Blue Lady: Scene 2

March 14, 2003

Soul(ST Style): *claimed for a Junkyard scene*

Kylie Wallace: * sticks pole in fantasy land* this be ours!

Soul(ST Style): To get the standard disclaimer out of the way: This scene is lethal, as all scenes I run are.

Kylie Wallace: * bounices all happy from the chinese food the wine coolers * yep yep yep.....

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): ((Mmm...Kahlua...))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:*claims the room the manly way in the corner*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing that the others are going to a certain style club he thanks the gods for spare clothes and car trunks.*Jurg you know how to drive a car?

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Jason on the way to the club* Okay any clues you wanna share from this vision you had?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Sitting quietly as they go. Uncharacteristically so*

Soul(ST Style): ((Also, if there are any questions or concerns, please hold them until the end of the scene. I'll have a point where I'll be open to any discussions people care to have after the scene is over. And now, on with the show.))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: martin>>*chuckles. evilly?* am I capable of making it go? yes, very. You don't got a spare pair of leather pants do ya? or some chaps I can pull over my jeans?

Kylie Wallace: * cues the twlight zone theme music*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *In le car* The vision was, well, shy on details. Just said the answers I sought were in the past. I'd be for looking at the stained glass windows, maybe memorial plaques. There's a converted church in Denver, kinda similar actually.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *listens to the briefing*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:Assuming they all piled into the same car

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg. and his Size.* Let me check.*Digs in his car trunk.* I have these.*Pulls out a pair of old black leather pants.* Its the best i can do. Lets get dressed for this.*Sighs.* And you think they would have told me they needed these kind of things. I have everything at home. And now i cant take pictures of us.*Sighs.*

Kylie Wallace: * yeah there in the same car..Kylie rented a mini van with some minor details as flames on the side yadda yadda*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Watches the lights go by, and go by, and go by...*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie, you did get insurance on this thing, right?

Kylie Wallace: Jason> okay hope Linda's not to pissed about playing warder but since you've had a connection you should be the one to be going with us

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He gets himself ready as fast as he can.* ITs last minute but i wont complain.*Pulls uphis leather pants and slips on a Black shirt with Lady Death on the back of it. And slips on his leather coat over. And starts working on spiking up his hair.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Martin>>I think that was the plan. *blah blah, pulls the leathers on over his jeans, blah blah, removes the chain and lock to put through the belt loops of the leather pants. and slipping that in before they carpool, presumably*

Kylie Wallace: Uhh insurance? umm I think so * no she didn't but she's not gonna tell him that..not in the mood for the responcible lecture*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Maybe someone should tell Linda that's the reason when we get back, huh?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>What, that I'm following up on a vision? You mean you didn't tell her?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie.* This Club is related to the Wolfs and Twomoons Visions right? You guys know anything about Blue Lady?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *shakes his head a little*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* No one told us anything up to when you guys Just decided to go.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Holds her hand up* My bad. That and the exile. All my bads.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Bad Val.

Kylie Wallace: Jason...she answers to you're the one to tell her Marty> yeah Jason had this vision about this church and the vision spoke to him telling him the answers lie in the past..sooo I took some time got the shit scared outta me at the libary looking up info about narrowing down this church...I t was freaky this place wanted to be found and so now we're gonna follow up on this place and see if we can find anything more out

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty>>Nobody asked.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *presumably in the back seat, not wanting to be in the middle of the banter. Reaches up and unfastens his spiked collar, wrapping it around the ankle of his boot for that nice spiky look*

Kylie Wallace: Marty> well this is basicly one of those boring things...just seeking info about the place....Val> quidit

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to Kylie.* I wonder if this is the same club i heard about.*Scratches his chin.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Flips down the vanity mirror* Shit, my eyeliner's smudged. Anyone got any black or purple lipstick?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Val>>yes. you've been very naughty. Now for the spanking. *pops his neck and looks out the window*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Checks her complexion in the mirror. Yep, pale enough tonight for Goth.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty>>How many clubs that are converted churches are there in this town?

Kylie Wallace: Marty > I don't know I just read some newspaper stuff about how the place is rumored to be haunted...

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Twomoons> You look like Philippe. // Jurg> You ain't got my special spanker, so forget it.

Kylie Wallace: Ummm you guys know anything about ghosts? * as she's driving*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie> Excluding Casper? Basically nothing.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Val>>yer right, last I heard he was bein' made to be the Shadderlord's slave. Couldn't manage to bring him... sorry, I'll remember next time.

Soul(ST Style): ((In the interests of speeding things up, since we started late, does anyone have any objections to fast-forwarding through the driving process and just assume everyone got there in appropriate attire? If people want to play through it, that's fine - I've got all night - but I know some of you don't.))

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>Under the circumstances, I'll take that as a compliment.

Kylie Wallace: I hope you guys aren't easily spooked...cuz I have a feeling were gonna that hairs on the back of you neck feeling....

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Jurg> Huh? Slave? He moves along fast.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): ((Fast forward and stuff. *hands Soul the Remote*))

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((I'm cool to move along, Soul. *S*))

Kylie Wallace: ( yeah just driving making conversation till we got to the place *nods nods* can fast forward*)

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Kylie>>that patrick swayze sucks, they come back when they die bad... uh, something about ectoplasm, cold spots. on autopilot to do somethin' havin' to do with their death. *hooray for occult1 and unsolved mysteries*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to Twomoons.* I have some in my stuff.*Finishing working himself up.* And as for the Church bars. i couldnt say. But i would say verry few. As for if the place is hunted. It could be. Kids lately been talking about a mysterious lady. Was related to some deaths around the area too. and all the people who had died came from the same Club.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:*gets blurred lines as he's fast forwarded*

Soul(ST Style): ((Okay. Moving along...)) The club rises out of the night like an ancient behemoth, squatting there on the very outskirts of town like a beast preparing to crouch. The building itself is a traditional gothic cathedral - a beautiful old building, but one that seems to be crumbling. Its gargoyles, leering faces gazing off into the dark sky, crumble, and the corners of the buttresses are broken in several places. Jarringly, however, a red neon sign flashes over the door, reading "Sanctuary", with the 't' altered to look like a crucifix, and a security camera gazes down at the stairs unblinkingly. The heavy wooden doors are unguarded; no bouncers wait outside, and no line of people stretches around the block. The stained glass windows are whole and clean, depicting Biblical or Biblically-inspired scenes from the Bible in a beautiful style; the one that sticks out is directly over the door and is a picture of Daniel entering the lion's den. ((More))

Kylie Wallace: * she frowns hearing Martin's info* Oh damn

Soul(ST Style): A few cars and motorcycles are parked in the cracked wasteland of asphault that serves as a parking lot, and something with pounding bass pours out from inside the club. The entire area smells of concrete, glass, and steel - no natural life is here, not even small plants struggling through cracks in the pavement.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty>>Oh. Sounds utterly lovely. Who needs cover?

