Thought Control

Been doing a lot of thinking lately. Why? Because THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO FUCKING DO AROUND HERE. Thinking and talking to myself spares me from having to deal with these insufferable jackasses I now live with.  Why the hell do we even have Whats-her-name and Jokes, huh? The former is a faithless little shit, and the latter is just plain old shit. Fucking Gray at least has potential to be a crafter. Maybe even a fucking powerhouse one? That stuff is rough on the brain, I hear, which might explain the split personality thing. Whatever. I only have a couple uses for him in mind, if and when the time comes.

I can't believe I'm working for the frigging Whore of Babylon here. What a fucking downgrade. Had a chat with the most useless member of our little Family, about Miss Babylon's possible back-story. Former member of the Dumbass Bureaucracy we got rid of a few years back. Don't know if she was a Higher, or what, but I certainly had never heard of her. The story goes that, after the fall of the Bureaucracy, Father personally led her to a hidden cache of resources, and... Gave her secret knowledge, and power, so that she could rebuild our Family. I don't buy it. Where the hell was she during the whole Spencelight thing? How about when the Free Market became the, marginally, dominant sect of our Family? The timing of the whole thing seems really fucking suspicious to me. She pops up not all that long after Spencelight finally DIED. And the rumors are fucking true, might I add. She IS Redlight. No question. For some fucking reason a lot of these morons don't believe that. But what I want to know... Is she a NEW Redlight, or is she just lingering remnants of Spencer, playing some kind of game? Whatever she is... Redlight has picked up new tricks... But assuming she IS a new Redlight, I don't quite think she is up to par with the other two.

The last two Redlights... They were something special. The first guy, I dunno who he really was or why he was the way he was, was a goddamn terror. I wonder if that old rumor about him being Sage Jay was true... Funny, the little things you think about when you are bored, isn't it? And then there was Spencer. Too arrogant for his own good, but by Father, if he was in charge of this little Family, we wouldn't be in this mess with the [Redacted]. Oh MAN, can you imagine what kind of torture [Redacted] and [Redacted] would be under right now? I heard what he... Did... To Screamer... And he kinda sorta liked and respected Screamer. I can't even imagine what he would have done to Sloth... Heheheheh.

But the Devil is dead. And all we are left with is a leftover from the apocalypse. Heh. Big shoes to fill, Babsy. You haven't impressed me so far, and if I am unimpressed, I cannot IMAGINE how boring Father finds you. You have my leash for now, but don't forget who made that possible. If he abandons you, your leash abandons ME... Then I eat you, and clean up the mess you are letting lay around and spread.

It is stupidity, really. Free Market ethics probably made all the Mr. Funerals of the Family happy, but don't forget. They don't last long anyway. The long lasting members of our big, bloody, family are the little sweet boys and girls like ME. We're the tools that add variety, the spice of life, to Father's little hunt. We're the harriers who flush out the prey just when they think they have gotten an edge. We chase them down for Father's delight, and I have never ONCE killed a target Father didn't want me to. When push comes to shove... Most of the family will side with how things were, and should be. Mark my words.

Which reminds me. I REALLY need to go say HEY to some of our... Cousins. See what they think of the Free Market Ethics. Don't get me wrong here... I am sure they are perfectly happy with us not killstealing anymore, but that whole "Defend the Runners" bullshit probably has a few of them a little bit pissed. Maybe those darling Doctors might be willing to assist. I remember a couple that used to work with Screamer, from time to time. Maybe we can help them continue with their sacred mission from their Diseased God. Maybe the Beak will owe us a favor for it... Maybe... I dunno, it may be a stretch but at least maybe... Pull just ONE person out of the Castle. Maybe...

Pffft. Thoughts for the future, I guess. I would end this with a few vague threats of violence, but really, who the hell reads these anymore? The Blog fad died out, once Runners started figuring out that we did it too. Heheheheheh. Good times. But now it is just us, and some soon to be dead stragglers. Despite the Cat's intentions, and best efforts.

