Event Log: Beetlejuice

Who: Everyone participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Beetlejuice event!
Where: All around the city
When: August 13th-August 18th
Warnings: Scary stories to tell in the dark! Maybe a few goosebumps? Taking a walk or two down Fear Street.

When you wake up on the morning of August 13th - well, you'll notice that morning just doesn't really happen. The light that usually illuminates the cave doesn't start coming on, leaving things as dark as night. As if that's not enough, the light switches don't seem to work either. No matter how many times you flip them, the lights won't come on, although mysteriously the other appliances work as normal.

Afraid of the dark? Don't worry! You have oh-so-kindly been provided with lanterns, candles, and flashlights that sure do love to flicker just when you least want to be terrified. Hey, it's something, right?

Just as you begin to realize the artificial 'sun' isn't coming up, Fear appears to make an announcement to the network. What's not fun about scary stories when you're stuck in a dark cave surrounded by monsters? Nothing, that's what! So have fun, everyone - terrify your friends with that story about a cactus filled with spiders, try that classic scarecrow-falling-from-the-ceiling prank. It'll be a good time for everyone, especially Fear! We're sure no one will hold anything against you. On the morning of August 18th, the lights will finally come on as usual. Let's hope you don't have any nightmares!

► This log covers August 13th-August 18th.
► Feel free to make your own logs, as well
► Please tag headers of threads with content warnings where they apply
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!
► If you scare yourself to death, please let us know here!

Rey | OTA

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-14 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
I. The City

Darkness has never troubled nor scared Rey. In fact, she could always see pretty well once her eyes adjusted to it, and they have long since gotten used to the dim shapes outlining the paths and surrounding buildings.

It also helps that she can easily make her own light. Lanterns, candles, and flickering flashlights be damned.

Of course, to anyone walking the streets, that may be a different story for them.

If only because she is heading towards her destination with her hands extended and on fire. Rather than consuming her flesh while she screams in agony, the flames remain controlled, lingering no farther than her forearm. It's just enough to light her up like a roman candle within the dark city and it's no big thing.

II. Delight's Bar

It should come as no surprise that the bar has become a common place of congregation for many in Hadriel. And when people need someplace to meet up at, swap stories, and attempt to terrify each other, then why not get hammered while doing it?

Rey is far from drunk, though not entirely sober by the time company arrives. She is seated in the corner of the room, a table lit only by a candle that flicks and spits and shines her scarred face almost ominously in the dark room. Even though she has gone through half a bottle with collection of shotglasses on the tabletop, the bourbon has yet to kick in.

People want scary stories? Sure, Rey has an abundance of them. But still--

"Am too sober for this shit."

The darkness itself wasn't an issue; EDI was far more concerned about what was hiding in it. Whether or not any of the creatures in charge claimed there was anything. Any number of things they may or may not have had control over could take advantage of the shadows.

There's certainly no mistaking the woman in front of her, though. She may only have spoken to her once, but that was certainly someone difficult to forget, what with her hands on for and all. More information, maybe? She could hardly believe the announcement carried all of it.

"Greetings. Would you perhaps be amenable to answering some additional inquires I have concerning the current state of affairs?"

circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-14 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Good thing one of the first encounters Rey finds herself passing during her little trek happens to be one that doesn't panic at the sight of her fire-hands. That's when Rey remembers her initial encounter with EDI, and suddenly the synthetic woman's nonchalant welcome makes all the more sense.

Waving off the flames in one hand for good measure, she lifts her other flaming one for better lighting when she peers at EDI's direction.

"By 'current state of affairs', am assuming you mean the fact that Fear's an asshole and shut out all the lights?"

[personal profile] mobilityassistance 2016-08-15 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
It was almost like dealing with the Normandy crew again; the bluntness, the anger that simmered underneath everything was so familiar that EDI almost felt back home again.

"To be so...direct, yes." There were certainly worse things one could be than direct. "I would like to obtain some information directly from the inhabitants rather than other sources. Do you object to answering questions?"

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-15 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
On the plus side, the directness is much appreciated. While patience is a virtue, Rey has a low tolerance for beating about the bush.

"Depends on the questions, but sure."

Not like she has anything to hide, and Rey can hazard a guess on what EDI means by 'other sources'.

[personal profile] mobilityassistance 2016-08-15 04:24 am (UTC)(link)
"Thank you." She was supposed to be polite, after all.

