Slindis took in the information and nodded. "Well, we have to keep in mind that this school was made specifically to keep an eye on the students here. There would be many others that would want these kids. There's a lot more going on behind the scenes, but again I really don't feel too safe bringing it up due to some of those brought up."

Meanwhile for his part, Lupito was enjoying the playing around with Gabrielle while he lightheartedly nipped at her legs.

Mel called out to Puce and Aftan, a bit annoyed but clearly seeing an opening to slip away while the teacher dealt with the money. "Are the both of ya gonna keep arguin' for no reason or are ya just gonna kiss an' make up?" There was only so long that she could handle the spat before getting annoyed, after all.

------------------------------

He paid a little attention to the teacher but not all that much as he addressed Ella. "Yeah. It took a long time, but a large chunk of all that was just learning how to dance. I didn't want to bother you since you were still recovering from your problem, well, that and they were rather intense training sessions. I mean, you can join if you want, but there's a lot that you wouldn't expect from those lessons. I mean, you wouldn't believe some of the things... Well, I guess you'll be seeing them. If it gets too hard for you, just let me know. Or we could always head to that dance together tonight."

Devon then proceeded to give a rather gentlemanly kiss on Ella's hand as he continued, and she could see that even at this age that he was built in all the right places. Caim's training was not undone by something as minor as losing years off one's life. "Well, it was more of that I was just so clumsy, Ella. Even if I can talk it down, it doesn't mean that I shouldn't be able to defend myself. I just have the feeling that for everything I can talk down, there's seven other things I won't be able to. ANd what would happen if those people from the ceiling went to mess with you again?"

It was around that time that he paused for an unsettling amount of time and chuckled as he talked again. "Or we could be worrying about the Mother-in-law...That blue hair does not work with all of those rings." He was extremely hesitant to say more, but Ella knew exactly who he was talking about.

The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Rugal | Slindis | Teri | ???

It was around that time that Slindis took a good hard look at Lucifer, not being too trusting at the moment with all of the issues that had been brought up. "I believe we should be asking the questions here, Lucifer. Why are you here?"

Devon kept a firm hand on Ella's shoulder, and Ella could feel the fine mesh of Devon's chainmail shirt underneath his uniform as well. It wasn't too noisy, but It provided a good defense. Come to think of it, it hadn't been there before she left. How had he gotten it? For his part, Devon tried to conceal to Lucifer that he knew about who was currently in control down south.

Not that it worked, of course. I mean, no matter how well you can bluff, you won't beat the Prince of lies without a good deal of training.

"Well if I had to guess I would say becoming Patient Zero of a Rage virus outbreak had he bitten me," Matt said after examining the miniature zombie. "What I can say is that this is first time I've seen it. Maybe you can keep him as a pet," Matt said jokingly.

The Library: Gabrielle | Kurumu | Lupito | Maxim

Lupito was thoroughly enjoying this - sure, he would have to be cleaned off, but that didn't matter right now. And with that, he zipped between Gabrielle's legs, incredibly gleeful


Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Miku | Puce | Sadei | Sean | Ton Ton

Melethia chuckled. "Nah, I just think she's real mad at ya for lookin' so bad out there. I mean, when I get the chance, I could show ya some things with just about anythin' ya want to use. So, what do ay thing?" From how she'd taken on the zombies in the class like it was a flick of the wrist, she could probably show quite a few things to the Energy Conduit in CQC that would augment his current skills. In any case, it wouldbe a good idea to see how she fought.

------------------------------

Ella most certainly did know who Devon was referring to when he mentioned the blue hair and masses of gold rings. There could only be one person that fit that description to a T.

"She sure does know how to dress doesn't she? I mean I swear to the heavens that she only looks at the tackiest stuff in the world and asks herself how she can make it even more tacky before she puts it on." The Half Succubus Half Angel said with a laugh as she they finally entered the Headmaster's office.

"Oh holy crap. Daddy?"


The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Slindis shook her head as she addressed him. "We lost that information somewhere between the fifth and ninth plane shifts. Now this Agehea, she seems to be someone you know..."

Devon took a moment to think it out and addressed Lucifer. "Does she have ears here? I'm hesitant to talk too much when we have those kinds of people about."

Slindis scowled at Devon and addressed him through a whisper into the ring, covering her mouth with her other hand to conceal the words. She knew well enough when one had reason to be paranoid, and she felt she was on the right track. "Who is this she? The Demon in control tight now?"

"Yes." He took a cue from Slin's book in his return communication which would prevent lip reading and all but the best microphones to pick up a trace before he went back to Ella's side.

The Paladin knew there was a lot more from how the man knew, but she placed enough faith in him to trust that he would keep it silent.

