Slip 'n' Slide Group Log

Who: Various
What: Open Post
When: M11 D23 - D24
Where: All around Blackway
Notes & Warnings: Potential prompts below the cut! Feel free to add or make up your own, especially for workspaces. Plot information.

A. Mr. Jellicles
Everything at Mr. Jellicles seemed fine three minutes ago. Children were laughing. Good natured friends were playing table tennis and joking over it. Mr. Tukkus was in his office being his usual antisocial self.

But now everything is wrong. People have run from the building because the balls from the ball pit are running amok. Bowling pins are pinging off of objects and sliding out the door. It sounds like chaos in there, and it's a chaos that's spilling out onto the street in the form of colorful plastic carnage.

There are a few people that still need help getting out, so anyone tough enough to brave bouncy ball hell would be welcomed.

B. On the Street
The day starts normally enough. People are walking down the street. Everything is calm, apparently ordinary. But then there is the most distraught noise.

“Moooooooo?”

One of Quadratus’ native oxen is sliding down the street at a brisk speed. It's not really in control of the direction its headed, either. Someone that comes out to check on it slides off in another direction, and when they bump a newspaper stand they both go off two different ways. And to make things worse, what was a firm and sure ground a second ago is, without warning, slick as ice at the next step.

C. Quite an Ordeal
The spontaneously slippery ground make it very easy to accidentally run into a friend (or enemy, or acquaintance or total stranger). Literally run into them. Indoors, inside of businesses for patrons to use help from the people around you to make it back outside. Four legs are better than two, right? Or optionally they can hide under a fixed piece of furniture together until the mess passes.

People should be careful when they make it outside, as well. Things are getting messy, and the usually very sound hovercars are even having a problem- whatever they use for traction is gone in those frictionless areas, too.

D. Optional
Create your own.

Ashe had thought he would be fine, growing up in Switzerland, he should have been good in the snow. This was hell, even with his boots he couldn't get any traction He had been slipping, falling and busting his ass, getting back up thankful for the healing and would move a few feet and fall again. It was getting old but at least he wasn't too far from home. He was in sight of Niko, but with the way he was falling he doubts he would be any help.

It will pass in a few minutes! [He calls over to his friend, before making his way in his direction. By grabbing onto a pole, and then attempting to grab a fallen rack of magazines but he just ends up sending them sliding off down the street.]

[Oops.]

It has been doing this all day.

How is it possibly this slick! [ He called back when he realized Niko called him and opps, down he went again. He groaned a bit winded this time but sat up. Thank whatever power gave him his powers still cause this was a bit. He was trying to be careful though. He knew most self afflictions do not heal. this had to be a loophole.]

I know, and are you okay man?

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-12 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
[He finally snags his friends hand and pulls him across the slickness to what he's clasped onto. But then, just to spite him, the slick lifts and purchase returns under their feet. So that just means he pulls Ashe over with him.]

Shit! [He sputters.]
corven: (Avatar >  Judging)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-13 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
[ Ashe almost feel again when the slick lifted just from being pulled over by Niko. He grabbed onto whatever Niko had been holding anyway, just to be sure.]

This place is crazy.
vengeance_driven: game, car (►►fair warning)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-13 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
This is the first time this shit has happened. [He brushes himself off, before taking position in the abandoned rover, hands on the steering wheel.] Give me a push. I need to get this off the street. [And fortunately, because they hovered, they weren't difficult to maneuver.]
corven: (Avatar > might be emo)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-13 01:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Still strange as hell.

[ Days like this Ashe wondered why he ever quit smoking in the first place. He brushed some snow off his knees and moved back into posistion to give the man a push. ] Ready?

[ he called over before he started to push expecting it to be heavy like the cars that used to come into his old shop.]
vengeance_driven: game, car (►►police car chase)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-13 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Ready. Be careful, this car is-

[He doesn't have time to warn him how light they are before he feels it starting to move.]
corven: (Avatar > Waiting for Curve)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-14 02:36 am (UTC)(link)
[ He was actually shocked with how light the car was. He made sure to adjust the force he used to push.]
vengeance_driven: game (►►battered)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-14 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
[He's quick to hit the break and park it once it's out of the way.] Shit! These things are dangerous enough. I don't even know how it lost traction without wheels.

[He gets out of the vehicle and leaves the door ajar, hoping whoever fled it will take care of the thing or it can be towed easier. He goes over to Ashe.] I guess there will be a bit of a learning curve if you learn to fix these.
corven: (Avatar >  Judging)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-20 03:35 pm (UTC)(link)
That makes no sense at all.

