Please use this post for:

¤ concerns about Frankie's characterization and/or activities within the game
¤ contact with the player
¤ plot ideas / interaction requests / et cetera!

I am [of course] not Frankie Dalton, nor am I Michael Dorman, nor do I claim any ownership over the characters, stories, or artwork used within this journal. I am a roleplayer, roleplaying, for fun and I make no money. Don't take things too seriously.

A Note On Icons; I know, not all of my icons are actually from the right movie. Given that Frankie's human in polychromatic and was a vampire for 90% of the movie, I'm a little limited in how much footage I can feasibly use for him. Not to mention, when I apped the film was still in theaters so I kind of needed to look elsewhere to fill out expressions and such. At this point I'm so used to the Suburban Mayhem icons that I've decided to keep a lot of them, though I've filled out his space with a lot more Daybreakers ones as well. I hope this doesn't confuse or bother anyone. For what it's worth I do think the SM ones are a good representation of what he'd look like now-- a little less clean-cut, a little more tan, not always perfectly shaven. Et cetera. So yeah. /rambles forever

That being said-- these icons were all made by me & you are welcome to use them; I would appreciate it if you credited me, and especially if you'd drop a note here to let me know!

[Frankie looks a little older; a little paler, his hair longer than he usually wears it. When he talks, there's a funny lilt to his voice-- not quite an accent, but it's like he's been living elsewhere, has started to pick up the inflections and expressions of another place, layered over his more familiar tones.]

Never noticed, 'fore I left, I made it four years in this place. Stopped counting after a while. The time I had was all I had... didn't see a reason to think about after.

[He huffs a little sigh, half a laugh.]

I come back, turns out I still own that fuckin' bar.

[With his usual half-grin, he just shakes his head and turns off the feed.]

[ooc; replies might come from [personal profile] transposition but might not cos I'm lazy. He believes he's been back for about a week.]

[Mistletoe or no mistletoe, cold or no cold, Frankie goes for a run in the afternoon, enjoying what he can of the watery winter sunshine. He has errands he could be running, probably, but this curse is an obvious one and Frankie's not a fool.

Of course, he's outside, so it's not a foolproof strategy. During the day you might find him anywhere, though catching him might be a bit trickier.

After dark, down at the Raven, Frankie's tending bar. A rather crudely scrawled sign is propped up on the counter.

[The video clicks on, and Frankie is seated, looking serious and rather resigned, his arms folded on the table. He shifts a bit, somewhat uncomfortable, but doesn't look away.]

Halloween's done so I figured, maybe it'll calm down some, probably I should say something.

[He takes a breath, half a frown twitching his lip briefly.]

If something happened between you and me, one of those weekends, I'm sorry. That's about all I can say, 'cause as bad as I feel about it... wasn't me. Curses fuck everyone up.

Don't think there's much I can do to make it up, but we can talk if you want. If not, that works too.

[Truth be told he doesn't want to talk about it, but he can't shake the feeling that he should be trying to do something for anyone he hurt.

Without another moment's hesitation he reaches forward to turn the camera off.]

Can't count this kinda thing as a curse, I guess. Wonder how long it's sticking around?

Not into the giant pumpkins or any of that weird 4H crap, but the junk food's not bad. Even if I feel kinda like an idiot trusting it. No one's turned into anything weird, far as I see. Yet, anyway.

Can't believe it's October already. Shit.

[The feed clicks on with a long moment of silence. Contemplative silence; or really, resisting silence. But the curse wins out.

They always do.]

I don't wanna talk about dying. Don't wanna think about it, either, but I do. Not all the time but more than I want. Knowing how you're gonna go doesn't make it easier; and I dunno when, just whenever this place is done. Nothing strange there, I guess, except I got used to not worrying about it. Life's a bitch and then you don't die, Ed said. He's the only one I ever knew who it bothered.

Knowing why helps a little, doesn't mean I'm not till fucking terrified. You'd think maybe it wouldn't be scary, knowing how, but it just means I know it's gonna hurt. Not a thing to change that. Doesn't help knowing it's a good cause.

[There's a long pause.]

The first time-- when I died, I mean-- it hurt like fuck but it wasn't so bad, or maybe it's just you forget after a while. Everything gets a little numb. Had ten years of that. But it was easier-- I mean, I knew I'd come out the other side anyway, wasn't the same as this. Everyone told you it'd hurt but not how bad-- didn't wanna scare me off, maybe. Getting bit wasn't the bad part, at least not for me. Not when I knew it was coming. Knew the girl, even. But after-- you lose enough blood and your body starts to panic even if you didn't mean it. And once you're infected that's it. That's what hurts.

Coming back was just as bad. Fuck, and I had it easy. I'm the only one who didn't fucking light myself on fire.

[Another pause.]

I'm gonna be torn to shreds when I go. There's your fucking story, City. That's all I got.

Y'know, half of me wonders if these guys making trouble-- the ones who want to take down the Deities, or take over, or whatever-- have the right idea. Don't wanna get involved in it-- I got too much I won't risk for a maybe-- but there's a point to it. City's a pretty fucked up place, any way you look at it. Take right now, I'd like to shut up and go about my business but no luck.

Thing is, there's people worth staying for and I'm better off than I'd be anywhere else-- hell, better off than I'd be even if things didn't fall apart at home, probably-- but the place? The curses? I mean, don't think anyone likes that, but it's not fair. Sometimes I think it's an okay price to pay, but that's just me. Plenty of people'd have it better anywhere but here. People here longer than I've been.

Wish I wasn't still talking.

