Northstar District / DEEP IN THE ARCHIVES [open]
« 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.

They weren't normally a nervous person. Anxiety was something that they felt very rarely, yet now their palms were sweating. They had flirted with people before, gone home with near strangers once or twice, but it was so... meaningless. Just a way to pass the time that would surely just be forgotten. Maybe some people would say the same about dates, but not Cat. This was significant, this had to go right.

From the get go, this had been a disaster. After that night in the garage, chatting with Eos and flirting with him until their car was done, they'd hung out a few times. Yes, with more flirting, but nothing serious. Nothing meaningful. Except in that every time they parted ways, Cat was unable to accept that they wouldn't converge again. So they always made sure it did, and eventually, they had made up their mind. They were going to ask him out properly, for a real date, and if he said no... Well, they supposed they'd just fuck off into oblivion then. (Thanks for toying with them, Orenda. Really appreciated.)

Before they even could get to the asking part, they had to figure out what the date would actually be. Not easy for someone that had almost no concept of what romance was or what an acceptable first date would be. But then they had noticed something at the mall... there were a lot of couples there. Wait a second, that sounded perfect. Kind of casual, gave them stuff to do (stuff that Cat personally loved doing) and places to eat. Not to mention if it went bad, they could just focus on the shopping.

Then it came time to actually ask him. Asking him to go to the mall had been easy enough (he said yes), but specifying that it was a date was a bit trickier. Cat was actually genuinely surprised when his answer didn't change, and for a moment the surprise and happiness slipped past their calm and collected facade, where it stayed for a good several seconds on their face before they were able to reign it in.

That whole time, from meeting him to asking him out, they had been doing their damndest not to read him. That meant next to no eye contact and spending a great deal of willpower suppressing powers that tended to just act on their own. The one time that they had failed was when they asked him out and felt the flare up of confliction and excitement. The latter was good, but they had no idea what to make of the former. To be honest? They were too scared to ask.

Not that they should. He still didn't know what they could do. I have to tell him. He needs to know. It wasn't right for them to try start a relationship with someone that didn't know that they could read minds and innately sense what he felt about them. Talking about it with anyone was hard, especially after the whole thing with Mourningstar.

Still, all things considered, the disaster had been... minimal. They had communicated that this wasn't just a trip to the mall but a romantic outing, and Eos had still agreed. It wasn't smooth, but it was real. There was, unfortunately, a new problem. Cat had arrived to pick him up in a Challenger, wanting to impress him with the nice car (though considering his job and who he worked for, he was well aware that they drove nice cars) but within minutes of heading out, he had fallen asleep.

Well. Shit. They had tried to make conversation, but maybe it had been boring or just wasn't enough. Maybe Eos had been up all night before or something (he did work nights, after all, but Cat had tried to schedule it so it wouldn't be hurting his sleep schedule), or maybe this was all some kind of trick. They focused on driving until they got to the mall.

Once they managed to find parking, they looked over at Eos, still asleep next to them. They took off their seat belt. "Hey. We're here." They almost felt bad for waking him up. He looked so peaceful and beautiful in his sleep. But what else could they do? Wait until he woke up on his own? Who knew how long that would take. Besides, wouldn't it be kind of creepy to just sit and watch him sleep until he eventually woke up on his own? They were overthinking this.

Loner Lands / THE SUN WILL RISE [PRIVATE BL HOSPITAL RAID]
« on: April 14, 2019, 05:50:35 PM »

Were they feeling up to doing this? No, not really. Were they going to do it anyway? Of course.

Cat had sent out a few scouts to locate a place that they might raid for supplies, and the scouts had hit a goldmine. It was a hospital made largely of concrete, seven stories tall and abandoned for years. One poor scout had an allergic reaction to all the dust inside. Eh, good thing they might be able to find masks - Cat just hoped those were clean and well preserved. Well, they hoped everything was going to be clean and well-preserved. The Badlands desperately needed medical supplies.

"Fan out in pairs. It's empty, but be careful in case the scouts missed something. If it seems moldy or like it's expired, leave it. Otherwise, we need just about everything." People started spreading out, and for Cat's part, they headed in with Creed. It always seemed to be her, but she was one of the few people that didn't try what little patience they had left these days. A bit to their surprise, however, someone else followed them in. Mike's kid, Will. Well, this would be... interesting.

