To quote Blood...

The woods. It's a large group of trees with things living in it. Go and frolic around in it.

2006-12-30, 03:26 PM
She frowns. You'd prefer to get involved?

2006-12-30, 03:28 PM
Bridge frowns, looking up at Fallon

I'd prefer to help, ma'am, if that's what you mean.

2006-12-30, 03:41 PM
Fallon looks at Demetrius.

2006-12-30, 03:45 PM
Demetrius is shivering in the snow, huddled over. Bridge frowns

Hey... Miss? Where's your other brother?

2006-12-30, 03:46 PM
Fallon looks back to the makeshift house. Probably inside cuddling up to Mom...

2006-12-30, 03:50 PM
Bridge smiles

Aww... That's good... I thought he would lose it soon if somebody didn't help him.

She sighs and looks away into the woods

2006-12-30, 04:02 PM
Fallon drops her gaze. I don't think it's any of your business how he acts...

2006-12-30, 04:06 PM
Demetrius burrows under the snow some while Bridge bites her lip

... Alright, ma'am.

2006-12-30, 04:18 PM
Fallon looks to Demetrius. Will you stop? What's wrong with you?

2006-12-30, 04:28 PM
Demetrius shivers a bit after sticking his head out of the snow

I'm cold.

2006-12-30, 06:58 PM
Fallon motions to the house. Then go inside...silly thing. She smiles slightly.

2006-12-30, 07:02 PM
Demetrius shakes his head, spraying snow everywhere

I want to stay outside with you.

Bridge sighs

Permission to go inside, miss...

2006-12-30, 07:04 PM
Fallon glances to Bridge and nods. She then looks back to Demetrius. Listen...I've been thinking about what you said last night...and I want to find my master. If just to see him, without letting him see me.

2006-12-30, 07:08 PM
Bridge bows to Fallon and walks inside the house

Demetrius grins

I mean, if that's as far as you want to go, that's fine with me... I take it we'd be going to Wurmwreath then, or something? As far as I can remember, there isn't really a war yet...

2006-12-30, 07:10 PM
She nods. But if you remember your history, they always made any visitor drink that awful concoction with the silver and wolfsbane in it...

Mhina looks up at the stranger, curiously, and somewhat suspiciously. Who are you?

2006-12-30, 07:18 PM
Demetrius shrugs

They're only looking for a "criminal" who is a werewolf, not werewolves in general. They should let us inside the city...

Bridge bows

My name is Bridge, I came-

Holy hell, Bridge!? You've grown!

Bridge giggles and continues

- from the same time as Fallon and the rest.

She smiles and bows

May I ask the same question of you, miss?

2006-12-30, 07:23 PM
Fallon nods. So...I'm assuming you want to go with me...

Mhina looks quite confused. Mhina Shipmaster...

2006-12-30, 07:28 PM
Demetrius shrugs

If you'd let me.

Bridge's eyes widen and she bows again

I-... I'm'... It's very nice to meet you miss!

2006-12-30, 07:32 PM
Fallon frowns slightly, I would...but are you sure you can handle going there?

Mhina stiffens visibly. Oh..uh...please...the formalities aren't necessary...

2006-12-30, 07:38 PM
Demetrius smiles

I'll try not to blow anything up.

He winks

Bridge bites her lip, aperenetly looking around the room for something

Sorry miss...

2006-12-30, 07:41 PM
Fallon chuckles and looks off in the direction of Wurmswreath. I don't think it wise to tell them where we're going...

Mhina blushes, Oh, no...you don't need to apologize..

2006-12-30, 07:50 PM
Demetrius nods

But we should tell them we're leaving.

Bridge bows again

So-... Oh, right, heh...

2006-12-30, 07:56 PM
Fallon nods. But not about where we're going.

Mhina smiles at Bridge.

2006-12-30, 07:58 PM
I know. You just said that.

Bridge smiles as well

Is Antony here?

2006-12-30, 08:00 PM
Fallon frowns at Demetrius, Don't sass me...I'm nervous, okay.

Mhina looks around, certain that Antony was here just a moment ago.

2006-12-30, 08:05 PM
Demetrius smiles sadly


Antony seems to be asleep on the floor behind Mhina

2006-12-30, 08:07 PM
Fallon pushes him lightly toward the house. You go tell them. They like you.

Mhina smiles at the sleeping Antony.

2006-12-30, 08:16 PM
Demetrius raises an eyebrow

They like you too, y'know.

Bridge leans over to see what she's looking at

Is he there?

2006-12-30, 08:18 PM
Fallon shakes her head, Don't argue. Just tell them.

Mhina nods.

2006-12-30, 08:27 PM
Demetrius sighs

Just... Don't leave without me.

Demetrius heads for the house

Bridge smiles and flops onto the ground next to Antony, not saying anything

2006-12-30, 08:31 PM
Fallon crosses her arms, leaning against a tree.