Kylie Wallace: * she eyes the place and shivers a bit* ooooooo I need a drink

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the name of the Club and looks at them.* Oh gods. This is the place.*And yes he does have a natural pale complexion now. And he breaths slowly.*

Kylie Wallace: * she slowly pulls into the parking lot and stops the van and shuts it off*

Kylie Wallace: I guess me and Val will do an quick umbra check?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Hops out, checking himself over one more time before activating Persuasion.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: It's a club. Nothing to fear, right? Let's keep that in mind.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quietly* Peek, don't cross.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *being a child of the night (beautfiul music, my ass, Vlad), he's not horribly pale, but there's no tan there. Light complexioned anyway*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* I can go This side in the club and check things out.*Looks at the place. and Whispers.* I hope your on my side My lady.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *Steps out of the van... Visage of Fenris? mmm. nah.*

Kylie Wallace: * she hops out of the van and looks at herself in the side mirrior* Ohhhh key let's go peps

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He Follows himself and makes sure everything is in place. His body odor is gone. And he takes in a deep breath calling upon his natural social skills.(( persuasion))*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Relaxes against the back of the seat and peeks* ((Roll?))

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Nods* Do it. We'll be in in about 5.

Soul(ST Style): ((No rolls. And FWIW, don't bother rolling for anything unless I ask you to. Assume you succeed at anything requiring a roll with a moderate level of success unless I say otherwise.)) The Umbra around the church is still. The entire area looks dead - no urban spirits run around, not even rat-spirits or similar survivors. But the church seems somehow more real, more vital, as though it exists more than its surroundings, which seem hazy and unreal by comparison.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *leaves the gun in the van, under the seat just in case of metal detectors or frisking*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Eyes refocus* It's like it's spiritually infused, itself almost. The building. No other spirits are around. Now I feel really good about this. *Wryly, as she gets out and goes after Kylie*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Whispers.* If i had more time i could have gotten my self a nice top hat and tail coat for Twomoons.*Smirks.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *whispers back* I don't do tail coats. Too feminine. *Giving Marty a reasonable amount of time to go in and scout before heading in himself*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *waits on Val, Kylie and TM, joining them on the trek for the door*

Kylie Wallace: * she heads for the door frowning a bit mentaly talking to herself..I am a brave garou..I am a brave garou*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Goes for the club itself with a serene posture.*

Soul(ST Style): Martin heads through the doors and notices something...Strange. The club is entirely deserted. No bartender serves drinks. No bouncers stand near the doors. No people populate the metal grating that serves as a dance floor. The club is entirely, eerily empty, even though the music pumps loudly and the lights flash in time with the bass.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *looks over at Kylie... pauses, grunts and clears his head....somehow things just look less intimidating with Jurg around. or something like that.* OOC:belched away a gnosis for Inspiration

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the Scene and quirks an eye and looks around.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Steps up with Kylie and goes inside* . . . Martin, is something missing here?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Quietly* Well. This place is dead. *Someone had to say

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at twomoons.* I dont think so. The lights are being opertated some how. And the DJ is rather good.

Kylie Wallace: * she looks like a fish her mouth gaping open and close*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: I'm waitin' to see some tumble-weed smokers and someone trippin' on Exitscy

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie. You ~are~ a brave Garou.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Walks into the club some more. Looking around.*

Kylie Wallace: * she closes her mouth and looks to Val frowning*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Good lights and a slamming DJ don't seem to be everything in a club, apparently. Who wants a drink? *Looking for a barstand*

Soul(ST Style): The interior of the church is dark. Dangling from the rafters all around are long chains swaying gently from some unseen breeze, the soft clinking drowned out by the throbbing of the music. The floor is nearly cleared - the pews have been removed and replaced with round tables. Patches of flooring have been removed, replaced with metal grating, the largest patch of such being the dance floor. The only thing that makes this place appear churchlike is the altar in the middle of the room(covered with half-finished drinks), the large, cloth-draped crucifix hanging in the back, and the stained glass windows. The windows themselves, though, are distinctly blasphemous, with scenes no sane person could ever imagine. A bank of monitors shows static near the dance floor.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: You now, when I find a place empty, the first thing I usually think is "This place is about to explode". Anyone else?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the place and and resists the urge of taking his Camera.*SHould we ask to see if anybody is here?

Kylie Wallace: * she glances around and heads for the tables and spies the drinks and picks one up and then looks around*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *shrugs... grabs an empty drink, eyes it and takes a gulp so long as its not a fruity girly drink*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>C'mon, let's keep a little optimism here. *Looking for a barstand, DJ table, and quirking an eyebrow at the waste of booze on the altar*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:er. half empty, not empty. He's a pessimist, not fatalist

Kylie Wallace: * she is soo tempted to drink but sets it down* Something had to of spooked these people out of here...the music left on....drinks half gone

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Looks through the glass side of a liquor bottle on examining the bar* Persephone ate the seeds of the pomegtanate offered to her by the lord of the dead, and was condemned to remain in the land of the dead as his bride. I'm not having any drinks.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to see how long ago people were here. Passing his hand on a counter checking for dust.*

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Val* Ohhh your such a cheerful one aincha? * chukles*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val, if that's optimism, remind me not to talk to you when you're feeling pessimistic.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Val>>you want some of my home brew instead? *pats his jacket*

Soul(ST Style): Behind the Garou, the heavy wooden doors swing shut slowly. A gust of cold wind filters through the club, making the large cloth covering the crucifix flutter. The most perceptive note that it appears the red, velvety cloth is covering a door directly beneath the crucifix. The barstand is tucked in one corner of the room; the bar is surprisingly small, but well-stocked. The DJ table appears to be up a short flight of stairs near the barstand. No one sits there.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Them.* Well look at it this way. WE wanted to check this place out. Seem we can do it all on our own. No one to get in our way.*Looks for the DJ table.* Want me to turn down the Volume?

Kylie Wallace: * she gets a shiver and glances around eyeing the red cloth*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Shrugs at the assembled* Hey, it's just a myth, right? No thanks on the homebrew too.

Soul(ST Style): ((Nah. 3+.))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Martin>>hell, switch it for some Pantera. I'm in the mood for "Cemetary Gates" right now. maybe "Cowboys from hell" *looks over his shoulder at the door shutting behind them. just the wind. shrugs*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quirks an eyebrow, folding his arms briefly before touching the tip of his nose* ~ps~ someone else wanna peek with me?

Kylie Wallace: * she heads over to the red cloth hesitantly and reaches out to touch it like it would bite her or something*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *jerks his head over at the altar and the cloth, heading that way* hey y'all, check this shit out

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the Closing doors and nods.* I am sure that does doors are locked. WHo wants to go check?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *Y'all being Marty, TM and Val*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Looks around one more time before peeking, looking at the door*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ~PS~ I'll look at Jurg's thing

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Walks to join Jurg* What do you see?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): ~ps~ Ewwww..

