save your eyes for someone brighter than i will ever be
LongNight was over and now the work truly began – not that there was nearly as much destruction and messes as the Flood could recall of LongNights past in the Grounds, but that doesn’t mean that those within his region had kept inside for the majority of the week. So, with a letter sent out to see if Flora wished to help, and the day spread through word of mouth, Sunjata’s prepared and ready amongst the remnants of the main road that starts to bisect Meadowreach.

There’s the fork in the road of where it would lead to the House of Midnight and the rest of the houses in the area that have slowly been building over the past few seasons, and he can be found in a sleeveless shirt despite the cold Flowerbirth morning, leaning against a mostly empty cart filled with supplies such as shovels and rakes, bags and dustpans to clean up with, and whatever else they needed to clean the mess left behind.



PQ for LongNight clean up!!

we show off our different scarlet letters
"Wowwwwwwwwww...ya'll party almost as hard as we do." Flora muses with a laugh as she kicks aside a discarded bottle that she'd no doubt end up picking up once things got started. "Bet there's not as many bras or underwear, though." She adds, flashing Sunjata a crooked smile. If there was an award for rowdiest LongNight, now that the Grounds weren't constantly full of monsters, Flora thought that Torchline probably safely had the win, all the more so because of their climate.

Shading her eyes with one hand, Flora moves to stand on a little rise so that she could gaze down the pathway that led to the slowly forming group of houses far below in the meadow. "Is that where you're going to build the town?" She wonders conversationally, having heard the Flood mention the next expansion for King's End a time or two.

Sah

Sah had finished up collecting void dandelions with Luka and after packaging them up for transport and sending them back with his son, he'd continued his path across King's End. He needed to stop by Frey's shrine before he left to return to Halo. The Abandoned hasn't seen it since the completion and he's curious to see how it was faring.

Along the way to the shrine, he discovered his capacity to teleport. Testing it, he'd hopped along the region to get a handle on how this new magic worked. When he lands near the edge of Meadowreach with a flash of lightning, he spots a pair of people in the distance. Covering the sun with a hand, he recognizes them as Sunjata and Flora. He'd meant to speak with Frey's Demi-god at some point, given that they were extended family, and he was fairly sure that the man had no idea. Flora was too, and he hardly knew the woman.

Decision made, he walked over and saw that they were setting up to clean. "Morning. Do you two need another set of hands?"

As Flora arrives, Sunjata’s laugh brightens up an already brightening day, inclining his head in agreement. “Yeah, yeah. I remember the Torchline LongNights.” He hums in his accented tone, rolling his eyes – albeit fondly, because those LongNights were a must after the traumatizing nightmares of the Grounds. “Wait til you get closer to the House of Midnight, you’ll probably think it’s just like home.” Teasing her gently, he follows her gaze down the path to a seemingly empty spot, nodding. “Yep. Figured a more central spot away and close enough to the Refuge might be a decent start for some people.” Then those people could do whatever they wanted to do elsewhere with the houses, but at least there’d be a space available if people didn’t feel as though they wanted to go frontiering.

Another face arrives, though, and Sunjata’s steel gaze drifts over toward Sah with a small smile of greeting – a part of his protective predatory shifts (it’s the dragon. It’s always the fucking dragon) regards his intentions, because the last time he’d seen Sah had been during the spar that had quite literally killed his niece, even if Ronin had brought her back to life.

Nodding after a moment of contemplation and internal bristling, the Flood gestures to the cart. “Hope you don’t mind getting your hands dirty.” Sunjata starts off, before he begins to guide them down the more worn path toward the House of Midnight. “We’re cleaning up the mess left behind.” He informs Sah, belatedly, as if realizing he likely didn’t know. “Let’s get started raking this shit up into piles and dumping it into the cart.” He gestures to the litter on each side of the path – broken bottles, random papers strewn about and wet because of melting snow, pieces of broken slats of wood, a single shoe somehow ending up here that looks to have been lost in the snowstorms just last season.



