The Badlands / Re: * ♕ * CHASE THE SUN. OPEN, DOG. *
« on: April 22, 2019, 03:49:27 PM »
Cat wasn't a cat person or a dog person. Or an animal person whatsoever. Anything that required them to look after something for more than a day or two, really. Animal or human. It was one of the reasons they had been reluctant to become a parent, but with Gavril and Molly doing most of the work, maybe it would be okay. Maybe Mo would grow up not totally messed up. But that was about as much as they could manage. A pet? Nope, too much work for something that, in the eyes of the boss, wasn't all that worth it.

If they had to pick between being a dog or cat person, most people could probably guess what they'd pick.

After Molly had adopted Charles, it became evident pretty quickly that Mo liked dogs. Dogs liked her. So when she saw the canine playing with Link and Mike, well, of course she wanted to get down from Cat's arms and play too. "No, Momo." They murmured, keeping their grip on her despite her squirming. "We don't know that dog." Oh, great, now she was on the verge of crying.

The Badlands / Re: DID IT BITE YOU -- open, feral dog attack
« on: April 22, 2019, 02:32:21 PM »
Pointing to Sheo's lie for the reason of his demotion and punishment was easy, but the situation had been far more complex than that. It wasn't lying to the leader that made him a traitor, it was turning his back on everything he'd done as a Badlander and what the rest of the group was still doing. Yeah, he might have reverted back to how he was before he had the fear of God in him, but what had happened during that time was what had happened. You couldn't convince Cat that they were wrong without countering every motivation and reason they had, and Sheo didn't seem to notice many of them to even try to rebut.

Cat glanced between Sheogorath and Rae, a vague look of skeptical consideration lingering on their face for a moment before smoothing over. They shrugged. "Right, well, better that he shot it before you got bit trying to fight it with your... bare hands?" They rolled their eyes. "We'll work on that." "We" didn't actually mean "you"; training the younger members of the Badlands was something they actually sort of liked doing, and it had been a while since they had done so. Most of the teens that were here before were gone, and Gabe had no interest in continuing his training. That was too bad.

The Badlands / Re: like a moth to flame >> joining
« on: April 22, 2019, 02:13:41 PM »
Cat watched Harper's face carefully, watching the minuscule retreat she made and her face fall. Aside from clearly being observant, there was no way to tell what they were thinking. Truthfully, there wasn't much to know. They were taking in information, processing it, filing it away for later unless something stuck out.

Nothing stuck out.

At long last a bit of amusement entered their expression and tone. "Dramatic enough to be one of us, isn't she?" They didn't care whatever consequences befell her when she returned home, but the apparent fact that she was returning home sort of sealed it for them that she wasn't looking for a new place to live, she was looking to infiltrate.

The Badlands / Re: rise above >> open; injury
« on: April 22, 2019, 02:01:13 PM »
There was one rule. One goddamn rule that they enforced constantly, yet was always getting broken. The one that they had made, that wasn't there prior to their takeover. Should they take it personally? Probably not, but they were. It shouldn't be that hard, it shouldn't be an issue. Ugh.

The sounds of the fight had drawn them over, though they only arrived in time to see Bob crumpling unconscious. They stared at everyone for a second, trying to figure out what to do or say. Surprisingly, after considering the scene, they didn't think that Mike was in the wrong here. Bob had shown to be just as volatile as him, and Cat doubted Mike would go for someone he'd already hurt and that had also been punished by them. Bob trying to get revenge seemed the most likely, especially because it was Mike bleeding, and Link stepping in and knocking Bob out to end it.

Finally they walked over, crouching next to the unconscious NPC. "He pick this fight?" They didn't look at anyone else, just studied the man's face. They were starting to get an idea, and that was never good.

The Badlands / Re: BRAINS CHANGE FROM HAND GRENADES -- missing
« on: April 22, 2019, 12:59:26 PM »
The fact that Cat was aware of Sheogorath's severe mental illness (mostly the PTSD from reading his journal) made everything they had done that much more fucked up. Instead of trying to get him the help he desperately needed, they'd used it against him. Was it something they were proud of? No, of course not. They weren't as ashamed as they should be, though. Because really, it was truly shameful.

