mannequins + TERRITORY IN FLAMES
« on: November 09, 2018, 07:22:59 PM »
☣ — Traveling across the from the seas came two Pittians with malicious intents. One large, the other tiny. They traveled through the underbrush..... More like Stryker traveled. The small cat remained on his back while he did all the work. Her reason? "I have to run to keep up with you while you're walking, you really expect to get in and out of there fast with my short legs holding us back?" They had a plan in mind and to the ardent, the more energy Ninazu had to use on her fire manipulation, the better the city would go up in flames. Led along with a suggestive roll of his eyes, the lion agreed to have her travel on his back while they traveled.

After a long ways, the two arrived. The Typhoon had not noticed their presence yet, but they soon would. After all, their situation (literally) would go up in flames if they didn't happen to! Once coming along the edge of the island's desired city, the lion shook his shoulders lightly to signal Ninazu to pay attention and be his lookout. Stryker lowered towards the ground. Ready to pounce and head in, all he had to do was find an opening... Neon orbs wide and ears alert, the ardent watched as unaware pirates crossed his path in the midst of the night. Many were headed to their jungle homes, others out on patrol, but others were heading to the Tavern to rightfully party the night away. The ardent found his chance.

He began moving out slowly. Soon his small paces turned into fast strides as he headed into the Typhoon's territory towards the tavern with Ninazu on his back. Stryker slashed at anyone in his path and continued to dash towards the Capricorn Tavern. Growing close enough to get a major hit, the ardent gave his signal.

"Now."

It was showtime... and thus the flames began.

I WISH YOU COULD SEE THE WICKED TRUTH
CAUGHT UP IN A RUSH, IT'S KILLING YOU
Smugly sitting in the midst of Stryker’s coarse mane, the tiny sand cat flicked her tails as she hung on. The lion moved quicker than expected, but she managed to stay atop her perch  – with the occasional tug on his mane or a horn to keep herself upright. She kept her golden eyes sharp as she watched the territory bleed past them; so far, they managed to avoid the bulk of them. Well, she heard their target was a popular hotspot, so she doubted that would last for too long.

Seeing the building come into view, her tails lashed in anticipation as Stryker continued to charge forward. Breathing deeply, the mage focused her energy; she felt her lungs grow hot in her chest. Her chin tilted up as a puff of smoke accompanied her exhale. Pupils dilating, she waited for his signal, to get close enough!

With a hiss, fire streamed from her maw – expertly avoiding Stryker’s mane and charging towards the Tavern with the plume of a flamethrower and flames wider than herself. Her flames burned and smoldered before flickering out as she took another inhale, ears flicking as she looked at her carnage. The target, while not reduced to a pile of rubble, crackled and popped with her flames constricting around its walls. It was out of her paws now – her fire took on a life of its own, and she wouldn’t think of controlling it further.

☣ — Once the flames had a life of their own and had managed to take hold of the Tavern, soon spreading to other parts of the territory, the two parted their ways. In the middle of the night, the pirates would awake to see their precious tavern in ashes and the rest of their territory being destroyed by the Pittian's flames. The rest, luckily, was salvageable.

"The endless Void, The gazing abyss, The bottomless ocean of horror...It coiled itself around your tender heart"
for being there supposed 'arch enemy' , the slavers didn't seem to know them all that well.

because chucking fire at a clan with predominantly fire users is a moot point - not to say when he spotted the fire on the horizon, the greater never sleeping dragon didn't immediately pull a sharp U-turn in his flight and practically sprint-wing it to the scene already grasping at the flames with his innate sense and belting out a roar to alert the others and wake them the hell up.

he already began bending the fire away as much as he was able hovering above the burning tavern, and bending it to hold it back long enough for the others to get out

"WAKE THE FUCK UP AND GET THE FIRE AND THE WATER ELEMENTALISTS OUT HERE"

oh he might seemed worried and busy now but no, Lucifer was hella seething - there were youngsters in there and whether he had to raise hell or bend heaven, the slavers wouldn't get away with this.

