Source of the Madness... or is it? (Part 4)

Quickly trotting along but stifling a huge yawn, Natasa's lack of sleep was beginning to catch up to her. While the blue calico aluri had snagged a few hours the previous night after the incident, her curiosity and deep concern for the imprisoned aluri was just too strong. She had to figure this out and quick. The last thing she wanted was to solve this case too slowly and find that he couldn't be helped as a result. It'd break her heart.
After prodding a few folks on the street for information on who to ask, Natasa was soon redirected to a well-built, stone brick building. It seemed to fit the description for the scholar that was described to her.

Natasa squealed in glee as she was handed the finely crafted object. Raising it to a golden eye, she examined the sidewalk much more closely than normal thanks to its magnification.
"You take good care of it, Natasa. I believe in you. There are many cases both in and out of Eyre that need attention, need solving, need exposing. I know you can do it but take your time. You have much to learn, little pebble, but I can see your good heart in doing the right thing and letting justice be served."
Natasa beamed up at the older aluri, his kind gaze meeting hers. He gently took her tiny shoulder into his much larger hand.
"And yet... be careful, little one. Cases will always be dangerous as ther

Carefully, the insane aluri peeked outside. Those that were there earlier had left, leaving the street just outside his bakery empty. Arming himself with a cleaver and his sharpest butcher knife, he knew he'd have to be quick and careful. They'd try to stop him... no, they'd try to kill him. All of them. He could trust no one.
"Hurry, hurry!"
"There's no time! Go!"
Grasping the handles of both his weapons in one hand, he shakily inserted the key into the lock of the front door, struggling to turn it all while grinning with glee. It was time! He'd end them all, he'd be free! But he'd have to be sure he ended the Queen especially; his effort would be fruitless if he didn't. It w

Another lazy day in the bakery. Not much had sold the previous day so there was little to do in terms of making more today. Despite this, a familiar face entered his shop, a smile wide on her lightly colored muzzle.
"Welcome to the bakery. What can I get for you?"
Zak was slightly irritated, as he had been for many days now, and it was all he could do to swallow it down and be polite to his customers. Even he knew that being rude to them would hurt his business, even if he didn't prefer to deal with these chatty critters.
"Yes, do you have any apple fritters today?" The aluri was dressed in fine, light blue silks, something he could probably afford to buy all his baking supplies for a month

Prompt 1: The Message (Zakarias)
Zakarias is an aluri who prefers keeping to himself, thank you very much.
Interacting with other folks is a wearing task to him and as such, he keeps any required interaction short and to the point. None of this 'polite conversation' nonsense, it was a waste of time to him. He didn't need anyone else; he could manage just fine on his own. He might wish occasionally for a little help on days when he's feeling under the weather, or if he has too much to do in too short a time but so far, he has managed just fine.
It wasn't very often that he got out and about outside of supply runs, usually Zak was very content to stay within the confines of his bakery and store front, keeping it neat and tidy. Behind his medium sized shop front, he had a reasonably sized kitchen along with many racks for storing excess goods that wouldn't fit up front at the time. It wasn't terribly often that anything would go to waste, these folks had a great taste for the fruity, sweet pastries he'd concoct. Still, w

Quickly trotting along but stifling a huge yawn, Natasa's lack of sleep was beginning to catch up to her. While the blue calico aluri had snagged a few hours the previous night after the incident, her curiosity and deep concern for the imprisoned aluri was just too strong. She had to figure this out and quick. The last thing she wanted was to solve this case too slowly and find that he couldn't be helped as a result. It'd break her heart.

After prodding a few folks on the street for information on who to ask, Natasa was soon redirected to a well-built, stone brick building. It seemed to fit the description for the scholar that was described to her.

"Way too much white," she muttered to herself, struggling to keep her golden eyes open as she slowly approached. Taking a deep breath, she lifted a hand and knocked loudly.

Slowly, the door creeped open with a slight groan and she was greeted by a tan face, blue eyes watching her curiously. A monocle sat upon the scientist's right eye, his red horns jutting straight up through a tangle of white hair. He flicked a right ear which appeared to have a small metal earring of sorts hanging off it and finally spoke after observing her for a few moments longer.

"Can I help you?"

Natasa fumbled for a moment as she took in his features. "Er-yes, are you Genesis?"

"I am."

"Okay good, do you have a few moments? I'm Natasa, investigator, I'm looking into Zakarias' case, he's the baker from some days ago, are you familiar with it?"

"I'm familiar. What does this have to do with me?"

"Well, as mentioned, I'm looking into the case and I was told to come see you about some questions I need answers to, namely about magic."

Genesis quirked a brow. "Regarding magic?"

"Yes, I theorize that magic is affecting Zak in a horrible way, based on several incidents-"

"I might be able to help you, please, come in and we'll discuss further," Genesis suddenly ushered her inside.

"Er-okay," Natasa trotted in, unable to stop staring at the various flasks and distilleries all over the place. Tables and shelves were covered in glass beakers and flasks, some filled with substances she couldn't identify nor really wanted to. She was hardly a scientist but if this aluri could help her, he might be a valuable asset in the future.

