Title: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 09, 2017, 05:37:11 AM
tap·es·try
ˈtapəstrē/
noun
used in reference to an intricate or complex combination of things or sequence of events.
"a tapestry of cultures, races, and customs"


Things are starting to weave together.
Greek Demigods and Egyptian Magicians work together.
Roman and Greek camps unite to battle.
Norse Warriors and Greek Demigods are beginning to keep contact.
Things are definitely starting to meld.

And someone is going to take advantage of this.

Hello everyone and welcome to my attempt at a Riordanverse RP!!! After reading through my Magnus Chase books and having a very emotional remembrance of my love for Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Kane Chronicles, and the bonus materials for said series, I sort of had an idea - Heh, well, yeah. Um!!!
Riordanverse RP, a crossover of the various branches in the series' verse! This will take place after Heroes of Olympus but not after Magnus Chase, I think, and it'll feature awesome crossovers of gods and abilities! Woo hoo!!!!!
I'll post the card here just in case people want to get right into it, aaaand!

Name:
Age (Not 18 or over, please!):
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A):
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes):
Appearance:
Personality:
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!):
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that):
Other:

Phew! Okay, now, I'm gonna finish up plotting out the antagonists and such and I hope this doesn't die!!

Yep!!!!!!! Although before we get cards down I want to know: Which area are you planning on having characters from? Valhalla? A Nome? Camp Half Blood? Camp Jupiter? I wanna know so we can get a good balance going - It wouldn't be as much of a crossover in my opinion if there was one magician and 20 Greek campers.

Multiple characters and the fam being together. Nothing beats it.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 09, 2017, 09:57:43 AM
Yep! What is 'the fam'? Are your characters going to be family?

Post by: GreyCaboose on February 09, 2017, 12:04:32 PM
Alright, although a little bit more personality than 'kind, gentle, and oh so twisted' would be nice!

"Fam" just means friends that are close enough to practically be family. I wasn't specifically talking about the RP characters there c:
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 09, 2017, 12:27:14 PM
Oh, thank you for clarifying!! It's good you're so close with everyone, that's awesome!!!

So we've got 1 Roman camp member and 1 member of Valhalla so far!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 09, 2017, 02:38:08 PM
I'll have a Valhalla character up front as well due to my love for Norse mythology, but I will fill in on any areas we don't have enough of!

Name: Kelsey Young
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 17, or at least he was that when he died.
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): Idunn
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): Valhalla
Appearance: Kelsey is a little tall for his age and rather lean, with dark short-cropped hair and dark brown eyes, pale skin, and a long pointed nose. Strangely contrasting to his thin appearance, he wears WW1 Irish soldier garb.
Personality: A good-natured fellow at heart, one who took a first look at Kelsey would not expect him to be an ex-military member as well as a warrior of Valhalla. Kelsey worries a lot and flinches at everything, and he's often mocked about it, as he's very anxious and cautious and tends to act as a mother to the more reckless acquaintances he has. However, he's also fiercely protective of closer friends as he cannot bear seeing those he loves getting hurt. This protective instinct kicks in often and Kelsey can be quite a force in battle when all he has is adrenaline and the urge to protect. He tries to be as polite as possible and fears old age.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): A typical bolt-action rifle, standard for WW1 soldiers, with modified Bone Steel bullets that Kelsey has specially made (by other people, of course - He's not about that crafting life).
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): Kelsey grew up in Ireland with a loving father and stepmother, and was always a happy boy - Until his accidents started. Turns out Kelsey's father had somehow managed to anger Frey, the god of prosperity, peace, pleasure, etc? Kelsey was the unfortunate recipient of the consequences - The boy was seemingly cursed with constant worry, misfortune, panic, a knack for getting incredibly hurt, and an even worse knack for being sick and difficult to heal. By the time Kelsey was 17, he was volunteered to join the military by his parents and almost immediately somehow shoved into the battle that would cost him his life - And put him in his worst nightmare: A land of unceasing death and battle (although for the most part he's gotten used to it by now).
Other: He's learned to dab from the more modern Valhalla tenants. Zeus help us.

There we go - Now I'll wait for the others so I can see what area needs filled!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 10, 2017, 03:31:47 PM
I want to make two characters (because my life is not complete with just one), but since I'm only familiar with the Percy Jackson world, I'm going to be sticking to those. And I don't want to overwhelm the RP with demigods, so I'll wait and see if a second character is warranted.

Name: Francis Thompson
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 16
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): Venus
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): Camp Jupiter
Appearance: Francis is tall and lean - he's more of a swimmer than a body builder, and that's evident in his physique. He has curly hair that sits somewhere between brown and blond, and brown eyes.
Personality: Francis is friendly and extroverted, always willing to talk to people and smile at strangers. He's also somewhat of a nerd, particularly when it comes to Star Wars. He thinks his jokes are funny. That's up for debate.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): He uses a standard celestial brass sword.
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): Francis isn't sure exactly how his father met Venus, but he doesn't really care. His father raised him in New Rome, Francis joined the legion when he was twelve, and the rest is history.
Other: Francis is allergic to pine trees.

Name: Wes Carter
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 17
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): Hestia
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): Camp Half-Blood
Appearance: Wes' hair and eyes are the same color - very dark brown. His skin is a rich tan. Wes is of average height and weight for his age.
Personality: Although friendly and kind, Wes is shy and doesn't speak up very easily. Even around his friends, he has trouble expressing his thoughts and needs. Being the son of the goddess of hearths and homemaking, he's very sensitive to the needs of others, and so he always tries to put others first.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): A bow and arrows. His quiver is enchanted to replenish his arrow supply when he runs out.
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): Wes has known what he was his entire life. His father didn't particularly mind that he was a demigod, but at the time, his father wasn't properly equipped to be a parent. Wes ended up living with his grandparents until they died, and by that time, Wes was old enough to live at camp. He's been at Camp Half-Blood ever since.
Other: Wes has a half sister on his father's side that he has never met.

Okay, sweet! So it looks like we've got 2 Roman Demigods now, and 2 members of Valhalla!

OK. Fixed that, and put up my other character.

Thanks, although I said 'not 18 and over, please' - you can make him 17, but please obey the rules here! And are you planning on specifying when and how he died in the RP? Is he new or old to Valhalla?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Sorry. Will fix.
Yes I think that will come up in the story. He died during 1062 C.E.

Name: Julia Ambrose
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 16
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): Hecate
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): Camp Half-Blood
Appearance: She has rather long, slightly curly dark brown hair and olive-toned skin. Her eyes are hazel but tend to appear more green, and she's of an average build.
Personality: She usually has a relatively sad/rbf expression, there's very little in between or variation. She's pretty quiet and keeps to herself, mostly in a defensive manner.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): She has a celestial bronze dagger, though she prefers to try and use magic as often as she can.
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): She had always been drawn to magic, and early on in her life she tried to train herself in Wicca until she learned of her heritage and who her mother was.
Other: mleh mleh

Name: Sebastian Williams
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 16, almost 17
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): N/A
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): The 21st Nome (Brooklyn House)
Appearance: Seb is pretty tall and fit, though lean. He has dark hair that he keeps long, often in one or two braids. He has deep, mahogany colored eyes.
Personality: He's a very social guy, and is often cracking jokes and trying to lighten up people's moods in any way he can.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): He's got a wand. He's also studying the Path of Sobek, with a particular interest in combat magic (though he has never summoned a combat avatar). He is also interested in Hydrokinesis, and because he is studying Sobek, he is good with animals.
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): He was raised mostly by his grandparents on a reservation. His life was consumed by his own culture, though there were sprinklings of ancient Egypt all across it, which he never really understood until things started to get rather strange a few years ago. His grandparents explained their long heritage, and the lineage that somehow went back to the Pharaohs. Seb went out to find the 21st Nome, since it seemed the Path of the Gods was the right one for him.
Other: He's very good at lacrosse, and his dream was to become like the Thompson Brothers, but he gave that up when he began studying magic.

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 13, 2017, 09:11:06 AM
Awesome!! So that has us at:

2 Roman Half-bloods (Ardin and Francis)
1 Half-blood of Valhalla (Kelsey)
1 Non Half-Blood of Valhalla (Edwin)
(Together that's 2 Warriors of Valhalla)
1 Greek Half-Blood (Julia)
And 1 Magician! (Seb!)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 13, 2017, 12:05:49 PM
I'll probably make a magician OC as well, leaving the need for another Greek halfblood for things to be completely even - Although they don't have to be, that's just what I'd prefer - I just don't want one faction to take All The Spots ya feel
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 13, 2017, 12:22:03 PM
I can do that!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 13, 2017, 12:54:21 PM
Sweet! I'm so excited!! And then once we have 2 for each faction if anyone with only 1 character who wants to make another can pretty much just do what they want!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2017, 01:03:30 PM
I am pumped to start this. Except next weekend I'll be traveling out of state, will return for two days, and then will be out of state again and pretty busy sooooo I may be a little absent in the beginning of the rp
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 13, 2017, 01:07:00 PM
Alright! We'll try to fit things with your schedule, Kira! I'm planning on dividing the beginning parts of the RP into 4 sections to explain the motives behind the separate factions and try to lead up as quick as I can to the meetup, if that'd help at all.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2017, 01:18:38 PM
Yeah, if that happens while im gone or whatever I'll just jump in when everyone's already all together
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 13, 2017, 03:12:02 PM
Would it be overkill if I made a Greek demigod, too? If so, that's totally fine, I understand! I just like having two characters, but I don't want to throw the balance off :)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 13, 2017, 11:35:01 PM
heck yeah you can have a greek demigod, i won't stop ya!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 14, 2017, 10:22:09 AM
I started looking at Nomes for my Magician character other than the Brooklyn House and I saw that there's a Nome in Tokyo!

Name: Yuudai Umezu
Age (Not 18 or over, please!): 16
Godly Parent (If they're a magician without a godly parent, put N/A): N/A
Association (Jupiter, Half-Blood, Valhalla, Nomes): The 224th Nome, in Tokyo
Appearance: Yuudai has very long black hair generally kept in a messy bun, with thin, angular eyes that look very angry (though that could also be attributed to her sharp, angry-looking eyebrows as well). She's not tall but not short, and is rather muscle-y and fit. Her nose is flat and her lips are thin, and she has rather broad shoulders. She generally wears very loose clothing. Her left leg is prosthetic below the knee.
Personality: Yuudai tries her hardest to be a powerful magician, but can let her guard slip sometimes. She wants respect and tries to be the maternal/leaderly figure of her friend groups when she can. She gets offended sometimes a little too easily and can seem oversensitive, but she does have a witty sense of humor when she lest herself relax. Yuudai can easily stress herself out when she's overexerting herself, and loves to work out a little too much.
Weapon (Nothing too crazy, please!): Yuudai keeps a simple staff on her that she disguises as a cane to help her walk - She doesn't one, but it spares odd glances.
Backstory (Optional, just in case you want to get into stuff like how the mortal parent and godly parent met or how the character got to where they are or discovered their heritage and all that): Yuudai has been studying the path of Sekhmet since she first became a magician, although she craves a better area to learn and thusly chose to leave her home in the 224th Nome and find her way to the Brooklyn House. Her parents never explained anything about her mother's small sliver of relation to the ancient Egyptian Pharoahs - chances are they never knew. While she first learnt magic in the 224th Nome, she learned lots of stuff about herself and considers it to be more of a home than anywhere else.
Other: Yes, Yuudai is a Japanese male-given name - She wasn't going to change it when she came out to her friends, she felt it fit and she couldn't find any names she liked more. She speaks English fluently and knows some Egyptian, as can be expected with most magicians. She loves to play video games and has a fondness for unhealthy American food.

There's my magician character!

Okay so if I'm correct we still need Pan's characters and one of Blue's? Am I right about that?

Perfect character!!!! So now we've got two for every faction! Sweet!! I love it when things are even like that! Pan, what factions are you planning on putting your character(s) into?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 16, 2017, 09:40:36 AM
I had some vague ideas for a Greek demigod so I'll probably do that and for my other character probably a magician; does that sound good? I don't remember Kane Chronicles super well though e.e
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 16, 2017, 10:00:43 AM
Awesome - That works for 3 Greek campers, since the Greeks consider 3 to be the best number for a quest! And it's all good, I'll give ya tips and help if you need it!

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 20, 2017, 05:15:34 PM
I've written a card for the demigod (except a last name, which I am struggling so hard to decide on; why is character creation like thia) and am currently drawing a creative blank on the magician BUT if I remember right you said we'd set up why they're all in one place one group after the other so if we do the magicians later I can post the demigod's card and we can start tomorrow? And if I still don't have any capital-I Ideas by the time the magicians' turn comes around I can either create a character by sheer force of will or just not have a second character
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 21, 2017, 04:23:31 AM
Sure thing, pal!!!!! That'd work just fine for me!!! The order I'm planning on it being would be

- Greek Demigods
- Roman Demigods
- Valhalla Warriors
- Magicians

so would that work for everyone else?

Sweet! And okay!!
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 21, 2017, 04:53:06 AM
Okay I got it all typed up!

Name: Owen Wagner
Age: 15
Godly Parent: Nike
Association: Camp Half-Blood
Appearance: Owen has mess of curly sand-brown hair over freckled, suntanned face and lively olive-green eyes. On the taller side of average with a compactly athletic build. Along with the standard orange t-shirt and jeans, he wears a pair of red Converse high-tops.
Personality: Pretty full of himself, though by no means unfriendly. He is, by default, boisterously happy and eager to do just about anything. He makes everything he can into a competition (usually a good-spirited one) and is constantly looking for ways to prove himself. He doesn't know when to stop talking, and has a history of getting into trouble by running his mouth. He plays to win without really caring about rewards. He's afraid to show weakness, both out of fear that it'll be exploited and fear that it'll worsen people's opinions of him. This fear contributes to his seeming full of himself. He manages to both be hyper-aware of shortcomings and constantly overestimate his abilities.
Weapon: Owen brags that he can devastate enemies with any weapon imaginable, and in fact is halfway decent with most standard weapons, but typically uses a sword, which he can consistently be effective with.
Backstory: He played nearly every sport under the sun growing up, since he was good at it and his competitive disposition was encouraged, but he tended to garner disapproval for always trying to outshine his teammates and take on the opposition by himself. He hasn't really broken that bad habit. His teamwork could stand for some improvement.
Other: Has a pollen allergy that he vehemently denies.

The evening was crisp, with a chilly bite to the air as the wind blew. Conversations and laughter could be heard in the distance as campers ate dinner at their tables.

"- And then I guess he was trying to hit the target upside down, but -"

"- I told him 'if you think I'm going to ask Percy Jackson to -"

"- Says hes a son of Enyo, why isn't he staying in her cabin?"

"- Did you see Ramona? She looks -"

At a sparsely populated table, a blonde boy sat silently. Jude Simone, the newest camper at Half-Blood.

At another table, inhabited by members of the Hecate cabin, a few campers laughed and joked around.

"Ramona, are you okay?" One asked, frowning in concern.

"....I'm fine." Ramona stood and hastily left the Hecate table with the remains of her food, heading to the fireplace.

"...Fine." The boy shrugged.

Other tables chattered - A girl from Nike's cabin threw a crumpled napkin at a boy from Hestia's cabin, earning laughter and shouts from other campers as she shouts a victorious 'Kobe!' and lets out a whoop.

Jude Simone's eyes narrow as he stands up abruptly and leaves the dining area.

(Okay, I hope maybe this is better!)

Wes blushed furiously as he picked up the napkin from where it had fallen on the floor after hitting him. He had to give the kid credit for hitting him from that far away, but part of him wanted to punch the kid's teeth down his throat. Of course, Wes knew that he would never do that, but it wouldn't hurt too much to think about it, would it?

(There at separate tables(like in the books), just interacting with each other across the room.)

Julia watched Ramona leave, the corners of her lips tilting down in what could have been disgust or worry. With her, it was hard to tell. She glanced around the table before she quickly stood up and followed her out, dumping her leftovers in the fire rather haphazardly considering she was trying to follow someone that was moving rather quickly.

(Well, it was that way at first but I put it so they're are different tables for their cabins - However, if you want your character to be sitting somewhere else you can have him do that!!)

She glanced around the table before she quickly stood up and followed her out, dumping her leftovers in the fire rather haphazardly considering she was trying to follow someone that was moving rather quickly.

Ramona was hard to track, heading behind the Enyo cabin, where she seemed to be talking to someone.

"You can't be serious. There's no way -"

"Listen, Ramona, I know it seems crazy but I need you to come with me."

"I....I need to think this through."

"We don't have enough time. But everything I've shown you, you could be part of it if we just -"

"Well, I can't just up and leave right now!"

"You have to - What part of 'we don't have enough time' do you not understand??"

"Get away from me - I can't do this!"

"Ramona!"

"Get off me, Jude!"

Ramona rushed out of the area she was in, hiding her face and quickly walking to the Hecate cabin.

Wes blushed furiously as he picked up the napkin from where it had fallen on the floor after hitting him. He had to give the kid credit for hitting him from that far away, but part of him wanted to punch the kid's teeth down his throat. Of course, Wes knew that he would never do that, but it wouldn't hurt too much to think about it, would it?

Of course, once someone managed to accomplish something it wasn't long for other people to mimic. This time a pebble was thrown at Wes, then a coin, both with obnoxious cheers from the respective throwers.

Owen watched the barrage of objects fly across the room. Of course, he itched to join in the show of skill, but throwing stuff at another camper didn't sit right with him. Glancing around, he spotted a trash can a few feet behind his table's current target, found a crumpled sheet of paper in his pocket, and hurled it into the can, letting out a whoop when it hit his target. There. He'd won and not been obnoxious! He glanced at the camper who'd had stuff thrown at him to see how he reacted.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2017, 02:00:41 AM
The coin hadn't even hit him - the camper had missed by a good two inches - but that was the last straw for Wes. He looked over to see where the coin had come from, and upon seeing the smug grin of a Hermes kid, he didn't hesitate. Wes practically leaped over the table to get to the kid, then grabbed him by the collar of his shirt, threw him to the ground, and rained punches down on him. He wasn't the biggest guy at camp, but he was strong, and he knew how to fight.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 23, 2017, 02:39:01 AM
Ah. Looks like Owen had been a bit too late to change the target. Still, he couldn't help but root for the guy who'd had stuff thrown at him. He deserved some revenge.

Julia stuck close to the side of a building, her brow furrowing as she heard the conversation. Jude was that new kid, right? What did he need Ramona for? What was going on? She heard Ramona coming so she quickly hid, then debated on what to do next. She could follow Ramona, or she could try to figure out what was going on from this Jude kid...
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 23, 2017, 04:51:17 AM
A couple kids screamed. Some children of nemesis started chanting and cheering. Before long, a counselor rushed over to the scene and pulled Wes away from the Hermes kid, who had a bloody nose and a busted lip by that point and was attempting to cover his face.
"Wes, what the heck are you doing??" The counselor demanded as some other campers helped the Hermes kid up to lead him to the infirmary.

As Ramona slammed the door to the Hecate cabin, Jude could be heard cursing to himself and kicking something hard.

"Babe? Yeah, she's not coming willingly.

...

Alright.

Love you too, babe."

Jude exited the area he was in, narrowly bumping into Julia.

"...What are you doing here."

Jude's eyes narrowed as well, meeting Julia's in a firm glare.
"I don't think you should really be eavesdropping like that, friend." A slow Missouri drawl melted into his words. "What we were talking about doesn't really concern you, you know."

Wes offered little more than a nonchalant shrug. He could see the blood on his knuckles, but he chose to ignore it for now. "He threw a coin at me."

"He threw a coin..." The counselor looked at the blood. "And so you attacked him. That.....sounds like a bit of an overreaction, Carter. I would expect this sort of behavior from an Ares kid, but from you?" She huffed. "You better give me a better reason as to why you attacked Jack?"

(Heh I wanted to give the Hermes' kid some name so I wouldn't have to keep using 'him', since that felt weird - Don't worry, Jack isn't important to the story I just wanted a name)

Julia arched an eyebrow at the word friend. "I'm only showing concern for my sibling, as any good sister would," she said. "I don't suppose it's something I should go to Chiron about."

"Protective, hm?" Jude smirked. "I can respect that." He visibly relaxed a bit. "Listen, lady, I think you just heard the wrong stuff at the wrong time. Ramona's just clearly not feeling too well, that's all." The drawl that seeped through his words was more blatant now. "You don't have to worry about me. I won't be a problem for you after tonight."
With that, he gave a tight smile and passed Julia, heading back over to the dining area.

Wes frowned and explained about the napkin and the pebble. He knew he was supposed to feel bad and ashamed of what he had done, but they would probably come later. Yeah, this behavior was more in line with an Aries kid, but if he were an Aries kid, no one would've thrown anything at him in the first place. "So, yeah, Jack wasn't the first person to throw things at me. But he'll definitely be the last."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2017, 07:49:18 AM
Julia turned and watched him go, her frown growing. She just scoffed and started toward her cabin, wondering if she could get more out of Ramona. Whatever was going on, it didn't sound like something she wanted to be left out.

As if on cue, an old drachma was thrown at his face from one of the other tables.
The counselor sighed and rubbed her temple with one hand, still keeping hold of Wes. "Don't you think....that by reacting in such a violent way, you made the situation worse?" She asked.

As Julia started towards her cabin, a loud crash could be heard from the inside of the Hecate cabin.

Ramona was hunched over some broken glass, trying to pick up the remains of a smashed photo she'd knocked over somehow.
"...I-I'm fine." She immediately assured Julia, trying to hide the glass shards. "I'm feeling sick, I was just about to lay down, I...I knocked it over on accident."

Wes flinched when the drachma hit him, and he picked up the coin and slipped it into his pocket after it fell. "He shouldn't have done that," was all he said. I'm tired of getting pushed around. Sometimes, I think I'd be willing to beat up everybody in this camp if I had to.

(I don't know why Wes acts like this. This wasn't my plan.)

"Come with me to the infirmary." The counselor finally decided after a moment of hesitation. "We need to get your knuckles cleaned up and make sure you didn't hurt your hands. And I want you to apologize to Jack." Without a moment's hesitation, she started leading Wes out of the dining area.
A third crumpled napkin hit Wes' head.
This one was wet.
It came from the same girl from the Nike cabin, who was seated next to Owen.

Owen glanced at the girl who'd thrown the napkin. "Do you want to get in a fight, too?" He asked her.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2017, 11:39:55 AM
(I dunno man. Sometimes the characters just come out differently, you know?)

"I'm not going to the infirmary. I can clean my own hands, and you can be damn sure I'm not apologizing to Jack." Didn't this counselor know that apologizing to people gave them more power over you? No way was Wes going to give Jack that benefit.
Once the napkin hit his head, he turned around and headed straight for the Nike girl. She was toast, he decided. Absolute toast. Maybe he would get thrown out of camp for this, but that was fine. He'd been trying to get out of camp for years.

The daughter of Nike suddenly did not look like the girl who'd just been boasting, her eyes widening and her expression visibly going from 'Hahaha' to 'Oh no. This is bad. I should not have done this'.

Owen figured he should probably try and stop the fight. It would be the right thing to do to stop his sister from getting hurt, and yet...well, if she said she could win, let her prove it, right?

The girl glanced at Owen, and, seeing that he was doing nothing, narrowed her eyes - A plan was in motion. Turning back towards Wes, she waved her hands in defense.
"Hey, man, don't go after me! It was Owen's idea!" She protested, pointing at Owen accusatorily.

The girl fell, putting her hands out before her to stop her fall. It didn't work, and something cracked.
With a few curses, she held was looked like a dislocated finger and glared at Owen deeply before shifting her attention to Wes, cheeks flushed in embarrassment.
"You jerk!" She yelped, although she seemed confused as to how a fall like that could hurt her finger in that way. Nevertheless she was back on her feet and without hesitating flung herself at Wes, aiming her punches for his face.

Julia sighed as she looked at the blood. "I'll get something for that," ahe said and went to grab a washcloth and brought it to Ramona. "You may want to get that checked at the infirmary."

Julia nodded. It was extremely unlike her to be so willing to assist someone, even if it was her sister. But, she also wanted Ramona to open up to her. If manipulation was how she was going to do that, then so be it.

Ramona smiled, seemingly glad someone was helping her today. She took Julia's hand with her non-injured one and rather hastily hurried out of the Hecate cabin.
"I'm sorry if I seem a little anxious." Ramona shook her head. "Someone hid my meds, so I'm really out of it today."

Ramona frowned. "Did I say...Nevermind, nevermind- I meant that I misplaced them." She laughed unconvincingly. "I-I just couldn't find them all morning, a-and noon. I skipped breakfast and lunch to quadruple-check the whole cabin a-and..." She sighed. "I just...I misplaced them."

Figures. He was the jerk now. Whatever. This girl couldn't even throw a decent punch, anyway; Wes hoped that she was either new to training, or was better at weapons than hand to hand combat. One punch to the face, and she was down.

"Hey, it's okay. Maybe the infirmary has something to help. I'll try and look for your meds later." Julia smiled at her as they walked toward the infirmary. She could see some Apollo kids inside, but it seemed most everyone was still at dinner. Odd, considering most people were done by now.

(Is anyone from the fight in the infirmary?)

(He already punched her. And no, I don't believe anyone is except for Jack.)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 24, 2017, 06:34:33 AM
(Jack is! He's getting his bruised face, bloody nose, and busted lip treated! There'll be more in there soon, though...heh)

Ramona nodded. She worriedly glanced around the room, relaxing a bit upon seeing nobody in it was...whatever she was afraid to see.

(He already punched her. And no, I don't believe anyone is except for Jack.)
(Okay, so does that mean he hit her right then when she came up to him or before that?)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2017, 06:37:46 AM
(He hit her once she started punching him. I imagine she got a few hits in, but may or may not have done that much damage.)

"You okay?" Julia asked her as one of the kids came over and asked what had happened. "Oh, she cut it on a broken shard of glass," she explained to them.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 24, 2017, 06:48:03 AM
(Ohhhh, okay!! Maybe enough damage to warrant a visit to the infirmary? That's where I'm trying to have our Greek trio meet up.)

The girl fell to the floor, clutching at her nose.
"Ah, gods...." She hissed, glaring at Wes, but not getting up.