Rugal

Rugal was confused to say the least about all this.
"Alright, so this entire School...Was a Mission that we set up to save Mark?....Okay then...What was the plan again?" He asked, figuring whatever plan they had made before they were sent here must have been half decent.

David

David merely sighed and leaned back on his seat.
*Shakes 8-Ball of Writers Block*
"Welp, guess this will be a uneventful class then..."

"I don't know why you're asking me that but sure, keep him. Just make sure to keep a close eye on it unless he escapes and starts a zombie apocalypse. Though don't ask me what they eat because as far as I remember they don't eat anything and starve to death," Matt said remembering the movies well.

"GAH SON OF A-!" Kala screamed for a moment as her ear felt like it was about to detach. The teacher's profane language wasn't easily tolerated. Still, she picked up a rag sprayed the whiteboard with Lysol, cleaned it of in a "circle," then as she turned around to face Consuela she had a look of pure malice in her face... and there was more than one way to get sent to detention. She shot a look to David, keeping the promise of telling him about the next outburst and detention attempt. With a quick motion she bit her finger and then poked Consuela with it rather forcefully. Normally, this would seem very little... but... she had just used her necrotic touch attack.

(necrotic touch more or less deals damage based on a random dice roll, which is based on your level. The damage type is negative energy... think of like an unholy blight or just pretty much the essence of death. As Kalastryn is level 9, she rolls 9d6, so the damage is equal to what they would roll on 9 combined 6 sided dice. She rolled a 24, so that means Consuela just took 24 damage from the very essence of death. That could be a little, it could be a lot, on average, it's about half of what she *could* have done.)

She held back a bit with it, not wanting to hurt her even though she was just called a bitch... still, for a woman of Consuela's stature, it wouldn't be the end of the world, but it would hurt... Not necessarily agonizing, but it's not even close to a light tickle either. "Next time, don't call me a bitch, or I won't hold back on zapping you!" She yelled to Consuela.

Then, seeing as how the other classmates didn't see much out of the "attack" and with people she knew knowing better than to assume it was just a light poke, she decided to send a message out over the rings. "I will concede that was probably a little extreme, for those that saw it, but I do feel an honest need to get into detention. I might be able to turn things up there, and, like before, it's not even close to life threatening. Still, that's what they get for manhandling me and referring to me with such profanity as well!" She said to the people in the class who had the rings/knew her, so they at least knew the Rhyme and Reason behind zapping a janitor with, again, the essence of death.

Outside: Gabrielle | Lupito

Lupito was panicking for the first few minutes of the ride before he finally calmed down. Well, that or he'd already made peace with the fact that he was probably going to die.


Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Miku | Puce | Sadei | Sean | Ton Ton

Melethia nodded. "Well, just tell me what ya want, and I can work somethin' out. It just takes some thinkin' outside the box, that's all."

As she let Puce and Kurumu muse over it, she went over to David. "So, are ya doin' okay?"


The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Slindis talked. "The biggest strength that this Mark has is those creative abilities. Shut them down, she loses her use for him."

David

David was just plain confused by whatever Kalastryn just did and why she was doing it.
"...Urgggg...Whatever..." He sent back, not really careing for what happened to her after that stunt with the Zombies.
It was then Melethia spoke to him.
"Okay? At this point, I wished I just died in that attack on Moscow rather than end up with all you crazy ass people..." He answered rather offensively before pulling out a pen and some paper to do another drawing with while he waited for this Janitor to do something.
"I mean, when I first met these people, this was NOT what I thought being with them would be like!!"

If he was a more savvy man, his mind would have switched gears already. But sadly, when it came to feelings of affection, he wass as tongue tied as any other gentlemen, and definitely not his smooth talking merchant self. At first he took C.C.'s comment very literally and was about to compliment her for looking so youthful well into her early second century. But he managed to catch himself before he actually said anything. The fact set in, his skin and hair weren't the result of some off-record humanity binge, he had actually reverted somewhat back to his old teenage body.

When C.C. grabbed his hand and pleaded him to be her date, the sudden influx of humanity combined with thoze eyes of liquid gold stunned him. For the briefest moment he saw someone else in C.C.'s place. With eyes the same shade of deep gold, whose hair was as red as embers and skin pale and smooth, like a childs. He saw someone whose name he couldn't remember. but she wore the same silks and colors as he did, and the insignia of Merizidan Trading was sewn plainly above her breast. She was a short thing, maybe about five feet tall, but she was warm and hot to the touch, almost like she was hiding a fire underneath that soft skin of hers. Her ears twitched as she stared at him, flashing a small white smile that gave away her distinctive canines.

