Once Tony found out what happened, he was unsure how to react. He was livid with Bucky, Sam and Wanda. He felt dumbfounded being aware of what had been going on the entire time. In fact, when he first heard about it from Steve, he didn’t believe him.

Steve was also upset, but he wasn’t sure who to be more mad at. Wanda had messed with him movements to make him avoid any suspicions, but Bucky encouraged it and continued to defy him and Tony. There was no underlying reason why Steve and Tony didn’t want you to be in a mission. Your safety mattered to them and that was it. After Pietro died, it was hard for everyone, especially Wanda, to go back to do missions again. The Avengers are so used to winning; winning the battles and winning an even greater challenge- keeping everyone alive. So when Pietro died, it really put things into perspective.

Mad at Sam for even starting this all and being aware of what has occurred, Steve found himself frustrated. Sam used to tell him everything, at least he thought, but now he was hiding things from him. It made Steve insecure. The only person he could really agree with was Tony, and they hardly agreed. When bad things happened, it felt natural for Steve to go to Sam or Bucky and rant to them and receive advice. But now, it was just him and Tony. He had not really talked about it with other people, such as Clint or Natasha, but he wanted to keep it to himself at this point.

Natasha, on the other hand, wanted to talk to him.

When Steve was sitting on a chair in the kitchen, zoning out, Natasha gently placed a hand on his shoulder. Steve snapped out of his gaze and looked up at her, muttering an “oh”.

“Are you okay?” her eyebrows knitted together.

Steve nodded. “I’m just thinking.”

Natasha pulled out a chair next to him and turned to face him so they could talk. She really cared about Steve, and she hated when he was upset. After all Steve has been through, she never wanted him to be upset again. “Lay it on me.”

“Am I wrong?” he blurted immediately. He relaxed when he saw Natasha shake her head, but he still wanted to justify the case. “If my best friends are going against me, then I must have done something wrong. I just want y/n to be safe. Maybe I was harsh about it, but I thought they would know I was so serious about it.”

Natasha rubbed his back in circular motions. “They’re not going against you Steve.”

Steve looked up at her, waiting for her to elaborate. He thought she was illogical for even saying that. To him, it was so obvious that they were against him.

“You’re not the boss of them. If they were so serious about this, they would have to take it up to Nick Fury. They just really like y/n. She and Sam are pretty close. And Bucky likes her a lot. He probably just wants to impress her.”

Steve nodded. “So it’s nothing personal.”

“I don’t think so. It’s okay to feel offended, but in Bucky’s case at least, he’s just infatuated right with her right now. It has been decades since he’s been in a relationship,” she joked. “And Wanda, I wouldn’t be so mad at her either. She was just trying to help. Not that what she did was right.”


Steve walked in Bucky’s room. Bucky looked at him then turned his back towards him. Bucky was sick of feeling guilty, so he tried to reassure himself that what he did didn’t matter. He belittled the issue because it weighs nothing on a moral scale, compared to what he’s done before.

Steve sighed, and closed the door behind him. “You really like her, don’t you?”


Bucky slowly turned towards Steve, who was standing by the door. “I just wanted her to be happy, Steve. She really wanted to go out there and make a change. Prove to you, Tony and herself that she could fight like we can. It didn’t help that I had a crush on her because then I went through all this trouble for her. I saw her this morning - she couldn’t even look at me, let alone speak to me. She was crying. I made her cry Steve! I just mess everything up, don’t I?”

So many thoughts ran through Steve’s mind. He wanted to tell Bucky that he knew better, but he knew he already felt bad. He also wanted to just tell Bucky it was okay, but he didn’t want Bucky to think he could get away with anything and everything.

“You should talk to her,” Steve finally replied.

“I’m sorry,” Bucky surrendered his pride for humility. “I messed it all up. Just please don’t be mad at her or Wanda.”

“I won’t.”


Despite not working out with Bucky anymore, you practiced some things at home and at the gym. You didn’t want to lose any skill that you developed.

When you arrived on Tuesday, half of the Avengers were gone. Tony was there to your surprise. Tony had talked to you about what happened and apologized on his behalf, and you apologized too. While Bucky had made a huge mistake, you were still responsible for training without permission. Tony did not even seem bothered by it. He was more annoyed with Bucky and Wanda.

Tony did not mention anything about the romance between you and Bucky and you were grateful for that. It was hard enough having to deal with him; being reminded about the relationship would make you feel worse. When the conversation died down, he told you to go file some papers so you did.

