August Event Log: Part I

Who: Everyone
When: August 9 and onward
Where: An unexpected destination
What: The newcomers go on a trip and end up far from where they expected
Warnings: Potential violence. Please label your content!

NOTE: PLEASE READ THIS OOC POST FIRST.
When the time comes for the travelers to go on the off-world trip that will help restore Thisavrou, they are not alone. Others who have settled on the planets longer and come to call them home are also prepared to travel; through the Ingress and do their part. Yet when the newcomers step through, whether they stepped through the Ingress seconds or hours apart, they will find that they have arrived at the same time, and only newcomers are in sight.


What awaits them is not a land of plenty. The land is barren, and dark storms in the sky resemble those held at bay by the Ingress complex—but much, much closer. Those who traveled on the Moira may recognize the landscape; though they have come through at a different point from the crash, they are on the Midway Hub. And there is no portal back. They are trapped.






hitting the road

Though some have been here before, the Midway Hub is not as they remember it. The storms fill the sky, leaving it dark and ominous even when they are not sweeping across the landscape—but they have clearly done so in recent times, and often. While never a lush land, large patches of ground an acre or more wide looking nothing more than utterly dead; the thistle that naturally grows is brittle, black and unable to be consumed even with the usual preparations to make it edible, and here and there animal corpses are found twisted into unnatural poses, but seemingly uninjured. These places are particularly concentrated near the broken Ingresses litter the landscape. While Midway Hub as a whole may seem naturally arid, these dead spots leave no hope that anything can possibly live there again.

The travelers have two options: stay where they are, or move on. While it might seem that they've been tricked into coming here and been left abandoned, those with the technological ability to do so may detect a sign of hope: a familiar energy source, far in the distance. Although none of the Ingresses they pass will ever work again, the faint energy shows that one still-functioning Ingress lies far in the distance, days away.

Although technological scanning or impressive memory of the landscape indicates that they are not separated from their destination by one of the gates that divide the land, they are also far from the shelter of the facility at the center of the Hub. Any attempt to travel in a direction other than that of the energy signal will result in a strange disorientation after several hours, bringing individuals back to their original path as though they've gone in circles. Meanwhile, though travelers will feel the need to slake their hunger and thirst through any natural water sources they discover, wildlife they can hunt for food and any supplies they have on them, if they don't find sustenance, they'll find that they will never pass out or reach the point of starvation. Instead, they'll be left alive and awake but feeling utterly hollow.

storm front

At regular intervals, the energy storms above descend onto the land, bringing not rain but violent clashes of negative energy and thunder so loud that nothing can be heard above it. The passing of the storms leaves some strange effects. The ground is warped and rotted by their touch, even solid stone degrading to a spongy surface. The air is tepid and oddly charged. Prolonged contact with air or ground will not supply energy, however — it drains it from organic and synthetic life alike.

Those who remember their last trip to the Hub, or simply explore in the right direction, may come across the cave complexes with their glowing surfaces and streams. The light is dimmer now, a sickly green, but drinking from the streams will still restore the energy lost, for a time. This time, however, the lethargy that inevitably follows is much more severe, and the drinkers are left with a raw, empty feeling leeching in from the wasteland around.

Those who are exposed to the storms, either by finding themselves in very close proximity or even closely observing them for too long as they approach, may lose their sight, or hearing, even much of the ability to feel touch — whatever sense they used in observation. What lingers in its place is a numbness. A hunger. And as time passes, the time between storms decreases; what seemed like hours between the storms becomes scarcely one, and their intensity grows.

wild life

Sentient beings are not the only ones affected by the storms; these creatures, attracted to sound and able to track by scent, and these panthers, which once looked normal but have been twisted by the storms into more monstrous forms, are numerous enough that travelers must be constantly alert for their presence. Though natural predators, the threat the creatures represent is not itself natural. They are also more aggressive. Some strange instinct drives them, not a need for food. While the panthers themselves can be caught and their meat cooked, it has little taste, offering nutrition but not satisfaction.

old familiar places

Although it's difficult to track the passage of time without day-night cycles, after what seems like more than a week of the travelers' unexpected trip, the storms abruptly come rushing in at the group of travelers, as if they're herding the group to move faster toward their destination and the Ingress energy that awaits them. The true nature of that destination becomes clear when debris appears on the horizon; the energy comes from the wreckage of the Moira, the interstellar ship that crashed here months ago.