The Badlands / The Casino CAUSE PAIN [MEETING + BRANDING] I CAN TAKE IT EASILY
« on: April 13, 2019, 07:12:28 PM »

//randomly gonna change fancies in this thread? you betcha
//also tws for violence, injuries, self mutilation, etc in this thread

They figure they probably could have waited another week before doing this, but no, the time was right now. With all the invites and whatnot pouring in, it was better to just get this thing moving. "Meeting time." This one was different, however, than previous meetings. Instead of going into the casino, they stood on the steps. It was pretty evident that they were planning something, not just from that but from doing this on the steps, the cardboard box tucked off to the side, but the firepit that was blazing behind them. Apparently Russel hadn't taken it with him when he left, and now there was a poker resting in the flames, two more leaning against the pit. Off to the side was a chair, barely staying balanced on the step. Hopefully they wouldn't need it, they didn't trust it not to tip over.

"Yes. We're doing it here. I've got plans." When didn't they have plans? They adjusted their cuffs; thanks to their plans they hadn't worn a shirt today, just zipped up their jacket. It felt weird, truthfully, but whatever. They were going to subject themself to much worse than this.

The Badlands / MY DEATH WILL NEVER SURVIVE [MEETING]
« on: April 06, 2019, 02:21:23 AM »

//trigger warnings for violence, injuries, blood, etc

They'd barely taken a breath between getting their new injuries sewn up and bandages swathed around them and marching over to the casino. They'd grabbed their pretty much ruined jacket (rest in peace old friend), given Gavril a quick kiss and then headed towards the casino, ordering anyone that happened to be around to spread the word that there was going to be a meeting.

All Cat wanted right now was to lay down and sleep. Forget being fucking stabbed, this was painful. The old wound from Mike that they'd tried so hard to hide had been re-opened, and that was only the beginning. Their shoulder had been dislocated (though it was back in place now), their eye was slowly turning black, their arm had taken a blow meant for Creed, someone had delivered a pretty solid kick to their knee and while not the most serious injury they had, it caused them to walk with a bit of a limp. And, of course, there was the small gash on the back of their head. Truth be told, that one messed them up the most, if for nothing else their history of taking blows there. It wasn't a happy one by any means; hell it had even influenced the rules of the Badlands.

They had hidden the stab wound. Part of it had been to hide all weakness that one might take advantage of, part of it was so that no one would ask what would happen and they wouldn't get any questions about the person that had stabbed them. But in this case, it was a question they'd answer perhaps even before it was asked. And they'd had a bit of an epiphany; these wounds didn't make them weak for having them. Yes, someone might still try to take advantage, but they'd cross that bridge if and when it came up. To everyone else, however? They'd taken all of this damage and still there they stood. That took strength.

(At least that's how Cat wanted to think about it.)

So they made no attempts to hide it, they limped towards the casino, (they tried to downplay that, if just because that more than anything else felt like a telegraph of weakness), their torn, blood-drenched jacket slung over their shoulder. They hadn't bothered putting a shirt back on, which they slightly regretted as it was a bit of a chilly spring day, but it was too late to change their mind.

Since they had gotten back and pretty much immediately went to see Mordecai and Lucerne for treatment, and then headed to the casino. There was no time to do the small amount of prep that they normally did, so they had someone go get Molly and have her bring their cardboard box of goodies. In the meantime, Cat sprawled out on their usual billiard table; forget that casually leaning against or sitting on it. They just wanted to fucking sleep. They were exhausted and everything hurt. Nothing sounded better than curling up with their boyfriend and actually letting their body heal for once, but no, they had things to attend to first. A frustrated half sigh/half groan escaped their lips.

The Badlands / The Casino we're born to die so i'm gonna fight for how i wanna live [ANNOUNCEMENT]
« on: April 03, 2019, 04:33:44 PM »

Maybe if they hadn't mentioned Arrow to Creed, she wouldn't have gotten this idea. Or maybe it just would have happened later on rather than now. That didn't really matter. What mattered was that she'd told them out of courtesy what she was going to do, and then they had insisted that she not go alone. And who better to provide backup than a still-recovering person with a family to get home to? Well. It's not like either of them were likely to accept any other alternative.

"Got a quick announcement to make. Everyone meet outside the casino." They weren't gonna bother gathering everyone within the building, considering the two were going to leave right after the announcement. Cat stood at the top of the steps, Creed behind them. "Alright, gonna make this quick. Creed and I are going on a little mission. It should only take a few days, but for those few days I'm leaving Gavril and Mordecai in charge. Just keep things rolling, don't do anything I wouldn't. We'll be back soon." Mentioning that it would probably be dangerous wasn't necessary, right?

//crappy little thing but ye! I'll still be around so this is purely ic and I'll be posting in stuff retro to this, but if you wanna do a thread or two where Cat isn't around that's chill

//tw for gunviolence, blood, murder

Since leaving Mourningstar, they'd hardly settled down in any one place for more than a couple weeks. They tended to avoid people, as people tended to not want them around. Any time they encountered a group, they usually chased them out. It didn't matter if Cat could help them, another mouth to feed was another mouth to feed, and they might as well have "bad news" written on their forehead. People didn't want them around, fine. People suck anyway.

