* DeathStar sets a giant monkey down
<ChadWinters`> I am not a monkey!
* Xan has joined #TAW-Session94
* Seraphna pokes Chad the Giant Monkey
<Jackieness> Tis true. He is a macaque.
<Jackieness> ...which is really justa type of monkey c.c
<Jackieness> Anyway... my internet has been acting up.
<ChadWinters`> More like the giant skunk ape
<DeathStar> 3
<DeathStar> So far
<Jackieness> I'm not touching Chad's dirty monkey c.c
<ChadWinters`> DO IT!
<Jackieness> NUUUUUUUU
<DeathStar> No fourth?
* Jackieness finally taps Chad Monkey with a stick
<DeathStar> Sigh
<Jackieness> ...that stick happens to be a baseball bat c.c
<ChadWinters`> YAY!

<DeathStar> *1 day after last*
<DeathStar> Location: Underground Base
<DeathStar> 6* Cheryl has various people from the 4 teams gathered in her command center on the top floor to go over the Venerator problem one more time
<DeathStar> 6* Cheryl has also gathered Hope and Zephyr, since Venerator might target them, into the command center
* ChadWinters` leans back in his chair as he looks over at Cheryl.
<DeathStar> 6* Zephyr paces, eyeing data sheets, with Cran sitting in the office. Cheryl eyes Cran now and again.
<Xan> * Marcus rubs the side of his face, looking a little tired.
<ChadWinters`> 6Dias looms over Marcus.
<Seraphna> * Tabetha, Angelos, Angela, and Si'Chii sit looking over tyhings.
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "Soooo... Cran... any hidey holes down here that we havne't found yet?"
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC stands quietly in the back, while Cel sits in a chair
<DeathStar> *Vesta sits by Darien's side in medical*
<Xan> * Kane and Kellin are also present, though Kane is eyeing his datapad quietly while Kellin seems to keep glancing towards Zephyr, frowning.
<ChadWinters`> You're going to wear a hole in the floor if you keep pacing like that, Zeph.
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> It's just hard to imagine that this computer of "dad" had me and Hope's DNA
<Seraphna> * Michelle sits with Kellin.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Just a giant mech of death hidden somewhere
<DeathStar> *He notes idlely*
<ChadWinters`> Is it though?
<DeathStar> *Cran sets his datapad down*
<Sara> * Kaori sits quietly
<Seraphna> * Tabetha frowns. "Well... AI capable of sentient thought and intellect has existed for some time."
<DeathStar> <Cran> I think I found a few things
<Xan> <Kellin> Look at the reploids like Ash and Cole.
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *walks in with coffee and start pouring for all those who wish to partake*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Then there were biomechanoid solutions like Lemon. Perfect really."
<Seraphna> Lisa> "Not to mention Airym."
<Xan> * Marcus eagerly takes some of the coffee.
<ChadWinters`> What did you find? 6He looks over at Cran
<Xan> <Marcus> Thanks Josephine.
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> Coffee will stunt your growth.
<Seraphna> Angela> "Yeah, what did you find Alexander?"
<DeathStar> *Cheryl peers at Cran as he moves over to plug the terminal into the system*
<DeathStar> <Cran> I been going over the clone virus that this Venerator Intelligence released, seeing if I could understand why - other than to remove some clones
<DeathStar> <Cran> When we stopped the virus, we mostly put it into a dormant state
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "General Cran, if I pour you this coffeee, will you refrain from having your needlemen abduct me as happened the last time i went to fetch you coffee?"
<Xan> <Marcus> I'm already grown. * He says to Dias *
<DeathStar> *Cran glances at Josephine, an unreadable look flashing on his face briefly* I'm fine
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Mmmm-hmmm..." *moves on*
<DeathStar> *Cran turns back to the screen and brings up complicated formulas*
<Sara> * Kaori's eyes go crossed
<Seraphna> * Angelos sighs, but doesn't comment.
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> That you have. 6He laughs as he slaps Marcus' back
<DeathStar> <Cran> I believe that Sun VI released the clone virus a few months ago for the Intelligence in the air. Probably when they relesed the nanomachines to help the planet's reality quakes. Meaning the entire planet is filled with the clone virus. The people have breathed it in and even now you all are still passing it on
<DeathStar> <Cran> And then at some point it triggered the clone detoration program
<Xan> * Kane glances up at the formula and studies it carefully.
<ChadWinters`> Effective way to spread a virus.
<Seraphna> Angela> "Hard to remove something that heavily infecting things."
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> Hm, I vaguely recall those nanomachines
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "Was Sun VI aware of the clone virus mixed in with their reality quake cure?"
<Seraphna> Luci> They temporarily stopped the quakes by attempting to bottle up an explosion instead of evening them out.
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> It messed with the Dragoons and Wepaons, too, didn't it?
<Seraphna> Luci> "Made weapons go bannanas and made us Dragoons bent of stopping them."
<ChadWinters`> I believe so.
<Xan> <Marcus> Yeah, good fight in the desert for us
<Seraphna> Luci> "Which of course, was also bannanas."
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> Hey, we did not go banana's.
<Seraphna> Luci> "You went fruitloops. I went bananas."
<DeathStar> <Cran> You can put a lot into a program if you want, especially for something on the level of the Venerator Intelligence program I am sure
<Xan> <Kane> All things that would distract us while it worked in the background.
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> I was perfectly sane. 6He crosses his arms in defiance
<DeathStar> *Cran nods to Kane*
<DeathStar> *Ren sits by Kaori, all cleane up as she listens in*
<Seraphna> Luci> "Truth won't attend the meeting because she's still phobic of you."
<Sara> * Kaori glances over at Ren, acknowledging her presence
<ChadWinters`> It worked. 6He crosses his arms
<DeathStar> <Cran> But the second thing I learned about the clone virus. *Megumi would get a baking ding as as her progrma is done*
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> Not my fault she can't handle losing. Hmpf
<DeathStar> <Cran> There was a second part to the program from what I can tell
<ChadWinters`> Which is?
<Seraphna> Luci> "You... really ought to do something there." *She shrugs and peers at the rest of the meeting*
<DeathStar> *Cran points at the second part of the formula* It's dormant now, but if the V.I program is good, it can reactivate it any time. The first part is to kill the clones - I imagine it was designed to kill me and maybe a few other heavy hitters
<DeathStar> <Cran> The second is to take over the remaining clones
<DeathStar> <Cran> A network of clones the program can use as bodies
<Sara> <Kaori> "Other heavy hitters"?
<DeathStar> <Cran> Even newly born clones because they'll be infected sooner or later
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "What an odd pattern. What if the first part killed all the clones before the second part kicked in?"
* ChadWinters` clicks his tongue. 1"Isn't Megumi working on one?"
