Beacon Academy / Re: The Beacon Holiday Formal and Party (Open to all)
« Last post by Riven on Today at 12:08:12 PM »
Budonoki mentally kicked himself when he heard Merletta refer to Samantha as 'my wife' -- it seemed that his assumption that the two had mertely been teammates and close friends far missed the mark, and he hoped he hadn't come off as insensitive in his ignorance. Accepting the offered flask with a nod, he attempted to save face. "I'm sure you meant well by it -- I shall have to have a few words with him myself. And... if there is anything I can do, Merletta, please don't hesitate to ask. Whatever the situation, I cannot help but feel that nothing good can come from tinkering with life and death so."





Lillia's laugh had certainly been a surprise; Rory's cheeks had flushed in embarrassment, but at the same time he felt the edges of his lips start to turn upwards. It was her laugh -- it wasn't judgmental or mocking, it just was... and it was infectious, too. What started with an embarrassed chuckle quickly turned into the young shield fighter laughing along with her without even rightly knowing why he was laughing. And for that simple and silly moment, all his discomfort and angst suddenly seemed so far away.

Maybe this would be a good holiday after all.

Alec waved Calen off. "Ah, I'm a washed-up old has-been. Had my day; the world is better off in the hands of the pros and people like you kids, honestly. Best advice I can give you? Live while you've got it. Don't let any old fart like me look down on you because of your youth, and take time to really enjoy the opportunities that life presents. The world has too many cares and worries, and things like that attract Grimm -- people need to remember to laugh, love, and be a little crazy now and again. But as far as hunting Grimm is concerned?" He leaned in a little closer, as if getting ready to share a secret. "If you're ever out there on your own and you find a coil of molted snake skin the size of a Bullhead... RUN." He took a sip of his mulled wine. "King Taijitu can get a lot bigger than people realize."

It was right about then that Luna had her incident with the punch bowl. Rory and Chadwick found themselves looking over as the musician, soaked with fruit juice, left for the solace of an empty table. "Ah, one sec Calen. Be right back." Pulling a clean towel from an underslung supplies drawer in the baked goods carts, the jovial baker brought it and a blackberry danish over to Luna and offered them to her with a soft smile. "Rough start to the night? Been there, trust me. Alec Chadwick, former huntsman and proprietor of 'Fabled Goods' bakery. You looked like you could use these."

(OOC: Sorry about the long-delayed response -- it's been a hectic week.)


This one seemed to be stumping more of the students, it seemed. Budonoki understood; without obvious physical signs the condition became something of a riddle. He gave a nod when Helena raised a tentative hand to answer. "Yes, go ahead miss Chlophyll. Your thoughts?"

Cordell glanced away, eyes scanning a side-screen showing data on the CRG 212. "Should be able't, yeah. And I greatly appreciate th' escort. See you in a few."

Ending the transmission, Cordell plotted an approach trajectory that would put her ship down close to the hatch then set to work continuing to stabilize her ship's wounded systems. Trailing smoke from some of its wounds, the Red Corsair swung around to fly mostly parallel with the large cargo ship while gradually moving into place. As the pirate ship touched down the magnetic clamps secured it to the outer hull; a few minutes later the main walkway slid down and Cordell, looking only slightly worse for wear, escorted the first set of crates down the ramp on a loading trolley.

This had been a near thing, and the damage to her ship clearly showed as much. Del and the Gears would do what they could but she could already guess that several systems would need an overhaul before the Red Corsair would be back at its best. When she spotted the CRG's crew she gave a short wave, gesturing to the crates. "Feel free t' have a look -- everything's on th' up-an'-up. Least I can do fer you folks after all that."

Teddy knew it was only a matter of time before something started blowing up. The way things had been going up until that point, the only thing that surprised him were that the shots were not aimed at him. They did get him out of his stupor. Whatever messed up things are happening in this town, it had clearly gotten into his head.

There was a small part of him that desperately wanted to get the hell out of dodge. If he could find his way out of the city, he could get backup and take on everything. As much as he hated to run back in there, he could not just leave Malina and Calen in this hellhole by themselves.

