Event Log: Assassin

Who: Everyone!
What: The Assassin event
Where: Throughout the city
When: April 15th-23rd
Warnings: Inevitable character death, potential horror and gore and unpleasantness. Please remember to tag for warnings in the header if it things get too bad!

The morning of April 15th in Hadriel is cheerful, with artificial light streaming through your window. Your blankets are warm, jabberjays are shrieking, and you're probably going to experience a murder attempt today.

Maybe it'll be from a stranger, maybe it'll be from a friend, but the bottom line is that everybody is after somebody and nobody is safe (...okay, twelve people are safe, but that's beside the point). Time will only tell when you'll be overcome by that murderous rage and try to kill someone else. The best thing you can probably do at this point is stay calm, keep your head high, and try not to die for the next eight days.

Helpfully, Rage will have restocked her armory for the event, for those of you have yet to arm themselves. Additionally, for a limited time only, the armory will be stocked with bear traps, tripwire (in both 'general wire' and 'barbed wire' flavor), and voice recorders. Use all of them, use none of them, just get on out there and kill each other!

Oh, and one last thing...

[Arya isn't the only hooded figure wandering Hadriel as of late.

[Rey's hood covers her head of short hair as she makes her way through the streets, not allowing her emotions to dictate her patrol schedule. Her rather successful endeavor has her feeling nothing much at all as of late. Feelings are a necessary sacrifice if it means not murdering a teenage girl.

[That's when she recognizes the shape of Arya Stark as she passes by. Once again, she is not haunted by the rage upon seeing the child, leaving Rey to assume pretty fast that her target is specific to the one teenager she saw the other day.

[She stops, turning around to face the girl. Her head lifts to reveal her own scarred face behind the hood attached to her armor.]

You sure you should be outside? [Her words are unwavering when she speaks, like a machine.]

[ Arya is not one to flinch away from mysterious, hooded figures with scarred faces. Not after she's spent weeks traveling with the Hound -- that's as scarred as a person gets.

So Arya stands firm, not wavering but not attacking either, asserting that she's got every right to be here, letting the other woman know she is unafraid. ]

Quite sure.

[ Arya frowns, disliking the implication -- that she is too small, that it is not safe for her here. ]

The houses are little protection, and besides, I am used to protecting myself outside.

Do you think your patrol really does anything? Do you actually think you are keeping people safe?
circumitus: 'Cause it makes him feel like a fish. (says he likes to get high and swim)

[People here seem less put off by her scars than many civilians back home. It's an interesting change of pace, but not something she balks at with Arya. The girl seems like she's seen some shit.]

Apologies. Did not mean to offend or be condescending.

[Considering this is the same child who offered sword lessons not too long ago, she doesn't doubt Arya's capabilities.]

As for keeping people safe... Am not certain. Was not made to protect. [Not deliberately, in any case, though one could argue that some of her past actions had protected someone in some underhanded way.]

To be honest, been doing this more for selfish reasons than for other people.

[personal profile] whichend 2016-04-26 09:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Arya nods, accepting Rey's apology. There's no use getting in a huff, not with the situation at hand. ]

That does not mean anything. I was not supposed to do anything but learn how to be a good lady and a good wife. And now I am neither of things, and that is why I am still alive.

[ Selfish reasons are fair enough. Selfishness keeps people alive. She thinks of Gendry, of his decision to leave her. It was the smart one. The selfish one. ]

I understand.
circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-04-28 03:23 pm (UTC)(link)
A fair point.

[It's good enough, and not even Rey can argue with that. There are many things that she was supposed to be, but isn't any more. Weapon. Soldier. Murderer. Definitely not a living, breathing person with her own sense of self, no individuality. And yet...

[She nods.]

Are you looking for anyone in particular? [Someone to kill, perhaps?]

[personal profile] whichend 2016-05-01 12:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I am running.

[ It pains Arya to admit that, but it's the truth. She knows there's someone out to get her, and right now, Arya cares about her safety more than the fate of her target. She doesn't know who she's supposed to be killing yet, but she figures once she does, that person will be good as dead. ]

Are you looking for someone?
circumitus: Captain Morgan didnt let me down when i stand up it feels like the world is trying to hand me rainbows. (i hate your face)

[Rey doesn't need to ask what it is Arya is running from. She already knows the answer, and she nods, understanding.

[At the girl's question, she just shakes her head.]

More like something. A... distraction.

[Anything to keep her murderous urges stifled.]

[personal profile] whichend 2016-05-10 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
[ Arya nods, thinking. What would be a good distraction? Especially from these urges? Arya is consumed by a need for revenge on a normal day. She doesn't need this. ]

What if -- what if we fight each other? We are both capable, and we are not the targets of the other. It might make us less of a danger for the others.

[ Arya knows she's a danger. She figures Rey is painfully aware, too. ]
