Take a little walk to the edge of town //open, joinings
« on: July 15, 2019, 11:43:17 PM »
What if I'm far from home?
Oh brother, I will hear you call!     
Oh sister, I will help you out!
  They weren't sure how they got here, to Badlands, but there they were. A group of five boys made their way from the woods and into the town, nobody had welcomed them or told them to stop hence their continuance into the unknown group's territory. They wouldn't stop until an arrow flew through the air and stopped right in front of Dimitri's feet. The boys were quick to pull out their weapons, that was until the shooter of the arrow appeared into their line of sight with her crossbow going back into place.

The boys took a moment to put their guns away, but as soon as they were was when the family reunion began. Alek was first to run over and pull her into a tight embrace, her face buried against his chest. They were inseparable growing up. The others would pat her shoulder or ruffle her hair, but none would break the two apart. "Anya..." Alek still sounded surprised, as if he still hadn't processed that they had found her. Zeph was next to act, tapping on Alek for the two to pull apart just so the rest of the brothers could actually see what she looked like now.

"Still the shortest, but taller" Nico joked, getting a swift elbow in the gut from Alek which made Paige laugh. She then did her duty as a member of the group "Don't take your fucking weapons out you idiots. Best behavior, all of you. I'm looking at you Dimitri." she glared over at her second oldest brother, turning to escort her brothers further towards the casino.

"Are we getting drinks?"
"She's not old enough"
"And when has that ever stopped him from getting a drink?"
Paige rolled her eyes. Just as soon as the six reunited it was like nothing had changed. Nothing at all.
"I have drinks at my house, but if you're so damn impatient we can after someone does all the formal bullshit"

//Hi this is really bad and I'm running on a four hour nap but these are Paige's brothers I luv them and I swear their reunion was supposed to be more emotional than this but oh well.

Salem couldn't say he knew Paige well, or at all, but he had certainly never seen her surrounded by a giant gaggle of men. Well- actually no, he'd seen that, but he'd been apart of said gaggle and they'd all been focused on Catalyst being a dumbass with a spider.

And she looked happy- or well, relaxed. Cool, good for her, Salem couldn't say he wasn't eyeing up a few of the people she was walking with but he'd keep it to himself for now; he was starting to realize that promiscuousness wasn't as socially acceptable around here as it had been with his crew.

"I heard drinks? And who're these fine folk, might I add?" Salem said, falling in line with them and offering a lazy but genuine grin at them. He was always open to meeting new people, and if Paige could tolerate them then these guys were probably alright.

Border reunions were always sort of fascinating to watch, even if Cat didn't know the people involved. This one, though, they did know one of the people involved, and though they weren't likely to admit it for anyone to hear, they cared about Paige. They were close to her. So, it seemed, was the group of men that were walking towards the casino with her.

They walked over, arms crossed, eyeing up the group suspiciously. They tilted their head towards Salem, a silent answer the question. Probably better that he spoke before they had the chance; they wouldn't have been so generous in their phrasing.

APPEARANCE   dress me up and watch me die
⇥ Catalyst is 6'2" tall; they possess a lean and muscular body, one that has a variety of old scars adorning it. One of the easiest to notice is one that stretches down their right cheek. While not a scar, one very notable marking on their chest is the "BL" brand. They have two piercings, one in their tongue and the other in the cartilage of their left ear. They typically dress in dark colors (favoring jackets with some sort of writing on the back), and their hair is black. 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.

— like the next thing they needed was five big guys to come wandering into their territory. where were they when there was a whole war? could’ve used a couple meat-heads to fight for them- but they come after the entire mess? he crossed his arms over his chest as he got closer, eyeing the group as they greeted paige. they had to be either really good friends or family, that was pretty obvious. but, still, he’d simply move to stand a little behind the growing group to listen in on these newcomers.

Oh brother, I will hear you call!     
Oh sister, I will help you out!
  "We're her brothers" "Half brothers" She corrected with a sharp glare. The only two she would be okay with being fully related to was Nico and Alek, maybe Kai but even he had bad days with her. She stopped walking as people came to greet the annoying group following her. She let out a heavy sigh "These are my older brothers, Zephyriah..." he nodded in greeting "...Dimitri..." he was definitely either checking people out or sizing them up, that was until a sharp elbow to the stomach from his sister stopped him "...Malachi..." he was sorta just glaring, but nodded as well "...Nicodemus..." he glared at her "Nico, jeez okay...and Aleksandr" he actually waved.

"How long has Anya been here?" Alek questioned, they were unaware she didn't go by her first name or any nickname associated to it. However they would soon learn that her name was Anastasia, since Alek was the only one who really used Anya to refer to her. "Playing twenty questions about our dear Anastasia already, are we? Leave them alone Alek" Paige stood there pinching the bridge of her nose.

"Feel free to kick us out now, they're all a fuckin' handful" Nico muttered, glaring at his brothers while Paige felt like a stressed out mother of five. She turned to face them and crossed her arms over her chest "All of you, shut the hell up and let me fucking talk!" she snapped, it was Zeph who went to test her, but a hand went over his mouth. "Don't" he muttered before nodding to the youngest to talk.

Paige looked at Cat and Addy, who were newer to arrive on the scene "I am now accepting questions. They aren't answering shit because you let them talk again I will lose my fucking mind."

Cat and Addy had shown up, which wasn't surprising in the slightest. The most surprising thing is that they didn't butt in and start the interrogation early; but sadly, it seemed like it'd start up anyways. He wanted a drink, he didn't need introductions just yet.

He hooked his hands around his belt and stood around waiting as Paige introduced all of her apparent half brothers, who were referring to her by a different name. Maybe Paige was like, a nickname? Maybe her middle name? Eh, he didn't judge; he wasn't going by his first name nowadays, why would he give a fuck about that sort of revelation? Well, he'd give a bit of a fuck if it mattered to her, since he wasn't a huge jackass.

He glanced in Dimitri's direction and winked as soon as he realized the other man had been checking people out- or maybe sizing people up? Ehhhh, didn't really matter which. He continued to enjoy watching the sibling shenanigans, ignoring the blossoming weight in his chest that he hadn't felt in... Gods, it'd been years.

"First question, or well- more of a request. Is everyone allowed to call you Anya now, or should we stick to Paige?" Salem asked, tilting his head as he looked at her with a smirk. "Second question, can we still get drinks after this?"

Her half brothers? Why had she never mentioned them? Sure, she had no reason to share every bit of her past, but having a gaggle of older brothers seemed like an unnecessary thing to omit. Information started coming in rapidly, then, mostly names. The name the brothers used for her, Anya, almost slipped by them. Almost.

Unsurprisingly, Salem was quick to jump on that. "Just because you know of an alternate name, doesn't mean you automatically get license to use that name." They muttered, knowing with certainty that they wouldn't want him calling them Scott. He couldn't imagine it would be any different for her. "You can get drinks, Paige still can't." They wouldn't encroach on just anyone's drinking habits here, not unless they were really worried about the detrimental affect and cared for  the person abusing it. Like Paige and Louie.

They turned back to her. "I guess my first question would be whether or not you want me to get rid of them." Maybe their tone was arrogant; frankly they didn't care. This was their domain, they controlled who got to stay and who had to leave.