Round one! Start cleaning up the debris/litter!

Sah

Only after he locked eyes with the man did his guilt resurface. Initially, he'd shoved it down to remain functional and not drown in its dark waters. Time and then Safrin's approval had soothed the worst of it. Yet even that didn't completely erase the guilt he felt. Seeing Sunjata only made him further regret the emotional trauma that he had unintentionally inflicted on Melita and those who love her. He was grateful that the man was giving him a chance at all. Sah returns the smile with a small one of his own, dipping his head in respect. The Wild Thunder might not be a Hybrid or Attuned, but he was a hunter at heart. He could sense the predator watching him from behind human eyes.

After being given an explanation, Sah couldn't' stop the chuckle that escaped him, "Seems that LongNight isn't all that different, no matter the region. I don't mind." Taking a rake, he got to work on the litter around them. He did his best to be efficient and focused on one section at a time before moving on.

"You'd think will all the indoor activities, not to mention all the snow, that they wouldn't bother." Flora huffs, rolling her eyes affectionately before shrugging. People were assholes everywhere you went, the yearly amount of cleanup post-LongNight showed that clearly enough.

"Awww. Well let me know when you start, I'm happy to lend a hand." Or bring a crate of booze and several workers from Torchline to do the majority of the heavy lifting for her.

As Sah arrived, Flora very slyly turned her back to him for a moment so that she could pull an exaggerated face of annoyance in Sunjata's direction, before wiping her expression totally clean as she turned back toward the WildThunder. "You gonna murder us if we don't?" She laughed brightly, and while there was certainly poison in her words her smile was as wide as ever. Whatever Sah might have been to her mother, he'd killed her cousin/friend and had then rudely interrupted a family meeting between the Valkyrie, Flood, and herself on the beach. First impressions being what they were, she kinda thought the abandoned was a bit of a jackass.

Whatever.

Grabbing a rake, Flora began to drag it lightly over the top layer of grass, not because she was being lazy, but because she wanted to collect all the lighter bits of trash and debris in one fell swoop.

Snorting, Sunjata nods his agreement with that crooked grin back toward Flora – because honestly? Each and every LongNight he’d tried his damndest to stay indoors. This year hadn’t been all that much different – one or two excursions into the cold and snow, but for the most part? The Flood was happily content sipping his coffee or whiskey (or both) inside by the fire. “Will do.” He hums with that brighter smile of gratitude, before it fades into getting down to business.

Of course it doesn’t fade completely when it comes to the exaggerated face from the Queen of Torchline for his eyes only, and Sunjata has to actually fight himself from snorting at the comment, even as he grabs a shovel to start shoveling the debris into the cart. “Was pretty different in the Grounds all those years ago.” Comes his quieter comment, punctuated by the harsh squish of metal against dirt from the shovel as he picks up more debris along the road and dumps it into the cart with a thunk! of a sound and glass breaking, as if recalling that time he’d nearly lost his mind and gotten swept away by a LongNight monster in the dead of night.

Flora’s attention to the lighter trash and debris makes it quick and easy work for her to load into the cart (don’t worry Flora, Sunjata’s got the shovel ready to help hoist it up the second she’s ready), and for Sah it’s much of the same until this section of the road is all cleared. “Onto the next.” Comes his accented rumble, loading up the cart with his shovel to free his hands enough to push the cart easier down the road.

This section has what appears to be a handcart that got loose and broken in the snow, promptly snowed over to where the contents had vanished. Until now, where the melting snow has revealed it. A broken wheel sticks up and jars of what look to be candles, jars full of what look like oil, and a crate that’s spread its contents across the stretch of road. A crate, that by the looks of it, has a few gemstones strewn about the candelabras and metal oil lamps.



Round two!

Pick between picking up the candles, the jars, or the crate!

