[18:54] * Ran Mihara starts to realize...recalling how all the other students seem to get older and leave the school..but she and Claire remained the same
[18:54] <BluSky_Caprice> out of concern..I started to do some digging......
[18:54] <BluSky_Caprice> ....Ran..I don't know how to tell you this

[20:25] <Mercurius Shin> ....one of the most dangerious places in the entire Solar System
[20:26] <Devyen> I still can't fathom any reason you would need to go there...my mother...she was there and she...told us things about the vaults...
[20:27] <Capt. David O`Cain> Like what?
[20:28] <Mercurius Shin> the vaults is where the secrets of Mercury are hidden
[20:29] <Mercurius Shin> ...the darkest of them
[20:30] <Devyen> My mother spoke of horrific creatures...possibly muttions or worse.
[20:32] * Capt. David O`Cain nods, "Gotcha."
[20:32] <Ran Yakumo> Can't be worse than anything we deal with in Gensokyo on a regular basis.
[20:36] <Mercurius Shin> ......
[20:36] <Mercurius Shin> alright

[20:38] *** the landscape is as you've seen of Mercury.....a vast icy waste...in the distance you can see the firey mountains blazing away
[20:40] <Capt. David O`Cain> Been a good while since I was here last.
[20:40] * Mercurius Shin starts to walk along the icy ground......
[20:40] <Mercurius Shin> that's why I brought you along, david
[20:40] <Mercurius Shin> ..you're one of the few who's been the vaults..and lived
[20:41] <Devyen> I've...never actually visited. Queen Maia never really...entertained children.
[20:42] <Mercurius Shin> she is not the most..open hearted woman
[20:42] <Capt. David O`Cain> No kidding. She's VERY cold.
[20:44] * Mercurius Shin looks around..and heads towards an outcrop of frozen rock
[20:44] * Capt. David O`Cain looks around as he continues to follow Mercurius
[20:45] <Mercurius Shin> the only reason i'm here is because of her....
[20:45] * Mercurius Shin feels around the rock...and finds a hatch and pulls it open!
[20:45] <Mercurius Shin> ..alright..everyone ready to go in?
[20:46] <Devyen> The queen ordered you to come the vaults?
[20:46] <Mercurius Shin> more or less >_>
[20:46] <Devyen> But...she knows how dangerous it is...why send you here?
[20:47] <Mercurius Shin> familel pride....
[20:48] * Mercurius Shin starts to climb down the hole
[20:48] * Capt. David O`Cain climbs down the hole after Mercurius

[20:50] *** the hole is dark..and tight and STOP SNICKERING...I CAN HEAR YOU IN THE BACK
[20:53] * Mercurius Shin reaches the bottom..........
[20:54] <Mercurius Shin> ......
[20:54] <Mercurius Shin> ..anyone have a light?
[20:54] <Ran Yakumo> :D
[20:55] * Ran Yakumo holds up a hand and a strangely-colored fire springs to light.
[20:55] <Ran Yakumo> Will this help?
[20:55] *** the light reveals a room covered in dark circutiry, vein like cords...there's a feeling as if the space is almost..alive
[20:55] <Mercurius Shin> yes...
[20:55] <Mercurius Shin> David?
[20:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah?
[20:56] * Mercurius Shin looks around
[20:57] *** the room has four doors..one on each side
[20:57] <Mercurius Shin> ...which why do we go?
[20:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hmmm. Let's try south (points in the indicated direction).
[20:59] <Mercurius Shin> alright....
[21:00] * Mercurius Shin walks through the door..which leads down a long hallway
[21:00] * Devyen follows closely to Mercurius
[21:01] * Capt. David O`Cain gets out a pair of disc lights, and puts one on his chestplate while the other goes on his helmet
[21:03] * Mercurius Shin tries to ignore the..uneasy feeling around the place...
[21:05] *** the hall leads to another room...which seems pretty bright......
[21:05] * Mercurius Shin looks around
[21:05] <Capt. David O`Cain> Whoa...
[21:05] <Mercurius Shin> !!!!!
[21:05] * Mercurius Shin RUNS OVER!
[21:05] <Mercurius Shin> I..i found it
[21:05] <Mercurius Shin> I FOUND IT
[21:05] <Devyen> Mercurius, wait up!
[21:06] * Mercurius Shin holds out a small box!
[21:06] <Mercurius Shin> Devyen..I found it!
[21:06] <Capt. David O`Cain> That's it?
[21:06] <Devyen> What is it?
[21:06] *** David, in a corner, there is pieces of discarded armor in a pile...they're far superior to the armor you have!
[21:07] <Mercurius Shin> ..now I can finally make this official, Devyen!
[21:07] * Capt. David O`Cain goes over to the corner, "What the...?"
[21:08] *** there is also a Mercurian Phase Gun..a rare find
[21:08] <Mercurius Shin> ...the ring..i found..I found the ring, Devyen
[21:08] <Devyen> She sent you here for a ring?
[21:08] <Mercurius Shin> yes...yes she did
[21:09] *** Devyen roll 1d10
[21:09] <Mercurius Shin> but I FOUND IT
[21:09] <Mercurius Shin> I DIDN'T NEED TO TRAVEL ANY FURTHER FOR IT
[21:09] <Capt. David O`Cain> (Whoa. What is this gear?)
[21:10] <Devyen> I'm...happy for you. So can we leave this place?
[21:11] <Mercurius Shin> There might be something else i can bring her..something that can make things better
[21:11] <spiritflame> Devyen rolls 1d10 [ 1 ]
[21:12] * Mercurius Shin starts to dig around the room...
[21:12] <Mercurius Shin> I.I think I found a bracelet!
[21:12] *** Devyen, there's a rare book sitting in the corner....hell...it's one that has been missing from the saturnian collection!
[21:12] * Capt. David O`Cain takes the helmet, and starts comparing it with his
[21:12] <Devyen> I think we should leave...?
[21:13] * Devyen walks over to the book...
[21:14] *** the helmet is much more superior and looks like it could provide better protection
[21:14] *** another chance, Devyen..roll 1d10
[21:15] <Capt. David O`Cain> This is incredible...
[21:15] <spiritflame> Devyen rolls 1d10 [ 5 ]
[21:16] <Devyen> Why is this here? I don't recall Mercury frequenting the Royal Saturnian library...?
[21:16] *** Devyen..your brain starts to scream with warning signals
[21:16] <Mercurius Shin> I think I've found an entire treasure trove!
[21:16] * Devyen grabs the sides of his head and stumbles back from the book...
[21:18] *** roll 1d5, Devyen for vision check
[21:19] <spiritflame> Devyen rolls 1d10 [ 8 ]
[21:20] *** Devyen you are suddenly aware....it feels like you're restricted.....even though you're moving?...
[21:21] * Devyen tries to shake his head. "Augh! Ah! E-everyone...I think...we should leave this room!"
[21:21] <Mercurius Shin> Devyen! I could buy a whole kingdom with these!
[21:21] <Capt. David O`Cain> What's wrong, Devyen?
[21:21] *** David...there's an MKA gauntlet in the pile...you could replace your own and it would give you far more energy!
[21:22] <Devyen> S...something is wrong in here!
[21:22] *** Devyen...is something pulsating against your neck?
[21:23] * Devyen triest to reach his neck
[21:26] *** Devyen, your hands are pinned....
[21:26] * Mercurius Shin laughs to himself in joy..thinking of how he'll give all this to Ami
[21:26] *** one more roll, Devyen...roll 1d10
[21:27] <spiritflame> Devyen rolls 1d10 [ 10 ]
[21:27] * Capt. David O`Cain has the gauntlet in his hand as he turns to Devyen
[21:28] *** Devyen..you fully snap out of it......the room is dark...dismel....and you and the others are pinned to the wall by metallic organic tenticles....one is attached to your neck..though it's come loose....David and Mercurius are still pinned to the wall the same.....though they don't seem to have snapped out of it like you
[21:30] * Devyen goes into a full panic mode, unleashing a powerful psychokinetic outburst while screaming frantically!
[21:34] *** the attack SHREDS the tenticles...freeing both Mercurius and David
[21:34] *** as well as yourself, devyen
[21:34] * Mercurius Shin falls to the ground ><
[21:35] <Mercurius Shin> ughhhh my head ><
[21:35] * Capt. David O`Cain falls down, "Ughhhh. The hell happened?"
[21:36] *** there is metallic screeching from the wall, as the destroyed tenticles flail!
[21:36] * Devyen is shuddering against the wall....
[21:36] <Mercurius Shin> th..the ring!
[21:36] <Mercurius Shin> where's the ring!?
[21:37] <Mercurius Shin> where is it!?
[21:37] <Devyen> We need to go! We need to go! We need to go!
[21:37] <Mercurius Shin> I need to find the ring!!!
[21:37] <Devyen> THERE WAS NO RING! THIS WAS A TRAP!
[21:37] *** there's no sign of the ring..or the armor..or the books...just the hideous horrfying room
[21:37] <Mercurius Shin> IT CAN'T BE
[21:38] *** there is a door on the oppisite end, leading to another hallway
[21:38] <Capt. David O`Cain> How did we fall for it? >_<
[21:39] * Devyen gets up, and using his psychokinesis, picks up both Mercurius and David in his panic, and runs out that door, "dragging" them behind him!
[21:40] <Mercurius Shin> w..wait..the ring..the ring!
[21:40] *** the hallway leads to another room..which has a ladder going down to the next level
[21:40] * Devyen starts checking his neck once he is out in the hallway!
[21:41] *** there is a small wound but it's already healing
[21:41] <Devyen> Oh spirits...oh ancestors...
[21:42] * Devyen calms down enough that he drops Mercurius and David.
[21:42] <Mercurius Shin> ....what happened...
[21:42] <Devyen> We...we were trapped...back there.
[21:43] <Capt. David O`Cain> How...?
[21:43] <Mercurius Shin> and why didn't it affect you, devyen?
[21:44] <Devyen> I...I was...but...I...something...I sensed something.
[21:45] <Devyen> THe more I sensed it...the more I woke up?
[21:45] <Mercurius Shin> ....maybe it tapped into our psychic powers......
[21:45] <Mercurius Shin> and yours was not strong enough for it to affect you?
[21:46] <Devyen> Well...maybe? Telepathy was never my strongest ability.
[21:46] <Mercurius Shin> ...thank you, Devyen
[21:47] <Capt. David O`Cain> Now I feel like a moron. ~_~
[21:47] <Devyen> But there must have been something else that made us...hallucinate so the trap would catch us?
[21:47] <Mercurius Shin> we..should keep moving
[21:47] <Mercurius Shin> ....it's this place
[21:47] <Mercurius Shin> .....it's full of.....experiments
[21:48] * Devyen nods and follows Mercurius
[21:48] * Mercurius Shin climbs down the hole
[21:50] * Capt. David O`Cain follows the others
[21:52] *** the ladder leads down to another room......this one is just as grim as the others...there are signs of disused eletronics...smashed large transparent tubes......partially frozen machinery
[21:52] <Devyen> ...
[21:53] <Devyen> I don't like this place...not at all...
[21:53] <Mercurius Shin> ...even the royality avoided this place
[21:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Maia, what were you up to down here?
[21:54] <Mercurius Shin> ....I don't even want to know
[21:55] * Mercurius Shin spots another door to the west
[21:55] <Mercurius Shin> ...shall we keep going
[21:55] <Mercurius Shin> no what am i saying
[21:55] <Mercurius Shin> we have to
[21:56] * Capt. David O`Cain uses his lights to light the way as best he can
[21:56] <Devyen> If we must...let's hurry before we get caught in something again.
[21:57] * Mercurius Shin walks down the hall...the halls are like the same...cold...impassionate.......metallic...your steps echo
[22:00] * Mercurius Shin suddenly stops
[22:00] * Devyen bumps into Mercurius!
[22:01] *** the hallway goes on in front of you..but to your immediate left..it also branches off
[22:02] * Capt. David O`Cain looks down the hallway to the left
[22:03] <Mercurius Shin> ...which way do we go, David
[22:05] <Mercurius Shin> ..david?
[22:06] * Mercurius Shin looks over to David
[22:08] <Capt. David O`Cain> A bit hesitant to see what's down this hall (points to the left hallway).
[22:08] <Capt. David O`Cain> Lord knows if that's trapped as well.
[22:08] *** the left hall keeps going on....and does look like it ends in another room
[22:10] * Capt. David O`Cain examines the left hall with the flashlights as he carefully walks in that direction
[22:11] *** as you walk over, David....you find a HUGE room.....which is filled with disused and abandoned junk
[22:11] <Devyen> Should we follow him?
[22:11] <Mercurius Shin> ..probably
[22:12] * Mercurius Shin follows after David
[22:12] * Capt. David O`Cain stays in the doorway as he looks over the room
[22:13] *** there are broken and torn texts on the ground...shattered weapons....objects of all sorts....
[22:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> I wonder if this was some kind of weapons forge (tries to look at some of the text).
[22:14] *** the torn texts are all matter litrature...all in Mercurian of course
[22:15] *** in one pile..is a half buried painting
[22:15] * Capt. David O`Cain does his best to ensure the room is not trapped before entering
[22:16] * Devyen walks over and pulls the painting out of the rubble.
[22:18] *** the painting is half finished...you can see the Princess of Mercury seated, smiling...a man has his hand on her shoulder...but his face is unfinished and not painted in
[22:20] <Mercurius Shin> Devyen? what do you have there?
[22:21] * Mercurius Shin walks over..and freezes at the sight of the picture
[22:21] <Mercurius Shin> .....
[22:23] <Mercurius Shin> ..oh six...
[22:23] * Mercurius Shin walks over and touches the painting
[22:23] <Capt. David O`Cain> Huh?
[22:24] <Devyen> This was...from the original engagement
[22:26] <Capt. David O`Cain> Whoa...
[22:26] <Mercurius Shin> ...yes....
[22:27] <Mercurius Shin> ...it was meant to be our wedding painting
[22:27] <Mercurius Shin> ...I spent..most of my existance..in the back of Matsuo's mind...
[22:27] <Mercurius Shin> ...but the moment..the moment I saw her
[22:27] * Mercurius Shin places his hand gently on the princess of mercury in the picture
[22:27] <Mercurius Shin> ....I loved her..so much
[22:27] <Mercurius Shin> ..I had to be with her
[22:27] * Capt. David O`Cain looks at the broken weaponry for a bit
[22:28] <Devyen> While you were within Matsuo? All the way back then?
[22:29] <Mercurius Shin> ...yes
[22:30] <Mercurius Shin> ...it's why I decided to do the one...the one terrible thing in my life
[22:30] <Mercurius Shin> ...I supressed Matsuo and took over his body
[22:30] <Devyen> ...that...explains alot...
[22:31] <Mercurius Shin> ..i was so happy.....we were happy
[22:31] <Mercurius Shin> the day of the marrage.....I thought I finally had everything
[22:31] * Mercurius Shin looks to Devyen "...but you helped me remind myself of the truth"
[22:32] <Devyen> I did?
[22:32] * Capt. David O`Cain also sees if he can take some of the text to take back with him
[22:32] *** the texts are in a horrible state..but you can try
[22:34] * Mercurius Shin nods
[22:34] * Capt. David O`Cain pulls out a folder from his dimensional closet, puts a few pages in the folder, and then goes back to the broken weapons to see what they might have been
[22:34] <Mercurius Shin> ...you told me how my actions frightened you...how i wasn't..acting like myself
[22:35] <Mercurius Shin> .....I realized how selfish I had been..to take his life away from him.....force him into something that wasn't his choice
[22:35] <Mercurius Shin> ......that's why I released control that night
[22:35] <Mercurius Shin> ...and had to watch as he panicked..and immediatly end the marrage
[22:36] <Devyen> I...didn't realize. I just thought Matsuo was...
[22:37] <Mercurius Shin> you were right
[22:37] <Mercurius Shin> I was being selfish
[22:37] <Mercurius Shin> ..but I have a second chance to be with her now...and I'm..i'm not going to lose that
[22:38] <Devyen> I am glad you and Matsuo are free to persue your own happiness. :)
[22:39] <Mercurius Shin> ..let's keep moving..there's nothing left here for us
[22:42] * Devyen carries the painting with him
[22:43] * Mercurius Shin leaves the room and retraces back to the hallway
[22:44] * Capt. David O`Cain quickly gets a bag out, and starts putting broken weapon pieces in it before heading out of the room
[22:44] * Devyen follows
[22:46] * Mercurius Shin heads down the hallway....passing into anotehr room..this one has frozen corpses in them...some of them with chunks removed out of them
[22:46] <Mercurius Shin> .......
[22:47] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yikes. Poor ba[BLEEP]rds.
[22:48] <Mercurius Shin> ..we..should keep moving
[22:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah, we oughta.
[22:49] * Mercurius Shin moves up the following hall...and finds another ladder down
[22:50] <Mercurius Shin> .....
[22:50] <Capt. David O`Cain> Into the breech again?
[22:51] * Mercurius Shin nods
[22:52] * Mercurius Shin climbs down the ladder
[22:52] * Devyen climbs down
[22:52] * Capt. David O`Cain heads down the ladder after the other two
[22:53] * Mercurius Shin brushs himself off.....into another room of dead bodies...as well as broken machinery
[22:53] * Devyen sees the dead bodies and is clearly disturbed by this...
[22:53] *** the dead bodies look like they were crawling towards the ladder
[22:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Geez. What did this?
[22:54] <Devyen> I don't like this...
[22:54] <Mercurius Shin> I..don't know
[22:54] <Mercurius Shin> ...I have heard rumors though
[22:54] * Mercurius Shin sees the hallway and moves down it..but stops....
[22:55] <Capt. David O`Cain> What's wrong?
[22:55] *** there is a branch off to the right...as well as one far up ahead to the left
[22:55] <Mercurius Shin> ..which way do we go, David?
[22:55] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hmm. I'm gonna check out what's to the left.
[22:56] * Capt. David O`Cain heads down the hallway, and then goes to his left at the end
[22:56] *** the left branch seems to lead up to a large room...that's pitch black...
[22:57] <Mercurius Shin> ..there were rumors....
[22:57] <Devyen> Rumors?
[22:58] * Capt. David O`Cain shines his lights into the room
[22:59] <Mercurius Shin> the Mercurians experimented on the local wildlife.....
[22:59] <Mercurius Shin> ..looking for ways to adapt them to survive better
[23:00] <Mercurius Shin> ..and apply it to themselves
[23:00] <Mercurius Shin> ...the rumor has it......the failures were dumped here
[23:00] <Mercurius Shin> and survived
[23:00] *** in the dark....glowing eyes suddenly open at david!
[23:00] * Devyen looks at the bodies. "...you think they are..."
[23:01] <Mercurius Shin> ..I don't know.....
[23:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> Wha?
[23:02] *** things..SHRIEK and launch themselves at David!!!
[23:02] <Mercurius Shin> ..what was that noise?
[23:02] * Devyen is startled by the shriek!
[23:02] * Capt. David O`Cain starts firing ball after ball of energy at the things, and starts backpedaling
[23:04] *** the creatures make pained noises but more start to try and chase after david!
[23:04] <Capt. David O`Cain> S[BLEEP]t s[BLEEP]t s[BLEEP]t s[BLEEP]t!
[23:05] <Mercurius Shin> ....ok that doesn't sound good
[23:05] * Capt. David O`Cain runs down the hallway, blasting at the things as he goes
[23:05] <Mercurius Shin> David what's goi....
[23:05] <Mercurius Shin> !!!!!
[23:05] <Devyen> RUN!
[23:06] *** the mass of creatures are...painful to look at it....organics mixed with metal and many of them mutated to point of being unreconizable
[23:06] * Mercurius Shin turns and grabs Devyen..and starts to run down the right hallway!
[23:07] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to the right hallway and keeps on blasting behind him
[23:09] *** the creatures scramble, clawing at each other, clawoing at the doors, trying to reach them...being pushed back every once in awhile by david's blast
[23:09] <Mercurius Shin> RUN RUN RUN
[23:09] * Mercurius Shin stumbles and falls!
[23:10] <Mercurius Shin> GAH!
[23:10] * Capt. David O`Cain quickly grabs Mercurius, picking him up, and keeps running as he fires
[23:10] * Devyen stumbles with him, but manages to keep his feet. He looks back at the raging beasts coming at them...he then concentrates his power...on the walls...floor...and ceiling of the hallway...
[23:12] *** the hallway starts to buckle......and CRUSHES the creatures..but also blocks their way back......
[23:12] <Mercurius Shin> .....Thank you, Devyen
[23:12] <Devyen> With great strain and an agonizing cry, he forces the hallway to collapse inward!
[23:12] <Devyen> (( crap ))
[23:13] <Mercurius Shin> (( LOL its' fine! ))
[23:13] <Mercurius Shin> (( we had the same idea! ))
[23:13] * Devyen falls to his knees from the exertion...
[23:13] <Mercurius Shin> Dev!
[23:13] * Mercurius Shin runs over and tries to help him up!
[23:13] <Capt. David O`Cain> So much for going back the way we came from. Only way now is forward.
[23:14] <Devyen> S...sorry...but...had to...
[23:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> Thanks for stopping them, though.
[23:16] <Mercurius Shin> ...think you might have..overdone it a little
[23:16] *** the hallway behind them is horrible mangled....
[23:17] <Devyen> Sorry, I panicked...
[23:17] * Capt. David O`Cain looks down the hallway as he shines the light around
[23:17] <Mercurius Shin> ..no..it's alright....can you stand?
[23:17] *** the hallway ends in another room..with another ladder leading down
[23:18] * Devyen slowly stands
[23:19] <Mercurius Shin> ....I guess we go forward
[23:20] <Devyen> Let's hurry
[23:22] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah, let's keep moving.
[23:26] * Mercurius Shin climbs down the ladder
[23:26] * Capt. David O`Cain heads over to the room at the end of the hallway
[23:27] * Devyen follows after, still slightly winded
[23:28] *** the ladder leads down..into a MASSIVE room
[23:28] <Capt. David O`Cain> Here we go...
[23:28] <Capt. David O`Cain> This room is like a bunker.
[23:29] *** the room is covered with..smooth metal....it seems to lack the jagged apperence
[23:29] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hmmm...
[23:30] * Mercurius Shin looks around....and spots in the distance...a small box on a platform
[23:30] <Mercurius Shin> ...that's it...THAT'S IT!
[23:31] <Devyen> Mercurius...wait.
[23:31] * Mercurius Shin moves to go forward...
[23:31] *** the ground suddenly shimmers.....as circuts come to life...
[23:31] *** forms suddenly sip up from the floor...forming into humanoid bodies....
[23:31] <Mercurius Shin> !
[23:32] <Capt. David O`Cain> Figures it wouldn't be easy.
[23:32] * Devyen pulls Mercurius back with his psychokinesis!
[23:33] *** the humanoids' apperence refines into......a massive group of Gil Grissoms!!!!
[23:33] * Capt. David O`Cain facefaults, "Really?"
[23:33] <Mercurius Shin> ......
[23:33] <Mercurius Shin> um...
[23:34] * Devyen looks confused...
[23:35] *** the Gil Grissoms surge forward to attack!!!!! Their hyperactive nerdy science is overwhelming!
[23:37] <Mercurius Shin> GAH!
[23:37] * Mercurius Shin dodges before he can be beamed by a box of files!
[23:38] * Two Gils try to tackle Devyen!
[23:38] * Capt. David O`Cain starts firing balls of energy at the Grissoms, "Back, you foul investigators!"
[23:39] * Devyen suddenly shouts; "Enough! Stay away from us!!!" and he throws out his hand to stop the Grissoms with his psychokinesis!
[23:39] * Mercurius Shin tries to struggle through the crowds....
[23:40] * Devyen starts throwing these strange humanoids into the walls and floor!
[23:41] * Mercurius Shin is suddenly grabbed in a strangle hold by several Zonway Ryus, who try to pull him to the ground
[23:41] <Mercurius Shin> g..GET OFF ME
[23:42] * Capt. David O`Cain changes to the Jupiter Upgrade, and starts firing electrical balls at the Grissoms
[23:42] * Devyen starts throwing the Grissoms at the Zonways
[23:43] * Mercurius Shin is freed thanks to Devyen!
[23:43] * Devyen sees they may be overwhelmed and he is starting to tire from using his power. He quickly reaches out and flicks his wrist at the box on the far end of the room...
[23:44] *** the box zooms forward thanks to Devyen's power!
[23:46] <Mercurius Shin> GOOD JOB, DEVYEN!
[23:47] *** the ground suddenly starts to shake.....
[23:47] * Devyen manages to catch it, and backs up against a wall to try and catch his breath
[23:47] <Mercurius Shin> ...great...what now.....
[23:48] * Mercurius Shin is suddenly grabbed by a gigantic hand...as a HUGE form rises up out of the very floor itself....
[23:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> You had to ask!
[23:49] * Devyen stumbles and falls when the floor gives out under them!
[23:49] *** the huge form is unmistakenly....the Princess of Jupiter
[23:49] <Mercurius Shin> GAH!
[23:49] <Devyen> O.O
[23:49] * Mercurius Shin tries to hit the giant woman's fist..but it remains clenched around him
[23:50] * Devyen starts to hyperventilate!
[23:51] * Capt. David O`Cain switches to the Mercury Upgrade, and tries firing spiked balls of ice at the form
[23:52] *** the giant Jupiter just bats the attack away!
[23:52] <Capt. David O`Cain> S[BLEEP]t...
[23:53] <Devyen> P-p-p-pr-prin...cess...J-J-Jupi...ter...?!
[23:53] * Mercurius Shin is SMASHED into Jupiter's Giant....hair balls
[23:54] * Mercurius Shin feels his strength beginning to ebb....
[23:55] * Mercurius Shin is starting to feel hopeless....he is not worthy of his princess....he's starting to feel this was all a mistake...
[23:57] * Capt. David O`Cain is trying his best to get the giant Jovian princess to let Mercurius go
[00:00] * Devyen shakes his head furiously, trying to throw off his anxiety! His power picks up several of the Grissoms and Zonways, and starts to chuck them at Jupiter's face! "I'M SORRY! I'M SORRY! I'M SORRY! I'M SORRY!
[00:00] *** the Giant Jupiter is smacked in the face several times by it!
[00:01] * Mercurius Shin 's eyes happen to fall on the painting from before
[00:01] * Mercurius Shin starts to remember why he's here...why he came....
[00:01] * Mercurius Shin 's own telekinsis flares up..and he bursts up out of the fist...pushing out enough energy to float
[00:01] <Mercurius Shin> GAAAAAAH
[00:02] <Mercurius Shin> THIS HAND OF MINE GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWAAAAAH
[00:03] <Mercurius Shin> IT'S BURNING GRIP TELLS ME TO DEFEAT YOU!

