The Mad Russian, Exit Novikov

(12:37:55 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens turns on his radio. «Hey…uh…Jason? I've got something bad to tell you…»
(12:38:02 AM) Maddy: "S-she seemed to r-recognize it, then she left. Now h-his arm is a t-tree. D-dogwood to be precise."
(12:38:32 AM) E4D: «I heard you fuckin' key it. KEEP THE GODDAMN RADIOS ON AT ALL FUCKING TIMES.»
(12:38:45 AM) E4D: «*FUCK*. Send your traffic, Kens.»
(12:38:58 AM) Maddy: "MRI p-picked up somethings m-moving inside, and w-we heard some buzzing. V-vance says it f-feels stronger."
(12:39:08 AM) Maddy: Alice pats the 131.
(12:39:30 AM) Dr_Kens: «The room with karen's body…there's a blood trail leading into the vents.»
(12:39:33 AM) Dexanote: It is patted!
(12:39:47 AM) Tom90deg: «Wait, what? Blood in the vents? Where are you Kens?»
(12:39:58 AM) Maddy: Alice face palms. «Novikov.»
(12:40:11 AM) Vance: «Christ.»
(12:40:18 AM) Dr_Kens: «I'm in the hospital, near the woom with Strel and Misha
(12:40:20 AM) Dr_Kens: »
(12:40:57 AM) Tom90deg: Simon heads off to that room.
(12:40:59 AM) Maddy: «This is why I stay on t-the roof! S-stupid shit h-happens everywhere else!»
(12:41:01 AM) E4D: «Well? What do you want me to do? Get a weapon and check the damn vents.»
(12:41:25 AM) Dr_Kens: «Just send someone for my body, alright? Christ…»
(12:41:37 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens goes to get his rifle, and comes back to the vent.
(12:41:39 AM) MisterFlames: "If you think it's Novikov," Midnight says, "just whistle for him."
(12:41:54 AM) Maddy: "Oh…and Jason? I n-need to talk to you…when we have some private time?"
(12:41:59 AM) Dexanote: Orangey ZOOMS off the roof, onto the neighbouring building's wall, down the wall, then RIGHT ANGLE ONTO HORIZONTAL and ZOOM into the door after Jason.
(12:42:10 AM) Dexanote: it makes sounds like a car tire skittering
(12:42:36 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens pulls down the vent covering, and shines a flashlight in.
(12:42:51 AM) Maddy: Alice whistles.
(12:42:54 AM) *Strelnikov twirls Misha's knife in his hands idly, deciding to go for a walk. He clicks past the room Kens is in, assuming he's just doing some cleanup. It breaks his heart too much to look inside, so he doesn't.
(12:43:01 AM) Sabitsuki: There's an arm inside the vent
(12:43:09 AM) Sabitsuki: His a wedding band on the fingers
(12:43:11 AM) Tom90deg: Simon walks into the room Kens is in. "What do we got?"
(12:43:12 AM) Sabitsuki: Severed.
(12:43:18 AM) Maddy: "Jason! It's a 131. I s-said that already. C-calm your shit."
(12:43:25 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens gags and turns away from the vent.
(12:43:30 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian follows Simon "This looks bad…"
(12:43:42 AM) Dr_Kens: /"Christ…"/
(12:43:53 AM) Dr_Kens: "Guys, push me up. I'm going in."
(12:43:54 AM) Tom90deg: "Kens? What's in the vent?"
(12:43:57 AM) *
Strelnikov stops at the end of the hall. The sudden influx of people and excited talking in the room hasn't escaped him, so…he inches back towards it.
(12:44:10 AM) Maddy: "I'm t-trying to explain s-shit and you're just kind of ignoring me."
(12:44:11 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian walks over and looks in «Fuck…we got an arm…»
(12:44:13 AM) Tom90deg: Simon goes behind Kens and gives him a boost into the vent. "You know, I saw a movie like this once."
(12:44:19 AM) E4D: Jason looks down at it, staring at it through his visor.
(12:44:26 AM) Dr_Kens: "I know, so pull me out if you hear me scream."
(12:44:28 AM) *Strelnikov looms suddenly in the doorway behind them.
(12:44:31 AM) Maddy: Alice whistles again.
(12:44:32 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens crawls towards the arm.
(12:44:34 AM) *
Strelnikov clears his throat!
(12:44:40 AM) Strelnikov: "What the fuck are you doing here."