Even while he was still thinking of this mystery person Lucieon muttered his answer, "Yes, alright. I'll go with you. As a date." Still he stared over C.C.'s head, trying to recall the name associated with that image. He remembered clearly now, she was a Warg, a fox beast-kin, but he couldn't place a finger one why she was important, or what her name was. Nevertheless, the more he seemed to stay in this body, the more memories were flooding back into the forefront of his mind. Some were good, some were bad, and all of them had been buried in Darkness by the trauma of Cataclama.

Home and Careers

"No... no..." She said shrugging off the pain and walked around to the other side of the desk. That's when the door to the classrom, previously closed, was kicked open and a hailstorm of bullets flew in through the doorway. Consuela was taking cover behind the desk. "Mister Class.... Kill them..." she said and pulled an M60 out from under her dress, leaving the others to wonder where she pulled it from exactly.
"I teach how to clean blood After..."

Home and Careers: David

"...Aw, hell no!" David managed to get out in the split seconds before the bullets started flying across the room.
"ONE FUCKING CLASS! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK!?!" He shouted as he flipped over his desk and used it as cover before returning fire with a full clip at the mystery gunmen.
"Little Help guys!?" He asked the others as he reloaded.

Home and Careers: David, Melethia

Melethia took a look at those there and handed David a few unassuming vials filled with a violently blue liquid. "You know what I can make, right? Toss it: it's some of my finest. I don't care who it is, it'll clear them right out." She tossed a returning dagger at the crowd, retrieving it as it returned while she made an opening in the ceiling vents, escaping through there. She could easily flank the gunmen through that path. As she went, she quickly set up a few well-placed traps to cover her path behind her as she made her way to where the attackers were supposed to be.

Home and Careers: David, Melethia

"...Alright, but if this backfires....Nevermind, I'd most likely be dead, wouldn't I?" David asked as Melethia nodded before she went off.
Shrugging it off, He loaded the Vial into the Wrist Gun in place of a bullet before firing at the attackers.
Once the vial broke in the air, The air filled with a extremely loud piercing screech, downing anyone unlucky enough to be in range as their ears bleed heavily.
Even David held his ears until the ringing.

The only question on this mind was this: How the hell does a Liquid make that kind of sound!?

Dmitri's World (The Tablet): A.I. Vermilion | Dmitri

Dimitri gave a soft chuckle as his much redder compatriot moved to close the distance between them, a gloved hand moving to a now unhooded cheek, "So long as my services are not required, you needn't ask that again.... Now, my dear, what is it you wish to speak on?"

Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Ton Ton

Ton Ton looked up at Melethia's vent crawling, and thought along the same lines as she did: The trap master was going for an attack from behind on the forces while they distracted them up front. Pointing up he 'sent' to his pact partner, "You go with Melethia to back up on the pincer attack, I'll take the front after that thing goes boom... Mr. West, if you be so kind with that explosive?"

As the tiny turtle zipped up, Ton Ton waited for David to launch the explosive, Knife and Lantern at the ready.

In the meantime, as Cadolbolg followed Melethia up the vent, his eyes widened as he saw the multitude of traps lining the walls. As he carefully followed along, he waved a friendly claw, "Hello! Friend Ton Ton said I should help with the pincer attack you're planning. I'm not entirely sure what that is, but I think it means attacking from behind, right? How can I help?"

After a moment, and hearing a horrible cacophony, the turtle dragon was VERY happy that he had decided to follow Melethia.

As for Ton Ton, he winced at the horrible sound that filled the air, but continued ahead, the Lantern and Knife primed and ready to take on any survivors of the sonic assault.


The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

When the Cleric saw Lucifer in the principal's office, a confused expression crossed her face as she spoke,

"Lucifer? What are-?"

And found herself being pulled into a comforting hug, as well as an explanation that the group had put themselves through this strange dimension. As this all ran through their minds, she lightly reached for the amulet, a comforting gesture before Garm barreled into her life. Speaking of the wolf, Garm found his way out of the bag and leapt onto Teri's lap as she sat herself in one of the chairs, causing a small smile to flicker on her face. Even in puppy form, her furry friend remaining ever the steadfast companion.

In the meantime, as they sat, Caim made a motion to ask what everyone's thinking: "I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't recall agreeing to any sort of school related occupation change, or mad Authors running amock!"

Angelus nodded in agreement, "Agreed. I don't remember even hearing about Mark going mad. In fact, the last thing I do recall-.... Well, it was a simple bit of minutia on the ship. Nothing about anything like this..."

Angelus was quick to catch herself. What she and David had found out from Dimitri moments before this shift in location, although somewhat important to several persons present in the room, it did not apply directly to the situation; and, frankly, could wait.

Speaking of the Cleric in question, Teri did find a bit of information confusing, and wondered aloud, "So we're in this school because Mark is crazy?"

