  1. I'm only playng two active characters at DM both of them 'new'. I'd have brought Mat/Cari back BUT she killed her self to keep her family safe, so it's not possible.
  2. HOLY CRAP! Hey Hun! I have none of my old characters still alive. Well Aiden doesn't count he was like 5 or 10 when he was last played lol. But he's around now... Cari/Mat's offspring (one of 4)
  3. She was at least talking to them again. And Nox wondered why she got stuck with this job, she obviously didn't like men who could channel. "I have an observation I'd like to share. Don't take no offense please, but I don't think you like us much. Is it us in particular? Or just Asha'man?" His curiousity getting the best of him before he could stop his words. But he didn't wait for an answer they were at the wall and they had a job to do, so Nox walked up to the stone wall and sent earth with a touch of spirit and delved at the wall for cracks. Nox found several fishers that
  4. Aiden's freezing comment made Nox chuckle. "Nothing like that. It's not a dumb question. My guess from the look on his face she made him a very happy man. And I say she, it very well could have been a man, but I don't think so. Why kill this man? As far as I could tell he was nothing special. No more so than you or I. Not a politician, there was no gain in it." That was where things started to deviate from his Atharim training. He'd always wanted to know the why of things. Why did a person turn rogue, why show themselves now? In this case why kill him? It wasn't likely t
  5. She showed back up just after their stew arrived. Nox wasn't really hungry but he felt Mer's and ate anyway. Though she wanted to know their theories? Nox chuckled. "I don't know why you think I am here. I don't specialize in earth, I make holes in the pattern and that's it. I can I mean, but my talents are spent more on the ripping holes in the pattern than making things stronger." Nox sipped at his spoon full of broth. Sometimes he wondered if he should give up meat in general. The idea of sheep being slaughtered, cows, and the like was bothering him. Maybe because of wha
  6. The closeness was nice. He hadn't intended for romance, but he kept himself open with the power. Grasping the power through the sludge was still no easier. The pain he'd imagined each time lessened, the Ijiraq hadn't been sighted in months and he was sure it wasn't around him. He wasn't a threat - the Ijiraq's had only been sent before. And they were gone now. Nox smirked, "Just don't wave fire around unless absolutely necessary." Nox pushed his shoulder into Aiden's with a broader grin. "So this case is not like others. A guy is dead sitting upright like he was talking with
  7. Nox shook his head. "No machines. No one can tell a man is wielding the power except another man who can wield the power. A man can sense a woman by a cold shiver. But that is the extent of it. We can't see it on video - we tried." Nox and Aria had tried. Sage had tried too. But there was nothing visible on the camera even though Nox knew he'd been using the power. There might be scientific ways of doing so but Nox was confident that the Atharim didn't have those tools otherwise they'd already be widely used. That was the power of the Atharim. But he let it go at that. He didn't wan
  8. It was a fight to stay away from the spiraling, but Mer was there. It was good to have him in the back of his head, always there. He gave Mer a shy smile. "I'm alright." Mer knew fully well he wasn't. But he could pretend for a while longer. They were virtually alone in the big room. Not psychically of course, there were people near by. People talking, clanking of utensils against plates, scuffing of benches against the floor, the odd creak of a table. They weren't alone, but no one was bothering them. Their table was just the two of them, and if you could get past all staring it was
  9. I'm still lurking. I owe a post but I'll get to it soon.
  10. Nox focused on his breathing. And on the words his love spoke. They were not calming, but Mer was concerned none-the-less and not just for him. The woman was on his mind as well. Nox gave Mer a soft smile. "We should stay here. If I was midst panic attack I wouldn't appreciate any number of strangers to follow. It would only make things worse. As for me..." Nox looked up and smiled, "I will be okay as long as I have you to keep me anchored." Nox grinned and tapped his temple. "This is a constant reminder I'm not alone." That was part of it, the other part was Nox didn't want
  11. That didn't go well. Nox watched as she started having an attack. The signs were easy to recognize specially since he'd see the look in his own eyes many many times. She left and Nox was immediately on his feet. He wasn't sure whether or not he should follow. What would someone else do if he was having an attack? How would he feel if a stranger followed him? He knew the answer and sat back down with a sigh. "Is that what it looks like for me?" Nox was his own head case, he knew it. And the taint, now gone but still it had affected him, only made it worse. His anxiety and p
  12. She didn't trust them. Nox was used to that. Not many people trusted them. And very few actually trusted him any - except maybe Mer. And others at the black tower. Nox smiled at her. "We can use the One Power to search for cracks, and mend the walls with earth." That was the theory of it anyway. "We can build new walls and buildings with the One Power too. It's how we train the Soldiers to use earth. One of our first assignments is to build our own home." Mer hadn't, mostly because Nox hadn't taught him how. But he had done other earth creations. Most notably moving stones
  13. Nox smirked as Aiden was overwhelmed with the knowledge of Li Tan's secret affiliations. He added just as casually, "The Ascendancy was once one of us as well. He bears the mark of all Atharim." But it was Aria's prophetic vision that had clarified that to her and he knew because the had shared no secrets then. But that wasn't the case in the end. Aiden was eager to learn - almost too eager. But Nox could indulge him, he remembered being new and naive about what it meant. It took many times blowing himself up before he heeded Aurora's warnings. Breakfast was done an
