Dec 20 19:11:22 <dexandroid> Myr pauses, eyes going wide, and shoots to her feet, looking out at the dark.
Dec 20 19:13:06 <Pemander> Ari hops out of the trailer and stretches her arms over her head.
Dec 20 19:13:36 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte is around here somewhere, doing Charlotte-like things.
Dec 20 19:14:21 <Maddy> Utica New York is still out there, a dead and dark city, and not far from where they need to go. The smell is still rather faint.
Dec 20 19:14:37 <Echo> "That's… that smells like when those things showed up."
Dec 20 19:15:20 <dexandroid> "We should get going."
Dec 20 19:17:12 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle is suddenly there
Dec 20 19:17:18 <Gara> Emma isn't, she's napping somewhere.
Dec 20 19:17:23 <Pemander> She heads over to her bike. "Yeah. Sure."
Dec 20 19:17:27 <Gara> Probably in the back Eels!
Dec 20 19:17:50 <Echo> Scott stares down at the roof of the trailer, then scoots to the edge and slides down off the side.
Dec 20 19:18:02 <Echo> "Guess so."
Dec 20 19:18:35 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle notices everybody getting ready to roll out and walks to Eels, folding up the slice of pizza he was eating and finishing it along the way
Dec 20 19:19:03 <Maddy> Elle is standing by the LAV looking at a ma and thinking things over.
Dec 20 19:19:05 <Echo> He heads into the rear of the LAV, pops open the gear locker… and starts rummaging around.
Dec 20 19:19:06 <dexandroid> Myr climbs down and buried of towards the Eve. «we're getting going. Pack up.»
Dec 20 19:19:56 <Echo> «Yeah, yeah, gimme a second. I'm grabbing some stuff."
Dec 20 19:20:07 <Gara> «Where to, what's going on?»
Dec 20 19:20:54 <Echo> «Those things that's been coming after us? We're gonna go after them.»
Dec 20 19:21:17 <Pemander> Ari starts up the engine and sits on the motorcycle, waiting.
Dec 20 19:21:18 <PaulS_laptop> «Good.»
Dec 20 19:21:20 <Gara> «… The things that intentionally didn't kill me?»
Dec 20 19:21:37 <Maddy> «Guys, I think this is the best chance we;re gonna get. Can't let these things get us thist close to what we need.>
Dec 20 19:21:42 <Gara> «Fucki-» Beat. «Sorry, uh, okay.»
Dec 20 19:22:00 <Maddy> «Anyone who wants to come with, head over to the LAV, I have…kinda of a plan?»
Dec 20 19:22:21 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle starts Eels up. The old engine kicks over and he pushes the choke back in before dismounting and heading over to the LAV
Dec 20 19:22:30 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte tightens her gloves and pats the switchblade in her pocket before heading over to the LAV.
Dec 20 19:22:43 <Echo> Scott slaps the side of the hull a few times. "I'm in here!"
Dec 20 19:22:59 <Maddy> "Well come oout here then."
Dec 20 19:23:07 <Gara> Emma pops out of Eels's bed. "Okay, yeah, hey." And walks over.
Dec 20 19:23:35 <Pemander> Ari guides the bike over to the LAV and puts the kickstand down once more, then turns off the engine. "I thought we were goin'."
Dec 20 19:23:53 <dexandroid> Myr leans on Eve, listening. She seems impatient.
Dec 20 19:23:55 <Echo> Scott temporarily abandons his dig in the gear locker and steps down the ramp.
Dec 20 19:24:58 <Echo> He's holding an absolutely obnoxious shotgun. "Yo! Kyle!"
Dec 20 19:25:08 <PaulS_laptop> "Yo"
Dec 20 19:25:13 <Gara> "… What is that."
Dec 20 19:25:20 <Gara> "And do we have another?"
Dec 20 19:25:20 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle doesn't even need to ask
Dec 20 19:25:21 <Echo> Scott makes a circle over his head with a finger. "Elle's got something for us. Bring it in."
Dec 20 19:25:22 <PaulS_laptop> he just grins
Dec 20 19:25:43 <Echo> He tosses the thing in Kyle's direction. A quadruple-barreled shotgun.
Dec 20 19:26:00 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle catches it
Dec 20 19:26:17 <PaulS_laptop> "Where'd you find this thing?" clearly pleased
Dec 20 19:27:11 <Maddy> "Well it's not a total plan. There way too much we don't know going into this place, but…" she points to the trailer. "…we hook the trailer up to the SUV, whoever's not coming with us takes those to somewhere safe in Utica."
Dec 20 19:27:46 <Echo> "And then?"
Dec 20 19:27:51 <Maddy> "The rest of us pile into Eels and the LAV and head to the facility. I want people to beabel to get out and as far away from here as possible if then need to."
Dec 20 19:28:01 <Maddy> "Well, the people not coming now anyways."
Dec 20 19:28:23 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle nods
Dec 20 19:28:38 <Gara> "I can go."
Dec 20 19:28:39 <Echo> "So my Hummer's gonna take the trailer out of town, and we're gonna take the combat vehicles in."
Dec 20 19:28:46 <Gara> She's determined as hell.
Dec 20 19:28:49 <Maddy> "If at all possible, I think our best bet is it set off the site nuke…" she frowns. "Assumign it's working and has a timer so we can get out of here."
Dec 20 19:28:50 <Echo> Scott looks over at Emma. "That knee all right?"
Dec 20 19:28:58 <Gara> "I've had worse."
Dec 20 19:29:02 <MonkeyBomb> <Sounds fun.>
Dec 20 19:29:11 <PaulS_laptop> "We can probably rig a timer anyway"
Dec 20 19:29:15 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte pauses… That sounds like something Arianna would say.
Dec 20 19:29:30 <Maddy> "If it's on manual start…well I'm not gonna make you draw straws, you guys just get out and safe."
Dec 20 19:29:49 <Echo> "… Let's just hold off on the morbid shit."
Dec 20 19:29:53 <Gara> "Lets not have a bullshit arguement about that later, at least, yeah."
Dec 20 19:29:59 <Maddy> The smell of rotting eggs gets stronger…you think you can hear marching in the distance.
Dec 20 19:30:01 <Gara> "And assume it has a timer until we can prove otherwise."
Dec 20 19:30:17 <PaulS_laptop> "You guys smell that?"
Dec 20 19:30:21 <MonkeyBomb> <Yes.>
Dec 20 19:30:23 <Gara> "We'll burn that bridge when we get to it. Now, on burning, I'll be on the technical."
Dec 20 19:31:04 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle nods in her direction
Dec 20 19:31:36 <Echo> "There… we got any more information on the facility?"
Dec 20 19:31:42 <Maddy> There's the sound of tree limbs breaking, and you can feel heavy boom…boom…boom. It's in time with the marching, but separate.
Dec 20 19:31:51 <PaulS_laptop> "If you smell gas, for God's sake don't fire it"
Dec 20 19:31:56 <Echo> "How big it is, a map, anything?"
Dec 20 19:31:56 <Pemander> Ari sighs. "I really wanted to take the bike."
