28th-Aug-2007 11:52 pm - Home Sweet Home
Bookworm
Who: Kal Rielly
When: July 3, Evening
Where: A Farmhouse outside of Town
Invited: Anyone
Status: Incomplete


Kal sighed as she stepped out of the house and looked at the yard where the horses were grazing. The house was empty, in good condition, had strong shutters, and a very secure barn. The house itself was an okay size, four large bedrooms, a nice living area, a huge kitchen, and a rather fancy dining room. It had been a well loved house when people had lived there, but it was vacant now. From the stuffiness of the air, it had been a long time since someone had been there. On the especially bright side, no one had died there violently.

21st-Aug-2007 09:29 pm - [Marie] Rest and relaxation
Who: Marie
When: Evening, July 3rd
Where: Haven central park
Invited: Anybody
Status: Incomplete

Marie had long enjoyed sunsets. There was a lot less light pollution, which made sunset-watching and stargazing much more viable activities.

And, after all, she was capable of defending herself in case somebody came along who meant something bad, so she wasn't too worried. Beginning mage though she was, she wasn't too worried.

"Once, I'd have been frightened," she mused to herself as the light faded. But all was peaceful, and calm, and that's how she liked it.
16th-Jul-2007 09:04 pm - [Marie] Sidetrack
Who: Marie
When: Late afternoon, July 3rd
Where: In town
Invited: Akkarin, anybody else
Status: Incomplete

Marie sped towards the small cul-de-sac where the town's medical personnel were. As she passed the burnt-out house, she saw Akkarin, and slowed down. "Akkarin, you seen any of our doctors or healers lately?" she called. Maybe one of their healing specialists would hear her; in any case, she had to find somebody soon.

(OOC: This is to bring Akkarin, and anybody else on this side of town who wants to be brought into Nerdanel's thread into that thread.)
15th-Jul-2007 04:21 pm - [Nerdanel] A New Arrival
Portrait
Who: Nerdanel
When: Late afternoon, July 3rd
Where: A crossroads at the edge of town
Invited: Everyone
Status: Open

The air had settled around her when she woke, strange and heavy, cooling the red splotches on her black-and-blue skin.Collapse )

Half a day later, with many pauses and many slow, hobbling steps, the elven woman entered Haven, coming from somewhere out of the fields, leaning on a straight branch like a staff. Bruised and dirty, her dress in bloody shreds in several places she was nonetheless holding herself up straight, and though her eyes were clouded as though with weariness, pain and grief, a strange light shone in them.

Standing near a crossroads, a makeshift bandage around her leg, Nerdanel waited.
28th-May-2007 04:10 pm - Fire and rain
Who: Marie
When: July 2nd
Where: A residential building downtown, mid-morning
Invited: All and Sundry
Status: Incomplete

It was going to be a hot day.

The meager inhabitants of Haven, Illinois were going about their daily duties, or just trying to get things done before the heat swept down on them. Some were relaxing, glad they didn't have anything to do, and reflecting on all the changes that had happened to them.

In the quiet morning, a building began to smoke, slight bits of smoke and then more, as flame began to flicker in the windows. The smoke was unpleasant, but even more of a concern was the fact that the building had neighbors - other buildings that could also catch on fire.

Marie stopped her bike as she saw the smoke. Knowing that she couldn't extinguish a fire that big, she raced for the cul-de-sac where several others lived. There were several people who could extinguish the fire and save the other buildings. That wasn't a problem. The problem was getting them fast enough and figuring out what caused the fire (she hoped it wasn't her), and finding out what had caused it. People who could extinguish fires or not, they needed to know what happened so that they wouldn't have to worry about it. "Fire!" she yelled.
20th-May-2007 06:05 pm - [Marie] Backyard Safety
Who: Marie, Aleila
Where: Rowland House, backyard
When: July 1, during In The Kitchen, before the completion of A Crack in Space/Time
Invited: Open
Status: Incomplete

Marie had barely stepped out and onto the lawn when Aleila ran out, as if in a total panic. Marie couldn't imagine what had caused her to panic. She hadn't reacted badly to any of the inhabitants, so what had happened?

Nani ga atta, her mind mused, pulling the Japanese phrase up randomly.

"Aleila?" she asked, reaching out to stop the woman. "Are you okay? What happened? Did somebody start a fight?"

She wanted to pull the woman down, sit her on the soft grass and help her calm down. She looked around. House wasn't going up in smoke, no enemies that she could see, everything should be okay, right? Darnit, Alexei, you've made me paranoid, she mused.
19th-May-2007 11:21 pm - Puttin' On The Feedbag
Simon Jester Precious Metals
Who: Michelle Webster
When: Mid-afternoon, July 1
Where: The Rowland House (specifically, the Dining Room)
Invited: Anyone and everyone in the game town
Status: Open


Michelle placed a second dish of butter on the dining room table. Pitchers of milk, water and iced tea, plates of sliced tomatos, and a few other fresh vegetables from Alexei and Lleaseaf's food box covered the table. The dining room was crowded to overflowing. All the residents of the Rowland house, neighbors and quite a few newcomers as well. The room was a little warm with the heat of so many bodies, and rather noisy as multiple conversations slowly pushed the noise level higher. Michelle smiled to hear it. It had been a long time since she'd seen so many people in one place.

"Are you sure you don't need any help?" Ami asked.

"Yes," Michelle said. "You just sit. It's all done except for bringing the food to the table. I can handle that."

She ducked back into the kitchen. The ears of corn steamed in a huge bowl, fresh out of the pot of boiling water. Michelle carried it out and handed it off, then returned to the kitchen to pull two baking sheets of biscuits out of the oven. They smelled terrific. (Not bad if do say so myself,) Michelle thought. She piled the biscuits onto two plates and brought them out.

"Dinner," Michelle announced as she put the plates down on the table, "is served."
3rd-May-2007 02:44 pm - [Fuji] Head Hunt
Who: Fuji Syusuke
When: July 1
Where: Close to the store
Invited: Anyone
Status: Incomplete

He was slowly getting used to living in the city, Fuji had realized as he woke up this morning. Still, something bothered him. There were too many abnormal things going on, and it tickled his curiousity. He wanted to find out more. Therefore, he slipped outside, making his way down to the store where him and that guy who had that invisible friend or whatever it was as company had found that body a couple of weeks ago. Maybe, just maybe he could find some answers there... He knew he still didn't have it in him to go down to the hospital alone, the prospect of running into zombies again was not appealing to him in the least.

As he apporached the store, he stopped, frowning. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea either, come to think of it. Maybe he should just go back...

Where: The Rowland House Front Porch

It was getting dark as Kal and the horses wandered through the town. The wet horse smell was now engrained into Kal’s skin, she might just spend the rest of her life smelling like Romeo.

When: July 1, after the Rain
Invited: Open
Status: Incomplete

Kal popped her shoulders as she the familiar throb of riding began to wear on her inner thighs. Ace bumped her and Kal reached back to run her fingers through his ebony mane.
