We're a crime/mafia roleplay set in the present-day Chicago.

After bombing the harbour, the new gang in town, Enigma, all but declared war on the most powerful family in the city, the Bianchi Family. Police struggled to capture the culprits and were well on their way to build a solid case against the Bianchi, but their hard work was set back once the police department was bombed. Now, the war between the two sides is more heated than ever, and the casualties only tend to grow.

UPDATE 10 - 05/2017 There's...something rumbling, or perhaps brewing, among the people of Chicago.

UPDATE 09 - 04/2017 May is almost here, and we've decided to say goodbye to April with a shiny mini event! Thank you Bishop for the amazing idea, and for everyone who's getting involved!

UPDATE 08 - 03/2017 March is here! A few layout modifications jumped out of nowhere, nobody panic! Spring cleaning is also over and as such, claims and canon roles have been opened as we cleared out the inactive. Stay tuned for IC and OOC news & announcements!

UPDATE 07 - 02/2017 February is the real MVP as we're welcoming so many new members and characters to Bloody Dice this month!! We love you all, already established members, new and returning! ♥

UPDATE 06 - 01/2017 January, you ugly thing. Regardless if you're buried in snow or melting under the sun, we wish you a great year ahead and may all your dreams come true! Good luck to everyone going back to school, work or hanging on trying to survive.

I’m not angry with you, I was being playful. I stabbed you with my fun knife

JACOB PIERCE





PEACE
A few messeges and Jacob spent the rest of the day lost in thought, mulling over what Ruby said and what she didn’t say. He still thought she must hate him, at least a little bit, this was the first bit of dialogue between the two of them in a couple of months and that was telling, but if she wasn’t willing to speak frankly how could he even begin starting to apologize? Now they had a meeting, at the park… to say Jacob was nervous about it would be an understatement, perhaps it would be the opportunity to apologize to her and maybe save their friendship.

The rest of the week passed without a hitch, Jacob left his apartment exactly once to buy Murder some food, and also for himself, but it was mostly because of Murder. Before he knew it, it was Saturday and Jacob was dreading it. He had zero motivation to leave the house and he didn’t understand why Ruby needed him to go outside when his house was perfectly fine to have a conversation.

It was just past 10am and Jacob was melted into his couch still with his pajama pants on, he wasn’t dirty, but he was unkempt, his curls wilder than usual and his beard needed a blade. He didn’t feel like moving even if he realized Ruby would be there soon. But he reasoned with himself that she would probably call before she came, right? So he waited, Murder was happy to wait with him too and he obsessively kept checking his phone for any signs of her.

RUBY BLACKWOOD




ain't no rest for the wicked
I'll be the villain you can blame
On a scale from 1 to 10 regarding how much Ruby liked this situation, or just...how much she liked the 'general' situation, she was placed somewhere around, what, -38? Under 0, obviously. She just didnt like things right now and found herself slipping away into solitarity rather than having to deal with feelings and emotions.

Her own period of pushing people away had been somewhat cut short though, with some sudden texts. Not that she had expected them, really. Jacob was a retreated person, she didnt even think he'd notice her being distant. And as for Max, the fact that he didnt reach out once said enough anyway (not that she had been the nicest to him either, but it was still her who approached him). Ruby had been keeping herself busy with basically the only thing she had for sure - Enigma, and just studying in general to put her college diploma to use. Besides, her emotional trifle had also distracted her greatly, and as such she'd be greeting Jacob today with an arm in a cast. Little accident on the field, but no one could blame her for having Jacob ( 's state) on her mind.

This Saturday's plans resumed to meeting up with a depressed Jacob, and it just lowkey proved to Ruby that her feelings towards a certain situation werent totally unreasoned. It said a lot about things when something changes, then someone falls into a depressed state - and she was aware that even in her thoughs she was being vague like a petty child. But she wasnt petty.

