West

The western part of the city is often home to the poorer residents. Here there is a grunginess that permeates the town from the graffiti on the once cleaned brick buildings to the broken and unmaintained architecture. Crime runs high within the western half of town, making it the home of supernatural gangs of illicit activities. Such activities are rarely reported, however, and most residents are distrustful of individual's of authorities, and often let the powerful supernatural beings sort things out amongst themselves. Be careful wandering the Western streets after the sun falls.

Black Market

Just like any city - Sacrosanct is not without it's deep, dark underbelly. Hidden in the graffiti-ridden streets of the West, behind closed warehouse doors, lies the Black Market. Forever moving, it's nearly impossible to find without knowing someone who knows someone. Anything you desire can be brought for a hefty price within the Black Market - be it drugs, weapons, or lives.

What You'll Find Here

Edge of the Circle

Cull & Pistol

Hidden within the dark alleyways of the Western Ward, Cull & Pistol is a dim, often smoky bar. With a small variety of bottled and craft beers, Cull & Pistol is a quaint little neighborhood joint. With its no-frills moto, the dingy bar offers little more than liquor, music from an old jukebox, and a few frequently occupied pool tables.

Bartender Raylin Chike

Noah's Ark

Resting upon the harbor, Noah's Ark appears to be little more than an abandoned cargo ship. Accessible from an entrance hidden in the shadows, The Ark is a veritable Were-playground that specializes in fighting tournaments for all creatures great and small. With both singles and doubles tournaments to compete in, the title of Ark Champion is hotly contested amongst the Were population. If anything illegal is going on in the city it's sure to be happening within the back rooms or behind the ring-side bar. Note: This is a Were only establishment. All other species will be swiftly escorted out.

Syn

Within the turbulent industrial district lies this club. The warehouse doesn't look like much on the outside but it provides a memorable experience from the state of the art lighting, offbeat Victorian-inspired artwork, comfortable black leather lounges, and the infamous 'black light' room. There is a wide variety of alcohol that lines the shelves of both of the magical and ordinary variety. It is a common stomping ground for the supernatural who want to let loose and dance the night away to the music that floods the establishment. Humans are most welcome if they dare.

Was it wrong to feel like bacteria growth was a reasonable threat to our safety? Maybe Kat found the idea mildly hilarious but I was mostly sure it was a real and present threat. I could practically see it. This shower had to have mould. I was certain of it. Maybe i'd been willing to ignore it during sex but I was entirely prone to ignoring a lot of things during sex. In the very least that shower presented hot water and I was mostly sure the heat of it would kill at least half of...god knows what else this shower could contain. Still, I suppose, I could hardly prevent that scowl that found my features as the blue gold of my gaze eyed the shower floor with some trepidation. Still, if Kat was willing to face it- I suppose I was too. In the very least she seemed willing to provide a distraction as she reached around me for that shampoo. Motel Shampoo. Maybe it was better. I didn't think too hard about that either. Christ, what I wouldn't have given for our own shower back at our own place. I'd hardly missed the way Kat hadn't exactly returned that 'I love you' and yet for now, at least, I was willing to let it go. Given the day we'd had we could both use the break. Those words weren't exactly...easy to say. Hell, I'd struggled with them at first and yet eventually she'd say them, right? She'd gone through a hell of a lot to save me today if she didn't care about me.

"Hmm? Oh, sure. Im going to pretend its organic"

That simper tugged at my lips, that amusement clear as I shifted to turn my back to her only for Kat to apply that shampoo to her hands before beginning to massage it into my hair and scalp. That actually felt...pretty damn nice. Maybe it was only for a few minutes and yet....for those few minutes, nothing else mattered. Not that hotel room or the bacteria or Viktor or even that utter lack of organics in the shampoo. A soft sound of satisfaction rose within the back of my throat as I lent back into her hands.

"You really are good at that you know."

I suspected she did know. I liked that closeness. I liked being near her. It had been far too long and the thought of being...away from her again made my chest ache. Maybe for just a moment longer I could enjoy that shower without thinking about how we were going to live for the next few weeks. I lent slightly forward to let that water run over my hair, washing the shampoo that Kat had applied from it before reaching up to push the water from my eyes. My free hand reached for that tiny shampoo bottle in turn before gesturing for Kat to turn herself around.

"This tiny bottle is only going to do like half your hair but since we are imagining tonight let's just pretend it's going to magically cover it all."

I applied what was left of the shampoo to my hands only to reach up and offer Kat that same head massage. God she had nice hair, then again, she always had. Using this sort of shampoo within it was almost criminal. One day....we'd have real shampoo again. God this must be how poor people lived. I easily ran my fingers through her hair, working that shampoo in before stepping back to allow her to wash it out in turn. I was reluctant to step from that hot water and back into the real world and yet who knew how much hot water this place even had. I moved to reach for the nearest towel then before passing on the Kat in turn, the both of us stepping out and into that bathroom as I worked to dry myself off. My gaze shifted as I bent to dry my leg, the blue gold of my eyes roving lightly over her figure. I would never get tired of that. Never.

"There isn't any chance Viktor might just....forget us is there?"
