Tuesday, December 31, 2019 Church Room Shieldmaidens Clubhouse New Orleans, Louisiana 9:44 PM CST
Preparations were at hand and not the ones the Sheidlmaiens MC had been expecting to be making on New Year’s Eve.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: They should be taking off now…
Angel nods slowly. This had been a curveball in the night’s plans.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: It’ll take how long to get out there?
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I think Jack said like four hours. Same to get back…
Angel nods slowly.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: So, like five in the morning?
Pondering this, Bullet does some quick math in her head and then nods affirmatively.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Give or take, depending on how long it takes to land, round everyone up and then take back off. I think they have to refuel as well so…
Angel manages a small nod in acknowledgement.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: So, five, maybe six?
Bullet nods and Angel ponders the logistics of what is about to happen. Housing eight extra people in the clubhouse, several of whom are famous would be a big undertaking.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: What all do we need to do?
Bullet thinks on things and then nods to the door.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Get the prospects to set up the guest rooms, see if we have any cribs laying around since Shay and Lena have small daughters.
Angel nods as she takes in the information.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: How old?
Bullet pauses for a second and then starts counting with her fingers.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Octubre, noviembre, diciembre… ¿Catorce meses?
Pausing, she goes over the numbers and months again before nodding slightly, affirmatively.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Sí, catorce.
Angel nods, silently noting things in her head.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: What about the Maguire Twins?
Bullet thinks about it and then sighs heavily.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: They will need to stay here. Their family will be here enough to keep them safe.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: They they discussed who will take them once it’s safe to?
Bullet shakes her head.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: No se, Ashley and Maiko have been caring for them since their parents were taken. Fi will have an opinion…
Angel nods pointedly.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: A loud one…
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Banshee is the only sister with none of her own but is also the most likely to acquiesce to the others’ wishes. She’s always been the most “team player” of them that way. Psycho I think will care for them but question if she’s able to parent three at once.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: She questioned...still questions whether she can handle one!
Bullet nods knowingly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Bruiser and Hairicin will likely keep their thoughts private at first though I would suspect they would both happily take them if asked. Bruiser is more likely to have that fight…
Angel swallows hard before nodding her agreement.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: I think if that fight happens, it’s likely to be Fi, Bruiser and Ashley with Psycho, Banshee, Hairicin and Khary all looking on. Khary might step in…
Bullet nods at the thought of Khary stepping in between his wife and sister.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Es la verdad... I can’t believe that would be a fun situation for him… su esposa y su hermanita...
Angel sits back in her chair.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: Should we be preparing for that?
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: What can we do? It’s not club business, it’s a family fight if it happens. It’s something they’ll have to discuss amongst themselves. I would say the only way we step in is if the parents try to take them away to Ireland over sexualities…
Angel bristles at the very idea.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: Would they?
Bullet shrugs yet again.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I do not think Maureen would, but Shen?
Angel nods slowly, almost resignedly.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: So the question is… should we be preparing to have to fight the Irish Republican Army over grandchildren the man has never actually met… over his hatred of his own daughters?
Raising her hands to try and calm her Vice President and girlfriend, Bullet
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: For now, we just get them settle here. Make them comfortable, keep them safe. If they are all coming here, something has happened within the Children of Nephilim and we will need to be on our toes here and everywhere we go in the coming days. The Coven will not miss a chance to move in on us if we are not vigilant. Pretty Ricky Stanton will do the same. Skrabz, Reaper, Gabriel Ohio and Dana Ellis will not fight themselves this weekend. I will get Gata and Sangre to be here and ready to check on the injured. We need to make sure we are all ready for this, things will not get easier any time soon.
Angel nods her agreement and then looks to the door.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: Taza!
Within seconds, Shieldmaidens Prospect, Gabriela “Taza” Carbajal, arrives at the door looking worried and curious.
Gabriela "Taza" Carbajal: ¿A la orden?
Angel and Bullet stand.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: Tell the other prospects they will be needed tonight.
Taza nods and Bullet raises a hand to keep her from running off right away.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Lo estás a haciendo bien, Gabi.
