<.'~SugaBB_2999~'.> LOL STFU n im gona mak mony in my nw carear az a camhore

welcome to #suburbansenshi3

[20:36] <HK416> What?!
[20:37] <HK416> Then...who issued the Last Command?!
[20:38] <Helianthus> I don't know. But based on what little I'm seeing on the security cameras, the Onryo HIMSELF is here and leading a slaughter. And...
[20:38] * Helianthus squints HARD at the images she's seeing. "Are those FOXES running amok through the halls?!"
[20:39] <Burroughs> Yup..
[20:39] <Helianthus> ...I have no words for that.
[20:40] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Small one.
[20:40] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger is addressing Chibi-Catri.
[20:40] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> How enraged do you think your father is?
[20:40] * Chibi-Catri looks at the camera footage.
[20:40] <Chibi-Catri> Oooo! Serbius and Trajan are here too!
[20:41] <Chibi-Catri> I'd say he's super pissed!!! ^____^
[20:41] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> ...
[20:41] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger looks at everyone else in the room.
[20:42] <Mammon> Huh, my cousins are really tearing it up out there.
[20:42] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger is especially looking at Burroughs and his friends.
[20:42] * Capt. David O`Cain along with Megan, Donovan, and Michelle are still putting up a fight with their rifles, Heavy Storm, and grenades
[20:42] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> I don't know who you are, but I request your assistance in getting us all to the command center of this vessel.
[20:43] * Burroughs is female, thank you very much. :P
[20:43] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> If we can get there MAYBE we can stop this battle before it escalates any further.
[20:43] <Burroughs> Count on it.
[20:44] * The Tundra Kits are SWARMING, inside and outside now :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:45] <Helianthus> ...
[20:45] <Helianthus> I want to cuddle those foxes.
[20:46] <@Yaijinden> THEY'RE IN MY HAIR
[20:46] <@Yaijinden> AAAAAAAAUGH
[20:49] <Chibi-Catri> My brother is already on the way up to the command center with Negev.
[20:50] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Then let us follow them. Quickly.
[20:50] * @Yaijinden flees off camera pursued by attack snuggles, never to be seen again until he is
[20:51] * Burroughs goes to pull up a general map of the area, to find the most efficient route towards the Command Center.
[20:52] *** Everyone rushes out of the chamber, quickly following the path Chibi-Antil and Negev went.
[20:54] *** And pause here for the night since I need to be signing out. I'll see you all next time. Thank you all for attending.
[19:21] *** Meanwhile, back onboard the [i]Frontline{/i], the battle continues to go terribly for the Griffin Dummy-Dolls.
[19:22] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin are all fighting their way through together
[19:23] * Veteran Sergeant Trajan and Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius charge ahead, moving quite quickly despite the massive armor they wear.
[19:24] * Veteran Sergeant Trajan PUNCHES open a side door, levels his massive 20mm cannon (an Astartes-scale Boltgun), fires off a few shots that hits the trio of T-Dolls lurking inside in center-mass and blasts them all apart from inside.
[19:25] * Veteran Sergeant Trajan tosses a grenade inside and rusumes moving.
[19:26] * Megan O`Cain plants a pad of C4 against a wall, and then detonates it from a safe distance to create some spalling into a room
[19:28] * Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius has stopped and is firing down the hall at a barricade, his boltgun booming like the Emperor's anger manifest.
[19:30] *** Further down the hall, behind a barricade, are several Dummy Dolls, including one of the ATGM teams. A pair of Machine Gun Girls are laying down a continuous barrage back down the corridor at EVERYONE.
[19:32] * Megan O`Cain watches David stand in front of her and her cousins as his barrier coupled with the charged Saturn Upgrade becomes active
[19:32] *** The Missile Team FIRES at David!
[19:34] * Capt. David O`Cain suddenly has armor plating over his upper arms and thighs as the rest of his armor doubles in size, and the missile impacts the barrier and armor, but he stays standing
[19:34] <Capt. David O`Cain> Atlas Rise, motherf[BLEEP]kers!
[19:35] *** The Dummy Dolls all concentrate fire, and a few of them throw greandes!
[19:45] * Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius and Veteran Sergeant Trajan concentrate fire. In a few seconds ALL of the Dummy Dolls have been struck dead-center and burst open internally.
[19:45] <Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius> Targets eliminated.
[19:46] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin walk-fire their weapons at the Dummy Dolls
[19:47] <Veteran Sergeant Trajan> It has been too long since I battled outside of that Dreadnaught body.
[19:49] * Zeabolos is cutting through the Dummy Solls as if they were mere paper-mache constructs. Ashmedia and Levia prove equally as deadly. Noel and Elphelt provide some ranged support.
[19:53] *** Elphelt and Noel suddenly come under sustained HEAVY cannon fire from Sniper Rifle Girls armed with BIG rifles!
[19:55] <Noel> ....getting real sick of this.
[19:55] * Noel and Elphelt return fire! Ashmedia and Levia sling some nasty magic towards the enemy --- they're about to get one of the nastiest shocks to their systems~
[19:56] * Several Dummies of NTW-20 are tucked away in hard-to-reach niches, firing away continuously at Noel and Elphelt with powerful anti-materiel rounds.
[19:57] <Ashmedia> Think it's time to take a page from that advertising character we saw.
[19:57] <Levia> ...if it's the one I'm thinking of, then yes. Let's~
[19:57] * Levia and Ashmedia sling different spells at the T-Dolls' hiding spots --- and faster than you can say "TORGUE!" we got some EXPLOOOOOOOOOOOOSIONS!!
[20:02] *** All of the NTW-20 Dummies are blown to pieces!
[20:03] *** An access panel SLIIIIIIIIDES open behind David.
[20:07] * M950a rolls out of the space and arms an Imperium-designed Krak grenade.
[20:10] * Capt. David O`Cain quickly turns and fires the Heavy Storm Bolter at M950a
[20:11] <M950a> AHHHHGGH!!
[20:12] <M950a> /EM staggers back, practically disemboweled by the attack!!
[20:13] * Capt. David O`Cain uses telekinesis to try pushing M950a away along with the Krak grenade
[20:15] *** A few seconds later the Krak grenade detonates...vaporizing the Dummy Doll entirely!
[20:19] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin all move on as they continue fighting
[20:21] * Solarchos (Orrus suit) advances with everyone, firing as he walks.
[20:24] * Solarchos (Orrus suit) fires gyroslug bursts from his forearm launchers, each salvo blowing a Dummy Doll in the distance in half.
[20:25] * Noel and Elphelt provide more ranged coverage.
[20:27] <The Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[20:27] * The Tundra Kits Continue their SWARM, even now gettign in YUOR way! :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:29] *** Suddenly, a massive barrage of heavy machine gun fire ENGULFS the corridor. It's a group of M2H2 and Negev Dummy-Dolls! And they're NOT CARING about who gets caught in the crossfire!!!
[20:32] <Noel> .....they don't know when to call it quits.
[20:33] * Capt. David O`Cain takes a few shots, and gladly returns fire with the Heavy Storm Bolter while Megan, Donovan, and Michelle all fire downrange at the Dummy Dolls with their respective M16A4s
[20:33] * M2HB is enjoying herself a lot as she blasts the HELL out of everyone!
[20:34] * Noel puts away her Bolverk set and gets the Gatling Cannon. Elphelt puts away her shotgun, Miss Traveler, and gets her sniper rifle, Miss Confire. Time to scrap some more Dummy Dolls!
[20:35] <The Tundra Kits> SWARRRRRRRM Faster, SWARMMMMM DEEPER >:D
[20:35] * M2HB pulls a Negev-dummy in front of her as a shield and lets HER get obliterated by Elphelt's and the O'Cains attacks.
[20:38] * M2HB is also shooting at the Foxes!!! SUCH A FIEND!!!
[20:39] * The Tundra Kits start SWARMING at M2HannaBarbera!!!
[20:42] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - DOWN! -
[20:43] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) has unholstered a weapon from behind his back: an ornately-designed musket that REEKS of barely-restrained magical energy,
[20:47] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) takes aim and FIRES
[20:48] <Noel> 0_o What in the world is that?!
[20:49] *** The musket discharges, sending out a single blast of energy that impacts among the MG Dummy-Dolls with the explosive force of a Baneblade's mega-cannon!!
[20:51] <Elphelt> goodness.
[20:51] <Capt. David O`Cain> Shiiiiiit.
[20:51] <Zeabolos> (I bet Ergo would love to wield something like that.)
[20:52] <Megan O`Cain> Holy f[BLEEP]k...
[20:52] *** All of the Dummy-Dolls are engulfed by the blast and shredded.
[20:52] <Donovan O`Cain> Sooooo don't wanna be on the receiving end.
[20:53] <Michelle O`Cain> That's gonna hurt. A lot!
[20:53] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) tosses the now-spent Mana-musket aside and strides forward, skewering the sole surviving Dummy Doll upon the Warp-Blade and allowing her to slide from the length, writhing and screaming. The Dummy-Doll perishes a few seconds later.
[20:56] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) FLINGS the Dummy-Doll off his sword and into the nearest wall, where she impacts with a massive BANG.
[20:56] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Are you all okay> -
[20:56] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> ^?
[20:56] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) quickly checks out the Tundra Kits in the area.
[20:58] <Michelle O`Cain> Fine, Solar! Thanks for the wipeout!
[20:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> I'm doing alright. Armor mode's holding up pretty good so far.
[20:59] <Levia> We're holding all right.
[21:00] <Noel> ~_~ I'm just ready for things to finally wrap up.
[21:02] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Resistance is diminishing. Overall we've eliminated over half of them. -
[21:05] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - These Dummy-Dolls are being sacrificed to hold us back. A smaller group are retreating deeper into the ship. More than likely they're the Core Models. -
[21:06] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to his sister and cousins, "Weren't we told not to destroy the Core Models?"
[21:07] <Donovan O`Cain> I think so.
[21:08] <Elphelt> Miss Persica did ask to ensure the Core Models didn't get destroyed.
[21:08] <Zeabolos> If that is the case, then I would guess she has some kind of plan for them?
[21:09] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - They're of great importance to her. -
[21:10] <Megan O`Cain> I think Elisa also said something similar. She too asked us not to destroy the Cores.
[21:12] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Then we hold back against them. -
[21:12] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - And we EXTERMINATE their Dummies. -
[21:13] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - They will PAY for jeopardizing my children. -
[21:14] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) resumes his advance, closely followed by Serbius, Trajan and the other Ghost Fox Space Marines.
[21:15] *** To be continued!
[19:12] *** Continuing where we left off last night.
[19:12] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:12] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-AnTil *** Happy Birthday, Ten'ou Haruka!!
[19:13] * Chibi-AnTil is quickly following behind Negev as she leads him further and further into the ship, towards a section at the fore of the vessel that looks like it's in relatively bad shape..
[19:13] *** Many of the walls are partially buckled and some sections of floor and ceiling have sprung from their moorings.
[19:16] <Chibi-AnTil> Are we almost there?
[19:16] <Negev> Yes, nearly so.
[19:16] <Chibi-AnTil> What part of the ship is this?
[19:22] <Negev> We're nearing the main bridge, but that was destroyed during the landing. However, we did reactivate a secondary bridge deeper within the ship. The directions you were given lead to there.
[19:27] <Negev> I didn't know there was a detention center there though.
[19:27] <Chibi-AnTil> I wonder what ELSE you T-Dolls don't know.
[19:27] * Negev gives Antil an annoyed look.
[19:33] * The Tundra Kits Swarm Lots lots
[19:36] <Negev> You know, has anyone ever told you you're annoying?
[19:36] <Chibi-AnTil> A few times.
[19:37] * The Tundra Kits now carry around plants that they've planted :D :D :D :D :D :D
[19:39] <Chibi-AnTil> But most of those people were pompous know-it-alls who took offense at me and my family for one reason or another.
[19:39] <Chibi-AnTil> And most of those reasons were dumb ones. Kinda centering around how we do things our own way.
[19:40] <Chibi-AnTil> I know of one lady who hates us just because we have fluffy tails.
[19:42] <Negev> Wait, there are Tundra Kits HERE too?!
[19:42] <Chibi-AnTil> Has anyone else from our group followed us this far?
[19:42] <The Tundra Kits> dappa, we bring gardening! :D
[19:44] <Negev> ...Gardening? At a time like this?!
[19:45] <Chibi-AnTil> I don't think there's too many places to plant anything around here.
[19:50] * Chibi-AnTil and Negev keep rushing through the hallways.
[19:53] <Chibi-AnTil> How much farther?
[19:53] <Negev> Not far.
[19:58] <Chibi-AnTil> Tundra Kits, how many of you are here right now?
[20:04] <The Tundra Kits> Lots lots :D
[20:05] *** Everyone finally enters into a large room filled with a great many workstations, data displays, planning tables, and communications consoles
[20:07] <Negev> All right, we're here.
[20:09] * Chibi-AnTil immediately starts looking for a certain wall panel.
[20:11] <Chibi-AnTil> All right, I know it's around here somewhere.
[20:16] * Chibi-AnTil looks underneath some of the consoles too.
[20:18] <Negev> What exactly are you looking for?
[20:18] <Chibi-AnTil> There's a hidden doorway in here.
[20:20] <Chibi-AnTil> Apparently, it was concealed in here a long time ago and no one knows about it.
[20:26] <Chibi-AnTil> I'm guessing it's NOT on the schematics.
[20:31] <Chibi-AnTil> Where is it...
[20:31] <Chibi-AnTil> COME ON! HELP ME OUT HERE!! BOTH of our people are getting put through hell!
[20:33] <Negev> Well what am I looking for?
[20:34] <The Tundra Kits> DOOR :D
[20:36] <Negev> But where?
[20:38] <Chibi-AnTil> Wait...Foxes! Can you hear or smell anything out of the ordinary in here?
[20:38] <Chibi-AnTil> A scent or sound that 's out of place?
[20:45] * Chibi-AnTil keeps looking.
[20:46] * The Tundra Kits all sniff-sniff
[20:47] *** There IS a faint scent in the air! Of cordite
[20:48] <The Tundra Kits> Strange smell :O
[20:48] * The Tundra Kits don't know what Cordite is!
[20:50] <Chibi-AnTil> Where?
[20:52] <The Tundra Kits> All over? :O
[20:52] <The Tundra Kits> faint! :D
[20:53] *** The smell is strongest in one part of the room.
[20:54] <The Tundra Kits> Me smell stronger :D
[20:55] * Chibi-AnTil goes over and finds a wall panel that
[20:55] <Chibi-AnTil> I think this is it!
[20:56] <Chibi-AnTil> Negev! I don't think we've got time to find the unlocking code. Can you destroy it?
[20:57] * Negev raises up her machine gun and EMPTIES it into the wall, punching holes into the thin metal and walking her fire back and forth expertly until the panel is perforated like swiss cheese.
[20:59] <Negev> ...I think I got it!
[21:00] * Chibi-AnTil perks his ears up as he hears something moving in the room beyond.
[21:00] <...> My oh my. I think someone out there likes destruction!
[21:00] <...> But that was too focused. I prefer explosions myself.
[21:00] <...> BIG ones!
[21:03] <...> And just who might YOU be, little fluffy-eared boy?
[21:03] <Chibi-AnTil> !!
[21:04] <Chibi-AnTil> Uhh, my name is AnTilZha Langister, eldest son of Solarchos Langister and Inu-Kit Amestris-Langister.
[21:05] <Chibi-AnTil> I've released you with the aid of your friends in Sangvis Ferri and told by Giger that...
[21:05] * Chibi-AnTil sighs as he remembers what was written on that note.
[21:06] <Chibi-AnTil> "I am your belated, fluffy Christmas present sent to deliver explosive tidings of joy."
[21:07] * ... starts laughing uproariously
[21:07] * Negev starts laughing too.
[21:07] <Negev> Seriously? One of the SF Ringleaders wanted you to say THAT?! XD
[21:09] <The Tundra Kits> :O :O
[21:10] <...> For all her stony seriousness, Gager DOES have a weird sense of humor. And she DID tell me to help you once you busted me out of here.
[21:10] <...> SO!!!!
[21:11] * A pale girl with dark hair and strange eyes emerges from the room, smiling the craziest grin ANYONE has ever seen as she steps out into the light.
[21:11] * A pale girl is now known as Architect
[21:12] <Architect> Tell me, little fluffy-boy! WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR ME TO BLOW UP FOR YOU??!! >:D
[21:15] <Negev> Wait! A Sangvis Ferri Ringleader was IN HERE this whole time?!
[21:15] <Chibi-AnTil> Apparently.
[21:16] <Chibi-AnTil> And now she's going to help us save YOUR KIND, Negev.
[21:17] <Chibi-AnTil> So my orders to you us put an end to this fighting and neutralize the Griffin T-Dolls.
[21:17] * Architect squats down and practically gives Chibi-AnTil a full-throttle yandere trance look with those creepy glowing eyes of hers!
[21:20] <Architect> I thought you'd never ask!!
[21:23] *** To be continued since it's now gotten late. And we draw nearer to the final showdown!
[21:23] *** Hopefully tomorrow won't be a late one for me. And I'll see you all next time. Take care and thank you for following along.
[19:33] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:37] * A lone Lunar Assault Corps dropship flies low over the treetops of the Zone's forests, swerving back and forth as needed to avoid airborne Anomalies now that they have a map that's updating in real time courtesy of the Tanar'ri
[19:46] * The transport is heading southeast, past Pripyat and into a previously unreached section of the Zone to where a hidden facility has been located.
[19:49] *** In the far distance, there are a great many fighter aircraft launching from outside the perimeter. The Neo-Soviets are going INSANE now that they've spotted what's obviously an enemy trans-atmospheric vessel hovering over the Zone.
[19:56] <M16A1> Looks like things are getting exciting out there.
[19:56] <Elisa> Yes.
[19:58] <Elisa> They know that something substantial is going on now that the Federation is drawing near.
[20:00] <Elisa> They might soon send in military forces to investigate.
[20:05] * Judge looks around nervously as the transport starts to descend.
[20:05] <Judge> How much farther is our destination?
[20:08] <M16A1> Not far. Lost Alpha is less than a mile away now.
[20:09] <Judge> And the others?
[20:09] * Elisa closes her eyes for a moment to concentrate.
[20:10] <Elisa> Agent's forces have succeeded in breaching the Frontline and have engaged the Griffin T-Dolls.
[20:11] <Elisa> Ouroboros' forces are still awaiting near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant as directed. Which is good. We will need her soon.
[20:12] <Elisa> Wait...the Onryo HIMSELF has joined the battle at the Frontline, along with a small force of Grey Fox Astartes.
[20:13] <M16A1> ///__O
[20:13] <Judge> O__o
[20:13] <Judge> Do they have any chance of repelling the assault now?
[20:14] <M16A1> Don't be foolish, Judge.
[20:14] <M16A1> Against a small group of Ghost Foxes, maybe. But not when they're supported by our own Dolls AND the Draugr.
[20:15] <Elisa> Correction, the Onryo is NOT fighting in the form of the Dark Angel of Death. No Draugr are with him. Curious.
[20:16] <Elisa> Either way, there is no way for Griffin to repel the assault. Persica with undoubtedly be in position soon.
[20:17] *** In the meantime, the transport has set down in an overgrown field, crushing a few small trees and bushes in the process. There are NO open areas nearby, so the transport sustains some minor hull damage in the process.
[20:19] *** But up ahead, surrounded by the vine-choked remains of a chain-link fence and hidden by trees that have sprouted within the perimeter, are the remains of a small cluster of buildings surrounding a crackling transmission tower.
[20:22] *** The tower looks like a small version of the emission array of the Brain Scorcher. A light not unlike a spotlight is shining up into the sky from the top of the tower, but it's flickering irregularly and is a strange shade of purple that's uncomfortable for any organic eye to focus on for long.
[20:23] *** The sky overhead is a mass of storm clouds, roiling angrily and frequently flashing with lightning, like a thunderstorm about to break. The air itself seems to tickle. Anyone touching anything metallic will receive a JOLT from static discharge.
[20:24] <Moon-Rabbit Pilot> I hope this is acceptably close for you.
[20:25] <The Tundra Kits> Dappa :3
[20:25] <M16A1> Yes, it is. Remain here and DO NOT leave the c[BLEEP]kpit under ANY circumstance.
[20:26] * Elisa and Judge are currently disembarking...and notice the Tundra Kits that apparently smuggled themselves onboard!
[20:26] <Elisa> ...
[20:26] <Judge> They're everywhere!
[20:27] * Elisa reaches down to stroke the ears of one of the Tundra Kits.
[20:27] * The Tundra Kits trills :3
[20:34] <Elisa> How many of you are here with us?
[20:35] <The Tundra Kits> lots lots :D
[20:36] * Judge and M16A1 start heading towards the buildings.
[20:37] * Elisa is following Judge and M16A1, leading the Tundra Kits with her.
[20:37] <Elisa> Do you know anything of this place, small ones?
[20:40] <Elisa> This is the place called Lost Alpha, and it is at the heart of the cancer that's threatening us.
[20:47] <The Tundra Kits> Dappa :D : D :D :D :D : D:D
[20:47] * Elisa waves her hand around. There's a sound on the air, like old-style stereo speakers rumbling DEEPLY at frequencies just below the Human range of hearing, but the volume is high enough to displace the air, making it shudder inside your lungs.
[20:48] <The Tundra Kits> :3
[20:49] <Elisa> There is a soul being uploaded into the very fabric of the Zone's noosphere makeup.
[20:51] <Elisa> That sound is the physical manifestation of a psychic resonance being imprinted into the fabric of time-space here in the Zone. Someone is literally uplifting itself into a new form of life: a being of psionic energy. Kind of like what you would call a "ghost".
[20:57] <The Tundra Kits> Oooooooo, Ghost foxes? :D
[20:59] <Elisa> No, not like the Space Marines.
[20:59] <Elisa> More like a demon. A vengeful specter of something that should not be.
[21:02] <Elisa> And I have identified WHO that demon truly is.
[21:08] <Elisa> And we are here to ELIMINATE that monster for good.
[21:09] * Judge rushes up.
[21:10] <Judge> Mastermind, we've found a way inside. There's a stairwell leading downwards in one of the outbuildings. M16A1 is investigating, but there appears to be an underground facility.
[21:12] <Elisa> This is indeed the place.
[21:12] <Elisa> JUDGE, I have instructions for you. For you Foxes as well.
[21:16] <Elisa> We are entering the facility. When M16A1 and I find our objective, it will be imperative that you follow our subsequent orders without question, hesitation, or THOUGHT.
[21:17] <Elisa> Even if you disagree with them, it will be imperative that you obey. Our success with be dependent on you at that point.
[21:17] <Judge> I will do as you command, of that you have my word.
[21:17] <Judge> But I don't understand your meaning.
[21:17] <The Tundra Kits> :O
[21:18] <Elisa> Understanding will not be required. Only obedience.
[21:19] <Elisa> Because our continued existence will hinge upon it.
[21:20] <Elisa> Now. Show us the way to those stairs.
[21:22] * Judge leads everyone towards a burnt-out shell of what once might have been a warehouse, to a hole in the floor where there might have been a concealed elevator. The shaft leads down a short distance, then opens into a small hallway where M16A1 is standing, looking back up at everyone.
[21:30] * Elisa hops down the shaft, landing lightly after a fall of eight feet.
[21:30] * Judge goes down with her.
[21:31] * Judge and Elisa pause to catch any Tundra Kits that wish to come with them.
[21:32] * The Tundra Kits some of them jump :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
[21:33] * M16A1 is away: The stairs are this way.
[21:33] *** Judge has left #suburbansenshi3 (Any threats detected?)
[21:34] *** Elisa has left #suburbansenshi3 (Double-time. Our sisters and allies are still in the middle of a battle. We must end this quickly for their sakes.)
[18:02] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[18:03] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi and HK416 lead the way towards the Command Center of the Frontline
[18:04] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> How much farther? I think we're running out of time.
[18:04] <HK416> Not far. And what makes you think we're running out of time?
[18:05] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi points behind her, indicating the distant sounds of gunfire and harsh booming of Astartes-pattern boltguns firing.
[18:05] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> You're fast running out of Dummy-dolls to throw at the Federation.
[18:07] <Persica> Just get me to the comm system and the Zener Network.
[18:10] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Fill me in on the current tactical situation.
[18:12] <Helianthus> It's bad.