Ah, but at long last, they had done one thing right. Was it enough? No. All it had been was giving the man their blessing to go get help in Springfield. Something that required nothing of them. It was support, at least. If only Cat was cognitive enough of the severity of Sheo's mental illness and that literally everything else that they were doing was wrong.

Cat was lounging in the Casino when they heard someone mentioning how he had been drinking with them one minute, then not to long later he was breaking down. Now he was no where to be seen. "For those of you that are wondering, he's checked himself into Springfield. He'll be back. Probably." They shrugged and took a sip of their drink - something fruity but nonalcoholic.

Northstar District / Re: DEEP IN THE ARCHIVES [open]
« on: April 22, 2019, 12:35:57 PM »
Loyalty was a tricky thing. They had a brand on their chest that boldly proclaimed their loyalty to the Badlands, but giving unconditional loyalty was something that they couldn't do. Not after giving it to Derick and getting used. They couldn't give anyone that kind of trust and power, not a collective or individual. But whatever they could give, the Badlands had. So did their family, and Creed. But anything beyond that?

More people were coming. They were thoroughly outnumbered now, and while that wasn't something that normally scared them, the fact that their body was in such a poor state and, if it came to a fight, would not react and respond the way it normally did made them... a bit nervous. Did it show? Of course not. They were a master of the blank expression, the only things that got through were things that they wanted to.

Freedom. Oh boy. They waited patiently for Green to finish his spiel, then they pulled out the handgun from the holster at their hip. The safety was still on, and their finger stretched out away from the trigger, so if one was able to see past the obvious threat it would be clear that they weren't planning on following through. They aimed it at Green. "Bang." They turned it on Chip. "Bang." By the time they turned the gun towards Eleanor, Alexander had stepped in front of her. Sure, whatever, their point had been made. "Bang."

They put the gun back in their holster and crossed their arms. "Alright. I ain't gotta do shit for you, but I've got bigger fish to fry and if you guys wanna play at being independent or whatever, go ahead. It ain't worth it for me to even pull the goddamn trigger. So let's talk and play nice."

//tw for mentions of injuries + attacks

"Please, don't tell me that Mo is taking over the position of Leader; she may very well outdo you."

Their face is still angled down towards Mo, so it might be hard for others to notice that one of their brows quirked upwards. "That's called snark, Mo. You're my kid so you're gonna have to get used to hearing it. You're gonna have to learn how to combat it, but we'll save that lesson for another day." There were actual important announcements they had to make.

"What do you think is on today's agenda? Orphanage?"

They closed their eyes for a moment, then lean down so their ear is next to Mo's mouth. "Think so? I do still have the receipt, but she's kinda old. Yeah? Alright, I guess an orphanage is on the agenda, sorry Angel." They straightened up, just barely avoiding her getting spit on their ear. "Shall we do the other stuff first, though?"

She laughed. "I'll take that as a yes. You know we got a couple new people this week? There was Dj. Deacon. Whatever. And a guy named Addams. You wanna give them your best welcome?" Cat clapped their hands once, which Mo was quick to mimic. "You know that's not all? We had someone else trying to join, someone from the Insurrection. I guess spies are something we've gotta be careful of now, too, huh?" Fucking hell. Couldn't they just piss off? Seriously. They didn't want to have to have Creed and Mike running goddamn background checks on everyone that wants to join.

God, the thought was exhausting and they wouldn't even be the one doing the check. "You know what we doing have to worry about anymore, though? Northstar. They got sick of us and I'm sick of them, so we're outta there. We're gonna leave them alone, and they're still gonna play nice. I know, I can't believe it either. We've got bigger things to worry about than keeping our thumb on Northstar, though, I want to make sure every Badlander is here, where they belong." They poked her nose, not saying it but definitely thinking protecting you.

"But hey, that just means everyone's home to dye eggs with you, and help you find eggs, huh? Grandma's having a fun little Easter event. You excited?" Mo laughed and batted at their wrist. One side of Cat's mouth quirked up at that. "It's gonna be fun. You'll love it." They kissed the top of her head. Even having adopted her a while ago, they were still stunned at how soft her red hair was.

