Whether I make it is iffy. I'm heading down to school to wait roughly a thousand years in line to pick up my loan <_<. Though I'm going to try to head there earlyish and if I get out at a decent time I'll swing by the computer lab for the mission.

[Okie dokie, starting this now. I'll be running this like a training mission, where absolutely anyone is free to pop up with any character they like. If it makes no sense, remember….it's Impy still toting around the Gauntlet. It doesn't have to :P]

The Hellions find themselves rather abruptly standing in a typical colosseum. Hordes of screaming fans line the bleachers, and in the center, stands….a very short and grumpy Satyr. Who sounds exactly like Danny Devito.

He turns to face them.

"Huh? Who're you? Ah, doesn't matter. We've randomly lost half of our contestants and no one's left to even go through to the final round. What do you say, want to win fortune and glory? I can't believe I'm doing this. You all are no heroes. You'll be killed."

Before anyone can respond, Impossible Man is already out in front, shaking Phil's hand.

"Hi, good to meet you, I'm Impy. They all accept. They aren't scared of dying, right? Right. Good."

"…What form of trickery is this?"

Larry stands tall, with his sledgehammer in one hand, and a Scotsman in the other. He drops the Scotsman to the ground, not seeming to care as he runs off to freedom.

"By the Lords of Asgard, someone explain!"

"Afraid isn't the right word, but opposed to dying arbitrarily is more on the money." I say while looking around and breathing in the air. Not quite home, really. But close.

[I hate you with the fire of a thousand suns, Seph]

Impy disappears, reappearing on Larry's shoulder.

"Explanation is, I need recruits and you came to mind. Nice hammer."

Off again, landing on Cadmus. He holds up the lamp shard, which seems to be glowing fiercely.

"And this thing is shining like a Christmas tree on St. Patrick's Day, so I think what we're looking for is here. The prize for winning this game, right? Am I right? Say I'm right."

A bit away, Phil merely holds his head and sighs.

"You're right. I don't even know what the thing is supposed to do, but if you win, you're welcome to it. Have a bit of a hard road, though. Herc's already in the finals and you're playing catchup."

Acantha [she’s called Acantha now, because when I pulled my character from Amy’s old RPG into Exiles, there’s a Kayla there, and that’s just irritating, even if this one only lasts this arc :P] is very tempted to poke Phil to see if he’s real.

"You… you have horns!"

Somehow she fails to notice his lower body.

Her eyes drop down onto the hoofs, and she glances away, more than a little bemused.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 12:30pm

"Yes, yes I HEY!"

Phil throws himself on the ground, as an arrow sails through the air (though the trajectory was way too high to even have a chance of hitting him). It zips past Kay…..Acantha's face, bouncing off of Larry's hammer.

From out of the far entryway steps a man in a toga, who for some strange reason is wearing an abnormal amount of armor around his right foot. He notches up another arrow, lining up another shot aimed for Larry's chest.

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 27, 2007, 12:32pm

SG does some acrobatics towards the guy sending a kick to his chest.

Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Aug 27, 2007, 12:33pm

"Smite, is it?" I say loading an arrow into my own bow and firing at Achilles', apparently, chest. Mainly to distrupt his shot. "Introduce your hammer to his ankle. The armored one."


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Pester on Aug 27, 2007, 12:33pm

Larry recognizes the man with the armor around his foot… But says nothing. He grins, as he knows this villain shall supply him with the valiant battle Larry's been trying to find for the last few weeks. He lifts his hammer in front of his face, and charges forward.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 12:34pm

Acantha looks down at her hands and then gestures wildly at the archer, a little panicked.

"Rukh joa!"

Nothing happens. She gestures again and calls out;

"Stop?"

A tumbleweed rolls by.

Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 12:36pm

The kick manages to hurt Squirrel Girl's foot more than the guy. She bounces off and lands in the dirt.

Cadmus doesn't get a shot off before he's tackled from behind by a lion. Except it has wings, a thrashing snake tail and seems to be breathing fire. The creature attempts to eat the back of his head.

Achilles is about to step on Squirrel Girl, when he sees Larry coming. Instead, he merely smirks, waiting for him to charge in.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 12:37pm

Acantha picks up a rock and throws it at Achilles.

Larry lets off a manly growl, as he swings his hammer upwards at Achilles' chin. None of that "weak spot" exploitation for him.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 27, 2007, 12:40pm

Tippy Toe hopped off Larry's head and tried Archille's his nose. at the same time.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Aug 27, 2007, 12:43pm

This is a less than ideal situation. I've got a giant I'm-not-sure-what* on my back gnawing at the back of my helmet. Not sure how long it will take before it either chews through it or realizes that the helmet comes off so there's no reason to dawdle. I roll over, taking the arrow in my hand that I never got to fire and poking it in the thing's neck.

