scenic vancouver

Ari is patrolling the streets of scenic Vancouver! Well, actually he's just going to visit Peter, but he's keeping an eye out for monsters along the way. It's a nice night, monsters like ruining that kind of thing. The streets are more or less deserted, it being 2:00 AM on a Tuesday. Ari whistles cheerfully.

"Either will do, both would be better, Keziah is slightly more relevant," says Lazarus. "There is certainly a sea - well, an entire subworld - of horrible monsters. My power won't even look directly at them. I have never met something my power refused to look at before. But I can see enough of their properties indirectly to be extremely worried. The situation is stable, there is a barrier between here and there, but it's not a terribly impressive barrier and if something damaged it enough the consequences would be dire."

"How damageable is it, how amenable is the barrier to wished improvements, is there likely to be anything worth not destroying about the subworld of horrible monsters, if not will a tenner do it, how do our wards stack up if we try to approach to investigate, likewise torching? Jane, go ahead and ask Keziah and Céleste over, notify Rose."

Keziah shows up first.

"Yikes," she says to Peter. "I'm here to fix that, right? I want to fix that. Céleste will help."
nonbird: (e. something is wrong here)

"Torching remains torching, they couldn't destroy you, but they could make you extremely uncomfortable," says Lazarus. "I would not trust your wards against the horrible monsters. They are very infinite and very horrible and seem to be able to circumvent most magic by default. Wished improvements could improve the barrier but I am not sure they would improve it enough. I cannot see anything worth saving about the subworld of horrible monsters. I think a tenner would probably work, but I think it would be a very, very good idea to check with the Downside admin about whether this world can be properly linked to her afterlife before trying it, in case something goes wrong. And if she says it can't, then I recommend evacuating the universe and sending in someone who doesn't mind being potentially trapped in an infinite sea of horrible monsters to try the tenner."

"I can go ask her. Easier to point out the world if I torchable somebody first or bring a native along. Who wants to be really, really immortal?"

"Wait," says Peter in something of a panic. "We're destroying the Outsiders? Without even considering how we could use them to our advantage? Do you have any idea of the kind of power contained in the Void? Think of what we could do!"
inherpiety: (l ~ look closer)

[personal profile] inherpiety 2015-02-25 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
"Blech," says Keziah, and she lunges for Peter, reaching for his head.

Peter instinctually flings out a hand, and the room feels cold and the shadows lengthen and-

nothing happens. His head is reached, and he starts thrashing around.
nonbird: (d. but why would you do that)

[personal profile] nonbird 2015-02-25 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Lazarus eeps.
inherpiety: (m ~ gaslight)

[personal profile] inherpiety 2015-02-25 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
Keziah is undeterred. She grabs his head. She gets ahold of his gook and she yanks. This would be easier with Céleste, but she can do it without. Begone, foul ick.
jovahs_heiress: (n ~ unsure)

And if Peter were thinking of trying anything else, now he can't.

Sally's finger comes to rest on the sapphires set into her lower lip. Very casually. Suspiciously casually.

"Everyone stop doing alarming things," says Lazarus.

"Lazarus, Keziah, local wizards if you have anything to add, please inform me when your friend is no longer disposed to attack my daughter, such that I should allow him to so much as twitch again."

Meanwhile, Peter's corruption is being a real bastard to get rid of. It's like prying someone's fingers off of something they're desperately trying to keep. While they bite you frantically. Keziah's got the upper hand, but it's very, very stubborn.

"Keziah, what's happening?"
inherpiety: (j ~ want)

[personal profile] inherpiety 2015-02-25 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
"It's nasty. Can I get Céleste to help?" says Keziah, voice tense with effort.
jovahs_heiress: (m ~ concern)

[personal profile] jovahs_heiress 2015-02-25 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
"...Leave it alone for now, treasure. I didn't mean to call you in early but clearly there is more to the situation than we knew. Micaiah, will you please take Pen home? And before anything else happens, I would like a more complete assessment of what's going on."
inherpiety: (n ~ taken aback)

[personal profile] inherpiety 2015-02-25 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
Keziah scowls but drops her hands. "It jumped! It got worse all of a sudden when he said the thing about - power and Outsiders!"
yovahs_kisses: (⑼ go where you want)

Micaiah nods, and cues Jane to send Pen back to Samaria, and freecasts after her.
