It would behoove you to read Dmatix's The Man Comes Around, as it does tie into this tale.

You are an evil motherfucker.
So… who are the inkbloods? The only ink thing I can think of is that Keter pen, but that doesn't seem appropriate. A unique non-Foundation thing, then?
Giving bearhugs to the unsuspecting since 1872.
Yep. Not featured in any pre-existing scip. In this context, it's a Daevite-era magical tradition that has found its way into the ranks of AWCY
You weren't kidding about the equal parts absurdity and horror, were you. I mean, Saturn Deer, Darkblade, and SoulBerg. Next you're gonna have the guy from Bees and alt-universe Chowderclef in on the fight.
"I have looked into the deepest hell. Hell was bees."
Done and done.
As awesome as this is, and it's very awesome, I'm quite disappointed this isn't, well, going where I'd hoped. I really wanted them to have to make this choice.
A) You're a disgusting sadistic little wretch. I like that in people. x3
B) Where are you getting that they won't? I mean, as far as we know, this was a Foundation agent waiting for him, to kill him and ensure he won't interfere, since she left him a message. The agents that left him there probably had no idea how combat and interrogation ready Salah is. It might very well still be a legit Foundation operation, and her daughter really is intended Moloch fodder.
2 is now head canon, and all my reservations about this have been blown away. Keep this up(just the level of writing in general..) and I will demand you add yourself to the Daevite gods, just in recognition of how great your stuff is. Perhaps hmm…'Vae Linx', drinker of tears?
This isn't my story, it was written by Djoric for Bast's sake. That said, I wouldn't have much reservations against becoming a Daevite deity asides from most of the company x3
"Little is known of the Vae Lynx, for he is an Eye of Historia, a title given not to one but to many. Theirs is the realm of story and lore, of fantasy and reality. They write what is, what was, and what could be, but hold no power to change any of it. The Eyes of Historia are scarcely mentioned in the books of the Daeva, but it is speculated that the books themselves were written by Eyes. Of what is known of the Eyes are names such as the Vae Lynx, Drow Ursine, D'mat IX, Azail In-Flux, and Djoric the All-Seeing."
…yeah, this is why I don't write for this canon.
You despicable, wonderful, hateful, amazing bastard. How could you do this to Naomi and Mary-Ann? Why? Why—
You despicable, wonderful, hateful, amazing, crafty bastard. >:D
+1 and my love
As I said on IRC: The main issue with this is the Drano torture thing. First off, it's presuming Jack Bauer techniques actually work in real life (they don't), and the Drano thing is… boring. Also as I said on IRC — Honestly, it could've still worked, by not using Drano, but by misdirecting with some horrifically described anomalous thing. It would still be bullshit but /fascinating/ bullshit.
Regardless, +1. Whether or not the premise here is gonna turn out to be bullshit, it certainly forces the reader to keep reading. (More a comment for part 1, but noticed it here.)
EDIT: Also, the quote box story is working for me now.
