Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 27, 2007, 10:57pm

A little bare. A simple bed, closet for her clothing and a small table with drawers where she generally keeps her ammo, knife, and gun. A picture of her parents is on the table.

There's a punching bag on one side of the room.

"What?"

She opens the door.

"Oh, it's you Kelly, have you've visited the crazy russian woman yet?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 12:37pm

"No, is she up?" Kelly asks her, looking through wide eyes. "I didn’t know she was up yet! Or out of hospital…"

[Note: I need to get an edit made to the last post of the mission. They didn’t leave the town.]

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 12:41pm

"Not sure, between the sentinels and talking vending machines I didn't notice."

She rubbed her temple, upon remembering the talking vending machine.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 12:43pm

"I don’t think that I was around for the talking vending machine part." She gives a shake of her head. "Sounds a little creepy. Anyway, can I come in?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 12:46pm

"Mm, sure."

She lets her in, on the table is her gun, disassembled in the process of being cleaned.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 12:49pm

"Thanks!" Kelly skips in, smiling brightly. Her eyes fall right onto the gun.

"Oh, my." She averts her eyes as best she can, but they stray back to it a couple of times.

"I was just… well, you kinda got mixed up completely in our mess, when it has nothing to do with you. I’m really sorry about that."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 12:59pm

Noticing her eyes straying.

"It won't bite."

She turns to her.

"Don't, it's my own choice I'm sticking with you guys, instead of hightailing it somewhere else."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 1:00pm

Kelly drags her eyes away from the gun and looks to Darya again.

"Yeah, about that… I’m grateful – really, really grateful, but… how come?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 1:09pm

"Three reasons. Reason one was because I wanted a fight."

She takes the gun and inspects for cracks.

"Reason two is because jumping ship right when I've just settled here will suck, alot."

Cleaning the gun barrel.

"Reason three is that it seemed like the right thing to do."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 1:13pm

"The right thing to do…well, we appreciate the help," she says, latching onto Darya with a hug. "Thank you."

"Maybe we’ll actually get the chance to do something right soon. As soon as we fix everything with everyone."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 1:29pm

Darya, hugs back, a little awkwardly.

"Yeah… as soon as we're not fugitives anymore…."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 1:31pm

"Oh, that’ll be easy," Kelly says, letting go. "We just find the Avengers, or SHIELD or something and tell them everything, right? Then we’re fine. We just never seem to get the chance!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 1:47pm

"I don't think talking to SHIELD is such a good idea…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 1:56pm

"Why would it be?" Kelly asks, confused. "They’re the ones chasing us, who say that we’ve committed some crimes. If we straighten everything out with them, then we can fix everything!" She smiles optimistically.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 2:01pm

"They hired supervillains to catch us, I don't think they're as much interested in whether we're innocent or not as they're interested in catching and holding us."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 2:07pm

"Yeah, but they only send them ‘cause they don’t want us to hurt anyone ‘cause they think that we’ve hurt people but if we speak with them we could get this whole mess fixed up and oh! We could tell them about those horrible Prometheus people also and I bet they would fix that for us too and then we’d all be fine!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 2:14pm

She snorts.

"Wouldn't be too surprised if they're working together. I thought they were after us, because Carmen Roswell of whoever is in their organization."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 2:18pm

"I don’t know… I mean, Ms. Rosewell’s a pretty awful woman, and she’s really smart too. She’s probably tricking them or something… I really have no idea. I, uh… I was asleep when the Hellions fought her again. No kidding."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 2:24pm

"Asleep?"

She shakes her head.

"How regularly do we get into these kinds of fights?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 4:26pm

"I didn't mean to be asleep! The last time that we fought her, she hurt one of my firends really bad and threatened everyone I care about. I wouldn't have been asleep if I could have helped it, I just… didn't know anything was happening."

Kelly sighs and her shoulders slump; the near constant smile disappears from her face.

"Well, the Hellfire Club Hellions rarely got into fights, but since I came along here, it seems to be quite frequent."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 4:47pm

"We had two in two days… Not that I mind too much."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 4:47pm

"Why do you always say that you want to fight so much? You don’t seem to want to fight as much as you say you do. You seem much nicer than that."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 4:54pm

"Pfft. I fight because angry, very angry alot of the time and want to beat the crap out of people to release the said anger. It's just that we tend to fight crazier things like demons and Sentinels."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 4:55pm

Kelly steps towards her gingerly.

