Blue Lady: The Final Scene

April 13, 2003

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( I claim this room for the claiming people.))

Soul(ST Style): ((Okay. The rules, as always: 1) This scene is lethal, and all characters within it are considered to be at risk for death, should life-or-death situations come up. 2) Don't roll for anything unless I ask you to, unless it's combat or Gift activations. Assume a moderate(2-3 successes) success on any roll unless I tell you otherwise. 3) Keep OOC talk to a minimum unless it's absolutely necessary. PM me if you need to ask any questions. I'll type up a setting post. Feel free to post IC for a while.))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Leads everyone to the truck to lead them to the place. He is silent and thinking.*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Climbs into the truck, letting someone else drive.*

Soul(ST Style): ((Oh, before I finish the setting post - Is anyone willing to archive?))

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *follows worry haunting her eyes*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she follows yadda yadda*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Gaia have this all go OK. *said in a gentle prayer*

Soul(ST Style): ((Thank you. We'll work something out. And, fast-forwarding...)) The drive to the docks is, as it was last time, uneventful. The sky is perfectly clear tonight, and in fact, it feels like a good night - warm enough to be comfortable, but not so hot it's unpleasant. Waiting at the docks are two boats - standing in the front of each of them is a silent, robed figure, with a boatman's stick, topped with a silver wolfshead. The figures wait absolutely silently, turned towards the island, far away in the middle of the lake.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Someone supposed to expect us? *points*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Decides there's no point in wasting time and steps forward--and besides, if anyone's got to take the silver upside the head, might as well be him.* Evenin'.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she takes a deep breath and takes out a gold crucifix necklace and places it around her neck *

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Gab like shes strange...but will question it later*

Soul(ST Style): The figures remain silent, still looking towards the distant island. Somewhere in the midst of the lake, a bright light winks on.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she whispers almost in a awe sounding voice* She was expecting us....* she wills her feet to move toward the boats*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at things and steps slowly in the boat as well.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((It figures. I leave and Soul comes! *S* Hi. Is this closed already?))

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Nods.* Of course. *Steps forward and gets into one of the boats.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at the robed figures as she steps in the boat and quickly sits down*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *gets into the boats looking around nervously*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Steps into a boat with as much aplomb as possible under the circumstances*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at the others and just has to lighten the mood* Uhhh so is there a movie on this boat?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): If all goes wrong....Night of the living dead might be appropriate.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *CHuckles at Gabrielle.* I have peanuts.

Soul(ST Style): The boatmen stick their poles into the inky black lake with a soft splash as soon as the Garou are all aboard, and then the boats begin to move. Despite the fact there's no physical way they should, they do - the boats glide across the surface of the lake with supernatural speed. Before long, the mansion looms before the war party. As the boats slide up next to the dock, the heavy cast iron gate swings open with an ominous creak.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: No reason for it to go wrong.

Gabrielle Tureck: Ohhh that was such a cool movie...I mean it was pretty gross and everything but damn good movie...I give it a thumbs up

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Gab* Not cool when theys coming at you. Trust me.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks towards the house and coughs a few times sniffling.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she blinks and her eyes widen* Wow...umm do we tip these umm things?

Soul(ST Style): The boatmen gesture in perfect unison towards the house. As might be expected, their hands are skeletal, the bone shining white in the moonlight.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): I'd toss a gold coin if I had one. *Makes sure to be the first out when the boats dock, getting up onto shore and taking a look around.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *She gets out of the boat and waits for the others on the shore*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Counts down from ten to not smack jokesters* Thank you. *To the boatmen, and she starts toward the house*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she eyes the bonythings and almost tripps getting out of the boat *

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Counts down from ten to not smack jokesters* Thank you. *To the boatmen, and she starts toward the house*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she eyes the bonythings and almost tripps getting out of the boat *

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): ((Not said in a joking manner, either.))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Steps out with the others.* Follow the yellow brick road guys. we have a party to attend.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): wanted to come.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *glances at Gab*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she stops...not being able to help herself.... looking at the house as if kinda entranced by the whole thing*

