(1:56:19 AM) Tox|Laptop1: Vance yawns and stretches out in the troop compartment.
(1:57:11 AM) Maddy: Alice climbs into the spotter seat.
(1:57:31 AM) Ragazzo: Dusty has stowed himself away somewhere.
(1:57:32 AM) E4D: <Take 'er on out, Jill.>
(1:57:50 AM) Dawny: Jillian fires her up and away they go.

(1:59:21 AM) E4D: "We're going to a goddamn gas station. The last thing we fucking need is for you to set the bitch on fire on kill everyone."

(2:03:09 AM) E4D: He raises the ramp, then bangs on the forward hatch. «Go for it.»
(2:03:09 AM) E4D: Jason steps over to the BFT, settling down in the seat. "You got the route, Jill?" He posts it. It's not far, a mile or two away, along a road on the outskirts of town.
(2:03:39 AM) Dawny: «Got it» and they were off…again
(2:03:54 AM) E4D: JoeyDrood, perception.

(2:07:11 AM) E4D: The LAV trundles down the road, making its way after a few minutes to a ramshackle gas station. The lights are off.
(2:07:50 AM) Maddy: «I hope t-they have gas.»
(2:08:40 AM) Tox|Laptop: «They probably do. If they were wiped away in an instant, nobody's here to drain all the gas.»
(2:09:05 AM) Dawny: «Who's going to fuel?»
(2:09:36 AM) Tox|Laptop: «I will, if nobody else wants to.»
(2:09:51 AM) E4D: «This bumfuck place only had 77 people in it when it still existed.»

(2:11:42 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance drops the rear ramp. «Light might help, thank you, Alanoch.» He exits and blinks in the darkness.
(2:11:47 AM) E4D: Nothing. As far as the eye can see.
(2:12:08 AM) Maddy: «N-nothing out there. W-we want l-light, guys?»
(2:12:20 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Should we risk it?»
(2:13:41 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance takes the fuel pump handle and starts the fueling process, doing the best he can, checking left and right, even though it's pitch-black.
(2:14:27 AM) Nioki: «I can try to limit the area that has light. I won't be able to do that for as long, though. And I'd need to be outside.»
(2:14:36 AM) E4D: The thing doesn't run.
(2:14:43 AM) E4D: Vance is holding a dead pump.
(2:14:47 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Crap. Fuel pump's broken.»

(2:15:14 AM) Dawny: «Siphon»
(2:15:19 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Hm. I don't know much…but if it draws from the — yeah, that's my next thought. Now, where're the mechanisms housed for these things….»
(2:15:35 AM) E4D: «Siphon hundreds of gallons of diesel.»
(2:16:20 AM) Tox|Laptop: «That's assuming the tanks are even aboveground…..I think we should bring the pumps back online. Isn't there usually a shed that houses the workings?»
(2:16:22 AM) Maddy: «W-well, someone d-do something.»
(2:16:33 AM) Nioki: «We have mechanics, don't we? Maybe they should take a look so we know what the problem is.»
(2:16:35 AM) E4D: «Jill?»
(2:17:10 AM) Dawny: «Rog» Jillian climbs out with her M-16 and looks around.
(2:17:21 AM) Tox|Laptop: «I need some light if I'm going to start hunting for the pumps.» He walks back to the front of the LAV and brings his SCAR to ready.
(2:17:24 AM) E4D: In addition to the standard islands, there's an above-ground fuel tank a short distance away with its own pump.
(2:17:51 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Ah, that looks promising.» He makes for that tank and examines it, trying the pump.
(2:19:45 AM) E4D: He still has no success.
(2:20:19 AM) Dawny: Jillian walks over "Let me try"
(2:20:20 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Crud. Jill, can I get your eyes on this? Maybe you can coax it back to life?»
(2:20:26 AM) Tox|Laptop: "By all means."

JoeyDrood stares off into the distance. There was a time, not all that long ago, when he was sailing the high seas with a real life pirate… He can even smell the sea.

JoeyDrood closes his eyes, once he's on top.
(3:02:03 AM) Nioki: There's a flash of what's not so much light as a solid whiteness. At least, that's what it feels like at first.
(3:03:56 AM) Nioki: Everything within a quarter mile of the LAV is lit up by a light that comes from shifting almost every scrap of light there into a single point in the visible spectrum.

(3:04:51 AM) Nioki: To call it blinding is a slight understatement. It's probably visible from space.
(3:05:40 AM) E4D: The eyes of the contention, staring, warped animals surrounding them are melted from their sockets. Moments later, the only sounds are the writhing dogs, scritching against the pavement, snapping at each other in a wild fury.
(3:06:01 AM) Nioki: The LAV itself is bathed in a solid swarm of threads of absolute darkness.
(3:06:12 AM) Dawny: «Is it safe?»
(3:06:35 AM) JoeyDrood: «Is it secret?»
(3:07:07 AM) Nioki: Alanoch slumps over, blood running from his mouth. The threads begin to fade away.
(3:07:19 AM) Maddy: Alice slams the door shut.
(3:08:05 AM) Dawny: Jillian starts Eve up. Can she see through the threads yet?
(3:08:14 AM) Maddy: "Shit, shit, shit!" Alice fist goes to stop the bleeding from Vance's leg.

(3:09:10 AM) ***JoeyDrood crawls in the top and slumps into a gunner seat, breathign hard.

(3:09:42 AM) E4D: He's bleeding bad, and it's not stopping. There's something wrong with the wound.
(3:09:55 AM) Nioki: Alanoch lets out a rasping breath, and opens his eyes.
(3:10:07 AM) Maddy: "Oh g-god, I c-can't stop the b-bleeding."
(3:10:09 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance's face is paling from bloodloss.

(3:12:02 AM) Dawny: Jillian drives to camp.
(3:13:38 AM) E4D: The LAV rumbles off down the road, away from the dead and dying dingoes without its payload.
(3:13:57 AM) Maddy: "W-what the hell…it's…fuck." She tries to tourniquet it.
(3:15:04 AM) Nioki: "Did it wor-" *cough* "D-did it work?"
(3:15:30 AM) Dawny: "Yes Alanoch, you did very well.
(3:15:31 AM) Dawny: "
(3:17:08 AM) Nioki: "Oh. Good. I can't see anything and my tongue hurts."
(3:17:39 AM) Dawny: "We'll get you fixed up kid, no worries"
(3:18:25 AM) Nioki: Alanoch slumps forward, and coughs again. Several black threads spill from his eyes.
(3:18:52 AM) Ragazzo left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(3:19:10 AM) Dawny: And they arrive at camp?
(3:19:22 AM) JoeyDrood: "My god. It's full of stars."
(3:19:42 AM) E4D: They arrive at camp, the LAV pulling in amongst Florence and El Diablo.
(3:19:53 AM) Dawny: «MEdical NOW!»
(3:20:06 AM) E4D: And, SCENE
(3:20:11 AM) Dawny: Jillian hits the ramp drop and hops out.
(3:20:11 AM) E4D: Back to the main.