"Why are you so angry, then? That must be awful, to feel that way… you know… I can do something about the anger, if you don’t mind me doing it, that is…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 4:58pm

"No."

She says this rather plainly, with just a little bit of venom.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 4:59pm

Kelly flinches so slightly that it’s only just perceptible.

"Okay. Why are you so angry all the time, though?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 5:04pm

"Because my father was killed, and the last thing I told him was that he could go to hell. You do like asking personal questions don't you?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 29, 2007, 5:06pm

"Sorry. If you prefer, I’ll stop. I just… I don’t like seeing people that way. Being that angry usually means that you make yourself at least a little alone, too. Even when you’re surrounded by people – and that’s the worst kind of alone. I don’t want you to suffer in any way… I don’t want anyone to, so I just want to help in any way that I can," Kelly says softly, before repeating the first word she said; "Sorry."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 29, 2007, 5:19pm

Her voiced softened.

"Don't be, it's alright. You were only trying to help."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 30, 2007, 11:19am

"It's just… don't you feel… I don't know. I can't really do that sort of thing. Anger, you know? Not really. Not real anger, any lasting anger."

Kelly leans against the wall and slides down it, sitting on the floor. Pretty much a habit for her.

"But I know that other people have it. I can feel it through them, even when I don't want to - it's a part of what I do - but it just still feels so foreign, still. Something base and harsh. Just- just can't process it. Happiness is so much better. So much easier. It's just… simple, you know?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 30, 2007, 11:26am

«and gotta go.»

"Better for you then."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 30, 2007, 6:17pm

"Yeah, I guess… I don’t get why it can’t be the same for everyone else, though."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 30, 2007, 6:22pm

"Because the world isn't happiness and sunshine, and never will be."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jun 30, 2007, 6:25pm

That actually causes Kelly pause, and she falters for a moment, remaining silent. Then, in the next, she's smiling again.

"Then we have to make it that way. Somehow, someday."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jun 30, 2007, 6:32pm

"Stubbornly positive, heh. I suppose that's a good thing."

She snapped the gun back together and placed it to the side.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 1, 2007, 11:05am

She shrugs and carries on smiling cheerily.

"Well, someone has to be, right? Otherwise this place would get so depressing, so quickly… which it pretty much is already, what with all the running and stuff… only, it would be moreso. And that'd be pretty sucky."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 1, 2007, 4:25pm

She sits down on her bed.

"I don't really mind too much, pretty much used to running."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 1, 2007, 4:30pm

"You know… we really need to get you to the mansion. A real place to stay, not a mobile home the bus gives you. A real- real home again."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 1, 2007, 4:40pm

She gives a slight laugh.

"You mean school again?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 1, 2007, 4:43pm

"You wouldn’t have to do the school thing if you don’t want to. I think it’s fun, but… you could just be there. Just live there… a real place to stay," she says with that same, bright, cheerful smile. "Wouldn’t that be great? I mean- I know what it’s like to not have a home. It’s happened a couple of times to me, and you don’t know where to turn, you have nowhere to go to… but you do now! It would- it would be perfect! Right?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 1, 2007, 4:52pm

"I can't really picture myself staying in the mansion for more than a few years."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 1, 2007, 4:54pm

"Maybe you could surprise yourself. Just- just come and look at the place at some point? Please? It's better than not knowing where you'll turn next."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 1, 2007, 4:57pm

She takes a breath.

"Alright, alright, fine."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 1, 2007, 5:00pm

"Thank you!" Kelly latches onto her again.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 1, 2007, 5:01pm

She returns the hug, still a little awkwardly.

"Just don't get you hopes up, I say that, but you'll do it anyways…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 2, 2007, 4:00am

"I can’t help it. Thanks, Darya!"

With that, Kelly dashes out of the room.

She's going to hurt herself again…

After Cadmus room.

Darya is walking back, seeing some weird person in a spiderman costume knocking on her door. She reloads her gun.

"Not in the fucking mood!"

*Bang*
*Bang*
*Bang*

They were warning shots.


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 7:36pm

[It's just a slightly overweight person in a Spider-man costume.]

"Ow. Ow. Ow. My ears. My freaking ears! That how you greet everyone?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 7:39pm

"Fuck you! Fuck you and all this random bullshit!"

*bang*

Hits his hand.

"Get the fuck out of my face!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 7:41pm

"Ow. Ow. Ow."

A webline fires off from my wrist and hits the ceiling. I use it to pull myself off of the floor.

