Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

" A curse such as lyncanthropy is threaded throughout a being's entire DNA. Removing it would kill him, or even attempting as much. But surely risking the life of one man is preferable to knowingly sending an entire village of innocent men, women and children to the jaws of a starving beast simply t...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

-- Three Weeks Later -- [/size][/i] Roselyn sat in her office chair, hands cupping the sides of her face. Her hair was brushed, but the mess that had accumulated was barely visible below the surface. Her eyes were bloodshot, dark rings hidden beneath what manner of make-up she'd mustered. All in al...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

" So he didn't have this problem until after Visgoth? It was something that had been done to him? Visgoth, Argast.. they somehow unchained the beast inside of him ," she thought aloud. " Perhaps tortured him until it went insane ." She found her arms crossing again, one foot propped back up against ...

" Tell me everything you can. What happened to him to cause this change, what we can do to fix it, what it means going forward. Everything. I need to know what you've gotten me in to ." Roselyn breathed deep. This was going to be a long story. " I met Alexander in the first decade after he'd been tu...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

No sooner had Eris latched the final clamp onto the wolf's form, the manacles set to work. The barrier holding the wolf in place now sputtering out thanks to its struggles against them, the wolf pushed itself forwards toward the two of them, but chains tightened at its movement. Every move the wolf ...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

Grey was the last thing she saw before her body vanished over the side. A thought crossed her mind as gravity drew her down, that this may be the last time she saw him alive. Just not for the reason she'd think... " You should have notified me of this, before you went running straight in without bac...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

My brain when writing this “ I do. " The ash pile in Grey's heart sparked slightly. He'd worked so long to put out that spark. The spark that had been his greatest shame for centuries. The paths it led him down always ended in pain and betrayal. Still he looked into himself. Stared at the creature ...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

As the plunger sunk and the thick red liquid disappeared into Argast's neck, there was a lull in the space around them. The moon was still hidden, but it's light had begun to peak through the dissipating clouds, now that Argast had put his mind to things other than their manipulation. Grey and Eris ...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

“ You know my side of things .” She passed her parched tongue across her lips. There was the ghost of a touch – searing metal – that lingered on the surface of her skin. “ You know the things you did to me. And the things you made me do .” " Huh, " Argast exhaled, giving a brief head shake. " You st...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

The moment the door swung open, a force like sweeping wind pulled both Eris and Grey within the boundaries of the room. Utilizing a single clawed hand, Grey halted his momentum, stopping himself from being flung to far into the room. Quickly shoving himself to his feet, he swung around prepared to f...

" There's no telling what else may have heard my.. entrance. We should move, quickly ." Grey nodded in agreement before quickly peering into the room the creature had attack him from. The room was much like the others he'd passed in the hall, ultimately unimportant to what they were currently after....

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

Caught between a rock and a hard place, Grey observed the quickly appearing figure of the creature ahead of him and the clanging cacophony above him. His legs, thinking quicker than his mind, quickly shifted himself backwards and the mess of debris and broken pieces of the structure around them came...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

Returning his view to the room, Grey's eyes rolled across the room taking in the contents. A broken desk, a toppled cabinet, shattered glass vials, and long dried blood. He'd been working in town when the building had been abandoned and subsequently condemned, but he'd never heard the details of why...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

" Boost me ?.." Grey took a moment without answering, pointing his ear to the broken corners of the window glass above them. The inside of the building, from what he could hear, was silent; almost too silent. While he expected less than the royal ball, there had to have been something, some kind of ...

" I believe there was a great aunt in my family who was admitted here, once upon a time. " " One would certainly hope not. " Grey responded, his voice trailing off. He'd never seen the inside of an institution such as this one, but they had for centuries, been considered by many, a fate worse than d...

" You follow your nose, and I'll follow you ." " Just try to keep up. " he said with a small head tilt, before turning heeling and launching into a sprint. To say Lycan tracked something's "scent" was a bit misleading. In truth, while their sense of smell was heightened compared to other supernatura...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

She seemed to pick at the back of neck for a moment, perhaps to remove more dried blood which pulled irritatingly at her skin. But there was a thin, faded gold chain that was hidden by her collar, and she hooked it around her finger and tugged it, producing a tarnished oval locket concealed within h...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

Grey stood alert for several moments after the dark shadow had disappeared. The smell, the aura of dread, any and all essence of its existence in the area was gone, but he still waited, paranoia eating at the back of his mind. Eris' words broke his concentration, a final moment of acceptance that th...

Re: London Gothic [BG & Shea] (IC)

Eris darted off to complete her task and, while some individuals first thought to follow her as she left, Grey made sure he was far too big a target to turn their back on. After having flung another combatant across the room, the group realized that blindly charging in one by one would quickly spell...
