Apr 29 18:01:55 <gumbal1> «Attention, would the following students report to the briefing room: Andrey Maijala, Jasmine Jacinto, Annora…does she even have a last-oh shoot, this thing's still on. Whatever. To the briefing room.»
Apr 29 18:03:16 <Nemi> Huh, to the briefing room. That's- it's been a while, hadn't it? Andrey needed a good distraction, and so it's time to hang up the guitar for now and stroll on down to see what's what.
Apr 29 18:03:45 <EndPhone> \I really need to see about changing the name on the records to one that doesn't sound stupid\ Jinx thinks to herself as she heads down. But she was honestly excited. Some of these missions were amazing fun, she's heard.
Apr 29 18:04:03 <Defined> Annora startled from the cafe "Wait..That's me.." She rummages in the sachet around her shoulder, pulling out a map of the school. She hasn't a clue what's up with the briefing room. So off she goes, head buried in the map.
Apr 29 18:05:57 <gumbal1> In the briefing room is one Dr. Renee Bolton, along with a stack of folders. "Thank you all for coming. Now, I believe I should explain why I brought you here. There is a…situation, going on, involving a teenager named Toni Trussardi. This school had meant to recruit them," Bolton takes one of the folders, passing it to the others. "Though we have run into a bit of dificulty, considering that they are currently in the custody of a group know
Apr 29 18:05:57 <gumbal1> n as Buenos Noches, consisting of three anomalous humans and one nonhuman." Another folder is passed over to the others.
Apr 29 18:08:55 <Nemi> Andrey, who's not met the other two (huh, kinda goth witchy look there, and .. teeny tiny winged girl. Aww.), peers at them before taking the folder and having a looksy-loo. Andrey's a very tall blonde with Nordic features and an apparent high degree of physical fitness. In shorts and a hoodie, when it's almost December. Andrey'll peer in the folder. "Uh, thanks.. Okay, so, rude
Apr 29 18:08:55 <Nemi> dudes."
Apr 29 18:09:38 <Defined> "Okay then..so.." Annora is curled up on a seat, wings curled around her nervously "So..um..why am I here?"
Apr 29 18:10:22 <Nemi> "Yah, uh, where do we come in?" Andrey's got that vaguely purring, rolling and funnily enunciated accent too.
Apr 29 18:10:33 <EndPhone> "Because they want us to do something with our powers. This mission sounds kinda boring, though…"
Apr 29 18:10:41 <gumbal1> Toni, according to the file, is a short, blonde teenager that you honestly might not have been able to pick out of a crowd. Buenos Noches, on the other hand, at least from the pictures in their files, are all rather distinct. Their leader, Bradley Cameron (who is allegedly a former occultist to some entity known as Orvo), is a tan man with a pompadour and full-beard. Their next senior member, Lyanna Fitzroy (who the file alledges is a technopa
Apr 29 18:10:41 <gumbal1> th), is tall, with broad shoulders, a strong jawline, and hair inexplicably dyed pink. The next member, Mitsuru Miyamoto (which the file knotes that their anomaly is not particularly known), is an androgynous looking blond with heavy bags under their eyes. The last member is noted to be recent, and that there is not much information about them, other than the fact that they are distinctly nonhuman.
Apr 29 18:11:19 <Nemi> ".. lotta blondes."
Apr 29 18:12:15 <gumbal1> "Essentially, Buenos Noches have taken Toni to an appartment, to await a third party who will come pick them up. You are to go to their location and free Toni, hopefully without disturbing the other apartment residents, or getting yourselves killed."
Apr 29 18:12:28 <Defined> "Oh..well..I suppose I could..fly about?" She shrugs.
Apr 29 18:12:56 <Nemi> ".. A'ight, okay. I'll uh, that sounds like a good thing. Fireflies outreach thing, right? Show what good stuff we can do?"
Apr 29 18:13:21 <Nemi> Andrey peers at Annora and grins. "Hey, if ya can fly that might be real good actually! But uh- yah, don't know you two. I'm Andrey, hey."
Apr 29 18:13:43 <Defined> "Will I be able ot fly then?.." She nods "I'm Annora..and..ah..I don't really have a second name"
Apr 29 18:13:49 <Defined> Since that had come up recently
Apr 29 18:14:46 <EndPhone> "Jinx." She says without really showing any interest or courtesy
Apr 29 18:14:51 <gumbal1> "They will be in a second story apartment, so I do not much see the need for flying. As the anomalous has recently been made public, however, I do not much see a reason not to."
Apr 29 18:16:00 <Defined> Annora had honestly just wanted some excuse to get airborne
Apr 29 18:16:02 <Nemi> "Cool, okay. Let's uh, yah. How we getting there?"
Apr 29 18:16:20 <gumbal1> A few images of the apartment are shown. It appears to be two-bedroom, with a staircase leading up to it and a neighboring one.
Apr 29 18:16:25 <EndPhone> "Well, let's get this show on the road, then. Faster we leave, faster we can be back."
Apr 29 18:17:31 <Defined> "Is there a roof access?"
Apr 29 18:17:36 <Nemi> Andrey gives as reassuring a grin as he can to Annora and follows with a thumbs up. Jeez, that Jinx girl is pretty rude.
Apr 29 18:18:06 <gumbal1> "You will be teleported, as usual, inside the complex gates but far enough away so as not to arouse suspicion. One note, for some reason, Buenos Noches have not bothered to blockade the doors or windows."
Apr 29 18:18:32 <EndPhone> "Sounds like a stupid mistake on their part, then."
Apr 29 18:18:47 <Nemi> "That or uh.. Yah, okay. Ready whenever."
Apr 29 18:19:26 <Defined> "Okay..I suppose I'm good too"
Apr 29 18:20:20 <Nemi> Another reassuring look to Annora. Inasmuch as Andrey can do, anyway.
Apr 29 18:20:52 <EndPhone> "So, what do you two do?"
Apr 29 18:20:53 <gumbal1> Bolton nods, and Amelie enters the room from a different door. "Was there anything else you wished to ask?"
Apr 29 18:21:05 <Defined> "Um..I" She flicks her wings
Apr 29 18:22:54 <Nemi> "Control an' create metal, turn into metal, and I can do stuff with uh, sound." Andrey waves to himself. "Uh, I got nothin'. What do we do if things go bad?"
Apr 29 18:24:02 <EndPhone> "Bad luck. Stay away from these" Jinx throws some bad luck away from everyone
Apr 29 18:24:12 <gumbal1> "If you or Toni are at risk of dying, I suggest fleeing. If a third party interferes, focus on them before going back to the mission at hand. And good luck."
Apr 29 18:24:42 <Nemi> ".. oookay. Uh. Right. Thanks Doc B!"
Apr 29 18:24:56 <Defined> "Fleeing" She nods "Okay. I'm good at that at least"
Apr 29 18:29:16 <gumbal1> "Alright. Amelia will also be teleporting a few radios with you, so make su-" The group suddenly find themselves standing in a dreary, snowy apartment complex. Soon after, a small box appears along with them. Soon after that, a note appears on the box. 'APARTMENT 526'. From the looks of it, the group is facing…the 300s. Hrm.
Apr 29 18:30:56 <EndPhone> "Fuck!" Jinx hisses as she's teleported. "That was terrible warning… At least it didn't hurt."
Apr 29 18:31:38 <Nemi> Andrey is left a little dazed and a little uncomfortable, but.. hey, it's snowy. And this is.. Pretty gloomy. Reminds Andrey of home. He wobbles over to the box to open it, and hold the note up for Jinx and Annora!
Apr 29 18:31:45 <Nemi> ".. wasn't so bad."
Apr 29 18:32:45 <gumbal1> A bunch of earpieces sit in the bag, along with around $1200 in assorted bills and some odd, reddish-orange rock.
Apr 29 18:32:57 <Defined> Annora groaned "…Oh..That didn't feel right at all.." She clears her mind of all the wooziness "Okay..so..we need to go up.." She tries to focus "…Maybe I can try to go in from the outside?"
Apr 29 18:33:45 <Nemi> Does the rock have any metal feel to it? Andrey takes one of the earpieces and tucks it on, before offering the rest to the other two. ".. yah, uh, maybe, at least try and scout maybe?"
Apr 29 18:34:31 <gumbal1> Not any more than your typcial garden-variety playground rock, though they do feel warm, somewhat.
Apr 29 18:34:49 <Defined> "O..Okay…" Annora takes an earpiece, and head to a window facing the back, trying to open it up, to get outside.
Apr 29 18:35:16 <gumbal1> One thing they may note about the money: There's a lot of 1s and a few 100s, nothing else.
Apr 29 18:35:35 <Nemi> Andrey pokes the red rock, confused. Makes sense, some of the cash is for… what, spending if needed? And the hundreds for bulk?
Apr 29 18:36:24 <EndPhone> "So…" Jinx puts the earpiece in, and stuffs the hundreds into her pocket "I guess we're taking the stairs?"
Apr 29 18:37:50 <Nemi> ".. Yup." Andrey stows the note- 526, right- and the rest of the cash into a hoodie pocket. And the rock. "Let's go, yah?" Andrey starts on up the sturrs!
Apr 29 18:38:45 <Defined> Meanwhile, Annora would be heading up "Right..Try and tell me which window it'll be." She knows its two stories up at least. Notably, being all sneeeaky like.
Apr 29 18:39:04 <EndPhone> Jinx follows. Actually, she should double check how many bills she just took… Just up the stairs and all…
Apr 29 18:39:48 <Nemi> Andrey will look for the 26th room of this current floor to better guide Annora!
Apr 29 18:40:18 <gumbal1> (this is an outdoor complex. probs should have stated that)
Apr 29 18:42:16 <EndPhone> (Does that redact what Andrey did, or?)
Apr 29 18:42:37 <Nemi> Yeah, redact going up. Oops. Okay. Time to look around better and figure out some navigation things- like which building it is, even.
Apr 29 18:44:05 <Defined> Annora would then seek out one of those handy dandy Fire Evacuation maps. Always great for knowing your ways of getting out of a building, and should have everything labeled. Good thing she's able to read now.
Apr 29 18:44:57 * SolongStarbird is now known as SolongSODbird
Apr 29 18:45:36 <gumbal1> The apartments appear to be blocked by type, with each apartment part of the same building. All apartment buildings are two stories, and have the front door of each apartment facing another apartment front door. Windows out of each bedroom, with corner apartments having two windows per bedroom. Fire evac is basically 'get the fuck out through the front door'.
Apr 29 18:46:19 <Defined> What Annora was looking for was the location of Building 526 on the map.
Apr 29 18:46:28 <Nemi> Makes sense, then. Time to just locate the appropriate building..
Apr 29 18:46:58 <EndPhone> Jinx is just trying to find it the old-fashioned way, meanwhile
Apr 29 18:47:14 <gumbal1> The particular part of the 500s block they're looking for is facing the back of a complex, where, over the fence, is the backside of a row of what are probably stores. 526 is right across from 525, and from the look of the doors (and, more specifically, the paint on them), these things are rather old.
Apr 29 18:49:13 <Nemi> That makes sense, at least. Housing tends to be pretty old.. Andrey will start making his way on toward 526, peering around and trying to get a feel for whatever metal might be in the structures.
Apr 29 18:49:28 <Defined> "Right. Got the location. Round the back" Information relayed, she would head over there, circling right around, betting on them not expecting anyone to be coming in from the stores direction.
Apr 29 18:49:52 <Defined> She was, naturally, being sneaky and stuff
Apr 29 18:50:09 <EndPhone> Jinx just takes a brisk walk over
Apr 29 18:50:35 <Nemi> Andrey walks briskly through the snow and cold, humming. Hopefully this could be done neatly and without a mess.
Apr 29 18:51:19 <gumbal1> Much of the actual structuring is stone, though metal is present. In the back of the main room, might be a kitchen. Some scattered around the main room, possibly furniture. In the window frame. And…one big, humanoid piece of metal, sittng in the main room.
Apr 29 18:52:57 <Nemi> … Thaaaat's different. Andrey murmurs into his earpiece, "Feelin' uh.. Something big, metal, human-shaped in the living area."
Apr 29 18:53:12 * Karaoke (git.q.7.921|ekoaraK#git.q.7.921|ekoaraK) has joined #sunnybrook-fireflies
Apr 29 18:54:46 <Defined> "Oh..that's..a thing.." Annora would next be trying to approach the outside, and be looking now for a way in that wasn't being guarded over. Maybe a skylight of some sort? Lots of people forget to secure them…
Apr 29 18:56:14 <gumbal1> No skylights. but 526 is a corner apartment, and therefor the right bedroom had two windows, both with the blinds shut but otherwise apparantly unguarded.
Apr 29 18:56:35 <EndPhone> Jinx just stares, standing next to Audry. "Uh… I could probably use magic to open the lock? I think?"
Apr 29 18:56:45 <Nemi> Andrey heads up to the appropriate bulding and.. Has a breath. A glance to Jinx. ".. so uh, should we try and .. you know, approach all peaceful or .."
Apr 29 18:57:08 <Defined> Well then, Annora was all small and puny. Lets see if she can sneaky all inside the window, and make sure not to make any noise nudging the blinds aside.
Apr 29 18:57:53 <gumbal1> First, she'd have to open the window. Then she'd have to remove the blinds.
Apr 29 18:58:02 <gumbal1> *remove the screen
Apr 29 18:58:30 <EndPhone> "I'm not good at peace…"
Apr 29 18:58:36 <Defined> Well, she was..experieced at gaining entrance to places without priotr permission

