welcome to #suburbansenshi3

[20:12] <HK416> Just think of the diseases they can give you! Hepatitis. Meningitis. Leftisclerocis. Plague! Tuberculosis!
[20:12] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:[
[20:13] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) LEAPS onto AR-15 at the very back and CLINGS to the front of her jacket, growling!
[20:13] * AR-15 screams and flails!
[20:13] <UMP-45> Watch out! AR-15! Don't fall down!!
[20:14] * Wasteland Kits start to SWARM onto AR-15, quickly burying her beneath several dozen fuzzy, frizzy grey bodies!!!!
[20:15] <AR-15> Ahhhhh! Ahhhhhh! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!
[20:15] <UMP-45> Get out of the way! Someone help her!
[20:16] * HK416 and G11 drag UMP-45 away from the area as more and more Wasteland Kits pile onto AR-15.
[20:16] *** Oh the horror! THE HORROR!
[20:16] * HK416 leads the way as the three of them rush back up to the cot room.
[20:16] <G11> Quick! Open the door!
[20:17] * UMP-45 lags behind a little as she watches the passage they just came through.
[20:17] * G11 and HK416 start banging on the door. "Come on, WA-2000! Open up!"
[20:18] <UMP-45> Beat it harder!
[20:18] <HK416> WA-2000! Open up!
[20:18] <HK416> Come on! Open this door! They'll soon be on us!
[20:19] *** On the other side, WA-2000 smiles smugly since she barricaded the door and locked it.
[20:19] <UMP-9> Let them in! Without that water we don't have a chance!
[20:20] *** Back outside, UMP-45 tries kicking the door, then all three of them spin around and put their backs to the door as they peer back down the hall.
[20:20] *** A loud pattering and scurrying sound can be heard, and it's getting louder!
[20:21] <UMP-45> The B[BLEEP]CH! We'll be eaten by KITS!!!!!!
[20:21] <WA-2000> Was it worth it, 45? Did you get the water?
[20:22] <UMP-45> The Foxes got there first. They're heading this way! Open the door!
[20:22] <WA-2000> Did you hear that, 9? They didn't get it. Not a drop of it. It was a failure.
[20:23] <UMP-45> It's not too late yet! Open the door! DAMN YOOOUUUUU!!!!
[20:23] *** The camera focuses down the hall to focus's...!!!!
[20:23] *** IT'S...!!!!
[20:24] *** IT'S BABY-KIT'S FIRST SWARM!!!!!!!!!! A horde of Wasteland Kits are surging towards UMP-45 and the others!
[20:24] <UMP-45> :O
[20:25] * HK416 is REALLY trying to look terrified, but this IS HK416 we're talking about here.
[20:26] * G11 just slooooooooooooowly turns to look at the incoming swarm. She doesn't look especially perturbed.
[20:26] <G11> Here they are! They're coming at us! D:
[20:27] <WA-2000> Back you go! Back to the fething FOXES!! Why should we risk getting killed?
[20:28] * UMP-9 rushes over. "I'll kill you if you don't let them in!"
[20:28] * WA-2000 aims her rifle at WA-2000. Sopmod-2, meanwhile, is off to the side looking as if she's daydreaming.
[20:29] * UMP-45 is currently swinging and swatting her torch at numerous Stunt-plushies™ ,trying to keep the Swarm at bay!
[20:30] <WA-2000> Heh! You'll find...that I'm the only one...who to lead you!
[20:31] * UMP-9 looks around, then down by Sopmod-2's feet. "SOPPO! LOOK OUT! THERE'S A BIG KIT RIGHT NEXT TO YOU!!"
[20:31] <Sopmod-2> Hmmm?
[20:31] <Sopmod-2> ....
[20:32] * Sopmod-2 recoils and falls right onto WA-2000, knocking the rifle out of her hands and the tsundere T-Doll right onto the floor!
[20:32] * UMP-9 rushes up and aims her spear at WA-2000's face.
[20:33] <UMP-9> Now you quit laughing at us, you b[BLEEP]ch! Get up NOW and open that door! Or I'll blow your guts out, do you hear me!!!?!
[20:34] *** Meanwhile, UMP-45 is engaged in EPIC COMBAT with a massive pile of Stunt-plushies™ , smacking and stabbing them with her torch! The rest of the Wasteland Kits are just hanging back, hopping around, and watching the carnage.
[20:36] *** Finally, the door opens and G11, HK416, and UMP-45 rush inside, narrowly escaping the SWARM as the Wasteland Kits surge forward. The door's slammed shut, and scratching and squeaking can be heard from the other side as the Kits try to find a way in.
[20:36] * UMP-45 snatches up WA-2000's rifle.
[20:36] <UMP-45> YOU B[BLEEP]CH!
[20:36] <WA-2000> Now take it easy, 45! I only did it to protect the others!
[20:37] <WA-2000> That's the only reason, I swear it!
[20:37] <UMP-45> If you had any brains I'd blow them out of your head, you BA[BLEEP]RD!
[20:37] <Sopmod-2> Noooooo!
[20:37] * Sopmod-2 rushes over to interpose herself between WA-2000 and UMP-45.
[20:38] <Sopmod-2> Don't kill her! Don't kill her! She didn't do anything bad!
[20:39] <Sopmod-2> She promised she'd save me from the Foxes! She said I wouldn't end up like the others. She said she'd protect me, 45! it's my fault, you see! Honestly!
[20:39] <Sopmod-2> All mine!
[20:39] <Sopmod-2> I wanted to be protected! Go on, tell her WA-2000!
[20:39] <Sopmod-2> :D
[20:40] <Sopmod-2> Oh listen to me, 45. You must! Our enemies are the Foxes! Don't kill a girl!
[20:41] * UMP-45 pushes Sopmod-2 aside and continues to glare at WA-2000.
[20:41] <UMP-45> My instinct is to pull the trigger. We can thank Sopmod-2 that I'm not going to.
[20:41] * UMP-45 starts to turn away from WA-2000.
[20:43] * UMP-45 suddenly swings the rifle like a club and SMASHES WA-2000 underneath the jaw so hard that she's lifted off the ground and sent flying off her feet. The impact shatters the rifle too.
[20:43] <WA-2000> @___@
[20:43] <UMP-45> >:{
[20:45] *** The scene switches to show various areas of the building, which are now TEEMING with Wasteland Kits. And directing them all, leading them on a Fluffy Crusade...
[20:45] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[17:57] * ~ The projectors start to warm up
[17:59] * ~ 3
[17:59] * ~ 2
[17:59] * ~ 1
[18:00] *** The scene picks up right where it left off, with Wasteland Kits swarming through the building, and the Kit Queen Natalia directing the ALL!!
[18:00] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[18:00] *** Meanwhile, back into the cot room, M4A1 is moaning and twitching, clearly sick. UMP-9
[18:01] *** ^ UMP-9's soothing shooshes and hand-holding isn't helping.
[18:02] <G11> I can't stand it any more. I gotta do something about AR-15. Try to find her or something!
[18:02] * G11 said this while looking half-asleep (as usual). She is NOT the "action hero" type.
[18:04] * UMP-45 is currently lounging comfortably on a cot. "There's no point in going outside. Why don't you just stay in here."
[18:05] <UMP-9> M4A1's temperature is really high, I think. Poor thing, how are we going to bring it down?
[18:06] <UMP-45> It won't be long before the dawn breaks. Maybe it'll come down soon.
[18:06] <UMP-45> Then we can leave here.
[18:07] <HK416> No, we won't. The Foxes won't let us escape that easily.
[18:07] <WA-2000> Means we have to sit tight a while.
[18:09] <WA-2000> What you need is some guts, 45. Instead of hanging around in here griping, let's go outside and come to grips with those foxes. They know we're afraid of them and they're taking advantage of us all!
[18:10] *** The ominous spooky music starts up again as the camera does a slow pan along the floor, showing a long trail of blood leading somewhere.
[18:11] *** It pans shakily over the entire bar-room, showing...not much. COME ON, AYA. DO A BETTER JOB WITH THE CAMERA!
[18:12] *** It finally comes to focus on the combat boot of a Griffin T-Doll!
[18:12] * UMP-45 , HK416, and everyone else in the Griffin Gang suddenly jump in surprise as they hear a distant but loud shout of distress and pain coming from elsewhere in the building!
[18:13] <WA-2000> That's a girl's voice!
[18:13] <Sopmod-2> Who was it?
[18:13] <UMP-9> Maybe AR-15?
[18:14] <UMP-45> I think that sounded like her as well. If it is, then we have to do everything possible to help.
[18:14] * UMP-45 starts forward, but is stopped by WA-2000
[18:15] <WA-2000> The big chief wants to use us as bait for the foxes.
[18:15] <UMP-45> One more word and you're dead, WA-2000.
[18:16] * UMP-45 , G11, and HK416 start to head out of the room, leaving Sopmod-2, WA-2000, and UMP-9 behind with M4A1
[18:16] * UMP-45 G11, and HK416 carefully open the door and shine their lights out into the hall (and yes, the Creepy Music is still playing).
[18:18] *** The hallway has lots of Wasteland Kits scampering around, mostly over all of the other bookcases and furniture lining the walls. They seem to be largely ignoring the Griffin Gang at the moment.
[18:19] <UMP-45> I'm aware how intelligent these animals are supposed to be. But surely they're not smart enough to trick US out into the open.
[18:20] <UMP-45> Okay...I'll call their bluff, and I'll do it alone.
[18:20] * G11 pauses for a moment, then takes hold of UMP-45's arm. "That'd be suicide."
[18:20] <G11> We're going to come too.
[18:21] <UMP-45> Okay, everybody out!'ve gotta come too. Later on we'll come back and get M4A1.
[18:22] <UMP-45> She'll be safer in here until it gets light.
[18:23] *** The Griffin Gang (minus M4A1) move back out into the hallway, where the Wasteland Kits continue to remain curled up and resting.
[18:23] <UMP-45> They're still ignoring us.
[18:23] <G11> I'll go first
[18:24] * G11 starts to slowly and carefully walk forward through the horde of sleepy Wasteland Kits, looking back and forth among them. Slow, suspenseful music is now playing.
[18:25] *** A few of the Wasteland Kits peer over at G11 as she gets in close, but they CLEARLY aren't interested in "attacking".
[18:26] <Wasteland Kits> :3 o__o o__o o__o :3
[18:27] *** The camera switches back and forth between anxious expressions of the other T-Dolls, and groups of Wasteland Kits curled up and resting. SO DRAMATIC!
[18:28] * G11 steps over a group of them and keeps moving.
[18:28] <Wasteland Kit> Hi Friend! Want tail-pats? :3
[18:29] <Wasteland Kit #2> Shhhhhh! No talking. We not supposed to see them.
[18:31] <Wasteland Kit #3> Hey! After movie be done, let's all get lots yum-yums at Super Fluffy Mansion and snuggle under blankets!
[18:31] * G11 finally gets past the horde of Kits!!!
[18:32] <G11> :D
[18:32] <G11> You wouldn't believe it! They haven't even nibbled my shoes! It's over, girls! The war is over! YAAAAHOOOOO~!
[18:35] *** Back in the cot-room, M4A1 is still in bed and REALLY looking bad. Her face looks like it has dried spaghetti sauce smeared all over it as she starts to slowly and awkwardly get up.
[18:36] <UMP-45> HK416, it's your turn. Don't fall asleep.
[18:36] <HK416> >__>
[18:36] <G11> <__<
[18:36] * HK416 slowly and carefully makes her way through the horde of Wasteland Kits.
[18:37] * UMP-9 follows behind HK416.
[18:37] * Sopmod-2 follows.
[18:37] * WA-2000 starts to walk forward, but is stopped by UMP-45
[18:38] <UMP-45> No. I'll tell you when it's your turn. Wait.
[18:38] <UMP-45> Say your prayers, WA-2000, and say them fast.
[18:38] <WA-2000> >:/
[18:39] * WA-2000 starts to make her way through the Kit horde. It takes her a while, but she runs into no trouble.
[18:41] * The Wasteland Kits just keep on watching and relaxing.
[18:41] <WA-2000> Now I'll have a laugh! Because this is the fall of our popular leader!
[18:42] *** Suddenly the music changes tempo!
[18:42] *** The Wasteland Kits start to chatter and trill as...
[18:42] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[18:42] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) is staring right at UMP-45.
[18:43] <Sopmod-2> Oh no! I'm scared! :D
[18:43] <UMP-45> Then get out of here! All of you! Now!
[18:44] * UMP-45 rushes her way through the horde of Kits and runs after everyone else!
[18:45] <UMP-45> Hurry, let's get through the big room!
[18:45] *** The Griffin Gang (or more exactly, Squad 404) runs ahead, while WA-2000 and Sopmod-2 lag behind.
[18:46] <Sopmod-2> What is it?
[18:46] <WA-2000> Time's come for me and you to save ourselves.
[18:48] *** The scene switches to the bar room, where Squad 404 (UMP-45, UMP-9, G11, and HK416) are wandering around and "searching". They FAIL to notice AR-15 standing by the bar until she's less than FIFTEEN feet away from them AND she moves into the camera angle.
[18:48] * WA-2000 and Sopmod-2 can be seen VERY CONSPICULOUSLY sneaking towards the main door and ducking outside.
[18:49] * AR-15 stands by the bar with her back to everyone, leaning against it.
[18:51] <UMP-45> AR-15? Is that you? What's wrong? Can't you hear me?
[18:51] <G11> ~___~
[18:51] <HK416> O__O
[18:51] * UMP-45 spins AR-15 around to face them, revealing...!!
[18:52] *** AR-15 is an absolute mess! Her face has been mangled and chewed to hell! Or at least, that's what it's SUPPOSED to look like. Looks more like a pepperoni and sausage pizza was detonated in her face.
[18:53] <UMP-45> GOD NO!! :O
[18:54] *** Wow, UMP-9 let out a scream that's actually RIVALING Sopmod-2's earlier!
[18:54] <HK416> O__O
[18:54] <G11> ~__~
[18:55] * AR-15 slowly flops over and falls to the ground, landing face down.
[18:56] * AR-15 's jacket starts to bulge and shudder. Something's swelling and press up against it from underneath, and her upper body is being pushed upwards.
[18:56] *** Squad 404 watches in HORROR!!
[18:57] * UMP-9 starts screaming some more as AR-15's jacket splits open and the muzzle of a Wasteland Kit begins to push its way out from the inside of AR-15's CHEST!!!!!
[18:58] <Chestburster Kit> ^vvvv^
[19:00] *** AR-15 suddenly EXPLODES, and a dozen or more Wasteland Kits land on Squad well as assorted leather bits, fake gore, and lots and lots of strawberry syrup.
[19:01] <HK416> D:
[19:01] <G11> ~__~
[19:01] * M4A1 suddenly comes up behind everyone and sees what's left of AR-15.
[19:01] <M4A1> :O
[19:03] *** Suddenly, there can be heard the sound of a vehicle engine being started outside.
[19:04] <UMP-45> >:[
[19:04] <UMP-45> THAT'S WA-2000!
[19:04] <UMP-45> WE HAVE TO STOP HER!!
[19:05] *** Everyone rushes over to one of the windows, only to be forced to duck to the floor when a burst of machine gun fire impacts along the window frame (and ONLY the window frame, conveniently).
[19:06] * WA-2000 and Sopmod-2 are currently in one of the previously FORGOTTEN trucks...the one that looks like an open-topped, armor-plated Mystery Machine.
[19:07] <WA-2000> Don't come a step nearer or I'll shoot you, 45! >:3
[19:08] * WA-2000 is behind the handles of a small machine gun. Oooo, and it's an M1919 too. A certain MG T-Doll must have loaned it.
[19:09] <WA-2000> You can't stop me now, I'm taking Sopmod-2 with me.
[19:09] <UMP-45> GOD DAMN YOU, B[BLEEP]CH!!
[19:10] <WA-2000> I'm not obeying your orders now!!
[19:10] * WA-2000 fires a burst, blowing up MORE of the window frame.
[19:11] * WA-2000 starts swearing LOUDLY in German as the machine gun stops firing!
[19:11] * Squad 404 sits up and take aim at WA-2000
[19:12] <UMP-45> It's all over, WA-2000. You and Sopmod-2 are to come out and join us. I will count to three.
[19:13] * WA-2000 pulls up Sopmod-2, puts her in a neckhold, and is now holding an armed GRENADE in her free hand!
[19:13] <WA-2000> If any of you care about Sopmod-2, you better just cease firing or we go sky-high!!!
[19:14] <WA-2000> We go sky-high together right now!
[19:15] <G11> I'm sure she's bluffing us.
[19:15] <UMP-45> ....
[19:15] <UMP-45> No. I'm afraid she's playing for keeps. And this time we're going to have to play along with her.
[19:16] <WA-2000> Come on! You're in no position to start bargaining!
[19:17] <WA-2000> For the last time I'm warning you! Shut the guns down or UP WE GO!!!!!
[19:18] <Wasteland Kit> >:3
[19:18] <WA-2000> D:
[19:19] * Sopmod-2 looks down...and sees that the entire interior of the "Armor Machine" is swarming with Wasteland Kits that somehow appeared out of nowhere!!!
[19:19] <Sopmod-2> ...
[19:19] <Sopmod-2> .......
[19:21] <WA-2000> REPELLENT!!!!!!!
[19:22] * WA-2000 throws the grenade down into the Wasteland Kits!!!!!
[19:24] *** A MASSIVE explosion blows the entire vehicle apart, sending burning Stunt-plushies™ and two T-Doll mannequins corkscrewing and spiraling high into the air! A secondary explosion causes the remains of the truck to flip over and disintegrate like a pinata with an M-80 in it.
[19:26] * M4A1 witnesses the carnage and retreats backwards into the all-consuming shadows, horrified by the TERROR she's seen
[19:26] * Squad 404 slowly emerge from cover. O__O O__O O___O ~___~
[19:27] <UMP-9> Poor Sopmod-2. To have such a horrible finish.
[19:28] <HK416> At least for them it IS finished. But us! What kind of a finish can WE look forward to?!
[19:29] * G11 tries to look sober and anxious, but succeeds in only looking half-awake.
[19:29] <UMP-45> M4A1? Where is she?
[19:29] <UMP-9> She was right here with us!
[19:30] <UMP-45> Quick! You all go in THAT direction! I'll go this way!
[19:30] * UMP-45 runs off through the bar room, while G11, HK416, and UMP-9 rush in the direction of the computer room
[19:31] * HK416 G11, and UMP-9 pass through the kitchen first, shining their flashlights around.
[19:31] <HK416> M4A1!! Where are you?
[19:31] <G11> Are you here?
[19:32] <UMP-9> Please don't fool around. Come out!
[19:32] <UMP-9> Don't hide, it's stupid!
[19:32] <UMP-9> ....I LOVE YOU!!!
[19:33] *** Meanwhile, Creepy Music starts up again as the camera focuses on UMP-45 in a different part of the building, and she's all alone. AND SHE'LL BE RIGHT BACK~!!!!
[19:34] * UMP-45 is in the Parlor now and hears something near her. As in right NEXT to her.
[19:34] * UMP-45 turns slowly and looks down.
[19:36] * M4A1 is on the ground, lying against the wall. She's now SATURATED with chunky marinara sauce and has DOZENS of Wasteland Kits crawling all over her, "devouring" her (or rather that tasty, yummy sauce!!!!).
[19:36] <Wasteland Kits> >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3
[19:36] <UMP-45> Oh no. No.
[19:36] <UMP-45> Not her too!
[19:36] <UMP-45> NO!
[19:37] <UMP-45> - nnnnnNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo~! -
[19:38] *** Yes. She did indeed perform a Vader scream.
[19:39] * UMP-45 starts shooting up M4A1's body over and over again with her shotgun
[19:39] * UMP-9 ,G11, and HK416 hear the shooting!
[19:40] *** Everyone rushes into the room to see UMP-45 standing off to the side, sobbing.
[19:40] <UMP-9> Did you fire your gun?
[19:40] * UMP-45 points over to what's left of M4A1 and the pile of mangled Stunt-plushies™ around her. Funny, G11 is STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO THE BODY AND DIDN'T NOTICE IT!!!!!
[19:41] <UMP-9> Noooooooooooo! Not M4A1!!!!
[19:42] <HK416> You shot her! Why?
[19:42] <HK416> Why did you shoot her?!
[19:43] * HK416 grabs UMP-45 and starts shaking her. "You could have saved her! Why didn't you save her?!?!"
[19:43] <UMP-45> She was already gone. T___T
[19:43] <UMP-45> I was shooting at the foxes. T__T
[19:45] <UMP-45> She was already dead. Only four of us left now...
[19:46] <UMP-45> We'll all wind up the same way, don't you see? They're stronger than we are!
[19:47] <UMP-9> What did it get us?
[19:47] <UMP-45> NOTHING!
[19:47] <UMP-45> It's worse than being DEAD!
[19:49] <UMP-9> You mustn't talk that way, 45. Those are such negative thoughts!
[19:49] <UMP-9> I'm not ready to die yet!
[19:49] <UMP-9> You're our leader, so lead us!
[19:49] *** Suddenly, loud banging and rattling can be heard coming from all over the place!
[19:50] * Squad 404 looks around anxiously!
[19:51] * A horde of Wasteland Kits suddenly start SWARMING out of a nearby open doorway!!!!!
[19:51] * ~ MORE start coming out of the side passages!
[19:53] * Squad 404 begins a mad-cap escape montage, running through the hallways using the "free camera" style a la "Blair Witch Project".
[19:54] * Squad 404 quickly rushes into the Computer room and shut the door behind them.
[19:55] * UMP-9 finds a weird blocky device on some kind lying on the floor. Oddly enough, they all SHOULD have noticed it earlier when they FIRST searched the place!
[19:55] <UMP-9> What's this?
[19:55] <G11> Let me see.
[19:56] <G11> Ooooo, looks like it could be a magic lantern or something!
[19:56] * G11 presses a button.
[19:56] *** Suddenly, the device turns on. It's actually one of those OLD tape recorders!
[19:57] <Voice of Ouroboros> One...two...three...testing
[19:58] <Voice of Ouroboros> I've recorded this on the twelfth day of Operation Return to Light. The time is 9:15, Federation system, and this is experimental station Delta-2.
[20:00] <Voice of Ouroboros> It's been three days since we made contact with Omega-1. They're coming to save us! But the meeting may never take place.
[20:00] <Voice of Ouroboros> As this whole mission is a failure.
[20:01] *** Insert scenes of the flaming wreckage outside, as well as Wasteland Kits swarming over and nibbling on various "slain" members of the Griffin Gang.
[20:02] <Voice of Ouroboros> The measures taken by our scientists to overcome the damage of pollution and radioactivity and prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays were correct.
[20:04] <Voice of Ouroboros> And the failure is in no way their responsibility. It began with a local breed of Canis Vulpis Vulpis, also know as the Fox.
[20:04] <Voice of Ouroboros> They populated the wilds and tunnels of this region, thriving on the insects and rats that breed and flourished here.
[20:06] <Voice of Ouroboros> They've evolved, and have proved to be a dangerous enemy! A recent mutation has sharpened their intelligence to an amazing degree.
[20:06] <Voice of Ouroboros> The trouble started when we started to discard our special protective clothing as the radiation level decreased.
[20:07] <Voice of Ouroboros> It was no longer necessary. Then the Foxes attacked, killing a surprising number of us. Feeding on our FLESH!!!
[20:08] <Voice of Ouroboros> Never before have creatures like them hunted humans. Perhaps they resented our intrusion into their world? They've taken Humanity's place on the outside here!
[20:09] *** Ouroboros sounds like she's REALLY struggling at this point.
[20:12] <Voice of Ouroboros> THE SURFACE AREA IS OVERRUN BY FOXES!!!!
[20:12] <Voice of Ouroboros> THEY KILL ANYONE NOT OF THE SAME RACE!
[20:13] <Voice of Ouroboros> THEY'RE HERE! THEY'RE SWARMING IN!!!
[20:14] * UMP-45 turns off the recorder.
[20:14] <UMP-45> >:(
[20:15] <UMP-45> So...there are people like us. STILL surviving somewhere.
[20:15] <UMP-9> It's incredible.
[20:15] * HK416 looks borderline pissed...oh wait, that's her USUAL expression.
[20:16] <HK416> They've taken over the Earth...everything that was ours...
[20:16] <G11> I don't understand. Why do they keep attacking us?
[20:17] <HK416> Because they consider it their right to take everything that was ours. We...we are now intruding on them.
[20:17] *** Suddenly, the door leading into the control room starts to rattle in its frame. Scratching and scrabbling can be heard!
[20:18] * Squad 404 regards the door with TERROR!
[20:19] <UMP-9> :O
[20:19] * HK416 looks either horrified or like she's had something really uncomfortable inserted up her ass. O_____o
[20:20] <G11> They'll break the door down!
[20:20] <UMP-9> Yes!! D:
[20:20] <UMP-45> Get ready to save yourselves.
[20:21] <UMP-45> That door won't hold out for long. Get into the closet and barricade yourselves in. I'll try to stop them!
[20:22] <G11> No! We've lost too many others.
[20:22] <UMP-45> NO! Now shut up! And do as you're told!!
[20:22] * UMP-9 and G11 retreat into a small closet with no door, so they start piling whatever they can to form a partial barricade.
[20:23] <HK416> 45...?
[20:23] <UMP-45> They're gathering to attack!
[20:23] *** The music has gone into Threat Theme, and the door continues to shake and rattle in the frame.
[20:25] *** Meanwhile, the scene (and music) switches, showing the streets outside. The sun has begun to come up, and it looks like it's rained. Out of an open manhole several people wearing yellow environment suits begin to slowly climb up and make their way through the streets.
[20:26] *** All of them are either wearing gas masks and hoods, or cloudy fishbowl-like helmets. Some of them are carrying rifles (specifically Kantrael-pattern lasguns) or...LEAF-BLOWERS?! THE HELL?!?!
[20:28] *** They start spraying smoke all over the place.
[20:29] * ~ Back with Squad 404, HK416 and UMP-45 are desperately trying to keep the door shut. They're pressing their backs against it to hold it shut, but the hinges are starting to buckle!
[20:29] * ~ Puffs of dust are coming down onto their heads, and the sound of metal twisting is occasionally heard!
[20:31] * ~ The ventilation grill above the door pops free, and several Wasteland Kits start to climb through, dropping down onto UMP-45 and HK416 to attack!!!!
[20:31] <Wasteland Kits> Yum-yum meeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaat~!!!!!!
[20:32] * UMP-9 and G11 watch helplessly!!
[20:32] <G11> ~___~
[20:33] *** The door is suddenly FORCES off its hinges and falls forward onto UMP-45 and HK416!!!!
[20:33] * Wasteland Kits start to SWARM through!!!!
[20:35] *** The camera alternates between shots of UMP-9's screaming face (yes, she is DEFINITELY trying to win the nomination of Scream Queen here), G11 looking like she's about to fall asleep AGAIN, and HK416 and UMP-45 being swarmed by Kits.
[20:36] * UMP-45 is pinned beneath the door, which now has a BUNCH of Wasteland Kits perched on top of it, sniffing at her.
[20:36] * HK416 is wrestling with several dozen Kits that are just crawling ALL OVER HER!!
[20:37] * HK416 also just lost that cap of hers to a sneaky Kit that snatched it in its jaws and dashes off with it.
[20:37] <Thief Kit> >:3
[20:37] * HK416 expires.
[20:37] <HK416> AHhhhhh! AAAAAAAAAAAHH!!! Blaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrggggg....
[20:37] <HK416> X__X
[20:38] * UMP-45 manages to push the door off of herself and tries to stagger to her feet, but is covered with clinging Kits that refuse to let go!
[20:40] * UMP-45 swooning and stumbling severely, seemingly similarly to Shatner HIMSELF, UMP-45 sinks to the floor and thrashes around for a few seconds more before falling still with an expression of exaggerated agony on her face.
[20:40] <UMP-45> @_____@
[20:40] <G11> We've gotta help her!
[20:41] *** Meanwhile, the environment-suited people are getting closer.
[20:41] * UMP-9 stares at all of the Wasteland Kits swarming into the room and howls in denial and fear at them.
[20:42] * G11 looks around and sees a small window in the wall behind her. Yup, there are a couple of Wasteland Kits OUTSIDE on the ledge, looking in through the glass.
[20:43] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) closes in on them.
[20:43] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:D
[20:44] <UMP-9> I don't wanna die like that!
[20:44] * UMP-9 takes her spear and aims it up underneath her jaw.
[20:45] <UMP-9> Kill me, G11. YOU kill me. You do it! Do it so I don't have to be eaten alive!
[20:45] <G11> ...Seriously? ~__~
[20:45] * G11 glances to the side and sees...
[20:45] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) POUNCES!!!!!!
[20:46] * G11 lashes out at the last moment and...SKEWERS THE NATALIA STUNT-PLUSHIE™!!!!!
[20:46] <G11> Die, damn you...
[20:47] *** Suddenly, the Wasteland Kits all fall over.
[20:47] <G11> Wait, they're all down. All of them.
[20:49] * G11 and UMP-9 look around incredulously. The danger has passed! Has the SWARM been defeated?!
[20:49] *** A bluish-white fog starts to creep in from the broken doorway. Both T-Dolls start to cough and choke.
[20:49] <G11> it's gas! I can't breathe! We have to get out of here.
[20:50] <UMP-9> What's happening?!
[20:50] <G11> It's the people from Omega-1! They've come! They've come to save us!
[20:51] * UMP-9 and G11 quickly push their way out of the closet and rush through the hallways that are rapidly becoming more filled with smoke.
[20:52] *** They're nearly overcome in the bar-room, but hands reach out of the clouds and guide them both ouside!
[20:53] * UMP-9 and G11 both fall to the ground, coughing and choking as they finally get away from the acrid fog. Surrounding them are a couple dozen people dressed in full-body environment suits!!!
[20:54] *** Two of them step forward and stand before UMP-9 and G11.
[20:54] <G11> Are you the ones from Omega-1? The people who live underground?
[20:55] *** One of the figures nods silently.
[20:55] <UMP-9> Whoever you are, thank you for saving us! :D
[20:55] <G11> We're so be found by friends.
[20:56] *** The two figures just...look at them. Neither one of them is saying anything.
[20:56] <G11> You are our friends? And we are the same race.
[20:56] *** One of the people nods.
[20:58] <UMP-9> Once...someone told me they read in a book that we all lived on the Earth together. That we were all family! The book was called the Bible! :D
[20:58] *** The two figures look at each other, then slowly reach up to remove their gas hoods.
[20:59] <UMP-9> And that it said that God created humans and animals together! :D
[20:59] *** The figures remove their masks to show...

