[The earth rumbles and shakes. OH MY GOD, EARTHQUAKE!!!

Except. If you're on the west side of town, you may notice a new addition.

While the rest of Burby is bright and sunny, the sky above the mansion is cloudy.

A young girl peeks hesitantly out the window. Will you come knock on the door?]

[Alec is going to poke at the clouds and see if he can move them with his powers.


Because why the hell not?]
13pitchblackcats: At least it's not acid rain. (Rain)

[Those clouds aren't going anywhere. Misery has inexplicable storm-front-bringing abilities. The banshee-girl wanders onto the mansion's porch and it promptly begins to rain.]

Nice weather we're having.

[Her voice is completely monotone.]

[The rain hits Alec for all of three seconds before it decides to avoid him. He may to be able to stop it from raining but he can sure as well stop it from hitting him.]

It is.

You're new. Welcome to Burby.
13pitchblackcats: Don't worry, ceilings always cause problems for me, too.  That and walls. (Baking)

I don't want to be welcomed to anything that sounds like a medical condition.
element_wizard: (giggle)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-08 10:31 pm (UTC)(link)

Don't be welcomed to Burby.
13pitchblackcats: I used to have imaginary friends, too. But they blew up. (Misery)

[She stares at him, slooowly tilting her head.]

You don't have anything contagious, do you? Small pox, large pox, really-bad-initis, PLAGUE?
element_wizard: (Mischief)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-09 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
[He grins at her.]

Nope. Sorry. I could if you wanted me to.

[Because he's weird like that.]
13pitchblackcats: Is your ship sinking? (Um)

[personal profile] 13pitchblackcats 2013-01-09 01:29 am (UTC)(link)
NO, I don't want you to!

He holds up his hands in a placating gesture.

"Fine. Fine. I won't. Promise."
element_wizard: (Hee)

[personal profile] element_wizard 2013-01-09 02:23 am (UTC)(link)

Is she a friend of yours?

[He's asking both at once?]
13pitchblackcats: Things could be worse than they usually are. (Mud)

[personal profile] 13pitchblackcats 2013-01-09 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[It's just not the same with all of their friends. Misery is despondent. Really.]

Yeah. She's Ruby. She's the best.
13pitchblackcats: I used to have imaginary friends, too. But they blew up. (Weep)

[personal profile] 13pitchblackcats 2013-01-12 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
And I'm Misery.

[to Ruby] We're in Burby. It's not a disease.

It's a small town in fairy.

I'm Alec.
13pitchblackcats: Is your ship sinking? (Um)

[personal profile] 13pitchblackcats 2013-01-17 02:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Noooo... but I've read fairy tales. They usually end horrifically. [Misery looks slightly less miserable. Her voice even perks up.] I like them.
