DEATH ACTING ODD. HTML FAILING. JUST WANT TO LEAVE A NOTE? IT ALL GOES HERE.
likescats: (Default)
DEATHS VOICE: When he uses this voice, commands he says have to be followed and questions he asks have to be answered truthfully. If your character is immortal, they would be immune from it. 

I will always ask permission before using it. Even if you post here. But just letting me know you're cool with it, is helpful for me.

Leave a  note here if you don't mind it being used on your characters. Or if you do, or if you want to discuss whether or not it would affect your character. 

SEEING SOULS: Death can see a person's soul and tell whether they are human, demon, elf, etc. Sometimes he can tell people's names but that's a hit and miss. He doesn't really comment about things much. But if you want him to not be able to tell what your character is, we can hand wave that.

I BELIEVE THE IDEA IS TO LEAVE A MESSAGE AND I WILL GET BACK TO YOU.

-Death
likescats: (ONWARD BINKY)
[Death had not enjoyed the holiday. Not at all. However when he walks outside he finds a rather strange, rather large box waiting for him by the mailbox.

A. There is a white horse standing outside the house. No such thing as a white horse you say? Binky is odd like that. Death is patting his head. Binky is a little confused at the moment.

B. There is a skeleton in a black cloak riding through the air on a white horse. They've just landed on the ground near you. 

C.  High School History Class. You guys still have the best teacher. The walking skeleton whose voice just appears in your heads.]

NOW. TODAY I THINK WE WILL BE DISCUSSING THE TRADITION OF CELEBRATING THE WINTER SOLSTICE AND THE NEW YEAR. ON THE DISC, THIS IS REFERRED TO AS....

[Goes to write on the board.]

HOGSWATCH.

AROUND THIS TIME OF YEAR, CHILDREN ALL OVER THE DISC ARE WRITING THEIR LETTERS TO THE HOGFATHER, ASKING FOR GIFTS AND STATING WHETHER THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD. IT IS TRADITION. JUST AS CARDS AND POORLY WORDED CAROLS ARE ALSO TRADITIONS.

NOW THEN CHILDREN. I WILL REQUIRE ONE ASSIGNMENT FROM ALL OF YOU. DUE IN A WEEKS TIME.

WRITE A LETTER TO THE HOGFATHER.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?
likescats: (DO YOU NEED SOMETHING?)
[Hello Mayfield. By now you're all enjoying the day, some people shrinking. Some people growing. It's all strange and odd. But hey at least most of them look human. 

Yeah....about that.

Well there is suddenly a 30 ft Skeleton in a black robe standing in the park in Mayfield. Anyone nearby ...or a block away really. Will hear a voice appear in their head. It's even a bit echo-y ]



....OH DEAR. I SEEM TO HAVE ....GROWN A SMALL BIT.

OR RATHER....A LARGE BIT.


likescats: (Default)
[Phone: A voice appears in your head.]

IF ANYONE NEEDS TO GET TO A SAFE PLACE. I WILL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU.

I WILL ALSO BE ASSISTING ANYONE WHOSE SOULS SHOULD HAVE MOVED ON BY NOW. I'M AFRAID THAT THIS HELP IS NOT UP FOR DEBATE.


[Action:

A. Death walks the streets of Mayfield. He is looking for anyone who might need help. Stop and stare? Ask for help? Scream and run away?

B. There is a zombie hanging on his arm. Just looking at it annoyed and shaking it off. It's bone dude. You can't eat him.

C. A swish of a scythe and the now properly dead drone, falls to the ground. He sighs and checks the blade.]

NO SOUL. THAT IS TROUBLING.
likescats: (NOTHING ODD HERE AT ALL)
[Okay Death is sure of one thing when he wakes up.

He hadn't fallen asleep in the first place. He get's up and looks at his hands. Well at least he was still normal looki....

At least he still had his body this time.