Taza smiles and nods to her President and elder sister. Bullet nods back and Taza turns, disappearing into the other room. Angel smiles at Bullet.
Angelique "Angel" LeRoux: She needed that, Ale…
Bullet nods grimly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I know, let’s go find Gata and Sangre…
Wednesday, January 1, 2020 Common Room Shieldmaidens Clubhouse New Orleans, Louisiana 3:11 PM CST
Bullet walks into the common room of the clubhouse still wearing her coveralls. She’d decided to go downstairs and work with her sister, Taza, on a special project build since this was technically a day off. As she walks towards the bar, she sees the heavily tattooed, raven-haired woman, Ashley Kenyon, standing next to a chair checking her wrestling shoes while also wearing warm-up pants and a sleeveless black Metallica “Kill ‘Em All” shirt. Bullet can’t help but smile at the shirt.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¡Buena camisa!
Ashley looks up and shrugs.
Ashley Kenyon: I hear you’re a fan too…
Bullet nods, sliding her coveralls down just enough to show the black Metallica “Harvester of Sorrow” shirt. Ashley nods her approval.
Ashley Kenyon: Nice!
Bullet shrugs back as she pulls the coveralls back up.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I play alot of them and Ekhymosis in the garage. Khary and Taza seem to enjoy it.
Ashley nods knowingly.
Ashley Kenyon: Khary got me and Bethy into them when we were youngins. He must have played the black album around the clock sometimes, got me in trouble at school when I started singing “The Four Horsemen”... the live version… in kindergarten.
Bullet starts laughing at the thought of little five-year-old Ashley singing, “Time! Is taking a shit on you, the lines that crack your face!” out loud in class.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Gata had a similar experience with me. She used to be a big Bobby Brown fan…
Ashley’s eyes go wide.
Ashley Kenyon: Tell me you didn’t start singing “Humpin’ Around” in class?!!!?!?
Bullet shrugs sheepishly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I did not know what it meant at all. I didn’t speak English yet.
Both women share a laugh at the thought of a tiny Bullet getting in trouble for such a thing.
Ashley Kenyon: Fuckin’ hell! Did Gata get in trouble for it too?
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Papá forbade her to play it in my presence anymore. So Cisco did instead.
Ashley’s eyes close and her chin falls to her chest.
Ashley Kenyon: God bless mischievous older brothers. Khary probably would have done it anyway with us but he would have tried to do it where our parents couldn’t hear it and sworn us to secrecy about it.
Bullet chuckles as she nods.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Si, I can see Khary doing that!
Taking in the look of Ashley’s attire, Bullet nods to the door.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Are you going to the gym here?
Ashley Kenyon: I was gonna go to one, yes.
Bullet shakes her head.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: The one here, next door. The one Shonn used to run and train us in.
Ashley just stares at Bullet, the look on her face telling Bullet that the tattooed woman had not even considered this possibility as an option.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I would be honored if you would come and train with us. Possibly consider doing what Shonn used to do for us some?
Ashley stares at her, visibly taken aback.
Ashley Kenyon: I don’t know, I’m not much of a teacher. Patience has never been my strong suit.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Even just getting to spar with you would be a big thing for us, especially Psycho and Banshee. Their brother used to train all of us, even Taza.
Ashley stares back at her.
Ashley Kenyon: I spose I will have some time on my hands being here all the time, won’t I?
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Gata and Sangre can come by often and help you with Maiko.
Ashley nods quickly.
Ashley Kenyon: They’ve been by. I don’t know how good a mood Twoey’s been in but, thank y’all for helping her. She’s been through a lot lately.
Bullet nods understandingly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¡Claro que sí! You’re family!
Ashley nods slowly.
Ashley Kenyon: We were there…
Frowning, Bullet glances around the room to see if anyone else is around.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: You were… where?
Ashley takes in a deep breath.
Ashley Kenyon: We were there… inside the house… that night…
Bullet’s eyes go wide in shock.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Both of you? You had to see?
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¿Los chinos?
Ashley cocks her head and Bullet nods quickly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Sorry, the kids?
Ashley nods, comprehension dawning.
