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.

[This hasn't been much of a patrol so much as a hunt. In light of recent events, Rey has enough pent up aggression to make a wolverine timid. Sometimes they make attempts to communicate. To entice. But they're not given much time before they're hacked or shot or cooked alive, and then they're just not.

[Turns out this is a much-needed catharsis.

[Despite sporting a few cuts and bruises here and there, she's walked out of some scrapes relatively unmaimed. It doesn't come as much of a shock that she were to find someone not having an easier time.

[Stopping in front of the alley, Rey looks ahead, and then to her left. There's one of those things making its way between the two buildings, more distracted by someone trapped on the other side of it. A part of Rey would have used such an opportunity as a distraction for the enemy. But that part of her is long dead and silent then.

[Pistol drawn, she fires off several well-placed shots while approaching the green demon. It jerks forward, twelve holes puncturing the back of its head.]


Hey there, fuckchop. Turn around.

[She closes in on herself as the shots ring out, but when it becomes apparent she's not hurt, Alphys glances a look upward to her would-be savior as the demon shakily turns away from her, obviously injured. If this were an anime, Alphys' eyes would've swelled to the size of dinner plates at the action. Frankly, she wouldn't be surprised if they did anyway. She feels like a princess, or, or-- gosh, like the Rose Bride and her Knight, being whisked from danger--

Well, that's a hell of a way to romanticize being crammed into an alleyway corner in a dirty labcoat, at least. But at least the demon has turned it's attention towards Rey, albiet looking as if it's going to dissipate at any moment. Alphys continues to look, awestruck, trying to make a little sound or movement as possible until the damn thing is gone.]

[Unaware of the wonder the lizard woman is expressing, Rey keeps her attention on the creature between them. Demon, she's sure she heard them being called. Names don't really matter to her one way or another. Most things will burn the same way.

[She swings her free arm up, heatwaves following her motion as flames erupt from the bottom of the demon towards its torso. But before the fires can reach its head and consume it completely, it's--

[Just gone, leaving only wisps of smoky black behind.

[Arm lowering but her other hand still gripping the gun, she blinks. Looks around, before down at the small, wide-eyed lizard.]


Guess it's gone. [For now?] You should get somewhere safe. That isn't here.

[It takes pretty much everything she has not to outright yell when Rey just lights the demon up. Ohhhhmygod she has fire magic that's so cool. She's amazing. This is amazing.

It takes her like, a solid five seconds after Rey speaks to realize she's speaking to her and she needs to respond and not just sit there totally starstruck.]


Oh. Uhm. Right! Y-Yes, uh, thank you, I'm sorry, I was, uhm, o-on my way home, but I didn't think it would be good to, uh, bring it home w-with me? You know. And stuff. Oh gosh.

[She's finally getting herself off the ground now, albiet still blown the hell away.]

Thank you. Again, uh, r-really.

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-11-24 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[All things considered, she probably had the right idea not to lead that damned thing to wherever she was staying. This now puts Rey in a spot: She can't just leave without knowing for certain that this one is safe. If anything happened, she may as well be at fault for it.

[Sigh.]


No worries.

[She shrugs dismissively before turning to the entrance of the alley, glancing around for any sign of other creatures on the streets.] Can escort you back to your place, if you'd like. Where are you staying?
sciencelizard: (« [Whoops] /MISTAKE/)

[personal profile] sciencelizard 2016-11-30 05:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh. Oh gosh they're gonna... walk together??? She's offering. She gulps, trying to pull herself together, because, oh my god don't be rude about this. Seriously. Hold it together.]

Oh, uhm, if that's okay, I mean, I don't want to h-hold you up from where, uh, you were going? Or if you were busy, or-- uh, nevermind. I'm uhm, over in Delight's a-apartments.

[She approaches Rey, smiling gently.]

Thank you, r-really, uh, I appreciate--

[She stops, abruptly, going rigid as the ground around them starts to ripple, certain spots lighting up in circles around them, and a few begin to spit out wraiths, drifting towards them both. Alphys lets out a small shriek, immediately backing up and about to grip to Rey's side before thinking better of it.]

Haha. Oh, okay. This is happening. Ohmyg-god.
circumitus: I ONLY KNOW HOLA. (EVERYONE IS SPEAKING SPANISH)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-12-01 02:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Delight's apartments. Great. Rey doesn't have anything against them -- or Delight herself. She's just never been fond of the thought of being kept underground, let alone living there.

[Before she speaks, however, Alphys comes to a sudden halt. And so does she, casting her attention towards the ghostly shapes manifesting from the open tears of light.

[Having dealt with the manner of wraiths in the tunnels, Rey has no intention of seeing whether or not her hits can land through these apparitions. If she was on her own, perhaps she would. Just not when there's someone else to be concerned about who doesn't seem as capable in these situations.]


Run.

[Rather than waiting for Alphys to carry her own feet, Rey hoists her up under one arm and charges between a couple wraiths.]

[She lets out a small shriek, because one second she's on the ground and the next second she is totally not. In fact, she's in a space she hasn't been in a long time- underneath a strong woman's bicep, with a great look at said woman's ass.

This is so much. This is almost too much for her. She'd probably just die if her mind wasn't still focused on the fact that there's demons chasing them both, so she tries not to be jostled and double tries not to pass out and become dead weight.

But ohmygod she got picked up like she was nothing--

No. No, Alphys, stay focused, ohmygod.

Meanwhile, the Wraiths are refocusing on their position, after realizing their targets have moved, and falling into line to give chase.]


Uh, t-they're still coming! Do you know, uh, what these things are??