Soul(ST Style): The red cloth is heavy - very heavy. Kylie wonders how much the entire sheet must weigh - it must be tremendous. With some effort, it can be moved aside, however, revealing a door marked "PRIVATE".

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at it after touching it and hesitantly decides to do a sence wyrm of the area she's in*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Move to The main doors that were slowly blown closed to check them.*

Kylie Wallace: ( okay delete that post for now)

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts* it'd piss you off if I said "dead people", right? *jerks his head from Val to the cloth Kylie's approaching like a venomous snake* that. Check under it.

Kylie Wallace: * she slowly pushes the cloth to the side and backs up holding it not sure what's behind it and peers up and see the Private* oooooo * she sounds a bit releaved nothing jumped out at her ...yet*

Soul(ST Style): As Twomoons peeks, he notices that the church is nearly pulsing with spiritual energy. But it's no spiritual energy he recognizes. Without question not part of Gaia, but also not bearing the mark of any of the rest of the Triat. It's dark, and somehow seems...Sharp is the only way to describe it, a feeling of sharpness. Each Garou present suddenly feels a chill sweep through their minds, a sort of momentary feeling that feels like spiders in their skulls.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As he was checking the door he shivers.* Ooooh. that was cold.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Takes a look under, expecting something, but not attack*

Kylie Wallace: * she drops the cloth and shivers some more* OOO i don't like this

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts as the hairs stand on his neck involuntarily.*

Kylie Wallace: * she pushes the cloth to the side again and takes a breath and tries to open the door by handle or by pushing*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *has very much the eyebrow quirking "WTF" look as something finally falls into the category of "none of the above". Refocuses and joins the rest of the party in the examination of the wooden door, absently wondering if the thief has checked for traps or what*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Breathes shallowly at the feeling in the air with tension*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *A very brief hand-flexing* ~ps~ Mongo not like.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Bangs on the doors.* Guys!

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *turns to look to martin* yo?

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Marty* why are you banging on the door?

Soul(ST Style): The door swings open easily. Inside is what would normally be the room where the priest prepares for mass. Instead, it has been converted to an office. The entire office is very neat - no papers cover the immaculately maintained desk, and nary a speck of dust can be found anywhere. In the back of the room, a stone doorway is set and a set of spiral stairs curves away into darkness.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Backs away from the mains doors and takes defensive stance and looks all around.* I got bad news.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Walks backwards looking at the main door.* There is no way out.

Kylie Wallace: * looks at Marty* what you suck at being stealthy?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Peers after Kylie* Oh, that just isn't nice looking. A crypt?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Martin>>whadaya mean there's no way out?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *joining up ith the group* Marty>>Yeah there is. Down. *indicates the spiral staircase.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Martin> What? We got in, didn't we?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg.* The main Doors. ITs not a door anymore.

Kylie Wallace: Marty ..there's always a way out.....I want to look at the recods here..if you guys wanna head downstairs

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty>>You say "It's ajar" and I slap you.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Martin>>ummm?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at them and points to the main doors.* I went to check those. We are shut in. onyl way to go is deeper in.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie, you know, it seems like we're wanted to go that way. Are you okay with that really?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: damn *scratches his head* its like trying partial penetration. *grunts and looks down the stairs* anyone mind the cannon fodder going first?

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at the all* I told you..I told you about this place being's like it's messing with us like something messed with me at the libary * she sounds a little spooked herself*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to Twomoons.* Rhya with all respect i am not kidding you. WE got invited in. But we seem to be guests till the owner is finished with us.

Kylie Wallace: * she nods* Yeah I need to find out if there's any like recods of owners and articles about stuff happening with this place.....

Soul(ST Style): The song that's currently blaring ends, and silence fills the club. No song cues up after that one. The only sound is the faint jingling of chains bumping into each other.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Them.* Just so you guys think. Lets try to stay together.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie, you, Jurg, and Marty check the doors. Val and I'll sack the office. 3 minutes, then we all take the stairs.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quiety* Enjoy the siilence..

Kylie Wallace: * she stops moving and blinks and shivers* Ooooo that is just ....ooooo * she then busies herself with going to any file cabinets

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* Want me to take pictures?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Bear shirt.. guaranteed warmth against spooky chills. *shrugs and starts heading for the doors with marty and Kylie

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: That's actually better, the silence. More like the church it used to be and easier to hear ourselves think.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quirks an eyebrow* hoookay. Men check doors, women check office. How much film you got Marty?

Kylie Wallace: * she frowns as she was looking for something in particular* Okay okay * she heads to the now gone doors*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Heading for the doors. The weirdness factor growing, oh yes indeedy...*

Soul(ST Style): After a moment, there's a strange sound from the speakers- anyone familiar with it recognizes that of a victrola being prepared. Then, a song starts to play, an old, scratchy version of 'Ragtime Gal' that sounds as if it's coming from across a great distance.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Steps into the office and starts leafing through the top papers*

Kylie Wallace: * she sighs* Make up my fucking mind Jason....* she heads back in the office and starts to look around in anyCabinets? file drawers?*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *rumbles in his throat* great. Who here's got the shining? *cracks his knuckles, eyes narrowing slightly and looking around for the source*

Kylie Wallace: * she stops and listens to the music*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Opens his coat and shows the amount of Film rolls wich dont include his bag.* I have enough.

Soul(ST Style): The papers in the office are mostly unremarkable - financial transactions and receipts, for the most part. Nothing immediately jumps out at the searchers as being particularly important. One of the bottom cabinets, marked 'Old records', is locked, however.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Chuckles nervously and mutters* Hello my baby, hello my honey, hello my ragtime gal. Send me a kiss by wire....*and can't remember more*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Ragtime Gal? When the #*&$^% did this become the 40's and why was he not informed? Flicks a glance at the monitor by reflex*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie, are you any good at opening locks?

Kylie Wallace: * she sighs as this searching helps keep her mind off that old music and she tries to open the bottom draw and it won't budge* Hey Val can you pick locks?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Takes up His camera and looks around and takes a picture of the Crucifix to start with. The music catching him by Surprise.* I know i aint the only one hearing that.

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Val and just grins* ummmm I got a nail file in my bookbag

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: marty>>Unless you're talkin' about the Kenny G shit goin' on right now, then yeah

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Shit. *Grins at Kylie*

Soul(ST Style): Twomoons is the first to notice it. The bank of monitors now displays an image - a child lies in bed, sleeping peacefully. The song coming from the speakers changes - now it's playing a very old lullaby, something from the turn of the century.