Ashley Kenyon: They were hiding in a chest. The bastards ran off when Khary turned the power back on like fuckin’ roaches!
Bullet steps over to her and puts her hand on the other woman’s shoulder.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: You and Fi got them, si?
Ashley Kenyon: That was how Twoey got hurt. When we got them, there was a third guy. Baddest of them, he broke her leg.
Bullet nods knowingly.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Is he coming here?
Ashley shakes her head.
Ashley Kenyon: For the moment, he has his eyes set on bigger fish. If he gets them, then he might come here for us. If he does, we…
Bullet shakes her head, stiffening noticeably.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: If he does, we stand united. You will not stand apart. We are a family and we never leave one of our own behind! You have an army with you now, Ashley. If I have to, I will call my cousin Salazar and have him bring his manpower over as well.
Ashley stares at Bullet for what feels like years and then nods slightly.
Ashley Kenyon: Ok.
Looking down to her feet, Ashley seems to come to a decision.
Ashley Kenyon: Alright, let’s go see what y’all can do!
Bullet smiles broadly. It wasn’t every day a three-time world champion agreed to spar with you.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Thank you, Ashley.
Ashley nods, patting her on the shoulder as they start for the door.
Ashley Kenyon: Call me, “Ash.”
Friday, January 3, 2020 Warehouse Gym Shieldmaidens Clubhouse New Orleans, Louisiana 7:21 PM CST
The camera opens on Alex “Bullet” Carbajal standing near the wall by the door under the familiar black Shieldmaidens banner with the white lettering on it. In her ensemble of tight blue jeans, black tank top, black tactical boots and her Shieldmaidens kutte, Bullet start to nod slowly for the camera’s benefit.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Woke…
The word causes Bullet’s face to wrinkle as if she’s just smelled something that is so nasty she might just become physically ill. Bullet grits her teeth and looks dead into the camera.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Dana Ellis would tell the world she is just a little more progressive, ahead of the curve and in the know than everyone else…
Pausing, Bullet nods and raises her hand while closing her eyes to affect an exaggerated arrogance in her countenance.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Probably with her eyes closed and her voice raising slightly at the end so as to truly let you know that she feels she is better than anyone who does share her exact views and purity politics.
Her eyes open as she grits her teeth again, her entire body looking like she wants to retch and spit in response to the very thought.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¡Malparida Pelota!
Bullet glares harshly into the camera, her eyes starting to burn with rage.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: You look at me and you say you respect my culture but you do it in such a way that invites you getting to cancel me because you did it hoping that I would object to the way you did it, and you could then call me racist for it and thus worthy of being labeled something bad. You used racial stereotypes to give me an empty, fraudulent “compliment” hoping that I would say something to the effect of, “I’m not Mexican!”
Again, she looks as if she’s just smelled something so rotten that it will make her physically ill any second now.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¡Güevón!
Stepping forward, Bullet cocks her head interrogotivel;y, outrage and disgust co-mingling in her eyes.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Did you think I would not see? Did you think I would take the bait in public on Twitter like that?
Bullet shakes her head even as it straights up to glare into the camera.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I know you do that to others, get many caught in their own words. You set traps like that and then pounce and dismiss everyone else because you want them to get caught up in trying to debate you because if they do that, they are not concentrating on fighting you in the ring. You also know that many people are terrified of being labeled, of having certain ones attached to them and that is your greatest weapon.
She pauses and then shakes her head as she looks away momentarily.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Their fear allows you to play them like a fiddle because they have seen what happens when it is allowed to run amok.
She turns back to the camera, glaring harshly again.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I have had many labels thrust on me. I have had children call me things that would make you cringe but would also make you wag your finger at them. I have had los tombos pull me over and say things that would make your hair curl in places you do not like anyone to remember you have it and I have had wrestlers of all stripes dismiss me with other labels because they thought they could get inside my head and put me off my game…
A nod and Bullet’s hand curls into a fist.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Just like you do. and do you know what they meant in the end?
Bullet shakes her head.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: Absolutely nothing! They meant nothing because I gave them no meaning just like i will give your attempts to cancel me nothing! You cannot hurt me with them because words do not hit back.
