By the time you looked, it was too late. The warning signs were all there, but did you heed them? Did you do anything more that start, make idle jokes, draw the blankets around you tighter as you stoked the flames?

No you didn't.

And now all shall suffer the consequences. We were let in, and unlike years past, we waited. We were content to bide our time, until now. Until the darkness outside was so resplendent that there would be no escape.

It is time for all to burn.



It takes very little for the blaze to start. With snow moss lining nearly everything, the dry boards of the guild are gift-wrapped for the fire. Shadowy hands knock over candles in several of the back rooms, so that the flames might have time to grow and saturate before notice is taken. But there are other hands at work. Doors are locked and hallways barricaded. Attempts to put out the blaze border on the impossible.    

Stay and be killed by the light. Leave and risk the darkness.



The MHG is on FIRE. You may try to 1. Put the fire out, 2. Leave and try to sing to the luxere to keep them around while you make your escape! No time limit, but the building won't stay on fire forever. Events will be posted as they happen.

Whatever you do, please post a summary at the bottom!

sometimes love is a feather, sometimes a cannon ball

"FIRE."

The smell of smoke as it burned the old and dusty boards further within the guild was a terrifying scent. Immediately, Remi's first thought was of Aoife . Given all the noise within the guild the girl had mostly been sleeping in the arms of friends as they mulled about; there was no point trying to get her to sleep in her own room. Not with so much constantly going on. The only downside of that right now, was that Remi had absolutely no idea where she was.

'RONIN." He bellowed loudly, racing down the stairs into the greathall, eyes wide searching desperately for his daughter.



Remi looks for Aoife!

Samuel
We can leave life for tomorrow
Or grieve all that we thought we’d do
Sam ran downstairs at the sound of crackling flames and screams, unsure what had happened but knowing whatever it was, it sparked panic in his chest. Actually seeing it though, he pushed his hands up into his hair, staring at the flames licking around the guild and Remi running running past, likely searching for Aoife.

Immediately in his heart he knew this was his fault. Marked, they had said, and this was what they had meant. He'd brought this on the guild and...and...maybe there was a way to fix  it....

Rexanna had told him not to make himself a sacrificial lamb, and perhaps he could have agreed for one person. But for this many? For Remi and Ronin? He had seen the panic in the Alchemist's eyes. No, he had started this and besides, he hardly deserved to live anyway. Sam began to take slow measured steps toward the fire, inching towards a death he felt he was obligated to take.

Sam takes some steps towards the fire. (but is still far enough away to not be catching alight)

LILY
She’s sleeping. Without the sun to guide her, Lily has fallen into a weird ‘sleep whenever’ sort of phase, so it isn’t until people begin screaming that the singer wakes. Confused, sleep-bedraggled, she immediately takes a deep breath and can smell smoke. It’s rough on her throat. Her eyes widen in realization and she grabs her boots and big sweaters, throws them on, and then grabs her lap harp and music machine. She thinks of nothing other than getting out and saving herself.

Laden down, Lily is slower than usual, but she manages to make her way down the stairs to the doors, where she thinks of nothing more than getting out.

The fire is certain death. And the darkness is likely death. But she’ll take likely over certain any day.

The luxere are the first thing she sees when she opens the door and the woman almost falls into the group as she stumbles out with a slight coughing fit. But her instruments are safe. And she is still alive. For the next few breaths, she is alive.

--------------------------
Lily saves her instruments and goes outside to find the luxere - but isn't singing or playing yet.

Good job staring at the fire Samuel, it's super effective (it absolutely isn't).

The luxere have smelled the smoke, the entirety of the herd seems nervous. However given Lily's musicality in the past, at the sight of her they seem to paused, looking to her for guidance.

Nate
There's a shadow just behind me
Shrouding every step I take
Making every promise empty
Pointing every finger at me

Nate Heard- the screams, same as Sam had, though his reaction was a far sight slower than the ascendeds was. He lost sight of the other man for a moment as he stepped into the guildhall proper, the sight of the flames in what he’d assumed to be a safe place affecting Nate more than what he’d expected. If he wasn’t out of his depth before (and he had been) then he was drowning right now.

Catching sight of Sam again spurred him out of his paralysis though. The ginger was the one person moving slowly towards the danger. ”Sam!” Nate ran forwards, grabbing the other man around the waist and tugging him back. ”We have to get out, come on!” There wasn’t time to put much thought to the others actions, just enough to start dragging him to the door.



