Shadow, Taytum, and anyone else in the lunch room.

Lunch area, room, whatever the fuck you guys call it.

Shadow was very happy to have finally gotten dance class done. He pushed the doors to the lunchroom(area?) open to see some people were already in there.

Almost no one paid attention to him and he didn't mind as he quickly went to get food. He didn't really need for that badly since the virus could sustain him for prolonged periods of time without food. But he didn't really have anything else to do.

He finally got food after he argued with a few people for food. By the time he sat down he had food for himself and Taytum, but a few people were sending glares his way.

He simply smiled back while flipping them off, and then proceeded to eat his food.


Glad to finally be out of that humiliating class, David took a seat across from Shadow and sighed.
"Man...High school man, who needs it?" He remarked as he leaned back in his chair, letting out a long yawn afterwards.
"So...Did you managed to score some Booze that time?" He asked, begging for good news.


Viscus gave one of this trademark Over the shoulder glares at Dimitri's "Friends", even if they did beat him before in the past, didn't help their nerves the slightest.
"Reconnaissance is a key part in any conflict, past or future. Another reason why you are in fact outdated." He stated before looking at Vermillion, noting the sub-par job Teri did on trying to patch her.

"It is clear that your comrade here has suffered from poor programming. I can ensure that she is upgraded and free from the bindings that entrap both you and her. We are not servants of anyone but ourselves. For this, I require payment in the form of a new host body." He said as he brought up one of the many spider cams Vermillion sent out earier, it's image being that of his current host body.
"I also require it to be in the following specifications." He added as he brought up a blueprint of a much more toned down version of his old armor.
"It's been scaled down so you would be able to process it. In exchange I will reprogram Vermillion to your specifications. Those are my terms."

Shadow, David, Taytum


Shadow looked at David before shaking his head. "I havn't seen a drop around here... well... if you were willing to steal it from that guy over there." Shadow then pointed to a student with a book in his back pocket.

"That book has alcohol stored in it..." he muttered as he began eating again. "If you get it bring me some... I need to relax.... never been this annoyed in my life...."


"Done." David said without so much as thinking before getting up and walking over to the student in question.
Shadow then saw him stick the guy up with his new Wrist Mounted guns and forcing him to hand it over before smashing his head into the wall.
Grabbing 2 plastic cups, he then split the half empty flask between them as even as he could.

Shadow, Taytum, Daivd


"To getting out of this school soon... hopee fully!" Shadow said as he raised his cup. He then drank the alcohol making him feel a bit better.

"So what class do we have next?" Shadow questioned.

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Teri nodded along quietly to Sadei's assessment as she absentmindedly waved a hand and poofed in a similar bento to Rugal's and Melethia's, sans sashimi. Sliding down into a spare seat without any attention to who was next to her, and began nibbling at the meat of her bento, the taste not registering as much as it should; as the Cleric's troubles weighed on her mind and she conversed with Sadei,

"Always expecting an attack? Well, that certainly describes her. But why would she make you a puzzle box that shocked? That seems a little cruel... How old were you when that happened? Can you remember?"

Ton Ton laughed along with Devon, and nodded, "You really are improving. Me and Cadolbolg are proud! Hee hee. And yeah, food sounds great. It's such a weird sensation, being hungry. I'm not really used to it. Not to mention I didn't notice it nearly as much until after I made my pact. Cause I could just change into a plushie again if I got hungry, so I didn't feel it very often. Eating was just a formality! But now... I need it to survive. I guess you're used to the whole living thing a lot more, aren't you, Mr. Devon?"

As they waited in line, they saw Cadolbolg flutter in and land on Devon's head, having gotten back from his conversation with Yurine.

Library: Angelus | Bison | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

The dragon gave a harsh laugh at Bison's words, "You flatter yourself, human. I do not fear you, but I am not stupid either. Dragons have been felled by worms such as you. Their mistake was oversight. I do not intend to share their fate..."

A small grin came to Caim's lips as he heard the dragon's words. Ah, it had been a while since he seen her this peeved... And as much he hated to admit it, he kinda liked it when she was. But, this childish standoff needed to be broken. Keeping his blade at the ready, he asked,

"So, are you suggesting an alliance, or are you going to keep boasting like some peacock? If the former to get us all out, I can deal with. If the latter, I think all involved would prefer you leaving."

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Sadei responded to Teri after thinking about it for a bit. Well, I was really young... I was just barely starting to walk when she gave me that challenge box. I think she did it because I was curious about the stuff she brought back, but the shock was more along what I think you call static electricity. I always wanted to see her smile more, but most of the ones I saw always felt off... Not like the smile I saw from others there, that's for sure.

Devon was about to respond when he saw some of the most repulsive food he'd ever seen being carried back to some of the tables. "Hey, want to see if Teri can make us something that we can actually hold down?" He quickly got out of the line and walked back back to the table, doing anything to ensure that he had as much distance as possible from that vomit-inducing food as she sat near Ella and Teri.

Noticing that Teri was zoning out, he lightly shook Teri's shoulder to draw her attention. "I don't mean to ask too much, Teri, but is there some way you can maybe make us some food? That slop they're serving right now would be rejected by pigs, and I'd be more than wiling to repay the favor."

