Cast: Mikhail Bakunin, Freddy Nietzsche
Rating: As the LJ cut would indicate, there is some language here and there.
Time: Some point this weekend.
Summary: Bakunin checks in on Freddy and discovers there are some quasi-amnesiac problems there, but that's maybe even the least of his friend's issues.

Fuck. FUCK.Collapse )

How high is Freddy Nietzsche today? Technically not at all. The kid just has to be an iconoclast even about his rebellious activities; he's expressed to his smattering of friends on multiple occasions that 4/20 makes no sense for the day to smoke up. What with Columbine, Hitler's day of birth, and all that shit... he's carved on the wall with exacto knife, leaving the subsequent clause unwritten.

But with that in mind, there's no telling what's flooded his system now.

Freddy hasn't shaved in weeks, and to look at how thin he's become, one might guess he's been subsisting on a bag of chips here and there, and mostly beer. Seated on the floor of his one-room apartment, he shoots a glance at his answering machine. Five messages, all from the hospital, wanting to see him again; he's not interested in calling back.

Zarathustra, Avraham, Moshe, Siddhārtha Gautama, Krishna, Yeshua, Muḥammad, the Bab, Bahá'u'lláh. Wie man wird, was man ist. Hypergraphia took him over at some point, he's not sure when. On the top of every piece of paper that lies next to him is this cryptic mantra, and then text, continuations of text. It isn't poetry, but a series of thoughts feverishly articulated, half in English and half in German, more German than he actually knows.

On the top of the next page he writes this again, but after Bahá'u'lláh, he adds ellipses, then a question mark. "Zzzzzz," he sounds under his breath, ruminating over the feel of the buzz on his tongue. "Zzzzzoro... aster... Zorro." Cracking up, he pencils ZORRO next to the question mark. ZORRO IS NEXT EL OH EL. Men in black! Darth motherfucking vaderr.

Freddy lights a normal cigarette. He can't tell when migraines are coming and going anymore. The aura is always there, the glow at the edges of his vision. At some point he picks up his phone and calls someone. "Bakunin," he tells the voicemail in a monotone, even though he can't remember who that is. "Hey motherfucker. Who are you and why are you in my address book? I'm being abducted by fucking Raëlians, come save me."

He almost calls Lou, but he remembers who that is, and in remembering, he looks over his shoulder at the bearded man in the corner, turbaned and seated in a lotus position, meditating but breaking away from the activity to shoot a daring glare in Freddy's direction.

Who: Lucy Montgomery and Christopher Marlowe.
When: First block today.
Where: In the hallway outside Lucy's chemistry class.
What: An encounter.
Rated: G.

Hi.Collapse )
19 April 2007 @ 11:40 pm
Who: Simone de Beauvoir and John Starre
When: Today, first block
Where: CALM, and then the library
What: Simone and John start talking in class, then come up with an excuse to go to the library so they can talk more. Philosophy is argued, reading lists are given, and they generally brain at each other.
Rated: PG-13, if anything, for language.

But it's not an immediate problem unless inflamed. You know?Collapse )
18 April 2007 @ 04:20 pm
Cast: Victor Hugo, Chrissy Rossetti
Rating: PG-13 but more for what's talked about than what actually happens.
Time: Friday 6 April— yeah, a while ago. The day right before Emily's disappearance.
Summary: Responding to the message Chrissy left him, Victor gets to the hospital in Boston and finds out about three of the worst things she could possibly be dealing with right now: a family tragedy, a health problem, and something that's oddly a mixture of both.

All too old to be ourselves. Feel.Collapse )
18 April 2007 @ 05:24 am
Who: Sappheire Scamandros and George Byron
When: Tuesday afternoon
Where: The Round Table
What: Gift exchange
Rating: G. Will wonders never cease?

Summary: They say to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, but Sappho's seem relatively innocuous so far.

I cannot help it, my lady. I am a mannerless rogue.Collapse )

Who: Benny and Joon Sammie Coleridge and George Byron
When: Monday evening
Where: nearest hospital to Icaria
Rated: G, miraculously enough
Summary: Sammie wrecks Byron's car and manages to land herself in the hospital doing so. Byron worries. A lot. Poor sod.

I'll be just bad enough to keep up my questionable charm.Collapse )
Who: Bill, Emilie
When: Tuesday of Spring Break
Summary: Before Bill flies off for warmer climes (which is initially discussed in a log that I've lost and I reverently hope Eliza still has), he stops by the Round Table for some coffee, and runs into someone he hasn't talked to in months. Both parties equally chagrinned, steps are made toward rectifying a friendship that should have been. There may be some playful flirting involved as well, but again, this is Bill and Emilie we're talking about, so no one's surprised.

It's a bit like some calm before the storm that awaits them when they get back from Spring Break...Collapse )
10 April 2007 @ 05:56 pm
Cast: Freddy Nietzsche, Lou Salomé
Rating: T for Tense.
Time: A week ago, shortly following Freddy's personal freakout moment.
Summary: As per Freddy's e-mail request, Lou comes to see him at his apartment and gets a taste of what's suddenly going on, though predictably it's not easy for them to talk. Somehow enough is coherently expressed that Lou convinces Freddy to go to the hospital with her.

Lou, I don't know how to explain this shit.Collapse )
10 April 2007 @ 12:21 am
Summary: Once again, a few weeks late. This happens... quite a while ago. Like two weeks ago. So anyway, uh, Mikhail meets Gytha's cross-Atlantic friends and then gives her some good news. Rated PG-13.

There's an excellent fish and chips stand down the way.Collapse )
