TAKE IT EASY FOR A LITTLE WHILE [return]

They hadn't meant to be away for quite this long, but their respite had been too enjoyable to want to leave quickly; Gav's clinginess hadn't helped matters either. But now Cat was back, doing what Cat did... lurking on the rooftops, watching everything that was going on below. They were back in their typical garb, today wearing the jacket they'd made recently - the one with Cruor written across the back.

It had rained recently, so the tiles were just a bit slick beneath their feet. At first they hadn't worried, just put a bit of extra care into where they stepped. It wasn't like it was their first time doing something like this in these conditions. But then their foot slid and they nearly fell to the ground, only saving themself by throwing themself down onto the roof. "Alright, dumbass, time to get the fug down." They muttered, shifting around so they could look for the nearest, safest exit.

(They weren't going to push it with Fate.)

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.

⇥ 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.

guess the badlands hadn’t gone up in complete flames while cat was gone. guess anyone could be grateful enough for that - especially addy, who knew he would’ve been fuckin’ blamed for it if it happened. it wasn’t like he would ever tell cat that he missed them in any way, shape, or form - because in his mind he hadn’t really missed them all that much. however… having catalyst around… it made things a lot more eventful, enjoyable.

aside from watching the dumbass nearly eat shit on top of a roof. he squinted as he watched the leader look around for the nearest place to get off the roof. “the fuck is wrong with you?” he felt like he was justified in asking them that, at the very least. it wasn’t even much worry for the leader - they’d gotten themselves in this situation, not addy’s reason to be worried - but just pure, genuine wonder at this point.

Were they someone that could be genuinely missed? Certainly the absence of their presence would be felt, but if and when they left and life continued, would people think to themselves... "I sure wish Cat was here." They didn't think so. Maybe Creed would, but other than that? They doubted it. Aside from their family, anyway, their family loved them and had stuck with them through thick and thin. They hadn't really understood why people placed such significance on family until recently, when it became whole and they saw the lengths everyone had gone to, or would go to. It was life changing.

Ah, Addy. Whenever they left or had their destiny once again seized by Fate, they didn't think he'd actually miss them. The ex god that had betrayed his trust... somehow. No, they didn't even think he'd so much as wish for their wisdom in terms of leading. He had it, despite everything that had happened between them personally, they knew he had it. "Everything except the way I dress." Cat declared, pushing up to their feet once more, though this time they stayed a bit lower and didn't straighten up all the way. "You didn't see that."

he couldn’t help but glance at the leader’s jacket, vaguely recognizing it. “really? that’s where you draw the line?” the boss having ‘cruor’ on their jacket would be no different than if they had fuckin’- dos equis written there instead (maybe he should suggest that for their next idea). no real venom in the words, though, but addy felt like it would be somewhat justified. it was a relatively slow week or so without them around, but it had still been a while since they talked about whatever shit that happened. the redhead hated it; having to leave shit hanging in the balance while the both of them went to focus on other shit. it made it hard as hell to bring it back up.

“whatever. just- get the fuck down.” admittedly the last thing he wanted - even while he didn’t feel like they were on good terms at the moment - would be for catalyst to fall from the top of a fucking roof and get hurt. addy might have accepted the position as second in command, but there was no way in hell did he feel he was ready to lead this damn place on his own yet. that, and he didn’t want to imagine the headache of explaining he watched their dumbass leader fall to his death while casually strolling along a rooftop.

//tw for a joke about death and getting eaten by birds

A small smile appeared on their lips at the comment, and they nodded. "Once a month I like to remind myself that I ain't shit. I have to because I spend the rest of the month talking myself up. You know how it goes." They did no such thing; for someone who used to be regarded as a god, their ego was relatively well controlled. It didn't fill up every room that they walked into - most of the time. Sometimes it did and yes, around those times they needed to remind themself that they were just a dumbass with power.

Almost breaking their neck was one way to do that. Not one they had intended, but that just made it more effective. "Oh good idea, I was thinking I'd just stay up here until I died and the birds ate me, but I should probably not do that. Good call." They inched their way over to the edge of the roof, sticking their head over to make sure that there was indeed a balcony below. Yep. Hopefully this wasn't some poor sod's house they were about to trample through.

They dropped down to the balcony and stood up, dusting themself off before trying the sliding door. Oh motherfucker.
