Our plot focuses on a rising darkness which is causing magical disturbances throughout the world, bringing hardships to the heroes. The source of this darkness has been revealed and while they continue to gather support, it is up to the heroes to find a way to stop them before they reach their goal.

SPECTRE WATCH The Spectre is gathering more allies for his cause, to cleanse the world of the filth which lives within it. Driven by curiosity he seeks to test the so called 'heroes' of this world by presenting them with chaos, hardship and personal tests. At the moment, he is unimpressed by the actions of the various heroes and remains unswayed from his decision.

The plague demon had been a good idea. One of those ideas that Nick was actually pretty damn proud of. He'd given demon very clear orders. Cause enough of a ruckus to get John's attention. Get yourself caught. Stay captive. Gather as much information as you can. Pass all of it, every little bit, back to me. Do not escape unless I tell you to. Let Constantine forget about you as much as possible.

And it had worked. Shockingly well, actually.

And the information Nick got from the demon was damn useful. John and Zatanna were still in touch. John had gotten himself a familiar. And a genie..

John was going to Hell.

That had come as a surprise. Oh, not that John Wass planning a trip, not really. The bastard was plenty arrogant enough to do it. But why. Really? John was going to Hell to free a bunch of kids. It wasn't a terrible desire, even Nick would admit that.

Didn't make it a good idea.

At all.

Because it was a really, really bad idea. A really, really bad idea. Exceptionally bad, even for John. This was John's guilt leading him around by the nose. It actually sort of pissed Nick off. Sure. John felt guilty about the kids. Sure. Made sense. But did John feel any remorse for Nick? Nope. He hadn't so much as looked around for Nick. Not. Once.

Really, no one could blame him if Nick just fucked off and let John do this unbelievably stupid thing. Let John be trapped in Hell. Let him rot there. Go be with Zee and let John. Fucking. Constantine. Burn.

But Nick loved John.

He couldn't just walk away. He couldn't. And he had put a lot thought into how to handle this. How to use it..

As luck would have it. John went to Zee's. Nick carefully tagged along, leaving his body carefully tucked away, safe and sound. And he waited. That was the hard part. The waiting. Necessary, though. Eventually, Zatanna fell asleep. That… That was what Nick had been waiting for; asleep. Nick could gently navigate his way past her defenses without raising even a bit of suspicion.

Settling into her mind was... Odd. Usually, Nick couldn't care less about violating someone like this, but this was Zatanna. Nick loved Zatanna every bit as much as he loved John. He might not like this, how this felt, but it was for the best. He just had to keep reminding himself of that: this was for the best.

Nick didn't directly affect Zatama's dreams. Not the normal ones, but he was still there. You didn't dream of light when you were surrounded by the dark.

He'd feel bad about that later. Right now, he focused on staying quiet, out of the way • while zatama slept, Nick gathered his strength, his will power.

He knew how her visions worked.

Using that knowledge, Nick didn't need to make this an attack. He didn't need to even really hurt her. Thank god for that, really.

Instead, before she came fully awake. he let dread seep in. She heard what John said, but Nick pressed at her sight, he let the nightmare just creep in, showing Zeetne thing he feared. Reminding her of just how bad this could go. Nick was well versed, intimately familiar even, with Hell. The vision he gave to Zee was gentled, but quite accurate.

John being discovered. John failing to free the children. John freeing the children, but at a wicked cost. John trapped in Hell. Tortured. Oh, Nick knew he had to be graphic, and he was, but it wasn't as bad as he knew it could be.

But it didn't stop. there.

It got worse.

Because as bad as that might be... Success would bring consequences of its own. If John succeeded, he would be a target. And not just John, either. Nick couldn't let up. It was, perhaps, cruel, but they had been cruel to him, he reminded himself. This was for the best. This was for the best.

John succeeding. He was victorious. But not unnoticed. John could say "consequences be damned” for himself, but it wasn't just John anymore, now was it, Zee? It was his cute little familiar being undone because of John's decision. It was the sweet blonde hero, being left, pregnant and alone, with only her mother to help her along. It was that innocent baby, left fatherless. Worse, left motherless.

Because if John succeeded, they all became targets. Zatanna, the little pine marten, Artemis, their unborn babe, the genie John kept...... You don't go into Hell and take what belonged to the Lords, what belonged to Lucifer, without making yourself, and everyone you touched, a target. To get to John, they
could all pay.

He showed all of it to Zatanna.

He would have happily shoved all of it down John's throat, but he knew better. It had to be Zatanna. And burn John for all of eternity for this, for forcing Nick’s hand like this.

He showed all of this to Zee, for the best. And he made sure she knew. Made sure she saw.

The vision ended abruptly, leaving Zee on her own, except she wasn't. Nick stayed. Just a few moments. He told himself it was to make sure she'd seen all of it. To make sure the vision had "took". But deep down, he knew.

He stayed to make sure she'd be alright.

Today, he was going to meet her.

John’s little sweetie. His contacts had gotten him a bit of information, and he’d been able to dig up some extra bits on her. Artemis Crock. She worked as a courier, and today she was in need of a driver. He’d seen to that quite capably. Magic; it was a wonderful tool. Idly, one finger tapped the spine of the book he carried. It was old, the leather cracking at the edges with age, but it was cared for, too. Carefully, he straightened his tie and settled the book into the briefcase he carried. He wouldn’t need it until he was done here. For the moment, he looked like any other employee, another driver in a city, in a building, full of drivers and chauffeurs.

Today, he wanted to meet John’s girl. She was important to his...friend...and thus she was important to Nick. It was that simple. From what he had heard, she was doing well, healthy; she was hiding her condition, but she wouldn’t be able to for much longer. And Nick wanted to see for himself.

After all, she was important.

Soon. The time for his plan to be enacted would be soon. He’d been so patient for so long, though… While it might make sense for him to say ‘what’s another month or two’, he was eager for things to progress. He wanted to return to what was right. What should be. But he could be patient. She wouldn’t even know who he was; he’d just be another man she met via work. With a smile, he adjusted his hat and opened the door for the young woman, ”All ready to go? I’ll be driving you today.”
