Quick question: what the fuck?

[OOC: Luther just arrived yesterday. Yes, I am this mean to him. Hargreeveses, please feel free to assume you've seen him by now or that you haven't, whichever is funnier your preference.]

I don't usually keep a knife in my protein powder, but I guess today is a different type of day.


Looks like it might be a teleporting dagger too.


You know who would like this, probably, is Vax. But he just has so fucking many daggers. Eh.

Diego says that finding the entire wine cellar from Grazyk is no reason to stop in the middle of our training, but he did not accidentally stumble upon it when taking a water break nor does he understand that the sheer size alone would be enough to stop any person. He also is on the mend, and truly the break was for his benefit not mine. Now, for those of you I owed a drink, can it be a Tranavian red?

FILTERED TO JACOB & EVIE
Have you been doing some remodeling under the Underground? And I am not speaking about the sudden appearance of my wine cellar, though you are both welcome to take from as payment for unintentionally housing it under your establishment.

I suppose my eternal gratitude is in order for disposing of the Vultures and sealing off the Salt Mines entrance. I would say I owe each of you a drink for your efforts, but I'm told that is not feasibly possible. However, if all of you do not try to claim the drink at once, it can be arranged.

For those of you who managed to steal indefinitely borrow take books from inside the mines, I hope you do your research before practicing anything within those pages. If you happen to come across my brother's the lunatic ravings of the Black Vulture's notes on how to sacrifice blood mages to become a god, know that the ritual is flawed and does not work. Mostly I suggest you be rid of it.

Right, so. I think Evie and I found the beasties' nest. Too on the nose? Serefin says it's called the Salt Mines, anyway. There was no way to get close without tipping our hand, but they definitely seem to be coming and going from there. No actual salt as far as I can tell. No obvious leader either. I'll pass on the location to the DOA and I imagine we'll mount some kind of offensive? Don't look at me, I don't organise things. I do want in though. I've a message to deliver.

SEREFIN MELESKI (NARRATIVE)
His mind was solid, his mental state grounded, usurping that for a taste of something more was what Malachiasz did, and Serefin was most certainly nothing like his half-brother.

Hello, yes, hi, normally I would fill this space with some flirtatious banter or something...else witty, I don't know, but the things in the forest? They have cloaks and look like human birds? Are from Tranavia. They're called Vultures. They're blood mages, like we are, but they're...worked on? Tortured? We don't completely know how they're made, but they're made and then they're much more powerful. They're a bit like a secret police, a bit like a military. I was tutored by one, he was eccentric but not so bad compared to the rest of my tutors.

But when the process of becoming a Vulture goes--wrong--they lose their humanity and they're much more powerful because they do not listen to anyone or anything, they do not recognize limits, they are more monster than human. Which is what these are.

I think I am rambling a bit

Here's what you need to know. They're incredibly fast, and they fly, which yes, that is where the name comes from you're welcome. They're very good at just about everything because they do not care and they cannot be reasoned with. Once they set their minds (because they have a bit of a hive mind, I don't know more than that to explain it) to something, they will achieve that thing. Which is usually death. They use fire, mostly, but they've been known to create earthquakes, rip boulders out of the earth, that sort of thing. And then they have monster claws and teeth that have torn apart armor like a piece of paper.

You can behead them. That is it. Otherwise, they will keep going. They have no sense of pain, or compassion, or empathy, or anything. If you are going somewhere, I suggest it is in groups. I'll be out as well.

Serefin

I'll take care of it.

I am not underestimating you.

XHORHAUS + OTHER FRIENDS*
For those of you that aren't aware, I applied for a job at a youth center in the city a couple weeks back, had a couple of interviews, and this morning was offered the position. I accepted it, though I'm still in vague shock as I was definitely not expecting to actually get to this point but I don't start until the beginning of next month so hopefully it will all sink in sometime before then. I've never had a real job before that didn't require me to use daggers to complete my duties so it's a shift.

Anyway -- shock or not, I'm not one to pass up a chance to celebrate something and it's always more fun to celebrate with friends. I know it's last minute so no hard feelings if you already have your dance cards full for a Friday, but I feel as though drinks are in order, at least. Quills, tonight? Perhaps not a proper pub crawl, but we'll see where the night takes us? We can sort out a babysitter for the girls, maybe? Another question here, just for the hell of it?

