encounter

What a mess. For whatever reason, Gluttony and Envy had gotten into a fight again– well, it had been more like Envy had bashed Gluttony’s head for whatever reason again, and they had started to rip each other apart once more. Oh, and who had to be the peacemaker? Exactly, yours truly. Getting Gluttony to calm down was– ironically– easier, two sharp words from Lust and he had stopped short, letting Envy go. The Jealous sin had been a tougher one, but there was nothing the Lascivious couldn’t accomplish.

However, after that little tussle between her siblings, Lust needed a break. She strolled out of their undercover apartment into the night for a walk.

– And she’d better not encounter anyone.

[[Inquisition]] (the-neutral-knife)

The incident at Laboratory 5 had left all of Central Command–at least those with the security clearance to even know of it—in a buzz. And with good reason, considering the so-called ‘heinous’ experiments that had gone on within its walls. Brigadier General Basque Grand had woven a twisted web indeed, or so it would seem. 

Archer had figured, however, that in an investigation (one he had launched on his own, without executive order) of a place so heavily involved in alchemy, it was best to find an expert on the craft. And who better to assist him than one of Grand’s own subordinates? Perhaps the Brigadier General had even given her some important information on the facility–although that was certainly a hopeful thought, and it was unlikely, to say the least.

Helier Cross, the Bandaged Alchemist–he’d read her file thoroughly, and had an idea of what to expect. Archer was rather eager to make her acquaintance, really. If her file held even a grain of truth within it, the alchemist would likely be a most refreshing colleague indeed.

Whether she be typically hard to find or his own simple bad luck, it was no easy task to track down the Major. However, Archer was a determined man, and as the saying goes, where there is a will, there is a way;one of his subordinates was able to flag the woman down in one of Command’s offices, and he was quick to hurry on over.

“Major Cross,” he said as he strode over to her, trying to catch her attention. “May I have a word with you?”

Another typical night in Central. Her shift had ended, surveillance over some big fish called Raven. Father had said he would be one of the easiest people from the Military to be persuaded to work for the Homunculi, and that she should start with him. So that she would do. 

Now, the Sin was enjoying the cool night breeze. Those were her favourite moments– where she could simply look at the sky, see the stars… and feel… how, exactly? Ah, she didn’t care. It didn’t matter. Wanting some time for herself wasn’t a crime, was it?

But… tonight, she wasn’t alone that night. She knew there was someone not too far behind her– if she was being followed or it was just a random citizen doing the same she was doing, enjoying a walk at nighttime. For now, she didn’t do anything, just kept on walking. Clad in her coat, she could easily pass as a human herself.

Kimblee was silent as he sat by the campfire, the chatter of fellow soldiers mere background noise. It had been a long day on the battlefield, which left Kimblee rather irritated. Thanks to the stupidity of his squad, he hadn’t been able to use his alchemy to kill, instead just giving orders to the foot soldiers. The others must have sensed his sour mood, as he sat alone by this campfire. Whether they didn’t bother him because they respected him or were afraid, Kimblee thought nothing of it. He sat with his hands folded, staring into the flames while his tongue ran over the Philosopher’s Stone hidden in his mouth.

yOOOO

I’m really sorry about the lack of replies recently–it took me about a week and $160 to find that both the charger port for my laptop AND the charger were broken

the port is fixed and I am currently waiting on a new charger but I’ve borrowed a friend’s computer and am trying to pump out as many replies as I can

again I apologize for pretty much dropping off the face of the planet but hooooopefully things will be fixed for good after this and I’ll be back to replying as normal.

(hopefully the tumblr tagging system doesn’t screw this up but if you’re tagged I am working on a reply to our thread, inbox me if I missed you)

My character has been sent to prison. Inbox me ☣ for their reaction to yours visiting them.

Kimblee was silent as his visitor entered his cell. Of all people, it was her, the one person he didn’t want to see him in her, in such an unbecoming state. Would she still adore him, as she had on the battlefield in Ishval? Would seeing him in prison change her view of him? A deep part of him, one Kimblee was sure had died years ago, hoped she would still look up to him, at least an an alchemist, if nothing more.

He forced a smile to his face, attempting to appear as if her presence had no affect on him. “Hello, Miss Cross. I haven’t seen you since Ishval. To what do I owe the pleasure of this visit?”

“Ah, Major Cross, I had something I wanted to ask you regarding the alchemi—”

F-forgive me, I did not realize you were, ah, l-looking into a more…p-personal matter. In fact—-this can all wait till later—I-I’ll just be leaving now…”

It was a reflex, really—possibly one that would save him were he in some sort of low-budget slasher, but unfortunately for Archer—-Cross was no slasher villain, homicidal tendencies notwithstanding.

“Goodness, I—-Major Cross, my apologies! Really, you shouldn’t have approached me from behind like that….”

thANK you guys<333
