Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

The heavy aroma of coffee would flare up the druid's nostrils as he hit the last step, and the sound of sizzling food would reach his ear. In the kitchen he'd find a robust woman hard at work, shirt untucked, sleeves rolled, and hair braided in a single skinny cord. Bacon cooked on a light glaze of ...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

It was a straight shot. Doubt, ever the eager one, made no effort to defend herself. Trigger fingers danced, hammers striking on alternate beats. They sang a brief iron song in 3/4 time until every casing sat empty and alone in their chambers, like wives after the soldiers have left for war. And the...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

Jane's feet spun her around to search for her foe while hands rapidly reloaded her second firearm. The moment Doubt sprang up from Eryl, the American snorted a bull's frustration. Mercy was not welcome here, at the very least not with these foes. When Laoise was struck down, however, her rage flared...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

Johann smiled back at his partner. "Oh, I like that. It's clever." The walk wasn't terrible and Chuffy was not only having a good time, but performing admirably. Kat's kindness was also helping him relax. All in all, the German giant was having a good time, outdoors or not. As for the fire pit, "It'...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

With the fight rapidly turning their favor, Jane moved to take the offensive. She knelt, shrugging the triclops to the ground, then lunged toward the hag like someone had fired the starter pistol. She emptied her left-hand revolver while reloading the right. This wobbled her aim on the hag's gauntle...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

Jane grunted in frustration at being so easily tricked, but shouldered those thoughts aside for now. With Eryl conscious and responsive, Jane offered an encouraging smile. Her free arm wound around the slighter woman's waist and shrugged Eryl's good arm around her neck. "Well Mizz Maelgwyn, looks li...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

As soon as Sorrow fully emerged, she was subjected to a barrage of heavy slugs targeting her gaping wound. Jane made her way toward Eryl's prone body to a steady, thunderous beat. If she could at least put the pained goddess off kilter for a few moments, that would be success enough for now. Both gu...

Re: [Chapter 1] Once a Marine.

Camilla nodded. This was shaping up to be a suicide mission. It was strange that the idea was almost comforting. Not because she sought death, but because she knew what to expect. "Niall, get us in. Once we've got a safe place, you'll contact your insider and I'll make a decision then. Move in two m...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

"If it weren't the worst, I wouldn't be here," Jane replied with another wry grin. Then it was happening. Riley riled up Sorrow and Doubt seemed happy enough to play along. The nest was kicked hard . "Go!" She shouted at Eryl and strafed to the right, guns drawn. Once a clear line of sight was avail...

Re: [Chapter 1] Into the Maw

Names flew about; accusations and rebuttals swirled; there was a whirlwind of history and meaning whipping around Jane that would be enough to drive a curious man mad. A stony face peered through the maelstrom to glean only what was essential to the task at hand. The immovable object weathered all d...