To some, it might seem like a pointless existence and... yeah, there were times when Catalyst felt the same way. But they knew that Fate had more in store for them, they just needed to keep going. So they did, continuing on and on. Their steps had led them to a largely abandoned suburb; every block or so they glimpsed some movement, but by the time someone approached them, they were deep into the neighborhood.

They hadn't noticed the gun until he pulled it out and aimed it at them, demanding they surrender their belongings. After a moment, they concluded that they'd rather part ways with their stuff than their life, so they tossed their backpack onto the ground between themself and the gunman. "Can I go?" They asked. Already the wheels in their head were turning; how to get their stuff back and take out this son of a bitch.

Before they got the chance to enact anything, before they could move in any direction, they got their answer to their question. No, apparently they could not go. He wanted them dead. The first bullet tore through their left arm, the second one whizzed by their head. They cried out, free hand clutching their arm. Another person had come out of one of the houses, and before the robber could get another round off, blood and brains sprayed out. The approaching man had shot him. Some part of Cat thought that they were next, but instead he just put the gun back in its holster, walking over slowly to them, palms out. "You okay there?"

"The fug does it look like?" They hissed, unable to keep the grimace off of their face despite all their training to keep it blank. The man snorted and made a face, then started walking towards them. He bent down and picked up the backpack, swinging it over his shoulder with ease. Cat bristled, but something in his face calmed them.

He looked back at them and tilted his head back towards the house he had just come from. "Come on. I'll take care of that and then you can be on your way." They hesitated, and he waved them forward. "If I was gonna hurt you I'da done it by now. And I'm as qualified to take care of that as anyone else you'll find for miles." They hesitated once more, but only for a moment. Then they started following him to the house. "I'm Rico, by the way."

It had been so long since anyone had shown them any kindness, they were honestly a bit taken aback by it. "Catalyst." He glanced over his shoulder at them. "My name is Catalyst. You can call me Cat if you want."

Rico opened the door to the house. "Okay then, Cat. My clinic is in there." He headed inside and pointed to a room off to the right of the entryway. "Have a seat. You're gonna need to take off your jacket and your shirt so I can see the wound."

"Clinic." Cat repeated. They could tell he was a few years older, but it didn't seem as if he was that much older. Not enough to be a proper doctor. They walked in and sat down on some sort of bed-chair thing that seemed to be fixed to the floor. They paused at the request, not too thrilled by the idea.

He nodded, slinging their backpack down onto a chair in the corner of the room. "I told you I was the most qualified person you'd find. My dad was a doctor before the blackout, taught me everything he knew." He looked over at them and raised an eyebrow. "You shy?"

They scowled at him and shrugged off their jacket. "No." The shirt was more painful to remove, and Rico offered to cut it off. Even though the blood had pretty much ruined it anyway, they refused. The man just shrugged, waiting until it was off before coming over and trying to gently wipe away some of the blood. "How much is this kindness going to cost me?" They asked, eyeing him suspiciously.

Rico shook his head. "Nothing. That was my partner that shot you." Cat stiffened, silently demanding an explanation. He sighed. "Ron's always been a wild card. I kept him around because he's good at what he does, but he's been pushing it more and more. I'm doing this because I want to help people, he's - was - doing this because it keeps him alive." He grimaced. "I want to help people, not hurt them. I guess this time I had to make an exception."

They released a breath they didn't know they had been holding. "You killed him to save me."

He paused, fingers lightly brushing over their arm. He nodded. "To be honest, it was bound to happen eventually. But it wasn't right for him to rob you at gunpoint and then shoot you anyway." He inhaled sharply through his nose, then it was back to work.

"As opposed to shooting me and then taking my stuff or just taking my stuff at all?"

Cat was sort of surprised when he laughed; it was a pleasant sound that lit up his dark eyes. It was honest and amused, not the harsh, mocking sound they were used to. "It's all fucked up, but that just rubbed me the wrong way, alright?" He finished cleaning the wound and started dabbing some sort of ointment into it. Cat hissed in pain.

Rico kept working, and for a minute or so they stayed silent. "What made you think that I was better than him?" They knew the answer, of course. They weren't supposed to die here. But they couldn't help but want to know the reasons of the people that kept them alive, the ways they told themselves they had free will.

They met his gaze when his eyes slid over to theirs. "What?"

They shrugged, but didn't break the eye contact. "He was a menace. But I am too. Look at me." They gestured to themself with their free hand, all the scars that littered their torso. "I didn't get these by being a nice person."