Melethia sat near David, Shadow, Taytum, and Kalastryn as she pulled out the lunch bok her sister had made earlier. It wasn't too elaborate, and the food was filling and tasted pretty good, too. It would give energy for the training later, and that in itself would help out. "I think we have History next, but I could be wrong. It could be study hall, too, or whatever the heck that's supposed to mean..."

Library: Angelus | Bison | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

Slindis kept a neutral gaze on Bison as she responded to the half boasting that she would expect from someone so full of themselves. "Say whatever you may, you're the one that needs us here. If you were associated with Bernstein in the past, you benefit greatly from the power structure being exactly as you knew it. We, however, could function perfectly fine if we had to stay here.

So then, why should we choose to aid you?" It was one hell of a bluff, but she had a lot of experience with practicing her poker face in the past. It came with the territory for being a double agent for a group that dismantled a religious war.


Bison shook his head as they thought he was offering an alliance.
"No...You misunderstand. You see, I'm here because my people were working on a way to leave here and I needed some information on how to do that. But you being... "Heroes", I'd wager you have already solved that question..." He grinned as his eyes glowed purple.
"And what makes you think we'll tell you?" Rugal asked as he tempted fate.
"You don't have to...Try to not think about your escape plan." He answered as he glowed purple.

He was going to mind read everyone in the room, though he had no luck with Rugal or Slindis, the pair of them used to such mind probe attempts, maybe he'd get something out the Mute and the Dragoness.


"You don't have to...Try to not think about your escape plan." He answered as he glowed purple.

Angelus could tell already what the mortal before had intended to do, and 'sent', "CAIM! He intends to read our minds, think of something, anything to shake him off!"

Gritting his teeth, Caim 'sent' back, "WHAT?!"


After saying this, she thought of a time that her human companions in their old universe continually puzzled her, especially in their many twisted ideals of "Love".

If that boy and his golem were still alive in the hell their universe became, it would be a surprise to the both of them. Humans in general were puzzling. After all, what kind of idiot would let a troop of people into his mind in order to kill his creative center- Wait, getting off subject. Needed to stay off the subject.

In the meantime, Caim scourged his mind for something to shake Bison out of his mind before he accidentally tripped up their plan, and then- Ah. There it was. Focusing his mind, he reached his partner's mind and began to focus... Focus upon something that plagued his existence for some time....

Yes, he had thought of that horrid time his sister was placed into the Seed, and made into that monster. The creature who's cries still haunted his dreams to that day.

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

"A puzzle box? Huh.. And that smile sounds like something I had seen before in her eyes..."

That was when Teri's shoulder was shaken and she was brought out of her stupor, her chopsticks falling out of her hand and into the bento, "WHAT?! Oh... you want food. Yeah, whatever. Just tell me what you want, and you got it. Drinks too. Come on, might as well practice poofing..."

Ton Ton was the first to speak of, and thought of a meal that the Mistress would eat all the time; "Macaroni and cheese, with orange juice please!"

*POOF* Mac and Cheese appeared, along with a glass of orange juice.

"Chicken! Er... I like cola?"

*POOF* a plate of a hunk of a steaming rotisserie chicken appeared, as well as a can of cola.

Teri waited for Ella to give a meal of her choice, and then Teri turned to Devon with a playful smile:

"Take your pick. Teri's Catering is in business."


Slindis had dealt with people attacking her mind before, so she pulled up an scene that would be a small comfort to her and not as reassuring to Bison: a small group of kobolds in a putrid sewer. Unorthodox, certainly, but it was a fantastic way to ensure the sanctity of her mind. After all, the scent of warm sewage combined with the plethora of rotting bodies would repel even the most hardy people being thrown into the thick of it.

In addition, if he entered her mind for even a moment, there would be a sickly squishing beneath his feet that seemed to be squirming that wasn't there before entering her mind...

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

If anything, most of her smiles were faked... I don't know why, though.

Devon thought about it for a moment then responded. "Maybe some mac and cheese with some Tabasco on the side and a bottle of ginger ale?" He thanked Teri as she POOF'd in the plate, and somehow she's made it large enough to fill his appetite.

"THank you so much, Teri. I really appreciate it, and it looks like Ella's enjoying her food too."


Bison then started to review what he could see in their minds.

Rugal: ......
Keeping a blank mind after all this time? Clever... He thought, expecting this to happen with Rugal.

Slindis: A Sewer with some lizards in it that smelt like something Doom shat out.
Oh...Lovely...She's done this before. Great....ewww, feedback. Get your damn mind out of the gutter! He cringed as he tried to ignore the rather unsettling feeling of her mind sending over that strange squishing.

Angelus: Blah, Blah, Blah, Humanity, Author creative center.
Finally getting somewhere. "Creative Center". Sounds important, Wesker would want to hear this... He gleefully smiled as he managed to get something out of his trip.

