matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Winchester father and sons)
Day one of our family vacation: the three of us went to Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, MA. Before we actually got there, we stopped in the downtown part of Gloucester and got a pizza at little mom and pop pizza joint across from a lovely park near the shore. Watched the boats on the water and a drawbridge going up to let a cabin cruiser pass through down a canal. Then when we got to the beach someone's very friendly minature bull mastiff kept sniffing around us, looking for some of our pizza... and then some seagulls came lurking around! "Rats with wings" to quote one of the characters in "Finding Nemo"

And my dad has added a row of lit plastic jack o'lanterns on stumps along our driveway as well as a light-up purple spiderweb.

The "Supernatural"/MxO crossover is actually developing a plot. Before, I just had an idea for the climactic fight scene, now it's taking on shape:

Following a tip from a friend of their dad, the Winchester Brothers travel to Capitol City to take on a vampire known as "Diabolique". Their success catches the attention of a guy named "Fafnir" who appears to have ties to the Mob: he wants the brothers to take down a reaper-like being which has supposedly been decimating the poorer elements of the city. At the same time, they've crossed paths with an odd but friendly little girl who calls herself Sieges, who takes an interest into their work. What they don't know is that they've walked into a Mob family dispute that could cost them their grip on reality as they know it...

I came out of my self-imposed sabbatical from the MxO just to see if Kabell, one of the co-founders of the Devil's Advocates and Sieges's adoptive father, had jacked in since my little girl needed a father-daughter talk. Well, they never got the chance to talk, but they *did* end up raiding Zero-One Archive together, which got Sieges's mind off her worries for a bit.

A little background: "Diabolique" (Not her real name), the god-moding Mary Sue vampire-player, came back to the game and is trying to rampage again. Problem is, her antics pissed off a *LOT* of people, so now we've all got the eagle eye on her. She came crawling to Anubis and I with a big plan to take over the Matrix, take down the Merv, and make herself queen of "the new Matrix". The two of us -- maybe make that four of us, if you count Marrith and Morraeon -- basically snarked her down. In the end, Anubis gave Sieges permission to tear into Diabolique, getting revenge for the times that Diabolique has tried to mistake Sieges for a snack bar. I'm amazed that at lvl 49, I managed to get Diabolique down by a third of her health.

Now I have to put up with Sieges/Morraeon chanting "Reapers rule! Vampires drool!" in my headspace...

In other news, my dad is currently puttering in the yard, drilling holes in plastic jack o'lanterns and putting fancy-schmancy blinking Christmas lights in them.
