Sunday February 12, 2008

Sunny skies and cool weather, and the rain has finally stopped.

Sunrise: 7:50am
Sunset: 5:29pm

Quite suddenly, inexplicably, the sleeping residents of Mysteria have awoken from their comatose like state. The creatures from the nightmares have disappeared, leaving chaos in their wake. Many of the local businesses and homes have taken the brunt of the mess, some damaged beyond repair. Now it's time to rebuild.

An ending and a beginning [

[ mood | productive ]
[ music | Sky Is Falling - Bertie Blackman ]

Who: Simone, Mab, Dana, other fey
Where: The Dreaming
When: Sometime in the night
What: An ending and a beginning

They were running out of time. Simone had fey of all kinds scouring the Dreaming, searching for the star, the menace that had caused all of this.

Every now and again, a star fell in the Dreaming and chaos ensued. Now was such a time. It was breaking down the barriers between the Autumn world and the Dreaming, making dreams turn to reality. A wondrous gift, but given to mere humans? It became the thing nightmares were made of. The dreams in Mysteria were getting out of hand, the dragon had been proof of that. They fey gathered and tried to correct the damage, but that could only hold out for so long. Now it was time to get the star, make the wish and reverse all this.

They had been searching for only a day, but the majority of the Dreaming didn't want Mab to find the star. The UnSeelie queen had started the Wild Hunt in hopes of finding it. So far the treacherous queen had had no luck. Simone and the others meant to keep it so.

The problem was whoever found the star may abuse the power. In it was the ability to grant a wish, no matter how twisted or selfish, whether it defied nature or no. Such power could twist even the purest souls. She couldn't give them that chance, she had to find the star herself.

Simone called her power over the darkness, searched through the endless black. Maia found her that way.

"Simone! I think we've found something! The trees tell me of a crystal, please, follow me!" The nymph ushered Simone with her, going through the deep woods. Light was beginning to break across the sky. Simone's power would be useless if it did. She followed Maia as she listened to the trees, allowing them to guide her.

They stepped into the clearing where the trees had been ravaged by a force from the sky. The dawning light filtered through the crystal, shining upon them. Simone immediately stepped forward. "Maia, we've found it!" She picked it up, holding the pure light in her hands. It illuminated her and she felt it's power rush through her being.

She could have it all. Everything she's ever wanted. Her home, her family, anything. The world.

Simone closed her eyes and began to phrase her wish right. "I wish-" She began....

Who: Nora, Audrey, Dana, Ty
When: 8 am
Where: Taylor Home
What: Nora has a nightmare

"You can't do this!" Nora cried, fighting against the bonds that held her. She was tied to a pole, kneeling as Ethan twisted right in front of her, the demon that had haunted her laughing as she broke his neck inches from her.

Tears streamed down her face as the light winked out of his eyes and he collapsed to the ground, limper than a rag doll. "I hate you," she screeched, fighting the bonds even harder as the demon laughed. It wasn't a new dream, in fact it was a variation on the same nightmare she'd been having. Only this time, something changed.

The demon's lips curled into a twisted smile as the scenery changed. Instead of some torture chamber, they were at Nora and Audrey's new house. Nora looked around in shock, her bonds broken by the change in events. They were in her room, the same room where she was currently sleeping. With a knowing snicker, the demon pushed her back onto the bed.

Jolting upright, her sheets fell into a puddle on her lap, and she was panting heavily as she re-oriented herself. She was home. Ethan was alive. Everything was fine.

Only, everything was not fine. From the corner, she heard the evil chuckle that haunted her dreams. The demon was in their house! She'd found them! Jumping up out of her bed, she scrambled to leave her room, slamming the door shut behind her and leaning against it. "Mom?!" She called out, panic lacing her voice.

Who: Carver
When: 2 pm
Where: Carver's dreams
What: Carver's having a nightmare. It'll end soon.

When the rest of the town fell into a deep slumber, Carver fell with them, almost literally. He'd been on his way to his car when he suddenly collapsed, exhausted. Luckily, he'd been found and brought back to his place, where he drifted constantly from nightmare to nightmare.

Most featured something having to do with his jobs, his father, Raven, or Fox. They blended easily though, in this dark dreamscape he was trapped in. Currently, it was a work dream. He was at the diner, putting in orders. It all felt so real. He could smell the fries, feel the sizzling heat of the grill. He'd just turned to get a new order from Pat when he heard someone clear their throat. Fox was at the frying station, in the human form he'd seen the night he left. Before he could react, the scene changed.