Soul(ST Style): The next thing is probably not so expected. The boatmen - and their boats - suddenly explode into a cloud of black, buzzing insects. The two swarms then combine into one larger one, fly upwards, then take off towards the house.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she whispers* I wish I'd a brought my camera....doubt they'd show up in pictures anyway

Gabrielle Tureck: * she just stands there in awe her mouth drops open and her eyes are wide*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Not good. Better had we taken our own boats in hindsight. Now we are stuck unless we doggy paddle.....or she decides to play nice.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Nods--he's seen Candyman before. Simply leads off towards the house, keeping an eye out.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *walks with the others*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Follows the path if the insects visually, fascinatedly*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at them.* Guess there is only one way to go now.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she comes out of it and sees she's alone and blinks* Oh shit *and runs up to catch up to the others*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Keeps good pace with Jublain, of course just a little behind him*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *When Gab catches up Linda drops behind to take up the rear*

Soul(ST Style): As the Garou start towards the house, they can see...Things in the hedgerows along the path. A glance of grayish, rotting flesh here, a glimpse of a skeletal hand reaching out for contact there. But nothing attacks - the Garou are completely unmolested as they make their way towards the house.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she spies the hand and shivers a bit* ewww

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Frowns at the strength of the place this time. He walked towards the house.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): This she-ghost is powerful.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: poor thing..*about the hand*

Gabrielle Tureck: Linda> Yep..she's been dead a long time....the longer a spsirit is dead the more powerful it becomes and more stubborn

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Grunts.* A few without the things, this much with the ring... how much more with the locket? *Keeps on going, regardless.*

Gabrielle Tureck: If she is put to the rest...the othere should find peace as well.

Soul(ST Style): As the Garou head for the steps, the front doors swing open. Out of them steps...A young child, perhaps 11 years old. A handsome young boy, he has dark hair and deep, intense eyes, set in an aristocratic face. He is the spitting image of Alexander Williams.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Takes out the locket and sets it in his Hand keeping it there. Clutching onto it. near is heart.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): She killed all these others. They were the Williams family. After her death she struck them down one by one.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Nods to the boy.* Evenin'. We're here to see Mrs. Williams.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): But they coldly murdered her and her son first granted. *to Gab*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she grips her pack and looks at the little boy *

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Her son Martin?

Gabrielle Tureck: * she nods to Linda*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the figure.* Verry possible. *Looks at the man.* And you are?

Soul(ST Style): The young boy steps forward, closer to the Garou, and they can clearly see the terror on his features. He speaks, his voice soft, innocent. "You...You came here? Why?"

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): We made a deal. We're here to honor it.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Focuses in on the boy, searching his features for any kinds of signs, for what she doesn't yet know.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the figure.* Claudette asked me to return the locket.

Soul(ST Style): Tears start to roll down the boy's cheeks. "She...She's so much stronger now. She can't feel me here now, but I can't hide for much longer. Please, you have to listen to me. I..." Somewhere close by, a pair of wolves howls in perfect unison. The child stops, frozen in absolute terror.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): Tell us quickly, if you can. then do what you must.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she steps forward and kneels to be closer to the boy's height and looks to him* How do we stop her...can you help us?

Soul(ST Style): He whispers, "You can't stop her. Not anymore." He turns and runs into the house.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the boy.* Talk quickly. dont be affraid. We wont let you get harmed.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she frowns as she knows there has to be away and she will find it somehow and she stands up*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Martin* You promise that which you can't garentee.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *said after the boy runs*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Moves to Martin's left and speaks quietly.*  Speak well, Quickflash. If all goes to naught, we die well this night.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Are we right to return this to her?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Sighs and Looks at Linda.* Well *Takes out his gun.* WE have a ring to get. Its on the mantle piece.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Takes a step onward toward the house*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): Linda>>I do not know. But that was out of our hands some time ago.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): We still try to bargain?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Martin, honor first.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Nods.* We will. Let's head on in. *Heads for the door.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at Martin* Why did you bring a gun?

Soul(ST Style): After a moment, Claudette steps outside. She is absolutely radiant tonight - as beautiful as anything any of the Garou present have ever seen. She curtsies politely, then smiles expectantly. "You have all come. I trust you have something for me?"

