Notes: When I saw the [community profile] stayintheroom prompt, I honestly thought this story was going to be about Ivy--and it is, but it's more about Charlotte. Also, I don't play video games and it occurred to me after I wrote it that Grand Theft Auto is probably not multiplayer. But it delights me to think of Angel and Laura playing a violent video game together.

Name: Clare
Story: Moonsisters
Colors: Caput Mortuum 4, Livor mortis; Moonlight 19, Sidereal; Antique Brass 17, There is no reality in which I would live in South Dakota.
Supplies and Materials: Fingerpainting (one scene in this actually made me sick to write), canvas, oils, charcoal, pastels ([community profile] darkfantasybingo: sacrifice), novelty beads ("We deserve beauty, love, respect, admiration, kindness and compassion. If we don't get it, there will be hell to pay." -- Margaret Cho)
Word Count: 2,968
Rating: hard R
Warnings: (skip) Multiple murders, sociopathic POV character, attempted rape, animal abuse.
Notes: Funny story about this character. I distinctly recall naming her after someone my friends and I hated when I was writing at least one version of the Moonsisters. However, I can't recall a single thing about this person we hated other than that her name was Maureen. I asked my best friend about it a few days ago, and she didn't remember anything, either. So I guess she didn't make that much of an impression! Hopefully this incarnation of Maureen is a more interesting villain than just someone to name after someone I hate; she's certainly more three-dimensional and way scarier after this story.
