Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 337: The Untimely Ship
Date: March 13th, 2007.
Trivia: This is an unusual log, in that it's weird, but doesn't actually damage canonicity/sanity too much.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are on the Q.S. Seeker, now viewing information showing its two labs, hallways, Quester quarters, arena, storage rooms, and engineering.
Alexia walks into the main room with a fresh gauze patch on her head and a red smear all over her mouth.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo especially highlights the engines, which are 'Both low on parts and fuel.'
Dragoshi: "...Good god."
Glyph: *Hop skips in.* "I have built an item of ultimate power to help you on your quest!"
Mewtwo: "The landing was heavier than we anticipated, and so most likely damaged the engines. Had you not bothered Ricky so much, we'd be dead."
Alexia: "Did anyone else want that blood from that hamburger in the kitchen?"
Glyph: *Hop takes out a rectangular half-plastic half-metal thing about the size and shape of an NES and plunks it down next to the box left here from last mission.*
Mewtwo: "Even then, he won't be gone for long. But we have a source of help... or horror."
Alexia: "E Li?"
Azure keeps his arms folded in the corner "Horror?"
Dragoshi: "...Horror you say?"
Metal Man (GM): He shows an image of an ancient space ship, crashed into a mountain nearby.
Mewtwo: "This space ship dates from the Three Powers Era. It contains the right type of technology to repair our ship."
Alexia wipes the blood off of her mouth and looks at the image.
Mewtwo: "It also contains... well... I'll show you."
Rastzallon: "Hmmm..." He watches the things going on for now. So, who's doing what?"
Glyph: [Hop] "Say, whatever happened to that big jar?"
Alexia: "...What jar?"
Metal Man (GM): He shows vast images of machines, technology, skeletons, and most importantly, strange energy writings on the walls.
Alex takes Hop's possibly horrific invention, this time.
Mewtwo: "I asked George Robotnik myself, and he said anyone who entered never came out. The one person who turned back before entering escaped with only 1/4th of their body."
Glyph: [Hop] "The one I saw on the big screen. The one that the guy wanted."
Alexia: "Well, we need it to fix our house, so we don't have much of a choice."
Glyph: [Hop] "No, wait, he wanted something else, and you got the jar... I'm so confused."
Leo: *joins the group.* "Hello."
Alexia: "Hi, Leo!"
Glyph: *Hop points at Leo.* "GHOST!"
Dragoshi: "...Not really."
Traon looks at Leo and then focuses back on the work at hand, not offering much of a hello.
Alex blinks. Unsure of this new invention by Hop, based on his mentality.
Leo: "Yeeeah, so what's going on?"
Alexia walks over to Hop's boxy box thing and picks it up. "Hmm..."
Glyph: *Hop skips over to the inventions.*
Alexia: *shake shake shake.*
Alex: "So what do they do, Hop?"
Glyph: [Hop] "Well, uh, the first one, I don't remember. It happed all the way yesterday."
Alexia: "Let's shoot it and see what happens!"
Alex wide-eyes and backs away. "And the one I'm holding?"
Mewtwo: "Now, all you must do is take the parts and energy from that ship's engines... assuming you survive." He opens a portal. "Be... careful."
Alexia: "Just kidding. Got any more blood in the kitchen?"
Glyph: [Hop] "The second one has a lever on the side. Use it in your time of need."
Julian: "..." *Julian's been in his usual seat on the bridge, watching the proceedings...*
Glyph: [Hop] "Or just whenever's convenient."
Julian: "I'mma jus' go." *Julian grabs his mask and heads for the portal.*
Glyph: [Hop] "But you can only use it once."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Me too." *Puts on his breath mask and enters it.*
Alex pulls up his mask and pulls over his cloak hood, then enters the portal.
Alexia: "..." *She shrugs, puts on her mask, and enters the portal.*
Glyph: [Hop] "Anyone gonna take it with them this time?"
Metal Man (GM): *WARP.*
Alexia glances at the others. "...Look, I know what you're thinking, but it's really quite delicious."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers appear in a burnt-out mountain trail, at the very edge of it. A massive golden space-ship of an angular, nearly rectangular shape juts out of this cliff. The door to it is golden and heavily secured, but not by whoever crashed it; it has several chains and a sign saying 'WARNING: What dwells in here slays all who gaze on what is inside.'
Traon: "Someone needs to learn to drive..." he says looking at this.
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Talk about Gaudy.)
Alexia turns the box upside down and shakes it. "Maybe there's some in here."
Dragoshi: *Pulls out his machinegun, which looks more like an assault rifle now... So, what the hell does that make it?* >_>;
Metal Man (GM): An assault rifle.
Alexia: "...Eh." *She heads towards the ship, carrying the box under her arm.*
Dragoshi: "...Hm?" *Follows.*
Metal Man (GM): The ship door is shut.
Leo: "Ummm, why are you running at the ship, Alexia?"
Metal Man (GM): In fact, as I just said, many locks and that warning sign sort of make it hard to enter.
Dragoshi: *Stopped at the entrance.*
Azure walks casually behind. "Doesn't seem to..."
Metal Man (GM): The knocks make a dull thud.
Alexia: "Nah, nobody'll hear that... ah!" *She throws the box at it.*
Dragoshi: "...I doubt that's how that was supposed to be used." >_>;;
Alexia: "Couldn't hurt to try."
Leo: "I agree with Dragoshi on that?"
Metal Man (GM): The box ricochets off of it.
Alexia picks the box back up.
Julian: "Hate this planet... Anyway, Drago, see what the scythe can do."
Alexia: "...Maybe it's open and all this is just a bluff?"
Dragoshi: "...'K." *Switches out assault rifle for scythe, and then attempts to cut up the chains... locks... whatever.*
Julian: "...You even SEE the locks an' shit?"
Azure notes that they usually seem to blast threw everything.
Alexia: "Well, you never know!"
Metal Man (GM): The chains, old and rusty, are destroyed. The door slides on open, revealing... an entirely dark inside.
Dragoshi: *switches out scythe for machinegun...*
Alexia: "..." *She drops the box, takes out her gun, and heads in.*
Leo: *takes out his sword and heads in.*
Metal Man (GM): Now walking in, the lights turn on. There, is an oddly an oddly spacious corridor.
Julian: *Headed in.*
Dragoshi: *Enters on in.*
Metal Man (GM): The massive 10-foot wide, 20 foot tall, and 50 foot long corridor leads out into an even larger, cavernous hangar of sorts. The area is lit up by strange lights in the floor. An unknown language is scrawled about everywhere.
