Epimetheus wasn't like Prometheus when it came to powers and magic. He had power, sure, but he'd never mastered it the way his twin had. He hadn't needed to, really. He'd never been trapped in the mortal realm after all, he came and went as he pleased- Using portals. ...Portals he generally had others open for him. However, since he was traveling alone lately, the only way to pop back home for a bit was to crack one open himself, using the only spell he knew to do so. A very blunt spell, honestly, that Prometheus had scolded him time and time again for using. 'Spells like this aren't like garage door openers, you know. They don't just open one portal, they'll open any in range,' the other titan had scolded, though all Epimetheus had said in return was 'What's a garage door?'.

That had been some time ago, but Epimetheus had used the spell many times since. He'd never noticed any ill effects personally, and didn't have the foresight to see how it might go a bit wrong. So this morning when he'd popped home to see Pandora, he'd gone on as he always did- Oblivious to any trouble he might be causing elsewhere.

(Portals are opening and closing all over london, letting things into the city from other places, times, ect. The sky is the limit here! Have anything you want slip through into the city- Or maybe let your pups go stumbling through one themselves? The choice is yours! This post will be open all next week, so tag in and then check back often! As always, we trust you guys not to go too crazy with this power, but please, no wrecking the city or doing anything that might cause gamewide issues without checking in with us first. Also, like any plot, feel free to have your pups sit out or be completely oblivious to the chaos. Assume that Torchwood and the like are keeping it out of the papers. ;) Have fun!)

"That doesn't fill me with dread or anything," Jack quipped dryly. Again he flipped open his strap and the energy readings were just as strong.

"We should look into this. If other things or people are coming through it could be dangerous for, well, everyone."

"Where do we even start?" Val asked, looking over at Jack's wrist strap.

Jack tapped the screen to zoom out a little.

"There," he said. "Around the corner and down the street. Come on."

He sounded so certain, so sure. He took off, long strides making his coat flutter behind him. He simply expected Val to follow.

It had become second nature to follow when Jack ran, and he was right on the other man's heels as they made their way to the next portal.

"Have you ever seen something like this before?" he asked.

"Sort of," he said. "There's a rift in Cardiff and fractures open up sometimes. But I've never even heard of it happening in London. We've got to get to the bottom of this."

"What about multiple rifts opening all at once? Anything familiar about that?" Val pressed.

It always felt like Jack knew more than he was willing to share, and Val couldn't help but always push and push for more.

Jack was quiet for a moment.

"Yeah, actually," he finally replied. "One time the rift in Cardiff was forced open. Cracks opened all over the city. It was chaos...and foreshadowed the release of a monster that had been imprisoned in the rift for eons."

"Well that's... That's distressing. You aren't kind of worried that could be happening right now?" Val asked, a hint of anger in his tone. He didn't understand why he had to drag this sort of information out of Jack.

"That can't be it! There's no rift in London, " he insisted. "There's got to be another cause."

"Portals like this don't just pop open, Jack. We should know," Val replied, glancing over at the other man and quietly skirting around what they both knew to be true- That they'd been trying and failing to crack open a portal for months now.

"Exactly right. Which is why this is so troubling," he said. Jack slowed and his strap beeped softly. He looked around to see if there was anything obvious, but he didn't see anything.

He could smell something, though. Just around the corner it smelled like a flower market, the sort that had been popular in the streets of London more than a century ago.

"Let's...try over here," he said slowly, leading Val toward the anomaly.

Val followed after him, frowning as the scent hit his wolf like nose.

"What is that?" he asked, sniffing at the air. "There's no market today..."

They rounded the corner and though there was no market, there was a vendors cart laden with spring flowers. The scent was so strong it was overpowering.

"That's not something you see everyday," Jack said. He figured surely there could be no threat from flowers, and he moved in to select one.

"I always liked violets," he said, but then something bright and sweet exploded in his senses and Jacks eyes glazed over.

"Something smells off about these," Val murmured, unaware of whatever was currently attacking Jack's senses.

The violets fell from Jack's hand and he turned to look vacantly at Val.

"There's nothing here. We can go," he said in a flat, automatic tone. "But first, smell the tulips, Val..."

Taking a step back, Val frowned and made a point of keeping some distance between them.

"I'll pass. ...Are you feeling alright, Jack?" he asked calmly, gaze drifting to the flowers, looking for some sign of what was going on.

Date: 2017-05-13 02:15 am (UTC)

"The tulips, Val," he said dreamily. He plucked a purple bloom and held it out. The scent was sickeningly sweet and even in his daze Jack could only think of rotting flesh.

From: [personal profile] hollow_moon
Val could already smell it, and he pushed Jack's hand away before taking another step back.

"Stop," he said calmly, his gaze flickering over Jack as he tried to think. If it was the scent that had Jack looking glassy eyed and braindead, then maybe the answer was to cover that scent. It was just a guess, but it was something, and he pulled a pack of matches from his pocket and struck one- Only to immediately snuff it out and hold it under Jack's nose.

The hot, acrid smell of charcoal and sulfer jerked him out of his fugue. He dropped the tulip.

"What happened?" Jack asked, torn between running and fighting.

"I don't know, something to do with the flowers though- One good sniff and you were like a bloody zombie," Val replied, raking his fingers through his hair.

"Then we've got to get it out of here before it affects anyone else," he said. "Lets find the nearest portal and push it through."

"Not to be a spoil sport, but perhaps we should dispose of it permanently, rather than shove it back into the universe?" Val suggested.

"Good idea, but we need to do something now," Jack replied. "And who knows? Maybe where it came from this is normal. Come on. Find me that fracture."

Date: 2017-05-14 06:16 pm (UTC)
hollow_moon: (oh?)
From: [personal profile] hollow_moon
Val frowned a little, but didn't argue.

"Alright," he sighed, "It'll take a moment though, I still haven't mastered this."

Jack nodded. This was no exact science, even with the best equipment. As Val worked the device, he checked his own wrist strap, trying to get any specific reading. But there was just too much. Whatever was happening it was all over the city.

They needed to contain this.
