a character in “The Whimsical Residence for Wayward Children”, as played by Alle9009

Description

Image

name:
Devon and Gabriel Zarzuela

Age:
17 years old

Gender:
male

Personality:
They're both caring, nice people. They often do everything together, and more often than not they finish each other's sentences and know what the other is either saying or thinking with nothing more than a look. They know each other well. However, despite the similarities they are a bit different.

Gab is someone cheerful, who likes to smile. He's generally a warm, cheerful presence, like a playful gust of wind. However he's also got a very violent side that pops up during stressful times or when he's mad, and more often than not can seem quite unhinged when he's carried away. He's also ridiculously optimistic, and likes to play dumb to troll others.

Dev, however, is less likely to go on a rampage. Although he's often chirpy and cheerful like his brother, Dev is someone who's more like a calm, warming breeze in the summer - he's the calm to his brother's frenzy, the down to earth to his brother's head in the clouds. He's calm and often very objective, and less likely to be mean like Gab. He is, however, capable of going completely bonkers like his brother.

Wayward or whimsical ability:
Wayward - Dev has the ability to heal, while Gab has the ability to cause injuries. Both require touch, or a certain radius so close that it might as well be considered touch anyway.

Appearance:
They both look very alike, standing tall at 170cm and weighing 61kg. Both have green hair and yellow eyes, and have identical faces and body type. However, Dev keeps his hair parted to the right and keeps his hair tied in a short ponytail, while Gab keeps his hair untied and parted to the left. They both like comfortable but stylish clothes, like dress shirts, vests and stylish coats.

Noticeable features: Gab tends to wear a hat, Dev tends to wear spectacles - although they are there purely aesthetically. Sometimes they swap looks just for fun and see if the others can spot who they are.

Likes: Being together, construction, games

Dislikes: Being apart, forced to do something, losing

History:
They were born to parents who decided to utilise their abilities for money. Dev was forced to work as an underground doctor of sorts while Gab was sent to make injuries happen and scam customers to see them. This lasted until they got caught. Gab nearly got lynched and Dev got kidnapped, their parents died while they were made to work in the gangs for a while, and then they managed to escape and went on the run until they managed to get out. They were rescued by Cosmos, and in return for their stay they worked as doctors of sorts, all at the age of 14.

So begins...

Dev and Gab Zarzuela's Story

Faye Chalmers

Faye sat quietly towards the back of the room as Cosmo told his story in the main room by the fire. The children gathered there had been listening intently. Faye had leant her head on her hands enjoying the tale. She loved stories of all kinds, she loved to read new tales in the many books that resided in this house. She especially adored the romance novels.
Her heart thumped for a moment as she thought of the stories she had read, all the main characters had a close companion, a lover, a mother, a father even a friend.

She sighed. She was too nervous to make any friends. Her books were her friends.

She brightened as Cosmo directed his attention towards Cecil. Sitting up a little bit Faye looked towards the boy as he sat comfortable with a younger girl on his lap. Lucy.

All this talk of witches made her a little uneasy.

She watched quietly as Cecil began to gather companions to his detective regime, Sapphire and Willow stood to follow. Seeing Sapphire's red cheeks made her smile. She wondered if she turned as red as that when embarrassed. It seemed like fun

Listening to the chatter around her Faye heard a slight tapping in the distance. It sounded almost like a knock at the door? Looking back at the group before her no one else seemed to have noticed it...

Oh no, I'm going to have to talk.

She gulped at the thought.

"Um.." she raised her hand to grab someone's attention. However as her hand lifted into the air it struck a nearby pot that had been sitting on a side cabinet. Before she could react it crashed with a loud shatter causing her to flinch and suddenly freeze her eyes quickly looking towards the floor.

Oh god are they looking at me? she wondered not daring to look up her hand still in the air afraid to move it back.

With another gulp she pulled her arm down and spoke "I - I think there's someone at the door." She said quietly tugging at the sleeves of her jumper embarrassed by her own clumsiness. A small shard had cut her hand as she pulled her jumper over it. She didn't want any more attention. It didn't hurt very much, not compared to... she pushed her memories away not wanting to remember.

Cecil, contrary to the notion the other members expected of him (that is, to throw Willow off of his arm), makes no movement to do so. He smirks slightly, but other than that, there's not much of an indication of a reaction. In truth, he does like Willow a great deal. For one thing, she acts so childish that she reminds him of a child, and he certainly has a sweet spot for those. For another, she turns into a cat, and he absolutely loves those.

Lucy, on the other hand, had ditched Cecil's side at the moment in search of someone better to spend her time with. She comes across Rhys, who she had noticed had almost started crying, and she ducks down slightly to be in his line of sight as he's looking down for his game. "Hey, what's wrong? You look really sad! What's wrong, what's wrong?"

When Sapphire steps over to the two of them, Cecil smiles, uttering some things along the lines of 'that's a good boy!' and 'you'll do just fine' before opening his mouth again to ask again if any others were willing to join him. It's then that Faye makes the comment about someone being there, and he looks toward her. The pot that crashes doesn't faze him in the slightest—rather, as soon as she opened her mouth, he expected something like this to happen. He looks down at the shattered pot briefly before his green-eyed gaze rests back on Faye, as some of the other residents were also doing.

"Someone? At the door? You think it could be a witch?" He shakes his head. "No. Unless a witch were pretending to be a wayward child—which I doubt they'd try to do in the first place—they would've tried to break in through the windows. That one'd be the easiest one to break through." He points towards the kitchen, and since that one seems to be the biggest, he'd be correct. He lowers his arm a bit to set Willow on her feet and he carefully untangles her arms from his. After about a half a minute of looking at the door, he says:

"Must be a wayward kid. And I don't think you talking was just a coincidence, either." The brunet casts a sideways glance at Faye, giving her a smile. "While your voice is lovely, you don't do that much, do you? Talk, I mean." His babbling probably doesn't make much sense, but he's using his ability. Assessing the situation. He tilts his head at the door. "Whimsical, maybe?"

S-S-So cold...

In the woods, a boy staggered on a twig as he headed towards a light in the faraway distance.

He was fifteen years old, but years of malnutrition had taken its toll on his scrawny body, causing the teen to seem younger than he actually was with little body fat to help insulate his body against the cold, and the red flush on his cheeks indicated fever. He was underdressed for the weather, snowflakes landing on a thin tattered jacket and grimy pants a couple of sizes smaller than him. Cold seeped into him like knives every time a snowflake dropped onto him, stabbing him with icicles that sank a little deeper with every move. Shivering uncontrollably, the brown haired teen had stuffed his hands under his armpits in an attempt to stop frostbite, but it was a futile attempt.

He couldn't feel his fingers anymore, was what he was saying. And his toes and come to think of it, everything else.

It was like his body was slowly turning into an icecream cone - he even had a frosty white topping of snow on his head from the hours of walking outside that mixed with his hair and made it look like he had an extreme case of dandruff. The boy could still feel cold, but it was a distant feeling, as if his internal core of heat was slowly starting to freeze over. Hot and cold at the same time. Get a g-g-grip, self. The boy told himself, gritting his teeth to keep it from chattering. He looked dazedly in front of him, squinting to make sense of things in the snow and dark. Jaste Sotelo will not give in to a stupid fever -

He stepped on a branch, slipped and fell to the ground, landing in a pile of snow.

For a moment, Jaz didn't move. That moment stretched out to a minute, which stretched out to ten. Then, gritting his teeth, Jaz weakly shook his head and made to pull himself up. His arms buckled at his first attempt, but he made it to his knees on his second attempt out of pure willpower even if his arms trembled from the effort. Dazed, covered in snow from the snowmound that he couldn't be bothered to brush off, Jaz staggered to his feet like a zombie rising from the grave, shaking so hard it was a surprise that his bones hadn't vibrated apart.

With dazed, fever-glassed eyes, jaz checked the light in front of him, forcing himself to stay up with sheer willpower and thankful that the cold and snow had made the pain in his body die down to a dull ache and covered the (not scary just the wind) whispering sounds he'd been hearing since he'd entered the forest. Sleeping in the snow meant death. Jaz did not want to die. It's... closer than it was before. A lot closer. Or this is a fever dream brought on by the cold, yay.