[00:05] *** Giant Jupiter is BLOWN AWAY BY THE MASSIVE POWAHHHHH
[00:07] * Devyen collapses...
[00:08] *** the Gils and Zonways are blown away by Mercurius's massive display!
[00:10] * Mercurius Shin lands....the entire battle field has been cleared
[00:10] *** a small dispaly turns on near David!
[00:11] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh? Where'd this come from?
[00:12] *** there is a hand palm reader on it
[00:12] * Capt. David O`Cain curiously puts his hand upon the palm reader
[00:13] *** The palm reader scans David's hand...and sends a blue glow into it
[00:13] *** Mercury Upgrade - New Upgrade Downloaded: Mercury Upgrade Stage 2
[00:14] * Mercurius Shin goes to check on Devyen
[00:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> Huh. Well, that was interesting.
[00:14] * Devyen sits on the floor against the wall, breathing heavilly and looking very exhausted...
[00:15] * Mercurius Shin puts a hand on Devyen's shoulder
[00:15] <Mercurius Shin> ..thank you
[00:16] * Devyen looks up at Mercurius...and hands him the little box.
[00:16] * Mercurius Shin takes it, smiling but then helps Devyen up
[00:16] <Devyen> I...don't think...I'm cut out for...adventures...
[00:17] <Capt. David O`Cain> You seem to do alright, Devyen.
[00:17] <Mercurius Shin> ...think we better go home
[00:17] <Devyen> Maybe make sure...the ring is in there?
[00:18] <Devyen> Just make sure...that wasn't another elaborate trap?
[00:18] * Mercurius Shin takes the box..and opens it...inside is a brilliant gold ring with a blue jewel in it....mareviously carved to mathmatical precision
[00:19] <Mercurius Shin> *marveliously
[00:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> Let's get outta here. I don't wanna hang around here any longer than needed.
[00:20] * Mercurius Shin notices the other stairs....and braving it...heads up them, bringing Devyen along
[00:21] * Capt. David O`Cain follows Mercurius up the stairs
[00:24] *** the stairs lead back up to the first floor...after getting back into his enviromental suits and making sure the others do too..Mercurius leads everyone back to the ship..and back towards home

[20:12] *** The torpedoes streak towards the platform! IMPACT IMMINANT!!
[20:13] * Naoko and Melione are too busy to notice the attack!
[20:15] *** The torpedoes quickly fire breaking thrusters a few seconds before impact, then strike the platform with loud BANGS as they latch on. Panels on the sides burst open and the occupants leap out.

[20:22] * Melione is distracted...allowing Naoko to bolt towards the surrounding planets...
[20:23] *** oh by the way..the missing planets...they're all HERE now
[20:23] * Naoko Meioh pulls out a cellphone..and unlocks it first.....then has to get the wi-fi..open up the app...scroll through the languages.....

[20:25] * Naoko Meioh runs away from AK-15 comically...even as the planet's surface start to crack apart......an orange glow coming out from under them

[20:33] * Naoko Meioh has been tackled!
[20:33] <Naoko Meioh> IT'S TOO LATE

[20:34] <AK-12> o__o
[20:34] <RPK-16> Oh! Pretty!

[20:37] *** the light lessens and...well..the thing is so massive you can't really make it out
[20:38] <RPK-16> D:
[20:39] * AK-15 aims at Naoko. "WHAT have you unleashed?!"
[20:39] * Naoko Meioh uses the distraction to slip out of 15's grasp and grab her phone!
[20:39] <Melione> !
[20:39] * Melione runs after Naoko and tackles her again, struggling with her
[20:40] <Melione> you can't do this!
[20:40] <Naoko Meioh> this is all I've ever wanted!!!!
[20:40] <Melione> the time line MUST be preserved!
[20:40] <Naoko Meioh> F[BLEEP]K THE TIMELINE IN THE ASS
[20:42] * AK-15 grabs at Naoko again and holds TIGHT. This girl is stronger than SPAS-12!!!!!!!!!!
[20:42] <Melione> it's not our place to change things!
[20:42] * Someone lands near the platform, and carefully aims two heated daggers. The target -- Naoko's phone!
[20:43] <Naoko Meioh> i'm her mother!!!!! you are!
[20:43] <Melione> we're both her and you know it and you know as well as i do she is meant to SUFFER...being Pluto is SUFFERING and THERE'S NOTHING YOU OR I OR ANYONE CAN DO TO CHANGE THAT
[20:45] <Someone> .....I would have to disagree upon that.
[20:46] * AN-94 and AK-12 burst-fire at the phone as well, trying to destroy it.
[20:46] *** JOKES ON YOU..IT'S ONE OF THOSE STEEL BRICK PHONES..THOSE THINGS WITHSTAND ANYTHING
[20:46] * AK-15 tries to put Naoko in a BEARHUG!
[20:46] * Naoko Meioh struggles!
[20:47] * AK-12 and AN-94 are both RUSSIAN. STUPID CAPITALIST BRICK-PHONE CANNOT RESIST!!!
[20:49] * The Dragon stands there..looking down at them
[20:50] * RPK-16 waves to the Dragon
[20:50] <RPK-16> Hello.
[20:50] <Naoko Meioh> LOOK OVER THERE! CAPTALISTS KEEPING THE WORKING CLASS DOWN!
[20:51] <AK-15> I will keep YOU down!
[20:51] * AK-15 goes for the PIN!
[20:52] * AN-94 rushes over to assist, jumping onto Naoko and SLAMMING her.
[20:52] <Naoko Meioh> URK
[20:52] <Naoko Meioh> GAAAAH
[20:52] * Melione winces at that one
[20:53] * Someone gets an idea. She turns her attention to the Dragon. (Now how did that one say to do this.....?)
[20:54] * Naoko Meioh reaches into her pocket..and tries to spray mace into 94's face
[20:55] * AN-94 is sprayed, blinking in surprise and rubbing her eyes. The spray affected her, but not as much as it would an Organic.
[20:55] * AK-12 ZIPS over instead. ^___^
[20:55] * AK-12 goes for the sleeper hold on Naoko!
[20:56] * AK-15 continues with the bearhug! DAMN, her abs are like the unyielding bronze of a Spartan statue!!!!

[20:57] <AN-94> Ack!! What was that substance she sprayed me with? >__<;
[20:57] * RPK-16 is still trying to get the Dragon's attention. "Can we assist you with something?"
[20:58] * AK-12 pulls Naoko down to the ground, kneeling. No...SQUATTING!!!
[20:59] *** Oh crap...SQUATTING??! This can only mean...AK-12 is calling upon the power of HARDBASS!!!!!!!!!!!
[20:59] * Naoko Meioh PUSHES 12 off her!
[20:59] * AK-12 keeps holding on, and AK-15 isn't letting go either!
[21:00] <AK-12> ♫ Welcome to the party! No vodka, this is army! ♫
[21:00] <AK-12> ♫ Don't forget your training! To win you must be squatting! ♫

[21:02] * Melione realizes Naoko isn't going to give up and decides the only way to stop her is to sabotage her and rushes forward!

[21:09] * AK-12 goes for Naoko's mace spray.
[21:10] * AN-94 tries to pour vodka all over Naoko's face and head. Why? Do not question the wisdom of Gopniks and Hardbass!!!
[21:12] * Naoko and Melione both SHOUT into the phone at the same time..trying to get their voices heard over each other!
[21:13] <Someone> (This is going nowhere.....)
[21:14] * Naoko and Melione fight over the phone..and press play as loud as it can
[21:15] *** Another drop pod slams down.
[21:16] *** M4A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:16] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M4A1
[21:16] * M4A1 fires a flare up into the sky, aimed at the Dragon.
[21:17] <Phone> ♦ REHTOM LACIGOLOIB S'HOIEM ANUSTES EB OT TNAW I !!!!!!
[21:17] * the flare barely does anything at the dragon
[21:17] * M4A1 is only trying to get the Dragon's attention, not hurt it.
[21:18] * M4A1 starts using semaphore flags to signal to the dragon.
[21:19] * The Dragon stands there........then says something...
[21:19] <Someone> (...that language.... that must be the key--- but am i too late?)
[21:19] <M4A1> ♦ D-R-A-G-O-N. I W-I-S-H T-O K-N-O-W W-H-O Y-O-U A-R-E.