Despite the trauma of impact, large sections of the ship remain surprisingly intact, though few of them are properly vertically oriented. If travelers are able to make their way inside the damaged sections of the ship, they'll find familiar territory, if they are one of those who traveled on the Moira, as well as shelter—something that's increasingly necessary as the storms seem to center over the ship, leaving little hope for survival outside. Useful items may be scavenged from the ship if they are willing to explore, but no personal items of any kind remain.

Strangely, the deeper travelers go into the crashed ship, the less familiar their surroundings will seem, regardless of their orientation. The inward-leading paths into the ship become generic metal, and as with the travel on the surface of the planet, they may find themselves back where they started. And no matter how far they go or how hard they try, they will find themselves unable to make it to the Ingress chamber itself...for now.

Asriel Dreemurr | ota

[personal profile] pleasereset 2017-08-10 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Arrival]



[Asriel's learned to hate space travel. He really has.

When Asriel agrees to go scavenging for resources, it's mostly for a selfish reason. Instead of gathering up resources as a "peace offering", he's mostly just interested in finding plants, vegetables, and other resources to take care of his family. After being told by the Savrii to leave the planet, being told how awful he is and how he's responsible for every thing that's gone wrong on Thisavrou, he doesn't really feel like making up to the Savrii.

But... Chara's garden got ruined by the cold weather, didn't it? Maybe Asriel could bring back a few things to restore it. It wouldn't fix the damage he learned he's done after the Shadows attacked. Nothing would. But at least it would be there for when his family returned home.

... If they do come home.

As it turns out, it doesn't matter anyway. When Asriel steps out of the Ingress, a barren but familiar landscape greets him. He remembers this place well - it's where he tried to shatter his own disk.

When he turns back to find out what happened, the way back to Thisavrou is gone. Asriel can only stare in dull shock as he slowly starts to realize they're trapped here. The Savrii wantd them gone, and they succeeded in getting rid of them.]


They... they tricked us.

[Caves]



[Food and water have to come from somewhere, and as much as Asriel doesn't want to, he decides to investigate the caves in hopes of some kind of food or water. He doesn't really find any food, but there's water to drink from after a while of searching. And for a while, it cures both his thirst and hunger.

But after a while, his body feels heavy. He feels so incredibly tired.

... Maybe he can sleep here, for just a little bit. It had to be safer in here than the storms outside, right?

Maybe not. But he leans against a cave wall anyway, and lets himself drift off.]


[Hunting/Scavenging]



[Asriel isn't a hunter by any means. He's never really had to find his own food before. But even if no one here can actually starve to death, the aching in his stomach from not eating sends him on an anxious search for food.

He turns over rocks, looking for anything even slightly edible. So far he hasn't really found anything. He's seen an occasional panther in the distant before quickly moving in the other direction, but he's not really sure if he could bring himself to...

... Well, in any case, he's not going to let himself starve here.

He won't go through that ever again.]

Arrival

[personal profile] yorisearching 2017-08-11 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Yori recognizes the rocks of Midway all too well, remembers being uncertain whether the invitation would bring the lost crew any respite or only a fast imprisonment. And now--

Is this on purpose? What chance is there that the Ingress simply malfunctioned...for all the newcomers...at the same time? Or could there be any forgivable reason the Savrii have turned on them? An outside force?