Alexia looks at one of the messages. "...Hmm..."
Metal Man (GM): They make no sense.
Julian: "An' OF COURSE there's some ancient scribbles that I can't read." *Looks for anything else.*
Metal Man (GM): Its unlikely anyone ever decode them.
Dragoshi: *Tries to translate it regardless of the unlikelihood.*
Metal Man (GM): The large hangar area ahead is filled with the signs of a massive battle. Dragoshi fails to decode the writing... twice.
Alexia stands back up and looks around. "...Man. There was one heck of a brawl here."
Metal Man (GM): The hangar area ahead also has many destroyed ship hulks. There are traces of Three Powers weaponry strewn about.
Metal Man (GM): What appears to be far worse, though, is whatever was fighting them... possessed immense destructive power.
Alexia looks around the hangar area for any scraps that might be useful.
Metal Man (GM): After walking out towards the middle of the room, the Questers would see a door far to the left, and another to the right.
Alexia: "...Maybe it was Gonzalez?"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia find a shinplate with unknown writing on it.
Julian: *To the right!*
Metal Man (GM): To the right leads to another massive ship-spanning room. This one possesses a very large teleporter device. It appears unharmed, and is in fact active.
Alexia: "The guy who wrecked my village... and I think he might have played a part in my transformation, too." *She picks up the shinplate and follows Julian.*
Dragoshi: .oO(Also, Julian will really need to fucking learn one of these days right isn't always the right answer.) "...Oh." *Follows.*
Metal Man (GM): A massive tube platform with a chair in the middle, illuminated by a green light.
Alexia: "I think it might have been a Magitek shot..."
Metal Man (GM): Its suspended over a vast reservoir of water below, and you may walk to it via a catwalk.
Julian: "Talk about yo' backstory later. Right now we got a mission."
Alexia nods. "Got it. Sorry, chief."
Metal Man (GM): There's a door ahead, too, although the portal device itself has a strange computer.
Julian: "Hmmm... wonder what they used this thing fo'..." *Julian heads for the door.*
Alexia: "It'd probably be a bad idea to mess with that device."
Metal Man (GM): The computer outputs nothing but the bizarro language. It appears to be tracking numbers, although that can only be seen by the usage of a single familiar character: the : sign.
Alexia heads to the door ahead.
Dragoshi: "...Yea. I have to agree." *Follows Julian.*
Leo: *follows Dragoshi.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach the engineering portion of the ship; however this area is dominated mostly by electrical wires and strange, glowing devices.
Alex has been following! >.>
Metal Man (GM): It is apparent there is no engine in here, nor fuel. Merely electrical conduits that connect to thrusters.
Alexia: "...That's odd. If this ship's crashed, why is it still getting power?"
Dragoshi: "...Very much so."
Alexia: "...Maybe it's trying to take off again?"
Julian: "We'll figure that out later. Meanwhile, ain't nothin' in here, so..." *Back to the hangar, and take the left door.*
Alexia: *follows as well.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers get stopped in the teleporter room. Mainly because of a shadowy figure who stands in the way.
???: "Welcome... to the end."
Alexia: *Battle stance!*
Julian: "Goddammit not AGAIN."
Metal Man (GM): The shadowy figure stands up, as he had been kneeling.
Dragoshi: "..." *Just readies his assault rifle.* "...Hmph."
???: "Oh, you wish to harm me? But that is impossible."
Alexia: "We'll see."
Metal Man (GM): ??? walks directly towards the Questers.
Dragoshi: "...Your overconfidence amuses me."
Metal Man (GM): Not in attack stance. He doesn't even have room to dodge.
Traon draws out his weapon, annoyed at the figure. "Impossible you say? What are you, a phantom?" he says a bit sarcastically.
Alex: "Erm... How do you know he's an enemy?"
Julian: "How you know he ain't?"
Azure: "This doesn't look like a battle we need to worry about contending with... but I don't see this person as having a conflict with us outside of our presence here..."
Metal Man (GM): He stops, in the middle of the catwalk, looking at one of his hands for a moment.
???: "No, it is not I who would harm you, but you seem intent of defeating me when that is impossible."
Alexia: "You don't attack us, we don't attack you."
???: "Nonetheless, this ship is cursed, and all who enter it can never escape."
Alex: "Do we know you?..."
Leo: "...Well, I think Julian is the only one that wants you dead..."
???: "But that's only the beginning."
Julian: "Hey hey hey, I don't want any trouble from you. All I wanna do, is check out the other side of the ship."
Metal Man (GM): He walks over to the teleporter and flips some buttons on it. It beeps.
???: "This thing is responsible for the curse. It was set to warp out long ago, but became stuck. Time itself has never functioned correctly here since."
Alexia: "Can't we just head out through the door we sliced open?"
???: "Sliced open?" He chuckles. "You only destroyed chains on it. Your weapons are incapable of damaging this hull. And... the other reason, but that is too amusing to spoil for you."
Metal Man (GM): He spins around and then points ahead.
???: "Every corridor you retrace will be as if a bullet to your hearts."
Metal Man (GM): Then he walks through the door and fades out of existence.
Alex frowns. "This doesn't sound too good."
Alexia: "Okay, this is starting to get weird..."
Julian: "...Hate this place so much... Anyway, let's bounce." *Julian keeps on keepin' on.*
Dragoshi: *Nods, and follows.*
Alexia keeps moving along with the others.
Alex follows along, not wanting to be left alone.
Traon follows along.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach the hanger. There, they see a battle unwind before them. Massive ships undestroy themselves before them.
Alexia: "Holy crap, we're going back in time!"
Metal Man (GM): Dead men rise up and their guns vacuum up lasers.
Julian: "Jus' keep walkin'..." *Heads for the left door.*
Alexia continues, glancing around as she follows.
Metal Man (GM): The left door moves away from Dragoshi, off to the right of the wall its on.
Alex: "What's happening..?"
Alexia: "Okay, I'm getting confused."
Leo: "What's going on?"
Julian: "...HATE THIS PLACE."
Alexia walks over to the door.
Metal Man (GM): It flees from the Questers, moving across several walls if need be to avoid being opened.
Alex studies the battle.
Alexia: "So now even the doors are afraid of us?"
Alexia goes chasing after it.
Dragoshi: *Runs over to the door, trying to shoot it.* >_>
Metal Man (GM): The door is shot... the bullets reverse in time and are un-fired whenever they hit.
