So, in between the drinking and the storytelling and the weird little everythings happening around here that's working its way into my memoirs (otherwise known as Shit is Still Crazy), I decided I could put some efforts into the next chapter of Hard in Hightown. I usually do these in nine parts, and if you haven't read the first eighteen chapters, sorry - I didn't manage to snag them before getting carted off into the wild blue whatever it is that pulled me here.

Still, I've seen weirder shit, so they might show up here at some point. Don't hold your breath or anything, but considering I've personally seen a chapter I didn't write yet in the Fade, anything's possible.

[ooc | below the cut is a link to the first 18 chapters (canon) if you're curious... there's also Chapter 19, which I've written myself in the same stylings. It's going to be rather cheesy detective stuff, I hope you enjoy it as I continue it.] )

A mysterious stranger sent me a poe I have an admirer! Perhaps this holiday is not entirely useless, as it seems to foster morale. A poem I wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day. Ugh... get a hold of yoursel

Despite my initial misgivings I have volunteered myself to act as a voice of Thedas in what is called an "AMA", or "Ask Me Anything". Despite the nomenclature, do not ask me anything. I will only answer questions that I can answer truthfully or fairly. However, as I have had my hand in a wide variety of political maneuverings, religious ceremonies, and assorted adventures, I would hope that I possess the ability to respond to most queries with enthusiasm and accuracy.

My name is Cassandra Pentaghast. I was a Seeker back home for many years, eventually starting the Inquisition and becoming a high-ranking representative of the Chantry called 'the Divine'. I have not been fully honest regarding my position in the Chantry because I had reason to believe that this place was the result of magic or ill-intended illusion. Now, I am not so sure.

Thank you for your time.

Fair's fair, Seeker. You played a mean hand of Wicked Grace and this dwarf honors his losses. Just don't expect these too often, I've got better things to do than sit around writing this stuff. Since I don't expect to make any profit here, I'll just share it with anyone who might be interested while I'm at it.

I retired, you know. Just recently. And now I'm here. In this hellhole. No offense, if you like it here, but I was just married.



Literally. Ten minutes ago. And my wife isn't here. Do you know what I had to go through the last two seasons for my love? A lot. I had to die for it. Isabella was engaged to an eleven year old.


Now I have a twin not-brother and no princess. And Sid was right about metal zipper things and he's never going to let me live it down. This is where I would normally make threats, such a "bring my wife to me or I will slice through all of you" yet something tells me that wouldn't work. I need a drink.

THIS IS MY WEDDING NIGHT

Let's not do that again.

It's strange, remembering being a child so clearly.

That's right, Sera. I remember everything. Should I ever have children, you will not be allowed to watch them. I am popping every one of these balloons with my sword.

There's too much damn magic around here. Somebody better fight me before I go crazy.

And no, I don't wanna be hugged or friended or whatever you humans plan on doing. I can't do my job, so I'm going to do the next best thing. Fight. Going to get re-educated anyway, at this po

Pardon me for interrupting. A lady said I should ask here to find my family. My name is Cullen Rutherford, and I am lost. My father is Finn Rutherford, and my sisters are Mia and Rosalie, and my brother is Branson. I am not sure how I got here. My mother is sick, so I need to get home to help.

I swear on Maferath's hairy ass, I don't know how or why I keep ending up like this. One minute it's all jokes and drinks at the Hanged Man, the next it's waking up in some cold room with people pointing lights in your eyes and asking your name. Why do I keep ending up in the middle of the crazy shit? I've never said anything but positive things about Andraste's physical features.

No one tell the Seeker, but I could write a dozen books in half the time with something like this.

Garrett. Is this some kind of joke? Are you avoiding me? This isn't like any Fade I've ever seen and the people-

This is ridiculous.



I'm sorry. Hello. I'm Warden Bethany Hawke, and I was told my brother is here, along with some others I might know, but the brother part seemed impertinent, as he sent me off past Orlais and hasn't answered any of my letters. Aveline wouldn't even let me get a pretty dress.

Good afternoon.

For those of you who do not know me, I am Cullen Rutherford, and going forward, I will be your sergeant. I am not particular about matters of address; call me Sergeant, Cullen, or Rutherford as you like.

To provide some general information on myself: I have been here at Mount Weather since the month they call May here. Before that I was Commander of the Army of the Inquisition in Thedas, and prior to that, Knight-Captain of the Templars at Kirkwall. I have been in some form of military service since I was thirteen years old. My background is primarily in melee combat and battle strategy. My weapons of choice are sword and shield, I am reasonably competent with daggers and bows, and I've become a decent shot with a rifle since my arrival here.

I would appreciate it if each of you would respond here to give me some idea of your skills and aspirations, that I may determine how we can best work together to become an effective unit. Seeker, I know you and your skills already, of course, but the others would probably like an introduction.

Thank you. I look forward to serving with you all.

It was suggested that I write to announce my arrival. I am Cassandra Pentaghast, from Nevarra, of the Seekers of Truth. I understand that several of my friends and compatriots have already been here for quite some time, and that this is not a trick, nor the result of the Fade's lawlessness.

It is most strange, whatever this is.

I would prefer my other titles be kept to our eyes only, unless they have already been made public knowledge.

What magic is this and how do we stop it?

Normally I am not one to make announcements, but the Troubles have caused enough trouble that I thought it appropriate in this case:

According to the tests run in Medical this afternoon, Messere Audrey has been successful in altering my Trouble. Rather than being a walking narcotic, I am now merely caffeinated. Doctor Tam says my blood, sweat, saliva, etc. are now no more dangerous than a cup of coffee. So, if you find me indoors not wearing gloves, there is no need for concern.

Testing?

This is so stupid. What am I even supposed to say? Should have given me a script, Bell

I'm supposed to be doing a test to see who can actually see this to check and see if the network is up and running. I guess if you can see this, reply back with your name and if you're having any kind of issues? I can pass them along to whoever.
