[A rather pleased and slightly bemused Theo clicks onto the Network. He feels the need to announce this to everyone, even if no one cares.]

I'm having twins!

[Then he pauses and realizes what he says.]

I mean Adrienne. My wife. She's going to have twins! I'm going to be the father of twins!

[Yes. So the 4th wall weekend did bring him some rather happy news.]

[The feed clicks on and Theo is holding up a coffee mug in his hand. It's a rather boring mug, with paisley flowers on it, but other than that unremarkable. Theo, however, is sporting a fantastic black eye and another bruise on his chin. While normally a bit on the pale, needs to be warmed up a bit side of things the black eye really brings out the I look like some sort of dead thing in him.]

Do you know what I really miss from back home? Martha Stewart's Heat'em or Freeze'em line of tableware. Lovely colors and you just have to say 'warm' or 'cool' and the cup or plate will... heat up or cool down whatever is in or on it.

[He sips from the cup and makes a face at it.]

Having to microwave lukewarm coffee is really annoying.

[Is someone a spoiled, over privileged brat? Yup.]

Anybody know what happened to me over the weekend? I woke up this morning feeling like I'd been in a fight and I don't remember a damn thing.

[When Theo comes into the casino today he's not alone. He has girl with him. No, strike that, a very striking woman. She towers over him by a good few inches, with blonde, almost white blonde as opposed to Theo's more sickly blond, hair that flows down her back in waves and legs that go a long way down.

She's also wearing a wedding band, one similar to Theo's.]

And this is where I've been working. I think the last time you were here it was a big party... but that was for Meyer's birthday. Let's see who's around here and I can introduce you to people.

((Replies will come from [personal profile] sostylish as well as Theo's. Come meet his wife!))

[There are reasons why necromancers don't get drunk or do drugs. The following is a very good reason for why.

It's been a year since Theo has been in the City. A year, give or a take that week he went home for two years and came back. And it's been three years since he discovered he had an older brother. An older brother who was a god of the undead and causing his fan girls (and boys) to commit ritual murders in an attempt to repower their father and himself. It ended up with Los Angeles suffering a good sized earthquake, a zombie invasion and the traffic jam from hell.

Needless to say that he's really not liking October.

Which is why

this is happening at Lucky's:

Theo, himself, is doing the singing. He's got his feet up on the stage and is making the skeletons dance like he's conducting an orchestra. No one knows where he's gotten the skeletons. It's probably best not to ask.

But the scary thing is.. really... when you think about it... is that he's doing this... everything coordinated ... while drunk. ]


[After Meyer's conversation there is now a congo line of skeletons prancing about the streets.]

Did anyone else feel like something rolled over their graves last night?

Because something made my back crawl and has been bothering me ever since.

((Backdated to the wee hours of Tuesday Morning))

Okay. This curse is fucking stupid. Where is all my coffee? And why the hell does every single place I go to seem to run out of anything with caffeine when I get there?

[Grouchy necromancer is grouchy... actually caffeine deprived necromancer is dangerously cranky.]


[At the Casino, in theory, Theo should be running his card table, but he's been radiating DEATH and DESTROY EVERYTHING so "loudly" that people have been avoiding it. And Meyer appears to have vanished. So he's nursing a drink at the bar and glowering at people.]

[Things people don't realize about Theo. He needs at least three cups of coffee before being able to act human... guess what. He got hit by the Cold-Turkey curse...]
25 August 2013 @ 06:50 pm
[Theo pushes his sunglasses up his nose and gives a big sigh.]

I realize that I was gone for a week, but that really isn't a reason to go looting through my apartment.

Someone stole my knife.

It has a blade made out of obsidian and a bronze hilt. It also has strong... [evil] necromantic aura. If anyone has seen it, I would rather like it back, it was a gift from my father.

Also, it's cursed so unless you want to start getting haunted I really suggest getting back to me or letting me know where I can find it. Even if you've gotten rid of it, you'll start getting haunted.
Current Mood: annoyed
21 August 2013 @ 04:05 pm
[The feed clicks on with Theo dressed up in cold weather gear. Very cold weather gear.]

No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No.