[22:20] <Zagreus> ..come in
[22:22] * the girls follow him in curiously, wondering if it's going to be dark and deathy inside

[22:42] <Mneme> Then shouldn't you go see her?

[22:45] * Aoide and Melete giggle back and forth
[22:45] <Zagreus> would they welcome one such as I on lofty olympius
[22:47] * Mneme shrugs. "You took Athena's vows, didn't you? Things are different in this age."
[22:49] <Melete> Who knows? There are always possibilities.
[22:49] <Aoide> Lots of paths and what ifs and plot choices.
[22:50] <Zagreus> ...I do wish to see her once more

[13:20] *** For another day, people snoop around and watch the Weinberg, Mason and Wright firm in Akhibara.
[13:38] * Matsumi Kaze glances outside the window "..hey..Harry? people usually hang out of your office like this?"
[13:43] <Matsumi Kaze> also can you do something about the coffee here...tastes like mud

[15:48] * The people watching the other watches note this nickname down. They all stay inhumanly focused on the building.
[15:54] * The people all just wait, some of them are obvious, and clearly standing there, but stealthier people monitor them, mostly in cars with tinted windows, or looking at the building through small periscopes from windows across the street.
[15:55] <Matsumi Kaze> I was mom is bugging me to get your address..she wants to send you all the gifts she didn't send you when you were growing up..if she had known you know her.....
[15:58] * The people all watch and Listen
[16:24] *** The Weinberg, Mason, and Wright firm is still under non-stop surveillance for the rest of the day.
[16:28] * Matsumi Kaze realizes this and asks Harriet if she can stay over for the night..she doesn't feel like she wants to risk going out
[16:59] <People outside> O.O
[17:13] <People outside> O.O

[16:40] * A group of 10-20 people all observe the offices of Weinberg, Mason, and Wright today. Again, just like yesterday.

[14:34] *** There are a group of about 10 humans in various levels of stealth who all wait outside the Weinberg, Mason, and Wright law firm in the Alien Zone of Akhibara. Just like the day before, and the day before that, and the day before that.

[11:16] *** there's a loud boom as the spaceship wobbles, filled with smoke
[11:18] <??> GAH FIRE FIRE!
[11:18] *** the spaceship falls right out of the sky

[01:30] * Forest Kit looks at Athena.
[01:30] *** Athena is brown cat, with the sign of quinox on her forehead. In human form, she appears as a young woman with her long brown hair tied back in a ponytail.
Her image Song is: . She is Level 1.

