Why do the little lives revolve around such boring dates? Another year to end, one more to begin...eventually they all run into each other. Why worry about the passing of the date? Your life is what is passing by and should be your concern, not the calendar.

[Oh sorry City were you trying to sleep? Or maybe that's the point. It is rather late at night after all.

Why else would a jester be sitting atop the carousel playing a violin?

Honestly, if you would all just ask simple questions there are people who can answer them without informing the City of your queries. [Ne holds up a piece of string with several knots in it for emphasis.] Or kinks as the case may be.

Stop being so afraid of things you find interesting and being restricted by such morality. So sad...

[It's taken several minutes to figure out but apparently hitting buttons until something happens works.]

I'm not sure where I am right now but this isn't Yetzirah. Not that anyone is going to miss me.

((Hatter's been de-aged and won't be happy about this come Monday replies will come from [personal profile] withoutvalue . Quick warning: comments may contain self-worth/esteem issues and parental psychological abuse due to Hatter's actual name and meaning.))

[Upon the device's screen is one rather annoyed devil. Sure ne'd been having fun earlier playing on the fears of a few people over the network, but still...There is a difference between being feared because of who ne is and being feared for something ridiculous like what is going on today.]

One is a jester not a clown. [There is a difference. Deal with it.]

Consider this your only warning. One is armed with far more dangerous items than balloon animals for those who wish to argue the difference.

[Like the black feather ne just tossed into the wall behind nem, before it blew up.]

20 August 2013 @ 03:57 pm
[Like any good (don't laugh) mother...parent, Hatter keeps a check on anyone July happens to talk to often going back over his network conversations to verify no one is bothering the boy and that no one knows about his talent. Strangely enough, something odd seems to overcome nem when ne comes across one between July and Penny.

When the video kicks on, ne's visible creating roses (from thin air) of various colors unsure which will do. Red would be a bit cliched.

How appropriate One wonders?  The color is the question however which to use...

[There may be a familiar tilt to nir attitude that a few might notice or recall from the time a certain Lord of hell was around as well.

Sometime later in the day several of the flowers shall be found all around the Welcome Center.]

24 July 2013 @ 11:10 pm
[Ne's too tired and not exactly looking nir best at the moment but a mother with a sick child is allowed, right? So this is strictly a vocal plea. Or rather a demand...ne's lost too many ne sort of, kind of, cares about to let another go.]

One has need of glass. It matters not the color, shape, size or if even whole.

Just tell the location. [Or else pretty much goes unstated but understood...mainly that any glass in the City is going to be disappearing one way or another if ne doesn't get it.]

Tick, tock! Tick, tock!
Forty ’leven by the clock.
Tick, tock! Tick, tock!

Put your ear to Grandpa’s ticker,
Like a pancake, only thicker.
Tick, tock! Tick, tock!

Catch a squirrel in half a minute,
Grab a sack and stick him in it.
Tick, tock! Tick, tock!

Mister Bunny feeds on honey,
Tea, and taters—ain’t it funny?
Tick, tock! Tick, tock!

When he goes to bed at night,
Shoves his slippers out of sight;
That is why Old Fox, the sinner,
Had to go without his dinner.

Tick, tock! Tick, tock!
So says Grandpa’s clock.


One wonders then just what it is the City's clock is saying?  Louder and more demanding than normal is it not? Tick, tock, tick, tock.

[Ne's not going to hold out any hope at all, but it is one of those weekends it seems and so something should be said.]

The wards on the castle have not been changed of late. [Invitation enough for those the words would be directed toward. If ne believed it possible.]

Even if so many other things have.
22 June 2013 @ 05:56 pm
[There is a rather annoyed (no, let's change that) a very pissed off harlequin showing on your devices City. The room ne's in has been trashed--books and papers are thrown everywhere, glass shattered on the floor, the drapery is shredded and most of the furniture is askew.

But don't think this is some accidental post. No, this is quite on purpose and it is not the usual, cheerful tones that come when ne speaks.]

Stealing away what does not belong to you only promises suffering. There are better and safer ways to make an enemy if that is what you wanted. Freeing a chained soul is not the best of ways.
09 June 2013 @ 10:18 pm
How annoying. What should be expected next...fire and brimstone?

[ The feed is blurred and badly-framed. Tangles of red hair. Glimpses of Li's scowling face. The clink-clink of chains. Someone is clearly on the move, and jostling the device. After a moment of vertigo-inducing struggle, Li says, with effort, ]

Funny. I didn't think -- anything could make you twitch and squawk so much.

Not unless it came with batteries.

