordelia, Sebastian, Jax, Melione, Cam, Westly, Tsubaki, Blair, Lira, Lucas, Juvia, Jesabelle (Gemma) said...

Well the fact that she invited us on to the server means that she doesn't mind what we build.
I was really disappointed when i heard jai and Keiron built Olaf ontop of my house but it's not there anymore. Who got rid of that then?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

(I'm sorry, I'm leaving for the night. Maybe longer. I can't deal with.. what's just been thrown at me.)

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*there is spare blood in the medical bay*

Aretha Tesla said...

((You have nothing to apologize for, Jai. I'm sorry, and I hope the rest of your night will be better.))

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((:-/))

((I'm back from English...))

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Should I assume Fabi went through the portal, too? If not, she could teleport via amulet to the warehouse place she was before, but it's in rural Alberta, I think I said, so maybe not the most useful place to go?))

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((I have sent calming cat pictures to Jai and Noelle. If anyone else would like some, please let me know.))

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

I'm sorry too Fabi

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

It's ok.

[hugs Noelle]

I dedicate this page to tea, cookies, apples, and green beans. Also cats. All of the cats.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

Yeah..

*curls up*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*yeah*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he appreciates her having looked after him* Thank you...

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Adra nods, and slides back against the wal* Geez...

Aretha Tesla said...

*looks around the Sanctuary, then* *we can say Fabi teleported with them* So we're looking for a place where you could hide people so even a vampire can't hide them, or for a suspicious person.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Nods] Okay. We can also, if we see anyone, ask to see their ID, and see if it looks similar to the one the woman had.

Aretha Tesla said...

*nods* That sounds like a good idea. *walks around to try to find an administrator, or someone of the like* *in the interest of sound diplomatic relations, she can probably get help from these people*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

I'm sorry- have I caused you trouble?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

No... I'm just tired.
*She hits the floor*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*reaches for her, to try to catch her, or at least prevent her from hitting her head* Adra, are you alright?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Follows Ari, trying to look important and stuff]

((I missed my bus... :-/ ))

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*He may do the latter* *She's exhausted*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Ok here's a bus I can take. Good.))

((The view from the station is actually really nice. Like, you can see the Seattle skyline and the Olympic mountains in the distance, if it's not foggy or anything.))

((It's really, really smelly though.))

Aretha Tesla said...

(Oh, I'm sorry, Moss. Though I'm glad you found a bus to take.))

*suddenly, a frazzled official comes running down the hallway*

Excuse me!

*he seems very concerned about getting somewhere, and doesn't stop*

*begins to run after him, then* Excuse me- I'm Elder Tesla, of the Manhattan Sanctuary, and I'm here to investigate a kidnapping. Could you-

*he stops, then* Kidnapping? Whose?

Adra Cruciatus and Niccolò Croatoan. *looks over his face* Who did you think I was looking for?

Our Elder- he's just gone mising... I'm sorry, I'm afraid I must report to my superiors immediately. *he rushes away again, then*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he catches her head, then, and will let her rest against him*

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Feels another sharp pain, and she has to turn from him to cough against herself* *Doesnt want him to see*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Fabi frowns, thinking about the Canadian Elders and

((Could you tell me the names and disciplines of the Canadian Elders, or at least the one in question? Considering Fabi's general tendency to know things, it would be unlikely for her not to know this and comment some reason why the elder might have been taken.))

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

*not sure why that "and" is there. Pretend it's a "]" or something.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Almost to my stop. I'll be back in 15 minutes or so, when I'm home.))

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*strokes her hair once* It's alright, Adra. I hope we can agree that neither of us has to hide from the other.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Her eyes are watering* I just...

*Bites her lip* something else is misisng

Niccolò Croatoan said...

What is it?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Her eyes water* One of my kidneys is gone..

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*takes her hand, and squeezes it gently* We'll get it back.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Whimpers* Okay... *She's beyond frightened- if she loses another, her immune system will be shut down+

Aretha Tesla said...

((The missing Elder is named Ross Maroon, and had the ability to see the future.))

Niccolò Croatoan said...

It's alright, Adra. We will get it back, as we will get Alastair back. And until we do, I will look after you to the best of my ability.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Just squeezes her eyes shut, and scoots closer to him* *Burrows her head into her arm* Ok..

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Okay, thanks.))

((Also I'M HOOOOOOOOME))

((Hobbes pounces))

((-_- Bad tiger, no pouncing on me.))

((I'm in such a weird mood today, like what even is anything right now???))

((Also, by "had," do you mean to say Ross Maroon is dead? [raises an eyebrow] You don't have to answer that; Fabi would have no way of knowing. Still though. [raises other eyebrow bc why not]))

Okay, so I'm guessing the missing Elder is Ross Maroon, because that Sanctuary worker said "he." Maroon had the ability to see the future. So is the culprit someone who didn't want the future seen?

...

Also, we probably look really suspicious right now. Just saying.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

*Zanida watches quietly, she knows about the way Sanctuaries work*

Aretha Tesla said...

((Actually, I meant to type "has." XD But, maybe. We'll never know!
Unless you find out.))

