Don’t Feed Them Pigeons After Midnight

[tomfoolery] Poisoning pigeons in the park!

But not really, it’s late and all the pigeons are safe, tucked away in their little pigeon coops — Or are they? It turns out the pigeons of Grant Park, the ones that stick around through the winter, don’t actually have any beds to sleep in, they just sort of.. wander around.. bob their heads like those wobbling-bouncy-spring toy things that people put on their dashboards (those things are so fucking creepy).

Sarita and Joey are wandering, maybe on this side, maybe on the other — the choice is theirs on this fine evening — they hunt, for what? Something, anything. Something to test the ragabashes under the no moon.

Dice Rolled:[ 5 d10 ] 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 (Success x 4 at target 7)

[tomfoolery] So they walk, human skins. They travel along that bizarre snake-like walk-way into the park proper, leafless trees and ever-greens alike scatter their surroundings and still they continue, ever watchful. It wouldn’t be the first time if a snuffling and squealing were heard in GP-After-Dark. But no, there will be no piggies tonight, for once, the piggies are all at home sleeping nice and cozy.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other dangers, or just strange things in general. They start noticing them the closer they get to the huge fountain. It looms up ahead, lifeless, motionless, the lake on their left and the reddish concrete of the area before them.

They both see pigeons, many of them. Far too many. They both know it, and there is seemingly no reason for their gathering – no bakers loaves lying around or other sources of food – just pigeons, bobbing their heads and shitting everywhere.

The sight will put Joey on edge, make her feel like somethings wrong but be unable to locate exactly why (beyond the many birds).

Sarita on the other hand, gets something much more clear when she looks around the area surrounding the fountain. A flash, a shape, about knee high with grabby little paws and big ears. Standing on two legs – bipedal with a short muzzle and needle like teeth. It appears briefly – for only a split second – snatches a pigeon then disappears again.

Then another one appears, two, three perhaps? The numbers are unclear – was that the same one as before or a different one all together?

[Killswitch] It’s been an interesting week, full of hijinks, adventure, and oh so much annoyance. Joey figured it was high time she took out one of her auspicemates for a little dinner, a little dancing in the dark, a little biting of the Wyrm. And considering she and Sarita have something in common beyond their moon hanging invisible in the sky somewhere, such as a certain kinswoman and a certain metis Modi running off into the night to elope or something, the Strider had been a rather obvious choice.

So they’re out in the park, Joey dressed to blend into the shadows in a black hoodie and her black cap, dark washed jeans and newly dedicated footwear.

She’s mostly silent, but it’s hardly oppressive. There are weights on her shoulders pertaining to pack and sept and so on and so forth, but tonight she wears it all rather well, with a bit of humor hovering around the corners of her mouth.

Her steps stop when they approach the big fountain and its masses of birds, the square filled with the flutter of wings and the cooing of pigeons. “What the…”

She grins at Sarita. “We enter a Hitchcock remake when I wasn’t lookin’?”

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] Sarita walks alongside Joey, her little smile on her face as she keeps her eyes out. The Strider is curious as to what the night will bring. She’s had her ups and downs, particularly over the last week or two, but a couple good experiences have her on an up currently. And now she’s out, doing a hunt with Joey at last. She’s been looking forward to this for a while. It’ll be good for her.

The length of her duster swishes against her legs as she watches, and she sees the pigeons. A brow raises; interesting. She takes note of it, glances to Joey, and looks around. She’s keyed in tonight, for some reason or another…maybe she’s on extra alert because she wants to make a good impression, or maybe she’s just got a bit of paranoia running down her spine. Regardless, dark brown eyes look to the fountain, and she takes stock of the appearing little beasties.

“If it’s a Hitchcock remake, then we’re looking at some crazy-ass Guillermo del Toro, Tim Burton kinda remake.” She keeps an eye on the critters, trying to get a better look and–more importantly–not lose the little fuckers. “Fountain. Ch-ch-ch-check it out.”

[tomfoolery] There they go, another one — Joey saw that one, yep.

Blink

Grab!

Blink

They actually see one of them eating a pigeon, warping in and out of existence with its meal wrapped up in greedy paws and its nibbling little snout ripping out bird-guts.

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] “Oookay…” She raises an eyebrow, frowning as she watches the little critter jump in and out of time and space, chowing down on pigeon. “Thaaat’s just not right.”

