Open Misty Hollow-Repair the Barrier

    Hello guys,

    So this is a brainstorming about the way the residents of Misty Hollow and everyone else who would like to help can work together in order to bring the barrier back. There is no plan yet, so any ideas are welcome. However, please keep in mind that I think it would be nice to keep the barrier down and encourage a few events with the malevolent entities.

    @Rani has already a different brainstorming for that kind of plotting and I would highly recommend to those who want a little bit of action to visit the thread here.

    Facts
    Unfortunately, the protective dome will never be exactly the same. One of the pillars has been completely destroyed, therefore, the original pentagram is beyond repair. In actuality, the magic that had been responsible for the dome was kind of unique because the character who had created is long gone.

    On the other hand, this can turn into a challenge. @Wanda Maximoff has helped Haldir in the past.

    Ideas
    • The individuals who possess the gift of magic can create a small ritual.
    • Try and failure. It doesn't have to be a success with the first attempt.
    • Evil characters are welcome to take advantage of the situation with "dark magic".
    • Defenders! We need a lot of them!!

    OCCULT RITUALS YOU SAYYYYY?

    So Ghost Rider has some rituals up his skeletal sleeve. Being around demons and having a demon on your back helps with that. So I'm totes gonna offer him! Idk if it'll work initially, but he could put in some of that ole demon magic as support into someone else's ritual. Would cause the barrier to maybe have a sharper sense of folks? Even humans who walk in like 'I'm gonna do the town harm' wouldn't be able to pass through at the end so <.< FUN?

    Johnny will be suuuuper awkward about it. I can just see this human biker dude in the midst of all these magical people who take him 0% serious. Which is hysterical. Please don't take him serious at all. >3

    Maybe there are some magic artefacts thought to repair or restore a barrier if found and put together, but they are scattered throughout Pandora? This could mean small search parties go off to different locations to look, where they face some manner of conflict? For example, a group goes off to track down a magic artefact in Medith's Run, but have to confront the sandworm that guards it, or to the Tiberian Islands, where they have to face sentient carnivorous plants, etc?

    I don't have any characters in Misty Hollow, but good deeds Gov and Ezekiel would be up for helping if these kinds of mission threads are of any interest?

    And it could end with them falling short of one of the magic artefacts, so they can't repair or restore the barrier that way. :D

    Danny doesn't know anything about rituals or magic, but he can help provide defense to make sure no one interrupts the ritual. If this takes place before the end of the season, then Danny's doppleganger Super can help provide defense as well for a double dose of ghostly protection.

    IF HALDIR ASKS FOR HELP INFUSING MAGIC OR ENERGIES OR WHATEVER, SHE WILL TOTALLY HELP AGAIN
    also tagging the cool outside barrier street gang @Crowley @Byakuren Hijiri

    icly tho Wanda is a little more wary of how good a town-wide scale barrier like that actually is. On the upside, it's acted as a decent stopper against a bunch of crises, but the downside is that it seems to foster this false sense of security and segregation from folk who are labeled as "evil" but don't... actually mean any harm (looking at u Crowley). Also in the event where it actually does go down (like now), there's mass panic.

    So for the time being she's happy to go around helping Byakuren and Crowley warding off individual buildings and town centers from haunts.

    On top of that, maybe instead of a hard barrier with clear boundaries, they could set up some kind of evil-begone sconce in the middle of town. The closer you get to it, the stronger the magic and aversion from malevolent entities, but the effect happens gradually instead of BOOM BARRIER.

    I don't think Nynaeve here can really help with repairing or creating a new anti-evil barrier or the like, because I've thought about what her type of magic could do and I don't imagine it can really differentiate between things so her magic would just keep... everyone out, which is unhelpful >>

    But, if there's going to be a physical part of the new barrier, like a rebuilt pillar, or a sconce as Siri suggested, I can put Nynaeve forward to help imbue it with her magic. She could either make it mostly unbreakable, and/or put a Ward around it so anyone who tries to mess with it will trigger some kind of defense.

    Idk if that would be helpful for you guys, but the offer's there 8D

    Crowley is willing to help out insofar as warding buildings/etc against malevolent spirits, but unless he had help (or a soul to work with), it's probably going to be on a very small scale and more of a short term solution, plus the wards he knows are very particular, meaning it's not even easy for him to pass it off to multiple people to help with. That being said, Crowley is very handy at ritualistic, ingredient-based spellwork, and he'd be willing to help out insofar as, say, @Wanda Maximoff 's idea of a sconce.

    Because yeah, he's not about to help them all build something else that's going to pick up on his demonic nature and give him the ol' boot.

    First of all, I just need to say : "THANK YOU ALL!!". It's awesome to see you guys are willing too plot this out! <3

    @Johnny Blaze I definitely like the idea of having the barrier reinforced with a sharper sense of understanding the intentions of supernaturals and humans alike. So, yeeeees! I would surely like to see him workng with some mages!! Maybe Haldir could see him on the "Rider" form and recruit him?

    @Dharke I LOVE this idea. We can have missions and stuff! Give the opportunity to more people who want to get involved. I would love to have King Ezekiel on board and the Governor could betray them and keep this magical artifact. This sounds like a good plan!! Although rumors are going around about the Governor, Haldir could assemble teams, the Governor could manipulate people and work behind the curtains?

    @Danny Fenton Unfortunately, this is going to take place during summer. :( So, we won't have the doppleganger. Buuut we are definitely going to need people who would keep safe those who perform the ritual. Maybe Haldir could see him defending people and ask for assistance with the barrier?