The Ingress is unpredictable enough that she can't read either possibility at zero. But she can't make any kind of reassuring argument for hope, either.

Asriel's flat, desolate voice is the one that penetrates her frantic calculation. What can she say? She hurries through the crowd to kneel beside the small pilot.]


It looks that way.

[She reaches to offer a hug, if Asriel is in any condition to accept it. At least they're all together. Things could be a lot worse.]

deal_me_in: (I did a lot of shooting that day)

Cayde-6 | OTA

[personal profile] deal_me_in 2017-08-10 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
     For the record? Cayde hadn't trusted a thing the Savrii had said. They were already clearly hiding things from them, whether out of simple neglect or on purpose, and he hadn't been particularly impressed by their inability to repair the Ingress. And then there were the things he'd heard from 76, which only further convinced the Exo that he was completely justified in his distrust.

     Yet somehow it seemed everyone was going. To a peaceful world, eh? There's no such thing, in Cayde's mind. That alone has made him suspicious. He's pretty sure he's not the only one paranoid about the whole venture, but he's also not sure just how many people the Savrii are sending out. Just how many people have been drawn through the Ingress? And how many of those are equipped for dealing with any trouble? ...dangit he better not end up playing babysitter. It'd be like Tower duty all over again.



Arrival

     "Where the hell are we?! Peaceful and abundant my shiny little backside!"

     The first words coming out of the Exo's mouth hardly seem to underline the exact distress of their situation. His tone however drips with all the distrust that he's held in the Savrii's words. Blue optics scan the bleak horizon, what can be made out of it for how dark and...dead everything appears. It made Europa looked like a vacation resort.

     "Cayde, those structures...." The red and gray Ghost looks around, its blue lens about the only brightest thing aside from Cayde's own eyes in contrast to the dark landscape surrounding them. "They look familiar- Could it be..? But there are so many...!"

     "So many what?" The Exo glances at his Ghost.

     "...Ingresses...."

     If he could frown, Cayde would, but somehow he seems to convey the idea with what bits move around his optics alone. "I got a bad feeling about this."



Moving On

     The Ghost had picked up a faint energy reading. Of course it had to be nowhere near where they've all been left stranded, and Cayde's got no qualms about going to check things out. That's part of the job description anyway, and in a place where there's absolutely nothing else around and the skies look near ready to tear apart whatever might be caught beneath it? Yeah. He's moving.

     As a Hunter he's used to working alone. Scoping out things ahead. Heck, just keeping moving. His favorite gun's in hand, a Guardian in his element. His Ghost is unseen, merged with the Hunter to give directions and warnings internally. Less to worry about, especially if the storms build up any time soon. He really doesn't like the look of those skies.

     Maybe you catch up with him. Maybe he catches up with you. Either way, Cayde won't be adverse to the company, and if you look like you're struggling, he might just end up conveniently hanging around within your vicinity. You know. Just in case.

     Hunger isn't something he usually needs to worry about, his Exo body resilient in such aspects, but there's something else that drags at him, and he can feel it gnawing away the longer they carry on. The Ghost has sensed it too, his concern voiced but unheard by anyone save for Cayde. "...we keep moving. We're still heading in the right direction, right?"


Where the Wild Things Are

     It's both a relief and not, seeing that there are some manner of lifeforms in this bleak place. And after periods of nothingness interspersed with dodging storms, Cayde's all too happy for some stress relief. Okay, he just wants to shoot something. He might just be imagining Savrii as he opens fire with his handcannon, his Ace of Spades flaring with each shot. Some of these things look way too close to Thrall. Although that suits him just fine. Just more incentive to blow their ugly faces away. Not that he needs the incentive.

[personal profile] sleepdarts 2017-08-10 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
If the situation had any form of humour in it Ana might have chuckled, but this time Cayde will have to live with a silent agreement. Ana also doesn't trust the Savrii, and though she's had a few unpleasant thoughts about this place since her arrival here their actions have only intensified that belief as of late.