The vat of oil grew, and so did Fox. He was almost three times his usual size by the time he reached Carver, plucking him easily from the ground and into the vat of boiling oil. Carver cried and screamed, twisting as his flesh almost literally melted, the smell nauseating. He passed out from the pain before he could drown in it, the sound of Fox's laughter echoing in his ears.

In the real world, horrible bubbling burn marks spread rapidly from his feet up to his head. Heaving one last grunt, Carver died in his sleep.

Day Change [

Saturday February 11, 2008

The rain has calmed to a light drizzle, though still coming down.

Sunrise: 7:50am
Sunset: 5:29pm

Half of the residents of Mysteria are still asleep, locked in their subconscious, while the waking residents battle the effects of their dreams come to life. The recent dragon attack has left damage to many local businesses and repairs are being made.

Meanwhile, the fey population seems to be rapidly disappearing. Those who have managed to escape the Wild Hunt are headed back into the Dreaming to seek a solution to what's going on the autumn world.

Convicts from the bus crash are still on the loose and local citizens are urged to stay in their home until the crisis is resolved.

[ mood | scared ]

Who: Aurora & Open
Where: Downtown
When: Morning
What: Nightmare come to life

Aurora hadn't meant to fall asleep. She really didn't. She had been trying to stay awake like her mother told her to, drinking coffee nonstop, but when Diana took Meadow and Matty to the hospital again and Aurora was left to her own devices at home, reading had gotten monotonous and she had drifted off.

She was dreaming. It was a nightmare she had been having since she was a kid, and now it had come back to haunt her. She would be in the middle of traffic. Cars zooming in every direction. She was so confused how she had gotten there. She just was, and suddenly there was a loud honking behind her. She would see the truck just in time to get hit, her powers failing her. Every time she got hit, she would wake up. There was no waking up this time.

Suddenly, just like in her dream, she was surrounded by traffic. She screamed, knowing what was coming. She spun and there it was. The honking, the truck. She tried to use her powers to stop it, and true to the dream, they didn't work. She was paralyzed by fear until something hit her, knocking her sideways and out of the truck's path.

[ mood | discontent ]

Who: Sophia & Casey
Where: Their cabin
When: After the dragon mess is over
What: Time for "The Talk"

Sophia had had enough. Casey had been totally distant lately and she wanted to know why. If he blamed her for turning him, he was going to confess to it then. She had checked the Last Round, the agents were helping Bridgette with that, and the dragon was dead, so he wasn't there. She tried his cell, no answer. She knew he was probably fighting, but she needed to talk to him. So she went back to the cabins and waited until he came home.

[ mood | tired ]

Who: Bianca & Open
Where: The Last Round
When: 4pm
What: Agent Scully comes to help

Bianca was exhausted. She had helped five spirits cross over that night alone. Fire victims. She just wanted to sleep. However the little angel, Bridgette, had asked if she would help her fix up and guard the Last Round. She didn't specify why it needed to be guarded, but there were rumors. Either way, she had said yes.

Coming with coffee for everyone, she approached the building. The structure itself was fine, thankfully. She had to park on the other side of the street and was just getting the coffee out when she thought she heard someone calling her name. Hoping it wasn't a ghost, she turned and looked at the newcomer. A smile split her face when she saw who it was. "Hey you. I have coffee. How much do you love me?"

Who: Nora, Open
When: 12 noon
Where: Nikki's
What: Nora's trying to stay awake

School had been canceled, with so many students permanently asleep, and Nora didn't know what to do. School had been keeping her awake, her nightmares too real to be faced. At night she used a steady stream of coffee to stay up, and that was her only option now.

Her dreams were too much to bear. In several, she was living her father's death, as if she'd actually been there. After disposing of their house, the demon then turned to her, and after that dream, she'd woken with blood in her bed and gauges in her arm that she'd securely bandaged alone in the bathroom, trying not to let her mom know. The others were all variations on that theme; the demon torturing her mother before her eyes, or killing Ethan with a single blow.

She was shaking a bit from the effects of the dark brew, but she kept sipping from her cup, curled up in her seat and doodling idly. Her head still dropped to her chest occasionally, but she woke after a second each time, and took another sip. She was just looking out across the store, trying to give her eyes something new to look at, when she spotted a familiar face. Giving a weak smile and stifling a yawn, she waved. "Hey. What's up?"

