i am cold [TALENT SHOW]
« on: November 29, 2019, 05:22:20 PM »
Right, they were supposed to be doing an event. After a bit of back and forth with Salem, they'd decided on doing a talent show. There was a lot less logistical planning for that than their other big consideration, a gladiator tournament. Maybe next time. So they'd cleared space in the casino (or more accurately, gotten some worms to do so), setting up a makeshift stage, table, and seating.

Right now the stage was occupied by Cat, and Salem was sitting at the table, with various other Badlanders in the seats. During the brief dress rehearsal the Boss and Councilman had, Salem had critiqued Cat for not being an interesting enough host. For not having enough pizzazz. Well, they'd come prepared this time.

"Alrightie, ladies, gentlmen, and all of you that are neither gentle nor man, welcome to the Badlands talent show. Rules are simple, you get up here, perform a talent, Salem gives you a rating, you get off so the next person can go." They made gestures as they talked, pointing at the audience, the stage, Salem, back to the audience. They might not be boring, but there wasn't very much showmanship.

"Laaameee!" Salem called, looking about ready to throw their drink at them.

A small smile curled around their lips. Just what they'd been waiting for. They'd been standing on the far end of the stage, away from the former pirate captain, and now they practically bounded over towards him, slipping a hand into their pocket, into a plastic bag inside, and coming back out with a hand full of glitter that was thrown directly at Salem. "My name's Cat and my talent is pissing everyone off!"

With that they got off the stage and took a seat in the front row, the only rating Salem offering being a middle finger.

//ok so we're doing a talent show! how it works is pretty simple, post your character going up and performing their talent (keeping that to one post so everyone will get a chance), or just spectating the event! no need to wait for me or Darky to post between acts. Also, it's important to note that Salem's ratings will be totally arbitrary

Twenty-two ⇥ Born 11/27/17 ⇥ Sagittarius ⇥ Real time aging

RECENT EVENTS   done my time and served my sentence
⇥ 11/27/39 ⇥ Celebrated their twenty-second birthday
⇥ 11/12/39 ⇥ Made their return to public life in the Badlands
⇥ 11/07/39 ⇥ Took a break to recover from their illness
⇥ 11/02/39 ⇥ Came down with a cold

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 biological siblings
⇥ Adopted parent of Molly Valentina Darrow-Lupei (Mo)

⇥ No kill/capture/maim without permission

"Motherfucker, this is gonna be impossible to wash out!" Salem spat vitriol at Cat for their display of being a giant goddamn asshole and throwing glitter directly into his face, coating him and making him look like a damn male entertainer.

He was now in a terrible mood, but he bit his lip and sputtered when he tasted glitter. When he was done coughing, he waved one hand. "Alright, Cat gets a fucking zero. Next person is up, you can't possibly do worse than that."

//Ratings will be from 0-10, based off of showmanship, effort exerted and how much Salem ICly enjoys them. Whoever has the most impressive act according to Salem will get a small in-universe prize at the end!
I feel the unbearable weight, &
I sense the ripping of my shame, &
I hear the sigh of indifference &