Rico worked his jaw and then finally said, "well I didn't get this far by turning away people that need help." They didn't know how that worked; in this world dog ate dog and any kindness was sure to be taken advantage of. Or come at a steep price. "You're lucky that he was such a bad shot."

"And that you're such a good one?"

A wry smile worked its way over Rico's lips. "Just because I try to help people, doesn't mean I can't know how to protect myself." He put a bandage around Cat's arm, fixing it tightly over the wound.

They stared at him, and he gazed back. His eyes were deep and dark and weirdly welcoming. They felt like they could fall into them. "You weren't protecting yourself though. You were protecting me."

He was done, but he didn't step away. They could feel the heat radiating off of him. "So I was." Cat lifted their chin and tilted their head back slightly, but still kept their gaze locked on the doctor. He cleared his throat and stepped away. "You can spend the night, if you want, but that ain't free."

They raised an eyebrow. "What's that going to cost me?"

Rico shrugged and clapped bloody hands together. "I guess that depends on what you've got to trade."



They were pretty sure that Rico didn't want that much from them. He'd taken the ruined jacket from Cat, saying that he would try to clean and fix it so it could be used again. That was fine by Cat; at least he hadn't asked for one of their good jackets - truth be told, they were mainly just hauling around clothes and blades. Giving up those would be a much harder sell, if he could even be that convincing. But no, he just wanted something that they would be parting with anyway. Yeah. They were pretty sure he wanted them to stay.

But the next morning, Rico approached them and leaned against the table they were eating at. His arms were crossed and his eyes were guarded. "You can't stay." Oof. That stung a little, but they kept their expression blank.

"Wasn't planning on it." They replied, not looking at him immediately. They paused in their breakfast and finally looked up at him. "Why do you want me gone? Is it because -"

"It's because of a lot of things." He said, cutting them off. "You can finish eating, and I'll check your wound before you go, but then you need to leave." They looked back down at their food, lower lip sticking out as they worked their jaw back and forth.

After a long minute of Cat not responding, Rico sighed and walked away. They took another bite, but just wanted to gag. They stood up and grabbed their backpack, heading out without telling him that they were leaving. They didn't need him.

OOC Discussion / big bad boss' big bad opinions
« on: March 27, 2019, 04:34:21 PM »
Hey guys so for some reason last night at almost 12 am I decided to write up Cat's opinions on various characters from BL and their backstory. I got 14 done by 2 am but wanted to do some more so... here we are lads. If you think I missed someone, yeet them in BUT BEAR IN MIND I'm only doing characters that Cat has interacted with in a meaningful way at least two times. Also this. isn't exactly a heartchart bc my lazy ass still hasn't gotten new hearts together after the inadequate ones last time. Also most of these are short and crappy but it be like that sometimes. Also, they're all 100% ic opinions of Cat's.

TW some opinions may reference death or violence.

Spoiler: show
Addy
"I admire his dedication and his initiative. Sometimes he's fun to talk to, but he's got his... moments."
Cat still doesn't know Addy that well, but for the most part they like and appreciate him. They don't trust him as much as some of the others that they've personally gone through things with, but he's on his way to becoming fairly well liked and trusted by them.

Angel
"She's okay, I guess. It's pretty obvious that she's into me, but she's not going to get anywhere."
They don't especially like or dislike her. They've been friendly towards her since she hasn't really done anything to deserve otherwise, but they're thinking they should probably leave a good amount of distance between them, considering she has feelings for them and they've got a boyfriend.

The Constable
"Rest in peace, I guess. We didn't always get along but he was an okayish guy. For what he was."
Cat respected him, and to an extent he respected them, though neither of them liked the other very much. The Constable didn't like Cat because of the cult and their proximity to Susie, and they didn't like him because of how he ran his town.

Creed
"I guess if you were going to make me pick one person in the Badlands that I consider my friend, it would probably be Creed. She's chill and I feel like we've got each other's backs, and she's proven that I can trust her."
They're still a little reluctant to call her their friend thanks to their track record, but they do cautiously think of her as one. She's seen them in ways no one else in the Badlands has, from scheming to bleeding out, and they figure if they don't trust her, they're fucked. They care about her, and hope things with her continue on the current trajectory.

Derick
"I promised myself if I ever see him again I'll kill him. I hope I never do, but I'm still fully committed."
Derick fucked up their life in just about every way he could, something that, after fully realizing and coming to terms with, Cat will not ever forgive him for. There's part of them that already grieves for him, however, as he's the only father they've ever really had.