[17:56] *** The movie begins to warm up and load.
[18:02] *** CUE THE MUSIC (and dim your lights as necessary).
[18:03] <Opening narration> In the Christian year 2015, the insensitivity of man finally triumphs and hundreds of atomic bombs devastate all five continents.
[18:04] <Opening narration> 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.
[18:07] <Opening narration> A century later several men, disatisfied with the system imposed on them by the new humanity, chose to revolt and live on the surface as their ancestors did. So, yet another race begins, that of the new primitives.
[18:09] <Opening narration> The two communities have no contact for a long people. The people still living below ground are sophisticated, and become moreso as time goes on. By 225 AB (After the Bomb) they have begun reaching out farther and farther into the one realm that remains yet pristine and untouched by man.
[18:10] <Opening narration> SPACE.
[18:12] <Opening narration> The residents of the great underground city of Omega-2 now range further out into deep space, embarking on what promises to be an even greater ear of adventure and discovery. But their survival on the poisoned and polluted Earth depends on a continuing supply of the miracle drug RADIC-AL-2
[18:13] <Opening narration> And RADIC-AL-2 is produced only on the distant planet of DELTA-THREE...
[18:14] *** Meanwhile, the music is slowly building. Trumpets and flutes start to build...
[18:16] <The Title Appears> Night of Terror 2: The Floof of Things to Come
[18:17] <~> Based on a film based on a book based on a short short by H. G. Wells
[18:17] <~> STARRING...!!!
[18:18] <~> Task Force Defy and other members of the G&K Mercenary Company!
[18:21] <~> Executive Producer - Reisen Udongein Inaba
[18:22] *** The opening scene of raging flames and cascading sparks ends and you all see the typical star-scape of deep space.
[18:23] *** A single ship that looks a lot like a rather ramshackle rocket of massive size is slowly coasting through the cosmos. Oh is DEFINITELY of Kerbal manufacture.
[18:23] *** And it passes through the frame. And keeps passing.
[18:24] *** 15 full seconds of passing.
[18:24] *** This thing is no Imperial Star Destroyer chasing a tiny Tantive-4.
[18:25] *** The scene switches to show the Earth in the distance. The spaceship is headed directly towards it.
[18:26] *** The scene switches AGAIN to show a blinking light on a huge display map of objects near Earth. Panning out, you all see a big control room filled with computers and monitors. Hey! There are the T-Dolls!
[18:28] *** You see P38, Sten, Skorpion, Steg-44, SKS, and a host of other T-Dolls working the controls and wandering back and forth, looking busy.
[18:29] <Narrator (Negev)> Omega-2
[18:29] <Narrator (Negev)> A thriving city of ten thousand, hidden deep beneath the Earth.
[18:30] *** The scene switches to show a rather brightly lit office, with windows showing a large honeycomb-like dome high overhead. Sitting inside the office are...
[18:31] *** Springfield has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:31] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Springfield
[18:31] *** has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:31] <@spiritflame> konbanwa
[18:31] *** ~Agent has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:31] <@spiritflame> konbanwa ~Agent
[18:32] <~Agent> I am here to inform you that your interplanetary warship is no longer necessary.
[18:33] * Springfield just smiles. "Not today, but it may become necessary tomorrow."
[18:33] <~Agent> For what purpose? To wage war with the universe?
[18:34] <Springfield> No, Senator Agent. For the defense of our Earth-city.
[18:34] *** The scene cuts back to the Kerbal spaceship on its steady approach.
[18:36] *** Then cuts again to the command center, where [url=}THIS GIRL[/url] is now the camera's focus. IMPORTANT CHARACTER IDENTIFIED.
[18:37] * AN-94 activates her radio controls
[18:38] <AN-94> Delta-Rocket 4, you are entering Omega-2 area 7-5. Please confirm docking orbit.
[18:38] *** The rocket just keeps getting closer.
[18:39] *** Meanwhile, back in Springfield's office!
[18:39] * ~Agent is standing before Springfield, looking at the seated Doll with her usual steely expression.
[18:40] <~Agent> I am attempting to do you a favor. I'm telling you what the council has already decided. The Starstreak Project is dead.
[18:42] * Springfield just gives that smile!
[18:42] <Springfield > Let's see what Lomax has to say about it.
[18:43] *** Meanwhile, BACK in the command center (wow, this thing is jumping back and forth a lot, isn't it?)
[18:43] <AN-94> Delta-Rocket 4, this is Omega Space Control. Please acknowledge.
[18:44] * AN-94 types on her blocky, rather clumsy-looking keyboard and computer equipment. YUP! THEY ARE USING 80's RETROTECH FOR THIS FILM!!!!
[18:46] <AN-94> Delta-Rocket 4, confirmation of docking orbit negative. We are overriding and beginning cobalt reverse drive in...ten seconds.
[18:47] *** The Kerbal ship keeeeeeeeeeeps getting closer. Next, we're treated to a view of INSIDE the ship, where a single person is standing at a complicated computer console, piloting the whole ship.
[18:48] *** that? IT IS!! IT'S M4A1!!! Wearing a funky, box-like rectangular helmet in her head that completely encloses it, save for a single cyclops-like camera lens up front.
[18:50] * M4A1 Pilot looks at her main display (which looks like an old-fashioned theater-TV screen) and sees "Cobalt Override" spelling out in the middle of it.
[18:51] * M4A1 Pilot presses a Big Red Button on her keyboard marked "Cancel".
[18:53] *** Meanwhile, back in the command center, AN-94 looks rather miffed as she pulls off her headset and stands up.
[18:53] * AN-94 walks over to a big black ball suspended in the middle of the room.
[18:54] <AN-94> Master computer Lomax? This is Omega Space Control. We have an emergency. The Delta-Rocket 4 cargo vessel is on crash course with us.
[18:55] *** The black globe flashes with a bunch of internal lights for a few seconds before responding.
[18:56] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - Master computer confirms crash course with Omega-2 in 12 minutes. -
[18:56] *** Yes folks, you can practically TASTE the tsundere emanating from WA-2000's tone!!
[18:58] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - Suggest full emergency procedures... -
[18:59] * AN-94 goes back over to her keyboard and starts tapping on random keys.
[19:00] *** The scene switches to a window-lined tunnel elsewhere in the city, where THIS GIRL is wandering through the halls with a satisfied smirk on her face.
[19:00] * New girl is now known as AK-12
[19:02] * AK-12 receives a call on her communicator.
[19:02] <AK-12> AK-12 here.
[19:03] <AN-94> This is Omega Space Control. We have an emergency. Please report here.
[19:03] <AK-12> Okay. On my way. ^__^
[19:04] *** Meanwhile, the Kerbal ship is getting clooooooooooser!!!
[19:05] * AK-12 walks into the command center and up to AN-94. Wow, how much time are they wasting during an emergency situation here?
[19:05] <AK-12> What's the problem, AN-94?
[19:06] <AN-94> The problem is Delta-Rocket 4, with ten metric tons of RADIC-AL-2, is on a crash course with Omega-2.
[19:06] <AK-12> Oh? When?
[19:06] <AN-94> In about eight minutes.
[19:08] * AN-94 and AK-12 walk around the whole room to another set of computer consoles (wow, computers sure were poorly designed back in the 1970sFUTURE!!
[19:09] * AN-94 looks at the two Pistol Girls seated at the consoles (P38 and USP-Compact). "Emergency division? Yellow alert. Evacuate the entire population to the lower city. Seal off access to the main dome area."
[19:10] <AK-12> Are you sure this isn't some kind of communications problem?
[19:10] <AN-94> Right now I'm not sure of anything. I just don't want to take any chances.
[19:11] *** Meanwhile, BACK in Springfield's office.
[19:12] * ~Agent is looking pompous and imperious as always. "May I remind you that the council has great influence with the master computer. They concluded their vote. Don't make me ask for your resignation."
[19:13] *** A yellow light starts blinking on the desk.
[19:13] <~Agent> Yellow alert?!
[19:13] <~Agent> The whole city is on alert!
[19:13] * ~Agent and Springfield quickly rush out of the office and head elsewhere.
[19:14] *** Back in the command center, a bunch of numbers and figures slowly print themselves on the CRT display (rather loudly too).
[19:14] <AN-94> Go to red alert!
[19:16] * MP-40 presses a button and red lights and dull sirens start sounding off. The music starts getting more dramatic as well.
[19:17] *** The Kerbal ship gets CLOSER~!
[19:18] *** The next shot shows lots of people rushing through the various hallways and passages of the city. You see plenty of T-Dolls, but also quite a few Youkai from Gensokyo!
[19:19] *** Annnnnnd at one point you see Tewi get knocked over and go sprawling across the polished floor, skidding quite a distance across the smooth surface!
[19:19] <Tewi> DX
[19:20] <PA system> This is not a drill. This is not a drill. Evacuate all surface-level facilities and proceed to the shelter level.
[19:22] * AN-94 is reading from a console while AK-12 stands in the background looking cool.
[19:22] <AN-94> Two minutes until impact.
[19:22] *** Springfield and Agent rush into the control room.
[19:23] <~Agent> Do you have this emergency under control?
[19:23] <AN-94> Working on it.
[19:23] <Springfield> Are we certain there's no one else onboard?
[19:24] <AK-12> Scans indicate only a single occupant. A robot.
[19:25] *** Meanwhile, everyone continues to sprint in a mad dash to the shelters. Reimu Hakurei is smacking people left and right with her gohei-stick to clear a path ahead of her.
[19:27] *** A few T-Dolls have taken to dressing up like school crossing guards to try and direct the traffic of people to shelters that all look like...rather posh and relaxing bars. One of which is being tended by a girl with dark hair done up in twin-tails!
[19:29] <AK-12> Come on, Lomax!
[19:30] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - What do you expect me to do? I'm an overglorified calculator. -
[19:30] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - Evacuation complete. Now you may activate. -
[19:30] * AN-94 starts typing away, activating a new system as the Kerbal ship just gets CLOSER!!!!
[19:31] <AN-94> Sensors indicate negative response. Cargo ship did not destruct.
[19:32] * ~Agent looks concerned!
[19:32] * Springfield looks concerned!
[19:33] <Steg-44> Impact! 45 seconds!
[19:33] *** The camera pans over the faces of EVERYONE in the command center, showing their collective expressions of concern and anxiousness!
[19:34] *** The Kerbal ship is now glowing as it descends through the atmosphere, and then...!!!!
[19:37] *** The next scene shows a series of explosions over a large scale-model of a city built inside a hole in the ground with the camera level with the inside. Looks like a halfway talented model-maker was helping the Kits make this shot.
[19:39] *** The glass dome shatters beneath the explosion, raining all kinds of debris down onto the city. The camera shot switches to various locations showing everyone shaking and getting tossed all over the place. Think Star Trek levels of "tossing about".
[19:40] *** In the command center, EVERYONE suddenly leans to the right and staggers in that direction, then leans hard to the left and staggers in THAT direction as the camera shakes and wobbles.
[19:43] *** The shaking stops and the lights come back on.
[19:46] * The main cast watch with concern as the camera screens show images of destruction.
[19:47] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - All repair units, begin work on repair of skydome breach. All citizens to remain in emergency underground shelters until further notice. Do not panic. I repeat, do not panic. There is no need for panic. -
[19:49] *** Meanwhile, inside one of the lounge-shelters, a group of T-Dolls and Youkai have surrounded Suika Ibiki and Mosin-Nagant as they grasp the handles of MASSIVE beer steins, grin at each other, and then start drinking!
[19:50] *** ...Yeah, the panic levels there seem to be quite high.
[19:52] <AN-94> Send search teams to damaged sectors. All debris from the cargo vessel should be sent here for examination.
[19:57] *** The scene jump-cuts outside to the damaged city, where two T-Dolls (M3 Grease Gun and TMP) are standing within a bunch of random junk and debris. It almost looks like they've had a dozen or more wrecked vehicles arranged around them, along with multiple household appliances blown up around them, and topped off with some fire and lots of smoke.
[19:58] *** M3 and TMP are also wearing rather ridiculous low-budget "hazard suits" made out of flimsy silver cloth with plastic baggies over their heads as "space helmets".'s the FUU-TURE!!!
[19:59] * M3 is gently patting some of the debris.
[19:59] * TMP is using...HOLY S[BLEEP]T! It's an actual vintage tricorder from the original series of Star Trek!!!
[20:01] <TMP> Sector 20 totally destroyed. Area should be leveled. Danger of falling debris.
[20:01] <M3> Sector 18 looks just as bad.
[20:03] <Lomax (voiced by WA-2000)> - Stand by. I have visual communication with planet Delta-3. -
[20:04] *** Agent, Springfield, AN-94, and AK-12 look up at the main viewscreen as it shows an image of some kind of tower situated on a barren field.
[20:05] *** Then ominous music plays as the image shifts to show...HOLY CRAP!! JACK PALANCE?!?!?!?! Wearing a golden jumpsuit and a purple cape??!?!
[20:10] <Jack Palance > "...This is Omus. Robutt-master of Delta-3. I would like to talk to Doctor....Springfield."
[20:11] <Springfield> Speaking. What brings you to contact us, Omus?
[20:12] <Jack Palance> Ahh... You remember me.
[20:12] * Jack Palance smiles and bows a little.
[20:13] <Springfield> Oh yes, I do remember you. Where's the outpost governor? We need to speak with her at once.
[20:14] <Jack Palance > The outpost governor?
[20:14] <Jack Palance > .............
[20:14] <Jack Palance > Oh! You mean the FORMER governor of Delta-3. I'm afraid Persica and her followers have fled the Citadel.
[20:15] <Jack Palance > I am in control now.
[20:16] <Springfield> Well in that case you know what's happened here. One of your cargo ships crashed into Omega-2.
[20:16] * (Omus) Jack Palance smiles.
[20:16] <(Omus) Jack Palance> But of course.
[20:16] <(Omus) Jack Palance> ........
[20:16] <(Omus) Jack Palance> That was my plan.
[20:17] *** The main characters look concerned (again)!
[20:18] <~Agent> Omus. This is Senator Agent.
[20:18] <~Agent> Of the Omega Council. What is it you want?
[20:18] * (Omus) Jack Palance moves back over to his control chair.
[20:19] <(Omus) Jack Palance> ...I have made giant strides in technology, Senator.
[20:20] * (Omus) Jack Palance has a couple of T-Dolls standing still behind him. Wait...THOSE ARE AR-15 AND HK416 WEARING GOOFY DINERGATE HELMETS!!
[20:21] <(Omus) Jack Palance> I can bring a new...and more efficient way of life to the Earth.
[20:21] <~Agent> That's certainly encouraging.
[20:22] <Springfield> Omus! You haven't answered the question.
[20:22] <(Omus) Jack Palance> You mean...what do I really want?
[20:22] <(Omus) Jack Palance> ....
[20:22] <(Omus) Jack Palance> Your respect, of course.
[20:23] <(Omus) Jack Palance> And your support. For my return to the Earth colony.
[20:23] <Springfield> Return? In what capacity?
[20:24] <(Omus) Jack Palance> As supreme commander Omega-2, the Earth...and all the outposts in our Solar system.
[20:24] <~Agent> Well that of course is out of the question.
[20:26] <(Omus) Jack Palance> A natural reaction, Senator. And you will be hearing much more from me. Beginning immediately...there will be no further shipments of RADIC-AL-2.
[20:26] <Springfield> This is MADNESS!
[20:27] <Springfield> You're talking more like blackmail than a man of science!
[20:28] <Springfield> Now listen to me, Omus! We will never surrender Omega-2! To you or anyone else! Even if it means war.
[20:28] * (Omus) Jack Palance looks genuinely hurt and saddened for a moment.
[20:29] <(Omus) Jack Palance> Don't talk of war, my dear Springfield. It would be disastrous. As tragic as the atomic wars that devastated the Earth-planet. Consider my proposal.
[20:30] * Springfield looks pissed. "You mean your THREAT?!"
[20:31] * (Omus) Jack Palance presses a button on his console and ends the transmission.
[20:32] *** The main characters again look concerned. AN-94 is still working the console like Uhura on Star Trek, while AK-12 is just standing off to the side (still with that little grin).
[20:35] *** Meanwhile, the screen switches to show a rather disheveled and messed-up M4A1 (still with the helmet on) sprawled out over what looks like the exploded remains of a Volkswagon Beetle.
[20:36] <M3> Omega control, this is Sector 20. We've found the pilot. It's wedged in here. It may take a while to get it out.
[20:36] <AN-94> Send it to the repair bay as soon as possible.
[20:37] * AN-94 gets up and walks to the door, passing by AK-12. "See you later. I'm going to take a look at this suicide robot."
[20:37] <Springfield> Well...we've survived one attack. We may not be so lucky the second time.
[20:39] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE TIME BEING Partly because this is a good spot, but also because I had a rather long day and I'm feeling tired enough to go to bed early.
[18:06] *** MOVIE SIGN!!!!!
[18:07] *** The movie picks up right where it left off, and starts with AN-94 working at another bulky computer console with the cargo-ship suicide robot (M4A1) sitting in a weird chair.
[18:11] *** A Pistol Girl (Tokarev) approaches holding a large computer component. "Well, you were right. There was something weird about that circuitry. THIS will turn her into a good little girl."
[18:11] <Tokarev> She WAS originally programmed to blow herself up though.
[18:12] * AN-94 takes the part and inserts it into a slot on her console. Various lights start to blink on M4A1's helmet.
[18:12] <AN-94> All right. Now bring the tapes over here!
[18:14] * Tokarev trots over to the OTHER SIDE of the room, grabs a small stack of 5"1/4 floppy disks (holy s[BLEEP]t, do those things even still exist in Current Year?!) and slide a bunch of them into a block-like disc drive.
[18:14] <AN-94> Okay, let's give her a jolt.
[18:16] *** The other T-Dolls in the room jump and cringe as the "jolt" AN-94 was talking about turns out to be a POWERFUL burst of electricity that causes M4A1's helmet to spark explosively, creating a thick plume of acrid smoke.
[18:17] <AN-94> I don't know what they called you on Delta-3...but I'm gonna call you "Sparks"!
[18:18] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - am...I am... -
[18:18] <AN-94> You're working! :D
[18:19] * M4A1 (Sparks) is stiffly and jerkily waving her arms up and down. "I am self-adjusting. New circuits...nre circuits..."
[18:19] <AN-94> Give her another jolt.
[18:21] * AN-94 grins as M4A1 gets zapped again. M4A1's helmet lets off another huge cloud of sparks and smoke (making the other Dolls in the room cough a little).
[18:22] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Thank you. You are the dark lady of my sonnets. The lily of my valley. -
[18:22] <AN-94> Well, you can call me AN-94
[18:23] <AN-94> Looks like I made a poet out of you.
[18:24] *** turns her head back and forth a little, smoke still pouring out of the vents of her helmet.
[18:26] *** Meanwhile,on the surface of the Earth, a large door set into the ground starts to open, and the nose of a MASSIVE rocket ship slowly rises up from within its launch silo.
[18:27] * Springfield walks into the engine room of that rocket (which looks like it came from the set of Star Trek). She's wearing a puffy, baggy suit of foil-cloth as she walks up to a sealed metal door.
[18:29] *** Dramatic music starts to play as Springfield picks up a baggy gas-hood like helmet with a clear visor then puts it on. She's about to go through that door! And it's clearly marked "RADIATION HAZARD."
[18:29] <Negev (announcement)> Danger. Extreme radiation hazard. Danger.
[18:31] *** Meanwhile, back in Robot Repair, AK-12 has joined AN-94 with their continued repair and experimentation on "Sparks".
[18:31] * AN-94 inserts another floppy disk into M4A1's hard drive. "Here, this should complete your history course."
[18:32] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Thank you, my dark lady of the sonnets. -
[18:33] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Now I have something to show you. I have certain talents, you know. -
[18:34] *** The camera suddenly focuses on an entirely different part of the room where no one is in it current. There's a weird buzzing sound, and SUDDENLY M4A1 IS STANDING THERE!!
[18:34] * AN-94 is surprised to find that M4A1 is no longer beside her!
[18:35] * M4A1 (Sparks) buzzes loudly again...then MAGICALLY she appears in a different part of the frame!!!
[18:36] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - How was that? -
[18:37] <AN-94> It's terrific. What do you call it?
[18:37] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Bilocational Transference. BLT for short. -
[18:38] *** Meanwhile, back on the rocket ship, Springfield is in a large metal-lined chamber with glowing floor panels. She's fiddling with controls on the wall, and a glowing cube starts to raise up from the middle of the room.
[18:41] <Negev (Announcement)> Attention. Sensors indicate fuel rods are overheating. Stability region has been surpassed. Spectrum drive fuel pile is approaching meltdown point.
[18:41] <Negev (Announcement)> Must be stabilized by a new supply of moderator.
[18:42] * Springfield is engulfed by a wave of multicolored sparks from inside the cube as...something...starts happening.
[18:43] *** Meanwhile, jump-cutting to the command center.
[18:44] <Lomax (WA-2000 voice)> - Attention. Sensors indicate unauthorized activity on the Starstreak. Determine wherabouts of all senior personnel. -
[18:45] * Springfield finally leaves the engine room, moving as if she's just finished doing something incredibly strenuous.
[18:47] <Negev (Announcement)> Danger. YOu have been exposed to extremely high radiation levels. You need treatment with RADIC-AL-2 immediately.
[18:47] * Springfield stumbles off-camera.
[18:47] *** Meanwhile, back at the command center, Senator Agent walks into the room.
[18:48] <~Agent> Have you found, Doctor Springfield yet?
[18:48] <~Agent> Or AK-12?
[18:48] <MP-40> No sign of Doctor Springfield or of AK-12.
[18:51] <~Agent> Lomax...they're up to something. You must shut down all launch support systems immediately.
[18:51] <Lomax (WA-2000 voice)> - ......I am in FULL CONTROL of the situation, Senator. Be patient. We will locate Doctor Springfield. -
[18:55] *** Meanwhile, Springfield stumbles her way onto the bridge of the Starstreak (which looks like it was designed to resemble the control room of any given starship of Star Trek in Kirk's era). She starts flipping switches and pressing buttons. Whining noises and blinking lights accompany them
[18:55] * AK-12 and AN-94 soon enter the Bridge!
[18:57] * M4A1 (Sparks) mechanically walks after them.
[18:58] <AN-94> Doctor Springfield?
[18:58] <Springfield> AN-94, what are you doing here? I'm preparing the Starstreak for takeoff.
[18:59] <AN-94> But what about Lomax's recommendation?
[18:59] <Springfield> No, the master computer is wrong. Soft words now could destroy us. I am going to stop Omus. By myself if I have to.
[19:00] <AK-12> You won't have to do it by yourself. ^__^
[19:00] <Springfield> Well, I was rather counting on getting some help along the way.
[19:00] <AN-94> I'm going too.
[19:01] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I would like to help. -
[19:01] <Springfield> ...Oh hello! Who's our new shiny friend?
[19:01] <AN-94> That's Sparks.
[19:02] <Springfield> All right..the four of us!
[19:02] <Springfield> But we have to launch immediately.
[19:02] <AK-12> Let me do a pre-flight check first.
[19:02] *** Blooping noises are heard throughout the room.
[19:03] <Springfield> Lomax has tracked us here. We've gotta go now or not at all.
[19:05] * AK-12 and AN-94 quickly get into the launch chairs and strap themselves in. Springfield heads over to the central console where M4A1 is locking herself into.
[19:06] <Springfield> Now, this is a robot console. Similar to those on cargo ships but much more sophisticated.
[19:06] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Miss Springfield, I detect a need for medication. -
[19:07] <Springfield> No. Not a word of that right now. I'm going to get into my own launch chair.
[19:07] * Springfield hurries off as the Rocket-ship is raised up more from its launch silo.
[19:08] *** Outside, you can see the wasteland surrounding the silo. And...HEY, ISN'T THAT A SMALL RUINED CITY IN THE DISTANCE? THAT PLACE SUUUUUURE LOOKS FAMILIAR!
[19:09] * AN-94 is counting down from 30 as dramatic music keeps playing. AK-12 looks at the various CRT displays with concern.
[19:10] * ~Agent is watching too.
[19:10] <~Agent> They're preparing for takeoff! Lomax, you've got to stop them!
[19:11] *** The engines ignite, and the Starstreak rocketship begins to take off on massive plumes of fire, soaring up through the sky and accelerating into the beyond.
[19:11] <~Agent> >__<
[19:12] <~Agent> Lomax...what are their chances of reaching planet Delta-3?
[19:12] <Lomax (WA-2000 voice)> - Percentages do not favor a successful journey. Disaster through malfunction predicted. -
[19:14] *** Insert inspiring music as the Starstreak achieves orbit around the Earth!
[19:15] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Leveling out. Stable orbit achieved. Calculating for gravity-well slingshot maneuver. -
[19:16] <AN-94> Calculating course for Earth's twin on the opposite side of the sun: Delta-3!
[19:17] * AN-94 , AK-12, and Springfield all look at the forward viewscreen at the Earth below and the stars before them. INSERT OBLIGATORY SPACE-SHOT!
[19:18] <Springfield> We're on our way. Out there...with the vastness of space. The unknown.
[19:19] <Springfield> Where all possibilities exist. And Man's future is limited only by his imagination. And his vision of the stars.
[19:21] <Springfield> And you, Sparks. What do you think?
[19:21] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I think this ship is much better than a Delta-3 cargo ship. -
[19:22] <Springfield> Now...I wonder what happened at Delta-3? I hope everyone's all right.
[19:23] *** JUMP-CUT TIME! We now go to the planet on the other side of the sun...Mondas DELTA-THREE!!
[19:26] *** The scene is of a box canyon where the entrance to what looks like a tunnel is located. Outside, there are a BUNCH of T-Dolls jabbing, stabbing, and prodding at each other with weird-looking medieval style futuristic weaponry.
[19:28] *** You recognize a bunch of the T-Dolls by their animal-ears and tails! TMP, IDW, G41, ART556, and P7.
[19:28] *** Overseeing all of them are Griffin's most infamous Internet S[BLEEP]t-poster, MDR annnnnnnd...!
[19:28] *** Persica has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:28] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Persica
[19:30] <MDR> I think we're ready now, Persica.
[19:30] <Persica> LISTEN EVERYBODY!
[19:31] <Persica> We must get back into the Citadel! We have to send a message out somehow!
[19:31] <MDR> We should get through the tunnels all right, but the Citadel itself is going to be another matter.
[19:32] <Persica> I think there's a way through the abandoned caverns into the power plant.
[19:32] <MDR> Okay, Dolls! Let's go! Grab your gyro-pikes and your cryo-cutlasses and be ready for anything.
[19:32] * Persica starts walking towards the mouth of the tunnel
[19:33] *** The next scene shows a slow pan of the entire Citadel tower.
[19:34] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) sits dramatically in his Chair of Command.
[19:35] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) presses a button on his console, and the viewscreen shows a few T-Dolls wearing goofy Dinergate helmets robo-stepping up to the camera.
[19:36] *** Hey! It's RO-635, HK416, G36, and Sopmod-2 as the robots! Applaud!!
[19:38] <HK416> - RoBoT mAsTeR. wE hAvE CoMpLeTeD tHe MiNiNg Of ThE RaDiC-aL-2 AnD LoAdED iT aBoArD -
[19:39] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Excellent. Everything is falling neatly into place. ^__^
[19:40] *** Meanwhile, Persica, MDR, and everyone else quickly walk up to a closed metal door set into a stone wall.
[19:41] <Persica> So far, no sign of Omus' robots.
[19:42] <MDR> You'll have to move fast.
[19:43] <Persica> I know, but I won't need much time once I get to the center.
[19:43] * MDR groans as she struggles to push the door open while everyone else looks nervously down the other tunnels.
[19:44] * Persica squeezes through the opening in the door. After ANOTHER slow-pan of the exterior of the Citadel, it goes right back into the command center.
[19:45] * Persica hurries inside to find it CONVENIENTLY EMPTY!!!!
[19:46] * Persica goes over to the communications console and starts pressing random buttons. "Calling Omega-2. Calling Omega-2. This is Persica, the governor of Delta-3."
[19:47] *** Back at Omega-2, P38 rushes back over to her own computer console and presses more noisy switches and buttons while Persica's voice is heard through the speakers.
[19:48] <Persica> We need some assistance! WE NEED SOME ASSISTANCE!!
[19:48] * Persica hears something and hides!
[19:49] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) enters the room, closely followed by RO-635 and Sopmod-2 stumble-stepping behind him.
[19:49] <Persica> >__>
[19:49] <Persica> <__<
[19:49] * Persica slips out the INSTANT they all pass her hiding spot and sneaks back down the hallway.
[19:50] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) goes back to his console and looks down at it. "What's this?"
[19:50] * Persica heads for the elevator that leads back down to the caverns. CONVENIENTLY PLACED!!!
[19:51] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> The channels are for Omega-2
[19:51] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) opens the channel.
[19:51] <P38> This is Omega-2, Persica. We hear you. Continue with your message.
[19:51] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> ...
[19:52] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Sound. General. Alarm.
[19:52] *** Weird sounding siren noises begin, and the "Robo-Dolls" begin to awkwardly stomp towards the door.
[19:53] *** WhooooooooooPP! WhoooooooooooooPP! WhoooooooooooooPP! WhooooooooooooooPP!!
[19:54] * Persica rejoins everyone down in the tunnels.
[19:55] * Persica is being chased by a Robo-Doll! IT'S SPAS-12 AND SHE LOOKS HILARIOUS IN THAT DINERGATE MASK!!!
[19:56] <Persica> I couldn't get through!
[19:56] <P7> Here they come!!
[19:57] *** Everyone looks up to see multiple Robo-Dolls stomping towards them, arms outstretched and hands flexing!
[19:57] <MDR> Ready weapons!
[19:58] * MDR and her friends ready their hand weapons as the FIGHT MUSIC begins!
[19:58] *** They start jabbing and stabbing at the Robo-Dolls, causing huge flashes of sparks and small explosions on contact! HOW GRAPHIC AND INTENSE!!
[20:02] * Micro-Uzi cries out awkwardly as a Robo-Doll, grabs her and starts pummeling her!!
[20:04] * M-14 is surrounded by several Robo-Dolls (actually AK-47, Simonov, and Type-56) and slowly and dramatically pounded into the ground.
[20:06] *** Persica's Dolls aren't idle and they manage to stab and jab several Robo-Dolls into inactivity after causing a LOT of small-scale explosions, huge spark-showers, and several small fires.
[20:09] *** With the last of the Robo-Dolls disabled, Persica's group quickly pick up M-14 and Micro-Uzi and quickly flee from the tunnels.
[20:12] *** Two more Robo-Dolls (Bren and L85A1) awkwardly stumble-step in pursuit at a pace roughly equivalent of an infant CRAWLING.
[20:14] * Persica , MDR, and everyone else retreat from the tunnels.
[20:15] <Persica> I'm not sure... :<
[20:15] <MDR> Two more deaths. What now?
[20:16] *** Meanwhile, back onboard the Starstreak, a series of alarms begins to sound off on the bridge.
[20:16] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Doctor Springfield, we have malfunctions of the gy-lectron compass. -
[20:19] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Auto-guidance unit, and the contra-flow system are also showing malfunctions. -
[20:19] <AK-12> We're going to have to make repairs, but how?
[20:20] <Springfield> We have to set down.
[20:20] <AN-94> How? We can't land and take off again!
[20:22] <Springfield> We can, in a way. The Starstreak is designed to separate. The module we're in can also serve as a landing craft. Some of the damaged systems are in this sections. We can land, shut them down, repair them safely, and take off again afterwards and redock with the rest of the ship in time to slingshot around the Earth's gravity well.
[20:23] <Springfield> Set coordinates for Sector 7-5-9. There's an emergency station built there. It's more or less abandoned, but the guidance beacon is compatible with our ship.
[20:23] <AN-94> Is anyone living there?
[20:24] <Springfield> Yes, an associate of mine. Lee-Enfield. She's a sort of guard/caretaker of the place. She's due to return back to Omega-2 in a few months, but she'll be able to help us.
[20:25] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Setting course for Sector 7-5-9 -
[20:26] *** Scene-switch - outside shot of the Starstreak as the front-most part of the ship SLOOOOOOOOWLY detaches from the rest of the ship and begins a gradual descent back DOWN to Earth.
[20:28] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Module separation confirmed. Descent locked to beacon YR-321. -
[20:29] *** The Starstreak landing module begins its dramatic glide through the clouds, resembling a roughly flattened disk-like vessel. IT'S A TOTALLY ORIGINAL VESSEL TOO...THE...CENTURY...EAGLE
[20:30] *** Down below, the land consists of arid-looking scrubland and light woods. Within those woods and hard grasses something is moving. And watching!!
[20:31] *** They watch as the ship slowly sets down near a couple of old-looking stone buildings , one of which has a radar dish and a bunch of radio transmitters on the roof.
[20:32] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Shutdown completed. I'll stay with you, Doctor Springfield, and help with repairs. -
[20:32] <AK-12> We'll see if we can't find Lee-Enfield. Maybe she can help us more.
[20:33] <Springfield> Sure. Give her my regards when you see her. Tell her she still owes me a cup of tea.
[20:33] * AK-12 and AN-94 giggle and head outside, leaving Springfield alone with M4A1
[20:36] * AK-12 and AN-94 jump-cut to outside, where they're surrounded by open woods, tall grasses, moaning winds in the distance, and hidden observers watching their every move!
[20:37] <AN-94> <__<
[20:37] <AK-12> >__>
[20:38] *** The two Dolls walk up a dirt road towards the buildings, walking past a perfectly-intact Jeep parked off in the grass.
[20:38] * AK-12 knocks on the front door of the larger one-story building before opening it. "Lee-Enfield?"
[20:39] * AN-94 and AK-12 walk inside. It's a small bungalow that looks about large enough for one person, and dimly lit by the marginal amounts of sunlight coming through the partially covered windows.
[20:40] * AN-94 examines a bank of wall switches while AK-12 looks into a nearby room.
[20:40] <AK-12> No sign of her. How's the equipment looking?
[20:40] <AN-94> Looks to be functional.
[20:41] <AN-94> I'm going to check the tower.
[20:41] <AK-12> Be careful out there.
[20:43] * AN-94 heads outside and walks down the short flight of metal steps to the ground. She then heads towards the comm tower...unaware that not only was she being watched as she came down those stairs, but small forms are carefully and silently creeping through the grass towards her!!!!
[20:43] * AK-12 continues to explore the inside of the house.
[20:43] <AK-12> I wonder if there's anything else we can use...
[20:46] *** MEANWHILE, back with AN-94, she's...wandering out into the woods? She's way back the radio tower now. WHERE THE HELL'S SHE GOING?!
[20:47] *** Back with AK-12, she's finished searching around the kitchen, then goes over to a vinyl curtain hanging along one of the walls and pushes it aside.
[20:47] <AK-12> !!!!
[20:48] * AK-12 sees that the curtain was concealing the entrance to a pantry, and lying on the floor is THIS GIRL!
[20:48] <Lee-Enfield> @_____@
[20:49] * Lee-Enfield is on her hand, with her tongue hanging out, her eyes rolled up, and her clothes disheveled. She also seems to have little coppery hairs covering her fairly thickly.
[20:53] * AK-12 stops smirking for a minute, and actually OPENS her eyes for a few seconds!
[20:54] * AK-12 runs for the door and yanks it open. "AN-94?! AN-94!!!!"
[20:54] <AK-12> AN-94!!! WHERE ARE YOU?!
[20:55] * AK-12 tries to contact AN-94 on her communicator. No response.
[20:55] <AK-12> AK-12 calling Starstreak, come in.
[20:55] <Springfield> Yes, what is it, AK-12?
[20:56] <AK-12> I found a dead Doll inside the station.
[20:56] <Springfield> ...!!!
[20:56] <Springfield> Lee-Enfield?
[20:56] <AK-12> I think so.
[20:57] <AK-12> And that's not all. I can't find AN-94.
[20:57] <Springfield> What do you mean?
[20:57] <AK-12> I don't know. She disappeared.
[20:58] * AK-12 looks over at the Jeep. "I've got a vehicle here. I don't know if I can get it running though."
[20:58] <Springfield> It's rough terrain, you'll need it. I'm going to send Sparks to help you.
[20:58] <AK-12> Okay, out.
[20:59] * Springfield goes over to M4A1 (Sparks). "Now, I want you to check radiation readings in the area. I want to know if AK-12 and AN-94 are in danger."
[21:00] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Yes, Doctor Springfield. -
[21:00] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Detecting radiation 1.5 meters in front of me. -
[21:00] * M4A1 (Sparks) points at Springfield.
[21:01] <Springfield> Now...I've never needed a maid before, and I don't intend to have one now. Now get going.
[21:01] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Precisely what I had in mind. -
[21:02] * M4A1 (Sparks) starts emitting a weird buzzing noise...THEN SHE'S GONE! SHAZAAM-SHAZAAM-SHAZAAM!!
[21:03] * AK-12 is currently getting into the Jeep as M4A1 suddenly blinks into existence a short distance away! BLT FOR THE WIN!!
[21:03] <AK-12> What took you so long? ^__^
[21:03] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I'm a little out of condition. -
[21:04] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I am picking up AN-94 west of our current location. Three kilometers. -
[21:04] <AK-12> Is she alone?
[21:04] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I can't get an exact reading, but I'm picking up a high radiation level in this area. -
[21:05] * AK-12 closes the engine hood of the Jeep. SHE FIXED THE THINK ALL BY HERSELF!!
[21:05] <AK-12> Well, get it.
[21:05] * M4A1 (Sparks) quickly hops in back, grabbing hold of the roll-bar.
[21:07] * AK-12 and M4A1 quickly drive onto the dirt road and start speeding away, unaware that there's SOMETHING ELSE riding in the back undetected by M4A1
[21:07] <Wasteland Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:10] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT since it's getting late. And it's another good point to do so
[18:04] * AK-12 and M4A1 (Sparks) both drive off down the dirt road, accelerating VERY fast. Faster than a Jeep of that model SHOULD go.
[18:05] * AK-12 grins as the STOMPS on the gas pedal, causing large plumes of blue-tinged smoke to belch out of the exhaust manifold of the vehicle.
[18:05] <M4A1 (Spark)> >__>
[18:05] * AK-12 is a RUSSIAN T-Doll!! She SPITS on the environment! ^__^
[18:06] *** The next scene shows the Jeep grinding to a halt with steam pouring out from its engine.
[18:06] <M4A1 (Spark)> <__<
[18:07] <AK-12> ^__^;
[18:07] <AK-12> I...I don't understand. I drove it so gently...
[18:09] <M4A1 (Spark)> - I detect a malfunction in the H2O containment system. -
[18:10] * AK-12 lifts the hood and frowns down at the steaming engine.
[18:11] * M4A1 (Spark) engages BLT and TELEPORTS and SHORT distance away. That she COULD have easily walked.
[18:12] <M4A1 (Spark)> - I'm picking up AN-94. All operational functions seem intact. But she isn't alone. -
[18:14] *** Meanwhile, the Wasteland Kits that hid onboard the Jeep with them hop down off the back, looking shaky and unsteady. The ride was NOT comfortable, and their fur has been swept back by the strength of the wind hitting them
