I'm Sorry, Hannah

Samuel Johnson; March 14, 2010

PERSONAL ACTION:

A few times when Devonshire is not around Sam will be unable to stop himself from sobbing. He will mutter "I'm sorry" and "Hannah". He will hold the blush of health fan and look in a mirror at these times if convenient. He will do his best to avoid being caught. If he is caught he will insist it is just the pressure, promise it won't happen again and try to make an excuse to retire to some other room.

Influence Response:

Perhaps it is the fear of impending death that drives you to remember your long buried transgressions. Perhaps you are simply buckling under stress.

Your Regent never directly catches you having these uncharacteristic pangs of guilt, although she does look at you somewhat quizzically as she runs into you coming out of a particularly bad spell. Your behavior is never talked about, nor is your letter, and Devonshire seems to strive her best to ignore any awkwardness between you.

While you aren't exactly the most empathetic of fellows, it becomes increasingly clear as you haven in close proximity to her that she is significantly stressed as well. She spends a large amount of her time drafting correspondences you are unable to read and pouring over what scant books on metaphysics she can find in the Chantry's lackluster excuse for a library, but in general has a listless and tense manner to most of her actions.

You happen upon her in the early evening hours of March the twenty-second to find that she's collapsed in the Chantry's vestibule. After a few seconds of sheer panic, you realize that no injury has befallen her, and that she is merely somehow gotten herself indecorously drunk. Her clothing is uncharacteristically feminine for once (a loose cotton dress) and there seems to be some sort of sticky balm smeared across her forehead.

OOC Note: Your one level of Occult is enough for you to remember that the night prior to you finding the regent in such a state was the Vernal Equinox. Feel free to submit additional actions should you want to do anything while the regent is intoxicated. It should be noted that she is very very groggy and reluctant to move very much, but that she is not unconscious.

ST Notes: Larissa is getting angrygrams from Lord Cromwell and is still wracked with guilt about either murdering Haldor or letting Haldor live (whichever she chose).

Samuel Johnson; March 14, 2010

PERSONAL ACTION:

Whilst Devonshire is asleep Sam will use the I-pod he scrounged to listen to old CONFEDERATE war songs. (He will hum them if they cannot be found with his non-existent Computers skill.) He will also put in some aggressive violin heavy classical pieces. He will then stand in front of a mirror and deliver inspiring speeches as well as baddass ultimatums to people both living and dead. He will also practice his stare down. He will watch to make sure she doesn't stagger by.

Influence Response:

Seeing as both you and Devonshire were last really alive and well appraised of human culture at a time in which motion pictures were still not yet on the horizon, the Bronx Chantry lacks Internet access and you're both a little confused as to how to manipulate the mysterious gray-boxes of this century produce research, music, and/or pornography. However, as you are merely trying to get some confederate war music and violins to play on your hand-held phonograph device, I will allow it that your loyal man Raphael has graciously filled your i-pod with tunes to your liking - probably after some sort of adventure in which he picked it up out of a secret color-coded box that had been thrown in a public trash can which he had located via cryptic messages left on the napkins of a diner he was instructed to go to via a secret number cipher that was painted on the sidewalk by gang members and then erased by having mob arsonists set the sidewalk on fire an hour later... or something like that.

In any event, you have your i-pod and rock out to such oldies but goodies as "Dixie Land," "Shiloh's Hill" and "Flight of the Doodles" as you tell the mirror how it's fallen right into your trap and must capitulate or pay the penalty for disloyalty... and stuff. You figure it's easiest to pretend you're telling off Molly, because for all you know she could be actually be right behind you and you wouldn't see her as you pontificated at the mirror. You do, of course, check behind you before pontificating to make certain that this isn't the case.

As far as you know, regent Devonshire remains crumpled in the coat room as you do this. You eventually pause in your reverie as you hear the distant sound of a hat rack being wrestled with, followed by footsteps leading off into what you think should be the room Devonshire's claimed for herself. You wait a few tense moments before ascertaining that the coast is clear and continuing to cackle as an imaginary Seth grovels at your boots.