"A smart feeling." At least he'd be ready when something happened, and he's already prepared for the worst.

There's a slight nod as Ana steps next to him, giving him a quick glance before assessing the scene in front of them.

"Though I might not have felt good about what they promised either." Not with the way that everyone was herded together and encouraged to go out.

surprise destination - open to all.

[He's not exactly happy to play along, but strained relations or not Miller does see the necessity for the mission. The events of the past months have resulted in heavy losses for everyone, Ingress refugees and Savrii locals, and much of the time Kaz does favor the benefit of the group as a whole regardless of tensions. That's why he doesn't even argue the necessity to go on a supply run; he'd paid people to do so before and understands that they're in need.]

[He shuts down his restaurant, sends Mama to a nice kennel (expecting a fairly prompt return but he pays them a month's worth of time), and packs up any hunting/gathering necessities before going. He's still in productive spirits when they're sent.]

[But are they doing anything actively useful? Not at all. Instead, a half-hour after their arrival Kaz is finding himself breaking brittle thistles apart to find them barren. Seems like they even made them leave with the hope of finding food, and he brought little more than emergency water and some smaller protein bars. Kaz is going to have to improvise.]

You don't remember having been here, do you?

[He says to someone nearby. He's hoping that one Ingress with the slime is around or that cave with the odd colored liquid or they'll be really hard up for water.]



the moira - open to all.

[Months ago Kaz walked through the wreckage of the ship in search of a young body and relics of their past. It's barely recognizable as that wreckage to him now. In fact, that's the most disorienting thing he's experienced since getting here.]

[He remembers the tall ceilings that could accommodate huge robots, the telltale signs of habitation here and there, but everything is disorientingly impersonal. There's no personal items, no signs of a good year of their lives. To him? This feels more like they'd violently dismembered that example ship based on the Moira rather than on the Moira herself. He wonders, again, what happened to the captains that once worked at the Midway Hub.]

[Between Kaz's inability to succumb to what's now an aching stomach and the ferocity of a dehydration headache, his suspicions are growing in strength. He can't quite put a finger on it yet. Not real seems too easy but he wouldn't put it past them for a first guess.]

No wonder the Savrii have managed to force integration in the past. [He's grumbling to himself. There are debris that are useful, though. He walks up to someone, carrying a found coiled nylon rope to help with climbing over his shoulder.] Help me look around for supplies.

[Desolation and on a dying world, Roland wonders if this is his eternal fate in life. Ka has a humorlessly funny way of working and as soon as he asks himself the question he knows it's true. So long as he can walk he will be walking amongst ruins.

The question snaps him out of his reverie and he looks to his side at the man with the odd sunglasses. He thinks of Jake's sunglasses, far too big for his young face, and bitterness and love inside him rival the storm brewing in the sky.]


No.

[Roland says this only after a long moment of thought, trying to remember if he had been on this world before. The look of it doesn't match Mid-World but the feel of it certainly does.

He stands with one boot on a rock, his thumbs hooked in the matching gun belts crossing above his crotch, his wide-brimmed hat pulled low over his brow. Roland watches the storm but looks away as the lightning begins to crackle. The storm's a bad sign he'll reckon. Roland looks to his unknown companion instead.]

yorisearching: (afraid)

Yori | ota

[personal profile] yorisearching 2017-08-10 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
hitting the road

The pangs of betrayal are sharp. Yori feels them as keenly as anyone else.

But there's nothing she can do about that. What she can do is hand out granola bars and chocolate, bottles of water and bottles of juice, from her long-hoarded supply in the old Moira pac-disc. How familiar.

She's brought it out one sackful at a time to hand to Users who complain about hunger. They might as well start out on a more hopeful note than starvation.

It's not like she can eat any of it herself. Despite her careful attention to fill and store one battery after another, they won't last forever. She'd like everyone to work together at least until she runs out of time herself. She's noticed Users don't focus very well if they run out of their own messy energy. Hard to blame them.