You were in a separate room, filing a big stack. Popping an earbud in one ear, you turned up the music. This moment brought you to remember that you are just an assistant. You’ve crossed boundaries in two ways - trying to be an Avenger and having a romantic relationship with a Bucky. You tried to reassure yourself that your relationship with Bucky was not that big of deal, hence you kissed once. But the feelings were clearly still there and had he not messed up, you knew that would have been just the beginning of your romance with him.

Being an assistant seemed so displeasing at the moment. You wished you had just minded your own business and stuck to your assistant duties, rather than getting really personal with some people in the Avengers. Now you are upset with Sam, Bucky, and Wanda.

You gained an admiration for Clint for being honest with you and showing you what really happened. The truth was upsetting, but at least you knew it. Had he not told you, you still would be clueless to the situation.

You imagined about what would have happened today if you did not figure out the truth. Bucky would have led you onto the plane, hand in hand, and you would be fighting people, if you would even make it that far. Steve would have probably freaked out for you being there, and be confused when you would tell him that he had allowed you to be on the mission. Bucky would have tried to cover up the lie again, or Wanda would try to fix the situation with her powers. The ramifications would have been worse, so you were glad you found out.


“y/n.”

You dropped a clutter of papers because the voice startled you. Being so deep in your thoughts caused you to be distracted.

Bucky stood there. Once he saw the papers fall, he helped pick them up.

“Can I help you with something?” you asked, trying to put on your fake professional voice.

“Yeah, I need to talk to you,” his blue eyes burned into your eyes.

You looked away, avoiding eye contact. “Sorry, I can’t do that now. I’m busy.”

Your heart was pounding. Seeing him caught you by surprise because you thought he had left for the mission. Feeling just as nervous as you did when you first fell for him, you noticed your hands were shaky.

“Later? After work?”

You sighed. “Fine.”

But you did not plan to stay late and talk to him. Just looking at him made you want him to hold you and be affectionate with you. You were afraid to make decisions based on your heart rather than your brain.

“You’re Never Too Old to Reinvent Yourself!”

This is true! Reinvent yourself often as time passes, to avoid suspicion. Forge the necessary paperwork. Create a new identity. Fake your own death. Move to a new country and start over. The possibilities are endless.

– Helpful Abom PSA

tsukinoinaba  asked:

I'm curious. when Tedd's default gender is set to female, does she have a preferred body type? like, if magic WERE to change with no way to prevent it, Tedd ultimately decided to be female by default, and she could sculpt her ideal look before being locked in, rather than just a female body that most closely resembles her male body to avoid suspicion, is there a height, weight, hair length, and curve ratio she'd most prefer?

I doubt Tedd’s even 100% sure what the answer to this question would be.

Hotel Tips

I haven’t made an advice post in forever but I think this is important considering how much hassle hotels can be at this point. Here are some things that I do to avoid suspicion when staying at a hotel.

1.) Become a rewards member at a few chains that you will frequent. You will start earning points/nights and as your status increases, the likelihood of them hassling you is much less. They want to keep good customers.

2.) If you have a LLC, open a business credit card or debit card and use it to check in. Always make the reservations under your “do business as” name. That way you just look like a business traveler.

3.) If I am staying at a hotel too close to my house, instead of using my driver’s license, I’ll check in with my passport and say I lost my license. There is no address and most employees won’t even take notice to the address on your reservation.

4.) When checking in, I wear a fake wedding band and I always wear business attire unless it is the weekend. Always carry luggage with you.

5.) Try to survey the entrances and exits. Find different ways to come and go if possible.

6.) Try not to call for extra things like towels. If you anticipate needing more, pack some in your suitcase. Calling for extra towels when there is only one guest seems fishy.

7.) Try to space out your clients if possible and leave the room during the day at least once or twice. It’s really strange to stay in the room all day so try to get out and about.

8.) If you check out early, just leave the key in the room. They will know you are gone.

9.) Don’t overtip the maid. I’ve heard of some providers ‘bribing’ for silence but honestly, it’s a red flag. Certain hotels offer rewards to staff who find escorts so you might be shooting yourself in the foot .

10.) Make sure you hide all your stuff in your suitcase if you leave and have housekeeping clean the room. I guess you could lock it in the safe but I have never had a problem just tucking it into the bottom of my suitcase.

11.) Bring a plastic baggie and put your used condom wrappers and whatever else in there. Dispose of it elsewhere.

