✞[ XIV. ]✞ Station of the Cross

 
[ † ] Shrill screams. Unearthly howling. Die...Die...Die...In the end they would fall before him in droves, their lifeless husks left in cross-shaped streaks of acidic blood. For who has assailed him and come off safe—who in all the heavens?

Swiftly he glided through the city streets, ducking in and out of sight, with the heavy crunch of bone and spiny husk of Lavos spawn beneath his heel. This was Madness. Slaughter. Retribution. Divine Glory. He was Reborn: The Saviour, making the new man from the old, so that he might restore the nature which had been corrupted. A monster of Divine Providence.  See, beside you I made Behemoth, that feeds on grass like an ox. Behold the strength in his loins, and his vigor in the sinews of his belly. He carries his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are like cables. His bones are like tubes of bronze; his frame is like iron rods.
✟ Job 40:15-18 ✟

Built for one Purpose. For one purpose he would Serve, and for one purpose he would die. Like straw...Like straw they were..And he, who would patrol the streets would be the gale to sweep the sinners all away. For neither was he man, nor beast. Should any approach—Should any dare—he would be as iron to straw, and bronze to rotten wood. Intrepid he was made. All, however lofty, would fear him; he is king over all proud beasts. [ † ]

[ooc: Father Anderson has made his reappearance Post-Nail in the series. He will be a Divine Punisher, seeking to accost any that cross paths with him that appear even remotely vampiric/demonic.]

[ ✟ ] O people of Zion, who dwell in Jerusalem, no more will you weep; He will be gracious to you when you cry out, as soon as he hears he will answer you. The Lord will give you the bread you need and the water for which you thirst. [ ✟ ]

No longer will your Teacher hide himself, but with your own eyes you shall see him,
While from behind, a voice shall sound in your ears: "This is the Way; Walk in it."
| Isaiah 30:19-21

"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen." )

Residents o' Discedo: Thaes es Faither Andersoon. Ef ye ar' en need o' sanctuary, coom tae St. Peter's church. Thaer es shelter fer all who migh' seek refuge.


[ooc: Father Anderson is offering shelter to anyone in Discedo who will need it. The church has been reinforced to withstand fire and the undercroft can be used as a bomb shelter. Since it is made of stone it is arguably one of the most secure buildings in Discedo.]

✞[ XI. ]✞ Station of the Cross

In a dream, in a vision of Night [ when deep sleep falls upon men ] as they slumber in their beds It is then he opens the ears of men and as a warning to them, terrifies them. )

If then there be for him an angel, one out of a thousand, a mediator, To show him what is right for him and bring the man back to justice, He will take pity on him and say: "Deliver him from going down to the pit; I have found him a ransom."

And his flesh shall become soft as a boy's; he shall be again as in the days of his youth.


For in their mouth there is no sincerity; their heart teems with treacheries. Their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue. Punish them, O God. )

How long will you set upon a man and all together beat him down as though he were a sagging fence, a battered wall? )

[ ooc: Okay, okay. Took me long enough, I know. Basically, Anderson has been aging while he's been in Discedo due to the suppression of his regenerative powers. So he shaved it all off. : > At least, all his facial hair. Poor Scotsman. Also, this is sort of back-dated to the 5th.]

 Feathered winds come dance with me Lift me from the ground. )

Ah danced en th' marnin' when th' world wis begun,
Ah dance en th' moon an' th' stars an' th' sun,
Ah came daun frem Heaven and ah danced on earth,
At Bethlehem ah had ma' birth.

Dance thaen, wherever ye may be,
"Ah am th' Lord of th' dance,' sayeth he,
'An' Ah'll leid ye all wherever ye may be,
An' Ah'll leid ye all en th' dance," sayeth he.


Tongues of flame come jump with me Ye purifying fires, Tears from seas, come sing with me )

✞[ III. ]✞ Station of the Cross

 [ † ] Head down, shoulders hunched, the imposing man retreats into the heavily creased folds of his cassock, shying back into the shadow of St. Peter's when the sharply biting wind threatened to tear the fibres of his skin. The rising, first-quarter moon shone silver in the reflection of his spectacles, darkening skies encasing him in its chill.

Over the past week the city's weather had remained frigid enough to where even the blankets on the Archbishop's bed had ceased to keep him warm, and the frost adhered to stone, sinking deeper and deeper into his bones the more he'd spent time outside and pushing himself to take care of his ward though he did not immediately realize it.

The Priest's lips parted to expel a trail of mist from his hot breath, and he inhaled, wintry air pushing forcefully into his nasal cavities.

Sneezes quite suddenly, covering his mouth to stifle a fit of coughing. [ † ]

O'...O' bother.

[ooc: The suppression of his regenerative powers has made his immune system equivalent to that of a normal human. That being said, he is equally as vulnerable to illness as anyone else. While he's normally able to withstand a good deal of punishment, the combined efforts of not sleeping well, not eating well, and neglecting his own needs has finally taken its toll.

This is for a comment-log set back to this thread, but feel free to respond.]

† Isaiah 10:16-20 †

[ Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the Sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. ]


Behold: A Storm Cometh )
