AIRSPACE ABOVE THE BRIGGS MOUNTAIN RANGE
KUVALDA'S CUSTOMIZED DEPLOYMENT AIRCRAFT
((Kean, Kuvalda NPCs))

The hull of the plan shook minimally through pockets of turbulence in the cover of clouds. The thunderous roar of the twin engines resonated through the dim interior of the plane as only a deep resounding hum-- The only thing to dilute the dense blanket of silence that hung over the shoulders of each of the soldiers aboard the air transport. In the darkness of the interior, everyone's face donned a mask of shadow. The only source of illumination was a red tinted light shining dimly from the ceiling. The interior of the plane was wrapped in somberness and anticipation of what was to come. Their mission was one of risk higher than any other, for they were to stand alone behind enemy lines. The success of the mission rested upon their shoulders, and they knew that. Not a word was uttered among the team of six. Each was steeling themselves for the daunting task ahead. There was little room for mistakes.

The strained silence aboard the aircraft was interrupted suddenly by the crackling of Marynia's voice over the speaker. "We'll be over the drop zone in less than seven minutes. Get your asses in gear and suit up"
Perhaps unable to wait in anxiety any longer, everyone began to equip their suits, equipment, and parachutes rather quickly. Ivanka gripped the sides of a strikingly large and heavy crate, which held all of the weapons and equipment the Kuvalda soldiers would need. With ease, the man slid the cache across the floor and towards the unopened door on the side of the plane. With a second trip, he brought his own personal supply crate that was to be dropped with the first. This one was even heavier than the first and more elongated in shape. It held both of Ivanka's weapons: Titana Gneva, the rocket launcher and Titana Kulak, the sledgehammer. Double checking his parachute backpack and the equipment around his belt and bandoliers, Ivanka glanced around the cramped space at his comrades. Each was shrouded in silence as the suited up and prepared. This would not do. As their leader, it fell upon him to encourage and command them.
"Comrades" Ivanka began, speaking loudly enough for each of them to hear, yet in solemn earnest-- much unlike the impassioned speech given to the army. "I know that the task ahead of us is unlike anything we have ever faced. There is no guarantee that any of us will come back alive." Ivanka lowered his gaze to the floor, eyes hardening, hands clenched into tight fists. "But mark my words, comrades" growled he, with determination. "I will sooner die a thousand deaths before I fail you or my country. The lives and prosperity of our people are at stake, and I do not plan to let them down. Get ready comrades. There will be time to rest when the mission is done."

"Get your asses ready in a minute for the HALO deployment." echoed Marynia over the speaker again. "Oh, and Ivanka. That death and martyrdom speech is nice and all, but come back alive, will ya? I have money pinned on your survival. Besides, if you die, who's going to give me my paycheck?"

Ivanka scoffed at this-- visibly disappointed by his long time friend and comrade's habit for gambling and want for money. But now was not the time to scold his pilot. That could wait until after.
"Ah, Marynia. Play that old song. The one from my record"
A few seconds after a very loud and exaggerated sigh of discontent from the cockpit, the speakers crackled to life with the melody of an old Drachman piano song.



This version was without lyrics, but Ivanka new the words well, for his father and father's friends sung it many a time at communist rallies and drinking gatherings. And so softly he sang to himself as he lowered his HALO jump breath mask onto his face.

"Наш Coветский Союз покоряет весь мир
Как огромный медведь на Востоке.
Овцы бродят безцельно, без всяких забот
А Советский медведь на охоте."


Gripping the handle of the wide plane door, Ivanka slid it open forcefully. They were all immediately greeted by a violent assault of freezing wind and the distant white and gray landscape below them. This was it. With a firm kick, both supply caches were sent hurdling to the ground far below.



"Alright, go go go!" Ivanka shouted over the deafening winds that filled his ears. One by one, each soldier leapt from the plane and flew rapidly below, vanishing through the clouds. After the least man had jumped, Ivanka followed......


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

THE AMESTRIAN SIDE OF FORT BRIGGS
15 MINUTES AFTER LANDING
((Kean, Kuvalda NPCs. ))

The Amestrian soldier kicked and struggled, suspended above the ground helplessly. Desperately, as he choked and gasped for air, his hands tore frantically at the metal fingers that clenched around his neck, but to no avail. Within a few seconds, his eyes had rolled backwards and his body went limp and heavy. Without so much as a second glance, Ivanka tossed the lifeless body to the side with a heavy thump against the metal floor of the Brigg's wall catwalk. Behind him was Yukov, Reznov, and Kean, waiting patiently for Kuvalda's next move. The mission had begun. Already the had been able to approach the less defended Amestrian side of Briggs discretely without detection-- save for a few guards whom had discovered the intruders all too late, such as the one Ivanka had just disposed of. Mirov was close by, set up on the cliff of one of the mountains that hugged Briggs's side.
Without a word, Ivanka held his hand up in signal for the others to standby. The others held still as their leader approached a door leading to the interior of Briggs by himself. After a moment of examining the steel hinged door, he thrusted his automail hands between the door and the wall, bending and breaking the metal so that he gained enough leverage, and then with a mighty pull, the door was torn out of its place with a loud screech. With a hand motion towards the new opening, Ivanka rushed in, the other three close behind him.

Each went their own way. Reznov and Lean headed off in the opposite direction of Yukov and Ivanka. Surprisingly, they encountered little resistance as they rushed through the icy steel corridors of the enemy base. Had Diablos already initiated the RIOTE distraction? As they made there way towards the main systems control room they quickly shot down the few enemy soldiers they stumbled upon. Their mission wasn't to seek out the enemy afterall, but to disable the defense systems of Briggs. They would never get their in time if they spent too long fighting every soldier Briggs had to offer.
As they made yet another of a dozen turns through the labyrinth, a surprising sight greeted them at the far end of the hall. A firefight had broken out among soldiers clad in the uniform of Briggs. Hiding behind corners and ducking behind furniture, the alleged comrades riddled one another with bullets and bodies littered the floor. Some of them must have been RIOTE's covert agents. Perfect. Then Briggs was in a state of chaos, just as Chaos had said they would be. Once again RIOTE had far exceeded Ivanka's hopes for their assistance of Drachma. There must have been scenes like this all over Briggs. The Briggs soldiers had now way of telling friend from foe, but the RIOTE soldiers did. Only problem was, Ivanka, Yukov and the others did not know the RIOTE agents apart from the Briggs soldiers. But this was not an issue. The real Briggs soldiers would recognize Ivanka and the others, in their foreign uniforms, as enemies. That made things simpler.
"Yukov. Don't fire at the enemy unless they fire at us first. Understand?" said Ivanka softly, as to not draw attention to them.
"Yes commander."
"Which way to the control room?"
"Through the next door on our left and down the 3E corridor, according to my map" muttered the bespectacled soldier, scanning over his PDA-like device which held his information.
"Alright, lets press on. We need to move quickly so the main army can attack"

Ivanka reached for the commlink at his side and spoke into it in a low and hushed voice.
"Mirov. Report."
"I read you comrade. I can see the enemy mobilizing on the roof. They seem to be preparing for our attack. I've also identified several enemy commanders in the Northern watchtower."
The enemy commanders?! Was this true? Then if they could take them out now....
"Do you have a clear shot on any of them, Mirov?" Ivanka breathed heavily into his radio, excited by the opportunity they might have.
"Ermmm. I have a clear line of sight with a few of them, but I cannot be certain that the glass of the windows is reinforced or not. Should I take the shot anyway?"
Ivanka sighed heavily. He did not want to put Mirov in unnecessary danger. But to pass up such an opportunity that could ensure Drachma success....... Ivanka paused in thought.
"Affirmative.....Take a single shot at your easiest target. If the bullet fails to penetrate, I want you to retreat up the mountain and hide yourself again."
"Roger that, Comrade. Over and out"

Even if the shot did not hit, they probably would not be able to pinpoint where it came from. Not with one. Not from so far away. Mirov would be okay.....

Kssshhhhht. The radio cracked to life again. This time the huskier voice of Reznov came through, his voice hushed to just a whisper.
"Commander Kolokovsky. I've been separated from Kean. But I've found a high priority target. Commander Ito, I think it was. The alchemist with the red hair. I'm going to engage. I'll bring you his head."
"Be careful Reznov. Do not give him the chance to use his alchemy. Shoot him and make it quick. Don't mess around. This isn't a glory mission. Over and out."

A chance to eliminate all of the enemy commanders in one fell stroke....or a disaster. How would this end? Ivanka shook his thoughts and pressed onward. They had their mission and he had his. He could not afford to fail. Kicking the door before him with the brute force of his mechanical leg, Ivanka and Yukov rushed into the 3E corridor. Several soldiers were already there. Friend or enemy? They seemed shocked to see Ivanka and Yokov there before them. Perhaps-
"Enemy sighted!"
Ah, enemy. The repetitious percussion of Yukov's rifle already echoed across the hallway as he got the jump on their Amestrian adversaries. The two of them backed up through the door they came in and took cover behind the doorway. Yukov continued to lay down suppressive fire while Ivanka reached for the nearly two metre long cylindrical weapon on his back. One shot was all he would need.
"Yukov, step back" barked Ivanka as he mounted the launcher on his shoulder. Yukov nodded and stepped away from the doorway. Swiftly, Ivanka leaned into the doorway, already looking down his sights. The enemy began to fire, but the few bullets they managed to shoot glanced harmlessly across the large launcher or off Ivanka's automail arms, or embedded themselves harmlessly in the bullet-proof vest beneath his tan trench coat. With a squeeze of the trigger, a rocket soared loudly down the hallway. There was not time to run and not cover to hide behind. The rocket collided with the floor beneath their feet and detonated into an explosion of fire and shards of metal shrapnel.
With little time to waste, Yukov and Ivanka hurried past the charred and dismembered bodies of the enemy and towards the large door at the end of the corridor. Behind that door was their target.
"I'll need time to hack the security panel and get us in" shouted Yukov
"No time."
Gritting his teeth, Ivanka reached for the behemothic on his back. Without losing speed, Ivanka brandished the 800 pound tool and with a tremendous swing, slammed it against the door with a thunderous crash

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

OUTSIDE OF BRIGGS
AMESTRIAN SIDE
ON THE LOWER MOUNTAINSIDE IN VIEW OF THE NORTHERN WATCHTOWER
((Jet Black, Reila Tsukino))

Mirov wiped the sweat off of his brow as he waited. The soldiers on the roof of Briggs scrambled here and there, but it was not they who the sniper watched. Through the scope of his rifle he carefully monitored the window of the watchtower that face him. Inside he had caught glimpses of a few figures he had instantly recognized. Reila Tsukino, Jethro Black, and a few others. They were well known enemy commanders. If he could just take one of them out......
A tall and imposing man with a head of blue hair stepped into his view. Now! Now or never! Mirov lined his sights up with the back of the neck of the man who's back was turned towards the sniper. With a deep breath, he squeezed the trigger.....

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

DEFENSE SYSTEM MAINFRAME CONTROL ROOM OF INNER BRIGGS
THIRD FLOOR, SECTION E
((NPCs, Zabulon, Kean))

The heavy steel door crashed as it feel from its wide frame. It had taken a few swings to knock the thick obstacle down, but a strength capable of lifting 3000 pounds swinging an 800 pound object did the trick. The personnel within the room stared at the pair of intruders in complete shock and disbelief. Not only had they witnessed the shocking event of Brigg's soldiers turning on one another through security cameras, but now Drachma was already on their doorstep. Ivanka and Yukov both raised their rifles and fired into the chests and backs of each and everyone one of the people. All of them crumpled to the floor or slumped forward at their station. These were office and computer workers, not standard infantry. They were never prepared to face the enemy themselves. It did not take long for them to be disposed of. Just as they had rehearsed, the two took them out in strategic order, hitting the ones nearest to any form of emergency or alert button first. This would buy them at least a little time.

"I'm going to hack the system down. Its going to take me a few minutes to shut down everything." said Yukov as he took his equipment out of his bag and hooked it up into one of the main computers. He began typing frantically and fiddling with his tools, doing all sorts of things that Ivanka could hardly guess at. But as long as he got the job done, Ivanka did not need to understand how he did it.
"I understand, comrade. I'll guard the entrance for any enemies. If we're lucky, they won't take notice of us because of RIOTEs agents"

Setting his hammer back on the holster on his back, Ivanka stepped outside of the large room of flashing screens and whirring machines and back into the corridor of burnt corpses, filled with the sound of distant fighting. He would have to make his radio calls now while he had the chance. Snatching his radio off of his belt, he held town the button and spoke into it:


"Commander Goncharovich. Do you copy? We have infiltrated the base. The main defense systems will be down shortly. Send the gunship and advance teams in and prepare the main army to mobilize."
He switched channels to Reznov's. Something was wrong. If he killed that enemy officer than he would have reported and gloated about it by now....
"Reznov......"
No Reply.
"Reznov, come in. Do you read me?"
Nothing.
Ivanka cursed under his breath.
"Kean, come in. Are you there? What happened to Reznov? Are you with him?"

Outskirts of Briggs; REZNOV(NPC), IVANKA, DAI

Post by Guest on Mon Jun 11, 2012 8:09 pm

Aaaaand there. The last of his share of bombs had been set. It had taken a bit, but they were there, in place, ready to blow at Ivanka's beck and call. The best part was, only Kean had the means to detonate them, or neutralize them, short of forcibly removing the explosive charges by hand. This was one of Drachma's finest technological achievements, as far as Kuvalda's weapnry went; next to Ivanka's cybernetics and Zinaida's Berserker, the Vraczun Ba-Bombas were the most powerful of Kuvalda's stuff, if only because they were virtually impossible to disarm without direct contact, which would involve locating each charge, about twenty of them, then taking the time to disarm each device by hand, which, in itself, was tricky; these bombs were not normal, in that their fuse essentially didn't exist; only Kean's alchemy could ignite them, and it did so without lighting a fuse or triggering a chemical reaction as the fuse, rather, it blitzed the explosives with photons to superheat the explosive material, which combusted it. So simple a child could do it, but unusual enough to puzzle all but the finest of Briggs' alchemical specialists.