Apr 29 18:59:30 <Nemi> Andrey quirks a lip at Jinx. Nothing to see here, just a huge blonde girl looking at an uncomfortably pale and grey-cast girl with hairspikes. ".. huh. Well. Let’s uh, wait for what birdie says, yah?"
Apr 29 19:00:20 <EndPhone> "I guess. I mean, I'm not saying I'd be terrible, but it's not what I was raised for."
Apr 29 19:01:05 <gumbal1> And…congratulations! You managed to open the window without making too much noise!
Apr 29 19:01:28 <Nemi> "Right. Well. I'm hopin' we can do this without people getting hurt or like. Attention. We're tryin' to prove anomalous people're good too, right?"
Apr 29 19:01:39 <Defined> Now, to get inside, caaaarefully setting the blinds aside to keep quietlike
Apr 29 19:02:45 <Nemi> Andrey starts up to 526's door. Corner apartment, right.. He doesn't knock, though, just loiters a little as if working up courage or similar.
Apr 29 19:03:03 <gumbal1> Carefully setting the blinds aside, you happen to spot something interesting. A rather large person, dressed in a blue jumpsuit, with a pale, delicate face almost like porc-…actually, that is porcelain. It's a mask, and you can tell because the flesh around it is green, for some reason.
Apr 29 19:03:20 <gumbal1> Still want to enter?
Apr 29 19:03:35 <EndPhone> "Well, I'm not much of one to convince people with words." Jinx hangs back a bit.
Apr 29 19:04:00 <Defined> Annora let out a bare whisper "One in the room. Going in" Not really, But Annora is going in. Just..quietly. Very, Very quietly

Apr 29 19:06:22 <Nemi> Pretty well, apparently.
Apr 29 19:06:40 <gumbal1> Simple. Detecting psychic presences. At least, that's one explanation for why the green person suddenly turns to face Annora.

