When humanity
Is trapped in darkness
Only the bravest
Will let hope be their guide
To seek out
The light

August 8, 2072
Dear Journal,

My father's father used to say that the buildings shined with light, that people didn’t have to be afraid of their neighbors because there was some sort of order to things. The buildings still remain; their power is just long gone. We grew up in this world, a world that forged us into who we are, living under the empty shells that our ancestors created. He said that these metal structures that now only hold dozens, used to hold thousands due to dwindling population. Some of us still hope though, hope that we can return to a day when women don’t have to fear for their children, and we don't have to sell our freedom to anyone willing to offer us protection from the elements. Almost everyone has lost hope, but there are rumors. Rumors of a city with that power again, a city that has discovered the secrets of the past. That's why they took them. My family. Because they knew too much. I’m going to it, I’m going to try and reach it. I have others with me who dream of sharing that power for the world. I've managed to gather them all here now. We each have our own reasons for reaching the city, but we all have the same need to get there. The same ambition to see it with our own eyes. The leaders don’t want that though, the ones who think there better than all the rest. The Militia. They see the idea of a return of this power as them losing their own. The last thing they want us to do is hope, and that’s all we can do. Hope, and survive. So they've sent hunters after us. But I have to go now. The longer I wait, the longer they have my family.

Wish me luck journal,
Chloe White

This TV show trailer is where I got my inspiration. The plot isn't exactly the same, and you don't have to watch it to understand this roleplay, but it would be a good idea to help you see where my inspiration came from. My Co-GMs helped me with plot development. The Diary entry is from Whscorbin, the banner is from Fallen and I, the second Gif, I made, Fruity helped us put together the banner, and all the other pictures are mine and a little editing.

Theme song:
This song is the PERFECT theme song for this RP. Listen to it(; Muse- Uprising.





ImageThe Blackout:
The world used to be a very different place. Humanity was once strong. The hunters. Not the hunted. The world was theirs to conquer with enormous destroying machines, paving their way through the wilderness. But above all, their world was light with something called electricity.

But now we are weak. We cower in fear of the wilderness we once so boldly conquered, hiding in the empty skeletons of buildings that once held thousands, cities that once held millions. We sell our very freedom to the highest bidder. What are we bidding on? Protection. Nowadays, we’re willing to give up what we used to call rights, in order to feel safe.

So what happened to us? How could a civilization that was once so powerful, simply crumble?

The answer is surprisingly easy. We grew too confident. Too dependent on our technology and too secure in our place at the top of the food chain. So, when someone threatened to take that away… We didn’t quite know how to respond, but with laughter. After all, who could possibly just shut off the world like a light switch?

So we ignored the threat.

And when the world turned off on August 3rd 2013, chaos was unleashed. Everything stopped. Engines, electricity, batteries. Every modern advancement we’d ever made… Just flipped off, never to turn on again.

And no matter how hard the world’s greatest minds worked for years and years, no one succeeded in turning our precious technology back on. The rest is as follows: We crumbled and five years of complete chaos followed, destroying, not only the world’s advancements in technology, but in government as well. The resulting riots were unstoppable, and this time is now known as The Panic.

When things finally started to settle down, the world’s population had been cut in half. Most of us had never even set foot in the wilderness before, and could hardly live without elevators, let alone cars. Survival of the Fittest took place, and the weakest were slowly killed off. We were scared, cowering.

And out of our fear, rose The Militia. Some rumor that they were the ones that turned off the power, for they now hold it. They are the ultimate dictators, run by a sibling pair. The Militia is strict, enforcing rough laws on the people, pushing them around the way they want, not above torture, the word “inhumane” practically flew out the window for them.

So why do we let them do this to us? Surely there are more of us than them, right? The answer to that is simple.

We’re afraid. Afraid of chaos, afraid of the elements, and afraid of each other. Without the Militia, who’s to stop our own neighbors from killing us for a meal? Who’s to make sure everyone’s fed? Who’s to keep the creepy creatures of the night in the forests where they belong?

But there is hope. In the form of rumors. Rumors of a city with the light again. Rumors that the Militia will do anything to stop from spreading.

So. The question is: Are you brave enough to set out in search of this city, with nothing but hope guiding you, and fear hunting you?

ImageThe Plot:
New Haven is the seat of power for the Militia, the center of their control. It’s also where the largest population is and where almost all goods have to go through, the Militia likes to be able to keep a firm hand on everything. In recent years the Militia has become all the more brutal, killing people in the streets for violations as simple as looking at them wrong. Rapes have risen and the Militias’ soldiers take whatever they want without paying, any who try to stop them end up dead or in the Pit.

The rumors of a city with power, nicknamed Utopia, has caused some people to hope for a change. Hope for a time when the Militia won’t be in control, this led to the largest crackdown that New Haven has ever known, it would later be called the Purge. Dozens of random people were gathered together and killed, their only crime being that they lived in the city. The Militia leaders made it clear that anyone who spoke of Utopia or change would suffer a fate worse than death; they would be forced into slavery in the Pit. An inescapable prison-mine that the Militia lowers convicts into. There is no way out and they only get food in exchange for the minerals that they mine. One woman had a dream though, a dream of reaching Utopia and as such she and her two sisters planned out their trip, planned a way to get out of New Haven and find this place, and they happened to be equipped with something more precious than gold. A map to Utopia. It’s rough, old, may not be accurate, and was drawn out by a grandfather the Militia declared insane, but it’s the best shot they have.

In the dead of night though the girls’ sister was taken and thrown into a place worse than the dreaded Pits, from which there had never been a survivor. The personal prison of the Militia. Spots in this place were reserved for only the worst of traitors, people whom the Militia hated, but needed for information. In anger the sisters went and gathered together a handful of people, people who would help them get help for their sister and free the city from the Militia. One of the first ones that they invited in was a smuggler, a man who had more than a little history of getting past the Militia, a pair of teenagers who wanted to leave the city, and a woman who had lost both her parents during the Purge. More people came though, people who had lost friends and family to the Milita, some even who came for their own reasons. One was even ex Militia, leaving when he became sick of the way things were, a thief on the run with her only chance of escape being Utopia. They might not have been the best of friends, some didn’t even know each other before it all began and some even had issues with one another but there was one thing that they had in common. They need Utopia to exist.

Toggle Rules

Image


1. Reservations
Reservations last 24 hours. That's it. Harsh, I know, but I really hate when someone reserves a spot, then we have to wait two days to see if they'll make it, then, when they don't we have to wait another 4930809834 days for it to be filled again. No. One day from the time you reserve it. Don't take that too seriously though. I'm totally cool with you taking more time, as long as you let me know. I can't stress that enough. You don't have to reserve a character either. For this type of roleplay, I really don't care how many characters there are. There's no limit. (Unless, of course, we get a million girls and no boys) So you can just submit a character and I'll be likely to accept if the sheet looks good.
2. Characters
Okay, here's one of the most important rules. Characters. For one, they have to be realistic. I don't want any cowboys or superheros. No. I mean, get real guys, when have you ever seen a cowboy running around in the wilderness, hiding from hunters? Sounds like something out of a terrible Will Ferrell movie. (No offense to anyone who likes him, he has had some good ones.) Also, they can't all be super badasses who have had rough lives that have made them strong and now they're ready for combat and all of a sudden know how to survive and kill with no emotional or physical side-effects. No. Seriously? If I get a million sarcastic badasses, I'm sending a huge ass wildfire after all your characters. Make some who, are maybe typically happy people, clinically depressed people, sweet kind people. Come on guys. Mix it up. Some powerhouse characters are always good for a RP, but before you join, please make sure and check the personalities of the other characters. I'd like to see variety and uniqueness. Show me something new (but realistic) and I'll be a million times more likely to accept you. Your character is not perfect. They will miss their shots or attacks sometimes. They do have weaknesses. They can be injured. If you forget these things, don't think I won't remind you by sending an unkillable hunter out after your character, and allowing them to die slowly.
3. Character sheets
Fill out all of the requirements as I've so helpfully instructed or you wont be accepted. And this also means that, when I say three good paragraphs, I don't mean three paragraphs. I mean three good paragraphs. I really shouldn't have to put a sentence limit on it. That's just weak guys, really. I'm sure you can come up with three, nicely flowing paragraphs that make sense and don't repeat themselves a million times for the sake of taking up space. To be accepted, you have to at least be able to make sense for gods sake. Also, to increase your chances of being accepted, make it pretty! Lol, I loveeeeee multiple pictures, different colors, and all that good shit, the more coding, and effort you show, the more likely you are to be accepted(:
4. Respect
Respect me, my decisions, my Co-GMs, others, my roleplay, and characters. If one of my Co-GMs says something, listen. Just because they're not GM doesn't mean they don't have authority in here, and I discuss all decisions with them first, so odds are, if they ask you to do something, it's because we agreed on it first. (I realize some characters wont get along, but don't make your character a bitch or a know-it-all. There is nothing more annoying.)
5. PG-13
I'm totally fine with swearing. I use it frequently. But please, for the love of all that is good please do not make every single line your character says have a cuss word in it. If you talk like that in real life, you seriously have a problem. Go get an attitude check or something. When it comes to sex, I don't want to hear anything detailed and specific okay? This roleplay is about survival, not having sex. You can make out and do whatever until the clothes are off, then its fades out or whatever you use. And finally, with gore. I don't mind it, but it's better if it's not tooooooo bad. Like really. Is it really necessary to tell us that, when you cut someone's head, you could see their brain and the blood sprayed for a mile? Like, have you ever been to science class? That's not realistic, and, quite frankly, disgusting. If you want to give us a lesson on the parts of the human brain, do it somewhere else.
6. Posting
Okay, this is a literate RP, not semi-lit, or beginners. I'll do my best not to be too picky with you guys, but I also don't want you to take advantage of that bit of leniency. I want to see at least three paragraphs per post min. Good ones, that flow and make sense. Even on my worst days, my posts are never less then five paragraphs. I think you can manage three. Also, as for time, this is a survival roleplay, and I'd like to keep it fast-paced, otherwise it gets boring fast. So please post at least four or five times a week. And, if you can't handle that, don't put yourself in positions where other characters have to rely on you. Also though, for you speedy posters, don't post back and forth so much that I'll log off and there's 27 posts, log back on the next day and there's 89. Like, what? Lol, pace yourself a bit please. I don't want to have to read all that. However, with action RP's, it's easy to kill off characters. If there's more than four days in between your posts and you haven't notified me of a reason, I'll kill your character.
7. Have fun
Believe it or not, I'm a very fun-loving person. I'm not all rules. Please, have fun with this. I love meeting new people, and I'm pretty lenient. If you'd like to be friends on RPG, I'm so up for it. I love having RP buddies. And don't be afraid to ask questions or make suggestions, please! I love feedback, and I wont bite. Promise. Me and my Gms are here to help you with anything you need. I like to know what's going on and what you guys are thinking. You don't have to use the OOC only for RP related things.

