Place holder 2-After asking around (with unnecessary violence, Renata notes) the three ascertain that Thoth is probably somewhere near Hades’ Palace. Once they reach it, Renata says since she’s actually met Thoth, she’ll go in and look for him alone. Brittany agrees, and seeing this, Schiryah stalks off in irritation. Brittany starts to try and bring him back, but Renata stops her.
-The succubus tells her that she misplaced her pass for the underworld, so if she gets caught, she could be severely punished. Without being asked, Brittany immediately produces her own pass, and gives it to Renata. Renata promises to return it to Brittany when she gets back from the palace, and so heads inside.
-After wandering aimlessly through the palace’s dark corridors, surprised by the lack of guard in the building, Renata hears two people talking. She makes it towards a massive room that has one of its doors open just enough for her to look through. Inside, she sees Thoth and Osiris discussi
Place holder 1-Renata and Aurel see rainclouds in the distance, and Renata decides to leave the path to see where the rain is falling, and so go towards the Asphodel Slums.
-It's a blood rain, but they only realize that once they get nearer. Disconcerted, Renata's first instinct is to run, but she gets accosted by a resident demanding to know how to get back 'home'. Startled, she tries to get away, Aurel coming to her aid, but the commotion draws other residents and starts a small riot.
-Aurel shoves Renata out of the fray so she doesn't get trampled
-Renata's first panicked reaction is to try to pull the residents off of Aurel, but she gets knocked sideways and into the decrepit door of a building. As she tries to pull herself up, she notices smoke, and realizes there's a fire building inside it. Because of how she died, she loses her head and immediately sprints away from the slums. As she leaves, Aurel yells at her, "Call Aurelius and--" though she doesn't hear the rest of it, and she's too frigh
MOKO Round 2 part 1Renata was tired. It was a deep, aching weariness that pushed into her all the way to her marrow, like what one felt before the onset of a great illness—and yet, she didn’t sleep.
For peace of mind, she had told herself more than once that it was Hades that was the cause of her insomnia. If in death life’s necessities were absent, it only made sense for its comforts to be gone as well. It was only a matter of time before that theory was disproven, however, as in the back of her mind she began to feel the anxious niggling of fatigue.
With her body lying prone in the tall, pale brush of the Asphodel Fields, head resting on the field's beaten down path and hair spun beneath her so that her arms didn’t touch the ground, the succubus tried to sleep. She tried to close her eyes for more than a moment at a time. She tried to get some rest. The succubus squeezed her eyelids shut, and pushed her head into the make-shift pillow of her arms, trying to force herself into u
