[Video]

[As you can see when the video starts, Den is wearing some kind of a wizard costume (complete with stars decor and a pointy hat) as he straightens the camera before he starts to speak.]

Okay... I have no idea what is going on in here, but I can't believe that someone gave me these cool costume! And just in time for Halloween as well!

[He then swings his wand around as sparkle (seemingly) comes out from the star tip.]

Cool, huh? And that reminds me, I was hoping if someone wants to join me on some trick-or-treating fun right here in Fayren. I hope the folks here have special candy they made like in Animus!

[Action] Costumes Galore! [Open/October 13-20]

[Whether if he's a werewolf in Fayren or a human in Genessia, you can tell he is enjoying the changeable costumes phenomenon in Fayren. So far, he often wears a wizard costume on Friday the 13th and Wednesday and a knight costume around during the rest of the week. But be careful, he tends to swing his plastic sword or wand around. A lot.]

[Action] Trash Day [Open/October 17]

[Fayren's "curse" this Halloween is like a lottery. Sometimes you get an awesome costume you have dreamed of, sometimes you will get only a decent and recurring costume for Halloween. For Den's costume today, he is the unlucky werewolf to get a trash can costume. Right now, he is struggling to walk around Fayren as a werewolf and in Genessia as a human. Just expect him rolling around in embarrassment (and if you like, laugh at his costume).]

[The streets of Genessia city are crowded with monsters, now visible in the feed because Scott had accidentally dropped his communicator during a scuffle with a ghoul.

Let it not be said that Scott Summers is a man who doesn't know how to adapt. He's taking full advantage of his new incubus form, using wings as sharp blades to stab and cut through his enemies or to lift himself in the air and get some extra momentum before a punch. The resulting dust cloud after he dispatches a banshee obscures the presence of a Wendigo. The beast takes advantage of that to deliver a vicious backhand, sending Scott flying hard into a nearby wall.

Scott stands up, swiping his hand below his nose and wiping away blood. He doesn't have super strength, never did, and he knows that a Wendigo is too strong to defeat with simple punches and kicks. Frowning, his brown eyes glint red for a moment. A second later, Scott's charging straight at the Wendigo, who tries to cut him with his claws when he gets near. He deflects the attack by leaning backward, sliding quickly along the ground and between the monster's legs to end behind him.

The Wendigo growls and trashes as Scott grabs him by the fur on his back, extends his wings and takes flight, lifting the angry beast with him. They are now out of frame but the growls of the Wendigo can still be heard, sounding further and further away with each passing second. Scott's voice is distant too but he can be heard casually asking the monster if he knows how do eagles eat turtles.

Nothing happens for about five seconds.

With a yowl, the body of the Wendigo comes crashing into the ground, exploding into a pile of dust.

A nearby mummy looks up in confusion, only to end faceplanting on the ground too when Scott drops from the sky like an angry god. He's standing on top of the broken mummy with his bat wings extended when he notices the dropped communicator.]

Oh...

[For those who hadn't seen Rose yet: she looks like a traditional gargoyle: stone, grey skin, bat-like wings, red glowing eyes, but for blonde hair, and her ability to speak in her mostly usual voice.]

They say you're not to keep wolves as pets.

I mean, first off, yeah, it ain't right to coop the wolf up inside, for sure, who wouldn't get stir crazy like that, yeah? But even beyond that, they'll never be domestic. You never know when one might turn around and bite ya, no matter how much you try to feed it.

I was always more a cat person myself. Had one as a kid. Even got a flap in the door on the Powell Estates so she could come and go as she pleased. I know what it's like to need to wander.

I didn't get a new one when she died. Not 'cause it hurt too much, I don't think that should ever make you stop from making new friends, [A VERY STERN LOOK AT THE CAMERA. Brought to you with all the subtlty of engraving it on a rock and throwing it at the Doctor's face.] but 'cause I was fourteen, and ran away at sixteen, and then when I came back I had to work off debts, but basically, I didn't intend ta stick around there very long, or even as long as I did.

[Pouts a cheek to the side, which looks hilarious coming from a gargoyle.] Fer awhile, I thought... outliving your friends, because of a really long life, must be like that. You never forget or stop loving your pets, and how close or important they are to you is just on you and them and whatever yer relationship together. Some people wouldn't let themselves get that close to pets, knowing they're gonna die sooner 'n not, but [Another stern look at the camera. SO SUBTLE ROSE.] I know my friends enough to expect better than that.

