Sometimes it takes a bit of crazy to find perfection
Sebastian looked about himself. The world was not the world he had left behind when he was banished in Hell. Now that he returned things seemed to have been changed. The mental connection he had to his followers had been severed when he had been banished so he would require new members. The area was buzzing with activity but he had no idea who anyone was. He also had no idea how long he had been banished for, it had been so long. He would need information. He would also need privacy to obtain it as by the looks of things, everyone was running about the place.

He simply needed to await for his opportunity to actually obtain information. Asking took too long and people often lied when given the opportunity. Only when you could just delve into their thoughts and memories would you truly be certain of the answers they have given you. That is something that Sebastian was very much interested in. He was also interested in growing a new church and a base of followers as well. It would take time to rebuild but he would do it. To that end, he would also need to acquire a new location to house such followers when he obtained them. A location where they could all gather.

Grim Reality was an unusual name but for someone like Sebastian Blood it had caught his eye. And had lured him into the small building. The inside was quaint in his opinion. It was nothing grandiose about it – simple. Shelves filled with multitude of books as well as stacks upon the floor that had not been picked up or simply didn’t have a place on the shelves. The air was musky with the scent of old paper, dust, and a touch of mildew that was typically carried upon old books. He reached down and picked up one of the books from a stack. Hard cover. He flipped it open and found himself looking down at characters he didn’t recognize. A language he didn’t know was before him. He thought he’d encountered most of them in his time on the planet. It would seem he was mistaken.

Immortals, or those that claimed the title, were an odd breed.

Each seemed completely sure of their brilliance, illogically proud of halting the progress of her sister Time, definant in their ‘mastery’ of her own domain. Not seeing what she did; simple creatures clinging to life, obstinately ignoring the fact they were as trapped on the same web with every other soul simply because they had skittered further from the spider.

Death smiled at the creature that slid into her presence, normally she cared not to disguise what she was, anyone who had touched or been touched Death in the past would see anything from fleeting hints of her true vistage to the full form of what they expected from their universe/religion/species. It was odd but the one overriding form was that of a the grinning skeleton, sometimes kind, often uncaring.

Unless he willed to see more than the surface, Sebastian would be greeted by a woman of that middling age where time had granted maturity yes not etched so deeply to be read. “Hello. Were you looking for a place to rent?” Brilliant blue eyes blinked fussily behind a pair of cat-eye glasses, her chosen form clad in a soft grey cashmere sweater, buttoned only at the bottom to expose her prim librarian inspired pinstripe vest. An A-line skirt of dark grey completed the outfit that was chosen with a nearly glee filled delight at the image she presented; to-wit- a fussy, forgetful, slightly prissy woman who would be scandalized by everything Sebastian Blood was.

What could she say? Death was easily amused by mortals.

While true death was something that had been avoided by Brother Blood through a dark ritual that granted him power and immortality – it had been at the cost of his soul. He had been touched by death in that instance where his mortal spirit was exercised from his form. The second time was the closest that Sebastian Blood had witnessed death and that was when he was banished to Hell. The trip had been painful; however, it bared fruit in the form of more power. Becoming the Avatar of the Red Kingdom and having the power to simply break through the domain of Hell was something worthwhile. He wouldn’t need fear of the banishment once more.

Crimson hues masked by blue shifted to the other side of the shop as a voice filtered through the aisles until he found himself staring at a woman. He closed his eyes for a moment then reopened them. The visage of the middle aged woman was there for a moment before the vision seemed to melt away until. Someone a slightly younger, fairer in skin, but eyes aged with a wisdom unmatched by even the oldest living being. It was an image he had seen only twice in his centuries of living. His head tilted forward and his eyes narrowed slightly before he flicked his gaze across the shop once more.

Perhaps the vision before him was nothing more than his imagination? Then again, he wasn’t one to imagine such things. Not when he had so recently made it out of Hell. He moved toward the counter in which the woman stood. His hands folded together behind his back as his lips curled slightly into a grin. If before him truly was who he was seeing, the person before him had a great deal more power than him. To have such power, to have control of death itself was something far more powerful than any god may hope to hold to.

And that fact was something that amused, fascinated, and interested Sebastian Blood. ”Hmm, rent.” He glanced up and around to examine the store thoughtfully and all the books around. An interesting arrangement. Death the real estate saleswoman. His gaze returned to the vision before him and his eyebrows lifted up ever so slightly, ”This place seems adequate.”