And then, of course, Reznov had normal bombs. Because normal bombs were normally used normally. For normal reasons. Speaking of Reznov, Kean hadn't heard from him in a while...

Soon he recieved a message from one Ivanka, and decided to check it out. Reznov couldn't have gone far, could he? Kean spoke into the radio. "Rezzy? Hellooooo? Rezzy, where are you? Are you okay? Talk to me! Reznov! Are you there? SAY SOMETHING!!" Hmm... He was either giving Kean the silent treatment, or something was awfully wrong. So Kean headed to his last known position and from there, he saw quite the sight; Reznov was dead, and standing there was a red haired soldier of Briggs; Kean hid in the shadows, watching through curious violet orbs, putting Reznov's death out of mind for a moment. Who was this guy? Why did he look all important and stuff? Well... He SEEMED important, to Kean anyways.

Opening the com-link to Ivanka, he whispered into it, still watching the man, "Man down, Ivanka. Some red-head man cut Rezzy's throat. Bombs are all in place, though, so I'll retrieve Rezzy's detonater and keep an eye on the man until I can attack him properly. All I need is a clean shot in good sunlight..." So as the man left, Kean stalked after him, keeping constantly in shade. It was easy for him; like a predator stalking its prey. Taking a brief stop to take from Reznov's corpse the detonater and a knife, he continued his quest, following the man to a building, where the man came back out with a really big gun. Hmm... Well, he was keeping his distance best he could, of course, and he had a good shot... He took the initiative. Raising his hands up, his watches, full, fueled his alchemy, allowing him to bypass his usual two minute charging period. A blast of photons erupted from the intersection of his outstretched palms, the circles on his watches completed, as the energy surge basted right by the red-head, slightly singing his hair, but causing no damage, as Kean had missed his mark by a bit. Instead, the photons hit a large stone in front of the man, shattering a bit of the stone, and melting that which the photons directly struck.

"Why did you kill Reznov? He was just doing his job. We were going to get ice cream after all this stuff! Not fair!"

Somewhere within Fort Briggs --->Ayden

Post by Emmelin on Thu Jun 28, 2012 10:08 am

Blood trailed her path, though it was all her plan. A game with her teacher. It was all worth it. Would she die against him? It was possible. However, death was nothing to her. Everything that mattered was her amusement. A slash here and a streak of red was all she needed to make herself happy. A thrill made her day. Death was compared only to ultimate bliss when she made her wiles on the battle field. Her dance that left her bloodied. Ruined clothes, oh well. There was nothing further she could do to fix that, but her lust was far from finished. A moment she had stood silent as footsteps finally stopped in her head. A slow and precise movement of a man not afraid. What was this? A man not afraid of the Archangel? This was blasphemy!

Clapping hit her ears in a way short of insulting. A quick movement made her body whip to stare daggers at the man until. Ayden. Her heart skipped a beat. Such excitement, such irrefutable pleasure that flooded her veins. This man she adored was here. Though the terms were not favorable, Valeria was experiencing complete ecstasy to the fact the man was before her. Her idol, her obsession. Of course it was a bit creepy, but she never saw it as such. Simply, she wanted more of his being around, even if it was negative attention. Like a neglected child, she desired and longed for the slightest of touch of acknowledgement from the man before her. His eyes upon her, a sadistic smile. Pain ensued.

The clapping ceased and he reached for a gun. The weapon readied for her. "Miss Diablos. Good show, good show, indeed. But as any writer or composer worth his salt knows, every piece has its finale." Dramatic pauses made his monologue worth sitting through. Had it been any other man in the world Val wouldn't have waited to initiate any actions. However, being it was Ayden, her obsession, she was ready and willing. His shotgun raised and pointed towards her, Val braced herself. Her legs moved before she could think. She ducked, down low moving to the side, swiftly ducking to one side o the corridor and diving into the wall. Or rather, a hole in the wall. The small incision, close enough to allow her vanishing act, but not without injury. Shrapnel had ripped up her uniform in the second she wasn't moved away from the hole. A bit of blood, a burning that licked at her whole body, yet she was alive as it nearly knocked her off of her feet.

With her legs causing her to sprint as best she could braced her scythe and swiftly used it as a climbing tool. Latching the blade on a windowsill, she sat down as the explosion dulled to a small hum. Small tremors shook through the air. Her body quivered from his laughter. Enticing, arousing, waking more of her beast and yet, she acted as if she were un-afflicted. Casually sitting upon the window's empty remains. Though her face and body was in an obvious disarray, she couldn't help but continue to act cocky. Gripping one of her pistols (having tucked it in her uniform when she prepared herself) she aimed it lazily at the man. A bullet for his shoulder, or so she hoped. A soft grin on her face.

"A play is only over when each actor plays his part. My show has just began, dear Master." She spoke with a flirtatious hint she often used. The gun was emptying rather swiftly, two more bullets shot, towards his feet. Perhaps she sought to insult him, not aiming to kill. She simply played with him, as if he didn't scare her. Of course, he did. He terrified her and she loved it. The way her heart beat as he spoke coldly, the way he tried to mercilessly blow her away. Pain was raking her body already, spread little scratches all over her, while her arm leg was burning beneath the boot. She grinned a bit before anticipating his next move. Another explosion perhaps? She was ready for that. A silent giggle from her playful lips.

FORT BRIGGS; CORRIDOR: VALERIA

Post by Guest on Thu Jun 28, 2012 9:34 pm

"A play is only over when each actor plays his part. My show has just began, dear Master." She was bleeding. Her dodging his handiwork had come at a cost of her own blood shed; Ayden smirked, and she spun to aim her pistol, cocked, loaded, primed, and entirely ready to fire. But would she pull the trigger?

"Go on," He goaded, his voice chiming along tauntingly. "Shoot. Kill. End me, finish it all," A pause, and then the symphonious trills of Ayden's voice resounded back through the halls of Briggs once more. "ADD FURTHER TO THIS ORCHESTRA OF CARNAGE YOUR FILTHY DRACHMAN ALLIES HAVE SO BRUTISHLY CREATED~! BAHAHAHAH!"

And so she did. A single trigger pull and the corridor exploded with a crack. The bullet carved through air but an inch above his shoulder, leaving a trail of heat searing over his leather. Even so, the coat wasn't even grazed or marred; let alone his shoulder. Two cerulean eyes widened ever further as the grin stretched further into a maniacal curve splitting his face. "You missed," He whispered.

The next two shots were bound for his legs, but, alas, Valeria was nowhere near as proficient with her pistol as she was with that oh-so-beautifully carved and bloodied scythe of hers. Crack. Crack. Ayden shrunk down in a split-second's reaction, a plan clicking into motion, contorting his body; not away from the bullets' paths, but instead towards them.

They slammed into him, straight off, and thrusted the wind out of him like a punch. It had been too long since Ayden had felt pain like this. The makeshift stitching of the ugly, paled scar tissue at his thigh contorted and hummed with a gentle, burning agony as the assassin felt the bullets dig into what should have been his gut.

Standing up back to full frame, only the echoes of the rounds being launched still hung upon the air with their last, final whines. Haggard pants filled the air as Ayden's azure eyes locked to the ground and widened in mania. "...well done on your final examination," He spat after a moment's silence that felt like a century. No blood had yet been shed, though the rounds had clearly carved through his jacket, weaving two ragged holes in black leather.

The silver-haired murderer slung the weapon back around to his posterior, letting it hang there once more. Things were getting personal. He'd already judged and analysed the distance in perfect and complete detail, and now his right hand flicked to his waist at the left side. Leather-clad fingers brushed over black fibreglass of a blade's hilt as Ayden's other hand gingerly brushed the 'wounds'.

Two impact points, each concave and flattened inwards into a crater of its own. "A for effort..." His fingers, as lithe and elegant as they were destructive, slithered through the torn fabric and grasped the end of the mushroomed, bent round, and rose it up to eye level before tossing it at Valeria's feet. He snapped his head upwards and cocked it to the side. "But only a D for attainment," Somehow, he made some demented, insane tutting noise as his that crazed, bewildered stare, affixed on Valeria, flooded with further conviction. He dug for the other bullet, and pulled that out, too, before reaching to his shoulder and removing several well-hidden clips. Then, the same process on the opposite side, before he reached beneath the jacket, tugged a few times, and then produced his ace in the hole.

A bulletproof vest. It glimmered in Briggs' pale light as the sun's rays washed over it through the nearby window and cracks and crags in the ancient walls bearing minuscule signs of wear. It was forged of what appeared to be the purest metal; a chromed, silver sheen, and perfectly shapen, not a single edge jagged or badly forged. And the strength in tandem with that meant only one thing: a product of alchemy. Ayden tossed it to the side with a snarl, and let his frame rest easy again. Of course, the armour was helpful in proving a point; but it was uncomfortable, to say the least.

"You've betrayed me," He spoke simply, stepping forwards with every word, solid, impending, and ominous clap sounds resonating through the corridor's length, width, and breadth. "My integrity, my honour, and my code as an assassin," The second hand lowered to his other side to grasp the opposing tanto with a snarl. "I was wrong to take you on as a student." A crooked, wicked grin. He'd put her down before he, well, put her down. "You've already learnt too much from the meagre allowance of books and notes, and you already know of my crimson symphony," That was one way of putting it.

"You're not fit to be an apprentice or protégé of mine any more, Valeria Diablos," He hissed the name with fire upon his tongue as if it were the poisoned tail of a serpent. "Your days studying beneath my glorious tuition have sadly, come to an end," Shing. He drew both blades in a single movement, with a flourish, holding them out equidistant at his side as he advanced forwards. Clap. Clap. Clap. "You have learnt from nothing less than the best," Modesty wasn't one of Ayden's strong points. "And out of respect for what you once were, and had the potential to become, I shall give you one chance to leave before I truly show you..."

He paused for a moment, frozen in mid-step, as if he were pondering his sentence choice, when, in reality, it was already well complete in the assassin's mind. A vicious snarl and a terrible smile lit up his giddy face as it contorted, aflame with the pale macabre light of the assassin. "Before I truly show you..." He repeated, the smile only curving further along his face, carving it into two sickly halves. "...what it means... to fear."

Ayden clutched both blades and twirled them about his wrists with that uncanny smile, that skill carving through the air as if he knew how to joint and quarter it in a simple, single movement. As if his precision could shear the bonds between oxygen atoms themselves apart with a single slash. Light danced across the moonlight slivers of the Fangs of Deliverance. Blood had been shed upon them, and whilst every kill made had faded from the blades' visage as Ayden washed it; they had never faded from the pair's glory.

Two hands outstretched as if the tanto were extensions to his very arms. They drew exactly where he'd expected the points to lie; barely inches from the exposed flesh of Valeria's throat. "If you want to fight, then that's your choice," He explained with false, mock sorrow upon his tones. "I'd love to do battle, but, dear student, this is where we part," Another pause. "Your results can be spelt here, today, in blood..." Wicked, dangerous things flashed in those eyes. "...or ink."

"Put simply..." A sigh. "You're going to leave my study..." His eyes snapped upwards to match hers, deepest blues matching with those devilish purple-brown. She was an imp, a familiar, only capable of fathoming petty violence whilst he had master plans, schemes, and gambits in mind. She was an imp and he the Devil himself. She wasn't even close to his league. He was one step ahead, and she was three behind; half of him was just wondering if that chess match was a fluke. She was instinct: he was intelligence. "Whether you want to, or not."



In her, the one cardinal error of his ways was epitomised. "So, my 'student'..." She had let emotion seep into it. And whilst he too was guilty of taking pleasure in his work, he sensed that there was something raw burning deep inside her. He was a professional below all the over-the-top facades, true, grit, down-to-earth professional. "I guess that just about covers it..." All this in mind, Ayden found himself with the first true, deep-seated, well-rooted regret he'd felt in years burning deep in the cavities of his chest, situated just where his heart should have been. Her. And that's when he knew it, telling himself over and over again that it had all been a mistake.

He never should have taken an apprentice in the first place.

"Class..." Delicately, his eyes swept her form once more. She was just as beautiful, just as slender, and just as powerful as she had been the first time they'd met. She was probably running a gambit of her own; but compared to his, it was nothing but peanuts, negligible beneath A.X.N. Derocha's masterful, bloody symphonies of life, death, and the split-second of his decision, the flash of his blade, the tug of the trigger, that came between. "...dismissed."

Re: MISSION: World War III: Peace and the Pestilence of RIOTE {1}

Post by Guest on Sun Jul 01, 2012 12:18 am

Why? Why was he here? What stake did he have in this war between people he could care less about? Adryion was there for one reason, and one reason only. To protect the woman he loved and had pledged him self to. But how could he manage that when he didn't even know where she was? OR what she had been doing? He sat in what had been the staging area for the attack that had gone under way some time before, and even as he watched the landscape before him, he could see bright flashes of light and hear the sound of explosions, and knew there was nothing he could do right then to help her/ He had failed miserably and as he listened to what could only be described as a symphony of death, a slight frown came to his scarred face. Why was he still there? Waiting around for someone who may never come back? With a sigh the man that would have other think hes a monster stands and dust off his cloths. He had no place here...So he walked slowly, ever so slowly into the snowy back drop that was the land beyond Briggs and vanishs into the night.

Fort Briggs Wall

Post by Iris on Mon Jul 02, 2012 1:35 am

War: It was something that happened. Neither rain nor sleet nor Hell on earth could stop the wages of war once they opened up. A blank space of nothingness couldn't even hold the wild fares of war that longed to be unleashed on a country still asleep mostly. Heads a rest in their beds while others had meals to start the day. A world surrounded by snow and people bundled to keep warm. Various people scampered about, opening shops, starting their conversations. Officers in their own world. A day that started out so normal would end so terribly colored in crimson stains. Iris's shift never ended. She slept near by her post and woke straight to her job. As the sun stirred her awake, she stretched and got ready.

Making certain she was dressed for the part, she straightened her hat and set out in the world for her starting actions. Breakfast, paperwork and then she was out patrolling. A kind smile from each person who passed by. It seemed it was just the average start to the day. Laughs here, teasing there. Her each step left her with not much to say or do. Simply to watch the walls for any suspicious activity. The day passed as any.

