What: Travellers returning from Vanaheim to find their friends picking up the pieces after the end of the Bad Moon Rising plot.
When: Day 334 ( Sept. 30 - Oct. 1 )
Where: all around the city!
Rating: PG-13. Anything higher than that should be taken to a separate log, please!

[ OOC NOTES: That's it. That's the log.

This is the mingle log for characters returning from Vanaheim to find their friends that witnessed the mayhem in Asgard. Remember that there will be apples trees all across the city again, this time bearing luminescent golden fruit. A short message will appear on each character's bracelet: Eat the Fruit of Clarity. The apples will clean up the last of Thiazi's black magic. Please put [OPEN/CLOSED] in the title of your comment. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. This concludes both month-long plots, thanks for playing with us! ]

Clementine l Open

[Clementine can't help but pause at the sight of the aftermath. This was not exactly how she had imagined her return from the trip, to say the least. She's a little shaken, it almost reminds her of home for a second before she is able to reconcile it all with this strange new place she finds herself in.

She wants to check in on her friends, first heading to the Sigyn house before making her way to find the Eighth Doctor in particular. Thus she can be found running between districts, possibly alone or with a companion as she checks on those who remained behind.]

[Eight is trying, really trying, to stay out of everyone's way. He keeps to the side of everything, doing what he can to help without getting too close to anyone, trying to avoid as many people as possible, in case Thiazi decides to get some revenge and take over his mind again.

However, this doesn't seem to be working very well, as he turns a corner and nearly barrels into a child.]

Oh, I'm sorry! I--

[He looks down and sees Clem and...his expression crumbles a bit. No, not her. She needs to be safe. She needs to be away from him, but what can he do now? Running away from her wouldn't do any good.]

Clementine, hello.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-01 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[There's a pause as Clementine looks to the person who nearly bumped into her, taking a second before she registers that it is Eight. She has no idea what happened, just wants to ensure he is all right after whatever happened. She doesn't quite understand why his expression might fall at seeing her again.]

Ah! You're okay?

[And yup, right about now he will be getting an attempt at a hug. She missed him in Vahaheim, and it's obvious that something went down in their absence.]

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-01 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
[Once she goes in for the hug, Eight melts and gives her the biggest hug ever, lifting her up off the ground.]

Oh, Clementine. No, I'm really not alright at all, but I'm alive at least.

[He finally gently sets her back down and gives her a weak little smile, his eyes misted over.]

I'm very glad you were in Vanaheim, away from it all and having a good time.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-01 10:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yay hugs. She loves hugs and could almost live off of them with how often she went in for one with Lee back home. And the Doctor does give good hugs, she discovers.]

You're not? Why?

[Do you need more hugs? Clementine can provide more hugs. She releases her arms from his neck when he lowers her, shoes back on the ground.]

But I could have helped? I know I'm still practicing my healing, but still....

[How does one tell a nine-year-old child what you did? How do you manage to tell her without her running screaming from you?

He kneels down to be closer to eye level on her.]


There is a woman named Thiazi, and she's not a god, but close to it, and she is the enemy of the gods of Asgard. She...put some sort of corruption into the network and it drove some of us mad.

[He lowers his eyes, not wanting to tell a little girl this, but knowing full well that there is absolutely no way to sugarcoat the things he did while under Thiazi's influence.]

We...we were controlled. I'm afraid I-- I did horrible things.

[He shakes his head vigorously. No way would he have wished her in this hell.]

No, Clementine. There wasn't much that anyone could do. You were better off in Vanaheim.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-02 06:12 am (UTC)(link)

[She knows the basics of war and all, so this isn't anything too new. She just didn't realize the war could involve things like that. She thinks she gets the gist of what he is trying to say. It's almost too much like Lee revealing the truth to her in the store back home. She shakes her head, eyes widened.]

Horrible things? wasn't you, right?

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-02 07:20 am (UTC)(link)
Controlled, yes. My mind was not my own. In fact, in the morning I hadn't known what I'd done the night before.

[He gulps.] I know now.

No...I suppose it wasn't me, but I still feel guilty. It still hurts to know what I did.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-02 07:43 am (UTC)(link)
That must have been scary....not knowing what you did like that. But you know now, right? So you can say sorry if you feel bad, and we can fix it. It'll be okay. I can help.

