DON'T NEED A GUN | JOINING
« on: February 06, 2020, 01:33:18 AM »
”Where the fuck is the goddamn port?”

You’d think it’d be easy to find, but this is the third time he’s ended up in the wrong place. It must be his wacky sense of direction, or the fact that while that girl was giving him directions, he was staring at her tits and hallucinating. That, or Northstar has managed to hide themselves so well that even old Zachariah Haberstich, who would consider himself a mix between a hawk and a bloodhound, can’t track them down. To be fair, he’d also be scared. What a monster, that guy.

This might not be Northstar, but Zach thinks it’ll be the next best thing, at least for a day or two. He needs to stop and refuel, find himself more ammo for his damn rifle, and maybe get a new shoe. His foot’s been bleeding nonstop since he lost the boot. What’d he step in, glass? It’s starting to seep through the bandages. He’s leaving a bloody trail.

THAT’S HOW THEY FOUND YOU THE LAST TIME, IDIOT.

He’s never heard of this place. Has the world done some remodeling while he was out? It isn’t like he’d remember either way. The last place he remembers being in is the Badlands, and then, boom … two hazy years later, he finds himself in the middle of nowhere, rifle slung over his shoulders, soaking wet and missing a shoe. He’d had to cut new notches in his belt with a hunting knife, he’d gotten so skinny, but at least he was (for the most part) unharmed. Not a single fresh scar on his body! What a wonder!

Lucky for him, it’s the middle of the day, so when he comes limping in, a thousand necks crack and crane to glare at him. Without a care in the world, Zach waves his free hand, loopy grin on his face, and calls, “Anyone got an extra boot? Lost mine.”

Selena Felix
She likes to think she's got a pretty good sense of direction. She's gotten pretty good at navigating to and from other groups - Bluestem Prairie, Northstar, the Badlands, and to a lesser extent Flintlock - as well as her family's estate. It's a necessity for someone like her, someone that can't stand sitting still and wants to see as many people and places as possible, be involved in as much as possible.

It's getting harder these days though, being seven months pregnant and all. So mostly she stays in Los Santos with occasional trips to Bluestem. Even getting around Los Santos itself was becoming less fun, though Sel was nothing if not stubborn and persistent. She wasn't going to let a little thing like creating life stop her from living hers... mostly. She'd given up anything that might actually harm the baby, and  though it wasn't easy, she was managing.

The man that had turned up in Los Santos was in bad shape. He was leaving a trail behind him, coming from brown and red bandages covering one foot. Yikes, she'd hate to see what state his foot was in. "I do but I don't think they're your size." The woman cooed, tilting her head to the side. That was another weird thing about pregnancy. Her feet were bigger now. "I'm sure we can find something, though."

Ah! A pretty woman! Zach hasn’t seen one of those in a while. They’re an endangered species, he should like to think. In his defense, he hasn’t seen much of anyone in a long, long time. The few odd people he interacted with he either has no memory of, or specifically recalls to be butt-ugly. So, when he sees Selena, of course the first thing he has to do is get all sleazy.

Though, leaning in … it’s hard to miss the giant belly. Zach raises his brows. “Jesus H. Christ, who’s the father, a horse?” Why’s it so big? This poor, poor woman. He’s glad he can’t get pregnant.

Seemingly oblivious to the offense she may take to his statement, the man straightens out, brushing dirt from his tattered clothes, and proudly declares, “I’m fuckin’ lost.”

From the looks of it, it would appear he’s ended up … in the Badlands? It’s been quite a while since he’s been here. Two years, he thinks, putting a hand over his eyes to squint and scan the horizon. Where’s the ocean? Then, it dawns on him. Is that Charlie he’s looking at? No way.

Charlie? he asks, incredulous. “Is that you? You’ve shrunk! And you’re a woman now! Well, ain’t no shame in that, I’ll support you no matter what … where’d the ocean go? Global warming sure did a number on this place. Y’know, my daddy always said that shit was a load of crap, but I’m startin’ to think he was wrong. Shit’s dried up!”

