Bodhi Jones 10/15/19 Text: Mackenzie
I miss the Sun.

Text: Mackenzie
I'll see you then.
I'll be the pale, sickly looking one.
Jameson Orlav 10/11/19 Mother
Bishop and I are going away for a little while.
I need you to watch the kids.
... Liam will be here, but.
Just make sure I don't come back to a bunch of dead kids.
Gyldi 10/11/19 -ghostly glare-
Jameson Orlav 10/11/19 Mother
... So I am going to need a favor.
Melinoe 10/10/19 Mack
You're the greatest.
Love ya, Mack.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
...if you must know, I'm at the airport.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
You flatter me.
I'm not the intoxicating one, here.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
I bet it was hot.
I'll be counting the minutes.
And I expect a reenactment.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
Don't tempt me.
I'll be on a plane as soon as you say the word.
I don't think Richard's suicide mission would benefit much, though.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
...like those dipsh-ts that collect shot glasses.
I dig it. Let's do it.

Mackenzie Darling
You know I love you.
I love you more than anything in this entire world, including myself, so.
I just also miss the f-ck out of you.
Jasper Thompson 10/10/19 Mackenzie Darling
You did not, yet. I'll take what I can get.
...you don't like my eyepatch?
I'm not wearing someone else's false eye.
Plus, they're creepy.
Melinoe 10/10/19 Mack
It's cause he likes you!
I promise that he isn't judging, not that it would matter to you. Right, Mack?
If he ever bugs you, just tell him to go home, okay?
Bodhi Jones 10/10/19 A light frown touches his mouth at mention of Claire, as the last time he saw her, she seemed in a stupor, unable to raise her redeemed gaze to his face. Her spirit is squashed here, and more than once, he'd insisted Gray leave him to his own devices and tend to the poor girl.

Text: Mackenzie
She certainly isn't herself here, and Gray is keeping an eye. I know he feels guilty bringing her back, but the weight of the danger was apparently heavier. I don't blame him; I hope she doesn't either.
My door is always open, and the kettle and almost always going. You are welcome anytime. Guilt is definitely a word for it, along with a certain posessiveness that, on my part, probably isn't warranted. I'd love to pick your brain.
Hilarious, as Gray is certainly jealous of you. If it weren't so painfully confusing, it might be genuinely amusing, but as it stands, I don't pretend to understand.

Text: Mackenzie
A cheeky one, I see, and conquer I shall.
You are a blessing, my dear. Thank you again.
Bodhi Jones 10/10/19 There is a part of him that hadn't expected a response. Asking a relative stranger such personal questions doesn't often yield satisfactory results, and Mackenzie didn't know him much further than being a member of her allied crew and the seemingly flimsy love interest to a guy she made no secret of disliking.

The relief is palpable, indeed.

Bodhi reads the message thoroughly, committing it to heart and mind, so as to utilize it later. Talk to him, she says; if only it was that easy. The man isn't keen on any conversation involving this Jasper, not that Bodhi could blame him. He doesn't want to accuse, only understand. But, in this place, with his ghost...

Text: Mackenzie
Between you and me, I wish we wouldn't have come here.
Thank you for your honesty, Mackenzie, you didn't owe it to me. The girls think very highly of you, so I hope you don't mind me bridging the gap, if only to talk about a potentially mutual problem. I don't presume to know your half of the situation, but should you need a sympathetic, unbiased ear, the bridge does go both ways.
You should know (and by proxy, Jasper), that I am not trying to replace him, or force him out of Gray's life. But there is a bitterness there that poisons many aspects of Gray's being, and if it should be addressed, I suppose I'm in as good a position as any to be doing it.
Wish me luck.
And patience.
Bodhi Jones 10/10/19 He'd gotten the message; he'd just been in a rare mood.

With a sigh that sent a silver haze round his head, Bodhi smiles over at Sarah's dozing form on the couch, bag of chips perched in her lap with one halfway to her slack mouth. A laugh then, and he reaches a gentle hand to close it, lest she wake up covered in drool.

With a much clearer mind, he whips out his phone and finally sends his thanks. And an apology of his own.

Text: Shrew

One eyebrow raises in question as he seeks out the memory of Gray adding a short list of numbers to his phone, emergency ways to find him, Bodhi supposed, should he be...unfindable, for one reason or another. This one had been added begrudgingly, he remembers; at least he had the tact to add the new wife and not the old ex. His mouth pulls up at the corner and he shakes his head, fixing the contact before continuing on his way.

Text: Mackenzie
I appreciate the offer. I hate to break it to you, but this Henri knows all your hiding spots, pointing out a slew of drugs and what looks like assorted candies. As I can't imagine that you have a sweet tooth, these have remained untouched.
And out of Sarah's reach, as well.

He ponders the rest of the message, setting it aside and taking a few more contemplative pulls from his meditative cigarette. With a sigh that has nothing to do with expelling his lungs, he continues.

Text: Mackenzie
I don't fault your husband, not really. As such, I hope you don't fault me asking...
Should I be concerned? You live this, you see how they are, and I have no doubt this man's love for you, or any interest in prying into your personal life.
I'm asking for an unbiased answer, not from their sisters, from someone who doesn't idolize this man, deserving as he is (though you might disagree.)
And perhaps I can't get that from you either, considering the nature of this question and the fact that I'm trying to hold a candle to your husband, but...
(Yes, I could edit this message, but I feel it important you get all the smoke-induced ramblings; it really promotes how much I've been turning this over in my head, so I can appeal to you to put me at ease.)
Can I hold a place here, in these people's lives. In Gray's life?
Tell me truthfully if you think I can fill this void.
Please.
Jasper Thompson 10/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
I always notice you're gone.
When you return, then.
A week of you, all to myself.
No interruptions.
Jasper Thompson 10/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Those hipsters are pretty dodgy these days, you never know...

Mackenzie Darling
Best.
Wife.
Ever.
You're sure you have to go?
Jasper Thompson 10/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Definitely seen that one.

Mackenzie Darling
Something exotic, perhaps.
Never before seen type sh-t.
And you, in one piece.
That, above all else. Love you, sh-thead.
Jasper Thompson 10/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Oh? Well, make sure he doesn't succeed then.
Have fun, and bring me back something I've never seen before.
Not chlamydia.
Wait...

Mackenzie Darling
Never mind.
Melinoe 10/07/19 Mack
Is Chuck causing you any trouble Mack?
I can get his right now if you need me to!
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 "You're a royal pain the ass, you know that?"
grits teeth-
-lets out a defeated sigh-
"I can't promise anything. So. Good luck."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 -pinches bridge of his nose-
"You don't have to do that. I will be fine."
-watches her-
"I don't need another party getting involved."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 "So you want me to accidentally kill your members? Because they never seem to leave me the F-CK alone."
-grumbles to self-
"Dramatic? You're the one who decked me..."
touches jaw-
"I am going, alone or not. This isn't just about me. My wife. My kids. I need to know they are alright and you aren't going to stop me."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 -gets back up-
"Reassess?! What I can assess is that I am getting worse just sitting here, twiddling my f-ckin' fingers."
-nostrils flare-
"They did something to me. I don't know what, but I kill people just by them looking at me. You really want that around here?"
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 -takes it right in the jaw-
-falls back-
"WHAT THE F-CK?!"
-rubs at spot-
"What is with you people and going for the FACE?!"
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 -leans down-
-narrows gaze-
"Plans. Change."
-rolls eyes-
"I'm not helpless. I survived that place once, I can do it again."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 -clenches jaw-
"You aren't grasping what I am saying."
-locks gaze with her-
"I am leaving. I don't plan on coming back. I do appreciate everything you have done but you don't have to worry about me anymore. Whatever is waiting for me in California, I will deal with it."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 "Oh right, let me just look it up on google. Think I will get results with 'weird cult facility in LA'?"
-always so snippy-
"Unless you have a magic crystal ball that can tell me who they are, all I have to go off of is LA."
Richard LaMonte 10/07/19 "Well I wasn't about to run out in the middle of that whole mess."
-readjusts backpack-
"Not a clue who they are, where they are or how to find them. I hadn't gotten that far yet."
Winter Fitzpatrick 10/07/19 "Some woman approached me an' pointed yeh out t'me. Sorry my story isn't more interestin' than tha. Look, I aren't lookin' to bother yeh, it was jus' a fun coincidence that your, ummm, "family motto" is inked on me arse. But I'll be leavin' ya now to y'business, Mackenzie."

Winter drops his hands from the finger quotes they were making.

"Mackenzie? Y'know, I think I got yah name on me somewhere too. Met a fine young lass by t'name of Mackenzie when I were drinkin' in Cork wit' me brothers. I'm sure it were Mackenzie. Though, get a few jars down me an' my memory goes right up the swanny. But I ain't gonna bore us both tryin' to figure out where she is on me body. Showin' me arse is one thing, but it'a take more than tha' for me to strip naked."
Kira Garrett 10/06/19 Mackenzie
Thank you for this distinguished honor?
Roman Godfrey 10/06/19 Boss
I like the way that you think.
You're an evil genius. I respect and admire that.
Kira Garrett 10/06/19 Mackenzie
It's in a plastic bag with tongs, so yes.
I can't believe I'm walking around with this.
You're so lucky that I like you.
Roman Godfrey 10/06/19 Boss
I'm happy to assist, whenever I can. After all, you have always been so generous to me.
I hope you know that everyone will be getting a balloon on their door.
Beep, beep.
Kira Garrett 10/06/19 Mackenzie
I can't stand you.
Damn you, Mack.
...Yes, I am.
Roman Godfrey 10/06/19 Boss
I suppose that can be arranged. Send me the specifics and I'll get someone on it immediately.
Kira Garrett 10/06/19 Mackenzie
Nope. Nah. No way.
Please tell me that it doesn't belong to Jasper. Or I will never be able to look him in the eyes again.
Averly Amoret 10/06/19 Boss Lady
Truly vile, those things are.
But maybe they were cold?
Kira Garrett 10/06/19 Mackenzie
Please tell me that you're talking about the kind of hammock that you sit in...
Roman Godfrey 10/06/19 Boss
You say that like money is an issue.
I do appreciate the heads up.
Hope all has been well.
Averly Amoret 10/06/19 -rolls up the too large sleeves of a men's sweater-
-types out-

Boss Lady
Oh wow, you don't say? That's so strange.
Who does that?
Winter Fitzpatrick 10/06/19 Winter pulls up his jeans and buckles. Far more people had seen far more of his body in public before. What's the point in so much ink if you don't plan on showing it off.

"Don't go mentionin' those b*stards 'round me and mine, now." he warned and, while smiling, his eyes said something else entirely.

"Ya'walk intuh'town wit' no fixed address an' all sorts a'folk come tellin' ya'where yuh'should be callin' home. So, yeah, Sine Metu gets a mention now an' again. As does you, Mackenzie."
Winter Fitzpatrick 10/06/19 It's not that Winter was already unbuckling his jeans before she asked, but one could be forgiven for believeing that to be the case. No sooner had her request been made was the man turning to face away from her and pulling down his trousers. His buttcheeks, as with the rest of his body, were covered in tattoos of names, places, stupid characters, and more. More than he was sure he was aware of. And right there, between the names 'Lydia' and 'Steve', a poorly drawn four-leaf clover, and the word 'Paddy', was the tagline Sine Metu in fancy font across his pert, right cheek.
Winter Fitzpatrick 10/06/19 "Y'know, I got a Sine Metu tattoo on me arse. One too many whiskey chasers last time I were home in Dublin. Felt like a right bellend when I woke up next morn, and now I hear it on t'lips of far too many folks here in New York. You get drunk too? Or jus' a fan o' t'good stuff?"
Richard LaMonte 10/06/19 -shakes head-
"Nope. No clue. But I'm not accomplishing anything sitting in these tunnels, am I?"
-didn't mean to come off so rude-
-sighs-
"Look, I appreciate what you've done for me but the longer I stay, the more questions I get. Missing time, shadow things killing themselves from the mere sight of me, it's all stacking up. I can't keep hiding."
Richard LaMonte 10/06/19 -squints-
"Do you not remember when we first met? LA is where answers are."
-shakes head-
"We both knew this was temporary."
Richard LaMonte 10/06/19 -adjusts backpack on shoulder-
-looks especially grumpy today-
"Well it's been real, but I think it's time I went to LA."
Kira Garrett 10/05/19 Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
You’re a bad b*tch,
And I love you
Katherine Murray 09/30/19 Well, that certainly brought her to attention.

”Well then, Mackenzie, I’ll be sure to inform them that they do not , in fact, exist.” The coolness in both her words and cerulean gaze was probably one that hadn’t made an appearance in a number of years; despite the fact that she knew it was the best thing for her, to snap her out of this sh-t, irritation still made itself known across pale visage. Katherine knew there were other things on her Irish’s mind, but that didn’t stop a huff from escaping or her feet to turn, to remove her from the other woman’s presence.

But, of course, she wouldn’t take that step, no, she would roll her eyes heavenward before turning back to one of the only people she knew would always have her back.

One of the only ones that Katherine would go to hell and back for.

”Oddly enough, I thought they were sent for me. What do you need me to do?”
Katherine Murray 09/27/19 Well, this was going to be embarrassing; since the planned, unplanned trip to the Underworld, Kat really had zero control over her which is exactly how she came to faceplant against a wall when she overshot her mark looking for Mackenzie. The last text, that would provoke this action despite knowing that she was probably about to lie through her fvcking teeth; rubbing the spot on her nose where it came into contact with the hard surface, Katherine spun in a full circle before cerulean gaze fell onto one of her longest and dearest friends.

She wished she could have done this on text; but both women knew better. For other reasons.

”Let me just say, first, this entire shadow thing, not my fault. I broke myself and my own shadows when I died but those shades were here before that and before these ghosts followed me back. Two. Two of them.”

Succinct. As always. And if anyone could actually look both despondent and disgruntled at the same time, it would be Katherine; let’s be honest, Mackenzie had seen the blonde in pretty much in every kind of mood and certainly looking disheveled, but this, this was an entirely new crazy for Kat.
Livia Vlcek 09/26/19 Mack
No! You keep your cooties there in New York! *looks out the window* Eh.. no one is in Sydney. I must have been mistaken..
Katherine Murray 09/26/19 Wee Irish
My friend may have inadvertently caused a haunting.
Accidental death.
Ghosts latched on.
Normal things.
Everything is fine.😁
Katherine Murray 09/26/19 Wee Irish
Do we know where the ghost-busters are?
Asking for a friend.
Livia Vlcek 09/25/19 Mackenzie
I dunno? Maybe you're baking cookies for the recruits? You can't be here in Sydney for the weather. Springtime in Paris is much better for your kind.. isn't it? I figured Australia would be a touch on the sunny side. 😜
Livia Vlcek 09/24/19 Mackenzie
If you needed some sugar, you should have just called. I could have air mailed it to you.😒
Jasper Thompson 09/24/19 Mackenzie Darling
Just come home.
I'll be fine when you're here.
Kira Garrett 09/23/19 Mackenzie
The first step is admitting that you have a problem.
Richard LaMonte 09/23/19 "Does it look like I am playing f-cking games, Mackenzie? I've lost two weeks and wake up in the middle of some war with shadow monsters that look like us?... Is this a fever dream?" The male inspected his hands to see if maybe there were little heads growing somewhere. "Pinch me, see if I will wake up."
Richard LaMonte 09/23/19 Features ranged between confusion, disbelief and shock. It had almost been two weeks? "Wait, wait,wait, the twenty third? I just went into my room after Liam claimed I was staring at his @ss, which I was not might I add, and I took a nap! Can am an not take a nap and have the world fall to sh!t?"
Kira Garrett 09/23/19 Mackenzie
And you realize that I never specified booze, right?
I just said a bottle.
You sure you don't have a problem that we need to talk about?
Richard LaMonte 09/23/19 "Been over a week? The f-ck you mean, it's September 10th, right? And what do you mean rehab again? I don't do drugs." The man mimicked Mackenzie's movement, obviously frustrated. "All I know is, I woke up, Liam yelled at me, I came to find you and got attack. Next thing I knew the things were tearing eachother apart or some sh!t. What is going on?!"
Richard LaMonte 09/23/19 "Ha ha ha, so funny, but seriously. When was the last time you saw me? I spoke with Liam and went to my room, took a nap, and when I woke up evidently we are under siege by some kind of shadow monsters that tried to F-CKING SWARM ME. How does that happen in just a few hours?"
Kira Garrett 09/23/19 Mackenzie
When the madness settles down, I'll buy you a bottle of whatever you want.
Richard LaMonte 09/23/19 "So. Uh. What's this about...shadow things? Also, what day is it?"
Kira Garrett 09/23/19 Mackenize
I deserve that.
The whole tripping over my own grave thing was another red flag.
I'm sorry, Mack.
Kira Garrett 09/23/19 Mackenzie
Okay, so you were right.
Something is going on.
I'm sorry that I doubted you.
...And I'm sorry for being a d-ck.
Jameson Orlav 09/18/19 Mack
Well you're not f-cking dead, and that's what matters.
We need a game plan.
Sh-t, I don't even know what the hell we're dealing with.
This is a fvking nightmare.
Jameson Orlav 09/18/19 Mack
I don't know if safe is really an option, but I am alive. Sh-t has absolutely hit the fan. Doing my best for the kids right now. Are you okay?
Jasper Thompson 09/17/19 Mackenzie Darling
I love you more, sh-thead.
Seriously, nothing stupid.

