Event Log: Fadeout

Who: Everyone participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Fadeout event!
Where: All around the city
When: November 15th-November 25th
Warnings: None!

The morning of November the 15th seems rather normal- that is, if you can avoid the glowing cracks in the fabric of reality tucked away among various streets. Still, they don't really seem to be doing much of anything and you can't quite see through them, so maybe they're decoration? This wouldn't be the first time the gods pulled some weird shit to shake things up around here.

By midafternoon, however, something changes. Cecily, in all her wisdom, decides to attempt to dispel one of these rifts, and the resulting shockwave sends tremors through the city. Tears throughout Hadriel open wider and allow for various demons to burst through and terrorize the various citizens. Demons will be tearing through in all corners of the city, though you can choose to avoid them if you like.

Look out for Pride and Rage demons, who attempt to brute force their way to you and feed off of your anger, steel yourselves against Despair and Fear demons who grow stronger as you give up hope, and definitely cross the street to avoid the Desire demons, who can take either male or female forms and will offer you everything you want if you just let them in.

Demons will either focus on attacking you or tempting you by taking advantage of and feeding off of your basic emotions. Agreeing to let a demon help you and mentally folding to it generally means that the demon will begin to possess you and start calling the shots- often using you as a vessel to hurt others and sow discord. If you happen to have any sort of magical abilities, extended possession can lead toward becoming an abomination after the corruption takes root.

So... you might want to avoid all of that. Luckily, there are some good things happening that can distract you- along with the demons, several nugs and fennec foxes will also pop up around the city, and if you don't want them to die a horrible death to a hungry demon, you might consider adopting them. In addition, you may find a random potion laying around- maybe this can help you fight off those demons, or maybe it'll make every nug in the city love you- or maybe it's secretly a jar of bees. Wouldn't be the first time you guys let bees in jars get a little out of hand.

[Nick didn't ask for any of this.

She was home - making a new life for herself, with a new name, a new identity, a fresh start with the horrors of this place behind her. Having it cruelly ripped away, being brought back - it's hard to wake up in her apartment every day, knowing that she was free and now she's not.

It's hard, but Nick is surviving. That's what she tells herself every morning - she is still breathing, so she is still surviving, and she will continue to do so until her last breath, which will be a long goddamn time from now, if Nick has any say in the matter.

She's fallen back into her old routine, working at Delight's bar, pouring drinks and lending a patient ear for the bar's patrons. The semi-regular horror show of bullshit the gods in this place like to put people through is part of that routine, but this time, something is different. Nick has survived an entire year's worth of events, mostly by hunkering down and waiting it out.

But this time, something inside of her snaps.

It has been a long, long time since she's actively gone out picking fights - something she did more as a teenager, angry, with something to prove, ready to fight the entire small world of the town that birthed and raised and shaped her. She's been in fights since, too, but they were targeted affairs, usually proving a point or simply refusing to be pushed around.

She has had enough of this bullshit. And for once, she remembers that there is something she can do about it.

She can fight.

Nick has only ever fought in Morphus when provoked - defending herself against something that has tried to harm her and her friends, or when Rage sent her into a blind, murderous fury. Nick has never actively responded to a threat when it hasn't been directly aimed at her - until now.

Because she is angry - about being here again, about being fucked with again - and she's not going to run anymore. She isn't going to hide. She's going to fight back.

So when she crosses paths with Leliana, it's as her monstrous doll self, wearing impractical black ribbons and ruffles and lace, a fissure cracked across her porcelain forehead, hands raised to aim and shoot black energy bolts at the demon she's currently facing. Her voice has a hollow, distorted quality to it, not entirely human-sounding, but still recognizable as Nick for anyone who may have heard her speak before.]

Take that, you motherfucker!