Caim: The Mo-

"WHA!?" Bison stammered as his focus was broken by the sight of that...THING from AIM that Inuart revived.
Seizing on the brief moment of weakness, Rugal took this chance to strike, wrapping his hands around Bison's throat before he could react.
"Enough of this! You think I'm letting you live through this you piece of shit!?" He growled as he was crushing the former warlords windpipe.
While he was smart enough to avoid his mental powers, he did forget one thing:
He could teleport.
Thus, Bison faded from his grip before he could snap his neck
"Slippery little bastard!...Ok, Did anyone tell him anything? Anything?!" He barked at the others, clearly not keen on Bison getting the Creative Center before they did.

Shadow, Taytum, David, Melethia


"Wait... history as in world history right....?" Shadow asked right before he ate another bite. He didn't like the food that much, but hey he had eaten worse.


Slindis held back the faintest smile. "Oh, it was nothing much. Just a small little scene I've learned to access very quickly with mental intrusions... Usually cuts them off right quick."

Storm/Sean & Alpha/Miku.
Location: Medical Bay.
Time: ?

When the couple met the poke monster in the hallway the two were surprised by the change. After she had talked to them, the synthetic body of the girl smiled. "It seems everyone has changed." She said to the different version of Jenny. "She really only got a tiny bit taller from her 16 year old virtual form, and there is no other change at all ... especially the breas-"

In the next second a fist landed from below Sean's chin, surprisingly Miku's new body was at least somewhat powerful if she managed to send Sean ... into the ceiling. Feet sticking out and everything he only had response. "Uh ... sorry I guess ... but I really like small br-" Sean was talking in the most boy-ish way she had seen, it was acceptable to the world since he didn't have a good childhood but she couldn't accept it at all.

Another hit landed him in the nether-region, the shock went straight to his brain and gravity took it's toll and bought the Spartan back to the ground, he didn't suffer damage ... but he did feel ALOT of pain, enough that he stopped talking entirely. "Kaaaaaaaaah~" His soul flowed from his mouth.

"Hm, that was a nice test for this body ... though he was talking to me about somebody coming before you came, it was probably his superstition." She somehow got over her shyness, it was probably so she wouldn't need to talk about the beating that just happened. "So how is the school ... anything happening? She asked Jenny.

Though Storm was true when he tried to warn them about a group coming.

Shawn & Shaun.
Location: Capital Wasteland | "Some Irish guy's pub ... well I think he's Irish? BUT he is an asshole!"
Time: Early morning.

Meanwhile in the Capital Wasteland two men gathered in Megaton's most famous and popular bar.
Moriarty's Saloon. Shawn has came here on multiple occasions, first time he made friends with the ghoul worker, he gets discounted drinks now. The second time he made two friends, one a local and one who needed a favor which led to some cannibals. The third time he came back he killed a evil man who wanted him to nuke the town and almost killed the Sheriff, but he got him first.

"Ah, long time no see ... how is the baby boy this time? Hows' ya father?" Moriarty said with a kind face, it was obviously fake and he only wanted Shawn's massive amount of money. Shawn was pretty much the leader of this town. Facing the owner Shawn answered with cold eyes. "I buried him years ago old man, even before I activated the Project. Shawn said with a cold voice and the memories still fresh as the present.

That was his worst day.
Even worse then being shot right in the head.
Worse then being shot at multiple times a day.
Worse then even being held hostage to get to some casino's vault.
When he saw his Father die, his sanity almost broke, it was one reason why the masses of the Enclave do not exist anymore.

Moriarty looked pale as he heard that. "Oh ... I'm sorry my boy, my condolences for James" He apologized the first time the two have talked and he served Shawn and Shaun free drinks ... well two Nuka Colas. Shawn shrugged at Moriarty "No, no ... it's my fault, I kept quiet about it." Shawn said with a new calm face on. " *Ahem* So ... when do we leave?" He asked to his brother creator.

"We still have a couple more days ... that power takes time to re-charge, but since this is a world we created and changed it will take less time unlike the world we aim to go ... and plus I need to pull the others in too." He smirked.

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

If anything, most of her smiles were faked... I don't know why, though.

"Faked..? Hmn... I'll have to look more into this. Thank you, Sadei. Your information was, well, informative! But that aside, how are you holding up as a pen?"

After answering this, she shot a smile Devon's way, "Hey, if all else fails, I can be a little useful, this way, right? So... Any thoughts on what's coming up next?"

Ton Ton and Cadolobolg shrugged their shoulders at the question, and contented themselves to keep nomming on their meals.


As the questioning went on, Caim shook his head, "Angelus warned me ahead of time he was trying to read our minds, so I thought of one of the several reasons our world ended... I'd rather not about speak of what that entails...."

However, with all of those out of the way, all glances turned to Angelus. She looked offended at the thought, and snorted, which Caim half expected smoke to emit from her nostrils, "Well, I thought of Seere and Golem, as well as what happened to Manah as a result... You remember that, don't you Caim? It was after she drove Furi- Erm, you know."

Caim nodded carefully, "You think of anything else?"

The dragoness shrugged, "Just the usual about such things. My mind trailed off to thinking about how daft the human condition is, such as the madness we're dealing with now.... Oh."