[18:15] <Wasteland Kits> O___o o___O @___@ D:
[18:15] * M4A1 (Spark) and AK-12 start walking away, still unaware that they're being followed.
[18:15] <M4A1 (Spark)> - Sensors also detect higher radiation levels ahead. -
[18:17] * AK-12 keeps marching forward with "Sparks", accompanied by eerie mood music and small figures hiding in the bushes and trees around them.
[18:20] <M4A1 (Spark)> - Stop, AK-12. Let me lead the way. -
[18:21] * M4A1 (Spark) takes point as they arrive at an open field littered with all kinds of metal wreckage, a few disassembled vehicles, and smoke pots going off. Some kind of old battlefield?
[18:23] *** As they wander further into the field, small figures rise up!! AK-12 and "Sparks" are surrounded! AND THE MUSIC NOW HAS KETTLE DRUMS AND DRAMATIC FLUTES!!!!
[18:23] <M4A1 (Spark)> <__<
[18:23] <AK-12> >__<
[18:23] * AN-94 is now seen rushing across the field, yelling and waving to them!
[18:24] * AK-12 sees AN-94, rushes up to the nearest figure and SLAPS IT, sending it flying back with a high-pitched squeal!!!
[18:25] <AK-12> COME ON!! MOVE!! Let's get out of here!
[18:25] <AN-94> NO! Don't hurt them! They need our help!!!
[18:25] <AK-12> XO
[18:26] *** The figures shake themselves vigorously, throwing off the dead leaves and grasses they've been using to camouflage themselves, revealing...
[18:27] *** Wasteland Kits has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:27] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Wasteland Kits
[18:27] * AK-12 goes over to see the figure she'd attacked was ALSO a Wasteland Kit! It scrambles to its feet, relatively unhurt, but extremely angry!!!
[18:27] <Wasteland Kit> >:[
[18:29] *** Dozens of Wasteland Kits reveal themselves, all looking skinny and sickly. Some of them are missing patches of fur, revealing raw skin and rashes.
[18:30] <AN-94> Lee-Enfield was trying to help them. She was treating them with her own supplies of RADIC-AL-2 when she herself got sick.
[18:30] <AN-94> These things are sick. We have to take them away from this place.
[18:33] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Yes. These old weapons are leaking toxic substances. However, these creatures should NOT be treated with RADIC-AL-2, as it is designed for YOUR KIND to use. -
[18:33] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - The long-term effects on lower life-forms like these have not been fully documented, but it is believed that it may trigger mutations. -
[18:34] * M4A1 (Sparks) starts buzzing again.
[18:34] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I'll be going back to the ship now. -
[18:35] * M4A1 (Sparks) BLTs the HECK outta there, leaving EVERYONE ELSE in the middle of a toxic zone! THANKS SPARKS!!! Ba[BLEEP]rd
[18:38] <AN-94> Come on, little ones. Let's get you all out of here.
[18:38] <AK-12> We're bringing them back with us?
[18:39] <AN-94> Of course! At least to the radio station.
[18:39] * The Wasteland Kits all follow along. :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[18:40] *** Meanwhile, back on the ship, "Sparks" is with Springfield as she straps herself into a reclining lounge chair.
[18:41] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - We must inform AN-94 and AK-12 of your condition, Doctor Springfield. -
[18:44] <Springfield> No, they've got enough to do without worrying about me. I...I FEEL FINE! :D
[18:44] * Springfield cringes a little like she's experiencing a bad case of diarrhea.
[18:45] <Springfield> I've managed this far. I'll make it to the end.
[18:45] * M4A1 (Sparks) slowly stumble-stomps out of the room.
[18:45] *** The radio comes on.
[18:45] <AK-12> This is AK-12. Come in Starstreak.
[18:47] *** AK-12 and AN-94 continue to walk the long distance back to the ship, with the Wasteland Kits following all around them. The small group that had been with them at the wreckage site has now grown to TRIPLE its size.
[18:47] <AN-94> Just listen...
[18:48] <AK-12> We've gotta get back to the ship and back on course for Delta-3. We don't have much time before we miss our slingshot point.
[18:48] <AN-94> These little things need our help.
[18:49] <AK-12> Look...we can't go back to Omega-2. And we shouldn't take them with us because we'd be putting them in even greater danger.
[18:49] <AK-12> If we can get to Delta-3 we can pick up a supply of RADIC-AL-2 and come back here to help them.
[18:50] <AK-12> Or at least try to heal them a little. You heard what Sparks said. Using RADIC-AL-2 on them could be dangerous.
[18:50] <AN-94> :<
[18:51] <AN-94> We can't just ignore them.
[18:51] <AK-12> Bottom line - they're simple animals. They've survived this long on their own, they'll have to learn how to continue surviving on their own.
[18:52] *** The Wasteland Kits all put on sad, morose expressions and whimper a little. Anyone familiar with Kit-Speak can translate.
[18:52] <Wasteland Kit #1> Do you have water?
[18:53] <Wasteland Kit #2> Why haven't you offered us food? :<
[18:53] <Wasteland Kit #3> The other T-Doll was nice to us...
[18:55] * AK-12 goes over to them. "Listen, I know you've all had a hard time, but there's really not much more we can do to help you right now. Bringing you with us is too dangerous."
[18:55] <AN-94> We'll leave some ration packs behind for you, but that's all we can do.
[18:57] *** Meanwhile, back on the ship, the camera is focused on Springfield, still strapped into her chair and rolling back and forth, grunting and groaning...maybe she IS about to have a horrible case of diarrhea?
[18:58] * M4A1 (Sparks) is back at the robot console, and AK-12 and AN-94 are in their respective control chairs, getting the ship ready for launch.
[18:58] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Diagnostics completed. All systems now functioning normally. Repairs successful. -
[18:59] <AN-94> Okay! Let's get the loading ramp up and close the internal doors.
[18:59] *** Outside the ship, a lone Wasteland Kit is at the foot of the landing ramp...and HOWLS!!
[19:00] *** Wasteland Kits SWARM up the ramp!!!
[19:02] *** The loading ramp starts to close up, but not before a HUGE number of Wasteland Kits managed to get inside the ship
[19:03] *** The ship starts to take off, rising up into the sky and back into orbit, where it SLOOOOOOOOOOOWLY docks back with the main body of the ship.
[19:04] *** Insert docking scene.
[19:04] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Docking completed. -
[19:04] <AN-94> Course set for Delta-3.
[19:05] <AK-12> Final countdown for gravity slingshot locked in. Spectrum drive warming up and preparing to activate.
[19:08] *** Scene switch- the outside of the ship as its engines begin to glow. The ship itself is MUCH closer to the Earth than it was previously, its trajectory taking it into the planet's gravity where it will use the additional acceleration, boosted by the engines, to slingshot around and away from Earth on a new course that will take it towards Delta-3
[19:09] <AK-12> And course corrections needed, Sparks?
[19:09] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Negative. No deviation from set flight path...pathpathpathpathpathpathpathpathpath -
[19:10] * M4A1 (Sparks) starts to shudder. Oh crap, she's malfunctioning.
[19:10] * AN-94 comes over to investigate.
[19:11] <AN-94> Okay, take it easy, Sparks.
[19:12] * AN-94 starts fiddling with M4A1's helmet. "I'll make a better self-adjusting tape for you when we get back."
[19:13] * M4A1 (Sparks) suddenly JERKS as a series of small explosions and sparks shoot from her helmet!!!!
[19:13] * AN-94 GAVE M4A1 ANOTHER "JOLT"!!!
[19:15] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Thank you! -
[19:16] * Springfield comes out to join them all in the bridge.
[19:17] <Springfield> Well, the ship's performing beautifully. And I'm beginning to feel...just a little bit hungry.
[19:18] <AN-94> You look a little exhausted.
[19:18] <Springfield> No, no. Just...hungry!
[19:18] <AN-94> I suppose we haven't eaten since we began.
[19:19] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Nothing for me, thanks. -
[19:20] *** Cutscene of the ship's pantry being raided by dozens of Wasteland Kits, with some of them climbing up onto shelves and pulling or knocking down trays and cans of various foodstuffs.
[19:22] * The Wasteland Kits sniff and paw at the objects. But some of them have already figured out how to open them from previous experiences! They gnaw away at the plastic-foil wrappings to reveal the dough-like substances inside!
[19:25] <AK-12> We may not have time. We're picking up speed.
[19:25] <AN-94> Acceleration?
[19:25] <AK-12> No, something is pulling us forward.
[19:25] * AK-12 brings up an image on the viewscreen of a large billowing purple cloud hovering in space.
[19:26] <AN-94> Sensors indicate an enormous magnetic field.
[19:26] <AK-12> Recommendations, Sparks?
[19:27] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Counter with equal push. We'll have to increase spectrum drive. -
[19:27] <AK-12> Accelerating. 5.002
[19:28] <AN-94> I've got 004.
[19:28] <AK-12> No, 002
[19:28] <AN-94> ...It's 006 now and we're still increasing!
[19:30] *** The outer scene-shot shows the ship rumbling and whining loudly as it accelerates towards the massive purple cloud that forms into a huge, glowing smoke-ring.
[19:31] *** Inside the ship, the camera ship starts to bounce and shake ominously!!!
[19:32] <AK-12> The controls aren't responding! Give me manual control!
[19:32] <AN-94> It won't do any good! We're being pulled in! We're going to break up!
[19:35] *** Suddenly, the ship is engulfed in a massive psychedelic field of shifting colors and high-pitched whining sound! HOLY S[BLEEP]T, THEY'VE GONE TO LUDICROUS SPEED!!!!!!
[19:37] *** AN-94 and AK-12 FALL OUT OF THEIR CHAIRS!!
[19:44] *** Suddenly, the ship stops travelling through "Stanley Kubrick's Technicolor Yawn" and emerges into a glowing blue cloud that gently bellows around it. Soothing, gentle music accompanies!
[19:44] * AN-94 gets back up with exaggerated slowness and effort.
[19:45] * AK-12 does the same thing, moving as if she only has partial balance.
[19:45] * AK-12 reaches out, like she's trying to fight against something.
[19:46] * AN-94 slowly and laborously tries to get back to her chair, occasionally trying to reach out to AK-12!
[19:47] * AK-12 waves her arms like she's trying to swim or something, and adds a weird little pirouette in the process. IS THIS, LIKE, SOME KIND OF DANCE SEQUENCE?!
[19:49] * AN-94 falls into her chair.
[19:49] * AK-12 manages to STRUGGLE and STRAIN to get into her chair!
[19:49] <AK-12> :D
[19:49] <AN-94> ^_______^
[19:50] * AN-94 and AK-12 are both smiling extremely broadly!!
[19:50] <Springfield> O____O
[19:50] *** Suddenly, the ship emerges from the Blue Cloud and all returns to normal.
[19:50] <AK-12> ...What the hell was all of that?
[19:51] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Time dilation. -
[19:52] <AK-12> HOW?!
[19:52] <AN-94> Did we run over a Blue Phonebook or something?
[19:53] <AN-94> ^Phonebooth
[19:53] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Sensors indicate we are nearly at Delta-3. -
[19:53] <AN-94> We crossed that ENTIRE distance?!
[19:55] *** The viewscreen now shows another planet in the distance. It's Delta-3!!!
[19:56] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - We are within gravitational pull of Delta-3. But our trip here has used up most of our nuclear power. -
[19:56] <Springfield> How bad is it?
[19:57] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Barely enough to get into orbit, Doctor. -
[19:57] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - Hold on, I have a sensor contact. -
[19:58] * M4A1 (Sparks) presses a button, and a new image appears on the viewscreen. It's another Delta cargo ship (proudly produced by JEBEDIAH KERMAN'S SECOND-HAND ROCKET PARTS!!!!!!)
[19:59] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - A Delta-3 cargo ship. Same as Phobos-4. Robot pilot on board. Full explosive load in the hold. -
[20:02] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - On course for Omega-2. -
[20:03] <M4A1 (Sparks)> - I am also picking up a distress signal from Delta-3. -
[20:03] <Springfield> Get a fix on that location, Sparks. We're going down.
[20:04] <Springfield> Prepare to disengage.
[20:05] *** The landing section of the Starstreak detaches from the main body of the ship and begins to fall towards the planet. The next scene shows it flying through the clouds. And then...THE CITADEL AND THE VILLAIN'S ROOM!!
[20:05] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) looks up as alarms go off. He looks at the viewscreen to see...
[20:05] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> ...
[20:06] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Well well. What do we have here? An expedition!
[20:06] *** Elsewhere, Persica and MDR are crouched on a slope messing with random computer components.
[20:07] <MDR> Persica, look! :D
[20:07] *** They both look up to see the Starstreak lander flying slowly by.
[20:07] <MDR> Someone did hear you!
[20:08] * Persica smiles, looking SLIGHTLY less tired than usual. "Come on, everyone!" She and the rest of her T-Dolls start running in the direction the lander is setting down at.
[20:09] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) leans forward at his desk and grins at his Robo-Dolls (HK416 and...HEY! That's UMP-9 and UMP-45!!!)
[20:10] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> It seems to me we ought to send out a little...reception committee.
[20:10] *** The Robo-Dolls awkwardly and ponderously stumble-step out of the room, leaving Omus to look at the viewscreen and grin evilly.
[20:11] *** The next scene shows AK-12, AN-94, and Springfield walking through the grass of a misty field.
[20:12] *** Up ahead they see...!
[20:12] <Persica> :D
[20:12] <Persica> it can't be!
[20:13] *** Everyone rushes over for a joyful reunion! Persica's T-Dolls look quite happy and chatter excitedly, while AK-12 just keeps on grinning smugly.
[20:13] <Springfield> Persica, these are AK-12 and AN-94. I wouldn't have made it here without them.
[20:15] <Persica> This is MDR, my executive Twatter-keeper and PR specialist.
[20:16] <MDR> Welcome, but we'd better get out of here. It's not safe here.
[20:17] * MDR trails off as she sees...A ROBO-DOLL AT THE TOP OF A NEARBY HILL, WAVING ITS ARMS.
[20:17] *** Other Robo-Dolls start to stumble-step towards them, making strange alarm-sounds as they go into Battle Mode.
[20:19] *** THE BATTLE SCENE COMMENCES!! With the Robo-Dolls waving their arms around, flailing slowly, and sparking like HELL whenever the other T-Dolls tap or prod them with their weird spears and metal poles.
[20:20] *** Suddenly, the Robo-Dolls stop "attacking".
[20:21] *** A weird blue ghost-like image starts to form in mid-air, slowly focusing into the slowly rotating head and shoulders of...JACK PALANCE!!!!!
[20:24] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> HOW MARVELOUS TO SEE YOU. :)
[20:25] <Springfield> I want to talk to you, Omus! In person! Not just to a...disembodied face. However impressive your holographic invention is.
[20:26] <Springfield> All right, let's get on with it.
[20:27] <Springfield> How do I get to the Citadel?
[20:28] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> IT IS NEARBY. MY GUARD ROBOT WILL BRING YOU.
[20:28] <Persica> This could be dangerous.
[20:28] <Springfield> I'm aware of that, Persica.
[20:28] <AK-12> Please, don't try it alone.
[20:28] <AN-94> It's too risky.
[20:29] * Springfield smiles a little. "If anyone can get to him, maybe I can."
[20:29] * Springfield makes her way over to the Robo-Dolls, who shuffle around her and begin to lead her away from the field.
[20:31] * Persica leads everyone else away in a different direction.
[20:31] *** Back at the Citidal, Jack Palance is looking quite pleased with himself.
[20:32] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) looks at a viewscreen image of the lander.
[20:33] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Starstreak...yes. Perfect. No better way to return to Omega-2 than in Springfield's prized project.
[20:33] *** Insert evil laugh
[20:34] *** Jumpcut AGAIN to Persica, MDR, AN-94, and AK-12 as they huddle around a small campfire at the tunnel entrance.
[20:34] * AK-12 gets up. "I'm not waiting any longer. I'm going into the Citadel."
[20:34] <Persica> It's not that easy.
[20:35] <AK-12> You'll show us the way, won't you?
[20:35] * AK-12 gets on her communicator. "Sparks, how's the power problem?"
[20:36] <M4A1 (Sparks)> Still working on it.
[20:36] <AK-12> Okay, keep monitoring us and keep sensors on Doctor Springfield.
[20:36] <M4A1 (Sparks)> Affirmative.
[20:37] * Persica starts leading everyone into the tunnels. "It's this way."
[20:37] *** Jumpcut BACK into Omus' office as Springfield makes her way inside.
[20:39] * Springfield is closely followed by two Robo-Dolls (yup, it's the UMP sisters again!)
[20:39] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) is sitting in his chair with the back to the door, and slowly and dramatically spins around.
[20:40] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Doctor Springfield.
[20:40] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) gets up and comes over to Springfield, smiling as he extends his hand out to her to shake.
[20:40] <Springfield> >:(
[20:40] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> My...old...mentor.
[20:41] <Springfield> Considering our past relationship, Omus, I think you owe me an explanation.
[20:41] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Ahhhhhhh. Yes! Indeed you do.
[20:42] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) goes back over to his table and waves Springfield over, then presses some buttons and switches.
[20:42] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Now watch this.
[20:43] *** The viewscreen shows various images of industrial machinery and Robo-Dolls wandering around...not ACTUALLY doing anything WITH or TO the machinery, BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT IS IT?
[20:45] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> This is a RADIC-AL-2 factory. My empire...with a network of underground tunnels. My mechanical warriors, mining robots...turned into obedient soldiers. With their new circuitry
[20:45] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> They handle more sophisticated input.
[20:46] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> And a capacity for...independent thought.
[20:46] <Springfield> But...totally loyal to you, no doubt.
[20:46] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> :D
[20:47] <Springfield> Omega-2 will never accept a dictator. That's one thing, at least, we've learned from the history of the planet Earth.
[20:48] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Doctor! You are the one who INSPIRED me. And taught me to place SCIENCE above all else!
[20:48] <Springfield> But never above humanity!
[20:48] <Springfield> If I didn't teach you that then I've failed you miserably.
[20:48] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> I!!!!!
[20:48] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> I am the world of the future!
[20:49] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> And you're back in some DAAARRRRK PAAAAAST!!
[20:49] *** Insert classic Jack Palance acting (hence the reason WHY he's in this movie!!!)
[20:50] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> People are no longer necessary. Even *I* SOMEDAY will no longer be necessary. And YOU...YOU doctor...are longer necessary.
[20:51] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) goes over to something in the corner. He comes back holding a weird, clear, cylindrical helmet in his hands.
[20:51] <Springfield> Omus! You're a sick man! LET ME HELP YOU!!
[20:51] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> NO DOCTOR! Let me help YOU!
[20:51] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Let me...give you your LAST lesson...on the POWER of science!
[20:52] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) starts to put on the silly helmet. Then he goes over to the console and starts working the controls there.
[20:52] *** A deep bass tone starts to be heard, and gets louder as he turns a knob.
[20:55] * Springfield starts to look uncomfortable as the sound increases in tone. A panel opens up in the floor nearby and a pillar-like machine topped a spinning...light...THING...encased in a clear plastic dome appears.
[20:55] * Springfield hunches over a little with her hands on her hips, looking like she's either trying to deal with another PAINFUL bout of diarrhea or a UTI.
[20:55] <Springfield> >___<
[20:56] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) grins as the noise just gets louder!
[20:56] <Springfield> O______o
[20:57] * Springfield quickly shuffles over to the machine and starts shaking it desperately!! The expression on her face makes it look like her bladder is about to EXPLODE LIKE CHERNOBYL!!!!
[20:58] * Springfield keeps shaking and grabbing the machine, her expression being more strained by the moment!!
[21:01] * Springfield starts screaming and spinning around, clutching at her ears and spitting up HUGE amounts of liquefied strawberry jam BLOOD!!!!!!!
[21:03] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) just keeps watching and smiling. HE F[BLEEP]KING LOVES SCIENCE.
[21:04] * Springfield spends an entire MINUTE rolling on the floor and screaming, going into FULL-THROTTLE SHATNER MODE TOWARDS THE END!!!!!!!!!!!
[21:04] * Springfield finally falls silent.
[21:04] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) turns off the machine. The intensely irritating LETHAL sound trails off to nothing.
[21:05] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) slowly walks over.
[21:05] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Where's your humanism now, Doctor?
[21:06] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW since this a good spot
[21:06] *** TOMORROW, we show the FINAL PART of "The Floof of Things to Come"!!
[18:06] *** We're now back...for MOVIE SIGN
[18:06] *** When last we paused, the evil Omus had just subjected Springfield to a most EMBARRASSING demise!!
[18:07] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Where's your humanism now, Doctor?
[18:07] <M4A1 (Sparks)> Doctor Springfield! I'm not getting any of your vital signs! Doctor Springfield! Do you read me?
[18:08] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) leans down to take Springfield's communicator.
[18:08] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> M4A1?
[18:08] * M4A1 (Sparks) stiffens as she hears Omus' voice on the radio
[18:09] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> This is not Doctor Springfield. This is Omus..........your Creator.
[18:09] * M4A1 (Sparks) starts beeping, buzzing, and waving her arms back and forth as she reacts to Omus' voice!!
[18:10] *** Meanwhile, Persica leads the way through the tunnels and machinery rooms of the Citadel, AK-12, AN-94 and everyone else following closely behind her.
[18:12] *** The whole sequence of going through the various rooms takes a few minutes to say the least.
[18:15] * Persica turns to MDR and the other Dolls at one point. "Wait here. The rest of us will go ahead on our own."
[18:16] * Persica finally leads AN-94 and AK-12 to the command room. Through the windows in the door, they can see SOMEONE sitting in the command chair with a purple cape draped over the back.
[18:16] <Persica> There's Omus. And he's alone.
[18:18] * AK-12 and AN-94 both push open the doors and rush into the room, parting to face different directions as they engage in a standard two-person room sweep tactic (minus their guns, naturally).
[18:19] <AK-12> Omus?
[18:19] *** The chair is turned away from them all, and the cape doesn't move.
[18:20] * AK-12 goes over to the chair, takes hold of it, and spins it around to find...!!!!!!!!!!!!
[18:20] <Springfield> X____x
[18:22] * Springfield has been placed in the chair, copious amounts of mixed strawberry and grape jam pureed to a watery consistency BLOOD leaking from her ears, nose, and mouth. Looks like her dress is sticky with it the stuff too. It's like her bowels VOIDED themselves due to some AWFUL FORCE!!
[18:23] <AN-94> SPRINGFIELD~!!! D:
[18:23] <Persica> OH NO!!!
[18:23] <AK-12> I knew...I knew it was too dangerous. We never should have let her come by herself!
[18:23] <AN-94> She's dead! T___T
[18:25] * AN-94 is feeling over Springfield's body for other injuries, but finds a pretty big rash on her arms that had been covered by her coat.
[18:26] <Persica> Those are severe radiation burns! She must have been recently exposed to a huge dose of radiation. She may have already been dying, but that's not what killed her.
[18:26] <Persica> It was Omus. HE killed her.
[18:26] <AK-12> >__<
[18:27] * AK-12 looks PISSED now!
[18:27] * AK-12 gets out her communicator. "Sparks, come in. Can you read us."
[18:32] * M4A1 (Sparks) is back onboard the lander, pressing lots of buttons and switches. Soon, the lander craft starts to take off!
[18:32] * AK-12 and AN-94 see what's happening on the viewscreen!
[18:32] <AK-12> What's she doing? WHAT THE HECK'S SHE DOING?!
[18:33] * AN-94 takes the communicator. "Sparks!! Please, don't you remember?!"
[18:34] <Persica> Omus controls ALL of the robots here, and he probably had a failsafe override embedded in your friend that you didn't know about. We need to get back to the others! Hurry!
[18:35] *** Meanwhile, the Wasteland Kits had disembarked off of the Starstreak lander to explore around and now all look on helplessly as the ship they'd gotten here on takes off without them!
[18:35] <Wasteland Kits> :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :< :<
[18:36] * Wasteland Kits start dashing in the direction of the Citadel in the distance. Hopefully they can find help there!
[18:37] *** At the same time, Persica and AN-94 dash through the halls to get back to MDR and the others, leaving AK-12 behind in the command center to try and regain control of Sparks and the Starstreak lander.
[18:39] *** The scene switches again, going over to a machinery room where MDR, TMP, IDW, P7, G41, and ART556 are waiting.
[18:42] * ~A Robo-Doll that looks a lot like AR-15 grabs hold of P7 and FLINGS her towards the wall!!
[18:42] <P7> Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh~!!
[18:42] * P7 looks more like she's RUNNING towards the wall, then hurls herself sideways into it and BOUNCES off. She's down!
[18:44] * ~Another Robo-Doll (that looks suspiciously like Negev) grabs hold of IDW and hurls the cat-girl SMG doll in the same direction as P7!!
[18:45] * IDW bounces against the wall and slides down it. Another one down!!
[18:46] * Two more Robo-Dolls grab onto ART556 and push her into the wall, then start WHACKING her with their arms, pummelling her to the floor!
[18:47] *** A THIRD Robo-Doll approaches ART556 as she's getting clobbered, holding a big metal pole and starts WHACKING her repeatedly in the head with it. HARD
[18:49] *** The other two Robo-Dolls are KICKING and PUNCHING ART556 while she's down! HOLY CRAP, IS THIS PART ACTUALLY IN THE SCRIPT?!
[18:49] <MDR> Screw this!
[18:51] *** The three Robo-Dolls beating up ART556 look to be...yup! It's Suomi KP-31, Coly M1873, and RFB!!!! And they are TAKING REVENGE on ART556 for what happened back on the Frontline during Christmas!!
[18:54] * MDR whips out her trademark bullpup assault rifle and charges a round!!
[18:55] *** G41 whips out HER assault rifle too! TMP just ducks and covers, starting to freak out!
[18:56] * MDR and G41 open fire, burst-firing in all directions as the Robo-Dolls HURL themselves behind cover! They're NOT moving comically slow now!!
[18:57] *** Two grenades suddenly land nearby. One is smoke grenade. The other looks like an EMP grenade.
[18:57] <G41> Huh?
[18:57] <TMP> UUUWAAAAAH?!?!?!
[18:57] <MDR> OH craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap~!
[18:58] *** Both grenades detonate simultaneously, the first blinding them all, and the second acting very much like a concussion grenade against their cybertronic physiology.
[18:58] <TMP> @___@
[18:58] <MDR> >___<;;;;;
[18:58] <G41> @____@
[18:59] *** Despite the smoke, you can all hear a bunch of rapid footfalls, some thudding, and then a BUNCH of very loud WHACKS.
[19:00] <~> MDR, YOU IDIOT!!!
[19:01] <~> Du kompletter, rücksichtsloser Idiot !!
[19:01] <~> Live Munition?! Wie dumm kannst du sein?!
[19:03] <~> Ba[BLEEP]rd! Hure! Scheiße Kopf!
[19:04] *** The smoke clears a little to reveal MDR being held my her arms and legs, lifted off the ground, and then SLAMMED REPEATEDLY, head first, into the nearest wall like a battering ram.
[19:06] * TMP plays dead like the script requires.
[19:06] * G41 is getting pummeled now too! She DID shoot real bullets from her gun!!
[19:07] *** The scene switches back to AK-12.
[19:07] <AK-12> Sparks, come in please.
[19:08] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Don't waste your energies.
[19:08] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) appears BEHIND AK-12
[19:08] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> And you're one of Springfield's most able helpers.
[19:09] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) looks over at the viewscreen, which is still focused on the Starstreak lander.
[19:09] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Ah, the Starstreak module. It will arrive at the Citadel any moment now.
[19:09] <AK-12> What do you want?
[19:10] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> It will become my new flagship. I'm saying a last farewell to this place and to you and your friends. Except, of course, Sparks.
[19:10] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Who is now working for ME.
[19:10] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) dramatically sits back down in his command chair.
[19:11] * AK-12 is just standing off to the side. Uhhhhh, she COULD be attacking him or something...
[19:11] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> You see...I am going to destroy Delta-3.
[19:12] <AK-12> ...Why? For what reason?
[19:12] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> ^____^
[19:13] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Because I am returning to Omega-2 as spiritual successor to the late Doctor Springfield. Who, unfortunately, died heroically along with the rest of a tragic cosmic accident.
[19:13] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> And there will be no one to prove me wrong. ^__^
[19:13] <AK-12> >__<
[19:14] * AK-12 turns and rushes to the door, only to be intercepted by a pair of Robo-Dolls who grab onto her arms and hold her in place!
[19:15] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) smiles and points at a button on his console. "When I activate that will set into motion the most incredible forces. An evolutionary process that could take a BILLION years, I can speed up... into a matter of minutes.
[19:17] <AK-12> Destroying the entire planet?
[19:17] <AK-12> And our only source of RADIC-AL-2?!
[19:18] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> My cargo ships are fully loaded. They will accompany me on my mission of peace.
[19:18] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) looks up eagerly at the viewscreen as it shows the lander module touching down near the base of the Citadel. "It has arrived!!!"
[19:19] *** Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Citadel, Persica and AN-94 open a door and rush through...only to find a scene of CARNAGE!!!!!
[19:20] <Persica> D:
[19:21] * Persica and AN-94 look on aghast at the scene in front of them. TMP, IDW, and P7 are on the ground, covered in Ketchup BLOOD!!!!
[19:22] *** ART556, has been hog-tied, blindfolded, and stripped naked. She's also been completely covered with...tar and feathers?!
[19:23] *** MDR and G41 have been tied up with several layers of duct tape, almost to the point of being mummified with the stuff, and are currently hanging upside down from the ceiling.
[19:24] *** Meanwhile, back in the command center, Omus stares eagerly at the button in the middle of one of his console panels.
[19:24] <AK-12> OMUS!!
[19:24] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) POOOSHES TEH BUTTON!!!
[19:25] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> ...I must go now.
[19:25] *** Insert diabolical music
[19:25] <AK-12> OMUS!! YOU MURDERER!!!
[19:26] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) stops walking away, turns around, and comes back to his console, reaching out to pick up that goofy cylindrical helmet.
[19:27] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) puts it on, then turns on the PISS YOUR PANTS SONIC DEATH MACHINE!!!
[19:28] * AK-12 can't do much since her arms are being held tight, but her legs start to wobble and her body starts to tremble! She leans her head back and starts to groan and scream as the sound gets LOUDER!!!!
[19:29] *** Back with AN-94 and Persica, their situation gets even worse as more Robo-Dolls appear out of nowhere and start to stumble-stomp towards them! THERE'S NO ESCAPE!!!!
[19:31] *** Outside the Citadel, the Wasteland Kits have nearly reached the landing sites of one of the cargo ships as its being loaded with the last of its cargo. They quickly start to swarm up its loading ramps as strange lightning storms behind to appear in the sky, striking the ground several times near them with multicolored lightning bolts!! The poor Kits all look terrified!!
[19:32] *** Back with Omus and AK-12, the sound has reached a pitch that sounds more like a dentist's drill (ouch!)
[19:33] <M4A1 (Sparks)> I...must...reprogram...Omus's...robots!! Must...resist...!
[19:34] * M4A1 (Sparks) suddenly jerks and gives off several LARGE gouts of flame and sparks from her Dinergate mask as she jolts HERSELF!!!
[19:36] *** Back at AN-94 and Persica, they watch in surprise and amazement as the Robo-Dolls coming towards them stop, start making weird electronic noise, and begin stumbling around drunkenly, waving their arms like they're about ready to fall over. THEIR CIRCUITS ARE BEING SCRAMBLED~!!
[19:37] *** Back in the command center, Omus turns away, convinced that AK-12 is helpless...then the Robo-Dolls holding her let her go and "malfunction"
[19:38] * AK-12 quickly rushes over towards Omus and does a FLYING TACKLE ON HIM!!!
[19:38] * AK-12 punches him a few times, then pulls that SILLY HELMET off of his head and puts it on herself. The terrible sounds immediately recede once she puts the helmet on.
[19:39] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Turn it off...
[19:39] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Turn if off!
[19:39] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> TURN IT OFF!!!
[19:39] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> TURN IT OFF~!!!!!!
[19:40] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) rushes over to the controls, but is halted by one of the Robo-Dolls who pushes him AWAY from the controls! The other Robo-Doll waddles over and blocks Omus from running in any other directions!
[19:40] * AK-12 goes over to shut down the machine.
[19:40] * AK-12 tries pushing other buttons.
[19:41] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> The activator can't be stopped. It's too late.
[19:41] <AK-12> How long do we have?
[19:41] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> ..........Ten minutes.
[19:41] * AN-94 and Persica rush inside. "AK-12! Come on, we have to go!"
[19:42] <AK-12> We have to get to the Starstreak. The planet's going to blow up.
[19:42] <Persica> MDR and the others are dead. It's just us now.
[19:43] *** Everyone stumbles a little as an earthquake hits the area.
[19:44] *** An outside shot shows the Citadel still rising up out of the ground, but parts of the ground are being pushed up while others sink down. The Wasteland Kits are still swarming up into the cargo ship, squeaking and howling in dismay at the destructive forces they're caught in the middle of.
[19:45] * AK-12 , AN-94, and Persica start running through the hallways of the Citadel, leaving Omus behind.
[19:45] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) tries to get away too, but he's blocked on all sides by Robo-Dolls!!!
[19:46] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> Why do you do this to me?
[19:46] <Omus (Jack Palance deepfake)> I AM YOUR CREEEEEE-AAAAAAAA-TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR~!!!!!
[19:48] * Persica , AK-12, and AN-94 keep running.
[19:48] <AK-12> Sparks! Get to one of the other cargo ships! We have to salvage a supply of RADIC-AL-2 for the trip home!!
[19:49] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) can't escape! He slumps down into his command chair and just watches on the viewscreen and volcanoes start to erupt outside and landslides cascade down the hills near the Citadel.
[19:49] *** The Wasteland Kits all vanish inside the cargo ship as the loading ramps start closing up and sealing.
[19:50] *** The Citadel rocks a little as the ground beneath it settles slightly.
[19:51] * AK-12 , AN-94, and Persica rush onto the bridge of the Starstreak lander and quickly get into their chairs.
[19:51] * M4A1 (Sparks) is already onboard the bridge of one of the cargo ships. "All is ready on my end."
[19:52] <AK-12> All right, Sparks! Let's get out of here!
[19:53] *** Insert dramatic music as the cargo ship starts to blast off. A moment later, the Starstreak lander also takes off. As both ships rise off of the ground and streak higher and higher into the sky, the Citadel slowly rocks back and forth.
[19:54] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) is still in his chair as dust cascades down from the ceiling. Bits of debris have started falling too.
[19:55] *** Switch to a screenshot scene of AN-94 and AK-12 look at each other, smiling and relieved at surviving thus far.
[19:56] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) meanwhile is NOT HAVING FUN!!!!! He remains stoney-faced as a large hollow-sounding beam falls from the ceiling, bashes him on the nose with a wooden BONK sound, and smacks into his lap. >____<
[19:57] * Omus (Jack Palance deepfake) WINCES as another beam comes down and BREAKS in half as it hits him on the head! >___<
[19:58] *** The external screenshot focuses on the Citadel...AND THEN IT EXPLODES!!!!!!
[20:00] *** The next scene shows the two ships speeding away from the planet. It slowly recedes into the distance...AND THEN BLOWS UP SPECTACULARLY!!!!!
[20:02] * AK-12 , AN-94, and Persica watch stunned as Delta-3 is completely blown away into what will eventually form into a new asteroid belt.
[20:03] <AK-12> Sparks, the first priority is to get the RADIC-AL-2 shipment back to Omega-2 as soon as possible.
[20:04] <M4A1 (Sparks)> Course set for planet Earth.
[20:04] <AN-94> What about the little foxes?
[20:05] <AK-12> We have to help our own people first. Many of them need the medicine much more badly.
[20:05] * M4A1 (Sparks) is completely unaware that she has ONLOOKERS in the bridge with her!
[20:06] *** Onlookers who heard EVERYTHING AK-12 and AN-94 said over the radio!
[20:07] <Wasteland Kits> >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[
[20:07] *** As the two ships sailed majestically through space, the camera zooms in on the cargo ship, on its midsection where its cargo holds are located, and zoom in closer....
[20:09] *** We see the cargo hold inner doors have been LEFT OPEN!! Boxes containing ampules of RADIC-AL-2 have been knocked over and burst open on contact with the floor!!
[20:09] * Wasteland Kits have been nibbling on and licking up the contents!!!!
[20:10] <Wasteland Kits> O_O O_O O_OO_O O_O O_O
[20:12] *** The scene fades and blurs back to Earth, with the Starstreak and the cargo-ship eventually landing inside Omega-2 docking silos! All the people are happy and rejoice that the danger Omus posed is over!!!!
[20:15] <Springfield voice over> Out there is the vastness of space. The unknown. Where all possibilities exist, and Man's future is limited only by his imagination...and his vision of the stars!
[20:18] *** The final scene shows several T-Dolls opening the cargo bay and preparing to unload the precious contents within...ONLY TO DISCOVER....!!!!!
[20:18] <Wasteland Kits> >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3>:3 >:3 >:3
[20:19] * Wasteland Kits SWARM out of the ship by the hundreds!! THOUSANDS!!! Diving towards one of the T-Dolls who just happens to be...!!!
[20:20] * UMP-9 SCREAMS at the top of her lungs as she's set upon by DOZENS of Wasteland Kits!!!!!!
[01:49] <@Yaijinden> i warned you
[01:49] <@Yaijinden> i warned you all

