It's a beautiful day, City. Make the most of it.

I need your advice. I'm looking for something to read, something that isn't poetry. Knowing I can't just makes me want to read more! Anything, really. Novels or essays or, I don't even know, so long as you like it.

Call it a change in perspective.

There are a hundred thousand lines that'd suit today and I can't remember one. Still. It's a small price to pay.

Well, this would be the place to start.

If one of you has the time, I'd like to talk to you about a deal we made, a while ago. Thank you.

All right. It's done, or at least, it will be at midnight tonight. I didn't have to give up anything I can't live without for a while at least. So whenever and wherever you'd like me to meet you...

...I can't tell you how much this means to me.

[Blurry hands cover the picture first as Neil positions the camera on some surface, then draws back and sits in front of it. He looks resigned; this isn't a post he wants to make, but since he has no choice he's trying to be dignified about it.

On his shirt, on the left breast just above his heart, a bright, ornate, scarlet S is embroidered. He looks down at it, tugs absently at his loosed collar; if you've got a keen eye, you might see the same mark stained on his skin. It's inescapable.]


I was going to talk about something nice. I wanted to see if anyone wanted to have a big snowball fight later this week, since winter's almost over and it seems a shame not to have one and I did promise someone I would. [Neil smiles, a little weakly. He's killing time, postponing the inevitable, and he knows it.] So who's in? I was thinking Friday maybe, as long as it doesn't get any warmer before then.

[He nods, looking a little better now. Having managed to say his piece in spite of the compulsion to talk about his letter makes him feel a little less powerless, though he isn't eager to discuss the mark.]

So. The curse.

[He hesitates, takes a breath.]

I get this one, I never read the book actually but I know what it means. It isn't a secret, even if I don't like talking about it... I'm not proud. But I won't lie, either.

S, for suicide.

[Relieved, his cursed duty discharged, Neil leans forward and hurriedly turns off the camera.]


[ooc; comments could potentially contain disturbing material, idk.]

[The recording kicks off with some swift, shallow breaths, and a distant dry rumble-- the sound of dirt settling as it pours through a now-open door.]

I-I'm not sure where this goes. But I guess this is the only way out there is, so.

[Neil pauses. Given what he's heard-- what Cain said-- it's hard to be convinced that this pile of earth leads anywhere he wants to go. It's ironic; he's in the room where he died, facing what might be a grave, and though he ought to be dead he isn't. If he doesn't make it--

He takes a deep breath.]


I'll... try. I hope I see you all soon.

Okay.



[ooc; slow tags for a bit. Action for Todd, voice replies for others assumed to be after he gets hisself together <3]

I didn't mean to go through. I was only trying to see if I could find Anne, and while I was looking in it's like it moved to swallow me up and.

[There's a pause here as Neil tries to collect himself. He's managing not to sniffle, but not even trying to hide how distraught he is.]

I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, I didn't know I'd fall through.

I want to come back. Please. I don't want to be here.

[Filtered away from Todd. Which is not difficult]

Okay, so, I'm not sure if he's mentioned it to anyone-- probably not-- but Todd's birthday is coming up really soon, and I'd like to throw a party for him. So, um-- consider this an invitation to all his friends, and all my friends, any even anyone who doesn't know him well but would like to, to join us for that. It'll be held November Sixth, unless there's a curse and we need to reschedule-- I'll let everyone know that morning, I guess.

I think we should be able to hold it in our apartment. probably. And-- I don't know if I should-- it's not like it's the kind of thing you can keep secret... Todd can't talk for the month. So I want this to be really special for him, because he deserves it. And, I guess this is his 18th birthday, too. Sort of, but not really since it hasn't really been a year, but.

I just want him to have a really nice time.

Anyway! If you think you're going to come, just let me know! So I have an idea of how much food to get, stuff like that.

And of course, don't tell him, because then it wouldn't be a surprise.


[ooc; orz i haven't had a chance to deal with the play stuff, fml, but can we handwave it and assume people are.. working on parts and soforth and. gaah /brainesplode. basically if your char wants in, Neil will find a way to involve them, anyway. :3 also MOSTLY A PLACEHOLDER most replies will be later tonight / tomorrow sobbb. we have company but i wanted this out there]

If I made a fool of myself the other day, I'm sorry about it. I really didn't know I was cursed.


[ooc; on top of the Road Not Taken curse, he found this ;_; aaaangsssst. tags may be spotty for a while, costumewerk /m/,]

Is anyone else cursed today? Last time... I feel like there were more people talking about it. Maybe it's just too early...

Saturday was really crazy, wasn't it? I'm used to the idea that there are people out there who look like me, but... I didn't expect there to be so many. I enjoyed it though, mostly. Though I can see why some of you don't like it; after a while it must get very trying. I wonder where all of them come from, how they know so much about us...

I guess I should enjoy this while I can. What's everyone doing today?


[ooc; per Todd's deal, Neil is alive~ and. Todd is not. but Neil doesn't know that yet ;__; also if you want to squirt him feel free ffff <3]
