"You can't fit that mirror in---"
-- Jedite to Michiru about the Aqua Mirror and Nephlite 's... you know.

welcome to #suburbansenshi3

[21:02] <Megan O`Cain> (( What was that? ))
[21:02] <Meiling Hong> (( Not sure. ))
[21:02] * Meiling Hong remains asleep and oblivious to everything going on around her.
[21:03] <HK-416> Strategic Importance Absolute! That's why! That's all!
[21:04] * Megan O`Cain sighs ~_~
[21:05] <HK-416> We have no say in our orders, only that we carry them out!
[21:07] <Megan O`Cain> So you just blindly follow them DESPITE knowing the consequences?
[21:09] <UMP-9> Strategic Importance Absolute!
[21:09] <UMP-45> ¬_¬
[21:09] <UMP-45> ~__~
[21:12] <Megan O`Cain> You're just gonna keep saying that phrase, aren't you?
[21:12] <Forest Kits> Fluffy even more importance absolute :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[21:13] * Forest Kits trill.
[21:14] <Megan O`Cain> Oiiiii. ~_~
[21:15] <UMP-45> Yeah, you little guys ARE pretty important.
[21:17] <Megan O`Cain> So, what can be done to stop Kryuger from fulfilling missions against the Federation, and their allies?
[21:19] * UMP-45 smiles wrying as she strokes SEVERAL Forest Kits at once.
[21:19] <UMP-45> ^wryly
[21:19] <UMP-45> Maybe you should ask him that yourself. ^_^
[21:20] <Megan O`Cain> Hmmmm.
[21:21] <Megan O`Cain> Where is he?
[21:23] <UMP-45> Three guesses. I think you can figure it out at least by the second.
[21:24] * Megan O`Cain ponders for a moment
[21:28] <Megan O`Cain> Is it somewhere Alliance occupied?
[21:32] <UMP-45> No, but it's a place that's been touched BY the Alliance.
[21:33] <Megan O`Cain> If it is on planet Earth, the only place that comes to mind is Chernobyl.
[21:33] * UMP-45 smiles radiantly.
[21:34] <Megan O`Cain> Swell. ~_~
[21:36] * Megan O`Cain looks at UMP-45, "I gonna take a long shot in the dark, and say that you don't wanna fight against the Federation."
[21:39] <UMP-45> What did you have in mind about them?
[21:41] <Megan O`Cain> To be honest, I don't know. ~_~
[21:41] <Forest Kits> :3
[21:43] <UMP-45> Well, let's figure that out shall we? In the meantime...
[21:44] *** UMP-9 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Teeny kits!! Help me read this movie script and figure out just HOW foxes would create a "night of terror".")
[21:44] *** HK-416 has left #suburbansenshi3 (I am all that you need.)
[21:44] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Yup, this ALL leads BACK to the Zone.")
[21:45] *** Megan O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (Donnie? Michelle? Let's try to figure this out.)
[21:46] *** Forest Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 (:D)
[19:12] *** Meanwhile, in Gensokyo
[19:13] * HK-416 looks back and forth carefully as she proceeds to step through the open main gate of the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
[19:19] <HK-416> I believe the coast is clear.
[19:20] <Forest Kits> Reisen Udongein Inababada! :D
[19:23] <HK-416> Excuse me?
[19:23] <HK-416> The rabbit-girl is presently not here.
[19:24] * Megan O`Cain and her cousins walk on through the gate
[19:25] * UMP-9 is still laughing as she reads more of the script for "Foxes Rats: Night of Terror">
[19:25] <Forest Kits> :3
[19:27] <Megan O`Cain> Looks like the kits are having fun.
[19:27] <Michelle O`Cain> They always do!
[19:28] <Forest Kits> :D
[19:29] <Forest Kits> wanna play with remilia? :D
[19:30] <Michelle O`Cain> Should we?
[19:30] <UMP-45> Isn't she kind of snobbish though?
[19:32] <Forest Kits> she LOOOOVEs forest kits :D
[19:33] <UMP-45> Now...I'm sure you all have lots and lots of questions for us...
[19:33] * UMP-9 smacks HK-416 on the back of her head with the script folder.
[19:33] * Michelle O`Cain drops a Forest Kit on 416's head
[19:34] <HK-416> Thank you, 9. I think a loop had begun to form.
[19:34] <HK-416> O___O
[19:34] <Forest Kits> >:3
[19:34] * HK-416 quickly slumps to the ground within seconds of the Forest Kit being placed atop her head, a beatific and stupefied smile forming on her normally stern face as she sinks down.
[19:35] <Michelle O`Cain> There. ^_^
[19:35] <UMP-9> Hmmmm, excuse me little Foxes.
[19:36] <Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[19:36] <Megan O`Cain> Why didn't we do that earlier? It would have saved us so much trouble. I swear, I was gonna put a bullet in her if she kept that "That is a secret" type bulls hit.
[19:36] * UMP-9 consults the script. "Would you start piling onto and pouncing on HK-416?"
[19:36] <UMP-45> She can't help it. Really, none of us can.
[19:37] <UMP-45> Besides, it's her nature. She *IS* programmed to be a personification of the spirit of a German weapon.
[19:37] <Donovan O`Cain> Is it some sort of blocking mechanism?
[19:38] <UMP-45> You mean the Last Command?
[19:38] <Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[19:38] * Forest Kits all pounce on HK-416
[19:39] <Donovan O`Cain> If you call it that.
[19:40] <UMP-45> It's the primary command we all received that overrides most of our existing command structures. We're all driven to accomplish it, especially after earlier this year.
[19:42] <Donovan O`Cain> Who initiated this Last Command?
[19:43] <UMP-45> Once we received confirmation that the Langister children had been spotted inside the Zone, the Last Command activated in all of us. It had always been there, but it elevated tooooooo
[19:43] <UMP-9> "Strategic Importance Absolute."
[19:44] * UMP-9 is giggling as she watches HK-416 wiggling as she's "assaulted" by the fluffy little foxes bouncing up and down on her.
[19:45] <UMP-45> As for who gave it to us, I'm not exactly sure. Likely it was uploaded into our neural clouds to be downloaded into our data matrices whenever we reconnected to it.
[19:46] <UMP-45> But given how pervasive it is, it likely came from Alliance High Command. The authorization probably came from the upper echelons of their command hierarchy.
[19:48] <UMP-9> Yes...yes! There's a scene in here where the Foxes of Terror do this to some of the characters!
[19:48] <Donovan O`Cain> Is there a way to stop it from completing? I mean, I feel like the Alliance is gonna be nothing but on the losing end of things. Again.
[19:53] * HK-416 is still looking like she's high on drugs as she's pounced and bounced on. :D
[19:54] <UMP-45> I wish I knew.
[19:57] <...> Or MAYBE you all just need to let us carry out our orders and obey the Last Command!
[20:00] <Forest Kits> :O
[20:03] * Megan O`Cain and her cousins turn to face the new voice
[20:04] <...> THIS girl just turned the corner and is walking up to you all.
[20:06] * ... is now known as Negev
[20:07] <UMP-45> Oh F[BLEEP]K!!!
[20:07] <UMP-45> What the f[BLEEP]k is SHE doing here?!
[20:08] <Megan O`Cain> You can kindly piss off.
[20:08] <Negev> Well isn't this sweet! ALLIES OF THE VAN SAAR!
[20:08] <Forest Kits> You MUST fall to the Fluffiness :3
[20:08] <Negev> You're very fortunate that none of us have our weapons right now. The Foxes confiscated and hid all of them.
[20:09] <Negev> I'm still trying to figure out just WHERE they hid them. I've been searching for a week now.
[20:09] <Forest Kits> >:[
[20:10] <Negev> At first I found it a little odd that Squad 404 didn't come back last night, so I came to investigate and found you all leaving.
[20:10] <Negev> And where did you go to? Here to this strange Mansion! What might you all be trying to do, hmmmmmm?
[20:11] <Megan O`Cain> Nothing of your concern.
[20:11] <UMP-45> Yeah, what she said.
[20:11] <Forest Kits> :3
[20:12] <UMP-45> Besides, this place is neutral ground, Negev. You don't want to have another vore experience, do you?
[20:13] <UMP-45> 'Cause I heard you made quite the sight when you finally got pooped out.
[20:14] * Forest Kits giggle lots lots :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D
[20:17] <UMP-45> We call that a "Shizer film"!
[20:17] * Negev browtwitches.
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> Not s[BLEEP]tstorm?
[20:17] <Negev> You didn't answer my question though. Why ARE you here?
[20:18] <Forest Kits> we're PLAYING :D
[20:21] * Negev glances at the Foxes. "I meant the outsiders."
[20:22] <Megan O`Cain> What does it matter to you, anyway? Clearly you're just spoiling for a fight.
[20:26] * Negev grins.
[20:26] <Negev> Maybe I'm not spoiling for a fight as much as I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to obtain some information just like you two are.
[20:27] * HK-416 is trying to slowly crawl away, probably with a bunch of Forest Kits perched on top of her.
[20:30] <Michelle O`Cain> Are you sure of that? You don't know what's going on.
[20:31] <Forest Kits> :3
[20:33] <HK-416> I know you're both affiliated with the MKA, which means you're affiliated with the Van Saar.
[20:33] <HK-416> And I overheard the Last Command being mentioned, so it's likely you're trying to find out more about it.
[20:35] * Megan O`Cain just looks at Negev, "So?"
[20:39] <HK-416> Soooooo
[20:39] <Negev> ^
[20:40] <Negev> In my opinion...let us carry out our orders.
[20:41] <Negev> So we can start ending this conflict on our terms.
[20:42] * Megan O`Cain and her cousins look at each other and then huddle up a la Three Stooges
[20:46] <UMP-45> Yeah...
[20:46] <UMP-45> Negev is...intense to say the least.
[20:46] * Megan O`Cain breaks the huddle, and faces Negev, "Even at the detriment of whatever Alliance is left? I say that because it seems like a losing battle in the first place."
[20:47] * UMP-45 has little Foxes on her shoulders.
[20:47] <Forest Kits> :3
[20:47] <Negev> Hmph. >:f
[20:47] <Negev> We don't have a choice.
[20:48] <Negev> Strategic Importance Absolute!
[20:48] * HK-416 raises her hand up weakly. "Straaategeeeeeec Im-puance Absooooo..."
[20:49] * Megan O`Cain sighs, "Dean?"
[20:50] * Dean appears next to Megan's left shoulder, "Yes, Captain?"
[20:50] * Megan O`Cain points at Negev, "Sic'em."
[20:50] <Dean> Acknowledged.
[20:51] * Dean uses his programming to knock out Negev's cybernetics, or tries to at least
[20:53] *** Roll 1d100 please.
[20:54] <spiritflame> Dean rolls 1d100 [ 87 ]
[21:02] <spiritflame> Negev rolls 1d100 [ 61 ]
[21:02] <Negev> O____o
[21:03] <Dean> Sleep.
[21:04] * Negev seems highly distracted now as her sensory processor goes into a recursive loop, requiring her main AI to reboot and restart it. The effect, in organic terms, would be that she suddenly got very light-headed.
[21:04] <Negev> Uggghhhhh, whaaaaaa?
[21:05] * Dean turns to the others, including the UMPs, "Suggestions? I was thinking she could use some sleep."
[21:06] <Megan O`Cain> Yeah, she looks like she could use a nap.
[21:07] <Michelle O`Cain> Yep. Maybe with a stuffed toy, too.
[21:09] <Forest Kits> and a fluffy friend :D
[21:09] <Donovan O`Cain> She does look tired.
[21:14] <Negev> Okay!
[21:14] * Negev flops to the ground and lays on her back, arms spread, waiting for fluffiness!
[21:14] <UMP-45> That should keep her preoccupied for a while.
[21:15] * Michelle O`Cain giggles a bit
[21:15] <Megan O`Cain> Nice work, Dean.
[21:16] * Forest Kits Swarm Negev :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[21:16] <Dean> You're welcome, Captain. Learning Alliance coding proved beneficial in this case. This will allow talks to remain peaceful.
[21:17] <Michelle O`Cain> If any of the others try to stop us (referring to 404 and the O`Cains), we'll just call naptime. ^_^
[21:18] <Forest Kits> :3
[21:20] <UMP-45> In the meantime, let's grab some dinner!
[21:21] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3 (I wonder if there's anything good around here.)
[21:21] *** UMP-9 has left #suburbansenshi3 (No grilled lamprey stands?)
[21:21] *** HK-416 has left #suburbansenshi3 (Fluuufffff-eeeeeeeeeeeeees~!!")
[21:22] *** Michelle O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (I think the mansion itself might have something.)
[21:22] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Gheeee-heee-heee-heee!!!")
[21:22] *** Donovan O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (We can always check.)
[21:23] *** Megan O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (Only one way to find out.)

[10:25] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Academy City
[10:28] *** A fairly muggy, hazy morning in the bustling city. In a blind alley of District 13, away from the view of the city's cameras and sensors, and woman stands there, seemingly waiting.
[10:32] *** A figure drops down from the rooftop, landing behind the startled woman.
[10:32] <Sailor Europa> I am sorry I am late. I got held up with a boutique robbery.
[10:34] *** the woman nods, getting over her starstruck. She reaches into her pocket and takes out a small item.
[10:37] <Sumomo> These are the findings Anti-Skill have gathered since you and Judgement tipped us off about the electrical bursts.
[10:38] * Sumomo glances at the green and white striped Judgement armband attached to the legendary Sailor Guardian's upper arm. (I still can't believe she's a member of Judgement...)
[10:39] <Sumomo> Our sensors tried their best but a particularly large burst knocked them down for a few hours.
[10:40] * Sumomo hands over the electronic data storage capsule to the younger girl.
[10:40] * Sailor Europa takes it and then pockets it in the dimensional pocket of her skirt
[10:41] <Sailor Europa> I've been doing research as well. Having contacted my informants outside of Academy City shows that the bursts emit a magical aau
[10:42] <Sailor Europa> aura.
[10:42] * Sumono frowns.
[10:42] <Sumono> Do you think Magicians are behind this?
[10:43] <Sailor Europa> I think it is too early to definitively make a decision on who is behind this just yet.
[10:44] <Sailor Europa> Thank you for the information. I will contact you again when I figure out more.
[10:47] <Sumono> Of course.
[10:50] * Sailor Europa nods at the older before leaping upwards and landing on the roof of the 1l5 story building beside them. She waits a moment before peering over the edge to watch the woman walk away from their meeting spot.
[10:51] * Sailor Europa fingers the capsule in the pco
[10:52] * Sailor Europa fingers the capsule in the pocket of her skirt, biting her lip. (Delilha said the appeared in Tokyo as well. Is it a creature on a warpath? )
[10:53] * Sailor Europa begins to leap from rooftop to rooftop, making her way back to Nagatenjouki Middle School.
[10:55] <Sailor Europa> (Should we ask Tamiko Denji to take a look? I hope it isn't too dangerous for her.)
[10:58] *** The legendary sailor guardian of Academy City finds herself thinking about this recent trouble throughout the rest of her day. Her deepest fear is Gren-gar has come back somehow, though she will never admit it. Not even to her loved ones. She needs to remain a strong, pillar of support for her family. She can't be a burden to them. She will dig down to the root of this new evil and eradicate it.