Though he was sure he would have remembered changing out of his robes into a strange...suit of some sort.

He looks around the room, and then back to the bed.

Hey, Didi. Have a skeleton tapping your shoulder.]

I'M AFRAID WE SEEM TO HAVE A PROBLEM.
likescats: (DO YOU NEED SOMETHING?)
 [After seeing the town decide to treat death so lightly, making a game of it in fact, Death was not pleased.  

And then he learned even better news. And now he's doing something he knows is a bad idea. 

Thinking things over.

Mayfield have a phone call. And a voice just appearing in your head when you pick up the phone.]

DO YOU EVER WONDER WHY THINGS HAPPEN, THE WAY THEY DO?

I DON'T THINK I'LL EVER REALLY UNDERSTAND LIFE.


[A brief pause. Less...contemplative tone.]

ALSO, I NOTICED THE SCHOOL WAS CLOSED. DOES THAT MEAN I NO LONGER HAVE A JOB? OR DO THEY ASSIGN THE TEACHERS NEW ONES IN THE SUMMER?

[Action: And of course you can find him in few places.

A. Walking through the park, a tall skeletal man, with a black cloak, scythe ......and a kitten on his shoulder.

B. At the library, minus the cat this time. The scythe is leaning against a book shelf as he looks through the books. 
 
C. At the door of 726 Anderson Lane]
likescats: (Human)
 [Death had woken up. As he normally didn't sleep, this was odd. 

Oh.....well hello skin.

Phone: A familiar voice, many of you are hearing with your ears for the first time ever]


I take it, that all of our regains are gone now. Did I miss a holiday?


[Action:

A. Inside the house, looking at a hand, dressed in normal black clothing.

B. At Susan's house, checking up on the family
 
C. Walking down the street, hey it's a strange old man.
 
D. In History class, your teacher now has skin.]

[OOC: All replies will be from [livejournal.com profile] humandeath
likescats: (FEAR NOT THE REAPER)
[Okay so the skeleton was creepy. The addition of the black robe didn't help much with things either. Which is why anyone who's walking by Death today might be even more unnerved to see the new addition to the ensemble. Death, has his scythe back. You can find him out and about today. 

A. He's cutting the grass outside his house. With  his scythe. One blade at a time. Sometimes stopping to look at the blade carefully with an experts eye.

B. At school, the scythe is leaning against the desk. He doesn't seem to think there is anything odd about this. 
 
C. At the park, just walking through. Not looking out of place at all.

Phone: There is now a voice in your head as you pick up.]

WOULD I BE ABLE TO SPEAK WITH ANYONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT SOULS?
likescats: (AN INTERESTING CHOICE OF WORDS)
 [Mayfield! Guess who got their black cloak back and is even more unintentionally creepy then before.

No....not Susan. Death. You can also find him in a few places today.


A. Walking down the street. People there is a giant skeleton dressed in black walking by you. Feel free to stare.

B. Sitting with a tiny kitten on his steps. He seems to be trying to convince it that snow is not going to eat him. ....it doesn't seem to be working.

C. Grading papers in either the school classroom, or the library. ...it's very...interesting handwriting.]

CONSIDERING THE TOWN SEEMS TO DO THINGS AROUND THE HOLIDAYS. I WAS WONDERING.

WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE, AND WHAT IS IT LIKE?
likescats: (CAN I HELP YOU?)
[A. TEACHING:

High school students. By now you've realized there is something odd about your History teacher. The fact that he's teaching the history of another world may be one sign. The fact that he's a 7ft tall skeleton might be a better one. Still he's been here for a while now so all but the newer students would be astonished by this fact and that when he talks, you don't really hear it. It just arrives in your head.

The name Bill Door, is still written on the board. At the moment there are a few chalk diagrams on the board. There is a lot of stench lines.]

TODAY CLASS. WE WILL BE LEARNING ABOUT ONE ONE OF THE DISCS MORE.....INTERESTING CITIES. 

