HAAAIL THE CONQUERING HEROES - JULY FESTIVAL MINGLE

Who: EVERYONE, including 4th-wallers!
What: The festival and 4th-wall events!
When: Day 290 - 293 (July 4 - 11)
Where: All across the city!
Rating: PG-13. Anything that might go higher than that should be taken to a private log, please!

[ On Day 290 (July 4), all of the natives will close down their shops and stores and instead set up booths and stalls all over the city streets. Bright lights and decorations will be put up across every district in the respective colours of their patron gods along with an underlying theme of Freyr’s dark purple and Freya’s rouge. The city will spring to life in celebration of both the twins’ return and the Travellers’ triumph in reviving them. The festival will last three days, with music, games, dancing and an impressive fireworks display every night, visible all throughout the city.

In the midst of the first night of celebrations (July 5), a small earthquake rumbles across the land. It is nothing terribly powerful or disruptive, only strong enough to shift glassware a bit or rustle the leaves. The natives will seem surprised but unalarmed and continue the festivities as normal.

During the night’s fireworks, people will begin to pop! into the world in arbitrary places. Guards and maids will immediately rush around to give these new arrivals temporary bracelets with grey stones to protect them from the Grey Sickness; be sure to take this gift, as there is no telling what will happen to you if you get lost to the Grey when your soul isn’t tied to this world.

Still, the festivities continue even in the presence of their unexpected guests. The natives will treat them with a vague sense of curiosity and confusion, but are otherwise as amenable and deferential as they would be with the Travelers. Hang out, have fun, and please, mind the carpet. ]

[ OOC NOTES: This is one of the mingle logs for the festival / visitor’s event! Characters in game and 4th-wallers can make their own top-level posts and also comment around to their hearts' content! All information on how exactly the fourth wall event works with the relevant rules can be found over here, and we are always available if there are any further questions or clarifications needed. Other places you can tag into and around include the general visitors/event log mingle, the network mingle with NPC involvement, and the visitor directory.

Please put the time/location in your comment title along with [OPEN/CLOSED] and have fun with Asgard’s first fourth wall event! ]

[The changes creep up on her at first, a tickling at the back of her neck the first indication that this isn't Vegas anymore. That one strange world has been traded for another. The lights and bright, hollow noise might've faded but there's still the feel of things pressing in. When there's so much new, so much that doesn't fit -- Fred's always struggled with where to look next. With what's meant to come next.

She starts with walking, only vaguely aware of the costume she is still wearing. The tug of her own curiosity is too strong]

[ --!!

The costume is strange, but recognizable as Lorne's species so that it would have caught his attention without the familiar face behind it. Connor rushes over, smiling.]

Fred!

[As a familiar voice washes over her friend rounds, instinctively turning towards its source. Even for all that she initially recognized it, she's still not prepared for the face that Fred knows goes along with it. Especially not wearing a smile.

There's too much that's happened lately, too many things that feel turned upside down. had something happened with Angel she didn't know about, had they somehow resolved...]


Connor? You're...[there's too many words that could go there, but none of them come to her immediate rescue. She is clearly floundering] Connor?

[It isn't until he's right in front of her that he remembers they weren't really on good terms the majority of the time, and that odds are she isn't from a point where they're friends. His luck with visitors has been pretty horrible so far. But he keeps smiling at her because it's Fred.]

Hey. Welcome to Asgard... what are you wearing?
fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-08 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
What am I...

[Oh god. In the immediate shock of stumbling across Connor Fred's managed to completely forget what she's wearing. Or to be a bit more particular, what she's not wearing. And while maybe she never came close to filling the role that Cordy did when it came to looking after Connor, Fred still has strong feelings about the entire summer she spent looking after him. Along with Charles, it'd been just the three of them. A strange, cobbled together family unit.

Maybe the closest she'd ever come to one, considering her decision not to follow her folks back to Texas. Fred never once regretted her decision to stay, what they were doing mattered. But that didn't make her any less aware of what she'd given up. She cared for him over those months with a quiet fierceness Fred hadn't fully recognized until after.

Maybe that's why she had felt so betrayed.

Her cheeks color with fresh awareness of how little she is wearing]


I was helping Lorne.

[It doesn't feel like the explanation helps]
daddyissues: (pic#5236186)

[personal profile] daddyissues 2013-07-08 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
...okay.

[He has no idea why she'd have to dress like that to help Lorne, but he'll roll with it. She's speaking to him, that's good. Connor makes sure he's looking just at her face.]

Do you want to change? I can get you real clothes.
fredless: (Action : Looking Up)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-08 03:05 am (UTC)(link)
[She looks over at Connor again, studying him for openly this time. Taking note how how assured he seems]

That'd be good, actually.

[He seems to know his way around and that makes Fred wonder. She'll never forget how hard it was seeing him go through that portal. Knowing how it felt, how it sounded. Knowing they're be no one to comfort him on the other side.