Nate grabs Sam and pulls him towards the exit

Jigano had returned to the room with the dead, keeping his watch over them even if he could do nothing else. Were their souls safe within the lantern, or had they been stolen from their bodies before he had arrived? He didn't know, could do nothing but pray and hold to faith in the strength of Ludo's song and Ludo's lantern, where so much else had failed.

The smell of smoke filtered in to his vulpine nose first and he bolted up, fur standing on end even as Remi's voice called "Fire!" in the endless night.

No No No No No!

He leapt to his feet - two, not four, shifting as he rose to snatch up his lantern and clip it to his belt. Rexanna was blind, she and Sam were both incredibly flammable, and they needed to buy time for everyone to get out if they couldn't save the building.

He knew where the washrooms were, where the kitchen was, and he began to run through the ground floor of the structure, turning on every water tap he could find.



Jigano runs through the first floor turning on water taps in the bathrooms and kitchen to try and soak the wood and put out the fire!

black hearts, the wicked never rest. i curse the day i let you in
so tell me dear,
It can get worse, absolutely. But with everything else going on? She’s not sure she wants to find out. The girl can hear the screams, smell the smoke, and she’s in motion. Auni has raced outside to help comfort his bigger breathren, hoping to keep them nearby at Kiada’s order — as for Kiada? She finds a bucket on her way out the door, uncertain where to get some water without diving straight for the flames. “Get the children out, comfort the Luxere!” She falls out to anyone trying to evacuate, anyone who’s listening.

And so she scoops up a bunch of snow in the bucket, hauling it up into the Guildhall to toss over the flames, an effort to start putting it out.



Auni tries to calm the Luxere and Kiada grabs a bucket, fills it with snow, and runs inside to toss it on the fire.
can your heart still break?
if it's already stopped breathing?

Samuel is stronger than Nate, so unless the ascended cooperates, he won't be moved.

Jigano 's plan is too little, too late. Fire has engulfed the back 35% of the guildhall and is beginning to climb up to the second floor.

Auni's presence indeed helps settle the herd, though as a whole they remain nervous.

As Kiada throws a bucket of snow on the flames, it is like pissing on a forest fire.

LILY
Time seems to stop for a moment as Lily stares at the luxere, and they seem to stare back. It’s like her brain is off - in survival mode - which is not the same as singing mode. The uneasiness in the herd makes them begin to shift away. This isn’t enough to shake Lily from her fight-or-flight mode, but her hands in the snow, the cold on her knees, soaking through her clothes and burning her palms - that does.

“Oh please, please she whispers to them, her fingers fumbling with the strings of her harp - discordant notes and chords come out for a few moments until Lily realizes she can’t sit in the snow and play. She can’t play right now, period. So she stands and begins to sing - the first thing that comes to her mind and the last thing she sang for an audience.

“Go out and tell her story
Let it echo far and wide
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

How fearless was her battle
How she gave her very life
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

And say to those who loved her,
to the Fae of Sidhe and Stone
To the creatures of the Wildwood,
All who call the forest Home…”


Her voice trembles through the first couple of verses as she tries to focus on the luxere in front of her and not everything that's going on behind - the flames, the smoke, the yelling and everything else. Oh, why won't they come out?
don't know if you love me or you want me dead
the way you're looking through my eyes
Don't know if I'm gonna make it out alive

The luxere crowd around Lily. A few nudge her with their noses, careful not to prod her with their antlers, as they nervously shuffle. We should not be here their wide-eyes seem to say, but for now, they remain.

Samuel
We can leave life for tomorrow
Or grieve all that we thought we’d do
The arm around his waist shocked Sam out of his suicidal stupor. He flinched but let Nate take him, his own feet eventually starting to work too as they went to the door, though he did glance back to look at the fire, reached out his one-fingered hand as if to try and apologise to it for not letting it consume him.

Sam runs with Nate to the door.

Not enough, never enough and Jigano felt the heat swirling around him as Isuma fluttered to his shoulder, peeping cries of fear as the flames turned the world red and smoke began to fill the air.

" Rexanna !" he called, making his way through the halls and rooms to where he had last seen his blinded friend. No matter what had passed between them he couldn't leave her to die, even if her abilities let her control the flames to some degree. When he found her he reached out to her, if she allowed it, wrapping a careful arm around her broken ribs to guide her out and away from the deadly inferno that was picking up the pace behind them.



Jigano goes to find Rex and tries to help her escape outside!
