"Over there." Pointing to the city.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

"Amazing! Magic? Telekinesis?" (Could you read my mind? Hmm...)
Shocked, scared, excited,a flurry of emotions and ideas ran through his mind. Ending with the point of the sword really.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, Above the Canopy of a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

"Ah, one of those serious actors eh? I'll go along with that." Ducking down in to the canopy hegan to work his way down.

Aeronwen, In a Mall At Night, Modern(?) Times

Her distressed calls lent her only strange looks and deaf ears, no one offered her help with her search, did they not know who she was? Did they not understand the urgency of the situation? Disheartened she sighed as she tried to asses the situation. Light flowed from the ceiling, but she could she no candles, nor could she sense any sorcery about it. Many people where here but dressed as monsters and creatures of the night, some where masks, others wore paint on their faces; did they want to keep their identity secret? Had she stumbled onto a secret gathering of sorcerers?

Someone wearing a mask resembling a humourless smile approached her, this was the perfect opportunity for her questions to be answered. A group of men followed him, if he was a sorcerer then he must be a powerful one, to have so many apprentices.

"Well hello there lovely, get lost to a party, or care to find one?" Voice full of confidence, and physique well toned.

He spoke words, but she didn't understand the language. It wasn't welsh and it didn't sound like the Anglisc the border people of Mercia spoke. Since she didn't recognise it, she decided that the rift must have taken her far away from her homeland, where was she then? Maybe if she used the spell that Mabinogi had taught her, it would translate Anglisc, but she wasn't certain it would translate this strange tongue.

She held her staff between her hands to help concentrate her power, as she cast the spell, the markings on her head and eyes glowed with light, so did the stone on the top of her staff. The spell complete she felt drained, she wouldn't be able to keep it up for long, but it should be long enough to get her answers.

"Are you a sorcerer?" She asked smiling. "And could you repeat what you said before?"

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

"Amazing! Magic? Telekinesis?" (Could you read my mind? Hmm...)

Yes, I can, she thought to herself. A bit, anyway. But you don't need to know that.

Deciding she'd had enough of this, she started side-stepping around the thing that tried to attack her, keeping her sword pointed at him, until she was halfway around him. Then she quickly turned and sprinted toward the mainland, sheathing her sword when she was far enough away. She made a point of holding onto the gun-device. She didn't figure asking this thing what was going on would do any good, since neither could understand the other, except in one way, and she hadn't learned how to project thoughts yet.

She started running toward the big, glowing orange bridge. She needed to climb something big. Climbing helped her calm down for some reason, and despite all outward appearances, she was ready to scream.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

Dune began walking towards the city, but keeping his eyes open for anything, he still has no clue where he is.
"Were your parents wearing costumes or anything?"

Saoshyan, Climbing down a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times
With a combination of slipping, sliding and a small amount of climbing, they somehow made it to the lower branches of the tree, and stopped to catch their breath.
Saoshyan turned to say something, and felt the magic trickling away. He lifted a hand, and made a strange pulling motion.
"We do not have much time. I will not understand you after just a moment, and I still don't know where we are. We may need to resort to hand gestures, if need be. Otherwise, we won't be able to speak." Saoshyan said regretfully.
The man said something in response, but he had released the spell and the languages were seperated once again.
(Avestan- I do not understand you, friend. My apologies.)
He gestured towards the ground, and continued the climb down.

Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times
Leigh was a bit confused. "Trespassing? I'm just passing through though; I only stopped because I wanted to appreciate how high I fell from." She indicated the Empire State building, towering behind her.
"I just do not quite understand as to why I have to leave through the building. I can easily jump to another, if my presence here bothers you." These kinds of issues were often few and far between in her own city, where the management wouldn't accept the damage done by the automaton couriers in certain areas. Residential were usually off limits, but there were exceptions, and Leigh figured that considering the colossal size of the majority of the structures she was surrounded by, that they were not residential.

