[spam for 8th Floor]
[A terrible row is coming from within Cabin 16; inhuman roaring, smashing, thuds, and the sound of heavy wood furniture being knocked to splinters. It is so violent that the heavy, ironbound oak door shakes in its frame. Dracula has almost completely lost it, at long last, and he is done with swallowing his anger down and letting it turn into despair. At least he manages to take it out on his furniture instead of people. For now. But eventually there is nothing left to destroy, and the noise grows silent save for a long snarl.]

[private to Narvin]
[Dracula's voice is a metallic, inhuman rumble, full of rage.]

I will need replacements for all of my furniture.

And I strongly suggest that you let me into the CES and leave me there for at least a few days.


[post-Omega spam for CES: All Wednesday]
[There is a beast loose in the CES, and he doesn't give a damn about much of anything. He's avoiding people, because he knows that at the slightest conflict his rage will likely lead to someone's injury or death, but there are too many people even here for him to avoid them completely. So he tries to fill himself on animal blood and vent on the environment as best he can. But what he really rages against is not animals or stones or deadfalls, but so many he has had to deal with here. Hell is other people.]

[It was of sufficient strength to catch Omega's attention as he was leaving his own room. He briefly considered not interfering, but the Doctor shifted in his mind, silently urging him not to.

He approached Dracula's door and stopped again.]

Vladislas...?

[Thankfully, it was loud enough to be heard despite the door, given it had never been a voice formed by the Doctor's vocal cords.]

[Riddick wasn't out for a hunt, specifically, when he got let into the CES-- just liked the environment and wanted to smell the green of plants, not the thick smell of a whole ship full of people.

The smell of plant-life and the sound of small things were good. But the animals were freaked, alarm calls from far away and silence up close. He knew why, smelled it as he was coming in, the faint trail on the decking.

Blood. Not human blood, not animal. He was pretty sure he knew whose it was-- but not how someone like that got cut enough to bleed. His movements got quiet, slow; he slid into the environment, letting sound and scent and wind close around him, trying to locate Dracula. And preferably get downwind of him.]

[He's not sure he wants to know what happens next. Catching up with the older predator seems like a stupid idea. But sheer persistent fuckery-- pure human curiosity, not animal instinct-- draws him on, cat-foot quiet through the undergrowth, eyes piercing the darkness, following the tracks as they change.]

[Riddick crouched behind a tree, body flattened to the trunk, nostrils flaring and eyes wide as he watched.

The animal wasn't one he'd have taken one on one. Something that strong-- the organic version of a Gall-- that would be a drop-kill, an ambush or trap-kill, for him. The raw strength on display made his hackles raise but he watched the fight, intent, sucking in the detail.]

[Given the timing of this and Aleera's post, he suspects that he has some idea of what happened, although he doesn't know any of the details.]

I'll make sure your furniture is replaced and your room cleaned.

You may stay in the CES as long as you deem necessary. Just don't kill or maim anyone or else in the future I'll have to insist that your rages take place in Zero, for the safety of the ship.

[Narvin will let Dracula work some of the violent rage out of his system a bit before they talk about what happened.]

I don't want you to swallow the rage. Rage all you like. Zero isn't meant to be a threat, it's a tool, just like the CES. It's a place you can rage safely if the CES turns out to be inadequate for the task. I'm not putting your needs last, but I do have to balance your needs with everyone else's.

If you'd like to discuss what's wrong, I'll join you in the CES. I thought letting you rage first before talking about it would be better, but if I'm mistaken I'll change my plans.

[He hesitates. He doesn't like to talk about his failures, but if there's to be any chance of fixing this, he has to.]

I was possessed a few months back. Under her influence I... It wasn't rage, just a cold desire to kill, to commit violence and assert power. I pursued what safe outlets I could, but in my more lucid moments, when the possession was most distant, I considered locking myself in Zero until I could understand what was wrong and how to fix it. Pandora wouldn't allow it; it would raise too much suspicion. The point is, I wasn't considering putting myself in Zero as self-punishment, but to protect the denizens of the Barge when I feared that my self-control might prove insufficient.

I'm not Ar-- [He stops himself. He needs to be diplomatic here, to listen and not go on the verbal offensive.]

All right. I accept that to you the use of Zero doesn't seem like a tool because of your previous experiences, and that it would be more detrimental than helpful. I take back what I said. [And if Dracula does kill someone, he'll deal with it in some other way.] In return, I'd ask you to accept that I am not St. Just, nor Mr. Cage. Just as you don't want to be judged for the crimes of other vampires, I'd rather not be judged for the failures of other wardens.

As for the denizens of the Barge, I agree. Most of them don't deserve protection. Nevertheless, I protect them because it's my duty, not because they've earned it.

[There. Diplomacy isn't his forte, but he managed to keep calm and not degenerate into shrillness as he usually does during disagreements.]

So, other than time in the CES, what is it that you need right now? [He's not very good at intuiting emotional needs; most Time Lord aren't. But he's ready to step up to the challenge if given a bit of guidance.]

[The CES skips like a record. That's the only sign of the two-hour search Chromie has been doing for Dracula, and when it finishes there's a gold dragon perched like a gargoyle on an outcropping of rock, watching with sad green eyes.]

The dragon let's go of the cliff and drops. She opens her wings and glides before she hits the ground and vanishes into a copse of trees.

Chromie the gnome pads out the other side, within sight of Drac.]


I am here, [she calls, softly.] I don't want to surprise you.