<DeathStar> <Cran> The death rate varied it seemed
<DeathStar> <Cran> *to Kaori* Clones like me, Angelos, and so on
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "What variable?"
<Seraphna> Angelos> "Not a fan of this program so far."
<DeathStar> <Cran> That I haven't figured out. But so far me and Angelos were near death. This Tora girl did die. Yet I know a few other clones or clone parts were fine
<DeathStar> <Cran> Or at least not on death's bed
<Xan> <Kellin> So, can we cure it?
<DeathStar> *Cheryl peers at at the logs* It seems so, Chad
<Seraphna> Angela> "Still okay with cutting off my arm and going robot arm."
<DeathStar> <Cran> From what I can tell, the only way to cure it is to destroy the Venerator program
<Sathen> *Damian walks in going over info on a datapad* And that's just the intended portion of the clone-virus...that doesn't even touch on the problem with the actual viral factors that were used as a basis for this thing.
<Jackieness> <Myria> *pops up and measures Angela*
<DeathStar> *Cran sits down*
<Xan> <Kane> Could we...trick the virus. So that if it was activated it would slow it down until we could deal with V.I.? In programming we would get the code caught in a repeating loop.
<ChadWinters`> So anyone that's a clone is a potential threat for the VI Program to take over?
<DeathStar> <Cran> Yes.
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "That isn't related to Cran, it seems."
<DeathStar> <Cran> *to Kane* I imagine when it is activated
<DeathStar> <Cran> It will be mass activated
<ChadWinters`> Including you?
<DeathStar> <Cran> You will be dealing with hundreds of Veneraors
<DeathStar> <Cran> *pause* Yes.
<Seraphna> Angelos> "So, I'm in favor of smashing it first, worrying later."
<Xan> <Marcus> How many clones do we have on staff? We may need to quarantine them until we get this fixed.
<DeathStar> *Cheryl turns to Kane* I hope your anti-Venerator program is fine. I think we narrowed down where this program ran to. But it's had 12 hours to be getting ab ody
<Seraphna> Luci> Depends on how you define clone.
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> Quaranting them won't do much
<Seraphna> Luci> "Angela for instance has a clone arm, but since Cheryl reincarnated her, she's not actually a clone by nature."
<Xan> <Kane> I'm currently running it through tests to see how it handles. Chad provided an AI of himself to test it on.
<Seraphna> Luci> Meanwhile Angelos is as cloney as a clone gets."
<Sathen> *Damian moves to stand behind Angelos and Cran* I can just load them up on enough drugs to put them into a medical coma for a while.
<ChadWinters`> Best put a kill switch in each clone.
<Seraphna> ANgelos> *huffs*
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> You want to put kill switches in Kane's kids then?
<Xan> * Marcus rolls his eyes at Chad.
<Seraphna> Angela> "That's overkill, maybe some kind of stunner?"
<ChadWinters`> That would more practical.
<Seraphna> Angela> "He's just taking them over, not making them into super monsters."
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> *to Marcus* I imagine even if we seperated them, when they turn into Venerator they could hack their way out, or with their strength, bust out
<DeathStar> *Cran peers up* Actually, you might face that
<Xan> <Marcus> What if we sedated them?
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "What about off-planet?"
<Xan> * Marcus is more asking Cran than Zephyr
<Seraphna> Angela> "Wait... super monsters too?"
<DeathStar> <Cran> The nanomchines would start to do that, yes
<Seraphna> * Angela peers at her arms considering.
<DeathStar> <Cran> We're all flooded with them - you all are fine
<DeathStar> <Cran> But it'll mix with us clones
<Seraphna> Angela> "...Okay, I'm finding out if this is infected or not and possibly cutting it off. Not interested in turning into Angela-Hulk."
<ChadWinters`> So we need a plan for the clones while we deal with the AI. One that doesn't include them joining us.
<Jackieness> <Myria> *pulls out a hacksaw while standing next to Angela*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Alright step 1, I'm heading to the location where Venerator might have went
<Seraphna> Angela> "Surgically, Myria."
<DeathStar> *Cheryl rises* If you want to send the clones into space, you can
<DeathStar> *Cran frowns*
<Seraphna> Luci> WE don't know the range of the control either.
<Sara> * Kaori frowns too
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "Any chance our techies can mke nanomachines to kill the viral nanomachines?"
<DeathStar> *Ren peers at Cran as Cheryl says that*
<Seraphna> Luci> "We can get near real time signals across the galaxy these days."
<Jackieness> <Myria> "I will use this hacksaw surgically."
<DeathStar> <Cran> Probably. But it'll take time
<Xan> <Kane> We could, Casssandra, but we do not have time.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Which I can't do in space
<Xan> <Marcus> Could we induce a coma, would that protect them from the virus taking over?
<DeathStar> *Cheryl and Zephyr move off. Ren glances at Kaori*
<Seraphna> * Jennifer peeks in. "If Cran hulks out we can always make him sleep."
<DeathStar> <Cran> No. The body would just transform in the coma. And wkae
<Seraphna> * Angela pats Myria then follows Cheryl.
<Xan> * Kellin hops up and moves after Cheryl and Zephyr.
* ChadWinters` stands up moving after Cheryl and Zephyr, Cel moving with
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Then just the non-essnetial clones. The smaller number of people to watch, the easier it would be to manage an ensuing crisis."
<Seraphna> Jennifer> *pulls out a giant wrench* I call it Mr. Naptime.
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> I can stay and watch whatever clones are here. 6he cracks his knuckles. 1"That way if they go bad I can punch them in their faces.
<DeathStar> <Cran> You could try freezing though
<DeathStar> *he muses*
<Sathen> Damian> It might wake, but it would be pumped so full of paralytics that it would be impossible to move more than their eyelids.
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "...I'll get the cryo chambers ready."
<Seraphna> * Jennifer slowly puts the wrench away. "Meanwhile let's work on those nanites."
<DeathStar> <Cran> That should make the nanomachines unable to receive the signal, or at the least, unable to transform
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Unles the virus reconfigures thenervous system to be immune to the paralytics."
<Xan> <Marcus> IF you want to remain awake Cran and work on a counter, that's fine but we'll post guards for when you turn.
<DeathStar> <Cran> It is possible
<Jackieness> <Myria> "Alright, real science!" *scurries to the lab*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "I will help Cran. Nanites are just small robots. I'm good at robots."
<Seraphna> * Tabetha waves Cran to follow her and Myria into the den of madness. That's what they named the lab now.
<Seraphna> * Lisa heads after Cheryl and Zephyr.
<Xan> * Kane glances at his datapad and moves off, sending the results of the AI virus tests to Cheryl and then moves to his lab to make a few adjustments.
<DeathStar> *Cran moves into the lab. Cheryl gets into the shuttle
<Seraphna> * Angela and Lisa board. Si bounces aboard.
