Northstar District / I GOT A HOME TO BREAK [open]

CATALYST

//smol fyi this is liquid timed to take place a few weeks ago... when I should have posted it... but never got around to it until now

The note Paige had left was vague enough that, with any luck, neither Salem nor his goons would be smart enough to figure out what it meant. Still, they hadn't left it lying around, they weren't about to risk something happening to her. Though getting them to admit it was damn near impossible, they truly did view Paige like a little sister. If anyone ever hurt her, they had better pray to Fate for mercy because Cat sure wasn't going to give it.

They couldn't just track her down right away, though. They had their mother, their boyfriend, their children, their brother. Five people they had to ensure the safety of. Paige could take care of herself, she had the dogs. They had to believe that she'd be okay. Bringing the rest of their family to Northstar wasn't an option, not really, not when the last time they were there they had come to blows with Green yet again. They weren't welcome there, and they were not about to put anyone else on the line either.

But with their family safe, they had to find the missing pieces. So here they were, on Northstar's border, looking rather worse-for-wear.

CATALYST

//tw for violence and paranoia? mainly that tbh

Things had been escalating.

They didn’t say so publicly, no longer sure who they could trust. They knew they were being followed, that their family was too. There were messages being left for them, warnings and threats, they just covered them up. Couldn’t have the general populace catching wind of this, could they? But it was bound to happen. People were bound to notice that a civil war was brewing, and what would happen then? The only people Cat was convinced would defend them were made up largely of the exact people they didn’t want getting involved.

Their family was just something they couldn’t risk. Not even for the Badlands, for their home, for their power. This wasn’t like how it was a year and a half ago; they had something that they were petrified of losing. And the fear was getting worse as the danger became more clear. The paranoia was starting to consume their every thought, but was it paranoia really? They knew that Salem had people following them. They’d beaten the shit out of a couple already. Some of the messages were even addressed to them.

But they still thought they could fight this, root out the traitors and get control once again. Control. Like such a thing exists. Everything is decided by Fate. They just pray She doesn’t take another family member. They can’t handle that. They can’t. But these messages, what if they’re signs from Her? Signs that it’s time to move on, go somewhere new? It won’t be the first time She’s urged them somewhere else. Maybe they aren’t meant to be here anymore.

But still Cat clings to the Badlands, unwilling to let go so easily. Not to Salem of all people. But that all changed when they woke to the sound of glass shattering, raining down into their bedroom. A rock. Cat was on their feet in an instant, and even in the darkness they could make out the word “TONIGHT” written on it in what appeared to be blood.

Alright, Fate, you had their attention. ”Get the kids.” They said to Gav, scrambling to get themself dressed. ”We’re getting out of here.” Once they were dressed, they were hurrying to check their weapons while Gav pulled himself together too. ”Here, take this. Wait in the kid’s room while I grab Molly.” They said, passing him their old handgun.

”What’s going on?” He asked, frowning as he tucked the gun into the waistband of his pants.

”Salem’s making his bid for power. Go, come on.” Then the two were hurrying into the kids’ room, which was blessedly peaceful. Bas was awake, likely woken by the window breaking. He looked scared. ”I’ll be right back.” They said, touching Gavril’s arm briefly before heading downstairs. They kept away from the windows, only looking out while trying to figure out if there was anyone lurking in the darkness, waiting for them.

You know what? If there was, let them come. There was a reason they were the longest reigning leader in Badlands’ history, why they had once been worshipped as a god. But no one confronted them as they slipped next door. Charles barked when they came in, but was shushed a moment later. Molly was awake, woken by the dog, a very confused expression on her face. ”It’s not safe here, we’re leaving. Come on.” Their tone bid no argument, but she did try to ask them what was happening. She received the same answer Gav did.

The two of them went back to Cat’s house, where Gav was waiting with the kids. ”Mom, you take Mo, Gav you take Bas. Head east, I’ll catch up with you as soon as I can.” If they did run into trouble, Bas could at least stand and walk on his own two feet if Gav needed to fend someone off.