(12:44:44 AM) Strelnikov: "….And where is my wife?"
(12:45:21 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 stares up at Jason, and glances around.
(12:45:21 AM) Tom90deg: Simon looks over at Strelnikov. "Um…"
(12:45:37 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian pauses and the color drains out of her face "Sir…please be calm"
(12:45:37 AM) Dr_Kens: "Sir, I think something…" Kens looks back out for a moment. "…ate your wife's body…I'm trying to enact vengeance."
(12:45:40 AM) *Strelnikov 's face twitches.
(12:46:06 AM) Maddy: "Nice k-knowing you Kens." Alice is flatface supreme.
(12:46:18 AM) Rights: Geier has the worst timing as she turns the corner behind Dmitri, and blinks, raising an eyebrow and glancing at her walking partner, Laito. "…What's going on in here?"
(12:46:29 AM) laito: "Oi."
(12:46:34 AM) Tom90deg: "We're trying to figure that out Doctor."
(12:46:47 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian closes her eyes "You don't know when to shut up, do you Kens?"
(12:46:48 AM) *
Strelnikov turns on Geier. "Doktor. What is going on here?"
(12:46:58 AM) *laito looks between everyone.
(12:47:18 AM) Heiden [ten.htuoslleb.mem.22D4CB5-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.htuoslleb.mem.22D4CB5-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(12:47:18 AM) mode (+o Heiden) by ChanServ
(12:47:26 AM) laito: "We came from Oncology. What's going on -here-?"
(12:47:58 AM) Tom90deg: "We saw blood, and we're invistigating what's going on."
(12:48:05 AM) Rights: "That's…a good question? Misha's in that room-" She points, and then "And I left Karen's body…oh."
(12:48:27 AM) *
Strelnikov unclasps his holster again and draws his sidearm, speaking in his thick accent. "Someone had better tell me what is going on here. Where is my wife."
(12:48:40 AM) Rights: "…Don't look at me! I left her on the table."
(12:48:44 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens doesn't move. He's terrified of the angry Russian.
(12:48:59 AM) Strelnikov: "You left her."
(12:49:13 AM) laito: "Dmitri," Alex says with warning.
(12:49:33 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov swings up onto the roof with a *thump*, looking for the source of the whistle.
(12:49:43 AM) E4D: Jason's mosulated voice crackles over the radios. «Status?»
(12:49:57 AM) Rights: "…" Geier fixes Dmitri with an honest, stern look. "Dmitri, I did what I had to. I covered her with a sheet, and left her, becuase I was pretty sure nothing was going to happen."
(12:50:07 AM) Maddy: Alice whistles a third time from the stairwell
(12:50:11 AM) Rights: Actually she didn't cover Karen with a sheet but it sounds better that way.
(12:50:15 AM) *Strelnikov 's voice is a low growl. "Where is she."
(12:50:26 AM) Rights: "That is an excellent question."
(12:50:40 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov pads over to the stairwell door, and heads down.
(12:50:43 AM) Dr_Kens: "Sir…please remain calm…"
(12:50:53 AM) *
Strelnikov jabs a finger at Kens. "Get in that fucking vent."
(12:51:07 AM) Dr_Kens: He is in the vent
(12:51:10 AM) Maddy: She looks at him. "Did you e-eat someone in t-the hospital?"
(12:51:13 AM) Strelnikov: "Get -further- in the vent."
(12:51:24 AM) Rights: "This is a terrible idea. Get him out, I can go in."
(12:51:31 AM) Rights: "He's going to get stuck in there and then this will only get worse."
(12:51:36 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens shines the flashlight on and looks further in.
(12:52:32 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov's skull…is repaired. Bits of obviously human skin are patched in where the .50 AE round turn it apart. They are tinged red, however, slowly making them a uniform color as the rest of the 939. "Yes."
(12:52:43 AM) *Strelnikov fishes in a pocket for his cigarettes. "Aleks, I need your lighter."
(12:52:53 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens moves in towards the arm.
(12:53:24 AM) *
laito hands Dmitri a lighter from his pocket. A zippo from a gas station.
(12:53:37 AM) Maddy: Alice face palms. "T-this is going to b-be ugly, hun."
(12:53:54 AM) Rights: Geier feels so terrible about this she doesn't even remind Dmitri that smoking is bad for him.
(12:54:07 AM) Strelnikov: "Spasibo." Dmitri flicks it open and breathes in the smoke, instantly feeling better.