Off she went for a moment, to get something to eat. A break in her room with a few others and she would pull out a small pen. Her vision a bit blurred, she sighed realizing it was about that time of the day anyways. Sinking it in as she always did, she dispensed her daily dose before tossing the empty container as was required. Her mouth almost watering as she sank her teeth in to eat. The radio buzzed in and out as a man came to report that the leader was speaking. Reila Tsukino. The woman whom she shared a last name with.

With a bit of a slow reaction, her fingers tuned it to ease the restless man. Swallowing the bite of burger she'd been savoring on as she said not a word and simply listened. "Good Morning! The weather is at a high -2 with scattered blizzards and a 40% chance of frostbite~" The weather? iris didn't care much about that. It was always freezing with a chance of frostbite. When that wasn't the case was when it was time to worry. Her pink eyes stared at the soldier oddly before the news continued on. "In other news, an avalanche is on the horizon. I say: it's about time, what about you guys? Standby where you are. Prepare yourselves discreetly."

Iris nearly choked on her soda as she took a sip. Her eyes widened and she nearly ran, leaving her food on the table. There wasn't time to finish and she'd regret it later, but more important things were needed. Her body barked out orders, "You heard her, prepare thineselves!" Her voice stated in a loud way that was unlike her unless work was involved. Mind full of concentration and feet leading her foot after foot to her locker. An avalanche? Surely that meant they were about to fight. How wonderful. A normal day could snap just as quickly as fingers.

Slamming open the door to a closet-like room, she grabbed her rifle and pulled it over her shoulder. A sling to keep it in place as she hurried her body to the wall of which she would stand on. Her gun pointed as she waited. A mass of people outside. She was no sniper, but her bullets were aimed to protect the icy fortress. "Keep them at bay until further orders arrive!" Iris stated as she fired off her first shot into the snow. She cursed her terrible shooting skills. "But be wary of any Amestrians." Of course she didn't want to harm her own people. Those in blue were to be spared and help support the cause. That was of course until a man screamed from behind Iris.

Her body spun and she would tense. A body of one of her men had fallen to the ground with blood painting the hard ground about her. At first she wasn't sure what had happened. A body raised above another with a sadistic smirk upon his face. His gun raised to Iris. Lucky enough another soldier fired, shooting the man down, running over to her swiftly. "Are you Alright?" He had asked her, before turning to see another similar situation. He shot another assailant.

"They've brainwashed our people." Iris spoke in a heated whisper as she turned to fire down the wall. Her shooting terrible as always. "God dammit. You'd think in a swarm I'd at least strike a toe." Her voice hissed as the other militant chuckled and shot another man.

"We can't fight like this. We're fighting our own people."

"I know. I know just-." Her gun went off again and missed miserably, making the man far below her jump. Her mind was in a rush of adrenaline. "Look. We need to get my radio, inside. Cover me and I'll cover you."

Her friend groaned. "I'm not so sure I like that idea. You're 'covering' may become friendly fire." His voice teasing. A smile on his face until iris took a glare to him. "Look. You can't hit the broadside of a barn."

"That doesn't mean you can state that." Her voice hissed as she stalked to the hallway. Slowly she led herself to her office, where she found her meal still sitting there, untouched and tantalizing. It seemed to be a worthy adversary but now was not the time to eat. A quick duck and dive and she grabbed the radio. How to word it quickly? "This is Defense Officer Iris Tsukino. I am calling to alert that we are being attacked from the inside. I repe-" Or so she started. A bullet was shot and her new friend crumpled this time. "Son of a bitch." Iris swore to herself, flipping the switch off and turning her own rifle. Without aiming, she fired.

A second passed before the opponent fell down too, atop of her officer's body. Terrible thing was war. Taking a deep breath, she sighed and drug him out. "Can you walk?" Her friend nodded and began his way as Iris pointed two other officers to walk him down. She hoped he would be fine. Her let hand held her radio, placing it in a pocket of her uniform.

On her way out of her office, she stepped on the assailant's hand and snorted. A soft mutter to herself. "Can't hit the broad-side of a barn HA!"

.....................................................................................................................................

"There's more to this than just black and white. The world can't be divided into that. There's reds and blues and greens and even more colors. How can you judge someone by one of two shades? It just doesn't seem fair to remain blind to rainbow, just because there's a puddle in your path."

INSIDE FORT BRIGGS, MEDICAL WARD: Any available Briggs Soldiers

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 02, 2012 2:40 am

Why was it when you thought things were going to be calm, that the tension would dissipate, it never did? Why did it always have to prove her right and mean that shit was about to hit the fan? Huh? Was it so much to ask for? Cora's head shot up at the first explosion, her hands gripping the cold metal of the framing of the hospital bed just as the baby began to squeal. No. This was not what she wanted. "Dammit I hate being right..." People about her ward startled awake as gunfire and screams began to echo amidst two more explosions that rocked the immovable fortress. How had this happened? Who was attacking them? Her assistants had started from their stations and burst into the ward casting their eyes about for her. This was no time for questions, it was a time for action. They had to get the wounded and disabled out of there. Now.

"I want you to radio around and find us an exit where we can get these people to. Get us a van to the North City hospital ASAP, we'll need them to be ready to move. We can't expect people are going to come to our aid just because we're healers." She immediately commanded, turning to the recovering soldier beside her to calm her down. She picked up the baby and slipped him within his blankets into his mother's arms as she whipped the curtain about so that they could get to her patient. She could hear the rustle of movement as they got wheelchairs for those that couldn't walk, another grabbing medical bags that had all they would need in case they had to treat someone on the run. She ran and got one for the recent mother, helping her in as another explosion echoed down the hall to their door. "Shit." She muttered under her breath as she cast her eyes about and grimaced. They weren't going to be able to safely move these people yet. Not without guards of some sort. Holding out a hand to the mother and child, she pulled out a pistol from her hip and ran to the door, carefully sliding it open to peak out at the potential mayhem outside.

A couple of shots rang out and she ducked back inside, growling under her breath. They needed... bigger guns. "We don't have time to get them out, I want you to take them to the exercise room. Form barricades at the doors, and you stay there. You protect these people." She commanded to her second who ran up to her as he saw her concern. He nodded once and began to shout orders to the others, knowing better than to question why she had specified that they were to stay there. Cora had phrased it that way for a reason. She wasn't about to let them take over her ward, and one of the few ways to ensure she could get anyone out would be to find some help, and kill some bastards. Running to her office, she ripped the door open and immediately dove for her trunk that held all of her better toys. *sigh* If only they were some fresh new equipment instead... OH well. A shotgun would have to do. Her labcoat came off, her other belt coming on instead which was her combat belt pretty much. Pouches filled with medical supplies, bullets, and maybe a couple of grenades lined her waist now as she rose up. It was a good thing she had decided to wear her combat suit today. Civilian clothes would not have helped her at all. Grabbing her bandolier of shotgun shells, she strapped it about her body and rose up, checking her few guns before she returned to her ward.

People were already moving towards the exercise room door at the other end of the ward. It was built nearby to ensure that people could have a proper gym area to do their recuperation exercises and whatnot. The glass was certainly bullet proof with some supplies inside just incase. Cora was glad she managed to have that insight ages ago. She took the time to aid them in at least getting a few more patients inside before a grenade shot one of the doors off of her piece of home. Her aides sprung into action and took over for her while she spun and cocked her pistols, rolling to the side before straightening up on her feet to return fire. Two men crouched about the doorway, firing automatic rifles at her in quick bursts. What bastards were these? They go right for the hospital ward? What shit was this? She fired off four rounds, two out of each pistol, as she ran forward to close the gap, those two men going down as another rounded the corner. Her small body dodged off to the side and curved to avoid fire, wanting to maintain their ultimate attention so that her patients would be safe.

Suddenly the man pulled back, but a grenade came flying in towards her. Clicking her tongue in frustration, the young doctor kicked it back in the direction of the door. What was most amusing to her was that the body of their dead comrade allowed for it to get caught in the perfect position. Imagine that. "Grenade!" Wait a minute. Bringing her arms up to block against the force of the explosive, she slowed and backed up from the area of most damage, wanting to be sure she could still be in a position to aid her people. She still had to grit her teeth while her mind moved a mile a minute. Drachma was attacking them now? What, had they decided that revenge was a good plan? The image of Aurelius and Hild leaving the broken body of the Kremlin flashed in front of her eyes as she righted herself and leaned her back against the wall before inching towards the charred doorway. They owned Drachma now, they had to be the ones responsible for this. Had to. It made her wonder if that little girl with wings was with them again. What was her name.... Nyx. Yes, the girl who had killed all of her team mates back in that other snow covered place.

She wasn't going to get another chance, she had to radio now. "Attention any available soldiers, the medical ward needs help stat. We have wounded and sick who need to get evac immediately. Please respond. This is Dr. Cora Nikita. I repeat, we need aid." She spoke into her radio, curling about the corner to check for enemy forces. They had backed up down the hall behind a makeshift barricade that they had formed. Lovely. One round whizzed perilously close to her head as she pulled back around, her breathing quick but controlled. With a quick calming breath, Cora leaned about the corner and fired a few rounds, not bothering to hang around to see if she had hit her targets. This wasn't going to end well at all. Oh please let someone have heard her....

Drachman encampment XX kilometers from Briggs -> Inside Fort Briggs: Ivanka, NPC's

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 02, 2012 6:21 pm

Reports began to come in detailing the progress of Kuvalda and their sleeper agents within the Amestrian fortress that they were camped a safe distance from. Zabulon wasted no time in preparing the forces to move, calling out orders as he stared calmly at the map on the table before him. He had already begun to move pieces as they needed to be, only able to wait for that singular order that would allow him to set all of his chess pieces into motion. There was only so much he could do without that order. Granted if too much time passed, he would move in for good or for ill, but still... He knew he had no need to fear the worst. They were Kuvalda and... others. If nothing else Ivanka would be sure to ensure their success.

This was something that Zabulon found mildly interesting about the recent shift in regime. Normally the Head of Defense would remain back in Drachma to help rebuild and work on the citizens safety at a time like this. He did not feel that they would normally be on the front lines leading the army. There used to be a man who would have been his counterpart, but he seemed to have vanished into the snows as far as that was concerned. No one had taken over his position. And so this meant Zabulon had double duty. In all honesty he did not mind, and he was certainly quite capable of the job, it was just different. He remembered how Svetlana, his mother, had worked with her counterpart with such ease years ago. As long as it was just him, he would just have to burden it all. It was true that little Sveta was getting worried about how much work he had lately, but there was nothing for it. He had to do it all so he would know that she would be safe, that their people would be safe. And if he had to lead this war in order to aid in that, then so be it.

"Commander Goncharovich. Do you copy?" There it was. "I copy." The room fell still at his voice, waiting for him to give the order they too were waiting for. We have infiltrated the base. The main defense systems will be down shortly. Send the gunship and advance teams in and prepare the main army to mobilize." And ever so slowly, a smile began to crack that normally impassive expression he wore at those words. It instantly sent a shiver down everyones spine for the man never ever smiled around them. "Copy that." He spoke into his radio before straightening up and drawing his scythe from its holster. He took a moment to take a breath before he began to issue his orders, "Gunships to the ready, I want them to go forth first. Artillery should offer them cover. Everyone, it is time to move out. For those that were told to go in first, they have their orders. The main army will follow after them."

Everyone immediately rose up and saluted him, collectively saying, "Yes sir!" No one needed to be told twice as he slowly stepped outside of his tent. "COMRADES! It is time to take the fight to the Amestrians." His deep voice boomed out across the area and every soldier's head raised, a flurry of action taking place as everyone readied themselves to move. He wasted no time moving towards one of the trucks on their way towards the imposing wall ahead of them. Soon enough he would be able to create havoc as they had in their home, soon enough he would get to have his payback.

~Time skip to getting inside Briggs~

Zabulon abandoned the truck once he was close enough to the wall, spinning his scythe as the blade swung into place. He removed his glove from his right hand, the tattoos almost seeming to glow a crimson even though it wasn't. Cracking his neck, soldiers from Briggs began to greet him and his small squad, his long legs suddenly propelling him forward as he prepared to swing. Soon enough he was cutting through their ranks as his men fired, pushing his way into the grand fortress. As he drew close to one man, he gripped his forehead with his right hand and activated his alchemy before throwing him backwards, continuing onwards with his conquest of blood. Let them try to stop him from tearing them down.

Inside Fort Briggs ---> Ayden

Post by Emmelin on Mon Jul 02, 2012 7:14 pm

How amusing. A man who believed he could overrule the Archangel. She had control of Hell and here he was cackling and enjoying this more than she. What a shame. This man she'd been obsessed with for years had come as she planned. Lead a wolf from the pack and it was a lot easier of a game. Her bullet missed her mark. His shoulder was unaffected by the sent attack. He shouted something in his mania. What it was, Val couldn't really care. His first attack was always flashiest, or so it seemed with everyone she met. Assassins were made to be one hit wonders. Though, she didn't doubt the man one bit. She knew there was more to him than most, however Val was well versed in ducking around potential attackers. She had trained herself to fend off Assassins. For once she thanked her paranoia.

Her hand rested in her palm, bored as he spoke his words. Her legs crossed, the feminine figure of the succubus simply watched Ayden as he pulled the other bullets out of what would have been a hit. It displeased her though. the man had moved INTO the hit, she'd aimed for his legs and he took it with his stomach.. well sort of. He didn't bleed like her. There had to be a reason for that. Originally she had believed him to be the Devil in human skin, but in their parting, she'd found a true devil. Someone to give support to, someone who gave her what she needed. A cause.

Ayden had given something as well, but the relationship seemed to be at a halt. He took little no interest in keeping up with her needs, her urges. Though she loved the thought of being tortured, it seemed this type of torture was not what she'd wanted nor expected. The emotional loops that drove her to reddened rage. Kill. Murder. Her impulse ate at her hungrily. That smile wide on his face. She felt as if she was in love for a moment. This psychopath was a source of entertainment, but only as long as she wanted.