Mhina smiles at Bridge and then looks up at Lykan.

2006-12-30, 08:39 PM
Lykan shrugs, going back to furnishing and decorating the walls and such

Demetrius enters the house, looking around

Oh... Hey... We're just gonna go explore the mountains for a bit, okay?

Bridge looks down at Antony, smiling

2006-12-30, 08:41 PM
Mhina smiles and nods to Demetrius. Okay...be careful.

2006-12-30, 08:45 PM
Demetrius nods, smiling before heading out to his sister again

You ready?

Bridge continues to look down at Antony, reaching a hand to shake him awake but then retracting it again, desiding against it

2006-12-30, 08:47 PM
She nods, pushing herself up off of the tree without uncrossing her arms.

Mhina looks between the two, feeling distinctly like a third wheel.

2006-12-30, 08:53 PM
Demetrius frowns

What'd I do?

Bridge looks back up at Mhina

Oh... Umm... So... Anything happen around here?

2006-12-30, 08:57 PM
Fallon shakes her head. I believe it is time for one of your spells.

Mhina frowns, a haunted look in her eyes, Two...people... attacked...one turned into this huge black monster...

2006-12-30, 09:02 PM
Demetrius sighs

I'm sorry, Lin...

He rests a hand on her shoulder, and they dissipear

Bridge bites her lip

Oh... So you guys fought the black dragon, then...

She looks at the ground

They're not all like that, you know.

2006-12-30, 09:05 PM
Mhina nods. I'd met another...it just wasn't so...big... She shudders.

2006-12-30, 09:15 PM
Bridge sighs, looking at the ground

Oh... Well... Not all the big ones are bad either... Though some of us tend to radiate fear at that size...

Bridge pauses for a moment then slaps her forehead

2006-12-30, 09:17 PM
Mhina flushes. I'm sorry...I never meant to insult you...

2006-12-30, 09:27 PM
Bridge shakes her head

You never did. Lots of people are afraid of dragons.

She raises a hand, to show Mhina the copper scales and claws on it

It's just an exposure thing.

2006-12-30, 09:29 PM
Mhina nods. Honestly, I've been injured by my kind a lot more than yours.

2006-12-30, 09:38 PM
Bridge sighs, looking down at Antony

The same is true for me. A great many dragons work for Wurmwreath... Not that it's most of their choice, but that doesn't change that they're still hostile.

She exposes her shoulder to reveal a rather large bite scar

A Hrey'falgex did that... Came right out of nowhere and almost tore my arm off...

2006-12-30, 09:39 PM
Mhina seems interested in the story until she says the big word. Then she just looks confused.

2006-12-30, 09:44 PM
Bridge chuckles

Oh, they're the red ones. They're quite big, and they breath fire.

2006-12-30, 09:47 PM
Mhina makes an "oh" face, without making a sound.

2006-12-30, 09:51 PM
Bridge shrugs

It's draconic... I gotta remember not to just randomly speak it with people.

She smiles again

2006-12-31, 12:46 PM
A figure watches from the other side of the room. He thought about leaning on the wall, but being shirtless and the wall being partially made of ice? That wasn't a good idea.

2006-12-31, 12:52 PM
Bridge looks up from where she fell asleep on the floor next to Antony


Lykan sleeps in his bed, and Antony seems to still be out cold

2006-12-31, 12:54 PM
The red-headed man smiles at Bridge and brings a finger to his lips. He watches Mhina as she sleeps, curiously.

2006-12-31, 12:57 PM
Bridge stands, her hands turning to claws as she takes a step foreward

Who are you?

2006-12-31, 12:59 PM
Descartes flew and flew as much as his host body's wings could fly, trying to get as far away as possible from that...thing. Damn, damn, damn, damn, DAMN! He thought.

That thing not only somehow knows who and what I am, but he's god-awfully strong and probably impervious to any attack I could give him... He begins to lose altitude as he leaves the city limits, entering the forest.

After a while he reaches terra-firma. Sitting on the ground, he props himself against the tree. The damn thing wasn't even grabbing me that hard and he perforated this body... Descartes looks at the various hols going down his side. I'll have to make sure to keep away from it...

2006-12-31, 01:00 PM
He holds up his hands defensively.


He motions to Mhina and gives Bridge a charismatic grin, I'm her grandfather.

2006-12-31, 01:03 PM
Bridges eyes narrow


2006-12-31, 01:07 PM
He gives her a lopsided grin. Ah...you've heard of me.

He sighs, looking back at Mhina, a forlorn expression crossing his face. I suppose...not everyone's transgressions can be forgiven simply because you face a new year.

2006-12-31, 01:08 PM
Bridge crosses her arms

Well I'm sorry... But you are a god of trickery.

2006-12-31, 01:13 PM
He nods. Indeed I am. Which is why it's going to be very hard to clear my name. How many people will believe a trickster when he says he truly wishes to change? He doesn't take his eyes off of Mhina. He motions to her, She would. At least...before her most recent 'vacation.' She's that kind of person.