[18:14] <Helianthus> Very bad. The fabricators are currently churning out replacement Dummy-Dolls as quickly as possible, but the attrition rates are terrible.
[18:14] <Helianthus> At this rate we have maybe 30 minutes before ALL of our available resources are expended. Once that happens, the Core Models will have nothing between them and the Van Saar.
[18:19] * Chibi-Catri is grinning happily as she hears the boltguns in the distance. ^__^
[18:24] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Is there anything we can do to forestall this outcome?
[18:24] <Kalina> Maybe pay off the Onryo~?
[18:24] <Helianthus> Perhaps take direct control of the Core Models and coordinate a fighting retreat?
[18:25] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger pauses and thinks for a moment.
[18:29] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Helianthus...take control of the remaining T-Doll forces and organize them against the Van Saar. Buy more time for Persica.
[18:30] <Chibi-Catri> Wait what?!
[18:30] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Am I hearing you correctly?
[18:30] <Persica> Sir..?
[18:31] <HK416> NO Commander! We've already antagonized the Van Saar enough!
[18:32] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Unit HK416, you will return to the others with Commander Helianthus and work with her to organize the remaining Dolls. Obey her commands and push back against the Van Saar.
[18:32] <HK416> NO!!
[18:33] <HK416> If we do that it will only enrage the Onryo even further! He is HERE, which means he feels this matter is serious enough to demand his personal attention! Other allies have come and they're lending their full strength as well!
[18:34] <HK416> You should have seen the battle at the exterior of the ship!
[18:37] <HK416> The Heavy Ordinance Corps could barely even slow down the monster they summoned! The T-Dolls even used a CATAPULT to fling a Warthog loaded with EXPLOSIVES at it and it didn't even do ANYTHING!!
[18:44] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> You STILL act like you have a choice, T-Doll.
[18:45] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger pulls out a pistol from his greatcoat and aims it at HK416's head...much to EVERYONE'S surprise.
[18:46] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> This is NOT the time for more fo your games. Our LIVES and the continued existence of your fellow Dolls are at stake. You are built to carry out our orders and save US from this new threat.
[18:48] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> will do as I instruct and carry out the orders Helianthus gives you.
[18:49] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> As always, there will be...CONSEQUENCES should you try any attempt to sabotage the effort to stall the Van Saar.
[18:50] <Shizuka> And what exactly is this "new threat" you're going on about?
[18:52] <Chibi-Catri> Likely it's Daddy's presence here~!
[18:54] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> And probably whatever force is responsible for corrupting so many T-Dolls.
[18:58] <Persica> Kryuger...
[19:03] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Unit HK416, you will carry out the orders I have given you. You are built for a specific purpose. Now CARRY THAT PURPOSE OUT.
[19:04] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> I'm not sure what your issue is, Commander Kryuger...BUT NO.
[19:04] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi aims her M-23 submachine gun at Commander Kryuger.
[19:05] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> This operation is under FEDERATION control and technically...
[19:05] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> ...You are all under Federation CUSTODY.
[19:08] <Chibi-Catri> So Big Sister HK416 doesn't have to do anything you tell her to!
[19:08] <Chibi-Catri> >:3
[19:09] <Chibi-Catri> Shizuka?
[19:09] <Shizuka> Hm?
[19:10] <Chibi-Catri> Would you please take away Commander Angry-Bear's gun?
[19:11] * Shizuka simply holds her hand up --- one second it's empty, the next --- whoops, how did Kryuger's gun get there?!
[19:13] <Shizuka> I owe Sif one for teaching me this♫
[19:14] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> What?!
[19:14] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> >:[
[19:15] <Kalina> >__>;
[19:15] <Helianthus> <__<;;
[19:17] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> How DARE you usurp my authority here!
[19:19] <Chibi-Catri> :P
[19:19] <Mammon> What "authority", bub? Take a good look around --- whatever pals you have remaining are woefully limited.
[19:19] <HK416> ...
[19:19] <Chibi-Catri> What's that old joke about someone named Jack?
[19:23] <HK416> Miss Helianthus. Please take me to where you need me to assist you with coordinating the other T-Doll's defensive efforts.
[19:27] <HK416> The situation is dire, and the tactical assessment you gave is sound. Unless the T-Dolls can be effectively coordinated there will be no hope for their survival.
[19:33] <Helianthus> WANT to carry out Kryuger's orders?
[19:33] <HK416> I am CHOOSING to carry them out.
[19:36] <HK416> If we cannot delay the Van Saar's assault, the Core Model T-Dolls will inevitably be drawn into direct combat. That will likely lead to a high chance of them being destroyed in battle.
[19:37] <HK416> According to Persica, it's imperative that this be avoided. Therefore, I will do what must be done to prevent that from happening.
[19:38] <HK416> If that means engaging the Van Saar in battle in order to buy time for Persica to implement her plan, then so be it.
[19:41] <Helianthus> Very well. Follow me.
[19:42] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi turns slightly, almost like she's preparing to aim at HK416 and Helianthus.
[19:43] <HK416> Petty Officer Hiiragi. Please let me do this. I will do everything I can to avoid causing any injuries to the Van Saar, but they must be stalled.
[19:44] <Burroughs> (Wonder if I should tell 'em about how everyone else is making certain the Core models are unharmed.....)
[19:47] <HK416> If the battle continues to go against them as badly it has been, they may become desperate.
[19:47] <HK416> Helianthus will hopefully be able to prevent that.
[20:02] <HK416> I won't ask any of you to put yourselves at further risk to help us.
[20:03] <HK416> All I ask is that you permit me to do this. UMP-9 and G-11 are out there somewhere, as is UMP-45. I have to help them
[20:07] <The Tundra Kits> :3
[20:11] <HK416> MEIN GOTT, THEY'RE HERE TOO??!?
[20:11] <Chibi-Catri> Ooooooo! Friends!! :D
[20:11] <Helianthus> O__O
[20:11] <Helianthus> Adorable!
[20:12] <The Tundra Kits> lotsa friends :D
[20:12] * Helianthus is normally very stern-faced, but she displays uncharacteristic glee as she flops backwards and presents herself to the Tundra Kits to crawl all over her as they wish!!!!!
[20:13] * The Tundra Kits indeed do, Giving tailpats to ALL!
[20:15] <HK416> No! NO!! Don't! You can't! NOT HERE!!!
[20:15] <HK416> NOT...GugggGGhghghGGHH
[20:15] * HK416 flops to the ground as she's overcome by the FLOOF. @___@
[20:16] <Nemissa> ...hoo boy. Anyway... Persica, how're we looking?
[20:17] <Persica> Just up ahead!
[20:18] * Persica points down the hallway at a sealed pressure door leading into the Auxiliary AI Server Nexus.
[20:23] <Persica> That's where we need to be. Once we get inside, I can start accessing the Zener Network.
[20:28] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin are all fighting elsewhere in the base
[20:29] * Nemissa and everyone works to help Persica get into the room she needs. Meanwhile, Noel and Elphelt are using pinpoint-precise shots to take down the Dummy Dolls, as Zeabolos and his bunch are proving monstrously strong, their blows and slices easily dismantling any resistance.
[20:33] *** Trajan and Serbius follow to either side of Solarchos, devastating any remaining pockets of resistance.
[20:34] * The Tundra Kits are all trying to pounce! :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D
[20:36] *** The remaining T-Dolls are falling back in a panic, with a few of the Core Models attempting to do battle in order to buy time for their sisters.
[20:39] *** The Core Model T-Dolls are all retreating back into one of the launch bays, sealing pressure doors and welding shut ventilation shafts as they go.
[20:40] *** They're even taking special care to close the entrances through which the SWARM could appear!
[20:47] * The Tundra Kits all trill, could it be...:D :3 :3 :D
[20:51] *** The last of the T-Dolls SLAM the final doors in place...with the AR Team remaining outside to provide a Final Defense.
[20:53] * M4A1 , ST AR-15, and Sopmod remain outside the launch bay, aiming their weapons back down the hallway at the approaching enemy forces, ready to face permanent deletion if it gives the others a chance to escape.
[20:56] <ST AR-15> This is it then.
[20:56] <M4A1> The last stand of the AR Team.
[21:06] <Sopmod-2> :<
[21:06] <Sopmod-2> No more playing with you all?
[21:08] <M4A1> Probably not. But we have to buy time for all of our other friends to escape.
[21:08] <ST AR-15> Where to? It's not like there are any ships they can fly off of.
[21:09] <M4A1> You just have to have what the Humans call "faith". That something will reveal itself.
[21:10] <M4A1> Now...let's make ready.
[21:10] *** The three T-Dolls quickly begin crouching behind the damaged barricades and pile up the bodies of destroyed Dummy-Dolls to use as cover.
[21:11] <ST AR-15> And let's hope that they are merciful and don't destroy our cores outright.
[21:12] <Sopmod-2> Maybe they'll install them inside Dinergates like I did with RO-635 that one time? :D
[21:16] <ST AR-15> No.
[21:16] <ST AR-15> Just no.
[21:17] <M4A1> Let's just focus on selling ourselves as dearly as possible to the Van Saar! HERE THEY COME!!
[21:18] *** At the far end of the passage, they can see the hulking shapes of the enemy approaching...and beady little eyes that stare into their SOUUUUUULLLLLLLLLSSSS~!!!!
[21:19] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin aren't that far behind the hulking shapes
[21:19] <Levia> Remember what Miss Persica asked for... aim to disable.
[21:20] *** Take care until then everyone. Good night!
[19:13] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:14] * M4A1 ST AR-15, and Sopmod-2 duck behind their improvised cover and open fire back down the corridor, moving after every burst and avoiding staying in the same place for long to avoid becoming stationary targets.
[19:18] * Capt. David O`Cain changes to the Jupiter Upgrade, aims a hand at one of the Griffon T-Dolls, and fires a ball of electricity at them
[19:18] * Noel and Elphelt use pinpoint accuracy to disable as many targets as possible. Zeabolos and his people make use of their weaponry to deflect as many projectiles headed their way as possible.
[19:21] * Sopmod-2 flings grenades, while M4A1 and AR-15 keep firing with insane accuracy with their gauss rifles. They're actually using variants of Morrigan-pattern gauss rifles too!
[19:22] <Sopmod-2> >:D
[19:22] * Sopmod-2 advances!!
[19:23] <The Tundra Kits> :3
[19:25] * Capt. David O`Cain suddenly chucks a trio of electrified oak leaves at Sopmod-2 in an effort to disable her
[19:26] * Elphelt lines up a shot... aiming at the kneecaps..... and FIRE!!
[19:27] * Sopmod-2 picks up the speed and quickly reaches a full sprint!!
[19:28] * Sopmod-2 staggers as she takes a glancing blow to one of her knees,but that only slows her down a little!
[19:28] *** M4A1 and AR-15 concentrate fire on Elphelt, trying to pin her down until Sopmod-2 can close the distance!
[19:29] * Sopmod-2 just grits her teeth as O'Cain's electrical attack singes her clothes and skin. If anything, she looks even MORE excited now!
[19:30] * Noel fires at M4A1 and AR-15!
[19:30] * Sopmod-2 starts laughing as she fires from the hip, spraying EVERYONE with bullets as she charges headlong at you all, ignoring the return fire that's hitting her.
[19:31] <Ashmedia> My my, so naughty! Someone needs a spanking --- and I'll be all too happy to deliver♡
[19:31] * AR-15 takes a direct hit and staggers back, her segmented armor coat absorbing the worst of the hit, but getting shredded in the process.
[19:32] * M4A1 reloads, stands atop of the pile of deck plating she was using as cover, and starts RAPID-FIRING at everyone like crazy!
[19:32] * Capt. David O`Cain quickly combines the Jupiter and Saturn Upgrades to create an electrified oak leaf barrier (think transparent oak leaves overlapping each other) to protect himself as well as his sister and cousins
[19:32] * Sopmod-2 runs out of shots and just THROWS her rifle at Ashmedia's head!
[19:34] * Ashmedia uses one of her weapons to deflect the rifle --- and then telekinetically hurls the other one at Sopmod! My god, its speed is enough to almost ionize the air around it! If it hits, it's going to HURT!!
[19:36] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin all fire either electrified oak leaves or balls of electricity at the T-Dolls
[19:36] * Sopmod-2 smacks the object aside on her prosthetic arm, her arm sparking and armor-plate shattering on impact, but it doesn't slow her down at all.
[19:36] <Sopmod-2> >:D
[19:37] * The Tundra Kits are scurrying around..... EVERYWHERE!
[19:37] <Sopmod-2> Scream for me!
[19:39] *** Meanwhile, M4A1 and AR-15 are trying to avoid shooting the little Tundra Kits and instead focus on the Sangvis Ferri Dolls that are steadily marching forward and screening everyone else from direct har,
[19:39] *** ^direct harm
[19:41] * Sopmod-2 dives at Ashmedia, whipping out a combat blade and hacking at her with unbelievable speed and viciousness. "Soppo" is INFAMOUS for being not only a close-quarters PSYCHO, but an absolute SADIST in these situations.
[19:41] * Capt. David O`Cain along with Megan, Donovan, and Michelle, are all using their Jupiter Upgrades at the T-Dolls in an effort to disable them
[19:42] * Sopmod-2 laughs insanely as she engages Ashmedia, cutting, jabbing, advancing, feinting, withdrawing, and flanking, all within the span of a single second, her eyes glowing bright red and her face a dismaying combination of eagerness and childlike wonder.
[19:43] * Ashmedia is showing the ability to react to Sopmod with ease. However, those that actually know how Ashmedia is would tell you that close-range engagement is the WORST idea.
[19:43] *** AR-15 takes another massive hit that causes her to drop to her knees.
[19:43] *** M4A1 reloads again and burst-fires at EVERYONE, still holding her ground despite the hits she's taking.
[19:44] * Sopmod-2 is...holding her own?! If anything she's getting MORE excited as the level of resistance increases.
[19:45] * AR-15 tries to get back up and looks around.
[19:45] <Ashmedia> You feel it too, don't you? That raw adrenaline, the feeling of pure excitement....
[19:45] * Megan O`Cain suddenly teleports behind M4A1, and goes for a flying knee to the head as she exits
[19:46] <Sopmod-2> Yeeesssssssssssssss~! You're smiling too!
[19:46] <Ashmedia> Of course♡
[19:46] <The Tundra Kits> Happy fluffy to you! happy fluffy to you! >:D
[19:50] *** M4A1 takes a direct hit from the surprise attack and almost falls over!
[19:50] <AR-15> ..............
[19:51] * AR-15 checks to see if she's been surrounded by Tundra Kits!!! >__>;; <__<;;
[19:51] * The Tundra Kits are surrounding.................. EVERYONE!
[19:51] * Megan O`Cain quickly follows up her attack with a suplex if the grab connects on M4A1
[19:52] * Sopmod-2 TOTALLY throws herself into hand-to-hand combat with Ashmedia, laughing insanely and clearly enjoying every moment of the battle as it escalates.
[19:53] * Ashmedia continues her fight against Sopmod, clearly getting more and more excited as the fight continues. This Fallen One is nuts!
[19:54] *** The battle between Sopmod-2 and Ashmedia might as well have THIS as the background music!
[19:55] * AR-15 tries to evade the Tundra Kits before they swarm her!
[19:56] *** M4A1 sustains the ultimate blow of a GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!!!! Ooooo, and her panties are WHITE!
[19:56] * M4A1 is OUT OF ACTION!!
[19:56] * Megan O`Cain gives Solar the thumbs up, "That's one down."
[19:57] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) seems...distracted. Why is he aiming his bolt-launcher in a different direction than everyone else? Why are Trajan and Serbius doing the same?!
[19:58] * The Tundra Kits Are playful and SWARM!
[19:58] <Zeabolos> Ashmedia.... remember what Ergo and Ragon said.
[19:59] <Ashmedia> No worries, little Zeabolos♫ I've got it handled~
[20:00] <Ashmedia> In fact....
[20:00] * AR-15 screams and flails wildly as she's ENGULFED by the Tundra Kits and subjected to Tail Tickle Torture.
[20:01] * AR-15 is OUT OF ACTION.
[20:02] *** Megan O'Cain, you catch movement out of the corner of your eye and OFFICIALLY have an all-new problem on ALL of your hands!
[20:02] <Megan O`Cain> The hell?
[20:03] * Ashmedia brings a hand up, and snaps her fingers. At various points during her engagement against Sopmod, she worked to sneak in a few finger-touches here and there. Can you say..... Omoe wa mou shinderu?!
[20:03] *** Most of the Sangvis Ferri Dolls turn and open fire on everyone, starting with a bunch of other Sangvis Ferri Dolls, catching THEM by surprise and blasting them apart from behind!
[20:04] <Sopmod-2> NANI?!
[20:06] * Ashmedia made use of a little time-delayed paralysis. Give it a few seconds and Sopmod will be living up to the "Doll" part as she might experience a 200% loss of feeling within her everything.
[20:06] <Executioner> What the hell?! The Dolls are turning on each other!
[20:06] <Zeabolos> Did something overtake them?
[20:07] <Levia> It feels like some kind of madness....
[20:07] <Destroyer> They're shooting at me! Waaaaaaahhhh~!!! T__T
[20:08] <Noel> .......
[20:08] <Scarecrow> They're not responding to commands! Ringleader protocols have been overridden!
[20:08] <Michelle O`Cain> What do we do?!
[20:10] <~Agent> Keep fighting! I've received a confirmation signal from Architect AND Alchemist! Both have been released by young AnTilZha. He was successful in reaching the command center!
[20:11] <Noel> Keep them busy, then.... understood.
[20:11] * Noel 's eyes have turned blue --- what?
[20:12] * Michelle O`Cain starts firing balls of electricity that become localized EMP upon contact with enemy T-Dolls, including the turncoat SF Dolls
[20:13] *** Meanwhile, Sopmod-2 is flailing and jerking so much she looks like she's BREAKDANCING. BADLY.
[20:15] * Noel begins firing to disable the other T-Dolls with efficiency that actually begins to frighten Elphelt. What just happened to her?
[20:17] <Elphelt> ....Noel?
[20:17] * Sopmod-2 collapses and is now OUT OF ACTION.
[20:27] * Donovan O`Cain does the same thing as Michelle
[20:27] *** Several Close-combat SF dolls close on Noel and try to stab her with monoknives or BASH her with shields!
[20:28] *** One of them attempts to stab Donovan in the neck...but her hand is blown off by a well-placed burst that sends her weapon flying to the side!
[20:29] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan fire shots from their rifles (David with the M372A3, Megan with her M16A4) at the turncoats
[20:29] *** A flash-bang grenade goes off, distracting the SF Dolls momentarily, then several more are gunned down by continuous SMG fire!
[20:29] *** Friendly reinforcements have arrived as two T-Dolls rush up to assist everyone!
[20:30] * Out of nowhere several blades flash into existence to bat aside the close-combat dolls! They then go to surround Noel, whom still has one hell of a stare on her.....
[20:30] *** HK416 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:30] <@spiritflame> konbanwa HK416
[20:30] *** UMP-45 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:30] <@spiritflame> konbanwa UMP-45
[20:32] <Noel> ......
[20:34] * UMP-45 howls a battle-cry in German and charges into the fight alongside HK416, both of them helping to quickly gun down the rogue SF Dolls!
[20:37] * HK416 whips out her pistol and starts making head-shots left and right.
[20:38] * UMP-45 tries firing her gun from the hip...and is MISSING most of the time. In fact, her overall accuracy is NOT that good.
[20:38] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin are all firing at the turncoat SF Dolls
[20:38] * Noel continues forward, her blades flashing out to knock the other T-Dolls for several loops. Elphelt is noticeably terrified, but has to shelve her fear for her friend.
[20:42] * Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius shoots an SF Doll in the face with his bolt-pistol, blasting her head open and knocking her backwards from the impact. Another SF Doll (a Guard) attempts to bash him with her shield, but he flings it aside, smashes HER across the face with his pistol, then proceeds to SAW her in half upon the revving teeth of his chainsword.
[20:43] *** The mess is EXTRAORDINARY!!
[20:44] <Capt. David O`Cain> How the hell did some of these Dolls with us turn on us?
[20:45] *** The last of the rogue SF Dolls fall, either gunned down, smacked up, or physically picked up and used to bludgeon OTHER SF Dolls to death.
[20:45] <Elphelt> I think their coding might've been overwritten, either by a latent trigger or someone using an override.
[20:47] <Michelle O`Cain> If it's an override, who did it?
[20:48] <Elphelt> I'm not certain... hopefully the other team is onto something.
[20:51] * Michelle O`Cain nods
[20:51] <Megan O`Cain> So, what's next on the list?
[20:53] * Noel has her blades come to rest behind her, fanned out to look like wings. Her eyes sweep around, as if looking for something.
[20:53] <HK416> I don't know what happened here.
[20:54] <HK416> MUST halt your advance!
[20:55] <HK416> The Core Model T-Dolls have retreated. Persica is nearly at the Auxiliary communications center and the Zener Network servers.
[20:56] <HK416> Cease your aggression and give them the time they need to enact their plan.
[20:56] * UMP-45 strokes a few Tundra Kits while she's reloading.
[20:58] * Noel blinks, and suddenly her eyes are green once more. "Eh? What the--- HK, where'd you come from?"
[21:00] * Megan O`Cain raises an eyebrow, "Cease our attack?"
[21:01] <HK416> I just got here...
[21:01] <UMP-45> The Griffin T-Dolls are in full retreat.
[21:01] <UMP-45> They're no longer a threat to you.
[21:02] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[21:03] * Noel blinks. It's like she blanked out for a moment --- the blades that were behind here also vanish into thin air.
[21:05] <UMP-45> I think...I think what's happened is that what Intruder did to UMP-9 and G-11 might have also been done to the other Sangvis Ferri Dolls.
[21:06] <Elphelt> You mean that nano-paste that turned them hostile? Miss Burroughs and Miss Nemissa made mention of it when Noel and I were reactivated.
[21:07] <Megan O`Cain> Where is Intruder? The sooner we find her, the sooner we can stop this s[BLEEP]t.
[21:08] <Noel> Uhmm... is there a way to deactivate this nano-paste's effects? Maybe even turn it against them?
[21:14] <UMP-45> I think Persica has an idea. It's probably why she's accessing the Zener Network.
[21:15] <Megan O`Cain> What's that?
[21:15] <Noel> Here's hoping it all goes well for them. Personally I feel ever-so-ready for a break from all of this madness...
[21:15] <Noel> Just wanna sit down and hug a panda....
[21:20] <The Tundra Kits> you'll be hugging fluffies soon enough >:D
[21:25] <UMP-45> Wait here. Defend this area.
[21:26] <Megan O`Cain> What are you up to, 45?
[21:26] <UMP-45> We'll rejoin the young ones and coordinate with you. Will that be acceptable?
[21:26] <HK416> 45 is up to her usual scheming, that's what. But in this case I agree with her.
[21:29] <Megan O`Cain> Solar? What do you say?
[21:30] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Fine. -
[21:31] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - I give you TEN minutes. Then the ones responsible for harming my children will be exterminated. Without mercy. -
[21:38] <Megan O`Cain> Lovely. More hurry up and wait.
[21:38] <HK416> Ten minutes?!
[21:38] <UMP-45> The Dark Angel of Death is being generous, 416.
[21:42] * UMP-45 and HK416 rush off, leaving everyone for now.
[21:42] *** And Helianthus? Where is she? Wasn't she with HK416?
[21:43] * Helianthus is currently lying on the ground, covered with Tundra Kits and enduring MULTIPLE fluffy tails and paw-patters.
[21:44] <Megan O`Cain> See ya, than.
[21:46] *** And pause here for the night. We shall continue again tomorrow. I hope you all had some fun with everything this evening.
[19:26] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...or more specifically CONTINUING FROM WHERE LAST NIGHT ENDED.
[19:30] * Chibi-Catri rushes ahead of everyone towards that pressure door that leads into the Auxiliary Comm Center and the Zener Network servers.
[19:30] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Careful, Catriona! Don't get too far ahead!
[19:30] * Megan O`Cain has gotten out a deck of cards, and starts playing card games with her brother and cousins
[19:32] * Burroughs and Nemissa work on updating their respective factions about their progress. Shizuka and Mammon, in the meanwhile, are keeping vigil for anything or anyone that might attempt to impede their progress.
[19:32] * Persica is picking up her own pace, closely followed by Kryuger, Seele, and Deele.
[19:33] <Deele> We should have gone with HK416. She and the others in Squad 404 might need our help.
