It was happening more often now. The air shivered with the dark magic that was flowing more and more freely through London, leaving all it touched with a feeling of unease, and promising nasty nightmares and troubles to all who felt it in their bones.

Tonight dark creatures came slithering out of the sewers. Ghosts of the dead with cruel hearts, shadows of villains and wicked souls... They were welcomed into London with open arms, appearing and vanishing, and causing pain wherever they wandered.

Tonight the people of london caught a glimpse of the danger coming. A danger that was making itself more and more known as the year continued on.

(OTA! Wild magic is back, though it doesn't have to be evil, it can just be pestering or annoying if you'd rather this time around. You are only limited by your imagination (and what you care to make your pups suffer through). The only thing of note is that for those who are sensitive to magic, it will seem even stronger than the last time.)

For a beat, Felix just stared at Prometheus without comprehension. What had he said? A second later, his brain managed to replay his own words for him, and he shook his head faintly. "I... I don't know why I said that. I'm not... feeling quite myself."

With his magic gone quiet and exhausted, he felt strangely disconnected from reality. When he tried to focus on Prometheus, the other man looked... strange. Felix frowned as he tried to focus on him and his vision refused to resolve. "I can't... too many faces."

Prometheus hesitated, but after a moment put his tea down and got to his feet. He couldn't fix whatever was wrong with the wizard, but he could help centre him. ...Maybe.

Well, he could give it a go anyway.

"Shh, it's alright petal," he soothed, crouching down in front of him to get a better look at those odd eyes. "Try and focus on me, just me as I am right now in this form."

He didn't touch Felix, he didn't think that would be well received, but he opened himself up in a way he didn't often these days. His body language was welcoming, inviting the man to touch if he needed to. ...Though he did find himself wondering if he ought to call Robin. He knew the wizard well after all.

Had Felix not already felt rather unreal and disconnected, he might have been entirely flummoxed regarding how to respond to such patience and kindness. He wasn't accustomed to it, and yet, Prometheus' calm tone worked remarkably well. Felix's struggling attempts to speak drifted off into understanding quiet, and he closed his eyes for a long moment before trying to open them and focus on Prometheus again.

It wasn't easy. It felt like every face he'd known -- and many he hadn't -- of Prometheus' was trying to overlay itself on all of the others, all at once. This wasn't magic. This was something in Felix's head that he'd never experienced before.

"You didn't choose them all," Felix mused abstractly, but whether that was something he knew from Prometheus himself, from Robin, or from no source at all, he couldn't say.

"Oh, I don't think I picked any of them, petal. I don't think it works that way," the titan assured him, keeping his voice low and soft. "Or maybe I did pick some, subconsciously. I'll likely never know."

Bit by bit, Felix's mismatched eyes seemed to clear and were no longer trying to cross against his will. He was silent for a long time, but when he finally appeared able to focus on Prometheus, he asked quietly, "Am I losing my mind?"

"Perhaps," Prometheus replied, his head cocking slightly to the left as he considered the wizard. "There are worse fates though, petal. Of that I'm certain."

Rising to his feet, the titan moved to sit beside the wizard.

"Minds are funny things though. Sometimes when you think they're rotting, they're simply fermenting."

"I don't know that I want my mind to turn into wine," Felix murmured absently, watching Prometheus as he moved. His hands were still wrapped around his cup, and he sipped from it occasionally, but his attention shifted between Prometheus' face and the other man's hands, watchful. He didn't object when Prometheus sat next to him, but neither did he move any closer.

"I can't go mad. Shannon would leave me."

"Your lover?" the titan assumed, making no move to touch or spook the wounded creature. "Oh, dove, in my experience it takes far more than madness to end a relationship. In fact, sometimes a bit of madness makes love a bit more fun. ...Well, unless you get homicidal. That can put an end to things quickly."

Felix's eyes widened with horror. "I'm not... I won't kill anyone," he whispered, somehow managing to sound as if Prometheus had just suggested that he ought to. "I can't. I'm... bound. Cabaline oaths."

He could see he'd ruffled some feathers unintentionally, and so the titan fell silent for a moment. Prometheus was many things, but he wasn't cruel. Devious on occasion, sure, but never intentionally unkind- Not when he was in control of himself.

