[21:01] <13@DeathStar> Stardate: RESUMATION
[21:01] <13@DeathStar> Location: Planet of the Progenitors
[21:01] <13@DeathStar> Focused Location: Outside the Palace
[21:02] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind dashes in at Drasek again, swinging the Rune Blade sharp and fast at his neck area, aiming for a decipation.
15[21:02] * 13@Drasek shifts his body slightly and pulls his head low, so the blade would go completely overhead. Then he would shift his left foot forward and slam his fist forward for Wind's stomach.
[21:03] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind flips up over the punch, spinning in the air and swinging the sword down at the ground, unleashing a wave of water at Drasek
15[21:04] * 13@Drasek glances over his shoulder and then begins to run away from the water, giving enough time for the wave to die down enough for him to spring off of the ground and barely twist overtop of it, shifting his body around in the air to land on his feet.
[21:04] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind lands as Drasek does his dodging, springing forward at him, swinging his sword at him again as he lands on the ground, twisting the blade to aim for his stomach rea.
[21:04] <13@DeathStar> *area
15[21:06] * 13@Drasek pulls both of his arms up, palm side out so the rune blade would slam into the hidden blades. The force of the strike would send him sliding back and he would try to push forward to send the Rune Blade up high, kicking his leg out for the side of Wind's knee.
[21:06] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind twists the sword so it doens't get knocked out, and he does a quick slash back out, aiming for Drasek's leg
15[21:07] * 13@Drasek pulls his leg back, though he isn't fast enough to avoid the full attack and gets a cuts across his thigh. He grits his teeth and takes a step forward with his opposite leg, cutting upward as the hidden blade comes out of the area on his left arm.
[21:08] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind shifts backwards on the defensive to avoid the attack. He hops back twice quickly, then swings the sword, sending out a holy beam at Drasek
15[21:09] * 13@Drasek tenses and drops his body to the right, rolling up to one knee, then pushes his finger out and shoots a beam of hyperspace towards Wind's leg.
[21:10] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind ports to the right to avoid it.
[21:10] <13@DeathStar> <Wind> You're losing.
15[21:10] * 13@Drasek shakes his hand and stands up. 1Losing is relevant.
[21:10] <13@DeathStar> <Wind> The relevance being if you lose here, your friends may die.
[21:11] <13@Drasek> Even if I win here, if i've not got the energy, they could still die. It's a tricky situation, right?
[21:11] <13@DeathStar> <Wind> It's why you should stop losing and win.
[21:12] <13@Drasek> Brilliant advice. I'll keep that in mind. 6He tenses his body and then blurs forward coming up from behind wind to slash out for his back.
[21:12] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind approaches Drasek, holding the Rune Blade in his hands, twirling it. Once DRasek does this, he blurs quickly around to parry the strike, sliding back.
[21:13] <13@DeathStar> <Wind> There is one universal constant I've come to learn. 6* He notes, twisting his stance to gain balance.
15[21:13] * 13@Drasek grits his teeth and breaks off, throwing another slash for Wind's left this time. 1Yeah mate? What's that?
[21:14] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind parries with a quick spin, blurring behind Drasek, and he stabs out at his back side. "Our origins are meaningless. We all come from something, but it's what we end up becoming that defines us. What defines you?"
15[21:15] * 13@Drasek is forced to use the blurring affect to twist around quick enough to parry, now the one sliding back. 1You said it yourself before, mate. Those people, they're all I have.
[21:16] <13@DeathStar> <Wind> If that's the case --- give all that you have to win. 6* Wind holds up the Rune Blade, and seems to be preparing a finishing move.
15[21:16] * 13@Drasek narrows his eyes and holds his hands back, probabling charging up something of his own. 1I hope Megumi can forgive me.
[21:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind rips out the Holy Rune, tossing it up into the air, then swings the Rune BLade once, unleashing the remaining runes all at once to fire an beam attack at Drasek
15[21:18] * 13@Drasek slams his hands together, a shockwave resounding out as he pushes his whole body forward and emits a giant beam of hyperspace towards Wind. It seems he's pushing his all into this.
[21:19] <13@DeathStar> 6* The two beam attacks collide, and Drasek's hyperspace slams through the Rune Blade's collective attack to strike Wind, smashing through him, leaving a hole of hyperspace energy that flickers weakly in his gut. At the same time, Drasek's body begins to fail on him from poison overload.
15[21:20] * 13@Drasek has his teeth clenched and is focus, but the poison overload causes him to stumble and he falls to one knee, then the other and falls forward to catch himself with his hands.
[21:20] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind drops the Rune Blade and holds up his right hand, catching the holy rune, which still has it's energy since he took it out of the Rune Blade. "Check..mate..."
15[21:21] * 13@Drasek breathes heavily, and slowly looks up. 1N...no...not yet.
[21:23] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind stumbles forward. "You play...a good game..." 6* He picks up Drasek by his collar, lifting him up with his freehand, then turns his right hand into hyperspace energy, still clutching the rune, and rams it through Drasek's chest, placing the rune inside and yanking his hand back out. Drasek's chest wound would heal instantly, as well as his poison levels. Wind drops him
15[21:23] * 13@Drasek falls to a knee, catching himself. He widens his eyes oddly. 1Th..The bloody hell?
[21:24] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind stumbles back and leans against the palace wall, his gut still exposed. "The Holy Rune can heal..." 6* He notes. "As long as it has energy."
15[21:25] * 13@Drasek pushes himself to his feet, eyeing Wind oddly. 1Then you should've healed yourself some, what are you playing at?
[21:25] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind waves his hand once. "Maybe I'm the wrong element affinity."
15[21:26] * 13@Drasek shakes his head slightly. 1...you stay alive. I've got some people to help.
[21:26] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind nods once, then slumps to sit down
15[21:27] * 13@Drasek seems to still be a bit confused at all of this, but shakes his head and begins to run for the entrance to catch up with the others.
[21:27] <13@DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
[21:28] <13@DeathStar> Focused Location: Palace
[21:28] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr peers up at the stairway, as Darien and Chad arrive.
[21:28] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Even money says they're at the top.
[21:28] <13Kit> <Megumi> Then what are we waiting for?
[21:28] <13Chad`Winters> A joke. Hilarious. 6He eyes Zephyr and Megumi
[21:29] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr shifts and moves up the stairs.
[21:29] <13Kit> 6Megumi moves alongside Zephyr.
[21:29] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I could have said odd money.
[21:29] <13Chad`Winters> You could've. 6He starts moving up the stairs
[21:30] <13@DeathStar> 6 Darien moves after them. The next floor has no visible stairway, and seems to be a large open area due to the ruins falling down, though some walls are still up, like the outer walls, and a few inner ones
[21:31] <13Kit> 6Megumi tchs and looks for a way that should be up even without a staircase
[21:32] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien moves along, peering. There's a few holes in the ceiling above them, from decay.
15[21:32] * 13Chad`Winters clicks his tongue as he eyes the area. 1"Great..."
[21:32] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr lets out a low breath as she walks along.
[21:32] <13Kit> <Megumi> It is fine." 6She stops and focuses for a moment, then begins orchestrating fallen blocks and stone from areas of the ruins, creating spiral staircases to the gaps in the floor, filling in with crystal when necessary.
[21:33] <13Chad`Winters> No it's not. Strategically it's not a good place to be right now.