Aeronwen, In a Mall At Night, Modern(?) Times

Letting out a low whistle, "How wonderful and cute, would you care to join me and my companions on a journey of magic and discovery?"
The magic had worked, but it seemed distorted to her ears, like what he was saying wasn't quite what she heard.
His tone was theatrical, tinged with a bit of good humor and sarcasm, and though it was hard to tell his facial expression, his brown eyes twinkled.
Roughly though with some care, he moved to her side and grabbed her by the shoulder, the faint smell of alcohol on his breath, and began to gently steer her to his group.
The group was chuckling or giggling, and was about 5 people.
One was dressed like a werewolf, dressed in tattered jeans, and torn sneakers with paws and claws sticking out from it.
His chest, shoulders, and armed looked like movie magic along with his hands, his mask was a crowning point, and looked rather real. The eyes were dull yellow orbs, the teeth sharp and shining, the mouth slightly opened showed a damp red tongue, while inside a faint gleam like yes, or perhaps a throat slick with blood.
Next to him was a blue eyed brunette, wearing a red hood and cloak, holding a basket like purse. With a small white dress in a Swedish fashion, he red heels and matching lips made her stunning in all the wrong ways.
Her face clearly showed distaste towards Aerowen.
Two of them were twins, one dressed in a black suit, the other in white. Both with silver hair (dyed), and blue eyes, both were grinning.
The last was another girl, dressed like a witch, broom, pointy hat and all, her skin was green. Not as in ill, but green as the Wicked Witch.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

A faint noise came from behind her from the fallen figure, but was lost as Michi began to gain speed. It was a decent distant from the bridge and running next too the shore seemed to be the easiest path.
Faintly a whining buzz was coming from across the water, now noticeable to her. It maintained its strength for a period of time, and simply seemed to be following as she ran.

Ryans Solution:
Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

A few more cars passed by as they walked alongside the bridge,
"Ummm, my mom was dressed like a bunny, and my dad was a knight. We were walking home, and then I was at the bridge, and then I saw you."
Faintly a whining noise was coming nearby, his suit getting static as it reached his ears past the din of the occasional car passing.
It was evident, and seemed to be coming from his left and right. From the left it was weak but growing, from the right it was maintaining force.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, Climbing down a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

The man paused and spoke, but instead just gave a thumbs up smiling.
Before Saoshyan could continue downwards, he was roughly grabbed by the back of his clothes upwards. With more strength then he could imagine, Ezekiel pulled him back, Motioning with his free hand to be quiet, he pointed down.
Below them it seemed like Raptors, brightly colored and slightly feathered, 5-7 of them were walking around their tree.

"Wait, your telling me you jumped from all the way up there (points towards the Empire State), to here (points at his feet)" Brian had taken a few steps closer.
"What are you? Some kind of Parkour Extreme Sports Gal? How could you even jump from this building?" Disbelief quite evident, most of the surrounding buildings were a a couple floors higher or lower then the current one they were on.
The sounds of a helicopter were coming from somewhere nearby, the gentle chopping of wind clear oddly enough.

Wigbert, Fair Grounds in N. California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Wigbert turned around slowly, eyes burning blue, his wing sprouted out his back and his arm glowed brighter. He raised it towards the faux-knights forehead, and let out one arrow. He then unsheathed his blade, ready to do battle with the remaining man.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Michi, after noticing the buzzing noise, slowed and eventually stopped, trying to pinpoint its source. This world was fascinating; so many things she'd never seen before. Was this a new thing for her to discover?

Alexei weighed up his options. He was in an army convoy, in whatever country, being taken to an unknown location. Was he actually in danger? Would it be safer to grab the survival bag and leap off of the back of a speeding truck? He doubted he could survive the fall without injury. Or without being hit by another vehicle in the convoy.

He reached into the capsule and fished out his gun, a tiny makarov, from the survival kit. He tucked it out of sight, into his survival suit, and took a deep breath. Alexei crawled over to the back window of the cab and gently knocked on it.

(Russian: "Hello? Would you mind stopping?")

Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times
Leigh giggled at him, her appreciation at his humour eclipsing whatever worry she might have had were she taking his questions seriously. "Of course I do parkour, I would not be a very good courier without it, and, well I jumped, obviously." She pointed to her legs again, kicking them out before her.
"You know, the hydraulics; all down here, providing the power, shock absorbers; easing the landing, and here," She indicated the bottom of her foot, balancing perfectly as she aimed it at the young man's face. "The heel, made of the strongest alloys available, strengthened and toughened to withstand all of my parkour." She looked thoughtful for a second. "Oh, and these." Her talons flicked out from their sheathes, glinting in the torch light and the orange-yellow haze from above. "Keeps me attached if I decide to go climbing.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

Dune stopped walking and started looking around trying to figure out where the noise was coming from.

