First, it starts with Burnie Burns. He is born in the city, grows old with it. He starts small, petty crimes committed by a boy with the ambition of a man capable of burning the whole city down.
He gets older, more experienced. He traces the city streets like veins leading to the massive beating heart of the city. Burnie learns the names of all the great bosses in Los Santos, the glamorous men and women that run it through the underworld. He sets his sights on them, on that big beating heart, and he attacks.
“Ramsey moved to Atlanta (GA) soon after her graduation from West Virginia University. With her bachelor’s degree in advertising and marketing, Ramsey began her career with McCann- Ericson Advertising Agency , where she focused on doing promotional marketing for Coca-Cola USA. Later she joined Hayes Microcomputer Products, Inc., as Director of Marketing Services, and worked there for five years developing user-friendly product instruction manuals. One of the software manuals Ramsey was responsible for won first place in an international technical writing competition. Her job with Hayes also put her in charge of special events, trade shows, and in-house advertising.”
“Ramsey never forgets how fortunate she is - not only to have fought the illness but also to have the opportunity to live the life she has chosen. Many of us today do not have the option to choose between a career and a family. For Ramsey, the privilege of such a choice is clearly one she revels in. "I get up early every morning to get my children ready for school,” she says. “I pack their lunches and set them off - then I have from 9:00 to 3:00 to participate in my own interests.”
“Ramsey has always been involved in her community and believes that volunteer work is an important contribution. Ramsey’s skills and professional acumen serve her well as she writes business plans for fund raising projects and job descriptions for committee workers and meets with area professionals and corporate executives to solicit sponsorships to benefit local causes. From her efforts with the Eggleston Children’s Hospital that raises over $1,000,000 annually to her work Iocally on such illustrious projects as the "Toast to the Artists” opening night event for the Colorado Dance Festival that will honor Mikhail Baryshnikov, Ramsey has impressed all around her.“
"Though she takes much-deserved pride in these labors, most of her volunteer work is centered around her children. This spring, for example, she was chairperson of the science fair at High Peaks, a Core Knowledge School. Ramsey found the entire experience to be very rewarding, and she enjoyed encouraging the young people’s talent. Ramsey has also co-chaired a successful fund-raising effort through the school known as the "Good Fairy Project,” which she helped create from its inception four years ago"
Devils Run When A Good Man Goes to War || The Sequel to The Vagabond
Title: Devils Run When A Good Man Goes to War Ship(s): Mentions of Freewood; Platonic Geovin Rating: M Warning(s): Mentions of Major Character Death, Mentions of Alcohol Use, Mentions of Minor Character Death Words: 3,411 words Summary: For a moment, Geoff couldn’t see a difference between the Vagabond, and their British hacker.
And that terrified him. Notes: Well, this thing has been ten months in the making, I think. Better late than never, right? Enjoy the feels! |D
They were all mourning, in their own ways. They were trying to cope with the hole left behind in their ranks, the loss of that steady strength they had come to rely on. But no one was suffering as much as Gavin, as the young man Geoff Ramsey, infamous leader of the Fake AH Crew, had basically adopted as his own son. No one was as broken upon hearing the words “The Vagabond is dead” than Gavin was; Geoff had watched the spark fade from his foreigner’s eyes as they all watched the newscast in horrified silence.
A young girl who grew up bright eyed and with rosy cheeks. She had two very loving parents, a father who had become a successful lawyer and a mother who was a typical housewife. They were a family who valued love and family above all else. Family dinners were never missed. Her father happily picked staying home with his children over having drinks with his friends at the poker parlor. The house was always full of noise and laughter despite the house’s size.
From a young age, Katrielle was told just who she was supposed to be by her mother. A proper young lady, ankles crossed, smile always present. From the moment she was born she was dressed in the best dresses, bright beautiful colors and her mother had no problem showing off her little girl at all the brunches and tea times. Her mother envisioned her daughter to be the perfect wife for a wealthy husband.
Her father on the other hand just wanted Katrielle to enjoy her life. He’s always doted on his daughter, wanted to make sure she had everything she wanted and had fun rather than spend her days entirely schooled. Regardless, Katrielle always did well in her studies, a private tutor for her beginning years until she was able to attend a private school for girls.
It became clear to her teachers and to her parents that Katrielle had a mind for the imaginative. Books became her favorite possession with a growing collection consuming her room. And if anyone was willing to listen, she’d happily rave for hours about whatever fantasy world she’d recently been reading. It extended beyond books. Katrielle loved to study maps, learn about foreign countries’ cultures, and dream about traveling the world. It could only be dreams.
When the war came, Katrielle’s heart bled. For the lives lost, for the soldiers and nurses going out to war, for the women and men left alone, the children who may have lost their parents. She wasn’t in the war herself but she felt her heart might as well have been. That had always been a problem for Katrielle. She felt too much.
Katrielle took up a job as a librarian against her mother’s wishes, especially with the war and wanting to keep Katrielle home in case anything happened. But she wanted to be more comfortable and needed to do something other than sitting at home drinking tea with her mother. It also gave Katrielle an excuse to live in the outside world, to spend time with her friends along the streets of the city and acting like any young girl.
The war touched her family as much as she hoped it wouldn’t. Her brother going off to war along with her father who was young enough still and he felt he had every obligation to go to war. While she thought of them as brave, she desperately wanted things to return to old times when there was laughter and everyone together. It seemed like hardly no time at all after that the man she’d fallen in love with had decided to enlist as well.
Despite being at home during the war Katrielle heard the stories from friends, family, customers, and even strangers. Already broken from the absence of her lover, she couldn’t stand the idea of people losing their lives. But she did her best to smile and keep moving forward. Her philosophy? If she kept smiling and did her best to seem happy, others around her would be happier. Even if it was by the slightest margin.
Now Katrielle is still working as a librarian, still arguing with her mother that she still had plenty of time to become a wife. She spends her days riding her bike with her friends, laughing along the river side, or shopping for little trinkets or books to add to her collection. She still dreams of bigger adventures and hopes the end of the war might mean she can do so one day.
