We knew it would happen eventually. One way or the other, if you're reading this, I'm gone.

I realise it's blatant emotional manipulation to make this my last wish, but. It's the only way there's any chance you'll do it. Don't close yourself off. You'll want to--I would, if I were the one left. It'll seem easier. Maybe it'll seem like the only possible way to keep going. But don't. I always wanted to be the one to make you feel anything, but maybe I'm getting soft in my old age. If I'm gone, I don't want you to never feel again.

I haven't got many possessions in Death City right now, and I doubt that will have changed. Matt gets his pick of anything left, and if Gemini has come back and remembers, give him his damn ants back. I trust you to dispose of anything else. There's something for you under a loose board in my closet. It might be good I'm not here to be embarrassed about it.

That was a lame attempt at a joke, sorry.

[This is Mello doing some stalling of his own. When the writing resumes, it's smaller and messier.]

When I landed in Death City, I never would have imagined we'd be like this. That we'd become so much more than the sum of our parts. You have meant more to me than anyone, from any world. I don't regret a single thing. I wouldn't even if I were the one left behind.

Q: Send me home right this instant.

A: That's not a question. And if it were, the answer would be no. BREW drags people in and sends them home with no regard for their personal wishes in the matter.

Q: Where the hell are we?

A: Nevada, in the United States. That's in the human world, if you're not one. Early 21st century Earth, if you are. If you're from some world without Earth, this is the human home world here.

Q: Am I dead?

A: Probably not. If you were, you'd know. This isn't Heaven or Hell. This isn't any afterlife at all, and if you are dead in your world, it doesn't appear to matter much.

Q: I didn't pay attention at orientation, what's the deal with the war?

A: First of all, you're a dumbass.

Like the places a lot of us come from, this one's at war. The enemy's the witches, who are big believers in killing them all, never mind if god's going to sort them.

No one's going to make you fight. Not even if you get a partner, which I recommend. Regular weapons don't do shit against Kishin eggs, and you do not want to be caught with your knickers down around one. Figuratively speaking.

Q: But how do I learn if I can't ask questions?

A: There's a library. Use it.

Q: I used to have all the money, and now I don't anymore. What gives?

A: Get a job.

Q: What's the madness wavelength?

A: It's the main weapon of the witches. 'Madness' is a slight misnomer; it doesn't make people mad, it amplifies any unstable or violent tendencies they already have, and the shitty thing is, when you're under its influence, what you feel makes perfect sense.

Q: Is it possible to resist it? How?

A: You're going to hear a lot of bullshit about being centred and calm that won't help you at all when you need it. When the witches are pumping that crap out at you, for example.

The consensus is this: resonance is the best way to fight it. Practise beforehand at whatever works for you to stay mentally balanced, and get used to trusting your partner. Calling on both of those mental habits when the shit hits the fan is your best bet. You can steady yourself, and your partner can anchor you, when things are working like they ought to.

Q no one will think to ask, but ought to: What bullshit should I look out for here, other than witches?

A: 1. Excalibur. Seriously, fuck that guy. 2. Occasional weird shit goes down that can't be traced to madness or the war. Like having random urges to hug everyone, or being unable to tell even white lies. Or visiting a fucked-up alternate future. If things have been quiet for a couple of weeks, get suspicious and watch your back, is all I can tell you.

Q: Is it true that kissing your partner improves resonance?

A: I don't know who started this myth, but when I find them, and I will, I am going to shoot them.

Q: Why are you so defensive about that last question?

A: Because shut the fuck up, that's why.

Q: I'm a Weapon. Should I throw myself down some stairs to force myself to transform?

A: Obviously.

For [community profile] soul_campaign :


backtagging: Absolutely! I can be slow if work is really busy. And a note, because I feel rude when I just leave off tagging sometimes: where a normal person would say 'thanks for the info' or give some other signoff, Mello usually just disconnects.
threadhopping: Sure!
subjects to stay away from: Almost anything is fair game, but check with me if, for some reason, you want your character to know Mello's real name. He guards it pretty closely.

flirting with this character: Ha, you're welcome to try!
touching this character: Ditto!
hugging this character: He'll probably not react well, but go for it.
kissing this character: Again, should your character be crazy enough to try, knock yourself out!
fighting this character: Sure!
injuring this character: Minor injuries are fine by me. He's cruising for a bruising sometimes. >D Clinic-necessitating injuries are usually A-OK, but let's plot in advance.
killing this character: Since death is permanent in SC, gotta be a no.
using telepathy on this character: He's pretty strong-willed, but doesn't know how to consciously put up mental shields. If you want to, let's talk.
warnings: He sure swears a lot.