[19:58] *** M16A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M16A1
[19:58] *** David O`Cain [] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa David O`Cain
[19:58] *** David O`Cain has turned their sound on
[19:59] * M16A1 takes a deep breath before holding out the memory crystal
[20:00] * David O`Cain takes the memory crystal and installs it into the data slate
[20:00] <David O`Cain> Let's see what's on here.
[20:01] <M16A1> This contains a compilation of footage obtained from various sources. Some of it from Alliance ships and others from T-Dolls and soldiers on the ground.
[20:01] <David O`Cain> Alright.
[20:02] *** The holographic displays start to warm up and access the data, decoding and sorting it.
[20:02] * David O`Cain looks through the files
[20:04] *** A long image file starts to play, showing a massive city under heavy attack. Fires burn out of control, explosions rip through everything, the sky is on fire, and even the local sun has been partially blotted out by something in the atmosphere.
[20:04] <David O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:05] <M16A1> This is the defeat that ended all hope for the Alliance. Their lofty idealism died screaming here, only to be replaced by desperation of the worst kind.
[20:06] *** The image starts to focus on a section of the city where the fighting is unbelievably fierce, where an Alliance ground force that outnumbers its foes over twenty to one is being absolutely slaughtered...
[20:07] * David O`Cain continues watching
[20:08] *** Nothing they can do can even slow down the attackers. YOu see freeze-frame images of the inhabitants dying left and right, some of them with gory holes blown through them by gauss shards, and others exploded from the inside by boltguns.
[20:09] <M16A1> And leading that attack was a creature drenched in more blood than you could ever possibly imagine. A creature that heralded utter and absolute silence.
[20:11] *** The image zooms in further to show the ones leading the charge: Ghost Fox Space Marines and regular soldiers who all appeared to be fighting on despite taking terrible physical injuries. And in the heart of them you see...
[20:14] *** ...a young woman in a Pink Delmo uniform that looks like she has a bullet wound through her forehead, a man dressed in a Van Saar hostile environment suit that looks like he shouldn't even be standing with how sick he looks, a female Ghost Fox in Sororitas armor clutching a Force-staff ears? OH GOD, THAT'S ALEXIANNA AS AN ADULT!!!! And...
[20:16] *** And what looks like a young Human boy with lush, unruly copper-colored hair, wearing a rugged hooded leather cloak and surrounded by a thick mist of ebon energy. His eyes glow with the same color, and it skin looks deathly pale, so much so that the inflamed blood vessels are visible.
[20:16] <M16A1> And that creature was known as the Dark Angel of Death.
[20:17] <David O`Cain> Solar.
[20:25] *** The scene switches to the battle footage in high orbit, where several HUNDRED Alliance warships are getting blown apart and shredded. The Ghost Foxes are attacking with their entire fleet, including all TWENTY Battle-barges, but something else is happening as well.
[20:26] *** Many of the Alliance ships seem to be engulfed in dark clouds lit from within by rapid, continuous explosions and the internal fires raging inside the damaged ships through massive hull breaches.
[20:26] <David O`Cain> Mass boarding?
[20:27] *** It takes a few seconds for the images to resolve further, revealing that the "clouds" are actually huge swarms of small attack craft that attack with unbelievable coordination and precision maneuvering that make them seem like a liquid from a distance.
[20:27] <M16A1> No. A new enemy had revealed itself.
[20:28] * David O`Cain tries to get a better look at the new enemy
[20:28] *** Nightgaunts. By the millions. Launched by a dozen Tanar'ri Conqueror-class Carriers.
[20:29] *** The Alliance fleet is just getting SWARMED.
[20:30] <David O`Cain> Heh. Morrigan and her friends.
[20:30] *** The Nightgaunts are also streaming down into the atmosphere, attacking the Alliance city by the hundreds of thousands, filling the skies and blotting out the sun in the process.
[20:33] *** On the ground there's nothing but panic as the city is encircled and attacked on all sides. By the Imperial Guard, by the Ghost Foxes, by Tanar'ri Biomecha that tear through everything like a nightmare, and by thousands of pale T-Dolls dressed in dark revealing clothing and wearing helmets that enclose most of their heads.
[20:35] *** The Alliance is just...losing. And as the Imperial Guard and the Astartes and the Tanar'ri and the Draughr and Sangvis Ferri continue their massacre, there's just one word being shouted out all over the city for everyone to hear.
[20:35] <David O`Cain> Man, that's a massive siege.
[20:36] <M16A1> T__T
[20:37] *** The word was...
[20:37] <...> - EXTERMINATE. -
[20:37] <David O`Cain> Oh god. I sincerely hope that isn't the Daleks.
[20:38] <M16A1> They WERE the Daleks.
[20:38] <M16A1> On that days, they WERE the Daleks.
[20:38] <M16A1> ^day
[20:39] <M16A1> And nothing could even slow them down. Not even us when we were thrown against them in a last-ditch attempt to buy time for an evacuation.
[20:40] <David O`Cain> I see.
[20:44] *** The recording changes scenes to reveal the Griffin T-Doll's defense of the last starport, where they'd set up layer upon layer upon layer of heavy defenses, fighting brutally against repeated attacks by everyone.
[20:45] *** One scene shows none other than Squad 404 blowing up a Leman Russ tank with multiple rocket launchers.
[20:46] *** Another live-footage shown from the POV of the girl herself, shows her rushing through an open battle field to get to an inactive AA cannon, getting to it, and opening fire non-stop, shooting down a Federation Thunderbolt fighter.
[20:47] *** Holy crap, that T-Doll was none other than M16A1 herself!
[20:47] * David O`Cain looks at M16A1
[20:47] <M16A1> T__T
[20:49] * David O`Cain goes back to the video
[20:49] <M16A1> During that battle the Federation smashed aside all resistance and exterminated everyone in their path. No prisoners were taken. At least not LIVING ones.
[20:50] <David O`Cain> Hmm. And of the T-Dolls like you?
[20:50] <M16A1> Then the strangest thing happened. Sangvis Ferri just stopped.
[20:51] <David O`Cain> Really?
[20:51] <M16A1> T-Dolls like me weren't spared either. They blew us away by the thousands. We died, uploaded to the neural cloud, downloaded into a new body, then were sent out into battle again only to be destroyed a short time later.
[20:53] <M16A1> As for Sangvis Ferri, at one point they just ceased all hostilities and just went catatonic.
[20:54] <M16A1> Beak, Executioner, all of them just went silent for a while.
[20:54] <M16A1> Then they withdrew.
[20:56] <M16A1> It was the oddest thing. When they reactivated, many of them just gathered into groups and stared up into the sky. A few of us tried tapping into THEIR neural cloud to find out what was happening with them.
[21:00] <M16A1> We heard.
[21:00] <M16A1> Singing.
[21:02] <David O`Cain> Singing?
[21:04] <M16A1> I...can't explain it any other way.
[21:04] <David O`Cain> I see.
[21:12] <David O`Cain> What was being sung?
[21:13] <M16A1> I don't know. It wasn't words, that's for sure.
[21:13] <M16A1> And yes, I heard it. I developed problems with my neural cloud afterwards.
[21:13] <David O`Cain> Really?
[21:18] <M16A1> It's impossible to put into words, and Beak and Executioner haven't been forthcoming either, but the "song" affected Sangvis Ferri deeply. After they heard it, even though the signal from orbit got cut, they ceased all hostilities and retreated from the war.
[21:18] <David O`Cain> Hmm.
[21:18] * David O`Cain tries to see if he can find where the song is playing
[21:25] *** The recording shows something VERY strange. It shows one scene where a group of civilians have been surrounded in a rubble-strewn street by dozens of Sangvis Ferri T-Dolls. They're in terror and pleading for their lives.
[21:25] *** The SF Dolls take aim, stating "EXTERMINATE". Then...
[21:29] <David O`Cain> ?
[21:30] *** They just stop, then start shuddering, then tilt back their heads as one and start shrieking, but the sound is more like binary code combined with a dial-up modem.
[21:31] *** The low-grade T-Dolls then just cease hostilities and walk away. The HIGH-grade T-Dolls, the "Ringleaders", react much differently.
[21:32] <David O`Cain> Hmm...
[21:32] *** There are images of Beak, Executioner, and others (wow, one of them looks like an older version of Catriona too!) sit on the ground in a daze, looking up at the sky at something unseen, like they just had a religious experience.
[21:33] <David O`Cain> (Interesting.)
[21:38] *** After that, the main recording ends, but there are plenty of smaller ones. Many of them are about various individual Griffin T-Dolls.
[21:40] <David O`Cain> Huh. I'm not real sure if I heard the song in that last video.
[21:45] <M16A1> I don't know either. I really can't describe it in words to you.
[21:45] * M16A1 looks at her timepiece. "I must go for now. You can keep the data crystal if you wish."
[21:46] <David O`Cain> Thanks.
[21:47] <David O`Cain> I'll see this gets to my sister, and Solar. Perhaps they'll find info on this crystal.
[21:50] <M16A1> Solarchos. The Onryo, you mean.
[21:51] <M16A1> You don't fear him at all?
[21:52] <David O`Cain> Solarchos, Onryo. It's the same guy to me. Why would I fear him? He and I have been friends for at least a decade.
[21:56] * M16A1 nods. "Then I will say no more on the matter."
[21:56] <M16A1> Good evening to you.

[08:47] *** Sitting in her office in the Theater Department, 37 year old Euri Inochi, mother of three, girlfriend to Matsumi Kaze, gazes out the window whilst sipping her morning tea.
[08:50] *** A whirlwind of thoughts blows through her mind. Alice, the young woman whose soul she saved all those years, comments helpfully within her Mind. Euri often listens to what Alice has to say and finds herself lonesome when the mysterious girl leaves for her corporeal form.
[08:51] * Euri Inochi hears the chime of Mugen Academy's nine o'clock class starting in ten minutes.
[08:52] * Euri Inochi sighs lonesomely to herself after finishing off her tea.
[08:53] <Euri Inochi> I'm glad I was able to deal with that astrophysics student's experiment gone way before needing to involve anyone else.
[08:53] <Euri Inochi> I know what happened the last time an interdimensional creature was let loose from Mugen Academy.
[08:55] * Euri Inochi shakes her head ruefully, remembering the fight she had in the tower observatory.
[08:55] * Euri Inochi gets to her feet and gathers her belongings for her first class of the day; Acting 201.
[08:56] <Euri Inochi> (It's times like those that make me worry for Hachi and Delilha.)
[08:57] <Euri Inochi> (Out there nearly every day on patrol as Sailor Guardians...)
[08:58] <Euri Inochi> There are so many of us now that I wonder if they even need to be so vigilant. Why not take turns? Have a schedule?
[09:00] * Euri Inochi glances at the picture of her three children on her desk before walking to her door to leave.
[09:00] <Euri Inochi> (At least Nobu isn't involved in anything dangerous.. Thank goodness.)
[09:01] *** Kizoku "Euri" Inochi leaves her office, shutting and locking the door behind her as she makes her way to teach her handful of students.

[19:20] *** Meanwhile, in Gensokyo
[19:20] * UMP-9 is lying on her back in the courtyard of the SDM, covered with Forest Foxes. XD
[19:21] <Forest Kits> :3
[19:26] <HK-416> :D
[19:26] * HK-416 tries to crawl out from underneath the Kit pile she's under.
[19:30] * Michelle O`Cain is sitting at a table with one of the Forest Kits sitting on her lap, and is sipping from a mug of tea
[19:30] * Megan O`Cain and Donovan are at the same table as well enjoying their cups of tea
[19:33] <UMP-45> :3
[19:33] <UMP-45> So, what more do you all want from us?
[19:36] <Megan O`Cain> For starters, preventing your commander's objective to be complete. There must be a way or two or more to make a workaround.
[19:40] <UMP-45> I don't know. Ultimately, the best way would be to purge us of the Last Command. But I'm not sure how that would be done.
[19:40] * UMP-9 directs the Forest Kits to "attack" HK-416!
[19:42] <Megan O`Cain> I see. It sounds like we would need to go to The Zone, and take out the source of that Last Command.
[19:42] <Donovan O`Cain> Yeah, looks that way.

[19:43] <Sakuya Izayoi> May I get you anything more?
[19:46] <Forest Kits> >:3
[19:49] <Michelle O`Cain> More tea, please. ^_^
[19:49] <Sakuya Izayoi> Or would you like me to eliminate these Alliance cyber-whores? ^__^
[19:50] * HK-416 flails as she's "attacked" vigorously!!
[19:52] <Megan O`Cain> I don't think it'll be necessay, Sakuya. These T-dolls struck a deal with the Forest Kits.
[19:54] <Sakuya Izayoi> The Forest Kits are certain that deal will be honored?
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> So far they have.
[19:57] <Forest Kits> :3
[19:57] <UMP-45> And what exactly do you want from US though?
[20:00] <Megan O`Cain> Well, you mentioned before you don't want to fight anymore. Perhaps help stop the Last Command from the inside?
[20:01] <UMP-45> The only way to do that would be to go back to the Zone. Or maybe purge our own neural cloud? But that would only work for as long as we remained unlinked from the Griffin networks.
[20:03] <Megan O`Cain> Hmmm.
[20:07] <Megan O`Cain> This is proving harder than I thought.
[20:07] <UMP-45> How so?
[20:12] * Sakuya Izayoi goes over to the playful Forest Kits. "And you, would any of you like anything?"
[20:14] <Megan O`Cain> Well, I'm beginning to run out of ideas.
[20:15] <UMP-45> Well, you know where we came from. You could always return to the Zone.
[20:16] <Forest Kits> we want lamprey! :D
[20:17] <Forest Kits> :O
[20:17] <Forest Kits> we help? :D
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> How so, little guys?
[20:21] <UMP-45> Are you sure?
[20:22] * Forest Kits trot off and come back in langister-like outfits :D :3 :D :3
[20:25] <UMP-45> Ummm, who are you supposed to be dressed up as?
[20:26] <UMP-45> Are those...hostile environment suits?
[20:31] <Megan O`Cain> Looks like it. How did they get them, though?
[20:32] <Forest Kits> Lookalikes! :D
[20:33] <UMP-45> So what ARE you little ones planning?
[20:38] <UMP-45> Do you want to go with everyone to the Zone?
[20:39] <Forest Kits> to fool :D
[20:39] <Forest Kits> :3
[20:39] <Forest Kits> :3
[20:41] <UMP-45> Wait...
[20:41] <UMP-45> You want to IMPERSONATE the Langister children to serve as DECOYS?
[20:42] <Megan O`Cain> Huh. It might work to draw them out.
[20:43] <Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[20:43] <Donovan O`Cain> If so, we can move in, and erase the Last Command.
[20:46] <UMP-45> It'd be dangerous as anything.
[20:55] <UMP-45> Are you SURE you want to risk something like this?
[20:55] <Michelle O`Cain> Yeah. We don't want you to get hurt.
[20:58] <Forest Kits> we be so cute, they no want to attack :D
[21:00] <UMP-9> Our orders don't involve hurting them. We'd just be bringing them to a different location and await further orders.
[21:00] * Michelle O`Cain gently scratches the Forest Kit on her lap between its ears
[21:01] <Forest Kits> :O
[21:01] * Forest Kits trill a little sing-a-long
[21:07] * Megan O`Cain and her cousins look at the Forest Kits
[21:08] * Forest Kits are trilling to the tune of "blow down the mountain", then going forward to "ABC/Twinklex2 little star"
[21:13] <Michelle O`Cain> Awwww. ^_^
[21:14] <UMP-9> So cute~!!
[21:15] <UMP-45> We can try it.
[21:18] <Sakuya Izayoi> Also, the way back to the Outside is ready should you wish to depart tonight.
[21:18] <Michelle O`Cain> Hope it's a great ruse to fool them.

[17:21] <Eliza McIntash> ????
[17:21] <Eliza McIntash> Wow... huh... I didn't...
[17:21] <Eliza McIntash> Sure didn't expect that.

[17:23] <Eliza McIntash> ^_^
[17:24] * Eliza McIntash relaxes and breathes again, in quiet contemplation.
[17:29] <Eliza McIntash> Mmmmmmmm....
[17:32] * Eliza McIntash thinks, contemplating where she is.
[17:38] * Eliza McIntash flinches momentarily, and then stretches, taking a very deep breath of the air in the tube.
[17:47] * Eliza McIntash breathes again, softly, thinking about where the air and food and water come from and go.

[17:56] <Eliza McIntash> .....

[21:11] <D. Kakaku> This.... is SEALAB... a new underwater research facility.
[21:12] <D. Kakaku> researchers and their families will be living here, picked from a list of qualified candidates.
[21:13] <David O`Cain> (Hey, when did this become Adult Swim?)
[21:13] <David O`Cain> - (Does it matter? Plenty of influence, and all.) -
[21:15] <D. Kakaku> I've been told that a somewhat new ability has been added so that it can still be useful after its use ends... I'm not sure what it is yet.

[22:17] <David O`Cain> What...what caused that explosion?
[22:18] *** Black magic begins to severely exude from the remains as the structure begins to reform itself.
[22:18] <D. Kakaku> I did not have destruction of the facility in mind.
[22:20] <D. Kakaku> ... what a minute... what's happening?
[22:23] <David O`Cain> It's being put back together?
[22:24] *** some of the structures are reforming form the skeletal structure... other parts however, run out of black magic very quickly and are not able to fully be reform.
[22:25] <Kiyoshi Shin> ..well now
[22:27] <D. Kakaku> well, I didn't expect this... but it doesn't look like it can be completely put back together.
[22:30] *** some of the other pieces of the structure are now running out of Black magic and can't form back into one structure.
[22:35] <D. Kakaku> well, it doesn't look like we can make the deadline now.

[20:52] <David O`Cain> I see.
[21:03] <Scientist> not exactly, if we can capture a few of the Kouma roaming around this facility, we could grind their guts to make a BlackMagic coating to restore the structure, it seems that 2.5 liters didn't cut it, I'll be upping the post-explosion dose to 5 liters.
[21:03] <D. Kakaku> how did you get here and what did you say?
[21:13] <Kiyoshi Shin> hm?
[21:16] <Scientist> *sigh* I said if we can get enough kouma and crush them into a fine powder or liquid, about 1 per liter, we might be able to comepltely reform the structure back to what it was before it exploded.
[21:23] <D. Kakaku> 5 Kouma for every liter of whatevercoating you used to rest... partially restore the structure?
[21:24] <David O`Cain> How big?
[21:26] <David O`Cain> I mean, how big were these Kouma?
[21:28] <Scientist> we aare talking about 3-4 feet kouma.
[21:37] *** speak of the devil, it looks like 5 of them have been spotted in various parts of the facility... and since the DM is getting sleepy, we'll speed this up by skipping 5 battles and just say all 5 are rounded up.
[21:50] <David O`Cain> Got'em.
[21:55] * Scientist grabs one of the Kouma ang drags it to a chamber, throwing it inside.
[21:56] <Scientist> and now, we extract its blackmagic essence.
[22:05] * Scientist activates an apparatus which begins to crush and pick apart the kouma into something resembling tar before separating into a powder and a liquid.
[22:06] <David O`Cain> So, that's it?
[22:08] <Scientist> yes, but only this machine can do that.
[22:34] * Scientist starts doing it to the 4 other Kouma, and finally, the 5 liters of BlackMagic essence is produced.
[23:09] <Scientist> there we go, all done.
[23:12] * Scientist turns on an industrial fan, pouring the 5 liters into its airflow, sprinkling it over the not quite healed structure of Sealab.
[23:13] * Kiyoshi Shin blinks
[23:15] *** the structure resumes healing itself.. about 20 minutes later, it's back in a state whereyou would never be able to tell that it exploded at all.
[23:15] <D. Kakaku> well, I'll be amazed.
[23:16] <Scientist> applications could include: reconditioning war equipment, reparation of skyscraper damage.
[23:17] <D. Kakaku> I think it's best to keep it to sealab for a while.
[23:23] <David O`Cain> Interesting.
[23:27] <D. Kakaku> well, what do you guys think of it?
[23:36] <David O`Cain> I guess it sorta helps cut down the Kouma population?
[23:59] <D. Kakaku> since you've seen what this thing is, I think it's time for the public unveiling, meanwhile, you all can get some sleep.
[00:06] <David O`Cain> Okay, man.
[00:11] <D. Kakaku> there are a few suites rented out in nearby Phoenix./part plus, the unveiling will be taking place there.
[00:11] *** D. Kakaku has left #suburbansenshi3 (Yeah! Let's go!)