"...well done on your final examination," Val snickered a bit. She was to speak, but it seemed he was having a moment. She let him have it. Let him roll in the ecstasy that was power, while she watched on with amused eyes. The way a predator stares at prey, her lip twitched into a soft smirk. It was like watching a child in Christmas. the way he gorged on the fact he had hold over her and yet...

Whom had really been pulling the strings she wondered. Her eyes saw in a new light that this man was just a man. Her own stalking frenzies allowed her to spy on his love life. A woman in his future, so boring.. so human. He had weaknesses as any other man, yet it was harder for her to strike at them. A sort of bond to him, though it was so obviously one sided. She was a masochist and it was no surprise to her that she would find herself in a world that had taken and emotional toll on her. Hadn't Aurelius mentioned something of the likes of her being placed in a world of tests. Was this the first one?

There was no way to keep both sides, she'd have to choose. Though the choice was already made and now she was simply clinging to the dredges for the last little bit of amusement. How depressing this man never fell for her charms in the ways of others. Indeed that frustrated her, but he seemed to fill his role well. But each act had a closing number and here it was. A bulletproof vest. That explained the lack of blood. Oh good, she was glad. Had she'd seen it, she would have been tempted. Spill more when death was not the objective. Simply prolonging, pushing them all back until the others reached central. He was playing his part well.

A psychopath was always the one to be strayed aside. Take out a strong link and the whole chain would shatter. Her eyes blinked as he continued to ramble such things. She found herself bored. Why did she not find such interest? Perhaps she'd had a new toy that was far more interesting than the ramblings of old news. It began to make her wonder when he'd lost his taste. She'd expected to bleed more, but instead he was standing there yelling at her. What was this all about.

"You've betrayed me." For once, Valeria flinched. Her normally unaffected face gave a twinge of surprise. That hurt! She hadn't betrayed him, yet. A little poison here and there. "My integrity, my honour, and my code as an assassin," He paused again as she remained hurt upon the words he spoke. Betrayal? There was no betrayal yet. "I was wrong to take you on as a student." There was the real pain. Like a knife in her heart. She wasn't used to the slicing in her heart. That sting of emotional pain that was far less exciting than the thrill of physical pain. Blood was so much more arousing than tears. She only felt alive when her body cried crimson droplets.

So there WAS betrayal, but it wasn't from the disciple of the devil. No, her Master had betrayed her. The pain sizzled in her body for what felt like forever as she watched the man's actions. His hands pulling weapons and stalking towards her. Perhaps she should be more upset about it, but oddly enough, she seemed to be over it. yet flames of hatred licked at her internally and compelled her to sate his lying mind. Had there been a plan to betray him? Why of course not, but her arm had been bent behind her back when she was spoken to. Her own life had significance as well, no matter how much the man had meant to her, but now, it seemed he was nothing. An insignificant speck on her life that was so easily wiped away from sight.

"You're not fit to be an apprentice or protégé of mine any more, Valeria Diablos," He seemed to repeat in another way. The first cut was the deepest, this one flew right past her. Valeria simply smiled once more, only this time, her grin was that of a viper. Not many animals enjoyed being hurt without hurting back. An eye for an eye or possibly something more was fitting for this. He wanted to use word to hurt her? Then so be it. She wasn't known for being a forgiving being. Once in her sight, she would have you, one way or another.

On and on he went. His words were useless blathers to her. The comprehension of his words no longer needed as in all matters she announced him as dead to her mentally. Ease the pain by sliding a thicker knife to them. What goes around comes around. the thought rolled in her mind while the violet orbs seeped a toxic glare. If looks could kill, he'd be dead. "You have learnt from nothing less than the best, and out of respect for what you once were, and had the potential to become, I shall give you one chance to leave before I truly show you..."

He paused in melodramatic ceremony. Yes, had this been a play it would have been one well written. Who the protagonist was, truly depended on point of view as he continued and even went so far as THREATENING her. "Before I truly show you......what it means... to fear." Cute. there was absolutely nothing Valeria knew of that she feared. Well, other than germs and the general idea of getting her clothes dirty. The latter was already passed and no longer to be affected as her clothes really weren't even clothes anyways. She still waited, unmoving, staring at him as if he were a fleeting distraction on the fence. the longer he would speak the more time she had towards the master plan. She honestly cared no ways on what went on at Briggs, her only objective was to make sure these generals were occupied. In her mind the more he monologued, the more time it bough t her new master and his other pets. However it seemed the debut was almost over and as he continued, his words were dying low. Finally, he was beginning to silence.

"If you want to fight, then that's your choice. I'd love to do battle, but, dear student, this is where we part. Your results can be spelt here, today, in blood......or ink."
Oh the wild look in his eyes. She adored it. the crazed mad dog that snarled and begged for blood with gnashing fangs behind its cage, yet he didn't initially take it. He simply barked at her, warned her if she came any closer she would be silenced for an eternity. Her eyes glinted with amusement as he drawled onto his final few words. A warning spoken a thousand times was a warning. Back off before I kill you. Leave with your tail between your legs. But her mark had yet to be left. Valeria wasn't one to back down without a fight, but her fighting was in other manners. Ways that made most opponents crumple to the ground and kiss the very ground she stepped upon. She was a woman; she was the Mistress of the damned souls that she soon stole away.

A blade was to her throat, tip nearly touching her fleshy skin. The temptation, the way it felt amazingly upon her body made her almost long for it. Her eyes dared him, invited him to cut her body. Delicious pain felt a way to accept his words. He finally finished speaking and for a moment she was silent. A blade Her hands flew up the instance it rose, but as a misleading gesture. As if to insult him, she merely played with her hair. Fingers trailing the dark tresses as her left hand rested to move on her mouth, not in the way of his blade. Forcibly mocking a yawn, she groaned and stretched both arms above her head. "Ah. You're finally done speaking I see?"

Yes it seemed she didn't take him seriously. Her eyes cooed soft words. "I thought I was going to fall asleep." That silver tongue did its usual work, speaking in a flirty tone as she simply let her body fall back. Blood fell scarcely as she ducked away from major injury, but a small cut was barely anything. "Mmm.. That feels nice..." She would moan before moving back to where she was. Her hands moving swiftly and her scythe placed in the instance the tanto fell down. It swung up, aiming to hook him from behind and yet, it stopped just barely out of reach of his body.

]"Your words never end, do they?" She asked as her body followed up by disappearing behind the wall. Her whole being tucked in a ball with scythe just out of the way. She fell back into the building. Lead him further. Come along little wolf. Chase the wolf dressed as a sheep. Her heart pounded while she pulled herself up to her feet and reloaded her gun. Breathe. She forgot to breathe when she fired. Yet she waited with her invitation. "Ven aquí, gatito, gatito.(Come here, kitty, kitty)! Ven a jugar conmigo (Come play with me)" Her walk was no longer that of a human it seemed, but more of a tiger about to pounce. She wanted more blades, more cutting and more pain. Oh the thrill of it all! She was simply a toy to the game but the small little rush was always worth it. A high no drugs could reach, though she'd never tried things like that. However she waited for him, blatantly showing she saw this as nothing more than a child's little game.

FORT BRIGGS -> WATCHTOWER; CORRIDOR: VALERIA

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:21 pm

"Your words never end, do they?" His face contorted into a sneer as he drew the tanto back and she slid her throat along it. A small, thin rivulet of blood drew and begin to seep, a simple cut, nothing more than that. Her masochism became apparent ever further, and, finally, she posed the question.

Ayden was almost sure it was rhetoric; but the laughter was a good sign. Perhaps she was taking it well! A giddy thought struck his mind, and he begun to make his retort. "My dear girl," He spoke with ancient, dusty fondness upon his voice. "My words are both perfection and absolution. You shouldn't be wishing for them to end."

"Ven aquí, gatito, gatito! Ven a jugar conmigo." Ayden rolled his eyes. More Esparian? Did no-one listen to him? She had leapt back, cocked the pistol, and darted off, simply enough; but the threat that it would have posed to any plebian was eliminated when the expression sitting on her pallor still remained hesitant. Despite the facade, the amateur mask of happiness to be 'free' of her 'binds' that she so eagerly put up, the silver-haired assassin's analytical prowess tended to come in handy in these scenarios: risk assessment.

Ayden knew his reflexes, too. He was fast; and there was barely a few feet between them as the chase continued for a moment down the halls of Briggs. Now, a single stride would close the distance, and he'd have time to bat the gun away before she could fire on target. All of this tied in with the fact that he was willing to take a gamble to make his point; and they were finished. The snarl thrummed at the bottom of his throat before making its presence duly known. "You want blood?" It erupted into life with a start, filling the halls with a vicious echo alongside the clap of their running footsteps in unison. "So be it."

The assassin lunged forwards, twirling the blades with his wrists as he struck. The silver danced in the moonlight, and whilst one tanto pushed away a firing gun, the other came down in a far more deadly arc; destined straight for one Valeria Diablos' wrist. Shing... splat.

Everything froze in time for that one moment as the blood quickly began to coat the Aerugese blade and his blue eyes met her red. Silence. The room was completely and utterly filled, flooded, with sheer, total, blanketing silence. The hand hit the floor before he could push her backwards, rolling, veins and arteries blossoming with all manner of fountainous and intermittent spurts of blood. Quickly the liquid pooled around them, and the tissue and skin around the edge appeared not to be jagged or tarnished in the slightest; for all intents and purposes, the cut was as clean as could be.

Ayden licked his lips as another cartridge casing hit the floor. He flicked the tanto up at his side and stared at her right back until she realised what had happened to her arm; blood spatters run up him in lines as if they were deadly paintbrush strokes carving a masterpiece across his very body. One streak, warm, liquid, and very much fresh from the Archangel's wrist drew a line up his neck, chin, cheek, and over his eye before flecks of crimson dissipated into that silvery fringe. His pale skin contrasted the tarnishing of her lifeblood, and he smiled, dazed, as if his mind were somewhere else.

The aura of sadistic triumph, however, was yet radiating from him. He held the twin blades in reverse for a moment, before pointing them inwards and sheathing them at his back. Things were finished, here. It was time to leave, and return to the watchtower with the others. The battle in the corridors had diminished, from the looks around him; the gunfire was quietened, and the commanders had their own problems to deal with.

The walls were cracked and riddled with bullets, and the rusted ramshackle metal flooring dripping with the blood intermingling of troops both Amestrian and Drachman - though one Esparian's stood out, trailing still from that hand; the chase was complete, and the brief game of cat-and-mouse finished. She had ran, but it had taken only one lunge for him to catch her before she was done, agile as she was, as per her renown. "Now... this..." He smiled to himself, cocking his head as the smirk arched quickly into a depraved, macabre grin. "This... I think I'll take."

Reaching down with the simplest of motions, he grasped the hand, and admired it. So elegant, so lithe, so ladylike; false rigor mortis had already taken it, and the hand was stiffening, its grip yet adamant. He pressed for a moment against the clenched grasp of her fingers, but they wouldn't budge, even in separation from what remained of her pitiful body. "As a keepsake," He announced, tucking the severed fist into a jacket pocket with a grin, turning to beam at her. "A reminder of happier times, eh, Valeria? Heheh..."

Ayden turned on his heel abruptly, interlocking his hands behind her, and callously ignoring her, his mind wiping her from existence. He begun a brisk walk towards the watchtower, whistling as he went, making no effort to move away from the hideous sight of her, any more. Valeria Diablos was as good as gone from his life, and she'd been left with a searing pain in the stump of her left arm as a reminder, a reminder of a statement so many had been left with at the man's mercy before. Don't fuck with the Blackskull Alchemist.

INSIDE FORT BRIGGS, MEDICAL WARD

Post by Murazar Dauthi on Wed Jul 04, 2012 2:29 am

Murazar heard explosions, gunfire and everything going straight to hell. He yelled over the noise to Reila before shutting the Tv off. "I'm evacing my personell off site with as much of our classified material as possible. The rest is being burned and shredded. Reila, we can either die here or fight our way out. They're attacking the outside, the roof, and inside with apparently our own soldiers and their commandos. I recommend combat personell to withdraw and retake Briggs. Colonel Dauthi, out."

His personell weren't combat driven, oh they had the experience and training. It just wasn't their job. He began barking out orders and assisting with setting everything on fire. The one perk of being a flame alchemist. He also began issuing orders to load up and prepare to leave. Suddenly he heard over the radio, "Attention any available soldiers, the medical ward needs help stat. We have wounded and sick who need to get evac immediately. Please respond. This is Dr. Cora Nikita. I repeat, we need aid."

Now that would be Cora wouldn't it? Well he did owe her and she was a pleasant person to talk with so he might as well pick her and her people up on the way out. He grabbed a nearby radio before telling his men to begin combat manuevers to the hospital section. He radioed back to Cora,"This is Colonel Dauthi, me and the entire Intelligence division are on our way. ETA, three minutes. Out." He clipped the radio on, pulled a pistol out and held his other hand at the ready as he exploded the rest of the rooms and followed his men out. He sealed the entrance behind them.

There goes all the classified material that wasn't transferred. Bollocks. He sighed as he followed his men out. Luckily the hospital ward was close by. His men hit resistance almost automatically and Murazar moved out to the front of them. Snapping his fingers and blowing a part any one who dared to shoot at him or his men. Luckily he didn't see any high ranking enemies or former friendlies out of the bunch.

He smirked grimly at an amusing thought, So does this mean I get actual military awards or just more honorary civilian awards? He laughed bleakly as he tore a part his opposition and his men held off anyone assaulting elsewhere around them. Within those three minutes he arrived and exploded the few men behind makeshift barracades assaulting coras position. He killed them before ducking behind his cover and yelling out and over his radio."Its Colonel Dauthi, seize fire. My men and me will help you and your people get out." He holstered his pistol before waiting for it to be clear and motioning for his men to move in and yelled at his rear guard to hold the position as his men began moving the wounded and disabled.

He walked down the hall to greet cora with a grim smile, " This is my first time being a hero. How dashing do I look?" He looked virtually the same, except for the soot that laid a small coat on his clothes and a bit on his cheeks and forehead. It made him seem like he was more of a firefighter than a soldier. He grinned like a rogue before reloading his pistol and keeping it at his side. He asked with a less charming and more serious smile."We're going to need to fight our way to the vehicles and drive out of here before it gets too nasty. I hope the mechanics and some of the scouts down there are holding the bay alright."

