Intro Log: Well, that was fun

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for April as well as the city reunification log!
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: April 10th-15th
Warnings: Nothing at the moment! No monsters, and everyone is together again!

New arrivals are in for a treat this month with... actually, no impending monster attacks, for once! You guys are luckier than most who came before you, as the remaining monsters that had previously been terrorizing the city have been banished back into the caves and nothing new is coming out of the Door to take their place.

Still, the past few weeks haven't been easy on poor Hadriel, and the right half of the city is littered with monster corpses and rubble, extinguished flares and damaged barricades left by the citizens trapped there with all of the monsters in the caves. The left half has fared a little better, though the explosives have done a bit of a number on the outer areas of the city, but anyone looking for housing might want to start over there first.

To get there though, you'd have to get past the random assortment of candy dispensers, haphazardly scattered around the colosseum floor. At least... let's hope that they're candy.

Once you emerge into the city proper, you might find a few folks trying to get their bearings now that the city is reunited. Everyone is just trying to get back home and find their friends after a hellish few days, so what better time to meet someone new and try to clean up some of the city streets?

Now that you're out and wandering around monster-free, there's plenty of other distractions. Feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, a new monster, a project to help with, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

► This log covers April 10th-15th.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well!
► All characters arrive with phones that have network communication and the newbie guide installed.
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

[She wakes up in a place she's never bothered to visit before. Hope's temple.

Ellie shudders back into life with a shout that echoes around the building, hands flying to where her gun should be. It's not there. Neither is the crazy amount of pain she should be feeling, she notes absently. What the fuck. What the actual fuck.

A minute of stunned blinking and rapid breathing passes before she recalls everything, and realises what's happened. Right. No one really dies here, do they? Thankfully, her backpack was still on her when she went down screaming. Her weapons, it seems, were not. She feels a sick, awful jolt at the knowledge that her knife, the only thing she has of her mother's, isn't on her person.

She needs to find Sans, but even with guilt tripping her up, she has to find that knife, first.]

((feel free to find her either near the edge of the city, wandering around in search of her knife and gun, or later on, where she's actively trying to find and reunite with everyone!))

[Jo's been wandering for a while now. She takes a wavy route around the city but she's looking for people even if it seems random.

She turns onto a new street and catches sight of someone. Instead of calling out she heads closer, knowing the figure looks familiar. Soon she's close enough to breathe out a sign of relief. The girl had gone missing and Jo had to assume the worse...]

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-16 01:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Seeing everybody again for the second-first time has her more emotional than she would care to admit. Ellie runs towards Jo the moment she spots her, and reaches out to clasp her arm in relief.]

Hey. You're okay.

[Sounds like she's reassuring herself more than anything else.]
knifecollecting: (Do I wanna know?)

[personal profile] knifecollecting 2017-04-17 01:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Jo nods, taking a moment to just check over the girl.]

Yeah, I'm just a little tired. [Obviously, but Jo tries to play it off.]

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-17 01:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[The only reason Ellie misses the obvious check is because she's busy doing the exact same thing herself.

She's familiar with people bullshitting their levels of health. Hell, she's plenty guilty of it herself. Ellie knows how this goes. She nods, and lets it drop.]

I'm glad. You should rest up while we've got the chance. You know, before something else goes to shit.
knifecollecting: (You what-?!)

[personal profile] knifecollecting 2017-04-19 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, we all need to. [Jo knows how the cave works by now. There might be a little lull.

They'll all need to take advantage of it.]

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-19 12:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[She shrugs, clearly not expecting the limitations she acknowledges in others to mean shit for herself.]

I mean, I'll be fine. I'm used to not getting tons of sleep.
knifecollecting: (Yeah and I'm a pretty princess)

[personal profile] knifecollecting 2017-04-23 02:19 am (UTC)(link)
Just 'cause you're used to it doesn't mean it's good for you.

[Jo, you're being a hypocrite.]
survivorsguilt: (➽ eye of the tiger)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-24 10:32 am (UTC)(link)
[She drawls her words, raising a teasing eyebrow at Jo.]

Thanks, mom.

[If she makes light of it, hopefully Jo won't address it seriously.]

[He finds her at the city's edge. Checked Hope's place first, but no dice, and it ain't like she left a trail. Smart kid, but also makes it hell to track her down when he's running off no sleep, the fumes of his exhaustion eating away at every dragging step.

But eventually, there she is. He shudders to a halt, feeling less like raising his voice than he ever has in his life.]

[When she looks at him, Ellie can taste the blood that had welled up in her mouth. But he's okay. He's alright. She shakes with relief.

Despite not being big on touch- and not even knowing how Sans may react to it- she moves without thinking. His height makes it awkward, and she doesn't care. Ellie throws her arms around his shoulders, and holds on tight.

It's the first physical contact she's had since coming back, it feels like finally there is some tangible evidence that she's not just dreaming. She's back.]

['S a good thing she makes that first motion. He's kinda - he don't really feel like he's the right to make any sorta first move like that. Not with how he can - heh, not with how he's used something as innocent and gentle as a hug to his advantage in the past. But she don't even hesitate. She grabs him in a hug.

He only stands there a minute in quiet shock before he reaches up and holds on.]

Hey, kid.

[The words emerge quiet and cracked through, torn with a relief he don't know how to put a name to.]

Good...real good to see ya.

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-16 01:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[Her voice is similarly hoarse, thin with the suggestion of impending tears. Does this look strange? She actually doesn't give a shit.]

You too. Did you- did they hurt you?

[Kid. He called her kid. God, but she misses Joel. She misses him so much, and dying hurt so badly, and now the tears aren't just a threat. She buries her nose in Sans' gross hoodie.