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): ((DLP))

Gabrielle Tureck: * she then looks to Claudette* We thank you for having us in your lovely home

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Put it away Martin. PS It won't do much good against the dead anyway.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Tilts her head politely to Claudette*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Gabrielle.* So i can shoot myself.*Looks at Claudette.* My lady. May we come in?

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Reaches up, not actually tipping his hat, but at least tugging at the hatbrim.* Ma'am.

Soul(ST Style): The woman laughs softly. "I'm not having you in my house. I'm having you on my island. There is no need for you to come into my house."

Soul(ST Style): ((Well, she's been telling the truth so far. *g*))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* My Lady. I have the item as agreed on. I want to make sure that our previous agreement still hols true. Will you remove my curse you have given me and leave all alone and return to your solitude as you said you would?

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks to Claudette* I was so hoping we could speak inside....I have heard so much about this place and of would not be accused of being a terrible host and not invite us in would you?

Gabrielle Tureck: * she bites her lip being overly anxious and grimaces * Forgive my rudness

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Casts Gabrielle an odd look*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Gab* Be quiet...don't complicate things.

Soul(ST Style): She holds out her hand. "Give me the locket, Martin."

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* Answer my question please. Will you hold to the formention deal as said. or not.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Do you swear you will lift the curse, allow us to leave in peace, and be bound to your island from this point on if you get this back?

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Speaks quietly, although not so quietly that Claudette can't hear.* At the first hint of water, give it to me.

Soul(ST Style): Her voice suddenly takes on a steely quality. "You will give me the locket, Martin. I am not negotiating. Quickly. Before it is too late."

Gabrielle Tureck: * she decides to take a step back and just shakes her head and grips her bag strap*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Turns partially to the side so she can watch the group's back*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Yes or no lady. *looks at her*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* I am not negotiating. Will you hold to the formentioned bargain. this was the deal. (( Actvating persuasion.))

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *And pops Resist Pain, thinking that this is going to hit the fan and probably badly.*

Soul(ST Style): The woman glowers. "Martin. Give me the locket, or I cannot seal myself on the island. And then I would not be responsible for the bad things that might happen. How IS your...What is the term...Mate?"

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): You are the one wasting time....*looks at the woman* Will you keep the bargain or not?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* PS: Linda is she telling the truth or not.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (shes not lying is she?)

Soul(ST Style): ((She isn't lying about anything she's said so far.))

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): No lies yet. *mutters, but she won't answer clearly*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Still keeps an eye on the sides and back of the party*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* Claudette. Answer me now. Will you remove the curse leave this place and the rest of the world alone and go to solitude as your said you would.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (the But she won't answer clearly is also heard)

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Waits silently, still holding his hand out.*

Soul(ST Style): Above, a single cloud passes over the moon. It's only there for a minute, but it's long enough. Afterwards, Claudette looks...Different. There's something in her eyes that wasn't there before - something dark and powerful. "It's too late now, Martin. Rules change." She gestures with one hand, a gesture similar to the one an orchestra's conducter might make when the performance is ready to start. In the sky above, the stars twinkle once, and then blink out, one by one, extremely rapidly. Before long, the sky is a featureless black dome. Claudette smiles. "Do you know what you've done?"

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* We have been honest. we have been fair. we have been cooperaperative up till this moment. we have only shown you good faith and still you threaten us. Scare us. I actualy came here because i care. Not for my own life but for your pain. I came here to set things right.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette. And frowns.*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): ((*G* Cooperaperative? Meet George W. Kurst....))

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at Martin* No she would rather cling to this wretched exsistence rather then be with ther child

Gabrielle Tureck: ther=her ...ack can't spell

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *glances at Gab*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks up at the sky and looks at Claudette*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): PS Give the locket to Jublian.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Steps back towards Jublain.*

Soul(ST Style): Claudette continues talking, smiling. "You see, Claudette is too weak to do what must be done. I'm not. You can go ahead and keep that if you want. I'll get it back from your bodies." The woman whirls on Gabrielle, eyes suddenly flaring with an orangeish light. "What do you know, fool?"