Home and Careers: David, Melethia

"...Alright, but if this backfires....Nevermind, I'd most likely be dead, wouldn't I?" David asked as Melethia nodded before she went off.
Shrugging it off, He loaded the Vial into the Wrist Gun in place of a bullet before firing at the attackers.
Once the vial broke in the air, The air filled with a extremely loud piercing screech, downing anyone unlucky enough to be in range as their ears bleed heavily.
Even David held his ears until the ringing.

The only question on this mind was this: How the hell does a Liquid make that kind of sound!?

Melethia gave Cadolbolg a small high-five As they got over the main combat area, with her pulling out a small wand for the both of them. After tapping herself and Cadolbolg, she responded "SHould stop that sonic damage. now we wait for the right moment and hit them."

She saw some more shots from David and waited for that exact best moment before dropping down to stir panic in their ranks.

Lupito was still highly uncomfortable but was comforted for a moment by the helmet. That stopped rather quickly as he saw the curves that Gabs was about to head through, and he pouted with the trademark Puppy Dog Pout.

Up above, Melethia motioned to Cadolbolg to indicate it was time to start the ambush. Thanks to the sonic blast, the gunmen down below couldn't hear the impact of the shots. Those that were hit could feel them for a fraction for a second, adding to David, Puce, and Kurumu's already high body count. As for Puce and Kurumu, their ears were slowly recovering from the blast. Being on the outskirts of the radius had affected them a lot less than those that had been killed by the burst of sound.

The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Slindis shook her head. "Isolate the creative portions of his mind? I have a last spare bag of Holding, but we do need to find that part before we can do anything. We could store him in there, but that's a temporary measure at best.... Wait. She?"

Meanwhile, Devon pulled Ella aside and whispered to her. "Look, are you sure that's your dad? There's way too much that feels off, and he's bringing up the new head honcho. This feels too off to me."

Dmitri's World (The Tablet): A.I. Vermilion | Dmitri

Dimitri heard the smallest noise of complaint escape his lips when Vermilion rebooted herself, the need for it completely ruining the moment going between the two; as well as causing a minor scare for the Blue Butler. However, with Vermilion back on the couch again, and wondering what to do, Dimitri thought for a moment, "Hmn... It may be how you were created? I know Her Ladyship does not know the intrinsic workings of computers, but her will going into them seems to make things work out for the best, if it tires her out a little. That and I do not recall feeling a change when the connection to her was lifted. Perhaps I was able to move about a bit more, but otherwise, I do not know. I wonder, since you are no longer connected, perhaps her Ladyship could somehow create something that renders you completely autonomous of User: Mark's protocols? However, my main concern is that, because you are another Author's creation, she might not be able to affect your programming.... However, it is worth a shot, is it not?"

Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Miku | Puce | Sadei | Sean | Teri | Ton Ton

On Melethia's cue, Cadolbolg began raining fireballs and streaks of lightning to the enemies below, careful to not hit a friend's head in the process.

Ton Ton had waded in with his 'students', his tactics with Knife to the ankle and lantern to hands that drew too close to him. With the group being attacked on both ends, it was not hard for the forces to put a damper on the previously planned attack.

The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

As the group listened carefully to what Lucifer had to say, Teri couldn't help but feel something nag in the back of her mind as they processed this information. Looking straight into the eyes of the Angel she had found herself emotionally entangled in, she asked,

"You keep mentioning this other ruler getting to Mark's soul... Why aren't you ruling Hell anymore? What brought this other person to power?

Second, if it's Mark's creative center that's causing this mess, how will we know what it looks like when we find it?"

A small noise of thought escaped Angelus as she tried to put the pieces together, "I agree. If this thing we're looking for is so important, than the Author would guard it jealously. After all, he needs it for his craft."

Caim had another thought, "I wonder if this can be like one of those lucid dreams? Now that we're aware where we are, in a mind, I wonder if we can change things around us?"

Rugal

After hearing the preceding info-dump from Lucifer regarding Mark and the New Ruler of Hell, Rugal just sighed and rubbed his temples.
"Okay...So in order to get home and stop endless ruin to the entire universe...we have to find the source of Mark's Author Powers, which is somewhere in this building?
...
I just want to make sure you understand how bloody insane this entire situation sounds...God, is this really what being a Hero in this world is like?..." He remarked, feeling the urge for a hard drink right about now.

David

"Goddamn, this sounds like Raw X-Factor mixed with the Eurovision!" David Remarked after the sonic attack went off before firing another one into the hallway to help force back the incoming goons.
He'd set up a defensive zone around the door into the classroom, not allowing any gunmen in.

In the outside hallway, Melethia could see many more men with Balaclavas and gangland weaponry (Uzi's, AK-47's, etc) moving into position outside the classroom, some of them falling prey to the second Sonic attack.

