Akande: I’m going to need you to get to work on our outfits for the upcoming masquerade–

Gabe *with perked up ears* : Masquerade?

Akande: Yes. I need you to –

Gabe: Masquerade! Paper faces on parade!

Akande: Please stop–

Gabe *starting to dramatically put on a Phantom of the Opera mask*: Masquerade! Hide your face so the world will never find you!

Akande: Are you done yet?

Gabe: No. I’ll get to work on the outfits but I’ll be blasting the entire soundtrack while I work on them. Also, I get to look like the Phantom of the Opera.

Akande: If it gets you to stop singing.

Gabe: No promises.

A/N:  Let’s find out a little about our OC, shall we?  



May, 2016

So, where does this story begin?

Some would say in September of 1989, when a wounded It went deep into the earth to heal, sleep… and to plot.  Some would say it begins when It awoke once more, in the summer of 2015 to feed upon Its game.  There are those who say it begins upon my own awakening, nine years prior in the fall of 2008.  Others would argue that it begins on the day I met Pennywise the Clown.  And then there are those who go off the deep end, who begin to rant about how Pennywise was doomed the moment Its opposing force, some great big Turtle floating in space, choked on a couple of galaxies.  But all I know, all I remember, are the ramblings of some madman dressed in a crisp black suit.  He spoke as if from far away, spinning a tall tale of how the balance of some cosmic, mythological structure in the blackness behind the universe hung by the guardians of the beams.  He talked of how they all needed to come down. It all seemed ludicrous then, but now I know that he spoke as though I would somehow come to play a part in it all. Perhaps his words held no real meaning, perhaps they were simply the disjointed, incoherent, and angry mumbo jumbo of some space lunatic.  

But now I know he spoke of It, and the one certainty which came to pass years later.  And now, in these short, few months in which I fell under the spell of Pennywise’s guises and floated in the deadlights that danced in his eyes, I grew to understand him.  To like him, need him.  Love him?  Maybe.  Yes, maybe that too.

“Shh, there there,” I whisper as I place the small, warm bundle in the nest.  A sound that is both a sigh and a chuckle escapes my lips as the bundle stirs and begins to whine, then quiets and goes still.  Part of me wants her to wake just so I can look into her eyes and fall in love all over again with those two, shining yellow embers.  Instead, my hand reaches out and I smooth back the red wisps of hair that stubbornly stick out around her head.

Just then, the fear strikes me.  It is a primeval cold that seeps into my bones and makes me stiff with dread.  The fear is not my own, and I cannot truly rationalize it, but it still leaves me paralyzed, and against my nature, I fear my own mortality.

“They’re coming” the voice behind me says.  I turn to find Pennywise entering the nest.  He collapses in my arms, and I try my best to soothe that fear, that white silver pain that leaves him blind and terrified.  

“They can’t kill you” I say, wrapping my entire body around him.  “You can be hurt, threatened, cornered.  But never killed.  You’re the Eternal, the Eater of Worlds”

He shudders, and my embrace tightens.  

“Do you hear me?” I say forcefully, pulling back to look him in the face.  He nods frantically, trying his best to smile and look composed, but I see the desperation in his eyes.  They’re bloodshot, and the black kohl around his eyes is glistening with tears.

“I called for them.  I sent them my calling card in blood.  And when they get here I will kill them all!  I will cast them, shrieking and insane into the deadlights.  And then…”

“…we will feast” we say together “and doze for a while”

He presses his lips to mine, and as I taste the sweetness of his mouth, I feel his lips tremble.  The words of that man in black come to mind once more, and I can’t help but think that the ka-tet of six who were once seven are agents of that man.  Or perhaps… I was.

The portal must remain open” were the last words he had said before he disappeared into the bustle of Main Street, leaving me stranded in a town I did not know.

So, where does this story begin?

Paper Faces on Parade - Jon/Sansa for @valar-morekinks round 4.0

“You’re telling me you didn’t recognize me?”

Jon huffs and rolls his eyes, half turns away from her as he takes a step away, back towards the ballroom full of boozy laughter and jazz band renditions of pop songs. Her heart pounds, pulse a panic at the thought that he’s walking away again. It’s for Aegon, right?


No, it wasn’t, and she can be as defensive as she wants with him, but it doesn’t erase the fact that the second Jon slipped outside and she saw it was him, her heart leapt like a gazelle, that she very nearly ran to him as quick as one.

“Of course I recognized you,” he mutters, dress shoes scraping on the damp brick beneath their feet as he turns back towards her, though his eyes are downcast, grey shadowed to black from his mask and the late hour. “Even with that green dye in your hair, I recognized you from across the room.”

“So did I,” she murmurs without thinking, and she wishes she had accepted another glass of champagne before she came outside, not that she isn’t fizzing over as it is, half-drunk from the lightheaded way she always feels during confrontation, no matter how polite. “I think I have you memorized.”
