Say What Friday

Greetings Earthlings....

It is Friday once again, which means we have survived another week. Yay us!!!

This week's quote is:

"Evil has an ordinary face. It laughs, it cries, it deflects, it rationalizes, it makes great pasta."

Have fun with it. ;)

Now, remember there are two days of the month left, so do not forget to update your numbers before Sunday.

This month's challenge will conclude on Sunday as well, so whip those bingos into shape.

We can do this. We are word warriors.

I'm dying... this quote killed me when I read it the first time. AND I FINISHED MY BINGO! I CAN WORK ON OTHER THINGS NOW! Like maybe that weekend challenge of Dreamy's from three weeks ago. :D

Um... I'm leaving now.

a RP bit involving Bruce Wayne (Gotham version) Kilgrave (Jessica Jones) and mentioning Matt Murdock (Daredevil). Nothing spoilery as it is all in the RP world ;)

*

Bruce had heard it said that evil wore an innocent face, that sometimes the most ordinary of guises, laughing, smiling, even crying, could mask a monster. In studying the life he might have had, his ‘canon’ as other clones in Havensport called it, it seemed that most of the evil his canon alter-ego, faced had been obviously bad. Here, in Havensport, the lines were muddier…or maybe he did not yet have the maturity and wisdom of age to tell the difference.

What he did know was that he did not like many of those on the Vasco Board of Directors. Graves most of all. Even over the video conferencing system, as the meeting had been today, since more than one member was away on end of summer vacations and could only spare time to meet over the video feed, Graves just rubbed Bruce the wrong way. He could not say why that was, however. Graves, like Bruce, was smooth, polished, visibly polite and charming, quite capable of conducting business in a professional manner that did not normally express how they thought or felt

But this business with Doctor Alvarez, about whether to allow him to return to work once the hospital cleared him for release, needed to be addressed. The man would have to endure several months of physical therapy to regain the muscle mass that had atrophied during his medically induced coma, but unless the coma and the burns had affected his mental capacity, there was no reason to believe the man could not return to his research in the newly reconstructed labs. His government employers were eager for his return but some on the Vasco board viewed him as a liability…even though it had been determined that he had not been at fault for the events that had transpired to cause the explosion. The debate about hiring a replacement, about who could possibly be qualified enough to undertake his projects, was one that the non-governmental members of the board were not going to be allowed to solve.

Whatever government projects Vasco was involved in, that Bruce had not yet uncovered, they seemed to feel a lot was at stake and dependent on Alvarez’ return.

Graves, it seemed, was not very concerned about that, so long as it did not undermine Vasco’s normal day to day runnings.

Then there was the matter of a new player on the field, someone with money wanting to buy into Vasco’s stock, someone that some shareholders, at least, felt might be a good counterpoint between Bruce’s youth and Graves’ aloofness. Graves, of course, did not want to share, and Bruce’s only concern was why this individual was keeping their identity hidden. No sales had been yet, no decisions chosen that would spilt the company five ways…Graves, Bruce, the government contractor board, the handful of public stockholders who would never sell…and this potential newcomer. For once, Bruce and Graves were on the same side in wanting to keep something from happening.

He and Matthew were going to have to shake some trees and see what fell out. He was not going to be supportive of anything being kept secret from the two biggest company shareholders. He did not want to get into the daily running of Vasco, but whatever this was, it was too important to ignore.