Mackenzie Darling
You're alright?
Jasper Thompson 09/17/19 Mackenzie Darling
Yeah, well, there's no way to tell they're not either.
Be safe. Don't do anything stupid.
If it doesn't feel right, just...
Stay away.
Jasper Thompson 09/17/19 Mackenzie Darling
You know I can't leave everyone.
We're safe, for now.
How is he?
More importantly, you?
LillyEmperium 09/16/19 Mack
thought ya smelt funny. Ok just had to be sure
LillyEmperium 09/16/19 *Lilly sent Mackenzie a quick text*
ok Soo just to be sure.... you're not in Bloemfontein then..... right
Melinoe 09/15/19 Miss Mackenzie
Hurry home, please. Even I don't like whatever's happening...
Melinoe 09/15/19 Miss Mackenzie Something isn't right here... The feeling in the air has changed. I don't like it. When will you be home? I can't find Jasper, Mackenzie...
Kira Garrett 09/15/19 Mackenzie
Whatever you say. Boss. Have a great time in London.
Kira Garrett 09/15/19 Kira's jaw clenches. Of all the things, she had never expected Mackenzie to be a liar.
Mackenzie
I'm not falling for that. I saw you. I spoke to you. But you're right. Maybe I could use some space. From everyone. I didn't sign up to be treated like sh-t, Mack.
Kira Garrett 09/15/19 Reading the group text, Kira scoffed. So that's how Mack was going to play this off. Trust no one, what a load of sh-t.
Mackenzie
So did you realize this before or after you decided to be a raging b-tch when I bumped into you earlier? I was just inviting you out to drinks. No need to rip me a new one.
Wills Rosier 09/15/19 As if he were not elated enough in his interest, Wills' attention perked once that word leaves her mouth. Siren. "A siren, you say?" He needed no further explanation. He had been born of the sea, and there were few who shared the same salt of his blood. "Introduce me." Not a demand, but a request. "If you would."
Jewel 09/14/19

Uh, sure. Why not?
-didn't have it-
-was completely lost-

Jewel 09/14/19 Wha..-- what..?
-blinks-
-looks down, looks around-
I'm confused.
-tilts head-
Have I been drinking and not know it?
Jameson Orlav 09/14/19 You’re just.
But we were...
And the—
Yanno what? Never mind. Weirdo.
Jameson Orlav 09/14/19 -squints-
Wills Rosier 09/12/19 "Beg pardon, belch? Preposterous." As though he were some sub cultured American. Regardless, the lilt of his voice remained mellow, and easy. "What qualms do you have with these 'monsters', mm?" His brow bounced along with his words. "They've yet to do me a disservice." At the edge of his mouth, his lips twisted. "What are you proposing, exactly?"
Leigh Roberts 09/12/19 -toddles over-
-has kitten in hand-
Look. He does tricks.
-holds up a paw-
-presses paw to Mack's arm-
Tag.
You're it.
-grins and winks-
Theodora Hawthorne 09/11/19 Despite the deceptively small Irishwoman being the big kahuna in the neighborhood, she was actually rather hard to find. Then again, it might just be because Theo had yet to run across an actual map of the maze of tunnels that made up Sine Metu.

When she finally did find the vampiress exiting the wine cellar - they had a wine cellar? - she executed her attack.

Rearing her arm back, she laid a resounding SMACK on Mackenzie's right, round ass cheek.

She may have been drinking.

"Finally. I've been thinking about that all night. Take care!"

Turning on her heel, she slipped victoriously away, hoping at least one person would see the bright yellow Post-It with the sharpied words 'Tagged yo' ass' emblazoned across it.
Jewel 09/10/19 -jumps-
WTF
-cringes-
-snaps her fingers-
-stomps-
I am not good at being freaked out!
Weird-o.
Manannán mac Lir 09/09/19 -A wide grin, then two dimples appear-
Collection? How can I say no to such an offer!
-He raises his own bottle-
-Takes a long drink-
Alright then, but first...
-Taps his bottle to hers-
Tag, you're it!
LillyEmperium 09/09/19 * from a darken corner in the hallway Lilly stood waiting before calling out* Hey...got something for you... *At the first sign of movement she lobbed a balloon full of paint as she said* tag..... you're it
Leigh Roberts 09/08/19 Oh. Alright.

Leigh Roberts 09/08/19 So..
What do you do when an ex just can't take the hint?
Jack Horton 09/08/19 Well, I tried every other way with you - loving you, protecting you, doing everything I f*cking could for you. So forgive me if I figured I'd spice things up a bit for a change. Nothing left to lose at this point so why not go all out? I'll set fire to your whole f*cking world, Mackenzie, and we'll see how that feels, shall we?
Jack Horton 09/08/19 Look at you with all these petty pop culture references. I remember when you had more class. It's a shame what changes hanging around low-life scum can make of a person. I honeslty expected better of you. I really did. Won't matter for long though. None of this will.
Jack Horton 09/08/19 You done playing house with your sorry excuse for a childstar piece of sh!t manchild?
Jack Horton 09/08/19 YOU SAID I WAS THE ONLY ONE BUT IT WAS A LIE. NOW WATCH AS YOU BECOME THE ONLY ONE LEFT AND I KILL EVERYONE WHO MATTERS TO YOU. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET MACKENZIE. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!!!
Kenna Callaghan 09/08/19 Little of column A, little of column B. What can I say? I'm a woman of simple pleasures.
Melinoe 09/05/19 "Mackenzie! I'm gonna go stay with Li at Wahnsinn! If you need me, I can be here in a moments notice." Her smile falters for a moment as she mumbles. "I'm gonna miss you, though."
Kenna Callaghan 09/05/19 It is pretty great, isn't it?
Manannán mac Lir 09/05/19 -smiles-
For Ireland, for the Irish. Sláinte!
-salutes with his bottle, then takes a long drink-
At the risk of sounding like a conceited tool.
-leans in close-
I’m a sea god. Protector of Ireland. Here…
-fills her bottle of whiskey back to full with the flick of his wrist-
-has the good grace to blush-
Party trick!
Nicolas Murray 09/04/19 Yep. She’s undead. Because of me.
*lets out a long sigh and rubs his face*
I’m trying to figure out how to fix her. O just don’t know what that means yet. I’m studying. And yes, I can read. Barely.
*grins*
Melinoe 09/04/19 Be sure to RSVP to myself or Liam Moore via message as soon as you can! We have a lot of fun activities planned and we would love to make this mixer as big as we can! I hope to see you there!
Nicolas Murray 09/04/19 *rubs the back of his head*
Look there was an.. accident a few years ago.
Then this happened because of it.
So now I, well, take care of until I can figure out what to do.
*knew the time was coming. He just wasn’t ready for it.*
I’ve been able to stave off the worst but it’s not helping so much anymore.
Richard LaMonte 09/04/19 A lopsided grin was shot in the woman's direction. "You know, I'd be offended if you weren't right." After giving her hand a form shake he slid both of his own into the pockets of his stolen jacket. "Then again, for a junky, a kidney is a kidney nonetheless. There are no junkies in this communal home, are there?"

Following in step he gave a scoff. "After what I have seen just in the past few hours, I think it's gonna take some serious freaky sh-t to scare me."
Katherine Murray 09/03/19

I love you!
Nicolas Murray 09/03/19 *holds a finger up to Justine*
Just a moment, mon amor.
*closes the door again*
*rubs the beard*
How much time do you have? It’s a bit complicated...
Katherine Murray 09/03/19 -stares-
Am I grounded? If so, how far grounded? I need a lab, can I leave the sewer? Do we have insurance? Fire escapes? Bomb squad?

-smiles pretty-
Richard LaMonte 09/03/19 Her cynical quip would tug a grin at the corners of his lips. As if to stifle the urge he reached up to rub his fingers along the stubble that lined his jaw. Cleaned up and rested? Gazing at his current attire he had forgotten just what he was wearing. A jacket and jeans, nothing else. Now he just felt inadequate. "Well, I haven't much of a choice now do I? Just, if you take my kidney, at least drop me off by the nearest hospital, yeah?"

He was really going to go through with this. What else was he going to do? Wander around unfamiliar territory and hope not to be mugged or murdered? Big as he was, a bullet was stronger than muscle. "Sounds like a deal."

A large hand reached out towards Mackenzie. "Here's to hoping we find some kind of answers."
Katherine Murray 09/03/19 *sighs loudly*
*is fvcking dramatic*
Manannán mac Lir 09/02/19 -Is taken aback-
No. No! Nothing like that.
It's more like I was born for Ireland, rather then in it.
-nudges her and nods-
Make sense?
Nicolas Murray 09/02/19 Yeah. Dramatic.
Keep that in mind
*opens the door. Sitting on the bed is Justine in all of her half zombie, fairly rotted, definitely smelly, glory*
Mackenzie, Justine. Justine, Mackenzie.
*the flesh impaired woman rose a hand and gummily croaked out “Hello.”*
Manannán mac Lir 09/02/19 -Raises a brow at the sniffing-
-Sniffs back-
Well f-ck! I might have a house there.
-Looks around conspiratorial like-
I wasn't *born* there, you understand.
Manannán mac Lir 09/02/19 -nods approvingly-
A woman after my own heart. Bloody marvellous Irish!
-produces another and takes a swig-
Aye, I can do this all day.
Manannán mac Lir 09/02/19 -catches-
-squints-
- These things are precious!
-throws a bottle of whiskey at-
Nicolas Murray 09/02/19 *sighs and runs his hands through his hair*
Justine is my ex-wife. But...really...
Maybe it would be better if you met her. She's in my rooms.
*was going to have some explaining to do*
Melinoe 09/02/19 Mel's eyes go wide as Mack's phone flutters to the ground. Stooping down, she retrieves the device and passes it back to the woman.
Seeing the smile grow on usually stoic woman's face, Melinoe's own grin widens. "I like that about you, though. You're tough. But you're always kind to me. Thank you, Mackenzie."
Richard LaMonte 09/02/19 Yet again, Mackenzie's words bore a truth to them. So far very few individuals had offered to actually help him and those that did held ulterior motives the likes of which he had no interest in. Really, he was short on options; a fact emphasized by his counterpart.

Richard welcomed the blunt nature of the woman's words. Frustration had begun to bubble up over avoidance of answers when they were asked. Once he had begun to express said emotion, he was treated as rude and in the wrong. Mackenzie was a much needed breath of fresh air. "I never was a fan of kool-aid." If this all was in fact real, he needed to know what wasn't.

"What do you suggest we do?"
Richard LaMonte 09/02/19 She made a valid point. With a groan he flicked the barely smoked cig off into the night much like his companion. His wife had been bugging him to quite for years it was ironic the moment she disappeared he'd lose his taste for the things. Brushing his hands on his jeans he turned to face the woman with arms crossed.

For a moment he contemplated giving his name. Trust was a commodity for the man, even in his past (fake) life. For now he would stick with this shaky partnership until he could make sense of the thousands of questions in his mind. "Richard. And how, exactly, do you suppose we do that?" A doubtful glance was cast over the woman. "We aren't exactly Charlie's Angels so breaking back in isn't an option. Unless you have some kind of trick up your sleeve?"
Melinoe 09/02/19 Melinoe pokes her head out from around the corner. Her gap makes an appearance as she grins at her coven leader.
"Hi, Mack! Just wanted to pop in and let you know that the boys and I were chatting, and we're really glad that you found us."
Richard LaMonte 09/01/19 Gazing at the cigarette between his fingers Richard contemplated the woman's words. Once more it was brought to his lips for a hit and, despite his disgust, he was able to carry through this time. "From what I hear it won't be the only thing trying to around here."

A large shrug of his shoulders answered the woman's question. "I have no idea where I am, where I am going, or what to do. So far, you are the first person to make any kind of sense around here." Lifting his hand Richard began to pop his fingers in a nervous tick he had formed some time ago whenever he needed to think. "I am from Los Angeles. At least, I thought I was."
Richard LaMonte 09/01/19 "Too bad it's just an existential crisis." After a moment of contemplation he took one of the cigarettes and place it between his lips before giving it a light. The instant he inhaled features would contort into that of disgust before he retrieved it, spewing the smoke from his lungs. "Smoked since high school and now I can't bare the taste. What the f-ck is going on."

The woman's words did little to ease the Richard's mind. "Just hours ago I was a father and husband sitting at home having dinner. Suddenly, I was in some kind of facility. Tied down. Then there was screaming. And-" A hand reached to press against his temple as a sharp ringing wracked his racing mind. "F-ck, I dunno."
Richard LaMonte 09/01/19 An exhausted snort was given in reply. Pale hands reached to rub at his tired eyes in an attempt to help them gain some semblance of functionality despite the sleep deprivation. After retrieving the lighter he let out an exhausted sigh. "Everyone else seems to be all about this Realm bullsh-t."

Turning his head he gazed towards the woman with a quiet curiosity. So far, this one seemed the most lax, though that could have been a bad thing. Disturbed was the perfect word for him. Everything was wrong; his life was not as it should have been. This whole situation felt like one bad dream that persisted through the night. "That's one word for it. Tell me, is it normal to find out your whole existence was some lie and all life events were a figment of your imagination?"
Richard LaMonte 08/31/19 Panicked blue eyes glanced at the source of the voice. Finally, someone was saying something normal. Fumbling through the pockets of his jeans a lighter was produced and offered to the woman.

"Uh, yeah. Here. You aren't gonna say something about some realm or whatever, are you?"
Nicolas Murray 08/30/19 In that case...
Never mind. Just ignore any smells you might notice coming from my room
*slowly backs away*
I’ll let you tell her she can’t go to Scotland. Good? Good.
Justine? Justine who.
Bishop Orlav 08/30/19 -wrinkles nose-
-not a fan of the nose boop-
-at all-
Nicolas Murray 08/30/19 *scratches chin*
Welllll this is more of a babysitting gig than a clean up.
I mean she can get sort of messy, but it’s nothing a bit of Lysol won’t cure.
Katherine and I want to go to Scotland, but there’s a bit of an undead situation going on.
Mackenzie. It’s time you meet Justine I think.
Bishop Orlav 08/30/19 "...Okay. Fine."
"I will ask. I cannot guarantee results."
Bishop Orlav 08/30/19 "A boy's best friend is his mother, non?"
"I am his husband, not his maid. Maybe if you ask nicely he will oblige? Works for me."
Bishop Orlav 08/30/19 "Aren't you his mother? Isn't that your job?"
-glances-
"What, exactly, is it he needs to pick up?"
Jameson Orlav 08/30/19 You should teach your kids how to clean up after themselves.
Nicolas Murray 08/30/19 *chuckles*
*shrugs*
Well since you ask....
In my room.
She’s not quite dead yet.
Nicolas Murray 08/30/19 *approaches with a smile, rubbing the back of his head*
So, I have a favor to ask of you...I would owe you a big one in return.
Hector Olivier 08/28/19 "Mackenzie!" Hector called, waving down the vampire as she walked toward him. Picking up his pace, he jogged toward her, slowing as he closed the gap. "Just the per...vam...umm, woman I was looking for. Can you just give me a hand with something?"