Gabriel
"Gabe... He's a good kid. He belongs somewhere nice, I don't know why he sticks around here."
On the one hand, they saw a great deal of potential in Gabe that he pretty much just threw out. On the other hand, they're sort of proud of him. They see themself in him in a weird way, if they had gone down a different path. If they'd been able to resist Derick's influence and stay true to themself, rather than getting warped and twisted. They don't really see him as a typical Badlander, but they'll be damned if they let anything bad happen to him.

Gavril
"Oh, uh... Gav. Yeah he's um..."
They struggle to put it into words how much Gavril means to them. He's the first person they've developed feelings with where things actually worked out, and actually expressing that he's their boyfriend is hard because boyfriend feels inadequate. He's without a doubt one of the most important things/people in their life and they are absolutely terrified of losing him. Still, they've got some trust issues they're trying to work through and even though they're in denial that it's even a possibility, some part of them is scared that he's using him or will betray them. Right now though? They're falling for him.

Gerald
"Why are we talking about him? He's an arsehole. If I ever get the chance to tell him that, I will."
They have no love for Gerald, they never have and they never will. He was an ass, and they're glad to be rid of him.

Honey
"She... honestly didn't deserve what we put her through. She was a bit of an idiot, but she was a nice enough idiot."
Honey isn't someone that they were ever especially close to, but they do regret some of the things that she went through in Mourningstar.

Jeremy
"He was a bastard. I'm glad he's dead."
They hated him. Pure and simple they hated him, and they're quite happy that they don't ever have to see him again.

Louie
"God... If there's anyone in Mourningstar that I really regret being there, it's him. He didn't even have anything bad happen to him, he just... I dunno. I think it's because that if it wasn't for Mourningstar, he wouldn't have been another follower. He would have been my brother."
Catalyst is perhaps the saddest of all about Louie, largely because of what could have been if things had been different. They've obviously never had a brotherly bond with anyone else, but just when they were getting close, the dynamic changed in a way that Cat would come to absolutely hate. Of all the cultists, he's the one they wish they could have a fresh start with.

Mo
"She's an angel, isn't she? Yeah I never wanted kids but I have to admit that I'm happy she's part of my family now."
Again, they never wanted to be a parent. It was something they had every intention of actively avoiding, but when it came down to leaving her to die, how could they even consider the latter? They haven't regretted that for one second, even if they're now constantly paranoid that something will happen to her and unable to sleep because of it. They absolutely adore her and would do anything for her already.

Molly
"I think it's pretty obvious to everyone that I care about my mother a great deal, and that despite everything that's happened, we're pretty close. Quite frankly, she's amazing and I don't deserve to have someone like her in my life."
She's the one person that has never done anything to hurt or betray them, and though their relationship is in a rocky place right now, Cat would still do anything for her. As of now she's the only person that they will freely say "I love you" to, but that won't be the case for long. They trust her more than anyone else, though they don't see her as any sort of confidant. They're super protective of her, and want to keep her safe and well above all else.

Mordecai
"Mord's solid. He's a good doctor, a good dude, pretty sure he can fug someone up if he wants to, too, so that's alright."
They like him pretty decently; they mainly just trust him to do his job and if the situation calls on it, keep an eye on Molly, but they've got little to no reason to view him in any sort of negative light.

Mike
"He used to be something of a right hand to me, and now I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. Anyone can see that."
Yeah, Mike used to be someone they trusted a great deal but has since fallen... just about as low as you can get in their eyes. It's gonna be hard to change that, though part of them hopes he'll be able to. Another part is looking for that last reason to put a bullet in his head, but you know. It's all really complicated and messy, but they feel incredibly betrayed by his actions.

Paige
"She's annoying, and she does it on purpose which is even more annoying."
She is pretty successful at irritating the shit out of them, but if she were to suddenly stop they'd weirdly miss having her around.

Rico
"I knew him for three days a year and a half ago. He saved my life but I'll be just fine if our paths don't ever cross again."
They don't really have anything against Rico, but they'd still really rather not see him again.

Sheogorath
"Obviously I'm no fan of his, and I don't think I ever will be. He had his chance and he blew it spectacularly, but I'm pretty much over what happened."
They still think about what happened with him sometimes, but there isn't really any remorse or guilt or... anything. They aren't happy or sad, they're just over it. It's something that happened.

Susanna
"If I never see that crusty shrew again it'll be too soon."
Anyone stepping in to be like a mother to them is going to have a hard time filling Molly's shoes, but Susanna didn't rise up to the challenge whatsoever. She focused on Louie and the twins, Cat be damned. It was always abundantly clear that she only took them in because Derick wanted to, even to young Cat.

