Fairy!Ellie in Beacon Hills

Down in the forest, there is a tree. 

What's left of one, anyway. 

The Nemeton calls another supernatural creature to its town. 

The blood that drips onto it forms a circle.

Ellie feels the summon's tug, and decides to answer. Not much going on today anyway.

Permalink

There is a man carrying a body towards the tree trunk she stands on.

Permalink

She looks down at the bloody circle.

"How macabre. And sloppy. What are the bodies for?"

Permalink

He keeps walking towards her, stopping when he reaches the trunk. 

He places the body in his arms at the base. 

Permalink

"Hello? Summoner?"

Permalink

Nah.

He stares at her a bit, as if expecting her to move from the trunk of her own accord.

Permalink

Well, she certainly could, with bindings this- nonexistent, really? Huh. But that might be seen as a hostile action.

"Do you have a task for me or not?"

Permalink

Looks like his only response is to self-immolate. 

That sure is a man on fire. 

Permalink

She doesn't especially want to go back just yet. She removes the air from his immediate vicinity long enough to snuff the flames.

Permalink

He seems lightly charred and stares vacantly.

The corpses remain at her feet and his, blood soaking into the roots and the bark. 

Permalink


"Are you at all capable of speech?"

Permalink

Oh, look, he's lighting himself on fire again. 

Permalink

Whoosh away goes the air.

"Would you stop that."

Permalink

He lifts the body and tries putting it onto the pile of of corpses. 

His eyes flash orange.

Permalink

Fine. Whatever. Summoner doesn't want to talk, she doesn't have to stick around here. She takes off into the air, rising above the trees to get an idea of what the surrounding area looks like.

Permalink

There's a town, if she ventures further than the forest.

Permalink

Oh good, maybe she can find someone there to explain whatever theatrical production is occurring at the tree stump. It's still dark, so she skims across the treetops most of the way there, descending to ground level after the trees run out.

Permalink

As she approaches the edge of the woods, she flies over a burnt husk of a house, overgrown with vines.

Permalink

Perhaps the former home of Mysterious Repetitively Self-Immolating Man? Worth stopping to look at.

Permalink

Nothing too interesting, really. Some deep gouges across the walls from claws being raked across them, and not much intact furniture.

Permalink

Perhaps not, then. She doesn't recall him having any claws. Onwards.

Permalink

Townwards, then. 

Hospital, school, police station...

Residential areas, bowling alley, movie rentals...

There's nothing particularly interesting about this town, either.

Permalink

Movie rentals? What? Those were gone before she was even born.

Permalink

She can also see the school from here.

Seems like there's some sort of commotion. 

Permalink

Where there's people, there's a possibility of an explanation. To the school.