[21:33] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr peers at the staircase, then hurries up quickly.
[21:34] <13Kit> 6Megumi takes another of the staircases, not finding it sound for them to all travel up the same one
[21:34] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes one, then taps it
15[21:34] * 13Chad`Winters moves upto one, glancing at it than starts moving up it
[21:34] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien shrugs and moves up the staircase as well. The next floor is much the same, with no staircases, as if someone is purposely making this difficult.
[21:35] <13Kit> <Megumi> Tch, again..?
15[21:35] * 13Chad`Winters clicks his tongue as he steps off onto the next floor. 1"Convenient way to tired someone out."
[21:36] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr stops again, then scowls. She moves along, finding the rubble of a staircase
[21:36] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Probably Megumi specifically.
[21:36] <13Kit> 6Megumi eyes Darien. 1"Me, huh..?"
[21:36] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Not many of us can make things.
15[21:36] * 13Chad`Winters slides his hand along his belt, slipping some stuff away. 1"Makes sense, she the most dangerous."
15[21:36] * 13Chad`Winters glances towards at the ceiling.
[21:37] <13Kit> <Megumi> Not because I want to be..." 6She crosses her arms.
[21:37] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr tenses, then leaps up to the next floor, pulling herself up where the staircase once was.
[21:37] <13Chad`Winters> Take it as a compliment. It means they're threatened by you. 6He eyes Zephyr and makes his way towards where she leapt up
[21:38] <13Kit> 6Megumi sighs a little, then eyes Zephyr do so and takes a similar method, albeit less straightforward... springing to take several steps along the wall and leap up diagonally trying to grab the next floor
[21:38] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr helps Megumi up. Darien eyes them, then crosses his arms
15[21:39] * 13Chad`Winters slides his hand along the left side of his belt and twirls a small rod, it expanding out.
[21:39] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> You and I aren't cool anymore.
[21:39] <13Kit> <Megumi> Hee... Is it not pollite for the men to lift the women up?
[21:40] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Not if we're stronger.
[21:40] <13Kit> 6Megumi reaches back and takes out the emerald weapon, fashioning a spear. Then rears back and slams it into the wall halfway down. 1"Come on, Darien."
[21:40] <13Chad`Winters> Says you. 6He glances at Darien and presses one end against the ground and twists something with his thumb, the staff expanding and sending him up through the hole
[21:40] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Do you have tail, too? 6* He mutters.
[21:41] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes the spear, then tenss, leaping up and grabbing the spear. He begins to swing it back and forth like the PRince, then throws himself up to the next level.
15[21:41] * 13Chad`Winters blinks as he lands on the next floor. 1"Did he ask me if I had a tail?"
[21:41] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Mmhmm.
[21:41] <13Chad`Winters> I suppose some might consider it a tail. 6He glances around the new room.
[21:41] <13Kit> 6Megumi tilts her head in confusion
[21:42] <13@DeathStar> 6* The part of the palace expends forward along the cliffside, however, 30 feet of the palace is meeting, leaving a gap from one side to the next, and a gaping hole that leads to the rocky cliffside below where the ocean meets
[21:42] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien dusts himself off.
15[21:43] * 13Chad`Winters glances at Darien. 1"Yes, I have a tail." He moves towards to where their side ends
[21:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr approaches the gap, peering down at the ocean below
[21:43] <13Kit> 6Megumi retrieves the emerald weapon, then studies the gap. 1"...Well, we could get across, Zephy."
[21:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes Chad, then just walks to the gap.
[21:44] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Not sure if I could make that jump
[21:44] <13Kit> <Megumi> Other form.
[21:44] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Oh. Right. 6* She closes her left eye a moment
[21:45] <13Chad`Winters> Thirty feet roughly...6He glances at Megumi.
[21:45] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I wonder how stable this palace is now.
[21:45] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes their section
[21:45] <13Kit> <Megumi> Does not seem very.
15[21:45] * 13Chad`Winters eyes Darien than begins taking steps backwards
[21:45] <13@DeathStar> 6 *Zephyr eeps and steps back.
[21:45] <13Kit> 6Megumi eyes the two puzzledly
[21:46] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I'm sure you can use that staff to get across, Chad.
[21:47] <13Kit> <Megumi> I could get us across, however it seems that from your comments it would be wiser for me not to.
[21:47] <13Chad`Winters> Yeah...6He holsters his gun and pulls out a cord with a spear on one end and slams it into the ground.
15[21:48] * 13Chad`Winters takes a deep breathe as he backs up, his eyes darting around as they begin calculating
[21:48] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien watches Chad now, clearly curious
[21:48] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr peers at Chad, then across. "Becareful."
15[21:49] * 13Chad`Winters looks at Zephyr, his expression softening slightly. 1"Of course." 6He takes a deep breath and hops forward, breaking into a sprint towards the gap, the staff held infront of him.
[21:49] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> This will either be very amazing, or very tragic.
[21:49] <13Kit> <Megumi> We will not let him die.
15[21:50] * 13Chad`Winters swings the staff infront of and into the ground, his thumb twisting something, causing it to expand and hopefully catapault him upwards in an arc
[21:50] <13@DeathStar> 6* Chad lands on the other side, barely, and the palace floor begins to crumble under him
15[21:51] * 13Chad`Winters scrambles to try and regain his footing and kick himself off the crumbling ground and forward
[21:51] <13@DeathStar> 6* A part of the floor falls, making it 31 feet now, but Chad is fine
[21:52] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Well, he did it
15[21:52] * 13Chad`Winters takes several breathes and unhooks the cord from his belt and attaches it to another spear end and slams it into the ground, several feet ahead of him.
[21:52] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien motions at the girls. "Ladies' first."
[21:53] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr rubs her eye, then looks at Megumi
[21:53] <13Kit> 6Megumi pauses, then nods to Darien and runs forward, leaping from the ground a ways before grabbing the rope and dropping down to hold onto it upside down-- moving along it quickly using hands and the back of her knees
[21:54] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> .... 6* He tilts his head like Erevis, watching
[21:54] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr moves out next, walking across the rope after Megumi reaches the other side, and moves across by balancing
15[21:55] * 13Chad`Winters waits on the other end, ready to act incase someone falls off
[21:55] <13@DeathStar> 6* She shifts her hands into her pockets after a quarter of the way, then begins to move quickly, apparantly not afraid of slipping
[21:56] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Great.... 6* He eyes everyone doing it like it's nothing. He shifts off and grabs the rope, and hangs off, climbing across. Fuck walking.
[21:56] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr steps up to Chad on the other side, glancing back.
[21:57] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien climbs up on the other side, taking a few breaths
[21:57] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Well. That was nothing
[21:58] <13Chad`Winters> You could do the leaping across next time than. 6He turns, moving along now
[21:58] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien snorts and follows Chad. Zephyr moves after quickly. There's another set of stairs ahead, moving up higher along the cliff side.
15[21:59] * 13Chad`Winters eyes the stairs and starts moving up them, staying along the wall cliff.
[21:59] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien follows after Chad. The palace groans a bit now and again as they go higher.
[21:59] <13Kit> 6Megumi starts getting anxious, trailing behind the brave souls, but wanting to run ahead. She eyes Zephyr.
[22:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr looks at Megumi, then grins suddenly, grabbing her hand, and runs up past Chad and Darien
[22:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes them. "Great."
[22:00] <13Kit> <Megumi> Z-Zephy..!?