Apr 29 19:08:27 <gumbal1> > Annora's turn
Apr 29 19:08:28 <Defined> Annora is going to nope out of there, back out the window.
Apr 29 19:08:45 <Nemi> Would Andrey hear any ruckus from inside? As it is, he's just waiting for word, or for something to go wrong.
Apr 29 19:09:15 <EndPhone> And Jinx is waiting with her, looking impatient
Apr 29 19:09:21 <gumbal1> Annora nopes the fuck out succesfully! Mostly because the green thing is now too focused on banging on the door.
Apr 29 19:09:37 <Defined> "I got detected, somehow.."
Apr 29 19:09:57 <Nemi> ".. oookay- gah!" Andrey steps back from the door, startled at the banging and general noise.
Apr 29 19:10:16 <Defined> "I'm out though..sorry.."
Apr 29 19:10:29 <gumbal1> And then, as stirring is heard from insi-

Apr 29 19:12:13 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1: 2:6-8+4
Apr 29 19:13:08 <gumbal1> All of you find yourself back where you were a few minutes ago, standing outside apartment 526. Annora, you're currently seeing double, oddly enough, of where you were a few moments ago and where you are now (-2 to perception and accuracy).
Apr 29 19:13:51 <gumbal1> All of you suddenly get a message on your phones. A group text, apparantly. <You have no idea what you're doing. Turn back now.>
Apr 29 19:14:42 <EndPhone> "The… What?" Jinx looks at the text. "At least things are getting interested. You two, come close for a sec?"
Apr 29 19:15:30 <Nemi> Andrey is deeply confused. Especially to be getting a text all of a sudden. ".. uh, yah, okay?" Andrey ducks in closer to Jinx- well, leans down, anyway- while staring at the phone he fished out from his top. What? There's nowhere else to stow it with the hoodie full up. < ??? who are you whats happening? >
Apr 29 19:15:43 <Defined> Annora shook her head, instinctivly focusing, trying to rid herself of this..whatever. [Nullification]
Apr 29 19:16:43 <gumbal1> With enough patience, you eventuall figure out how. <I am Lyanna Fitzroy, expediator and representative for Buenos Noches. Who are you?>
Apr 29 19:17:19 <Defined> Annora doesn't get a text, mostly because she doesn't own one…
Apr 29 19:17:25 <Defined> *A phone that is
Apr 29 19:17:58 <Nemi> < uh im andrey. student. > Andrey's skilled at texting despite having big fingers and thumbs.
Apr 29 19:18:03 <EndPhone> Jinx puts her hands close together, and a swirling real Orb forms. Suddenly, it explodes, teal hitting all of them. No marks or force, but they all /should feel faster (roll pending; witchcraft - speed up)
Apr 29 19:18:15 <EndPhone> 4d3-8+2
Apr 29 19:18:15 <Mjeowlnir> EndPhone: 2:8-8+2
Apr 29 19:18:27 <Nemi> Pity Andrey can't use his actually considerable personal charm over a text. Probably.
Apr 29 19:18:52 <EndPhone> (+1 to their next initiative rolls in the next 10 minutes)
Apr 29 19:19:11 <gumbal1> <Listen, Andrey: If you were the one who tried to break into our apartment, I seriously advise you against it. You have no idea what you're trying to do.>
Apr 29 19:20:13 <Nemi> < ya thats true. i didnt try breaking in btw. :| >
Apr 29 19:20:56 <EndPhone> "So… Now what?"
Apr 29 19:21:58 <gumbal1> Suddenly, with a blink, the three are back in their original positions, phones untexted, ubuffed. That changes soon, at least for Andrey. <Ah. Apologies. If you do find the person responsible, advise them against it.>
Apr 29 19:22:57 <Nemi> < perkele! what is going on?? >
Apr 29 19:23:51 <gumbal1> <Have you played Undertale, per chance? Let's just say one of us has quite the determination.>
Apr 29 19:24:33 <gumbal1> <Which would be useful if, say, phone conversations got into the wrong hand. But that's just theoretical.>
Apr 29 19:24:35 <Nemi> <palyed it?? i did covers of all the tracks on my youtube channel. so youre like.. restarting from earlier saves? this is so weird>
Apr 29 19:25:22 <EndPhone> Jinx reads he conversation, kinda confused. "I wanna say something, but I'm not sure if he'd hear it or something…"
Apr 29 19:25:30 <gumbal1> <Indeed.> The blinds for the left bedrrom windo briefly open, and a bearded man looks out, before closing the blinds.
Apr 29 19:25:51 <Nemi> ".. I could uh, text what you're askin' them if you want?" A look to Jinx. Would Andrey have noticed the beardyman?
Apr 29 19:25:57 <Defined> 4d3+4
Apr 29 19:25:57 <Mjeowlnir> Defined: 15:11+4
Apr 29 19:26:08 <Defined> (7)
Apr 29 19:27:12 <gumbal1> While everything definetly went back, Annora suddenly gets this weird gut instinct (+3 on reaction rolls).
Apr 29 19:27:31 <gumbal1> Probably. Window's right near the door.
Apr 29 19:28:04 <EndPhone> Jinx facepalms.
Apr 29 19:28:21 <Defined> Right then. Annora is going to try and get back in. This time through a different window. Since the last one hadn't worked out so well…
Apr 29 19:28:21 <Nemi> Then beardyman'd spy the tall blonde and friends huddled around one phone, Andrey at least looking deeply confused. <seriously though like what are you talking about not knowing what were doing b/c that is pretty obvious i think>
Apr 29 19:28:38 <Defined> "..Something weird is going on…"
Apr 29 19:29:04 <gumbal1> <What you're doing? So you admit to trying to break in?>
Apr 29 19:30:01 <Nemi> <what? no? im just wondering what the hell you meant b/c i definitely dont> There might be a stray umlaut or two. Finnish phone. ".. yah, basically, Lyanna or whatever can uh, reset things to an earlier point in time. I dunno why we remember everything though."
Apr 29 19:31:29 <gumbal1> <Someone tried to break in through the bedroom window. It appears they either do not have a phone or wish not to make contact. I am asking you not to let them break in. Insisting, even.>
Apr 29 19:31:32 <EndPhone> "Probably because we're magic and shit. Not sure what to do about it, though." Jinx takes out her own phone to write a quick note.
Apr 29 19:33:02 <Nemi> < ok.. um. > Andrey looks around, then .. Slowly starts toward 526 again. ".. I think we try to talk this time. Maybe?" < can we talk? my thumbs are big and clumsy and im still trying to figure out whats going on >
Apr 29 19:33:06 <gumbal1> <Also. Interesting setup you folks got.> Annora, the only windows left are the other bedroom window and the window the bearded man looked through. <I'm guessing you're cosplayers at best and anomalies at worst. Care to confirm either?>
Apr 29 19:33:53 <Defined> Annora, considering matters would see if there's a backdoor. She doesn't like the bedroom windows much.
Apr 29 19:34:39 <EndPhone> Jinx elbows Andrey, trying and failing to not be obvious that she's showing what's on her phone. <If I can get close, I can disable this guy's time thing>
Apr 29 19:34:45 <gumbal1> No backdoor, unfortunately. <Come in. Alone. These days it's hard to trust anyone, anomalous or not.>
Apr 29 19:36:30 <Defined> Well, for now, Annora would perch on the roof, waiting for a good point to make the next move, Patience is key, and one hopes that someone else has a plan for now.
Apr 29 19:36:45 <Nemi> Andrey .. Nods to Jinx. ".. uh, she's sayin' to go in alone. Uh. I'll try that, okay? You guys watch my back, try the uh.. Whatever you can do?"
Apr 29 19:37:07 <Nemi> Andrey quickly thumbs the screen. <ok. ill knock in a sec.> And up the stairs Andrey goes, to indeed approach the door.
Apr 29 19:37:28 <EndPhone> Jinx deletes it once Andrey reads. Can't be too careful. "I guess"
Apr 29 19:39:48 <gumbal1> It takes a while for the door to open. When it does, it's answered by someone resembling Lyanna, dressed more for attending a pop punk concert than a hostage situation. Sitting on a sofa chair behind her, vacantly staring ahead, is Mitsuru, shards of glass literring the end table next to her. The smell of weed permeates the apartment. "Andrey, I'm presuming?" Her voice is somewhat deep and masculine.
Apr 29 19:39:55 <gumbal1> *next to them
Apr 29 19:40:54 <Nemi> ".. Yah, that's me." Andrey blinks at Lyanna, and stands slightly on tiptoe to peer at Mitsuru. To contrast, Andrey's voice is (much to his frustration) pretty high and musical, made more curious with the Lahti accent.
Apr 29 19:41:06 <EndPhone> Can Jinx see her?
Apr 29 19:42:00 <Defined> Annora was listening into the conversation, picking through the conversation, muttering quietly into the earpiece "Where's the girl we're after?"
Apr 29 19:42:33 <EndPhone> (her being Lyanna)
Apr 29 19:43:02 <gumbal1> Jinx can see Lyanna, but not Mitsuru from their current angle. "Sorry for the mess, come in. Care for a…" Lyanna smiles. "Right. Well, if you do happen to find a joint, it's not mine and this isn't my apartment." Wink.
Apr 29 19:45:07 <EndPhone> Jinx tries to casually get to an angle where she wouldn't be seen, but could still see Lyanna. Then, she'd try to cast Magical Disruption on that time thing (if she's the wrong person, choose which power randomly)
Apr 29 19:45:18 <Nemi> Andrey smirks and steps in. "Course not. Definitely not yours, just coincidence, yah. Wouldn't mind, honest. Haven't smoked in two months and I'm itchy on it."
Apr 29 19:45:29 <gumbal1> > Roll, Jinx
Apr 29 19:45:47 <EndPhone> 4d3-8+4 (also, she pulsing notice until she tried using it, baring some detection method)
Apr 29 19:45:47 <Mjeowlnir> EndPhone, (also, she pulsing notice until she tried using it, baring some detection method): 5:9-8+4
Apr 29 19:46:33 <EndPhone> (presumably wouldn't notice*)
Apr 29 19:48:04 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+5 Andrey might notice a certain oddity in the living room. Sitting on the stool is a robot with a pink and white color scheme, with a figure similar to Lyanna, right down to some superficial hair-like cloth.
Apr 29 19:48:04 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, Andrey might notice a certain oddity in the living room. Sitting on the stool is a robot with a pink and white color scheme, with a figure similar to Lyanna, right down to some superficial hair-like cloth.: 5:8-8+5
Apr 29 19:48:47 <Nemi> ".. woah, cool robot!"
Apr 29 19:50:42 <gumbal1> It briefly fidgits, then turns to look at Andrey. "Like her? Made her myself. Name's Bass Down Low, after the Cateracts song. Don't ask" BDL waves, as Mitsuru suddenly turns to face Andrey, pulling a cigarette carton out of her pocket.
Apr 29 19:50:50 <gumbal1> *their
Apr 29 19:52:25 <Defined> Annora continued to listen, she had considered sneaking in again, but she didn't want to spoil their plans.
Apr 29 19:52:53 <Nemi> ".. yah, I like her a lot."Andrey stands like a lemon unless offered a seat. "How'd ya manage the joints? I can't make a humanoid 'bot at all, can't get the joint assembly to be stable and let it keep balance.. Like the name, too." Andrey waves back to BDL. These people seem.. Alright?
Apr 29 19:52:55 <gumbal1> > Perception, Andrey and Jinx
Apr 29 19:53:08 <Nemi> 4d3-8+6