"Great. I come outta a storm, run into the nutty skrully skull depressed sadomasochist man, then try to get some help and get SHOT AT! Spider's luck, I swear… freaking spider's luck…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 7:42pm

She just walks into her room and slams the door shut.


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 7:44pm

"Aw, great."

I swivel from the webline, face the door again, and start rapping on it.

"You wouldn't turn Batman down! Man in serious need of medical attention here! Lemme in, Annie Oakley!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 7:45pm

Bullets shoot through the door, one missing his head by a centimeter.


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 7:48pm

I can't remember where I got these eye-pieces, but they've gotta be magic eyepieces. They widen as the bullet only just misses my head.

"Geez! Someone's got issues. Daddy probably didn't love her, or she got bullied as a kid or something…."

Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 7:59pm

Bat-spider can probably hear some muffled crying.

"No."


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 8:06pm

Did I just…?

… no…

No, I couldn't have.

That'd just be weird.

First we get the manically depressed token supervillain, then Annie Oakley crying up a storm.

Huh. How do you cry up a storm? Is that possible? Can you cry up a storm? Weird.

… no, no Dr. Phil-ing. Nope. None. Nada. Not a chance. I'm going to go in there, grab some pills, and then leave again.

Yep.

I open the door and, with a flick of the wrist, web her guns down before she can shoot at me.

"Hi. 'member me? I am the night. I am vengeance." Might as well go with it. I accidentally called myself it when speaking with Marvin the Manically Depressed Sociopathic Supervillain. "I am Bat-Spider. And… I've got a freaking hole in my chest. I think it was one of your friends that did it. Teeth for eyes, skrully skull staff. Crawled into his room to get out of the storm. So, I'm gonna grab some pills and be on my way."

I stop in the middle of the room. No Dr. Phil-ing.

"What's the problem, kid?"

Haa…


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 8:21pm

«You know, if you hadn't seen it before during Cadmus' room and during her dislocation of Val's shoulder I'm now taking the trained tiger thing rather seriously.»

"…"

She leaps from her bed screaming, on him in an instant.

Fist to the jaw, as his head swung to one side. She kneed him to the groin, enough to make any man buckle over, and as he did she got behind him, broke the bottle of Captain Morgan she was holding and grabbed him, holding the bottle to his neck.

"Give me one, one good reason why I shouldn't slit your throat right now."


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 8:25pm

"Ow… shoulda just taken the painkillers… Spider's luck, spider's luck…."

I drop to my knees, covering my groin with both hands. I pull myself together long enough to zip up to the ceiling.

"I'm Batman."

Another shot of webbing sticks her feet together.

"Your shoelaces are untied."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 8:31pm

She looks up at him, practically growling, still holding the broken bottle of beer in her hand. She looks almost feral, face flushed with tears.


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 8:33pm

"Y'know, you're reminding me a little of a hairy little buddy I have. Well, he's not so much a buddy as a punching bag. Actually, where the heck is he? I haven't seen him for an age…"

Another shot of webbing, and her feet stick to the floor. I drop from the ceiling.

"You not gonna go all Farah Fawcett on me again, are you?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 8:38pm

An piece of string wraps around his arm, she's about to break it, when she sighs and it ravels back on her arm. She awkwardly takes her shoes off, after a bit of effort and goes back to her bed.

"Just go. Take your fucking painkillers and go. Leave me the fuck alone."


Re: Darya's room
Post by dmc on Jul 14, 2007, 8:39pm

A webline zips the box of painkillers on the desk into my hand.

"Freaking loon… everyone in here hopped up on juice… freaking blew a hole in my chest… then this one shoots me…"

I hop out of the door.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 8:43pm

The door slams behind him.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 8:50pm

~Nightmare~

Well, that was simply quite delicious.

I could get enough anguish from this room alone. I wouldn't even have to visit the depressed little boy who ended himself.

Of course, the best way to do that would be a direct interaction. Speed the process along a little, too. Ripen the fruit before I pluck it.

After all, what's the point of descending on these children once again if they aren't suffering enough for me to permanently add them to my collection?

But this isn't the way to go about it. No, certainly not. A face she would trust… some glamour magic, and that's easily done. I'm not a telepath, so I don't know who she might trust. It doesn't matter. I shift my form to match that of one who she would trust, regardless.

And as it is, I appear behind her.

"Crying?"

Enough anguish to certainly submerge them all. Like I said, delicious.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 9:33pm

Two fingers.

Two fingers are flying towards his eyeballs before stopping.