FORT BRIGGS- Watchtower > _: Mura, Ayden, Akito, Jet, Mirov (RIP), All of Briggs Brigade,

Post by Reila Tsukino on Fri Jul 06, 2012 8:25 pm

Reila." No, the snow was more appealing than listening to the inevitable. She turned slowly, dragging her eyes from the scene of the snowy tundra, still so peaceful she could hardly believe that they were finally coming. This is it. Red. It was going to be stained red again. The thought was not just a thought, but like seeing the future--a breath locked in an hourglass falling up. She breathed out and turned, her eyes locking with the large screen in her office blaring through the open steel door, thick with alarms. Their doors were open. Caught prepared, not off guard, but with...their doors open. People lived. That's all this was: living. There was no way to change the scenario--no way to make this coming any softer. Reila's eyes grew hard, her expression dense. "I believe from our currently greatest weakness and from their strengths, the Drachman forces will most likely assault via Air and Artillery whilst landing Air Assault soldiers from the helicopters to security our top layer defenses," Murazar Dauthi continued, Reila's focus not straying from the blue-colored pixels of the man's eyes. They were standing here talking. A war was starting, but she was still here, in her office, on her balcony (watchtower) talking. She opened her mouth to say something, but the Head of Intelligence continued unaware. "They know from prior attempts that this is our weakest and most vulnerable position while simultaneously being one of our greatest defenses. Most of our counter-artillery..." Mura stole the dialogue, continuing on in eons of tactics. Reila remained poised, unable to move forward. Her eyes hurt, color bleeding out around her pinpoint pupils like liquid gold; she had to look away. Weakness. Vulnerability. That wasn't in Briggs' dictionary. How did they get aircrafts over the mountain range? Her expression was slightly bewildered, but it faded the more his words sunk in. The roof. Flying over the Fort's great wall to the roof was a soft spot never before ventured by any attack before this. He's right... our greatest defense is also now our worst weakness. They were at a disadvantage at the get-go--already Briggs was facing a foe that exceeded expectations. But...who said they were ever going to let them land?

Mura continued, "our best shot is to rig our defenses to explode on switches and to fight back just long enough to get those switches installed and as many of our men out of there. If I'm right we’ll end up taking out more of their troops..."

"No," Reila hissed loudly enough for her voice to carry to the speakers. "I can't put our men at risk. We have to shoot them down before they land." Shoot them down... Reila twirled a few strands of hair around her finger, lost in thought deep enough to miss Ayden paving through those in her office straight at her. She looked up when he got close enough.

"Ma'am."

...

"It's been too long since there's been a good fight about, don't you agree, Reila?" Agree? Good fight? Fight? This was a war. People were going to die. How could 'good' be associated anywhere near what this was. She shook her head, looking lost for a moment. They had to shoot down the Drachman's helicopters as they came; it was the only way to prevent getting ripped out from the inside. Her eyes scoured the white early morning sky, just barely brightened enough to see. One story up and she'd be on the roof. How much longer did they have before the enemy swooped in?

Shoes on metal resounded suddenly, making Reila wing around with her fingertips brushing through the air, alchemy at the ready. Funny, how ice was still what she resorted to first and foremost; not a tachi, not wind, not anythi-- Wind--wind and helicopters. Idea. "Ma'am," The footsteps belonged to Akito, luckily not an enemy having already landed despite them watching the sky. Luckily, but what he was saying was not lucky at all: "I just recently noticed someone near the fort who looked like they were messing around with some garbage. I don't know why. I figured coming to tell you in person was more discreet than using the radi-- Wait, I need to do something now, before I have to do anything else."

"What is with you people and calling me M'am!?" Wait, garbage? That sounded like a high school prank. Who was this someone messing with the trash? Regardless, it sounded suspicious--something to look into. Akito bent down to transmute some materials around his coat on the frost-covered ground. Reila didn't wait for him to finish before speaking once more. "And why are you here telling me instead of investigating the matter? I assure you our radio line is secure. The only ones who have access to it are in Central or South City. Now stop meandering around and go!" She turned on her heel back to Ayden with a harsh look. "But thank you for being observant." This, of course, was not only a compliment in Akito's favor, but also a reprimand at Ayden's lack of sense by calling what was unfolding a fight...instead of what it really was: a war for survival--survival of the fittest.

Sleet. Sleet pattering on the windows, hammering like butterfly wings on the silence after a storm. Faint rumbling, the cries of the falling like the ripples of raindrops dispersing into nothing. It was gunfire--gunfire and her men in the hall being stripped of their lives. But how!? "There's my call~!" Ayden chimed like a child at a parade, scampering off into the fray. There was something missing--some tidbit of information misplaced in the frenzy of what was to come. No one had landed atop the fortress. No one. Yet, rounds were being exchanged, yells of pain were running rancid down her halls. People were dying. The monitor with Mura on it fuzzed out with disturbance as their radios buzzed to life with calls for reinforcements all over the entire base. Every corner. Somehow, every corner was infiltrated by the invisible enemy. How. How did they get in. In the flurry of terror that rushed through every vein in Reila's body, her phone rang silently against her thigh. The sensation that people were still alive enough to call her dragged her mind out of the frozen state of shock it had plummeted into.

"I just got out of a tussle with a damn Drachman infiltrator, about a hundred feet from my room. I'm going to head to the arms development room and make sure its completely locked up. I might bring some armaments along too. I'll meet you, wherever you are. Keep... keep safe. I'll keep in contact. I... I love you." Infiltrator. At first, Dai's voice was just another voice telling her there were others alive in the world, but soon transgressed into something more--something indescribable that boosted hope upon unhallowed ground. Infiltrator. Her hand squeezed the phone as the dial tone strummed into her consciousness.

"I love you too," she whispered while silence gathered once again. It was time to move. It they weren't coming by helicopter and if they had somehow already made it inside, their means did not matter. Reila had to get them out. Her soldiers were ready, but in no form of formation, expecting the attack to hit dead against the walls as it always did. There were no holes. How did they get in!? Masquerade. Paper faces on parade. Reila nearly crumpled her phone into pieces instead of replacing it back into its holster. The entry system was hacked, carbon copies of the security card made. Faces--faces not Drachman, but RIOTE filtering into the halls they lived in everyday. How long was this planned? How did they manage...to--to pull this off?!

"This is Defense Officer Iris Tsukino. I am calling to alert that we are being attacked from the inside. I repe--Son of a bitch." Reila's radio crackled to life with a familiar voice. It was the girl new to her position whom Reila had hand-selected, but never saw in person. Attacked from the inside...by those who appeared to be of their own kind. Wolves in sheep's clothing. Hah, well, Mr. Peach got the wolves right at least. But what of the tiger? Reila dug through her pockets and drew out her wind transmutation circle, clasping the chain around her neck, and holding the pendant tightly in her hand. She stared upward just when a faint chugging rifled through the clouds, dark shadows gathering on the horizon. Gunshots continued to resound from inside the base. Caught between the two worlds, trapped in the doorway impassed by astonishment, Reila closed her eyes and dropped to the ground as if bowing before a god. The metal twisted under her hands, the platform groaning with the effort to keep holding her weight. A tachi was drawn straight out, glowing perfection--like magic into her grip. She stood up, eyes flickering open like a flame twisting taught in wind. She swung it immediately, a funnel forming in air, getting faster and faster until the circle around her neck glowed. Jagged streams of pure energy burst from her body, making her knees feel just as weak as the shaky platform that held her. The helicopters descended into sight...straight into a new kind of wall.

Blades met the harsh gusts of a tornado, bending the metal and throwing the aircrafts up into the spiral like toys. Explosions rocked the base from above when many of the helicopters collided. Jet looked horrified, like watching a sci-fi movie from hell. Her tornado wasn't growing quickly in the still air, draining more and more energy from the Lieutenant General than it should. The air was too cold--too solid and heavy to manipulate into the full growth of an F4 like she had in Drachma. Helicopters landed down, setting foot on her terrain, beyond the walls for the first time. Beyond the walls. Beyond the walls. A string of curses dripped from Reila's lips. She could do nothing else. Being lower down than they, her ice was useless from this distance. She turned her dwindling tornado across the roof devoid of any Briggs Brigade, leveling the helicopters too late. Droves of Drachmans already poured out like ants from a hill, dispersing from her reach. Reila threw the radio to her lips. "They got past me. I'm watching them as they enter...Briggs...from the roof. We've been compromised." Her words were soft, sullen, full of an emotion that was uncommon in her voice. "They are inside and they are--" A flash caught her eye across the way--a mere shimmer of a glint. Without hesitation, Reila drove her tachi into her arm, eyes blazing with such deep fury the entire level where she and Jet stood vibrated with anger. Sniper. The shot echoed, blazing off the mountain, and resounding through the dry sky. The large bullet that would have killed Jet, stopped some distance away, dropping moments later into the white expanse. But at the same time in which it had frozen in midair, Jet (and all of his metal armor) was thrown backwards as if the bullet repelled him. Instead, it had been Reila that repelled them both. She panted, eyes intense with hatred. Before the man fired again, Reila raised her sword with both hands high over her head, slamming the blade down in a cutting motion. It almost looked as though she were practicing her swings save for the aberrant strength behind this one and the thwap of alchemy propelling the sharp air forward towards the shape of a man. No cry followed--nothing but a warranted death.

Shakily, Reila turned to get inside, blood dripping down her arm like a small crimson river of the dead. The radio hung loosely at her lips, stagnant from when the sniper cut her off. "I'm evacing my personell off site with as much of our classified material as possible. The rest is being burned and shredded. Reila, we can either die here or fight our way out. They're attacking the outside, the roof, and inside with apparently our own soldiers and their commandos. I recommend combat personell to withdraw and retake Briggs. Colonel Dauthi, out." The screen had come back momentarily, then went black.

"They are inside and they are impersonating us," Reila continued into the radio, connected to all of Briggs. Ayden appeared next to her outside, walking in beside her. She shut the door behind him, blinking away the blood splashed across him and the severed hand he was toting. Her stomach churned and her vision spiked, but her voice didn't waver in the slightest. "Look closely at everyone's uniforms. We need to regroup pronto." But where?

"Attention any available soldiers, the medical ward needs help stat. We have wounded and sick who need to get evac immediately. Please respond. This is Dr. Cora Nikita. I repeat, we need aid."

"This is Colonel Dauthi, me and the entire Intelligence division are on our way. ETA, three minutes. Out."

"Evacuation at this point is suicide. I want all personnel to meet on the basement level. Yarid use the back up controls to set the armory and the base into lock down mode. I want no one getting in or out. Anything that compromises us must be destroyed; use the incinerator. The clearance code for the basement elevator is 467Bghz97w. I repeat the clearance code is 467Bghz97w for the elevator. It should take the enemy some time to decode it. We will regroup and form a tactical attack from there. Trust no one. This is a direct order." Who knew how long Fort Briggs had been infiltrated for. To Reila, it seemed as though the helicopters arriving and the attack by the impostors were supposed to in sync. It was by chance they were able to notice that the impersonators had been here before the helicopters arrived...or was that intentional--a kick in the face, a means to plummet morale? "Activate plan C60387. Passcode つらら氷柱 leave out no quadrants. You have twenty minutes to make it to the basement." She reached her office, opened a drawer, flipped over a book and, took a 100 yen coin and twisted it into a slot, and the drawer opened up into a control panel. Reila flipped a few switches and pulled a lever, turning to Ayden with a vibrant expression. "At least we know our soldiers are the ones covered in their blood."

FORT BRIGGS - WATCHTOWER: Mura, Reila, Jet, Akito

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 06, 2012 9:01 pm

On his way back up to the watchtower, Ayden had passed his room, and dropped off a few things. Including Typhon. Now, he was only lugging around the Twins, his Fangs, the Children, Echidna, and Andromeda, the SMG slung over his back that hung by his side. As much good as the shotgun was, with frag rounds, it was too destructive to be considered ideal - the MP5K was a feline at close range, too, and Ayden had lusted to lay his fingers upon that engraved frame at least once more in a heated scenario like this.

Ascending up the stairs, he clutched Valeria's severed and paling appendage in one hand and his gun in the other, tossing the hand up in the air and catching it, giggling childishly as he squeezed it a touch too hard every time he caught it, a fresh spray of blood hissing out and spattering the walls. "Look closely at everyone's uniforms. We need to regroup pronto." Because close-up inspection of the uniforms was really going to help soldiers with the air whistling through an exit wound in their forehead.

"Hi, Reila!" Ayden grinned, putting on a false beam, raising his hand and Valeria's too, with it. "Do you, perhaps..." A giggle escaped his lips. "Need a hand!?" With that over and done with, he chuckled, and tucked the wounded appendage back into his jacket pocket. The veins were sealing up, the fingers thin and ghastly pale as the skin seemed to hang from the very bone. It had almost been wrung dry of all the lifeblood within.

Taking a quick scan of the situation from the tower's windows with his hawk's eyes, he couldn't pick out any immediate threats, but these Drachman Kuvalda were renowned, or, so he heard from some of his contacts, for their lethality and deadly adaptability. That's why, when they had struck, they had struck hard, fast, and relentlessly. And that's why Briggs were faltering, despite their iron-hard reputation for success. "Hm," Ayden's expression fell. "Guess I didn't kill enough of the bastards," He hissed, going from manic to demented once more; the monster lashed at his binds.

"Evacuation at this point is suicide. I want all personnel to meet on the basement level. Yarid use the back up controls to set the armory and the base into lock down mode. I want no one getting in or out. Anything that compromises us must be destroyed; use the incinerator. The clearance code for the basement elevator is 467Bghz97w. I repeat the clearance code is 467Bghz97w for the elevator. It should take the enemy some time to decode it. We will regroup and form a tactical attack from there. Trust no one. This is a direct order." Ayden absent-mindedly scratched at a streak of dry blood on his face, chipping it off with his nail. The damnable liquid, as beautifully artistic as it was, stained, and was rather itchy after a moment or so. He feigned a pout then began a brisk walk, following Reila into the watchtower, humming the simplest symphony that came to mind idly.