(12:54:24 AM) E4D: Jason mutes his external, getting a chill under Oxide.
(12:54:36 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian nods "Good idea" she lights one herself
(12:54:51 AM) Sabitsuki: "What is the problem?" Novikov's voice fluctuates from a male's Australian accent to a woman's higher pitches.
(12:55:01 AM) laito: "Everyone, let's just calm down down folks. Enhale your various carcinogens and relax."
(12:55:31 AM) Maddy: "T-the husband of that w-woman is…um. He's i-intense, a-and is p-probably not g-going to appreciate y-you eating her."
(12:56:00 AM) Sabitsuki: "Oh."
(12:56:02 AM) Sabitsuki: "I see."
(12:56:03 AM) Rights: "Doctor Kens, was it?" Geier peers at his legs. "..What do you see?"
(12:56:15 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov paces a bit.
(12:56:28 AM) Dr_Kens: "…I'm sorry to say that there's an arm with a wedding ring on it…"
(12:56:29 AM) Maddy: Alice looks at Jason.
(12:56:52 AM) *Strelnikov 's fingers twitch, and the two broken ends of his cigarette fall to the floor.
(12:57:00 AM) Rights: "Oh jesus."
(12:57:03 AM) laito: "Dmitri, give me your gun."
(12:57:10 AM) Rights: "…Dmitri, please."
(12:57:15 AM) laito: "Come on, buddy."
(12:57:16 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 Stares and moves behind Jason.
(12:57:16 AM) Rights: "Give him your gun."
(12:57:19 AM) Strelnikov: "Get your own fucking gun." Dmitri turns and walks into the hall.
(12:57:31 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens starts to cry softly to himself.
(12:57:42 AM) *
laito huffs a sigh and follows after the Russian.
(12:57:57 AM) Rights: "Oh, christ. Are you crying in there?" Geier sighs, before touching Kens' leg. "Kens, calm down."
(12:58:00 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian takes another drag "That went well"
(12:58:05 AM) Rights: "I need you to take a deep breath. Deeeep breath."
(12:58:07 AM) Rights: "And grab the hand."
(12:58:11 AM) Heiden: Dr. Heiden is sitting in the hallway, as per usual.
(12:58:14 AM) Rights: "And pull it out. I'll help pull you out."
(12:58:21 AM) Tom90deg: "I'll give you a hand."
(12:58:24 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens deep breathes, and takes the hand out. "Could you…could you pull my leg?"
(12:58:36 AM) Strelnikov: "Doktor Heiden. Do you know what killed my wife?" It was an airplane, but the distinction is lost on Dmitri.
(12:58:36 AM) DawnyWorks: "Oi, Kens, get your old man ass out of there" Jillian tugs at his legs a bit "I'll give you a hug"
(12:58:44 AM) Rights: Geier gently pulls with Jillian.
(12:58:46 AM) laito: Alex jogs to catch up to Dmitri. "Hey, hey, snap that shit, okay?"
(12:58:56 AM) Tom90deg: Simon grabs one of Kens legs and gives it yank.
(12:59:09 AM) Strelnikov: "There is no snapping. I am fine. What is it you tell me to do when I am angry? In the anger management class?"
(12:59:10 AM) Heiden: "I do not. I thought she had passed when she was with you?"
(12:59:22 AM) *Heiden rises from his seat. "Did something happen?"
(12:59:26 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens is pulled out, and steps back on the ground holding the arm with the wedding ring.
(12:59:42 AM) Rights: Geier takes the arm from him, quickly, and looks it over.
(12:59:44 AM) *
Strelnikov 's voice raises. "Something has -eaten- her body, Doktor Heiden."
(12:59:48 AM) Tom90deg: "You want to do the forensic exam Doctor?"
(12:59:50 AM) Strelnikov: "And NOBODY knows what it was."
(12:59:53 AM) Rights: I assume it's Karen's.
(12:59:55 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian takes another drag "Come here" she hugs Kens
(12:59:57 AM) Rights: "…Yep. This is Karen's."
(1:00:03 AM) Heiden: "Nobody."
(1:00:05 AM) Sabitsuki: it's karen's
(1:00:06 AM) Heiden: "That seems unlikely."
(1:00:11 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens hugs Jillian. Oh god that was bad.
(1:00:27 AM) Heiden: "More likely they are lying to you to cover it up."