Masie had unknowingly had experiences with fire in the past, but her encounters with the element were all 'indirect' controlled in someway. Even when Baku had burned her, it was exposure to flame through another conduit, someone else was controlling it. When fire was not controlled by some creature directly? It was a whole different ball game, the scent of smoke awakening her from the nest and causing her to race off in order to investigate, not quiet connecting the scent of the fire with the substance known as fire. She had very little reason to draw such a line, even with Techno occasionally sparking up and burning things like macaroni, that was different from an actual fire that spewed smoke and charred the air with what it had destroyed.

Golden eyes widened and she took a single step back after darting into the clearing expecting some new joyous experience like most of how she perceived the world. Masie couldn't twist this positively or annoying, something wasn't right here! Before her young eyes bright red consumed the building, heat like what had burned her floating off it. Small claws tapped as she stepped back again, remembering the pain that shot through her muzzle, slowly coming to the realization from the jumping and licking of flames that the threat they couldn't touch without injury was now mobile! "CC! TECHNO!" The actual list of names she shouted was longer, but it was kind of lost in her rapid head snapping, alarmed cries rising from her throat, panicked by the realization she had no idea where some of the rest of this pack was, and there was a very real threat that could hurt them. How could she protect them like Owen protected her if she couldn't find them? The smoke scent blanketed everything, her nose unable to work as it should have. Father and sister's had been at the nest, but not everyone slept with them, so where was everyone else!

They had almost forgotten about the petty rivalries that existed between the different groups that dotted his earth. It was the same in every world, every dimension... even in death, the ghosts all tore at each other's immortal throats, like dogs till the end of time. It was what had caused them to leave, the anger and destruction tiring already ancient bones, and had it not been for Sol they wouldn't have cared much to come back.

They also wouldn't have cared much to try and do anything to put these fires out. Life ran its course, and people would fight and destroy and kill each other until they died themselves. This was no different, and they rarely saw a reason to help or even hinder opposing forces just because their supposed 'alliances' told them to. Their alliances were to people, not to clans, and in all honesty they had never once mentioned that they joined. They had only asked to shelter Sol here.

And now his shelter was going up in flames.

They were uncharacteristically perturbed by the spectacle, something they had seen time and time again and approached with naught but a calm disposition now causing them some semblance of panic. It was all because of the little boy they had sworn to protect, who had no powers of his own, and who would surely burn to a crisp if nothing was done and fast. Their golden gaze flickered, briefly flashing, only to turn the darkest shade of black as the fear finally took a grip on them.

They were fast to approach, all but running towards Lucifer and Masie, frantically peering around them and trying to find the tiger cub. One glance showed that he wasn't with them, or anywhere else close by... and so the only thing a panicked creature could conclude was that the chances that the child was burning up inside of the fire was highly probable. "Has anyone seen Sol?" they inquired, the panic seeping into their usually controlled voice even as they used their powers to start tugging at the fire itself to try and urge it to calm down and simultaneously reaching out for the nearest water source to douse the flames as fast as possible.

Yelling, he had been awoken by a loud roar from Luciferus, his eyes widening as he darted up onto his feet, searching around for his child- Masie must have ran off to find CC and Techno, he knew she wouldn't wander off in moments like these for no reason.

That didn't mean Owen didn't get worried, though.

Soon, what was once just an oversized german shepherd, was now a indominus rex, pale white and brown scales seeming to become crimson from the fire around him. The dinosaur crashed through burning trees, a loud roar leaving his jaws to respond to Luci's alert. He had no elementals, but he could evacuate as many people as he could on his back. The tendrils along his spine was great for holding onto when you knew what you were doing, but also dangerous.

The indo-rex moved onto all four feet, massive head leaning down so NPC's could run up onto his head and down his back. "Any of those who are affected by the fire, I can carry. Luci, do you have everything under control with the fire?" Owen called over his shoulder, nostrils flaring against the smoke that rushed past his nose.

