don't be scared
i will, oh, i will keep you safe

There were certain tells that promised snow; Audra knew them well. The falling air pressure, the appearance of heavy cumulus clouds, the perfect dip in temperature to that sweet spot just around freezing. The Sprite could tell a snowfall was coming from miles away; as she often was the cause of them, she needed to be able to tell when the earth was calling for a storm. It sang to her like a song, the yearning for rest that she would give once the winds and snows calmed. Silence would reign once more when the storm had passed, whenever it saw fit.

Yet... today these tells rang more like a threat than a promise. Something in the flakes that fell outside her window gave her pause. First and foremost, it shouldn't be happening at all - not in this place. San Francisco was nothing if not consistent in its weather, as much as it tortured Audra day to day, she could depend on the regular patterns of the temperature. She knew that it never got cold enough to snow here.

This brought her to her second realization, one that happened almost as immediately as the first. No natural phenomenon caused this storm - that she could be sure of. Something in the way it felt when she opened her bedroom window; the way it smelled when she inhaled deeply and released a slow steady breath. Something was wrong here. "Iorek, I'm headed out.." she called to her companion in the other room. He might protest for her safety's sake, but she would assure him that she'd be fine. If anyone could outlast a freak blizzard, it was her. They both knew that.

Quickly she got on her warmest clothes. Truth be told she didn't need them in the same way that humans did, but she wouldn't risk the odd stares she would get for walking around in the snow in shorts and a tank top. Besides, this vulnerable figure was still more susceptible to the cold than the Winter Sprite's true form ever was. San Francisco had never allowed her to test the lower limits of her human body, but she could only assume that this was the case. In true form, Audra would have rather prepared than find out.

Admittedly, she did take a bit of joy in it. Though not her own, it was a comfort to see the swirling current of flurries on the wind. Harsh as it was - which meant it would be brutal on San Francisco's plant and wildlife when it all subsided. This thought caused her to venture further from the door of her apartment building. Though the snow was blinding, bringing her visibility to a couple hundred feet, she could see well enough to know her way around her own neighborhood. The wind didn't phase Audra as much as she thought it might; even though the storm was a bitter one, she remained quite impervious to the cold. It was the first time her penchant for the cold came in handy. She set out without looking back.

What she was looking for, the Sprite didn't know. Something deep inside her was seeking the cause of the mysterious storm that swelled over the city. The strange - and dangerous - reason that had thrown off the area's careful natural balance. Audra found herself venturing to the nearest park, nearly yearning to see something of her home world here. The sloping hills of the lawns had already been coated in a few inches of snow; blanketing the familiar scene with an unfamiliar white glow. Unfamiliar for the city or the season, at least - it was a sight the Sprite was very used to and missed very dearly. It almost brought tears to her eyes. Almost. It would have if she didn't know there was something very wrong at work here.

She surveyed the area, seeing plenty of already buried flowerbeds and weather-worn trees that had been battered by the gusting wind and snow. And - what she thought to be a figure heading for the pond at the base of the hill she stood atop. It was the first person she'd seen out since she left her apartment. The rest of the residents of the city seemed to be smart enough to stay indoors or to rush inside once the power started to flicker. The figure wasn't far - within shouting distance - and headed straight for the not-yet-frozen-solid pond ahead of them.

Audra hesitated only a moment, praying that they might notice the pond's lack of solidity. They didn't, and Audra headed in their direction. "Hey!" she called, as loud as she could get above the wind. "Stop!" Her legs bound down the hill, thudding much more heavily than she was used to in the snow. That, she couldn't ponder quite yet, for she was more concerned for the person who was about to end up in waist-deep, nearly-freezing pond water.

If there was one thing that Rowan missed about home, it was waking up to freshly falling snow outside her window. Sure, the change was nice in not having to bundle up every time she wanted to go outside. However, Rowan had always loved bundling up to go race outside and watch the annual sled dog races held every month. Recalling the sled that her parents had bought her that had been left behind when everyone left town. Including her beloved Jenna who she was still no closer to finding despite many searches across the portal without her parent's knowledge. It seemed Jenna really didn't want to be found much to her dismay as she lay in her bed now. Running fingers through her long red hair as she looked up at the ceiling. Sighing softly as she attempted to push herself up out of bed. Surprised by a gentle chill in her apartment as she padded over to the window. Moving to close it as she prepared to get dressed before something caught her attention. Turning back to the window she was surprised to tiny snowflakes falling to the earth blanketing the city.

"It's snowing," whispered the redhead as though to speak louder may make it false.

