We finally managed to play a round of cards and, as a bonus, they were both newbies. Volstagg and Willow. I had to lend Willow a ring (that actually belongs to Del) in order for him to pony up for a round. Unfortunately Volstagg took some justifiable offense when I inadvertently Shanghai’d a week’s worth of his pay.

You see, I hadn’t actually seen a monetary transaction take place yet and was unaware that they used poker chips as money. Haven’t these trogs heard of Reichsmarks? This is why fiction never lives up to reality. It isn’t weird enough. ‘I don’t know what currency will be used to fund WWIII, but WWIV will be funded by bottle caps.’

I bribed Volstagg back into the game by returning his lot, and from there we had to play with practice tokens. It was a bit lame, but it is a start. Ultimately an invisible person (yes) joined the game and cleaned us all out. Times like these I have to face up to the fact that I’m not very good at cards. And that ghosts are real. No, there is a limit to what I can accept.

I promised my large admirer Volstagg that he would be my date for any future black tie events. MM is a creature of civilization, and she is a nonsense character without it, so it seems I have to do my part in bringing it back into existence. The thought of seeing him crammed into a suit is admittedly funny, and he’s still taller than me in heels.

Something about imagining a future does some small part to bring it about, for good or ill. Maybe if Stag has something to look forward to, he’ll be a little less reckless with his own life.

If the future must be imagined, the past must be recorded. Not much seemed to happen lately and I considered not writing a journal entry, but some little unsatisfied part of me started buzzing around in my head. I’m pretty sure this is something I have to do—not something MM has to do. The thought is heartening, because it means more remains of me than a memory of a dandelion.

How long have I been practicing these habits? Surely a long time. There is more hope in that sentiment than I dare to express in writing. Stranger things have come to pass, though.

Went down to the cellblocks with the rest of the pulchritude brigade (minus its queen, Cherry) to try to sweet talk some captured guards. The normal ones seemed a bit boring, though, so I tried to pry at some of the ghouls. It didn’t work, but someone has to do the things that probably won’t work. They might work!

Maleficent and Morgan. I have to admit they’re more attractive than me, which is obnoxious out the gate. That’s fine to accept if it’s someone like Cherry who has been handcrafted in an otherworldly realm of beauty, but these two are just a random pair of witches! I’m a Fairest too, you just can’t help with these feelings of vanity. While they are both witches (and I think, even the same kind of witch), both named after villains, both comely lasses in the extreme, and both of their names start with M—they are different as individuals. Mal is much more a straightforward, no-nonsense type. Morgan is a bit more chatty and friendly. That’s about all I know of them at the moment.

Saw the bird again, the one who marked us with the tattoo. Have decided to name it Big Black.

I had a useful conversation with Abe that was private enough, at least at the start, for me to keep it together. He’s interested in law, civilization, things like that. I’m interested in those things too, because they are a prerequisite for a host of other things I'm far more interested in. Say what you will about the Nazis (a great way to begin any sentiment), they had style to spare and a thirst for world conquest. They were proper villains. Rogers may be a villain, but he is the kind of lame and dreamless man that this fallen world is too full of. The whole world is right there, in the window, for the taking. He doesn’t want it. I find that offensive.

In the fullness of time I imagine faults would develop between me and Abe, but for the present we are simpatico. The words tragic and Byronic come into mind when I think of him. Yes, it's hero stuff. Just not the kind who rides in on a white horse.

And now I know the truth…and its so much worse than I thought. I think one day, I might have to kill Oz. I don't know if I can.

Mica…I don't know much about this one. She's, I suspect, easy on the eyes, but much like Cherry, beauty doesn't hold much of a trap for me. Not sure what that says about me.

Anyway, what she does have is a good grasp of what I'm trying to do, which is nice. Refreshing. I have only a few people in that sphere, and even fewer who understand. Like Rasha trusts me to do what's right, I think, but it doesn't register to her why I do what I do. Mica…she cut right to the core of it. If I didn't have other things to worry about that would have been unnerving. I think I'd like to get to know her better. It be nice to have someone to talk to as I puzzle out what I'm doing. Now if only I could get her to stop calling me Sir.

Doc on Stormy

Stormy is one of those good people that still gives me hope for humanity. She is, despite all the bad circumstance in her life and obstacles arrayed against her, empathetic and kind and still wanting to move the needle forward, and that is very rare. We need more people like her. In another life she, might have made a fantastic Doctor or Nurse.

But for the love of god woman, stop half ignoring my advice to take it easy! Blood is not suppose to remain in your circulatory system, not leak into the chest cavity! I know you really want out of this tin can and you care about these people, but stop slinging so much magic! You dont know it yet, but they are really gonna need you down there.

i don't like him he oozes sleaze ball charm, he's too smug and i don't trust him. something about him just makes my skin crawl

William's thoughts by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:55

this big ass if my oldest friend I've known him like three years. he's fun to be around usually getting himself into trouble with his mouth. good in a scrap, quite the lush but there is depth there though he seems to hide it i think people would like him better if he showed it

William's thoughts by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:51

i don't like him much he treats women like objects, someone should correct him. i've been told i'm not allowed to do it with my axe. but he is good at fixing things and i'm told we need that so i'm watching him if he goes too far i'll put him right

Volstagg thinks by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:45

she's quiet and stand offish i'm trying to get to know people but she doesn't seem to come out of cherry's room much unless there is a fight. she's a tiny thing that tries to swing above her weight in a fight maybe being a vampire removes fear but i she keeps i up she might get dead… er…deader, whatever.

William's thoughts by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:38

she sings pretty, everyone seems to drool over her i don't get it she seems nice but needs the attention. she seems to be with the vampire lady not sure how that works…. but i shouldn't think about that.

Volstagg thinks by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:31

i don't get why people told me to watch her she seems nice and smart. she cares about the children a lot which makes her special. i'm not sure i like the shadow much it feels off. don't like her bird lucky i didn't give it what for the way it was eyeing people. she's making me keep secrets i don't like it feels wrong but for her

Volstagg thinks by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:25

she is one tough nut to crack one moments she is nice and smiles caring about everyone then she goes and hides herself away in that shadow place pissed at the world. she keeps telling me off about everyone's hypocrisies it's frustrating but she's at least partially right and we need her so i'll keep trying to figure her out.

William's thoughts by David AllenDavid Allen, 31 Jul 2020 21:16

Abe will go to the Humanitarian mission.
