Part 2: When the Battle's Lost and Won
Desdemona grumbled as she trudged through the dark tunnel, dragging the spoke-wheeled cart behind her. It tinkled with the sound of glass vials as it rolled over uneven ground.
The passageway was long and twisting and lit intermittently by small lanterns holding greenish flames. It was partly naturally formed - caves hidden in the earth, splitting away in forks that led up to hidden exits in the forest floor, or down deeper into the earth. The witch didn't use those ways. There was a strange magic above, and sounds came from below sometimes that she wasn't particularly interested in finding the source of. She'd put hexed barriers on all of them, for good measure.
The ways she did use she had at times needed to carve out for herself, boring through stone with potions and spells until she connected with another set of caverns. In a few places the ceiling threatened to come falling down, and in these areas branches and logs had been wedged into place to hold it up.

Part 1: When the Hurly-Burly's Done
Several months ago...
She wasn't really sure what was happening. Though to be quite honest, it had been some time since Desdemona could be quite sure of anything around here. With all the fuss and nonsense of the past however-long-it-had-been-already she had never managed to glean exactly where she'd ended up or how, but she had decided that this vile hotel and it's residents lacked the charm and culture to be located anywhere near her native England.
So Canada, maybe.
While initially she'd been wary of spies, it gradually became clear that no one in this place had any real interest in her, and she was left to conduct her work in relative peace. There was some kind of war on, apparently, and everyone was caught up in their own affairs. Though who was fighting whom and over what was another mystery entirely. At some point it had escalated to pandemonium, and her memory was a bit fuzzy after that. And now there was some sort of cl

ODOCT Round 5 Epilogue
There were several things happening at once that Aegypius did not care for. It began with the repeated and astounding incompetence of her forces. Once again, neither Light nor Kaiser had had any success, despite her earning against failure. Clearly, if you wanted something done right...
They'd been dealt with. Their infractions were a nagging annoyance, but she had more pressing things to worry about. Legs, for one. This story wasn't big enough for two all-powerful antagonists. Aegy assumed that was what she was, anyway - mass-murder wasn't really the stuff of anti-heroes. In any case, she'd need to be dealt with. Aegy could save Shiro for dessert.
Second, the hotel had upped it's game. For a few moments, shifting had stopped. Repairs had stopped. And Aegy's room slid back away from the hallway with the groan of cracking plaster. She had trouble looking through her Shades when she wasn't on her throne, but she could feel that much. It was trying to get rid of her power center before sh

ODOCT Round 5 Part 3
It was surprisingly light. Shadow had retreated with her prize to the wide open area of the ballroom, and was now giving the t-square some practice jabs and slashes. Despite it's size, the she had little trouble maneuvering the weapon. The weight of it seemed to change as she needed it to, balancing itself, turning easily in her grip.
She'd noticed almost immediately that the hotel no longer seemed to be offering her any sort of help. She assumed that was the reason her scroll was stuck at travel size. Not that it had done her much good up until now anyhow. Last time Aegypius had simply set the paper on fire with a thought, and there went her mystical ace in the hole, up in literal smoke. Since she'd woken up back in the hotel she had been thinking of ways to use it to better effect in a fight, but so much for that now.
But this, this was a weapon. It was also probably a declaration of war.
Shadow didn't necessarily want to confront Aegy again. But she also really, v

ODOCT Round 5 Part 2
"No, this can't be it. You've gotta check again!"
Behind the front desk, Veronica crossed her arms and scowled. "Look, this isn't a fucking art supply store. That's the only paper in there. Take it or leave it." 
Shadow looked forlorn. "But it's not supposed to just be a drawing pad, y'know? It changes into this scroll when-"
"No scrolls down there either."
"Yes, but..." Shadow sighed. It certainly looked like her pad. "But this is just normal paper."
"Boo-hoo. Look, keep it, toss it, I don't care. Just get out of the way so someone else can get their shit, I'm not doing this all day."
It was only then that she realized a small queue of characters and creators had begun to form behind her, and her face colored a bit. "S-sorry... But maybe I could just have a quick look myself?"
"Wouldn't recommend that, dear." Barlow came hobbling back into the lobby then, free of the box he'd left with but still looking burdened. There was a strain in his voice. "Everything's been moved do

ODOCT Round 5 Part 1
Aegypius paid no mind to the dark spaces and flashing lights around her as she sat on her throne, eyes closed and head bowed. She always felt focused here; the void was closer, her power stronger, her senses sharper. Her mind could reach far.
She could feel the hotel around her now. She couldn't hear it in quite the same way she knew Shiro could, but she could sense what it was trying to do around her - and it was trying to force her out. It no longer had any chance at stopping her space from existing, so it had begun trying to cut it out like an aggressive tumor. Outside, the brick around her room was exposed and cracked as it started to slide away from the rest of the wall. The windows that didn't exist inside had shattered and fallen away on the exterior, leaving crooked, splintered frames looking in on nothingness.
She could feel it trying to seal her door from the outside. There was some doubt whether it could be opened by anyone other than herself at this point - but that was oka