[22:00] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Come on.
[22:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Once on the next floor area, another set of stairs can be seen, so Zephyr hurries up them.
[22:00] <13Kit> <Megumi> The others, though..!
15[22:01] * 13Chad`Winters eyes them, moving ahead so fast, he glances back at Darien. 1"What the hell?" He starts moving faster now
[22:01] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Apparantly someone is impatient and doesn't care if this place comes down
[22:01] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien follows quicker.
[22:02] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Hee. They'll hurry.
[22:02] <13Chad`Winters> I don't...6He makes a face, probably processing it all.
[22:02] <13@DeathStar> 6* Once they reach the next floor, a set of doors can be seen, closed.
[22:03] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr eyes the doors, then charges at them.
[22:04] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien and Chad would catch up a moment later.
15[22:04] * 13Chad`Winters slows down slightly as he's uses this moment to try and catch his breath
[22:05] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr kicks out at the doors and knocks them ajar open. The room seems to be some sort of audience chamber, with a chair up ahead. Also in the room is Berk and Ao. Berk is holding Erevis by the back of the neck, using another arm to press her hands against a door on the far wall
[22:05] <13Kit> 6Megumi shakes her head and resolves to go with Zephyr determinedly.
[22:05] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien glances ahead, wincing as she opens the doors violently.
15[22:05] * 13Chad`Winters raises a brow.
[22:06] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao glances behind her, and looks annoyed that Wind failed.
[22:07] <13@DeathStar> 6* The door begins to flicker and glow from Erevis' touch, and the area shakes a bit as it slides open. Ao takes Erevis from Berk, and Erevis uses this moment to glance behind her to eye Megumi and the others. <Ao> Slow them down. Kill them if you have to. 6* She yanks Erevis through, who seems to be drugged as she doesn't fight back much
[22:08] <13Kit> <Megumi> Wait! You know not what you are doing, Ao!
15[22:08] * 13Chad`Winters eyes Darien now. 1"Kill them if you have to?"
[22:08] <13@DeathStar> 6* The giant Progenitor turns to face them, approaching them.
[22:08] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> It seems what we've seen so far is their good graces, eh?
[22:08] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr forms two hand guns, eyeing the Progenitor blocking their path.
[22:09] <13Kit> 6Megumi sighs and looks to Berk, cracking her knuckles. 1"I know in proper graces I would be going after beloved, but... I am going to have to ask you to let me deal with this guy."
[22:09] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> Are you crazy? We can handle him. Go save Erevis.
[22:09] <13Chad`Winters> Sounds like a bad plan Megumi.
[22:09] <13Chad`Winters> You heard Zephyr. Go after Erevis.
[22:09] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I like how we're volunteered, but she's right. We can win.
[22:10] <13Kit> <Megumi> I am not crazy. That which is 'up my sleeve' as Winters put it, was developed to fight against this guy.
[22:10] <13@DeathStar> <Zephyr> And if we can't stop Ao and Erevis if she goes evil? Think about that one?
[22:10] <13Chad`Winters> It's simple, Megumi. If they activate her progenitor side, we can't stop her. You can.
[22:10] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr closes her left eye, annoyedly.
15[22:11] * 13Chad`Winters quickly unhoslters his gun and raises it, firing a shot for Berk's head.
[22:11] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk lets the show collide. He lifts his own hands, firing large beams of hyperspace at the team.
[22:11] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien curses and twists throws himself to the side to avoid it. Zephyr drops low.
[22:11] <13Kit> 6Megumi jerks and leaps out of the way, rolling with a groan. 1"..."
15[22:11] * 13Chad`Winters tenses up and he leaps to avoid it.
[22:12] <13@DeathStar> 6* The wall of the palace is blown out; it seems that was the wall connected to the cliffside, as rock is visible now
[22:12] <13Kit> 6Megumi gets back up quickly and tensedly poises. 1"...Urgh. You better all hurry up and join me then. I will feel really stupid if I developed a way to beat this guy just to go on alone." 6She twitches, then moves to dash along the good side of the room for the other end.
[22:12] <13@DeathStar> 6* The entire area shakes again, becoming more unstable.
15[22:13] * 13Chad`Winters pushes himself up, his eyes quickly darting around. 1"This is going to be tedious."
[22:13] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien gets the Rune Blade ready.
[22:13] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Fact. The longer we fight him, the better chance the area falls.
[22:13] <13Kit> 6Megumi pauses, then turns and lobs the emerald sphere at Darien. 1"Starr, catch!"
[22:14] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien twists to catch it, blinking at it.
[22:14] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> You're going to go defenseless?!
[22:14] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk fires a beam toward Megumi now
[22:15] <13Kit> <Megumi> No, that object is just useless to me right now. Do not worry.." 6She sprints forward some to dodge. 1"I am fine." 6She then moves to continue on
[22:15] <13@DeathStar> 6* Another wall is hit, blowing it out, revealing open air. Probably the ocean side
[22:15] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> ... 6* He just tosses the Rune Blade to Chad
[22:15] <13@DeathStar> 6* Behind them, arriving finally, is none other than Drasek
15[22:16] * 13Chad`Winters grabs the Rune blade, clicking his tongue.
[22:16] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien forms a rapier with the emerald sphere.
15[22:16] * 13Chad`Winters aims his mod. gun and fires a shot for infront of Berk's left foot
[22:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* The ground gets a dent. Berk fires another beam at the team, at the floor
[22:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr's eyes widen and she dashes forward into the room, leaping over the beam
15[22:17] * 13Chad`Winters eyes go wide and he moves to try and get away from the ground zero of the blast
[22:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien shifts and moves forward as well, rolling along to the other part of the room
[22:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* The floor is blown out, and Drasek falls back out of sight.
[22:18] <13Chad`Winters> Idea.
[22:18] <13@DeathStar> 6* Behind them, the lower parts of the palace seem to be falling apart.
[22:18] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> What's thta?!
[22:19] <13Chad`Winters> Follow my lead. 6He slides the rune blade between the back of his belt and grabs Ebony switching out clips.
[22:19] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr looks behind her, probably worried about Drasek
[22:19] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Right, follow your lead. 6* Darien says it sarcastically, but gets ready
15[22:20] * 13Chad`Winters aims both guns at Berk and quickly charges them then aims at the ground below Berk, firing two overcharged shots for the ground beneath his feet
[22:20] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> You seriously want to take the floor out from under us?
[22:20] <13Chad`Winters> Just him.
[22:20] <13@DeathStar> 6* The ground is hit, and the room's support shakes again
[22:21] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Let me remind you that this place is unstable.
[22:21] <13Chad`Winters> Either way he'll take the floor out before us.
[22:21] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk fires a beam of hyperspace at Chad
15[22:21] * 13Chad`Winters tenses and leaps to the side, heading more inward now.
[22:22] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk flies up in the air and fires a beam down at the floor, blowing out a huge hole.
[22:22] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien stumbles as the room shakes, and the hole begins to get larger and larg.
15[22:22] * 13@Drasek would appear back on the floor with the others as if almost in a blur, he dusts off his suit, eyeing the floor.
15[22:22] * 13Chad`Winters slides along the floor, eyeing Berk, flying. 1"...Did you know he could fly?" He gets up and starts moving away from the expanding hole
[22:23] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> They do so much I tend to lose track.
