The Black Fog

WHO: Dysmas and everyone involved with the 'Nightmare Fog'
WHERE: The City of Birchpointe
WHEN: Twilight
OPEN/CLOSED: Open
PROSE OR BRACKETS: Brackets
WARNINGS: Worst Nightmares, Violence, and Trauma



[Nightmares.

Shadows.

Darkness.

This is what every single individual alive had in this world. It is what starts hate, violence, wars. Some believe that is the key to conquer. To become victorious you must bring out the worse for those who think they are above it. That is of course what the fairy of Tamatobriga, a Celtic region of the world which known within their forest lies the dark fairies, and their leader, King Dysmas believed to be so true.

As the light from the city faded more and more, the clouds capturing the sunlight. And so did the shadows travel down from the streets to the top of skyscrapers. Then from the shadows emerged King Dysmas who only lifted a foot onto the pavement of a roof on the tallest building in town. His intricate coat and long translucent wings that only magically seemed to glitter although light was bare. One could only fear the power he held.

Dysmas lifted his hand toward the ground as the shadows grew bigger and darker as they seem to now start to fully submerge the city. Thick clouds transpire from the depths as it quickly took over through the city streets. Individuals walking through the fog felt a deep sense of dread strike them, the dark magic creeping to engulf their mind and take over their sense of rational thought as it would bring out their worst fears and horrific illusions of nightmares. Deadly screams of terror could be heard as those effected by the fog would collapse or run in terror from their visions. Some causing anger as they acted out in violence.

Giving a wicked smile, Dysmas watched the city go into chaotic terror under his illusion. Knowing how worse it will be for the humans and demons who lived here now. To live in fright after all can bring out the wicked. And the damage this will bring for weeks to come is only the more delicious for when they turn into the Caligino.]

Fair is foul, and foul is fair… Hover through the fog and filthy air…

[Ruby pushed herself up as she hook her head. Still clutching close to her sister. Despite the pain, despite the panic. Her sheer stubborness and compassion shined through as tried to move on.]

N-No I-We still gotta find out who's doing this! Maybe it's some kinda illusionist or a nightmare spook or a someone really bad! I-I can't let myself ignore this from happening!

Everyone is so afraid I-I have to help!

[Staring at her wordlessly, Yang was at a loss for what to say. She wanted to back her sister on this, the two of them pushing on and defeating whatever force was causing this and saving the day. But looking out for Ruby, keeping her safe, that was more important to her than anything else. And she couldn't shake the feeling that both of them were in a lot of danger right now.

Setting her jaw into a grim line, she finally confessed.]


Ruby, I-...I think we're in over our heads. You nearly fell and I...

[She hesitated on the words, unsure how to express that she was seeing things, injuries that didn't seem to be there and the unease it was causing her. She sounded like such a coward and she hated it, hated the outright dread freezing her insides. But she'd never forgive herself if something happened to Ruby and right now she was more terrified of that than anything else.

She swallowed and forced some reassurance into her voice.]


I-I don't think we should do this alone. We need to find somebody who can figure out what we're up against. M-maybe Blake'd know something o-or somebody else, I don't know. S-so we're not just running in blind.

[That sounded reasonable, right? If they were dealing with something that could mess with their heads they needed to know how to combat it or at least recognize it. ...They couldn't help anybody if they just became victims themselves.]

[Ruby looked into Yang's eyes seeing how worried she looked. Usually she was so confident, so ready to bounce back and yet here she's...]

Yang...?

[As gazed onward toward her sister which such concern. She didn't seem to be acting like herself at all and that scared her. But more importantly, was Yang not telling her something? Ruby held her hand for a moment to her sister as she held her own breath. Trying to read her thoughts even though she was so lost herself.]

W-Well I...

[Ruby looked down in thought as she shivered.]

It... It might be good to get more help but... I-I just want to help people as quickly as I possibly can!

[If Yang looked troubled before, she looked outright torn now. Everything about this situation was screaming at her, "Get out now" but she was less sure now if that was her desire to keep herself and her sister safe or if it was her courage failing her because Ruby nearly falling and the weird persisting visions had her rattled.

Glancing down at the ground a moment, her eyes tracked back and forth as she thought something over and then she looked back at Ruby with a more determined expression.]


Okay. We'll look around a little longer.