[Glances off sideways.] Somewhere along the way I started thinking of myself like a pet dog. I forgot that wolves can make humans or even domestic animals their pack mates, but you still mustn't think of 'em as tamed. It does 'em a disservice, but they can also bite even friendly hands. Never docile, are wolves, yeah?

[This was something that Akihiko didn't expect to be doing this soon. Sure he'd talked over studying Criminal Justice and the like with Aigis and Mitsuru, with the ultimate goal of becoming a detective, but he never thought he'd be able to get a job as a beat cop in the meantime. Then again, he wasn't all too clear on how one becomes a detective other than studying for it. So, here he was, in uniform, standing awkwardly in front of the police station.]

[He took a deep breath before stepping inside.]


M-my name is Akihiko Sanada. I'm going to be working here from now on. I hope we can all get along.

[He offered a small bow before straightening up and glancing around to see if anyone was even in the office...]

Sailor Venus in ACTION! - Genessia City, 10/17, Evening )

[OOC: Want to get rescued by a fifteen-year-old girl? Fight side by side? You know what to do.]

-----------------------

[Video - 10/18, Morning]

[That sure is one very tired blonde teenager flopped out on the bed in a Commons apartment, facedown in her pillow, holding the communicator out in front of her. She tries to lift her head, decides it's not worth the effort, and the half an inch she gained is eradicated as her face meets the pillow once more. All that can be seen is her head of long blonde hair, tied back with a rumpled red bow that she should probably adjust, but hasn't.]

HeeEeeEEy... I'm supposed to introduce myself, so...

[Yawwwwwwwwwn.]

Here you go. I'm exhausted. Those monsters don't show up every night, do they?

...oh well...

[She'd be more weirded out if she weren't so completely exhausted. Her other hand flips up to flash a half-hearted "v" with her fingers.]

Minako Aino's the name I'll meet you all...later...zzzzzzzzzzz...

[Her uplifted hand drops, and the communicator falls from her limp fingers to clatter noisily on the floor. At least it ended on the 'stop recording' button.]

[Needless to say, she'll have actual replies later that afternoon. For now, she sleep.]

[Action: a. Nova City - Midnight on the 13th]

[Because she's a resident of Nova City, when the clock strikes twelve, the cat was no longer in the apartment. But there was some cat-like creature roaming about in the city, purple with a hint of light violet fur on the ears and chest. It had a collar around it's neck. If anyone came across this creature, she may look a little vicious, and may try to approach. All she wanted to do was play.

If not, when daybreak came, someone might stumble upon a naked woman with a collar on, curled up sleeping peacefully either on a tree, on someone's porch or chair if it's outside, anywhere where it seemed conformable in a cat-like manner.]


[Action: b. Anywhere else.]

[At this point, Blair was aware of her transformation and doesn't seem too bothered about it. Either she'd be in a werecat form, or waking up in some unusual places, and it wasn't just in Nova City.]

[he appears looking a little gaunter than usual. He's standing somewhere dark and obviouslyoutside.]

Right. So when they say that you'll be cursed when you enter Nova City, all evidence points to that being the case. So if you'd rather not-- I'd stay out of it if you can. In light of that and everything else happening round the... everywhere, classes are on hold until everything gets sorted.

[there is a fairly loud grumbling and he winces]

Anyone know of a blood bank nearby and do they accept red bills? [then immediately] No, that was a joke.

[he seems to see a flicker of movement and he turns his head, his eyes widening at something just behind the camera. Whatever it is makes what little color left in his face leave it. He offers the camera a tight smile]

Otherwise, stay safe, watch your back, don't do anything stupid. We're not the last anymore. [though the last part seems to be addressed to someones very specific]


[ooc: feel free to run into the Doctor pretty much anywhere around Attleton or Nova City.]

Who: Koishi and YOU
What: Koishi's costume
Where: Fayren & Genessia City
When: Start of the event
Warnings: Koishi being cute annoying

[Video]

When the feed clicked in it shows a very excited looking Koishi. Her hair had been pulled partially back and someone had given her hat a much longer ribbon and pinned roses and feathers in it. Her outfit was new too sporting long sleeves with oversized cuffs and a capelet that split into two and trailed down to her knees. This was combined with knee high boots that, by all accounts, her biology shouldn't be allowing her to wear without shenanigans, white gloves, a green skirt with a giant bow and some form of... wand? Even her third eye had a little ribbon tied onto the artery next to it.

Like some sort of... magical girl outfit?

"Hey! Everyone! Look! Look at this! I got a new outfit! I woke up with it and now I have it! Isn't it adorable?" She waved her arms, the wand scattering some glitter and lighting up. "I'm going to go fly around, okay? There will be so many sparkles!"