Gabrielle Tureck: * she gulps and takes a step back * I know she needs to let go...her revenge is complete ..all of the family is gone that hurt her...her child is waiting for her...all she needs to do is go to the child

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Claudette, he's nervous. He wants to give it back. Can we go on with this and get it done honorably?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Nods to Gabrielle.* She is right you know. It is sad that you would rather enjoy staying in this world then returnning to your son.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): You better know what your talking about. *said to Gab*

Soul(ST Style): "That's what she WANTS. But she can't rest while that thing's out there. She's too weak to exist any longer. But I'm not." There's a howl from somewhere in the distance - not the wolf howls from before, but the howl of a Garou in their Crinos form.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: Bring back Claudette, please, so we can help. That's why so many of us came.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks to Linda and is about to say something and looks to Claudette* No she's stronger then she thinks.....she doesn't have to stay here anymore...there's no reason....none...if there is what is it..becuase you want her to? because once she lets go you don't exisist anymore....* she is of course gripping the bag strapp*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): That thing?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): What thing?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the Form.* Who are you and what can we do to stop all this Madness?

Soul(ST Style): The woman looks at Val and laughs a trilling, coy laugh. "Claudette? It's harder and harder for her to reassert control now. This might be it. I might have won this time. It's very exciting." She then looks over at Gabrielle again. "Of course. She needs the damn locket destroyed before she can rest. Obviously, it would be bad for that to happen." She holds her hand out. "Come on, now. I've got a special guest coming, and you REALLY don't want him to get here."

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): PS Give it to Jublian NOW!

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (wp in use)

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Tries to keep eye contact with "Pseudo-Claudette" But I want to know, so I can honor him properly, what is your baby's name Claudette?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (: 8,8,7,10...1wp....2suxx)

Gabrielle Tureck: * she blinks and looks to Claudette* No Claudette fight it! come back to us....

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Hand the Locket to Jublain.* All yours!

Soul(ST Style): ((Something in that last post was a lie. But there's some sort of interference, and Linda can't tell exactly which part.)) She looks over at Val and laughs again. "Oh, Valerie. Claudette's not here any longer. I thought you got that." The Garou can hear something crashing through the hedges behind them. A sickly greenish glow is emanating from the hedgerow, but its source is unclear. "Time's wasting, Martin. Make your choice. Either my guest arrives, and everyone dies, or you give me that damn locket."

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Hesitates an instant to hear the Half-moon's judgement.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Wait....there was a lie in that last one.....something aint right.

Soul(ST Style): The woman looks over at Gabrielle now. Her face twists, as if in pain, but she says nothing audible. She then looks back at Martin.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at the front doors * ( are they open?)

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): But can't tell if it's about the guest or the locket...fuck.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Grunts and stuffs the locket into his pocket instead before shifting to Crinos.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *Shifts to Crinos herself*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she grips her head* No....noo.. get out of my head * she blinks and rushes towards the front doors*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Joining Gabrielle* Claudette, you're a woman of great courage and strength to have come this far. Come back to us. Come to your son.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at The thing.* Claudette Ames. You know your there. Your Son is calling for you. We need your help to save you. Come and talk to us. I know you can do it!

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Bulking up to Glabro*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Snarls and activates Trollskin.* HT--Martin, Linda! Get the damn ring!

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *faces the door to defend the group if needbe...Fangdagger now drawn*

Gabrielle Tureck: ( opps forgot burned a wp to fight the voice)

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *Linda nods remembering where the mantel is sense the last time....she burns rage and runs into the house*

Gabrielle Tureck: * if allowed into the house the ring is what she is looking for*

Soul(ST Style): The woman rocks back and forth for a moment, then pitches forward with a loud cry, falling to her hands and knees. The crashing continues, the green glow glowing much brighter. After five seconds or so, the woman looks up, staring at Martin plaintively. "Please, Martin. She's coming back. I need the locket. Please!"

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Growls in frustration as a bit of his essence escapes into nowhere with no result.*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Stayed outside*

Soul(ST Style): ((For everyone running into the house.)) The door to the dining room is open. The ring sits on the mantle, shining. ((Everyone in the house - roll Perception + Alertness difficulty 7.))