Hallucination or not, heading to the light was the highest chance for survival. Hunching in on himself to preserve what little body heat he had, Jaz took a step forward -

And let out a hoarse shriek of surprise as his foot landed on nothing but thin air, momentum pushing him over into nothingness.

Anyone with rational thought and the ability to see could have avoided the small incline, since the light snowfall did little to block out the slope, but as Jaz currently had the sight of a halfblinded elderly cyclops thanks to having a high fever - and also because he didn't think to check the ground before taking that step forward - Jaz slipped down the slope and sprawled towards the ground, hands outstretched to stop his fall.

Naturally that was the moment Jaz's arms decided to give out on him. With nothing to stop his momentum, Jaz's head hit the ground with a harsh thud. That normally wouldn't knock him out cold, but since Jaz currently had the temperature of 38.4 degrees Celsius and the strength of a newborn kitten...

I hate the snow. Was the only thing Jaz thought before blacking out.

-----------------------------------------------------

"Dennis? Where are you going?"

The blonde boy in question stiffened like a statue at the voice, one hand almost touching the door. Devon and Gabriel had just walked down the stairs for a cup of hot chocolate, and they were just in time to notice Dennis about to open the door that lead to the outside. They leaned against the stairs, Dev raising an eyebrow and Gab smiling brightly at Dennis.

The boy turned around, giving off a slightly sheepish air. He gestured at the door and opened it, revealing the snowy front yard and beyond it, the snowy forest. It was still snowing, frozen flakes landing lightly on the ground and forming mounds of snow. It was a bit hard to see thanks to the darkness, but that just made the place look more picturesque.

"Oh, so you wanted to see the snow?" Devon asked, enlightenment forming on his face. "Or go out to play in the snow," Gabriel added, noting that Dennis had his winter clothes on. Dennis gave a small nod of confirmation, and Dev and Gab both exchanged a look with each other before facing Dennis again.

"Why?" They asked the same time.

Dennis opened his mouth, then closed it. He looked around helplessly, as if unsure how to express what he wanted in words. He twisted his hands together, then brightened up - Gabriel and Devon could literally feel Dennis cheer as the lightbulb went off in his head despite his expression remaining unchanged - and patted himself down quickly, rummaging through his pockets. Shrugging, Gab and Dev settled down against the railing of the stairs and waited.

Dennis brought out his sketchbook and pen from underneath his coat. After some quick scribbling he held it up for the twins to see, the anxiety he was feeling radiating off the blonde boy like smoke.

"Oh, you were looking for Cecil, Willow and Sapphire to see if you could tag along with them while they went out?" Gab said, grinning. "And you thought they went out into the snow already, so you wanted to look for them outside?"

Dennis nodded fervently.

"Hmm." Dev stroke his chin thoughtfully. "I think they're still here... Why do you want to join them, anyway?"

Dennis furrowed his brows as if he were getting his thoughts together, then gestured to the outside with both hands as if he were welcoming a guest star, jazz hands and all. It felt like he was saying 'Isn't it pretty?'

Dev and Gab exchanged a whole conversation of looks that lasted a few seconds. Then they shrugged and turned to face Dennis again, who was starting to feel like he was a bit anxious. "Ok, I guess," They said in unison.

Dennis's aura light up like a happy lightbulb.

Gabriel smiled and added, "Don't get lost!" and Devon added with a teasing grin "Don't get caught by the witches either!"

By the time they walked down the stairs, Dennis had already darted out of the house, door swinging shut behind him with a quiet click. Devon held up a pack of cards, Gabriel grinned at him, and the two walked towards the living room and quietly grabbed seats at the table. Gabriel started to shuffle the cards, and the twins began to play a game of two-person poker.

---------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, Dennis had found Cecil, Sapphire and Willow. He ran up towards them, coming to a pause in front of Cecil. He gave a wave of hello to Sapphire and Willow before looking up with beseeching eyes at Cecil, a 'can I come with you?' air surrounding him directed in full force towards the older boy.

ImageLisi was surprised to only be hit with more silence as the new child continued to avoid her questions. She was reminded of one of her earlier thoughts. Looking the child up and down quizzically, she began to wonder if they actually couldn't talk. Would it be rude to ask? Well, rude or not, there was only one way that she would be able to know for sure.

Lisi began to open her mouth in order to ask the child if they could indeed speak or not, when different words suddenly began spilling out of her mouth. "Do the kids here really have abilities? The kind that makes people hate them?"

Lisi stood there stunned for a couple of seconds. Why had she said that? That hadn't been anything like what she wanted to say! Shaking her head, Lisi slowly looked up at the still nameless child. Maybe it was her subconscious telling her that the child wouldn't believe that easily that most of the kids here had powers. But why would she have added that last question? Why would anybody ever hate someone just because they had powers? Well, whatever! Shaking it off, Lisi decided that there was no use dwelling on it any longer.

"Well, anyways! I guess that you might need some proof that the people here have abilities, huh?" Nodding, Lisi looked around for somebody who could give an presentation of their ability. Spotting Devon and Gabriel playing poker in the living room, she linked arms with the child and rushed over to the twins.

Smiling brightly as they arrived next to them, Lisi gestured happily between the three people standing around her. "Dev! Gab! This is... uh, well, they're a new resident here! And this is Devon and Gabriel! They're basically the doctors around here." Turning to each person in turn, Lisi then turned her attention to the two boys sitting at the table. "Do you guys think that you could show the new kid an example of your abilities? You could go ahead and use them on me if you need to!" She said before eagerly holding out her arm. She knew that Gabriel had the ability to cause injuries, but as long as Devon could heal her, it wouldn't be too bad. Plus, she trusted the two.

Aya deadpanned a bit when the cub that Caleb had summoned not to long ago jumped off of his lap and walked over to hers. She couldn't help but stiffen a bit as it snuggled against her, her cheeks beginning to show a slight red tint. Aya had always had a soft spot for cats, and tigers are felines.

Cautiously reaching one of her hands out, Aya gently set her hand on the cub's head, giving it a small pat. She was slightly surprised by the fact that the tiger was real. While her foxes could interact with others, nobody could touch them. Whenever she had tried to pet them, her hand had always just gone through them. Suddenly gaining a bit of enthusiasm, Aya began to gently caress every inch of the cub that she could. Enjoying the feeling of it's soft, silky fur.

Caleb's statement about the cub liking Aya not only brought her out of her trance, but also caused a slightly deeper shade of red to cover her cheeks. She shrugged at the boy's comment about not being very good with names, continuing to play with Nkoe's paw as she did. "It's ok. I'm not very good at a lot of things. And for what it matters, I like the name Nkoe." She gave a slightly awkward smile along with the compliment. She wasn't very good at this whole compliment thing, but hey, it's the thought that counts, right?

Aya was slightly sad to see the cub disappear, but she tried to hold any signs of it back. Turning her attention back to the boy sitting in front of her, she gave him a small, thankful smile for offering his help. She then leaned back and looked at the ceiling in thought. Caleb's statement about naming his cub in a different language sparked an idea. "We could just name them Ichi and Ni. It means one and two in Japanese. Or... is that dumb?"

Scratching her head, Aya looked down at the ground. "Plus, which one would be Ichi and which would be Ni...?" Sighing a bit, she looked up at Caleb and asked, "What do you think?".

Ash let out a silent sigh of air they hadn't realized had gotten trapped in their throat. She hadn't noticed, thank goodness. Or well, she did, but brushed it off. Despite it costing them their family, their happiness, pretty much anything, they still used this stupid ability. Force of habit, perhaps.

They were caught off guard by Lisi dragging them off to a set of people who hadn't been there earlier. They almost fell, stumbling to keep up. It had been awhile since they had been jerked around in such a manner.

The pair seemed...kinda young to be doctors. Then again, so did their mother, and she technically wasn't a doctor, either...

Lisi suddenly held out her arm. What kind of ability did they have? We're they healers? How would that work? She didn't seem ill at all- far too bouncy and bubbly. They decided to wait and see before prompting anything else.

Elise listened intently at Cosmo's story, and smiled when Cecil was mentioned. But, when witches came up, she began to feel uncomfortable. She was happy that Willow, Cecil, and Sapphire decided to investigate the area. It made her feel safer. Then, when everyone gathered to see the person at the door, she simply stayed seated in her chair. She didn't want to see this person, nor did she care. She actually was still getting used to having some of the newer children around, much less a new one.

