Hellions Mini Mission – Better of Two Sides

Hellions Mini Mission – Better of Two Sides

[I think that I can manage a mini-mission today, so long as you guys don’t mind the lack length or substance.

Starting about twelve, maybe a little bit after.

Also, something to note; the timeline is a bit askew at the moment, since there are three topics running that are pertinent to the storyline. One doesn’t really matter anymore, and can run indefinitely between players or whatever. The ‘Drown Drown Drown’ one is to get rid of everyone who’s jumping ship before these missions, and then after that, it’s to shift the team… so that’ll be handled as soon as the people leaving the team have been sorted out.]

"POOM!"

The Hellions appear at the entrance of Disneyland in the middle of the night, with the gates behind them locked tight. Impy is kneeling in front of them, facing away from them, holding a green replica of Mjolnir that he’s planted into the ground, electricity flowing off of him.

He looks up and the hammer disappears.

"Special effects. Don’t ever leave home without them!"

"Okay! We find our way to the wonderful world of Disney through the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which is…."

He pauses, thinking, and slowly points to the right.

"Thataway!"

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 1, 2007, 12:22pm

A big map appears in Impy’s hands.

"No, that’s where the sharks are…"

He claps his hands together, having just remembered an important plot point. Another clap results in a stranger appearing in front of them.

"This guy’s name is Dominic! Dominic needs to lighten up a bit – you see, Dominic’s an angry little boy, who doesn’t really know how to deal with that anger. And no-one likes that. So my good pal Chuck wanted to send him to Emma Frost to sort that out, but he couldn’t get a hold of the Hellion! So I decided to do him a favour and… oh… yeah. Emma Frost’s not here. I forgot. Then again… she’s a party pooper. We’ll have more fun without her!"

He glances between Dominic and the Hellions.

"Hm… isn’t there usually meant to be some kinda misunderstanding here?"

Impy blows a raspberry at Alexander.

"Fine. Spoilsport."

He turns back to the map, and unrolls it. It trails across the floor, flowing a few metres.

"Alright… um… dang. This is no good! Let’s see…"

He points at a statue behind which a shadow creeps.

"Oh! We’ve got another visitor! I’ve been expecting this one!"

The shadow steps out from behind the statue, looking a little like a Heartless.

Doreen steps up.

"Hiya, we're the Hellions. We're a group of superheros, although recently we've been wanted by SHIELD, and we get attacked by evil hell demons a little too often, plus we accidentally destroyed a town. Still it's alot of fun and we'd be proud to have you join."

Squirrel girl offers her hand to Dominic, before noticing the heartless.

"What's that…"

Impy knocks the arrow from the bow.

When the Hellions get to the ride, the first thing that becomes apparent is that it's noticeable less… stable than it usually is. Seriously, it’s not even running, and you can hear creaking.

The other thing is that there’s an audible whirring coming from behind the ride.


Re: Hellions Mini Mission &#; Better of Two Sides

"The Hellions. New Mutant sister team." I say evenly to Orchestra. "And we should get this over with as soon as possible so we can not be doing this any more."

I start to head around the ride.

"You're absolutely right." I say, slithering behind Cadmus and taking his shadow. Within moments information about his time with the team floods into my head, along with his other memories…something about a girl named…Paige…but I do my best to filter it all out.

"We should get this over with." I flex a few muscles and continue on.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 1, 2007, 1:09pm

The ride gives way beneath Dominic. Thankfully, he’s only a metre off the ground.

"Around! Around, around, around the ride!"

As soon as Alexander moves around the ride, he notices what seems to be a whirling, crackling purple portal.

Of course, he couldn’t be a Hellion if he was lucky enough to walk through it without incident.

A mad eyed Hyena jumps out of it and, surprisingly enough, bowls Alexander over, cackling madly. Another two hyenas walk out after him.

"I’m hungry…."

"Shut up, Banzai."

"But I haven’t eaten, Shenzi!"

"I said shut up. Well, what do we have here? Humans…."

"Yeah, hyenas," Shenzi growls. "Imagine that. And what would you be?"

"Shut up, Banzai, and follow the orders," Shenzi whispers.

The hyena that leaped at Alexander gladly acquiesces with Orchestra’s request, and leaps for Orchestra’s throat, still cackling madly.

Shenzi shakes his head sadly.

"Ed, the idiot. Never waits for the call."

"Mufasa. Heh. That name sends tingles down my spine." Shenzi runs between Alexander’s legs and jumps at Doreen with his teeth bared.

"Mufasa, Mufasa, Mufasa!"

"Shut up, Banxai."