"All children are to stay close to your parents or climb aboard! We're going to move to safety! I'll lead the evacuation away from the Tavern and over to the water more!" Owen called out, his long tail flicking a piece of burning wood into the forest that had begun to burn.

The fire was spreading fast, and Owen was worried about Masie. Masie, Masie, Masie.

The Quartermaster was having a bad night. He couldn't seem to sleep, rolling back and forth that he eventually gave up and set light to his fireplace, sitting up and simply staring at the crackle of flames. There was no need for the warmth of it. Sitting so close to the fire didn't phase him because his body was already so unnaturally hot that he was only watching the shape of the red and gold crackles, the way the light danced and struggled, consumed the logs and air. Fire was always hungry. No matter how much you fed it, it would never be satisfied. It could consume and engulf the earth to its end if allowed to. He thought it to be similar to his ambitions - the ambitions he used to have in that other world where he wanted to be number one. He wanted to be the winner, the best of the best. Since coming to accept this world as his own home, he started to realise that he didn't exactly have ambitions. In this world, powers could manifest through birth or suddenly. Even if he wanted to be the strongest, it wasn't possible. Someone would develop some kind of stupid, spontaneous mutation to outgrow his abilities. He simply had to accept that he could be strong but not invulnerable. There were other beings closer to it than he was.

Bakugou didn't live close to The Tavern. His hut was closer to The Tempest, overlooking the sea, shaded by overhanging palm trees. It was usually quiet where he was at night because he never usually noticed pirates sitting on the sands, watching the way the ocean glistened under the moonlight. But Luciferus' roar was something he could not ignore, the call being unsettling that he called for those with the abilities to manipulate fire and water that he darted immediately out, letting his door swing open before smashing closed. He ran towards the source and noticed the thick smell of smoke, sanguine eyes flickering with a sense of rage when he teleports closer. His nostrils flared at the awful odour when he realised it was the Tavern being burned. The alcohol must have fed the fire's rage when Bakugou too joined in to bend the fire upwards into the air, knowing that it would not survive with oxygen alone. He heard Lirim's concern, voice over the sound of consuming flames. "Was he supposed to be inside the Tavern?" he asks in return, eyes widening, "I'll go in to check." Luckily it was only the Tavern that was on fire.

Before going inside to see if there were any members caught inside the flames, he looks at Lucifer who seemed to be leading the control of the fire: "YO, LUCIFER. MAKE SURE THE FLAMES DON'T SPREAD PAST THE TAVERN. I'M GOING INSIDE TO CHECK FOR ANYONE CAUGHT IN IT."

[ ooc ] bakugou went inside the tavern to see if anyone's inside the mess. he's using his fire elementals to keep the flames from burning him.

YOU'RE ATTEMPTING TO BORE ME !
CAESAR CIPHER. MALE. THE TYPHOON. HEAD OFFICER.
Funny how the clan most known for being around water was being hit with fire. Caesar found it even more ironic, with how he used flames to destroy both his Home Dimension and Snowbound. If Caesar hadn't been alerted to the scene by the sight of smoke alone, he probably would have been drawn over by the sound of Lucifer's roar ringing about camp. The Officer watched the flames with awe and curiosity, watching it burn and eat away at the Tavern as much as it could, despite being manipulated by Lucifer.

Should he be helping? Yes, probably, but Caesar simply choose to sit down a few ways away from the scene, watching in an expression that showed he was enjoying the sight of the flames before him. He showed no concern for his crewmates, wrapping his tail over his paws as he watched the scene unfold.

Des always had an affinity for fire, often showing off small tricks to Sol to make him laugh and his eyes light up. He always held a little bit of it between his lips (a cigarette, as he had explained) and a lot more in his heart, burning through and manifesting as both bravery and pain. His dad had explained to him that fire was a dangerous thing, that even though it offered warmth, there was a thin line between a hearth and hellfire. It didn’t stop Sol’s fascination with it. Maybe it was to be expected, for he was a child borne of a creature with one leg in hell and the other in nonexistence. Perhaps it would have been safer to prepare him for the consequences of life like Desperado was trying to slowly do rather than shelter him from it all like Lirim was now doing. He was a child, and it was inevitable he would be drawn towards danger if his father was anything to go by. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree, and Sol seemed particularly close to it.