While all of this continued to happen, Elise pondered on if she should talk to the newer children more. She knew for a fact that she was slightly scared. She began to think they would say she's crazy for her telekenetic abilities. Even so, she knew better than that. She set the thoughts aside.

Suddenly, she saw Dev and Gab walk into the room and sit at a table with a deck of cards. She watched them curiously as they began to play with them. After awhile, Lisi suddenly burst into the room with someone else beside her. Surely, Elise was startled by the noise Lisi suddenly made, but she recovered quickly. As Lisi explained what Dev and Gab's powers were in a very subtle way, Elise listened closely with interest. She loved using her powers, and she also wanted to demonstrate for the new kid, even if she wouldn't interact much with them after. She walked over to them and smiled, "May I demonstrate as well, Lisi? I'd love the new kid to see a variety of things that we can do." Elise silently waited for an answer.

(OOC: So I'm guessing the living room is the same as the main room? If not, just act as if she moved into the living room to get more comfortable or something.)

  1. Dev and Gab situation - They're showing off their powers to Ash like showmen. They inflicted a vertical but shallow arm wound on Lisi, then asked Elise if she wanted to be the closing act.

    by Alle9009
  2. Dennis situation - he agrees to obey Cecil and then reacts to getting hugged by Willow with mild panic, because suddenly not being able to see would cause panic in most people lol. Turned out his hat was covering his eye. After settling it he sends a questioning aura at Willow because he wasn't quite sure what she's talking about (he just asked with his emotional aura and used puppy-eyes lol) and after that, Cecil notices something. Dennis then wriggles out of Willow's hug (no longer a stuffed teddybear) and he heads to Sapphire's side, making it evident that he agrees with Sapphire and would like to help Cecil continue to look. Also he thinks they're going on a walk, which was why he wanted to come with them in the first place because late-night snow walks in a forest is probably pretty breathtaking. I dunno, I don't live in a place where snow is a thing so...

  3. Jaz is still passed out in the snow, probably about to die from hypothermia lol.

"Hah, royal flush! I win!" Devon placed his cards down with a grin as Gabriel groaned and slumped his head against the table. "Another round?"

"Sure, sure, just give me a second to shuffle," Gabriel said, gathering the cards together into a pile. He perked back up as he began to shuffle the cards, hands moving with finesse and expertise like a casino dealer, or more accurately a conman from the streets. "I'll win next time, just you wait!" He declared cheerily, ignoring Devon rolling his eyes with a fond smile. Before they could spread the cards, though, Lisi called out to them.

"Dev! Gab! This is... uh, well, they're a new resident here! And this is Devon and Gabriel! They're basically the doctors around here."


New resident! Devon and Gabriel turned their heads in unison. They saw Lisi dragging a kid who looked around fourteen with brown hair, who seemed a bit weirded out. Devon readjusted his spectacles and shot a welcoming smile at the boy - girl - person, while Gabriel placed the pack of cards down with a cheery smile that looked identical to his brother's, reaching up to tip his hat in greeting.

"Hi!" They said together.

"Do you guys think that you could show the new kid an example of your abilities? You could go ahead and use them on me if you need to!"


The twins exchanged a couple of looks. Even if it was only a couple of seconds, it seemed as if a whole conversation had passed in between them.

Dev raised an eyebrow. It'll hurt Lisi.

Gab raised an eyebrow back, shrugging. She volunteered, and I think it'll help out her pal there! Show them their not all alone and stuff. Why not?

Devon's eyes narrowed apprehensively, then sighed. Well... alright, fine. Just... nothing too much, ok?[/color] A light smirk touched his lips. Let's put on a show.

Gabriel grinned. Knew I could count on you bro. Would I ever make it boring?

Internal conversation done, they turned to face Lisi and the new resident with identical large grins, who was now joined by Elise. [color=darkgreen]"We'll do it Lisi, just take a couple of steps forward. New kid, stay where you are." Gabriel instructed, gently guiding her forwards to the desired spot. Devon, meanwhile, took a step forwards towards Newkid, holding up the pack of cards in his hand like a microphone.

If they were going to do this, they were going to do this with style.

"Lady or Gentleman, girls and boy and hermaphrodite genderqueer kid, people of all ages!" Devon grinned welcomingly at Newkid and Elise, holding the pack of cards in his hand up to his mouth like a microphone. "Welcome to the Whimsical Residence for Wayward Children, where children of all ages gather! I, Devon Zarzuela, am your announcer for tonight! We here at the WRWC are proud to present our opening act - the amazing Zarzuelas! He stepped to the side as hewaved his hands jazz-style at Gab and Lisi, grinning. Gabriel grinned and bowed as if he was performing a show as Devon added Sponsored by Mr Cosmo, owner of the WRWC!"

"Thank you Devon, I'll take over from here! Gabriel Zarzuela speaking, the show is about to begin! As you can see, we have a girl from the audience to help with the act." Gabriel spread his arms out in a wide gesture, showcasing Lisi. He gently took hold of her wrist and held it up, showing it to Newkid and Elise with a flourish. "As you can see, her skin is smooth and unmarked, totally unblemished and unharmed! But wait!" Gabriel gasped theatrically, pointing to Lisi's arm. "Something's appearing!"

As he spoke, a small cut was appearing rapidly on the middle of Lisi's forearm, growing until it was a large but shallow vertical wound that spanned from wrist to the middle of her forearm as if an invisible knife had just sliced her skin open. It would be obvious to the spectators that there was no way that it had been created by any physical object. It wasn't lifethreatening, but it still looked pretty nasty. As they looked, blood began trickling thinly out of it, flowing down her arm.

"And now I pass the next part of the act to Devon," Gabriel said hurriedly, holding the arm still. Devon was already standing next to Lisi, ready to heal the wound.

"Don't worry, Lisi, it won't scar. Now watch as I make it go away! Y uno y dos y..." Devon pressed a hand reassuringly against Lisi's arm away from the wound, presenting it firmly to the audience so that they could see what happened next. It was almost as if time had sped up - the wound stopped bleeding, clotted and began to close up into a rapidly disappearing scar. Within seconds, there was nothing but smooth skin where the wound had been. "...tres." Devon finished, grinning at the Elise and Newkid. "As you can see, the wound has disappeared! Thanks for helping out as a demo, Lisi."

Gabriel tipped his hat off to her as Devon bowed like a waiter, and they both turned to the audience. "And that concludes our show! Thank you, thank you!" They bowed to imaginary applause as one; Gabriel bringing his hat in front of him, then they looked up with identical mischievous grins.

"So what do you think, Newkid?" Gabriel asked Newkid cheerily. At the same time, Devon turned to Elise with an equally cheery grin, asking "Want to be our closing act, Elise?"
--------------------------------------------------

Dennis blinked when Cecil allowed him to join, then nodded quickly, pleasure radiating off him like a cat who'd just seen salmon in its bowl. He really liked how pretty the snow was in the dark, especially in the forest...

The pleasure turned into surprise when something warm slammed against his back, arms enveloping him from behind and jostled his cap down over his non-bandaged eye. He radiated startled surprise at Willow and the others as he swallowed down sudden panic at not being able to see and blinked in the sudden darkness, trying to get an arm free from Willow's tight hold to get his hat out of his face. Dennis was so focused on wriggling an arm free that he didn't hear anything.

After some squirming, he freed an arm and pushed his hat back up firmly on his head. The white flakes blended into the white of Dennis's hat as they fell down onto the people outside, although it showed up well enough against his navy coat. He craned his neck around to look at her, confusion evident on both his face and the aura that generally surrounded him like an invisible transparent cloak. Teach you what? was the general thing she would feel from him.

Dennis wasn't quite sure what Willow was talking about. All he did was ask Cecil if he could join the late-night winter walk out, and Cecil agreed. He tilted his head quizzically at her, but then Cecil said something about finding somebody and Dennis turned back to face Cecil, curios as to what was going on.

Dennis tilted his head questioningly as Willow asked if something had happened, radiating confusion so palpable that one could see figurative question marks flying around his head. It was obvious that he hadn't heard anyone, but...

