I guess everybody always asks if they can change their loss, and the answer is always no. So I'm not going to ask that. I'm going to say my loss is literally headache-inducing and it makes me want to die.

I'm not totally sure how it works, either. It should be written down somewhere, because if I'm going to get punished for not doing something the Castle should have the decency to tell me I have to do it first. Right? I'm not being unreasonable here.

This place is ridiculous; I wanna form a support group or something. But I don't know if I'd want any of you to actually come, so maybe it would be a "me alone in the bar" kind of support group. I'm still deciding.

[And he thought he had it bad.]

The second one sounds less depressing.

More productive, probably.

[If he can't, someone should -- Wait, how old was she...]

In moderation.

[It did sound weird when he said it.]

I think it's French.

[See? Definitely French.]

Aside from the decoration?
gottaknockhard: (oh really?)


[personal profile] gottaknockhard 2014-08-22 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[...Oh. So she really didn't want to be alone.]

More than usual?
gottaknockhard: (watching)


[personal profile] gottaknockhard 2014-08-23 06:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I guess you get used to nice things.
gottaknockhard: (do I want to know?)


[personal profile] gottaknockhard 2014-08-26 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
...That is less subtle than normal.

[This should be the part where he reassures her, but he can't pretend that that's a good sign. When was the last time the castle left guns?]
gottaknockhard: (is that it?)


[personal profile] gottaknockhard 2014-09-06 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[What are they teaching kids these days? But now he's thinking about it. What else is he really doing right now...]

I can't blame you there.

[Walking alone, April may feel a slight breeze ruffling her hair. Beings that meld with the shadows themselves stalk her down the dark hallways of the castle, watching her... waiting to strike.

The thing controlling them is strong willed, and far more malicious even than the last master they served. It wants pain and it longs for suffering, and she has made the fatal mistake of wandering into their bloodthirsty path.

It's when she passes in front of a window, casting a shadow of her own outlined in moonlight, that the shadow demons descend. A sharp set of claws strikes from behind, though the first blow isn't meant to be fatal. That would be too kind.]

[The strikes come quickly after the first one, and the attack grows more and more vicious with each swipe, slicing deeper. A second shadow starts in on hers from the front, and she will feel every inch of the jagged fingers that puncture her chest as blood sprays out from the wounds.

She's caught in a sadistic, drawn out tug-of-war only visible in the shadows, and the last thing she'll see is the twisted puppet theater of her own demise.

[Bit by bit, the shadow demons rip apart the body, tossing it around like a ragdoll. April quite literally becomes the newest decoration to grace the walls of the castle, and there's nothing remotely subtle about the very deliberate display of power. All the same, Paradisa has plans for its new pets, and doesn't want them discovered just yet. Keeping to the shadows, they slink off to the forest to hide out until they are summoned again, though not before they sense a familiar presence - an inferior one that dared to bind them previously. It's enough to make them resist for a moment, but to no avail. Soon they're lost to the shadows of the trees, awaiting orders once again.]

Have you tried testing it to see what's causing it?
freeslider: (bewildered)


[personal profile] freeslider 2014-08-23 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
Why? Did you feel better after you cleaned?
freeslider: (friendly talking)


[personal profile] freeslider 2014-08-24 11:37 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't think I've ever heard of a loss like that, but then again, people don't always talk about their losses in general.

Maybe you could get someone to spill a bunch of stuff and then you can just clean up after them. See what that does.

[personal profile] freeslider 2014-08-26 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
It's only a little cleaning.
freeslider: (soft laugh)


[personal profile] freeslider 2014-09-11 05:53 am (UTC)(link)
[She couldn't help but laugh at utter absurdity of that idea]

Well, I'll give you points for originality, at least.
therealrisette: (What are you doing over there?)


[personal profile] therealrisette 2014-08-25 08:16 pm (UTC)(link)
You have a loss that punishes you for not doing something...?

[This is a new one for Rise. And she's been here a while. Of course, it's not like most people talk about their losses. ... Or can even remember what they lost, in some cases.]

How does that work? I mean, is there anything you do know? Maybe you just need a little help figuring it out.
therealrisette: (I don't even...)


[personal profile] therealrisette 2014-09-07 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
And that's your loss? Weird...

I mean, it turned me into a maid once, but that was only for like, a day or two! I don't really remember it that well, either...
therealrisette: (Pleased as (spiked?) punch)


[personal profile] therealrisette 2014-09-15 11:34 am (UTC)(link)
[That gets a giggle. Incoming perkiness in 3... 2... 1...]

It should! I think it does most of the time... I never really paid attention.

[There's a brief pause, and in a calmer voice:]

Oh, I'm Rise, by the way! How long have you been here?