(1:00:35 AM) Rights: Geier wiggles it a bit, making the hand and finger flop abotu a bit. Rigor mortis has long since released.
(1:00:39 AM) E4D: Jason looks back at the 131. <Shoo! This is dangerous. Go downstairs.>
(1:00:46 AM) *Strelnikov nods at Heiden, then nods again to Laito. "He is correkt."
(1:00:49 AM) Rights: "…Should…should we take the ring off? Give it back to him?"
(1:00:57 AM) *
laito rubs the bridge of his nose. "Jesus, Fred…"
(1:01:02 AM) Rights: "…Should we give him the whole arm? Lets be frank, I do not know what to do wtih this."
(1:01:03 AM) Dexanote: STARESTARESTARE
(1:01:06 AM) Tom90deg: "How long has the body been dead do you think?"
(1:01:08 AM) DawnyWorks: "Shhh" Jillian cradles the old man's head "I'm here Batt"
(1:01:20 AM) Maddy: "H-hey little buddy? W-why don't you come h-hang out on Eve w-with me. I'm g-going to draw s-some pictures."
(1:01:41 AM) Dexanote: Glance glance.
(1:01:44 AM) Rights: "Karen was dead way before this happened."
(1:01:54 AM) Dr_Kens: "Hooo…" Kens takes deep breathes. "This…was unappealing."
(1:01:55 AM) Rights: "I mean, I already took what I needed before this happened."
(1:02:16 AM) Rights: Geier cannot resist it. She holds the arm out, so the fingers touch Ken's shoulder.
(1:02:16 AM) DawnyWorks: "I know, but it's okay" Jillian hands some instant coffe
(1:02:22 AM) Tom90deg: "Well…I suppose we should give him the ring…"
(1:02:23 AM) Strelnikov: "I allow Doktor Geier to violate her body, and now this happens. I should never have done that. I should never have left her."
(1:02:28 AM) Sabitsuki: "I…should apologize." Novikov walks down the stairs.
(1:02:29 AM) Rights: Touch touch.
(1:02:38 AM) laito: "Listen, Dmitri. You need to calm down. Nobody here is responsible."
(1:02:40 AM) Rights: "Hey. Thanks for getting this out of there."
(1:02:49 AM) Strelnikov: "Whatever consumed the body is responsible, Aleks."
(1:02:56 AM) DawnyWorks: "Hey, cut that shit"
(1:03:01 AM) Dr_Kens: "No problem…" Kens sniffs.
(1:03:08 AM) Strelnikov: "No human being would do that. I have been through two wars…well, three now, and nobody has ever eaten the bodies."
(1:03:12 AM) E4D: <Novikov?>
(1:03:20 AM) E4D: <Novikov, right?>
(1:03:29 AM) Sabitsuki: He turns. "Yes?"
(1:03:38 AM) Rights: She takes the arm, and places it on the operating table for lack of anything else to do with it.
(1:03:39 AM) laito: Alex stared up at the larger man. "And it wasn't Geier either. Yes? We understand that?"
(1:03:41 AM) Maddy: "J-jason? W-we can talk later…I'm g-going to take this guy to the LAV."
(1:03:46 AM) E4D: He's filled with revulsion, speaking to one of those goddamn *things*. <That's probably not a good idea.>
(1:03:47 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 is staring at Novikov
(1:04:00 AM) Strelnikov: "Doktor Geier and I will have a word later," Dmitri adds with a tinge of ice.
(1:04:06 AM) E4D: <All right hun. Button up down in Eve.>
(1:04:11 AM) Tom90deg: "Do you think we should give him the ring?"
(1:04:18 AM) Rights: "Probably."
(1:04:22 AM) Dr_Kens: "I think so…"
(1:04:22 AM) Sabitsuki: "What…should I do, then?"
(1:04:23 AM) Heiden: "Someone was responsible."
(1:04:26 AM) Heiden: "Someone or something."
(1:04:27 AM) Rights: "I think it would be better than handing him his wife's /arm/."
(1:04:28 AM) laito: "We like Doctor Geier. We're going to have -kind- words. Like in our classes, Dmitri."
(1:04:42 AM) Heiden: "Pretending that it was done by nobody serves no purpose other than to hide the truth."
(1:04:45 AM) Rights: She gently removes the ring from the finger, and looks at it in the palm of her hand.
(1:04:48 AM) Strelnikov: "Yes. Kind words. I am always kind. I am the kindest fucking person in the world, and this is what happens."
