what's cooler than being cool? ice cold

Who: everyone!
What: hey wait a minute, why's it suddenly cold oh for fuck's sake Strange...
Where: the carnival + Alola
When: all of day 76!
Warnings: none, will edit if needed

the Carnival
Surprise, it's now winter.

Starting from the early hours of day 76, the Carnival is covered in snow, the temperature rapidly dropping from 'nice' to 'freezing.' Patterns of frost cover everything and icicles dangle from most buildings. Try to be careful as you're walking around, patches of the ground are frozen over and incredibly slick. Nobody be that dumbass who tries to stick their tongue to the ferris wheel, you're just going to regret it later. Enjoy the fact that almost anything that used to be a liquid is now frozen solid. All in all, it's like someone flipped a switch from summer to winter--there was absolutely no sign something like this would happen in the first place. Why not ask around to see what's up? Or, just enjoy the change of weather and pelt your friend in the face with a snowball, that's also an option. The Carnival re-enacting the plot of Frozen lasts all day, though things finally start to melt and/or magically vanish once dusk settles.

For all you vampires who've slept through most of this, the effects of winter still linger a bit after the faerie's vanished, though in slowly diminishing form. The temperature's a bit warmer and some of the liquids have started to melt, but it's still a bit uncomfortable. It's hard to clean up an entire magical wintery hellscape by yourself, okay?

Alola
Due to the way the Carnival drops people in Alola, it's entirely possible to miss the fact that something weird's going on at the Carnival. Still, some of the winter wonderland manages to seep it's way into the tropical paradise. For most people, the changes are noticeable but easily dealt with. The temperature drops to something more chilly but not downright freezing. Occasionally there are small flurries of snow, but they'll end up melting fairly quickly. Locals are downright confused, mentioning that really, it shouldn't be this cold, this weather is weirdly unseasonable.

Also, what's that weird little ice fox that keeps showing up? More and more ice Pokemon feel a little bit braver thanks to the cold temperatures and are willing to venture out into areas that ice Pokemon might not normally live in. Go train all your fire cats by having them beat up the sentient ice cream cones, everybody.

Ordinarily, Lambert would warn people off touching his things, but he's resigned himself to accepting that Mudbray will let just about anyone and everyone pet it without much protest.

"Don't let it fool you, it just looks cute to get food." He... actually doesn't know how to check if Mudbray is a girl or boy. The mane isn't actually very tussle-able, being stiff with mud as it is, but Pig seems to like it anyway, ears flicking happily at the attention.

"Oh, now that I don't believe for a second!" She laughs, still petting the little creature's head. "Speaking of food! You two must be in need of a warm meal. Should I bring something to your trailer?"

"I wasn't actually planning on sticking around for long," Lambert answers, with a little shrug. "Not really a big fan of the cold." And not just because he's not dressed for it.

"You work in the kitchen?"
sunflowerfields: (Just what you meant)

"I do! And that's why it wouldn't be a problem to get something for you." Hinawa nods. "But if you're in a hurry, you can always stop by later."

She doesn't blame anyone for wanting to avoid the sudden winter weather, especially when there's a warm summer day just a short walk away.

"Thanks. I'll keep it that in mind." While he might not intend to take her up on it now, he'll keep it in mind for later. For now, he holds the blanket a little tighter around himself, flashing her a quick smirk.

"I'm Lambert. This is Pig. And you're...?"