"… Kelly?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 9:35pm

That's certainly interesting.

But not too surprising, I suppose. Oh, I wish I heard that girl scream when she went… it was so quiet, and boring, instead.

A matter for another time.

"Well, don't sound so surprised!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 9:40pm

She leaps from her bed, jumping backwards, getting some distance between them and just looks, unsure. One dead, another dead, one alive. This was getting too confusing, too fucked up for her.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 9:42pm

I turn my hand up, and look at her with surprise.

Fake, of course, but it does the job well enough.

"Aren't you happy to see me?"

This really is priceless. I wonder how hard it would be to really push her buttons.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 9:44pm

"This isn't real…"

She closes her eyes.

"This isn't real…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 9:46pm

"Isn't real?"

Since she can't see me with her eyes shut, putting anything into an expression won't do much. So I shift the tone of voice. Make it sound a little hurt.

"I'm not real?"

This is what'll get her. This bit - I make a note to remember it perfectly. I walk over to her and hug her. Like the little girl would.

"Don't say things like that…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 9:49pm

"I… I…"

She breaks the hug.

"You're dead! I saw you die and then I saw you die again! The biting Hugh Jackman, that spider man dickwad, the stupid fucking clown! What the hell is happening?!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 9:54pm

"Whatever you saw, it wasn't real. It couldn't be real, could it?" She broke the hug, sure, but I have no doubt that it got to her. It sounds like she might be close to getting hysterical soon, too.

I think I've said it before, but… delicious. Really.

I run my hand down her cheek.

"I'm perfectly alive, see? I'm sorry you had to see whatever you saw, Darya… but it wasn't me."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 9:58pm

"It… It wasn't you?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 9:59pm

"I'm right here, aren't I?"

I hug her again. It really is quite funny.

"It wasn't me, I swear."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 10:09pm

Not breaking the hug, she was crying again.

"… Kelly… oh god… I… What happened?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 10:12pm

"I don't know." A giggle. A disgusting sound, really. To me, at least. But it fits the character. And character - the role - the act, is everything.

I'm a master of it.

"I'm a little confused, actually. Well, really, a lot. I… think I went away? I kind of blanked. I was sitting in Ms. Petrovna's room, and then this weird darkness thing surrounded me, and then I just woke up a moment ago in her room, and it was empty."

I convey the faked confusion in my expression.

"I was hoping you could tell me what happened, actually…"

Then I notice the tears, and suppress a sigh of exasperation. Instead, I look at her with fake concern instead, and try to wipe the tears away.

"Oh, why are you crying? Please don't… please…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 10:19pm

"I'll stop. It's just…"

She wiped away her tears.

"You were dead, I saw you."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 10:22pm

"I don't know what you saw, Darya, but it wasn't me."

I consider moving to the bed to sit on it, but decide against it. Damn, what was the girl's power?

… ah, light. How fitting. And how infuriating.

A little seat forms behind me out of 'light', and I sit on it as a similar one forms behind Darya.

"What did you even see? I mean… it doesn't sound possible. Are you sure it wasn't a bad dream?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 10:31pm

"A bad dream… But it was so, no."

She shakes her head.

"You're alive."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 14, 2007, 10:33pm

"Yeah…" One of those irritating little cheerful smiles.

"I'm so sorry I worried you like that… all those tears were for me?"

Of course, I can't push her yet. Not properly. I have to wait until she feels safe in it.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 10:48pm

"Yes…"

She turned to her.

"There were so many things I didn't get to say. I'm sorry for all the times I snapped, I was being a total bitch. I… I…"

"Don't be like that." Ugh. How horribly cliched. My dialogue is better than that, isn't it?

"You weren't. You just… have some things that you needed to work through."

I tilt my head to one side in a perfect mimickry of the girl.

"What things did you want to say?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 11:06pm

"That I'm sorry, those fights, cleaning the gun in front of you, all those little moments. You wanted to know why I was angry? Right?"

She leans back.

"I wasn't angry because he died. I was… angry at myself. For running away, for telling him to go to hell, I never told him how much I loved him, how much he meant to me and when I came back he was dead. Sometimes I thought that maybe… maybe if I was there for him, he wouldn't have died, that I could've saved him. It was the same with you, I felt like I should have been there… to protect you… But you're alive. Thank god."

I need to find another word for 'delicious'. Of course, there are plenty, but none that describe it quite as… aptly as that one does.

That's what this is, plain and simple, and it doesn't seem to be getting any older.

