Pixies, Winter's sort anyway, were very effected by their environment. Seasons could effect their magic, the colours of the woods they made their homes in could effect their looks, and feelings, emotions, and temperament of those around them could alter their mood. In fact, their very being could be altered if it was severe enough.

Winter was looking less white today, and more... Grey. Tinted slightly violet in some light. Everything about him was ever so slightly off, but the strangest thing about him was his height. He hadn't altered his potion at all, and yet today he'd taken his usual dose and found himself taller than usual. Five foot ten, to be exact. A whole inch taller than Finlay. Usually he'd have been delighted by such a strange and exciting occurrence, but not today. Not tonight.

Tonight he simply wandered the streets, looking less like whimsy and trouble, and more like a vicious creature from dark woods where mortals shouldn't wander. His clothes were no longer bright and cheerful, but were instead replaced with simple muted shades of grey and blue. Street lights flickered as he passed beneath them, and as he dragged his fingers along the brick wall of an abandoned shop, black vines seemed to creep out of the shadows, slinking along the wall and filling the cracks. It was dark enough that many might not notice them. Which was just as well, really.

As he reached the curb, the vines stopped, and Winter went still. A group of people passed him, laughing and smiling, and Winter felt a pang of something bitter and dark in his chest. A sharp stab of pain that perfectly aligned with a sudden crack of thunder and an unexpected mist of rain that began to trickle down, the drops growing fatter and then falling harder and harder.

The laughter faded as the group began to rush for cover, and Winter watched them, wanting to be pleased. Though it wasn't nearly as amusing as it should have been. As he wanted it to be. It felt so childish, so dull. All the things that had been fun to him, things that he'd enjoyed. Lately they meant nothing to him. His toys, his games, his wardrobe. They once had brought him joy, and now they offered nothing it seemed.

Eric had been on his way back towards his club from a meeting, and his steps slowed as he spotted the pixie, although there was something different about him. His colors were different, as was his scent, if only faintly. There was something more metallic, sharper, to him as a whole. Never mind that he was taller.

Hands in his pockets, Eric looked as harmless as he could, tall and broad as he was. He wasn't looking to impress, or intimidate. "You're different," he stated, in lieu of a hello.

"I tend to be," Eric replied, meeting the pixie's gaze without showing any reaction to the change in him, and the potential danger there.

"Your smell has changed," Eric confirmed, a small, amused smile on his lips from the pixie's description.

So different from vampires, who only ever became more themselves, it seemed.

"It's spicier," Eric answered, smile growing slightly. "With a bite."

From what the pixie had told him of his kind, and how young he was, Eric would be very surprised if he didn't change again, eventually. But that was neither here nor now. "Yes," he finally answered his original question, amused. "I like it."

"Let's see where the night takes us," Eric easily agreed, turning on his heels to go in the direction Winter had been headed. The Diamond didn't need him back right this second.

"I've never liked to limit myself," Eric answered simply, a small smile playing on his lips. Not a very reassuring smile. It was a totally normal topic, as far as he was concerned.

"I'd appreciate it if you refrained within the limits of London," Eric replied naturally. There was a chance some would blame vampires.

But he didn't sound particularly invested in the request; the Authority wouldn't come down on him to fix something done by a pixie, or so he believed. His life would simply be slightly easier if Winter kept that sort of thing out of London.

"Being dangerous is one of the pleasures of this life," Eric agreed. He liked the strength that came with that life in death Godric had given him.

Eric smiled slightly, just a small tick of his lips upwards. "I never really felt like prey."

Not until Godric loomed over him, having just killed his companions, and him on the brink of death, too weak to fight but wanting to do nothing but. He had felt like prey, for one minute. And then Godric had drawn him into his world.

"I chose my path," Eric answered, and glanced at the pixie walking beside him, "as you can choose yours."

"Whose hand are you feeling?" Eric asked.

Eric shrugged. "Tell Fate to fuck off, and choose your own path." It was what he had done to his religion, when he had embraced this new life instead.