Location: Watching the Militia guards from a tall building


The weather was perfect. Cool, but not cold. Warm, but not hot. The night sky was clouded, but not so densely you couldn't see the moon, or stars, twinkling against their velvet black background. The clouds were dark and grey, heavy with the promise of rain the next day. On the wind, a chilly breeze blew every so often, shuffling branches, shifting the shadows of the overgrown city of New Haven and its surrounding forests. Perfect for making an undetected getaway.

Chloe Rose White was standing high in the remains of an old building. One of the tall ones, that used to stretch high in the sky. Really all that was left of the building were three floors with the full package, (walls, ceiling, and floor), while the rest of the building was all crumbling, rusting framework. But, there happened to be an old staircase in the back of the third floor that, if you followed it all the way up, would eventually rise to the single remaining floor, the thirteenth.

Not many were brave enough to venture up the old staircase. Parts of it were missing, and once you got to the top, the floor had multiple holes in it, that, if you weren't walking carefully, you could easily fall through to your death. As children, the citizens of New Haven often dared each other to climb to the top in the dark. If you were brave enough, you were one of the cool kids.

But Chloe wasn't there on some silly initiation business. No. She was on a mission. She had a bag strapped tightly to her hip, a quiver of arrows resting on her back, a silver bow in one hand, and a pair of binoculars in the other. Next to her, on the floor was a bucket of gasoline she'd taken out of as many, empty, old, wheeled, machines as she could, and a pile of rolled up socks.

With the binoculars, Chloe watched the perimeter of the city for Militia. They were always on duty, making sure no one without a traveling license got in or out of the city. She bit her lip. Please let this work. She thought to herself as she watched the group of Militia guards on duty at the east entrance to the city. Her job was to distract the guards and signal a group of runaways hiding in the shadows. She checked the pocket in her bag, just to be sure her traveling license was still there. They were precious things, and nearly impossible to get. You had to take five years worth of tests to get them, and the Militia was making it especially hard now that the rumors about Utopia were spreading like weeds. But Chloe knew a guy who'd forged hers for her. Still, the guards at the gate held the right to deny you, even with a traveling license, if they thought you were suspicious, or "incapable of handling the wilderness." Something about not wanting to risk the already dwindling population, but Chloe knew better. They didn't care whether you lived or died.

Placing down her binoculars, she rubbed the back of her neck and groaned, setting about her work. Quickly and quietly, she soaked each of the sock bundles in the gasoline, then lodged them each on the tip of an arrow. Three in all. One was for the guards. The other two were to signal the group, lead by her twin, hiding under a tree just a couple hundred feet from the entrance.

Taking a deep breath, Chloe raised her silver bow and lit the socked end of the arrow so that it's flames illuminated her little watching post. Slowly, she pulled the arrow back and let out her breath a little at a time as she aimed carefully.

Then she released, sending the flaming arrow, streaking through the air. Quickly, Chloe picked up her binoculars and looked. She was supposed to distract the guards, then send a signal to the others that it was all clear. If they moved, and the guards hadn't seen her arrow, it was all over. Through the lenses, she watched as all of the guards left their post to chase after the arrow.

Once they were gone, Chloe breathed a sigh of relief, shooting two more flaming arrows. This time though, they shot through the air, piercing the bark of the tree that the runaways were under. "You better grab those arrows Cleo, or I'll kill you." She grumbled to herself as she grabbed the bucket of gasoline. Working quickly, she destroyed her evidence, and made her way carefully across the crumbling floorboards to the stairs. Moving as quickly as possible, without killing herself, Chloe took the stairs two at a time. On her way up early that morning, she'd memorized where the holes were and knew where to leap, swinging across the gap on the occasional pole, or flying through empty air, only hoping she'd land on the other side.

At the bottom, she brushed herself off and made her way to the east enterance. When she got there, the group was nowhere to be found, and the guards were back in place. She could only hope they'd gotten away safely. "Looking for something ma'am?" One of the Militia guards asked, and she whirled her head around to look at him. Shit. Maybe he'd hold her back because he thought the way she was looking around frantically was suspicious. Had she already messed things up? How long would Cleo and the others wait for her until they realized she'd failed them?

As she looked at the Militia officer, she wondered if he worked with her parents. Do they know them? She thought silently. Make jokes over lunch? Go on missions with them? "Uhm yeah." She said, pulling out her forged traveling license and handing it to him. "My name is Jessica Jones." She said with a smile. "I'm headed towards Westwood. My aunt lives there and is really sick." Her lies were smooth, but there was always the chance that he could hold her back, or notice a flaw in her forged papers. Silently, Chloe prayed that he couldn't hear her heart thudding away in her chest.

Location: Her office at Militia HQ



The Militia had control of the best in-tact building in New Haven. It was a skyscraper with a needle that reached high above, even the tallest trees and sat directly in the center of the city. It was the only building that pierced the thick cloak of trees that hovered over New Haven. It was evident that the city had not always been overgrown. That another life had died somehow, but the Militia had long-since stopped teaching the history of The Blackout. Knowledge meant power, and the Militia wanted to be the seat of all that power. So, while they still had school, only the richest could afford it, and they didn't teach anything about the Blackout. History began, when the Militia began. Those who were lucky enough to make it into the Militia, had the privilege of learning what happened from a special training school that they had to attend for two years before being appointed full officer.

The whole of the Militia headquarters was kept in tact. Only a few, rarely used floors at the top were crumbling and Scarlet Rivers and her brother, leaders of the Militia, made sure that the building was kept in glittering condition, shining like the sun.

"M-M-M-Miss Rivers?" Scarlet heard a stutter and looked up from a file on her desk. Paper was another rarity, but The Militia had scores of it. She was a workaholic, so sitting at her desk, flipping through file after file at 12:13 in the morning, by candlelight, was not unusual for her. Candles. Another rarity that the Militia had boxes and boxes of.

"Yes Bret? Spit it out, you know I hate when you stutter." Scarlet said, leaning back in her chair to place her hazel gaze on the small man standing in her doorway. Absently, she used one hand to twirl the tip of a knife on the surface of her desk smoothly.

"There's been a um... A breakout ma'am. Runaways." He came forward cautiously and placed something on her desk before sprinting away, ducking out of the doorway just in time to miss the knife Scarlet had hurled after him, lodging itself hilt-deep, in her door. Scarlet glanced across the room to where her brother sat in his desk.

"Do you always have to be like that with him Scar? The man is just trying to bring you some news. He's afraid to even pass you in the hallway." Her brother groaned, rubbing his temples.

Scarlet shrugged. "Good." She smirked simply. "Keeping messenger boy in his place." She glanced down at her desk and grabbed what Bret had set there. It was an arrow. Scarlet's eyebrows furrowed in confusion. The end had a little sock balled up on it, and it smelled of gasoline. A flaming arrow? Why was that significant? She looked closer. Wrapped tightly around the arrow's silver shaft, was a little piece of paper. Raising one eyebrow, she looked up to see that her brother was now hovering over her shoulder, looking extremely interested.

With a sigh, she unrolled the piece of paper. On it, six simple words were scrawled. Catch me if you can, bitch. The initials, C.W at the bottom. "Fuck." She heard her brother whisper breathily behind her and she whirled in her chair, taking him by surprise as she stood quickly, advancing on him.

"Do you know something about this that I don't? Because if you value your life," she said, pushing the arrow tip against his throat. "You'll tell me now. Why the hell do you think it's okay to keep something from me?"

"Relax sis, yes I know something, I was going to tell you in the morning." He rubbed his neck. "You know that city everyone's been rumoring about?"

Scarlet eased off him and grumbled. "Don't remind me."

"Anyway, you know the officers who lost their children quite a while back? No? Maybe you were too young. Anyway, agents John and Taylor White had three missing daughters. We recovered one of them the other night, planning something against us."

Scarlet rolled her eyes. "Who gives a rats ass? Throw her in the Pits like we usually do. Honestly, you've gone soft."

Her brother just rolled his eyes at her. "God you're such an idiot sometimes." He hissed. "Anyway, I was going to throw her in the pits, when they brought in another prisoner. A protester who's brother had been planning something against us too. Seeing it as more than a coincidence, I decided to have them locked up for a few days in case something happened." He pulled the arrow out of her hand and waved it gently in front of her face. "Looks like I was right. C.W is the initials of the girl's twin sisters. One of them, John White told me, was an excellent shot with a bow. He taught her himself. Looks like we've got a pack of runaways on our hands. Headed for Utopia."

Scarlet leaned back to take in everything he was telling her for a moment before sighing. "Alright. You rally together a team to do a little hunting. I'll talk to the prisoners and get them prepped for a trip." She grinned wickedly and turned on her heel, headed towards the stairs, where she descended to the basement. In the basement, she moved down the rows of doors. There was a woman standing outside one of them, hand placed gently on it. "Taylor White?" Scarlet said, gesturing to the door. "I take it your daughter's in there?"

"Can I see her? Please? Just once?" The woman asked, brown eyes pleading.

"Alright, stop whining. You can sit in on the interrogation.

Scarlet had the guard blindfold and handcuff the girl, Kyerie White as well as the boy, Nathaniel Lochness, and lead them to the interrogation room. A blank white room with a silver table in the center, candles on either side, two chairs on one side of the table, and one on the other. The right wall was all cabinets. Once in the room, Scarlet told Taylor to stand in the corner, and whipped off the blind folds of the prisoners.

"I'm the Militia leader. Scarlet Rivers. Welcome to hell." She said with a smirk, glaring down at them with cold hazel eyes.




Scarlet's brother (NPC for now)


With a sigh, he watched Scarlet go, then went out into the hallway to Bret's desk. "Bret," he said. "Gather this list of names for me." He placed a list on the desk and went back into his office.

