Lorel Cassius
On Ladybones Road is a bookshop, but a bookshop with its name long scratched out. The owner? A small weepy man. The small weepy man that is with many regrets currently Soulless, and with it gone he took the name from his shop. Still can make a good cup of tea though...if it wasn't so salty. Tears really aren't a good flavouring for tea.

Rooms above a Bookshop: rooms on three levels above a winding, dusty stair. The owner is melancholy and given to buttonholing you at the door and weeping into your hat. But he does have some interesting customers.

His tenant on the top floor is an L.S. Cassius. An efficacious and potent detective of rather slight stature. On the third story they have set-up an office. A rather respectable office. The waiting area is mostly furnished, but still has space saved off in one corner for a possible surprise piano some day. There is a hatstand, a small piano, a round coffee table, a cheery stone aspidistra, a well-built leather chaise longue, a grandfather clock, two stripy armchairs, and another smaller round side-table with a small bowl of nuts or candy on it.

Then through the 2nd door one may find a small stove with kettle, three filing cabinets, three decent chairs, and a desk that is large, sturdy, respectable, and just maybe; nicely weight-baring.--(I'm picturing something in a heavy dark wood, with engraving of flowers on its legs, maybe with the centres painted a cheery yellow). A blackboard/easel, a small lockable liqueur cabinet, and a bookcase that covers most of one wall.

On the wall facing the desk is a large, framed oil painting by nathan_attford (the actual quote from Twitter follows): "the painting is, in colours brighter than natural to make up for the dimness of 'Neath lighting, a peahen with several chicks pecking about on the ground while a peacock looks on in the background, all under a blue sky with trees and grass" Sitting on the desk is a small, midnight-blue, bat-shaped bowl full of tiny paper flowers, and a glass apple.

One part of that is because DreamWidth doesn't have the Statistics featuresCollapse )

The other factor is I just have no place.Collapse )

[Short sad drabble for n_overstreet for the surprise of offering Lorrie Hesperidean Cider! An AU in if Lorel had come back. Screenshots on {{Tumblr}}.]

---

Nigel Overstreet has offered you a tiny sip of Hesperidean Cider. Splendid!

You took a sip of the Hesperidean Cider Nigel Overstreet (Nigel Overstreet in Fallen London) gave you. It tasted of the Garden and the time before men.
You now have 1 - A Meagre Aftertaste x A Taste of the Garden

A Taste of the Garden 1 - A Meagre Aftertaste The taste still lingers. The smell of earth and grass when you sleep. What will it bring?




---

Cassius sits, no longer Lorel, no longer as pavonine as before. Everything aches in this dreadful, damp place, but it is only flesh & bone. Sinews & organs held onto her slight frame. The invitation surprised her, a welcome surprise of many that weren't. This silly fop, this client that took off before his ridiculous quest's completion, she never expected to see him again. She frowns slightly as she lifts the glass. Before…before she would have been adverse to drinking the fabled Hesperidean Cider. Even though the claims of it were most likely false, immortality was nothing to risk. She'd seen paths it could lead to, where bodies would be hard-pressed to any longer be called human. Rotting corpses, exposed skeletons, only their spirit continuing to animate them. She wouldn't really call it "living". Before she considered that no kind of life for herself, but now she may as well be. Her own will being what continues her on, the duty she still had to complete. Murdering Scathewick was going to be marvellous. And that pledge, and that wish is what animates her own broken body. At least it isn't Venderbight's screecher wards.

It took awhile to process he was referring to her as "Ellis", the name processing over-and-over in her head. She hadn't heard it in so long, and the ridiculousness brings amusement which flickers in her eyes. With a smile resting on the edge of the glass, she inhales--it smells more of orchards in sunshine than any sort of alcohol. Memories of a home she can never return to again until she is truly, truly dead. Her only ever home. It is nice sitting here, and now all this time later she knows the why of Red Honey, the physical thirst to feel memories such as this home smelling cider. Before the nostalgia can turn to regrets she shoots the drink back. Letting all feeling go to the experience.

[Since I'm posting any I do for this on AO3 (and don't quite get how to combine things there), I figured I may as well add them on the original Lorel spot too. For any more that I get and/or do, I'll add to this post. So far I've only gotten 1, and I know this isn't followed by many now, so I may just ask my self some if I have any ideas. I can't guarantee any quality, as I'm really rusty with most things.

This meme is a list of emotions/numbers, where when one is left in Cassius' Tumblr Ask, I'll try to write a drabble for. As shown by the Anger one, these should come with Warnings.

I bought it to play to relieve nerves before surgery, but I ended-up finishing it in 5-ish days D: While playing I kept thinking of my own little red-haired detective. That would be set on vengeance/answers, but would still not be disinclined to helping little girls & Top Pomeranians. Relatedly; for awhile I mused Lorel as a Geist character, with The Lonely Knight. But more related to this post; there are a lot of detectives in Ghost Trick, and a lot of them give "advice" or "tips" about detectives, including one about clues & mysteries are like minerals & vitamins to detectives.]

[Since it seems more unlikely (especially given my laptop difficulties) that I'll finish the 3RD part or work on the 4TH (introduction to Robin), I figure I might as well post this here as well. Around Christmas I started trying to write 2 pages a part (short & manageable!) of Lorel meeting Alfred and what-not. I wanted to get out of my 'Sentence. Sentence. Sentence.' thing that I've fallen into (which annoys me), and just to write something no matter how poor quality I thought it was (I've had other things I've wanted to write, but I can't get into the mindset for it.). But anxiety & the pointlessness feelings are so that I don't feel I have the capacity to write any more.