ANKH-MORPORK. 

THERE ARE MANY LEGENDS SURROUNDING THE FOUNDING OF THE CITY OF COURSE. ACCORDING TO SOME, THE FIRST CITY WAS BUILT BY TWO BROTHERS WHO WERE RAISED BY HIPPOPOTAMUS. ANOTHER LEGEND SUGGEST THAT MANY CENTURIES AGO THE DISC WAS FLOODED. AN ARK WAS CONTRUCTED, CONTAINING TWO OF EVERY ANIMAL. WHEN THE ACCUMULATED DUNG OF FORTY DAYS AND NIGHTS WAS DROPPED OVER THE SIDE, THEY CALLED IT ANKH-MORPORK.

HOWEVER, IN REALITY IT WAS A SMALL CITY BUILT TO SURROUND THE TOWER OF ART AT THE UNSEEN UNIVERSITY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS SO FAR?


[B. Walking down the street, he seems lost in thought. You can tell this because he doesn't seem to notice that he's walking through things, like telephone poles and mailboxes as though they weren't' even there. Feel free to point that out, or just stop and stare.]
likescats: (LOOKING UP AT THE SKY)
[He was quite interested in seeing what the Hogfather left for him. He finds this note and opens it. And then goes upstairs to a new world.

And he had been human, with proper human emotions. And then his entire family was killed and he suddenly felt the immense loss of death properly. Grief, and sadness and this time there was nothing to stop any of the emotions from overcoming him.

A long while after that, he's back to normal. But the memories are still strong and he'll pick up the phone in slightly shaky hands.]

HOW....HOW CAN YOU STAND IT? THE GRIEF....

[Fail Filter to Susan]

SUSAN....ARE YOU ALRIGHT?
likescats: (Default)
 [Death did not like thanksgiving. Mostly because, apparently it was a family holiday and he didn't even get to see his Granddaughter.

Oh and also the spiders. He did not like the spiders. Because he had to get rid of them. No, he doesn't want to talk about it. Also now Misty is a drone.

So clearly to cheer himself up....Kitty. You can find him

a. Walking down the street with a rather scared kitten, oddly enough the kitten isn't so much scared of him, as everything else. Kitten is sitting on his shoulder.

b. In the park, how did his kitten get into a tree? He really wishes he knew, either way he's trying to reach it. 

c. In his front lawn trying to convince a rather cowedly kitten that hiding under the stairs is not a good idea.]
likescats: (CAN I HELP YOU?)
[Filtered to Slugger]

MIGHT I HAVE A WORD WITH YOU?

 [Fail!Filtered to Susan/everyone hears this. If you do pick up the phone the voice isn't so much "heard" as it just appears in your head.]

.....I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM THE TOWN THIS MORNING. APPARENTLY I AM SUPPOSED TO BE A HISTORY TEACHER. 
likescats: (A BISCUIT)
 [Death isn't used to free time.

Really not used to free time. So he's trying to find something to do with it. Happily for Susan, this doesn't always involve visits to her house only most of the time. It does however mean you can find Death/a 7 ft tall skeletal man

a.In front of a pet store. Looking at the cats.

b. a store, where Death is examining such oddities as... a camera, no really where is the imp?

c.  the library, there has to be a book on hobbies somewhere.]
likescats: (LOOKING UP AT THE SKY)
 [Well now, that was strange. After trying to convince people to drink milk Death realizes he's back to normal. And when he find a letter in the mail with a picture of a skeleton on it.....

He's a little more back to normal.]

[Filtered to Susan and she may notice the voice with no "quotation marks" is back]

I SEEM TO HAVE REGAINED MY BODY.

[And you can find a skeletal man dressed in normal clothes out on the lawn looking around. The world is different when you're in your own body. Also if you do talk to him you'll notice that you don't so much as hear him speaking as the words just arrive in your head somehow. ]