Everything died. Gods. Mortals. ‘Immortals’. Even so call Eternals. Only Death remained. When the last universe crumpled into dust, when time stood still. It would be She who closed the Book, doused the Candle, rang the Final Bell.

The mousey spectacles reflected light, hiding her eyes in that moment where she shifted seeming, Black replaced grey, brown, a car drove by, headlights slid across her, in one heartbeat a young woman dressed in black with Ankhs dangling from her ears, the next a beautiful yet fussily dressed middle aged woman smiled at him.

“Well this is the first time in a long while someone has offered for my shop.” It was not just books, but scrolls, curios, tiny mechanical dolls, pretty colored rocks filled the space.

“What do you have to barter?” Her smile held the amusement of age humoring a child.

Hmm, he was expected to purchase through bartering? That was an interesting concept since he was used to just taking what he wanted or being given what he wanted by his followers. He had a severe lack of followers at the moment. He was hardly ever a man of money or had need of thinking about it. Then again, the being in front of him brought up the idea of bartering which implied it was an open negotiation on what he could pay with.

Still, the concept amused him so. Bartering with Death. He hummed his amusement. He knew that Death was not someone he could threaten because one could not kill Death. He knew that he could not harm Death either. Does Death even bleed? Was it possible to make Death feel anything? He was actually far more fascinated and interested in Death than he was of her shop. It was the first time he would have a chance to speak with Death where it wasn’t a brief moment before his passing.

”Well, I do not intend to kick you out of it. In fact, I would prefer you to stay with the building.” Sebastian stated as his hands unfolded from behind his back. They settled on the counter and he leaned forward slightly, ”So what would the lovely individual in front of me find appropriate in value for such an arrangement.” He could not control or defeat Death but he wouldn’t mind keeping Death near to study, observe, and better understand such a being.

In Hub there where a few common currencies; but in general one bartered for goods and services, selling to one of the major merchants for house script and using that in the markets.

After all gold made a easy substitution but could be worthless in one universe and unknown in another.

Death could bleed, be captured, held, bound. She was vulnerable to the Mythos of the world she inhabited. If Sebastian ever met the man with his face he could learn of a way to bind her.

Or at least one of her aspects.

Her smile widened at the compliment; “It would depend on how long. And what you are offering.”

She seemed pleased by the compliment or gave the illusion of being pleased. He hummed lightly upon her question. What she would barter for depended on how long the arrangement would last. His head tilted to the side slightly and his eyes crinkled together lightly as he found further amusement. Death seemed like a sweet little delight. Why people feared Death in his universe was beyond him. Then again, he didn't have a concern for a lack of existence for a great deal of time.

"I would be pleased if it were a permanent arrangement. However that is much to ask for you to decide upon right away. So perhaps a trial run is in order. Perhaps you simply will be pleased with my being here as company. Or..."

He became thoughtful for a moment. What could one offer Death when it was endless and everlasting. What could Death desire that she could not acquire on her own? "Perhaps a life.

The emotion that lit the endlesses chosen vistage was closer to humor than pleasure, but there was a kind of pleasure in humor was there not?

“Permanent is such an undefined amount of time. Till my end? Till yours? Past that? Till this world is absorbed by the end of all things?”

Life was not for her bartering, souls, death even was not truely what she craved; though she played that game as her sister Fate required of her. “And whose life do you barter?” Her cherubic smile held not a hint as to its desirability or lack thereof.

"Permanent until we deem it no longer desired." It left the specification of time off the table and left it up to fate. One or both of them may not desire to maintain such an arrangement anymore. Sebastian may decide that it was not worthwhile, Death could decide that it was not interesting enough.

Sebastian laughed lightly as Death took his offer to a literal sense. He supposed it should have been expected but as Death, she was never short on lives. She was constantly in the business of Death. Surrounded by it. Chained by her duties of it. He shook his head slightly and he leaned across the table, his lips twisted up ever higher. "You collect enough lives on your own. You need not another offered to you by me." He stated before he straightened up, "I was making reference to your own life." He gestured at her. He had studied what he could of the Endless. There were so very few details regarding them but he knew there were a lot of rules and they were always at work.

"What I'm offering you, is the experiences of a life. Not the act of collecting one.""