(1:05:33 AM) *Strelnikov goes to straighten the collar of his kitel. It's in such bad shape that one of the brass buttons pops loose and skitters across the floor.
(1:05:47 AM) Rights: "…Mm…maybe someone else should give it to him."
(1:05:50 AM) *
Strelnikov looks down at his button.
(1:05:53 AM) Rights: "He may be a touch peeved with me."
(1:05:57 AM) Strelnikov: "FUCK."
(1:06:03 AM) laito: "Right. Let's find out what's being a monster around here, and you can shoot it."
(1:06:03 AM) *Strelnikov storms off towards the operating room.
(1:06:03 AM) Dr_Kens: "Don't look at me, Geier…I felt like he was going to shoot me…"
(1:06:09 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian holds her hand out "I'll do it"
(1:06:10 AM) Dr_Kens: "He may /still/ shoot me."
(1:06:11 AM) *
laito hurries behind.
(1:06:11 AM) Maddy: "Ok l-little guy, come on. Y-you can l-look at my drawings." she heads to Eve.
(1:06:13 AM) *Heiden follows Strelnikov.
(1:06:18 AM) Dr_Kens: "Jill, are you sure?"
(1:06:33 AM) Sabitsuki: 4df+4
(1:06:33 AM) Rights: Geier hands the ring to Jill, before jumping as she hears Dmitri near.
(1:06:33 AM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: 4 (4df+4=0, -, 0, +)
(1:06:34 AM) DawnyWorks: "Yeah" Jillian smiles "I can do this"
(1:06:48 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian holds it "He sounds mad"
(1:06:49 AM) *
Strelnikov appears in the doorway. "SON OF…WHERE IS SHE. WHAT DID YOU? WHAT DID YOU DO?"
(1:06:50 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov clicks his teeth and continues down the stairs.
(1:07:07 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens gives Jill a hug. "Be careful."
(1:07:27 AM) Rights: "Dmitri, calm down." Geier steps back, passively. "Please. I know you want to fly off the handle, but right now we have bigger things to worry about."
(1:07:30 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 creeps after Novikov
(1:07:38 AM) Sabitsuki: He shows up outside the operating room a few seconds later, and stands still and silent.
(1:07:51 AM) DawnyWorks: "I will" Jillian steps up to the angry man "Sir?"
(1:07:53 AM) *Strelnikov smiles, his teeth showing.
(1:07:57 AM) Heiden: "You allowed the body of his wife to be stolen after it was left in your care, Dr. Geier."
(1:08:09 AM) Rights: "How was…how was I suppose to know that somebody would get HUNGRY?!"
(1:08:11 AM) Strelnikov: "Yes, what Doktor Heiden said." Dmitri steps into the room.
(1:08:18 AM) *
laito points at Novikov. "Dmitri. There."
(1:08:39 AM) DawnyWorks: "Please, stop yelling" Jillian looks to Dmitri "Sir?"
(1:08:42 AM) Dexanote: The eye darts between all those present.
(1:08:46 AM) Maddy: Alice doesn't try to tempt the 131 to follow her anymore and heads to the LAV to draw.
(1:08:47 AM) Heiden: "Hungry?"
(1:08:47 AM) Rights: "I don't exactly expect to be traveling with maneaters who cant' distinguish between 'this is okay to eat' and 'this is not okay to ea- ah fuck." She cuts off as she glances at Novikov.
(1:09:09 AM) Rights: Absently, she scratches her side, where she replaced her decaying skin with some of Karen's.
(1:09:10 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov clicks his teeth as the eyes slowly turn towards him.
(1:09:33 AM) *Strelnikov notices that everyone goes silent. He exhales slowly, and turns on a bootheel. The steel heel iron digs a groove into the linoleum.
(1:10:03 AM) Rights: "…Where the hell is Lance when you could use an overdose of morphine."
(1:10:10 AM) DawnyWorks: "Sir" Jillian follows him "Please, may I talk to you?"
(1:10:24 AM) *
Strelnikov 's eyes track up to the thing's head.
(1:10:43 AM) Rights: "Oh god, Jillian, don't, he's going to-"
(1:11:02 AM) Strelnikov: Under normal circumstances this would warrant a double take, or a startled jump, but Dmitri is too filled with rage and bloodlust to be surprised by much right now.
(1:11:10 AM) *laito backs away…..
(1:11:22 AM) Sabitsuki: The monster speaks in Russian. <Hello.>
(1:11:35 AM) *
Heiden 's hand dips into nothingness for a moment, and comes back with an iridescent thread.