Ruby texted an "almost there" to Pierce's number as she walked up to his apartment complex, and as some granny walked out she didnt need to call and have Jacob open the main door. Minutes later, she was knocking at his door like a civilized person, feeling both awkward and nervous, and perhaps there was plenty anxiety in the mix too. Ruby took a deep breath, trying to calm down her fast heartbeat somewhat, hands tucked in her pockets awkwardly. She really hoped Jacob will want to go out somewhere, to the park or a cafe or something, because Ruby didnt want to leave Jacob to brew in his own juice like some miserable poop. If his oh-so-great date or whatever couldnt take care of him, it said enough and Ruby didnt need to be hinted at it twice to play her role of an actual friend, despite everything.

PEACE
How much time had passed since Jacob sat in that couch like a sad potato was anyone’s guess, but he was snapped out of his trance like state by the buzzing of his phone. It was Ruby, and dread got on the pit of his stomach. It had been so long since he saw her face to face, what if she changed? What if he changed? Too much had happened for things to remain the same and Jacob was scared to see the result.

Somewhere along the way Murder had nestled himself on Jacob’s lap and was happily purring away. Jacob slowly stroked his fur, the phone had been put between the couch pillows. There was no reason for him to move, Ruby wasn’t there yet. The fact that he wasn’t dressed for going out yet was a detail he chose to ignore. Ruby would be there in what? Fifteen minutes? She probably was just leaving her house.

So when minutes later he heard a knock on the door, he was understandably surprised. He stared at the door for a couple of minutes, as if he didn’t quite believe he heard right, but Murder wasn’t such a useless wallflower, the cat dashed to the front door and meowed loudly like a needy baby. Jacob got up from the couch like an old man with arthritis, groaning and sighing all the while as he dragged his feet to open the door. The lock chain was in place as he peeked outside and was greeted by the sight of Ruby, looking all lovely and pretty, a contrast to Jacob’s unkempt beard, tangled hair and the bags under his eyes. Murder didn’t waste any time as he dashed outside and started rubbing himself around Ruby’s legs, still meowning. “Murder! Don’t be so needy!” Jacob said feeling embarrassed.

He left Murder outside and closed the door, just long enough to undo the lock chain and open it fully. He looked at Ruby awkwardly, shifting on his feet before gesturing her to come inside. “I thought you were gonna take longer.” He confessed sheepishly. Gosh his house was a mess, why did he agree to let Ruby come over??

    Even though JACOB PIERCE was the one to open the door and peek to see who knocked, it was Murder who greeted the woman first, all warm and lovely like the nicest of cats. He meowed loudly, making Ruby feel all wanted and loved by the pet who was affectionately rubbing against her. "A cat!" She bent to scoop up the cat with her healthy arm, awkwardly keeping the arm in a cast close to the cat too so he wouldnt fall. Since when did Jacob have a cat?? He was so handsome, all black and with these gorgeous yellow eyes - now that Ruby thought about it, Pierce was definitely a cat person. But she never pictured him as actually owning a pet. With the furry friend in her arms, she felt much lighter, less anxious. Still very much so, though.

    And then Jacob opened the door properly....and he looked exhausted and was in his PJ pants. Only his pants, to be more exact - fact that took Blackwood by surprise. "Yeah, I was-- I'm, uh, punctual-- it's uh--" She kept losing her focus in speech, cheeks red at the sight that she was honestly not trying to block out. She just hadnt seen a topless Jacob coming, and it was embarrassing.

    The woman motioned a bit with her cast arm at Jacob's body, tongue tied in a knot. "You look--shirtless." Which she realized might have sounded odd, and folowed suit with a "Not that it's a bad thing-- or that I mind, I mean, uh, Hi! How are you?" The blonde took a deep breath and moved her eyes back on Jacob's face with her strong willpower. She tried brushing a strip of her now short and wavy hair behind her ear, while the cat picked her cast as its pillow.

