Event Log: Oh Shit (B side)

Who: All the characters in Group B
What: The event log for Group B
Where: The right side of the city
When: The evening of March 28th-April 9th
Warnings: You're safe! But you're starving. Soon enough you'll be attacked by monsters, which will probably change both of those.

March 28th brings many changes into the city. First of all, that loving, dopey feeling? Gone. But you don't have too much time to mourn your affectionate side because, in addition to the humiliation of being voted in last, Love is also getting their personalized event overshadowed by the first major citywide disaster of Hadriel.

On the evening of the 28th, the city splits itself into two for some reason, isolating the left and right halves of the city. In the right half, if anyone tried to figure out where the other half of the city went, they'd find themselves staring down a massive rock wall- which is unfortunate, because this is the unlucky side without Hope. That means that after the split occurs, the lights flicker and die, the network takes far longer to get up, and what few stores there are will no longer be stocked with food.

The first two are solved within a couple of extra hours- dim lighting and profoundly glitchy network access will be created, particularly when attempting to contact anyone on the other side of the city. As if that isn't enough, without Hope there is no new food being stocked in the stores at first, and what is there isn't exactly being kept fresh and will run out within just a couple of days. Eventually, Love will try to substitute a replacement, but the bulk necessary to actually effectively feed everyone just isn't there, so enjoy your prolonged starvation!

That seems to be the main thing to worry about it until March 30th when the monsters begin to push and prod at Confusion's ineffective barriers and break through into the main city, where delicious meals (read: you) await them. The flow of monsters from the bestiary into the caves will seem almost unending, as we're stocked up on 18 months worth of them (and any/all offspring they may have created during that time).

Try to hunt some of them if you can, but watch out for the poisonous ones! It won't take long for hunger and thirst to start to settle in, so you might want to act fast. Additionally, since Hope is not present, there will be no revivals until the end of the event. You can deal with a minor permadeath setting, right?

[A gunshot rings through the street, and the giant beetle screeches- more in anger than pain, though. Ellie's shot grazed it, hopefully distracting it enough for Duck to get his bearings.

She shouts from behind the corner of an alley, gesturing to him.]

Hey!! Over here, quick!
quacked: ([fear] dad...)

[ For a wild moment, Duck thinks he's accidentally pulled the trigger on his own gun in his panic. Then he hears the shout, and sees a girl by the alley. He doesn't know who she is, but that doesn't matter now. Duck runs, as fast as he can, in her direction. He can hear the roars and screeches of the bug behind him, but he doesn't turn to check if its following him.

He skids to a stop in front of her, holding his injured arm and gun close to him, and only now turning to see the beetle start toward him again. He'll have to thank her a little later, getting away is more important now.
] We should go--

[She cuts him off.]

If we run, it follows us, and I don't know how fast this thing is.

[Ellie doesn't waste time explaining the rest: they have dumpsters to hide and take cover behind, it's not an open space, she doesn't know how fast Duck can run.]

You can use that, right? Use it!

[She nods her head frantically in the direction of his gun, and fires off several rounds straight into the huge body of the rapidly approaching creature.]
quacked: ([fear] you hear that)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-04-04 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
I- Yeah!

[ Duck knows she's right. So even while his arm throbs and a big part of him wants to run the other way, Duck uses his healthy arm to point his gun at the monster thrashing about under Ellie's fire.

His aim isn't great, but that doesn't really matter too much when the creature is as big as this thing is. Duck fires several shots, and most hit its body, one getting it right in the face, which seems to slow it a bit. He's got to be careful though - he hasn't got much ammo.

[She crows in approval when he hits it square in the face. The bug is still approaching them, but it seems to be drunk on it's feet, stumbling with pain and confusion. Ellie fires another shot into it's face once it's close enough, and then shouts out to Duck-]

Stop shooting! Hold fire! Get behind that dumpster!

[She belts outta their hiding place, slides straight under the creature, and tears it's belly open with her knife. She's spattered with the results and it's... not pretty.]
quacked: ([woah] wow!)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-04-17 10:33 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Duck quickly does as he's told, skidding behind one of the dumpsters, and peeping his head over the top to see what she's doing.