This journey is far too familiar.



storm front

a: When rest becomes unavoidable, curled into a worried ball of armor, Yori feels the strange thunderous surges of the storm even as she tries to rest. Without conscious direction she seeks the pattern in her sleep.

She wakes numb, a hungry absence where warmth should be.

It feels a little like she's low on energy, but charging from her reserve battery doesn't help. She's not even sure how much she needs, and stops too soon rather than risk damage.

She goes in search of a familiar face, a moment's comfort, but her half-numb feet betray her into a full-length fall. Yori stays there a moment.


b: Later, the risks have become obvious. At the first hint of thunder growling from the horizon, Yori wraps an old shirt around her head and tries hard not to look up. She can't lose more. She can't become more of a burden on everyone else. And yet how can she focus on anything except analyzing the oncoming danger?

One step at a time. She can't feel very much, but she can still see the ground. If she stays cautious.

Inevitably she runs into someone else. "Sorry," she calls between thunderclaps. Distraction might be a good thing in this case.


old familiar places

Despite everything, Yori's happy to see the sad bulk of the Moira. At least it's a change from the wandering. She remembers the ship fondly, crashes and all.

On the other hand, they abandoned Moira because none of them could find any way forward then. She's not certain anything has changed.

She tries to examine the wreck for signs of change or any hint of a new idea. She does find Navigation, her function for months, but every screen is smashed and dark. Yori frowns sadly at the computers, worlds destroyed, and wonders how long before the last of the crew follows.

"You did your best," she murmurs to the lingering memory of programs she'd never had a chance to meet face to face.

[personal profile] notglitching 2017-08-11 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
He'd been by her apartment three times in the last two user-weeks. The first two, Yori had been out. The third, resting. Rinzler had hesitated outside the door for long micros before moving on. He'd run into her eventually. She didn't need to know now.

This wasn't where Rinzler had expected. Certainly, it wasn't how. His own scans of the clouds had been staggering in their silence: not the surge and crackle of life-giving power pushed to an extreme, but an aching drain of energy raw and painful just to read. He doesn't notice the empty echo it leaves in his perceptions when he turns away.

Not until he finds the blue-lit body slumped across the ground. Not until he tries to sense her, tries to check—and reads nothing, functions returning null null {} all around.

"Yori—!"

Harsh and panicked isn't the tone Rinzler had intended for his first words to Yori since acquiring his voice. It's certainly what she'll be hearing, though—along with some very rapid steps.

inconsequence: (expecting you to be a certain way)

chara | ota | will match formats

[personal profile] inconsequence 2017-08-10 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
arrival; i wait in intermission, i remove inhibition / it's not safe to seek the attention
They will not protest, when the order is issued. The threat of intermediaries still hangs slick and heavy like a storm cloud, gathering thickly at the corners of their vision. As much as they would favor an imminent denial, just to be contrarian, the risks fall farther than the benefits.

Do they not always?

Slinking through an Ingress at long last, unaccompanied for the first time since their dreadful error, since they allowed Shepard to lead them so horribly astray (ha ha), the world opens to them in a panorama of storm-blasted, gray-dust wasteland. The fingertips at their side twitch - scarred, blistered, bandaged, pocked, and bandaged again. The Knife slips from its sheath, held steady, wary, even.

They'd emptied the house of its necessities when they'd gone; most are now couched in the pack that hangs from their back. Packages of seeds, unplanted. A book. A potted plant too fragile to be stuffed in and zipped up, and so is clasped in their hands with a sort of grim resolve. It snaps at the empty air idly, here and again.

There is nothing for it to eat in the ashen waste. And for the first time in perhaps, longer than they care to remember - the child is alone.

Well and truly.

They feed their plant handfuls of cinder-like dirt and let it nibble at the hangnails that redden the tips of their fingernails. They've no attachment to the Moira, and they do not happen near it. It is not their loss to mourn.