Dec 20 19:32:05 <Gara> "I won't, I really like to not burn to death."
Dec 20 19:32:06 <dexandroid> Myr looks out to the sounds, the dull roar in the distance, letting out a shivering sigh.
Dec 20 19:32:37 <Maddy> "Looks like they didn't have anything else at the site to prevent cross contam, so ots probably not too huge, just far down."
Dec 20 19:32:39 <Gara> She hobbles over to the flamethrower.
Dec 20 19:32:48 <Gara> Assuming it's in earshot
Dec 20 19:33:01 <PaulS_laptop> it is, but the muffler blew out last time so it's pretty goddamn loud
Dec 20 19:33:17 <Gara> Yeah, no, she stays so she can hear,.
Dec 20 19:33:26 <Maddy> You start to see shaps in the darkness.
Dec 20 19:33:27 <Pemander> "We should probably get a move on. Like, now-ish."
Dec 20 19:33:33 <Gara> "Kay."
Dec 20 19:33:49 <Maddy> Elle nods and gets into the LAV to drive.
Dec 20 19:33:51 <Pemander> Arianna takes off her gloves and wiggles her black fingers, then cracks her neck.
Dec 20 19:33:55 <Gara> She hobbles over to the flamethrower.
Dec 20 19:34:02 <Echo> "I'm gonna go through this gear real quick."
Dec 20 19:34:04 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle walks over to the improvised deathmachine
Dec 20 19:34:21 <Pemander> She hops off the bike and then hops into Eels.
Dec 20 19:34:34 <PaulS_laptop> "I think I saw a rocket launcher there at one point!" back to Scott
Dec 20 19:34:55 <Gara> "There's… is the LAV the Narnia of gear?"
Dec 20 19:34:56 <Maddy> Assumadly someone hooks the trailer up to the SUV.
Dec 20 19:35:02 <Echo> "Yeah… who wants it."
Dec 20 19:35:06 <Ragazzo> Arnold's doing that.
Dec 20 19:35:13 <Ragazzo> He's just there now.
Dec 20 19:35:20 <Ragazzo> Hooking that shit up.
Dec 20 19:35:22 <Echo> "And yeah, we got a shit-ton of ordnance back here. Kyle, get over here for a minute."
Dec 20 19:35:28 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle walks back over
Dec 20 19:35:34 <Maddy> Bou is in the drivers seat of the SUV.
Dec 20 19:35:36 <Echo> "Ari! C'mere!"
Dec 20 19:35:37 <dexandroid> Myr stares at Ariannas hand for a moment, but climbs in after her.
Dec 20 19:35:55 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte tries to make herself useful.
Dec 20 19:35:59 <Pemander> "What, what, what."
Dec 20 19:36:10 <Pemander> She pokes her head out, nudging Myrtle into the seat.
Dec 20 19:36:24 <Gara> Emma keeps her eyes open.
Dec 20 19:36:33 <Echo> Scott reaches out without looking over, still digging through the box. He's holding a very large knife by the blade. Looks like it's made of… a bunch of wicked-ass shark teeth.
Dec 20 19:36:56 <Pemander> "Looks stupid."
Dec 20 19:36:58 <Echo> Disregard
Dec 20 19:37:12 <Pemander> dammit
Dec 20 19:37:27 <Ragazzo> Arnold wanders over to arianna and folks once he's done.
Dec 20 19:37:43 <Echo> He tosses a SMAW out. then two canisters. "Rocket launcher's here!"
Dec 20 19:38:04 <Echo> What looks like a large, square, canvas-covered block comes next.
Dec 20 19:38:22 <Echo> "Uhhhh… that's C-4."
Dec 20 19:38:32 <PaulS_laptop> "How much we got?"
Dec 20 19:38:32 <Pemander> "We had C-4?"
Dec 20 19:38:45 <dexandroid> "Yes arianna."
Dec 20 19:38:54 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle sets up the SMAW beside the LAV «Emma, you want the rockets?»
Dec 20 19:38:55 <Echo> "Uh, yeah, looks like a kilo."
Dec 20 19:39:01 <Gara> «Yeah.»
Dec 20 19:39:39 <PaulS_laptop> "Unless Elle wants it, I'll take the C4"
Dec 20 19:39:42 <Pemander> "Well, whatever. If you don't have anything for me, I'm going back in." Arianna climbs back over Myrtle and sits in the far seat.
Dec 20 19:40:18 <Echo> He starts tossing out frag grenades by the handfuls, then pulls a belt of a half-dozen of them, strapping it around his waist.
Dec 20 19:40:19 <Echo> "Fuck…"
Dec 20 19:40:33 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle busts out laughing
Dec 20 19:40:42 <dexandroid> Myr pauses, climbing out. "Scott you have the key for the lockbox?"
Dec 20 19:41:05 <Pemander> She flicks her wrist and a Daevite knife slides out of her sleeve. "Going to go full ink this time. Might as well, I guess."
Dec 20 19:41:24 <dexandroid> "I want the mask."
Dec 20 19:41:25 <Echo> He abandons the gear locker, then stands, popping open an improvised medical cabinet. Without looking, he tosses it over.
Dec 20 19:41:31 <Pemander> "Maybe seeing one of their own tearing them apart will make them think twice."
Dec 20 19:41:50 <Ragazzo> "Mmmmmask?"
Dec 20 19:41:51 <Maddy> Atropa is standing by the SUV looking concerned.
Dec 20 19:41:52 <Echo> He pulls out six shrink-wrapped autoinjectors, stuffing three in each cargo pocket.
Dec 20 19:41:54 <Gara> ~Yeah I don't like that even a tiny little shred of a bit.~ "Okay."
Dec 20 19:42:07 <Gara> She continues to look around.
Dec 20 19:42:21 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle takes the C4 and drops it into a cargo pocket
Dec 20 19:42:40 <PaulS_laptop> Begins piling grenades onto his belt
Dec 20 19:43:09 <Echo> After that, he goes back to the supply box, pulls out a hefty-looking machine gun, and a can of ammo. "Fired one of these at a machine gun shoot once…"
Dec 20 19:43:20 <Pemander> "Hey." Ari grabs Myrtle's wrist. "Don't die, okay?"
Dec 20 19:43:26 <Gara> "Who wants that?"
Dec 20 19:43:33 <Echo> He pops the feed tray, slaps it closed, racks the bolt, and pulls the trigger. "Yep. I stillll got it."
Dec 20 19:43:43 <dexandroid> Myr snatches a silver, sinister looking comedy mask from the air. She hears its whispers, its urge to burn.
Dec 20 19:43:48 <Echo> "There's another one in there. Two cans of ammo left."
Dec 20 19:43:50 <Maddy> «Guys, starting to pick up some o these assholes on the heat cam…some of them are huge…suggesting the non-combatents take off.»
Dec 20 19:44:01 <MonkeyBomb> <Do we have any flares?> Charlotte asks. <Never know when you might want some light.>
Dec 20 19:44:05 <PaulS_laptop> "We'll throw it into Eels"
Dec 20 19:44:10 <Gara> <We have NVGs.>
Dec 20 19:44:13 <Gara> «»
Dec 20 19:44:15 <Ragazzo> Arnold dinks about, grabbing weapons and such that he thinks he'll need.
Dec 20 19:44:18 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle enters, grabbing the 240 and slinging it
Dec 20 19:44:22 <Gara> Emma does not suddenly become a telepath.
Dec 20 19:44:23 <Echo> "NVGs. Pass them out."
Dec 20 19:44:24 <dexandroid> She gives a shaky breath and holds it in one hand, looking to Ari. "Looks like we're not making it out."
Dec 20 19:44:39 <dexandroid> "Not the same, at least."
Dec 20 19:44:40 <Echo> Scott grabs a pair and leaves the LAV, rounding the corner. He almost runs into Atropa.
Dec 20 19:44:56 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle grabs a pair, throwing them on his head
Dec 20 19:44:56 <Pemander> Ari frowns.
Dec 20 19:44:58 <Maddy> She hugs him.
Dec 20 19:45:08 <Gara> "Kyle, toss me some of those."
Dec 20 19:45:11 <Maddy> "You're coming back, ok?"
Dec 20 19:45:12 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte still wants some flares…
Dec 20 19:45:36 <PaulS_laptop> A pair of NVGs get proferred to Emma
Dec 20 19:45:38 <dexandroid> Myr glances to Charlotte. "Scott take care of the kid."
Dec 20 19:45:57 <MonkeyBomb> She frowns. <I can take care of myself.>
Dec 20 19:46:01 <Pemander> Arianna claps her hands over her mouth. "You two have a kid?!"
Dec 20 19:46:06 <Pemander> "…oh, that one."
Dec 20 19:46:12 <Gara> "Pffffftttt."
Dec 20 19:46:22 <Echo> Scott returns it and kisses her cheek.
Dec 20 19:46:28 <MonkeyBomb> She ignores them and proceeds to dig around for some flares.
Dec 20 19:46:30 <dexandroid> "Ah-ha. Ah ha
Dec 20 19:46:32 <dexandroid> ."
Dec 20 19:46:33 <Echo> "We'll be back in a couple hours, okay?"
Dec 20 19:46:59 <PaulS_laptop> "Emma. Catch"
Dec 20 19:47:09 <PaulS_laptop> A sawed off shotgun looking thing comes sailing out
Dec 20 19:47:17 <Gara> Emma catches.
Dec 20 19:48:00 <MonkeyBomb> Presumably, Charlotte finds some flares and stuffs them in her backpack.
Dec 20 19:48:07 <Gara> She totally put on her NVGs too. "What's this?"
Dec 20 19:48:11 <Maddy> She nods. "I could…" she holds her hand up. "Send you with some of my stuff? Wont do much but…"
Dec 20 19:48:13 <Echo> Scott pulls her around back toward the rear of the LAV, and climbs back up the ramp, grabbing the last casevac bag off a hook.
Dec 20 19:48:20 <Echo> "Do it."
Dec 20 19:48:28 <dexandroid> Myr climbs back in after Ari again.
Dec 20 19:48:49 <PaulS_laptop> "Wierd shotgun thing I found. Backup gun?"
Dec 20 19:48:49 <Ragazzo> Arnold gets in some vehicle, after getting all his stuff.
Dec 20 19:49:09 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle heads back to Eels, with a rocket launcher and machine gun
Dec 20 19:49:22 <Gara> "Sure."
Dec 20 19:49:27 <PaulS_laptop> "I'll pass the rocket up to you. MG stays in the cab unless we got another shooter up top with you"
Dec 20 19:49:31 <Gara> "Yeah."
Dec 20 19:49:44 <Maddy> Atorpa nods, secreting the aloe stuff for put in a bottle. Basically it's her power without her being there, 3 uses, 1 body per use, each person can only use it once.
Dec 20 19:49:50 <Pemander> "So Troy never came back, huh."
Dec 20 19:50:07 <Gara> Emma takes the rocket. "Yeah that's fine."
Dec 20 19:51:56 <dexandroid> "No. It was him or everyone else."
Dec 20 19:51:59 <Ragazzo> Arnold has obtained a sniper rifle in addition to his usual gear. He's patiently checking it over.
Dec 20 19:52:15 <Gara> "Arnold, what's that?"
Dec 20 19:52:38 <Echo> Scott steps back out of the LAV, loaded down. He gives Atropa another hug. "You got a radio, right?"
Dec 20 19:52:49 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte considers grabbing a pistol or something, but the words "friendly fire" come to mind. She'll stick with her knife and flares for now.
Dec 20 19:53:01 <Maddy> "Yeah." she gives him the bottle of stuff. "We'll be in Utica."
Dec 20 19:53:09 <dexandroid> Myr holds the mask in her lap. "Maybe we'll see him again."
Dec 20 19:53:22 <Echo> He nods, and shoves it into a cargo pocket with the autoinjectors.
Dec 20 19:53:30 <Echo> "Keep it on, okay?"
Dec 20 19:53:33 <dexandroid> "Good luck, Elle. Stay sharp."
Dec 20 19:54:11 * lurkd (PI.D70B510C.CD527FFC.BA07CB2D|tibbiM#PI.D70B510C.CD527FFC.BA07CB2D|tibbiM) has joined #afteraction
Dec 20 19:54:31 <Pemander> "I never really figured him out."
Dec 20 19:54:53 <PaulS_laptop> "You good up there?" to Emma
Dec 20 19:55:01 <Echo> "Be safe, all right? We'll be in Utica in a few hours, yeah?"
Dec 20 19:55:02 <Gara> "Golden."
Dec 20 19:55:08 <Ragazzo> "Hmm?"
Dec 20 19:55:12 <dexandroid> "The foundation… broke him. Like, he couldn't not contain."
Dec 20 19:55:16 <Ragazzo> "It's a sniper rifle."
Dec 20 19:55:27 <Ragazzo> "I'm going to shoot things with it."
Dec 20 19:55:34 <Gara> "That's the idea."
Dec 20 19:55:39 <dexandroid> "He's a good man but…"
Dec 20 19:55:49 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle reaches into his wartrukk and flips the airbag switch and anyone in the bed can feel it rise a good couple inches
Dec 20 19:56:00 <Maddy> Atropa nods. "I love you."
Dec 20 19:56:06 <Gara> Emma looks down at the bed and frowns.
Dec 20 19:56:06 <Pemander> "Nobody's good, Myrtle."
Dec 20 19:56:11 <Pemander> "Some are just a lot better at pretending."
Dec 20 19:56:16 <Gara> That isn't normal.
Dec 20 19:56:21 <Echo> Scott gives her one more hug. "I love you too."
Dec 20 19:56:31 <dexandroid> "… No, they're not. But they can try."
Dec 20 19:56:34 <Echo> With that, he clambers up the ramp of the LAV, and straps into a jumpseat.
Dec 20 19:57:00 <PaulS_laptop> «Eels is good to go. You want lead, or you want us to?»
Dec 20 19:57:02 <Maddy> Atropa head into the SUV. «Anyone else coing with us, w're leaving now.» says Bou
Dec 20 19:57:33 <dexandroid> «Stay safe, Bou."
Dec 20 19:58:37 <Echo> «Yeah, Bou, watch out for your sister 'til we get back.»
Dec 20 19:58:48 <Pemander> «Bye, Boubabby.»
Dec 20 19:58:56 <Gara> «Seeya in a bit, guys.»
Dec 20 19:58:59 <PaulS_laptop> «Drive safe guys»
Dec 20 19:59:08 <Ragazzo> Arnold counts ammunition.
Dec 20 19:59:16 <Echo> Scott mashes the button to close the ramp on the LAV.
Dec 20 19:59:25 <Maddy> And the hummer heads out with people.
Dec 20 19:59:39 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle drops Eels into first
Dec 20 19:59:45 * WalrusKing (~PI.5241FB9E.F232B274.FF2FD4D9|niKsurlaW#PI.5241FB9E.F232B274.FF2FD4D9|niKsurlaW) has joined #afteraction
Dec 20 20:00:03 <Maddy> «Kyle, lets go side by. So whoevers on your weapon and on mine dont shoot eachother.
Dec 20 20:00:05 <Maddy> »
Dec 20 20:00:27 <Gara> "Yeah that'd pretty much fucking suck."
Dec 20 20:00:45 <PaulS_laptop> «Works for me. Emma, pump's on?»
Dec 20 20:00:56 <Gara> «I turned it on when I got on.»
Dec 20 20:01:07 <Pemander> "I'm not afraid to die," Ari quietly states. "But I really hope I don't die like a bitch."
Dec 20 20:01:07 <PaulS_laptop> «Kickass.»
Dec 20 20:02:05 <Echo> After a few moments of consideration, Scott unhooks his seat's harness and get up in the LAV's turret.

Dec 20 20:42:46 <dexandroid> The seeds, though the others will not know, simply fall on the ground, their source locked in combat miles away.
Dec 20 20:43:30 <PaulS_laptop> He aims for the doors
Dec 20 20:43:33 <Maddy> «Hold on to your asses guys» Elle says as Kyle goes through the door?
Dec 20 20:43:52 <PaulS_laptop> Indeed. Full ramming speed
Dec 20 20:44:05 <PaulS_laptop> Does he need to roll?

Dec 20 20:45:56 <Maddy> Elle SLAMMS ont he breaks, turning the LAV a 180, slams it into reves and hits the gas to the floor.
Dec 20 20:46:37 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle does his best to get the truck the hell out of the way as it makes it through. It's /probably/ a little worse for wear. Gotta love manual steering systems and solid shafts though!
Dec 20 20:47:27 <Echo> «SHIT. Are we going backward? Can you *drive* like that?»
Dec 20 20:47:31 <dexandroid> Myr braces herself, clinging to the mask.

Dec 20 20:47:51 <Pemander> Arianna lurches forward, her seatbelt preventing her from smashing into the dash.
Dec 20 20:47:57 <Maddy> Elle pops the smoke, and hits the entrance narroly missing EELS. «GO»
Dec 20 20:48:09 <Echo> Scott suddently remembers to grab the 240, He doesn't want it killing anyone flying around.
Dec 20 20:48:39 <Maddy> Elle starts squirming her way to the back compartment.
Dec 20 20:48:57 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle pats the dash of his battered truck and dismounts. It's still running.

Dec 20 20:50:21 <Gara> She grabs her arsenal, and hops out.
Dec 20 20:50:50 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle loads himself up. He's clearly kind of overtaxed. He's got the other 240 up
Dec 20 20:50:55 <Echo> Scott clambers out the back of the LAV, machine gun up.
Dec 20 20:50:59 <Echo> What do they see?
Dec 20 20:51:15 <Pemander> Arianna unbuckles and climbs out of Eels, looking a bit dizzy and shaking but none the worse for wear.
Dec 20 20:51:19 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte hops out of the LAV also, a bit shaky after that wild ride.
Dec 20 20:52:20 <Ragazzo> Arnold rubs his face, leaning against something.
Dec 20 20:52:33 <Echo> "Everyone in one piece?"
Dec 20 20:52:39 <Pemander> "I'm OK."

Dec 20 20:53:29 <dexandroid> "… We're cornered now, aren't we?"
Dec 20 20:53:49 <Gara> "I'm solid." She has a rocketlauncher over her shoulder, her shotgun across her chest, and is carrying her rifle.

Dec 20 20:54:17 <MonkeyBomb> <Where'd you learn to drive like that?>
Dec 20 20:54:22 <Pemander> "Maybe you should just go without them this one time."
Dec 20 20:54:33 <Maddy> "I didn't I just thought it would work."
Dec 20 20:54:37 <Maddy> "Good thing it did."
Dec 20 20:54:38 <MonkeyBomb> "…"

Dec 20 20:55:29 <Echo> "All right… So now…" Scott looks around to get an idea of their surroundings, clicking on his NVGs.

Dec 20 20:55:38 <Pemander> Ari snaps the glasses in half and tosses them away.
Dec 20 20:55:46 <Pemander> "Forward, left, left, down the elevator."
Dec 20 20:55:49 <Maddy> "Ok we gotta get down the the bottom." she looks at a floor plan on the wall. "It's not to far dow-" there loud banging outside, like something trying to ram past the LAV.
Dec 20 20:55:51 <Pemander> "Er, stairs. No power."
Dec 20 20:56:04 <Echo> "Holy shit, they're here already?"

Dec 20 20:56:51 <Pemander> "Come, little duckies!"
Dec 20 20:57:05 <Echo> He loads the can of ammo into the 240, racks the bolt, and runs, trying to keep up under all the weight.
Dec 20 20:57:10 <Maddy> Elle goes with.
Dec 20 20:57:18 <Pemander> Arianna makes a left when they come to a junction, hops up through a bashed security door, and then goes left again.
Dec 20 20:57:38 <dexandroid> "… You know your way around here?"
Dec 20 20:57:46 <Gara> Emma just follows her
Dec 20 20:57:53 <Gara> She's not going to question it.

Dec 20 21:24:00 <Echo> "Almost as good as me." For her, he pulls out the container Atropa gave him, snaps on a pair of gloves, and somewhat hesitantly slathers it on her back.
Dec 20 21:24:16 <dexandroid> Myr takes a deep breath, looking back the way they came.
Dec 20 21:24:20 <Pemander> Ari sharply inhales and bites down, trying not to scream.

Dec 20 21:25:13 <Echo> "I think."
Dec 20 21:25:59 <Pemander> "I want so badly to hurt you right now." She very carefully pulls her shirt back on.
Dec 20 21:26:04 <Pemander> "But it can wait."
Dec 20 21:26:28 <Echo> After capping the bottle, Scott shoves it down into a cargo pocket, then pulls his radio mic back up. «Elle, you need somebody with you.»

Dec 20 21:28:37 <Pemander> Ari starts walking forward again, toward storage. "Lets get moving."
Dec 20 21:28:41 <Pemander> "We're short on time."
Dec 20 21:29:15 <dexandroid> Myr nods, following, grimacing each step.
Dec 20 21:29:33 <Echo> Scott pops the door marked "Storage" and heads inside.

Dec 20 21:29:52 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte gets a move on, trying not to step in the oozing guts of the dead Daevites.

Dec 20 21:31:28 <Pemander> She pulls out a normal knife and starts spinning it anxiously.
Dec 20 21:31:30 <Maddy> There's only a single locker in the room, part open, a long dead Foundation worker on the ground.
Dec 20 21:32:31 <Gara> "I really hope there's a fifty in there."
Dec 20 21:32:32 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte stays near the doorway, listening for any signs of approaching enemies.
Dec 20 21:32:49 <PaulS_laptop> "I really hope it's the thing we're trying to destroy"
Dec 20 21:32:57 <PaulS_laptop> "And you've got a damn rocket launcher"
Dec 20 21:33:06 <Gara> "Yeah, and one rocket."
Dec 20 21:33:19 <dexandroid> "I think we'll be okay."
Dec 20 21:33:32 <dexandroid> She shakes her head, rubbing her eyes.
Dec 20 21:33:42 <PaulS_laptop> "And an ass ton of grenades on hand. Plus we've got a brick of C4 still"

Dec 20 21:34:08 <Echo> Scott moves up toward the thing, dropping the machine gun beside the locker.

Dec 20 21:35:47 <dexandroid> Myr looks to Ari. "… Well. So much for easy. Come on."
Dec 20 21:36:07 <Pemander> Ari sighs and taps her foot.
Dec 20 21:36:22 <Pemander> "Alright." She turns around and heads back toward Elle.
Dec 20 21:36:57 <Gara> Emma goes!
Dec 20 21:37:07 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle looks at Scott
Dec 20 21:37:10 <Maddy> When they get to her, she's standing outside the room, the booms outside getting louder, and there's a twisting sound of metal.
Dec 20 21:37:23 <dexandroid> "… K
Dec 20 21:37:33 <dexandroid> "Oh."***
Dec 20 21:37:49 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte is still with Kyle and Scott.
Dec 20 21:37:50 <Maddy> In the room, there's an explosion started…frozen in time.
Dec 20 21:37:56 <Echo> "What the fuck's goin-…"
Dec 20 21:38:01 <Gara> "……."
Dec 20 21:38:03 <Echo> Scott followed, we'll say.

Dec 20 21:38:15 <Echo> "What the hell is *that*?"
Dec 20 21:38:31 <Maddy> The book is there too floating in the air as if someone was throwing it away from the explosion.

Dec 20 21:39:03 <dexandroid> "… Really?"
Dec 20 21:39:14 <Echo> "Wait, so what the hell do we do?"

Dec 20 21:39:17 <Maddy> "I think it's deteriorating."
Dec 20 21:39:26 <dexandroid> Myr shakes her head, wiping her face.
Dec 20 21:39:27 <Gara> "Then we might want to leave"
Dec 20 21:39:27 <Echo> "What the fuck *is* all this?
Dec 20 21:39:29 <Gara> "Maybe?"
Dec 20 21:39:55 <Maddy> "Jut watch…" After a few seconds, the scene before them crawls forward a few seconds.
Dec 20 21:40:00 <dexandroid> "It probably wrote itself into a bubble. Save itself."
Dec 20 21:40:17 <Maddy> "If we can keep the daevite out if here…the book will be wrecked."
Dec 20 21:40:47 <PaulS_laptop> "And if the explosion keeps going, we're kinda dead"
Dec 20 21:40:47 <Echo> "… but what happens when the book gets wrecked?"
Dec 20 21:40:49 <Maddy> "I tried to push it towards the fire but." she pushes on it, its doesnt budge.
Dec 20 21:40:57 <Echo> "Is that explosion gonna go somewhere?"
Dec 20 21:41:04 <Pemander> Arianna stares at the book and the explosion.
Dec 20 21:41:09 <Ragazzo> "Well, can't we burn the book ourselves?"
Dec 20 21:41:09 <PaulS_laptop> "That's the thermobaric, ain't it?"
Dec 20 21:41:13 <Ragazzo> HELLO ARNOLD
Dec 20 21:41:16 <dexandroid> She shakes her head. "All around us. We'll burn."

Dec 20 21:41:23 <Maddy> "Yeah, if we're outside though…."
Dec 20 21:41:36 <Pemander> "Hold up. Think about this."
Dec 20 21:41:42 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle reaches down into his cargo pocket and produces the C4 charge
Dec 20 21:41:52 <dexandroid> "Ari can you move it? Mayb-"
Dec 20 21:42:02 <Pemander> Ari looks at the C4.
Dec 20 21:42:19 <PaulS_laptop> "It's gotta remote" Smile
Dec 20 21:42:45 <Maddy> "Either way, when this thing unfreezes, we want to not be here."
Dec 20 21:42:48 <Ragazzo> "Is there any reason we can't wait for the really slow explosion to destroy the book and then leave?"
Dec 20 21:42:56 <Maddy> "This means we gotta fight them out there."
Dec 20 21:42:56 <Gara> "Yes."
Dec 20 21:43:07 <Gara> "The book is what's making the explosion slow."
Dec 20 21:43:10 <PaulS_laptop> "This way we can decide when, and not have to wait for ages"
Dec 20 21:43:22 <dexandroid> "… Maybe it will think Arianna is one of them"
Dec 20 21:43:37 <dexandroid> "We can just… Take it. Kill it."
Dec 20 21:43:45 <Ragazzo> Arnold rubs the side of his head.
Dec 20 21:43:46 <Echo> "I don't think we want to set off explosives near this thing. That remote's got some limited range."
Dec 20 21:44:00 <Maddy> "We dont even know why its frozen, but it's not gonna hold."
Dec 20 21:44:07 <Maddy> "We cant just stand here."
Dec 20 21:45:01 <Echo> "So we just go, and try to hold out?"
Dec 20 21:45:05 <Echo> "Get out of here?"
Dec 20 21:45:11 <dexandroid> She nods, swallowing, taking her eyes off the explosion.
Dec 20 21:45:14 <Pemander> "Or we fix this now and deal with the consequences."
Dec 20 21:45:19 <MonkeyBomb> <Well, we might want to make a decision pretty soon…>Charlotte listens to the booming ruckus happening outside.
Dec 20 21:45:24 <Gara> "You mean die."
Dec 20 21:45:24 <Pemander> "I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to die like a bitch."
Dec 20 21:45:35 <Gara> "Yeah I'd really like the live."
Dec 20 21:45:38 <Pemander> Arianna walks forward and stands in front of the book.
Dec 20 21:45:44 <Ragazzo> "One of use could end this while the rest go."
Dec 20 21:45:49 <Ragazzo> "*us
Dec 20 21:45:53 <dexandroid> Myr watches, not moving.

Dec 20 21:46:22 <Pemander> She puts her hand on the book.
Dec 20 21:46:22 <Maddy> "We have to go." The scene moves forward again, the flames almost licking at the book now.
Dec 20 21:46:40 <Gara> Emma isn't sure if it's Elle, or Maddy speaking. "Then lets go."
Dec 20 21:47:14 <Echo> Scott takes off out of the room, hauling ass for the stairs.
Dec 20 21:47:20 <Gara> Emma runs.
Dec 20 21:47:24 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle heads out
Dec 20 21:47:31 <Pemander> "…is this the right thing to do, Myrtle? Go out there and fight?"
Dec 20 21:47:48 <Pemander> "We could just end this now."

Dec 20 21:48:15 <PaulS_laptop> "COME ON"
Dec 20 21:48:19 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte runs out, glancing at the others still near the book before sprinting as fast as she can.
Dec 20 21:48:20 <Pemander> Arianna sighs and turns away, then runs after the others.
Dec 20 21:48:27 <Pemander> "Let's go, Myr."
Dec 20 21:48:32 <Echo> Scott's abandoned the M240. His rifle's slung across his chest, bouncing wildly as he hits the landing.
Dec 20 21:48:35 <Ragazzo> Arnold stays by the door, watching for a moment, shrugs and heads off quickly.
Dec 20 21:48:40 <Ragazzo> Running now.
Dec 20 21:48:44 <dexandroid> "I don't know." Myr shakes her head, turning to follow. "I'll follow you."
Dec 20 21:48:49 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle still has his 240
Dec 20 21:49:20 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte catches up to the others.
Dec 20 21:49:32 <Maddy> Just as they get upstairs, a couple behemoths wrench the wrecked LAv out of the way. They roar and beat their chests.
Dec 20 21:49:34 <dexandroid> "We can do this. If they get here past us we lose. They'll take the book and run

Dec 20 21:52:43 <MonkeyBomb> As the dust from the launcher explosion settles, Charlotte braves a glance at the approaching army.

Dec 20 22:13:26 <dexandroid> She then steps forward, her skin flowing like ribbons, and sweeps her arm forward, an arc of flame lancing across the army's front line.
Dec 20 22:13:26 <PaulS_laptop> *ath to dodge?

Dec 20 22:14:56 <Maddy> Some of the creatures actually start to flee from Myrtle, many are caught in her inferno, and many more catch from thoes creatures. "Don't stop!" yells the General. "You will all be remade, don't stop!"
Dec 20 22:16:19 <Echo> As the temperature picks up, Scott peeks over the side, sees the thing that was Myrtle a minute ago, and ducks back down with a quickness.
Dec 20 22:16:24 <Maddy> Emma takes more down.
Dec 20 22:16:43 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle breaks and runs for the Truck
Dec 20 22:16:56 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte glances at Arnold then back at the General.
Dec 20 22:16:59 <dexandroid> The burning Myr shakes her head, strolling straight toward the army.
Dec 20 22:17:26 <Pemander> Arianna calls out, "Don't. Are you all just pawns? Where's your will?"
Dec 20 22:17:32 * Geothermal (~PI.1197EFEE.52A56BA2.709EFE44|amrehtoeG#PI.1197EFEE.52A56BA2.709EFE44|amrehtoeG) has joined #afteraction
Dec 20 22:17:46 <Pemander> She holds up one of her black hands, palm outward. "Are the Daevites just a wall of meat to be used?"
Dec 20 22:17:57 <Maddy> "Get back demon! We will have our book!"
Dec 20 22:18:23 <MonkeyBomb> ~No… You won't.~
Dec 20 22:18:26 <Pemander> "Is this the end of your /history/? Running forward like fodder to be cut down?"

Dec 20 22:21:23 <Maddy> "If you will not fight, I will use you." The general makes a motion, and several of the daevites start to melt, the others burned horribly in flames.
Dec 20 22:21:29 <Maddy> 4df+5 vs Kyle
Dec 20 22:21:30 <CROM> Maddy: vs Kyle: 6 (4df+5=-, 0, +, +)
Dec 20 22:22:00 <Maddy> Kyle hits him, but the melting army starts to reform on the general, and h begins to grow.
Dec 20 22:22:30 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte seizes her chance before it's too late. Summoning all the willpower she is mentally capable of, Charlotte focuses with all her might on the general.
Dec 20 22:22:48 <Gara> Is an Instant Kill valid againt the general.
Dec 20 22:23:01 <Maddy> let MonkeyBomb resolve his roll first
Dec 20 22:23:01 <MonkeyBomb> 4df+5 [Dominance -1 AP] Control is all she needs…..

Dec 20 22:23:10 <CROM> Maddy: -1 (4df=-, -, 0, +)
Dec 20 22:24:08 <Maddy> Suddenly there are hundreds of screaming voices in Charlottes head, only for a moment, they they are silenced by her presence in the General's mind.
Dec 20 22:24:23 <Maddy> You are basically in control of Kaneda from the end of Akira.
Dec 20 22:25:22 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte cringes, the connection painful. She focus all her willpower on forcing the General to stop everything… to just stand there, defenseless.
Dec 20 22:25:42 <Pemander> Arianna blinks and looks at Charlotte. "Kiddo, do you have him?!"
Dec 20 22:25:59 <MonkeyBomb> <DO IT NOW.>
Dec 20 22:26:06 <Gara> INSTANT KILL!
Dec 20 22:26:14 <Maddy> "I could have made you gods." he stands there.

Dec 20 22:26:29 <Gara> Emma runs at the General, burries the shotgun under his chin, and pulls the trigger!
Dec 20 22:26:31 <Pemander> "I think it's more fun to be a demon."
Dec 20 22:27:01 <dexandroid> Myr raises a hand. "Will you do the honours, Ari?"
Dec 20 22:27:05 <Pemander> shhhh

Dec 20 22:27:22 <Maddy> and no rolls
Dec 20 22:27:27 <Maddy> just do whatever you want man
Dec 20 22:27:42 <Pemander> Arianna runs forward and dives into the general.
Dec 20 22:27:51 <Echo> …
Dec 20 22:28:01 <Maddy> Ew but ok
Dec 20 22:28:07 <Gara> Emma stops.
Dec 20 22:28:11 <dexandroid> Myrtle raises her guns, burned and blackened, firing both upwards into the general's head
Dec 20 22:28:11 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte holds him there. She puts all her mindpower into keeping the connection from overwhelming her own mind.
Dec 20 22:28:12 <Gara> "What the fuck just happened."
Dec 20 22:28:20 <Echo> Scott watches this, his rifle fire at the small ones pausing as Ari dives.
Dec 20 22:28:32 <Gara> SHe shakes her head, and fires at the head with her electroshotty.
Dec 20 22:28:34 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle has the truck started. He wants to get the fuck out of there before the boom happens. This is the truck's melee. once Ari is into it. He hits the horn. It plays "Dixie" He's aiming to kneecap it.
Dec 20 22:28:49 <dexandroid> The bullets are wreathed in deep red flame, each planting itself in the bone with a searing shriek.
Dec 20 22:29:13 <Echo> Scott ducks again as the truck starts moving, loading his last mag into the rifle.
Dec 20 22:29:19 <Pemander> ~I'm a Daevite too.~
Dec 20 22:29:31 <Pemander> <Charlotte, can you hear me?>
Dec 20 22:29:45 <Pemander> There's a tiny voice inside the thousand shrieking voices of the General's mind.
Dec 20 22:29:49 <Maddy> ~You're a half breed~ oh god Charlotte you can hear them arguing.
Dec 20 22:30:03 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte is now kneeling on the ground, her eyes scrunched shut.
Dec 20 22:30:15 <Gara> Emma keeps firing.
Dec 20 22:30:22 <Maddy> Voices scream as the team starts tearing the general apart.
Dec 20 22:30:26 <MonkeyBomb> <Hurry…>
Dec 20 22:30:32 <Ragazzo> Arnold is also shooting the general.
Dec 20 22:30:40 <Pemander> ~I'm better. I don't need a book to write my history.~ <We need to push.>
Dec 20 22:31:10 <MonkeyBomb> <What?> Charlotte is confused.
Dec 20 22:31:16 <PaulS_laptop> The truck impacts.
Dec 20 22:31:24 <Maddy> Ari, it's getting hot in there.
Dec 20 22:31:36 <Maddy> The book's time stop is almost out
Dec 20 22:31:43 <MonkeyBomb> The strain of keeping the General motionless is beginning to wear on her mind…
Dec 20 22:31:48 <dexandroid> Myr raises her hands, a circle of flame burning around the General's head, like a crown. It spins, growing hotter and hotter.
Dec 20 22:31:54 <Pemander> <Push them down with me, and I'll keep him still.>
Dec 20 22:32:02 <Pemander> <Then get in the truck with everyone else and get out.>
Dec 20 22:32:12 <Echo> Scott's slammed into the cab of the truck as it crashes into the Daevite general.
Dec 20 22:32:17 <MonkeyBomb> <Okay…>
Dec 20 22:32:29 <MonkeyBomb> <I'll try. I don't know how much longer I can keep this up.>
Dec 20 22:32:58 <dexandroid> The flaming crown breaks, shattering into dozens of flares that drag across the generals body, singing great swathes of flesh to charcoal.
Dec 20 22:32:59 <Pemander> Arianna's mind rushes over and joins up with Charlotte's.
Dec 20 22:33:35 <Maddy> Elle runs and gets in the truck. She as there the whole time also shooting assholes
Dec 20 22:33:50 <Pemander> With a great effort, she takes her place pinning down the General. <I've got him. Go on.>
Dec 20 22:34:42 <Gara> Emma runs over and hops in the truck.
Dec 20 22:34:44 <MonkeyBomb> <Thank you…> Charlotte can feel herself about to pass out. She breaks the connection, beads of sweat running down her face.
Dec 20 22:34:58 <Maddy> "Where's Charlotte and Ari?"
Dec 20 22:35:27 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle throws the truck in reverse, backs it off the general, then throws it into forward once Charlotte is in. "Charlotte's still back there, Ari's in the thing"
Dec 20 22:35:43 <PaulS_laptop> "We gotta go!" back to charlotte
Dec 20 22:35:52 <Maddy> "What about Ari?"
Dec 20 22:35:59 <PaulS_laptop> "She's in the general!"
Dec 20 22:35:59 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte barely manages to pull herself onto the truck.
Dec 20 22:36:07 <Gara> Emma helps her in.
Dec 20 22:36:12 <Ragazzo> Arnold gets in the truck.
Dec 20 22:36:15 <Echo> Scott looks like someone just cracked him on the head with a baseball bat.
Dec 20 22:36:18 <dexandroid> Myrtle raises a hand, an arc of flame whipping out across the blighted field, blazing a path.
Dec 20 22:36:38 <Maddy> "What about Myrtle, she's kinda also on fire."
Dec 20 22:37:09 <PaulS_laptop> "EVERYBODY IN. COME ON, WE GOTTA /GO/ BEFORE IT BLOWS"
Dec 20 22:37:12 <Ragazzo> "Well, she's not dead yet, so maybe that's ok?"
Dec 20 22:37:20 <dexandroid> The air around her begins to shimmer and spark, and she raises another hand behind her; the upper floors of the Site beginning to ignite.
Dec 20 22:37:45 <Maddy> "Myrtle!"
Dec 20 22:37:52 <MonkeyBomb> <Ohhh, mannn…> Charlotte's voice is shaky.
Dec 20 22:38:49 <dexandroid> She stops, the flames around her ceasing, the air going cool.
Dec 20 22:39:19 <Maddy> "Get your ass over here, we have no idea what's gonna happen when the book burns."
Dec 20 22:39:33 <Echo> Scott's eyes suddenly clear. "GET IN THE GODDAMN TRUCK, MYRTLE."
Dec 20 22:40:26 <dexandroid> She looks to the Eve and starts slowly walking towards the truck, breaking into a run. She peels the mask off, her skin snapping back to her body, and shrouds, jumping bodily into the truck.
Dec 20 22:41:15 <PaulS_laptop> "CHARLOTTE COME ON"
Dec 20 22:41:19 <dexandroid> She hurls the mask out the window and breathes, looking around, out at the general. Oh.
Dec 20 22:41:24 <Echo> Charlotte's in.
Dec 20 22:41:24 <Maddy> Then…it happems.
Dec 20 22:41:36 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle goooooes
Dec 20 22:41:42 <Maddy> H.I.T.s - high-impulse thermobaric fuel-air explosive consists of a two-stage aerosol ignition which produces a blast wave of significantly greater power and duration than any other known explosive except nuclear. The vacuum-pressure effect ignites the oxygen between 5,000 and 6,000 degrees and is used when the greatest loss of life and damage to structures is desired. It sets the air on fire. No pain. An end to sorrow, grief, regret. Everything.
Dec 20 22:42:01 <Maddy> The group doesnt see it, since it's happening underground.
Dec 20 22:42:08 <Pemander> <I've decided.>
Dec 20 22:42:13 <Pemander> <Being a good guy…>
Dec 20 22:42:18 <Pemander> <…kinda sucks.>
Dec 20 22:43:08 <Maddy> But in a flash of white light, the Daevites burst into confetti.
Dec 20 22:43:17 <Maddy> For a moment…it looks like its snowing.
Dec 20 22:44:30 <Maddy> But instead of piling on the ground, the confetti turns to ash, the stench of the creatures is blown away on a breeze. Somewhere in India, China, California, thousands of people return from the dead.
Dec 20 22:45:02 <Maddy> One Dr.Kens finds himself still researching SCP-049 in a bunker in the asshole of the plant.
Dec 20 22:45:07 <Maddy> *planet
Dec 20 22:46:01 <Maddy> The book is gone.
Dec 20 22:46:37 <Echo> Scott peeks back over the tailgate as they drive away.
Dec 20 22:46:43 <Gara> Emma lays down.
Dec 20 22:46:55 <dexandroid> Myr wraps her arms around her knees, looking out, desperately hoping to see Arianna somewhere out there.
Dec 20 22:46:56 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte passes out from sheer exhaustion.
Dec 20 22:47:29 <PaulS_laptop> Kyle drives
Dec 20 22:47:40 <Echo> «Hey Kyle?»
Dec 20 22:47:47 <PaulS_laptop> «Yeah?»
Dec 20 22:47:56 <Echo> «Head for Utica.»
Dec 20 22:48:02 <PaulS_laptop> «Gotcha»
Dec 20 22:48:14 <PaulS_laptop> «Any sign of Ari back there?»
Dec 20 22:48:23 <dexandroid> Myr takes a radio, shrouded. «Ari»
Dec 20 22:48:26 <dexandroid> ?*
Dec 20 22:48:42 <Maddy> Oh one more thing! The stars.
Dec 20 22:48:42 <Gara> She takes off her night vision.
Dec 20 22:48:47 <Maddy> They look normal again.
Dec 20 22:48:56 <Maddy> There's the bid dipper and everything!
Dec 20 22:49:00 <PaulS_laptop> «Check out the sky»
Dec 20 22:49:21 <Pemander> No answer.
Dec 20 22:49:27 <Gara> She looks up at the stars.
Dec 20 22:49:36 <dexandroid> «Arianna did you die?»
Dec 20 22:52:55 <dexandroid> «… I'll see you later then. Night.»
Dec 20 22:54:48 <Maddy> They make it back to Utica and to the others waiting.