  14. Aiden was eager to learn. Nox supposed he was too, he and Aurora had spent a year alone in the wilderness learning - mostly trying not to blow himself up. Nox didn't suppose that was Aiden's thing. He smiled at the thought of a school. "Li Tan. You know the actor, he was Atharim - apparently. He's starting a school of sorts. We could check that out." Nox had seen the adverts on the billboards as he walked through the city. It touted a school of the mystic arts, and it showed Li doing fanciful things as well as killing monsters. Nox had been meaning to check it out. He needed a new plac
  15. Babe? Nox smiled and turned back to Aiden. "I'm fine." Nox wove a fireball above his hand between himself and Aiden. "Splitting flows as many times as I'm doing it a lot of work. Almost as much work as really great sex." Nox winked at Aiden and let the fire above his hand wink out. The food was done and Nox separated the food on to top plates and let the weaves go. "It's not a physical workout but it's physically tiring." Nox stood up and handed Aiden a plate. "You mentioned the message boards Rowan's using." Nox smiled around his fork and and finished chewing before. "I d
  16. Nox grinned at the thought of another round and it would be enjoyable, but it wasn't like it wasn't going to happen again. He needed to stretch and do his thing or everything would be out of wack. Sleep was important, but so was everything else. Nox stood up, the sheet falling in a heap on top of Aiden. He reached his hand to the ceiling the other arm didn't reach as high for obvious reasons but the movement itself had done it's job. "Sleep brings nightmares and unless a promised dreamless sleep is offered, I won't see my sister die again, or watch the light go out of Aria's e
  17. It was nice having Aiden in his bed. Though the mood broke a little when he teased about not doing it sooner. There were reasons, and those reasons still existed. But ... There was no but, what happens happened and he wasn't ashamed, nor was he upset. And Sage would lilkely understand - he hoped. Thankfully Aiden changed to subject to sleep. Nox grinned, "I've never slept well." Nox commented quickly hoping to leave it at that. The tenderness of the kiss sent shivers down his spine and other more intimate things. But the words alone would have brought a smile to Nox's lips. "I'm
  18. Aiden was respectfully chargained and he offered to deal with the problem at hand. They'd have to wait and see but Nox didn't think they'd make any trouble. They could channel too and most people wanted to keep that under wraps. But there was no proof any of them did anything. That was one of the problems with channeler crimes. You couldn't prove that someone did something with it - there was no photo evidence and it could be anyone doing it. There were only witness accounts. But with Aiden waggling his eyebrows at him Nox couldn't think of much else than getting a famous rock star up in
  19. Nox blinked at the abrupt nature of their greeting. He was used to hostility in the Black Tower, but most people saw the black coat and were scared. This wasn't scared, this was something else. Though fear makes you do stupid thing. Nox grinned at Mer and squeezed his hand. This was his show, but Nox couldn't let it be. This woman didn't know him. Knew nothing of his past or how he had gotten here, and there was no reason to be angry at them They were just following orders just like she was. Nox tugged at Mer and they followed, catching up to their guide. "Breakfast sounds w
  20. Nox was highly annoyed at Aiden's display. He was sure it was written all over his face. This could have been handled without hurting someone. Now there was likely a lawsuit on hand, burning a guy yeah real great work. Nox nodded to the bar tender and he called the cops. Nox didn't want to answer Aiden for fear of chewing him out in front of the pricks he'd taken care of. Instead Nox wrapped his own weave of air around the men and gave them a friendly smile. "Let's wait outside so the rest of our guests can enjoy the show that's just about to start" Nox didn't give them a ch
  21. Nox really hated assholes. But he gave the man a smile and was about to ask him to leave again polietly but Aiden came up in an illusion. The menacing power had been a warning to him. He'd apparently learned a trick or two from Jaxen. Nox thought about it and he could probably hold the illusion too but it really wasn't worth it. But it might make a good show. He'd think about it later. Right now another menacing presence erupted in front of him. The strength wasn't great in the man in front of him, and it was always harder to shield a man from the source of his power when h
  22. So I'm editing my novel. And in order to keep the scene, I need to be able to define the elements of a scene/sequel pairing otherwise it's trashed. This particular scene could be cut, but the facts involved in the scene establish a little bit about Nox's ability that you really can't see otherwise. Nox has just been informed that he's going to be Valedictorian of his class and he needs to give a speech. Which he doesn't want to do because the rest of his classmates would make it epically horrible and he wants to avoid it at all costs, so his plan is to fail the remainder of his
  23. Nox felt that menacing presence spring up around him. He knew Aiden was singing or since he obviously wasn't doing much else other than watching things. Candy's show was done and she had exited stage right and the next was gearing up. The music had changed and Nox wished he could actually be up on stage. He'd picked the music, done the choreography and had danced it all before losing his arm. But the show had been eventful and there were girls who could do what he did to make it all fanciful. The lighting wasn't the same, the girl hadn't figured it all out and Nox was no help in that mat
  24. that always is a bummer.... either too many or none...
  25. Aiden's around. I'm just not heavily active with him at the moment. Aiden would taken on a WTer if no one else wants to do it.