Once they'd all arrived, he smiled. Vesper Norton, their tacker, Remy Carter, the Militia's best female hunter, and John Doe, another hunter whom had a reputation for not stopping once placed on a trail. "We've got an assignment." He said, proceeding to tell them about the runaways. "We will be setting out as soon as Miss Rivers gets back. Go and pack anything you'll need on a hunting mission and be back here in no less than a half an hour." He turned to Bret. "Scrape up files of whomever's missing in New Haven. I want names for these runaways."




NOTE: Not going to post from Johnathon Thatcher until Fallen posts from Cleo, any runaways, I would suggest doing the same. If you have a Militia or prisoner character though, go ahead and post.

Ky was sitting in the corner of the cell, her head in her hands swearing to herself “why…why…why” she kept asking herself. Just the other day she was out during the middle of the night, she planned on getting some food for her two younger sisters but she was caught and not caught by anyone. Her mother, Taylor White, caught her and didn’t even think twice of bringing her into the Militia. She was sure she was going to the pit but no they put her in the basement in a cell where they only kept a few people.

She was put in the cell that night, her mother did try to talk to her. Asked about Chloe and Cleo, but Ky said nothing. She has been silent since she was placed in the cell. All that was going through her head was hope. She hoped that Chloe and Cleo would follow out the plan they have been working on the past few months. Ky trusted them and drilled them down to bone making sure they knew what to do if something happened to her. She knew today was the day they where planning to make the move.

Over the past months Ky has been watching people of New Haven, finding out who is a runaway. She has searched the city and made a list of people that she knew where runaways. She hid the list somewhere safe and told her sisters a few nights before she got caught where that list was just in case anything happened, she knew having a list was a bad idea but it was the only way to keep things in track.

Flash back

Ky was getting a back pack ready when she looked to her two sisters “Chloe and Cleo I need to show you both something so follow me".

As the three sisters went for the walk she began talking “I’ve been hiding part of the plan from you two but I feel I need to share it with you both now in case something happened to me” they walked into and old building and climbed to the third floor, going into one of the rooms then to a broken window where there was a large tree just outside of it. Ky reached out to the tree where there was a hole and in the hole was the list.

“I made a list of runaways. You know how I have gone out at night alone. Well that was when I went searching. I have found a group of runaways that I want to take with us. If anything is to happen to me I want you both to find everyone on this list and go forward with the plan. No matter what, you have to promise me you will go find the runaways. There is their names and area where they usually hide out,” she looked deep into her sisters eyes and heard them both promise her.

Ky put the list back into the tree and they went back to where they were staying that night. Two nights later Ky was caught.


Ky snapped out of her flashback when she heard her cell door unlocked by two guards. She was quickly blindfolded by the guards and handcuffed. She didn’t say one word as they walked to another room. She was put in a chair then the blindfold was taken off. It took her a few minutes for her eyes to adjust because of the whiteness of the room. Once her eyes adjusted she took a look at who else was in the room. She first say the boy next to her that she guessed was a prisoner also, she then saw her mother in the corner. She didn’t even take a second look at her mother. To Ky, her mother was no longer her mom, she was just another militia officer.

"I'm the Militia leader. Scarlet Rivers. Welcome to hell." she heard the words of the women and Ky’s head turned to look at Scarlet Rivers. She has heard of the women and already hated everything to do with the women that was looking at her with the cold hazel eyes. Ky didn’t say one word, she just glared back into the eyes of the militia leader with a look of hate and distaste.

Remy was in the training area with her crossbow. There was a few other militia officers there with her but her focus wasn’t on them. It was the target in front of her. She pulled her crossbow up and was ready to send the arrow to her target when she heard footsteps coming towards her.

“Remmington Carter, Mr. and Miss Rivers would like to see you at their office right now”. She looked to the guy, putting down her cross bow and walked over to the man. She grabbed him by his wrist and quickly pulled it behind the guy and put the guy in a headlock. Being tall was something that Remy liked about herself. She whispered into the guys ear “Never. Call. Me. Remmington. Ever. If you know what is good for you” she then quickly snapped the guys wrist and pushed him away.

She turned her back on the guy that now seemed to be in pain and grabbed her crossbow. She heard a few whistles on her way out but she didn’t think twice about them. She made her way to the office and saw Bret there. He motioned her into Mr. River’s room and she walked in. When the others arrived she looked at them once but that was all. Her eyes went right back to Mr. Rivers and listened quietly to what he had to say.

"We've got an assignment." She grinned as she heard about the assignment, she was up for some hunting and this gave her the best chance. “We will be setting out as soon as Miss Rivers gets back. Go and pack anything you'll need on a hunting mission and be back here in no less than a half an hour." Remy nodded and left the room heading to her own room.

She got dressed in black skinny jeans, boots, a long sleeve green cotton shirt and her vest. She pulled her hair back into a pony tail and also put on a pair of sunglasses. When she knew she was ready she grabbed her crossbow and headed back to the office. She stood there and waited for Scarlet to come back, her closes and only friend she has had her whole life. She spoke no words to anyone as she stood there.

Sounds of a body being dragged by another form on a piece of rope were heard the the streets nearest to the Militia HQ. Sounds of curses and pleas, of grunts, and of cries; of shadows seemingly coming alive. Weapons were drawn at the sight of the pair, but were quickly lowered as their gaze turned to the figure in black, with only a half mask covering its lower face. A normal person would never have made the distinguish of whether it was male, or even female, but those who knew it best, would say that it was neither, but a beast trapped within a shell of a man. The man's eyes stared up at the two guards, and motioned for their assistance of the captive. He then held up a sheet of crumpled paper for their viewing. The paper had two faces printed on it in a rough sketching; one had a red X over the face, while the other had been left untouched. He began to point to a name below the unmarked face, and pointed at the writhing body behind him. "Sherill LeGasse?" One of the two guards repeated the name, but fumbled over the surname. He made it sound as though her name was Le-Gas, which made the man shrug unknowingly. With one finger, he pointed at the picture with an X over it, and slid it across his neck, then pointed towards the western edge of the city.

"Ah," said the guard, "So you were sent to find these two, but had to kill one. Is that correct?" At his nodding, the other simply shrugged his shoulders, then pointed his thumb behind him. "Might as well get inside. The Boss wants you." The cries from the woman had quickly turned to screams, when he entered the building. Hoots of laughter were soon heard, as well as a graphic detail of what they were going to do to her, as punishment for trying to leave the city. It was of no concern to him, however, which made his life easier.

The foyer of the building was not as grand as it once were, and was reminded repeatedly that it was probably owned by a prominent well-to-doer once upon a time. His mind had played his eyes well, in the beginning of his stay here, though, and had to wonder what it had used to be before the Militia took over. Every which way he had turned, there was always a new surprise for him. Whether it be a new room that was recently discovered by a group of raw recruits, or something someone had redecorated. Shaking his head to clear out the thoughts, he became painstakingly aware that most conversations within the area had ceased, and all eyes were turned on him. Remembering where he was, he quickly removed his half mask, and drew back his hood. A slight gasp came from his left, whereas a young woman simply shouted, "It's just the boss's hound. Everyone, just get back to work, and no gawking. If I find out yer not working, I'll send ye to the Pits meself." A small smile stretched the ruined face, as mask and hood were quickly secured in place.

The Hound, then, began to make his way towards the young woman, who had turned towards him, took his hand, and shook it. "Be nice to know that ye aren't dead yet, Hound. Looks like Ted owes me another 'undred. Two, me thinks." She chuckled in what he would call an "evil laugh" before continuing, "Aye, ye be wanting to see the boss." Her thumb jerked towards the back, "The stairs be right where they were the last time ye were here. Ain't no one has died yet from that ol' mess. That is, no one I have heard of." Another chuckle followed her statement, which turned into a sharp bark at an unknown layabout near a guard. With a small pat on her shoulder, and a wave with the back of her hand, he quickly set off towards the stairs.

Many had named the staircase "Treacherous Point" from the fact that it was far more likely that a person would die, rather than reached a floor he, or she, needed to access. Many of them would have rather taken the stairs closer to the Pits, than try their luck here. He could see a fresh smear of blood in the center, and wondered who was stupid enough to try their luck on his favorite area. Although he did not care much for the building itself, he did, however, enjoy this sort of staircase. More to the fact that it was more exposed to the elements than any other part of the building, and that it gave him a great work out at the end of a hunt. The time it took to reach the first landing, was only a hop, skip, and a jump, as the saying goes. One of which that needed no concentration, only common sense. All that needed to be done was to run to the side and jump. If you were lucky, you could make the landing in one try, but if you were not, you'd earn yourself a small scratch up and down your arms and/or legs.

The first landing was a breeze, as far as he was concerned, but what really mattered, to his mind at least, was the next hurtle. He needed to climb to get to the next landing, which was at least one hundred metres straight up, but it didn't concern him. After months of working with this area, he was able to create his own path up, and. By removing his weapon from its holster, and detaching its chain, he was able to use it as a sort of grappling hook, but without the hook. Earlier, he had created several spikes that would allow his chain to catch; it made it an easier climb. He would spend the next half hour trying to hook his chain into the first spike, then an additional ten minutes for each remain spike, after he climbed the first. When he reached the landing, however, he noticed that it was starting to crumble around the edges, but when he pulled himself onto it, it began to shift, crack, and crumble.

Mentally cursing himself, he walked towards the back of the landing, and quickly judged the distance between the landing, and the opening of the floor in front of him. Nodding slowly to himself, he charged the edge, just as it was beginning to break away, and leaped for the floor. His foot met the stone and steel floor, but it propelled him forward, causing him to roll down the hall for a few metres, before he hit something that caused him to splay out at an odd angle. A loud crash had signaled the end of the landing, as it tumbled down to the ground below. "Well," came a voice above him, "Guess we should seal off that side now, seeing as how you broke it completely." Staring towards the direction of the voice, a young guard waved his hand, then gently helped him to his feet. "Pretty sure everyone will know it was you who did that by tomorrow, but no matter." The guard's shoulders shrugged slowly, then waved, as he turned around to inspect the damage.

Looking about himself, the Hound gingerly lifted his chain from the floor, and secured it with his other weapon, before turning down the hall. The office wasn't that far away, now that he was on his designated floor, which hadn't worried him in the least. What did worry him, however, was the fact that no guards asked for his identification papers. His guess was that his commotion had made them curious enough to leave him be. He would need to have that rectified as soon as possible. A lithe figure had caught his eye, and noted her entrance into the office door. Curiosity had sparked his mind, but upon peering inside he noticed that it was only Remington, another silent killer like himself. The only difference was that he could never speak, nor make any sound, but she can, especially when she injured herself. By making a solid knock on the door, he waved at her, then waved at Mr. Rivers, of whom he had given his crumpled paper to with a shrug as he pointed at the X on one of the sketches.

