No words now, only hudda (Connal, open to other REDs)

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?

((BACK DATED BACK DATED BACK DATED))

Oh.

This was disappointing.

The salamander rediscovered the spot where Josif had gone bananas and decided James and Jericho needed some new ventilation holes. He didn't expect much, to be honest, but the books had disintegrated to unrecognizable mush. Some of the fancier ones with cardboard covers held on, but they quickly fell apart upon being picked up. It was a damn shame...they were so sopping wet and rotten they might not even catch, even with an acellerant.

Not like that was going to stop the slippery arsonist.

Wet logs. Tons of sticks. Newspaper. The odd dead possum or two. It wouldn't be that spectacular, but it might burn slowly. Last a long time. He set the concoction alight, watching the newspaper catch and glow. No. This was stupid. This wasn't working.

There was a trick he picked up from a Sniper/Pyro tag team back at one of the Payload bases. It was rediculously dangerous, but fun. A mason jar of gasoline. He tossed it up in the air a few times to himself before working up the courage to toss it on the slow fire. Wait, maybe this was kind of stu---

The resulting explosion sent a minor mushroom cloud up through the swamp and the slippery aronist to the ground with his hands over his head. Debris rained down in flaming chunks. It was fortunate the rest of the swamp and its trees were too damp to catch aflame or the whole place could have gone up. Shaken, James stood. Well. The fire was truly alive now at any rate. This was a victory.

He hoisted his flamethrower overhead and shook it, laughing.

Jericho knew there was something up the moment he started smelling burning hair.
It was a decidedly unpleasant smell he really did not like, and it woke him up from a sound sleep in search of the source. Upon making it to the boarded up window he'd leapt out of not-so-long ago to try and save Connal from an untimely death (and wound up dead himself for his trouble), he caught a glimpse of something flickering and a lot of smoke and-
HOLY SHIT!

The chimera bolted back down the hall, howling in an abrupt bout of panic as he sought out his Master, all but tackling the metal head out of bed.

Most people, upon being tackled out of bed, would probably swear up a storm, or panic a little bit until they realized what was going on. Probably get a little angry at whoever jumped on them.

Connal, on the other hand, just rolled out of the bed and slammed into the floor like a sack of potatoes. After a second or two, he pushed his front half off of the floor, having realized he was no longer asleep. He looked around, wondering why he wasn't in bed, until he spotted his hybrid friend. "Oh, hey, Jer..." he greeted, then yawned. "Where's th' fire...?" he joked, pushing himself into a sitting position. It was then he realized he actually could smell something burning. "...Holy shit, there's really a fire, isn' there?"

Jericho didn't bother to answer, busy being spooked and shaken from the loud explosion of fire and glass that had temporarily lit up the sky. It wasn't like he hadn't heard explosions before, but usually there was a weapon involved that he could smell and take note of and thus prepare himself for the sharp noise that made his ears ring and his head hurt. This one, though, had come out of freaking nowhere, catching the chimera completely by surprise.
He eventually managed to collect himself, though he still shivered a bit as he pried his claws out of the floorboards.

"Oh, righteous!" Connal exclaimed, jumping up and getting dressed. Even if it didn't have anything to do with James, there was still a likely large fire going on. He grabbed the hazmat suit out from under the bed, and added, "You might wanna stay back here for this one, Jer. I'll be safe from any kind of fire while I wear this, it's probably gonna be kinda loud if it's way big, and I promise I'll stay away from the water." Maybe he should go check the bulletin board before he left. The last time James wanted to burn shit with him, he left a message saying so. "Is, uh, that cool with ya?"

"Watch from window. I'll be fine."
Jericho attempted a smile to reassure his Master. He knew it had been a long time since the ginger had been able to have any real fun of his own, and fire had never been his forte, so...
Hey, whatever made his Master happy and out of trouble was fine with him.

"Cool," Connal replied, with a grin. "See ya later, buddy."

The redhead, suit donned and mask in hand, jogged to the bulletin board, where sure enough there was a message from James. A good thing he had checked, too, because otherwise he probably wouldn't have gathered some booze. After a quick return trip to the barracks to get his duffel bag (and give a quick pat to Jericho's head), Connal just shoveled a couple of handfuls of the one thing they never seemed to run too low on. Shame they didn't have straws, then they could have left their masks on. Being some kind of frog-thing probably made the heat even worse for the hybrid Pyro.