Apr 29 19:53:15 <Mjeowlnir> EndPhone: -2:5-8+1
Apr 29 19:54:52 <gumbal1> Lyanna offers a seat on the sofa to Andrey, and he notices that her left fist seems to be clenched around something. Jinx, unfortunately, gets some snow in her eyes. "Trade secret, sorry. I use the design for a friend's car wash machines."
Apr 29 19:56:36 <Nemi> "What, seriously?" Andrey plops down. Is the thing Lyanna's got metallic? ".. that's kind of sweet, honestly. So uh, yah, I'm Andrey, hey."
Apr 29 19:57:12 <gumbal1> Mitsuru, meanwhile, pulls a blunt out of their carton and reaches for something in their other pocket. "Mitsuru. Lyanna, would you invite Andrey's friends in. They must be so cold."
Apr 29 19:57:19 <EndPhone> "Hey, Ann, got a plan?" Jinxs asks over the headset.
Apr 29 19:57:34 <gumbal1> Mitsuru's voice is a feminine, tired low.
Apr 29 19:57:50 <gumbal1> "Right, right. Andrey, you want to go fetch your pals?"
Apr 29 19:58:02 <Defined> "Um..We need to find Toni before we do anything.."
Apr 29 19:58:17 <Defined> Annora put that back to Jinx
Apr 29 19:58:17 <EndPhone> "Alright…"
Apr 29 19:59:48 <Nemi> "Uh, yah, sure." Andrey swivels to door, and.. "Hey, uhh, go get Annora, could ya? Thanks!" And then settling again. "Nice meetin' ya."
Apr 29 20:00:07 * SolongSODbird is now known as SolongStarbird
Apr 29 20:00:57 <EndPhone> "You heard, let's go in." Jinx walks in. "Uh, hi."
Apr 29 20:01:52 <Defined> "Um..I'd prefer to stay outside, if its all the same. Claustraphobic"
Apr 29 20:02:12 <gumbal1> Mitsuru pulls out a small glass ball and a lighter, setting the ball on the table and user her lighter to light up the joint. "It is good to meet you, too, Andrey."
Apr 29 20:02:35 <gumbal1> *their lighter
Apr 29 20:04:22 <Nemi> Andrey slouches in the seat in a decidedly ungirlish fashion and quirks a lip.
Apr 29 20:06:40 <gumbal1> Lyanna looks to Jinx. "Hello." And with that, Mitsuru takes a puff and proceeds to offer it to Andrey. "I take it this is Annora?"
Apr 29 20:07:33 <Nemi> Andrey takes the blunt and shall take a hit! "Uh, yah, bird-girl's Annora." He offers it to the next person in line, probably Lyanna.
Apr 29 20:08:04 <EndPhone> "Uh, no, I'm Jinx… she says she's claustrophobic… Not sure what it means"
Apr 29 20:08:40 <Defined> Annora is still outside, being paranoid. She can't see anything side, just hear stuff through the microphones on the earpieces.
Apr 29 20:08:48 <Nemi> "Scared of.. Somethings. Close place I think."
Apr 29 20:08:57 <gumbal1> Lyanna:"I didn't think the hair was that…oh. Well then. Tell here there's plenty of space inside." Lyanna passes the joint on to Jinx, not actually taking a hit herself. "So, what did you want?"
Apr 29 20:09:54 <Nemi> "Well.. It's uh, about Toni, basically."
Apr 29 20:10:00 <EndPhone> Jinx doesn't take the joint, holding up her hand to decline.
Apr 29 20:11:05 <gumbal1> Passed over to Mitsuru, then. M:"I have no idea what you're talking about. And please, I insist."
Apr 29 20:11:54 <gumbal1> "…Mitsuru, how do you like your coffee." "I like my sugar with coffee and cream."
Apr 29 20:12:03 <gumbal1> >Perception, Andrey and Jinx