[21:31] <Melione> I warned you...
[21:31] * Melione is also starting to fade away
[21:32] <Melione> by creating this...you're erasing who you once were from the timeline.........it won't be YOU who experiences this wish
[21:32] <Naoko Meioh> NO NO NO NO NO NO YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME!!!!!
[21:33] * Melione smiles sadly
[21:33] <Melione> it's better this way anyway
[21:33] <Someone> It is as the humans of this time say.... "Be careful what you wish for".
[21:34] <Melione> we had no business being here....
[21:34] * Naoko Meioh angerly sobs as she's fading away
[21:36] * Melione looks to the soldiers of solarchos
[21:36] <Melione> ...thank you for trying to help
[21:37] <Melione> you are so loyal ^^
[21:38] <Melione> farewell....
[21:39] <Naoko Meioh> I DON'T WANT TO GO I DON'T WANT TO G-
[21:39] * Naoko Meioh and Melione completely fade away
[21:39] *** Naoko Meioh has left #suburbansenshi3 (retgonned)
[21:39] *** Melione has left #suburbansenshi3 (retgonned)
[21:39] * The Dragon vanishes....and the planet sized Dragon Balls suddenly ZOOM back out into space
[21:40] <Someone> .........her friends will not be pleased to know of this.
[21:45] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> can I just go home T_T
[21:45] <Someone> I would say yes... does that ship still function?
[21:49] * Someone heads over to the stolen ship. It might take a few moments, but she might be able to get it flying.
[21:51] <Someone> ....You want to go home, yes?
[21:54] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> yes...yes i do
[21:55] <Someone> Then come. This ship will get us back....... granted I've not seen a vessel like this one, but it should suffice.
[21:56] * Someone goes to head to the pilot's seat, and familiarize herself with its controls. (..........)
[21:57] <Someone> ....think I got it.
[21:57] * Chiyoko Shinkaze walks back into the ship
[21:59] * Someone double-checks to ensure she has everything correct...... the ship slowly, but steadily rises into the infinite void....... and paths its way back to Earth.
[19:31] * The projector starts to power up!
[19:33] *** The Cheesykits Logo appears!!
[19:34] *** The first scene begins, showing the MASSIVE hive city. Everything is darkened, dingy, and decorated with gothic spires and architecture typical of so many places within the Imperium of Man.
[19:35] *** A train is speeding along a raised railway bridge, with copper-tinged smoke billowing out from its sides as it heads towards the main hive-tower.
[19:37] * Commander Helianthus is doing the voice-over! Looks like the Kits recruited her for another film.
[19:37] <Commander Helianthus> The city of Tertius is under attack. MY city.
[19:38] *** The train draws nearer to a huge terminus. Boy, that thing is really putting out a LOT of smoke.
[19:39] <Commander Helianthus> A tide of chaos is rising. A FLUFFY tide.
[19:41] *** The train hits the brakes, screeching to a rough stop as the smoke engulfs hundreds of people waiting on the platforms. As they flail around in the acrid smoke, THOUSANDS of small, lithe forms leap out of the train and start surging at the crowds.
[19:41] *** People start screaming and crying out as they're pounced upon and dragged down!
[19:41] <Commander Helianthus> Our best fighters are falling.
[19:43] *** The scene switches to show UMP-9 and a bunch of other T-Dolls slowly dropping to their knees before several shadowy figures.
[19:44] * UMP-9 starts to smile beatifically as one of the figures carefully places a small fluffy form on top of her head. IT'S THE COVETED NAT-HAT!!!
[19:44] <Chibi-Nat (fox form)> >:3
[19:44] <UMP-9> :D
[19:47] *** The next scene switches back to the streets of the city. A black-haired girl wearing a short-skirted white uniform is flailing around as the coppery smoke engulfs her and multiple Xenokits are clambering all over her.
[19:47] *** HEY! That's Takao!
[19:47] <Takao> DX
[19:47] <Xenokits> One of us! One of us! One of us!
[19:49] * Takao starts undergoing a juicy transformation scene as her hair comes undone, her hair shifts, her expression changes...and two perky ears suddenly pop up from the top of her head.
[19:49] *** HOLY CRAP! IT WAS ATAGO IN DISGUISE ALL ALONG!
[19:49] <Atago> :D
[19:51] <Commander Helianthus> It's time for new tactics.
[19:52] *** The scene switches, showing dozens of Kansen (without their Rigs) being escorted down the cavernous, echoing halls of the hive-city, closely guarded by the Imperial Guard.
[19:53] <Commander Helianthus> Something different. Something desperate.
[19:54] *** Azur Lane is escorted into a large chamber where a holographic display shows a distorted image of Solarchos giving some kind of report and speech.
[19:54] <Z-23> Vater!!! :D
[19:54] <Scharnhorst> :D
[19:55] <Bismarck> O__O
[19:55] * Commander Helianthus watches everything closely.
[19:56] <Commander Helianthus> We take you, the outcast and the criminal. The lost and the damned. Because you have nothing left to lose.
[19:59] *** The scene switches, showing a decrepit and refuse-strewn chamber of the Underhive. Deformed cultists have dispatched Springfield, who's lying dead on the ground!! Oh no!!
[19:59] * Springfield has a Xenokit clamped onto her face. She's been the victim of a Facehugger Kit!!
[20:00] *** Suddenly, the body of a cultist is thrown to the ground, and the rest of them look up to see...
[20:00] *** Z-23 has joined #suburbansenshi3

