All Hallows Eve (whoever you are, GET IN)

The swamp that is a fixture surrounding the battlefield. The swamp, like most, is quite full of trees, moss, and most notably leeches. There are some strange things that pop out of the waters; are you willing to brave into them?

"Leetle BLU Doktor!"

Perhaps this was inappropriate considering the circumstances, and maybe it was idiotic to dress up and go gallivanting out into RED territory without invitation, but it was Halloween! And although Bosko may not have really celebrated such a festivity very often, he eagerly did so when given the chance, and when he heard from one of the BLUs that there would be A Hallows eve shindig near RED, he quickly decided he would go. The older man was dressed like a cowboy; and when one had limited supplies and clothing similar to a cowpoke's own, nothing would have been better. Though the fake gun resting in the home made holster strapped to his belt with duck tape could have been a bit... misleading if wearing the enemy color.

The one eyed Russian ran through the Pyro and Soldier, completely ignorant of what could happen to him. All he knew was that he saw a little speck of BLU from where he was getting ready in his sniper post, and immediately he knew who it was. Bosko ran up to the slightly frightened medic and hugged him, before looking around at the group of REDs around them and offering a smile on his scarred face.

"Hallo to yous all! You all look very nice!"

When it became obvious the stranger through the trees wasn't on his team, Connal hunched forward slightly on his seat, digging the toes of his boots into the mud. The last time he had come across someone that wasn't on his team in the swamp... it didn't go so well. His pet/friend's behavior wasn't helping. This time was different, however. He had teammates. He had Jericho. And if he wasn't mistaken, the BLU was afraid of them. It looked like he was going to go quietly.

Then, however, someone he could only assume to be another BLU appeared, and the Pyro was more than a little surprised. He sat up straight again, and blinked once or twice, just staring at the two. A cowboy. How had he known there was going to be a party? Did he just happen to have that costume lying around? Not knowing what to do, he turned to Anton. Out of everyone present, the Spy had been at this base the longest (as far as he knew), so maybe he would have some idea on how they were supposed to handle this. Even if he might not be able to clearly communicate it.

(H-heya guys. ;w; Just gonna jump in here. Barthy wasn't in The Graveyard. Pretend he had a head injury or something :Y)

Bartholomäus loved Halloween. It was the only time of the year where he could dress up as much as he wanted to and not be looked at as if he were crazy. Though, with what he had the couple days before, all he could manage was a pair of cute black cat ears, a long fluffy tail, and a bit of black makeup for some whiskers and a nose. As well as a few orange and chocolate cupcakes. He had heard around the base somewhere that RED was having a Halloween bonfire, and even though he was scared to death about being a BLU on RED territory, his inner party monster kitten was calling, and he hadn't been to any type of party in aaaaages. Hopefully, he thought, perhaps if he'd just wear some jeans and a neutral black shirt, he could act like a RED newcomer. And if that plan didn't work, he knew Yuri at least. It was doubtful that anyone would go up against someone as large as him. And if all of this failed, there was the fact that it was against the rules to kill during a ceasefire. And if his failed plan back up plan failed, at least there was respawn. Maybe he shouldn't be thinking so much with his head injury..

He threw about a dozen cakes into two paper baggies, put on a cozy stripey scarf, and sneaky sneaked out the door. He could have sworn he saw Bosko heading out earlier. Perhaps he was going to the bonfire as well? He seemed the type to do so. "Ah, vell, zhat should just make zhings easier.." The more friends the better.

As he neared the location, he could definitely start to feel the warmth of the bonfire, as well as hearing Bosko's voice and perhaps Gerhard's? His steps slowed, and as he saw a silhouetted figure with an ax, they finally decelerated enough to a frozen stop. Fritz was finally aware of how cold it really was outside. His teeth clacked together as he shivered, too scared to move forward. "Maybe zhis vasn't such a g-g-good idea..."

Gerhard went from near-fleeing to paralyzed in shock as he abruptly tackled by a wayward Sniper. A FAMILIAR wayward Russian Sniper who was apparently trying to be American for the evening.
The TentaMedic hung rather limp in his teammate's arms for a few moments, his holographic feet hanging a good few inches off the ground while his hidden tentacles tried to grip onto the grass, then finally came to himself upon hearing another familiar voice, this one faint and more than a little scared.
Blinking in a rather dazed manner, the Austrian lifted a hand to wave, realizing quite abruptly that he was unable to breathe.
"Ah... B-Bosko-!"