"Good God, man. Now's not the time for small talk! Make sure your aura stays up. This city is messing with my head, and I'm afraid it might make us drop it." he said, moving slightly faster than Calen as they went toward the gunshot. "I...*sigh* I-I'm sorry. You're right. We check it out, visit this store, and come back to the wall if we don't find anything."

Justice was not angry. Anger would imply that he had been slighted in a significant way. No. What Justice felt was a palpable sense of disappointment. Here he had been hoping that this leader would be a man after his own heart, playing into a long-term strategy to ensure the betterment of his people. It would have been simple enough to put on an act for the people attempting to negotiate with him, play the part of a fool. But, alas, it seemed that he was truly a lecherous moron.

Justice turned his back to the leader. Not only was the man not worth his time, but it seemed the boy had managed to start talking to him. Good spirit in that kid. He shall make a good leader once he gets control of his emotions.

Walking up to Camelia, Justice moved in closer than was was normally considered socially acceptable. Justice attempted to talk quietly, but his boisterous speaking pattern did not lend itself well to whispering. "Just let me know if he gives you any trouble. I can give him an in-depth lesson on the capacities of the central nervous system." he said, with a smile that was trying to be comforting, but was probably more creepy than anything.

It was not by intention that Juno's mind was elsewhere for the majority of the trip, nor was it any aspect of Dr. Budoneki's teachings. Rather, far too much had happened in the past weeks for him to not be deep in thought. Caja's kidnapping, Acero's injuries... He was to blame for both of them. He should have kept Caja in a safer place, he should have been more careful with the weapon he was using... He should have just been better, and there was no way around it.

While Phi was busy cataloging flora and fauna on the short hike to the campsite, Juno remained preoccupied, lost in thought only to to snap back to attention when everyone else seemed to stop walking.

The tent kit was a fickle thing, unlike most he was used to, but with Phi's assistance in terms of optimal placement, he managed, setting up somewhat in between the supply drop and the signal booster. Not that he intended to spend the majority of his time on his scroll, rather, the proximity to the booster was good for Phi. She liked to search things up almost constantly, and having connection drop out tended to make the AI somewhat... peeved.

Nevertheless, with the tent done and a small congregation forming around their instructor, Juno listened in, taking a spot within the crowd as Budoneki explained the topic of their exercise. Dust was not something Juno was rather familiar with in terms of actual use. The closest he got to dust use were the power cells that allowed the hardlight generator to operate. This wasn't to say he was disinterested in the matter, but... he had his concerns. As far as he knew, dust was a fickle thing. Too much aura would cause the crystals to activate, where too little would yield no reaction at all. Given that an unintentional activation could very well cause a natural disaster, patience and care were of the essence.

After accepting the bag, Juno took a seat and laid out the crystals. A few moments passed as he relaxed his breathing, then began with the lightning dust. It was... odd, close, but resistant. Something regarding its frenetic nature made connecting with the element difficult. While he eventually got the damned thing to cast its yellow light, there was too much effort involved for it to feel natural. Shaking his head, he set down the crystal and picked up another one, blue in color this time.

"Windpath." Phi replied before Juno could even open his mouth to speak, prompting the young man to glance over at her. Feeling a need to elaborate, Juno considered his response for a few seconds before speaking.

"Somehow, they had gotten Caja all the way to Windpath without alerting anyone. I don't have an address to where she was held, but I have a general idea of how to get there from the port." To be frank, that was as much as he could remember about where it was. At the time, his focus was on far more pressing matters, most notable of which being Caja's well-being. In retrospect, it would have been a better call were he to instruct Phi to note the facility's address, but there wasn't anything he could do about that matter now.

"It's still bright outside, so we could go down to the city. Or maybe a tour around the Academy? Uh, Uh, I know! we could go to the forest! It's called Emerald Forest right? i'm sure there are Grimm everywhere! I could really use a fight right now, the trip here was way to boring and quiet"
A lot of other ideas were floating around in Kisha's mind but she couldn’t get her thoughts of from going to the emerald forest, and as long nobody else was saying something, she would stick with that idea

Yeah I know I was making a joke. Also if I made Ragna, it would be like Ismael WIP. Super edgy and super fuckling dumb.
