Hollydale Nights

A beautiful beach-side town in a vaguely Californian climate full of colorful characters and whacky hijinks! Though at night not everything is as it seems...

Sean looks at the triplets then at Vivienne and moves to extricate himself by heading towards the 'real' books.

"Giving shopping advice during the apocalypse," Sean muttered as he idly rolled a coin on his knuckles to lessen the urge to smoke, which he figured the proprietor wouldn't... sppreciate.

"That's..."

"That's a..."

"...a very odd way to put things," they finally say in unison.

"That soon?" They ask, still speaking in unison.

"Do you think we're in danger?"

They've started circling around Viv, regarding her curiously.

"Right now, no. I don't think so, but you aren't exactly dressed for this part of town either. There are dark souls that hunt during the day."

"Of course not." She looked a little confused for a moment.

"I'm the Chosen One, giant sword says so." She reached up back over her shoulder for Cal's hilt.

"Rains havoc on the social life too. Lost a girlfriend because of a mission. Anyway, are you sure I can't call you a cab, I'm sure someone looking for you." V motioned to the Sam's left hand(s).

"No, I think I can make my own way back..."

And with that, all three women break into an immense flock of crows, taking to the air and leaving Viv with three empty dresses and three pairs of shoes.

One crow remains behind for a moment, sitting among the discarded garments. It twitches it's head like crows do as it turns one of it's dark, beady eyes to Vivienne.

"Caw!" it says and somehow that one hoarse syllable carries meaning. Visions of a different world? Around her the world shimmers, dispersing into tiny floating squares and she can see a glimpse of snowy grounds, a mansion and a lighthouse in the distance before 'reality' settles back in with a strange flicker.

The crow takes to the air and follows the rest of the flock.

"The Beacon...lady...crow..." Vivienne whispered. She looked around the ground quickly, "...crack in the pavement, always some Earth pressing through." She thought as the need to find a bit of nature, any bit, grew. She needed to connect to it before the vision fully faded, for some reason.

As she looks about, she feels a strange weight settle into her back pocket.

"What? Back pocket...oh phone. HR! Answers. V's mind jumped back the the more "logical" and she reached for her phone, sending a quick text asking about raven mythology and triplets.

The response comes relatively quickly.
There's a whole slew of raven entities.
There's a whole slew of triune entities.
What does this have to do with the demon?

The header on the message indicated that it had become a group text.

Maybe, V.
Those two things in concert are pretty grim.
Unlikely that she'd be dealing with demons though.

V knelt at the clothing, carefully lifting one item then another looking for ID of any kind.

She can help.
I ...[deleted]We need her, I need to know who she could be.

A strange third party message appears in the text stream.

V looked at the text and turned the phone over in her hand, sure enough the tiny fairy sticker she'd stuck to the back wasn't there. This wasn't her phone, now that she was thinking about it she suddenly remembered tossing her phone in the alley.

I sort of tossed mine.
At the demon site.
No sticker on this one.

I'll let the guys know.


The whole situation was off and now HR was actually coming to her. She didn't even know where the Organization's actual offices were.

She quickly headed inside, not pausing as she moved down the shelves and quickly scratched the statue under it's chin.
