Event Log: Dead Ringers

Who: Everyone participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Dead Ringers event!
Where: All around the city
When: January 16th-January 25th
Warnings: Evil doubles, so we can assume manipulation, violence, murder, and maybe some nasty words

Everything seems normal on the morning of the 16th - actually, everything seems normal about the city for the entirety of this event. Nothing is strange, nothing is obviously wrong. Well, except that the population has mysteriously doubled, and the new residents each look exactly like one of the old residents. So weird! Definitely not ominous at all.

At least until your new double gets down to business. After all, their only goal is to ruin your life, and that can take any form. Smashing your favorite coffee cup? Telling your worst enemy they're right? Kissing someone else in front of your girlfriend? Brutally murdering you and then hiding your body in a closet so they can more effectively destroy your life? The possibilities are truly endless, and the only way to protect yourself is to kill your double first. They're not really open to negotiation, after all - but they sure might pretend to be in order to trick you.

So watch your back, and try to make sure that really is your best friend and not an evil clone masquerading as them. Boy, that would be awkward. If you can stick it out until January 25th, good for you! But if you didn't manage to and your double survives until the end - well, just as a final 'fuck you', there's a chance you'll come back to life and remember every awful thing your double did. Hey, at least that'll make it easier to fix, right?

[At one point, Rey would have chalked up what she had seen to be just a flicker of a memory. Images sent to her by one of the "ghosts" in her head. She remembers things in a flash sometimes.

[Seeing that she has had no such memories of a young goat-person other than the Rey of the present, she can hazard a guess that this is real. Not just something that one of her many selves is forcing her to see.

[So she graces "Asriel's" question with a glower, despite his sweet face.]

No. Am pretty familiar with ghosts. And that wasn't it.

[By now she has sensed something amiss with people. Many of them not acting like themselves. This might be no different.]
youplayedyourself: Always cheerful (* Coreopsis)

No? Gosh, you've got a pretty scary look on your face. Did I do something bad...?

[He smiles, puts on that simpering, dewy-eyed sad look of his. Like he's willing to suffer nobly, willing to apologize even for things he didn't do, like he's so very good that nobody could possibly ever connect him to all the dust and blood that's nourished his roots.]

I just wanted to play. Everyone's looking so sad lately! I should be doing something to turn all those frowns upside down, right?
circumitus: You owe me waffles (sunrise bitch.)

[Rey neither knows nor has she spent enough time with Asriel to tell the difference between what is normal behavior for him. But seeing that all too many people have lost their damned minds around here, and considering what she saw, one can only make an educated guess.]

And how would you plan to do that?
youplayedyourself: Ardent attachment, fun, lightness, levity (* Delphinium)

[personal profile] youplayedyourself 2017-01-21 11:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Why, by spreading a little LOVE, of course!

[He beams, pulling on another of those expressions that are more at home on an entirely different face. Winks, sticks his tongue out, practically lets a whimsical little star float out of him like he's just a walking cartoon character.]

Would you like some LOVE, too? I bet you've already got plenty, but there's no such thing as too much!
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-01-23 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, that's... different.

[Rey blinks, receding a step. Less out of fear and more of a futile attempt to try and gauge what in the hell is happening.]

That's a kind offer, but will pass. [Ugh.] Has everyone lost their fucking minds lately?
youplayedyourself: Frigidity, coldness, thanks for understanding me (* Hydrangea)

[personal profile] youplayedyourself 2017-01-26 01:23 am (UTC)(link)
Golly, that's too bad. Guess you really do have enough LOVE of your own already.

[Well, he doesn't need violence to ruin the real Asriel's life. All he has to do is be honest!]

You know, I wouldn't call it losing our minds. There's nothing here that didn't exist within all of us already. We're all just... getting to know each other better, aren't we?
circumitus: What could possibly go wrong? (11% beer and firearms)

[Her brows furrow at the kid's response. His use of the word "love" is interesting, without Rey's understanding of the significance of "LOVE". Oh well.]

Don't really see how getting nearly killed by something trying to look like a friend is helping to know them any better.

[Stupid not!Firo.]
youplayedyourself: Mistrust (* Lavender)

[personal profile] youplayedyourself 2017-02-05 07:11 pm (UTC)(link)
No? But that seems pretty clear to me!

Doesn't it prove that they have it in them? That even your best friend will cut you into little, screaming pieces if they think they can get away with it? That you can't trust anything but yourself?

You should be happy. You're lucky, in fact. I had to figure that one out the HARD way, without any doubles to spell it out for me.
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)

You aren't wrong. Not entirely, anyway.

[The robotic tone in her voice has changed, no longer removing herself from the subject altogether. It isn't like there's any point in pretending, anyway -- this is clearly not the same cheerful, childlike goat she had met before.

[But it sure does explain some things. Like why a child such as Asriel would end up in a place like this.]

Everyone has it in them to hurt others. Even the most devoted peacekeeper can be driven to the edge under extreme circumstances.

[Her eyes narrow; her expression sobering.] But if you think I didn't learn the hard way, either -- that's where you're wrong.