Kylie Wallace: * she shruggs* Might as well try it * she unzips her bag and pulls out the nail file and starts to work on the lock

Soul(ST Style): Kylie finds the lock is easier to pick than she'd imagine. Even with her jury-rigged tool, it clicks open with surprising ease.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Hears the mention of lock picking.* Something is locked?*Shivering with the music taking pictures here and there. this one being of the stained windows. as he frowns taking a view of the scenes on them.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *shrugs, takes about three more steps to slam his boot at the doors*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty. Pictures. *not taking his eyes from the monitor bank*

Kylie Wallace: * she grins* ooo jackpot * she pulls the draw open and looks at the contents inside*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((Dratted connection))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Turns to Twomoons and what he is looking at and gasps and goes for a snap shot immediately.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Jeez, I never knew you were a lockpicker.

Kylie Wallace: Val..neither did I ....

Soul(ST Style): Jurg feels like he just kicked a wall of solid steel, the vibration ringing through his body painfully. The image on the monitor shifts, and it's clear: the perspective is that of someone's eyes; viewers are seeing what someone else is seeing. The figure moves forward, and a Crinos arm extends. One talon is dragged across the child's throat, and the perspective mercifully shifts to another child. This one is sitting up straight in bed, looking around in fear. A soft, neutral voice, devoid even of gender, comes from the speakers above. "They begged for mercy.:

Soul(ST Style): Inside the drawer lies a thick leather-bound book. It looks to be at least one hundred years old, and that impression is confirmed when a thin layer of dust is blown off the cover - it is embossed with the words "Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church - 1903".

Kylie Wallace: * she looks up hearing the voice but not able to make out what it said *

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie> Hand me a pile and I'll start looking with you.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts at the impact, limping for a few steps to walk it off; then hs head jerking around quickly to see where the voice is coming from, his eyes finally settling on the monitor TM and Marty are staring at*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* You agree. We are seing the same thing right?

Kylie Wallace: * she holds the book gingerly and her eyes are shining in delight as she looks upon what maybe another clue to the mystery..she even thinks of saying jenkies*

Kylie Wallace: Val..all I see is a book of some sort

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *twitch* If you're seeing a kid being killed from a first-person, then yeah.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Great. Human leather? Skeleton hand clasp?

Soul(ST Style): The second child starts to speak, but the Crinos arm extends again, and his words devolve into a horrible gurgle, though the picture vanishes into blackness. The voice speaks again. "They cried, as they were murdered in their beds. They begged for their mothers. They never knew why their lifesblood spilled. And you couldn't save them. You couldn't even give them the justice their souls scream for even now."

Kylie Wallace: it's just a basic leather bound book....very old * she carefully opens it up to look upon it's contents*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *handclenchage...yep...*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *blinks and starts walking towards the TVs. glances out the corner of his eye to TM* I think they're talkin' to you...

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* Tell me when you want to stop taking pictures as his heart does hold but the scene is just painfull to look at.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Takes a position facing the open hole in the wall and looks at Kylie's find*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Yep.

Soul(ST Style): The book Kylie holds appears to be a personal journal of a priest. The first entry is dated in 1879 or so, detailing the first Mass held in the newly consecrated church. It is very boring and dry after that, however - very little of interest is said until near the end of the book.((More in a moment.))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons Then at Jurg.*

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at the book * Wow 1879? * she gingerly flips through the pages in a sort of skimming *

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Why would the club owner have kept this book in here?

Soul(ST Style): The voice rings out again. "But then, you have a habit of not being able to save people, don't you?" A picture flashes on the screen - all the Garou looking at the monitors recognize Medea. The Black Fury stands, surrounded by gibbering, shrieking shadows with bat ears, bellowing out a challenge. She hurls herself at something off-camera, then there is a flash of silver, and her head rolls back into view. "She died alone. Surrounded by darkness. In agony."

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *his eyes twitch slightly, watching the scene... knowing they're fenrir kin, a low snarl in his throat, though not directed at the sight*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *reaches to the scars on his gut*

Kylie Wallace: It seems to be a journal of the priest who was here when this place was first built....hmmm * she keep leafing through till she reaches the last pages*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *twitchtwitch, deeeeep breath*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Turns at the monitors and freezes himself.* i.....

Soul(ST Style): The most pertinent entries, the last ones, are in 1903. It seems strange things started happening then - workers heard crying coming from the basement, a mother and child. But nothing was there. The manifestations gradually grew more violent, though the exact details aren't disclosed, until everyone was gone but the priest. His last entry indicates that he is going to seal 'it' in, though what 'it' is isn't answered.

Kylie Wallace: * she reads the last entry * It? oh well that's padre....shit......this place is haunted....

Kylie Wallace: damn priest didn't give us any what the fuck..... it?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Reads along with Kylie* Looks like he didn't write any more...

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): ((shoot. Just got paged. Hold off on torturing twomoons for a bit))

Kylie Wallace: * she softly sighs thinking this might be it the answers she was looking for* Mother and child? Blue Lady?...hmmmm

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *wanting very badly to maim TM right now... moreso than usual.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Takes pcitures. HE takes in a deep breath.* Jurg Shut one of the monitors off please. Or un plug it.

Soul(ST Style): "You ABANDONED her. To die, alone. Where were you? Where were you when she sacrificed her life? The same place you always are. You're worthless, you know. Entirely worthless." A new picture comes up on the screen. Everyone recognizes Jurg's mate, Meredith. "You're all worthless. You all abandon those you love. You, Kevin. You abandoned her for a whole year in her time of dire need."

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts.... thinks TM deserves the full brunt of what he gets but makes his way around behind the monitors to yank the plugs on one*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: I'm thinking so. I wonder, can the dead go insane?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *freezes in mid step, ending up a few feet closer to it, and making no move to shut it off. snarls at the TV* abandoned?! FUCK YOU! I left my pack to look for her! *so what if it can't hear him*

Soul(ST Style): Jurg pulls the plug with ease, but nothing happens. Not one of the monitors goes dark. All still show Meredith, who is crying now, sitting alone in some dark place. The voice says in a sing-song fashion, "All alone, in the dark...Would you like to see what her child would have looked like, failure?"

Kylie Wallace: * she looks to Val* The guys are quiet lets go check on them* wuith that she heads out still holding the book*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg and At Twomoons. Goes to shut off a monitor.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:okay, then go with the yanky-no-resulty thing. more freaky. BIC:*snarls and kicks at one of the monitors* FUCK YOU!

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Nods* Let's. *Walks out to see why they're no longer moving around so much*

Kylie Wallace: * she blinks a few times as Jurg speaks to something* What's going on guys?