She looks at Joey a moment, nods her head to the right and starts to creep in that direction, so as to take more of a flanking position. She creeps carefully, focusing to activate the Milky Eye. They can take it by surprise, potentially, or at least get more of a sense of what it’s up to by watching from different angles.

[Killswitch] Joey’s brows lift. She blinks, then has to shake her head as if to rid herself of some annoying buzz. Or snarl. There’s not much she can do for Hunter tonight, not much anyone can do except stay out of his way until he can get himself under control again.

And besides, she has to figure out what’s eating the pigeons. Not that it’s not unappreciated, there are far too many of the little fuckers in this city, dive bombing her car. And after the hours spent scouring Cassius last night, Joey’s not really in the mood to clean up bird shit any time soon. So anything that makes it lessen is okay in her book. Except these things might move on to other prey.

“Whoa,” she says, when she sees something warp in and out of existence. “Gremlins around a bunch’a water, this should be fuckin’ fantastic.” Reaching up to her hat and the button pinned near the brim (red warming label WARNING: SELECTIVE HEARING), she adjusts the fall of her messenger bag. “So we should probably bulk up a bit, yeah?” Saying that, she looks around, making sure it’s just the Raggies and the fast little creatures and their dinner before she flows through forms, ending in Hispo of all forms. Sarita goes off to take on a flanking position, blurring into the darkness. Joey is nothing if not helpful to other tricksters.

Padding forward on four paws, she snarls, drawing the attention away from the other Ragabash.

[-1G soak!]

[tomfoolery] Joey effectively takes the heat. The Strider looks tastier, browner, like the pigeons. Joey on the other hand looks tough and worn, a little ragged around the edges despite her youth – despite those pretty freckled cheeks and her messy blonde hair.

She’ll feel a little nip at first, then another.

Ouch! on one of her back legs she spots one of the creatures appear, bite her, then disappear again. The same on her back, riding her like some great beast it bites down into her fur and flesh.

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] As she stalks around, she shifts herself up into War Farm. Hispo’s great, but the Strider just finds herself more comfortable in a semi-bipedal form. She stalks around, masked by her blur, and tries to stealthily creep up on the little pigeon-eating motherfucker.

[Killswitch] They saw the one, or was it two? But now there are bites on Joey’s leg and back. The Rotagar breathes in, an almost startled sound to find that she did so well at drawing the fire.

Sarita continues toward the first one she saw, the one still crunching away at some poor headless pigeon. There are who knows how many others around, bamfing in and out like fucking Nightcrawler. Joey thought he was pretty cool in that movie, but seriously, this is getting ridiculous.

Joey has an idea, though, a way to try and count their chickens, as it were. And wasn’t this what she’d told Sarita at her challenge? That being a Ragabash meant being creative in combat, not simply running in blind and destroying whatever they find? Chicago has never been that easy for the Fenrir, after all.

She flows upwards into her war form. Unfortunately, there’s no way to warn Sarita before Joey lifts her great hand-paws, no way to let her know what’s coming. Joey draws on a gift from Eagle, brings her hands together, and she claps like she really wants Tinkerbell to live.

Tom the Pigeon eater continues to chew, seemingly unaffected, so too does Fooler – Biting down again on Joey’s now much larger leg. It appears in thin air, above the ground and clamps onto her thigh, hanging by its teeth and paws.

But one isn’t so lucky, some might call him bob, others might call him Ben. His mother calls him benjabert. Poor Benjabert gets hit by the blast wave, sprawls over and stops blinking out of existence, he lies there stunned, helpless.

She may well kill it by virtue of her strength, but the hand is balled into a fist so she’s at least not ripping it to pieces yet, more hoping to stun the shit out of it.

That glowing shockwave emanates out from her, dropping one of the creatures to the ground, and if she could in this form, her mouth would quirk with disappointment. Just one? Really? Damn it.

There are still things trying to gnaw on her leg. Joey looks down at the thing, ineffectively trying to give her fur a trim. Reaching down with one great hand-paw, she goes to grab them.

[tomfoolery] [Tom, JJ, Benjabert – Vanish. Post incoming!]

[tomfoolery] What are these things? They’re almost like gremlins, but they have fur. Short fur. Like a Jack Russell. They behave like them too, nipping and yapping and generally being a fricken pain in the ass. At least for Sarita that is, Joey’s ones are quite well behaved actually. It must be her motherly instinct, they see her and they poke their tongues out, bite her toes and ankles. So what does Joey do?