There were a few things she wanted to know, though, so she pauses for an almost imperceptible moment to calculate which is the most important question to ask first.

"How likely is the local wildlife to take advantage of the darkness to cover an attack?"
circumitus: its people like u that make people like me go to rehab. he has a lazy eye for christ sakes. (your girlfriend is a south jersey whore)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-16 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
The local wildlife...?

"Well, they're not local, for one thing. Haven't seen anything native to this world... Nothing that's alive, anyway." Far Rey she knows, everything else comes through the Door, which leads her to... "Though Hope usually keeps the creatures in the caves once they appear, if that's what you're wondering."

Which, it probably is.

The fire in one hand extinguishes while Rey's other remains burning as she thinks.

"Hard to say if that's going to keep up, seeing that Fear has already messed with things here."
mobilityassistance: <user name="bleeding_muse" site="livejournal.com"> (Vid)

[personal profile] mobilityassistance 2016-08-16 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
"I am primarily concerned with the possibility of an attack." Whether or not the monsters were native, really, was immaterial. If they were brought in like the rest of the residents were, though... That would be interesting to remember.

"Have the gods of this place warred with each other before?"
circumitus: its people like u that make people like me go to rehab. he has a lazy eye for christ sakes. (your girlfriend is a south jersey whore)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-16 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
It isn't an invalid concern. Who is to say how much sway Hope has over the creatures in the tunnels while his adversary has done some meddling of his own?

Rey's mouth twists as she glances away, her arms folding over her chest before she speaks.

"It doesn't sound like it. But then, Sorrow claimed that they weren't the first of their kind, so who's to say that their predecessors have warred before or not."

two; Crow attempts to amuse Rey, a true horror story.

[personal profile] funnybird 2016-08-15 07:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"Crap, crap!"

Sputters Crow as he comes to land on the table, the wind of his descent nearly extinguishes the flame of the lonely little light. He leans to give a soft breeze of air to fire it back up, then pretends it didn't happen at all. Smooth criminal.

"Hey again, lady! Nice dark and gloomy funk you got going on back here. Need a Crow to add to your villainous vibe?"

Crow may or may not be a little tipsy himself.

It totally happened. Not that Rey would've cared, since relighting it wouldn't have been a problem when she is a light herself.

She does study the bird for a moment, her eyes narrowing at his speech. Also she might've just been witness to the groan-worthy banter between him and their skeletal comedian earlier.

"Are you drunk?"

Can birds even drink alcohol? Should they drink alcohol?!
funnybird: (Default)

[personal profile] funnybird 2016-08-16 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Say 'no'.


Close enough.

"I've been sipping a few things here and there. Don't think I'm drunk juuust yet. Since it doesn't take that much to get me there, I have to be careful!"

As responsible as he claims to be, his words are starting to sound pretty loose. Who knows if crows should have liquors or wines? All he knows is that he's a true featherweight in the realm of alcoholic beverages; The next drink he has will likely send him into drunk-mode.

He eyes the several glasses she has and the bottle beside her.

...two bottles?

...no, one bottle. Yeah. One.

"And you aren't yet? Yeesh. What are you, a brick wall?"

He's just jealous.
circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-16 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
It doesn't seem unlikely that animals can experience inebriation in the same manner as humans. It's just the first time Rey has ever encountered one that actually has something to say about it. All things considered, she can't imagine that it'd take much for a bird to get totally wasted, so she'll be keeping an eye on him. If nothing else, it'll be amusing.

"You could say that," Rey replies, leaning back in her seat with her arms crossed. Unlike Crow, her speech is level, and her posture doesn't read as being even remotely affected by the alcohol she's just consumed. "Have a pretty high fortitude."

Not being human has its perks, it would seem. Unless Rey actually wanted to get drunk, then it rather sucks.
funnybird: (Default)

[personal profile] funnybird 2016-08-23 07:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Lu-uu-cky!" He sing-songs with jealousy.

The idea that this lady has either a natural talent or years of experience with alcohol automatically puts Crow out of the league of keeping up. Mister One-Thimble over here, who can get drunk on nothing in comparison. And that she seems so bored by it is another thing! So, for some reason, he decides to accept the challenge of seeing a metaphorical unicorn: To make her smile.

He remembers that she's been listening all night, so he'll have to be clever about it.

"Y'know, alcohol is never the answer to a problem. But it's worth a shot!"