It never was.
storm; i awaken with the thunder / a bold statement to end my slumber
[The bright crack of lightning shrills across contours of memory, bolting them awake in the chilled fraction of a second. They'd opened fire and it sprayed dust behind their combined, battered body, and their joined SOULs had trembled like moths trapped with flypaper. The hot stench of cordite, the sound of someone yelling for a shotgun, because that beast had killed the child - as though any of them cared for the hideous, bloodied smear of a thing curled in the monster's arms! As if, as if - ]

[They've sat up, bolt-straight, their heart pounding a rapid cadence in the hollow of their chest. Their fingertips have worked around the golden shape of the Locket, twining into the spool of the chain. It does nothing to ease the hot drum of their own blood against their veins.]

[It's...]

[...]

[Ha ha.]

[It's just thunder.]

[It's nothing at all. It's nothing to be freaking out about. The child laughs, and the sound hitches like an empty, broken recording; something as false and plastic as the smile plastered to their cheeks.]

[It is only when they begin to laugh that they realize that no sound is issuing from their throat.]

[Whatever words they might have intended to say aloud will no longer come; they are rendered mute, and will remain so for the days to come. Hollow.]

[Hollow.]

[Hollow.]
wildlife; i don't need any protection, and this beast is interjecting / and this SOUL can't help but connect it
But they can still FIGHT.

Their eyes burn with an unbridled rage, smoldering bright and scarlet. They care very little, what it is they are facing - whether it is a mutant panther or a faceless thing with far too much keratin in its fleshy maw than is typical. It will see the end of a Knife either way, from an atypically silent figure. A green sweater striped with a single blaze of yellow down the middle marks their identity as well as the flare of brown hair or of the pair of scarlet eyes, though the rain and dust have darkened and dampened nearly every inch of them to something far less immediately recognizable.

All but the eyes.

The eyes, those are the same.

Unfortunately.
wildcard; so don't lead, i won't follow / there's no sense in waiting for tomorrow
[If you want a closed starter let me know and we can fix something up! Chara's mostly avoiding a lot of their close/positive CR for various reasons following the shadow event, but if you wanna try and make something work we can!]
lavelly: (talk to nobles)

storm, also i have no willpower

[personal profile] lavelly 2017-08-11 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[Maybe it will life Chara's spirits to know that they're not the only ones suffering a detriment from the storm. Or not.

Either way, Lavellan has no idea of it himself, when one robs him of his sight. He realizes what's happened much more quickly and much more spectacularly, as he almost immediately loses his balance trying to find a rock or tree or something to brace himself against, and spits out a curse from surprise and pain.

There's a good chance he'll trip over Chara if they're not careful, as complete and sudden as his blindness is. He hadn't gotten his bearings beforehand, and he doesn't remember the direction of the rest of the group; all he can do is grope clumsily in front of him as he tries to make his way back.]

unfair punishment.

[Yondu never had a reason to trust the Savrii. He could play along fine. Sure, in a new spot? He'll work with it, yeah.]

[But then those piece of shit motherfuckers trick them into dropping into some sort of off planet shithole even though anyone new didn't do anything. By Savrii judgment he guesses someone could pop out of their mama, fresh from the oven, and be guilty of murder!]

[Yondu is looking pretty pissed off as he walks through the barren Midway Hub wasteland. Animals laying around, flesh things curled up like corpses of insects. No food or water to be seen. Just dead soil with dead things on it.]

Homey place y'all had here. [He's caught wind from mutterings and conversations around him this is somewhere some people had been before, but he's short on the long-version of the story.]


storms and caves.

[There's another one of those creatures following someone. Luckily, not him this time. Thank heavens. But right before it can pounce, someone'll hear the whoosh of a flying arrow, perhaps a streak of red out of the corner of their eye, and some soft, melodic whistling.]