IC fight club reminder


[info]brassknuckles
[info]valloic
If anyone lays eyes on Evie Frye today, congratulations! You've succeeded where her own flesh and blood has failed. I think the super stealth suit is even out. Which means it's not just about

Anyyway, fight club is a week from Saturday and we're throwing in a side event in honour of finding literally any excuse to throw more punches after this bollocks. So if you're interested in randomly paired fights two on two, come by this week to add your name to the pot. It's just one match per person at the tail end of the night for some extra fun. We might let you pick your pairs next time, but we want to see how this fits first. Cheers.

[ooc: All bolded strikeouts are a fail strikeout. Paired fights are just for kicks and don't have a bracket or winner's purse but bets are encouraged! Standard fight club sign-ups are here and pairs fight sign-ups are here. Sign-ups end 3/18.]

Jiang Cheng, do not be upset.

The Burial Mounds is here? How it was-- before. When it was prettier, and things were growing, and there is flourishing lotus! It's empty of people otherwise?

And the spirits are quiet too. But the cave is still there and so is my blood pool! Serefin, I have an idea.

Two giant lake monsters in two lifetimes! What are the odds?


Will someone come keep me company? Lan Zhan is my soulmate and I love him more than anything but I am very bored and there is only so much Go I can play before I will go crazy. Can someone bring me alcohol? I hear it helps you heal faster after being impaled! (I am okay, really! Wen Qing is the best doctor in our world and Lan Zhan has made sure my spirit is in top shape.)

In case anyone's curious, firefighting training hasn't killed me yet. It's made a valiant effort! But I've only thrown up once.


Alright, fine. Twice.

So there's a high-rise full of smug pricks in suits, right? Some money has carefully exchanged hands and now I have unfettered access to the building. After we sort out whether this circle of death is all hands on deck or not, do you want to race me around the office in those wheeled chairs? We can leave foul-smelling gifts for them to come back to on Monday.

It's funny how unpredictably nostalgia can hit you. I don't have much to be nostalgic for - I had a wretched existence as a searingly attractive-yet-abused indentured servant back home in the dripping ossuary caverns of the Ninth - and yet the people! A tiny blot of people. Not many people, mind, but a few - they're worth missing. Sex Pal would have just loved this place. He's a scholarly type - into dusty things of Great Historical Import - whatever that is. He'd absolutely see all the shit the academics have done here and just yeet himself into the center of it. (Incidentally, Sex Pal is not a sex pal; his name is Palemedes Sextus and he is a beautiful soul trapped within an amber of bitchiness, and he deserves the nickname. I don't swing that way because have you seen boobs, but if you put a knife to my throat and I had to chose, I'd go with Fandral here at Vallo anyhow. He reminds me of a palomino. Anyway, Sex Pal is just a name he hates and pretends not to notice when I use it. Sex Pal thinks I'll stop using it if he doesn't give me a reaction. I am going to use it until the universe ends.)

Anywho, rather than sit about and mope and wonder how everyone back home is - dead and/or smug, I'd wager - I'm going to try something new - yoga! It sounds awful. I can't wait to bend myself into a plate of spaghetti and wonder what the hell past!Gideon was thinking. Anyone have any experience? Can I do it raging?

I've been patient, I've been sweet-tempered and just, I haven't grabbed you by the ankles and shaken you, so now I must ask: why have you been moping about looking like some aggressively-haunted Victorian doll? I didn't want to be a bother but I simply can't be mature any longer.

I am a General in the Tranavian army (which I know means not a lot to people because Tranavia doesn't exist for you, I promise, it's impressive). I am feared in our border countries--there is a curse word that was created in one because of me. I am a very, very, very good blood mage. I have spent years trudging through swamps and forests and mountains in blistering heat and freezing cold.

Why am I terrible with this stupid oven.

This is just a quick note to let you know that I haven't died alone in my library covered in books - I have an office now in which to do that. In recent weeks, I accepted the position of Magical Research Lead for the Department of Outlander Affairs. The previous person in this position had a number of notes I have been working through, and now that I have a decent notion of where we are, I can start planning for how I'd like us to be. Already I see several opportunities to apply the many talents and skills that we have at our disposal here at Vallo to hopefully make life more comfortable, and to offer support for those new arrivals who might add to our knowledge of Vallo's workings through their own magical talent.

I've not abandoned my current project - magical fluctuation in alternate universes - nor will I quit any existing side-projects I have agreed to. I thank you for your patience as I continue to come up to speed, and if I may assist in something with regard to magical research, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Well, he did it literally under the wire but my little shit of a mentee is all signed up for Fight Club. Actually had to put an ice pack on my eye too, so shit's legit.

Also if you liked the pillow fight idea, it was all Evie's brainchild. If you hated it, I came up with it and you can say it to my face because you know I don't give a fuck.