#, as written by Breeze
"The Rivers want to see you, Mr. Norton." It was a smaller man who was holding his wrist which looked like it had been recently hurt, Ves raised an eyebrow at him, "One of the hunters? They are rather immature and, well, stupid." He had spotted the man from the window, and had already asked Emily to gather his hunting gear, it gave her something to do, and allowed him to get more information from the man... whoever he was. Probably just a lackey, or maybe a henchman? He never could tell the difference. The man was moving foot to foot debating on what actions he should take.. Ves had blatantly insulted a member of the Militia and so the Militia itself, but it was the woman who had hurt him for no reason save that she did not like her name... so he wanted to join in on the mocking of the stupid girl.

"Yes.. it was a hunter. Ms. Remmington." He said bitterly purposely using her name now that she was gone. Ves raised an eyebrow not knowing or caring who that was. Generally, he did not bother to learn the names of the Hunters who went with him on the trail. They were all the same in the end, full of self-importance, stupid, immature, and gun-ho. Honestly, they would get themselves killed in a week if he wasn't there to hold their hands all the time. They were good enough on short trips, but on the long trips... they were about as useless as a legless hooker.

"I would guess she is coming along as well? Great." Ves said with all the enthusiasm he could muster, "Nothing like a hot-head, 'tough', over-sensitive immature child. Just great." He said running his fingers through his hair. He had hoped the Rivers would have gotten somebody who was at least half-way competent, hell, he would take one that had a lick of sense, but even that would probably be asking too much. If he had the stomach for murder, he would just do it all himself. He would be able to do the jobs far faster, but he was no murderer. If the militia goons wanted to bloody their hands because they were too stupid to do the job right, let them.

"I'll be there." Ves said, patting the man on the back and telling him he should go to the Docs just down the road to make sure his wrist was alright. Guy seemed like a nice enough fellow, probably joined up because he had no other choice and had just found out that he was in way over his head. He sympathized with the guy, Ves was only in this business to ensure the Militia kept their dirty hands away from his house. He did not ask for anything in return other then their word that they kept their hands away from his daughter. Of course, he did not trust their word, but as long as he keep providing his services, he was sure they would leave him alone.

"Dad?" The small voice never failed to bring a smile to his face, and he turned to see her struggling with his pack... in her defense, it was a large pack. You did not travel light if you wanted to survive. You 'could' find berries, you 'could' happen to find edible roots, but only fools leave things to could. You always bring additional supplies. In the pack he had dried meats and fruits, nuts, gun cleaning kit, rope, a blanket, spare clothing, spare knives, whet stone, and a few other miscellaneous gear. He wouldn't bring it yet as he would pick it up before they set out. Sometimes they had him leave before them to secure the trail before it got cold, sometimes he left with the group itself, and he wasn't about to lug it around until he had to. Next to the pack was his rifle... but he did not need it now, his Ka-bar knife was still in its sheathe on his back pocket.

"Take care of yourself, and don't answer the door unless its me." Ves said, reminding her for what must have been the thousandth time, "I'll be back in a few hours at the most." He leaned down and kissed the top of her head before sliding out the door and into the overgrown streets. It was just another day in the hell pit that was New Haven.




Ves managed to slip by the guards and receptionist without having to go through a search.. something must really be up. Usually they could not wait to use their authority much like a child who was put in charge of his fellows. The Militia was just that, a bunch of children playing with fire... only instead of them getting burned, it was the house and everyone else in it. He slid into Miss. and Mr. Rivers office to spot to other Hunters, but they were not important, he just wanted to get the mission details, get back home get his house prepared for his absence, but since Rivers was not here, he occupied himself with examining the other two. The man was ridiculously dressed, what were those, pajamas?

In the green and brown forest, all he would do is stick out. Even at night it was better to dress in dark greys then pure black, but if the man felt more manly chasing people in pajamas, well, have fun with that. The other must have been Remmington that man had spoke about. What was this some side-show freaks he was traveling with this time? Some over-sensitive woman, and a pajama freak? He reached up and rubbed his forehead, this was going to be a long one, he could feel it in his bones.

Frankie opened his eyes and stared at the cracked white cieling. There was a pretentous banging on his door that demanded his attention. Instead he just smiled and set his arms underneath his pillow and watched the bits of sheetrock fall before him. This place was as old as any other building, but his dad had done a fair enough job restoring everything. Well, everything except for the mold underneath the carpets, the creak in the bed, the assorted holes in the floor and the cracked cieling. He wasn't about to fix it up. He'd rather just leave the damned place behind. It had been home to his last known misery. Sleeping in the bed that his father had hung himself from wasn't the most calming feeling, but it was more relaxing than the streets. "Frankie, open the fuck up!" A voice called from outside. He smirked and rose from his spot atop the sheets. In a few paces he'd made his way to the door. Unlatching small chain lock, the door swung open unrestrained by the latch of the door knob which hadn't worked for atleast a decade. Theres another thing you missed out on dad.

"Good morning to you too pal," He said sarcasticly through a cheeky grin. "What's up?" The small man was cradling his wrist in his oposite hand and was looking around the apartment with approval.
"Nice place you got here." The man said nonchalantly.
"Sure, it was my dads." Frankie felt his expression drop momenterily. He did his best to not think about his father. "What can I do for you today?"
"Mr and Miss Rivers would like to see you over in HQ." Frankie nodded once then smiled and waved him to continue. The small man sighed, rolled his eyes, and shook his head "I can't say, just pack your things. You got a trip ahead of you."
"Right. What happened to your wrist buddy? You're nursing it like a newborn child." The man was just about to open his lips when Frankie interjected a big grin playing across his face. "Big 'ol Remmy messed you up a 'lil bit huh? Gave you a baby boo-boo?" The short man's face went devoid of emotion as he stared at Frankie unbelievingly. "Oh I know, I'll get you some ice to put on it from the freezer here," Frankie walked over to the freezer and was about to open the door when he turned back to the short man. "Oh wait, that's right, we don't have ice!" Frankie exclaimed before erupting into a fit of laughter.
"Right," The short man responded, refusing to take part in Frankie's antics, "I expect you can find your own way over there."

Well, lets get this day started right. Sure as shit gunna be a long one. Frankie thought to himself as he took two anti-depressant pills and popped them into his mouth. In a flurry of minutes Frankie packed a backpack with three different suits, a combination of drugs, hygiene kit, two clips of ammunition for his M1911 Colt .45. He dressed in a fourth suit and set his gun in an inner suit pocket. He passed out his house door, not even bothering to lock it behind him. Everything of importance was on him. And besides, he didn't have the key.

Frankie passed the rooms on his left and right and made way for the buildings exit. Some of the rooms had been completely caved in, others were occupied. The appartment building was one of the smallest ones in the city of New Haven. It had once been a measly one story motel frequented only by the shady or the needy. It turned out to be one of the easist buildings to maintain after The Blackout. It's single story allowed the building to weather less quickly as the taller buildings, and many of the other buildings surrounding it offered some protection to the elements. Frankie opened the heavy wooden door which spereated the main corridor from the outside just when he heard his name being called.

"Francis dear! I heard you're leaving I made something for you! Big boy like you shouldn't run around with nothing to eat!" It was Old Lady Gertrude. She had been rumored to live here since The Blackout. Frankie wasn't sure if he believed all the hubub, but her information seemed to check out with a lot of the things the militia had educated him with when he was younger. If it were the case Gertrude was over eighty years old, and such longetivity was unheard of since The Blackout.
"Oh Mrs. Gerty, you shouldn't have!" Frankie beamed at the old woman and graciously accepted her gift of rat tails and hardtack. "Maybe I'll even find some berrys to make a jam for the hardtack while I'm out in the wild."
"See to it you do Francis!" Frankie cringed at the sound of his first name. "The hardtack tastes like a rats ass and if you don't soak it in water for a little first, you'll probably lose your foreteeth!" Old Lady Gertrude giggled a little and then ushered Frankie out the front door and shut it behind him.

Frankie travled down the vegitation strewn streets and passed slowly from lower New Haven where the degenerates had once lived towards the commercial and governemental center of the city where the Milita HQ was stationed. The building had seen better days. But it stood, and there wasn't much more to ask for in a time like this. The areas unscathed by vegitation reflected the dark looming sky above, making the weather feel evermore imposing. Frankie walked through the front doors past the two guards with a hello. He had practically grown up in this building and most of the Milita knew him immediately on sight. Frankie ascended one of the intact metalic staircases he made his way towards the appropriate floor, to the appropriate room and allowed himself into the meeting with his fellow hunters and Mr. Rivers.

"Howdy Mr. Rivers!" He said nodding to the man in charge before turning to Remington, his expression positively glowing. "How you been Remmy baby?" Frankie winked at Remington before turning to Ves and The Hound "Good to know you ain't dead yet Hound! And Mr. Ves! Looking... Tactical, as always!" He grinned to himself "Who's ready to go hunting?" He asked his voice rising in pitch. "We're going to have one hell of a good time!"

The Weather was Soothing, Cool but not cold, Warm but not hot. Through the night sky was clouded, but not to bad, of course the group of runaway's lead by a young dark haired girl that were crouching behind her, weapons at the ready, were not able to see the velvety black cloud covered night sky due the the trees they were under. The leader of the small group bit his lip as a slight breeze whipped the leaves on the tree around, she felt her body tense, ready to pounce with her sword in hand, her fingers numbly tensing around the handle. The Night was perfect, perfect with their getaway, maybe to perfect.


Cleo Cami White was crouching low behind a tree, which was only one tree away from the group of runaways that were crouching behind her, all of their weapons at the ready, ready for anything to happen. Through Cleo's eye's were fixed on the guards, her mind was on something completely different, which would be her twin, who she was hopping wouldn't miss-step and fall to her death, god that would stop their plans all together, well not completely, if her sister died she'd tell the other runaway's to return to their homes, and go get her older sister herself...... Or die trying.


Cleo tensed as she felt knots in her stomach forming, she was very carefully watching the east entrance to the city, and she was sure Chloe was doing the same thing. Chlole's job was to distract the guards and then signal Cleo a group of runaways hiding in the shadows. Cleo knew the risks, and whished that it was her up there about to shoot off firing arrows instead of her sister, but that was where the twins were different. Cleo couldn't handle not being in the battle feild, she needed to be able to bleed as much as her enemy to feel like a real warrior, but her sister was better out of the field, more open eyed, and mostly she had better aim, which helped most of the time.

Cleo took a deep breath and tensed her legs up, she was in the springing postisten for sure. It was time, and her twin wasn't a second behind on Cleo's thoughts. Soon Flames lit up in the sky, showing, for only s split second, Chloe's face, Cleo let out a deep breath as her stomach seemed to unknot it's self like it always did before she got ready for a fight.

The flame was released, sending the flaming arrow, streaking through the air almost faster then the eye could see. Quickly, Cleo peaked out, she couldn't see the guards from where she was at, and she wouldn't tell the others to move until she got the signal, hopefully it had worked.

Something shot through the air before piercing the bark of the tree that Cleo was under. Cleo grinned and she grabbed the no longer flammed arrows and tucked waved towards the runaways, saying in a harsh tone "Move Out!" before she darted ahead of them and towards the gate, holding it open as each one of them made this way swiftly yet quietly out to their sweet, sweet freedom.

Of course things never work out it seems, because right as she saw her sister, she saw the a guard. Cleo ducked down and grimced. Things never seemed to work from them no matter how hard they tried did they? What do they do if Chloe couldn't get out? Shit shit shit.. What do I do, what should I d- . . . . oh. . . Cleo grimced but turned towards one of the runaways, a determined look set in her eyes.

"All of you, get up in those trees, Don't come down no matter what you see, hear or think you hear. If I'm not back in ten minuets, all of you stay together, and find a safe place. Carter, you're with me."Cleo's eyes had a strange glint in them as she nodded to everyone and said in what seemed to be a even sharper voice then before, "Move Out!" and without much hesitation, her and Carter darted towards the gate. Cleo refused to lose another sister, no matter the terms.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It was silent, which was normal for the dead of night, but everyone was tense, ready for anything to happen. Cool breezes would shake the leaves putting people more on edge then they already were, and the chatting guards near by didn't help in the slightest. Through it was cloudy, the moonlight was light enough for almost everyone here, through not all of them had the fighting or hunting or even sneaking experience as most the other runaways, they all still seemed to have sharp eyes, and even sharper ears.


Carter Erin Reid was crouched in front of the rest of the runaways, who were all lined up behind her, She had no idea what so ever, how she ended up behind Cleo and with all of the others behind her, but she didn't mind to much. It was a good night for a getaway, through Carter still says it would have been better when a storm came through, to give them more cover, but the twin leaders seemed in a hurry, and Carter couldn't blame them, if it were her parents and she had a chance to same them..she would be doing the same thing.

That's why Carter vowed to help the twins no matter what. She under stood what it was like to lose you're whole world, and she didn't want the same thing to happen to someone else. Thunk! Carter swiftly raised her bow, arrow at the ready. "Move Out!" Cleo's sharp harsh voice reached the runaways, and Carter swiftly dashed after Cleo, leaving the other behind in her slight moment of haste.


Soon they were all behind the gate, slightly out of breath but they were all out..well..almost all of them. Chloe, Cleo's twin and the other leader of the runaway, had yet to make her way through the gate, and through Cleo was keeping her cool, it was clear to a hunters eyes that she was tensed up with worry, through she seemed to come up with a idea, and as soon as she turned around to face them all, Carter grinned.


"All of you, get up in those trees, Don't come down no matter what you see, hear or think you hear. If I'm not back in ten minuets, all of you stay together, and find a safe place. Carter, you're with me." Cleo nodded her head towards the door, and through Carter had been ready to dash up on of the trees and find anice steady limb, she knew that the leader had other ideas. "Alrighty." Carter turned towards the oldest looking man in the group, and handed her bag to him. "Please, Please watch this while I'm gone..." Carter looked the man up and down, before frowning ever so slightly. "....And if I find anything missing, I'll hang you by you're toes." Carter flashed a grin at the Man before she dashed after Cleo, her bow in hand and her quiver on her back.

The two of them climbed up a tree the had one branch half way over the gate, Carter glanced at Cleo and said in a low voice. "What do you need me for?" Cleo flashed a smirk at Carter and nodded her head down towards the girls twin and the guard she was talking with. "See that Guard?" Cleo asked stareing intently at him. Carter shrugged and nodded, not bothering to point out the fact that she wasn't blind and could, instead see the large guard.

"Shoot him, right through the throat, on the first hit." Cleo's voice was...deadly in a way, but at the same time it made Carter grin. "No problem, as long as you're sister grabs the Arrow for me." Carter said pulling out one of her best arrows and put it in the bow, pulling back and taking aim with on eye closed. "She'll know better then to leave it behind." Cleo stated plainly as she watched Carter work her magic.

Carter took in a long, deep breath, and released. There was no sound as the arrow flew through the air, spinning round and round perfectly. She understood why she asked her to get the throat, it wouldn't kill the man right away, but he wouldn't be able to make any noise, due to the pinpoint. The Arrow longed it's self through the mans throat, and one look from Cleo told Carter what she had to do.

Carter sighed, rolled her eyes, and put her bow on her back before she jumped from the branch and landed beside the guards body with a thunk. "Son of a bitch..." she mumbled under her breath as she shook her right leg before turning towards Chloe. " Common." she mumbled grabbing the girls hand and gently pushing her towards the gate, Carter stayed behind and grabbed the body, throwing it over her shoulder before she headed out of the gate, shutting it behind her and tossing the body in the bushes before she put her bloody arrow back in her quiver.

This would be a interesting adventure.

Damien Bishop

Daimen Bishop leaned against the base of the tree. The moonlight lighting his tan brown face. He was dressed warmly. A dark skull cap covering his short faded hair, a hoodie underneath a dark jean jacket. Thick jeans and Militia issused combat boots. He sighed, his arms resting over his trusty aluminum baseball bat. It sat over his shoulders and he watched the sky. Thwip! A firey stream shot across the sky. With an arched eyebrow, Damien pushed off the tree. As Cleo and Carter went on ahead of him. He heard footfalls approach him and he froze. "What was that?" A guard called. Damien took no time to swing his back and it cracked the guards skull with a sicknening Konk! The guard crumpled to the ground and Damien simply walked away. He felt no regret for that. The Militia wasn't what is use to be. They did horrible things, anyone who could stand that sort of mistreatment of others. Deserved their fate. He caught up to Cleo and Carter as he exited New Haven. "Yo." He whispered. He looked around before quickly joining them. He noticed Carter's bloody arrow and poked on his bottom lip impressed. A body fell from the sky and Damien looked up. Giving a thumbs up.



Kanon Niigaki

Kanon Niigaki clad in all black
waited at the top of the tree. As everyone scattered to thier positions she scaled to the top of the Captial Building using a rope and her own strength. She swung a homemade grappling hook made of wire hangers and rope that was attached to her homemade hostler and it attached with a swift clink to her target. Which was a building clear on the other side of the Gate.It was adjacent to the building she was on. she reached the top. She gave it a tug to make sure it would'nt give. It was risky but thankfully, Kanon was extremely light. She stepped onto the rope. It practically disappeared in the dark but she was confident. Gracefully, She dropped down hanging by her hands on to the rope and spun so that her back was facing the street below. She wrapped her feet around the rope. Her hands protected by gloves and feet protected by thick socks with a rubber soles. Quickly, she pulled herself down the rope. One hand over the other while her feet kept her from losing her grip. Within moments she was over the gate and offically out of New Haven however, the building was guarded as they predicted. Two guards patrolled North and South. She'd entered from the East. Which she thought was a bit ironic. She snuck onto the rooftop. Making sure the gravel on top didn't give her away and creeped up on the North guard. She reached up and snapped his neck. She shoved his body over the egde. That was the signal to the others on the north that she'd made it safely. She turned to the South guard but gravel shifted causing the guard to turn around. "Shit!" He gasped and before he pulled his gun. Kanon ran up and slashed him in the throat and in the same moment she spun on her toes and kicked him off the roof. She looked over the egde and gave a thumbs up.

Nathaniel Lochness


"I'm the Militia leader. Scarlet Rivers. Welcome to hell!

Two sentences can hurt your body so badly.These words were the worst nightmare for Nathaniel.And in that moment, when they were whispered in his ears, he felt a cold shiver trough his entire body.He knew the woman.Of course he knew her, everyone know who is the leader.Everyone is talking...But hearing her was tottaly different.She had a cold, but somehow sweet voice.She wasn't speaking loud but she wasn't quiet neither..Scarlet..If it wasn't near the word Militia, it would be a beautiful innocent name.But how can it be innocent, when she was the one who distroyed his family, and many others.If at the first sentence he remained quiet like a stone, at the second one, a little smile appeared on his face.The smile remained where it was when they incovered his eyes.Now he could actually see her, she was exactly how Nate thought.A heartless but beautiful queen bee.He closed his eyes and told her ironicaly, remaining still:

"Well, thank you for your hospitality, miss Rivers. You are very sweet to welcome us in this amazing prison of yours.I appreciate this, but I am not intending staying in here too much.And I am sure she thinks the same.."

Nate opened his eyes and pointed with his fingers the girl near him.He didn't need to look first in the room to realise that he was not alone.When he was caught and tied he heared a girl screaming.Then, when the guards took him to this room, he heared her breathing next to him.But now, as he throw his eyes in the room , he saw her.She seemed a little bit older then him, but she was very beautiful.Was she scared?Maybe, maybe not. She seemed more angry then scared.But, of course if she got caught, she was not affraid.If you try escaping or protesting, you have to be brave..Nate smiled to her, then turned again to face the leader.He looked into her eyes then bit his lips.He was angry too, more then that, he was annoyed and bored of too much evil grins.Who she thought she was ? Of course, now she was a leader but before that?? She was as normal as he was.Nate didn't protest because he wanted to leave. NO.He wanted to give Militia a big lesson of life.What is their goal, if everyone is suffering?? He didn't understand that...He left the cold chair and walked where the four guards were staying silently, looking at them. They were taller then him, even if he was tall enough to intimidate someone, and they were armed with guns and knives.. Nate looked at them a few seconds, then asked Scarlet Rivers:

"So, these are your puppets? Oh, sorry, a few of your puppets? What did you give them to be on your side? Money?Drugs?Something else??I am really curious, because they are very loyal.. Or is just a facade? "

The last word was whispered just for himself. He didn't need a fight or something else right now, so he had to behave nice.He couldn't escape from here on his own and obviously not so fast.He needed to be patient..He quickly got back to his chair and closed his eyes again..Trying to remember what happened yesterday..He was alone, trying to find his big brother. Nate thought he was in danger because he wanted to escape, so he went after him .He knew he couldn't help his brother, but he still tried....Nate opened his eyes and sighed when he saw Rivers standing at the table in front of him..He didn't want to remember what happened, but it was necessary, so he closed his eyes once again... He was all alone, in the darkness, scared and injured. After he had an awful fight with some guards, he was standing in a bush in the nearest forest.He didn't find his brother and he got a big scar on his left arm.He found out that he was too weak to fight with every hunter and guard.But he wanted to know his brother safe.As he stayed quietly in the bush, a guard came and took him up.He knew he hadn't the strength to fight so he waited to be carried in a cell.That night was just a headache...This time, Nathaniel refused to remember anything else so he opened his eyes.He put his hands on his head then shouted..

