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?

[Nick's been patrolling the wall for a while now, his mind less worried about the folks on this side and more concerned with those he knows are on the other. He can't stay in his own little world forever though, not when there are others struggling with the sudden divide just as much as he is.

Or at least that's what he assumes is going on when he comes upon a girl hurling debris at the wall, given the absolute futility of such an act. He sighs -- a breath he didn't need, of course -- and speaks up as he approaches her, hoping not to startle her too badly. He knows how spooky his glowing eyes can be in the darkness.]


I'm guessing you've got friends on the other side, too.

[She does jump a little, but just buries any embarrassment under another layer of anger. It's fine. A good strategy.]

No, I'm pissed off because I hate rocks.

[Yikes. Sorry, Nick.]

[He can't help but smirk a little at her sharp answer.]

I wouldn't blame you for hating one big rock in particular.

[With his hands still in his coat pockets, he gives the earthen wall a kick himself before letting out another sigh. It's as sturdy as ever.]

I was hoping to find some crack in this thing, some way to the other side. No luck so far.

[She sighs too, long and tired. Nick's doing a good job of reminding her that she's directing her anger unfairly.]

Yeah. Sturdy as fuck. What a surprise!

[The rage is starting to lean a lot closer to sounding miserable.]

[It sure is. He takes a few steps closer, concern coloring his mechanical features.]

Who is it?

[He might as well ask. Or hell, maybe she's just mad at the gods for this mess in the first place. He can understand that.]

[She glances at him and just sighs, already growing used to the colorful citizens of Hadriel at this point. There are bigger things going on.]

A friend. And a kid. I'm worried about them.

[That's not all of it, but it's all she's comfortable saying. Ellie doesn't like being left behind.]

You?

The closest thing I have to a family in this place.

[Or that he's ever had -- the synthetic him, anyway.]

She's no kid and can take care of herself most of the time, but I'm worried about her, too. We've seen a lot of things happen to this city, but this is the first time we've ever been split off like this.

[Her expression softens.]

Geez. Sorry. That fucking sucks. I don't... I mean, I don't hate this place, but right now I do. For doing this to us. You know?
synthedick: (♣ restoring order)

[personal profile] synthedick 2017-04-15 08:05 am (UTC)(link)
[He gives Ellie a somber smile.]

Yeah, I know. There's a lot of good that can come from a place like this, but hell if it isn't hard to see during the tough times.

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-16 02:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Nick may not realize, but it's rare moment of vulnerability when she presses the heel of one hand to her eye and sucks in a sharp breath.]

I'm sick of it. I'm sick of caring and losing. What's the point of the good if this always happens.
synthedick: (♠ better living underground)

[personal profile] synthedick 2017-04-18 07:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Nick sighs to himself, noticing the way Ellie digs at her eyes, but politely not drawing attention to it. He's no stranger to the feeling of just wanting to give up -- of wondering what's the point in going on when it seems like everything he does is futile. It's something the real Nick Valentine experienced first hand, and something he's only touched on a time or two in his existence.

But he's a firm believer in finding purpose in the world. The search itself is as important as the answer in most cases -- maybe more so. That's not the kind of answer one wants to hear, but it's a truth he's come to accept over the years, even if he still hasn't accepted a lot of things about himself, about his creation, about the reason he's around at all.]


The good lets us know there's more to this place than this. [He makes a vague gesture toward the wall.] The good is what keeps us moving when the night gets a little bit darker, so we can get back to what makes life worth living in the first place.

[Well, relative living. Given he's a machine, he can't really claim to be doing any living at all.]

[But it never stays, she wants to insist. Instead, she realises just how much of herself she's put on display.

She just nods quickly a couple times, and dives away from the topic.]


Right.

You have any luck messaging the other side? I've tried, but either it bounces back or ends up kinda garbled.

That's about what I got when I tried it earlier. Nothing but static.

[Which isn't encouraging at all. He's come to like the little communicators since his arrival in Hadriel, appreciating how easy they made keeping in touch with other folks. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say.

That goes for people, too. Damnit.]


Guess the only thing we can do for now is hold down the fort and wait until we learn more. Figure out what it is we need to do to survive for the time being. Chances are we aren't getting any help from the folks who run this city.

[If his tone is any indication, Nick isn't very trusting of the gods.]

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-27 07:51 am (UTC)(link)
[She huffs in disappointment. Of course it's not just her phone bugging out. It makes more sense this way, but she was kind of still holding out hope anyway.

The tone doesn't bother her. She wouldn't trust Fear to hold a seat for someone.]


Grrrrrreat. So we're basically useless, aside from probably being used as batteries.
