This is going up rather late, for which I apologize; just got off a flight. I almost did a travel question, this one occurred to me instead.

Does your character visit their family--whether genetic, formally adopted, informally adopted/just chosen and assembled like half our large-cast-protagonist stories are--often? (If they live with their family, assume holidays/important celebrations at or with visiting family.) How do those visits go, what are they like? Does your character enjoy them?

And for those characters who don't have family, do they wish they did or are they relieved to be spared the... let's call them 'complications' that can go with it?

After the glitter plague has passed, and after Emcee is no longer feeling its effects, he prepares for a little vacation of sorts.

So today, he comes downstairs, dressed in his black leather coat, and carrying an overnight bag. He only stops at the Bar to borrow a smartphone and to leave a note for Jay which reads:


Darling,

I have gone to your Berlin to stay for a few days. I know we've talked about going back, so I've decided that it was time. I'll be all right -- I hope to see Alice and Jared again; I'm sure they'll keep me company just fine.

If anyone happens to ask about me, feel free to tell them where I've gone.

See you soon,
MC



Emcee then pauses at the door just long enough to use a special key for the first time, trusting it to lead to the penthouse, and not a hail of bullets.

He turns the knob. Opens the door.

...It works.

With a breath of relief, Emcee hangs the key around his neck by its chain and slips through, closing the door behind him.

Swamp Thing enters the Bar from outside, from his conduit through the Green. And he enters rather pissed. No smoothed down walking tree man today. No, he's ten feet all, body dripping with the waters of the Amazon, a distinct smell of mold, a distinct air of power about him. Slowly, he reduces his size, alters his look to something more benign (and something less aromatic). But his face remains a scowl.

Bother him at your own risk.

Sinric comes in from his door, looking tired and annoyed, and not in the moods. He heads for the couches by the fire, curling up around the pillows. He's not crying, it's just a trick of the light.

Bonnie has been laid up for a few days in her room, not infecting anyone with the glittersnot.

Now that she's finally stopped sneezing the rotten stuff, she's downstairs with a broom and a vacuum cleaner trying to hoover up as much of it as possible.

Happy Saturday, y'all! I've been listening to the Avett Brothers a ridiculous amount the past few days, so this comes courtesy of "The Weight of Lies":

Oh shit, it's Friday isn't it? Well, I have no ideas so I'm pulling from the Suggestion Box. Today I'm using one from a comment of [personal profile] childofrebellion 's, which has a whole bunch of great ideas:

How physical in their everyday life is your character. Are they a hugger, do they like to lean on people?

Barry is dying.

Or rather, he feels like he's dying.

Actually, he feels like he'd rather be dead than whatever this is.

After a week of coming and going in Milliways and encountering friends who were sick and all the people who were down with it while he felt fine, Barry had figured he was safe.

But, as it turns out, his metahuman metabolism only managed to combat the bug long enough to lull Barry into a false sense of security, then quit the fight abruptly. Now, Barry is that guy, the one who never gets sick, but when he does get sick he gets it the worst of all.

On a couch near the fireplace, in a nest made up of ALL the blankets and wrapped up to his head, Barry suffers. He had every intention of quarantining himself in a room upstairs, but the trek was too much. So now he's huddled on the couch with his knees tucked up to his chest and just the top of his head sticking out of the blankets, with rats bringing him soup and more tissues to replace those covered in glittering day-glo orange snot overfilling a nearby small trash can.

His tablet is propped on a nearby coffee table, and Barry is watching old episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Don't judge him, just pity him and his miserable state.

Cassian's been taking the medicine that Barry got for him, the day one and trying to work. Curled up on the couch with a datapad along with tea and soup has worked fairly well. Though he's been cold, he's stopped wearing his jacket, it catches the glitter too quickly. Instead he's under a blanket that's striped with the colors of a sunset.

His datapad is on his chest as he's been doing research into the history of the Empire, the number of failed assassinations for Palapatine makes for hard reading. At some point later in the day, he falls asleep, he would never think of doing this if he were healthy but this cold is draining.

Tiny tag: Cassian Andor, glittersnot
OOC: Catch him asleep or awake

I love all the glittersnot posts, Milliways' diseases always go in fascinating ways.

Yrael with glitter in cat form is adorable and hilarious.

Milliways finds a way to make things worse for Baze and Chirrut.

Bonnie tries to help out everyone who's sick.

Now what have you finished and are you following?

Ganymede has been not-so-notably absent from the glitter-mania of the Bar of late; he dislikes glitter on him, it being absolute hell to get off in the wash, from clothes and skin.

But today he's sitting in the bar at a table with a mirror--not to look at himself per se, but to learn a particular braid. It's five strands, which he can do with string in front of him just fine, but easier said than done upside-down and backwards on his own head. As soon as he's done with one, he unplaits it and begins another. Who knew having almost waist-length hair was such a hassle?

He's attempting to stay clear of anything sparkly, though how well he does may vary.

 Selina woke up in the room she stayed in--thank you Jay for the permanent reservation--after talking with Cassian and feels awful. Tired, achy, irritated sinuses, scratchy throat...the works.

Now she's downstairs by the fire fish with a giant mug of hot chocolate. Wrapped in a blankey, she just kind of stares off until a sneeze hits her, sending a cloud of purple glitter into a tissue she raises to try and catch it.

"Damnit!" She has half a mind to go home and see if she can get Bruce sick with this, just because.

If Cassidy has spoken to your pup and told them that he's a vampire but doesn't have fangs, he lied. This is what happens when you play someone from ongoing canon! Details get changed along the way. And it's annoying! But at least lying about it is still within character. My headcanon now is that he casually lied about it because he doesn't want to be seen as a stereotypical vampire, and possibly didn't want to scare anyone away or freak anyone out. So he'll continue to lie about it. I think his fangs only come out with true bloodlust or the desire to turn someone, neither of which he really feels at this point in canon. He's learned to suppress those urges.

Anyway, jsyk. Carry on.