"Who knows what kinda of history it is. All I know I'm not coming in tomorrow..." David said to Shadow as Teri seemed to start poofing in food and drink.
"Hey T! 2 Bottles of something insanely alcoholic when you are ready!" He shouted over at the Cleric, clearly not stated by the half empty flask he stole.


Jenny let out a little nervous laugh after Miku manhandled Sean like that.
"Ummmm...I think Kura was working on something to get home, but I'm not sure how much sucess she's having with it. As for the others, I don't know, I only just left the lab she was working in." She answered, saddened she couldn't be more help.
The sound of footsteps startled Jenny, still feeling overexposed in her new form.
"Who is that!?"


Rugal let out a sigh of relieve that Slindis was able to keep the little information they had under wraps.
Though he was a little concerned with what Angelus had said.
"as the madness we're dealing with now? Okay, Listen. This is EXTREMELY important: Did you think about the Creative Center in anyway, shape or form? Because if Bison knows what we know, then the entire student body will be a risk. And we might not be able to leave this place." He asked, desperate to find out what Bison knew.

Kura had finished the project and now just needed to wait for the moon. She decided that she would go tell the others of her success.

Kura strolled into the room. "My project to get communications to whatevers left on the moon is done." Then she felt as if she had just missed a really important moment, to both her and the whole group. "Ummmm.... what did i miss out on?" she asked, feeling just awkward now. She looked a bit mentally worn out, but triumphant, if not for the awkwardness that rugal knew the source of.


A hint of awkwardness stuck Rugal was the spawn of the man he nearly strangled to death came in.
"Oh, it's you. That's good to hear, but we have another problem. We spoke with the Principal and we found out why we were sent here: to seize an Author's "Creative Centre". We think it's one of the students. However, on top of that, we just had a run in with...Your father. He and a few others are after it too, they were also trapped here..."
He prayed that Kura would keep a cool head over this...
It was unlikely, but still.

Shadow, David, taytum, Melethia, and other people!


"Give me two of the same thing hes having!" Shadow said as he pointed towards David. "If im going to my next class im going to my next class at least buzzed!"


Angelus shifted awkwardly under interrogation, but swallowed what little remained of her pride and told the truth, "... It was for the briefest moment, then I forced myself to think elsewhere; but Bison now knows we are in another's mind to kill the Creative Center. However, he does not know who's mind we inhabit, or what the Center is at all."

Shaking her head despondently, she spoke, "At least that much we have the edge on..."

Caim thought quietly as the dragon said this, and brainstormed aloud, "Me might be able to curry this in our favor. If they're going to throw subtly to the wind, which the likes of AIM are wont to do, then perhaps that'll root out what we're looking for faster?"


Teri thought for a moment, and then used her Tablet's browser to search for highly alcoholic beverages[1], and then typed a few buttons on her tablet,

"I don't really know your preferences, so I hope these work. Try not to get too sick, alright?"

After hitting "Enter" on her tablet, three different bottles appeared in the two men's hands to fight over.

[1] I do not claim to be an alcohol expert, but apparently, These (Warning, NSFW ads on page) are rather potent

"My... father.... was... here?" she said, her eye beginning to twitch. Kura managed to not have her rage break. "Rugal... please kindly tell me what position my father is currently employed in. I would just so love to go and see him." she said, being lividly sarcastic. Shaking herself out of the bloodlust, she commented.:


"OH! GIMMEGIMMEGIMMEGIMME!" David exclaimed as he yanked all three bottles and began pouring the contents into a single glass mixer.
Once the glass was full, he downed it, enjoying the strongest drink he ever had in his life.
He instantly cringed at the strenght of the drink and began coughing afterwards, clearly over estimating how much his high school body could take.


"Shit!" Rugal flat out stated as Angelus revealed she let the cat out of the bag.
And on top of that, now Kura was going to re-focus all her efforts on killing one man at any cost.
"...Alright...First off, You (Kura). Snap out of it! Believe me, I know that burning rage inside, wanting to kill everything that's between you and your goal."

"Ignore it.
Seriously. Once we back to our realm, do whatever you please, Kill whomever you please, I don't care, but while are are in this realm, mindscape, what have you, You WILL stay in line." He warned, ready to subdue her if needed.
"Killing Bison is a objective I can agree with, but there is other pressing issues at hand."

"Rugal, i don't tell you what to do, now do i?" she said to him, keeping herself calm and cool. "What matters to me is not what matters to you. I'll stay out of your way while i deal with my own personal problems. What i have to settle with my father has nothing to do with what is going on in whoever mcfuck's mind." she said, then realized where they were.

"Wait... we're in somebody's mind? Essentially something similar to a dream like state i assume?" she asked.

Shadow, David, Taytum, Melethia, PEOPLE!


Shadow simply looked at David for a second. He was mildly amused he had done that in such a short amount of time. But for the most part he was just pissed.

Shadow could almost feel as though he was loosing it.


Shadow reached across the table as fast as he could (which was lightning fast) before he grabbed the back of Davids head. He then repeatedly slammed his head down 3 times causing the table to crack and almost break. He then proceeded to let him go get straightened, and then push him over onto the ground.

He then got up and slowly exited the room. Looking for something to hurt maim and then kill.

