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.

This guy is nothing if not a little frightening in his mannerisms, but Sora can safely say he's pretty tame in comparison to some of the things he's seen. Hell, Sora's a vampire right now, he's probably the scarier of the two, despite Strange easily being a foot taller.

Either way, he moves the umbrella to shield himself from the sun better when he comes up to him, and looks at Strange, confused.

"A... candle?" Sora repeats slowly. "Cloaked... what? I don't get it. Did you lose something?"
destiny_key: (Er...)

Sora was just about to open his mouth to ask if Strange needed help looking, when the guy asked if he wanted him to change the weather. Was... was that possible? It's not the weirdest power he's ever seen, but one would think the Ringmaster wouldn't appreciate anyone who could change something inside the carnival.

"Oh, uh, no thanks," Sora answers, grinning. "I don't wanna, like, take the sun from everyone else, you know?"
destiny_key: (Er...)

Sora stops for a minute, contemplating, and crosses his arms in thought, carefully balancing the umbrella in the crook of his elbow.

"So it's... a candle, inside an ice cube. And the ice cube is invisible."

That's what Sora got out of it anyway.
destiny_key: (fuq u)

"...Well, I mean, obviously," Sora replies to the second statement, rolling his eyes a bit. It'd be pretty dumb to not have the candle be invisible too. His teenage boy is showing.

"So, how're you gonna find it?"
destiny_key: (lol dis bitch)

[personal profile] destiny_key 2017-04-15 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
"So it's not working?" Sora asks innocently, cocking his head slightly. It's a logical conclusion, if you're still going so far as to asking pedestrians about it.
destiny_key: (Er...)

[personal profile] destiny_key 2017-04-17 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, I can help you look, if you want," Sora offers, adjusting the umbrella again. After all, that's his job. "I dunno how much help I'll be, but I can try."
destiny_key: (Er...)

"Ummmmm..." Sora starts awkwardly. "Kinda? I guess? I can use lots of magic just fine, if that's what you're asking."
destiny_key: (Oh...)

Sora mulls this over for a moment, wondering. It sounds like that thing that Terra could do, sniffing out light and darkness, but with magic. He was never really good at that sort of thing.

"Uh, I guess I'm not good at that," Sora answers sheepishly.
