Intro Log: Ten Thousand Lightning Bugs

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for May.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: May 10th-16th
Warnings: Confused newbies, pretty fireflies, stuff getting lit on fire


Awakening in Hadriel is perhaps not the most wonderful thing, but as you pry yourself off the hard ground of the colosseum, you may notice that the Door (or possibly one of the gods?) has seen fit to provide you with a little entertainment. Scattered across the ground are a number of handheld video games. These cheap pieces of shit lovingly crafted products can each provide you with whole minutes of entertainment, at least until you get frustrated and smash them to pieces. Have fun!

But not too much fun. If you get too involved in that game, you might miss the approach of some glowing little creatures - guardian fireflies, from the movie Atlantis. Should they land on anything flammable - and yes, that includes you and your hair - it'll burst into flames. Smash them, and they'll explode in a tiny ball of flame, too. There'll be a couple hundred of these things flying around Hadriel, so let's hope you left your stash of gunpowder at home. With the window closed.

Once you've stopped dropped and rolled, feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

► This log covers May 10th-16th.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well!
► All characters arrive with phones that have network communication.
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

"Probably not." Nick sighs loudly and rolls her eyes, then turns to face the girl who's spoken to her. A yuppie in training, from the looks of her; she's seen a thousand girls like her before, perfect and polished and probably never heard the word no, a sharp contrast to Nick, who is nothing but want and rough edges. Girls like her (what she assumes she's like, at least) make Nick sick. Her expression sours a fractional amount.

"What do you want?"
outermirrors: (determined | I can do it)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-12 08:22 pm (UTC)(link)
She blinks, hands on her hips. Oh well that's helpful. Thank you so much for your immediate honesty. And she's not a yuppie? Maybe... Not the point. She's heard the word no plenty of times thanks she knows what it sounds like, what it means. She's even used it herself a few times. (A lot of times but details and also not the point.)

Instead of Ai backing down as the other girls attitude was probably meant to, Ai just raises an eyebrow unimpressed and remains exactly where she is. "I was going to ask about this place..." there was a time she would have followed that up with a snide remark about how she acted, but see she's actually trying to be a slightly less horrible person here so she's going to skip the commentary. "But if you can't help thanks for letting me know."
bekommen: (and now the old ways don't seem true.)

"It's called Hadriel," Nick says, with another impatient roll of her eyes. Nick doesn't pay a whole lot of attention to newcomers, but asking is an obvious giveaway. "It's a shithole full of monsters and assholes, and you're stuck here forever. Sucks to be you."

She shrugs. Tact is not Nick's middle name.

"What else d'you wanna know?"
outermirrors: (pouty)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-16 09:19 pm (UTC)(link)
There's about a half a second where Ai just looks somewhere between flabbergasted and surprised and then she just purses her lips, arms crossing over her chest and nods.

"Yeah you see a boy with gray hair by any chance? He might have been wearing a black uniform similar to my own."
bekommen: (mad bull lost its way.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-18 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
She thinks for a second, because the description does ring a bell for her. They only talked once, but he was a weird kid, so he stuck in her memory.

"Maybe ... kid with a bowlcut? Is his name Yu?" Which is still a thing she can't believe some parents named their child.
outermirrors: (talking / trying to make a good impressi)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-23 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
Ai used to think he was a complete goodie-goodie until he asked to skip class with her. His looks can be fairly deceiving.

"That's him." Wait until she hears what Ai's parent's named her, she'll love that. And no no jokes about if their dating or siblings or whatever are needed here. "So you've seen him here? Recently."
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-23 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. Couple weeks back." She nods, frowning with thought as she calls up the memory of their conversation. "He was standing outside the apartment spires, looking like a lost puppy, but that's the only time I saw him. Is he always so weird?"
outermirrors: (peacefull | drinking tea | on a date)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-23 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
She laughs a little at the description. It's so at odds with the last time she saw him. Yu was practically the only person that ever seemed to know what he was doing or what was going on and how to handle. "Depends what was he doing that was making him weird this time?"
bekommen: (mad bull lost its way.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-23 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
"I dunno." She folds her arms over her chest, thinking, trying to put her finger on exactly what it was about the boy that was so strange. "He seemed kinda out of it. Like maybe he was high or something?"
outermirrors: (curious | questioning | chin down)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-23 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
"He was high?" She asks in disbelief. There's something about that statement that just seems wrong. Yu was solid. He was a rock and the best student in her year. There was no way he did drugs of any kind.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-24 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
"I dunno, I'm not his mother." She shrugs, throwing up her hands. "I just said he seemed a little out of it. I didn't make a big deal out of it."
outermirrors: (looking back | curious)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-05-28 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Now she's really confused. Yu was the most collected and on top of things person she knew. There was exactly zero reason she could think of that he would be out of it. "That's weird. He's usually really well put together and on top of things."
bekommen: (and now the old ways don't seem true.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-29 05:37 am (UTC)(link)
"Maybe he was havin' a bad day." Nick sighs and throws up her hands. "Happens to the best of us, especially when we end up in a shithole like this."
outermirrors: (you sure | needs reassurance)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-06-01 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
She remains silent for a moment, contemplating that. "It's possible," she admits slowly, even if she doesn't really believe it. Like she said Yu was usually pretty well put together in general.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-06-03 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
Of course it's possible. Nick rolls her eyes - this girl's new, but this is still pretty obvious, in her opinion.

"Well, I don't know where he's staying, but if he's still here, you could prob'ly call him on this thing." She digs her Hadriel gods-issued phone out of her pocket and waves it slightly in her hand.
outermirrors: (looking back | curious)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-06-04 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Well yeah; it's just not normal. She lived and went to school with him for a year. Well lived in the same town as him anyway.

"Ah yeah I may try that in a moment." Well she would like to attempt to try looking for him first. Thank you Kate for giving her a crash course in Network access.
bekommen: (and now the old ways don't seem true.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-06-14 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
"Or you can try asking everyone else on this thing if they've seen him." She returns the phone to her pocket. "Everyone's all hooked up by the phones."
outermirrors: (pouty)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-06-19 05:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"I will," she snaps. "Just not with you looking over my shoulder."
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-07-04 07:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"Fine then." She throws up her hands and turns to leave. "Have fun playing hide and seek."
outermirrors: (Default)

[personal profile] outermirrors 2016-07-26 04:45 pm (UTC)(link)
"I will." Thank you for telling her he was around but there's no need for the attitude. Ai turns to leave herself, perfectly okay with the conversation ending.