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): PS Maybe give her the damn thing...I don't know anymore.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *This time it works, breat warts and callousses rising before he shifts to Homid and digs the locket out.*

Gabrielle Tureck: gab thing: 9,1,3,

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (8,7,5...2suxx)

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks around almost in a panic* Where is it where is it?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* Fight It claudette. tel me what we need to do. How can we stop this madness?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): HT Gab stop....I see....wires in there or something.

Soul(ST Style): ((There's no visual difference.)) She slowly starts to crawl towards Martin, still holding her hand out. The crashing sound intensifies, and another Crinos howl escapes from the hedgerow. It appears the arrival of the 'guest' is imminent, perhaps in the next ten seconds.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she don't have to be told twice and she stops like frozen posisition* Huh?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Braces for the arrival of the "guest"*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Like black wires across the room....very .....hard to see. Trap maybe. *she holds out her fangdagger* Let me test. *she will touch the tip of the dagger to one of the wires to see what happens*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Finally decides it--the other one wouldn't beg. Tosses the locket between the yard or so that seperates them and shifts to Crinos again, Morningstar coming from its place with a rattle--and looking at the woman, not the sound.*

Soul(ST Style): Linda feels something...Pull, then nothing. The spirit inside the dagger shrieks in agony, then falls utterly silent. It is still in there, but it doesn't respond to her mental connection.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she doesn't move but starts to cramp up*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): It hurt the spirit inside my dagger.....some sort of trap....webbing that will hurt spirits...not good.

Soul(ST Style): And then...The guest reveals itself. A huge Crinos - at least twelve feet tall - bursts from the hedge path. Glowing with the green light of balefire, its features are twisted, ears batlike. It bellows in Rage and maddened agony, greenish-white fur blowing in some spectral wind.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks for a path around or through it*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seeing Jublain toss the Locket towards Claudette he goes to grab it heading for claudette herself.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she frowns* She's trying to stop us..damn it.. * she just thinks of something and starts spouting the lord's prayer the priest taught her*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *rolls eyes**focues on the webbing striving to find a way through it*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Eyes narrow as she braces further by lowering her stance for maximum leverage*

Gabrielle Tureck: * okay since I only know the first part for rp sake just say she knows it and is spouting it*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at Linda* Hey I'm trying anything here

Soul(ST Style): As Gabrielle starts to say the Lord's Prayer, they can both see one of the wires snap. The taut black 'wire' flies outwards. One of the portraits on the wall suddenly falls to the floor, cleanly cut in half. Linda can see a path through the wires, but even one slightly wrong move would lead her into contact with them.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): I'm going in....keep....praying...seems to be working alittle. *looks surprised**Linda will attempt to navagate the path*

Soul(ST Style): ((Dexterity + Athletics, difficulty 8, to attempt crossing the room.))

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ((Val's outdoors, yes.))Gabrielle Tureck: *she blinks and keeps saying it and even takes off the cross and holds it up the gold cross and tries to shine it on the webbing even though she can't see it...she starts to speak louder speaking the prayer over and over again*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (6,8,3,7,7, ....1suxx)

Soul(ST Style): The pain-maddened Crinos bellows again, then fixes Val with eyes that seem to have been replaced with balefire. It starts to stalk forward, very, very slowly.

Gabrielle Tureck: Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, now and forever. Amen))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looking at Claudette. Then seing the guest.* Shit!

Gabrielle Tureck: ( thanks Linda and Val)

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Darts away from the door with a "SPIRAL COMING" to those inside.*

Soul(ST Style): Another wire breaks...Linda can feel it whistle above her head, and a bit of sharp, freezing pain, and the top tip of one of her ears falls off - not enough to impede function, just a little bit, but it hurt. A lot. ((Okay. Roll the same roll, this time diff. 7.))

Soul(ST Style): Claudette stops what she's doing, eyes wide, and starts to crawl towards Jublain. The other Garou, still glowing with balefire, continues stalking towards Val, slowly and methodically.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *whimpers as her ear is cut off partically* HT Keep it up. Spiral...shit...I can't move out of this....only forward...