    @Wanda Maximoff Haldir will surely ask for her help. Although he would hate to bring such a nice person into this mess, I think he woud trust her magic! They could have an argument about the way the barrier used to work and they could come into a compromise and create an evil-begone sconce and maybe a few sigils.

    @Nynaeve al'Meara Actually, this would be very helpful! We could build a tower/pillar. If it was unbreakable, it could also become a begone of hope and a symbol. Like "the spirit of Misty Hollow will never break" thing.

    @Crowley Warding building could work as a temporary solution to the problem. This could be a "first line of defence". If you want to have him working around the ritual thing while causing a little bit of havoc, that's welcome as well!!

    I will leave this open for more people who would like to become a part of this, but I will start working on a plan and maybe a timeline. When I have the first draft ready, I'll post it here and tag you all. <3

    Gov is trapped in tiger form and doing good deeds to earn back his humanity. He wouldn't manipulate them or steal the artefact. :) I can offer up @Aulus Plautius as the bad guy if you needed somebody to serve this purpose in the plot, though!

    I'm going to tag @Blix with @Robert Gray here, since she suggested in the other thread having him potentially sabotage the attempts to restore the barrier.

    Thanks for the tag @Rani!

    So yeah, I mentioned in the other thread that if you guys need someone with a very vested interest in that barrier not going back up, I have Robert Gray here (he's Pennywise/IT trapped in human form thanks to Wanda, Zatanna and Emma at the end of last season). He is going to be extremely peeved about the timing of the barrier coming down to coincide with his total inability to take full advantage of it as he currently has none of his abilities and is as human as a human can get. So he would be very motivated to sabotage any attempts at getting it all back up and together for as long as possible, while he can figure out how the hell he can back to being his old abomination of a self and get in there with no fancy barrier stopping him.

    He is only human now so he'd probably be in a good position to not remotely seem like someone who would want the barrier to fail, which makes him a fairly decent candidate for a saboteur. That being said he'll be dodging Wanda hardcore because she's really the only person in MH who has any idea who he is, lol. But yeah if you need someone who will fake being helpful and then smudge up a rune when nobody is looking, or put an artefact slightly too far to the right or trip and accidentally break a one-of-a-kind artefact imbued with magic or spend an entire night dismantling with a sledgehammer the progress on a tower people have built during the day time - he's here if you want him! xD​

    Yessss Maybe he sees him during the Barrier stuff! Ghost Rider will be riding around getting people to the safe spots, or even escorting them out of town if they want to. He'll also be watching for any demons soooo, he could watch him fight and ask? Johnny will be so awkward with all these fancy mage folks omfg.

    Popping up here to say that Byakuren would actually share a lot of the concerns Wanda has regarding how the barrier can sometimes unfairly block some people from entering even though they have no ill intentions. She probably would support an alternative solution like the one proposed as well, and so would the NPCs that frequent her temple, so it would be an idea with a fair bit of support behind it.

    However, she will happily assist with whatever decision that's made regarding the subject, even if it doesn't fit her ideals.

    YEAH, like Byakuren she's not here to impose her view on Haldir (because he's the Man... Elf in charge) to the point of argument, but if it's up to suggestion at all she's in favor of the alternative solution (and might be a teensy bit biased because she genuinely feels bad for Crowley and the like)!

    As for technicalities, the energy she projects is potent but inherently unstable, especially if she's not around to manipulate it 24/7. She would definitely need that essential magical or artifact or ritualistic component to stabilize and ward off anything she creates for the long run (kind of... exactly like last time), so @Nynaeve al'Meara et al pls halp ;_; <33

    And yes meanwhile @Robert Gray can sneak around her back and make things even harder than it already is, that eldritch abomination jerk justice for tinkerbell

    Hey there everybody.

    It's Doctor Doom and he is super eager to help out and make himself look good. So looking through this while Doom would be into helping get a form of protection he'd also kinda be more on Haldir's side of barrier more because he doesn't want to risk anything interfering with his own machinations. But in the end he'll just follow what @Wanda Maximoff wants to do because he knows she's more powerful than him on a raw level. He could also help helping her focus her power in a more permanent way since he's done something similar before (and ended up with a handsome face that got reburned by himself being a douche)

    No worries. Haldir can absolutely spy Danny saving people and ask for his help. Especially if this means I get to thread with Haldir. We can also just say it happened too if you aren't open for a thread. Danny can also help with any artifact hunts.

    Hi! Powerful evil witch here!
    Irina would love to help warding evil from Misty Hollow, especially if she can cheat a little bit and change the rules from time to time to let herself/some of her allies in! She wouldn't help for the sake of people, of course; she'd do it for people to think she's nice.
    She has rune magic, which could be useful, but most importantly, she's basically a freelance "magiscientist", in her world, she was even able to turn green onions into a long-distance communication device, so I wouldn't doubt that with other mages' help, she could totally help find alternative ways to protect the town and modify them to use it at her advantage when she needs it.

    Seems I missed this somehow, but Watanuki will offer his extensive magical skills to this task. He's an expert in pretty much all forms of magic and as such can easily help with the barrier being brought back up, he'd also likely be able to deal with the unique magic that was used to set it up as well.

    He's had time to study the barrier so he might be able to work something out to help with the whole restoring it, thing is that rituals and barriers of this kind often need serious ingredients to get working. So maybe some people who'd be keen to chase down some exotic magical items would be useful as well, because we all know Pandora is littered with all kinds of useful things.

    Watanuki is also fairly good with barriers in general, having one around his house and person at all times. He might be able to either try and extend that temporarily or use his perchance for spirits and folk lore, to ask the denizens of the night to help rather then hinder the town itself.
