Iriadne uses Grasp of the Void on Li!
[*]

Li no longer exists...

To level the playing field, the plant creature reached into its innermost power and summoned a pool of gray liquid beneath the feet of one of the students.  He struggled to get out of it but there was no escape.  He sank as if stuck in quicksand, and the harder he tried to break free, the faster it swallowed him until he was completely the gone, the liquid seeping into the ground and their ally never to be seen again.

Iriadna attacks Alice!  5 Dmg! (ATK) [Alice evades Bleeding]

With a whip of thorns, the plant creature lashed out at the human who so boldly stood her ground in front of her, but with minimal effect.

Iriadna waits.

"Aaaaaaaaayy noooooobs!  Your hero has arrived at last!"

A loud voice echoed through the garden but the source of it was unknown.  Far away in one of the garden's trees sat Deetra on a branch.  No one could see her with her cover.  She waved a hand causing a long sniper rifle to materialize, and she set it up so that she could take aim at the plant creature through her scope.  With the pull of a trigger, a muffled shot resounded through the area.  Her aim had been true.  This was going to be child's play.

"Make sho you takin' notes, noobies!!" the voice prodded at the students already fighting the creature.

Deetra attacks Iriadna!  13 Dmg! (ATK)

Deetra waits.

The Tranquil Rest mote reverbates with serene silence...

Conlin cannot move or act! He recovers 2 HP and 4 SB


Electric blue sat unfazed as the attractive muscular boy melted into oblivion. "How unfortunate," the quiet boy mused, looking around between himself and the other two left to fight their foe and her tentacles. Between the three of them, it seemed they would stand much of a chance – even with his dull and vaguely useful supportive ability. "Seriously," he quipped out of frustration. How would they possibly–

Ariel's piercing eyes shifted as some bullet shattered the air and struck the plant bitch. A voice from nearby and yet so far away. The licentious student glanced to the trees none too far off; their so-called hero must have been sniping from afar. Well, so long as the girl with the shield in hand sponged up the damage for them they might just have this in the bag. "I suppose I best get into range then," he sighed, moving over to one of the vines which had sprouted up from the ground.

Ariel moves to E3!

Once more the trio of ethereal women clinging to him began to spasm as he stepped into position. They released a horrid cry and the vine seemed to shake in response. The plant did not fall. Nevertheless, Ariel smiled slightly. Perhaps his powers did not lend themselves to overtly offensive tactics, but no one could deny that he was able to get a job done. His eyes focused on the plant bitch and the other vine. If he could get them near enough to one another he might just be able to hit two birds with one stone.

A discordant harmony reverberates! Thorny Vine 2 is hit! 5 Abs Damage!

Re: CRISIS: Collapse of Existence

Post by Vergil on Fri Dec 25, 2015 3:46 am

Hazel became exasperated and let out a sharp breath at the mentioning of the guidance counselor. Oh how she would rather be anywhere else but that lunatic's office. The faculty had sought an answer to her streak of miscreancy in the form of psychoanalytical "treatment" by setting up appointments for her to meet with the school guidance counselor. Hazel had already been given the honor of meeting Dr. Marcus Spasades a few days prior after a minor incident involving Hazel's harmless game of "How Many Dipshits Can I Jump Over With This Sweet-Ass Motorcycle?" Nobody knew where or how she ever acquired the motorcycle, or how she managed to get the entire mathlete club to "volunteer" to lay side by side between two ramps, but the important outcome was that: nobody got hurt due to her impressive record-breaking jump and the vehicle was properly commandeered and confiscated. Hazel would have been apt to skipping out on counselor visits as she had done with various classes, but the faculty made it clear that they would withhold her diploma - should she ever graduate, if she did not see Dr. Spasades on scheduled appointments.