[22:23] <13@Drasek> I leave for a few minutes and you lot bring down the place. Brilliant.
[22:23] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk lands a moment later on the side of the room by the door onward
[22:23] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr stumbles a bit. The walls even crack a bit as the floor falls out
15[22:23] * 13@Drasek begins to moves away from the hole and towards Berk and the door.
[22:24] <13@DeathStar> 6* Sadly, the hole is between them and Berk. To get to Berk, one has to go around the hole
15[22:24] * 13Chad`Winters takes a deep breath.
[22:25] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Tell me, how long do you think this room has left?
15[22:25] * 13@Drasek slows to a stop and eyes the hole. He then begins to move quickly around the side, trying to get past the hole before it extends too far.
[22:25] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr tenses and jumps over it to land near Drasek. Berk fires a beam at them as they closer
[22:25] <13Chad`Winters> Not long enough. 6He holsters his mod. gun and pulls out the Rune blade.
[22:25] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I think your plan will work, if we get him to fall down with the room.
[22:25] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Bury him.
[22:26] <13Chad`Winters> Ceiling.
15[22:26] * 13@Drasek pulls up his hand to create a shield and deflect the beam upward. He makes a mental tisk as using so much hyperspace already.
[22:26] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Risky.
[22:26] <13Chad`Winters> Other options?
[22:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* The beam hits the ceiling, blowing out a hole. Pieces of the palace higher up begins to fall down into the room
[22:27] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Looks like Drasek beat us to it!
[22:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk peers upward a moment.
15[22:27] * 13@Drasek glances up and lets out a breath. 1Uh. Oops?
[22:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr balances herself, then dives out of the way of falling debris
[22:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk charges Drasek
15[22:28] * 13Chad`Winters tenses as he tries to not get crushed.
[22:28] <13@DeathStar> 6* The room begins to slant a bit after a bit, the hole in the floor getting bigger now as pieces of debris come down
15[22:28] * 13@Drasek eyes Berk and glances left and right, getting his bearings.
[22:28] <13@DeathStar> 6* Behind Drasek is the hole, to his left and right is enough space to dodge.
15[22:29] * 13Chad`Winters eyes Drasek then holsters Ebony and pulls out a small explosive.
15[22:29] * 13@Drasek takes a few steps forward, as the hole is getting bigger and he eyes Berk and holds up his hands as if he plans on stopping the beast.
[22:29] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien moves closer to the door that Meg and Ao went through, letting Drasek be a distraction. A piece of debris clips him, though, and he tumbles onto the floor, falling through a hole that is made, grabbing the edge and hanging
[22:30] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk prepares to ram Drasek
[22:30] <13Chad`Winters> DARIEN! 6He tenses as he tries to move towards him
[22:30] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr peers back at Chad and Darien. "Chad..." 6* She moves toward them, too
[22:31] <13@DeathStar> 6* Chad would reach Darien, but the floor is about to break under him, and dump Darien for good.
[22:31] <13Chad`Winters> Zephyr, fire at it when I tell you to. 6He twists and turns, hurling the explosive at a piece of remainig cieling above the hole and behind Drasek.
15[22:31] * 13@Drasek shakes his head slightly and laughs once. 1Well luv. I've never fought a train before. 6He says out to Zephyr as Berk come in. He drops back, reaching out to grab onto Berk, and thrust his foot upward into his gut so that he can pivot and toss him over.
15[22:31] * 13Chad`Winters reaches out to grab Darien and pull him up.
[22:32] <13@DeathStar> 6* As Drasek grabs onto him, Berk spreads his arms and goes hyperspace, twisting their velocity to ram into the wall instead of into the hole. The wall shatters and breaks, Berk going back to normal and hanging with Drasek on the edge, the ocean below them
[22:32] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr nods, getting her gun ready. Darien takes Chad's arm and pulls up as well. He gets up right as the floor ebgins to break, so he shoves forward with Chad to roll them away.
15[22:32] * 13@Drasek hangs there weakly, being completely outsmarted by the supposedly big and dumb one. He hangs on tight, eyeing Berk, looking for a weakspot, but obviously not finding much.
15[22:33] * 13Chad`Winters rolls with Darien, his eyes darting around as he tries to figure out what happened.
[22:33] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk steps back a moment, to get himself away from the edge, giving Drasek a 2 second window, then fires a beam at Drasek
[22:33] <13@DeathStar> 6* The room tilts again, more toward the ocean side, giving them a good slant that can be tough to manuever, but maintain one's position
15[22:34] * 13Chad`Winters shifts his feet to keep himself from sliding towards the hole. 1"We need to get Drasek back up here, this might still work.
15[22:34] * 13@Drasek takes that two second window with the grain of salt and does the blurring thing once more, having little time to spare. He would attempt to slam a hyperspace hand forward for Berk's back.
[22:34] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk is knocked out the hole in the wall, flying out. He twists, then blurs back into the room at Drasek, ramming into him again, sending them flying over the growing hole
[22:35] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Here they come.
[22:35] <13Chad`Winters> DRASEK GET AWAY FROM HIM!
15[22:36] * 13@Drasek is sent flying out with them and glances slightly towards Chad. He attempts to literally shove a hand of hyperspace into Berk, dropping off a little present before kicking off and trying to make his escape.
[22:37] <13@DeathStar> 6* Berk is knocked by the hyperspace shove, flying over the hole a moment, going back to normal form as he does.
[22:37] <13Chad`Winters> ZEPHYR NOW!
15[22:38] * 13@Drasek twists his body in the air, reaching out for the egde of the hole, he's probably cutting it close.
[22:38] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr fires at the explosive, causing it to explode. The explosion sends the room shaking, and then it begins to break off the cliffside and fall, pieces of it crashing all around. Zephyr leaps back into the doorway that leads to a staircase
15[22:38] * 13Chad`Winters quickly slides his hand along his belt and swings out a rope towards Drasek
[22:38] <13@DeathStar> 6* Since the doorway seems stable.
[22:38] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eyes the entire room falling. In 5 seconds, they'll be unable to reach the doorway
15[22:38] * 13@Drasek reaches out to catch the rope, now that the explosion would probably make everythign around him start to fall.
15[22:39] * 13Chad`Winters wraps the rope around his arm and he turns, trying to move towards the doorway while there's still slack
15[22:40] * 13@Drasek sticks his legs out and tries to catch a piece of falling debris, to give him enough leverage to press off and mvoes forward, towards Dariena nd Chad.
[22:40] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien rushes and leaps into the doorway. As Chad makes it, the ceiling and room falls, jerking the roof, since Drasek would be in it. A moment later though he'd pop up through a hole in the ceiling, swaying over the ocean abyss
15[22:40] * 13Chad`Winters jerks violently as the rope goes taut, grabbing onto the doorway to keep himself from falling
[22:41] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien and Zephyr grab onto Chad as well
15[22:41] * 13@Drasek coughs awkardly, swaying there, he glances upward and goes to start climbing, to quicken the process.
[22:41] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> I hate Progenitors. NO offense.
[22:42] <13Chad`Winters> Try holding an overweight one from falling to his doom. 6He winces.
[22:42] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> He'd probably live, knowing him. Drop him if it's too much
[22:42] <13@Drasek> Hmph. See if I show up to save the day ever again. 6He pulls himself up.
[22:43] <13Chad`Winters> Such gratitude for saving his life. 6He undoes the rope from around his arm
[22:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr sees Chad will make it okay, then hurries up the stairs to the higher places of the palace.
