Dog reclined on the bed, hands clasped behind his head, as he enjoyed a fight on the hotel's PPV. A pile of discarded room service plates and remnants of what had been a well-stocked minibar lay in the corner. The feral mutant had no idea who the fighters were, and didn't care; he simply enjoyed the state-sanctioned violence as he allowed himself to relax. It wasn't every weekend that one had a good weekend in Vegas, after all.

He'd struck it big, in the casinos. Had watched some lucky schmuck bring in a good haul from roulette table, and had traced his scent back to his room. A deft swipe of his claws made short work of the deadbolt. He pulled the door shut behind him as he left, making sure to hang the "do not disturb" sign on the knob. More likely than not, no one would even figure out the guy was dead until the smell started to seep into the hallway. He'd then sauntered across town and gotten himself a room. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, after all.

@alpha_dog: I like these little glimpses into Dog's day to day life. Comic books and CV are filled with murderous villains but we rarely see how they live day-to-day. How do they eat, where do they sleep and how do they travel? Little stuff like that does a lot to bring Dog to life to me, especially because it ties into the Shadow Knight's motivation for wanting to stop him; he's a walking murder factory. He will kill anyone at any time and nobody in the world is safe from him.

Hawkshade had begun to track suspicious murders by news reports of gristly crime scenes. There were more than he anticipated. He built an interactive map using data downloaded from google maps and kept it up to date with murders he suspected were the work of Alpha Dog.

He searched for patterns in the chaos Dog left in his wake. There was a pattern, he was sure of it.

When he found it he could find Dog.

They were almost ready.

AMA, the Mistress of Magic, was doing another private show. Once again the only invitation was 'A' posted on her social media accounts and her loyal fans once again had to decipher where the magic was going down. The abandoned building was jam-packed by the time the show began, and for an abandoned building it had great lighting and sound traveled with ease from the elevated stage, so no one, not even those being shoved into the wall would have to worry about not being a part of the experience. Whether this was all because of Ama was unclear to the audience.

No Caption Provided

Smoke began to surround the building and before it disappeared there she stood, followed by a loud uproar of pleased fans that they had found the right spot and there she stood in front of them ready to perform. The music began to die down, and Ama took one last glance at the crowd, noticing a couple of figures that stood out, ones who didn't seem to be there for the show, but looked as though they were on edge.

I wanna rp with you ^_^

Lol, but really, I'm gonna put our Zach and Jessica interaction on hold until I can get a better grip of writing as him, I don't want to ruin a potentially good RP because my character wasn't ready for it, if that makes sense.

@ama:

LAS VEGAS! You know the saying, ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’? Well Lyn sure as hell hoped this was going to apply to this too! She came to Vegas to have fun, and what was more fun than painting the city red with the blood of the man who tried to steal money in poker!? It was his own fault! Cheating with cards that were up his sleeve. So what did she do? SHE CUT HIS OFF ARM OFF AND SLAPPED HIM WITH IT! Apparently that’s frowned upon because now Lyn was busy running through the city with the police after her.

She managed to slip through the crowd of people on the sidewalk and somehow made her way to some abandoned buildings away from the main strip of Las Vegas. There was a group of people seeming to migrate to one particular building, and what better way to get away from the po-po than to follow a crowd of people into an abandon building!? Only she didn’t use the same entrance as everyone else, oh no, she slipped in to what she assumed was the back.

No Caption Provided

But then smoke filled the building! She couldn’t see! She kept walking, coughing and waving the arm (she now called ‘Bob’) around trying to clear the smoke. The smoke cleared, but Lyn wasn’t paying attention to where she was walking and accidentally walked onto the sage with a woman who looked super duper familiar. In fact, she looked a lot like that one magician that she used to follow on Instagram! What was her name? Mam? Ana? Aaaaaba? But she also looked like that one chick who summoned that rock man!

Realizing she had just crashed someone magic show and Lyn, being the great improviser she was, threw her hands (and Bob) in above her head and struck a pose. “Ta-da!” She shouted, still standing behind the performer.

@noah_grayson:

Unfortunately, Paragon is missing. Has been for a month. Already got people searching for her so as soon as she is found, we'll have that RP. ^_^

NP, thanks for the heads up. That does make a lot of sense. Might I suggest the Random Interactions as Zach? That might help get you to have a better handle on him as a character. Then, when your ready, you can post a response to me and we can continue. In the meantime, take as long as you want. ^_^

@laughlyn: As Ama was paying attention to the men who stood out in the crowd, she hadn't noticed right beside her was someone else who stood out somewhat. She had seen her before, but where? Ama couldn't put her finger on it. She didn't want to scare the audience members or worse do something to put them in danger, so when the somewhat familiar lady threw up her arms as well as the limb that wasn't hers, and yelled "Tada!" Ama rolled with it.