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> Off to protect the VP! 6He bounces off
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *moves after Cheryl and on to the shuttle*
<Xan> * Marcus sends out the call to any that are clones to warn inform of the upcoming cryo. Also sending the call out to Erevis and Nue households.
<Sathen> *Damian shakes his head and heads back to medical, muttering* just hope the base virus's mutability wasn't included in this AI version.
<DeathStar> *unless Marcus has gotten Angelos, only he has shown up*
<Xan> * Kellin plops down in the shuttle, looking a bit more sullen than normal.
<Seraphna> * Angelos did not join the mission, since he's the most likely to hulk out. So sure!
<DeathStar> *Marcus is the only one to show up to be frozen.*
<DeathStar> *er Angelos*
<Xan> * Marcus glances around with a frown.
<Seraphna> Angelos> "Seems you're gonna have to ask people nicer?"
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *goes into the command center tyo keep watch while the team is in the field*
<Xan> <Marcus> ....
<DeathStar> *meanwhile, Wade and Adeline escape outside, Adeline having spied on the team on the part of bombs inside their heads*
<DeathStar> <Adeline> Come on, Wade. *she drags Wade off, evading the parimeters like a genius, holding her chest dun dun dun*
<Seraphna> Angelos> "Surprised Kane didn't bring his kids at least... isn't Lemon technically part clone too?"
<Xan> <Marcus> Goddamnit. * He calls Lemon to ask why her and the kids aren't coming.
<DeathStar> <Vodka> Lemon is not being clone, do not worry
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Hmmmm... someone accessed one of the surface hatches." *looks at the screen and then calls it down to anyone else remaining in the base*
<Seraphna> Angelos> Oh good. Her food is too good to be corrupted by Vennie."
<DeathStar> <Lemon> Kids? I do not know
<Seraphna> Angelos> "Is Kane anywhere near as paranoid as Chad? If so have him check their tracking devices." *grins*
<Seraphna> Angelos> "For that matter, where's Chadwick? He's like, superclone."
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *runs a check for the locations of all personnel*
<Xan> <Marcus> It's pretty serious Lemon, can you get them here? * He sends Kane a message as well.
<DeathStar> *Lemon sends a message the kids are not in their normal locations*
<Sathen> *Rea is suddenly standing behind Josephine* Something wrong?
<DeathStar> *Cheryl's team flies toward Mega city, oblivious*
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "We had an unauthorized departure during the briefing."
<Seraphna> Lisa> "Well, this should be interesting."
<Xan> * Kane glances up from his terminal to see his datapad notification light flashing and checks, then his jaw clenches and he begins to check camera feeds.
<DeathStar> *Kane would find little signs of the two outside when Adeline grabbed Wade from the play room and dragged him out the front door; from there, nothing*
<DeathStar> *it seems Adeline heard something she did not like*
<Sathen> *Rea nods and reaches to check on his blaster at this side before pulling up a comm headset* Where was the departure from?
<DeathStar> *Ren hangs out with Cran, helping him by grabbing stuff*
<Xan> * Kane rubs the bridge of his nose then jumps up quickly and runs out to pursue. Along the way he lets Marcus and Lemon knows, with Marcus sighing and asking Josephine to coordinate with whoever is left to work with Kane.
<Sara> * Kaori helps out Cran and Ren
<Seraphna> * Tabetha and Jennifer help work on Nanites.
<DeathStar> <Cran> *to Kaori*How are you two holding up?
<DeathStar> <Ren> Fine
<Sara> <Kaori> I am hanging on
<Xan> <Marcus> Alright Angelos, let's put you on ice so I can go chase some kids.
<DeathStar> *she smiles at Cran, who is technically her great-grandfather
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Front door, of all places."
<Sathen> *Rea heads out that way* On channel three, I'll be there shortly.
<Seraphna> Angelos> "I feel like I'm being pranked here."
<DeathStar> *Lemon goes to follow them, putting down her apron and entering serious mom. She tells Jenny to wait*
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "I'll be mission control here."
<DeathStar> -SCNE SHIFT-
<DeathStar> Location: Shuttle, Mega City
<DeathStar> 6* Cheryl flies the shuttle around, scanning and landing near the docks where a large power source was detected 2 hours ago, that drained the power in the area
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> This might be a hit
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "Looks like he needed a recharge."
<DeathStar> *Zephyr steps out, checking her gun*
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> That or needed to make a body
<Xan> * Kellin adjusts his coat, forming two pistols and steps down after Zephyr
<ChadWinters`> Probably the body. 6He taps the back of his neck and a mask forms over his face as he stands up and moves after Kellin
<DeathStar> *Ako adjusts her hair, having it down long instead of punk style. Having jumped on at the last minute to help Kellin*
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel moves down ,peering around the area
<Seraphna> * Luci peers around, hands to her sides. Angela has belted a beam saber to her arsenal but walks out in her Dragoon Armor. Si wears a very form fitting tactical suit, a bit like a speed biker outfit.
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "I'll take the high ground." *moves out and then tries to get to a high vantage point*
<DeathStar> 6* The docks look run down and empty, even in worse shape than the TAW4 days when the docks used to at least have some open warehouses. Now the entire docks are abandoned with no incoming ships and most of the warehouses are rented out to businesses, typically shady*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> .... *she moves and checks the warehouse doors, breaking and peering in, coughing at the dust coming out, then moving on*
<Xan> <Kellin> How far away was the surge?
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Hard to tell. Could be right here, or further along the docks
<Seraphna> * Angela sticks with Cheryl while Luci keeps an eye out for trouble.
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Anyone got a scanner to see if there's trace residues?
* ChadWinters` steps in after Cheryl, peering around as he pulls out his datapad and scans the area
<Seraphna> * Angela pulls hers out and does some scans.
<DeathStar> *she breaks open another warehouse door, peering in*
<DeathStar> *Ako sniffs the air*
<Xan> * Kellin nods, understanding now and moves further away
<DeathStar> *Chad would get a slight power residue near a large warehouse with what looks to be a closed down warehouse for machinarry*
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *pulls out her rail gun, setting up an impromptu sniper nest; she then uses the scope to visually scan the area for oddities*
<ChadWinters`> Cheryl. 6He nods to her then points at the warehouse
<DeathStar> *Cheryl pauses and moves toward it, pausing and breaks open the lock, pulling it back. Dust floods out*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> *peers in and a glowing light emits*
<Seraphna> ANgela> "Hrm..."
* ChadWinters` unholsters his gun as he aims it inside.
<Xan> * Kellin pauses at the sight of the glowing light and double backs to the group, moving to flank around the building and find another entrance.
<Seraphna> * Luci holds out her hands and throws up a shield in front of those at the door, a one way, meaning they can fire through it but incoming attacks get blocked.