”What about you?” Gav asked, even more worry and fear registering on his face.

They pressed a quick kiss to his lips. ”I need to get Paige and Louie.” No one was getting left behind. He sucked his lips nervously but nodded. Then they were splitting up, the four of them fleeing, but Cat went deeper into the Badlands, eventually coming to the small house that their brother occupied. After a minute of pounding on the door he emerged, bleary eyed and confused. ”No time to explain, just come with me.”

Then they were going to Paige’s. They pounded on the door, but there was nothing. No dogs barking or baby crying, nor did Paige answer the door. Fear gripped their heart and without wasting any more time, the two of them broke down the door. The house was empty. No dogs, no signs of Paige. Still, the two of them looked around, trying to find… anything. There were no signs of struggle, everything looked like it had before. ”Scott, over here.”

Cat was at Louie’s side instantly. He’d found a note, worded vaguely enough that anyone that didn’t know her situation would be able to figure anything out. But Cat, knowing who Felicity’s father was, could guess pretty easily that she was going to Northstar. ”Come on. Let’s go back to the others.” There was no use sticking around here, every moment was a risk. So they put the note in their pocket and disappeared into the night, along with the rest of their family.


OOC: okay guys, this is it! I’m stepping down and Cat (and co) have left the Badlands. Darky/Salem will be taking over, and I have every faith in their ability to lead! As to why I’ve decided to step down, there were a few reasons. My muse has been on the decline of late, as has been my motivation to post with Cat. I haven’t reached burnout yet, but I’d like to give myself a break before that happens, since I love their character and would hate to see what happened to Marine happen to them. So! This will likely not be the last you’ll see of them.

In addition to that, I’ve had less muse and motivation for rp (it’s not entirely gone), but I’d like to focus more on other areas. Not only that, though, but I feel like the Badlands needs this. I’ve been leading for 14 months, so I feel like it’s time for a shake up, time for the group to have a chance to grow in new ways. Cat’s leadership has brought a level of stability and peace that… is rather contrary to what the group at its core is about and what quite a few people like to see. I tried to get Cat to get some bigger shit rolling, piss off the right people, but at the same time my muse was struggling and actually getting big developments done was a bit of a struggle.

Anyway, like I said, I’ve got every faith in Darky to be a good leader! Things weren’t always easy here, but it was a really good time leading the Badlands and I had a lot of fun and made a lot of friends, and this definitely won’t be the last you see of me or Cat.

So this thread isn't really meant to be replied to icly, since it's Cat and their family disappearing in the middle of the night. A thread with Salem taking over should be up shortly! Feel free to track this or leave comments or good byes, though

The Badlands / NEXT TIME I HOLD YOU CLOSE I'M NOT LETTING GO [MEETING]

CATALYST

Once again, Cat strode into the casino in less than top shape. It was becoming more and more of a pattern, no? Whatever, they didn't fucking care. "Meeting's out here this time." They called, just in case there was anyone inside waiting for them to the meeting. If there was anyone inside, they'd wait until everyone filed out before shutting the doors.

With a flick of their wrist, two npcs carried up the fire pit, another brought a chair and another brought a box and a fire poker ending with a metal piece shaped in the letters BL. "Put those over there. Get that fire lit and put the brand in there to heat up." They ordered, gesturing to where they wanted the chair and everything else.

//tw for violence, blood, scars, injuries, etc

Salem wanted a fucking fight? Fine, he'd get one. Whatever it took to end this once and for all and get to the bottom of whatever conspiracy he'd concocted. They were done with all of this shit. Surprisingly enough, the Badlands didn't have a designated mud pit, so one needed to be prepared. Once that was done, though, Cat made their way there, shirt and trademark jackets already discarded. The cold February pricked at their skin, but they ignored it. Soon enough that wouldn't be an issue.

Scars already covered their torso from all manner of weapons, but the most notable was definitely the Badlands Brand, letters BL seared into their flesh nearly a year ago. Would they get some more scars today? They certainly didn't discount that as a possibility. "Oi, Salem, where the fug are you?!" Losing wasn't an option. Now more than ever, losing wasn't an option.