Jericho growled low in his throat, bristling at the sudden appearance of a rather loud person and then the little quiet person, neither of which he recognized by either sight or smell, and by the way his Master was clinging, Connal didn't either. So they were very likely to be BLUs. And he wasn't supposed to like BLUs.
Of course, he was a bit smarter than his training, and he knew that neither BLU nor RED were inherently good or bad, that depended upon the individual person. Which was why he always took his cues from his Master. Because Master knew which ones needed to have their innards chewed on.

The Russian realized he was squeezing the life out of the poor, dear BLU medic, and he giggled lightly before gently setting him on the ground. 

"I ees sorry, Doktor...!" He laughed, rubbing the back of his neck. "You ees just very nice to hug! Ands I see you from my room! I not know you ees coming to-" 

Wait. What was that faint voice? 

The Russian turned his head around the REDs, completely unfazed by their look's as he set a single grey eye on Fritz. And the look on his face when he saw what the BLU baker was wearing; priceless. 

"Fritz! You ees so... So... Adorables!" He raced past the REDs, and he gave the kitty a soft hug, taking care not to suffocate him before noting the other's frozen form. With a giggle, he brought a hand under the German's knees and behind his back and gingerly picked him up bridal style as he walked back to Gerhard. 

"Look Gerhard! I find kitty medic!"

Somewhere in the swamp a bit ways off from the bonfire party, sat Rufus alone in the dark with only a small lantern to light the area he was in. The old observation deck that overlooked the river. Here he was, minding his own business as usual. The medical cloth blanket that covered him from hip to 'ankle' had gained a new, larger blood stain. In his frustrations and bitterness towards himself, the Medic slashed at his own tail in retaliation. Not a deep cut, but one to bleed a while. Now it was a scabbed mark on the pink dolphin flesh covered by the cloth.

Hanging the lantern on a tree branch, he looks off the railing before sighing to himself. A side bag hung off one of his wheelchair handles which he removes. It's revealed inside he carries two cloth napkins, a bag of crackers and biscuits... and several small cans of expensive seafood from canned Spannish oysters to sardines and anchovies to even a jar of caviar. With a small can opener, he opens them up one by one, placing them on the napkin placed on the railing like a small table. The medic removes a tiny fork from the sack, places the second napkin on his lap and begins to feast on his last bit of rations from home. As he does, he stares down at the black waters.. down at his own bitter reflection of himself.

"Happy birthday to me....." He frowns, before covering up his bitter loneliness with a mouthful of canned herring.

Well this was completely unexpected.

Poor James was completely dumbfounded as the huge..wait, cowboy?!...BLU Sniper ran past him. Was this how the teams acted during ceasefire? Tolerant? Down right...stupid?

He lowered his ax for the time being at any rate, knocking it against his leg as he watched the odd little scene in front of him. God. Two BLU Medics. How many fucking Medics were going to pop out of the woods, if that damn burly idiot of a Sniper wasn't there my god he'd...

..."Yhhu knnw wht? Ffhhukk thhhss." the appearance of the BLUs, and the damn second Medic...another fucking German from the looks of it...was too much. Maybe the rest of his team could tolerate filth around their fire, but he wasn't about to. And he was pretty sure the Solly wouldn't let him knock off a few heads. He put his ax over his shoulder and tromped off, mumbling to himself.

Gavin was only a ways off from the little bonfire now and forms of others surrounding the flames met his view. But that wasn't the only thing that caught his attention, ending up pausing where he was. Off to the side, deeper into the darkness of the swamp, he could see the barest hint of light flickering in the distance. It made him wonder if someone was there and, more importantly, why they weren't in the company of presumed friends. But then to each his own, he supposed.

Giving a slight glance to the campfire where everyone seemed collected, he reasoned he could join them later after satisfying his curiosity. He changed his direction, instead traveling away from the small get-together to where that single little light shone. As he got closer, the figure or someone in a wheelchair appeared to him, though he couldn't see a face, approaching from behind.

He would have gladly walked right up, but the smell of sardines made him stop a few paces away. He wrinkled his nose a bit at the smell, always staying far away from any type of fishy food due to allergies. It was rare for him to even stay in the same room where it was being cooked, never mind actually eating it. But he moved closer either way, not willing to let the mere smell deter him.

“Hey there," he said with a smile, always the friendly type.

"Yhhu knnw wht? Ffhhukk thhhss."

Those were the last words Josif heard from the grumpy Pyro that night, and perhaps for the better. Josif had at least been correct about the teams not separating the party people. But now everyone on RED, including himself, was getting anxious. While the ceasefire was still in effect, it didn't give much right for these BLUs to be here. Even if they could all get along, friendships and alliances were not allowed between either teams.

...Or was that for long-standing friendships? Josif was still startled from the surge of opposing members, so it was hard to say or do anything. He finally decided for a bit of team discussion. Josif rushed over to the remaining Pyro and said in a hushed voice, "They all heard about the party, I guess, but should we let them stay? I don't think it will hurt our team's standings in the long run, but some of our teammates may deject it anyways. What do you think?"

