What I like best about this topic is its creator's name. It is so very fitting.

OOC: Thralni, you definitely ignored some important points - Sherlock's waking of Edith was one, and Cain's absence was another. I'll fix all that in this post, but please, everyone, make sure you don't get caught up in your own plans and forget that others have their own.

IC:

"Filbert."

He turned his head fearfully toward Lisha. She held out her hand. Filbert looked up at her, then down at the flask, at Edith, then back at Lisha.

"What?"

"Give it to me."

Terrified, he handed it over. She immediately put it in a medicinal pouch and shut it tightly.

"What are you-"

"Up!"

Filbert raised himself to his feet slowly, trembling; whether from anger or fear, Lisha decided, was irrelevant. She moved in closer, her face near his.

"What makes you think for an instant that I'd trust a person who has proven himself a completely willing slave of the demon in the past is beyond me, and that puts it in meager company. In fact only your audacity at appearing once again in my presence has kept my knife out of your heart, and believe me, the shock is wearing off. Do you really think yourself free from Orloki?" She snorted. "Great fools make great tools. Stand over there while I tend to Edith. Not a drop of your potion will pass her lips until I know exactly what it is."

"It's a-"

"I don't. care. what you have to say. Stay over there, and in my sight. Don't think I can't bring you back if I have to." She watched him go off, still trembling and almost definitely in rage, then knelt cautiously at Edith's side.

"Edith."

The older woman looked up at her. "Why... what was he..."

"Never mind. Cain brought you back?"

"Ye- yes..."

Lisha placed a hand on her arm. "You are cold."

"Yes."

"Look at me."

Edith turned her head toward Lisha and opened her eyes. They were dull, but the spark was back in them.

"Right. Good. You must tell me what happened-"

"There were-"

"-but not now. Let us follow Cain. He is-"

Is she truly back? Lisha thought. She is no less weak than before.

"...he went that way. After the others. Are you strong enough to stand?"

"Ye- I think so..."

She tried to push herself up but quickly fell back down, exhausted by the effort.

"Just a second-"

She tried again. Lisha placed a hand on her shoulder and helped her straighten up, which she did, successfully. She gave Lisha a weak smile.

I don't need her.

Lisha sheathed her knife to have both hands free.

I could kill them both and be done with it.

A wild yell reached them from down the corridor, echoing strangely. All three heads turned toward its origin.

I could say Orloki repossessed Filbert and killed Edith, and I killed Filbert in return. None of them would check until later, and by then it won't matter.

Lisha looked down at Edith.

Cain risked his soul for hers...

A little tremor sent Filbert stumbling and threw Lisha into Edith. Edith managed to stay off the cave floor.

"Filbert. Come over here slowly."

He obeyed her to the extreme.

"Faster. I said I wouldn't kill you."

He crept over to the other side of Edith.

"Good. Now help her up. Don't worry," she said, silencing Edith's protestations. "I see every motion he makes."

Watching Lisha from under hooded brows, Filbert knelt down and placed Edith's arm over his shoulder. He lifted her slowly, carefully, making sure not to give her cause to cry out.

"Let's go. Filbert, walk with her in front of me." She unsheathed the knife. "I will watch your every step." The distant sound of rumbling stone reached their ears. "And move as fast as Edith can. Orloki is close."

Hmmm. I think my main question is WTF? How can anyone be expected to give you good, reasonable input when given a bare minimum of what you've already thought of? Honestly, I'm not at all sure what the purpose of this topic is. Nobody is going to read all 461 additional pages, and yet without them, everybody's advice is useless. What do you hope to accomplish?

The best root beer I've ever had was in Williamsburg - Chowning's Tavern, I believe. I always assume that the best variation of any given product is made by some small, inconspicuous producer, and it's nice to get some personal experience behind that assumption...

I'd be Moulin Rogue. It's rich and heavy in romanticism, the main characters try to rise above the degeneration all around for the sake of love and strike off on their own but end up getting sucked back in, and as grave and emotional as it is, it can't manage to stay serious for long.

Dareva: now you now what it feels like to be male :P
(with an emphasis on the :P )

I realized today that, while I have never had a valentine on Valentine's Day, this is the first time I don't care. It's kind of a mixed feeling - it's nice not to care, but it's also somewhat worrysome. Eh. That's why there's college, I suppose...

And by the way, I am so sick of people who hate Valentine's Day. I mean, if you don't care about it, fine, join the club. But why hate it? If it's commercialized, ignore it. If you don't have a valentine and you're jealous, get over it. The only reason I could think of to hate it is if your boy/girlfriend broke up with you the previous year on V-Day, or your spouse died on it, or something. To everyone else I say Get the hell over it, I don't care how black your soul is.

Well, it's along the same lines... with all the medical lawsuits flying around, it would be very, very risky not to give forewarning about every little thing that could possibly go wrong. I always half expect to hear "possibilty of choking to death" after any orally ingested drug ad.

