    Rough Summary

    Despondent and destitute, these ousted members of society arrive at The Home to find solace, a cure, a final resting place, or (hopefully) a place to get well. During the day, they attend various well-ness treatments (including group and solo therapy with professional healthcare experts), and in the night...

    Hello, everyone.

    Thank you all for coming here to our first group session. I'd first like to apologize to anyone who may have had trouble fitting this meeting into your schedule. I know for some of us it's still a bit early, but I promise we've taken all necessary precautions to ensure that those of us who need it are completely protected from the sun and other daytime annoyances. If this time-frame doesn't work for you, please feel free to let me know and we can try to re-schedule our daily meetings to something that will better suit you.

    Let's begin with quick introductions. I'll go first.: I'm Dr. Abigail Peston (you can just call me Abby) and I'll be leading our first meeting. I'm here to help you talk about some of your issues and hopefully we, as a group, can help each other work through them.

    Who'd like to go next? How about you?

    Figures. Pick the oldest guy here to go first. Well, name's Max. Maxwell Alchemy, if you want to get technical about it. Immortal. Witch. Nothing much to say but I got my ancestors screaming inside my head twenty-four seven. Some people say I need to be here to learn to control the voices so I don't go crazy with my magic mojo, but if anything I'm here for the free food.

    Very well meeting you, Max. A great welcome to you and your...guests. That does sound interesting and hopefully we'll be able to help you here. Just for clarification's sake, you haven't yet gone completely crazy, yes?

    [Aside, quietly, to The Home's other psych staff, Please do keep a close eye on Mr. Maxwell, yes?]

    With a smirk forming on his lips, he crosses his arms. Depends on who you ask. Feeling the room's eyes on him, chuckles, and sharply. Joking. No. I haven't gone completely mental. I promise. Cross my heart and hope to die.

    Standing from her seat, she waves and all eyes are upon her.

    Hello, I'm Rocio Ryland and I will be serving as a therapist here. If anyone wants to speak in private just let me know, and I can schedule an appointment with you in my office. My door is always open to every tenant here, so please feel free to visit at any time.

    She looks among the small group in the room, and smiles weakly. And, uh...a little about myself is that I am actually a Reaper, so I know a thing or two about death and grief and anger. She takes a seat and crosses one leg over the other, leaning back in her seat.

    Thank you, Rocio, for that...exuberant introduction. I know your unique experience and perspective will no doubt be helpful to the group.

    Abby looks quickly around the room, patient smile and flat eyes never faltering. Would anyone else like to say a word or two?

    Greetings! I am Blyme Brodim, heir to the Brodim bloodline, and divine god! Blyme raises his arms up dramatically, causing sparks to fly from his fingertips. You have no need to fear me, for although my power is strong, I mean none of you harm unless you call upon my wrath.

    Shep looked around to see that no one else was speaking and it was as good as time as any to speak up.

    Um, I'm Shep and the doctors call my condition Multiple Personality Disorder but if you wanna be technical about it, I'm basically possessed. Sound crazy? Tell me about it.

    Abby briefly leans away from the flare of lights coming off Blyme and discreetly stamps out a small fire that ignites at the edge of her dress. Quickly unfurrowing her brows and letting out a quite huff of indignation, she returns to her calm facade and speaks again.

    Well, it's very nice meeting you both.

    If you don't mind, Mr. Blyme, I'll have to ask you to keep the sparks to a minimum. I'm afeard there are many things in this room that are very much flammable and we are quite out of the way of the local fire department.


    She turns minutely to Shepard and leans forward to place her hand on his. And Mr. Shep, dear, we really don't like to use words such as "crazy" and "possessed" during group sessions. They do seem a tad...judgmental, don't you think? Yes, of course, so if you could please...

    With a soft pat against his knee, she turns back to the group. Mr. West? Ms. Hartsong? Would you like to say a word before we dig in?

    Seeing as no one else got up to speak, the soulful vampiress got up from her chair, looking as much bored as she could be, while chewing her gum. She fixed her black dress, pulling the sides down, looking totally uninterested in the beings around her and the place as well. Once she was pleased with the way her short dress hugged her bum she said, ''I am Mariaxielle - Rogue Hartsong, and you can call me Rogue. Only the members of my family tent to call me Mariaxielle though I hate that name, so you better be careful on how you choose to call me.''

    She smirked, pushing her long, raven hair behind, leting them fall on her back as the she continued, ''I am the sole daughter of the Hartsong family, and in case you don't know we are all vampires but I am a spell castor as well. I was sent here in order to find a way so I can resist the urges of feeding off other male vampires and using my spells to kill any female vampire that shows up in front of me. It seems like the only vampire I love is... well, me,'' and with that she sat down on her chair again while crossing one leg over the other, still keeping that uninterested face on.

    [I hope you meant like this.]

