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.

Name: Clare
Story: Moonsisters
Colors: Caput Mortuum 6, Putrefaction
Supplies and Materials: none
Word Count: 333
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: gross dead stuff
Notes: I was looking for something on my mom's computer today and found a lot of my old files from high school and earlier (which I proceeded to email myself and then delete from her computer, because why does she need those?). I rediscovered this series, which I worked on a lot, even though I only finished a few stories. I remembered how much I loved them and decided to write about them again. This time I'll probably make them high school or college students instead of eighth graders, and make their nemesis less stupid. And their significant others: also less stupid.

Anyway, this piece is mostly just an exercise in characterization. I'm kind of pleased that I managed to remember all their names and a little bit about their personalities without actually having read through my old notes and stories. I definitely plan to post more, including stuff that explains why they're called the Moonsisters.

Mods, may I have a tag for Moonsisters? (Good lord these notes are longer than the story.)