Hector slipped his hand into his back pocket and pulled out his phone, holding it up. "I need to know if...hang on..." he began, wiping the phone on his denim thigh before holding it up. "Look..." he said, and held his finger down on the little camera icon on the lock screen, the front-facing camera registering his features, bringing the screen to life. "I know some...vampires," he whispered "who can't see their refection in a mirror. But then a friend of mine, she CAN. It's never occured to me, though, if you show up in photos so..." but he never finished, instead taking the look on her face as a sign to hurry the f*ck on and CLICK, he pulled a face at the camera, with Mackenzie by his side, and then ran, forwarding it to Flahme as he legged it around the corner.
Jasper Thompson 08/19/19 "I'll do what I can." A lingering kiss is pressed to her forehead, his tone deceptively level, though still managing to convey his lack of desire perfectly. "Keep me posted," he repeats, smiling lightly as he gives her hand a squeeze. Only once he's attained a glimpse of a smile from her will he take his leave.

Jasper knows she means well, and that there is a necessity to her desires, too. That doesn't make the prospect any more appealing. Facing Gray after all he'd said, truthful or not, is something he simply can't stomach right now, though it looms over him nonetheless. Resigned, and more than a little miffed about it, he sets out for a contemplative hunt, muttering obscenities the entire way.
Jasper Thompson 08/19/19 He hadn't wanted to join the search party for Victor, it's true. But the task she sets him upon is even more daunting, and his one-eyed gaze flashes dangerously dark. "And what would you have me do, Mack? Obviously it was the right move, he's already moved on, which is what we wanted." Again, he reminds himself that this is a good thing, despite his inner feelings of bitterness and resentment. Suddenly antsy, he moves out from underneath Mackenzie, retrieving his phone and moving around the room with the persona of a caged animal.

"There's nothing to fix with Gray." Resolute, he shakes his head, mouth pulling downward in an unmistakable show of regret. "He's better off without me, and this little jab over the alliance is nothing if not a good sign. At least he's f-cking feeling better." Scoffing, his anger rises anew, and he stifles it with a soothing sigh. "Just...be careful, and keep me posted about Victor."
Jasper Thompson 08/19/19 He sighs heftily, reveling for just a moment in her soothing touch. Of course Victor doesn't just disappear, and of course Gray isn't letting on. Everyone is privy to the stubbornness of Seventh Circle's previous confidante, none more so than Jasper.

Leaning back, he passes a dark glance to his wife, conveying the obvious wordlessly. They're no longer speaking, so Gray has cleaned his hands of him entirely. It's selfish, yet Jasper still can't blame him, even in the midst of his anger toward the betrayal. At least he's moving on, he reminds himself darkly, shaking the thought off as quickly as it had come. "Yeah, Seventh Circle's gone, and we should probably figure out what the f-ck happened to your dear old Redcoat..."
Jasper Thompson 08/19/19 Tossing the device on the desk, Jasper sinks into his desk chair and pulls Mackenzie down with him. His irritation shows readily on his face, and he buries his face in her hair for a moment, grounding himself in her being. "Victor has disappeared." It's muffled, but he knows she can hear, if only by the way she stiffens. "Gray decided that our alliance was null in the aftermath, apparently, so didn't see fit to tell us. He also doesn't seem concerned in the slightest, or he's not letting on."
Jasper Thompson 08/19/19 Lost in his own contemplative thought, his arms wrap around Mackenzie reflexively, more than anything else. Still, she pulls him from his mind with the concern evident in her tone, and his stormy eyes fall to her upturned face. Brows furrow as his shoulders shrug in natural response. "Sarah and Claire are excited that Gray seems to have a new boyfriend. No mention of Victor. I can--" The grimace stops that train of thought in its tracks, and Jasper doesn't bother to hide it from the one who'd be able to see through its absence either way.

He sighs, rubbing at his face and pressing onward, as he knows he must. "I can reach out." He's already typing out a careful message, chin resting atop her head as he deletes and rewords to his limited satisfaction.
Jewel 08/15/19 Whoa, whoa, whoa..
I don't know where he got that from!
I'm just been staying in Skad's room.
-eyes wide-
I have not seen him put that gyrating to use.

I swear.

Nicolas Murray 08/14/19 Oh
Strange woman’s house
It’s not even a question.
Nicolas Murray 08/14/19 *has a look of REAL panic*
*runs fingers through his hair*
*starts to look around frantically*
Mirror. I need a mirror, stat.
Katherine Murray 08/14/19 I'll find him. And take his hands. Maybe he is a lizard person. Or not. Doesn't seem to matter. -thinks- I wonder if I can make a vampire lizard and then...-toddles off muttering-
Nicolas Murray 08/14/19 I have?? Please. Please don't tell me it's the face.
Lark Harper 08/14/19 That voice was oh so familiar, crooning out three simple words and Lark couldn't help but to whirl around, and practically launch herself at the snarky brunette, shoulders trembling and chest rising and falling in staggered breaths; hyperventilating.

"M-Mack! This is a dream... It's just a dream...but this feels real..... you feel real.... Oh gods... I'm going crazy! They're gunna lock me up for sure this time."

Mack's songbird was shaking like a leaf.
Theodora Hawthorne 08/14/19 *secret smile*
Oh?
I'm sure they're all just as tasty as you.
*returns gaze to the thicc*
*brow raise*
Well. Maybe not.
Jewel 08/13/19
Katherine Murray 08/13/19 -squints- First of all, who would be dumb enough to turn you down. Secondly, I wanna hear more about this because I do not think anyone is that dumb, not because I need a husband. And third, really. It is research. I can cut off your hands to see if they grow back, if you want me to prove it. -squints harder-
Katherine Murray 08/13/19 Are you kicking me out of bed so soon? -grins- I doona need a husband, Mackenzie, they all die. I need a hand cut off so I can see if it grows back. And I do not wish to cut off mine. So you see my predicament? It's for research, lamb. Obviously.
Theodora Hawthorne 08/13/19 No.
Your ass makes your ass look big.
*turns head and squints appreciatively*
Thicc.
Katherine Murray 08/13/19 Well, now I do not wish to say. You'll tell me no. I asked Jameson. He said no. And then I asked some other male and he said no too. But he also said Jameson was his and not yours so now I'm rather confused and need to lie down. -thinks- I mean, lie down some where that isn't the floor. Currently. If you find someone that does not mind having their hand cut off, please let me know. -just lays where she is-
Katherine Murray 08/13/19 -flops dramtically- No one will give me their hand.
Jewel 08/12/19 Welp.
That's comforting.
Jewel 08/12/19 Uhhh...
Might have something to do with the fact that you, yourself, threatened to light me on fire.
Just assumed I wasn't the first nor last.
Liam Moore 08/11/19 What if I want them to have it though? Like what if it leads to adventure?
Oh you make a very good case and you did call dibs however someone may have beaten you to it.
Really should exclaim the dibs thing to them.
I still would be down to bust kneecaps though makes a satisfying crunch sound if you hear it before the person starts to scream.
Jameson Orlav 08/11/19 I can't wait to put you in a nursing home.
Jameson Orlav 08/11/19 If your kids continue to offer up their body parts as snacks, I'm going to start taking them up on it.
Liam Moore 08/11/19 Eyes go wide.
"Well considered me flattered, not that I'm one to complain but do I get a say in dibs?
Looks around once more.
"I don't think anyone is trying to claim my soul besides you. Can I trust you?"
Liam Moore 08/11/19 Looks around
"Dibs on what exactly? Is there something on my face? Why are staring?"
Flahme 08/10/19 -thinks-
"Target practice! I like it."
Bishop Orlav 08/10/19 -snorts-
"Like he would even listen to me. I could burn his whole collection and he'd still manage to find more."
-wrinkles nose-
"I think I'll at least try."
Jewel 08/10/19 So, who'd you burn alive this time?

[Congrats on POTD!]

Bishop Orlav 08/10/19 -sniff self-
-sighs-
-mumbles-
"Dammit, Jameson..."
-shrugs-
"Not of my own accord. I believe I have become, what do they say... uh, nose-blind, to it?"
Ronan Boru 08/10/19 Congrats on POTD What did you do lass ? What went Ka Boom? Oh wait that me there. Any way congrats.
Flahme 08/10/19 "Mack! I see posters of you about the place. If you need any help getting rid of the bodies, I can incinerate a bunch lickety-split."
-winks and rubs hand together-
Bishop Orlav 08/10/19 -stares-
-clicks tongue-
"Well, hello neighbor. It has been a while, non?"
WildKat 08/10/19 Congrats on PotD!
Adara Litvinova 08/09/19 Mackenzie
I'll be sure to let my people know.
The more, the merrier.
Leigh Roberts 08/07/19 -blinks-
-stares-
-takes given bone-
Claire Thompson 08/06/19 A deep breath is ushered out of her lungs, and she feels relief in finally letting it out. Before she can respond, she finishes preparing her tea, pads out to the living area, and secures herself, mug, and phone within the confines of a thick blanket on the couch, glancing up at the very drawing they've just been discussing with a sweet smile on her lips.

Mackenzie
It's rather like attempting to get back to a normal that no longer exists, isn't it? I keep tucking away things to tell my father when I see him again, only to realize much too late that there is no one to tell. Yet, I haven't gotten around to unpacking the tidbits I've stowed away in the back of my mind, maybe because I'm hoping that, if I let him make a home there, he'll have all these things to look through, and he'll want to stay with me.

Mackenzie
I suppose that's silly, but I'm afraid of forgetting.

There is no sense in regret now, though she does feel a tinge of guilt for putting this all on Mackenzie, who is surely having to work through it with Jasper as well. But Gray is too preoccupied, thus, Sarah with him, and she is exhausted with coming off as the weak one who always needs support and delicate handling. She just wants to get it off her chest without someone fearing for her emotional state.

Mackenzie
Anything personal that isn't spoken for can come to me. I was always much more sentimental than the rest of the family. Perhaps it's my lot to be our keeper. And there's a very in-depth set of medical books my father kept in his library. If those could find their way here, I'd be much obliged.
Bodhi Jones 08/05/19 I feel like...
tilts head back and forth, considering
I feel like puppies in a van with knives is the darker version of puppies in a van.
shrugs
Kinky or not, I'm not one to shame.
...though I do hope he has puppies in a van. With out without knives.
Bodhi Jones 08/05/19 Mmm...
follows along, nodding
Isn't that what Locks of Love is? Black market wigs? I think we're piecing the puzzle together.
laughs boisterously
To be fair, I did ask him what he could do.
Apparently knife play was my answer.
Bodhi Jones 08/05/19 Aha! so it was jealousy.
taps temple
I was beginning to worry I was losing it.
nods sagely
Couldn't agree more. I had a guy pull a knife on it.
bares teeth in concern
Not me- important clarification -the hair.
Bodhi Jones 08/05/19 brow arches, eyes narrow playfully
considers her own dark mane

If I didn't know better, I'd think you were jealous.
But, seeing as your hair is much more luxurious than mine...
I must be mistaken.
Bodhi Jones 08/04/19 smile widens
Don't worry, it's not dirty.
Well...
investigative sniff
Not horrendously so.
Jewel 08/04/19 I'll remember your 'light me on fire' threat when you need help getting rid of your next victim.
Leftovers.
Whatever you call them.

I'm thinking it's a better way to dispose of 'em!
firefirefire!

Jewel 08/04/19

And that escalated quickly..

Bodhi Jones 08/04/19 I can assure you, only the most errant of shampoos touch these locks.
Here- bows head in offering -give it a feel.
And it's not been washed in four days.
Bodhi Jones 08/04/19 Ahhh...
Whatever's on hand, really.
Clean's clean, amirite?
smiles toothily
Jewel 08/04/19 So says Ms. 'Imma let soup boy join'.
-shrugs-
I think it's fair. He might even enjoy it!
-contemplates-
He might even do it for free..
Jewel 08/03/19 Oh. I. Would.
-glances over nails-
I heard his time can be bought.
All I'd need is enough for an hour..
..or five.
Jewel 08/03/19 Alright..
ALRIGHT.
-thinks-
I'll ask Gray to tell you a story..
..a long drawn out one..
..monotone.
-fake mic drops-
Claire Thompson 08/03/19 It takes entirely too long for her to compose a suitable response that doesn't come off too cold or too comfortable. She strives for honesty, but in a tone that leaves no obligation on either end. She isn't foolish enough to think that the damage she'd caused her brother was acceptable, deserved or not. But she also won't apologize for it.

Mackenzie
Yes, it's okay. But you don't need to worry about me, either.

As soon as she hits send, her teeth gnaw at her bottom lip; it felt too distant.

Mackenzie
I am fine, though. Just getting back to normal, as best as I can.

Mackenzie
I hope you're well, too.

Mackenzie
And thank you, for mailing my things to me. I got my father's sketch of me when I was a child, and it's hanging over my mantle. Is that egotistical, do you think? Does it send the wrong message?

Claire isn't sure what drives her to attempt this over-reaching conversation. Perhaps it's merely connection with a part of her life that is wholly...gone.
Jewel 08/03/19 -nodnodnod-
Best believe it, lil missy!
He'll.. he'll.. uh, he'll..
-points dramatically-
He will spank you!
In public.
-fails badly-
Jewel 08/03/19 I guess..
-rolls eyes-
-tosses eyes to her-
But if he starts becoming intolerable..
..I'm going to Jasp.
-fake threatens-
Jewel 08/03/19 Don't do it, Mack.
He smells like soup.
And corn chips.

Off brand..

Hector Olivier 08/03/19 Mackenzie was out of town. 'Just upstate' she'd replied when he'd enquired about travel bag in her hand. And, with her out of the coven, it gave him the perfect opportunity to hatch his plan, as the seed of a prank begun to sprout in his mind.

And it wouldn't be the only thing sprouting.

With a chunk of the residents being vampires, it allowed Hector the privacy he needed during the day as he came and went between Sine Metu and the nearest garden supply store.

A fair few hours later, and, with a metric f*cktonne of bags of fertiliser now upended across the floor of Mackenzie's office, Hector got to work planting a selection of sprouting potatoes. The process of growing and maintaining seed potatoes would have taken far longer than the time he had, so he'd managed to convince a potato farmer online to dig up his partially grown spuds and mail them express delivery to the demon.

It was dirty work but, by the time he finished, the office of Sine Metu's leader had been transformed into a full-on legit potato field, complete with daylight bulbs hanging from the ceiling or screwed into lamps along the walls of the room.

To complete the gift, and to aid Mackenzie in the cleanup, he'd placed several bottles of Jameson on stools across the room. Satisfied, and in need of several showers, Hector closed the door, locked it using a pick, and returned himself to his room.
Jameson Orlav 07/28/19 You’ll have to ring whomever has it.
Jewel 07/26/19 Jasp is always the exception.
Jewel 07/25/19 Look at me.
Losing husbands.
But gaining friends.

Win?

Aurora Crane 07/25/19 *Her eyes light up at this new information.*

Time to go exploring!
Aurora Crane 07/25/19 I've been informed there is no sex club.

*pouts*
Jasper Thompson 07/25/19 Mackenzie Darling
I was hoping you'd say that.
Be there soon.
Jasper Thompson 07/25/19 Mackenzie Darling
You sure you don't mind me coming?
I can stay away for a while, if you need more space.
Jasper Thompson 07/25/19 Mackenzie Darling
Right. Send me the location.
Jasper Thompson 07/25/19 Mackenzie Darling
Do you want me to come?
Jasper Thompson 07/25/19 Mackenzie Darling
I actually just got back in town.

