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!
circumitus: Captain Morgan didnt let me down when i stand up it feels like the world is trying to hand me rainbows. (i hate your face)

Being one of those City Guards, it was only a matter of time before one of them were to stumble upon the gristly setup. After all, regular patrols is part of the agenda.

It happened to have been Rey's shift when she makes to investigate the suspicious trail, though not without suspicions of her own. For all she knows, it could be a trap. Or it could also be a victim of a terrible joke, inspired by Fear's encouragement over the network. Either way, Rey intends to see it through to the end of the trail.

That leads her to the body, though it's hard to tell what it is at first. She's been traveling with minimal visibility, finding the flashlights to be annoying with their flickering and lanterns and candles a hindrance when she may require the use of both hands out here.

Judging by her find, the latter may be possible sooner than she thought. Rey cants her head at the image resembling blood and a cadaver. Her eyes have since adjusted to the dark, but it certainly helps when she illuminates the scene -- not with a flashlight, but with her own hand. Arm extended outward, red veins wrap around under her skin, stopping at her wrist, until flames erupt from the flesh, though she herself is neither burning or screaming in agony. Instead, she just makes a disgruntled noise at the sight of the lifeless body that seemingly resembles the guy she had met a few days ago. One of the newcomers.

"Shit," she mutters with all the nonchalance of being met with a minor inconvenience. "Suppose Maketh would want this reported."

That woman sure does love her paperwork.

A tiny whisper in the back of Rey's mind stirs at the sight with eager glee. Something that Rey has attempted to sate with the slaughter of various creatures in the tunnels. But those monsters are just that -- monsters. Most of which barely resembled anything human.

It has been a long time since Rey has seen a human corpse. It's much different from anything else -- it's exciting. At least, it is to a piece of her.

"Of course, you're probably enjoying this, aren't you?" Though she speaks under her breath, it sounds as if she's talking to another person rather than herself this time.

But as much as it illuminates the grisly scene, it still doesn't make the particles streaming from Sato's body any more visible. And just as unseen, the flat-headed form congeals quickly, feet touching down lightly behind Rey.

"Y̨̳̙͚̱͐̓̎̑͝o̹͓͔̱̙̒̀̀̀͐u̡͍̺͍͆̏̇͂̓͜'̧̟͓̗̩̒̎̄́͝ḷ͉͈̯̥̾̉͆̏͠l̜͓̖̳̺̈́͊̒͘͘ ̡̨͓͌̍̒̕͘ͅͅb͔͙̫̺͎̉̊̈́̍̈́e̹̝̹̪̟͗̈́̒̊͝ ̨̢̩̥̹͐̽͌̀̿ĥ̨̛̹̜̝̬͛̾̈ȩ̛͙̜̣̼́̉͒̒ȓ̢̯͔͉̣̑̇̇͐e̜̝̠̙͇̔̍̌̒̽.

To be fair, seeing Rey's flaming arm through the hazy mental connection to the ghost is surprising; it's the first seriously out of the ordinary thing Sato's seen so far. It's hard not to recognize that face too, which means.. this could be much more interesting than he'd even expected. Will she even try to fight it? Seems like the sort who might.

Hand still burning fiercely, Rey whips her head in the direction of the voice and presence behind her. She subsequently whirls around to face it dead on, but nothing is there.

Fingers curling into a hot fist, her eyes dart in the direction of the harsh-spoken words. Judging by such an ominous message, its role regarding the corpse of the newcomer doesn't leave much to the imagination.

"You think that just because you have some cloaking trick?" It's her immediate thought, rather than assuming something as absurd as a ghost or malignant spirit. Not like she's never dealt with invisible targets before -- and there are usually ways of making the 'unseen' seen.

Fear doesn't become her, either way. Only self-preservation and a will to fight.

And a part of her right now really wants to fight, whatever this is.

Rey might be a tough cookie to crack, but Sato is up for the challenge. It's not exactly thrilling from his perspective on the ground waiting, but once someone actually shows up... it's a little fun, isn't it?

