"You know what I really like that most people don’t? Waiting rooms. It’s a space where everyone is forced to be quiet and respectful of everyone around them. You don’t know how long you’ll be there – if it’ll be a swift passing of time until you’re seen, or if it will drag into hours lost. When you look around the room, the longer you’re there, you can see people’s true colours start to come out. Those that are impatient, those that are entitled, those who are in a rush. The people who are most comfortable in themselves, most happy to entertain themselves, are usually content being alone. And there’s a quiet power such a person possesses. The quiet ones deserve far more recognition for their patience and fortitude than people give them credit for."
Being an RN comes with its own sets of challenges and rewards, but doubling up as an Underworld Tormentor kinda complicates matters a bit.
Growing up, L always felt the call to help people in need. Naturally gifted as a psychopomp (as many Children of Hades are) and comfortable around death, decay, and misfortune as well as life, hope, and faith in equal measures, L has dedicated her Surface life to those stuck in hospital beds awaiting their final moments. She is genuinely compassionate towards her charges and attempts to make as much of a difference in those moments with them as she can. This, however, seems in direct conflict with L’s rank and station in Tartarus. How does one comfort and aid the living by day only to make them live through their worst nightmares after their passing?
While there are many Children of Hades who refuse to live on the Surface after their first shift into their Cerberus form, fully embracing their beastly natures, there are equally as many who live a double life and struggle to accept disparate halves of their nature. That said, Children of Hades are made of tougher stuff mentally in order to withstand some of the things they are asked to do. In this way, their lineage can at times both be a blessing and a curse. For L, she accepts what she is (a Child of Hades) and who she is (a registered nurse) as two very different but equally true facts about herself. She has certainly struggled with reconciling these two halves of herself, having questioned long and hard how she can do and be both things simultaneously from a moral perspective. But what are morals if not learned teachings passed down by one’s society? What happens when you are born into separate sets and ways of being?
L knows she is very much two sides of the same coin, but many never truly see all that she is. Companionship offers her a chance to truly be known in ways she feel she never could be back home. L hopes to offer a companion much the same: profound understanding.
If you’re someone who struggles with the darker aspects of your psyche, L says she’ll be able to help you understand your hidden and most buried parts with better clarity, and provide a safe space with her where you are free to speak your thoughts and mind. She can also help you see that you are not just your anxieties, your fears, your troubled thoughts, or your dark wishes, but that you are equal parts beauty and light as well. “One must embrace both sides to truly understand themselves. Besides, the only opinion that truly matters is the one you have of yourself.”
L also wishes to be clear that there are a lot of expectations placed upon her and her schedule is quite tight. To that end, she will need a companion who excels at telepathy that she won’t have to teach, as her communication will primarily be from afar with minimal trips to our side. If this is something you are comfortable with on top of everything else, then L can’t wait to meet you and get better acquainted.