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel moves the opposite way Kellin did around the building
<DeathStar> *Kellin would find a small side entrance compared to the larger entrance for moving stuff in*
<DeathStar> *Cheryl walks in and sees what looks like large mechs all messed up, as if it was crunched up, or pieces removed. It's littered all over, pieces ripped out here and there*
<Xan> * Kellin checks for a lock, but would otherwise enter as quietly as possible, pistols raised.
* ChadWinters` glances over at the large mechs as he moves inside.
<Seraphna> * Angela peers around at the mechs, thinking they may have been gutted to make a single one of them work. Peering to see if she's right.
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "No movement outside. Whatever it is, its in there with you."
<DeathStar> *the mechs seem to be older models, their firepower weaker, but their armor is actually stronger than current ones. That makes them slower in some in some situations where resistance might affect the armor, so the armor today allows Gears and Mechs to be useful on planets and space*
<DeathStar> *so far though nothing has been combined into one. they would see an office, where there is movement*
* ChadWinters` aims his gun towards the office now as he starts moving towards it.
<Seraphna> Angela> "Maybe I should have brought Montana with us..."
<DeathStar> *Ako leaps up onto the top of the small office, trying to peer into a small window. Cheryl and Zephyr move for the stairs and the door*
<Seraphna> * Si peers about and lets her mini "beta" roll around scanning things, peering around, while Luci steps in and starts having the perimeter secured.
<Seraphna> *Lisa, damnit
<DeathStar> (Lol)
<DeathStar> (Si now)
<Seraphna> (Nah that one is right)
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *keeps her rail gun trained on the warhouse, ready to snipe any giant roge mecha that might attack*
* ChadWinters` glances up at Ako as he moves up the stairs with Cheryl and Zephyr
<DeathStar> *Lisa would find hidden work place underneath the area with her scan, while Cheryl busts the door open and Zephyr aims at Kellin
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> ON THE GROUND
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> *aims her gun at his face*
<Xan> * Kellin blinks and holds his hands and guns up.
<Xan> <Kellin> Friendly!
<Seraphna> Si> "Hey! SOmething here." *she moves to point out the work place*
<DeathStar> *Zephyr pauses and lowers it*
* ChadWinters` clicks his tongue before looking dow at Si.
<Seraphna> Si> "Something's down below."
<DeathStar> *Cheryl moves down and Zephyr pats Kellin*
<DeathStar> *they would all find something glowing down below and energy readings behind this door*
<DeathStar> <Ako> Door #2?
<Xan> <Kellin> Y'almost shot me. * He says, fairly jovial as he moves to catch up with the others.
* ChadWinters` moves down after Cheryl and looks at the door, then his datapad as he scans the energy signature
<DeathStar> *Zephyr holds up fingers - 3*
<DeathStar> *there's definitely something on the other side, but the readings keep changing*
<DeathStar> *Zephyr holds up her gun, on one side - 2*
<DeathStar> *Cheryl prepares her whip*
<Seraphna> Angela> "Potentially unstable...? Or...?"
<Xan> * Kellin gets his guns ready as well.
<DeathStar> *Zephyr holds one finger, then kicks in the door*
<Seraphna> * Angela forms her Holy Sword and kicks with Zephyr, heading in first.
<Xan> * Kellin rounds after Zephyr and Angela, aiming.
* ChadWinters` lets the meat shields go in first
<DeathStar> 6* Zephyr moves to sweep the area where they find a hybrid of Hope and Zephyr standing there, fingers in the wall terminal, downloading something
<DeathStar> *Cheryl pauses, eyeing the person*
<Xan> <Kellin> Uh. * He aims, tilting his head *
<Seraphna> * Luci peers in, then tries to shield the wall terminal, cutting off the Hybrid from accessing it more.
<ChadWinters`> Seem's like he used your DNA already. 6He aims his pistol at it
<Seraphna> * L
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> ... *he turns slowly*
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "What is your status? Did you find soemthing?"
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> *stares, twitching*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Yeah, we found the target
<DeathStar> *she says on comm*
<Seraphna> * Angela forms her helmet and moves in, armored and gripping her glowing sword like a paladin.
<Seraphna> * Si bounces and heads down after the others.
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> *forms wires and grabs Zephyr, pulling her in* DNA recognized
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "Understood. I will hold sniping position in case it makes a run for it."
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> Hey!
<Seraphna> * Angela cuts at the wires.
<Xan> * Kellin blinks and slides around to shoot for the wires.
<Seraphna> Angela> "Fucking bots and their tentacle wires."
<DeathStar> *the wires bend but don't cut easily. The shots bend more*
<DeathStar> *Zephyr strains, trying to break free.*
<Seraphna> * Angela shifts her sword and blasts Holy at Intelligence.
* ChadWinters` fires a shot at the hybrid, aiming for his face
<Seraphna> * Si hurls a fireball at it too.
<ChadWinters`> *its*
<Seraphna> * Luci breaks the shield on the panel and sends it's shards at the back of Intelligence.
<DeathStar> *Intelligence pauses at the hits to it's body, holding Zephyr against it's body now as a shield, as if trying to pull her against itself*
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> *it turns it's face, the flesh burnt and bloodied*
<DeathStar> *the shards cut and blood appears*
<Seraphna> * Angela gets in close and pushes her blade at it's side. "Let. Her. Go. Or you end now."
<ChadWinters`> Zephyr, blast it close range.
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> This is getting annoying. *she moves on the side*
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> ... Yeah.... an blast myself too, you know...
<Xan> * Cheryl's datapad beeps with Kane's virus. Having been set up to send to her once it finishes testing, along with instructions on how to administer it.
<Xan> * Kellin moves to flank, circling, looking for a clear shot.
<DeathStar> *the blade cuts the flesh on the side, but Angela would see that the metal frames out side make up it's real body underneath*
<DeathStar> *doing little real damage*
<DeathStar> *Intelligence bgins to walk past them leaving with Zephyr*
<DeathStar> *Cheryl reads the instrunctions, aiming the datapad*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Fuck off! *she uses it*
<Seraphna> * Angela channels Holy into the blade, letting teh energy eat at the metal, Digging it in to try ands top Intelligence from moving.
* ChadWinters` takes a deep breath and fires two shorts at the Hybrid, curving the bullets around Zephyr and down at it's legs
<Seraphna> * Lisa places a shield in it's exit path.
<DeathStar> *Intelligence is hit by the anti-virus and stumbles, letting Zephyr go as the hits tear more flesh, revealing a metallic frame*
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> Gragh
<DeathStar> *Zephyr flips away. Ako meanwhile seems to be studying the target, musing*
<Xan> * Kellin slides past Zephyr getting between it and her, then fires two charges shots for it.
<DeathStar> *trying to form her manifestation ability, but not to create*
<Seraphna> * Angela pulls the blade out and holds it ready for a coup de grace, peering down at it. "WHatever your planning, this can go another way."