Of course, all good things have to come to an end.

"Oh, Darya… I'm sorry you had to go through that. He must have known how much you cared. How much you loved him. Everything happens for a reason, Darya. Nothing would have changed if you were there. And if I had been dead, there would have been a reason for that, too.

"But I'm right here in front of you, aren't I?"

I hug her again. It's the last time. It's time to squash this. I smell her hair subtly… and while still holding onto her, I shift back into my normal appearance.

"Hush… hush… everything's alright."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 14, 2007, 11:20pm

"Y-You…."

Seeing Kelly transform, feeling her body change.

"You motherfucker…"

Her body unravels to string to slip out of his grip and move some distance back. White hot rage filled her entire body. A hand forms and flies to his nose, hoping to grip it, tightly and tear the thing off. She couldn't recognize him… yet, she didn't care who he was though.

She was going to kill him.

"Aw… I’m weal sowwy, Annie Oakley. What, she gets a hug, but when it’s li’l ol’ me you see, I don’t deserve one?"

I step to one side, out of the way of her hand, gripping it and using it to effortlessly hurl her against the room.

"Now, now… manners. There’s a way to behave, after all, and you’re not meeting those standards, missy. After all, you wouldn’t want to disappoint those you’ve left behind, would you?"

I smirk lightly, revelling in her distress. It really does flow off of her as readily as nectar (well, a slightly more dilute nectar. Real nectar is too thick to run off that readily), and it’s just as sweet.

I should have taken longer with this. Drawn it out. It would have made it all the more satisfying at the end.

"You really shouldn’t think about killing me, either. I mean, what kind of example does that set? Temper yourself, my dear."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 2:02pm

"Nightmare, you bastard!"

She took out her knife and charged at him, whipping her left arm, trying to wrap it around his arm and applying pressure to break it. At the same time she was trying to slash at his jugular.

"You did this!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 2:04pm

"I do a lot of things, my dear."

I grab onto her wrist and force it to return to normal, keeping the pressure on it and forcing the blade out of her hand, before flexing my arm and forcing her left arm off.

"What, specifically, are you referring to?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 2:11pm

A fluid movement, her left arm ravelled back, as she grabbed onto his left. Doing this, she hoisted her body up, using his, to ram both her feet into his chest.

"Everything! The clown, the hugh jackman, the fucking spiderman wannabe! But most of all you killed her!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 2:14pm

"Now, why would you think that any of this is me? I much more prefer flair, and this is all rather discernibly lacking in that. I didn’t kill her. I know who did, and to state the next, the obvious, I would be quoting a rather famous devil. Not from these parts, though."

I grab her legs and swing her into the wall.

"And, I did actually see her die. It was rather pathetic. Quick. She whimpered."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 2:25pm

Upon smashing the wall, she got up again. She felt her fist, it was numb again, she wouldn't be able to use it. She lunged again, unravelling her right, aiming to whip his quadriceps muscle to disable his right leg.

"You may have not have done it yourself, but you created the circumstance."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 2:28pm

"Stop."

With the word, she freezes in place.

"Your assumptions won’t get you anywhere. And that’s all you’re doing, you know. Making assumptions – ones that are fairly baseless. If I wanted her dead, wouldn’t I have done it while you were all in my realm?"

I snap my fingers, freeing her to move again.

"Now, this is the important part. The part that you have to remember."

I drop my voice slightly to punctuate my shift from general levity to… this. A more foreboding tone is fitting, so that’s what I choose. The tone rings aptly through the room.

"None of you are safe. No matter where you hide, no matter where you go… none of you are safe. I can smell your apprehension. Your regrets. Your anguish. It feeds me. It sustains me. It is my ambrosia. And you, my dear, are a delicacy that could last me an age if I so chose. The raw emotion that you generate… the rage…"

A finger flicks up from my right hand and I rest it on my cheek.

"But I’m digressing. That really isn’t what’s important here - what’s important right now. What’s important is… your transgression. Against me. You don’t fear. I’m not talking about the group as a whole; most of them know fear. You. Singular. Darya Potemkin. You don’t fear. Not really. Being a fear lord, you can see how that might irritate me… but I have a solution."

I give a dramatic gesture with my right hand, levelling it at her. Why? Because appearance is as important as everything else, and without flair? Well, things begin to get boring.

Boring is something that doesn’t suit me.

I point at her with the hand at the end of the extended arm.