"Please, sit," he invited with a sweep of his arm. Natasa complied on a wooden chair and he took a seat on a nearby stool.

"So, you believe he's being influenced by magic? How? There is no magic that aluri can control, no less the fact that the magic in the portals are gone as well."

"Well, that's the thing, all the evidence is pointing towards magic even though it doesn't make sense. So, here's what happened..." Natasa dove into what she knew about Zak's case, his symptoms and unusual behavior and what she had escaped the night before.

"They were using magic to try and stop you? What did it feel like?" Genesis appeared to be taking notes as she reviewed her own.

"Well, all my muscles got really weak and I almost couldn't keep walking away but once I was out of line of sight, I started feeling better again. I was able to run away after it seemed to wear off and they didn't chase me," Natasa continued.

"Hmmmm..." Genesis brought a hand up to his chin, rubbing it a little in deep thought.

"What do you think? Could it be magic of some kind?"

"I believe so," he at last nodded, speaking slowly. "If there really is magic being used in Eyre, we need to know about it. It definitely sounds like magic is being used to influence this baker as well."

"Is there a way to... I don't know, sever it? Fix it? Reverse it?"

"It could be possible, but I don't know for sure. I'll need to do some research of my own into this."

"Okay, thanks a ton for the consultation. I'm going to see if I can figure out where these people are staying, they have to be somewhere in the capitol since no one can get in or out right now. Do you want to come?"

"Oh no, I have much to do along with finding more information on dealing with magic. Come back later, hopefully we'll have something we can work with."

"Alright, thank you so much!" Natasa slid off the stool, nodded curtly then turned to leave.

"Natasa?"

She paused and looked back to him. He also left his stool behind to approach her. "If these aluri are using dark magic, be very cautious. They won't appreciate an investigator barging in on their work."

-----------------------------------

"Look, I don't know anything more than what I told you earlier, I’m glad you found Genesis, but I don't know anything else. Good day."

The aluri walked off without another word and Natasa frowned deeply. What a grouch! She had gotten her advice on finding the researcher from this particular aluri but now that she was looking further into finding whomever did this to Zak and how to help him, he was much less interested.

"To be quite frank," the aluri stopped and looked back at her, "I think you're wasting your time. They need to toss that insane baker off of Eyre and be done with the whole thing."

"That's a terrible thing to say, he needs help, not punishment!" Natasa protested but her words fell on deaf ears as he turned and left as she spoke. "Hmph! What a jerk," she muttered to herself, shaking her head in utter disbelief and disgust.

"Excuse me, you said you were looking for some unusual aluri and activity?"

A voice caught Natasa's attention and she turned to see the source of the soft spoken voice.

"Er yes, I'm Natasa, I'm investigating into the case of the baker who went mad," she quickly introduced herself and offered a hand to the naturally colored aluri.

"Abony," she replied, accepting the handshake. "Well, my friend Messi and I came across something... unusual the other day. Something we couldn't explain."

"What was it?" Natasa could only hope it was the lead she was looking for. She had been asking around for a couple hours now to no avail.

"I saw some aluri in odd clothing, like really long cloaks or robes and stuff, they looked pretty shady. They were having a quiet conversation just inside a dark alley, they looked like they were planning something," piped up the blue-hued aluri with Abony.

"Did you see where they went??" She was so close!!

"I didn't, I didn't really wanna get close and left 'em alone," Messi shook her head.

"But I know we've also heard recently about what we think are some weird meetings going on in a less-developed part of Eyre. Bit of an eyesore, that place," Abony spoke up once more.

"Meetings? I haven't heard of any meetings going on. None out of the ordinary, anyway," Natasa commented.

"Me neither and I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen some of them going in myself. They match the same description as the ones Messi saw the other day," Abony continued, Messi nodding to back her up. "It seems like they only just started meeting in the past three or four weeks, I've been by there a few times in that time period and only just started seeing them there regularly. How would this have something to do with the baker going mad though?"

The investigator skirted around the question. "You said the less-developed part of Eyre? I'll check there, thanks so much, you've both been a huge help!" Natasa quickly shook both their hands and started away in a rush.

"Good luck!" Abony called after her, Messi waving while trying to stifle a huge yawn.

"What's that got to do with investigating the baker though?" Messi wondered.

"No idea," sighed Abony.

-----------------------------------

"She really wasn't kidding, this place is an eyesore," Natasa breathed as she went down the streets. Eyre may not be that old but some of these buildings looked like they had seen better days. Broken glass, crumbling walls, cracked foundations, garbage strewn on the streets as though the residents couldn't be bothered to care. "I sure hope this place can be cleaned up someday."

She knew she wasn't in the greatest part of the capitol, what few aluri she did come across didn't look too friendly, watching her with guarded hostility.

"What's a pretty thing like you doing around here, hm?" purred one as she walked by.

"Actually, if you could help me find-"

"Not without some shards," they cut her off before she could finish.

"Well, guess I'll just find what I'm looking for on my own. Thanks anyway," Natasa wasn't feeling very thankful but she insisted on being polite. Starting away once more but being a bit more aware of her surroundings, she wasn't having any luck finding anyone that looked remotely like the vague figure from the night before. The sun was going to be going down soon, she had to do this quickly as she didn't want to be caught in this part of the city at night.