"What are you going to do with us? Put us in the prison? Come on, you know that if you do this, you will not stop what is coming. AND you know what is coming..You will be defeat soon, along with your puppets.. And you can't stop it..."

Marcus Reed


Marcus had his eyes closed till he felt the slight flash that could only mean that the signal was being given, kinda dramatic and theatrical for his taste but he was with a…colorful bunch to say the least. When the signal was given he moved quickly, his legs pumping as he made his way across and through the gate without any problems. It was best to do this sort of thing quickly and with a clear head, not hesitating for even a moment so as to not get caught. He heard the slight scuffle behind him and couldn’t help but give a little wince, these kids these days didn’t seem to understand the idea of doing things in a calm manner. His feet touched the gravel and pressed it down, making noise that would be lost in the sound of the guards own footsteps and he made sure to take quick and even strides so that he didn’t exert himself too much and stuck to the shadows so that he wasn’t as likely to be seen. He lowered his head as he thought of the plan and the stupidity of it all. He didn’t even understand how he’d been convinced to help the sisters out but they had managed to convince him to join along, then they had gone against his advice about getting out of the city. All cities had holes in them and even the milita didn’t have men at all the little holes that someone could slip by, that plan would mean splitting up though and they all cared too much about anyone else getting caught; they were too young to understand what it was they were getting into after all.

Once they were across they all hunkered down and waited in the trees, another stupid idea. They should have been away by now and have had the girl catch up to them later on and down the road. The look of concern on Cleo’s face almost made him leave as she grabbed the little archer and made off back towards the gate. Her words rolled off him as he shook his head, then the archer did the oddest thing and handed him her bag. She didn’t even give him enough time to protest it.

Marcus couldn’t help but shake his head even more as he swung the girls back onto his back, his body having to adjust to the extra wait that it added to the bag he already had on. He wanted to say more than a few choice words about the idea of being hung upside down but knew better than to spoil everything with that. He wasn’t THAT old, and they had been the ones asking him to come along so the least they could do is not insult him and make him a bag boy. He turned towards the girl next to him and noticed two things right away. The first was that she was carrying a baseball bat; the second was the fact that she was probably young enough to be his daughter. He sighed and said as he looked at her. “Whatever you do, don’t go hitting anyone with that kiddo. Last thing we need is more killing tonight…..Why don’t’ you come with me real quick”

He had a small smile on his face and a little idea of his own in his head; they had to learn not everything needed to be solved with violence after all. He ignored their order and moved towards the two, standing at the base of the tree as he called up quietly to them. “You both know that there was no reason to kill him right? He might have let her go for all you know, now it’s pretty obvious which way were going. What I’m trying to tell you is that because of that little hair brain stunt you pulled you just endangered all our lives even more, including this little girl right here. Now then, what are we gonna do cause you just guaranteed they’ll be sending a squad or so after us……also little miss bow and arrow up there, if you can’t carry your gear then don’t bring it.”

Chloe watched as the guard before her was shot dead, an arrow to the throat. With a soft groan, she rolled her eyes and bent to grab her forged Traveling license just as a girl dropped out of a tree above her. "Son of a bitch..." She whispered before turning to her. "Common." The girl said, pushing her through the gate. Chloe bit her tonuge and slipped her papers away before coming to a stop under the tree Cleo was in.

She was about to say something when one of the other runaways came over. A little girl in tow. He was the first one they'd picked up. A smuggler. “You both know that there was no reason to kill him right? He might have let her go for all you know, now it’s pretty obvious which way were going. What I’m trying to tell you is that because of that little hair brain stunt you pulled you just endangered all our lives even more, including this little girl right here. Now then, what are we gonna do cause you just guaranteed they’ll be sending a squad or so after us……also little miss bow and arrow up there, if you can’t carry your gear then don’t bring it.” He said and Chloe simply reached up and ripped her arrows out of her sisters hand, slipping them back into her quiver.

"He's right." She hissed, gesturing to the girl who'd pushed her, and the dead guard in the bushes. "Do you always have to be so reckless Cleo? He might have let me through. Maybe, wait next time. The whole point of a plan is to follow it." She rolled her eyes. "How are we supposed to expect all these people to listen to us if we don't even listen to each other?" The two bickered a lot, but they were sisters. It was one of the things that made them so close. They challenged each other constantly. With a sigh, Chloe picked up the archers bags and shoved them into her hands. "Whatever. Now that you idiots have slowed us down when I could have just caught up, we've got to run like hell. Carry your own shit honey. Let's go."

Gently, she pushed past the smuggler, and made her way back to the trees that the others were all hiding in, waiting for her. "Get down." She said simply. "We're moving." And with that, she took off into the woods, nimble feet leaping over obstacles that only a hunter could see in the dark. They would run until they came to a place Chloe knew well and make camp. She shifted the weight of the bag on her shoulder and glanced behind her as she moved. She couldn't see the others, but she knew they were there, streaking their way through the night behind her.

Scarlet let a wicked grin creep onto her face as the girl just stared at her in hard defiance. She glanced behind her at Taylor. "Nervous because Mommy's in the room?." She smirked and grabbed the girls chin, pulling her close and locking eyes with her. "She misses you and your sisters, you know that?" When she got no response, she leaned back and smiled. "I guess you do. Though you don't care."

"Well, thank you for your hospitality, miss Rivers. You are very sweet to welcome us in this amazing prison of yours.I appreciate this, but I am not intending staying in here too much.And I am sure she thinks the same.." She could practically taste the sarcasm in the boys voice and she turned her eyes on him, the girl now forgotten.

"Not a problem honey." She said with a smirk, her eyes following him as she moved to her guards.

"So, these are your puppets? Oh, sorry, a few of your puppets? What did you give them to be on your side? Money? Drugs? Something else? I am really curious, because they are very loyal.. Or is just a facade?"

Scarlet leaned back and inspected her nails. "Actually, it's much simpler than all that. I gave them knowledge and a high salary, and they give me loyal service." She lifted her eyes to the boy with a smile, knowing that wasn't the answer he was expecting. "What? You've never heard the saying: Knowledge is power?"

She watched him sit down again. "What are you going to do with us?" He said after a moment of silence. "Put us in the prison? Come on, you know that if you do this, you will not stop what is coming. AND you know what is coming..You will be defeat soon, along with your puppets.. And you can't stop it..."

Angered, she leaned forward and gave him a slap so hard, she knew it would bruise. She was famous for these slaps, and she knew the guards behind her were all putting their hands to their cheeks, as they'd all been there before. She grinned, satisfied, and leaned back. "No. Actually, I'm not putting you back in the prison. Or the Pitts. I'm taking you with me." She looked at the girl. "You two are going to help us hunt down your siblings. I don't care if I have to break every bone in your bodies to get you to talk." She gestured to the guards. "Cuff the boy again." She tossed a pair of cuffs to Taylor. "Get the girl."

Scarlet stepped back and watched as Taylor handcuffed her own daughter and the guards handcuffed the boy, hands behind their backs. "Alright." She said. "To my office." And with that, she turned, Taylor, her daughter, the boy, and the guards behind her.

Once upstairs, she pushed the double doors to her office open to find that her brother had already gathered their hunters together, along with the tracker. She grinned. "Alright, well." She began, moving to stand next to her brother. "We've got a group of Runaways on our hands, so we're going on a little trip. I'll only be another minute." She said as she disappeared behind a door in the back of the room, heading into her own room.

Quickly, Scarlet peeled off her high heels and velvet dress, slipping into a black tanktop, leather jacket, dark grey pants, and combat boots. She then grabbed the bag next to her bed that always kept at the ready before heading back out into her office. "I hope everyone's ready." She said looking at them. Remy and Frankie seemed to be the only ones who'd grabbed supplies. "We wont be waiting."

John waited in the shadows with the runaways. They were to be waiting for some sort of signal. What exactly it was, he didn't know, only the leaders did, but he didn't mind. He was more than willing to lie planning in their capable hands. He'd never been the smartest guy in the world and was always happy to hand over decision making to someone more qualified.

Next to him, was his girlfriend, Evangeline. He was running away with her. The city, with all the rapes and murders, was no place for her anymore, and he just wanted her to be safe. Silently, he slipped his hand into hers and placed a small kiss on her cheek, just as a ball of flame streaked through the night towards them. He ducked, avoiding the flame as it struck the tree behind him. Then a second. That must be the signal, for the other leader Cleo, shouted for them to move.

So he did, tugging Evangeline along with him. Once in the safe cover of the forest, he turned back to Cleo, taking in her instructions. "Come one Angel." He whispered, helping Evangeline climb a nearby tree, and crawling across a low-hanging branch to sit next to her, waiting for Cleo and Chloe's return.

There was a pause, then sounds of bickering, then an order from Chloe to get down and get moving. With a sigh, he jumped down, then caught Angel gently, taking her hand and leading her off after Chloe.

#, as written by Breeze
Ves had been occupying his time with examining the floorboards in his boredom he noted the texture and patterns. Well, he supposed it was a nice floor all things considered. Far better then his which consisted of a badly torn carpet and cold concrete, but at least his had a nice 'down trodden homie' feel about it. He supposed it fit the Rivers just fine, but Ves was not sure what he would do if he did not have his oppressed and beaten look to his house. It was all the fashion craze among the other people of New Haven. The sound of the door opening caught his attention, and he hoped it would be Miss. Rivers, so they could get the show on the road, but instead it was just another man. He had no idea who he was, but since it was not Miss. Rivers, he truly did not care either... but the man was not one to be ignored wasting no time in running his mouth. If he hunted half as fast as he blabbered, it would be a short trip.

