Given their connection, it's likely that Krays will realize that Ephebe is cracking under the pressure (and guilt, mustn't forget the crushing weight of all that guilt). Or at least that she needs a reminder that her inner demon needs to not come out to play right now. :)
Preferably before she scares Mel off....
I beg, nay, plead and implore -- use IC descriptions and scenes to build this info up!
OOC is so ...soulless a means to convey such.
In this particular case I am giving an ooc aside to let a character know something that the player doesn't have knowledge of, but the character does. Maybe it should have gone via PM instead, but *shrug* since we were already discussing the character and her motivations it didn't seem like it was something to be secretive about. And putting it in discussion meant less typing of tags than putting it in an ooc spoiler in the game thread...so many brackets, so much toggling between the different keyboards. It's the one thing that can be a real pain in the behind about typing on an iPad. Sorry, but sometimes I have lazy moments too.