[Or, she wants to try. Clementine feels bad for not being there, and it's obvious the Doctor is upset about it. She's just not sure how to help. How to try cheer him or reassure him. So she merely reaches for another hug, trying to consider it.]

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-02 08:12 am (UTC)(link)
[That is one reason why Eight is very fond of children. When they care, they care completely and without reservation.

He shakes his head.]

I'm afraid that sometimes, saying you're sorry won't fix anything. I...I killed people. People are dead because Thiazi used my body to kill them.

There are just some things you just can't make better, Clementine.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-02 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I know. can be a start. I don't think I like Thiazi. Why would they do that?

[Clementine isn't yet aware that death is in fact not a permanent thing here, she merely considers it like back home, prior to the walkers. And hasn't yet considered the idea that she could turn if she dies even here.]

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-03 08:24 am (UTC)(link)
We are in the middle of a war, I'm afraid, and Thiazi is using whatever tricks she can think of to win. She seems to prefer making others do her dirty work.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-03 10:07 am (UTC)(link)
Do you think....she might try to make me do things?

[She doesn't want to shoot or hurt anyone okay. Especially not after the more recent events back home. Clementine can't help the worry and fear seeping into her voice or expression at the question.]
beforethewar: (pic#6002197)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-05 01:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, Clem...

He hugs her to him again for some reassurance, as meager as it is at the moment.]

I don't think she'll try this trick again, no, but this isn't the end of her attacks, I'm sure. Still, I'm fairly certain she won't try to take over people's minds again. Not now that people know what to look for and how to deal with it.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-05 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
[And she will return that hug. She needs the reassurance right now. Part of her appreciates the truth, even if white lies seem preferable given her age. So she's grateful that he's not sugar coating it for her.]

I guess. I hope she doesn't. That sounds....scary. And wrong.

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-05 06:30 am (UTC)(link)
[It's been centuries since the Doctor raised his granddaughter. Even longer since he raised his children. He's sort of rusty when it comes to how to speak to them about bad things, and thus he errs on the side of just telling them the truth as kindly as he can.]

It should, because it is. I promise you, though, that we'll do everything in our power to keep you safe, alright? If it's not me, then one of the other Doctors. Or the TARDIS, or one of the other in the little family we seem to be gathering.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-05 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
[She nods, accepting and grateful for the truth, even if it might be hard for him to tell her.]

Okay. Like Lee kept me safe back home, and the rest of our group.

[Although. Walkers and all. :l But she gets the idea, and is grateful again just the same. She realizes that while she can defend herself to a point, she is still only nine, still just a kid in spite of all she has been through thus far.]
beforethewar: (pic#6750935)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-05 06:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Absolutely. And maybe better, because I'm willing to bet there are more of us. More eyes to keep on you.

[He grins a little, teasing.]

They are good people, I promise.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-06 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
That's true. It seems there are lots of people here. Our group was much smaller.

[And got smaller as their journey went on due to. Circumstances. And walkers.]

I'm sure.
beforethewar: (pic#6750937)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-07 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
And hopefully soon, your friend will trust me enough not to hate the fact that you're living with us.

[He gives her a little lopsided grin. In no way does he have any room to be upset that someone doesn't trust him. For one, she doesn't know him. For another, he'd just spent the last few weeks controlled by Thiazi. Who knows when that control would be taken back.]

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-07 10:03 am (UTC)(link)
Wh--oh. You mean Ellie? I'm sure she won't mind once she meets you! You'll see.

[Clementine tries to reassure him with a confident nod. She doesn't see that there is anything to worry about. Eight has thus far always been nice and helpful to her after all.]
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-08 05:15 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, Ellie. Quite a forceful one, that girl. I'm sure I'll win her over.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-08 07:28 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sure you will. She's not that bad, really. I think she's just kind of...worried about me.
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-09 06:48 am (UTC)(link)
As she should be. I don't blame her.

[personal profile] littlesurvivor 2013-10-09 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
Why? I don't see why she should be worried. I mean, you've said it's okay and that I'll be safe.