The Badlands / NEED YOU LIKE THAT [CARNIVAL]
« on: February 21, 2020, 11:41:15 PM »
//tw for a brief reference to violence

When the large group of brightly dressed people had arrived with their wagons, Cat's immediate instinct was that this was an invasion. As it turned out... no, it was not an invasion, but a group of people who derived their resources and happiness from traveling around and setting up games for people to play.

Still a little suspicious, Cat had agreed. What reason did they really have to say no anyway? It would be fun for their people, a way to cut loose that didn't involve actually cutting someone. Didn't see too many of those these days, huh? So the carnival people had set up, largely along the beach since that had the most relatively flat space, though a few booths were in the streets as well.

Most of the booths had games, classics like ring toss, balloon pop, shooting gallery, duck pond, bean bag toss, and so on. There was food, too, a surprising amount. Candied apples, popcorn, kettlecorn, corndogs. It was the apocalypse, so none of it was quite right, but it was as good as it got these days.

Cat was wandering around with Mo in their arms, Basile trailing behind close behind them. They weren't too interested in the games, but there was no reason the kids should miss out.

The Badlands / I AM A LOST CAUSE SINGING TO THE CHOIR [open, Mason]
« on: February 15, 2020, 08:34:24 PM »
So they had been paired up with Mason for Sheo's little Valentine thing... cool. They barely knew the guy, but that meant they had nothing bad to say about him. That was getting pretty rare these days. Finding a way to be... nice or whatever hadn't been easy, but after a bit of wandering around they found some colored pencils. He liked art, so maybe he'd like these. "Anybody seen Mason?"

The Badlands / WANNA MAKE THE BIRDS FORGET ALL OF THEIR SONGS [MEETING]
« on: February 08, 2020, 09:51:41 PM »
Cat was in rough shape. Emotionally, physically and mentally. These past few months had been brutal, and it didn't seem as if things were going to let up. But still they made their way into the casino, plopping themself down onto the billiard table without any grace or ceremony. "Meeting."

The Badlands / LET THE BEAT HIT HARDER THAN A BOXA [MEETING]
« on: January 25, 2020, 11:41:04 PM »
OOC: it's important to note that this meeting will be retro to the raid to give people a chance to reply to it. any ic rewards that are earned will be in the next meeting

Jesus fucking Christ, they had a lot to go over that week. Well, that was probably a good thing, right? Things were moving, an especially good thing after their complaints about how slow things had been leading up to the last meeting. Now they had the opposite problem, but it was a good thing to have. "Meeting time." They called, putting down the cardboard box on the billiard table and turning around to face the casino.

//can you tell I had no ideas for this first post. dw the second post will be much more interesting

The Badlands / AND I HAD TO PUT THE FADE ON EM [RAID]
« on: January 24, 2020, 03:51:14 PM »
//tw for violence, blood, death, injuries. just through the whole thread

The Badlands' reputation protected them to an extent. People seldom thought that it was wise to challenge an infamously violent group, and those that did always regretted it. Unless they were at war with another group, raids were practically unheard of. Raids on them, that is, they conducted their own raids all the time.

Their reputation was something of a double-edged sword, though, because while they were known for being vicious, it was also known that they had a fair bit of loot from all of their raids. Something that was enticing for lone thieves (that often were captured and made into worms) and traders. It also meant they had a long list of enemies.

This, all, was speculation. Well it was facts, but it was speculation as to what brought on the group of vagrants to the Badlands. Cat had no idea who they were, but it became very clear that they were here to steal whatever they could and hurt whoever got in their way.

So, naturally, Cat decided to get in the way. They weren't about to let a horde of assholes take their shit, trash their home and hurt their people. So the moment they heard signs of conflict, they were up and running outside, fingers already slipped into their brass knuckles, one hand itching towards their gun. There were a lot of people running around, a couple were even on horseback. If they could manage to keep the horses alive and wrangle them from the raiders, they'd make a fine reward for having to put up with this bullshit.

