The way you hurt me baby

Always acted mild and meek

Why don't just get a gun and shoot it
Why don't you just get a gun
Why don't you just get a gun
And shoot it through this heart of mine
Through this heart of mine

You tried to stretch me on the rack
I saw you laughing when I cracked
You broke my will you broke my back
On the wheel of uncertainty

You tried to push me to the edge
You wouldn't listen when I begged
Why don't you push me off the ledge
It's just torture baby

Why don't just get a gun and shoot it
Why don't you just get a gun
Why don't you just get a gun
And shoot it through this heart of mine
Through this heart of mine

Why don't you just buy a gun and shoot it
Why don't you just buy a gun

Your friends will say it's self defense
They say it's cheap and no expense

[Two is a little low… but beggars can't be choosers and all that. I do not need that many people for the start anyway. So I will get this started and hope that I get more along the way.]

The darkness that falls over the city contrasts perfectly with the bright, sunny little dale it is during the day. It seems like the perfect place for general nastiness, in fact. Where around every corner, in every nook, within every shadow, and up every lampost [>_>] could hide demons, ghouls, toothy fiends with bad breath; what generally goes bump in the night.

He shouldn't be far now. I can't maintain a lock on him any longer - some thing is deliberately blocking me out, but you should almost be there, Emma tells them, maintaining telepathic contact with the small group.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 7:19pm

I'm a little surprised that I've been affiliated with the institute for this long without ending up on a "mutant in need" mission, now that I think about it.

"Telepathy being blocked? I knew nothing good could be ahead of us the moment something called a Hellmouth was mentioned. Were you able to get any sort of info on the type of danger he was in before you got cut off?"


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 7:19pm

"Well, isn't this just a little slice of…..the darkest corner of hell."

Wreck eyes the darkness, waiting for something to jump out and say hello.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:22pm

Being chased by someone or something, but being honest, he was all to vague in his panic for me to get any clear information out of him.

A few shouts can be heard ahead of them. A building lies in between them and the source of the shouts; a small one, with a path going around it on either side. The shouts came from about a couple of hundred metres ahead of the building.

Careful, dear. And please, don't be so eager to bring this to a physical level of conflict. Spare us all the grief, if you can.

Actually, I would prefer you to err on the side of caution, though finishing our dealings here does seem advisable. Either way I'm honestly a little disturbed by the dampening of my powers… I suppose you should be as quick as you can about it, yes.

Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 7:31pm

"The universe is screaming 'Split up' at us by presenting two paths, but I refuse to indulge. Let's go."

I head down the right path at a brisk pace, assuming the others follow. Right, right, think first, slash later. Though you just know that slashing will be necessary eventually.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:34pm

I'd much rather resolve this without that being the case, Alexander.

As Alexander makes his way down the side of the building, a young man, maybe twenty years old, though that might be pushing it, becomes visible running slightly awkwardly. The run is awkward in that he seems somehow compelled to stop at the same time. When his eyes scan his surroundings for somewhere the hide, they fall on Alexander, and he cowers slightly.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 7:37pm

Having begun whistling the theme to Ghostbusters, Wreck abruptly stops.

"Hello, random person. How are you this fine evening?"


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:38pm

Wreck? Wreck, who are you talking to?

He doesn't seem particularly inclined to stop. In fact, he turns to run at them and tries to shove Wreck over to continue running.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 7:38pm

Don't we always.

"Hey there. Any chance that you've been screaming lately? If so, we're here to help."

Wreck sticks his foot out in the path of the guy's ankle.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:42pm

The boy trips over Wreck's foot and comes crashing down to the ground where he seems to just… lie there and give up. Completely.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 7:46pm

I crouch near the guy.

"Hey. Not dead, right? Do you speak?"

I almost go with "We aren't here to hurt you, but my friend is a recovering cannibal and irritation sends him back to his old ways." but the guy looks like he would die on the spot if you spook him.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:49pm

As Cadmus crouches over the boy, he notices two small holes with very little spacing between them on the boy's neck.

The boy continues to lie face down on the ground.

"Yeah, I speak! What the hell do you want with me?!"

Would either of you like to tell my who you're speaking with, or shall I just sit here, twiddling my thumbs? Even through a telepathic projection of her voice, they can hear Emma becoming slightly irate.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 7:52pm

"We want to take you back to our cannibal haven, fire up the stewpot and….."

