JUST LIGHT ONE FIRE [MEETING]
« on: July 27, 2019, 07:26:58 PM »

Another, mostly quiet week had gone by. Not without its developments; Paige's brothers had arrived and Salem was starting up his plan for vengeance, which meant this would surely just be a quick meeting. Eh, that was fine, they didn't need to spend all live long fucking day at this, did they? "Meeting time." They called, jogging up the steps of the casino before heading inside, taking up their usual spot.

Spoiler: IF YOU DONT KNOW NOW YOU KNOW && INFO && 07/25/19 • show
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
⇥ 07/16/39 ⇥ Saw their parents announce their vow renewal
⇥ 07/14/39 ⇥ Attended Blake and Eddie's wedding
⇥ 06/26/39 ⇥ Led a raid on the Insurrection

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

— there really wasn't too much addy figured would be mentioned in this meeting. still, as catalyst went jogging up the casino steps, addy still couldn't help but wonder what the hell was going to be talked about. paige's relatives that had stopped by, joined? ... salem's plans? was that even something catalyst would talk about? he contemplated that as he wandered closer to the casino. strolling up the steps, hands shoved in his pants pockets, he glanced around before finding a place to settle down at his usual spot.

Just Addy, huh? At least they could always count on him. Sort of weird, if you'd asked Cat when they first met him if they thought he'd become their sort of right hand, the answer would have been a flat no. But they were getting ahead of themself; there was an order to this, and they weren't feeling chaotic enough at the moment to want to rearrange things.

"So we've got a whole ass fugging laundry list of Paige's half brothers that joined, so welcome to... Zepheniah, Dimitri, Malachi, Nicodemus and Aleksandr. Jesus fucking Christ." They thought that would be the end of it, but no, Paige piped up. "Zephaniah. Get it fucking right." They rolled their eyes. "Zephaniah. Happy?" Before she could reply, though, they were moving on.

"Alright, so there's the matter of Salem. Can't say I trust him much farther than I can throw him, but I'd be a fugging idiotic asshole to ignore what he's done. He meets all the good marks, aside from that trust factor, so I'd like to give him a bandanna and a promotion to Officer." Maybe that wasn't the most glowing endorsement, but considering how infrequently they gave any sort of recognition?

But that wasn't all, oh no. "Lastly, I'd like to promote Addy to Second in Command. Don't get any ideas about offing me now that you're definitively the next in line." As if it would have been anyone else even without the promotion. They were joking about him offing them, of course; they weren't too worried about that happening. Hmm, maybe they should be - fucking paranoia. Fuck off with that. "Oh, and since I've consistently been forgetting to, Addy you also get the Enforcer title."

"If I said your name, form a line over here. I got shit for all of you." Necklaces and bandannas, that sort of thing. Earrings and handcuffs too, in Addy's case.

OOC Summary:
— Welcome to Zephaniah, Dimitri, Malachi, Nicodemus and Aleksandr, all played by Noccy
— Salem gets the bandanna and a promotion to Officer
— Addy is promoted to Second In Command and the Enforcer title
— My muse fucking died at the end of this one wow but I got it done

— paige’s brothers. it was enough for the smallest ghost of a smile to come to his lips because catalyst couldn’t pronounce them- but also as they said, jesus fucking christ who the hell named their kids those longass names? it was only a ghost of a smile, and probably the only time he’d admit to catalyst amusing the fuck out of him --

and, shit, he was getting promoted to second in command.

for a moment he didn’t even fully know how to react. how do you react to getting told you’re basically the leader’s right-hand man? catalyst’s oh-so-clever line was sure to briefly throw him back on the rail of defensive, shooting a remark under his breath (that shouldn’t be taken too seriously) along the lines of, “if i really wanted to i would’ve done it by now.” and, he hated himself because it made him think of lucerne’s fucked-up humor and response to everything --

he lifted his head to look at them, and perhaps the nicest thing he ever said in his entire time at the badlands; “i’m honored. thank you.” let the whole world fucking look in shock at him actually being a decent person for once. … as second in command did he have to start being a more decent person? fuck. let's hope not.

he filed into line, eyeing all of the stuff that catalyst had out. only when it was his turn did he glance at catalyst, the earrings, and then back to cat again. “those aren’t for me, are they?” a pause. “does it look like i want holes in my fuckin’ ears?”

//this dumb bitch finally replied

His retort to their joke brought what was almost a good natured half smile to their face. "Uh huh. Keep telling yourself that." They knew. They knew. If he had wanted to off them, he'd have had plenty of chances to. Now, doing so would end quite badly for him considering how many people here were decidedly loyal to Cat (half the fucking group is made up of their family), but theoretically he could have done it.

"They are." They said, turning the spiked studs over in their hand. "Really, that's where you draw the line? Fugging earrings?" Cat rolled their eyes.

— he shook his head, a half-smile coming to his face that mirrored catalyst’s own. there hadn’t been a chance that addy would’ve hurt catalyst. they got along fairly well, he liked to think. if there was anyone in this goddamn group that he somehow managed to trust, they had been one of the select few. not that he’d ever give them the satisfaction in knowing that (even while he was fairly certain that catalyst knew that much).

he glanced between the studs, then catalyst, then back to the earrings again before he begrudgingly took them- taking the handcuffs and swapping bandannas a lot more willingly. guess he’d have to get these damn holes in his ears. he’d see how that went.

//Salem: strolls up fashionably late w/ expired Starbucks

"Fuck can you- someone fill me in, what did they say?" Okay, so he was late. He may have missed the meeting entirely. And he might've slipped through the doors and started prodding people and asking what'd happened while they all looked at him funny; their expressions were mixtures of amusement and a hint of fear.

Weird, he hadn't evoked fear purposefully for a while.

Well after his and Cat's... Conversation, he'd decided to take a little nap and get all those clamoring emotions out of his head, and a small nap turned into a large nap and now he had no idea what was happening but he got shoved up towards where Cat and Addy were currently talking.

"Oh, that one's... Mine? Thanks, cap." Salem said, taking the bandanna as graciously as he could with an award-winning smile which hadn't actually won any awards. "Blue, I like it, really lovin' the blue." He chuckled, pushing back his hair and tying the bandanna around his head absentmindedly; it'd keep the sun off his head, which would be great since Shire took his fucking hat.

What was no doubt an infuriating smirk made its way onto Cat's face as Addy took the studs. "If you need help piercing your ears, lemme know." They paused for a moment, then added: "or want it, I guess." They doubted the red head would admit to needing help unless the situation was truly dire.

Naturally, Salem was late, but what-fucking-ever. It was his problem if he missed his promotion, not theirs. Well, he wasn't quite that late. "Yeah, it's yours. Congradu-fuggin-lations." They couldn't say they trusted him entirely, but if he'd gotten not only a bandanna but a promotion as well, he'd done something right. Oh, he liked the color. Cool. "Great." Their own bandanna was black and white, because obviously they couldn't have anything that clashed with their style.
