The Mansion sits in silence, everything inside it coated in a heavy layer of dust. It's waiting. It's plotting. It had reluctantly released its captives for a while -- back to their native books lands -- but that was only to lull them into a false sense of security. Now it's back with a renewed sense of mischief.

With a heavy (almost thoughtful) pause, there's a "POP" and one sharp-looking demon suddenly appears in one of the main rooms. He pauses, mid-cigarette.

"Aziraphale? Aziraphale! I didn't mean to superglue that cat to the--" He stops mid-sentence and glances around. He's wearing very stylish sunglasses, but if you were to take them off, his eyes would be currently widening in recognition. "Oh shit. Oh he-- go-- bugger it all for--"

There's another pause, as he can't seem to complete sentences, but his bewilderment and dismay slowly saunters vaguely downwards and turns into a smirk. "Well," he says, "might as well, since we're here."

Crackplot: all of the couches in the room are demon-modded.

  • The red one makes your character think that they are in the happiest moment of their life as they sit on it.
  • The blue one makes them believe that they are in the saddest.
  • The green one turns your character into the opposite gender (or genderless, or whatever you would like, for characters who don't have a set gender).
  • The yellow one gives your character the inverse of their current personality.

    The rest of the couches are safe. Maybe. Possibly. Your puppet can also feel free to ignore all of the couches and just interact regularly. This has all been courtesy of Anthony J Crowley. Enjoy!

    Typist: WOW, HELLO, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I TYPED DOWN HERE. It's DF reunion times! Feel free to send any and all old DF puppets into this post and have them interact with each other. Just for unity's sake, we'll have the form of commenting be "[statement/whatever they're saying] *ACTION*" as we did in the past.

    Feel free to continue the threads as looooong as you like.

    Also, come join us in #desperatefansooc! There's already a party going on! I'll be there until the wee hours of the morning, at least. Yay!

    He's been sitting on the sofa all evening, he sometimes comes here to think. Thankfully before the mansion decided to release people he had left to live in a house outside its domain. He's not expecting anything, really, just a few moments to himself, but he'd welcome conversation from any passerby.

    Lestat get bored sitting on the sofa, eventually scanning the room when his eyes fall on a familiar face. He almost smiles, then remembers who he's looking at. Still his eyes stay locked where they are.

    Well. The decor, I fear, has not improved with age. I fear for the state of the residents.

Really, isn't that a little petty, even for you? *the angel has followed shortly after Crowley, with a sort of pop-entrance of his own - although, if it's possible for a popping sound and sudden manifestation to be dainty, his is - and now stands, looking ruffled and irritated, nearby*

    Javert was never known to be a late man, but here he was, late. Or was it fashionably late?

    The black leather gloves are not removed, nor is his heavy, charcoal grey, woolen great coat. When he enters the Mansion it's done quietly, as though he wanted to remain unnoticed.

    But there he stands, as he had once before - many times before - surveying each occupant.

    How time flies.

    *and seated somewhat gingerly on a couch (that fortunately appears to be perfectly ordinary) is Gabriel, who looks tired but rather pleased with himself -- because small children will wear out even angels, and that is exactly what he's carrying in his arms as he sits down; specifically, a small and delicate-featured toddler of nearly two years, with a lot of very tufty dark hair and her "mother's" vividly blue eyes*

    *after glancing around to make sure there's no immediate danger, he'll set the child down (where she'll promptly crawl a few feet away in order to start happily mauling her pacifier), then lean back into that couch in order to properly relax (something he doesn't get to do so terribly often now, not that he's complaining)*
