The Badlands / Re: POUR ME [open, drunk]

No, their choices more often then not weren't good. They did whatever would cause the most damage, they did it deliberately, and they didn't really care who it hurt. Usually the worst of the effects fell on others though, so Cat taking the brunt of their own bullshit was not something they were used to.

In truth, they weren't someone that found vices intriguing. They didn't drink or smoke or gamble, or anything else, and some part of them judged the people that did, even if they found the inebriated actions of others amusing. The first time they'd tried alcohol, it had been mostly to fit in with the closest approximation to peers they had; they didn't like it but it hadn't been bad enough to get them to swear off drinking. The next experience hadn't been so good, and on every occasion they tried it after, they thought that maybe it wouldn't be as bad as the last time and promptly swore off it again.

Finally, Gabriel gave up, but a new challenger had entered the ring. Fugging hell. The disdain was plenty evident on their face; were they the Boss or some dumbarse that needed babysitting? They could take care of themself, they'd shown that every step of the way and yet, here everyone was the second their guard slipped a little. Bastards. This was why they couldn't let their guard down, couldn't let anyone see any weakness or get close. They were testing them, trying to find the cracks in their armor so they could rip it away.

Cat snatched the canteen of water from Michael, the one concession they were willing to make here. They'd feel better if they hydrated. "I'd already stopped drinking, not that you'd know because you just showed up and assumed you knew what the fug was going on." They took a small sip from the canteen, not really trusting that it wouldn't be more alcohol. Eh, if it tasted weird they could just spit it out and clock Michael with it (not really a sober thought to have, but they weren't all that sober). Luckily it was actually water, and they took a deep swig. "At least I know when to stop." They muttered, glaring at Michael.

Then he did what was probably the worst thing he could have done. He reached out and touched their shoulder. Now, at the best of times they disliked people touching them without permission, and though Gavril had just done the same, he was Gavril, the rules didn't apply to him the same way they did to everyone else. Besides, the hug had just been about being close to them, being affectionate. Michael tugging at their shoulder, trying to steer them out of the casino to God-knows-where. He was trying to control them, trying to physically control them. Catalyst wrenched away from him, a look of fury twisting across their features. "Don't fugging touch me." They snarled, putting even more distance between themself and the Officer.

They pulled their jacket tighter around them as they kept moving, heading for the exit. "I'm going for a walk." Their tone invited no one to join them, sounding almost like a threat if anyone did.

//uhh reminder that all of this is ic and Cat's not quite in their right mind rn, they're very paranoid and their perception is a tad bit off.

A groan rumbled in Cat's throat as they pulled away from Gavril and got to their feet. "No." No, they weren't gonna go home or listen or any of that. Brash as it may be, they were too stubborn to give in. "I do have it under control, Gabriel, I'm not going to do anything stupid. That includes going home." They moved back, away from everyone else, subtly shaking their head. "You don't know either, kid."

They shut their eyes and rubbed their face, trying to clear their head a bit. It didn't help much, but Hope's closing comment brought a flicker of them back to the surface. Cat lowered their hands and squinted at her. "You know what nail polish remover tastes like?"

//this is terrible but I don't have a whole lot of time for posting so uhh

And then someone else was there. Hope. They mentally ran through two different paths, one where they waited, let Gabe explain, and one where they intervened. They could always corner him later and demand answers, but they couldn't take back Hope knowing of Gabe's change of heart. They squeezed his shoulder. "No one. Just some target practice." Almost half true. "Everything's fine." Their tone invited no argument.

Cat gave a slow nod. They didn't like making promises like this, ones that they couldn't be sure they'd be able to keep. Some part of them, the ghost of what Derick had killed, wanted to do it because it was right. He was a child, and it wouldn't be long before he was seriously hurt. The part of them that had replaced that kindness said it was necessary that he stay and repay for the injury he had caused.

"I'll do what I can." They turned around and waved Molly over. She hurried across the beach, a worried look on her face. "In the meantime you'll have to stay here and payback the damage you caused Hope, as well as help around to compensate us for the trouble we'll be going to. It won't be too bad, and you won't be hurt." They assured him. "This is Molly. She'll help find you somewhere you can rest up, and get you some unsalted water. Also, Ma, if you see Mord, tell him to have a look at Hope."

Cat crossed their arms as they debated how to answer the question. Gabe likely wouldn't believe that nothing was wrong, as they hadn't tried to disguise their disdain whatsoever, even if he didn't press it. "I don't like guns." They stated simply. "But they've got their practical uses." As much as they hated to admit that, it was true. Getting up close and personal with brass knuckles or knifes or clubs wasn't always smart or safe, and sometimes it was necessary to kill quickly from afar.