[20:56] * Matsuo Shin walks over to the astroglobe object..and adjusts it
[20:56] <Matsuo Shin> ...alright...we should be on our way to the moon
[20:56] * Matsuo Shin walks over....and pulls on another lever like object
[20:56] *** outside....part of the ship opens up..unfurling transulcient shimmering wing like sails
[20:57] * Elphelt is watching out one of the windows, as Griselda is recording this to show Ramlethal and Noel once they're back on Earth.
[20:58] <Megan O`Cain> Amazing.
[20:59] * Matsuo Shin walks over to the cabin doors
[20:59] <Matsuo Shin> ....
[20:59] * Matsuo Shin walks outside...
[21:02] <Megan O`Cain> Matsuo?
[21:02] <Matsuo Shin> you can come outside if you want!
[21:03] <Elphelt> Hold a moment.... does this ship carry its own atmosphere?
[21:04] <Matsuo Shin> it's alright..come out
[21:05] * Sean Collins steps out on deck with Matsuo
[21:05] <Sean Collins> Its like reliving a dream, Matsuo.
[21:05] * Elphelt and Griselda step out onto the deck to check things out.
[21:05] *** all around can see earth in the distance.........the ship sails if it's on an ocean
[21:05] * Matsuo Shin leans against a rail
[21:05] <Matsuo Shin> ...did your parents ever take you on a cruise around the moons, Sean?
[21:06] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3