"You know what isn't fun, though?" The smile faded from her face as the tone of their voice took on an edge, something that they actually felt sort of guilty over. "Papa getting attacked. That happened twice this week, and Tata got attacked too. Can you believe it?" They leaned down again, placing their ear a few inches from her mouth once more. Suddenly they jerked away, one hand flying to their ear before rooting around in their pocket for a handkerchief. "Yeah. I don't know what's ballsier, that they did that or that you just spit in my ear." The ominous edge to their voice was gone now, replaced with something that was still serious but in a more "I can't believe you just did that" way.

Cat wiped their ear with the handkerchief, then wiped her mouth. "Well, you think we should thank the people that gave me an assist?" To their delight, she actually grinned and nodded. "Ya!" It wasn't her first word, but it always made them happy to hear her using real words. "Alright." They set the handkerchief down and tugged the cardboard box closer, rooting around until they pulled out a red bandanna.

"Angel." It was the first time they had directly spoken to anyone except Mo. "I'd like the record to show that I totally had it under control, but as a token of my appreciation..." They held it out to her with their free hand, other hand wrapped around Mo.

Angel walked over and rolled her eyes. "Sure you did. Can you help me with that? My arms are stiff from saving you, so I can't lift them." They gave her a look, quite sure that this was another one of her games. She returned it, all stubbornness and petulance. Fine, whatever. They rolled their eyes, hand leaving Mo so that they could tie it around her neck. She turned around and lifted her hair up to make it easier for them. Wow. "You're full of shit." They finished tying the bandanna and she glanced over their shoulder and winked at them. "You're welcome."

"Bye." They looked back down at Mo. "I think you're right about the orphanage. Too old or not, we'll make them take her back." She wrinkled her nose, bringing forth a chuckle from their lips. "But it's not just her we have to thank, is it? We've really got to thank Sheogorath, because he saved Papa and Tata. And Rae." Ugh, this was almost as unseemly to Cat as thanking Angel. Or more. Deciding was genuinely difficult.

They reached into the box and pulled out a necklace. "So congratulations, Sheo, you're promoted to Grunt once more. Don't make me regret it." Mo batted at the necklace, which led Cat to hold it out farther away from her until he came and took it. "Oh, Mo, what do you think, should we make him wait?" The plan had been to wait until the wound he had given them healed, though since it had been reopened it was going to take even longer, and that wasn't fair to him. "No!" They grinned, more for her talking than the answer. "You think so? Fug it. You're a Grunt again too, Mike. You also better not make me regret it." They held the marker out of her reach, but she still attempted to bat at it. "Sweetie, you can't play with that."

That was just about everything, right? Aside from the necklaces for Deacon and Addams. "Newbies. You get one of these too." They withdrew two more necklaces and offered them to the newest joiners, their attention momentarily leaving the baby. Mo crawled over to the box and climbed up on the edge, reaching in and grabbing another bandanna. "Momo, no." There were definitely things in there that weren't good for a one-year-old, though luckily she only took out a bandanna. "Momo," they repeated, moving to take the bandanna but she just shook it, pointing at Link as she did so.

"What, you wanna initiate him?" She laughed and shook the bandanna. Cat looked over at Link, squinting for a moment and then shrugging. "Sure. Why not." With one hand they pried the bandanna away from her, which seemed to upset her until they reminded her that she had her own pink bandanna. They beckoned Link over, and offered him the bandanna. Once he was close enough, they murmured, "we should talk soon." He showed promise, but they liked knowing for sure. Normally. This time it was just decided by the baby.

"Alright, I think that about wraps it up. You hungry, Mo? I'll get you some dinner." They hugged her to their chest and hopped off of the pool table.

OOC Summary + Announcements:
Welcome to Deacon/Marty and Addams/Crows!
There was an attempted joiner from the Insurrection, so Cat's on the lookout for spies now.
Northstar is no longer under Badlands rule, but things are still amicable between the groups. No more messing around with them or on their territory.
Molly's doing an Easter event here.
Cat was attacked twice, once in a mall outside of BL and one was a proper assassination attempt in the casino. There were also a few other violent evens, but they focused mainly on those two.
For helping fight off Cat's attacker in the mall, Angel is initiated.
For stopping the assassination attempt as well as saving Gavril and Rae, Sheogorath is promoted to Grunt.
Mike is also promoted to Grunt, though Cat's reasonings with Mike remain ever vague.
Newbies get necklaces.
Mo also decided to initiate Link, and Cat's just going along with it because why not, though they would like to speak with Link soon.
I really need to make a thread about the initiations, titles, and promotions bc I accidentally made a complicated mess but honestly I don't have the energy for it tonight.