Saoshyan, bottom limbs of a big tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times
Saoshyan looked at the beasts, startled. He had seen the bones of such beasts in the great deserts, but never alive.
He thought for a moment, then lifted his arm, and clenched his fist. It burst into flame with a small whoosh. He clenched it harder, and the flames rose slowly. He concentrated carefully, then threw the ball of flame down among the lizard monster things.

The person on the beach met another, and decided to make sand castles with him. Birds and crabs looked as sand began to rise and fall by hand.

(Remember, location posting and all please)
(While both the men have attacked you, neither has gone for a tackle or anything like that. One has smacked you in the head, the other your shoulder. I guess I should have made it more clear on what they were doing, and the amount of time you have. This is combat reaction time, as in fast and furious, not do a push up and lazily swing. I apologize on my part.)

Ultraman950:
Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

It was in the direction of the water and didn't seem to be coming from anywhere, but everywhere at the same time.
The air began to taste strange, almost metallic.

Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

(Location, remember? You do need to post it in your post, in bold. Makes it easier to keep track of players later on, and for quotes.)
Turning around to look at the knocking, the soldier in the passenger seats face could be described as, surprise.
Fumbling with his rifle, he shouted something in English to the driver.
Slamming down on the breaks, the driver lurched forward, while the rifle slipped out of the others hand.
As for Alexei his faced smacked in to the window, causing a small crack, and bound to leave a bruise. The gun still in hand, the screeches of breaks behind him were evident.

"Pinch me, I must be dreaming..." Backing off from her a bit, Brian looked at her talons.
"On second thought, don't," looking around as the sound of a chopper was growing, he seemed to think for a second.
"Okay, Leigh, I think you should come with me. You're obviously not from around here, and with what has been going on... Well, it isn't exactly safe for you to go jumping around."
His voice was hesitant but was friendly enough, his eyes were back to looking at hers instead of the talons.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

"Why'd you stop?" Sam (Samy, Salmon) bumped in to Dune as he halted. The whining was now constant and it seemed only Dune was hearing it as no cars stopped, and Sam just looked around puzzled.
His suit was beginning to read system failures, and began clogging his view with pointless bits of light and binary.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, bottom limbs of a big tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

"Good show!" Ezekiel fired his gun down as well towards them, making a loud bang and a flashly bloom of spoke and fire. As the ball of flames reached the ground, it burst and sizzled against soggy moss and foliage, causing the Raptors to scatter.
No evident effect from Ezekiel's gun could be scene from above.
"Lets get down, I'm sure those buggers won't be back any time soon." While his voice couldn't be understood, his actions were clear enough as he grabbed a nearby vine.
Cutting it and giving a few sharp tugs, he repeated the process gathering a decent length.

Saoshyan, rapidly approaching the ground below a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times
The loud noise startled Saoshyan, who nearly slipped off his precarious perch. Evidently, he had been right, but the eastern weapons were only fire and smoke, and not so loud as that. Not to mention useless from such a distance. He resolved that if he cast the babel spell again, he would ask what the device was.
Righting himself, he saw what Ezekiel was doing, and moved to help, using his small dagger to saw through the vines.
Once they had cut a reasonable number, they braided them, in a way- Ezekiel seemed to have been meaning to tied them end-to-end, but Saoshyan had already dangled by a single vine once that day, and had no interest in doing it again. So they braided two of such rope, and it seemed sturdy enough. It took far longer, but vines so far down the tree weren't likely to be safe by themselves, Saoshyan decided.
Once it was done, about half an hour had passed. They tied the vine-ropes to the branch, and tied the end around their waists, then resumed the climb down.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Michi stared out over the water, occasionally looking around, trying to pinpoint the source of the sound in vain... The air started tasting funny in a different way. It was unnerving, and fear started replacing her curiosity.

What's going on...? she thought. I don't want to be here anymore... I want to go home...

Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Alexei, wincing from the impact his head had made with the glass, slowly rose to his feet. What language were those drivers speaking in? It sounded like English. Alexei had a sudden feeling of dread. is this the USA? Did Vostok really go that far off course?