Dennis wriggled out of Willow's hug and walked over to Sapphire, standing next to him. Looking at Cecil and Willow, Dennis pointed at Sapphire and nodded emphatically, radiating an air of agreement. I didn't hear anything, but I agree with Sapphire. Then his aura turned questioning, and the words were clear on Dennis's face. I'll help you look if you want?

Before Elise got an answer, the twins already began their demonstration. Elise silently giggled at the way they anounced their abilities. Once it ended, she perked up at Devon's request for her to be the closing act. She smiled brightly. "Of course, Dev!" She started by breathing in. Then, she concentrated all her focus on one of the couches in the room. Suddenly, it began to float.

Elise made it circle around the room a couple of times before setting it back where it was. She smirked. "And there you have it! A wonderful performance by the great Dev and Gab with their humble assistant, Elise!" She bowed and waited for a reaction from the new kid. "Speechless, aren't you?" Although she had a pang of distrust hit her, she remained calm and friendly.

  1. TL;dr In which Ash does not quite react very positively to kids with more obvious abilities than theirs.

  2. Just in case I caused any confusion for my vagueness, Ash is mute, but they can put words in people's mouths, so to speak. Its a sort of passive mind control, as the person would just blurt out whatever Ash prompted them to. It wouldn't even register as a conscious thought to the person. I'll explain more if needed, just ask in the ooc forum or wait for me to add details in story. Again, I'm sorry if I was vague, it's an unusual ability to explain, at least for me.

They flinched back, when the pair playing poker suddenly turned to face Ash. Those two seemed to debate whether or not it was a good idea to demonstrate their abilities using Lisi, which made their stomach twist for some reason.

They took a step back when one of them headed towards them while Lisi finally was out of their personal bubble- so consolation was snuffed out before it could ease their sudden nerves.

And all of a sudden the two went carny mode, which almost made them overlook being called a hermaphrodite gender queer kid- just plain kid would've suficed and oh god he's cutting her arm open with his mind.

This isn't normal how is this normal how is she okay with this what is wrong with these people-


Their jaw slackened, and they didn't even register when the one that had neared them was already at Lisa's side, placing his hand on the injury, and healing it until it seemed as if a child's arm hadn't suddenly been sliced open by an invisible force.

They simply stared, dumfounded. They probably wouldn't have snapped out of it if it weren't for another girl that approached, wanting to show off as well.

And moved a couch around. Apparently also with her mind.

They were...okay with this? Compared to them, Ash felt like people reacted far too harshly for becoming a voice box. At least they didn't bloody cut the arm of a willing girl, or move a couch around. With their mind.

Ash stared at her- Elise?- before unintentionally prompting, "Well what the hell do you expect, idiotic clapping?

Image





Elise was surprised by her sudden blurting out. Seeing as the new kid most likely has an ability, she figured it's what they were trying to say. She let it sink in for a moment. Startled by the new kid's sudden attitude, Elise flinched. Her face contorted into one of slight hurt. "You know, you could've just said 'Yes'. You don't have to be so rude!" She was quite surprised by them. She went out of her way to be nice and actually interact with them, but they just respond in a disrespectful way. Elise's eyes glossed over with a small amount of tears. After all, she was a little sensitive. Elise didn't want to be around the new kid any further. Their presence angered her, which only fueled her distrust more. The feeling she tries to not have rose up once more.

Their tone of voice reminded her of when she dissapointed her parents. She didn't like that memory. Just thinking about it made her face go red with both anger and fear. She bowed her head at Lisi and the twins before walking towards the doorway to the hall. She didn't look back at them as she said, "I'm going to bed. See you in the morning you three." Before leaving, Elise mumbled incoherently, "This is why I never bother with the new ones."

Once she made it back to her room, she changed into some more comfortable clothes and snuggled between her collection of stuffed animals, under the warm blankets of her bed. "Was I too harsh?" She held up a stuffed black rabbit in front of her. It stared back with its red, beady eyes, unresponding. Elise's face darkened a little. "Nah, they deserved it. You're totally right, Luna." Her breathing slowed and her eyes began to close. She yawned.



"Hm.. I wonder if they're a boy or girl.."

Lisi grinned happily as the twins agreed to showcase their abilities to the new kid. The sudden appearance of Elise proved to make the girl even happier as she offered to demonstrate her powers as well. Lisi knew that the younger girl didn't like interacting with the new residents very much, so her offer helped make the girl even more excited. "Of course you can demonstrate your powers Elise! I love watching you use them."

As Dev and Gab launched into their performance, Lisi happily obliged with everything they asked of her. It wasn't until Gabriel grabbed her wrist that a tiny bit of anxiety rushed through her. 'It'll be fine!', she reminded herself, 'It's not like they'd seriously hurt me or anything!'. Holding back the slight flinch she felt when Gab started cutting her arm, she casually looked up at her arm to find a bit of a shocking scene.

Lisi hadn't expected them to make a cut quite so large. Sure, the new child needed to be able to see it, but she had thought that it'd be a bit smaller! Attempting to look unfazed, she looked back at the others and gave a wobbly smile. However her eyes widened a few seconds later when she felt the warmth of blood dripping down her arm. Was it supposed to be bleeding that much?!

She gave Devon a frail smile at the comment that the cut wouldn't scar, and watched with relief as he began to heal the wound. When all was done and over with, Lisi let out a silent sigh of relief. She didn't want to make the others think that she didn't trust the twins, but that turned out to be surprisingly nerve racking for her! Letting out a cheerful, "No problem!" at the boys thanks, Lisi then turned her attention to Elise in order to watch her display.

She grinned and clapped excitedly as the quiet girl began to lift up a couch with her mind. There were certainly times when Lisi wished that she had abilities of her own. But it was times like these when she felt that she was actually lucky not to have any, since she got to appreciate the other kids abilities even more.

After the couch had been set down, Lisi heard Elise ask the new kid what they thought. She was about to explain to her that they had still yet to speak, but things ended up getting out of hand before she could. Elise had become offended and was now snapping at the unnamed child. Lisi was surprised, she didn't see the timid girl angry very often. She was about to rush over and comfort her when the girl suddenly rushed off to her room. Lisi wanted to chase after her, but she couldn't just leave the new resident alone. Cosmo had assigned her to take care of them.

Deciding that she'd go check on Elise later, Lisi then turned her attention to the new child. "I'm so sorry! This is all my fault! I should have explained what all of their powers were before hand so that you wouldn't have been so surprised." Looking down, the pink haired girl felt her eyes growing moist as she began to play with her fingers. "There's really nothing to worry about. All of the children here are very good people, nobody here would use their powers for anything bad!" Looking up now to make eye contact with the brunette child, a new determined look had taken the place of her tears. "There is absolutely no reason to be scared of any of the people here! Their abilities may be a bit frightening at first, but I would trust each and every one of them with my life!"

Nodding as if resolute, Lisi looked expectantly at the new child, as if she was waiting for them to say something. Recalling the fact that the child seemed reluctant to talk, if they could at all, an a idea suddenly popped into the girl's head. Rushing out of the room, Lisi threw a quick, "Stay right there!" over her shoulder as she rushed up the Residence's stairs.

Running through the hallways, Lisi didn't stop until she reached her room. Quickly bursting through the door, she spent no time looking around as she rushed to her desk and grabbed some of her stationary and a blue sparkly gel pen. Closing the door on her way out, Lisi then rushed back down stairs and came to a stop in the living room once more.

Panting, Lisi held out the pink stationary to the new child, handing over the pen as well. "T-this way you... can communicate with us without having to actually... talk." She exclaimed, still slightly out of breath. "Go on, tell us anything you'd like us to know!" She smiled reassuringly at the child in front of her.

Aya's eyes widened slightly as she heard Caleb yawn. Hadn't he yawned earlier as well? She couldn't help the feeling of stupidity that suddenly washed over her as she watched the boy lounging on the chair. Of course he was bored, who wouldn't be bored in this situation. All that she had done this whole time was slightly insult him and then proceed to ask him what she should name her foxes. Of course he didn't care, he probably didn't even want to be here!

Aya's face noticeably scrunched up as she loudly cleared her throat. "Sorry. You're right, they're my foxes. I shouldn't have bothered you with silly things like naming them..." Shrugging, Aya looked down at the ground and began to draw random patterns on the floor with her finger. "It's just that... I don't really talk to people very often, so maybe I got a bit too excited."