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-25 02:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Birds and alcohol doesn't sound like a healthy mix, but who is Rey to cut someone off their vices when she has plenty of her own?

She starts to pick up her glass of bourbon when Crow speaks again, and she stops. And just. Blinks at him, then down at her drink, and back to him.

...worth a shot.

"Dammit. That was a joke, wasn't it?"
funnybird: (Default)

[personal profile] funnybird 2016-09-21 04:45 am (UTC)(link)
He feels that they stare at each other for an unnaturally long minute.

And how he holds it together for that long he may never know, since he then breaks into a fit of snickering and cackling. At his own joke.

"Hoo! Sorry! Sorry... But you know what they say, 'A good pun is it's own reword'!"
Edited 2016-09-21 04:50 (UTC)
circumitus: She was stuck there, we simply exchanged rides. (it's not like i paid for sex)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-24 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
...He didn't.

(No, pretty sure he did.)

Rey's eyes just narrow.

"That's terrible." Despite what she says, she may be hiding a hint of a smile behind that hand over her face.

Firo, on the other (non-burning) hand, has been wandering around in the dark. When he sees that light in the distance, what can he do but keep feeling along the walls until he’s close enough to check it out? It’s not like he has anything better to do.

As he draws closer, he’s surprised to see that it’s Rey. Rey’s hand. Rey’s flaming hand.

He sucks in a breath and is about to look around for some water before it occurs to him that he’s seen something kind of like that before. It must be a trick, right? She doesn’t even look concerned.

He trots over, “What the hell’re you doin’?”

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-17 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
Rey was on her merry way when she's abruptly stopped by a familiar voice.

"Firo?" She raises her hand, casting the light farther until it extends towards the approaching young man. Once he's close enough, she replies, "Headed to the store. What're you doing?"

As far as she's concerned, she isn't doing anything particularly out of sorts, flaming hand or no. Because that's perfectly normal... right?

No, even Rey understands that that isn't normal. She plays dumb, anyway.

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-08-17 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
He stops a few feet away; he doesn't want to get too close to that heat. He's assuming she's using Randy's trick, but the leather and oil he uses to protect himself do nothing for the people watching his act. Firo'd rather not get toasted.

Instead of answering her question, he just squints at her. "You normally light yourself on fire when you run errands?"

Besides, he's not doing much of anything, so it's not like he has an answer to give.
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-18 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
She just shrugs.

"It's more reliable than the flashlights, and don't feel like carrying around a lantern or candle."

Having the use of both hands should something attack is more important to her, anyway. At least this way she gets both visibility and the freedom to act quick should anyone decide to take Fear's provocation a little too far.
foundafamily: (13.3)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-08-18 04:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Uh-huh." He sounds skeptical. She says this all like it makes perfect sense despite being totally weird; she reminds him of home.

Emboldened, he leans in closer to try and get a good look. "So how's this work? You're usin' oil? I can't even see the glove..."

She's good. Randy would be so jealous--Firo feels a twinge of homesickness as he wishes he could race back to Alveare and tell him.
circumitus: and me reduced to ash. (the hazards of love)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-19 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
Arching a brow, Rey casts Firo a look when he assumes she's using a glove. "It isn't some cheap parlor trick, if that's what you're wondering."

To demonstrate, she snaps her fingers shut, closing them into a tight fist. With one smooth motion, the fire is extinguished, leaving behind various red pulsating veins glowing underneath her one-burning skin. Then, as easily as flicking a lighter or striking a match, she flattens her hand in the air again: A sound like a breath sighs, and poof, the flames erupt around the parts of her glowing flesh.

"This vessel is fireproof," she then clarifies, trying to keep it simple for Firo's sake. "It produces a substance called 'samandrine', which helps to regulate the amount of heat my body can emit."

There. Layman's terms, right?
foundafamily: (13.3)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-08-20 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
Firo shuffles back in surprise when the flames flare in and out. "What..."

He shakes his head, and when he looks back up at her, his eyes are almost sparkling. "I don't understand any of that, but that's amazing! Randy and Pecho would go crazy if they saw this."
circumitus: and me reduced to ash. (the hazards of love)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-22 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
At the very least, Firo seems to get the gist of it. Or so Rey thinks. She's pretty sure she has heard him mention those names before, too.

People from his family. Right.

"If you say so. Although it has been pretty useful, given our current situation."

Among other situations, it's a handy boon to have.