[Slowly, she started to stand, carefully supporting her sister to see if she could stand on her own.]

But we're staying on the ground. [Big sister tone is go, although she relaxes it with a small smile a moment later.] Fog's too thick to hop roofs safely anyway.

[Ruby held out her hand to hold Yang's before standing up straighter. Giving a nod, trying to give a positive smile for her.]

O-Okay... Don't worry Yang, as long as we're together, we can defeat anything!

[Yang pauses briefly to regard her, relieved that the weird phantom injuries on her sister seem to have vanished for now and attempting to return that smile with her trademark cocky grin, although it just doesn't quite reach her eyes.

So instead, she masks it with a small snicker.]


Pretty sure I'm supposed to be the one saying that.

[Her expression warms for a moment and then she gives a nod with all the determination she's got.]

Let's do this.

[Ruby giggled.]

Well I don't mind taking a turn to say that either~

[She nods as she went forward trying to wave her scythe to see through the darkness. It only grew thicker and worse as they went. A shiver ran up her spine as she took in a breath.]

I'm trying to at least hear something, I swear I heard people out here-D-Do you?
nailed_it: (Listening carefully)

[personal profile] nailed_it 2017-01-17 09:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Times like these, she sure did wish she could get her hair to glow more on-command as opposed to a side-effect of her abilities. It'd at least help cut a little through the dense fog.

Yang's sticking close to Ruby so she won't lose sight of her, keeping beside and only a step behind. Admittedly most of her focus is centered on her sister as well, far more concerned about her than what they've actually come into this fog to accomplish but she takes a moment to listen and then slowly shakes her head.]


No. It's really quiet out here.

[And it's super creepy.]
areurobbingme: (Oh No!)

[personal profile] areurobbingme 2017-01-19 06:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby then heard something like lightning in the distance. She turned as she lifted her head. Trying to indicated the sounds, then finally heard someone crying. She reached to tug on Yang's coat to indicate where it was.]

Okay! I definitely hear someone that way!

[She held Yang's hand this time as she went forward toward the sound. Crying out to the sound. It was sadly indeed a child lost and crying in one of the alley ways.]

D-Don't worry! We're coming! Can you see us??

["Monsters, monsters!!"]

No no, we're not monsters, it's okay! We're here to save you!
nailed_it: (Sad smile)

[personal profile] nailed_it 2017-01-20 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[Whether Yang heard the cries for herself or not, she'd follow after her sister without protest. The hand-hold didn't even get a second glance, in fact, she was rather glad for it, given the ever thickening fog and the persistent dread in her stomach that she was one wrong move away from losing her sister in this mess.

The sight of the crying child gave her pause, making her swallow hard at the memory of something else and she tentatively took a couple steps forward towards them, speaking as soothingly as she could.]


We're gonna help you find your family and make the monsters go away, I promise.

[The kid sniffed as she ran toward them and clung to Ruby. Holding her arms out to hug her before carrying her, looking to Yang.]

Let's find this kid's parents...

I hope they're not trapped in this fog too.
nailed_it: (Weren't expecting my backstory were you?)

[personal profile] nailed_it 2017-01-22 12:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Yang sticks close-by, giving as warm a smile as she can manage for the child. She'd offer to carry them so that Ruby's hands are free but it seems like the child has sorta latched onto her for now.]

If they're out here, we'll find 'em.

[She takes up a protective position next to her sister and the child as they start out again. The persistent dread is still there, but it's easier to push it aside with both her sister and a small child to look out for, even if only a little.

She sends the kid another smile, inquiring softly.]


What do your parents look like?
areurobbingme: (Erm About That)

[personal profile] areurobbingme 2017-01-22 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
[The kid rubbed her eyes as she sniffed. "Daddy has brown eyes, tall a-and blonde... a-and mommy has red hair, shes wearing a real pretty dress. A-Are you sure we can find them, what if the monsters go them?"]

Don't worry, we'll find them. Even in this darkness that's just as thick as chocolate!

[Ruby turned to Yang with a weak smile.]

Won't we?
nailed_it: (Relieved smile)

[personal profile] nailed_it 2017-01-23 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Yang offers a grin in return that doesn't quite reach her eyes.]

Definitely.

[She glances around. Times like these, she kinda wished she could get her glowing hair trick to work on command instead of just when she was mad.]

Besides, they're probably looking for you right now.