" ͈̥̻̗ͅ ̨̡̗͙͍ ̡͙̱̭͉ ̣͙̭̯̙ ̳̟̲̩̠ ̩̰͍̻̖ ͍̪̣̰̙ ̬̦̼̺ͅ ̤̻̻̭ͅ ̞̹͖̗͕ ̱̹̜̻̳ ̳͙̦͎͇"

The IBM ghost doesn't respond this time beyond a whispery indecipherable gurbling, but there's the faintest scrape of claws on pavement. Instead, it simply circles around her like a weird humanoid shark, making sure to brush the back of Rey's hair with its hand extended.

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-18 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
Strange. Most synthetics equipped with cloaking devices were quick to attack once their quarry became aware of their presence. This one seems to be toying with her.

But Rey is faced with the very real possibility that this isn't a synthetic. Definitely not the ones that she has encountered in her world, has been customized to combat in droves. The playing field is much different now, more unpredictable.

Then again, one must always anticipate variables in war.

Teeth grinding at the feeling of something even remotely touching her, Rey lashes her arm out at her side, holding it completely vertical. Glowing veins pulse from beneath the flesh of her already flaming hand, stopping at her forearm. Light extends even farther, giving her a better visual of her surrounding environment.

"Fuck. Off." The monotone she so often graces those during first impressions is replaced with a hint of more irritation than fear.

"...N̖͖̪̦̮̩ͮ͆̎ͅỏ̻̜͇̭̟̤ͅp̠̻͚̟ͥͮͦ̚e̖̞̠̞̗ͦ̄ͥͩͦ..."

Even Sato is sometimes surprised by his ghost. Sometimes it seems more oddly aware of the situation than he expected. Or maybe it's just coincidence?

There's still nothing to be seen of its form, but those long clawmarks in the store wall as it intentionally rakes all six fingers through the stucco and stone make it clear where at least part of it is, trailing away from Rey directly and leading her onwards. It's an invitation, almost: come and play.

Great, it's even got lip. Rey scoffs before she kicks up her feet and starts moving.

"Smartass."

Whether it's taunting or baiting her (or both) is hard to tell. Her eyes dart to the blood on the floor, and then in the direction of the sound of nails scarring across the walls.

Judging by the looks of things, it's either utilizing highly advanced cloaking technology (the likes of which she has never even seen) or something else not of her world at all. There are no signs of smoke and mirrors of the unseen presence that is really there. So she decides that she can't approach this like a soldier dealing with invisible synthetics, but she has to approach it as a soldier nonetheless.

It doesn't seem keen on attacking outright, at the very least. Not yet. Perhaps it's trying to draw her elsewhere. For what? As she pushes onward, following the sound of its scraping claws and any hint of footfalls, the area around Rey herself begins to get hotter. Sweltering. The air surrounding her rippling with heatwaves as her arm continues to burn and burn.

A normal human would be sweating. But not Rey, and certainly not whatever it is she's facing. But perhaps the waves in the air can offer some discernibility of this thing.

While the ghost leads her away from the scene, Sato actually eases himself up off the ground. His clothes are a complete disaster, ripped and soaked through with blood from his earlier evisceration and definitely going to warrant another full replacement later.

His surprise will mean partly giving away the trick, but then again, it wasn't exactly a secret in his world at the moment, and it didn't seem to be a problem here.

Silent smile on his face, he follows after Rey as quietly as he can, keeping the focus on his ghost's heavier footfalls and intentional claw scrapes on any available surface. The heat is quite intense -- fragments of the invisible black matter crumbling away from the ghost faster then usual -- so he opts to stay back a little further than he would have otherwise.

In fact, it's still almost impossibly hard to see, but there's a space where the heatwaves are distorted somehow, blocked by the very physical material on the manifestation.
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-20 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
This thing is weird. In fact, everything about this is just weird. Why isn't it attacking her? Rey would take the initiative, but there's no telling what it may do. Is it even hostile?

All evidence points to 'likely', if the corpse left behind is any indicator. But something about this doesn't feel right. She just can't quite place her finger on it.