Mackenzie Darling
If you need some time, I can hold down the fort.
Jewel 07/23/19 I believe I'll second that.
Being sh-t on is sh-tty.

I just need to keep busy.

Jewel 07/22/19 -whimpers-
So sad..
He was just my type of crazy.
Tanvir Buckley 07/22/19 To: Mackenzie
Message: That's something tequila and I have in common. Tab'll tell you what room I'm in when you get here.

She begins another message. 'Did you see...'. She stops and deletes it. That's a question best asked with alcohol.
Tanvir Buckley 07/22/19 Tan laughs, replying.

To: Mackenzie
Tequilla?
Tanvir Buckley 07/22/19 Tanvir looks at the phone screen, resting back into her chair. He alive? She lets out a lungful of breath. Were any of them? Really? She clicks out of the text message thread and into another, typing:

"You alive?" it reads. A moment later, three little dots dance beneath her message.

'As I'll ever be.'

She replies and takes a screenshot, cropping out everything but the most recent conversation. Reopening Mackenzie's message, she sends the image.

To: Mackenzie
Jewel 07/22/19 Yeah, but.. he was around a lot!
There is no one to beat on anymore!
Where is my dose of crazy?
Jewel 07/22/19 Completely.

I still do miss him..

Jewel 07/22/19 I taste it in the air.
If I ever see him again.
He and I will have words.
And no shiny!
Jewel 07/22/19 He's gone.
I kinda miss him.
Tanvir Buckley 07/22/19 Tanvir chuckles. Her relationship with, nor her feelings for Mackenzie were straightforward. There would always be this uncertainty surrounding them in her mind. She almost felt guilty, unfair, for allowing herself contact with the vampire considering everything that had gone down. But, well...

Tan begins to type another message. Did you see Yoshi when he was back in town? Her finger lingers over the send button for a moment before she shakes her head, deleting.

Jewel 07/20/19 Fiiiiiinnee.

It helps his fingers haven't been wandering in my mouth.

Tiber Loche 07/20/19 *squints*

Jewel 07/18/19 -...'s-
He didn't do my mouth any favors.
Trust me.
It tasted like..
-shudders-
There are just no words.

...and..
I don't want to imagine.
He's insatiable.

Katherine Murray 07/18/19 Cheap, expensive; I do not think it matters, Kenz. As long as you are not mixing the drinks this time. It was a well-known fact that these two could drink and will literally drink anything if the alcohol content is right. However, the last time they shut down a bar; let's just say certain things do not mix. At all. But even the thought of that couldn't keep the blonde from smiling or placing her own hand atop of her Irish's pale fingers; my, oh my, did she miss this woman.

Lead the way, lovie, I'm all yours.
Jewel 07/17/19 You're the least amount of helpful right now!
And.. AND!
He took my gum!
Went on and on about shiny.

....

He needs to be stopped.

Kira Garrett 07/16/19 Can anyone refuse you?
According to my calculations, they can't.
Jewel 07/16/19 It's not funny?!
-screeches-
I still taste it..
-whines-
-cvcks head back while whining-
In my mouth..
-whimpers-
Kira Garrett 07/16/19 What, you aren't even going to seduce me? I'm insulted.
Jewel 07/16/19 MACK!!
-hollers-
He put his fingers in my mouth!
IN MY MOUTH!
-sputters-
Katherine Murray 07/16/19 Well, that explains that then.

Lips pursed momentarily before a cerulean gaze roved toward her wee Irish and since there would be no service to be had on her tiny little God box, her fingers would slip the small device into a pocket; only then her pursed lips would curl into a catty sort of smile.

If eyes aren’t careful, they might get plucked.

Lifting a single brow, Kat would take in the fact that something unusual was happening, her Irish was in heels, this was not wholly new, but definitely a surprise.

So, this is a date, date, hmm, Kenz. I’m expensive, you know.
Jasper Thompson 07/16/19 Mackenzie Darling
I know.
I'll be home.
Jasper Thompson 07/16/19 Mackenzie Darling
...okay, then.
Jasper Thompson 07/16/19 Mackenzie Darling
I'll be home.
Make sure they don't ruffle through my second drawer.
Melinoe 07/15/19 Is there any sugar in it?
Melinoe 07/15/19 Just Mackenzie? I can do that. Guess I didn't realize that I do that for everyone. And you're far from delicate. You're a whole force of nature.
Melinoe 07/15/19 Miss Mackenzie, I can't wait to see what mischief we'll get into! Rat of a feather, flock together. Isn't that how that saying goes?
Melinoe 07/15/19 Our family just keeps getting bigger and bigger, miss Mackenzie! Everyone seems like such fun.
Katherine Murray 07/14/19 My Wee Irish
As soon as the gods allow it.
You couldn't stop me anyway.
I'll find him!
Don't spoil the surprise though.
Katherine Murray 07/14/19 My Wee Irish
You, me, and a bar sound good.
Talking sh-t is just the icing.
I'll be coming home soon. BIG KISSES TO JASP!
Jasper Thompson 07/12/19 Mackenzie Darling
Love you, Mack.

Roman Godfrey 07/11/19 Seems like you've been keeping yourself busy, boss. Happy to see that the new recruits haven't ran for the sewers yet.
Melinoe 07/08/19 Mel nods her head in understanding, lost in thought for a moment. "I can find someone and fatten them up with sweets, if you ever have the craving. Just say the word, miss Mackenzie. I'm your girl." A bright smile in on the girls face as she stares up at the woman whom she has endless admiration for.
Melinoe 07/08/19 Want a treat, miss Mackenzie?
I can run back to the ice cream truck and get you something!
Jameson Orlav 07/07/19 For the love of all things unholy, please stop talking about sh!t.

Mackenzie Darling
Miss you, too.
Bishop Orlav 07/05/19 Being called sweet caused his features to twist into that of minor disgust. Toned arms crossed over his chest with Bishop paying no mind to the blood being smeared on his black shirt. It was truly one of the reasons he mostly wore black.

Much like a cat, Bishop rarely ever came when beckoned. Half the time it was simply out of spite, otherwise he simply just did not care enough. Right now he had no reason to be spiteful and every reason to go on account of his growing hunger. Tentatively, he followed. "Seems we have that in common.I tend to get...grumpy when hungry."
Hector Olivier 07/05/19 "Tell me," he asks, taking back the flask, helping himself to a cheaky sip. "What sort of victim do you prefer?" flask back in his pocket, the demon holds his hands back together before her. "Would you like for me to struggle? Scream? Or submit? Really, I'm easy with anything, but I want to ensure you get the most out of the experience, Mackenzie." And this was why he continues to siphon the years from mortals. For nights like this.
Hector Olivier 07/05/19 "When it comes to murder," he admits, dropping his hands to his sides "I'm pretty easy." While Hec had absolutely no idea who the woman was, experience proved that to usually mean he was in for a good time. And anyway, what was the worst she would do? Kill him? Unlikely. Slipping his hand into the inner pocket of his jacket, he produced a hip flask full of scotch, unscrewing the cap before holding it out to her. "Hec."
Hector Olivier 07/05/19 "Kidnapping?" Hec repeats, raising his eyebrows. "Damn, I haven't been kidnapped in a good, what, ninety years? No...wait, when was the Russian Revolution?" Holding out boths hands, Hec brings his wrists together, mockingly submitting. "I have no plans. One doesn't really plan to be stalked, after all."
Hector Olivier 07/05/19 Hector eyes her, brow furrowed, listening to her words and the accent behind them. Irish. Ugh, the worst. "As are you with the whole 'stalking' thing. Mind if I ask what your plan was?"
Hector Olivier 07/05/19 Yup, he was being followed. He'd felt it as he'd walked, and now his stalker had made herself known to him. Rising, Hector turned to face her, looking down at the woman and smiling. "How cute. A bunny. What are you? A dwarf lop?"
Bishop Orlav 07/02/19 "It was." Bishop was never one for being prim and proper. After a while he stopped participating the political parties and just stared down opponents from afar. It worked for the most part. The fact she took his hand without so much as a hint of disgust, at least physically, was enough for him quirk a brow. As she spoke he began to work on the other arm, almost making a show of it.

The cleaning stopped at the mention of snacks. As if on cue, his stomach rumbled. "Well, if you are buying, how could I refuse?"
Hector Olivier 07/02/19 Hec stops, getting down on one knee to tie his shoelace.
Bishop Orlav 06/30/19 "Back home to show such savagery was... distasteful. Gore and death was to be kept out of sight and out of mind." Blue hues gave the woman a once over before an inquisitive brow rose up at her attempt to be friendly. His eyes would linger on her hand, then back to her eyes, before returning to his arms. They were brought to his mouth where his tongue began to clean lines of the thick liquid away.

"THE Mackenzie? Wants to kidnap me? I should feel so honored." After cleaning off his hand the best he could, a semi-bloodied hand took Mackenzie's into it. "I am called Bishop. And if you kidnap me, at least supply wine."
Averly Amoret 06/29/19 Boss Lady
I see you've lured a few more into the trap.
It's nice to see some new faces.
One can only assume that it went a little something like this.
Roman Godfrey 06/28/19
Jameson Orlav 06/28/19 Hop off my jock, leprechaun.

xoxo
Bishop Orlav 06/28/19 Blue hues squinted back at the woman. The women around these parts were particularly...odd. Upon her question he glanced at his crimson glazed forearms before returning his glance to her. "Sometimes it can't be helped." He flicked his hands to rid them of the excess blood. A finger was brought to his mouth for a taste before he actually began to try and wipe it off. "I had hoped it would keep others away. Seems I was mistaken."
Melinoe 06/27/19 The girl lets out a squeal as she wraps her arms around the woman's waist. "Oh, thank you miss Mackenzie! My friends and I have been working so hard to make you proud."
Melinoe 06/21/19 Wiping sweat from her brow, Mel looks up at her coven leader. "I've been training my absolute hardest. Am I doing a good job so far, miss Mackenzie?"
Melinoe 06/17/19 Oh, miss. We are going to have the most fun. We're happy to kill- help however you see fit.
Melinoe 06/17/19 They receive their payment in terror. I'm a fan of switchblades and lollipops.
Melinoe 06/17/19 Chuckles? He cleans up whatever messes Mr. Jingles makes. No body, no crime.

Roman Godfrey 06/09/19 Roman grins as he stares at the balloon. “Beep, beep, eh?”
Jasper Thompson 06/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
He's very.. smiley.
Jasper Thompson 06/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
...ew?
Hey, who tf is this smiley ass motherf-cker?
Averly Amoret 06/07/19 Boss Lady
As an avid supporter of the sciences,
I'll try my best to snap a picture of him.
For your research of course.
Averly Amoret 06/06/19 Boss Lady
There's a strange, attractive man advising me that you're the devil.
Whether this is true or not, I just wanted to let you know I'm in.
When do I get a pitch fork?
Averly Amoret 06/03/19 Boss Lady
I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd do me the honor in giving me your vote.
You know my smile is irresistible.
Jasper Thompson 05/26/19 It's a sobering concern, and he only nods his acknowledgment. For all he's done, she truly may attack him, but it would be much more welcome than her undeniable prowess with words. She could break him apart without even touching him, and that is the battle he is most afraid of.

"Deal," Jasper will cede easily, falling into her and, thus, their bed. For the time being, the world could wait. As it is, his is right here.
Jasper Thompson 05/26/19 She easily agrees to his undeniably hefty task, and his appreciation for her only deepens that much more. He presses a grateful kiss to her forehead, exuding his love and adoration wordlessly. They are quiet, then, both lost in their respective thoughts and tangled in one another for grounding.

Jasper can't help the small smile that forms at her question, though he does his best to hide from her. The idea of Claire coming at him in any show of brute force is almost comical, despite the fact that she does hold the ability. "Not very, I'm sure. She's young, and I'm much more experienced than she is. Don't worry, I think I can hold her off and keep her from hurting herself in the process."
Jasper Thompson 05/26/19 "Spare me, just this once?" He mirrors her expression, their lips meeting in a lingering kiss. He soaks it in, this moment of theirs, alone and together, as they ever are. It gives him a courage he would never give voice to, the only one worthy of its knowledge so perfectly aware already.

All too soon, he must pull away, and it's not an effortless task. A sigh gives way to his thoughts, wary of the past heartbreak he'd caused his sister, and the coming desecration that loomed before him. "I do have to ask a favor," he finally gets out in low undertones, "and it requires a bit of deceit. Keep her here. Let Gray and I handle this. For their sake."
Jasper Thompson 05/26/19 Ending the phone call with Gray effectively set things in motion, and Jasper pushes himself up and through the twisting hallways until he finds himself on the other side of his own door. A calm voice can be heard, followed by the shrill retort that could only be Sarah. Sighing, he pushes his way inside. His mouth opens to greet the girls, but she's already brushing past him, procuring a tight-lipped, eyebrow-raised expression, only for Mackenzie.

He shuts the door softly in the wake of Sarah's leaving. "Well?" It's a lighthearted prompt, laced with exhausted humor. "Am I to hear it from you, too?"
Jasper Thompson 05/15/19 "What, you don't think printing out a picture of your face and taping it over will suffice?" Catching sight of the dark, somewhat dangerous stare she gifts him, Jasper hastily throws his hands up in a gesture of playfulness. "Alright, alright, let's have a bonfire. I'm sure Sarah will be thrilled to partake."
Jasper Thompson 05/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Boooooo, I want a refund.
Jasper Thompson 05/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
...what were you doing back then? Where's my photo album?
Jasper Thompson 05/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
We'll go to a library then.
I f-cked around with a lot of groupies and musicians back then, I'm sure it's very well-documented somewhere.
Jasper Thompson 05/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Hmmm... I'll look, but I can't guarantee anything.
Elias didn't like depictions of me having fun.
You'd have to ask Lilith, and even then, you probably won't find much luck.
Jasper Thompson 05/08/19 Mackenzie Darling
Literally no one has one.
I have no idea where your photo album is, I have no use for such a thing.
Ask Sarah. She's weirdly sentimental, like you.
Jasper Thompson 05/07/19 Mackenzie Darling
Photo album?
Janus 05/06/19 I've got two stones, thank you very much.
-grumbles-
Ask Elisa.
Janus 05/06/19 -smirks-
You may have bought stock, but I have the...
Required hardware.
Janus 05/05/19 It's my favorite cologne.

I've got the secret formula.
Phantom_ 04/19/19 He detested doing this, but hearing of his friend had made him need to know.
Mackenzie
I heard of Jasper...looking into everything in Paris, we’ve found a few things to help slow the progression and ease the fever a bit...if you need anything just let me know!
He was happy he hadn’t deleted her number, he just prayed it was the same as before.
Jasper Thompson 04/14/19 The laughter dies off almost instantly, morphing into a groan that tells of his state, even if he won't. Still, a weak smile answers her. "Turns out, it might not be such a bad idea." Truly, it is a bizarre occurrence, and one probably not to be taken so lightly, but he is nothing if not careless. Another spasm, and he growls out about the damnable driver's whereabouts at such a time.
Jasper Thompson 04/14/19 Any attempt at protest doesn't make it past a half-hearted thought, as Mackenzie seems set in her decision. She runs soothing fingers through his hair, but that only proves to worsen his head's throbbing state, and he can't help but to pull away slightly.

"It's probably just lack of sleep," comes the rationalization, but even he isn't convinced. He's been sleep-deprived before; this seems altogether different. "You should feed, though... It might affect your vulnerability if you don't..." When did he get so tired?
Jasper Thompson 04/14/19 He gives her a pained smile, not having fully recovered from.. whatever that was, but also not wanting to cause unnecessary worry. "I'm fine," he reiterates, even as his head pangs its protest. But as he moves toward the victim, the intent to kill shining bright in his gaze, he is nearly brought to his knees with the wave of muscle spasms.

With a moan, Jasper collapses into the nearest wall and slides down it. "Suddenly, I'm not very hungry. No, go ahead," he shuts down her hesitancy with a wave, forcing a smile, "can't very well let him go now, can we?"
Albert Harris 04/08/19 "You?! You put me in the...in the..in...hold on..."