2006-12-31, 01:14 PM
Bridge sighs

I wouldn't know. I haven't met her before.

2006-12-31, 01:16 PM
Descartes sighs. He can't tell if the conversation he's hearing behind him is real or not.

Damn..I can maneuver this body around some time after dying, but that draco's attack sure isn't helping. I'll have to find a new host soon.

2006-12-31, 01:18 PM
Loki smiles gently, still watching Mhina. You'll like her. She's a likeable person.

(Nevrmore...they're in a house...)

2006-12-31, 01:20 PM
Bridge sighs

Lots of people worship her where I come from.

2006-12-31, 01:22 PM
Loki's eyes widen in surprise as he looks at Bridge. He bursts out laughing, then quickly stiffles it, looking to the others in shock.

2006-12-31, 01:25 PM
Antony stirs slightly. Lykan does as well. Bridge raises an eyebrow

What's you're problem?

2006-12-31, 01:26 PM
Loki gives her another charming smile. It was just...unexpected...

2006-12-31, 01:29 PM
Bridge rolls her eyes

Well... It's true. My commanding officer is a paladin of her.

2006-12-31, 01:33 PM
Loki chuckles and shakes his head, looking back to Mhina in appreciation.

2006-12-31, 01:36 PM
Bridge raises an eyebrow, smiling slightly

On top of that... It's her daughter.

2006-12-31, 01:39 PM
Loki chokes and begins coughing. Er...What?

2006-12-31, 01:42 PM
Bridge nods, then slaps her forehead again

Oh, wait, right. Crap.

2006-12-31, 01:44 PM
Loki frowns, looking between Bridge and Mhina. He narrows his eyes in Mhina's direction. She's pregnant...I failed to notice.

2006-12-31, 01:46 PM
Bridge nods

Yuppers. Fallon Lin.

2006-12-31, 02:00 PM
(Nevrmore...they're in a house...)
((Arrrgh, stupid unexpected houses in a forest. ABOMINATION OF NATURE, I SAY!))

Descartes stands up. He feels the host body is weak now. He begins wandering around, looking for anything large enough to contain him.

2006-12-31, 03:22 PM
Loki scowls at the news and turns away. I suppose it's to be expected...so you're from the future, then...

2006-12-31, 03:26 PM
Bridge grins sheepishly, scratching the back of her head

Whoops... I need to remember to make bluff checks more often. I guess I am.

2006-12-31, 03:28 PM
Loki scowls. Why can't people just remain in their own times and demensions...

2006-12-31, 03:33 PM
Bridge shrugs

The same reason people can't stay dead.

2006-12-31, 03:38 PM
Loki frowns at her, Now that's not fair. At least I'm not hopping into other people's times and trying to insinuate that a person living at that time deserves to die. That's just rude.

2006-12-31, 03:41 PM
Bridge smiles, though sadness is present in her eyes

I'm sorry... I did not mean to come of quite so harsh.

2006-12-31, 03:43 PM
Loki looks to Mhina again. I suppose you're never too old to be a great-grandfather.

2006-12-31, 03:51 PM
Bridge looks down at Antony again

If you think so...

2006-12-31, 03:52 PM
Loki smiles slyly, Why don't you tell him how you feel?

2006-12-31, 03:58 PM
Bridge twitches

Please don't look at my thoughts...

2006-12-31, 04:00 PM
Loki laughs. Do you really think I had to read your mind to see how you feel about that boy?

2006-12-31, 04:04 PM
Bridge blushes

Umm... Uh... Heh...

She looks at the ground sheepishly

... I'm not sure if I should...

2006-12-31, 04:06 PM
Loki waves away her hesitance. No one ever got where they wanted to be by staying silent.

2006-12-31, 04:10 PM
Bridge sighs

But... There's too much going on... I don't want to chuck a monkey wrench into his family reunion... And then there's the thing where he's of higher rank then me... I'm just not sure it would work... Would it?

2006-12-31, 04:13 PM
Loki smirks. If he's anything like the rest of his family, rank means nothing. You wouldn't think LG would work with CN, but it worked for his grandparents.

2006-12-31, 04:17 PM
Bridge flops to the ground and reaches partially toward Antony, before stopping and lowering her hand again. She sighs

I... Well... What if he doesn't like me back?

2006-12-31, 04:19 PM
Loki shrugs. Best to know now so you can stop obsessing and move on.

2006-12-31, 04:23 PM
Bridge nods and Shakes the sleeping boy

... Antony?

Antony wakes up, yawns silently, and looks at her questioningly, not noticing Loki

Umm... Uh... Well...

2006-12-31, 04:25 PM
Loki motions for her to get on with it.

2006-12-31, 04:34 PM
Bridge takes a deep breath

I like you. Alot.

Antony bites his lip, looking at the ground

Is something wrong?