[21:06] *** Chibi-Nat (fox form) has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:06] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Nat (fox form)
[21:06] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) looks out at all the stars!!!! :O
[21:06] <Sean Collins> Around Saturn's Moons when I was very young. Before my sisters.
[21:07] <Megan O`Cain> Hey, Sean. Didn't see you climb aboard. :P
[21:07] <Matsuo Shin> he's very quiet
[21:09] * Megan O`Cain joins Matsuo and Sean out on the deck
[21:09] <Matsuo Shin> we should reach the moon in....ten minutes or so?
[21:11] <Sean Collins> I've learned a thing or two from Hideki :)
[21:12] <Megan O`Cain> Heh. Or you could have picked up something from someone like me. :P
[21:13] <Griselda> So, to reach the moon from Earth in about ten minutes.... not too bad for an old ship like this.
[21:13] * Matsuo Shin watches a few of the stars drift by....the ship rocks back and forth a bit slowly again like a sail ship
[21:13] <Matsuo Shin> well with Sean's and david's help!
[21:14] *** inside the cabin, one of the levers jiggles a bit...before locking downward....
[21:14] *** the entire ship suddenly lurches silghtly as it seems to catch some kind of current...speeding up!
[21:14] <Matsuo Shin> gah!
[21:14] <Griselda> Physics-wise, this thing would have to be moving at well over a million---
[21:15] <Griselda> ...I take it this wasn't supposed to happen.
[21:15] <Megan O`Cain> Whoa! O_o
[21:15] <Matsuo Shin>'s not!
[21:15] * Matsuo Shin rushes back to the cabin..and spots the lever..and tries to pull it back up...but it's locked down....
[21:15] <Matsuo Shin> s[BLEEP]t s[BLEEP]t s[BLEEP]t
[21:16] * Matsuo Shin goes to the wheel..trying to move the ship out of the Aerthim Current it's stuck in
[21:16] <Matsuo Shin> oh..come on....turn...damn you..turn...
[21:16] * Sean Collins goes to help Matsuo with the wheel!
[21:16] *** to the outside observers...the moon rapidly approuches......then just as rapidly moves past
[21:17] <Matsuo Shin> sean..try to...turn it back to the original current...
[21:17] <Elphelt> What a maiden voyage this is turning out to be, huh?
[21:17] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> D:
[21:17] <Sean Collins> Aye aye!
[21:18] <Solarchos> Are we in any danger?
[21:18] *** the wheel is fighting against the two
[21:18] <Megan O`Cain> We went past the Moon!
[21:18] <Matsuo Shin> I know!...everyone..back in the cabin!!!
[21:18] * Megan O`Cain goes to check on Matsuo and Sean
[21:18] * Sean Collins puts his strength into it, but also tries to not force it too much to damage the wheel...
[21:19] <Matsuo Shin> EVERYONE BACK IN
[21:20] <Matsuo Shin> ...sean! ahead!....
[21:20] <Megan O`Cain> What happened?!
[21:21] *** rapidly a familer yellow tinted clouded planet
[21:21] * Elphelt and Griselda head back into the cabin. " that Venus?"
[21:21] <Matsuo Shin> ..yes and we're about to crash into it!
[21:22] * Solarchos is already in the cabin with Natalia
[21:22] <Megan O`Cain> What can I do to help?
[21:22] <Matsuo Shin> I don't..kno-.....
[21:23] <Matsuo Shin> BRACE YOURSELF EVERYONE!!!
[21:25] <Solarchos> D:
[21:25] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >_<;;;;
[21:25] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) is curled up and HIDING in Daddy's arms!
[21:25] * Megan O`Cain hunkers down for impact
[21:25] *** the ship PLOWS into Venus's thick atmosphere....sending the ship spiraling around...
[21:26] * Matsuo Shin holds tihgtly to the wheel...trying desperatly to regain control ><
[21:27] <Matsuo Shin> ho..hold on >_<
[21:28] <Sean Collins> ...Oh spirits...
[21:28] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~!!! T___T
[21:29] *** the ship spins and rocks and finally WHAM...stops with a sudden thud
[21:29] * Solarchos activates the disaster beacon on his clyuno
[21:29] * Matsuo Shin is nearly lauched over the wheel
[21:29] * Griselda makes an attempt to help right Matsuo and get the ship under control.
[21:29] <Matsuo Shin> everyone alright?
[21:30] <Megan O`Cain> I'm okay.
[21:30] <Griselda> A-OK over here.
[21:30] <Elphelt> @_@ Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...........
[21:31] <Matsuo Shin> ..thank the six this thing has some shielding....still with the sheer heat out there...this thing will fall apart in a good 15 minutes if we don't get off!
[21:33] <Solarchos> I think I'm okay.
[21:33] <Megan O`Cain> What needs fixing?
[21:33] <Solarchos> We need to move quickly.
[21:33] <Solarchos> Also, what the FRELL happened?!
[21:33] <Matsuo Shin> a little..sean...can you check the lever..I'm going to see if any of the other instruments are busted
[21:33] <Matsuo Shin> we got caught in a fast moving current..threw us off
[21:35] *** something..strikes Nat in the eyes...
[21:35] <Griselda> Elphelt and I can help out however. Direct us as you need.
[21:35] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> DX
[21:35] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> SOMETHING HIT ME!
[21:35] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) looks around, scared.
[21:35] <Matsuo Shin> I just need to double check our instruments...
[21:36] *** nat..the thing that struck you in the a soft beam of sunlight...from outside?
[21:36] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) blinks and looks outside. o__o
[21:36] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Shiny?
[21:37] * Megan O`Cain looks around to see if there's anything that needs fixing
[21:37] *** soon as you look out..the brightness outside at first is almost blinding...but after a seems to clear up.............and you can see..a landscape?
[21:37] <Solarchos> What can I do?
[21:37] <Matsuo Shin> um Megan..can you check the navigation
[21:38] <Matsuo Shin> solar...double check our structure in the cabin
[21:38] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> What's out there?
[21:38] <Megan O`Cain> Sure thing, Matsuo.
[21:38] * Sean Collins checks the consoles as instructed
[21:38] * Solarchos examines the structural integrity inside the cabin
[21:38] * Megan O`Cain checks the navigation systems
[21:39] <Matsuo Shin> a deadly hell scape, nat.....nothing but burning landscapes and death
[21:40] * Elphelt takes a look outside, curious as to what Natty is seeing.
[21:40] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) examines that landscape she saw.
[21:41] *** you can see a tree....wait..a tree?
[21:42] <Elphelt> Are my neuroptics going haywire?
[21:42] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Tree?
[21:42] <Sean Collins> Nothing appears to be damaged
[21:42] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) looks for a way to go outside to investigate.
[21:43] *** the cabin door is slightly ajar due to the crash
[21:43] * Elphelt quickly pokes Griselda, to point her attention outside.
[21:43] <Matsuo Shin> everything looking ok, Sean?
[21:43] <Sean Collins> Yup
[21:44] <Matsuo Shin> the sooner we can get off this world the better...
[21:44] * Megan O`Cain is still checking navigation
[21:45] <Matsuo Shin> Megan..any luck?
[21:46] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) NIPS OUTSIDE!
[21:46] <Solarchos> NATALIA!! NO!!
[21:46] <Elphelt> (Uh oh.)
[21:46] <Megan O`Cain> Nothing yet.
[21:46] * Elphelt quickly gives chase. Her T-Doll physiology should give her some amount of resistance to the Venusian atmosphere.
[21:47] * Matsuo Shin glances over
[21:47] <Matsuo Shin> S[BLEEP]T!!
[21:47] <Matsuo Shin> Sean!
[21:47] * Solarchos rushes after Natalia!!!!!
[21:47] <Matsuo Shin> six dammit!
[21:48] * Matsuo Shin puts a psychic shield around himself and tries to go after them..he knows he can only last three minutes with this
[21:48] <Matsuo Shin> HEY COME BA-
[21:48] <Matsuo Shin> ..........
[21:48] <Matsuo Shin>
[21:48] <Matsuo Shin> sean
[21:48] <Matsuo Shin> mind..coming out?
[21:48] * Sean Collins follows!
[21:48] * Griselda heads over to join Elphelt.
[21:49] <Matsuo Shin> ...this is....impossible...
[21:50] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> O__O
[21:50] *** the ship has landed in the middle of what seems to be a large bed of golden flowers.......a soft warm breeze blows through the air....there are trees with shimmering silver leaves and up above...there are thick clouds but they have a golden tint to them, with sunlight bleeding through
[21:50] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> :O
[21:50] <Solarchos> This...isn't a super-hot, super-dense atmosphere of sulphuric acid.
[21:51] <Matsuo Shin> it isn't....
[21:51] <Griselda> Hm... I wonder what caused this to happen.
[21:51] <Megan O`Cain> It feels...nice out here.
[21:52] * Matsuo Shin pauses..then climbs down from the ship
[21:52] *** the air smells sweet...there's a tinge to the the smell of oranges
[21:52] <Sean Collins> What is going on? I thought the planets had no babitable zones since the fall?
[21:52] <Sean Collins> ^habitable
[21:53] <Megan O`Cain> Mmmm, that sweet smell.
[21:53] <Matsuo Shin> ..i don't understand it honestly
[21:53] <Solarchos> Where exactly are we? Is this some kind of pocket dimension?
[21:54] * Matsuo Shin reaches down to pick up a flower.........only to jump back as a flock of...bird like creatures burst from the nearby tree and take flight
[21:54] <Elphelt> Perhaps something has happened that altered history? I admit, I'm still learning much about the Sol, and Miss Griselda has been helping us understand more, but.....
[21:54] <Matsuo Shin> .....I think this is Venus
[21:54] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) sniff-sniffs the flowers!!
[21:54] *** the flowers smell sweet
[21:55] * Griselda decides to take the practical route, and decides to attune her senses. If a habitable zone is here on Venus, perhaps there could be inhabitants they could converse with?
[21:55] <Matsuo Shin> I don't undersatnd this at all
[21:55] *** Griselda, your senses tell you there is no intellegent life on the planet other then yourself and the other members of the ship
[21:56] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) nibbles on a flower! :3
[21:56] <Megan O`Cain> Indeed, Matsuo. It shouldn't be here, yet here we are.
[21:58] *** the flower tastes sharp
[21:58] * Matsuo Shin looks over the ship "..we can probably get it going again.."
[21:58] <Griselda> I'm not picking up on any signs of life aside from us.
[21:59] <Griselda> Maybe this was a fluke and there's an old terraforming system still running after 10,000 years?
[22:00] <Solarchos> At least it'll give us the time to effect proper repairs.
[22:01] <Matsuo Shin> ..sean..are you ok?
[22:02] * Megan O`Cain investigates her surroundings a bit more
[22:02] * Chibi-Nat (fox form) chirps and trills as she explores around.
[22:04] * Griselda makes certain to get this recorded, and even tells Elphelt to get on jotting this all down.
[22:04] <Sean Collins> Yeah...still find it all unbelievable.
[22:06] * Griselda decides to venture a bit further from the group, and considering she has Instantaneous Movement if it comes time to leave she can be back in the blink of an eye.
[22:08] *** the landscape is vast..there are rounded mountains in the can hear the sound of water as well....the slow flow of a river
[22:08] <Sean Collins> Do you think we should tell Minako?
[22:08] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> :O
[22:08] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> Gensokyo?
[22:10] <Matsuo Shin> might be a good idea....
[22:10] <Elphelt> ....say, is Venus the only world that this has happened to?
[22:10] <Matsuo Shin> you think
[22:11] <Matsuo Shin> ...that's the question...
[22:11] <Matsuo Shin> if this planet is restored..what about the others?
[22:13] <Matsuo Shin> ..we should probably get the ship sitting back up straight
[22:14] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm. What could have caused this, though? Last I heard, the planets were devoid of life after the Silver Millennium ended.
[22:16] <Elphelt> That's what I was asking earlier. Did something completely alter history?
[22:16] <Solarchos> Wait...I recall something. But I need to consult with the Ordo Chronos and Xenos before I can give a good answer.
[22:16] <Matsuo Shin> much as i want to explore more...we shold probably get back
[22:17] * Elphelt signals for Griselda to rejoin the group. Did she find anything else of interest with her venture?
[22:18] * Solarchos scoops up Natalia and heads back into the cabin to put her in a seat and handle repairs inside.
[22:19] * Solarchos is away: "Alldrogis? Tsubaki? I need to speak with both of you..."
[22:20] *** she probably found plenty of plants..and saw a few animals as well
[22:20] * Matsuo Shin tries to push the ship back on it's upright postion with some difficulty ><
[22:21] * Griselda heads over to lend Matsuo a hand.
[22:21] <Megan O`Cain> Next time we go on a trip, I oughta get my cousins in on it.
[22:22] * Megan O`Cain lends a hand in pushing the ship upright as well
[22:24] *** the ship finally gets upright.....
[22:25] <Matsuo Shin> ..alright everyone..let's..head back onboard...
[22:26] <Megan O`Cain> Alrighty.
[22:26] * Megan O`Cain climbs back into the ship
[22:28] <Matsuo Shin> sean...I think we better get home
[22:28] <Sean Collins> Yeah
[22:29] * Matsuo Shin climbs on board and helps the others...
[22:29] * Sean Collins gets into the cabin to help with take off
[22:30] * Griselda and Elphelt enter the cabin again.
[22:31] * Matsuo Shin gets the systems going....and after a few minutes..the ship takes off....and through the atmosphere...
[22:33] *** the rest of the trip is rather smooth...we shall not bore you with the details of this voyage.....