  • Obsessive yandere
    • Prefers to take care of matters in a civil way, meaning he’d rather take the long way, rather than the short cut. So, you don’t have to worry much about your loved ones getting killed.
    • Blends in with the crowd. Not you or anyone will know about his sick love for you, until it is too late.
  • Still retains the same personality (surprisingly), though he does it only to avoid suspicion. The only time he is sincere with his words, is when he is with you. He won’t lie to you ever, unless he has to. But don’t worry. The truth will always be buried in the snow and you’ll never find it.
  • Sweetness is always good, until it begins to make you sick. So, he has to hold back, since he doesn’t want to push you away. You have know idea how much he wants to hold you…
  • Preferred weapon: sniper gun
  • Also, Himaruya said that Finland is a “powerful person,” and it has been said in the archives that he is “strong, but with a cute face.” You know you don’t mess with someone, because they might be a secret badass (and is a secret badass).
  • You will feel like something is wrong the moment he sees you getting along much more better with another guy than when you are with him.
  • Honestly, you have no idea how much he wants to stab that guy. It is killing his insanity to have to hold in the urge to murder any man you get along with. Jealous much?
  • Very clean, and it would be difficult to catch, considering that he is a sniper. You can already tell he doesn’t torture.
  • Only stalks you when he is concerned about your safety, or if he thinks something will happen between you and another person. Other than that, he doesn’t have to, considering that he is your “friend” and he can just hang out with you.
  • Creepiest shit, because he can be on a massacre right now, and he’s just killing everyone with the most brightest smile on his face. All because he finally gets to kill all of his competition.

2p!Finland: “His love is like how he likes his coffee. Black and bitter.”

  • From the fanarts I see, he’s kinda similar to Kuro, minus the fact that he can’t control his temper.
  • He’s actually stronger than he looks, and doesn’t need a weapon to kick your ass. Combine his strength with his tolerance to bullshit, anyone who touches will go to the hospital tonight.
  • Preferred weapon: sniper gun
  • Possessive Yandere
    • Will kill you, either by accident or on purpose
    • Major trust issues
    • May treat you like an object from time to time
  • Are you seeing this? Okay. I’ll shoot him, just so you know what will happen if you leave me.
  • Also, he is most likely to traumatize you more than his counterpart. Just to letting you know.
  • He doesn’t torture, because he is more on getting the job done, rather than enjoying it.
  • More of a sociopath than a psychopath. He just doesn’t think before he acts (as you can see already).
  • He isn’t very careful about his murders. Sure, the body is gone. But you’ll smell something off about him, and that red smudge…

Ey iman edenler! Zannın çoğundan kaçının. Çünkü zannın bir kısmı günahtır. Birbirinizin kusurunu araştırmayın. Biriniz diğerinizi arkasından çekiştirmesin. Biriniz, ölmüş kardeşinin etini yemekten hoşlanır mı? İşte bundan tiksindiniz ! O halde Allah´tan korkun. Şüphesiz Allah, tevbeyi çok kabul edendir, çok esirgeyicidir. HUCURAT / 12
O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other, nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it…But fear Allah, for Allah is Oft- Returning, Most Merciful.

Resisting Temptation// Spencer Reid x Reader

Prompt: Takes place after “Revelations” Season 2 Episode 15. Reader is dating Spencer and is super worried after he has been beaten and abused by Tobias.

Requested by: Anonymous

Spencer awoke in the hospital that morning. Hotch had sent him to the hospital after he had been rescued from Tobias to make sure the agent wasn’t dealing with more serious injuries. So Spencer laid in the hospital bed hooked up to machines that monitored his heart rate and an IV in his arm as he was detoxed from the drugs that had been injected into his bloodstream.

He had been a bit reluctant to comply with Hotch’s orders but did so to avoid any suspicion that he had fallen into the grasps of Dilaudid. He blinked as he looked around and spotted you leaning on his bed, your head rested on your hands as you slept. He reached out to stroke your soft hair, unintentionally waking you.

Your eyes opened, completely bloodshot after you had spent the entire night crying. You had stayed behind due to illness during the case and the moment Morgan called and told you what had happened, you ran to the nearest airport and hopped on a plane to Georgia. You had arrived just minutes after Spencer was admitted into the hospital and he had already fallen asleep from exhaustion.

“What are you doing here love?” Spencer asked softly as you sat up. “You’re sick.”

You laughed softly at his words.

