A night's respite would be nice.

Just a short night, free of dreams - nightmares, rather - portents and omens she never asked for. Ones that ring on into her head even as she makes her way into the realm of the conscious perception, leaving the nightmare world behind.

Laynia doesn't get her wish. This time, though, instead of Nightmare allowing her to escape, her accord with another realm of fear allowed her to escape under her own will.

As her eyes snap open, her breath grows shallow, and her panicked glance flits across the room. Unable to stay there, she darts out of her room into the well-lit hallway. Her thoughts finally becoming coherent, she divined some of what she saw, and, still somewhat panicked, attempts to get the rest to gather in the seating area through a P.A. message.

Laynia waits in the lower seats for everyone else, shivering involuntarily - in fact, she hasn't even realised that she has yet to stop.

She winces slightly.

"Not other than Nightmare. He's here… lingering on the edges of all of our dreamscapes… he said that he's waiting, but he didn't say what for… He's staying here. Right there in front of us… he came again this night, and he's going to do something soon - attack, something, anything - but I don't know what…"

She looks up as if snapping out of a trance.

"Is everyone here? Is everyone alright?"

[On candystripe legs the spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
Suddenly!
A movement in the corner of the room!
And there is nothing I can do
And I realise with fright
That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are around me and his tongue in my eyes
"Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don't struggle like that or I will only love you more"
But it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight

And I feel like I'm being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning I will wake up
In the shivering cold

The spiderman is always hungry…]

I stumble out of my room, half awake, to go to the restroom.

"Bruce isn't here…"

He would be the first there. She knows him well enough to know that. He's a light sleeper, and he was stressed enough as it is with Nightmare around and the Man-Thing, too…

He had his concerns about Nightmare, and his ambitions, especially considering his prior encounters with the fear lord, and Nightmare alluded to something similar when he assailed Laynia again.

"He's after the Hulk… Nightmare, he's after the Hulk…"

She darts for Banner's room.

"Nightmare is a fear demon who has dominion over the realm of nightmares and has been lingering here for the past day. Bruce thought that it was because of a conflict between Nightmare and the Man-Thing, who appeared a day ago, too. He was wrong… the Man-Thing must have been drawn here by Nightmare’s presence, and Nightmare isn’t here to fight the Man-Thing… he’s here because he wants the Hulk," Laynia blurts out before heading for Banner’s room.

When they get to Banner's room, they notice that the door is jarred open slightly.

Laynia bursts into the room, knocking the door wide open so that the Hellions can see clearly into it, where Banner is lying in his bed asleep, and a strange figure stands over the bed.

"Caseland. Welcome to the party. I figure you'll be regretting it within the next ten minutes, if you aren't already."

He turns slowly to Wreck, actually seeming a little surprised at being interrupted.

"Oh, your fears are particularly prominent… however, it's not you I'm here for." He nods at Darya. "The girl is right. Unfortunately, I'm somewhat otherwise occupied…" he gestures at Banner before a smirk creeps slowly over his face; "… dealing with my dear friend here. It would be terribly rude of me to ignore you, though… it simply isn't done. What sort of guest would that make me?"

A sterner look sets on his face and he stands side on, his head cocked back, staring at the Hellions.

"But Banner is far more important. He is particularly weak right now. I had to capture him in his dreams - his nightmare - to get the chance to take what I want; the Hulk's raw power."

Nightmare takes a step back and looks at Banner mournfully.

"Unfortunately, I'm not quite done assimilating him into my world, due to the intricacies of his uniquely fractured mind…"

"That's true," he says to Wreck, sighing sorrowfully. "And as a result, I can't trust you not to interfere, can I, my precious, fearful little Hellions?"

He glances briefly at Darya before looking back at Banner, running a hand through his hair.

"That just isn't going to happen, girl."

The bullet dissolves before it hits him.

"I may be diminished in capacity in this realm, but I am far from that feeble. I suppose the assumption that you won't leave me to my own matters was an accurate one… And since I cannot spare the concentration to deal with you directly, until I am done with our friend here, there's really only one way to deal with you, my little Hellions. A pity. I would have liked to look at you all a little more personally."

He turns his back to Banner and snaps his fingers, a well of energy falling in on itself over and over again before continually inverting itself opening up underneath them. The Hellions find themselves falling… falling… falling, down the rabbit hole…

Until they land with a very noticable bump and a thud, on a seemingly endless landscape that, on closer examination, is much more constrictive than it seems. Even though they've never been aware of it, each of them have been there before, and they can't help but know where they are.

The realm of the dream-walkers.