Sah

Sah sighed deeply at Flora's barbed words, "No." It was clear that she was angry at him, understandably so. But he didn't want to make things any worse by rising to her bait to try to defend himself. Sunjata's comment reminded him of something that Deimos had mentioned long ago and there's not much else that the Abandoned can do but nod. He'd only ever faced one LongNight monster, and that had apparently been the very last of them. He can't imagine what it was like when they numbered in the dozens.

Pushing his introspection to the side, Sah focused on the next tasks. The jars of oil would hopefully be easy to spot in the melting snow, so the Abandoned set his sights on them. Using water magic to move the snow out of the way, he searched for any hidden ones. When he'd collected an armful, he set them to the side before continuing his search.

Vaguely rolling her eyes, annoyed at Sah's MaTuRiTy, Flora turned to Sunjata instead. "Yeah, Ronin has told me a bit about what it was like. Actual fucking monsters trying to get in? Speaking with the voices of people they'd already killed to trick you? Fuck." Looking at the trash piled up around them on the new grass, Flora thought maybe a bit of litter picking wasn't the sort of thing she should be complaining about given the possible alternatives. She would, though.

Saunting up the road while making small talk with Sunjata about the House of Midnight, and, in more hushed tones, about Koa and Jack—she still didn't know Sohali was back, of course—Flora stopped at the sight of the overturned handcart. "Huh. You'd have thought someone would have come back for this." Still, not her region, not her people, not her problem.

Leaning down the queen begins to collect the various pillar candles that she can see, tossing them over her shoulder into Sunjata's cart with a satisfying thunk.



Flora does candles!

The quiet “no” from Sah doesn’t receive attention from the Flood, not as he focuses on shoveling up the debris and idle conversation. Instead, focusing briefly on the Grounds comment, Sunjata’s nose wrinkles as he nods, plunking a pile of trash into the cart. “I got lured out, once. Was fuckin’ terrible.” A shiver runs through his broad shoulders and he huffs a little sound.

Drifting deeper down the pathway to find a multitude of things from a spilled over crate and cart, Sunjata’s quite content with the quiet talk of Koa and Jack and everything else in regards to what made up small talk between not only two leaders but ones who were also essentially family these days.

As Flora picks up the candles and Sah works on picking up the jars, Sunjata steps over toward the crate and starts plucking pieces of the wet wood up into his arms, looping the broken wheel around one of his arms through two of its spokes. “Maybe they were worried about seeing that luxere sled that everyone was apparently trying to chase?” Sunjata suggests – because he’d seen the aftermath. He’d also seen the additional result of Koa without any shoes. “Koa lost his shoes.” He tacks on, flashing an amused grin to Flora, wandering between the cart and the pieces of the crate to drop the debris.

Flora’s candle adventure goes decently well, though it appears one of the candles is stuck deep in the mud from the still cold earth of the snowmelt, and it might take a bit of extra work (or help) to get the candle unstuck from where it’s currently protruding.

Sah’s attempts also have him collecting a multitude of jars, the water magic maneuvering the melting snow away to reveal more jars. One of them, he collects, is already broken and will require some extra work to remove the bits and pieces of broken glass.



Round three!

Flora’s got a stuck candle, Sah’s got a broken jar, and Sunjata’s still got more of the cart to clean up! Keep on keepin’ on!

Sah

Flora thankfully dropped the topic when he didn't respond in the way she wished. It made it easier to work when he didn't have to contribute to the conversation and could just listen quietly. When he found the broken jar, his attention was pulled away, and the words turned to a background murmur.

He eyed the shards on the ground for a moment, before deciding to use his magic. First, he quickly crafted a larger jar to put the pieces within. As he did so, he walked around the area so that the light would shift and catch any fragments that he missed.

Piece by piece, he lifted the sharp edges and safely tucked them away into his jar. Hopefully, the Abandoned would be able to find them all.

Sah keeps working. He makes a larger jar with creation magic and then uses telekinesis to safely put the broken glass inside it.