[[*Because he was attacked from behind and never got to see it, not because he doesn't recognize it.]]


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 12:43pm

Achilles takes the hammer right on the chin. It doesn't seem to phase him much. Actually, the squirrel phases him more, as he stares crosseyed at it and tries to shoo it away.

Acantha's rock bounces off of his chest. Before she gets a chance to throw another, a blinding light shines into her face from a nearby reflective surface.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 12:45pm

Acantha flails aimlessly in the direction of the light.

"Ah! Witchcraft! Get it away, get it away, get it away!"


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 12:46pm

The chimera lets out a rather awful squeal, thrashing away and narrowly managing to avoid getting itself impaled by the arrow. It backs off, rears back and pounces again for Cadmus.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 27, 2007, 12:46pm

"Atta girl!"

Squirrel Girl dazzles the crowd with her amazing squirrel agility aiming a slash or two at Archilles back using her amazing squirrel claws.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Pester on Aug 27, 2007, 12:48pm

Larry sighs, somewhat annoyed at apparently being lower on the list of danger than a squirrel. And a female squirrel, at that.

He winds up his hammer while Achilles is hopefully not paying attention, and swings at his heel. Screw honor. Once a squirrel is more dangerous than you, just end the fight.

The next thing Acantha feels is the hilt of a sword clonking her very hard on top of the head.

"Sorry."

Achilles turns and boots Squirrel Girl in the stomach, more in annoyance than anything. And thus isn't paying much attention at all to the hammer, which manages to smash the armor surrounding his foot. He looks at it quizzically, then stoops down and tries to repair his steel shoe.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 12:51pm

Acantha drops to the floor with an odd little slump, a red flashing in her eyes before they roll into the back of her head.

Tippy Toe moves up to his hair and starts biting and pulling on it, while Squirrel Girl gets knocked down again.

"Oof…. Rough N Tough guy ain't he?"


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Aug 27, 2007, 12:52pm

Standing now, in a better position. I advance. Just as the Chimera comes in for me, I lunge forward as well, attempting to get inside the span of his forelegs and claws and slashing at his belly with the sword that I have the mobility required to actually grab this time around.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 12:55pm

As fierce as it may be, the Chimera isn't terribly bright and leaves itself wide open as it leaps. The sword chops its belly open, and it lands on the ground in front of Cadmus, still trying valiantly to bite his ankles.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Pester on Aug 27, 2007, 12:56pm

Larry jumps on his opponent's back, (Staying clear of Tippy Toe. He does not need to crush a valiant warrior, even if she is stealing his spotlight), and puts the hammer handle against Achille's windpipe. He pulls back on the hammer hard, attempting to choke him out.

«I may bail suddenly. I had a couple fajitas that are outright rebelling against me. I fear they'll take the fast track to San Fran, and bring me along for the ride.»


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 12:57pm

Acantha comes to alarmingly quickly, and sits on the floor, taking a moment to get her bearings. And then another to register what happened. And then another to remember why she’s here.

"HEY! Who hit me?"

[Because I have a feeling DC would kill me if I dropped out of the mission via K.O. this soon :P.]


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Aug 27, 2007, 1:00pm

I put my blade through the Chimera's head. No need to let the creature suffer.

I then look around, guaging the other threat, unsure yet if I'm needed.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 1:01pm

Impy meanwhile has disturbingly enough formed a line of cheerleaders, all made of copies of himself. They cheer the Hellions on, swishing their pompoms.

Achilles stops his futile attempts to piece his armor long enough to grab Larry and toss him overhead, into the nearest wall. Tippy Toe meanwhile is hurting her teeth on her opponent's head.

Perseus was about to assist the Chimera with Cadmus, when he notices Acantha getting up again.

"….you should stay down."

He tries to hit her again with the butt of his sword.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 1:03pm

A purple wave rushes from Acantha to Perseus.

"… weird. You shouldn’t hit girls!"

Then she notices him bringing the butt of his sword down again and makes a panicked dive to try and get out of the way.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Aug 27, 2007, 1:05pm

"Tippy Toe! Blind him."

Tippy Toe goes to use her body to cover Archilles eyes, while Squirrel girl launches another assault of blows behind him.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 1:09pm

Squirrel Girl still isn't managing to do much harm to Achilles. Tippy Toe is doing a decent job of blinding him, until he reaches up, pulls the poor squirrel off and throws her at SG.