She left the laboratory the way she came, and reluctantly arrived in the waiting room in front of the office. Behind the desk was a blonde-haired woman who was humming a happy tune to herself, that was until she saw Hazel. "Oh... you're here," the woman stated, sounding as prosaic and blunt as one could possibly sound. "I'll let him know." Pressing the call button on her desk, the woman leaned in toward the speaker and informed Dr. Spasades of Hazel's arrival. "Good, right on schedule," a voice responded back. "Send her in." The woman then looked back at Hazel. "Dr. Spasades will see you now," she affirmed. "Yeah, yeah, whatever," Hazel dismissed, opening the door to the office. Inside was Dr. Spasades, sitting in a brown leather reclining chair. "I'm so happy you could join me again today, Hazel," he expressed with a sincere smile on his face. "Please, have a seat." Dr. Spasades was not a man in his autumn years but his short, tapered hair was graying, and the nasolabial folds of his face had become quite defined. His voice was smooth and yet a little raspy, with a smoky, buttery inflection to it. He dressed in a sharp, black blazer over a broad dress shirt, and a pair of brown corduroy pants. His office was a simple room, if not almost identical to what one would expect in a counselor's office. The walls and floor may have kept its consistency with the motif of every other standard room in the academy, but in the corner sat a small coffee table on which an iron incense  bowl was placed upon. Though it was currently burned out, the lingering aroma of lilac was still permeating the room. In the other corner was Dr. Spasade's desk, only equipped with a wired pager and a small desktop computer. On the wall directly behind the desk was a large framed photograph depicting a younger Dr. Spasades wearing the same exact outfit he had on now while standing next to a woman with long, wavy hair and whose eyes were covered by a shadow. The photograph was perhaps the strangest decoration in the room for even though the picture taken in black and white, there was color in the form of the woman's contrasting red lips. Everything in the photo was in grayscale, except for her lips.

Music: Contact
Spoiler:

Hazel sat down in the chaise lounge chair opposite to Dr. Spasades and projected a bored and irritated look. "Let's just get this over with, Dr. Space AIDS," she asserted. "It's actually pronounced 'Spuh-saw-dees'," Dr. Spasades corrected with a little laugh. "Let's see here... Miss... Hazel... Christine... Stirling. Hm. Christine. I rather like that name. Do you mind if I refer to you by your middle name?"
"Good God, please don't."
"Well alright then, Hazel. I'd say 'let's get down to business' but I don't really like thinking of this as work. I quite enjoy this profession, you see. Now, last time you were here you ate all the complimentary chocolate turtles and fell asleep for the entire session."
"What? They were complimentary. That means I could have them right?"
"Well yes, but they were more for every-"
"Speakin' of which, you got any more of them? Shit was good stuff."
"No."
"Damn."
"That aside, I was hoping we could make some actual progress today. Now, I get the feeling that you don't want to be here."
"Well fuck, you get a doctorate for your detective skills, too?"
"I certainly don't want to keep you here if you don't want to be."
"Then why not just let me leave? Sure as hell would save us both the trouble."
"Well I can't do that. You see I have to report to Headmaster Gorren on your progress to have him know you're regularly attending these appointments and resolving any... issues you may have that's causing you to act so negatively towards your fellow students and the hardworking faculty here at the academy. I can't just lie and say you've been here if you haven't. They would catch on if you were seen around during your appointments and if your behavior didn't show improvement. Plus... I don't really like being dishonest."
"Ho boy."
"Now it may be a little easier for you if you try not to look at this as some chore or inconvenience. After all, this is for your benefit. Most importantly, it doesn't cost you a single cent and you get a little time off between classes. Most worker unions would kill for this kind of opportunity."
"Lucky me."
"Quite. Now then, I promise you that this will be quite different from what you'd see at a standard psychiatrist. No notes, no theories, no drugs... I'll work with your own pace and we'll take this step by step if need be."
"No drugs? Booooooring."
"Why don't I start by asking what may be bothering you. Are your classes too difficult? Trouble at home?"
"I ain't talkin'."
"That's a pity. I can't help you if you don't tell me what's wrong."
"Maybe I don't wanna talk about it. Guess we'll just be sitting here for a long time."
"Hazel, I don't want to be the reason keeping you from graduating and moving on to the bright future I know you can have. Just give this a try, perhaps you may find yourself a little happier in life when we get through this."
"I'm just having a hard time trying to figure out why the hell anybody would want to be a psychiatrist in the first place. Just what would possess you to sit in a chair and try to pick peoples' brains all day for a living?"
"Well I for one happen to love everyone-"
"Ha! Gay!"
"-And I believe everyone should learn to love themselves. After serving so many years in the military, I just kind of got tired of yelling at people all the time. My commanding officer..."

Dr. Spasades turned and placed a heartfelt gaze upon the framed photograph.