He had been wandering when the flames started, breaking free from Lirim’s sleeping grasp to instead explore his new home in hopes of finding his father. Lirim still refused to explain his disappearance, staying silent whenever the question fell upon their ears, and the child was getting tired of sitting by idly while his dad was gone. No one was doing anything to search for him, no one seemed to care. But he did. He would find him alone if he had to.

The first place he coincidentally thought to start that search was the Tavern. It was fairly boisterous, even without all of its members there, and it seemed like the best place to start looking. A crowd as big as this would surely bring someone interesting, someone who would be able to answer his questions. Or maybe Des himself would be there to gather his son up in his paws, taking him back home. Because he was the child’s home. Sol didn’t really view places without any emotional connections as homes. It was all just temporary shelter until you had someone there with you.

But as it was, his father wasn’t there, and he had chose to search at a very, very bad time.

The heat of the flames started off subtle, and could have easily been mistaken for the warming of a room when too many bodies started to fill it. It didn’t take long for the heat to start getting uncomfortable, however, and for the tiger’s fears to start trickling in as he slowly started to realize that the heat wasn’t just a coincidence. The smell of charring wood was the first give away. The smoke that started to fill his tiny lungs was the second.

Everything seemed to explode into chaos soon after. Bodies started shoving each other out of the way to try and get out, friends were helping other friends to find holes they could crawl out of... but no one noticed Sol. He was too small, and no one expected a child to be up so late and in the tavern of all places. He was left alone, still trying to find his dad, convinced that he would be here, following the fire to find his son.

The smoke woke her before Lucifer did.

The tiny fae didn't spend a lot of time in the tavern, but when she wanted to avoid her family, it was the first place on her list.  No one would look for her inside the tavern walls, not when she'd barely ever been seen in there before.  Fact was, the population of the building always frightened her.  Too many voices and smells to keep track of.  Hard to avoid running into someone.

Yet inside the walls she'd been.  At the second she inhaled smoke, the child slowly encased herself in ice.  An instinctive act of protection she hadn't realized she'd even done until the sizzle of melting ice hit her ears.  Oh.  The memory of Raziel's worried voice echoed in her mind but she realized now that the ability did not harm her.  She'd be like to burn without it.

Slowly, Keona took a step forward, then another.  While the fire couldn't touch her fur, her lungs burned, healing broken ribs screaming protest as she moved.  She tried to follow her sense of others' presences, searching for the feeling of a familiar aura.  Instead, she nearly ran into Sol, much to her surprise.

She coughed roughly.  "H-hey," another sharp cough, "we 'ave to g-get ou- BAKUGOU!" That was Bakugou right?  Felt like.  Could he hear me? She crouched low, trying to case the floor with ice, yet only the hissing of steam met her ears.  She grasped for the minds of the two she'd been bonded with, Kai. Unc... Da. Someone would know.

"The endless Void, The gazing abyss, The bottomless ocean of horror...It coiled itself around your tender heart"
"I've got it Owen, get as many out as you can, anyone else with fire abilities can help out some or start getting buckets of water for the fire - Already on it bakugou!" he called back to both,  - this time pulling harder at the flames and watching as they bent away from him and those inside, like the very beast frightened the furious fire itself.

"get them out while you can!" he called, eyes glancing across  all who were away from the flames and landing on Caesar with a curled lip at the expression "And you wonder why you were passed over" he rumbled quietly before his attention diverted back to the flames and bending them away.

he heard someone asking after Sol and the others but couldn't answer past concentrating - as the fire steadily backed away from his will, the shadows afearing it into submission.

