“Cheese Grater” Jones

I’m standing at the street corner of the hotel’s block, trying to flag down a taxi. I’m trying even harder to calm myself down.

“Oh man, oh man. Pull’s never done that on its own before. This is…”

My phone rings again. It’s Dom. I smile. Talking to him may be just what I need to calm me down. My best friend and the only other person in the world who knows Pull My Strings is magic. Well, aside from Jojo now. I pick up and switch it over to speakerphone so I can hear him over the traffic.

“Dom, am I glad to hear your voice. Talk to me, Mr. Heartthrob.”

Lhinzee’s still not here, but Mark found out what was happening and stormed off. Where are you, Josh?

“I had a crisis. Things got bad with my cousin. Dom… Pull played The Chord on its own.”

There’s a long silence.

“Dom? Are you still there?”

Man, fuck the band. Tell me where you are and I’m on my way.

“Dom, you don’t hafta-”

I mean it. Crisis first, Lhinzee second. Gimme the street number, I’ll come pick you up.

“Yeah, okay. I’m outside the Ameristar. Yeesh, Dom. You’re too wonderful sometimes, ya know?”

[Call Ended 3:57 minutes
Remaining minutes: 210.90]

Shit. Now I gotta wait here and avoid my cousin until Dom gets here.

“At least the worst part’s already over…”

Granted. The sun will explode… in approximately 957,083,416 Earth years.

I wish I could turn inanimate objects into animate objects.

Joan rushes back over to me, miming furiously. What the hell is this?

“Are you okay, Jojo? Come on, speak to me!”

Shit, what happened, what-

That last strum. Loud and familiar… the chord that almost kills my hand when I play it on stage. The chord that made Terminal Panacea.

“Oh no! It played The Power Chord! Ah, ah… what’s a guy gotta dooooo?”

Think, CG, think!

“Y-you’re gonna go to wherever you were already planning to go and do what you were already planning to do and- and you can talk as much as you want! And I’m sorry, okay? I really am!”

I rush off in the other direction, headed for the lobby. I gotta get outta here. I’m dangerous.

A few slips, but I am upright once more. If we take out the man, his gloom will dispel. But perhaps there is a way that will not risk my lifespan.

“I am here, Miss Kat! I am not yet done for!”

I pull my gun and fire two wild shots at the man. Is the muzzle flash bright enough to shine through the gloom? The Manacap has fallen dark again and I dare not risk another lightning strike.

That’s it! I do not need to be seen!

I ignore the pain in my ribs and gather as much breath as I can.

“IL ETAIT UNE DAME TARTIIIIIINE….” gasp

DANS UN BEAU PALAAAAAAAIS…” gasp

(I don’t mind bunnying to an extent. For a character who’s made to be run through the wringer, it gives me something to work with. And you do make a point about the shouting. Minor edits and on with the show.)

Jesse Bellamy

I finally manage to sit up. Fool that I am, I forgot about Miss Kat’s plan in the hopes of playing hero. Non. I must not be so reckless. Freedom is something to be savored, not wasted. Still, I try to push myself up. As long as I can get back up, I will not lose this fight or any other.

Bon sang, I almost had him! I’m winded again and my ribs are screaming at me. Lying there, I struggle to catch my breath. I struggle to see through the gloom. I grope for my gun.

I cannot see my hands. I cannot see any of me. It is all the same gloom.

Ce qui la baise?!” I gasp.

Crap, is that another one? Just pretend they’re not there. I’m so stressed out right now, I can practically feel Pull’s strings vibrate. It keeps giving off soft, discordant thrums every so often. Come on, CG, keep it together.

I blow out a sigh through my teeth, my cheeks puffing out. Pull lets out a louder strum as I do so.

Knowing Joan’s gonna bug me about Pull again, I loudly say “Oh, just shut it. I don’t wanna hear another word from you.”

(Misunderstanding Town elections are underway and CG is campaigning hard.)

I don’t wanna tip my hand too soon, but the Manacap would actually make it worse for Jesse.

Well, since Jesse’s plan involves fucking himself over, I can’t promise anything.

Like I said, I have alchemy on my side. Jesse’s willing to put himself through the ringer to take you down.

I figure Jesse’s gonna end up flat on his face before using his so-called last resort.

NOW! I swing at the man and I know that if I don’t connect I will have swung myself off-balance. But either way, I can risk myself to win the fight! I have alchemy on my side!

Miss Lauren makes her move before I can. I pull back and remain alert. Even though my spell will break easily and my opponents are quite skilled, I have a last resort already planned. I scan the area for the enemy woman. Where did she go?

I grab up a large branch and swing it at the nearest skeleton.

Hypocrites! You speak of crime as if you’re above it! Non, vous fils de pute! We will not burst like dogs!”

I have once chance for this. Dropping the branch, I cast CLT and vanish. Trying to move as silently as possible, I advance to strike a gut blow to the man. My spell will break once I touch him, or he touches me, but if I can just get a surprise attack…

Oh, it’s her again.

“I got lost. Point me to the stairs and I’ll be gone.”

Oh, how I wanna be gone.

I push myself up from the ground with a grunt and make sure I haven’t lost anything from my pockets. Nope, both the gun and the mushroom are there.

Hearing Miss Kat’s instructions, I nod. I really wish I could use my gun, but maybe it’s better if I never have to.

“Dammit…”

My mood is sour as I head for the elevator. As I get in one of the maids wheels a big cart in beside me. It’s laden with cleaning supplies and toilet paper and tiny toiletries. Hotel life stuff. We punch our buttons and the elevator lurches into movement. Fuck, I forgot I hate elevators. It takes me a moment to forget my anxiety and return to my previous train of thought.

I’m so lost in thought about Terminal Panacea’s past gigs and what I know Pull My Strings can do that it takes me a while to realize that I accidentally followed the maid out onto the wrong floor.

“Aw, shit, where am I?”