The Badlands / Re: SUBLIME joining
« on: April 21, 2019, 01:57:35 AM »
Loneliness was something that Cat was well acquainted with. Better acquainted with than most people in their life, even. It wasn't until recent months that they felt as if they truly belonged, especially long term without feeling that it was false. Prior to this, they'd at best gotten momentary snapshots, things that they'd later dismiss as false. It wasn't real. Faux camaraderie, fools getting drunk with their false god.

The closest they'd gotten to belonging before this was sitting on the roof of the Constable's house, Susie next to them, their shoulders touching. Shitting on Mourningstar and Derick and the Constable and the fools getting plastered off crappy moonshine. Sitting there with her, talking with her, those were some of the only moments that made any sense to them from their teenage years. Too bad that friendship was ruined now.

Ah, there was Sheogorath, ever distinctive with the blazing red hair and blood-stained cane. But there was someone else, someone unfamiliar. Their body ached, but they ignored the pains and walked over, arriving as Sheo finished speaking. "It's definitely not." They drawled, able to guess what the other two questions were based on the man's history. "You can ignore it, if you want to."

To say that he was starting to piss them off forgot that they'd been pissed off from the first moment that he spoke. Now they were just getting really pissed off. They kept their temper under wraps, though, true emotions concealed and tucked away, barely even felt.

A sharp breath exits through their nose as they lace their fingers together in front of them. "Mad, snarling, savage dogs indeed. That's why you're here, isn't it? You want that yard gate closed before the half feral beasts come rushing out." He thought that he had a winning hand, that he held all the cards? The'd be happy to show him just how wrong that is.

"We've never heard of your kind. It ain't because you're lowkey. You're really not. But you've heard of us, and you know we're dangerous. You don't want that shit knocking at your door, so you're looking to make friends first. You don't want the dog to bite? Throw him a bone." Maybe it was just the way it was presented, like a... whatever the fuck they're called got a trial before a punishment, but if it was a Badlander that committed the crime, they were automatically guilty. There was also the dog metaphor, something that they appreciated only in that it was almost too easy to build off of.

"So it seems to me you're more worried about going blind than I am."

Northstar District / Re: DEEP IN THE ARCHIVES [open]
« on: April 21, 2019, 01:03:37 AM »
Resistance wasn't something they expected from the Northerners. Cooperation was keeping them alive, after all. The only blood that had been spilled on their soil was that of a former Badlander, brought over to be beaten and executed in semi-secrecy. No harm had come to any Northerner, though the Badlands had claimed a good portion of their food and supplies.

What alternative did they have? Fighting back was suicide. Cat won, and they barely had to lift a finger. But now two of them were approaching - Green and Chip - two men that looked like they were on a mission. They groaned inwardly, not particularly in the mood to deal with whatever grievance they had. "What?" Their recent lack of patience was pretty plain in their voice.

« on: April 20, 2019, 05:47:54 PM »
They had sent Creed over here to check up on things a few days ago, but Cat was someone that struggled with letting others do things for them. With some exceptions. Hard labor? Nah, fuck that. Or anything that required them to sweat, really. For the most part they were a hands-on person, though these days it felt like they had a hand in a million different things.

They wanted a nap.

Instead they had made the trek over to Northstar, planning on nothing more than a quick hi and bye. Would this go according to their plan? No, but things seldom ever did go according to their plans. The only one that determined that was Fate. She was the one that had urged them to take over Northstar in the first place; there had been a tactical advantage to it but it had been driven by an impulse they couldn't explain.

So... Fate.

//oh shit y'all ready for this takeover to be over

The Badlands / The Casino I THINK IF YOU FOUND HER [MEETING] THAT EVEN YOU WOULD KNOW
« on: April 20, 2019, 02:31:38 PM »
The last two meetings had been spectacles. One, returning bloody from a failed mission with the threat of war on their shoulders, the other confirming the war and branding their chest. This time they were not out in front of the casino, they were back on the pool table as usual. Once more they weren't alone, but this time it wasn't Creed.

