Christmas Day

((On the road to Raatevaara))

Pentti crawls in from the east, stolen Russian rifle in hand as he jumps back down in the trench.

Maybe because it was Christmas, or maybe after Matti's death… Marja just can't sit and hide while everyone else risks their lives. She's fairly certain there isn't another nurse on first aid or medic duty so… the moment she stared hearing the gun fire, she grabbed one of the makeshift first aid kits they have and, well, began to run. Her feet are numbed now, cloak not much helpful, but she's almost there.. a little blonde shadow running over the snow. She just needs to make it to the damned trench..

Vesa hasn't a clue what's gone on, following the sounds of others' skiis as he gets into the area. He ducks down into the reserve trench, his boots skidding on the frozen dirt as the rifle bangs against the small of his back.

Erkki drags the machinegun along into the trenchroad, looking for whoever the shooter earlier was and finding his brother crawling into the trench. "Pentti," he grunts and starts setting up shop here instead. "What happened?"

Joona has arrived.
Joona arrives from the North.

Marja skiis smoothly into the trench, the fighting having stopped for now it seems. She ducks down low and quickly unstraps herself from her skiis. No fear, for the moment, or hesitation in her fact as she asks quickly, breathlessly, her warm breath steaming in the air…"W-who's… hurt?" It doesn't take her long to catch sight of Pentti, and she heads there first…."Come on, let me see it…"

Pentti begins explaining to Erkki while giving his Suomi a sad look. "Well, they came here walking down the road from the east." He waves his hand towards the vehicle graveyard. "'Merry christmas' they shouted. 'We brought presents, now give us some food'. I tried to explain that I didn't have any, and they got mad and started tearing up our wire. So I shot at them." He eyes Marja, "What? See what?"

Antti trudges in from the north, dropping into the trench without comment, and quietly turning a look eastward. Leaning against the trench wall, listening to the sotry Pentti tells.

Vesa blinks as he listens to Pentti's tale. He glances at Erkki, pulling the rifle strap up securely on his shoulder before looking off towards the east.

Joona is shortly behind, of course, possibly just lagging… not an odd thing at his age. His homespun scarf has made it up over his lips and nose, but still kept out of his vision as a precaution. "They should come back…" he mentions at Pentti's explanation. "I have some brass wrapped lead they can chew on…"

Erkki nods understandingly at Pentti. "They got a lot of wire removed?" He can't stop the scornful comment: "She wants to see your cock, Pentti. Show it to her." He glares at the young woman. "What are you doing here?" he grunts at her, picking up some ammunition.

"Do we have any wire left to replace it?" Vesa asks, tugging the rifle strap up again. His doubtful face answers his own question as he casts a glance around the trench and its contents.

Marja just stops, shaking out the brief adrenaline surge as she realizes that bandage is rather quite old, and he's uninjured otherwise. She shuts the first aid kit again, hugging her hands over the small strap together so they are pressed against each other in attempts to keep her fingertips almost warm…"I'm here to help, you idiot. It's Christmas… I'm not letting any of you die again…" She almost growls it out, keeping low in the trench. Waiting. "And don't be foul on Christmas, Erkki."

"Erkki!" Pentti grunts, "It's christmas." He turns to look east, "I think one of them dropped his ear, he'll probably come back to look for it."

"Dear Santa…" Joona muses as he ducks the barage.

«Equipment» Pentti picks up Suomi M-31.

«Game» Antti unwields his Pystykorva!

Vesa ducks his head down fast as artillery starts raining down, shouting over to Marja. "Put your head down, dammit!"

Pentti picks up his Suomi, "I'm going to go hide this from all the retards around here."

«Game» Marja changes her style to TakeCover!

«Equipment» Antti has dropped Pystykorva.

"So, show her your cock, that's a nice Christmas gift. Later on she can get a better look at it and unwrap it and all," Erkki suggests crudely. He's patting down himself to find his cigarettes, but is forced to duck down to take cover as a shell bursts nearby. "MERRY CHRISTMAS!" he shouts out. Then he laughs. Rather madly.

Antti ducks down as well as the first shell screams in. Setting down his rifle, the famrer makes hsi way toward the S-!8, carefully.

«Equipment» Antti has dropped F-1 Grenade.