Oh no... The glitter...

[Action]

Practically all day, every day Koishi could be found floating around Fayren and Genessia alike, waving her wand, poking at people and making a huge mess ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE. It wasn't clear if her costume just came with an unlimited supply of glitter or she was actively re-filling the wand but anyone not paying attention or not being careful might find themselves more sparkly than when they started out that day. Oh no.

[A werewolf with a red tie, clever square black glasses and a certain cuckoo hair lick on the mane greets everyone]

Hallo, I'm The Doctor. Noticed that some of the residents of this world have found themselves transformed into other creatures.

So - if you find that you're a gargoyle or vampire - please find me near the Police Box in Nova City. I have worked out an antidote so, those of you turning into stone in the morning will no longer do that and for you vampires, I can supply blood packets.

All free of charge of course.

Mikaela.

Professor Sycamore.

Rose.

[Action for Nova City]

[There's a werewolf standing in a 'pop up' shop near a Police Box and on the table are thick plastic packets of synthetic blood (no blood smell to them), gotta sink your fangs into them, right? And vials that are corked closed and in vial holders for the gargoyles. He sits there, swishing his tail back and forth and looks tired.]

(OOC: Also the gargoyle potion isn't able to work but he gets points for trying)
 
 
A. [Action, guild master appartment, closed to Zeref] )


B. [Video - OTA / Action possible for the residents of Fairy Haven]

[Later that day, once Mavis has actually figured out what the costume was about.]

So... it seems most people in Fayren found a costume in their room. This is mine.

[She holds the camera at arms length, allowing the camera to show her wearing this cute dress completed with black pantyhose and, yes you saw that right, shoes! With heels! Her little white wings have also been replaced by little red horns, and she has small red bat-like wings in her back and a matching red devil tail.

She smiles.
] Isn't it cute? Zeira would be so jealous! I'm not sure who I'm supposed to be, though...

A demon maybe? ...Though I've never met a demon with such a cute outfit.

If you have any ideas, please let me know!

[Mavis bows slightly to the camera. The feed ends.]

[ There's a Japanese black bear on screen. He's surrounded by mats. Anyone familiar with the location could tell that he's at Sand Gym. The bear is holding a sketchbook open to a page with large, bold letters.]

JUDO?

[ It might actually be easier to judo flip him in bear form, since his sense of balance is different. As a Japanese black bear, he's not that much larger than he is in human form. Flipping a bear is still something to brag about, though.]

[Typically Aerik's the kind of guy that goes with the flow. Throw something crazy at him and he'll roll with it. But, oddly enough, that has never exactly meant the same thing as it did now. The worst of it had always been Wire business or self made mischief. Except that time he walked onto a mass murder scene by accident while working a case. That was just random happen stance.

This? This is a whole new level of absurd never seen by the likes of anyone he knew, and that included some heavily drug dependent individuals.

After a little wandering around, somehow he's logiced himself into believing everything. ]


No use wallowing around here, then.

[ So, Aerik finds himself turning on his device, video enabled and his patented charming smile plastered to his lips. ]

Any good pubs around here that a bloke can get faced in? Really thinkin I need it right about now.

Who: Johnny Cade, open to all
What: Johnny’s intro
When: Now
Where: Genessia City

[Johnny felt like he was in a dream. Or maybe he was dead. Maybe his final breath was taken when the church roof collapsed. Was Ponyboy dead, too? Dally? All those stupid kids? Running into the burning building was the stupidest thing they ever did, and all for a bunch of snot-nosed brats. Maybe this was heaven. And heaven meant no parents, or, maybe he’d have better parents here – a family that actually cared about him. That’s all he wanted, not that he ever admitted it to the gang, the gang was bound stronger than blood and they might’ve been hurt at that.]

[The communication device felt strange in his hands as he poked and slid his fingers on the screen. He wasn’t aware the video was filming as he put the thing-out-of-the-future into his pocket and got himself out of the pod. He dropped the key into his other pocket with his switchblade, and put the necklace on, hiding it under his black shirt. It wasn’t tuff and he was embarrassed to be seen with it. The red bills he stuffed into the inside-pocket of his denim jacket. The water outside the pod sloshed over his shoes and into the holes in his soles and he found himself walking out of the bay with his socks and bottom of his jeans wet.]

[Being kidnapped was worse than being dead. He had so many questions. And he felt terribly alone.]

[Johnny found a bench outside to sit on. The sun was warm on his face as he pulled out the phone, not realizing it had been recording the whole time. He cleared his throat and looked into the camera.]


“Uh…,” he said, not finding the words. His eyes shifted away shyly. “Hello?”