    "Ha!" Rollin couldn't help but snort when the vampire mentioned her name, "that's funny, seeing as I am a rogue." He leaned back against the chair, and crossed his muscled arms. He thought this whole thing was stupid, but he had been riding back seat to his wolf for four years straight. He had a temper that wasn't ready to be out of the woods, and now he was unable to remember a single thing when he shifts.

    A silent moment passed before he sighed and ran a rough hand through his hair, "Fine. My name is Rollin, I was a wild animal for a while, and when I stole these clothes..." He nodded to covered body with a shrug, "I heard somebody mention something about a 'home' of sorts that can help with whatever I need help with." His lifted his arms, and with a mocking smile he looked around the room, "And here I am."

    Rollin...what kind of name was that, the vampire thought, admiring her well-manicured, black nails. It wasn't just the name though, Rollin was a wolf. Wolves and vampires weren't actually friends, not in the past and not now. Be patient, Rogue. You don't want to end up like your parents, she thought trying hard to surpress the feeling of going into battle mode and creating problems on the first group session.

    That wasn't the only reason she was angry though. The day was young and the session was scheduled at a time where she should have been sleeping as peacefully as posssible. She didn't really care how the session was going, she was thinking she had to solve her problems on her own. Mariaxielle wasn't one to accept other people's help, so this was going to be hard for her.

    As the silence in the room drifted heavily in the air, Maxwell leaned forward in his chair and scanned the room, eyeing the various...people...before him. He couldn't help but let his annoyance at being here pick at him. He lived through a century for this? To be part of self help program with a bunch of souls as broken as him. It was absouletly pathetic, but there was no stopping it. He was already here.

    Chuckling to himself in disapproval, he pushed himself back into his chair and crossed his arms over his leather jacket. His eyes landing on Dr. Abigail Peston's. He shook his head as her eyes shifted on him and he smirked.

    "So, what's next? You cure us? Make us better people? Do we cry on each other's shoulders and say I'm with you, pal?" He pauses and looks over at Rouge, pointing a slender finger at her and speaking in a mocking tone. "I don't know about you, but Mariaxielle over there has killed before and I'm pretty picky about who's shoulders I cry on."

    Rocio stared at Maxwell curiously for a moment. She knew that bitter pill he was swallowing, she'd seen it many times. At first she wanted to remain quiet, but the way he spoke irked her a bit. His personality was definitely a strong one.

    "Mr. Alchemy," Rocio said calmly, but firmly. "You're mistaken, there is nothing to cure here. There is nothing wrong with you or anyone else here. We're here simply to know that one, we are not alone, and two we can lead normal lives. I understand that might sound odd and pretentious, but what is the real reason any of you have come here?"

    Her eyes slowly drifted among the many different faces in the room, wondering if anyone would answer.

    Mariaxielle smiled at Maxwell, before she turned her head towards Rocio. Things were finally getting interesting a bit and she wasn't going to let this chance pass by. ''I think I said it before, but I'm not here because I want to. I was sent here in order to not kill again someone of my kind, and especially from my own clan. Nothing more and nothing less.''

    The vampiress pulled her hair up with her hands like she was about to tie them up in a ponytail, but then she let her hair fall freely. Was she the only one who had killed someone? If that was the case, then she had to be the most dangerous and that excited her. It meant that no one would mess with her or bother her under any circumstances. She just had to make sure of it.

    ''By the way, am I the only one who has ever killed someone?'' Her slanted blue eyes that are like two sapphires had a weird spark in them, and her smiling face as she looked at their faces while waiting for the answers she wanted made her look like the type of witch you hear about in faitytales; old, ugly and riding on a broom.

    Thinking over the question, Rollin shrugged, "I've killed fellow wolves, hunters... I might have had someone as a meal too."

    The ex Beta rubbed his jaw, he didn't exactly remember if he did eat another being or not. He wouldn't put it past his wolf though, anything to survive when you're a rogue.

    Maxwell's eyes widen in exaggeration. He bite his lip, holding back laughter. A smirk playing at the corners. He narrowed his eyes at Rouge and Rollin and raised a brow. "Geez, this is why I have trust issues. You never know who can be a murderer these days."

    Shaking his head, he glanced towards Rocio. "How can this help us? How can people like us try and lead normal lives when it's impossible? Look at us, we're nowhere near normal." He stood up out of his seat, so the attention was drawn onto his next words more firmly. "We're one step closer to being locked up in the looney bin. Not to mention the fact that I couldn't possibly relate to a divine God!"

    Maxwell points to Blyme who has been silent since his introduction. He shook his head, chuckling silently to himself to calm down his anger as the voices in his head started to shout at him, encourage him to enrage himself more.

    "If you wish to relate to me, you need only pray for guidance," Blyme replied, standing up and facing Maxwell, flexing his fingers. "Although I doubt that a puny being such as yourself could relate to the power of a god like myself."

    Blyme turned to Abby. "I am insulted that I must spend time in the company of petty murderers and fools such as these."
