Event Log: Regret This

Who: Everyone!
What: The Regret This event
Where: Throughout the city
When: June 25th-July 3rd
Warnings: Sorrow is resurrected, and everyone is immediately full of regrets


Hope has finally managed another god resurrection, and the people have spoken! On June 25th, he musters his powers and brings Sorrow back to Hadriel. An orchard appears across the river, in the until now ruined part of the city, and Sorrow's temple is also restored. Hooray! One more god to make things a little more livable in this place.

Of course, it's not that easy. It never is. Along with Sorrow himself comes a wave of regret and guilt that blankets the city. All those affected will be inclined to not only be sad, but to linger over past regrets and things they feel guilty about. They can distract themselves with everyday tasks or whatever else they please, but they'll find that their thoughts drift back to these regrets regardless of what they do.

And of course, the best way to purge a guilty conscience is confession, right? On top of these persistent sad thoughts, people will feel the urge to tell others about them, to air their past mistakes or misdeeds and possibly receive some kind of forgiveness. So what if your neighbor doesn't care that you cheated on your final exams all through school? You have to tell someone, and they're right there. If it doesn't make you feel better, that probably means you haven't confessed to enough people yet, or maybe you just haven't found the right person. Better try again!

On July 3rd, Sorrow has settled in and this urge to confess your sins will die down, along with the constant regret. Let's hope you didn't confess anything too personal. Remember, you're gonna have to see some of these people every day.

rage's temple.

[Nick doesn't make a habit of going near any of the gods' temples, because she doesn't like any of them, and especially not Rage, despite what Fear had initially suggested about their compatibility. That stunt with making her nearly kill Maketh slotted Rage squarely under the heading of "huge fucking bitch" in Nick's book.

But this aching sadness in the air is just too much to bear. Nick goes wandering the city, because walking gives her something to think about that isn't what a pathetic excuse for a human - pseudo-human? she doesn't fucking know - she is, how fundamentally wrong she must be if everyone always leaves her. She's not particular about where she's heading, and once she finds herself near Rage's temple, the faint flicker of change in how she feels is enough to draw her inside. Anger is comfortable, familiar, a much more welcome thing to fill her cracked heart.

She sees him punch the wall - of course it's him, because that's just how her luck tends to run.]


Kamina, what the fuck.

[Kamina hears that familiar voice, but he doesn't turn. She doesn't need to see him like this. Why is she even here? He's never seen her here. The anger that's directed towards himself burns, and he can feel a tendril trying to direct itself towards her. He doesn't need that, doesn't want it.]

What?

[His fist is throbbing, and he holds it where it is against the cool stone, voice tight as he answers.]

bekommen: (i'm sorry there's nothing to save.)

What the fuck are you doing?

[Duh, Kamina. Why you gotta make her repeat herself.]

[personal profile] themightykamina 2016-07-04 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)

Nothing. Nothing useful, anyway.

[His fist clenches, and he grinds it into the stone for a second before pulling away, turning to face her with hands at his sides. His eyes are dull, expression tired and empty despite the traces of anger in the way he grinds his teeth.]

What are you doing here?

bekommen: (we are standing on the edge.)

[Nick scowls at him, folding her arms across her chest.]

What, I gotta tell you everything I'm doing now? You want a fuckin' itinerary or something?

[Of course she's here for a fight. This is Rage's temple, isn't it? And when is Nick not ready for a fight? For a moment he's so tired he can't stand it, but the next...the next he has what he came here for, and even if he regrets that just a little, it still feels better than the crippling sadness that came before.]

So you're allowed to grill me about my business and you won't even answer an easy question? Fine.

[He gives her a mocking bow, and it's obvious by how exaggerated it is that he's just trying to egg her on at this point.]

You're none of my business, anyway. You've made that point by now. Come on in, I won't be here to bug you for long.
bekommen: (i don't want anything anyway.)

[The mocking bullshit is just too much for Nick to tolerate. Why does she keep caring about what happens to this asshole anyway? Why does she keep caring about anyone? Nobody's ever done anything for her except cause pain in the end.]

You know what, Kamina? Go fuck yourself. In fact, go fuck all the monsters in the shitty caves, while you're at it. I hope they fucking eat you alive, you fucking sack of shit.
themightykamina: (look to tomorrow)

[Why does he even bother with this girl? Why does he even care what happens to her? All she does is yell at him, all she does is hurl insults and try and tear him down, even more than all the other hideous things in here. The rage bubbling up inside him is soothing, overpowering the regret that tells him maybe he deserves it. He heads towards the entrance, for once not yelling; for once, his voice is just firm and level despite the heat of anger in it.]

Yeah. I bet you do. You know, all you've done since I met you is yell at me, try and tear me down, tell me to fuck off. All you've done is try and make me feel like a piece of shit. Well, at least I'm trying to do something, instead of sitting around feeling sorry for myself and trying to make everyone else in here feel shitty, too.

[He doesn't stop. He doesn't even look at her.]

[Nick watches him pass by through narrowed eyes, fuming.]

Yeah, you're doing a bang-up job of trying. Too bad you're not actually accomplishing anything. Must feel pretty awesome to be such a fucking loser.