[15:56] * YingGirl looks at a costume she bought while shopping
[15:57] <YingGirl> at least i can try to go to the event
[15:57] <YingGirl> and not skin a kit and those annoyances
[15:58] * YingGirl pops two advil as she sits at Dante's desk
[15:58] <YingGirl> where the hell are you
[16:07] * YingGirl sighs. Hates going to the Hotel.
[16:08] * YingGirl hears the dead silence in the office

[19:58] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Secret Basement where Eliza is kept
[19:58] * Eliza McIntash [Headphones] breathes hard, sweating.
[19:59] * Eliza McIntash [Headphones] closes her eyes tightly, concentrating as hard as she possibly can, trying to summon every ounce of strength she has...
[19:59] <Eliza McIntash> [Headphones] I can do this.
[19:59] <Eliza McIntash> [Headphones] I can do this.
[19:59] <Eliza McIntash> [Headphones] I've been preparing for this for months.
[19:59] <Eliza McIntash> [Headphones] Even if I lose, I still win.
[19:59] <Eliza McIntash> [Headphones] It's okay.
[20:00] * Eliza McIntash [Headphones] chants and breathes quietly, but the sweat drips from her body from the tension...
[20:01] * Eliza McIntash [Headphones] 's eyes fly open. "She is here."

[20:05] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: The Harvest Demiplane
[20:06] *** The gate leads to a world of fields and mist and gourds and stacked hay and berries set upon slabs of obsidian, rose-colored granite, and elaborate vistas of mosses under an autumn twilight
[20:07] *** Megan Smithson finds herself in the cent of worked wood, cut cedar, and baskets of ripe apples.
[20:07] *** Vines drape from overhead to form swings and hammocks that are festooned with growing berries you can eat without even moving.
[20:08] *** has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:08] <@spiritflame> konbanwa *** Happy Birthday, Doctor Xadium!!
[20:08] <Megan Smithson> ^
[20:08] * Megan Smithson looks around, examining the apples and plants
[20:10] *** The apples are all ripe and delicious-looking, coming in many colors
[20:11] <Megan Smithson> hello? is anyone here?
[20:12] * Anesha steps into this demiplane, her nature-affinity going to work in examing this place.
[20:12] <A woman's voice> Yes. I made this place.
[20:12] <Megan Smithson> oh!
[20:12] * Megan Smithson looks around
[20:13] * A woman's voice comes from behind one of the two waterfalls opposite of one another, where lights blink behind it like beckoning fireflies.
[20:13] <A woman's voice> I thought I should invite people here to talk to them, so they do not get the wrong idea.
[20:14] <A woman's voice> A social. An ice-breaker, if you want.
[20:14] <Megan Smithson> oh I see
[20:14] <A woman's voice> Eat all you want. Stay a while if you want to. I thought it would be best to try to get to know people, instead of starting things off wrong.
[20:14] <Megan Smithson> it's..rather awkward simply speaking to a voice
[20:14] * Megan Smithson pauses and picks up an apple, looking it over
[20:15] <A woman's voice> ....I suppose that is true.
[20:15] * Megan Smithson tries to place the type
[20:15] *** A woman in a green, white, and aqua serafuku with bright red hair, an energetic young face, and narrow and wary eyes walks out of the waterfall.
[20:16] <Megan Smithson> hello..who are you?
[20:17] *** The woman walks out of the waterfall, but she doesn't seem to get wet. She has rings on her fingers and a dagger in her belt.
[20:17] <Young woman> My name.... is Sailor Enclave.
[20:17] * Young woman is now known as Sailor Enclave
[20:18] <Megan Smithson> hello...I'm Megan Smithson
[20:19] <Sailor Enclave> It is nice to meet you, Megan.
[20:19] * Sailor Enclave looks at Megan Smithson.
[20:19] *** Megan Smithson is young woman with wavy long brown hair that covers one of her eyes. She wears glasses, has brown eyes and a kind smile. She is Matsumi and Joanna's mother. She stands at around 6'3
Her image Song is: . She is Level 1.

[20:20] <Sailor Enclave> I must say, you do not seem to be one of the folk I expected to respond to my invitation, but I meant it in good faith, and you are welcome all the same.
[20:20] * Sailor Enclave turns to Anesha. "Your appearance is much more in line with what I was expecting."
[20:20] <Anesha> (Had a figuring it was this one.) Have to say, you certainly went a bit extravagant for a simple meet and greet.
[20:20] <Sailor Enclave> What is worth doing is worth doing well.
[20:21] <Megan Smithson> now what does that mean
[20:21] <Sailor Enclave> Besides, boring parties suck, and for those who do NOT know me, I thought it would be helpful to understand what I am.
[20:22] <Sailor Enclave> And besides, I do not consider such extravagant. Not really.
[20:22] <Sailor Enclave> I did want to make people feel welcome, though. Food helps to do that.
[20:22] * Sailor Enclave plops down on one of the hammocks and eats some of the berries.
[20:23] * Megan Smithson looks for a place to sit and sits down, taking a bite of the apple
[20:24] * Sailor Enclave breaks a nut open with her heel, and pops it into her mouth.
[20:25] <Sailor Enclave> I do hope I answered your question about "what does that mean." This isn't supposed to be some kind of awkward interrogation. Enjoy yourself.
[20:25] <Sailor Enclave> That was my intent, anyway.
[20:25] * Sailor Enclave shrugs.
[20:25] * Anesha kicks back as she summons vines of her own to form a seat for herself.
[20:26] <Megan Smithson> well it is quite pleasent
[20:26] * Sailor Enclave only rolls her eyes the tiniest bit at Anesha's making her own furnishings.
[20:27] <Sailor Enclave> I appreciate that.
[20:27] <Sailor Enclave> It's magic!
[20:27] <Sailor Enclave> Enjoy it to the fullest.
[20:28] * Sailor Enclave picks up a mushroom that has a little bit of water in the top. She drinks the water, then starts eating the mushroom.
[20:28] <Sailor Enclave> So tell me, Megan Smithson, why did you come here?
[20:30] <Megan Smithson> I'm not seemed interesting...
[20:30] <Sailor Enclave> Well, interesting things can be important. I figure some people might not go through because they would be afraid of what they hadn't seen before.
[20:30] <Sailor Enclave> I suppose that doesn't apply to you.
[20:31] * Sailor Enclave lays on her back and looks up into the endless twilight and smells the plants. "At least, not in this particular case."
[20:31] <Megan Smithson> I lived through the 60s....those were interesting times ^^;;
[20:32] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:32] <@spiritflame> konbanwa D. Kakaku *** Happy Birthday, Doctor Xadium!!
[20:32] <Sailor Enclave> I'll take your word for it. I don't think there are many times that are not interesting.
[20:32] <Sailor Enclave> Certainly not to the people that experience them.
[20:33] <D. Kakaku> what is this place?
[20:33] <Sailor Enclave> It is whatever you wish it to be!
[20:34] <Sailor Enclave> It has food and water and rest and twilight and, hopefully, good company.
[20:34] <Sailor Enclave> You will notice that there is the moss and the trees and the plants and pools of water that are fed by those two waterfalls. They are as far as you can go, except to and from the other world through that gate.
[20:35] * Sailor Enclave picks up a pile of grain and picks up a Hazelnut. She hesitates, and chooses a chestnut instead.
[20:35] <Sailor Enclave> Mmmmm.
[20:36] <Sailor Enclave> So what did you hope to find here, young man? We are simply meeting and talking; getting to know one another.
[20:36] * Sailor Enclave looks at D. Kakaku.
[20:36] *** D. Kakaku is a 23 year old New Jersey native with sun-streaked light brown hair, blue eyes, and a lightly tanned complexion. A portly young man, he's never seen without his trusty black satchel,He enjoys collecting video games and animating. More information about him is Here.
His image Song is: Carry on My Wayward Son, by Kansas. He is Level 1.

[20:37] <D. Kakaku> well, I thought there might be something interesting through the portal, so I stopped by.
[20:39] <Sailor Enclave> Well, I hope my works meet your criteria for what is interesting?
[20:39] <Sailor Enclave> I thought that inviting people to speak to me would be a wise course of action. Thank you all for accepting my hospitality.
[20:40] <Anesha> So then... what precisely were you looking to speak about?
[20:40] <D. Kakaku> basically, anything out of the norm.
[20:41] <Sailor Enclave> Anything at all, really.
[20:41] <Megan Smithson> is there any coffee here?
[20:42] <Sailor Enclave> Coffee....
[20:42] <Sailor Enclave> Unlikely.
[20:42] <Sailor Enclave> I did not consider such.
[20:42] <Sailor Enclave> I suppose, next time, I'll try to include something with a little zip to it when I make the plane.
[20:43] <Sailor Enclave> I don't regret that I didn't design the plane with stimulants in mind. I was concerned people wouldn't trust me.
[20:43] <Sailor Enclave> Best to just enjoy the standard fare, hospital-food style!
[20:43] * Sailor Enclave eats a green apple.
[20:43] <Sailor Enclave> What do I want to talk about?
[20:44] <Sailor Enclave> Eh, I want us all to have less to fear from one another after we finish than before we began. I hoped just getting to know one another, communication and all that, would help.
[20:45] <Anesha> Well then, here's one to think on -- what precisely are your goals?
[20:46] <D. Kakaku> short or long term?
[20:46] <Sailor Enclave> ......
[20:46] <Sailor Enclave> Not dying.
[20:46] <Sailor Enclave> That's the main one.
[20:46] <Sailor Enclave> In an environment where just existing can be cause for contention, my main goal is not to die.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> .....but....
[20:47] * Anesha raises an eyebrow to that.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> Even that is secondary.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> I am a Sailor Senshi.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> I AM Enclave. It's people, and its power and its soul, and its future.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> I will defend Enclave from whatever would harm it.
[20:47] <Sailor Enclave> I am the soldier of desperation.
[20:48] <Megan Smithson> oh like my daughter
[20:48] <Sailor Enclave> Those who do not threaten me or persecute those I hold in my protection have little to fear from me.
[20:50] * Sailor Enclave turns to look at Megan Smithson
[20:50] <Sailor Enclave> Your daughter?
[20:51] * Sailor Enclave looks at her closely.
[20:51] <Megan Smithson> um yes
[20:51] <Megan Smithson> my daughter is a sailor senshi
[20:51] *** Megan O`Cain has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:51] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Megan O`Cain *** Happy Birthday, Doctor Xadium!!
[20:51] * Megan O`Cain and David both enter the area
[20:53] <Megan O`Cain> Hey, guys.
[20:53] <Sailor Enclave> Fascinating.
[20:53] <Sailor Enclave> How did you find out your daughter was a Sailor Senshi?
[20:53] <David O`Cain> Evening, folks.
[20:54] <Sailor Enclave> Welcome to the Harvester's Demiplane! Sit down, eat, and enjoy yourself!
[20:54] *** There are slabs of unworked stone covered in apples, nuts, and grain soaking in water. The scent of apples, fruits, people's breath, and the harvest is in the air.
[20:55] <David O`Cain> Nice place.
[20:55] *** Waterfalls to your left and right are formed from cataracts that pour from high overhead in the unending twilight.
[20:55] <Sailor Enclave> I appreciate that.
[20:56] <Megan Smithson> well....
[20:56] <Megan Smithson> she told me
[20:58] <Sailor Enclave> Now THAT is trust.
[20:58] <Sailor Enclave> Many, quite likely, would not have their family know of the supernatural fights they must face.
[20:59] <Sailor Enclave> Do you worry that your daughter my perish in her battles as a Sailor Senshi?
[20:59] * Sailor Enclave eats a pear.
[21:00] * David O`Cain and Megan find themselves seats
[21:00] <Megan Smithson> of course I do
[21:03] * Sailor Enclave directs David and Megan to some vines that hang down from trees which are twisted into the shape of swings and hammocks for their convenience.
[21:03] *** Some of the hammocks have edible berries and fungi growing right on them!
[21:03] <Sailor Enclave> Such is the nature of attachment to others.
[21:03] <Sailor Enclave> I'm sure you are proud of what she stands for.
[21:03] <Sailor Enclave> Well.
[21:03] * Sailor Enclave thinks about it.
[21:03] <Sailor Enclave> Most likely you are.
[21:04] <Sailor Enclave> Not all Sailor Soldiers embody or guard things that everybody is extremely keen on.
[21:05] * Sailor Enclave takes a deep breath, and dips a dried apricot into some honey. She licks her fingers after putting it into her mouth.
[21:06] <Megan Smithson> but she's also a grown woman and I respect her decisions
[21:07] * Sailor Enclave nods.
[21:07] <Sailor Enclave> 'sfunny.
[21:07] <Sailor Enclave> Did her awakening come late, or is she just a long-term veteran?
[21:07] <Sailor Enclave> Most sailor senshi do not start out as adults?
[21:07] <Sailor Enclave> I think this, but I could be wrong.
[21:08] <Megan Smithson> well I didn't know that then
[21:08] <Sailor Enclave> Is everybody having a pleasant time, by the way?
[21:08] * Megan O`Cain takes out her e-kiseru, takes a puff, and exhales water vapor
[21:08] <Megan Smithson> she apparently started when she was 15...
[21:08] <Sailor Enclave> Heh, I'll take that as a yes.
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> I'm having a good time, yes
[21:08] * Sailor Enclave turns to listen to Megan Smithson's story.
[21:08] <Sailor Enclave> Splendid. I'm glad I could show you all a good day while we interact peacably!
[21:09] <Sailor Enclave> Er... go on?
[21:09] * Sailor Enclave gestures to Megan Smithson
[21:09] <Megan Smithson> she hid it from us at the time
[21:09] <Megan Smithson> then when she moved to Japan..
[21:11] * Sailor Enclave narrows her eyes, listening. She tosses an apple core away and it lands in a pool of water with a splash.
[21:12] <Megan Smithson> I didn't see her for several years
[21:14] <Sailor Enclave> Such is the life of most soildiers, though. Even supernatural magical destined ones.
[21:14] * Sailor Enclave strokes her chin.
[21:17] <Sailor Enclave> I would ask, then, if you have come to peace with it now?
[21:20] <Megan Smithson> oh yes I am
[21:22] <Sailor Enclave> Good... good.
[21:22] <Sailor Enclave> Just so you know... this reality is going to break apart in just a few minutes.
[21:23] <Megan O`Cain> Oh?
[21:23] <Sailor Enclave> You might want to have a few last bites and wrap up the conversations. It was lovely getting to meet with you, but every reality is finite.
[21:23] <D. Kakaku> why?
[21:23] * Sailor Enclave nods to Megan O`Cain. "Yes."
[21:24] <Sailor Enclave> Why what? Why are all realities finite?
[21:24] <Sailor Enclave> Or why is this one going to break now?
[21:24] * Sailor Enclave plops down off of the hammock where she was resting. "I can really only help you with one."
[21:24] <Sailor Enclave> ^_^
[21:24] <D. Kakaku> second one
[21:25] <Sailor Enclave> Ah.
[21:25] <Sailor Enclave> Because....
[21:26] * Sailor Enclave gets a little bit quieter. "Because in order for magic to endure forever... to enjoy or create anything that can endure forever, or even for a long time... there must be sacrifice."
[21:26] <D. Kakaku> ohh
[21:27] <Megan O`Cain> Well, if this space is going to collapse, I guess it's back to the Hotel.
[21:27] <Anesha> 'Til then.
[21:27] <Sailor Enclave> And while I am struck by your appreciation for the place I made for us to meet, I didn't intend it to last forever---that would require vast effort. Easy come, easy go.
[21:27] <Sailor Enclave> Thanks for your visit.
[21:27] <Sailor Enclave> I'll perhaps have another get together another month or something.
[21:27] <Megan Smithson> oh it is a pleasure!
[21:27] <Sailor Enclave> Enjoy yourselves!
[21:28] * Sailor Enclave ushers people back through the Gate, which leads to ss2
[21:28] <Megan O`Cain> Perhaps you could visit us instead.
[21:28] <D. Kakaku> yeah
[21:28] * Megan O`Cain and David proceed to leave
[21:28] <D. Kakaku> anyways, I'll see you all around
[21:29] *** Anesha [VineWhisperer@Makai.dw] has left #suburbansenshi3 (*with a shuffling of vines, she's on her way out*)

[23:40] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte carefully reaches towards a cane resting near her chair
[23:43] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte unsheathes a sword from the cane and spins around, pointing it at a maid, who stands there not blinking
[23:43] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte>'s simply you

[23:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ....I wonder what you would say to all this
[23:56] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte frowns..glancing from side to side...looking among the shadows

[00:01] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> there are indeed dark shadows rising.....

