I PROMISE [open, announcement]
« on: July 16, 2019, 03:19:12 PM »
Austin and Molly were already married. That was probably more or less common knowledge, right? Nearly two decades apart hadn't been able to shake their loyalty to each other, and their faithfulness was rewarded with their reunion. After so long, their family was whole once more, and even bigger than before with the addition of Paige and Gavril and Mo. Somehow, though, he was pretty sure that he was on the best terms with the baby (aside from Molly, of course).

But this wasn't about anyone but Austin and his wife. Well, he'd had talked to Cat about it and gotten their blessing, but it still wasn't about them. Then talked about it with Molly in private, and now it was time to make the big announcement. The two of them stood in the casino together, Molly looking as excited and happy as the day they'd announced their initial engagement. He probably was too, in all honesty.

He squeezed her hand and looked around. "We've got an announcement to make." He said, barely able to keep his excitement contained. "We're renewing our vows!" Molly blurted, hardly giving people in the casino the chance to turn their head.

They had known that this was coming. Austin had wanted their blessing - for whatever fucking reason, he was already married to her, it wasn't like their refusal would mean that they would get divorced - and they had given it. From then it was only a matter of time, but it had taken so long that they had started to wonder if Molly said no. But looking at them now, so bright and happy, it was abundantly clear to them that they were just waiting for the right moment. "Congratulations? Is that what I'm supposed to say?" They shrugged.

GENERAL   welcome to the end of eras, ice has melted back to life
⇥ Given name is Scott Mathew Darrow ⇥ Goes only by Catalyst or Cat
⇥ Assigned male at birth ⇥ Agender ⇥ They/Them pronouns only
Twenty-one ⇥ Born 11/27/17 ⇥ Sagittarius ⇥ Real time aging
Boss (leader) of the Badlands ⇥ Ex prisoner of the Badlands
⇥ Ex cultist (Mourningstar) ⇥ Ex member of the Young Rogues

RECENT EVENTS   done my time and served my sentence
⇥ 06/26/39 ⇥ Led a raid on the Insurrection
⇥ 06/29/39 ⇥ Reunited with Louie
⇥ 06/26/39 ⇥ Had a talk with their father

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.

RELATIONS   dynasty decapitated, you just might see a ghost tonight
⇥ Molly Darrow x Austin Darrow ⇥ No siblings
⇥ Adopted parent of Molly Valentina Darrow-Lupei (Mo)
Pansexual/Panromantic ⇥ Very much taken ⇥ One Crush
⇥ Not looking but it happened ⇥ Rarely forms romantic attachment
⇥ Holds most people at arms length and doesn't get close

INTERACTION   i'm taking back the c r o w n
Hard physicallyHard mentally ⇥ Doesn't let their guard down
⇥ Is most comfortable with close ranged-weapons ⇥ Dislikes guns
Brass knuckles ⇥ A variety of knives ⇥ Carries a handgun
⇥ Will kill/capture/maim in certain circumstances
⇥ Will leave things be in others ⇥ Will start & finish fights
⇥ No kill/capture/maim without permission
⇥ Attack in bold #0d0d0d and tag @/Bryne
⇥ Peaceful powerplay allowed but they may react negatively
⇥ Dislikes almost any sort of touch unless they initiate or agree to it

I've been defeated I begged for what I needed
I suffered now I'm ready for war

      Lucerne was incapable of love of this kind. People - they tended to make his heart jump, all in the wrong ways. Instead, he was fully committed to impassiveness, self-denying and able to simply turn a blind eye to any sign of romance. He couldn't wed a human being when he was already married to a life of ambition, working on the various little projects which intrigued him. Science, medicine, art and nature - there was a lot more to life than love, he believed. Perhaps some would wonder how Lucerne could be all right with this way of life - it was a lonely man's life - but Lucerne was all right with this. After all, he'd be the very worst lover if he ever did open up to anybody. He was a vile man, but not even he could punish somebody so harshly by providing them with his company.

Austin and Molly were unlike Lucerne. Happy in love. Settled down in a life of domestic bliss. Lucerne frowned when the pair began to make an announcement, turning his head to look over towards the couple. Renewing their vows... Lucerne's gaze shifted around awkwardly, unsure how he was supposed to respond mainly because he'd never been in a situation like this before. ❝ What difference does it make? ❞ Lucerne asked, though it was riddled like a naive curiosity instead of the usual bitterness which often laced his voice. ❝ A wedding is a wedding - would a renewal of vows not mean the exact same thing? ❞

Salem did not like weddings, was something he was quickly finding out. Why should he give two shits if two people were declaring to kiss and fuck each other exclusively for the rest of their lives? It's not like a ceremony was necessary between lifelong friends, so obviously it mainly pertained to the coupley type things.

He'd never been to a wedding before Flintlock's wedding. Sure, back on the ship he could technically marry couples, but nobody was ballsy enough to publicly declare their weakness for another person's company like that.

He was kind of glad the casino hadn't exploded in- praise or whatever. Then he would've felt out of place with bitterness and frustration clouding his thoughts. "Cool, good for you." Salem said, taking a sip of his drink and turning his attention back to the game of cards he'd been engaged in.

— renewing their vows? people actually did that? huh. he thought it was something people just talked about, not something that people actually ended up doing. he glanced between the two of them, unsure how exactly they wanted him to react. it seemed like catalyst had said what addy was thinking, and lucerne seemed stuck on the idea of what difference renewing vows could possibly make. maybe because they’re not dumb shits when it comes to love, bastard.
not that addy ever claimed to be good when it came to love. he was probably just as bad as lucerne. at least he’d been bad enough to fall for someone unable to love him back - that was a pretty dumb move. “congrats,” he ended up saying, unsure what else to say.