He was okay with holding his breath. He might have been somewhat immune to fire but he certainly was not immune to the smoke. Luckily, with his constant fireplace and his blacksmithing, he was used to dealing with so much carbon dioxide swimming in the atmosphere, lungs big enough to allow him to only take a few breaths at a time than breathe normally. The flames were making it difficult for the young Quartermaster to see, sanguine eyes narrowing as his eyes zoom in on the sight of the tiger cub. He inwardly cursed at the events, annoyed that there was a child here to begin with as he moves closer, teleporting to the side when broken wood begins to fall. He quickly moves towards Sol and attempts to use the ground beneath the child as a bowl to hold him in the air, closing it up into a sphere with Sol inside while also allowing small holes at the bottom. That way, Sol can breathe from the air below and light from the burning, bright Tavern will not startle the child. The fire was loud and overwhelming, his thoughts were to get out of the Tavern as soon as possible but he knew once he left, the state of the building would be even worse for him to re-enter.

Just when his eyes swept across the area, the male assuming no one else to be left, he heard the shrill among the flames. He hurries towards the source, coughing through the smoke and unable to materialise before Keona because he was holding Sol within his earthen ball. He sees her attempting to move, struggling as she tried to use her water abilities to cool down the hot area. Bakugou pushes away any debris close to her with his earth elementals before trying to pick her up by the scruff. As soon as this was done, he moved straight for the exit, the door appearing to collapse that with a raised paw he summons a jet of explosive flames towards the entrance so that all the fallen rubble would burst away. He pulls himself out, dropping Keona and opening the earth that contained Sol before wheezing into his own fits from having breathed too much smoke in. He would, regardless, be fine but he hadn't been very gentle when putting the kids back down. Then again, he didn't think it mattered, they were safe now and he was exhausted from the heat and flames. "Was there anyone else in there?" he asks, voice raised because the noise had caused his ears to ring. He didn't even have time to look around, get angry at the fact that Caesar was doing nothing.

They knew not when but somewhere along the line they had lost grasp of the passage of time, permitted it to slip beneath the slow tumble of idle thought.

Quiet the chatter of it curling about the interior of skull, working along the bone as gentle it scrapes, seeking attention proven sluggish and unwilling to touch upon anything for any length of time. Swimming almost, bundled together is the heat about them drawn across the walls in shades of orange and black, flickering play of light as about the shadows it twirls and dances, heavy the touch of exhaustion tugging at the edge of mind. Pleasant is it all, this moment their own. Or it may have been if not for he.

Slow the lift of gaze, head lolling and draw of weight bringing with it body, weight resting upon shoulder and side. Loud is the clamour of it, the strike of hammer upon the surface of metal glimmering within ruddy tones, sparks drawn forth into the air. They know well the sanguine tones of his eyes would be sharpened within concentration, perched upon the work set before him, contemplating the structure of it. Time consuming was it all, from the preparation as pencil is drawn across the surface of paper and together comes design, selection of piece fitting to the project set before him given a great deal of care. And during it all they had been there, questions balanced upon the tip of tongue though rare had it been for such to arise within tone of pleading, whine almost as it fell from tongue in a sudden rush, caught up within the process of it all.

“Why are you here,” between each strike, clamour of hammer touching upon metal fading within wake of words, confusion drawn across gentle features. Quiet the exhale, tremble to lips as words form upon the surface of cracked skin, furrow of fictitious brow one of worry. “You don't belong here, you never have.” Breath caught, lodged within throat until – sputtering cough, press of paws and uneasy their movements. Within tense muscles adrenaline works, touches each nerve ending.

Choking. Heavy the press of weight upon throat, familiar all of it. Sting of tears, teeth clenched tight between teeth slow to draw back, hiccuping breath pushing through.


Brush of heat upon side, burning caught within throat, sudden the inhale. Fragments of the dream – nor may it be deemed a nightmare – lingered upon the ragged edges of a mind slow to draw itself forth from the depths of slumber, sharp the cough raising, tearing through throat. Painful is it all, inhalation of smoke unwelcome. Few knew of their place here, learnt of the room they had taken for they had bore no wish to disturb him any longer though it was within their own mind they had formulated such idea, drew it forth until it bounced and echoed, spoke only of their presence as unneeded. Possibly she had been right.