"You need to relax," he said finally, hesitating before offering something a bit more personal. Prometheus wasn't one to open up, not to mortals. He took pride in being a teacher, a protector, and that meant being a bit above it all. ...On this occasion, however, he presented himself as a peer, of sorts.

"At my most unstable, in my moments of clarity I meditate. It's hard, near impossible sometimes, but it helps. If you like, I can put some music on, and you can just sit here a while. I only intended to paint this evening, you'll not be in the way if you linger."

That brought about a flood of near instant relief that practically seemed to melt the tension out of Felix's body. Yes, that was familiar. That was something he understood.

Slowly, Felix nodded. "Someone once taught me... you meditate on the image of an egg. You let the egg hatch, and what comes from it gives you insight to what troubles your mind. Do you know that one?"

"I do. I do," Prometheus nodded. "Or a flower blooming, I like that one also," he said softly.

"I always get the snake," Felix explained, somewhat dreamily. "I wanted the lion, you know. I always hoped for the lion. But lions don't come out of eggs. I don't think I could ever quite get past that part."

Prometheus reached out, nearly stroking Felix's hair- Then stopped himself and drew his hand back.

"You're a sensible man. Pragmatic," he said placidly.

This time, Felix didn't appear to notice the near-touch. He was thinking about the snake. But when Prometheus said that, his eyes focused again on the titan's face. "Not right now, I'm not," he observed solemnly.

"No, but we all have our bad days. ...Well, I do anyway. Though they're less days, more like decades," the titan confessed, still itching to touch but managing to resist. He just wanted to soothe the poor mortal, to return him to his usual peacock self. ...He just wasn't sure how.

"I don't have decades," Felix sighed, sounding wistful. He was starting to list to one side, drifting toward Prometheus without realizing it. "I don't have time to go mad."

Felix tilted, and Prometheus' resolve crumbled a little as he stroked the wizard's hair.

"We don't always have a choice, petal. I don't think you need worry though, you'll be alright. You're just tired, I think. You should rest."

"Yes," Felix mumbled, sounding almost obedient as he closed his eyes and rested his head back. There was a warm hand on his hair, and he wasn't sure where that had come from. It wasn't terrible, and he was simply too tired to pull away.

"... Shannon," he murmured after a few moments. "He'll collect me... I think."

"Will he?" The titan asked, appearing a bit doubtful about that. He didn't know how to contact this Shannon person, but perhaps the puck did. Slowly, he drew away and sent a text to Robin.

Found your wizard in the street.
He's gone all strange. (NOT my fault)
We're at my flat. 😕

Robin was at the club when he saw the text. Your wizard. Well, there was really only one reasonable answer to who that could be. And Felix and Prometheus together, particularly with someone "strange," just seemed like a bad idea.

I'll be there soon

Also, when had Prometheus started using emoji?

He ended his conversation with the bartender he'd been simultaneously flirting with and chastising for poor performance, and headed out to his car to head over to Prometheus' place.

Prometheus replied with a string of emoji that looked like some sort of undecipherable hieroglyph-esc rambling, then returned his attention to the little phoenix perched on his sofa.

"Robin's on his way," he said, though he wasn't sure Felix was listening.

It was only about ten minutes before Robin arrived, just letting himself in.

He looked over and saw Felix. Then glanced at Prometheus. "You promise it's not your fault?" he said, but sounded vaguely teasing.

Felix had been drifting, murmuring nonsensically to Prometheus, seeming content with the titan's reassurances. His head rested against the back of the sofa, and he appeared to have otherwise molded his skinny self to the shape of the furniture.

When he heard a familiar voice, Felix blinked his eyes open, and stared. In that moment he understood that everything Robin had ever said about himself was true. The puck was a creature as ancient as the world, made of pure life. Where Prometheus had been a symphony of faces, Robin was... eternal. Felix stared like he'd never seen his friend before, and he wondered if he'd just never really looked.

"I stopped him from cracking his skull open on the pavement. I didn't do any damage, I prevented it. ...Probably," the titan insisted, before pausing and looking unsure.

"I did briefly toy with time and space to get him here and off the street, but he was definitely wobbly before that."
