Event Log: Stepford Summer

Who: Everyone participating in the event
What: The Stepford Summer event!
Where: Across the city
When: July 16th-July 25th
Warnings: None!

Good morning, neighbor!

On the 16th, everyone wakes up feeling a little more... complete. The sun is shining, your bed is nice and comfortable and when you throw off the blankets, your perfect dog (probably named Spot) is sitting eagerly at your feet, waiting to be fed and walked.

The newspaper smacks against your porch and the paper boy calls out in hello as he cycles off further down the road. Sure, you can't actually read the strange symbols on the paper, but it's nice to have the ritual of it in the first place. Your parent or your sibling or your significant other is busy making pancakes in the kitchen when you come in, filling the room with the smell of delicious cooking. Yum!

The rest of the day is much like this. You straighten your tie, adjust your blazer and head off to work at a normal place, doing normal things. So what if you work with a guy who's actually a demon, or a seven foot tall elf? That's normal, isn't it?

There are cracks in the illusion, of course, but whether you're able to put it together is on you. Why would you want to, anyway? You have so many great relatives and an awesome support system, you're drinking awesome coffee every morning, and maybe you'll treat yourself to some ice cream at night before bed. What could be better?

Certainly not the cave. You don't want to remember that, do you?

"She'd want you to be happy," Maketh presses, leaning forward a little. "I have to think -- she would understand."
circumitus: Just remembered. (i woke up in the shower this morning)

Yes, she would, wouldn't she? That's what you're supposed to say about any loving, departed parent. They'd want you to be happy.

Rey falls quiet for a moment, closing her eyes and taking in the feeling of Maketh's touch. Her hands are smaller than Sully's. She doesn't like being close to him like she does with this woman. Doesn't even like him holding her hand like this.

Shit. What's she supposed to do? Call everything off? No explanation given? Sure, she doesn't love the man, but he's been good. Good just isn't enough, somehow.

"I... I'll think about it."

Unfortunately, it's something she's thought too much about already.

Maketh closes her eyes and nods. Then, carefully, she takes her hand back. She can't force this. It's a choice that Rey has to make. And what kind of a monster would she be, if she pushed too hard?

Carefully, she opens her eyes. Smiles. Tries to make her face look professional.

"Of course. It -- it was good to see you, Rey."