After what felt like an eternity of searching and the sun threatening to creep down below the horizon, she had her lucky break.

"That's it!" she breathed, peeking around the corner at the cloaked aluri. She had barely gotten around the corner in time to avoid being seen, just in case. Her little nub of a tail swished vigorously in excitement. The mysterious aluri's expressions were all but emotionless, not paying any heed to any aluri around them. Another was approaching him, and they appeared to have a ragged looking fellow following, jabbering away until he was given a terrible look and he fell silent. The two in their silken cloaks seemed to speak for a moment, shoo away their shadowing aluri then start away. Natasa took a deep breath. She'd have to follow and be really careful about it. It didn't help her colors would have her stand out like a sore dewclaw.

After going even farther towards the edge of town, they stopped at a rundown looking building. It didn't look like much on the outside but Natasa was both excited, and terrified, to see what secrets it held within. Waiting patiently for the aluri to enter, and not moving for a few moments after, she began to investigate the outside to see if she could find a way in.

"Just a little... more... got it!" she gasped as she convinced the stiff window, barely cracked open, to reluctantly slide upwards. There wasn't much room, but she barely managed to squeeze through by sucking in her stomach.

"Maybe a few less crystals in the mornings..." she muttered to herself before taking note of the largely empty room before her. Cautious and jumping at any small noise she heard, she snuck from one room to another, flinching every time a wooden board creaked beneath her weight. She'd have to find what she was after quickly if she was going to have any chance of finding out anything at all.

After carefully searching everywhere she could think, Natasa began to wonder. Where did those two aluri go? She should've at least run into them by now, right? Not to mention she hadn't found anything even remotely useless... no less anything at all. There were only a few pieces of furniture with sheets over them, no furnishing whatsoever and yet, the place wasn't all that dusty. It was being used clearly but what for?

The sound of movement coming from the entrance of the shack immediately caught her attention and she scrambled to hide herself as quietly as possible in one of the rooms, hiding behind a sheet-covered chair. Barely breathing, she waited, praying she wasn't found.

"It's about time, you're late."

"Sorry, I got caught up, this idiot wouldn't leave me alone as I came in... took forever to shake him off."

"You're sure he didn't follow you?"

"I'm sure, he won't be doing anything else tonight."

"Good. The meeting is about to start."

Meeting?? But where were these aluri!? Natasa's heart pounded infinitely faster as she heard the creaking footsteps in the hall go further to the right. A door creaked open loudly. More footsteps. Then the sound of groaning hinges, followed by a thud after a few moments.

Absolute silence.

There had to be a hidden door somewhere. Summoning up her courage and pulling the dagger from her bag for protection, she started away slowly and carefully, her ears actively listening for anything concerning. Checking the three rooms that they could have gone in, she eyeballed the rug in the center of the drafty room, cold evening air blowing in through the cracks of the warping wooden walls.

How very convenient.

She pulled the stiff rug off to the side to discover the trap door. At last, progress! She flinched as she heard the trap door's hinges protest as she carefully pulled the heavy door upwards. Gasping as she was supposed to close it after her, she opted not to and instead carefully laid it opposite of the hole in the floor. She might need a hasty exit anyway. Natasa took in a deep breath and started descending on the rope ladder. Her feet contacted hard dirt, turning to see where she should go. She could hear voices off in the distance, the dug-out hallways lit by countless candles. Even despite how many there were, it was very dark. Slowly, she dared to creep towards the voices, the hilt of her dagger gripped tightly in her right hand. As she progressed, she started to make out words of whomever was talking.

The voice was booming and deep, holding a commanding presence of those who were there. The investigator's sharp ears were picking up something about worship, magic, and bringing about the true nature of Wake and how both she and the world should be. What could this mean? What was their purpose?

Natasa's attention was taken by a small room to her left, the voices coming from what appeared to be a very large room to her right. Opting to peek into the empty room, she came across several books, though none had titles along their spines or covers. Glancing behind her and listening for any sign of discovery, she turned her attention back to the book and flipped it open. Skimming past information including dates, times and what appeared to be the names of aluri, she pulled out her notebook and started taking notes. Her heart quickened as she read an entry of eerily familiar circumstances.

I have succeeded in implanting dark magic into our chosen assassin. Our rightful ruler has established contact with him thanks to the use of our techniques in manipulating such power, taught to us by His grace. It is only a matter of time now. Our plan will be enacted soon but first, we must break his will, then his mind and turn him against those around him. Our chosen assassin is nearly a perfect candidate, having so few relationships with any of them, he will be easy to sway. His strength, however, could be a concern.

Further instructions: The link must be kept strengthened, lest it be broken, so He might turn his mind over to us. We must reinforce it twice a day, every day until the assassin's goal is achieved. We must make it clear: the end goal of assassination is Queen Oracle above all others.


Natasa's stomach was doing flipflops, seeing that there appeared to be further notes. Gripping her pencil more tightly, she skimmed more text, coming to the most recent update.