He wondered whether he should make a run for it, rather than be captured by a foreign nation. There wasn't much time to think, and soon the men with rifles would be all around him. As he weighed up the possibility of making a run for it, a thought occurred to him: The CCCP will know where I landed! They will find me, and ask for my return!

Alexei smiled to himself and kept still. He held his hands in view, so as to not frighten the soldiers any further.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

Fucking AIs no... Hackers, someone has to be watching, i'll have to wipe later.

Dune ripped his helmet off his head and cut power to it. He looked around frantically for another minute before going to the power switches on his wrist, cutting power to any other powered systems on his armour, which were mainly diagnostics for the medics.

He hooked his now unpowered helmet to a loop on his lift hip, and pulled his rifle back off of his back.

"My comms have been hacked and someone's watching us. We need to keep moving." He started walking again, this time a little faster than before but still at a pace that Sam could keep up with.

Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times
Leigh giggled again at his humour. It wasn't something she had come across much in her travels, this upfront and innocent manner. She liked it. But she didn't like it when he backed away, scared.
She lowered her leg and stepped forward, ready to dissuade any negative feelings he might have against automatons, when he spoke again. "Okay, Leigh, I think you should come with me. You're obviously not from around here, and with what has been going on... Well, it isn't exactly safe for you to go jumping around."
"What do you mean, 'with what's been going on?' Do you mean the jungle? Is that not normally there?" her circuits started firing rapidly, letting her free-wheeling self go, and falling into the copper shod body of an analytical machine.
"I will come with you if you explain things on the way, is that agreeable?"

PlastikBulb:
Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times

"Sure, I think I got some questions for you as well, so how about we go back and forth?" Motioning as he moved to the door for her to follow, he looked around, the sounds of a chopper growing.

Ryans Solution:
Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

Catching up with ease, the buzzing still followed but maintained at a constant rate. A metallic taste began to fill the air, and the kid seemed not to react.
Cars stopped for a moment, and the bridge seemed to be vibrating a bit. People got out confused, and wondering what was going on, cell phones were brought out, and people grew worried as nothing got through.
Lights began to flicker, and people began to take notice of Dune and Sam. at the side of the bridge.
A man, in jeans and a simple brown wind breaker, walked up to him. Eying his weapons and armor, "Hey, dude, is that a Halloween costume? Or are you like, some kinda government, police, or hell even a terrorist?"
His tone was worried, and his eyes kept glancing at the kid and looking around.
With brown hair slicked back with gel, and pale skin from business class indoor work.
His face looked at him with an expression of someone on the verge of panicking, and yet held some bravado with such a straight forward question.

maninahat:
Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Soon more soldiers and guns were trained on his body, most of them below as he stood on the truck.
With the look of waiting orders, a man in a black suit, and tie, climbed up a ladder on the side on to the back of the truck. Followed by two soldiers, he was average height, grey hair tinged with fading black, Caucasian and looking slightly worse for age, his eyes were a dull blue.
Whispering something in to what looked like a thin black bar with a screen, he held it towards Alexei.
A jumble of sounds and phrases came from it, some sounded like languages he had heard. It eventually landed on Russian. Putting out a phrase, "(Russian-Do you speak any language?)"

Ultraman950:
Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

"No, no, no, no. Not here, not now." Jacobi muttered to himself, looking through his goggles and zooming in on Michi, he jogged to catch up with her.
The buzzing was a familiar sound, and with his calculations, it'd only be moments before they'd show up...
---
Something landed out from the sea, landing with a dull thud on the beach. With perfect night vision it was a dull grey disc, about the size of a tire. Multiple seams and edges lined it, and a mysterious clanking was coming from it.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, rapidly approaching the ground below a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

Following suit, Ezekiel was obviously enjoying things, belaying downwards with the rope on his part, his rifle was slung on his back. Approaching the ground, the dull vibrating had increased. Picking up again, the sounds of branches and tearing was getting close.

Abut 2/3rds down from the tree Saoshyan was, with Ezekiel rapidly approaching. It was a safe enough distance to fall down given the height, "No fear!" as Ezekiel shouted, his voice filled with confidence as he fell with a muted thud, cutting his vine before it pulled at him.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Michi stared down at the thing that landed on the beach, trying to decide whether she should check it out or keep running. In the end, her curiosity won her over and she started walking toward it carefully, keeping her glowing eyes open for anything else out of the ordinary.