Antony shakes his head and holds up his hands

Bridge raises an eyebrow

What's that mean?

Antony bites his lip, looking around the room and spoting Loki. He scrambles backwards

Bridge looks like she was put on the edge of tears by his last action

Oh... Okay...

Antony looks between Loki and Bridge franticaly, trying to relay some silent message to either one

2006-12-31, 04:35 PM
Loki raises an eyebrow. I think what he's trying to say is that he likes someone else. Though if you don't know that, he's probably not admitted it to her, either.

Oh, yea...he also says 'oh my god, look out, it's Loki.' He smirks.

2006-12-31, 04:41 PM
Antony glares at Loki while Bridge's shoulder's slump

Oh... Okay...

Antony crawls back over to her and sighs, biting his lip. He takes her hand and squeezes it. She sighs again, looking away

2006-12-31, 04:43 PM
Loki smiles. You know...you look just like your grandmother when you make the 'angry' face.

2006-12-31, 04:45 PM
Antony growls, inaudibly. If that's possible.

Bridge looks up at Loki, saddened

Now what?

2006-12-31, 04:47 PM
Loki gives her another charming smile, If it would make you feel better, I'll take you to Trog's for a drink.

2006-12-31, 04:50 PM
Bridge looks back at Antony momentarily who is looking between them, shocked, before noding


2006-12-31, 04:53 PM
He winks at Antony, Trust me...she probably is much better in bed than your fantasy chick. He offers his arm to Bridge.

2006-12-31, 04:57 PM
A blood vessal throbs in Antony's head as Bridge takes the offered arm and sniffs, looking down at the ground

2006-12-31, 04:58 PM
Loki pats her hand comfortingly and winks slyly at Antony before stepping out of the building.

2006-12-31, 05:03 PM
Bridge looks back at the building before looking at the ground again

Let's just go...

Antony scrambles around the room, looking for something...

2006-12-31, 05:07 PM
Loki leans against a tree and pulls Bridge close to him. I want you to listen closely...I'm trying to help. I get a very bad feeling about his crush. If I can make him think about trying to save you by taking you out on a date just to get you away from me...well, it would make you both happy.

You're a sweet girl. He'll realize this if he spends some time with you. He glances back toward the house, holding Bridge in one arm, and waiting for the right moment.

2006-12-31, 05:14 PM
Bridge raises an eyebrow, whiping away a tear on her sleeve

Bad feeling? What's wrong?

Antony frantically searches through his pack

Come on... Dammit... Where is it...

2006-12-31, 05:17 PM
Loki shrugs, I get the feeling he likes someone that could use those feelings to manipulate him into doing something wrong. It's a god of trickery thing.

2006-12-31, 05:20 PM
Bridge nods, biting her lip

Oh... Okay...

Antony grabs something out of the bag and dissipears. Red eyes appear in the tree above the pair

2006-12-31, 05:23 PM
Loki can almost feel the presence, and though he's not quite sure who it is he backs Bridge up into the tree and lifts her chin. You know...dragons do have a very tempting allure about them... He slowly brings his lips to meet hers.

2006-12-31, 05:27 PM
Bridge's eyes widen at first, then she relaxes, kissing Loki back. The thing in the tree hisses at Loki and leaps down at him, something pointy and glinting green in his hand...

2006-12-31, 05:29 PM
Loki falls back after pushing Bridge out of the way.

2006-12-31, 05:34 PM
Bridge stumbles back and falls butt-first into the snow, as Antony lands in front of her. He seems to have a slightly demonic aura about him, and is haunched over on all fours. He leaps at Loki again

2006-12-31, 05:36 PM
Loki jumps back and frowns. Not the result I was looking for. Sit. Stay. Good boy.

2006-12-31, 05:40 PM
Antony dissipears and reappears behind Loki, trying to trip and pin him to the ground

2006-12-31, 05:41 PM
Loki falls and groans. Dammit...if you don't stop I'll have to put a collar on you. I'll give your girlfriend the leash, though.

2006-12-31, 05:47 PM
Antony raises an eyebrow, placing the knife on his throat. Bridge's eyes widen

Antony... Don't...

Antony sighs and drops the knife, but doesn't release his hold on Loki

2006-12-31, 05:48 PM
Loki looks up at Antony. What do you care, boy...you have no interest in the girl. If I want to go out with her, it's my own damned business.

2006-12-31, 05:52 PM
... Ou... Disgusting... Ervert... Your not... Owed to touch someone... Ike her!

Antony tries to strangle Loki

2006-12-31, 05:54 PM
Loki smiles, even though he's unable to speak from being choked. Then you take her for a drink.

2006-12-31, 06:01 PM
Antony sneers before standing up and backing off, being sure to tread on Loki's face as he steps off and sits in the snow, facing away from the pair

... Antony?

He doesn't respond

2006-12-31, 06:05 PM
Loki stands, holding his broken nose, he growls, glaring at Antony, his eyes glowing.