...Yeah, we might. But I think we can work with these people, maybe. There must be some connection between the kidnappings.

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*strokes her hair a few more times* *he will hold her for a few more hours, then get up to pace around the room*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((@Zaf Is Zanida in the Canadian Sanctuary, or is she watching something else?

((@Ari Well, you could be lying about the typo. DUN DUN DUN DUNNNN))

I certainly hope we can work with these people.

...

We should probably find someone to be diplomatic towards.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*And she will be held* *When he gets up, her eyes lift* *Voice soft* What is it?

Aretha Tesla said...

Right. *heads off in the direction of the anxious person*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Follows]

[Figures she should leave the diplomacy thing to Ari]

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

((She's in the Sanctuary. She's just keeping herself hidden from everyone but you guys. Goddess ability.))

Fabi said...

((So Fabi can see her?))

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he has to be ready next time they're given food*
-
Ari: *notices Zanida, and bristles* *last time they met they were enemies* Zanida. What are you up to?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She breathes out, and lays on the floor* *A hatchway will eventually open, and a small tray is pushed through, as well as a bottle of cyanide, a note attached: "in case you change your mind"*

Fabi said...

[Fabi doesn't know Zanida, but Ari's reaction makes her bring her guard up. Her face goes blank, and her shoulders tense slightly]

[She nods stiffly in greeting]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he dives towards the opening the moment it appears, trying to reach outside of it*

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida: I'm not doing anything wrong. Actually I've had a change of heart. I hunt now....but I saw you were in the area and I can't resist meeting you.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*He may be able to, but what he will be sure to touch is rough gravel, as if they are outside*

*Adra hides back in the corner*

Fabi said...

[Fabi shrugs slightly looks at Ari in an "I don't know this person, so I'm gonna trust your judgement here" sort of way]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he doesn't care what he's touching, as long as it's not bound* *if it isn't, he'll try to do two things- power the symbols inside, and send shadows at the wall to tear through it*
-
Ari: ...You'll have to forgive me if I don't trust you yet, but I'm glad to hear you've had a change of heart.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida: *shrugs* Understandable. The Winchesters don't trust me yet well....Sam does, but Dean doesn't. I figured I could help you guys out.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*The wall can easily be exploded, and Adra jumps in surprise, hiding her head*
*There is a crushed hand beneath a section of the wall, where someone once was*
*However, a small circle glows beneath Niccolo's feet, as he may find himself entrapped in a binding circle*

Fabi said...

[Fabi shifts back and forth, uncertain]

[She feels like she should really be doing something, anything]

[Her hair is not going to turn silver again]

[Nope, not allowed]

...

[I said not allowed]

...

[Well, shit]

Fabi said...

((Bbs, dinner))

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Adra- my magic is bound, now, but I managed to break a wall. Can you feel anything, or do you know if the symbols worked?

Aretha Tesla said...

((Ok, Moss.))

I guess we can use all the help we can get. This isn't a demon or ghost problem, though, as far as I can tell.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida: I know. I've been watching, but I don't just deal with the supernatural.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She tries to move a little, crawling slowly to him* I don't know, the floor is wood... *She uses a rock to stand, trying to move outside the room*

*Niccolo would likely be able to see a small dark group of people approaching at a rapid pace*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*sees them approaching, and grows more anxious* Adra, people are coming. Be careful. *he tries to step out of the bound circle*

Aretha Tesla said...

So, if you've been watching, how much do you know about what's going on?

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*He would not be able to leave* *Adra gently places her hand on the ground outside* I don't know where we are... I don't recognize this. *Bites her cheek* *Ducks behind the wall as the people draw near, and the wall itself begins to put itself back together*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Fabi's hair is down, so she can see it this time.]

[It'd be pretty this way, if it didn't, you know, mean she was losing control of her magic]

[She focuses on turning it back while Ari and Zanida talk]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Get out if you can make it, find the others, and help them figure out what's going on.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*She nods, and ducks around the corner, moving quickly* *The other people spot her, and she knows that she won't be able to make it far* *The ground is unnatural*

*He'd hear her scream as the other guards approach, slowing as they are in front of him* *Their faces are unnaturally blank, and porcelain-like* *The wall grows around Niccolo, and he is pushed quickly, and far back into the room*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*he should still be able to feel and communicate with Adra through their link, since that isn't run by magic* Adra, if you aren't bound and yours doesn't work, use my magic. Teleport, or shunt- whatever you can to get away.

Aretha Tesla said...

Hey, Fabi... Are you ok?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

I'm fine, just turning my hair back again.

[She pulls it back in a ponytail and secures it with a metal band that seems to come out of nowhere]

[Gestures toward Zanida]

Are we deciding to trust her, then?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida: I hope. I am trustwrothy.

((I'm going to sleep. I've had a4 day weekend so just take Zan with I'll jump in after school.))

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*He won't be receiving an answer from her*

*The room seals around him again, effectively shutting him off again*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[D:]

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*takes a slow breath, letting the room close around him, and just tries to reach out to her, to make sure she's alright*

Aretha Tesla said...

((Ok.))