Perseus manages to whiff with his sword. He shakes his head, then apparently decides to completely ignore Acantha and go after Cadmus instead.

Acantha glares at Perseus and throws some sand from the coliseum floor at his eyes.

Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 1:13pm

Perseus turns around just in time to get rammed in the chest and knocked completely end over end. He lands on his face, but a second later, raises his reflective shield and redirects sunlight into the eyes of Cadmus.

Achilles seems about to say something, when his words turn into a shout of pain as a gigantic hook tears into his foot. The next thing Squirrel Girl sees is….

[image]

…..yes.

"THE GODS SHALL FALL!", the pasty man shouts, swinging his hooks in all directions.

A bit away, Impy shrugs.

"You looked like you needed help."

I lower my head behind my shield and charge where I saw him last, going on hearing in case he moves. I go for a combined sheild ram and slash in the area of his thigh. Ideally, he can only use his shield to buffer the ram or block the sword strike and not both.

"We fight."

Dual assault Tippey Toe and Squirrel Girl the Dynamic duo!

Squirrel girl nimbly leaps out of the way of the blades trying to scratch one side of Kratos.

Tippy Toe the other by biting.

"You evil evil man!"


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 1:26pm

Perseus is so distracted by Kratos bellowing like a maniac that he doesn't manage to block much of either. He ends up rammed by the shield and loses a good chunk of his leg to the sword, falling to one knee.

Kratos turns around and wraps one of his chains around Larry's hammer, attempting to tug him closer for an impalement, only to growl in annoyance as the twin terrors bite and scratch at him.

Meanwhile, the air seems to distort at the far side of the arena, where a podium has been set up for the eventual winners.

Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 1:28pm

"Fighting works, I guess… he looks like he’s on our side, though…."

Acantha picks up some more sand and throws it at Kratos' eyes.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Pester on Aug 27, 2007, 1:28pm

Larry clutches onto the hammer for a moment, keeping his feet grounded strong. As soon as Kratos gives the chain a strong, firm tug, he'll release the hammer completely, trying to aim it at the God Killer's head.

The hammer connects, smacking Kratos in the head and knocking him all the way back to the podium, which crumbles into pieces. A trophy which had been resting on top of it falls to the ground, and immediately shifts into….you guessed it, a fragment of the lamp.

Unfortunately, the distortion then takes shape into the form of Jafar, who calmly floats toward it.

"You children are so annoying. I'll take my prize now."

The pale guy looks attention worthy. Still, there's the small matter of the bleeding out Greek hero. Stepping behind him, I put my fists together and club him down the back of his head, hoping for a knock out.

Post by Kelly Alecia "Star Girl" Lisa on Aug 27, 2007, 1:38pm

[Name's Hades, Lord of the dead. Hi, how ya doin'?]

Acantha’s expression goes blank when Jafar turns up and a very large, very red anvil drops from the air onto him. A little confused as to why she feels the need to do this, she runs and hides behind Cadmus.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 1:41pm

The blow knocks Perseus down and out.

Jafar unfortunately is much closer to the shard than Squirrel Girl. He reaches out for it….and is distracted momentarily by an anvil landing on his head. She snatches it up first.

Scant seconds later, the anvil explodes. He calmly holds his hand out to SG.

"Give it to me. Pretty please?"

I try to get between Squirrel Girl and Jafar and unload a thunderclap. More than anything else, to give her more lead time on getting the shard away.

~Acantha~

I kick up lots and lots of sand at the evil guy.

I can’t help but feel a little useless here. Oh well. I kick up some more.

Jafar ignores the clap, shaking his head.

"Oh, fine, be that way. I'll just have to destroy your world, then."

And in the blink of an eye, the Hellions find themselves standing outside of their bus. A moment later, a horrible and maniacal laugh tears through the horizon, as Jafar emerges. Back into his usual form of a really, really big and red genie.

"Now then….you. Come here."

He gestures to Acantha, who flies through the air and lands in his palm.

The squirrels begin tearing over the horizon, like a plague of locusts, surrounding the Hellions and Jafar on all sides.

Then, they all stop at once, staring up at Jafar. Seem to converse for a moment, before folding their squirrel paws and doing nothing. Squirrels aren't stupid.

Jafar merely looks at the sword blankly.

"You can't hurt me. You ARE me. Or at least the bit that got away from me. Something I'll remedy now. And then I won't even need the fragment."

Acantha begins fading in and out of view, as Jafar cackles. Meanwhile, the squirrels begrudgingly start moving in on him, but they don't seem very enthusiastic.