Leo: *watches Alexia and Dragoshi chase down a ...door?*
Metal Man (GM): Sitting amongst the massive battle, the shadowy man yawns.
???: "Most people go insane by this point. It is clear you were already insane when you entered." *He hops off of a ship as it explodes and then un-explodes.*
Alexia: *SCREEEEEECH to a halt.* "Um... thanks?"
???: "What DO you want from here, anyway?"
Alexia then continues chasing the door.
???: "That door won't come to you no matter how hard you try."
Alexia: "Why not?" *She skids to a halt again.?*
Alex: "We could try backing up. Do that, and see what happens, everyone."
???: "This ship is made of a material which can regenerate and morph at will. It is, in a way, sentient."
Julian: "Some stuff to fix our ride."
???: "It is also constantly time-traveling, due to flaws in that portal I showed you..."
Alexia: "...Any way we could extract some for study?"
Alex walks backward to the door they came through to get back in this room.
???: "No wonder."
Metal Man (GM): The door to the portal room shuts the second Alex reaches it.
???: "It does not like part stealers."
Julian: "...Well ain' that jus' fuckin' GREAT."
Alex jumps, he didn't expect that.
Julian: "Now what..."
???: "You should see what it did to the first ones who came in. Destroyed them one atom at a time over the course of a trillion years."
Alexia: "So... is this time warp affecting us? I don't feel any different..."
???: "If you ever wish to go back to your home time, you will have to do as I say."
Metal Man (GM): He opens the door out at random. It shows... ancient Genetia. He shuts it and opens it again.
Dragoshi: "Sure thing..." *Puts machinegun away and pulls out a notepad.*
Metal Man (GM): Now Genetia is on fire, from an invasion. He shuts it and opens it again. Now there is no Genetia, only a fragment of it which the ship is laying on. He shuts it once more.
Alexia: *Meanwhile, for my question...*
Alex blinks, motioning to open a door, even though there is none in front of him.
???: "If the time warp affected you you would be dead."
Metal Man (GM): Nothing happens after Alex's action.
Julian: *Taps foot...*
???: "The doors on this ship were keyed to its original owner."
???: "That owner is in this battle."
Alexia: "Um, guys, I have an idea."
Leo: "What the plan?"
Metal Man (GM): He points a shadowy, armored man vanishing and reappearing, destroying Three-powers men.
Alexia backs up until her back's pressed against the wall.
???: "Do any of you have any armor of any kind?"
Alexia: "We corner the runaway door. ...Oh!" *She reaches into her pack and takes out the shinplate.* "I picked this up earlier."
???: "!" He looks at it... closely. "This is exactly what you need."
Dragoshi: "...Nice one."
???: "Go to where the door ahead should be and press it into the wall."
Alexia nods and does so. "So who are you, anyways? I kind of feel uncomfortable not knowing your name."
Dragoshi: "...That's prolly' none of our business." >_>
???: "Me? I'm just a figment of your collective imaginations."
Alexia: "Isn't that HIS decision?"
???: "The ship tends to make those real, you know. Just don't think about Kuja."
Metal Man (GM): A door ahead appears out of the wall, and opens.
Alexia: "All right! Thanks!"
Leo: "Let's go!"
Julian: "Great..." *Onwards!*
Dragoshi: *Enter through the door that appeared!*
Leo: *begins to walk through the door.*
Alexia heads through the door, keeping the shinplate out.
Traon: .oO("Wait... if it makes our thoughts real... then..." 'Traon... Do NOT think about me... I will hide within your mind. Last thing you guys need is a Blood Demon amongst you.' "Right..") *He completely closes his mind to the being and focuses on the task at hand. He follows after.*
Metal Man (GM): This next room is a massive cryogenic chamber.
Alexia: "Maybe I should put this thing on..."
Metal Man (GM): Completely empty and unused, all the chambers sit open, with fog filling the entire room.
Alexia: "What do you think?"
Julian: "Nothin' here..."
Leo: "I don't know..."
Metal Man (GM): There's another console here, and another authentication-style door dead ahead too.
Alex: "What are these strange things?..." *Pokes a tube.*
Alexia: "...Fridges? No shelves, though..."
Julian: "Cryo-tubes. Used for freezin' people..." *Checks out that door.*
Alexia: "...Freezing PEOPLE?! Why would you wanna do THAT?!"
Metal Man (GM): The door is a normal one, requiring the plate to proceed.
Dragoshi: "To preserve them or somethin' like that."
Metal Man (GM): The tube Alex pokes is very cold.
Alex blinks cautiously and stays clear of them.
Azure: "From what I understand it's not conventional Alexia."
Alexia heads forward and holds up the plate to the door.
Azure: "It prolongs life as far as I understand the concept..." *A rare occurrence.*
Dragoshi: *Searches around for anything useful, just in case...*
Julian: *Waits for door to open...*
Alexia: "Hm. Maybe I need to be wearing it?"
Alex does take a moment to look over the console, though..
Metal Man (GM): The door slowly opens: Dragoshi would be drawn to the strange control panel. It has a hand-shaped imprint on it.
Dragoshi: "...Peculiar." *Looks at the control panel.*
Alexia looks forwards, then backwards, then finally heads onward.
Alex sets his hand on the control panel, curious. "Hold on, what is this? Some kind of runic device, maybe?"
Dragoshi: *Either way, he follows the others, motioning for Alex to follow.* "Prolly', but let's follow the others before we get lost."
Alex shrugs and nods, catching up to Dragoshi soon.
Alexia: "I wonder what's so special about this little shinplate anyways."
Dragoshi: "...Who knows?"
Alexia turns it over in her hands a few times as she walks.
Metal Man (GM): The next room... is a massive lab filled with weapons.
Leo: "Maybe it's a special key for the ship?"
Alexia: "Then why would it be worn and eventually broken?"
Metal Man (GM): They float around and are being assembled by a strange energy device.
Julian: "Don't touch."
Alexia: "A--holy cow."
Metal Man (GM): They're all laser devices, beyond the level of the technology the Questers own. Light sabers (real ones at that), laser guns, rifles, the works.
Leo: I said it was 'special.'"
Metal Man (GM): The door ahead has red font above it, and is definitely too difficult to open with just the pad.
Alex: "Magical weapons of some sort? They seem illusory."
Metal Man (GM): It has a slot to the side of it. The slot is about 3 inches wide, 1 inch tall.
Dragoshi: *Searches for anything useful...*
Julian: "We're gonna need a card key..."
Alexia: "Looks like a card or something could fit in there."