The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

"Okay...So in order to get home and stop endless ruin to the entire universe...we have to find the source of Mark's Author Powers, which is somewhere in this building?
...
I just want to make sure you understand how bloody insane this entire situation sounds...God, is this really what being a Hero in this world is like?..."

Angelus snorted, the sentiment obviously shared between dragon and mortal, "Welcome to life upon the Rising Dawn."

Caim shrugged, "I got used to it after a while. Save the world, dimension hopping, metaphysical whatever, bring it on. I just don't care anymore."

Teri smiled faintly, still buzzing a little from the parting show of affection from a moment ago. Jokes about the madness of the Avatar Adventures universe were being thrown about, and she added in a pseudo-joking tone,

"Me and Mark collaborated on crazier stuff..."

This elicited a somewhat skeptical glance from the (mostly) mute warrior, and he responded, "Jests aside, we need to come up with a plan if we want out of here. How are we going to find the Author's creative center? What would it even look like?"

Angelus looked to Teri and Devon, and asked very pointedly, "We have two right here... Perhaps you could glean a better idea of what this creative creature would look like?"

Teri thought for a moment, her brow coming together deeply as she pondered the idea, "Well, the only thing I can think of is to think of what inspires Mark. He likes writing about people, and they interact. And there's also the old concept of muses; Goddesses of inspiration... But i could be going out on a limb there..."

"Any ideas, Devon? Also, the floor is open if anyone else has a plan...."

Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Ton Ton

Ton Ton stood by, and said very calmly to David, "Do you have a backup plan if they break through? I will do my best to defend this class if they do, but there is only so much I can attack at once. They could slip by me...."

{Outside the class of horrors}

Cadolbolg took this chance to attack more of the oncoming strikers with shots of lightning from his maw, hoping that there'd be some metal on the equipped men. If there was one thing Cadolbolg did remember as a construct, it was that electricity really hurt when you were made of metal.

A boy around the age of 17 or 18 was running for his life. He had been running away from the men in the grey suits. As he ran down the completely white hallway he could hear the walls whisper to him "Incompetent... Disgrace... Failure..." He was scared, tired, and lonely. He then rounded a corner to see two men in grey standing there. Their blank soulless stares scaring him even more. The boy then charged at them and tackled one to the ground. Grabbing him by the head and then twisting as hard as he could hearing a satisfying 'POP' as the mans neck snapped. He turned around only to see the man life the butt of his gun and hit him squarely in the head....

Just outside the school
Shadow

Shadow sat upwards with a start. He swore as he realized he was not wearing his regular outfit. he appeared to be wearing a Orange hoodie. His hood pulled over his head, and he was wearing jeans.

Lucky for him his hood covered most of his head and what it didnt cover it shrouded the rest in shadow.

He slowly rose up to see that Taytum was lying on the ground several feet away dressed in a school uniform. Thats when he realized something...

He looked down at his hands to see that they look... younger?

Shadow had no clue what was going on, but he was going to find out soon enough. He assumed that one of the crew members of the Rising Dawn were somewhere around here, and that they could help him understand what was going on.

That was when Shadow shook Taytum to wake her and and then helped her to her feet. "Master where are we?" She asked as Shadow looked at his surroundings.

He noted that he was literally on school grounds, before turning around and replying "I don't know...."

The Headmaster's Office: Angelus | Caim | Devon | Ella | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Slindis turned to those there. "No matter our choice, we won't be figuring out anything by just standing around in here. It is possible that it could be a female, but we need to keep out minds open. Just don't do anything drastic without communicating with the others - a false move will tip him off. If he cares more about the communications, the creative center has to be a student." With that, she opened the door and led the others outside.

When they got out, she looked over to Rugal. "I know this sounds insane, but there's not much we can do but work through it. If it helps you, you at least have allies that aren't looking for a moment of weakness now."

As Devon walked out with Ella, he turned to Teri. "Just curious, do you know any way to make some communication path between me and Ella here? I know she'll be joining me with Ton-Ton and Cadolbolg, but it would help if we could talk more."

Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Ton Ton

Melethia fired around Cadolbolg, spreading much discord in the ranks from David's second sonic blast and the others dropping around them. Thanks to her moving between two vents, it kept the strikers from pinpointing her exact position.

Rugal

Rugal smirked slightly at Slindis's comment, recalling the days when his allies would shank him to death at any given moment.
"Still...At least then all I had to worry about then was myself..." He said afterwards, shooting a quick smile at the drow.
He then turned to Teri and Devon and said "You two get back to Class, the target might be a student so keep an eye out. We'll check out the staff. Everyone report anything you find." He said to the others, trying to think if he saw anything that might have been this Source of Creativity.