“You were taken by a psychopath, drugged and abused, and you’re worried about my cold?” You asked incredulously. “I was so worried. I thought I had lost you. Do you have any idea how crazy I felt not being by your side?”

Spencer stared at you as you rambled on about how worried you had been for him and momentarily wondered how he had gotten so lucky. He would have never pictured himself with a woman of your beauty and the fact that you were so kind and loving only made him feel as if he had the world with you.

You stood and leaned down near his face as you observed the look in his eyes. He was tired and the bags underneath his brown eyes were prominent against his sharp cheekbones.

“What did he do to you,” you whispered worriedly as your hand stroked his face.

“I’m okay,” Spencer insisted as he sat up and noticed that he had changed into a hospital gown at some point the night before. His eyes scanned the room as he searched for his clothing. He spotted the garments on the corner chair and gulped nervously as he remembered the glass bottle of Dilaudid in the pocket of his pants. “Do I get to go home yet?”

You stared at Spencer for a moment before turning to look at his clothes. You had noticed the longing look in his eyes and your profiler instincts kicked in. You stood up, walking over and picking up the pair of pants.

“No Y/N,” Spencer said panicked as he instinctively reached to grab you only to have his IV pull him back. He was well aware of your distaste for drugs and the people who abused them.

“Spence…” you said softly as you pulled out the small bottle, “what is this?”

Spencer looked down ashamed at being caught with the drug hidden away in his clothing.He hadn’t thought about your reaction when he had pocketed it. Your eyes softened as you walked back to him and sat down.

“Baby, you don’t need this,” you said softly as you lifted his chin with your hand. He met your gaze with a look of absolute fear. “You’re much stronger than this.”

“I’m not,” Spencer said with a shake of his head. He had momentarily died- a fact he had yet to tell anyone- and the experience was more than enough to unsettle him. The drug was a painkiller and would help him deal with the memory.

“Shut up.”

Spencer’s eyes widened at your tone as you looked at him in annoyance.

“The Spencer I know, the Spencer I love, does not let things control him. He controls himself,” you replied as you poked a finger into his chest. “You do not need this.”

He stared at you, the fierce look in your eyes as you spoke so adamantly enough to shake him. Here you were, the woman of his dreams, telling him that he was strong. It was something he had desperately needed to hear.

“You’re right,” he agreed with a nod. “Throw it away.”

You smiled as you tossed the glass bottle into the trash can.

“Now get dressed and I’ll sign you out so we can go home,” you said happily as you tossed him his clothes. He sighed as he watched you walk out of the room and dressed slowly.

He stood over the trash can now fully clothed with the hospital gown in his hands. He stared at the small glass of Dilaudid that seemed to stare right back at him.

“Come on. We’re all set,” you urged as you opened the door to his room again. He nodded, throwing the gown into the trash and covering his temptation. He grinned as he took your hand and led you out of the hospital.

I believe that operatives, when forced to adopt an identity which is difficult to maintain, attempt to complete their objectives in as timely a manner as possible so as to avoid suspicion. One hopes this commander is capable of understanding the words “not now.”

You’ve got zero imagination, huh?

Did ya ever see Makeshift at any of your weird kink parties? Wouldn’t it be weird to show up when he was there pretendin’ to be you?

anonymous asked:

Psych nurse here, just wanted to send a little message to let you know that your feelings aren't at all uncommon. It'll be tough but you can recover from your ED. If you haven't already got professional input, I'd definitely recommend it. Good luck with your journey to recovery. It'll be tough, but you will get there.

Yeah, it’s something I intend to disclose to my doctor. I made a very big mistake when I was younger by trying to hide my symptoms to the point where most of my family and friends still don’t really know how bad things were before. I understand the instinct to not talk about it, to actively try and avoid raising suspicions, but in the end I would only be hurting myself. 

I’ve begun informing my support system at home, so if nothing else they know to be aware of my habits and try to nudge me in the right direction. And I’m trying to implement a couple strategies to get myself back on track. 

Thank you for the support. Even though I was admittedly a bit freaked out when I originally made that post, I’m feeling calmer now. The problem is still there, but managing it feels a bit less daunting atm. 

I've been thinking about Kajii for a while, and so..