It does not occur to dear old Zachariah that he is not, in fact, in the Badlands, and this is not Charlie post-transition. “... damn, my foot hurts.”

Selena Felix
Pretending that she wasn't vain was like pretending she wasn't a brunette. She could find all sorts of arguments, but the evidence was plain to see. No one worked that hard at maintaining her beauty without at least a little vanity, and Sel... had plenty.

She might not know exactly who the father is, but she could rule out a horse pretty confidently. "No, it's not." Unless this was Mateo's baby and he was part horse. "No kidding."

Then the man goes on a very bizarre tangent and she can't help but wonder if another drunkard has turned up at her door. "What?" It took her a few moments to realize what he was on about. She might not have met Charlie, but she knew of him. Did he think this was the Badlands? Really? Did she honestly think that a biological man could transition and get pregnant in the apocalypse? Not to mention become biracial. He was white, right? Charlie Luciano? Yeah, he was white. "I'm Selena Felix, Lady of Los Santos. Which is where you are, not the Badlands."

Well, she didn’t deny anything … maybe she’s not out. Zach holds a finger to his lips and silently promises to keep her secret.

“Los Santos?” he repeats, wracking his brain to try and figure out what language that is—French? Spanish? German? “... lo siento, no hablo espanol. O frances. … pues, hablo un poco espanol. No es muy bueno.” Hopefully they don’t all speak French here and not Spanish. What an embarrassing mistake to make. Zach barely speaks Spanish as it is—his time down south had not been enough to fully immerse himself in the language, unfortunately, though he could probably still ask where the bathroom was without stumbling over his words. (Not that he would ever need to ask. There are plenty of bushes around, right?)

“So this isn’t the Badlands? Good, I didn’t want to be there anyways. If I have to see Hilbert Samsa’s stupid fucking face ever again I think I’d shoot myself in the head.” That last part is clearly laced with venom and hurt. Someone’s not over their ex. “Fucker looked like a rat, anyways. A—A rat in a human skinsuit. I always though that’s what he was. I kept looking for the zipper. Looked all over his damn body, never found one, but I know he’s gotta take the suit off to breathe somehow.

STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM. HE’LL HEAR YOU.

“Aaaanyways.” Zach readjusts the strap of his rifle, shifting his weight from his bloody, bandaged foot to the other. “I was looking for Northstar—was planning on shootin’ the place up, yeah? Got a bone to pick with those fuckers, harboring a criminal! Chick shoots me in the stomach and runs off, and then has the nerve to go hide in the jungle—port—wherever the fuck they are now.”

He’s not sure how far Northstar is, anyways. It could be across the country, or it could be a day’s worth of walking away. Either way, Zach is tired, and hungry, and in need of a new shoe. He will save his murderous revenge rampage for another day, as long as this Selena Felix will step aside so he can go nap in an alley somewhere, maybe root around in the dumpsters for a new shoe.

“I’m tired,” he says. “Think you’ve got somewhere for me to sleep?”

Selena Felix
She wasn't trans, but she was bisexual. She'd never spent a day in the closet, realizing from a young age that girls were just as pretty as boys were, and she'd never felt like hiding that opinion. She raises an eyebrow, not sure why he's silently promising to keep a secret, considering there's no secret to keep.

He didn't speak Spanish, or French... actually, he spoke a little Spanish. She rolled her eyes and smiled. "Muy bien, no hablaré español." Aside from that contradictory statement, of course.

Zach proceeded to ramble out an incoherent story about the Badlands and someone named Hilbert that she couldn't really follow, but tried to memorize anyway. You never knew when this information would be helpful. She blinked when he moved on to Northstar, specifically his threat about shooting it up. Absolutely not. Mateo was there, and there was no way she was going to let anyone - be it this guy, Brock, or some vengeful Prairie person - hurt him.

"There sure is." She purred, turning and heading towards the hotel. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer, right? "Follow me."