[22:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* One can see an energy barrier around it if they look up from the stairway, since there's nothing to block their view if they lean out and look up. Probably why they needed Erevis to open the door
[22:43] <13@Drasek> Yeah yeah, thanks mate. Saved me some energy. 6He stands up and adjusts his suit, it's dirty and has a few cuts in it. He sighs sadly.
15[22:44] * 13Chad`Winters starts moving up after Zephyr, his right arm hanging to his side
[22:44] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien shrugs and moves after them.
15[22:44] * 13@Drasek walks forward after Darien, glancing over his shoulder, thinking back on something breifly.
[22:45] <13@DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
[22:45] <13@DeathStar> Focused Location: Upper Palace. Megumi
[22:45] <13@DeathStar> 6* Megumi would find the stairway going on and on, curving along the side of the mountain
[22:46] <13Kit> <Megumi> Damn. Stupid. Staircases." 6She huffs and wheezes, but keeps running up
[22:47] <13@DeathStar> 6* After a bit, she would arrive at the top. This room appears to be a tower like building, with a large machine that's activated in the room. Energy currents flow around it, and pieces of it spin around the room rapidly, with it's core glowing. Erevis is sitting in a chair in front of it, head tilted a bit, as if she's still drugged, and Ao is watching, hand to her mouth. "Fufufu."
[22:47] <13Kit> <Megumi> Classic.." 6She puts a hand to her head, then twitches. 1"AO!"
[22:48] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao turns to face Megumi now, crossing her arms.
[22:48] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> So you got pass Ra. 6* She notes annoyedly.
[22:49] <13Kit> <Megumi> Yes. I am sure the others will be here soon, as well. You still have time to give up on this futility.
[22:49] <13@DeathStar> 6* Below them, shaking can be heard, as if the palace is breaking apart below them.
[22:49] <13Kit> 6Megumi gestures with a hand. 1"What do you think will happen if you go through with this?"
[22:49] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> The Progenitors will take their place in the multiverse again, with Erevis as our leader.
[22:50] <13Kit> <Megumi> Do you not have any thoughts or dreams for yourself? Or is that protocol twisting your desires so much you are too blind to realize.
[22:50] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao just stares at her. "Got the speech out of your system?"
[22:50] <13Kit> 6Megumi squints. 1"Cannot blame me for wanting more friends."
[22:51] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Allow me to correct your misguided assumptions. I am no protocol. 6* She lifts her hand up, palm faced upward, and forms a ball of hyperspace. "I am royality like Erevis. And we will bring our people back as Erevis planned out."
[22:52] <13Kit> 6Megumi tilts her head a bit. 1"Excuse me..?" 6She tenses.
[22:52] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Need I repeat myself? I suppose being a lesser being that would be necessary.
[22:53] <13Kit> 6Megumi shrugs a bit, closing her eyes. 1"Forgive me for being born on a dark moon."
[22:53] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> We are following Erevis' wishes. She made herself forget, so she could be near Wind, and be near him as he made the new universe. Things were sidetracked when the Dark Ones interferred, but with them gone, we can continue - activating hidden protocols to aid us. We will bring our people back, and Erevis will be the one to lead us. As soon as we remove the false personality in her.
[22:55] <13Kit> <Megumi> False personality, huh?
[22:55] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> That's what I said.
[22:55] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao sighs dramatically, as if talking to Megumi was taking all her patience.
[22:55] <13Kit> <Megumi> I do not believe there is anything 'false' about it.
[22:56] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> The real Erevis would never be with you.
[22:56] <13Kit> 6Megumi eyes the machine, as if looking for a way to sabotage it while talking. 1"She lacks memories, but her feelings are real enough. Perhaps she was taught not to be with lesser beings or whatever. That is none of my concern. What is, is protecting what she desires now."
[22:57] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis shifts behind Ao, standing up slowly. So far Ao seems not to notice. <Ao> That's sweet.
[22:58] <13Kit> <Megumi> Clearly you lack a lover." 6She eyes Ao-- letting pity seep into her expression. Purposely or not. Who knows.
[22:58] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao shifts to throw the ball of hyperspace, when her hand stops moving. She looks at it a moment
[22:59] <13Kit> 6Megumi turns to peer at Ao and Erevis behind here. 1"... Beloved.."
[23:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao glances around, sputtering in disbelief. "Tch. Her mind always was too strong. Even a fake personality." 6* Erevis tilts her head a bit. She looks very angry, a rare expression these days
[23:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao blurs away and appears on the other side of the room, the ball still ready.
[23:00] <13Kit> <Megumi> I would prefer you gave up this nonsense. I would like very much if we had more family to hold on to. I am tired of fighting.
[23:01] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> ... Family, hm? 6* She slowly begins to smile, and not pleasantly.
[23:02] <13Kit> <Megumi> Yes. Family. The only thing worth fighting for, and waking up before noon when cuddling is involved." 6She nods, sighing.
[23:02] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Family is important. Important enough to cripple a person.
[23:03] <13Kit> 6Megumi tilts her head slightly.
[23:03] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> If you don't surrender, and if Erevis keeps resisting, then I'll cripple you both. My pawn is already in position.
[23:03] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis glares now, her eyes flashing angerily. "You will cease immediately."
[23:03] <13Kit> <Megumi> What do you mean..?
[23:03] <13@DeathStar> <Erevis> She is speaking...
[23:03] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> ... of your baby.
[23:04] <13Kit> 6Megumi scowls slightly. 1"Wh-what..!?"
[23:04] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Let me show you.
[23:04] <13@DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
[23:04] <13@DeathStar> Location: HQ
[23:04] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya sits with Isis in the courtyard area, getting fresh air.
15[23:05] * 13@Sammael sits nearby, watching over Isis as she promised, though currently more or less watching her datapad.
[23:06] <13@DeathStar> 6* Suddenly, there's a blinding pain in Sam's head, and all rational thought vanishes. Her orders are simple: pick up the child and get ready
15[23:07] * 13@Sammael rubs her head a little as she stands and walks over to Aya and Isis, gently moving to take Isis from Aya's arms. "Get some rest..."
[23:07] <13@DeathStar> <Aya> Huh? I'm fine.
[23:07] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya shifts to hold onto Isis, peering at Sam oddly.
15[23:07] * 13@Sammael frowns, "Just a little while? You can get her something."
[23:08] <13@DeathStar> <Aya> She seems fine to me.
[23:08] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya looks at Isis now
09[23:08] <13@Sammael> "Come now Aya, just let me hold her for a bit, what harm will it do?"
[23:09] <13@DeathStar> <Aya> ... 6* She looks at Sam now. "Why do you want to hold her?"
09[23:09] <13@Sammael> "Because I like her, I haven't really gotten a chance since I helped deliver her."
[23:09] <13@DeathStar> 6* Another pounding. Remove the obstacle to get Isis is inputed.
15[23:10] * 13@Sammael frowns and swiftly pulls out her gun, knowing the bases detections, she pistolwhips Aya instead of firing a stun shot.
[23:11] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya is hit in the head, and lets go of Isis, grabbing her head. She rolls with the blow as trained, but still seems to be hurting
15[23:11] * 13@Sammael grabs Isis and moves behind Aya, quickly covering her mouth and putting her in a sleeper hold.