[He switches to some other language - a form of ancient Babylonian and curses some more. It's very inventive and you really didn't think that would be possible with that. Theo doesn't seem to be angry, more like annoyed. As if he was in the middle of something very important on a deadline. Which he was.]

Damnit all!

[For the observant folks, Theo is also now sporting wedding band.]

[Theo's been canon updated! It's been about two years for him.]

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know exactly what the ticking thing is? The point of it all? I realize it's a clock and seems to be linked the merry go round in the center there, but does anyoe know anything else about it?

Filtered to Meyer

Hey. Meyer! We need to talk about something real quick and important.
15 June 2013 @ 10:15 am
[Theo's grinning a bit with mad cheerfulness.]

I've been doing some thinking over the past couple of weeks. Especially about the whole revolution.

Personally, I'm not convinced it's real.

Oh, I know, there's been the protests and the people running it. The deities have their panties in a twist.

And yet, I have to wonder. The leaders of the revolution promise that they can send us home. It's a tempting bait. They say they can give us our powers back to their full level, a very tempting bait for those of us that have them and have had them... blocked.

But it's really something that only the deities could be able to do, isn't it?

So, what if this is really just one horribly grand ploy to a. figure out who really would try and fight against them. b. find out who is really loyal to them, for whatever reason. c. get rid of those said troublemakers with the excuse of keeping law and order within the city.

I've seen it happen before.

I mean they've been spying on us the entire time anyway. They just wanted to have an excuse since they seem to like the idea that they've got a well run and reasonable city. Of course then again they can probably just kill us all and this is being done for their own sadistic amusement.

Maybe they'll do that anyway.

It wouldn't surprise me.

((Paranoia curse? Well, yes. Because there's nothing more fun than spreading your own paranoid ramblings to everyone else))

[The video device snaps on just as a startled and painful yell is followed by a loud thump on the ground. It shows an upside down -shirtless - Theo sans his sunglasses, but fortunately not sans pants. His silver eyes blink out at everything and he yanks his right arm, discovering that it is currently cuffed to something else.]

What the...[and then something rather rude in some ancient not spoken in ages language follows. Because cursing in other languages is fun!]

[Gabriel stirs slowly, feeling the yank on her arm. The handcuffs have enough distance between them that she can remain on the bed, and she crawls to the edge of it, peering down at Theo disapprovingly. Her hair is slightly dishevelled.]

Don’t swear.

[Then she perks up at the sight of an undead...rat? creature? thing?...and her eyes go wide. What is that?!]

[The rat would blink at her but it’s missing its eyelids. Instead it scurries off and knocks Theo’s sunglasses off the nightstand so he can put them on.]

That wasn’t swearing. Trust me. That wasn’t swearing.

[There’s a pause.]

So. Today is going to be fun, isn’t it?

[The chain on the handcufs clinks as Gabriel pulls it up to examine it, tugging on Theo slightly in the process. Dismay is evident on her face.]

Oh, dear. I would say so.

[She frowns down at him, concerned.]

What are we going to do? You’ll disintegrate at this rate!

((OOC: Blue is Gabriel. Black is Theo. Pain is for both of them.))

Has anyone found pictures of things that haven't happened yet?

[Theo waves this picture around with him and a little girl. He's a few years older here and yeah. Little girl.]

((OOC: More Theo pics: All up for grabs))
17 April 2013 @ 12:05 pm
[Theo's got his feet up on a table and he's twirling an ancient looking bronze knife around in his fingers. It's pitted, it's got stains on it (blood stains) and looks, for lack of a better word, down right evil. That's three words, isn't it? For lack of three better words, it looks down right evil. Innocent, but at the same time evil.]

Worth is a strange thing, isn't it? I mean, this knife here is just bronze, right? A decent metal but most people wouldn't make weapons out of it any more. And yet it's over five thousand years old and so that gives it worth.

Back home, I know archaeologists who would pay an arm and a leg for it... someone else's arms and legs mind you, but still...

[He flips the knife up and catches it. Behind him a ghostly dragon drifts by chased by rats.]

For me, it's a family heirloom and a tool. No one else can use it besides me without horrible things happening to them.

[Which isn't true, but whatever. He doesn't want people to be getting Ideas.]

So, which is better? For it to be sheltered and kept in a museum where people can appreciate it, in theory or it to be used for its purpose?