He takes a deep breath and looks at Bridge, I t'ink I'd godda haffa take a raidcheck. He wipes the blood from his nose and stares up at the sky, trying to get the bleeding to stop.

2006-12-31, 06:08 PM
Bridge bites her lip

I'm sorry... I'd fix it, but I don't know divine magic...

Antony looks down into the snow, lost in thought

2006-12-31, 06:13 PM
He smiles and winks at her, still holding his nose. He looks back to Antony.

Shoudn't gidden up. She sdill dinks I'm cude. Eden wid a broked dose.

2006-12-31, 06:28 PM
Bridge smiles halfheatedly. Antony stares at the ground, not listening to Loki

2006-12-31, 06:33 PM
He sighs and shrugs. Dorry. He cad help id he'd nod cude. Ugey guy probaby id embarrad eved to ask you oud.

2006-12-31, 06:39 PM
Bridge sighs, looking for a reaction from Antony, which doesn't come...

2006-12-31, 06:41 PM
Loki smiles and approaches Bridge. But as long as he doesn't feel like being chivalrous. He kisses her, passionately. Perhaps I should take you back to the plane of chaos where we can continue this.

2006-12-31, 06:43 PM
Bridge raises an eyebrow and smiles sheepishly again. Antony does nothing more then crunch a bit of snow into a ball with his hand

2006-12-31, 06:46 PM
Loki closes his eyes for a moment before slapping Antony in the back of the head. You dumb shock. I thought you were trying to save the damsel in distress!

2006-12-31, 06:50 PM
There's not damsel IN distress. This is a completly stressless situation.

He stands

I'm sorry I interrupted your date.

He heads back to the house

2006-12-31, 06:52 PM
He turns and looks at Bridge with a charismatic smile. Well...there's always the plane of chaos.

2006-12-31, 06:54 PM
Antony flops down on the floor and bangs his head against it

Bridge frowns

I don't know...

2006-12-31, 06:57 PM
Loki sighs and gives her a lopsided grin, Yea...well...your mind's obviously not in the same place mine is. Go back in there and talk to him...or something. I don't know, I've never been good at the mushy stuff.

2006-12-31, 07:01 PM
She sighs, tears welling up in her eyes again as she looks back at the hose

I'm 106 year old... I should be smart enough to be able to pick up what's wrong by now...

2006-12-31, 07:03 PM
Loki laughs. Cutie...I'm a hundred times your age and I still don't get it.

2006-12-31, 07:07 PM
Bridge sighs, whiping tears on her sleeve again

I suppose we'd need Freyja for that sort of thing, huh?

She looks down at the snow

Is he a lost cause at this point?

2006-12-31, 07:09 PM
Loki sighs, leaning against a tree. Not completely. Not if you can get him to open up about who he does like. The problem seems to be that he doesn't speak. At all.

2006-12-31, 07:12 PM
Bridge nods

I know... He hasn't spoken a word since miss Mhina died...

2006-12-31, 07:13 PM
Loki smiles slyly. So we just need to get my little granddaughter to get him to open up...

That should not be a problem at all...

2006-12-31, 10:21 PM
Well... I think he actuall might be physically incapable of proper speech... You heard him before...

She sighs again, flopping down in the snow

2006-12-31, 10:25 PM
He shakes his head. Not that kind of opening up....it can be telepathic...

What do you see in the speechless wimp, anyway?

2006-12-31, 10:58 PM
Bridge frowns

He's self sacrificing... Giving, loyal... Creative... He's cute, too, which is a nice bonus...

She smiles slightly, looking down at the snow

2007-01-01, 10:27 AM
Loki sneers. If he were any of what you just said--besides the cute, that has nothing to do with anything--then he would have protected you to the end...

He stops and looks around. Something doesn't feel right...

2007-01-01, 10:40 AM
Bridge raises an eyebrow

I'm sorry... I never really invested in sense motive... What do you think is up?

2007-01-01, 10:41 AM
He tenses, By the gods...Wukei's dead...

His eyes glow fiercely, And I know who killed her.

2007-01-01, 10:45 AM
Bridge raises an eyebrow

Wu-... Oh...

She stands up and tries to brush the snow off her pants, which has partially melted through. She shakes her head

So... Umm... I guess we should help?

2007-01-01, 10:47 AM
He raises an eyebrow at her, How, exactly, do you intend to help someone already deceased.

He mumbles to himself, Hm...the magic resistance placed on her might be an issue...

2007-01-01, 10:52 AM
The copper dragon raises an eyebrow, placing a hand on her hip

Well... I didn't know about that...

She concentrates, and a pair of copper wings tinded with green grow from her back, as well as a tail from her behind

Magic resistance? How resistant is this resistance?

2007-01-01, 10:56 AM
No sorcery, no divine magic, and no psionics....

2007-01-01, 10:58 AM
Bridge frowns, the tail and wings re-merging with her back

Then what can she be affected by?