She continued the show in hopes to give her time how to make sure everyone who attended got out safe.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS, CREATURES OF ALL AGES. I AM THE MISTRESS OF MAGIC, AND TODAY WE HAVE A SPECIAL GUEST, THIS LADY TO THE SIDE OF ME WE'LL BE ASSISTING ME ON THIS SHOW. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO THE AUDIENCE.

Ama's voice boomed throughout the abandoned building and so would Lyn's as she spoke to the crowd. If the mystery lady revealed herself to the audience participating in the show, Ama would release a small spell of fireworks above them with their names or alias.

The Mistress of Magic hoped that she would play along, and given her entrance it didn't seem like she was exactly shy of performing.

Laughlyn’s smile stretched across her face with excitement! OH MY GOSH WAS SHE ABOUT TO BE PART OF A MAGIC TRICK!? She gave a little hop of excitement. “MY NAME IS LAUGHLYN!” she shouted as she extended her arms (including Bob) to the audience as a suddenly fireworks writing in their names appeared above them. “OH WOW!’ Lyn clapped her free hand against the limp limb, completely impressed. This was AMAZING!

“TODAY SHE WILL BE SAWING ME IN HALF... WITHOUT A BOX!!” she volunteered herself for a trick that no typical magician (who wasn’t insane) would even try to attempt. Yet here she was, not really trying to hijack the Mistress of Magic’s show but still proclaiming that she would be sawing Lyn in half in front of the live audience.

The audience's eyes were wide with curiosity as some gave excited shouts and others gasped, wondering how Ama was going to pull off this trick.

@laughlyn: "My Name is Laughlyn!" The energetic surprise guest proclaimed. Lighting fireworks behind them just as Ama had hoped for. It actually caught Laughlyn's attention and by the smile on her face she was enjoying herself just as much as the audience was.

Just as Ama was about to speak to move on to a simple yet effective card trick to keep the uninvited partner's attention, it seemed Laughlyn had other plans. “TODAY SHE WILL BE SAWING ME IN HALF... WITHOUT A BOX!!” AMA couldn't believe Laughlyn had gone 0 to 100 real quick there was no build up, no style, nothing, straight to what most magicians wouldn't dare attempt and others certainly not as their first act. But Ama welcomed the challenge, there was no visual cues or giveaways from her facial/body language that said otherwise.

"You heard that right! I will now saw this blonde bombshell in half. Without a box!" The audience were whispering back and forth at each other, others were speechless. AMA turned and smiled at Laughlyn before bowing in front of her and moving her arms towards the center of the stage as to ask her to move to that part for the act to begin.

Once Laughlyn was in the center of stage, Ama would softly place her arms on her partner's shoulders and then move them down slowly to Laughlyn's own hands. It was sort of to build suspense but also helped Ama know what she was dealing with when it came to Laughlyn.

AMA would then kindly without actually speaking ask that laughlyn give up bob the limp arm for the time being. Another moment to see if her partner was actually into the show. The mistress of magic dared not separate the arm from it's now owner by great lengths no, in fact she was just taking it off her exact body before hoisting in the air at shoulder level to the side of them and moving her hands from underneath while the limp arm stayed levitating. A small teaser for the crowd to ooh and ahhhhhh if laughlyn did indeed give away her new limb.

Whether she did or not, would stop Amaterasu from performing the actual act of removing Laughlyn's lower body from her upper body.

AMA began speaking an incantation as smoke filled the stage at ankle level. The words getting louder and softer before she would completely stop abruptly. Was it necessary? No, but it was about showmanship. Was AMA going to actually remove Laughlyn's torso from her lower half? No, but she was going to make damn sure the audience and her guest believe she did. The incantation was illusion magic to its finest. Simultaneously she was cloning Laughlyn's lower half and with Laughlyn's belief in the act her lower half would feel as the clone half did and vise versa, but the mistress of magic hadn't yet begun to show the clone version oh no, not until she acted as though she sawed through her partner.

AMA made a fake saw appear out of thin air before fake digging into her assistant. There would be no blood, no pain, and no agony. AMA would step in front of laughlyn enchanting her own strength to pick of laughlyn and move her body from the center and as she did laughlyn's real legs would become invisible while the clone legs would appear almost exactly where she once stood. Even if you stared intently you wouldn't have even known there was a swap.