The counselor, who had somehow been distracted and conversing with a blonde older camper, rushed into the scene and grabbed Wes rather aggressively.
"Wes, what is wrong with you?" She scolded, not having seen the girl come at him first.

"He knocked me on the floor and punched me in the face!" The girl spat.

"You okay?" Julia asked her as one of the kids came over and asked what had happened. "Oh, she cut it on a broken shard of glass," she explained to them.

Ramona nodded. "I'm fine." She assured Julia.

The boy she was talking to nodded.
"I'll get bandages and some stuff to clean the cut, okay? It doesn't look too bad, so just hang tight."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2017, 06:57:21 AM
Julia nodded and then sat down in one of the chairs. "I'll just hang around, make sure they get you taken care of if that's alright with you."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2017, 08:41:47 AM
(Yeah, we can do that.)

Wes shrugged, saying nothing. It wouldn't do any good to try defending himself - the counselor wasn't going to listen to him. But hey, the girl had been able to leave a few sore spots on his face and neck; he knew they would become bruises. Wes just wanted out of this camp and to go home to his mortal family. Five years was a long enough separation, right? Maybe his dad would want him now.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 24, 2017, 08:54:34 AM
The counselor huffed as she checked over Wes' face. "Ugh, Someone'll need to take you to the infirmary."

"I do it." The blonde camper volunteered and stepped forward.

"Alright, ah..."

"Jude. I literally just introduced myself to you?" He rolled his eyes but smiled good naturedly.

The counselor shrugged. "Alright, Jude. You seem big enough to be able to handle this guy - Get Wes to the infirmary." She turned and scanned the other kids.

"And Wagner?" She pointed to Owen. "Take your sister up there too. You and Jude make sure she and Wes don't get in any more fights now."

Jude put an uncomfortably firm hand on Wes' shoulder. "Alright, let's go, pal."

Julia nodded and then sat down in one of the chairs. "I'll just hang around, make sure they get you taken care of if that's alright with you."

"Thanks." Ramona smiled, jumping a bit as the boy came back with some gauze and disinfectant.

"This might sting when I put it on, okay?" He informed her, dabbing the wound with a rag. Ramona winced. "Hey, hey, it's fine." He started wrapping the wound, but stopped when he found he was short. "Shoot. Uh, Linda!"

A red-haired girl piped up. "Yeah, B?"

"Can you get more guaze? Here, I'll send you with her." He patted Ramona's back and pushed her gently towards Linda. Ramona shot a scared look at him and at Julia before following the redhead. The boy turned to face Julia.

"Is she okay?" He asked, raising a brow.

"Get off me. I don't need you touching me," Wes grumbled, pushing Jude's hand away. He was really going to enjoy going to bed tonight. Especially since the conditions tonight would be good for sneaking out.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2017, 09:16:26 AM
"She's a bit of trainwreck today. Said something about losing or someone stealing her meds?" Julia phrased it as a question and then shrugged. "She won't say anything about what's going on, though."

"Get off me. I don't need you touching me," Wes grumbled, pushing Jude's hand away. He was really going to enjoy going to bed tonight. Especially since the conditions tonight would be good for sneaking out.

"Hey there. No need to be aggressive." Jude smirked. "Just trying to help out, friend." He held up his hands defensively before putting one on Wed again, this one on his arm as he begun to lead him to the infirmary. Once Wes and him were far enough from anyone to hear, Jude leaned in close. "You know, for a son of Hestia, you're awfully violent."

"She's a bit of trainwreck today. Said something about losing or someone stealing her meds?" Julia phrased it as a question and then shrugged. "She won't say anything about what's going on, though."

"Dang. Don't get me wrong but...Can't you just magic up a replacement for them? You Hecate guys are all potions and spells, yeah?" He cocked his head to the side.

Owen wasn't quite sure how to feel about all this. He felt bad that his sister had gotten hurt - and humiliated - but she kind of had it coming. Hopefully this would all blow over soon enough and he could tease her for it. Hey, remember when that Hestia kid decked you? Man, that was a show. He helped his sister up and hesitantly offered her a supportive arm.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 24, 2017, 10:37:07 AM
She looked up at him and hesitated before taking his hand and helping herself up.
"He must've cheated." She decided. "He totally cheated, right?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 24, 2017, 10:38:59 AM
Owen shrugged, fighting back a smile. "I don't think you can cheat in a fist fight."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 24, 2017, 10:44:24 AM
"You can with steroids." She countered before her eyes widened. "He's totally on steroids, isn't he?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2017, 11:17:53 AM
Wes chose not to say anything. He didn't care to defend himself in front of the counselors, and he definitely wasn't going to care enough to defend himself from Jude.

(I have decided that Wes is one of the worse off cases of fatherless children. Only it's doubly bad because he doesn't have his mother around, either.)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 24, 2017, 11:21:01 AM
"Why would he be on steroids?" Owen sighed, starting to head for the infirmiry. "I don't think he was planning to punch anyone today." Not outside of training, anyway.

(Oooh, poor Wes!)

Jude's eyes narrowed.
"I know how you feel, you know. Growing up without a mother is...hard, especially when doubled with the issues that being, you know, half blooded brings. I had to grow up with a lot of bull, I imagine you did too, on account of my mother Be -" He stopped. "Enyo." He lowered his voice. "Listen, Wes, yeah? The people here won't get to last long, but I think you might deserve a better life with some people that I know. You're misunderstood, kinda lost, yeah? I'm sure you wouldn't mind leaving with me sometime soon to join a better family. One that understands you - I don't want to get too specific, but...Something very big is going to happen. And I'm trying to find the people I think would be...Should be saved." He smirks lightly as they get to the infirmary. "Think on that, yeah?"

"Why would he be on steroids?" Owen sighed, starting to head for the infirmiry. "I don't think he was planning to punch anyone today." Not outside of training, anyway.

"...Fair enough. But he can't have played fair. I never lose!" She shook her fist at the air. "We're children of Nike, we don't lose like that!!"

"I think your idea of magic is a little misconstrued. In theory, yeah, I could get her some pills but it takes hella energy and whatnot." Julia shrugged and crossed her arms.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

"That doesn't count!" She huffed. "We already determined he didn't play fair!"

"I think your idea of magic is a little misconstrued. In theory, yeah, I could get her some pills but it takes hella energy and whatnot." Julia shrugged and crossed her arms.

"I see." The boy nodded. "That girl...Her name's Ramona, right? Do you think she's involved in anything bad?"

"You're just being difficult." The girl countered. "I'll prove he was cheating, you'll see!"

"Good luck," Owen told her half-honestly. "Let's get you to the infirmiry."

"Good luck," Owen told her half-honestly. "Let's get you to the infirmiry."

"Fine.." She surrendered, although still tried to lead the way there.

Julia frowned more. "Why do you ask?" She tilted her head.

"Oh, um.." He blushed. "I don't have a cabin to myself, but...I'm a son of Harpocrates. God of secrets - I-I can tell she's hiding something, I just don't know what, and....She seems really scared, which isn't her default state from the other times I've seen her.." He shook his head. "I just - You're her sister, I thought...maybe you might know at least some of what's up?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2017, 01:44:52 AM
Julia nodded slowly, her frown increasing slightly. "Yeah, she's not exactly an open book. But hey, like you said, I'm her sister so..."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 25, 2017, 02:12:19 AM
He shrugged his shoulders lightly. "It's okay - I don't have any siblings on my dad's side here, but from what I've watched on Full House even family keeps secrets from each other sometimes, so you shouldn't feel bad if you don't know what she's hiding." He smiled lightly and turned to leave.

The boy left the room - An 'augh!' was heard as he supposedly bumped into someone, and Ramona entered shortly after, hand now properly bandaged.

(I saw it, Cabbie. It's midterms season, and I've been busy.)

Wes raised an eyebrow. He wasn't sure which was worse; the kids in the cafeteria who had thrown stuff at him; or this guy, who apparently thought he was a mix of an armchair psychologist and a cult leader. "Whatever," he said, and resisted the urge to roll his eyes.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 26, 2017, 01:54:08 PM
(oh, okay...Sorry!!)

Jude simply smirked, eyes without any happiness as he guided Wes into the infirmary.
"Another victim from dinner?" A girl asked. Jude shrugged.
"Just patch him up." He said, nudging Wes over to the girl. He glanced at Julia in her seat and his grin widened, though he said nothing.

Julia locked eyes with Jude, and hers narrowed ever so slightly. She broke eye contact when Ramona re-entered, and wuickly stood up. "Better?" She asked her, briefly glancing back toward Jude and the guy he'd brought in with him.

Wes didn't bother giving up any information, either; he just let the girl do her business.

Julia locked eyes with Jude, and hers narrowed ever so slightly. She broke eye contact when Ramona re-entered, and wuickly stood up. "Better?" She asked her, briefly glancing back toward Jude and the guy he'd brought in with him.

Ramona nodded, hesitating when she looked at Jude and freezing for a moment before muttering a quick "...I'll meet you outside, Julia." And pushing past the blonde man to leave.
Jude raised a brow at Julia before pulling something out of his pocket.
"You tell Ramona that I found these for her." He told her, handing Julia an orange bottle of pills. "She should really keep better track of her things."

Wes didn't bother giving up any information, either; he just let the girl do her business.

The boy who'd sent off Ramona entered the room again and raised a brow.
"Geez, what happened to you?" He asked as the girl checked Wes' face.

Julia tensed up and narrowed her eyes at him. "Did you steal these?" She demanded.

Jude's smile only grew wider.
"Do I look like the kind of fellow who steals things?" He asked, laughing a bit. "No, I found them. Figured she'd want them." He shrugged and turned, leaving Julia with the bottle.

Julia watched him go, seething underneath her glare that was aimed at his back. She glanced at the boy getting his ice pack, and though she was mildly curious about the fight, she was more curious about what was going on with Ramona. She followed after her half sister, but not before she tucked the pills into her back pocket, out of sight.

Ramona stood just outside the infirmary with her hands shaking as her eyes followed the blonde man as he walked away. Seeing Julia, she seemed to lunge to grab her half-sister's arm.
"Julia, I need to tell you something." She confessed, eyes wide.

Julia raised her eyebrows and leaned back slightly from her. "What is it?"

"I.." She let her shoulders slump. "Things aren't fine. Um...that guy, he came up to me a day or two ago talking about some kind of plan he has?? And...I think he wanted me and maybe a few other campers to leave the camp with him, and I said no, and he hasn't left me alone. I think he's going to try and make me go." Her hands shook more. "And I'm too shaken up and tired to be able to defend myself when he does!"

"Will do." Wes smiled back at the guy, though it wasn't a particularly big one.

The boy nodded and looked around.
"Well, it doesn't look like you need anything more than that. If you think you need to lay down there's a cot, but if you think you're fine you can head back to dinner. Or your cabin." He shrugged.

"Okay, here we are," Owen said, leading his sister into the infirmary. "And here he is," he added, glancing at Wes. He tried to stand between Wes and his sister, not wanting yet another fight to break out.

The boy raised a brow. "I'm gonna ask right now if this chick's another victim of the dining hall." He quipped,nodding to the other girl as she went to get another ice pack and some tissues and disinfectant.

Nicole raised her fists as if she were expecting another fight between her and Wes, although she started nothing. She merely cast some very nasty accusatory glares at the son of Hestia.

Wes noticed Nicole - and the glare she gave him - but he ignored her. He decided to lay down on one of the cots rather than go back to his cabin. If he left now, so soon after Nicole and Owen arrived, he would look weak.

Julia's frown deepened. What was this kid's deal? "What does he want you to do?" She asked. "Or do you know? Has he given you any details?"

"He...didn't explain too much, but I think...he and whoever he told me about...need people with magic? To...I think...I don't know why, he might of told me but I can't focus on too much right now." Ramona admitted. "But he didn't just show up all alone, h-he's part of some bigger group like..." She lowered her voice. "Like Luke Castellan or something. You know, he tried to summon that titan dude??"

Wes noticed Nicole - and the glare she gave him - but he ignored her. He decided to lay down on one of the cots rather than go back to his cabin. If he left now, so soon after Nicole and Owen arrived, he would look weak.


The boy turned to face Wes as he headed to the cot. "Tell me if you need anything, okay, big guy?" He said before turning back to face Owen and his sister.
"Here, Lin'll take care of her." He explained as the girl came back and begun treating Nicole's facial wounds. He glanced back at Owen, looking him over. "You're a..child of Nyx, right? No, uh, Nemesis? Help me out, I'm faltering."

(awesome!)

The boy glanced at Wes and frowned.
"Yeesh, did he get Jack back there, too?" He asked.
Lin came back with Nicole, who's nose was now stuffed with tissue.
"Well, you can take her back to her cabin and you back to yours." The boy shrugged. "Your name's Owen, isn't it?" He tilted his head to the side.

"It's cool to meet you, Owen - I'm Brady." The boy smiled and held out his hand as if expecting a handshake.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on March 08, 2017, 04:18:50 PM
"Back at you." Owen returned Brady's smile and accpeted his handshake.

Julia went back to their cabin and went inside, holding the door open for Ramona with her back against it.

"Back at you." Owen returned Brady's smile and accpeted his handshake.

Brady nodded, still pleasantly smiling, and let go, walking away to go discuss something with Lin.

Julia went back to their cabin and went inside, holding the door open for Ramona with her back against it.

Ramona rushed inside with a sudden intensity, throwing herself onto her bed and wrapping the covers around her faster than she'd ever thrown herself onto a bed and wrapped the covers around her before.
"I'm sorry, this is all super weird."

(Alright! Um, Kira, do you want to say that Julia gave Ramona back her meds or leave it not like that?)

(Sure, that's fine)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 05, 2017, 12:16:27 AM
(Alright!)

The meds had left Ramona unusually sleepy, and when she finally went out she was out. Too far gone to notice anyone sneaking in and pulling her out of her bunk. Too far gone to realize that wasn't her anxiety medication. By the time anyone checked her bed it was too late to track her down.

But she and Jude were both gone.

"We don't know where they went, but from what I've been hearing their reasons for leaving..can't be good." The same counselor from the night before explained. "We're going to need volunteers to track them down. Anyone?" She stared at the crowd of campers in front of her.

(Okay, so this part will go quicker - Your characters are in the crowd!)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on April 06, 2017, 10:10:10 AM
Wes frowned. Something had definitely seemed off about that Jude kid, and Wes was glad he hadn't gone with him - but why had Ramona gone? Wouldn't most campers have known better than to go sneaking off with potential cult leaders?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 06, 2017, 10:17:32 AM
Julia crossed her arms, tapping her foot. She looked around, and when no one was raising their hands, she finally did. Her arm shot up before she really got what she was doing, but she felt obligated. Sort of. She told herself she just wanted to know what was going on.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 06, 2017, 10:49:27 AM
The counselor seemed relieved.
"Julia Ambrose!" She announced. "Please, step forward - Stand by me, here!" She motioned for Julia to come over. "Does anyone else volunteer? She can't go on a quest alone."
Her eyes crossed the crowd, settling on one figure she recognized causing trouble the previous night.
"Wes Carter." She announced. "You come up here, too - I think going on a quest might do you some good." She smirked a bit.

Wes frowned. He debated for a minute about protesting, but decided it really could be good for him - this was his chance to leave and go back home to his family. So he nodded and walked up to stand next to Julia.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 08, 2017, 11:26:01 AM
Owen frowned. Wasn't that the guy who punched his sister earlier? He didn't really trust him on a quest to save someone after that kind of first impression. "I'll go too," he called, putting a hand in the air. If Wes lost it again, he could help Julia stop him from hurting anyone. Plus, he could hardly imagine the kind of bragging rights going on an actual quest would get him back at his cabin. Talk about a victory! Of course, that was assuming things went well, but hey, no use thinking to hard about the bad end.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 08, 2017, 03:20:17 PM
The counselor smiled.
"Wonderful! So the quest party is put together!" She chirped. "I recommend you get your things packed and head off as soon as -"

A hissing voice from in the back of the ground interrupted.

Three to enter, more to come,
Weaving tales of ancient ones.
One to fall, others to fight,
Before red flame engulfs the night.


The Oracle - Rachel Dare?
The counselor seemed shocked, glancing at the trio and then back to where she heard the voice.

"You...erm." She cleared her throat. "Julia Ambrose, Wes Carter, and Owen Wagner!" She announced. "May your quest yield victory and glory!"
Halfhearted applause.
Looks like it's official.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 08, 2017, 04:08:54 PM
Julia's expression remained placid as the other two joined her. She waited until the counselor finished their ridiculous spiel, then turned to Owen and Wes. "I'll just warn you now, I don't play well with others. Don't try to be my friend, don't make stupid small talk, and don't get in my way," she pointed her finger at them both before she turned on her heel and started walking back toward the cabins to get her things packed. Finally, she'd get to do things her way and get some real answers about what had been going on.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on April 08, 2017, 11:12:04 PM
"Because I was itching to be your friend before," Wes muttered, and headed off to the Hestia cabin to get his things. Whatever. As long as they didn't try to drag him back to camp, he didn't care what Julia and Owen did.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on April 08, 2017, 11:44:57 PM
Well, this team was off to a splendid start. Owen watched the other two leave and returned to his cabin to pack.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 09, 2017, 06:56:26 AM
(Perfect!! This is going great!)

The counselor caught up with Julia quickly. "Okay, since you're the quest leader here, I'm going to give this to you." She handed the other girl a slip of paper with five words:

MEDLEY CENTRE, ROCHESTER, NEW YORK

"This was found with the clothes and bags that Jude left. It's not much, but it's a lead."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 09, 2017, 08:01:44 AM
"That's not too far," Julia shrugged. At least they weren't trekking across the country. She nodded to tye counselor and slipped it into her pocket.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 09, 2017, 10:17:17 AM
The counselor nodded. "Yeah. Good luck." She gave a halfhearted salute and walked away. "I have a feeling you'll need it."

(And with that, we can end the Greek prologue!! The next time they'll show up is when they've gotten to the Medley Centre, so that'll be a time skip. Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves what monsters or troubles they might encounter or what arguments or interactions they may have during that time!! Lee and Blue, you ready for Romans??)

It was a cloudy day over Camp Jupiter, which led into a starless night. Fog rolled over the surrounding hills, casting an air of mystery over the area. In the darkness, a silhouette leaned against a barrack, phone pressed against her ear.

"You were right - This place is way more militant than that Greek place. I can imagine you're having much more fun getting to sing Kumbaya with the Half-Bloods and such."

Silence for a moment.

"Ha, yes, don't worry. My mission will only take a night, and then I'll be able to call you more once I have what I came for. Don't sound so desperate."

Laughter.

"I love you too. Gotta go, I can't stay in one place for too long. Bye!"

The girl looked up at the dark sky and smirked. Looks like she picked the right time to strike.

(Okay, so your characters should maybe have heard this mystery girl and could try to catch her or something!)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on April 14, 2017, 07:10:38 AM
(I can't tell if she's meant to be a new camper of if she's like a spy or something, but I'm gonna go with new camper for now.)

Francis crouched in a corner near the barracks, hiding as best he could in the minimal shadows of the day. He had a bad feeling about this girl, although even admitting that made him feel crummy about himself - it wasn't fair to judge her when she had just arrived. What was it his father had said, though? A demigod should trust his intuition? Francis hoped he was right as he listened.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 14, 2017, 01:36:18 PM
(Oh, it's implied she was just a spy, but that works too!)

The girl pocketed her phone and glanced around. Her frizzy black hair pulled into two twin buns on her head and her figure rather petite, she didn't seem too intimidating.
"Is...someone there? You can come out if you are, I don't bite!" Her voice was very soothing and seemed to have a strong pull to it, as if she oft used it to get what she wanted. "Eavesdropping is really rude."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on April 17, 2017, 08:49:30 AM
Francis felt some unexplainable urge to answer her. "I wasn't; I was just passing by and didn't want to distract you."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on April 17, 2017, 03:05:26 PM
"Oh, is that right?" The girl batted her long lashes. "Well then, I guess there's no reason to hide any longer if you've got nothing to hide." She smiled. "My name's Medea - What's yours?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

"Mmm - Nice name." She smiled rather sweetly. "You been here a while, Francis?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on May 05, 2017, 12:16:44 PM
"I grew up here, yeah. How are you adjusting to the camp?" Francis asked. Something about her smile was off-putting, but he couldn't figure out what exactly it was.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on May 06, 2017, 12:46:35 AM
"I guess I've been adjusting as well as anyone would." Medea shrugged. "I've known about this place and this whole mythology gig for a while, actually."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on May 11, 2017, 10:00:46 AM
Francis raised an eyebrow. "Oh, really? How long?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on May 11, 2017, 11:25:34 PM
She stopped before smiling again, this time a bit wider as if trying to be reassuring. "Oh, well, I'd say for around maybe nine or ten years?"

Francis frowned. "But you haven't been here this whole time." He would have seen her before now if she had been. Francis grew up in New Rome.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on May 17, 2017, 10:36:02 PM
"The world's a bit bigger than you think it is, Francis." A cold stare cast itself over Medea as her smile seemed a bit more sinister in the shadows of the night. "A lot bigger, actually."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on May 21, 2017, 05:33:22 AM
Francis took a step back away from her. "Y-yeah, I figured that."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 11:19:20 AM
Medea's smile reset itself from its previously dark state and she let out a soft giggle. "So, Francis, I don't really have too much time to really stop, you know, gotta take in all that I can about this place, right? You're welcome to help show me around, though, if you still want to chat and all - Wouldn't want me getting lost~"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 11:39:38 AM
(So I'm gonna go out on limb and assume she has some kind of persuasion ability?)

"Um, um...sure." Francis cleared his throat and walked closer to her. "Have you seen New Rome yet?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 12:06:08 PM
(Ohh you guessed it!)

"No, I haven't - Heard it's pretty nice, but it'd take a lot to convince me it's better than Seattle..Why're you asking? Is that the place to be here at Jupiter?" Medea crossed her arms and raised a brow. "I've admittedly been trying to find the places with all the history - You know, the old books and maps and all."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 12:09:21 PM
(Booya!)

"It's, uh, where all the civilian stuff is. And where all the fun things are," Francis said. Why exactly he was walking this stranger around town, when he didn't trust her at all, he didn't know. But for some reason, his suspicions didn't seem as important as walking her around town.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 12:15:26 PM
(I was hoping someone could guess it~ I felt like Charmspeak would make for an excellent villain trait!)

"Ah, so it is the place to be." Medea laughed. "I'm glad that this place has somewhere fun - I was getting a bit intimidated by how rigid everything seemed to be!"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 12:30:44 PM
(I think it does too :) )

"Well, we're not there all that often. Lots of training and stuff. But when we do have time, it's pretty much the place to be." Francis was beginning to feel more at ease the more they talked.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 12:45:13 PM
Medea hummed in understanding. "I assumed there'd be training and...less fun stuff. But I should be glad about that, really - My father had always told me that there wasn't anywhere for children like me to be truly safe." Her eyes narrowed as she scanned the area around her, smile unfaltering. "It's awful reassuring to know that he seems to have been wrong."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 01:04:23 PM
Francis nodded slowly. "Yeah, Camp Jupiter's a pretty safe place. So, um, who's your godly parent?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 01:14:16 PM
Medea laughed as if the question were a joke. "What, have my good looks and great hair failed in giving me away?" She grinned good-naturedly. "..My mother is Venus."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 01:27:15 PM

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Francis chuckled. "Yeah, no kidding."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 01:42:53 PM
"Hope you know that I will call you little brother even if you're older than me - I've been wanting a little sibling ever since I was four, I would -" She paused, her face frozen as if she'd slipped up and revealed or came close to revealing too much. Her expression melted from joy to caution to something somber and avoidant. "...Well, I'd call you that..if I stayed, that is."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 01:50:21 PM
"If you..stayed? What do you mean?" Francis closed his eyes, trying to concentrate again. Reality had gone fuzzy for a moment, and he missed a good chunk of what Medea had just said.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 01:56:12 PM
"I...Nothing - I've just spent a good while on the run, you know? Believing that there really is nowhere safe for me. I can't help but feel like I'm just another invader, like I always feel - Like I'll bring more harm than good even if I try not to." She glanced at her feet as she walked, her expression sorrowful - Although in a slightly unnatural way, like the sadness of an actor on a screen. "So I'm not good about staying in one place, even if it tries to boast safety and family."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 01:59:14 PM
"Hey, you never know," he said softly. Francis stopped walking and reached out to touch her arm - he wanted to make her feel better, even more than he wanted to show her the city. "Maybe this time it will work, and you can have that safety and family."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on July 31, 2017, 02:12:14 PM
Medea smiled tightly, as if there was still something she wanted to say but had decided not to. "Thank you, li - Francis. Maybe you're right..." She laughed softly, this time sounding more genuine than before. "Wouldn't that be perfect. It's nice that you seem to understand - You don't seem to be like the other folks I've met. Maybe that's because of the whole sibling gig, but...It's reassuring that there seems to be someone in this world who looks like they can be there for me - Do you have a lot of friends here?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 03, 2017, 03:26:38 AM
"I try to be there for everyone," said Francis with a small smile. "And no, I don't have a lot of friends. I usually keep my circle small."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 04, 2017, 10:20:28 AM
A small smile crossed Medea's face, as if that was the correct answer. "I guess we have that in common. Are you close to your other siblings here? There are other children of Venus here, right?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 05:33:23 AM
"There are, yeah. We're in different cohorts, though, so I don't know all of them really well. The only other one of my siblings I'm close to is Arianna," Francis said to her.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 05, 2017, 09:28:26 AM
"Ah, I see...Out of curiosity..Which do you think you'd value more, Francis - Family or Camp Jupiter?" Medea bit her lip as if she was nervous about revealing too much. "If you hypothetically had to, yknow, decide."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 10:08:40 AM
Francis paused. "I...don't know. Why do you ask?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 05, 2017, 10:42:22 AM
Medea shifted, eyes glancing to the side. "...Well, I happen to be aware of some...situations arising, and I just felt the need to ask what sort of side you would take if you had to. You know. Choose."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 10:47:18 AM
Francis said nothing. He didn't want to have to choose between his family and Camp Jupiter. He couldn't.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 05, 2017, 11:25:25 AM
Medea's expression softened. "Just something to think about, I suppose. Sorry if it's an uncomfortable question...Perhaps we should end the conversation here?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 11:35:52 AM
"Well...wait. What kind of situations are you talking about?" Francis asked her, stopping their walk.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 05, 2017, 11:57:53 AM
"I..." She seemed to mentally debate something for a moment. "The reason I may not stay is because there's a group of people I'm in contact with who...Well, the important thing I suppose is that they're...like family. And family is something I've learned to hold dear. I suppose that I'm concerned about you now that I know you're family as well. I-I don't want to say too much, though, because if it turns out that you don't value family like I do, then...What I say or do won't matter, I guess." She looked up at Francis with wide eyes - The same offness to them as before, although her words most likely did sound genuine. "Just...forget it. It's nothing, really."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 06, 2017, 01:06:37 PM
"No, Medea, really, you can tell me. It's like you said - we're family." Francis wasn't sure why he was pushing it, but something about her seemed to invite him in, to prompt him to ask more.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 06, 2017, 02:55:16 PM
"I..." She glanced at the darkening sky as if awaiting a cue or opportunity. "...I'll..." A smirk tugged at the corner of her lip before her expression switched back to the somber look she had before. "We should end the conversation here. I will tell you...If I know you really do value family." She took a few backward steps away from Francis. "Remember that, okay? I'll tell you more tomorrow!"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 07, 2017, 12:33:28 PM
When tomorrow came it was with darker morning skies and dry, crisp air that had a surprising cold bite.

