He heard the giggling of children as he ran through the parking lot, seeing their faces poking out from the backseats of the cars as he dashed past them, running from the baying hounds. Snow crunched softly underfoot as he ran, in a vain attempt to get away, from the Warden, from the Guards, the little faces in the trees, the tiny voices asking him why, why did he do it? The hounds were close now, he could hear their paws crushing the delicate flakes falling from the heavens. He stopped when he met the edge of the towering island, nothing past this but sharp rocks, worn to points by the raging ocean below. He could see the glint of the flashlights, the voices of the guards, the baying of their dogs. "With my death, I achieve immortality!" he screamed into the howling wind. The guards tried to stop him. "No, don't! We can help you!" they cried, to no avail. The man jumped backwards, into the roaring seas. With heavy hearts and bowing heads, the guards returned to their posts. -*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*--*- Welcome to the Howard J. Blunten Home for the Criminally insane, an island off the shores of New York, on what used to be Alcatraz. Here, criminals from the world over have gathered, deemed too mentally unstable to go to regular prisons. Here they receive treatment from Dr. Howard J. Blunten, a renowned psychiatrist, and his staff. The "guests" are well taken care of, and often allowed to live their fantasies, in an attempt for Dr. Blunten to understand the root of their insanity, so he can better treat them. Characters can have committed any kind of crime that would drive them to insanity, or have any form of insanity that would drive them to commit a crime. Like hallucinations. Please, no explicit details that would get this booted to the Matures. Otherwise, Patients (characters) can interact freely, so long as they stay in character with their chosen 'case of the crazies'. If you want any further information, please do not hesitate to PM me. Enjoy!