In a rare moment of self restraint, Wreck shakes his head.

"Um, I guess we want to help. With whatever in god's name you need help with."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 7:53pm

He glances up.

"Um, we're talking to the weird guy who just stumbled over my foot. I imagine I'm not imagining him, since Cadmus is talking to him too."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 7:54pm

"Nope. Not imagining him."

Also, he may or may not have been bitten by a vampire.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 7:57pm

Emma brings a hand to her forehead and sighs.

"I was quite firmly of the belief that taking on another generation of Hellions would be enough payment for the sins I've comitted in this life. Obviously, I was wrong."

Wreck, there's no-one there, let alone a vampire victim.

The boy rolls over on the floor, dirt covering his front.

"If you want to help, then get me away from those freaks that're chasing me! They're right behind me, only, further back."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 7:59pm

"Well, there certainly is. You're welcome to poke him with a stick once we get him back home."

Wreck sighs.

"I guess someone should carry him. Although if this is a trick and he decides to bite, I'm going to be miffed."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 8:02pm

"… what sort of freaks?"

Your insistence that nobody is there is fairly convincing, but the guy I'm looking at is slightly more so. Unless the gods hate us and we're dealing with a stronger telepath.

[Darkness falls on Sunnyvale, and we go off looking for someone in trouble. Find a kid with fang marks on his neck, who says to save him from the freaks chasing him. For whatever reason, Emma keeps insisting that he isn't actually there and we're all crazy]


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:08pm

That thought is particularly disconcerting. Give me a moment, I'll see what I can dig up. A stronger telepath should be easy to detect, if I know what I'm looking for. A more skilled telepath… that would be difficult.

"These weird guys in uniform! They've been chasing me for a couple of days, trying to nab me for god knows what!"

Sure enough, around the corner come four men clad in a uniform lacking any distinctive marking. It's almost as if they're formed in an assimilated mindset with a functional unity, but do not want to be distinguished or recognisable. They're a bit away from the group still, about a hundred metres or so, and don't seem to have spotted them yet.

Them, I do see. Try to avoid conflict.

Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 8:13pm

But thrashing them would be so easy…

"Fine. Let's go."

I grab the guy with one hand and head back the way we came.

"Do you know anything about them? Did… one of them happen to bite you?"


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by sam2 on May 30, 2007, 8:13pm

"Let's just pretend we don't see them then."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:17pm

They haven't seen you yet, but- Emma is cut off for a moment, and she grips her temples in pain. Blood starts trickling out of her nose.

"Oh."

The connection re-establishes itself and they can hear Emma's voice in their head again - though it's a little more strained.

They- I can't get into their heads. Not without them knowing. Unfortunately, that means they know you're here now. I'm afraid you seem to have been right, Alexander.

"Bite me? I know I said they're freaks, but I don't think they're into that!"

The uniformed 'freaks' turn their attention to the small group and march over to them.

"Wuh-oh. Here they come. Um… I'll be right here. Behind you guys. I mean, I laugh in the face of danger, sure… but then I go and hide until it goes away."


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 8:21pm

I get my shield off of my back and raise my sword.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:23pm

Don't be childish. It's clear she isn't willing to cede defeat. Be quick about it, dear.

The closest of the uniforms pulls a handgun out and shoots at Alexander.

[The Chicago way, as Plastic Man would say.]

Another is next to Kee'an in a blur of movement, and slugs him with an energy charged hand.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by sam2 on May 30, 2007, 8:25pm

"That was quick."

I jump into the mob, trying to get them so focused on me in close they stop trying to shoot people.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Wreck on May 30, 2007, 8:25pm

"Naughty. Guns are bad."

Wreck draws his guns and opens fire at the one who shot.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:27pm

Wreck shoots Uniform Number One in the hand, making it rather difficult for him to hold a gun.

Kee'an's distraction works well. And he gets a couple of kicks in the face for it.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 8:30pm

Bullets. My only weakness. How did you know?

Well the shield was already out, so that was a plus. I raise it the moment I see him pulling the gun up and hope to deflect it. I charge the group afterwards, shield up constantly. When I get close I lower it and try to cut the nearest one of them to ribbons.