Also I see if this whole "being in dreamland" thing can be worked at least minorly to my advantage by willing some clothes on. My armor, ideally.

[Now… we have a choice. This seems very, very early to cut it off for the mid mission break - I have a tendency to put it somewhere where they could kind of social between the mission - but it seems to be the best place to cut to that sort of break. I'm perfectly fine with going on to a stage where it's more appropriate to take a break, in regards to progression, though. Which would you prefer?

And I forgot that, yeah. I meant to put in that Alex turns up, full armour and equipment, as does anyone else who's lacking anything they need.]

Before the Hellions have enough time to become too accustomed to their new surroundings, some of the natural inhabitants of the 'scape come sniffing out of the refuge they ran to when the Hellions first appeared.

As soon as they feel less threatened by the Hellions (which is now), the inhabitants charge at them to defend their territorty. The large, shaggy, shadow-like wolves rush the Hellions ferociously.

With the wall of air down, a wolf charges straight at Alexander. An arrow goes into its throat and it drops to the floor.

Unfortunately, that's not quite the end of the matter on it. The shadow that the neck is constituted of distorts and the arrow falls out of it. The wolf snarls and rises again, charging Alexander once again and trying to seize his throat in between its jaws.

Another wolf jumps straight at Casey with its forepaw out, trying to slash Casey across the chest.

Another bites Darya's thigh.

One last one throws itself stupidly at Wreck's field and dissipates.

The wolf that bites Darya gets whipped back down again. It deftly avoids the next whip and its fur seems to slide off of it, leaving it the same beneath it, but slightly smaller.

The shadow of the fur envelops Darya.

The wolf that Alexander grabs is certainly stronger than it seems, and struggles against him, almost gaining the upperhand for a moment.

It proves to be a futile effort. The wolf gives a shudder and drops to the floor.

I turn from the wolf I've dealt with and look around for more. Ideally, the alpha leading the pack. Kill that, maybe the others think better of continuing.

The remaining wolves start dropping like flies as Darya picks them off. Just as Alexander turns to the alpha wolf that's using Wreck as a chew toy, Darya picks it off, stealing both Alexander and Wreck's kill.

The shadow from their corpses scatters, returning to the landscape, and the corpses disperse.

The path and the environment become more and more crystalline as the Hellions move further into the dimension.

It gets to a point where they’re surrounded by jagged crystals rising from the floor, jutting out of the walls that seem to have appeared out of nowhere, and jutting out of the ‘ceiling’.

In the centre of the area a blonde girl* staggers back from a pack of the shadow wolves. They leap at her and she disappears. Suddenly, they seem to randomly shatter and splinter before falling to the ground. She reappears in front of the corpses, and the same thing happens to the corpses as happened when the Hellions killed some.

The girl’s more than a little on edge. She spins around to face the Hellions, taken completely by surprise by their appearance. A step back leads to her almost tripping over a crystal. She manages to stablise herself and bares her teeth at them threateningly.

The bullets are easily deflected by Doc Octopus' shadow tentacles, except for a few which Electro magnetises, and sends straight back at Darya.

Wreck tries to yell for help, but it ends up coming out more like "gababamachooa." So instead he settles for trying to shoot himself in the head.

Jesse tries to weigh down the ceiling above Wreck, hoping to drop enough on his body to completely pulverize him, so the shadow thing has to leave.

Darya unravels her body, turning into string form and spreads out, hopfully making her less of a target to the bullets.

"Are you having fun?" An imposed image of Nightmare appears, one who casts a glance at the warped villains assailing the Hellions.

The ceiling collapses on Wreck, killing him again, but the shadow really is just that - shadow. It's still there, and all Jesse's managed is to flatten Wreck. A tentacle slaps her across the face.

Darya avoids the bullets, but Carnage dashes forwards, forming a blade from his arm and slashing at her.

"Meat fist."

Roughly translated, "eat this". Wreck forms a field around himself, then draws it in, obliterating himself and hopefully the shadow too.

Darya moves herself to wrap around Carnage's blade arm, trying to apply pressure to dislocate the joint.

Her string form also loops around her gun, and tries shooting Carnage from behind.


Re: The Hellions #16 - Promethean Scream I
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 9, 2007, 1:31pm

There's not very much to dislocate when the opponent is so fluid. Nor to shoot when the 'skin' just absorbs and spits out the bullets. But she distracts him long enough for him to lose concentration on the blade.

Off it comes!

A particularly spectacular spurt of blue blood sprays all over Wreck and Darya as Doctor Octopus shrieks in pain. His tentacles whip around, trying to tear into Wreck, but their ends splinter slightly when they connect with him.