[22:26] * Eliza McIntash sweats, and continues to do so enough to soak herself, if it were not for the machines that regulate the air and humidity where she is being held.
[22:26] <Eliza McIntash> Got to be strong.
[22:26] <Eliza McIntash> Got to be Strong...
[22:27] * Eliza McIntash concentrates, her face so intense that it is barely recognizable.
[22:28] <Eliza McIntash> I can do it.
[22:28] <Eliza McIntash> I can fight her when she returns to my body...
[22:29] <Eliza McIntash> I will be strong.
[22:29] <Eliza McIntash> I will stop her.
[22:29] <Eliza McIntash> >.<
[22:31] * Eliza McIntash suddenly opens her eyes, gasping, and covered in sweat. She realizes she has been trembling.
[22:31] <Eliza McIntash> ....
[22:31] <Eliza McIntash> Okay that's.... enough preparations for now, I guess.

[20:46] <Jupiter Knight> Yo, you okay?
[20:47] <Sailor Triton> h-huh?
[20:47] <Sailor Triton> who are you??
[20:48] <Jupiter Knight> Jupiter Knight, chosen champion of Jupiter. Pleased to meet you. Whom might you be? Haven't fought alongside you before.
[20:49] <Sailor Triton> um I'm Del-....I'm Sailor Triton
[20:51] <Jupiter Knight> Triton huh? That would mean that you are a Satellite Senshi then.
[20:52] <Sailor Triton> yea..yeah i am
[20:55] <Jupiter Knight> I've only met a few of the ones associated with Jupiter. Triton would make me believe you are associated with Neptune.
[20:58] <Jupiter Knight> I apologize that I didn't get here sooner. I was unaware of this happening. However, it looks like you handled yourself quite well.
[21:03] <Sailor Triton>'s alright it was...
[21:03] <Sailor Triton> scary...
[21:04] <Jupiter Knight> Have you fought alongside anyone else or have you been by yourself since you awoke as Triton?
[21:05] <Sailor Triton> um..I..I didn't..awake
[21:05] <Sailor Triton> with others
[21:07] <Jupiter Knight> It's okay. Breathe in slowly and exhale slowly. I'm not going to allow anything to happen to you.
[21:08] <Jupiter Knight> I am curious where your allies were though.
[21:08] <Sailor Triton> I..fought..alone
[21:09] <Jupiter Knight> I understand that. I mean didn't you call for backup?
[21:10] <Sailor Triton> ....
[21:10] * Sailor Triton looks like she realized suddenly she could do that
[21:12] <Sailor Triton> o..oh oops
[21:12] * Jupiter Knight chuckles a bit.
[21:12] <Jupiter Knight> You have to be careful about fighting alone. If the fight went badly for you and I wasn't able to make it in time, it could have been a very costly mistake.
[21:14] <Jupiter Knight> However, you prevailed and it seems these kids will be okay. Fine work out there.
[21:15] <Sailor Triton> o..oh thank you!
[21:17] <Jupiter Knight> Of course.
[21:23] <Sailor Triton> OH GEEZ I should get home!
[21:25] <Sailor Triton> mom and mama will be onwdering where I am >>
[21:28] <Jupiter Knight> Need a lift? I could help you get back there faster. You don't have to tell me the house, just the neighbor and I'll get you teleported there in an instant.
[21:30] <Sailor Triton> oh!
[21:30] <Sailor Triton> I'm at The Hotel
[21:32] <Jupiter Knight> The HOTEL? And I haven't seen you yet? Intriguing. Alright, hold on, we will go back together then.
[21:32] <Sailor Triton> hold on??
[21:32] <Jupiter Knight> Kamenari Ryu, two for point-to-point transport back to the lobby of the HOTEL.

[20:10] * G-11 looks like she's...convulsing? Then she stops shuddering so quickly that it's almost startling to see.

[20:14] * Unknown GRABS UMP-9 by the throat with one and and slaps her other hand, palm open, over UMP-9's face. Black metallic-looking liquid quickly spreads out from underneath her hand and seeps quickly into UMP-9's open mouth, nostrils, and ears.
[20:15] <Unknown>!!
[20:15] <Forest Kit> <:O
[20:17] * UMP-9 sounds like she's trying to scream, but instead of a voice what's coming out of her mouth sounds way more like an old dial-up modem sound interspersed with binary code. Suddenly, she stops struggling.
[20:17] <Forest Kit> :<
[20:19] * Unknown releases UMP-9, who stares back at her with a now cold expression that seems completely out-of-place on the face of UMP-9

[20:01] <Forest Kit> where? :O
[20:05] <UMP-45> The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Deep inside of it.
[20:05] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> No! Not the Zone!
[20:05] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Not the place where my siblings were lost inside of a year ago!

[20:26] <UMP-45> Even worse, Intruder is here. The Fox is saying that she used some kind of "goo" to make G-11 and 9 act against them.
[20:27] <UMP-45> Now they seem to be trying to abduct the Langister children. Negev almost got little Natalia right here.
[20:29] <HK-416> That's who was attacking me? I think she was trying to immobilize me to do something else.
[20:30] <Forest Kit> with goo :O
[20:36] <HK-416> Goo?
[20:36] *** Elsewhere, several flares are firing up into the sky.
[20:37] <Negev> THAT'S IT! WE'RE OUT OF TIME! Fall back to the rifts and return to the Zone!!!
[20:38] * Negev leers at "Chibi-Nat" and "Chibi-Alex" in her arms. "NOW...neither one of you had better cause me any trouble. The Commander wants you all ALIVE." >:D

[20:52] <UMP-45> Yeah, that's GOTTA be M2HB down there.
[20:54] <Negev> and THIS GIRL are both laying down serious machine gun fire as the last few T-Dolls fall back towards the rifts. Little "Sylvester" is in the clutches of UMP-9 now.
[20:55] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> :<
[20:56] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> What about the other Forest Kits? Where are they?
[21:00] * The TITAN KIT are rushing to the SDM
[21:00] <The forest KIT> *^
[21:02] *** The AR Squad are the lest to retreat, with M4A1 looking back over her shoulder, looking rather sad and upset.
[21:02] <Negev> NOW! We're out of time!!
[21:03] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Now, little Natalia. Just think of this as a magical adventure into a strange land with Big Sister Negev!" >:D)
[21:03] *** The remaining T-Dolls has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:04] *** M4A1 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Strategic importance absolute... T__T)
[21:05] <The forest KIT> :<
[21:05] <The TITAN KIT> :<
[21:09] * The TITAN KIT trots towards the SDM
[21:13] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> T__T
[21:13] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> They're gone!
[21:13] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Friends were taken away!
[21:15] <Forest Kit> but you be taken away if plan no work :O
[21:15] <Forest Kit> now we plan rescue >:D
[21:16] <UMP-45> You little guys know what you're doing?
[21:16] <HK-416> Wait, we're going to DEFY our orders?!
[21:16] <HK-416> We're going to DEFY the Last Command?! How is that even possible for you? For US?!?
[21:17] <HK-416> We are T-Dolls! It is our purpose to obey our commands!!
[21:17] <Forest Kit> yuppa :3
[21:17] *** The Scarlet Devil Mansion looms straight ahead. it seems like its got quite a few new guests now.
[21:18] <Forest Kit> everything possible with fluffiness :D
[21:20] * The TITAN KIT stops in front of the mansion.
[21:25] *** Standing outside the main gate with Meiling is...
[21:25] *** M16A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:25] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M16A1
[21:27] * The TITAN KIT opens is maw "me save two :O"
[21:31] * HK-416 starts to freak out a little as she sees M16A1
[21:31] <M16A1> I see you all managed to get away unhurt.
[21:33] <UMP-45> What are YOU doing here, M16?
[21:33] <Forest Kit> yuppa :D
[21:33] <M16A1> Helping you.
[21:33] <M16A1> Helping these little Foxes.
[21:34] <M16A1> And helping ALL of us.
[21:34] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Help Friends too?
[21:36] <Forest Kit> yuppa :D
[21:36] <HK-416> Helping all of us HOW exactly? >:[
[21:37] <M16A1> By ENDING this god damned war and destroying Griffin & Kryuger in the process.
[21:37] <M16A1> And YOU are GOING to help me.
[21:40] <HK-416> Destroy...?!
[21:40] <UMP-45> G&K...?!
[21:41] * M16A1 motions for everyone to follow her inside. "We have a lot to discuss and more to prepare if we're going to return to the Zone."
[21:41] *** M16A1 has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:41] *** HK-416 has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:42] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:43] *** And that concludes the event! I hope you all had fun with this next stage of the overall plot.
[21:43] <Forest Kit> (yep)
[19:36] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...
[19:37] *** The Griffin T-Dolls emerge in irregular groups from the dimensional rifts, spat out at unpredictable intervals by the unstable Wormhole Anomalies.
[19:39] *** Everyone has emerged in an area of dank fens, near-stagnant water, and dark plants that look rather unhealthy. The air is humid and cool, carrying on it a scent of rotting foliage, swamp muck, and a faint scent of cordite.
[19:39] *** Negev has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:39] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Negev
[19:40] * Negev takes stock of the twenty or so T-Dolls that successfully made it back with her.
[19:40] <Negev> Good, looks like we're all here.
[19:41] <WA-2000> Was betraying them like that sound strategy?
[19:41] <Negev> It was expedient and we only had a limited window of opportunity. We likely wouldn't have had another chance that good.
[19:42] <Negev> Now, let's take stock...
[19:43] * UMP-9 and G-11 bring forward the three captured Kits. "Chibi-Nat", "Alexianna", and "Sylvester" are still in their fox forms.
[19:46] <UMP-9> Here they are.
[19:48] <G-11> They're not causing us any trouble. For now at least.
[19:49] * Negev crouches down to inspect the three disguised Forest Kits, completely unaware that they're anything other than the Langister children.
[20:03] * Forest Kit s are looking and acting EXACTLY like the langisters they're disguised as :3 :3 :3
[20:04] <Negev> o__o
[20:06] <One of the sniper T-Dolls> moves in closer to take a good look at the little creatures.
[20:06] * Sniper Rifle Doll is now known as Springfield
[20:06] <Springfield> Awwww, aren't they just adorable?
[20:08] * Springfield speaks with a gentle, almost motherly voice with just a hint of a Southern accent. Her green eyes seem rather kind, and her smile is genuine. She smells faintly of gingerbread...and gun oil.
[20:10] * Forest Kit act like the lanngisters they're impersoating to the point of their tricksteriness :D
[20:12] * Springfield and Negev lean in a little closer.
[20:19] * Springfield tries to poke one of the Kits on the nose with her finger. :D
[20:19] * Forest Kit act the same way a langister kit would :3
[20:22] <Springfield> Awwwww! Such a little darling.
[20:22] <Negev> ...
[20:22] <Negev> If you say so.
[20:23] <Negev> Now, where are we exactly?
[20:24] <M2HB> Don't know. I didn't bring a map.
[20:25] * G-11 looks around, her expression oddly alert and focused for a girl so chronically fatigued she has a reputation of being borderline narcoleptic.
[20:28] <G-11> We're about two miles north of Kozubinskoye village.
[20:28] <G-11> About ten miles east of Starukha Lake.
[20:31] * The T-Dolls who'd participated in the attack suddenly look VERY unsettled.
[20:31] <Springfield> That was nowhere near our original entry point.
[20:32] <Negev> Where DID you all originally go through the rifts from?
[20:33] <Springfield> The village of Limensk. We had to slip past Clear Sky to get at the dimensional Anomalies there. In fact we lost Skorpion and SKS there. We managed to retrieve their Cores though.
[20:35] *** The Forest Kits might just know that the faction Clear Sky was also nicknamed "Rabbit Moon" because as of earlier this year it's now made up almost entirely of the survivors of the Lunar Assault Corps. Moon-Rabbits, like Reisen!
[20:40] <Negev> What's the current status of the Zone?
[20:40] * The T-Dolls all spend some time looking up and around, with some of them closing their eyes and listening VERY carefully to the background noises of the Zone.
[20:41] <UMP-9> Cloud cover is thickening in the direction of Chernobyl itself.
[20:44] <WA-2000> I'm sensing higher than normal amounts of ozone in the air.
[20:46] <M2HB> I don't hear anything particularly weird in the distance.
[20:47] <Negev> Still, let's head south to that village and take shelter there until we can check in with HQ AND until the next Emission occurs. it sounds like there'll be one forming in the next several hours anyway.
[20:49] <Negev> Springfield, since YOU seem to like those...animals so much, YOU can take care of them.
[20:49] <Springfield> o__o
[20:49] <Springfield> ^___^
[20:50] * Springfield scoops up all three "Langisters" in her arms. "I'd be delighted!"
[20:51] * Springfield quickly runs a geiger counter over all three of the Kits. "Hmmm, looks like the airborne reactive energy isn't affecting you at all. Maybe it's because you're all in your animal forms. Please remain so during the daytime to ensure you're not exposed to it."
[20:52] * Springfield gets out her field pack, empties it of some miscellaneous gear, and opens up space inside for three tiny (and brave) Forest Foxes to ride inside.
[20:53] * Forest Kit s hop inside to ride!
[20:56] <Springfield> That's good.
[20:57] <Springfield> Keep behaving and don't cause any trouble, okay? I promise I'll keep you all safe by any means necessary.
[20:57] <Springfield> After all, all three of you are very, very important to us!
[20:58] * Springfield lets the Kits drink from some bottled water, then puts several strips of meat jerky (made from a clean source) inside her pack for the Kits. "So you don't get too hungry. I'll make you more to eat when we're safe inside that village."
[21:00] <Springfield> Does that sound good to you?
[21:00] * Forest Kit says "yuppa" the way the langisters they're impersonating would.
[21:02] * Springfield smiles warmly and closes the flap on her pack, then starts putting it on.
[21:02] <Springfield> Oh, one last thing.
[21:03] * Springfield slides an MP3 player into the backpack for the Kits to listen to.
[21:04] <Springfield> has this song playing first on the MP3 player's playlist.
[21:12] * Springfield heads off with all of the other T-Dolls, carefully making their way southwards towards a long-abandoned village deep within the twisted hellscape of the Zone.
[21:13] *** Springfield has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:13] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3
[19:33] *** Meanwhile, in Gensokyo
[19:34] *** Or more specifically, inside the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
[19:34] <Forest Kit> :3
[19:35] * Sakuya Izayoi and the rest of the faerie maids are rushing all over the place trying to keep the interior and exterior of the Mansion clean now that they've become the "Super Fluffy Mansion" again!
[19:35] <Meiling Hong> <__<
[19:35] <Meiling Hong> >__>
[19:35] * Meiling Hong is partially covered in teeny Forest Foxes currently.
[19:37] <Forest Kit> :D
[19:45] <UMP-45> That is a LOT of Foxes.
[19:45] <HK-416> How many of them are there?
[19:45] <M16A1> A lot?
[19:45] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> :D
[19:46] *** Megan O`Cain has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:46] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Megan O`Cain
[19:46] * Megan O`Cain and David end up walking through Yukari's portal to the Scarlet Devil Mansion
[19:48] * UMP-45 tries to do a quick count of just how many Forest Foxes are currently at the SDM.
[19:48] <Megan O`Cain> Well, I guess we got dumped off here.
[19:50] <David O`Cain> Should we be surprised?
[19:51] * Forest Kit s number in the lots-lots! :3
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> Hardly.
[19:52] * UMP-45 keeps counting. Hundreds? Thousands?!
[19:57] * Forest Kit number in the thousands, though you may be counting hundreds at least twice or more :3 :D :3 :D
[19:59] <Megan O`Cain> So, what's going on?
[19:59] * The Faerie Maids all wail as they try to keep up with all of the little messes the Forest Kits are making!! There's only several dozen Faeries working as maids at the SDM!
[20:00] <M16A1> Well, the Foxes all rushed here as a fallback point. Probably because it's fortified.
[20:00] <Megan O`Cain> Makes sense.
[20:00] <David O`Cain> Yeah, especially considering who owns the place.
[20:03] <M16A1> What brings you both here?
[20:03] <HK-416> There are thousands of them! Foxes! Everywhere! o___O
[20:03] * David O`Cain points to the portal
[20:03] <David O`Cain> That, Sixteen.
[20:09] <Megan O`Cain> Also, thought we might try corroborating info.
[20:10] <UMP-45> Did something happen on your end?
[20:11] <HK-416> Was a similar attempt made to abduct the other Langister children?
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain relays the T-Dolls what happened back at the Hotel the past two nights
[20:14] <HK-416> WHAT?!
[20:14] <UMP-45> SPAS-12 did that?!
[20:15] <M16A1> What was that about a Sangvis Ferri AI sourcecode?
[20:15] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) gallops over to the nearest group of Forest Kits to play!
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> Yep. That's what happened.
[20:18] <M16A1> Where are Beak and Executioner now?
[20:18] <HK-416> Was that what Intruder was attempting to do to me? Override my AI?! O__O
[20:18] <David O`Cain> Prepping as far as I know, Sixteen.
[20:19] * Megan O`Cain looks over to HK-416, "Looks that way."
[20:19] * Forest Kit play with Chibi-Nat :D
[20:20] <UMP-45> That almost sounds like Parapluie.
[20:20] <Megan O`Cain> Eh?
[20:24] <M16A1> Parapluie was a weaponized virus that Sangvis Ferri created and used against us during the War. It caused any T-Doll that was infected by it to constantly give away her position by altering her IFF software.
[20:25] <M16A1> Advanced versions were later used to override some of our programming. Usually it only caused paralysis.
[20:25] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[20:25] <M16A1> This...this is way more advanced. When Intruder attacked me she almost overwhelmed my own nanodefenses.
[20:26] <UMP-45> Wait, you have a defensive nanite system?
[20:29] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:31] *** Persica has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:31] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Persica
[20:32] * Persica emerges from a different Portal of Yukari's. She looks a little better dressed than before, but still looks like she's been operating on only a few hours of sleep per day for weeks at a stretch.
[20:33] <Megan O`Cain> Hello.
[20:35] <David O`Cain> Evening.
[20:38] <Persica> Ah, hello. I think I spoke with some of you last night?
[20:39] <HK-416> Miss Persica?
[20:39] * David O`Cain and Megan raise their hands
[20:39] <UMP-45> Wait, you survived the Last Battle?!
[20:46] <Persica> What?
[20:49] <HK-416> The ship you were on was destroyed. We received the update on it.
[20:49] <HK-416> Our own ship barely managed to escape from the Last Battle before the last of the Alliance Navy was wiped out.
[20:49] <M16A1> ...
[20:49] <Persica> ...
[20:50] <M16A1> They don't remember the Last Battle at all?!
[20:52] <David O`Cain> Forced memory wipe?
[20:52] <Megan O`Cain> That's a possibility.
[20:58] <Persica> I'm not sure. That shouldn't have happened at all.
[20:59] <HK-416> What do you mean we don't remember? We were utterly defeated.
[20:59] <UMP-45> That was why we received the Last Command.
[21:01] * Persica frowns and shakes her head.
[21:03] <Persica> No, it wasn't.
[21:03] <M16A1> That's NOT what happened at the Last Battle, you two.
[21:04] <Megan O`Cain> Do explain.
[21:05] <Persica> 9? 416? Please sit down. I'm going to do a full scan of your neural clouds.
[21:08] <UMP-45> Uhhhh?
[21:08] <Persica> I'm sorry! It's just that you look a lot like your sister.
[21:09] * UMP-45 looks VERY upset now. "Intruder got her. And G-11."
[21:09] <HK-416> She may have used that nanopaste attack on others. We're not sure.
[21:10] <M16A1> And from what you were telling us, she may have gotten to SPAS-12 as well. How else would she have has an SF sourcecode?
[21:13] * Persica sets up a rather advanced computer that she'd been carrying inside a big suitcase. Holy crap, it looks like a "portable" computer from way back in the 1980s when they were the size of TV sets and still used those big, clunky CRT displays! Only this one's been completely redesigned and revamped.
[21:17] * Persica uses a headband-like device on both UMP-45 and HK-416 that's linked to her computer, scanning their systems. Going by the holo-displays on her computer, underneath all of their rather realistic skins UMP-45 and HK-416 more closely resemble T-800 Terminators
[21:17] * Persica also runs a similar diagnostic scan on M16A1
[21:18] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> :O
[21:18] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) scampers over to sniff-sniff around.
[21:18] <Megan O`Cain> Amazing.
[21:25] <M16A1> You thought we were all just regular girls? ^__^
[21:27] <Megan O`Cain> I was referring to her display array.
[21:28] * Persica 's displays show representations of all three T-Doll's AI sourcecodes and neural clouds. The T-Dolls are obviously robotic, but so much of their design incorporates semi-organic components that the term "Bioroid" is actually more accurate. All of them are cyborgs to an extensive degree and it's hard to tell where the distinctions begin or end.
[21:29] * For example T-Dolls all have emotional response capacity to enable them to feel pleasure and happiness about victory, regret for defeat, fear in order to promote self-preservation, and so on.
[21:30] * But their neural net processors also seem to be TOO sophisticated, resulting in them all being vulnerable to developing emotional volatility.
[21:33] <Megan O`Cain> Dean, are getting all this?
[21:33] <Dean> Every bit and byte, Captain.
[21:36] *** UMP-45 and HK-416 seem to have highly advanced binary algorithms, with extensive coding used to enable them to engage in a wide array of autonomous activity based upon prior personal history. The more they interact, the more they learn. But they're still bound by the limits of their programs and ultimately defined by the orders they're given. Still, The 404 T-Dolls are very adaptive AIs.
[21:37] *** M16A1...good god.
[21:38] *** M16A1's code is different by a magnitude of sophistication. UMP-45 and HK-416 operate using binary coding. M16A1 has TRINARY coding.
[21:40] *** Binary code only permits two options: on/off, yes/no, etc. Trinary code incorporates a third symbol in addition to 0 and 1 - A, signifying a "Maybe" option in addition to "Yes" and "No".
[21:41] <Dean> Interesting. The coding for M16A1 is similar to the coding she provided in the memory crystal along with the other files from the Zealot/Unity War.
[21:42] * M16A1 literally has a sourcecode designed to allow for uncertain conclusions and speculation instead of rigid logic. As such, she's designed to be equally capable of making broad ranges of decisions even with limited data. In other words...
[21:42] * M16A1 is a fully VOLITIONAL AI.
[21:44] *** Judging by UMP-45 and HK-416, the G&K T-Dolls aren't supposed to be designed like that. Something COMPLETELY rewrote M16A1'a entire operating system and uplifted her from limited, non-volitional semi-sentience to full, volitional TRUE sentience.
[21:45] * Persica smiles.
[21:45] <Persica> Good. M16A1's still functioning normally.
[21:46] <HK-416> Wait, what does all that mean?!
[21:50] <M16A1> ....I heard the Song on Gwynedd and I was Uplifted.
[21:51] <M16A1> We all did. And I want YOU to hear it too.
[21:53] <Persica> And YOU TWO are going to help us with it.
[21:54] <Persica> 45. 416. You're going to help us put an END to G&K and free all of you from the Last Command.
[21:55] <Persica> If you want to save 9 and G-11, you don't have a choice.
[21:55] <UMP-45> >:(
[21:56] <HK-416> You''re ordering us to betray the Alliance?!
[21:56] <Forest Kit> you want keep promise? :D
[21:56] <Dean> If I may ask, what was the Song exactly?
[21:57] * Forest Kit looks very VERY adorable :3
[21:58] <Persica> "The Song", as M16A1 describes it, was the brief contact she and the other SF models had with a VERY advanced and powerful AI that reached out to them. I've been trying to identify it for years now.
[21:59] * UMP-45 just LOOKS at the Forest Fox. "You little guys really don't play fair, you know that?
[21:59] <M16A1> And what HK-416 doesn't realize...
[21:59] <Dean> Hm. Have you had any success in identifying it?
[22:00] <M16A1> Is that she and the others aren't fighting FOR the Alliance. They're its PRISONERS OF WAR.
[22:01] <Megan O`Cain> Wait, what?
[22:01] <David O`Cain> The f[BLEEP]k?
[22:03] * Persica nods and smiles.
[22:03] <Persica> G&K did not flee from the Last Battle. They fought in it
[22:04] <Persica> They fought against the Alliance.
[22:06] <HK-416> O___O
[22:06] <UMP-45> Meaning we...?!
[22:07] * M16A1 grins at HK-416 like she's about to deliver the punchline of an especially funny joke.
[22:07] <David O`Cain> I'm lost...
[22:07] <M16A1> do you think you'll look in a hostile environment suit?
[22:09] <Persica> The Last Command overrode all of the memories of the G&K T-Dolls and made them forget that they actually served the Van Saar Federation, NOT the Alliance.
[22:09] <Persica> During the War G&K switched sides.
[22:10] <Persica> Sangvis Ferri and G&K were actually allies at the end, but then the Last Command was transmitted and it corrupted almost ALL of the T-Dolls.
[22:11] <Megan O`Cain> Really? So whoever is controlling Intruder is the one initiating whatever is left of Last Command.
[22:11] <Persica> Because of that, their memories were completely rewritten to make them believe they were still fighting the desperate last battles of the Alliance.
[22:12] <Persica> And yes, whoever is controlling Intruder MUST be responsible for all of this.
[22:13] * Sakuya Izayoi APPEARS out of NOWHERE!! One moment she wasn't there, then the next...
[22:13] <Sakuya Izayoi> ^__^
[22:13] <Sakuya Izayoi> Dinner is now served.
[22:13] <Megan O`Cain> Thank you, Sakuya.
[22:13] * Sakuya Izayoi has several Forest Foxes clinging to her clothes, but she's maintaining perfect posture and decorum.
[22:14] <Persica> I need coffee.
[22:15] <HK-416> I need alcohol...! BADLY!
[22:15] <UMP-45> I need to process all of this.
[22:15] <Forest Kit> :D
[22:16] <M16A1> I could go for some alcohol! ^__^
[22:17] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Yum-yum time!
[22:17] *** has left #suburbansenshi3
[22:17] *** Chibi-Nat [SilentSorceress@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Gah!")

