Brave New World / Re: [BNW] Chapter 8: A Thin Black Line
« on: April 18, 2018, 06:03:23 PM »
Rosie’s/Dalla’s eyes fluttered open as Leon held her.  “Leon?” she said weakly.

Leon was alarmed.  He voice had held a doubled timbre, as if two people were speaking, slightly out of time with one another.  Her eyes focused on him, and he noted that her eyes were now brown, instead of blue.  She shook her head and blinked several times, before moving to stand.  She wobbled a little and leaned on Leon’s arm, touching his face.  “What’s wrong?” she asked, concern coloring her twin voices.  Her eyes widened as she heard herself, and she touched her throat.

“I.. we..”  She began breathing heavily, eyes darting from side to side.  “B-both?!”  She grabbed at Leon, before pushing him away. 

“You should leave me.”  Rosie’s voices were ragged, and she covered her face with her hands.

"Wha-" Leon breathed upon hearing her speak. What had happened? The combination of their beings had resulted in some sort of a dual being. Two spirits in one body? If that were true, what had happened to Dalla's body? And the voices? And everything else? The questions came all at once and shock was plainly apparent on the void captain's face.

After the initial alarm had wore off, Leon took Rosie by her wrists, parting her hands from in front of her face. She resisted at first, but slowly her hands were moved down to her sides as Leon looked into her eyes. They snapped shut and Rosie looked down and away, containing a sob.

Rosie. That was still who Leon saw. Through the vocal oddity and the seeming loss of her beautiful sapphire eyes, Leon nonetheless still saw the woman he fell in love with. "You're alive. For the moment that is all that matters." he told her, gently pulling her closer to meet his gaze "I thought that you had left me forever. I certainly will not leave you now."

(What did Rosie's ring finger look like when it was being moved away from her face? Did she still have the engagement knot?)

Ducking down periodically as best he could from the sounds of the gunfire all around, Cosimo continued to press in with his brothers. He swiped broadly to the left and right, hoping to catch someone in his path, though seeming to only score grazes at first. However, if one thing was for sure it was that they were gaining ground. The fever was catching in the enemy and Cosimo could sense it as more and more ground gave. That turncoat and his men weren't going to escape this time.

I do believe we need to get to gettin'. I don't remember the exact date this forum will turn into a pumpkin, but it's April, so I do know it's sooner than later. Given the set of rolls just dropped on Ass Bite, I'm going to say, he doesn't have much left to give and we can get to skinning him alive.
That's real true man. I last talked to CG on the Discord server, he said he was still making out the epilogues for the other campaign, I imagine that has to be what's taking up most of his time. But we gotta get gone before there's no board to post to.

Leon looked back and forth, sinking to the ground and clutching Rosie tightly in his arms. His sword de-ignited and his laslock clattered as he rushed to support her head. The entire fight seeming forgotten in all the commotion, the captain merely held his beloved woman in his arms, shielding her as he had never shielded before. Behind him, Jergen achieved his revenge and Jack Larabe set upon Dark Mason, ending her once and for all.

Seconds later, it was all over and the dust of combat rolled away, leaving Rosie... or what Leon could only hope was still her, motionless in his grasp. "Rosie..." he finally said, adjusting his grip so she rested on his knee "Rosie. It's over, my love. We finally did it. We won."

No answer.

"Rosie? Rosie, please. It's me, it's Leon. Please! Please answer me!" Leon begged, tapping his fingers lightly upon her breast. Still no answer. The doctor remained motionless in his arms, her face serene and her golden hair falling carelessly on either side, as though she were sleeping. Slowly, Leon began to weep. "No. No... What have I-?"

His weeping gave way to bitter sobs as tears obscured his vision.

"What have I done?"

Without waiting a second for the smoke, Cosimo slung his coach gun and drew his sword. As he did so and prepared a charge, Cosimo felt a wave of inspiration in the air before him. This was his home, the land of his lost family to which he had sworn to return and avenge. Most of his family's fate was known by the reports from the gallows. There was one whom he had never learned of since the day of his escape. And though she may have slipped his mind at times, Cosimo had never forgotten his vow to return and find what had become of her.

Cosimo's sabre pointed forward and he bellowed out his chosen cry. "ANGILINA!!!" You are not forgotten, my elder sister! I am here for you!

Bullets whizzing beside his ears, French steel blazing in the sun before him, the son of Don Georgio Spacone charged beside his men with a renewed fervor.

Cosimo tightly grasped his weapons, visualizing Elena and Moira's faces. Praying with all his might it would not the last time, he straightened out and urged his men to war. [language=italian]"These traitor filthborn slugs and French occupiers; I want them dead, now!"[/language] he called out, picking an important target to go toe to toe with [language=italian]"Get off a shot and close in. We haven't yet begun to show them the ferocity of the Spacone!"[/language]

Patiently steadying his coach gun, Cosimo grimly looked for someone important or a big old cluster of chumps to unload on before making his charge.

Does anyone wanna share social media or anything? You've all been dear friends for years, I'd hate to lose touch permanently.

Or, alternately, how about a cortex discord server?
Pff. I've got Discord. Why the heck not?

Caught in the temple by Leon's counter, Dalla lay defenseless on her knees; her defenses open and spared only by the Lord-Captain's mercy. "You're stronger than this. Faster. Deadlier." Leon started to say, pointing his sword at Dalla, gingerly using it to brush a lock of her steadily corrupting golden hair out of her face "You know every flawed fiber of my anatomy back to front and all of my sword forms and yet you're holding back. That tells me... that something is amiss within you. You don't want to do this." He shook his head.

For a moment, Dalla seemed to look beyond the point of Leon's cutlass at her throat and straight up at him. It amazed him that although he knew he was protecting the love of his life just over his shoulder, he knew deep down he was trying desperately to save her at the point of his sword. These women were of the same flesh. Two tragic possibilities that could have happened, and did. And now he was facing all of his shattered destinies at once. "Don't give in. Not when you are so close. You and I have never given in, not from the day we first met. When we were searching for buried treasure in the jungle. You didn't give up on me then, even when you had every reason. And I never stopped trying with all my heart to gain your trust, because I needed you."

"I always have. I always will." he told her, looking for any sign he was getting through to her, looking for that same look of love he used to know "Trust in me. And we can finish this as we were meant to. Reunited."

Forgive my absence of late. Two weeks ago, I slipped on a patch of ice at work and cracked my head open, went into ICU and spent the next week in hospital recovery. 8 staples to close the wound. This past week Ive been recuperating at home, but have had little creative desire.

Though I would drop back in to explain this, and catch up a bit.
Good Lord. Hope you're going to be okay. I've finished off the year a little rough. My landlord sold the place without telling us until the management company did so for them, so my roommates and I are getting evicted January 31st. I've been doing my best to remain true to the game though and close it out as best I can. Just like so many things, this year seems to have also taken a bit of our creative impetus and desire, as you said.

I'm praying real hard we can give this site at least a better send off than Luke, Han and Leia got.

Cosimo also took on a fighting scowl as the skylines of Napoli appeared from out of the clouds. At last, he was making his homecoming.

[language=italian]"We're fighting for our mothers and our fatherland today, men!"[/language] Cosimo called out, addressing his countrymen and friends who still accompanied him [language=italian]"Do not disappoint me or yourself and we will go far. AVANTE!!"[/language]

He stomped around the ship's deck relaying the captain's orders and ordered men into position "Starboard! Ready broadside! Go! Go-go!"