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *chambers an EM shell and lays in wait*
<DeathStar> *The Intelligence looks a bit confused, turning to face them. The metallic shell so far seeming undamaged as Ako touches the chest, trying to break a hole*
<DeathStar> <Ako> come on... *she is grabbed by the throat and tossed*
<Seraphna> * Si blinks and looks over at whoever grabbed Ako.
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> You are annoying me
<Xan> (it was Intilligence)
<Seraphna> * Angela presses the blade down at it's chest.
<Xan> * Kellin moves to try and catch Ako, or at least right her so she lands on her feet.
<DeathStar> *Ako shakes and coughs. Then at the shield blocking it*
<DeathStar> *Angela's sword widens the hole, making it jerk in pain*
<Seraphna> ANgela> "Last chance. You want to live, we can talk this out, but you're trying to conquer, not live."
<ChadWinters`> There. 6He fires a shot, curving it into the wider hole made by Angela
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> ... *it grabs Angela's arm and slams her up through the ceiling hard enough to break the arm and bring some of the roof down, when Chad damages it again*
<Seraphna> * Angela groans and curses, amping the sword's energy even as she falls to burn it some more. "Fuck... good thign I'm getting rid of this..."
<DeathStar> *Cheryl leaps and punches into the hole and Zephyr charges to fire her dragoon bustah at the hole, as Cheryl dives down, the shot barely missing as Intelligence begins to dig upward*
<Xan> * Kellin begins to form his bustah, charging energy in it.
<DeathStar> *pulling building mateial down at the group*
<Seraphna> * Si holds up her hands, and brings fire down fdrom above at Intelligence as it tries to go up.
<ChadWinters`> It's trying to flee. 6He moves backwards as he tries to get away from falling debris
<Seraphna> * Luci creates a shield over people to protect them.
<Seraphna> * Angela shudders and picks herself up with her good arm, forming a new sword in it after standing.
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> It's been damaged. And has the virus in it. Cass, be ready
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "I'm ready for it to poke its head out."
<DeathStar> *the shield protects them for now.*
<DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
<DeathStar> Location: The Base
<DeathStar> *Cran sits with Kaori and Ren, working while Adeline covers her tracks, reaching the road to Mega City. she peers left, then right, sticking her thumb out
<Seraphna> * Tabetha works with Cran, Jennifer overseeing the medical parts of the Nanite process.
<DeathStar> <Cran> ... Can one of you bring that clone Megumi made over to me, so we can test the anti nantite we're all working on it
<Sathen> *Rea moves out through the main entrance, and starts looking for signs of the twins* <on comm> Any indications of where they might go?
<Jackieness> <Myria> *is applying her own eccentric genius to the task at hand*
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> I can do that. 6She nods to Cran and makes her way to it's location
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *comm* "They have alreayd moved beyond our security camera coverage."
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *comm* "They aren't trained spec ops, so try the main road."
<Xan> * Kane waits on Lemon to catch up to him and drives out in the van to track down the kids.
<Sara> * Kaori eyes SPoC, when she was about to do it
<DeathStar> *Lemon drives the van out*
<DeathStar> <Cran> You mind if I have a sample of your blood, Kaori?
<Sathen> Rea> <on comm> Direction? Also may want to get someone in a vehicle out to pick us all up. *heading towards the main road at a steady run*
<DeathStar> *a car stops for Adeline as she looks pathetic
<Sara> <Kaori> ...Okay. Can I ask why me, though? *she notes gently*
<DeathStar> *as the person leans out, Adeline pulls them out and judo chops the person, getting in to drive, putting a block down to reach the pedals and pulls Wade up*
<Xan> <Kane> I'm illegally tasking a satellite to get coverage of the area. * He tells Lemon, working as she drives.
<DeathStar> <Kaori> Your blood is special and it may help the nanites cover more area
<DeathStar> *Cran
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC peers in to Megumi's bakery for the clone
<Sara> * Kaori nods. She queasily sterilizes the equipment and takes a sample from herself
<DeathStar> *SpoC would find a naked Tora sleeping
<Jackieness> <Josephine> *comm* "Kane is already in a van."
<DeathStar> *Lemon drives to pick up Rea, slowing down only enough for Rea to leap on*
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC peers around for a way to move her
<DeathStar> *Cran works, then calls to Daimon*
<DeathStar> *Spoc could use a medical bed to move her*
<DeathStar> <Cran> You, medical boy
<Sathen> *Rea leaps on the side of the van and watches for the kids*
<Seraphna> * Jennifer blows some hair out of her face and checks the charts.
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC moves the medical bed next to her and then push/rolls Tora onto it
<Sathen> *Damian looks over from studing more blood samples* What's on your mind?
<Xan> * Kane slowly leans his head out to peer at Rea, then nods once and leans back in to look for anything suspicious with the satellite
<DeathStar> <Cran> I want you to run a few tests with Jennifer on the nanites and see if our nanites - run a few computer scenarios. We only have a short time, so we can't waste a false nanite combination
<DeathStar> *Adeline drives alone. Kane would find John with his ass up, mugged8
<DeathStar> *on the road*
<Seraphna> * Jennifer nods and starts building the test datasets and samples.
<DeathStar> *Cran takes Kaori's blood and does his own tests, going to use the blood as an ace in the hole*
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC starts moving Tora up to where Cran and the group is
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "I felt for a moment something deeply embarrassing and shameful. I wonder what Johnny is up to."
<Xan> * Kane directs Lemon in that direction, letting out a slow and calm breath.
<Sathen> *Damian nods, moving over to start analyzing things with Jennifer*
<DeathStar> *Lemon speeds up. They soon catch up with a beat up pick up truck*
<Jackieness> <Myria> "He probably got carjacked by soem toddlers or soemthing."
<DeathStar> *Adeline is playing with the radio as she throws out drunk like sex toys, porn magazines and other stuff, littering the road*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> That seems too silly."
<DeathStar> *drunk junk
<Jackieness> <Myria> *looks at Taabetha all seriously* "...we are spekaing of John,:
<Xan> * Kane pulls out a few discs then leans out and holds them out towards Rea on the side of the van.
<Xan> <Kane> Emp. Just need one to connect.
<DeathStar> <Lemon> Is that really necessary?
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC wheels Tora in to the room. 1"I have brought you the clone."
<Seraphna> * Tabetha pouts. "My pilot is a very strange man."
<Xan> <Kane> It will shut down the truck, they'll roll to a stop.
<DeathStar> *Adeline peers and jerks at Kane being there and Rea holding discs*
<DeathStar> <Adeline> Hold on, Wade.
<Sathen> *Rea takes them carefully, pausing for a moment before tossing one of the discs at the side of the truck*
<DeathStar> *Adeline checks the truck for anything like boosters* Come on, come on come on
<Jackieness> <Myria> "You chose him! He's your pilot now! Fufufufuuuu!"