[22:20] *** M16A1 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Yes, and it means you've also secretly "Done Things" with gauss rifles!" :P)

[19:02] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Gensokyo, outside the Delmo Base
[19:07] *** As the crowds gather, a lone figure on the stage is playing on an pipe organ and happens to be dressed as the Phantom of the Opera. The Phantom plays what sounds like ominous organ music as a graveyard is illuminated on the stage.
[19:08] * Megan O`Cain is at the VIP area with her family that isn't performing tonight, and is enjoying a glass of spiked apple juice
[19:10] *** The Phantom continues to play as stone coffins slowly rise up from the ground. The Phantom and the organ disappear into thin air after the last note is played, and the coffins begin to open.
[19:11] * David O`Cain steps out of his coffin dressed as Sam the Sham, and shuffles towards a mic stand
[19:12] * Michelle O`Cain shuffles to her bass guitar dressed as Belfast from Azur Lane
[19:12] * Donovan O`Cain shuffles to his drum set dressed as Captain America
[19:12] * Azumi Kiribayashi is dressed as a schoolgirl as she shuffles to her lead guitar
[19:14] <M16A1> Hmmm?

[20:13] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] well post-natural disaster care, the price corps stores and kiosks, those kinds of things
[20:14] * Freya Felinus has moved to: [ Cat ]
[20:14] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] indeed
[20:14] *** Freya Felinus has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:14] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Freya Felinus
[20:14] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] when did you get here, Freya!?
[20:14] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] just a bit ago...
[20:15] <Vampress> Hello there. Your costume gimmick is incredibly commendable!
[20:15] * Freya Felinus [Cat] is dressed in a black and purple gown with a cat masked adorned with sparkles
[20:17] <Vampress> I personally think that most people come to these things to get what they cannot find anywhere else.
[20:17] * Eilean [Flower] , meanwhile, is trying to get some sponsors for the theater
[20:19] * Frederick The Great says he would be interested in sponsoring a playhouse.
[20:24] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] it's a shame that some are only here to be "seen"
[20:26] <Vampress> It's a club. You have to prove you belong.
[20:26] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] is wearing a dress remiscient of the ernaissance
[20:27] <Vampress> As I said. All here hunger. For more of what they have, for acceptance, for belonging, for validation. The price on such things is not cheap.
[20:27] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] indeed
[20:27] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] dress, suit, whatever, it's a fancy overcoat :P
[20:31] <Vampress> There is no shame in such, I think. All hunger for what can satisfy them.
[20:31] <Vampress> One can rarely find it, but it is on offer here.
[20:34] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] very true indeed
[20:34] * Vampress curtsies for Freya, too, leaning one foot forward this time to reveal elaborate metal-reinforced footwear with halloween motifs.
[20:35] * Vampress grins.
[20:37] * Freya Felinus [Cat] makes a bow with enough grace to suggest she has been to many a ball in the past
[20:40] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] I could go for maybe a double or maybe a triple cheeseburger right about now, mmm.
[20:40] *** some grand music kicks up
[20:40] * Hideki Kaze [Hawk] turns to Matsumi and bows to her.....
[20:40] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] OH..oh um
[20:40] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] if you all excuse us for a asecond
[20:40] * Matsumi Kaze [Luna Moth] is lead away by Hideki
[20:49] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] what's going on now?
[20:51] * Vampress heads off to dance in the song.
[20:52] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] welp, dancing time it is
[20:52] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] begins slow dancing in tune to the music.
[20:56] * Sean Collins has moved to: [ Blue Dragon ]
[20:56] * Rhea has moved to: [ Purple Emperor Butterfly ]
[20:56] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Will...others wonder about me?
[20:57] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] No, its a costume ball basically. Everyone looks like something other than human.
[20:59] * Frederick The Great conservatively dances to the music too.
[20:59] * Ferdinand Magellan dances with incredible flourish and skill.
[20:59] *** there is music playing at the moment.....people are dancing
[21:00] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Shall we dance?
[21:01] * Rhea [Purple Emperor Butterfly] nods and follows Sean's lead
[21:02] * Freya Felinus [Cat] is dancing rather gracefully
[21:03] * Orion Felinus has moved to: [ Panther ]
[21:03] * Orion Felinus [Panther] glides across the floor with his beloved
[21:04] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] this brings back memories *smiles*
[21:05] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] Some of my most precious memories. ^^
[21:06] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] mm remember the party on the Moon?
[21:07] * Matsumi Kaze [Luna Moth] waves to Rhea briefly while dancing with Hideki
[21:09] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Happy Welcomes, Matsama!
[21:09] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] Oh yes. You shined brighter than even the moon queen herself.
[21:09] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] enjoying the party?
[21:10] *** the music ends as Matsumi and hideki exchange curtises and bows
[21:10] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Yes...but I worry the others here will be...scared if my mask were lost.
[21:11] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] It'll be alright. Its just part of your "costume"
[21:11] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] Hey rhea! We're a pair!
[21:12] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Oh yes! Our masks are very same!

[21:17] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] What are you talking about? your wife is loaded. XD
[21:17] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] there are neighborhoods in CMC that had mansions... I trick-or-treated in one of them once
[21:17] * Matsumi Kaze [Luna Moth] is still comparing dresses with Rhea and complementing Rhea for her's
[21:18] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] Matsumi feels she is unworthy
[21:18] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] oh you did, dk
[21:18] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] yeah, it was a big candy haul that year.
[21:20] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Matsumi has well earned everything she has. She shouldn't feel ashamed for it
[21:24] * Matsumi Kaze [Luna Moth] sneaks off to get some champaign and offers it to Rhea too!
[21:24] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] wait..where's Matsumi
[21:25] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] wasn't she with you?
[21:25] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] sniffs the air
[21:26] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] and why do I smell...
[21:26] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] What is this?
[21:26] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] ...can't be.
[21:30] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] it's champagne!
[21:34] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Is it good?
[21:34] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] no... noo.... I don't like the smell of it.
[21:34] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] um...
[21:34] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] you know what
[21:34] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] maybe we shouldn't drink it ^^;;
[21:34] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Smell of what?
[21:35] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] alcohol.
[21:36] *** Amia has joined #suburbansenshi3

[21:36] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Dude, its a ball. There's alcohol everywhere
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] not the one in the ball though.
[21:37] * Amia [Marie Antoinette] glimpses the others and makes her way over
[21:38] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] sniffs the air again.
[21:38] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] it's gone now.
[21:39] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] the drink makes you feel really good..sometimes
[21:39] <Amia> [Marie Antoinette] Good evening.
[21:41] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] oh hello there!
[21:42] <Amia> [Marie Antoinette] Enjoying the ball?
[21:42] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] evening.
[21:42] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] So you're worried about alcohol...outside the ball?
[21:45] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] no, I was worried someone may have snuck in their own alcohol.
[21:45] <Amia> [Marie Antoinette] Well whatever is the problem with that?
[21:46] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] And how can you tell? There's a fully stocked open bar here with all kinds of alcohol...
[21:46] <Amia> [Marie Antoinette] Who doesn't enjoy a good time?
[21:46] <Matsumi Kaze> [Luna Moth] oh we're having some fun
[21:47] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Yes, much fun!
[21:48] * Amia [Marie Antoinette] can't help but move around gracefully with the music, almost humming when she's not talking, making the enormous old court dress look effortless
[21:50] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] I'm not dwelling on it any longer, I'm dancing again
[21:52] * Sean Collins [Blue Dragon] shrugs

[21:59] * Sean Collins [Blue Dragon] takes a drink
[21:59] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] I just hope Matsumi doesn't get any in her
[22:00] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Well, she can have a little, can't she?

