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?

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.

Jimmy nods. "A quick peek into the smokehouse, then. That's where we ended up housing them... I should probably check on them anyway. Give them an extra few scoops of wood chips." Probably while Strange is searching the kitchen. "But first is getting everyone fed."

Quick is definitely best, and Jimmy starts by giving Pea some cold chicken on a paper plate. It may not be the best in the long term (his book has a recommended recipe for the best food for rock types, Jimmy just hasn't had a chance to make any yet,) and muffins and coffee for himself and Strange.

"Eat up, I'll get the bowl and the brush, and then we'll be off again."
empty_vessel: Not Sure If Want. (Suspicious)

At least Strange is eating something. Jimmy will take it, even if it's just half a muffin. Jimmy himself will opt for the cold coffee and the muffin. After a sip and a grimace at how chilled it is (cold enough to be kind of gross, but not cold enough for an iced coffee.) Maybe Strange had a point.

"This candle? What's it look like? Anything unusual about it? And.... what did you call up that did this?" He turns back to face Strange as he asks. "And why?" You don't call up something like this without a reason.

Jimmy nods slowly, a small frown on his face. He's not buying it, but mostly because Strange doesn't strike him as someone that would be that reckless with something he took so seriously.

"That... Why would you summon another faerie here?" Strange looking for ways to dance around or avoid answering completely is not a good sign."No, really, Strange. Why?"
empty_vessel: This Isn't A Good Idea. (Wait)

Any irritation Jimmy might have felt at the plummeting cold snap melts as he hears why. It's not that Jimmy can relate. Jimmy is in that exact same position. Just playing out on a much longer scale.

"I'm... I'm so sorry. Is there anything I can do to help?" The silver lining of Mrs. Strange not being dead was a lovely accent for this massive pile of crap. Not dead, sure. But God only knows where she was. "Besides helping you find the candle, I mean."