*looks her over critically* I can't trust you until you've proven yourself trustworthy, but I don't see why we shouldn't let you help. Thank you.

Now, let's see if we can get any help from these people. *walks in the direction of the nervous person, again*

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Follows Ari]

[Is somewhat surprised at how empty the place is]

[Wonders if everyone is in some sort of emergency assembly hall]

[Listens to the slight clack of her shoes on the floor...it's rather calming]

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*Their link will be mostly dark for a number of hours, even upwards of a day, with brief flashes of pain intermittently*

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

*apparently, that is the case* *once they do find people, they'll all be in a large sort of assembly hall, and there's a lot of talking and confusion* This is so not helpful... Wait here for a moment? I'm going to try to find that guy we were talking to earlier.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[Fabi nods]

Go ahead, I'll be here.

Aretha Tesla said...

*presses forward and weaves through the crowd, searching until she finds the man* *takes his arm, then, and leads him back to the door, to Fabi* *backs out a bit into the hallway, then* *he looks confused, but she cuts him off before he can begin to speak* Listen for a moment- I think our kidnappings are related. We came here because we found a connection between our kidnappings and this place. I need you to tell us everything you know about the circumstances of your Elder going missing.

What details are you looking for?

...Fabi, did you see anything odd when they went missing, aside from the power going out...?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

[She shakes her head]

I'm pretty sure I've already told you everything I could remember. You were there for a lot of it, too. Adra needed to go get her medicine, and she took Niccolò with her, down a hallway. Adra disappeared first, Niccolò started to say something, and then he disappeared, too.

Adra Cruciatus and that one thing that no one likes said...

Aretha Tesla said...

*nods* Ok. So, that's all we know about how they vanished. And, before that, Adra's phone went missing- and both of them ended up... Damaged, somehow, before they disappeared. Does any of that sound familiar to you?

*he thinks, trying to recall as much as he can* Elder Maroon is a busy man- I'm not around him often enough to know many details. But he did say, a few days ago, that he was experiencing migraines. There have been rumors that his foresight was failing him...

Did anything of his go missing?

*he shakes his head* Not anything that I know of.

*sighs, and runs her fingers through her hair* Ok. I'll file a report for release of information, and make sure his house is checked for anything gone or out of the ordinary. *looks to Fabi* Anything else you think we should know?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

((Adraaaaa D:))

Silente seemed like she had a headache. I don't know, I don't know her well enough to know whether she usually rubs her forehead like that, but it looked like she might have...

Aretha Tesla said...

*the stranger looks between them* Can I go now?

*blinks for a moment, and nods* Yes, of course. Thank you for your help. I look forward to collaborating further with your Sanctuary to recover those missing.

*he nods, and disappears back into the crowd, then*

Ok... *thinks about it for a moment, then looks to Fabi* Any more ideas?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic ~ Purple Carrots said...

Not at the moment...

[She considers]

First Alastair disappeared, then Adra started missing more pieces, then she and Niccolò disappeared and Maroon started having headaches and possibly trouble using his power, then he disappeared.

So he-she-it-they is weakening people, then taking them, I suppose.

Can I just say
if someone invites you to a party, that doesn't mean they want you to start scribbling on their bedroom walls in biro.
An invitation doesn't mean "yeah just come and do whatever the fuck you want it's okay." It means you are invited, as a guest, and are expected to behave with the decency and respect of a guest, or at least with the decency and respect of a human being.
At least that's what I'm pretty sure most people would assume.

^And yes that was a metaphor making a point as opposed to just some random kerfaffle.

Well building a TARDIS, or an olaf on top of my house, isn't exactly scribbling on the walls, Star.

Emerald Melody said...

That's exactly what people are saying Star, well done.

And it's what I'm saying.

Whatever has gone on in the server has happened. We get on with it, stop throwing around aggression and blame and just start again. That's the best part about Minecraft.

And if anyone doesn't like that, then they can go and buy their own bloody server. I'm not paying for something to have people bitch and moan.

Just thought I would throw my 2 cents in there.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser, Starlion, Aragorn, Caterpillar, Gwen, Starfish :) said...

@Gemma: No, not really.
*thinks* But personally, I hate people looking through my stuff. I don't like people in my room, I don't like people on my phone, on a bad day I don't like people looking through my pencil case. It's not logical or anything, it's just sort of an emotional thing I have. And I know that most people, when entering my house, wouldn't realise that looking through my stuff would cause me anxiety so they'd probably, if the situation was right, just go do it without thinking that it might affect me. I hold no grudge against them for that; I don't expect people to be mind readers. However, if I politely tell them I have an issue and it's making me anxious, it would be nice if they would respect my feelings and go "Okay seeing as how that botehrs you I'll just go do something else instead." Not "Well you invited me into your house so I would assume you're comfortable with me being in your house and if you didn't want me here why'd you invite me."
My point is that an invitation into a place isn't an invitation to do whatever you want in said place (general you, not you personally). You're still a guest.

I'm NOT making this point to have a go at you for being unreasonable - the reason I am making this point is to point out a flaw I found in your logic regarding the nature of invitations. Italics are to empathise point, not to yell.
