Jan 30 23:12:42 <Nus|Plans> Bearing down on him, dressed in bloodstained BDUs, is a twisted abomination wrought in flesh, bone, and disturbingly, metal. He's close enough to make out the name, Gibson, and a bayonet protruding from its chest where his heart should be. His right hand, now fused to his head by tendon and ligament-like strips of 610 tissue, holds a gun to his temple, its
Jan 30 23:13:05 <Nus|Plans> trigger finger twitching sporadically. Gibson's head is inflamed to several times its normal size; the left side is gone, blasted away by the exit wound of the slug clearly intended to end his life. The flesh had other plans, remaking the exit wound into a second, circular maw, toothed tendrils of what was once brain tissue several feet long thrashing wildly
Jan 30 23:13:18 <Nus|Plans> from it. His left eye hangs dead from its socket, the optic nerve not yet having rotted through.
Jan 30 23:13:30 <Nus|Plans> Gibson's left arm has been remade by The Flesh, now nothing more than an instrument of death seven feet long and eighteen inches thick, the muscle studded with glinting metal incorporated from the wreckage of an Osprey. The tissue beneath the skin seems to pulse and writhe with a life of its own, quivering expectantly It stares blankly at John, ambling
Jan 30 23:13:45 <Nus|Plans> forward the last few feet between them.
Jan 30 23:13:52 <Nus|Plans> Go.

Jan 31 00:17:38 <Nioki> It isn't so much a beam as a wave, washing over the monster and frying away its skin. -2 pdef, unless more is permitted because… 12. Persistent.
Jan 31 00:19:43 <Nus|Plans> -2 PDef, -1 Body.
Jan 31 00:19:47 <PaulS_worktop> he drags himself away, having trouble breathing
Jan 31 00:20:14 <Nus|Plans> 4df+2 Defense vs Alice
Jan 31 00:20:15 <Glacon> Nus|Plans: Defense vs Alice: 2 (4df+2=0, -, +, 0)
Jan 31 00:20:36 <Maddy> How many more rolls?
Jan 31 00:22:04 <Nus|Plans> Shit, I've lost track. I'm just gonna call it 2 more.
Jan 31 00:22:14 <Maddy> 4df+4 number one
Jan 31 00:22:15 <Glacon> Maddy: number one: 4 (4df+4=+, -, +, -)
Jan 31 00:22:19 <Nus|Plans> 4df+2
Jan 31 00:22:20 <Glacon> Nus|Plans: 1 (4df+2=0, 0, -, 0)
Jan 31 00:22:26 <Nioki> There's an quick backwash of heat, and the smell of frying flesh. The space under the monster cracks and sparks, and small patches catch fire.
Jan 31 00:22:26 <Maddy> 4df+4 number 2
Jan 31 00:22:27 <Glacon> Maddy: number 2: 4 (4df+4=-, -, +, +)
Jan 31 00:22:34 <Nus|Plans> 4df+2
Jan 31 00:22:34 <Glacon> Nus|Plans: 3 (4df+2=0, +, +, -)
Jan 31 00:22:36 <E4D> Jason takes the opportunity granted by Alice's sustained 200-round burst and charges in, grabbing the straps of John's back and dragging him backwards.
Jan 31 00:23:04 <Maddy> Shall I describe?
Jan 31 00:23:27 <Nus|Plans> Me or you, either way.
Jan 31 00:24:05 <PaulS_worktop> John is jerked up from his front and dragged in the same direction he was attempting to move
Jan 31 00:24:30 <PaulS_worktop> he's too out of it to complain
Jan 31 00:25:07 <Laito> Artemis fires just after Alice, adding to the number of traumatic injuries.
Jan 31 00:26:08 <Maddy> Alice drops her point of aim to lower centerline, then begins letting the recoil walk the light machine up her target. The massive volume of incendiaries burst on impact, chewing away, burning, and cauterizing flesh with each shot.
Jan 31 00:26:20 <Maddy> With only a few dozen rounds left in the drum, she reaches the top of the head, sawing it neatly in half as the magnesium sets the Flesh alight.
Jan 31 00:27:54 <Nus|Plans> The pulsing tissue beneath its scar-like skin writhes, as does PFC Andrew Gibson, its entire body smouldering and burning before, with one final shudder and a choking groan, it stops moving.
Jan 31 00:28:27 <E4D> Jason reaches the hatch with John, then… <CHRIST!> He backs away for a second as he notices a wriggling bit of flesh worming around from a hole in his chest. <Fuck *me*. ALICE! OVER HERE! NOW!>
Jan 31 00:28:31 <Nus|Plans> Its arm continues thrashing wildly a few feet away, the severing of nerves causing it to twitch aimlessly.
Jan 31 00:29:01 <Maddy> Alice runs over. <Should I call Light up here, treat him here?>
Jan 31 00:30:07 <E4D> He keys over to a private circuit. <This isn't a skin rash this time. We'd turn the entire bay into a hot zone by bringin' him down like this.>
Jan 31 00:31:26 <Maddy> <That's a yes.> Alice responds over the private circuit.
Jan 31 00:32:08 <Maddy> «Light, You'll need to come up top.»
Jan 31 00:32:40 <Light> «Nearly there.»
Jan 31 00:33:12 <Light> «Okay.» She arrives and plunges some sort of override code into the door
Jan 31 00:34:35 <Light> Which presumably opens. She carries the panicide.
Jan 31 00:35:13 <Liebe> It opens, cuz Light is/was a fucking O5. Goes where she pleases, thanks.