[20:00] *** Laffey has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:00] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Laffey
[20:02] * The Starter Squad poses for a moment, with Laffey looking surprisingly awake for the moment, Javelin brandishing her trademark polearm, Ayanami looking determined, and Nimi looking like she's ready to SMACKAHERETIC!!!
[20:03] * The cultists CHARGE!!!
[20:04] * Javelin leaps forward, smacking aside cultist after cultist, but staggers and falls as she's shot from the side by several T-Dolls attacking from a gantry nearby.
[20:05] <Z-23> D:<
[20:06] * Z-23 IS wearing her rig, and she's dual-wielding a couple of belt-fed machine guns. She blazes away with both of them, sweeping them back and forth and gunning down ALL of the T-Dolls!
[20:06] <Z-23> FOR THE VATER!!!!!
[20:08] * MG-5 rushes up behind Z-23 and BASHES her over the head with own trademark machine gun, then quickly charges it and takes aim at the stunned Nimi.
[20:09] <Z-23> DX
[20:09] <MG-5> >:D
[20:09] * MG-5 gets STABBED from behind by Ayanami and goes down!
[20:09] <Ayanami> >:/
[20:12] * Ayanami is blown sideways as M1897 blasts her with her shotgun. M1897 also has a Xenofluff clamped to the top of her head! SHE IS ONE WITH THE FLOOF NOW!
[20:13] * M1897 staggers as a bottle of vodka is broken over her head.
[20:14] <M1897> XO
[20:14] * Laffey grabs M1897, lifts her up over her head, and GERMAN SUPLEXES her into the ground!!
[20:17] * Laffey starts to get back up, and sees someone else watching from the shadows!
[20:17] *** Ran Yakumo [Nine-Tailed Strategist@EnclaveFedCom.Net(Pirated S] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:17] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Ran Yakumo
[20:18] <Ran Yakumo> >:(
[20:18] * Ran Yakumo spreads her tails out behind her and starts to walk towards Laffey.
[20:18] <Laffey> >:(
[20:19] * Laffey starts to STRIDE towards Ran, then breaks into a run. The Bunny and the Fox prepare to do battle!!!!!
[20:19] <Commander Helianthus (voice-over)> So YOU'RE the scum we're counting on now.
[20:21] <Commander Helianthus (voice-over)> And if it's come to this...then God-Emperor help us all.
[20:21] * Laffey and Ran leap towards each other, arms rearing back as they prepare to engage in EPIC COMBAT!!!!!
[20:22] <~> ♦ Rejects will rise! Starters will shine!
[20:22] <~> ♦ FLUFFTIDE!
[20:24] *** The next scene starts up immediately, with an impressive vista of deep space.
[20:24] *** The camera turns, and focuses on a voidship slowly coasting forward. Yup, that's the Hellesponte
[20:25] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ It is the 41st Millennium.
[20:25] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ For over 10000 years the Imperium has dominated the galaxy.
[20:26] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ There is only war.
[20:27] *** The ship continues to coast forward, and something starts to happen directly in front of it. A bright glowing point appears, then quickly grows larger and larger, transforming into what looks like a portal of some kind.
[20:28] *** And the ship is headed directly towards it.
[20:29] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ Every soul, from the most highborn lord to the most basic servant, is dedicated to the service of the God-Emperor of Mankind.
[20:31] *** Onboard the ship, armored shutters are closing over all the windows.
[20:32] * Chibi-Sylvester watches as various crew rush back and forth, making certain that vital tasks are done.
[20:33] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ The Imperium's battlefleets and armies, from the conscripted soldiers of the Astra Militarum to the elite Space Marines of the Adeptus Astartes...
[20:35] *** The next scene shows numerous glowing cannisters being inserted into sockets built into a massive towering machine deep inside the core of the ship. strangely-colored lightning starts to arc from it as it powers up.
[20:35] *** Outside the ship, the same strangely-colored lightning plays over the hull. It's almost at the edges of that shifting portal now.
[20:36] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ ...keep humanity safe from alien threats.
[20:37] *** The next scene shows the girls of Eisenblut kneeling on the ground as Cadia AI walks by them, waving a burning censer back and forth, filling the air with incense.
[20:38] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ And from cosmic horrors beyond imagining.
[20:39] *** The girls of Ironblood hurry towards chairs built directly into the walls and quickly strap themselves in, locking safety harnesses down over themselves. OH CRAP! IS THE SHIP ABOUT TO ENTER THE WARP?!
[20:40] *** Alarms are going off. Red lights have started flashing everywhere. On the bridge, the Navigator, wearing an elaborate sensor rig that encases his entire head, starts to shudder and convulse in his chair.
[20:41] *** The automatic restraints on that chair tighten even more.
[20:41] * Hellesponte AI walks out onto the command platform and watches everything closely.
[20:41] <Hellesponte AI> :/
[20:42] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ But there is another war. It is the one in which I serve.
[20:42] *** The scene goes black.
[20:43] <~> Begin lateral translation. Crossing the boundary.
[20:43] <~> SQUEAK Event horizon breached.
[20:43] *** The scene switches back into the chamber where Ironblood are all strapped in, and the ship has begun to rock and shudder ominously.
[20:45] *** Strange lights have begun to flash and flicker, and for brief moments, scenes of alternate realities appear momentarily as the boundaries between Realspace and the Immaterium become dangerously thin!!
[20:47] <Bismarck> D:
[20:47] <Prinz Eugen> D:
[20:48] * Admiral Hipper starts to freak out as she sees that something in the Warp has taken notice of her!!!
[20:48] <Warp-fox> :D
[20:50] * Prinz Adalbert whimpers as she's noticed too!!!
[20:50] <Prinz Adalbert> :O
[20:51] <Prinz Heinrich> They're coming for us!!
[20:51] <Prinz Heinrich> THEY'RE COMING FOR US!! THEY'RE TRYING TO BREAK THROUGH!!!
[20:52] * Warp-foxes WILL NOT BE DENIED!! They WILL cross over and enter your realm!
[20:52] *** AND ALL WILL FEEL THE FLOOF!!!!
[20:54] *** Suddenly, with a flash it all ends as the ship emerges from the Warp.
[20:57] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ Our war is not one of battlefields and fleet engagements. It is waged by the dedicated agents of the Imperial Inquisition.
[20:59] *** The ship has arrived in a completely different location in space. It's now speeding towards a planet in the distance. At this range you can see the planet, a cloud-wreathed world of brown and tan, is criss-crossed by large expanses of roadways connected huge urban zones.
[21:00] *** One urban zone in particular rises upwards so high that it extends past the atmosphere. Its base must cover at least several hundred square miles!
[21:03] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ It is fought in the cities and hives of the Imperium.
[21:04] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ In the back streets and forgotten sub-levels. In hive-cities like Tertium.
[21:05] *** The scene switches to a view from the surface of the planet. The camera peers upwards at the gargantuan hive-structure soaring up into the sky and beyond, then looks down at a steel grate built into the ground.
[21:05] *** The flash of gunfire can be seen.
[21:05] *** M4A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:05] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M4A1
[21:05] *** Sopmod-2 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:05] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Sopmod-2
[21:06] *** ST AR-15 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:06] <@spiritflame> konbanwa ST AR-15
[21:06] *** RO-635 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:06] <@spiritflame> konbanwa RO-635
[21:06] * The AR Team rushes through the dank, dark service tunnels of the Underhive, shouting and arguing as they fire on the move.
[21:07] <ST AR-15> We're surrounded!
[21:07] <RO-635> Stay together! Don't get separated!
[21:08] * The AR Team rushes into what looks like an abandoned warehouse. There are LOTS of crates and boxes here, and plenty of places for enemies to hide.
[21:08] <M4A1> There! There's the lift!
[21:09] * M4A1 runs over to where an elevator is built into the wall, and the door controls are glowing faintly.
[21:09] <M4A1> :D
[21:09] * M4A1 presses the controls to call the elevator.
[21:09] <M4A1> ...
[21:09] * M4A1 presses them again. And AGAIN!
[21:09] <M4A1> D:
[21:09] <Sopmod-2> It's not coming?!
[21:10] <RO-635> Is there another way out of here?!
[21:10] <ST AR-15> Keep trying! Run a bypass!
[21:10] <M4A1> I don;t know if that will work!
[21:12] *** Suddenly, there's a crash nearby! And then...oh Throne! THE LAUGH!!!
[21:12] * RO-635 is engulfed in tails and YANKED into the shadows!!!
[21:13] * ST AR-15 and Sopmod-2 start shooting into the shadows where RO-635 was taken!!!
[21:14] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ For if the Inquisition fails...if WE fail...
[21:15] * M4A1 watches helplessly as ST AR-15 is snatched into the darkness as well.
[21:15] * Sopmod-2 is pounced upon by a pair of Giant Foxes that drag her to the floor and start pouncing up and down on her over and over and over and over again!
[21:16] <Sopmod-2> AHHH! AHHHHH! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
[21:17] *** Huge gouts of chunky, viscous blood start to erupt from Sopmod-2's body as she's savagely ripped and torn apart!!! Oh...wait, that "blood" looks like chunky salsa!
[21:19] * M4A1 finally breaks out of her daze and starts blasting away as a huge golden-furred nine-tailed fox gallops towards her. YES, the fox is wearing a fox-earred mop-hat too! HI RAN!!!
[21:20] <Ran Yakumo (fox form)> ^vvvv^
[21:20] <M4A1> AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
[21:20] *** The scene goes dark.
[21:21] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ ...the Imperium fails with us.
[21:21] *** The Flufftide logo appears. "Rejects will rise. Starters will shine."
[21:23] *** The Cheesykits Logo appears as well. Good night for now, everyone!
[13:21] *** Luxurious Limousine Interior
[13:22] *** The window is totally black, allowing no view of the outside, but the small chamber--about the size of a bathroom stall--is lit from within. It seems to only be missing one thing---a latch to open the door from the inside.
[13:23] <Interior Speaker> Welcome to your travel compartment, Mr. Kakaku. I'm happy to answer any questions you have so you can have a relaxed trip around town.
[13:23] <Interior Speaker> Do you have any questions?
[13:24] <D. Kakaku> hmm, I don't really know, will this be another round of fitting?
[13:25] <Interior Speaker> There are several options about testing programs that you will be presented with upon arrival. Please enjoy your trip while we pick up our last few participants.
[13:26] <Interior Speaker> You can use the keyboard or microphone system to access the controls of your apartment, everything from activating the lavatory functions of your seat, to playing movies, pouring drinks, and opening the door.
[13:26] <Interior Speaker> Unless, of course, the car is in motion, in which case some features will be disabled---having the door openable when the vehicle is in motion would be dangerous, as I am sure you understand.
[13:26] <Interior Speaker> Are you ready to go?
[13:27] <D. Kakaku> mmmhmm, just about.
[13:28] <Interior Speaker> Please let us know when.
[13:29] *** The screen in front of D.Kakaku comes on, and has a tremendously wide selection of movies and music to select that he either likes or dislikes. Air begins to blow in his face from several recessed vents in the chamber.
[13:30] * D. Kakaku looks up, down and at the screen.
[13:31] *** The vehicle begins to move.
[13:32] <D. Kakaku> ever had clients with powers at all?
[13:33] *** The air being pumped into the chamber has a little digital display to control it, and also has a subtle scent to it.
[13:34] * D. Kakaku sniffs the air.
[13:34] <D. Kakaku> smells nice.
[13:35] <Interior Speaker> Naturally, to answer that question would be a violation of our clients' privacy. However, please do keep in mind that Tokugawa Orthotics makes use of the latest in scientific advantage, and is willing to cater to any legitimate medical need its clients have. If you would like to have a discussion with staff about how you feel you are unique, that is happily encouraged.
[13:35] <Interior Speaker> And thank you for the compliment. We have found that Americans prefer "New Car Smell," though many of our other clients are relaxed by other smells.
[13:36] *** Now that the car is on the highway and up to speed, the window becomes translucent again and you can see outside.
[13:36] * Viewscreen prompts D.Kakaku again to select the movies and music he enjoys. It also shows a prompts that activates a massage function.
[13:37] * D. Kakaku activates said massage and chooses a random movie.
[13:39] *** The movie begins playing, in surround sound, and everything, but he is prompted again, 5 minutes later, to select other movies he enjoys, and music genres he finds relaxing.
[13:40] *** The vehicle goes all over town on a roundabout course, but at certain times, the window goes dark so hecannot see outside.
[13:40] <D. Kakaku> oh my, amazing.
[13:43] *** The vehicle stops somewhere, and a beautiful movie of a roaring waterfall is shown on the screen, with the roar of the water seemingly coming from everywhere in the compartment--there must have been other speakers.
[13:43] <D. Kakaku> ooh, wow.
[13:45] <Viewscreen> The waterfall stays on the screen, and the roar of the water is played steadily, until after the vehicle starts moving again. Eventually, the screen goes back to normal, and the window lightens once more.
[13:45] *** ^
[13:47] * D. Kakaku looks down on the floor.
[13:48] *** There are vents on the floor. As well as a button that says "Manual Fire Emergency"
[13:50] * D. Kakaku looks elsewhere on the floor.
[13:52] <Viewscreen> There are carpets and floor liners there, like other cars have.
[13:52] *** ^^
[13:53] * D. Kakaku takes off his shoes and crouches onb the floor, and turns a dial on his watch., making him shrink.
[13:54] * Viewscreen starts flashing a message "Please Sit Down" as the weight on the seat keeps decreasing.
[13:55] <D. Kakaku> huh, Wha?!, aw man.
[13:55] *** A red light comes on in the compartment.
[13:56] * D. Kakaku quickly starts twisting it back.
[13:56] <Interior Speaker> Mr. Kakaku? Are you well?
[13:56] <Interior Speaker> Mister Kakaku? Are you okay? Why have you left your seat?
[13:56] <D. Kakaku> I'm doing well, thanks for asking.
[13:57] * D. Kakaku twists it until he's back to full height.
[13:58] <D. Kakaku> I didn't realise these things had alarms.
[13:58] <Interior Speaker> Mr. Kakaku, it's very dangerous to stand while the vehicle is in motion! We have detected a lack of weight upon your seat. If you insist upon doing so, you will need to sign an injury waver in case the car has to move unexpectedly!
[13:59] <Interior Speaker> Are you willing to do so?
[13:59] <D. Kakaku> Oh, ah, well, alright.
[13:59] * D. Kakaku remains seated for a bit.
[14:00] *** An EXTREMELY long legal document comes up on the screen. "This is an updated liability document for you to sign, and will regulate your treatment."
[14:00] *** Do you read the document, skim it, or sign it?
[14:00] * D. Kakaku reads it.
[14:02] * Document includes the part about injury during transit because of standing, but it also has other unusual provisions.
[14:02] * D. Kakaku looks at the more unusual ones.
[14:02] * Unusual section has a part about accepting being misled by staff in experiments to determine suggestibility.
[14:03] * Unusual section has a portion about "I understand that my biological data, sizes, drug doses, will be saved internally for future use, and can be searched for and purchased online by members of the Platinum Plan.
[14:03] <D. Kakaku> (eh? misled?)
[14:04] *** has an addendum to the anesthesia consent form that allows for being rendered unconscious in an emergency, if doing so is required to keep him safe.
[14:04] <D. Kakaku> (platinum plan?)
[14:05] * Unusual section also has a section about understanding that certain tests that involve sensitivity may involve sensations of pinching, light electric shocks, or tickling.
[14:06] <Internal Speaker> Mr. Kakaku? Can you hear us? Are you okay?
[14:07] <Internal Speaker> Your weight shifted suddenly. Have you fallen? Is something wrong?
[14:07] <D. Kakaku> I can hear you, there's a pretty unusual section here.
[14:07] <D. Kakaku> what's the "Platinum Plan"?
[14:09] <Internal Speaker> Well sir, naturally, Tokugawa Orthotics, when testing medicines, medical devices, techniques, or other subjects, needs to be able to be profitable by selling what we find to other companies. Those companies, or wealthy individuals, are referred to as our Platinum Plan, who are the level of patrons automatically notified of experimental results, instead of purchasing them a la carte.
[14:10] <Internal Speaker> Do you have further questions?
[14:10] *** The vehicle continues to move around Tokyo.
[14:10] <D. Kakaku> none whatsoever, except, how do I disable these alerts?
[14:11] <Internal Speaker> You mean the g-force and weight sensors?
[14:12] <Internal Speaker> Well, if you want to stand, you need to sign that document protecting us from your injury during transit because you were not seated and buckled in.
[14:12] <D. Kakaku> yeah.
[14:12] <D. Kakaku> ah, alright.
[14:12] <Internal Speaker> We do encourage you to do so, and to buckle your seatbelt, but if you are adamant not to do so, you may sign the waiver.
[14:12] * D. Kakaku looks it over and sign it.
[14:12] <Internal Speaker> Oh thank you VERY MUCH, sir!
[14:13] <D. Kakaku> you're welcome.
[14:13] <Internal Speaker> But there is one thing that you should definitely know if you intend to rummage around in your seat. You should absolutely NOT push the manual fire emergency button unless the vehicle has become involved in an accident!
[14:14] <Internal Speaker> That will activate the fire suppression system in the vehicle, and flood it with fire retardant!
[14:14] <D. Kakaku> heh, okay.
[14:14] <Internal Speaker> Thank you so much! Would you like to hear some calming music now?
[14:14] * D. Kakaku gets up.
[14:15] <D. Kakaku> sure
[14:15] *** The alarm doesn't go off again. Relaxing flute music plays.
[14:15] <D. Kakaku> can you give me a time of when we'll be there?
[14:16] <Internal Speaker> I am sorry sir, and I know you are anxious to get there. There is a traffic jam, unfortuately, but we should be moving again soon.
[14:17] *** The vehicle has indeed slowed to a crawl, but without a functioning window, it's impossible to see what's going on.
[14:17] <D. Kakaku> okay, that should be fine, I'm not in a rush.
[14:18] <Internal Speaker> Yes sir. We are sorry for the delay. Thank you for your patience.
[14:18] * D. Kakaku stands on the carpet, his shoes next to him, as he twists his watch to shrink again.
[14:19] <D. Kakaku> you're welcome. *says this before he does so*
[14:19] *** No alerts come on this time.
[14:20] <D. Kakaku> whew.
[14:20] * D. Kakaku walks on the carpet a bit, twisting the dial little by little, reaching under 3 feet.
[14:23] * D. Kakaku twists it a bit more, 2 feet, 1 foot, 6 inches, 3 inches. looking around as he does so.
[14:24] *** The vehicle keeps moving. The slightest bumps on the road make it harder to stand now.
[14:25] *** You realize it's kind of cold in the vehicle as you get really small.
[14:54] * D. Kakaku continues looking around at the giant interior, standing on the floor.
[14:56] * Limousine controls are very far up, now. You really cannot control your compartment, communicate, or get out right now.
[14:57] * D. Kakaku continues looking around, at the floor, towards his shoes.
[14:59] *** Said shoes are probably pretty big in comparison, now.
[14:59] * D. Kakaku looks and walks towards them.
[15:02] * D. Kakaku looks down at the carpet.
[15:04] * Limousine has maroon carpet.
[15:05] <D. Kakaku> ooh, pretty nice.
[15:06] * Limousine is extremely extremely clean, too.
[15:07] * Limousine continues to play very relaxing music, but the volume decreases.
[15:07] <D. Kakaku> (hmm? decrease in volume?)
[15:08] *** The chair starts to move, slowly and barely-peceptively, though he can probably see it due to his small size.
[15:09] <D. Kakaku> oh man, is it the massaging in there making it move?
[15:10] * D. Kakaku looks at the carpet and twists more, half an inch, small, a millimeter.
[15:11] *** It starts to get very cold in the Limousine now--enough to cause shivering.
[15:11] <D. Kakaku> brrrr, cold
[15:12] * D. Kakaku looks around even more, down at the carpet, over to the shoes, all around him.
[15:13] *** you can probably get warmer by huddling in tiny tangles of the carpet. Meanwhile, however, the vehicle starts moving again.
[15:14] * D. Kakaku goes to a tiny tangle and huddles in it.
[15:14] * Limousine begins moving at greater speed. The window brightens up and lets light in.
[15:15] <D. Kakaku> oh wow, is it...?
[15:16] * Limousine window is too high for D.Kakaku to see out of.
[15:16] <Internal Speaker> Attention Patients---we are now approaching Tokugawa Orthotics! Please prepare to be offloaded in your order, currently displayed on the screen.
[15:17] <D. Kakaku> oh my, better get going.
[15:17] * D. Kakaku starts twisting the dial to get back to his 5'11" height.
[15:18] <D. Kakaku> /is twisting it carefully, yet quickly.
