I've actually filled all Shifter's extra rooms with swords. Walls, tables, you name it. Rack on rack of 'em. I'm considering hanging them on bathroom walls and such, but I do sometimes have guests, and I don't want to be seen as completely psychotic. Nexus unhelpful. Considering knocking on Claire's door, but I'm a bit weirded out by the whole "Read the newspaper" thing. ...Collapse )

I actually have a Nexusy house!

Well, okay, it's an apartment. One-half of the top floor of the building. Shifter set it up for me. Yay Shifter. Apparently it's in a universe full of superheroes, which... *shrug* Not my problem. When Shifter says "you won't be bothered" she means it. And I've got my own Internet connection, my own gate to the Nexus, and my own what Shifter calls a "sneaky extra room" - she installed an extra door in my bedroom wall that leads straight to an absolutely delicious hardwood-floored white-walled display room with beautiful lighting, in which I can hang all my sharp things. *grin* Thanks, Shifter!

((To be clear, this isn't a journal entry of any kind. This is me writing about Alice's past, 'cause I felt like it.))

"What did you just call me?"
I stride towards him, fuming. One hand is on my hip; the other lightly traces Ariadne's hilt over and over. I start to wish I had worn Prometheus today; nothing would give me greater satisfaction than to lop this bastard's head off with a katana.
The drunken lout repeats his insult. Luckily for him, even in the grip of temper I am nothing if not polite. I give him my best cold-eyed glare and come to a halt in front of him, gripping Ariadne in my left hand and waiting for an excuse to draw her.
"Apologise, if you value your life."
I know I'm being too dramatic - later I will curse myself for wasting time on flowery language - but caught in the amber of my own fury I am no longer in control of my words. M. Inebriated Moron laughs, the stink of his breath rolling over me in a putrid wave. He says nothing more.
I draw with my left and transfer her to my right, giving him plenty of time to mark the difference between her straight edge and what I call her "playing edge". Nine curved dips in the blade, each about a third of a circle, line up along that side between the hilt and the angle leading to the tip. The places where circle meets circle come to wicked points. It's a bitch to sharpen, of course, but I've never minded.
Of course the idiot can't appreciate her beauty. His eyes bug out and a liquid mass of foul language and fouler breath slops out of his mouth like a vomitous drool of pungent words.
He seems somewhere between fear and anger as he draws his own knife, a battered dirty thing with a stained handle and rust spots on the blade. Done being polite, I bring up Ariadne before he can fumble his pathetic ill-kept weapon anywhere near me. His friends - there are always friends - are lurching in the background, having just realised that something is amiss.

Random meme. Bold the ones that are true, italicise the ones I wish were true, add one at the end that's true. Why do I like these bloody things so much?
Meme.Collapse )

There should probably be a good reason why Alice named her favourite knife Ariadne. Something memorable and meaningful. However, the plain and simple truth is that Alice simply looked at the knife one day shortly after she got it and decided, 'You're an Ariadne.' No clear rationale for this exists.
There's no good reason for Chianos or Nova, either. And let's not get into the concept of Prometheus, Loki, and Bella. Prometheus is a sword; Bella is a knife; Loki is somewhere in between. Alice just makes up these names as they happen to her.

Right now, Alice has taken Ariadne out to look at her. She does this a lot. She doesn't carry her knives very often, but she keeps them very neat and orderly and she often sets aside time just to admire them.

((Ariadne's blade. Apologies for the file massiveness and the Excalibur-like presentation. When inspiration strikes, I whimper like a dying monkey and obey. Oh, and she's supposed to have her name carved into her near the hilt, but I'm not that good with POV-Ray, so... pretend it's hidden under the water.))