Apr 29 20:13:23 <EndPhone> 4d4-8+1
Apr 29 20:13:23 <Mjeowlnir> EndPhone: 1:8-8+1
Apr 29 20:14:54 <gumbal1> Andrey, Lyanna almost seems to nod at Mitsuru's response. Jinx, nothing much is happening here, honestly. No real sense of danger.
Apr 29 20:16:47 <gumbal1> "Right. I'll note that when I make a batch."
Apr 29 20:16:55 <Defined> "They are using codewords" Annora has the 'benefit' of only being able to focus on the words "On your guard"
Apr 29 20:19:08 <Nemi> Andrey figured as much. He shrugs and sits back a bit. ".. so, uh, yah. That's basically it." Beardyman's in one of the bedrooms, right. No sign of Toni.. Probably? Robot'd be the fourth of their group, right? So that's .. Everyone but Toni accounted for.
Apr 29 20:20:38 <EndPhone> Jinx just kinda holds her hands at the ready, trying not to look impatient or something.
Apr 29 20:20:49 <gumbal1> Lyanna gets up to go to the kitchen, and Misturu passes the joint back to Andrey. "Seriously. I do want to meet this Annora, if only because her name strikes me as odd. Could you call her here?"
Apr 29 20:21:58 <Defined> Annora didn't answer. She didn't want to reveal she could hear the conversation.
Apr 29 20:22:24 <Nemi> ".. man she's got no phone and I don't think I got anything to call her otherwise. I'unno, man. Sorry."
Apr 29 20:22:53 <EndPhone> "I'm not sure how she'd feel anyways…"
Apr 29 20:23:06 <gumbal1> "Oh?" Misturu leans forward, putting a hand to her mouth…
Apr 29 20:23:46 <gumbal1> *their
Apr 29 20:24:14 <gumbal1> …before bringing said hand down crashing onto the table, onto the small glass ball from earlier. "Then why did you ask Jinx to call them?"
Apr 29 20:24:39 <Nemi> "I meant usin' her voice! Jeez, calm down!"
Apr 29 20:25:02 <gumbal1> "Then she is nearby. Fetch her."
Apr 29 20:25:03 <Nemi> "I am not good at this English thing! I thought call was same as shoutin' out!"
Apr 29 20:25:11 <EndPhone> "Uh, because I was outside, and looking at her? Didn't you hear her call back?"
Apr 29 20:25:52 <Nemi> "Why? Now you're actin' weird and- serious," Andrey mutters something in Finnish. ".. don't know what this even is and wha's /happening/ or.." More muttered Finnish.
Apr 29 20:27:19 <gumbal1> "I'm sorry, I get worked up after my first few hits. Now, if you could kindly bring her over, we have some questions we'd like to ask." One of the bedroom doors open, and something with a porcelain mask and green skin peeks through.
Apr 29 20:27:20 <Defined> Annora would, meanwhile, see if there are any birds around. She had a plan.
Apr 29 20:27:45 <gumbal1> There's a few birds. Crows, mostly. An owl in the snow, eating a rat.
Apr 29 20:28:06 <Nemi> Andrey peers up at the green person, curiously. ".. uuuh, okay.. Jinx, you think you can find her?"
Apr 29 20:28:37 <Defined> Crows. Assholes.She's not even going to try talking to them. She motions over to the owl, asking if he'd terribly mind doing her a favour and flying down around the building.
Apr 29 20:29:03 <EndPhone> "Fiiiine." Jinx sighs out, and goes to leave the room.
Apr 29 20:29:11 <gumbal1> Lyanna, meanwhile, makes coffee, seemingly unfased by the shit going on around her, even whistling a bit. Andrey notes that her hand is still clenched around something. The owl, meanwhile, notices, bringing the rat over.
Apr 29 20:29:42 <Defined> "Okay, if there's an owl around, just..pretend its me" To the owl "Could you pass that rat over to the lady coming outside? She's rather peckish"
Apr 29 20:30:32 <EndPhone> Jinx walks away, so that they wouldn't be able to see her from that room.
Apr 29 20:30:39 <gumbal1> Owl nods, and goes over to harass Jinx with a freshly disemboweled rat. For the greater good, of course.
Apr 29 20:30:54 <Nemi> Green person. Green person.. Maybe that's actually their fourth? Or maybe that's Toni? Andrey looks at the green person, trying to get their measure, before his gaze follows after Lyanna.
Apr 29 20:31:07 <Defined> Okay, now to see if Jinx can take the cue…
Apr 29 20:31:42 <EndPhone> Jinx notices the owl, and avoids the rat. "The fuck? was that you?"
Apr 29 20:31:47 <gumbal1> "Though I suppose I could start by asking if Andrey and Jinx are really your names. Particularly because Jinx here looks like she came straight out of a live adaptation of Teen Titans."
Apr 29 20:32:15 <gumbal1> "…what the hell are you doing with that owl?"
Apr 29 20:32:17 <Defined> "Hey. You've said I'm a bird-girl. You never said I was human"
Apr 29 20:32:31 <Nemi> ".. yah, she really does.. And uh, yah? Is somethin' weird about my name?" Andrey looks briefly miffed.
Apr 29 20:33:13 <EndPhone> Jinx isn't too thick, so she sees about getting the owl to follow her back in.
Apr 29 20:34:49 <gumbal1> "Somewhat. I have a thing where I dislike psuedonyms. Really dislike. Makes Sullen unhappy as well." Mitsuru gestures to the green thing in the doorway. "And I don't want to make Sullen unhappy."
Apr 29 20:35:34 <gumbal1> Lyanna turns back to eye the owl. "…the fuck you bring that in for?"
Apr 29 20:36:09 <Nemi> ".. serious, man, name is actually Andrey." Sullen. Okay.. So there's /five/ of them. And Andrey has no clue how to approach this.
Apr 29 20:36:45 <gumbal1> "Then you're a bigger idiot than I took you for. Tell me, how do you know about someone named Toni?"
Apr 29 20:38:10 <Defined> "Hey. Look. Annora just came inside.."
Apr 29 20:38:23 <Nemi> Andrey goes blank. ".. yah, am pretty dumb. Bad at language and at doin' anything right really." He pauses. ".. cuz, well.." A look over at Lyanna and the owl.
Apr 29 20:38:49 <gumbal1> The owl hoots a few times.
Apr 29 20:39:36 <EndPhone> "This owl /is/ Annora."
Apr 29 20:39:44 <Nemi> ".. hey, birdgirl?"
Apr 29 20:41:00 <gumbal1> "…Jesus Christ." Mitsuru giggles, then suddenly takes a look at her hand. "Ergh, this stings. Lye, think you could fetch a bandaid?"
Apr 29 20:41:43 <Nemi> ".. wait, shit, you actually smashed that thing- holy shit you actually smashed that thing."
Apr 29 20:42:49 <EndPhone> \Fuck, is that another code?Apr 29 20:42:59 <gumbal1> "Right." Mitsuru takes another glass ball out of their pack and proceeds to smash that as well.
Apr 29 20:43:14 <Nemi> ".. how many of those do you have?"
Apr 29 20:43:28 <Nemi> Andrey flinches at the shattering glass.
Apr 29 20:43:31 <Defined> "Right then" Owls had amazing hearing. Hopefully amazing enough to pick up from the nearby earpiece "Owlfriend. Tell me. How many people do you hear?" She knew of seven. Herself, her two comrades, Beardy dude, porcelin face, Misturru and Lyana. SHe wanted to know the Owl's responce.
Apr 29 20:43:44 <Defined> (The earpiece on Jinx's shoulder)
Apr 29 20:43:58 <gumbal1> "Irrelevant." Mitsuru briefly glances towards the unopened door. "So. None of you are leaving if I don't want you to leave."
Apr 29 20:44:29 <Nemi> ".. uh.. Ooookay?" Andrey is now staring, still confused and now a little agitated, maybe scared.
Apr 29 20:44:36 <gumbal1> Owl reports back. Two more, one in the living room and one in the left bedroom, from the sounds of squirming, at least.
Apr 29 20:45:10 <EndPhone> "Well, That's a casual way to announce we're hostages."
Apr 29 20:46:49 <Defined> "Right then. My thanks. Now then.." Annora would be making her way to the left bedroom window "Okay. Jinx. Can you lock down the person with the face of porcelain. Also, Owlfriend reports one extra person in the living room, and struggles from the left bedroom" Annora..it was odd. Now that she was 'on task', there was a strange calm over her, like her mind
