Hey guys!

So, as you may have noticed, Raleigh's now at -1 soul :D

Basically, this is why, and now that she's sufficently drained, I figured we can plot to see how to fix it! I know Joel and Mira and Coop will be involved in some way, but it's open to other people who are interested!

Here's the deets:

So, a long time ago (roughly 25 years), Raleigh's dad was up in Siren Cove. He got himself into a bit of a pickle (mostly he ran up a really big bar tab), and to get himself out of said pickle, he ended up jokingly promising his first born's soul on a napkin to a witch who worked in a local bar.

He didn't know she was a witch. And he didn't know that it was actually a binding agreement. He's not that horrible of a guy, except... with what happened next.

Fast forward 24ish years, and Raleigh's dad basically has been having a shit ton of nightmares that basically were pushing him to get Raleigh up into Siren Cove. He figured that if she went there but kept quiet who she was, she'd be safe, the nightmares would stop - that's why she ended up dropped off with an envelope of money and went by Emily Watkins. Her dad honestly thought he'd solved the whole thing, tied it up with a bow.

Problem was, she didn't keep who she was quiet. In fact, she opened a local business! The witch who was promised her soul is now older (60s?) and was frankly delighted to realise that Raleigh's soul was intact and basically this shining beacon of energy. She went into Orchard House a bit more than a month ago, talked to her, shook Raleigh's hand - oops, her ring scratched her, and she picked a bit of hair off Raleigh's jacket, and there you go.

She's been quietly siphoning off what is, to her, the soul she's properly owed for a $300 debt while Raleigh sleeps, making Raleigh turn into a less self-aware Regina George. Raleigh's got about 5% of the good parts of her soul left, before the witch starts siphoning off the bad parts, too.

She lives in the relative suburbs and keeps her head down. I expect it'll take a bit of time to figure out where she lives, but then there's a literal glowing bottle that's what she's drained - and once they find it, some witchy things should probably have to happen to actually get it put back where it belongs.

Also, if anyone's evil / nefarious who wants to be involved, it's a pretty hefty powersource. All that I'm looking for is that in the end, Raleigh gets back a majority of what was taken, if not all. :)

So, yeah! That's what I got. I'd love to see people get involved if they're interested! Raleigh currently thinks Joel may have hit his head or is high, since she can't see her own aura and thinks she's acting just fine.

PS, Oscar is magical and is basically flipping his tiny corgi shit over his owner losing her soul. In case you wondered.

At this point, Joel would have at the very least texted people he knows are close to Raleigh to let them know something is VERY wrong. As far as his knowledge of her friendships go, that would be Coop, Les, Levi, Mira, Davin and if he's missing anyone, he's sorry, he's just not very good at keeping up with anything. XD

I need to catch up on intended threads BADLY, but I think at this point Mira will know something is pretty amazingly wrong too -- I've always meant her to be pretty integrated into this. So Joel will definitely get a text back offering Research Girl help.

I totally miss Raleigh and Fabrice's friendship! He'll absolutely want to help any way that he can. :3

Would you want Hana for any of this?

I know we chatted about using Hana's empathy magic being a part of it somehow, but that was a while ago and then I wandered off and got distracted...

I don't know how much you want any of mine to fit in but tbh if there's a huge powersource hanging around town that you need to find, Milo is your guy? No promises it will be easy for him to hand over haha but it could be something interesting for him to get involved in if you want idk

I'm not sure exactly how you want Coop to fit into all of this, but I'm happy to play whatever part you'd like me to!