[ Oy, get your minds out of the gutter. They aren't up to anything. Mad Hatter just seems to have ants in nir pants, ever since the clock struck midnight. There's a longer pause -- more struggling -- before Li manages to reach for the device. His palm covers the lens as he switches it off -- but not before asking, ]

You're not turning into a pumpkin, are you? [ More hopeful than concerned. At least if one half of this handcuffed duo is a pumpkin, the other half can eat. ]

[ ooc: Part 2 of the Handcuffed! curse. Starring one jerkass assassin and one skittish Satan of Pride 8( As always, threadjacking is mightily encouraged! ]
Current Mood: annoyed

[Someone has, quite literally, woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Not only that, ne's not alone and not by choice as the video shows a rather grumpy 'Li' in bed next to nem.]

Normally One does not mind waking with a bed-mate. It makes for an interesting start of the day. [Not this time.]

But uninvited and unwanted guests do cause a lot of work when One has to reestablish the wards upon the castle. [Hey deities, can you stop sending in the jerk? Please?]

[There's no need to make this next part private given he's been here before and is already aware of the others living there. Ne holds up nir hand to
show off the cuff connecting the two.

It seems we have a guest for the day.
24 April 2013 @ 01:31 pm
[What is one to do after discovering several images around the City? Most are sure to happily give them to those who appear within the pictures and wish them a pleasant day with their memories. Most are not devils out to cause mischief or trying to obey nearly impossible orders.]

Such interesting morsels dropped upon us this day.

[In nir hands ne's holding several photographs one or two that might be partially visible on screen--not the full images of course, that would be playing nir hand too soon.]

Some are downright scandalous even. Perhaps we are lucky some have left the City after all. Some of us in any case.

[filtered to Gabriel]

One does wonder which he believes is present here. Just who is the kiss for?

((images are available
here, or someone is always free to find anything of Hatter and generic angel #_____________ of either gender))

16 April 2013 @ 03:50 pm

[Ne's been watching all the commotion on the network with everyone showing off their items, listing prices and taking bids. Pathetic. Mammon would be beside himself with glee and that alone is enough to make nem nauseous at the display.]

Such greedy, gaudy things you are. Showing off the prized possessions of your hard work as if wealth were worth...well [ne laughs, too amused at it all] it's weight in gold. Beware becoming too attached, for all is easily taken in the blink of an eye.
03 April 2013 @ 02:12 am
[Have an amused jester properly lounging on a couch with a bright purple not iguana sitting on nir chest.]

Have you learned to control them yet or is the City still in a fit over animals being themselves? Troublesome...then again, aren't all animals, even those who think themselves so superior?

When one is treated like the creature it is, one is easier to tame.

29 March 2013 @ 11:52 am
[There's a little purple dragonette sitting on Hatter's fingers biting at one of nir nails.]

What a shame the little princess isn't around to enjoy these. She'd be most useful once they grow bigger.

11 March 2013 @ 05:17 pm
A word of advice to those who seem to matter in these things...a curse works best when both parties get something they want in the situation, not just one side. If you truly wish to torment someone taking away what they want hurts more than things they never wanted in the first place.

[Setsuna has Hatter practically in his lap, cuddling up to nem. He gives Hatter a bright smile, focusing only on nem. Yes, he’s aware the device is on, he simply doesn’t care. He places a hand on Hatter’s thigh, and speaks in an amused, insistent tone:]

Go on. You tell them. [Nuzzles Hatter’s cheek.]

[Ne's been looking at Setsuna the whole time a smile upon nir face and when he nuzzles closer ne turns away slightly with a laugh. Instead of immediately saying anything, ne just lifts nir left hand to the device showing off a particular ring, nir fingers wiggling to make sure there is enough attention brought to it.]

It looks like everyone's invited to a wedding. [That done, ne turns back to Setsuna, looking at him through batting eyelashes.

Isn't he just the sweetest thing?

No, you are. [And, how about an eskimo kiss for good measure? Yeah, Setsuna will even go there, trying to nuzzle his nose against Hatter’s, just as the feed shuts off.]

[ooc: Setsuna = blue, Hatter = green. Cursed with Family Day, but in the engagement phase of it.]

[and several minutes later: Hello City, you're being greeted at the moment by a rather upset jester.]

Has anyone seen a little boy around today? [Ne realizes that may be a bit too broad a question for some.] This particular one. [image file of July because yes ne does have one...what?] He is not where he should be, answering his device, nor is he in the Hall of the Missing. [Ne checked, don't bother nem with stupidity please.]

If by some chance, something...untoward has happened to him [looking at you Karl] do be aware there shall, as the saying goes, be the devil to pay. [Specifically one very pissed off Satan of Pride. Those who've only seen the fool may be in for a shock.]

((note: July has just gone out and is perfectly fine, but this is not something he would normally do. Feel free to have seen him in the City by himself. A post with the explanation of where and what he was doing will be up later.))
