[The ravages of getting bored enough to attend any public event in this town include running the risk of coming in contact with mind-altering objects, which, hey, maybe he should have considered, but how dangerous is a time capsule going to be, really? Call it a misjudgement. The post comes later that afternoon.]

I've never been so cheered up by stupid fucking town pride in my life. Are we still doing posts about who gets to be town bike around here? I volunteer as tribute. That's what that was about, right? Picking sex volunteers for the lonely and horny? I'm not picky.

[Adrian M]

How you doing, man?

[Holly W]

Hey Echoes.

[Jeremiah M]

Are we done pretending?

[Ben S]

Hey. I was in a weird fucking mood when you said hi. I should probably at least be nice to the guy who rescued me from a library, even if it was a dream.

[Seven M]

No one has called me a pedo after class I think we're cool

[Off the Record: May-June] [24 May 2019|01:57am]


[Spring has sprung, and Repose is no exception. Warmer days mean longer days, and dark doesn't fall until well after 8 p.m. most nights. These longer days mean more town activities, and Town Hall is busy beautifying Repose. Buildings are painted, and landscaping sounds can be heard all over downtown. Unfortunately, all the beautification reveals a time capsule buried behind the general store. After much consideration, Town Hall decides to open said time capsule in the center of Main Street and with much fanfare.

The lock on the old box, which is old and copper, decidedly Art Deco in appearance, gives way rather easily, and the puff of smoke that accompanies the opening is ominously dark, curling itself around spectators and winding its way down alleys and into the fields and orchards. As for the items inside the box, they're placed on display at the rec center, and they're available for handling by residents, but being around them seems to have strange effects on the town residents:

→ The first item in the box is a locket, and the accompanying card says it belonged to a Miss Reich. Miss Reich's family, the display card says, owned the town B&B over a hundred years ago. Sadly, Miss Reich was abandoned at the altar, and she hung herself from the B&B's attic rafters. Handling the locket makes the handler feel intense sensations of emotional love.

→ The second item on display is a compact. Upon opening it, the scent of old roses fills the nostrils, though it is long empty. The card accompanying it explains that it belonged to a Mrs. Hardy. Mrs. Hardy, the card states, had an unremarkable and happy life. She was an insightful woman, or so the card states, and those who have handled the compact will find any mirrors they encounter in days after show them strange and undeniable truths.

→ The third item on display is a lighter. The accompanying card states that it belonged to Mr. Stephens. The card indicates that the rumors around town involved Mr. Stephens having been bitten by a feral animal when he was just 16. He ailed for a month, before dying of infection on the full moon. Handling the lighter, which Mr. Stephens apparently could not handle having in his presence after the attack, makes the handler feel angry and animalistic.

→ The fourth item on display is a pendant, and there is no card accompanying, but it feels sinister to the touch, and it draws people with darkness to it. After interacting with it, these people feel their darkness much more strongly than before.

→ The final item is whimsical. The fairy pendant does not have an accompanying card, but there is an accompanying sketch. It is drawn in faded and smudged charcoal, but it clearly shows the space in front of (what is now) the secondhand book store. It is a sketch of the grass in front of the large widow at the store's entrance, and it shows a very small fairy, wings blurred in movement. Whoever handles the fairy pendant feels lighthearted and bright.

Additionally, the display includes letters from residents at the time the capsule was closed, and the letters include a set of skeleton keys. The keys do not indicate what they open, but the letters all refer to them, and to the fact that they should be reburied if ever found in future.]

[Hannah S]
How's Si doing?

[After some hesitation.]

[Pippin P]
I'm sorry that me sorting my shit out, ended up hurting you. You don't have to respond to this if you don't want to speak to me, I'll understand, but it seemed under the circumstances perhaps I should apologize.

Hookerville lock [23 May 2019|10:29pm]


[I forget who all still belongs in the H-ville lock, if I miss yours, tag yourself!]
[After this.]

It's weird. I've never seen it this slow come summer. Half the trailers are empty with girls gone elsewhere, and I can't say that I blame them. I don't really know what to do to turn it all around. I guess I'm asking for advice.