Kylie Wallace: * she stuffs the book in her bookbag and zips it back up and slides the bag on her shoulder*

Soul(ST Style): Jurg is literally blown back across the room fifteen or twenty feet, his fur smoking. No structural damage is done, but he feels like he was just lit on fire. The voice continues as if nothing happened. "Not all of you abandon those you love, I suppose. Some of you are just so worthless they're abandoned." A picture of a seedy hotel room, where a newborn baby lies alone on the bed, the door to the hotel room hanging open slightly.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Shit, Jurg?

Kylie Wallace: * she gasps at Jurg and she grips her bag's strap* Oh shit....* she then looks at the screen her brow furrowed*

Soul(ST Style): ((Err...Hair, rather. Not fur. Since he didn't change forms and all. *s*))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *is in homid, lands with a clink of chain and some skidding. lies there a second before rolling to his stomach and pushing upright again with a steady growl, his right eye twitching on the scar a bit as he turns back to the TVs*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the monitors And frowns.* Damn what do you want with us?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *lets out a hard grunt and a wince. pops his neck loudly in each direction, eyes locked on the TVs with a snarl*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Since the TV's want them to look that way, she looks the other way to see what's sneaking up on them.*

Soul(ST Style): "Your mother knew what you were going to be, Kylie. And she was so disgusted she abandoned you. She would rather have died than have been with you. Funny, isn't it?" The picture then changes to an image of a woman wearing diving equipment. The woman starts to thrash for a while, then her form explodes into Crinos. "And you, Valerie. Choosing your own life over that of your unborn child. Selfish, selfish." The monitors go dark. "And you all thought yourselves worthy to come here? To my place?"

Kylie Wallace: * she blinks and backs up from the screen* How did it know * she whispers*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Catches the very last of that, and steadfastly looks away, disowning that memory*

Kylie Wallace: * her voice is shaky* No my mother was murdered..she didn't leave me...she loved me

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the Monitor. Then at the Speakers. He looks around.* And do you think you are better then us by torturing us?

Soul(ST Style): The chains start to sway violently, and the voice booms out, suddenly filled with rage that makes even that burning within the breast of Gaia's warriors look like a candle-flame. "I KNOW ALL HERE! THIS IS MY PLACE! AND YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE COME!"

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Grits her teeth at secrets revealed*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Tenses as suddenly as a flinch when the voice booms*

Kylie Wallace: * oh that just brought such a wash of emotions...ones she managed to keep down inside her she starts to back away from the monitors and her head whipping around to look at the chains*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT! *cracks his knuckles as he stalks back towards the TVs... mr subtle and diplomatic*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *and mr oh-so-smart, considering he just got blasted across the room*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Shakes some of it off* We came to help. We're not perfect, but we came to help.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He works hard on keeping his resolve. THink Marty. You made the mistake once you aint going to do it again.*

Soul(ST Style): The chains seem to take on a life of their own, writhing as if manipulated from above. They start to whip the Garou, leaving painful welts, opening small, insignificant, but bleeding wounds in some cases. It becomes clear that it is suicide to stay where they are - the only place free of chains seems to be the office...

Kylie Wallace: * she starts to turn in a circle looking around* Are you the woman in this book?* she pulls out the book and holds it up* and the child crying?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing Jurg Head for the monitors again.* Stop dont do it. She is using us. Dont give in.

Kylie Wallace: * she heads to the office damn if she's gonna be a hellraiser victom*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Shifts to Crinos to better handle the damage and gets low to the floor*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *shifts up to glabro as the chains start whipping, braces the bracers out to the side to catch and stop a few... hopefully*

Soul(ST Style): The voice screams again, the tone rising in pitch steadily. "YOU KNOW NOTHING OF WHAT I AM! YOU UNDERSTAND NOTHING, FAILURE! YOU ARE WORTHLESS, AND NOW YOU ARE MINE!"

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Starts to Go at the Chains.* Valerie Take them to Cover.*Looks to Jurg.* Help them come on move! I will give you time.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *is herded, muttering* Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're not cool, fuck you, I'm outty...

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Ow.

Kylie Wallace: *she is in the office* That is what the priest wrote about...that is the it...* she paces* we have to go downstairs 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Shoulders the worst of it, but dashes to the office making the door bigger if she has to*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: I ain't NOBODy'S! an' i sure as FUCK don' gotta defend myself to some cowardly Poltercunt BITCH! Show yer fuckin' self!

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie>>The priest wrote about chains dangling from the ceiling? Say ~what!?~

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Goes Glabro* 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at the stairwell and doesn't wait for the others she heads down the stairwell big book in her clutches* 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *thwapclang.. thwapclang.. thwapthwap THWORP... oh, that's a wet one. Thwap ClANG. Starts backing away towards the office*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to Jurg.* Jurg they need you to help. I got you covered Go!

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Raises his Voice* ~JURG~, The bitch ain't gonna show herself, cause she can kill you with just the fucking chains! Now get in here!

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Shifting to Crinos and getting wacked seriously but working at attracting them.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As they move he follows behind.* 

Kylie Wallace: * she stops logic reacheing her and she starts to trun back to wait for the others and then she looks down and * oooooo damn what do I do

Soul(ST Style): The chains seem to be growing more vicious, and strangely, even a little sharp - it seems that the links are gaining razor edges. Blood flows freely from the Garou still in the main room. ((No game effects just yet, but it hurts. A lot.))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *shifts to crinos, dropping to all fours and loping for the office*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: ~HT~ PUSSY!

Kylie Wallace: * she does a short curse and heads down the stairwell without the others her doom....dadum dummmmm* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quietly* We wait, and we hang tough. Whatever it is, it knows that she can't beat us if we stay a solid group. That's why she was singling each of us out, she wants to break us.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Claws at the chains as he make it to the office and makes sure they are all inside before closing the door.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie, Stay up here! 

Soul(ST Style): Kylie looks around the basement. It appears to be a storage area - cases full of bottles of various types of alcohol fill the room. The only thing out of place is at the end of the room - a sledgehammer lies there, and there is a hole in the wall at the end of the room. Small, but black. Oddly, a stale breeze emanates from the tiny hole.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): me from psycho theurges...c'mon...*bolts down the stairs himself*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: not leavin' 'er.. *shoulders the door unless he gets held back by enough, wanting to go give Kylie some backup*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Kylie, dammit. She scares me. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *guess that means he's free to bolt down the stairs* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks to Jurg. Then to the others seing Twomoons go down the stairs.* HT: So much for staying together.

Kylie Wallace: * she grips the book as if it will help sheild her like a priest who has no faith but still thinks the bible will protect him* Hmmmm * she slowly steps toward the end of the room and reaches the peeky hole and slowly leans forward to look inside hoping noone pokes her eyes out*

Soul(ST Style): The chains thunder from outside the office. Something tears above, and then crashes violently to the ground in front of the door; probably the heavy sheet of velvet.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>She scares the shitpisscuntcocksuckermotherfuckertits outta me....