[22:48] <Sean Collins> So...should we tell Minako about this?
[22:48] <Sean Collins> (( Sorry, retcon that ))

Errr… This should do it for greetings, right? From now on, please take care of me, Chan-Masu "
[19:18] * Mata Hari leads Daini around

[19:40] * Matsumi Kaze and her servants try to move forward!
[19:40] <Solarchos> Time for the final encore.
[19:41] <David O`Cain> Huh. Seems they needed a kick in ass to get moving, eh?

[19:41] <Solarchos> Tamamo-Cat...advance and SHUT that horrid singing DOWN!
[19:41] <Chibi-Alex> All right, Alexander the Third, show me what you can do!
[19:41] * Gareth prepares her lance..

[20:49] <David O`Cain> Bait?
[20:50] <The Magistra> "there's only one prize" "The other Masters are obsticles inn the maze"
[20:50] <The Magistra> had they actully turned on each other I wouldn't have given them the good prize

[21:21] <David O`Cain> Heh. It's a pleasure to meet you, too.
[21:22] <The Magistra> The card is their Saint Graph. As long as it's intact they can be re-summoned. We also have it on file as a backup
[21:24] <David O`Cain> Nice, Magi. I ought to keep this safe from damage, shouldn't I?
[21:24] <Charlotte Corday> I am sorry if I am a dissapointmet as your summons but I will do my best
[21:26] <David O`Cain> No need to apologize, Charlotte. I had no idea who I would wind up summoning is all.

[21:27] <Charlotte Corday> you wish me to leave?
[21:32] <David O`Cain> Stay, Charlotte. :)
[21:32] <Charlotte Corday> oh very well, Master
[21:34] <David O`Cain> Anything else I should know, Magi?

[21:36] <David O`Cain> No info about Charlotte?
[21:39] * Charlotte Corday just meekly stands there

[21:46] <The Magistra> Well she's an Assassin Class.
[21:47] <The Magistra> She the woman that assassinated the leader of the Jacobin faction in the French Revolution, Jean-Paul Marat. Due to her beautiful appearance, and her reputation for the skill to plan and execute an assassination on her own, she was praised as "The Angel of Assassination".

[21:48] <David O`Cain> He didn't know until it was too late.
[21:54] <Charlotte Corday> *smiles*

[22:05] <The Magistra> E is the worst A+++++++++++ is the best, with EX off the rating scale
[22:06] <David O`Cain> I see. I've got a lot to learn, don't I?
[22:07] <The Magistra> The best way to learn is to talk to your Servant
[22:07] <David O`Cain> Alrighty. Before going, what are the Command seals you mentioned?
[22:08] <The Magistra> You have three. You can use them to buff a servant... or force them to follow a commad aganst their will
[22:08] <The Magistra> They should have appeared somewhere on you. Usually (But not always) on nthe back of your hand
[22:09] <The Magistra> The shape varies
[22:12] * Charlotte Corday simply stands there, demurly
[22:13] <David O`Cain> Huh. Alrighty. Any commands I ought to be more knowledgeable about that help a Servant?
[22:14] <The Magistra> Not really
[22:14] <David O`Cain> Eh, thought I'd ask.
[22:15] <The Magistra> Just ya know, more vauge the command, the weaker the buff
[22:15] <David O`Cain> Ohhh, okay. It's all in how it's said.
[22:15] <The Magistra> Yeah. Intent means little.
[22:16] <The Magistra> THere was an... incident in anotehr timeline where a Master ordered his servant not to use her Noble Phantasm on him. So she used it on herself and achiveved the same effect
[22:17] <David O`Cain> I see. Any special gestures necessary?
[22:19] <The Magistra> Nope
[22:20] <David O`Cain> Alrighty. I guess if there's nothing else, shall we head upstairs?
[22:24] <Charlotte Corday> if that is what you wish, master
[22:24] <David O`Cain> I'm asking both of you, Magi and Charlotte.

[01:40] * Qeinoss watches the atrium through her looking pool
[01:41] * Qeinoss is having her hair brushed by a servant
[01:41] <Qeinoss> they are so quiet's sad little entertainment...
[01:41] <Servant> that is the nature of mortals, my lady......they are fickle things
[01:42] * Qeinoss frowns "that's what some say of us"
[01:42] <Qeinoss> that is enough, thank you...
[01:42] * Servant nods to Qeinoss and exits the room
[01:43] * Qeinoss sighs...
[01:49] * Qeinoss watches the pool change...
[01:50] * Qeinoss smiles as she sees Selene, sleeping peacefully in her crib...remembering the infant who she pledged to protect and give her blessings upon
[01:50] * Qeinoss is amused by the sight of Eirene and the other girls in their quarters....sleeping peacefully.....
[01:51] * Qeinoss arches an eyebrow at the sleeping form of Hikaru.....narrowing her eyes at the metal box there
[01:53] * Qeinoss yawns herself....even a goddess must rest at times
[01:55] * Qeinoss steps away from the pool and lays herself upon a sort of couch made of clouds...she does not need to sleep but she rests...

[20:37] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Jovian Medical Ship Nightengale
[20:42] * Ian is trying to walk down a cooridor, still getting used to his new cybernetics and limbs. Aine follows close behind in case she sees him stumble or start to fall.
[20:44] <Aine> Please be careful, my lord.
[20:45] <Ian> I am taking care...but I need to recover faster.
[20:45] <Aliana Junia> Don't push yourself dear.
[20:46] <Aliana Junia> Don't push too hard that is.
[20:46] <Ian> Ian pauses and looks up. "Ali..."
[20:47] * Ian pauses and looks up. "Ali..."
[20:47] <Aliana Junia> I know how you feel, but your body needs to fully accept the implants.
[20:48] <Aine> Lady Aliana, it is good to have you here with my Lord. He does get a bit worked up when you are away.
[20:49] <Ian> I know...and I am adapting more. But I can't stand to just sit or lay still.
[20:50] <Aliana Junia> I understand Lady Aine. Ian sweetheart, we are to help support you.
[20:53] <Ian> I know, and I value your support and company. Being a refugee now...and an enemy to most of your allies...I am not used to this kind of isolation.
[20:54] <Aine> It is...difficult.
[20:55] <Ian> As long as you are with me, Aliana, I can bear it.
[20:56] <Kev Junia> I promise you, it will become easier. You are not a refugee, but a valuable ally and friend. The Coalition is full of those who used to be enemies.
[20:56] * Kev Junia steps through the door and nods to the three.
[20:56] <Aliana Junia> And I will be here with you every step of the way.
[20:58] <Kev Junia> How are you doing today Prince Ian?
[21:11] <Ian> I am...well enough. But I am no longer a prince. Just an Exile.
[21:12] <Kev Junia> Oh, but you are. Just because you are in exile doesn't remove your rank.
[21:13] <Aine> You are still the rightful prince of the new kingdom! No matter what that imposter Jethro may tell the people!
[21:14] <Aliana Junia> I agree, the time is coming to create your government-in-exile and we will support that.
[21:14] <Ian> He who weilds the sword is the prince of the people! He took my eye and my arm to do it...I was deposed, and outmatched...
[21:15] <Aine> That Jethro was cruel and ruthless...
[21:15] <Kev Junia> Nothing but a pretender who butchered you to fool the people of your Kingdom.
[21:17] <Aliana Junia> You don't need a sword to be a true prince. Those people trusted and believed in you Ian dear. They need to know you still care about them though.
[21:19] <Ian> You told me the puppet was killed. For all the people know, that dead body was me. And that Jethro will surely make the people believe it.
[21:20] <Kev Junia> We need to find a way to break the propaganda machine that Jethro is probably running at full power. I think my wife can help reestablish that you are the real deal though.
[21:22] <Ian> If the people see me now, as I am...Jethro will proclaim me a fake. Convincing the people will not be easy.
[21:23] <Aliana Junia> The problem is the longer we wait, the harder it will be to rally your people.
[21:25] <Ian> How can you be so sure the people will believe us, Ali?
[21:27] <Aliana Junia> You have Aine, Alathea-Makoto, and myself.
[21:28] <Kev Junia> The three women of your life. Your people would probably wonder why the three would be with a "fake" unless the fake isn't a fake.
[21:32] <Ian> The people of the New Kingdom have learned not to trust the Earth Allies...our enemies from our founding. At best, they would only see Aine and Alethea as traitors...though I would never have declared such a thing. Jethro surely would.
[21:32] <Kev Junia> Any attack by us would only reinforce that too.
[21:33] * Kev Junia starts to think.
[21:33] <Kev Junia> Oh, I was hoping to have this be a little more organic, but maybe...
[21:40] * Ian 's cybernetic eye suddenly flashes, and he stumbles down, holding his head!
[21:40] <Aine> My lord!
[21:41] <Aliana Junia> Ian!
[21:41] * Aliana Junia rushes over to him
[21:41] <Kev Junia> Hmmm...
[21:44] <Ian> Agh! This eye...its the hardest to control...
[21:46] <Kev Junia> Don't focus on it. Just let it go naturally.
[21:48] <Aine> Rest, my lord. You will control it soon.
[21:49] <Ian> I don't need to rest...
[21:51] <Aliana Junia> Please don't force yourself too much. It hurts me when I see you suffering.
[21:55] <Ian> ...forgive me, Aliana. I don't wish to cause you anguish over my condition.
[21:58] <Aliana Junia> No, I am here for you.
[21:58] <Ian> I really am not worthy of all you have done for me...much less worthy of being the one you...
[22:01] <Aliana Junia> No, you are the most worthy. Your love for your people, how you have treated me, how can you say that you are not worthy?
[22:03] <Kev Junia> Ooh...
[22:14] <Ian> Because in all this time, I did nothing to try and change things. I kept leading my people against yours. Still treating Earth an an enemy. I didn't try to comefor you...I was afraid.
[22:15] <Ian> In the was you again who saved me. From the nightmares and darkness...and from certain doom as well.
[22:17] <Aliana Junia> Yet you saved me as well. You protected Makoto-Alathea. Yes we were on opposite sides, but that didn't change my feelings for you.
[22:22] <Ian> Nor mine...
[22:23] <Kev Junia> And I must say how grateful I am as well. I never imagined being able to ever reunite with Mako-chan. You made that possible, and words can never express how grateful I truly am.
[22:26] <Ian> But I couldn't keep her safe from those traitorous Oppositos...Nor Aliana.
[22:27] <Aine> My lord, you can't keep blaming yourself for their actions.
[22:30] <Ian> I could have done things differently...I could have taken action. I could have been stronger. I could have kept them both from harm...especially Aliana
[22:33] <Kev Junia> It doesn't matter. Lady Aine is right, blaming yourself for past actions is not helpful. Besides, you did help protect them as best as you could. Now we have a chance to make up for past deeds and help save your people.
[22:34] <Aliana Junia> My Dear Ian, my brother is correct. If you hadn't helped me, I don't know if I could have gotten through that time.
[22:35] * Ian tries to stand
[22:37] * Aliana Junia goes over and supports him.
[22:40] <Ian> Perhaps...I am still afraid...
[22:41] <Aliana Junia> There is nothing wrong with fear. It's a part of us all, as bravery isn't the absent of fear, but overcoming it. That's why we support each other.
[22:47] * Ian smiles. "Ali, even now you fill me with confidence and joy."
[22:54] <Aliana Junia> As you fill me with confidence and joy. I know what my heart tells me, just as it told my twin brother. You are my destiny.
[22:54] * Aliana Junia smiles sweetly at Ian.
[22:57] * Aine scoots closer to Kevin. "Perhaps my lord and the lady need some...time alone?"
[23:01] * Kev Junia whispers back "I am inclined to agree. Let's quietly move out."
[23:01] * Kev Junia quietly heads back to the door.
[23:19] * Aine heads for the door as well. Glancing back to see Ian lean in to kiss Aliana...
[23:20] * Aliana Junia reciprocates while blushing.

[18:12] <Eliza McIntash> So... uh, Gemini. I wanted to ask you some questions because I think that these questions might very likely relate to me and be important.
[18:12] <@Gemini Sunrise> Shoot.
[18:12] * Eliza McIntash fumbles with the pen, not noticing it's already out, and retracting unnecessarily.
[18:12] <Eliza McIntash> Okay.
[18:12] <Eliza McIntash> Are you left-handed or right handed?
[18:12] <Eliza McIntash> Or ambidexterous?

[18:17] * Eliza McIntash finishes writing on the clipboard sheet.
[18:17] <Eliza McIntash> I think I did. It's a good start.
[18:17] <@Gemini Sunrise> Great!
[18:17] <Eliza McIntash> The only other question I'd be tempted to ask would be what happens when you aren't in fine health, because I might need to watch out for that vulnerability.
[18:17] * Eliza McIntash stands.
[18:18] <Eliza McIntash> I really appreciate your help. I hope I didn't pull you from your dinner too long.
[18:18] <@Gemini Sunrise> No worries, darlin~

[18:03] *** Cheesy Kit Productions
[18:03] *** SHAMELESSLY presents~!!!!
[18:05] *** The movie starts!!
[18:06] * ~ The scene starts with [url=} THIS SULTRY SHOTGUN GIRL[/url] sitting behind a newscaster's desk. Her hair is like snow, her skin is the color of caramel, and her voice is deep and gentle.
[18:07] * The girl is now known as M-590
[18:08] <M-590> In the last few years the world has become more and more aware of the population explosion.
[18:09] <M-590> The Organics are concerned about if there will be peace. If they'll be able to survive on Earth. Will they have enough clean air to breathe? Or any air for that matter.
[18:11] <M-590> Will there be enough room to live in? Will there be enough shotgun ammunition to go around...because I'm not sharing mine.
[18:11] <M-590> Nature, until now, has had a carefully planned balance. But conditions often change this pattern.
[18:14] *** A display screen behind and beside M-590 starts showing an old black and white movie of rabbits FOXES by the hundreds swarming through a forest and bouncing off of a wire-mesh fence. The title reads "[s]RABBITS[/s} FOXES THREATEN PASTORAL LANDS OF AUSTRALIA."
[18:14] <M-590> ...And tip scales against the planet.
[18:15] <M-590> Here we see footage of the Great Rabbit War of 1954...
[18:18] <M-590> Where a massive swarm of Outback Foxes threatened Humanities' existence by killing livestock, devouring all crops, and destroying property.
[18:20] * M-590 continues her monologue as the film shows various images of HUNDREDS of Foxes scampering and galloping back and forth, oftentimes running circles around the kimono-wearing people. HEY! THIS WAS SHOT IN GENSOKYO!!!!
[18:21] <M-590> How would Humanity protect itself? By poison? By traps? And what would have been the consequences of such actions?
[18:22] <M-590> Outback Kits...which seemed so cuddly as pets and companions had become a menace.
[18:23] <M-590> They'd first been shipped there to help combat certain types of insects, but quickly became so numerous that they became aggressive in their search to find alternative food sources.
[18:24] * M-590 keeps talking as the movie showed dozens of "Outback Kits" SWARMING at one of the mesh fences at a full gallop, then leaping up and BOUNCING off of it...waitaminute, THEY'RE ALL HAVING FUN!
[18:29] <M-590> All over Australia, the outbreak spread, eventually threatening the major population centers. Nature's balance had gotten completely out of hand.
[18:30] *** The film scene showed ALL of the British T-Dolls gathered together in a firing line, preparing to engage a MASSIVE horde of "Outback Kits"...WAIT, SOME OF THOSE OUTBACK KITS HAVE BEEN PAINTED BLUE AND WHITE!!!
[18:31] * A random Outback Kit tilts back its head and howls. The caption underneath it reads. "They can take all of our snacks, but they can never take...OUR FREEDOM!!!!!!!"
[18:34] <M-590> Right now, a new mega-swarm of Outback Kits has broken out. These Kits now threaten the American Southwest, jeopardizing both the ranching and wheat industries.
[18:35] *** The scene shows a BUNCH of T-Dolls rushing back and forth at what looks like a farm that's surrounded by a mesh-wire fence...that's the only thing holding back HUNDREDS of Outback Kits trying to break through it.
[18:36] <M-590> It's difficult to conceive that such an innocent and cute little creature, known scientifically as Vulpes Vulpes, can be so destructive.
[18:37] *** The scene shows an intense BATTLE as the Kits have broken through, swarming all around the T-Dolls as they try to capture them and put them into little cages and sacks.
[18:37] <M-590> Can this population explosion be contained?
[18:38] *** The last scene shows a few little foxes resting atop a small mound, and an adult Fox suddenly emerges from inside the mound, sporting a smug grin as the camera freezes on it!
[18:39] <~> Cheesy Kit Productions presents...NIGHT OF THE KUMIHO!!!
[18:39] <~> Starring...the G&K T-Dolls!
[18:40] <~> Also starring...Reisen Udongein Inaba.