Glancing around quickly, Josif spied a miniscule light near the docks. "I bet I can fetch some other, more willing teammates if you want to. Your call."

"I-It ist alright, Bosko..."
The Medic wobbled a little where he stood, feeling rather woozy from the combination of shock and adrenaline and temporary lack of air as he grabbed onto a nearby tree. His holographic legs kept up their facade decently enough, helped by the dim lighting, though his left boot seemed to be having a little trouble, warping slightly and flickering a bit.
Inhaling a deep breath to compose himself, Gerhard straightened just in time to see Bosko come trundling back with...
"Fritz? Was... Was are you vearing?"
Not that it wasn't kind of cute and it really fit the shy Medic's personality, but- Really?

Jericho barked, snapping his teeth and growling at the Soldier before his nose told him who it was, promptly shutting up and huffing crossly, his wings twitching irritably. He didn't like this, not one bit. There were strangers on his turf, one of which he couldn't smell, his Master was nervous and WHY COULDN'T HE SMELL THAT BLU?!!

"The hell you askin' me for?" Connal replied without thinking, pulling Jericho a little closer to himself. The chimera wasn't normally that jumpy, so something about the BLUs must really have been bothering him. "I 'unno what to do, but I guess so long as they don' try ta pull anythin' we gotta let 'em be... Does the cat-guy have bags?" Now he was curious. They didn't seem like they were going to try to attack them, but at least two out of the three looked ready to party.

Were they really willing to risk getting killed, maybe being accused of befriending their enemy, for one Halloween party? Would he be able to do the same? The Pyro wasn't sure, and wondered if that meant they were more brave than he was. The cowboy, at least, didn't seem to care one bit that he was surrounded by REDs, and here he was, kicking at the mud like a nervous kid at just a few BLUs.

Josif shrugged. He had wanted Connal's opinion before doing anything, but there still wasn't much they could do. Restating his other option, Josif said, "I think there's a couple of our team down by that dock. If you can hold the fort for a bit..." Josif internally groaned at his own pun, "...then I might be able to bring them over. Whether or not they'll like this is another matter."

"In the meantime, why don't you try welcoming them? Offer a drink, play some music, see if they're really here for the party." Josif stole a glance at the BLUs. "If they are, then then we've nothing to worry about. If they're not..." Josif motioned to a sword he had hidden underneath his robing, "...then just shout."

Bosko Smiled at seeing the REDs gather together and speak amongst one another. Maybe they were planning something special for the BLUs! Or maybe deciding what candy to bring! Or even-

"Vhat?" Bosko muttered to himself at seeing that little light in the distance, and he squinted his only eye with a pout before looking to the two medic's near him. What was that thing? Could it have been a ghost? A spirit of the swamp? It would be the perfect time for one! Maybe they could even all make friends with it! Oh, the REDs would be overjoyed if an actual ghost came to the party!

"I vill be right back!" He told the two little Germans with a reassuring smile, and he kissed Fritz on his forehead with a chuckle before gently setting the medic on the ground. He puffed out his chest, and with a deep breathe, he ran head first for that light, uncaring of the odd looks he received for his idiotic actions, a hand pressed securely to the top of his head to keep his hat from flying off.

"Ghooost!"

He then stopped halfway.

Maybe one of the little medics would like to come and help him in welcoming the ghost!

The Russian quickly ran back, nearly tripping over himself as he came up to the two. "Leetle doktors! You vants come say hi to ghosts?"

For a long moment, Gerhard just stared, his expression blank as he watched the Sniper run off, wondering if maybe there had been a mix up in the paperwork and the Russian was really in his 20's and a Scout, rather than a marksman who was nearly 70 (at least, that's what his records said, he sure didn't look that old).
Then Bosko came scrambling back, babbling about ghosts, of all things, and the Medic did the only thing he could do:
Slap a palm to his face and sigh.
"Bosko..."

The chimera whimpered, his ears pinned back as he looked up to Connal, his clawed hands gripping at the Pyro's rubber-clothed leg. First a BLU he couldn't smell, and now one of them was being loud enough to make his ears hurt.

Just as he was about to sink his teeth into a sardine placed on a cracker, Rufus tenses up in surprise at the sudden appearance of a voice. He whips his head around, spotting the RED Sniper. The man sneers, this was suppose to be his alone time! Everyone was gonna make themselves merry fools of themselves at some sort of 'Halloween" party, not bother him.