[23:11] <13@DeathStar> <Voice> The baby is mine.
[23:11] <13@DeathStar> 6* A crystal spear stabs SAm's shoulder, missing Isis and Aya
15[23:12] * 13@Sammael cries out and clutches onto Isis as she falls back, stumbling, she looks up at her attacker.
[23:12] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit stands there. Aya scrambles to the side, trying to get herself ready
15[23:12] * 13@Sammael fires a blast at the new obstacle without hesitation.
[23:12] <13@DeathStar> 6* He forms a crystal shield to take the blast.
09[23:13] <13@Sammael> "You will not have the child." *she blasts again, putting pressure on Noname and his shield*
[23:13] <13@DeathStar> <Famfrit> Nor will a doll like you.
[23:14] <13@DeathStar> 6* The shield holds for now, and the Famfrit prepares himself.
15[23:14] * 13@Sammael falters, holding the child, she backs away slowly.
[23:15] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit throws the shield for her head.
15[23:15] * 13@Sammael ducks low and fires another blast at the Famfrit.
[23:15] <13@DeathStar> 6 *The Famfrit springs up like Megumi would, twisting and landing on his feet.
[23:15] <13@DeathStar> <Aya> ... 6* She taps her comm, getting the HQ's attention
15[23:16] * 13@Sammael backs towards the door to the courtyard, as her face scrunches, internally she tries to get control over herself.
[23:16] <13@DeathStar> 6* A portal opens up in the courtyard, an actual tear in the fabric of space - an escape route.
04[23:16] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit charges at Sammael.
15[23:16] * 13@Sammael blasts at the Famfrit and makes a break for the portal.
04[23:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit twists, snarling a bit like a cat. As SAmmael enters the portal, he dives in after her.
[23:17] <13Kit> 6The base's defense should be turning on..? The intercom. 1"What's going on!?"
[23:17] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya tenses and leaps in after them. The tear vanishes a moment later as Cheryl and others get there.
[23:17] <13@Drasek> <Marcus> ...so...what's going on again?
[23:18] <13@DeathStar> 6* Wind stands on the roof, holding his stomach, taking labored breaths. "Lets see how this plays out." 6* He steps away and teleports.
[23:18] <13Chad`Winters> 6Dias scratches his head. 1"...Woh, looks like someone got nasty.
[23:18] <13@DeathStar> 6* Cheryl picks up the remains of a crystal spear that dissolves.
[23:18] <13@Drasek> <Theron> Hmm. It appears to be like Megumi's weapons.
[23:19] <13@DeathStar> <Cheryl> Odd.
[23:19] <13@DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
[23:19] <13@DeathStar> Location: Upper Palace
04[23:19] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> The one called Sammael has your child. Surrender or she will die.
04[23:20] <13Kit> 6Megumi tenses. One way or another she can never handle Sammael's situation with tact. 1"D-Damn it..."
[23:20] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis clenches her fists. "I will remove your head so you will control no one anymore."
[23:21] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao puts a hand to her mouth. "Fufufu. Now that's more like the old you."
[23:21] <13Kit> <Megumi> Beloved... I.. I cannot garauntee Isis is safe.
04[23:21] <13@DeathStar> 6* As Erevis moves forward, a portal opens up and Sammael, Aya, and the Famfrit all arrive. She stops at this.
15[23:22] * 13@Sammael keeps running, moving for Ao, trying to make distance from her Famfrit attacker.
[23:22] <13@DeathStar> 6 *Ao blinks in surprise, not expecting this.
04[23:23] <13Kit> <Megumi> Sammael!
15[23:23] * 13@Sammael stops between them all, holding Isis very carefully.
04[23:23] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao looks at Sammael, then at the others, smiling. The Famfrit stops, twitching.
[23:23] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya gets up. ”s-Sorry.”
[23:23] <13Kit> 6Megumi throatily replies. 1"Not... your fault..."
04[23:23] <13@DeathStar> <Erevis> ... Sammael Hendricks. Remove my child from harm's way this instant.
15[23:24] * 13@Sammael blinks, beginning to follow the command of the most important one in the room. She moves off to the side, away from everyone.
[23:24] <13Kit> 6Megumi slowly begins to eye noname, not any happier.
[23:24] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Erevis. You cannot win in your current condition. Give up now
[23:25] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit peers at Megumi, then at Ao.
[23:25] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis ignores her, and just gets her emerald sphere she had hidden on her body, forming her scythe.
15[23:25] * 13@Sammael keeps her eyes downcast, holding Aya and rocking her gently.
04[23:25] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> ... Sammael. Put the baby down and kill the called Megumi
[23:26] <13Kit> <Megumi> Ao, I pray you see the light I cannot." 6She holds out her hands, beginning to concentrate on something that's enough to clearly create attention from anyone sensitive to energy, atmosphere or extrasensory changes.
[23:26] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao pauses, glancing at Megumi now. The Famfrit pauses, then gets far, far away.
15[23:26] * 13@Sammael looks conflicted, orders contradicting each other, as leaving teh baby alone would place it in harms away.
[23:26] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> What...are you doing?
09[23:27] <13@Sammael> "If I leave the child... the Nonname will attempt something..."
[23:27] <13Kit> <Megumi> What I do best.
[23:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya blinks, then slides back, knowing something is up.
[23:27] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Stop her now.
[23:27] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao throws a hyperspace ball at Megumi's chest.
[23:28] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis gets her scythe ready, eyes focused. She seems to be focused on killing Ao.
[23:28] <13Kit> 6Megumi brings both hands together, forming a ball of utter black. The emptiness of space without the light of stars. She seemingly believes it can stop what's thrown at her.
[23:28] <13@DeathStar> 6* The ball of darkness beats the hyperspace ball. Ao reels.
[23:29] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> Are you part of that infernal Dark One people?
[23:29] <13Kit> <Megumi> No.
15[23:29] * 13@Sammael holds up her hands, readying to fire a beam. "She is... something else..."
[23:29] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> ... I will crash you like the bug you are...!
[23:29] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao seems to throw a tantrum.
[23:30] <13@DeathStar> <Erevis> She is my wife. 6* She begins to psionically grab Ao, pinning her in place.
[23:30] <13Kit> 6Megumi slowly compresses the orb smaller and give it shape, reaching to grab the 'hilt.' She forms it into a rather unremarkably-sized sword that lacks definition or feature. Light won't reflect, nor will it pass through.
09[23:31] <13@Sammael> "She is in love..."
15[23:31] * 13@Sammael closes her eyes, curling her hand slowly into a fist.
[23:31] <13Kit> <Megumi> I cannot claim all the credit. The earthlings you underestimate helped me considerable in unveiling this.
[23:31] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao strains, then moves forward, breaking Erevis' grip on her.
[23:31] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao blurs behind Megumi, then slams her hyperspace hand for her back, aiming to gut her
[23:32] <13Kit> 6Megumi shifts and attempts to parry the hand with the sword before she can even make her body turn around also.
[23:33] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao blurs again, appearing on Megumi's other side. She does her attack again. Erevis shifts to psionically knock her aim off.
[23:33] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit watches Megumi for now, remaining out fo the fight.
[23:33] <13Kit> <Megumi> ...I would not recommend touching this." 6She mumbles, bringing the sword back around and gripping it with both hands thanks to Erevis' help, she leans to thrust the blade for her. 1"It is dark matter."
