I hope you all had a very happy Christmas time. That your gifts were wonderful as well.

[He has his own being sent to his son. It's a little late but it took time to make sure that he got the the perfect doll replica of a certain girl love from home for him.]

And may you all have a happy new year as well.

Welcome to the City, my friends.

Do enjoy your stay.

Do entertain us.

[Alexis is standing there with a cup of tea, looking out over the City. It seems he positioned his device somewhere to capture him looking just like this. There is a small smile on his lips as he lifts his cup to his lips for a sip before speaking.]

The real tragedy here is that I desire a piece of someone but that person is not available to me. I have considered finding a way but I suppose that is best left for another day and another time.

[He slides his dark gaze over to the device then turns to walk toward it.]

Eyes, hair, skin, teeth... Is there anything one would not take from someone in the very end? I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on that actually.

[He sets the cup down, lifts the device up.]

Enjoy your day.

[The connection ends.]

What fine skills you all display today.

I do hope they linger awhile.

It would be a shame for them all to go away.

For things to return to being a trial.

Yesterday's events made tea making quite the challenge. Fortunately, I do have some very good neighbors who were willing to assist me.

[He blackmailed them.]

Let us hope we will keep our water for awhile this time, shall we?

It is good to have so many guests here. What a gift after the last month, wouldn't you agree? Enjoy the time with your loved ones for that reason. This really should just be a celebration.

[He pauses a moment before continuing.]

Hopefully it isn't just the eye of the storm.

Such a busy month we have been having. Arrests, ban on powers, breakouts... It is certain we have avoided being bored, of that I am certain.

[There's a small puff as he were...smoking?]

The month has yet to finish as well. I do wonder what else is in store for the good citizens of this place.

Do take care. I will pray for your safety.

Once upon a time
a man borrowed a fairy tale book.

Now how could that be a crime?
Would that get a second look?


[ooc: As usual, all answers from him will be anon text even if I might not specifically say so.]

The curses have been delightful, no?
So enlightening, yes?

I wonder what else they will show.
Can you take a guess?

It was so good of the City to provide me with the opportunity to spend some quality time with my son. In a way, I feel as if we are closer than ever despite how far apart we are now.

[He chuckles softly and then there is the small crackle that comes from something burning. A deep breath and then a release of air.]

Hopefully we will have another chance in the future.

Would you enjoy that as well, Cain?
14 February 2013 @ 03:18 pm
How nice that people can celebrate a day like this on romantic gondolas. Hopefully people will take advantage of the opportunity.

Then again, there are always rebellious children in every crowd.

[He hums a bit.]

I probably should have sent chocolates to my friends here. My apologies for not doing so.

[ooc: No one but Cain got chocolates. Enjoy those, son.]

Thus begins a new year and let us all hope it leads us to places better than the last. After all, last year loved ones were lost, hurt, killed by a string of crimes that horrified us. At the time I could only be grateful no one precious to me was lost.

[Can you just hear the smile in his tone?]

Let us all begin again and use this fresh start to welcome friends and family, yes?

It would be a crime not to when we have no idea how long our time with them will last.

Private to Cain )

The curses of late have been rather entertaining, very seasonal. Though, I think today might have provided me with the most entertainment.

Memories of the past are quite a treasure, especially of time spent with the family.

I have to wonder how many would agree with that though.
03 November 2012 @ 01:41 pm
What a pleasant surprise to have you all back here. It's been a little while since your last visit.

Now, is there anyone I know out there? I'd be very interested in a little visit.
25 October 2012 @ 01:16 pm
It's quite the pity that I will be too busy to come see the festivities while they are in town. They do look like they could put on a party that would be worthwhile to me. Ah well, I am sure that you all will delight me with your videos of the events that transpire to give me ideas for potential parties in the future.

[There's the clinking of a glasses against each other followed by the sound of liquid pouring.]

That is an advantage of these rather advanced devices. They always provide me with windows into your worlds, even some worlds that people would like to keep private.

It's rather difficult to keep track of who everyone is friendly with, after all.

[That may or may not be a shot at you, Cain.]

Anyway, I apologize for my absence from the City. I have had some business elsewhere to attend to. However, I will be sure to fully return soon.
18 September 2012 @ 09:37 pm
How nice that we can all celebrate in this place.

Through dance.

Through love.

Through friendship.

In the darkest times we might find the light and in the storms we might find the calm that follows.

Let us see how long it lasts before chaos reigns again.

[Alexis is sitting in a chair while a couple of women fuss over his appearance. Behind him, there's a guy with a boom mic, getting ready for the shot they're about to take. This is all rather amusing.]

I appear to have some uninvited guests who seem very interested in my life. Unfortunately, they are becoming very frustrated since I haven't done anything worth noting for their footage. At least, this is what they've told me.

[He glances at them.]

The Life and Wonder of Alexis Hargreaves. An intriguing title but I'm afraid that I'm rather dull.

Pity for them.
15 July 2012 @ 01:38 pm
[Alexis is enjoying his time in his study, enjoying the view from the window. This probably isn't the most unusual thing. However, he has a beautiful black wolf at his side. For the time being, he is just stroking her head and she seems content with this.]

Things are progressing well.

That is to be expected.

[He laughs softly.]

You're right.

[He glances at his device.]

I would like to introduce you all to my companion. It appears that she will be lingering for the rest of this curse. A pity she can't stay longer, don't you think?
17 June 2012 @ 05:36 pm
A day which honor's fathers and all that they happen to mean to the world. They are part of the backbone of a family, even if some children might not agree.

I have been blessed with children of my own throughout my life. Some have lived longer than others but I suppose that tends to happen to some and I must mourn their loss all the same. What a blessing though that I have the ones left to me.

Then again, I doubt that one would ever consider dining with me on a day that honors me.

My Precious City,

I must come seeking advice from all of you on this day. There is something that had been troubling me for sometime and I fear that it is not likely to end so soon. While I am certain that I can push forward and still have great success, I must still see what words of wisdom you can offer for this little problem that I have come to face.

In this case, there is a woman, the most beautiful woman I have ever beheld. Once I was able to hold her in my arms but she has been stolen from me. I confess that my feelings for her are true and long for her to be at my side once more. However, this where the problem comes into being. For you see, there is one would wishes to keep the two of us parted. At times, I do not think he realizes what it is he is doing but I know that he does enjoy being an obstacle.

Could it be so wrong to love her in a way that causes me to want to return to her side? To bring her back into my waiting arms?

One would think that this would be a natural reaction. Yet, I doubt that he would agree. My precious, precious City, what should I do in this situation?

I humbly and patiently await your advice.

My Eternal Gratitude,
The Lover

[ooc: Honestly, he isn't even cursed. He's just enjoying this day.]