David

"Back-up Plan!? This IS the back-up plan! You expected me to be prepared for this!?" David shouted over the sonic blasts as he did his best to stop them from entering.
"Here, take my gun. I got these new ones." He then said before giving Ton Ton his fabled M500, something that would be extremely out of character for the sniper.

The poor saps with guns were affected the most by Cadolbolg's lighting while Melethia's attacks managed to get several that were trying to flee.
It was then that they saw a few more with thicker body armor and what appeared to be Stun Rods.

All the gunfire and Sonic Booms could be heard by Shadow, someone was having fun...

Jenny

All the while, Jenny watched as Kura attempted to make her contraption work, nodding off slightly in the process.
"Kura, is it done yet?..." she yawned, wondering what the others were doing.

Shadow

Shadow smiled as he began walking towards the sound of gunfire. That was when he realized he was missing something...

"MY GUN!!!" Shadow shouted as he looked around for a second. After a few seconds of searching he saw it on the ground..

His beloved 50 cal Beretta Explosive Tip sniper rifle. He quickly picked it up and strapped it around his back as he told Taytum to transform into gun mode. He quickly grabbed her and headed towards the sounds of battle.

30 seconds later

Shadow rounded a corner to see multiple people fighting including his favorite crazed gunman (as he liked to call him).

He quickly pulled out his sniper and made a couple of the enemies heads explode as he shot them.

As Devon walked out with Ella, he turned to Teri. "Just curious, do you know any way to make some communication path between me and Ella here? I know she'll be joining me with Ton-Ton and Cadolbolg, but it would help if we could talk more."

Giving a wave to the adults as the teachers left, Teri looked to her amulet for a moment, and said, "Right at the moment, I can think of two different things. One, I need to remember how my DM homebrewed a pair of trinkets just like that or ask Luci how he made this one... When should I ask him, I wonder.... If he's with the Boss at the moment, then I wouldn't want to interrupt that... And which class do we have again, Devon? I got so caught up in all this stuff, I completely forgot..."

In the meantime, the teachers walked along the way, and a loud gurgle was heard among them. Having fought many forms of creatures, the group was on edge.... till they realized the noise was coming from Caim's stomach. With a laugh, Angelus spoke up, "Caim's stomach brings up a good point. There's no use sitting around wondering while we're hungry. Shall we?"

Home and Careers Class of Horrrrrors: Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Puce | Ton Ton

Ton Ton looked at the weapon with confusion, or at least, as best a blank faced creature as a Tonberry could manage looking confused, and shouted, "I appreciate the offer, sir, but I don't know how to use this thing! I don't want to hurt anyone by misfiring!"

"JUST POINT IT AND SHOOT AT SOMEONE'S WHO NOT US!"

"Uh.... Okay?!"

And so the Tonberry found himself pointing the, to his small stature, what equated to a cannon at the door, and readied a shot at the door, shooting a hole in it in the process; as well as making him nearly drop it due to the kickback. The Tonberry was very terrified at firing again, as he did not feel the same level of control over this weapon as he did his usual arsenal.

"What did he just hand me?!"

Cadolbolg, on the other hand, dropped down from the vent, and decided to draw fire away from the trap master via flying in the air and shooting fire at the troops in the thicker body armor. Hopefully, his flames would melt whatever material the stuff was made of. At least, that's what Dragon fire did, right? Or was that just because of his Mother being as fully grown as she was?

Rugal, Slindis, Caim, ANgelus

Rugal smirked slightly at Slindis's comment, recalling the days when his allies would shank him to death at any given moment.
"Still...At least then all I had to worry about then was myself..." He said afterwards, shooting a quick smile at the drow.
He then turned to Teri and Devon and said "You two get back to Class, the target might be a student so keep an eye out. We'll check out the staff. Everyone report anything you find." He said to the others, trying to think if he saw anything that might have been this Source of Creativity.

Slindis noted Caim's hunger and nodded in agreement. "We should all get something to eat, that much is true. Unfortunately, it seems that first year teachers have to eat with the rest of the students, so we won't likely get any peace. Still, if we want to get there before it gets too packed, we should go now." To be honest, she'd needed some food as well. She just wasn't about to point it out to everyone else.

Melethia, Cadolbolg, Shadow

Her next arrows nearly missed Shadow as she aimed for the small gaps in the body armor that she could find, although her attacks weren't quite as effective due to having to take a bit more time loosing the arrows. They still felt the burn from the Holy on the arrows and the unusually sharp nature of the arrows, though, and that was almost worse than the arrows themselves.

Doing good out there, Turtleback. We'll draw out the guy leading them in no time, and then we can gut him.

Devon, Teri, Ella

Devon thought about for it for a moment, finally coming to a conclusion. "I do have one idea... What about using the Message spell over some necklaces or rings? In any case, our next class is... home and careers? Really? I think I'll head to Applied Food and Nutrition instead. What about you? I know me and Ella need a bite to eat."