Ves raised his eyebrow when the man spoke his name, did he know this man? No... at least, not to his memory, but if he had met him it would not surprise Ves that he had written the man off and forgotten him. Oh well, he was sure he had forgotten for a good reason. Tactical? Jeans, a knife, and a shirt was tactical? Ves was sure he did not want to know what this man considered to be deadly. He didn't respond to the comment simply because he would rather just not go at all. If he had to pick between chasing fugitives through the woods with people who were mentally unstable, or sitting at home eating a tiny dinner with his daughter and watching the stars, well, it wasn't that hard of a choice when it all came down to it.

Finally the door opened again this time it was Miss. Rivers and... some other people. He waited patiently for her to explain, but she didn't... seemed civility escaped her, but he did not fail to catch the 'we're'. Ves sighed and reached up to rub his forehead. He was right, this was going to be a long... long mission. Not only had Miss. Rivers seemed to deem it worthy of her time and attention, but she wanted to take two other potential runaways with her? This was probably some cruel intention she had, those two were probably friends or family of the runaways, and she just wanted to watch them squirm, of course, in Ves's opinion it was a stupid... stupid... outrageously stupid idea. Manpower would have to be spared to watch them, they would not be able to move as fast with two restrained people, and he knew they would attempt to slow them down. Why did her need for cruelty outweigh her common sense?

It also would have been nice with a little briefing. Did she know how many they were chasing? Their ages? Their social status? When they left? Which direction they were seen leaving in? All these little details would help him find the trail. Unless she expected him to be able to magical point in a direction and just start walking. He covered his eyes with his hand trying very hard to stop himself from rolling his eyes. If she didn't want to wait for him to grab the gear that would probably at some point keep her alive then so be it. If she really wanted to attempt to go cross-country without him, knock yourself out. As far as he was concerned, if she didn't want him on this destined to be clusterfuck then praise whatever being was watching over him.

"Tracking in the dark is not possible." Ves said finally. It was extremely difficult to see the slight bends and shapes in the earth in the dark not to mention there was a very, very, very good chance they would just get lost and have to camp out in the woods for no reason. "It would be better to start fresh in the morning." Ves continued. As the Tracker it was his job to tell Miss. Rivers this even if she didn't want to hear it. If she wanted to threaten him, his family, and jump up and down and throw a tantrum was up to her, but it was a mistake to attempt to track anyone at night, "We would only get in each others way, get lost, or worse yet, destroy their tracks ourselves. If they ran away today, they won't have gone far, and I have tracked down people who have been gone for more then a week. Just a suggestion of course, but instead we should use tonight to attempt to gain any and all information we can about who is running away." He finished, and awaited the highly probable threats and undermining, but he would be a piss poor tracker if he didn't at least inform her.

Two additional bodies had filled the space within the office shortly after he made his appearance within. One, Vesper Norton, was not, in his mind, a favorable character. Of course, he had excellent skills in tracking, but he never enjoyed his presence. This had bothered him time and time again, during his stay here. Not understanding it made it close to unbearable to the point of walking out of the room, sometimes the building, just to think alone. As his gaze brushed past the features of the man, he couldn't help, but give a small start, 'He is passing judgement over me.' With eyes narrowing to slits, the hood began to drift over them, hiding them from the world. A thought passed through his mind, but was quickly abolished. One who has a ruined tongue, and very poor vocal chords, could not speak in a legible fashion. So he stayed silent, while slowly reaching for his weapon and whetstone.

The soft whisk-whisk filled his mind, banishing all thought, as the weapon and whetstone struck and slid across their surfaces in a slow rhythm. His mind was wholly consumed with the whetstone, before finally stopping to examine the weapon closely. The eyes took on a dreamy look, before resuming with the soft whisk-whisk of the two for a few more heartbeats. Once satisfied, he placed the two in their respective pouches, then turned to see as Frankie appeared in the doorway. He couldn't help, but remove his half mask and mouthed the word "Woof" at the sound of his own nickname, before securing it in place once more. 'I will die eventually,' he thought to himself, 'but not this day, nor the next.'

Before another thought could be formed, Miss Rivers barged in. He wanted to address his last assignment quickly, but she was gone as soon as she entered. Puzzled, he looked about himself, wondering where she had gone. As quickly as she had vanished, she appeared in an odd get-up of outdoor gear, asking if everyone was ready. Confusion had entered his mind, and evidently showed within his own dark eyes. He had looked about himself, wondering if anyone else was as confused as he was. Apparently, Vesper was also confused, and began to voice his own opinion about it. "Tracking in the dark is not possible." The Hound's own head bobbed in acknowledgement to this statement. It was true to anyone with half a brain, and unless you had a fleet of flying machines at your beck and called, you were going to have to wait till first light to start the hunt.

"We would only get in each others way, get lost, or worse yet, destroy their tracks ourselves. If they ran away today, they won't have gone far, and I have tracked down people who have been gone for more then a week. Just a suggestion of course, but instead we should use tonight to attempt to gain any and all information we can about who is running away." Again, he bobbed his head in acknowledgement. There were wisdom in his words, and even though he didn't feel comfortable in his presence, he could not refute the man's words. Miss Rivers had appeared to be hyped up and ready to get on with the hunt, but if she tried to go out into the night, she would go without a Tracker and a Hunter.

Frankie beamed around at his counterparts. These people were his family, and it had been a while since his last hunt. He attempted to gauge his standing with the men and woman. Mr. Vesper seemed unsure of him, which was fine. Frankie had never met Mr. Vesper officially since he had never officially been a part of the Militia family. Frankie had heard of him and his skills in tracking people who managed to flee to the outside New Haven, but it was unlikely that Mr. Vesper had heard of him. This would be Frankie's first assignment with the man and he was thrilled to have the opportunity to see him in action. Silently he wondered if his father had ever done any work with Mr. Vesper, maybe when he was starting out. Frankie turned his gaze towards Remingto. Hen wasn't sure how she felt about him, she seemed a little bit more reserved. Even still, the two had been on maybe a trip or two before. She had started Hunting very young, and she was good at what she did. Even still the girl was only sixteen years old and Frankie expected that she would one day be the best Hunter in the militia if she kept at it. The other man, the hooded man Frankie knew as The Hound. He know that The Hound was a part of the militia family, and he was one of the best male hunters in the group. Frankie respected that about him, but The Hound seemed drowned in his own thoughts. He wasn't even sure that The Hound had noticed him when he walked into the room.

Miss Rivers entered the room looking dashing as always. It was one of the few things that Frankie adored about Scarlet. Her attire was breath taking. She took good care of herself and he found himself desperately attracted to her, dispite the tight ship she ran and the sinister way she had about doing things. He watched her move by all the hunters and take her place beside her brother. "Alright, well." She began, "We've got a group of Runaways on our hands, so we're going on a little trip. I'll only be another minute." She turned towards her office and Frankie felt his eyes drop immediately to her butt, set higher than usual and rounded more vivatiously by the heels she was wearing. Catching himself, Frankie quickly turned away and looked towards the other Hunters nervously to see if they had saw. His smile returned to his face as he attempted to play it off silently, and innocently. Once she returned she had changed her clothing to something more suitable for Hunting.

Miss Rivers asked if everyone was ready and it wasn't long before Mr. Vesper spoke up. He said that it wasn't a smart idea to leave tonight and that it would be better to wait until morning. Frankie had no doubt that Mr. Vesper knew what he was talking about, but if his intel was right, the break out happened the previous evening and waiting until morning would leave them two days behind. He was about to voice his opionion but didn't want to speak out of turn. This was Miss River's chouce anyhow. He'd let it stay that way.

As Ky was giving dagger eyes to Scarlet she heard the women begin talking "Nervous because Mommy's in the room?." she felt her chin grabbed by Scarlet’s hand pulling her closer. She looked it the militia’s eyes “shes not my mother” she said through her gritted teeth."She misses you and your sisters, you know that?"[b] She felt Scarlet let go of her and she rubbed her chin just a little [b]“I guess you do. Though you don't care." she was about to respond to that when she looked to the boy next to her, he gave her a smile then started talking to Scarlet.

She heard the guy use sarcasm against Scarlet and go at it. Ky sat there quietly but when she heard the boy say "What are you going to do with us? Put us in the prison? Come on, you know that if you do this, you will not stop what is coming. AND you know what is coming..You will be defeat soon, along with your puppets.. And you can't stop it..." Ky couldn’t help but smile, she liked this guy already just because of what he said to Scarlet, this made her smirk towards Scarlet but then watched as she gave the guy a good smack across the face. She heard it and winced, hearing what Scarlet said next made her not so happy.

“No. Actually, I'm not putting you back in the prison. Or the Pitts. I'm taking you with me." She didn’t like the sound of this and knew it probably wasn’t going to end well "You two are going to help us hunt down your siblings. I don't care if I have to break every bone in your bodies to get you to talk." “Bullshit that will be the last thing I will be doing you crazy bitch” she yelled as she jumped from her seat and put her hands on the table “I will die before you get anything out of me” her eyes looking right back into Scarlet’s, Ky was serious and anyone looking in her eyes could tell.

Ky then felt her wrists being cuffed again and looked behind her to see it was her mother “One of these days Taylor you will die from my hands just like you did to my Grandfather” was the last thing she said before she was pushed out of the room. They followed Scarlet up to another room, where there was other Militia hunters and the brother of Scarlet. She took each of them in guessing these where the hunters that would be hunting the group. “Scarlet is crazy if she thinks she will get anything out of me.” she thought to herself as she stood there glaring.

Remy was standing there her hands behind her back, she turned her head as each of the other hunters come along. First was the hound, she has hunted with him a few times and they worked good with each other, at least she thought so. They worked in silence never saying one word but they always got the job done. She gave a slight nod to the hound then looked at the door as someone else came in. It was another man, she never hunted with him nor has she had any running in with him. She nodded quietly to the older man then another one came walking in. A bit more cheery then the other ones "How you been Remmy baby?" she heard Frankie say then saw the wink. She shook her head then looked to him “Doing well Frankie” she said in her quiet, soft, dark voice. Not many people hear her speak, she liked to keep to herself most of the time but Frankie amused her an not many people could do that.