Sitting on their lap, grinning and babbling happily, was Mo. "You ready to help me with the meeting?" In response she grabbed their finger and shook it. An actual, genuinely happy grin made its way onto Cat's face. Of course, they were well aware of all the people that were slowly filing in, but their undivided attention was on the one year old. With her free hand, Mo waved at some of the passerby, and just generally was the cutest damn thing you ever saw.

The Badlands / Re: THUGS -- open, attack
« on: April 20, 2019, 01:01:20 PM »
Believe it or not, ignoring Sheo hadn't been a personal slight against him. Considering their boyfriend was bleeding from the head, they thought it was pretty reasonable and understandable that their undivided attention would be on him, at least until they knew he was okay. Which he claimed to be, but they didn't believe that so easily. "You sure?"

Now, at long last they looked over at Sheogorath. He appeared perfectly fine, and though they didn't relish the idea of doing it, they would still do it genuinely nonetheless. "Thank you." Ah, shit, were the thugs that jumped their boyfriend actually Badlanders? Cat couldn't imagine that anyone would be that braindead. They nudged one of the bodies with their foot, turning him over. No necklace. "Not our men. You're fine." Even if it had been a Badlander, they'd have found themself unable to get angry at anyone but the attackers.

With Mo now in Gavril's arms, they crouched down next to the man Sheo had left alive. They grabbed the front of his shirt and yanked him up. "Oi. The fug is wrong with you? Are you fugging braindead?" Oh, they did indeed want to kill him quite a bit. No doubt about that. They couldn't wait to tear into him, but the rational part of their brain was winning out. Find out why this had happened. Find out if there were more rats that might come to hurt the people they cared about. Find out where said rats were. Dispose of the body.

"Worm." They repeated, reaching back and unclipping a set of handcuffs from their belt. "The prisoners, the slaves, the ones have done harm to the Badlands and haven't earned their place again yet." The necklace that Cat had checked for? Sheo wouldn't have that either. They set to putting the barely conscious man in the cuffs, sparing Gavril a glance as they did so. "This is what these are for, see?" Once the man was locked into the cuffs, Cat stood up and hauled him to his feet.

//again tw for injury

"Hey, are you o-" The person cut himself off, but it still grabbed Cat's attention. They most definitely were not okay, but they would insist otherwise until their dying breath. Quite literally. Admitting weakness wasn't in their vocabulary; hell they had concealed a stab wound for several weeks, telling no one except those that were the absolute closest to them (but even their boyfriend didn't find out until he had their shirt off). Now they showed off their wounds like medals of honor, daring anyone to call them weak for having them.

"I'm fine." The brand, more than anything else, was a symbol of strength and loyalty. Of bloodshed. To someone outside of the Badlands, it would seem like an ugly, violent mark, but for Cat it was something to be proud of. To show off. How foolish it was to do so, however.

It wasn't bared just to show off, however. The skin there was still incredibly tender, and any time they didn't need to have something touching it was all good with them. No one had said anything yet, so they figured it was fine. "No, it's really good special effects make up. Yes it's a brand." They rolled their eyes, but the blase attitude faded when Anton went into detail about the dangers of leaving it uncovered. Oh. Shit. "Yeah, alright." Still aloof, but under that was actual concern.

The Badlands / Re: A SUNSHINY DAY -- combat training
« on: April 19, 2019, 02:26:49 PM »
Hadn't they said something about being a black belt and missing this? Something. Something that would make them a bit of a hypocrite if they didn't show. Not that there wasn't a dozen and more things to call them hypocritical before, but there was no reason to add yet another. Besides, they wanted to see what Mike and Sheo had in store.

But was Cat actually going to participate in physical activity? Fuck no. They even brought a folding chair to sit on so they wouldn't have to stand. They set themself up off to the side, careful not to be in the way. "If anyone's got a problem with this, I'm sure I can get a doctor's note." Their voice was dripping with sarcasm; the two Worms didn't have enough authority over them to get them to hunt down Mord or Lucerne just so that they could tell them they were supposed to be in bed anyway.