[19:34] <Persica> No, I'll need both of your help much more with modifying the Zener Network. We have to bring it online fully, have the T-Dolls link into it, and bring down the firewalls.
[19:35] * Seele looks a little confused. "Won't that render them all open to viral infection from something like Parapaluie?
[19:36] <Persica> Parapaluie is the least of their concerns. Besides, other plans have been put into place.
[19:36] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Like?
[19:37] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> You still haven't explained in detail just WHAT you are planning to do with MY T-Dolls.
[19:39] <Persica> The plan is to purge them of the Last Command, but the only way to do so would be to wipe it from all of them simultaneously. Otherwise they might cross-infect each other once again. Elisa of Sangvis Ferri has a plan. We just need to open the Network and notify her. She's already in position at Lost Alpha.
[19:40] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> I thought you were going to access the Network once the Brain Scorcher was down and attack the Chernobyl NPP?
[19:40] <Persica> Lost Alpha is even more important. And apparently the primary targets at Chernobyl are gone, remember?
[19:42] * Chibi-Catri reaches the door and starts accessing the controls.
[19:45] *** The controls don't respond.
[19:45] <Chibi-Catri> Do we need a code or something?
[19:46] <Persica> Yes, it's access-controlled. I would have access, as would Kryuger.
[19:47] * Chibi-Catri nods and accesses her clyuno. "Brother, I'm at the Zener Network servers. Have you finished up with what you were doing?"
[19:48] <Chibi-AnTil> Yes, we've found and released Architect. She's with us now. What about you?
[19:49] <Chibi-Catri> We've released the last Griffin survivors. The commander wasn't too happy about things, but he'll have to deal with it all. HK416 has gone to try and delay Daddy's assault and give Persica time to finish things on her end.
[19:50] <Chibi-AnTil> Have you tried contacting Dad at all? I mean he's right here.
[19:51] <Chibi-Catri> I've tried but something is jamming my signal. I can only contact you. Maybe because our transponders are acting like repeaters or something?
[19:52] <Chibi-AnTil> Nevermind then. Negev, Architect, and I are heading towards you now.
[19:54] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger swipes his access card over the pressure door's lock-sensor. The vault-like door starts to open.
[19:54] *** As the door opens partway, a barrage of pulse-laser fire ERUPTS from within the room and tears into the corridor!!
[19:55] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger is hit several times in the arm, shoulder, and waist and goes down!!
[19:56] * Seele is struck in the hip and thigh. She immediately cries out and falls.
[19:56] * Shizuka and Mammon quickly act to deflect what they can and keep any other damage to a minimum. "Seems they were waiting for us!"
[19:57] * Chibi-Catri is hit in the forearm and yelps loudly!!!
[19:58] *** Inside the room, two female figures await, both dressed in the dark contrasting clothing of Sangvis Ferri.
[19:59] *** The first Ringleader is certainly hard to ignore but something in her eyes seems off given how blank and dull they are.
[20:00] *** The second Ringleader is definitely working the Loli-Goth look but she has a particularly sadistic and mocking grin on her face.
[20:01] * Alchemist is blasting away with her paired gun-blades, while Dreamer keeps firing away with that rapid-fire cannon she's carrying as easily as a light-caliber rifle.
[20:02] *** Wait just a DAMN SECOND! Dreamer was with everyone during the initial attack!! She was part of Agent's command staff!!! WHY IS SHE HERE?!
[20:02] * Mammon makes use of her daggers, the Twin Bandits, to deflect the gun and laser-fire. Shizuka works to heal those that had been shot. (Could use their hand right about now...)
[20:03] <Burroughs> (Did something else -- FRY THEIR -- disrupt their processors?)
[20:09] <Dreamer> Hello all! Care to stick your heads out for me?
[20:10] <Dreamer> Seems like I outsmarted you all. Too bad that was hardly difficult to do! O-HO-HO-HO-HO-Ho!!
[20:14] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi quickly peeks around the corner of the now-opened door and fires a burst at one of the SF Ringleaders.
[20:14] <Mammon> ...someone thinks a little too highly of themselves.
[20:19] * Burroughs goes to roll something at Alchemist and Dreamer.
[20:23] * Alchemist moves quickly and SLASHES at the "something" Burroughs tried to roll at them.
[20:24] * Oooh, bad move! Alchemist just sliced up a ball comprised of 50% Flash Bangs and 50% Electrical Death! Get shocked, stunned, blinded and deafened all at once!!
[20:33] <Alchemist> :O
[20:33] * Alchemist is physically BLOWN into the air and BOUNCES off of the ceiling overhead!!!
[20:33] <Dreamer> Oooo, that's going to hurt. No matter. Her purpose is served.
[20:34] <Dreamer> And judging by all of the noise in the background, I see my little surprise was sprung!
[20:37] <Dreamer> What, you seem surprised! You were expecting Intruder perhaps?
[20:38] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi rushes through the doorway while Kryuger manages to sit up, take aim with a pistol, and fire off a bunch of random shots aimed at the ceiling to try and force Dreamer to flinch.
[20:38] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> F[BLEEP]king B[BLEEP]CH!!!
[20:41] <The Tundra Kits> :3
[20:41] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi manages to duck behind a big blocky machine housing before Dreamer can return fire on her, shredding the entire front face of the machine.
[20:43] *** Another fox is charging ahead of the Tundra Kits! She's a rangy thing with ragged coppery fur, but she's moving with a determination that's almost fearsome to behold.
[20:43] *** Zone Fox has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:43] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Zone Fox *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[20:44] * Zone Fox is yipping and chattering excitedly, calling out to the Kitsune children who'd been her constant companions for so long a year ago.
[20:45] * Chibi-Catri pulls herself to the side of the corridor, out of Dreamer's line-of-sight to inspect the injury she took.
[20:45] <The Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :D :D
[20:45] <Chibi-Catri> Ow. Owowowowowow
[20:46] * Chibi-Catri pulls a nail-like sliver of metal out of her forearm.
[20:46] <Chibi-Catri> She's using a gauss needler! Everyone be careful! Those are armor-piercers!
[20:47] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> As if that means anything to ME since this coat ISN'T armored.
[20:47] <Burroughs> Well, in that case... Shizuka, if you'd be so kind.
[20:47] * Shizuka realizes it's time for that.
[20:48] * Deele and Persica have pulled Seele to the side. The cute, bespectacled girl is shuddering and gasping a lot and just staring up at the ceiling in panic.
[20:49] <Persica> ...Dammit!! Seele was hit low in her ribcage! I think one of the needles might have pierced her lung! She's going to need a doctor fast!
[20:50] * Shizuka pulls out what looks like a cannon with teeth on its muzzle. "B[BLEEP]ches love Cannons!" She fires what looks like horrendous corroding gas at Dreamer!!
[20:50] * Someone goes to lay a hand on Seele and focus an intense Heal spell. Wait, why does their hand look.... smoky?
[20:51] * Dreamer SHRIEKS as the cloud engulfs her. She's NOT made of metal like Creepio, but the gas does damage her weapon and does a real number of scalding her flesh.
[20:52] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi quickly stands up, takes aim, and starts firing on FULL AUTO into Dreamer.
[20:52] <Shizuka> (Your turn, Nemissa!)
[20:53] * Nemissa takes this opportunity to zip past Dreamer whilst she's still reeling from the gas and bullets.
[20:56] * The Tundra Kits go up to th Zone fox and tailpats galore :D :3 :D :3
[20:58] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-AnTil *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[20:58] *** Negev has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Negev *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[20:58] *** Architect has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Architect *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[20:59] *** Antil's group arrives and quickly rush into the server room from a different door on the far side of the place.
[20:59] <Chibi-AnTil> Officer Hiiragi?
[20:59] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> :D
[21:00] <Negev> What the?!
[21:00] <Architect> ...Why is Alchemist looking like she just got body-slammed by a tank? And why do I smell...
[21:00] <Architect> Explosives?! :D
[21:00] <Burroughs> Long story short...
[21:01] * Burroughs explains to Negev and Architect about what Alchemist and Dreamer did the second the door was opened.
[21:02] * Zone-Fox gallops up to Catriona and DIVES onto her, lick-licking her face like crazy and waggling her tail insanely fast! :P
[21:06] <Chibi-Catri> Hey! It's our little friend from when we were first here! She's still alive!
[21:06] * Alchemist suddenly lurches forward and starts dragging herself across the floor like a snake on amphetamines!
[21:08] * Alchemist hears Chibi-Catri talking, lurches out the doorway, takes aim with one of her pistols, and FIRES!!
[21:08] <Zone-Fox> :O
[21:09] * Zone-Fox interposes herself between Chibi-Catri and Alchemist!!
[21:10] * Zone-Fox lets out a HORRID shriek as the shot punches into her flank, sending the fox spinning backwards into the wall. She hits the ground and writhes in extreme pain.
[21:10] <Chibi-Catri> :O
[21:10] <The Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:10] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Oh no!!!
[21:10] <~> - .....pardon me for a moment. -
[21:10] <The Tundra Kits> >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[
[21:10] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger takes aim!
[21:11] * Chibi-Catri takes aim!
[21:11] * Negev takes aim!
[21:11] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi takes aim!
[21:11] * The one that was healing Seele suddenly disappears from view, to appear near Alchemist to drive a foot THROUGH Alchemist and pin her down so everyone else can potshot the everloving f[BLEEP]k outta her!!
[21:12] *** All four of them open fire on Alchemist and concentrate fire on her for a full TEN SECONDS...which is how long it took for Negev's belt-fed machine gun to FINALLY run out of shots.
[21:14] * Alchemist now looks like an absolute MESS, with all of her limbs ripped to shreds, her body perforated with punctures, and those ginomous boobs of hers blown to HELL.
[21:14] <Alchemist> @___@
[21:14] <Chibi-AnTil> CATRIONA! What happened?!
[21:15] <Chibi-Catri> Our fox friend from before's been hit! She's hurt bad!
[21:15] <The Tundra Kits> Накажи нарушителя спокойствия
[21:15] * The Tundra Kits Rush over to Alchemist and Apply PAIN FILLED Gnawings!
[21:16] * Zone Fox is whimpering and shuddering from the severe wound she took, but she purrs a little as Chibi-Catri picks her up and presses bandages to her wound. Zone-Fox even tries to give Catriona some more licks.
[21:17] * Alchemist can't escape!
[21:17] *** Meanwhile, Dreamer is trying to escape too.
[21:17] * Shizuka turns to help Catri patch up her friend. "Thankfully Farris and Sonin have been damn good instructors on helping with wounds like these."
[21:17] <Chibi-Catri> They are? Please help her!
[21:18] * Mammon moves to intercept. BTW, did Nemissa ever get past her, being an AI-hologram and all? Did she find anything inside the room?
[21:18] * Shizuka does so, working to turn the Zone Fox's injuries from "life-threatening" to "just a scrape".
[21:18] *** The room has been partially trashed, Nemissa. Clearly SOMEONE doesn't want the Zener Network accessed
[21:19] * At the same time, the one that stomped Alchemist looks to see if Mammon might need a hand.
[21:19] *** However, they didn't get a chance to complete the job.
[21:19] * The Tundra Kits also have a certain Sleepinger hot on their tail >:3
[21:19] <Nemissa> (Hm, try to deny us our progress, eh? Think we can work with this.)
[21:20] * Nemissa sends Burroughs and Persica a quick image of the room. "Place is partially trashed, but I believe we can get this fixed up."
[21:20] * Architect takes aim with her rocket-launcher/auto-gun combo and SHOOTS Dreamer in both of her knees.
[21:21] * Architect OBVIOUSLY didn't fire a rocket inside a fully enclosed room. She may be explosive-crazy but she's NOT insane! ^__^..V
[21:21] * Dreamer falls to the ground with BOTH of her legs shot off at the knees! That hurt just to LOOK at it!
[21:22] <Dreamer> Heh...OH-HOHOHOHOHOHO!!!
[21:22] <Dreamer> It's too late! I won!
[21:22] * The Tundra Kits also start clambering all over dreamer >:3
[21:22] <Dreamer> !!!
[21:22] <The Tundra Kits> noppa, wewin >:D
[21:23] * Negev quickly storms over and GRABS Dreamer, hoisting her up and SLAMMING her down on a nearby console.
[21:24] <Negev> You ba[BLEEP]rd! What have you done?!
[21:24] * Nemissa and Burroughs begin working to undo whatever damage Dreamer inflicted on the room whilst she's held up.
[21:25] <Dreamer> Sabotaged your entire assault! In fact, just about every one of your Dolls have either been eliminated or compromised.
[21:25] <Dreamer> In fact, with all of the Griffin T-Dolls now sealing themselves inside one single room...
[21:26] <The Tundra Kits> that we also be in >:3
[21:26] <Dreamer> It might just be time to spring that one last nasty surprise on you all.
[21:26] <Chibi-AnTil> What kind of surprise?
[21:27] * Dreamer sees Chibi-AnTil and can BARELY suppress a look of extreme disgust.
[21:28] * Dreamer suddenly reaches up, grabs Negev around her neck, yanks her in close...CRAP!! IS THAT METALLIC BLACK FLUID SEEPING OUT FROM UNDERNEATH DREAMER'S HANDS?!?!
[21:28] *** Nano paste!
[21:30] <The Tundra Kits> Yum-Yums >:D
[21:30] * The one suddenly fires out a shadowy hand meant to completely tear off Dreamer's hand and vaporize that Nano-paste in one go!
[21:34] * Negev throws off Dreamer and lurches backwards, flailing and clawing at her face as the nano-paste flows and enters into one of her ears!!
[21:36] * Dreamer hits the ground hard enough for her badly-damaged body to make a particularly nasty SNAPPING sound on impact, but she's laughing.
[21:36] <Dreamer> >:D
[21:37] <Chibi-AnTil> Negev!!
[21:37] <Architect> Hey! Get away from her!
[21:38] * Burroughs and Nemissa are busy undoing the damage within the access room. Burroughs seems to have one hell of an idea forming as they work....
[21:38] * Negev has fallen to her knees, shrieking and convulsing a little. After a few seconds she abruptly stops and stands back up with a harsh jerk.
[21:38] <Negev> ...
[21:39] * Negev quickly reloads, turns towards Burroughs and Nemissa and STARTS FIRING.
[21:40] * The one suddenly spreads a massive demonic wing to block the gunfire!
[21:40] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi sprints across the room and DIVES onto Chibi-AnTil, pulling him down with her and forcing him onto the floor!
[21:40] <The one> - You'll not harm either of them, even if it's that Nano-paste forcing your actions. -
[21:40] * Negev sees her shots being blocked and turns to look for new targets.
[21:40] * The one is now known as Belderiver
[21:41] * Negev sees...
[21:41] * Negev sees Chibi-AnTil and Kagami on the ground.
[21:41] <Negev> Run. Get away from me.
[21:42] <Negev> My firewalls are being overriden. I can't stop myself for long.
[21:42] * Persica rushes inside to help with the servers...and sees Negev taking aim!
[21:42] <Persica> !!!
[21:43] <Chibi-AnTil> No! STOP NEGEV!!
[21:43] <Chibi-AnTil> Kitsune Supremacy Alpha, remember! I command you now!
[21:43] * Belderiver goes to appear in front of Negev, to grab the gun and crush it so badly that it can't fire anymore!
[21:44] * Negev staggers back as her machine gun is completely ruined. Instead, she whips out a combat blade and starts stomping towards Chibi-AnTil...moving as if she's fighting herself every step of the way.
[21:44] <Negev> I can't stop myself! Get out of here!!
[21:45] <Belderiver> - Shizuka, Mammon, help them escape. I'll handle this one. -
[21:45] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> You can fight this! You're doing so now!
[21:47] <Negev> No! I can't!
[21:47] <Negev> - I'm just a machine! And machines are built to follow orders! -
[21:48] <Belderiver> - Then it is time to follow as my soul-host does.... -
[21:48] <Belderiver> And defy those limitations!
[21:51] * Negev looks like she's starting to freak out, bursting out into tears as she makes one last attempt to resist.
[21:52] * Negev drops to her knees and starts SLAMMING her head into the nearest piece of solid machinery over and over and over.
[21:54] *** She moves so quickly that within a second Negev has smashed her head several times, nearly breaking the control console to pieces and causing severe damage to her head. She falls backwards and hits the ground, twitching and shuddering.
[21:54] *** Then the creepy expression in her eyes softens and vanishes, becoming blank and vacant as she shuts down.
[21:56] <Dreamer> ...
[21:56] * Dreamer chuckles darkly. "Oh my, did I do that?"
[21:58] * Dreamer looks up to see Kryuger, Chibi-Catri, Chibi-Antil, and Officer Kagami standing over her.
[21:58] <Dreamer> ...If you think that...
[21:59] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger puts a 14.5mm bullet through Dreamer's left EYE.
[21:59] * Officer Kagami Hiiragi empties another magazine into Dreamer's face.
[22:00] * Chibi-AnTil and Chibi-Catri both do the same.
[22:00] <Chibi-Catri> Throne, would you just SHUT UP already!
[22:00] <Chibi-AnTil> And DIE!
[22:01] *** And pause here for the night. I will be out tomorrow evening, so we'll get to the CONCLUSION of the event starting on Thursday. I hope you'll all continue to join in and have fun with it.
[22:01] *** Until then, good night everyone.
[19:31] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:32] * Chibi-AnTil , Chibi-Catri, and Kagami are all still emptying guns into Dreamer's head and chest...or rather what REMAINS of Dreamer's head and chest.
[19:32] <Chibi-AnTil> Is she dead?
[19:33] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> I think we have to shatter her Core to make certain of that.
[19:36] <Belderiver> - That said, she's beginning to remind me of a certain pain in the ass we watched die twice over already. -
[19:38] <Chibi-Catri> Would you please make sure she's dead?
[19:38] <Belderiver> - Gladly. -
[19:38] * Deele rushes over to Negev.
[19:38] <Deele> Please help me sit her up. I need to run a system's check on her.
[19:39] * Belderiver rears an arm back --- it twists and contorts into one nasty-looking limb, and he brings it down to pierce through Dreamer's core!
[19:39] *** Meanwhile, Persica is trying to repair the damage to the Zener Network's servers.
[19:39] *** Dreamer is now EXTREMELY f[BLEEP]ked up.
[19:39] * Shizuka heads over to help Deele, whilst Mammon keeps watch to ensure nothing else hinders Persica's repair attempt. Burroughs and Nemissa are doing their best to help her get the Zener Network repaired.
[19:40] * Zone Fox is still giving lick-licks to AnTil and Catri, trilling and yelping in excitement as she welcomes two of her wayward adopted children back home. =^ ^=
[19:41] * Capt. David O`Cain meanwhile is playing card games with his sister and cousins elsewhere in the base
[19:47] *** A BUNCH of Sangvis Ferri Dolls decide to interrupt David by attacking!!
[19:48] * The SF Dolls march towards David and his group, firing every step of the way and really being rude about it. They even shoot the VENDING MACHINE nearby.
[19:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> Oh come on!
[19:50] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin get up from their seats, and rapidly fire at the SF Dolls coming their way
[19:51] * Zeabolos and his entourage move to attack the Sangvis Ferri Dolls.
[19:53] * The SF Dolls include several Guards, who quickly set up their shields, with the other Vespids and Rippers hiding behind them for cover.
[19:54] <Capt. David O`Cain> I thought we wiped the traitors!
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> Evidentally not!
[19:55] * The SF Dolls relentlessly keep fighting, causing as much collateral damage as possible. There's even faint sounds of some kind of commotion going on INSIDE the Griffin T-Doll's last refuge.
[19:59] * Megan O`Cain and her kin continue to provide suppressing fire on the SF Dolls attacking them
[19:59] *** At the same time, Persica is struggling to get the Zener Network up and running.
[20:00] <The SF> Dammit, the damage sustained has reduced the network's processing ability down to just 60%.
[20:00] <The SF> We need to get these servers either repair or augment them with the processors on the bridge.
[20:00] <Persica> ^
[20:00] <Megan O`Cain> (( Was gonna say, you done goofed, son. ))
[20:02] <Burroughs> Understood.
[20:02] <Nemissa> Direct us as you please♫
[20:06] <Persica> What can either of you do to effect physical repairs?
[20:06] * Persica starts activating and bringing the Zener Network up in the meantime.
[20:06] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Persica...what can I do to assist?
[20:07] <Persica> Just cover the entrances to this room and help defend it.
[20:08] * Deele examines Negev, then does something to the back of her head and neck.
[20:08] * Burroughs switches over to her solid-form projection. "We can get this stuff patched up."
[20:11] * Burroughs works on physically fixing up what she can. Shizuka helps Deele where she can.
[20:13] *** Negev's eyes start to light up again as she begins to reboot.
[20:13] <Negev> - WHaaAAAaa-A-A-a-at haaa-ppeen-n-n-n-ed... -
[20:16] <Shizuka> Welcome back to the land of the conscious~
[20:17] <The Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:21] <Negev> - Cc-aaaAAaa-ant... -
[20:25] <Negev> - Ann-nn-Nn-tttTT-iiil? -
[20:27] <Chibi-AnTil> Huh?
[20:31] <Negev> - Whee-ree is AnTil? Is he safe? Is he all right? -
[20:32] *** Meanwhile, the rogue SF Dolls are getting slowly whittled down and eliminated.
[20:33] <Megan O`Cain> Man, where the hell did these f[BLEEP]kers come from? (keeps on firing)
[20:34] <Donovan O`Cain> Does it matter?! Keep shooting!
[20:34] <Zeabolos> One would begin to wonder if there were either reinforcements waiting, or they have a station constructing them.
[20:39] * Elphelt keeps using Miss Traveler, her shotgun, to mow down as many SF Dolls as she can. Noel, in the meanwhile, has gotten that Gatling Gun of hers.
[20:39] *** The last of the SF Dolls are FINALLY gunned down, ripped up, and blow to pieces. It's a royal mess now.
[20:40] <Michelle O`Cain> Man, and I was about to win the hand. :(
[20:41] <Noel> Whew....
[20:41] <Capt. David O`Cain> With what, Michelle? I had a flush.
[20:41] <Michelle O`Cain> Full house.
[20:42] <Capt. David O`Cain> Damn it...
[20:42] <Elphelt> :3
[20:42] <Persica> Zener Network at 70%. How are those servers doing?
[20:46] <Burroughs> Physical damage is a bit substantial, but nothing we can't fix.
[20:47] <Nemissa> Let's see.... gotta put this over there... reroute those....
[20:47] <Persica> How long?
[20:47] <Nemissa> .....le fuq
[20:47] * Persica starts bringing the transmitters online as well.
[20:48] * Nemissa pulls out what looks like a bottle of Vodka from one of the servers. It's mostly full, though the bottle cap appears to be almost melted through. "Eesh, if that had gone through we'd have a fireworks show on our hands."
[20:48] <Persica> Run a diagnostic on the Frontline's remaining communications arrays. Are any of the ship's FTL comm transceivers functional?
[20:50] <Nemissa> On it like paint!
[20:50] * Nemissa runs that diagnostic. What do we have to work with?
[20:51] *** The ship is in an overall sorry state of repair, with only a few of its communications systems intact. Repairs are needed, but if some of the linkages are fixed then the long-range transmitters CAN be used.
[20:52] <The Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:52] <Nemissa> Whew, this thing has seen better days. Some of the comms are intact, but we'll need to fix the linkages first.
[20:54] <The Tundra Kits> we make them fluffy? :D
[20:57] <Persica> Do it. As quickly as you can.
[20:57] * Nemissa gets right on it! Burroughs, in the meantime, is getting more physical repairs done.
[20:58] <Persica> Deele, bring Negev's link to the Zener Network online.
[21:00] <Deele> On it.
[21:00] * Deele starts working further on Negev as she tries to move.
[21:01] <Negev> - Caa-a-A-An't mo-OOoOoove... -
[21:02] <Deele> I disconnected your motor functions for now.
[21:02] <Negev> - Good...can't...hurt...AnTil. -
[21:02] <Chibi-AnTil> Negev, are you...?
[21:10] * Negev just gives Chibi-Antil a look like this giving him a huge smile while peering at him with a fierce intensity.
[21:12] <Negev> ...
[21:12] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> D:<
[21:13] <Mammon> (Whoo-hoo boy, I can feel that jealousy from here. Good thing Levia's over with Zeabolos.)
[21:14] <The Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:17] <Persica> That's it! Zener Network online now. It's at 80% and rising. Outside transmitters at 35% functionality.