2007-01-01, 11:02 AM
He shakes his head. Nothing that I know of...and I know of a lot. It might be possible for myself or another god to give her life...but the chances that it would fail...

He clenches his fist.

2007-01-01, 11:05 AM
Bridge smiles

It's worth a try, right?

2007-01-01, 11:08 AM
He sighs. Hopefully Hawkeye is within the area...I'll need to revive him as well or she'll just immediately die...

That stupid priest...

2007-01-01, 11:11 AM
Bridge raises an eyebrow

Missing something again. What's stupid about a priest?

2007-01-01, 11:15 AM
Fenric thought it would make Wukei and Hawkeye happy to bond their souls. Now whenever he dies, she dies. And vice-versa.

Bastard priest...it makes my job ten times harder.

2007-01-01, 11:18 AM
Bridge nods, biting her lip

Then couldn't you raises them both into Hawkeye's body, then transfer miss Wukei's soul to her own body?

2007-01-01, 11:20 AM
He chuckles and shakes his head. They've done something similar to keep themselves alive. But the bond still exists, no matter where the souls are.

2007-01-01, 11:26 AM
Bridge sighs

Then why woudn't it work?

2007-01-01, 11:29 AM
He looks at her, frowning. Because it would still take magic to get her soul where it belongs. And if her body is resistant...they'd end up dying again. Same problem.

2007-01-01, 11:33 AM
Bridge sighs

We could still try, right? No harm in not doing so?

2007-01-01, 11:37 AM
He shrugs, Then why not just try putting her in her own body? What's the point of going through the extra trouble?

2007-01-01, 11:43 AM
Bridge nods

I know. Why don't we, huh? Or rather you, because I can't do anything that would help...

2007-01-01, 11:44 AM
He frowns, And why don't you get the balls to ask your boyfriend in there out on a date?

Why should I bring those two back to life? They hate me.

2007-01-01, 11:47 AM
Bridge crosses her arms

I recall you said you wanted to "turn over a new leaf", or something...

She chuckles

And by me "getting balls", it might defeat the purpous of trying to get a boyfriend.

2007-01-01, 11:49 AM
Loki frowns. The point elludes you completely.

2007-01-01, 11:51 AM
Bridge's eye narrow

I thought the god of trickery would like a joke, excuse me.

2007-01-01, 11:52 AM
He shakes his head. I've lost a divine agent and a child all at once. Forgive me if I'm a little dull.

2007-01-01, 11:55 AM
Bridge sighs, and rests a hand on his shoulder

We'd be doing more by working now, rather then talking about it...

2007-01-01, 11:58 AM
He frowns. Honestly...I am rather scared of going there. Imagining what a demon could do...it's not pretty...

2007-01-01, 12:00 PM
Bridge raises an eyebrow

You keep leaving stuff out... Demon?

2007-01-01, 12:02 PM
The god that I'm sure killed Wukei, and thus Hawkeye. Or maybe the other way around...no, it couldn't have been. He was under a contracted geas. He wouldn't have been able to touch Hawkeye...

2007-01-01, 12:04 PM
Bridge leans against a tree

What was his Geas?

2007-01-01, 12:07 PM
With the agreement that he became a god he wasn't allowed to near Hawkeye.

2007-01-01, 12:13 PM
Bridge shrugs

Maybe he's not a god anymore?

2007-01-01, 12:18 PM
He frowns. Somehow, I doubt that. He found a loophole in how to kill Hawkeye. And it's that stupid soulbind.

2007-01-01, 12:20 PM
Bridge sighs

So he killed Wukei.

2007-01-01, 12:22 PM
He nods. I told her to make the contract extend to him not harming her as well...

2007-01-01, 12:27 PM
Bridge sighs, looking off into the woods

So... You want to help, but you're afraid of a demon.

2007-01-01, 12:28 PM
Loki scoffs. I am not scared of that lowlife. I'm a greater god!

2007-01-01, 12:32 PM
Bridge smiles and begins walking towards the town

Okey dokey.

2007-01-01, 12:35 PM
Loki scowls at her back and follows her.

Gorbad the Limb Rippa
2007-01-01, 05:55 PM
A half orc in a black cloak and hood walks towards Town

2007-01-01, 06:39 PM
Cassandra walks out to the forest and searches for rare plants to study.


After a day of wandering in the woods and cataloging several new plant varieties, she heads back to Town.

2007-01-01, 11:46 PM
Sasic, who has started to zone out, hears someone new approaching. She looks up nervously.
"Am I the only one who hears that?" she asks.
{By the way: red is Sasic speaking, cyan is Sasic whispering.}

2007-01-02, 12:42 PM
Antony sighs, looking around the room. His father had been asleep for the past few days, his brother and sister were gone, and he had no idea what was going on with his mother. He sighs and picks up a book out of his back, wacking it against his head over and over again

Shut. Up. You. Jerk.