Medea was gone. Nowhere to be found. What was a bit more chilling about that was how no one seemed to care, or acknowledge that the girl who'd newly arrived yesterday has vanished today. As the fog from the previous day lingered, almost frozen, as the camp continued on as it always had, as if nothing happened. But something did happen.

Left resting daintly next to Francis' bed was a note - How it had gotten there and was so unnoticed and undisturbed was a mystery.
Sorry - Couldn't stick around. Wanted to really tell you, but figured maybe it'd be better to show you.
Meet me at the Medley Center in Rochester, New York, if you really do value family. A bit of a journey but it'll be worth it, I swear. Besides, if you need help I've got a phone.

- Your Cool New Sister

PS: Someone may have taken something from your camp. Nothing huge, just like, a map, but maybe it'd be best skedaddle and sneak out before people realize it's gone and remember me and remember the fact that you were the one last seen with me. Just looking out for the family here.


In between the signature and the PS was a phone number swirled along the paper in surprisingly nice calligraphy. Also in pink gel pen, but that was less important.

What was important was that Franicis had a note, a location, a phone number, and a missing half sister.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Francis held on to the note as he went about his daily activities. Looking back on it, he couldn't explain what had drawn him to Medea, but something about her had been irresistible. He hadn't been able to turn away or stop listening to her. And even now, just reading the note, he felt some kind of nagging urge to go to New York and find her.

Not to mention his cohort leader had questioned him about where Medea might have gone, and Francis' answer of "I don't know," was not satisfying him. So, once night had fallen, he packed up a small bag of necessities and snuck out of camp. How exactly he was going to get to New York, he had no idea, but he had to at least start.

Name: Melinda (Mindy) Morrison
Age: 15
Godly Parent: N/A
Association: Valhalla (Valkyrie)
Appearance: Mindy's on the tall side and gangly despite some muscle. She has a heart-shaped face with freckles dotting her dark skin across her nose and cheeks. Large, round glasses cover large, round brown eyes usually accentuated by winged eyeliner (Mindy is not one for subtle makeup). She dresses in muted colors, her red lipstick the main splash of color in her outfits, and is especially fond of cargo pants; her pockets are constantly full of hair ties, packs of gum, small tools, and other bits and bobs. She usually wears her hair up in two pom-pom pigtails high on her head.
Personality: Mindy tries to keep a cool, calm, and collected façade, but she's easily flustered and shy to approach people socially (taking heroes to Valhalla is a different ball game). She acts confident, but it's all false bravado, and loss or failure hits her hard. She trusts her gut over her mind and as a result is pretty impulsive despite her fear of failure. She tends to collect just about anything she can carry easily, just in case it's useful later, or if it's just neat to look at (thus the cargo pants).
Backstory: I don't know yet, but I'll probably come up with something down the road.
Other: A devoted gamer in her free time, though admittedly she doesn't have much of that between school, family, and Valkyrie work. (I may regret this character choice given that I know like two things about video games.)

(And there she is! Hope that works! I'm gonna go to bed soon-ish but I'm down to get this ball rolling first)

"Ingrid, this isn't the right way to do this." A brown-haired boy grabbed onto the arm of a girl with bright red hair. "Just stop for two seconds and please let me just talk to you!"

"If you won't listen to me then why should I listen to you?!" The girl - Ingrid - Nearly screeched as she whirled around to face the boy, her black sclera and orange irises now visible. "You think the 'right way to do this' is to just - To just be complacent! You want to just let yourself suffer and burn f-for some gods who don't even care about us! Yeah, I hope you have fun kissing Odin's kingly boots because, unlike some people, I refuse to let myself or anyone else I care about get hurt by those disgusting selfish Aesir or Vanir or whatevers!"

"It's not like that!" The boy insisted. "I don't want to just do nothing, I-I just think that your delusions are getting too out of hand! You're hanging out with some cult and saying that you want to start a war a-and you're not thinking straight!"

The girl was silent for a moment, glancing down at the boy's hand on her arm.

"Let go of me, August." She snarled. "If you won't join me, then stay out of my way!" The final word was a screech as she  slammed her free arm into the boy's - August's - stomach. Orange flame flickered from her fingertips as August was sent backwards with an 'ooph', smoke leaving the charred hole in his shirt where he was struck. Surprisingly, for someone who'd just been gutpunched by someone who's hand was on fire, his skin through the hole in his shirt looked perfectly fine.

August groaned a bit as he bent over and crossed his arms over his stomach.

"You're my sister, Ingrid," He choked out, sounding almost on the verge of tears. "You're the only family I've had for as long as I can remember, and you know I love you. But this is - This is wrong. Whatever you and those creeps you keep in contact with are doing, p-people will die."

"It's like you said." The flame in Ingrid's hand grew brighter. "It's a war we want. People will die. That's the point." A ball of flame was sent in August's direction, barely giving him time to dodge. Fortunately he did seem to have decent reflexes as he dove to the side, hitting his head on the countertop nearby that was littered with papers and orange perscription bottles. The blow caused him to hiss in pain, but it was evident he'd have no time to recover as Ingrid grabbed the back of his shirt and lifted him back up, turning him around and slamming him down on the aforementioned countertop with strength that one would not expect from her thin frame.

"Ingrid - You need to listen to me -" He choked out, struggling surprisingly valiantly against his sister's grip. "You know this is wrong - You can stop this now! Y-You don't have to do this! I know you, you're my sister, you're not a murderer! What you're trying to do will just get so many innocent people killed, I-"

"I've put up with so much from you." Ingrid growled, flames starting to engulf the hand she was using to hold her brother down. "The least you could do for me is stop talking!"

August looked left, and then right, and grunted as he reached across the countertop for a handgun lying next to an empty beer can and a half-full bottle of prescription drugs.

"What are you -"

August fired.

Ingrid roared as she let go of August to grip at her shoulder, blood beginning to ooze from between her fingers. August stood back up, pointing the pistol with a surprising amount of bravery in his eyes and stance, despite his hands obviously trembling.

"I can't just let you go and start some massacre." He retorted, voice shaking slightly. "If you're serious about wanting to start a war, th-then I'm serious about, you know....Having to stop you."

Ingrid took her hand off her shoulder and looked at the blood that now coated her palm. She then looked back at August, eyes wide.

She charged straight at August with little regards to the other bullet he fired at her shoulder and the one that he fired into her stomach when she grabbed onto him, shoving him through the glass of a nearby window.

Getting pushed out of a 6-story building after trying to kill your war-starting sister is not a very good way to go, motivations and bravery aside. When the boy hit the concrete it was headfirst. 

~

The dining hall was nearly completely silent as the Valkyrie-Vision video ended and as August stood, trembling, as he finished watching his own death. Hearing the talk about starting a war and insulting the gods was...Ooph.

At a table, sitting across from where August's seat was was Kelsey, who was very focused on the contents of his drink as he tried to forgot the sound of skull splattering against concrete - Falling was his second least favorite way of dying, after being burned alive. Also being shot was somewhere up there, but that was only depending on where on the body - He snapped out of his focus to look back at the newcomer. Admittedly, seeing him stand and tremble was pitiful and Kelsey wished he could offer some kind of comfort - However, he wasn't sure if a noise or anything would make things better for the other einherji or worse.

A valykrie sitting with the rest turned to face the one who'd brought August to Valhalla. "You sure you didn't, like...tamper with the video? This kid looks ready to start crying."

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 08, 2017, 02:11:58 PM
"I didn't," Mindy promised, glancing at August. There was no way anyone could deny the kid had died an honorable death in combat, but he wasn't doing much to look like a brave warrior at the moment.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 09, 2017, 09:32:54 AM
The silence was eventually broken by Helgi clearing his throat.

"Well, that was....a rather dramatic death." He announced, earning a bit of faint laughter and a few sounds of agreement. "August Söderberg, do you know your parentage?"

August shifted. "..My father is the god Logi." He mumbled.

"A son of Loki!" Helgi announced.

"Logi! With a G!" August nervously raised his voice. "As in the god of fire, not...not Loki."

"Oh. That..." Helgi paused and glanced back at the tree where August's death was shown, then back at the others sitting beside him. "Yeah, that makes more sense. Nevertheless! We find August Söderberg worthy of Valhalla!"

Some applause - A little fainter than usual, but still nice. August didn't seem very happy with being worthy, for some reason.

"The runes state that you'll be a worthy strategist during the fight at Ragnarok, and you shall be shot in the throat sometime in the coming week!"

Kelsey grimaced and empathetically put a hand to his neck. Ouch. August gulped and his eyes widened as he somehow got even paler. Even after the noise died down, August stood still - Paralyzed, eyes wide.

"....Your Valykrie will show you back to your seat now." Helgi noted after a while.

Mindy took her cue and tugged on August's sleeve. Hopefully she'd be able to cheer him up some somewhere a little more private.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 09, 2017, 12:36:24 PM
August flinched at the tug, but got the message and moved from his frozen stance. "Sorry." He mumbled, keeping his eyes fixed on the ground.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 09, 2017, 01:37:15 PM
Mindy shook her head. "Can you keep it together through dinner?" she asked. Oof, that'd come out a little harsher than she intended.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 09, 2017, 01:53:24 PM
August flinched again. "Ah, I...Yes, I'm fine, I just...This is...a lot. To..take in." He stuttered. "Just...um...I wasn't....." He put both his hands on his face and let out a muffled, quiet and very rushed "I was hoping so hard that if I died like this I'd go to Folkvangr".
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 09, 2017, 02:32:01 PM
"Oh." Mindy wasn't sure what to say to that. It was understandable, sure. August didn't seem like the type to enjoy the constant violence Valhalla offered. "Well, here you are." She shrugged and gave an apologetic smile. Wow, three cheers for showing sympathy, Mindy.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 01:45:16 AM
August didn't seem very pleased to hear that - In fact, he looked the exact opposite. "Yeah, here I am." He removed his hands from his face and let his arms fall to his side, gaze glued to the floor. "I guess I'll just, y'know...get used to it?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 02:21:44 AM
"People do," Mindy tried to assure him. "Get used to it, I mean."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 02:39:32 AM
"I can see that." August responded, glancing at the numerous Valhallans seated in the hall. "Although...I don't think I can stay here comfortably knowing my sister's still alive. I - I couldn't. Stop her."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 03:21:32 AM
"Yeah, that...that does suck," Mindy agreed. The two of them reached the table and she nudged August toward his seat.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 06:00:47 AM
August got the message and sat down, staring down at the table almost pathetically. Kelsey leaned gently across.

"Hey, kid, you doin' alright?" He asked, glancing up almost accusatorily at the Valykrie as if he suspected she said something rude to the boy. "You look a bit like you need a drink or somethin'."

"...I'm 16." August narrowed his eyes and frowned.

"So am I, do you wanna freakin' fight about it?" An Australian girl sitting next to Kelsey smirked. Kelsey sighed.

"I just meant a splash o' water or somethin', buddy. You're gonna dehydrate yourself with all that nervous sweatin'." He glanced back at Mindy. "Say, hate ta seem rude or anything but are ya sure that, ah, this kid's video was.....right? Boy seems rightly horrified here - Not exactly warrior material."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 06:15:20 AM
Mindy stiffened. "Like I said, I didn't change the video." She glanced at August's back, hoping he wouldn't notice. She'd like to get indignant on his behalf, but Kelsey had a point. August had died a heroic death, that was for sure, but Mindy was starting to doubt if she should have chosen him for Valhalla.
No, it wouldn't do to think like that. Even if it was a mistake, it was made, and she'd have to defend it if she came under fire. She just hoped August wouldn't make that job harder than he already had.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 07:22:17 AM
"Right, yes, I believe you." Kelsey held his hands up defensively. "Here, Valkyrie - Pull up a chair next to August, here, won't you? Ya seem almost stiffer than he is. Maybe some good-natured conversation would help relax the both of you."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 08:02:33 AM
Yeah, talking to people was super relaxing. Still, Mindy didn't want to be rude, so she obliged and sat down next to August, hoping the kid wouldn't mind.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 08:34:36 AM
Kelsey gave a tight smile to her as she sat down, looking over both August and Mindy. "Right. So, while I know one of your names -" He motioned to August. "We haven't rightly introduced ourselves so I believe I'll be the first to do just that." He held a bony hand out to the both of them good-naturedly. "Good evening, my name is Kelsey Young."

August shook his hand halfheartedly. "Like I said, you already know my name." He quickly drew his hand back from the handshake and set it on his lap.

Kelsey shrugged and shifted his attention to Mindy, hand still extended.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 08:54:12 AM
Mindy accepted his handshake. "Melinda Morrison," she told him. "Everyone calls me Mindy."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 10:04:56 AM
"Mindy!" Kelsey nodded. "It's a pleasure to meet you." He crossed his arms in front of his chest. "So, you been at this Valkyrie gig long now?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 12:43:07 PM
Mindy cleared her throat. "Um, no," she admitted. "A few months." How long had it been now? Half a year, maybe?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 12:49:42 PM
"Ah, I see - Still new to it, then." Kelsey scratched at the back of his head before continuing. "Say, you're still o' those livin' folks. How's the 2017 going? Not many folk I meet here like talkin' about the Midgard and what's going on there."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 01:23:48 PM
"It's, uh..." Mindy blew a loose strand of hair out of her face. "It's okay." Ish. Not really, but this didn't seem the time to discuss it. Kelesy could ask one of the recent arrivals if he really wanted to know. Maybe someone more...stable than August.

(Question: Cab, are you going somewhere with this scene? Because I think character-wise Mindy would leave the conversation but if that's gonna mess something up I don't wanna do that)
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 01:48:18 PM
(Hm...Well, I was going to try and segway things to something else but since I'm not sure how I'll spare you the awkwardness and try to just bring it up now!)

Kelsey raised a brow. "Is the dab still cool? Because I think I've got it -"

"How can you guys just sit around and chat when you all saw what my sister said and did?" August suddenly interjected, eyes narrowed and glaring at Mindy and Kelsey. "I wasn't able to stop her, and shes insane, and shouldn't there be some kind of, like...thing you guys are doing to, you know, catch this lady before she tries to kill your gods?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 10, 2017, 03:02:46 PM
Mindy hesitated, then scratched her head. "Me? There's...not really anything I can do." She bit her lip and added, "Sorry." She had to admit August had a point. She was a little surprised there hadn't been more disturbance after what they'd seen.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 10, 2017, 03:36:29 PM
"She seems harmless in my opinion." The Australian sitting next to Kelsey chimed in. "I mean, aside from killing people - It doesn't look to me like some PMS punk ginger with campfire powers can do much on her own to take down Odin and the rest of the gods."

Kelsey shifted in his seat. "You don't have ta apologize, M-" He quietly brought up before being interrupted again.

"My sister is not working alone." August exclaimed. "Shes been in contact with others - It's idiotic that everyone watched what happened and nobody's brought up anything about doing anything about it. Someone needs to do something."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 11, 2017, 11:07:22 AM
Mindy bit her lip and reached out a hand to August to calm him down, then thought better of it and lowered her hand again. "Look, I don't--there's nothing I can do," she repeated.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 11, 2017, 12:17:53 PM
"Is there??" August snapped - Emotions previously held down were now spilling out. "Some warrior of Odin you are."

The Australian girl tilted her head to the side. "There is something you could do, actually. Or at least something someone here could do."

August looked back. "What is it?"

"There's plenty of ways for folks here to sneak back to Midgard." She explained. "In fact, me and the others here on Floor 83 have snuck out a lot!"

"Me not included." Kelsey interjected, shaking his head. "I only snuck out once with these idiots and that was back to Ireland in 1975. Never again."

"All I'm say is if August wants so badly to get his sister there's a way for him to." The Aussie sneered.

"I can't go." August frowned. "I couldn't win against her the first time, I can't win against her now. Someone more experienced than me would have to bite the bullet for me."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 11, 2017, 02:21:45 PM
Mindy hoped he didn't mean her. She wasn't exactly what you'd call experienced. "You, um, you get stronger when you die," she offered. "Even if you couldn't before, you might be able to stand a chance now."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 11, 2017, 02:39:29 PM
"What makes you think I could last again with her, new strength or whatever or none?" August raised a brow. "Like I implied before, I'm not exactly as much as a fighter as she is even with all this."

"Not to mention if you die out there again there's no goin' back." Kelsey noted.

"Kelsey!" The Australian girl frowned.

"I'm just saying!" The Irish man protested.

"Yeah, well I'm saying that I think you people should really do something." August looked at Mindy. "You're a Valykrie, yeah? So you're tough and durable and stuff. You could go do it."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 11, 2017, 04:47:56 PM
"I--I'm not--" Mindy fumbled. "I mean, I could, yes, but I'm not really supposed to go on missions and stuff without permission." Plus, I just got here! she added to herself.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 12, 2017, 12:04:17 AM
"Yeah, but you saw how insane my sister was being." August frowned. "How badly should permission hold you back when we both know what the right thing to do is?"

"You can't seriously be trying to send Mindy out there on her own." Kelsey protested. "She hasn't even been a Valykrie for too long - No offense ta you, Mindy."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 12, 2017, 12:32:47 AM
"None taken," she assured Kelsey. "Look, loyalty is kind of a big deal. I'd get in a lot of trouble if I just up and left. Everybody saw this, so if the people in charge think it's worth addressing, it's their call, okay?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 12, 2017, 01:04:54 AM
August narrowed his eyes. "Like I said. Some 'warrior of Odin' you are."

"Don't be rude." Kelsey ordered.

"Then don't be cowards." August retorted.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 12, 2017, 01:30:21 AM
Mindy was starting to think August wouldn't have been a good candidate for Folkvagner after all. She debated if it was worth it to get angry. "I'm not a coward," she insisted, letting an edge creep into her voice. "I just know my place."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on August 12, 2017, 01:38:31 AM
"And yet your place seems to be doing absolutely nothing. I really should've guessed!" August sneered.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on August 12, 2017, 01:54:24 AM
"My job is collecting people for Valhalla, not fighting crazy cultists!" Mindy insisted. "Besides, if you aren't willing to go fight, why should I?" She knew August was probably just scared and confused--dying would do that--but she didn't appreciate the way he was acting. If he did anything stupid, it was on Mindy.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

"You think that just because I disagreed with Ingrid that means I love the gods? I died to try and save innocent mortal people who my sister is going to slaughter!" August stood as well, eyes narrowed. "I didn't do anything in the name of the gods, I died because my sister is a lunatic extremist who's going to maim and murder as she pleases and she's going to get away with it, too, because you and your half-godly cheer squad refuse to do anything about it!"

(...Looks like we've met a standstill. And with that I'll try and speed things along!)

With that, August left the table, glaring at the ground in front of him. Kelsey sat in silence for a short while before he spoke up.

"Ah, Mindy, I'm terribly sorry about that." He bit his lip and drummed his fingers against the table.

"Yeah..." Kelsey gave a small smile back. "Well, ah, I suppose that, ehm, you don't have ta stay here any longer than ya want after that fiasco - That is that, eh, you can head back to, ah, where ya were, if, ah, ya don't want to sit wit' us any longer." Ah, there were his horrible communication skills coming back - After all those 5 or 6 minutes of somewhat unawkward conversation he was starting to wonder where they'd gone off to.

(Sweet!)

The dinner then was quiet, as was the afterwards activities and the following night. As was the day after that, up until dinner came again and Kelsey found himself very nervously hustling over to where the Valykries were sitting, seeking out Mindy. Head hung low and eyes more tired-looking than usual, he seemed to be very worried about something.

Mindy caught sight of Kelesy and waved, then frowned when she saw the look on his face.

Post by: GreyCaboose on October 06, 2017, 12:44:17 PM
Kelsey actually winced when he noticed Mindy making a sudden motion, but hastily shook his head and made his way to her, leaning over due to his height to whisper.
"W-We need ta talk, Mindy. I've had a wee bit of a revelation, if ya will."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 06, 2017, 01:41:59 PM
Mindy narrowed her eyes in concern and nodded. She excused herself from the other Valkyries and stood to talk to Kelsey.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 06, 2017, 01:47:00 PM
Kelsey's hands shook as he stammered worriedly, so he shoved his hands into his pockets before stopping in an area he deemed safe.

"I-I dunno if you know, considerin' we haven' been as acquainted as I am with others, b-but I don't really dream too often, y'know? Well, las' night, after the...August incident." He paused. "I dreamed. B-But it wasn't just any old dream! It felt like s-some sort of vision, l-like a sign or somethin'." Finding it hard to breathe, he paused yet again to cough. "I-I-" Cough. "I think it's -" Cough cough. "It's left a bad taste in my mouth. I think people really are tryna fight the gods, an' I think they've already gotten started." Another cough.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 06, 2017, 02:42:35 PM
Mindy frowned. "Didn't we know that? Or didn't you believe August?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 06, 2017, 11:09:37 PM
"I mean, yeah, but not, not like, not like a 'this is something to kick up too much dust about' thing! I thought things were more mellow than what August was sayin', y'understand?" Kelsey shivered. "I thought that he was jus' paranoid 'bout the scrap he 'ad with his sister, b-but I seem ta stand wildly corrected." He sighed.
"I-In the dream I was lookin' through the eyes of someone - And don't ask why o-or how, because I dont know, but I think it was my mother. Idunn. A-And I - She - was trapped somewhere with this enormous grey-skinned fat thing sittin' in front of her tauntin' her in some far-off language I couldn't understand. A-and there was this pulsing from behind the walls all around like some kind of demonic heartbeat or somethin', and it all smelled o' rottin' meat. N-Now, I'm sure people would say it's 'Just a nightmare' but trust me, dreams have meanings. Especially when I never dream. And this was about my mother. One of the gods. Being trapped." He shivered again. "I-I've become very much more concerned about everything August spouted las' evening."

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 07, 2017, 12:27:28 AM
"No, I know about dreams." Mindy shoved her hands in her pockets and furrowed her eyebrows. "It's like I said last night; I'm not the one to talk to."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 07, 2017, 02:48:07 AM
Kelsey shook his head.
"But I think you are - I-I'm not the sort of person who'd be good with anythin' like that but I feel like now I have to, b-but I asked around and trust me, no one cares about this whole thing in the slightest. Y-You're the other one that August wanted to go stop his sister or whatever, a-and if I went alone, I-I-" He paused again and took another shaky breath. "The las' time I went to Midgard was 1975, an' that was just one night! I-I died in 1917, it's been 100 years since then, I'm going to go help my mum but I-I need help from someone from right now! You're from the 2017, you can help me!"

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 07, 2017, 11:20:27 AM
Kelsey's expression was filled with gratitude. "Oh, thank you, thank you." He stammered, putting his hands together as if he were praying. "Thank you so much, may you have a thousand blessings, I can't express how glad I am you're willin' ta help." He shook his head. "I-I know it's sudden an' all, but this does feel important ta me. I consider my mum very fondly and the idea of somethin' happenin' ta her..." He shivered. "After we figure out what's goin' on down there, I promise I won't bother ya ever again." He smiled shakily. "Now, have you seen August about? I've the requirement ta ask him about anything he may know about these plots."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 07, 2017, 11:51:22 AM
"I haven't, but he should be around here." Mindy stood on tiptoes and looked around the hall.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 07, 2017, 11:53:06 AM
Sure enough, August was eventually visible to the duo. Kelsey seemed relieved. "I'll go ask 'im 'bout the details an' such. You think I should tell him what I'm plannin' on doin' or keep it vague?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 07, 2017, 12:37:19 PM
Mindy pursed her lips. "Up to you. It would probably make him feel better to know, though."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 07, 2017, 01:11:15 PM
"Probably." Kelsey agreed. Making his way over to August (dodging several people and uttering multiple apologies as he passed everyone), he nervously cleared his throat, causing the tall brunette to whip around to face him and Mindy.

"Oh." August sneered. "It's the cheer squad recruit and the has-been she's probably keeping around for her 'Assisting the Elderly' badge.

Kelsey frowned. Clearly this kid wasn't feeling much better since yesterday.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 09, 2017, 05:12:19 AM
(Whoops I left things at a bad spot lemme add to that!)

Kelsey shook his head. "I-Uh, okay, listen. I'm sorry that I, er, offended you? Yesterday?"

August raised a brow and gave an unimpressed look.

"Point is, I was, um, Mindy and I are, uh, planning on going to Midgard, to, investigate all that."

"What?" August seemed disbelieving, so Kelsey shuddered and retold the vision he'd had.

Silence.

"Oh. Oh, my gods, finally - This is great, you're actually going to stop her?"

"I'm going to save my mum, moreso, but yeah, I suppose? If she's there. At the very least saving my mum and figuring out what's going on, but..." Kelsey shrugged nervously. "What we need ta know is where ta go. Do ya know by any chance where they'd be keepin' a goddess if they got one?"

August shook his head.

"Ingrid never told me that much. The most of what I ever heard from her was the propaganda she'd try giving me and maybe various locations to meetings she'd invite me to - I never went. B-But what I do know right now is that she's supposed to be meeting someone in, ah..." He hesitated. "Medley Centre. It's this abandoned mall, I think, in Rochester."