[18:44] <~> Director of editing - CIRNO
[18:46] <~> Based LOOSELY on the novel "The Year of the Angry Rabbit" by Russell Braddon.
[18:49] *** The movie finally gets underway, starting with an aerial shot of a dusty, arid plain. Someone's riding a horse across it like a scene straight out of "High Plains Drifter".
[18:50] *** UMP-45 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:50] <@spiritflame> konbanwa UMP-45
[18:51] * UMP-45 is riding that horse and seems to be enjoying herself as she rides through an area that has a bunch of holes and raised mounds in the packed soil.
[18:51] <UMP-45> ^____^
[18:53] *** In the middle of the field of holes and mounds the ground beneath the horse's hooves gives way!! The horse pitches to the side HARD, throwing UMP-45 off and sending her flying!
[18:55] * UMP-45 hits the ground, throwing up a huge plume of dust as she sprawls. Getting up, she looks around.
[18:56] *** A bunch of Outback Kits stare back at her. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
[18:57] * UMP-45 goes back over to her horse, which hasn't gotten back up yet. It's still laying on its side, braying and whinnying in pretty ugly-sounding ways.
[18:58] * UMP-45 feels its front legs, then frowns.
[18:59] * UMP-45 gets out her submachine gun, takes aim, and starts FIRING into the horse from point-blank range.
[19:02] <UMP-45> :(
[19:03] * UMP-45 removes the saddle from the new-deceased horse and starts to walk away.
[19:08] * UMP-45 starts her long walk back across the plains, leaving the now-dead horse in the fields...surrounded by a swiftly-gathering group of Outback Kits numbering in the several DOZENS.
[19:08] <Random Outback Kit> Yum-yum meeeeaaaaaaat~! :D
[19:10] *** The scene switches to what looks like a horse ranch run by multiple T-Dolls! UMP-45 walks through the main gate, looking thoroughly worn out and dejected.
[19:11] *** UMP-9 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:11] <@spiritflame> konbanwa UMP-9
[19:11] * UMP-9 quickly approaches UMP-45
[19:11] <UMP-9> Where's your horse?
[19:12] <UMP-45> We stepped in a fox-hole. Its leg got broken. I had to put it down. It's still out on the plains We should go out and retrieve the carcass.
[19:12] <UMP-9> For what? Glue?
[19:13] * UMP-45 goes inside and gets on one of those old-fashioned crank-driven telephones. WHAT YEAR IS THIS MOVIE SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING PLACE IN ANYWAY?
[19:15] <UMP-45> Hey, Reisen? Get me President Elgin Clark at the college in Aho. What?
[19:15] <UMP-45> ...
[19:15] <UMP-45> Okay, sorry I snapped at you. But I've got me a feud going on up here. Yeah...Elgin Clark.
[19:17] *** The movie does ANOTHER jump-cut of epic proportions, clearly taking place sometime later. UMP-45 is with someone in a small city that looks like it could be anywhere in Arizona, and the person she's next to is...!
[19:17] *** DeForest Kelley (deepfake) has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:17] <@spiritflame> konbanwa DeForest Kelley (deepfake)
[19:18] * DeForest Kelley (deepfake) looks JUST like classic Star Trek Doctor McKoy!! Except with a mustache.
[19:19] <UMP-45> I'll tell you...these foxes are eating me out of house and home.
[19:21] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Well I've arranged to have Professor Taylor meet us in my office.
[19:22] <UMP-45> I don't think I want that guy.
[19:22] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Well why not?
[19:22] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> He's the one that got rid of your coyote problem for you.
[19:23] <UMP-45> Yeah, well he's a little too good. I haven't heard a coyote yapping around back there for over a year. There's a balance to these things. It's tricky.
[19:28] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Yeah, I know it is. Wait, I've got a thought. There's a young couple here from the East on an exchange program. They're experimenting with a new way to control insects without killing everything else at the same time.
[19:28] <UMP-45> I have foxes. Not bugs.
[19:29] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Just trust me. They won't go around killing everything in sight. I'll get up there to see them right away.
[19:33] *** JUMP-CUT! The scene is now of some jagged low cliffs with a cave in the side, and a horde of squeaking BATS swarming through the air!
[19:38] *** Standing at the mouth of a cave, picking away at a net drawn across it, are two new T-Dolls, and boy do they look distinctive!
[19:41] <~> G-36 and her younger sister G36c seem to be busy!
[19:42] * G36 is removing bats one by one from the net.
[19:42] * G36c is carefully putting them into a cage, making sure none get away.
[19:45] <G36> We stirred up a lot of bats just for these few specimens.
[19:45] <G36c> ^___^
[19:48] * G36c and G36 take the cage away from the mouth of the cage, to where a VERY FAMILIAR person is sitting patiently!!
[19:48] *** Chibi-Nat [SilentSorceress@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:48] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Nat
[19:52] <Chibi-Nat> :D
[19:53] * Chibi-Nat watches as G36 and G36c set the cage down and start shaking up the cage of bats, causing them to squeak and squeal even LOUDER.
[19:57] <Chibi-Nat> What are you doing that for?
[19:57] * G36 is holding a microphone up to the cage.
[19:57] <G36> I'm trying to record their sound.
[19:58] <G36> Now hush.
[19:58] * G36c notices a car pull up. It's DeForest Kelley folks!!!
[20:00] <G36> Why don't you take her down to meet our guest?
[20:01] * G36c takes hold of Nata's hand and leads her down the path. "Our little one shows a precocious interest in zoology and all you can say is "hush"."
[20:02] * G36 goes back to shaking the bats. And grinning a little.
[20:04] * DeForest Kelley (deepfake) walks up.
[20:05] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> How are you G36c?
[20:05] <G36c> Very good. And you?
[20:05] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Fine, thank you.
[20:06] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Good morning, G36!
[20:06] <G36> SILENCE!!!!
[20:08] <G36> Hab angst, du fliegende nagetiere!!!!!
[20:09] *** The bats REALLY start to freak out at the sheer VOLUME of yelling G36 is doing!
[20:09] <G36c> ^__^;
[20:09] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> :/
[20:09] <Chibi-Nat> :o
[20:11] <G36> Do you hear it? THAT is the cry of fear! If we can just chase them away with that sound of fear, we'll be able to control their entire flight.
[20:11] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> What do you plan to do with them then?
[20:12] <G36> By introducing them into areas infested with mosquitoes they'll be able to do the same job DDT does with none of the side effects.
[20:13] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> Which brings me to why I came here. UMP-45, she's a rancher about 50 miles north of here. She's really got a problem.
[20:14] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> She's got an Outback Kit explosion. She's fighting like the Devil to keep them out of her land, but they're eating the range out from underneath her cattle.
[20:15] <G36c> Doesn't that mean they'll be going for her cattle next?
[20:16] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> UMP-45 is on your side. She's trying to avoid poison. The other ranchers would rather bomb the whole area with heavy ordinance.
[20:17] <G36c> Oh crap, are Skorpion and HK416 some of those other ranchers?
[20:17] <G36> All right then. We'd better take a run up there this weekend.
[20:18] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> I'd rather you did it today.
[20:19] *** The scene switches again at WARP FACTOR FIVE!!! Everyone is in a station wagon and are driving into the UMP Ranch!
[20:19] *** Chibi-Nat and G36c are both looking out the window as the scene taking place before them!
[20:22] *** Dozens of Outback Kits are SWARMING at the fences, trying to get inside! Various T-Dolls are trying to hold the line as the Foxes refuse to back down or retreat. Guns are being fired FREQUENTLY, Stunt-plushies™ are falling over every second, and anguished howls and shrieks are filling the air!
[20:22] <G36c> :O
[20:22] <Chibi-Nat> :<
[20:22] <Chibi-Nat> Noooooooooo! I like foxes!!! T_____T
[20:24] <G36c> I know, little one. But those are the American World War 2 T-Dolls and they've all been drinking since sun-up!
[20:27] *** The scene continues on for a full minute, showing Foxes dashing back and forth to the sound of sporadic gunfire, frequent screaming, and OH GOD THEY'VE PULLED DOWN M3 AND ARE SWARMING ALL OVER HER!!
[20:29] <M1897> Girl down! GIRL DOWN!!!
[20:29] * M1897 starts rapid-firing her shotgun!! The Outback Foxes are giving as good as they're getting!!!
[20:31] *** The scene switches again. Everyone's parked, and G36 is inspecting several "captive" Foxes who are all inside several cages.
[20:31] <G36> o___o
[20:31] <Random Outback Fox> :P
[20:38] <G36> Out here in the Southwest, these Foxes are called "Fluffy Loggers". THESE aren't native to this region. What happened?
[20:39] <UMP-45> I don't know. They migrated here from somewhere else. They're more aggressive than anything I've ever seen before.
[20:40] <UMP-45> I heard that Australia and New Zealand were hit by plagues of foxes a long time ago. How did they get rid of those?
[20:41] <G36> ...They used poison for one thing, but the poison also killed the birds. That resulted in a plague of grasshoppers just as bad as the foxes. And the surviving Outback Foxes developed an immunity.
[20:42] <G36> After that, whole regions of Australia's Outback were lost to them. I've heard stories of whole gangs of Outback Foxes roaming the countryside out there, terrorizing whole communities.
[20:43] <G36> The only person holding them back was a single man with a one-sleeved leather jacket, a leg brace, and an Australian cattle-dog driving around in a V8 Interceptor
[20:46] <UMP-45> If I tried using poison, I'd have to pull my cattle off the range and I'd have to put them on the market at the WORST possible time of the year.
[20:46] <G36> I have an idea that might help.
[20:46] <UMP-45> What?
[20:46] <G36> Hormones.
[20:47] <G36> Which would interrupt their breeding cycle and affect their metabolism. Or a disease that would affect only the foxes.
[20:48] <G36c> Let's take a few dozen of these captive foxes you have.
[20:48] <G36c> We'll then run some tests and begin examining them.
[20:48] <G36c> Then trespass in God's Domain and experiment on them!
[20:49] <UMP-45> Take as many as you want. We've got plenty!
[20:49] * UMP-45 helps the G36 sisters carry several cages of Outback Foxes towards their station wagon.
[20:50] *** Meanwhile, Chibi-Nat is sitting on a fence next to UMP-9 as she grooms and brushes a horse.
[20:50] <Chibi-Nat> :D
[20:50] <UMP-9> You like horses?
[20:50] * Chibi-Nat nods! "I wish I had a pony!"
[20:51] <UMP-9> We use horses around here to help keep an eye on the cattle. Would you like me to take you riding later?
[20:51] <Chibi-Nat> Sure! :D
[20:57] * UMP-45 suddenly yelps and flails around in the background, with an Outback Kit clamped FIRMLY to the front of her face!!
[21:02] *** The scene jump-cuts AGAIN (denying you all a resolution on what happened with the Outback Kit). G36 is now somewhere inside a building, walking along with....WA-2000!!
[21:03] <WA-2000> Hormone treatments?
[21:03] <WA-2000> Do you honestly think that will work?
[21:04] <UMP-45> It's worth a shot. Otherwise, these foxes are going to continue to run rampant. Poisoning them would be disastrous, and I don't think a massive hunting campaign will work either.
[21:04] <UMP-45> They're devious little things.
[21:04] <WA-2000> Well...keep me posted.
[21:05] * G36 goes inside one of the rooms, while WA-2000 continues walking on.
[21:06] *** Chibi-Nat and G36c are already inside. One whole wall of the room is taken up with small metal cages like something from an animal shelter. All of them are filled with Outback Kits.
[21:06] <Chibi-Nat> What's a "control group?"
[21:07] <G36c> Well, they get the same care as the others but they don't get any of the medicines.
[21:08] * G36c looks inside one of the cages and is suddenly surprised!
[21:08] *** The two Outback Foxes inside the cage look a LOT bigger than normal.
[21:09] * G36 rushes over to investigate closely.
[21:09] <Chibi-Nat> What's the matter with them?
[21:09] <G36c> ...Well.
[21:10] <G36c> We were trying to make Jill a little more like Jack and Jack a little more like Jill so they wouldn't keep having such large families.
[21:10] <G36> And shoot them full of hormones without sending their nervous systems into shock.
[21:11] <G36> It could mean MONTHS developing the right lab procedure.
[21:12] <G36> Nothing seems to work.
[21:14] * G36 gets a syringe and a test tube filled with a dark brown liquid.
[21:15] <G36> On the other hand, here's something I know they've never been exposed to before. Someone at the Public Health Department sent it over this morning.
[21:15] <G36> Bring me one of the clean foxes please.
[21:15] * G36c goes over to get one of the Foxes.
[21:16] * G36c brings it over to G36, who injects it with the mystery serum!
[21:16] <Outback Kit> @__@
[21:17] <G36> I wish I knew what the effects of this serum would be. Let's hope it works.
[21:17] <G36> Certain birth defects will cause hereditary changes.
[21:18] <G36c> Will it transmit to other foxes?
[21:18] <G36> I should hope so.
[21:18] <G36> With this substance, if we can infect the blood of 50 foxes...
[21:19] <G36> won't take long for the change to take place in the entire population.
[21:20] *** The phone rings, and G36 goes over to answer it. After a few seconds, she calls G36c over as well.
[21:20] * Chibi-Nat is left alone in the room.
[21:22] * Chibi-Nat opens the cage where the Sisters put the newly-injected fox and swaps the fox with a DIFFERENT cage, putting the occupant of the second cage into the first one.
[21:22] <Chibi-Nat> >:3
[21:24] <G36> It's UMP-45, 36c. The Foxes at the ranch are getting meaner and hungrier. The other ranchers are mobilizing to take action. We have to maintain tight control of these subjects. We can't let any of them out until we know what the new serum does to them.
[21:25] <G36c> We do we go back?
[21:25] <G36> Right now. Let's get ready to go.
[21:26] <Chibi-Nat> You said I could keep one. :<
[21:27] <G36> Well, they all DO seem to get along with you much more easily. Go ahead and take one from the Control Group cages.
[21:27] * Chibi-Nat goes over and takes the Outback Fox she secretly swapped. It's the one that got the Special Serum!
[21:27] <Chibi-Nat> :O
[21:27] <Chibi-Nat> :D
[21:28] <Serum Fox > @___@
[18:04] *** The movie projector starts to cycle up. GETTING READY FOR MOVIE SIGN!
[18:06] *** The scene continues where last night left off, with G36 and G36c helping UMP-45 unload fox after fox after fox off of her pickup truck and into multiple trash cans and boxes.
[18:06] <The Outback Foxes> :< :< :< :< :< :<
[18:07] * Chibi-Nat is walking with UMP-9, who looks quite upset.
[18:08] <Chibi-Nat> My little fox isn't a bad fox! >:(
[18:08] <UMP-9> I don't care! You get that little troublemaker out of here or I won't be your friend! >:f
[18:09] <Serum Fox> @___@
[18:09] <Chibi-Nat> No! He's a good boy! I won't get rid of him!
[18:10] <UMP-9> I don't care! GIT!!
[18:11] * UMP-9 grabs Serum Fox and tosses him forward, grabbing onto Nata so she can't chase after him.
[18:11] <Serum Fox > /EM scampers away and quickly vanishes down a foxhole.
[18:12] <UMP-9> Those dang foxes killed all of our chickens last night! And they nearly dragged away BAR while she was asleep too!
[18:15] <Chibi-Nat> :(
[18:15] <UMP-9> ...I'm sorry, little Nata.
[18:15] <Chibi-Nat> Don't tell G36 that he ran away.
[18:16] <UMP-9> ...Okay, you can tell them I'm keeping him for you.
[18:18] *** The scene JUMP-CUTS again and we're back inside the lab, with the camera focusing on a cage on a desk in the foreground. Inside a two Outback Foxes, and one of them is SIGNIFICANTLY larger than the other...and has a weird, tweaked-out expression on its face.
[18:18] <G36> Since the injections, the fox has increased in size. If this keeps up we'll have to keep them in larger cages.
[18:19] * G36c is weighing a small baby fox. Apparently some time has passed since the previous scene.
[18:19] <G36c> In another week or so these won't be babies any more. This new generation is growing rapidly.
[18:20] <G36> Neither will the ones at the UMP ranch.
[18:21] <G36> Those babies will be coming out of their dens soon and starting the next generation.
[18:21] <G36c> You'd better call them then. If she's going to poison those fields, she'd better do it now.
[18:23] <G36> I'm going to warn her. If she poisons the whole lot of them, she'll kill off all the other animals. It won't be long and then she'll have nothing left but unredeemable wasteland.
[18:25] *** Meanwhile, back at the UMP Ranch...the T-Dolls are on a field of scrubby dry grass next to a dirt road. UMP-45 is with KAR-98 and AN-94 as various other T-Dolls (including the Heavy Ordinance Girls) are either assembling their weapons or spreading gasoline all OVER the place!
[18:26] *** In fact, some of the girls seem to be enjoying pouring gasoline onto the ground by the GALLON.
[18:27] * The Outback Kits observe from a distance away, driven back by the literal RIVER of petroleum soaking into the soil.
[18:28] <KAR-98> If this doesn't work, UMP-45, I swear I'll send my planes over your land.
[18:29] <UMP-45> ...What, the Luftwaffe?! To bomb them?
[18:29] <KAR-98> NO, I'll have my cropdusters loaded with cyanide.
[18:31] <UMP-45> Look, in two months from now, everything north of here will be eaten out. In the meantime, there's going to be a burned out strip nearly a mile wide. Between my property and everything south, there won't be a bush, a blade of grass, or a drop of water.
[18:32] <KAR 98 > I still think poisoning is the better way to do it.
[18:33] <AN-94> Hey, 45 here is sacrificing her land to starve them out naturally. 45...any help you need on replanting or anything, you call on me.
[18:35] <UMP-45> Thanks. I appreciate that.
[18:36] * The Outback Kits watch angrily as the T-Dolls gather into a firing line and ready their weapons.
[18:37] <The Outback Kits> The whole world is watching! The whole world is watching! The whole world is watching!
[18:38] * The T-Dolls OPEN FIRE!! They unleash a continuous barrage of full-auto fire while the Heavy Ordinance Girls begin firing a steady stream of mortar shells and automatic grenades into the fields!
[18:39] *** The field EXPLODES into a sea of fire that spreads so quickly that within a minute the entire mile-wide strip of land UMP-45 mentioned is ignited! With the mortars and grenades hitting it looks like a series of small volcanoes erupting!
[18:41] *** Steg-44, FN-FAL, AN-94, Skorpion, and a few of the other T-Dolls start firing (or throwing) grenades too!
[18:42] * The Outback Kits flee in terror as the flames and explosions rapidly overtake their areas!! Some of them even get their tails caught on fire!!!!
[18:42] <The Outback Kits> ABOOOOS!! ABOOOS!!! WE CALL LAWYERS!!!!
[18:48] *** The scene switches AGAIN, with no indication of how much time (if any) has passed). DeForest Kelley, G36, and G36c are riding along the plains towards a small watering hole.
[18:49] *** UMP-45 is with them too, and UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat are in the background.
[18:50] <UMP-45> This was the first range land to get eaten clean. So I figured it would be the first area to start growing back.
[18:50] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> There's not all that much left. Those foxes must have been pretty thorough.
[18:51] <G36> It's how they operate. They'll eventually come right back here once the other areas they're in are picked clean.
[18:52] * G36c leads her horse over to the water, then stops and looks down at something on the ground.
[18:52] <G36c> Hmm, take a look at this.
[18:52] <G36c> What kind of a track is that?
[18:53] *** Everyone comes over to look at it.
[18:53] <DeForest Kelley (deepfake)> I've never seen anything like it.
[18:55] <UMP-45> It's huge. It's got a couple of cow prints in it. Look at how deep it is...whatever made this must have been big.
[18:55] * UMP-45 points at the paw print that looks like it came from some kind of dog, but has retractable claws similar to a cat. Hmmmmmmmmm....
[18:56] <G36> A mountain lion? Maybe a coyote?
[18:57] <UMP-45> Heavier. Whatever made this print must have been over a hundred pounds.
[18:59] *** Meanwhile, the camera focuses on UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat, who are both riding horses.
[18:59] <UMP-9> Are you having fun, little Nata? ^___^
[19:00] <Chibi-Nat> Yuppa!!
[19:00] <UMP-9> Tired?
[19:00] <Chibi-Nat> Nope! =^ ^=
[19:01] <UMP-9> I have an idea. Let's go meet a friend of mine: G-11! She's got a gold mine in those hills right over there.
[19:01] <UMP-9> I checked with your sisters and they say it's okay to go.
[19:02] <Chibi-Nat> Has your friend found any gold yet? :D
[19:03] <UMP-9> She hasn't found anything yet, but she says she will one day. Come on! Let's go!
[19:03] * UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat start to ride away.
[19:05] * UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat do a slow-fade into a new scene where they ride up to a tiny cabin sat near the entrance to what looks like an abandoned mine.
[19:07] * UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat dismount from the horses. Wow, Chibi-Nat's moving quite easily off of that horse. She's gotten good at horseback riding.
[19:08] <UMP-9> G11?
[19:09] <UMP-9> Are you here, G11?
[19:09] * UMP-9 and Chibi-Nat approach the open door of the cabin. No one seems to be around.
[19:10] <UMP-9> ...
[19:11] * UMP-9 looks inside. The interior is basically a single room with a cot, a store, a shoddy set of shelves holding a few cans of meat stew, and an open backpack containing several issues of Japanese manga. And G11's distinctive hat is on the pillow, but the small, narcoleptic T-Doll is nowhere to be seen.
[19:12] <UMP-9> Nata. You go into the tunnel. See if you can find her. I'm going to look around out here. Go on!
[19:13] * Chibi-Nat dashes towards the entrance of the mine and goes inside.
[19:16] * UMP-9 continues to look inside the shed. The shelves suddenly fall off the wall as UMP-9 accidentally brushes against them, the cans clattering against several EMPTY cans of stew that all looked like they EXPLODED.
[19:16] * Chibi-Nat has gone inside the mine. "G11? Where are you? G11?"
[19:17] * Chibi-Nat perks her ears up as she hears something shuffling around in the darkness ahead.
[19:18] * Chibi-Nat looks ahead and sees...!
[19:18] *** G11 is lying on the ground, covered in thick "ketchup" and sprawled on her back with her eyes closed and her tongue hanging out in an exaggerated "death" expression!
[19:21] * Chibi-Nat starts screaming like crazy as she seems what ELSE is around G11!!!
[19:23] *** Several BIG Outback Kits are lurking in the shadows...and one of them is nibbling on G11!!! The Kits are all almost human-sized, with goofy, tweaked expressions on their leering faces!!
[19:24] <Kumihos> @__@ @__@@__@
[19:25] * The Kumihos make goofy, weird expressions as the camera zooms in close on them. Are they trying to be menacing here?
[19:26] * UMP-9 hears Nata screaming and rushes inside to get to her!
[19:26] * The Kumihos grab G11 and slowly drag her deeper into the mine.
[19:32] *** The scene fades out, then fades back in to little Natalia lying in a bed somewhere else.

[19:38] <~Eirin Yagokoro > She'll be okay. Just a mild case of shock.
[19:41] <~Eirin Yagokoro > Just let her rest.
[19:41] * ~Eirin Yagokoro heads out.
[19:42] <G36c> Thank you Doctor.
[19:42] * G36c sits down next to Nata, while UMP-9, UMP-45, and G36 move in closer to each other.
[19:43] <UMP-45> You were inside G11's shack when you heard Natalia screaming?
[19:43] <UMP-9> Yeah. I ran out to get her. She was just coming out of the mine shaft yelling bloody murder.
[19:44] <G36> Did you see anything else? Anything at all?
[19:44] <UMP-9> I don't know. There was something else moving around inside, but I couldn't make anything out.
[19:49] <UMP-9> Everything happened to fast.
[19:50] <G36c> She couldn't have imagined anything like that. She's too sensible.
[19:50] <Chibi-Nat> Daddy...!
[19:50] <Chibi-Nat> DADDY!!!!! T___T
[19:51] * Chibi-Nat suddenly sits up, and quickly hugs everyone tightly for reassurance. T___T
[19:51] *** The scene switches to road at night, out in the middle of nowhere. A lone delivery truck is rumbling along.
[19:52] *** For some reason the truck pulls over to the side of the road and slows to a halt.

[19:55] * Reisen Udongein Inaba gets a flashlight and walks back to the cargo container. She unlatches the doors and opens them up to inspect the contents for a few seconds. She's carrying a full load of packaged meats, cans of beef stew, and gallon-cans of Prego spaghetti sauce.
[20:00] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> ...
[20:00] * Reisen Udongein Inaba slows down as she hears something rumbling and stumbling around in the darkness around her.
[20:01] * Reisen Udongein Inaba shines her flashlight around.
[20:05] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Is someone out there?
