Event Log: The Seven Days of Hadriel

Who: All characters participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Seven Days of Hadriel event
Where: All over the city!
When: April 17th-April 23rd
Warnings: Delicious food, a week full of fun, and nothing terrible at all.

After everything that went down when the city split, the residents of Hadriel deserve a break - and the gods are trying to give them one. For a week, each god will be taking one day to throw an event of their choosing. Nothing is mandatory, nothing is designed to manipulate, so relax and have a good time!

On April 17th, Hope is holding a grand feast. The dried and canned food usually found in the shops is replaced with tables of freshly-made dishes, ready to be eaten. There are foods of all kinds here, familiar and very strange, and each different one is marked with its ingredients. There's bound to be something you'll like, so stuff your face, take a box or three of leftovers home, and gain a few pounds!

On April 18th, a racetrack appears near the moped lot, and Tranquility starts holding moped races! There will be quite a few different races held across the day, so stop by any time - drawn by the thrilling revving of moped motors, no doubt - and race your fast friends and your furious enemies for the grand prize: bragging rights.

On April 19th, Rage takes over the arena for that most brutal and vicious of fights, a pillow war. Anyone stopping by will find stacks of pillows of various shapes, sizes, and densities, all ready to be pick up and used to wallop the person next to you in the face. So work out some of that aggression!

On April 20th, Confusion sets up her hedge maze near the orchard. This twisty, confusing labyrinth can keep you occupied for quite awhile - though if you get too confused or lost, you can always tap out and be instantly transported back to the entrance! Do your best, though, and you might make it to the end - where two lucky winners get a magical compass prize, and the rest get, well, a less magical one. Your two lucky winners this time are Sans and Richie Gecko! Enjoy your prizes!

On April 21st, Love is ready to help all of you find a little more love in your lives. Stop by the Speakeasy (the owners of which are super stoked about this) to get the name of someone to go on a romantic (or platonic!) date with. Successful dates not guaranteed, but Love is not terrible at their job - the name you'll get will, at the very least, be someone you can get along with.

On April 22nd the library gets a little livelier with Delight's open mic! Stop by to show off your singing skills, display your master poetry craftsmanship, or tell a funny story. Got another talent you want to show off? Sure! Jugging flaming batons, messing up amateur magic tricks, sword-swallowing - everything's welcome!

And finally, on April 23rd, Sorrow will close the week with a formal masquerade. Masks are not required, but formalwear is, and can be found throughout the shops. Spend the evening listening to tasteful music, nibbling at refreshments, and maybe finally getting a dance with that guy, girl, or non-gendered being of your dreams. Dance the night away, assured that no one will be turning into a pumpkin, and wake up the next morning feeling relaxed and appreciated for all that you've done for the gods.

Attend all the events, none at all, or just a few! It's entirely up to you.

► This log covers April 17th-April 23rd.
► Feel free to make your own logs, as well
► Please tag headers of threads with content warnings where they apply
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!
► If you somehow manage to die during a completely non-dangerous week, please let us know here, and rethink your life choices.

In contrast to Marian's poor posturing, Rey is surprisingly well mannered in terms of appearance. Well, if not for the combat boots clashing with the dress Bianca had picked for her. Though the memories be fabricated, she is still a soldier at heart, maintaining the same bearing and disposition of one attempting to be at their best behavior. After the little stunt at spreading mischief during Love's date endeavors, held at her own goddamned Speakeasy, the occasion indeed calls for it.

Hardly the social butterfly herself, she meanders the scene for a bit, drinking and chatting on occasion. No mask covers her scarred face, which is probably for the best when she notices Marian and says the first thing that comes to mind when she looks at the other woman.

"Do you ever take that thing off your back?"

No doubt the most obvious question, and it'd be surprising if Marian hasn't heard it before.

Or perhaps not, given the crazy variety of people and creatures and robots here. She's gotten a few odd looks here and there, but since, in Marian's opinion, the less said the better, she's never offered any real explanation.

