The Solstice was upon them. When the sun went down the magic began to swell, the veil between this world and the Other Side thin as vapor. Mortals could sense it, even, though they may not have a name for it. They gathered together, not realizing the animal instinct of safety in numbers.

But all around the city, from the dark parts, fae began to come together as well. Unseelie filled the city- boggarts and Red Caps and things unseen for many a year with bright eyes and sharp teeth. But they were tricksy, dangerous and malicious but no worse than they ever were. The real threat, the ever present danger this year, were the Milesian that crawled out of the sewers and tube tunnels to prowl they city. They were hunting tonight. They had eyes black and soulless, eyes too wide for their white, gaunt faces. Larger than their eyes were their mouth. The smile of needle fangs glinted in the street lights. Long arms ending with spidery, spindly fingers reached and clawed at passers by from the shadows.

There was a war in the city tonight and the nature of the foe, the Milesian, meant no bound mortal needed to be near any battle. Death would come to one or the other if a killing blow came down.

But there was hope. Seelie fae prowled the city as well, fighting for Light and Air. Even the Queen had seen fit to step through with her sword and shield. Such was the threat to the Fae way of life that the Milesian presented.

The longest day of the year dawned but the sunlight did nothing to frighten off the dark forces. The longest day of the year simply meant the things that went bump in the night were attacking in the light.




(Tag in, tag around! Open all week so check back. Have fun with your adventures. If you don't want any Milesian, there are plenty of Unseelie, too. Day or night, whichever works for you.)

"I've got my dagger, always," Fin replied. "And my magic- That's worth something, isn't it?"

"Right, of course. ...Must be date night," Fin muttered, looking unsure and then shifting into his fox form. It was easier like this, he'd found. His vision was sharper and it kept his magic charged up and at the ready. It only took a moment to change back after all.

How many so far? he asked, looking up at Will as he trotted at his side.

Are you hurt at all? I can heal you if you are, Fin reminded him, the fox letting out a soft whine of worry.

I will bite them the fox insisted, though the fae knew that was a silly thought.

I've encountered a few, Fin confessed, looking up at Will. They're much more unsettling than the fae that came for us before, aren't they?

Fin bounced along at Will's side, rushing to keep up with him.

So we fight them. We fight, and we win.

Fin nodded, then slowed to a stop and sniffed the air.

One is near, he said nervously.

Shifting back as they passed through a shadowy patch, Fin returned to his human form and drew his small, but effective, blade.

Fin wasn't half the fighter Will was, and he jumped back before throwing up a shield to give himself a moment to think. What should he do? What should he do...

finlay_flynn: (look left)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
"Then maybe we should run," Fin hissed, tensing and looking around. "Maybe we should run, Will."

finlay_flynn: (pensive or wtvr)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
Fin hated this, hated the fact that Will was so stubborn, hated that he felt guilted into staying too.

"Fine. ...Fine," Fin said softly. "We'll fight."

finlay_flynn: (ill)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
"No, I said I'd be by your side. I meant it," the younger fae replied. "If you're going to fight, I'm going to fight right at your side."

Fin didn't look so sure, and he glanced down at his dagger before glancing at Will's sword.

"I don't suppose you could make this bigger, could you?" he asked, nodding at the dagger.

finlay_flynn: (tilted right)
From: [personal profile] finlay_flynn
Fin felt like a dwarf compared to them all, and he offered an awkward wave.

"Um, hello," he said softly, moving to stand closer to Will, dragging the sword along. Did they know they were lovers? Did they know who he was? ...Did they care at all?