Susie
"Do I have to talk about her?"
Their relationship with Susie was and is incredibly complicated. Starting out as friends, she was the single true friend they had, she was their rock, she kept them sane and over time they developed a small crush on her.  However, after certain events they avoided her, never actually resolving things or speaking to her. They cared enough to say good bye to her when they left Mourningstar, but they shot down the idea that she might go with them. When she found them in the Badlands they tried to be sort of nice, though that ended up going out the door after a while. And that's where they left that, with Cat having thrown kerosene on the bridge and setting it ablaze.

Tydeus
"Pfft. I don't have a whole lot to say about him, but there's a whole lot I'd love to say to him. That's hardly new, though."
Their feelings towards Tyd are complicated and messy and no one understands them, least of all Cat. They sort of like him and being around him, but he also pisses them the fuck off quite a lot and they'd love nothing more than the chance to really tell him that one last time. And that's not even touching on the usurper/prisoner/slave/freer thing.

The Badlands / The Casino EUPHORIC [MEETING]
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:48:20 PM »

//tw for mentions of injuries/violence

The last meeting, they'd walked in with a fresh injury that no one could see. This time they entered the Casino (after doing their usual calls for attention first) sporting a bandage covering their cheek. Jeremy's last act of defiance had left a pretty good mark, and Cat had taken their sweet ass time seeing to it. The cut was covered now, though, and healing surprisingly well. It wasn't the only thing healing; they hopped up onto the billiard table a bit easier than last time, though they still had a subtle stiffness. The cardboard box was also positioned on the table, a small concession that they weren't able-bodied again yet. As usual, Cat waited for people to gather before jumping into things.

The Badlands / domestic life was never quite my style [open]
« on: March 21, 2019, 04:15:07 PM »

How foolish it had been to assume they'd never become a parent. How presumptuous to think that it would never happen, just because they didn't want the responsibility or think they'd be good at it. They didn't know what they'd do with a kid, and generally thought that it'd be best if they just remained single and childless for their whole life. Okay, maybe not totally single, they were really only closed off to the idea of marriage and children. Having someone to care about and care about them, that sounded nice. It had always sounded nice, and somehow they had found such a person.

Maybe they weren't entirely compatible with Gavril. Cat was pretty dismissive of that thought, though, because who was perfectly compatible with their partner? Though, with the case of Cat and Gav, there was a pretty big difference. They didn't want kids. He did. And, after coming across a newly orphaned baby, it was him that won out. How could they say no, though? There was no one else to care for her, and if they left her there, she'd die.

But that meant the two of them now had a one year old with absolutely no planning or preparation. Cat had her things moved into the spare bedroom of their house, a crib and mobile and toys and a small supply of diapers, and that certainly helped, but there was one thing they were going to have to come up with a replacement for. Her name.

So the two of them had spent some time talking it over. Cat wasn't very creative when it came to names, so their big idea had been to name her after their mother, though that came with the obvious problem of the two sharing the same name and getting confused. Fortunately, Gav had come up with a whole list of nicknames, and though he'd probably use all of them at various points, they had settled on one main one. He'd also picked out her middle name, and though he didn't say why he liked it, Cat had a feeling it meant something to him just as Molly meant something to Cat. They were pretty sure it was Romanian, so maybe that's where the story ended. Maybe not. And finally, Gav's last name. Cat hadn't used theirs in years, and that wouldn't be changing any time soon, so that seemed natural, the easiest part of the entire thing.

They had told Molly their proposed name first, after all they were hoping to name their newly adopted baby after her. She had loved the name, but for one thing. She wanted Cat to honor their father the same way they were honoring her, and after some discussion, they relented.

They were standing outside of their house, deciding to do it here instead of the casino for... reasons that hadn't been obvious to Cat until Molly explained why. Gav was holding her, laughing as she pulled the loosely tied pink bandanna from around her neck, clenching it tightly in her fist. Cat was standing next to them, smiling softly before remembering they were here for a reason. "Hey! We're formally introducing the newest member of the Badlands, so c'mon over."

Cat didn't wait long, just giving a few people time to come over. "This is Molly Valentina Darrow-Lupei. We're calling her Mo for short."

Northstar District / The Graveyard AND EVERY DEMON WANTS HIS POUND OF FLESH [open, torture]
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:20:09 AM »

//trigger warnings for violence (mentioned in the past and carried out in the present) and most likely death too. Blood and gore and injuries as well. Nothing about this will be pretty.