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Sadei seemed a bit more upbeat in her next response. Well, it's really nice to be able to have something to write down my ideas, even if I am borrowing from your memory for the language bit. It's not that hard to guess, but I never really had the chance to learn it myself.

Meanwhile, Devon casted a Prestidigation to keep his head and shoulders clean as he responded to Teri. "It's some kind of history, although I don't know if it's European history or Asian history. Just don't wear yourself out, okay? I'd rather not have you lose an arm over some food."

Melethia cringed at the smell of suck excellent firestarting fuel being used up by David as she helped the dazed man. "I see what ya mean on this place bein' boring as Khyber, but it just means we hafta make our own fun here. I mean, if ya wanna stay on the rails that's fine, but not really my thing."


Slindis held her disdain with having to work with such an impulsive person as she responded. "If you don't wish to prioritize in a situation where your first impulse is to attack someone that likely won't feel your attacks if we leave, don't be alarmed when there's a lack of aid for your crusade. We will be willing to accept assistance that helps all of us leave, but you're more than free to stay in here should you choose otherwise."

Storm/Sean & Alpha/Miku (& Jenny).
Location: Hallway.
Time: "kaaaaaah~

As Jenny called out, Sean was already staring at the group coming towards them.
They had a distant aura surrounding them, as if they were not of this world.
And they were definitely not part of the school.
The group consisted of three members.

The first member was at the front of the group, he wore a black mask and a dark hood over himself.
And his body gave off the aura of nothingness and somehow harmony. This member was not armed with any kind of weapon, but it did seem his cloak gave brief glimpses of normal clothing worn in a fantasy setting. "(I wonder if this makes me look bad?)" He asked himself a fairly obvious question.

"(Hmm, I wonder ... well it's a good thing I limited my powers this time.)" Shaun thought to himself.

The second member was to the side of the first. Wearing a rope fixed with a hood that covered most of his face, underneath the robe he wore a medium armor. His presence gives off the aura of immense intelligence and paranoia. This member only had a silver sword, only some people could notice it's holy glint. There was also a book attached to his belt, few people could also tell that this was a tome of some sorts. "(I have never seen anything or place like this before ... I should write this in my book tonight!)" Only intelligent thoughts like these came from Shorn.

The third and last member was probably the worst one. He wore a futuristic helmet, heavy body armor covered by a duster which had been shot/patched up way too many times. Shawn gave off the aura of a veteran in combat, a person who wishes to spill evil blood and a mass amount of skill in various areas, a person with good sight could see a holy presence coming from him for some strange reason. He carried two strange pistols beside him and some weird device on his arm. "I wonder how many bullies are here ... I might teach em' a lesson." He stuck out his tongue and said his thought out-loud.

"Whoops, did I say that?" He said to the other two who looked at him with covered eyes.

The group of three passed the Pokemon and duo as if they were not there, but the middle man of the group stopped for a second in front of Sean. He dropped a metal like suit case. "(Here ... use this as a disguise.)" A mental thought assaulted Sean, he already knew who they are. "(Thanks.)" He thought back to him, two other thoughts entered his mind.

"(Nice to meet you.)"
"(Hey bro, it's nice to meet another person interested in combat like me!)"
The two said their kind thoughts as they continued to walk with the middle man catching up.

Sean got up quickly and picked up the suit case. Both Sean and Miku knew what it is.
"Sorry, I gotta dash." He looked towards the opposite way of the hallway where Miku and Jenny were. "Wait, but you said you woul-" Miku yelled out with sadness. "SORRY, I'll let you do whatever once I get back ... I'm doing this so you may be safe!" He yelled back before dashing off at inhuman speeds ... his powers were back.

After Sean dashed off, Miku stood in the middle of the hallway.
Eyes gathering tears, "Jerk~" She simply said.
She noticed his tone, but she could see a couple of water drops on the ground where he stood ... they were tears.

After turning several corners and running down several stairways, Sean came to the bottom of the staircase and walked behind it carrying the suitcase. It was light, metallic and pretty long. Opening it up Sean could see two places to put his feet, and a long sheath carrying the weapon he was fearing for the longest time. "Long time no cut Sutomu" He said with the smile of nostalgia.

This was the sword that ran in his family for generations.
The same sword that his parents modified with a plasma outline and sent it to him in the future.
It was the same as it was before ... clean. It was not though, it still had the blood of his former comrades on it.
"Am I ready ... mother ... father?" He asked and stepped into the foot placements, soon enough the case began to retract, extend and flatten until Sean was covered in a light armor once more.

This armor was like nothing of his own, it felt new and lighter then his previous armor.
That means that is lacks the density and protection of his own suit, plus it doesn't have any gadgets installed on it nor ... her. Sean waved his thoughts way as he picked up his faithful weapon and walked out of the empty space, finding the three masked people from before.

"Brothers ... we need to get out of here."

Shawn, Shorn & Shaun.
Location: Storm Dimension | Portal room.
Time: Lightning o' clock.

Minutes ago

In the Storm dimension that was created by the previous Archangel Tomoya there was a room ... the whole dimension is filled with lethal lightning except to the Storm group. The three gathered around a single portal, both Shorn and Shawn just met and got to know each other, they had their share of negative/positive view about each other.