Saoshyan, under a big tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

Saoshyan dropped down next to the Irish British actor hunter, and laughed at the man's bravado. Some things translated without magic.

He looked around, checking for any of the lizard beasts. He was looking to avoid any surprise attacks.

Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Alexei stared at the man in the suit. Ignoring all the soldiers and their guns for a moment, he peered at the curious talking device. What technology was this? When he heard it garble out some Russian, he nodded.

(Russian: "Russian. Yes, I speak Russian.")

He said it slowly and carefully, watching the grey haired man for any kind of response. Remembering the soldiers, he added, (Russian: "I am a friend. Don't shoot.")

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

A metallic taste began filling the air and the noise kept following him.
That taste... I havent tasted that since... the bombings?

A man approached looking panicky, he started to question him like he was involved with whatever's going on
Terrorist? He's a bold bastard to call me a bandit.
"Special forces, and would you mind telling me what the hell's going on here?"

Ultraman950:
Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Approaching the disk yielded no new results from the sight of it, if anything changed, it was the noise was growing louder, and the buzzing seemed to increase in pitch.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, under a big tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

On the ground the scorch marks were still evident from Saoshyan's art, the sounds of trees bending and wood cracking came from down the jungle (street).
"We should leave, something tells me that we're in for something big, and I need to get a bigger gun."
Ezekiel spoke perhaps for the sake of speaking, as he motioned for Saoshyan to follow with haste in the opposite direction.

maninahat:
Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Smiling in a disarming way, the man listened to the device after Alexei replied. Motioning to a soldier and whispering in to his ear, he spoke in to the device, and held it out again.
"(Russian-We are American Government, cooperate, and all will be well. Tell me, what year is it?")"

Ryans Solution:
Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

The man wasn't mollified as he let out a yelp, and ran to his car. Closing the door he looked desperate as he turned his key over and over to no avail.
The phrase appropriate for his expression and actions would be, "Oh dear god! I don't wanna die!"
A familiar sight to say the least, what wasn't welcome was the fact that the bridge was beginning to shake noticeably.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

She slowly approaches it, drawing her sword again and gently nudging it with the tip...

Saoshyan, high-tailing it away from a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times
Saoshyan heard the rumbles, and was turning to run towards it even as Ezekiel frantically motioned to leave. Sao flashed him a quick grin, and made a "brushing away" motion towards him.
(Avestan-Go on then. I want to know what it is, though.)
He mentally prepared another fireball as he headed towards the source of the rumblings, the flames licking his right fist and arm.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

The man ran away desperately trying to start a dead car "I'm on your side!"
And then the shaking began Shaking Bridge... Collapse, Water

Dune looked around at the people milling about, he reattached his rifle to its magnetic holster, and screamed "Run!" at the people. Before in as rapid a motion as possible grabbing Sam and bolting towards the city, towards safety.

Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times
"All right," she said, following him through the door, "When did the jungle appear? And has there been anything else untoward happed since then? Or before then as well. Be as concise as possible, if you please."

Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Alexei stared at the man.
(Russian: "The year?...1961, of course... I will cooperate with your government, though I must ask that I may be put on the phone to my superiors in Baikonur, Russia immediately.")

The man's question confused him a great deal, as did the continued use of the odd little device. He'd be more than happy to discuss it later, without rifles being pointed at him.

ruedyn:
Wigbert, Fair Grounds in N. California at Night, Modern(?) Times

From previous examples the man managed to duck the blazing arrow, it simply shot through the stage back drop instead of a mans skull. Perhaps out of cowardice, or the fact that the man before them was now a one winged angel, caused the other knights to flee.

The crowds were clearing and sirens were coming in from the distance, Wigbert had decent space around him, and the only opponent at the moment was the knight with the sword. Rising as Wigbert had turned to face the fleeing mace wielder.

Ultraman950:
Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Nudging it with the tip of her sword, it began to unfurl starting from the point of contact. Sections of its metallic surface gently popped open, revealing silvery strands thin as hair. It looked organic and mechanical, as a few gently wrapped around the swords blade. The other sections were tasting the air, a few digging in to the sand.