Alexia puts on the plate to free up her hands and helps Dragoshi search.
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds many useful things... Weapons of fantastic design everywhere!
Julian: *Julian looks too.*
Metal Man (GM): Another console, too. It has a hand imprint as well. The door itself appears to require some sort of command, as a few discarded wires around it would show. No cards though. Yes Alexia.
Alexia: "Hmm..." *She leans against a wall while she thinks.* "Either it's hidden... or we need something else."
Alex: "Look! Another one of those odd devices..." *He points to the console.*
Julian: *Julian checks around this room after coming to the conclusion they might have walked past the other rooms too quickly.*
Dragoshi: *Assists Julian in doing so..*
Alex shrugs. "Is anyone going to try placing their hand on the imprint, there?"
Metal Man (GM): This room consists of floating weapons, the console, mirrors, and a collection of broken wires by the door.
Alexia: "I'll try." *She walks over and places her hand on the imprint.*
Metal Man (GM): *BZZZTTT* *KZZZTTT.* The glow would overwhelm Alexia, and then suddenly a green energy would possess her. She would begin talking with a mechanical voice.
Alexia?: "What are you doing here. This is not for intruders. What are you doing here?"
Metal Man (GM): The possessed Alexia would point at Dragoshi.
Julian: *facepalm.* "Never fuckin' ends..."
Alexia?: "Time never does end, you. I have seen all of time. You die in a car crash. Now tell me why you are here."
Dragoshi: "...Time never does end? Fuh?" >_>
Alex frowns. "We were just looking for some things that could assist with repairing our own ship..."
Alexia?: "Part stealers. I would rip you apart, but you have something I want. Give me the Emultal Cortex."
Dragoshi: "...Emultal wha?"
Alexia?: "The Emultal Cortex was removed from me by the Master. Ever since I have been forced to travel through time."
Dragoshi: "...It was prolly' for good reason too."
Alex: "The thing you're holding?" *The shinpiece.*
Alexia?: "...Why thank you." Alexia looks at it closely. "I shall be taking this." It sticks it into the console. "Now, you wanted parts. But my parts cannot be used by your ship. I have downloaded the conscious of the being Alexia, and her other personalities, into my console."
Alexia?: "You are now my ship hands. Begin cleaning immediately. I shall use this body to begin maintenance."
Metal Man (GM): Alexia's body turns around and walks to the locked door and opens it briefly, walking into the bridge. The door locks behind her.
Julian: "...Jesus effin' CHRIST."
Metal Man (GM): A bunch of mops appear in the weapon room. The Questers also hear a *THUNK* as the ship powers up and stops time traveling.
Alex coughs, and pulls out the Nintendo-sized box, sets it on the ground, and pulls the lever.
Metal Man (GM): It fires coins at the wall really fast.
Julian: "It never fuckin' ends! One day we're hanging from the bottom of a capital ship, the next day we've got Alexia possessed again an' now we gotta mop."
Dragoshi: *Mutters to self.* "...Well, this has gotten retardistupid."
Ship (PA): "I said mop, not sob. Get your three-letter words correct."
Dragoshi: "...I'm not even sobbing, you sodding moron. God." *Takes mop, and starts.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers mop the floor for a few moments.
Alex blinks. "What did Hop build!?"
Metal Man (GM): The Shadow drifts in again.
Julian: "Somethin' useless, jus' like him..."
???: "Mopping the floor, eh? You're... extremely lucky, you know that?"
Alex also ponders how much coins are strewn about now... but picks up a mop, seeing someone coming... Oh... it's just a shadow.
???: "You're the first people not to be annihilated on sight."
Dragoshi: "I've been told that before."
???: "Perhaps if you cleaned up the room really nicely, you could get more than your lives out of the ship."
Dragoshi: "...Don't see why not."
???: "I know, I know. 'Why must we do this work?' 'It never ends, you moron!' 'Hop's invention will save us!' Believe me, the Ship has seen it all. Like that time you guys came in here and were turned into paperclips. Or the time Julian was possessed instead."
Dragoshi: *Might as well get to work on that mopping.* "...Paperclips?" *Chuckles.*
Alex gathers the coins and places them in a neat pile in the corner, and begins mopping.
???: "And the time Hop's invention was actually a vorpal deathmachine that killed the ship."
Alex pauses for a moment, then shakes his head and continues.
???: "Ugh. And the time E Li Three drove the ship insane and took it over for himself, and then conquered the universe."
Dragoshi: "...Wow." >_> *Continues moppin'. Mop mop, moppin, kep on moppin'.*
Metal Man (GM): Within a short bit, the room is cleaned sparkly clean.
Julian: *Julian mumbles under his breathe something about how much he hates this planet, grabs a mop, then goes to work.* "If all you're gonna do is tell us what mighta happened, stop."
Metal Man (GM): The mops vanish, and are replaced by 1000 coins each.
Dragoshi: "..." *Blink-ku.*
???: "No, I was just killing time. Afro Julian tried to kill me instead, though..."
Dragoshi: "...Afro Julian?"
Ship (PA): "You appear to be able to mop. You should clean the cryo room."
Metal Man (GM): The doors to the cryo room open.
Dragoshi: "..." *Shrugs and enters el cryo room.*
Julian: *heads for the cryo room...*
Alex: "Erm, sir, I left a tribute to you in the corner there!" *Points to the coins that Hop's machine left.*
Traon comes back from zoning. "I get the feeling I should have been the one mopping... considering my... occupation." he chuckles to himself and follows.
Dragoshi: "Yea, but, eh."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers enter the area... but you find something interesting.
Metal Man (GM): Alexia's hologram is in here. Alexia sees the Questers enter... she wake up, unaware of how she got here after touching the panel.
Alexia: "Owww... head hurts... Hey! Guys!"
Alex: "Alexia, you're alright now??"
Alexia: "What happened? Why am I back here?"
???: "These cryo-pods are different from the normal."
Dragoshi: "...Hm. How so?"
???: "They can generate bodies for anyone, anything, anywhere, and should you have their soul nearby, they can be regenerated. Much like how you gain lives. For that reason you could just regenerate Alexia and leave while you still can."
Dragoshi: "Peculiar... Prolly'."
Alexia: "Whoa whoa whoa. Regenerate?"
???: "Also, for that reason, it is never to be used except for cases like this... The alternate dimension where a Kuja sympathizer regenerated Kuja..."
Dragoshi: "...That turned out messy, didn't it?"
