Teja is in his usual chair near the fireplace, with his guitar for a change, playing 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'.
 
All vestiges of the glittersnot are gone, except perhaps a few bits of dark red twinkling in the creases of the black jeans he is wearing today.
 
His new black tee-shirt says
I SURVIVED THE GREAT MILLIWAYS
GLITTER
EPIDEMIC
in upper-case letters consisting of dark red glitter, with the word 'glitter' especially ornate. Most likely Pyrrha's work.

Jim has commandeered a couple of tables over by the Window. One of them holds the practical pieces of a plan about to be put in motion - a couple of air compressors, darts, a box with vials of clear liquid, a box of wires with circuit boards and explosives - and the other is far more neat. A computer, a street map of downtown Los Santos. Also, hot chocolate and cake, because while he might have work to do, he is also in a very happy and indulgent mood, humming to himself as he alternates between high-speed typing and building bits of what will become increasingly obvious is a bomb.

He is totally botherable. He probably won't share his cake, but he can offer lots of insight into blowing things up. Far more fun.

Helghast live on to tell the tale

 [This derives from canon events where Radec shot himself in the head and is now AU where he never did it.]

[The door closes and Radec is seemingly gone ... for now.]

Years pass, as the Helghast Col comes back as a leader for the Helghast surprisingly wearing different armor.

Radec is almost the same old Helghast then when he was before.

The door opens and a bloody knife is slipped in Radec's new armor slot before slamming the door before soldiers from the ISA come to try and kick the door down only to get nothing.

Wilford and Buster are at the bar, both having lunch. While Buster happily inhales his plate of chicken, Wilford isn't really paying too much attention to the soup and sandwich Bar decided to give him.

Things went not so well, and then they went even worse, leaving Wilford confused and trying to hide his bruised face behind an old pair of glasses with chunky plastic frames.

People around here don't react the way he expects them to. Wilford did everything he knows how to do to get someone to calm down - he threw money at the situation and let himself get hit in the face - but he still has the feeling he may have somehow missed an important detail. Which is weird, because those things usually work.

Elrond is seated at a table, fletching arrows. Necessary work and well known, the kind of task that is well suited when you want to keep your fingers busy.

And the light is better here than at home.

There is a small bowl of nuts and a glass of wine on the table.

iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze smiling (smile)
[personal profile] iprotectyou posting in [community profile] milliways_bar
The first time Baze attempted a serious whittling project, he went at it recklessly.

It only took five minutes before the knife blade slipped from the wood and opened a gash in his thumb. He stubbornly continued carving, but ended up getting blood all over the balsa wood. Another ten minutes passed before the blade skipped off a knot and sliced his index finger. More blood. More carving. At that point, the wood was slippery, so he had to stop.

He applied bandages to his fingers and waited a day before trying again. But try again he did, and learned how to properly protect himself with a Bar-provided thumb pad for his blade hand.

And he learned more than that. He learned that cuts made with the grain will peel away smoothly; cuts made against the grain will give resistance and eventually split. He learned the pull stroke, the push stroke, and straight-away rough cutting. He learned to whittle slowly, to use the strokes as a meditative practice.

Though his carved fish and eggs and demon bunnies are still crude, he thinks he can whittle in his sleep.

Today he's leaning against the bar, holding a block of balsa wood in his left hand and his pocket knife in his right, with the blade facing towards him. He braces the thumb of his right hand against the wood, and squeezes his fingers in order to draw the blade towards his thumb. His strokes are short and controlled.

He's getting wood shavings everywhere. Someone might want to tell him to clean up.

Alana's seated at the bar today, wearing a red Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress with black polkadots and a pair of black, high-heeled boots. She's got her bare legs crossed at the knee and her chin cupped in her hand.

She was reading Conquering Mountains: A Guide to Solo Female Travel, but now she's just people watching.

She might be watching you.

Ellen has been busy. Very busy. Post-apocalyptic Philadelphia is not the worst of cities- so far as she knows that distinction goes to Pittsburgh- but it's... well, it's still a post-apocalyptic city run by ice gangs and weirdoes and it's got mutant hippos in the rivers and there is a persistent legend that people don't try to cross the river because plants on the other side will eat them. And in her experience you can't deny that possibility. So she's been busy.

But the door opened to the Bar today, and she is grateful for any chance to be somewhere that does not smell like the shores of the Schuykill, and she will apologize to you if the attempts she has made at cleaning up and changing into her old blue Vault suit with the 101 across the back have not been enough to get the reek entirely gone. Just let her have her beer in the process, okay?

The comfiest of the couches near the fireplace is taken up by a human-shaped Yrael, lounging in dark green pajama-pants and soft grey t-shirt, reading the New Orleans autumn festival calendar of events.

There is no glitter - there has never been any glitter. Yrael doesn't know what you're talking about.



Were you wanting the couch? Too bad.

 [Today, the man who refuses to take off his mask with reddish eyes and complete with a gas mask is wiping the bar's counter]

Not sure who talked him into it, but he was providing today's happy hour.

The Helghast Colonel stood in the bar writing down specials for the day. 

"Welcome to my day"

Today's specials:

Fireball Whisky
Helghast Special- My own mix
Ludds Blood

The tables seemed to have some sort of theme today, they were covered with a blood red along with black line going through it.

After the glitter plague has passed, and after Emcee is no longer feeling its effects, he prepares for a little vacation of sorts.

So today, he comes downstairs, dressed in his black leather coat, and carrying an overnight bag. He only stops at the Bar to borrow a smartphone and to leave a note for Jay which reads:


Darling,

I have gone to your Berlin to stay for a few days. I know we've talked about going back, so I've decided that it was time. I'll be all right -- I hope to see Alice and Jared again; I'm sure they'll keep me company just fine.

If anyone happens to ask about me, feel free to tell them where I've gone.

See you soon,
MC



Emcee then pauses at the door just long enough to use a special key for the first time, trusting it to lead to the penthouse, and not a hail of bullets.

He turns the knob. Opens the door.

...It works.

With a breath of relief, Emcee hangs the key around his neck by its chain and slips through, closing the door behind him.

Swamp Thing enters the Bar from outside, from his conduit through the Green. And he enters rather pissed. No smoothed down walking tree man today. No, he's ten feet all, body dripping with the waters of the Amazon, a distinct smell of mold, a distinct air of power about him. Slowly, he reduces his size, alters his look to something more benign (and something less aromatic). But his face remains a scowl.

Bother him at your own risk.

Barry is dying.

Or rather, he feels like he's dying.

Actually, he feels like he'd rather be dead than whatever this is.

After a week of coming and going in Milliways and encountering friends who were sick and all the people who were down with it while he felt fine, Barry had figured he was safe.

But, as it turns out, his metahuman metabolism only managed to combat the bug long enough to lull Barry into a false sense of security, then quit the fight abruptly. Now, Barry is that guy, the one who never gets sick, but when he does get sick he gets it the worst of all.

On a couch near the fireplace, in a nest made up of ALL the blankets and wrapped up to his head, Barry suffers. He had every intention of quarantining himself in a room upstairs, but the trek was too much. So now he's huddled on the couch with his knees tucked up to his chest and just the top of his head sticking out of the blankets, with rats bringing him soup and more tissues to replace those covered in glittering day-glo orange snot overfilling a nearby small trash can.

His tablet is propped on a nearby coffee table, and Barry is watching old episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Don't judge him, just pity him and his miserable state.