What was it that Fear had said? Whoever most scares each other via stories or jokes or--

"You're not all that menacing, you know," Rey says to the creature, barely visible through the waves undulating the air. She forces a toothy grin, a light and dismissive timbre that contradicts her previous robotic demeanor back when she had first met the very-living Sato. And then she tries to think of what her brother would do, what he would say if he knew that someone was fucking with him, and possibly fucking with other people. "In fact, the way you're trying to be all spooky is almost rather cute."

That sounds about right.

Yet still, she follows it, her nagging intuition niggling on the back of her mind that she is similarly being pursued. She just doesn't care.

Someone wants to evoke bodily harm for Fear's blessing -- if that is what this is about -- they're going to have to work for it.

Frankly, if this doesn't get her... well, he's not quite out of ideas yet, but it's certainly the best chance. His light steps stalk behind Rey, approaching as closely as he finds bearable (and won't set his clothes on fire).

He doesn't dissipate the ghost - especially since it won't last that much longer - but it does stop dead in its tracks only a beat before Sato pipes up from directly behind her in a clear voice:

"Fancy meeting you out here, Rey!"
circumitus: I ONLY KNOW HOLA. (EVERYONE IS SPEAKING SPANISH)

let me know if this isn't okay!

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-20 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
At present, the temperature alone isn't enough to set anything ablaze, just to leave one feeling a little cooked up.

Upon hearing the voice belonging to someone who, as far as she recalls, should be dead, Rey's immediate instinct kicks in: Before even turning to face the owner of that voice, the red, veiny pulses light up under every inch of visible skin. Without the heatsuit to better help regulate the energy, a flash erupts from the waves around her.

When that flash dissipates, Rey is neither glowing nor on fire anymore.

But some of what remains of Sato's ruined and bloodied shirt, on the other hand, is.

> Drop?

> Roll?

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-20 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
That's legitimate surprise there for a moment on Sato's face when Rey just lights up and the wave of fiery heat hits. It's really the less-bloody parts that catch fire which is.. well, this shirt had a good, but brief life.

Still, it's inconvenient to put it out properly, so he settles for trying to pat out one elbow and shoulders a little, but... no his shirt is still on fire. It doesn't really matter that much. Pain hasn't really concerned him much for a long time and some burns are honestly pretty trivial in comparison to most of the things that have happened to him during his activities as a demi-human.

"My goodness. That was impressive!" he says with every sign pointing to delight as he stands there, mildly scorched, and with full bodily integrity -- both arms (though the sleeve is bloody at the rolled-up elbow) and clearly without any trace of a gut wound.

RIP, Shirt
2016-2016

Darkness has once again encompassed Rey, leaving only the few brief moments Sato spends extinguishing the flames as much as he can with all the light they've got. It's long enough for her to notice that he's very intact and very much alive.

It's strange, but not something she hasn't seen happen before. She watched Firo's blood pour back into his open wound after being stabbed in the neck, and both he and Elmer have claimed to be immortals.

Which begs to question whether or not this guy has something in common with those two, or he's got a few of his own tricks up his sleeve. It isn't like the concept of regeneration is totally out there, even for Rey. She is living proof of that.

"Could say the same thing for you." Dude just walked away from being gutted, and seemingly just laughed off almost being set on fire.

Yeah, he isn't normal. No one here is.

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-20 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Still smouldering a little, Sato pats down his pockets, looking for the mini maglite he'd found after the long night began.

He chuckles. "It's not that unusual here, is it? I've been meeting all kinds of interesting folks since I arrived." He's met at least one other person who just won't stay dead, and given how many unusual people are here, for all he knows there's probably more. Sure, he could have kept it secret, but probably not for that long anyway.

Besides, he has better tricks still lurking in the shadows. Out of the darkness that's falling back around them in the dying flicker of still-burning fabric, an invisible hand with too many fingers reaches out and settles on Rey's shoulder.