At the very least, Murder wasn't an unwelcome greeting as far as Ruby's reaction showed. She was a cat person, he thought, Murder was meant to be a gift for her too, and he wondered if Max ever went through with that idea. He remenbered the cop saying he would find another cat for her but then he didn't hear much of anything about how that went. "He likes you." He said lamely, she certainly looked surprised to see the animal. "That's Murder, you never met him, did you?" It had been so many months, Murder wasn't even a kitten anymore, it was unbelievable that she didn't know he existed.

He was confused with her sttutering. Why would her being here before the expected time be anything to stutter about? He tilted his head to the side curiously until she pointed out that he was shirtless. Right... he forgot. "Oh, I'm sorry. I wasn't expecting- Sorry." Damn he was making her unconfortable already, though he couldn't phantom why, it wasn't the first time she saw him without a shirt. Briefly he remenbered that one time they kissed but he shook his head and dismissed the thought, that was in the past.

"I'm fine" He wasn't all that fine, he was apathetic at most. "Get in, give me a few minutes so i can change. We're still going out, aren't we?" He stepped aside to let her in his mess of an apartment. Granted, it could be worse, but to him it was still too messy, just like him.

    No, she hadnt once seen Murder the cat before, perhaps it showed just how much attention others paid to keeping Ruby up to date with things. She couldnt complain though, as far as she knew, Jacob just always had a black cat named Murder who she just didnt know about. She shrugged the topic, but kept the feline in her arms.

    Uncomfortable was one word, though Ruby didnt really mind the view. She wished she could cover her burning cheeks with a veil of golden hair, but alas it was not possible anymore, not with her hair short now. "No, I was early, it's fine" Not early, but ehh, they were an awkwardfest for now.

    Jacob invited her inside, and she stepped in with the cat still in her arms, closing the door with her leg. "Yeah, we are. I heard fresh air does wonders." For them both, really. She was managing at the whole 'putting up a mask' part, trying not to show how much Jacob's mood really matched hers. She wasnt really here to worsen his state. "The park's fine, right? I cant think of any other place to go to." The bar was another option, but it was too early in the day for that, and with alcohol at hand and two sad idiots at the counter... alcoholism wasnt the answer. That should be Ryan's motto, now that Ruby thought about it. Not that he'd follow it anywhere.

    She seated herself on the couch, looking around the apartment in curiosity. There was just so much she didnt know about Jacob, and so much he didnt know about her...how did they manage to stay such strangers? She regretted that, was anything like getting to know her friends better on her new year resolution list? Not that she could remember it. There were the bullet points about telling both Jacob and Max that she had feelings for them...but Max managed to fuck that up altogether, as he always does with other people's plans. She lowkey found it very selfish - not that his selfishness would stop her from trying to kill her anxiety and regret by completting her damn list.

    "You dont have to dress up too much, it's just a casual walk!" She shrugged before he could come back, still getting an impulse to either hide in the ground or run away forever every now and then.

Jacob didn’t particularly care where they were going to go. If it depended on him he’d stay home moping around, but he was pretty sure that wasn’t a viable option, so he shrugged. “The park is fine. Tress, dirt all the things worth to go outside for, right?” He said trying to convince himself that this was good for him and failing. At least she wasn’t going to take him drinking, the last thing he needed for his moody ass was to get drunk and mope even worse. He had already hid all the liquor bottles in his house from himself.

But then he went to change, and to Ruby was in luck, since he even deemed to put on a shirt along with a fresh pair of pants and shoes, don’t even mention a comb, who needed combs? It took him ten minutes and then he was back on the living room, his shoulders slouched with his hands in his pockets and a slight pout that couldn’t be seen due to the thickness of his beard. He really should shave. But he’d do it after he was back home. “Don’t worry, I didn’t dress up. Can we go or are you too smitten with Murder and changed your mind?” He smiled slightly, Ruby seem to really enjoy cats, and Murder in particular. He wouldn’t mind letting her play with him all she wanted while they stayed.

    Trees and dirt was...pretty much..it, in a park, true.. It made Ruby reconsider the destination, as Jacob didnt sound too thrilled for it. This meeting was going to be something, for sure.