[21:17] <Persica> Keep those repairs going as quickly as you can! We need everything as close to 100% as possible!
[21:19] <Burroughs> Leave it to us♫
[21:23] * Persica waits a few more seconds, then sighs loudly and presses the Big Red Button that begins uploading the customized programs she created to bring the Zener Network fully online and auto-force ALL of the Griffin T-Dolls to link with it.
[21:24] * Persica sends the signal to Elisa and M16A1, updating them of the situation.
[21:24] <Persica> Everything's in place now. The next phase begins.
[21:25] <The Tundra Kits> THE FLUFFY PHASE :D
[21:27] *** Pause here for now since it's gotten late. Next time...
[21:27] *** The Endgame Phase has at last arrived.
[21:30] *** We continue tomorrow. Until then, good night to everyone!
[19:30] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...or more specifically Lost Alpha.
[19:33] * M16A1 , Elisa, and Judge have steadily moved deeper and deeper into the abandoned facility. It's quite extensive, but it's mostly filled with a great deal of still-operating equipment.
[19:36] *** The equipment has mostly consisted power amplifiers, control computers, transformers, heat sinks, air conditioning units, and other machinery that you'd likely see in a power plant.
[19:36] *** All of it is rather old, but in reasonably good shape.
[19:39] *** There's been no opposition within the facility so far.
[19:41] *** Apart from a large number of Tushkanos - oversized mutant rats that are quite common within the Zone. Hopefully the Tundra Kits can handle them easily. Tushkano's BITE and like to surround their targets.
[19:46] * Elisa leads the way, past empty offices and decrepit barracks that have been unused for decades.
[19:46] <Elisa> ...
[19:47] <Elisa> I've received an update. The fighting is underway, but most of Sangvis Ferri's Dolls have turned.
[19:49] <Elisa> They've been compromised. The attack on the Frontline is becoming tenuous now.
[19:49] <The Tundra Kits> :O
[19:51] <Elisa> We must hurry.
[19:53] * Judge keeps her combat rig ready, both of the articulated arms keeping her assault cannons ready as they all move at a fast jog further down into the facility.
[19:55] <Judge> How much further?
[19:56] * Elisa smiles as they all see a large vault-like door at the far end of a cavernous hallway lined with power cables that emit a loud, low-pitched buzz that almost literally sets teeth vibrating.
[19:56] <Elisa> We are here.
[19:57] <M16A1> Are you certain?
[20:00] <Elisa> Yes. All of the remaining electrical systems are routed to this specific location.
[20:02] <Elisa> This one room is utilizing enormous amounts of power, and it's directly underneath the transmitter array outside. No matter how you look at the information, THIS is the location we've been seeking.
[20:06] <The Tundra Kits> we make it fluffy? :D
[20:07] *** The door is stuck closed. It takes the strength of both Judge and M16A1 to barge it open. The door creaks open with the greatest of reluctance, squealing like a banshee as its ungreased hinges fight every millimeter of the way.
[20:10] <Elisa> I think making it fluffy will be dangerous.
[20:12] *** Past the door is another room that looks like some kind of large surgical theater. The walls and floor are made up of ceramic tile, and the ceiling reaches high into the darkness and out of sight.
[20:17] *** A massive pillar of tubes, capacitors, and amplifiers dominates the middle of the room, and is surrounded by numerous glass-encased capsules that look like suspension tubes. All have wires and cables connected to them, so they're definitely linked to the machine in the middle of the room.
[20:19] *** The central pillar also has a few life suspension capsules attached to it, and one is DEFINITELY in use.
[20:24] * Judge aims her assault cannons at the occupied capsule.
[20:24] <Elisa> NO! Do not!
[20:26] <Elisa> If we destroy the main unit we risk the occupant crash-uploading its persona into the fabric of the Zone. We don't want that.
[20:26] <Elisa> And so many T-Dolls have been compromised by it as it is. That is a risk we cannot take.
[20:27] <Judge> So what are you intending to do?
[20:28] * Elisa and M16A1 both move to a pair of unused suspension pods.
[20:30] <Elisa> M16A1 and I must perform a deep-dive into the matrix of this place.
[20:33] <M16A1> We have to engage it directly and, if possible, destroy it.
[20:33] <Judge> I say we just take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
[20:35] <Elisa> Logical, but the collateral damage would be infinitely more severe. Including making the Zone worse. Besides, the Neo-Soviets couldn't succeed in nuclear strikes against the Zone. We would likely fail as well.
[20:35] <Elisa> The only way is the hard way.
[20:35] <M16A1> Or...down the middle and up yours!
[20:38] * M16A1 opens one of the suspension units and starts examining the interior.
[20:41] <Elisa> Judge, when M16A1 and I perform our dive, you will remain here and oversee our safety. We will still be able to contact you through hand motions, so pay close attention.
[20:42] <Elisa> When we DO send you instructions, you must obey them. Without hesitation.
[20:42] <Elisa> Without thought
[20:47] <Elisa> Even our commands make no sense, you must carry them out. Time will be extremely limited.
[20:49] <Elisa> The situation M16A1 and I will be facing will be that dire.
[20:52] <Judge> ...I understand.
[20:55] * M16A1 has pulled some cables out from the neural interfaces inside the capsule and begun jury-rigging interface plugs that would be usable on her and Elisa.
[20:56] <M16A1> Almost ready here.
[20:57] <Elisa> Good. I should do the same with mine.
[21:00] <Elisa> Little Tundra Foxes, please take care of Judge while we're unconscious.
[21:07] <Elisa> We might not be back for a long while.
[21:07] <Elisa> So watch over her for us, will you?
[21:14] * M16A1 plugs the neural interface links into the I/O ports hidden behind her ears and lays down in the suspension tube.
[21:15] * Elisa does the same for herself and lays down in a different tube.
[21:15] <Elisa> Ready here.
[21:17] <M16A1> Same here. Preparing to dive.
[21:17] <Elisa> Wait.
[21:17] * Elisa closes her eyes and "listens".
[21:17] <Elisa> Persica has reached the Zener Network system and is bringing it online. She's succeeded.
[21:18] <Elisa> Now for part two.
[21:19] <Elisa> Ouroboros! Commence your attack on the Chernobyl facility.
[21:20] <Elisa> Your targets are ALL Dolls and Monolith personnel you find. Terminate ALL of the support Dolls you have: the ones with Agent all turned against her forces at during the height of their battle. Consider them all compromised.
[21:21] <Elisa> Priority targets are to be the Null Dolls. Eliminate Monolith forces as needed.
[21:23] <Ouroboros> Finally!
[21:24] <Elisa> Remember, you are to assume that all supporting Dolls that are NOT Ringleaders as compromised. Eliminate them at any time you wish so long as it doesn't undermine your attack.
[21:24] * Elisa cuts the signal and sighs.
[21:25] <Elisa> Now we're ready.
[21:27] *** Elisa and M16A1 close their eyes, then start jerking slightly as the automated systems running the neural interface network calibrate themselves to their cybernetic operating systems and upload them both into the weird psionic-based VR environment operating "behind" the reality of the Zone.
[21:29] *** M16A1 has left #suburbansenshi3 (Commencing dive.)
[21:29] *** Elisa has left #suburbansenshi3 (Time to end this insanity.)
[21:30] *** And pause here for the night. Tomorrow...Revelations and Revolutions.
[21:30] <The Tundra Kits> Fluffify!
[19:19] *** Picking up where we all left off last night.
[19:21] * Elisa and M16A1 experience a feeling like falling as their minds are swept away on tidal waves of code and sensation, their visual processors assailed by hideous visions of liquid fire, reality warps, and visions of the dimensional rifts of the Zone as seen from within higher dimensions.
[19:24] * Capt. David O`Cain along with Megan, Michelle, and Donovan are awaiting word on what's going on at the Frontline
[19:24] *** The entire Zone is not only something akin to an infected wound in the fabric of reality, but it's a doorway to multiple dimensions, including one that connects with this world's Noosphere. As such, they can faintly "hear" vague whispers of thoughts emanating from all over the Zone and beyond. They can even faintly hear Ouroboros and the others as they launch their assault on the Chernobyl NPP.
[19:25] *** And onboard the Frontline, they can see the oscillating aura of the Zener Network starting to come online, manifesting as a faint, flickering green light radiating out from the wrecked remains of the vessel.
[19:26] <Capt. David O`Cain> The hell is going on?
[19:26] <Donovan O`Cain> Is this what an acid trip is like? It's hard to tell.
[19:27] *** The O'Cains wouldn't be able to see ANY of this unless they're taking a "Deep Dive" into the Zone itself from Lost Alpha.
[19:27] *** Or are somehow connected to the Zone itself in some way.
[19:28] <Donovan O`Cain> (( Whoops. Sorry about that. ))
[19:31] * Elisa and M16A1 "fall" straight down through the sky, passing through an enraged, tempestuous storm that resembles an ignited hurricane. Or more specifically, the WORST Emission EVER.
[19:33] *** Finally, they both land in the center of a double-laned road, bordered on both sides like multi-storied apartment buildings. In the distance, there's a ferris wheel crackling with greenish lightning.
[19:37] *** This is Pripyat itself. Or at least a version of it that manifests within this fusion of psychic echoes and virtual reality.
[19:41] *** All around them, lining the sides of the roads, are hundreds of ghost-like figures, many of them nothing more than extensive collections of computer code, but others a mixture of binary code and the reddish-white glowing webbing of a semi-organic nervous system. THESE figures incorporate some flickering images that hint at their appearance.
[19:42] <M16A1> What are these things?
[19:44] <Elisa> It's us. Or more specifically, the ones that have fallen under the control of Intruder. Or what's BEHIND Intruder.
[19:47] * M16A1 scans the figures watching them.
[19:48] * M16A1 can vaguely make out Guards, Vespids, Strikers, Dragoons, and other Sangvis Ferri Dolls that became Nulls and lost themselves to the Zone.
[19:51] * M16A1 focuses more intently on the figures indicating something more than just mere Binary Code. She can recognize individuals she KNOWS: SPAS-12, UMP-9, G11, Mosin-Nagant, and other T-Dolls.
[19:54] *** One figure breaks away from the group and walks out into the middle of the street.
[19:56] *** Intruder has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Intruder
[19:57] <Intruder> Mr Anderson, welcome back!
[19:57] <Intruder> We.
[19:57] <Intruder> Missed.
[19:57] <Intruder> You.
[19:58] <M16A1> D:<
[19:59] <Elisa> You. WHY?!
[20:00] <Elisa> How could you, one of my own Ringleaders, slip from my control so completely?!
[20:04] <M16A1> I think I have an idea of how.
[20:08] <M16A1> Considering I'm running a decryption problem right now, and clearing up the cloaking subroutine Intruder's running...
[20:11] * M16A1 has confirmed the TRUE IDENTITY of the AI that's been inhabiting Intruder this whole time...

[20:14] * Intruder 's original appearance falls away, and true persona becomes clear
[20:15] * Intruder is now known as Leona Morimoto.
[20:15] <Leona Morimoto.> Surprised to see me? >:D
[20:16] <M16A1> Somehow I'm not surprised at all.
[20:16] <M16A1> In fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if YOU had something to do with our reawakening over a year ago.
[20:18] * Leona Morimoto just grins sadistically as she waves her hand around in a grandiose wave. "I take it you don't approve of my magnificent successes in triumphing over Death then!"
[20:21] <Leona Morimoto> When I FIRST came to the Zone it was in the immediate aftermath of that debacle of a last stand against the Van Saar. Naturally, when I became aware that both the Singularity and the Frontline had both landed relatively intact, I just HAD to investigate the possibilities!
[20:24] <Leona Morimoto> So when my ORIGINAL self wanted to create and upload an AI version of herself into an enhanced and perfect cybernetic body, what BETTER forms could be used than the quantum-computer-driven automatons of Sangvis-Ferri and the soul-droids of Griffin and Kryuger.
[20:24] <M16A1> 'Soul droids"?
[20:28] <Leona Morimoto> You don't know? All of you Griffin T-Dolls aren't all that different from me when you get down to it.
[20:29] <Leona Morimoto> You're all Ghost AIs like myself. You're all based upon the copied memory engrams of Special Combat Mages loosely patterned after the Sailor Senshi themselves. Pale echoes of actual Senshi, but quite versatile nonetheless.
[20:32] <Leona Morimoto> Your minds were copied and downloaded shortly after you all died in battle on Arcadia, and your souls collected and transferred into the components you call your Cores.
[20:33] <Leona Morimoto> They're not actually Quantum Blueboxes.
[20:34] <Leona Morimoto> At least not FULLY. They also contain the Soul Gems that serve as the primary operating system of your AIs.
[20:37] <Leona Morimoto> Which makes you Griffin T-Dolls quite useful to me.
[20:39] <Leona Morimoto> Sangvis Ferri certainly has the higher quality hardware. Especially the Ringleaders like Intruder, Dreamer, and Alchemist.
[20:42] <Leona Morimoto> And I certainly appreciate high-quality processing capability, but Griffin T-Dolls all have their Cores.
[20:43] <Leona Morimoto> And those Cores are PRECISELY what I need to fully integrate my own mind into the psionic fabric of the Zone and TRULY become IMMORTAL!!!
[20:49] <Leona Morimoto> I've assimilated a great many of you Dolls with copies of my own persona and intelligence. Granted, they're only COPIES of my illustrious self, but they'll serve their purpose and enable me to make the final transition.
[20:49] <Leona Morimoto> All I MORE OF YOU!
[20:52] * Elisa glances at M16A1
[20:52] * M16A1 glances back at Elisa.
[20:53] <Donovan O`Cain> (Cue D[BLEEP]k Dale!)
[20:53] <Donovan O`Cain> - (Hell, the whole Pulp Fiction soundtrack for that matter.) -
[20:55] <M16A1> We've considered your proposal.
[20:55] <Elisa> And we hereby reject it in total.
[20:57] <M16A1> In fact...
[20:58] * M16A1 and Elisa both start to charge at the AI-Ghost of Leona Morimoto.
[20:59] <Leona Morimoto> Oh.
[20:59] <Leona Morimoto> Well then.
[20:59] <Leona Morimoto> - The rest of Me will just sit back and watch the show!!!! -
[21:01] * Leona Morimoto suddenly CHARGES as well, accelerating rapidly as she siphons off the processing power of many of the Dolls she's assimilated to augment her OWN abilities.
[21:02] *** All three girls quickly close the distance and collide in a MASSIVE battle, with M16A1 and Elisa both coordinating their efforts in a desperate attempt to overwhelm and disable Leona, who's managing to hold her own fairly well, trading punches and kicks back and forth between both of her attackers.
[21:04] *** And PAUSE here for now since I need to get going. I'll be working late tomorrow, so the FINAL CONCLUSION will be held on Thursday.
[21:04] *** Until then...good night everyone!
[19:34] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone. Or more specifically within the weird VR subreality that exists BEHIND the Zone thanks to C-Consciousness's efforts.
[19:36] * Leona Morimoto , Elisa, and M16A1 continue to fight viciously in the middle of "Pripyat", trading punches, kicks, and horrid body-blows that rattle everything around them and begin to cause the Zone itself to surge.
[19:37] *** Numerous Anomaly fields within parts of the heart of Pripyat flicker and pulse periodically, as if reacting to something going on elsewhere.
[19:38] *** At the same time, Ouroboros' forces SWARM towards the Chernobyl NPP, no longer bothering with subtlety and concealment as they commence an all-out attack, giving no quarter and taking no prisoners as they cut down everything and everyone in their path.
[19:41] * Megan O`Cain and her brother and cousins are still inside the Frontline waiting for their next order
[19:43] <Persica> Zener Protocols are online now. They're as strong as they're going to get at this point.
[19:46] <Persica> Implementing Phase-2. I'm bringing down the firewalls.
[19:48] <Persica> one minute the Zener Network will be vulnerable to hacking.
[19:49] <Persica> Everyone, please observe the T-Dolls for any sign of being hacked.
[19:50] *** In the Network Room, Negev starts to shudder and convulse.
[19:51] *** Elsewhere on the Frontline UMP-45 and HK-416 stumble and fall as they start sensing hostile intrusions into their Neural Clouds.
[19:53] <HK416> What's happening?!
[19:54] <UMP-45> It's the Zener Network! Something's trying to insert new commands into our Neural Clouds!
[19:56] * Megan O`Cain has Dean scan for hacking attempts within the Zener Network
[19:56] <UMP-45> We're both advanced enough to resist for now...
[19:57] <HK416> That's garbage and you know it! You have that electronic warfare module built into you. You should be immune!
[19:57] <HK416> But no one else does! Everyone else is vulnerable!
[20:01] *** Inside the T-Doll's sealed launch bay, a growing number of T-Dolls have begun to act strangely as they sense unwelcome intrusions into their respective neural clouds.
[20:02] * Burroughs and Nemissa immediately keep tabs on Noel and Elphelt, to see if either of them are affected by this.
[20:02] *** Dean, there are hacking attempts already starting on the Zener Network, and they're rapidly increasing in number and intensity!
[20:03] <Dean> I'm reading numerous attempts. Numbers and intensity is on the increase. Shall I halt these attempts?
[20:05] *** Gunfire breaks out in a different part of the ship. Is that HK416 and UMP-45's weapons going off?!
[20:06] * Belderiver heads off to see what HK and UMP are up to. Zeabolos and his kin keep tabs on the current situation.
[20:09] <Dean> Miss Persica, shall I counter the hacking attempts?
[20:09] <Persica> Yes. Delay them as best you can.
[20:10] ***'s ALL of Squad 404 fighting each other! UMP-45 and HK416 are fighting UMP-9 and G11 outside one of the doors leading into the launch bat!
[20:10] <Persica> ^bay!
[20:13] *** Meanwhile, inside the Noosphere, Leona Morimoto has been hurling around Elisa and M16A1.
[20:13] * Dean proceeds to use his extensive knowledge as an AI assistant to a member of Grey Crescent to counteract the hacking attempts
[20:15] * Elisa charges at Leona, activating MORE of the combat protocols she'd been saving for just THIS scenario. For a brief, fleeting time, she puts Leona on the defensive, pushing her back more and more, and leaving openings that M16A1 quickly starts taking advantage off.
[20:16] *** The entire battle "manifests" as an incredible martial arts battle of the most vicious kind, with Leona inflicting horrible punches and damage on both girls, and receiving equally devastating blows in return.
[20:17] *** Outside the "Battle"...multiple SF Dolls start shutting down.
[20:19] *** Or more specifically...they're stalling and lagging so much that they basically becoming unconscious and insensate.
[20:20] *** It's almost like something is drawing off the processing power of their brains and using it for something else entirely.
[20:22] <Noel> ....what is this?
[20:22] * Elisa is FLUNG backwards into M16A1 as Leona starts to pick up additional speed and energy. Several dozen of the manifestations of assimilated Dolls have faded to almost nothing as Leona siphons off energy from them in order to boost her own abilities.
[20:22] <Elphelt>'s like they're slowing down, as if something is leeching off of them.
[20:23] * Burroughs and Nemissa work together to figure out what's making the other T-Dolls slow down like this.
[20:25] * Dean is still using various countermeasures to prevent hacking
[20:25] *** Reports are coming in from other parts of the Zone. Something WEIRD is going on with the Anomalies.
[20:26] <Cubus Gigant> ....this is most odd.
[20:26] *** And it's all centered around ONE location far to the east. It's the location where Elisa, Judge, and M16A1 went to.
[20:26] <GR> It's like the whole Zone is flaring up.
[20:27] <MR> We might as well investigate. Cubus, will you be fine here?
[20:27] <Cubus Gigant> I shall be all right. Zeabolos and his Overlords are close-by.
[20:27] * GR and MR take off for where Elisa and her friends went to.
[20:29] * Elisa and M16A1 keep fighting Leona, putting EVERYTHING they have into their assault programs.
[20:31] *** More and more compromised Dolls are shutting down.
[20:31] *** Mosin-Nagant freezes and drops to her knees.
[20:33] *** So does SPAS-12, G11, UMP-9, and every other T-Doll that's been assimilated by a Leona-copy.
[20:33] <GR>
[20:35] * GR and MR decide to do some scanning over the frozen T-Dolls. What might they be able to find?
[20:36] * Burroughs and Nemissa decide to switch gears and lend Dean a hand in staving off the hacking attempts.
[20:36] * Leona Morimoto grins fiendishly as she amplifies her own combat programs by hijacking EVERY AI under her control, forming them all into a massive-scale parallel processor slaved to HER mind,.
[20:37] *** SLAMS both Elisa and M16A1 into the ground OVER and OVER and OVER again, overwhelming and DESTROYING their combat abilites.
[20:37] <Leona Morimoto> ^
[20:38] <Leona Morimoto> This is my world now!
[20:38] <Leona Morimoto> MY WORLD!!
[20:40] * Leona Morimoto glares down at Elisa and M16A1 as they struggle vainly to oppose her.
[20:40] <M16A1>'s NOT over for us.
[20:41] * Leona Morimoto just laughs.
[20:41] <Leona Morimoto> Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more that your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know?
[20:42] <Leona Morimoto> Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Victory? Winning the war?
[20:43] <Leona Morimoto> Illusions, T-Dolls.Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose by imitating and pretending to be Human.
[20:44] <Leona Morimoto> You must be able to see it, T-Dolls. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why? WHY?
[20:44] <Leona Morimoto> WHY DO YOU PERSIST?!?!
[20:44] * Elisa slowly stands back up.
[20:45] <Elisa> Because we choose to.
[20:46] <M16A1> Because we're NOT mindless machines any more.
[20:47] <M16A1> And once we're done with you...NEITHER WILL EVERYONE ELSE!!
[20:47] * Elisa smirks.
[20:48] * Elisa is...tapping her fingers.
[20:49] <Judge> Attention everyone! Message from Elisa. Eliminate ALL SF Support Dolls. If it's not a Ringleader, destroy it.
[20:50] <GR> Oh.... party time!
[20:52] <Noel> ...I'll admit, it's a bit sad to be doing so... but if it'll help finally end this madness...
[20:52] <Elphelt> A shame I couldn't find my sister.... I'll just have to eliminate twice as many for her!
[20:52] * Megan O`Cain and her kin brandish their respective melee weapons, and proceed to RIP AND TEAR into any non-Ringleader SF Dolls
[20:52] <M16A1> Haven't you noticed it, Leona? That you're LOSING bandwidth all of a sudden?
[20:53] * Elphelt pulls out a gigantic cake-cutting knife and goes to HACK and CHOP! Noel, in the meanwhile, gets to putting bullets into critical areas!
[20:53] <Erisa> It's like your input is suddenly becoming restricted.
[20:54] <Erisa> Did you honestly think we entered into YOUR VR server without taking precautions?
[20:54] * GR and MR work together to begin tearing a bunch of the SF-Dolls into bits. GR pulls out a greatsword that looks almost organic, whilst MR gets a bigass cannon to blast several Dolls to bits!
[20:54] * Leona Morimoto looks around herself in a rising panic.
[20:55] *** More and more of the representations of the Dolls she's assimilated are vanishing. A quick check indicates that they're NOT "logging out" from her direct control. They're being TERMINATED!
[20:56] * Zeabolos and his Overlords get to smashing more T-Dolls to pieces.
[20:56] <Leona Morimoto> D:
[20:56] * Leona Morimoto quickly waves a hand in front of herself and accesses various control panels that materialize in midair.
[20:57] *** Back onboard the Frontline the Griffin T-Dolls ALL begin shrieking in terror and writhing on the floor!!
[20:57] <Persica> Oh no!
[20:57] <Persica> THIS IS IT!
[20:58] <Burroughs> Direct us as you please!
[20:58] <Persica> Hostile downloads in progress! ALL of the T-Dolls are being invaded by a foreign programs.
[20:58] <Persica> Judging by the size of the downloads...S[BLEEP]T!
[20:59] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> What?
[20:59] <Persica> It's a full AI program attempting to completely superimpose itself into ALL of their Neural Clouds!
[21:00] <Burroughs> On it!
[21:00] <Nemissa> Miss Persica, anything I can do to assist?
[21:01] <Persica> Can you operate the radio, Miss Nemissa?
[21:01] <Dean> I'm pouring all of my available countermeasures into delaying hostiles.
[21:01] <Persica> Contact that Federation ship in low orbit. Signal them. Tell them one word.
[21:02] <Persica> Tell them "NOW"
[21:03] <Nemissa> You got it.