"...I̭͎̜ͧͧ̓̓ͮ'̰̥̙̜̗̺͇̲̫̑̌ͪͪ̔̽ͨ̃m̘̘̭̯̤̃̐ ̭̭̪͉͍́̌ͩͭ͌͐̐ͫ̋g̬͓͉̲̩̪͑̿ͪo̱̦̮̫̙͇̟͛̑̿ͯ́̎̐ͥͫͅī̦͉͓̼̐͗ͥ̔n̬̣̠͎ͥ̌ͭg͚̬̗̻͈̤͓͛̀ͪͦ́ͤͧ... ̫̰̼͇̼̳̖̰̓t̬͙͍̘̓̈̎̀o̦ͣ̌̍ͫͅͅ ͙̉̎̓̍̏ͦk̟̯͇̙͇͕͔̊ͯͦͮͣ͊̊ͅi̠̐̓̑̏l͔̱̜͈̼̖̖̗͂̇ͬ͆ͦ͋ͯ̆ͧl̞̳̘ͤͣ̓̉ ̳̱̬̻̫͍͕̰͖ͥ̈̋̍ỹ̹͕͕̬̲͈̿̓ͭ͑̍̄ͩ͗ͅo̥̤̰̯͓̓u̥̤̲̟̞͖͓̞͆͌̇̊ͅ ̙̖͔̠̺̒͛͊ͩt͎͍̮̞̜̤͉̜͑͆o͚̲͔̪̤͎̙̖̭̓ͫ̐͊̃̔́ȯ̠̘̻̜̥̋̄ͤͬ̓..."

Sato's expression doesn't change in the least, pretending he heard nothing.

Although it's pointless to revert to her tired old charade, Rey doesn't so readily put down her guard in front of Sato. "It's true that people don't tend to stay dead here, but it's unusual for someone to come back that quickly. That isn't to say that there aren't some here who are--"

That's when she feels something touch her.

"--capable," she finishes, turning her head towards the sound of the voice and squinting an eye.

She doesn't scream or yell obscenities. Instead, she resorts to the classic 'if it grabs you, punch a hole in it' routine. Reinforced with metal underneath organic layers that make up her vessel, that swing packs an inhumanly potent wallop no matter where it lands.

Which, from where Rey is standing, appears that she is attempting to throw her fist into the air behind her. But she knows better.

Invisible things are such a pain.

Rey definitely makes contact with something because she can feel her fist drive right into whatever it is, pushing it back. The initial impact was like hitting a person, yes, but it seemed to crumple under her fist with invisible, yet entirely tangible pieces, flying off in the impact.

"I'm sorry, is there some reason you're flailing around? I've got a light here, just a moment," Sato adds, continuing to feign obliviousness. "Ah, here we go." The flicker of the flashlight helps augment the meagre light cast by the last few flames flickering on his shirt.

He can see its head starting to crumble, the black ghost failing to hold up much longer.

"...w̫̬̜̍͛ͨ̄h̼̟̝̱̹̣͕ͣͯͨ̎̚i̙̼͖̞͔̖̫̎͊c͈͖̮̯̦ͧͧ̂̇͛̐̈́ͨh͚̜̪͗ ̰͔̥͙̹̦̩̯̑͑ͣs̙̗̦͍̼͚̩̬̊́ͩ̚ͅī̩̻̩͖̺̠̜̝͕ͫͩͮ͋̊̔d̙̫̝̹̞̑̑e͖̞ͬͬ̏ͥ̚ ͍̠̖͍͚̹̞̱̘̇̎ͬ̐͌d͓̮̼͔̪̓ͅǒ͎̣̯͎̝̻̜̮ͬͯ̐ͩͧ ̫̮̗̥̝̬͕̈̀̐̐̄y̘̯̮͔̖ͤͯͪò̮͍̼u̼̓̉̓ͤ ̫͗ͭͤͤ̿ͦͯͅb̘̝ͦ̓ẹ͖̫͊̒t̙̲͇͓̙̲ͩ̃ͪͣ̈̓̿ ̯͉̘̙̳ͪ͋ͦ̽o̗̦̦̞̓ͣ͑̍̍ͪn̦̱̉?̬̟̤̬̻̖̋̈̐̈́..."

Whatever it was she had hit, it was definitely something. Rey blinks at the empty space in front of her, hands up in a defensive posture as though expecting it to retaliate for her outright assault.

It doesn't, though. Just speaks those words that no doubt sound to be a threat. "Don't say you're all bark and no bite," she mutters under her breath.

She has seen what it's capable of. That is, assuming that it's what had attacked Sato earlier, in addition to the threats it's been making. No, it's no coincidence. It has to be connected.