Cat went towards the first NPC they saw, one that was harassing a worm. They caught the raider with a right hook that made a sickening crack. He fell immediately. They dug a pair of brass knuckles from their pants (they never went anywhere without at least four on their person) and passed it to the worm. "Defend us, you're a grunt. Betray us, you're dead." And with that they stalked off, looking for another fight.

OOC: ok hey guys, you may have seen that I was talking about this on the discord. Basically, this is a random raid done by NPCs that are either out for revenge or just for loot, it's unclear which. Either way, there's around ~18 or so (number is flexible so if people want to interact with more or less, that's fine) people attacking the Badlands. Anyone that is in BL currently or joins by the next meeting (Sunday) is free to participate. You can powerplay the npcs however you like, be it your character fighting one you're controlling, or playing some for others to fight (if anyone wants to do this with me, hmu) to make the fights a little more interesting.

As I mentioned in the discord, this is not an ordinary event. Participation in this can lead to a bunch of rewards, such as newer members being able to earn bandannas, older ones potentially qualifying for the brand, and drumroll please... if we get 15 posts on this thread, Toddbot will be added to the discord. If this goes well, this may become a more regular sort of event (not necessarily raids like this, I'll try and keep it different) with more rewards. If anyone has any questions or feedback, I would honestly love to hear what y'all think of this and how the idea can be improved / if it should be scrapped.

Flintlock Lodge / fake it [invite]
« on: January 18, 2020, 08:25:46 PM »
Apparently Cat wasn't willing to hike up Flintlock's mountain in the winter, and so the NPC had gotten stuck with the task. They hadn't minded initially, but now they were regretting their assignment. Nonetheless, they were going to get it done. Cat had promised them that they'd get to be a Grunt once the task was complete, an offer rarely extended. So there they were, on Flintlock's border, shivering since they didn't realize how cold it was. They'd worn a coat, of course, but not a warm enough one.

//tw ofc for violence and injuries

Right, with Cat pissing off just about everyone they possibly could, it was probably a good thing to get a bit closer with the one group they didn't have some grudge against. And why not double that with a battle training? Hone some skills, test out and teach the newbies, it was perfect. Still, for as brilliant as the whole idea seemed, part of them was unsure of how it would go. They weren't sure that they'd go so far as to say that they had been friends with Hayley, but they'd had a good rapport. Eddie... they weren't so sure.

They were gonna try and think rationally (for once) and try not to piss him off.

Since for the most part, everyone gathered around them was someone they barely knew, let alone knew how well they fought, even among their own since so many were new. They gathered everyone on the beach, since it was the safest, most open area for this sort of thing. They'd had a couple of worms clear it of rocks, seashells and glass, though no one here was expected to be barefoot.

"Alright, help me out. How many of you know... anything about fighting?" It was pretty clear just from looking at Cat that they'd had their brushes with violence, from the scars to the fading bruises.

The Badlands / YOU SHOULD BE SAD [MEETING]
« on: January 11, 2020, 07:32:41 PM »
Time was weird. They knew that quite a bit had happened since the last meeting, yet at the same time not very much either. It felt like it had been two, maybe three weeks, yet their emotional state had changed very little. There was still a darkness surrounding them, but it wasn't their usual edgy aura. This was just sadness and grief and simmering anger.

But life carried on, and they still had a job to do. So into the casino they went, hopping up onto their usual billiard table and setting the cardboard box next to them. "Meeting."

The Badlands / HALF OF ME HAS DISAPPEARED [open]
« on: January 07, 2020, 07:32:15 PM »
//tw for violence and blood and death. you know a badlands thread

The blood had dried a while ago.

On their face, on their hands. They hadn't done anything to take care of it, which they knew was stupid. But then, so was getting into a very public fight with the leader of a trading partner over very little. They weren't in their normal state of mind. Actually, their normal state of mind was stupid and reckless too, but now they were even more so. They were acting out, trying to find something to take their mind off of their father's death.