"I am going to come for you. I am going to come for all of you. Individually, perhaps. Or maybe while you’re all together. It really does depend on my mood at the time. Maybe I’ll draw it all out. Make you truly suffer. Maybe I’ll just submerge you within my true means – into the depths of your souls… being human, you’re innately self-loathing. I wonder how that would end… how it would make you feel. Forced into the core of your soul – made to acknowledge your true, base existence. I wonder how many of you would feel sick to the stomach, disgusted by what you are. I wonder how many of you would be spurred to end yourselves as a result."

I turn from her and pace across the room, examining it. There’s an emotional spectrum colouring the walls. Too little of it is fear. There’s rage, mostly. Pure and concentrated. And… ugh, the girl tainted some of it. Spoiled a master-piece. Such a shame.

"If nothing else, you will know fear."

I turn around to face her again. Study her expression. She’s really quite a pretty girl. I wonder how quickly I’ll be moved to change that once I get bored of them. Cut a few strips of skin off here… remove the flesh to bare the bone beneath there….

"You won’t go like your friend, though. I’m not that generous. It won’t be that… quick. Certainly, the pain you will feel will be far less… physical, but it will be notable all the same. … Damn it. I wish I had heard her scream."

I sigh and lower my head. I’m becoming longwinded in my old age. It’s an entertaining notion – but one that is ultimately irritating when I’m trying to get a point across.

"I apologise. I’m allowing myself to get sidetracked again. It’s a fault I’ve developed after living for so long. It leads one to tend to run off on… tangents. Not the most fitting of traits."

It also necessitates an unseemly amount of backtracking. Fairly irritating in all.

"So where was I? Ah, yes. You will all know fear. You, especially. You will be stripped to the bone – stripped bare of everything you are, and everything you have. I will take everything and everyone you care about from you, and make you watch the deaths of those you care about that have already leaped from this mortal coil. Again, and again, and again. I’ll do it until you concede. Until you become my concubine. Perverse, you may think, but I would imagine that there’s nothing quite like one who wholeheartedly rejects fear being contracted to it entirely. And since the first among you who fulfils that category is dead already, and the only other who is freely available here, the Masstress… well, I just haven’t studied her deeply enough to know how suitable she is. I know she’s feisty and rather courageous, but that’s as far as my knowledge of the young Masstress takes me. I think, out of the two I’ve looked deeply into, I’d prefer you anyway. The other disgusted me somewhat. But… you don’t need to be alive to be contracted to me. Or sane. A wraith would do well enough."

My finger goes back to my cheek, and I begin to wonder how disturbed she is at this point. Frankly, the more the better, and if she isn’t quite there… well, I could force it if need be. But it’s just like sugars and artificial sweeteners. The artificial is never quite as sweet… or quite as satisfying.

"But I’m perfectly content to drive you fully into the depths of insanity first. It would definitely be entertaining. And I think that making you watch those for whom you care and cared die repeatedly would be enough to do just that. Maybe I’ll mix it up a little, just to keep it fresh. Make the deaths occur by your hand every now and then. Don’t you think that would be fitting, Darya? After all, you should have saved them. You should have protected them… but you didn’t. You failed. You weren’t even there. What kind of friend are you? What kind of daughter are you?"

I spit at her feet and look at her with mock rage running fluid and livid across my face.

"A pathetic one, that’s what."

I turn away from her again, certain that I’ve driven the point home. It’s not true. I know that much, but as long as she thinks it is, that’s all that matters. It’s enough to make her susceptible to fear. To plant the seeds of fear. Of hate.

"Look at you. Just turn around and glance in a mirror. You’re a mess. A complete and utter wreck. You’re barely functional. What state do you think you’d be in after I’m done with you?"

I pause for a moment, to allow everything that I've said to sink in. A few moments to let her know just how deep she, and all of her friends, are. It should be enough.

"But I think I have a solution for that, too."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 2:46pm

«Darya Potemkin, You have the ability to overcome great fear.»

She lies there still, defiant. Her face still etched into rage, her eyes still flaring. Although the emotion spectrum shown in the room betrays some deeper thoughts. She only says four words.

"I will kill you."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 2:50pm

[That did occur to me while writing that :).]

"You will try, if it comes to that. And you’ll fail. And you’ll become mine, at any rate. No matter how things turn, you’ll lose. I am offering you an out here, girl. And a boon – a limited one, so be careful what you choose. The choice is yours to make."

I snap my fingers and a contract appears in my hands.

