thousandcurses: (♤ Fog ⇨ Stagnant Air)

The fog descends

Characters: EVERYONE
Format: Whichever you guys choose!
Summary: SHADOW EVENT IS LIVE! But basically, Izanami sends out her fog and that creates Shadows that then cause trouble
Warnings: LOTS of personal issues!!!

[Disappointment. Izanami had never felt it as strongly. To watch the other residents struggle with themselves, with the parts they deny, strength faltering. It's too much. So, the goddess has decided, it's time for them to receive a little push.

She'd gone to the cafeteria in the dead of night, just around when midnight would be. And then it's simple--to just allow the fog to spill out and cover the tower, filling every nook and cranny it can find. With it will come the Shadows, and her fellow prisoners will be forced to face themselves and grow, realize their potential or die.

It will certainly be interesting to watch.]

[[OOC: There will be threads for the days of the week! You CAN tag outside of this with Shadow stuff, though. This is just to make all the beginning things nice and tidy!]]

Eridan Ampora [OU]

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[There's certainly a different Eridan out there today. If anything, it's the Eridan that everyone wants him to be. Kind, actually accepting of others. Willing to go great lengths to help out others in need. It's incredibly, incredibly phony. Especially if you have something he wants. Or are someone he wants. There are two things Eridan Ampora would never admit to: using his friends, and actually caring about those lower than him in some fashion.]

Hey, kid.

[Lancer calls to the random goblin/fairy creature/whatever.]

You have any idea what's with this "Beefy Bachelor" thing?
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 08:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[Eridan's shadow just smiles at him, nodding "no."]

I don't have any clue what a Beefy Bachelor is! Do you need anything?
puppy_lancer: (dog)

[personal profile] puppy_lancer 2012-09-06 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah, not really.

[He looks at the thing curiously.]

What are you exactly, kid?
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yes, Eridan keeps up his smile. Normally, he'd be tired of explaning it. Because these idiots just don't get it....]

I'm a troll, from Alternia. And consider yourself lucky, as I am of royal blood, you can consider me an ambassador!
puppy_lancer: (normal)

[personal profile] puppy_lancer 2012-09-07 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[He shrugs. For him, royalty, especially the type not from his homeland, is nothing special. He's met plenty of them...and offended plenty of them. Besides, in this place, isolated from their original homes, most people were equal.]

[What is interesting, though, is the mention of the ambassador role.]

Didn't know humans had dealings with Phantasmal species.

[After what happened the day before, Feferi wants to keep a low profile. Stick with people she knows, all of that. So when she sees Eridan, she gives him a tired wave before approaching.] Sorry about yesterday...
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[Shadow!Eridan waves back, surprisingly chipper]

It's okay, no hard feelings! I did deserve it after all!
cullscuttlefish: (I wanna be where the people are)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
You didn't deserve that. Nobody deserves that kind of thing. Don't say things like that.

[Sure is a bouncy way of saying it. Weird.]
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, after everything I've done an' all, I would certainly say I deserve it. I've acted harshly in the past, Fef, an' for that I apologize. I've certainly given you a whale a' trouble.
cullscuttlefish: (she’s just not herself)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 09:28 pm (UTC)(link)
No. You didn't.

If you're beating yourshellf up because of what happened before, then don't. It's in the past. Home's not there anemonemore.
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 09:33 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I insist. I failed you as a moirail, and most certainly as a friend. I just never could find the right time to tell you what happened after your point in the timeline. It's hard to do, an' I'm certain you understand. I would not want to destroy hope, not in the least.
cullscuttlefish: (o)( nooooo)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
...that was back then. Yesterday was different.

[There's a long pause. Something's not right.]

I'm still curious about what happened, but I'm not shore why you're dredging it up right now. Did somefin happen to make you think now's the right time?
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 09:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I've wanted to air it out between us. You did say you needed to trust your moirail, after all! It's just been eatin' at me and I would be so hurt if you found out through someone else! After what you've been through, I don't want to see you go through any more, even if it's at the cost a' friendship or anythin' a' the sort.

cullscuttlefish: (she sure is acting fishy lately)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I did say that.