Sigh.

Or, I backhand him, to see if that sort of violence is even necessary.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by sam2 on May 30, 2007, 8:31pm

Wow, Kicks from humans.

What a waste of time. I start trying to knock them down. Again, I'm counting on them not drawing guns this close.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:33pm

The backhand connects with the group - yes, all of them; It's a big, powerful hand - and actually wipes them all out but one.

He looks down at his hip, panicked, and pulls what looks like a walkie talkie off of it.

"Zone! We're outmatched!"

In a flash, the group of four are teleported away. The boy peeks out from behind a building right after.

"And don't come back! Um… can we go now?"


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on May 30, 2007, 8:37pm

Teleportation. Lovely. Infuriating.

"I… suppose. Why did they want you in the first place?"

«Sigh. I'm here for twenty fivish more minutes.»


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 8:41pm

"I don't know, when people start chasing you, you kinda just run, rather than sit 'n' chat, and invite them over for scones and tea to ask 'Hey, you, WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU CHASING ME?!' With the knives and the guns and the silent suit guys, you're pretty much shitting yourself instead!"

I take it that they're gone? All I can pick up besides you is static from the area. If that's the case, bring him back, so that we can decide what to do from here. I doubt that you want to remain in a position where you could be targetted again. Emma pauses. They can fill the silence with the predictable sigh that she lets out.

Besides you, that is, Alexander.

The guy looks up at them, his face still conveying mild panic.

[I'm going to slap a fastforward in here. It'll disrupt the pace a little, but… yeah.

So, one unceremonious fast-forward later…]

Once they return to the safe house that the Hellions are holed up in, Emma comes out to see them with the rest of the Hellions in tow. She looks Dario over, a look of confusion coming over her face for a moment before she forces it off. It isn't becoming, after all.

"This is interesting. I'm still not getting anything from him." She steps forwards, looking him in the eye, but she doesn't extend a hand.

"Dario Medina, I presume? I'm Emma Frost." He opens his mouth to say something, but she turns to Torrance instead.

"We can't keep him here. Frankly, we don't need the attention. Our host has so kindly picked out another safe house where we can put him for a little while. I want the Hellions to escort him. This… telepathic silence worries me a little, so I'll be coming with you."

"Thanks, oh Atlas. I think walking'll be fine."

"Yes, we'll have to walk. The bus is still being repaired. It isn't far, which is a relief. Come along." A few steps lead out of the entrance, and they're on their way.

Without a word, Emma places a hand on Dario's neck, looking for the bite. He struggles a little, and earns himself a slap on the back of the head. After a moment or two of looking at the bit, she turns back to the Hellions.

"He hasn't been bitten by anything remotely mammalian. The holes are too small and too close together." She glances at Dario again, and cocks her head to one side questioningly.

"So tell me, dear, why might those be there?"

He shrugs slightly, but squirms under her gaze and relents. "Okay, one of them pinned me down at one point and stuck me in the neck with some weird widget."

Emma's eyes widen slightly, and her mouth opens in an 'o' fashion - only sligjtly agape. "Oh. This is bad."

"Not from that." Emma spins around to face the entire group, a look of urgency on her face. "We have six-"

A fist comes into focus, colliding with Emma's jaw and knocking her out. She crumples to the floor. A girl with silver hair in a silver and blue bodysuit stands over Emma, and another woman steps out from behind her, this one in a black bodysuit, with hair matching it, and throwing out orders.

"Jolt, get to the boy. Spur, move the telepath out of range, in case she comes to. Malady, Ruth, Parallel, manage the 'team.'"

[Him. After him.]

A dumping in the Darkforce is disconcerting under normal circumstances, but when you've never encountered it before? It's downright nauseating.

So, one guess as to what he spends his first thirty seconds in there doing?

As soon as he's done throwing up, he looks around for Torrance, pounding his chest.


Re: Hellions #10: See Spot's Gun
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on May 30, 2007, 9:29pm

Spur dodges out of the way quickly enough when Kee'an jumps at her. Super speed will do that. She comes back into focus again, delivering a couple of dozen punches to Kee'an's jaw at about a hundred miles an hour.

It should just about start aching.