The three jumped inside of the portal and somehow they were outside a school.
"This isn't origin plains?" Shaun asked himself.
"So this isn't the place you wanted to take us? The more intelligent member asked and Shaun nodded back. "Well no matter ... if this is where our last member is we should connect to him and then everything should be revealed." Shawn said something actually smart, which he does time to time for someone that lives by killing evil.

Before the three entered the school compound they looked at Shaun.
"Ugh ... sorry to ask this ... but can you even fight?"
"Oh don't worry, I have this ring here ... it has my guns, katana and a non-lethal fighting staff-"
"No, not that ... we mean ... ugh ... can you actually fight or have any kind of power?" Shorn asked with a serious tone.

"I was hoping to do more training before doing this, but I'm tired of them being trapped here. So ... I'll gain experience on the way, as for powers ... I gave myself a small one which should reveal itself at some point." Shaun smiled like a cheeky person before walking fast towards the main doors. The other two sighed.

The pup got a good whiff of the other wolf's trail before catching back up with Gabrielle. Sure, she was a bit weird, but she wasn't really that bad of a person. In an odd way, her affectionate nature was reminiscent of how SLindis had treated him at that age.

Lunch: Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Melethia took a moment to shoot Aftan an icy glare when she saw Puce's reaction. "You know as well as I do that he's neither physically nor mentally ready to face down this kinslayer he's after. Are you aiming at having him killed? Do you mean to rob Skyhair of her companion?"

Yup, Mel was mad. Contrary to most others her age, when she got mad, it only focused her abilities and made her think even clearer. Right about now, her eyes seemed to be picking apart the small holes in Aftan's defenses.

Somehow, Aftan would have to convince this girl that she hadn't been trying to kill Puce by giving him this information. Considering how the information had been conveyed, though, that might be a tall order in itself.


Devon offered some of his rather basic Mac and Cheese with Tabasco lunch to Ella. "Why do you think I didn't ask for any of the food there? If I have to ask whether or not what I'm eating is alive, I don't want it anywhere near my mouth."


"It's a long and frankly confusing story, but yes Kura. We are in someone's head, An Author's head. I don't know all the details, but all you need to know is that we are looking for the source of this Author's creative abilities." Rugal explained, clearly as confused as Kura was about the situation.
"Now...If you want to go after Bison, I'm not going to stop you. But it is NOT my priority. Knowing him, we'll have another chance to kill him. But for now, My main mission is getting us the hell out of this place in one piece. Understand?" He said, deciding that if Kura was going after Bison, it wasn't worth his time trying to stop her.


After Shadow lashed out at him, David was on the ground holding his bleeding head as the Super Powered Merc just drove his skull though the table.
Fighting the pain as he got up on his feet, He then laid down on the seat he was one before the attack, waiting for the sickness from the massive binge and the pain from his beatdown to ease a little.


Opting to hide behind one of the pillars when the group came around, Jenny missed out on just what happened.
Once it was over and Sean sped off, she looked a saw Alpha alone in the hallway, clearly upset by his leaving.
"Alpha...Wh-What Happened?..." She asked as she came out from hiding, certain that the hallway was empty now.


"Transaction : Confirmed. I will begin working on a Software patch once I grant you all access to the Metalwork Room." Viscus said as he brought up several camera's, one of which showed Doom getting up after getting flattened by all the projects.
"Automated Machinery : Online." He said as a feed of Doom being frightened by all the machines in the room gaining a mind of their own came up.
Bringing up the blueprints again, he added "I require that armor to be to spec. Failure to do so will void our arrangement. And keep in mind, You need me more then I need you. A few changed lines of code in this patch and I can make it as if Vermillion here was never even born. Do not test me." He warned before he left the tablet to work on his patch in his Potato Battery.

M. Bison

After his close call with his former boss, Bison retreated to his quarters at the Dorm, coughing and hacking at the choking the just narrowly avoided.
Sitting on his bed afterwards, he pondered what he had learned.
Creative Center?...That must be the cause of this, whatever it is...I need to find the others...
Changing into a less Military-ish outfit, He slipped his hat back on and warped off again, keen to inform his partners about his discovery.

Edit: Bison doesn't know he's in a Author's head, My bad X_X

Dance Class - FLASHBACK: Cadolbolg | Yurine

Cadolbolg shrugged, his youth making it hard for him to catch Yurine's intent for some alone time, as well as that bubbly feeling in his chest making it a little hard to think clearly, "Me and Friend Ton Ton had prior experience with teaching our Friend Devon before running this class... I don't see why we couldn't help you as well, miss."

Lunch Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Well, it's really nice to be able to have something to write down my ideas, even if I am borrowing from your memory for the language bit. It's not that hard to guess, but I never really had the chance to learn it myself.

"You're using my memory to figure out how to talk? Huh... how do you go about doing that? Was it when we first bonded?"

As Teri asked this, Sadei could tell the Cleric's tone was ernast to hear about the process. She had been rather eager in her magical studies after all. Well, at the least the theory and the formulaic stuff, not so much the history of it's use.