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Now? We've been bonded for over 30 years."
<DeathStar> *Adeline pauses as the truck begins to stop
<DeathStar> <Adeline> ..... *She sighs*
<Xan> <Kane> They're stopping, slow down.
<DeathStar> *Lemon pulls up by them*
<Xan> * Kane leans out to peer at them as they stop by them.
<DeathStar> *Adeline eyes Kane and Lemon. Wade beams, thinking this is totally fun*
<Xan> <Kane> Adeline. Would you care to explain?
<DeathStar> <Adeline> You mind telling me why you plan to put bombs in Wade's head just to stop us in case we turn into monsters? I already know what Chad is like. I pulles tracers off Wade and had to put them on his balls
<Sathen> *Rea jumps off once they're slow enough, looking around the area for trouble and letting Kane and Lemon deal with the kids*
<Jackieness> <Myria> "I'm Erusian. 30 years is like yesterday to me."
<DeathStar> *Adeline crosses her arms*
<DeathStar> *Lemon pauses, lip twitches*
<Xan> <Kane> believe we would allow that to happen? *He looks crushed, though there is a hint of anger not directed towards her*
<DeathStar> <Adeline> You are two people. You got a whole team of psychopaths
<DeathStar> *She notes*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "I'm only 45..."
<Xan> <Kane> You do have a point.
<Xan> * Kane glances to Lemon.
<DeathStar> *Lemon shrugs*
<Sathen> Rea> Psycopaths? Isn't that a bit harsh?
<DeathStar> <Adeline> Also, things are getting kind of hard to think lately...
<Jackieness> <Myria> *pat pats Tabetha on the head* "I remember 45.... ahhhh... elementary school."
<Xan> <Kane> Adeline? Damnit, the virus. We need to get you into cryo but I promise I will protect you.
<DeathStar> *Cran nods to Kaori as Jennifer, Myira and Daiman finish*
<Seraphna> * Tabetha squeaks, then huffs and pinches Myria's butt.
<DeathStar> <Cran> alright, lets do that
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "Righto."
<DeathStar> <Adeline> MAybe the virus, but also I am seeing flashes....
<DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
<DeathStar> Location: Mega City
<DeathStar> 6* Cassandra would see the Intelligence step out of the warehouse and grab the building beginning to push it to knock it down on the others
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *aims for the center of the Intelligen's torso and fires her EM round*
<DeathStar> *The Intelligence pauses, and as if seeing into the future, leaps back, sliding*
<DeathStar> *the blast hitting the ground*
<DeathStar> *but it does let the others have time to get outside*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> ... <Ako> He has good reflexes
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "...the damn thing just dodged!" *chanbers another round and then fires at the Intelligence again*
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel comes in around the side of the building, electricity arcing off her body as she moves quickly in at the hybrid.
<Seraphna> Angela> "...He took Spade's mind. He may have precog abilities."
<DeathStar> *the Intelligence zooms to the side and dodges once more*
<Xan> * Kellin makes note of that
<ChadWinters`> There might be some Spade DNA in side it. 6He begins moving out quickly
<DeathStar> *Cassandra's shot hitting the ground*
<Seraphna> Angela> "If I remember, Spade could only see about 3 seconds into the future. If you can cover shots that stretch past it, he's fucked."
<Xan> <Kellin> Overwhelm him then? * He flanks out towards the right in a circle, aiming aind firing*
<ChadWinters`> Overwhelm it then.
<Seraphna> Angela> Exactly. Make it impossible to dodge them all.
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "I cna pepper the area, but you guys are getting a bit too clsoe*
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel slides past and spins around, spinning her blades in her hands as she comes in again at it, swiping in an X pattern
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> Lets end it then. Then leap back so Cass can take the shot
<Seraphna> Luci> "Keeping... shield up as long as I can... you guys need to clear us a way out."
<DeathStar> *Intelligence grabs Cel and throws her into the water*
<ChadWinters`> <Comm> Wait for the shot Cass. 6He pulls out his other gun and fires two shots low at the ground towards it's feet again
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> ... damage has been received. Downloading data to receivers
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *switches ammo and chambers HEAP rounds* " these." *fires multiples shots one after another*
<DeathStar> *Cheryl dashes in and throws out the whip, going for it's throat*
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel hits the water with a sploosh
<Seraphna> * Angela frowns at the sounds on the comms, then grumbles. "We need to disrupt transmissions."
<Seraphna> * Angela makes her way up, as does Si, who starts building up heat.
<DeathStar> *Zephyr charges the dragoon bustah while Ako forms her crystal swords and dashes in. Intelligence lets the shots hit, unworried, while the heat shots it dodges. Cheryl it grabs the whip, tossing her, and then it smacks Ako's face, making her stumble, bloodied*
<DeathStar> *Zephyr fires her shot at it's chest, making Intelligence dodge*
<Xan> * Kellin also fires for the chest
* ChadWinters` fires another shot as it dodges, aiming for it's chest
<Seraphna> * Angela fires Holy Blasts at it, in a wide spread ocne melee clears a moment.
<DeathStar> *the shots hit the chest again and again and again, widening the hole and the core can be seen*
<Seraphna> * SI tosses a large fireball up into the air and then forces it to implode, hoping to generate an EMP pulse ala Heroes.
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> ... Being overwhelmed. Ah. Spade's weakness
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "Can you immobilize that bastard?"
<Xan> * Kellin begins charging up his bustah again, kneeling to take aim.
<DeathStar> *Intelligence is hit and stumbles, and moves slower, diving into a warehouse*
<ChadWinters`> 6Cel finally climbs out of the water a bit down from the others.
<DeathStar> <Intelligence> *from inside* Straight up fighting is not wise.
<Seraphna> * Angela dissolves her sword and starts setting the broken bone in her arm with her toher hand, growling in pain.
<ChadWinters`> After it. 6He moves towards the warehouse
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> *comm* "Damn it, it went inside again!"
<Seraphna> Si> "Permission to slag the building?"
<Xan> * Kellin tchs, dropping the charges.
<DeathStar> *bulldozers begin to drive out at the team*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Granted
<Xan> <Kellin> Controller burn to push it out towards us?
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Do what is necessary
<Seraphna> * Si calls fire down on the warehouse, setting it alight, then increases the burn, heating the flames to metal-melting levels.
<Xan> * Kellin blinks at the dozers and moves out wide to avoid them
<ChadWinters`> Great. 6He begins to move backwards and out of their way.
<Seraphna> * Luci uses a shield to try flipping a dozer.
<Seraphna> Si> "I hear machines REALLY don't like it hot."
<DeathStar> *Luci would find her shield powers are used up - I think she's used it 5 times*
<Seraphna> * Angela pants, standing tehre and letting her arm reknit itself.