"Rochester?" Kelsey seemed confused. "Where on Earth might there be?"

"New York?"

"New York City?"

"No, just...Like, the state. Of New York."

"New York is a state now? Thought it was a city."

"No, it is, just -" August groaned. "It's both."

"A city state?"

"No!"

"I'm so confused." Kelsey turned to Mindy with a worried expression. "What's he talkin' about?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 09, 2017, 06:19:28 AM
Mindy resisted a smile. This is what Kelsey was worried about? "New York City is a city in New York state," she told him. "Rochester's another city in New York state. And it seems like as good a starting place as any."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 09, 2017, 02:25:42 PM
"Ah." Kelsey seemed embarrassed. "Thank ya dearly for specifyin', Mindy. Well, ah, now that that's, ah, clarified...Is that it?"

"That's all I know." August admitted. "She inherited the ability to manipulate fire from our father, though - So be careful if she attacks you."

"New York and fire. Got it. Nothin' else?"

August thought for a moment.

"Oh, uh - She's not a natural redhead." He added. "She died her hair to be more thematic and punk rock."

"Is that important?"

"I dunno, she gets all defensive about it, so maybe."

"Okay?" Kelsey nodded. "That's it, right?"

"Yep."

Kelsey nodded again.

"Okay - So, that's settled, then! I'm plannin' on leavin' at 3 AM tomorrow mornin'. Things are quietest 'round then. Good for sneakin' out. Mindy, will ya accompany me out or meet me at Midgard?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 09, 2017, 02:42:05 PM
"I'll meet you in Midgard," Mindy said decisively. If Kelsey got caught sneaking out, she didn't want to be with him.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 10, 2017, 03:31:27 AM
"Alright." Kelsey nodded. "We'll meet at Midgard, then, at 3 AM - Should we arrange to meet in the Rochester City or would it be better for us to meet elsewhere?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

"Yeah, and last time I did this I wasn't even headed to America." He sighed. "Gods, this is difficult."

The Australian girl sitting next to August turned. "Looking for easy escape routes to the states?" She asked. "Floor 39 has a good one leading to Jersey. Just knock on the seventh door to the left and tell Berkeley that you're a friend of Misty's. You'll end up in Trenton."

"Trenton...How's that sound?" Kelsey looked at Mindy inquisitively.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 10, 2017, 05:34:13 AM
"Okay," Mindy agreed. "Trenton."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 10, 2017, 06:25:14 AM
"Okay!" Kelsey seemed a bit more sure. "Trenton it is! At 3 AM, don't forget. We meet at Trenton - Wait, where specifically in the city would I end up?"

"Behind the Wendy's on North Olden." The Aussie girl explained.

"We meet behind the Wendy's at 3 AM!"

The Aussie girl gave a thumbs-up before returning to her previous conversation.

So it was decided.

The sky was cloudy over Brooklyn House, the day quiet inside the house and out - That is, until a firm and hasty knocking was heard from the entrance.

"Open the door - This is an urgent emergency and I need to be let inside now!" A voice was heard from outside the mansion, sounding very hurried as the knocking grew quicker.

(This isn't as long or detailed as the previous introductions, but I hope we can still work with it!)

Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 11, 2017, 06:54:47 AM
[Doesn't matter to me haha]

Seb more felt the knocking before he heard it. He looked around to see if anyone else was around to answer the door, but it seemed he'd have to. With a few grumbles he got up from his seat by the pool, where he'd been playing with Philip. He meandered out to the front hall and checked the door through the peephole before he opened it, an eyebrow cocked in questioning.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 11, 2017, 07:00:42 AM
A muscular young woman stood panting for breath before shoving her way past Sebastian to enter, pushing some greasy strands of long black hair behind her ear.

"Bad security - No questioning as to who I was or anything." The stranger commented, still breathing as if she'd ran a marathon. "Close the door! And get someone guarding it - Please tell me you have better procedures around the areas where you keep your knowledge. This is not what I was expecting from the Twenty-First Nome at all. Disappointing." Her last words were more mumbled to herself as she attempted to tighten the bun in her hair without a mirror. "Who are you? Are you in charge here?" She demanded, eyes narrowing as she stared at Sebastian. Clearly this woman was very much in a hurry.

Seb stared at her, his brows furrowing as he tried to follow along with what she was saying. "Uh...no, no I'm not in charge. Who are you, exactly?" he asked, frowning at her.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 12, 2017, 09:43:49 AM
(Oh no it's okay!! I understand!)

She stranger 'hmph'ed. "At least you don't give your identity to strangers. Hypocritically, I'll answer your question so that you know I'm serious here. My name is Yuudai Umezu. My friends call me Yuu. Now, please answer my first question and tell me who you are, if you are not the one in charge."

Seb was still wary of this person, whoever it was. Yuudai? He eyed her cautiously and frowned. "What are you doing here?" he asked, his eyes narrowing slightly.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 14, 2017, 08:13:00 AM
"I'm here to warn you that you, and all in this Nome, need to be on guard - A follower of Kek is planning intrusion and theft of the artifacts held in here." Yuudai explained.

"Kek?" A younger magician who was passing through the room resisted a giggle.

"This is no laughing matter. His name is Jean-Luc Delacroix, he's with some kind of cult and he's heading this way now!" Yuudai insisted. "I know that this is sudden, but you need to get people guarding the doors and rooms right now!"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 14, 2017, 09:10:56 AM
"How do you know this? Why should we trust you?" Seb questioned, his stance unrelenting. He'd normally be more friendly, but having someone barge in ranting and raving about an attack put him on edge.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 14, 2017, 09:25:09 AM
Yuudai seemed almost intensely offended at the very questioning, but tried to regain her composure. Clearly her behavior wasn't helping her case. Forcing calmness, she started over.

"I'm from the Two Hundred Twenty-First Nome in Tokyo, Japan. Three months ago, I left to come here to study the path of the gods - The lengthy amount of time is due to other stops in areas I deemed safe to meet with acquaintances and other magicians in places like South Korea, India, Iraq, Greece, France, you get the picture. During my stay in France I met Jean-Luc Delacroix, who, after a few days of pleasant communication, found out that I was headed to Brooklyn and tried to...Convert me?" She seemed unsure of her wording. "-To this cult he'd told me about that he was part of. Admittedly I was curious due to his description of it, but as we continued contact it was clear that his intentions and the cult itself was nothing but sinister and I found I wanted nothing to do with it. After he informed me of his mission to steal something unspecified from this Nome for some ritual for his cult, I cut my time in France short and tried sneaking out of the country to get here as fast as possible before he could. I wanted to warn you. It was two days ago I discovered that he was in the country as well, and here I am now. My headstart I had has been cut short - If I have made it in now, he will likely try to enter in the next hour or two. That's why I'm in such a rush - You need to up your security measures and make sure he can't get in."

Seb continued to eye her relatively suspiciously before he finally relented with a nod. At that, the other magicians that had started to gather around went off to reinforce Brooklyn House's defenses, which included retrieving Philip in his shabti form to use when needed. "I doubt whoever this is will be able to get in, but we'll follow your advice for now. I'm afraid the people in charge here aren't available at the moment."
[cuz like. it's been years since I've read the Kane Chronicles and honestly I don't wanna really bring in actual book characters if ya feel. do what you want if you want to have them there, though.]

Post by: GreyCaboose on October 17, 2017, 12:18:16 PM
(That's a good way to go! I didn't want to introduce the book characters, either, so this is good!)

Yuudai seemed incredibly relieved to be finally listened to.
"Thank you," She responded, her body not relaxing. "I won't apologize for my sudden entrance since this is a serious matter, but I am grateful that you believed me. Now, since I have asked and gotten no answers, who are you? I would like to know your identity and, if possible, Godly path - It's not a personal thing. I just need to know if I can really trust you. One would be more hesitant about divulging information to a follower of Kek or Set."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 17, 2017, 01:09:00 PM
"Sebastian, or Seb. I'm following the path of Sobek," he explained to her as he watched the others go about the house. "Animals and water magic," he explained. To emphasize, he activated a few other shabti he had on his person, which took the form of several different animals - jackals, ibises, nothing too horribly dangerous yet but could still be useful when needed. He wanted to avoid utilizing larger animals as long as he could, and hoped this was all just some crazy hoax and none of these things would actually be necessary.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 17, 2017, 02:02:33 PM
Yuudai made a noise of approval. "Good. Useful. I know what Sobek is the God of, though - No need for explanation. Animals and water. That should be very useful should any sort of trouble occur - Which it probably will." Her speech was very stilted and she seemed to talk more as if she were speaking to herself than to others. "I wish that my arrival here could be under better circumstances. I was hoping to arrive here for educational purposes, to study your Nome's path further. The others here, are they skilled in their craft?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 17, 2017, 02:11:44 PM
Seb just raised an eyebrow at her. "We're all students," he said with a noncommittal shrug. "But, yes, I'd say most of us are pretty good at what we do. It's different from the other Nome's, though, in a lot of ways - at least as far as my understanding of them goes. Which I'm sure you'll point out that you already knew," he added.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 17, 2017, 02:22:15 PM
Yuudai nodded. "Observant. Good that you picked up on my knowledge. Saves many awkward corrections. It's good that you are experienced. The level of experience that Jean-Luc has is unknown to me, but for safety and peace of mind it's good to be prepared." She stopped as if trying to remember something, but seemed to shrug it off. "Good to be prepared. Do you have an archive for your knowledge and artifacts?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 17, 2017, 02:30:41 PM
Seb's defenses went back up, and his eyes narrowed slightly at Yuudai. "Why?" he asked, uncertain of how much to trust this stranger.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 17, 2017, 02:40:48 PM
"It would be good to ensure the security measures are more condensed and heavy in the area where your valuable knowledge is." Yuudai narrowed her eyes, seeming offended at the notion that she could mean anything less than good. "To leave the area most targeted defenseless is a foolish decision. Why did you think I was asking?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 17, 2017, 05:23:03 PM
"Those of us here are capable of keeping Brooklyn House safe, we've done it before," Seb told her, having no intention of letting her see anything like that until she was cleared to train with them, which wasn't his job. He didn't bother answering her question.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 17, 2017, 10:52:27 PM
Yuudai frowned at the unsatisfactory response. "You did not answer my question, Sebastian." She put an emphasis on his name. "Is there an archive and is it properly guarded?"

"It's fine, it's fine," Sebastian waved her off as he went to go double check some of the other reinforcements at the doors.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 23, 2017, 12:26:12 PM
(Oh, no, it's okay! I'll see what I can do to finish this up quick.)

As if on cue, a loud clatter sounded from the library (or the 'archive', as Yuudai would put it). Yuudai's eyes widened before she flashed Sebastian a very bitter 'I knew I was right' look and turning on her heel to chase after the sound.

"It is not fine, it seems!" She shouted, seeming to be very insistent on getting the last word. As she turned a corner to find the library, one could faintly hear her repeating 'It is not fine' to herself frantically.

The doors to the library were wide open, and two young magicians lay on the floor in front of the door, appearing dead until one noticed their chests rising and falling. Someone had put them to sleep.

Without a word or second glance to the fallen magicians, Yuudai turned again and yelled down the hall. "Someone got into the archives, Sebastian!" The amount of spinning and changing direction she was doing could give anyone whiplash. Without waiting for anyone to follow, she rushed down the stairs, muttering "Foolish, unprotected, defenseless, would not listen..." under her breath.

The library, finally reached after a long three-stair-flight run, was trashed. Scrolls and artifacts were carelessly removed from their proper places and were thrown around the room as if some storm had hit the room.

Sebastian followed Yuudai as best he could, trying not to let his annoyance be too apparent. He paused briefly as he came across his friends sprawled across the floor, but finding the person that had broken in was the main priority. Who knows what they'd taken. Reluctantly, he tore after Yuudai again to the library and his eyes went wide. With everything trashed like this, clearly they'd been looking for something specific.

Yuudai grimaced at the wreckage. "Should have believed me the first time, Sebastian - Wait." She stopped. "Wait." She said again.

The sound of footsteps could be heard faintly growing nearer.

"I hear steps." She lowered her voice.

The volume of the footsteps grew louder. From the shadows, a gaunt pale man with long silky hair emerged.

"Oh, I should've guessed I would've been followed." He stretched a limp smile across his face, a heavy French accent lacing his words. "'Ello, children."

(School's been hectic)

Sebastian looked at the guy, eyebrow lifted slightly in dismay. He looked incredibly spooky, which is something Sebastian was not exactly down to deal with.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 09, 2017, 03:00:36 PM
(I understand!)

The man looked over Sebastian and Yuudai as if he were looking over show ponies or dogs, and made a displeased noise.

"Ah, I should've known they would send the dirt after me." His smile faded. "Unfortunately for you two, I 'ave already found what I was looking for."

"How did you get into this place?" Yuudai demanded. "I arrived first, and saw no one after!"

"One should always check their shadows - Such blatant 'iding spaces." The man shrugged.

"Jean-Luc Delacroix, you will return what you have stolen or I will -"

"Do what? 'Eal me?" The Frenchman laughed at his joke. "I do not fear children, children. Though I'd advise you to fear me. Fear all of us. For if you do not embrace our philosophy, you are against it. And therefore, you will be removed."

His eyes lazily crawled from Yuudai to Sebastian.

"'Ow does that sound, little boy? Would you like to 'ave a safe 'ome when our war is unveiled?" He spoke as if he were offering candy to a young child.

Yuudai went tense, narrowing her eyes at Sebastian and shaking her head.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 09, 2017, 03:22:01 PM
Sebastian studied the man for a moment, contemplating his answer. "You've brought chaos in your wake, disrupted Ma'at. Any side fighting to restore it is the side I'll stay on," he said, lifting his wand slightly. He hoped Sobek would be agreeable should it come to calling on him today.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 12:31:56 AM
Yuudai seemed surprised at the answer, raising a brow.

Jean-Luc shrugged, smile tapering itself back onto his face. "My boy, sometimes to achieve better order you must first bring chaos to eradicate the old. I am disappointed in your response. I will not fight you now - More important things are 'appening. 'Ave fun when your world collapses, though!" And with a flourish, he opened his knapsack beside him, removing two scrolls he'd taken from the library. He held them out almost playfully, as if he wanted to goad the two magicians into attacking, as he removed a staff (that, considering the length of it, should not have been able to fit in that little knapsack without some kind of enchantment) and tore off a necklace with a small, obelisk shaped charm. Whispering a few words, a large portal began to form behind him.

Yuudai's eyes widened as she drew her staff - A walking stick she kept attached to her backpack. However, Jean-Luc smiled and backed into the portal before she could cast any sort of spell. As he passed into it entirely, the portal snapped shut and darkness fell over the library again, shadows looming over the two magicians.
Yuudai turned again to face Sebastian. "Now do you understand why I was worried?" She asked hastily.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 10, 2017, 01:01:03 AM
Sebastian stared at Yuudai and then just shook his head and turned away, going to go help the other magicians.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 01:22:27 AM
Yuudai's expression filled with rage as she followed after Sebastian.

"Hey - you saw just as well as I that that man needs to be stopped! You saw. You did! And that lunatic now has stolen items from your archives, and you need to try and get them back!" She gripped her staff in hand tightly. "You can't be so foolish that you would ignore this - What good magician would not immediately chase after such a thief?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 10, 2017, 01:34:58 AM
"One that's worried about their friends," Sebastian narrowed his eyes at her. "Or would you not know what that's like?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 02:07:15 AM
Yuudai seemed taken aback by that comment, but crossed her arms and huffed.
"I am concerned about everyone." She responded. "I happen to recognize that when items are stolen by a deranged cultist with war in mind, it is best to launch an immediate chase to take back the items and catch the cultist. Then disaster is prevented, and everyone is safe." She stopped. "Including friends. Everyone is safe, including the friends you're worried about. You should worry about everyone. This is a bigger problem than just your friends."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 10, 2017, 02:31:32 AM
"Then you go chase him, I didn't ask to be dragged into this!" Sebastian exclaimed, shaking his head at her. He started digging through his pockets to find some healing charms.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 04:43:40 AM
Yuudai sneered at Sebastian, clearly frustrated, before her expression softened. "What are you looking for?" She asked, eyes still narrowed.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 10, 2017, 07:10:42 AM
Sebastian ignored her, reaching into the pockets of his pants. "The healing charms," he muttered, patting down his pockets and sides of his pants.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 07:56:28 AM
"I am a healer." Yuudai pointed out. "If you are looking for assistance in healing I can offer my skills."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 10, 2017, 08:17:31 AM
Sebastian opened his mouth, fully planning to say no, but then he hesitated and straightened his shoulders. "I thought you wanted to go after him?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on November 10, 2017, 09:02:05 AM
"There is no point in going alone." Yuudai explained. "Trying to face against a follower of Kek by one's lonesome is suicide." She stopped. "Suicide." She continued. "I am not foolish, and therefore I would not follow Jean-Luc alone. I am not foolish. That is why I said 'we' rather than 'I'. I have come to learn that traveling alone at all is dangerous anyways. Besides, I am not skilled in combat. I am naturally a healer." She shrugged. "Do you want me to assist you in healing or not?"

(I'm very sorry that I pressured you into things when you had no time. However, your characters are both just as important as the others and I feel like leaving them out until you can jump back in wouldn't make sense with my plans for the rest of the RP. I wish you luck during your busy holidays, and I can assure you i understand why you feel stressed. I'm stressed too, with school work and family problems and relationship troubles and health issues, and the last thing i want to do is put stress on another person. So, when you're finally free from the crushing weight of holidays and school [not meant to be sarcastic, I'm being genuine, I just know it's hard to express through text], I'd be very grateful if you'd let us know. I'd personally prefer to start together rather than apart, and I understand that if no one else wants to do that, I have already performed shoddily and used a confusing and strenuous system to set up the roleplay, and feel that if I've caused too much stress and confusion, tapestry shouldn't go on. But i love this RP dearly and have become very invested in my characters and the future of the rp, so i hope you all understand and agree that for now a break we can all agree on and go through willingly together would be for the best. When everyone is ready to jump back in together, that is when I will start. I hope this RP can thrive free from stress so that we can all develop our characters and their story together! So, until we all are free once again, huzzah! And again, apologies for being stressful.)

(Well, if you don't want to continue the Egyptian prologue, I have no qualm starting the main events! Essentially, the main events start once all of the characters get to Medley Centre [which, the journey there does not have to be mapped out -
 Feel free to come up with events that could've happened in this short journey to Rochester and how your character's felt about it all! The part it would be starting from is the characters getting to Medley Centre - however, due to plot reasons, do not immediately find each other] and encounter the antagonists and each other! How would that sound? It would have the first (small) battle, as well as some real first impressions a bit of exposition!! However, ending the Egyptian prologue short, I'd also like to figure out in PMs with Kira how and why Sebastian chose to go with Yuudai! How would that sound to everyone? If that's good and I can start the main events, I will have the intro the main events out soon!!)

(Nice!!)

"How much longer should I be waiting?" The red-haired girl barked into her phone, which she had set on speaker to keep away from her face as she glanced around the mall, lingering next to a long-abandoned carousel. "Your cowboy boy-toy isn't exactly as quick as you promised he'd be, ma'am."

"He should be arriving to you soon - With a plus-one. His mission to get a conduit was successful, but he wasn't able to get any recruits." The voice from the phone promised, her voice smooth like honey.

"Fine by me." The ginger snarled, hints of a Scandinavian accent in her ragged voice. "I'm all for building the cause, but you know how I don't like some of the people you've found. That ugly Frenchman kept-"

"That ugly Frenchman is right 'ere, darling." Jean-Luc Delacroix cut the ginger woman off as he stepped out from the shadows.

The girl with the phone backed up, black and orange eyes narrowing.

"I love doing that." He laughed hollowly as the ginger girl growled.

"My point stands, Medea." She barked into the phone. "He's a creep and a child-killer and he's only the tip of the barrel when it comes to some of the others you do business with."

"Child-killer?" Jean-Luc scoffed. "You call me a killer when it's you who -"

"You do not bring him up!" The girl screeched, stomping and almost dropping her phone as she threw her arms down.

"Ingrid, calm down." Medea spoke up through the phone. "Jean-Luc is a business partner at best. You don't have to like him, or any of the others I do business with. I only ask that you tolerate him, until you've earned your place in the new pantheon with the rest of us."

Ingrid grumbled. Jean-Luc smirked.

"But, I agree with you in that perhaps he should leave some items of discussion off the table. We've all sacrificed things for the cause, and your sacrifice is not something for Jean-Luc to taunt you with."

Jean-Luc's smirk faded.

"She started i-"

"Ending this argument, I do have something else for you, Ingrid." Ingrid perked up at this, holding the phone closer to her face.

"What?"

"While Jude didn't recruit anyone, I did. After Jude and his plus one arrive, wait an extra hour or so for my brother." Medea sounded as if she were smiling over the phone. "If he doesn't show, have Jean-Luc open the portal back to the agreed point for you, him, Jude, and the other."

"Alright."

"You know what to do if there are complications."

Ingrid's expression softened, as if she were uncomfortable.

"...Alright."

"Sacrifices, Ingrid. It'll be worth it once we've built the new pantheon."

"I believe you."

Silence.

Jean-Luc leaned against a pillar.

"So when will the blonde be here again?" He asked, boredom seeping into his voice. "I tire of waiting for children to come to me."

"We're not children," Ingrid pocketed the phone. "and Jude will be here soon."

As if on cue, a blonde man with an unconscious girl slung over his shoulder emerged.

"Howdy." Jude smiled at the two. "Y'all got a spot fer me ta lay down? I've been lugging this dead weight around for longer than I'd've liked. Thank mom for the mists - Almost had a fella stop me fer questioning before he saw that this here was clearly just a sleeping bag." He raised the shoulder that Ramona was on for emphasis.

"How charming." Jean-Luc grinned.

"We openin' a portal or what, huh?" Jude grinned back at the Frenchman good-naturedly. "We really need a bed for this lady. And maybe a medic. She woke up about 20 minutes into the trip so I forced the rest of the sleepin' pills into her mouth ta be safe for the rest of the walk."

Ingrid and Jean-Luc stared.

"...I'm not even going to begin to explain how seriously wrong your thought process must be." Ingrid responded. Jude shrugged, smile still present. "But no, we still need to wait for a straggler. Some guy that 'Dea must've picked up during her stint in the Roman bathhouses."

Jude frowned, both at the nickname for his girlfriend and for the term 'Roman bathhouses'.

Ingrid shrugged. "I don't make the rules."

~

((To make things easier for you guys to jump in, here's Yuudai and Kelsey's POVs as they near the mall with their respective accomplices!))

Yuudai approached the mall with a cold stare. What a dump.
"Jean-Luc is definitely inside." She explained to the boy next to her as she stood in the parking lot, her staff being used as a walking stick. "I can sense the chaos of a follower of Kek. We must figure out a plan. Without a plan we could walk into a massacre. Jean-Luc is powerful and not alone. He wouldn't be alone here. Not alone. Not here. We should figure out where to enter by. He would not be near the front. But perhaps the back would be too obvious."
For someone who was trying to be sneaky and clever, Yuudai was not whispering. After the trek from the Brooklyn House to this mall, Yuudai was seemingly not as worn out as one would expect.
"Do you have any offers to assist me, Sebastian? Or should I come up with the plan?" She narrowed her eyes.

~

In the short time that Kelsey had spent back on Midgard with Mindy, he had been amazed by numerous things he'd spotted in the cities. The last time he was in the realm of the living was on Halloween night, in Dublin, in the late 1970s. Things definitely seemed different. What was a 'Dennys', and why was it so compelling to him? Who was McDonald, and why were his estates so prevalent and colorful? Who was the Burger King? Did he have relation to the Dairy Queen? Why was everything so expensive?? Five dollars?? Who has that kind of money just lying around??? Kelsey was overwhelmed by all the life and buzz of the cities, it was almost more overwhelming to stand to the side of one of the most dead things Kelsey had ever seen - An abandoned mall. It was large, dilapidated, sad, and abandoned. Out of its time. Kelsey could almost relate to it. Glancing over towards Mindy, he sighed shakingly.
"So this is the place August said his sister was meetin' someone at." Kelsey observed, trying to hide his shaking hands. "Well, ah - You want to go in first?"

((Okay, so to make things easier - Here's what I was imagining!!

SETTING: It's a slightly chilly windy night (very early morning, to be precise),
and I imagine that Yuudai and Sebastian are in the front parking lot of the mall;
Kelsey and Mindy are to the side;
Wesley, Owen, and Julia would be to the other side;
and Francis could enter through the back of the mall to meet up with Ingrid and Jean-Luc and Jude [the bad guys!!] - But before this trio of baddies can take Francis, the Egyptians, Greeks, and Norse enter, with Yuudai bent on stopping Jean-Luc, Kelsey bent on finding August's sister to try and save his mom, and the Greeks showing up to stop Jude and get Ramona back!! If you all still want to do a little interaction before you have your groups enter the malls, that's fine, I'm all for interaction!!
Would anyone be okay with having their characters get knocked out during a battle? If not, that's fine! I'm just looking to give someone a crazy dream [originally Wes, but since that wasn't discussed I don't know if that's still okay;;]
That being said, here we go!! Hope this is okay!!))

(I’d be fine with either of my characters being knocked out)

“Sure. You nervous?” Mindy asked, trying to sound casual to cover up her own nerves. She pushed open the side door and stepped into the mall, glancing around for immediate danger before looking back to Kelsey.

(I lowkey forgot Owen existed so I’m gonna go reread the Greek intro to remember how I wrote him; I’ll have a response up before bed tonight)

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on December 24, 2017, 05:39:30 PM
(Update: oh man I forgot what a dysfunctional group the Greek trio wound up being XD Fun fun)

Owen shivered slightly in the morning air; he’d forgot to bring a jacket along. Despite the chill, though, he was practically tingling with anticipation. A real quest! Maybe a real fight!
The old mall loomed a little spookily in the dim light. Sweet. Owen barged in with hardly a glance at the other two—they’d probably ignore him anyway, or yell at him. His fingers rested inches away from the pommel of his sword, ready to jump at the first thing that moved.

(I’m going to bed now but I’m psyched to finally get the ball rolling!)

“Sure. You nervous?” Mindy asked, trying to sound casual to cover up her own nerves. She pushed open the side door and stepped into the mall, glancing around for immediate danger before looking back to Kelsey.