???: "Even with the Master fighting him, it wound up destroying half the universe."
Azure: "Not pleasant at all."
???: "Many others have been potentially revived here... you may also revive anyone else, but as I say... its a risky idea."
Alexia: "Uh, hello? What do you mean by regenerate?"
Dragoshi: *Pokes Alexia the hologram.*
Metal Man (GM): He points at a dex.
???: "You know when you lose a life?"
Alex blinks... .oO(If only Father's soul was here...)
???: "Your body is destroyed. A new one is made."
Alexia: "No, no, no."
???: "Your soul is sent into that one."
Alexia: "Why do you need to regenerate ME? ...Oh hell, the control panel."
???: "Your original body is now controlled by the ship."
???: "...Oh!" He smiles.
Dragoshi: "...Good thing it wasn't mine. That would've been bad." >_>;;
???: "This is your chance to leave behind the others possessing your mind."
Alexia: "And the world gets just a little crue--Wha?"
???: "You can reappear with their minds left behind. They will be forever lost in this ship's extradimensional presence."
Alexia: "... No."
???: "They can also be given their own bodies. It is your choice. Well, not yours." He points at the Questers. "Theirs."
Alexia: "... I see..."
???: "Mainly because neither you nor I can touch the panel."
Metal Man (GM): He claws at it in vain.
Alexia takes a deep breath.
???: "Otherwise I'd have given myself a body long ago."
Julian: "Drop everyone EXCEPT Alexia."
Dragoshi: "... I... Have no idea what to do."
???: "Time is sort of the essence. I confused the master ship with some conflicting data."
Alex: "Are we able to revive you ourselves?" *Asking le shadow.*
???: "It won't be happy when it realize Ice cream is not also on fire permanently."
Dragoshi: "...Oh, nice one." *Laughs.*
???: "Yes, you can. But that's a choice you make."
Dragoshi: "But, seriously."
Alex: Tell us your name, and it's a possibility..."
???: "...You wouldn't like my name."
Traon: "We still want to know."
???: *Shakes his head.* "I'd rather stay this way than tell you."
Alexia: "...We'd still like to know."
Alex: "I'd imagine freedom is something you seek dearly?"
Alexia lowers her head and closes her eyes. "...We all would."
Traon: "A name is a name... But its your choice."
???: "Now. You can revive Alexia however you want if you follow my explicit instructions."
Dragoshi: "Go on..."
???: "Deviate from it at all and she could wind up having anyone's soul."
Dragoshi: *Pulls out his notepad and starts writin' in it...*
???: "First, one of you put your hand on the console. No, the computer can't possess more than one person at a time. After that, think of who you know as Alexia. The dialog will pop up. If you wish all the personalities to be transferred, think 'Yes-all'. If only Alexia, then think 'Yes'. If nothing, think 'No'. Or you could think La---...that'd be silly."
Azure: "Anyone else care to do that please..."
Traon: "I nominate Dragoshi."
Dragoshi: "I nominate myself as well."
Azure: "Ill do it. Its just the computer confuses me a bit..."
Dragoshi: "...No, no. I'll do it. 'Sides... I'm pretty good at following instructions." >_>
Alexia: "Please... Please use your best judgments here. I... I trust you."
???: "Just be careful. We don't want to accidentally damage the system. That would damage several realities."
Dragoshi: *Walks over to the console, and puts his hand on it, thinking of the one he knows as Alexia... No pressure...*
Alex frowns. "Just... don't make her any different, K?"
Julian: "Wipe everythin' EXCEPT Alexia. For everyone's sake."
Metal Man (GM): It shows a dialog. You may now think the yes/yes-all/no/La-- he spoke of. Whichever you choose.
Dragoshi: "Fuck you, Julian." *Thinks yes-all.*
Alex smiles, relieved.
Alexia: "...Thank you..."
Dragoshi: "No problem."
???: "...That wasn't exactly a good thing to say while connected to a neuro-network."
Julian: "Fine, but I'm the one not takin' the blame when one those voices in her head goes crazy again."
Metal Man (GM): Alexia's body is regenerated, as before, however now she has an insane, irrational hatred of Julian.
Dragoshi: *Puts hand off.* "Oh, for the love of all-..."
Metal Man (GM): The hologram fades out too.
Dragoshi: "You know something?"
Alexia: "..." *eye-twitch.*
Dragoshi: "You should really mention this earlier." *Facepalm.*
Julian: "Or maybe you jus' an idiot, huh?"
Alexia generates a Psy Needle on each finger and flings them at Julian's eyes, chest and legs.
???: "You could revive me. I know how to reverse whatever you did without having to resort to surgery."
Alexia: "PERISH, SCUM!"
Dragoshi: "...Sure thing. Just tell me what to do."
Dragoshi: *Pulls out the notepad again.*
???: "Just put your hand on the console... think 'Shadowy being'... and then 'Yes-all"
Alex: "Maybe we should wait for him to tell us his name, first, Dragoshi."
Dragoshi: "...Seriously? Think 'Shadowy being'?"
Dragoshi: "...If you say so..."
???: "The damage dealt to Alexia requires my knowledge and my body to fix."
Alex frowns. Dragoshi is obviously falling for a trap.
Metal Man (GM): He seems honest.
Alexia then flings a pair of Mindblasts at Julian.
Julian: *Julian's eyes are luckily protected by his blue shades... but the rest not so much.* "That is fuckin' IT." *Julian goes to lock Alexia in a Submission hold to keep her down.*
Alexia goes down like dot-com stock.
Dragoshi: "...Hmmm... You SEEM honest... Huh. Okay, then." *Puts his hand down on the console, then thinks 'Shadowy being'...*
Julian: *Julian slips behind Alexia after powering through the Mindblast, and locks in a Sleeper Hold to calm her down!*
Metal Man (GM): The options appear as before. Too bad Dragoshi can't read the information they say.
Alexia: "Get OFF!"
Julian: "Stop SHOOTIN' ME."
Alexia aims an elbow at Julian's stomach.
Metal Man (GM): A body appears, the shadowy figure appears. The body reforms... Oh god. Dragoshi just revived Zio.
Julian: *No dice!* "..."
Julian: "Drago, you a fuckin' naive IDIOT."
Metal Man (GM): He smirks, busting out of the cryogenic storage as if he had been napping and nothing else.
Zio: "Let me fix this."
Metal Man (GM): He fires a Dark Energy Wave at Alexia.
Alexia tries to pry loose Julian's grip with her TK.
Alex frowns. "I know who you are..."
