Some light reading and random thoughts )

Getting some info out of Naomi, finding out that she is skipping town, and no new Mage-Toy for me. )

Talking with Ila about books, Nick, her family, and Omens of things to come. )

Talking with Noki and having a message delivered )

Right now? Right now, I am watching Faster-Than-The-Cat and Bartok tease the ever living hell out of LOLcat. Been months since Faster came to visit and I can only assume that Bartok fetched her, for the sole purpose of tormenting Nick's cat. Ah hell. I'd better save the fuzzball before it has a nervous breakdown. Cat'll be safe enough in the bathroom, then I can take a break and get some reading done.

I hope that Nick is managing okay.

Looks like Nick was right  )

Once I finally got back home, I stuffed myself stupid, fed the cat, Bartok (who promised not to kill the cat, thank Gaia), checked on the robin’s egg, and crashed for the night. So flipping tired.

So, I was passing over Edgewood, when I noticed X and Emma talking. So, I stuck around and listened for a little bit. They were talking about Riley killing Finds-Death and Silvertip being kinda pissed off about this fast. Silvertip had cursed Riley, or something. Will have to ask the Uktena about that. Spoke up and told them I knew the story of Finds-Death and Riley, They were interested, so I filled them in. 

Basically, Finds-Death, who was a Red Talon, had been heading in to the city via the Umbra. Crossing over in to people's homes in Homid, then murdering them (and occasionally their pets) with whatever weapon happened to be handy. Kitchen knives, that sort of thing. Nick helped with figuring out what was going on (I left that part out) and I eventually asked a Cockroach Spirit, who told me it was a wolf with a red stripe doing the killing. Did some talking and asking around, which eventually lead to figuring out it was Finds-Death that was doing the killing. Went around and told people what was going on, because, well, she was killing people and the mundane cops were starting to notice.

As far as fallout was concerned, I knew that Silvertip had kicked Finds-Death out of her pack and that the Talon left the Sept. Riley went after her with Jack, but instead of letting one of the Philodox (AKA Jack, or someone else), Riley killed Finds-Death. Griffin took exception to this and months later, tossed Riley's ass in to WolfHome. Walker is damn lucky to have gotten out of that place. So many don't, according to the stories, Have seen hints of what WolfHome did to Riley - like that one time she got pissed off at Sue, so knocked over the Metis' motorcycle and pissed on it. That's a wolfish mindset if I've ever seen one. :)

Anyway. I gave them the basics of the story. About then, Silvertip showed up and Emma got snarly at the Uktena, for possibly laying a curse on Riley and uhh. Fuck. It degraded fast into a fucking Crinos pissing match. I got in to the air. Fast. Jesus. Neither of them were communicating well and the situation degraded fast. Thank Gaia it was a small moon. Emma wasn't backing down and Silvertip ended up storming off. Fuck. Crazy fucking wolves.

Will have to ask Silvertip about curse-stuff later, after she calms down. I mean, Noki could make someone think they are cursed, without all that much work. Shadowy creepy red-eyed bird thing following you around and all your stuff randomly disappearing.  I don't much care for the idea of Riley being cursed, either via a gift or a spirit.

So, a little while back, Thomas had that dust up with those Spirals in the warehouse that ended up in the news. Apparently he grabbed a Spiral Kin named Eddy, which attracted some nasties. I have some info from Thomas, on what he ran in too. There were three Spirals: One was wearing a skinned human and had a nasty Fetish. Thomas suspects that this one was a Theurge. Second Spiral was a massive Metis with horns. The third one was likely a Metis, as the fur was all messed up. (+bbread 11/223). After encountering some suits in Harbor Park (Naomi and Jeremiah were there as well), I decided to do some digging and I came up with some things...

Phone Calls and paying off my Police Contacts. )

Gift Learning and staying up waaaaaay to late )

Running in to Emma and speculation )

Filling in Nick and getting that Mage Knife back )

After dropping the Knife off at my apartment, I went to a pre-arranged meeting with Slug, where I gave him my notes on the Spooks. I owe him for the info he passed me a few weeks ago, so this should even the score. He asked to pick my brain and some point and if I was alright. Guess being drop-dead exhausted was showing on my face. Finally got to go to bed and get some sleep. Yay! Sleep...zzzzZZzzzz.

Lets see. Things have been fairly quite of late, on the whole. Javid showed up out of the on the Denton Farm Driveway one morning, so I filled him in on the latest bit of news. Nothing too exciting there. 

Eventually, I went stir crazy enough to walk over to Edgewood and brought over a small amount of venison as an excuse for the walk. Met Emma there, Nick, and Duke. Duke creeps me the hell out. Was a good walk. Passed info back and forth with Emma. Learned that the Spirals had skipped town and I could fly around  without risk of being shot while in the city now. But ugg, I ended up feeling trapped in there. Do not do well in places where I don't have easy access to a quick exit. 

So, knowing that I could go in to the city again, I checked in on S&L. Place seems to be doing alright. Seems that Brad bought me some new plates and put sparkles on the edge of at least one of them. Absolutely adorable. That man is sweet. He must have done it for Valentines day, but with everything going tits up on me, I missed it. I will have to do something special for him. 

Since I was back in the city, I did some patrolling and spotted a few familiar faces heading in to the Rat and Raven,. Nick and Naomi. Dropped in and said hello. Nick gave Naomi some sort of warding necklace. Damn. I want a proper look at the old one. No way in hell Mouse is sending those here, for her. But, no dice. Will have to try again later. We ended up going for a drive and passing information around. Learned that the Spiral Kin who'd been shooting my kids was named Eddy and that Naomi had served with him briefly. Go figure. 