"At least we know our soldiers are the ones covered in their blood." She was perhaps the only General in all of Amestris whose command it was an honour to be beneath. He didn't bother with the salute. The assassin-General Derocha answered to no-one in that manner, and only smiled uncannily, the manic facade dropping to a limbo between the two absolute polarities, one he could only maintain momentarily before finally, it cracked, and he spouted into laughter or a spew of threats.

"That may be so, Miss Tsukino," Ayden muttered, mind affixed somewhere else, drawing back the bolt on Andromeda and making sure everything was in order, before finally flicking off the safety, and pulling the pin down to 'fully automatic', a stream of relentless bullets etched out in a simple, flowing, white-paint diagram. "But as you are undoubtedly aware, outnumbered as we may be," He rose the sub-machine gun up, pressing the hind of it into his shoulder, clutching the grip with one hand and the trigger with another. He aimed down the ironsights with a wicked smile, and that dancing expression of bloody murder flat upon his face. "Briggs is never outgunned."

He let the sub-machine gun fall flat, the degree of maintenance adequate enough for he; the weapon was working just about fine. Turning around and cackling madly, he allowed a steady stream of giggles to protrude forth with a smile. Pivoting on one foot, and extending his hand after a faux bow, he gestured with a sweep back towards the corridors. "Now, I do believe that we've got an exit to carve our way towards, and some filthy Drachman dogs who are just begging for a bullet in the head," He commented, almost as if it were regrettable that they had to leave, with a put-on upper-class tone hanging from and clinging to his voice. That trademark Derocha smile curved its way upwards, and his pearly-white teeth showed through, the office awash with deep yellow light, slivers of the artificial glow refracting off of his teeth, and illuminating that wild streak, that wicked, flickering flame, in those cerulean eyes. He twirled his hand a couple more times, before finally bending his back in mock subservience. "Shall we, dear friend?"

FORT BRIGGS > HALLWAYS: Listora > DRACHMA SIDE DOOR: Listora > BASEMENT: Briggs Brigade

Post by Dai on Sat Jul 07, 2012 12:20 am

The breeze quickly whipped its way past his head, narrowly missing it and almost giving him a completely new ear-style to go with his shortened hair. However, instead of flinching, he simply stopped walking; looking at the destruction that the suddenly apparent flash of light wrought upon the stone in front of him. As an Alchemist that was specifically suited to using electromagnetism, Daigoro Ito had studied into the very deepest depths of electromagnetic phenomena. The flash of light, the energy that it brought out, it was most certainly photonic. Chuckling quietly to himself, the male placed his hands into his pockets and slowly turned towards what he assumed would have been the one to fire the attack off at him. Imagine his surprise when he turned around and faced a child, not much older than 9 years old, standing in front of him. Violet locks hung at the side of his head, and the outstretched palms meant that he had just performed some sort of Alchemy. The shortened hair of Daigoro Ito moved slightly with his head as it lowered itself down a little, the male sighing quietly. He didn't fight children, but it looked like he wasn't getting out of this one so easily. "Why did you kill Reznov?" Well, this was going to be fun to explain.

"He was just doing his job. We were going to get ice cream after all this stuff! Not fair!" The man shook his head slightly, chuckling. "Don't misunderstand. I didn't want to kill him, but... he wanted to kill me. I was just surviving... that's what it is all about, up here in Briggs. 'Survival of the Fittest'." As Daigoro spoke that, he knelt down in front of the child, slipping his hand out of his pocket and quickly clicking his gloved fingers, making sure he had his own magnetic field outwardly pressing. As long as that was the case, then he would be able to protect himself from the kid's light flashes. As he reached eye level with the excessively-short child, his darkened expression suddenly changed--a kind smile shone at the boy. "C'mon. Even if you're some powerful soldier in Drachma's military, it's not fair on you to be fighting. Death, the stench of gunsmoke... it's not right for someone your age to be in the midst of all of this. If you want ice cream, then I can get you some... Just... can you not... fight? I don't know what possessed Vanity to even consider sending someone like you out onto the battlefield. It's not kind, and it's certainly not the way Drachma should be fighting us..." As he slowly got to his feet once more, he looked back down at Listora, with a genuine visage of kindness, even though his face was framed by hair that looked like it belonged to a beastman.

A shot rang out, the sound of a sniper firing from a distance. At that moment, the male turned his body and stopped. No, there was no need to worry. Instead, he would deal with this issue, and this issue alone. He didn't want a child fighting the battle that adults fought. There was never any need for such foolishness in this day and age.

"Evacuation at this point is suicide. I want all personnel to meet on the basement level." An announcement. Reila. Turning slightly more, the man bit his bottom lip a little. "The clearance code for the basement elevator is 467Bghz97w. I repeat the clearance code is 467Bghz97w for the elevator. It should take the enemy some time to decode it. We will regroup and form a tactical attack from there. Trust no one. This is a direct order." Tch. Closing his eyes slightly, the male placed his hands into his pockets and turned back to Kean. "Not long to decide, mate. We don't seem to have much ti--"""Activate plan C60387. Passcode つらら氷柱 leave out no quadrants. You have twenty minutes to make it to the basement." Fuck. Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck. Alright, Dai, get a hold of yourself. Letting out a long exhalation of air, the man looked quietly at Kean with a more dangerous expression. "I don't care that you're a Drachman, you're just a kid. I'm not letting you die in here." Without warning, Dai leaned down and grabbed Kean around the waist, hoisting him over his shoulder. A soft smile crossed over his lips. "Trust me."

Suddenly, he pushed off, running through the familiar hallways and towards a door--not the Amestrian side, but the Drachman side. He would take this child, let him go free and then head straight for the basement. He didn't care that he was Drachman. Never would. As he ran for the door, he found himself ticking away the minutes in his mind. Seven minutes passed before Dai had Kean at the door, letting him down with a smile on his lips. "Go. Go home, and wait until this fight is over. Then come back and ask for Daigoro. I'll take you out for some ice cream, okay?" He wasn't sure that it'd work, but as he tilted his head to the side he couldn't help but feel like he was doing something right. "If you go back inside, you will die, okay? So run. Get out of here. It'll be okay." He smiled brightly and went back into the building, closing the door behind him. The child would be okay. He didn't doubt his survival capabilities. As soon as he was away from the door, he ran straight for the basement, passing by Drachmans and ignoring them--passing by Briggs soldiers, ignoring them too. As he reached the elevator, he noticed a few men whispering among themselves--speaking in Drachman as they tried to hack the elevator. Sighing softly, Dai shook his head and slipped the SPAS-12 out. Again, he didn't like it. But there was no way he was going to let them try and hack into the elevator. Turning towards him, the men raised their hands and started to speak in heavily accented Amestrian.

"C-comrade! We're on your side!" He sighed. "Really? What does plan C60387 do, then? Every Briggs Soldier knows this." The men looked among themselves for a brief second, before shaking their heads and lunging. Too slowly, though. Three pulls of the trigger later, and the men were on the ground and bleeding out. That was a bother, alright. Stepping over them, he pressed a few buttons on the elevator control panel--making sure specifically to spell out the code they'd been given. Waiting for a few seconds, the doors opened and Dai stepped in to greet a few other, confused-looking Amestrians--one who pointed at his hair and basically asked what the hell had happened. "Tousle. No more.." And as the elevator descended into the depths, Dai had to wonder. Would the kid be alright?

FORT BRIGGS; Dai.

Post by Guest on Sat Jul 07, 2012 1:43 am

Aww, he'd missed. The guy turned, seemingly about to attack Kean, but then- he stopped. The red-head man said some stuff, like about Reznov trying to kill him, and Kean really didn't understand it. "But... Nuh-uh, you guys are the bad guys! Ivanka said so... And the bad guys always lose and the good guys always win... But Reznov didn't win...." For a brief moment, Kean glanced down at the ground, sad. He'd liked Reznov... The Red-Head-Man moved forward. He walked over as Kean started to crack off another photon blast, but then he kneeled down and looked at Kean, smiling. Kean halted his alchemy, perplexed. Why wasn't the guy shooting Kean? Kean didn't WANT to be shot, yeah, but... But the bad gusy were supposed to shoot at the good guys, like in Star Wars and Transformers! It didn't feel right. Why was he getting special treatment from this red-haired murderer?

The guy's words were nice, too. Kean really was a powerful soldier, or at least, that's what Ivanka told him, but that it wasn't fair he was fighting? Why wasn't it fair? The men who found him told him it was a good thing, that he was fighting for a good reason, that Amestris WAS the bad guy! It didn't make sense... If Amestris was the bad guy, why was this guy being so nice? What about Enrya too, why had she been so nice? And Maya and Tracey... They were all nice to Kean, even Tracey, and Tracey hadn't even trusted Kean! Why... It just... It made no sense... He was supposed to be helping Drachma... They told him so...

But... Ice cream? The red-head man had ice cream? Kean's face, somber since he thought of Reznov as having been caught with his last life by Inky and Blinky in a fatal flanking, fourteen pellets to go, now lit up, as if he'd struck come across a shiny Pidgey! "Ice cream? Really, ice cream, you mean it!? Do you have chocolate, or peanut butter, but not strawberry, I don't like strawberry, but I like sherbert and-" He was cut off by an alert from some lady. Kean listened, and the man said he wouldn't let Kean die there. Well, that was reassuring! He couldn't very well eat ice cream if he was dead, could he? Well, Kean got snatched up, and scooped away in the best piggyback ride EVER! This guy was way cool!~ Like Charizard plus Optimus Prime, but with Thor's superpowers! And Captain Creta's shield! And Gelemort Man from The Punchline is Machismo, he was cool like him too!!

He explained what Kean had to do... The guy was Daigoro, and he lived here and he had ice cream, and Kean had to come back after the fighting stopped? That sounded easy enough! He started off and then a thought struck him. "Oh! Mr. Daigoro, hold on!" Placing his hands together, they flashed blue, and he fired a rather large blast of photons in the air. Purpose? To over-ride his bombs. If he blew them up, they'd kill everyone at Briggs, including Daigoro, and if Daigoro was mad at him, and lived, he wouldn't get ice cream! And who knew, maybe Drachma had photon guns lying around. Point being, he scattered the photons, and they SHOULD have hit the bombs he'd placed and deactivated them, as he'd willed. He flashed a thumbs up to Dai, smiling. "No more bombs." Daigoro then entered the room and Kean began to leave

BOOM. BOOM. BOOM. Three gunshots from inside, and Kean froze. Darting back to the door, he peeked in. Good... Dai was safe, and the bad guys were the ones that got shot. Dai could safely get back to the rest of the good guys... Kean darted off, with a light clunk of the door, headed for Drachma, so he could get the ice cream later. In his rush, however, his radio fell, cutting his connection with Ivanka...

Fort Briggs Watchtower: Mura, Ayden, Reila, Jet

Post by Felix Lucas on Sat Jul 07, 2012 2:15 am

"What is with you people and calling me M'am!?"
Akito stepped back a bit at this explaination. The Ice Queen of Briggs had quite the set of lungs. As he was reprimanded and thanked in two linked sentences, he nodded his head and walked up the stairs to the nearest place where he could look out of a window in the watchtower. Cracking it open, he took his sniper rifle off of his back. With two swift motions he had disengaged the safety and loaded the first round from the magazine into the chamber. Raising the gun to his shoulder, he surveyed as much of the wall as he could see, focusing on the snowbound piles of garbage that had been there. He was an idiot for not just capping the person who was messing around at the base of the wall, but Akito wasn't heartless enough to shoot someone who was just messing with piles of litter thrown off catwalks. After all, how was he to know that Briggs was about to be attacked by Drachma. If stuff blew up, odds were that Akito would be in some hot water. His thoughts were interrupted when he saw something dangerously close to the watchtower they were occupying. A blinking red light. That was never good.
"Hey, did any of you guys throw out some weapon's grade C4? Because, if we don't have the detonators for this stuff, we should really move now."
Akito walked around to another window in the watchtower, and he checked some garbage piles on the opposite side of the wall. Not all of them had the telltale red light of a remote detonator, but Akito was still nervous. Still, how many times had people tried to blow up Briggs? And they never did succeed, either. What disturbed him the most was that the pile he had seen someone messing with personally, if he was right about where it was, didn't have a light. Did they find a way to detonate them with alchemy? Did they remove that blasted light that has no reason to exist on weapon's grade explosives? Or was that really just an OCD person? In any case, he had something else to think about now as he heard Reila's voice from below, saying that they had been infiltrated from the roof. Shithelldammitsmurfitall. He quickly walked down the steps of the watchtower to rejoin the group, keeping his rifle trained upward. He stopped a few steps above where Reila and the rest were, where he had a decent-enough view on the door. Said door opened and a single soldier ran in. Moron. Probably wanted to prove that he had balls enough to be the first in the door. He was definitely the first casualty since they had hit on the roof. Akito pulled the trigger on his rifle, which fired a gunshot whose sound reverberated off the watchtower walls, and the man dropped, sliding down a few steps before stopping really close to the edge. It was a miracle he didn't fall down. In any case, the mans comrades were clearly under no orders to walk through the door of death. Of course, it would only remain that way for the next four morons to step through, but some might slip through while he was reloading.
"Sorry about the noise. I still haven't got a suppressor for this thing. OhgodwhatdidIjustdo?"
It struck Akito that he had actually shot somebody, and with a clean enough shot for it to be lethal. He still kept his rifle trained on the open door, waiting for someone to step through. While he wasn't enjoying the thought of shooting anyone, he sure as hell wasn't going to get shot. He noticed Ayden reenter the room, making some lame pun with a severed hand. Akito gagged.
"Is this really the time for ancient puns?"
Akito was a bit disgusted that anyone could joke about cutting off someone's hand. That matter, however, had to be shelved. Reila gave an address over the radio, giving instructions to regroup in the basement.
"Plan what now? I haven't learned that one yet. In any case, I'll be right behind you. I may not be able to work alchemy with metal, but I can shoot."
Akito lowered his sights for a second, letting his rifle hang by its sling for a moment as he slammed a magazine into his pistol before holstering it again. When he looked up, the door was still swinging. He could only assume that they had deemed that door heavily guarded and gone for another watchtower, or were at least formulating a plan before they charged in. Akito smirked at the thought of Drachman soldiers freezing their butts off on the roof of Briggs while they obsessed over a single door guard.