15[23:34] * 13@Sammael watches, her eyes blinking a little as she holds the baby closer.
[23:34] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao reaches out her hand and grabs it as it comes from her, her hyperspace hand glowing. She grins coldly. "Or what?"
[23:35] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> We made something from nothing. Do you think something as pathetic as this can stop a Progenitor?
[23:35] <13Kit> 6Megumi shoves it forward anyway. 1"The lowly being that is me would not feign to know."
[23:35] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao holds it in place for now, though it seems she's using alot of energy.
[23:36] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis gets her scythe ready, swinging it at Ao, who holds out her second hand to snag that, holding it, too
15[23:36] * 13@Sammael slowly shifts her position, as she shakes her head a little, she looks down at Isis, then Ao.
[23:37] <13Kit> 6Megumi takes one hand off the blade and holds out her other hand, quickly repeating the process in much less preparation to form a second. 1"All I know is that you will not harm what I love."
[23:37] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> .......
[23:37] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao goes complete energy, and unleashes a pulsewave of burning energy at both
[23:38] <13@DeathStar> 6 *Erevis is knocked back, sliding along the floor, the scythe leaving her hand and going back to sphere form.
15[23:38] * 13@Sammael looks over at Aya, tilting her head.
[23:38] <13Kit> 6Megumi twists the hilt of the first, actually attempting to cut the pulse as she's knocked back, swiping at it with the second blade as it finishes forming.
[23:38] <13@DeathStar> 6* A voice speaks in Sam's ear. "Now is your moment. Shoot Ao in the back. Defeat her."
15[23:39] * 13@Sammael blinks and narrows her eyes, she lets out a blast for all she's worth at Ao, blasting at her exposed back.
[23:39] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao is hit, and an explosive result occurs since she's in energy form. She goes flying into the core machine, and it begins to spark wildly.
[23:40] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr and the others reach the top floor finally, just in time to see the core machine beginning to shake and seemingly overload. The Famfrit narrows his eyes at it.
09[23:40] <13@Sammael> "Puppet... no more..."
15[23:40] * 13Chad`Winters eyes go wide, not from the overloading core, but at his daughter being there. 1"AYA?!"
[23:40] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya looks sheepishly at Chad, then at the core. "I think we should go."
09[23:40] <13@Sammael> "...We need to go."
15[23:40] * 13@Drasek glances around oddly, then eyes the overloading core. 1Bright kid, mate.
15[23:41] * 13@Sammael holds Isis close to protect her and moves over to the others. "Erevis... Megumi... we need to go now."
[23:41] <13Chad`Winters> Big problem with that. We've got nowhere to go.
[23:41] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr moves to check on Megumi. Erevis is still laying there, not moving
[23:41] <13Kit> <Megumi> Sorry if it makes me hypocritical, but it is the kindness that beloved said she saw in me. Ao, my hand is still offered, but this is the last time it will be.
09[23:42] <13@Sammael> "Meg... let her die."
15[23:42] * 13@Drasek moves over to Erevis' side, kneeling to check on her. 1Revi, luv you alright?
[23:42] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao emerges from the core, holding something in her hand - a gem like stone that Legion got after the gift of the gods was finished.
15[23:43] * 13Chad`Winters quickly moves over to his daughter as he eyes the core, he grabs his datapad, seeing if their shuttle has a remote control.
04[23:43] <13Kit> 6Megumi just glares at Sammael. 1"You have been given more chances." 6Then looks to Ao, her head tilting.
[23:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien frowns a bit, balancing himself. "Sam...are oyu okay?"
[23:43] <13@DeathStar> 6* He moves to check on her. Erevis seems to be awake, and forces herself to sit up.
15[23:43] * 13@Sammael opens her eyes wide. "Yes... for now. This is bad..."
15[23:44] * 13@Drasek glances up to Ao, he narrows his eyes. 1Bloody hell did she get that from?
[23:44] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien studies her, then clenches his teeth, eyeing Ao's emergence. Ao focuses, and the gem flies up through the ceiling into the sky.
[23:44] <13Kit> 6Megumi tenses and jerks slightly. 1"What are you doing..!?"
[23:44] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> This is a weapon of our people, Erevis. It was going to be yours when you brought our people back, but I will use it to crush everyone who is holding you back.
[23:45] <13@DeathStar> 6* The sky goes blood red, and Ao's power seems to expand, higher than even Legion's.
09[23:45] <13@Sammael> "Progenitor weapons..."
[23:45] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien eye the sky. "Fuck."
15[23:45] * 13Chad`Winters tisks and hooks his datapad up, and he unholsters both guns, aiming them at Ao. 1"Take her down.
[23:45] <13Kit> 6Megumi clenches her teet, then throws both hands out, hurtling both swords blade-first for Ao.
15[23:45] * 13@Drasek stands up and eyes Ao with a frown. 1...fuck isn't even the word for this, mate.
[23:45] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis gets to her feet. "You are insane, Ao. Stop now."
09[23:45] <13@Sammael> "Before she gets to her full power, she must end."
[23:46] <13@DeathStar> 6* The blades hit a shield around Ao, and vanish completely, as if she sucked the dark energy in
[23:46] <13@DeathStar> <Ao> I am already there, you doll
04[23:46] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao raises her hand up, and Sammael's body begins to shut down for good. Sam can feel her life draining
15[23:46] * 13Chad`Winters glances upto see if he can still see the gem.
15[23:46] * 13@Sammael clenches her teeth, holding Isis tight, she tries to fight back, to resist it. "No... I won't... shut down!"
[23:46] <13@DeathStar> 6* The gem is too high to see.
[23:47] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> Sam?! .... 6* He grabs his rapier and rushes at Ao. "Let her go!"
[23:47] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya moves behind Chad, looking freaked out.
15[23:47] * 13@Drasek clenches his fists slowly and then makes a tisking sound when Darien rushes in.
09[23:47] <13@Sammael> "Darien... no!"
[23:48] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao watches Darien come in, and he stabs with the emerald rapier into her shield, pressing forward. For a moment, it would appear he might pierce it, when Ao holds up a hand and fires a blast through Darien's stomach, sending him flying backwards.
[23:48] <13Chad`Winters> Shit. 6He holsters Ebony and pulls out the Rune Blade.
15[23:48] * 13@Sammael fires a hyperspace beam at Ao in retaliation. "I SAID NO!"
[23:49] <13Kit> 6Megumi eyes the effect her swords went through and reaches out, seeing if she can manipulate the forces around Ao like she did the dark energy.
[23:49] <13@DeathStar> 6* The moment Megumi tries, she would just get overloaded with energy and her body would give out.
15[23:49] * 13@Drasek makes a face now at that sight and tigthens his fist, closing his eyes briefly to take a breath and calm himself. Losing himself during this fight would be bad.
[23:49] <13@DeathStar> 6* Sam's blast hits the shield, doing nothing. Ao sneers.
[23:49] <13Chad`Winters> Aya tend to Darien. 6He twirls the Rune Blade and starts moving in.
[23:50] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya moves to check on Darien, who's twitching on the ground and bleeding out.
09[23:50] <13@Sammael> "Save him Aya... please..."
[23:50] <13Kit> 6Megumi jerks back as if touching something electrified, then drops, eventually apparently bleeding but not from any immediately evident wound
[23:50] <13@DeathStar> <Erevis> Kitten... 6* She eyes Megumi, moving to her, her face panicked.