The chosen assassin has failed. We will continue to coax him into escaping, that we are his only friends. We must keep hold of him for however long it takes, there is still hope he will succeed. Once Queen Oracle is dead, Eyre will be in chaos, the perfect time for our rise to power.

Further instructions: keep the link established, twice a day, every day.

Update: An investigator is looking into his case. Have him convince her to help him, to trust him, then when she returns to him, convince him to kill her.


The lump that was in her stomach was now in her throat. They knew about her and they wanted her dead. Shaking violently and hardly able to write down what she was reading, she put down the book as carefully as she could, feeling as though she could be ill with terror. She had seen enough... it was definitely some kind of dark magic, it had to be broken, removed, somehow!! But how?? And who was this 'rightful ruler' of theirs that they seemed to worship?

Stowing her pencil and notebook filled with many pages of notes from this case, she backed away from the book, fear gripping her further as she nearly felt like she could panic. This was almost too much, a case so deep and disturbing that she wasn't sure she could handle it. Suddenly, she bumped into someone alive and realized that members of this seeming cult were coming out of the room.

And she had run straight into one.

The quiet halls erupted into shouting and chaos, Natasa dropping her dagger and running for her life. She felt aluri struggling to grab her, her feet and short tail only just escaping their grasp as she slowly pulled ahead. She lunged at the rope ladder, scrambling up it as quickly as she could and diving upwards through the trap door. Not bothering to try and close it and slow them down, she slid along the wooden floor of the ruse of a house, tearing out the front door into the dark streets. She saw some dirty looking aluri notice her and watch quizzically. Knowing she had little to no time, Natasa tore down the street towards the more familiar, crisp parts of Eyre, gulping in lungfuls of the humid night air.

That was way too close for comfort.

-----------------------------------

Pounding on the door to Genesis' lab, Natasa's lungs burned in protest as she hadn't slowed down until she reached his home.

"Yes? - Oh, it's you again," the scientist didn't look amused.

"I found it - it's some kind of cult, they want to kill me, they've taken control of him somehow-" Natasa gasped before breaking into a fit of coughing.

"Slow down, slow down, what happened?" Genesis raised a hand in concern. "Come inside and catch your breath first."

Over the next fifteen minutes, Natasa took her time in trying to slow down her breathing, getting dizzy a few times from running so hard for much longer than normal. Finally able to speak, she told him everything she saw and heard, producing her notes with a shaking hand. She handed it to him, and he examined what she had written down with a frown.

"Does this say link or pink?"

"Link, sorry. I was writing kinda fast, I was so scared I'd be caught... they seem willing to do anything to achieve their goals."

Genesis nodded a little, not taking his eyes off her scribbled text. "So, we have definitive confirmation that it is indeed some kind of magic, specifically dark magic, that is influencing him along with a link to this... entity they appear to worship."

"Any ideas on what we can do?"

"I'm afraid not as I haven't had much time to research into this matter."

Natasa sighed heavily. There had to be more that she could do.

Actually, there could be...

"I'll be back maybe tomorrow or the next day, come find me if you find anything," Natasa stood quickly and started away. Genesis adjusted his monocle and frowned.

"And where are you going?"

The blue-spotted aluri didn't look back as she responded, determined to test her new theory. "To question my suspect again."

Genesis quickly followed her, catching up and laying a hand on her shoulder, his blue eyes emanating calm concern. "Are you sure that's wise? If they want you dead and they're able to influence if not control his thoughts, you could be walking to your death."

She paused as she felt his gentle grip, just before the door and shook her head after a moment of thought. "I don't think I am. He spared that pebble before going on his rampage, I think he's still in there. There's hope for him, I know it! I have to save him!"

Again, more of Natasa diving deep into the case for Zakarias and she's getting so close to the source! But is it wise for her to return to the suspect, knowing this mysterious cult-like group is urging him to kill her at whatever cost?

Natasa squealed in glee as she was handed the finely crafted object. Raising it to a golden eye, she examined the sidewalk much more closely than normal thanks to its magnification.

"You take good care of it, Natasa. I believe in you. There are many cases both in and out of Eyre that need attention, need solving, need exposing. I know you can do it but take your time. You have much to learn, little pebble, but I can see your good heart in doing the right thing and letting justice be served."

Natasa beamed up at the older aluri, his kind gaze meeting hers. He gently took her tiny shoulder into his much larger hand.

"And yet... be careful, little one. Cases will always be dangerous as there will always be someone who doesn't want the truth to come out. I'm sure you've already learned that lesson, even despite this failure. Learn to fight as necessary, but only as necessary."

"I will, sir! I promise! You can count on me!"


The investigator sighed softly as she stared at the glassy tool in her palm, eyes warm with the memories of her first case. She had finally grown enough so the magnifying glass didn't feel so massive in the palm of her hand. So early in her life, she had found her path and grown so quickly from a mere pebble to a strong adult. Gaining the trust of others for their mysterious cases, however, was going to be a much greater task. At least she had this judge's trust even despite her first case's failure. Still, he trusted her with this, no less to a case that sounded very dire and time sensitive.