"A wee bit, perhaps." Kelsey nodded shakingly. "Never had the best luck when I was here on Midgard before. Kind of a curse. I've come ta be quite averse to going in first to things, since I don't want to cause trouble." He looked at Mindy after she looked back at him. "Does it seem safe?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Post by: GreyCaboose on December 25, 2017, 06:40:19 AM
Kelsey nodded to say 'thanks for checking' and entered the mall after Mindy. "My lord, this place looks like somewhere that children back in my town would dare eachother to go into fer kicks n' giggles." He lowered his voice to a whisper. "What was this 'afore it got shut down?"

Seb eyed her. Mild irritation was a constant mood now, it seemed. "There any side doors?" he asked, turning his gaze onto the building.

Julia stalled. Was Owen insane?! There could be anything in there, monsters, other people, all horrifying things. "Wait!" She jogged after him quickly. She just hoped her magic could be enough, she really didn't want to use her weapons or anything like that this early. They'd barely left the camp.

“A mall,” Mindy told him. With one hand in her pocket, she twisted a hairband around her fingers. “Basically a bunch of stores in one building. And we should probably be quiet.” She didn’t look back at Kelsey, instead peering around the darkness, waiting for something to jump at them.

Owen stopped and turned back to Julia. “For what?” They’d have to go in sooner or later, wouldn’t they?

Seb eyed her. Mild irritation was a constant mood now, it seemed. "There any side doors?" he asked, turning his gaze onto the building.

"Of course there are side doors." Yuudai responded. "A place this large will always have side doors. But they probably knew that, too. We can't take the chance. What if we are spotted? It would ruin our advantage. We can't take the chance." She shook her head and then raised a hand to her chin as if she were concentrating hard. "There are two second-story entrances from the stairs next to the front doors. What is the likelihood of second-story entrances being guarded?"

“A mall,” Mindy told him. With one hand in her pocket, she twisted a hairband around her fingers. “Basically a bunch of stores in one building. And we should probably be quiet.” She didn’t look back at Kelsey, instead peering around the darkness, waiting for something to jump at them.

"Ah, I see." Kelsey whispered, reaching behind him to grab his gun. Perhaps an old WW1 rifle wouldnt be as useful as a more modern creation, but having it at the ready made Kelsey feel a bit more at ease. "This place is incredibly unnerving." The soldier whispered, mostly to himself. "Too many shadows and places to hide. How will we ever find anything? Or anyone?"

(Wes is still good for the crazy dream, and if you need to knock Francis unconscious, feel free.)

"We should probably make sure we ain't gonna get killed," Wes said, surveying the mall. It seemed quiet, but that was exactly why he didn't trust it.

Francis took another look at the address written on the paper. Well, he was in the right place. What exactly he was looking for, he didn't know, but Medea's words and the promise of family spurred him forward.

"You want to climb up," Seb stated, staring up at the building. "Sure, sure, why not," he shrugged and held his hands up. At this point he was relatively apathetic to most things that came out of Yuudai's mouth.

Julia pointed at Wes. "Yes, exactly," she hissed to Owen, but then took a moment to look around and evaluate where they were. It felt off. Maybe that was just the quiet, or her normal paranoia talking. Still, she usually was pretty intuitive.

Owen shrugged. “How’re we gonna find that out without going in?” He couldn’t deny he was on edge, but creeping around outside wouldn’t exactly make it safer.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on December 26, 2017, 09:29:22 AM
 "Climb up stairs, you dumb American." Yuudai spat, raising her arm to point at the twin set of stairs surrounding the front entrance of the mall and leading to two sets of second-story entrances. "The stairs will be old and fragile, but that probably means there is less chance of the entrances being guarded, then."

~

Meanwhile, Jean-Luc straightened his posture. "I sense something." He whispered.

"Like a disturbance in the force?" Jude smirked, laughing to himself. Jean-Luc narrowed his eyes.

"I think someone is here." He explained, prompting Ingrid to raise a brow behind her sunglasses.

"You think it could be the Roman kid?" Ingrid asked. "Should we send some kind of signal to have him find us easier?"

As if on cue, Jude stumbled and knocked over a trash can with a loud clatter.

"Darn it." He mumbled, running his side where he collided. "Sorry."

"Well, if anyone's actually here they'll have heard that." Ingrid snarled. "So let's hope it's just the Roman kid."

~

Kelsey looked up.
"I heard a clatter." He whispered, pointing his gun in the direction he heard it from. "People are here."

~

Yuudai frowned as she heard something clatter behind the walls of the mall.
"I am going inside. You will follow. We have wasted enough time." She swung her walking stick and held it like a staff as she rushed towards the stairs, not waiting for Sebastian to follow.

(Apparently I skipped Mindy’s weapon when I typed up her card but I found the handwritten version and I’d given her a staff, does that work?)

“I heard,” Mindy agreed, taking a few steps to stand closer to Kelsey. If she was honest with herself, his gun made her feel safer than her own weapon did. Why didn’t she get a gun?

Julia heard the clatter and jumped a bit. "See?" She looked over at Owen with her eyebrow raised. "Someone's in there."

"That's what I meant," Seb snapped, but she was already gone. "And I'm Native," he mumbled to himself before he squared his shoulders and followed her.

“Aren’t we looking for someone?” Owen had never quite understood this kind of hesitation. “Maybe it’s Ramona. Or whatever made her leave.”

(That's fine - Staffs are cool!)

Kelsey's hands shook as he held the gun timidly, making cautious steps in the direction of the noise.
"Do you think it's who we're lookin' for?" The Irishman whispered, head lowered and posture tense. "I don't know if I want to get caught pointin' my rifle at a police officer."

"That's what I meant," Seb snapped, but she was already gone. "And I'm Native," he mumbled to himself before he squared his shoulders and followed her.

With only some caution as she made her way up the stairs, she motioned for Seb to use the opposite stairs, which looked particularly more dilapidated than the ones she'd used.
"Ready your wand for when we enter." She commanded, eyes narrow in a judgemental glare.

~

As Jude pushed the trash can back up, Ingrid glanced at the ashes from the can that had been spilled.
"People used the trash in the can to make fires." She observed. "If I light it, whoever's here will be able to see the light and will come."
"What if it ain't the guy yer waitin' for?" Jude frowned. "I don't know how many cops we can handle. Or homeless folks."
"If there are complications, I have orders to kill without discretion." Ingrid recited, sounding disappointed in herself as she spoke.
"Oh." Jude seemed disgusted.
"Orders from Medea."
"Oh." Jude seemed much less disgusted.

The garbage in the can was quickly lit on fire, creating a small blaze. Jean-Luc cast a disapproving look at the light and backed away into shadows, while Jude took the opportunity to warm himself.

~

Kelsey's eyes widened at the sight of sudden light ahead of him. In fear, he backed up with a slight high-pitched squeak.

Mindy jumped at Kelsey’s squeak and accidently snapped the hair tie across the back of her hand. She took her hands out of her pockets and held one in the other to stop them from shaking. “You think we should check that out?” she murmured to Kelsey, trying to ignore how scared they both were.

Seb looked at the other set of stairs and his face immediately went taut with annoyance. "The decrepit ones? Yeah, that's safe, no problem!" He said, and crossed his arms. He was not going to break his neck because of what she told him to do. "I'm following you," he stated and started climbing up the same steps after Yuudai, getting his wand ready.

"No, it's not Ramona. At least...well, it might be?" Julia wasn't sure now. "We're gonna go in, but carefully," she continued with a nod, as if agreeing with herself.

(All right lovebugs, where were we?)

Francis jumped when he heard a loud crashing noise coming from inside the mall. Well, he was probably in the right place, he figured. He drew his gladius with a careful, slow movement and approached the back door. To Francis' surprise, it was unlocked, and so he proceeded inside, taking note of all his surroundings.

Wes nodded and drew his sword, standing behind Owen and Julia. No way he was going in first. Surviving this quest was the most important thing.

Ingrid sighed after staring at the flames for a bit. "I'm going to go check the back entrance." She decided. "Nobody uses side entrances and nobody would be stupid enough to use the front entrance, so if anyone's here, they're going in through the back."

Jean-Luc looked like he wanted to say something, but refrained and nodded silently.

Ingrid turned and headed in the direction of the back entrance, conjuring a flame in her right hand. Turning a corner, she spotted a boy with his sword drawn - A Roman sword.

"...Are you the guy Medea told to come here?" She asked hesitantly, raising her flaming hand as a threat.

Seb looked at the other set of stairs and his face immediately went taut with annoyance. "The decrepit ones? Yeah, that's safe, no problem!" He said, and crossed his arms. He was not going to break his neck because of what she told him to do. "I'm following you," he stated and started climbing up the same steps after Yuudai, getting his wand ready.

"You foolish boy." She sneered. "Do you not know how to follow orders?" Yuudai shrugged and turned around. "We will enter when I say so. Or are you going to barge in and get yourself killed?"

Francis stared at the flame in her hands a second, then locked his eyes back to the girl's face. "Who are you?" he asked instead.

"A friend of Medea's." Ingrid frowned. "She couldn't be here now so she sent me and a couple other...friends," She shrugged. "-to get you to our hq safely." She dimmed the flame in her hand a bit to try and seem safer. "...Unless you're not the kid we're looking for."

"I'm not stupid, you don't have to order me around," Sebastian practically growled out. He was getting real tired of this.

Yuudai grimaced.
"I only order you around because you refuse to listen to me when I am civil." She snapped. "You cannot act as if I am unfair when you act as if I am the stupid one! I am the only one of us who seems to care about saving the world from a war!"

"I only treat people with the expectation that they'll take this seriously! If you expected me to baby you, you should've told me!" Yuudai hissed, raising her voice. "And you shouldn't have to be forced to do the right thing!"

"She didn't tell you my name or anything?" Francis frowned, gripping his gladius tighter.

"She said you were her brother. From the Roman camps. I figure she left out names because she thinks introductions and names are special or whatever." Ingrid rolled her eyes. "I guess I should tell you mine first, then, if you're so twitchy. I'm Ingrid. Jude and Jean-Luc are over by the carousel, if you follow me, we can all leave together."

Meanwhile, Jude perked up after hearing noises from outside. "I hear folks." He whispered, voice low.

Yuudai's eyes widened in shock. "Don't you dare insult me like this. You don't know anything about me!" 

"I'm Francis. Where, exactly, is Medea?" He lowered his gladius enough to not be threatening, but not so low he wouldn't be able to use it in a hurry.

"She's back at base in Alaska." Ingrid replied. "We've got a fellow who can work with portals, though. so you don't have to do much more walking. She would've been here, but there's a lot of stuff she has to take care of as the leader."

~

Jean-Luc watched silently as Jude walked around the carousel area, suspiciously glancing into the shadows.

Kelsey stood silently next to Mindy, hands shaking as he held the rifle in front of him.

"I heard someone, Jean." Jude muttered. "Can't tell from where, though..."

Kelsey gasped as Jude's footsteps got closer.

With a snap, Jude pulled a heart locket off from its chain. Clicking it open, it transformed into a cold steel Roman spatha. Sword now at ready, he stepped in front of Kelsey and Mindy.

Kelsey yelped and fired his gun, missing Jude's head in on his panic and instead hitting air. Jude brought the hilt of the sword down on Kelsey's head, causing the Irishman to yelp and fall to his knees, dropping his gun.

Ingrid looked up, hearing the sound of aa gunshot.
"Crap." She muttered. "Those two idiots must've gotten themselves into trouble or something. C'mon." Turning heel and heading back in the direction she came from.

 Yuudai stopped and looked at the entrance the two were standing in front of.
"A gunshot." She whispered, clutching her staff.

Mindy swore and stepped in front of Kelsey, holding her staff defensively across both of them. “Kelsey?” she asked, nudging him with her foot and trying to keep her voice steady. She could feel her pulse in her hands where she gripped her staff.

Seb was about to retort, but when he heard the shot his expression grew serious. "So there must be others here," he said, his voice lowering again.

Julia jumped in alarm when she heard the shot, and her hand went to her waist for her weapon. "Okay, go in quietly and stick to the shadows."

Mindy swore and stepped in front of Kelsey, holding her staff defensively across both of them. “Kelsey?” she asked, nudging him with her foot and trying to keep her voice steady. She could feel her pulse in her hands where she gripped her staff.

Kelsey groaned a bit as he rubbed his head, but quickly snapped back into reality as he grabbed his rifle off the ground and scooted back, further behind Mindy as he readied his rifle again.

Jude frowned.
"You two don't look too familiar ta me." He observed, holding his sword to be ready to attack. "Y'all came here fer the girl or are you just some real confused lovers gettin' caught by the wrong folk?"

Seb was about to retort, but when he heard the shot his expression grew serious. "So there must be others here," he said, his voice lowering again.

"Yes." Yuudai agreed. "We enter now, then."
And she swung open the door and stepped inside, staff at the ready as she scanned the area.

Francis debated for a moment, but decided to follow a Ingrid into the mall. That gunshot didn't sound good.

Seb walked in after her, wand ready and eyes alert. He kept his attention on the darkest parts of the place, but that seemed to be almost everywhere. His mind reeled as he thought of spell after spell of defensive magic.

Julia headed toward where the sounds had come from. Her fingers twisted the rings around on her hand, and she hoped the protective stones actually worked.

Francis debated for a moment, but decided to follow a Ingrid into the mall. That gunshot didn't sound good.

Ingrid made her way towards the front, immediately noticing the two magicians standing near the second floor entrance by the carousel and freezing before backing up behind a wall, extinguishing her fire with a whispered curse.

"Someone's here." She whispered to Francis.

"I could have told you that." Murmured Jean-Luc from an uncomfortably close distance. The Frenchman emerged partways from the darkness. "There's a gunman and someone else over to the other side as well. Jude is handling them, I assume. I noticed three figures to the back of the mall coming towards the front. Armed, but with swords and archaic weapons. The ones in the front are magicians."

"From Brooklyn?" Ingrid hissed. "How much trouble did you cause there?? You said you'd be in and out quietly."

"It's just two people who followed. Children. Neither look too skilled. I can handle them." Jean-Luc insisted. "You and your company should take the three to the back."

Ingrid growled lowly under her breath about making a scene and how unfair it is that she should have to handle three individuals. Jean-Luc vanished back into the darkness. The redhead readjusted her sunglasses and turned to face Francis.

"Do you know how to use that sword properly, kid?" She asked.

Mindy hesitated. “The girl?” she repeated. Could he mean Kelsey’s mom? She didn’t think someone would call a goddess “girl.”

Jude hesitated as well, raising a brow. "You ain't here for the Hecate lady?" He asked confusedly.

"Jackson." A French-accented voice piped up behind Jude, though whoever spoke was staying in the shadows. "Not to distract, but I feel it would be good to bring up that there are multiple attackers now. So maybe hurry up with these two so we can leave sooner."

"More..." Jude, like a Pokemon, snapped out of his confusion. "Oh." He narrowed his eyes at Mindy and raised his sword. "So you and the reenactor down there are jus' tryna distract me, eh?" With new energy, he brought his sword down towards Mindy's staff, clearly hoping to cause some damage.

Kelsey aimed his gun for where he'd heard the voice in the shadows, shooting again but, again, missing. Probably shouldn't have tried aiming for something he couldn't see. He stood, now incredibly confused and disoriented about the situation at hand.

Seb walked in after her, wand ready and eyes alert. He kept his attention on the darkest parts of the place, but that seemed to be almost everywhere. His mind reeled as he thought of spell after spell of defensive magic.

Jean-Luc appeared from the darkness next to Yuudai, wand raised.

"Ha-wi." He commanded, causing a dark force to push Yuudai back, causing her to crash into the carousel. The Frenchman looked at Sebastian with a glimmer of sadism in his eyes.

"Not too late to run out and home, boy." He crooned.

Yuudai cried out loudly as she hit the carousel, falling to the ground and struggling to stand. Her staff clattered on the ground next to her.

Seb's hand tightened on his wand and he looked over toward where Yuudai had been thrown. He gritted his teeth before uttering a few words, summoning a khopesh from the Duat. "Tas," he spoke aloud, directing the spell toward Jean-luc to attempt to bind him.

Seb's hand tightened on his wand and he looked over toward where Yuudai had been thrown. He gritted his teeth before uttering a few words, summoning a khopesh from the Duat. "Tas," he spoke aloud, directing the spell toward Jean-luc to attempt to bind him.

Unfazed, Jean-Luc responded rather quickly: "Sa-per" He announced, causing the spell to miss.

"You don't like to have decent conversation, do you? I was trying to show you mercy, child." He grimly responded, taking a step closer to Sebastian.

Francis resisted the instinct to snap at Ingrid for calling him "kid". "I wouldn't bring it with me if I didn't," he said slowly.

"Good." Ingrid replied. "Because I don't use those kinds of weapons. Its good one of us will. Come on."

She left the corner, motioning for Francis to follow, and made her way to the center of the hallway where the Greeks were. Lighting her hand back on fire, she scanned the shadows. If Jean-Luc was right, the three armed kids would be right here hiding.

"Be ready, kid." She told Francis before straightening her posture and making the flame grow brighter.

"Come out, cowards." She growled, raising her flaming hand. For a second, she seemed hesitant, but quickly her expression grew darker than her sunglasses. With newfound confidence, she growled. "Face me and witness the consequences of challenging a future god!" Throwing the flame so it landed a good few feet in front of her, the light from the resulting fire eliminated surrounding shadows.

"You can't come wreck my house and think I'll be cool with it," Seb said, standing his ground. He knew he'd probably have to draw on Sobek soon to use more divine words, but he didn't want to do that just yet. It'd be better to conserve that power. "N-dah," he said, but directed it toward Yuudai this time to put a spell of protection around himself and her. It was stronger than usual because of Sobek's place as a protector, but not incredibly so without a protective circle. Still, it should help with any additional attacks.

Julia froze when she saw the fire, then straightened up and narrowed her eyes at the other two, particularly the girl that had caused - thrown? - the flame. Her hand stayed trained above her dagger, but she took a breath and tried to concentrate on the Mist to create some sort of shield between her, Owen, and Wes and the other two.

“A dis—“ Mindy started to say, but cut herself off when she saw a sword coming at her. She ducked to the side and lifted her staff to knock the guy’s wrist away.

Owen jumped when the fire illuminated the shadows he’d been hiding in, but quickly recovered his wits. “Future god?” he echoed, glancing at the other two. “So you’re the bad guy, right? Think I will face you.” He yanked his sword from his scabbard and charged. Hell, even if she wasn’t the bad guy, he wasn’t about to turn down a challenge like that. Cowards?

Future god? Francis frowned and took a half step back. He was starting to think he didn't want to be involved with whatever this was. But it wouldn't hurt to check it out a little more just to make sure. He lifted his sword, ready to block whatever blow the other kid was getting ready to strike.

Wes' first instinct was to bail. He hadn't wanted to go on this stupid quest anyway, and he didn't particularly care about being a hero. At the same time, though, he didn't want Owen and Julia to get killed because of him bailing. He watched Julia as she murmured her spells or whatever, eyeing the rings on her fingers. The Hecate kids had always freaked him out.

It was stronger than usual because of Sobek's place as a protector, but not incredibly so without a protective circle. Still, it should help with any additional attacks.

Jean-Luc wheezed laughter before reaching into a nearby shadow and pulling from it a slender dagger.
"I offered you mercy, boy. Let's see where your god's protection can get you against a vessel of primordial darkness, hm?" He laughed again before raising his dagger to strike. "Pity you're not younger. If you were, at least your death could be a worthy sacrifice to Kek."

Yuudai hissed as she stood, stubbornly refusing to make any notion of gratitude to Seb for the protection. Staff in her hand, she turned as she heard noise from another direction.

“A dis—“ Mindy started to say, but cut herself off when she saw a sword coming at her. She ducked to the side and lifted her staff to knock the guy’s wrist away.

Jude let out a frustrated cry as he lost his grip of the sword - Clearly not an experienced fighter - And it fell to the ground with a clatter. Kelsey took the opportunity to hit Jude with the back end of his rifle, causing Jude to cry out and fall.
"You okay?" Kelsey asked Mindy worriedly, losing his guard to check up on his partner.
Jude took advantage of the moment of weakness and grabbed his sword again, swinging at Kelsey's leg and slashing the soldier's calf.
Kelsey cried out rather shrilly in pain - a little loud for such a nonserious injury, but still enough to get the point across.
Back on his feet again, Jude glared at Mindy with the intensity of, like, 20 suns, and proceeded to charge directly towards her.

Julia froze when she saw the fire, then straightened up and narrowed her eyes at the other two, particularly the girl that had caused - thrown? - the flame. Her hand stayed trained above her dagger, but she took a breath and tried to concentrate on the Mist to create some sort of shield between her, Owen, and Wes and the other two.

The Hecate kids had always freaked him out.

Ingrid looked at Francis. "Get the little fluffy looking kid with the sword." She told him, reigniting her hands as she stepped to the side to avoid Owen's charge. "I'll handle the other two." Flames glowing brightly, she headed rather quickly towards Wes and Julia, ready to throw fire at any given moment.

"So you're into darkness? That explains the vitamin D deficiency," Seb said and backed up, eyeing the dagger. His eyes flickered around the mall, then landed on a shop window nearby Jean-Luc. "Ha-di!" he shouted, causing the glass to shatter and shower across the room. The protection spell shielded him as he ran over toward Yuudai.

Julia backed up a couple steps toward Wes. "You a good shot?" She asked him, since it looked like this was going to be a close combat fight. Her hands stopped manipulating the mist and she unsheathed her dagger, which felt awfully not suitable for this.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 04, 2018, 10:14:26 AM
Mindy barely had time to curse before the guy was at her again, recovering his sword disappointly quickly. She jumped back and held her staff defensively in front of her, bracing it with both hands. “Who even are you?” she growled, not really expecting a response. She tried to keep herself between Kelsey and the attacker, but she didn’t exactly have control of the fight.

Owen glanced at the boy with the sword but stopped his charge, swinging his own sword instead to the redhead with the fireballs. “You said face you,” he demanded. “And I’m not fluffy.” He kept an eye on the sword kid, but it he hadn’t done anything yet and Owen didn’t get the feeling he’d attack first. Of course, Owen could beat him, but he wasn’t about to pick a fight unprovoked.

"So you're into darkness? That explains the vitamin D deficiency," Seb said and backed up, eyeing the dagger. His eyes flickered around the mall, then landed on a shop window nearby Jean-Luc. "Ha-di!" he shouted, causing the glass to shatter and shower across the room. The protection spell shielded him as he ran over toward Yuudai.

Jean-Luc hissed and attempted to shield himself with his arms as glass flew onto him.
"You...you snake!" He cried, anger filling his eyes.

Yuudai, although distracted at first, snapped back into her usual frown as Seb approached her.
"That was a risky move, blowing up a window!" She scolded. "You could've hurt yourself or someone innocent!"

Mindy barely had time to curse before the guy was at her again, recovering his sword disappointly quickly. She jumped back and held her staff defensively in front of her, bracing it with both hands. “Who even are you?” she growled, not really expecting a response. She tried to keep herself between Kelsey and the attacker, but she didn’t exactly have control of the fight.


Jude smirked, wiping sweat off his mouth.
"What you need to know is that I ain't the bad guy here." He explained slowly, holding his sword in front of him. "And I should be askin' you who you are."

Owen glanced at the boy with the sword but stopped his charge, swinging his own sword instead to the redhead with the fireballs. “You said face you,” he demanded. “And I’m not fluffy.” He kept an eye on the sword kid, but it he hadn’t done anything yet and Owen didn’t get the feeling he’d attack first. Of course, Owen could beat him, but he wasn’t about to pick a fight unprovoked.

(I’ve gotta go like now and I’ll be back in around two hours)

(Okay, have fun wherever you're going! Seeya then~)

Ingrid snarled in frustration, looking from Julia and Wes back to Owen.
"You really want to make this hard for me, don't you, kid?" She barked. "Fine - Let's make things difficult! Let's get real difficult, because my morning hasn't been crazy enough! Let's go!" Taking off her sunglasses, the ginger threw them to the ground into the fire. Her black-and-orange eyes narrowed. The fire on her body extending to cover both of her arms, she raised her arms as if about to engage in a fistfight. Quickly glancing at Francis, she gave him a look as if to say 'What are you waiting for? Help me out.' before roaring and reaching to deliver a fiery punch to Owen's side, seemingly either unaware of or too confident/angry to notice his sword.

You pulled a sword on us,” Mindy reminded him, inching closer to Kelsey—he didn’t seem too badly hurt, but she didn’t like how loudly he’d screamed. “We’re just here to—to help someone.” She didn’t know how much to say. She’d never been the best liar, but she certainly didn’t trust this guy enough to tell him the whole truth. Besides, it was Kelsey’s mom in danger; it wasn’t her truth to tell.

Owen was almost startled that this lady was crazy enough to come at him barehanded. He moved to swat her hand with the flat of his blade. Maybe she’d started it, but he didn’t want anybody to lose a hand. This was a person, not a monster.

Jude nodded as if to say 'fair', before he looked even more confused. "Wait - Who're you here ta help?" He asked. "I'm gonna need some names here."
"You never gave us your name when she asked!" Kelsey responded, taking a step towards Mindy with an ease that didn't align well with his scream - Turns out he was probably just a baby about pain. "-and Mindy's right, you never told us your name so you shouldn't demand any names we might have, o-or know."
"Hey, be more polite, I have a sword." Jude narrowed his eyes.
"I have a gun!" Kelsey yelped, raising his rifle.
"And you've missed reasonably close targets multiple times now."
Kelsey opened his mouth to respond, but closed it. Yeah, that was embarrassing. That was very embarrassing.

Owen was almost startled that this lady was crazy enough to come at him barehanded. He moved to swat her hand with the flat of his blade. Maybe she’d started it, but he didn’t want anybody to lose a hand. This was a person, not a monster.

"Too cowardly to even use the blade of your sword?" She growled. "I'll roast you alive if you think you can challenge me and not even take it seriously."

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 04, 2018, 01:44:50 PM
Mindy bit her tongue when Kelsey said her name, trying not to react in case the sword guy hadn’t caught on. “And I have a staff,” she added, “which, if need be, I can whollop you pretty hard with.” Why did she say that? She didn’t know how true that was. She’d barely been holidng her own.