Within Fort Briggs --> Corridors, Small Arsenal, Prison (Ayden)

Post by Emmelin on Sun Jul 08, 2012 12:34 am

It seemed games were cut to a close. Val could barely realize how far behind she was. A slight of hand and well, they were back to the old style punishment. You do something wrong.. you lost a hand. Shing! Blood flew, pouring from the arm. There was no reaction at first and what WAS a reaction was the way her eyes widened. Saucers on her face as pupils dialated and realization hit her. Blood, so much blood.. where was it coming from? Her heart hammered and the blood drained instinctively from her face. Where was all this blood coming from? So much.. blood? As she swayed a bit, she could feel the drops still falling and so.. she looked down and when she made eye contact with her.. hand.. two feet from her wrist.

A scream of utter blood curdling proportion hit the air, alerting so many people a good hundred miles away. Fear, surprise, anguish, hate and anger all mixed to create a scream of pure unadulterated hate. The usually apathetic or amused face held what looked like despair. A hand gripping what was left of her wrist as it bled to the ground. Her whole being shook as she was livid with so much emotion. "MY HAND!!!!" She bellowed out loud, mainly from shock. Purple hate stared daggers at Ayden. In reality she deserved it, all the wrongs in the world she had committed and this demon collected a payment for it.

As if to rub salt in her open and bleeding wound, he snatched up the left hand that had been hers. Her breathing heavy with simply venom. So much more than hate. I there was a word. It was all stared at Ayden as he walked away casually. Val was left bleeding in the midst of an abandoned building. Taking a deep breath, she tried to control the impulse. Stronger than before. she used her hand to press the radio in her collar. Her heavy breaths upon the mic as she spoke in enraged gasps. "Kill them all. Flush out the leader. Whatever it takes, no more holding back. Keep Reila breathing.. if just barely. I have other plans." Her voice hissed heavily as her vision blurred.

Letting her hand fall away from the collar she let out a slight wheeze. Too much blood.. she was going to bleed out at this rate. Shakily she whispered into the mic. "If someone would be kind enough to join me. I could use a little attention~ Preferably a medic. Make him good looking, when my vision comes back I don't want to be staring at an ugly-ass bastard." Her voice laughed softly as she found a spot to sit down and take a shaky breath. For a second.. just a second, she needed a breather. Her shirt, taking a piece and somehow ripping, she managed a rather crappy way to keep the blood flow minimal. at least until help finally arrived.

A man Val knew vaguely from her old days. The butler whom she knew from when she lived with her parents. "Oh my, who knew YOU were still around, Boris." She stated with a soft coo. "I thought I asked for an attractive man." She would sigh and wave her hand.

"I'm attractive for a man my age." He stated, walking over. His hands moving swiftly as he sat down beside her. A box revealed from beneath his shirt. "This might hurt quite a bit." He stated with a soft laugh. His hands placed upon her hand, activating what she assumed was some sort of alchemy. Incredible pain shot through her body. The cells growing to help close the cut. After a good deal had been healed up, he clicked open the box and yanked open the box. A set of needles and threads within. Following, her wrist was stitched closed.

Val grit her teeth, grinding them audibly. "I never knew you were one of the alchemists." She hissed softly. Her eyes amused. "I should take your head back to Esparia." Her voice cooed. A grimace appeared on her face as he pulled hard, yanking the wound closed more, but also to throw her off of her rocker.

"Is this how you treat all the people who help you?" He chortled, eyes focused on closing the wound. "Too bad, it appears you don't have the hand. I could have reattached it."

"And look like Frankenstein's bride? No thank you! I'd be without a body part before I wore an imperfect one!" She snapped quickly, watching him bite apart the threads and tighten them. Val groaned a throaty sound similar to a moan. Pleasure from pain and yet this was different. "Good seeing you, again." Her voice managed before she stood to her feet and looked at her arm. She could flex it, but there went the pretty digits. How depressing. Rage filled her veins. She wasn't playing around any longer. It became personal. Her violet eyes rested on her friend who nodded to her. A quick snip and he tore off the bandage on her arm. A soft grumble of how poorly it was wrapped.

Her feet held her firm as she motioned a dismissing motion with her hand. Stepping over, she grabbed the gun that had been knocked onto the floor and shifted it into her belt. Her scythe... she handed it to her friend. The pocket knife would have to do now. A scythe could not be wielded with a single hand, not as a weapon. A secret pain slapped her in the face and she took another angry breath. Time to be real.

Val simply stormed out of the building, gripping her knife tight while stepping in the light. Chaos, was not enough. Revenge.. was what she needed. more misery, make them scream. Her hand clutching the blade, she ran towards a direction that she was unsure of. Sidling up to an unexpecting man, she would put her acting skills to practice. Once again she was on the game, despite the wild look of her uniform. This was war, everyone was caught in, so the man didn't ask. "Sir? I transferred here last week, I can't.. for the life of me remember where the nearest bathroom is?"

His eyes were suspicious upon her a moment. "Have you not listened to your radio?" His voice was stern but a bit shaken. He was frightened of what was happening. Fear. He was AFRAID of her. How rich.

"No, Sadly mine was destroyed by a fellow officer who was attacking me." Her face showed concern, furrowed brow, mimicked panic. She wanted him to believe she was innocently defending his home just as he was. His eyes watched her actions; obviously trying to read her body language. The lies. He bought them.

"We're falling back! You need to head to-"

"Falling back?!" Val spoke in half-fake fear. What if all the little mice went into hiding? She definitely wanted to flush them out. No longer was she meant to play with her food, but she HAD to make sure she completed her objective. She REFUSED to return to the mission with a hand missing and nothing to give. So her eyes shot to the side and then back to him. Damn. Her deep thoughts had her miss where they were located, but she was interested in more things. Squeeze out the last screams, more blood. She sighed and nodded to him, while he too left off in a direction.

Well, it was time to take action. A body on the floor, she pried a few choice weapons, including another gun and a lucky placed grenade. Oh well, that gave her a good idea on TOP of an idea. She peered around and wandered a bit, in a tad hurry but nothing TOO suspicious. people ran amok fleeing and hiding. To her luck she came upon an arsenal in the distance. A grin on her face. Fewer people around, but some had lacked hearing messages. Perfect pray. Val stalked up to the building. Her violet eyes upon the man with a kind smile. "Hello sir~" She cooed as he looked at her oddly, before she stabbed him in the neck. A stray bullet flying past her shoulder. Thrill!

His partner turned and shout in surprise, but Val was quick in dropping low and throwing her knife straight into the man's jugular. Not far of a throw, but enough to make him disoriented. Val shuffled through the dead body at her feet's pockets. Surfing for a certain object: a card? Sliding it at the panel, she unlocked it and grabbed the grenade tightly. Her friend with the knife in the throat continued shooting at her. Good thing blood loss was making him wobbly.

Pulling out the pin, she threw with all her might, the grenade and then she ran like Hell. BOOM! The bomb set of and fireworks displayed as the whole arsenal was blown through the roof. Shrapnel flying and pieces of the building flying out. Three seconds bought her just far enough to feel the after wave that threw her forward some more and knocked her off her feet. Her friend swore loudly about some bitch and kept shooting, a bullet lodged into her leg. Val bit back a shout of pain. Some miracle she was able to keep going. Pain seered behind her eyelids. Flames of hatred. Her eyes opened and she pulled her gun out, firing three rounds at the man. Reloading the clip, she headed back into the battle.

Lucky for her, lady fate placed the bullet somewhere that was not deadly and only sat in a way that made her a bit less agile. Hurt like hell though. Finding herself wandering towards where the people all fled, she found her original plan was still in place. A large building locked off. Though she had a bit of a limp, they were all hiding anyways. A body there in front of her. How lucky that so many bodies littered the grounds of Briggs. This was such a fun game. She was enjoying herself greatly.

Robbing the body, not like she cared, she found a new card to slide through the door and found herself stepping into the door. Normally people avoid Prisons, however when your name was Valeria, you walked in to recruit. Her eyes flashed down the cells as angry maws were speaking words to her. She simply smirked and went down the line, pressing buttons to unlock each cell. One by one they were released from their cages. "HEAR ME NOW!" She called out, demanding attention from each and every fool there. "These people locked you up for yourselves. Well, now is the time to unleash Hell, neh?"

"Fuck if I'll listen to you, little lady, but I won't back down from fuckin up the asshats that threw me in here. Imagine me ME some sort of crooked bomb technician." A gruff man at seven feet with tan skin spoke. his brown eyes speaking sour notes beneath his prison clothing. A hand ran through his balding hand while he pushed his way past Valeria and made his way with a group of others. Val grinned, watching them go out to unleash their manners of chaos onto the Fort. Val smiled softly and stepped to the last one, a tmid man who looked as if he were talking to himself.

"You, what are you in here for?" She spoke calmly, leaning in a bit.

"Th-they say I'm a pyromaniac. Th-That I killed a lot of people. I-I just like fire." Oh-ho~ Val grinned a bit and unlocked his bars as all the others.

"I have a special job for you." Her hand beckoned the scaredy man towards her, pulling him closer before she whispered in his ear. "I need you, to keep the defenses busy~ Capiche? You can use all the fire you want, pretty boy." Her hand ran through his hair as she too exited the prison after the man who ran off. Life was good. Within ten minutes, she could see smoke on the wall and from one of the arsenals. Buildings were being smashed; windows cracked. Her eyes lit up. Chaos... it was amazing.

MEDICAL WARD: Mura and Reila

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 09, 2012 4:19 pm

Blood congealed on a fresh wound on her arm from carelessness with her speed, her alkahestry at least preventing her from being at risk of bleeding out. She would properly tend to it when she could. Ducking out around the corner again, she fired off her last pistol round which left her with her shotgun and fists. Neither was very helpful considering how far down the hallway they were barricaded. If she leaped out she would become swiss cheese for sure. Shit!

"This is Colonel Dauthi, me and the entire Intelligence division are on our way. ETA, three minutes. Out."

Oh thank god... Mura. "Thank you Mura-" But they were interrupted. "Evacuation at this point is suicide. I want all personnel to meet on the basement level. Yarid use the back up controls to set the armory and the base into lock down mode. I want no one getting in or out. Anything that compromises us must be destroyed; use the incinerator. The clearance code for the basement elevator is 467Bghz97w. I repeat the clearance code is 467Bghz97w for the elevator. It should take the enemy some time to decode it. We will regroup and form a tactical attack from there. Trust no one. This is a direct order." She froze for a moment and gritted her teeth. The basement?! Some of these people needed to get to North City hospital NOW. She could barely set up a temporary holding down in the basement and keep them all. Closing her eyes, she leaned against the wall and took a deep breath as bullets ricocheted down the hallway, burying themselves into the wall or the floor. "Copy that Lieutenant General." Her voice was strained but it was not from pain. It was from the knowledge that not all of her charges were going to survive. It was true that evacuation was probably suicide, she could not fault Reila for that. She just... hated not being able to help everyone.

Counting down in her head, she took a deep breath in and exhaled slowly, doing her best to ignore any and all distracting thoughts. Guilt and anger at the situation would only bog her down. She had to simply focus on saving all those that she could. Whipping around the corner, she fired off her shotgun twice, hearing howls of pain from idiots who thought they could sneak their way up to the door. "Thats what you get you fucking bastards. THIS IS MY MEDICAL WARD!" She roared at them in their native tongue, panting as she listened to the rattatat of gunfire. She leaned out and fired off one more shot before a bullet buried itself in her shoulder, forcing her to duck back around her corner with a growl of pain. Ow... Fucking RIOTE.... Clamping her hand down on the wound, she at least stopped the bleeding for now though it meant the bullet was still trapped inside. Fuck this SUCKED! But there was change happening out in the hallway, the sound of explosions greeting her ears just before a voice that she was very happy to hear. "Its Colonel Dauthi, seize fire. My men and me will help you and your people get out."

Cora adjusted her grip on her shotgun before pushing herself up off of the ground, running over to the center of the room so as to signal her people that they should start helping getting those people out. They began to leap into action as she turned around to greet the man she had treated not too long ago. " This is my first time being a hero. How dashing do I look?" Smirking, she chuckled which ended in a hiss of pain at her shoulder as she stood up a bit taller not that it really helped her any. She was still tiny amongst most people. "As dashing as a king in shining armor. Thank you again Mura." Her expression softened a little as he grinned at her, taking the time to take a deep breath. They were far from done here. "We're going to need to fight our way to the vehicles and drive out of here before it gets too nasty. I hope the mechanics and some of the scouts down there are holding the bay alright."

She nodded once in understanding, beginning to walk towards her office to grab more clips for her pistols as she answered him, "I would hope so too, but from the sounds of it Briggs has been swamped by these shmucks. I just hope the basement level is mostly clear. I don't want to have to lose anymore than is absolutely necessary." Which should be none in a perfect scenario. As she grabbed the clips from her desk drawer, she looked at the filing cabinets full of all the personal at Briggs and grimaced, knowing that she couldn't leave them there like that. Man... that was months of work she'd have to redo. Oh well. Placing her shotgun down outside of the room, she grabbed some flammable chemicals from the backroom and dumped it all over her office before stepping out to the doorway for one last look. That had been her little hole in the wall for these past months, it was time to say goodbye. Sliding a pack of matches out of her pocket, she lit it and flicked into the room, quickly picking up her shotgun and walking away as flames erupted in what had been her office.

"Come on. We gotta get down to the basement levels. I really hope there is a secured area ready for these people." She muttered as she forced herself to check her shotgun despite the throbbing pain in her shoulder. Alright, she was good to go.