"I suppose the first thing to do is question the suspect," she murmured to herself. Natasa guessed he would undoubtedly be being held in the prison. Taking a moment to remember where it was and casting a quick glance at the map she had of Eyre, she strode off in a trot, her thick, stiff braid patting the side of her neck rhythmically. On her side, she carried a rather large, finely crafted leather bag with just about everything she could possibly need for an investigation. Magnifying glass, tweezers, a mirror, a fine powder with a fine dusting brush and tape for any fingerprints, a stiff brush, cloth bags for holding evidence, long cloth gloves should she need to handle evidence without getting her fur into it, several notebooks and sharpened pencils for notetaking, a few books to pass the time should she have to wait a while, a sharp dagger should she need it, Wake forbid...

As she made her way down the street, she nodded curtly in greeting to several aluri that she knew off-hand. Her thoughts wandered to the case on hand and she furrowed her brow, theories floating about her mind, coming to and fro as she dismissed some and considered others. As her mind was distracted, she failed to see a chiefly purple aluri in her path and promptly ran straight into her.

"Oh my Wake, I'm so sorry!" she gasped in surprise and embarrassment, offering the poor soul a hand in getting up.

"Oh, I'm fine, I get distracted and run into things all the time," the purple aluri was quite gracious with her chuckle, accepting her help in getting to her feet again.

"Yeah, I guess I'm just a little distracted I suppose," Natasa forced a smile despite her apprehension with her task. "Just a lot going on lately, especially that incident from some days ago. I can't imagine you haven't heard of what happened? It's all the buzz right now."

The aluri's smile faded. "Yeah, it was horrible. I couldn't imagine ever wanting to hurt another aluri and threatening to kill the Queen of all things!" the stranger broke her gaze, looking off before shaking her fur as if to expel the uncomfortable feeling. "It's such an awful thing to think about."

"I know! He was so ambitious, wanting to go after the Queen herself... I was told he got as far as the castle," Natasa hushed her voice a little with the details. "Well, I'm Natasa, investigator," she held out a hand in greeting. "I'm actually looking into the case, I don't have much to go off of unfortunately, I was just on my way to the prison to go question him."

"Whoa, I'm Kita," the purple aluri marveled for a moment, lowering her voice as well. "I'm self-employed. You're going to the prison? That's crazy!"

"Crazy, sure, but I gotta figure out what's going on, an aluri doesn't just lose their mind in a matter of days, there's gotta be a cause, a reason. It's just a matter of what... or who," Natasa let her voice trail off as her mind returned to her theories. "I just hope I can get any information out of him if he's as crazy as the judge says he is. Then I might need to question some guards, maybe see if I can track down anyone who's seen him in the past days... have you?"

The purple aluri gestured to another familiar building in the distance. "I didn't really frequent his shop; I prefer the cafe down the street, but I have seen him around some. Never much for friendly hellos, but he didn't seem insane either. I heard of a little pebble that saw him the day leading up to when he snapped, though."

Natasa frowned a little at the cafe. That place would haunt her for a long time. "A pebble?" her interest and heartbeat quickened. "Do you know what the pebble looked like? Have you met it?" If that little one met him before or during the rampage, it may have some key answers.

"I know the pebble from passing, not sure of her name but she's without a home. Poor thing, still young enough to need food, but doesn't have a place to get any," Kita shook her head sadly. "Last place I saw her, she was sitting against a wall down that way," she lifted a hand to point down the road.

It was all Natasa could do not to squeal with glee. "This is perfect, thanks so much for the tip! You can come with if you want but I must warn you, this could get hairy if this goes in a weird direction," Natasa offered. She wouldn't mind a little help and company, assuming her new acquaintance had the same sense of adventure she did. Her first lead into the case! It looks like the prison questioning would have to wait!

The purple aluri smiled but politely declined. "Oh, I'm okay. This stuff isn't for me, it's exciting, don't get me wrong! But I don't deal well with aluri who want to hurt me. I'm glad I could help though!"

Natasa's face fell a little. "Alright then, thanks again for the tip!" Offering a smile of her own and a slight nod, the blue aluri took off in the direction gestured to towards her first witness.

"Best of luck!" Kita offered a wave, watching as the investigator tore away at high speed.

-----------------------------------

"Excuse me little one," Natasa called to the small aluri who appeared to be sorting through a small assortment of items within a worn cloth bag.

"Oh, hi!" she waved cheerfully before going back to what she was doing.

"Excuse me, did you meet Zakarias recently? Before the incident the other day?"

"Zakarias?" the pebble looked thoughtful. "Oh... the baker, right?"

"Yes, that's him, did you meet him?"

She nodded a little, suddenly looking a little fearful.

"What's wrong? You can tell me, it's alright," Natasa gently pressed, offering a hand of comfort.

"What if he comes back?" the little aluri stepped in close, barely speaking above a whisper, her little eyes were wide with worry.

"He won't, don't worry. He's being held in a cell right now until we can figure out what's happened to him," the investigator reassured her but couldn't help but fear that he might find some way to escape.

"Are you sure? He really scared me, I-I thought I was going to die that day..."

