[open] Meet your local alien

Who: An alien and you! [This post is also open to returnees!
What: Watching the sky
When: First day of the invasion (29th of April)
Where: Anywhere!

There is a strange phenomenon in the skies, and a large serpent's body has broken through the clouds multiple times today, crashing into the earth and wrecking havoc or into the sea and causing tsunamis or earthquakes.

The air is full with chatter and everyone is trying and failing to explain what is going on. Some say it must be rapture, others speak of aliens. Some say it is a new super weapon of the USA or Russia or North Korea or some other country, others claim that the Illuminati are finally showing their true face. Most of all, though, people are scared and insecure. No airplanes are taking off today.

And here, in the middle of the street or park or wherever you are walking, stands or sits someone and looks at the sky.

Geoff can be found in Lapland, Santarem, London and the Neuschwanstein Area. He holds a notebook and is writing things down in a script that few will be able to read - it's Old Assyrian cuneiform. If approached, he will shut his book and nod at the new arrival.
Badri can be found in Tokyo, London, Locke and the Galapagos Islands. He is sitting on a blanket on the ground and is having a picnic that mostly consists of the local incarnation of popcorn and some sugary drink or the other. He's offering popcorn to all passers-by.
Meredith can be found in Las Vegas and Christmas Island. He leans against a wall and watches the sky, shaking his head in exasperation every once in a while.
Maryann Young can be found in all echo boundaries. She is walking briskly and with determination, yet will stop and greet any numbered that she encounters. She somehow knows who the numbered are so even if you've never met her, she will do this.
The siblings Zhang can be found in every zoo that lies within an echo boundary. They look at the sky every once in a while, but they seem more interested in the animals. They do however not step into any buildings.


When commenting, please put your location and if you have a preference re: whom to meet into the subject line.

Geoff - London

[personal profile] knights_king 2015-04-19 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
[He was exhausted. In the first descent, the crashing tsunamis forced Arthur to rush to help people in a few places, while London was still outside of that area of influence. Despite that, it wasn't as if he wasn't needed there--the crime-rate surged in times like that. He had to help, somehow. Even then, the shape in the sky was terrifying. He couldn't tell what it was, but he could only assume it was something tied to all the mysterious phenomena involved with himself and all other Numbered.

This was worse than anything else he had dealt with, before. Only after a few hours, Arthur had pushed himself to an immense limit and--

Sitting there, as if nothing in the world was wrong, was Geoff. Arthur stared at him, unsure of what he should have said in that situation. Ask him if he was responsible? Ask if he could help? Arthur was only certain that the look of someone relaxing in that situation was infuriating to him.]

[Geoff will look at Arthur, give him a brief winning smile and shake his head sorrowfully before returning to taking notes.

...okay no actually he stops.]
It is terrible, yet there is a small glimmer of hope. [A sad smile.] It seems that most armed forces on the planet have ceased their violence for the moment. Human nature at least allows for bonding together in the face of danger.

What? [He had begun running, checking around to see where the damage had spread. Fortunately, London was untouched at the time, but he still had to get to the teleporter.

Arthur was stopped entirely by news that he didn't know. Did Geoff read about this online?]


How do you know that? Twitter's just talking about earthquakes and floods.

I speak to most leaders of this planet, and have attempted to contact as many as possible since this morning.

Your country and Brazil seem to have a momentary ceasefire, as well.

alilyinthemoonslight: (Moonlight - Cloak)

Badri, Locke City;

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2015-04-19 03:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Nope.

Nope, nope, nope.

This is far, far and away beyond "too much." It all began happening in the middle of Lily's shift at Espresso Yourself. Needless to say, she had to cut that short. She didn't imagine that anyone would dare complain.

She had to get home. She had to, physically, check and make sure Winter was okay. That Jasmine was, that Marina was, she had to get hold of Rakka, and Raye, and...

Well, any pretenses of keeping a low profile fly right out the window, as she does much the same. Glowing cape billowing out behind her, Cure Moonlight rockets across the city, a small, furry creature zipping across in her wake. The newly reborn fairy, Cologne, makes no commentary about her recklessness - now is not the time.

It's hard to pay attention to much beyond her destination, when she sees it - Badri Barkley, someone she had last seen atop the Orbital Elevator, arguing with Geoff Benwick. Things mentioned and brought forth lately cross her mind, as do her past suspicions, and just how... casually he's taking this. She stops cold in mid-air, and upon catching up, Cologne casts her a worried look... but it's not enough.

Cure Moonlight suddenly drops out of the sky, landing dead center in front of him. She speaks calmly enough, but the tension of just what's happening in the sky above her, and her worry, bleeds through.]


You seem to be taking this rather well.
bridgeburning: (003)

[personal profile] bridgeburning 2015-04-20 01:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, hello!

[She receives a bright smile and is offered some of the popcorn.]

Do you want some popcorn? You Earthlings like to consume popcorn when you are watching a good show, don't you?

I have... let me see, they put grease on it here, and then put things on that grease. [He stick s a finger into the grease on top of the bag in his hand and licks it off after.] This one is with cinnamon and sugar, I think.
alilyinthemoonslight: (Moonlight - Horror)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2015-04-20 03:38 pm (UTC)(link)
A good show?!

[Moonlight stares at him, slightly aghast. Cologne casts a worried look in her direction, but still stays relatively quiet.] This... this is a hell of a lot more than that!