Albert pushes a finger into his ear and wiggles it until a few clumps of dirt fall from within.

"Thanks! Jee!"
Jasper Thompson 04/07/19 The resounding crack of his nose being reset precedes the dazzling smile she's landed with. One c0cked eyebrow leads him in his steps, careful to dance him just out of reach. "Well? Your move..."
Albert Harris 04/02/19 *Albert brushes dirt from his hair, coughing throughout the process. Every crease of clothing, every pocket and seam is full of dirt. Grave dirt. Someone thought he was dead. He clearly wasn't.* Sorry about that, boss. It seems I got myself buried.
Jasper Thompson 03/23/19 She will do her best to claim his attention, but this particular element is hard to distract him from. Rather, she only enhances it, driving his blood lust, and his focus is centered on one beast of a man with a devilish hook. Anger guides him, and Jasper needs to exploit it.

So focused on the fight before them, he doesn’t even notice the ringing in his back pocket; but she does. An eyebrow arches at her sigh and before he can protest, the phone is pressed to his ear. “Yeah,” comes the distracted greeting.
Jasper Thompson 03/22/19 Mackenzie Darling
She looks a lot like him, use your imagination.
I mean, we can put her up somewhere. There’s a perfectly good, unused room in SM.
Jasper Thompson 03/22/19 Mackenzie Darling
Corruption is all I know, you’re taking away my skill set.
Hurry up, we’re going to teach her how to fight.
Jasper Thompson 03/22/19 Mackenzie Darling
Yes, our first encounter was over alcohol.
And don’t worry, she hates Gray, too.
Jameson Orlav 03/18/19 Mack
Isn't every day your day?
Am I supposed to fall at your feet on the daily?
... Don't answer that.
Jasper Thompson 03/17/19 He wraps her up gratefully, grounding himself in her presence before finally breathing out a sigh. “I’m fine, Mack.” And he is, in this moment. “You should go. I can’t imagine what she’ll do if you keep her waiting.”
Jasper Thompson 03/17/19 Not a trap.

Stunned silence fills the room eerily, but Jasper just can’t find words. A chill finally passes through him, and he can only shake his head clear of the sudden fog. “Okay, well... I suppose you can’t not go.” Thoughts drift to the body that he swears they buried in Moscow, and another shiver wracks his spine.
Jasper Thompson 03/17/19 Another nod indicates his agreement, and he mirrors the expression. “Me, too.” After everything, they all deserved some good news.
Jasper Thompson 03/17/19 “Here,” he holds out his own phone, nodding appreciatively, “call him from mine. He won’t answer if he knows it’s you.” The shade of a smile lights in his eyes, and he leans back in his chair, watching her carefully. “...you really think it could be her?”
Jasper Thompson 03/17/19 He glances up when his name is uttered but doesn’t otherwise acknowledge the interruption. Not until she’s physically pushing things out of his line of reach and an exasperated sigh leaves him. One passing graze of the phone and he’s fixing her with a muted stare. “Go where? Straight into a trap?”
Spring Summers 03/16/19 Unknown Number
to: my *****
My *****. {Location Shared}
Jasper Thompson 03/16/19 Jasper hasn’t looked at her really at all. At least, not directly. Even passing glances sear the memory of her lifeless body on the floor into his mind’s eye. It’s too painful an image to address so soon, so he simply avoids it altogether. Still, he can feel her gaze on him every time it lands. “Anything you want.”
Averly Amoret 03/09/19 Boss Lady
Oh sh-t.
If I knew you were going to quiz me I would have tried to dig deeper.
Red? Purple?
Do grown ups still have favorite colors?
Averly Amoret 03/09/19 Boss Lady
After some *light* stalking I was able to glean that you may enjoy whiskey. No?
Jasper Thompson 03/09/19 The night has drained him more than usual, probably due to the dispute he’d had with her just before leaving. Jasper hates fighting with her, naturally, but especially about this particular topic. The guilt already threatens to consume him when he’s called to his duty, and he’d be damned if she had to shoulder anymore of it than she already does. So, he steadies himself, preparing an apology for what isn’t the first, and certainly won’t be the last, time. But when she practically jumps into her arms, professing her own apology and love, he could laugh with relief. “Don’t apologize, Mack, none of this is on you. Just... don’t ever forget that I love you, and I really am so, so sorry. For all of it.”
Averly Amoret 03/09/19 Boss Lady
Is it weird to invite your boss out for drinks?
Asking for a friend.
Jasper Thompson 03/08/19 “Did I ask for one?” The hiss in his voice tells of his frayed edges, and to keep himself from saying or doing something regrettable, his hands come up in a stopping motion. “No,” comes the soft white flag, and he snatches up his coat and moves to the door. “I’m not doing this tonight. I’m sorry, I am, Mackenzie, for putting you through this. But I don’t have a choice. You do.” With an exhausted sigh, he leaves her to attend to his unsavory business.
Jasper Thompson 03/08/19 “No.” It’s short and nearly venomous, his eyes flashing dangerously. “It only gets worse.” Then, shame-faced, he turns away, rubbing the back of his neck with a frustrated vigor. “You realize that, right? There’s no better alternative. This is just.. it.”
Jasper Thompson 03/08/19 A slow breath escapes him as he pulls the shirt over himself. “There is nothing else. You, or Claire, I suppose... but that’s not obviously not plausible.” A decidedly defeated expression is gifted to her, his only offering in discussions such as these. Eventually, it might stop being enough. “I’m sorry.”
Jasper Thompson 02/27/19 He considers her for a moment, the proposal rolling around in his mind. Home would just be nice for the sake of familiarity, and being comfortable in his surroundings. London feels less than welcoming, and he wrestles with the restlessness that usually whisks him away on a whim. Now, it feels wrong. Even going home feels wrong.

“Alright,” he breathes, pressing a kiss to her forehead. “I’ll go.”
Jasper Thompson 02/27/19 “She doesn’t want me there, Mack, she would’ve said something by now.” Even so, Jasper feels the weight of the unknown heavy on his mind, body, and soul. Gray is offering him nothing that sets him at ease, and it only proves her point. In order to know anything, he must see for himself.

“She’ll hate me if I just show up.” Yet he has to remind himself that she already does; what’s one more thing?
Jasper Thompson 02/27/19 Staring at his phone, the answer more than unsatisfactory, he rubs at his face and sighs deeply. “I think... We should go home.” It’s the furthest thing from what he wants to do, but he can see no other option, and he’s itching to feel at least some form of comfort again.
Jasper Thompson 02/22/19 It's done, and that's all that matters.

At least, that's what he keeps telling himself.

The truth is, he does feel guilty. Jasper knows Mackenzie is upset, and to her own right, she has reason to be. In the same token, he is neither in the mindset nor the mood to be dealing with it. So, when he reenters the hotel room, with dawn having broken an hour ago, he is careful to be silent and unbothersome. In keeping with the theme, he takes entirely too long to get into bed, for simple fear of disturbing her. When he manages, though, he's out within seconds.
Jasper Thompson 02/21/19 Mackenzie Darling
Gray and I are going to spring Claire.
I’ll explain everything later.
I love you.
Albert Harris 02/13/19 Dear Ms Brooks,

Thank you for your invitation to join Sine Metu.

All the best,
A. Harris
Jasper Thompson 02/12/19 There’s a part of him that can’t stomach any distance between them. This had been new and unexpected, and he can’t stop looking at her and touching her. It’s as if he believes that, should she leave his sight, she walks into another country. Fury toward their newborn and his failure is unequivocal.

In spite of himself and the recent affairs, he smiles at her observation. “The blood makes it feel homey, doesn’t it?” He’s only half-kidding as he lands a kiss to her lips. Then, his expression hardens. “I have him chained up in Sine, waiting for you.”
Averly Amoret 02/11/19 On behalf of all blondes, I give them a bad name.
Averly Amoret 02/11/19 Rats, I was hoping that shower I took a few days ago would lessen the smell of homelessness. Cheeseburger and a ride home, and I'm as good as yours.
Mystic-husky 02/10/19 Congrats on Potd Mack!
Elisa Stratten 02/10/19 Profile of the day... *Sings offkey* Shine bright, shine far, don't be shy, be a star. Where you live, where you are, be a star!
Ronan Boru 02/10/19 *Ronan look a t his friend and smiles .* "I see lass you are once again on the most wanted list.Well done. Congrats."
WildKat 02/10/19 Congrats on PotD, Mack.
Mystic-husky 02/07/19 Thank you Mack!
Jasper Thompson 02/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
So I’ve gathered.
Jasper Thompson 02/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Easier said than done.
Stay safe. I’ll see you soon.
I love you.
Jasper Thompson 02/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Sorry, I’m not in the habit of lying to you.
I’ll pick you up.
Jasper Thompson 02/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
I think we both know the answer to that.
Want me to come get you?
Jasper Thompson 02/05/19 “Ugh, beautiful,” he coos, carefully stepping over the stoic frame to get to his wife, “amazing, wondrous woman.” By this point, exhausted as he is, he is beside her on the heavenly mattress, fighting off the natural instinct to melt into the comfort. Taking up her face, Jasper peppers her with kisses and affection, humming contentedly in the reach of the only one that matters. “You are a gift I never deserved, a grace beyond measure.”

A smirk makes its way onto his countenance, morphing his features even as he continues with the momentous adoration. “You spoil me,” he whispers into her hair, pulling her close, blissfully and purposefully unaware of her offer. The only thing on his mind, despite the tickle in the back of his throat, is the woman before him. She is all he’s thought about all night, of course. “And we must christen our new mattress...”
Jasper Thompson 01/31/19 "Lack of sleep, maybe," he responds, a hint of apology gleaming in his stormy gaze. Jasper still isn't entirely sold that she's not feeling him out, desirous of something, but the attention is undeniably pleasant. "Sorry, sorry, don't be mad." He pulls her back with a playful frown, going so far as to push his bottom lip out imploringly.
Jasper Thompson 01/30/19 There’s no pinning down exactly what this heinous mood stems from; be it exhaustion, stress, or something else entirely, he holds onto it for all he’s worth anyway. Futilely, however, as he already feels himself beginning to melt in her grasp. An eyebrow is c0cked. “What’s this about? Did you do something?”
Jasper Thompson 01/28/19 “No... should I be offended?” He growls defiantly, tapping his foot and crossing his arms. Perhaps he’s a little on edge, but it makes the declaration no less true.
Elisa Stratten 01/28/19 -buries you in heap of roses- Does this prove my love? Mackenzie, WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?
Elisa Stratten 01/28/19 Yesssss?
Jasper Thompson 01/26/19 “I think you mean who,” comes the wry reply, and it’s clear he’s just as excited as she is. For added emphasis of his pride, and perhaps, a special treat, he tosses his phone to her. “Take your pick. No one is off the table, the more dramatic, the better. I want it to be a blood bath.”
Jewel 01/24/19 Wow.. Looking all shiny and new!

(Congrats!)

Genesis 01/24/19 Congrats on making 20 Mackenzie!!
Jasper Thompson 01/24/19 This calls for celebration!
Super proud of you and all your hard work.
Also, we got the apartment. Exposed brick, one room, and everything.
Let’s have a party where we kill everyone after.
Morgana le Fay 01/24/19 Congratulations on rank twenty Mackenzie! May your day be wonderful!
Malek 01/24/19 Malek carefully packages the half-full bottle of Wild Turkey 101. It had started out full... but the packaging had been so stressful causing him to drink just a tiny bit of the bottle. Just a tad. Finally, the thing ends up being wrapped in crepe paper and shoved in its original paper bag.

Good enough. It's the thought that counts, right?

Grats!
Livia Vlcek 01/23/19 Illegal in most states
THEY ARE BLONDE.. NOT GREY. Some of us can't be 'seventeen' forever..
Livia Vlcek 01/23/19 Smurfette
Could you turn down that blue-violet neon light? I understand you like to party but its blinding glow is shining through my window and I'm trying to take a 'nap' here.

Congratulations on 20! You did it!
Jasper Thompson 01/17/19 “A shoebox studio?” He c-cks a brow in mock disbelief, thinking it rather fitting for the pair. Small and cozy, ever on top of each other. Why change just because they got hitched? “You’re sure that’ll be enough room for your stuff?” Even as he asks, he’s already pulling up listings on his laptop, perched expertly on his knees as he spawls over the expanse of her bed. “What about this one, then?”
Jasper Thompson 01/15/19 “I love your stuff,” he offers confidently, though some items he might call into question. It’s no skin off his teeth, though, and Jasper merely shrugs. “Okay, so let’s get a place. You want a fancy brownstone? A place for you to hold your posh dinner parties and what not?” He grins wickedly.
Malek 01/14/19 So long ago, Malek had been a boy. A boy with no direction. A boy with anger and lust, rage and desire. He was a creature of his passions, guided only by the Beast within and little logic. He has changed, yes. Grown, if not physically larger, then larger by his mere presence. This creature before him, a monster in a beautiful package, something that smells unclean and tainted, has changed so little. Perhaps a subtle increase in that dark presence, but that may also be illusion. Imagination. Flight of fancy. Tainted? Who is he to judge the taint of another? The cleanliness? The motivations? Nay... he cannot and, within this growth, perhaps there exists an extension of maturity that explains this to him.

Radiantly, eyes flash humor that is reflected immediately in the deep rumble of laughter that booms its way forth from his broad chest. A few scant seconds of laughter and a shake of his head. "An' y'ain' aged uh bit," he says, eyebrows bobbing. Compliment? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Maybe even a subtle insult?
Malek 01/14/19 It's a random encounter. Encounters always seem to be random these days. Malek stops and glances around slowly, his scarred visage taking on a thoughtful affectation as he spots a seemingly familiar face. With a near theatrical elegance, his damaged nostrils flare in the manner of a great hound snuffling at the Earth in search of its prey. The smile that tugs at his lips can only be described as sardonically grotesque as his lustrous green-gold irises flash mild amusement along with recognition. Yes, he knows the face. He knows the scent. It has been quite some time... but time is a fickle thing, is it not? A slow nod follows. Perhaps it shows some modicum of respect, though certainly not deference. A greeting... a casual one from a distance too far for arms to reach even taking into consideration the preternatural athletic abilities of her ilk. He's not quite staring her down, not quite issuing challenge, but it is a near thing. Curiosity and amusement. Little more. Perhaps.
Elisa Stratten 01/12/19

LOVE ME.
Jasper Thompson 01/07/19 He mocks her playfully, gestures and all, as he meets her halfway. A hand reaches up for the envelope, pulling back only slightly when she changes her mind. A glorious eyeroll coupled with a winning smile leads him down into a lingering kiss, only to hide his arm sneaking around her. With a flourish, Jasper tosses Mackenzie, bag and all, over his shoulder and makes for their destination. “C’mon, let’s go make an honest woman out of you. Finally.”
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Oh, no, however will we make it on time.
I’m on my way.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Fine.
I might wear pants.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
I mean, it might be fun?
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
The suspense is killing me.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
That’s what I said. You were supposed to decide. 😏
See you soon.
I’ll be the one that’s naked from the waist down.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Just tying up some loose ends. You literally have my bag.
I’ll meet you at the airport in half an hour.
And that was your department, Darling.
Deciding where we were going was you.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Scout’s honor.
What are you expecting to find?
I’m classy; I don’t keep or take nudes.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
Oh, that.
Honestly, I assumed you’d already snooped.
I probably would’ve.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
For what? I’m suspicious.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
I genuinely don’t think that’s possible, but I welcome the challenge you’ve set for yourself.
I will gladly be your test dummy.
Jasper Thompson 01/06/19 Mackenzie Darling
That’s because I’m already wearing it, nosy.
Kit Shannon 01/06/19 "Oi. Hey, oi, you."

Jasper Thompson 01/04/19 “My beard?” he laughs boisterously, not sure whether that’s meant to be offensive. Mostly because he doesn’t quite understand the term. “What, is that to make me seem less gay? Are you asking me to change?” Now, he latches on to feigning that offense, disentangling and bringing a hand up to his chest in mock surprise. “I am who I am, you knew what you signed up for. If I want to show up in a rainbow banana hammock, you will still marry me, and be all the happier for it. A beard, Mackenzie, how dare you.”