He tried to save her. He wouldn't leave. It's enough. It's everything.]
skelebro: (i Cant)

[personal profile] skelebro 2017-04-16 06:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah. 'M fine.

[If they had, he'd be...well, y'know. Wouldn't matter none if they'd "hurt" him or not. He never should'a been the one to get out alive, not outta the two of 'em.

If he'd actually tried for half a second, if he'd done something more than is usually typical for him, she wouldn't be bearing the brunt of those consequences now. He could'a gotten them both outta there. He should have been able to.

First thing she does is ask after him. First thing she does.]

I'm sorry, kid.
survivorsguilt: (➽ stardust)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-17 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
S'okay. Not your fault.

[She doesn't seem to grasp the full weight behind the words; the guilt they imply.

This is past what she would consider a regular amount of time to hug someone for, but she's not ready to let go.]
skelebro: (i know kid i know)

[personal profile] skelebro 2017-04-17 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
I should'a -

[Nah. That's not...that ain't what he should be thinking, just now. Saying he should've or could've, that ain't the big question. The big question is whether or not she's okay, and -

Of course she ain't.

Who would be, after that?]

Hope patched you up, yeah? You just, uh...heh, you just get back?
survivorsguilt: (➽ carry on my wayward son)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-19 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
[It's good that he dropped it, because Sans doesn't want to get her started on 'should have', 'could have'. If she'd been smarter, faster, remembered what she'd been taught... no one would have had to die. He wouldn't have to look at her like that.

She nods in confirmation.]

Woke up at his alter. Came straight here. I-

[She'd begun to regain her composure, and it falters. Her hands shake.]

I can't find my knife.

[It's been way too long since Jade has seen Ellie and she's been frantic with worry, unable to reach her friend. When the city is finally reunited, Jade begins her search for those she lost during the split, Ellie among them if Ellie is even still there. She spots Ellie seemingly wandering aimlessly near the edge of the city, and Jade lets out a breath she hadn't realized she was holding. She rushes toward her friend, calling out her name and pulling her into a tight hug.]

Shit, it's good to see you...
survivorsguilt: (➽ stardust)

oh man. oh geez.

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-17 01:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ellie barely has time to turn and register who it is, and then she's in Jade's arms. It stuns her, at first. She stands loose and confused in the hug, mouth agape.

And then she's hugging back, fierce and crumbling all at once. She struggles to remember another hug like this. There has maybe been one. Her voice is a mess.]

You too. You hurt?
fourthsaken: by <user name="batman"> (a burning building)

[personal profile] fourthsaken 2017-04-18 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
[Jade holds her close, being the support and friend that she can tell Ellie needs right then. She blinks back tears as she hooks her chin over Ellie's shoulder, afraid to let go of her friend now that she's found her again.]

No. No, I'm ok--[She's really not okay, can't even lie about it.] I'm not hurt. But this whole thing was so fucked up...
survivorsguilt: (➽ stranger things)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-19 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
[It's hard to feel ashamed of clinging to her like a lifeline when Jade is doing such a good job of holding her up and hugging back. Ellie feels a flood of relief when she hears that Jade isn't injured, but- she knows that avoidance tactic. She's used it. It stings her heart to hear.]

I know.

[Her voice breaks.]

I felt sort of okay here, you know? It felt more- and now it's just. It's the same shit, again. I'm sick of worrying about who might be dead or alive.
fourthsaken: by <user name="batman"> (I don't want a world without pain)

[personal profile] fourthsaken 2017-04-21 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Jade's crying now, tears streaming down her face, as she continues hugging Ellie. It's hard to tell who's supporting who at this point. Jade needs this hug just as much as Ellie does.]

Yeah. I know. I thought... I thought I might get to have friends and shit and things would be almost normal.
survivorsguilt: (➽ no good deed goes unpunished)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-21 02:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[She doesn't understand how Jade has crawled under her skin so quickly. Hearing her cry is enough to make Ellie's eyes heavy with unshod tears. She bites down on the inside of her cheek, willing them back. Away. Can't let her insides leak out any further, or it just won't stop. She bites down harder, and tastes blood.]

Apparently that's a little too fucking much to ask for.

[She croaks out a laugh that doesn't even border on amused, and rests her cheek on Jade's shoulder.]

[personal profile] fourthsaken 2017-04-25 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Jade nods once before falling into silence. It's nice to just stand there, hugging Ellie close. After all of her worrying, she's just glad to have her friend back, is almost afraid to let her go again.

But they can't stay out on the edges of the city forever. Jade knows that with their luck, more monsters aren't far behind. Reluctantly she unwraps herself from the hug, though she keeps one hand lightly holding Ellie's wrist.]

We should... What were you doing out here? You wanna head back? We can stop at my place. I know Connor and Matt wouldn't mind if you stayed there.
survivorsguilt: (➽ orphan black)

[personal profile] survivorsguilt 2017-04-27 02:59 am (UTC)(link)
[She's absolutely right. It isn't safe. Ellie looks at her in a daze, and seems to need a second to process her words.]

I was looking for my gun... I...

[The weight of it is heavy against her hip, and she shakes her head. She already found it? Why is she still out here? Jesus christ, she's so tired she doesn't even know what she's doing anymore.]

Okay. Yeah. Let's go.

[The hand on her wrist is an entirely foreign feeling, but Ellie doesn't tug away from it. Right now, it's grounding and reassuring. Her fingers worm up to grasp what she can reach of Jade's hand, as well. She'll only feel embarrassed about it later, when she's less out of it.]