    1. Oh, what, you approve of that goddamn torture? Hell, I would drag Screamer out of there to KILL IT before I would just sit here and let Screamer ROT. And Worse. Do you have any fucking idea what goes on in that place? Do you know what happens to a person in the depths of the Castle?

      I do. And I am NOT going to let Screamer... Sam... Suffer for eternity there. Screamer's alive Alex. Alive. It isn't too late.

    2. right. because dragging it out here and killing it wouldn't at fucking ALL just send it right back to the Castle. assuming Sam would even be able to get killed at all at that point. it's not alive, Luke. It killed itself. David burnt the body. Whatever CAN come out of the Castle.... it won't be Sam. and, deep down, you know it.

      I would have thought you of all people would get that.

      you know I would have done anything to get Sam out back when we were working together. But I guess... I started asking the question. what's more cruel? pretending theres hope and just force Sam to repeat everything all over again (sound familiar?) or... admit when there IS no hope for a happy ending. admit that it all went fucking wrong, and all that's left is regret.

      Plague isn't just going to let Sam go. But I'll tell you what. you figure something out that Plague would take me in Sam's place, and I'll go along with it. Cause that's the only way it MIGHT not be too late.

    3. It hasn't been THAT long. Screamer was tough. Maybe Sam still has an intact mind. The Castle works slow...

      Goddamn Banks. Burning the fucking body. FUCKING COMPLICATES THINGS.

    4. I've been looking at trying to relocate Sam but storming the castle is a death sentence, even if you make it out.

  2. I feel like you didn't read the Ethics page. You couldn't have if you have to ask how they feel about us. And you're certainly not helping the cause if you're planning on bartering with the filth.

    That you would refer to that trash as our cousins is reason enough to see your cords cut. But hey, that's the high and mighty Morningstar for you isn't it?

    Planning and politics are only ever okay when his hypocritical ass decides to do it.

    1. Awww... Look at the kitty with his hackles up. Look furball, it was just an idea I had for a suggestion to Miss Babylon. I don't Plan, I don't barter and I don't do politics. I am no good at it, and you should know that by now. I just saw a potential ally in these hard times, and more importantly... The chance at reacquiring a former acquisition of ours. A Long Lost Family member. You know. I'm sure your boyfriend wouldn't complain.

      Besides, its not my fault our happy family is currently weaker and more pathetic than it has been in years. Strengthening the ties to our Cousins, and that is what they are you blind, arrogant, shit, might help us regain some momentum. I don't know about you, but I would very much like for things to return to business as fucking usual.

    2. Now, now, boys. I think we could all stand to be a bit kinder to each other, no?

      Morningstar, I appreciate your suggestions as much as any one else's, you should know. In the future, I might recommend that you keep sensitive ones like this off our public blog and bring them to me privately. That said, your posts are your own, I cannot stop you from doing with them as you will...minus a few redactions of course. ;)

      And Fracture, I'm surprised to see such anger, coming from you. Didn't think you had that kind of passion in you. You ought to know better than to let Morningstar rile you up. He has a reputation, after all. No action will be taken on the part of my operatives without extensive discussion. And whether Morningstar understands the Free Market Ethics is irrelevant- I have the means to enforce them as they were meant to be, and I will do so. I would appreciate if Morningstar were removed from your Bounty Board, but somehow I sense that isn't likely...

    3. I didn't put Mace's bounty up. I had to front $100,000 dollars of my own funds just to get Tempest's bounty put up. Sloth put that one up. If I had to guess, hes making things to barter over for your upcoming negotiations for Mrs. Rein.

      And as for our cousin's, I'll start being nice to them again once we've put them back in their place. Kneeling to them and waiting for them to self implode isn't about to put us back on top. Father's superiority will be rechristened in blood. Their blood. As they would do us. I will rip Sam's soul from plague's claws myself before I would see any kind of concession given to retrieve it. It was not his to take.

      You should not be surprised I have passion. I founded a fire cult at one point. But hey, even angry I like to think I stay civil. After all, true fire burns cold.

  3. Maybe you should go kill something, thinking is apparently bad for you...