They glanced over at Hope as she appeared, rolling their eyes at her comment. "Badass?" Maybe they were just biased, but they didn't think firearms were badass. Not at all. If you could aim before someone else took aim at you, pull the trigger before someone else did, you won. Give them a real fight, a real struggle, one that wasn't cut and dry. Give them bloody noses and bruised knuckles, things that spoke of survival through trials. That was badass.

The sounds of yelling had brought them to the border, where they watched Gabriel threaten someone, and that someone foolishly attempt to make things better in the worst way possible. They could intervene, put an end to all this quite easily, but they didn't. They wanted to see what he would do. Truth be told, they were kind of surprised when the boy fired the gun, wincing even though they knew that a shot was possible.

But it was only the person's arm, and whatever points for ruthlessness he may have gotten were spent when he put the gun aside and tried to help the person he had just shot. Cat sighed from their hidden position, even though some part of them knew it was better that way. But that brought up the next question: would the Officer bring him to Cat, or send him off? In some part of their mind, it wasn't even a question - of course he'd bring his victim to Cat, that's what he was supposed to do and that's what he'd do.

But he surprised Cat, perhaps more than any of his other actions, by sending them away. It was at that point that they rose from their hidden position and started towards him, getting closer and closer until they were near enough that they could attempt to place a hand on Gabe's shoulder. "What was that about?" They kept their voice calm, restricted themself to the one question.

The Badlands / The Casino OVER A MILLION WORDS THAT I COULD SAY [VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY]
« on: February 14, 2019, 05:58:02 PM »

Ah, Valentine's Day. Cat had never really been one for it; any holiday after their father left had always been a bittersweet occasion, and Valentine's day was no different. Molly would always try to get them chocolate and they'd be a familial sort of Valentine to each other. They could always tell that the day made her sad, though. It wasn't celebrated much in the Young Rogues, but Derick and his family liked to observe the holiday for some fun and cheer. They were always sort of included, but like with everything else that family did, it was only to an extent.

Things were a bit more jolly at the bar, old decorations put up and anyone that wanted to sing was given a chance to. Susie always made pork on Valentine's day, but Cat was pretty sure it was just so she could be seen butchering something should any lonely man try his luck with her. They usually avoided the bar on days like that.

And now they were having a party. There'd been a fair bit of set up to do, but just as they'd told Gavril, they delegated. Hope and Paige took care of flowers; the former also assisted with the cooking and the latter lent her iPod for music. They were the heroes of this event, though a few others had helped put up garlands of paper hearts around the walls. Each table that lined the walls had a red tablecloth and a bowl or a vase of flowers, whatever the girls thought would look cute, along with some tea lights placed carefully so as not to allow the petals or leaves to catch. There was a buffet set up near the bar, both of which were manned by NPCs.

The games and gambling tables had been moved to a back room, all but a few in one corner in case anyone felt that the music and company wasn't enough to keep them entertained. It wasn't the fanciest party ever put together for this day in history, but it wasn't too bad. And Cat had hardly lifted a finger. They couldn't help it - they loved being the boss.

The delegation from Flintlock was starting to arrive; a few Badlanders were already in the casino but there were a few that were making their arrivals now too. Today's jacket bore the letters "the less I know the better", with a couple kissing below it. It seemed appropriate. "Best behavior." They'd mutter whenever a Badlander passed them, though the Lodgers got a warmer welcome of "Welcome to the Badlands."

Positive outlets were something they'd never known, aside from maybe when they were a child and could play with toy cars long enough that they could forget what had bothered them or at least convince themself that it would be okay. As they got older, though, toy cars were no longer a suitable way to relieve stress, not that they were able to keep the playthings anyway.

When they were a teenager they turned to brawling, picking fights and sometimes losing, sometimes winning. Oh god. It was back to Susie again - Susie, who saw almost every fight they were in, Susie, who always patched them back up. And with what she was likely to do, they'd need some more patching up before long.

Jeez, and now Gabe was there too? Well, they agreed with him that Hope and Mordecai weren't helping, though when he suggested that they go home they scowled. "Aren't I a big enough disappointment to my mother without adding 'drunkard' to the list?" They were a runaway that renounced their given name, a murderer that had proven themself as the baddest of all the rest of the murderers and were leading them. They kept secrets and kissed boys without acknowledging it. And more, undoubtedly they did more that disappointed or shamed or maybe even angered Molly.

They'd just... stay here for the night, and make up some lie in the morning. Cat knew when to stop, when they came close to losing whatever sense they had left. And fortunately, they still had some. Still, they snorted at the idea that this wasn't already out of hand, because it was. Not in the way that the boy was thinking, but still. "It's already out of hand." They said, straightening up and closing their eyes. "But it'll be okay. I'll figure it out." Some part of them knew that's the attitude they'd have when they weren't so hyper focused on what was wrong, but right now they didn't really believe the words leaving their lips.

