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.

A very, very good likelihood. Childermass is already expecting it, which is why steps up to the edge of the hole and reaches down to grab at one of Strange's arms, at least trying to delay him for a moment. In the face of Strange's laughter and grinning, he's as sober as ever.

"Can't you just fetch it out with magic? Like you did the water?" Or it could be he was controlling the water and not just levitating it with something else. What a bother. "Or at the very least, let us destroy it from up here."

Because he is definitely going to fall down and then Childermass will have to go in after him and then they'll both be stuck in a hole.

That the lake remains frozen is a relief. Childermass hadn't expected so much ice to vanish immediately, but the possibility had crossed his mind and having to swim back to shore from the middle of the lake, not a fun idea. He looks down the hole at the candle, a thin tendril of smoke still rising from the wick.

"Because it's only ice and snow," he offers his own two cents. "Creating it all needed the faerie's magic, but after that, it's not so unnatural. I'm sure given enough time, it would melt away on its own."

That said, how about they don't tempt fate and hang out here much longer? Especially since Strange has already mentioned wanting the candle back. You know, the candle down there in the ice hole with few to no handholds down. It's that which spurs him to act quicker than the other magician, trying to cut him getting stuck down there off at the head. He turns to look back at Strange.

"But it'll go faster with you fixing your mess, so let's get back to shore, shall we?"

"Come on, then," Childermass tells the dog, gesturing for him to follow when he turns to go back across the lake. The Growlithe, of course, hops up to his feet to follow, having an easier time of crossing the ice on four legs over two once more. He keeps pace with the magicians this time, however, so there is that.

It's another long endeavor to get back to shore, even Childermass taking his time and walking carefully across the ice to avoid slipping and falling. The comment about the candle does get a, surprisingly enough, a faintly amused smirk out of the typically dour man.

"You can always get another candle, Mr. Strange. I'm sure the carnival has boxes of the very same kind in storage somewhere."

Because where else would he have gotten the first one? It can't possibly be unique. It's just wax.