[He drops that predator, tearing a hole through it easily, and catches the arrow by his head.]

Another one o' them storms is comin' and I think we better get in them caves.

[Red is not handling any of this well. Up until the last day on Cloudbank her life had been uneventful, cozy even, with plenty of pizza from Junction Jan's and any color of sky she wanted. Now she's starving, she's cold, at least she has some decently sensible boots and jeans thanks to Ahab. She feels miserable but she's doing her best to stay positive.

She had gotten separated from most of the others and Red felt as if she were on her last legs, barely able to keep upright.

She's not used to wild animals either. Red doesn't know she's being hunted until it would have been too late. The whistle is what alerts her to anything at all, and she ducks down and falls onto one hip with wide eyes and watches in horror as the creature is felled with one bright streak of red.

Red looks up from the place she's fallen to the source of the whistling and is immediately relieved by all that blue skin.]


Mr. Udonta! Oh thank my lucky stars.

a. GLORIA, I THINK THEY GOT YOUR NUMBER. (STORMFRONT.)

[ After the first time losing the sensation in his remaining arm, Venom learns not to approach the crash of thunder or acknowledge it aside from the vague tremor he occasionally feels from the ground up, rattling his teeth from where he has his electronic cigarette clamped between his lips. It's exhausting, it's irritating, it's too much— the steady crash of punishment that rains down on them makes him feel like he's constantly swallowing dirty water, crushing gravel on his molars with each breath.

At the very least, he has experience on his side. He's done this before, the whole song-and-dance of crouching knee-deep in shit and mud, smelling like trash and rotting carcasses until he doesn't remember what air tastes like. He can tolerate it, the slog of nausea and hearing loss, the disorientation and fatigue.

He's not sure that the others are so amenable, though.

In the event that he runs across anyone struggling with their eyes or ears or sanity, he'll pull closer to them and offer a hand, a look, a side to lean on.
]

...Keep moving. Can you walk?


b. I THINK THEY'VE GOT THE ALIAS THAT YOU'VE BEEN LIVING UNDER. (OLD FAMILIAR PLACES.)

[ This is suspicious.

The more Venom travels, the less he believes what he's seeing— not the pathways, not the metal lining the halls, not the chambers that he finds intact. This isn't the first time that his memories aren't aligning with reality, though, so he's not alarmed as much as he feels vaguely sick; he can't trust the tiling under his feet, and vertigo hits him like a freighter.

He takes a step back, away from another incongruity that twists his features into a frown. Somewhere along the way, he bumps into someone: whoever he runs into, he'll turn and fix a sharp, searching eye on them before he lets the tension ebb from his shoulders in increments.
]

...Something isn't right.

[ Straight to business. ]

c. BUT YOU REALLY DON'T REMEMBER: WAS IT SOMETHING THAT THEY SAID? (WILDCARD.)

( obligatory wildcard option! let me know if you want me to set something up specifically for you, homie— feel free to PM me at my journal, or shoot me a PP at [plurk.com profile] deuil! )

[personal profile] alterplex 2017-08-10 12:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[ It looks like they're fated to meet like this: one of them unsteady on his feet, fighting the elements while trying to remain inconspicuous. Venom spots Lavellan careening in his peripheral, identifies Lavellan immediately because his previous circumstances left such a lasting mark.

He's by the familiar slump of those shoulders before they can topple, catching Lavellan mid-step before it can lurch into a stumble.
]

—Hey.

[ Taciturn, as per usual. The concern bleeds through that single syllable, regardless. ]

You okay?