"That's her. During the war she told me about her dreams of helping people come to terms with who they are and become better for it. It really hit home. Inspired me. After the war was over we both attended university and got our degrees to become certified in our fields. I wanted to be a part of this school so I could help kids understand themselves a little better to make their transition into adulthood somewhat easier. Adolescence truly is the most baffling and overwhelming phase for a young mind, after all. I do wonder what my commanding officer is up to, nowadays... probably off in the big city somewhere in an office like mine."
"Ugh. You're puttin' me to sleep."
"Well we could always go back to trying to figure out what makes you so angry."
"Sure, we'll get back on schedule. How about we start at um... how's a quarter past 'not happening' sound?"
"I see... Well, I'd like you to know a few days ago I had a little talk with your mother over the phone-"
"You did what?"
"Nice lady, really. But very busy. I actually had to get by her secretary before I could arrange a call with her. She told me quite a few interesting things - not entirely about you, but some things I believe would help me out here."
"Where are you going with this?"
"Your mother informed me that your family has their very own team of personal chefs that prepare you meals everyday at home. I'm actually envious, it's a luxury I could never hope to dream of on my salary. Your family must be quite wealthy. Anyway, your mother did allow me to have a word with the head chef, Mr. Sergio. A very passionate and yet strict man; I can tell he takes pride in his work. He taught me his own personal spin on a recipe. Speaking of which... it's lunch time isn't it? Pardon me, I will be back shortly."

He then got up from his seat and left the office, returning a few seconds later with a plate filled with seared tuna sushi, and sat back down in his seat, eyeing every detail of it. Hazel's eyes widened in horror.

"That's my..."
"Favorite dish? Why, I had no idea. I made it a few minutes ago before you came in, and I can't wait to eat it. I've hung on to every word of Mr. Sergio's instructions to make sure I had I prepared it to the most exact specifications. Only the highest grade of tuna with the perfect amount of pepper and crushed sesame seeds... a custom seasoning blend, painstakingly marinated with sesame seed oil and coconut oil. I actually purchased my own bamboo rolling mat for this. Well worth it, I'd say."
"Put that away!"
"Oh, Hazel, you're still here? My sincerest apologies, I was just lost in this plate of sushi. It's so very delicate... so very enticing. You haven't eaten yet, have you? Silly question, lunch period has only just begun. Would be a shame if I had to eat every last piece in front of you. Would you care for some?"
"N-No..."

Hazel's stomach grumbled loudly, exposing the lie in a heartbeat. A glint practically sparkled in the corner of Dr. Spasade's eye.

"No? Well okay then. I guess I'll just start-"
"What do you want..."
"What do I want? Why, I have no idea what you're talking about, Hazel. I'm just a simple man enjoying the pleasure of fine cuisine in my cozy office. Who said anything about wanting someth-"
"WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR THE FUCKING SUSHI."
"Oh... Well... I only want what I would hope you would want, and that is for you to be happy, Hazel. Maybe if I understood you better, I could help make that happen. Would you mind... telling me a bit about yourself?"
"...What do you want to know?"
"Why don't we start a little simpler this time. How are your parents? What are they like?"
"I can't fucking stand them."
"Mhm? I actually hear that a lot, but I'm more interested in learning the reason why. They are your parents, Hazel. Why do you have such a dislike for them?"
"Because they're trying to run my life, and I don't mean a damn thing to them."
"I'm sure that can't certainly be the case. They must care about you a lot and only have your best interests for you, even if it their methods may seem a bit harsh at times."
"You wouldn't know... they're fucking scum."
"I see... I think I have a good idea what questions to ask from now on in these sessions. Don't worry, this will just be between us... and the headmaster. But pay that no mind, he only needs to know so that he may help accomodate to any specific needs you may have in regards to necessary precautions of this entire experience."
"Can I have the sushi now?"
"Yes. It's all yours. Feel free to have the entire plate if you wish and you may leave when you are done. I'll inform the headmaster that you have attended today."

Hazel shamelessly snatched the entire dish and devoured it clean, and then stormed out of the office. Dr. Spasades walked over to his desk and hit the button on the wired pager. "Headmaster Gorren. I believe I am off to a tremendous start concerning our situation with Hazel Stirling. Continue to send her regularly as scheduled. By the way... she took my entire lunch. Would you mind sending me something from the cafeteria?"

Making her way to the nearest restroom, Hazel barged in through the door and made sure nobody was around. As soon as she was sure there wasn't a single soul nearby she delivered a swift punch to the mirror, shattering it into thousands of shards. "YOU FUCKING SLUT!" she screamed. "SELLING YOURSELF OUT FOR A FUCKING PLATE OF SUSHI? ARE YOU SERIOUS?! YOU'RE WEAK! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU! That fucking asshole... calling my mother and using that against me? That's dirty pool. He... he won't get me like that again. I'll be prepared, next time... just he fucking wait. I can't let him know... can't let anyone know."