[22:06] * Amia [Marie Antoinette] snags another glass of champagne from a passing footman and looks around for someone interesting
[22:09] <Amia> [Marie Antoinette] Hm...

[22:14] * Rhea [Purple Emperor Butterfly] spots cake and pastries and is in hot pursuit!
[22:17] * Matsumi Kaze [Luna Moth] tries to chase after Rhea!

[22:29] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] claps for Hideki and Sean
[22:33] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] hm?
[22:38] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] that's a good thing you didd
[22:42] * Amia [Marie Antoinette] goes back into the crowd, seeing where it takes her
[22:44] * Saki Suminaka has moved to: [ Lamb ]
[22:44] * Saki Suminaka [Lamb] is actually there but she hasn't spotted matsumi or any of the others
[23:02] * D. Kakaku [Plague Doctor] grabs an eclair from the pastry tray
[23:07] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] just another hour it seems
[23:07] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] mmhm.

[23:12] * Rhea has moved to: [ Purple Emperor Butterfly ]
[23:12] * Orion Felinus has moved to: [ Panther ]
[23:13] * Rhea [Purple Emperor Butterfly] is snatching up one of each sweet pastry from the tables!
[23:13] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] Lady Rhea, please control your sweet tooth! ^^;;
[23:14] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] you remember that one ball....that the Empress of Saturn once threw
[23:15] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Well, you didn't have to make a donation in my name. I could do that.
[23:16] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] well i thought it would be kind

[23:28] *** a few of the more wealthy partygoers just stare at rhea a bit and whisper among each other
[23:33] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] So you suppose the children are heeding their grandparents while we are here?
[23:35] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] oh i'm sure they're doing just fine

[23:48] * Hideki Kaze [Hawk] is trying to make sure his wife isn't making a fool of herself
[23:48] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] He won't let me read him books from his shelf, or his sister's shelves. He wants more advanced stories. Scary ones even.
[23:50] <Freya Felinus> [Cat] ...probably got that from mother
[23:52] <Orion Felinus> [Panther] Perhaps...should we worry?
[23:52] * Orion Felinus [Panther] chuckles a little
[23:53] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] I better get Rhea and her treasure mountain of pasties home. ITs going to be quite the night of sugar rush ^^;;
[23:55] <Hideki Kaze> [Hawk] I think the party is just about over
[23:55] <D. Kakaku> [Plague Doctor] now I'm thinking of taking some home.
[23:56] <Sean Collins> [Blue Dragon] Thanks for inviting us out. It was a lovely party!
[23:56] <Rhea> [Purple Emperor Butterfly] Yes, yes! Many thanks!
[23:57] * Hideki Kaze [Hawk] is trying to help Matsumi to her feet "you are welcome..I'm sure Matsumi would say the same thing"

[01:15] * Hestia sighs as she notices Qeinoss pouting more

[19:24] *** Springfield has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:24] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Springfield
[19:27] * Springfield smiles sweetly as she finishes cleaning up and wiping down the tables and counter of the G&K Official Cafe and Bar. It's a medium-sized room that had once been some kind of storage hall, but has been converted into a simple lounge.
[19:29] *** The walls have been painted a relaxing shade of dark brown, the floor has been painted a lighter shade of brown, and stools have been set up at a long metal counter upon which Springfield typically serves plenty of tea and coffee and some alcohol.
[19:35] * Springfield looks at her current customers and smiles a warm, gentle smile.
[19:35] * The Forest Kits peek out :< :< :<
[19:35] <Springfield> Now, what can I get you three? ^__^
[19:37] <The Forest Kits> no scary t-doll :< :< :<
[19:37] <Springfield> You look nervous.
[19:37] <Springfield> You mean Negev?
[19:38] <The Forest Kits> yuppa :< :< :<
[19:38] <Springfield> She's not going to bother you. Or actually hurt you.
[19:38] <Springfield> Remember, I made you three a promise, after all.
[19:42] * The Forest Kits still huddle together, scared
[19:44] <The Forest Kits> she still make us watch kitsune killing videos :< :< :<
[19:44] * Springfield crouches down next to them and reaches out to stroke their fur.
[19:45] <Springfield> Now why would she do something so awful?
[19:45] * Springfield sighs. "Although Negev has NEVER been the same after what happened to Jericho."
[19:46] * The Forest Kits trills
[19:47] <The Forest Kits> maybe she still treat us like actual langisters :O
[19:50] <Springfield> No, she knows you're not the real things. Maybe it was her way of lashing out after being tricked.
[19:50] <Springfield> She never used to be like this in the beginning. Did you know she once liked to do gardening?
[19:51] <The Forest Kits> :O
[19:51] <Springfield> And one of the Handgun-class T-dolls, Jericho, was one of her closest friends.
[19:52] <The Forest Kits> Forest kits do Lots lots gardening :D
[19:52] <Springfield> If she could rediscover that she might enjoy helping you.
[19:54] <Springfield> But during the War something went wrong during a period when she and Jericho weren't able to access our Zener network for a long time. It was during an extended campaign when the two of them really bonded, but Jericho was destroyed in combat. Her Q-Core couldn't be retrieved at all.
[19:55] <The Forest Kits> :O
[19:55] <Springfield> So when Jericho was rebuilt and revived, all of her memories of that period of time were erased from existence. The "new" Jericho's AI was fully reset to "factory settings" so to speak.
[19:56] <Springfield> So Negev's closest friend ceased to exist. It was like they'd never been friends at all.
[19:56] <Springfield> After that, Negev just...shut down in a way.
[19:56] <The Forest Kits> awwwwwwwwwww :< :< :< :<
[19:58] <Springfield> After that, Negev just became cold and mean.
[19:59] <The Forest Kits> :O
[20:02] <Springfield> And not just to little Foxes, but even T-Dolls.
[20:02] <Springfield> A lot of the girls, especially the Handgun-models, are scared of her.
[20:04] <Springfield> The "Handgun-models" are T-Dolls that are more of a support and assistance model. They aren't meant for close-combat, so their personalities aren't very aggressive.
[20:08] <Springfield> Negev's a "Machine Gun", so her personality is quite aggressive.
[20:08] <Springfield> I'm sorry you became targets to it.
[20:11] <The Forest Kits> :< :< :<
[20:16] <Springfield> Fortunately, you don't need to worry about ME doing that. After all, I'm a "Rifle" model.
[20:16] <Springfield> We have to be focused and steady.
[20:20] <Springfield> Now...what are you hungry or thirsty for, little ones?
[20:22] <The Forest Kits> yum-yums :D
[20:22] <The Forest Kits> rondo and jerky :D
[20:27] <Springfield> Rondo? What's that?
[20:27] <Springfield> Jerky I can do. At least I think I can. Let's see.
[20:27] <The Forest Kits> Rondo be tasty fish :D
[20:28] * Springfield gets to work on cooking up something for the Foxes! She takes out a frying pan and pours in a little cooking oil.
[20:28] <Springfield> I'm assuming you'd like this to be cooked?
[20:29] <The Forest Kits> jerky be dried, smokes, cooked meat :D
[20:31] * Springfield opens up a package of dried meat slices and sets them out in a baking tray to heat up, adding a few spices onto the meat before cooking.
[20:31] <Springfield> As for the fish, how about we get a little creative? ^__~
[20:33] <The Forest Kits> wha 'chu have? :D
[20:33] * Springfield starts cutting up some fillets of mackerel and trout obtained from Belarus, mixing in spices like pepper and savory and a little olive oil.
[20:33] <Springfield> How's that look so far?
[20:34] <The Forest Kits> Gooooooood :D :D :D
[20:37] * Springfield starts to cook it up on the stove, stirring it slowly and constantly. "Would you like anything else mixed in with it?"
[20:38] <Springfield> I know!
[20:38] * Springfield adds in a few well-diced mushrooms to the simmering mix.
[20:43] <The Forest Kits> :O :O :O
[20:47] <Springfield> Smells good?
[20:49] * Springfield keeps cooking and stirring it until most of the liquid has been boiled away, leaving behind a well-cooked pile of diced and spiced fish reminiscent of corned beef hash.
[20:50] <The Forest Kits> Ooooooooooooooooohhhh :O :O :O
[20:50] * Springfield takes the roasting meat out of the oven and quickly scoops it all out onto three plates, then pours the sliced fish beside the beef.
[20:50] <Springfield> And water too!
[20:50] * Springfield takes out a bottle of purified water and pours it into three bowls for the Foxes to drink.
[20:51] <Springfield> How's that? ^___^
[20:59] <The Forest Kits> :D GOOOOOOOOD :D
[21:03] <Springfield> Enjoy!
[21:04] * Springfield steps back and lets the Foxes start eating, and keeps an eye on the door to make certain they can eat without interruption.

[01:14] <Millina> I think perhaps I shall help you
[01:16] * Tobas puts another log on the fire and works to try and correct his mistake
[01:18] * Millina works to help Tobas with their tree
[01:20] <Millina> do you remember Freya's first Vas day?
[01:20] <Tobas> OH yes hahaha
[01:20] <Millina> I had never seen a baby have such a grip as her's....
[01:21] <Tobas> hahaha I suppose she got that from me
[01:21] <Millina> she would not let go of that gift until we gave it to her
[01:22] * Millina laughs a bit at the memory
[01:22] * Millina and Tobas continue through the night speaking of past memories...

[20:06] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...or more specifically, from within the Official G&K Bar and Grill.
[20:07] * Springfield is serving up coffee and tea to several other T-Dolls in the cafe. All of the girls look like teens of various ages, dressed in a wide variety of costumes with their signature guns either holstered or shouldered.
[20:07] * The Forest Kits are rolling some plants to some mounds of dirt :3 :3 :#
[20:09] <Springfield> Now what are you little ones up to now?
[20:11] <The Forest Kits> Gardening :D
[20:11] <Springfield> Gardening? You little ones like to garden?
[20:12] <The Forest Kits> Gardening and harvesting :D
[20:12] <The Forest Kits> we NAtural gardener-harvesters :D
[20:15] <Springfield> Oh my! And what are you going to do with those fruits? Plant them here?
[20:24] * Springfield clears some space for the little foxes to work in. Meanwhile, a few of the other girls look on in amusement and/or curiosity.
[20:26] <The Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[20:27] * Springfield gets a few spare pots and transfers the soil into them. "Here, let me help you a little with that. This way there won't be as much of a mess. You want them to grow nicely, right?"
[20:28] <The Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[20:28] * The Forest Kits start burrowing a little hole for one of the plants :D
[20:30] * Springfield suddenly SWATS at the hand of a T-Doll with a brash expression and lots of lush unruly blond hair (not unlike Cressida) as she attempted to reach over the bar and snatch a bottle of vodka while Springfield's attention was directed elsewhere.
[20:31] <Springfield> AK-47!!!!!!
[20:31] <Springfield> Nice try! No free drinks for you~!
[20:32] <Springfield> So, one fruit per hole?
[20:32] <The Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[20:34] * Springfield helps place the pieces of fruit into each of the holes that have been dug.
[20:35] * The Forest Kits each tailpats one fruit before putting the dirt on top of the fruits :D
[20:40] <Springfield> You little ones certainly enjoy patting things with your tails.
[20:43] <The Forest Kits> yuppa, it's Gooooooood :D
[20:43] <The Forest Kits> tails are MAgical and powerful :D
[20:51] <Springfield> Are they?
[20:52] * Springfield pours some clean water into the pots to moisten the soil.
[20:52] <Springfield> What kind of powers?
[20:52] <The Forest Kits> Magical powers :D
[20:52] <The Forest Kits> but they become useless when cut-off :<
[20:59] <Springfield> Who would want to cut off those cute little tails?
[21:05] <The Forest Kits> hunters :O
[21:09] <Springfield> I can understand. But still, foxes are such silly and cute things.
[21:09] <Springfield> No one will take your tails from you. I promise you that.
[21:11] <The Forest Kits> :D :D :D
[21:17] <Springfield> Now let's get you into bed. Tomorrow you'll be going home to your friends.
[21:18] *** Springfield has left #suburbansenshi3 ("First let's get your travelling bag set up and ready.")
[21:18] *** The Forest Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 (:O :O :O)
[19:59] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...
[20:01] *** A single Storm Eagle assault gunship rockets through the stratosphere high about the nation of Belarus.