He's worried at first, when she disappears under the beast - but then he sees what she's doing, watches as beetle's guts pour out and the creature lets out a weak cry before seeming to fall in on itself. Clearly no more shots were needed now.

Duck runs out from his hiding place.

Wow, that was awesome - Are you... okay? [ That sure looks... gross. He hopes it's all the bug's blood and none of it is hers. ]
survivorsguilt: (➽ all your base are belong to us)

[It feels unnatural to take charge, even when that's what she's spent her life insisting she wants. Still, there was no way she was gonna let that thing get closer to Duck, in it's death throes or not.

She crawls out on her knees, and shakes her arms out in disgust. Ugh. Gross is accurate. Ellie wipes her face clean with the cleanest part of her shirt she can find, and sighs.]

Yeah. I'm cool. Just... really need a shower, now. You alright?

Awesome, huh? [That gets a little smile.]
quacked: ([fear] you hear that)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-04-21 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah... it got me, before, but - [ Duck rolls up his sleeve, wincing. There's a long gash along his forearm where the creature cut him with its pincers. It's not as deep as it could be at least. ] I'm okay, it's not so bad...

[ Putting on a brave face for her? Maybe, kinda. It does hurt a lot, but he tells himself he has had worse. ]

That was totally awesome though! You killed that giant thing with that tiny knife! It was like from a comic! [ Admittedly a bit bloodier than most comics Duck has read. ]

[Oh, geez. That... that does not look pretty. Ellie winces with him, and quickly slings her backpack off to start digging through it.

She doesn't really know how to take the compliments.]

Didn't do so bad yourself. You like comic books, then?

[She pulls out a water bottle with one hand, and a comic book with the other. She's gonna try to at least wash this wound clean, and maybe this could be the distraction he's gonna need.]

Wanna check this one out while I have a look at that arm?
quacked: ([ha] oh awesome!!)

guessing savage starlight is the comic in question - i can edit if not

[personal profile] quacked 2017-04-28 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
You have comics too?! [ If there's one sure way to distract Duck thoroughly and convince him this girl's the best person ever, revealing a comic book he hasn't read is sure to do the trick. He hasn't seen a comic that isn't one of nine he already has in years. ]

Yeah, I do! [ He reads the cover. ] "Savage Starlight"? Does it have superheroes?
survivorsguilt: (➽ pushing daisies)

nope you're totally right <3

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-05-09 02:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[She's just so delighted at the way his eyes light up. Fuck.]

Dude, you have no idea. Heroes in space! It's probably the only thing better than superpowers. They fight aliens, and survive on hostile planets... It's so cool. Go on, open it up.

[In the meantime, Ellie gets to work on that arm, cleaning it as best she can with only water and cloth. Yikers.]
quacked: ([fear] halp)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-05-13 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He does so, barely paying much attention to Ellie working on his arm, studying the picture carefully before reading anything. He's never read a comic all about heroes in space before. ]

I wish we were in a spaceship and not in a lame cave- [ He winces a little as the cloth goes over his cut. Only a little though. He's brave. ] I bet even when they have aliens attacking they can float and see stars and stuff.

[Super brave. Ellie ties it off and gives him a pat on the shoulder. Good job, kid.]

Yeah. I totally agree. Sucks not being able to see the stars at night.

[She nods at the comic.]

You can keep that for now, if you want.
quacked: ([ha] look at that)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-06-05 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks! [ For both the comic and the bandage. ] I have a bunch of comics, but I've read them all ten million times now.

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-06-08 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Same. I'll let you know if I find any new ones, alright?
quacked: ([ha] cool!!)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-06-12 09:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay, thanks! I've been looking but I haven't found any here yet.

[ It's only then he realises- ] My name's Duck, by the way. What's yours?
survivorsguilt: (➽ POW! right in the kisser)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-06-16 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
Me neither. [She shrugs.] But I'm not gonna stop looking.

Ellie. ...Is your name really Duck?

quacked: ([ha] I know!)

[personal profile] quacked 2017-06-18 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He grins. ] Yeah! Well, my real name's Kenny Junior - but Kenny's my dad's name, so everyone calls me Duck.