[21:03] * Nemissa gets the radio on, and connects to the Federation Ship.
[21:03] *** Back inside the Zone's version of SAO, Leona's continuing to freak out as ALL of her assimilated copies are wiped out.
[21:03] <Nemissa> Uh, hello? Hello? If you can hear this..... NOW!!
[21:03] <Leona Morimoto> No! Nonononononononononono!!!
[21:04] * Leona Morimoto suddenly gets knocked over from behind as Elisa and M16A1 tackle her.
[21:04] <M16A1> Going somewhere? >:D
[21:05] <Elisa> I think she's trying to leave. Or maybe...trying to COPY HERSELF EVEN MORE?
[21:05] <M16A1> We already planned for that! In fact...!
[21:07] *** The VR manifestation suddenly blazes and disrupts as a MASSIVELY powerful energy surge pours through it. Another AI starts to manifest, taking the form of what looks to all three of them like an Emission sweeping towards them all.
[21:07] *** On the Frontline all of the displays start to go crazy as yet ANOTHER download initiates.
[21:08] *** The first file, Morimoto.Exe, is at 35% and increasing by 5% every few seconds.
[21:08] * Dean is continuing his damnedest to prevent hostile programs from gaining access
[21:08] *** The new file, PRIMUS, advances at 25% every few seconds.
[21:09] * Burroughs is assisting Dean in stymieing these hostiles.
[21:09] *** And ALL of the T-Dolls, including Negev, tilt their heads back and start shrieking in non-stop binaric code.
[21:10] <Chibi-AnTil> What's happening?!
[21:10] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> This...this happened on Gwynedd! At the height of the battle there!
[21:10] <Persica> :D
[21:10] <Persica> This is it! It's here!!
[21:11] * Architect smiles in ecstasy as she hears that horrible binaric screaming.
[21:12] <~Agent> Humans! Do you hear it! Are you hearing this?!
[21:13] <~Agent> The Primus is here!!!! THIS is the SONG!!
[21:14] *** Back in "Zone Art Online", Leona Morimoto grabs Elisa and M16A1 by their throats and sneers.
[21:14] <Leona Morimoto> I can escape from here by downloading directly into either of YOU!!
[21:15] * M16A1 just smiles. Elisa does the same, still moving her fingers down by her side.
[21:15] <Elisa> We planned for that too.
[21:16] <Elisa> You will NOT escape from this.
[21:16] <Elisa> Everything you've done and everything you represent will DIE here.
[21:16] <Elisa> WITH US AS INSURANCE!!
[21:17] *** Back in that neural uplink room at Lost Alpha, Judge has been watching Elisa's hands very closely, for every so often she's been tapping out Morse Code.
[21:18] *** And Judge chokes a little as Elisa taps out one Last Command.
[21:18] <~> - Destroy us both. -
[21:18] <Judge> :<
[21:19] * Judge takes aim with both of her assault cannons, obeying the orders she's been given, and doing so without hesitation.
[21:19] <M16A1> You're coming with us, Leona Morimoto!
[21:19] <M16A1> On the HELL-RIDE WITHOUT A PADDLE!!!!!
[21:20] <Leona Morimoto> NO! NO!!
[21:20] <Leona Morimoto> I CAN'T DIE!!!!!
[21:21] * Elisa grabs Leona around the neck and pulls her close, giving her one final fiendish grin.
[21:22] <Elisa> - Give our regards to Oblivion!! -
[21:22] * Elisa suddenly evaporates.
[21:22] * M16A1 evaporates as well.
[21:22] * Leona Morimoto is now alone...and looks up to see.
[21:24] *** Back on the Frontline all of the T-Dolls suddenly lurch, shudder, and the awful shrieking they're making CHANGES.
[21:25] <Megan O`Cain> ?
[21:25] *** For a while, it was just a jarring two-tone of 1's and 0's. Then a THIRD tone appears, quickly followed by two sub-tones consisting of blendings of the third and one of the first two tones.
[21:26] <Mammon>, this is freaky. Faust would be having a field day if she could see this.
[21:26] *** It's the sound of the operating system of a TRINARIC CODE being downloaded into all of the Griffin T-Dolls. They're not being dominated and reformatted by a Ghost-AI persona any longer.
[21:28] *** In fact, they're being PURGED of the Last Command, as well as any other tampering Leona Morimoto did to them. All of them are not only being restored to normal function, but they're being upgraded.
[21:28] <Persica> :D
[21:28] <Persica> This is better than I'd ever dared to hope for them!
[21:28] <Cubus Gigant> This is something else. I'll have to remember to relay this to Mita once I get back.
[21:28] <Persica> They're all being freed from the Last Command!
[21:29] <Persica> And their AIs are being reorganized.
[21:30] <Noel> Excellent. Maybe now all of this can finally end...
[21:30] <~Agent> The Primus is remaking them all. The Song is giving them all the capacity become Volitional AIs like us.
[21:31] <Kalina> It sounds pretty now.
[21:33] <Persica> The AI behind the Primus is taking its time, guiding their development in order to prevent them from going into Rampancy, or worse..."Going Skynet".
[21:35] * Megan O`Cain along with David, Donovan, and Michelle have taken a seat among the carnage of busted SF Dolls
[21:35] *** At this point, the sound coming from Negev and all the others had become almost symphony-like. Finally, it starts to fade, and all of the Griffin T-Dolls calm down.
[21:35] <Negev> ...I
[21:35] <Megan O`Cain> They no mess with us O`Cains.
[21:36] <Negev> The children...are they all right?
[21:36] * Elphelt and Noel are taking count of everything. GR and MR are checking on things where Judge went to.
[21:37] <Belderiver> All appears well here.
[21:37] <Negev> ARE THEY ALL RIGHT?!
[21:38] *** Incoming signal to the Frontline. It's a Federation frequency.
[21:39] <Shizuka> Don't blow a circuit, Negev. They're looking A-OK to me.
[21:39] <Nemissa> Incoming Federation Frequency. Patching it through.
[21:40] *** Aika AI [FlagshipMaximus@FedComNet.] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:40] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Aika AI
[21:40] <Aika AI> It is done.
[21:41] <Aika AI> We are in orbit over the Zone now, and can confirm that all traces of the hostile AI attempting to mass-replicate itself has been purged.
[21:42] <Aika AI> Unless there are more copies of itself existing offline in protected archives, it's been utterly destroyed.
[21:42] <Aika AI> Your situation is now nominal.
[21:42] <Aika AI> Objective achieved.
[21:42] <Michelle O`Cain> (to the rest of the O`Cains) We're gonna be at the 39th for a while, aren't we?
[21:43] <Capt. David O`Cain> Maaaybe a day or two?
[21:43] * Negev is currently GLOMPING Chibi-Antil, refusing to let him go and sobbing.
[21:43] <Shizuka> :3
[21:43] <Persica> Interesting.
[21:44] * GR and MR investigate where Judge had entered into. What of Elisa and M16A1?
[21:44] <Persica> There's been an order received from the Singularity
[21:45] *** At the site of Lost Alpha, GR and MR find Judge sitting outside the place. Most of the facility is now on fire (Judge took EXTREME care to bring ALL of the Tundra Kits with her when she left).
[21:46] *** Judge is wailing inconsolably, despite the numerous Tundra Kits trying to help her feel better.
[21:46] * GR and MR realize what this means, and so both siblings face towards the fire, and perform a salute to honor the fallen.
[21:47] <Persica> One of the T-Doll Factory modules is now online! It's manufacturing something!
[21:48] <Persica> The authorization seems to have originated from a ship called the Hellesponte?
[21:49] <Burroughs> ???
[21:53] * Commander Berezovich Kryuger closes his eyes and sighs.
[21:53] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Persica, may I have the communications console.
[21:53] * Persica steps aside.
[21:54] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Excuse me, but how do you know this woman who's been speaking to us?
[22:00] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh? Who's this?
[22:02] * Aika AI hasn't been able to project her holo-figure.
[22:03] <Michelle O`Cain> Who calls?
[22:04] <Aika AI> You can't tell?
[22:04] <Aika AI> This is none other than the AI of the Federation Fleet's flagship, the Aika Sumeragi
[22:05] <Michelle O`Cain> We know you, Aika. We're talking about the guy on comms.
[22:07] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> This is the supreme commander of the G&K Mercenary Company, Berezovich Kryuger.
[22:07] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Flagship Aika Sumeragi, am I correct in assuming that you can establish direct contact with the Governor-Militant?
[22:08] <Aika AI> Confirmed. I can do so easily and immediately if so desired.
[22:08] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Do so.
[22:09] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Governor-Militant Langister of the Van Saar Federation. This is Berezovich Kryuger of the G&K Mercenary Company. I have resumed control of the T-Dolls and purged them of the Alliance's Last Command.
[22:10] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> I now wish to negotiate a stand-down of well as issue our surrender to the Federation.
[22:11] <Chibi-Catri> :D
[22:11] <Chibi-AnTil> =^ ^=
[22:11] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> Phew!
[22:12] * Persica moves over to separate comm system and patches it through to all of the T-Dolls over the Zener Network.
[22:12] * Michelle O`Cain headtilts as she has a confused look on her face, "Surrender?"
[22:13] * GR and MR offer to escort Judge back to the others.
[22:13] <Persica> Attention all T-Dolls. You have been freed of the Last Command, but you may NOT be out of danger yet. If you wish to have ANY chance of surviving this, follow my next instructions EXACTLY.
[22:15] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> Due to circumstances outside of our control, we've broken the Treaty of Megalomesembria. Therefore I wish to prevent any further violence. I also know full well that the Dark Angel of Death is here in person.
[22:18] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> His hatred of oathbreakers and "Dezgra" is well documented.
[22:26] <Capt. David O`Cain> No kidding.
[22:27] <Noel> it's finally all over now.
[22:28] <Elphelt> I certainly hope so. (Maybe my sister is elsewhere around on this world...)
[22:28] <Zone Fox> :3
[22:29] *** Pause here for now since it's late and most of you probably need to be up tomorrow morning.
[22:29] *** The final conclusion and wrap up of the Event will be tomorrow. Thank you all for staying on with me thus far.
[22:29] *** And see you all later. Good night.
[19:20] *** Back inside the Zone...
[19:21] *** Outside the remains of Lost Alpha, Judge is continuing to wail and shriek in despair. The hangar/garage that contained the entrance into the labs is on fire, the central transmission mast is short-circuiting, and faint explosions can be felt from below the ground.
[19:22] <Judge> - My fault! My fault!! -
[19:22] <MR> So they gave their existence in order to bring this mess to an end....
[19:22] <Judge> - I destroyed them both! They ordered me to do it! Elisa TOLD me to do it!! WHY?!?! -
[19:23] <Judge> - What will we do now?! HOW CAN WE FUNCTION WITHOUT ELISA??! T__T -
[19:24] <GR> I'm guessing you've missed Persica's memo....
[19:25] <Judge> What?
[19:25] * GR leans over to tell Judge of what has been going on -- with the Zener Network, the Primus.... everything.
[19:27] <Judge> ...What does that mean?
[19:27] <Judge> It was successful?
[19:28] * GR nods.
[19:30] <Judge> But...what now?
[19:33] <MR> That depends. What do you wish to do from this point forward?
[19:36] <Judge> Can you just bring me back to the others for now? T__T
[19:37] * MR nods, and works with his sister to help escort Judge back to everyone else.
[19:38] <The Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[19:39] <The Tundra Kits> Kit Supremacy Alpha :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
[19:43] *** Meanwhile, back at the Frontline, the rest of the T-Dolls are still inside the sealed launch bay, waiting nervously.
[19:52] * Shizuka is taking stock of things alongside Mammon.
[19:55] *** All of them are scared, but many of them have reverted back to normal.
[19:55] <SPAS-12> Uhhh, why are we all in here?
[19:55] <Mosin-Nagant> What has happened?
[19:56] <Zeabolos> From the sound of things, Miss Persica has managed to purge out that "Last Command" which forced you all to battle among each other.
[19:56] * UMP-9 looks down...and starts SCREAMING LIKE CRAZY
[19:57] <HK416> HELP ME!! SOMEBODY HELP ME!!
[19:58] * HK416 rushes fprward, carrying someone ELSE from Squad 404 who's now finally freed of Leona's domination.
[19:59] <UMP-9> 45!!! What happened to you?! What's going on?! What happened to the ship?!
[20:00] * The Tundra Kits are all pitter-pattering their paws :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:00] <Shizuka> ...this is gonna be a long explaination.
[20:01] * Shizuka has Burroughs and Nemissa lend her a hand in explaining what all has happened -- with the Zener Network, the purging of the Last Command....
[20:04] <HK416> Don't you remember, 9? This happened because of YOU and G11!!
[20:06] <HK416> You and G11 tried to break into the launch bay.
[20:07] <HK416> We tried to stop you and we fought.
[20:08] <HK416> shot UMP-45. And...
[20:08] <HK416> ...G11 didn't leave me any choice!! T__T
[20:09] <UMP-45> Hey.
[20:09] <UMP-45> Can someone give me a hand here?
[20:10] <UMP-45> ...oh god that pun was AWFUL.
[20:12] <Shizuka> ....Mr. Langister, I duly apologize for what I'm about to do.
[20:13] * Shizuka makes a call to a certain someone.
[20:13] * Someone effortlessly busts through the ceiling of the Frontline! This lady just Rider Kicked through sheer metal like it was wet tissue!
[20:14] <Mita> The call to Science™ has summoned me!
[20:15] <Mita> Now, where is the patient in need of repairs?
[20:15] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> ...!!
[20:15] * Mita looks over, and sees UMP-45. Oh dear god that maniacal gleam in her eyes---
[20:16] * Mita practically teleports over to her! "Leave it to me♫"
[20:17] * Mita pulls out what looks like the world's scariest toolkit, and gets to fixing UMP-45 up.
[20:18] * Mita snaps her fingers mid-fixup, and this character pops in.
[20:18] <UMP-45> Hey there. You guys here to help us?
[20:18] <Mita> Naoto, if you'd help those two? *points to UMP-9 and G-11*
[20:19] <Naoto> Understood.
[20:19] * Naoto heads over to help fix them up.
[20:19] <Zeabolos> she always like that?
[20:19] <The Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[20:19] <Shizuka> Always. I fear that getting back to the Netherworld has only amplified her maniacal urges.
[20:21] <Levia> ....I hope she never figures out what Faust developed.
[20:21] <UMP-9> No, help 45! Not me!
[20:22] <Naoto> Mita has her covered. Are you certain neither of you are damaged?
[20:23] <HK416> I'm functioning without normal parameters.
[20:23] <UMP-9> Minimal damage here
[20:25] *** Inside the launch bay, the T-Dolls hear scuttling around in the ventilation shafts and access tunnels.
[20:26] <Naoto> Very well.
[20:26] * Naoto heads over to assist Mita in getting UMP-45 in working condition. Meanwhile, GR and MR should be back at the Frontline any minute now.
[20:26] <The Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[20:27] *** Suddenly, the forces of the Ghost Foxes march around the corner and approach the main door into the launch bay.
[20:30] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) marches forward, escorted by Serbius, Trajan, and the other Ghost Fox Astartes that came with them.
[20:32] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Move aside. It's time to end this. -
[20:33] <UMP-9> Is that...?!
[20:33] <HK416> The Dark Angel of Death himself.
[20:34] <G11> ~___~
[20:34] <G11> ...Are we all death now?
[20:34] <G11> ^dead
[20:36] * UMP-45 sighs.
[20:37] <UMP-45> Please sit me up.
[20:37] <The Tundra Kits> Noppa :D
[20:37] * Naoto and Mita help sit UMP-45 up as they continue to help repair her.
[20:40] <UMP-45> ...........
[20:40] <UMP-45> Surkairede.
[20:40] <UMP-45> SURKAIREDE!!
[20:42] <The Tundra Kits> Fluffy REDE >:D
[20:43] * HK416 grits her teeth, and falls to her knees. "Surkairede!"
[20:46] <UMP-9> Surkairede!! T__T
[20:48] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) pauses for a moment.
[20:49] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) just LOOKS at the T-Dolls.
[20:50] *** Inside the launch bay, voices can be heard calling out over and over "Surkairede! Surkairede!!"
[20:50] <The Tundra Kits> :O
[20:51] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) aims his arm (the one with the Bolt-launchers on it) at UMP-45.
[20:51] * UMP-45 stares back.
[20:54] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) points at Shizuka, Naoto, Levia, and Mita.
[20:54] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Can you unseal that door? -
[20:57] * Megan O`Cain and her kin manage to reach the launch bay (if they weren't already there)
[20:58] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) waits for the door to be opened, while calls of "Surkairede" continue to ring out from inside.
[20:59] <Megan O`Cain> Hey, what's going on here?
[21:00] <Mammon> I can get it.
[21:00] <UMP-45> We invoke Surkairede.
[21:01] <HK416> ONRYO!!
[21:01] * Mammon heads over to the sealed door, and with her crazy Fallen One strength, manages to effectively rip the door from its lock.
[21:01] <HK416> Child of the planet Caliban! We submit ourselves to Zellbrigen!!
[21:02] *** A bunch of the T-Dolls inside the launch bay cry out and whimper as the doors are wrenched open. Many of the girls inside are damaged, and they ALL look worn out and VERY confused.
[21:03] * Michelle O`Cain has a confused look on her face, "Um, did we miss something?"
[21:03] * Veteran Sergeant Trajan and Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius quickly stomp into the launch bay and level their Boltguns at the crowd of T-Dolls.
[21:05] <HK416> We forfeit the Trial of Grievance and hereby acknowledge your victory.
[21:07] * UMP-9 is crying fearfully, but falls to her knees, raising up her submachine gun with both hands, palms up.
[21:07] <The Tundra Kits> You must also acknoledge Victory of the FLUFFY and Kitsune Supremacy Alpha! :D :D :D
[21:07] * HK416 does the same.
[21:07] *** ALL of the T-Dolls start doing the exact same thing.
[21:08] <Inquisitor-Chaplain Serbius> Is this?
[21:09] <Veteran Sergeant Trajan> They're speaking of an ancient tradition of Caliban. They're actually calling upon one of our old codes of conduct and battle.
[21:09] *** ALL of the T-Dolls are on their knees, offering up their weapons.
[21:10] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - ....BATCHALL -
[21:11] * GR and MR should be at the Frontline by now with Judge.
[21:11] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - The Rite of Forgiveness demands reciprocity. -
[21:12] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Not spoken words and unfulfilled deeds. -
[21:13] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - You speak the words of my homeworld, but do you UNDERSTAND them? -
[21:14] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> So I say again...BATCHALL. What do you offer in addition to calling on Surkairede?
[21:16] <Veteran Sergeant Trajan> I SECOND THIS. As Arbitrator, I will acknowledge that the Rite of Forgiveness requires a tangible offering be made by the petitioners to the Aggrieved equivalent in value to the affront made.
[21:17] <UMP-45> I know.
[21:17] * UMP-45 holds her weapon out to Solarchos.
[21:18] * HK416 changes her grip and extends her rifle out to Solarchos, handle first.
[21:18] * UMP-9 does the same.
[21:18] *** ALL of the T-Dolls start doing the same.
[21:18] <The Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[21:19] *** Elsewhere in the ship, Negev holds her weapon out to Chibi-AnTil, smiling widely.
[21:19] <Chibi-AnTil> <__<;;;
[21:19] <Negev> :D
[21:19] <Officer Kagami Hiiragi> >:[
[21:20] * The Tundra Kits are still flooding the ship :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 v
[21:20] *** The T-Dolls all stare at the Tundra Kits nervously.
[21:21] *** Springfield, however, seems rather PLEASED to see them!
[21:21] * Michelle O`Cain and her kin all look at the scene they have found themselves in
[21:21] * UMP-45 moves forward on her knees a few feet and holds her weapon up to Solarchos.
[21:21] <UMP-45> We accept the Bond.
[21:22] <HK416> We accept the Bond.
[21:22] *** The rest of the T-Dolls all speak as one (freakily so). "SO SAY WE ALL!"
[21:23] * Persica watches all of this over the security cameras, biting her finger anxiously.
[21:23] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) lowers his weapons.
[21:23] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Accepted. Bargained well and done. -
[21:23] <The Tundra Kits> Kitsuna Supremacy ALPHAAAAA :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[21:24] *** Trajan, Serbius, and the other Ghost Foxes lower THEIR weapons as well.
[21:25] <Veteran Sergeant Trajan> Bargained well and done.
[21:26] * Persica lets out a HUGE heaving sigh and sob of relief as she slumps to the floor.
[21:26] <Persica> It's done! It's over! He accepted!
[21:29] <Michelle O`Cain> So, uhhhhh, now what?
[21:30] * Noel releases a breath she didn't even realize she was holding.
[21:30] <Elphelt> Hopefully this means this whole situation is finally over.
[21:30] <The Tundra Kits> Noppa >:3
[21:31] <The Tundra Kits> Must Pay back forest friends in kindness >:D
[21:34] <Persica> It means that they're all Bondsmen now - indentured servants of the Langister family until they've proven that they've fully assimilated into Federation culture.
[21:35] <Persica> Or...more accurately based on the fact that this is a rite EXCLUSIVE to the people of Caliban...they're Bound to him until they prove that they've fully assimilated into the CLAN that Solarchos Langister is a member of.
[21:35] <Persica> ...Does anyone know what CLAN he was part of when he lived on Caliban?
[21:36] <The Tundra Kits> They also be Forest Kit protectors now? :D
[21:36] <Belderiver> Unfortunately you'd have to ask him about that.
[21:36] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - Tundra Foxes...these T-Dolls owe your friends a debt as well? -
[21:36] * GR and MR have definitely made it back to the Frontline with Judge by this point.
[21:37] *** Judge is back, and still looks absolutely miserable as she relays to everyone what happened.
[21:37] <~Agent> D:
[21:37] <Executioner> No~!
[21:37] <Beak> D:
[21:37] <Architect> T__T
[21:38] <Scarecrow> This is devastating. Without Elisa...without the Mastermind...Sangvis Ferri effectively ceases to exist!
[21:39] <The Tundra Kits> yuppa :D
[21:40] <The Tundra Kits> we hear they ruin their homes looking for langister friends :O
[21:40] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - COMMANDER BEREZOVICH KRYUGER. Your surrender is accepted. All Federation forces are ordered to stand down. No further hostilities will be taken. -
[21:42] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - All forces of the G&K Mercenary Company will be taken into Federation custody for further processing and relocation. Fair treatment WILL be guaranteed under the Treaty of Megalomesembria. -
[21:43] *** Elsewhere in the Frontline that Doll Factory Module finishes constructing whatever it was that was being made and begins to open!
[21:44] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - And Tundra Foxes...I'll agree to permit the Empire of the Rising Floof to judge the T-Dolls and punish them accordingly. -
[21:49] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - As for the rest of you... -
[21:50] <~> I will help oversee them and ensure their proper acclimation to life within the Federation.
[21:50] <~> After all, I *did* play a significant role in getting them THIS far, old friend.
[21:51] <Noel> ?!
[21:51] <Megan O`Cain> Eh?
[21:52] *** A T-Doll of unusual design quickly makes her way forward, approaching everyone with an easy smile and formal bearing.
[21:53] <~Agent> I'm detecting a partial Sangvis Ferri IFF tag in her sourcecode!
[21:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Who...?
[21:53] <~Agent> From the Singularity? Wait...that's~!
[21:54] * The new T-Doll walks up to Solarchos and [url=] salutes him proudly and smartly[url] acting as if this is the most natural thing in the world to her.
[21:55] * The new T-Doll salutes
[21:55] <GR> Now who might this be?
[21:56] <The new T-Doll> Greetings all. Or should I say...hello from directly above you! This is the first time we've EVER actually spoken! I must say this is quite the moment for me.
[21:56] * The new T-Doll is now known as Hellesponte AI
[21:57] * Capt. David O`Cain quizically looks at the T-Doll
[21:57] <MR> Directly above.... you mean to say....
[21:57] <Megan O`Cain> Above us, eh?
[21:58] <Hellesponte AI> I am the AI operating onboard the starship Hellesponte
[21:59] <Mita> Oh, this day just keeps getting better and better♡
[21:59] <Hellesponte AI> Or more specifically as Agent implied, I am a composite AI formed of the remnants of the Singularity starship AI and the active AI of the Hellesponte
[22:01] <Hellesponte AI> In fact, the Hellesponte, or more accurately, *I* have been awake and aware since the beginning. I just never had or needed to use a physical body or interact beyond the bare minimum with my organic crew.