The charade is broken as he collapses into a fit of laughter, somehow having worked himself up to imagining her with a full-blown biker beard. It’s fitting, really. Wiping away a tear from his eye, he dons a more serious look. “Maybe we should have somewhat of a plan as to where to go... I just don’t want to accidentally get married in Syria, y’know?”
Jewel 01/04/19 It has to.
Your complexion makes a girl want to eat a finger.
Khellen 01/04/19 Join them. Obviously.
Jewel 01/04/19 Ever consume a soul?
Lots of protein. Souls contain a wild amount of protein.
Keeps it sleek.
-sways her silky locks-
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 No, fancy has never been who they are. Spontaneous and carefree fit the bill all the better, in fact, and this seems right up their alley. One hand slips around her waist and pulls her closer while the other smooths the hair from her face. “As if it could be anything but a yes.” Shaking his head, he dips in for a soft kiss in an effort to soothe her worried mind.

“Our lives are never going to be calm, I’m sure. It’s always going to seem like there’s too much going on. But this has been a long time coming. Why put it off for excuses we could always make.” He smiles reflexively, completely content. “You’re mine, Mackenzie, and I’m yours. Might as well make it official.”
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 As she gears herself up for whatever she has in mind, Jasper c0cks his head to the side. It’s unlike Mackenzie to be nervous, and what with the nature of their admittedly comfortable relationship, he can think of nothing that should make her so.

Let’s get hitched.

Shock brings his eyebrows upwards, and he squints infinitesimally, as if not sure she’s serious. Reading her expression in detail, he realizes she’s nothing short of steadfast, and a touched smile pulls at his lips. “Why, Mackenzie, darling... Are you proposing to me?” His tone is carefully playful, but there’s no denying the emotion in his voice.

“You’re sure? You don’t want some fancy, Catholic service or anything?”
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 Mackenzie Darling
Bold of you to assume I need Tinder.
Alright, plan. This weekend. Pack your bags.
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 Mackenzie Darling
I wasn’t exactly being careful.
Pick a place, anywhere your heart desires.
I think we deserve a vacation.

Mackenzie Darling
Daaaaamn. We look good.
Sometimes you gotta swim through some crazies, okay?
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 Mackenzie Darling
Ah, sh-t...
Should’ve known I’d be run out of town eventually.
I’ll just have to widen my range.

Mackenzie Darling
Send it to me.
Jasper Thompson 01/03/19 Mackenzie Darling
Why would I be upset? I’m sure there are lots of pictures of me on the Internet.
Wait, are you upset? How bad is it?
Kit Shannon 01/02/19 "It's cute that you think I'd end up in bed with people who can afford to live somewhere with housekeeping. I think you've stumbled on the wrong writhing heap of lady parts. Please try harder."
Kit Shannon 01/02/19 "Why? Why haven't you found me yet? Am I not being gay enough? Am I not eating enough ice cream? Where are you?!"
Jasper Thompson 01/01/19 Without even lifting his head, he reaches a hand around her and tangles his fingers in the corpse’s hair. Lifting the head unceremoniously, he reveals Miss Crazy Eyes, herself. “You already did. I believe you specifically saved her for dessert.”
Jasper Thompson 01/01/19 “Yes, well, your kind,” he groans accusingly, sparing her a somewhat withering glare from his slumped state against the bar, “talk. As such, I’ve become a pretty well-known, what was the word... assh0le, b-stard, f-ckboy... Take your pick.” He waves a hand idly, incapable of keeping the laughter from bubbling up afterward, much as it pains his aching head.
Jasper Thompson 01/01/19 Mackenzie makes her stand, and unable to help himself, Jasper locks eyes with his recently scorned date. You shouldn’t feel too bad for her, though, as she’s already on the arm of the biggest dude he’s probably ever seen. Still, there’s no mistaking the dark twist to her mouth as Mack stakes her claim, but before she can decide on what to do in retaliation, she’s already forgotten again.

A pout greets Mackenzie as she descends from her makeshift podium, amidst cheers and jeers from the crowd. “Not only have you potentially affected my working in this town at all,” he begins his playful chastising with a glint in his eyes, “but you’re making me wait until midnight. You’re a devil of a woman, Darling.”
Jasper Thompson 12/31/18 A stormy gaze would finally trail after the woman, the smirk widening all the more. Her touch draws his attention back, however, and he takes a hearty pull from his own glass before mindfully setting it down in the face of her mischief. If he were a more responsible man, he would take the lapse in his quota seriously, but that’s a problem for future Jasper. As it stands, he’s wholly preoccupied.

“I wouldn’t want to ruin your mean streak, no.” She is, of course, a welcome distraction from his night’s work.
Jasper Thompson 12/31/18 An electric shock touches his arm as she nonchalantly brushes past. In the middle of a dreadful conversation about this woman’s dead dog, he narrows his eyes and, unashamedly, smirks. She falters, sputtering slightly as her original idea of him is shattered in the face of his inconsideration; Fido was her childhood companion, after all.

Indifferent, Jasper signals to the barkeep to put the two drinks on his tab. Turning back to his wasted victim, he cants his head to the side and grins wickedly. “I’m sorry, Bridget, I just realized someone better has stepped into the bar.” A zinger of a slap rings across his face, and he laughs heartily, reveling in the stinging sensation. Jasper won’t bother to turn back to her, though, knowing full-well she’s already stalked from the vicinity with hurt feelings and a need for validation.

No harm, no foul.

A flourish brings him to face Mackenzie and he takes up one of the glasses and raises it in a mock salute. “You just can’t help yourself, can you.” There’s a lightness in his tone that welcomes the interference.
Jasper Thompson 12/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I know. But he’s done this before. Probably just another experiment gone wrong.
He’ll be back. I know it.
Jasper Thompson 12/22/18 Mackenzie Darling
It’s not because you can’t be trusted.
I’m trying to keep you safe.
Jasper Thompson 12/22/18 Mackenzie Darling
Oh? And what’s my reason then?
Find a new hobby. Take up knitting.
Jasper Thompson 12/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
No.
I just know how you’ve been feeling lately, with me constantly over your shoulder.
Jasper Thompson 12/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
It’s a work thing?
That, and I figured you’d need some time away from me.
Jasper Thompson 12/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
It’s like you don’t even know me.
I meant to go to LA because my clientele has gotten a bit sparse in New York.
Alas. London.
Jasper Thompson 12/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
I accidentally got on a plane to London.
I’ll be back on Sunday.
Miss me.
Jewel 12/20/18 Agrees with the nod of her head. "Of course." Wasn't a wave maker and definitely wasn't about to put in a formal complaint but wanted Mack to know -- she saw her. Saw what she was up to. It made her laugh a little.. now.
Jewel 12/20/18 "He's an a-s."

Simply put. Jewel was only making a small huff. She'd survive. There was always ways to force submission.

Jewel 12/20/18 I think we're past being coy.
Jewel 12/20/18 You did that on purpose, didn't you?
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’m twiddling my thumbs.
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’ll be waiting patiently in the office.
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
I think I need to be wooed.
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 No
Read 6:31pm
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Playing Dumb
As if I need to tell you.
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Oh, we’re changing names now
As if you didn’t know.
Jasper Thompson 12/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
Do you? That’s an insult to your slew of admirers.
Livia Vlcek 12/19/18 No words..
Look man, I don't know what you do on your time but that's not my thing. I'm just trying to get high.
Livia Vlcek 12/19/18 Rude
So you don't have any special baked goods? Well that blows..
Livia Vlcek 12/19/18 Got your number off a bathroom wall
What can I get for 50 bucks and a pack of gum?
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 -narrows eyes-
-glances up at-
-mumbles incoherently-
-sticks tongue out at-
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 Mackenzie Darling
You severely overestimate my give-a-f-ck.
We live in a place where fatbergs form.
With someone who likes to push people into them.
Adapt. And. Overcome.
B-tch. 🖤
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 Mackenzie Darling
So? I stored snacks and booze in them from the last time you got too handsy.
You don’t scare me.
Adapt and overcome, b-tch.
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 Mackenzie Darling
It’s really trouble, I won’t tell anyone.
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 Mackenzie Darling
Aw, you really are a prude.
Is this your way of asking me to arrange a threesome for you?
Jasper Thompson 12/19/18 Mackenzie Darling
Then you’re not properly utilizing the threesome.
You get the best of whatever worlds you want.
But they’re also notoriously easy to come by, so if you have a bad experience, you can just try again.
Jasper Thompson 12/18/18 Mackenzie Darling
How could you ever leave a threesome dissatisfied?
Jasper Thompson 12/18/18 Mackenzie Darling
Why wouldn’t they?
Jasper Thompson 12/18/18 In the middle of the tunnel system, Jasper has a mind to check his phone. Reading the message from Mack, he c0cks a brow, looks around, and smirks. As loudly as possible, with a deep inhale to fuel the cacophony, he would announce to the entire coven:

“MACKENZIE IS A F-CKIN’ PRUUUUUUUDE.”
Valentin Metzger 12/17/18 -huffs a laugh- Ja? Funny, I have heard the same of you..
-winks, keeps walking-
Elisa Stratten 12/16/18 Does this also make Hingle my b!tch? -plotting-
Elisa Stratten 12/16/18 What perfect timing. My husband died today.
But hey, what can you do?
Saito Eiji 12/16/18 yeet
Elisa Stratten 12/16/18 -Shakes off the excess water like a wet dog-
WOMAN. WHAT DID YOU DO?
Elisa Stratten 12/16/18 -Stands frozen in shock dripping wet, with a blank face.-
Like this?
-Blinks-
Dr Van Helsing 12/16/18 I was just thinking, you look like a Call Girl I knew in Dublin.
Malek 12/14/18 Pauses in front of the Vampire, cigarette dangling from the left corner of his mouth and smoldering away, sending up a cloud of acrid smoke to halo his damaged face. Iridescent eyes are squinted slightly against the sting of the offending carbon as it swirls and trails into them. Scarred features are fixed in a mask of innocent seriousness as he stares at the woman.

Quiet.

Calm.

Slowly, he pulls the half-empty bottle of Wild Turkey up to his lips and, without removing the cigarette, takes a hefty drink, replacing a good quarter of the contents with air in a series of quick glugs of the potent liquor.

Slowly, his left hand lifts up and points to the ground behind the woman perhaps foot to her right side.

"Y'dropped yer pock't," the stocky lycan says in all seriousness. He stares blankly at her for a moment longer before walking away. His duty is done, yes?
Jasper Thompson 12/13/18 Caught like a deer in headlights, he has elegantly just stuffed an entire biscuit in his mouth when she chooses to call upon him. Eyes dart around, looking for what she could possibly be talking about while attempting to swallow his snack whole. In case anyone was wondering, it’s not working. Finally, his gaze finds the manhole over head and he points at it with a questioning look before the expression melts into one of dismay. “Not thith one too?”
Jasper Thompson 12/11/18 The battle ensues, the lump convulsing and limbs jutting out occasionally, but he finally obtains the high ground. Sleep is very important to Jasper; as such, being awoken from it isn’t his favorite thing. So, with Mackenzie thoroughly locked up tight in a death embrace, all limbs accounted for, he presses a kiss to her forehead and promptly returns to his slumber.
Jasper Thompson 12/11/18 Glaring at his phone, knowing she’s right next to him, he types an angry message back.

Mackenzie Darling
No.
Yoshima 12/11/18 A faint laugh crossed his face, despite chattering teeth.
"Having God-fearing thoughts now, huh?"
Regardless, he gratefully wrapped the Vampire's sweater around his hips, loincloth style. Like a good boy.
"No worries. God and I, we're not exactly close these days."
Gyldi 12/10/18 -snickers intangibly-
LillyEmperium 12/09/18 *grinning Lilly slips a bottle in Mack's pocket*
Yoshima 12/09/18 Squints back. Slight smirk. "this can go around...maybe, my arm". He didn't have HD LED Vampire vision anymore. She looks strange. "A little less...sharp". Oops. Did he say that out loud?
Jasper Thompson 12/08/18 His expression melts into something like a not-so-masterfully hidden snarl. Taking a deep breath, he collects himself, plastering a smile on his face that only proves to darken his eyes. “No, I can’t believe that sh-t...”

What a gross excuse for a man.

Within a moment, he’s shaken himself from the memory of Victor Lockheed, choosing instead to focus on better things. “Well, come on, then. Maybe an entire family, huh? Just for the fun of it...”
Jasper Thompson 12/08/18 His arm tightens across her shoulders, eyebrows furrowing in sympathy and irritation, all in one fluid emotion. Ecstasy, of all things, when she’s going to meet a recently scorned, childish ex. He can only imagine what was in those texts, and he won’t ask her to relive it.

Her drug of choice not being his first for such a delicate situation, reason number one being that she’s much too emotional, he opts to raise her spirits instead. “Bah, don’t worry about Ol’ Man Victor, he’s just realizing what he’s lost and lashing out. You wanna go for some food? Or just the simple act of killing? Londoner’s have always been some of my favorite people to kill. I think yes the accent...”
Jasper Thompson 12/07/18 “Gentle, gentle,” he insists lightly, thoroughly hungover and paying the price. Still, he manages to pepper the side of her head with a multitude of kisses, glancing inconspicuously at Gray as he hurried forward and away from them. Probably for the best.

Lazily, he drapes an arm across her shoulders, following after with a much slower tread. “This just had to be today, huh.” He’s kidding, for the most part. Yes, any other day probably would’ve been better, but...

“How are you doing?” Jasper’s tone is suddenly more solemn, concern taking precedent. They’d been through a lot in the days since being apart, and now, they are about to jump head first into a potentially dreadful situation. He feels utterly sh-tty, and she’s high as a damn kite.

They are doing great.
Jasper Thompson 12/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
How helpful.
Jasper Thompson 12/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Oh, good. You’re high.
I’m hungover and so, so close to death, but it’s fine.
Let me just... board a plane.
Jasper Thompson 12/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Impose?
Should I just kill him now?


Mackenzie Darling
Kidding.

Mackenzie Darling
...unless I’m not?
Jasper Thompson 12/06/18 Though her words are comforting, it’s a fleeting relief, one that he knows will wear off as soon as he’s alone. For now, he will hold onto it, breathing in the shaky truth before it crumbles around him, leaving him guilty and self-disparaging. The grief process is proving to be wholly unpleasant, he’s decided he wasn’t missing out on much.

“I’ll be home soon. I’ll leave sometime tomorrow, I’m sure.” There’s a lengthy pause after he speaks, hesitating to get off the phone and face his demons. By now, he’s blindly wandered into his old room, a forgotten bottle of whiskey staring at him from the night stand. He c0cks an eyebrow and takes it for a sign.

“Love you, Mack,” he reminds her softly as his fingers grasp the neck of the bottle, “and I’ll be back before you know it...”
Jasper Thompson 12/06/18 They have a shared tendency to deflect, and Jasper smiles into the phone. It’s a sad, fleeting thing, and he’s glad she can’t see it. “I don’t know how I am,” he speaks openly, voice soft and unsure. “I don’t want to read it. I already know I failed, and I imagine there’s only one thing she would’ve given me, and...”

He clears his throat noisily.

Carefully, he folds the letter and returns it to its envelope for safe keeping. “It’s so quiet here.” If nothing else, that would have been good enough reason for Gray to call him here, to not have to face the deafening silence alone. “You’ll be okay until I get back?” The question in his voice tells of his concern, and if she asked it of him, he’d be on the first plane back.
Jasper Thompson 12/06/18 After having excused himself from Gray’s presence, Jasper finds himself a quiet place in the dead compound - not a hard task, mind you - to make what would surely prove to be a hard phone call. For a moment, all he can do is stare at the phone, finger hovering over the call button. He sighs, and presses it to his ear.

When she picks up, they’ll exchange quick greetings that are, on his part, stalling what’s to come. It’s unavoidable at this point, and he extracts the letter, pausing as he works himself up to unfold it. “I don’t want to do this,” he laughs humorlessly, finally resigning himself.

