The Safehouse

Visit My House

 

Nice to meet you...

My name is Jude.

That's not my full name though. I don't exactly feel comfortable giving that out freely. Of course, if you were in my place you'd be hesitant to hand out your personal information to people too.

Now I know you're probably thinking "But Jude, not everyone's bad. I'm sure your personal info would be perfectly safe with people, like me," and you're right. Contrary to what I used to, and still occasionally do, believe most people are actually pretty decent and understanding. I wouldn't say people are necessarily good as a collective group, but they're not half as terrible as I used to think. Decent. That's how I'd describe humans on whole.

I'm getting off track. Right.

The reason I won't give you my name, and why you would be wise to keep yours from me in return, is connected to my talent. What I mean by talent, by the way, is what most people would call a 'psychic power'.

Mine is pretty cool.

If I know someone's name, first and last, and I know what they look like, and they're able to hear my voice I can make that person do almost anything I want them to with a verbal command.



There are LIMITS to my ability, of course:


1. I can't make someone do something impossible, like breathe under water.

2. I can't use a command to keep someone from dying if they're critically injured. Nature will take its course.

3. I can't control people's feelings or thoughts, just their behavior. So before you ask me, no, I can't make someone fall in love with you, or make them fall out of love with someone else so you can scope them.

4. While my talent does work over electronic transmission - like over a PA or a tape recorder. It's not as effective as when I'm present on the scene to give the command to my target. There's a slim chance that they won't comply. Very slim, but still a chance.



Here are a few things I CAN do with my ability:


1. I can make people freeze in their tracks, no matter what they're in the middle of doing.

2. I can make my target go to a specific location, at a specific time, and do a commanded task.

3. I can command someone to actively ignore a situation. That's not to say they won't remember it - maybe a flash of color or a noise stuck out to them - but it can help to impair their attention to detail. It's sort of like that psychology experiment with the moon-walking gorilla.

4. I can command someone to do something they've never done before as long as I phrase the command properly. For example, instead of telling someone who's never been on a bike to 'ride a bike' I could instruct them, step by step, to grip the handle bars, sit on the front end of the seat, place their feet on the pedals, and after walking them through steering and pedaling, tell them to repeat the motion.



Here are some things I WON'T do with my ability:


1. I won't order someone to do things of a sexual nature.

2.. I won't order someone to take their own life, or someone else's.

3. I won't order someone to commit a crime.


These lists aren't exclusive of course. I'm constantly trying to expand my knowledge of my talent and it's limits.

I live at an institute founded in the mid-1900s by a parapsychologist and a scientist (who died before I came to the institute, so I never really paid attention to any details about him, which is a terrible thing to say.) A.P. Para-Tech is sort of like a combination school and science lab for people interested in the existence of paranormal phenomenon, and people like me, those with talents.

In addition to regular school work for Institute residents of school age, people with talents attend group therapy, group lessons, and individual lessons with experienced professionals (both 'talented', and not). The idea behind the lessons is to try to gain an understanding of the nature of psychic abilities - why they exist, how they work, why certain people demonstrate abilities while others don't, why similar abilities manifest differently in different people, and the effect the use of talents has on both psychics and others - and to teach people like myself how to control our abilities so we don't go off the deep end and hurt others.

We, the doctors at the Institute and I, don't understand where my particular talent comes from or how it works. It just does. So I can't really answer any questions you might have about that. Sorry.

I'm happy to answer any other questions you might have though. So hit me up. I guess. If you want to.


Wanna' chat?

Says someone with a life.
But, yes! That is a fantastic feature. I've never used it myself but I enjoy having it handy. I'm glad you can put it to perfect use though~

I MIGHT, ACTUALLY.
My mom is trying to prod me (literally - she keeps jabbing me in the side while I roll around whining) into jogging with her. She wants to sign us up for a 10k at Walt Disney World next year.;; She's pretty smart though, knowing that the way to get me to do a run with her is to bribe me with Disney things...

Oooh. Might I ask what you're writing?

Pffft. For some reason, that worked with something else I was looking at into making Horst some sort of Mary Poppins nanny for his future niece(s) and nephew(s).

... I keep trying to come up with something more eloquent to reply to that with than "WTF?!??!" but... Nothing.
You should give me her number to harass her yearly in return. Kehehehehe.

Not much... Way too much eating though, pffthah.;;
You? What are you up to now?

No dog. Just a Russ. Better than a dog.

I'm alright, thanks for asking. And I'm glad you're alright too, since I saw you had a couple of rocky statuses the other day. >:
-shares cookies with-?

Blue. Matches his eyes well.

Hee. I think Horst put him up to it. "Try it, you might like it." "No I won't."

It looks like he's fidgeting to get them to fit the way he wants.

Jude looks very lovely in blue, btw.

Happy to help!

Currently: Jude - Resident of A.P. Para-Tech, psychic, behavioral pusher, Pink-Ribboner
JUDE IS MALE; HE IS NOT A COP

Jude is stopped by a tall, tan, and shaggy gentlemen as he passes through the greenhouse area of the park. He could swear he's seen the other person around the neighborhood, although he can't remember where. The stranger introduces himself as Hector and, after a stuttered 'Hello', invites Jude to coffee. Jude accepts.

 

Can I help you?