(WILDLIFE) in these killing fields

[john hasn't trusted an organized body of civilization with a ruling government for decades. therefore, when he arrived on thisavrou and discovered that the savrii were Peaceful, didn't have a militant force, and relied instead upon a force called Intermediaries, he couldn't have trusted them less. so, to say he's not surprised about getting press-ganged into going to work on some planet, then said planet being a wasteland meant to kill them, is an understatement.

even if he wasn't exactly expecting to get ported off to some hell-hole. but you make do.

while this isn't exactly charted territory for big boss, he's not about to sit around and wait to die. walking off in any ol' direction had quickly (okay, maybe not quickly, unless you consider several lost hours of time expedient) shown him that whatever he was walking to was his Final Destination. especially after the second time of coming back around to a familiar rock formation, marking it, and then determining he was going in circles. with a General Direction figured out for him, the only things left to worry about were water and food. luckily for him, he was paranoid after decades of conducting a shadow war against a british man with a love of james bond villainy, so that meant he, at least, had starting supplies. some basic provisions, first aid, etc.

which meant that hunting his first panther? had honestly just been for sport. when there's nothing to do except survive and walk, learning to kill the local, homicidal fauna is never a bad choice. of course, that also meant going after the tooth-faced creatures would have to happen and he was never one to turn down a challenge.

that's where a stumbling refugee comes into play. maybe they were hungry, maybe they were curious, john doesn't know. what he does know is that they've practically walked right into the bait trap, a pile of fresh panther limbs, he's set for one of those alien monsters. and they're about five seconds away from getting themselves killed.

so he hurls a small stone out from behind the rock-formation he's currently hiding behind, hoping they'll get the message.]

[the last week had been A Struggle. actually, the last few days. the first part of the week had been absolutely fine. of course, after you lose your eyesight due a freak storm and have to stumble around in the dark, trying to find the ability to hear a pin drop so you wouldn't get eaten alive, days tend to get hard. how he hasn't died thus far, john honestly didn't know.

it's the din of voices and the scratching of footwear against the planet's dry and dead surface that finally leads him to the moira. or, well, what he hears is the moira. it's all anyone can talk or ask about once they arrive upon the behemoth structure. plus, the loud echo of footsteps on metal is a little bit of a giveaway that it's definitely something.

whether by help or by his own fortitude, along with a makeshift 'cane' that is definitely made from the bone of Something, john manages to find his way around. or, well, he definitely doesn't stumble into a wall or a doorway that's on its side or pieces of the warped ship sticking out. it's a minor miracle. he's almost glad he can't see the destruction; something that had taken the life of a kid and his dog.

when exploring turns out to be as productive as trying to go 'off-roading' on the planet, the old soldier, missing one eye completely and blind in the other, finds somewhere to hole up, check his inventory, and wait for the inevitable bad news.]


(CAST) catch me if i go

[he's makin a list, checkin it twice, gonna find out who's dead or fine, big boss is gonna find you.

whether traveling out in wasteland city or exploring the moira, john will be on the 'lookout' for those familiar faces from his own homeworld. the catch is, he's blind, so it's less of a lookout and more of 'hey, i hear a voice i recognize'. wanna avoid him? silence is golden.]

[Roland isn't so much watching the man stagger around (stagger isn't the right word, the man is being careful, taking his time, using all of his senses, and Roland gives him credit for each one of these things) as he is listening to him. This world is much more natural to him than Kauto and it might be bizarre but he can survive much better here. No water? No problem. No food? No problem. No shelter? No problem.

The Gunslinger is in his element here. That doesn't mean it's close to ideal for him but rather he's not really worried and having to fend for himself is so far beyond second nature by this point it's more natural than soft beds and take-away food. His old back hadn't even known what to do with the mattress in the hotel on Kauto.

Roland's standing nearby perfectly still, his dextrously long fingers carefully rolling tobacco in a tidy little cigarette. When the stranger sets himself down in the protected overhang of the destroyed ship nearby to him, Roland finally looks over. The stranger begins checking his gear and again, the Gunslinger's impressed. This man isn't soft like most of the others.

He carefully licks the paper to seal the cigarette shut before he speaks up.]


Long days, Sai. Want a smoke?