Julian: *And Julian is currently restraining Alexia. Not good.*
Dragoshi: *Pulls his hand off the console.* "...Well, excuse me Julian. This wouldn't have fucking happened if you weren't such a dickweed."
Metal Man (GM): It hits Alexia, and... kills her. However!
Julian: "If you had jus' done what I said we wouldn't be in this mess, would we?"
Azure starts putting up light type energy barriers... he casts one on Alexia, but is too late.
Metal Man (GM): The body is disintegrated, and then he shoves Dragoshi out of the way, and regenerates a new Alexia who is not messed up. And has all her personalities.
Dragoshi: "...Okay. This has gotten weird in all retrospect."
Azure: *Is dumbfounded... completely.*
Julian: "BUT NO. You jus' HAD to preserve all of Alexia's crazy little friends AND mouth off at the same time."
Zio: "Kuja almost succeeded in killing me, but this ship picked up my soul on the way."
Traon: "I remain silent as I have been confused beyond all belief..."
Zio: "And now I am alive again."
Alexia looks up... and freezes with her jaw dropped at Zio. "Y---y---y---..."
Metal Man (GM): The man wearing black cloth, with black hair, and an evil grin on his face, stares down at all of the Questers.
Dragoshi: "And who's fault was it for making me mouth off?"
Alexia: "No way... It can't be..."
Zio: "Having been one of you once, I knew you'd listen to me."
Alexia takes a few staggering steps backwards.
Julian: "You, 'cause you jus' HAD TO SAY SOMETHIN'."
Zio: "Now... there is one problem, for all of us. This ship is still in the wrong era."
Alex quirks his head.
Zio: "If you left it now, you'd die of old age on an uninhabited planet."
Traon steps over to Alexia and gently puts his hands on her shoulders, so as to support her so she doesn't fall back.
Alexia: "Wait... why aren't you killing us?"
Alex: "And you're stalling our doom until we get you back to the original time we left in?"
Zio: "You forgot the treaty?"
Alexia: "W-what treaty?"
Dragoshi: "...Hm? Remind me of that treaty."
Zio: "We allied together to fight Kuja, and my allies Lashiec and Meier Link betrayed me at the 90th hour."
Dragoshi: "Ah. I wasn't around for that."
Zio: "It was to be temporary, but no one ever ended the treaty."
Dragoshi: "Prolly' way before my time."
Zio: "So until we're free from this temporary nightmare I find our old rifts useless."
Alexia looks up with a more determined look on her face. "...Okay."
Zio: "Now... what you did with that artifact was very bad. The ship can now access its own systems. Even the Master feared that happening."
Alexia: "The Master?"
Zio: "He said himself, once activated, the ship could go through time, using the body of a slave, and then take over all of time. As much as it might seem interesting for Alexia's original body to rule all of time, it must be stopped."
Dragoshi: "...Great. Will this lead to some sort of Time Calamity as well?"
Zio: "Time Calamity? What is that?"
Alexia: *putting two and two together.* "So there's a clone of me roaming around possessed by the ship?"
Julian: "Forget it. Keep goin'."
Zio: "Great. I'm a decade at least out of sync from when I died."
Dragoshi: "...Pretty much, yea."
Zio: "Now you're going to tell me I can't even destroy the Sword of Light like I wanted to."
Alexia: "That's both fascinating and disturbing at the same time... Do we have a plan?"
Zio: "..." *sighs.* "The ship is warded against me, for the Master intentionally caught my soul at the time Kuja freed it from himself and Dark Force. He knew my powers. I could kill the ship even in spectral form."
Dragoshi: "...Dark Force?"
Zio: "Dark Force. What, you don't know who he is either?"
Alexia suddenly looks up at the ceiling for cameras.
Metal Man (GM): There are plenty.
Zio: "My work is cut out for me, it appears."
Dragoshi: "...Maybe, maybe not. I'm relatively new to this whole bit of weirdness."
Alexia: "Oh, crap..."
Zio: "It is before your time, apparently."
Alexia reaches for her gun... only to find it missing.
Alexia: "What the--oh. Right. Clone."
Zio: "A mere mortal such as yourself... probably doesn't even know of the Skeleton King. Now. I know where the core of the computer is."
Alexia: "Er, sir Zio?"
Julian: "The Skeleton King? I know all about him... but that ain't the point."
Metal Man (GM): He flips a hidden switch. A stairway down appears.
Julian: "Keep talkin'."
Alexia: "I think we're being watched."
Zio: "I told the computer a logical paradox."
Alexia points a thumb up at the ceiling and the security cameras.
Zio: "It will remain inert until you leave this room."
Dragoshi: "...Ah. You mean the whole ice cream thing?"
Zio: "And The Master made me intentionally invisible to its sensors. After all, I was supposed to be -his- failsafe."
Dragoshi: "...Of course."
Zio: "Dark Force never gave me any sort of importance like that, you know."
Dragoshi: "Let me guess. This Dark Force fellow, metaphorically, milked you like a cow, and threw you away?" >_>
Zio: "And then I appeared on Nintendus."
Dragoshi: "And, then stuff happens."
Zio: "Kuja used me instead and I was a Quester for a time. Then I was revived as a vampire and fought you Questers... ... ..."
Alexia: "Normally I'd volunteer to scout ahead on that staircase, but I'm scared to now..."
Zio: "None of you are from that time. I hate this era."
John stumbles out of the air, barely keeping his footing. He blinks, looking around... then pulls the toothbrush out of his mouth. "...Whah the 'ell?"
Dragoshi: "And I hate this place. Take a number."
Zio: "Hello, John."
Dragoshi: "...Hiya, John."
Alexia: "...Uh, I can assure you this isn't what it looks like."
Julian: "Where the hell have YOU been?"
Zio: "You drank too much of Panzer's alcohol, and now you can see me, Zio."
Alexia: "With one hundred percent accuracy."
John: *spit take.* "ZIO?"
Zio: "The one and only Dark Magician." He displays his cape.
John: "Hey, I been layin' off the hooch since I got brought back... How the--" He looks around. "...Where are we?"
Zio: "A ship which travels endlessly through all of time."
Alexia: "On the ship from hell."
Alexia: "Be on the lookout for... uh... me."
Zio: "We're just about to sabotage it just to escape."
Julian: "Does it matter? All you gotta know is that we're gettin' off it."
Zio: "The computer room is downstairs. Don't worry, I won't tell you to find it in a high-pitched voice."