Reuniting with Addy and getting into a fight with Green had done it, all right. Seeing their former second in command in Northstar... hadn't been so great. And technically, since the fight with Green hadn't quite gone as well as they might have hoped, it wasn't either. But the fight had gotten their blood pumping, their heart roaring. They'd started wondering if they still had one.

But then they'd gotten to walk back to the Badlands, alone with their thoughts. And their thoughts were not good. The emptiness had returned, now there was nothing but the pain from losing Austin and from their injuries to be felt. They'd thought that some alone time was what they needed, a chance to get away from the Badlands and even their family. They thought they needed the chance to exist on their own and remember that they were their own person.

When they stopped for a drink in a stream and saw their reflection, it didn't seem right.

They were their own person. They knew, in their head, that that was true. They had just lost sight of who that person was and they weren't even sure it started with the loss of their father. They didn't know who they were anymore, and maybe it had started with Derick's death, or when they left Mourningstar, or when Derick stripped them of their old identity to begin with.

Maybe they hadn't been themself in nine years.

Cat wasn't just their own person though, they were a pawn. A servant of a Goddess they thought was rewarding them for all that they did for Her. And She was, She gave them the Badlands and Molly and Gav and Mo and Louie and Austin. Things that made their miserable existence worth it. But She also couldn't just let them have it; Tyd had to cut short their first reign, they had to have a huge fight with Molly, Gav had to get shot, Louie had to talk about Mourningstar and Austin had to die. (Fate, if you have any mercy at all, don't let anything happen to Mo. Anyone but her.)

Fate was a cruel mistress, She really was. They did whatever She willed, went wherever She wanted, were whatever She wanted. And they knew She had to keep balance but every time She did it all just felt so unfair. Why did other people have to suffer for their happiness?

Well, they sure weren't happy now, making their way back into the Badlands. They were in rough shape, yet somehow it wasn't as bad as previous times.

The responsibility of planning the funeral had fallen to an NPC. Both Cat and Molly were too distressed for it, though both tried to help a little. It ended up being a small ceremony, held on the outskirts of the Badlands. Cat wanted the grave to be deeper, but the ground was hard from the cold and there was only so much that could be done. An NPC said a few words, then Molly.

Cat stayed silent, staring at the dirt that covered their father's body. They had dressed plainly that day, wearing a black suit with no decoration on it at all. Molly was also clad in the same color, a hat obscuring her face and her dress going down to her ankles. Except for when she was giving her eulogy, she practically clung to Cat's arm, burying her face in it. She'd ended up cutting her remarks short, and now the two were just standing there.

They hadn't cried yet. That was weird, right? Even Derick had gotten some tears. And while they felt the need to, felt them pricking their eyes, they didn't. Not now, but maybe later, when they were all alone, they would give themself permission to feel this pain and grief they were trying so desperately not to feel.

The Badlands / The Casino SHOULD HAVE TRIED TO GET TO KNOW YOU [MEETING]
« on: December 28, 2019, 11:30:12 PM »
//tw for death and blood

Cat hadn't changed out of the clothes they'd worn to the jailbreak.

Their jacket was relatively clean, removed before they'd gone into battle, but everything else was stained with blood. Shoes, pants, shirt, weapons, hands and face. That wasn't all that uncommon, though, any time there was violence to be had, Cat wore that shit into the casino and gave their announcements. There were a number of reasons why they did that, be it to rile up the Badlanders or to act like some sort of badass.

That wasn't the case today. They'd lost their father. Their dad was dead and now there was this emptiness inside them. Part of them was gone, part of them that they didn't even know that they could lose. They didn't know what they were, if this void inside them was it or if they were numb too or in so much emotional pain that they couldn't even comprehend it, or just plain disassociating.

In any case, they were covered in blood and their eyes were blank.

Cat stood in front of their usual billiard table for a long time, just staring at it, before finally blinking and shaking their head. "Let's just get this over with." In other words, meeting time.