[Pressing the button to end the video, he put his head in his hands and tried to think of what he was going to do next. Besides panic. Nothing was familiar. And he’d never been alone before, he always had the gang. Aside from the one time he had been alone and got jumped. He didn’t want to dwell on that.]

When: Now
Where: Attleton
Warnings: May extend into dark topics
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<small>[Attleton]</small>

[Smoke appears on what appears to be a man that looks amazingly similar to himself]

More concerning, it was a !Skynet controlled him.

[The Marcus clone's eyes turned red as Marcus is forced to fight his own self from killing his friends in the background and everyone he's ever liked or loved. You can see John in the background working, a female pilot named Blair stepping back and two kids staring.

"You lose Marcus, you cannot save everyone here."

[Fayren - Action]

[Ever since a few days ago, Erza found herself in a new costume each day that she woke up. Some were already part of her normal list of outfits, so it gave her an opportunity to wear them around town. Meanwhile, others were specific to this holiday, but she was sure to get some good pictures of them so she could have her own versions made later.

The downside was that the costumes seemed to stick with her - even exquipping wouldn't change them, though she can still summon weapons. However, Erza isn't too concerned; she can take some time off bounty hunting and try relaxing for a change.

Erza can be found all around Fayren, looking relatively upbeat and unconcerned about whatever state of dress this place has left her in today. She usually just sticks to Fayren, since that's what she's familiar with, but a conversation that she hears about Everglade catches her interest...]


[Everglade - Video/Action]

[Erza's eyes are practically sparkling - despite what she had heard, she didn't believe it to be true until she saw it with her own eyes.]

This... This is incredible...

[In her haste, the idea of making this video private doesn't even cross her mind.] First! Mira! Look at this! [She holds up the camera, panning around to capture something that looks like Willy Wonka's wildest dreams. All of Everglade, from buildings to benches to even the streets themselves, is made entirely of candy, cookies, cake, and countless colossal confectioneries.] And it even comes back after you've eaten it!

[With that, she'll dash off to sample the sugary sweets that make up Everglade's surroundings... and possibly get charged for more property damage than she does back home in the process. This gets her wondering - what do the other districts have to offer?]

[Attleton - Video - Private to Zeref]

[...Unfortunately, she found out the hard way that this isn't just awesome costumes and delicious treats. The screen is pressed incredibly close to Erza's face, and from the scenery behind her, she isn't exactly out in the open.] You wanted to know when someone from Tartaros showed up? There's one in Attleton.

[She quickly peeks the communication device's camera over the edge of the roof that she's on, showing Kyouka hunting for her on the ground below along with Azuma. Even with her strength, she doesn't want to rush in to fight them when she (as far as she knows) can't change her armour, especially since the mummy costume that she's in doesn't offer much in the way of defense.]

[Attleton - Video/Action]

[Once Zeref's informed, she'll address the public at large, still on the roof. She's trying to stay composed, but from the look in her eyes, she's clearly shaken. She went through something similar back home, and it's not an experience that she wants to repeat, especially when she isn't aware that she can, in fact, change her armour outside of Fayren.]

Some incredibly dangerous mages, and a powerful demon, have entered Attleton. [She briefly sticks the camera out, catching a shot of Ikaruga, Azuma, and Kyouka on the ground below, before pulling it back to her face.] I've fought them before, so I know that most of them have no respect for the lives of others. They've been focused on me so far, but who knows when they--

And here I thought you were too old to be playing with toys... [A chill runs through Erza as she recognizes the voice behind her. She turns, the camera catching a glimpse of a face that's quite similar to Erza's own before it shuts off.]

((OoC: Erza's all over the place for this event, so if you want to make separate threads to interact with her in a variety of places, that's fine with me! I might be slow for the next few days due to work, but I'll be sure to respond when I get the chance.))

Warning: N/A

<small>[ [All Marcus could remember was a shot to the head and winced. ]</small>

"Ugh.. fuck where am I?"

<small>[Guardians standing over the former criminal all wearing gems looked down at the Man.>/small>

"You must give us something important to you to revive.
 Please choose."

[I... give up the memory of how angry my brother made me.]


Very well, Marcus Wright. We will return you to the living.

[Marcus is now revived]


"Ugh, what happened?"


 
 
16 October 2017 @ 08:54 pm
[The feed comes on, she is in Attleton and there is a herd of walkers approaching and she was hiding behind the corner of a building.]

That. That is what walkers look like.

[She said coolly, not at all impressed because this was supposed to be behind her wasn't it?]

Cut for horror description )