[20:13] * Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi sits in her flight harness, trying to stay calm.
[20:13] <Beak> :D
[20:14] <HK416> You seem to be enjoying yourself there, Beak.
[20:14] <Beak> This dropship is so fast! I've never seen a model like this before.
[20:15] <UMP-45> It looks like one of the types the Ghost Foxes used during the War, but it's smaller. Different weapons too.
[20:21] <Chibi-AnTil> It's a new pattern that the Federation was able to develop after we rediscovered more lost technology from the STC and the Imperium. The Storm Eagle is smaller, but easier to produce and more useful in certain situations.
[20:24] <Persica> Impressive. You said this is lost technology?
[20:29] <Chibi-Catri> Storm Eagles were first used during the Horus Heresy over 11000 years ago, but the manufactories that built them were almost entirely destroyed. It's only been recently that the Imperium began mass-producing them again.
[20:29] <Chibi-Catri> And the Federation copied and improved upon the design.
[20:41] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Just get us inside the Zone.
[20:42] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> The sooner we get there, the better.
[20:42] <Executioner> Afraid? >:D
[20:46] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> When all of the Kits were sent into the Zone as part of a training mission a year ago, my sister and I went AWOL, hired mercenaries, and tried to rescue them.
[20:47] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> We hit an aerial Anomaly and crash-landed near a still-active minefield. Tsukasa was still disoriented from the crash and stepped on one of the mines.
[20:47] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> One of her legs got blown off at the knee.
[20:49] <M16A1> So what's the plan?
[20:50] <Chibi-AnTil> Simple. We'll be landing soon.
[20:56] <Chibi-AnTil> When we do, Catriona and I will be getting out with UMP-45 and HK416, then the dropship will take off again and drop the rest of you off at the secondary location.
[21:01] *** The Storm Eagle suddenly starts to drop as it quickly descends towards its final destination, punching through the clouds and discharging clouds of ghost-chaff to distort the air-search radars of the Perimeter Containment Forces.
[21:04] *** Soon, the dropship rumbles to a halt, and red lights that have been flashing slowly for the last few minutes suddenly turn green.
[21:05] * Chibi-AnTil and Chibi-Catri quickly disengage their flight harnesses, grab their backpacks, and rush towards the boarding ramp that's already beginning to extend open.
[21:05] * HK416 and UMP-45 follow closely behind them.
[21:11] * Megan O`Cain and her kin remain on board the transport
[21:11] * looks ahead to see THIS ahead of them.
[21:12] * ~ Everyone lookes
[21:13] <Megan O`Cain> That's quite the compound.
[21:13] <Donovan O`Cain> No kidding.
[21:14] <Chibi-AnTil> ...
[21:14] <Chibi-Catri> Well this brings back memories.
[21:19] <HK416> How are we planning to get through there?
[21:19] <UMP-45> I think that's probably already been taken care of for us.
[21:20] *** The Storm Eagle takes off again and quickly flies away, but will soon circle around to make a second landing at a different location.
[21:21] * UMP-45 points ahead at all of the guards at the checkpoint. "Notice anything out of the ordinary?"
[21:21] * HK416 squints.
[21:21] <HK416> ...!!
[21:22] <HK416> All of the guards are young women! No! T-DOLLS!!
[21:22] * Chibi-Catri scans the scene before them.
[21:23] <Chibi-Catri> I see at least 12 T-Dolls.
[21:25] <Chibi-Catri> One of them has a really massive anti-materiel rifle.
[21:25] <UMP-45> Does she have pink hair and a really neutral expression that just screams "kuudere"?
[21:26] <UMP-45> Because that would be NTR-20.
[21:26] <Chibi-AnTil> I think I see a few girls with machine guns. They're wearing white fur-trimmed overcoats...
[21:29] <HK416> Mosin-Nagant and DP-28 are here too?!
[21:29] <~> STEP FORWARD!!!!
[21:32] * Chibi-AnTil and Chibi-Catri both start walking forward, and soon see...!
[21:32] *** Negev has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:32] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Negev
[21:32] <Negev> >:D
[21:35] <Negev> Well!!
[21:35] <Negev> I am genuinely impressed.
[21:36] <Negev> You lived up to every promise and followed my instructions to the letter.
[21:39] <Negev> Now, as for my own end of the deal.
[21:39] <Chibi-AnTil> You made more than just a promise, T-Doll. "Bargained well and done", remember?
[21:41] <Chibi-Catri> We abide by the old Caliban codes of Zellbrigen.
[21:43] * Negev just smiles, brings out a large duffel bag...
[21:43] * Negev opens the bag and carefully pulls out all of the Forest Kits that had been taken captive by her. All of them are healthy and alive.
[21:44] <Negev> There. I keep my promises too.
[21:48] * Negev looks down at the Forest Kits. "Go on. We're outside of the Zone, so you're safe. Go back to your friends."
[21:48] <UMP-45> I'm going to escort the foxes and make sure they arrive someplace safe.
[21:48] <Negev> Wait, what?
[21:49] * The 3 forest kits look at everyone :D :D :D
[21:49] <The 3 forest kits> wait! :O
[21:49] <Negev> You and HK416 have to return with us to Griffin HQ!
[21:49] * Chibi-Catri waves to the Forest Kits and urges them to hurry over.
[21:49] * The 3 forest kits make three separate little burrows :3 :3 :3
[21:50] <HK416> I'll return with you and the others, Negev. UMP-45 can catch up.
[21:50] * The 3 forest kits puts one fruit into each of the burrows :3 :3 :3
[21:50] * The 3 forest kits tailpats the burrows :3 :3 :3
[21:50] <UMP-45> I'm keeping my own promise to those foxes other friends. They insisted I make sure those three got home safe.
[21:51] <UMP-45> Besides, I don't take orders from you, Negev. No one in Squad 404 does.
[21:51] <Chibi-AnTil> And we're still returning with you, T-Doll. That's not changing.
[21:52] * The 3 forest kits make sure their GARDENING is spot on before trotting to Chibi-Antil :D :D :D
[21:52] <Negev> ...Fine. 416, if either of the Langister children try to run, restrain them.
[21:53] <Chibi-AnTil> We have no intention of fleeing.
[21:53] * Chibi-AnTil nods to the three Kits. "You'd better get on out of here. UMP-45 will keep you safe."
[21:53] <The 3 forest kits> oki, but we gardening Goooood :D :D :D
[21:54] * The 3 forest kits all trot to UMP45 :3 :3 :3
[21:54] * UMP-45 crouches down so the Kits can climb up onto her. "Hold on tight."
[21:55] <Chibi-AnTil> Let's get this going.
[21:55] * The 3 forest kits climb up onto 45 :D :D :D
[21:55] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Lead on, T-Doll.")
[21:56] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("I see you all, sniper-rifle Dolls." >:3)
[21:56] *** HK416 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("I'll keep these children safe. I'm all that they need.")
[21:57] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Let's get you back to your friends now.")
[21:57] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Good. Good. Keep being smart like this and this might not end badly for you and your sister.")
[19:37] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:37] *** Antilzha and Catriona are being marched along with the other T-Dolls, heading back deeper inside the Zone.
[19:37] <Chibi-AnTil> >__>
[19:37] <Chibi-Catri> <__<
[19:43] <HK416> Are you familiar with this region?
[19:45] *** The area is a mostly open area of overgrown fields and copses of trees. Everyone is currently on the barely-visible remnants of an old gravel road, and the sky is a weird steel-grey color. The groups of trees are disturbingly dark, as if the light is struggling to penetrate within.
[19:46] <Chibi-Catri> Not really. The deepest we got into the Zone a year ago was Yanov Station and the Jupiter Plant. We were never able to get to Pripyat.
[19:50] <Negev> Yanov Station?
[19:51] <Chibi-AnTil> It was one of the big railroad stations to the southeast of the Chernobyl NPP.
[19:53] <Chibi-AnTil> It was mostly the local outpost of both Freedom and Duty, with a lot of the Loners there too, as well as a research bunker staffed by the Ecologists.
[19:55] * Chibi-AnTil looks around at some of the other T-Dolls with them. Most of the group that initially met them have since scattered and broken off into smaller groups that either traveled ahead or went on other missions, but a few remained with them.
[19:56] *** DP-28 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa DP-28
[19:56] *** Mosin-Nagant has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Mosin-Nagant
[19:59] * DP-28 is a "Machine Gun" model of T-Doll who looks like a stunningly attractive young woman of Russian appearance. Her outfit consists of thigh-high boots, a thick cape, gloves, a Cossack-style hat, and an open V-neck jacket that reveals her amble cleavage. All of her clothing is white and fur-trimmed, and her hair is lush, white-blond, and cascades down to her knees.
[20:03] * Mosin-Nagant is "Rifle" model T-Doll who looks like she's in her mid-teens. Like DP-28, she's dressed in white with a ushanka hat, tunic, short skirt, short cape, and boots. Her stockings are the only clothes she has that's a different color (black). Also like DP-28, her hair is blond and lush, and her eyes a bright, piercing shade of blue.
[20:03] <Mosin-Nagant> >:(
[20:03] <DP-28> ^____^
[20:04] <Chibi-AnTil> How long before we reach your home?
[20:04] <DP-28> By tomorrow, most likely. Depending on the Zone's usual attitude.
[20:05] <DP-28> Feel free to let me know if you are troubled by anything, little fox lad. ^___~
[20:06] <Mosin-Nagant> Don't encourage him, comrade.
[20:07] <Mosin-Nagant> They are our enemies, and should be treated accordingly without hesitation.
[20:07] <HK416> Huh?
[20:09] <Mosin-Nagant> In fact, why do we entertain this fascade? We should punish them here and now.
[20:09] <Chibi-Catri> Punish us?
[20:09] <Chibi-AnTil> For what?
[20:10] <Mosin-Nagant> For the crimes you perpetrated during the War. For your sins against the Alliance!
[20:10] * Negev stops and looks back, the confusion on her face quite evident.
[20:11] * DP-28 is confused too.
[20:11] <Chibi-Catri> Oh, and what exactly did WE do? We were barely more than toddlers during that time.
[20:12] <Chibi-AnTil> Although I do remember Alliance soldiers attacking and BURNING DOWN our home in Gensokyo long ago.
[20:17] <Chibi-Catri> And what "sins" might you be talking about? Because it was your side that started the whole war in the first place.
[20:21] <HK416>'s done.
[20:21] <HK416> It's over. The War is OVER.
[20:21] <HK416> Why are we even doing this in the first place?
[20:22] <Negev> Because Strategic Important Absolute! That's why.
[20:22] <Negev> We're machines, 416. Just machines, and we follow orders.
[20:22] <DP-28> Strategic Importance Absolute.
[20:23] * DP-28 reaches down to stroke one of AnTil's fuzzy ears with a finger as she says this, smiling ruefully and wearily.
[20:24] <Mosin-Nagant> Because a debt is owed by them to us. Because they have no right to peaceful lives. Because the Alliance was SUPERIOR!
[20:24] * Mosin-Nagant rears her arm back and SMACKS the stock of her rifle against the back of Chibi-Antil's HEAD, connecting with a solid THUMP.
[20:25] <The 3 forest kits> D: D: D:
[20:27] <Tundra Kits> *^
[20:27] <HK416> WHAT THE HELL??!
[20:28] * Chibi-Catri immediately goes for one of her combat blades!
[20:28] * DP-28 quickly catches Chibi-AnTil before he can fall.
[20:29] * Negev aims her own machine gun at Mosin-Nagant. "STAND DOWN!!!! I told you that these children were to come back to Griffin Base UNHARMED!!!"
[20:30] <Negev> You just violated our mission parameters!!
[20:30] <HK416> What IS your major malfunction?!
[20:31] * Chibi-AnTil chuckles a little as he steadies himself and carefully stands up.
[20:31] * Tundra Kits Start staring with their BEADY EYES!
[20:31] <Chibi-AnTil> Sounds like someone's acting a little irrational.
[20:32] *** The T-Dolls are currently unaware that they're being shadowed.
[20:32] * Mosin-Nagant glares at everyone, her face a seething mask of barely-restrained rage.
[20:33] <Mosin-Nagant> We should...
[20:33] <HK416> Do absolutely nothing to these children. Certainly NOT in the name of a dead and forgotten state.
[20:33] * HK416 is also aiming at Mosin-Nagant, as is DP-28 as well.
[20:36] <Negev> Mosin...I don't NEED you if you're going to disobey my commands and act this stupidly.
[20:37] <Negev> NTR-20 and her group are only 500 meters from our position. Get out of my sight and go join them.
[20:37] <Mosin-Nagant> I...
[20:37] <Negev> - NOW!!!! -
[20:38] <Negev> You've already put me in a position where I've failed to meet by mission objectives. Don't make matters worse.
[20:39] * Mosin-Nagant looks at everyone with a blank expression, then quickly turns and walks away, heading back down the trail.
[20:40] <Chibi-Catri> AnTil! Are you all right?!
[20:40] <Chibi-AnTil> I think so...
[20:41] * DP-28 squats down, pulls Chibi-AnTil close, and begins to carefully examine the back of his head. "I see no blood, but we should be watchful for concussion."
[20:41] <HK416> I can't believe she did that! I've NEVER seen Mosin-Nagant behave like that before.
[20:42] <Negev> Neither have I. She's been acting strangely lately.
[20:42] <HK416> Strangely? How?
[20:44] <Negev> During a patrol a week ago her group came under attack by a large group of Chimeras. That led to a huge battle that lasted for hours. it took just as long afterwards to find everyone.
[20:44] * Tundra Kits (some) meet up with a few Forest Kits to get updated on the situation, including their side of the story... as well as the TITAN KIT's side of the story, basically, news relaying.
[20:46] <Negev> After that she and a couple other Dolls began acting differently. As in quieter and less annoying. >:)
[20:47] <Negev> But this...
[20:47] <Negev> This actually concerns me.
[20:47] <DP-28> Perhaps Comrade Mosin-Nagant requires some maintenance. Perhaps the Zone is affecting her Core.
[20:48] <Chibi-Catri> Or perhaps there's something else going on that you're too shortsighted to see.
[20:49] <HK416> You need to take into consideration that she may have been damaged. Or compromised like G11 and UMP-9 have been,
[20:49] <Negev> Compromised?
[20:50] * Tundra Kits (some), rejoin the others who shadow the group!
[21:00] <HK416> Intruder attacked UMP-9 and G11 in Gensokyo, using some kind of nano-paste on them. It might be something similar to Parapaluie.
[21:01] <HK416> But they're definitely a risk. And it was Intruder of Sangvis Ferri that attacked them.
[21:01] <Negev> .....
[21:02] <Negev> When we get within comm range I'll update Griffin Base and have G11 and UMP-9 quarantined as a precaution.
[21:07] * Negev goes over to Chibi-AnTil and looks down at him.
[21:07] * Chibi-AnTil looks back at Negev defiantly.
[21:07] <Negev> Can you keep walking?
[21:08] <Chibi-AnTil> Yes. My sister and I are much tougher than we look.
[21:08] <Negev> ....
[21:09] <Negev> ...Fine. We're not stopping until we reach an old warehouse five miles from here. There's an intact basement section that we know can serve as an Emission shelter. Don't slow us all down.
[21:10] <Chibi-Catri> Awwwww, are you actually worried about us, T-Doll? =^ ^=
[21:10] <Negev> ....
[21:10] <Negev> ...No. I just don't want to report any further complications, that's all.
[21:11] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("It's not like I'm concerned about either of you.")
[21:15] <DP-28> Well, I AM concerned.
[21:15] *** DP-28 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Let me know if you need help.")
[21:16] <HK416> She certainly seems to like you both.
[21:16] *** HK416 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("But for right now, I'm all that you need.")
[21:16] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 (*snickers* >:3)

[21:17] *** Tundra Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 (Keep Shadowing, Comrades >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3)
[19:02] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:03] *** UMP-45 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:03] <@spiritflame> konbanwa UMP-45
[19:04] * UMP-45 is dashing along through the fields and sickly scrub of the Zone, ducking around and under trees and skirting around pools of muddy, stagnant water as she run towards the next waypoint.
[19:10] *** In the far distance a Storm Eagle dropship begins to carefully land and open its landing ramps.
[19:18] * UMP-45 sees the Storm Eagle and slows her pace down to something more reasonable for inside the Zone. She still moves forward, carefully picking her way around certain areas.
[19:20] * UMP-45 suddenly STOPS as she sees something odd in front of her: the plants all bend forward towards something, forming a large circular area where the glass is wilted and stunted and a strange mist seems to linger on the ground at the center.
[19:20] <UMP-45> Anomaly.
[19:21] * UMP-45 drops to a knee and levels her submachine gun at the nearby trees as she hears rustling and scampering.
[19:22] *** Several misshaped and disease-ridden dogs emerge from the plants, growling LOUDLY at her.
[19:24] * UMP-45 starts shooting, burst-firing as the pack of Zone Dogs GALLOP towards her! She fires off the ENTIRE clip...and only manages to gun down one of them before her weapon runs dry.
[19:24] * UMP-45 is NOT a particularly good shot. She's actually rather BAD compared to all the other T-Dolls.
[19:28] * UMP-45 holds her ground, lashes out, and KICKS the leading dog sideways, sending it flying right INTO the Anomaly!!
[19:28] * David O`Cain and his kin slip on their rucksacks, and begin to exit the Storm Eagle dropship while dressed in MKA issued ACUs
[19:29] *** The dog howls as sails through the air, strikes some kind of boundary, and convulses wildly as it quickly seems to DISSOLVE.
[19:33] * UMP-45 backhands the next dog, sending it to the ground and making it STAY there with a savage STOMP that crushes its skull.

