STIGMATA [joining]
« on: July 30, 2020, 06:06:54 PM »
//tw for human and animal injury and death/murder

His job took him many places, some that were memorable for their strange inhabitants, or were as forgettable as the next small settlement. Some he enjoyed, particularly the ones that were occupied with folks that kept to themselves and stayed out of his business. In others people were far too nosy. He was a private man, a working man, there for the job and maybe some food and rest. Every once in a while he found somewhere that he'd like to return to someday, but never somewhere that he would stay.

It wasn't that he craved adventure or couldn't sit still. He was just a righteous workaholic that followed the destruction of monsters. It was the only thing that made him feel like his life had any purpose, and he couldn't fathom stopping until his heart was done too.

His work had been given many names. He was a bounty hunter, hunting down those that wronged others in horrific ways. He was a cop, enforcing laws of old that really shouldn't be obsolete anymore. He was a vigilante, needing no payment if it meant a vile person was brought down, working with no real legal framework. He didn't care what they called him, a job was a job and there was always more evil out there.

Today's job brought him to Flintlock Lodge. Or it was, since he was still working on summiting the mountain. The horse that he had purchased for the journey was slowing down, getting tired. Maybe if he'd decided to stop, this would have been avoided, but maybe that rock was always going to come loose.

The horse fell, and it fell hard. Danny too, came crashing to the ground, narrowly avoiding getting pinned under the animal. The impact of his shoulder hitting the ground sent pain screaming from his shoulder down his arm. "Fuck!" He grabbed at his shoulder, took a few seconds to calm down and assess. It hurt, but it was the only thing, and it didn't seem broken.

His eyes turned to the horse, laying on the ground, one of its legs bent at a strange angle. He'd never claim to be good with animals or know about horses, but it didn't take a genius to know that that horse wasn't getting back up again. He closed his eyes and groaned, then stood up and crossed over to the panting animal.

"I'm sorry." He said, crouching down in front of it. "For everything." Bringing it here, not stopping. He was an apathetic person, but he hated to see a life wasted. Especially an undeserving one.

Thanks to the mountains, the sound of the gunshot could be heard for miles.

//ok ye he's gonna keep going on foot so by the time a patrol finds him he's gonna be a ways away from the horse
/also this is really bad but it's a bit rushed and he's terrible so. there we go

It was nap time, so Blake was out patrolling while leaving the kids in the capable hands of the lodge and their family. And of course, she had heard the gunshots and after mentioning it into the walkie talkie, the Australian headed out ot go see who in the hell just shot a gun off. Though coming across someone not part of the lodge wasn't exactly what she was expecting.

"How fuckin' stupid are you?" she asked, crossing her arms over her chest as she stood a small distance from the taller man. She didn't feel like shooting an arrow into anyone's chest today, so using her words was...sadly what Danny would have to deal with. "I really hope you're lookin' for Flintlock, because whether you are or not you're going to be with that grand entrance." She glanced to the dead animal, but didn't seem phased by it or if she was she didn't let it show.

— I like to think Blake is a good example of the whole "strong, independent woman" thing even if she doesn't identify as a woman. She has a short temper and what I gently put as homicidal tendencies. She will gladly fight someone, regardless if they're bigger than her or not. However, she's also rather maternal and is more likely to protect a child than anything. Her maternal side has massively shown itself since the twins were born, though that leaves her more violent side to be overlooked or forgotten.

rich had seen a lot in his lifetime, arguably more than most others would ever get the chance to. the man had seen it all at this point; from scenic views to less-than-ideal living conditions, he had experienced just about every walk of life. it wasn’t that rich craved adventure much himself; he simply didn’t have a choice at this point. he couldn’t say he enjoyed it either, yet it still remained as something he accepted as his new normal nowadays.

everything around richard felt short-lived. temporary. he couldn’t say flintlock would be any different. though it was in this group where he started to find he had more of a purpose than constantly running from his enemies and all the people his family had wronged in the past. short-lived as it was, it felt nice to have a job, a role to fill the long-emptied spaces.

outside near the village, going about his day, his head lifted up at the sound of a gunshot. for a moment, he figured this was it. this was when his past came back to bite him in the ass; this was when he would have to leave this place where he sought refuge. a few moments passed before richard reluctantly headed towards the distant sound.

it took a while, but blake had seemed to have beaten him to it. a man, alone and on his own. he seemed to have distanced himself before the patrol could catch up to him, to see what - or who - he had spent that bullet on. rich didn't care to truly find out. blinking, rich crossed his arms and took a deep breath. choosing to give a more cooled down introduction, he plainly stated, “we could hear that gunshot for miles, around here." a gentle pry, as if seeing if the man would explain what the gunshot had been for.

glancing shortly between blake and the newcomer, he shifted his weight before he introduced himself. "the name's richard. welcome to flintlock. what brings you here?"

Nothing was permanent; seeking permanence was a pointless quest of delusion. Places would lose their magic, people would leave or die, the laugh you fell in love with would turn hollow, and war would always come back to threaten peace. Maybe that was the one permanent truth; humans would have the conflicting desire for war yet want the violence to end. But then, all it took for someone to want peace was to lose someone close to them to want peace, was it not?

That was part of why he kept no one close, not even his children or their mothers. He couldn't afford to want peace. Blood always seemed to follow him (as much as he followed it), one way or another. Besides, in his line of business he made a lot of enemies. People knowing about Mercedes and Cade would just lead to them getting hurt. He was distant, absent even, but it was better than the alternative.

He was surprised to be greeted by a familiar redhead blocking the path ahead. Blond eyebrow raised, he looked at her. "I assume that's rhetorical." He deadpanned. "Not Flintlock exactly, but I'll take it." He was looking for a killer. But maybe the killer would be there. Even if he wasn't, it would be a good place to rest up and maybe get a new horse.

A man joined them, making a comment in place of a question. Unfortunately for Richard, Danny was not a very forthright person. "Mm, it was so loud I'm surprised I can still hear." Helpful. He glanced around, trying to spot any other Lodgers that might be hiding in the wings. "A body." He glanced from Richard to Blake.

//I'm just having him chase after an npc murderer but if anyone would like to plot smth, hmu!

"Sure, let's say that" she replied with a shrug, crossing her arms before letting a smirk sneak onto her face "Good to see you too, Danny" she knew he never stayed around for long, so hearing he wasn't necessarily looking for Flintlock certainly caught her attention. She didn't know the full extent of his work, but she did know it kept him away a lot. Regardless, there was something comforting in seeing a familiar face, especially his.

She looked over as Richard appeared and spoke, making a comment about the gunshot only for Danny to make his own comment. Though the mention of a body got her attention "Who's?" they still never found out if Hayley was dead or not and she knew there had been some search for a girl Alfie was involved with. But regardless she was definitely invested about this body that was apparently found.