[And it just occurred to me that you might have meant his tentacles.]

The weight of his nose causes Electro's neck to snap.

The bullets are particularly effective at killing Doctor Octopus while he's destracted by the fact that his arms were just torn off.

However, Carnage is still around, and he whips around, plunging a fist into Wreck's chest.

~ The Bus ~

"Don’t shake so much… don’t quiver so much… don’t struggle so much, Darkforce cow. I have need of your abilities… it’s the last that he touched. The Darkforce… so I need to enter it," Nightmare drawls.

Laynia kicks out at him, the kick passing through his form as it loses all tangibility. The attempt does nothing but earn her a frown.

"I don’t have time for your games, you stupid woman." A hand closes around her neck and he slams her into the wall. "If you won’t aid me willingly… well, I have ways of making people like you do what I want."

~ The Darkforce Dimension ~

Nightmare appears in the Darkforce dimension and shuts his eyes, concentration outwards… searching. His eyes snap open, and with a smirk, he disappears again, reappearing in front of the Dweller in the Darkness with a proud flourish.

"Dweller. Hm… how fitting. Look what you’ve reduced yourself to. Hiding in the dank corners of something as pitiful and degrading as the Darkforce dimension…. Do you remember the glory you used to be held to? The pure terror the simple mention of your name would invoke? You probably don’t. Look at yourself… robot body. The great Dweller in the Darkness."

The Dweller stirs slowly, but only enough to look at Nightmare.

"You wish to obtain my aid, I assume."

"Shouldn’t. When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me."

A rumble that comes close to sounding like a sigh comes from the Dweller in the Darkness.

"You’re time among humans has caused you to develop a particularly irritating sense of ‘humour’, Nightmare. It is ill appreciated. And I know that you are here for aid, for there would be little other reason for you to be here…. Will you ask of me what you will, or would you continue to offend me in this manner?"

Nightmare slows in his strides and hesitates before speaking again.

"As you wish, Fear Lord." He bows low before the Dweller, raising his head to look at him with a raised eyebrow. "That is, after all, what you were, was it not? Is it not what you would again be? The mortal world… it is terrified of many things. It fears age. It fears change. It fears the different, and it fears death. Most of all, it fears itself. It has been too long since humans feared fear itself… and we would have it do so once again. Would you?"

He rises from his bowed state, looking the Dweller in the eyes.

"Join us. The Fear Lords… we were once great, individually. We will be great again… but this time, we will also find strength in each other. We have returned the Straw Man. We have Nox and the Lurking Unknown. D’spayre is in your employ, and it is only a matter of time before we find the other. Would you join us, and be once again great? Truly mighty? Feared?"

Nothing but silence comes from the Dweller for a moment. When he finally opens his mouth to speak, a rumbling precedes the words.

"To become as I am… to become the Dweller… I faced many terrible trials, and overcame them all. I would only be able to join one with acumen and ability enough to pass trials of similar form. Those were the trials of then. I wonder… can you pass my trials… the trials of now? "

Savage Hulk’s legs start melting away, but unlike the Grey Hulk, he’s actually awake. And angry. The legs heal back even faster than they melt. But like the Grey Hulk, Wreck and Jesse's efforts distract him long enough for Banner Hulk to knock him out with a punch that sends him clear through the crystal ceiling, and out of sight.

"That’s me spent…"

Kiden reappears.

"We’re almost out of here. We just keep on going on ahead… there’s that wraith thing at the exit, and then we’re free!"

"I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be anywhere but here. This place-" she disappears "- is only –" again "- good for-" again "- the crystals." When she finally stays in place, she’s carrying a load of crystals.

"Just through here," she shouts, running straight until the crystal ‘corridor’ expands into a circular crystalline, yet shadowed, room, with hole in the wall opposite them, and a large cloaked wraith guarding it, rather reminiscent of the Nazgul.

"That thing! That thing!"

It drifts towards them silently, slow, steady, shadowy tendrils trailing out of its cloak with every ‘step’, and as it gets closer and closer, the air it draws along with it seems enough to inspire fear…

Kiden throws the crystals at it to cut the effect off, and throw it off guard.

"We need to get past it!"

The bullet doesn’t kill it, but when the crystals hit it, something flickers – like everything going negative for a moment, and it flashes, appearing as a skeleton.

As it is, the bullet wounds it, and a sucking, winding moan escapes its mouth… or what passes for one.

Once they get through the hole, they find themselves back where they started the night, sans Kiden… and Nightmare is still by Banner’s side. He lifts his head, looking at the Hellions with a sneer and a snarl, and looks mournfully at Banner once more before looking back at them.