MEDICAL WARD: Cora and Reila

Post by Murazar Dauthi on Mon Jul 09, 2012 6:17 pm

Murazar smirked a little bit as Cora's sweet words floated over before being interrupted. He sighed as he continued to cut a swath through their enemies. He frowned as he heard over the radio, "Evacuation at this point is suicide. I want all personnel to meet on the basement level. Yarid use the back up controls to set the armory and the base into lock down mode. I want no one getting in or out. Anything that compromises us must be destroyed; use the incinerator. The clearance code for the basement elevator is 467Bghz97w. I repeat the clearance code is 467Bghz97w for the elevator. It should take the enemy some time to decode it. We will regroup and form a tactical attack from there. Trust no one. This is a direct order."

Murazar grimaced as he cut down and through everyone in his way. That plan was suicide. It was a twenty minute run and gun to the lowest level. He always hated that kind of plan. After all, what good was a probably secret tunnel or what not and the fact that it locks down after a set amount of time that someone sprinting from one end at the higher most area to the exit twenty-five minutes. Thats without adding in explosions, rocking, debris, fire, enemies shooting at you among many other things.

Regardless, he had twenty minutes to get cora, her and his people out through that way. "As dashing as a king in shining armor. Thank you again Mura." Was her response to his joke. He smiled politely and tipped and imaginary hat. " Thank you, sweet lady. Now I believe you might need some support getting out. It wont do for me to let you have no cover or get left behind in this mad rush." While he awaited her destroying the medical records, of which he smirked and approved of his own being wiped clean again. He spoke over the radio to Reila, "This is Colonel Dauthi, General Tsukino. If you can, or anyone else can. The intelligence division, Medical staff and wounded are moving through the mechanical garage to the basement. If anyone can help escort us there, it would be greatly appreciated and facilitate faster movement. Its hard enough as it is to be down to a few squads defending a company or two worth of people including myself. ETA at best, ten to thirteen minutes, ETA at worst. Thirty Minutes. Over."

He nodded as she spoke again, "I would hope so too, but from the sounds of it Briggs has been swamped by these shmucks. I just hope the basement level is mostly clear. I don't want to have to lose anymore than is absolutely necessary." He replied with a chuckle as she prepped her shotgun he gently grabbed it." Let me shoot it, just hold onto my shoulders so you dont hurt yourself more than you need to. We'll need you when this is over and i'm not letting you go off and do some stupid heroic." He motioned for her to put an arm around his shoulder and hop up on his back for him to hold her. Regardless, he was going to take that shotgun so she wouldn't hurt herself. The pistol was fine in case something happened. He crouched a bit for her to hop on all the while looking completely serious.

"Come on. We gotta get down to the basement levels. I really hope there is a secured area ready for these people." He nodded simply at that statement. He hoped so too, or they would have a large bodycount on their hands.

On the wall ---> NPC

Post by Iris on Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:21 pm

The fighting didn't stop. Once one had betrayed, they all followed. Her radio spat noise she could barely hear over the screams of charging militants and the shouts of fallen warriors. This- This wasn't good. Her rushing back to her post was more of ducking and dodging the stray bullets. Nowhere was safe. Her head was pounding from the pumping adrenaline and she was almost ready to collapse from a sudden heat that swept over her. Something wasn't right, but that could wait, for now, she was shooting towards people (though missing) and ushering them out of her way.

Once at her post, she could see the chaos that had left many people simply either dead or lost. A man shot looks at her that made Iris's blood run cold. However, her face remained blank, not showing the panic that fled on her face. "What's the matter?"

His face was forlorn; downcast as she looked away with a nervousness. Shifting while he put his gun down. "Ma'am.. we have to get to the basement."

Iris's brow furrowed some. Her eyes showing a bit of anger and some annoyance. They were retreating. Why were they retreating?! After shaking her head, she found herself nodding and sighing in annoyance. "Alright, then what are you still doing here? Get a move on!" Her hands moved to motion, pointing her gun away from herself. The man just stood there, sweating. His finger pulled gently at his collar and he fumbled over words. Feeling a bit, impatient, Iris stomped her foot towards him. "What's the matter man? Speak up!" Obviously annoyed, she eyed him. Was he changing sides? A traitor at the last minute? She didn't have time with this.

"Well.. you see.. the exits are sealed..." He spat out in a nervous whisper, eyes darting around while bullets were shot downwards. Iris seemed a bit lost by his statement.

"I never said to seal the exits! Take them down!" Her face was rigid with further anger as she looked down at the door nearest to her.

"Ma'am I can't-" He stammered nervously.

"-WHY THE HELL NOT?" She interrupted, her pink eyes glowering at him. This man was poor at obeying orders and that, annoyed her. Her whole posture changed into a tense one. Her breathing heavy and somewhat shaky.

"A fire, ma'am." He stated in a regretful way. "We're trapped here unless we can find a way through the fire on the lower levels." His voice shook, as if afraid to be killed. If looks could kill...

Iris wasn't mad at him, though. Her eyes simply relayed the inner rage she felt. Leaning over she could see the flames licking and something ignited, making the whole wall shake. Well shit.. this was no good. Her body tensed and she simply stood there, frozen a moment before she could even think. "Err... well damn.." She turned to the man. "How come you didn't alert me to this sooner?"

"I did! Didn't you hear me?"

Iris paused and tried to remember the static of her radio. There was a password.. clearance something about the medical area and she vaguely could recall now the speech about getting to the basement in.. twenty minutes. Aaa... FUCK! She swore mentally, before grabbing her CB rather sloppily. "Lieutenant Colonel Tsukino, again. Sorry to bug you. I hit a bit of a uhh.. delay. I will be there as soon as possible." She spoke clearly, clearing her voice and staring hard at what seemed like the only other survivor of this slaughter. Her radio off, she smiled at the man. "I hope you like being cooked, because to get out.. you can either A: run through the fire ORRR Jump. Those are your options. What do you think?"

The man looked over the edge and swallowed, before looking back at Iris who had already left. "I-I uh.. don't leave me here, please!"

Iris thought a moment. What was that song.. Inside the fire? Yep, she dove right in, rushing down until there were flames nearly touching her toes and then she stopped. Now was the time to think this over. Maybe running into was not a good idea.. she'd burn up like paper. The heat hit her hard and she could barely breathe as she realized there was smoke as well. She backtracked some, running into the man whom was ducked low. "Dammit all..." She swore climbing back up and reaching for a fire extinguisher.

"Ma'am uhh I doubt one extinguisher is going to do anything against a whole-"

"SHUT UP AND LET ME DO MY THING!" She shouted at him as she pulled out the pin, aimed and sprayed. Her feet were braced at the force. Good thing they HAD installed the ire extinguishers. No one thought there would be any in Briggs, but now! The flames were barely affected and Iris groaned. "Any ideas?"

.....................................................................................................................................

"There's more to this than just black and white. The world can't be divided into that. There's reds and blues and greens and even more colors. How can you judge someone by one of two shades? It just doesn't seem fair to remain blind to rainbow, just because there's a puddle in your path."

"Hi, Reila! Do you, perhaps... Need a hand!?"

...........It would probably help with paperwo--NO she did not need a severed hand!

"Is this really the time for ancient puns?" THANK YOU. But ancient maybe not. It wasn't really clear that cavemen were aware of their hands. That wasn't important right now. She shook the thought out of her head, catching Ayden's next words like a bullet to a baseball glove. Maybe she did need that hand after all.

"That may be so, Miss Tsukino, but as you are undoubtedly aware, outnumbered as we may be, Briggs is never outgunned."

"Still--" they had to fall back.

"Plan what now? I haven't learned that one yet. In any case, I'll be right behind you. I may not be able to work alchemy with metal, but I can shoot."

"Haha, yeah, just follow us." I wonder how many others didn't get the memo.

"Now, I do believe that we've got an exit to carve our way towards, and some filthy Drachman dogs who are just begging for a bullet in the head. Shall we, dear friend?"

"Can you stop twirling the damn hand already!?" Reila huffed, trying to avert her eyes from the swinging object that reminded her of 28 Days Later. Her stomach lurched and she swallowed a slight burn. Even from battlefield to battlefield, despite seeing so many dead, bleeding, killed, you name it, Reila never could quite get a handle on her hatred of blood. Her body had a mind of its own, woozy in the face of so much red. The hand fucking wasn't helping. "But yes, we shall." Reila exited the room, Ayden and Akito in tow. She stealthily slipped out into the hallway, her bright eyes searing as far as the walkway went. Completely clear. It was almost scary how untouched it looked right outside her office. There was nothing; no bullet holes, no dead bodies, no vacant eyes trying to catch hers. She almost wished there were. Loud rattles of gunfire jiggled in the distance like sleigh bells in summer. People were yelling. People were hurrying. Reila's pace was swift, her eyes on the distance, her newly acquired tachi gripped firmly. Nothing moved but them, nothing followed but their shadows. The elevator was right there. Reila typed in the code. The doors flung open and there was Dai. In the middle of a crowd of weary-looking Briggs Brigade soldiers, there was Dai. Immediately, some saluted to her, but Reila was too shocked to do much more than gawk like a fool.

"What happened to your-- It's about time." Her hands went to her hips, a wink in her golden eyes. A few men around the said short-haired Daigoro Ito laughed heartily. Reila shed a smile. "I'll see you down there." They couldn't squeeze in. The doors closed, and she turned to Ayden, her expression shrouding into a serious stare. "Take the next one and make sure Akito doesn't lose you. It'll be dark. I'm going to initiate plan C60387 and figure out a way to get the lights on despite the fort being in lock down. The basement medical wing should have emergency back up power and floor lighting, but it's not enough to see more than five feet in fr--"

"This is Colonel Dauthi, General Tsukino," her radio crackled,
"If you can, or anyone else can. The intelligence division, Medical staff and wounded are moving through the mechanical garage to the basement. If anyone can help escort us there, it would be greatly appreciated and facilitate faster movement. Its hard enough as it is to be down to a few squads defending a company or two worth of people including myself. ETA at best, ten to thirteen minutes, ETA at worst. Thirty Minutes. Over." Thirty. Reila bit her lip and turned from the two with a wave.

"Seeya guys later."

Now, figuring out the medical ward was not going to be easy. Retreating inside their own fort was a precautionary measure that was never imagined to be implemented. Reila's adrenaline was on the fritz, her blood seething in anger. How could this happen? Retreat, no, falling back? It was never something they did, but her own men were shooting her own men. People were dying--people were trapped. Her eyes alighted a window, gracing against the snow outside and wishing her fingertips could trace the outline of victory with snow-covered hands. Not this time, no. This time, RIOTE managed to slowly infiltrate them, drop in from above with aircrafts that could scour over the tips of the Briggs mountain range. Never. This could never in their wildest dreams have happened. It was a nightmare.

"Gunther, I want your team to detour to the medical ward. Help. Them. Down. All of them. There's ten minutes left. Go."

"Roger that." Quick response, but she didn't have time to sigh in relief. Hastily, she ran for one of the control rooms, kicking the door in instead of taking the few moments to type in a code. A loud explosion rocked the walls, coming from the direction of an armory on the same floor. Reila's eyes danced over the many screens lined along the back wall. She lifted a device off the side rack and plugged a tiny card into the slot, wheeling around, she climbed through the glass and sprinted down the hallway, dodging dead bodies and bullets alike. A slew of Drachmans turned a corner just as she did, letting out a collective cry of surprise that told her no one else was on this floor. Good. Her eyes narrowed into slits, bullets freezing in air, blood oozing from a fresh cut on her forearm. They looked shocked. She smiled. And a gust of wind burst from her tachi when she sliced through the air, their bodies hitting the floor just as her boots did whilst still running.

"Lieutenant Colonel Tsukino, again. Sorry to bug you. I hit a bit of a uhh.. delay. I will be there as soon as possible."

"Kay," she panted through the radio, absently dwelling again on how strange it was that they shared last names. She glanced at her phone. Twenty minutes was up. Shit. With a burst of speed, Reila sprinted, practically colliding with the enemies she encountered. Her uniform was sprayed with blood, the smell permeating into her very being. She wanted to throw up. She wanted to wake up. She wanted a shot of vodka. Nearly, slipping in it, she tried to swat away her bangs, sticking to her forehead with the bodily fluid of now dead soldiers. The enemy. They were the enemy. She had to keep reminding herself, but each time she did, Reila remembered just how many of them she killed.

The siren was sounding. Reila looked around her, finally having reached the very middle of the Fort. It was beginning. Waterproof walls started to drop down from the ceiling, drains sealing themselves watertight. "Report," Reila commanded, her voice growing colder with the air around her. Office covers drew down over filing cabinets and desks. Electronics dropped into ducts between floors.

"All medical personnel are evacuated to the basement medical wing. Over." She exhaled slowly, her arms stretched out, eyes closed. Everyone's safe. Water burst out viciously, reaching her ankles in seconds. Shrieks of surprise echoed down the hallways--Drachman shrieks. A shrill cackle left her own lips for a second, vengeful gold slamming open into pure alchemic power. Ice. In moments, everything: every room, every passageway was basked in a sheen of ice. Knees. She kissed the floor, vision sailing sideways into beckoning black. She held her breath for a moment, feeling the cold and knowing their ultimate defense was only an ice skating rink on the inside. But the bombs ceased, gunpowder drenched, legs lost in a block of ice. For now, it was enough to hold them back long enough to regroup. Reila pushed herself unsteadily to her feet, stumbling into a wall of ice that resembled a mirror before gathering herself and finding the elevator.

Her fingers shook as she typed in the code for the only water-locked elevator in the entire fort. Directly in the middle of Briggs, it was placed there for plan C60387 with an entirely different set of passcodes and fingerprint recognition. Once inside, she began fiddling with the device that acted as a sort of remote control. She wasn't the best at these sorts of things, but she was at least briefed on how they worked. Emergencies like these called for desperate measures. So if only she could get the lights on then... The elevator doors opened, revealing a horrible darkness. Flame alchemists were going about creating some sort of light while others were using cellphones, flashlights, even watches as a means to see around them. Reila squinted at the faint glow of the handheld remote, pressing buttons, scrolling through options until finally the basement lights flickered on. What came next was a feeling she could not even begin to describe, for surrounding all of them on the edge of darkness were droves of RIOTE troops.
