CAN'T DEAL WITH THE COME DOWN [MEETING]
« on: November 29, 2019, 03:50:59 PM »
It had been an... eventful week, that was for fucking sure. Some of the events were good, some were... quite the opposite. But life had to go on in the Badlands, and that meant delivering a meeting. So Cat made their way up the steps to the casino, cleaned since the last time, and dropped the cardboard box down onto their usual billiard table. There were actually a couple of people playing at that moment, but a look from Cat was enough to make them back off. "Meeting."

And here was Mike. Again in the casino, out and about. Being around more people than just himself was proving very different. And even after breaking his month long silence. He was still quiet and talked as seldom as possible. This occasion. Being a meeting. Was just another silent appearance from Mike.

While he and Cat had not always gotten on, Mike believed there was at least a little mutual respect there.
MICHAEL FORD
Michael Ford is a 45 year old, man, he's stubbornly loyal to whatever cause he chooses, protective of his family and friends, he's a grunt in the Badlands. Michael has issues controlling his anger in most situations. He is a difficult opponent and well trained, feel free to power play nonviolent interactions though.

Life indeed must go on, despite the tragedies. Despite the fact Salem was still- well, upset over some recent events. But he still showed up like a good little Councilman when Cat called the meeting, and tried his best to pay attention this time.

Might as well start off with the good news first, right? And despite the departure of Addy and Lucerne, there was quite a bit of good news. "First of all, welcome to Iiniwa. At the end of the meeting you'll get a necklace that signifies you're one of us," a dry chuckle left their lips. "Congratulations on joining the bandits." Every now and then, someone would present a new word that could apply to the Badlands, and every time Cat was surprised.

"In other news, those events I promised did happen, on time if not pushed a little bit. Mike put together a remarkable Thanksgiving feast, and Salem and I orchestrated a talent show. About what you'd expect from us, I'd imagine." Mike, inventive and the good chef he was, had put together a huge meal without a hitch. Meanwhile, Cat and Salem were predictably chaotic.

They paused, looking at one audience member in particular before turning their face towards the ceiling. I better not regret this. There was plenty of evidence that they wouldn't, but with this man, there was still the distinct possibility. "One last thing before the bad news. Mike, I'd like you to step up to Officer again."

They paused just for a moment to hear his response, and then they were charging on ahead. "As you've all probably noticed, Addy and Lucerne left. I don't know where they went or why they left, just that they're gone. They'll be missed, but it probably goes without saying that they no longer hold their ranks." Whatever this was that they were feeling, they refused to acknowledge it or define it. Above all else they refused to show it, though the hard lines in their face probably said enough.

And just like that, they snapped out of it. "Right, Mike, Iiniwa, get up here." They turned to the cardboard box, rooting around it for a blue bandanna and a necklace for the respective men.

OOC Summary:
— Welcome to Iiniwa/Cosmyn!
— We had two events this past week, a Thanksgiving Dinner hosted by Mike and a Talent Show hosted by Cat and Salem!
— Mike is promoted to Officer
— Addy and Lucerne stepped down and left. I know I've already said this, but I'm really grateful for everything both Elysian and Truce did, and it's hard to put my appreciation into words. Thanks for everything, wishing you guys and them well.

It would be truthful to say that Mike was surprised by the promotion just bestowed upon him by Cat. It was strange to think that in his month or so back he’d gained some semblance of... he wouldn’t call it trust exactly, though if not that then what.

Mike frowned slightly, not sure what to say as Cat beaconed himself and Iiniwa to approach. He could always pole it’ll decline. Who was he to enforce rules that (some of which) he had so blatantly broken or ignored.

Any disagreement died in his mind though as he reasoned to himself that this was a chance to start fresh. To atone for some of his many... many mistakes. "Thanks boss. I won’t disappoint." Could he fulfill this... all but promise? He fully intended to.