2007-01-02, 12:44 PM
Mhina places a hand on Antony's shoulder. Are you all right?

2007-01-02, 12:47 PM
Antony shakes his head, sighing, laying down the book and looking at the ground

2007-01-02, 12:49 PM
She smiles sadly at him, Want to talk about it?

2007-01-02, 12:53 PM
He looks at the ground

It involves a bunch of things... A girl, a demon, a god... And my weak willpower and internally violent nature. Does that answer anything?

2007-01-02, 12:56 PM
She shakes her head. Not really...but I know how hard it can be when you have a god possessing you...

2007-01-02, 01:01 PM
Antony sighs

I'm not even possesed by a god, and it's hard to deal with... The girl said that she liked me, but for some reason... I couldn't say I liked her back. She's nice and smart and everything! My mind keeps on going off to someone else that I've only ever really seen fighting...

2007-01-02, 01:02 PM
Mhina smiles, Well perhaps you should tell this other girl how you feel...

2007-01-02, 01:06 PM
Antony frownsclutching his forehead

I can't. Hell, I shouldn't even be in love with that girl, she tortured my sister! She's a sick, twisted woman!

2007-01-02, 01:08 PM
Mhina tenses. Well...then perhaps you should give the other girl a chance?

2007-01-02, 01:10 PM
He looks up at Mhina, sadness in his eyes

I'm trying... Honest... But I just can't...

He picks up he book again and hits his head with it

And. I can't figure. Out. Why!

After each sentance, he whackshimself with the book again

2007-01-02, 01:11 PM
She lays a hand on his shoulder. Just invite her to dinner. Get to know her.

2007-01-02, 01:16 PM
Antony sighs

I'll try... But something repulsive comes to mind whenever I talk to her.

He looks back up

I really don't get why... She's very pretty.

2007-01-02, 01:17 PM
Mhina frowns. Perhaps...it's not you?

2007-01-02, 01:20 PM
He frowns

Then who? Couldn't be her...

((off for a bit...))

2007-01-02, 01:22 PM
She shakes her head. I don't know. But you've had a lot of people follow you from the future, it seems...

2007-01-02, 02:43 PM
Antony sighs, looking at the ground

Both of the girls I speak of are from my time...

2007-01-02, 02:46 PM
She shrugs. You know, it's not so bad. It seems your friends really like you...to follow you back fifty years...

2007-01-02, 02:51 PM
Antony sighs

The girl I'm trying to like is one of those three... She's a dragon... A copper one... She spends alot of her time in human form, though...

His eye twitches slightly, and he rubs his forehead

2007-01-02, 02:54 PM
She smiles, Well perhaps we should figure out what really is the problem.

2007-01-02, 02:57 PM
Antony looks up

How? We don't even know what's wrong...

2007-01-02, 02:59 PM
Mhina shrugs and smiles, That's why I said we should figure it out.

2007-01-02, 03:05 PM
Angelus walks through the woods to an area he thinks is empty, from there he begins to chant to himself.

2007-01-02, 03:06 PM
Antony looks confused

But where do we start?

2007-01-02, 03:07 PM
She shrugs, smiling. I have no idea.

2007-01-02, 03:10 PM
After he finishes chanting, Angelus lets out a loud demonic roar as he could feel power surging through his body. Angelus then began to grom fangs and claws.

2007-01-02, 03:12 PM
Antony sighs

Well... Shouldn't we try to see if it's me or something? You know... Before the wild roc chase...

2007-01-02, 03:15 PM
Mhina smiles. I could try probing your mind...

2007-01-02, 03:18 PM
After slashing at some trees, Angelus decasts the spell and begins to walk toward the town.

2007-01-02, 03:19 PM
He shudders sightly, calms himself, and nods


2007-01-02, 03:20 PM
(They're in a house, Brandon)

Mhina nods and places a hand on his shoulder and relaxes, closing her eyes and reaches into his mind.

2007-01-02, 03:26 PM
((I should make a seperate thread, or something...))

Antony's mindscape appears to be a cave of black crystal, with some yellow, blue, and red lights visible within the stone. Most of these lights seem to come from a series of giant stalagmites in the center of the cave...

2007-01-02, 03:27 PM
Mhina shifts uncomfortably as she searches further into the cave.

2007-01-02, 03:32 PM
One of the spires lights not too far away turns from blue to red. Something moves in the area around the spire, though it makes no sound...

2007-01-02, 03:34 PM
Mhina makes her way toward it, readying a defensive spell just in case.

2007-01-02, 03:38 PM
The thing stops moving momentarily and turns around, looking at her with red eyes. The eyes suddenly appear in front of her, complete with a fanged and spiked visage of terror

Geeeeettt ooooouuut!

2007-01-02, 03:41 PM
Mhina tenses and lets out a little squeak, but scowls at the creature. I was tortured for two months straight. You'll have to do better than that.