"He attacked you?" Natasa's stomach turned in her belly at the mere suggestion.

"W-well, no," the pebble looked down at the ground beneath her. "He was going to but he just... stopped. I don't know why..."

Natasa nodded a little, her ears tilted back as she processed this. He was willing to attack other aluri easily but not willing to harm a pebble... was it possible he still had a sense of right and wrong? Whipping a notebook out of her bag and carefully gripping the wooden pencil in a hand, she started scribbling down information.

"I saw something else too, do you want to know?" The pebble interrupted her writing.

Natasa nodded, not looking up from her work. "Sure, what else do you know about him?"

"So... I was really hungry; it's been so hard since the portals have been down. I was looking around behind his bakery, that was when he was normal, I guess. He made me leave but later, he found me again and took me back and let me eat. He was really nice, it's true!" she explained, nodding as she finished.

"Really... hm," Natasa felt a small rush of relief at the oddly kind gesture. She had always been told he was more calloused, but it seems he had a soft spot for pebbles at this point.

"That's not all," she continued, "I saw something really weird after that."

"What? What'd you see?"

"I'm not sure... I was just leaving, and I heard something happen. I think he saw someone hiding in the dark, the sun had set a while before, so it was really dark. He had called out to them, that's when I turned around. Then he just... fell over like he couldn't move. Whoever it was, they were covered in a cloak or something so I couldn't see who they were, and they did something to him."

"Did you see what they did!?" Natasa's heart jumped into her throat.

The pebble shook her head. "I got scared, I ran away. But someone did something to him. Do you think that's why he started attacking everyone?"

"It might be... thank you so much, you've been a huge help! Now, don't go back to the bakery for the time being, stay away from there until we get this all figured out." Natasa took the adolescent's smaller hand into her own and shook gently.

The pebble beamed and nodded in agreement. "I'll be careful, I'm glad I could help! What are you going to do now? What are you doing?"

"I'm an investigator, the judge for Zak's case asked me to look into this. You just gave me a bunch of really important information; it could blow this case wide open."

"Wow... that sounds so important! And dangerous... you'll be careful, right?" the pebble's eyes were wide as saucers.

"Always, I can handle this. Next step... question the suspect." Natasa breathed as she turned, apprehension squeezing her chest with an iron grip.

"You're going to talk to him? That sounds scary."

"Yeah... I'm sure it will be..."

-----------------------------------

At last arriving at the prison, well after she had planned on being there, Natasa's mineral-infused heart was pounding steadily with excitement, fear and worry. If he had a good look at the face of his attacker, maybe she could start a city-wide search. Still, getting any information out of him could be difficult. Taking a deep breath in an attempt to settle herself down, she was accompanied by a guard as she strode towards his cell, halting just outside of it. She could hear him muttering inside, the sound of metal shifting on stone echoing from inside.

"Excuse me? Hello?"

"Go away!!"

His sharp snarl made her flinch back slightly. Swallowing hard, she spoke up again.

"Zakarias, right? I'm Natasa, I'm an investigator, I'm trying to figure out what happened to you-"

"What HAPPENED is you all are trying to KILL me!"

"That's not true," Natasa protested, "I'm trying to help you, I can only help you if you tell me what you know, what happened that night! When did this all start? These voices?"

For several seconds, he was largely quiet save for the smallest of whispers she couldn't quite make out. Natasa dared to peek through the small barred window. She could see him heavily restrained at the back of the cell, his narrowed, yellow eyes burning with fear and rage but also contemplation. He didn't meet her gaze.

"Careful miss, he's very dangerous," the guard gently pulled her back with a heavily armored glove. She couldn't quite see how she could be in any danger with how heavy the metal shackles looked, not to mention how many there were on him, but she decided to take his word for it.

"Who told you it was night? WHO!?" he demanded in a low hiss.

"A little pebble, you gave her food that day, even spared her life. I talked to her."

He was silent once more. For a little while, she wasn't sure he was going to keep responding. This could be a huge waste of her time.

"I'll tell you what I know if he leaves."

Natasa glanced at the guard, who frowned disapprovingly. "Miss, I don't recommend that you be here alone. He's dangerous, he almost killed-"

She carefully cut him off. "I know what happened, I'm aware of what I'm doing. Please go and wait outside the door, I'll let you know if I need help."

"Miss, you don't understand, he had the power of five aluri, I was there-"

Natasa silenced him with a glare. Exasperated, the guard sighed and walked away as requested.

"Now then... what happened that night, the night after you fed that pebble?"

"That's what I did with the pebble?"

Natasa blinked as she paused from pulling her notebook out again. He didn't remember? "What do you remember?"

"So little... it's all a blur and- no, no, if the pebble trusted her, I can trust her, right? The pebble isn't corrupted, not warped, not yet..."

Natasa listened to him ramble to no one at all for several moments. Shaking her head in disbelief, she started writing down what she was hearing him go on about. Something about the pebble not being warped against him. Who was telling him this?

"Excuse me?" she tentatively tried to interrupt his seemingly one-sided conversation. He fell quiet. "Just who are you talking to?"

"My friends... my allies... the only ones I can trust," he growled.