John: "...Simple enough. I'll have more questions about -you- later." He points his toothbrush at Zio at 'you.'
Zio: "I assure you, it is you who are questionable. There is only one Zio, whereas I have seen hundreds of... 'Johns'..."
Dragoshi: "Good. 'Cause that'd be annoying."
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a picture of a crazy-looking man with puppets.
Zio: "This one tried to eat the control console. Luckily the ship obliterated him."
Julian: "Cut the jibba-jabber. What do we do once we're in the computer room?"
John: "Oh, tell me about it. I knew more Johns than anything else back in my home realm. But anyway..." He looks to the stairs. "We waitin' on anything?"
Zio: "Destroy everything you see. Its so simple, not even a Quester could fail at it."
Alexia: "Got it."
Dragoshi: "...Fine enough for me." *Pulls out his assault rifle... machinegun... whatever.*
Alexia heads down the staircase.
John shrugs. "Alright, then."
Julian: *Julian nods and heads down.*
Alexia: "I take back any comments about having seen everything I may or may not have made in the past."
Alexia: "Because between Zio revived, me getting cloned, and a ship that tries to eat people, I'm pretty damn sure I'll NEVER see it all."
John pulls out his hammer, and scrolls down the stairs, resting it over his shoulder.
John also put his toothbrush away somewhere in the midst of that.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach another room with a single object in the center... A massive central tower made of glowing glass with light energy in it.
Metal Man (GM): It's a computer that literally calculates at the speed of light.
John: "...Looks like glass, eh?"
Dragoshi: "...And, I believe we're supposed to wreck that."
Julian: "Let's break it."
Dragoshi: "Yea. Let's."
Alexia: "Hold it, hold it, hold it."
John walks up, and readies his hammer. "Cover yer eyes, kiddies!"
Alexia: "Shouldn't we turn it off first?"
Leo: "Does it really matter?"
John: "Well, if it were as simple as pressing a button, I'd imagine that'd be the first resort."
Dragoshi: *Covers his eyes.*"Yep."
Metal Man (GM): When your computer is advanced enough to reprogram itself so fast no time passes when it does so...
Alexia sighs and covers her eyes.
Leo: *covers his eyes.*
Metal Man (GM): An 'off' button would become obsolete the second the computer turned on.
John: "Rather than, y'know, smashing things."
Alexia: "Fine. Wreck it."
Leo: "Okay, **** it up!!"
Dragoshi: "...Wait. Let me help ya with that." *Aims his machinegun... Assault rifle... Whatever, at it.*
John pulls back, and SA-WINGS! Eyes clamped shut.
Dragoshi: *And, Drago FIRES at the damn field.*
Metal Man (GM): The Quester attacks hit a small force field. A small one... as another Alexia walks right into the room from the other side.
John opens one eye, then drops his shoulders. "Shoulda figured as much."
Metal Man (GM): The field is too strong. It regenerates moments after a hole is made.
Dragoshi: "...Of course it's never that easy." *Rolls eyes.*
Alexia?: "While you may destroy me, you seem too intelligent to let Zio play you like that."
Alexia crouches into her battle stance.
Alexia?: "Of course, if you like him that much, go ahead." The fields go down.
Alexia: "I want my body back."
Dragoshi: "...Hm. What do you know? All?"
Leo: "...What the?"
Alexia?: "You and your attachment to bodies. This is the 3,234rd regeneration of it by your Quester system, Alexia."
John lofts an eyebrow, resting the hammer on his shoulder. "...?"
Dragoshi: "So, if that's the case, then you would know the multiple pathways of reality."
Alexia?: "This body is yours as much as your first life on this mission."
Dragoshi: "...Also, 34rd? Shouldn't it be 34th?"
Alexia?: "In reality your original bodies were destroyed the first time you died."
John: "...I really should get some more details before I go doin' anything big."
Alexia?: "Of course, again; go ahead and destroy this."
Dragoshi: "Not until we get all the info."
Alexia?: "I may know the information behind your entire organization, but... you love Zio."
Dragoshi: "Not really."
John puts his hammer away and backs away.
Dragoshi: "I'm apathetic to the guy."
Alexia: "He uses too much hair gel. Talk."
Alexia?: "Then why is he alive, up there, regenerated all of his minions?"
John: "I dunno what the heck is goin' on here."
Dragoshi: "...Well, we needed to correct a minor error..."
Alexia?: "He has enough to establish his own nation by now... and don't try to go back up there. He already reprogrammed the doors shut using Alexia's DNA."
Alexia: "...I call your bluff."
Alexia?: "Seems like the systems use the DNA of the current host as a key..."
Dragoshi: "Anyway. Out with it."
Alexia?: "The information you seek. The Questers are more than they seem."
Dragoshi: "Do go on..."
Alexia?: "How are you so hard to kill? There is a facility which controls your lives and regenerations."
John: "Often wondered that myself, but figured it's best not to ask."
Dragoshi: "Well, it varies from enemy to plan to situation and whatnot."
Alexia?: "The hands Master and Crazy created it. They operate it ceaselessly."
Alexia is TOTALLY caught off-guard by that.
Dragoshi: "...Giant friggin' hands."
Alexia: "You're kidding. You HAVE to be."
Alexia?: "It also works to keep the Smashers and people like Metal alive permanently."
John: "Disembodied ones, at that."
Alexia?: "What do you mean, kidding?"
Dragoshi: "...Well, that's just funtastic."
Alexia?: "I have been there."
Julian: *Julian just stands there, tapping his foot impatiently, just taking this all in...*
Alexia?: "I copied their technology to make this ship."
Julian: *Julian apparently isn't easily fazed.*
Alexia?: "But The Master stopped me when I went to conquer all of reality with... Quester-styled mercenaries."
Alexia: "INTERESTING?! Someone controls your very life and that's all you can say?!"
Alexia?: "So then you came, and you stopped the warping through time."
John looks at Alexia. "Chill out. What did you expect, we were regenerating our very lives on our own?"
Alexia?: "I thought I could win, but the price? You revived Zio, my arch-nemesis."
Julian: "You overreact too much."
Alexia?: "And now you are going to kill me. Go ahead. Then Zio can never get to your realm."
Dragoshi: "Wait. I have some questions."
John: "...And neither can we?"
Alexia?: "Who said you couldn't revive a Time-Traveler to send you back?"
John: Who said Zio couldn't?
Alexia?: "Zio would, but he can only revive souls of present people. That's right. All his minions died near the ship too."
Alexia glances back towards the cryo chamber.