And tonight? Any doubt I had about Emma and Nick being an item, flew right out the window. Seems that Nick told Emma what he is and now she is pissed. Joy! I tracked the Get on Fenris down, mostly to see if Nick should be hiding himself in a hole right now. Found out that the two of them had been an item for months and judging by Emma's level of upset and what she said, he got in to her pants before letting her in on his little secret. Well now, that was a royal Dick move if I ever saw on. Geeze Nick. Thought you had more class than that. Anyway. I talked to Emma a bit. Silvertip showed up and between the two of us, we got Emma a bit more calm. Once Silvertip left, I dragged Emma out for a few drinks and played 'Distract the Get'. Think I was fairly successful in making her feel a bit better.  After Emma left, I sent Nick an email. I was pretty retrained, even if the tone of the email I sent. was annoyed as hell. Told him should get ready to start apologizing, if he actually cares about Emma. It was tempting to open up on him with both barrels, but that wouldn't have done anyone any good. 

That done, I headed in to the city for a quick meeting with Slug. Now that I know Silvertip like chewing coco leaves, I figured I could get him some as a gift and Slug knows some dealers. I do too, but the whole Ex-Cop thing doesn't tend to make them like me much.  
val_corax: (Hrumph!)
A Call from Emma, followed by a visit from the Get and the Fox )

Phone calls, apologies, and more details. )

Checking in on the Fox and feeling Guilty )

Fuck. Those Spirals were clever. Spirals aren't /supposed/ to be clever. This /has/ to be the work of Nightmare up in Seattle. Thrice damned Gaia forsaken Buzzard. If it wasn't for Worm sending hitmen after me, I probably would have found the Spiral Kinsman and done something about him shooting my kids... Which would have ended, oh, so, fucking badly....

val_corax: (Val!)
So, I moved out to Denton Farm with Brad. Been keeping my head down and staying out of sight.

Well, aside from that one midnight trip out into the city to find Worm, meeting Slug out by Sunrise Road, and that one trip out to Edgewood. Okay, okay, so I haven’t exactly been behaving. But I’ve been TRYING! Fuck. I hate being so out of touch with what is going on!

Summoning the Sun and a Visitor )

Nick gets mentioned and I get pissed off. )

Cit News, Summoning, and returning a Tail )

Warning Ila that a Storm may be brewing and getting invited to meet the Family... )

I missed a visit from Quin, while I was off talking with Ila. He’d brought by some roadkill venison. Yum! The next morning, Brad and I talked some on the topic of me heading well out of town came up again, this time to the Dakotas. Honestly, that idea is sounding better and better. Camping with Brad, the girls and leaving my troubles behind has a certain siren's lure to it. Spent most of the day helping Brad butcher that roadkilled deer Quin had brought over. I’d never butchered a whole deer before. It was quite the process, but it was good to learn something new, and too keep busy.

Bad Dreams and Locating Worm. ) 

I need to adjust what is written on my board. )

Human Society can do without people who kill for money. Drop a rock on his head, I say. )

Later on, I finally got a chance to properly study Silvertip's tail. Huh. No time effect. Wyld Magic is still raging about the thing. Weird This bears investigating.

Flux Ream - Not an ideal vacation destination )

Nick and Mario Cart )

Chit-Chat and rabbits ).

And, I finally found a Kinfolk Manager for Snakes and Lattes, which will make my life a hell of a lot easier. Natalie of the Get of Fenris, who has a set of twins about Zoe's age. I should tell Emma about them.

val_corax: (Hrumph!)
Getting shot in the back! )

Telling people about the Hollow Man and teaching Thomas a Rite )

I'm planning on a rather big summoning in a few months. It'll be risky. But, you know what they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained!

val_corax: (Val!)
 Gah. January has been busybusy. With lots of things happening, it all sort of blurs together after awhile!  Certain that I'm forgetting things, but here are the highlights!

A belated X-Mas gift should not be this much trouble. ) 

Mage Drama and telling Nick about a Glade. )

Nick and Emma. Huh! )

Naomi comes back to St. Claire and Nick is gonna get her wolf back. )

Other than all that, there is someone picking off restaurant managers. One was found missing his brains. Then there is that whole Robo-Roach thing going on. I took a peek at the toy store that is selling the kit and holy, it is not a place I'd want to visit. Probably end up calcified. I'm gonna let the wolves deal with /that/ problem. There was also that Fomor that spewed worms and went splat. All and all a really busy month!

Belated X-Mas Gifts )

New Years! Hello 2014. Spent New Years with Brad, same as last year. :D. 
val_corax: (Garou)
Christmas time with Family. :) )

Mage go splat! )

Talking with Ila and the promise to share contacts in the future. )

Left Nick a message, saying that he should come by, as I needed to talk with him. Great. Now I have to talk with him and the last time I saw him, he was snarling at me. :P
val_corax: (Hrumph!)
Back home and still so much to do. ) 

That was not the welcome home I'd been hoping for... )

I did my job. I would never, ever, send someone in to a fight without good up to date info. )  

Was it worth even asking for help? No. Not this time. I need to be able to handle things on my own a bit more effectively. I'm going to take up target practice with a bolt action rifle and pick up knife fighting again.

Trying to report in and shotgun to the FACE! )

Following the Fomori and calling in the troops. )

Paranoia Rising... ) 

Fomori Go Splat )

I managed to get to Mom and Dad's place okay.  Mom fixed me right up, while giving me an earful for letting the infestation get so bad in the first place. Eased off when I explained why, though. After a few days, I'd healed the worst of the damage and was feeling like myself again. No more worms and proper food. Woo-Hoo! Mom also promised to pass on word about that house I'd come across. Make certain that folks knew about it and checked it out, just encase it is still in use. When I was mostly healed up, I headed back to St. Claire.