(1:11:38 AM) Strelnikov: "Yab tomat voyu. Sucha."
(1:12:20 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 glances at Heiden and BOLTS THE FUCK OUT OF THERE. it crashes into chairs and stuff and makes its way to the nearest door outside.
(1:12:22 AM) Rights: Geier backs the fuck up.
(1:12:41 AM) laito: "There's your monster, Dmitri. Don't lose him."
(1:12:47 AM) E4D: Jason's made it down the stairs now that the kitten-pod and fleshbeast are out of the way, and his wife is safely away from a possible confrontation. He taps a sequence into the palm of his left hand with the tips of his fingers, engaging the suit's power sysyem. He approaches the disaster area-to-be, looking around for anyone who can explain what the fuck.
(1:12:50 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian takes a step back "It can wait"
(1:12:55 AM) Strelnikov: "Spasibo, Aleks."
(1:13:12 AM) Rights: "Laito, jesus christ, don't pin the blame-"
(1:13:15 AM) Sabitsuki: <Okay.> It…kneels.
(1:13:25 AM) *laito flashes a grin at Geier.
(1:13:29 AM) Strelnikov: [You speak my language? What did you do with my wife.]
(1:13:46 AM) Sabitsuki: <I ate her body.>
(1:14:47 AM) *
Strelnikov 's face twitches, his gun hand resting on the flap of his holster.
(1:14:48 AM) Heiden: <Do what must be done, Dmitri.> Heiden learned Russian for a reason!
(1:14:51 AM) Rights: Geier gestures, annoyed, at Laito, before sighing and just staying the hell back.
(1:15:21 AM) *Strelnikov remembers. Heiden is a true friend, he understands loss. He understands grief. Fred is right.
(1:15:40 AM) Sabitsuki: <I was hungry, and I could not control myself. Please, show mercy and make my death quick.>
(1:15:57 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 rockets around to the LAV and crashes into a pile of debris.
(1:16:20 AM) Rights: "Is he apologizing? My russian is shit."
(1:16:27 AM) Maddy: "Shhh shhhh." Alice tries to calm the eye pod.
(1:16:43 AM) Maddy: The back ramp is still open.
(1:17:19 AM) Maddy: She sits back and sketches.
(1:18:06 AM) Tom90deg left the room (quit: Quit: ~ Trillian Astra - ~).
(1:18:17 AM) Dexanote: It kinda sits with her, watching her draw.
(1:18:44 AM) Strelnikov: [You ate my wife, and you come to apologize to me. Why is that.]
(1:19:42 AM) Sabitsuki: [Because I could not control myself. I regret this lapse.]
(1:20:07 AM) Strelnikov: [You lack discipline.]
(1:20:19 AM) Sabitsuki: [It is true.]
(1:20:57 AM) Maddy left the room (quit: Quit: WOOSH!).
(1:21:01 AM) Strelnikov: [I do not understand you. Do you feel her? Do you have her memories?]
(1:21:35 AM) *
laito slowly wanders over to stand next to Geier.
(1:21:45 AM) Sabitsuki: [I…I have her voice, and her flesh has repaired my own. But I do not have her memories.]
(1:22:14 AM) Rights: "…This is not going to end well." Geier whispers to Laito.
(1:22:39 AM) *Strelnikov wrinkles his nose and cocks his had towards Geier momentarily. [It would seem you have something in common with Doktor Geier, then.]
(1:22:51 AM) E4D: Jason speaks up. <There's not gonna be a fucking shootout in here.>
(1:22:58 AM) laito: "It's going to end -fine-," he whispers back.
(1:23:30 AM) Sabitsuki: [Perhaps. All I know is what I am - a monster.]
(1:23:53 AM) *
Strelnikov nods, first to Novikov, then to Jason. "You are right. I do not need a gun."
(1:24:11 AM) Strelnikov: 4df+4 Misha's knife!

(1:24:29 AM) *laito pulls Geier back from the action a bit.
(1:24:32 AM) *
Heiden plucks at the threads of fate.
(1:24:36 AM) Heiden: Fatespinner. Dmitri gets a reroll.
(1:24:52 AM) Rights: "You're insane." Geier growls at Laito. NO THIS IS NOT GOING TO END OKAY OH GOD.