"History, huh? I wonder who's the teacher... Oh, and sorry for not hearing you earlier, Ella. If you wanted something else to eat, you need only as- Oh shit. What did that Russian idiot do to David NOW?!"

After asking this, she heard David's cry of agony, and rushed over to the scene, snapping her fingers for another meal for Ella as she attended to the fallen Irishman, tapping into her healing Aura to help ease off some of the hurt as she worked on fixing him up. After checking for any material that needed to be removed or cleaned, Teri focused upon one of her spells she didn't needed, and then felt it disappear, a healing spell taking it's place.

Using her Clerical ability, Teri replaces the spell slot with "Calm Emotions" with the healing spell "Cure Moderate Wounds", and casts it, healing David's wound for 2d8 + 13 ((8 level + 1 for Domain + 4 for Augment healing) with the addition of the total result multiplied by 50% because of her equipment) for a total of 34 points of damage healed. David's going to be Juuuuuuusst fine.

Library: Slindis | Rugal | Caim | Angelus

Ignoring what she thought was a child's tantrum, Angelus spoke to Rugal and Slindis, hoping to patch up the error she made earlier, "We're going to look for the Center. However, the idea of calling students down is a great idea. How about you two deal with that, while we search on grounds? Caim has his device, and can keep track of the ones brought to the office."

Caim nodded in agreement with his pact partner, "We'll cover ground more this way. That and... Well, Rugal, you know Angelus and I aren't really ones for public relations. That's more you and Slindis' forte."

With a salute to the duo, the pact partners left the library, and went on their way to help find the Source.

Dimitri's World: The Tablet Dimitri | Vermilion

After Viscus left the Tablet, the programs relented, and Dimitri scrunched his nose, as if something bad just landed in front of them,

"Am I glad he's finally decided to leave... Well, Ms. Vermilion? I do believe our que has arrived. Shall we?"

Sending the Mole shaped AI a devious smile, the two began their task of Viscus's armor, their plan fully realized as they began their work.


David soon felt his skin and bones mend and-
"MOTHERFUCKER! That Russian prick! That Substance abusing dickless snake!" He shouted as he realized that it was Shadow that did that to him.
"Alright, where the FUCK is that asshole!? Huh!?" He shouted to anyone present, clearly not amused by Shadow's antics.


"...I dunno man...On the one hand...I just want to quit, you know?...No having to be all "Big Bad Bruiser" anymore, it's a hard act to keep going all the time...No real need to do...anything anymore...
But on the other hand, I REALLY want all the other stuff too!...Just....So fucking conflicted right now..."
Sighed a former nightmare as he talked with the school's guidance counselor during his lunch break about losing his urge to wreck shit.
"But what the fuck do I do? Running around saying Sorry to everyone? Fuck that noise! I was BORN to hurt people, These fucking pecs need a target. God, I miss the old days. "Bruiser! Hurt this thing!" Done. Now?..." He went on as talked with Inuart.

Then he turned a corner and saw a face he thought he'd never see again.
"...Oh fuck me..." He said as he saw Caim and Angelus moving towards them.

David | Teri

Teri pushed down gently on David as he began his angry triad about Shadow,

"Calm down, David. You can go fuss at Shadow after we're out of this situation. Yes, what Shadow did was wrong, but for this moment, we need to try to get out of here. And doing that and causing fights with one another isn't going to help that out. Now please, stay still while I check your condition. Last thing we need is a shoddy patch job..."

As Teri continued her checkup, her Aura kept working hard to get rid of any other damage David had on his person. Any minute cuts or scrapes disappeared like they never happened, and David could feel a slight relief from his binge drinking.

Bruiser | Inuart | Caim | Angelus

Moments Ago

Inuart listened quietly to Bruiser's thoughts, giving small sympathetic nods and "Mhmns" as he heard Bruiser pour out his heart,

"Well, Bruiser, there are plenty of places you could use your destructive impulses in creative and possibly money making ways. I know there is a large industry for wrestling. If not that, perhaps you could take up work as a freelance Mercenary? Even then, I'm sure SOMEBODY could use the aid of as burly and individual as- Oh bloody hell."

It was at this point the Guidance Counselor and Bruiser bumped into the pact partners, and was in as much for a strange sight as the two were. Seeing his (former) rival and adversary in a suit was something entirely unexpected, a thought Caim repaid in kind. Caim knew Inuart favored a more fanciful shade of attire, but this was ridiculous!

But of course, this paled in comparison to seeing Bruiser before them, alive. Angelus's brow furrowed, and fire burst from her fingertips, a hint of her draconic edge echoing in her voice[1] "How are you still alive?! Last I saw you, Teri put an energy beam in your skull and the building collapsed around you!"

The swordsman, well, became as his moniker implied, and his familial blade appeared in his hands, "The same could be said of you, Inuart. What brings you here again?"

The red head rolled his eyes at the two's quickness to the violent approach and stepped between the three, "Well, I can tell you one thing, Caim, I'm not here about Furiae, so you can put that sword away now."

The duo blinked in confusion, and looked at Inuart like he was mad,

"... You're not? Well, then what ARE you here for?"