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Circles, keeping the "Thing" In view, shifting to Crinos as she goes toward Jublain*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Digs in his coat and grabs at something taking out a small Jack. the spikes are sharpen to insane properties. He looks at the Chrinos and throws hard. aiming for it.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she keeps chating holding the cross up but she hesistes in moving*

Soul(ST Style): ((Ouch. Okay. Subtract one temporary Gnosis, and soak 3 aggravated damage.)) Perhaps surprised by the sudden pain, Linda stumbles. Her arm drags across one of the wires, and it cuts deeply. Her blood freezes, forming reddish crystals, as soon as it touches the strands.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *pauses to activate resist pain*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she gulps as Linda keeps getting hit but keeps chating the prayer holding up the cross no knowing what those guys in the exosrist felt like and then tries to step forward*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (that just takes a wp roll needed)

Gabrielle Tureck: ( here's my roll to move across the room gab roll: 9,9,4,5,8)

Soul(ST Style): The Crinos Garou pauses, then starts to sniff the air. It looks back down again, grinning at Val. A small tongue of Balefire licks from its mouth, but it doesn't move.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *Then Linda precedes to go forward*

Soul(ST Style): Another strand breaks, this one skittering across the floor. They seem to be breaking closer to the ground, now, and Gabrielle realizes what would happen if one broke across the middle of the room...((Rolls to cross the room are at diff. 6 now. One more roll should get Linda there.))

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ~GS~ Come on Ugly! *Hoping Jublain's ready to act like a pack with her*

Soul(ST Style): Claudette continues crawling forward, towards the locket, eyes fixed on it. The Spiral stops looking at Val, then starts to go towards the front steps of the house.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (6,7,8,10,2....4suxx)

Gabrielle Tureck: * she blinks and stops chanting and has a ooo shit face now but keeps slowly moving*gab roll: 10,6,10,9,1

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): HT Keep it up.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Snatches up any rock or log and tosses it at the Spiral's back*

Gabrielle Tureck: Umm Linda I chant anymore and we're like sliced bread.....

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *once there Linda will grab the ring*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *flicks her ear then focuses on her task*

Soul(ST Style): Linda steps out, Gabrielle is almost out. Linda picks up the ring, and it feels cold and heavy in her hand. As she touches it, the strings of blackness vanish, Linda's frozen blood hangs suspended in the air for just a moment, then is suddenly liquid again, splashing sickeningly to the floor. The two Garou in the house might notice the little boy, peeking out from around the corner of the dining room.

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Watches the woman, knowing she can be more dangerous than a whole damn pack of spirals if she's the wrong one.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the thing and head back to the locket.* ITS NOT REAL!

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Dives for the Locket!*

Soul(ST Style): The Spiral ignores the rock, moving towards the house in a disturbing, jerky gait, like a film with frames missing.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *notices the boy.....shifts to Homid* You know something. It's clear we barely understand this. We want it stopped and the lady at rest. Can you help?

Gabrielle Tureck: ( finish gab roll: 9,3,9,7,1,) * she grimaces seeing the blood*

Soul(ST Style): Claudette reaches out and presses her hand against the locket. As she does, both locket and Claudette vanish, appearing about ten feet in the air, hanging there.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *Linda is nursing her arm*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: ~GS~ Could be something as bad! *Grits her teeth and goes running toward the "Spiral"*

Soul(ST Style): The boy points outside, whispering. "We...We were supposed to watch it. But she's got it now."

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): And this ring?

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks at the little boy and kneels down to his height again* Tell us more....we want to help

Soul(ST Style): The boy sighs. "The ring is..." He pauses for a moment, then cocks his head to the side. "The ring doesn't mean anything. Not anymore."

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *This ain't a good sign... Approaches Claudette.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): And the locket?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Making a feint at the Spiral, just out of reach*

Soul(ST Style): Outside, Claudette hangs in the air. The Spiral suddenly vanishes, as if it was never there. She smiles down at Jublain and Martin, and now, Jublain can see the orange light starting to blaze around 'Claudette' like a dark halo. She laughs softly, then reaches out, hand encompassing the locket. A blue light flares from her hand, and when she opens her hand again, the locket hangs there for a moment, then disintegrates into silvery dust and floats away.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks up from the ground and frowns.*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Oh, this definitely ain't good.... Blood beads on Morningstar's spikes as Jublain steps closer.*