[Bonfire: Everyone!] [23 May 2019|05:37pm]


Who: Everyone! Anyone!
What: Travis' bonfire.
Where: Lakefront, behind Mason's home.
When: Nowish/Night
Warnings/Rating/Add'l: Anything goes. In headers place: locations, warnings, indication whether a thread is open.

The bonfire. )

News-ish [23 May 2019|07:46pm]


[The stream of people who ordinarily filter into Hookerville of a late night, bringing with them cash and custom and all the pleasantries of the skin-trade have begun to trickle elsewhere. The rooms in the motel are permanently let, it would seem. And the girls who work within them are happy, well-paid and shockingly, appear to enjoy what they're up to. One man, notorious for enjoying the line between pleasure and pain a smidge too much, disappears overnight. He leaves a wife and a teenage son, both of whom are more relieved than grieving.]

[Leena B]
Did you go check yet? Or are you still sure it was voluntary?

[Adrian M]
How did your conversation go? I am sorry I vanished for a while.

[Hannah S]
Have you heard from Rory? He is not answering me.

You had a really nice axe in the woods that were not the woods. I would like to thank you.

[Divorce papers. They're delivered via courier, using the Webster family lawyer, and they're crazy generous. The lawyer was actually way disapproving, but she gets alimony until she marries, and she gets the lion's share of Holly's military earnings and his entire pension, regardless of her married-unmarried state.]

[After he receives the note, Ren can be seen leaving the neighborhood on his motorcycle. His apartment is dark for the rest of the weekend, and any texts/forum locks go unanswered until the following Monday morning.]

some letters and locks in the form of goodbyes [18 May 2019|04:19pm]


[lock to damian w]

Hello Damian, I wanted to let you know that I've decided to leave Repose. I may very well come back, but I decided to visit my family in America, then travel back home for a while and spend some time in Europe. I've gotten a bit complacent here, and it's time for a change. Which does not mean you get to stop talking to me and telling me how you are.

[lock to misha b]

Hello Misha. I'm afraid I've decided to leave Repose for the time being to do a bit of travelling. I know I can trust you to look after Damian, but who will look after you?

[lock to jamie m]

Jamie, I've decided to leave Repose and go on an extended trip. I'm afraid I don't know if I'll be back, but I insist you keep in touch.

[lock to daniel w]

Daniel, I'm leaving town and travelling to Europe. [...] If the mood strikes you, you should consider visiting while I'm over there. I know you don't travel much, but a change might suit you, you never know.

[note to ren s]

Ren, just wanted to let you know that I'm leaving Repose. I wish you only the best. Please take care of yourself.

[note delivered to tandy b]

Tandy, I'm terribly sorry to tell you that I've made the decision to leave town, and will be shutting the antique store as a result. I'm sorry to leave you in the lurch so soon after employing you - please let me know if I can provide you with a good reference.

misha b. [17 May 2019|10:30am]


[A few days after Liam's visit, after he's had time to calm down, think, and attempt to research on his own.]

Misha. I don't know if you may have already found out somehow, but Liam's dead. [...] His ghost came to me a few nights ago. I've read through Nilus' notebook over and over, but I can't find anything that could be a way to reach him. I want to help Liam, but I don't know what to do.

This town needs a non-bullshit party. I'm thinking weekend bonfire, yeah? All the marshmallow roasting, none of the drama.

Quaint little town you have here. Nicely delineated between this side and that side. Reminds me of home in a way. All you need is a gambling/opium/heroin den.

Delivery: Adrian M, Daniel W, "News" [15 May 2019|12:11am]


[Delivery: Adrian M]

[Delivered by owl, after sundown. A note. It simply tells Adrian that Newt is going to join Patrick for a time. He's taken his case, the dog, and the cats. They'll be back and please, take care of himself.]

[Delivery: Daniel W]

[Left under the door to Daniel's flat is a note from Newt. It says he's going abroad for a bit, but that he'll be back and would he please look after Adrian now and again.]

[Any forums locked to Newt do go through, but they remain unanswered. The cabin in the woods is empty and locked up.]

Public [14 May 2019|11:42pm]


[After this.]

The cats in town have gotten real big. I reckon them big cats best be careful fore someone starts thinking it's hunting season.