[15:18] * D. Kakaku *^
[15:18] *** You sit back in the chair, and are much warmer. The screen says you are going to be offloaded after (5) other people.
[15:18] * D. Kakaku puts his shoes back on
[15:19] <D. Kakaku> ahhhh, there we go
[15:19] * Internal Speaker starts to play loud waterfall noises again, and the same image of the waterfall appears on the screen, with a final prompting to select which music and instruments are his favorite, as well as movies he would like queued up to watch later.
[15:19] *** Indicator now sas D.Kakaku will be off loaded after (4) people.
[15:20] <D. Kakaku> hmmm, where is that waterfall?
[15:20] <Internal Speaker> ♦ Error!
[15:21] <Internal Speaker> Mr. Kakaku? There has been an accident in the waiting room assigned to you, and you will be taken to a different waiting room. We apologize for any inconvenience.
[15:22] *** Indicator shows that D.Kakaku will be offloaded NEXT.
[15:22] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[15:22] <Limousine> Door opens, and several nurses wait there with a wheelchair at the ready. "Good afternoon, Mr. Kakaku!"
[15:23] <D. Kakaku> afternoon/me gets on out and sits in the wheelchair.
[15:23] * D. Kakaku *^
[15:23] <Nurses> Oh! Well, that was just in case you were cramped from your journey, but you are most welcome.
[15:23] * Nurses start pushing the wheelchair along a dim corridor, with gradually brightening lights.
[15:23] <Nurses> Thank you so much for your testing appointment.
[15:24] <Nurses> We'll be your medical team today, and your doctor will be.
[15:24] * Nurses check. "Dr. Sakamoto. She's getting ready now."
[15:24] <Nurses> Here we are. We understand you have signed the consent form, and that is wonderful. Please come in.
[15:25] <D. Kakaku> alright.
[15:25] *** You are wheeled into a very fancy waiting room. Rather unusually, there are two big, padded, clinical-looking chairs. One of them looks like a fairly standard dentist's chair, but the other chair has straps and restraints all over it to secure whoever sits in it.
[15:26] <Nurses> Here you are. We are terribly sorry, but we needed to change your room at the last moment due to a technical hiccup, but you shouldn't worry about it.
[15:26] <Nurses> Now Mr. Kakaku, of course, here at Tokugawa Orthotics, we don't do things to people against their will, so we'd like you to sign off on the test you'd be doing today. You have several options.
[15:26] <D. Kakaku> that's alright, what happened with it?
[15:27] <D. Kakaku> okay
[15:27] <Nurses> It turned out that the last test subject had a bloodborne disease that they were infected with since their last appointment, which was not on our records and unknown. We are therefore securing the room for further deep cleaning, but you would have been placed in this room afterwards, anyway. :0
[15:28] <Nurses> :)
[15:28] <Nurses> So have you remembered not to eat or drink for the requisite time?
[15:28] <D. Kakaku> yeah, I remembered.
[15:29] <Nurses> Wonderful! Your doctors will be most pleased!
[15:29] <Nurses> Now we have a variety of ways you can help as a test subject today.
[15:30] <D. Kakaku> oh?
[15:31] <Nurses> One thing you can do is help our company do beta tests on a medical device to be used in remote locations, such as the base in Antarctica. Another thing you can do is help us test a new anesthetic, to be used in human trials--i.e. you...
[15:31] * Nurses checks a list, and also...
[15:32] <D. Kakaku> hmm?
[15:32] <Nurses> Oh, there's also a new device fitted for you, which is to be used by ski patrols and other cold-temperature environments to help people with hypothermia. Which would you like to help us do?
[15:32] <D. Kakaku> yeah, I'd love to.
[15:33] <Nurses> Er, yes. We are grateful for your enthusiasm... but which one would you like the focus of your visit today to be? :)
[15:33] <D. Kakaku> hmm, can we do the medical device first, followed by the new device?
[15:34] <Nurses> I am unsure if we have time to do everything today, but all three can be used to give data to each other. Very well. It's very likely that you will help save the lives of people who need surgery in remote locations.
[15:35] <D. Kakaku> alright.
[15:35] <Nurses> We'll leave as you prepare and put on your hospital gown. You'll also need special contact lenses for this test. Once you have put on your testing garments, please sit in the chair, and we'll be back to assist you. Then you will see the doctor.
[15:35] * Nurses leave.
[15:35] <D. Kakaku> okay
[15:36] *** A robotic voice comes on after the nurses leave. "Test Subject #3, please bathe and shower before putting on your medical testing gear. The closet will accomodate your clothing. Thank you."
[15:36] * D. Kakaku heads to the bath and shower.
[15:37] *** A compartment on the wall opens up to reveal a closet. Another one opens to reveal a bathtub.
[15:37] * D. Kakaku goes to the bathtub first.
[15:38] <Nurses> Unlike almost all other bathrooms, the faucets here have digital temperature selections for how hot the water is.
[15:38] <Loudspeaker> ^
[15:38] <Loudspeaker> Please experiment and select the water temperature that you find most relaxing.
[15:39] <Loudspeaker> This will be your preliminary shower before disinfection. A selection of towels and soap has been provided.
[15:40] * D. Kakaku starts to experiment with the water temperature. and dips inside.
[15:41] *** unlike almost every other shower stall, this one doesn't allow moisture to escape. It's essentiall a cubicle, and it has numerous nozzles to spray you all over, not just one.
[15:42] * D. Kakaku begins showering.
[15:42] *** the faucett has a little button that says "press when optimal temperature is selected."
[15:43] * D. Kakaku pushes s soon as he finds it comfortable.
[15:44] <Loudspeaker> Please continue to shower until you feel you are clean, then press the Orange Button.
[15:44] *** A panel in the shower opens to reaveal said button.
[15:46] * D. Kakaku takes around 10 minutes, washing everything and once he feels clean, presses the button.
[15:47] *** The water completely stops, and a panel opens in the ceiling. Lowered on a couple of hoses is what appears to be D.Kakaku's own face!
[15:48] <D. Kakaku> a mirror?
[15:49] *** Lowered on airhoses, there appears to be what looks almost exactly like D.Kakaku's own head. It closes on a hinge at the top, and has a breathing hose that goes to the nose and mouth.
[15:50] <Loudspeaker> Test subject #3, this waterproof mask has been fabricated based upon your body's measurements. Please don it and test the seals, and air connections, and ensure it will fit you perfectly.
[15:50] * D. Kakaku dons the mask.
[15:51] *** The mask shuts with a loud, secure "CLICK."
[15:52] <Earbuds in the Mask> Hello again Mr. Kakaku! This is Dr. Sakamoto. I'm monitoring your air intake! Please breathe normally so I can calculate your breathing rate!
[15:52] <D. Kakaku> alright.
[15:52] * D. Kakaku breathes through the mask.
[15:53] *** The mask fits perfectly, and it's just like breathing without it. The only problem is that the air hoses kind of limit where you can go, since they are coming from the shower ceiling.
[15:54] <Earbuds in the Mask> You are doing wonderfully, Mr. Kakaku. Please be aware that if you become panicked phobic for any reason, please tell me and I'll help you to relax and calm down. We will absolutely stop the tests if necessary.
[15:54] <Earbuds in the Mask> Now keep breathing, just like that.
[15:55] * D. Kakaku keeps on breathing.
[15:56] <Earbuds in the Mask> Wonderful. I'm getting excellent readings. Now Mr. Kakaku, my assistants are going to reactivate the water flow in the shower module, and add the disinfectand we'll need to use. It's an eye irritant, so you'll be wearing this for the duration.
[15:57] <Earbuds in the Mask> It will be helpful if we dim the lights and use infrared. You are an excellent subject due to your lack of claustrophobia, but do you have any problems with darkness or lack of auditory cues? It's best to know since the shower will be loud. Remember, if you become stressed or disoriented, I will be happy to help you.
[15:57] <D. Kakaku> no, not at all.
[15:58] <Earbuds in the Mask> That's wonderful. You are doing great. Just relax and breathe normally.
[15:58] <Earbuds in the Mask> Don't worry, we will use the water temperature you found most relaxing.
[15:59] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[15:59] *** all the shower nozzles turn on at increasing strength, and soon there's water going everywhere. Fortunately, it only hits the mask and not D.Kakaku's face. It is really hard, but you are invulnerable to it. It's still somewhat of a strange sensation.
[16:00] * Lights now go out, and there is nothing to see, and nothing to hear except the roar of water.
[16:00] <D. Kakaku> hmmm.
[16:00] <Earbuds in the Mask> Please raise your arms now, and stand with your legs a little apart, Mr. Kakaku?
[16:00] <Earbuds in the Mask> Also, if you are a little anxious, let me know. We are almost done.
[16:01] <D. Kakaku> alright.
[16:01] <Earbuds in the Mask> Now the mask fits perfectly, right? It should be like a second skin. You don't feel any leaks, do you?
[16:01] <D. Kakaku> no, no leaks
[16:01] <Earbuds in the Mask> Wonderful. Now we are going to dry you...
[16:02] *** A very sudden wind starts blowing through the chamber. It's very very cold, since you don't have a towel.
[16:02] <D. Kakaku> brrrrr, a bti cold
[16:03] *** The wind keeps blowing and blowing, evaporating the water but suddenly cooling the room too.
[16:03] <Earbuds in the Mask> Almost done---you are doing great!
[16:03] <Earbuds in the Mask> And it looks like your breathing gear is a perfect fit!
[16:04] <D. Kakaku> mmhmm
[16:05] <Earbuds in the Mask> It's state of the art, and even has separate feeds for your mouth and nose. Before you go out, I'm going to test the separation. You SHOULD be able to breath through your mouth now, but not be able to smell anything or breathe through your nose. Please check now.
[16:06] <D. Kakaku> ok.
[16:06] *** The nose air supply is totally shut off, and breathing through your nose only pulls the mask to your face. Your mouth still works fine though, and provides fresh, sweet air.
[16:07] <D. Kakaku> mmhmm
[16:07] * D. Kakaku breathes through the mouth.
[16:07] <Earbuds in the Mask> The wind finally stops after D.KAkaku is dry, but quite chilled.
[16:08] *** The lights come back on, and you can see that the door is open, and there's a warm bathrobe.
[16:09] *** The breathing helmet comes lose with a "Klik"
[16:09] <D. Kakaku> ahhh.
[16:10] <Earbuds in the Mask> The door to the shower opens, and there are the two chairs in the room.
[16:10] <Earbuds in the Mask> ♦ Please sit in the chair, and medical staff will attend to you.
[16:10] *** One of the chairs is normal, and the other chair is all covered in restraints. The doctor and nurses didnt' specify which chair to sit in, so where do you sit?
[16:11] * D. Kakaku puts on the bathrobe and goes to sit in the chair with restraints, figuing that one would be the one they want him to sit in.
[16:11] <D. Kakaku> hello?
[16:11] <D. Kakaku> which chair?
[16:12] *** A door opens, and the nurses come back in after he has sat down.
[16:12] * Nurses come over to the restraint chair. "Hello again, Mr. Kakaku!" They give a polite bow.
[16:13] <D. Kakaku> hi
[16:13] <D. Kakaku> which chair did you want me to sit in?
[16:13] <Nurses> I'm sorry we didn't specify about the chairs. You see, it is all determined by you. You need to wear some special, heavily-polarized contact lenses for the next portion of the experiment.
[16:13] <D. Kakaku> oh... well.
[16:14] <Nurses> Some people have no trouble putting contact lenses in, and other people just cannot, and are unable to overcome their avoidance and blinkind reflex.
[16:14] * D. Kakaku stands up and goes over to the other chair.
[16:14] <Nurses> We haven't asked you if these restraints are necessary. Are you able to stay still for contact lenses? Some people are, and some are not. We can absolutely use this chair. If you need us to briefly restrain you and put the lens in for you, we would be happy to. It happens every day. :)
[16:15] <D. Kakaku> oh, you might need to
[16:15] <Nurses> Of course of course!
[16:15] <Nurses> Everybody naturally wants to protect their eyes, and it can be very difficult if you have never worn contacts before.
[16:15] <Nurses> Here, just sit right down, please.
[16:16] * Nurses open and clear the restraint chair for D.Kakaku.
[16:16] * D. Kakaku sits down.
[16:17] * Nurses quickly and efficiently immobilize D.Kakaku's legs, waist, shoulders, hands, and arms.
[16:17] *** The chair seems to have plenty of belts on it to go over D.Kakaku's body.
[16:17] <D. Kakaku> agh, you only needed the arms.
[16:18] * Nurses buckle the last buckle, around D.Kakaku's head, and puts a posture lock to hold his face in one direction. They recline the chair so he is facing directly upward at the ceiling.
[16:18] <Nurses> Please don't worry sir, we know just what we are doing.
[16:18] <Nurses> Now please tell us this---will you be able to look in the direction of the lens, or do we need to use the special eyedrops to numb your eye muscles for a few minutes?
[16:19] <Nurses> Either way, nothing else will happen, and nothing y ou have not agreed to will occur.
[16:19] <D. Kakaku> my eyes tend to close with any liquid getting near them.
[16:20] <Nurses> Don't worry, it'll be quick and painless.
[16:20] * Nurses take a special, dark-looking contact lens, and bring it close and closer to D.Kakaku's eye, to see if he blinks or looks away.
[16:21] <Nurses> Let's see if we can do this the first time? Just look ahead and do not blink. :)
[16:21] <Nurses> Don't worry if you do. You are only human, and we are all ready. :)
[16:22] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[16:22] * Nurses try to put the contact lenses in--does D.Kakaku blink?
[16:23] * D. Kakaku twitching blinking, but it manages to go in.
[16:24] <Nurses> You are doing SO GREAT!
[16:24] * Nurses now waste no time, and do the other eye, seeing if D.Kakaku is able to stay still.
[16:25] * Nurses hold his eyelid open, gently but firmly, if it is necesssary. "Just relax. Only a second!"
[16:26] <Nurses> There, does that feel okay?
[16:26] * D. Kakaku tries relaxing.
[16:26] *** The room looks darker now, like you are wearing thickly-smoked sunglasses.
[16:26] <D. Kakaku> huh wha?
[16:27] <Nurses> You are fine! These are polarized contact lenses---state of the art in miniaturization. Just like polarized sunglasses to avoid glare!
[16:27] <Nurses> Okay, now Mr. Kakaku, we have a quick question.
[16:27] <D. Kakaku> yes?
[16:27] <Nurses> Dr. Sakamoto is ready to see you. Would you like to see her right now, before you get out of the chair, or in the next equipment room?
[16:29] <D. Kakaku> how about right now? and I can go in the other chair?
[16:29] <Nurses> Just a moment, then.
[16:30] * Nurses quickly release D.Kakaku.
[16:30] * D. Kakaku goes to the non-restraint chair.
[16:30] <Nurses> You of course meant you wanted us to release you. That other chair doesn't move, but we could offer a wheelchair for you?
[16:31] <Nurses> It's just a short walk, however? We are sorry you are cold, but that will be fixed soon.
[16:31] <D. Kakaku> alright
[16:32] <D. Kakaku> ah, alright.
[16:32] * D. Kakaku gets up.
[16:32] * Nurses take a wheelchair out of a compartment in the wall, and let D.Kakaku get in it.
[16:32] * D. Kakaku sits in the wheen chair.
[16:33] <Nurses> One last question, Mr. Kakaku. The device you will be testing can be... intimidating to some people.
[16:33] <D. Kakaku> oh?
[16:33] <Nurses> We just thought we would offer you the optioin of not seeing it.
[16:33] <Nurses> It's the same thing you were in last time, and it is fit to perfectly accomodate your body.
[16:33] <D. Kakaku> ah, alright.
[16:34] <Nurses> Well, we can blindfold you if you wish, or give you some special goggles where you won't see it unless you want to? I assure you it is not necessary, however. What would you like? :)
[16:35] <D. Kakaku> what about the goggles?
[16:35] <Nurses> Well, they work like this...
[16:36] * Nurses bring some goggles over to D.Kakaku, which are tinted like the ones he wears, and also have little motors in them around the rims.
[16:36] <Nurses> These are one of the other test items being tested, but you aren't scheduled for them today. They are available at your option, though.
[16:36] <Nurses> Here we go, I'll put them on you real quick.
[16:37] *** The goggles are deep, and tremendously narrow D.Kakaku's peripheral vision.
[16:37] *** The room turns very very very dark, and the glasses function like a blindfold.
[16:37] * Nurses clip something to D.Kakaku's ears, which beeps softly, in conjunction with his heartbeat, and the room slowly starts to lighten up again.
[16:38] <Nurses> What do you think?
[16:38] <D. Kakaku> woah, it's wonderful.
[16:38] <Nurses> It's experimental, so I cannot specify, but your heartbeat and fear response dictates how much of the light is allowed through your contact lenses.
[16:38] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[16:39] <Nurses> This way, if you get a little spooked, they will darken up so you cannot see what's bothering you.
[16:40] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[16:40] <Nurses> Out of Sight, Out of Mind. They work with other implements, but since you scored so well, you are approved for their use.
[16:40] <Nurses> Ready to go to the testing room?
[16:40] <D. Kakaku> yes please.
[16:41] *** The nurses put a sterile blanket over D.Kakaku since he was cold, and wheel him down a looooooong corridor, listening to the beeps to guage his anxiety level.
[16:41] * D. Kakaku looks around.
[16:42] <Nurses> The signs above the doors say "To Experimental Room 1-8"
[16:42] <Nurses> You'll be going to room 3.
[16:42] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[16:42] <Nurses> They eventually get there, and open the door to a very small room.
[16:43] *** You are wheeled into the room, and set into a recession in the wall is what looks like a big purple sarcophagus.
[16:43] <Nurses> Here you are. The same one as before, and it's perfectly calibrated to your body shape, so you will be nice and warm and snug.
[16:43] *** The room darkens a little bit.
[16:43] <Nurses> Do you want to climb into it on a table, or would you rather back into it standing, Mr. Kakaku?
[16:45] <D. Kakaku> hmm, wow.
[16:45] <Nurses> Naturally, this is not what you'll be testing. We just need to ensure you are perfectly still.
[16:46] <Nurses> This is ALSO the other device that you requested testing, though that will require some changes.
[16:46] <D. Kakaku> oh?
[16:46] <Nurses> Yes.
[16:47] <Nurses> Dr. Sakamoto will fill you in. Ready to get in, or are you a little nervous?
[16:47] <D. Kakaku> I'm ready
[16:48] <Nurses> Splendid
[16:48] <Nurses> Okay, stand up now!
[16:48] <Nurses> Now just hold your arms out, and we'll guide you backwards into it, okay?
[16:48] <Nurses> Remember, if you are skittish, we can help you. :)
[16:49] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[16:49] * D. Kakaku follows the directions that he is told.
[16:49] <Nurses> Just a few more steps now.
[16:50] *** D.Kakaku eventually backs into the crevice shaped just like his body. The nurses put his arms at his sides in their own padded sleeves, and then lock the mechanism closed, so his hands are by his sides.
[16:50] <D. Kakaku> hmhmmm.
[16:51] <Nurses> The wall closes aroun D.Kakaku's body, with only his head sticking out.
[16:51] <Nurses> Okay, are you feeling secure? Based on your readings, it should feel pretty snug and cozy.
[16:51] <Nurses> Do you feel safe?
[16:51] <D. Kakaku> pretty safe.
[16:51] <Nurses> Okay, that's wonderful. That's really wonderful.
[16:52] <Nurses> Now Doctor Sakamoto will be with you in a minute or so, she's almost prepared for the procedure. Would you like anything to help you relax?
[16:53] <D. Kakaku> not much, is there anything?
[16:53] <Nurses> Well of course there is!
[16:54] <D. Kakaku> oh?
[16:55] <Nurses> Yes.
[16:55] * Nurses smile. Here you go. Let's help you relax.
[16:56] *** You hear the sound of a cart's wheels being pushed toward you.
[16:56] <D. Kakaku> hmmm?
[16:56] * One of the nurses stands directly in front of D.Kakaku, and holds a remote control in her hand. She points it at his face and pushes a button. Gradually, the room gets darker and darker until vision is impossible.
[16:57] <D. Kakaku> huh?
[16:57] <One of the nurses> Don't worry, here's a nice pillow!
[16:58] *** A pillow is placed to support and secure D.Kakaku's head and neck.
[16:58] * D. Kakaku lays his head on the pillow.
[16:58] <Nurses> Here you are, Mr. Kakaku---these earbuds will play the music you selected as being relaxing on the car trip over here. It'll help you pass the time.
[16:59] <D. Kakaku> alright
[16:59] <Nurses> Of course. It'll keep you nice and relaxed, and Dr. Sakamoto will be with you any minute. Please enjoy. :)
[17:00] *** Some earbuds are quickly slipped into D.Kakaku's ears, and play soft music, which he has little choice but to listen to, as vision and movement are impossible.
[17:00] <D. Kakaku> hmmm
[17:01] * Nurses recline the papoose-like device into which D.Kakaku is secured, to help him relax.
[17:02] *** Soft music plays.
[17:02] *** Time passes.
[17:03] *** A new song begins. D.Kakaku cannot hear it, but his heart rate is being measured to see whether he is becoming more calm or more agitated in sensory deprivation.
[17:03] * D. Kakaku is getting calmer
[17:05] *** More soft, relaxing music is played to D.Kakaku.
[17:05] <D. Kakaku> mmhmmm
[17:05] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Good afternoon, Mr. Kakaku!