"Bet you thought I'd forgotten about you, didn't you?" The words are hissed into the ear of Jeremy, a longterm Worm of the Badlands. He had a long history with Catalyst, going back to when they themself were a Worm during Tydeus' reign, and Jeremy had been tasked with guarding them. For months, they'd let him off the hook, only letting him know that it was a temporary release. They would come for them, on their own time, and when they did, it wouldn't be pretty. Then Jeremy had gotten the bright idea to, instead of keeping a low profile, try to act like a big bad Grunt. Cat had said something to the effect of go out and hurt some folks, so that's what he did. Now, if he'd picked just about any other human on the planet, he might have gotten away with it. He wouldn't have redeemed himself, but he wouldn't be the guy cleaning up the shit of the guys that cleaned up the shit.

You see, he had chosen Molly Darrow to capture and beat. Was Cat biased, perhaps even hypocritical in their reaction to Jeremy hurting her? Yes. Absolutely. Without a doubt. Did they care? No, the man had harmed their mother, and that wouldn't stand. So he had been demoted to Worm and arrested immediately by Mike and Lake while Catalyst had tended to their mother. They'd let him sit in the shackles he had once clapped them in for a while, but then it was time to begin their revenge.

First they'd given him poisoned food that made him vomit. Letting him trust them, only to betray it. They'd given him unpoisoned food after, and he'd eaten that too after Catalyst pointed out the day would go better for him with food in his stomach. Okay, perhaps it had been a bit of a power game, but when Cat was his prisoner, he'd played plenty of his own. One of which actually inspired the next phase of his punishment: the manual labor. But it wasn't simply gathering materials, oh no, he had to collect wood for a fire on a leash. The memories of having to collect scrap metal at the end of a leash had aged well, but not long enough for them to not still be incredibly bitter.

Luckily for Jeremy but unluckily for Cat, Molly had found them and she hadn't approved one bit. Mike hadn't been able to get her away before the damage was done. The punishment was cut short, and their plans for the next phase curtailed. Their relationship with Molly was damaged enough as it was from them hiding how awful they were, they didn't want her witnessing their brutality (that's why they'd had Mike distracting her, fat lot of good it did them).

They had managed to make things... semi-okay with her, though now she was pissed off once more because they had taken over Northstar. And you know what? Fuck it. She was giving them the cold shoulder, staying away from their occupied little group, so it was finally time to give that bastard the beat-down that he deserved. Not in the Badlands, though they would have preferred it be there just for the convenience. They'd do it in Northstar, where there'd be no one to stop them.

So they'd gotten together a little party of people, then headed out. Molly knew that they were going to Northstar, though she didn't know their true plans there. Once they arrived they had Jeremy build a bonfire on the beach, and then the real fun began. Or it would have, had Jeremy not gotten the bright idea to attack Catalyst.

His wrists were chained in iron manacles, and holding his wrists together, he'd slammed them down the side of Cat's face, leaving a bloody trail down their cheek. They staggered back, hand flying to their face. (Wow. He just did that.) A few Badlanders stepped forward, ready to restrain or subdue Jeremy, but their other hand went up, a signal to stop. "You'll get your turn. But first he's mine." They growled.

He turned white as a sheet. "Cat, please, I'm sorry, don't do this."

They ignored his pleas, removing their jacket and tossing it aside, then taking out the baton they'd brought along for the purpose. "Recognize this?" They asked, and though he was shaking, he managed a clear nod. It was the very same weapon he had used to break their mother's arm. "Great." They brought the baton down in an arc and slammed it into his knees. Jeremy fell with a screech of pain, and though Cat stayed on his feet and kept their lips sealed, they were hurting too. Their abdomen, where they'd been stabbed a few days prior, had not enjoyed that whatsoever, and if they weren't careful, their stitches might come lose. Okay, that might change things.

Not too much, though. They were doing this. Cat brought the baton down on Jeremy's arm, again and again and again. The man was screaming in pain, holding an arm that no longer looked right to his chest. They straightened, putting an already bloody hand to their injury, checking to make sure they were still fine. A sign of weakness in front of a crowd of Badlanders that didn't know what had happened to them, a crack in their facade. They removed their hand and wiped their arm over their cheek, smearing blood over it and accentuating the stinging pain there.

Cat tossed the baton aside, where it stuck up out of the sand. They took a few deep breaths as they looked down at the now sobbing man. Then they gave him a swift kick to the ribs. "Alright. I'm done." They said, taking a few steps backwards, clawing at the adrenaline in hopes it would numb down the pain in their abdomen and face. "Have at him." For a brief moment, stillness. Then the seal was broken by Gavril, who charged in with a vengeance. Heh. Cat retreated a bit more, content to watch the carnage unfold.

In some ways, the operation was a covert one. After all, they didn't want their mother to know what they were up to. Molly wouldn't approve, and they weren't interested in getting in a fight with her about it. However, they did want a sizable group of people for... a couple of reasons. One, so that when Cat was finished, there'd be a nice little mob to finish Jeremy off. Two, to make any problems that Jeremy or Mike (for they had decided they didn't want to let him out of their sight) may cause solved easily.