[Boots scuffle across the city road as Rey makes a deft twist around a corner, not once faltering in her hold over Alphys when she dashes down the next street. Briefly she checks over her shoulder, getting a good look at the status of the wraiths moving in. Rey could probably handle them, but backed up in a corner with a lizard lady on her six never struck her as the best course of action.

[So she makes her way through the shopping districts, past Emily's sewing shop and farther still.]


Well. People said something on the network about demons or some shit.

[When she speaks, she is hardly even out of breath. Because when you're supposed to be a soldier who is expected to haul hundreds of pounds on your back for hundreds of miles, you're pretty much built Ford tough. The only reason she starts to slow down after several seconds is because she sees an opening up ahead.]

Hang tight. Going to try something. Don't wiggle or whatever.
sciencelizard: (« [Embarrassed] BAWWWWWWWW)

[personal profile] sciencelizard 2016-12-08 03:47 am (UTC)(link)
[This woman is carrying Alphys like she's nothing, and she silently thanks whoever might be listening that monsters don't have hearts and therefore her heart isn't beating wildly like a shoujo anime meet-cute right about now. But hearing her speak with certainty just makes her think of Undyne again, and she has to suppress a scream. Thankfully, it's easy to keep her mind off being carried, seeing as she's facing a bunch of literal demons, and their commotion is only likely to draw more.

She does, however, recognize that Rey said something a few seconds after she says it, and nods, then sputters out an actual answer after realizing she can't see her.]


O-Okay. Be, uh, be careful?
circumitus: and me reduced to ash. (the hazards of love)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-12-12 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[Being "careful" isn't exactly Rey's strong suit on her own. When it's someone else on the line, however, things change.

[Squeezing Alphys, tucked under her arm, Rey charges towards the side of a building. Before launching herself at the wall. One foot kicks at the surface. Then the other lands on a crate placed next to the alleyway floor. Her feet bouncing off one side of a building to the other. Until she grasps the ledge of the store roof with her free hand.

[With a swing, she hurls Alphys over her head. Swift motions sending the lizard lady onto the flat rooftop to land either gracefully or not, while she herself hangs over the side for now.]
sciencelizard: (« [Scared] HAHA YEAH RIGHT)

[personal profile] sciencelizard 2016-12-19 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh god. Oh god they're on the ground and then absolutely not. It's graceful, soaring, weightlessness--

Wait. She's literally flying. She is going through the air. And the floor is coming up awfully fast.

She lands with a rather inarticulate thump on her side, her tail thankfully allowing her to stand up easier without dropping after the impact. She flew! Well, she crashed. But close enough! She smiles, looking around for her savior, and squints a bit when she sees nothing... until the hand. Ohgod. She squeaks, scrambling towards the edge.]


Here, ohmygosh, take my hand, d-don't fall!

[She's not even in the ballpark of being as strong as Rey, but she carries heavy robot parts around just fine- she could manage a lifting sprint, as it were.]
circumitus: You owe me waffles (sunrise bitch.)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-12-24 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
[By her firm grip of the rooftop, Rey isn't plummeting anytime soon. And unless Alphys can manage anything over 300lbs, she doesn't swing her entire weight into her offered hand. Rather, she uses it to support her balance while she pulls herself up with her other arm. Muscles straining but effortlessly hauling her weight over the ledge, toward the platform atop the shop. Her feet kick the wall, helping to pull herself over and collapsing onto the roof with little grace.

[After a few seconds, she gathers her nerves and drags herself back onto her feet, glancing over the ledge. The chasing demons seem to be attempting to pursue them farther down the street, rather than above. When one starts to deviate towards the alleyway, Rey steps back to avoid being seen.]


We'll be fine. [Some assurance never hurts, right?]
sciencelizard: (« [Anxious] Tiny Hands)

[personal profile] sciencelizard 2016-12-28 08:20 am (UTC)(link)
[She's lucky if she could reliably carry 100 pounds, but at least Rey's not dangling off a rooftop, so that's a better start, all things considered. Once she's up, Alphys backs away, trying to give her some space, though anxiously peering at her and over towards the edge.]

That's, uhm, I mean... t-thank you. Are you h-hurt, or, uhm, anything? I mean, I hope not. You seem ok. But that was also, uh, really f-fast! And probably complicated.

... And that was, uhm, a l-long way to ask if you're alright. And. Stuff.

[Swing and a miss. Her anxiety is creeping up on her hard here, but she's trying to be as little of a goofball as possible when the threat of getting caught by demons is still very much imminent.]
circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-12-29 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
[And stuff.

[If Rey has any inkling on how anxious Alphys is, she doesn't seem to show it. Or care, for that matter. She's more preoccupied with scoping the layout of the area. Studying for the most efficient escape route.]


Am fine. Should probably stick to the roofs for as long as we can, until we're close to your place.

[While Alphys doesn't exactly appear to be a nimble sort, it should be no question now that Rey has little trouble carrying the extra weight.]
sciencelizard: (« [Anxiety] Look sometimes...)

[personal profile] sciencelizard 2017-01-04 11:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, that's nice for something, considering Alphys is an anxious mess 99% of the time with an unfortunate lack of understatement on that statistic. She's still nervously looking over the lip of the roof, but pulls back when Rey speaks.]

Oh, uhm, well, y-yes. That sounds like it would be the least, uhm, dangerous thing. Because, uhm, we are s-somehow in a position where, uh, jumping on rooftops is more safe than walking. On t-the ground.

[She's not panicking you're panicking ooohnmygod. She adjusts her glasses just for something to do with her hands.]

Well, uhm, I'm not sure exactly, uh, the direction we're s-supposed to be going from here, but uhm, this place isn't, uh, incredibly big, so, uhm, can't be that hard, right?