"Ugh.... Vhat do you vant?" He snaps. "I'm a little busy at ze moment, so unless you are bleeding out, have bones sticking out of skin or on ze verge of illness breakdown, I am on mein offtime! Go pester ze ozher Medic!" He states looking back to his meal and pops the cracker and sardine in his mouth. His perfect, lonely, bitter night just went even more sour.

(So many things going on D:)

"Ehhhh, h-hey BoskooooOOOO!" Fritz, frightened by the sudden gesture and afraid of falling, instinctly wrapped his arms around Bosko's neck as he was hoisted up into the cute and iconic little carry. He should be getting used to Bosko's constant hugging and lifting by now, but it was still pretty surprising anyway. A small blush started to creep on his face after he realized what his friend had called him, adorable AND a "kitty medic". His face reddened even more so when Gerhard had asked about his costume. "G-Gerhard I've always dressed up on H-Halloween..." He couldn't think of any better explanation, other than having to explain that he snuck out. "Ugh vhy did I do zhis.." He thought, embarrassed by everything. His outfit, his face, his cupcakes. Feeling cold, frightened, and abashed, he hugged himself tighter in Bosko's grasp.

So many things were going on right now. It was cold, he was surrounded by REDs, his sniper friend was holding him as if he were a girl, and then the sudden and loud barking coming from the other side of the fire. Fritz didn't know what was going on anymore. He peeked out from hiding his face in the security of Bosko's arms and noticed a creature, too large for a dog, on the other side. Oh nononono he didn't like this one bit. And then all of a sudden.... Bosko just... Just kissed him. "V-Vhat?" Oh dear, everything was so confusing right now. Fritz dropped a bag of his cupcakes, but thankfully, only two fell out onto dirty, dirty floor.

After Fritz had been set back on solid ground, he suddenly felt so much colder. And although he was completely embarrassed about being kissed and was so very flustered with everything else, he kind of missed the warmth of being held. He started shivering again. And.. Now ghosts?? What in the world was going to happen next..

"Vhat?"

Bosko gave Gerhard a befuddled expression, head cocked to the side rather comically as he saw him slap a hand to his face. He gave a meek shrug, and as he looked to Fritz for his answer, he couldn't hold back a smile. He was such a nice, adorable little medic...!

"Aw, ees yous okay, Kitty Doktor?" He asked with a giggle, bringing him in his arms to warm him up as he nuzzled the top of his head with a smile. "You looks so cold! And confuseds!"

Gavin ended up pausing as the Medic ended up looking over at him and snapped at him right off the bat. In a moment of silence, he watched the other pop a fishy cracker in his mouth, somewhat glancing him over. The German's attitude didn't put him off in the least. If anything, it just interested him more, in a way. And despite the words demanding solitude, he didn't budge from his spot.

“Tsk. Tha's not very nice,” he said with a bit of a chuckle, more to himself than anything. He ended up moving closer, standing beside the wheelchair the other was in and looking down beyond the deck toward the river. He contemplated taking up a spot there, dangling his feet over the edge, but he didn't bother. It would have been a pain to pull himself back up again, and he didn't figure he'd be there long either way; the Medic seeming as unsocial as he did, he didn't expect the two of them to have a friendly little howdy-doo chat. Though it didn't stop him from trying anyway, waiting for the other to finish chewing before he said anything else.

“What are ye doin' out here all by yer lonesome?” Gavin asked, nodding over his shoulder toward where there were others by the fire, “Don' fancy joinin' in? Or do ye jus' not like th' holiday?”

"What the hell is even going on anymore?" Connal had to wonder. He tried to listen to Josif and keep his eyes on the BLUs at the same time, but it was proving to be a bit much. Especially when the cowboy started running around and shouting about ghosts. The Pyro looked back in time to see the sword, and nodded. Jericho would probably take care of things before this guy had a chance to make it back, but it was nice to have extra backup. "Radical costume, by the way."

Realizing he still had the cassette tape Anton picked in his hand, the Michigander reached back down for his boombox. Connal slid the tape in, gave his chimera a pat on the head to show he wouldn't forget to keep it down, and pressed play. Van Halen's cover of You Really Got Me happened to be the first song on the mixed tape, which instantly put a smile on the metalhead's face. A smile that grew just a bit wider for just a moment when he noticed the cupcakes next to the fallen bag.

Gerhard just shook his head, sorely tempted to turn to the tree next to him and see if he could smack his head hard enough to pass out.
This night had just gone from tense to absolutely ludicrous.

Jericho whined hoarsely, shifting over to lower his head onto his hands, curled loosely around his Master and tucked close to the man's side. He smiled a little at the affectionate pat, remembering just why he was so lucky to have Connal as his Master, but was quick to turn his attention back to the BLUs, though an ear flicked back at the music. Huh, this one wasn't so bad...
