「 ♡ PROJECT START / TASKS. 」
« on: October 07, 2018, 07:03:30 PM »
The idea came quietly, as most things do, but once it had seeped underneath his skin, there was no escape from it. Tydeus had always been good at picturing the future, or dreaming of it, and this was so far from normal for his thoughts. He dreamed of simple, mundane things. A sweet and simple life, back in the grass with the taste of apple on his tongue. Then there were others, ones he couldn't think of repeating, but this one this specific one, blossomed into an idea that could only be reality. One day, with work. It was still early in the day when he decided to get started, the small figure of The Badlands' Overboss standing on the steps outside of their casino. He had no interest in the places that everyone else had used to speak even this wasn't quite right. But it was a start. Tydeus whistles, noise echoing throughout the immediate area. "Hey, I've got an idea. Get over here."

/ sakflh i've got a migraine sorry if this doesn't make much sense, it's the start to them building the gauntlet / obstacle course thing!

"What are we, dogs?" Had Tydeus slapped his thighs, too, it would have completed the image - but this was good enough, he supposed. A shrill whistle to beckon eager puppies to his side, or something to that effect. Now, Archambeau was far from an obedient pet, closer to a feral cat in terms of his compliancy, but he approached regardless, intrigued by the promise of an idea. Usually, when people got ideas, they were either full of manual labour, dangerous, or an amalgamation of the two, and Archie couldn't help but hope it was one of the latter two. He wasn't so against the concept of physical work if there was something to keep his blood running hot thrown into the mix. "Don't answer that. I think I already know what you're going to say." He nestled his hands in his pockets and grinned, loose and sharp and more than a little curious. "I'm not playing fetch, though. What's the idea?"

In truth, Tydeus did see most of the people here as little more than dogs. Something to be trained and directed as necessary, useful but not worth confiding in or treating as equals. It's something he does to protect himself, which is a shitty excuse at best. Had he heard of someone thinking like this a few years ago, he would have felt disgusted by them. As it is, he's learned that this is the way the world works. A bunch of dogs ready to tear each other to pieces over scraps, people who are all too willing to betray a friend. So... no friends, no connections, nothing to betray. He's had enough of that. In that regard, maybe Archie and Tyd are both feral cats, though his is more in regards to the way he lives than the way he interacts. But even with that unwillingness to communicate, there's a bit of charisma left in him. The young man grins slowly when Archie waves off his own question, as curiously relaxed as the other. "Don't tell me the puppy doesn't want to play." He laughs a little then shakes his head. "I think we need to make things a little more interesting, don't you? So let's make a maze. Something to test everyone's abilities. You up for helping?"

Dehumanising people was a slippery slope to genocide - or something like that. Once you stopped seeing people as people, it was very easy to stop treating them like people, giving them the respect people deserved, and at that point, they became little more than pawns. Slaves. The sorts of things that needed nothing more than the bare minimum to keep them going - sometimes even less than that - and a liberal-enough amount of pain to keep them on their toes. You went from disdain to disgust to apathy, and apathy was the most dangerous of the lot. Once somebody stopped caring, appealing to their empathy became pointless, if only because there was no empathy. He'd teetered on that line for a time, but not because he thought of himself as above everybody else. Desperation might drive a man to cruelty, but to wield a whip willingly - that was unforgivable. Or so he thought. "Woof," he deadpanned sarcastically, staring at his shoes. A maze did sound fun, though. More to run through than to build, but he knew he had to slog through the latter before he could indulge in the former. "Alright. How can I be of assistance, O Great One?"