And now, somehow, he's here]


Have you been here long, this --- Asgard?

daddyissues: (bet you thought i was soft and sweet)

[personal profile] daddyissues 2013-07-08 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
Six months, maybe? It's --

[It's a long story. But Asgard is so much less terrible than the worlds they'd been sucked into, even without his abilities.]

-- it's okay, right now. I'll explain when you're less Lorne-y.

[Connor doesn't sound entirely like the boy she knows from home. Something is lighter in him, in his voice and his eyes, but the smile is the same.]
fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-08 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
[Lorne-y.

Something about the expression eases the ball of tension that sits squarely in the center of Fred's chest. And she can't help but find the tilt of Connor's smile contagious.

Finally her own expression softens into an almost-smile of her own]


That sounds good, actually. On both counts.
daddyissues: (pic#5236318)

[personal profile] daddyissues 2013-07-08 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
[Connor is visibly relieved when she agrees to go with him -- for a few minutes it won't matter when she's from or what he'd done. He motions for her to follow him, and he's tall enough that she probably won't lose sight of him in the crowd. Huh. He's taller than the last time she saw him.]

We're in my district already, it's close.
fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-08 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Fred's pretty good at navigating a crowd, and even better at getting herself lost in one. If she hadn't found Connor she'd probably be making herself as small as possible at this point, just for the sake of slipping undetected from place to place for the sake of exploring.

But somehow she'd stumbled into the most unexpected of guides. And it's...

Despite everything, he makes it better.

Fred follows Connor, eyes still darting over every person and surface they can find]


Your district?

[Did he go and get taller somehow?]
daddyissues: (an angel swept you off your feet)

[personal profile] daddyissues 2013-07-08 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Connor has been giving visitors the run down of Asgard since they started showing up, so the explanation he launches into is practiced and easy to understand.]

Asgard is divided into nine districts, one for each god. When Travelers -- that's us -- are brought into the city, it's like we're assigned to a god who looks after us. You don't have to stay in your god's district, but you start out with housing there.

[He's not getting into the power loss and loan, at least not right now.]

[Shahrazad is cleaned up and fit for human company by the time she crosses paths with Fred. The other woman's appearance has probably turned heads already and the countess isn't an exception. It's for an entirely different reason than people would expect though.]

Is this the customary dress for the celebration?
fredless: (Lornette)

Yay for still green!

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-11 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Fred is once again reminded of her increasingly embarrassing attire, and her cheeks tinge pink under the green. She can feel the heat that sits there and wonders if it is visible through the paint]

No...I mean, at least I don't think so? I guess anything's possible. But at this point I'm more likely just additional entertainment.

[She really needs to see about finding something else to wear]

[Erica has seen a lot of things in Asgard. Weird animals at the zoo. Girls with dog ears. Stiles using fire at the library.

She hasn't seen a green girl, though. Let alone a green girl, with horns, in what she thinks looks like not nearly warm enough clothing.

Erica realizes she's staring and stops.]


Sorry. I was staring, which is rude.

fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-18 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Once again Fred flushes as she considers her current state of dress]>/small>

At this point I'm thinking the staring part is totally understandable.

[personal profile] better 2013-07-22 06:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Erica cracks half a smile at that.]

I'll do better not to stare. I'm personally not a fan of it. I do like the green, though.
fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-07-31 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Fred can't help but stare]

...you like it?

[It reads 'on her'. Green's a perfectly wonderful color. It is beautiful on Lorne. But on her?]
better: misused : from gone missing (w | middle of sentence)

[personal profile] better 2013-08-01 06:23 am (UTC)(link)
[Was that the wrong thing to say?]

Are you not okay with it? [She's not sure... if she isn't supposed to mention it.]
fredless: (Lornette)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-08-04 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
[It sounds worse, being not ok with it. Fred's expression becomes fainting embarrassed as she pulls two fingers across the opposite forearm. Much paler skin in revealed]

It's just not how I usually look.
better: misused : from gone missing (w | middle of sentence)

[personal profile] better 2013-08-05 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Erica exhales and presses her fingers to her face, hiding a bit.]

OH! Oh, I'm so sorry. I thought -- I thought you were green.
fredless: (Action : Give you a smile)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-08-05 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
[There's finally a tilted, genuine smile. Fred can't help but wonder if all the green makes her teeth as bright as Lorne's a;ways seemed]

I think it's a pretty understandable mistake.
better: misused : from gone missing (w | knowing)

[personal profile] better 2013-08-08 05:23 pm (UTC)(link)

fredless: (Default)

[personal profile] fredless 2013-08-11 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
I just got here, so I don't exactly have a lot of experience yet.

[Not that she's hoping for any either]

[personal profile] better 2013-08-11 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Eventually, it'll feel like you've been here a lot longer than you have. I've only been here for a month, but it feels like a lot more time has passed.