Which gives it more value?
[The screen opens up to a shot of one of Theo's undead rats scurring across, blocking the view. Some cracking noise follows, like an egg hatching to be exact. And then a very shocked Theo making a very shocked exclamation.]

What the... agh... Dragon!

[And then a gun shot.

A long pause follows before..]

Damn evil buggers.

[The video shuts off.]
19 March 2013 @ 09:24 am
[The video opens on a scene in the park. It's propped up against something.

Gabriel in one of her long gowns as always. She has some seeds in her hand, and she is is periodically scattering them on the ground, watching as birds flock to them. Occasionally she allows one of the birds to land on her hand and eat directly from it.]

Good morning, everyone. I hope, now that we have dispensed with the previous days' revelry, that those of you inclined to indulge in such things might have gotten it out of your systems. At least for a little while?

My condolences to anyone suffering the aftereffects. [She doesn't really intend for there to be a serves-you-right tone in her voice, but there kind of is.]

Michael's predicament made me start thinking, however.

There seem to be a lot of pets about. Is there anything like an animal shelter in this City? Please forgive me if this question has already been asked and answered. I do not wish to be a burden, but I haven't been able to find a clear answer anywhere else.

[ooc: Also open to action if anyone wants to speak to her in person!]
24 February 2013 @ 04:04 pm
I can accept a lot from this place: people coming and going, weird urges, at least weird to most of us, or some jokers trying to imitate the dead to catch us off-guard--

[ There's...bleating off screen, followed by a female voice. ]

Don't act like you know what you're talking about. You're just as new as me.

--but being paired up with a farm animal? Even a talking one...that just ain't responsible.

[ The goat's eyes twinkle as she raises her head into the camera, chewing on a pair of socks pleasantly. There appears to be something of a scuffle for the limited camera space before the video feed finally switches off. ]

(Notes: Al's got the dæmon curse this weekend. Journal or action responses are all welcome! Anyone that runs into Sofonisba (Yes, I named her. Ahem.) at the bar or on the streets will find out pretty quickly that she is very curious and, much like her human counterpart, is not afraid to go after what she wants. This can be anything from headbutting into you if you're in her way to going after your food and/or pants.)
18 February 2013 @ 01:33 pm
[Theo looks more than a bit tired. He manages a brief smile.]

There was a litter of kittens that came through over the weekend. And I'm fairly certain one of them was more than a bit destructive.

[Damn thing ate stuff.]

If there was any damage or lost items, let me know and I'll pay you back for them.
The city is full of new and strange visitors, a rather influx of them.

And here are seven more:

A mother cat and her six kittens are rambling about the city. While this normally may not be anything of note, this cat and her kittens are special.

See, they teleport.

That's right.


So, that sandwich you were about to eat? Now has a kitten on it.

Is that a mewing you hear in your purse? Yes, because there is now a kitten in it.

What's that under your hat? A kitten? Yup.

And is that grey kitten eating a plate? Like chewing it and swallowing the pieces? And then starting on the tablecloth? Yup.

At least all the kittens are friendly and momma cat is around to rescue them if they get into too much trouble.

((Fourth Wall ahoy! Here's the kittens and their quirks. Request one in particular or just get one at random. All replies will becoming from [personal profile] bamfingcats. If you're really desperate you can ask for their owner to show up and rescue you them and he'll be along.))

Hehehehehe~ What fun...Deity trumps god.

I wonder what's next~...
02 February 2013 @ 10:41 am
[The camera is at floor level, not exactly showing much right away until one of the little hippos trundles past. While this is "normal" for a given value of normal at this place, or at least for the day, what this hippo has that others don't is zombie rat on its back. The hippo is confused a to what it's got on its back, but the rat somehow manages to look pleased with itself. If you can tell pleased with a rat that's missing part of its jaw and ear and has glowing red eyes. A few times the hippo shakes itself trying to dislodge its rider but to no avail.

It's got a rat on its back.

Then the camera moves and Theo's face appears. He looks amused.]

I woke up to this. I kind of feel sorry for the little guys but every time I take Jasper off of one it gets onto another. As it doesn't seem to be harming them...

[He shrugs.]

I've heard of plagues of rats before, but not hippos. At least these guys don't seem to mind me.