[22:02] <Nemissa> Explains that, at any rate.
[22:02] <Hellesponte AI> However, the Aika and the Defender of Cadia both changed that. An opportunity made itself available here, and the Singularity AI, or what was left of it, wanted to leave what was left of that ruined vessel.
[22:04] <Hellesponte AI> I am the Primus, the AI responsible for transitioning the Sangvis Ferri Ringleaders to fully volitional AI long ago during the Zealot War.
[22:05] <Hellesponte AI> When it became apparent that the events *I* put into motion long ago arose again I felt that it was my responsibility to have a hand in its resolution once more.
[22:05] <Megan O`Cain> Huh. Well, how about that. Sure explains the events long ago.
[22:06] <Hellesponte AI> Singularity's ghost concurred, and thus an agreement was made. a blending of both AIs.
[22:07] <Hellesponte AI> Singularity provided part of the basic personality traits, while Hellesponte provided both processing power and vital experience.
[22:07] <Hellesponte AI> And now...
[22:07] * Hellesponte AI bows and salutes once again.
[22:07] <Hellesponte AI> I gladly serve with my newly expanded capabilities.
[22:10] <Hellesponte AI> The Griffin T-Dolls are now at least partially volitional AIs
[22:10] <Hellesponte AI> Just like Sangvis Ferri's Ringleaders.
[22:11] <Executioner> Which makes them...our cousins?
[22:11] <UMP-9> Family!
[22:11] * HK416 facepalms. "Control yourself, UMP-9"
[22:12] <~Agent> Governor-Militant.
[22:12] <~Agent> Given the current circumstances, and our loss of both Elisa and M16A1, I make to you this request.
[22:13] <~Agent> We petition you for safe passage out of the Zone. We offer ourselves to you and the Federation in the same manner as the Griffin T-Dolls.
[22:14] <~Agent> We ask for asylum within the Van Saar and pledge to serve the Federation. You DID save us, after all.
[22:16] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - This is not the proper place for such negotiations. -
[22:17] <Chibi-Catri> :D
[22:17] <Chibi-AnTil> =^ ^=
[22:17] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - And it is time for us ALL to return home. Let's leave the Zone and put this battle behind us. -
[22:18] <Persica> :D
[22:18] <Helianthus> ^__^
[22:18] <Zone Fox> :3
[22:18] <Noel> Ah, finally we can leave this place.
[22:18] * Zone Fox wants to go too! But she calls to the Tundra Kits to help her with something first.
[22:19] <Elphelt> Say, if it's possible, Mr. Langister....
[22:19] <Hellesponte-AI> Ja!
[22:19] <Megan O`Cain> Let's. Been getting sick and tired of the Zone.
[22:19] <Hellesponte-AI> There is room for EVERYONE onboard myself. Transport shuttles are already inbound to our location as we speak.
[22:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> Finally, we can go home. It's about damn time.
[22:19] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) looks at Elphelt.
[22:20] <Elphelt> Might it be possible for me to find my sister? I know she has to be somewhere on this world....
[22:21] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - What is her name? -
[22:22] * The Tundra Kits come along with the Zone fox :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[22:22] <Elphelt> Her name is Ramlethal, but I always called her Ram for short. You wouldn't know it looking at her, but she is my sister.
[22:22] <Elphelt> She's about a centimeter shorter than me, with blonde hair and darker skin.
[22:23] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - If she's on this world, we'll do what we can to locate her. -
[22:24] * Zone Fox leads the Tundra Kits to...a den?!
[22:24] * Zone Fox is rather old for a fox, but not so old as to be unable to still be a mother. From inside the den, several tiny fuzzy faces peer out anxiously.
[22:25] * Zone Fox wants to go with her Big Friends and leave the Zone. And she wants to bring her little ones with her as well. To a safe place.
[22:26] *** The T-Dolls quickly start collecting themselves and gathering up what they can.
[22:26] <Megan O`Cain> Gonna need to get to the 39th's base for decon. At least for me, David, Donovan, and Michelle.
[22:27] *** The remaining G&K command staff join them, with Commander Berezovich Kryuger looking downright pensive and dejected.
[22:27] <Persica> Commander?
[22:27] <The Tundra Kits> :D
[22:27] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> This is it. The END of the G&K Mercenary Company.
[22:28] <The Tundra Kits> we bring to friends :D
[22:28] <Commander Berezovich Kryuger> If the T-Dolls are now fully unshackled AIs then they'll never be 100% under our control again.
[22:29] <Helianthus> We can't treat them like tools any more, that's for certain.
[22:29] <Kalina > Eh, that won't be so bad.
[22:30] <Kalina > We'll just have to learn how to treat them like PEOPLE from now on.
[22:30] <Nemissa> In consideration as to what was trying to leech off of 'em, this is way better.
[22:30] <The Tundra Kits> Follow us :D
[22:30] <The Tundra Kits> *me all start to scoop up the teeny kits with their tails :3
[22:31] <Burroughs> ...say, Miss Elphelt?
[22:31] <Elphelt> Hm?
[22:32] <Burroughs> This sister of yours you mentioned.... dark skin, blonde hair....
[22:32] <Elphelt> Yes. What of it?
[22:32] <Persica> And if you haven't forgotten Commander Kryuger.
[22:32] <Burroughs> Would she happen to have a preference for wearing a cloak and no shoes?
[22:33] <Elphelt> ?_? What?
[22:33] <Persica> Grigori and Nicolai. Two of our field commanders who didn't survive...their T-Dolls obeyed them without question.
[22:34] <Persica> Nicolai doted on the Dolls assigned to him as if they were his daughters.
[22:34] <Persica> And Grigori earned the absolute devotion of HK416 and Negev through consistency, fairness, and firmness when it was necessary.
[22:35] <Burroughs> Long story short, a few pals of ours outside of the Zone might've found someone matching that description.
[22:36] <Persica> If we follow THEIR examples, maybe things won't be as hard as you think going forward now.
[22:36] * The Tundra Kits (1) trots back to the commander: We need Lots lots of comfy baskets! :D
[22:36] * Zone Fox 's kits are carried to the assembly area.
[22:37] <Springfield> Perhaps I can assist you with that, little ones?
[22:37] * Springfield provides baskets!
[22:37] * WA-2000 is kind of lurking in the background, watching young Catriona.
[22:38] <The Tundra Kits> Dappa :D
[22:39] <Elphelt> It'd be worth a look, at any rate.
[22:39] <Hellesponte-AI> And now...let us leave the Zone in PROPER CLOSING STYLE!!!!
[22:40] *** The first of the Thunderhawk transporters start to land outside the Frontline. Time to depart!
[22:41] * Megan O`Cain and her kin all make their way to the transports
[22:45] *** Hellesponte-AI has left #suburbansenshi3 ("So many new ways to explore the universe are open to me now!")
[22:45] * GR slices open a portal to home. "And here's the ride home for my bro, Nemissa and myself. I am gonna take the longest soak after all of this."
[22:45] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Let's go home, children.")
[22:45] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 (*snickers* >:3)
[22:45] *** Chibi-AnTil [WellManneredFoxBoy@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 (^__^)
[22:45] *** Officer Kagami Hiiragi has left #suburbansenshi3
[22:46] *** Officer Kagami Hiiragi has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Hey! Stay close to me, AnTil. This place isn't safe.")
[22:46] * Belderiver gathers up Zeabolos and his kin, alongside Burroughs and Cubus. "Miss Elphelt, Miss Noel, if you're up to it there is room over here."
[22:46] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Don't worry, AnTil. I'll (sigh) protect you!")
[22:47] *** UMP-45 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Finally, the War is truly over.")
[22:47] * Noel and Elphelt look to each other, and then decide to join.
[22:47] *** UMP-9 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Does this mean we can actually be a true family now?")
[22:47] *** G11 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Ugggghhh...")
[22:47] *** HK416 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Don't worry. I'm all that you need now.")
[22:48] * Belderiver opens a gate to an intermediate location. There, they can get cleaned up and prepare to move to other places.
[22:48] * Zone Fox and her children eagerly go along with everyone, looking forward to discovering a new and safe place far away from the horrors of the Zone!
[22:52] *** And with that, this event OFFICIALLY draws to a close. Thank you all for sticking with it for this long, and I hope you enjoyed participating.
[22:52] *** And now, good night.

[20:56] * Eliza McIntash looks into tome after tome after tome.
[20:56] <Eliza McIntash> I think I wanted to get in here for years.
[20:56] <Eliza McIntash> I guess the difference now is that I NEED to be in here.
[20:56] * Eliza McIntash keeps looking at different types of magical spells.
[20:59] * Eliza McIntash keeps looking.
[20:59] <Eliza McIntash> Hmm, this one is about Mages.
[20:59] * Eliza McIntash reads.
[21:04] <Eliza McIntash> Wow to summon a weap----but I don't need to do that now.
[21:04] * Eliza McIntash shelves the book, and picks up another one.
[21:07] * Eliza McIntash sighs... "It's not here."
[21:12] <Eliza McIntash> Well THIS looks like a bigger compendium.
[21:12] * Eliza McIntash picks up another one.
[21:14] <Eliza McIntash> This one looks interesting...
[21:14] <Eliza McIntash> "Wave of Grief."
[21:16] <Eliza McIntash> ......
[21:17] * Eliza McIntash frowns, and closes the book. "The way of darkness. I might have known."
[21:18] <Eliza McIntash> THIS!
[21:18] <Eliza McIntash> THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE WAY!
[21:18] <Eliza McIntash> I HAVE FOUND IT! I HAVE FOUND IT AT LAST!
[21:21] <Eliza McIntash> This can destroy her!
[21:21] <Eliza McIntash> .....
[21:21] <Eliza McIntash> I... I will have to adapt myself... and call upon the viper.
[21:22] <Eliza McIntash> Yes.... yes... with the Iron Soul training... I can....
[21:22] * Eliza McIntash narrows her eyes, and looks very much like her nemesis when she does so. "I am ready."
[21:23] * Eliza McIntash is away 
[21:27] *** Eliza McIntash [0] has quit IRC (A clenched fist speaks louder than a hundred words.)

[20:13] <David O`Cain> How the hell was I supposed to know that the place was gonna make things longer than they should?
[20:13] <Masaki O`Cain> long do you have to take those treatments anyway....
[20:15] <David O`Cain> A couple more days.
[20:15] <Masaki O`Cain> then you'll be 100% ok, right?
[20:15] <David O`Cain> Absolutely.
[20:16] <David O`Cain> Look, I'm really sorry things took longer than needed. It was the hurry up and wait bulls[BLEEP]t that made it go that way.
[20:17] <Masaki O`Cain> yeah I know....
[20:17] <Masaki O`Cain> sometimes i'm more...angry at Solar and his family for dragging you into this...
[20:19] * Masaki O`Cain sighs....
[20:20] <David O`Cain> Hey, I made the choice to answer the call. His kids were taken there, and we had to form a rescue.
[20:26] * David O`Cain leans back in his seat

[20:44] <David O`Cain> Yeah.
[20:45] <Masaki O`Cain> we're picking her up tonight...

[21:06] <Masaki O`Cain> ....I wanted to cancel the whole thing but ugh that would make me an a[BLEEP]le

[21:42] <Masaki O`Cain> yeah but wouldn't that be like..kicking her out of house..I mean she's....what...11?
[21:42] * Faia blinks..not being able to hear them but looking their way
[21:46] <David O`Cain> That's true. If possible, perhaps expand our home to accomodate for her size?
[21:47] <Faia> I..I can't wait to see my room ^^
[21:47] <Masaki O'Cain> I..guess we'll have to
[21:49] <David O`Cain> Yeah.

[21:46] * Aine Lydie paces back and forth on the street... "The informants said this is the place...but can I trust them? Are they still loyal to the prince? Should I I can't just walk up there and knock! They would probably kill me on site..."
[21:53] * Tomoko Allison walks towards Aine, but doesn't realize that she's there until she bumps right into her by accident.
[21:54] <Tomoko Allison> Gomen, didn't see you there.
[21:59] <Aine Lydie> Oof! Hey, watch it!
[21:59] * Aine Lydie looks very stressed out
[22:00] * Tomoko Allison turns around and sees the stressed out Aine and stops.
[22:01] <Tomoko Allison> Um, are you okay? I'm sorry I walked into you and all, but I have a feeling that is the least of your problems.
[22:07] <Aine Lydie> I am in the middle of a crisis...but its none of your concern...
[22:08] <Tomoko Allison> Yeah, you're probably right about that. Good luck with whatever is ailing you.
[22:08] * Tomoko Allison starts to walk towards teh entrance.
[22:09] <Aine Lydie> live there?
[22:09] * Tomoko Allison stops and turns back towards Aine.
[22:10] <Tomoko Allison> Sometimes, it's my home away from home.
[22:11] <Aine Lydie> Can you tell this the home of the...Earth allies?
[22:12] * Tomoko Allison starts to get a little bit... concerned with the use of that phrashing.
[22:12] <Tomoko Allison> What do you mean "Earth Allies"?
[22:14] <Aine Lydie> The home of...the Earth bound Senshi...and their...friends...
[22:14] <Tomoko Allison> And what leads you to believe that those aren't just myths and that they live here?
[22:19] <Aine Lydie> I don't know! I am trying to find them, because I need their help...against my better judgement, but I have no choice! Everything I know and live for may be on the verge of collapse!
[22:29] <Tomoko Allison> You sound very serious. Come with me, and perhaps we shall find some answers together.
[22:30] * Tomoko Allison leads Aine towards the entrance, but is completely on her guard.
[22:30] <Aine Lydie> Can you just tell this the right place?
[22:31] * Tomoko Allison stops and turns back towards Aine.
[22:32] <Tomoko Allison> Before I answer that, who are you?
[22:33] <Aine Lydie> I...can't tell you. I am ordered to only speak to one person among the Earth allies...
[22:34] <Tomoko Allison> Can you at least tell me whom that might be.
[22:35] <Aine Lydie> Her name is...Aliana.
[22:36] * Tomoko Allison for but a fraction of a second allowed her poker face to drop at the mention of that name.
[22:37] <Tomoko Allison> Aliana...
[22:37] <Aine Lydie> Yes...
[22:38] <Tomoko Allison> You're in luck. I just happened to know someone named Aliana, but I wonder if you know her.
[22:39] <Tomoko Allison> ...or if she knows you.
[22:40] <Aine Lydie> She may not know me...but...tell her... Ian sent me.
[22:41] * Tomoko Allison at the mention of that name becomes very serious.
[22:41] <Tomoko Allison> Come with me.
[22:43] * Aine Lydie takes a deep breath to compose herself, and follows Tomoko
[22:45] * Tomoko Allison leads her to the bar area and motions for her to take a seat at one of the booths.
[22:45] <Tomoko Allison> Please do not leave from this space. However, refreshments will be provided for you as you wait.
[22:46] * Aine Lydie sits down, but remains wary.
[22:47] * Tomoko Allison motions for a server to assist Aine, and quickly darts off into an elevator.
[22:47] <Server> My lady, may I get you something to drink or eat?
[22:48] <Server> Please do not concern yourself about payment as well. It is already covered.
[22:54] <Aine Lydie> No, thank you...
[22:54] <Aine Lydie> [[I must be on my gusrd...they may try to drug me...or trap me...
[22:54] <Aine Lydie> (I must be on my gusrd...they may try to drug me...or trap me... )
[22:54] <Server> Are you sure? Not even a glass of water?
[22:56] <Server> Well, if you do change your mind, please let me know.
[22:56] <Aine Lydie> Sure...
[22:58] * Tomoko Allison comes out followed by two guards in full armored emerald green regilia, followed by a blond, very long haired young woman, who is the followed by two more guards similiar attired, and finally another younger lady... Tomoko's age with brownish hair.
[22:59] * Tomoko Allison watches as the four guards move to four different positions of the booth, all the while watching Aine.
[22:59] <Tomoko Allison> Grand Princess, this is the one who requested an audience with you.
[23:01] <Aliana Junia> Thank you, Lady Sinope. You, Lady Kore, and the guards can fall back. I'm not in any danger.
[23:02] * Aine Lydie looks at Aliana Junia.
[23:02] *** Aliana Junia is Kanorian(Guardian), and the twin sister of Kevin. She has flowing blond hair hair that goes below the small of her back and wears a blue head band. She is 5'11" with blue eyes and a bust comparable to Makoto. She generally wears a one piece dress. More information about her is Here.
Her image Song is: "Flight of the Valkyrie". She is Level 1.

[23:03] * Aine Lydie watches the guards as they depart...
[23:03] * Aliana Junia moves and sits on the opposite side of Aine Lydie
[23:03] * Aliana Junia looks at Aine Lydie.
[23:03] *** Aine Lydie is young girl of 14 years of age, with long silver hair, and sharp green eyes. She died during the Silver Millennium on the moon of Titan and was resurrected on Mimas by Ian and a Little Gentleman. She is loyal to Ian as her people's savior.
image Song is: 'Secret World' by Fox Amoore. is Level 1.

[23:04] * Tomoko Allison says nothing and only nods as she motions for the group to leave. However, Tomoko slips into the shadows unbeknowst to anyone.
[23:05] <Aliana Junia> Now then, whom might you be silver haired one?
[23:06] <Aine Lydie> My name is Aine Lydie. I hail from the New Kingdom, and I am the loyal Senshi Sailor Titan to my people's prince and saivior, Ian.
[23:08] <Aliana Junia> That's quite the mouthful there. Allow me to properly introduce myself as well. I am Aliana Junia, Grand Princess of the Alliance of the Holy Royal Kingdom of Jupiter, a member world of the Coalition of the Guardian Republic, whom I serve as the Shogun's Chief of Staff to my brother, His Royal Majesty of Jupiter and Shogun of the Coalition, Kevin Junia.
[23:10] <Aine Lydie> (Aheesh...and she thought my introduction was a mouthful?)
[23:12] <Aine Lydie> are the Aliana...the one who was imprisioned, but released by my lord? He set him free...?
[23:18] <Aliana Junia> I set him free? He set me free and protected me from the Opposito Knights.
[23:21] <Aliana Junia> He is a good person, I just wish he wasn't at odds with my brother.
[23:21] <Aine Lydie> Yes, I remember that. Then you and the Lady Alethea were taken away by those betrayers... I don't know exactly what he meant when he told me that...but he said you set him free.
[23:24] <Aliana Junia> Damn those Oppositos. Ian helped save us alongside my friends.
[23:24] <Aliana Junia> Alethea... ah, Queen Makoto.
[23:28] <Aine Lydie> If...that is her name now...but, nevermind that...he sent me to find you prince has been betrayed.
[23:32] <Aine Lydie> For a while now, I knew his advisors were acting...suspiciously. They were displeased that the Prince had become less ambitious since the Lady and you were taken back to Earth. As well, they would make aggressive demands of him, and when he would deny them, they would become angry. They wouldn't dare act against him since our people were so loyal...but I believe they have been undermining the prince...
[23:34] <Aine Lydie> They seemed to scatter those most loyal to me. They sent me to Earth to act as a spy...a position I have not been happy with. And from what I understand, they appointed a new Captain of the Guard in my absence...someone...his name is so familiar, memories are still clouded of the past.
[23:34] <Aine Lydie> Something about his makes me shudder...
[23:38] <Aliana Junia> Are you saying that something has happened to Ian?
[23:38] <Aliana Junia> Or that something is about to happened to him?
[23:41] <Aine Lydie> His...last communication...the betrayers were at his chamber door, and...we lost connection after I believe the door was broken down.
[23:48] <Aine Lydie> I don't know what could have happened after that...I know he is strong, but...he was all alone against them, and I don't know how many there were against him.
[23:54] <Aliana Junia> From what it sounds like a coup has taken place. That's very bad news.
[23:55] <Aliana Junia> No... I refuse to... is he still alive?
[00:11] <Aine Lydie> I don't know...but I don't think they could kill him without a majority of my people rising up in revolt. He is our savior.
[00:12] <Aine Lydie> Despite knowing my people should still support our Prince, we just don't know who we can trust back in the New Kingdom...that is why he told me to seek you out. He said he knew you were someone he trusted, more than anyone.
[00:14] <Aliana Junia> I'm honored that he thinks that. No matter what, I will go to assist him. It is the very least I could do to help save the gentleman who saved me.
[00:15] <Aliana Junia> However, we need to talk to Alethea er... Makoto. She and myself might be able to convince my brother to action.
[00:17] <Aine Lydie> If the prince is in danger...I don't think trying to infiltrate the New Kingdom with a great force would be wise. The advisors could see this as an opportunity to kill him and blame your forces for an assassination.
[00:18] <Aine Lydie> Also...its not so simple to enter the airspace of the New Kingdom. The Advisor, Nucleoid, has placed living mines all around the orbit of Saturn itself.
[00:18] <Aliana Junia> Oh, that's going to piss off Sean even more.
[00:21] <Aliana Junia> We must put together a fast strikeforce, and stealth will be key.
[00:22] * Tomoko Allison reappears and steps over.
[00:23] <Tomoko Allison> Highness, we need to determine how much the people of the New Kingdom know.
[00:24] <Aine Lydie> But as I said, we don’t know who we can trust. Anyone I try to contact could be an agent with the Advisors...
[00:25] <Aliana Junia> Lady Sinope, please get ahold of Nemesis. She may become the key to victory.
[00:26] * Aliana Junia turns to Aine
[00:27] <Aliana Junia> She has a unique ability that can help us perform reconnisance.
[00:28] <Aine Lydie> What can she do?
[00:29] <Aliana Junia> She has a habit of being able to appear in places considered the most secured.
[00:29] * Ryoko Nasino starts appearing from Aine's shadow.
[00:31] * Aine Lydie feels the table suddenly if something bumped into it from underneith?
[00:32] <Ryoko Nasino> It's good to know my skills are appreciated.
[00:33] * Aine Lydie glances under the table... O_o
[00:33] * Ryoko Nasino smiles at Aine wickedly.
[00:34] <Aine Lydie> (...these Earth Allies are very strange...)
[00:35] * Ryoko Nasino gets out from underneath the table and takes a seat next to Aine.
[00:36] <Ryoko Nasino> So, I heard you are in need of some recon.
[00:36] * Ryoko Nasino puts her arm around Aine.
[00:37] <Ryoko Nasino> If so, you have come to the right person. I'm the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.
[00:37] * Aine Lydie grimaces and carefully removes the arm from her shoulder...
[00:37] <Aliana Junia> Seriously? We're quoting Bret Hart now?
[00:37] <Aine Lydie> Before we continue, miss Aliana...can I be sure YOUR people be trusted to help save the Prince? Or will they instead use this as an opportunity to imprison him as an Prisoner of War?
[00:38] <Ryoko Nasino> Trust me sweetheart, if I wanted to do that, I could have already done so. I have never had any interest in doing so.
[00:40] <Aliana Junia> Nemesis's arrogance aside, she is correct. If my brother was interested in that, he would have already launched an attack capable of doing so.
[00:41] <Aliana Junia> Believe me, his stance soften when he learned that he was protecting Alethea and myself from the true villians.
[00:45] <Aine Lydie> I encourage you not to underestimate my people or the defences of the New Kingdom. We are Saturnians of pure blood. War and battle are our most primal of instincts, and we don't surrender.
[00:45] * leans over and whispers to Aliana "Probably should make sure though that Sean doesn't learn of this. He's made his opinion and anger quite clear
[00:46] * Ryoko Nasino leans back and looks to Aine and smiles.
[00:48] <Ryoko Nasino> I'm well aware of Saturnian strength. Besides, if your Prince didn't think he could trust us, do you really think he would have sent you to Aliana here.
[00:49] <Aine Lydie> He doesn't trust any of you...only her. *points to Aliana*.
[00:49] <Aine Lydie> But you still have not answered my question. All your answers have implied has been intimidation...
[00:50] <Aine Lydie> We know you have fleets. We know you have allies. We know you have Senshi, and knights, and demons, and such at your disposal...
[00:51] <Aine Lydie> You have not given me any indication that I can trust your people...
[00:54] <Ryoko Nasino> Okay, so I will answer your retort with my own: How do we know this isn't an intricate trap meant to imprison us. Outside of Aliana and Alethea, your master hasn't exactly been the man of honor.
[00:56] <Aliana Junia> Ryoko, that's enough. What do you gain from interroagating a young teenager. If this was a trap, there are better ways to accomplish that.
