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!)

"I slipped off to another world without him, got up to trouble, and had an adventure," Felix explained, leading the way to the rather posh, modern building's electronically locked back door. The small electronic eye flicked from red to green when Felix approached. He didn't even have to gesture to unlock that door any longer (and the cameras never noticed a thing). "Wouldn't you be cross?"

"Maybe- But more because Will makes a habit of trying to protect me, and I don't need protecting," Fin replied honestly, shrugging one shoulder and trying not to be too nosey as he observed Felix's gesture-less magic.

Felix opened the back door and waved Fin inside the well-appointed building, then began the journey through residents-only amenity facilities (the faint scent of chlorine indicated a pool somewhere nearby, and down a hall came a clack of billiard balls and murmur of conversation) toward the elevators.

"Clearly," he agreed, casually waving open doors and lighting the elevator buttons hands-free. He did this every day and no one noticed. Modern preoccupation was such a lovely thing. "Shall I testify to Will for you on that matter?"

"I wouldn't object to that," Fin replied. "Honestly, I'd just be thrilled to know he was being social. Ever since I left, and even since I returned to him... Well, people take sides, you know? Not many took his," he finished quietly, a hint of guilt in his tone. As though he felt that was his fault.

Quickly, he changed the subject. "Is that pool water I smell? God, I've not been swimming in forever. I used to think that was my future, you know. Olympic swimmer."

"Really." It wasn't quite a question, but an expression of mild surprise. "In... school?"

Felix supposed that was the sort of thing people dreamed about in their school years. He didn't know if anyone had ever put two and two together and come to realize that Felix had skipped, without record, the years between 'exploited tween prostitute' and 'magical society darling.'

The elevator swept them up to a higher floor, short of the penthouse but high enough for a lovely view, and for the space of that ride, everything seemed quiet and terribly normal.

"Mmm," Fin nodded. "I was quite good, I think. I had excellent times... Then my heart tried to give out on me, and, well- The rest is a long and tangled mess, isn't it?"

It wasn't really a question though, and he fell silent as they reached what he assumed was Felix and Shannon's flat.
