Backdated to the start of the powercuts

(When Engie hears the broadcast and feels the cold, he's decided he's had enough. There was no way in Hell that he is going to let the town win one over him this time around.)

Action: 1450 Mitchell Road and around, soon after the broadcast.

(If you catch him in the house, you might find him dismantling the appliances in the house at an alarming rate. His fingers are working so fast that it's surprising he hasn't jabbed them accidentally yet. Heck, he's even pulling the car apart for parts. All of these go into the garage, where there's a huge commotion going on inside. Stop to investigate, y/n?)

Phone: filtered to TF2 cast mates.
Listen up alla ya. I've gotta heater goin' on at mah place. Everyone a'ya are free to bunk up with me, but Lord help me if I see even so much as a peep outta your Sapper Spah, I will kick your behind all the way back ta France.

Filtered to Ilsa, Madame Foster, Finch, Barton, America, Kotomi and anyone else who's had CR with Engie.
You folks need a heater?

After people have disappeared

Action: Around Town
(Immediately after the news broadcast is over, Engie grabs his coat and runs out, cold be damned. He checks house after house of people he knows and sure enough, they're gone. He doesn't give up though; he can't just accept what this town has told him. He'll see it with his own eyes, or none at all.

You might catch Engie running around. Or he might be staring at certain houses with horror in his eyes, his hand gripping the fence tightly. Whatever it is, feel free to stop him to ask what's wrong.)

(When he hears his name being called out, he turns around excitedly; maybe it was all fake, that everyone of those that he cared about on that list hadn't disappeared. But the sight of Kotomi's duplicate crushes his hope. His head drops, but he's born and bred to be a gentleman, so he replies to her.)

Mornin' Miss Kotomi.

(He knows she's not real but...maybe she'd been droned. Maybe this fake would turn back into her some day.)

I'm afraid I have to decline, Laborer. Zee sort of generosity you are offering me eez too cruel. You worry about your own team. Us BLUs can look out for each ozzer just fine.

(Well, the illusive BLU Spy finally speaks. Engie's eyes narrow and his grip on the receiver tightens slightly.)

Nice ta hear from ya Spah.

If ya don't wanna come over, then that's fine with me. But I'd rather hear what the rest of your team thinks than bank it all on your opinion.

Zee rest of zee team, hmm?

(In Scout's voice:) No way, I ain't taking nuthin' from no REDs!

(In Medic's voice:) Agreed. No good could come from cooperating wiz zem.

(In Sniper's voice:) Besoides, wot's t' say they're any good at 'oling up in this weather?

(In Heavy's voice:) BLU team's things are for BLU team! Not for sharing with baby RED team!

Sounds like a unanimous opinion.

Oh, I can procure that easily. [Go to car, remove battery.]

The rest, I'll leave to you.

After Disappearing - Action

[This... hadn't been how he expected the disappearing to work. Not at all. A dream was just a dream, but in the dream, he was supposed to be gone.

Not staring at Engie peering sadly into someone's yard.]


Uh... Engie?

[So here's another disappointment to see with your own eyes, Engie. "Finch Twoson" hadn't been on the list, but "Picky Minch" was. And Picky Minch was now an un-person, standing in his front yard, staring back at you.]

Date: 2011-12-19 01:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
No...not you too Finch!!

(Engie grabs the boy firmly by the shoulders, the anguish in his voice choking him up.)

Your name wasn't on the list! The town can't take ya away like this, damn it!!!

(He doesn't swear, but when he does it's for a good reason.)

imjustpicky: (Aside glance)
From: [personal profile] imjustpicky
[Oh. This was several different kinds of unpleasant and awkward. He remains stiff in Engie's hold. His eyes drop to the ground.]

I... I'm not really Finch, Engie.

[Then his eyes widen, and he looks back up at him. No, no, he said that wrong, now he has to tell the TRUTH, so...]

I'm... my real name is Picky! Picky Minch! I WAS on the list! I had to call myself Finch because my big brother said I'd get hurt if anyone knew we were related!

[He has to believe it, or understand it, or get it, he HAS to...]

I'm not.. I'm not really a fake. I'm not.