In fact it's worked out quite well overall: after her initial fears of someone finding out and trying to steal it for what would no doubt be a flawed idea from the start, very few people have paid it the slightest mind. But there's still the lingering uncertainty and concern over what could happen if someone with no idea tried to use it and created a paradox... Marian's run the figures and although she hasn't confirmed what would happen, she doesn't want to try.

The benefits of having it as a useful, if dangerous, tool are also not lost on her.

So when Rey actively brings it up, there's a faintly anxious widening of her eyes before she glances away. There's no good answer or explanation here. "No. It's better if you don't ask," she says flatly. There has to be something to change the conversation to before she gets asked why not to ask.

"I suppose you're glad that the 'gods' decide to move the river along with the city each time we change locations," she says sourly, her mind clearly on things other than enjoying the ball.
circumitus: I honestly wish I could say that I was surprised. (so you threw a sword at me last night)

Rey knows when someone wants a subject dropped. If her initial experience with Love and the events that followed taught her anything, it's to stay out of people's business. She'd be a hypocrite otherwise.

Whatever reason Marian would have to bar further questions regarding that device, it isn't Rey's concern anymore.

Instead, she just gives the woman a nonplussed look. "Why would...?"

And then it dawns on her.

"Oh, right. Well, guess Fear wouldn't want to lead us into thinking that something was amiss. Though we probably should've known when the tunnels changed," she adds, muttering. "Am just glad that the dam wasn't seriously damaged during the split. Would hate to have to rebuild that shit."

"They'll let us have our toys, as long as we behave," is Marian's cynical, acrimonious reply as she surveys the crowd. "Give them what they want. Didn't you say you had to make a deal with one of them for some parts?"
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-25 02:12 pm (UTC)(link)
She nods.

"Just had to kill some monsters for them. Nothing that couldn't be handled." Ironically, wiping out the things in the tunnels was an easier bargain than Hope's alternative -- inspire people. Rey doesn't know how to do that. "The deal with Sorrow was more of a mutually beneficial agreement, though."

The side-eyeing is real on that one. Marian didn't start with a high opinion of the gods, and now, anyone actively aiding them in any way seems suspicious at best.

"What does that mean?" she snaps.
circumitus: Because you're marine grade... You rascal. (you need 400 proof or marine proof)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-28 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
No one would blame Marian for the side-eye, and certainly not Rey. There are many reasons for anybody to be skeptical towards one who appears to have no qualms in offering aid to a dubious party.

"It means we can use them in just about the same way that they use us."

To her, it's as simple as that.

"Whatever trinkets you get from them aren't worth the price," is Marian's firm opinion, jaw set. Especially now. The longer she stays here, watching other people enjoy themselves after the dark days of the city being cut in half, just puts her off even more. All these people resigned to total inaction and accepting whatever the parasitic 'gods' deign to bestow upon them.

"You make it sound like it's a materialistic thing. It's not," Rey quips. "Have only ever agreed to things that would benefit others. And if there is something they can provide that is able to help others, wouldn't hesitate to do it."

Such as rushing into monster-infested tunnels to make sure she has synthetic parts to keep her roommate from falling to pieces.

For family, they're worth it.

"It's a temporary gain that keeps them fed and happy while we're still forced to struggle," she replies snappily enough.

It's not entirely a fair assessment. 'Happy' isn't exactly what anyone would have called the gods during the time the city was split. But considering how little information they deign to share, Marian doesn't quite trust anything they put on the network, including their familial spats.

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-09 02:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"Honestly, they seem too busy worrying about not dying again to be described as 'happy'. If anything, they're probably more afraid than we are right now."

A sentiment that Rey can understand all too well, having died numerous times before, and mostly in painful ways.

And yes, she has taken what they've shared so far at face value. But Sorrow has become someone she's learned to trust, maybe against her better judgement.