Then Gavril was there, wrapping his arms around them. They jumped a little, but it wasn't like they could go anywhere with him holding on to them. "It's fine, Gavril. He's just trying to help." His chin was resting on the top of their head then, but they didn't have the will to try and push him away. "Is the casino always this busy at this hour or did I make it a special occasion?"

Hope was the first one to walk up to them, and as she did they held out one of the necklaces for her. To their surprise and pleasure, she asked about the party too. "When is anything I do lowkey?" They asked with a chuckle, despite the fact that she was new and wouldn't know them very well at all. Well, she had the guts to yell "what's up motherfucker" in the middle of a meeting, so maybe she could understand not doing things subtly. "We'll talk about this later, yeah?"

They had indeed caught Gavril's silent little "make me", but they hadn't acknowledged it. Things were bloody transparent enough as it was. Fortunately he didn't say anything aloud when he walked over, they weren't sure how they would deal with that boy's mouth if he decided to open it. After a small internal debate, they held out the necklace for him to take.

Along with the newbies, Michael walked over; they thought it might be about the party, but instead he asked about bringing moonshine to the Lodge. Ugh, disgusting stuff. They'd never understand why anyone liked it. "You're gonna push a boulder up a mountain?" Weird, but maybe Flintlock would see that they actually did mean well. "Sure, go ahead." He did then bring up the Valentine's party, prompting Catalyst to nod. "That's what I was thinking as well."

Cat's gaze flicked skyward as they tried to understand the strange way that Jackson had phrased it. They lifted a hand, one finger pointed outward while the rest were at least partially curled. "Are you saying that apologizing to Brendan might help or hurt things?" Maybe it wouldn't do anything, and the words would just sit there, unbelieved and unaccepted.

Cat scoffed and rolled their eyes. "We live in a sensible climate. Forgive me for not being used to your blistering winter." At his answer to their question about the bachelor party, they shrugged. Wonderful, less work for them to do. "How romantic of you." They wondered if Austin had been this excited about marrying their mother, if he'd had that kind of joy at being Molly's husband. They brushed it off; if they continued down that rabbit hole they'd surely just become sad, and now wasn't the time.

"Hope, see if the Lodgers need anything to eat or drink before we set out. Gabe, come with me." With the senior of their Officers locked up, that left Gabe to keep an eye on things. He'd need instructions on what to do while they were away, and, since the paranoia wouldn't leave them be, what to do if they didn't come back. "I need to speak to you and Molly before I go. Oh, and Jackson," they added, turning back to the future groom, "I've not got a horse. That won't be an issue, will it?" They had an easy, almost friendly smile on their face, casually concealing the threads of suspicion they had.

//tw for talking about killing

They drank when they were young, sure. The first time had been when they went with the older kids of Mourningstar, deciding that one night of acting like a peer surely couldn't hurt. Well, it hadn't hurt them, it had made them a legend in the eyes of the fools they had drank with, but it had resulted in a body count for the fifteen year old. They weren't so sure whether to be proud of that or not.

After that night they eased up, only drinking on occasion and never too much. They discovered quite quickly that they liked to be sharp, that they didn't like their thoughts to be muddled. It didn't feel like their thoughts were muddled now. It all felt perfectly clear: all their demons were coming to get them. What about Tydeus? Would he hear about them being in charge again and decide to fug them over once more? Would the people here care? Were they loyal to Catalyst, or whoever had the guts to take charge? Did they care?

Now, there was some logical, sober part of them that knew they were overreacting, overthinking. Tyd was never coming back, he was in too deep in his own business with Bones. But the part of their mind that spoke sense was quiet tonight, or maybe it was just drowned by the liquor. Who were they to say?

They jumped, a little, when Hope set her glass on the counter and sat next to them (this is why they didn't drink, they reminded themself). "Do I look like a fugging bartender?" Whatever they'd been drinking, it was stronger than Susie's moonshine, that was for damn sure. "Bet whatever you like, but I'm not playing." Maybe she did have it worse than them. Maybe her world was already on fire, with no chance of stopping it or putting it out. Or maybe she was an angsty teenage girl. "Do I look as if the pain is gone?" Cat asked, looking at her out of the corner of their eye. No. The answer was definitely no. They were a mess.

Then someone else joined them, Mordecai. Jesus Christ, how many people were lurking around the casino at this hour? "I've already had enough." They said as Mord poured a third drink. Then, all of a sudden, they started laughing. "Fugging pathetic." They said, shaking their head. Why is it they could only ever find a sense of camaraderie at the bottom of a glass?

Hope woke up, taking the whole thing surprisingly well. Good. Their gaze went to the kid while she wiped the blood away, but their hand was there for her when she was ready to get up. They opened their mouth to answer Aj's question, but before they could, Hope did. Maybe it would just be too convenient to be able to drink ocean water.