Finding the spot was a lot easier this time around, since there was already a fire going. One look, and Connal wished he would have brought his boombox along. Too bad he was on his last set of batteries. "James, hey!" he called out, spotting the salamander. The Michigander waved, then held up the duffel and pointed at it. "I brought the booze like ya said!"

mixing alcohol and pyros is good plan i promise

Postby Tentacles » Tue Jul 10, 2012 9:54 am

It was pretty weird seeing Connal without his perpetual dog man hip accessory, but the salamander imagined this sort of thing wasn't exactly Jericho's speed. Upon the larger Pyro's arrival onto the scene, he hoisted up his thrower again with one hand and bellowed some incomprehensible greeting and approval at the offering of alcohol. The slippery arsonist was already intoxicated in a completely different way.

He was also feeling like he had done something a bit rude by starting the fire without waiting for Connal (though didn't it make it easier to find? a paradox). Amends had to be made. The fire-thrilled Pyro waddled over to the redhead, muttering something in huddah before producing another mason jar. Fortunately not full of piss.

Again, the muttering was utterly incomprehensible but the inclination seemed clear. He was holding out the jar of gasoline in one hand, and when he was finished with whatever muffled explaination he offered he gave a thumbs up with the other.

It was kind of cool, Connal thought, how he could get the gist of what James was trying to say without actually understanding any of the individual words. Even without any facial expressions, the meaning was loud and clear. "Started the party without me? Jackass," the redhead remarked, but with a grin. When the jar was offered, however, he was confused at first. Setting the bag down for the moment, he went ahead and put his own mask on, since that fire was pretty hot even from that far away. With that in place, he turned his took the jar from his fellow Pyro. No, he wasn't at all sure what was inside of it, but hey, this was a Pyro party. After the encouraging gesture, Connal gave a great heave, hurtling the jar at the flames.

Oh, so that's what that little explosion noise was, earlier. He thought he dreamed that.

Holy SHIT. That was even better then the first time. The blast actually sent the unprepared slippery arsonist flying backwards several yards, landing gracefully on his ass as he skidded across the muddy ground. The flames were now licking at the sky, easily six to five feet in height.

James managed to get to his feet, but it was obvious the Pyro wasn't seriously injured...in fact he was already laughing before he managed to slip the mask off. "PPppfff ha ha ha! I wasn't sure if you were coming! Took you long enough."

As far as the beginnings of days went, knocking himself on his back (and his friend back several yards) with a firey explosion was probably one of the best for Connal. The wind had been knocked out of him initially, but as soon as it was back he was laughing. He hadn't even realized just how far James had flown until the hybrid spoke up. Instead of explaining why he was late, however, the Michigander pulled up his mask and said, "I take back every single nervous thought I had about swamp gas. This shit's fuckin' awesome!" Then, an idea struck. "Hey, you think Red Shed's flammable?" It wasn't until after he said it that he realized it probably wouldn't be a very good idea to literally throw their booze away, but on the other hand, fucking firey explosions of death first thing in the- Wait, was it morning or afternoon?

Did the time really matter? Though, considering the position of the sun, it appeared to be the ungodly hour of about noon.

"Anything is flammable with enough fire." truly the words of a scholar. The salamander was already rifling through the duffle bag of booze. Hey, he liked the way this guy thought. "Though it would be kind of a shame, wouldn't it?" to be honest, it was taking a lot of self restraint to not just hoist up the bag by the handle and throw the whole shebang onto the fire to see what would happen. Probably something amazing, but it wasn't worth the potential consequences.

"Alas, there's only one way to find out." the slippery arsonist popped off the top of a bottle of Red Shed with his jaws and guzzled down about half of it (he didn't have the heart to mention it tasted like piss, but hey - alcohol, and he didn't want to waste ALL of it). "This is for SCIENCE!"

The bottle, trailing beer behind it as it sailed through the foggy air, gracefully spun before landing in the thick of the flames and....appeared to have no effect at all. "Awww..."

"Science is disappointing." Maybe trying to make a molotov cocktail out of it would be more effective, at least in spreading the fire a bit, but the only cloth he had on him was what he was wearing under the suit. "But who fuckin' cares, this is still the best way to start a day ever!" he declared, pushing himself back up on his feet. "C'mon, let's see if we can make it even bigger! Think we can get one of those trees to really catch?" Connal asked, one hand grabbing him a beer. He knew it was hard to burn damp wood, and the fact that these trees were still alive would probably make it even harder, but all that moss and all those leaves might help.

"Ppprooobably...." the salamander abandoned his flamethrower for the moment in favor of the ax. "I hope you're not planning on burning it while its standin' though, that would be a GREAT fuckin' way to set the whole base on fire."

"Come on, let's go find one of those fuckers to throw on the pile."

Connal dismissed the smaller Pyro's concern of accidentally setting fire to their base with a shrug. "Nah, not if we picked one a little further up," he replied, but took his mask the rest of the way off and followed after James regardless. "Besides, tryin' a chop down a tree'd take all day, man. I guess not if it was a skinny thing, but, y'know, if you wanna, then okay."
