    Nah, I'm probably not writing anything until Wednesday, or until I finish this book for class, whichever comes first. Okay, Ace, why are you hanging around then instead of studying? Good question! Because I'm sitting at a bus stop freezing my tail off. x3x Edit: ohthankgod it's here

    Do we think the guard bought it, it that there's a chance for me to do more selling? Orr does the shit got the fan here? (I could roll for it if y'all enjoy leaving things up to chance, haha)

    Feedback - RP Etiquette: Magic

    I wouldn't hate a bit of expansion, such as on possible sources of magical power. I know that any elaboration you give wouldn't be able to be exhaustive because it's an open world, and that's why you tend not to go into further specifics, but a little more detail might provide structure that people can use to understand and thus get imaginative?

    I don't--- I don't know how much of this is a joke? 🤐

    Not to incite panic or anything, but I just got over a sore throat thing that lasted for literally a month (and was bad enough to keep me out of work for most of that time.) 😧 So, hopefully it's the mild kind!

    Nooooo @Rin, I'm creeped out too. We can build a blanket fort.

    Also whatever @Grand Mainframe is doing is super funny and creepy and I love it, but also just good PR because I'm so tuned in to find out what's coming.

    LOLOL I'm dying. Springboarding with my husb. about how to get into an ESTP's head for Levi and apparently the metaphor that works is: Beverly Hills Cop + Zootopia + Peppermint Patty + Edward Elric. Wrap your head around that one~
  12. Homework abounds. RP will resume on Wednesday.

    Ain't that just the way

    Levi started to volunteer for the job of the distraction; The twiggy young woman would hardly pass as a guard, even in disguise, but she was fast enough to get out of a scrape. She opened her mouth to say this, but the words would never make it past her lips. Jericho interrupted with a sudden, mighty stomp that broke several of the dead merchant’s teeth with an audible crunch. The sound turned Levi’s stomach. She hastened to the closed door and pressed her ear against the carved mahogany panel, happy to give this display some space. Levi wasn’t shy about their purposes here, but some things were just too gr- “What the hell?” She’d turned her head to warn him off the noise and, from over her shoulder, saw what Jericho was doing then. It was the luminous, green glow bathing his face that had stopped her. Levi had known that Justice’s leader was a sorcerer. He’d revealed that much when he recruited her. But some things...things like necromancy, you didn’t fully grasp the horror of until you witnessed it in the flesh. She watched, repulsed and astonished, as this tall, bumpkin-looking man lifted his hand and raised Velleh’s body from the ground. “Wait, wha---Really?” Levi stepped away from the door with both hands held out, palms-up, before her, and looked dubiously at Jericho. Then her gray eyes shifted to the body of Velleh Ah’bjyd. Surreally, Velleh seemed to look right back at her: His irises centered, his pupils locking straight onto her own. The macabre vision made the hairs on the back of her neck stand upright. It wasn’t the fine, clean slash across his neck or the coat of blood still glistening down to his sternum that chilled her. Standing there seemingly on his own, he seemed almost a conscious man. Almost. There was some minute detail: His head cocked at just a degree or two off center, the limbs a bit too still at his sides. Those tiny differences--mere slivers, but uncanny because of their closeness to the margins--that unsettled Levi. But she acted. They didn’t have the luxury of hesitation; If jefe said this was the plan, then she’d spring to it. Levi studied the room, face set, grim and calculating. The large room seemed to have two distinct sections: A sitting area, where they stood now, with a chaise lounge and two tall winged-back chairs forming an arc around a cold, dry fireplace; and a kind of sideboard or service area against the far wall--a space where the needs of the occupants might be handy but out of the way. There was a wide credenza bearing refreshments, a sweating carafe of water and a bottle of wine that had been opened to breathe, as well as an empty tea set. In the corner stood an elegantly carved hat rack or coat rack, and another door that might have led to a kitchen or butler’s catwalk. On the rack, Levi spotted a long, delicate swathe of embroidered gold fabric, like a veil or a headscarf. “Matte, get that. We can use it to conceal his throat” she pointed as she crossed back to where the second guard lay face-down in the carpet. Levi squatted and pulled that knife back from its sheath with her right hand, lifting the fabric of the guard’s clothing away from his back with the left. With little effort she cut a large scrap from the tunic and, re-stowing the blade, brought it back to where Velleh.. stood… She wadded the remnant up like a hand towel and used it to mop up the excess blood from his neck and clothes. Luckily, Velleh had received them today dressed as one would expect from the obscenely rich and vainly opulent; the luscious crimsons, wines and violets of his silk clothes only looked a bit brownish with blood, not a gory bright red swiped across a canvas of whites or creams. "We'll need to hide the other bodies," she added, working with the calm detachment of someone who'd done this before. In Casper she'd worked with corpses. At least with this one, she didn't have to worry about getting infected from the blood. "We don't want someone to find them while we're still being--escorted off the grounds."

    Think it's reasonable that Velleh might have a kind of head scarf that he would occasionally wear given the climate? Like a keffiyeh or an agal, but possibly of exquisite fabric?

    Will do! Oh man I wanted Santa Clarita to be good. I thought it started off funny... Didn't make it past the second or third episode though 😞

    Yeah Pittsburgh is campaigning hard to attract a film industry, pushing tax breaks and so on. Parts of The Dark Knight Rises and Jack Reacher were also filmed here

    @supernal I generally think Fincher is one of the best~ Maybe that's what I was getting at when I said Netflix had like... An algorithmic anti-Midas touch. It felt like they got their hands on it somehow, and declawed it or made it feel... Mass-market somehow. Anyway! Not important, because you're right, opinions are just opinions~

    I almost went to a casting call for MH s2. They film it here 😎

    Grace and Frankie < 333 I guess I'm kinda picky. Mindhunters and House of Cards sat at a steady "eh.... Could have been good, missed the mark" for me. Just feels lackluster and (Mindhunter, anyway) mildly overproduced. I have been recommended Big Mouth by so many people~ and altered carbon is actually on my watchlist.

    Good day for The Way! Figure since I'm conspicuously hitting up the chat thread I should touch base. I'm having a pretty lousy mental health day and I'm more of a morning person creator anyway. Y'all mind if I get to it this weekend?

    Like I thought Maniac was actually incredible. And they did a decent enough solid to the animated Castlevania series. Trollhunters was also charming and enjoyable. But scroll the full Netflix Original selection sometime........ 😒

    @supernal yeah I think there are two flavors of Netflix content at this point. Generally good (but not necessarily outstanding) content from known creators because Netflix is heavy into investing capital... And algorithm generated, talentless Jell-O that Netflix invested in because is heavy into the "throw a hundred darts, one of them should hit" studio model.