Wreck's teleporting trick doesn't work quite as well as he thought it would - it would seem that she was expecting it. She weaves under his arms and shoots him in both hand, and then in the knee.

Emma becomes too heavy for Spur to move, but her attention is elsewhere, anyway.

Torrance 'ports in front of him, armored up, several Darklings perched over her shoulders.

"Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame. "

She slams home in the family jewels with a swift kick, then uppercuts him as he keels over, her Darkblade gauntlet jagged with blades.

"Nobody puts Emma in a corner."

He drops his knees and then looks up at Torrance with his brutally cut face and grins, licking some of the blood away.

He uppercuts her with enough force to knock her up, up and away. She lands a couple of dozen feet away from him.

Black bodysuit girl - who's name is Swathe - looks down with shock, and then starts falling. She has enough sense of mind to grab onto the edge and pulls herself out, but lies there on the floor, pretty much unable to do anything while she's still in shock.

Ruth moves opposite Wreck and looks him in the eyes, the features of her face becoming distorted to her.

"You're angry. Angry enough to shoot all of your team-mates to death."

Oddly enough, Wreck begins to feel that very compulsion.

Spur moves in and lands another couple of dozen blows, really starting to make Kee'an's jaw feel sore. She tries to move out again to gather more speed, but he catches her.

"Hey, no fair! Leggo 'a me, leggo, leggo, leggo!" Imagine the whiny voice of Michelle Tratchtenhoweverthehellyouspellhername.

Sure enough, bones start to crack. Her ribs give way, piercing her right lung and causing it to collapse. Something that becomes apparent after all of the air in that lung is forced out of her mouth, and then she stops being able to breathe.

Torrance, buoyed by the power of her own element, kick flips to a battle stance.

BAMF!
"Hi, Katzen!"
"Hi, Kurt," she lazily waves over her shoulder.
BAMF!

"Good day, child."
"Would you like some help?"
Torrance looks at the nearly naked blonde and her fluttering cape.
"Ty, Tandy. No, I'm cool."

Focusing, several barbed tendrils sprout from her gauntlet, and she rolls forwards, slashing outwards at his midriff while her succubus divebombs from behind, cutlass ablaze in blue fire.

"Comrade."
"Oh, crazy Russian lady," Torrance greets Darkstar, not breaking eye-contact with Jolt. "You I can use, would you mind…?"

Darkstar aids Noir's attack with a Darkforce piano construct, slamming home from above.

He keels over again as his abdomen is cut into, but the piano… well, he just throws it off. He runs at Torrance again - he's faster this time. Covers the ground before she has the chance to react, and delivers a haymaker that throws her back a good thirty feet or so.

Torrance could swear that he's getting stronger.

Thankfully, being in the Darkforce and armored up, Noir isn't taking too much damage.

As she flies back, she wonders why in the hell this guy isn't affected at all. He should be panicked and overwhelmed as the Darkforce fed on his mind.

No big, she shrugs, and as she hurtles back, she opens a small rift back to the real world, and leaves him sealed on the floating island of rock.

And that's pretty much it for Jolt. With no more kinetic energy to absorb, he's not getting any stronger or faster, except from the alternate energy he's absorbing from the Darkforce - not to mention the fact that he's stranded, and has no enemy combatant.

A kick knocks Kelly back.

"Oh… there're traces of it all over you. Someone can't take their emotion very well, can they?" She gathers emotion it from all of the people fighting right now, amplifies it, and drives it into Kelly.

And then she gets smashed in the back of the head, and drops to the floor, unconscious.

Kee'an winds up punching Wreck in the back of the head, knocking him out. What with his superstrength, and all.

Spur's healing up, but the lack of air is still keeping her down.

"We're taking heavy casualties! They're actually winning this! Bertha!" Swathe screams out, pulling a gas mask on and dropping a few smoke grenades over everyone. Gas follows it, knocking everyone on the field except for Swathe out.

[[The Hellions are still being contained in the 'White Room', with a still unconscious Emma Frost lying in the corner.

Not too long ago, Alexander and Kee'an were removed from the White Room, with dampeners placed in effect in the removal. They are now being transported elsewhere in the facility.]]

[[Elsewhere… not the same elsewhere as the Kee'an and Alexander elsewhere. Another elsewhere.]]

