Event Post: Everyone Chill

Who: Everyone participating in the event!
What: The event log for Tranquility's resurrection event!
Where: All around the city
When: December 27th-January 7th
Warnings: Absolutely nothing creepy or weird at all.

The revival of Tranquility on December 27th marks a vast - if temporary, and actually completely fake - change to the city. Upon awakening that morning, the inhabitants of Hadriel will find the city changed from its usual broken-down dour cave self into a sparkling, clean, delightful island city. Instead of being surrounded by hard stone walls, the city is surrounded by warm ocean waters and soft white sand beaches.

Gentle waves lap at the shore, the sky overhead is perfect, wide and open. The spires have been replaced by shining skyscrapers, the roads are clear of rubble and paved neatly. The stores are quaint, windows no longer broken, and the items inside have changed too. Instead of simple canned goods and strange clothing, you might find delicate pastries, cool drinks, fresh fruit, and flowy summer clothes to match the city. How nice! How calming, really. Didn't everyone need a vacation? So throw on some flip-flops, grab one of the mopeds that have been provided, and enjoy yourselves!

As the days go on, though, you might notice one or two odd things. Maybe the pretty sun hat you picked up looked, for just a moment, like a grubby old baseball cap instead. Maybe that beach ball is a little heavier than it should be. Maybe the shining wall of that skyscraper feels more like stone than glass. Maybe - just for an instant - the sky above was solid rock instead of the gentle, calming hues of the sunset.

While there is a mild compulsion toward calmness and tranquility, towards accepting the city for exactly what it seems to be, that can be ignored - and the illusion can be broken, if you choose to try. But do you really want to? Isn't that croissant much nicer than yet another can of beans? Wouldn't you rather relax at the beach than run around, trying to convince all your friends that this is just the gods getting inside their heads again in an even more creepy and all-encompassing way than usual?

Come on. Don't be a buzzkill.

To be completely fair, Alphys doesn't have what could be considered a 'style' either, considering she's been known to wear the same lab coat every single day and have really only one decent dress, but she's always been a fan of those nice patterns and soft fabrics, even if she doesn't think they'll suit her. She's been looking around longingly at the new things the Gods have given, ducking between shops and touching everything before slipping out. Alphys is distracted as she walks towards the shop Rey is in, thinking about if she might actually try something this time, when she feels something wet on her feet, looks down at the puddle, and then up towards the store.

Oh. Oh, okay. Rey is inside. Dripping wet, even!

It's a god damned miracle she does not pass out on the floor, all things considered.

Alphys stands, staring Rey's direction for a few seconds before she finally decides to actually speak to the other woman as oppose to just running away to die somewhere. "Are you, uhm, l-looking for, uh, something dry? I mean, uhm, it looks like it'd look nice. Uh. On y-you. If you wanted to wear it? Or not, uh, it's u-up to you!"

She is incredibly smooth.

The smoothest of science lizards.

Rey's eyes dart towards the owner of that shaky voice before they shift back to the dress in her hand. For some reason, Alphys looks just as starstruck as she did when they first met, or maybe that's just how she always is.

"Thank you," she just blurts instinctively, if only to try and help put Alphys' apparent tension at ease. "Am thinking of picking out something like this for someone else. Think she'd look better in these than..." She pauses. "Well, she'd look better."

It doesn't matter to Rey what Bianca wears, but she likes flashy, pretty things and Rey likes flashy and pretty things on her. Never thought to be the one to wear them herself. Outside of one special occasion, that is. But that was years ago and for an occasion. It was nice.

Alphys is in a constant state of looking starstruck around anyone with biceps at Rey's level, so there's an incredibly small chance she'll ever see her in a state other than this, unless it's pure panic. She taps her small claws together just to ground herself, but at least Rey is talking and she has something to respond to and she can pretend she is not feeling like she should turn on her heel and run like hell to avoid embarrassing herself further.

Instead, she talks, which is guaranteed to make her look more like a complete idiot.

"I think t-they would look nice on you." Oh god, why did she say that. Out loud even. Fuck. "I mean, uhm, if, y-you wanted, but uh, I'm sure this other person would, uhm, also l-look nice too! Are they... uh, h-here?" She kicks herself a little bit more in her head for that one, buuut it's out there now, so there's no taking that back, and now they're having an Actual Conversation She Can't Back Out Of. Goodness. Why is she so hopeless.

What a weird creature.

Rey can't help but wonder if they're all like that, or if Alphys just has a condition. But then, leave that assumption up to someone with minimal social skills, let alone social skills that help you talk to someone with chronic anxiety.

"Um, yes. We met here, actually."

It's cool, Rey, it's not just you. Alphys is just a grade-A disaster case.

"Oh! That's, uhm, t-that's so sweet." It does sound cute, getting thrown into another world and meeting someone... that almost makes this place sound like a magical destiny type world, as oppose to the, uh, mess it really is. It'd be a nice thing to hold onto at least. "Maybe, uhm, if you find something that suits her, y-you can bring it to her later to show you were thinking about her!"

At least, that's what Alphys would do. If she had the nerve. "Or, uhm, I mean, you could wear it too, or... y-you could get, uh, matching stuff, maybe?"
circumitus: There's my chippy! (where's my chippy?)

Then Alphys is in a pretty good place. There are fewer here who aren't disaster cases themselves.

"Maybe." Her mouth twists into an uncertain look as she glances to the assorted dresses. "Know anything that'd match a small, dark, and pretty type? Never got into this shopping thing. Or clothes. Though, doubt you could call this 'shopping' since we're not technically buying anything. Guess that makes us more like charity cases or something."

This is probably the most Rey has ever rambled about anything. Treading new territory like this does that.

Haha, oh god, she's asking her for advice. Oh christ.

"Well, uhm, I'm not uh, m-much the shopping type myself. Well, I mean, I like clothes and that sort of thing, but there's never really an, uh, o-opportunity to wear anything nice, you know? But, uh, maybe t-think about the sort of stuff she, uh, usually wears? Or, uhm, maybe something that would compliment her f-features, like her hair or her eyes?" I mean, that's how anime girls do it, right? They all have associated color schemes?? That'll work in real life. Yes.

Why it is that the nerdy scientist lizard is Rey's go-to for fashion advice, the world may never know. Truth is, Alphys is there and seems willing to offer her two cents, and that aloe is good enough for Rey.

"Mm," she muses, picking out a deep red dress that shines in the light. Floral patterns, like many of the designs in this shop, also give off a reflective look. "She has dark hair and eyes. Red goes good with black, right?"

Bianca would like red. Blood is red. And Bianca has an appreciation for blood, it seems.

"Uhm, p-probably." Let's be real, she has no idea what she's talking about, but Mettaton always talked about having an eye for color and things that went with each other. Even if his entire aesthetic was pink and black. Red is almost pink? That's as much as she can pull.

"But, uh, I'm sure she'd a-appreciate just you thinking of her." She adds hastily. "I mean, uhm, I know it always feels nice when p-people just, get you stuff because they're t-thinking about you. Especially since, uh, none of this costs anything, so, e-even if she doesn't like it, there's uh, no real consequence, right?"