She was making herself look so weak, she had told herself that she wouldn't ever talk to people like this. But, Caleb didn't really seem like the type to make fun of her or go off spreading rumors, so maybe it was ok. Well, even if he did, she'd just have to deal with it when it happened. No need to worry about it right now.

Standing up from her spot on the ground, Aya awkwardly looked up at the older boy and mumbled, "I can go if you want, you seem pretty bored. I know that I'm not very good at making conversation..."

Ash wasn't surprised at her reaction. She seemed more bothered by what was prompted instead of the fact she had been prompted. Her eyes had welled in tears, obviously deeply offended. What a shallow girl, to not even have noticed that they were suddenly overwhelmed by the entire situation- a house in the middle of nowhere, people with far more obvious abilities than their own, who feigned kindness quite poorly when it was more clear they simply wanted to show off.

Well, if anything, it showed that it was mildly safe, if they willing to shamelessly flaunt such abilities.

Their attention was diverted by the sniffling girl, who all but stormed out of the room, muttering none too quietly to herself.

Well, for what mattered, Lisi seemed to be aware of the mistake of showing too much too soon without much context. She apologized quickly, attempting to explain that, despite their abilities, they were harmless.

The people here were probably also incredibly shallow, but if that were the case, they probably wouldn't have to worry about people trying to invade their personal space, like Lisi. But she didn't seem stupid, judging how she immediately identified the problem instead of pissing and moaning that they could maybe try to be nice by humoring others with lies even if the past event left them a bit shaken. At least she had that in her favor.

She then left the room, telling them to wait- as if they could do anything else, aside from turning on their heel and leaving the house- and she soon returned with a pen and stationary.

This actually surprised them. Their scowl softened to a more puzzled expression as they took the objects. They actually did know sign language, but often would make people turn away from them after messing with them, forcing them to say things as if they were mere ventriloquist dummies, even if they didnt catch on that they were being used. Ash hadn't been messing with these people, they were genuinely shocked at the whole situation and slipped, but even so, Lisi wanted to have a conversation.

My name is Ash Canary. I don't see why you bother wanting to talk to me they wrote.

Cecil shrugs. "You're right. It's something. After we get this kid warmed up, I'm counting on you to take care of me, Sapphire." He winks at Sapphire as they arrive at the door.
--
Lucy taps her chin. "I've never really tried something like that! Maybe I could, though. Let's seeeee..." She starts to put her crayon to paper, but—
--
At Willow's words, some of the children inside exchange glances with each other. Cosmo reappears out of thin air, saucers with tea cups full of warm tea on them floating around him. He looks at Willow, bewildered, before she shifts into cat form. He lowers himself to the ground and crosses his arms, turning towards the others. "Alright, listen, listen! If there is a Wayward Child in need of help from the cold, we're all going to need to prepare! Hot towels! Blankets! Heating pads! Anything that conducts heat, please, please!" He turns toward the door just in time for it to swing open.

Cecil and the rest of them arrive at the door, with the brunet stepping into the room with a bit of urgency. A few of the other children trickle into the room with the requested objects, and Cecil scans the room. "... Are Dev and Gab around? I think we could use them, since they're doctors. They won't be able to heal something like this, but..." His eyes shift over to the unconsccious boy on Sapphire's back. "... I'd like them to take a look at him." After all, doctors should know what to do for hypothermia better than an amateur detective.

Lucy widens her eyes at the scene, a little perturbed by the sight of an unusually pale boy who isn't conscious. She frowns and grabs onto Rhys's sleeve to guide him with her before stepping over to Cecil's side. Suddenly, she isn't so mad anymore.

Willow || Sapphire Wynters

Arriving back at the residence, Sapphire took a look around the room they had just stepped into before finding an empty couch. Striding over, he absently noticed Willow passed out in the middle of the floor. Still, he crouched down next to the empty piece of furniture, laying the unconscious kid down gently, propping the boy's head up with one of the cushions before taking a step back to let those who needed to get closer.

With that done, Sapphire scooped up Willow who didn't protest the action in her dozing state. Cat in hand, the blue-haired teen moved to stand next to Cecil once more, watching things unravel with a concerned look upon his face. Sighing softly, he murmured under his breath. "I hope everything turns out alright..."

Cecil looks over to Sapphire and grins at him. "With our help, he'll be fine. We actually made it a little earlier than expected. Once we get Dev and Gab get here, he'll help them out. For now, look." Some of the other members have been putting everything warm on Jaz, and one child even lets flames flow from her fingers, holding them out towards the unconscious boy as if she were imitating a furnace. "Teamwork's a beautiful thing, isn't it?" He bumps the boy's shoulder.

Lucy grabs a hold of Cecil's jacket, and he looks down at her, a small smile on his face. "I see you made a friend. You're a little scared, huh? Well, don't worry about him. He'll be fine. My guesses are never wrong." He pats her head.

Oliver, who had been taking care of all the indoor plants, had walked in from the kitchen to see what all the ruckus was. Upon surveying his surroundings, and seeing an unconscious boy on the couch, he widens his eyes. A few flower petals flutter off of his body in shock.

Lisi couldn't help the excited squeal that slipped past her lips as the new child excepted the stationary she had offered. She felt herself bouncing up and down in anticipation as she waited for them to finish whatever they were writing. When they were finally done she quickly rushed over in order to read what was written on the paper.

She let out an excited gasp as she realized that the child had finally informed them of their name. "Your name is Ash? What a wonderful name!" Lisi said with a big grin as she clapped her hands together happily. When she read the second part of the note however, she couldn't help but look at Ash with confusion.

"I'm talking to you because I want to get to know you better. Why wouldn't I want to talk to you?" She tilted her head curiously, wondering why the younger child would even ask why they bothered to talk to her. However, before she could get an answer she head somebody burst through the front door.

Turning, Lisi watched with wide eyes as Willow rushed into the living room and shouted something about a 'cold person'. Not long after she watched as the others rushed inside carrying a boy between them. It was obvious that this was the so called cold person that Willow had been speaking of, and soon just about all of the children were attempting to warm him up.

Motioning to Ash that she would be right back, Lisi walked over to the freezing boy and made a contribution of her own. Taking off the hat that she always wore, the girl carefully put it on the boy. "It's important to keep your head warm!" She stated to no one in particular as she moved out of the way so that Dev and Gab could reach the child.

Walking back over to Ash's side, Lisi attempted to smooth her hair down. She wasn't used to walking around without her hat, but this was for a good cause. Turning to the child at her side, Lisi smiled a bit warily before saying, "Well, it looks like you aren't the only new kid anymore.". Lisi just hoped that Cosmo would take the time to explain things to this child, she obviously wasn't really cut out for that job.

  1. Basically Dev and Gab smile non-menacingly at Ash and tell him that they're not mad at him and explain why they'd made it so hamtastic - show that its cool for him to be there and that abilities are ok and that he's welcome. They're a bit upset that Ash made Elise cry though, so they're a bit telling-off with their words, although still warm.

  2. Lisi comes back with the notebook, Cecil's crew enters, Gab and Dev go doctor mode on Jaz and after some examination say that a change of clothes, warm bed and warm everything plus a cold compress to bring his temperature down is cool and that ultimately they have to keep Jaz warm and wait for him to sweat off the fever.

  4. Dennis splits the macaroon into four pieces and shares it with Willow, Cecil and Sapphire to cheer them up and get Cecil to eat something, and also because he knows that Cecil like that macaroon flavour and feels a bit bad about eating Cecil's favourite macaroon lol the lil cinnamon bun

That could have gone better. Devon and Gabriel watched as Elise headed back up to her room, incensed and holding back tears from the sarcastic reply from the Newkid. While Lisi went off to grab something from upstairs, they turned as one to face Ash, their faces and body unreadable.

For a moment, the silence was almost uncomfortable. Then Gabriel launched himself towards Devon with an emotional wail.

"Wahh, Brother, they didn't enjoy the show!" Ignoring Ash, Gabriel clung to his brother with a tearful look on his face, Devon patting Gabriel comfortingly on the back. "Even after all the trouble Lisi and Elise went through - and us, of course - they didn't like iiiit!"