Kajii Motojirou

-I believe that his parents died because of someone planting a bomb in their house with him still intact
-The bomb could’ve been hidden in a lemon as to avoid suspicion, and this is how he discovers his ability
-He probably would’ve paid no mind to it at first; focusing on his future and studies. He’d become a scholar and a well-known scientist
-A scientist he was and still is, but the one thing that perplexes him so keeps coming back: Lemon
-An ability isn’t enough explanation for him, he’d research on it and do his best to figure this out
-Although he believes that it is an ability, as a man of science, he needs more
-He’d neglect his responsibilities as an academic man and focus entirely on lemons. They’d soon become his fixation, some of the most important things to him
-One single thing helped him keep his life, what other way is there to repay?

My brain just spit out some half-formed plots like

1. Fake!Dating between Keith’s mom and Thace during Mommy Galra’s pregnancy in order to avoid suspicion while they figure out what to do

2. AU where Keith is either half Altean or else has Altean grandparents or something and either

    2A. Zarkon doesn’t know. Initially Keith appears to be all Galra because, due to Altean Shapeshifting, he’s unconsciously mimicking the appearance of Galra since he’s surrounded by them. Zarkon doesn’t particularly take notice of cubs, but every now and then finds himself alone with Keith and, against all odds, forms an attachment. Disturbing cuteness ensues because Zarkon, of all people, with a softer side? Ummmm….

But Zarkon eventually, inevitably discovers Keith’s true parentage and rejects him in truly heartbreaking fashion.

Or

2B. Zarkon knows and is p much like “Hey. I can work with this.” and tries to have Keith infiltrate Voltron or something. Maybe Keith even goes along with it willingly at first idk

This is terrible and just bits and pieces  but….<.< I might mash all this stuff together and see what happens. 

anonymous asked:

ok so now what do you think is going to happen to lyste now that hes in jail but thrawn knows its not him? i hope they dont kill him because i like him and hes interesting character. Do you think that kallus felt a bit guilty for what he did to him because lyste was one of they few imperials remotely nice to him and probably considered him some kind of friend

Wow some loaded questions here first off I’m fairly positive Lyste is going to remain in prison and Thrawn may say he was executed for his crimes but (hopefully) kept alive because he is innocent but I wouldn’t put it past Thrawn to actually kill him. Most likely Thrawn won’t kill him and keep him a prisoner to be ‘interrogated’ to avoid suspicion from Kallus. 

As for your other questions…personally….no. I’m starting to see that though Kallus once let himself care and grow attached to his men after Onderon he refused to let himself to avoid the pain that came with it. To him now they’re all just cogs in the machine that is the Empire, easily replaced and not of any real worth (please someone help my poor child see otherwise). I could be wrong though, if he where to feel guilty about framing anyone it would be Lyste. If they did kill Lyste though I can imagine Kallus would feel some remorse for that because he would have been killed for his crimes and I feel like he would struggle with that.

Draco Malfoy Imagine #3

He knew he had no right for his emotions. It was his brilliant idea.

“You’re going with Dean Thomas!?” he pulled you into an empty classroom. “Yes?” you took a step back as you answered, well more like questioned as you were a bit surprised by his outburst. “Why!? Of all people you could possibly go with?” he scoffed, knowing that no matter who it was, he would have still reacted in the same manner. “You’re the one who said it was best that we found someone else to go with to avoid any suspicion! Anyways, you have Pansy, correct?” Draco looked anywhere but you, “Yes, but that’s besides the point, Y/n!” “What point!? You have a date and I do. If you have such a problem with your stupid decision, then maybe you should have just gotten over yourself and asked me!  Tears fell down your cheeks as you ran out of the room to your common room.

Now here he stood, unable to help the glare that was fixed on the Gryffindor that had his arm wrapped around you. That was how it had to be. He was a Slytherin and you were not. Draco was arrogant about the idea. He loved you. He loved you so much that when he saw you in a beautiful blue gown that fit you absolutely perfectly, he wanted it to be his arm that was wrapped around you.

Draco watched as the three wizards and the witch walked into the Great Hall with their dates as pompous music cued. Everyone clapped. Everyone but him.

The three schools had eventually joined the Champions, dancing to the music as they were taught. Although he was smiling at the girl he was dancing with, he knew he was lying to her and to himself that he was happy.

He looked up at just the right moment. He never felt more angry than in that moment. He would surely argue that his hatred towards ‘Potter’ as he would call Harry was nowhere near as great as his hate for Dean.

Dean had began to lean into you. You weren’t exactly are if you wanted to kiss him or if you wanted to make Draco jealous. As you were in a debate with your choices you saw Dean stumble backwards.