"Will you doom yourself and your entire team, if not the world, or will you take my offer?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 3:10pm

Her face was still in the same scrowl, but her spectrum shifted, fear, doubt. It was clear she was considering. After several minutes, she spoke.

"What exactly does your offer grant?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 3:13pm

"A freedom from what will come. A place at my side – a place of power, and a hand in the movement of ages that will drive the tide of this world’s destiny. You will become a master of your own fate, and you will have a hand in guiding this world as it may move. All you have to do is turn on your ‘friends’ when I come for them."

I step forwards, presenting the contract to her with a flourish. Another snap of my fingers and a pen is in her hand.

"And one boon. A limited one. Remain sensible with it; some things, I cannot grant."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 3:23pm

"… Tempting."

She steps forward holding the pen to the paper. He could help her find Kelly's murderer.

"But you know what? The at your side thing. You see, I hate your guts. So instead…"

She moves to jam the said pen in his eye.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 3:27pm

I grab a hold of the pen and force it out of her hand like I did the blade. Twirling her around, I cross her arms across her front, holding her in front of me with her back to me, whispering into her ear.

"Silly girl. You’re turning down the chance for your friend back. All you have to do, is, clichéd as it sounds, join me. You could be great. The world would shape itself at your whim. The possibilities are endless."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 3:49pm

Her eyes shut, her emotional spectrum going haywire. Fear and doubt are seeking in.

"Kelly…"

After a minute she opened them, clearly pained.

"Do you know what my name means?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 15, 2007, 3:52pm

"In Russian? Poorly translated, the maintainer of justice. Of good. Tell me, was what happened justice? You could have it reversed. Undo it. You could mete out ‘good’ and justice as you understand it, maintaining and upholding it at all times. You could do right by your father, and you could fulfil his wishes and the prophecy of his name. You could even bring him back instead of the girl. It’s. Very. Simple. So, very easy."

I lower my voice to a whisper.

"Just sign."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 15, 2007, 4:12pm

"… Just sign…"

She says this weakly as she starts signing her name, clumsily, since she's using her left hand. After a few minutes her name gets messily scrawled onto the paper and she drops the pen.

"A wasted boon. Just remember that you asked for it."

It’s certainly well within my power. I close my eyes and focus on it for a moment – and a moment is all it takes.

I snap my eyes back open in the next.

"Done. Now, see… was all of that really that hard? I’ll be back for you. And perhaps once or twice otherwise. Now, I believe it’s traditional to blink."

She does, mostly under compulsion from me. When she opens her eyes again, I’m gone, and she’s alone in her room.

I don't understand what she's saying… but it's obvious that she's hurting badly from something, and I won't let her think of herself like this. I won't let her believe these lies she's telling herself. But what can I do to help when I have no idea what's really wrong?

I hug her again, squeezing tightly as I begin to tear up.

I really don't feel comfortable leaving Darya alone like this, especially right now, when she seems to be in such a bad state.

Since I don't really know what I could do for her, I take the excuse of having questions, and use it to not leave her to herself.

"I don't understand yet. Jesse told me that I died… and I can't understand how that could be true, but I think it must be, because I… remember things…. I just don't see how I could be here if I had died. How am I here? Why am I here?"

"You know… I actually hope there isn't… because I'm positive that if there were, I'd just fall short."

I shake my head again slightly.

"It doesn't matter right now."

"I suppose. I mean, there's not really anything I can do to find out. No-one has any idea. So if I can't find out, then it doesn't really matter. There are more important things."

I look up at Darya.

"Are you sure you're alright, Darya? When I came in, you seemed, well… at the least, depressed."

"I already told you, I'm alright."

It doesn’t seem likely, but she’s going to know better than me. I’m still hesitant to leave, but… if she’s not going to tell me, then what can I do?

"If you say so, Darya. I’ll be back later. Please… please don’t drink any more. It isn’t good for you."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 19, 2007, 1:49am

"I won't."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 19, 2007, 1:50am

"Thank you."

I slip back out of the room.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 19, 2007, 1:54am

As soon as she gone she takes out another bottle of Captain Morgan. She stares at it for a few moments, before setting in back.

"Great now I'm going to have to go through my self-loathing straight."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 4:56pm

Darya sat on her bed, looking at her suitcase. She grabbed one or two sets of clothing, her gun, knife, and a picture of her family, along with some food. Everything else can stay behind, she travelled light.

She didn't know when she was planning to leave, but it was probably soon.

