I (holo) have to start this by saying that I love Dark, I really do. Hell, I think everyone but Sophie does. She’s got lots of skills. She’s basically the only one with any spacial perception. She’s graceful and inspiring. All the boys love her. She’s great with kids, and a pretty good teacher. She’s kept me from committing suicide more than once. She’s a great friend, but not such a good headmate.
She prefers to do her own thing, which is cool, but she sometimes keeps her memories from the rest of us. She ‘killed’ the one who responded to the body name, saying “she was a poorly fused peice of flux”. And while that was probably true, she had no right.
And she has impulses that scare me. She is pyromanical (not many of us like fire, and I’m almost phobic), which is okay when we need to turn on the stove and cook, but not okay when she wants to burn trees or houses (which we haven’t let her do).
She also wants to mutilate animals! We also haven’t let her do that. We hand it all over to Sleeper and we conk out on the spot, wherever we find ourselves. (In the middle of PE once, but we were on the bleachers)
She’s also OBSESSED with serial killers. While they facinate most of us, she is TOO INTERESTED.
But she’s not all bad! She’s a real person. She’s awesome at math, but doesn’t do well with history except for the more morbid fascits… Science excites her, again, in a morbid way. She’s got no real use for English, but loves poetry. She likes to laugh when the rest of us are struggling.
And she’s about the only one of us that likes to excersice. She very nice, very codial and pleasent until she gets offended. Then she just GOES OFF! I don’t let her front, but Mag will.
Dark really looks up to Muse, so I hope Muse can talk to her, and get her to work on some things, because I love her, and I WANT her to be able to front, but I can’t risk it! I don’t want her to injure us or anyone else.
This also makes me think there is a lot more to Muse than her caring face, but that’s not really what I’m talking about at the moment.
Dark is actually in a relationship, believe it or not, with Apollo, which suprised me a little at first, but now I understand. He seems to moderate her, but if they were to co-front, people would really be able to tell. I mean, there would be this HUGE change in personality.
So I can unleash the pair on the world and throw Sleeper up there to shut everything down, god forbid, or I have to come up with SOMETHING!
And PLEASE don’t think that Dark is just an angry, bad person. She really is great! She has a really keen sense of justice, and can achieve ANYTHING she puts her mind to. But she clings to her violent thoughts like Melencholia clings to her suicidal thoughts, and Illia hangs onto thoughts of cutting and being raped. We all have our crosses to bear, even Sophie. It’s just that Dark’s is the most distressing at the moment.
I want to get to see more of Dark, because she’s the one that’s the most frustrated, and is contributing to our depression. Which makes her angry… (insert explaination of viscious cycle)
Ideas anyone? I just don’t know where to start.