They're not surprised that the kid doesn't remember them; after all he'd been what, two? Something like that? When Cat had met him. Hardly more than a baby. "When you were much smaller, Nellie brought you to the town I lived in." Technically they lived outside the town, bit away from it, but they didn't want to get into the complexities.

"The only food you could get was in a bar, but Nellie was too young to go in so I got you guys some dinner. I remember because I got so much shit for it." From Gerald, specifically; he liked his god cruel and violent, not helping runaway children. "I haven't seen her since, but I can try to help you find her." Jeez, they were turning into a regular bleeding heart, weren't they?

They're not all dark, however, as they have pale blue eyes that peer out from beneath medium-sized eyebrows.

PERSONALITY   if it feels good, tastes good, it must be mine
⇥ Catalyst is ambitious, with the cunning and ruthlessness to reach their goals by any means necessary. They can be brutal when they feel it is needed, however when it's not they won't bother. They tend to be rather aloof and apathetic to most things and people, with some very rare exceptions. Provided those around them don't cross a few specific lines, they're content to leave them be, though they've been known to take an interest in some people, which seldom has a positive end for whoever their interest is in. They can be manipulative, and will often encourage people to make bad decisions. Those that stick by them will be rewarded, but those that do not will be cast out, as they've been outcast for their entire life and have learned to appreciate loyalty wherever they can find it. Even during the most stressful of situations, they usually keep a firm grip on their temper and keep their calm, though when they do snap and lose their temper, it is uncontrollable. They're remarkably observant, often able to deign much from subtle clues in what people say, how they say it and how they act.

The Badlands / The Casino POUR ME [open, drunk]

//tw for drinking, panicked thoughts, uhh and probably the usual stuff with Cat like violence and death but I don't fully know where their mind is gonna go yet so that's fun

Susie's visit had fucked them up. They had kept calm through the whole thing, through the aftermath and Molly's interrogation. Everything was fine. There was nothing to worry about. She'd go home, and that would be the end of it. Everything was fine. They were fine. She was an old friend with some unresolved issues. That's all. They kept saying the words, figuring if they said them enough, they'd start to believe it.

They didn't. The more they thought about it, the more they didn't believe it. Of course rumors about them were going to spread, they were the new big bad boss of the Badlands, word like that didn't stay quiet for long, and certainly not in a place like that. People passed through there spinning all sorts of tales, and the locals didn't exactly keep their lips locked.

But why had they? Surely if their whereabouts had made it back to Mourningstar, someone would have come after them by now, right? Susie said Louie was still in there drinking. Cat knew him, knew he was a brainwashed idiot that would have surely told his father, assuming Derick was still running things. And really, what else was Derick going to do? Maybe their final words to their almost-brother had been enough to make him see sense. They sure hoped so. But that was another thing they didn't believe.

It wouldn't be long before Derick or Louie or Gerald or any number of people from the cult came trying to find them. Susie had been pushy, but the people of Mourningstar wouldn't take no for an answer. Maybe they'd try to kidnap them. Pluck them from the border on one of their patrols, or break into their house and steal them from their bed. It was all too easy to imagine what they might do.

Fugging hell. They needed a drink.

They'd had the alcohol Vinny gave them brought to the casino and put up in the bar; part of them was a bit surprised to see that it was still there, if perhaps a little depleted. As lawless as these people were, at least they had the good sense not to steal from the goddamn casino. They poured themself a drink and sat down at the bar, and it wasn't too long before they had poured several drinks and now had their arms propped up on the counter, their head in the hands. "Fugging hell. This was a mistake."

What had they been thinking? Why did they think this would help? Maybe it had been too long since their last drink to remember what it did to them, but there was a goddamn reason for that. Now their mind was wandering all over the place, going to even darker places than it had sober. But even if it didn't make them a paranoid mess, it still brought their mind back around to her.

They'd met her in the bar, after all. It's where she worked, it's where they had their first drink and she was the one that had served it to them. That bar was where she'd tell Louie, maybe even Derick himself, where Catalyst was. She'd tell him that she'd seen them here with her own eyes, that all the rumors about them were true. And then Derick or his son or whoever else would come find them, and they wouldn't leave them alone until they were back in their twisted temple.

And who knows what other enemies they had that might decide to make an appearance.

Fug. Fuck.

They groaned and rubbed their eyes. "It all was. One after another." Their glass was still half full of some amber liquid; they might have spent a great deal of time in a bar as a teenager, but it was all homemade moonshine. They never bothered learning all the different types of alcohol and the names and the brands - why the hell would they? They despised this stuff. And now they remembered why.

They pushed the glass, nudging it a couple inches, then they practically hit it, sending it sailing over the counter, where it crashed below. "Idiot." They grumbled to themself. "Fuggin' drunk arse idiot." They had but one sober thought: they didn't want to go home and face Molly like this. They were ashamed enough as it was.
