OOC: Great, I come back from fencing to find nothing. Ugh.
OoC: It's hard when the main antagonistic isn't here...
OOC: I don't like calling knife an antagonist yet...well maybe Jack...
OoC: Who are both played by Knife... it's more the fact right now, everyone wants to see the Doc, but Doc isn't here. But I definitely see where you are coming from.
OoC: After tomorrow is Wednesday... no plot happens on Wednesdays...
OOC: Don't forget, after tomorrow anyway, I'll be able to focus on the RP more, so we can develop the plot surrounding my antagonist.
OOC: Yeah, but unless you want to bring your bad guy to the moon, we still have sort at least some of this other stuff out first.
Doc Sparkle had gone into a state of shock when they had opened fire on the books. To add insult to injuiry, they had started in her private collection IT HAD TAKEN HER MILLENNIA TO GATHER THAT COLLECTION!!
Doc Sparkle snapped out of stuppor, and advanced on the group, encased in green fire and crackeling green lightning.
I TRY to be a good librarian, BUT IT IS A BIT HARD WHEN YOU START DESTROYING THE READING MATTERIAL!!! Everyone but her is flung into the air and suspended there. Now, where are my manners. My name is Doc Sparkle, and welcome to my library. I would offer some of the fine reading material, but SOME-PEOPLE have taken it upon themselves to DESTROY most of it.
Omega is thrown up into the air, the book he was partially finished with fell to the ground. "I was getting to the good part! Let me down! What is the secret!"
Joe looks on as everyone is flung into the air. "Hey I'm the only one using a jet pack here, why are you all copying me?! Also why can't I move?"
"Now, now...Ms. Sparkle...I apologize for my companions brutish and insolent behavior. And I think I speak for everyone when I say we only want to have a peaceful discussion with you." Will glared at his companions, daring any of them to disagree.
A tumble weed rolls along the library as everyone is held up at the mercy of the Doc.
OOC: I'm going to assume that Doc Sparkle's thing is done by magic which, as I have already stated, Mat is immune to.
Mat is the only one unmoved by the sudden arrival of the odd horse. "Well, I for one saved this copy of Comadrin's 'Fog and Steel.' On a related note, may I keep this book? I quite like it. Also, could you let my friends and the other ones down please? I know they're idiots, but that's no reason to threaten to kill them."
"Mat, you can move?! Can you pass me that book on the ground there, I was just about to get to the good part and I want to learn the secret of what was under the floorboards!" Omega shouts over to Mat, as he tries in vane to reach the book he was reading.
"I am not an idiot. I didn't even destroy any books." Will grumbled..
"This book?" Mat gestures to the one Joe seemed to be reaching to. Idly, he looked over what was on it. "Wow." He said, "Really, that was quite a twist. No one could have predicted it, and it makes perfect sense. That might just be the greatest secret in any book, ever."
"What was it!? Space aliens, a snake, the tooth fairy, a ham sandwich!? I got to know!! Gimme it please!!"
"I don't think that you're ready for this." Mat said, "No, this is going right here." He places it in the overturned bookcase. "Besides, I think you're likely to destroy it, and we don't want to make this guy...horse, whatever, angrier."
"I'm not the exact same as Joe!!" Omega shouts reaching for the book now. "I like poems and stuff! Come on I was reading that thing for hours!!"
Joe looks over to Mat. "He's not lying... He's immature, but he likes his literature!"
"Uggghh...the company I choose to keep." Will groaned as he rubbed his temple in frustration.
"Us neither... You think she's mad you burned her black licorice?" Joe looks over at Will as he turns his jetpack off.
"What does black licorice have to do with anything?" Mat asked.
"I certainly hope not." Will said to Joe.
"Forget the licorice, give me the book please!" Omega asks Mat.
"We got teleported in here a while ago. The Doc had served us 'candy', but it was black licorice... No one likes that stuff." Joe answers Mat.
OoC: I'm off... not helping a bookworm... for shame...
The book levetated from the shelf, and set to hover next to Omega Joe.
Now, I do believe that introductions are in order.
"I am General William Tecumseh Sherman. Now would you please let me down?" Will said.
"Mat Cauthon. But I wouldn't need to make that if you were someone to hide from."
OOC: Going to call it a night soon.
OOC: That's it guys got to call it. Have fun and I'll see you tomorrow.
The Peregrine Mendicant phases out of the study, to behind Eragon and Legion. "Your friends are in trouble upstairs, this Doc Sparkle has captured them."
In the distance a roar is heard, the tunnel shaking a little.
"Commander Shepard. Now, I understand that you're upset, but many people in this group have reason to be upset as well. Just let us down, so that we can negotiate on equal terms."
"Grunt, of clan Urdnot. Now let me the hell down and when you do I might just decide not to eat you."
The pressure on Grunts neck increases ever so slightly. Not enough to cause any pain, but enough to be noticeable.
Word of advice Mr Urdnot, don't threaten the pony that can kill you on a whim.
She turns to Jack and all but smirks (An impossible feat without a mouth).
I see we meet again Mr Noir. I like your new arm. It'll make such a nice decoration.
"The only thing it'll be decorating is your face if you don't let me down."
"Delta Team Officer Theta. Can I just mention that it was all Gamma and Upsilon-
"No it wasn't. That Grunt guy did it. I was just scamming Joe."
"Well yes, Grunt too. But we were kind of trying to get your attention."
Legion listened to the Peregrine Medicant's warning, then turned to Eragon.
"Shepard-Commander is in danger. We will return." Without waiting for an answer, he turned and went back up to the library.
Meanwhile, Grunt glared at Upsilon.
"What, you don't have the quad to answer to your own actions? I should skin you alive."
Eragon was hesitant to return with the others. He wasn't sure whether he was near Saphira or not. He watched the machine turn and begin to hurry backwards through the winding corridors. Eragon grimaced, gritted his teeth and started to run after Legion.
Alastair was stamding next to Jack. Xavier near Will and Sofia next to shepard. Their heavy space suits clung them to the ground. "Look these people are idiots i agree, primitive true. But it gives you no right to treat them like this." Alastair was saying still keeping one eye on Jack, The vision of someone saying that Jack was a killer was knawing at Alastair's mind. Xavier picked up the great book and started chanting. "Helments on!" Alastair replied at the chant and placed everyones helmets on again. "Doc, put a helmet on. Jack the same." Alastair said as he placed helmets on them. Sofia saw Will didnt have one and muttered an inaudible spell creating a helmet. "Here you are genral." She said. The chant complete the window's started to smash and the books set ablaze. "Tell us where Sapphire is and why Jack is evil!?! NOW!" Alastair demanded.
OOC: Wanted some action to happen in libary.
Eragon had lost sight of Legion in the winding corridors and contined to run through the maze of passageways, hoping to find his way back.
OOC: Burning the rest of Doc Sparkles books in attempt to make her cooperate will only make the demonic, world altering and omnicient pony that obsesses over books and is all ready pissed off at losing some while tring to be civil is a sure fire way to get your character killed.