"There, there, brother of mine. Maybe its because you made the wound too big? You always had trouble with that." Devon mused, placing a hand to the back of Gabriel's head as he rested his chin against Devon's shoulder. "Or maybe he didn't like me healing Lisi's wound with a touch, or Elise's closing act, or our theatrical attempts to get him comfortable with the place - dearie me, there's so many to choose from!" He looked thoughtfully at Ash. "Which one do you think it is?"

"Hmm, I dunno, maybe all three?" Almost as if he'd forgotten his disappointment Gabriel let go of Devon, whirling around to face Ash with startling suddenness. He smiled brightly and leant down close, eyes shut in happy small crescents. "My ability is to cause injuries with merely a touch, while Devon's power heals." he said breezily. He waved a hand in the air, as if to say I know right? "As you can expect, people didn't take kindly to that since they fear what they can't understand, and my power is destructive. They tried to lynch us, haha! But it doesn't matter here, because Mr Cosmo took us in." Gabriel laughed, whirling around and taking a couple of steps back to Devon's side. He turned to face Ash with a smile and half-lidded eyes, leaning against Devon's shoulder once again. "Any child in need arrives here -"

"And Mr Cosmos will help!" Devon finished. He shot a smile towards Ash as well, although his eyes weren't quite as bright as his brothers. He reached up with a hand to readjust his glasses. "What we're saying that it's ok to use your abilities here, no one will prosecute you for it. We didn't do it for appreciation, although that'd be welcome. Sorry if it was overwhelming. We did the act to make you feel welcome, and to show that even if your ability is destructive it's ok because nobody here will care about it! Unless you try to use it on them without their permission, of course." He smiled warningly at Ash, placing his hand in his pocket. "Mr Cosmos would not be pleased. If you can't control it, though, it's ok! We'll help you learn how to control your ability here. It would be cool if you could be a little nicer so that the others would find it easier to approach you - look how you made Elise cry?- but its ok if you don't want to. It doesn't really matter anyway - once you're here, you're one of us." The two of them smiled warmly at Ash.

Before Ash could respond, Lisi had rushed down the stairs and towards them, shoving a notebook into Ash's hands. The twins stood back and watched the scene unfold, smiling to themselves.

It didn't matter if Ash hadn't received their message, or thought of them as jerks with no sense of proportion. What mattered was that they had heard the message. It'd probably sink in one day, the way it had for them when Mr Cosmos had talked to them all those years ago.

The two looked up as the front door burst open, revealing Willow who barked out something about a really cold kid. They looked at each other in concern as Mr Cosmos talked about blankets, and when Cecil burst through the door with Dennis (who was carrying a macaroon carefully in his hands with a look of concentration) and Sapphire, who was carrying somebody on his back, the two exchanged a look of surprise.

Gabriel was already moving when Cecil asked for the Zarzuela twins to check up on the unconscious boy. Devon stayed back a little longer to leave some parting words for Ash. "We're off to check on the other new kid now, but you should apologise to Elise." he advised Ash, glancing up the stairs. "Doesn't matter if you meant it or not, you were still pretty mean to her. You made her cry, so you should apologise. That's what people normally do when they make people cry."

Sure, there were extenuating circumstances sometimes, but this situation was not one of them. Devon went off to see the unconscious kid, who was laid out on the couch. He took his place beside Gabriel, who had brought the kit out and was examining the boy. For a while, they looked him over, grabbing a towel to dry him off as they both went about their work with a professionalism that had been belied by their age.

"I can see his ribs, his skin is hot and sweaty to the touch despite him shaking up a storm, his lips and fingers have also turned a bit blue..." Devon said at length, frowning. "Cyanosis, temperature of 38.4 degrees celsius and malnutrition." Gabriel finished. They both looked at each other, exchanging internal conversation faster than people could register.

"We've dried him off the best we can without actually taking his clothes off, but he should still put on something warm," Dev instructed, pushing his spectacles up the bridge of his nose. The normally smiling teen had a serious look on his face as he continued, "Keeping him warm is a priority, he should rest near the fireplace, I think."

"A change of clothes is in order, and he should probably eat something liquidy and warm tomorrow like warm milk so that his stomach won't reject it, but.... Gabriel looked up, glancing at Devon as if for confirmation.

"He should be fine." They chorused, smiling up at the others with relief.

Meanwhile, Dennis had carefully, carefully broken the macaroon in four equal pieces, with the help of a knife that he'd found in the kitchen. He'd nearly cut his finger, but luckily there was no wounds that needed to be attended to. Dennis closed his eyes in bliss as he slipped one piece of macaroon in his mouth, savouring the flavour of the sweet. Cupping the pieces tenderly in his hand, Dennis walked over to Sapphire and Willow before slipping two pieces into Sapphire's hands, gesturing that it was for the two of them before wandering off towards Cecil.

Hopefully it'd cheer them up...

Next was Cecil. Dennis still remembered Cecil's comment about not eating for two days. That had been why he'd held onto the macaroon instead of eating it like Cecil had meant him to, hiding it in the palm of his hand. He'd thought of breaking it into two pieces at first, but what if Sapphire and Willow felt left out? That wouldn't be nice... So four equal pieces. Dennis was still vaguely disappointed about not being able to stay out as long as he liked, but that didn't really matter anymore, now that they'd found a new household member. Better him living in the house than dying out in the snow.

Walking up to Cecil, Dennis grabbed his hand and dropped the macaroon onto his palm, curling Cecil's fingers shut with his own. He pushed it towards Cecil, looking up at him and gesturing for Cecil to eat the macaroon.

It seemed that the two understood that they probably went a bit overboard, and also took a moment to explain that they did it for reasons that Ash had already deducted- to show it was alright, safe.

Yet they chastised Ash for making Elise cry. Well, s'not my fault she can't read basic expressions like mild overwhelment. She seriously expected me to act that way. She only cried because I wasn't as giddily impressed as she hoped one would be after watching someone slice another person's arm open WITH THEIR MIND- or touch apparently- or be able to fling objects around with their mind.

Actually, it was probably good she started to cry instead of flinging me to a wall. She probably really wanted to do that. That ended up happening to me a lot, though not through mind power. My shoulder hurts just thinking about it.
Their hand reflectively went up to their shoulder, pushing their fingers under their scarf. More often than not, it was their left shoulder that ended up in the firm grip of an adult- mostly adults, they didn't often stick around kids their age- and would get the same treatment as Ash had given to their fragile pride.

Well, it seemed kids had as much pride to shatter. Or bruise.

And it seemed that, using their power as they usually did was a no-no. Obviously. But how could they tell if it was in fact an accident?

...Well, to be fair, their snapping towards Elise had been unintended. Not regrettable, but unintended.

They doubted she would even accept the apology, so they decided to just forget about it and carry on.

They also didn't want people to talk to, or be approachable. They just wanted safety. And meals. Then they would leave. But first, they needed to settle. Then to prepare. Then leave.

It was obvious that leaving anytime soon wasn't an option, as soon as they brought in a human popsicle to be. That kid must've been sick to start with- they had been walking around in the weather since before the trees shed their leaves for the year, since the first snow, and only experienced mild annoyance at the gusts of wind. Then again, they did eat often, how they got food is none of your concern, thank-you very much. They didn't have ribs poking out. Maybe you could see them a little, but that was just lack of fat, not severe malnutrition.

Not like a macaroon would stave off malnutrition. Didn't they have proper food here? If anything, the kid needed to eat watery sweet rice so they could get some substantial meal that wasn't to harsh on them.

Willow || Sapphire Wynters

At the twins' announcement that the kid would be fine, Sapphire slumped slightly in relief, leaning ever so slightly on Cecil. "I'm glad..." He smiled as Lucy dragged over a younger boy, tilting his head back to look upwards as he listened to the exchange between Cecil and the girl.

It wasn't until he felt something being put into his hand that he looked down again, noticing Dennis in front of him. Looking at what he was given he noticed two small piece of macron. "Thank you Dennis." Sapphire smiled warmly at the boy as he then went on to pass a piece over to Cecil as well. Straightening up, he ate his piece before gently nudging Willow awake so that the cat could eat hers too.

That done, Sapphire turned to ask Cecil if there was anything in particular that he wanted to eat but the door opened and from the corner of his eye he could see as a small figure with bright orange hair peered through the opening.


