"Indeed it has and you seem like the perfect captain to serve under." Rust almost purred out with his trademark predatory grin as he went about helping out with the gathering of funds. He happily accepted the glass of rum taking a solid swig as he looked about at the others before settling his gaze on Infrared. "Just for the record. I'm well aware you're from Atlas. If you rat me out to them then I promise you. You'll wish for the death I gave the fang.'

In response to Cordell's cheering Infrared joked,"One of us is already famous before and the other three of us still won't be famous afterwards because.we would rather keep our wealth secret."
On the other hand, Rust's threat does not intimidate her. "One, I won't know where you are like right after we depart. Ding! Two, I did not see how the Fang died so that's not a effective threat. Ding! Three, you just assumed I know who you are. For the record, I do, but you did not know that. Ding! Sin tally: 3. Sentence: trying to tell that to the face of my handler." Confident she just roasted Rust she took a long sip from the offered rum. If not for him though, Infrared can totally ensure her intoxication.

After given permission to handle the crown Solar looked over the ancient crown with intense fascination. She held the crown up to her face and inspected every jewel and angle there was to look at. Hey eyes sparkled as brightly as the crown itself with intense curiosity Who made this? Why did they make this? How did they make this? Can it be made again? and most importantly to her...What can it do?

She knew this was the exact opposite of what Cordell had just instructed but she didn't care, not when her answers were staring at her in the face. Infrared and Rust looked to be arguing about something while Akel and Cordell were the farthest away from her, seizing her opportunity Solar quickly placed the crown atop her head.
Or so she attempted to anyway.

The crown stopped just touching the top of her head with a *clink as her horns got in the way of actually wearing it. Solar's expression changed from gleeful excitement to horrified as she realized what happend. Despite this she continued to force the crown over her horns despite it being a clear impossibility. After several irritated attempts she began to get experimental, first she simply let the crown dangle on her horn and concluded it did nothing, next she let the crown sit atop her horns and concluded failure, lastly she let her her whole head bend backwards and let the crown sit on her face. "Aw come on! Why do I have horns!?" Solar raged to herself as she angrily threw the crown on the ground in a childish attempt at breaking it.
Solar Rasie "What's this thing? What does it do? Can I play with it!?"

(OOC: Oh my... ^_^;; )



The moment the Sorcerer's Crown hit the bare stone floor of the cave, three things happened all at once. The first was Cordell's Semblance lighting up her mind's eye like a searing floodlight, the "treasure sense" picking up a spike of energy so intense it simply could not be ignored or shut out. This was accompanied by a ripple of light travelling out from the crown in all directions, for a half-second rendering every shadow and color in the entire cave washed out and reduced to a monochrome of pale gray and flat, stark white.

The third... was that a distant part of the cave ceiling abruptly began to melt, and a handful of empty structures between the crown and that spot of elevated rock were reduced to dry, ashen powder.

There was no sound, no thunderous roar to accompany the release of Dust energies, not even properly an explosion of any sort... it just was. It happened and, in an instant, the radiance was gone. The only sounds to be heard was the sizzling of super-heated rock at the distant end of the cave . . . and the falling crash of a rum glass followed by the anguished profanities of a pirate.

"AAAAARGH! SPLIT ME SIDEWAYS WITH A BLOODY CRUISE MISSILE -- THE HELLS WAS THAT?!?!" The suffering rant wasn't directed at anyone in particular -- Cordell hadn't even seen Solar toss the crown, as she'd been busy pouring a fresh round of celebratory rum. Even though the flash of light hadn't been blinding to the eyes Cordell nonetheless staggered to one side, eyes winced shut and clutching her head like she'd just received the world's worst migraine. In truth, she basically had; her Semblance had completely overloaded from the brief, unintentional energy release. "****!!"

(OOC: Sigh.)
Infrared had rushed in to catch the Crown as soon as she saw it flying at the ground but it was too late, so she had to brace the gigantic blast, daring not to wince even though the blinding flash emitted from the Crown so as to prepare her semblance. Only it didn't come. Any signs of damage of damage was out of the way at the side. What about Solar? Is she hurt? A quick inspection says no. So her worry about Solar's safety fades... and gives way to the anger born. And so she calmly walked up to her, picked up the crown and hand it back to the Captain by stuffing it in her hand before turning back to Solar and pirecing her with the stares of spears. "What. Did. The Captain. Say?" Infrared's face might have looked calm, but her twitching body language screams that she might seize her by the waist and give her a paddling any time, just like that one time when the mines she worked in collapsed and trapped her inside.

Rust hadn't seen the crown thrown and as a result when the flash of light temporarily blinded him he was caught of guard and joined Cordell in shouting. "What the fuck!"
Though unlike Cordell he recovered very quickly, nothing causing pain and his eyes regaining sight quickly, seeing Cordell's reaction he moved towards her to check if she was ok.
"Cordell! Are you alright!?"