"Where are they?"

"I don't know... they whisper to me as though they are right next to me."

Forced to take his word for it, she continued. "What have they been telling you?"

"The Queen, it's her fault! She's turned them all against me, they all hate me because of her lies. She wants me dead, they want me dead! D-do you!?"

Natasa gaped for a moment before finding her voice. "No, no, by Wake no-"

"DON'T SAY THAT NAME!!" Zak suddenly bellowed, the sound of metal clanging loudly caused her to jump back as he pulled on his restraints.

"Wh-why? What do you have against Wake?"

Silence.

"I-I don't know..."

The investigator laid down her pencil and placed two fingers on her forehead. He grew very angry at hearing Wake's name... he believes the Queen is trying to kill him, along with others supposedly 'corrupted' by her when it was clearly paranoia... these supposed voices were his friends and convincing him of this? For what purpose? Who were they and where were they? How were they doing this? Nothing was making sense, she had to keep asking and hope the right question came out. "Do you remember anything at all from that night? Any faces?"

"Eyes... big eyes... big purple eyes..." he hissed.

"Anything else?" Natasa dared to peek through the window again. To her utter shock, his smoking, wide, yellow eye with a sideways pupil, was mere inches from hers, staring right back. She gasped and jumped back. He was loose!? It must have happened when he got angry! His quiet snicker came from behind the door, clearly amused that he startled her. He then responded.

"Nothing else... just what are you going to do?"

The blue aluri gulped, her heart beating faster than she thought possible. If he could get that door open, she might be as good as dead. Her response could dictate what happens.

"I'm going to figure this out... I'm going to find out who did this to you, who those voices are and how to shut them up - for good. They have to be coming from somewhere."

"Why quiet them? They've told me the truth."

She could only just make out what he was saying from his quiet tone. "They're not telling the truth, they aren't, don't you want to know who they are? None of us are trying to hurt you, I swear. If you can trust the pebble, you can trust me, right? Like you said? I can help you, please let me!" It pained her heart to play his delusional game, but she felt she had no choice. The eerie quiet made her more and more tense to the point of feeling nauseated. Finally, he responded, his tone sounding much less menacing and more worried, even fearful.

"Y-yes... I-I want to know who they are... find them and tell me. You'll see the truth... maybe that wretch of a Queen is trying to kill you too."

Natasa had to choke back a response regarding his reference to Queen Oracle. "I will, promise. I have to go now, stay in there and you'll be fine, okay?"

When he didn't respond, she took that as an answer and forced herself to walk away from the cell. Every muscle screamed at her to run but her mind said otherwise. Closing the door behind her, she let out the breath she was holding.

"Er... you might want to restrain him again... I think he's out of his bonds," Natasa pointed out quietly as her mind reeled at the unusual encounter. The guard nearly panicked for a moment before calling for backup and several of them poured into the hallway as they prepared to enter his cell and repair what he had done. They ushered her away and she could hear his furious bellow as she went. Her heart skipped a beat from both fear and pity, unable to meet anyone's gaze as she steadily left the prison.

She had to help him. She couldn't bear to see him suffering like this. What was it like hearing voices telling you lies? After all, if one is told a lie long enough, they'll start believing it...

Natasa's fear melted into anger towards the ones who would do this. She'd get to the bottom of this, even if it cost her everything.

-----------------------------------

"Hi again!"

It was the pebble. Evidently, she was waiting for her outside of the prison. Natasa forced a smile despite her heavy burden.

"What'd you find out?" she questioned.

"Not much about the case itself but a lot about him... I feel terrible for him. He's hearing voices that aren't there, they're telling him awful things, so many lies, and I don't know why or who they are or how. I have to help him," Natasa felt it best to keep the details to herself.

"Really? Why is he hearing stuff that isn't there?"

"I don't know but I'm going to find out. I'm going to the bakery and see if I can find anything there," the investigator started away once more.

"Good luck! Loke be with you!"

The darkening streets felt eerily quiet. The recent rampage had scared most folks into staying indoors after dark until the case was solved and the memories became more distant. Wishing she had a lantern on hand, Natasa didn't meet a soul on the way to the bakery. Seeing the door was still unlocked, she slowly walked inside but the strong scent of rotting fruit made her gag. The entire place looked ransacked. Were looters here or was all this destruction caused by him in his madness? Finding a lantern, she helped herself to using it and she closely searched the entire bakery from the attic to the shop floor. Despite her best efforts, she found no telling evidence of what might have happened. Not even a journal. Shaking her head from her fruitless search, she went out the back door. It was here that she examined what she presumed to be the place he had been attacked. Once again, she found nothing useful except some colorless residue on the ground not far from the back door. It appeared to be in some kind of shape she couldn't make out. She took as much of a sample as she could into one of her evidence bags. There was so little to work with and it was contaminated with dirt too, but it was the only thing she had.

Feeling as though she was being watched, Natasa looked up and her blood ran cold. She could see someone watching her from the shadows, their figure hidden by a cloak. This felt eerily similar to what she had been told.