~*~*~*~

Corvus

Thankfully by this point the blizzard seemed to be dying down a little, but Corvus knew better than to trust that it would stay that way. Predicting the weather was something he had never been good at, thus he had been caught out in his fair share of miserable weather during his travels.

He had stopped his complaining a few minutes previously, and had now settled for glaring at the snowflakes as they melted on his clothes. Shivering slightly, the ginger knew that if he didn't get to where he was going soon he might end up freezing. Rubbing his gloved hands together to create a little more warmth, he then shoved them into the pockets of his trousers, losing himself in thought as he forced himself to move forwards.

A short while later a familiar fox appeared before him, making the teen pause and blink a couple of times at the creature. "I don't have anything else for you." The small thing continued to stare up at him and he sighed a little. "I see, you want to stick around then, huh?" At the affirmative bark from the fox, Corvus rolled his eyes somewhat. "Very well then, come along. I can probably find something for you to eat when we get to where I'm heading."

The pair traveled through the snow in silence and about ten minutes later Corvus could see the residence up ahead. It looked just the same as the last time he was there, except that there seemed to be more flowers than before. The building seemed a little quieter than usual, though everyone was probably inside because of the weather so that was no cause for concern.

Cosmo had never seemed to have a problem with the ginger just waltzing into the building before, so that's what Corvus did. After closing the front door behind him, he could hear people talking in the living room and he headed in that direction, maybe Cosmo was in there? He did need to talk to the man to see if he didn't mind having the orange-haired teen stay for a few months.

Reaching the living room, he pushed open the door and peered through before stepping into the room fully. Corvus had to resist the urge to scowl when his scan of the people in the room showed that most of them were taller than himself. He also noted a slight level of tension in the air, and was that someone ill on the couch?

"So... I suppose this is a bad time then?"

At the sound of a newcomer's voice, Cecil is surprised. It's rare for Cecil to be surprised, so the brunet's green-eyed gaze snaps to the doorway, squinting his eyes slightly. He pats Dennis's head in thanks and pops the macaron in his mouth, chewing on it, before his features settle into a deep frown. As the other children scramble off to do what the good doctors told them—like change him into new clothes, move him closer to the furnace, and such, Cecil pats Sapphire's shoulder before he steps off over to Corvus, expression and tone blank.

"Who are you?"

Of course, he's seen this face before. He's always coming to visit Cosmo, but he never stays. He's always in and out of here, like it's nothing. Cecil wonders how someone could step into this place and not want to stay.

Lucy peers out from behind Cecil to see the redhaired boy, and blurts: "Whoa! He's really short!"
--
Oliver steps over to the crowd, petals falling out from his hair occasionally. He seems worried. "Ah... I w-was wondering, if there was anything I could do." He says to Dev and Gab, looking from one to the other. He presses his palms together a bit sheepishly.

Faye Chalmers

Faye smiled to Cosmo as he fixed the pot she had broken. She was grateful someone could repair her clumsiness so easily.
As she picked up the now fixed pot and placed it back where it belonged, very carefully, afraid it would fall again, she listened as some of the children began to leave for their witch hunt.

She frowned as Cecil left with them, she hoped they would be okay. It was awfully cold outside after all.
Quietly she moved towards the fire to contemplate the events. Has someone made her talk back then? It puzzled her so as she lifted her hands towards the warm fire.

It was then that Lisi brought in the new child, the one she had heard knocking at the door. Faye watched as the twins Dev and Gabe performed their act. She giggled at their eccentric performed and found herself amazed. She was always amazed at the gifts the other children had. Far better than hers, all she could do was walk up walls, as though gravity wasn't an object for her. However when she heard Ash's hard remark to Elise she frowned. It wasn't very polite of the boy to do such a thing.

Suddenly Willow burst into the room shouting about someone being cold? Cecil returned with Sapphire and few companiogns, to her horror a young boy was carried in on Sapphires back. Everyone began trying to keep him warm.

Faye knew she had to help, as Lisi gave the unconscious boy her hat Faye ran past her out of the main room. Skipping the stairs as they would take too long she jumped and connected her feet with the wall running along its surface adjacent to the floor. She hurried quickly to her room. Upon reaching the door she dropped down from the wall and burst into the room.

"blanket... blanket.." she muttered to herself rummaging under her bed. "ah!" she exclaimed upon finding her favorite gray one. It was fluffy and had been with her since she was only 6. It was one of her most treasured possessions, it was the warmest thing she owned. Bundling it together in her arms she quickly left her room and ran back down the stairs along the walls.

As she reached the bottom of the stairs Faye jumped back onto the floor and ran head first into the main room. "oomph!" she rasped as ran straight into something solid knocking her back a few steps. Rubbing her head she looked up to see what she had ran into to find a stranger standing there. He had bright orange hair and a fox was sitting beside him. He wasn't very tall, but then she wasn't very tall either. In fact taking a look he was about the same size as her.

"ah - um I'm so sorry! are you okay?" she said rubbing her head still as she felt her cheeks began to heat up. She was going red from the embarrassment she could feel it.

"I-I wanted to give this to- t-to the boy over there - I-I thought it would help - I was in a rush - I'm sorry" she said stumbling over her words nodding towards the unconscious boy near the fire and gesturing the Gray blanket in her arms. It appeared Dev and Gabe had already looked him over to Faye's relief.

"I-Is he Okay?" she asked peeking around the newcomer to get a better look at the unconscious boy.

  1. I decided to just get Resi involed in all this in order to introduce her. In here we see Resi accidently mistaking Corvus for a girl (Which she finds very funny by the way). And I also went ahead and had her get the idea of everyone going to sleep out there to the children so that this day doesn't last forever. She also tells Oliver that he should be more confident, and then asks the twins if they need anything from the kitchen.

Resi stood up from her desk and stretched, placing a hand against her mouth as a yawn floated past her lips. Looking around her room lazily, the blonde spotted a notepad and pen that she has been using earlier. Picking it up, she examined the half finished list of vegetables that she had been making for her trip with Oliver out to the garden tomorrow morning. They were going out before breakfast in order to pick some fresh vegetables for the kitchen. Gently seating herself once again on her desk chair, Resi decided to finish up the list she had been making.

Normally at this time of day the girl would still be downstairs in the kitchen, making anybody any last minute meals they needed before they headed off to bed. But today some of the younger children and kept her busy since the morning asking her if they could help her make some meals for the other residents. Unable to deny them, Resi had been on her toes all day attempting to keep the children from burning the Residence to the ground. Needless to say, she was a bit exhausted by this point and had informed the children that she was heading to her room. Telling them that if they needed anything to just knock.

Finished with the list, Resi set it aside and rested her chin on her hand. Maybe she'd make omelets for breakfast tomorrow. Resi made a mental note to ask around a bit to see if that was ok with everyone. Deciding that it was probably time to get ready for bed, the girl began to head towards her closet when she was suddenly stopped by a noise downstairs. Straining her ears a bit, she heard what sounded like people rushing into the manor from outside. Curiosity getting the best of her, Resi decided to go check it out.

Making her way down stairs, Resi looked to see that it appeared that everyone was gathered in the living room. Walking over to the doorway, she noticed Faye and a person that she had never seen before blocking the way. The new person had fiery orange hair, and setting her hand on one of their shoulders, she softly asked, "Excuse me Miss, but may I enter the room?"

However, when she got a better look at the person's face, she could barley contain her laughter. It was a man! One of the girl's cheeks puffing out in an attempt to choke back her laughter, Resi looked at the boy with delighted eyes. "Oh dear! Do excuse my mistake! It's just that you have such lovely hair, and such an adorably petite stature!" Looking down at the boy from her elevated height, tears were beginning to form in her eyes from how hard it was becoming not to laugh.

As the girl looked over the boy's head into the living room however, her demeanor quickly turned serious once again. Carefully slipping past the two at the entrance to the room, Resi made her way over to the sick boy laying on the couch. Her eyes filtered over all of the tense looking children that were present in the room. She thought about how late it was getting and let out a tiny nod to herself. "Excuse me everybody. I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but it is getting quite late. I believe that it would be best if we all retired for the night." Looking all of the children in the eyes, Resi smiled before gesturing to the unconscious boy and continuing. "This boy isn't going to get any better with all of us just crowding around him. Lets all head to our rooms and give the doctors some room to work." Clapping her hands together in finalization before walking over to the mentioned doctors.