[17:05] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> We are all so happy to see you again.
[17:06] *** The earbuds are gently removed.
[17:06] <D. Kakaku> hey there, doctor.
[17:06] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Thank you SO MUCH for coming back as a subject. You were so exemplary during your fitting that I recommended you be fast tracked, personally.
[17:07] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> You are so calm and take things so well. Some people really get agitated and have to quit, no matter how much they wish to help out.
[17:07] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> So I'm sure you have questions, would you like to know what you are helping test today?
[17:07] <D. Kakaku> yes please.
[17:07] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Of course, or course.
[17:08] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Are you aware that numerous nations have manned bases on Antarctica, or need to send people to the desert? Of course there is also the work about manned bases on the Moon, and even work about colonizing Mars! Truly exciting times. What you will be testing today will help people do that!
[17:08] <D. Kakaku> oh? how so?
[17:10] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Well, there is a company called Santorini Immersive Systems, and they have made a prototype of a surgical robot.
[17:10] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> I'm sure you are very excited.
[17:10] <D. Kakaku> oh, I am.
[17:11] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> This robot could facilitate operations and lifesaving medical care in even the harshest environments. Patient's vital records, medical conditions, dosages, and other information can be stored within it--as yours have, and it can perform medical procedures.
[17:11] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Of course, that's a BIG DEAL, especially when it's the doctor who needs the help!
[17:11] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Now just lie still, I'm going to recline you all the way to 90 degrees, okay?
[17:12] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[17:12] *** the body-mould is slowly but inexorably tilted backwards until D.Kakaku is looking straight up. (You can feel the intense operating room lights on your face, even though you cannot see anything.)
[17:12] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> I'm glad you are wearing the goggles, we can skip that step.
[17:13] <D. Kakaku> alright
[17:13] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> So Mr. Kakaku, I have been... greatly honored, in helping calibrate the dosages an anesthetic programming of the surgical robot.
[17:13] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> And we'll be having it give you the exact same dosages I did last time---that's why we needed to do that, you see.
[17:13] <D. Kakaku> okay
[17:14] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> It has to have absolutely precise body measurement to do things like intubation---of course, you are healthy, so there is no reason to have it operate on you. We just want to double-check the anesthesia delivery and monitoring system today. Sounds good, right?
[17:15] <D. Kakaku> sounds good
[17:15] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Very well. Now it's critical you understand that I'm ready to take over in case anything happens, okay?
[17:15] <D. Kakaku> okay
[17:16] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> There's one last question. Would you like to see it happen? I can leave the goggles on you just like that, if you want. Some people have a last-minute freakout when they see a surgical robot bearing down on them. How do you feel about that?
[17:17] <D. Kakaku> yeah, I'd like to see it.
[17:17] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Of course!
[17:18] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> My assistants will take if off of you, then. The great part about it is that you don't have to worry about having to squint from the bright light. We'll open your irises up nice and slowly.
[17:18] <D. Kakaku> okay
[17:18] *** The room starts to slowly get brighter and brighter. There's no need to blink or close your eyes, though. It happens gradually.
[17:19] * Nurse , holding the remote, can now be seen in front of you again. She is wearing a surgical mask, but her eyes light up pleasantly, suggesting she is smiling. She takes the goggles and ear clips off.
[17:20] <Nurse> Nice and secure, Mr. Kakaku?
[17:20] <D. Kakaku> yep
[17:21] * Nurses hold out what seems to be a cross between an orthopedic collar and a neck brace, which has a big rubber seal around it, and fasten it around D.Kakaku's neck. It's padded, but still forces the wearer to look straight ahead.
[17:21] *** You are forced to look at the bright surgical light, but it doesnt' hurt at all, and actually seems far dimmer than it should.
[17:22] <D. Kakaku> hmhmm
[17:22] <Nurses> Okay Mr. Kakaku, here we go!
[17:22] <D. Kakaku> ok
[17:22] *** There is a looooud, loooong, electrical beeping signal, and a bunch of noises that sound like 10 printers working at the same time.
[17:23] *** There are no footsteps, but the noises from behind you get louder and louder and louder. You see the nurses backing away, out of your peripheral vision since you cannot turn your head.
[17:25] <D. Kakaku> hmm?
[17:25] *** The noises fade for a moment, and then resume, getting louder and louder, and then, eventually, you see a toweringly tall contraption made of black and clear plastic appear in your field of vision that comes closer and closer.
[17:25] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Doing great, Mr. Kakaku---stand by!
[17:26] <D. Kakaku> ok
[17:27] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> The machine doesn't look humanoid at all at this stage, but it does have a monitor on it that moves into your light of sight, and Dr. Sakamoto's visage, covered in surgical accoutrements, is on it. You cannot see her face, but her eyes look gentle.
[17:27] <Dr. Sakamoto's Voice> Here we go... opening up now...
[17:27] <D. Kakaku> okay
[17:28] *** A cavity in the robot opens up as it advances on D.Kakaku, and it slowly engulfs D.Kakaku's immobile head.
[17:28] * D. Kakaku remains calm.
[17:28] *** Your vision gets darker and darker, as the receptacle your head has gone into closes, and seals around the gasket built into the collar bracing your neck.
[17:29] * A monitor flickers to life inside of the induction chamber, where you can clearly see it. Dr. Sakamoto is there, and she bows in acknowlegement.
[17:29] <D. Kakaku> oh my
[17:29] *** Hissing can be heard as air is pumped in.
[17:30] <A monitor> Don't worry, Mr. Kakaku, you are perfectly safe.
[17:30] <A monitor> I just thought you'd want to understand what's about to happen?
[17:30] <D. Kakaku> I do
[17:30] <A monitor> Of course. :)
[17:31] <A monitor> This machine will place you under general anesthetic, according the precise parameters we programmed into it last time. Your body is perfectly still, and it knows your dimensions, so it cannot miss due to your motion. It will use that data to put you under, and we will test the intubation function.
[17:31] <A monitor> Naturally, you won't be awake for that.
[17:32] <D. Kakaku> aleight.
[17:32] <A monitor> You will be under longer than you were last time, so there's one factor you should know about, though you shouldn't concern yourself at all. This medicine CAN interfere with memory formation in the long term for some people, so we'll have an exit interview and make sure you are okay, and we'll transport you back to your home.
[17:33] <D. Kakaku> ok, can I see the doctor during the ride?
[17:33] <A monitor> It's just that, because of that memory loss, if you don't remember certain things happening before your trip back, that's normal. We'll videotape the whole thing so you can see what happened, and send it to you along with your payment. In other words, if you "wake up" on the way home, that's a subjective experience we have dealt with before.
[17:34] <D. Kakaku> okay
[17:34] <A monitor> Wonderful. Okay, it looks to me like you are ready!
[17:34] <A monitor> Have sweet dreams. We all enjoyed taking care of you today, and hope you come back!
[17:36] <A monitor> Now just relax. Dont' worry, we'll all be right here!
[17:36] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[17:37] * A monitor turns off for a moment, and after your eyes adjust, you can see that there's nothing but a tiny red light in front of your face.
[17:38] <A camera> points down at D.Kakaku and whirs softly as it focuses.
[17:39] * Another camera emerges into D.Kakaku's field of vision, a red light indicating it is recording.
[17:41] *** There is a rush of motion, and you suddenly feel something tighten against your mouth and nose. There is a soft hiss.
[17:42] <D. Kakaku> mmph.
[17:42] * Monitor comes back on, showing the four members of the operating room staff in the shot. The light from the monitor illuminate the hoses going to your mouth and nose.
[17:43] <Monitor > Everything is going great. All you need to do is lie there calmly and relax. It's just giving you some oxygen.
[17:43] * D. Kakaku relaxes.
[17:43] <Operating Room Staff on Monitor > Everything going alright? Do you feel safe and secure?
[17:44] <D. Kakaku> yes, I do.
[17:44] <D. Kakaku> yes, I do
[17:44] <Operating Room Staff on Monitor > We are right here. Everything is going perfectly.
[17:45] <Operating Room Staff on Monitor > That's wonderful, that's wonderful.
[17:45] *** A strong, noticable smell starts to come through the anesthesia mask.
[17:46] * D. Kakaku breathes.
[17:46] <Operating Room Staff on Monitor > Now in a few seconds you are going to start feeling really, really relaxed.
[17:47] *** The smell doesn't go away.
[17:47] * D. Kakaku continues
[17:48] * D. Kakaku relaxes more
[17:49] *** it starts to become confusing on how many times you have breathed, and the room seems to move slightly, even though this is impossible. Everthing feels nice, and warm, and wonderful.
[17:52] * Operating Room Staff on Monitor look swirly, like the monitor is flickery. "Thank you so much, Mr. Kakaku. We will turn off our camera feed to help you relax. You were a wonderful subject." They all bow in unison.
[17:53] <D. Kakaku> mmmm?
[17:54] *** The monitor goes off, as something brushes against your ear, and you sort of see things moving in the darkness lit by the recording light. You stop being able to feel your body. There's nothing but the hissing and the smell and the warmth.
[17:55] <D. Kakaku> mmmm
[17:55] * It suddenly feels like a trap door opens underneath you and you are falling down, and you land in the seat of the vehicle you got here in.
[17:57] * You gradually realize the vehicle is moving, and there is a nurse on the viewscreen looking at you.
[17:57] <Nurse> :)
[17:57] <Nurse> Still feeling queasy, Mr. Kakaku?
[17:58] <D. Kakaku> ughh a bit
[17:59] <Nurse> Well you have done a wonderful job. Because of people like you, surgery can be pionered in ever-more-hostile places, and will doubtlessly save lives.
[18:00] * D. Kakaku looks around a bit.
[18:00] <D. Kakaku> where?
[18:01] <Nurse> Well, you are on your way home now, and doing wonderfully. Of if you meant, "where will the surgery be," places like the Moon. :)
[18:01] <D. Kakaku> what about the doctor?
[18:01] <spiritflame> Nurse rolls 1d2 [ 2 ]
[18:01] <Nurse> She can answer your questions, just a moment.
[18:02] * Nurse disappears.
[18:03] * Woman in Surgical Scrubs appears on the viewscreen. "Hello Mr. Kakaku. Is everthing okay?"
[18:03] <D. Kakaku> ah, hey there.
[18:04] <D. Kakaku> yeah, what happened and what's going on?
[18:07] <Woman in Surgical Scrubs> Your induction dose was SLIGHTLY higher this time than last time. Probably by less than a tenth of a percent, but it took longer, and you seem to have lost some memory of the discussions afterward. This is the fourth time you have asked to speak to me, but I'm sure you don't remember it. And that's fine. I am just happy you are okay. :)
[18:10] <D. Kakaku> that's good
[18:10] <D. Kakaku> is there anything else I did while I was out?
[18:10] <Woman in Surgical Scrubs> Do you have any further questions?
[18:11] <D. Kakaku> yeah, what else did I do?
[18:14] <Woman in Surgical Scrubs> Well, you successfully tested the remote surgical tool, and then we opened you up, and made sure you had enough food after the procedure, and when you said you felt okay and passed the first memory test, we discharged you.
[18:14] <D. Kakaku> huh, okay.
[18:15] <Woman in Surgical Scrubs> It wasn't until the trip home that you had difficulty remembering things.
[18:15] <Woman in Surgical Scrubs> Now I will say again---we can easily turn the vehicle around if you are having trouble. Would you like that?
[18:16] <D. Kakaku> ah, sure.
[18:21] *** The vehicle turns around, to make sure that D.Kakaku gets the medical care he needs, and can be discharged safely.
[20:52] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: ???
[20:53] *** An image of the Symbol of Mercury appears on a stone slab
[20:53] <???> Ahh, is it, yes, your oppositios have put down another one., now all that remain are Venus, Mercury and The Moon.
[20:55] <???> *^Venus, Mars, and The Moon
[19:27] * ~ The projector starts to power up!
[19:27] * ~ The symbol of Cheesykits Productions appears! SHAMELESSLY presenting...!!
[19:28] *** The scene opens with a view of a planet from orbit. It's an unattractive world of grey seas and mottled brown landmasses.
[19:30] *** But easily visible from orbit is the massive city that dominates a huge part of one of the continents. It's so vast that it covers hundreds of square miles and rises like a colossal ziggurat high up past the stratosphere.
[19:30] *** This is Hive Tertium.
[19:33] *** The camera angle ships a little, showing the massive form of a blocky, Imperial voidship. It's a Defiant-class light carrier. It's nearly 4000 meters in length, massing at 22 million tons with a nominal crew of almost 68000.
[19:35] <~> Prisoners are all secure, ma'am.
[19:36] *** The scene switches to the interior of the ship. It's DEFINITELY a starship of the Imperium, with its over-built systems, multiple redundancies, lack of automation, and dark and Gothic interior architecture.
[19:38] * ~ The interior layout has also been modified, with whole sections of the ship being given over to enormous barracks facilities and cavernous cargo bays bigger than football stadiums. This is a troop ship! And much of the barracks have been converted into PRISON CELLS!!
[19:38] *** Commander Helianthus has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:38] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Commander Helianthus
[19:38] *** Chibi-Leady has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:38] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Leady
[19:39] * Chibi-Leady is dressed up in a uniform of the Astra Militarum, wearing Cadian-pattern plate armor. She's walking along with Commander Helianthus as they inspect the prisoners.
[19:41] * Commander Helianthus walks along with Leady. There are lots of other guards patrolling the corridors, and several Shipgirls are being herded along the halls to new cells.
[19:41] <Commander Helianthus> I'll check for myself, if you don't mind.
[19:42] <Chibi-Leady> Of course. Makes sense, given why we're here.
[19:42] <Chibi-Leady> Be careful though. Every one of them is a filthy heretic
[19:44] *** They start passing by a bank of cells. The "cells" aren't much more than metal boxes containing a bench and a hole in the ground. There's no door either, just a mesh of welded rebar.
[19:45] * Commander Helianthus looks inside one of the cells, frowning.
[19:45] <Commander Helianthus> That one certainly is.
[19:46] *** The occupant just growls and looks pissed.
[19:46] * The occupant is now known as Kii
[19:46] <Kii> >:(
[19:48] <Commander Helianthus> Keep her intact. No "accidents".
[19:49] <Commander Helianthus> My master wants to interrogate her as soon as we reach the hive city.
[19:49] <Chibi-Leady> Sure thing. She'll get there in one piece.
[19:50] * Chibi-Leady and Commander Helianthus turn around to face the cell opposite from Kii's.
[19:52] <Commander Helianthus> ...This one, however.
[19:52] * Commander Helianthus walks up to the cell and peers inside at the girl slumped down on the bench.
[19:53] <Chibi-Leady> Make you wonder why we're even bothering shipping trash like her.
[19:54] <Chibi-Leady> It'd save a lot of dataslate work if we just carried out the execution order here and now.
[19:54] <Commander Helianthus> What do you say, criminal? Shall we put you out of your misery?
[19:54] <Chibi-Leady> And ours, you worthless heretic?
[19:55] * The girl gets up and approaches the bars.
[19:55] * The girl is now known as Z-23
[19:58] *** Z-23 looks like she's having a really bad day.
[19:58] <Z-23> >:(
[19:59] <Commander Helianthus> Well? Nothing to say?
[20:00] <Z-23> This is a mistake. My loyalty has always been to the Vater!
[20:00] <Commander Helianthus> The Vater?
[20:01] <Chibi-Leady> Her crime is that she's a heretic in a genuine sense. She's a follower of an unsanctioned divergent faith other than the Imperial Creed.
[20:01] <Chibi-Leady> As such, her kind don't worship the God-Emperor. Instead, they worship this "Vater".
[20:02] <Z-23> DO NOT INSULT THE VATER!!! D:<
[20:03] <Chibi-Leady> We'll insult your false god any time we wish, heretic.
[20:04] <Z-23> The Vater is NOT a false god! He is here! And he will come for us!
[20:05] *** Suddenly there's a muffled explosion in the distance. Followed by several shouts.
[20:05] <Commander Helianthus> Hmmm?
[20:06] * Chibi-Leady watches as one of the soldiers further down the passage quickly backs up several steps, then gets gunned down by a burst of las-rounds!
[20:06] <Chibi-Leady> Crap! We've been boarded!
[20:06] *** Alarms start to go off!
[20:06] <Commander Helianthus> Counter-attack! NOW!
[20:07] * Commander Helianthus dives for cover behind a console, drawing a pistol from within her coat.
[20:07] * Chibi-Leady readies her lasgun, ducks behind the corner of one of the cells, and starts shooting down the hallway.
[20:09] *** A group of T-Dolls rush into the hallway, firing their guns at the soldiers!
[20:11] *** You see Simonov, AK-47, A-91...OH CRAP! IT'S SQUAD VODKA!!!!
[20:13] * A-91 finishes chugging an entire bottle of vodka...then starts shooting with surprising accuracy!
[20:19] *** The battle rages for a full minute, with las-fire criss-crossing, several Guardsmen getting gunned down, and then things REALLY get intense when MP-40 starts sprinting forward through the barrage of fire, clutching a BUNCH of tied-together "potato-masher" grenades in each hand!
[20:19] <MP-40> >:D
[20:20] * Z-23 and Kii are watching all of this and quickly retreat to the back of their cells!
[20:21] * MP-40 throws the grenades! A second later a HUGE explosion sends ALL of the soldiers flying in all directions as all of the grenades go off simultaneously!
[20:21] <Chibi-Leady> @___@
[20:21] * Commander Helianthus RUNS!!
[20:22] *** The explosion has taken out the defenders, as well as wrecked the cell doors and torn open part of the floor!
[20:22] *** The T-Dolls rush up to Kii's cell and pull away the bars even more, allowing her to escape.
[20:22] <Kii> >:/
[20:23] <Simonov> Come with us. We have a way out.
[20:24] <AK-47> What do we do about that one?
[20:24] * AK-47 points at Z-23
[20:25] <Kii> Nothing. The Floofed Ones will be here to feed soon enough.
[20:26] * Kii hurries off with the T-Dolls, leaving Z-23 behind.
[20:26] * Z-23 sees that the hole in the floor is now her only way out. The camera shifts, revealing that there's another level beneath her.
[20:29] * Z-23 drops down into a wrecked passage. There's a lot of debris piled everywhere, as well as lots of bodies. Looking around she finds...a SHOVEL.
[20:29] <Z-23> ...
[20:29] <Z-23> ..WARUM???!
[20:31] *** That's not just ANY shovel though. It's an Imperial 9-70 Entrenchment Tool! Proven by the Death Korps of Krieg to be one of the deadliest and most versatile close-combat weapons in the galaxy!
[20:31] * Z-23 also finds a radio on one of the bodies.
[20:33] <Commander Helianthus> ♦ This is Commander Helianthus! Urgent support request! Traitor assault! We need immediate reinforcements in cell block 87!
[20:33] <Z-23> The Vater has answered my prayers!!
[20:33] <Z-23> :D
[20:33] <Z-23> And on the brink of execution! But how should I proceed?
[20:35] * Z-23 hurries forward, but sees that the hall soon ends in another collapsed floor. This time, it drops down into another level directly beneath this one.
[20:35] * Z-23 sees what looks like WATER at the bottom and jumps down.
[20:35] *** That's NOT water. At least not entirely.
[20:37] * Z-23 lands with a thick splash in a slow-moving stream of watery sludge. It's brown, it's warm, and it smells horrific! Printed on the wall are the words "Sewer conduit 3972A. Refuse, Reclamation and Disposal."
[20:38] <Z-23> D:
[20:39] <Z-23> >__<;;;;;;
[20:39] <Z-23> But I have no choice. If this is the only way forward...
[20:40] * Z-23 tries to pull herself up onto a narrow walkway running alongside the river of S[BLEEP]T and staggers forward.
[20:41] * Z-23 hears scurrying sounds all around her!
[20:42] *** Several Xenofluffs scurry along the overhead pipes, peering down at Z-23 with mischievous gleams in their eyes. :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:44] * Z-23 is suddenly attacked by a couple of Fluffed Ones!! From out of the darkness ahead comes SPAS-12 and NS2000! And both of them are wearing Kits on their heads!