"Well it had to happen sometime…"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 27, 2007, 5:00pm

I know Darya can be abrupt, but I didn't expect her to be that abrupt earlier. And she was depressed before… well, I wouldn't be a good friend if I just left it.

I knock lightly on the door.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 5:05pm

The suitcase was under her bed and she had another cigarette in her hand.

"Come in."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 27, 2007, 5:07pm

I push the door open and float in.

"Hey, Darya!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 5:09pm

"Hello."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 27, 2007, 5:10pm

"Are you okay? You seemed a bit more abrupt than usual earlier, and, well… is there anything I can do?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 1:21am

"Probably nothing, maybe take away the drinking ban."


Re: Darya's room

Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 7:02pm

"Good."

She grabs the half empty Captain Morgan and drinks a quarter of it down, before putting it to the side.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 7:03pm

I watch her through sad eyes. It's not exactly hard to tell that there's something specific wrong, but I can't do anything if she won't tell me.

"Darya, I know something's wrong."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 7:12pm

"Oh really?"

She takes another gulp.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 7:16pm

"Yes. But… I don't know what. And that's the problem. I want to help you, but I can't as it is."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 7:23pm

"Fine, I backstabbed the team, sold all of us out to Nightmare, and the only reason you're still around was because he was stupid enough to give me a weapon that could hurt him badly. So it's finally time to jump ship and leave."

She takes another gulp.

"Do you miss it? Being in Heaven?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 7:26pm

I latch onto her in a hug.

"Darya, don't leave, don't leave, please, don't leave!"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 7:35pm

… can't drink like this.

"Why not?"


Re: Darya's room

"… I'll cry if you do…."

Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 7:43pm

"No I wouldn't…."

I let go for a moment so I can look at her.

"Why would you leave, anyway?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 7:46pm

"What? Backstabbing everyone isn't a good enough reason."

Another gulp, the Captain Morgan's all gone.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 7:48pm

"No! It isn't! Everyone makes mistakes, Darya! And- and I'm sure you had a reason for it! No-one would hold it against you, Darya, and you beat Nightmare."

I grab her hands, putting the bottle down, literally pleading now.

"Please, Darya. You're my friend, and I don't want to lose you."


Re: Darya's room

"Will you just stop? Your reason that you're leaving is because you betrayed us, but I don't believe you would've done that without a reason, and why does it matter if you obviously regret it so much, which means that you wouldn't do it again, and if we would forgive you for it anyway?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 8:44pm

"It'll happen again, either I betray someone or let them die."

There's another bottle here somewhere…


Re: Darya's room

"Yep."

Ah ha! There it is!

Re: Darya's room

Re: Darya's room

She takes a gulp and lies on the bed. Not really answering.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 9:28pm

"You can't just keep on drinking and ignore me. Don't just ignore me… please, Darya. Why- why did you do it, anyway? You must have had a reason."

Re: Darya's room

She didn't agree for the power. I refuse to believe that.

"What was the boon?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 9:52pm

She just looked at her.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 9:53pm

And… she's just looking at me. Is there something I'm not getting?

"Darya?"


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 28, 2007, 10:03pm

She looks away.

"You."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 28, 2007, 10:07pm

"Me…."

It takes a moment to settle - rattling in my head for that moment, registering it. Digesting it. I almost feel stupid for taking that long to get it…. But I don't. Because I don't see why someone would do that for me.

I latch onto her in another hug. I won't cry, though. I won't.

"You did that for me? Darya… I'm not worth that… I'm not worth the sacrifice. The torture you're putting yourself through. The misery that I can see on your face. None of it." A few tears come out, falling onto her shoulder, and I shut my eyes to stop any more from coming.

"Thank you… thank you, so much…."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 29, 2007, 2:44am

She sat there for a few moments, not saying anything.

"….You're worth more than you know, more than me."


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 29, 2007, 9:55am

"No… no, just stop."

I move my head back slightly and shake it, but I don't let go of her yet.

"I can't believe you did that for me…."

"Even more reason?"


Re: Darya's room

Re: Darya's room
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 30, 2007, 3:19pm

"When Joshua hacked into the Cerebro files he found this."

She shows her a photo of a boy wearing a tuque and a zip-up hoodie. You can see an unpleasant scowl on his face as well as slicked back, jet black hair with deep brown eyes and a bit of chin fuzz.


Re: Darya's room
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Jul 30, 2007, 3:23pm

I glance at the picture - study it, but I don't really know what I'm looking at. I don't recognise him in the least.

"Who is he?"

[Just a check - this is okay with Mike, right?]
