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 The spires have been replaced by shining skyscrapers, the roads are clear of rubble and paved neatly.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.

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.
circumitus: - XOXO dad (time to smoke my breakfast)

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?"