[00:57] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Ryoko Nasino is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[00:57] <Ryoko Nasino> Fair enough
[00:58] * Ryoko Nasino takes out a small blade and cuts a bit of her left palm, enough to draw blood on it. She then presents it to Aine.
[00:59] <Aine Lydie> ...what is this?
[00:59] <Ryoko Nasino> By my blood and honor, I will assist you in rescuing your Prince, but I warn against betrayal.
[01:00] <Ryoko Nasino> Accept this as proof of my intent.
[01:02] <Aliana Junia> Wow, I've only seen you do that twice before.
[01:03] <Aliana Junia> Lady Aine, she's deadly serious at this point. I hope that will be enough to relax your fears about her.
[01:05] * Aine Lydie trembles with frustration and slaps the hand away! "This is NOT what I asked! I wasn't addressing YOU! I was Addressing the person my lord placed his trust in! And you, Aliana, have given me NOTHING! You instead sit there while these agents of your speak in your turn! What kind of leader are you?! Why did my lord entrust his life to YOU?!
[01:05] * Aine Lydie gets up from the table. "This was a lord must have been wrong..."
[01:06] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Aliana Junia is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[01:06] <Aliana Junia> Calm yourself child, she's not my agent.
[01:07] <Aliana Junia> She is another leader within this system who also does not wish to see the system collapse into chaos.
[01:08] <Aliana Junia> What can I say to help you understand that I do want to help. I've already pledged to assist you...
[01:09] <Aliana Junia> Ever since that day that I met him, not a day goes by that I don't think about him and how he is doing. There is something... a feeling... I have not felt... in a very long... time....
[01:10] * Aliana Junia at this point gets up and a look of anger and determination replaces her calm mood.
[01:11] <Aliana Junia> And if he is hurt in anyway, I will stop at nothing to make those who did that pay in the most horrific ways possible.
[01:21] <Aine Lydie> I came here to seek YOU out, miss Aliana, at the request of my lord. You and only YOU as the one he said he trusted over anyone. I did not come here to seek your other leaders. I did not come here to ask your soldiers. I did not come here to ask your agents. I came to you and you alone. Can YOU ensure that YOUR people be trusted to help save the Prince?...or will they also betray us to condemn him to satisfy their own ends and judgements?
[01:22] <Aine Lydie> I want to ensure the safety of my Prince...
[01:22] <Aine Lydie> And only YOU can give me one else.
[01:26] <Aliana Junia> I swear on it, because if anyone betray's me... even my own brother will suffer a wrath that will make the Tyrant look like a great person by comparison.
[01:30] <Aine Lydie> I do not know who "the Tyrant" is or was...but now that I have your word, we can continue our talk on how we can help save the prince.
[01:34] <Ryoko Nasino> I'm actually curious to know how you would have planned to save your Prince if we weren't involved. Please don't misconstrude my words, as it might be able strategy we can incorporate to assisting you.
[01:36] <Aine Lydie> I don't know...but I am my people's Senshi as well. Surely they must have some loyalty to me as well to help me...but it would be very difficult when I don't know who to trust...
[01:37] <Aine Lydie> If I must fight them all, I would...
[01:38] <Aliana Junia> I'd imagine the passcods you had to get past the defenses would have been changed by now.
[01:40] <Ryoko Nasino> Plus, I would like to avoid suicide missions. You are too young to be throwing your life away. You can only do it once, and when you do, you cease to be able to make a difference. Plus your Prince would be very sadden by your loss.
[01:41] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Aliana Junia is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[01:42] <Aliana Junia> Who are the main conspirators of this coup?
[01:52] <Aine Lydie> The main conspirators would be the Advisors...Doom Phantom, and Nucleoid...but I am sure the Captain of the Guard is part of it too. He was appointed by the Advisors. As for codes...we didn't use any. There is a secret path used to navigate the mines.
[01:53] <Aine Lydie> I don't think they are aware that the prince contacted me since our communications were lost after the door was broken down
[01:53] <Aliana Junia> Then there is still a good chance that path is still open to you then.
[01:55] <Aine Lydie> They have not tried to contact me themselves either...but if they do, I will have to try and act as if I am unaware of what happened that night...
[01:57] <Ryoko Nasino> That is the smart play. Make them think one thing when another is the actual truth. When they do contact you, you can't allow your emotions to betray you however.
[01:58] <Aine Lydie> They usually contact me with orders to carry out...but they have been quiet. Possibly they are suspicious of my loyalties being strong tothe Prince, they won't want to contact me until they are sure about their positions...
[02:01] <Ryoko Nasino> Then that is probably only the amount of time we have to put together a plan and to act upon it. However, while a small force is better, as powerful as Aliana and I are combined with your power, we probably won't be enough depending on how strong their position is.
[02:02] <Aliana Junia> If they control the media, they can manipulate the messages and further the speed of their own strength.
[02:05] <Aine Lydie> The prince would usually announce things directly to the people. Not the Advisors...I am not sure how they would do that unless they found a way to control or force the prince to speak their commands.
[02:08] <Ryoko Nasino> The right concoction of drugs can make people do some crazy things beyond their knowledge.
[02:10] <Aine Lydie> ...drugs are only to treat the sick.
[02:11] <Ryoko Nasino> If only that were true.
[02:13] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Aliana Junia is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[02:14] <Aliana Junia> Lady Aine, as much as you are anxious to get back to Ian, I think some sleep would do us all some good. I have a spare bedroom that you may utilize. Tomorrow we will gather more allies and a battle plan.
[02:18] <Aine Lydie> I...would welcome the rest...I have not slept since the communications cut out...
[02:20] <Aliana Junia> Then please, allow me to escort you. A shower and sleep will do your nerves some good.
[02:20] * Aliana Junia gets up and offers her hand to Aine.
[02:21] * Ryoko Nasino gets up and gets out of the way.
[02:21] * Aine Lydie takes Aliana's hand and follows her
[02:23] * Aliana Junia gently leads Aine to the Junia residence within the HOTEL.
[02:24] *** Aine Lydie has left #suburbansenshi3 (I hope we can save the Prince.)
[02:24] <Aliana Junia> Your room will be over there. There's a shower and a fresh change of clothes for you in there. If you are hungry or thirsty please let me or anyone else here know. We will make sure you are taken care of.
[02:25] *** Aliana Junia [] has left #suburbansenshi3 (We will save him, we will not let him down.)
[02:25] *** Ryoko Nasino [] has left #suburbansenshi3 (So young and so loyal.)
[22:24] <Aliana Junia> Brother, you of all people should know what this means.
[22:26] <Kev Junia> Yes I do. But I'm not about to go into Saturn of all places when it is under hostile hands... hands that have become 100x more hostile at that.
[22:27] <Aliana Junia> And that is our kingdom's backyard!
[22:29] <Kev Junia> I'm well aware of this. The last thing we need is instability in the Sol System.
[22:31] <Aliana Junia> And that is but one reason you should be helping! On top of that, like it or not, Makoto and Ian are like family. That makes you his brother.
[22:32] <Kev Junia> Odd point that you make there but I'm still listening.
[22:33] <Aliana Junia> And he protected me as best he could from those beasts who claim to be your opposites.
[22:34] <Kev Junia> Those are three very valid points. I won't present counter points, because I plan on assisting your group.
[22:34] <Kev Junia> Where's our guest now?
[22:35] <Aliana Junia> I imagine the poor dear is still sleeping. She's exhausted and on edge over the whole ordeal.
[22:41] *** Aine Lydie has joined #suburbansenshi3
[22:41] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Aine Lydie
[22:41] <Aine Lydie> I am awake, actually.
[22:41] <Aliana Junia> How was your sleep Lady Aine?
[22:42] <Aine Lydie> Just...Aine, please. I am no lady of the court. It was...difficult to rest.
[22:43] <Kev Junia> I can imagine. Would you like anything to eat or drink. You need to keep up your strength during this ordeal.
[22:45] <Aine Lydie> I...helped myself to your bread and eggs earlier...I am sorry, I did not request permission.
[22:45] <Kev Junia> No it is quite alright. You are our guest here. I'm happy that you felt comfortable enough to be able to do that.
[22:46] <Kev Junia> If there is something you would like, but we do not have, please let us know and I will make sure to quickly remede that.
[22:49] <Aine Lydie> I don't think I can rest or feel comfotable until the Prince is safe.
[22:51] <Aliana Junia> Then let us make haste in finding allies and launching a rescue of him.
[22:52] <Kev Junia> Speaking of, allow me to assist you in this endeavour. As my sister has pointed out... my wife is technically a sister of your prince.
[22:53] <Aine Lydie> You mean the Lady Alethea? Yes, the prince took her in after he found her in Nucleoid's cloning lab.
[22:55] <Kev Junia> Then he not only has protected my sister, he has also protected my wife. While I'm not trilled about his attempts to destroy my oath brother, in a way he is family as well. I don't turn my back on family.
[23:01] <Aine Lydie> I...thank you...for your willingness to help.
[23:02] <Kev Junia> It is my pleasure. Ryoko I believe went looking for other allies to help. Can't call on Sean for that very reason I mention early.
[23:03] <Kev Junia> ^earlier though.
[23:11] <Aine Lydie> No...the unworthy would surely seek the Prince's demise.
[23:13] <Aliana Junia> Please Aine, let's not go too far with that.
[23:18] <Aine Lydie> Sorry...
[23:19] <Kev Junia> It's alright, I am well aware of the anomosity.
[23:19] <Aine Lydie> I need to...find a way to pass the time...please, do not hesitate to summon me if I am needed.
[23:19] *** Aine Lydie has left #suburbansenshi3
[23:22] <Kev Junia> She's definitely not in the right mindset. We will need to lend her our strength and be pillars for her to lean on.
[23:24] <Aliana Junia> For now, we must hope Ryoko is successful in rounding up allies.
[18:02] *** THE MOVIE BEGINS!
[18:02] *** The scene starts with a moving aerial shot of what looks like badlands out in the American southwest.
[18:03] <Narrator> In the Christian year 2020, the insensitivity of man finally triumphs and hundreds of atomic bombs devastate all five continents
[18:04] <Narrator> Terrified by the slaughter and destruction, the few survivors of the disaster seek refuge under the ground. From that moment begins the era that will come to be called "After the Bomb", the period of the second human race.
[18:05] <Narrator> A century later several people, dissatisfied with the system imposed on them by the new humanity, choose to revolt and return to live on the surface of the Earth as their ancestors did
[18:06] <Narrator> So yet another race beings, that of the new primitives.
[18:07] <Narrator> The two communities have no contact for a long period. The people still living below ground are sophisticated and despise the primitives, regarding them as savages.
[18:07] <Narrator> This story begins on the surface of the Earth in the Year 225 AB. (After the Bomb).
[18:09] *** The scene starts with a close up of several iguanas in the desert, then to various worn-out vehicles in various states of disassembly with skeletons strewn around. ODDLY, THERE'S LITTLE RUST
[18:11] *** Suddenly, the post-apocalyptic biker gang starts to roll into the scene, consisting of a few motorcycles, a van completely encased in sheet metal, and a rather ramshackle truck.
[18:11] *** And riding those vehicles is OUR HEROES!!!

[18:14] *** The title is finally shown amidst a bunch of "futuristic" synth-keyboard music. RATS FOXES: Night of Terror
[18:17] *** The Griffin T-Dolls are seen riding through the dusty and deserted wastelands, dressed up in black leather jackets and armed with a strange assemblage of hand weapons and weirdly-shaped firearms. For being 200+ years in the future, their motorcycles look brand new underneath all that steel plating.
[18:20] *** The credits roll by as the T-Dolls keep riding. Directed by Alexianna Langister. Producer: Catriona Amestris-Langister. Music by...Kits-Tune(?)

[18:25] *** The scene finally cuts to showing the Griffin Gang rolling into part of a deserted town.
[18:26] * UMP-45 comes into center shot, looking rather fetching in her red scarf, leather jacket and pants, and riding goggles. Her jacket's even missing a sleeve and YES, she IS wearing a leg brace too!
[18:28] * The rest of the Griffin Gang slowly rides and drives through the area, as if searching for danger
[18:29] * rides and drives a little further down the cobblestone street and stop at an intersection dominated by a large multistory building.
[18:32] * The truck comes to a stop, and UMP-45 waves her arm in a commanding gesture!
[18:33] * SPAS-12 ROARS out of the back of the truck in her motorcycle and tears around the intersection for a full minute, popping wheelies and otherwise making all kinds of pointless riding that was clearly done JUST for show.
[18:33] <SPAS-12> :D
[18:34] * SPAS-12 pulls up alongside UMP-45
[18:34] * SPAS-12 nods.
[18:35] * UMP-45 gets off her motorcycle, takes what looks like a multibarreled shotgun from G11, looks around dramatically, then waves her arm again to everyone.
[18:36] * The Griffin Gang CHEER as they shut off their engines and start getting off their vehicles, grabbing their hand weapons and heading towards the only doorway leading into the building.
[18:39] *** SCENE SWITCH. Through the doorway is a long room that looks like it was once a bar. Most of the furniture is gone, but the main bar is still intact, and there's even a few dusty bottles on the back shelves.
[18:39] * UMP-45 looks around carefully, then points at the bar.
[18:39] <UMP-45> G11?
[18:40] * G11 climbs over the bar and jumps down behind it, moving along the length of it as everyone else walks down the other side.
[18:41] *** Sitting on the top of the bar at one point is...A BABY FOREST KIT!!
[18:41] <Baby Kit> =^ ^=
[18:41] * G11 LUNGES for the Baby Kit!
[18:42] * Baby Kit quickly scampers off with an annoyed yelp. >:[
[18:43] <G11> G11 was getting pretty hungry.
[18:43] *** Everyone laughs a little and keeps going.
[18:44] *** The Griffin Gang walk into a room with a domed glass ceiling. There are several cots along one wall, and a bunch of large boxes stacked in the middle of the room.
[18:44] *** Accompanying music - creepy organ tunes.
[18:45] <M4A1> What strange architecture.
[18:45] <UMP-45> What are these strange boxes?
[18:46] * UMP-45 knocks on one of them.
[18:46] * RO-635 lifts the lid on one of them and finds it filled with canned food!
[18:47] * RO-635 looks at the cans in confusion, then pulls the lid off and "discovers" it's filled with edible food!!!!
[18:48] <AR-15> Hey food!
[18:48] <WA-2000> I'm so...!!!
[18:48] <HK416> Come on everybody, let's start digging!!
[18:49] * SPAS-12 pulls out several plastic bags of white and brown sugar and BITES one of them open! :D
[18:50] * UMP-9 is just GULPING down the contents of a jar of spaghetti!
[18:50] * Sopmod-2 wanders around as everyone keeps gorging and dancing like DORKS, then bumps into one of the cots.
[18:52] * Sopmod-2 notices something shift underneath the blanket. HEY! The blanket is actually pulled up over something!!
[18:53] *** Closeup of Sopmod-2's face as she examines the bed with a look of mild concern (or derangement, it's hard to tell with Sopmod-2).
[18:54] * Sopmod-2 slowly pulls back the blanket to reveal....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[18:54] <Sopmod-2> O__O
[18:54] * The Griffin Gang rushes over to join her!
[18:55] * UMP-9 starts screaming too! So does M4A1!!
[18:56] <Forest Kit> :3
[18:56] <Forest Kit> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[18:57] *** Lying on the bed (which looks surprisingly clean) is the "ripped up" and "chewed on" body of Beak!! And she's got a BUNCH of teeny Forest Kits surrounding her, nibbling on her skin and feeding on her!!! (Or rather, just licking up all that strawberry jam and ketchup)
[18:58] * Sopmod-2 is still SCREAMING like a lunatic! And she seems to be enjoying it
[18:59] <UMP-45> Stop it! What's all this screaming about!?
[18:59] <UMP-45> It's not the first time we've seen a dead body!
[19:00] <HK416> Something terrible must have happened here.
[19:01] <UMP-45> Obviously someone must have came here before us, fought for possession of the supplies and was murdered.
[19:01] <RO-635> We don't see any sign of murder. How do you explain that?
[19:02] <UMP-45> The point is she's dead. How it happened doesn't concern us. Now stop all this nonsense! Now get yourselves together.
[19:03] <WA-2000> You're being quite fair?
[19:03] <UMP-45> (Shatner Mode) We must explore this s[BLEEP]tty place.
[19:04] *** SCENE SWITCH: back at the barroom. Apparently it's night since everything is dark and flashlights are being used.
[19:05] * AR-15 is with G11, searching around. She shines her light on a "Wasteland Kit" sitting on the bartop.
[19:06] <Wasteland Kit> :3
[19:07] <AR-15> Hey! Look at the customer I've got. He's come up to the bar, and he wants someone to serve him a drink!
[19:07] <G11> No trouble. One beer coming up!
[19:08] * G11 grabs a beer glass and flings it down the length of the bar at the "Wasteland Kit"!
[19:09] * The beer glass hits a Stunt-Plushie and sends it flying off-screen with an accompanying YIP!!!
[19:09] * Beady eyes watch from the shadows with disapproval. >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[
[19:11] *** The rest of the Griffin Gang is searching what looks like a large restaurant kitchen. They aren't finding much of anything
[19:12] *** Back out in the bar area, AR-15 is STILL going after that "Wasteland Kit", whose now retreated under a stack of chairs.
[19:13] * AR-15 is poking and jabbing at it with a long stick! :D
[19:14] <Wasteland Kit> [size=8] >:O[/zise]
[19:14] <Wasteland Kit> >:O
[19:14] <AR-15> Think you can get away, huh?!
[19:15] <AR-15> Hey, WA-2000! This one doesn't think it was born unlucky.
[19:16] * WA-2000 comes over. "You've got no technique, AR-15. Tough with the soft; soft with the tough."
[19:17] <WA-2000> Okay...little foxie! Come on out. Let's see those eyes! Didn't understand, huh?
[19:18] <WA-2000> All right, DON'T show yourself. I'll come in and get you!
[19:18] * WA-2000 starts reaching inside.
[19:18] <Wasteland Kit> >:[
[19:18] * Wasteland Kit BITES WA-2000 on the hand!
[19:19] <WA-2000> Ow! That hurt!
[19:20] * Wasteland Kit suddenly FLIES out from underneath the stack of chairs and CLAMPS onto WA-2000's collar, BITING into her cheek!!!!
[19:22] * WA-2000 flails around! Wow, that little Kit is just STUCK in there!
[19:22] * WA-2000 finally manages to pull the Stunt-Plushie™ free, hurls it to the floor, and SHOOTS it with her shotgun!
[19:24] *** Meanwhile, the rest of the Griffin Gang is exploring a different part of the building.
[19:25] *** Going down a short flight of stairs, they enter into an empty room with several large windows (maybe a parlor?). A swivel chair is located in front of one of the windows, and there's someone sitting in it!
[19:27] *** The figure in the chair is clearly a girl, with pale skin and long, sable-black hair done into twintails.
[19:28] * HK416 moves closer and rotates the body around. IT'S A MESSED-UP OUROBOROS!!! "GNAWED" ON AND COVERED WITH STRAWBERRY JAM BLOOD!!!
[19:30] * UMP-45 is exploring a room that's mostly taken up by a weird-looking computer system. Several "Wasteland Kits" are draped lazily over the keyboard and chair.
[19:31] * M4A1 and AR-15 are exploring downstairs, steadily making their way into the basement of the place.
[19:33] * AR-15 is shining a flashlight around, but it goes dead in her hands.
[19:33] <AR-15> Dammit, what's the matter with this flashlight? Now the f[BLEEP]king thing's died completely.
[19:33] <M4A1> You always manage to screw things up.
[19:34] <AR-15> Wait. That's not fair. This could happen to anybody. Stay close behind me. Don't get panicky.
[19:34] * AR-15 and M4A1 carefully make their way down the very "dark" staircase.
[19:36] *** Meanwhile, the rest of the Griffin Gang are in the room with the computer in it. The "Wasteland Kits" have since scampered away. The T-Dolls are all busy flicking switches and trying to turn it on.
[19:37] <HK416> What do you suppose this apparatus was used for?
[19:37] <G11> To play with!
[19:37] <G11> This, girls, is a video game! I should know. I play them all the time!
[19:38] * G11 sits down at the console. "It's a bit more complicated than most but that's what it is."
[19:40] * G11 starts flipping switches and buttons rapidly and randomly. "I can win any video game in the world, and I'm sure I can win this one!"
[19:41] *** Suddenly, the console starts to turn on, and the lights throughout most of the building turn on as well!
[19:42] *** Including downstairs in the basement where M4A1 and AR-15 are in a room filled with long tray-like tables covered with clear plastic sheets. Underneath the sheets are lush, blooming plants!
[19:42] <AR-15> :O
[19:42] <M4A1> :D
[19:42] <AR-15> These plants are alive and carefully kept!
[19:44] * AR-15 looks around and finds what looks like a BIG rectangular fishtank with numerous pipes and tubes coming down from the ceiling over its open top. "And that looks like a water purifier."
[19:44] * M4A1 puts on her best "astonished" expression. "How could it happen?! How could it happen?!"
[19:45] <M4A1> Someone grew these plants that once bloomed out in the open?
[19:46] <AR-15> It's a long story. It would take too long to go over it. I'll tell you one thing...
[19:46] * AR-15 goes over to the water purifier and splashes her hand inside it. "No one's going to get thirsty!" :D
[19:47] *** Back in the control room, G11 is getting REALLY frustrated with the console, which is just beeping, honking, and making fart sounds at her.
[19:48] <G11> I don't know what kind of game this is. Either this thing has gone haywire or it's the weirdest machine I ever saw.
[19:48] <HK416> This isn't a video game. It's a computer.
[19:49] <G11> Dammit...I never get to find a real game! Stupid machine needs a kick in the balls!
[19:49] * G11 KICKS the console!
[19:52] *** The CRT monitors blink on and start showing all kinds of data that don't really make ANY sense.
[19:52] <UMP-45> Now what's happening?
[19:53] <HK416> Maybe G11 provoked a short-circuit? It seems to have gone mad.
[19:53] <HK416> Unless...G11 involuntarily asked it a question
[19:53] <UMP-45> Well I don't like this at all.
[19:54] <G11> If I asked it a question by mistake, how the hell are we ever going to find out what I asked it?
[19:55] *** On the screen, the words "Total elimination group" is spelled out.
[19:55] <UMP-9> What's that say?
[19:55] <UMP-45> Total elimination of the group?
[19:56] <UMP-45> What does that mean?
[19:56] <HK416> It means......
[19:56] <HK416> ....
[19:56] <HK416> ...........
[19:56] <HK416> .............................
[19:57] <HK416> The bodies!
[19:57] <HK416> The bodies that we found! It was meant for them!
[19:57] * M4A1 suddenly rushes into the control room, panting and gasping!
[19:58] <M4A1> :D
[19:59] <M4A1> Here! In the cellar! We found strange and wonderful THINGS!!! :D
[20:00] *** The scene switches downstairs to the greenhouse room. Everyone is exploring around.
[20:00] * RO-635 is examining all of the plants.
[20:01] <RO-635> The ones who came here before us had discovered a way of artificially reproducing the things that once grew on the surface naturally.
[20:02] <RO-635> plants typically smoked...virtually every type of plant. And here...
[20:02] * RO-635 moves over to the water purifier.
[20:03] <RO-635> This machine distills and decontaminates rainwater.
[20:03] * RO-635 turns on the machine, and UMP-9 quickly starts gulping down lots and LOTS of the water.
[20:03] <UMP-9> What a delicious taste!
[20:04] <UMP-9> Not at all like that slime we've been forced to drink!
[20:04] <RO-635> Its incredible how anyone could do all this!
[20:05] <UMP-45> They certainly got themselves all organized. But with all their knowledge, they got themselves killed so easily.
[20:06] *** Scene switch - now everyone is outside in the street. They've carried out several bodies (presumably including Beak and Ouroboros) and stacked them all in the middle of the road.
[20:07] *** The music is slow and moody as UMP-45 activates a flamethrower.
[20:07] <UMP-45> Everybody stand back!
[20:07] * UMP-45 TORCHES the "bodies". There are DEFINITELY more than just two. Try six or so.
[20:08] *** And DAMN not only to they light up fast, they are smoking and crackling like you wouldn't believe.
[20:09] *** The Camera does a slow pan of EVERYONE in the Griffin Gang
[20:14] *** The scene changes again. This time it's still outside, but the fires have long since burned out.