The amount of snow we have right now in upstate New York is basically the reason the term "powdering of snow" was created. Aside from that, there are some icy, dirty snowbanks here and there, and they've been slowly shrinking for weeks. All in all, not a great year for snow. We've had maybe one or two great snowstorms so far, but we usually get more. We're supposed to get some tomorrow, and I'm really hoping we do...

Thus, any kind of ad devised to play off of those fears will be ludicrously successful among the general populace... particularly among women, who've been unjustly burdened with such societal pressures for ages. Want to feel young? Spray this stuff all over your body and you'll have women crawling all over you!
...I don't know where you live, but I think I have yet to see an ad aimed specifically at geriatric lesbians... :P

I think Thralni's got a point, seeing as this is a discussion of advertisement, not the actual products being advertised. Regardless of the actual risk of these side effects versus the potential benefits, it seems somewhat ridiculous to laud a drug in the most abstract way possible (the sexual ambiguous old men and women sprinting once the edges of rocky cliffs come to mind) and then spend just as long listing side effects worse than the disease itself. If the possibility of each risk were given, it might be less of a dissuasion, but it never is.

I think we all know why it is that pharmaceutical companies always include this list in their ads, and there's not much they can do about it. But that doesn't make it any less amusing, just more practical.

TM, wouldn't that make you, like, 1/4 emo? I mean, I've seen a few large emo kids in my life, but none extremely so...

Anyone who says that "Anyone that says they aren't a member of any social standing is emo" doesn't know what they're talking about... Karin, it takes something of a fool to miscounstrue that particular photograph. I recognized it immediately and I don't even remember seeing the movie.

I'm pretty sure E.D.F. isn't TM, but I'm definitely starting to think he's a joke. What can I say? I'm an optimist.

At my school we have a "Valentine's Auction". It's a charity event where people can volunteer to auction a lunch date with them... in the school canteen. Just like any normal lunch except you have to pay lots more + you get confetti hearts sprinkled on the table. We used to get candles too but not anymore, too dangerous =/.
This is so painfully lame.

Yeah... a girl in my class is trying to get the senior class to sponsor a "date auction" fund raiser in which people are chosen to go sit up on a stage and have people bid money for a date with them. I don't know which of these two scenarios is more lame. If this thing gets off the ground, though, I'm getting everyone who's willing to bid for members of the same sex. My school, on the rare occasions it recognizes homosexuality, strictly forbids it...

Yeah, Misc. took a bit of getting used to back in the day... then again, there were fewer people there and one could actually read all of the new posts and still have a life off the internet. Which wasn't always a good thing, of course.

Wisey, I know what you mean...

I'd argue that Dikiyoba is strange even for Spiderweb, but not really in a bad way. I mean, his gimmick is conspicuous, but it's not obnoxious. He's too restrained to be obnoxious.

I don't watch TV much and I tend to ignore Internet advertisements, but I love anti-ads. I don't mean the kind Dikiyoba mentioned, although that's close - I'm talking about the kind of ad that says something negative about the product itself. You may think, who would ever pay money for that? But watch ads more closely, and you'll see what I mean. In a typical hour-long TV show, I'd say there are at least one or two anti-ads. It's really quite ridiculous.

So they say...

I think Dareva's made her femininity quite obvious through her posting style. Of Dikiyoba I am not so sure, but I'd assume that he's a youngish teenage boy.

As I explained on some other thread in conversation with Ben, I changed Sir David to Lady Davida during one of our name-changing crazes, one obviously centered around gender-bending, and have left it ever since. I like the look and the sound of it more than Sir David, and anyway, it's kind of fun to confuse newbies. I tried to change it back once but could not, for some reason, and I'm happy enough with it not to change to iDavid or something else.

Is anyone surprised that I'm male? Personally, I thought it was pretty obvious from my general tone, I've only seen a few people refer to me as "LD" or whatever, and none as "she" or "her". It's amazing how much we can sometimes get from something as simple as typing style.

Good lord, Ephesos. Do you have more pictures? I could copy/paste your expression onto the face of one of my friends and there would be no visible difference.

And as I've already stated, Kingy looks almost exactly like someone at my school...

This topic is ridiculous. The entire thing. Aside from what's already been noted, how does it make sense for someone who doesn't understand what's going on to acknowledge that fact and then criticize someone else for essentially the same thing?

For the record, cream pie (or creampie) makes so much more sense than just pie, considering the speaker. Either that or we've all been deceived all along.

I thought the same. I assumed he was a Desper who'd spent a lot of time around Alec and picked up parts of his style, but was overall a better person. Since Alec is no longer Alec, maybe that's even somewhat true.

There's really no need to bring that up, Kel... if he intends to stay, it's best to ignore that.
