Merry Merry merry

Compared to some I've been around
But I really tried so hard
That echo chorus lied to me with its
"Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

He took her. He kidnapped Tia and stole my truck, stranding me and Shaun at the hotel. In the snow.  No. Nononono. 
Music. Breathe.

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
All of us under its spell.
We know that it's probably magic.
Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.

See, the thing is, Blake, sweetie, you want to protect her? You want to steal her away and keep her locked up to keep her safe because you love her? It doesn't work that way, buddy-boy, if it's against her will. You are not the dashing prince in this story, sweeping back in after going missing, to save the princess. You are, if anything, the witch keeping her in a tower. You made a mistake, turning her into the damsel in your head. But you know what? You want to play Ladderlocks, that's fine. Let's play pretend. Just keep in mind what happens to the prince, my dear. And I don't think her tears will heal you in this story. You've got worse things to worry about than anything else that might be coming out of the dark after you... If things haven't gone a certain way before I even get there. I'll probably regret saying this within ten or fifteen minutes of posting it anyway. I regret lots of things. Heh. I don't want you dead, don't worry. I just want you incapacitated. I want you incapacitated a lot. This is not something you do to someone you claim to love. This is not something you do to my best friend.

For life is quite absurd
and death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.

She shouldn't have to make this choice. You have no right. Neither of you have any right to do this to her. Why? Why them? Why anyone? How much do people have to hurt and suffer? Shepherd, you're a dead man. No matter how long it takes, even if I have to go down, too. The second you touched them, you were dead. This is not a game, and even if it were, you are not the one controlling the pieces, sweetie. You never have been. You like to play pretend, though. That much, I've seen. You like to pretend that you're in control and manipulating things yourself. You make me laugh. Oh look, bravado. This should be amusing. Bit late for that though, isn't it? No. No, because you want me to want you dead. You want me to want to hurt you. I... No. Nothing doing. I

Sing for the bartender, sing for the janitor, sing
Sing for the cameras, sing for the animals, sing
Sing for the children shooting the children, sing
Sing for the teachers who told you that you couldn't sing
Just sing

Need to do something. Breathing is a good start.
...Have a very Merry Christmas, everyone. I know mine will be memorable.

watching me. watching me. watching me.


  1. Yes. Go rush off and kill each other. What a magnificent Christmas present you two have exchanged.

    I dunno this Blake guy, but maybe it *is* better to just let him go? He might do better with Tia than you did with Marie.

  2. Ignoring the ignorance of a certain R. Easton, I must address our daring Heroine of the novel.

    Lissie, Lissie, Lissie. Sweet Delphi, don't you know better than that? I have not been with Blake since he was left behind! So cruel. So harsh. No one to comfort him in his time of need. Ah well. My point is, I've no clue what Blake's game is here, just that it exists. What he plays is beyond me. I only know that it will be someone's undoing.

    Better find your Sweet Sparrow quickly shouldn't you?

  3. Shepherd: Shut the fuck up.

    R. Easton: Shut the fuck up.

  4. Lis, hang the fuck in there. You can do this.

  5. Oh man, I can be mature too!

    Shaun: No, YOU shut the fuck up.

  6. Be careful Lis, You're strong enough to do this.

  7. Such. A fucking asshole. I hate Shep, but really, I only hate him because of sympathy for you lot.

    -sigh- I wish I knew what the fuck was going on. I'm sorry for your pain. I'm really just sorry I wasn't around for December. So much shit has happened.. I'm sorry. I'll try to fix this.