<Seraphna> Luci> "...I'm out."
<ChadWinters`> Do what you have to Si.
<DeathStar> *Cheryl splits into two and both grab the bulldozer, lifting it up*
<Xan> * Kellin moves back in, trying to get eyes on the AI
<DeathStar> *and throws it into the water*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> ... *goes back into one*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> ...
<Seraphna> * SI nods, conitnuing to enhance and spur the flames, using the fire itself to keep fueling itself instead of her own power. The dangers of fire.
<Seraphna> Angela> "...Sis, that was cool what the hell was that?"
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> ... I try not to split up too much. It's a left over reality power of mine
<Seraphna> * ANgela lets her plate like armor form back over her arm, keeping it at rest and restoring her Holy Blade in the better arm.
<DeathStar> *the warehouse keeps burning, with so far the AI refusing to come out*
* ChadWinters` pulls out his datapad, scanning the building to make sure the hybrid so in it
<ChadWinters`> *still in it*
<Seraphna> Angela> "I see..." *she walks up to a Dozer and leaps, slicing at it's tire roters to kill it*
<DeathStar> *it seems to be so far*
<DeathStar> -SCENE SHIFT-
<DeathStar> Location: The Base
<DeathStar> 6* Cran leans over the Tora clone when suddenly, the Tora clone begins to jerk and suddenly begins to look machine like, as wires appear all over her body and she then begins to look like Venerator
<DeathStar> <Cran> ... *he pauses, holding the nanite injector*
<DeathStar> <Cran> How many cures do we have?
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "I think you8'd better test that quick."
<Jackieness> <Myria> *runs over and starts smacking Tora with a giant wrench*
<Sara> * Kaori averts her eyes
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "...Like a dozen. I spread my tests wide."
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC moves to try and restrain the clone
<Sathen> *Damian jerks upright and quickly reaches over to dose the body with elephant level paralytics
<DeathStar> *Cran pauses, then injects himself, seeing a few wires appearing on himself*
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "We already have Angelos on ice. Anyone else we can get to here?"
<DeathStar> <Cran> The kids are coming
<DeathStar> *Adeline and Wade are outside the manor when they jerk, falling over*
<DeathStar> *Venerator rises up on the table, peering around*
<Seraphna> Jennifer> *comms* Christopher, we need to get a cure to them ASAP.
<DeathStar> *then at Myria smacking him*
<Seraphna> * Tabetha holds out a ahnd and uses Goddess Telekenetics to try and hold Venerator down.
<DeathStar> *falling over as he gets bloodied*
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> This does not bold well
<Xan> * Kane jerks, lifting them up and moves quickly towards Cran's lab.
<Sathen> *Damian moves back from Venerator* Alright...I'm fairly useless since that didn't work.
<Seraphna> * Jennifer grabs two cures and runs to meet Kane halfway.
<Jackieness> <Myria> "WAAAAAAAAAH!" *whap whap whap*
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> Cran, do you think the vaccine worked?
<Xan> * Marcus runs in to shoulder charge the Venerator in Cran's lab.
<DeathStar> *Cran eyes his body* So far I'm not going Venerator
<Sara> <Kaori> I... don't like all these wires and stuff...
<DeathStar> *Venerator is thrown into the wall
<Sathen> *Rea lifts one and carries the other with Kane*
<Seraphna> * Tabetha keeps her hand out and holds him there.
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "What about this one?"
<DeathStar> *blood running down his body, and he begins toreach for a console, with one hand, using that to break free*
<DeathStar> <Cran> Try to inject one into him if you want
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> His hand Marcus.
<Sathen> *Orihime looks into Medical and at the commotion* What's going on here?
<DeathStar> *Crna's wires begin to vanish as Kane rrives*
<Seraphna> * Tabetha holds out her otehr hgand and fires into the hand.
<Seraphna> * Jennifer quickly injects the kids.
<Xan> <Marcus> Don't let the fuck get into our systems. * He kicks out to knock the hand away from the console
<DeathStar> *Venerato stares at them* <Venerator> Why...fight me..,?
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "You're using living, innocent people."
<DeathStar> *Adeline and Wade let out a breath, as their wires begin to vanish*
<Sathen> *Damian moves to interject himself between Venerator and any consoles nearby
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> You aren't giving us much of a choice I believe.
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "That's all I need to know to know I have to stop you."
<Xan> * Marcus slides around, trying to grapple Venerator in a full nelson.
<DeathStar> *Venerator strains, then he begins to slump a bit, as the VI body burns out in the warehouse, leaving just this body*
<Jackieness> <Myria> *breathes heavily and wobbles*
<DeathStar> <Cran> ... we need to disperse this atmosphere now
<Xan> <Marcus> I'm open to suggestions. * He strains
<Seraphna> * Tabetha nods. "Dirty Bombs in high atmo."
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> What is happening to it now?
<DeathStar> <Cran> *nods to Tabetha* Do it
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "We may have some dispersal bombs in the armory. Load them and I will have our reploids teleport them up high."
<Sathen> Orihime> Why use bombs?
<Xan> * Kane breaths a sigh of relief, holding Adeline and Wade in a hug.
<DeathStar> <Cran> I say you have just a minute or two though
<DeathStar> <Cran> Or we'll have more of these assholes out there
<DeathStar> *Cran kicks Venerator in the gut8
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> Maximum dispersal.
<DeathStar> *Venerator falls over, face down*
<Xan> <Marcus> What if we inject it now, can it still spread?
<Seraphna> * Tabetha nods, using an override code to Teleport Ash to them and starts to load the bombs as Reese rushes tehm over. She sets a short timer on each.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Hard to say. *he shrugs*
<Xan> * Marcus nods, calling Cole over to help Ash disperse the cure.
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Myria, get me coordinates for a global drop. You have 30 seconds." *She finishes loading them and setting Ash to deliver them, pausing to divide them with Cole*
<Jackieness> <Myria> "Eeeee!" *scrambles to a console and does calculations*
<Xan> <Cole> This is going to take a lot of teleports....I hope I have the energy.
<ChadWinters`> 6SPoC peers over at the Venerator clone, sutdying it
<DeathStar> *Adeline and Wade take a few breaths, eyeing the unconscious Venerator*
<DeathStar> <Adeline> That could have been me?
<Seraphna> * Tabetha sets them both with a comms to recieve each jump coordinate, and has them each start at locations they know well to have some clones, Mega City and Tokyo.
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> Possibily, yes.
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Go."
<Jackieness> <Myria> "Here, here, here, and here!"
<Xan> * Cole takes his payload and begins to teleport off.
<Xan> * Kane nods as well.
<DeathStar> <Cran> This Tora person had her DNA overwriten. Hard to say if she can come back
<Seraphna> * Tabetha sends Ash off.
<Xan> * Marcus glances around to see if there's anything left of the serum to try on Tora's body.