A folder is throw onto the desk in front of the woman and hits it with a loud bang.

"We've got the boy back in our custody. He's undergoing the extraction right now, and the DNA structuring sample should be ready for replication and storage in about five minutes. We also ran a quick scan over our new friends. At least four among them fit the requirements. We're transporting two of them right now. It's odd. Each of them fits the bill, but their coding differs on such a basic level-"

The woman behind the desk cuts him off. "That just means that we won't be retracing our steps. It's a good thing. Don't complain."

He quickly regains his composure and presses on. "I'm not. It's just lucky that we-"

She shakes her head and interjects again. "There isn't any such thing as luck, Liam. You would do well to remember that."

He looks away from her with a stifled sigh of exasperation, and then nods. "Yes, quite. Two of them are being transported right now. One has a prime coding, and the other isn't human."

"None of them are human. That's the point."

He shakes his head this time and sits down across the desk from her. "That's not what I meant. He's an alien. Specifically, Shi'ar. We have correlating samples on file. But even among them, his genetic structure is unique."

She archs an eyebrow and then leans back in her chair. "What about the two you haven't removed?"

"Ah, yes. Well, they're more problematic. One accesses an external source for her powers - the Darkforce dimension. The other is a gravity manipulator. I'm sure you know what that means. A contained gravitational field. Any nullification of their powers through the means we possess would lead to disastrous results. In the case of the former, a high scale release of energy from the Darkforce, powerful enough to level this entire complex. In the case of the latter, the gravitational field being released from her influence and allowed free reign. That's fine, if you never really liked this city anyway - it'll be wiped completely off of the map."

She looks to the side and closes her eyes, not responding for a moment. He leans forward. "What do you want to be done with them?"

"A test. Send the Vanguard opposite them again, only without my bodyguards. See if they're worth offering a place here. If they aren't… then it's no loss. The Vanguard will regroup and terminate them. After all, if they haven't been integrated, then no-one lives after seeing Prometheus."

"Man, you've got an energy fist and you can move at superhuman speeds for a bit. Where do you get off calling someone else a freak?"

"Fair point," the first replies as he wheels a similar stretcher along, on which Alexander is bound. "What do the labcoats want these guys for, anyway?"

Liam's obviously in pain. Pretty distressed. He didn't see the attack coming, and that seems to affect his defense. He tries not to fall to his knees, but the vibrations make him topple.

They stop quickly, though, running into Jolt and powering him further.

Wreck's head bounces off of the far wall. His body raises an arm, pats at the stump where it used to be, then topples over.

After a moment of laying there, it dissolves. Wreck pops back up again on top of Jolt's leg…..literally, on top of it, occupying the same space. He should end up fused with the thing, which won't leave anyone feeling very ticklish.

Liam's starting to get used to it, which means that his defenses against it are improving.

That still doesn't change the fact that he's having about a hundred pounds added and subtracted from his crotch.

He hits something on his tie, and starts speaking in a much higher voice than normal.

Spur being a girl, is hurt by the crotch kicking, but not that hurt. She dashes after Jesse, driving her through the adaptive wall. And then through another normal wall. And another. And another. She drops Jesse after slamming her into the closed doors of an elevator.

"That hurt, you miserable bitch!"

Emma takes his hand, wincing as she does.

"It's quite likely that our dear Jesse has just cut us a path."

Swathe loses her arm with a scream, and drops to the floor, unconscious.

Jesse added a few hundred pounds of density to her own body after the adaptive wall crash, so she managed to maintain consciousness through the rest. Still, she's beat up enough that all she can really do is spit a mouthful of blood at Spur before passing out.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 9:43pm

Spur wipes the blood away from her face with a disgusted expression.

"Ew, gross."

"Great girl that Jesse. Always looking out for the team."

I take off down said path, intending to thunder clap at Spur to make up for probably being too slow to tag her physically.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 9:44pm

The thunderclap throws Spur into the steel doors of the elevator, breaking her neck.

Well, I didn't kill the ones I said I would. But this is a start. I pick Jesse up and hit the elevator button. Not in that order.

"Where are we going from here, Emma?"

«If he seems pretty indifferent about it, keep in mind how often I have him attempt to run through or cut people in half.»