You gasped as you recognized the platinum blonde hair. “Never try to kiss her! Ever!“ he nearly shouted, his hand finding yours. Dean looked just as shocked as you. You saw hurt in his eyes as he quickly walked away.

“What is wrong with you?” you asked, your voice hitching up an octave. He sighed, “I get it if you upset and you don’t want to see me ever again but-” You cut him off, pressing your lips to his soft ones. You wrapped your arms around his neck, pulling him closer to the kiss.

“Be my date to the ball?” he chuckled, obviously trying to make a joke about the situation. You smacked his head; not too hard, but definitely not gentle. “Just dance with me, Draco.”

Story Elements: Life as an Immortal

Anonymous asked:

I’m having trouble with is what to look for/research when I have an immortal character that needs money (when it comes time for them to be involve in society) to purchase things, find a job, house, etc. I figured that they have to constantly come up with new identities & relocate after 10/20 years have pass (to avoid suspicion as to why they haven’t age), but how would they accomplish that? What would they need to know and do? What to avoid? I’m guessing airplanes, hospitals & committing crimes?

This is kind of hard to research, so I’ll give you some ideas about how it might go and you can research from there. :)

To start with, I think it depends a lot on what type of immortal character you’re dealing with. Many have powers that may help them influence people to provide them with money, goods, and services that they might need. Some immortals start out as mere humans with regular human lives, so they may enter their immortality with some money and possessions already to their name. They are also quite capable of having jobs and engaging in business transactions, so it’s very possible for them to have some income. The average person is likely to come into possession of various valuables over their course of the lifetime, whether these are things that they win, are given as gifts, or are bequeathed in some way. Immortals have many centuries during which to rack up these types of possessions, which is likely to slowly bolster their net worth. So, having said all of that, it’s not at all unrealistic for your immortal to have a bank account, stocks and bonds, various lucrative properties, and a safe (or several) filled with various valuables. 

As far as identity? Even mortals are able to successfully pose as someone else. Identity theft makes it possible (and sadly unlikely) for people to obtain all the things you would need to function in the everyday world, such as a bank account, driver’s license, social security number, birth certificate, passport, and other identification. In other words, there’s really no reason your immortal can’t fly on airplanes, purchase property, start a business, etc. There are actually people who deal in this sort of thing–who fabricate fake IDs, documents, and other things necessary to create a fake identity. More than likely your immortal will “have a person” or will know the best people in the business.

Committing crimes and hospitalization should be moot points, for the most part. Again, immortals are supernatural by nature which typically comes with some sort of power. Years of experience makes them masters at committing crime without getting caught, but if they do get caught, they can use their powers to upend the situation and get away safely. As for hospitals, immortals would have little to no need of hospitalization. If they’re not fast healers or impervious to wounds and illness, they at least have the luxury of knowing no human injury or disease can kill them. They might be in pain or discomfort for awhile, but they will heal without the mortal concern for things like infection or bleeding to death. And, there’s no reason they can’t show up in a hospital to visit someone or conduct sneaky business of some kind. 

Depending on how old your immortal is, it’s possible they may have old homes scattered across the country. These may be maintained under the guise of being a family home passed down through the generations. They might hire a caretaker to manage the property in their absence. As long as the property taxes are paid and the property is maintained and insured, it’s unlikely that anyone official would ever care who the property actually belonged to. Or, they might have one such property and purchase or rent smaller properties when they go to new towns. Eventually they can go back to earlier homes under the guise of being a grandchild or distant descendant of whoever they pretended to be originally. An example of this would be the Salvatore brothers in the CW Network’s popular show The Vampire Diaries. In this case, it would seem that a descendant of their half-brother build a boarding house which was then passed through the generations. When the brothers come to town, they stay at the house and ultimately take it over after one of them kills the distant half-nephew. Presumably they have taken whatever legal measures necessary to take over ownership of the house under their current IDs, and when they eventually have to leave, they’ll probably have to find someone to manage it for them until enough time has passed that they can return posing as descendants of one or both brothers.

Research-wise, you might want to start with identity theft to learn about what it is, how it happens, and what exactly people are able to get away with. This will give you a good idea of how your immortals will function with fake identities. Beyond that, you might want to take a look at some existing stories with immortals, such as The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Twilight, etc. to see how it’s handled there. Finally, see if there’s anything special you can do with your specific group. If there are a lot of these immortals, maybe they hold sway in high places and are able to get “legitimate” new identities whenever needed, or maybe they can use powers and magic to get all their ducks in a row. Who knows? ;)