So, although laughlyn still had her legs, the audience could not see them, she herself wouldn't be able to see them, and the two sets of legs would feel as the other felt and interact as the other set interacted. It wasn't the simplest act, but if Laughlyn was into the act it would go without a hitch, and telling by her enthusiasm of the whole show, that would most likely be the case.

@ama:

A wide grin was plastered on Lyn’s face as she jumped for joy when the Charmed Matriarch, without hesitation, announced that she was, in fact, going to saw Lyn in half without a box! This was so exciting! How was she going to do it!? Was it going to be painful? Oohhh maybe it would sting! Maybe she’ll get a bruise! OR A SCAR!

A guided Lyn to the center of the stage as the Queen of Slaughter would raise her hands in the air and do a quick spin to show that there was nothing attached to her as she would then feel the Mystical Madam touch her shoulders. Lyn lowered her arms as she felt her hands then slowly trace down her arms in which she took it as a sensual way. “Hey now, better watch your hands or the next trick is me getting a new Bob!” The audience gave a chuckling, assuming it was part of the act.

Then her hands would slowly grasp around Bob and lightly pull at him, asking her to give him up for just a moment. But Lyn was so excited to see how she was about to get cut in half, she willingly let go of the arm. Then… IT BEGAN FLOATING IN MID-AIR! “OH MY GAWD!” Lyn shouted in amazement. “HOW IS SHE DOING THAT!?”

Lyn was mind blown, and they haven’t even gotten to the main trick yet! This was so freaken cool! But then, Ama began speaking in a language that Lyn couldn’t understand. Was she possessed!? BY A DEMON!? HOLY SH!T NOW THERE WAS SMOKE! Lyn’s eyes widen as the audience was in silence.

Then the moment arrived… THE SAW APPEARED FROM NO WHERE! HERE WE GO! She watched as the saw began to sink its teeth into her torso. The audience was silent as Lyn couldnt help it. “AAAHHH! OH GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?” she screamed as if she was in pain as the audience began to gasp in shock only see the clown begin to laugh. “Just kidding!” But then, she was suddenly pulled away from her legs. “OH HOLY SH!T” Lyn exclaimed in shock and excitement as she looked over at her legs that were still standing in place and to the ground she was floating over. “YOU DID IT!” She yelled again.

The audience began to clap, some cheered while some gasp in awe. Lyn began moving her legs as her eyes were glued to them. First she tapped her foot on the ground. Followed by taking a step forward. Then she began to shuffle as her shinies began to light up the foggy ground with a series of different colors. THIS WAS AMAZIN-

“THAT’S FAKE!” a random person from the audience shouted. Laughlyn stopped what she was doing as her head snapped over to the direction of the man who was standing, chuckling to himself.

“Excuse me!?” Laughlyn responded before Ama could, her brows clashing upon one another in anger. THEN HER LEGS RAN FORWARD AS THEY JUMPED OFF THE STAGE AND DROPPED KICKED THE MAN CAUSING HIM TO FALL FLAT ON HIS BACK AND OUT COLD!

Anyone else wanna challenge-?
Anyone else wanna challenge-?

“Anyone else wanna challenge if this is fake?” Lyn’s legs got into a hostile stance as they began walking through the crowd. Some people quickly stepped back while others pulled out their phone. Lyn then turned to Ama. “I gotchu Hocus Pocus.” Lyn gave a playful wink to Ama.

@laughlyn: Ama would have respectfully proved the non-believer wrong with more actions proving what had happened was in fact real (in some way), but before she could even get a word or action in, next thing she knew her surprised guest had sent the dummy legs flying right towards him, dropkicking him and thus knocking the non-believer out cold. Next thing, Ama knew the audience were pulling out their phones. Of course, the spell Ama always put on the area where she performed, masqueraded her face in some way or form. But, she was embarrassed nonetheless.

"I got you Hocus Pocus!" her partner exclaimed. Ama levitated her body off the stage, right next to Laughlyn, "I appreciate it, but can you please rejoin me on stage chuckles?" Ama let out a bright light from her position blinding the phones and audience members before they got a chance to record anything. "I'm sorry guys, but the show has a no flash photography rule, anyone seen breaking the rules would be escorted out. Understood?" Ama's voice was very serious and to her loyal fans, it was understood, and her soft smile afterward was enough to persuade the rest of the audience members.
