They stumbled along the strange corridors and hallways They found Themselves in, one hand clamped over Their vessel's thigh to hold the blood in, while the other trailed along the wall. The axe They'd had before wasn't with Them any more, more's the pity.
"Abra?" Their vessel called out, in Their best imitation of his voice, before bumping into the wall and leaving another smear of blood behind. Daniel Anthony Torrance yelled, screamed and lashed out in his prison inside his own mind, and They laughed to Themselves with his voice as They listened. Their caretaker's pup was a noisy one but he had finally taken his medicine, he had finally subcomed to Them, and he was finally Theirs. Granted, it had taken that woman, the delicious woman who ate Steam and Shine and was full of such glorious evil, to weaken the naughty pup to the point of near-death with her axe and then throwing him down the stairs (and even after that, he had fought and fought and struggled like the willful little bastard he'd always been) before They could get in, but They had done it! His Shine was now Theirs and he would die soon and then he would be trapped in the Overlook forever.
And suddenly They had found Themselves elsewhere, sitting at a table with a cup of coffee and looking at notes from a discussion with a Bill Denbrough. They had lurched to Their feet as They swiped the notes to the floor with a furious yell, along with the coffee, before leaving the odd dining room. This was not Their home, this strange metal place, but it still vibrated with power of many different types. They could sense it as They moved along. And the little bitch girl, the one Their pup had brought with him, the one the Steam-eater hated, was also here! And someone else, someone who felt familiar, like they should have been someone They knew, or maybe an echo of someone, they were here. And oh my, oh yes, others who Shone. Not strongly, but enough! Enough to feed on.
They paused at a junction and lifted Their head to look around. Dan Torrance needed his blood to be on the inside of his body, didn't he? Oh yes, indeed he did, and it was currently seeping out of his femoral artery at quite a rate, so that would be a problem if They didn't find the little bitch girl or one of the others soon, but not just yet, no. One eye saw the mundane side of things, but the other? It was full of Shine, it saw the ghosts of this place and as They got used to the body and its Shine, They began to work out some of what They could now do. Dan Torrance's head tilted to one side, as if he was listening for something, and then he started stumbling forward again, heading vaguely towards someone who Shone.
"Abra? Where the fuck are you?" They called out, Dan Torrance's voice sounding like his own mixed with a multitude of others. Their voices. "You've been a bad girl and it's time to take your medicine!" The axe might not have been there, but They were certain that Dan Torrance's hands would be more than capable of wringing people's necks. Oh my, oh yes.
OoC Notes: Dan is now AU Dan. He's film Dan, not Book Dan. He's been brought from just after all the Overlook ghosts started pawing at him, so that is a super-fun time indeed.
Compared to the Dan everyone's used to, Film!Danno has shorter hair, is 4 inches shorter and does not have an odd little rune tattooed on his wrist under his watch strap. He's also, uh, currently bleeding out from a massive axe wound to the thigh.