She gives her shard to Tippy Toe, at least she can blend in with the legion of squirrels, while she tries grabbing Acantha away from the Genie before she faded out.

"Thou shalt be smitten!"

Larry cups his hands and digs them into the sand. He uses his epic god powers (Or is it just retard strength? I'll never tell…) to create a sand tidal wave, at the villain.

Well this is retarded, but pretty much any attack against phenomenal cosmic power is pretty retarded so it doesn't matter much. I do one of my patented (and by that I mean ripped off from the Hulk) long jumps, launching myself into the genie's chest. Where I try to stab him with both swords and go mountain climbing up him with them.

Yeah. Retarded.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV

The sky seems to darken. The assorted Hellions start feeling as if something very, very big is watching them. Watching them and not very pleased.

"He's getting stronger the more he eats the weird girl," Impy says, having shrunken himself enough to ride on the back of Tippy Toe. "That's bad. But that's good. But that's bad. Just hold him off for a second. AND DON'T LET HIM EAT THE WEIRD GIRL!"

Off he disappears.

Jafar pauses in his devouring of Acantha long enough to pluck up Cadmus with his free hand. He eyes him for a moment, before slowly crushing him in his palm.

The sand manages to greatly irritate Jafar's massively sandaled feet. Then Larry finds himself tackled to the ground by Kratos, who tries to put a hook through his head.

"DIE GODLING DIE!"

"FOOL! THIS IS ONE GOD THINE POWER SHALT FAIL AGAINST!" Larry bellows, as he brings his knee into Kratos' two magic lamps, and one rolled up carpet.

This brings back unpleasant memories of being similarly crushed by a gigantic zombie. Though, all in all, I prefer the zombie. Can only barely breathe, can only barely move. Going nowhere fast. I give a shot at cutting my way out of his fist.


Re: The Hellions #21 – Interlude IV
Post by Wreck on Aug 27, 2007, 2:14pm

Jafar lightly blows a bit of wind at Squirrel Girl, which manages to knock her all the way back to the bus.

Cadmus manages to slice straight through Jafar's hand. Which gives him room to move again, but it seems to be healing up just as fast as he cuts it.

Kratos may be a mighty warrior, but he just got kicked in his mighty nuts. His ranting stops as he tumbles off of Larry, clutching himself.

From above, the source of the sky darkening is revealed, as what looks like a huge, golden hand is steadily moving toward them. If anyone looked up, they might see a three sided face, though the details are a bit hard to make out, due to how HUGE the damn thing is.

Larry summons back his mighty hammer

"Though thine may deserve this pain, let there be none that say Smite is without mercy."

The mighty Smite, grasps his mighty hammer, and gives Kratos a mighty conk on the head to knock him out.

He then looks up.

"By the gods…"

I hack.

I hack.

I hack.

I hack more. Relentlessly. It's about getting out and pulling Jafar's attention away from the girl. Then I see the face. Faces. I see the faces.

"By Ares spear…"

Squirrel gets up groaning looking up.

The hand seems to be drawing closer in an exact cadence with Acantha's fading in and out. The more she fades, the closer it comes. Jafar, who seemed to have been enjoying himself too much to even pay much attention to this, finally looks up and snarls.

"Even you're too late! I…I….eh?"

He blinks. Then wails in agony as what looks like a whirlpool of sand forms beneath him. He begins spinning faster and faster, and somewhere in the midst of this, both Acantha and Cadmus sail out of his grasp, landing on each other with a thud.

Jafar makes one last effort to pull himself free of the whirlpool, grabbing the sides of the land. But it proves in vain, as with a mournful cry, he sinks and vanishes, as if he were never there.

As soon as he does, the hand stops moving. The faces look on…..before retreating, moving away into the nothing they came from.

Moments later, the entire landscape fades, reforming into a complete blank. White all around, with only the Hellions and Impy still there.

"Sorry about all of that. See, I really couldn't do much with the big three-face watching me. He has three faces. How do you STOP him from watching you? Anyway, when Jafar started eating weird girl, he was gaining enough power that Three-Face would have had to step in and stop it. Which you all saw. Anyway, while he was busy doing THAT, I hopped back and dragged his goofy butt back to Disney. Pardon the pun. Sort of dangerous….okay, it could have resulted in the Tribunal nuking reality if I slipped up….but it worked, right? Right!?"

Impy smiles. Then his smile fades into a a depressed look, as he hangs his head.

"…..sorry."

And the Hellions find themselves standing next to the bus (minus Larry and Kratos) again. Hulk leans against it, along with Kelly.

"Sorry."

And, Impy disappears.

Anyway, thanks again, DC, you were a godsend.]
