Re: [Episode 2] Two Minds, One Body

No no no no no no no no- His mind was a broken record, fixating on that one loop while his hands worked vigorously. He wasn't worried anymore- they'd already seen everything- but he was afraid of what they would think and the questions they would ask. The was a small comfort in knowing that it wasn...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

"When a bull rushes, ye take him by the horns," she said, explaining her stance on the matter. "Now he's kickin free and I reckon he'll be even more dangerous the next time." Jane pulled the bandage- just spare cloth really- tight around Ruarc's leg and cinched a knot. She picked up the book again a...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Even if it did not buy his death, Jane's gambit brought her grim satisfaction wiping out the man's smug self certainty. And then there was pain. It froze her thoughts, paralyzed her limbs, and ensnared all her senses. She'd never endured its like and once finally free of it, wished to never suffer i...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Jane had another moment of strange contemplation, puzzled as the gun fired but made no sound. And then the bullet erupted . The result wasn't as final as she had hoped, but it knocked Alexei down a few pegs, and she couldn't complain. Then the dark druid charged like a mad bull. She backpedaled to b...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Jane smirked at Alexei counting her shots. Not yet, she told herself, and allowed Ruarc to shuffle her away. Although the Black Hammer held only one round, Jane holstered her Lightning by the time the druids exchanged spells. She pulled free then, still smirking. Two hands hefted dark steel. "The la...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Anxiety was an alien problem to Jane Smith, and she tackled it head-on like she would any other. First things first, she reloaded. Her cartridges along the crisscrossed belts weren't perfectly sized, but they would take. She cocked both hammers. Her left thumb was eager to double-cock the Black Hamm...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

"No, they're... Rivals." She explained as best she could guess: Jane didn't actually know their relations, other than that they were sour. The brief lull was unnerving. Then, suddenly she was beset by talons. The damage was minimal thanks to the thick sleeves of her duster. But when the bird fell, b...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

" Trust me, " she whispered. Her holster and jacket also whispered as she stowed her weapons. Jane pulled a length of rope from beneath her jacket and rapidly tied Ruarc's hands before he could protest. " Be ready. " Then she booted him in the ass hard enough to send him sprawling. If he tested the ...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

As Sam departed, Jane could feel her two selves meld together once more. All of her was standing still once more, near the exit of the undercroft and making eye contact with a concerned druid. Jane nodded reassuringly in silent answer to a silent question. Then they were off on a mad dash through th...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Jane had a sense of displacement, as if she were at once standing still and running up an incline. The dark metal of the barrel struck a chord that resonated with the violence in her heart. The Jane that was standing still reached out with the gem-filled hand and took up the revolver. It fit perfect...