[20:44] *** THEY'VE BEEN FLUFFED!!!
[20:48] *** THIS THEME starts playing as Z-23 hefts her shovel and prepares to fight. Oh boy...this beat can only mean ONE thing.
[20:50] <SPAS-12> >:D
[20:50] <NS2000> >:3
[20:51] * Z-23 just winds up and SMACKS NS2000 so hard across the face with the flat of the shovel that the Shotgun-girl is lifted OFF her feet and knocked SIDEWAYS!!!
[20:52] <NS2000> @___@
[20:52] * NS2000 lands with a SPLASH in the S[BLEEP]tstream!
[20:52] <SPAS-12> D:<
[20:53] * SPAS-12 dives at Z-23 and starts wrestling with her, smacking and punching at her as Z-23 jabs and stabs with the shovel!
[20:53] <Z-23> Vater give me strength! Vater give me courage! Vater grant me VICTORY!!
[20:55] *** The Kit on NS2000's head quickly pops OFF of her head, scrambles onto her chest and leaps onto the other gantry, making sure NOT to touch that awful-smelling stuff!! D:
[20:55] * SPAS-12 starts trying to pummel Z-23 to the beat of that dang song!
[20:55] * Z-23 smacks SPAS-12 in the knee!
[20:55] <SPAS-12> >__<
[20:56] * Z-23 smacks her AGAIN, this time across the stomach, causing something to burst with a loud squelch!
[20:57] * SPAS-12 staggers back, ripping at her clothes and revealing that the Twinkies she'd stashed there for later have ALL been ruined!!
[20:57] <SPAS-12> D:
[20:58] * Z-23 winds up and SMACKS SPAS-12 across the face!
[20:58] <SPAS-12> @__@
[20:59] * Z-23 smacks her in the knee again, causing SPAS-12 to lose her balance!
[20:59] * SPAS-12 flails her arms in a desperate attempt to keep from falling off the gantry!!
[20:59] <SPAS-12> Nononononononononono!!!
[21:00] <Z-23> Jajajajajajajaja!!
[21:00] <Z-23> >:D
[21:00] * Z-23 winds up and WHACKS SPAS-12 across her ASS, the flat of the shovel impacting with a sound like a cannon going off!!!
[21:01] * SPAS-12 goes FLYING forward! The Kit on her head leaps off of her and lands on the opposite side of the S[BLEEP]tstream, but SPAS-12 isn't so lucky and lands FACE-FIRST in the sludge!!!!
[21:02] *** SPAS-12 also SUBMERGES into it!
[21:04] *** There's wild thrashing underneath the fecal-fluid, then all is still.
[21:04] <Z-23> >:D
[21:05] * Z-23 hurries forward, soon coming to a ladder that leads up into a different section and OUT of the sewer tunnel.
[21:06] * Z-23 keeps the shovel with her as she escapes, leaving behind several Xenofluffs that continue to try and follow her, and NS2000 and SPAS-12.
[21:06] <NS2000> ....aaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! THAT HURT!!!!!
[21:07] * SPAS-12 suddenly pulls herself out of the sludge, completely CAKED in filth and looking like the Excremental from the movie "Dogma".
[21:07] <SPAS-12> ...
[21:07] <SPAS-12> O___O
[21:07] * SPAS-12 projectile vomits onto the floor.
[21:08] <SPAS-12> I think I've lost my appetite!
[21:09] * SPAS-12 and NS2000 pass out on the floor, and the Xenofluffs that cluster around them are HESITANT to touch them!
[21:09] <Xenofluff #3> Stinky!
[21:09] <Xenofluff #5> They be super-poopy!
[21:10] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW! The next episode of Flufftide will pick up TOMORROW!
[21:11] *** Be ready for yet more insanity, heresy, and fluffy!!
[21:11] *** Until then, good night everyone!
[19:09] * ~ The projector starts to power up!
[19:12] *** The movie picks up right where it left off, with Z-23 climbing up the metal ladder into a new area. It appears to be some kind of monitoring room, with readout panels and cogitator stations everywhere.
[19:12] * Z-23 runs through the nearest doorway into the corridor beyond. On her left is a double-thick floor-to-ceiling chainlink fence.
[19:13] * Z-23 can see beyond the fence is a doorway leading into another detention block. In the distance there are still alarms going off and lots and lots of shouting.
[19:16] <Z-23> >:(
[19:16] * Z-23 turns and runs away from the fencing and into a different section of the ship.
[19:16] <Z-23> The Imperium may be done with me, but Our Beloved Vater is not!
[19:18] *** The sound of gunfire rings out nearby. The fighting is spreading, and there are barks and yowls intermixed with the shooting as well. The Xenofluffs are directing the heretics!!
[19:20] * Z-23 peers over a balcony and sees...HORROR!!!
[19:21] *** The Xenofluffs have nailed Enterprise and brought her down!! Grim is squawking and flailing like crazy as multiple Xenofluffs pile onto him!!
[19:21] <Enterprise> AHH! AHH!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
[19:23] * Enterprise flails and makes a very weird "agony" face as several Xenofluffs who've piled onto her stomach suddenly start pulling back...AND PULL BIG LENGTHS OF SAUSAGES OUT FROM INSIDE HER SHIRT AND SKIRT!!!!!
[19:23] <Enterprise> X___x
[19:23] *** A particularly cruel baby Kit also steals Enterprise's hat.
[19:26] * Z-23 keeps running, smacking down and aside ANY Heretic T-Doll that gets in her way!
[19:26] * Commander Helianthus comes over the radio again.
[19:27] <Commander Helianthus> ♦ I need armsmen response teams in the Block 87 bay area! Blessed Throne, there's no end of them!
[19:29] * Z-23 keeps running, going down a flight of stairs and into another section of the ship before finally entering into what seems to be an observation deck above one of the cargo holds.
[19:30] * Z-23 hurries along a hallway with windows along one side, then skids to a halt as she sees movement up ahead!
[19:33] *** P7, KSVK, ART-556, and CR-21 are all charging down the hall!
[19:35] *** They ALL have their ears perked up and on full display, revealing their TAINT for all to see!
[19:35] <ART-556> FOR THE FLUFF GODS!!!! >:D
[19:37] * Z-23 baps ART-556 across the face with the handle, then WHACKS her so hard on the side of her head that the small T-Doll spins TWICE before she hits the ground!
[19:38] <ART-556> x___X
[19:38] <P7> Punish this loyalist!!
[19:39] <CR-21> I've been working out too much to be stopped by a twerp like you! >:D
[19:40] <KSVK> Thou cannot stop us, girl. The Fluff Gods are inexorable.
[19:41] * Z-23 just SMACKS KSVK across the face with the shovel, sending her cartwheeling right into the nearest wall.
[19:41] <KSVK> @___@
[19:42] <P7> :O
[19:42] <CR-21> D:<
[19:43] * CR-21 and P7 both dive onto Z-23, pushing her backwards and knocking her to the ground. As they start trying to pound on her (especially when CR-21 starts trying to bludgeon Z-23 in the head with her GYM BAG), P7 slows down and recoils as she gets a whiff of what's caked so thickly on Z-23's clothes.
[19:44] <P7> ...
[19:44] <P7> EWWWWWW!!! WHAT IS THIS?!
[19:45] * Z-23 lashes out with one of her legs and KICKS P7 squarely in the middle of her face, sending her flying backwards.
[19:45] <P7> X__X
[19:45] <CR-21> :O
[19:46] * Z-23 manages to slip free of CR-21's grasp, her body proving to be too slippery to get a firm grip of.
[19:47] * CR-21 looks at her hands in surprise, then at the "mud" that's smeared on them.
[19:47] <CR-21> ...This isn't mud we're wrestling in!!!!
[19:48] * CR-21 looks up just in time to see the flat-part of 9-70 Entrenching Tool coming at her face!
[19:48] <CR-21> o___O
[19:48] <Z-23> >:D
[19:49] <Z-23> ♫ CLANG~!!!! ♫
[19:49] * CR-21 is sent skidding backwards ten feet, where she then lays motionless and unconscious.
[19:52] <Z-23> Du bist NICHTS in der Gegenwart des Vaters!!
[19:55] * Z-23 quickly searches the T-Dolls and takes CR-21's signature assault rifle! NIMI'S GOT A GUN NOW!
[19:56] <Commander Helianthus> ♦ Where are my fething reinforcements?! Security stations are being overrun! The Fluffs are swarming through the air vents and encircling us! We'll try to hold them at prisoner containment!
[19:59] * Z-23 keeps running forward. She soon reaches a large room that looks like a cell block. Guardsmen are shooting all over the place and trying to fight back against the T-Dolls, but they're also being ambushed by Xenofluffs!!
[19:59] *** One of the Guardsmen is none other than...
[20:00] *** has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:00] <@spiritflame> konbanwa
[20:01] *** Renpha Astalion [Trooper011385@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:01] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Renpha Astalion
[20:01] <Renpha Astalion> Hold the line! HOLD THE LINE!!!
[20:03] * Renpha Astalion is joined by a few other Guardsmen who try to form a defensive line, but they're ALL pounced on from behind by tiny little Kits!
[20:04] <Random Kit> Hi! :3
[20:04] <Renpha Astalion> D:
[20:05] * Renpha Astalion cries out in mock pain as a couple of tiny Kits bite onto the side of her neck and start nibbling.
[20:06] *** Thick red liquid starts to squirt and stream from the bites!!
[20:06] <Renpha Astalion> >___<;;;;
[20:06] <Random Kit #1> Oooooo! It be molasses!!
[20:06] <Random Kit #2> Yummy syrup!
[20:09] * Renpha Astalion flails around in the truest fashion of William Shatner and goes over the side of the railing, falling to the ground below in epic slow-motion, hitting the ground with exaggerated sluggishness and coughing up a HUGE GOUT of red syrupy liquid as she strikes the ground.
[20:09] <Renpha Astalion> X___x
[20:09] *** The Xenofluffs SWARM onto her with excited yips and trills!
[20:10] <Random Kit #5> Incoming snuggle time!
[20:10] <Random Kit #9> Ooooo! Strawberry jam!!
[20:10] <Random Kit #23> Yum-yum time!!
[20:13] * Z-23 doesn't stop running. She sprints past Queen Elizabeth as she flails around helplessly with a Facehugger Kit clamped on tightly, then runs towards an open elevator.
[20:16] * Z-23 presses the controls. The doors close and the elevator starts to rise to the next level up.
[20:17] *** The sounds of fighting continue from above, and now you can make out Helianthus' voice above it all!
[20:17] <Commander Helianthus> Cut them down, for feth's sake!!!!
[20:19] *** The elevator continues to slowly rise, and the fighting sounds like it gets nasty, with Helianthus crying out several times. Then it gets very quiet.
[20:19] * Z-23 grips her rifle tightly the doors start to open.
[20:21] * Z-23 walks out into one of the "yard" areas. There are slain Guardsmen and T-Dolls strewn all over the place.
[20:21] <Commander Helianthus> >__<;;;
[20:21] * Commander Helianthus is on the ground, trying to drag herself over to her pistol which is out of reach.
[20:22] * Commander Helianthus also has a tiny Kit clamped onto her shoulder, its muzzle latched onto the side of her neck, steadily nibbling away.
[20:22] <Tiny Kit> >:3
[20:23] * Commander Helianthus looks up and sees Z-23.
[20:23] <Commander Helianthus> Great.
[20:23] <Z-23> Have you come for blood too, criminal?
[20:24] <Z-23> ^Commander Helianthus
[20:24] * Z-23 silently walks over and kneels down next to Commander Helianthus.
[20:25] * Z-23 reaches out, takes hold of the Kit with one hand by its scruff, and starts to carefully tap its nose with her other hand.
[20:25] <Tiny Kit> >:[
[20:26] <Tiny Kit> No, my Hoo-man. Go away!
[20:26] * Z-23 keeps tapping.
[20:26] * Tiny Kit tries to nip at Z-23's finger and loses its grip on Helianthus' neck!
[20:27] * Z-23 removes the little Kit with a small tug, lifts off the struggling little fuzz-ball, then sticks it onto the face of one of the deceased T-Dolls.
[20:30] *** DP-28 now has a Facehugger Kit on her!
[20:30] <DP-28> @__@
[20:30] * Commander Helianthus grabs her pistol and aims it at Z-23's face.
[20:31] <Z-23> If I'd wanted to kill you, I would have just shot you.
[20:31] <Commander Helianthus> You said...you were a loyal servant to the Throne.
[20:31] <Z-23> I am a loyal daughter to the Vater.
[20:32] <Z-23> The Vater is a loyal servant to the Throne.
[20:32] <Commander Helianthus> ...
[20:32] * Commander Helianthus struggles to her feet.
[20:32] <Commander Helianthus> The enemy of my enemy.
[20:33] <Commander Helianthus> If your Vater will fight for the Throne, will you do so as well?
[20:33] <Z-23> Ja! Of course!
[20:33] <Commander Helianthus> Very well then.
[20:34] * Commander Helianthus looks over at a large hatch in a nearby wall that has begun to open.
[20:34] <Commander Helianthus> PROVE IT.
[20:36] *** The doors open, and a swarm of T-Dolls and Big Foxes start to rush through!
[20:37] * Commander Helianthus and Z-23 begin huge running gun-battle with the horde of enemies, ducking back and forth behind cover as they retreat backwards, giving ground in order to avoid being outflanked.
[20:38] * Z-23 catches sight of sneaky Tiny Kits dropping out of overhead air vents and catches them in midair, grabbing them...then THROWING them at the faces of the approaching T-Dolls!
[20:39] * FN-49 goes down with a Facehugger Kit clamped onto her face! X__x
[20:39] *** G43 flails as she receives a Facehugger Kit too!
[20:40] *** The Tiny Kits seem quite fine with attacking T-Dolls as readily as anyone else. THE RISING FLOOF CARES NOT WHICH FACES ARE HUGGED, JUST THAT FACES ARE HUGGED!!
[20:43] <Commander Helianthus> ♦ This is Commander Helianthus! I need an urgent extraction! The heretics have overrun the ship!
[20:44] <~> ♦ Message received. Thunderhawk incoming.
[20:44] <Commander Helianthus> What is your name, criminal?
[20:45] <Z-23> I am NOT a criminal! My name is Z-23.
[20:45] <Commander Helianthus> All right. I'm giving you a chance. Cross me and you're dead, understand?
[20:45] <Z-23> I fight for the Vater. I will not be found wanting in his eyes.
[20:47] * Z-23 turns and blows away a T-Doll that was attempting to aim at Helianthus. HEY! That T-Doll's none other than UMP-9!!
[20:47] <UMP-9> @___@
[20:48] * Z-23 reloads and empties the entire clip into UMP-9 at point-blank range. >:D
[20:50] * UMP-9 's upper chest suddenly "explodes" into a chunky mess of crimson gore, which immediately attracts a swarm of Xenofluffs!
[20:51] <Xenofluff #25> Yummy!!
[20:51] <Xenofluff #50> Ooooo, they use salsa!!!
[20:51] *** The Xenofluffs SWARM onto UMP-9, and she's helpless to escape!
[20:52] * UMP-9 S-C-R-E-A-M-S~!!!!
[20:54] <~> ♦ Gunship to Commander Helianthus. We're on approach and coming in hot. Get to hangar bay #2
[20:54] <Commander Helianthus> Understood.
[20:55] * Commander Helianthus and Z-23 keep running through the halls, fighting almost every step of the way as they gun down groups of Stunt-Plushies and T-Dolls.
[20:55] <Commander Helianthus> You're actually not bad at this.
[20:56] <Z-23> Ja. I am one of the Vater's daughters of battle. Just as he is a Warrior of the Throne, so must be his daughters.
[20:57] *** They open an airlock into a large hangar bay. As they rush inside, a Thunderhawk gunship is touching down, firing its weapons and sweeping the areas with heavy bolters.
[20:58] *** The forward loading ramp drops, and out rush Javelin, Ayanami, and Laffey. All three of them start laying down HEAVY covering fire as Helianthus and Z-23 sprint towards them.
[21:02] *** Yes, the accompanying soundtrack is an awesome fusion of "Imperium Disco" and HARDBASS.
[21:03] * Z-23 fires off the last rounds in her last magazine, then skids to a halt as she reaches the edge of the boarding ramp.
[21:03] <Commander Helianthus> Well, are you coming or not?
[21:04] * Commander Helianthus is already halfway up the ramp. Meanwhile, Javelin is blasting away with a belt-fed shotgun (and loving EVERY minute of it), Ayanami is slashing away at anything getting close, and Laffey...
[21:04] *** Laffey has gotten the flamer.
[21:05] *** The HEAVY flamer.
[21:05] <Laffey> >:)
[21:06] * Laffey is weaving the flamethrower back and forth as she immolates EVERYTHING in a thirty-foot, 180-degree arc near the front of the gunship.
[21:07] <Commander Helianthus> You helped me, Z-23.
[21:07] <Commander Helianthus> Maybe I can help you. No promises.
[21:08] <Commander Helianthus> You'll probably wind up dead.
[21:08] <Z-23> You were already going to make me dead.
[21:09] <Commander Helianthus> Yes. But maybe now you can do something that will serve your Vater. And the Imperium. Help me and I can at least ensure that you have the opportunity to go just that.
[21:10] *** Z-23 nods and quickly gets onboard. Javelin, Ayanami, and Laffey follow.
[21:10] <Commander Helianthus> ♦ Closing the ramp. Brace yourselves. This is going to be a rough launch!
[21:11] *** The Thunderhawk gunship quickly lifts off, rotates 180 degrees, then BLASTS out of the launch bay.
[21:14] * Z-23 straps herself into an acceleration chair and settles in, looking warily at Javelin, Ayanami, and Laffey, who are all looking back at her with equal curiosity.
[21:14] <Z-23> :/
[21:14] <Javelin> Did you manage to escape all by yourself? How many of the heretics did you manage to purge? :D
[21:15] <Ayanami> ...You smell horrible. Like you swam within raw sewage. How did you achieve such filthiness?
[21:16] <Z-23> ...I swam within raw sewage. >__<;
[21:16] * Laffey is sitting next to Z-23 and stares at her sleepily. Then she opens a bottle of whiskey and starts pouring it all over Z-23.
[21:16] <Laffey> You need a bath.
[21:17] <Z-23> D:<
[21:19] *** The final scene shows the gunship accelerating away, and THIS SONG starts playing as it does so. The ship leaves behind the transport, and gradually makes its way towards another ship.
[21:19] *** It's the Hellesponte!
[21:25] <~> ♦ And thus ends Part One of Flufftide!
[21:26] <~> ♦ The showing dates for Part Two will be announced in due time. Until then, Cheesykits hopes you have enjoyed what you've seen so far!
[22:07] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: a somewhat thematically important park
[22:08] * Pinako is walking into the park
[22:12] <?> so the child walks into the trap
[22:13] <Pinako> Come on out!
[22:14] *** a figure walks out of the darkness
[22:14] * Pinako looks ahead
[22:16] * ? is now known as Sin
[22:16] * Sin walks into view...
[22:16] * Pinako blinks her eyes, Transformation pen at the ready.
[22:18] * Pinako raises her pen
[22:18] <Pinako> MOON TRANSFORMATION, MAKE UP!
[22:18] * Pinako has transformed into Sailor Pinako
[22:19] <Pinako> ♦ before we start this battle, I want to know what you've done to my friends!
[22:24] <Sin> you'll find out soon enough!
[22:25] * Pinako prepares her battle table and her deck.
[22:26] * Sin summons her own deck, which glow with a horrible black light
[22:27] <Pinako> ♦ No way!
[22:30] *** The battle Begins
[22:30] *** After a while, That card is finally in Sin's card hand.
[22:30] * Sin smirks
[22:31] * Pinako Looks on.
[22:33] <Pinako> ♦ (She couldn't have gotten Hell's Seal so early, could she?)
[22:33] <Pinako> (Is it why our friends haven't returned?)
[22:34] <Pinako> ♦ (if that smirk of her says something, that could be it)
[22:36] *** Will the card be played?
[22:42] * Sin plays the card!
[22:43] *** An earthquake shakes the field as a Red barrier rises up!
[22:44] *** The Barrier is adorned with Pentagrams (in the censored version, these are changed to their Exodia Doubles).
[22:44] <Pinako> ♦ What have you done?
[22:50] *** Demonic laughter is coming from the barrier as Sin's Warriors and monsters gain horns and have a pentagram glowing on each of their foreheads.
[22:53] * Pinako the battle continues for an even longer while, now with the caveat that the loser would lose their soul as well.
[22:53] *** *^
[23:05] *** the battle is reaching its end
[23:12] <Pinako> ♦ (All I have to do is whittle down her monster, it's worth 3 Victory points, but I can only hope for a tie.)
[23:13] <Pinako> ♦ Moon Warrior! Attack!
[23:13] *** The monster has a coin flip attack which can negate and deliver double the damage, will Sin perform the coinflip?
[23:15] *** Sin flips a coin into the air and catches it, tails side up
[23:16] *** could have said yes, but the coinflip is successful.
[23:16] *** Moon Warrior, Level 6's attack is negated while the monster launches the attack back, with double the power... reducing Moon Warrior's HP to 0, destroying it.
[23:17] * Pinako Holds her arms up
[23:17] *** Sin: 13 VP
[23:17] * Sin grins
[23:17] *** Pinako: 12 VP LOSE = No Warriors Remaining
[23:18] <Pinako> ♦ AGHHHHHHHHHHHHH
[23:18] *** A Dark red Pentagram surrounds Pinako and begins shocking her and covering her body in A dark smoke
[23:18] <Pinako> ♦ There's No Way!
[23:19] <Pinako> (No, I can't Let her get taken.)
[23:19] * Pinako Mentally Thumps her arms on a Pentagram before using her Transformation pen (again, mentally) on the Pentagram
[23:20] <Pinako> (With The power of the Moon, I Break The SEAL!)
[23:20] * Pinako Metally Breaks it... And switches places with the Other Pinako.
[23:20] <Pinako> ♦ (What are you doing?)
[23:20] <Pinako> (Sacrificing myself... to save you.)
[23:21] * Pinako SCREAMS!
[23:21] *** The Pentagram and smoke does its job!
[23:21] * Pinako falls to thr ground.
[23:22] *** Somewhere, in another location... a stone carving of a Youma appears on a stone card on the wall.
[23:23] <???> Non est possibile, Falsa est anima capta est.
[23:25] <???> Cum capimus animas omnium quinque... Mercurius, Venus, Luna, Mars, et Jupiter Ingredietur in mundum, nec semper crescens daemonia aequabunt potentiae.
[23:26] <???> Hactenus solus Mercurius, Mars, et Iupiter sunt, et quis iste daemon? Vtrum virtus lunae, vel anima lunae, sit in corpore daemonis?
[23:29] <???> Oppositios revoca, Sin, Nergal, Marduk, Ishtar et Nabu ex acie.
[23:29] * Pinako 's body is unmoving as the barrier removes itself.
[23:44] *** the barrier covering the battle field dies down.
[23:47] <Masaki O`Cain> what the f[BLEEP]k....
[23:47] <Masaki O`Cain> WHAT THE F[BLEEP]K
[23:48] * Pinako 's body isn't moving, but where are the oppositios?
[23:51] <Masaki O`Cain> ...f[BLEEP]k
[23:54] * Hikaru Kindai arrives
[23:54] <Hikaru Kindai> No... Not Pinako, too.
[00:00] <Masaki O`Cain> WHAT THE F[BLEEP]K
[00:01] <Hikaru Kindai> what happened? Did those oppositio sickos get to her, too?
[00:03] <Masaki O`Cain> ..I have no f[BLEEP]king idea!