    Little (big) Murder was such good company, Ruby kept hugging him, and he seemed to enjoy being held against her chest like a big baby. Her heartbeat had calmed down again too, after the unreasoned (lie) rush of embarrassment and perhaps something else that had earlier made the woman stutter at a certain sight. The memory of the one and only kiss hadnt stopped haunting her.

    "As tempting as cat company is, I think we should both switch to human for at least a few hours." Not at all had she started closing into herself again..but it wasnt like many cared anyway. Ryan did, and perhaps Stella, but that was about it. She had mostly avoided day to day conversations altogether, unless Enigma business required her attention. Bare minimum human interaction?

    The woman stood up, sliding Murder off her cast as she put him on the couch and petted him one last time, as she felt like a blue moon would probably pass before she'd be invited at Jacob's place again anyway. [b["Such a good, handsome boy."[/b] And with the last pat, she was all ready to head out again and face the world. Truth be told, she wanted to wait to at least see herself in the park with Jacob before asking him why he was so..down. On the same train of thought, it seemed like the park would slowly become their talking place, just as it happened last time, after they met up with that...oddity of a girl, what was her face..Natasha? Nat_alia- Natalie? Who cared? Definitely not Ruby.

Switching to human form sounded so unappealing right now. Humans were icky and they always crowded the streets and made too much noise. He made a whinny noise of protest that was between a hungry cat and a crying duck. “I guess that’s what you’re here for, isn’t it? So I can feel a little more like a real boy.” And less like a ghost, he didn’t add. He thought it was going to get better for this… slump. But so far no such luck. Maybe today with this trip he’d be cured of this. It was annoying.

At least seeing Ruby enjoying his cat was cute. Murder was always so tame and friendly with everyone. A little attention whore, he was. “He likes you.” He petted murder once before leading Ruby outside. He’d wait her to lead the way down, stopping long enough to lock the door. Once outside, he’d look around, the park they went to last time wasn’t all that close to his house. He wondered if it would be the same or somewhere else. “Did you drive here?” He asked.

She could comment on the "make me feel like a real boy" part, in a lascivious way, but admittedly she wasnt feeling in the right mood. Or any mood. For his sake, however, and maybe making him laugh at the ridiculousness of the innuendo, she tried. "I didnt prepare for that, but I'll keep it in mind for another time."

Once they were out of the apartment, and she had to say goodbye to the handsome little (big) kitty, the two could get going on their merry way to the...park. Ruby felt so lucky that the weather was nice, so they wouldnt have to fear the rain or wind nor melt under the sun.

"I didnt, I heard it's a little frowned upon to drive with an arm in a cast, but looking back at it, it couldnt be worse than my usual driving." And the black humour returned, her bestest friend. "Do you wanna get ice cream from the park? Like the last time we went there." She had fond memories in that park, yes: them two enjoying ice cream together, walking hand in hand, despite it probably not having meant anything for him, and the hug and cheek kiss she gave him last time. Perhaps Ruby saw the park like a portal to the past, and thinking about it was not a bad thing at all.

Arm cast, Jacob is an idiot, of course she wouldn’t come driving with that cast. But then again, it’s Ruby, she doesn’t really care about car safety. In this case she does though, at least she admitted she was a terrible driver, last time she mocked him for being afraid of becoming one of her pigeons. “Right. Duh” He said awkwardly, why was talking to Ruby so awkward, why was he like this? He opened and closed his mouth to say something witty, but nothing came to mind.

And then, the moment had passed and Ruby was asking about ice cream. “Uhhh sure? Why not? I think last time I had ice cream was at the park, back then.” Which was a shame. They were already outside now, walking leisurely down the street towards the park. Jacob squinted at the shining sun, his eyes not used to the brightness anymore, which probably said something about him. “Sooooooo” he said still awkward, dragging the word like he wasn’t sure how or what he’d say. “How have you been? I feel like this is all been about me so far. You still didn’t even explain how that arm got hurt.”