Soul(ST Style): Kylie sees...Something...Flash within, light glinting off of metal. She can't make out what it is, and the hole is too small for even the most delicate hand to fit in.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at them and take the time to make sure he is heard.* HT KYLIE! Get back here you gonna GET KILLED!

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: So, who dares me to look into the Umbra? *Not joking, not lighthearted in the slightest*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *SHifts slowly back down to Homid.* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>Double dog dare. 

Kylie Wallace: * she blinks and looks down at the sledghammer and slips the book back into her bag and grabs the sledhammer and shifts to glabro and takes a deep breath* Please let me strike true and she closes her eyes and tries to hit the wall*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Concentrates, unfocuses on the here and now, and Peeks* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Covering self as Kylie tries to hit the broad side of...a wall* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Goes to search for Kylie as the others are busy.* KYLIE! 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *growls on all fours as Kylie whips out a sledgehammer* ~HT~ that was stupid of you!

Soul(ST Style): The bricks start to crumble. A shriek of rage vibrates down from upstairs, and the cases of alcohol start to explode, spraying shards of glass everywhere. But it's clear - there's something on the other side of the wall. However, the broken glass starts to pick itself up and spin, forming a vortex of glittering, razor-sharp shards of glass...

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg.* Grab her for Gaias sake. she isnt even listenning. Stop her before she end up maybe killing us.

Kylie Wallace: * as people come to find out as her packmates already do when Kylie is in curiostiy mode she is a woman possessed in finding the answers she seeks*

Kylie Wallace: ( and for claification Kylie was in the basement before anyone started yelling for her *G*) 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts and rushes forward to grab the sledgehammer from Kylie since she's so distracted. at least keep it from swinging if not getting her to let go*

Soul(ST Style): Val sees a sight that will stay with her forever. The strange sharp sensation Twomoons experienced is now a full-blown vortex. A black hole in the Umbra, a space of seething nothingness, pours out dark, glittering energy. In the space of the hole, faces can be seen, stretching outwards for a moment, then reforming. For a moment, Val sees a face that has a heartbreaking resemblance to her own, but then it is gone.

Kylie Wallace: * she keeps trying to hit the wall knowing something has to do with this all behind it* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Shakes himself off a little, taking a once-around look* OKay, that pissed it right the fuck off....

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *trying to wrench the hammer from Kylie* 

Soul(ST Style): The wall seems to collapse even more, as though something unseen is aiding Kylie. There seems to be an alcove behind the wall, and as Kylie hammers the wall again, more bricks fall loose, and the vortex of glass starts to falter.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing the glass fly around he takes his leather coat to shield his head from it.* 

Kylie Wallace: * she growls at Jurg* Jurg ..hit wall !! * she then shifts to crinos to try and give her more more leverage with Jurg to let her finish*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Stands staring into the Void, trying to see anything to help. Guiltily wanting to see the familiar one again*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Hooooold ~UP~!

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing the two of them Struggling He shifts to Lupus. IF one is to die he will be the one to take the first blow he thinks. And looks at the openning.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *in crinos himself and not letting go* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Peering into the alcove to see if he can find out what the hell is so damned important*

Soul(ST Style): Val does notice that the void seems to be shrinking, regularly. Almost rhythmically, as if something outside her perception was causing the change.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Keeps vigilant watch on it--it seems important to do so but not certain what to expect.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quietly* Hey guys. There's something in here...who's got a flashlight?

Kylie Wallace: * she growls at Jurg but then as she hears Jason yell she slowly clams down and sees the wall as she made a break thru*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* WS I do. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts and turns to watch the door, letting the hammer back to Kylie* 

Kylie Wallace: ( ack calms down) 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Marty>>Well...shine it in there man.... 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *SHifts back to Homid.*

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Jurg and nods once still in crinos and heads over to the wall* HT ~ See.....I knock down now 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Looks back to Val* Yo...Val? 

Soul(ST Style): The glass whirlwind starts to die even more as people start to gaze within the hole. It's not going fast enough to cause serious injury anymore. Another shriek of pure outrage can be heard from above.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* OK but you guys back up. IF this blows up on me. I dont want everybody taking the hits.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: It' Tartarus. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *growls back to the shriek* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Digs in his pockets to take out a small pocket mag light. Tests it to make sure it works.*

Kylie Wallace: * she looks to Jason* HT~~Back up let me make a bigger opening

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Watching, still* Keep doing what you doing.. 

Soul(ST Style): The light flares on, almost dazzlingly bright in the dark basement. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie and frowns at her words.* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Backs it up a little* Hit Crinos, mano. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Blink at the flash of light a few times.* 

Kylie Wallace: * she waits till everyone is a good distance away from the opening and hits and hits until the walls gives more way *

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie>>You killed the wall. Good job. Now...before we go mucking with shit we don' know much about, let's take a look...

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons get her back so i can look for crying out loud. Its hard to see with a Sledge hammer swinging around my head.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie...let Marty look before slaying the wall some more. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( add a * after Twomoon.)) 

Kylie Wallace: * she stops and frowns* HT~~you can't see shit unless the hole is bigger 

Soul(ST Style): The wall collapses fully. And then, Martin's light exposes what lies within. A pitiful sight lies within. The skeleton of an infant human lies there, curled in about itself, lying in tattered rags. In the midst of the rags, the light glints off something metallic. As the light illuminates the tiny, pathetic skeleton, the glass whirlwind stops, the shards tinkling to the floor with a musical sound. Val sees the void slowly seal itself up. The familiar face presses itself against the hole one more time, whispering in a hauntingly familiar, yet alien, voice, "Mamma..." before the void seals itself up entirely, as if it never existed.

Kylie Wallace: * she then looks at the wall crumble and she snorts* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie and flips his flash light in her eyes as he move to the hole and looks for his Camera.And moves the light into the hole itself. Probably bringing light for the first time in manny manny years.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *....deep breath....* Okay....we all look.

Kylie Wallace: * she then slowly shifts back to Homid form setting the sledgehammer next to the nearest thing* 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Holds to that vigil a moment beyond necessity, then looks back to this side of existence* It's gone.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie and now seems to understand and he is frowning.* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): What did we just do? 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *still watching the stairway up* 

Soul(ST Style): A sudden, warm gust of wind pours forth from the hole, smelling wonderful, like baking bread and the sweetest woman's perfume imaginable. It pours forth, up the stairs. Above, the chains stop their cacaphony abruptly.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *sniff.... sniffsniff.... grunt*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Coughs to dispel and cover the strain of emotion over things hinted at in the sight* 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks inside* We need to bury the skeleton...say a last rite....* she digs in her bag and pulls out the book* Seee the priest wrote about a mother and child voices crying...this is the child...

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.*We found a child.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie. Then at Twomoons.* Can we tie her down for a few seconds. Who know what we just did.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Let's do this right. We need a nice thing for the body. A box and blanket. 

