[attr="class","blipstoplyric"]bad moon rising

[attr="class","blipstoplyric2"]I see a bad moon a-rising. I see trouble on the way. I see earthquakes and lightnin' I see bad times today. Don't go 'round tonight, it's bound to take your life. There's a bad moon on the rise. I hear hurricanes a-blowing. I know the end is coming soon. I fear rivers overflowing. I hear the voice of rage and ruin. I hope you got your things together. I hope you are quite prepared to die. Look's like we're in for nasty weather, one eye is taken for an eye. Bad moon on the rise.








[attr="class","blipstop22"]uh oh



It began with a phone call, when the year of 2019 had yet to end.[break][break]

In a dingy bar at the outskirts of Mossdeep, Zacharias took advantage of the mandatory evacuation orders to sit himself at the bar, waxing down a drink as a burner phone was nestled to his ear.[break][break]

“Can I get someone to come and check out my modem? My net's been on the fritz... and it needs a reset or some shit—I don't know, you're the tech guy,” and that prompted the interest in the conversation to change—from a simple tech-repair shop squared away in Lilycove City, Zacharias can imagine the man on the other line leaning forward as those specific words were spoken.[break][break]

“Can I get a model number?”[break][break]

Prompting him for the password.[break][break]

“Mhm, its an SB6120.”[break][break]

A pause. He sucked in a breath, wondering if that was the correct string of characters—it had been years since the last time he had indulged in this service. He had been a young man in Johto the last time he had called this number—and there had been much less shit going on.[break][break]

In the background, a television displayed the news from an incident that still ran fresh—the death of Silas Blackwell, and the failure of Fallarbor.[break][break]

It was time for a reset.[break][break]

“If the modum's overheating, it'll be harder to fix...” but that was not an outright refusal.[break][break]

“I'll pay for any extra expenses.” As the man spoke an address for their meeting, Zacharias would jolt it down onto a nearby napkin. When he ended the call, it came with a snap as he destroyed the burner phone by wringing it in his hands.[break][break]

“There goes my savings,” because services to forge a new identity were not cheap. “Now I gotta keep my nose clean for like, what? Months?”[break][break]

In a fit of frustration, he would light a cigarette and just let it burn uselessly as it was pinched between his teeth. “Fuck me.”

 after fallarbor, dominic puts caspian ellery to rest a second time. he folds the ranger uniform and leaves it on an unmade bed with the dead man's trainer card. he leaves the door to the abandoned slateport apartment unlocked. he makes a call to mossdeep as dominic sinclair and wonders when the name began to feel like it belongs to someone else.

the voice on the other end pauses, and dominic can hear the clatter of keyboard keys. dominic wonders if he imagines the almost mocking lilt in the operator's tone.

"i can maybe arrange a discount. we already ordered in some of the replacement parts for your modem."

dominic mulls over it silently but experience has taught him to be frugal. instead of thank you, he says "i'll be there in three days."

standing at the slateport docks, he throws the cellphone into the glistening waves with a violence that ripples under the skin and never quite fades away.

the ferry takes three days. he stays in his cabin and pores over the deluge of information fed to the public via the media, watching in awe and wonder as the rocket network blinks out of view. dominic only opens his door when his neighbours complain that they can smell his cigarette smoke through the air vents and don't you know that's against the ship's terms of service?

mossdeep is, for the most part, shattered, and dominic doesn't exactly blink. the electronics store is in a district spared the brunt of the destruction, tucked between a fish and chips shop and a post office.

dominic enters the small interior and takes his place in front of the register alongside another customer. out of the corner of his eye he sees dark hair and familiar features. he shakes his head and wonders how this is possible.
