Fall Flat - Chapter 2 - Throwing Shade
The village was not far from Covehaven, about a day’s walk. They reached it in ten hours.
“Do you ever stop and breathe?!” Alex was practically jogging to keep up with Karea.
“You don’t have to, so I don’t know why you’re complaining.” Karea was fiddling with a device attached to her headphones. Alex had decided he disliked the things; Karea insisted they only played music, but Alex wasn’t sure they didn’t also send her covert messages. She certainly played with them enough.
“Alex, why don’t we go this fast all the time?” KV slid off his back, stretching her arms around in a vague imitation of Karea.
“You almost fell off my back seven times. It’s dangerous.” KV pouted, but Alex was surveying the village dubiously. “So where’s this friend of yours? This region is more known for agriculture and plant mages than any sort of famous wizards.”
“Don’t worry, he’s

Fall Flat - Chapter 1 - Too Fast
They heard the crunch before they saw anything.
It had been a pretty good morning so far. KV had woken up with only minimal fuss, the bread Alex had bought the day before was only slightly smushed and still edible. The sun was bright but not too bright, the breeze mild. It felt like spring was finally there, though Alex was sure winter would rear its ugly head again a few more times before summer suddenly rushed in to overtake them both.
“And that’s why I think you’re holding out on me, cuz in my dream I could shoot a lot of light and fly, but now I can only sorta glow.”
“And how is this my fault?” Alex ducked under some low-hanging branches, shifting his gait slightly so KV wouldn’t lose her perch on his back.
“You’re my teacher! Teach me better!” KV held out her hands and sparkled slightly. “See? I can do so much more!”
Alex sighed rather pointlessly. “I don’t want you to go too fast. That’s how

Fall Flat - Chapter 0.3 - Express
"Coulda picked someplace a little more convenient..." grumbled Karea to no one in particular. She had turned off the headlamp on her creaky old bike so no one would see her as she wove through the trees. The fighters in this area hadn't quite gotten the memo that there was a treaty in the works, and more than once she'd had to make a hasty retreat when asked where she haled from or what she was carrying. The last time had shredded her tires on her good bike. Hopefully this job would pay to replace that and more.
The woods were quiet, even the crickets too war-weary to sing in the dusk. A few stray fireflies flickered at the edges of her sight, but otherwise she might as well be alone out here. She knew that wasn't the case, but the thought had a melancholy sort of poetry to it. Karea didn't mind the quiet; her headphones were in and playing a quietly throbbing song, something to keep her pace steady as she rode. She could move much faster when she was alone.

Fall Flat - Chapter 0.2 - Evening Primrose
“OK, ready?” Mae slipped on her goggles. “Take twenty-two of the purifier seeds.”
Tawny snickered. “Do you think you’ll need those?”
Mae turned pink. “Well at least four-“
“Six.”
“… Six of the experiments have reacted violently-“
“Exploded.”
“… Exploded when exposed to the growth serum.”
“Yeah. They’re a good look for you, actually.” Tawny rattled the seeds’ shadows lightly, making the seeds hovering a few feet away rattle and bump each other.
“Don’t agitate them!”
“Sorry.” Tawny’s shadow stopped. “OK, take twenty-one?”
“Twenty-two.” Mae picked up her serum spray bottle and took aim at the seeds. “Ready… steady… Go!” She pressed the plunger, shooting a fine mist of her mother’s growth serum at the seeds. The mist coated a small area, making the few surviving bla

Fall Flat - Chapter 0.1 - Artificial Light
“A-A-Alex!” The golem straightened up, blinking. “Alex!!!”
Alex scrambled to his feet and rushed to KV’s side, his fingers gouging the ground as his spring arm lagged behind. “What? What is it? What’s wrong?”
KV sat up, rubbing at her eyes. “I… there was a monster and… it grabbed me…”
“Where? Where’s the mons- that was a dream wasn’t it?”
KV grabbed his arm, shivering. “It was scary!”
Alex groaned, patting her back. “You’re ok. It wasn’t real.” He sat down. “Do you want to, um, talk about it?”
KV didn’t let go of his arm. “I… I was looking for something and… and then a monster…” She dissolved into sniveling.
“Have ya lost anything lately?”
“Uh… I… I don’t remember!” KV had begun to chew on her hair in agitation. Alex quickly pulled it out of her mouth. “Wh

Marionettes/Ushers

In it's heyday, the Cabaret invited countless souls into its halls to compete in gruesome "shows" to the death. The worlds of those who lost were consumed, broken apart to add on to the labyrinth nightclub's facilities. The loser and whatever poor souls survived this assimilation were added to the show as well, converted by a heartless Head of Staff into beings known as marionettes. These marionettes were bound to the club for eternity, ranging from shambling husks of their former selves, to agonized servants unable to free their minds and souls from the Cabaret's grasp. The Head of Staff vanished when the Cabaret's timeline splintered, but the fate of this army of marionettes remains in question.

 

Even more curious is the Cabaret's other set of workers, the dapperly-dressed ushers. Simple beings made up of the Cabaret's omnipotent goo, these once-plentiful creatures usually pose no threat… of course, what can ever be said to be truly safe in a world like the Cabaret?

EnCCore Judge - Canary/The Other
For :iconcascade-cabaret-oct:

Additional Info

-Neither Canary nor the Other has to eat to live, but they can. Canary likes soft, squishy foods she can play with, like bread or mashed potatoes; the Other likes bonbons and red wine. She's a bit of a lush She insists she doesn't have a problem.

-Canary and the Other's voices are the same, though their inflection is slightly different.

-Canary seems to forget distressing events very quickly; Other prefers to keep her oracle fresh, after all.

-Canary's body is made up of a strange unidentified substance (if you try to identify it, she will get embarassed). Her legs, neck, and face are the only organic parts of her; she has no sensitivity to touch or pain anywhere else. Her eyes are not organic, but they function.

-Canary does not seem to notice the Cabaret's sad state. The Other, however...

The rules are thus:

- Pick five of your favorite OCs that you've published on dA and describe them in a very generic 2-5 word way.
- Don't say which character it is you're describing! But describe them in such a way that anyone who know you knows who it is :P
- Tag some victims. Or don't and hope that people love you enough to play along.
- They must draw their own take on that generic concept that isn't expressly copying your character.
- Wash, rinse, repeat, enjoy people tagging you back in revenge for your cruelty in dragging them into this game.


My five are:

1. Interdimensional Hippie
2. Grouchy Golem Babysitter
3. Heartless Office Worker
4. Shadow Rodent
5. Musical Speedster

And because I'm a mean person, I tag:
