Little Spirit/Strange Weather

(11:34:33 PM) Sabitsuki: «…Mr. Dodridge…»
(11:35:11 PM) Sabitsuki: It's a young child's voice.
(11:35:32 PM) E4D: «Station calling, identify yourself.»
(11:35:36 PM) Maddy: Alice looks at Jason.
(11:35:42 PM) Tox|Laptop: Vance looks down at his radio.'
(11:35:55 PM) Dr_Kens: Nydali twitched in her meditation. Her chest was uncomfortably warm.
(11:35:57 PM) DawnyWorks: Jillian turns her radio up. "One sec…"
(11:35:58 PM) E4D: «All stations, comm checks.» He drops the light gun, turning back for their room.
(11:36:17 PM) Maddy: "W-what's going on?" she follows.
(11:36:19 PM) DawnyWorks: «Cunningham, check»
(11:36:20 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Harding, answering.»
(11:36:24 PM) Dexanote: «Oi.»
(11:36:35 PM) Sabitsuki: «…Mr. Dodridge, gotta be quiet…Brother is watching.»
(11:36:48 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Who the bloody…?"
(11:37:03 PM) DawnyWorks: Jillian looks at the radio "What in the…"
(11:37:10 PM) E4D: Jason talks more quietly. «Who is this?»
(11:37:24 PM) Sabitsuki: «Ssssh. Iyo just wants to help.»
(11:37:42 PM) Dexanote: «Aha!»
(11:37:58 PM) Maddy: Alice looks at Jason. "T-the little goddess?"
(11:38:01 PM) Sabitsuki: «IS THE SCARECROW THERE»
(11:38:07 PM) Sabitsuki: «Ssssh!»
(11:38:09 PM) E4D: «Everyone, lock it the fuck up. Iyo, do you need help?»
(11:38:22 PM) DawnyWorks: "Lyo?" Jillian looks up to Geiers
(11:38:27 PM) Rights: Geier glances at her radio, but falls quiet.
(11:38:33 PM) E4D: «Everyone, lock it the fuck up. Iyo, do you need help?»
(11:38:36 PM) Flames: "Iyo?" Midnight says.
(11:38:47 PM) Flames: Midnight runs to find Jason.
(11:38:57 PM) Flames: 4df+4 I know you by your thoughts.
(11:38:57 PM) Quidmore: Flames: I know you by your thoughts.: 3 (4df+4=-, 0, -, +)
(11:39:13 PM) Maddy: Alice and Jason are just leaving the arcade, easy enough for Mid to find.
(11:39:28 PM) Sabitsuki: «Mr. Dodridge, Brother is outside and is thinking bad thoughts, please be careful…» The voice is barely a whisper.
(11:39:50 PM) Dr_Kens left the room (quit: Quit: sleep.).
(11:40:03 PM) E4D: «Outside where?»
(11:40:07 PM) Flames: Midnight runs up to Jason and Alice.
(11:40:10 PM) Dexanote: Shank is outside, already.
(11:40:19 PM) E4D: «Do you know where we are?»
(11:40:27 PM) Dexanote: He is on the roof. Note, he has a clockface.
(11:40:32 PM) Maddy: Alice makes a shhhh motion at Midnight when she spots her.
(11:40:44 PM) Sabitsuki: «I do! I lost Mr. Ori and Mrs. Ana and and and oh jeez»
(11:40:49 PM) Sabitsuki: Shank, perception
(11:40:52 PM) Tox|Laptop: Vance doesn't like the way this conversation is headed, and quickly and quietly makes his way outside.
(11:40:54 PM) Dexanote: 4df+2
(11:40:55 PM) Quidmore: Dexanote: 0 (4df+2=-, -, 0, 0)
(11:41:00 PM) Heiden: Heiden continues to patrol the halls.
(11:41:29 PM) Nioki: Alanoch stands in the arcade, watching and listening.
(11:41:32 PM) E4D: «Everyone, guns up, right goddamn now.» Jason breaks into a run backto his and Alice's room.
(11:41:35 PM) Sabitsuki: Shank can barely make out the familiar figure of a child's body hoisted by several sets of arms in the distance. It peers towards the hotel, unmoving.
(11:41:57 PM) Maddy: ~Midnight. She mentioned a brother. Is this the other half you spoke of?~ Alice is running after Jason.
(11:42:00 PM) DawnyWorks: Jillian grabs her rifle and runs outside
(11:42:04 PM) Dexanote: "Oi!" he shouts, waving. "Shikoku get ova here!"
(11:42:13 PM) Flames: Midnight follows, listening. ~It is. They share their body.~
(11:42:20 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Outside, guns ready.» Indeed, Vance's SCAR is leveled. At what? Nothing, for now. He looks at Shank. "Who?"
(11:42:28 PM) Dexanote: "Iyo I guess too, sure!"
(11:42:31 PM) Rights: Geier frowns, and goes to a window to peer around.
(11:42:51 PM) Maddy: "J-jason, Iyo and h-her brother s-share a body. I d-don't know how dangerous this is."
(11:42:53 PM) DawnyWorks: «Outside» Jillian puts her gun up, scaning the area
(11:43:03 PM) Sabitsuki: «Oh jeez - IYO SILENCE - no, fuck you - YOU WILL FOLLOW MY ORDERS NOW - fuck you jerkbag»
(11:43:41 PM) Nioki: Alanoch walks outside and turns a circle, scanning the horizon.
(11:43:44 PM) Maddy: "…t-that can't b-be good."
(11:43:49 PM) E4D: Jason throws his gear on as quickly as possible, holstering his Jericho and grabbing the ACR before sprinting to the entrance. «Lock the heavies down and get inside.»
(11:44:01 PM) Sabitsuki: 4df+5
(11:44:01 PM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: 7 (4df+5=0, +, +, 0)
(11:44:25 PM) Sabitsuki: Something comes flying towards Shank from the figure before it skitters off on the legs like a spider.
(11:44:47 PM) Maddy: ~Midnight? How bad is this?~
(11:44:54 PM) Dexanote: do i defend?
(11:45:11 PM) Flames: ~Not sure, yet. We'll find out.~
(11:45:13 PM) Sabitsuki: athletics to catch
(11:45:24 PM) Dexanote: 4df+3 Shank leaps to catch it!
(11:45:24 PM) Quidmore: Dexanote: Shank leaps to catch it!: 0 (4df+3=-, 0, -, -)
(11:45:37 PM) Dexanote: And stumbles off the fucking roof.
(11:45:38 PM) Maddy: Alice stays with Jason, having grabbed her shrike and her gear.
(11:45:39 PM) Dexanote: "FUCK."
(11:45:58 PM) Sabitsuki: It hits him in the clock and balls.
(11:46:10 PM) Sabitsuki: It skids to the hotel roof with a *squish*
(11:47:54 PM) E4D: «What the hell was *that*! Iyo? Shank! Report!»
(11:48:17 PM) Dexanote: Shank reattaches his head. «Dunno, lost me head.»
(11:48:18 PM) Flames: "Noisy, whatever it was."
(11:48:33 PM) Dexanote: He reaches and climbs back up the roof.
(11:49:19 PM) Sabitsuki: Shank's present is a human heart with a note attached to via a nail. The note says "BE READY SOON" on it.
(11:49:31 PM) Sabitsuki: The heart rattles, as if something was in it.
(11:49:48 PM) Dexanote: He pulls out some scissors and cuts the heart open.
(11:49:57 PM) Sabitsuki: 1d6 Eyeball Quality Index
(11:49:58 PM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: Eyeball Quality Index: 3 (1d6=3)
(11:50:09 PM) Dexanote: "Aha!"
(11:50:24 PM) Sabitsuki: Shank gets some pretty decent 'balls.
(11:50:46 PM) Dexanote: He sticks the heart in his chest and crumples the note, then hops down and walks to Jason, Alice and Midnight.
(11:50:56 PM) Maddy: Alice is at the ready, though not entirely sure what she's ready for.
(11:51:04 PM) PaulS_laptop: John rubs his eyes and wakes up sorta "what the fuck's going on?"
(11:51:07 PM) Dexanote: "Jus' threw a heart at me, no big deal."
(11:51:20 PM) Maddy: "N-not a threat t-then?"
(11:51:42 PM) Dexanote: "Not right now, no. Iyo's nice anyway, yor prolly fine if she shows up."
(11:51:48 PM) Dexanote: He spits these words
(11:51:57 PM) Maddy: "W-what about her b-brother?"
(11:52:01 PM) DawnyWorks: "What the fuck is a Lyo?"
(11:52:08 PM) Maddy: *Iyo
(11:52:44 PM) Maddy: "S-she's a l-little…s-spirit from Japan. C-complicated."
(11:52:49 PM) Nioki: Alanoch stands near the arcade. The space in front of him distorts as he watches their surroundings.
(11:52:56 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Iyo has a brother?"
(11:53:11 PM) Maddy: "T-they share a b-body, John."
(11:53:18 PM) DawnyWorks: Jillian sighs and grumbles something like 'stupid fucking religious shit'
(11:53:36 PM) Sabitsuki left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
(11:53:41 PM) Dexanote: "Yeh, Shikoku's tha cool one that gets babysat by Iyo."
(11:53:45 PM) Sabitsuki [moc.rr.ser.submuloc.20734F86-CRInys|tibbiM#moc.rr.ser.submuloc.20734F86-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(11:54:15 PM) Maddy: Alice heaves a sigh. "W-what did he w-want?"
(11:54:22 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Iyo bailed us out of Japan that one time we went to kill Wolf and Jason wouldn't let me deal with the cops"
(11:54:23 PM) Dexanote: "As we all 'eard, Shikoku ain't happy. But din't look like they were gonna come round."
(11:54:42 PM) Dexanote: "Uh? She did?"
(11:54:48 PM) Dexanote: "You guys know em?"
(11:55:02 PM) E4D: «Yeah, I was nice to her.»
(11:55:02 PM) Maddy: "I've n-never met her, b-but I heard the s-stories."
(11:55:10 PM) DawnyWorks: Jillian glances at Jason and lowers her rifle "Cigarette time?"
(11:56:01 PM) Dexanote: "I fought Shikoku once."
(11:56:33 PM) Dexanote: "Iyo followed me home. I wanted ta take her beautiful godlen eyes. Shikoku got annoyed."
(11:56:47 PM) E4D: "Please."
(11:56:50 PM) Flames: "That must have been an interesting time."
(11:56:54 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Yeah. We got a shortcut through hell"
(11:56:54 PM) PaulS_laptop: "this was a while ago"
(11:56:57 PM) Maddy: "M-mind if I tag along?"
(11:56:59 PM) Dexanote: He kinda tilts his head. "He invited me ta overthrow hell. Can't wait."
(11:57:51 PM) DawnyWorks: "I don't mind" Jillian takes out her pack and slings her rifle. She offers to everyone around.
(11:58:21 PM) Maddy: Alice is tempted but decides not to take one, content just to hang out.
(11:58:27 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Mind if I tag along? Hell was pleasantly cold"
(11:58:42 PM) Dexanote: "I dunno, ask him."
(11:58:53 PM) Dexanote: "We were gonna go an kill Japanese Satan or sommat."
(11:59:06 PM) Dexanote: "Er… Don' remember her name."
(11:59:11 PM) Dexanote: He shrugs.
(11:59:20 PM) E4D: Jason takes one and lights it with a match, puffing on it several times before passing it to Alice.
(11:59:23 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Izanami"
(12:00:00 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian lights one and takes a drag. "I fucking quit trying to understand this crap"
(12:00:13 AM) Maddy: She hesitates but then takes a drag before passing it back. "Y-you are a terrible influence."
(12:00:20 AM) Waxx: Dmitri and Misha take a stroll through the hallways to try and find everyone.
(12:00:31 AM) Dexanote: "Yeah that one."
(12:00:37 AM) Flames: "That's not a bad idea, Jill, but I wish that I could."
(12:01:28 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian adjusts her rifle and sighs "I think I'm going to take a walk, that okay boss?" she looks up at Jason
(12:01:35 AM) E4D: "Hey, I never said I was perfect."
(12:01:56 AM) Waxx: Dmitri's arms are clasped behind his back; Misha's bad arm rests at his side.
(12:02:10 AM) Maddy: She grins at him. She doesn't have to say anything, he knows what she's thinking.
(12:02:15 AM) Waxx: [Misha. Tell me what you think of that girl.] […Kommandir? What do you mean?]
(12:02:35 AM) Waxx: Dmitri scowls and looks ahead as they walk together. [You obviously have feelings for her, Misha.]
(12:02:55 AM) Maddy: And if Midnight is being nosey, I guess she knows too!
(12:03:10 AM) Waxx: Misha pauses for a moment, choosing his words carefully. [I am only looking for friendship, Kommandir.]
(12:04:28 AM) E4D: «Shank? Could you find me down at the entrance?»
(12:04:44 AM) Dexanote: «I'm right over here.»
(12:04:51 AM) DawnyWorks: "Boss?" Jillian takes another drag "Jason?"
(12:04:51 AM) Dexanote: He waves.
(12:04:56 AM) Dexanote: And walks over.
(12:05:09 AM) E4D: "Oh. What happened?"
(12:05:33 AM) DawnyWorks: "I asked if it was cleared for me to go for a walk"
(12:06:20 AM) Waxx: [Misha, I will be honest. I do not know how long we can stay with these people.] [You mean we will be leaving them? Why?]
(12:06:44 AM) E4D: "Was talking to Shank, but no. Nobody's going off on their own until we know what that was about."
(12:06:52 AM) Waxx: [The why is not important. You only need to understand that something this good cannot last forever."
(12:06:55 AM) Waxx: ]
(12:07:09 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian sighs and goes inside "Fine"
(12:07:35 AM) Dexanote: "Akay. What happened where?"
(12:08:07 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian heads back to her room and starts to study again.
(12:08:10 AM) Waxx: […I do not understand, Kommandir. I have been your lieutenant for years now, you have never kept anything of that importance from me before. Why do you start now?]
(12:09:27 AM) Waxx: [Misha, this is not as simple. It is not a matter of military science, it is not something you can weigh on paper and make decision from. It is just something you will learn, in time. A gut feeling that you will trust.]
(12:09:59 AM) Laito left the room (quit: Quit: Leaving.).
(12:10:03 AM) Laito [~ten.labolgcbs.ligchc.lsd.FFC2EC84-CRInys|sirhc#ten.labolgcbs.ligchc.lsd.FFC2EC84-CRInys|sirhc] entered the room.
(12:10:48 AM) Dexanote: shank is talking to Jason
(12:10:59 AM) Nioki: Alanoch walks over to Jason, lighting the space ahead of him with a single bright thread.
(12:11:13 AM) E4D: "Here. What happened up top?"
(12:11:39 AM) Dexanote: "Shokoku threw a heart full of eyeballs at me."
(12:11:47 AM) Dexanote: "'e does that."
(12:12:05 AM) E4D: He nods at Al as he approaches. "Hey, kid."
(12:12:10 AM) Waxx: After staying quiet for a few minutes, Misha finally speaks up. […What would you have me do, then?]
(12:12:19 AM) Waxx: [Break it off immediately, for your own sake.]
(12:12:34 AM) Nioki: "If I go to the roof, I can light up everything around here."
(12:12:49 AM) Nioki: "If you want to find them."
(12:13:04 AM) E4D: "Go for it, Al."
(12:13:26 AM) Nioki: "Is there anyone else who can help look?"
(12:13:50 AM) Nioki: "If I'm focusing on that, I can't really focus on anything else."
(12:13:54 AM) Maddy: "S-so Iyo and h-he bro, s-showed up to g-give you eyeballs…t-tehn left?"
(12:13:58 AM) Waxx: [Kommandir, why? Why do I have to do that? She is a friend.]
(12:14:07 AM) Tox|Laptop: "I'll help." Vance nods and raises his hand.
(12:14:19 AM) Waxx: Dmitri growls back, [She is an object of lust and nothing more to you.]
(12:14:26 AM) E4D: «Vance?»
(12:14:43 AM) Dexanote: "Yeh. We're two of a kind, see. Though his sis babysits him so 'e dosn't get up to mischief."
(12:14:53 AM) Nioki: "Someone with really, really good eyesight would be best."
(12:15:07 AM) Heiden left the room (quit: Broken pipe).
(12:15:15 AM) Nioki: "It's going to be a bit… weird where I am."
(12:15:15 AM) E4D: "Hell, I'll come up."
(12:15:58 AM) Rights: 4df+1 yep totally just been following you guys around, evesdropping despite barely knowing russian.
(12:15:58 AM) Quidmore: Rights: yep totally just been following you guys around, evesdropping despite barely knowing russian.: 1 (4df+1=0, -, +, 0)
(12:16:13 AM) Maddy: "C-can I come? K-keep you company?
(12:16:14 AM) Waxx: […That is a very hurtful thing to say, Kommandir. It is a good thing Mrs. Karen is not here to hear you say that.]
(12:16:18 AM) Flames: Midnight follows Jason, because, why not?
(12:16:24 AM) Dexanote: Shank as well, sure.
(12:16:25 AM) E4D: "That's fine."
(12:16:35 AM) Dexanote: He's leaking a bit of blood down his branches
(12:16:36 AM) Nioki: Alanoch walks towards the stairs to the roof.
(12:16:48 AM) Waxx: Dmtiri glares at him. [Yes, Misha. It is a good thing she is not.] Misha instantly regrets his choice of words!
(12:16:55 AM) E4D: Geier understands *nothing*.
(12:17:07 AM) Maddy: Alice shudders and follows Jason and Alanoch
(12:17:22 AM) E4D: She actually thinks they're talking about the film Cannibal Holocause from the context she detects.
(12:17:23 AM) Tox|Laptop: «Yeah?»
(12:17:31 AM) E4D: *caust
(12:17:34 AM) Waxx: After that, they don't say much.
(12:17:37 AM) Nioki: "If the light hits you. don't bother shutting your eyes. It'll go right behind your eyelids."
(12:17:37 AM) Rights: She tries, though. If all for naught, but because she's not retarded she can at least pick up on tone and body language cues.
(12:17:46 AM) Rights: and the occasional name.
(12:17:58 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance is right there with 'em.
(12:18:05 AM) Rights: "…ahem." Geier clears her throat, after they seem to be silent for a bit.
(12:18:20 AM) Waxx: Dmitri whirls around, looking very upset!
(12:18:42 AM) Nioki: Alanoch reaches the roof, and stands there. He turns a slow circle, looking at the surrounding desert.
(12:18:58 AM) Nioki: 4df+4 Perception maneuver to boost illusion.
(12:18:58 AM) Quidmore: Nioki: Perception maneuver to boost illusion.: 2 (4df+4=-, 0, -, 0)
(12:19:02 AM) Rights: Geier stand there, looking very calm, arms crossed behind her back. "…Don't worry, I still dont' know russian."
(12:19:10 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance is there, looking around as well.
(12:19:44 AM) Waxx: Dmitri's eye twitches. "Well I am happy that you can still get enjoyment from eavesdropping on my conversations, Doktor."
(12:20:18 AM) Flames: 4df+4 Looking around with Jason.
(12:20:18 AM) Quidmore: Flames: Looking around with Jason.: 2 (4df+4=-, 0, -, 0)
(12:20:28 AM) Nioki: He frowns. This will be bigger than anything he's done before.
(12:20:48 AM) E4D: 4df+4 thermal optic, boosting perception
(12:20:48 AM) Quidmore: E4D: thermal optic, boosting perception: 6 (4df+4=0, +, 0, +)

(12:21:12 AM) Quidmore: E4D: Fuck, I don't even *need* light.: 8 (4df+6=+, 0, +, 0)
(12:21:15 AM) Nioki: Threads of darkness begin to spill off him as he turns.
(12:21:26 AM) E4D: Does Jason see anything?
(12:21:27 AM) Rights: "That's good. I'm sorry."
(12:21:41 AM) Nioki: 4df+6 Tagging mind over matter for Illusion.
(12:21:41 AM) Quidmore: Nioki: Tagging mind over matter for Illusion.: 8 (4df+6=+, 0, +, 0)
(12:22:04 AM) Maddy: Alice is just keeping company, humming that same song.
(12:22:05 AM) Dexanote: Good god.
(12:22:09 AM) Dexanote: It's like a stadium.
(12:22:10 AM) Heiden [ten.htuoslleb.mem.6AD1EBD4-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.htuoslleb.mem.6AD1EBD4-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(12:22:10 AM) mode (+o Heiden) by ChanServ
(12:22:33 AM) Waxx: Dmitri stiffens his back and looks at Geier; Misha doesn't turn around. "Well, Doktor?"
(12:22:58 AM) Nioki: Threads of light appear, winking into existence like threaded stars floating in the air.
(12:23:15 AM) Rights: "…/but/ I wanted to ask you something. About the boy." She glances at Misha, but doesn't use his name.
(12:23:49 AM) Nioki: A good mile around the camp is brightly illuminated as the threads slowly drift through space.
(12:24:00 AM) Waxx: He seems taken off guard momentarily. After a moment, he motions for Misha to move along a few paces down the hallway so they can speak privately.
(12:24:03 AM) Tox|Laptop: "Holy shit….it's bright as fucking day."
(12:24:08 AM) Dexanote: "Whoa fuck."
(12:24:11 AM) Sabitsuki: There's a figure, pretty far off…what looks like a child's body held up by the many arms of a skeleton. Jason will recognize the body as Iyo, in her familiar get up. Tears stream down her face even as it hisses slightly at the light and moves off on the limbs.
(12:24:18 AM) DawnyWorks left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(12:24:23 AM) Sabitsuki: To thermals, the body is completely cold.
(12:24:31 AM) Rights: Geier waits, then sighs. "Dmitri, it's not like he can understand us."
(12:24:32 AM) Dexanote: "Ya want me ta run afta them?"
(12:24:58 AM) Nioki: Alanoch keeps slowly turning, his eyes watering and a thin trickle of blood running from his nose.
(12:25:08 AM) Waxx: "He is not stupid."
(12:25:26 AM) Rights: "True enough."
(12:25:41 AM) E4D: "Negative. We do not pursue."
(12:25:54 AM) Maddy: "A-alanoch, h-hey, you ok?" she looks at Jason. "C-can he stop?"
(12:25:57 AM) Rights: "Which is also why you can't expect him to listen when you tell him to not be so much as friends with Jillian."
(12:25:59 AM) Dexanote: "… Right."
(12:26:19 AM) Waxx: "He is bound by his duty. I will make him listen if I have to."
(12:26:38 AM) E4D: Jason lowers the rifle, glancing over at Al. "Holy shit, kid…" he steps over, shaking his shoulder.
(12:26:43 AM) Nioki: Threads of darkness orbit him, forming a thick swarm. It's getting hard to see him.
(12:26:50 AM) Tox|Laptop: "Jesus, Al!"
(12:26:51 AM) Rights: "…Can I make some largely unfounded assumptions?" Geier crosses her arms.
(12:26:57 AM) Tox|Laptop: Vance looks over.
(12:27:09 AM) Maddy: "Y-you can stop."
(12:27:25 AM) Nioki: Alanoch shakes as Jason touches him, and the threads begin to fade.
(12:27:25 AM) Maddy: "W-we found what w-we were looking for." Alice sounds a little worried.
(12:27:48 AM) Waxx: Dmitri pauses to light a cigarette; it helps to calm his nerves a bit.
(12:27:52 AM) Waxx: "…go on, then."
(12:28:10 AM) Maddy: "S-someone get him a t-tissue."
(12:28:21 AM) Nioki: He blinks several times, and wipes his nose on his sleeve.
(12:28:59 AM) Nioki: "D-did you f-f-find the-?"
(12:29:38 AM) Maddy: Alice nods. "Y-you h-helped a-a lot…are you f-feeling ok?"
(12:29:46 AM) Tox|Laptop: "Yeah, we saw it. But they moved off. You okay, kid?"
(12:30:23 AM) Rights: "I think you're trying very, very hard to protect him. And that's good, because I can see it brings out a…weird mixture of the father in you, and the insane militaristic survivalist. The latter part is the one that bothers me, because I'm starting to think that this…vehement insistence on avoiding a relationship, for him, has more to do with what you've..
(12:30:39 AM) Nioki: "I'll be f-fine."
(12:31:01 AM) Maddy: "Ok, b-but don't h-hurt yourself, ok?"
(12:31:41 AM) Rights: …been through. Look, we've all lost people, hell, I'm willing to bet we lost most of the /world/…but if this is really hitting you /that/ hard, maybe we need to all step back and let you recover. You can't be expected to make good decisions when you're in shock, from multiple things in my own opinion."
(12:32:17 AM) Nioki: "I don't really have a choice there. It's not so bad."
(12:32:48 AM) Waxx: Dmitri brings the cigarette to his lips for a quick drag, the slightest tremor visible in his hands.
(12:32:50 AM) Maddy: "You always h-have a choice. D-don't do it if it h-hurts."
(12:32:52 AM) Rights: "…You're going to hurt him, because…maybe because you really do feel, right now, like any sort of relationship is nothing but pain, or maybe because right now you can't disassociate a physical relationship from having to kill the people you worked with becuase of what happened to /them/, or maybe it's just because you honestly just don't want him to be..
(12:32:53 AM) Nioki: He blows his nose, darkening his sleeve with blood.
(12:33:14 AM) Nioki: "I don't mind that much. I'm used to it."
(12:33:25 AM) Maddy: "…i-if you're sure."
(12:33:28 AM) Rights: …distracted if he has to make the same choices….but he's not stupid, like you said." She inhales, through her nose. "…and he's going to need to find comfort where he can get it, here, becuase there's not a lot to go around."
(12:33:54 AM) Rights: "…That's about it. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of things I want to say, but…that's all that I really think you should know, for now."
(12:33:57 AM) Rights: "…If you wanna punch me in the nose, I'll just…go…."
(12:34:42 AM) Waxx: Dmitri grunts, a bit disarmed by her frankness.
(12:35:27 AM) Rights: "I'd give you a free shot, but I'm worried my nose might fall off."
(12:35:54 AM) Maddy: Alice sits next to Jason and looks up at the stars again.
(12:36:06 AM) Waxx: "You remind me very much of Aleks, you know."
(12:36:14 AM) Rights: "…He's rubbing off on me."
(12:36:25 AM) Nioki: "What were they?"
(12:37:24 AM) Maddy: "It's c-complicated. T-they're like…s-spirits."
(12:37:29 AM) E4D: Jason removes the magazine from his rifle, ejects the chambered round, wipes it off and reinserts it, and bangs the mag against the rifle before dropping it bag into the pouch on the buttstock.
(12:39:11 AM) Waxx: "What would you have me do then, Doktor. Hm?"
(12:39:19 AM) Waxx: "Just…just cast him free with no guidance?"
(12:40:23 AM) Nioki: "Okay. They don't know what I can do. That makes it easier to trick them."
(12:41:55 AM) Rights left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(12:44:10 AM) E4D: Jason gets up, stretching. "Time to get this gear off."
(12:44:52 AM) Maddy: Alice gets up as well. "P-probably a g-good idea."
(12:44:58 AM) Sabitsuki: The sky overhead is overcast, and the moon tries in vain to shine through what are obviously storm clouds.
(12:45:14 AM) Maddy: "L-looks like rain."
(12:45:15 AM) E4D: "Looks like good timing anyway."
(12:45:25 AM) Dexanote: "Ah, I love rain…"
(12:45:30 AM) Dexanote: Shank looks up.
(12:45:44 AM) Sabitsuki: *drip*
(12:45:56 AM) Maddy: She takes one of Jason's hands in hers, heading inside.
(12:46:07 AM) Sabitsuki: *dripdrip*dripdripdrip*dripdrip**drip*drip*
(12:46:11 AM) Sabitsuki: It rains.
(12:46:36 AM) Dexanote: "Aha…"
(12:46:39 AM) Rights [PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|tibbiM#PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|tibbiM] entered the room.
(12:46:47 AM) Sabitsuki: Wait, that's not rain.
(12:46:50 AM) Sabitsuki: Perception, Shank.
(12:47:01 AM) Dexanote: 4df+2 "… wait."
(12:47:01 AM) Quidmore: Dexanote: "… wait.": 3 (4df+2=+, 0, +, -)
(12:47:31 AM) Sabitsuki: Shank might recognize liquid human fat, given how often he's seen the insides of people.
(12:47:56 AM) Dexanote: "… What. The. FUCK."
(12:47:56 AM) Nioki: Alanoch is on the roof, watching the sky.
(12:48:17 AM) Laito: Artemis silently reveres Tau's simple gesture for as long as it lasts. However, he brea(k)s the touch so he can stand and close the window.
(12:48:24 AM) Dexanote: He backs up and slips in a puddle. "FUCK."
(12:48:33 AM) Sabitsuki: Tau has clearly passed out, snoring lightly.
(12:48:59 AM) Rights: "No…I would have you try to guide him to be a better person."
(12:49:00 AM) Rights: "He's too young to be unhappy. Leave the tears and bitterness for us old farts."
(12:49:03 AM) Dexanote: Shank tries to pull himself to hsi feet, and drags himself to the door. Inside, finally. He slips on his face.
(12:49:07 AM) Maddy: "W-what's up, Shank?" Alice had dragged Jason inside just before it started to rain.
(12:49:17 AM) Dexanote: «IT'S RAINING FAT.»
(12:49:27 AM) Dexanote: "HUMAN FUCKIN' FAT."
(12:49:36 AM) Maddy: "What."
(12:49:38 AM) Dexanote: "WHAT THE FUCK."
(12:49:49 AM) Nioki: Alanoch walks inside, being careful not to slip.
(12:49:57 AM) Dexanote: He flicks an arm at her, whipping a gob of it at Alice.
(12:50:08 AM) Nioki: "I've never seen rain before. I didn't think it was like this."
(12:50:09 AM) Maddy: "Eeeuuugh!"
(12:50:22 AM) Maddy: Alice flails!
(12:50:27 AM) DawnyWorks [moc.noehtyar.F97808E5-CRInys|tibbiM#moc.noehtyar.F97808E5-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(12:50:38 AM) Dexanote: "FUCK. FUCK. FUCK."
(12:50:45 AM) Nioki: He seems confused by their reactions.
(12:50:59 AM) E4D: 4df+4 Punch the fuck out of Shank's head.'
(12:51:00 AM) Quidmore: E4D: Punch the fuck out of Shank's head.': 3 (4df+4=-, 0, -, +)
(12:51:01 AM) Doctor_Light: Birdman sticks his head through- no, he literally sticks his head through- a window from one of the farther back rooms of the hotels.
(12:51:03 AM) Waxx: Dmitri stubs his cigarette out on the wall next to him.
(12:51:07 AM) Maddy: "Y-yeah, r-rain is suposed to be w-water."
(12:51:08 AM) Doctor_Light: "Crawaawaa?" He calls.
(12:51:12 AM) Waxx: "…I will take your suggestions into consideration, Doktor."
(12:51:31 AM) Nioki: "…So that's not rain?"
(12:51:44 AM) Nioki: Alanoch was just standing in it. That most likely shows.
(12:51:51 AM) Maddy: "Not a-any rain I've seen."
(12:51:57 AM) E4D: Wait, disregard, he wasn't throwing it at her.
(12:52:16 AM) Maddy: "J-jason, I n-need to shower."
(12:52:20 AM) Rights: "…Jillian's going to give him a russian-english dictionary. I want you to let him have it."
(12:52:23 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian sits in her room, still studding
(12:52:27 AM) Rights: "Not just because it will let /them/ communicate."
(12:52:55 AM) Maddy: «N-notice to anyone w-who can hear m-me. It's r-raining human f-fat outside. D-don't go out there."
(12:52:57 AM) Maddy: »
(12:53:01 AM) Rights: "But because it will make him a better part of this group, and any other group he may have to deal with. If he knows at least basic english, then we don't have to rely upon you to translate, if something were to happen to you, or to him."
(12:53:03 AM) Nioki: Alanoch spits out.
(12:53:13 AM) Rights: "And he deserves at least the chance to function, if something happens to you."
(12:53:16 AM) Waxx: "You are doing this behind my back, Doktor."
(12:53:19 AM) Waxx: Oh, Dmitri.
(12:53:26 AM) Nioki: "Um. I think. I think I'd like some clean clothes. Are there any here?"
(12:53:40 AM) DawnyWorks: «Rog» Jillian doesn't even want to know
(12:53:45 AM) Rights: "No, I'm saying it to your face. I'm asking, even."
(12:53:45 AM) Dexanote: Shank is schlopping fat everywhere, trying to get it off. Think Bill Murray from Ghostbusters, with the ectoplasm right at the beginning
(12:53:47 AM) E4D: "Got a gift shop, Al."
(12:54:14 AM) Nioki: He walks off as quickly as he can without tripping.
(12:54:27 AM) Maddy: Alice shudders.
(12:54:36 AM) Maddy: "I'm g-going to shower."
(12:54:39 AM) Waxx: "You are doing this to try and…to try and -engineer- his relationship. That is all."
(12:54:42 AM) Doctor_Light: Birdman does not hear this, not having a radio, and climbs out the window to investigate. He tastes a little of the stuff off his arm- oh, weird.
(12:55:06 AM) Dexanote: "Aw fuck me chain's all gummy."
(12:55:09 AM) Bright is now known as JoeyDrood
(12:55:13 AM) Dexanote: "An me head too."
(12:55:24 AM) Rights: "No. I'm trying to get you to let it develop naturally."
(12:55:41 AM) E4D: "Coming with. Get the dirty clothes and I'll take 'em off to wash."
(12:55:53 AM) Maddy: "R-right." she heads back to their room.
(12:56:04 AM) Rights: "Be pissed with me if you want, you can do /whatever you want/ for now…but don't come crying to me when he bites back for what he wants."
(12:56:17 AM) E4D: "I'll snatch some shit out the gift shop we can wear. Jeans and a Tee probably wouldn't be too bad."
(12:56:28 AM) Rights: "I guess that means I'm not asking you. I'm warning you…this is what will be better for you. Not that you ever listen to me."
(12:57:10 AM) Maddy: She steps into the bathroom, ditching the fatty clothes. "I-interesting honeymoon, eh?" she chuckles.
(12:57:23 AM) Waxx: Dmitri stiffens and straightens his back.
(12:57:39 AM) Waxx: "Thank you for this talk, Doktor. Good evening." Dmitri turns and walks away briskly.
(12:58:03 AM) Rights: "…Be glad I only said what I had to, not what I wanted to, Dmitri." Geier calls after him, gently. "Becauce would've hated to see you go truely mad."
(12:58:53 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian sits in the hallway outside of her room, smoking and reading
(12:59:03 AM) Waxx: Dmitri knows she's right, but his wall is too strong. He walks away from her to avoid having to confront his own issues and rejoins Misha, who is waiting patiently.
(12:59:41 AM) Waxx: Without preamble, [They are giving you a dictionary. I guess now even -you- no longer need me.] Misha seems a little stunned.
(1:00:13 AM) Dexanote: Shank goes around the hotel, kicking in doors to find pieces of plants to make a new body with
(1:00:25 AM) Rights: 4df [I'm sorry!] Geier tries to say after him.
(1:00:26 AM) Quidmore: Rights: [I'm sorry!] Geier tries to say after him.: 0 (4df=-, +, 0, 0)
(1:00:34 AM) Rights: "Fuck, I am terrible at Russian."
(1:00:41 AM) Rights: She leaves.
(1:01:04 AM) Nioki: Alanoch picks out a "Desert Cave Hotel" shirt and a pair of jeans that would have been unfairly expensive if he had to pay. He walks to a shower to wash off the fat.
(1:01:51 AM) Doctor_Light: Birdman looks around, and crawls back in the window into the hotel, and walks back into the hallways. Oh god, he smells terrible and is covered in fat.
(1:02:13 AM) Laito: Alex is just inside the front doors of the lobby, watching the fat rain.
(1:02:43 AM) Rights: Geier cringes as she walks past birdman. "Jesus christ, birdman."
(1:02:44 AM) Waxx: Misha literally can't think of anything to say, so he excuses himself and returns to the suite.
(1:02:53 AM) Rights: "You smell like the inside of a meat puppet."
(1:04:07 AM) Doctor_Light: "Hrr?"
(1:04:19 AM) Doctor_Light: "Will, will remove. Once find stream."
(1:04:26 AM) Doctor_Light: It makes a… sheepish noise?
(1:04:28 AM) Rights: "…Do you know how to use a bath?"
(1:04:33 AM) Rights: Geier snorts.
(1:04:37 AM) Rights: "Like, a shower or something?"
(1:05:15 AM) Doctor_Light: "What?"
(1:05:38 AM) DawnyWorks: 4df Jillian practices
(1:05:38 AM) Quidmore: DawnyWorks: Jillian practices: 0 (4df=-, 0, +, 0)
(1:05:51 AM) E4D: She actually know less than when she started.
(1:05:56 AM) Waxx: Dmitri busies himself by walking along without purpose, his mind working end over end to try and figure out some way of resolving the situation without addressing his own problems.
(1:06:26 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian growls and trows the book at the wall "Fuck fuck! FUCK!"
(1:06:45 AM) Rights: "…Come with me." Geier sighs. "Just so that you stop tracking fat everywhere…"
(1:07:28 AM) Rights: SHe heads off for a nearby room, to teach Birdman the MAGIC OF SHOWERS. "Birds like dripping water, right?"
(1:07:54 AM) DawnyWorks: throws, rather
(1:08:23 AM) Dexanote: Shank dumps his sticks and stuff in a pile in the corner. Mostly, they're houseplants that he's hacked to pieces or peeled apart. He goes about assembling them
(1:08:37 AM) Flames: Midnight goes looking for Dusty. This would be a *very* bad time for his combustion to start.
(1:08:49 AM) Doctor_Light: He pauses and shakes his feet off, making them slightly bigger in the process, and continues following Geier obediently. "Mm… Saw waterfall once, going into ocean. Was very good."
(1:09:05 AM) Ragazzo: Dusty is in a room somewhere.
(1:09:21 AM) Ragazzo: Not hard to follow the scent, probably.
(1:09:34 AM) Rights: Geier starts the shower. "Here we go…see this handle?"
(1:09:41 AM) DawnyWorks: "Fucking useles…*Useless*"
(1:09:54 AM) Rights: "If you turn it this way, the water gets hot- it'll get burning hot, if you let it. If you turn it this way…it'll get cold."
(1:11:25 AM) Flames: "Dusty?" Midnight comes to his room, and opens his door.
(1:12:03 AM) Waxx: Dmitri reaches the end of a long hall, with a window. He rests his palms on the glass and looks outside into the darkness.
(1:12:05 AM) DawnyWorks: «I'm making some god damn tea, who wants some fucking tea?» Jillian storms of to the kitchen area
(1:12:08 AM) Doctor_Light: "Is neutral in middle?" He tests this, and nods affirmingly. "…/Exactly/ like waterfall!" It chirrups excitedly.
(1:12:14 AM) Ragazzo: "Oh. Hello Midnight."
(1:12:19 AM) Rights: "See!"
(1:12:22 AM) Rights: "Now you can wash off easy."
(1:12:29 AM) Ragazzo: Dusty sets aside a picture. "How are you?"
(1:12:37 AM) Rights: «Fucking tea sounds kinda strong. I'll take regular tea.»
(1:12:58 AM) DawnyWorks: A low growl emits over the radio
(1:13:03 AM) Doctor_Light: "Did not know existed. …Clever people."
(1:13:12 AM) Waxx: Dmitri turns his radio off.
(1:13:39 AM) Laito: Alex stands behind the front doors, hands clasped behind his back, as if her were the mastermind behind the fat storm and was watching his vile work unfold.
(1:13:57 AM) Laito is now known as Laito-brb
(1:13:59 AM) Rights: "Indeed." Geier shrugs. "If you want, you can even turn it into a bath."
(1:14:08 AM) Sabitsuki: Tau is passed out by the window of the clicker room, sitting on the floor as her head lulls to one side.
(1:14:34 AM) DawnyWorks: «I'm not fucking delivering» Jillian makes some god damn tea and sets mugs out in the cafe
(1:14:41 AM) Doctor_Light: It clucks. "Where does water go?"
(1:15:04 AM) Nioki: Alanoch steps out of his room, having lost considerable fat and gained some new clothes.
(1:15:16 AM) Rights: "Down the drain. I'm not sure."
(1:15:20 AM) Rights: "It magically disappears."
(1:16:18 AM) Doctor_Light: "Oh." It nods, crouching and poking its beak at the drain.
(1:16:53 AM) Rights: "Well, no, it doesn't. I think it goes to a place, and then that place cleans it, then it goe sinto the ground."
(1:17:07 AM) Rights: "I'm not sure." Geier shrugs. She's honestly just hanging around because birdman doesn't judge.
(1:18:38 AM) Doctor_Light: "Oh, o-k." He shrugs his shoulders. "All people have these?"
(1:18:49 AM) Doctor_Light: "Were not in forest, but neither were many things."
(1:19:07 AM) Rights: "Not all people. Lots of people, though, in civilized countries."
(1:19:51 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian sighs and lights another cigarette.
(1:20:41 AM) JoeyDrood is now known as Bright
(1:21:39 AM) Laito-brb is now known as Laito
(1:21:50 AM) Doctor_Light: He coos understandingly, and turns on the water and sticks his head under it. "…You know /why/ rain is different?"
(1:22:26 AM) Rights: "Because the world is fucked-crazy right now."
(1:22:34 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian picks up a mug and drains it, then moves to a second. She starts to mumble "Fucking useless…don't even see the point…."
(1:23:00 AM) Flames: "I'm well, Dusty. I wanted to warn you about the present rain-shower. It's flammable, liquid human fat by the reports."
(1:23:17 AM) Waxx: Dmitri has had enough of this rain watching; he decides to retire early and get some sleep.
(1:23:31 AM) E4D: «Jillian?»
(1:23:39 AM) DawnyWorks: «What?»
(1:23:45 AM) Doctor_Light: He caws. "Makes sense. …Washing in stream would have been stupid idea by now, I think."
(1:23:45 AM) Waxx: Enter Misha into the kitchen area, looking for some coffee or tea or a stiff drink or anything at this point god damn
(1:23:56 AM) E4D: «Got anything made at the moment?»
(1:24:10 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian's facing out, a table full of tea behind her «Yes, in the cafe»
(1:24:27 AM) E4D: «Copy.»
(1:24:30 AM) Rights: "That would've been a terrible idea. ALl this fat's going to soak into the water."
(1:24:33 AM) Waxx: Misha looks at Jill, staying behind her.
(1:24:44 AM) Waxx: He decides to quietly grab a cup of tea and leave before she notices him.
(1:25:01 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian reaches behind her and grabs a third mug, still muttering to herself.
(1:25:20 AM) Maddy: "T-tea?" Steps out of the shower.
(1:25:38 AM) Waxx: He stops in the doorway, looking at her and gauging her mood. Obviously it's about as good as his own…he decides it might be best to leave her be, since Misha doesn't know shit about women.
(1:26:05 AM) E4D: «Yeah, I was about to head down.»
(1:26:10 AM) E4D: *"
(1:26:16 AM) Ragazzo: "…what?"
(1:26:23 AM) DawnyWorks: "I'm hungry" Jillian stands and turns, seeing Misha "Hey…"
(1:26:29 AM) Ragazzo: "Liquid human fat? That's…terrible."