Shadow, Melethia, Cadolbolg

Shadow was nearly hit by the incoming arrows and that alone was enough to piss him off.

"HEY FUCKTARDS! IM ON YOUR SIDE!" he shouted as he took cover to dodge some bullets heading his way.

He then leaned back out of cover, and shot a few more rounds before retreating a bit to where he could try to take cover from everyone.

Rugal

"I'll pass. I've heard too many jokes about how bad the food in High Schools are to be on the receiving end of the punchline." Rugal said to the others as they went down to the canteen.
Sticking by those words, he elected to have another glass of water instead.

David

Without taking his aim off the door for a second, David pulled Ton Ton off the ground by his hood and planted him back behind cover.
He then picked up the gun, shoved it back in his hands and gave him a pat on the head, all without having his eye's stray from the doorway.

Gangland Goons

The re-enforcements would need some re-enforcements as the combined effort of Melethia, Cadolobolg and Shadow managed to decimate their numbers, leaving the hallway a massive bloody mess.
It was only supposed to be a 3 hour mission, a 3 hour mission!
It would seem that they won...

Angelus | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

Caim shrugged at the sentiment as they walked along, his nonchalance showing through, even in his computerized 'voice', "Can't be much worse than what we were served in the barracks."

Angleus gave one of her trademark "Hmphs!" and shook her head, "Perhaps it will actually be cooked thoroughly this time around, instead of raw hunks of meat that your bodies could not handle..."

Without meaning to, the dragon turned human could already feel hunger churning in her stomach as well, and licked her lips in anticipation of something, anything to feast upon. To an ongoing looker, it certainly wasn't a human way to express ones' self.

Devon | Ella | Teri

Teri looked hesitant to follow Devon, seeing as her father had specifically told her to go the class, as well as the mission of finding Mark's Creative Center or whatever it was. With a small shake of her head, she pointed towards the class' direction, or at least what she thought was the direction of the class,

"I can eat later. Right now, I'm looking for the you-know-what in the classes. You go on ahead if you want, but I can poof myself something if I get that hungry. Later!"

And with that, she began to make her way to class, Devon and Ella following behind out of a want to watch their friend's back.

Ton Ton | David

When David put the gun back in Ton Ton's hands, the little creature felt very sheepish, and called out, "Sorry! I've never used this kind of weapon before... Perhaps when this is over, I can get proper instruction from you, should this come up again! Now, where should I position myself with it? Maybe over... Here!"

Leaping up on a desk with the Revolver in tow, Ton Ton found that his ability to aim higher was a lot easier when he had a similar height to the enemies he was combating....

Cadolbolg | Melethia | Shadow

"Thank you, Friend Melethia! Now, should I hide in the vent again, or would staying out here work better for our strategy?"

Looking back to Shadow, Ton Ton tilted his head in interest, "I think I have seen you before with my Mother and Father.... Who are you, Acquaintance....?"

Location: Home Economics | Avatar Adventure Highschool

Aftan | C.C. | Cadolbolg | David | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kenneth | Lucieon | Lucretia | Matt | Maya | Melethia | Miku | Puce | Sadei | Sean | Teri | Ton Ton

It was an unconscious movement. His arms fell around C.C.'s waist as she took the shrapnel to her back and caught her before she hit the ground. His hands, still lukewarm with the essence of humanity splashed into the warmth of her blood, cooling in the air and in her clothes. Lucieon was shocked, almost unable to think. The attack was so sudden and the deafening explosions of the rifles hurt his ears and mind. He was unaccustomed to such means of warfare, they were very different from the sword and sorcery he experienced in his homeland. Unable to think, he tugged C.C. with him onto the floor, away from the men flinging death from rifles. The rest of the group took to the fight valiantly, raising weapons of their own and striking out at the enemies with great fervor and emotion.

Yer Lucieon could not find it in his heart to stand up and fight. He held C.C. in his hands and watched the blood flow from her wounds. Years of contemporary medical knowledge failed him, all of his expertise seemed to have been swallowed by the excitement in the air. He whispered again, "Are you okay?" but this time did not wait for the answer. His hands fell upon her clothes and tore open the bloodstained circles, exposing the shrapnel wounds to the open air. He closed his eyes and ran a finger over her skin to check for metal debris. A short gasp escaped C.C. when his fingers drew blood from some of the fresh cuts. "No, you are not okay. Not this time."

