Re: [IG/PDF: Open Social] Candlemass in Naris

The bells chimed for the last and first time of the year, sounding out midnight. As the last boom faded, Naris fell to deep silence. The first firework was a simple white flare, silent, soft and followed by another, and then another. Across the barracks and courtyard, for a few stretched moments, no...

Re: [IG/PDF: Open Social] Candlemass in Naris

As the carols concluded, some stayed by the chapel to listen to the sermon, some ventured inside to contemplate and light a candle. Others drifted away, lost in their own thoughts. Sounds from the kitchens heralded the coming of something quite special, Candlemass cake, sauces and steaming puddings....

Re: [IG/PDF: Open Social] Candlemass in Naris

The child ceased weeping into her father's shirt quite so freely as Vayne spoke to her. She looked with startled, shining wet green eyes from Hat to 'Yarrick' with confusion plastered across her small face. One of these adults was telling a fib . She looked up at her father for confirmation, and the...

Re: [IG/PDF: Open Social] Candlemass in Naris

There was a sudden silence behind Hat, in which one could have heard a grenade pin drop, before a small child started audibly crying. " Wh-hat does she meeaaaaan ?" Picking the little girl up, her father attempted to shush and rock the infant on his shoulder, while staring at the Chem Dog ...

[IG/PDF: Open Social] Candlemass in Naris

I heard the bells on this cold day; Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat: Of peace on earth, good will to men. And in despair I bowed my head: “There is no peace on earth,” I said, “For hate is strong and mocks the song, Of peace on earth, good will to men.” Then peal...

Re: [Open - Population cap: 6] [Seasonal] Candlemass Gate Duty

Jak Rook arrived in good time, and (for him) was in reasonable spirits once it became clearer that the accident was one of genuine tragedy rather than idiotic misadventure. Collecting the child himself, and leaving the Krieger and Neskovich to support the shivering young PDF trooper between them, th...

Re: [Open - Unrestricted] [Seasonal] Candlemass Dinner and Dance

Shortly, the central lamps flicker back to life, adding to the warm glow of the hall. The music continues long into the night, though the staff do depart once the lights are restored. Upon midnight the clock on the wall chimes merrily, and the music pauses for a moment. It is Candlemass Day, you've ...

Re: [Open - Unrestricted] [Seasonal] Candlemass Dinner and Dance

The tech adepts, unable to locate Kosomov, continue to complain, but settle upon the wall panelling that she had interfered with. By the end of Luca's song, there will be light again. The staff in the meantime, attempt to fend off Blutock from the more delicate gas lamps and decorative candle sticks...

Re: [Open - Unrestricted] [Seasonal] Candlemass Dinner and Dance

As Luca plays, the night staff continue to fetch lamps and candles, and the hall is once again thoroughly lit, but with a much more peaceful glow than the one offered by the lums and emergency lighting rigged up originally. The smell of hot vox tubes fades, the initial surprise over, and at an ever ...

Re: [Open - Population cap: 6] [Seasonal] Candlemass Gate Duty

The PDF officer squints blearily at the Lieutenant before firmly but carefully pushing her to arm's length and throwing up more water in the opposite direction. When it finally ceases, he is doubled over and shaking, but awake. It would seem whatever water he fell into, wasn't exactly safe to drink....

Re: [Open - Unrestricted] [Seasonal] Candlemass Dinner and Dance

A slow, soft series of pops and pings sees the regular lighting in the room die under the stress of the sudden power surge. With a soft fump , the music fades out, leaving the vox officer scrambling from his seat to unplug the units before another surge blows them out, and does actual damage. Units ...

Re: [Open - Population cap: 6] [Seasonal] Candlemass Gate Duty

The PDF officer looks at the warm cup, and mumbles. Realising he's being ordered to drink, he tries, and swallows a few mouthfuls, before leaning away from the Krieger and vomiting copious amounts of water onto the floorboards. Far more than was even possibly in the cup. It seems his own fall into t...

Tired, hazel eyes met the piercing stare, ever so slightly unfocused and glassy. "I don't know..." the man shook his head and his brow furrowed with effort, "She can't have been more than ten minutes in there. The- most of it was trying to get back on the bank. There wasn't- footholds...

Re: [Open - Population cap: 6] [Seasonal] Candlemass Gate Duty

The young guardsman regards the lieutenant with some confusion, unsure if this may be an embarrassment tactic or something helpful. But the guards have the guns, so regardless, it's best to do as he's told. Painfully slowly, and with numb, fumbling hands, he succeeds in getting down to his under sho...

The young man wraps the coat mostly around the girl, his hands clearly numb and shaking, but covers himself some as well. His teeth are chattering too much to respond, but he appears in good enough health to weather the cold much better than the child. His uniform, whilst soaked and collecting snow,...

Re: [Open - Unrestricted] [Seasonal] Candlemass Dinner and Dance

Several of the staff take the opportunity to escape the spinning dervish of Blutock's creation, and stagger back to their stations, or indeed escape entirely. The wine cauldron is still being manned and replenished, but the food station is now serve-yourself, with empty dishes being cleared away. A ...

Re: [Open - Population cap: 6] [Seasonal] Candlemass Gate Duty

The refugees look less than pleased at Lelantos tracking them with a weapon, and don't seem to relish the inspection. However they weather it with the tired patience of those used to the indignity of being under the guards' boot heel. However, other than the lanterns and some ration bars, they carry...
