Delivery: Sonrisa

[The painting comes on Thursday, framed beautifully in an antique frame. It's wrapped in simple brown paper with a tag indicating that it's from Louis. A gift for Joey, a thoughtful little notion that was perhaps found in the antique store's inventory.

But there's something else about the painting, something that doesn't become apparent until later. Touching the painting, being in its presence... it can really get to a person. There's anger in it, fury and all those black, fiery emotions, wrapped up inside it. It's not easily pinpointed, this painting being the source, but there's negative energy in it that rubs off on those around it. Tempers flare, fury builds. How it affects a person cannot be told. Some may not be affected at all, while others may simply find themselves in a blind rage over the smallest of issues.]

It's never reassuring when the doctors don't have answers for you.

Delivery: Sam A

[A box comes delivered to Sam on Wednesday afternoon. It's nothing special, that box, just the sort you can pick up for free at the post office to post things in. Inside, wrapped in newspaper, are a pair of arm warmers made out of some familiar yarn. A notecard comes with, simple and white.

It's been a while, hasn't it?

I hope that the stains came out of the floor. And the wall. I'd say I'm sorry, but I believe we're all a bit past that point, aren't we?

Anyways. I've missed you. And Cris. And... Joey, is it?

She's adorable, by the way. Absolutely precious.

All my love,

There's no return address on the card, nothing to speak of where it might have been posted from.

Just a box from someone who shouldn't have been there.]

[After this, and after a fair bit of poking about belowstairs.]

I believe Rory's been taken by some entity within the facility, and we've no notion where he is now. Do be careful. We're dwindling. Bossman has no interest in assisting us, but we're not to leave this place. Remain far from the flower shop. The demon hunters lurk there yet, and I'm of a mind to give them a grand explosion before they circle me and cast me out.

[Once this goes up on the flower shop, after this.]

We've trouble only slightly. Is the bossman gone entirely?
[If not, he can see this, of course.]

[After this.]

I know I saw him. He was here, just outside.

I know it was him. I know it.

But I can't-

He's got to be around here somewhere.

Has anyone else seen him? Tall? He was wearing a dark suit. And he's got an accent... Scottish. Impossible to miss.

[After this.]

To be safe, let's get laptops, iPads, etc., out of the B&B before midnight Friday. Would be dangerous if everything exploded at once. To make it easier, bring your machines to the back. Will have a safe place for them, and will have beer and BBQ on. Late night feast. If it's a false alarm, like 1999, we all eat free then sleep. Sound good?

Aug. 1st, 2016




would anyone be in favor of entertainment a little more salubrious than music & art and a little less soul-baring in nature? celebration of summer, albeit a little late, with barbeque and music, perhaps a less-than-hostile takeover of the green?

Jul. 23rd, 2016




I still like the way the word sounds.

[Public anonymously]

We discussed the worthiness of art and people. You were also soaking wet. Still alive?


How was the party? I think we can call it that, it wasn't a bloody art show.


I've been told to ask you to paint the skirtings multi-colors.

[B and B]

Tell me there's a magical hangover cure in circulation.




I need to know for the payroll if you're still here and in one piece.

How'd it go, compay?

[Separate locks: Jason W, Gwen R, Hunter R, Billy K, Oliver K, Perry P]
I gotta feeling there was no ID checking happening at that party. How'd it go?

[Locked to Daniel W]
You have a good time, gringo?

[Locked to Etain S]
You make it to the party, chica?

[Locked to Manning T]
Hey, brother.

Caleb's going to be taking over while Connie's away. Need anything, he's your man. Someone make sure they feed her dog.


Cris M, Sam A

[Locked individually to each.]

Thank you for having breakfast with me the other day. I'm sorry I ran away like I did.

It was a pleasure to meet you.

What's fun around here at night that isn't illegal?




Given in yet?

[B&B: Pancake Breakfast Sunday Morning Open to ALL B&Bers]

[While the B&B tended to be as casual and laid back and humanly possible (perfect for those on the verge of death or even past the marker line), she liked taking on the epic task that was SUNDAY PANCAKE BREAKFAST. It was epic because more people than who actually stayed at the B&B tended to show up before church or mass or after the bar and it was always impossible to tell how many pancakes she could manage to make. Sometimes she got lucky and one of the Lions from the church would help her out in the kitchen, but now she had Felicity to keep an eye on the place while she cooked and that was all she really needed.

Why? Because Connie could twist time, silly.

She'd close the kitchen doors, fly through stacks of pancakes, plates of bacon, eggs, glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice and have it all ready before Jimmy from room whatever needed a second helping.

It was 9am, which was an hour into service and things were really cooking up. The main eating area (she really needed to figure out the fancy name for that) was full of hot plates and food casket warmers (also probably not the right name) to puts eggs and bacon in. Guests were sitting around tables and some even took their food to the porch or back up to their rooms. Everyone was in high spirits, even the ghosts!

Connie burst through the kitchen doors with two plates of pancakes and did a little jig.] Whoooooo's hungry? Or hangry? Hangries get fed first. [She did a few nodding motions towards the red head known as Felicity for help carrying the plates.]