She nods, motioning pointedly to the ground
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: So let’s cut the shit. ¡No mas mierda! ¡Si no paras de ser un culicagado te voy a cascar!
Her eyes flash furiously as she nods her question.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¿Entiende?
Her free hand moves up to allow her fist to rub up against it.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: This is not about being woke or anything else that goes on outside those ropes. When you and I step inside the ring, any other problems I may be having go out the window because it is time to show you that I’m not somebody you can just cancel with words! As I said before, words don’t hit back. I do!
She looks to her first and then to her elbow.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: I have knocked out many with this...
Slowly, her gaze moves her elbow back up to the camera.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: We enter the crucible, Dana, and leave the world behind, good, bad, indifferent, and test ourselves and when we do, you better have more than some buzzwords and internet outrage that moves on to the next target when it becomes convenient. I am not going anywhere and I will show you...
She rears back and gets set to throw an elbow smash.
Alex "Bullet" Carbajal: ¡El camino al infierno está pavimentado con buenas intenciones!
Admin: Note that the deadlines have changed. I made the change for the convenience of the other judges.

Admin: Hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July weekend/week/day! 💪💯💯
Jul 4, 2021 14:22:58 GMT -6
Admin: Where do yall hist photos? I'm thinking about switching sites, because I'm paying a monthly subscription for Photobucket and they got watermarks back on my images. I'm guessing it's a glitch or something, but it's already been two days.
Aug 7, 2021 6:56:18 GMT -6
The Purge: I use Imgur - and I've never paid a cent for their services, and no water marks
Aug 7, 2021 8:48:13 GMT -6
Deleted: o.o Lord, Rob! Get away from Photobucket ASAP! I’m with Haircin — use Imgur. It’s way better and costs nothing.
Aug 8, 2021 16:28:35 GMT -6
Admin: I appreciate yall! ✊💯💯 Ima look into it this week. Apologies to everyone if some of the images for the show tonight have that Photobucket watermark. I didn't have the time today obviously to make any switches. But I will make time this week. 💯💯
Aug 8, 2021 17:43:04 GMT -6
Admin: Katrina will probably be happy too as she was just telling me I was crazy for paying monthly for a photo host. Lol.
Aug 8, 2021 17:44:00 GMT -6
Admin: ***NOTE*** I moved the deadline up 12 hours to give the judges an extra day to read over the rps.
Aug 10, 2021 15:29:37 GMT -6
Admin: Started messing with Imgur today and confirmed to myself that Imgur was the original photo host I was using for Season One and the beginning of Season Two of MHW. Something made me mad and thats when I switched to Photobucket. I don't remember what though.
Aug 12, 2021 16:08:47 GMT -6
Admin: Ima still switch back to it though, because the Photobucker watermarks are still showing up on some images.
Aug 12, 2021 16:09:19 GMT -6
Admin: ***Just A Reminder*** The new deadline is less than 24 hours away. 💪💯💯

cmosh: Marisol Vilaró is Spanish, she is from Spain
Sept 14, 2021 22:50:17 GMT -6
Admin: Noted 💪💯💯 So I can get Rrina to teach me how to pronounce her name.
Sept 15, 2021 15:35:32 GMT -6
cmosh: Don't worry I don't know how to pronounce it either. She is actually played by someone else, so it is sometimes hard to do RP's with them due to our work schelduce but I am alound to use the character over here
Sept 15, 2021 19:28:12 GMT -6
Admin: Trying something different with the match writing, based off of research and just to try something new. It's a hit or miss concept, so feedback would be appreciated. ThrowDown will also debut the new layout concept. AMMO will start with that new layout...
Sept 18, 2021 8:35:55 GMT -6
Admin: ...on the following AMMO. This AMMO will just have the new match writing idea.
Sept 18, 2021 8:36:32 GMT -6
cmosh: I want to apologize to everyone for not doing a rp this week. Just been a tough week at work and other things got in the way as well, again I'm really sorry for not rping this week
Sept 18, 2021 21:07:43 GMT -6
Admin: It happens, brudda!