[ mood | busy ]
[ music | Her Morning Elegance - Oren Lavie ]

Who: Armitages, Eden, OT Friends of the family
Where: Armitage Residence
When: 4pm
What: The Armitages have some moving around to do for their new house guests and Eden needs to be filled in on what's up

Violet was moving things, getting ready for Bridgette and Irene. She lived with Jeannie, so Irene was sleeping in her old room, and she had no idea where Bridgette was sleeping. Probably one of the guest rooms as far away from Ty as Irene would allow. She walked toward the kitchen to get something to dust with so the room was spotless before Irene stayed in it, going past the living room. Her dad was talking to Eden, trying to explain things.

"So, let me get this straight. All of your kids are psychic like me?" She asked, but it was Violet who answered.

"Nope. I'm psychic, I can leave my body. It's called Astral projection. But some of us are witches, vampires, demons, angels, the whole nine yards."

Eden just stared, then looked back to Ty and Miles for confirmation.

Who: Irene, Open
When: 6 pm
Where: The Last Round
What: Irene needs to do something.

Unable to just stand around in the hospital waiting any more, Irene had excused herself for a few hours and headed back to the bar. Sure, magic had protected the structure of the building, but the things inside of it hadn't been as lucky. And, as she'd found when she arrived, much of the liquor had heated to the point of explosion before Tyson had stopped the blaze.

There was a huge mess to clean up, and it was just what she needed. To do something that would help, that she could visually measure. She rolled up her sleeves and got to work. First, she threw open all the doors and windows, trying to get the scent of burning and booze out of the air. Then, she started picking up the garbage, throwing it in giant trash cans she placed strategically around the room.

It was a mess, even hours later, and she paused to sit in one of the booths, wiping the sweat off her face. She didn't know what to do, how to make any of this better. Gideon might never wake up, might never know his son. The mess in the bar seemed pale in comparison, and she couldn't even fix that, how could she help Gideon? Still, there was only one way to start, and that was just to do it. She pushed herself up and started cleaning again, this time moving even faster, glass clanking loudly within the cans each time she made a deposit. She didn't even noticed when someone darkened the doorway of the bar.

[ mood | pissed off ]
[ music | Pretty Girl - Sugarcult ]

Who: Savannah, Drew, Eva, Cleo, Devon(NPC)
When: 1am
Where: The airport in Devil's Lake
What: Savannah makes a bad choice. Luckily she's got people to come to her rescue

I shouldn't be doing this. That's all Savannah was thinking as she rode in the cab with Devon to the Devil's Lake airport. He wouldn't forgive her. Drew. It was all she could think about. His words from the previous night came back to her. "Unless it was 100% premeditated." Well, here it was. She had to. She had no choice. She couldn't risk this.

"Our flight leaves in a half hour. Won't you be glad to get out of this dump?" Devon asked far too cheerily. In his warped mind, it was only a matter of time before he had everything he wanted. Sure Savvy was mad now, but she'd get over it.

"No, I won't. This is my fucking life you're playing with Devon. Don't make me do this," She begged again. Useless, but she had to.

"I told you. I'm in too deep. I need your connections and skill to pull off this job. Then your'e clear. You can go back to middle of goddamn nowhere and be happy." Yep, Devon was way too cheerful.

"You bastard," Savannah glared, trying not to cry. She knew Drew must be worried by now. She had been gone a day and a half and didn't bother to tell him where. She couldn't. She would explain everything when she got back.

[ mood | sad ]

Who: The Kelley's & Open
Where: The Hospital
When: Morning
What: Some of the Kelley's are sleeping and Diana and the crew go to visit

This was all too much. How much could you take before you broke? Aside from Aurora and the M&M's, her children were sleeping. Not dead, not comatose. Just deeply asleep and not waking up. Her eldest and the middle two. And of course, Derek. She didn't know what to do about Derek. He had started to explain how he knew such things, that he had been an angel of wrath before meeting Diana and fallen for some reason.

She sat at the end of his hospital bed and talked to him. About everything. How angry she was. How she needed him. How she never slept without him anymore. It was probably what saved her from leaving her children too.

"Mom?" Aurora queried tentatively, knocking on the door. She held the twins' hands and smiled at Diana. "You okay?"

"Just fine sweetheart." She stood up and walked down the hall when she saw a familiar face. "Hey you," She smiled, "What are you in for?"

