Intro Log: Ten Thousand Lightning Bugs

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for May.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: May 10th-16th
Warnings: Confused newbies, pretty fireflies, stuff getting lit on fire

Awakening in Hadriel is perhaps not the most wonderful thing, but as you pry yourself off the hard ground of the colosseum, you may notice that the Door (or possibly one of the gods?) has seen fit to provide you with a little entertainment. Scattered across the ground are a number of handheld video games. These cheap pieces of shit lovingly crafted products can each provide you with whole minutes of entertainment, at least until you get frustrated and smash them to pieces. Have fun!

But not too much fun. If you get too involved in that game, you might miss the approach of some glowing little creatures - guardian fireflies, from the movie Atlantis. Should they land on anything flammable - and yes, that includes you and your hair - it'll burst into flames. Smash them, and they'll explode in a tiny ball of flame, too. There'll be a couple hundred of these things flying around Hadriel, so let's hope you left your stash of gunpowder at home. With the window closed.

Once you've stopped dropped and rolled, feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

► This log covers May 10th-16th.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well!
► All characters arrive with phones that have network communication.
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

[The only thing that tips Rey off that the giant wolf isn't actually some new monster is the fact that it's attacking the fires rather than people. Thus far, it doesn't seem that anything useful has ever come through the Door after the new arrivals. Until now, apparently?

[Either way, she isn't one to question it. Rey is rather preoccupied herself, trying to deal with the damage control via absorbing the flames into her vessel. Just as she can produce heat, she can also draw it in. And that's exactly what she plans on doing.

[At least this is something Rey is good at. Something she can do beyond any shadow of doubt. And she is taking full advantage of that skill set.]

If you've got this block covered, will take care of the wildfire down that way. [She nods in the general direction of a kindling flame rising from between two buildings. Don't mind her -- her left forearm is only completely on fire.

[God, she hopes that the animal can understand her right now.]

[Bigby gets front row seats to watch Rey approach the fire he was going to blow out, and somehow... suck it up into herself. His glowing eyes watch that fantastical feat; when she addresses him his ears perk up, and he nods.]

Right. [For such a big creature, he moves almost soundlessly towards the fire, watching her arm with deep curiosity as he passes.] Don't hurt yourself.
circumitus: and me reduced to ash. (the hazards of love)

[Welp, if there was any shadow of doubt that the wolf wasn't a new arrival, it's all been dispelled now.]

Oh, so you talk.

[How convenient.

[As she speaks, she flings her arm. The fire sucks inward into her skin and vanishes.]
blowyoudown: (well then)

I'm a rare breed.

[Called over one shoulder before he takes a deep breath, chest visibly swelling, and blows on the fire. The rush of his breath hits it like a wall, and it's smothered almost instantly. He keeps blowing for another few seconds, just to be safe, before he turns and pads back to her, watching curiously again.]

You're one too, by the looks of it. Never seen anyone do that before.
circumitus: Have crush on guy with mullet. Life is over. (MAYDAY glass in foot!)

[She could be more inclined to disagree, but he's not wrong. Instead she just watches as he does his thing, impressed.]

Never seen a wolf extinguish fires like that before. Suppose that makes us even. [Or something.]

[Just then, one of the fireflies lands just on the tip of her nose. Rey blinks. This is a lot less cute than when the happy-fireflies had done so only a few days ago.] Don't you dare--

[That's when it explodes in her face.

[...She's fine, mind you. Hair is blown back, but otherwise unscathed.]
blowyoudown: (wait what)

[personal profile] blowyoudown 2016-05-18 08:26 am (UTC)(link)
[He doesn't get to reply before the firefly detonates, but he does get taken aback and jerk his head back slightly, reflexively.]

...what the fuck are you made of?

[This is something he hasn't seen before. Even with his own healing rate, he'd still take actual physical damage from that. Why isn't the girl?]
circumitus: (could make you care)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-05-18 02:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[Rey takes a moment to wipe the burnt residue from her face before turning her eyes up to the wolf speaking to her.]

Am partially synthetic. And also flameproof.

[Implying that a fast healing rate doesn't have anything to do with it. She wouldn't be okay in any other scenario if it hadn't involved fire and heat.]
