Scene D Repurcussions

Bostonikov, Dirt City, 1936 to 39
Minor Event 8, Cambridge, May 17th

- Following the Butchers’ attack on Bostonikov that resulted in the destruction of the Lysfaenn, Lisabet De Lacey invited allies of Bostonikov to attend a wake, or perhaps party, to mourn the dead.

- Of particular note attending is a male Jay claiming to be Elsie. Investigation yields that he is in fact Elsie’s bartender… seemingly believing he is Elsie. Much confusion abounds.

- The Loon Isambard is reunited with his wife, violently.

- Pahl’Munn attends, with a gift for Alfie. Once assembled, the present turns out to be a pink Idea robot named Chemical Dependency, Chemmy for short. She loves to smoke Nightmare.

- Unsurprisingly, Pahl’Munn tells a very long story about the history of Winged and the Saurids’ origins. In exchange for Resources, Pahl’Munn sends Captain Peep and some others on a  Jaunt - preventing a mugger killing a fictional child’s parents, the group are successful.

- Other guests include Pablo’s betrothed Pippi, ex-MINITru operative Beta, and a Dove from the Pillars of Light.

- Uninvited, Crowley attends. Approached about his “magic”, Crowley teaches Whyam how to construct a magical circle of binding, protecting those inside. Later, Aveophage also attends uninvited, seemingly following her orders to hunt for Cats. No-one reacts well, attempting to take her down, but she keeps reforming. Whyam traps himself and her in the magic circle… and soon realizes what a bad idea that was. An idea is put forward that every Winged sacrifices a small amount of life to Aveophage to satisfy them, but no Kings agree. Crowley reprimands Whyam on that foolish use of power...
- A mystic lady dreamer returns to lead a Seance. Questions are asked to “The First Thing that Died”, but no good answers are retrieved - the “statues” needed to “fix the cage” have long been destroyed, and alternates must be sought.

- A familiar grey rabbit attends, drunk and lamenting his violent job of entertaining Dreamers. “Elsie” and Olora look after him, Olora even inviting him to stay at Bostonikov. Pendleton sang to imbue the Bunny’s Dreamer stories with traces of Despair, reminding his viewers of the finalitya nd despair of death, war, and huge ACME bombs...

- Captain Peep performs a ritual, and summons the Lost warrior, Coallus, Prince of Long Shadows. Using two keys, she unlocks the chains around his neck, causing explosions of blinding light - once she is done, he is seemingly freed from whatever servitude he was forced into. Unsure what to do next, he asks advice on what he should do - some think he should help the other innocent Lost, some ask him to “return” to the Parliament. He asks for time to think, and seemingly has a close relationship with Captain Peep.

- Alfie challenges Coallus to a fight. It is amazingly one-sided, with Coallus not only terrifying Alfie, but also seemingly immune to physical attacks. A blast of Shadowy fire destroys Alfies hammer, Henry the Oppressor, and Coallus is utterly shocked that he can hear Alfie’s hammer talking.

- Rosie, a riveter, comes looking for aid in investigating the Lysfaenn’s crash-site. A group assembles to investigate, but only Olora and “Elsie” get through. Their inability to fly the Duckfoot plane results in firing it’s crane rocket and damaging the Peace Ray. An Angry alfie manages to get in and eject “Elsie”. At Lysfaenn, they discover the survivors refuse to rejoin Bostonikov, believing that Bostonikov never cared for them, and that they think Bostonikov may have Cat connections. They collect fancy tools and rivet-guns from a  factory, and Alfie makes friends with a talking Factory named Trumpington, who they befriend by feeding him Chemmy’s Nightmare smokes. Rosie decides to stay behind, rebuild and bring hope to Lysfaenn.  

- Not long after, the Duckfoot plane is seen leaving towards the River - it returns in terrible shape, seemingly needing extensive repairs.