[ mood | numb ]

Who: Maia & Zeke OT Evan, Lara, Bridgette, Irene, others
Where: Their house
When: Early morning
What: Assessing the damage

Every instinct in Maia's being told her to go outside, start the repair. Her trees. But right now there was more important things. Zeke still hadn't come home. She was worried until she was physically sick. She had to get herself under control, be strong.

Would this be what it was like every time something happened? The fear, the worry? She accepted all of Zeke when she agreed to marry him. She wasn't having doubts, just worried about her strength, her ability to take it. Could she? Could she be strong enough for them?

She sat outside and waited for Zeke, ignoring the rain, the chill in the air. She just wanted him home. Nothing else mattered.

In need of a little magic [

[ mood | determined ]
[ music | In Too Deep - Sum 41 ]

Who: Artemis & John
Where: The Raven's Nest
When: Midmorning
What: After the attack, Artemis goes looking for something to kill a dragon

Thankfully there were still a few places left standing. Nikki's Delights, most of the Last Round, and the Raven's Nest, and occult shop she'd heard about. She didn't know what else to do. She was only a human hunter, even if she was the best with kick ass intuition. She had to do something to help, keep the Hellgate quiet and stop this goddamn dragon. It was resting for now, but it would come back. She needed to stop it before that happened.

The bell above the door rang and Artemis looked behind the counter. She expected to see a kindly old lady not...John. She stepped right up to him and said, "So, question of the day. How to kill a dragon. How to get close enough to kill a dragon. Answer is..."

Day Change [

Friday February 10, 2008

A sudden rainstorm has befallen Mysteria and it looks like it's going to last well into the weekend.

Sunrise: 7:50am
Sunset: 5:29pm

With half the denizens of Mysteria permanently asleep, those left awake are battling their subconscious made flesh. The fires left by the dragon have been extinguished for the most part. There is considerable damage to many local businesses, including The Last Round. The hellgate still sleeps, but demonic forces are taking advantage of the mayhem to cause some of their own.

There have been reports of attacks on local citizens due to the escaped convict situation and people are urged to stay in their homes until further notice.

A call to arms [

[ mood | determined ]

Who: All the fey
When: 9am, after the fires have been put out
Where: Abandoned building outside of the mound
What: A call to arms

Simone had called this meeting. Gathered all the fey she could find that was hiding in Mysteria and brought them there. Sides and standing didn't matter. They had a larger problem at hand. Such things didn't matter now.

The Wild Hunt had begun. She would bet her life that the queen was looking for the star. The fallen star in the Dreaming that had caused all of this. Now humans were getting trapped in a dream state and the only city near the Mound was burning. They had to stop it. She silenced the squabbling with a whistle.

"That is enough. Don't you see what's happening here? The Dreaming is in chaos. The mortal world is slowly falling into ruin as well. The Wild Hunt has began, and we all know what that means. The Wyldefae will be forced to choose or die, and god knows what will happen if the queen gets her hands on the star. We have to take action, and we have to do it now." Her voice was strong and authoritative, the kind of voice that made the others really listen, want the change. "We go into the Dreaming. We find the star. We stop this madness."

"But how will we find it?" A brownie asked meekly, as if afraid of Simone's wrath.

"We work together of course. Pool all of our resources, feuds and squabbles aside. The first one to find it? You will wish for things to return to their rightful state. This is too important not to. We're talking about the Dreaming itself, life as we all know it. We don't have time or chances for anything else. This is it. Now. Who's in?"

[ mood | disappointed ]

Who: Sophia & Open
Where: Town center
When: Morning
What: Hurricane Sophia

Sophia was worried. She had been trying to cover these stories, but the truth was out now. Since a goddamn dragon went soaring over Mysteria. This was the story of a lifetime, and the kicker?

She wasn't allowed to report it.

No one was. The Editor said there was protocol for these sort of things. That they couldn't leave documentation of it. It was a promise he had made ages ago, blah blah, woof woof. The point was, this story was going unchecked while all hell broke loose. They covered, warning people about the 'accident' that had rendered half of the town unconscious. Accident. Stupid people.

To top it off, Casey was MIA. She had no idea where he had been. He never talked to her anymore, never hung out with her, never even wanted her. She didn't know what his problem was. She was starting to feel really lonely and it was eating at her. She called and left a message for Nadia to see how she was doing, then sat down on a bench, pouting.