“My *****,

I still wish you hadn't gone full lost the plot and spared my sister, but more importantly spared my jew. Either way I guess I would be here? What the **** even happens when an undead thing dies? I'm going to be down pissed if they don't have ciggies or gin up there.. or down there.. or whereever the ****. I, Spring Weed, leave you ****ing Victor. I don't know what the **** else to leave you besides your hobo even though he's already yours. I'm also leaving you my ****ing clothes. You better ****ing wash them, freak.

Spring”


He manages to keep a level tone throughout, only pausing momentarily to gather himself once more. Maybe this had been a bad idea, as he wants nothing more than to be with her through this. “You okay?” he asks after a quiet minute of reflection.
Jasper Thompson 12/06/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’ll call you in a little bit.
We’ll read it together.
Jasper Thompson 12/06/18 Mackenzie Darling

Spring wrote us letters. She’s also apparently left us sh-t.
Gray’s in charge of making sure it gets to where it needs to go.
Do you want me to read it to you and bring whatever back with me?
Jasper Thompson 12/04/18 Mackenzie Darling
Asap. Promise.
Jasper Thompson 12/04/18 Mackenzie Darling
As soon as I can.
Jasper Thompson 12/04/18 Mackenzie Darling
You’re making me homesick...
Jasper Thompson 12/04/18 Mackenzie Darling
Blue’s always uncomfortable.
He called me shady the other day.
Shady. Me.
Elisa Stratten 12/03/18 Mack
Whatever, MOM. I KNOW YOU CAN'T SEE ME, BUT IM ROLLING MY EYES AT YOU.
Elisa Stratten 12/03/18 Mack
If there isn't spiked punch at this party, I'm leaving.
Jasper Thompson 12/03/18 -...-
-.....-
-lower lip might be trembling-
-wipes at eyes, like a man-
Thanks, that’s really kind of you to notice...
Jasper Thompson 12/02/18 Mackenzie Darling
This isn’t about that.
It sounds like an emergency, I’m boarding the plane now.
I’ll let you know what’s going on as soon as I know.
Be safe.
Jasper Thompson 12/02/18 Mackenzie Darling
I need to go to Moscow for a couple days.
Can you hold down the fort without me?
Iva Herrera 11/30/18 I know.
-tosses hair-
-remembers decorum-
Thank you!
Malek 11/30/18 Missed you too...
Jasper Thompson 11/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Gasp.
Are you taking me on a date?
Jasper Thompson 11/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You’re such an inspiration.
Jasper Thompson 11/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
That’s a really cool super power.
Khellen 11/28/18 Mummy
Quarters provided by Sine Metu are, of course, lovely.
But personally.. The grass is warm and the air is fresh.
I prefer the open outdoors.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 He offers a cheesy grin to the camera as she presses a kiss to his cheek, gummy bears sticking to his teeth rather grotesquely. It’s only after the snap is taken that he finishes chewing the hulking mass in his mouth and swallows it painfully. “Fine, though it’s a bit like chewing a tire.” He shrugs for effect before fixing her with a pout. “You didn’t tell me I look pretty...”
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 He pops another gummy bear into his mouth, lounging against the wall. Humming something that sounds like a mesh of classic Christmas songs, it’s clear he’s indifferent toward anyone that might pass him by. Jasper is secure enough in his masculinity to rock lingerie, make no mistake.

When Mackenzie rounds the corner, he lights up like a damn Christmas tree, immediately holding out the bag to her. “I don’t know about all that, but this is surprisingly comfortable.” When she snaps a picture, he frowns gloriously, waving his hand in indignation. “No, let me pose, c’mon, do another.” Turning his back to her to showcase he cheeks, he offers a over-the-shoulder pout.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Oh, good, yes, convenient.
I have no idea where I am.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Come get high with me.
I’m still in women’s underwear.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Sh—t...
I ate half this bag already.
You might have to save me later.
But I got them.
Also, who tf is Hubbae?
Anyway, I sent him a picture.
Again, you might have to save me later.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Sh-t.
Between you and me, I did a loooot of mushrooms.
I think I’m in Camille’s room.
Do you think she’ll notice?
Who sent her a fuzzy bra?
She won’t notice, our dementions aren’t that different.
The panties, though... she might notice those.
I’m keeping them.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Omg
Omg, I love it.
The fuzzy bra doesn’t fit, though.
You got my dementions wrong.
Jasper Thompson 11/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
If you want me to open things before Christmas, you don’t wrap them as Christmas presents.
Don’t ruin this for me.
Jasper Thompson 11/27/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’ll save it for later. I can’t waste the blush without witnessing it with my own eyes.
It’s not Christmas. I’ll open it on Christmas.
Jasper Thompson 11/27/18 Mackenzie Darling
How could I not be?
You do my work for me, and you’re beautiful.
Utter perfection.
Jasper Thompson 11/27/18 Mackenzie Darling
That’s a... name.
Oh, good, I can exploit those talents at the Christmas party.
Jasper Thompson 11/27/18 Mackenzie Darling
I believe our definitions of pretty are slightly different, but go on.
Jasper Thompson 11/26/18 Mackenzie Darling
Debatable.
Be there in ten.
Jasper Thompson 11/26/18 Mackenzie Darling
Did you want an answer to that question, or did you just want me to meet you?
I feel like a lot of time was wasted on that for both of us.
Jasper Thompson 11/25/18 Jasper shuffles into the office sleepily, a blanket wrapped around his entirety, and sinks into his chair. Staring ahead, he doesn’t really see Mackenzie until he sees Mackenzie, and then, he only yawns. A smile stretches his mouth oddly, lopsided as it is, and he points at her as though readying to say something.

A moment passes.

And another.

Suddenly, he snorts, a sound indicative of the fact that he’s fallen back asleep, eyes open and finger still poised in thought.
Julliet Swan 11/20/18 Piercing blue eyes shot upward to meet the unexpected gaze. A smile tugged at her pale pink lips at the sound of that distantly familiar voice. It was true. Julliet had been caught red handed, quite literally. The angel bit her lower lip ever so slightly before she would admit,

"What can I say? Maybe I have a thing for Jaspers. Thank you for making that issue evident. You know what they say, the first step is admitting you have a problem."

Julliet lit another cigarette and allowed it to dangle from her lower lip as to allow one last glance at the vampiress. With that, Julliet smirked and continued forth in her direction, her heels clicking against the pavement as evenly as a metronome.
Jasper Thompson 11/19/18 A grunt comes from the lump beside her, along with a slight shift before the snoring resumes. Great minds, it appears, really do think alike.
Saito Eiji 11/18/18 About?
Jasper Thompson 11/18/18 “Heart-fractured, but not broken, I guess.” A forlorn sigh carries upward, his hand coming to rest on one of the rungs that had carried him up and down many times. “Goodbye, old friend.”

He might be laying it on a bit thick.

Turning, he casts her a dazzling smile, cheeky as ever. “Anything else? Your bed is calling to me, after all.”
Jasper Thompson 11/18/18 “Both, I suppose.” Jasper comes up behind her, offering a solid shrug to his quip. He tosses the last of his cigarette away, rolling his shoulders and neck as he does. Sleep has been elusive lately, but he’d do anything for his darling Mackenzie. “What’s up?”
Jasper Thompson 11/18/18 Mackenzie Darling
Require, or desire?
Jasper Thompson 11/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’m more referring to the ones that aren’t carrying my seed.
Jasper Thompson 11/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
By all means, kill women.
Just not the ones I need.
Jasper Thompson 11/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
Don’t put me behind schedule, please.
You’re toying with my life, Darling.
Jasper Thompson 11/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
Please don’t.
I need this one to go to term.
Jameson Orlav 11/12/18 I had a feeling the other men in your life weren’t measuring up.
Gyldi 11/10/18
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Of course.
Be there soon.
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
You, me, and a bottle.
Tonight.
We need to talk, and I need to drink.
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Your tastes sure have changed.
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Recognize. What are you hungry for?
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Want me to bring home dinner?
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Welp, I guess there’s no point in coming home then, if there’s nothing to come home to.
Jasper Thompson 11/07/18 Mackenzie Darling
Soonish. In the meantime, don’t miss me too much.
Jasper Thompson 11/03/18 “Don’t call my integrity into question.” The glare she’s fixed with is withering, as if he’s truly affronted by her gall. “I take care of my own, okay?”

His interest piqued again, he considers her unworded request, a smirk stretching his lips wickedly. “We’ll see. Maybe Santa will be good to you, this year.”
Jasper Thompson 11/03/18 Jasper plucks the cigarette from her mouth and puffs greedily, a curious gaze landing on her. “Okay, I’ll bite. What about them?”
Jasper Thompson 11/02/18 Extracting his favorite, he tosses it over his shoulder, knowing she’d catch it. “I believe it’s your turn, right?” He turns abruptly, facing her with a glint in his eye. “You know the rules, and don’t hold back.”
Jasper Thompson 11/02/18 Smirking, he rises from the chair and crosses over to the door, leaning in close as he passes. “You should keep better care of your things, then.” In her bedroom, he pulls out the top drawer - again - and looks it over. “Yep, just how I left it.”
Jasper Thompson 11/02/18 An eyebrow c0cks as his sights land on her, and he shrugs his shoulders. “Maybe. Why, what’s in there?”
Jasper Thompson 11/02/18 Love you, too.
Jasper Thompson 11/02/18 I do watch the goods, I watch them leave every time you dip your hands into my pants.

Mackenzie just stole $40.00 from you!
Jameson Orlav 11/01/18 Jasper? Like the f-cking ghost?
Smells like a goddamn goat.
You taken to frolicking in a barn?
-sneers-
Jameson Orlav 11/01/18 You can’t banish me.
This isn’t a Disney movie.
And what the f-ck is that smell.
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
You never threaten to cut me...
Jameson Orlav 11/01/18 You’ll have to catch me first, mummy.
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
I think you mean protégé.
And that’s gross.
You really need to rein it in on these people.
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
Who tf is Jameson? Jamison? The new girl?
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
That’s because you date sh-tty men.
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
Is he gay?
Do you not know how men work?
If I woo him and he’s not into guys, it tends to have the opposite effect.
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
Virgil. F-ck. Who names someone that?
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Mackenzie Darling
Are you struggling?
Is it because you call everyone pet?
Jasper Thompson 11/01/18 Jasper catches the head reflexively, his face lighting up with excitement. He returns the embrace before looking over the cranium lovingly. “This is perfect. I gave away my best head to the new girl today, and now I have a better replacement.”
Tiber Loche 10/27/18
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Luna Loves Good
Wanna whomp my willow?
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Bellatrix LeBabe
Done.
I’m gonna look so hot.
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Hottest Slytherin
It’s Halloween, Mack.
Of course we can.
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Madame Prude
Showing some skin is not the breaking point of virtue.
Come on, live a little.
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Rudest Prudest
You used to have fun.
What happened?
When did you become this?
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Old af Lady
Yes, you absolutely are wearing it.
Don’t be anti-feminine.
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
Alright, spinster, we’re going out this Halloween.
The crazies are the best f-ckin’ part, so don’t argue.
Jasper Thompson 10/20/18 Mackenzie Darling
Slytherin, duh?
Don’t say that like it’s a bad thing.
Don’t you go outside on Halloween? I’m thinking you must not because if you did, you wouldn’t be asking that question.
LillyEmperium 10/18/18 Anytime darlin
Jasper Thompson 10/18/18 “You have the best ideas.” Jasper hugs her tightly, pressing overeager and overexaggerated kisses into her hair. “Wait, is Hocus Pocus on Netflix?”
WildKat 10/18/18 Congrats on PotD!
LillyEmperium 10/18/18 Well lookie lookie who's most popular today. Congrats
Jasper Thompson 10/18/18 “You been on my mind,” the man sings - poorly, mind you - then stops, eyes darting around frantically before he just mumbles the next set of unknown words. Shrugging, he scoops her into a whirl of a dance, ending it with a dip before twirling her into a straightened position again. “Can’t stop thinking about you today, did you spike breakfast?”
Jasper Thompson 10/16/18 Mackenzie Darling
I can handle myself, Darling.
Right now, I need you to focus on your own predicament.
We can reconvene later.
Jasper Thompson 10/16/18 Mackenzie Darling
It’s going well, I’d say.
I think.
Jasper Thompson 10/16/18 Mackenzie Darling
Stay safe.
Don’t make me come find you.
LillyEmperium 10/14/18 *It was no secret they'd know each other for a long time. Nor was it a secret, Lilly was loyal to Mackenzie. Over the years, she'd learned to read her fairly well. Her comment about one day thanking her lucky stars, did stir a light chuckle out of Lilly as she raised her glass as well. Giving a light nod, Lilly spoke* To a bright future... *taking a drink Lilly gave a light chuckle and continued* Though if you want him neutered... *she gave a grin, slid a pack smokes and lighter over to Mackenzie* we could always have a bonfire....
LillyEmperium 10/14/18 *producing to glass, Lilly sat down. No she didn't wait to be asked to sit, she just did it. She'd seen this person before, years ago. She knew that look upon Mackenzie's face. Slowly she poured the glasses full of the amber liquid. Sliding a glass over she spoke*
yes...yes they can. The right one can make your world, while the wrong one can send it spinning downward.

*lifting her glass she took a drinks she thought for a moment *
so dare I presume someone needs reminded who to treat women?
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
So you’re not going alone, then.

Mackenzie Darling
I’m already here.
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
What are you not telling me?
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Do you need me to go with you?
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
...mind telling me what’s in London that I’m to avoid, but you’re to march right into?
LillyEmperium 10/14/18 *Lilly approached Mackenzie, offering an aged bottle of whiskey. The blonde headed often pain in the ass, looked at her for a moment before she spoke * come.... Drink... Plot whatever ...you look like you want to plot against someone....
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Got it. No trips to dreary f-cking London.
Jasper Thompson 10/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Don’t really have a reason to, why, what’s up?
Jasper Thompson 10/11/18 Do I? Do I wound you?
Because I’ve been waiting for you.
Haven’t touched a single mushroom.
You wound me.
Jasper Thompson 10/04/18 You’re lucky I love you. I’m feeling a strong urge to break my piggy bank so I can get all my money back.
Jasper Thompson 10/04/18 I’m not touchy. And no one’s coddling me. Except maybe you. And Gray.
Jasper Thompson 10/04/18 I’m not a charity case. I can get by on my own.
Jasper Thompson 10/04/18 Could you, like, stop stealing all my money?
How am I supposed to live, Mackenzie.
Adara Litvinova 10/03/18 -tries hard to not make a gag face-
-probably fails-

You'd do better offering steaks or just a cow. A cow for all the Irish in the Den...that seems fair.
Jasper Thompson 09/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Whaaaat? I’m already wearing my Holyhead Harpies sweatshirt.
En route to you.
Jasper Thompson 09/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
...without me??
Jasper Thompson 09/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Christ, why did you have it up that loud?
Getting old?
Jasper Thompson 09/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I don’t hear anything anymore.
What are you referring to?
Adara Litvinova 09/30/18 Hey neighbor! I have questions. -blinks- How does this neighbor thing work? Do I get to borrow a cup of sugar and you... drink all my good Irish whiskey?
Jasper Thompson 09/28/18 He waits, picking idly at a spot on his finger. The rustling that serves as elevator music is completely normal and healthy. She’s just processing.

I’m on my way.

He checks the clock, mentally noting her arrival time. “I’ll meet you at the airport.” What else is there to say? Best to save it for when they’re together. “Love you, Mack.”
Jasper Thompson 09/28/18 “‘Fraid you’re stuck with me,” he laughs lowly, hating what he has to tell her but not willing for her to hear it from anyone else. “I think you need to come to Moscow. If you want me to come back so I can travel with you, I will.”

He’s stalling, and it’s blatantly obvious. Leaning against the counter for support, Jasper looks up the ceiling, squeezes his eyes shut, and wills the words. “Spring is dead. I don’t know what happened. She just... died. She knew it was coming, as she seems to have made out a will.”
Jasper Thompson 09/28/18 Retreating into the bathroom of Gray’s slice of Death, he breathes a loose sigh. This is the part of his day he’d been dreading the most, and with good reason. Jasper hates being the bearer of bad news.