Soul(ST Style): The metallic object rolls forward, clinking against the ground. It's now clearly a ring - a tiny one, but a ring. Anyone who saw the necklace taken from the mugger a few weeks ago recognizes the wolfshead insignia on the ring as being the same as the one on the locket.

Kylie Wallace: Maybe this is the mother..haunting the place? maybe she is here somewhere too her skeleton?..maybe we find here's and put them to rest?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie>>Where's the mother then? I mean...*indicates* there's something metal there...*stepping forward and over the rubble slowly, his body language indicated permission*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Still oddly numb inside, as one's body after a beating* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Valerie.Then to jurgs.* Can you go see if the door to the office is useable? 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Kylie>>I mean...the mothers'...remains...

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Martin>>Useable to open and close? or useable to rip off the hinges? 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Marty* What..don't you notice the chnage in this place? the music has stopped the chains stopped.....the smell has changed..we're doing the right thing and * her focus is now on the shiny thing* ooooooooo

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg.* To open and close. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *nods and heads back up the stairs* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): It's the same... 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val, go up with Jurg. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Kylie.* This comming from the same person while on a scouting mission almost triped a bomb on my pack.

Kylie Wallace: Jason..I don't know and I don't have the strength to play slayer of walls

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Comes to full attention and goes up after Jurg* Hey, Jurg, it's me. 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks to Marty* Excuse me I warned your pack about the bomb...I discovered it didn't do anything to it

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Hey. Bicker about the past later. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jason.* You the eldest here and you the one who should be giving some orders. *Looks at the skeleton.* Want me to take a picture or should i go find something to pick her up?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: ~HT~ hey Val, I'm me too. *checks to see if the door's covered or inacesible. grunts at all the shattered liquor bottles* that... fiend... *growls*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Leaning forward, reaching out slowly to touch the ring, hoping that if he's doing a Bad Thing, he'll know*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Heh, I still wouldn't drink the liquor of the Underworld. 

Soul(ST Style): Jürg sees something strange up the stairs. Not quite as bizarre as the other events of the night, but strange nonetheless. The door to the office hangs open, and through it, he can see the church now appears to be whole and intact, as it must have been 100 years ago. Sunlight filters through the stained glass windows, and the pews are all in place. The church is empty for the moment; however, from the organ comes strains of the wedding march.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Val>>~HT~ its good proof. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *stops midstep.... Keanu Reeves couldn't do this any better* ~HT~ whoa...... 

Soul(ST Style): The ring almost seems to leap into Twomoons' hand, though it could be a mental trick. It seems warm in his hand, and Twomoons feels a sense of comfort.

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Jason and then Marty* What the fuck ever.* she heads over to sit somewhere*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((Val see this too? With Jurg)) 

Kylie Wallace: (* watches Jason turn into Golem*) 

Soul(ST Style): ((Yup. Val sees it too. *s* Strangely, no one downstairs seems to hear the wedding march, though the sound should be audible.))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* I will go get something so we can carry her to a proper place.*And goes back up stairs to see if he cant find anything usefull.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *blinkblink....blink* Rings don't jump into peoples' hands. Do they?

Kylie Wallace: * she leans against a wall letting the two handle things for now she folds her arms over her chest* 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *looks around for people, or if its still deserted... looks to Val with the same blank expression* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Nods to Marty, stepping fully into the former alcove, and kneeling slightly respectfully* Hey...

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((It jumps to us, my Precious!)) 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Jurg, you don't see this too do you? Where are we?

Soul(ST Style): As Martin heads up the stairs, he begins to hear the wedding march. He sees the newly changed church as well. And suddenly, there, in front of the church, stands a priest. A kindly-looking old man, he smiles warmly. The front doors to the church swing open and dazzling sunlight pours in, though no one steps in immediately.

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Val>>in a dimension where I wear khakis and you're a slut? *blinks* what in the fuck is going on here?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *reverts to homid*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the scene and blinks.* Thats it. i have gone insane. 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Uh huh..*Steps out of the aisle so she won't be in the way or noticed. Just then notes her outfit is torn to crap from having shifted to Crinos*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Warder? *calls over his shoulder* git up here.

Kylie Wallace: * she hears Jurg and looks to Jason ..okay she can be pissed later her curiousity kicks in and she tugs Jason up the stairs*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *softly* I'll be back. *stands and hustles up the stairs* Kylie, c'mon...

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the scene not realising at first that Valerie is in a slight problem and he could so take a picture too.*

Archivin' Paul: ((~Doesn't know why "Chapel of Love" just started playing in his head.~))

Soul(ST Style): A man strides through the open doors, wearing what would have been the height of wedding fashion one hundred years ago. A powerful-looking man, he strides into the church as if he owns the place. A ring flashes on his left hand, bearing the wolfshead insignia seen below. He steps forward and stands before the priest, smiling widely, though the old man seems somewhat afraid of him. He turns to look at the door, but again, no one steps through immediately.

Kylie Wallace: * she quickly reaches the top of the stairs and walks into the scene* Oh my go...what the fuck?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *slips out of his jacket, tossing it at Val. The white streaks running down his left arm might be a reminder to some of another ghostly incident.. Tattooed versinos of the bracers run up both arms as well*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Chucks her hair over her shoulders to the front. Voila, sort of coverage.* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *For a reason his only actions.* Shhh! watch your mouth. I mean. i think we are at a wedding.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Looks at the ring, the guy, the ring in his hand...2+2=....something*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Takes up the jacket and slips it on, just in case these people can see them.* Thanks Jurg. *quietly*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the others as his mind races to catch up and notices Valerie and takes off his Leather Coat.* Here take this.

Kylie Wallace: * she glares at Marty not about to listen to him after his acusation of her and she steps closer to the scene*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts with a nearly imperceptible nod, speaks softly* this ain't happenin'. I think its just fuckin' with our memories. Lke with the TVs..

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Oh, and Val's nekkid. Relatively, that's the most normal thing that's happened tonight*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *And seing he aint the only one of thinking of it he stops and slips back his coat on.*

Soul(ST Style): Finally, a woman walks into the church. Wearing a wedding dress that appears old and rather worn, she still is radiant, with pale skin, soft, beautiful features, and flowing raven tresses. She smiles happily as she walks forward to take her place next to the man. As she turns, all the Garou note that the wedding dress can't conceal her slightly curving belly...The woman is with child. The priest goes through the ceremony, though it is strangely abbreviated. The two exchange vows, lean forward, and kiss.