“You desire to live in my shop, until such a time as you do not and you offer-“ her playful smile sharpened “the experiences of Life. And how shall you deliver them?” She asked leaning her chin on an up turned palm.

He was naive if he thought she’d never played hooky in the endless eternity of her existence.

The Death he spoke to at this moment was but a single facet of what he/she was, a grain of his/her consciousness in this moment in this chosen form. Which was how it was possible to trap,halt or even destroy these individual aspects of Him/her. But nothing could truely bind ALL of what he/she was.

Sebastian knew much but there was still far more that he did not know. Unfortunately he tended to forget that there was plenty he had yet to learn and that, while he has lived a great deal of time, his existence thus far was but the size of a small sentence in the book of all existence. Entities such as Death he knew very little about but felt like he was able to be charming or enticing enough without further knowledge.

Sebastian leaned forward and mimed Death's stance, causing them to be drawn closer while he matched her expression. An act of playfulness. He hummed lightly upon the question she posted. It was a fair inquiry given that he was offering to give her a life. "By personally working to getting your desires and curiosities seen to in regards to life." It was a bold promise but Sebastian was also an extremely patient individual.

"For instance, what is something you find yourself curious of that you've not experienced or have not experienced enough in order to gain enough appreciation for?"

It was good he spoke to this aspect of her, that the one he had met at his own death; both were kinder, more libel to be tolerant by creatures such as he than many other versions of her would show him exactly where his error lay. Or simply ignore him. Which for something like Blood was perhaps the worst slight that could be done to the man.

As he leaned in her vistage would shift, sliding to reveal a grinning skull; “Who do you think I am?” She asked, threads of humor laced through the question. “What do you think I have been disallowed from experiencing?”

Sebastian's lips curled into growing amusement upon the grinning skull that faced upon him when she asked who he thought she was. "You are temptation, a pull of curiosity." Even if Sebastian didn't know much about this entity; conversation was a telling thing. It granted information if one paid enough attention. Even by drawing assumptions about certain individuals it provokes corrections to be made and thus, a better understanding. The reaction he had been giving by Death allowed him to believe that Death may not be held back from experiencing whatever she/it has wanted.

His stance straightened up from the counter and his gaze drifted to the ceiling. He lifted his hand up to tap lightly against his lips thoughtfully. "You have not had my company. Not truly. That is something you have not experienced." Sebastian stated before his gaze resettled back on Death before him. "Some of the most valued experiences is to have experienced the company of individuals. It is something even I know as a truth and I'm not one who really cares about allowing the free will of others in general."

After all, he had thousands of individuals controlled by him through his mind the last time he had walked among the Earth. They have all since been freed of his control when he was banished from Hell.

“Truely?” Her tone implied hevily that she HAD indeed known him, spoken to him previously. “Where do you think you are?” A cross roads of universes, where one could easily meet another version of you self waking down the street.

And Death exists everywhere.

Now it was true this aspect of him/her was freer than many others, this was indeed her self ‘playing hooky’ while still maintaining her duties.

There had been times, places, deals made with women and men poised upon bridges, buildings, to bind herself to their wholely mortal form and live a life blind to the greater calls that inundated her every instant.

“Perhaps a smaller bargain.” Death smiled at him once more a middle aged woman with too knowing blue eye. “Shall we play as Shaherazad? Every day or night you must entertain me to earn your living the next?”

She left it deliberately unclear if she meant his actual mortal living or simply where he laid his head.

"Having knowledge of an individual is not truly knowing them" Sebastian pointed out. Just because he had learned some aspects of Death and had encountered her before did not mean he knew her. Death may be everywhere at all times but Death was constantly moving, attention was constantly shifting. It would be bold of him to assume that he had been granted enough of Death's focus that she actually knew him.

She offered up a different idea to the bargaining table. He would have to entertain her each day or night in order for him to earn his living. There would be difficulties with such an arrangement given that there may be times he's gone for days. He supposed when he built up his followers he could entertain her through one of them like a puppet.

Until then he would have to see to it in person. "Very well." Sebastian seemed to agree to the arrangement. It would be difficulties to discern what actually entertained Death but he also enjoyed a challenge himself. "The risk I'd well worth getting to know you, Death. It seems this strange place has many opportunities that were out of reach when I previously walked the mortal plain."

Of course if he was gone he would not have to earn his resting place would he? Death in this form felt little moral angst over the creatures plans; his subjugation of other mortals was her Sister’s Look out, up and until she was pressed to move in one respect or another.