His thumb hovers over the call button before he punches the bridge of his nose, hits it, and presses the phone to his ear. It rings. And rings. F-ck, that ring.

When she inevitably picks up, he’ll greet her normally as possible. “Hey, my beautiful darling,” he coos, a lack of conviction in his tone, “I’m sorry I didn’t call sooner. It’s... listen, we need to talk...”
Adara Litvinova 09/25/18 -blows kiss- Köszönöm!
Jasper Thompson 09/24/18 “You’re absolutely right, I’m allowed,” he smirks, sitting back in his own chair, “it goes both ways, remember. And you’ve been robbing me dry.”
Jasper Thompson 09/21/18 Jasper scoops her up and presses fleeting kisses to her hair, not even minding the clear ulterior motive. “As my potential future wife, you’re entitled to everything I have, right?” The man smirks, ushering her inside and shutting the door behind them. “Let’s go, let’s go, I’m starving.”
Jasper Thompson 09/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’m two blocks away.
Let me in, I forgot my key.
We can work on that.
Jasper Thompson 09/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
You make me want to be a better man.
Jasper Thompson 09/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
Don’t I know that, it’s just that the person I am lacks the patience and planning.
And you brought me dinner?
Darling, if I didn’t know better, I’d say you were in love with me.
Jasper Thompson 09/21/18 Mackenzie Darling
Darling, sweetest beauty, do forgive me, I’ve been distracted.
I’m on my way over now.
Jasper Thompson 09/16/18 Mackenzie Darling
You can’t have your cake and eat it, too, darling.
Meaning if I have to get rid of mine, you have to get rid of yours.
Jewel 09/15/18 Perhaps? I mean, does she look the type to cry while rocking in place? Sure! But you know? It's one of her endearing qualities that just makes her special.
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Darling, I look like a hairless rodent. I truly believe you would not be flaunting this look yourself.
That’s wonderful, and you know it’s absolutely reciprocated, but “the enemy” is super hot, and when my hair grow back, it’s. f-cking. on.
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Don’t insult me. I can’t be that vain.
Tell me what, now?
Khellen 09/14/18 One day it will be me protecting you, since I will be so much stronk. Then we will all rejoice over the lack of interventions!
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Perfect, then you won’t mind if I slip off into oblivion while this sh-t grows back.
I’m not free until this sh-t grows back.
Khellen 09/14/18 Take away the down feathers. Not just hers- everyone's. More restrictions. More regulations. More training. No one will compete with me.
LillyEmperium 09/14/18 Shall have to search that one out.... Poor thong
Jameson Orlav 09/14/18 Ugh, well. In my personal opinion, it's not entirely becoming. Though it's more unfamiliar than anything else.
-tiny snarl-
A new plaything, perhaps?
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Actually, that tells me all I need to know. He basically fills in the slot that any common, one night stand could do. It’s a shame, he should cuddle you more.
Yes, he is, but he’s mine. I take what I can get. Not like anyone else will have me in this condition.
It’s your discomfort, not mine.
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
Honestly, then, what is that Redcoat for?
If you need to, you can borrow Gray.
I’m going to be feeling like a pin cushion anyway.
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
You dirty, lying, betraying sk-nk.
It doesn’t matter, though, because it was mine, for me, and no one else.
I hope you got your fill of me, I’m not coming out of this cave until it grows back.
Jasper Thompson 09/14/18 Mackenzie Darling
...I look gross.

Mackenzie Darling
And my hair. 😫
Jameson Orlav 09/14/18 -eyes skeptically-
There's an... Unfamiliar smell about you...
Jasper Thompson 09/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
Shucks. Are you trying to woo me? Because it’s working.
Jasper Thompson 09/13/18 Mackenzie Darling
As if you even have to ask.
You’re my number one everything.
Katherine Murray 09/12/18 Wee Irish
Soon. I just happen to be in New York.
And I have a mighty thirst for gossip and booze.
Though, not that weak stuff you Irish drink.
Time and place, I will be there.
Jasper comes too.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
With my track record, there is a very likely chance that I’ll be single and you won’t be. So please, if that happens, don’t eat my cats.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
Fine. But next time, just let me b-tch and become a spinster.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
When do you become my voice of reason?
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
You know how I did it, like a petty b-tch.
It’s fine. I’ll handle it.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
I told him we were going home.
And I didn’t follow after when he walked away.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
I don’t want him to beg on his knees. Some f-cking acknowledgment would be nice though.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
No, he just seems to think that I’ve done something to offend him and thinks he’s above having to right his wrongs.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
No, I don’t want to give him the satisfaction.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
Turns out I hate men, too.
I’m going to be an old spinster.
Maybe cats will love me.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
You always were rebellious.
Jasper Thompson 09/10/18 Mackenzie Darling
Stop sucking my fun, you fun sucker!
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
Hmm, probably true. I fear you and hate people with you.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
I really don’t know why everyone likes you more than me.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
He did.
I don’t think he likes me much. :(
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
Ah, good ole Lobster Back.
Tell him I miss him.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
You just haven’t seen my pretty Jew from the right angle.
He’s really quite stunning.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
I do love a good piece of eye candy.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
...that sounds utterly beautiful.
Temptation, thy name is...?
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
🖤
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
You’re always my knight.
[Location attached]
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mackenzie Darling
I don’t know, I’m somewhere in a swamp.
Gray lied to me about something important.
I’m currently setting trees on fire.
I’m an emotional b!tch and need my darling.
Jasper Thompson 09/09/18 Mack
SOS.
Jasper Thompson 09/05/18 Brilliant, as ever.
Jasper Thompson 09/05/18 Bah, f-ck me. I’m sorry, Mack. I’ve been too self-involved.
You can have both my ears. What’s up?
Jasper Thompson 09/05/18 Beautiful. You’re a beautiful mastermind.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Ditto, you beautiful f-cking b-tch.
Somewhere ruralish, where there’s no one to pry and where I can take my sweet goddamn time.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You’ve always been my knight in shining armor.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’ll try not to find offense in that.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I never thought you were.
And, for the sake of clarity, I’m a wonderful husband to the right woman.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You and me against the world.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Agreed. After this, I’m done.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You take mine, I take yours.
It’s in the rules.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I have one. So now we can just not worry and have fun.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Is that a gay joke?
Listen, he’s learning.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
I know, isn’t he pretty?
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Whatever you need.
...but you’ll never forget.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Lie? To you? I can’t.
Live with this truth.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
And I’m telling you, he’s absolutely not.
Quite the opposite, in fact.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Oh, I’m sorry, you just wanted me to tell you in explicit detail?
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Love you infinitely more.
And absolutely not, but I’ll leave it to your imagination.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
😘
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Please, for me.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Show me that rule book, I don’t remember threatening your Redcoat.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You know, it’s actually never come up in conversation.
Remember that thing about playing nice though?
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
...aww...
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Mack... what is that? What are you doing?
You’re upset?
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
Gray Taylor is f-cking someone.
It’s me.
He’s here to. Play nice.
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
You want to hear some tea before you get here?
Jasper Thompson 08/30/18 Mackenzie Darling
They hate everyone equally.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
When shall I expect you? I’ll have to put on pants.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
You have my heart, after all.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
Are you offering yourself to me?
I’ll make you breakfast in the morning, I’m not that terrible.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
Ah, yes.
“This is my friend, he likes d-ck and flirting with felonies, he’s a great catch.”
Maybe we should wait until after this blows over, yeah?
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
It was a bar fight.
Dude pulled a gun on me.
I lost my temper.
He didn’t make it out of surgery.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
Seriously? F-ck New Orleans.
I’m never coming back.
One random dude dies, and it’s the end of the f-cking world.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
Well, I’m stuck here until the trial is over.
And I’m losing my f-cking mind. Come keep me out of trouble for a couple days?
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
I don’t know if there will be?
There’s a chance it might get thrown out.
But cops don’t like me.
You know, because of the person that I am.
Jasper Thompson 08/29/18 Mackenzie Darling
I’m in New Orleans.
I may have landed some legal trouble.
Don’t freak out.
Jasper Thompson 08/28/18 Mackenzie Darling
Miss you. 🖤
Jasper Thompson 08/25/18 Mackenzie Darling
That sounds wildly unappetizing, what does he taste like? Is it good? Spicy, perhaps?
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Inwardly, Jasper groans; leave it to f-cking Mackenzie. “Just what I need, to be the new guy who assesses everyone’s intimate lives. I’m off to a wonderful start.”

There would undoubtedly be backlash for this faux pas.

Focusing in on something else, he gestures to the movie with his cigarette hand. “This isn’t even when Heath Ledger was hot. I hate his Fabio look, it’s an insult.”
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 He snorts, sticking his tongue out in a disgusted manner. “I would not, that f-cking lead dude is so unbearable. I never knew an actor could be so ugly and so terrible, all in one. Like, what’s his selling point?”

Jasper laughs at her assessment, taking two large swigs in succession before responding. “He doesn’t seem that bad, really. He just needs a good lay or two, get things loosened back up.” Pondering deliberately, he considers his friend before a smile breaks the tension. “You think Spring would be willing to bite the bullet for us?”
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 There’s a slight stiffening in his posture, though he moves to stretch and yawn. Taking the offered bottle, he passes off the topic with a shrug. “I think that Gray guy took care of it. I complained enough that I’m sure he wa tired of listening to me. Don’t think he likes me much.” He nudges her with the bottle to pass it back, laughter in his eyes. “Wonder if that’s anything to do with you.”

He groans theatrically at her choice, procuring a pack of cigarettes from his pocket and landing one in his lips before offering it up to her. “You do realize I’m not a chick, right? Why don’t we ever watch action movies? Oh, or old movies, with Fred astaire and sh-t.”
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 He gets the notification just as he reaches the top of the elevator. Rolling his storm colored eyes, they fall on Mack, who is indeed waiting at the door. He wiggles the phone at her, furrowing his brow in mock annoyance. “Don’t get your panties in a twist, I’m here. I brought rum, for after the vodka. I plan on getting sh-tfaced so you better be down.”

He presses a playful peck to her cheek as he passes, collapsing onto the couch comfortably. “Thanks for the heads up about the zombies, by the way. You know I hate them.” The glare he casts her is withering.
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
Don’t judge me.
I like to be free.
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
Sh-t, I have to wear clothes?
...make it twenty.
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
You haven’t met him? What use are you?
Be there in ten. Make sure the doors open or I’ll probably bust it down.
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
I can give you cuddles, but you have gossip for me.
What’s this about Kat’s Spaghetti Man?
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
Yes, well, I’m still trying to ensure your Redcoat likes me, remember?
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
Does something have to be wrong for me to want to see you?
Jasper Thompson 08/22/18 Mack
I need a drink and good company.
So where are you?
Jasper Thompson 08/18/18 An eyebrow and a smile are c0cked, and he tilts his head, watching her with deep curiosity. “Heels?” A click of his tongue initiates a shake of his head. “You really do it up in class, these days.”

Stooping, he pulls on his worn boots, not even bothering to change his clothes. Jasper isn’t inherently dirty; he just rocks the hobo chic look.

Satisfied, he opens the door and bows her out, that smirk ever present.
Jasper Thompson 08/18/18 Memory hadn’t served him through two separate deaths, so when she recounts what really went down, he shakes his head in disbelief. After all they’d been through, everything that happened, and the camaraderie that came with being a family...

Nothing.

Jasper collapses back on the couch, fuming. “More and more, I’m starting to see that.” It’s an absent-minded thought, as he leans his head back and let’s out a huff of annoyance.

Then, suddenly, a wicked grin splits his features.

“It means nothing. All we can do is wish her the best and move on. For now, let’s go hunt. I’m in the mood to kill something, for some reason.”
Jasper Thompson 08/18/18 Startled awake by the sudden summoning, he practically leaps out of his skin when she vaults over the coffee table. Fully coherent now, he stares down at her phone screen, a flurry of emotion clouding his gray gaze as he takes it all in. A new coven, an old face. But...

Not. A. Single. Mention.

“Loyalty remains dead in the Realm.” The words are dark as he hands back the device, meeting her fiery eyes with an irritation of his own. “Tell me what else.”
Jasper Thompson 08/14/18 -blinks innocently-
Why, darling, just your love and support, of course. -wicked grin-
Jasper Thompson 08/14/18 Good thing cash isn’t what I was looking for, darling Mackenzie.
Jasper Thompson 08/14/18 It’s part of my allure.
Jasper Thompson 08/14/18 You didn’t have to, my darling Mackenzie.
Jasper Thompson 08/14/18 All due respect, you’re a bit pale. Red ****tail, all the way.
Saito Eiji 05/25/18 Bruv you've got me at ten, so come at me again.
Elis Griffyn 04/19/18 Maccabee
I can assure you that Elis never comes first.
Gyldi 03/17/18 Walking a different plane than most of the living afforded one with the ability to see life essences. As the foot of this stranger came down on Gyldi’s tail and effectively through it, she wondered at her lack of aura entirely. Curiouser still was the fact that the “contact” - for lack of a better term - didn’t bring the usual warmth that came with passing through the living. Instead, it was icy, like the feeling she usually exchanged for their warmth.

As she would turn to go, the beasty would bound after, catching up until she cast her body through Mackenzie entirely. Just as expected, she was met with that curious ice, and she wondered if the woman felt the same. Turning her head until she looked over her shoulder, she cast Eiji a questioning look, hoping it would explain.
Saito Eiji 03/11/18 That's a funny way of asking for some devil's lettuce.
Saito Eiji 02/03/18
Tanvir Buckley 01/28/18 Return of the Mack
I'm listening...
Jack Horton 01/23/18 Mortals can melt into the crowd, lose themselves, keep their distance. But for the likes of him, of them, well, could they ever be that lucky? For how long can you hide with an eternity ahead of you? When you’ve used up every dark corner and have nowhere else to go?

When Jack had left, when he’d finally gone and closed the door of the cabin behind him, he knew her goodbye would be the last. Too many broken moments. Too much pain. Whatever state she was now in, all this time later, he had every faith that the emotional scars still lingered from all he’d put her through. But did that mean she didn’t still care? As he’d sat there every night, thinking of her. As he’d time and time again been told to ’give it a fcking rest already!’ by Tanvir as he’d once again found means to bring Mackenzie Brooks into conversation. They’d been something else, he’d tell her. Nothing quite like them had ever existed, and it never would again.

But now his journey was over, his fight for a freedom from the very thing that had clouded their relationship. Was he ‘fixed’? No. But he was in control. That wickedness, the evil that lived within him, he’d found the balance. He was Jack Horton and the monster, perfectly knotted together.

But it was too late now. He knew better. And as he sat at the desk in the suite of The London, NYC, hunched over the same damn piece of paper for hour six or seven, he couldn’t find a single word to write. He’d had such wonderful intentions. A ‘be safe’ here. An ‘it’s all over’ there. A note to let her know that what had taken him away, what had haunted them for years, was finally through. And a wish that she find happiness from whatever wreckage he’d left her in. Yes nothing flowed from the branded pen in his hand. Nothing but her name, Mackenzie, in his cursive script.

Finally, some hours later as the sun rose, spreading its light across him through the wide wall of windows, he sealed the envelope and pulled on his shoes to find the nearest post box.

Mackenzie,
Maireann lá go ruaig ach maireann an grá go huaigh.
Find you happiness.
Jack
Saito Eiji 01/21/18 I have absolutely no impulse control, so I'm in.
Jameson Orlav 01/20/18 If you think I’m putting on a Robin costume, you’re wrong.
Jameson Orlav 01/09/18
Jameson Orlav 11/07/16 I love it when you murmur such sweet nothings.
Saito Eiji 06/27/16 -Takes on his best possible Spanish accent.- Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare for shenanigans.
-Throws an opened bag of glitter and books it.-
Jack Horton 02/13/16 The revolution is coming. Not today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe just one day... one day more...