He pulled out his sorcerer's catalyst and pressed it lightly against C.C.'s skin. "Remedy," a soft blue glow spread across the wounds and stopped the bleeding. It did not coagulate the blood, nor did it heal the wound. It only cured the symptoms of the injury. They pain, the muscle tension, and the bleeding. It would have to do until she got proper medical attention and could have the shrapnel removed. If she was a firekeeper, it would have been easy to remedy her with his Estus Flask, with its beautiful golden substance that pulled the power directly from a bonfire's many burning souls. But if she were not a firekeeper and merely a pyromancer, the effect would turn her undead, like him. Forever bound to wander the earth collecting humanity so that they would not become insane.

He placed both hands on C.C.'s head and pulled her close to him, hiding her body under his own. Her warmth was still soft and warm even in the chaos flying around them. He had to protect this one. He was afraid of this one, yet he felt so compelled to hold her close so that no further harm could come.

Angelus | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

Caim shrugged at the sentiment as they walked along, his nonchalance showing through, even in his computerized 'voice', "Can't be much worse than what we were served in the barracks."

You shouldn't have said that, Caim...

The food being served that day was much less impressive than expected, to say the least. It was the perfect dieting food, though, since with how it tasted, nobody would ever holding it down. "Do you have something that's actually palatable? Edible? Consumable by anything?"

She doubted that even her fortitude could handle such an appalling meal, and from the horrid smell, she doubted it was very healthy.

Devon | Ella | Teri

Devon saw the last of the first wave of attacks, although he heard the plodding of steps down the hallway. It wasn't quite clear what had happened, but after he asked Cadolbolg, he drew his shortsword for the defense. He also thought of ways to misdirect what was coming as well, eventually settling on one fairly good option.

Ella brought her Kamas forth from the Weapon wheel and began flying to back up Devon in the attack.

Cadolbolg | Melethia | Shadow

Melethia called to Cadolbolg. "When the boss comes, we strike. Aim for the joints: that should slow him down a lot.

Angelus | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

One glance at the "Food" and Rugal felt he made the right choice, the sound of him sipping through a straw providing ambient noise at they literally picked their poison.
"As a man who has actually eaten out of a dumpster once...This looks awfully familiar..." He quipped as he went looking for a vending machine, taking his chances there after then this deep fried excuse.

Gangland Mooks

The steps got closer and closer as the ringleader for this attack showed himself, a mountain of yellow flesh turning the corner holding several disposable RPG-7s.

"You. Pay. Now. Bitch!" He shouted as he attempted to go though the others to reach their Janitor of a teacher.

David

David meanwhile peeked through the doorframe and saw the hulking beast.
"...I hate this school..." He sighed as he went to see if he had anymore of those Sonic Boom Vials left.

Angelus | Caim | Rugal | Slindis

Unfortunately, the school had removed their vending machines years ago to promote healthier eating. Not that their food was much better... Rugal could see Slindis eating some jerky at one of the tables and taking a swig from that waterskin she'd used when they were tracking down the flower.

"There's no way those kids are fed right..."

Gangland Mooks

When Devon saw the overwhelming man, he instantly chanted a spell. "You think we would come alone? You are mistaken, you overgrown ape.

After he finished his statement, there was a fog that filled the area that quickly dissipated as a very unsettling noise filled the area.

Devon casts Major Image! Perhaps due to the nature of the image, it requires a saving throw of 19 (10 base, 3 from the spell level, 6 from the charisma modifier {23, or +6})

30 seconds until the next level 3 spell.

David

There was one of the vials left, but there was now the big issue of Teri, Ella, and Devon being in the firing range at this point.

Shadow

"I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!" Shadow shouted as he made more heads pop as he unloaded more rounds. Then he realized something....

He was out of ammo for his favorite gun.

Shadow sighed as he held Taytum in his palms. "Taytum transform" he commanded as he charged with a kick ass sword in his hand.

'Slice, slash, slice' Shadow thought as he gleefully cut down anything in his path. He then ran past a few guards an sliced the back of the giants knee hoping to slow him down. He then backed off as he took a couple bullets in the arm.

"Is anyone else having as much fun as I am?!?!" Shadow yelled out as he decapitated another human.

Gangland Elite Mook

The Giant was unfazed by the sudden increase in their numbers, he'd ate babies before and this time they would be cooked.
He brought out on of his several RPGs and pointed it at the vision of babies, though the explosion would most likely still do a lot of damage.
Before he could that however, Shadow managed to throw off his aim by cutting his knee.
He didn't like that in the slightest as he shouted "Oh, I'M GOING TO FLOSS MY TEETH WITH YOUR SPINE!" before attempting to aim at Shadow, the constant babies throwing him off.

Shadow

Shadow was having a hard time comprehending what was happening. Everything was much bigger... but yet when he sliced at them they still died just as easy.

Well that was until he happened to run back into the same giant who he slashed and didnt do that much. "Oh shit..." was all that Shadow muttered as he was sent flying through the air from a kick to the chest.

Shadow quickly got trying to quickly get out of whatever was making him see things.