Originally posted on December 20TH, 2013 @ 10:14PM, January 6TH, 2014 @ 04:14AM, & June 14TH, 2014 @ 02:39PM
This is how Lorel & Alfred met. I have ideas for, and used to think of writing out little adventures they had as partners, but I doubt I ever will. But this part here is about their first meeting. For those that don't know; Alfred is Lorel's spouse that was murdered, and also was her teacher & partner at the inquiry agent office they set-up (L & A). His murder was the reason she started her quest for vengeance, and why she took on the persona of L.S. Cassius & went to The 'Neath/London.]

------------

-----PART #1-----

'Your trousers are wet.'. It was a statement, a completely true but unexpected statement. The young man turned and grinned.Collapse )

-----PART #2-----

After she had sat down, letting the cup warm into her fingers, inhaling the tea's steam, she finally snorted and told her uncle of her evening.Collapse )

-----PART #3 (unfinished)-----

'This is small, so the staff might have to launder items themselves. Larger establishments-or well to do-contract out. Or we are thought foolish.'Collapse )

------------

[Part 3 was going to lead into them exchanging letters and meeting whenever they were in the same area. And part 4 was going to be her meeting Robin and him being so amused at the type of woman his brother 'brought home', and how they formed a little group of detective siblings.

I've also added 2 things to AO3. And edited some Friends Groups to make it feel more safe to enable comments again (if you can't see something with a main account, try a secondary one. I never removed anyone so I know my Protected entries can still be seen).]

[I found this awhile ago in my GMail Drafts, and have been debating posting it. I have fears with posting things here now, so this is taking a lot of courage! I did dig-up the screenshots from when I first got An Annoyance to Jack-of-Smiles at 10. Yes, 10. It took a lot of grinding to build-up that Rare result. And as of March it isn't capped either as I managed to get another few ChangePoints in it. So, yeah, Lorrie has done the Jack business a lot! I've not been happy with my writing for ages, especially the "sentence. sentence. sentence." thing I fall into. I even tried writing-up some of Lorel & Alfred, but I've lost my nerve on more of that for right now. I've also temporarily disabled Comments here due to crushing anxiety. I want to have the capacity to enable them again, but right now I'm sorry. Those that still Follow may also have noticed Tumblring to Twitter too. Anyway, here is a drabble of Cassius fighting a Jack. The date for the first part I sent had "3 April 2013 00:49" for a date/time, and this was typed using my Nintendo 3DS.]

'Darling and lethal as vampire-kitten. Use a long-handled comb.'
"Darling and lethal as vampire-kitten. Use a long-handled comb."

This was quickly drawn for Alexis Kennedy as an attempt at a thank-you. He sent me a
Luxuriantly Coiffed Sorrow-Spider after I e-mailed about my fuck-up of not knowing the Rose-bearing Maggot was only worth 3 Masquing and only if under 25 Masquing total. So thus after over a week of grinding for Gifts of Scorn, purchasing a bunch of Nex on Robin's account, and trying for over a day to draw the Lilac card again, I was 3 Masquing short of the Companion I wanted--Lettice, the Mercy (I got the Canny Costermonger earlier in the week as I was reminded of Lorrie). I had the choice of giving-up, or trading-in the Promissory Note for Intimate Favours I also bought, or waiting to see if Lettice became available another way. Given how horrible this month, and especially this week has been, I had taken the give-up option.

I expected no response to my e-mail, and felt silly for having sent one. But at 9:15PM AST I got:

'A good thing has happened.'Collapse )

-----

Also another thank-you to Gabriel & Jamie for last-minutely sending me the 2 Masquing items I wanted but the Robin's account does not have the Connected for. Mr. Morgan sent me the Glass of Teeth, & Imeja sent me a Key-to-Heart Dagger.

And now have a bandaged Corvus mellori.

High above street level, but not quite as high as The Flit, are various shabby shacks in Spite. It is one of these that L.S. Cassius procured as their Lodgings. It went cheap at 500 rats, but of course the seller had not mentioned that it was infested with rats anyway. When Cassius first came to London they managed to get board with a Widow, but soon they discovered that privacy and independence was greatly needed.

Their Rooftop Shack isn't much, and can be described as 'cozy' on a good day, but it has served them for over a year and looks that it will serve them for the rest of their stay in The 'Neath.

"a Rooftop Shack: draughty and unstable. Good thing there's not much wind in the Neath. But the views are magnificent!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OOC: I am making this an open post of Cassius' Lodgings. For it anyone wants to visit, drop something off, or the like. Just make a comment with whatever day it is in the Subject (so I can keep track) and we can go from there. I made a kinda crappy floorplan of the layout, but I'm not too happy with some of the substitutions I had to make. It is far better that my original sketch though! Their mailbox is an old breadbox by their door. Also there is an around 1/2m cubbyhole type area over the bed/pantry which is kinda visible here, and there is a little ladder to help reach it propped beside the dresser. The pantry & bed area have sliding doors to maximise space. I think I may have made it a bit too big, but I was basing it off our kitchen in size for the whole thing. I could go into the ash privy by the shack below, and I forgot to include the stairs leading to the shack above, but oh well. Cassius' typically uses a nearby bar's halting station though. They also usually bring water in. But yes! Here it is:
 

Now please be respectful and whut-whut! I should also mention that Cassius has 2 rats for room-mates, & a pet bat.