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

«Equipment» Antti picks up S-18 Solothurn.

«Game» Antti wields his S-18 Solothurn!

Marja releases a little yelp, not actually having done this front lines thing yet, and it's… well, terrifying. For those first few moments, she just ducks down as low as she can, arms wrapping up over her head as she waits for it to end…"Oh god… " She breathes out, keeping low… just waiting for when she can help. If she can move, that is.

«Ground Combat» Pentti moves West <W>.

Antti steals a short look eastward as he does about deploying the big gun. Just in case. A sidelong look toward MArja, and a lowly muttered, "Just keep low, and you'll be fine."

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

Vesa puts his back against the trench wall, crouched down. He checks his rifle as the barrage continues around them, satisfied after a few seconds that it's loaded and ready to go. A slight smirk at
Erkki, then he looks over towards the others. "Just keep that head down. They can't even shoot straight."

«Game» Vesa tries to inspire the troops!

«Ground Combat» Antti deploys his S-18 Solothurn!

Marja gives a weak little laugh at Vesa's comment about shooting straight but, well, until she hears someone crying out in pain or going down, she really isn't moving from the little huddle she's made for herself against the wall of the trench, arms up and head down…

Luukas skiis down from the woods, a rifle on his back but apparently alone. Hearing the voices ahead he slows and tries to scan the horizon's white blanket of snow for any sign of life.

Erkki decides not to smoke right now, with dirt and snow spraying around that cigarette could be wasted. He grins at Vesa and stays low in the trench, waiting patiently.

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

Antti finishes deploying the antitank gun, and double checks the count of shells. "Set," he mutters, eyes still fixed on the eastern road.

«Game» Vesa tries to inspire the troops!

Luukas quickly pushes off as the artillery shell explodes against a tree, heading towards the trenchwork visible. "Merry Christmas, Comrade" muttered to himself in a growl.

«Game» Luukas changes his style to Stealth!

Vesa snickers quietly as the barrage keeps coming. "This is their idea of a Christmas gift. Obviously they've never celebrated with a Finn before."

«Ground Combat» You are now peeking into Road.

«Game» You can't inspire the troops until the Armageddon Clock has ticked another 196 times.

«Ground Combat» You notice Topi arrive at Road.

Luukas lifts his head, "Topi!" as he spots him, "Take cover! Artillery!"

Antti sniffs once. "They've been celebrating with us all month."

Topi comes running, grinning a little as he's heading for the trench, diving to get into it as fast as possible.

«Ground Combat» Topi moves into Reserve Trench.

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

Luukas looks around again, frowning a bit as he tries to stay against the wall of the trench seperate from the cluster of others. Another look, towards the north, and he begins inching that way down the trench.

«Ground Combat» Luukas moves North <N>.

Vesa hehs quietly at Antti, ducking his head a bit more as the shrapnel pounds down. "Well they're shitty at it anyway."

Topi frowns a little as he gets to his feet again. "Where will they be coming from?" he asks.

Antti mutters colorlessly, "We should have brought the cards to kill time. Ivan must intend to bore us to death with all these shells."

Topi grins, "They're lousy shots with those shells," he remarks, lightly.

Vesa rests a shoulder against the wall, keeping rifle in hands. He snickers at Topi. "Even their artillery's a bad shot in the cold."

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

Pentti creeps back into these parts of the trench, keeping his head low even though nobody is torn to pieces yet. He doesn't want to end up split in half. He looks around and turns a corner to head on out.

«Game» Vesa tries to inspire the troops!

«Ground Combat» Pentti moves South <S>.

Marja shivers a bit harder from where she's hidden in the snow of the trench… "God… don't they ever…stop…" She breathes out, daring to pick up her head a few moments and look over the men, make sure no one is hurt and she missed it…

"Shut up with the whining. You chose to come here, now keep your teeth from clattering," Erkki says, shooting Marja a dark look. He spits out some dirt-filled snow that got sprayed over his face from the last blast.

Topi grins, as he looks between the others. "Are we waiting to go somewhere in particular, or just waiting here?" he asks. Then he offers a grin at Marja. "They'll stop when they've wasted all their shells," he offers.

