I've been stuck on how to start Damir out. I made it gone for a year so that I would have to discover the town's secrets with it, but what's the timeline of events? I know there's recent goings-ons, but how recent are those? I'm trying to figure out what it would know about the town and what it wouldn't.
The local goings-on are meant as sort of a loose reference point for ongoing conflicts, all things Damir would probably know about if it has its ear to the ground... except for maybe the volant coalition. We can say that happened within the last month.
Well, here's what I can offer about my characters:
Hodinott makes no secret about being a fairy and is known to be a regular troublemaker, and he's been in Mossy Hollow for decades, so Damir would have good reason to know of him.
Elijah, one of my bloodsuckers, is among the more conspicuous as vampires go, killing frequently and fancying himself king of the town, and somehow hasn't been caught by hunters yet despite the police publicizing a description of him. I'd say that he probably moved here well before Damir left, and it might be surprised that he's still at large. What it wouldn't know about is the recent animosity brewing between him and Anastasia -- that's still developing.
My other characters mostly keep their heads down and wouldn't be up to anything newsworthy (well, except for Friday, but they're the lesser of two evils compared to Elijah and have been much more skittish about getting noticed). I do have a dryad, though, who could provide Damir with rowan wood if it catches any trouble from the fey.
It definitely wouldn't know about Akita being infected lycanthropy within the past year, and it probably wouldn't know that Darrion's not human.
Other folks will have to volunteer information when it comes their own characters, so I'll stop here, but I think avery and raze in particular should have things to say.
oh hey, i can talk about this. thanks for tagging me hunter. c:
anyway, i really only have one character who damir may know, i think. and that would be haytham, who's been working in the funeral home for the last few years... i believe three/four. he kind of has a few strange habits/hobbies (among them including taking his lunch breaks in the cemetery, memorizing where everyone is in the cemetery, and catching bugs in order to dissect them later), so i'm kind of thinking that it'd be hard to forget him once you think about it for a moment. or, like, hear his coworkers talking about what the strange kid did at work today.
kailen is with friday and kind of trying to keep a low profile, since he literally knows absolutely nothing about humans. there may be some rumors about him since he is kind of decidedly not human in some of his mannerisms/speaking habits and sometimes enjoys making other people uncomfortable.
anastasia is currently off the radar, for the most part, though i don't know how on the radar she'll get in this little argument with elijah. anyone who did anything in a magical black market, especially california's, might know a little bit about her but otherwise she tried to keep her hands as clean as possible. or, well, kind of clean. she doesn't really have issues with making her presence known, especially about her feedings, and will likely use elijah's notoriety to her advantage in that case. sorry eli but she really doesn't like you.
and daphne's very new. like, so new she isn't even in a thread yet, whoa. but i do mention that she's kind of shown her face around a little bit, and since she does kind of have a distinct feature i wouldn't be surprised if there's little old ladies gossiping about that purple haired harlot or something.
Oh, that's funny. Damir also more or less knows the cemetery and my first thread with it is there. I think Haytham would probably have seen it around, taking notes on the new graves and double checking with its list. Yeah...; they'd probably at the very least have met before.
I don't know if it would be of much interest to Damir, but Arianna's parents had died in a large car wreak while traveling about a year and a half ago. Aria had been in collage at the time and inherited quiet a bit from her high-end parents. They weren't millionaires, but they did earn quiet a bit from legit jobs I haven't picked out yet. The house Aria inherited could almost be considered a mansion had a staff of five which still check in with Aria on occasion, but no longer work there, mostly because while Aria received a large amount of money from her parents, she tries to live off her own earnings as a musician in bars and on streets.
Though the way may seem ever darker, step by step I keep walking, hoping to one day find the light.

Hunter: Well hello Shatteredverse. And huh, that's strange, Azure. I'm not sure what that could be from.

Azurelle: Positive. I only use one password for these proboard accounts, and 2 usernames. Besides, it doesn't tell me I entered things wrong. It redirects me to the home page but I'm still not logged in.

Feb 25, 2014 2:21:39 GMT

Hunter: nothin' much. /finally/. I had a lot of schoolwork for a while there. But I'm kind of caught up now.