"Who are you? Show yourself!" she called out, recoiling back slightly as she realized she was staring into dark purple eyes. Realizing what she was seeing and how it fit the description, Natasa turned tail and fled, feeling a resounding weakness rising in her muscles that nearly caused her to stumble around the corner of the building. Flailing around similar to that of an aluri with too much to drink, she struggled to keep moving away for several moments before her muscles began to respond properly once more. Tearing away at top speed, she glanced over her shoulder to see she wasn't being pursued but she wasn't about to slow down, rushing to put more distance between her and that bakery.

It had to be them! She had nearly suffered the same fate Zak had! That had to have been some sort of magic to immobilize her at least. But what kind? And how? She was far from a magic expert, most aluri weren't. At last slowed to a walk and panting heavily, she shook her head, fretting for several moments.

She'd just have to track down an expert, wouldn't she? Maybe they'd be able to explain this residue too.
Investigating the Madness (Part 3)

Mostly Natasa showing up here. She's gotta figure out what's happened to Zakarias, hopefully before it's too late. Looks like she needs a little help though...

Thanks to :iconrainsong212: for doing a short RP with me so I could have Kita guest star in this part of the story. c: I was planning on going farther into the plot on this part but this was long enough. Sheesh, I might end up making this 5 parts, oops... EDIT: And that'll be happening, GG me!

MADNESS! CURSE YOU! 

I mean, I'm actually posting another journal. This feels wrong. And yet, it shall be done.  I am a dummy! 

SO, my creativity has been basically kickstarted since the liver surgery (blame :iconkrizpie: for this, getting me into the aluri APRG, HOW COULD YOU) and it just doesn't seem to know how to stop. It's kinda nice, I haven't had this much fun with storybuilding, character-making, drawing (I'm even enjoying SKETCHING, that is my BANE. Screw lining though, still tedious), etc. in so many years.

And for once? I wanna do something with 'em rather than just. Have them around for my own enjoyment.

I'm tempted to start roleplaying again, it feels kinda weird. I kinda stopped in the 2010s or so due to lack of interest. I also blame getting sick again in '11 onwards and learning to cope with that majorly drained my creativity a lot of the time. I won't stop writing on my own and what not, I still love being able to write up my own stories but I wanna see what happens when I stick these guys into environments and plots not necessarily developed by myself. As such, that means I'm gonna have to start building up characters again. I can't just use my Guild Wars 2 toons on :iconscigergw2: for everything after all. ;P Nor what neopet characters I still have on that dumb site. I still can't believe I'm on there. I still can't believe it still exists. OH WELL, it's still fun. Sweating a little... 

I'll have to see what happens. I have some concepts floating around in my head, for now it'll be a matter of vomiting them into Notepad++ (yes I write there, don't ask why) and see if anything comes out of them. I'm already revamping a design I made back in '10, WIP sketch is pretty well done, just gotta get some more details done then I can start progressing again. Though my lack of humanoid characters outside of GW2 disturbs me (I only have like, three in there though LOL), I neglected to make many of those over the years simply due to my aversion to drawing humanoids. Which still persists to this day.
Curse you, human anatomy, CURSE YOU!! I'm in ur post! Shakin mah fish! 

I MIGHT AS WELL MAKE A LIST. I do know some themes/fandoms/whatever I DO want to get into over time, at least for the lolz if not for potential RPing are,

Guild Wars 2 (duh)
Pokemon? Maybe? I dove into that a little in the past but never went anywhere solid with it.
Human characters since I never actually got into developing many of those in the past. These guys can go basically anywhere. Versatility! La la la la 
Harry Potter stuff? Idk, the whole world is cool and all but I've never made anything work longterm. |D
Fantasy style stuff? I do like me some old folklore stuff, that's always fun to discover new things in. I remember I always saw RP boards for these on Neo but never getting into 'em. I was too addicted to Neopets RPs I guess. xD

And uh. Idk what else. What is thinking and how do. I think I've fainted. 

I also notice I'm a lil behind the times, it feels like artists/writers are moving on from dA to other sites. I've seen places like toyhou.se, I know FA is still a thing though I don't plan on going there. I'm not touching tumblr with a ten foot pole, no thanks, mm-mm. Might not hurt for me to look into other options as well at some point.

Why am I doing this again? BECAUSE I CAN! And it's fun. You can't disagree there. ;P

...I feel like a teenager again. xD

Investigating ALL the Things!
This design and aluri is dedicated to Pixel, my sweet, independent kitty who crossed the rainbow bridge on April 12, 2019. Her calico-esque design and white dot on her nose are inspired from her markings. Have fun over there, lil girl, and don't let Wormie get you in too much trouble! <3

As I was going about Zak's story, I quickly figured out that I'd need a 2nd aluri to help him out once he's back to normal (if he ever gets there) so this gal was born. I got stuck on designing her colors but when I learned that Pixel was deteriorating faster than we realized, I knew what I had to do. I finished designing her the day after my kitty passed, a lot of her left markings/her head markings being heavily based on her own.

I'm grieved, yes, but I'm also very relieved. She was suffering a great deal, more than we realized for a time but now she's at rest. Thanks for being independent company, Pix, you were a very good lil girl.