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

Vesa adjusts his crouched position so his foot stops falling asleep. He glances over at Marja and shrugs. "Don't listen to Erkki. They always stop eventually. Just keep your head down, you'll be fine."

«Game» Vesa tries to inspire the troops!
«Lock'n'Load!» You just received a Molotov!

Marja is pretty good at ignoring Erkki at this point, and she keeps her head down, but gives a small smile to Topi and Vesa, nodding… "Wasting their shells,almost sounds like a good idea…" She offers with just a bit of a laugh before returning to her head down the whole way..

Topi snickers as he listens to the various things said, and the explosions. "Nice sounds, as long as they're not hitting." He then growls, as the cold seems to be getting to his legs. "Ouch…"

Vesa looks over at Topi and smirks. "Cold's doing better on you than their arty is."

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage rips through Road to deadly effect, filling the air with lethal shrapnel!

Marja is just quiet now… it really is cold out here… she keeps her hand down, but she reaches up one little hand to rub across her cheek and forehead, trying to heat up her skin just a bit as she sits there. She's not going to complain… not after Erkki's scolding… but it hurts. Her gray eyes watch the men as much as they stay focused on the ground..

Antti sniffs once and mutters, "They spend shells like rich children spend thier parents' money."

Topi can't help himself, he feels the need to shout.

Vesa laughs a little as he hears Topi. He adjusts his shoulder against the wall and exhales a little steam from behind his scarf. He's looking a little more worse for the wear than the others. His hands are shaking on the rifle now.

Marja gives a soft little laugh at Topi's words…"I really don't think they heard you… " she calls back, as the miserable sound continues but nothing really hits at all. She's not exactly relaxed, but she's not quite so terrified looking as she was before.

Topi grins a little as he listens to Marja. "Not only lousy shots, but deaf as well…"

Vesa hehs quietly. "Let's hope they're blind too." He's starting to sound like he doesn't believe his own words, or theirs. Each hit of the artillery makes him flinch a bit more, hands more unsteady.

«Game» Vesa tries to inspire the troops!

«Artillery» 76mm Universal Gun artillery barrage batters Road ineffectually.

«Artillery» Artillery barrage at Road has lifted!

«Game» Marja tries to inspire the troops!

Marja turns her head as she hears the tone of Vesa's words… and she just frowns…"Hey…. hey, it's gonna let up. It'll be fine, Vesa, really… Just take a breath…" She watches him now, just a bit worried, but gentle.

Well… she was trying to help. Just as Marja reaches over to grab a bandage out of the small case, the shell actually comes into the trench. Snow is almost pretty when it explodes, though a rain of blood comes with it and the girl topples back, an utter mess… probably dead.

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Nikita!

Vesa ducks again as a shell whizzes past him. "They're almost all out, Antti," he reports, still just trying to keep the man's spirits up. "Just that damn tank now!"

Antti grits his teeth and hollers, "Unless anyone has a molotov, get the hell out of here! Go north, or south and take the wounded!"

Erkki is shooting at the tank, not because he'll hit a damn thing except metal, but because it'll stress those russians inside of it.

Tuomas shakes his head, standing over the tank, away from its windows. There's absolutely nothing he can do about it, without grenades. And with that, he starts moving North.

Antti slips over the lip of the trench, and runs, low to the ground, toward the tank..

Vesa comes rushing in from the south, keeping his head low. "Antti hit it," he reports breathlessly. "But it's still moving!"

Erkki has taken up position somewhat north, still keeping to the trench and watching down towards the road. "Yeah," he says, looking pissed off. "They're getting through this time." He wipes at his face, removing some of the soot.

Vesa twists around in the trench, peeking up over the edge. He blinks, seeing Pentti. "Pentti's down there now too."

Erkki's eyes widen. "Pentti!" he says and straightens up to see better. "That maniac," he mutters, narrowing his eyes in sudden tension.

Pentti watches the tank with narrowed eyes, and the banging coming from there. He takes a few steps back from it, not really kicking in that he should move out now.

«Game» Vesa assists Erkki!

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Anton!

Erkki spends almost the entire clip of ammo, then suddenly stops. "They're not shooting anymore, I think they're mostly out of it." Seeing his brother stil down there, he twitches a little.