Kylie Wallace: * she then digs through her bag to pull out the book and flips through it for a clue as to who these people are* 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Martin> Got one already, thanks. *Faux casually* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *softly* I'd be inclined to agree, if any of us were alive at that time...I think we're seeing a little of the reasoning...but...I'm not sure where this fits in.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *softly* Bad karma.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Turns to Them and watches the scene only his mind probably understanding most it.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: I didn' say it was our memory. *grunts*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quietly* Marty, that guys' face. Memorize it, I want Vivian to sketch it later.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Memories are real. Real as the spirits who show them to us. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looking at the wedding.* I think this was a Secret Wedding or something like it. And the woman is the mother of the child we found downstairs.

Soul(ST Style): Kylie finds a mention of this event in the priest's journal, roughly three months before the troubles began. He tells of a wedding ceremony he performed in secret, for a strange man named Alexander Williams, and his bride. Her name is not given; it appears to have been obliterated from the page by someone writing over it. He does mention in a rather critical tone that she seemed to be pregnant, but he mentions how in love the couple was.

Kylie Wallace: * flip flip flip through the book looking for an entry, picture anything about weddings* 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Nods barely perceptibly at Martin* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons.* I can sketch it now.*And takes a picture with his Camera not knowing if it will do any good.*

Kylie Wallace: * she grins and puts a finger on the page* Bingo!

Kylie Wallace: * she reads a part of it outloud* Alexander Williams?..hmm but who's the woman? 

Soul(ST Style): The couple continues to kiss, and then the image fades like a mirage, or waking from a dream. The club is as it was before, still silent and empty. The chains are gone from the ceiling, however, and there's no sign of the velvet that had been covering the crucifix above the door.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons. Then at Valerie.Then at the wedding proceeding.* Show us more please.

Kylie Wallace: * she tears herself from the book and jumps slightly looking around moving a bit* hey! 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: But how did the baby end up down there? *To the air*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *Quietly* Downstairs guys. We still need to do something about the infant. How it got there...I unno.

Kylie Wallace: * she reads a part of the journal* The priest wrote they were married in secret....seems old Alex didn't want it known or something

Soul(ST Style): Nothing responds. The palpable air of menace so prevalent before is now gone from the club. The feeling of a presence is gone.

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): She was pregnant...*looking inside the wring for any writing or anything that might give hintage* Back then, you were supposed to be a virgin when you got married.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Twomoons and looks around.* I will take care of the Girl.*Starts going back down.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *starts making a pointed stalk for the front doors again.* 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Marty* Girl? 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *raises a boot to kick at it again, eager to see if it opens finally* 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val, go with Marty...Kylie, follow me...*heading after Jurg* 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: But here, in the Church? *Flexes her hands with no one to break for this crime* 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Heads off after Martin* 

Kylie Wallace: * as this book has come in handy she stuffs it back in her bag for safekeeping*

Soul(ST Style): The heavy double doors swing open at Jurg's kick easily. Cold night air pours into the warm club.

Kylie Wallace: * she looks around the area and then looks to Jurg kicking open the door and looks up and around again * hmmmm

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Least now we know how we're getting out. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *grunts and turns to see what else needs to be done* open says these,. 

Soul(ST Style): The retrieval of the infant's skeleton is easy. The club feels somehow...Safer now, more comfortable. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As he goes back down teh Stairs he Walks to the Skeleton. He removes his coat and then proceeds to remove his t-shirt. Looks at the Drawing on the back.* Rather appropriate in a way.*SMirks at the drawing of Lady death.Looks at the Skeleton.* You are going home. No need to trouble yourself no more.*Starts putting the skeleton into the shirt.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Softly, down with Martin* Let no one say this baby was illegitimate, for what it's worth.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As he works slowly he looks at Valerie.* By the way. I will never say anything about what i saw on the monitors.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: No one will. *Finality and certainty in that* 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Puts his coat back on and looks at Valerie.* Should ask the others to bring you something to wear.

Kylie Wallace: * she softly sighs and looks around feeling ...drained emotionaly ..mentally ..and physically* I need a drink

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Slowly picks up the remains.* You will all be rejoined together again. 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): All the booze here is toast...*Looking around...okay, he distinctly recalls a bigass velvet hanging...*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Kylie>>you need a swift kick in the ass for that little stunt you pulled. *grunts and heads for the monitors again*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Valerie and walks up.* Oh hey i wanted to ask you. What did you guys see in the umbra?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: It's ok. I'll find something upstairs. Come on, let's take the little one to a good burial. 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Jurg* What stunt was that? 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: In the Umbra was a void filled with the dead. A hole in the wall between us. 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Nods to Valerie.* I see. 

Soul(ST Style): As the Garou stand there, looking out the front door, they hear a pair of wolves howl in absolute tandem, from somewhere far away. Not a natural howl, but the howl of something wearing the shape of a wolf...((Since it's getting late, I'm gonna go ahead and call it. *s* There will be no trouble putting the child's skeleton to rest. I'll send out Renown over the list either sometime tonight or tomorrow evening. If you all want to hang around in the club setting, feel free. Excellent scene, folks. I'll be in the JY to answer questions for a while, if anyone needs me.))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: Kylie>>Lesse, running downstairs by yerself when the rest of us were up here, tryin' to kill a wall when ya didn't know what would happen. *spits to the ground* if Val'd been zoned out up here she probly woulda been toast.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Truly didn't want to think about that at the moment and puts on speed to join the others*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: OOC:Great scene Soul. good 'n creepy. 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((Thank you, Soul! It was riveting)) 

Kylie Wallace: * she quirks a brow* Oh and I guess you going out by yourself and getting yourself fucked up with burns concerning the fomori yourself......

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((IC))One last thing, people. No one talks about what we saw in those monitors, right? Swear?

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): *quietly* Hey. Enough. 

Archivin' Paul: ((It is...archived. ~The audience "oooohs."~))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Jurg.* Could you do us the honors please?*Turns his look at the monitors themselves.*

Kylie Wallace: ( good scene good scene *clasp*) 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Or at least no one does unless the owner of the ..scene, brings it up. Deal? 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( i also applaud the scene.)) 

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): Val>>I saw what I saw. And I'm not sure what I saw....get the infant, let's head back to the house. Val, Marty...Y'all two make whatever...arrangements you can.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Holding the Remains of a child skeleton in his t-shirt is one thing at the moment he is trying not to think of.*

'Twomoons' Maier (Out of the bawn for the 2nd time in 8 months): ((Back to the JY)) 

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Right. Marty, let's. 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *doesn't answer Val. if he was going to, he woulda before tonight. pops his neck and proceeds to demolish the monitors... GAWD it feels good to raise a little chaos*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((Yep, back to JY)) 

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Follows Valerie.* 

Kylie Wallace: * she looks at Jason and silently heads back to the junkyard with her rental mini van of flaming death*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing Jurg Tear down the monitors he grins.* All praise the mighty savior!

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( head back to the yard)) 

Jürg Beast-of-Garm: *back to the JY*

Archivin' Paul: ((Cut, print.))
