Flashlight tag: Harlow & Shiloh

Who: Shiloh and Harlow
What: A late night game of flashlight tag
Where: Repose Cemetery
When: Nowish
Warnings/Rating: None, but tbd

[After the sun set, after the moon rose, after even the fireflies turned in for the night, and the owls began to hoot at one another from across the tops of their respective trees... after all of that, there she would be.  In the cemetery, second row from the back, and seated on top of one of the more minor headstones like the dead didn't mind.  In these back rows of the cemetery, they might just have been dead way too long to mind anymore, all of the legible dates seemed to be from the turn of the century.  To Harlow's immediate left was a large marble angel with its stoic face downcast in prayer.  There were little stone tears carved on its angelic stone cheeks.  If it wasn't for the casual kicking of her legs, Harlow might have been mistaken as a marble carving herself with her striking, swan-white pallor.

Under club lights, Harlow liked neon, but other than that, she always opted for pastels.  That's how it was tonight.  Tonight, she wore watered down stripes, the sweater sleeves bunched up around her elbows, and sun-lightened denim in a high-waisted style.  She had on baby blue tennis shoes with stacked foam heels that gave her a few extra inches of height, and her bubblegum hair was down in loose waves around her narrow shoulders.  She scuffed the heel of one shoe against long dead granite and waited on adventure to arrive.]

Mal R

[Note left for Mal R]
[After moving in above the electronics store, there's a note left on the door of Mal's shop before it opens. He knows he'll be caught on whatever advanced surveillance Mal has going on, and he looks around for it and waves jovially in every direction after leaving the note:]

Nut more quietly, you beautiful bastard.

[News: Protestant Church]

[The announcement is made without fanfare: Pastor Leo Browning has left the local protestant church. There is no official reason given, but members venturing close to the parsonage in the wee hours tell tales of late night shenanigans. Rumors abound, with so many church members named in the circling rumors that no one seems free from this particular sin. The church promises they'll be sending along an older, married pastor, and Leo Browning is gone from the church as quickly as he arrived, though no one saw him leaving town. But, interestingly, no one from the actual church follows up on the gossip or the missing pastor, and there's word hissing through the congregation that the good ex-pastor has digital proof to keep him safe for as long as he needs.

At the same time, Shiloh Foster, recently of Atlanta, Ga, rents an apartment above a shop off Main.]

[Well after moonrise.]

What's there to do at night in a small town like this??

Sep. 1st, 2019



September first at King's Cross. Really does take me back.

This year was certainly much more of an impromptu class reunion than previous years; it looks like many of my classmates finally have school-aged children as well. It's a shame this is the last and only time we'll cross paths, this way.

However, having a pint with several old acquaintances seems a good way to turn them into new friends.

Ragnar, Ronan, Public


I dreamt of Kattegat last night.


You should talk more if you want me to believe something isn't going on.


Are there any non-denominational places of worship in town or nearby?

The problem with spending so much time in the Capital is that I'm horribly out of touch with the happenings in town. Mermaid's tail? Disappearing arcade game? How does one make sure to be around the next time something bizarre happens?

Hello, my family is coming back into the neighborhood. It's been a while since the summers when I was a kid.

Anyway, I have a few extra trays of inside-out pocket pies, if anyone has a sweet tooth.

There's a bit of a relief in finding that Repose hasn't changed its ways at all. Hello, I'm Del for those that might have moved into town since I've been away.

Davies Drawing & Design will be open this week, the typical hours that my mother would have kept it open, with the addition of a few hours in the morning. I've restocked the most needed school supplies, and taken a look at what mother was selling the most of in recent years, so hopefully you can find what you need.

Are street parties a consistent thing now?

A person will die of starvation slower than lack of sleep. Starvation takes weeks.

[News: Protestant Church]

[Being that Repose is such a small town, word gets out quickly about the new pastor over at the church. The last pastor took himself off shortly after the dreaming, and the town's faithful were left wringing their hands with worry that they weren't going to see a replacement before the winter snows came. The new pastor is, therefore, welcome, even if he smiles too much during service, and even if he feels much too young to many of the older members of the congregation. But he wins everyone over with those easy smiles, passionate sermons, and willingness to counsel the town's troubled, and no one seems willing to be the first person to say there's something like sinning about him when he fixes his gaze on them. No one recognizes him as Shiloh Fairchild, and it's the first time Mother's insistence that the children not socialize beneath themselves comes as something useful. Stories of Mother's murder have long since faded from the media, and Pastor Browning, it seems, is here to stay.]