Jan 31 00:35:28 <Light> Fuck yeah.
Jan 31 00:36:02 <PaulS_worktop> John is laying there with some wriggling bits of Flesh hanging out of him, and gaping wounds where many more *were* pulled out
Jan 31 00:36:24 <PaulS_worktop> he's only very barely conscious
Jan 31 00:38:43 * Light strides out, glances around, and kneels down carefully next to him. "Alice?" She starts an injection.
Jan 31 00:39:11 <Maddy> <Chirst…I dont know if he;s going to s-survive this.>
Jan 31 00:39:41 <Nioki> Alanoch slumps against a wall. He blinks several times, rapidly, and lets out a deep cough.
Jan 31 00:39:50 <Light> "Start the spray?"
Jan 31 00:40:06 <Maddy> Alice nods, helping where she can,
Jan 31 00:42:31 <E4D> Private. <Goddamnit, *really*? Alice, decon in a hurry and get the IV. She's gonna try to fucking spray the shit on him? *Look*. It's fuckin' *inside* him.>
Jan 31 00:42:56 <Maddy> <She's already injected him, Jason.>
Jan 31 00:43:47 <Light> "What are you guys saying?" She looks over the infected sites, trying to guess at a prognosis as well as best course of action.
Jan 31 00:44:13 <Maddy> <You have the IV stuff, Light?>
Jan 31 00:44:35 <E4D> <Oh, durr.> Jason's obviously been watching around them after Rescue 911 showed up.
Jan 31 00:45:01 <Light> "In that bag."
Jan 31 00:47:07 <Maddy> Alice nods. <Can you set him up…I'm gonna make sure the thing is good and dead.>
Jan 31 00:48:31 <Light> "Yes." She nods and starts an IV.
Jan 31 00:50:51 <Maddy> 4df+4 Life sciences manouver to poke at this thing, calling over he shoulder. <Should p-probably cut away as much affected tissue a-as you can w-without killing him,>
Jan 31 00:50:52 <Glacon> Maddy: Life sciences manouver to poke at this thing, calling over he shoulder. <Should p-probably cut away as much affected tissue a-as you can w-without killing him,>: 2 (4df+4=-, -, -, +)
Jan 31 00:50:55 <Maddy> Nope.
Jan 31 00:51:06 <Maddy> 4df+4 medical to learn about this thing.
Jan 31 00:51:07 <Glacon> Maddy: medical to learn about this thing.: 6 (4df+4=+, 0, +, 0)
Jan 31 00:51:24 <Nus|Plans> Good enough.
Jan 31 00:51:29 <Nioki> Alanoch slides down the wall, and continues coughing.
Jan 31 00:54:07 * PaulS_worktop has quit (No route to host)
Jan 31 00:54:13 * PaulS_worktop (~moc.rr.zib.es.0BDA26FA-CRInys|_nrehtuoS#moc.rr.zib.es.0BDA26FA-CRInys|_nrehtuoS) has joined #afteractionmission
Jan 31 00:54:41 <E4D> Jason realizes somewhat belatedly that the sound he's hearing is, indeed, Alanoch choking up a lung, and starts to go to help him… before remembering he was already in contact with John. He turns to face the kid and points at the hatch. <Alanoch! You gotta get underground before we can go inside! We're contaminated to fuck and back!.
Jan 31 00:54:44 <E4D> *>
Jan 31 00:55:20 <Nioki> He nods after a moment, and climbs down.
Jan 31 00:57:29 <Light> Sophia, in the silence of her suit, sets up the IV and kneels over him, excising the growths of parasitic flesh. This would be really disgusting if she weren't Sophia Light. Instead, she's laser-focused with this scalpel.
Jan 31 00:57:40 <Light> It would be a little easier if he didn't have all this damn scar tissue already-
Jan 31 01:01:48 * PaulS_worktop has quit (Quit: Leaving.)
Jan 31 01:03:35 * Nioki has quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.88 [Firefox 9.0.1/20111220165912])
Jan 31 01:22:39 <Maddy> <Jason, w-what are we doing with him?>
Jan 31 01:25:25 <Maddy> Alice says, while disposing of the body.
Jan 31 01:28:22 <E4D> <Set somethin' up out here? We gotta decon everything anyway. Uh… have someone run a body bag up the elevator? We throw him inside, carry him on a gurney down to the hot lab, and take care of him there?>
Jan 31 01:28:42 <Light> Assuming Light can hear: "We could set up a clean room and airlock in one of the containment areas. I'm afraid we may be imposing on Ms. Vriska a little longer."
Jan 31 01:32:56 <E4D> <Whole bay's lined with sprayers. I don't think we should introduce any more contamination than we have to.>
Jan 31 01:34:01 * Nus|Plans is now known as Nusquam
Jan 31 01:34:20 <Maddy> <Sounds good. I'll g-get everyone to move back to the common sleeping area.>
Jan 31 01:35:30 <Light> "Mm. Sounds good. We'll have to light the roof." She finally looks up from the prone figure she's been operating and working on, a sheen of sweat visible on her face through the faceplate.
Jan 31 01:41:27 <E4D> Hhhhot.
Jan 31 01:41:52 <Liebe> bio keters get me randy
Jan 31 01:44:54 <Maddy> John is eventually isolated and brought down to the sprayer room, after everyone who was inside for the duration was moved to the common room. There's a lengly decon proccess for everyone before they're allowed to head further into the post, and John is set up with Alice watching.