Erkki shouts, "PENTTI YOU GOD DAMN MANIAC, IT'S TIME TO MOVE UNLESS YOU GOT MORE CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR THE RUSSIANS IN THE TANK!".

From Road, a male voice shouts, "Bring up the rest of the bombs!".

Vesa shouts, "GET OUT OF THE TANK AND RUN YOU COWARDS! (Russian)".

Tuomas scrambles to your position, blinking, "Bombs? What bombs?"

«Ground Combat» Vesa reloads Erkki's DP 27!

Pentti blinks a few times, he's hearing something through the ringing noise in his head and he starts to shuffle north.

«Ground Combat» Pentti moves North <N>.

«Ground Combat» You notice Pentti arrive at Swamp/Marsh.

(From T-26 M33_) Vasili pulls a shard of shrapnel out of his leg and hurls it at Anton. "Just work those controls, you fool," he hisses.

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Anton!

«Ground Combat» Vesa reloads his Pystykorva!

Erkki lets out a deep breath when he sees Pentti moving. He might officially hate his brother but unofficially? Not so much. "Pentti blew it up, but they're still able to move. Not much we can do. THey'll get to live through Christmas at least."

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Anton!

Vesa sets about reloading both his rifle and Erkki's DP 27, even though he knows this is probably over now. He looks over at Pentti as the man comes up to where they are, and grins.

Pentti shuffles through the snow, heading for the trench.

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Anton!

Tuomas nods happily, "That's good. It got a direct hit on the trench." The slow man's tone is vague, and traces of the happy, oblivious smile stay on his broad face. "I wish we had more grenades." His tone is slighlty wistful, but he doesn't seem too bothered by the tank down South.

«Ground Vehicles» Vasili barks orders at Anton!

«Ground Combat» Pentti moves into Front Line Trench.

«Ground Vehicles» T-26 M33_ moves West <W>.

From Road, a male voice shouts, "They're past the roadblock!".

Vesa lets out a breath as the tank moves along, gritting his teeth.

«Ground Combat» Erkki undeploys his DP 27!

Erkki looks a bit unhappy. "We let them past." THen he shakes his head. "Never mind, they /limped/ past." He picks up the MG and throws it over a shoulder. "Let's grab whatever loot we can get."

Tuomas shrugs his shoulders, "The tank is pretty much inoperative. If we keep the infantry from moving past, it will freeze solid or break down soon enough."

Pentti jumps down into the trench, almost shouting "Don't think it will do much good for some time. Can somebody check my head?" He taps his own head quite hard, "It's ringing very loud in it."

«Ground Combat» Erkki moves South <S>.

«Ground Combat» You notice Erkki arrive at Road.

«Ground Combat» Vesa moves South <S>.

Vesa trudges through the trench as they head southwards again. He casts an eye around at all the bodies, turning one over with his boot toe and checking the pockets for anything useful.

Pentti heads out to loot the dead corpses. Picking anything useful they might have, like ammo, and guns, cigarettes and whatever else he might be able to find.

«Game» Pentti wields his PPD!

Tuomas glances at the SMG-toting Finn, "You've got two guns!" Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah. He grins at Pentti with a vapid, absent-minded smile. He looks away, glancing at the tank corpses further along the road. "I could use a Suomi too, if we had bullets for it. Or a Bofors. Hey, maybe Mannerheim will send us that as a Christmas present!" With the odd hamalainen, it's very very hard to tell whether that's irony.

"Three actually", Pentti shows the Tokarev he has in his pocket. "It's christmas you know." He loots some more pockets of dead Russians before picking up a small piece of the tank that fell off in the blast.

"That's funny." Tuomas grins at Pentti. He might look like a madman, if it wasn't for his brown eyes - the vague look there has nothing of the maniac intensity one might expect otherwise. He seems largely unbothered by the blood and bodyparts lying around the trench.

Tuomas clambers out of the trench, heading for the battlefield to the East.
Tuomas has left.
Tuomas heads off East.

Vesa crouches by one of the bodies, pulling things from the dead soldier's pocket. There's a glint here and there, a rustle. He shoves random things into his own pockets to go through later, then looks over at Tuomas and Pentti.

Pentti unloads the PPD and tosses it to the side, he may be okay with Russian bullets, but the Suomi works just fine for him.

Tuomas has arrived.
Tuomas arrives from the East.