A wide smile gracing her young face as the tiredness vanished from her features. An eagerness to dart outside coming back over her just as it had when she was younger. Squealing a little at the prospect of getting out into the snow and building a snowman like she used to do with her parents. Darting about her room in an attempt to find herself something suitable to wear. Ignoring the text messages by her worried mother insisting that she stay indoors. As if a little snow and some previous sickness were going to stop her from enjoying the feeling of fresh snow crunching under her feet. Dashing around as she went to throw on some jeans and a long sleeve shirt including her jacket before finding some socks to wear as well. She didn't even bother with breakfast as she was far too excited about the prospect of playing in the snow. A welcomed sight to the young girl that was desperately missing her home back in Alaska. Sure, it was dangerous to live there now supposedly, but it was all she had ever known. Tugging some socks on before she padded over to her boots shrugging them on.

Satisfied that she was about as ready as she could be, the young redhead grabbed her keys and locked up behind her. Taking the stairs two at a time as she was far too excited to wait for the elevator. Glad that it was the weekend so she could have some fun instead of busying herself with school work. Her head swimming with all the possible things she could do in the snow. Granted, she wouldn't have Jenna to play with or a sled dog team to watch, but there was a dozen of other possibilities. She was only as limited as her imagination as she flung the doors open to step outside in the snow. Grinning brightly as snowflakes started to fall down and into her hair making her laugh with delight. Stretching her hands out and letting the snow tickle the palm of her hands. Spinning around a few times before deciding to head to the park. Figuring that there may be some kids there that she could play with. Not realizing just how much of a blizzard it was, but this was hardly anything unusual for Rowan.

Making her way best that she could through the snow comfortably as her imagination took over. The sidewalks turning into a snow bridge that would thus take her to a snowy kingdom. The cars become various wild animals and the houses melted away to trees and various other flora. Grinning brightly as she continued to walk the long winding bridge towards the park. Arms outstretched as she felt the snow whizz by her giving her the feeling of flight. Eventually arriving at the park as she moved across the path of a horse-drawn carriage hearing the snort of annoyance as she quickly raced to the other side. Finding herself making her way towards the park's pond where there were rumors of magic that allowed you to walk on water. Seeing other kids playing nearby as she wandered further down to the edge of the pond. Taking her first few steps onto the pond before a voice shattered the illusions making her turn her head.

"What?" she started to say before she heard the sound of ice cracking underneath her feet.

Whatever games she had playing were swiftly put to an end as she stood there now. Recalling a similar moment from her childhood only this time she didn't have Jenna to save her as she froze trying to decide how she was going to get out of this without taking yet another icy swim.

don't be scared
i will, oh, i will keep you safe

Snowflakes flew into her face and eyes as Audra hurried down the hill, leaving a trail of snow disturbed behind her. At the rate it was falling, her tracks would be covered in no time, no matter how rushed and messy they were. Once more she cursed the fragile human figure she had compared to her natural one; she would have stopped the snow otherwise, or at least parted it long enough to make her way down the hill. While she could never truly be upset to see snow - her own beloved element, it was awfully hard to see through it like this. 

A small idea came to mind, though hesitation held it back, if only for a moment. Like her tolerance the cold, she didn't have much opportunity to test the limits of her power this side of the portal. For fear of causing a serious disruption to the delicate balance of San Francisco’s ecosystem, she made more effort to control herself than to risk it. Well, she supposed, there was already damage done - and there was little she would do that could make it worse. Understanding the advantage it could give her, she chose to try it. A hand gestured the flurries away from her face, and the wind listened, directing them out of her line of sight. It was only a bit of magic, and she still hoped it would go unnoticed in the urgency of the situation. But it had helped her visibility. 

With a bit of snow out of her face, the scene now lay before her more clearly. It wasn't just any figure out on the pond but a teenage girl. Her red hair stood out in stark contrast to the world of white around her, though Audra couldn't see her face until she turned around. The knowing look of realization crossed her face, the danger suddenly imminent. Audra neared as the girl appeared frozen in place. She would have reached out to her if she was near enough, but she was just out of reach. The wind and snow raged on around them, but at least she was nearer now. She just needed to get the girl on solid ground, but that was easier said than done. 

"The surface isn't thick enough -" she called. That much was probably obvious to her now, though Audra was keen to that fact for other reasons. (Reasons the young woman in the middle of the pond didn’t need to know.) At a loss for what to do to help, the Winter Sprite froze a moment herself before edging as close to the pond’s edge as she could. She might be able to get closer to the girl in order to help her back across... She might be able to do a great deal more than that, perhaps blow the snow away or strengthen the ice underfoot, but she wouldn’t. Not yet - not unless it became her only choice. 

"Can you walk back across?” She asked, clear as she could above the wind. There was a distinct thin line making its way across the surface of the pond, but how deep it went and how volatile it was, there was no telling. The girl’s only option might be to move; the only thing certain was that they needed to figure it out quickly.