15[23:50] * 13@Drasek shakes his head and glances at himself and Chad, then looks to Ao. 1Wittlin us down, she is. We need a plan, mate.
[23:50] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr holds her hand over left eye. "God...dammit..."
[23:51] <13Chad`Winters> The Emerald Blade almost made it through. We attack it at the same time and we might get through.
[23:51] <13Kit> 6Megumi's skin seems to be slowly deteriorating.
[23:51] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis kneels there, tears running down her face. She closes her eyes, trembling in rage.
[23:51] <13@Drasek> I'll take one of those then. 6He glances around for one, moving over to pick up Darien's.
[23:52] <13@DeathStar> 6 *Erevis rises and thrusts her hands out, psionically smashing against the shield, actually crushing it inward with an invisible hand. Her hair losing color slowly.
[23:52] <13@DeathStar> <Erevis> You. Will. Die.
15[23:52] * 13@Sammael drops to one knee, careful of Isis as she looks at Darien worriedly, only wanting to be with him, wanting to live, she moves over to Aya and Darien.
[23:52] <13Chad`Winters> Drasek. MOVE NOW. 6He tenses and makes a dash in at Ao
[23:53] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao jerks a bit, as if shock. Erevis keeps walking forward, her hair white, and hyperspace like wings emerging from her back, burning ehr flash. She keeps her crushing attack going
15[23:53] * 13@Drasek pulls the orb up and then dashes in towards Ao, the orb shifting and forming a green speer.
[23:53] <13@Drasek> NRP: spear*
15[23:53] * 13Chad`Winters pulls the Rune Blade back, activating all the runes as he draws in close
[23:53] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit kneels by Megumi, touching her. He begins to reconstruct her damaged cells, healing her methodically.
[23:53] <13@DeathStar> 6* Aya touches Darien, but her hands get soaked in blood. It seems she's having trouble keeping the wound from bleeding
15[23:54] * 13@Sammael pulls out nanite injectors with her free hand, doing what she can to help Aya.
[23:54] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis keeps crushing at the shield, clearly enraged and perhaps even a bit insane.
15[23:54] * 13@Drasek twirls the spear as he comes in and thrusts the spear forward for Ao and her shield, from another point of attack than where Erevis is.
09[23:54] <13@Sammael> "We'll work together...."
15[23:54] * 13Chad`Winters leaps forward at the Ao, thrusting the Rune Blade in at the shield.
09[23:54] <13@Sammael> "H-How many times do I have to patch you up love..."
[23:55] <13@DeathStar> 6* The spear slams into the shield, and begins to pierce it. The Rune Blade begins to do the same. Ao's eyes widen, and she looks frightened.
[23:55] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit finishes putting Megumi together piece by piece, then slaps at her to wake her up.
15[23:55] * 13Chad`Winters growls as he pushes against the blade, his entire body tensing up as he fights
15[23:55] * 13@Drasek doesn't say any catchy one liners, or any of that and just continues to push, his face tense, his eyes determined.
[23:55] <13@DeathStar> 6 *Darien strains to speak, blood pouring up his mouth. "So..Sorry..."
09[23:55] <13@Sammael> "Don't speak... y-you have to live Darien... you have to..."
[23:56] <13Kit> 6Megumi hisses angrily and painfully as she rouses, perhaps reluctant. 1"...D-damn ..it.."
15[23:56] * 13Chad`Winters growls and unleashes the power of the ruins inside the shield and aimed directly at Ao
[23:56] <13@DeathStar> 6* The Famfrit runs his hand along her cheek, then sits back, head slumping
[23:57] <13@DeathStar> 6* The shield shatters and the spear stabs, the rune blade connects, and Erevis' crushing psionic abilities all come down at her. Ao screams a blood curdling scream
15[23:57] * 13@Sammael continues her emergency treatment, helping Aya.
[23:57] <13Kit> 6Megumi looks confused, then puts her hands up to her ears, cringing from the noise that she turns to. 1"...NO...!"
04[23:57] <13@DeathStar> 6* As Ao screams, Sammael's body begins to fail, as if as Ao is dying, so is Sam.
[23:57] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis continues to crush Ao in her psionic grip. Ao's body contorts.
15[23:58] * 13@Drasek pulls the spear back and peers at Erevis, then shifts to slide in front of her. 1Revi. It's done. Stop.
[23:58] <13Kit> <Megumi> Erevis stop it!
15[23:58] * 13@Sammael gasps and holds onto Darien's shoulder, closing her eyes, shaking. She cries out a little, "K-KILLING ME!"
15[23:58] * 13Chad`Winters pulls the Rune blade back.
[23:58] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis psionically knocks Drasek aside.
[23:58] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien weakly reaches up toward Sam.
15[23:58] * 13@Drasek skids to the side and tumbles a bit, sliding back up to his feet, he tenses and dashes forward for her again. 1Revi. STOP.
15[23:59] * 13@Sammael whimpers, she takes his hand, holding on tight, shaking. "Darien... l-live for me... please..."
[23:59] <13Kit> 6Megumi hits the ground and pushes herself up, wailing. 1"Erevis...! Quit it!! Are you not sisters..?!"
[23:59] <13@DeathStar> <Darien> L-Live...yourself..
15[23:59] * 13Chad`Winters eyes Ao than turns moving quickly to Darien and Aya
13[00:00] * Day changed to Wednesday, September 17th 2008.
Session Time: Wed Sep 17 00:00:01 2008
[00:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis jerks, her red hair color returning, with some extra white, and her wings vanishing, leaving burnt marks that bleed on her back. Ao stops contorting
[00:00] <13@DeathStar> 6* Erevis falls to her knees.
15[00:01] * 13@Sammael cries, holding Darien's hand. "I-I will... I want you to live life with me..."
[00:01] <13Kit> 6Megumi strains to limp her way over there, eyes wide to both her and Ao
15[00:01] * 13@Drasek slides up to Erevis' side, then peers at Ao, he glances over towards Sam before looking to Revi. He tisks, since he didn't expect this to happen this way.
[00:01] <13@DeathStar> 6* At that moment, Sam would fall, perhaps dead, over Darien's lap.
[00:01] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao opens her eyes again and her body shifts back to normal in a flash, no damage apparant. She looks at them all, eyes flaring with energy. It seems she's completely healed.
[00:02] <13@DeathStar> 6* Zephyr bites her lip, still by Megumi, holding her pounding left eye.
15[00:02] * 13@Drasek pauses and looks at Ao. 1Oh you've got to be fucking kidding me.
[00:02] <13Kit> 6Megumi puts a hand against Erevis, glancing up at Ao painfully. 1"You are, are you not?"
15[00:02] * 13Chad`Winters slides upto the three, his hands quickly resting on Aya's shoulder. 1"Darien?"
[00:03] <13@DeathStar> 6* Darien's eyes are closed now. Aya shakes her head, putting a bloody hand to her face, perhaps to hide her tears.
15[00:03] * 13Chad`Winters puts an arm around Aya, hugging her tightly as his eyes narrow at Ao still alive. 1"You tried, Aya."
[00:03] <13@DeathStar> 6* Ao lifts her hand up. "You made her hate me. You all made her into this." 6* A hyperspace point appears. Zephyr drops her hand now, apparnatly back under her own control. <Ao> I'll kill you all.
[00:03] <13@DeathStar> -TO BE CONCLUDED-