Apr 29 20:46:50 <Defined> was totally focused. She..tried not to consider the implications.
Apr 29 20:47:10 <gumbal1> "Just try to leave. You won't get far. And I don't want to have to involve Bryce or Sullen, so please don't make me." Another puff of the joint. "First question: are you two some strange Dr. Doolittle cop couple?"
Apr 29 20:47:39 <gumbal1> *Bradley
Apr 29 20:48:01 <EndPhone> "Uh… What? Who?"
Apr 29 20:48:21 <Nemi> ".. What? Who's Doctor Doolittle?"
Apr 29 20:48:26 <EndPhone> Jinx didn't see a lot of childhood movies
Apr 29 20:48:29 <Defined> "Just..distract them, with distractions" Thiefy stuff on the window?
Apr 29 20:49:19 <gumbal1> "Did I stutter? I asked if you two were some kind of lesbian animal-communicating duo of cops." Sideglance to Lyanna. "Lye, why are the anomalous duos always lesbian? That's been bothering me for a while now."
Apr 29 20:49:29 <gumbal1> > Roll, Annora
Apr 29 20:49:44 <Defined> 4d3-8+6
Apr 29 20:49:44 <Mjeowlnir> Defined: 7:9-8+6
Apr 29 20:49:57 <gumbal1> The window opens without a hitch!
Apr 29 20:50:24 <EndPhone> "I'm not a lesbian. Why does everyone think that? And do I /look/ like a cop? I look more like a petty criminal."
Apr 29 20:50:29 <Defined> Right then. Caaarefully, Annora was going to peak through the blinds. Hopefully there was a hostage, and the struggles wasn't something hinky.
Apr 29 20:51:02 <Nemi> ".. what? No, dude, I'm not a lesbian, I'd have to be a-" Andrey stops, purses lips. What a distraction. ".. no. I'm like, barely sixteen."
Apr 29 20:51:38 <gumbal1> "No clue. I read some stat about anomalies and LGBT+ shit, from a paper I don't trust." "Right, then."
Apr 29 20:51:54 <gumbal1> "The less you look like a cop, the better."
Apr 29 20:51:58 <Defined> "Owlpoop" She commented. Though..that's not for the two humans on the 'team'
Apr 29 20:52:30 <gumbal1> Annora, the room is dark, but you can see Toni tied up, mouth taped shut on the floor, the bearded man from earlier pacing the room. Yep, that's definetly Bradley.
Apr 29 20:52:52 <Nemi> ".. yah like all the anomalous kids I know are uh, what'sit, all lesbians or bi or trans or whatever, feels like. And like all girls too."
Apr 29 20:53:08 <EndPhone> "What, we're all gay? that's fucking stupid…"
Apr 29 20:53:09 <Defined> If Bradley were to leave, would Annora be able to get Toni out the window?
Apr 29 20:53:52 <gumbal1> Theoretically, yes.
Apr 29 20:53:53 <Defined> "Okay. Toni is in sight. One person in my way"
Apr 29 20:54:10 <Defined> "I need to get this..Bradly guy out of the way"
Apr 29 20:54:54 <gumbal1> "…I can't argue with that stat, actually. Like, Bradley's definetly hiding something, at least. Anyways," Another puff of the joint. "If you aren't cops, what are you?"
Apr 29 20:55:52 <EndPhone> "Uh, teens? What kind of police hire teens to work the field?"
Apr 29 20:57:21 <Nemi> ".. honestly? I'm a student. Was looking for Toni cuz she kinda .. didn't show up on the bus she was supposed to and well.. trail led here. I guess I didn't really know what I'd do if I found her or even get here so uh.. I'm kinda lost."
Apr 29 20:58:06 <gumbal1> "I'm nineteen. Age doesn't matter when you have powers." With that, Lyanna, seemingly done with the coffee, brings one over to Mitsuru and gives two black for the others. "I'll bring your sugar and creme, because you're not getting up from those spots.
Apr 29 20:58:39 <EndPhone> "And if we try?"
Apr 29 20:58:55 <gumbal1> "Great, great." Mitsuru rolls her eyes, turning to Lyanna. "Who do you think fucked that up for us?"
Apr 29 20:59:02 <Defined> "Could you do me a favour owlfriend, and poop on one those rather unpleasent types?. Then I suggest you leave. I will do my best to repay you somehow"
Apr 29 20:59:19 <gumbal1> "You're gonna make Sullen mad."
Apr 29 20:59:49 <Nemi> ".. thanks." Andrey takes the coffee in hand and stares at it. ".. sorry. .. fuck, I'm just an idiot, aren't I? I just wanted to find her and go home and.."
Apr 29 21:00:43 <gumbal1> Owl suddenly flys over to Mitsuru and begins hacking into their coffee, which Mitsuru quickly pulls away. "I hate birds. Bradley!" "What!" "Permission to kill this owl!" "What owl!" "This owl that keeps bothering us!" "What fucking owl!" "This owl the two captives let in!"
Apr 29 21:01:09 <Nemi> "What? Sorry! I didn't-"
Apr 29 21:01:16 <gumbal1> Bradley's voice is deep and commanding, with a slight touch of little Italy.
Apr 29 21:01:41 <EndPhone> "damn it Annora! Not helping!"
Apr 29 21:01:46 <Defined> Annora was poised now. If Bradly left even for a moment, she would be at Toni's side. She might only have less than a minute. She had to make it count.
Apr 29 21:02:17 <gumbal1> Bradley suddenly leaves the room, making sure to close the door behind him, to stare at the owl in question. "…the fuck let this little shit in? You know my policy with pets."
Apr 29 21:02:50 <EndPhone> "She's not just a pet."
Apr 29 21:03:00 <Nemi> Andrey flinches and does his best to shrink into the couch. This is not a very successful venture.
Apr 29 21:03:14 <Defined> Annora was in "Owlfriend! Flee for your life!" Beside Toni, untying her "Get ready to run. This is a rescue" She spoke quietly to the no doubt scared girl "We're going out the window"
Apr 29 21:03:53 <gumbal1> Toni nods. Owl tries fleeing and "Oh no you fucking don't!"
Apr 29 21:03:59 <gumbal1> >roll for owl, Annora
Apr 29 21:04:59 <Defined> ‘calc 3d4-8 +Whatever else
Apr 29 21:05:26 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+6 The owl is fast.
Apr 29 21:05:26 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, The owl is fast.: 6:8-8+6
Apr 29 21:05:54 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+9 But, arm suddenly morphing into a flaming green tentacle, Bradley is faster.
Apr 29 21:05:54 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, But, arm suddenly morphing into a flaming green tentacle, Bradley is faster.: 10:9-8+9
Apr 29 21:05:55 <Defined> Annora would grab Toni once she’s free, tugging her to the window "I've got Toni. Everyone scatter"
Apr 29 21:06:43 <gumbal1> The owl dies, and Mitsuru smashes another glass ball in celebration. "Yes! Death saved over." Meanwhile, Toni runs out of the window, trying not to make too much sound.
Apr 29 21:06:58 <Nemi> "Saved over?"
Apr 29 21:07:21 <Nemi> Oh. Now Andrey gets it. It's Mitsuru with the savestates. That must be the glass ball thing.
Apr 29 21:07:23 <EndPhone> "That time thing?" Jinx looks over to Andrey, looking for a signal
Apr 29 21:07:34 <Defined> Annora feels that pang of loss..but..she has to finish the mission. "Toni is out"
Apr 29 21:07:55 <gumbal1> "What do you think I was doing with the glass balls, getting my anger out?" Mitsuru suddenly looks to Lyanna. "Hey, Lye, could I, er, talk with you after this?"
Apr 29 21:08:00 <Nemi> Andrey just looks about as confused, hurt and lost as a sixteen-year-old with issues could expect to be. This isn't like the other mission. It's not /fun/.
Apr 29 21:08:44 <EndPhone> Jinx waits for Andrey to look back.
Apr 29 21:09:27 <gumbal1> Bradley nods, and heads back for the room. "Right. Sorry, business is business, and I can't have some lit-" Mitsuru is interrupted by the sound of Bradley screaming. Loudly.