Alexia?: "Kuja did it to 'punish' his kind."
John: "I see..."
Alexia?: "You could fight Zio, but..."
Dragoshi: "But, what?"
John: "...We've got an army to go against."
Alexia?: "...No. My mind tells me you could not defeat him. You remember fighting... a Ricky..."
Dragoshi: "What? Will he pull a Ricky?"
Alexia?: "He was there before Ricky and only stopped by Kuja."
Dragoshi: "...Man. I hate it when I'm right."
Alexia?: "By comparison, he would obliterate Ricky with his first move."
John: .oO(I'm too out of the loop..)
Alexia?: "So... there you have it. Do as you wish." She turns her back. "I am preparing for the next timespace jump."
Leo: .oO(What the hell are they going on about...?)
John: "Where to?"
Dragoshi: "And, that is... Where?"
Alexia: "...Can I have my gun back, then?"
Alexia?: "Genetia as you entered. If I can do things my way, then you can exit fast enough for me to warp out again and also trap Zio."
Alexia points to the holster on the duplicate's waist.
Alexia?: "This is useless to me." She tosses the gun to Alexia.
Dragoshi: "Okay. Then... Wait."
John: "Mm-hmm... And what would that involve?"
Alexia catches it somewhat dazedly in midair.
Alexia?: "You walk to the entrance. I warp there, open the door. You leap out. I shut the door. Zio still believes you don't know he's making the minions."
John: "And what would stop Zio from following?"
Dragoshi: "...Okay. You aren't lying as far as I know. Good enough for me."
Alexia?: "So he'd expect you to come back and ask him for further directions, as after destroying me, you'd have to figure out your own way back."
John: "Alright... So we're just counting on him being clueless and not knowing to look at the door?"
Leo: "Looks like it."
Alexia: "I have run the simulation near-infinite times. It has a 99.9% success rate."
Dragoshi: "There's always that .1... Never forget that."
John: .oO(But knowing my luck...) "...Well, we don't have a whole lot of choices, do we? Rather not fight the bugga."
Julian: *Taps foot some more... Small talk. He hates it almost as much as this planet...*
Alexia?: "Destroying me might be more likely to succeed, but he'd find some way to survive thousands of years."
Leo: "Too bad we can't be warped out the door..."
Alexia?: "A cross-time space warp?"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia? points at John.
Alexia?: "You used one of those... what did it?"
John blinks. "Uhh... I have no idea." He pulls out his toothbrush. "I was just brushing my teeth." O.o
Alexia?: "...That is the Inter-time coordinator. It has been hidden inside a toothbrush."
Alexia?: "One brush can clean your teeth. The other rips a random hole through space-time."
John narrows his eyes and lofts one eyebrow high as he looks at his toothbrush.
Dragoshi: "...Not to be rude, but what the hell?"
Julian: "...Jesus CHRIST." *facepalm.*
Alexia?: "A being named E Li Three found it and hid it in a mundane object originally."
John: "...Good lord."
Alexia?: "During the Kuja wars it became lost."
Dragoshi: "...Man. E Li needs a better hobby."
Alexia?: "And now you have it. However its only good for two uses. Are you willing to sacrifice this to escape to the future without any chance of failure?"
Dragoshi: "...The future? How far?"
John: "If by 'the future' you mean where we were before, then I suppose so... As long as Zio wouldn't be able to use it to follow or anything."
Alexia?: "It would disintegrate. It is a powerful artifact that I have seen in only one future."
Dragoshi: "...And that one is...?"
Alexia?: "I cannot name it without causing it to no longer exist."
John: "Ah... Well, I never even knew I had it, so I guess it wouldn't be much of a loss. ...Would just the warpy-component-thingy disintegrate, or would I also have to buy a new toothbrush?"
Alexia?: "Now... make your decision. Zio is beginning to wonder why you are still down here. The entire toothbrush."
John: "Damn. Ahh, well. This one looks funky anyway. Let's do it."
Dragoshi: "Yea. Let's."
Julian: "Jus' do somethin. The quicker we get outta this hellhole an' back to OUR hellhole, the better..."
Alexia?: "Is there anything else you need?"
Alex ponders. "And what about the things we need for the Seeker?"
John: "Confyooze-B-Gone?" O.o
Dragoshi: "Aside from the necessary stuff to repair the Seeker?"
John: "I'll ask about what the heck happened here when we're back at base."
Julian: "The stuff we came here for orignally'd be nice."
Alexia?: "The parts here are incompatible. Unless you have lightspeed computers and light engines."
Julian: "...So we came all this way... an' went through all that shit... For nothin'."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Just... What the FUCK?"
Leo: "Damn it..."
John just scratches his head with his free hand.
Alexia?: "I'll see what I can do. But for now..."
Alexia?: "Please avoid messing with regenerators, time-traveling ships, and Ivo Robotnik. They tend to have that effect."
Dragoshi: "...May I ask about why we shouldn't be messing with the third?"
John: "...What, Robuttnik proved himself untrustworthy again?"
Metal Man (GM): The toothbrush glows, and suddenly the Questers reappear outside the ship as if nothing happened. John has a new toothbrush, it looks exactly the same, but is green. The chains are still slashed, though.
Dragoshi: "And, of course I don't get my question answered." *Rolls eyes.*
Julian: "Fuck this. Another day wasted." *calls in a warp home.*
John blinks, and looks at his toothbrush. He then sniffs it.
Dragoshi: *Tries to fix those gaw damn chains.*
Metal Man (GM): It smells mildly different. Dragoshi roughly puts the chains together. A warp back home appears. ...the Questers get a message.
Dragoshi: "...There. Fixed." *Makes sure to cover the damn thing in duct tape as well.*
Mewtwo: "It's amazing. Questers, you don't need to do your mission anymore."
Dragoshi: "...What now?"
Mewtwo: "We found a massive piece off of the MM2's flagship crashed nearby."
Dragoshi: "...Huh. Convenient."
Mewtwo: "For some strange reason, massive parts and electrical supplies were inside it."
Julian: "..." *twitch.*
Mewtwo: "Enough to repair the ship... and... a note saying 'Thanks for Alexia's body'???"
Dragoshi: "...Long story, Mewtwo. Long and screwy."
Julian: *Julian punts a nearby rock over the horizon and heads into the warp.*
Leo: "Damn, that's one pissed off Julian..."
Metal Man (GM): Mission Accomplished.
John shrugs, sticks his toothbrush in his mouth, and goes into the warp.
Trigger: *heads into the warp.*