Grimacing theatrically to hear that Sunjata had spent any part of the OG LongNight outside, Flora feigned a shiver. "That sounds terrible." She murmurs and though it's probably the biggest understatement she could possibly make, what else was there to say? "Sometimes I find myself like 2% jealous of when everyone used to be all together in the same place, and then I remember that shit like that used to happen." The Doubletake chuckles, before snorting and nodding. "Oh yeah, I remember that." Laughing, Flora gives her head an amused shake.

Ahh, so much fuckery in the world.

"Hey, I've been meaning to ask you, do you want to trade some of your healing unicorn stuff to Torchline this season? We could really use some healing items stashed around. In return we can give you some of our lucky shells?"

Debating whether or not to bother Sah some more by asking what the fuck he was doing so far from Halo especially if he wasn't going to say a goddamn word, Flora found herself nearly bested by a candle. Staring down at it before giving it a good kick, the Doubletake succeeded only in snapping it in half, leaving the stuck half still buried in the frozen earth. "Well, fuck you too." She hummed cheerfully, before pulling out one of her daggers and stabbing at the hardened earth to free the candle.

As Sah works to collect the jars, the broken one does have plenty of shards strewn about, glittering in the movement the Abandoned provides. The larger jar makes it easy to collect all the bits and pieces collected along the way, to the point that where the ground looks clear the jar is full a little over halfway. Apparently there was more than one broken glass jar amongst the lot of them. The rest of the jars are collected and deposited in the cart without any issue, even if some of them contain liquids that certainly look like they should not have been left outside to the elements this long.

As Sunjata works to collect the rest of the wood pieces of the cart, he’s only met with a splinter or two for his trouble, and he tilts his head toward Flora when she speaks, snorting at the response as he dumps the last of his cart and wheel pieces into the handcart, before he starts to pluck the splinters from his hand. “Yeah, it had plenty of pros and cons.” He admits, already knowing that the bad outweighed the good when it came to having so many people so close together. However, at Flora’s follow-up question with the unicorn shavings, the Flood perks up a little – steel gaze looking over at her curiously. It had been the first collection he’d done, but when it came to luck and healing, well, he certainly thinks that’s an option worth having. “Yeah, sure. We can flesh that out after this is over if you want?” He asks, watching as the candle begins to best her. He busies himself with picking up a few more random pieces of debris poking out of the mud.

With the half frozen candle stuck in the mud, the thought of breaking up the ground around it to pull it out makes it relatively quick work – the candle loosening enough to the point that she can pluck it free from the earth to dunk it back into the cart with the rest of them. And it’s about that time that this section of the road is done. “Last stretch.” He announces to them all, pushing the cart further down to where the House of Midnight can be seen, and this time the items get a bit more Torchline-y with their debris.



Round four!!

Here’s where the party really happened, with debris of torches, clothes (intimates, too??), broken and half full bottles of liquor, etc! Clean up the last stretch and we’re done :3

"Sounds good to meeeeeeeeee." The queen trills, flashing Sunjata a wide smile before tottering off to stab at the ground. Honestly, had it been for anyone else Flora would absolutely have just left the candle; King's End was huge, who cared about one little bit of wax lodged in the ground? But Sunjata had always been there for her when she'd needed him, all the moreso as of late, so if he wanted the stupid road cleared, that's what he'd get.

"Oh ho." As the debris gets decidedly more interesting, the Doubletake becomes significantly more selective in her efforts. Not that she'd ever want to go shopping curbside, Flora nevertheless took every opportunity to bring each unmentionable item to Sunjata's attention, mostly by asking if he thought it was his and if he'd lost it.

"Hey, check it out!" Holding up some of the bottles which hadn't yet broken, Flora pulled the lid off of one and gave it an experimental sniff before theatrically recoiling. "Fuck. No wonder they crashed their cart, this stuff is poison!"



Flora goes for the delicates and booze ;)