Apr 29 21:10:40 <gumbal1> "Miyamoto! Reload, now!"
Apr 29 21:10:48 <Nemi> Andrey blinks, looks at Jinx, and then- recoils at the scream, spilling coffee all over himself and making a "GAH!" of surprise, nearly falling out of his seat.
Apr 29 21:11:23 * Cezar is now known as Reynard
Apr 29 21:11:39 <EndPhone> Jinx takes that scream as a cue, and reaches for one of those save bottles. Or the whole bag. If she had them, she was in control, right? (what roll, reflexes?)
Apr 29 21:11:48 <gumbal1> Miyamoto reloads, and suddenly everyone is back to where they were when the last glass ball was smashed, dead owl on the floor. Everyone except Toni, who is still running far away. Bradley immediatly heads for the room, only to scream again.
Apr 29 21:12:51 <EndPhone> Jinx tries again, She just had to smash one, right? Or, all of them? Could she smash them all at once?
Apr 29 21:13:03 <Defined> Well, if Toni is far away, Annora can just flat out flysprint to get out of dodge
Apr 29 21:13:08 <gumbal1> The balls are in Mitsuru's jacket.

Apr 29 21:14:38 <Defined> Meanwhile. Annora would be attempting to radio in the base. Surely they have something to get people out. Right?
Apr 29 21:15:07 <Nemi> Andrey's not spilled his coffee now, though he does remain generally dazed and confused.

Apr 29 21:20:05 <gumbal1> You actually manage to reach where Toni was, but you're still a bit away from Toni.
Apr 29 21:20:13 <gumbal1> > Jinx
Apr 29 21:22:09 <EndPhone> Jinx acts quick. Mitsuru had the save balls in his jacket, right? Just a quick move to smash one or more would… probably save. At least take away that advantage (what roll? Fighting?)

Apr 29 21:24:43 <gumbal1> "Agh!" Mitsuru stumbles back, having just had a bunch of broken glass pressed into her side. Gotta suck.
Apr 29 21:24:47 <gumbal1> > Andrey
Apr 29 21:28:40 * Defined is now known as Def|ZZ
Apr 29 21:29:22 <Nemi> "Oh shit- oh fuck-" There's tentacles and punching and screaming and time's resetting and Andrey's already stressing the fuck out for messing up a lot so he just drops his coffee and brings his arms over his head because, unlike Madeline Maddox or Anthiel, Andrey really is effectively an ordinary teenager who's freaking the fuck out.
Apr 29 21:29:55 <gumbal1> >I'm taking that as a defense boost.
Apr 29 21:30:03 <gumbal1> > BDL
Apr 29 21:30:23 <gumbal1> Bass Down Low's been quiet for all this, merely looking between Andrey and Jinx, and…
Apr 29 21:31:19 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+6 (BRAWN) Goes to uppercut Jinx.
Apr 29 21:31:19 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, (BRAWN) Goes to uppercut Jinx.: 7:9-8+6

Apr 29 21:32:51 <Mjeowlnir> EndPhone, Jinx uses her trusty back-bend to dodge, and then tries to recover quick: 7:8-8+7
Apr 29 21:33:25 <gumbal1> And BDL merely clips Jinx's ear, instead of her whole face.
Apr 29 21:33:29 <gumbal1> > Mitsuru
Apr 29 21:33:45 <gumbal1> Meanwhile, Mitsuru, still reeling from the blow, stumbles over to the kitchen and looks for a first aid kit. (PROCESS OF HEALING)
Apr 29 21:33:59 <gumbal1> > Sullen
Apr 29 21:34:39 <gumbal1> Sullen is not happy, and both Andrey and Jinx can feel it in the air.
Apr 29 21:35:05 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+7 (SPP) Jinx especially, as Sullen attempts to unleash a mental barrage on her.
Apr 29 21:35:06 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, (SPP) Jinx especially, as Sullen attempts to unleash a mental barrage on her.: 8:9-8+7

Apr 29 21:38:31 <gumbal1> Jesus fucking christ. Lyanna sighs, pulling a concealed firearm out of her, directing BDL to examine Andrey, turns off safety…

Apr 29 21:40:18 <gumbal1> Andrey turns to metal in time. Doesn't change the denting.
Apr 29 21:40:32 <gumbal1> > -3 hp
Apr 29 21:40:39 <gumbal1> > Bradley
Apr 29 21:40:55 <Nemi> That was actually just regular defense! That'd be a +1 if it was Iron Maiden use.
Apr 29 21:41:13 <gumbal1> Oh, well. Enjoy your new bulletholes.
Apr 29 21:41:34 <gumbal1> > Bradley
Apr 29 21:42:05 <gumbal1> Bradley's mad, but he's not that mad that he can't think straight. So he doesn't know what kind of pwers these things have…
Apr 29 21:42:07 <Nemi> Andrey lets out a soft gasp of surprise and falls off the couch, clutching at a bleeding gunshot wound, his face screwing up as he tries not to cry in fear and pain.
Apr 29 21:43:05 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+9 (DARK SECRETS) Better inject Jinx with some energy (via abdoment tentacle stab) to get her powers to go haywire.