Soul(ST Style): The boy shakes his head. "It's too late. The locket is gone." He then walks through the front door, looking up at Claudette. Claudette vanishes again, then appears on the ground. The orange halo slowly vanishes, and Claudette is beautiful again, her eyes no longer filled with hate and anger. She kneels next to the boy and embraces him tightly.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Slowly stands up. Knowing its too late now. Jublain had dropped the Locket. The illusion was perfect.* I was too late.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she stands up and looks very confused*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *walks across the room back to the door and Gab...watching the women and the boy*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *walks across the room back to the door and Gab...watching the women and the boy*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Muzzle points left and right, keeping watch for more guests*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Watches the woman still.*

Soul(ST Style): Claudette looks at the boy, eyes welling up with tears. She says quietly, "I tried, son. I tried." He nods and hugs her back, then whispers in return. "I know you did, Mama. But it's not in our hands anymore. We can rest now."

Gabrielle Tureck: * she looks to Claudette tilting her head* Ummm ummm

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Claudette* his life safe from you now? Can we depart in peace? And you can be at rest on this island with your son?

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): HT--What did you try?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): What did you try to do?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He slumps.* I am dead now.*And drops to the ground indian style.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she approaches Claudette* What just happened?

Soul(ST Style): Claudette looks up at Linda with a soft, sad smile. Sharp eyes can notice she's slowly growing translucent. She shakes her head. "I'm not going to be here anymore. I'm going to someplace else now, with my son." Claudette starts to glow softly, blue, and everyone can recognize the woman from the myths of the homeless children. She walks forward, and rests her hand on Martin's chest. "You are free now, Martin. The curse laid on you is no more."

Gabrielle Tureck: * she can't help herself as she starts to reach out her hand to Claudette*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): What did you try to do? And thank you for freeing him.

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Ears lie flat* ~HT~ When she's gone, we better go now!

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks up at Claudette.* You? You are free? i wont die now?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *nods* Lets not stick around here.......definately.

Soul(ST Style): The woman looks over at Linda. "I tried to stop my husband's last foolish act. But I cannot hold it back anymore. It is beyond me now." Claudette then looks at Martin and shakes her head. "You will not die now. You are free, and you are safe." She then looks around, then spots Valerie, drifting towards her - quite literally, as her feet are fading away into nothingness

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): What was that act?

Gabrielle Tureck: * she listens and looks around* Oh shit...what did we do?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Claudette.* How can we stop your husband? before you go?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Mentally gives Claudette her very best hopes as she starts for the water* ~HT~ Come on. Fast.

Soul(ST Style): Ignoring all questions, Claudette stares at Valerie intensely, then speaks. "I seem to remember you are with child. Is that true?"

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Grunts with the effort, the words almost one continuous growl (WP spent)* Fare you well in the time after this, Claudette.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she frowns as she would love to find out more about this place but her feet says otherwise as she starts heading with the group*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *travels with the group*

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Halts to answer* Yes, it's true. *Going back to Glabro to answer*

Jublain "Hjarta-Villtnur" Wade (GoF PB 3; ST): *Steps back, waiting to hear.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Waits to listen. quietly.*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she stops* Your pregos?

Valerie "Rolling Blackout" Karydikrotos: *Quick glance at Gabrielle, and back to Claudette*

Soul(ST Style): Claudette reaches out, resting a hand on Valerie's lower stomach, and a blue flare emanates from her hand. A feeling of peace and warmness spreads from her hand, enveloping Val. "May you go with my blessings. Now. I wouldn't want you all to have to swim back to land. Let me and my son help you." Claudette and her son both close their eyes and concentrate, then a flare of white light emanates from them, and the scene surrounding the Garou begins to fade. The last thing they see is Claudette and her son embracing again, the accursed mansion collapsing in the background, and then whiteness. Mere seconds later, the whiteness is slowly replaced by the familiar surroundings of the Junkyard. No doubt anyone still in there is rather surprised, as the war party literally fades into existance in the middle of the gathering area. ((And that's it for the Blue Lady storyline, folks. Thanks so much for bearing with me. I hope it was worthwhile. I'll post Renown and such to the list in a moment.))