2007-01-02, 03:43 PM
The visage grins, turning from a creature of horror to a vision of Lykan, being torn apart by giant maggots while he screams in horror

2007-01-02, 03:50 PM
Mhina shivers and takes a step back. She growls and bright light washes forth, illuminating the drab mindscape.

2007-01-02, 03:54 PM
The visage transforms into Antony, who grins lazily

Leave this place, mother. This place is not your own.

2007-01-02, 03:56 PM
She chuckles. You're not doing so great, there...why don't you face me honestly.

2007-01-02, 04:01 PM
Antony snarls, turning into a much more demonic version of himself

Idiotic overbearing witch! Get out before I shatter his soul!

2007-01-02, 04:04 PM
Mhina scowls. You will not. I won't allow it.

2007-01-02, 04:10 PM
Phobos smiles wickedly, the semitransluscent form of Antony suddely appearing in his hand. The demon waves a clawed hand around Antonies face

One false touch-

A clawed finger slices away part of Antony's ear, and he scream

Is all it takes. I can prolong the pain as well... Do you really want that for him, mother?

2007-01-02, 04:15 PM
Mhina frowns at the creature. Why should I believe you? You use images of terror to try to scare me away...what are you frightened of?

2007-01-02, 04:17 PM
Phobos grabs Antony tighter around the throat, holding a claw over his chest

I love it that you think that I'm bluffing.

2007-01-02, 04:21 PM
Mhina smiles dryly, Something tells me you'd rather tear me up and crush his spirit...so why don't you try it?

2007-01-02, 04:25 PM
Phobos smiles

I'm a sucker for suspense... I guess I thought you would beg first. Whatever.

A claw rips through Antony's chest, and he screams, a sound likely that no one's heard before. His form begins to fade as Phobos whistles jollily and rips the claw through Antony's lower torso

2007-01-02, 04:26 PM
Mhina freezes, paralyzed by shock.

2007-01-02, 04:32 PM
Phobos grins and his mouth grows to more then four times its size before he takes a bite of the side of Antony's head. He grins at Mhina

Something wrong? Oh right... I'm eating your son, how rude of me...

He offers te flayed soul to Mhina

You should have a few bites, he's quite tasty.

2007-01-02, 04:33 PM
Mhina lets out a shriek of rage and charges him.

2007-01-02, 04:52 PM
Phobos tosses the soul on the ground in front of him

I guess he's still savable... Maybe if you hurry.

He yawns and watches her charge, being sure to duck out of the way if the situation need it.

2007-01-02, 04:55 PM
Mhina spins down and kicks at his feet.

2007-01-02, 04:58 PM
He shatters into smoke and reappears behind Mhina, arms crossed

Hey... You're in MY head now. Get out.

Antony continues to fade from where he was dropped on the ground

2007-01-02, 05:00 PM
Mhina's eyes narrow as she moves quickly away from Phobos, but she approaches Antony instead, trying to check on him.

2007-01-02, 05:08 PM
Antony's soul seems to be losing form, strands of white and grey flowing from the holes Phobos made in him and dissipearing when they drift a few feet away...

2007-01-03, 11:06 AM
Commander Ac'tar's soldier runs into the woods and keeps going until he is far away from town.

2007-01-03, 11:12 AM
Regiji steps into the woods clad only in his odd armor, he glances around wearily as he tromps through the underbrush.

I've got his position narrowed down to about a kilometer radius. Unfortunately he isn't utilizing his Incarnum abilities to any great degree. It would make things much easier.

Regiji shoves a low branch out of his face.

"Do you suppose this is the same guy the head-squid burrowed into?"

Very likely due to the fact he didn't sub-jump in.

2007-01-03, 11:16 AM
The man keeps running.
((I don't mean to make him an interesting character. Either catch up to him and do whatever, or let him get away and never be seen again))
((And I've got to go for... about 8 hours. Later))

2007-01-03, 11:38 AM
((Aaahh. That takes all the fun out of that T_T))

I... I lost him.

"What do you mean you lost him?"

I mean I lost him. I don't have a bead on his position.

Regiji mutters something under his breath in an irritated tone.

"Fine. Sure. I guess I just go home and get dressed..."

Regiji stomps back into Town.

2007-01-03, 12:53 PM
Misty light continues to pour from Antony's body...

2007-01-03, 02:43 PM
Mhina attempts to fix it by pouring healing energy into him.

2007-01-03, 02:46 PM
The energy doesn't flow to his form, rather dissipating into the surrounding environment as though she had cast the power on the air

Tsk tsk... A shame, that. You don't know how to fix him.

2007-01-03, 02:55 PM
She stands, growling, her eyes glowing a bright purple. She glares at him. Tell me how...

2007-01-03, 02:58 PM
He grins

Why should I?

2007-01-03, 03:04 PM
She snarls, ice starting to surround the area. Because if you destroy him, I'll destroy you.