Apr 29 21:52:32 <gumbal1> >Andrey
Apr 29 21:53:47 <Nemi> Andrey's just been /shot/. That /hurts/. And- well. As the waves of pain hit, Andrey.. Nobody ever said that boys don't cry. Most don't cry with enough sonic force to tear open a building. That's exactly the kind of sonic wave coming from the wailing kid on the floor toward Mitsuru, Lyanna and Bradley right now.

Apr 29 21:55:42 <gumbal1> All three are taken aback by the shriek. Mitsuru most of all, suddenly slipping over and hitting their head on the counter and oh. That's a lot of blood.
Apr 29 21:56:29 <gumbal1> > Sullen
Apr 29 21:56:51 <gumbal1> Sullen's had enough of this fucking girl. Right, time to try that again, because Sullen knows that last one hurt.

Apr 29 21:59:31 <gumbal1> > LYANNA
Apr 29 21:59:57 <gumbal1> Lyanna was about to attack upon being screamed at, but suddenly stops as she spots Mitsuru and just…stares.

Apr 29 22:02:31 <gumbal1> Andrey get's the shit slapped out of him. Last he checked the Deadsac, one shit is worth 3 hp.
Apr 29 22:02:40 <gumbal1> > Andrey
Apr 29 22:04:34 <Nemi> Andrey's whimpering, hurting, and generally having a bad time. So Andrey does the most logical thing and tries to flee- Going into liquid metal and merging into the disabled BDL's chassis.
Apr 29 22:04:46 <Nemi> 4d3-8+7 Iron Maiden?

Apr 29 22:11:30 <gumbal1> > Sullen
Apr 29 22:11:41 <gumbal1> One thing Sullen hates about metal is how hard it is to break.
Apr 29 22:13:20 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+9 (STRENGTH+CRASHING WAVES, BURSTING SEAMS) So it has to summon some extra strength to dent this one, fist crashing into BDAndrey so hard it practically bursts.

Apr 29 22:14:22 <Nemi> Not very.
Apr 29 22:15:00 <gumbal1> You feel like, if you had to quantify it, you're basically at 44% conciousness by this point. (1 damage)
Apr 29 22:15:05 <gumbal1> > Bradley
Apr 29 22:15:52 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+9 (DS) A tentacle shoots over to Andrey in kind. "Why won't you fucking stay down?!"
Apr 29 22:15:53 <Mjeowlnir> gumbal1, (DS) A tentacle shoots over to Andrey in kind. "Why won't you fucking stay down?!": 9:8-8+9

Apr 29 22:16:37 <gumbal1> Yeah, he's a basically been beaten two thirds to some kind of death by this point.
Apr 29 22:16:46 <gumbal1> >YOU THOUGHT IT WAS ANDREY, BUT IT WAS ME, LYANNA
Apr 29 22:17:37 <gumbal1> Andrey suddenly gets a very powerful urge to walk over to the sink, stick his left hand in, and turn that shit on.
Apr 29 22:17:49 <gumbal1> > Willpower, last chance to break
Apr 29 22:18:27 <Nemi> 4d3-8+3 Everything is terrible.

Apr 29 22:21:31 <gumbal1> Eh, a few bits scrape off, but Andrey doesn't feel it.
Apr 29 22:22:08 <gumbal1> > Sullen
Apr 29 22:23:18 <gumbal1> Sullen's hoping, however, that a swift kick to Andrey's bad does hurt.
Apr 29 22:23:26 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+5 (BRAWN)

Apr 29 22:24:25 <gumbal1> Andrey doesn't feel that either. Must be numb by now.
Apr 29 22:24:34 <gumbal1> > LYANNA
Apr 29 22:25:28 <gumbal1> Lyanna's taking this time to rush to Mitsuru, hoping for any sign that they're still with her. Her movements are filled with trembles, by now.
Apr 29 22:25:56 <gumbal1> > Bradley
Apr 29 22:26:04 <Nemi> If only robots could cry. Because Andrey's trying really really hard.
Apr 29 22:26:42 <gumbal1> 4d3-8+9 (DS) "Die! Die! Why won't you die!" Another tentacle strike, this time trying to smash BDAndrey's head into BDAndrey's neck.

Apr 29 22:27:18 <gumbal1> …which lands the tentacle into sink disposal, forcing Andrey out as Bradley screams.
Apr 29 22:27:21 <gumbal1> > Andrey
Apr 29 22:28:49 <Nemi> "Gah!" Andrey ducks under the rapidly-mulched tentacle. Lyanna's busy, Sullen's useless, Mitsuru- oh, God, did he actually kill her? Bradley's getting mangled and- Jinx's on the floor. BDAndrey sprints to grab Jinx and throw her over a shoulder and run out the door, bringign up a tangled wall of steel from the walls to block the exit behind him. Time to go. Tiiime to go.
Apr 29 22:29:12 <gumbal1> > COMBAT ENDED
Apr 29 22:29:15 * Lena is now known as Hope
Apr 29 22:30:28 <gumbal1> Outside it's still snowing, lightly. Toni and Annora appear to have gotten away. Seems like BDL wasn't exactly made for snow traversal, but Andrey manages well enough.
Apr 29 22:31:01 <Nemi> Andrey, at this point.. Doesn't exactly have an earpiece. Jinx does, though- an awkward bit of mechanical fidgeting to get her in position before Andrey whispers into the earpiece, ".. extraction now please."
Apr 29 22:31:28 <gumbal1> «Will do. Any difficulties?»
Apr 29 22:32:34 <Nemi> <.. I'm a robot and Mitsuru might be dead and .. it went really badly I'm sorry I'm sorry I just- I uh, I wanna go home now. >
Apr 29 22:33:01 <gumbal1> <Is Toni okay?>
Apr 29 22:33:40 <Nemi> <.. yes, Annora got her out. >
Apr 29 22:33:53 <gumbal1> <We'll be there in a bit.>
Apr 29 22:34:44 <Nemi> <.. okay.> Andrey continues trudging on with the unconscious Jinx over a metal shoulder, hoping she'll be okay. This went horribly. At least everything doesn't hurt anymore.
Apr 29 22:35:50 <gumbal1> That's true, at least for everyone except Bradley. Sullen feels no pain, Lyanna wasn't harmed, Mitsuru is dead and therefore can't feel pain…things worked out for the good.