(1:25:19 AM) Strelnikov: 4df+4 Try again
(1:25:19 AM) Quidmore: Strelnikov: Try again: 5 (4df+4=+, +, -, 0)
(1:27:46 AM) Sabitsuki: The knife sinks into the Red's skull to the hilt, but if it affected it all, it doesn't show. Novikov remains kneeling.
(1:27:55 AM) E4D: Jason draws his .50 and fires a single round into the air. <CUT THIS SHIT OUT RIGHT NOW.>
(1:28:01 AM) E4D: *ceiling
(1:28:33 AM) Doctor_Light [||tibbiM] entered the room.
(1:28:45 AM) DawnyWorks: "Sir?" Jillian takes a step forward "May I give you something?"
(1:28:57 AM) Strelnikov: Fate point to SLAV SHIT, then?
(1:29:04 AM) Heiden: Yes.

(1:30:09 AM) Rights: "Oh god damn-!"
(1:30:40 AM) Sabitsuki: The red clicks its teeth as the knife apparently droves home even harder. Novikov loses a point of Body.
(1:30:43 AM) *Heiden looks over his shoulder at Jason, shakes his head, then turns back.
(1:30:55 AM) Sabitsuki: *drives
(1:31:12 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian jumps, having moved closer, she takes a shaky breath
(1:31:16 AM) *
Strelnikov lunges forward and jabs with the knife, grappling with the thing and baring his steel teeth. The knife sticks in the things body and Dmitri decides to just leave it there for now. This is personal.
(1:31:39 AM) laito: Dmitri's might was frightening. Alex hadn't even seen anything like this before from the big man. He deserved it though.
(1:32:10 AM) laito: "See? Everything's cool," he whispered to Geier.
(1:32:52 AM) E4D: Jason levels the weapon at the alert. <COLONEL. *LISTEN* TO ME. That thing is a Foundation scientist not entirely under control of his form. *Stand* *the* *fuck* *down*.>
(1:33:11 AM) Rights: "No!" Geier shoves Laito, giving him a look. "He's going to /kill/ him!"
(1:33:16 AM) Heiden: "You broke my jaw when I told you your son was dead. That thing just ate his wife."
(1:33:21 AM) *Heiden turns and advances towards Jason.
(1:33:27 AM) Heiden: "Hypocrite."
(1:33:35 AM) Strelnikov: 4df+6 The blood is drawn, now kill it yourself!
(1:33:35 AM) Quidmore: Strelnikov: The blood is drawn, now kill it yourself!: 9 (4df+6=+, +, +, 0)

(1:33:45 AM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: jesus christ: 3 (4df+4=0, 0, 0, -)
(1:33:47 AM) Rights: "His wife was ALREADY DEAD!" Geier barks at Heiden.,
(1:33:57 AM) *Strelnikov uses his god damned teeth. It is only fair.
(1:34:07 AM) Rights: "jesus CHRIST!"
(1:34:21 AM) Strelnikov: The iron was mined in the Caucasus mountains by the hands of unwilling slave labor.
(1:34:30 AM) laito: "Monster for a monster."
(1:34:37 AM) Strelnikov: It was shipped, by train, to tula, cast down, and molded into teeth. Then sent to a dentist in Moscow.
(1:35:03 AM) Strelnikov: The dentist wasn't sure why his patient asked for steel, but a customer was a customer.
(1:35:05 AM) Vance left the room.
(1:35:11 AM) Vance [~ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.D1BB1404-CRInys|agemO#ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.D1BB1404-CRInys|agemO] entered the room.
(1:35:27 AM) Strelnikov: Over a decade later, that Russian steel bit into Novikovs god damned neck and drew blood for the first time.
(1:35:55 AM) Strelnikov: Everything is a struggle, be it mining iron, or killing a hell beast. All life is a struggle.
(1:36:05 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov clicks his teeth, and then grinds them, but makes no effort to shake the mad Russian off.
(1:36:05 AM) Strelnikov: Only in death does the struggle end.
(1:36:08 AM) Rights: "THis isn't okay!"
(1:36:24 AM) Rights: "Dmitri for god's sake STOP!"
(1:36:55 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian stands frozen a few feet away
(1:37:21 AM) Rights: Geier finally moves, trying to pull Dmitri away futily. It is a doomed effort from the start.
(1:37:36 AM) Ragazzo: Lance sighs, stepping into the hallway.
(1:37:49 AM) *
Heiden turns to Dmitri and barks once, in Russian.