[But something still feels off.]

...if you're sure that now is the right time to air it out, then...I'm listening.

[Even if she feels awfully unsure.]
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[The shadow loses some of its cheer. This is a serious topic, after all]

Well, I got upset. In my deepest moments of despair I tried to go ally myself with Noir to at least, save myself. I wanted to take you with me, but you got upset and refused. Sollux got involved, an' I fought him. Thought I killed him, too. Naturally, you sprung into action, attempting to fight me as well and well...

I killed you.

I went after Kanaya too... shot her with my science and destroyed the matriorb. It was all a blur, my feelin's were a mix a jealousy an' despair an' above all... I was wrong.

I'm sorry I didn't mention it to you before, Fef. If there is anyhting I can ever do to make it up to you, please, don't hesitate to let me know.
cullscuttlefish: (consequence takes its toll)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 10:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Feferi is silent as Eridan speaks. It all rings true, in a way that makes her stomach turn. The - so calm it's eerie - tone in which it's being told doesn't help.

Sollux, Kanaya, the matriorb...and herself.

She doesn't realize it when her hands ball themselves up into fists, when her vision goes blurry, when those tears finally fall.]

How can you be so calm when you're saying this? You're admitting you killed off every little bit of hope we might have had. You're saying you killed me, and Sollux, and Kanaya. And you're too damn calm about it.

[She's so tense and upset she's shaking, and her voice cracks when she tries speaking again.]

That's what I don't get. How are you so fucking calm when you're saying it?
You're talking about killing people. You're talking about killing me.

I don't get it.
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 10:32 pm (UTC)(link)
I thought you wouldn't believe me any other way, Fef. Don't be sad... I've forgiven myself for my mistakes. I hope you can forgive me, too.
cullscuttlefish: (in the same place I've always been)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
There's sincerity and then there's this. It's creepy! It's - it's not right!

[She's saying all this while she's crying.]

I - I just can't - what are you trying to do, saying it like that?
wweh: (wwinnin smile)


[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm only trying to make amends, Fef. I'll remain a failure if I don't.

Would you like to have a feelings jam about this? Whatever would make you more comfortable...


[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-06 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[Thank god, the real Eridan finally caught up with Feferi. And none too soon, at that!]

Fef! Thank god you're alright, was actually startin' to worry...
[Now staring at his shadow.]
Who's this douchebag?
cullscuttlefish: (oh my glub!)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-06 11:28 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I do not --

[She looks back and forth between them.]

-- not know. I thought I was talking with you, but things weren't right! How can you keep calm when you're explaining stuff like what happened back home? It's creepy...
wweh: (shit just got real)


[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-07 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not lookin' the likes a' this guy either, Fef....
Wait, he did WHAT?

I was gonna tell you... I knew it'd be hittin' you hard so I didn't want to do it when you were lookin' like you were about to fly off the handle. Guess he went an' ruined it.

[He walks closer to the shadow. Oh, he was PISSED.]

You've got nerve, flounderin' your way into my business. Got anythin' to say for yourself?
wweh: (wwinnin smile)

[personal profile] wweh 2012-09-07 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
[The shadow's smile returns when the real Eridan makes his appearance. It remains calm, but his tone has become much, much more unsettling. Especially when the real deal keeps poking him in the stomach, to which the shadow brushes it aside.]

Now now, no need to get like that. It's your business too. Certainly enough to qualify you to be in clubs with us, no? I'm sure you and her got some differences you could settle out with me involved.
cullscuttlefish: (when's it my turn?)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2012-09-07 12:31 am (UTC)(link)
[More silence, followed by Feferi tensing up at that smile. And that tone of voice.]

...that's a conchversation for a little bit later. Right now, I just - I don't need a glubbing auspice right now. And even if I did? You -- [she points at the Shadow] -- are the last perchson I would ever. Ever. Trust in that role.