[20:29] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: null
[20:29] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:29] <@spiritflame> konbanwa D. Kakaku
[20:29] * Limousine continues on its way back to the clinic, with D.Kakaku secured inside.
[20:29] *** The limousine's window is black.
[20:30] *** The viewing screen in front of D.Kakaku only shows static, and has the sound of people rushing and shouting.
[20:31] <D. Kakaku> what's going on there?
[20:31] * Limousine is on the way back to the clinic, but it hasn't stopped in days.
[20:31] *** There is no answer from the other side of the monitor, just lots of hurried, garbled speech, and rhythmic beeping.
[20:32] <D. Kakaku> eh?
[20:33] * Limousine continues on the street, its speed increasing. There's no connection to the outside world.
[20:34] *** For some reason, D.Kakaku hasn't had to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom in days, ever since the limousine left the clinic. It's seemingly driven in circles since then.
[20:35] <D. Kakaku> hmmhmm
[20:35] * Limousine continues to beep.
[20:36] * Limousine honks its horn at a steady pattern, and drives at increasing speed through the city, but the window is still dark and you cannot see outside. The acceleration is enough to push you backward into the seat.
[20:37] <D. Kakaku> woahhhohoooo
[20:38] <Limousine> A hypodermic needle suddenly emerges from the seat cushion and jabs D.Kakaku.
[20:38] *** A hypodermic needle suddenly emerges from the seat cushion, and jabs D.Kakaku.
[20:39] <D. Kakaku> agh!
[20:40] *** Another hypodermic emerges from the headrest and extends toward D.Kakaku to inject him.
[20:41] <D. Kakaku> ugh
[20:42] *** more and more hypodermics emerge from the limousine compartment. There's nowhere to go to avoid them---when you retreat from one, another one jabs you.
[20:43] * D. Kakaku gets continuously jabbed
[20:43] *** The beeps come faster.
[20:43] * Limousine compartment starts flooding with a thick, black goop.
[20:43] * Limousine speaker "Mr. Kakaku?"
[20:43] <Limousine Speaker> Are you there?
[20:45] <D. Kakaku> y-teah
[20:46] *** The black stuff makes D.Kakaku go numb where it touches him, because of cold, and it's incredibly sticky. It's even worse than tar, and pulls his limbs back into it whenever he tries to free them.
[20:46] <Limousine Speaker> Can you hear us, Mr. Kakaku?
[20:46] <D. Kakaku> y-yeah, what's going on?
[20:47] *** The black, amorphous, immobilizing material continues to drip into the limousine, now all the way up to D.Kakaku's neck.
[20:48] <Limousine Speaker> Mr. Kakaku? Please say something? Mr. Kakaku?
[20:48] <D. Kakaku> what is this stuff?
[20:48] <D. Kakaku> Hello?
[20:48] * Limousine Speaker just emits more shouting and beeping.
[20:49] *** The black goop completely covers D.Kakaku's body, immobilizing it totally, and starts to reach his lips, pouring in through countless hidden openings into the compartment where he is trapped.
[20:49] <Limousine Speaker> Please! Mr. Kakaku, please! Say something!
[20:49] <D. Kakaku> MMMMMph.
[20:49] * D. Kakaku tries moving
[20:50] <Limousine Speaker> There---I heard him! He's trying to move! I'm sure I saw it this time!
[20:51] <Limousine Speaker> Mr... Mr. Kakaku?
[20:51] * D. Kakaku tries moving some more.
[20:51] *** Your body is totally immobile now.
[20:51] <Limousine Speaker> Please! Say something!
[20:52] <D. Kakaku> HEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!
[20:52] *** The top of the limousine rips open, revealing blindingly bright light!
[20:53] <D. Kakaku> IN HEEEEEEEEEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
[20:54] <Emergency Room Staff> /The blindingly bright light slowly resolves into operating room lights.
[20:54] *** The blindingly bright light slowly resolves into operating theatre lights.
[20:54] * Emergency Room Staff , dressed in pink uniforms, lean into D.Kakaku's field of vision. "He's back! He's back!"
[20:55] <Emergency Room Staff> Mr. Kakaku? Please relax. There was a mistake. We are helping you!
[20:55] <D. Kakaku> Get me out of this go-mmmmph
[20:56] <Emergency Room Staff> Please Mr. Kakaku, you need to not move. Your blood pressure is extremely elevated! Please relax.
[20:57] <Emergency Room Staff> You'll be able to talk again in a minute!
[20:57] <Emergency Room Staff> There was a problem with the test. Your metabolism is totally different than was expected!
[20:58] <Emergency Room Staff> Here, we can help you see! Do you want a visor? A mirror?
[20:58] <Emergency Room Staff> Please don't try to move!
[20:59] <D. Kakaku> mirror please
[20:59] * Emergency Room Staff lean in, and hold a mirror in front of D.Kakaku's face, and show him the reflection of his body.
[20:59] * D. Kakaku looks at the reflection.
[20:59] *** D.Kakaku is still restrained in the black, hard-rubber sarcophagus-like device, molded to fit his body, that he was before he was put under.
[21:00] <Emergency Room Staff> There you are. Just relax. Don't try to move, please.
[21:00] <Emergency Room Staff> Everything will be alright.
[21:00] <Emergency Room Staff> You have been out for...
[21:00] * Emergency Room Staff check the clock, and then hesitate. They do not answer.
[21:01] <Emergency Room Staff> You are back now. You are going to be fine!
[21:01] <Emergency Room Staff> You were hallucinating, but you are okay. We've been watching over you the whole time.
[21:01] <D. Kakaku> oh, okay
[21:03] <A Familiar Voice> Mr Kakaku? Please say that you are alright.
[21:03] <D. Kakaku> I'm alright
[21:04] <A Familiar Voice> You are squnting a lot. Are the lights too bright? I could help with that, if you would like.
[21:04] <A Familiar Voice> I'm SUPER sorry, but we need to do this first.
[21:04] *** A gloved hand holds D.Kakaku's right eye open, and shines a penlight into his pupil.
[21:06] *** A surgical-masked face, appears in D.Kakaku's other eye that's not blinded by the light.
[21:06] * D. Kakaku the pupil looks at the light
[21:06] <A Familiar Voice> Okay, dialation looks good.
[21:06] *** The light is withdrawn.
[21:07] *** We needed to check your neural connections. Don't worry, we can make it darker for you now.
[21:07] <D. Kakaku> alright
[21:07] <A Familiar Voice> You'd like us to?
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> to what?
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> oh, right, yes please
[21:08] *** A pair of goggles is held in front of D.Kakaku's field of view, "Oh. We thought you didn't mean that, for a second." Then the goggles are brought downard, fill D.Kakaku's view, and the room seems much darker.
[21:10] *** Two snaps are heard as the goggle rig is fastened to D.Kakaku's head. "Okay, there you are. We'll bring you up to brightness slowly."
[21:10] <D. Kakaku> okay
[21:11] * Operating Room Staff push a button, and the goggles whir softly. The room turns pitch black.
[21:11] <Operating Room Staff> Okay, setting them to open over a period of a couple of minutes, and you'll be back up to seeing without pain.
[21:11] <A Familiar Voice> Mr. Kakaku. You are very fortunate. There was a problem with the test.
[21:12] <A Familiar Voice> May I speak to you about it? I'd very much like to record your answers, is that okay?
[21:12] <Operating Room Staff> Yes, we were really worried about you!
[21:12] <D. Kakaku> oh, sure
[21:13] <A Familiar Voice> Wonderful, wonderful. Ladies, set up the microphone!
[21:13] <Operating Room Staff> Yes Dr. Sakamoto!
[21:13] * Operating Room Staff can be hears moving around, and there though D.Kakaku cannot see, there are a couple of clunking noises in the darkness on either side of his head.
[21:14] <A Familiar Voice> Very well, start the recording.
[21:14] <Operating Room Staff> Recoding Started
[21:15] <A Familiar Voice> Aya Sakamoto reporting. Patient recovered. Remote-Operated-Anesthesia-Aparatus test failed due to unknown reasons. Investigtion beginning at 8:15 pm.
[21:15] <A Familiar Voice> Mr. Kakaku, we are of course very sorry for what happened, but your metabolism was drastically outside of human norms, to a scale we couldn't predict.
[21:15] <A Familiar Voice> Do you feel okay now?
[21:16] <D. Kakaku> yeah, I feel okay now.
[21:16] <Operating Room Staff> Okay, now if you cannot feel your body just yet, that is normal!
[21:17] <A Familiar Voice> Yes, yes, that is right.
[21:17] *** The goggles D.Kakaku is wearing continuously hum softly, and the room starts becoming discernable.
[21:18] <A Familiar Voice> Mr. Kakaku... you briefly had a higher metabolism than a 5 year old? Can you think of ANY reason why this might be?
[21:18] <A Familiar Voice> Are you taking any medication that you did not talk to us about?
[21:18] <D. Kakaku> maybe the unexpected needles.
[21:18] <A Familiar Voice> Those wee IVs Mr.
[21:19] <A Familiar Voice> ...Mr. Kakaku.
[21:19] <A Familiar Voice> We needed to hydrate you. I'm referring to what happened when you first entered the automata. It took you MUCH longer to enter induction than normal.
[21:19] <A Familiar Voice> Has anything happened recently to change your metabolism?
[21:19] * Operating Room Staff have all stopped moving.
[21:20] * A Familiar Voice doesn't speak. The room is very quiet.
[21:20] <D. Kakaku> no, it was completely unexpected
[21:20] <A Familiar Voice> Are you... sure?
[21:21] <A Familiar Voice> You had the metabolism of a toddler. I've never seen anything like it.
[21:21] <A Familiar Voice> Mr. Kakaku... you may leave at this moment if you wish, but for the sake of the your safety and ours, we really need to know something... why did you ask, before the procedure, if we had already worked with people with "unusual abilities?"
[21:21] <D. Kakaku> pretty sure
[21:21] <D. Kakaku> oh, umm, well
[21:22] <D. Kakaku> I kinda made a watch that can do something.
[21:22] <Operating Room Staff> "Clients with powers," that was what you said.
[21:22] <A Familiar Voice> Could it have changed your biology?
[21:23] <D. Kakaku> hmm? no, not really.
[21:23] * A Familiar Voice sounds really sad. "Are you sure?"
[21:23] <D. Kakaku> pretty sure, I'll even show you my watch.
[21:24] * Operating Room Staff lean in. "Why did you ask us if we had worked with clients "with powers," right before you proved almost immune to, and then supersensensitive to, the medicine we were giving you?
[21:24] <A Familiar Voice> It is still on your wrist.
[21:24] <A Familiar Voice> Mr. Kakaku, we are EXTREMELY concerned for you. You have been unconscious for a very very long time!
[21:25] <D. Kakaku> huh? hmm, maybe I messed with it in my nightmare, you want to se how it works?
[21:25] *** a surgically-masked face leans into D.Kakaku's field of view.
[21:25] * A Familiar Voice is now known as Dr. Sakamoto
[21:25] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku, I just want to hear what happened. What occurred here was very dangerous, and unprecedented.
[21:25] <D. Kakaku> mmm,yeah
[21:26] <Dr. Sakamoto> We need to understand what's going to happen before we run tests. All of your biology didn't match what was in our records.
[21:26] * D. Kakaku tries moving his hand to the watch.
[21:26] *** D.Kakaku's arms are held securely at his side.
[21:27] <Operating Room Staff> What---What are you trying to do, Mr. Kakaku? Please lie still.
[21:28] <D. Kakaku> oh, okay
[21:28] * D. Kakaku lies still
[21:28] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku... I'm trying to go on record here---what does your watch do? Why would it have affected the experiment? Do you think it could have?
[21:29] <Operating Room Staff> We don't want any trouble, please.
[21:29] <D. Kakaku> don't worry, there's no trouble.
[21:30] <D. Kakaku> I don't think it could have affected anything, my hands weren't near it the whole time.
[21:30] <Operating Room Staff> .........
[21:30] <Dr. Sakamoto> ............
[21:31] <D. Kakaku> but, if you'd like to know what it does without me moving.
[21:31] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku, this clinic cannot help you if you are not able to tell us the truth, especially when it might put you in danger. I'm so very sorry.
[21:31] <Operating Room Staff> Wait, what? Yes, please tell us, unless it's dangerous to know!
[21:32] <Dr. Sakamoto> Yes please! We really need to know!
[21:32] <D. Kakaku> turn the dial on the watch a bit, whichever direction you prefer.
[21:33] <Operating Room Staff> Mr. Kakaku... we absolutely cannot endanger you again.
[21:33] <D. Kakaku> you won't.
[21:34] * D. Kakaku 's watch does show the time, but the dial has "Sh" and "Gr" on it. Sh on the left, Gr on the right.
[21:34] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku, this is a place of research and medicine! We absolutely cannot do something like that without knowing the risks. There's not a woman in this room who would ever do that!
[21:35] <D. Kakaku> okay.
[21:35] <Operating Room Staff> That's right! Your body is so far outside the norm it's unrecorded in all medicine!
[21:35] *** The goggles, btw, have cleared up and you can comfortably view the room now.
[21:35] <D. Kakaku> Sh to shrink, Gr to grow.
[21:36] <Dr. Sakamoto> .......
[21:36] <D. Kakaku> oh man, I can finaly see the room now.
[21:36] <Operating Room Staff> ...........
[21:36] *** The staff and nurses are in your field of view, and though you cannot see their faces, their eyes look terrified. There's a microphone suspended above your head by a stand, and a little red light on it.
[21:36] <D. Kakaku> hmmm?
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> what is it?
[21:37] *** They look at each other and do not answer.
[21:38] <D. Kakaku> I'll stay still if you want.
[21:38] <Operating Room Staff> You are... saying that your watch can give you superpowers. That... that it's a transformation item, isn't it?
[21:38] <D. Kakaku> I.. guess it kinda is.
[21:39] <D. Kakaku> but it's only one set.
[21:39] <D. Kakaku> I don't gain heat vision from it or anything.
[21:39] <Dr. Sakamoto> You must have used it before the test, didn't you?
[21:40] <Dr. Sakamoto> THAT is why your body is unlike any human any of us have ever seen, isn't it?
[21:40] <D. Kakaku> I used it before the test, yeah.
[21:40] <Dr. Sakamoto> Not the LAST test, when your baselines were set, but only before THIS test. And THAT is why the dosage affected you the way it did.
[21:40] <Operating Room Staff> Of course.
[21:40] * Operating Room Staff look at each other nodding, but are still afraid.
[21:41] * Operating Room Staff look at the microphone, and then at one another.
[21:41] <D. Kakaku> mmhmm, not before the last one, before this one.
[21:41] <Dr. Sakamoto> That's why the metabolism was so far off. And then, when you relapsed, and had normal metabolism, that's why it took you SO LONG to wake up, and why you barely did.
[21:42] <Operating Room Staff> You hallucinated a lot, Mr. Kakaku. We were very frightened for you.
[21:42] <D. Kakaku> thank you for caring for me.
[21:43] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku, you placed your life in our hands! Of course we cared for you! But NOBODY is capable of doing that correctly if you don't tell them you are superhuman some of the time!
[21:44] * Dr. Sakamoto looks at the other medical staff. "This is my fault. He asked if we had worked on somebody with powers, and I didn't look further. You have done nothing wrong. This is my fault."
[21:44] * D. Kakaku nods, then remains still.
[21:45] * Dr. Sakamoto 's voice sounds like it is about to break. Some of the medical staff disappear from D.Kakaku's view, and their footsteps can be heard walking over to her.
[21:45] <Dr. Sakamoto> Your watch? You say it can make you shrink and grow?
