Liquid Salvation [RP Thread] (ON HIATUS)

Post by Gist on Wed Jul 10, 2013 12:25 pm

It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, it only matters whether you get up.
Liquid Salvation
A GistxKuori Statistical Roleplay

The Kingdom of England was prosperous during these times. Machines of great size and stature were present everywhere, and it was almost impossible to go anywhere without seeing small white puffs of steam wherever one went. Steam powered most of the world by now, and it was an efficient energy source given that water was present almost everywhere… or had been, anyway. A mysterious drought had taken over the Earth, with no leads as to its cause or reason, simply that the oceans and lakes had simply dried up and were nowhere to be seen, leaving vast, white lands from where the salt was left behind. It is the mission of two to find the energy source and necessary life component that will save all, but is it possible to find something that doesn’t exist? That once-omnipresent clear liquid has not been seen in over two hundred years. Will you be able to save our world, or shall it perish, dried up like an unused sponge?

At first she felt nothing, her mind was blank and it seemed as if she was suspended in space, unable to move even a single muscle. Or perhaps it was simply that her arms and legs were detached from her body. She also was unable to see anything. But that could also be because her eyes had been both gouged out. She could feel something around the joints of her body, something cold and metallic sliding across various areas of her body. Then on her shoulders and knees she felt that same cold metallic feeling. The last thing she heard before she fell unconscious was a click.

She awakened to a sound, a voice it seemed, and opened her eyes. There was a stinging sensation in her left eye and she noticed that she was now suspended in a vat of a liquid of some sort. In front of her was a piece of glass and on the other side of a glass stood two people, a man and a woman. Both of them wore white coats and they seemed to be talking about something. However the liquid and glass did a fine job of soundproofing this prison of hers and she could not hear their conversation. The pain from the liquid in her left eye had soon become too much to bear and just before she shut her eyes she was able to catch a glimpse of her reflecting within the glass. She then passed out once more.

She awoke in a dark room with the only source of light being a spotlight upon her person. Everything was still and everything was silent for a few moments before a loud screech of microphone feedback resonated through the room. Then a voice from above her began speaking. "Project ODIN: Prototype Unit 01; Codename: Freyja. You are given the mission of finding a source of water for the sake of mankind." the male's voice announced over what is assumed to be an intercom, "Water is an invaluable resource for both life as well as a source of power. With the ongoing drought humanity has struggled to survive and our population has diminished severely. If you accept the task of finding salvation for the entirety of humankind then please nod your head."

She nodded with not even a sign of hesitation.

"Very well," the voice continued, "However since this is a monumental task you will not be alone. You will be given a partner on this mission." The sound of gears turning could be heard and a small flicker of light shone through a door that was slowly opening. Another spotlight lit up, illuminating a spot only a few feet away from where she was standing, as if inviting the guest to that exact location. "Now then, if the two of you would acquaint yourselves with each other."

The cleric watched as the cyborg/android was debriefed on the situation. Laura was unimpressed, knowing that the thing was an abomination and whatever human part of that machine would be eternally damned. There was no fault of that unfortunate human soul, just that it was unlucky to be in that situation. Laura believed that the abomination's name was Freyja. It reminded her of a pagan goddess somewhere in the far north. This mattered not, though. What did matter was finding a source of water. She needed to assist the thing in this endeavor. The mechanical voice that had been introducing the abomination to the situation at hand had told them to introduce themselves. Silence rung through the air, and Laura was sure that Freyja would not make the first move. She sighed and began the introductions. "Hello. My name is Laura. I am here to assist you in finding a source of water. I hope that we can work well in this endeavor." Laura had her doubts, but regardless, she plastered a false smile on her face and extended her hand out towards the thing.

For a moment after the cleric had introduced herself Freyja remained silent, taking in the image as well as the name and voice of the woman and saving it within her memory. Then she raised her hand and took the woman's in a firm handshake and looking to meet her in the eyes. She could see the woman's face clearly however with the mask which covered quite a bit of her face the woman was unable to see her eyes. It, along with her height and mechanical augmentations, made her appear rather imposing. "My name, Freyja. Pleased to meet you." the android spoke, her voice metallic and monotonous, as if she was void of all emotion.

Laura considered the thing as it shook her hand. The mask covered its face so that she couldn't see it. It could probably see every move she made regardless of whether its eyes were uncovered or not, anyway, though. Damn technology. She sighed as she looked up to the speaker above. How long do we have before we need to embark? Do we have time to gather supplies?" Laura doubted that the cyborg needed supplies, but Laura knew that she needed food and whatever water she was allowed. She silently wondered what Freyja's mechanical side was powered by. Most machines were powered by water. Electricity... just couldn't be harnessed as a usable energy source. If in fact, Freyja also needed water, they might be in a spot of trouble, considering that there wasn't much of it...