[She throws an arm out towards the sky, indicating ... well, the obvious.]

How can you be so calm about this? People are panicking! In danger! [She frowns. Of course, there are ways and reasons he could be calm, if some people's theories were right. Even now though, she feels some tug to give the benefit of the doubt.]

dragon_blossom: (Arms crossed looking at you)

Young - Locke

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-04-19 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There's been a sense of things coming to a head for a while now - more pink lights firing up, more strange lifeforms awakening, and something in the air, it seems.

Now there's something in and above the air making it a lot more definite, a massive serpent to dwarf anything they'd seen so far crashing into the Earth, reports of earthquakes, tsunamis, talk of the end of the world. Not if any of the numbered can help it. Whatever the cause - and she hopes that something that big waking up means that needs to - she wishes she had information that wasn't filtered through hysteria, because that's going to make her panic more too.

She wasn't home when it started, but she's quick to head home, hoping that Lily, Jasmine, and Winter all have the same idea, not paying attention to whoever like that lady moving along in the same direction at the same speed as her. ]
vice_captain: (Default)

[personal profile] vice_captain 2015-04-20 01:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Good afternoon.

[The greeting is a bit formal but friendly, and the woman next to her simply keeps up her pace.]

Where are you headed?
dragon_blossom: (Staredown)

[personal profile] dragon_blossom 2015-04-20 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
...afternoon.

[ Okay, they can go the same direction at the same pace. The voice is familiar, though. ]

Home. I need to get home and then try to figure out what to do from there.

charcoalfeather: (What's wrong with this ring?)

Young; Locke

[personal profile] charcoalfeather 2015-04-19 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[In a way, Rakka suspected something like this would happen. The strange occurrences over the last few months, all of the pink lights, the monster attacks, the doppelgangers....

It was just like something out of her RPGs. Only, this was actually happening.

It was the rumbling that tipped her off first. She and Fougere quickly burst outside, looking up just in time to spot the serpent so far above them in the air.

Nope. Oh god nope. She couldn't handle that sort of thing. A snake like that was a final boss if she ever saw one.... except it wasn't, was it? It was an animal that would help them...

Right?

Rakka was already running towards town, flipping open her Heart Perfume to become Cure Feather. She had to be faster now. She had to find everyone. She had to get to Raye, and Jasmine and Marina and winter and Emi and...

A pole. There was a goddamn pole in the way. She stumbled back, more surprised then hurt. Fougere would have been quick to reprimand her, but not now.
]
vice_captain: (2)

[personal profile] vice_captain 2015-04-20 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Are you all right?

[A hand comes up, lightly pressing against Rakka's back to steady her, and Young looks at her inquiringly.]
charcoalfeather: (The crows?)

[personal profile] charcoalfeather 2015-04-21 12:22 am (UTC)(link)
Ah! [Rakka jumps a little and whips around. Noticing that it was Young, she calmed down. But only a little.]

I'm sorry, I got so worried that I wasn't looking where I was going.

originaloddcouple: (Horrified)

Meredith - Las Vegas

[personal profile] originaloddcouple 2015-04-19 06:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Running from the law was slightly less difficult than they imagined. For one thing, so far no one had seen through their ingenious disguises. For another, the police (and the public at large) seemed pretty preoccupied with the horrifying damage to the world to worry about two thieves.

Wearing big bushy fake mustaches, the couple find themselves shooting befuddled looks toward the sky as they make their way through the streets. They aren't really sure what to do. Should they help people? They aren't really sure where the main damage is. And what could they offer, really? They were useless in a fight. And just generally.

So at the moment they're just. Walking. Stopping every now and then. Right now they've stopped not more than a few yards away from the alien. Rubbing their faces anxiously.

calmelancholy: (Default)

You two should talk to Badri.

He would approve of those moustaches.
originaloddcouple: (Excited Duo)

[personal profile] originaloddcouple 2015-04-20 04:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh hey, that guy. They logically decide to casually stroll up to the alien as though they're best friends and not someone they've never actually talked to.]

Oh, hey Meredith! You think so?

He does seem pretty relaxed about that kind of stuff.

How are you doing though?

[They leave it up to interpretation as to whether that's a general question or if they specifically mean the... current predicament.]

[It's finally here, it has to be. The feeling of dread that had been hanging over her head for days and weeks... all of it seemed to come to a head all at once. Something... whatever the fuck it is, is going nuts up in the sky and smashing the crap out of the planet. The reports are indistinct but people are already being hurt and dying.


AND THEN THERE'S THIS MOTHERFUCKER OVER HERE!]


Hey!

[The sight of any of the aliens is enough to set her off, but seeing Badri just chilling out and enjoying the show is too goddamned far and she's already stomping over, ignoring the protests coming from Senketsu.

If Badri tries to offer her any popcorn she'll slap the bowl out of his hand and reach down to attempt to grab his shirt and haul him up forcefully.]

[Also walking briskly and with determination? None other than Saretha Kaiser, who is exiting her store's building at about the time she catches sight of Young across the street. Needless to say, with what's happening overhead and the world shaking, that rather distinctly influences her direction.]

Maryann Young!

vice_captain: (Default)

Let's cut to the chase, because you know very well what this is.

[She doesn't even have to look up to indicate it, does she? She's sure she doesn't. Young always struck her as perceptive enough. Even if Saretha's current trust of her is... questionable.

She knows the answers here are going to dictate her opinion one way or another.]