Either way... I don't know. I don't much like the way things've been lately, worse than usual. Still don't wanna pick a side, though. Isn't just that I don't want to risk losing what I've got, it's...

Well, I got enough shit I regret. Don't want to take on any more if this goes south.

Been a little more than three years, I guess the novelty of being able to go out when it's this bright and hot out's kinda worn off. Can't complain. Even sunburn's not so bad.

It's fucking awful out there. I guess this is a curse-- these weird two-day ones, if that's what they are-- but I hope the rest of the summer's not this bad.

Can't say I've got that much, just what I need. I dunno what the bar's worth. Not bad, I'd guess. Not like I can sell it, so I don't know why it matters. Better than I ever figured I'd do so I can't complain.

Rest of my shit's not worth much. All together maybe an Indigo. Probably includes the furniture, not that most of that's mine really. Probably would've bought a car at home, or something.

Got a couple things worth having, can't put a price on those. Heartbeat's a good start. Eden, too. Couldn't buy either off me for everything else in the City.

[But really, the door should've been shut, shouldn't it? In the second it takes that to occur to him, his guest has already crossed the room. Frankie pulls back with a gasp, his glass falling and shattering.]

You've got a tan. Suits you, [says the ghoul, pale-eyed and laughing, its gums shriveling back from its fangs.

Frankie ducks as the ghoul swings at him, managing to upset the camera. It falls to the ground, showing a glimpse of a bloodied and sickly-looking girl, before turning to static.]

[Unlike most of the dirty laundry the curses air on days like these, this video takes place right here in the City-- specifically, the men's shower at the hospital. Here, among the haze of steam, two men are pressed against one another in one of the stalls, bare-chested, water-slick, and unaware they're being filmed-- or, perhaps, indifferent.

Frankie Dalton, expression a bit glazed, lifts his chin as Robert Chase leans against his chest, swaying slightly as he murmurs something that doesn't rise above the beating hiss of the water.

Slowly, leaning into Frankie's arm, the doctor sinks to his knees.

And that is where this video ends.]

[Frankie Dalton, looking just a bit more unkempt than usual, is leaning against a worn wooden post, taking advantage of the scant shade of the overhanging roof. His right hand is tangled loosely in the reins of a tall bay horse, its head bent to drink from the trough at his feet.

Though his stance is relaxed and unhurried, Frankie's eyes are on a small collection of wanted posters tacked to the wall behind him, slightly weatherworn but still readable. None of them look like him, which is a relief; still, he keeps studying the sketches, face carefully neutral, while the horse drinks, until the video times out.]

[Later that evening, the big dog saunters down to The Raven; he's not working (he rarely does, these days,) but he likes to wander down and look around now and then. He manages to shoulder the door open and walks in like he owns the place, trotting along with an appraising eye.]

He eats slowly at first, looking distracted... a little sad. His mind is elsewhere. A very distant, elsewhere, in fact.

Suddenly, as though a switch has been thrown, he's devouring it, stuffing food into his face like it's pissed him off. Though obviously angry, he still looks... detached, eyes focused on something that isn't there.

Been more than a month since my brother left. Didn't expect him to come back-- couldn't tell you why, sometimes people do-- but a month's pretty much when people give up hope around here.

Don't know if anyone's bothered opening. Been thinking maybe I'll sell it.

I'm pissed off about Ed, though. Guess he's back where he needs to be... Doesn't make me feel any better, though.

A glittering blur of shattered glass and spraying liquid flies past the camera. Another shower of glass and liquor follows; and another; and another. Audible between and above the crashing bottles is a man's hoarse voice, roaring obscenities, half the time incoherently yelling at nothing apparent.

As he sits, not looking at the glass or at the camera, the picture seems to darken; a slow and melancholy flush of blue tones creeping into the shadows, almost imperceptible in the half-dark of the shuttered bar.

Abruptly, he slides the glass towards the device, letting the camera linger on the liquid for a moment before turning it off wordlessly.]

This room is dimly lit; only a little golden bleed from the kitchen off in the distance and the intermittent flash and flicker off the television will help you pick out the figure sprawled on the sofa, beer in hand. It's not just the lack of light that bleaches the color from him, though... )

[The scene? A perfectly normal evening at the Raven. The quiet clinking of glasses, the occasional murmur of people drinking, is broken by one cursed bartender-- acting the Mad Hatter and embarrassingly dressed the part-- shouting,]

CLEAN CUP! Move down!

[Someone at the bar whines: Aw c'mon, really?]

Hey, I didn't make the rules! Move.

[Annnnd everyone visible onscreen grudgingly slips down to the next stool. It's easier than arguing with a crazy person, after all.]

[ooc; action or network is fine~ he is basically out of his mind.]

[There's some indistinct, just below the threshold of hearing murmuring, answered by the one and only Frankie Dalton:]

No, tourists don't get free drinks.

[And after a moment, in response to some unheard indignant complaint,]

Not my problem, man.

[ooc; late post is laaate augh. Doubt they exist, but please no duplicate Frankies. There's no real way to spoil him so. <3 10000% BACKDATING FRIENDLY FOREVER]

I don't wanna talk about it, ok, but I've done some bad shit in my life. Real bad. Kinda thing you don't make up for.

Don't think it's the City's business, though.

[ooc; his biggest weakness? lots and lots of guilt.]

Short on rent this month, with the bar closed so long. Got a plan, though.


Answers to Nathan. Far as I can tell he doesn't do anything useful, but hey, you never know. Mostly house trained.

Bidding starts at one green.