Owen spread his free arm and dared a grin. “If you want to lose a hand.”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 04, 2018, 01:54:08 PM
Jude let out a loud laugh.
"Oh, she's gonna hit me with a stick!" He mocked. "In wood-versus-blade battles, lady, blade usually wins."

"You're an absolute fool." Ingrid growled and sent a non-flaming fist flying rapidly to Owen's stomach.

"Is thank you even in your vocabulary?!" Seb snapped at Yuudai, then turned his attention back toward Jean-Luc. Luckily, the glass had seemed to distract him so Seb could focus on trying to channel some of Sobek's power.

"Shoot, shoot, shoot," Julia muttered to herself. She should've done more prep for protective spells. She gave up her search and focused on the fire lady. "Hey, hot head!" She shouted.

(A) True, sorry! and

Yuudai glared. "Why should I be thanking you? I can handle myself!" She raised her staff but got distracted by the sound of someone else laughing (Jude). "There are other people all around. We're surrounded. Is our current plan of attack all that wise?"
As if on cue, a dagger flew between Seb and Yuudai, embedding itself into the carousel. Jean-Luc stared at them with rage in his eyes.
"Do you have a plan of attack?" Yuudai whispered.

Ingrid looked up and turned to face Julia.
"You better be offering a better challenge than the soft one over here." She replied, her voice a low rumble.

Seb glanced at Yuudai. "I was gonna punch him. You have a better idea?" He asked, his eyes training back on Jean-Luc as he approached.

"Depends on how you like water!" Julia said, and manipulated the Mist to show a wide pool of water between them, and was growing more toward Ingrid. It wasn't real - Julia needed to work on her abilities more to create a real object from the Mist - but it looked and felt real enough.

Francis' eyes widened at the water, but he didn't mind getting wet. He charged through it, barreling toward Julia, gladius at the ready.

Wes stepped slightly in front of Julia. She needed to be able to do her thing, and if that meant fending off fire chicks and their sidekicks, he'd do it.

Seb glanced at Yuudai. "I was gonna punch him. You have a better idea?" He asked, his eyes training back on Jean-Luc as he approached.

Yuudai looked like she wanted to say something rude again, but thought better of it. "That's probably a decent plan." She shrugged, before turning and pulling the dagger out of the carousel.
"Give that back." Jean-Luc demanded as he neared the duo.
"Um. No?" Yuudai responded hesitantly, holding the knife as if she had no idea what to do with it.

"Depends on how you like water!" Julia said, and manipulated the Mist to show a wide pool of water between them, and was growing more toward Ingrid. It wasn't real - Julia needed to work on her abilities more to create a real object from the Mist - but it looked and felt real enough.

Ingrid growled, recoiling from the water and moving away from Owen, arms still blazing. Apparently, Julia's illusion looked real enough to her. She screeched with rage as she threw another ball of fire, this time aimed at the wall behind Wes and Julia's heads.

(If you want to take the opportunity with this ball of fire hitting the wall playing into Wes getting knocked out [from debris or recoil or dodging and falling or something of the sort], you can, Blue! Unless you've had another idea to do so! If so, heck yeah!!)

Jude let out a loud laugh.
"Oh, she's gonna hit me with a stick!" He mocked. "In wood-versus-blade battles, lady, blade usually wins."
Mindy tightened her grip on her staff to keep it from shaking and leveled it at the attacker. “Not in competent hands. I wouldn’t act so cocky,” she said, fully aware of how cocky she was acting.

Post by: GreyCaboose on January 05, 2018, 11:21:52 AM
"Mindy..." Kelsey whispered, clearly concerned about their odds of winning this fight. "You sure you wanna keep ticking this fellow off?"
Jude smirked and swung his sword to connect with the staff when -
Bang
This time Kelsey didn't miss.
Jude fell to his knees as a patch of red formed on his stomach, sword clattering to the ground next to him. Kelsey had shot him.
"Oh my god." Kelsey covered his mouth with his hand. "Oh my god, Mindy, I've shot him!"
Jude didn't respond. While he seemed to be more okay than most who've just been shot, he was more focused on clutching his stomach.
"Mindy, what do I do now??" Kelsey cried. Usually, when he shot someone, he was less dramatic. But that was always because the people he shot would come back later. This man was mortal, as far as Kelsey knew. This was causing the Irishman intense panic.

Mindy dropped her staff—probably a bad idea—and gaped at Kelsey. “I-I don’t know!” she said. “I’ve never shot someone before!” She used a blunt weapon for a reason. Weird as it was for her job description, she didn’t like seeing blood.

Owen hit the floor to avoid getting burnt by the fireballs, but it must have packed quite a punch, because a chunk of the wall fell down on top of him. Pain rocketed through his ribs and down his right leg, but luckily he was knocked unconscious  by a smaller piece falling off.

(Wes?)

Julia shielded herself from the debris, crouching down. Her mist illusion disappeared, and she looked back up with a shocked express when she saw Wes. She dropped to her knees next to him and checked his vitals quickly.

Seb was glad Yuudai at least made a distraction. He centered himself and took a deep breath. "Khe-fa!" he shouted, summoning a powerful fist of Sobek's energy aimed right toward Jean-Luc.

(TIME TO THRUST THIS SADBOI WES INTO THE SHADOW REALM [aka DREAMLAND] - I hope u don't mind me describing the dream sequence! Any events involving other characters have been taken from previous scenes in the RP and I am not trying to godmod!)

In the dream occurring after said knockout, darkness fades only slightly into light. The crackle of a fireplace is a muffled din despite the fireplace actually being very close. The surrounding area is nothing but black void, no way to tell if there is any sort of wall or end to the darkness. A powerful yet subdued, forgotten presence sits next to where Wes is - A peaceful goddess, long forgotten from legend and left alone by her hearth.

Hestia.

Tending attentively to the fireplace next to her, the goddess looks warm, happy, yet somewhat melancholy. Resigned, almost.

Fire, in the now ancient days, symbolized home. A voice echos, clearly belonging to Hestia although the woman at the fireplace makes no motion of speech. Now it symbolizes destruction, or, if it's lucky, escape from home, to the wilds. Fireplaces are so old.

The fire grows brighter, almost looking malevolent.

The goddess halfheartedly turns a log, her expression saddening.

The warmth of family and home is a comfort none should have to live without. She echoes, sounding almost pleading.

The fire only grows, looking dangerous as it consumes the hearth around it.

I understand. She finally replies as a powerful, animalistic roar echoes throughout the void and a large, inhuman, flaming hand reaches from the flames and consumes her. Once the brightness of the fire dims enough to see again, Hestia is gone.

The scene ripples like water, and suddenly a barrage of different images, like switching channels on a TV, fills the view.

A black-haired soldier in old military garb staring vacantly as an explosion is set off behind him.

A boy with braided hair shouting a word unknown to most before the glass of a window nearby shatters, causing a dark-haired older man to scream in pain.

Owen, from the Nike cabin, cheering to himself after throwing a napkin into a trash can. The rest of his table ignores him in favor of throwing things at Wes.

Julia having a tense conversation with the blonde-haired boy from the camp - And then having an orange bottle of pills given to her by said man. Words in the conversation are muffled as if being heard from underwater.

The 'sidekick' to the fire chick walking next to a small, cute-looking girl in an unfamiliar camp, fog surrounding the duo as the girl seems to be reciting one side of a conversation. Something about her seems inauthentic and rehearsed.

A girl with pigtails sitting in a vast dining hall surrounded by individuals who all seem to be from various time zones. The girl is frowning as a brown-haired man seems to be insulting her. The black-haired soldier from before is there, looking concerned.

A Japanese woman staring in horror as the dark-haired older man from before pulls out a silver dagger.

More scenes begin flickering - Blood dripping onto the floor, a small child being led into the dark, the redheaded woman from before shoving the brown-haired man from before through a window. More and more and more until...

Things must change. An unfamiliar voice echoed before the vision ended.

(You don't have to have Wes wake up immediately after this - This is just the Cool Dream)

Mindy dropped her staff—probably a bad idea—and gaped at Kelsey. “I-I don’t know!” she said. “I’ve never shot someone before!” She used a blunt weapon for a reason. Weird as it was for her job description, she didn’t like seeing blood.

Kelsey sounded as if he were about to cry.
"Should we help him??" He yelped.

Julia shielded herself from the debris, crouching down. Her mist illusion disappeared, and she looked back up with a shocked express when she saw Wes. She dropped to her knees next to him and checked his vitals quickly.

Seb was glad Yuudai at least made a distraction. He centered himself and took a deep breath. "Khe-fa!" he shouted, summoning a powerful fist of Sobek's energy aimed right toward Jean-Luc.

Ingrid's flames faltered. She seemed almost...worried for Wes, before she growled again and ignited herself once more.
"Do you want to end up like him?" She growled. "If not, then take him and leave!"

Jean-Luc was pushed backwards with a loud grunt, hitting the wall behind him with a cry of pain. Falling down, he seemed too dazed to move immediately.
Yuudai seemed shocked. "What now?" She asked. "Perhaps we should try and find what he stole. It probably isn't on his person - I don't see pockets on him."

(:O Sick dream sequence)

Mindy spluttered for a while. “I don’t know how! Usually I only meet dying people after they’re dead!” She crouched next to the man Kelsey had shot, far enough to be out of his reach, but trying to read his expression. She didn’t have much sympathy for the guy after the way he’d treated her and Kelsey, but she certainly didn’t want him to die.

Owen scoffed, trying to draw the fire lady’s attention back to him. “Like we’d give up because you dropped a rock on his head.” He was very concious that he hadn’t exactly done much fighting, and he resolved this time not to use the flat of his blade. He glanced at Julia and Wes. Wes would be fine. Wouldn’t he? He’d sprung back pretty quick from his fistfights.

Julia sighed with relief when she saw he was still alright. They had ambrosia for when he woke up, so she wasn't too worried. At that, she stood back up and stepped over Wes, her gaze narrowed in on Ingrid, but she decided she would let Owen handle her and she'd just work on keeping Wes safe for now.

"Where would it be then? We can't search the whole place before he's ready to go again, and there's obviously others here," Seb said, looking around the part of the mall they were in.

Jude seemed incredibly in pain as he grimaced, eyes tightly shut.
Kelsey worriedly knelt next to Mindy.
"Hey, hey there fella, a-are you alr -"
Jude cut him off with a groan.
"Okay, he's not alright." Kelsey looked as if he was going to be sick. "Oh, lord, oh, gods, oh, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph."

~

Ingrid only grew angrier. "Do you make a habit out of purposefully learning nothing, idiot boy?" She growled. "Come at me and die!"

"Where would it be then? We can't search the whole place before he's ready to go again, and there's obviously others here," Seb said, looking around the part of the mall they were in.

Yuudai shook her head. "I know, but... Listen, it has to be here somewhere. Unless he shoved it in the Duat, but I don't want to consider that as an option until I know for sure it's not here!" She pulled her hair in frustration. "Here, we'll start small." She decided, walking around the carousel hurriedly before stopping and widening her eyes.

"Sebastian?" She asked, almost sounding concerned. "There's an unconscious girl over here." Yuudai's grip on her staff/walking stick tightened as she started at Ramona's sleeping body.

Jean-Luc had vanished from his previous area, somehow recovering quicker than expected and deciding not to waste his time with the two magicians. Reappearing from the shadows behind two Norse kids, he delivered a hard kick to Kelsey's side before grabbing Jude's sword and lifting up Jude himself in a few fluid and surprisingly quick motions.

Kelsey cried out once more and fell down, hissing in pain. When he reopened his eyes, all that was left of Jude (or the strange shadowy man who kicked him) was a puddle of blood.

Jean-Luc, now with Jude's arm around his shoulder, quickly reappeared near Ingrid.

"We have wasted time." The Frenchman hissed. "The gunman and his friend have neutralized Jackson, and clearly you've disobeyed your orders to kill. The magicians are scrappy and I am not in my element in this disgusting American shell of a place. We need to leave, now."

He turned and glanced back at the carousel area.

"-Particularly if we want to keep the Greek girl Jude brought."

Sebastian frowned and came over to see. "We should bring her with us," he said, kneeling beside her for a moment.

Julia stared with wide eyes when the man appeared, but her eyes went straight to Jude. What in Hades was he doing here? And the Greek girl... "Ramona?" she asked, then looked toward the area the shadowy man had looked to.

Mindy reached for her staff when the new guy appeared, but he was gone before she could do anything. She reclaimed her staff anyway and crouched next to Kelsey. “Are you okay?” she asked him. “Also, what the hell just happened?”

Owen resisted the urge to stamp in frustration. Was he ever going to get a proper fight? Still, if Ramona really was here, it was probably for the best. Succeeding at their quest was still winning. That was the biggest kind of winning.
He still wished he could’ve done something cooler.

Julia stared with wide eyes when the man appeared, but her eyes went straight to Jude. What in Hades was he doing here? And the Greek girl... "Ramona?" she asked, then looked toward the area the shadowy man had looked to.

Yuudai nodded.
"She could be wounded, though." She decided. "People usually don't power nap through fights that long without being knocked out cold. I'm going to check her for wounds and see if I need to heal her."

Ingrid looked as well at the area, failing to suppress a shriek of rage upon seeing the two young magicians near Ramona's unconscious body.

"Why would you just leave her there??" She shrieked.

"Oh, sorry, was I supposed to ignore the dying man I'm now carrying in favor of the vessel?" Jean-Luc hissed. "I'm not a-"

Ingrid cut the man off as she threw a rather large fireball towards the carousel, igniting the roof of it in some attempt to get the magicians to get away from it. Taking a few more glances at the trio, she threw down another fireball onto the ground to separate herself and the other two from the Greeks before running back towards the carousel.

"You're an idiot." Jean-Luc shook his head, glancing at Julia and Wes and Owen and narrowing his eyes. "...You're Greeks, aren't you? You knew the girl." He smirked. "How foolish of me to not realize that sooner." His smirk faded. "Doesn't look like any of you are gifted with fire, though."

The Frenchman shrugged a shoulder and backed up.

"The three of you can never defeat us alone. Give up. Maybe then you'll be spared when the day of judgement comes." Looking at Owen, he smiled again. "But at least if you are not spared, you will die for a worthy purpose."

With that he turned, taking the now-unconscious Jude and vanishing with him into the darkness once more.

~

When a fireball suddenly hit the top of the carousel above Yuudai and Seb, Yuudai jumped back in shock. Thinking quickly, she chanted a Divine Word, causing water to form and douse the top of the carousel before too much damage could spread: "Maw."
Looking back after the fire was out, her eyes widened when she realized that there was a fire burning near what looked like two or three people while a very angry woman with flames in her hands made her way towards them.
"A fire elemental?" She whispered to herself, trying to figure out what kind of threat she was now up against.

Mindy reached for her staff when the new guy appeared, but he was gone before she could do anything. She reclaimed her staff anyway and crouched next to Kelsey. “Are you okay?” she asked him. “Also, what the hell just happened?”

Kelsey huffed before getting back up. "'M fine." He replied. "I-I don't think anything's broken. Yeah, I'm tougher'n that. I...I think that man jus' came out o' the shadows and took that blonde fella. I didn' even hear him coming." He coughed. "I think that maybe he's a-"

A fireball crashed into the carousel to the side of them, causing Kelsey to yelp once more and look at the area.

"Th-There's more people over there." He started, but then stopped once he saw water materialize and douse the flames. "I...Uh, magic people? Firefighters? I'm getting more and more confused."

Owen frowned at the last remark and started to object, but the strange new man was gone before he could say anything. He kept his sword out in case anyone else appeared, but backed up to where Julia and Wes were, hoping to defend them from whatever came next. He hoped it was a monster. Monsters were much less confusing than cultists.

Mindy furrowed her eyebrows and nodded in agreement. “Should we check it out?” she murmured, knowing they should, but hoping Kelsey would say no. She’d been out longer than she felt comfortable with, and besides, she didn’t want another fight.

"Can we catch a break?" Seb muttered. "Let's just take her and go!" He said to Yuudai, kneeling down to pick up the unconscious girl.

Julia grit her teeth, but there was no going through the fire and if she couldn't make real water then...they were stuck. She knelt back down beside Wes and checked for any major injuries, which it looked like there were some so moving him would be difficult while he was unconscious.

Mindy furrowed her eyebrows and nodded in agreement. “Should we check it out?” she murmured, knowing they should, but hoping Kelsey would say no. She’d been out longer than she felt comfortable with, and besides, she didn’t want another fight.

"I, ah, well -"
Kelsey stopped when he put two and two together.
"Wait. That was a fireball - That girl from the Valkryrie Vision! She was all fire!! She's here!" He suddenly became far less restrained and scared in terms of posture. "We should go find her. She probably knows where my mother is!"

"Can we catch a break?" Seb muttered. "Let's just take her and go!" He said to Yuudai, kneeling down to pick up the unconscious girl. 

"We can't leave!" Yuudai insisted. "We haven't found the scroll, we need to -"
With a shout, she was kicked to the ground from behind. Ingrid stared at Sebastian with wide dark eyes, nothing but rage in her expression.
Yuudai begun to pick herself up, but Ingrid lifted her foot and slammed it down on Yuudai's leg. Something crunched. Yuudai didn't react in pain. The crunch was plastic. Pushing herself away from Ingrid, who seemed stunned by the crunch, Yuudai rolled up her pant leg and looked at her prosthetic leg - Which was now looking about 25% stomped on.
Yuudai resisted the urge to say her very first curse word.
"Darn it." She hissed.

Ingrid looked back at Sebastian with fire in both her hands.
"Give me that girl." She demanded. "Now."

(Blue, you can have Francis be with Ingrid or with the Greeks, or maybe he went a different path and ended up finding the Norse duo somehow!)

Seb stared at her wirh wide eyes, then narrowed them and held his Khopesh up defensively, standing up in front of Ramona. "No way," he said to her.

"Listen, kid, I've had a really bad morning so far so I would love it if you could just let one thing here be simple so that nobody has to get any more hurt." Ingrid growled. "I don't know what it is you magicians do, but you and your buddy have already pissed me off. So give me the girl and we'll leave you alone."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 03:51:48 PM
(Do you want Ramona to be rescued or no?)

Seb just shrugged and flipped his khopesh around. "Maybe you shouldn't be a bad guy, then maybe things would go better."

(I don't, but at the same time I don't want to seem god-moddy or demanding! I'm also trying to keep action lower to give more time for Pan and Blue!!)

"Really? Wow, kid. Way to prove you're even stupider than I thought." Ingrid smirked. "There are no bad guys here. And if there were, it wouldn't be us. We're trying to make the world better. What are you doing? Getting in our way, it seems."

Mindy supressed a groan. Kelsey was right, of course, but she couldn’t say she wanted to check out any fireballs. “Let’s go, then,” she murmured.

(Okay! And Kira, lemme do you one better than hurting Seb physically with gIVING SEB A MORAL DILEMMA)

"Progress takes time." Ingrid shrugged. "This may not seem big now, but when the time comes, the world's gonna bend to our will. But if you just think I'm crazy..."

Kelsey nodded and made his way quickly to the carousel area, taking in the scene at hand. Two unfamiliar people plus an unconscious girl, but where was Ingr-
He felt a rough hand grab him and pull him close, causing him to drop his rifle. Heat grew near his face and Kelsey wasn't entirely sure what was happening, but he wasn't really a fan.

Ingrid held the black-haired man by the hair, forcing his head back as she held her free hand near his face, letting the flames get close.
"How about a trade, then?" She asked. "Does that sound too crazy? You give me the girl and I don't kill this guy."

Yuudai frowned. "I don't think we even know that guy!" She protested, a bit distracted trying to remember ways to fix her leg.

"How should that change anything? If he dies, it's your fault." Ingrid stared at Sebastian with narrowed eyes. "Do you want this blood on your hands? If not, give. Me. The. Girl."

Mindy’s heart leapt when Ingrid grabbed Kelsey and her hand went instinctively to her staff before she could take in the whole situation. Once she did, she muttered a curse and let her hand drop again, though staying ready to grab her staff if a fight broke out. She glared at Ingrid and tried to work out if there was anything she could do.

"And you call yourself a good guy?!" Seb glared at her, but his eyes flickered down to Kelsey. Honestly, where'd they even come from? His gaze dropped to the unconscious girl. He had no idea who she was, if she was on this pre-coronation Azula chick's side or theirs. It was pretty obvious the kid about to get burned alive wasn't on her side, so very reluctantly he stepped away from Ramona.
"Okay, let him go."

Post by: GreyCaboose on January 07, 2018, 10:14:32 AM
"Good choice." Ingrid smirked, but didn't let go of Kelsey until Jean-Luc reappeared from the shadows, still supporting Jude. As soon as he reappeared, the Frenchman grabbed his obelisk-shaped amulet and summoned a portal again, quickly having Ingrid drop Kelsey, grab the girl, and enter the portal before he smiled at Seb and went through it himself, shutting the portal behind him and leaving the mall in silence, the only light coming from the fire still burning before the others with Wes.

Kelsey coughed and shakingly grabbed his rifle once more.
"I'm sorry about that." He quietly said, breaking the silence. "I'm not usually so afraid." Sitting up, he checked his gun and then his cut leg, which wasn't too bad. He was a bit too embarrassed to look any of these strangers in the eyes and was kind of hoping they'd ignore him, also accepting the fact that after what just happened his hopes wouldn't be made reality.

Yuudai wasn't sure who this strange military man was, or most of what had happened, but she was sure of one thing: from where she was sitting, she could see a fire still blazing in front of three or four people.
"I dont know what's going on," She started. "Or who you two distractions are," She pointed first to Kelsey, then to Mindy. "But there are more people over there behind the fire. They could be hurt, or they could be on the side of that fire elemental and Jean-Luc Delacroix. Either way, at the very least Sebastian and I should investigate." She motioned to Seb and then back to herself, apparently now believing that Kelsey and Mindy were idiots. "I dont know who you are or why you're here, so you're not needed. You should probably leave. You dont know what you're getting into. Probably."

Kelsey frowned.
"Um, I dont know who you or 'Sebastian' or 'Jean-Luc Duh-la-crow' or whatever are, either. We were, o-or at the least I was trying to find that fiery lass who almost killed me."

"I didn't ask, stranger." Yuudai glared. "Go back to being quiet and unnessecary if you're not going to be useful."

"Sorry." Kelsey went back to inspecting his gun.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 07, 2018, 11:40:39 AM
Mindy wasn’t sure who this lady was or why she was so mean, but clearly she and Sebastian were involved in something godly or magical, and that meant they could help each other. Or it meant she and Kelsey had more enemies, but either way, it wasn’t something to be ignored.
“Hold on,” she said, scowling at the stranger. “Do you know who those three were?”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 07, 2018, 11:49:17 AM
"I dont think we have any reason to disclose such information." Yuudai narrowed her eyes. "Besides, that's not what we need to focus on right now. Before any of us begin speaking again, I would like to extinguish those fires, correct some of the damage done here, and ensure that whoever's over there isn't a threat. The fire elemental clearly was fighting them due to the flames in the area, and they were left behind, so theyre probably not her allies. But that doesn't mean they are friendly. Sebastian!" She whipped her head quickly to face Deb. "Help me to stand."

"I could help you -" Kelsey offered.

"You could help me just as easily as you could kill me." Yuudai snapped. "I will not entrust a-" She stopped upon looking at Mindy, specifically her staff. "Pardon. Are you a magician?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 11:58:33 AM
Seb's head dropped a bit. "We're back to ordering me around," he muttered, then looked over where the fires were, which wasn't too far away actually. He ignored Yuudai's request - he'd help her in a minute - and focused on the fire. "Maw," he spoke, bringing water to start dousing the fire.

Julia's eyes widened as the water appeared, beginning to put out the fire. "What in Hades?" She said softly as she watched, then looked around until she spotted Owen. "Do you see this?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 07, 2018, 12:02:22 PM
“A...magician?” Mindy repeated. “Not exactly, no. Why?”

Owen nodde to Julia. “I see it. It’s not you?”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 07, 2018, 12:04:14 PM
Yuudai scowled.
"That is what I was about to do, if you would've helped me to stand." She muttered.

“A...magician?” Mindy repeated. “Not exactly, no. Why?"

"Your staff." Yuudai explained. "Staffs are magical tools used by magicians." She held her own staff up. "Like mine."

Kelsey's eyes widened as he watched Seb create water and douse the flames.
"What....are you?" He asked, not understanding what this stranger would have to be to have such a control over water. The son of a sea god? Like Njord? This was just becoming more and more confusing.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 07, 2018, 12:07:27 PM
Mindy looked at her staff in surprise. “What, this? It’s not magic. I just hit people with it. And monsters.” She hesitated, but continued: “Um, I’m a valkyrie. I don’t know what you mean by magician, but it seems like we’re in the same boat here.” Or perhaps adjacent boats.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 12:10:56 PM
"No, I can't make real things," Julia frowned. Soon enough the flames were out and she started marching over to the other group. "Who are you? How did you do that?" She demanded.

"Did no one ever learn how to say thank you?" Seb groaned out and rolled his eyes. "I think we need a round of introductions."

"Val...ky..rie?" Yuudai tested the unfamiliar word on her tongue. "It sounds familiar, but I don't..." She stopped. "I forgot. What it means. Explain, so I can...remember."

"No, I can't make real things," Julia frowned. Soon enough the flames were out and she started marching over to the other group. "Who are you? How did you do that?" She demanded.

"That's for sure. But first...Is that fellow there dead?" He asked, pointing at Wes.

“You’re not Norse,” Mindy guessed. “Or dead? I take warriors’ souls to Valhalla. And I fly, sometimes.” It was a vague description, but it didn’t seem like the time for a whole mythology lesson.

“He’s unconcious,” Owen told the guy with the braids. “Also, did any of you see a redheaded lady throwing fireballs, ‘cause I have a score to settle with her.”

""Norse?" Yuudai scoffed. "I am Japanese. But the blood of the Egyptian pharaohs flows through my veins. Valhalla is an...afterlife. So you are an angel?" Yuudai tilted her head to the side. "Is the gunman with you, then?"

Kelsey looked at Owen before raising a brow.
"You just missed her, lad." He responded. "And you're not alone in that - I've got a few words for her as well."