Re: Hellions Mini Mission – Better of Two Sides
Post by beta on Aug 1, 2007, 1:17pm

Dominic pulls himself out of the ride, "Yeah, that was just rbrilliant." He points his finger like a gun towards the nearest hyena, "Bang!" A narrow beam of energy flies from his finger.

The energy slams into Banzai’s side just as he was about to take a chunk out of Valerie’s leg, slamming him into the Pirates ride.

With another loud creak, the ride begins to collapse onto the Hellions.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 1, 2007, 1:19pm

Shenzi reels a little from the surprise attack, and ducks out of the way of the collapsing ride, shaking Tippy Toe off.

Impossible Man pops back into view, looking at the ride. With another pop, he repairs it, and stalks over to the portal, a shotgun in his hands.

He peers into the portal, and the shotgun disappears.

Impossible Man taps his foot in front of the portal, still studying it.

"Ooh… this is bad. This is bad, this is bad, this is bad."

He turns back to the Hellions, a visor appearing on his head.

"We’re going to go see a visor. Very important part here, and I messed it up real bad. ‘Course, it can’t go back to how it was before, but you can fix it… kinda."

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Aug 1, 2007, 1:46pm

When the Hellions go through the portal, they find themselves in what might seem to be the site of a volcano at first look.

At second, they’ll realise that’s not the case. It’s not much of a help when they see a fairly fat sultan running past them.

"Go for the lamp!" Impy shouts before popping out.

A giant red hand brushes past them and grabs the sultan, a tiger growling at the hand and lunging at it. It just gets swatted away for its trouble.

The room seems to stabilise, and the Hellions see a giant, red genie in the middle, holding the struggling sultan in his hand.

"After all this time, you’re just going to walk out on your dear vizier when he makes one decision you don’t like?" the genie taunts him, not having noticed the Hellions yet.

If any of the Hellions look closely, they'll find that the lamp is in the corner of the room furthest to them, up in the right. What doesn't help is that the room is cracking apart and splitting up, platforms drifting further and further away from each other, lava below and between the platforms.

"There's the lamp, let's get it."

She starts hopping from piece to piece, to get to the lamp.

I like the new guy.

"I agree with him." She says, pointing at Orchestra.

As she starts hopping over to the lamp, Doreen draws the Jafar's attention, who fires a bolt out of his hand that only just misses her. What it does do, is cracks the platform she's on.

Noticing the others too, he makes a swarm of overgrown locusts that, well… swarm them.

I shed off Cadus' shadow and command it back to him, I can move faster without it. I begin running towards this lamp.

"Who makes a room with lava in it? There is no sense in that at all!"

"Ah!"

She hops onto another platform to distract Jafar, while Tippy Toe leaps off her shoulder to get the lamp.

A locust goes after Tippy Toe and engages him in mortal combat.

Casting off the shadow, Orchestra manages to weave away from the locusts and gets to the lamp.

Oh… crap.

There's no fighting a swarm of big bugs. I mean, I could take half a dozen out with each swing, but there's a hundred more taking their place. I place my sheild up in front of me, battering ramming my way throught the swarm.

Alexander takes a literal wall of them out, but there's not much more room to move straight forwards without running straight into the lava pit below that Jafar created.

And now he has locusts attacking him, trying to swarm him off of the edge.

Tippy Toe starts biting and scratching the locust's, Doreen, hops from platform to platform, both of them going separate routes to the lamp.

Tippy Toe's attacks on the locust don't seem to phase it, but Doreen maanges to get to the lamp.

I hate bugs.

I level a thunderclap at the swarm trying to push me into the lava to make some room.

"Orchestra! You have it, use it! Anytime now!"


Re: Hellions Mini Mission – Better of Two Sides

"…FLAMES!"

Flames shoot out of my ring at the bugs.

I reach out and grab the lamp.

"Victory!"

Alexander's clap clears all of the bugs trying to drive him off of the cliff, leaving him relatively safe - but it also clears his view to wear a few locusts are going for Dominic's eyes.

Valerie sets a crowd of the locusts alight, burning them away.

As soon as Orchestra shouts out, Jafar turns to him in what sounds very much like a shriek.

"GET AWAY FROM THAT!"

He levels a blast that knocks Orchestra away from the lamp, but for the most part… only hits the lamp. The lamp starts glowing a deep red and shaking.

Act quickly.

I send a few arrows flying to take down the locusts heading for Dominic.

The lamp shoots up into the air, a crack running down its centre, and it continues shaking violently. Impossible Man pops back in, looking solemn for once.

"Let's go, kids."

He begins to pop them out when it explodes, only just catching them in the explosion.