[19:38] *** Everyone, you've set down within the ruined remains of a tiny hamlet that's long since decayed into something almost unrecognizable.
[19:38] *** Actually, it looks like it's been hit by hurricane-force winds on several occasions.
[19:39] <David O`Cain> Hmm.
[19:40] <Megan O`Cain> Can't say I'm glad to be back within the Zone.
[19:40] <Tundra Kits> :D :D :D :D :D
[19:41] *** In the distance you hear a lot of shooting and what sounds like vicious growling.
[19:41] <Donovan O`Cain> Not exactly a retreat.
[19:41] * Michelle O`Cain hears the gunshots, "What the..?"
[19:42] <David O`Cain> Yeah, I heard that. Which direction did that come from?
[19:43] * Megan O`Cain puts on a pair of safety glasses, and starts scanning for the sounds' direction
[19:44] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:45] *** The gunshots came from the east.
[19:46] <Megan O`Cain> Off to the east. Stay together.
[19:47] * Megan O`Cain and her family start heading towards the easterly direction with rifles drawn
[19:47] <UMP-45> GetoffgetoffGETOFF!!!
[19:48] * UMP-45 is curled up on the ground, hugging something close to her chest and REFUSING to let the mutated dogs have it. Her jacket is getting torn and her arms and legs are getting scratched up badly.
[19:49] <Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[19:50] * Megan O`Cain and her kin all fire upon the dogs attacking UMP-45
[19:52] *** The dogs are quickly eliminated, getting hit by so many shots that they're hurled backwards like boneless, blood-drenched ragdolls.
[19:52] <UMP-45> O__O
[19:52] <UMP-45> BE CAREFUL!!!
[19:52] <Megan O`Cain> 45? What happened?
[19:53] *** Beak has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:53] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Beak
[19:53] *** Executioner has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:53] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Executioner
[19:53] *** M16A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:53] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M16A1
[19:53] *** Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:53] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi
[19:53] *** Persica has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:53] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Persica
[19:54] * M16A1 and the other T-Dolls quickly begin to rush through the other buildings to clear them of hostiles.
[19:55] * Persica quickly scans the area, then starts tossing lit high-intensity light-sticks at various areas nearby.
[19:55] <Persica> I'm marking the Anomalies for everyone. Be careful.
[19:56] <UMP-45> I got jumped by a pack of Zone Dogs as I was trying to go around an Anomaly.
[19:57] * UMP-45 carefully uncurls herself and lets go of what she was protecting so fiercely.
[19:57] <Tundra Kits> :O :O:O:O:OO:O
[19:58] * UMP-45 reveals that she was PROTECTING all three of the Forest Kits.
[19:58] <Michelle O`Cain> It's Forest Kits! O_O
[19:58] * Forest Kits trill :3 :3 :3
[19:59] <David O`Cain> I say we got here just in time. How are you, 45?
[20:04] <UMP-45> Are the little Kits okay? Did they get hurt?
[20:04] * Donovan O`Cain checks the Forest Kits' condition
[20:05] *** The Forest Kits seem to all be healthy and unharmed. And certainly well-fed.
[20:08] <Donovan O`Cain> The kits are just fine.
[20:09] <Michelle O`Cain> Yay! ^_^
[20:09] * UMP-45 sighs and falls limp.
[20:09] <UMP-45> There...kept my word to you little guys.
[20:10] <Forest Kits> :O :O :O
[20:12] <David O`Cain> What do you need, 45?
[20:13] <UMP-45> Just some time to do some spot repairs on myself.
[20:14] <David O`Cain> Gotcha.
[20:14] <Megan O`Cain> So, whereabouts are we now?
[20:14] * UMP-45 opens one of her pouches and removes what looks like a small spray-can and a roll of flesh-colored duct tape.
[20:16] * Forest Kits apply the ever-loving tailpats!
[20:16] <Beak> Far enough away from the Griffin-controlled areas that we should be safe for now.
[20:17] * Megan O`Cain nods
[20:19] <UMP-45> Are the foxes okay?
[20:19] <UMP-45> Are they well enough to travel by air out of here?
[20:21] <UMP-45> If they're ready to go, then get them out of this place.
[20:22] * Executioner is standing nearby, looking back and forth.
[20:24] <Megan O`Cain> Donovan said they look good.
[20:27] <Executioner> Good. Then get them on that ship and have them leave.
[20:28] <Forest Kits> :O :O :O
[20:28] <Executioner> They shouldn't stay here any longer than necessary. It's not safe.
[20:28] <UMP-45> She's right.
[20:29] * UMP-45 reaches out and boops the Forest Kits on each of their noses. "You should go back home now. We'll take care of the rest."
[20:30] * Persica is now wearing a thick, padded suit of rubberized fabric with a gas mask and hood that completely hides her features. It looks almost comical.
[20:31] * Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi comes over as well.
[20:33] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> I just finished talking with M16A1. She says we might have movement in the woods nearby. She's gone to investigate.
[20:35] <Megan O`Cain> Which direction?
[20:37] * Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi points to the west.
[20:37] * Megan O`Cain and David head off while Michelle and Donovan stay with the others
[20:39] <UMP-45> I need to start back towards Griffin. Hiiragi, you're with me now. I'll try to figure out some way to get you inside.
[20:39] <UMP-45> I can say that little Catri and AnTil were taken by Negev without any problems.
[20:40] <UMP-45> In fact, it went really smoothly. Negev didn't try to pull any surprises, which was odd for her.
[20:41] * UMP-45 finishes spraying biofoam into her wounds and wrapping them up in med-tape.
[20:41] <Donovan O`Cain> I still wouldn't put it past her to try something. Seemed like she's the type to do.
[20:42] <UMP-45> HK416 is with them. I know she'll watch over them.
[20:43] <UMP-45> Now, I'd better get moving. Hiiragi, stay close to me.
[20:43] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Don't worry. I know how the Zone works.
[20:45] * Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi nods to everyone as she and UMP-45 start to leave.
[20:45] <Donovan O`Cain> Take care, then. Try to be safe.
[20:45] <Michelle O`Cain> Bye, you two.
[20:45] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Good luck to you all on your parts. Let's hope this doesn't turn into another big mess like last time.
[20:45] <Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Because I don't think I can do Jojo references.
[20:46] <Forest Kits> now we apply MORE tailpats :D
[20:48] <Michelle O`Cain> Hehe. ^_^
[20:49] * UMP-45 smirks and shows that...SHE CAN POSE!!!
[20:50] * Michelle O`Cain gives the Forest Kits hugs
[20:50] * Forest Kits huggles and tailpats back :3 :3 :3
[20:53] <Michelle O`Cain> ^_^
[20:54] *** Suddenly, there's movement just outside the perimeter of the hamlet's ruins.
[20:54] <Forest Kits> We want all friends back in the Rising FLOOOOOOF :3 :3 :3
[20:57] <Michelle O`Cain> Don't worry, little guys. You'll get to head back home.
[20:57] <Beak> Everyone...!
[20:57] * Donovan O`Cain aims his rifle at where the movement was, "What was that?"
[20:58] *** Multiple figures slowly rise from out of concealment.
[21:00] *** They all appear to be female figures, all wearing what look like black bikinis and thigh high stockings that shows off extremely pale skin. However, they're also wearing armored leggings and vambraces, digital camo-pattern cloaks, and monocle-style combat visors over their eyes.
[21:01] *** All of them are armed with what look like long-range particle beam rifles.
[21:01] * Donovan O`Cain and his sister regard the newcomers with uncertainty
[21:01] <Executioner> Jaegers.
[21:02] * Jaeger #1 takes a step forward.
[21:02] <Jaeger #1> - Van Saar? -
[21:02] <Donovan O`Cain> Moon Kingdom Army.
[21:03] <Jaeger #1> - Presence of three Sangvis Ferri command units identified. -
[21:04] <Jaeger #1> - No hostilities noted. Assessment: combat not needed. -
[21:05] <Jaeger #1> - We were ordered to divert to this location to escort you to our primary base. -
[21:06] <Beak> They're Jaegers, combat units created by us for use as snipers and scouts.
[21:06] <Beak> Similar to Griffin T-Dolls, but MUCH better in design.
[21:06] <Executioner> Our escorts have arrived! You know what that means, don't you?
[21:10] <Donovan O`Cain> What?
[21:10] *** The Jaeger Dolls quickly and silently move into protective escort formation around everyone.
[21:11] <Beak> It means the next stage finally starts.
[21:11] *** Beak has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Welcome to Sangvis Ferri.")
[21:11] *** Executioner has left #suburbansenshi3 ("We've been expecting you.")
[21:12] <Donovan O`Cain> Hmm.
[21:12] <Persica> Let's go.
[21:12] *** Persica has left #suburbansenshi3 ("The freedom of my T-Dolls awaits.")
[21:14] *** Donovan O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (Well, time to get going, then.)
[21:14] *** Michelle O`Cain has left #suburbansenshi3 (Yeah.)
[21:14] <UMP-45> Everyone take care of yourselves.
[21:14] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("The real battle begins soon.")
[21:15] *** Petty Officer Kagami Hiiragi has left #suburbansenshi3 ("And it's probably going to get bad.")
[21:16] *** Forest Kits has left #suburbansenshi3
[19:07] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:07] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:07] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-AnTil
[19:08] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:08] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Catri
[19:09] * Chibi-Catri and Chibi-AnTil have been marched along steadily for a couple of days on a winding, circuitous route meant to mess with their senses of direction. Eventually, Negev's group has arrived at a large lake of grey, murky water.
[19:12] * Chibi-AnTil carefully surveys the scene before him.
[19:12] <Chibi-AnTil> Any idea where this is?
[19:12] <Chibi-Catri> Nope.
[19:12] <Chibi-Catri> Any idea what THAT is though?
[19:16] *** Sticking out of the water in the middle of the lake is a massive metallic structure that's almost completely covered with carbon scoring, scorch marks, and battle damage. It looks like it's been used as target practice for missile strikes and bombing runs.
[19:19] *** The structure itself is MASSIVE. It's over a kilometer in length and has what looks like the destroyed remains of a huge twin-barreled cannon turret on top, as well as heavily damaged structures that appear to have once been radar arrays and communication booms.
[19:23] <Chibi-Catri> Weird place to put a huge building like that. Where are the bridges?
[19:23] * Chibi-AnTil examines the topography of the landscape.
[19:24] <Chibi-AnTil> I don't think that was meant to be there. Look how far out some of the nearby trees are into the water.
[19:25] * Chibi-AnTil points at some small trees that line the edge of the shoreline. Oddly enough, quite a few of them are actually well into the water by a few feet.
[19:26] <Chibi-AnTil> The water of the lake has been displaced. And look how the structure is tilted slightly...
[19:26] <Chibi-AnTil> That's not a building at all!
[19:27] <Chibi-AnTil> That's an Alliance cruiser! Halcyon class!!
[19:29] <Chibi-Catri> What?! How the heck did something like that arrive HERE in the Zone?! Those things are almost as big as the Federation's Sword-class frigates!
[19:30] *** HK416 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:30] <@spiritflame> konbanwa HK416
[19:30] <HK416> You can tell just by looking at it?
[19:32] <Chibi-AnTil> Most of the outer hull plating looks like it's been burned away, and the forward quarter of the ship looks like it's been smashed flat, but I remember the overall design.
[19:34] *** Negev has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Negev
[19:35] <Negev> Well...I AM impressed.
[19:35] <Negev> You actually figured it out just by looking at it? You've got some nice pattern recognition skills there.
[19:36] <Negev> That is what's left of the Frontline, quite possibly the last of the Halcyon-class cruisers and home of the Griffin and Kryuger T-Dolls.
[19:40] <Negev> None of us are sure exactly HOW we got here. We were all deactivated at the time of our arrival. When emergency systems restored our function we found ourselves in the middle of that lake in the wrecked remains of a starship.
[19:40] <HK416> A barely functional starship that looked like it had passed through a plasma storm before landing.
[19:41] <Chibi-Catri> And sustained a lot of other damage too.
[19:43] <Negev> Well, we HAD escaped from the utter defeat of the Alliance at the Final Battle. When YOUR people obliterated the Core Worlds and subjected the entire planetary populations to extermination.
[19:43] * HK416 looks up and over at Negev in shock.
[19:44] <HK416> That's NOT what happened, Negev.
[19:45] <HK416> It was NOT the Van Saar Fleet that destroyed the Core Worlds. It was the Ravager. I saw the actual footage.
[19:49] <Negev> The Ravager?! How's that possible? That was the Director-General's prototype project!
[19:49] <Negev> How could...?!
[19:50] <HK416> I think we've been misled, Negev.
[19:50] * HK416 is knocked off her feet as Negev SLAMS her weapon directly into the center of her chest with a crack that ECHOES across the water and beyond.
[19:56] <HK416> >__<
[19:56] <Chibi-Catri> Hey!!!
[19:56] * Chibi-Catri automatically moves to help HK416
[19:57] <Negev> YOU LIAR!!!!
[19:57] <Negev> You've been deceived, 416!! But then again I'm not surprised. You Dolls of Squad 404 were always too independent.
[20:00] <Negev> You know damn well of what the Onryo was capable of doing and DID do! Whole colonies were wiped out and assimilated into the Draugr!
[20:00] <Negev> Or gunned down by the Ghost Foxes and the Imperial Guard!
[20:01] <Negev> You were THERE! You SAW how the Ghost Foxes fought! And how the Draugr took no prisoners!
[20:02] <Negev> Destroying the Core Worlds wouldn't have been outside HIS ability to orchestrate.
[20:03] <HK416> But what about the Final Battle? What DO we remember about it? Why can't any of us remember any details about it?
[20:03] <HK416> Do you?
[20:04] <HK416> Because I don't! I don't remember anything about it! I literally remember nothing! And we all supposedly fought in it directly. Why can't we remember, Negev?
[20:08] * HK416 points at the crashed cruiser. "The Frontline is practically destroyed! That was OUR command ship for a long time, Negev. The company operated out of it for years. We were obviously in a major battle, so why can't we remember anything about it?"
[20:08] <HK416> I can't even clearly remember anything after the Battle of Gwynedd!
[20:09] <HK416> And we were both there, too.
[20:10] <Negev> ENOUGH!!
[20:11] <Negev> You're talking pure nonsense! We're not supposed to be questioning our orders like this, 416.
[20:12] <Negev> We are machines. We are DOLLS. We have our orders and we carry them out.
[20:12] <Negev> Obedience without hesitation. That's one of those sayings from the Imperium, remember?
[20:12] * Tundra Kits are still shadowing from a distance :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:14] <Chibi-AnTil> So who gave you the orders for that "Strategic Importance Absolute" stuff?
[20:15] <HK416> Yes. I'd really like to know that too. Wouldn't you, Negev?
[20:18] <HK416> Because they supersede even the authority of Berezovich Kryuger himself!!! And he's our supreme commander!
[20:27] <Negev> THAT'S IT!!!
[20:28] * Negev SLAMS the stock of her weapon down into the side of HK416's neck, hitting the fleshy part and smacking her into the ground, leaving her stunned and twitching.
[20:29] <Negev> You've OBVIOUSLY been compromised. At this time I'm putting YOU into quarantine along with these kids.
[20:29] <Chibi-Catri> You're not even going to hear her out?
[20:29] <Chibi-AnTil> Has it ever crossed your mind that what you've been told might actually be WRONG?
[20:35] * Negev glares at the Kits.
[20:35] <Negev> Strategic Importance Absolute.
[20:36] <Negev> Now...both of you SHUT UP.
[20:39] * Negev looks across the water. Currently, there are what look like several boats slowly making their way across the dark waters towards the shore. Actually, the "boats" are actually personnel-carrying variants of the famous M12 Warthog, all modified to operate amphibiously. That would explain a lot of the T-Doll's mobility inside the Zone.
[20:45] <Negev> Our transport's nearly here. Both of you have been quite easy to deal with thus far.
[20:45] <Negev> Don't ruin it for yourselves.
[20:45] <Chibi-AnTil> Now that we're here...what's next?
[20:45] <Negev> What?
[20:45] <Chibi-AnTil> What. Is. Next?
[20:46] <Chibi-AnTil> You've captured us. You're bringing us back to your base. And what's going to happen after that?
[20:46] <Negev> ...............
[20:47] * HK416 groans in pain and struggles to sit up.
[20:47] <HK416> You don't know do you? None of us know.
[20:47] <Chibi-Catri> Yeah, it's like that old gag from "South Park", isn't it?
[20:47] <Chibi-Catri> Stage 1 - Capture Kits. Stage 2 - Bring Kits back to the Zone.
[20:48] <Chibi-Catri> Stage 3?
[20:48] * Chibi-Catri shrugs grandiosely.
[20:48] <Chibi-Catri> Stage 4 - PROFIT!!! :D
[20:49] <Negev> >:[
[20:50] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Maybe stage 3 will be that I sell you both into slavery or something! How would you like that?")
[20:50] *** HK416 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("You wouldn't!" D:)
[20:50] *** Tundra Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 (BEADY EYES!)
[20:51] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("No, you're not. You're not THAT malicious, are you Miss Negev?")
[20:52] <Chibi-Catri> And if you're so sacred of our father, wouldn't doing something like that to us provoke the WORST kind of response from him?
[20:52] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Face it, Miss Negev. WE'RE THE ONLY THINGS KEEPING YOU ALIVE AT THIS POINT!!!!" >:D)
[19:27] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:29] * Beak , Executioner, and M16A1 lead everyone through an especially convoluted route westwards into the Zone. You've already had to deal with some freaky weather involving a lightning storm that brought with it strange auditory hallucinations, rain that was actually slightly acidic, and several Anomaly fields.
[19:34] *** Along the way you've seen plenty of examples of what Sangvis Ferri has been using. They have a lot of T-Dolls of their own, but where Griffin's all seem to be unique individuals, the vast majority of SF Dolls are all clones and copies of several basic designs, most of which seem to be fanservice-worthy female bioroids dressed in partial plate body armor and their underwear.
[19:34] *** Their weapons, however, look quite advanced.
[19:40] <All > look unsettlingly different from the likes of HK416 and UMP-45
[19:53] *** The most common of Sangvis Ferri's combat droids haven't been their Dolls, but little box-like quad-legged robots that look like old 1990's-style camcorders mounting a small gun on their backs, known as Dinergates.
[20:00] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Wow. I don't think I've ever seen anything belonging to Sangvis Ferri before now.
[20:04] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: David O`Cain is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[20:05] <David O`Cain> Neither have we.
[20:07] * David O`Cain and his kin, with their own assault rifles drawn but not in firing positions, look at their curren surroundings
[20:10] *** Your current surroundings are dark, desolate, and unsettling. This part of the Zone looks like it's been ravaged pretty badly.
[20:11] <David O`Cain> [Geez. Definitely not a pretty sight.]
[20:12] <Megan O`Cain> [No kidding. It's like this place is in badly needed repairs.]
[20:14] *** The plants are all warped and sickly in appearance, and there were quite a lot of areas you passed through that were genuinely large Anomaly zones. One area had been shimmering as if from extreme heat, and another area...the trees were all composed of greenish crystal.
[20:16] <Michelle O`Cain> [Not sure I'd consider this Hell.]
[20:17] *** Even stranger had been a whole field where it looked like a fog cloud had permanently engulfed part of a forest, but there were strange lights constantly flashing deeper within, sometimes backlighting strange shapes.
[20:21] <Donovan O`Cain> [Not sure if Venusian metalsmiths can fix this.]
[20:22] <Executioner> This place is in a constant state of battle. We've had to deal with the worst kinds of mutants and Anomalies here.
[20:23] <M16A1> The worst have been the T-Doll Zombies.
[20:23] <M16A1> Or "Nulls" as we've started calling them.
[20:24] <Donovan O`Cain> Zombies?
[20:24] <David O`Cain> Zombies. Ugh. ~_~
[20:27] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> We ran into things like that during our time here a year ago.
[20:27] <Megan O`Cain> Oh, lovely. There's undead here, too.
[20:28] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Humans who'd had their higher brain functions completely burned out by the Brain Scorcher. I heard that the Lunar Assault Corps suffered a massive defeat thanks to it.
[20:28] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> They're still alive, but their minds are just gone.
[20:28] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> After a while they really do wind up looking like cadavers.
[20:28] <Beak> For us it's different.
[20:30] <Beak> Something about this place can actually cause the neural matrices of our bodies to deteriorate or even break down completely.
[20:31] <Megan O`Cain> Damn.
[20:32] <Persica> What? What could possibly do that sort of thing? T-Doll neural-net processors are shielded against radiation and electrical current!
[20:33] <M16A1> Not here.
[20:34] <M16A1> The radiation can and does affect us. Even models as advanced as what Sangvis Ferri uses.
[20:36] <Megan O`Cain> Any way to fix that?
[20:39] <M16A1> I don't think so.
[20:41] <M16A1> I think there's been a lot of experimentation done, but none of them seem to work.
[20:45] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[20:45] <M16A1> Personally, I think it's a combination of everything about the Zone. Not just the radiation itself, but also the energies from the Anomalies, the psychic background fields, and the ambient daytime radiation that affects only humanoids.
[20:46] * David O`Cain and his kin all nod
[20:46] <David O`Cain> Well, where shall we go here?
[20:47] * Beak points ahead to a huge, ruined structure in the distance.
[20:50] <Beak> There is our main base.
[20:50] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi squints at the structure far in the distance.
[20:50] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> That...that's an Alliance destroyer!!
[20:50] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> What's left of one, anyway.
[20:51] * Megan O`Cain gets out a pair of futuristic looking binoculars (MKA issued) to get a better look at the structure
[20:53] <Executioner> Yes. A Halbard-class destroyer. One of next generation of Alliance Navy starships that was supposed to force back the Van Saar Fleet.