As she went back to be silent she heard Scarlet come in with a group behind her and she nodded to the women. Scarlet pretty much is her only ‘friend’ she still owed Scarlet from the year the other girl took her to be in the Militia when she was only seven years old. Scarlet was only five years older then her but Remy always looked up to the women and would always be there for Scarlet no matter what the situation was. "Alright, well. We've got a group of Runaways on our hands, so we're going on a little trip. I'll only be another minute." she watched as Scarlet walked off to the other room. She wanted to ask them why they gave that man her full name, Scarlet and Mr.Rivers where the only one that was suppose to know her full name, she would ask them later when there wasn’t so many people around. She saw as Scarlet came back out dressed better for the hunt they where going on. “I hope everyone’s ready, we won’t be waiting.”

Remy nodded she was ready, always ready to hunt, she was about to say something when one of the men spoke up "Tracking in the dark is not possible. It would be better to start fresh in the morning." Remy couldn’t help but agree, hunting would be hard in the dark but whatever Scarlet decided she would go forth with. She didn’t say anything because she felt her opinion wasn’t needed, so she stood their quietly, her hands behind her back as she waited for the next order.

Addy was standing there quietly watching the others from the side, she saw the two arrows being shot and went into the tree near them. Addy still wasn’t sure if they where all ready for this big to do but she just went with the flow. She heard one of the twins, Cleo, say “Move out!” She stayed low and ran right through the gate quietly. As they got through the gates she heard Cleo "All of you, get up in those trees, Don't come down no matter what you see, hear or think you hear. If I'm not back in ten minuets, all of you stay together, and find a safe place. Carter, you're with me." She wasn’t one to take orders from someone else but she remember when their older sister, Kyerie, came to her and told them about their plan and how she should go with them. She was unsure about it at first but she had nothing else here for her in New Haven so she agreed to go, but since Kyerie wasn’t here any longer it was hard to go forward with the plan. She really didn’t know the twins and it made her a bit anxious going with a bunch of people she hardly knew.

As she was about to climb a tree she heard the man next to her start talking, he looked much older then her which actually made her feel a bit better they had someone older in the group. “Whatever you do, don’t go hitting anyone with that kiddo. Last thing we need is more killing tonight…..Why don’t’ you come with me real quick.” Addy gave a small smile and chuckled, she didn’t plan on using the bat on anyone. She has only killed once and that was because the guard almost forced her to go to the Militia where she be put in the pit which she would never go, she would rather die then be in the Militia’s hands.

Addy nodded to the man and put her bat in the pack she had on her back. She kept her essentials in there, nothing to heavy to slow her down. She followed the man silently as they went over to Cleo and one girl she believed her name was Carter. She stood silently as she heard the name next to her start grilling out the two girls, which in her mind she thought they deserved it. One thing she didn’t like of what he said was he called her little girl her eyes went up to him and in the quietest but sorta dark voice she whisper “I am not little” was all she said as she went back to being quiet. She may be fifteen but she had been on her own for awhile now and she hated when she was put down because of her age. “age is just a number” she thought to herself.

Then Chloe came up and started bickering with her sister. “Will you two just shut up and stop bickering, it is the last thing we need. The two leaders bickering as the militia could be coming any minute now” this was all thought in her mind, she would never speak the words but the thoughts in her mind did. She kept quiet but she was grinding her teeth. As Chloe moved past the guy, practically shoving her she huffed. She couldn’t wait till they got out and to utopia then she can go on her own not having to deal with anyone. She followed right behind Chloe quietly, she was quiet as a mouse, her long legs helped her move easier through the night. She wasn’t sure where they were going but hopefully it was a little farther away from New Haven so it wouldn’t be easy for the Militia to find them.

Nathaniel Lochness

"So, that is all? You punched me and you keep us near you?Sweetheart, that is your brilliant plan?But, I have to say that playing the bad boy would be funny enough..Hunting my own brother and my friends?Mmm..let me think.No, thank you.Even the bad boy game, sounded well, I have to be loyal to the people I care...Of courses, I can't escape..Too bad right?One more thing, bitch! Try to make me speak and you will suffer.."

Nathaniel almost hissed the words then put his left hand on his cheek.That woman knew how to slapp him.Indeed, she was very powerful and cold.He coughed once and put his hand to his mouth to stop the bleeding.Without saying anything else, before the guards could handcuff him, he jumped to the wooden table and took a napkin.He coughed for the second time and looked at the guards who seemed annoyed and ready to put him down if he wanted to get away..Then, Nate laughed silently and told them trough the napkin, which now was red from the blood:

"Hey, don't worry, you little puppets! I am not gonna run, I am not that stupid. But, you see, your boss is trying to annoy me..And she thinks that if she show of with her skills, she will impress me or make me quiet.No, dear, you are wrong..But now, let's go, wherever you want...Bitch!"

He let the guards handcuff him and looked at Scarlet Rivers, then, at the other woman in the room.As he could hear, he understood that the woman was the other prisoner's mother..He felt bad for the girl..How can your own mother turn bad and hunt your sisters..Look what can power do.But after he saw her smirking to Scarlet, then shouting at her mother with hate in her voice, he realized that she hated her mother.Nate somehow liked the girl.Like him, she was not afraid of bad things and she remained cool.As they were pushed outside the room, he got near her and asked silently:

"Uh, I know is not a good moment, but what's your name, hunny? You seem to keep yourself strong.How can you do it??Sometimes I just want to scream of madness...Oh,don't tell me, you have friends and siblings that are runaways, right?That is annoying!To know you are here and you can't do anything for them.To wait knowing that they are near big dangers, to help the enemy hunt them?..Oh, I will stop, because I talk too much, it seems and I know very well you are not in the mood for talking.."

After saying that in rush, Nathaniel looked around him and saw other hunters and Militia stuff.He saw Scarlet away for a few minutes, then, when she came back, she was dressed in hunting clothes.He grinned then after he heard the others talking about the perfect day when they would hunt the runaways, he spoke to all of them:

"Why waiting? Look, if you are going to take us with you, I can help you.Of course, I will not say anything about where they are, but I can tell you that tomorrow isn't a good day of hunting..That is all I can say."

Re: The Blackout

No posts? PM me if and when this continues again.

Re: The Blackout

I know everyone's waiting on me to post, im sorry. -.- I kind of am waiting on Fallen to post, but she hasn't been on in a while. If she doesn't post by Sunday, I'll just go ahead and post.

Re: The Blackout

I am :) *waves* But it feels like everyone is waiting for Desire to post something as Scarlet Rivers. Atleast, thats how it feels from the Militia perspective.

Re: The Blackout

Anyone alive enough to post something?

On another note, the Grammar Nazi in me is screaming in rage.

desire99600 wrote:@MaliceInWonderland,

I'm not sure if this is right but I think that you think the Runaways are sneaking into New Haven. Lol, that's okay if you got a little mixed up. They're actually sneaking out of New haven. And all the Runaways are supposed to be under the trees with Fallen's character.


Ahh alright. Chyea I fixed the part about them being under the tree, I shall go back again lol to edit my post.

Re: The Blackout

Nah Katie it was clear. That was my mistake not yours. Again I was half sleep so chyea that was my fault.

Re: The Blackout

First of all, I'd like to apologize for being gone so long. Just so you know, weekends are typically really busy for me. If I'm not on for a day or two in the weekend, that doesn't mean I've given up on this.




Deallo wrote:Gah, sorry, I meant facilitate the Purge. But after reading my Scarlet River's history; I'm now going to kindly revise my question to: if my character could have possibly been one of the Militia officers who did the dirty work of the Purge.

@Desire - Ah crap. Boss just called me to get to work now. The cook had an accident and now I'm covering for him =.= Do you mind if I submit Leon (The other militia leader) tomorrow?


Yes Deallo, that's all fine, he can be older. Life comes first, please get him in as soon as you can(: As for becoming a GM (I think it was you who asked right?) as long as you're dedicated, I'll make you one.

Okay, she's accepted(:




Fruity_Loopsxx wrote:Wow weak...im just going to let the head gm decide so off ya go


Fruity. Do not argue with my GMs. In the rules, it says: "If one of my Co-GMs says something, listen. Just because they're not GM doesn't mean they don't have authority in here, and I discuss all decisions with them first, so odds are, if they ask you to do something, it's because we agreed on it first" So, you should know, that if my Co's say something, that means that I support them. If Fallen says to fix your CS, please don't argue and just fix it. I'll accept him when she says he's acceptable.

Yes, I should have made this more clear to everyone, they are all be under the tree together, if someone posted against that, can they please fix it?

Oh oops my bad I'll change that. See this is what happens when you post this mess half sleep XD.

Re: The Blackout

lol XD I didn't mean to imply that all memories of it would fade, more along the lines that the present generation would be far enough away time wise to allow it so that electricity and technology are something they had little to no experience with. That's just my take on things. On the generational side, time had a rather quick way of warping and changing ideas before modern technology. Except for key things like religion most ideas would shift as you got father away from the source of it and as more time passes. but now I'm babbling.

Re: The Blackout

@whscorbin Gosh, I hope Old Lady Gurty is okay... Then again it is only rumors. :p Also three generations is not nearly long enough to fade away memories of what used to be. Many of the characters are orphans ofcourse, so that has some detrimental effect on the passing on of knowledge, but we have to remember its not the case in every family, especially in families associated with the Militia who benefit from some special training school as seen in Scarlet's post on 8/16

Re: The Blackout

@Deallo The panic would have ended on 2018 and the current year is 2072 give or take. Them being old enough to be around for when the panic started due to the lights being off would put them at fifty four if they were born on the last day of the panic and were alive for the present time. Certain tribes in Russia would actually Also the time setting is made so that three good generations would have passed so that memories of how things used to be would have faded into dust along with the people who were alive during that time. Also old people would have been very vulnerable during the panic and the years after. :) this is all my opinion of course and Katie has the final say on everything :) just wanted to chip in

This wasn't written into anything but with modern science gone people would be more prone to disease again and so death tolls would sky rocket making life spans rather short. Especially when ended at knife or arrow point.

Also fun little fact. Ancient societies used to be rather hard on old people. In desperate conditions the Eskimos would push there elderly out on blocks of ice to die if they didn't have a lot of food. Nomadic tribes would often just leave there old people when they were not able to keep up anymore. In the U.S.A we send them to a place called florida and only allow them out once or twice a year :) the last one is a joke of course :)