Scrape of claws upon wood, shift of the heavy mass of blankets about them. There was no time to think though within the space was a few trinkets, little things found during scavenges and those they had yet to pass on, mind skipping over them all. Later, when things had calmed and the last embers crackled within the smouldering mess, may they touch upon it, feel within the harsh twist of regret. For now their only thought was to move. Difficult was it, dragging steps drawn across wooden flooring that had grown heated, touch of splinters and raised nails tearing, smears of crimson left within their wake.

All too late they noticed the stairs. Empty was the air that met them, brief the moment when it registered before gravity was taking them, wrapping about small frame cruel hands. Jarring the first thud, the press of the stair into shoulder, the next edge found chest, pressed until – snap. Broken was the scream raising from parted jaws, brief the respite as they found themself drawing to a stop, caught upon the next stair. So close to the end. Raising within waves the heat of pain curled about where bone had broken, shifting and moving, breath bringing with it more. Stretch of limbs, paw hooking on edge of stair and again the thud of body upon next, choked the sob drawn from bloodied lips.

The heat rose, crackling and sharp, acidic the smell of smoke. Everything hurt. Slight was the register of more, the sudden built up of heat contained to their back legs, the raise of the fire about the stairs finding new fuel. Ever hungry, seeking more, never sated until nothing was left.”Baku! Ma... ma!" Struggle was it to push forth the words, call wavering and dying.

She awoke with a start. Had it not been for the screaming of Lucifer, she likely would not have even noticed the emergency at all. The girl slept within her papa's submarine, resting peacefully in the familiar rooms. She did not much appreciate being woken up at first, body tensing and jumping upward in a rush. She was afraid perhaps she had done something wrong. Were they going to take her back? Were they going to punish her? But, those questions quickly melted away as she realizes the noises behind the dragon's own voice. Her harpy eagle was letting out alarmed screes, attempting to flap his wings rapidly, though could not take flight due to his healing broken wing. There was a sound further than that, too. The sound of rushed calls, and something else. Crackling, sizzling. It was fire, and it was not a planned one.

Her body arises, clumsily and hurriedly approaching the entrance of the submarine. "Lynn, come," she calls towards the avian, to which he ceases his failed attempts at flights and approaches. She brings him upon her hind and then runs out of the structure, now trying to find the source of the flames, the smoke filling the air. Her eyes lock onto it quickly and she pushes her body there as fast as she could. She did not have fire nor water elementals, but she could at least move her way around, try to help anyone get out, try to help heal any injuries. Anything was better than nothing.

As she approaches the scene, she realizes another scent is connected to the smoke and a deep anger sparks through her. She lets out a hiss at herself. The Pitt did this. Stryker did this. She would not let them get away with this. The first thing she'd do, after this was settled, she would take care of it. She would make things right again. She would show Stryker just what happens when he tries to screw with her home. She is not his slave anymore. She is not his little, sweet girl. She is going to unleash Hell upon them until they get a taste of their own medicine. He will learn. He will pay for his crimes. But, not yet. Now, she must focus on taking care of the situation at hand. Her home is in danger. She will eliminate the threats, one at a time.

She has arrived fully now, and she plans to scan the environment first and foremost, figuring out where she would be most useful, but her intentions are thrown out as soon as she hears a call lift through the flames. Ma. Her eyes widen and she sets down Lynn, immediately sprinting towards the first entrance she finds, swiftly avoiding the ashes and burning materials. "I'm coming! It's okay, don't move!" she calls through the smoke, holding her body low as she pushes it around. The bengal's eyes shoot around the tavern until they finally land upon CC. She nearly leaps in her direction, moving as quickly as she could until she finally reaches her. "I'm here." The female attempts to pick up the feline by her scruff, breathing harshly. If successful, the female would begin to maneuver her way out of the building, letting out a small, soothing hum in an attempt to calm the young girl.
