Agents have been unable to find important manuscripts that have been shelved not more than ten minutes earlier. Nobody’s died in the field yet, but the number of mishaps are alarming. Trains are being missed. Lunches (and coffee) have been spilled. Miscommunication abounds. Technology has ceased to function for no clear reason. Snowstorms have appeared out of nowhere in London, trapping agents indoors. A note about this has already been mislaid. No one panic, but on the other hand, don’t think you’re invincible either. Something’s going on. It’s entirely possible that it’s a Stand. Fortunately, Koichi and his partner are arriving to take a look, so until then, hang tight and do not let your emotions get the better of you. That’s already resulted in a broken hand, and really, we don’t want a repeat of that incident.
Bye Bye Beautiful (B3)
Stand User: Josephine Joestar
Bye Bye Beautiful, or B3, taps deep into ancient stories of Sidhe (which Buffy has met and assures me are not nice). Beautiful, but deadly, and able to trod the faery paths (which were not meant for mortals).
Bye Bye Beautiful allows its user to pass through different ‘portals’/doorways and walk through a different one, effectively teleporting in combat. This isn’t a power of B3, but Josephine also knows Hamon, though she didn’t get the cheat sheet like her son.
Dark Chest of Wonders— The opening of the connection between the ‘doorways’. (These doorways don’t even really have to work or open, just be, symbolically, a doorway.) To pass through and fall into the trap, the target has to be the same size as the doorway they’re going to pass through. B3 doesn’t allow only one doorway to open, so a passage must be created (and escape must be possible), but Josephine can manipulate the length of the hallway to make it more difficult to reach the end goal or to disorient. Alternatively (though this is risky), B3 can open two doors and close the first once all have passed through the opening. This is inherently unstable and could collapse at any time.
We’ll Be Waiting – What lays in the passageway between doorways is a dangerous and Lovecraftian world. Josephine, Kakyoin, and Jotaro seem unworried about these things being set loose on the world, potentially because the doorways don’t tend to be open for long.
Exposure to this world might explain Josephine’s mental state. The Joestars are our patrons. Do not write things like this in official documents. Thanks for the vote of confidence, boys! I really am a wonder, aren’t I?