As he came to, Wes realized that perhaps he'd been injured worse than expected. Everything hurt when he tried to move, and he still had a cold chill from the dream. Hestia had been dragged to the underworld. A goddess. His mother. Wes had never met her, but surely a being that powerful shouldn't be able to be subdued like that.

(And I'm just gonna make something up for Francis.)

Francis had been knocked into a wall at some point during the altercation, and he suspected he had a concussion. He'd never lost consciousness, but Ingrid had left him behind nevertheless. Which meant he was smack in the middle of a camp full of his enemies. Were they going to take him prisoner? Francis gingerly stood up, looking around for his gladius.

Julia sighed with relief as Wes came to. "Here," she said and reached into her bag to get him a square of ambrosia. "Take it slow, I dunno what injuries you have."

Seb frowned. Norse? How was a Norse Valkyrie there? "Does Flight of the Valkyries play every time you go somewhere?" He asked Mindy.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Mindy frowned. “Of course not.”

Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 01:05:50 PM
When Wes woke up, Kelsey seemed a bit more relaxed. It was good that nobody was dead. Looking at the stuff Julia offered the previously-unconscious boy, he tilted his head to the side.
"What kind of medicine is that?" He asked concernedly.

Mindy glanced at Kelsey. “I’m not his valkyrie, if that’s what you mean. But we are here together, more or less.”

Kelsey nodded. "We're here trying to track down my mother." He explained, feeling more at ease to discuss things now that Mindy seemed to be okay with sharing. "She's, heh, it may sound stupid, but she's a goddess. I have reason to believe she may have been taken."

Yuudai frowned.
"A goddess?" She asked. "Impossible. Gods are too almighty to produce mortal offspring."

Seb frowned. Norse? How was a Norse Valkyrie there? "Does Flight of the Valkyries play every time you go somewhere?" He asked Mindy.

Yuudai scowled.
"Don't be an idiot." She snapped. "Of course it doesn't! Music doesn't just play when people appear. How foolish."
She hesitated.
"Does it?"

Mindy frowned. “Of course not.”

Yuudai laughed.
"Ha! I was right! Now help me up, Sebastian!"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 09, 2018, 01:10:36 PM
"It's ambrosia, food of the gods," Julia informed Kelsey as she putthe rest back into her bag.

"It was a joke," Seb shrugged and then cast a glare at Yuudai before he finally held a hand out to help her get up. "Can you, uh, repair your leg?" He asked.

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 01:49:42 PM
"I've never heard of it before." Kelsey observed. "What does it do? Who made it?"

Yuudai returned the glare, but grabbed onto Seb's hand and pulled herself upright.
"The damage isn't bad enough to prevent movement." She explained. "I can find a way to repair it later. For now it isn't an issue."

She glanced at Mindy, giving a vaguely interested expression, then looked at Kelsey, Julia, Wes, and Owen, her interest dissolving. However, when she saw an unfamiliar face - Francis - She grew more cautious. Holding her staff defensively, she rather quickly made her march towards the stranger.

"You." She hissed, narrowing her eyes and pointing her staff at him accusatorily. "I don't think I recognize you. Are you one of them? One of the individuals who attacked me and..." She stopped, glancing momentarily back at the others, failing to figure out who to group with her and who not her. "Why are you here? Are you with the Valykrie, or one of those three with the unconscious man, or are you with Jean-Luc Delacroix and that fire maiden?"

Kelsey frowned at Yuudai's aggression before looking back at Seb.
"Should you stop her from hurting him or something?" He asked worriedly.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 09, 2018, 01:55:53 PM
Francis scrambled to grab his gladius and raised it defensively. "Now, why'd you have to grab your weapon?" he asked Yuudai, slowly and cautiously. "This was just a simple conversation. I wasn't planning on using mine."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 02:01:10 PM
Yuudai's expression didn't waver.
"If you're not a threat to me, then I won't use mine either. This is a precaution, considering, you know, I was just attacked." She furrowed her brows and sternly added: "I will repeat myself: Were you with Jean-Luc Delacroix and the fire maiden?"

Kelsey mumbled to himself. "She keeps saying that long French name like anyone here actually knows who it is."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 09, 2018, 02:05:43 PM
"She expects people to know a lot of things," Seb shrugged and eyed the new guy's sword warily.

"Uh, I don't know who makes ambrosia," Julia frowned and then stood when the Roman guy approached. She drew out her dagger and watched the interaction between him and Yuudai.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 09, 2018, 02:15:03 PM
Wes ate the ambrosia slowly, keeping an eye on the situation with Francis and Yuudai.

"I don't know who that is." Francis narrowed his eyes. "I wasn't given a lot of information to go off of here."

"Uh, I don't know who makes ambrosia," Julia frowned and then stood when the Roman guy approached. She drew out her dagger and watched the interaction between him and Yuudai.

Kelsey nodded in understanding to both answers.
"Oh, I'm an idiot!" He slapped his forehead. "I'm askin' you all these questions and I haven't even introduced myself. I'm Kelsey Young. I'm a son of Idunn." He seemed to forget that not everyone here knew about Norse gods.

~

Yuudai seemed unimpressed.
"The woman who controls fire, and her accomplice, the man who works with shadows." She spoke as if she were dumbing something down for a toddler. "I believe there was a third, but I was too busy being attacked and almost killed to make sure."

Kelsey raised his hand.
"There was a third." He confirmed. "I shot him."
Silence from Kelsey.
"I-It was an accident."

Yuudai rolled her eyes.
"So before I can begin to trust you, you must answer my question. Were you with them? And be honest."

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 09, 2018, 02:37:15 PM

Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 02:39:38 PM
"Because if I don't, it is me and all of these others against you." Yuudai explained. "You are outnumbered and outmatched. You have a sword. We have two magicians, a Valy-krie, a gunman, a girl with a dagger, and two others." She glanced at Julia out of her peripheral vision to confirm to herself that yes, that is a dagger. "So why are you here and who are you with?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 09, 2018, 02:42:07 PM
“Valkyrie,” Mindy corrected quietly. For someone who acted like she knew everything, this lady wasn’t doing a great job catching on.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 02:47:45 PM
"I said that." Yuudai replied, unable to accept the fact that she did not say that.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 09, 2018, 02:48:32 PM
Julia glanced down at the Celestial Bronze dagger. If the guy attacked, the - what did she say she was? The magician - would be on her own.

"Uh, maybe just let him explain himself," Seb said warily, walking up next to Yuudai with some faint hope he could get her to calm down. That was obviously wishful thinking, but worth a shot.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

"I met one of my sisters about a week ago. She talked me into coming here, but didn't give me anything to go off of. I hadn't met anyone else." Francis eyed the others as he talked. No one seemed ready and eager to jump at Genghis Khan's aid. Perhaps she didn't have as many allies as she claimed.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 09, 2018, 03:07:50 PM
"One of your...sisters?" Kelsey looked around. "Is that anyone here?"

Yuudai suddenly found herself very interested in her staff - It was her way of sulking and ignoring everyone who disagreed with her.

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 10, 2018, 02:45:15 AM
Kelsey took a few steps towards Francis.
"Yeah, and uh, why did she want you to meet her here? I, ah, I don't want to seem rude or accusatory at all -" He glanced towards Yuudai shortly before shrugging. "-but it looks a lot to me like this is where the, ah, um....'bad guys'?" He didn't seem sure of himself upon saying that. "Where they were meetin' up. Did she tell you why she wanted you to come here?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 05:22:34 AM
Francis shrugged at Julia. "Venus has a lot of daughters; I don't know exactly how many. But she didn't say why she wanted me to come here," he said to Kelsey.

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 05:30:40 AM
Francis tightened his grip on his gladius again, and rolled his eyes. "Nobody gave you 'the talk'? Well, okay, you see, when a god and a mortal find each other attractive, sometimes they get this feeling -"

Wes frowned. Sure, this guy could very well be bad news, but Wes had seen him in his dream. That girl, he guessed, might have been his sister. And something hadn't felt right about her.

"Oh, shut up," Julia rolled her eyes at him. "No, I mean, how can your mom be Venus? Don't you mean Aphrodite?" She squinted at him.

"Like, Greek and Roman gods?" Seb looked utterly confused. First a Norse Valkyrie and...whatever Kelsey was, now Greeks and Romans? Here he thought Egyptians were the only ones.

"This is obviously a lie." She snapped. "Gods do not procreate with mortals!"

"Yeah they do." Kelsey replied quietly. "Like I was just saying, my missing mum's a god."

Yuudai shook her head.
"He is lying." She accused, pointing to Francis. "He's not to be trusted!"

"We're demigods, too," Wes said, gesturing between himself, Owen, and Julia. "Children of gods and mortals. Are we lying, too?"

Julia turned to Yuudai and raised an eyebrow.

Seb looked around at the others and then shrugged. "I don't really know what to believe right now."

Julia turned to Yuudai and raised an eyebrow.

Yuudai huffed.
"I-It's impossible, though!" She protested. "Gods don't, they don't do that!"

Seb looked around at the others and then shrugged. "I don't really know what to believe right now."

Kelsey nodded in understand.
"I hear you." He agreed.

Wes shrugged. "Why wouldn't they? They've got all the right equipment."

Francis lowered his gladius slightly, looking around at the others again. At least he wasn't the only one confused.

"It's kind of their thing," Julia agreed and shrugged as well.

"So, you...are children of Greek gods," Seb pointed to the three greeks, "you're Roman, and you're Norse?" He clarified, pointing to Francis and Kelsey next.

Wes shrugged. "Why wouldn't they? They've got all the right equipment."

Francis lowered his gladius slightly, looking around at the others again. At least he wasn't the only one confused.
"It's kind of their thing," Julia agreed and shrugged as well.

"Because mortals aren't worthy!" Yuudai responded. "Gods are too almighty to stoop to mortals."

Kelsey coughed.
"But they have before." He responded. "In myths."

"Myths are myths. They aren't real." Yuudai snapped.

"So, you...are children of Greek gods," Seb pointed to the three greeks, "you're Roman, and you're Norse?" He clarified, pointing to Francis and Kelsey next.

Kelsey nodded.
"My mother's Idunn." He restated. "Ah, goddess of immortality. And apples."

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 07:21:53 AM
"Mine's Hestia, goddess of the home and fireplaces," Wes answered. And she's in the middle of more fire than she bargained for.

Francis nodded. "And mine's Venus. Love, fertility, beauty, all that stuff. And no, I don't mean Aphrodite," he said to Julia.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 07:26:19 AM
Julia frowned at that. How could the Roman and Greek gods exist? She shook her head and looked at Yuudai and Seb. "My mom is Hecate, goddess of crossroads, magic, trivial knowledge, and necromancy," she explained, letting go of her dagger to cross her arms.

"Alrighty. So, many sets of gods. How's that work?" Seb asked, though he doubted anyone knew the answer 
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 10, 2018, 07:35:56 AM
Kelsey raised his hand.
"Lots of cultures?" He suggested. "When I was a kid back in Dublin my father n' I were Catholics. But there were others who were Protestants and such. After I died, it sort of became, ah, a big deal. But, ah, I mean, um. If there's lots of other cultures, then maybe it makes sense that there's other gods." He shrugged. "It sounds confusing, I guess, but I'm open to believing there could be more - It hasn't been the first time that I discovered a new pantheon or whatever it's called."

“Nike,” Owen volunteered. “Goddess of victory. She’s pretty cool.”

“And my parents are both mortal,” Mindy added. “And yeah, it’s like Kelsey said. The Norse gods are obviously here, but I know lots of people who believe in other gods. Like capital-G God. More pantheons isn’t too out there.”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 10, 2018, 10:39:10 AM
Yuudai seemed a bit like she was questioning everything she'd learned. "This is...this is upsetting to me." She shook her head.

Kelsey nodded in agreement with Mindy.
"Yeah! So I don't have any good reason not to believe you're all demigods like I am." He smiled good-naturedly. "Although that brings the question again, ah, Mindy and I are here on account of my mother, uh, Venus fellow is here lookin fer his sister...What are, ah, you others here about?" He pointed at Seb, and then pointed at Julia, Wes, and Owen.

"Sebastian and I are here because a powerful magician stole from the Brooklyn House." Yuudai explained. "His name is Jean-Luc Delacroix, as I have previously stated, and he is and follower of Kek. For those uneducated, Kek is an Egyptian god of darkness and chaos. Jean-Luc leads a small group of like-minded cultists who follow Kek, and he is wanted in his home country for many crimes. He is the black-haired man who attacked Sebastian and I."

Kelsey nodded slowly in understanding, piecing things together in his head. So this Jean-Luc guy was probably the one who kicked him.

"And what about you, ah, Greeks?" He asked, looking at Julia, Wes, and Owen. "What brought you here?"

“We’re questing to rescue a camper who disappeared mysteriously,” Owen told them, puffing his chest out. “You all haven’t seen...uh...” He turned to Wes and Julia and murmured, “What does Ramona look like again?” He hadn’t exactly known her well.

While the others were talking, Mindy sidled up to Kelsey and whispered, “I have Band-Aids in my pocket, if you want. For your leg.” It was a pretty big cut for Band-Aids to solve, but maybe it would be better than nothing.

"You were missing a camper?" Yuudai asked. "A girl?" She thought for a moment. "Do you know the circumstances of her disappearance? Sebastian and I found an unconscious girl here a little while ago."

While the others were talking, Mindy sidled up to Kelsey and whispered, “I have Band-Aids in my pocket, if you want. For your leg.” It was a pretty big cut for Band-Aids to solve, but maybe it would be better than nothing.

Kelsey looked at Mindy and nodded, smiling gratefully.
"That'd be appreciated, thank you." He whispered back.

I don’t,” Owen admitted quietly, stepping back to let Wes or Julia explain. It had something to do with the new guy, right? Whatever his name was. Big blond guy.

Mindy nodded back and passed Kelsey a handful of somewhat crumpled, but safely-sealed Band-Aids.

Mindy took a quick check of herself and shook her head. “No, I’m okay.” She hesitated, then added, “I meant to ask, and stop me if this is too personal, but haven’t you...shot people before?”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 10, 2018, 01:10:46 PM
Kelsey's smile faded.
"Of course I have." He confirmed. "It's just...it's been 101 years since I shot anyone who, if they were to die....wouldn't come back." He shuddered. "It's frightening to me to, ah, be responsible for any more...permanent deaths. I'd had my fair share when I was alive." He shrugged. "Then again, I don't know for a fact that the fella I shot was mortal, but..." He sighed. "Being back on Midgard is disorienting. I get all anxious and worried about dying o-or causing deaths." The Irishman looked down guiltily. "It's really foolish, sorry."

Julia nodded. "Yes, a girl. She was-" she cut herself off, unsure how much to actually tell these people. It was clear they were all on the same side, for now. As she thought that, her gaze slid to Francis warily before she quickly looked at the magicians again. "Well, the unconscious girl might have been her. Did they take her with them?" She asked.

Sebastian nodded. "Yeah, I tried to stop them but the fire chick threatened Kelsey and well...it was a dilemma. But they must have gone through the Duat or something," he said, then his brows furrowed. "Wait...wait, if they went through the Duat, we might be able to find them through that!" he said excitedly, turning to Yuudai. "Except I'm not any good at that sort of magic, I don't do a lot with the Divine stuff. Can you?"

Kelsey smiled sadly.
"Perhaps not to you, but for an einherji...I'm the laughingstock of my floor for a reason."

"Of course I can." She responded, not actually sure if she could. "I can probably use a form of surveillance magic to see where they are now."

Yuudai narrowed her eyes.
"If I was incapable, I wouldn't have offered." She responded slowly, trying her best to hide her own uncertainty. She had done it before, of course, in Tokyo, but it had been a while since then. "It'd be our best gamble, anyways."

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 07:25:42 AM
"You speak as if I wouldn't know already to do that." Yuudai smirked before she opened her purse and removed a paintbrush, and then a small, black container of (hopefully nontoxic) ink or paint. Sitting cross-legged back on the floor, she uncapped the container, set it down, dipped the brush in the paint, and applied the hieroglyphs under her eyes with careful, practiced precision, seeming extra cautious since she didn't have a mirror.

Kelsey stared in confusion at Yuudai as he ripped the paper of one of his Bandaids absentmindedly.

"The hieroglyphs help with looking into the Duat." Yuudai explained.

"You two keep saying 'Duat', what even is that -"

"Shut up." Yuudai closed her eyes to focus and started mumbling to herself quietly. When she reopened her eyes, they were glowing faintly.
Focusing as she looked into the Duat, Yuudai searched for Jean-Luc or any of his accomplices.
Silence.
Silence.
Yuudai jolted.
"Jean-Luc and the fire maiden are in Alaska." She confirmed. "They have, with them, a blonde man with a wound in his stomach as well as the unconscious girl. I don't know the exact location, though."
The glowing faded gently. Yuudai reached up and smeared the hieroglyphs on her cheeks to prevent further looking into the Dust before she rubbed the inky paintbrush on her pants to dry it, recapped the container, and put them both back into her purse.
"Does anyone here know about the blonde-haired man with the wound? I did not recognize him."

Kelsey looked down guilitily as he applied the band-aid to his leg.

Wes turned to Julia and Owen quizzically. "D'ya think that was Jude?" he asked, keeping his voice low so Yuudai wouldn't hear.

With no eyes on him now, Francis lowered his gladius completely and pondered his options. He could go home - except, he couldn't, not when he hadn't figured anything out yet. But there was still the chance that Pharaoh Samurai could take him prisoner; she did seem to be the one in charge. But what exactly they were planning to do with him after that, he wasn't sure he wanted to find out. Slowly, Francis took a few steps backward, testing to see if anyone would notice.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 08:02:52 AM
Kelsey guiltily shrugged.
"I may have shot that blonde man." He told Yuudai. "He was this, ah, tall, um, very American fella with a sword. Talked kinda like this." He did a bad impression of Jude's Southern accent.

Yuudai ignored Kelsey, as usual, glancing towards the others before her gaze landed on Francis.
"You do not have to back up from me when I do magic." She brought up accusatorily. "It isn't that dangerous."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 08:05:54 AM
Julia listened to Kelsey's explanation and then nodded. "Yeah, sounds like it. So the unconscious girl is probably Ramona.." she whispered back to Wes. Alaska? That was...far. They could do it though, no problem.

Sebastian sighed and looked frowned at the ground. "Okay, so we're going to Alaska, then? Did it seem like they'd be there a while?" He asked Yuudai.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 11, 2018, 08:11:05 AM
Alaska. Mindy looked at the floor. That was far. And sounded like it would take a long time. She’d only agreed to this on the condition it would only take a few days, but it hardly seemed right to drop out now. But she’d fall so far behind in algebra. If she even survived.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 08:19:13 AM
Wes frowned, thinking. Alaska. His father's family lived along the way. It'd be easy to wait until they passed through Oregon, and then he could just slip away.

Francis sighed, but didn't say anything.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 09:12:58 AM
Yuudai nodded.
"It looked like they have some kind of base there. Since the blonde one is wounded, they will have to bs staying there a while."

Kelsey glanced at Mindy.
"Um...you dont need to stay for this." He mentioned. "I mean, you have school. And, you know, family. To get back to."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 11, 2018, 09:21:35 AM
“Let’s hit ‘em there, then!” Owen said eagerly. “Don’t give them the chance to recover!”

Mindy nodded and touseled one of her pigtails, not looking at Kelsey. “I need to think about it,” she murmured.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 09:47:10 AM
"Well, we still need to discuss planning, strategy, and who we all even are." Kelsey responded to Owen. The soldier fidgeted with one of the pockets on his uniform. "I mean, I introduced myself, but I haven't gotten introductions from any of you, and besides that, we don't even know the full extent of what they have on their side! We can't run in blindly."
More quietly, to Mindy, he added: "I understand. This got a lot more complicated than I expected it to be."

Yuudai stood, closing her purse.
"Before any attacking, or hitting, we should figure out our own circumstances. It is currently..." She checked her watch. "2:48 AM and we are all in a abandoned mall. We need to figure out what to do now. And also," She pointed to Francis. "Somebody needs to watch him. I still do not trust him."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 11, 2018, 09:48:49 AM
“I’ll watch him,” Owen volunteered, putting a hand up. He hadn’t done much in the fight before. Didn’t seem very hard to watch.

Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 11:49:00 AM
“I’m fifteen,” Owen protested. “But you’re welcome.”

Yuudai ignored his protest. "Jean-Luc stole a scroll from the library of the Brooklyn House. It had spells, no doubt, that he and his comrades are planning to use for no good. Does anyone else know what's going on or what else they may have taken?"

Kelsey raised his hand.
"My mom." He explained, looking somewhat tired of repeating himself. "I had a dream - Well, like, a vision, I suppose - Of my mother. Idunn. Being held captive. The fire woman - Actually, I think her name's Ingrid - She's a daughter of, ah, Logi? That's what the fellow August said, Logi's a god of fire. He's this big old fire giant, which I guess Ingrid gets her fire and anger from. But, um, I believe she, or at the least her allies, kidnapped my mother." The Irish soldier looked down guiltily. "I know that she and whoever she's with means to start some kind of war."

Yuudai looked at Kelsey for a bit before turning and facing the others.
"Anyone else?" She asked.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 12:14:43 PM
Kelsey seemed to think for a moment.
"In what I saw with her..." He started, remembering the Valkyrie vision. "She was angry at the Norse gods. Killed her own twin brother over it. Shoved him out a window. Thats why I think she must've taken my mom. And I reckon perhaps replacing the gods she's angry at is her main motivation for it?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 11, 2018, 12:23:11 PM
Owen whistled. “Yikes.”

"Something fiery has taken Hestia, too," Wes added. "When I was out cold, I had...a dream, or a vision or something, I guess. She was tending to a fireplace, and the fire reached out and - and just consumed her."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 11, 2018, 02:11:20 PM
Kelsey's expression softened in concern.
"It could've easily been Ingrid or her father." He decided. "Im...sorry about your mother being taken, though." Kelsey didn't know much about Greek mythology, but in his 101 years at Valhalla, he'd at least heard his fair share of big Greek names (after all, there was a fair amount of old Greek soldiers in Valhalla). Like 'Zeus', or 'Hades', or 'Apollo'. He'd never heard anything about a 'Hestia', though. Which probably meant she had to be a more minor, unknown goddess, right? Either way, he had to sympathize with the son of Hestia - After all, Kelsey's own mother was a name often forgotten, as well.

"So that settles it." Yuudai decided. "With two goddesses, a powerful scroll, and a young girl having been taken by these people, it is obvious that we must all go to Alaska as soon as possible. And the Roman boy clearly has a connection to who I assume must be one of the culprits of these thefts. So he will come too." She nodded, very certain of herself. "Valkyrie, I want you to work with the small fluffy Greek Nike boy to keep the Roman in line."

“I’m not fluffy,” Owen protested again, touching his hair. Maybe it was kinda fluffy.

Mindy furrowed her eyebrows. “Me?” she asked. “I, um...I don’t know that I want...” She faltered. The magician lady seemed to know what she was doing, even if Mindy didn’t like her very much.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 02:38:32 AM

“I did, I did,” Mindy confirmed, running a thumb across the edge of her pocket. “But...I have a whole life at home.” Maybe that was insensitive to say in front of Kelsey, but there it was. “Rochester was one thing, but I don’t know if I can go to Alaska.

Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 06:35:55 AM
Mindy squinted at him. “Yeah?” she said “Don’t you? Or are you dead, too?” She had no idea if magicians were dead like enheirjar were, but the guy didn’t look dead. Then again, neither did Kelsey.

“Thanks,” Owen grumbled. He tried to no avail to flatten down his hair.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 08:08:30 AM
Yuudai seemed confused.
"What do you mean 'dead'?" She asked.

"I think she means, do you think I walk around in a WW1 army uniform for fun and recreation?" Kelsey asked, a good-natured smile on his face as if he didn't understand why people wouldn't have assumed him to be dead sooner.

Yuudai took a few steps away from Kelsey, who seemed to then realize why being dead wouldn't be a fun thing to share and looked down guiltily.
Yuudai was silent for a bit before speaking again to Mindy.
"No, magicians aren't dead."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 10:04:15 AM
“And you don’t have lives?” Mindy asked confusedly. “Like, family? And school? And regular friends? And teenage drama that seems kind of irrelevant when you hang out with dead people half the time?” Maybe she was projecting a bit with that last one. Her point stood.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 10:16:45 AM
Yuudai shook her head.
"Magicians like Sebastian and I live in places called Nomes. I don't know about him, but in my Nome in Tokyo, all that the magicians there have to worry about is each other and their magic. My family and I dont keep in contact, my schooling came from the other magicians in the Nome, and I never made friends."

"Sounds lonely." Kelsey observed, now feeling kind of guilty about dragging Mindy away from her own life.

"Shut up." Yuudai snapped. "It's not lonely. It's just not brimming with the distractions that you have." She waved her hand in Mindy's direction. "Perhaps going without those distractions will be beneficial."

Yuudai rolled her eyes.
"And your Nome was stolen from by Jean-Luc Delacroix. I wonder if your Nome's demographic had anything to do with its poor security?"
She looked at Mindy with a lack of empathy.
"I wasn't telling you to give it up forever. I just think perhaps getting away from your regular person distractions to, I don't know, save humanity would be a better idea than staying at home working on your school and drama."

"She can make her own decision. Not everyone wants to be forced into things that put them in danger. Or really, no one does!" He continued, getting more heated.

Mindy started to get angry, but shut her mouth and withdrew a bit when the guy with the braids started talking. “I’m just saying I need time to think,” she said quietly. Though if going to Alaska meant going with this lady, Mindy was getting less and less inclined to it.

"She can make her own decision. Not everyone wants to be forced into things that put them in danger. Or really, no one does!" He continued, getting more heated.

Yuudai seemed indignant.
"Are you really trying to get mad at me for that now??" She hissed. "I tried to explain things but you refused to listen!"
She seemed ready to stomp in anger.
"How could a Valkyrie not recognize the importance of this? Shouldn't creatures associated with war and death recognize how important this is?"

Mindy started to get angry, but shut her mouth and withdrew a bit when the guy with the braids started talking. “I’m just saying I need time to think,” she said quietly. Though if going to Alaska meant going with this lady, Mindy was getting less and less inclined to it.

Kelsey walked over to Mindy.
"I'm sorry about that Japanese lady." He said softly, looking at the ground. "I shouldn't have dragged you into this. I'm sorry for that, too. You can go if you want to. There isn't anything wrong with that. You deserve to make that decision for yourself."