She snatches them both up, and bashes their skulls together — repeatedly.

Clong

Blang!

Crack!

Splat!

Blood and mush and brain juice goes flying all over the Rotagar’s hands leaving her looking like a messy toddler that just came out of arts and crafts time. Meanwhile Sarita is drop kicking one of them, she plants her foot into it and it goes flying — then disappears along with all the others, even Benjabert is taken from the field of battle by JohnJacobJingleHeimerSchmidt. The little terrier cackles as he’s leaving:

This isn’t the last you’ve seen of me!! JohnJacobJingleHeimerSchmidt out! — FOR NOW!” Sounding horribly human and actually well spoken, at least for a small furred creature that eats pigeons.

This leaves the Gaians alone, confused perhaps.

[Killswitch] She cracks the two of hers together over and over, and when all that remains is a mushy, bone-and-viscera mess? Joey drops the remains to the concrete and shakes her paws out like she’s just finished washing dishes. Wiping those paws on her thighs, she slides one a little back from her hip, about where her messenger bag might be were she human-formed. Pulling out the world’s tiniest compact mirror (at least in relation to her current size) she carefully pops it open and concentrates on peeking over to the otherside, trying to see if she can spot anything there, like where the creatures have gone.

[Peeking! I don’t know the diff]
Dice Rolled:[ 3 d10 ] 1, 7, 7

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] She watches the damn thing vanish in mid-air and then JJ spouts off before disappearing as well. The expression on the Strider’s War-Form face is clear:

Okay, what the fuck?

Just to be safe, she moves to Joey, putting her back to the other Ragabash. No sneaking up on these two now…not that this matters so much when the fuckers may conceivably be able to appear ON THEIR FACE. She keeps an eye on the vicinity, waiting to see if they’re popping back up.

[Killswitch] The look on Sarita’s face is nothing compared to the look on Joey’s as she uses her compact to let her see through to the other side. Her eyes go blank and dark, blind to this side. Her expression changes, though, as much as it can in this form. She lets out a huff.

With an effort, she draws her gaze back. “What the hell.

This is where things get hairy for a Beta. Do they cross over to confront them all over again? If they can break into the thing she saw…maybe…

She turns to Sarita.

They are in the Umbra,” she says in the majestic High Tongue. “They ride a machine there, powered by five. Three now. If you cross with me, I need to know you will not hold back. War form is for claws and teeth, not fists.

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] “It’s on,” she replies in the same Tongue, turning to look at Joey. “Now that we know more what we’re dealing with. Make the call, I am with you.”

One of these days, she needs to come up with High Tongue words for ‘Donkey Kong.’

[Killswitch] Joey nods, the downward dip serious, the upward flip jaunty. “The machine has a saw and a claw, the claw limp as well as one leg. Look for a means of disabling the whole. If you cannot, target the drivers with me.

Take this,” she says, pulling a button bound to concrete from her hip and handing it to Sarita. “Concrete. It will strengthen you.” Orders, suggestions and warnings really, given, Joey holds up the compact, offering the assistance of the reflective surface. “Be safe. They will be expecting us.

[tomfoolery] It is just like Joey said, a great machine, taller than either of them and just as wide, just as bulky — if not bulkier. One arm is limp, weaver spiders crawl across it, dragging webs and nibbling at things, sparks appearing from their jaws.

Yet more spiders crawl around on the left leg of the thing. Upon spotting the Gaians it moves with a rrrrrrvvttrvrvvvvvttt then lets out a huge jet of a steal out the steel pipes which protrude out its back.

The Blade spins, the drivers — situated in the arm, leg , chest and head — pull their levers and press their buttons. Oh it’s on alright.

[tomfoolery] So, this is basically what happens.

Joey rips its arm off and stabs it in the chest a few times and triggers some sort of explosion of the engine systems, overloading or whatever. Explooode. Bam.

The drivers all incinerate in umbral flame.

[Killswitch] Short version: ‘SPLODE! Shrapnel goes flying. Joey and Sarita slo-mo dive away like the action stars they are, hit the ground and roll. Rising, they dust themselves off, put on their sunglasses.

Take them of for no reason.

And put them back on again.

– The end.

[Sarita Ecos de la Risa] YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