<Jackieness> <Myria> "Its like being turned into a zombie!"
<DeathStar> *Wade shivers and cries*
<DeathStar> *any serums left is up to Sera*
<Seraphna> * Jennifer pauses and lets the Presidential team know what they did to prevent panic about strangbe bombs going off.
<DeathStar> *Stacey pauses upon being alerted and then shakes Dias by the neck*
<Xan> <Kane> Shhh, it's okay, you're safe now. * He tells Wade, leading him and Adeline back to their rooms.
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "Should have enough to try dosing a few others."
<Jackieness> <Myria> "Huh..." *walks over to the kids* "Ignore the bad men fighting."
<Xan> * Marcus shrugs and tries it on the Tora.
<ChadWinters`> 6Dias acks as head bounces from side to side.
<Seraphna> Jennifer> "Always have to keep extra considering how often we find out someone else is a clone."
<ChadWinters`> <Dias> Let's be presidential! 6He wobbles a bit from all the head shaking
<Seraphna> * Jennifer waves her hand to the cures, moving to take one to their Angelos-icle.
<Xan> <Marcus> Power like this...we'll be lucky if we actually manage to stop it here.
<DeathStar> *Venerator's body shifts into Tora's though it doesn't quite look right anymore, something not quite like Tora.*
<Xan> <Marcus> ...Megumi is going to be pissed.
<Jackieness> <Myria> *walks back into the lab* "All this because human cloning is so primitive." *starts to tinker*
<DeathStar> <Cran> Hm. Her DNA is a bit messed up. I would just put her out of her misery and begin again
<ChadWinters`> <SPoC> That is unfortunate
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "We can always grow another, I think. SHe likes to keep a lot of samples... weird samples."
<Sathen> *Orihime shrugs and moves off since nobody answered her*
<DeathStar> *Cran moves to go. Ren watches him go, patting Kaori*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Is this one... still concious?"
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "I'm not scanning a brain with possible Spade in it."
<Xan> <Marcus> I'll...leave that up to Megumi. *He sends her a message to let her know what's happened, taking the tora clone to the med lab to restrain her.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Who knows but she could be dangerous. I just hope this is over for now
<DeathStar> -TIME JUMP-
<DeathStar> *after all the groups are back, Cheryl drops the gooy metal body of VI on the table*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> This is all that remains. It seems to be offline. And so far reports are coming in that the clones are returning to normal. Hopefully no Venerators were reborn
<Seraphna> * Angela sits with a cast on, despite her dragoon healing she seems to have still needed some more healing time.
* ChadWinters` crosses his arms as he looks at it. 1"We should have him the AI backed in to a corner for now."
<Jackieness> <Myria> *pops up and scans the VI body*
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Keep it away from anything networked and isolate just in case."
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Ideally the AI is now dead."
<ChadWinters`> Ideally, yes.
<Xan> <Marcus> You know, we didn't actually get bothered by Sunny or Lev. Makes me wonder if this was the main AI.
<ChadWinters`> You think it wouldn't have a back up of itself somewhere in case this happened? 6He looks over at Marcus
<Seraphna> Tabetha> "Or if he didn't just execute or convert them when they were no longer useful."
<Jackieness> <Josephine> "Or they were busy doing soemthing else while we were distracted."
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> I am sure we will see those two again - they are mercenaries for hire
<Xan> <Marcus> I don't know. We just have to hope that this vulnerability was because of Necia's intervention.
<Xan> <Kellin> But who's paying them now?
<DeathStar> <Vesta> True. She likely prevented it from reaching them to buy them again
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> The highest bidder, I imagine.
* ChadWinters` nods to Cheryl. 1"It's what merc's do."
<DeathStar> *Ren walks to Cran a moment before Cran walks up to them*
<Xan> * Kane steps in and walks over to put a hand on Chad's shoulder.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Now that the job is done, I will be heading back to my corporation
<DeathStar> *Cran nods and walks off. Cheryl watches him go*
<Seraphna> Angela> "Hey, Alexander."
<Jackieness> <Cassandra> "Ok... he just left."
<DeathStar> *Cran hands Angelos something*
<Seraphna> * Angela rises and walks after him. Angelos taking the something and peering at it.
<DeathStar> <Cran> Here's a test sample for your powers, but it's just a test. It's not finished. It may have side effects. Use at your own risk for now
<DeathStar> *he turns to Angela*
<ChadWinters`> Think he snuck anything else in to that cure? 6He looks over at Cheryl
<Seraphna> * Angels nods and pockets it.
<Seraphna> Angela> "Alex." *she moves with him a bit for some privacy*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> If so he used it on himself
<Xan> * Kane steps aside and there's a small disc on Chad's shoulder, an electric jolt would go out to stun him.
<DeathStar> *Cran raises a brow and walks with Angela, while peering back at Chad a moment being stunned*
<ChadWinters`> Tru...6He jerks as he drops to his knees.
<Xan> * Marcus leans forward, glancing from Cheryl to Kane and Chad.
<DeathStar> *Cheryl pauses, tilting head*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> I miss something?
<Seraphna> * Angela smiles. "I know people aren't trusting you overnight or anything but... I beleive everyone deserves a chance. I was kind of literally created because someone believed that for me."
* ChadWinters` reaches up to the small disc and yanks it off, glancing at it then at Kane. 1"Care to explain?"
<Xan> <Kane> Not only did his callous remarks almost lead to the death of my children, but he also put meddling fingers near them in the form of tracers.
<DeathStar> <Cran> *he pauses and nods* Thank you
<Seraphna> Angela> "Come to dinner sometime."
<DeathStar> <Cran> I will consider it. *he nods*
<Xan> <Kane> You will leave them alone or the next one will not just be a jolt. * He says calmly.
<Seraphna> * Angela nods. "And... thanks. You really helped us out of a tight situation here... and thanks for looking out for Angelos. He's a bit like that annoying kid brother we never wanted, but he's family."
* ChadWinters` groans slightly as he stands up. 1"She's a lot smarter then I anticipated" 6He rotates his shoulder. 1"Noted, Kane."
<Xan> * Kane stands there a moment longer then glances to Cheryl and nods once before stepping out.
<DeathStar> *Cran pats her shoulder as he exits, and Cheryl lets out a breath, peering at Marcus*
<Xan> <Marcus> ... *He considers something to himself.*
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Glad this is your job now
<DeathStar> <Cheryl> Ha ha ha
<DeathStar> *Cheryl moves off and Zephyr peers at Marcus*
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> ... this is totally my job, too, isn't it?
<Seraphna> * Angela smiles a bit and heads back to the others.
<Xan> <Marcus> Yes, yes it is.
<DeathStar> <Zephyr> .... fuck me
<DeathStar> -END-
* Xan has quit IRC (Quit: - A hand crafted IRC client)