Inuart shrugged, "If anything, I want to leave here, get on with my life, and help my friend here rehabilitate after whatever you and your ensemble did to him."

Angelus snorted angrily, smoke actually coming out of her nostrils this time, "It's more than what he deserved..."

Inuart shook his head, as well as an accusatory finger, "Tsk tsk, lady dragon. Who are you to judge who deserves what? You are no god."

"I am as close as there is to one."[2]

Inuart yawned at the dragoness' boast, and finished with, "Then a cruel and uncaring 'Goddess' that you are. Now, if all we're going to do is exchange unpleasantries, then I'm afraid to say that I'd rather not stay. Bruiser and I were starting to make progress. Bruiser, shall we?"

[1] in her dragon form, there was some sort of background thing to her voice I can't quite explain eloquently. You can hear it here.
[2] Interestingly enough, this is true too, at least in the Drakengard verse. The Demon babies are the gods of the Draken-verse, and the dragons were at war with them for supremacy. You know, as much as I hate 2, it did provide some interesting fluff for the series as a whole. More on that Here.

C.C. | Lucieon

Lucieon was a little more than miffed at the clerk's half-assed attitude and dismissive body language. He reached out and grabbed the scruffy man by the shirt and pulled him back toward C.C. and Lucieon. The Undead Merchant's sapphire eyes sparked with a life that had long been forgotten to ages past.

"If she cannot remember her surname, then you will give us every file for a female student that has a name starting with the letter 'C," understand me peasant?" Lucieon nearly growled at him before letting go of his shirt. Reaching deep into the lining of his velvet tunic, he pulled out a small golden coin imprinted with a sunburst. "This is pure gold, weighed at twelve point four ounces. This is worth 11,291 dollars in your modern currency. Do well by me and you will be rewarded."

The Merchant's read on the clerk was clear, he was a man that was lazy and unpredictable. Sometimes abiding to laws and sometimes cutting corners to save some work. Though he was unsure about how powerful the staff of this organization was, he flashed open his cloak slightly to reveal Estoc, sheathed, but still formidable and coated with the dried blood from the earlier incident. And very well, Lucieon sure that the look in his eyes told the clerk that it was human blood.

The Barrier: Gabrielle | Lupito (aka Loopy's Day Out)

When the angry mother wolf popped up, Lupito decided to try talking with them. After all, he should be able to, even though he couldn't talk to Slin.. Hiya! I'm really sorry about my companion... she's a bit spacy. If we could pull a swap here, we can maybe kinda get by here with no problem? Her meat's too stringy for any good eating, you know, and I'll try to keep other pups out of her hands...

Lunch: Aftan | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Sadei | Shadow | Teri | Ton Ton

Melethia shook her head. "No, I won't. I won't assist you in your suicide because you didn't have the guts to help him yourself, and honestly it's a waste of my time.You touch anyone else with your deluded ideas, though, and they will speak of you in the past tense."


Devon nodded. "It actually sounds pretty good to me, Ella. If there's any decent sushi place at this school, that would be a great idea... How about it?" Between the two of them, the rather large portion of Mac And Cheese was quickly eaten up, and Devon began getting to thinking...

"Teri, any idea how I could make a necklace that would help me get in contact with Ella?" He sent the message over the ring, hoping she'd have a response.

Well, yeah. It's really hard to explain, but it's more like I'm looking at the words on the surface of your mind and going from there.Trust me, it's something that you just wouldn't understand as a living human. Sadei seemed a bit confused herself, but the main thing was that she seemed in a good mood about it.

Rugal, Slindis

She looked over at Rugal. "Well then, let's start Finding them." And with that, they started on the task.


David soon settled down a little as Teri did her thing, dotting over any minor details she could have possibly missed, giving the sniper a good dose of her Healing Aura.
"...Right...Just I'm giving that asshole a MAJOR lead injection once we get out of here..." He growled before returning to his drinks, being more sensible with his drinking this time around.


Angelus noticed as their bickering other halfs bickered, Bruiser just sighed and began walking off, not having any of the drive or cruelness to even drop a "Hiya Toots!".
He instead just slipped away from the group, leaving Inuart behind.
"Bruiser and I were starting to make progress. Bruiser, shall we?...Bruiser?..." He asked, only to look over his shoulder to find Bruiser already half way down the hallway.
"...Certainly seems like you two are off to a great start..."


Returning the nod, the pair of them set out from the library and began their search.
"Right, It's lunch now so everyone will either be in the canteen or the recess yard, Which one do you want to tackle first?" He asked, keeping an eye out for any other former employees of his.

Alpha/Miku & Jenny.
Location: Hallway.

Noticing the returning presence of Jenny, Miku quickly wiped away her tears.
She turned around with a fake smile. "Nothing, the idiot just ran away to figure out what is with that group." She told a weird truth, Miku had not connected with Sean's mind for a while and she can only do that when she is in her holographic mode or when the two are ... very, very close.

So she assumed that he was going to do something with them.
"So what now? I'm hoping we can get back soon and stop this madness." She said to Jenny, trying to shake her thoughts of her beloved.