(1:37:52 AM) Heiden: <Finish it!>
(1:37:56 AM) Ragazzo: "A hospital is the last place for murder…"
(1:38:05 AM) laito: Alex blinks from staring at Dmitri. He looks at Heiden, then back. "Elizabeth…"
(1:38:11 AM) *Heiden twists one of Fate's threads and wrenches it unnaturally.
(1:38:14 AM) *
Strelnikov hears Fred's voice through the fog in his mind. Finish it.
(1:38:23 AM) Heiden: Fatespinner. -2 to Novikov's next roll.
(1:38:30 AM) Rights: "DMITRI YOU ARE NOT AN ANIMAL!"
(1:38:35 AM) Rights: "WHAT. WOULD. KAREN. SAY."

(1:38:53 AM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: defense: 3 (4df+4=-, -, +, 0)
(1:39:17 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian whimpers slightly
(1:39:25 AM) Strelnikov: Dmitri's heel irons add the extra weight needed to crush bone and mangle flesh as he stomps down with every last bit of strength.
(1:39:42 AM) Strelnikov: They don't stop until they clatter against the floor, again and again.
(1:40:08 AM) Rights: Geier stumbles back, hands over her mouth.
(1:40:16 AM) Sabitsuki: The red flesh cracks and sprays across the floor. Novikov does not move as he lies on his side, headless.
(1:40:46 AM) Rights: "…"
(1:40:48 AM) Dr_Kens: Kens hears the crack from the stairway up to them. Jesus.
(1:40:54 AM) Rights: Geier closes her eyes, tight.
(1:41:09 AM) Rights: She's not freaked out. She's furious.
(1:41:10 AM) Sabitsuki: <Finish it, comrade.>
(1:41:19 AM) Sabitsuki: Novikov…is still talking.
(1:41:34 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 is looking around the corner again.
(1:41:54 AM) Strelnikov: [You killed my wife. She was alive until you touched her.] Dmitri unholsters his Makarov and fires it down into the mess on the floor.

(1:42:29 AM) laito: "Cole. Don't."
(1:42:34 AM) Ragazzo: He stops.
(1:42:38 AM) Ragazzo: Backs away.
(1:42:43 AM) Ragazzo: Quickly.
(1:42:49 AM) laito: "Not a wise use of your time."
(1:42:49 AM) Rights: Geier stares, trembling.
(1:43:16 AM) Sabitsuki: The red flesh absorbs the 9x18mm easily. Novikov's voice is in a state of flux between the task force members and Karen's. It speaks in English. "Kill me, please…"
(1:43:34 AM) Strelnikov: 4df+4 Keep firing. Don't listen to it, just keep shooting. It isn't her. She's gone.

(1:44:13 AM) Heiden: <Let it suffer.>
(1:44:20 AM) *Strelnikov keeps pulling the trigger until the slide locks back. He throws it to the ground with a clatter and goes in with the boot heel again.

(1:46:00 AM) Heiden: <Nothing of value was lost.>
(1:46:16 AM) Ragazzo: Lance exhales. He walks away.
(1:46:33 AM) Dexanote: 131-1 stares.
(1:46:33 AM) Strelnikov: A final clash of hobnails on lineolum, and the deed is done.
(1:46:37 AM) Rights: "…" Geier just stands, and stares, and stares, brow furrowed.
(1:46:46 AM) DawnyWorks: "Sir?" Jillian pulls away from Kens "I have something for you"
(1:46:52 AM) *
Strelnikov reaches down and wrests Misha's knife free, then looks for his pistol.
(1:47:17 AM) Strelnikov: Sweat and gore drip from his forehead.
(1:48:08 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian taps him on the shoulder softy "Sir?"
(1:48:45 AM) ***Strelnikov ignores everyone else in the room. Having finally located his spent Makarov, he snatches it up, holsters it, and tries muscling his way out of the room.
(1:49:11 AM) DawnyWorks: "I have your wife's ring Sir"
(1:49:44 AM) Strelnikov: Dmitri doesn't hear a damn thing. Nothing except that thing's voice asking him to make it quick.
(1:50:17 AM) laito: "I'll take that," Alex offers to Jillian."
(1:50:19 AM) laito: -"
(1:50:22 AM) Rights: Geier moves to grab the ring from Jillian and follow after Dmitri.
(1:50:24 AM) DawnyWorks: Jillian looks down and lets a tear fall "I'll give it to you tomorrow" she walks back to Kens and sobs