Resi came to a stop at Oliver's side where he stood next to the twins. Reaching out she caught one of the petals fluttering out of the boy's hair before picking it up between two of her fingers and examining it. "Oliver, there is no reason to be so timid. I've told you before that you should be more confident with yourself, haven't I?" Smiling sweetly at the older boy she then turned to look at the other two boys. "I'm sure that Devon and Gabriel would be more then happy to have your help." She said with a reassuring smile, placing the boy's petal back into his hand.

"Speaking of help, do you two think that you'll need anything from the kitchen?" She asked while tilting her head slightly, ready to lend a hand if it was needed.

These people...get very easily distracted... Ash raised a brow. There was so much commotion, they were amazed someone didn't fire a confetti gun every time someone walked through the main door.

Not like there was much of a difference.

Then a young lady brought to their attention that it was good to go off to bed now.

Oh. I don't have anywhere to sleep. I just got here. I guess...I just sleep here? Their eyes started scanning the room. Surely once everyone scattered, this would be much easier, so they simply went and leaned against the wall.

At Oliver's question, Devon whirled around to grab at Oliver's shoulders, clutching the fabric of his shirt tightly in his hands as Gabriel continued to pack up, keeping his back faced towards the flowery boy and his face hidden from view. They ignored the sounds of Cecil talking with the Orange-headed newcomer and general commotion involving said Orange-headed newcomer, and the children surrounding Jaz.

"Yes, Oliver." Devon said gravely, an unnaturally serious look on his face, the expression in his eyes hidden behind his glasses and fringe. The air surrounding them was solemn as a grave, filled with tension. "Yes, there is something you can do for us. Immediately, and with great haste! For it is urgent indeed...

That you find us a camera!"
The tension broke as Devon looked up at Oliver with sparkly eyes, a large grin breaking out onto his lips. Behind him, Gabriel had broken out into laughter, making it evident that he had caught onto his brother's theatrical attempt at humor and went along with it. "Look at that guy! We need to take a picture of this!" Letting go of Oliver, Devon spread a hand out to reveal Jaz, Gabriel adding to the effect with jazz-hands as he knelt beside the couch with an equally large shit-eating grin on his face.

The effect was a bit like watching someone buried under a pile of cloth. Dressed in an ugly looking christmas sweater and surrounded by soft woollen toys the children had thoughtfully given him like sacrifices to the God of Sickness and Illnesses to the shrine-couch and a hot water bottle, Jaz's face was barely visible underneath all the hats jammed on his head. They were stacked on top of each other like building blocks, ending with a woollen white hat with heart designs everwhere that had a fluffy pink bobble on the top that was shaped like a heart, nearly blocking his eyes from view. This in addition with several blankets they'd placed on top of him as if they were trying to reenact a misguided version of Princess and the Pea meant that Jaz was literally covered head to toe. The girl's fire from earlier was still there, radiating heat, but they were surrounded in small bubbles that were a few feet on top of him, created by a boy who's ability could create any kind of bubbles.

It was overkill. It was also completely hilarious. They'd have to undo it later so that Jaz didn't overheat, but that could wait for after they took a picture. Clearly they weren't going to use it for blackmail - that would intend that the picture wasn't going to see the light of day, which it absolutely would.

Grinning, Devon and Gabriel looked at Oliver, making it absolutely certain that they were completely serious about taking a photo of this scene. Gabriel got distracted when Faye ran up to them, adding to the Jaz Shrine of Woollen and Cloth Goods with an item of her own.

"He'll be fine, Faye! He just needs a long rest. He'll probably wake up around the afternoon, if I'm any guess." He said cheerfully, still chuckling a bit. He smiled, patting Faye gently on the shoulder."Thanks for the offer, but I don't think we need it. Currently he's got more than enough blankets, but I think Ash could do with one. Why not try him?"

When Resi appeared and told Oliver to have more courage in himself and that they'd appreciate the help, Devon nodded. "That we would." He said merrily. "And she's right, have more courage in yourself, you're a good guy!"He said warmly, patting Oliver on the back. Then his grin grew wider, nearly maniacal. "But more importantly, camera! A camera to take a photo of this glorious scene before the time to take it is up!"

"Ah, Resi!" Gabriel turned around to face her, attracting her attention. "We don't need anything for now, but could you make something warm and liquidy for this guy in the morning? Like chicken soup or feeds or something. He won't be able to take anything truly solid for a while. Also, I think Ash needs to eat something, not too sure, haha." Gabriel shrugged, looking over at the other newcomer.

"Oi, Orange-head! Want something to eat?!" He yelled. "We could also check you over if you want!"

----------------------------------------

Dennis, meanwhile, had merely given a nod to accept Cecil's thanks after it'd registered and headed over to Rhys, joining him with the other kids. He tapped Rhys on the shoulder, tilting his head questioningly at him. What's up?

Faye Chalmers

As Faye peeked around the orange haired boy to check on the unconscious one. She noticed the orange one begin to sway a little. She automatically began to hold out her hand to steady him when he managed to steady himself

"No harm done." He brushed invisible dust from his coat turning his gaze towards the unconscious boy "That, and whatever you choose to do are none of my concern."

Faye once again felt her cheeks begin to burn as she got a good luck at his face. He was short that much was true, his skin was pale and his eyes were a sharp blue. He had slightly feminine features but his body frame and build obstructed that making him obviously male.

"a-" Faye opened her mouth to respond when suddenly a hissing approaching them. Stomping Willow glared at the new boy her height towering above him.

"No being mean!" Willow frowned at him.

Looking up at the white haired girl, Corvus lifted a single brow in response "Mean?"

Nodding firmly, the cat-girl bopped Corvus on the head, knocking his hat askew. "Mhm, mean."

As Corvus reached up to straighten up his hat, the white haired teen walked over to Faye and gently grasped Fayes Wrist. "Let's go check on him, meow?" Willow spoke to her.

Faye jumped a little at Willow's touch shocked by her confidence. Then as she looked towards Willow redness swelled up onto Faye's face as she noticed how naked Willow was.

"oh - um - yes - sure - okay" Faye tried to look anywhere but at Willow.

Oh my gosh it is so impolite to look!

Faye's thoughts screamed. She did not want to be rude, she mustn't look. She looked back towards the orange haired kid her eyes wide with shock as Willow lead her over to the unconscious boy. She saw Resi enter the room, with a slight smile Faye nodded to the girl. She had always enjoyed the food Resi made, it was wonderful.

"Excuse me Miss, but may I enter the room?" Resi spoke. Faye quickly tried to hold back her laughter however a slight chuckle escaped her lips at Resi's comment.

"oh dear" Faye mumbled with a smile as the orange haired boy began to retaliate. Apparently he had an issue with his height. Faye personally didn't understand why. She was about the same height and quite liked her shortness. It made it easier to hide.

It was then they reached the unconscious boy and Dev and Gab were talking to Dennis about getting a photo.

"He'll be fine, Faye! He just needs a long rest. He'll probably wake up around the afternoon, if I'm any guess." Gabriel said cheerfully, still chuckling a bit. He smiled, patting Faye gently on the shoulder. "Thanks for the offer, but I don't think we need it. Currently, he's got more than enough blankets, but I think Ash could do with one. Why not try him?"

Faye smiled back to him, she had always found the two twins to be amusing, they seemed to bring joy to the house. Curios Faye took at closer look at the boy relieved to hear he was okay. It was then she began to count the many items that had been piled on top of him

"He looks mummified!" Faye exclaimed first surprised but then she began to laugh. "I think a photo would be a splendid idea." She smiled up at the twins and Willow for a moment before quickly averting her gaze again having forgotten for a split second she was naked. "How about we add a cherry just to top him off? We could keep the photo as a keepsake to his first day here" she giggled.

Clutching her blanket she then headed over to Lisi and the first newcomer, he seemed quieter than the orange haired boy. Lisi was speaking with Cosmo so Faye carefully approaching him a little uncertain. "um - here" Faye held out the gray blanket towards him. "I think you could use this more than um - the boy over there" she indicated to the unconscious boy.

That's when she realised she didn't know the names of these new people. "I'm Faye" she hesitantly smiled. "Whats your's?" she said glancing over at the orange haired kid and the unconcious one at the same time. It was unsual to have so many newcomers all at once.