Freyja paused at Laura's question. Of course, the woman was still fully human, so she would need more sustenance than herself who was only 37.6% human. "You may." The android responded along with a nod. Neither her expression nor tone of voice changed as she spoke. It was still the same emotionless face hidden behind the mask and the same monotonous voice as before. "Time limit: thirty minutes. Location: front gates." With that said Freyja walked past the woman, disappearing through the exit and making her way rather quickly to the front gates of the city.

Laura nodded at Freyja without so much as a word. It went past her without anything in return. She sighed and turned to follow it into the streets. It had disappeared before she had gotten there, so she looked around. She needed a bit of food before she left on the journey. She walked to the butcher's shop, contemplating what course of action the two would take once they left London. Where would they go? Certainly Freyja would know exactly where the two would need to go. If they needed to, they could cross the Channel... It was as dry as a rack of bones. She shuddered at that. She knew thta they needed water as soon as possible. She arrived at the butcher's counter. "Excuse me. I'd like five kilogrammes of beef jerky, please." "On it. That'll be seven pounds, thirty shillings."  Laura got the money she needed together. The butcher came back with the meat and she handed him the money. Thanks came from both and Laura set out for the town gate, wondering what Frayja could possibly be doing as it waited on her...

The city seemed far less technologically advanced than she remembered it to be. Everything appeared to be so much more clunky and inefficient. The massive machinery that surrounded her were unimpressive, far too slow in fact. They were still attempting to live off of steam power here, odd that a civilization would be this far behind in technology. Team power was incredibly inefficient and it just didn't make much sense for humans to be using a finite resource that is paramount to their survival as a source of energy when electricity is a far more efficient and abundant resource. And with this drought bringing the land to the point where water was so sparse it was a wonder why they haven't began harnessing electricity.

The android arrived at the gates and simply stood. Stood still and did nothing as she waited for the woman, Laura, to finish gathering her supplies so they could head out.

Laura thought hard about her fate as she walked to the town gate. Was she capable of competing with the android? Why would they send it company if they knew full and well that she would be much more vulnerable than it? To keep it... company? She didn't know. It just didn't make sense. She sighed. Oh well, at least she knew that maybe she would receive recognition for her services... Just maybe. Looking at the town's entrance, she saw Freyja standing there, motionless. Looking at the sun, she saw that it was a bit past noon. She broke into a jog towards the entrance, hoping that the thirty minutes hadn't passed faster than she thought. She wasn't very skilled at keeping track of time... Puffing, she was now standing beside Freyja. "Are you... ready to depart?" she said in between puffs. That took more out of her than she thought it would... She hoped that she would become a bit more fit during this trek...

Freyja had been keeping careful track of time as she waited at the gates with a mental timer to count the seconds that had passed. 1788...1789...1790... That was how far she had gotten before detecting life signatures approaching her. She turned toward the direction it was coming from and as she expected the woman named Laura came running over. "Right on time." she spoke. Another ten seconds and the android would have taken off without her. She wouldn't even have bothered to leave a note or some sort of message for the woman. "Yes, we're going." the android responded when she woman asked if she was ready to leave and turned around taking quick steps out of the city.

Battle number 1! :'D

The two walked on the road as the high noon sun began to move towards the west. Laura perspired a bit; stuffy robes may not have been the best choice in such warm weather. She debated taking most of her clothes off, but how would she appear then, as an ambassador to England's royalty and highest clergy? It would be unacceptable. She sighed as she regarded her fate: forever doomed to be alone and miserable. Just as she was about to continue reminiscing, though, she saw dark forms in the distance. She grabbed her staff from her back and held it in front of her. "I trust that you can fight, Freyja? After all, I'm sure that is something that would have been programmed into  you, no?"

Freyja starts at cell H-6

She had detected life signatures aside from the woman she was traveling with, ones not belonging to humans. From the way they had approached the two of them they seemed to be hostile. Only two of them though, and from the looks of things they were far lesser life forms than her. When the woman asked if she were able to fight Freyja had already deployed the massive blade-like weapon on her back which was now floating beside her. "Combat protocol: initiated. Entering Blade Form. Engaging hostile life signatures." the android announced as she began to hover a few inches above the ground.

Laura went forward towards the things and looked around between the two of them. One of them was a large bee and the other was a sort of shade, though she didn't understand how it was able to be out in the light. Was this coincidence, or was there something more sinister at work? Was something supernatural the cause of the unnatural drought? Surely they would find out as they made their journey towards the Channel; maybe there was something left flowing through there, but she doubted it, mainly because it would be too easy to have completed this task. She grabbed her staff and pointed it towards Freyja. "O, Gods, hear me now! Bless this soul with the light from within! Let her see her task at hand!" A small ball of light that was almost invisible passed from her staff to inside her comrade, making her glow the tiniest bit. If the atmosphere were less lit, there would be a more profound effect...