[ he shook his head some as he dusted off his coat waiting for Niko.]

Pretty sure my level of work, would need a scientists degree or something to understand these machines. Not that I have lifted the hood of any of them either.
vengeance_driven: pb (►►orly?)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-20 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
This shithead just left his... [He says as he gestures to the front of the rover.] We could take a look, if you want.

[Hey, if he runs off without his car, it's fair game to pick at as far as Niko is concerned. He may not be allowed to steal, but he'll look and leave everything there.]
corven: (Ashe > smiling)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-24 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
Pop the hood then.

[ Oh Ashe was game with that logic. He slipped his jacket off and drapped it over his own shoulders so he could push up his sleeves. He was too curious for his own good to see under the hood and Niko did just give him a good reason.]
vengeance_driven: pb (►►you're shitting me)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-24 02:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[He seems over-pleased to do so- maybe some fond memory of old habits is still with him. In any case, he opens it. Surprisingly for whatever tech is in there, superficially the top level looks like a classic car engine with glowing parts.]

Well, shit. At least it is nice to look at.
corven: (Avatar > Fire)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-25 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
Well, That doesn't look as strange as I expected.

[ He leaned into the engine some, looking over what he could look at.] I wonder what makes it glow.
vengeance_driven: game (►►unclevlad2)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-25 09:24 am (UTC)(link)
Hell if I know. [And then he does a quick touch- one of those that's done to make sure you don't get electrocuted. Nothing bad happens, though. It just feels like slightly warm, glowing plastic. If a little harder.]
corven: (Avatar >  Judging)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-25 11:32 am (UTC)(link)
Well, I certainly know what I plan to do soon. I want to take one of these apart.

[ He stood back up and once Niko was back he closed the hood. Sadly, Ashe wasn't about to try and dismantle it in the street. He wiped his hands on his pants by instinct.]

On that note, I have completely forgotten why I have come out at all today. [ A small chuckle escaped. Better to laugh at a shot memory, then to get mad.]
vengeance_driven: pb (►►doubtful)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-25 07:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I certainly don't. [He agrees, though maybe a little bit more grumpy than Ashe.] And I don't think it would matter if I did remember. What business would be crazy enough to stay open throughout the day!
corven: (Avatar >  Standing calm)

[personal profile] corven 2015-02-26 01:52 pm (UTC)(link)
For money? A lot of people will stay open. [ He couldn't help laugh a little more, it wasn't THAT funny but he is a little unhinged. And his friends iritation made it funnier as bad as that sounds.]

Come on, lets get off the street before that starts up again.
vengeance_driven: pb (►►dopey think)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-02-27 10:14 am (UTC)(link)
Getting off the street doesn't always help. [He says in a state of exasperation, as the inside of stores had been madness.]

But since any place is as good as the other, lead the way.
corven: (Avatar > With the Crow)

[personal profile] corven 2015-03-01 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
I missed something funny didn't I?

[ he hadn't been in any of the stores when it happened. Looking around he spun of all things so his coat wooshed around and he headed off in the direction his spin stopped.]

This way then.
vengeance_driven: game (►►smackdown2)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-03-01 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
[He trails after.] Not so much funny. Mr. Jellicles was hell. You wouldn't think so, but imagine attack of the ball pit when you can't stand up anyway- including the bowling balls.

[He won't give up bowling though.]
corven: (Avatar > sorrowful eyes)

[personal profile] corven 2015-03-03 02:14 pm (UTC)(link)
That doesnt sound as much fun, no. Was anyone hurt?

[ He looked to his friend a little concerned. Also thinking they should bowl together sometime soon, he's not done that in years either.]
vengeance_driven: game, car (►►looking cranky)

[personal profile] vengeance_driven 2015-03-04 03:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Not too badly, I don't think.

[It will be a while before bowling can be had again- at least, until the interior of Mr. Jellicles is fixed. And that will probably be a while.]

I would say that I hope this town doesn't go to shit, but it is probably doing better than the village at home, or Liberty City. Is just me being concerned. [That, as usual, his presence is going to curse a place.]
corven: (Avatar > Looking up)

[personal profile] corven 2015-03-07 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
Good to know.

[ Ashe looked over.] Next time you go, let me know its been ages since I went bowling.

Places have a history of going to hell on you?