They left at night; Molly knew that they were going to Northstar, however she didn't know that they had decided to bring Jeremy along for the ride.

The Badlands / The Casino BLOODY SUNDAY [MEETING]

//tw for injuries and violence

Since their last full on meeting, two significant things had happened. One, they had taken over Northstar, and two, they had been stabbed. It wasn't too bad, their assailant hadn't been nearly at his most capable, barely able to hold the weapon he attacked them with, but still, getting stabbed was never fun. As much as they didn't want to let up, they knew they should at least take it easy and rest. But, being that they were already a lazy son-of-a-bitch (because "son" was a word that applied to them and "bitch" was a word that applied to Molly), they already slacked off enough.

"Meeting time." They called, marching through the city and making their way into the casino. To anyone but the very few people aware of what had happened, it would be hard to tell they were hurt. They moved in pretty much the same way they always had, carrying on through the pain. There was a clue, though, perhaps subtle enough that many would miss it, though those that paid attention would perhaps wonder why the box that contained the bandannas and necklaces was sitting on top of the billiard table instead of below it. Normally it was stowed out of the way until the end of the meeting, but no, this time Cat hadn't wanted to bend down, nor get someone else to do that for them.

Northstar District / The Graveyard YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN [TAKEOVER]

//tw for threats of violence/death and mentions of death

It had started out as a simple supply run and check-in with their neighbors. But then Catalyst had found two, maybe three people there. They asked a purple-haired man who the leader was, and he said that there was no leader, that they just went about their business peacefully. How peculiar. Now, it wasn't all that long ago that the Badlands had lacked a leader, and what had they told the Badlands when they took over? That if they didn't, someone worse would come along and overrun them? Something like that. Well, wasn't it funny that now they were going to do the very thing they had warned their people about?

Some might call the decision impulsive, but many of their decisions were. When it came to things like this, they could feel Fate's hands guiding them, and they had learned long ago not to resist. They went wherever She wanted them to go, did whatever She bid, and now would be no different. They reckoned they could take this place just with the two Badlanders that had accompanied them, hell even on their own, but what fun would that be?

Cat completed their business there, giving no indication to their plans. They headed back to the Badlands, rallied their troops, and now led them back to Northstar. They told their people not to rough anyone up too badly, nor to destroy too much, but this was still a raid, still a hostile takeover. "I want everyone rounded up and brought to the... where the fug is the main hub?" They glanced at some of the surrounding Badlanders, each of whom shrugged. No wonder they were so disorganized, apparently there was no where to organize. "Eh, let's just do it in the graveyard." So the Northerners would be able to see where they'd end up if they resisted.

There weren't very many people to round up, though there were quite a lot of places to check for hiders. Cat waited in the graveyard, leaning against a crumbling headstone that was nearly as tall as them. The first Northerner that was brought was that purple haired man from before. He glared daggers at Cat, spat curses at them, but they ignored him. It wasn't until they heard that it was all clear that they spoke addressed the crowd of Badlanders and Northerners.

"I don't think I need to explain what's happening here. This is a raid, yeah? But a bit more than that, see, because the ratio of supplies to people are insane. There's hardly anyone here, but you're all really well-stocked. Now, the Badlands has been growing quite a bit. It's getting hard to feed everyone there, and it doesn't seem all that fair that there should be this much food here for so few mouths, does it?" They tsked and shook their head.

"So here's how it's gonna go down: we're gonna take what we need. You'll carry on like normal, and if you're good we might just build this place up a little. Or leave you be. Depends on my mood, I guess." Whatever bends in the path that She had planned, She didn't want them to know about it. That was fine, they could follow along and take life as it came. "But," their tone darkened significantly here, their pale blue eyes taking on a dangerous glint, "you resist, you make problems for me, I'll kill everyone here. Sound good?" And then they were right back to borderline jovial; they didn't care if they killed everyone in Northstar, it made no fugging difference to them whether these people lived or died.

"Alright. That's it, y'all get on with it." They waved a hand dismissively. The Northerners could protest or stand there or go back home to protect their belongings, they couldn't care less. The Badlanders would get food, confiscate weapons, and take whatever supplies were needed back home.

//So yeah! The Badlands is temporarily taking over Northstar; Cat's effectively the leader though over time the authority will shift over to Sango's character Mason, who will be the one that cuts ties with the Badlands, ends the occupation and takes over. For now there are going to be Badlanders running around and taking whatever they want, but the Northerners are just supposed to carry on even with the occupation.
//also this is a fucking mess I'm sorry