She's pretty out of it, though when coming to Jesse will appreciate the ride.

[Don't worry. She isn't dead. This is the same person who had her lung collapse in the last fight, and is still up and fighting now.

You guessed it. She has a healing factor.]

"Straight up. They won't follow; they can't risk implicating themselves. She was actually arrogant enough to place this directly beneath their offices, the silly cow." She takes in Alexander's confused look.

"Prometheus Tech. I take it you haven't heard of them. Don't worry, I'll fill you in later, dear."

A couple of dozen blows strike Alexander in the back, more irritating than anything else, but they start to increase in speed and force.

Malady, Swathe and Ruth are down. Parallel is dead.

Spur and Jolt are still up, and Jolt catches up with them, slamming Kee'an's head into a wall.

Shifting balance a little to hold Jesse with one hand I blindly backhand the source of the blows.

"Can you not see that I'm holding somebody?"

Spur crumples… her neck snapped. Again.

Wreck tries to dissolve Swathe's other arm. If he had to reenact the battle with the Black Knight, he was fully prepared to.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 9:56pm

Slightly frenzied, Jolt pushes forwards and slams both of his fists into Alexander's back.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 9:58pm

Both of Swathe's arms are gone. The question remains, why is Wreck torturing someone who's unconscious?


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Jun 1, 2007, 9:59pm

I set Jesse down as gently as possible, which isn't very, considering the tumble I was in the process of taking. Getting legitimately angry now, I get up and punch Jolt in the throat.

"I said can you not see that I'm holding somebody?"


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 10:01pm

He takes the blow, getting stronger, faster and more durable for it, but he's kind of having a hard time breathing.

"Not letting you get out. Kill you!" Is what he would say in his semi frenzy. If he could speak right now. Or breathe.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Jesse "Masstress" Buchanon on Jun 1, 2007, 10:01pm

The little tumble wakes Jesse up, just in time for her to spit some old blood into Jolt's eyes. While he's distracted, she'll go to weigh down her unconscious teammates and drag them to the elevator.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 10:03pm

Jesse gets all of her unconscious team-mates into the elevator safely while Jolt struggles to see. Emma turns to face Jolt.

"This has gone on far too long." She goes to shut him down telepathically… but nothing comes. Must be that pesky little concussion.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Jun 1, 2007, 10:05pm

"Right, right, kill me. Maybe next time."

I leap onto Jolt, once again trying to choke the bastard. Hit him too many times and he'll be stronger than I am. Assuming he isn't already.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 10:07pm

He is, but that doesn't mean much when he can't get the oxygen to apply the strength. He passes out fairly quickly under the chokehold.

"I hope you aren't planning on killing an unconscious enemy, dear," Emma states, looking at Cadmus with a raised eyebrow, and then motioning to the elevator.

Post by Jesse "Masstress" Buchanon on Jun 1, 2007, 10:07pm

"Aw come on, Skirt. Time to go bye byes."

The ceiling begins gaining weight, it can be heard cracking and warping as she prepares to bring it down when Cadmus comes to the elevator.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Jun 1, 2007, 10:09pm

I look at Jolt for a moment. It would be so easy and make sure he's never a problem again. I sigh heavily.

"No, I suppose not."

I get into the elevator.


Re: Hellions #10: Promethean Dawn - See Spot's Gu
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jun 1, 2007, 10:10pm

Spur comes to, and rushes the elevator when the ceiling collapses.

"Darn it!"

The elevator ride is torturously long. With Aerosmith play. A musak version of 'Don't Wanna Miss a Thing.'

No, no, it gets worse. It changes to a musak version of My Chemical Romance's 'I'm Not Okay.'

Jesse's a girl, so she likes My Chemical Romance. She's had a long day, and falls asleep leaning against Cadmus while humming along.

The elevator reaches the top (finally!) and opens out to a mundane, but packed office. Everyone in it turns to stare at the alien, the (sleeping) girl who's spitting blood, the man in a skirt, the person with teeth for eyes, and the half naked woman.

I stand around with an arm around Jesse to make sure she doesn't fall over, staring right back at the office full of people.

"What are you looking at?"

Atlas roars and the heavens part.

Not really, but the office workers kind of scramble away, afraid, and leave a clear path to the exit.