SamtheDeathclaw:
Saoshyan, high-tailing it away from a large tree, New York City, night, modern(?) times

Running towards the source, with Ezekiel's voice shouting something, Saoshyan practically ran in to the hand. It was large leathery, and predominately black as it grabbed him none to gently around the waste.
Either it chose to ignore or simply didn't care for the fired arm, Saoshyan rose a few stories upwards to face a Gorilla of epic proportions. Scars covering its face and visible wounds like pock marks all around it, it stared at him with one eye, clouded and dull.
The loud noise of Ezekiel's rifle echoed behind him a few times, the eye flickering towards it only to ignore it.
No visible reaction beyond that occurred.

Ryans Solution:
Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

People fled towards the nearest end of the bridge, some would scream or shout if they weren't running pell-mell.
Holding on to Sam and his rifle, Dune experienced a sense of the world shifting to the left, while he was still standing still.
Images of the bridge under construction flashed in and out in front of him, workers working on the metal, people cheering as it was finished, and much more.
Then he fell, Dune had stepped on to and fell through an incomplete section of the bridge.
No hand holds nearby, and nothing within reach, it came as a rather pleasant surprise as his sudden fall halted.
Someone had grabbed on to his suit, and just under his shoulder blades.
"Hey! I'm going to pull you up, don't panic, and don't drop the kid."
It was a young woman's voice, and after a brief moment of disorientation were the world was upside down, and then right side up.
A single woman stood before him, dressed in a black full body suit, silver lines tracing down her body along the cuffs and neck line, along with two parting her in the center.
Wiry and a bit small, she was one or two inches shorter then Dune.

The space Dune had fallen was gone, and people were running forward still. "Talk later, Run Now," she said simply. Quickly turning and moving ahead at a good pace, calm as the ocean below them.

PlastikBulb:
Leigh, On top of a building, Night. Modern(?) Times

"The jungle popped up about a month back, it was real small then, but it kinda got out of control. People tried to cut it, but it just kept coming back, growing either way. As for untoward? I'm not familiar with that word, care to put it simpler or tell me what you mean?"
Brian's tone was calm, and his face looked focused in thought.
Waiting for Leigh to pass the door, he quickly shut and locked it. The stairs illuminated by small lights to provide enough to see, was a long flight with straight shot down in the center.

maninahat:
Alexei, Stuck In a Truck, Modern(?) Times

Sighing audibly as he listened to his device again, he spoke in to it for a length of time. Holding it back up,
"[b](Russian-this is a translator between us, and I'm afraid to inform you that you have no rights, and are considered property now of the U.S. The year is not 1961, it is 2012, you have been gone for 51 years, in either space or time. As we have no way to confirm who you truly are or what you are, you will be under armed guard in a quarantine truck.
Any sign of hostility, or attempts to escape or harm anyone, will result in your demise, or at least being shot many times. May God have Mercy if you have a Soul)"

Holding the device, the mans faced looked expecting any reply or argument to come from Alexei. Tinged with sadness and almost invisible fear.

Saoshyan, in a rather large gorilla's hand, New York, night, modern(?) times
Saoshyan swore, loudly, then calmed his temper. Rage would only serve to have him killed. Which he rather hoped to avoid, just now.
(Avestan- Unexpected...) He sighed.
He concentrated, and his flame flickered ever higher and hotter.
As the great ape showed no reaction to the flames, he quelled them with a thought, and began to try and wiggle free, his right arm in particular.

Dune, The Golden Gate Bridge at Night, Modern(?) Times

Is the occult division based here or something? Did they actually pull something off finally?

Dune began sprinting again, following the woman and trying to match her pace, nomatter how difficult that may be in full kit while carrying a kid.

Michi, Hawk Hill, California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Michi pulled her sword back from the thing's weird hair-feeler things and stepped back from it. She didn't expect anything to happen, but this world was already very strange, so she decided to try talking to it.

(Shamese: Um... can... can you understand me? What are you?) She felt incredibly silly. How would it even talk to her, and what were the odds she would understand if it did?

Wigbert, Fair Grounds in N. California at Night, Modern(?) Times

Wigbert didn't like the sound of the sirens, his gut told him it wasn't good. He could only imagine they were called on his behalf, but that was far too quick. He silently cursed, and decided to run, unloading two more arrows in the mans center. His power faded, and he looked like any other fair goer escaping the area.