Erkki gets as much ammunition as he can carry from the bodies and collects the rest into a small pile. "Hey, got some ammunition here," he calls out.

Tuomas carries back a Degtyarev from the road - the late Ivan's toy - cheerfully moving into the trench once more. And heading for the ammo pile.
Tuomas scrambles into the trench, and stops near the weapons pile, staring at the PPD, "We don't have any spare Parabellum, do we?" His brown eyes make a quick check of the corpses and the trench around them. Not looking good.

«Game» Tuomas moves into Reserve Trench.

Pentti is done with his looting after some searching, happy with what it gave him he walks over to Erkki, digging up a Tokarev from one of his pockets he holds it out for Erkki. "Merry christmas. I even have a bit of ammo for it." He offers no explanation for this sudden free gift, replying to Tuomas over his shoulder. "No"

Tuomas shrugs his shoulders, moving to the 7.62 ammo, and scooping it into an extra clip for the Russian MG, and into his ammo belt. "I'll use the Degtyarev, then." He carries the light MG across his shoulders, looking like he has at least some acquintance with it.

Erkki looks at Pentti with a blank expression for a moment, then looks down at the offered weapon. He reaches out for it and accepts it. "Wait," he says and he digs out his pack of cigs and gives that to his brother. "And… This was Matti's." He pulls the leuku from his belt and holds that out too, handle first. "Merry Christmas, brother."

Oh right, Christmas. Vesa watches the men talk, staying crouched where he is by some body or another. He looks down at the Russian for a few moments, then eastward.

Pentti takes the offered gifts without any more words, strapping the Leuku to his belt.

"Jouluyo… Juhlayo…" Tuomo's loud, surprisingly strong voice carries over the snow and blood drenched battlefield, in the tones of Silent Night. He seems happy, or at least content, there in the midst of the desolation and destruction. Still, he keeps his head low, and his eyes to the East.

Erkki shoots Pentti a grin, then looks to see how Vesa's doing. The singing makes him blink, and wipe some of the grime away from his face. Then, he chimes in with the singing, raising his voice up to the sky. It sounds horrible, but hey.

Pentti falls into the singing a bit after Erkki, not that loud though, more singing to himself although he needs to be louder than the ringing, so still enough to let others around hear that he actually has a decent voice.

Vesa keeps looking towards the east, remaining where he is a little ways from the others. Crouched in the trench, his folded arms resting atop his knees. For once, he doesn't join in the singing.

Tuomas continues singing as he sets up the Degtyarev, bipod extended so that it leans against the edge of the trench, "Paattynyt, kaik' on tyo, kaks vain valveil' on puolisoa…" The somewhat slow-seeming man continues singing, his voice surprisingly clear and pleasant, carrying far over the frozen woods. There's something… Impreturpably innocent about him, the impression never seeming stronger than now. For all of him, he could be in a church singing, if it wasn't for the weapon in his hands and the field of war around him.

Erkki sings along in the first verse, then shuts up and lets Tuomas, who actually can sing be the one providing the Christmas spirit. He leans against the trench wall and closes his eyes.

Vesa remains silent. From his expression it's impossible to tell if he's enjoying, or even listening to the carol. He keeps his face turned away from the sound, still watching the east.

Pentti shuts up after some singing too, the adrenalin rush is wearing off and he slumps a bit, just in time to get a bit of frostbite for the first time tonight. "I think I need some rest. Or something to eat." he mumbles so he won't disturb the singing and starts to shuffle off.

"Maassa rauha myos ihmisille… Olkoon suosio suur… Olkoon suosio suur!" And with that, the song is finished. Tuomas shuts up, crouching a little as the harsh, cold wind blows over his cheeks, letting go of the MG to let it rest against the side of the trench. He stares thoughtfully at it for a moment, before muttering thoughtfully, "It's a cold christmas this year." From the momentarily flicker of intelligence and self-realization crossing his slow face - and the faint, gentle sadness in his brown eyes, that's meant to adress more than just the temperature. But almost instantly the vague, amiable smile returns to his face, and he starts whistling, staring Eastwards.

Vesa doesn't move, doesn't speak as the singing fades into whistling. His expression is hidden by his thick scarf, and that's probably for the best.