“Shall I be kind today?” Gracefully gesturing to a chess board laid out by her hearth, implying that amusing her in this respect could be his first task.

“You believe you have returned to the mortal world?” Her laugh exposed the long column of her throat, Head thrown back in a moments amusement.

Death seated herself, grinning, always grinning as she gestured for him to join her. “So shall I ask why? Is it my home? The artifacts that you might find? The items of power, souls bound, destines determined, the great book where all fates are recorded? Or do you wish a more intimate relationship with Death?” The fire played tricks, shifting her curves into skeletal caverns, her mousy clothes sliding in the light to ripped black leggings. Between every moment she was something else.

When Sebastian blinked now sitting before him was a Asian man dressed in a white suit, the almost softly amused grin on her expressed now with a thread of maliciousness on his lips.

“Death-“ he began his deeper voice sliding along Sebastian’s soul; “is not a lover to be taken lightly.”

Sebastian glanced over in the direction that Death gestured to see the chess board that had been laid out. A game of chess would entertain Death? Sebastian would have assumed that the whole bartering experience would have already entertained Death. He decided to humor her regardless rather than point out this aspect.

When he mentioned the mortal realm, Death questioned if Sebastian believed he returned to that realm. Brother Blood had wandered the strange place. "There are plenty of mortals who walk. It may not be the realm in which I originated from; but it appears to be a mortal realm to begin with." Sebastian explained with a simple shrug. He had no reason to believe that the realm he wandered currently was not a mortal realm. The only significant thing he had a seen from the realm was Death being a real estate agent.

He shifted toward the chess board and stood on the side that held the black pieces. Death posed the question as to why Sebastian had made the barter. Brother Blood flicked his gaze back to the entity and watched as the vision of Death that he was familiar with shifted to that of an Asian man in a white suit. The immortal's lips curled up slightly before he chuckled lightly at Death's warning about being a lover not to be taken lightly.

"We have yet to establish that type of relationship, my Dear Death. I don't care much for the surrounding texts or the building itself. But I do need a building for future endeavors; however, the greatest gain I have seen thus far, is the opportunity to be close to you. Observe. Learn. There isn't much that fascinates or captures my attention these days I'm afraid. But you always have. Perhaps I may have the same effect on you." He paused gestured to the white pieces on the chess board, "White has first move."

Skeletal fingers slid the king's pawn out; “Oh?” His smile held a temptation where his female aspect held humor; Death was seductive, a lover to many, the last embrace, a final cold kiss to take you into the long night. And this his male form reflected that side of his Mythos. “What do you hope to learn by mear proximity?” Death was in no manner an innocent, if Blood expected to trick or seduce him/her into a fatal weakness….

Well he would be poorly disappointed.

“I make bargains every moment of existence, how fleeting is the entertainment when your pet brings a toy for you to throw?” He answered Bloods unspoken thought.

“So what about my power is fascinating to you?”

Sebastian's eyes watched the skeletal digits shift forward the first piece. The immortal shifted his first pawn forward on the opposite side of the board. He hummed lightly when Death questioned what he could possible be interested by learning near him. "What do you suppose I hope to learn? Death is everywhere. It's far easier to assume you already know the answer." Of course, that was another assumption - one that he was going to settle on.

Sebastian hummed at the question of the pet. "How satisfying is it to control the pets around you? To pull their strings? Fleeting if at all. Death is pet to no one, correct? Do you know what it feels like to be the one to bring the toy to your master?" Sebastian's gaze flicked up and looked to Death's face upon the question. It was not a question designed to take as foreshadowing or an omen. It was general curiosity. Further information that may shed more light and understanding of the entity in front of him.

"It's not your power that fascinates me but power in general. The greater the power the greater the attraction." He was not ashamed of this statement. It was natural to him and something he constantly followed.

A metallic clink announced both the appearance of a glass in his hand and the fact that he wore a ring. “Death has no master.” There could have been quiet rage at the presumption, or curiosity of where Blood was leading to. As it was it was a simple statement of fact. “Brother Fate and I work hand in hand; she spins her webs and I cut the thread.” That was the closest he came to being controlled by any entity.

“So.” His lips quirked up in a smirk, “you will find this realm a font of irresistible attractions.” He raised his glass wetting his lips, “Gods, Angels, Demons, and all manner inbetween call this place home.”