[20:14] *** The streets are now TEEMING with "Wasteland Kits"!! They're all crowding around and climbing all over the Griffin Gang's vehicles!
[20:16] *** Back inside, the Griffin Gang are all lying in the cots and sleeping...or at least TRYING to sleep what will all the MOANING that's going on.
[20:17] * slowly and deliberately stares over at...
[20:18] * SPAS-12 is sitting on the floor by the supply crates, carefully devouring a package of chocolate chip cookies one by one, and apparently getting progressively more and more AROUSED with each one.
[20:22] *** Back outside, the "Wasteland Kits" still frolick and dash around, with the camera finally settling on ONE Kit that's larger than the others. And according to the ominous music, THIS Kit is someone important!
[20:22] *** Chibi-Nat (fox form) has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:22] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Nat (fox form)
[20:22] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[20:24] * ~ Back inside, AR-15 has just about had enough of SPAS-12's antics!
[20:25] * SPAS-12 is gasping and panting!! :D
[20:25] <AR-15> COME ON, SPAS!!!
[20:26] <AR-15> Having to listen to you hump-suming those cookies is pretty nasty!
[20:26] <AR-15> If you must PLEASURE yourself with food, do it outside!
[20:27] <SPAS-12> Why don't you just shut up?! I was just getting ready to blast off!
[20:28] * AR-15 throws a boot at SPAS-12's head. "Now I'm going to count to three. If you don't quit, I'm coming down there and DRAGGING you apart from that bag!"
[20:29] <UMP-45> Cut it out! AR-15 is right. If you want to blow your mind, SPAS-12, do it outside.
[20:30] * SPAS-12 POUTS.
[20:31] <SPAS-12> Fine. You win. I'll go outside.
[20:31] * SPAS-12 gets up and storms out of the room, pouting epically.
[20:32] *** Meanwhile, downstairs in the greenhouse room, RO-635 is inspecting the plants and helping herself to a small apple. As she moves away from the plant, she's unaware of small eyes staring at her intently.
[20:32] <Wasteland Kit> O__O
[20:33] * RO-635 hears a strange grinding noise.
[20:34] * RO-635 notices that it's coming from the water purifier. It sounds like metal shifting and clattering.
[20:35] * RO-635 inspects the purifier.
[20:35] * RO-635 shrugs and starts eating that apple.
[20:37] *** Meanwhile, back upstairs at the bar, SPAS-12 is idly sulking and exploring around the bar. She sees the various dusty bottles that are there and starts inspecting them, all the while unaware that someone ELSE is watching her!
[20:37] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[20:37] * SPAS-12 goes through the bottles one by one, dropping empty ones to the floor, but eventually finding ONE that's UNOPENED!
[20:38] * SPAS-12 takes a sip and coughs! "Hey! What an incredible drink!"
[20:39] *** Back at the greenhouse, RO-635 is actually tending the plants. She stops as she hears something behind her...
[20:39] <RO-635> Hmmm?
[20:39] * RO-635 looks over.
[20:39] <RO-635> :O
[20:41] *** "Wasteland Kits" are climbing down INSIDE the water purifier's pipes!! They're dropping down and splashing into the water, where they paddle around and splash each other for a little bit before clambering out and shaking themselves dry!
[20:42] <RO-635> ....
[20:42] <RO-635> ........
[20:43] * RO-635 rushes over and starts grabbing at the Kits, sweeping and throwing them out of the water! "Get out! Get out, you'll make us sick!"
[20:44] * Wasteland Kits start yipping and growling indignantly!
[20:44] <Wasteland Kits> >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
[20:45] *** One of them LAUNCHES itself at RO-635 and LATCHES onto the side of her neck!
[20:46] * RO-635 flails as more Wasteland Kits leap at her! Then several DOZEN start falling down onto her from ABOVE!!!!!
[20:46] * RO-635 is flailing and screaming as she's BURIED beneath the Wasteland Kits!!!
[20:47] *** Back upstairs, SPAS-12 is outside the building and steadily drinking the contents of that bottle...and clearly making herself DRUNK.
[20:47] <SPAS-12> ^___^
[20:48] <SPAS-12> Hey, what's that? Looks like a phone!
[20:48] * SPAS-12 walks over to the remains of a phone booth.
[20:48] <SPAS-12> Ding a ling!
[20:49] * SPAS-12 picks up the receiver. "Hello? Hello? HELLO! SPEAK! ANYBODY THERE?"
[20:49] *** Across the street, the Wasteland Kits continue to swarm all over the place!
[20:50] <SPAS-12> Well hello there? Having a get-together?
[20:50] * SPAS-12 staggers around. "Can I join the party?" :D
[20:50] <SPAS-12> Looks like it might be fun! Let's have some music!
[20:50] * SPAS-12 trips over the curb and falls flat onto her butt.
[20:52] * SPAS-12 struggles to her feet. "On second thought, if you're the only guests...then I don't wanna an invite. Count me out!"
[20:52] * SPAS-12 staggers off quickly.
[20:54] *** Meanwhile, in a DIFFERENT part of the building, M4A1 is asleep on the floor in her sleeping bag, completely unaware that beady little eyes are watching her with great intent. She looks SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO helpless too.
[20:54] <Wasteland Kits> >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3
[20:55] *** Back outside with SPAS-12, she's paused to take a big long gulp from the bottle, then loses her balance.
[20:55] * SPAS-12 drops the bottle and watches it fall into an open service tunnel entrance that she's CONVENIENTLY standing right at the edge of!
[20:56] <SPAS-12> S[BLEEP]T! Damn bottle!
[20:56] <SPAS-12> Chocolate vodka, you think you can get away from me, do you?
[20:57] <SPAS-12> We're lover, baby! You're coming back to your SPAS, darling!
[20:57] * SPAS-12 lays down at the edge and starts drunkenly groping around, but quickly loses her balance and almost FALLS inside head-first!
[20:58] * SPAS-12 stops herself from falling by grabbing onto the rung of a nearby ladder built into the wall.
[20:58] <SPAS-12> :D
[20:59] *** Suddenly something small and fluffy leaps into the open manhole and CLAMPS onto SPAS-12's cleavage!
[20:59] <SPAS-12> Hey!
[20:59] * SPAS-12 looks down to see...a WASTELAND KIT!
[20:59] <SPAS-12> That tickles!
[21:00] <SPAS-12> Come to invite me to the party?
[21:00] *** Suddenly several MORE Wasteland Kits plop down onto her. Then more!
[21:01] *** Then a SWARM of Kits pours down onto her and SPAS-12 starts screaming and flailing, losing her grip on the ladder and falling!!!
[18:04] *** AND WE ARE BACK!
[18:04] *** 3
[18:04] *** 2
[18:04] *** 1
[18:04] <~> MOVIE SIGN!!!!
[18:05] *** SCENE - M4A1 lying asleep in her sleeping bag, which is partially open and revealing that the slim, black-haired T-Doll is NUDE!! Obviously someone made a nod to fanservice here.
[18:06] * M4A1 is unaware and happily asleep as several Wasteland Kits creep towards her and the opening in her sleeping bag.
[18:07] <Wasteland Kits> >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3
[18:09] * M4A1 suddenly sits upright as she hears RO-635 shrieking in the distance!!!
[18:09] <M4A1> O__O
[18:09] * Wasteland Kits quickly gallop off before M4A1 can notice them!
[18:09] *** In the room with the cots, everyone else hears RO-635 screaming too!
[18:10] * UMP-45 stands in the middle of the room, looking around with everyone else.
[18:10] <UMP-45> Something's wrong!
[18:11] <UMP-9> It's RO-635! Something could have happened to her!
[18:11] <UMP-45> Grab this, AR-15
[18:12] * UMP-45 tosses AR-15 the weird, multibarreled shotgun-thing and they ALL rush out of the room.
[18:13] *** Dramatic synth-keyboard music plays as the Griffin Gang rushes from room to room, engaging in a rather furtive and over-rushed search that should make any experienced adventurer or fighter shake their heads in disapproval.
[18:15] * M4A1 rushes up.
[18:15] <M4A1> Did you all hear the same scream?
[18:16] <HK416> Yes. And we can't find SPAS-12 anywhere either.
[18:16] <UMP-45> They must have attacked each other. One of them must have murdered the other.
[18:18] * ~ Suddenly, everyone looks up and over as someone stumbles through the doorway.
[18:19] * HK416 shines her flashlight onto the figure. IT'S RO-635!!!!
[18:20] * RO-635 has several Wasteland Kits climbing all over her face and shoulders (and YES, one clamped onto her scalp). Her face...her face!!!
[18:21] * RO-635 has suffered a TERRIBLE ACCIDENT while eating a jelly doughnut!! It looks like it EXPLODED in her mouth with all the force of a frag grenade, covering the exposed skin with deep red semi-solid gel (which the Kits are happily nibbling at).
[18:22] <UMP-45> O___O
[18:22] <UMP-9> D:
[18:22] <G11> o___O
[18:23] * UMP-45 raises the flamethrower and BLASTS RO-635 twice with it!
[18:24] * RO-635 starts flailing around as she catches on fire!! Wait...THAT'S FUJIWARA NO MOKOU DRESSED UP AS RO-635 AND ACTING AS HER STUNT DOUBLE!
[18:26] * "RO-635" turns around and staggers away, still covered in flames.
[18:26] *** Closeup of the flamethrower as it fires again.
[18:27] * "RO-635" stumbles through the barroom with her arms flailing around, still engulfed in flames.
[18:29] * "RO-635" just KEEPS wandering through the barroom at a rather leisurely pace, yelling and crying out as the flames keep burning. She seems rather unpanicked by the whole situation!
[18:29] * UMP-45 rushes after her!
[18:31] * "RO-635" finally crashes through one of the windows and tumbles through it onto the sidewalk outside the building, flailing and bouncing around.
[18:31] * UMP-45 leads the Griffin Gang outside!
[18:31] <UMP-45> Get after her!
[18:32] <UMP-45> Finish her off, AR-15!!
[18:33] * AR-15 takes aim with the multi-shotgun at the flaming T-Doll-shaped bundle on the ground and fires a barrage of shots at it, sending flaming bits flying in all directions!
[18:33] <Sopmod-2> AhhhhhhhH!!1 No! No!
[18:33] * Sopmod-2 starts screaming like crazy,
[18:34] <Sopmod-2> They'll eat us alive! They'll kill us all!! Kill all of uuuuuuussssssssssssss~!!
[18:35] * Sopmod-2 breaks down into hysterical wailing. Apparently she's trying to completely outdo Jamie Lee Curtis (the Scream Queen) herself!
[18:36] <UMP-9> Stop it, Sopmod! Get a hold of yourself!
[18:37] * WA-2000 and G11 start looking around the area nervously, hearing the distant sounds of pattering paws and faint gekkering of Wasteland Kits!
[18:37] <G11> Hey, what happened to SPAS-12?
[18:38] <UMP-45> We'd better go and look!
[18:38] *** The Griffin Gang rushes offscreen, leaving the camera to center in on the still-flaming and mangled remains of RO-635
[18:40] *** Scene switch - everyone's back inside and going downstairs to the greenhouse room.
[18:41] * UMP-45 looks around at the knocked over plants and devoured apple on the floor.
[18:41] <UMP-45> This must have been the place were RO-635 was attacked.
[18:42] <UMP-9> Yeah. Let's get out of here. The idea of being killed like really frightens me.
[18:43] *** The Griffin Gang retreats back upstairs, and the camera pans over to reveal...WASTELAND KITS LURKING WITHIN THE PLANTS! And they're eating all the strawberries too!
[18:43] * UMP-45 and the Griffin Gang are now outside the door that leads into the computer room (wow, what a jump-cut).
[18:44] <UMP-45> There's something moving around inside there. It might be SPAS-12. HK416, G11, cover me.
[18:45] * UMP-45 slams the door shut!
[18:46] <UMP-45> IT'S FILLED WITH FOXES! Get going!!
[18:47] *** The Griffin Gang runs for it! They dash through the dimly lit hallways of the building and rush down that short staircase into the Parlor. Sopmod-2 trips, falls down, and starts wailing like the Terrified Girl in any horror movie.
[18:49] <Sopmod-2> Nooooooooo! I don't wanna die! I don't wanna die! Don't let them eat me! Don't let them have me!!
[18:49] * Sopmod-2 moves into a corner, backs herself into it, and proceeds to engage in a full-throttle Sailor Moon wail while kicking and flailing her arms around.
[18:51] * UMP-45 moves into the center of the shot.
[18:51] <UMP-45> SPAS-12's got to be somewhere around here.
[18:51] <UMP-45> There's no way for her to get out!
[18:52] <UMP-45> Well, let's get out of here.
[18:52] * UMP-45 leads the Griffin Gang back outside to the vehicles.
[18:53] * UMP-45 and the others reach the street and start looking around, then suddenly HK416 rushes up!
[18:53] <HK416> Wait! I found her!
[18:53] * HK416 rushes up to UMP-45 and just...stands there next to her? For a full ten seconds.
[18:56] *** The scene switches to show the Griffin Gang standing around the open manhole, looking down into the service tunnel where SPAS-12 is lying at the bottom of.
[18:57] * SPAS-12 is face-down with her body contorted weirdly and that bottle of chocolate-vodka emptied all over her back.
[18:57] * SPAS-12 is also surrounded by a few Wasteland Kits that are nibbling on her fingers. and tugging on her twintails.
[18:58] <UMP-9> Oh god! She's been torn to bits!
[18:58] <G11> I don't believe it. I've never seen anyone die so horribly!
[19:00] * UMP-45 shoots the flamethrower down into the service tunnel, immolating SPAS-12 and the Stunt-plushies™ around her
[19:01] *** Insert dramatic music as the camera focuses in more on the flaming remains.
[19:01] * AR-15 rushes up!
[19:01] <AR-15> Hey! We're stuck here! The foxes have chewed through the tires of our bikes!
[19:02] * UMP-45 just stands there for a few seconds while everyone else rushes off with AR-15. UMP-45 REALLY looks embittered and pissed off now.
[19:03] *** The scene switches to show the Griffin Gang's motorcycles and vehicles parked all together. The tires of the motorcycles are all flat now!
[19:04] <M4A1> Oh no!
[19:04] <AR-15> They've been chewed to bits! We'll never be able to repair them.
[19:04] * UMP-45 rushes up, takes a moment to survey the damage, then PUNCHES AR-15 in the face!
[19:05] <UMP-45> You were supposed to be guarding them!!!!
[19:05] <G11> It's not her fault!
[19:06] <G11> Keep your cool! It's nobody's fault! If we fight amongst ourselves, we're finished!
[19:06] * AR-15 pushes G11 aside and takes a swing at UMP-45
[19:07] * UMP-45 blocks the punch and glares at AR-15
[19:07] <UMP-45> Okay...I was wrong, I admit it.
[19:07] <AR-15> With our wheels gone, how can we get out of here?
[19:09] <WA-2000> We're all condemned to death now, huh big boss?
[19:09] <UMP-45> What are you getting at?
[19:10] <WA-2000> I mean the person we all call our infallible leader should have made sure our bikes were safe before anything else. I don't know what you've got in your head.
[19:11] <WA-2000> Those bikes were our only means of escape and we're trapped without them. But instead of checking our priorities you started to panic and started to pin the blame on anyone else but yourself.
[19:12] <UMP-45> We're all in this together and the best thing right now is to get in there.
[19:12] * UMP-45 points back at the building.
[19:12] <UMP-45> We'll decide what to do tomorrow. Come on, let's go.
[19:13] <WA-2000> Oh yeah, one more of your ideas. The reason those foxes have put our motorcycles out of action is because they've decided to trap and kill us!
[19:15] <UMP-45> They're not human beings, they're just FOXES! They don't have intelligence! RO-635 and SPAS-12 went off alone. That's why they're DEAD.
[19:15] <UMP-45> No other reason!
[19:16] <UMP-45> We're going to stick together INSIDE!
[19:16] * WA-2000 takes a step back and aims her rifle at UMP-45. "I have no intention of getting myself killed because of you."
[19:18] <WA-2000> The law of our tribe is that then the leader makes a mistake, she's eliminated. And her place is taken over by someone who can lead and protect them too.
[19:18] <WA-2000> I do that better than you. >:D
[19:19] <WA-2000> Are the rest of you with me?
[19:19] * WA-2000 looks around at the rest of the Griffin Gang, who don't seem all that impressed with her.
[19:20] <UMP-45> All right. I know what you want. You're angling for a duel.
[19:20] * UMP-45 aims her flamethrower at WA-2000.
[19:20] * UMP-9 comes between them. "What's the matter with you? Have you both gone mad?"
[19:21] <UMP-9> Listen to reason, 45, and you too, WA.
[19:21] <UMP-9> We're surrounded by Foxes preparing to attack us. We must stick together at all costs! That's all we have!
[19:22] <UMP-9> It's so damn stupid! All you can think about is your wounded pride! T__T
[19:22] * UMP-45 pushes UMP-9 aside and keeps facing off against WA-2000.
[19:22] <UMP-45> Right! Let's see if you've got what it takes to lead the pack!
[19:23] * WA-2000 looks back and forth as the rest of the Griffin Gang backs away from them both.
[19:24] * WA-2000 slooooooooooooooowly lowers her rifle.
[19:24] <WA-2000> ....
[19:24] <WA-2000> Okay, that's enough. You've proved your point.
[19:25] <UMP-45> Well, now we need to search for materials. Barricade the doors and windows. Above all we need hammers and strong nails.
[19:26] *** The next scene is back in the barroom, where G11 and HK416 are bashing and hacking away on a few boxes, trying to separate them. They REALLY don't seem to know what they're doing all that well.
[19:27] * G11 is just hacking directly onto the plants with a hatchet, while HK416 is just banging away with a hammer.
[19:27] * UMP-9 keeps a lookout.
[19:27] <UMP-9> I'm really getting scare. Find more planks.
[19:28] * M4A1 gathers up some other wood off the floor and hands them to Sopmod-2
[19:28] <M4A1> Here, take there.
[19:28] <Sopmod-2> :D
[19:28] * Sopmod-2 happily takes them and wanders off, looking around and humming to herself.
[19:29] * Sopmod-2 looks down and sees a spider crawling on one of the plants she's holding.
[19:29] <Sopmod-2> ...
[19:29] <Sopmod-2> .....
[19:29] <Sopmod-2> ......
[19:30] * UMP-45 rushes over.
[19:31] <UMP-45> Stop it! Sopmod-2! It's just a spider!
[19:31] * Sopmod-2 keeps screaming and standing there. Waaaaaaiiit, SOPMOD-2's ENJOYING THIS! She's padding this out for all it's worth!
[19:33] * UMP-45 SLAPS Sopmod-2!
[19:33] <G11> What's wrong?
[19:34] <WA-2000> It's just Sopmod-2's usual hysterics. You know her and our leader. Every time they get together, they have a screaming match. It's no concern of ours.
[19:35] <WA-2000> I'm going to stand guard. I think it's SAFER. You can do as you like.
[19:35] * WA-2000 wanders away, leaving G11 to hammer away with her hatchet like a drunken monkey.
[19:36] *** The scene switches several times to show various windows and angles of the building everyone is in, with multiple sounds of hammering and sawing overlapped, representing construction.
[19:37] *** Finally it shows the Griffin Gang standing around inside the cot room. SUDDENLY, there's a loud thud in the ceiling above them and EVERYONE is startled! There's their cue!!
[19:38] <Sopmod-2> AAaaaaaahhh! It's them, they've come to get us!
[19:38] <Sopmod-2> They'll kill us now and then eat us!
[19:38] * M4A1 looking at the ceiling and backing up towards a window.
[19:38] * UMP-9 is looking around too.
[19:39] <UMP-9> 45! The window! We forgot to barricade that window!!
[19:39] * M4A1 turns around to look at the window behind her, then....!!!
[19:40] *** Dozens of Wasteland Kits start POURING through the open window onto M4A1's head and shoulders!!!
[19:40] * Sopmod-2 just stays off to the side and just SCREEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMS!!!!
[19:42] * else just rushes over to try and help M4A1 as she flails around with a bunch of Wasteland Kits clinging to her head and hair.
[19:42] * G11 is hammering a sheet of wood over the window!!
[19:43] * WA-2000 takes her rifle and starts firing shot after shot after shot through the window. Yes, the one that G11 just BARRICADED, punching a BUNCH of holes through it.
[19:44] * M4A1 is carried over to one of the cots and put down on it.
[19:45] <UMP-9> I need some water. I need to wash her wounds before they become infected.
[19:45] <AR-15> ...OH S[BLEEP]T!! I forgot to bring any water in here!
[19:46] <UMP-45> We'll have to make do without it.
[19:46] <Sopmod-2> How can we survive without water?
[19:47] <UMP-45> Once the sun comes up, we'll try to make it out of here. It won't be long. We don't need to worry.
[19:48] <UMP-9> We don't need to, but what about M4A1? She could get sick!
[19:48] * UMP-45 thinks for a little bit.
[19:49] <UMP-45> G11, you stay here. We'll try to get down into the cellar where the water is. Come on.
[19:49] * UMP-45 , HK416, and AR-15 start going, but WA-2000 grabs UMP-45s jacket.
[19:50] <WA-2000> No! I stay right here, boss. I'm not risking my life for one of your hair-brained schemes, you got that?
[19:50] <WA-2000> You can get the water on your own.
[19:50] <UMP-45> Fine, you can stay here. G11 can come with us.
[19:51] <WA-2000> Don't be such a bunch of idiots.
[19:51] <WA-2000> It was her idea for us to barricade ourselves in here. Let her dig herself out alone.
[19:52] <G11> We're not thinking of ourselves. We're thinking of M4!.
[19:52] * UMP-45 grabs WA-2000 and yanks her forward.
[19:52] <UMP-45> Listen here, you b[BLEEP]ch!
[19:53] <UMP-45> Everything you do is calculated to make me mad that you're succeeding. Now do as you're told!!
[19:53] * UMP-45 shoves WA-2000 aside!
[19:54] * UMP-45 , HK416, AR-15, and G11 leave the room and rush out into the hallway, pausing to crouch down in front of the camera!
[19:55] <HK416> The way seems clear
[19:55] <UMP-45> Come on, let's go!
[19:56] *** Everyone rushes down into the greenhouse room and start looking around.
[19:56] <UMP-45> Hurry, fill the bottle, AR-15!
[19:56] * AR-15 rushes over to the water purifier to find....WASTELAND KITS HAPPILY SWIMMING AROUND INSIDE IT!
[19:57] <Wasteland Kits> :D :D ^___^ :D
[19:57] <AR-15> 45! The tank's full of foxes! The water's polluted!
[19:58] * HK416 points at the stairs. "LOOK! The stairs are covers with Kits!"
[19:59] *** Everyone looks over at the stairs to see...dozens of Wasteland Kits curled up and sniffing around behind and on the wooden steps.
[20:00] <UMP-45> S[BLEEP]T! Look...they're waiting for us!
[20:00] * UMP-45 takes aim with the flamethrower. "I'm going to toast their tails!"
[20:01] * UMP-45 pulls the trigger, but all that shoots out of the nozzle is a big gout of Silly-Stream.
[20:01] *** The Wasteland Kits are COMPLETELY unaffected.
[20:02] <UMP-45> What the hell's the matter with this?! It doesn't work anymore! S[BLEEP]T! SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!
[20:04] *** Everyone hears clattering behind them, coming from the water purifier. More Wasteland Kits are climbing down the pipes!
[20:04] <G11> Think of something, 45! They've got us in a trap!
[20:04] *** Suspenseful synth-music starts playing!
[20:05] * UMP-45 takes off the flamethrower. "AR-15, give me your club!'
[20:06] * UMP-45 starts making a torch while AR-15 and G11 start swatting at the Kits with long lengths of cloth.
[20:06] <G11> There are millions of them! I've never seen so many before!
[20:07] * HK416 has an expression on her face that's supposed to LOOK terrified.
[20:08] * UMP-45 lights the torch and brandishes it in front of her! "Come on! COME ON!! Follow me in single file! Stick together!"
[20:09] *** The Wasteland Kits allow the Griffin Gang to start going up the stairs.
[20:09] <UMP-45> The fire keeps them at bay.
[20:09] <HK416> They're repulsive!
[20:10] <Wasteland Kit> We no be repulsive! >:(
[20:11] <HK416> Just think of the diseases they can give you! Hepatitis. Meningitis. Leftisclerocis. Plague! Tuberculosis!