As the light sheds very little on the situation for Rey, she casts a glance over her shoulder.

"You seriously aren't hearing any of this shit?" Because even without visibility, that disembodied voice is difficult to miss.
infinite1up: (WTF)

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-21 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
"Any of what shit...?" Sato takes a half step back, frowning and shining the thin beam of the flashlight past her. Just look at his reaction. Maybe you're the only one who can hear it, Rey. Maybe, despite all the evidence, you're just going crazy and talking to yourself.

It's really a shame he can't hold his ghost together any more. The claws lash out towards Rey, but by the time they hit it's nothing more than a puff of wind, a strange puff of some odd particulate blowing past her as it dissolves into thin air.

Auditory hallucinations wouldn't be a first for Rey, neither would the likelihood of someone making her question her sanity. She doesn't turn towards Sato, though, finding the unseen presence to be an even greater threat than he.

(Funny, ha ha.)

When she goes to return her attention back to what's before her, she senses that light wisp moving her hair despite there being no consistent breeze afterwards. No more intangible voice coming from seemingly nowhere and yet somewhere, no more hand on her shoulder or claws scraping across walls. Whatever it was, it's gone.

"It had to have been what attacked you. That shit." She isn't ready to start having doubts regarding the state of her sanity just yet.
infinite1up: (Serious)

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-21 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
"Are you sure? I didn't see anything..." He shines the flashlight around a little. It flickers once, twice... and goes out. The poor shirt, still hanging on by a few threads, has a few embers burning still, but it's definitely pitch black again.

He didn't even do that on purpose, hmm.

And that there is exactly why Rey hasn't even been bothering with Fear's stupid flashlights.

Not catching any sense of the unseen force that had drawn her away from the scene where Sato had been killed, she returns her focus on the man and not his killer.

"Didn't see much, either. It was invisible." A few of the creatures that showed up with the recent wave of people could do that, but none of them seemed to be capable of speech. This feels different, though. Why?
infinite1up: (Serious)

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-21 04:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Unfortunately there's a little too much evidence for its actual presence, so he can't exactly deny it fully, but Sato's still fairly pleased with the Rey's little jump-scare related flare-up. Interesting effect. Maybe there'll be a good excuse to see what else she can do some other time.

"Hmm. That would explain a lot. Worrying, isn't it? Perhaps it's still around," he says with every indication of concern, tapping the flashlight against his hand a couple times. Still nothing. These things are terrible.

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-21 08:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"Perhaps," she retorts with only muted concern.

Indeed the flashlights do suck. Which is why Rey decides after a moment to bring up her hand; the thin wormlike patterns illuminate from each finger to her wrist once again before a poof! Flames ignite, offering a better and more promising light. Given what Sato himself can do and his mention of the unusual company he has encountered here, there's no reason to be timid about what she herself is capable of.

As expected, any indication of the presence that was there before seems to be absent now. Did it retreat? The prospect is almost disappointing.

Oh well.

"What happened back there, anyway?"

[personal profile] infinite1up 2016-08-21 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Those flames are really quite something to see, especially clearly like this without the second-hand view through his ghost.

"I was attacked by something, but I didn't plan on sticking around to find out what it was. Didn't quite make a getaway," he 'explains', keeping it nice and simple. Serious, but there's no need to play it up as traumatizing. That wouldn't fit with his own actions so far. "I'd heard there were monsters around, but I had no idea it was so bad."
circumitus: You can pick it up if you come down with ID... (i do believe we have a fire lady)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-08-22 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
The lack of distress isn't all that shocking. Firo was rather blasé over having been killed right in front of her and others seem to regard dying as a minor inconvenience rather than a terrible ending.

"They mostly stick to the tunnels, but every now and then they make it into the city."

Usually such a thing happens when the Door brings in new meat, but there have been some exceptions. It wouldn't surprise her if Fear's meddling had weakened whatever influence Hope had on keeping the creatures in the tunnels.

She doesn't care much about that, though. Rey lifts her hand slightly more, getting a better look at Sato's appearance compared to his previous dismembered and disemboweled state. "So, what? Are you an immortal or something, too?"
