Name Stuff
Hey guys, just a quick little something I wanted to let people know and didn't want to have to repeatedly explain on chat. I'd hate for this to come across as frivolous, so I want to make clear that I'm very serious and I'm not just doing this on a whim or for the novelty value. This isn't cheap to me.

Basically, I've been concerned for a month or so about the name Isabel and honestly some of the connotations it has on my real life. I like it, I love going by it... but it also happens to be the name of my mother's boss, who she, to put it frankly does not like very much. I want things to go as smoothly as possible in the long term, and I see this as a potential snarl for telling my parents about, well, everything.

I don't want to leave that kind of association open, more or less. As such I'm going to move Isabel to my middle name so that I can still go by it if I want to... just not at home, in the long term.

Anyway... the whole point I'm trying to get to is that I'm changing my first name. I'm going to be Lily from now on, though I'm not going to force anybody to stop calling me Isabel or Izzy.

Thanks for reading, everyone. You've all been awesome to me about this.

I'm in serious need of some time to clear my head. I'm finding it difficult to focus, creatively, which I think may be one part needing a break and one part my ongoing 'issues' preying on me.

I might post sporadically, specifically in getting SOTF: TV off the ground over on Mini, but I don't think I'm up to writing at the moment. Too much buzzing around. Consider me away for a week (next monday).
Much as I don't like to extend this...

I'm getting hella anxious about everything and especially since I'm leading up to my first actual appointment -> I'm going to be back Friday. Hopefully after I've had this appointment, I'll be able to relax a little bit and actually concentrate.

Except hitman pierces protection? Unless hitman doesn't work against elite bodygaurd. Actually, the elite bodygaurd role pm doesn't seem to say that it actually protects their target, so I really have no idea what's going on.
Not all hitmen work in that fashion. Sometimes hitman translates to 'designated killer' more than anything else.


Elite bodyguard usually dies in place of the target, but also kills the attempted killer.

Bodyguard just dies in place of the target.

OFFICIAL SOTF CHATROOM
Is anybody else getting some random message on mibbit that a 'new google maps key is required'?

It doesn't seem to be affecting too much, but it's odd and a little irritating.

Umm... Question to the Moderator Staff.
Being purely voting would have struck me as a little arbitrary and mechanical.

Moxie Blood
...Oh Jimmy.

Umm... Question to the Moderator Staff.
Basically that ^.

It was a lot of work for increasingly diminishing returns. Perhaps I was guilty of lapsing on it, but it is what it is.

May the Lord Accept This Sacrifice at Our Hands
((Placeholder of sorts))

...She was gone.

He'd failed.

Imraan wasn't sure if he'd hit Peter, found himself torn between hoping he had and wondering if by shooting at him, he'd just stooped to his level. Then he looked down at Jessie's face again and no longer cared about the moral high ground.

Peter had killed his best friend, his crush, in cold blood. There was no possible way he could justify himself, no possible atonement. He deserved every hell Imraan could give him.

But... he could've done something more, right? Why had he been so slow? Why had he dawdled at the door and let Jessie - Jessie with her broad smile and welcoming voice - just rush straight up to Peter. If he'd been there, maybe he could've helped her, ran Peter off. He had this shotgun right?

Imraan's gaze snapped up from Jessie, whose expression, against all odds, was serene, smiling. Peter was speaking to him. Was there even any sense in listening? Petty, trivial justifications. Ridiculous excuses, no doubt. He wasn't going to waste his time on them.

"You really think I care about what you have to say, Peter? You lost any claim to honesty and integrity the second you attacked her. You want to lecture me after killing my BEST FRIEND!? How dare you! How DARE you!? J...Just GET OUT OF HERE!"

Silence.

Imraan looked back down to Jessie. He hadn't budged in what seemed like years, on his knees in her blood. The anger dissolved away, and then came the tears.

She didn't deserve this.

Feral Intelligence
Kris breathed again. He hadn't called it, bluff or no. She'd gained a little breathing space. For now. Kris wasn't entirely sure she deserved it. Yet... for her guilt... Kris didn't want to die. She didn't want to be another corpse. RJ was staring at her, then... backing off. But the intent look in his eyes told her simply that it wasn't the last she'd heard of this. Heading back to the girl, was he?

She had a bad feeling about this, Kris's hand holding the detonator wavered. RJ didn't have the look of somebody who'd given up. Kris watched RJ, half an eye on the squeak that had come from nearby. Less of a threat, much less. Kris watched, and swiftly, she realised.

Not retreat.

Farewell.


...What was she sitting on?

Cool metal.

Snatch of...

The voice.

Best kill award.

Town center.

BKA.

Town center.

This box...


Kris slowly, in a near daze, rose to her feet. Turned. There was the box at her feet. Large, cuboid.

A box... a container.

Kris looked down at it, back to RJ. Back to the container. RJ was moving towards her. Time for a gamble. Time to put her faith in the man that had made her four times a murderer, purely because like before... she was too selfish to set aside herself.

Whatever, Kris was never a saint. Repentence. ...tear. That wasn't going to change anything, not anymore.

She opened the box.

...

Beautiful.


A light came into Kris's eyes as she looked on it.

An M79 grenade launcher.

Gently, almost reverantly, Kris reached down, picked the weapon up, hefted it, cradling it in her arms like a child.

Smile.

Kris swerved around, her attention on the weapon and the box before it meaning she hadn't yet spotted Aston. She raised the grenade launcher, pointed it straight at the advancing RJ. Pulled the trigger.

Click.

Not loaded!?

For obvious reasons, I would really rather Rosa not die.

I guess you can send me ideas though.
Alright. It was probably unrealistic to ask for charity. I'll cut a deal. Straight up hero for a hero.

Decoy you've already been told once to not repeat requests or offers of deals. Don't, please.

Just go with the canon name. LP names are boring because everybody just wants to name them "Dicks" and "Slut" and stuff.