“Thanks, Kelsey,” Mindy murmured, carefully avoiding eye contact with the magician. She wasn’t wrong. That was the problem. This was way more important than Mindy’s mortal life, or her weird fantastical one, for that matter. But why did that mean she had to do something about it? Valhalla was full of superpowered heroes! And now she heard there were all sorts of other godly heroes? She was just a tiny part of all that.

Francis waited until everyone's back was turned to him before he quietly backed up, and took off in the opposite direction. He wasn't running from a fight, he told himself. He was escaping capture. Running away was justified when you were escaping from enemies.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 01:33:48 PM
Kelsey turned, eyes widening.
"Uh, guys??" He pointed in the direction of Francis. "That Roman kid is makin' a break for it."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 01:46:19 PM
Owen muttered a curse, let go of his hair, and took off after Francis without much of a plan. Today was just not his day for competence, was it?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 01:57:59 PM
Francis pushed himself to run faster, and pulled an old shelf display down behind him as he ran. Hopefully that would stall his captors, at least for a little bit.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 02:03:21 PM
Owen scrambled to a stop before he barreled into the bookshelf. “Come back!” he shouted in frustration, like that would work.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 02:04:54 PM
Yuudai bit back a curse and ran after Owen and Francis as well, staff held tightly in her hand. Trying to get Francis evenly in her line of sight, she raised her staff and shouted a binding spell: "Tas!", which should bind the target with a rope and immobilize them - That is, if it didn't miss. She prayed to Sekhmet that her spell would hit as she racked her mind for another spell to use while she stopped to avoid the bookshelf.

Kelsey looked at Mindy, then at Seb, then at Julia and Wes, before shaking his head and following after, making relatively good speed due to his time as a soldier but crashing into the bookshelf after passing Yuudai. Ow.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 02:25:37 PM
Francis turned for a split second to see how many of them were after him, and in that second, he tripped. Luckily, though, he didn't fall, and managed to keep going. What ad Pharaoh Samurai shouted at him? He didn't want to find out.

Wes looked over at Julia, raising an eyebrow. "Were we supposed to be watching him, too, or was that just Owen's job?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 02:30:17 PM
Yuudai's eyes filled with rage. Nobody had listened to her, and now look what happened! Not thinking, she aimed for a shelf that Francis was rather nearby and yelled "Ha-di!", causing the shelf by Francis to explode violently.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 02:31:30 PM
"She said it was the Valkyrie and Owen's job. Last I checked, we weren't either of them so..." Julia shrugged and watched as everyone ran off after the Roman. "Should we help?"

Seb watched as they ran off and then just rolled his eyes and sat down, crossing his arms. Regardless if they caught him or not, with or without his help, Yuudai would probably yell at him. So why bother?
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 02:34:49 PM
"All right, so not our job, then." Wes turned to Serb and asked, "So, she's always like this, huh?"

Francis was knocked off his feet by the explosion, and a piece of the shelf hit him square in the chest as he fell, taking the breath out of him. He tried to push himself back up, but there was a searing pain in his ribs now, and he'd dropped his gladius.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 02:39:30 PM
Yuudai didn't seem ready for her anger rampage to finish - Aiming for the ground around Francis, she commanded: "Se-kebeb!"
Ice began to cover the floor around Francis in some attempt to further immobilize him.

Kelsey stepped over the fallen bookshelf, now actually also concerned about Francis' well-being after that explosion.
"Are you alright?" He asked as he jogged towards Francis. "Are you hurt?" The soldier never liked explosions too much, for obvious reasons. Slowing down as he approached the icy area, he held his hands up to show he was unarmed.
"Are you okay?" He repeated.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 02:42:26 PM
"Since I've met her, yeah. Which hasn't been long," Seb shrugged.

Julia looked over when the explosion sounded, jumping to her feet. "That didn't sound good," she said, a bit nervous now.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 02:42:43 PM
Owen stopped running to stare at the magic lady, eyebrows furrowed. “Wasn’t that a bit much?”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 02:47:00 PM
Yuudai screeched in frustration and turned to face Owen with an intense glare.
"I was just making sure he didn't escape, which you failed to do!" She hissed. Realizing her anger, however, she softened her expression and shook her head. "I'm just trying to make sure he doesn't escape. And I have no reason to treat him nicely. Innocent people don't run, boy. He's hiding something."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 02:54:34 PM
Francis met a Kelsey's eyes, but didn't say anything as he reached for his gladius. "I'm just trying to go home," he wheezed. "I wouldn't have to run if you weren't a complete psycho!"

Wes frowned. "No, it didn't." As he stood up, he added, "I don't think he's our enemy."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 03:07:12 PM
Kelsey's expression softened. "Now, lad, let's calm down." He gently tried to reassure Francis. "Let's not get too upset now, that'll just make things worse. I'm sure that lady didn't mean to hurt you, a-and I'm sure that none of us meant to startle or frighten you. We're just confused and, ah, trying to figure things out." He knelt in front of Francis, still holding his hands in front of him to show he was unarmed. "I'll make sure she doesn't do anything like that again, but we need to keep calm right now, okay?"

Yuudai ignored what Francis had to say, crossing her arms and refusing to look at him.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 03:09:10 PM
Owen cocked his head. “I think I’d run if scary-looking people tried to put guards on me.” He didn’t quite know why he was defending the guy. It wasn’t like he trusted him, but the explosions really felt like they were going too far. He glanced at the soldier guy, glad someone seemed to be handling things calmly.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 03:27:53 PM
"I'm not scary looking." Yuudai protested, sound like she couldn't believe Owen had said that to her. "I look perfectly normal."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 03:35:15 PM
Owen spun a finger in the air. “You yell and make things explode,” he pointed out. “I guess that’s scary acting.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 03:39:38 PM
Yuudai frowned.
"You clearly don't understand that sometimes yelling is necessary. And the explosion...How else could I have stopped him? My usual spell didn't work."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 03:46:13 PM
"What will you do to me if I don't?" Francis asked Kelsey, narrowing his eyes.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 04:03:48 PM
"Well, I don't intend on doing anything." Kelsey shrugged. "Truth be told, I don't want to fight you or cause any more hurt. But I don't think you're in any condition to be moving around and getting any more excited." He glanced at the remains of the shelf Yuudai blew up. "And I can't help but worry a bit about what that crazy Japanese lady'll do next should you make a break for it again. You need to rest and calm down. We all do. I'll get my buddy Mindy and maybe some of the others to talk some sense into that girl, but right now we need to not hate each other and focus on getting you some help." Kelsey smiled softly, trying to be reassuring and gentle. "You heard me earlier when I introduced myself, yeah? I'm Kelsey. You can trust me, I don't want to hurt you."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on January 12, 2018, 04:21:44 PM
(Kelsey that’s really sweet but also in Francis’s shoes I would not trust you for a minute)

Yuudai frowned.
"You clearly don't understand that sometimes yelling is necessary. And the explosion...How else could I have stopped him? My usual spell didn't work."
“I don’t know,” Owen admitted with a shrug. “I just thought there were probably steps to take before blowing things up.”
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 12, 2018, 04:31:39 PM
(Does Kelsey at least get points for effort?)

Yuudai snorted as if restricting a laugh. "Well, time to grow up and learn that sometimes, things just have to blow up."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 05:32:03 PM
(Some. We'll give him like, 2 points.)

"I don't believe you." Francis narrowed his eyes even further and pushed himself to his feet. The Pharaoh was still arguing with that one guy. He'd never ice skates before, but today he would learn, he decided. Tentatively, Francis took a step out onto the ice that surrounded him.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 01:35:46 AM
Kelsey bit his lip nervously and stood as well. "Buddy, you're not in any shape ta be movin' around, you know - You could make your wounds worse or get new ones!" He took a careful step towards Francis. "You're gonna make me worry myself to death! You don't have to believe me, but at least believe that you need to stop this running and rest!"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 03:52:05 AM
Francis ignored Kelsey and took another step, but he underestimated how slick the ice actually was, and he slid and fell. His sore side struck the ice first, and then his head - and this time, he did lose consciousness.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 04:39:19 AM
Kelsey's eyes widened and he quickly checked the now-unconscious Francis' pulse and vital signs, ensuring he was still alive before debating whether or not to pick the Roman boy up. Deciding it'd be the best thing to do to prevent any further injuries, Kelsey carefully picked up Francis and turned to cautiously carry him out of the ice area and back to where everyone else was.
"Ah, Roman boy here took a fall." He quietly exclaimed as he found an area he seemed safe - Away from Yuudai - and set Francis down. "That magic lady blew up a shelf and iced the floor. He might have a concussion, or perhaps even some broken ribs. But he's out cold for now."

(Blue, so you want Francis to have a Dream Sequence? Or should I try saving the dream sequences for when everyone's out?)

(I'll save the dream sequence for later! Or you can write a dream for Francis yourself -Unless you want the dream to have connection to the plot!)

Yuudai broke off from her conversation with Owen and followed after Kelsey, loudly protesting: "I only blew the shelf up because the first spell didn't work!"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 02:24:56 PM

"Yeah, I get angry too," Wes muttered sourly, crossing his arms. But punching a kid in the face wasn't to the same level as blowing up a shelf.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 02:47:46 PM
Yuudai huffed.
"Now is not the time to be mocking me!" She yelped.

Kelsey frowned at Yuudai, but said nothing, choosing instead to remain by Francis in case he woke.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 02:57:46 PM
Julia went over to Kelsey and knelt down by Francis with him. "If he's really a demigod, he should be able to have some ambrosia to help his wounds," she said, taking it outnof the bag.

"You can't just blow things up because you're upset!" Seb snapped at her. He pinched the bridge of his nose and took a deep breath, then held his hand up. "Look, we need to all be working together on this, that much is clear. We're not taking prisoners, we're not forcing anyone to do anything, we just need to come to an agreement on the next steps."

Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 03:02:04 PM
(Seb's the real MVP here)

 Kelsey smiled softly.
"Many thanks for the assistance, pal." He glanced at Francis and then at the ambrosia. "Are you sure it'll work on a Roman demigod? I don't want to end up hurting him even more with this if it isn't right."

Yuudai choked back another screech of anger.
"How are we to agree if nobody will listen to me??" She hissed. "This would never have happened if people just obeyed and didn't act like wild animals!"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 03:11:29 PM
(He tries)

"I mean, they're all gods, right?" Julia looked up ay Kelsey before shrugging.

Seb stared at Yuudai and then just shook his head, turning to the others. "Well, we'll need to wait for him," he said, gesturing to Francis. "Once he's alright to go I say we find some form of transport."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 03:26:20 PM
As Francis came to, the first thing he was aware of was the pain in his head. He touched the spot, and saw blood when he pulled his hand away.

Wes rolled his eyes. "We're not your slaves, Marco Polo. You can't tell us what to do."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 03:40:37 PM
"I suppose so." Kelsey nodded before looking back at Francis and realizing he was awake. "Ah! Boy!" He exclaimed, holding up a hand to try and motion for Francis to take it easy. "Don't move around too much, lad - You're hurt. You took a nasty blow to the head. Are you feeling okay?" He looked back at Julia. "Try giving him some of that ambrose stuff, wouldya, buddy?"

Yuudai nodded. "For once, I agree with Sebastian. Transport would be nice."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 03:48:32 PM
"Ambrosia," Julia corrected quietly before she held a small piece of the square out to Francis. "This'll either taste amazing and you'll heal, or your insides will basically burn up. Since you say you're a demigod, you should be okay," she explained, her tone devoid of any emotion.

"Cool. Flying's fastest, but the most expensive so thats out if the question," Seb thought aloud and sat down with his legs crossed.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 03:52:32 PM
"Don't try to scare him like that!" Kelsey sounded like a gently offended mother as his eyes widened in shock. "Why would give him something like that if there's a chance it could kill him?" He asked, his concern growing.

"We could walk on foot. Not fast, but cost-efficient." Yuudai added. "Or we could find a large vehicle. Less expensive but still fast."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 04:00:31 PM
"It's not gonna kill him," Julia rolled her eyes. "But I'm just letting him know."

"We're not going to reach them in time if we walk on foot," Seb frowned. "We could take a bus?"
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 04:02:24 PM
Kelsey didn't seemed reassured.
"Are ye sure?" He asked. "I'm terribly sorry if I seem overdramatic, I-I just want to know."

Yuudai snorted.
"A bus all the way across the country?" She asked. "Foolish."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 04:12:52 PM
(I think the Roman demigods used ambrosia and nectar, right? I can't remember now.)

Francis accepted the ambrosia and ate it slowly. The food tasted like chicken wings once it hit his tongue, and soon he noticed the pain in his chest and head we're diminishing.
"Well, I'm not dead," he said, decisively. Maybe now the orange shirted trio would believe he was actually a demigod like them, even if they did call the gods by the wrong names.

"You gotta better answer, then?" Wes asked Yuudai, narrowing his eyes. "You want us to listen to you so bad, you go figure something out."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 04:16:15 PM
Kelsey sighed in relief.
"You feel better?" The soldier asked. "Nothing burning?"

"I do have a better answer!" Yuudai snapped. "I can hotwire a van. Vans are big and capable of carrying many people, and we don't have to rely on bus fare or bus drivers. All I'd need to do is find a van."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 04:45:38 PM
(Jason had ambrosia, so I think roman demigods can have it but don't use it exclusively.
Oh, and apparently magicians can eat it too)

"See? I didn't kill him," Julia looked pointedly at Kelsey before she stood.

"No way," Seb shook his head. "First off, we'd need like...a church van to fit all of us."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 13, 2018, 11:30:57 PM
Kelsey smiled tightly.
"Thank you, lass." He replied to Julia.

Yuudai crossed her arms and looked away.
"Fine then!" She snapped. "I won't try to help."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on January 14, 2018, 08:09:30 AM
Yuudai was silent for a moment longer.
"There's only eight of us." She spoke up. "A big enough vehicle could easily hold eight people. Not like a 'church van', but...There are 'eight seater vehicles' for a reason. Plus I know how to drive." She hesitated. "I don't like not being the driver, okay?"

Kelsey hesitated, still sitting next to Francis, before speaking up.
"Miss, maybe you should let the fellas who haven't knocked out anyone with an explosion decide." He shyly told Yuudai, who's eyes widened in anger.
"Really?" She snapped. "This is ridiculous! Believe it or not, sometimes I know what I'm talking about!"

(Oh, I'm sorry! Yeah, I was pretty stumped for transportation when planning this as well! Here, I'll write in a better part)

Yuudai huffed.
"Listen, I dont care what you guys think. I would rather find and drive an eight-seated vehicle than place my life in the hands of some bus driver or pilot. It just makes more sense to me."
Kelsey sighed.
"I wasn't trying to insult you, miss, I just -"
Yuudai held up a finger and Kelsey immediately stopped talking, a bit afraid that she was going to blow him up, too.
Yuudai turned heel and walked towards the front exit, saying harshly: "I will be back. And with a vehicle."

With an aggressive slam of a door, she was gone.
Kelsey sighed.
"Sorry." He apologized, though not knowing what he was apologizing for. "I, uh, um...So. Uh, maybe we should, uh, get to know each other peacefully and all now that she's gone!"

"Good ta meet ya, Owen!" Kelsey smiled good-naturedly. "I'm sure I've repeated myself enough times for anyone ta want me dead, but my name is Kelsey Young. I'm a son of Idunn. Uh, I figure perhaps I should add that I haven't spent too much time in the realm of the living for a little over a century, so I'm a little out of it, and I apologize for any sort of misunderstandings about modern things that I might cause." He looked around at Francis, then at Owen, then at Mindy, then at the others in the room. "Ah, sorry, I talk too much sometimes, too."

""An army? Huh," Julia said thoughtfully. "Julia, daughter of Hecate, been going to Camp Halfblood for...a while." She shrugged.

Sebastian tapped his fingers against his arm as he listened. "Uh, I'm Sebastian. Grew up on Akwesasne reservation in New York State, then I moved into Brooklyn House to study the path of the gods a few years ago."

Kelsey seemed confused.
"What's an Akwes-as-ne reservation?" He asked slowly. "And what do you mean study the Path of the Gods? Are you like, in training to become a priest or holy man?" He realized he probably sounded annoying with all his questions and tensed up a bit as he looked down, trying to decide whether or not to apologize.

Sebastian paused, unsure how to explain where he lived. "You can call it the rez," he finally said. "It's an area allotted to my people to live on by the government," he said and shrugged. "And no, I'm not training to do any of that. The Path of the Gods is a way to learn how to be a magician and channel the power of a god."
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 06, 2018, 04:08:59 PM
"A magician, ya say?" Kelsey felt even more confused than before. "Lord, I feel like I'm takin' in more than I can bear right now - I hope ya all don't mind me askin' all these questions, I'm a little out of touch with modern things and -"

Before he could finish, Yuudai swung open one of the entrances. She stared silently for a moment before announcing rather awkwardly:
"I thought about my actions. If I'm going to have any of you listen to me, I clearly need to change my tactics. I understand not many people enjoy my methods or personality, but clearly we're going to need to stick together for this. I spent some time thinking about that and I have decided will be less demanding of you. And I will try to. Not be angry." She looked at Francis and then at Sebastian when saying that last part. "I..." She glanced around again, but seemed to decide against saying 'I'm sorry'. "While I was out, I acquired a vehicle." She raised her hand that wasn't holding the walking stick to show a she was holding car keys. "I counted the seats. It's enough."

Mindy squinted at her suspiciously. “Did you legally acquire this vehicle?”
“Or at least steal it from someone who deserved it?” Owen put in.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 06, 2018, 04:34:43 PM
"No, it was not legal." Yuudai spoke as if that should be obvious. "But the cause outweighs the means. That's the term, isn't it? We need it probably more than the drunk man who had it parked in the handicapped spot in the Denny's parking lot."

"Who's the Denny?" Kelsey asked, confusedly. "Why's his lot so important here?"

Yuudai chose to ignore Kelsey's confusion.
"I'm going to be driving, since I get very unpleasant when I am not driving." She decided aloud. "Do you people have any problems with that?"

"I don't know if I should trust you driving a car - I've seen several nasty deaths involving cars in my time." Kelsey shuddered, remembering Valkyrie-vision and how every single death he'd seen has still effected him negatively.

"Don't talk about that stuff." Yuudai snapped. "I'm driving anyways - I have a suspicion that I am probably one of the only ones here who knows how to drive, anyways. Am I right?" Without waiting for an answer, she motioned towards. "If we're capable, we should leave as soon as possible. I don't think anyone is too hurt, am I correct?" She stared at Francis for a bit before turning again and leaving.

Kelsey looked back at Mindy, then at Sebastian. "Do you folk here actually trust her about this? Think we should, eh, go, or?" The soldier seemed to have a hard time making decisions like this on his own.

Mindy frowned. “I don’t,” she said simply.

Post by: GreyCaboose on February 07, 2018, 10:30:19 AM
(He's a fantastic boy I'm so glad he is loved uvu)

Kelsey laughed nervously. "Me too, heh - She kind of scares me, actually." He sighed. "But all this new stuff is happening so quickly, maybe it's just nerves or something."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2018, 10:39:28 AM
"I don't trust her as far as I can throw her," Sebastian sighed and stood. "But, it's really our only option," he added and put his hands in his pockets.

Julia watched where Yuudai had gone and shrugged. "Whatever," she said unhelpfully and started following Yuudai.

Post by: GreyCaboose on February 08, 2018, 12:04:18 PM
"I guess so..." Kelsey agreed before standing back up again, turning to Mindy. "Suppose we should follow her orders, then." He turned back to Francis. "Do you need any help, friend?" He asked, holding out a hand.

"No, I'm fine," Francis muttered as he pushed himself to his feet. His head was still pounding from his fall, and he wasn't sure he understood the plan, but he was trying to figure it out as they went along.

Wes followed the others out to the van, frowning.
Title: Re: Tapestry (Riordanverse RP)
Post by: GreyCaboose on February 08, 2018, 12:59:28 PM
Kelsey hesitated, wanting to ensure Francis was okay before he himself went. "Alright," He nodded. "But if you need any help I'm here, and, uh-" He hesitated again before shaking his head. He assumed he sounded awkward and nervous, which was exactly how he felt, but.. "Yeah, I'm, ah, here to help."

Yuudai climbed into the driver's side of a large eight-seater van, jamming the keys rather violently into the ignition but not starting the car. The window already rolled down, she leaned out to look at the others heading towards the stolen vehicle.
"I messed with glamour over the license plate so it doesn't look like the stolen one." She explained. "Get in. It is three in the morning, and we must go now. Seb, sit next to me since you're the only person who I know and I only want people i know sitting in the shot-gun seat because if I don't know them they're probably annoying. You're annoying as well, but I know you."
This absolute word jumble made no sense as Yuudai spoke, which she realized .05 seconds after saying it, but there was no going back. No doubling back on what you'd said once youd said it. Yuudai drummed her fingers on the window rim thing of the van before pressing a button to open one of the side doors. Heading across America with a bunch of strangers and annoying people....in a van. She thought to herself. This is not what I expected when my father told me I would do great things one day.

Francis was just steps away from the van when the world suddenly went black, and he collapsed to the ground, unconscious.

Post by: GreyCaboose on February 10, 2018, 02:38:09 PM
(Oh! Are you going to write a dream sequence for Francis, or do you want me to, or do you not want any of that?)

Kelsey's eyes widened, as he was close behind Francis. Oh, no. Quickly getting to his knees to check if Francis was alright, he felt his breathing begin to quicken. "Ah, oh god, oh no, uh, he's down again! He fell!" Francis' name escaping Kelsey's mind, he found himself so incredibly unsure of what to do. There were no orders. What was he supposed to do in this situation? Somebody else, please take the wheel, Kelsey was entirely convinced he was going to crash this parade into a ditch.

The dream began suddenly with a loud screech.

"What do you mean you didn't bring him?" Medea shrieked, arms raising to pull at her hair. "You left my brother behind?"

The red haired woman Medea was yelling at - Ingrid - winced at Medea's words.

"There were complications." Ingrid replied. "I-"

"I know there were complications, Ingrid, that's why my boyfriend is in a hospital bed with a bullet in his gut!" Medea seemed to be losing her cool. "Did I not give you strict instructions to destroy all obstacles? You failed to perform, Ingrid! I should have you killed."

Ingrid looked down guiltily, eyes hidden behind a new pair of sunglasses.

"You're lucky I believe in second chances." A new air of calm rested on Medea now as she relaxed. "After all, I didn't go into all that work to keep you out of jail for nothing."

"You're not mad?" Ingrid asked hesitantly.

"What? No. I'm furious, Ingrid. You got my boyfriend hurt and you left my brother with a bunch of people who are just trying to get in the way of my plans!" Medea shook her head and begun pacing. "I hope they don't hurt him. You know how important family is to me, Ingrid. It hurts knowing that a possible member of my family has turned her back on another. That's not how things work here."

"I'm sorry, 'Dea."

"Don't call me that. It's 'Medea' to you and only Medea unless you manage to get back in my good graces." Medea snapped.

Ingrid nodded silently.

"Now go. Leave. Leave! Let me worry about my real family in peace." Medea ordered. Looking almost like a kicked dog, Ingrid slunk out of the room, head down.

Medea sighed and sat down on a nearby loveseat, raising her hand over her forehead dramatically.

"Can someone please get me an update on Jude? If my future husband dies before the Ascension, there will be hell to pay."

The scene blurred out, replaced by a different one. This one felt less like watching something happen in real life and more like a memory. Someone else's memory.

A blonde boy running through the woods, bruises and blood on his face. A man is yelling in the distance.
"Help me, mama." The boy cries to seemingly no one. "Please, I need to escape."

He trips and cries out, and the scene blurs again. A different memory.

"Come here, child." A smooth, accented voice coos to a naive 3-year-old, who turns to face the speaker and smiles widely, rushing out of view as if running to a parent or friend.

The scene ripples, but the memory is of the same person's.

A woman is screaming for her baby, where is her baby, as the speaker slips back into the darkness of an alleyway out of sight.

Another blur. A different memory.

"You'll always be my best friend." Says a young brown-haired boy. "That's what twin brothers are for."

Another ripple. The same brown-haired boy, now older, is shakingly holding a gun and pointing it directly at whoever's memory this is.

Darkness. Glass shatters. Crunch.

Another blur. Another memory.

"There's no one like you, darling!" Cries the voice of an older man. "Out there, it's not safe! You could die! Nowhere is safe for you, can't you understand?"

The memory fades and ends, replacing itself with flashes of various scenes.

The screech of tires.

"....a daughter of Hecate!"

Guns.

"...You are a Valykrie..."

The victorious cheers of a group of individuals who must have just won something.

"...son of Hestia..."

"The world's a lot bigger than you think."

"Ha-di!"

The roar of a lion.

".....my pills. Someone took them."

The sound of a girl getting punched in the face.

"They're killing us!"

Cheers and chaos echoing through a great hall.

"....went missing..."

"They're killing us, captain, please, I want to go home!"

Glass shattering.

"....magician of Sobek..."

The clanging of swords, accompanied by the playful laughter of a young boy and his sparring partner.

"Please, mama.."

The roar of fire, crackling, burning, consuming,

"...have to amputate.."

"....back to the ancient pharoahs..."

Video game chirps and sounds, loud and reptitive, played late into the night.

A young girl screams shrilly.

The calming scent of several candles, all laid out in a shape. A ritual is happening.

Something snaps. Bone.

Steel on steel.

Game over.

Ha-di.

"Why'd you kill Kelsey? He was playing poker with us, you jerk!"

The scent of a hospital.

"A son of Nike! Huzzah!!"

A girl choking on something - Pills? Too many pills - being forced into her mouth.

"Wesley, what is wrong with you??"

"I have to kill papa, mama."

"August - I didn't mean it -"

"Here, pretty children."

The thick, overwhelming stench of perfume.

"Kelsey! Snap out of it, soldier! We-"

An image appears: An older man, hunched over his desk, a large sword sticking out of the back of his head. The blonde boy steps back and starts to cry.

One sentence is heard, disconnected from this scene.

"I want to be God."

(And that's my dream sequence! You can have Francis wake up whenever, but there it is, the dream! I enjoy including these since I can work in exposition and symbolism and stuff.)