She took a deep breath and walked out into the hall where it looked like a familiar figure was waiting for her.

"Good talk in there?"
"You again? Are you following me? Do I have to fucking scream?"
"Sounds like you already did in there. Nah, this is just one of stops before I head out to tend to other matters. I just thought I'd check up on you. See how you were doing. By the looks of it, I'd say you're pretty dandy."
"Real fuckin' funny. Why don't you do me a favor and fly off the roof like your tape deck?"
"Oh yeah, still kinda miffed you did that by the way, but I'll get over it."
"Ugh, I am not in the mood for this. Just who the hell are you anyway?"
"Good question. Just who are we in this confusing existence we call life? I think about that everyday."
"My God, can you just leave?"
"Yeah. Sure. But we'll be seeing each other again real soon, I'm sure. You hang in there, dollface."

The man waved and walked off, disappearing around the corner. Hazel sat down on a bench and buried her forehead into her palms with a groan.

"This was supposed to be my day off and I have to put up with this shit. I need a fucking drink."

Alice heard a gunshot come from behind her, feeling the wind blow as the bullet sped past her and enter the collection of vines and thorns. She wasn't sure if the plant creature had reacted to the gunshot, but Alice sure would. Was someone shooting at her? She reeled around looking for the source of the gunshot, hearing taunting words of being called noobs and being told to take notes. Normally, such behavior wouldn't have made much of a difference to Alice, but she was just shot at. What kind of person would have the nerve to point a live gun at a person and fire?! She couldn't see the source of the gunshot or the voice that held the gun either, so all she could do was click her teeth and turn towards the plant creature once again.

Unceremoniously brandishing her shield, she charged forth the short distance between herself and the large plant creature until there was a THWACK! of the thick metal hitting the front of the monster. Just like last time, she didn't suspect that it would do much to the thing. Frowning, Alice turned towards the boy she met from earlier, the one she had run into by mistake. "Hey! Are you okay?" Alice didn't really have a way of knowing whether or not the plant monster had done any real damage to him unless he said something.

Conlin is unable to Act or Move.

Green eyes flashed with panic and grew wide as they observed one of the students nearby become enveloped in a desolate quicksand that looked like a portal to purgatory. Conlin was helpless but to stare at the boy as the ground swallowed him, a slow process that was completed before anyone could react. When he finally processed what had happened, his first thought was concern for himself-- what if that happened to him? He was the next logical target, incapable of moving or attempting to escape from any further attacks as was his current situation. It was a wonder he hadn't been the victim this time. If he didn't wrestle free of the vines which ensnared him, and soon, he realized, he was remaining vulnerable in a place where being vulnerable could get you killed in an instant. His legs and arms were tugging and jerking against their reins before he even finished the thought, such was his desperation.

The resounding echo of a sniper rifle made his head snap away from his current activity. After getting a glance at the bullet's victim and hearing the loud voice speaking to them from a distance in the vicinity, Conlin recognized it was help. A small relief, but a relief nonetheless, especially in the odd and dire circumstance Conlin found himself in. He barely noticed the other students as they moved around what had become a battlefield, absorbed with the task of struggling free from his captivity as he was. A question from the girl with the shield grabbed his attention; "Hey! Are you okay?"

Conlin grunted from exertion as he felt the vines give some, thanks to his efforts. "What does it look like?" he barked in response, the frustration of his situation evident in his tone. "I'll live. I think you have more pressing concerns right now," he continued, nodding at the floral enemy. The teenager gritted his teeth as he tried to lean down and rip a cluster of the strangling weeds away from his leg. Anger dripping from his lips, he whispered to himself, "Why the fuck is this happening?"

The Tranquil Rest mote reverbates with serene silence...

Ariel shivered in antici – the first vine struck him quickly followed by the second – pation. The womanly trio that surrounded him seemed to vibrate in reaction to the slight moan he exhaled. Electric blue eyes settled on the plant bitch. "That was nice," he whispered, allowing the trio to swirl around him protectively, "but I think you've forgotten who I am." Once more he caused the vine to shake as the women released yet another horrid cry. Ariel's gaze did not shift. "I'm rarely the submissive one."

A discordant harmony reverberates! Thorny Vine 2 is hit! 5 Abs Damage!

Ariel moves to E5!

Conlin moves to B6 (B8 - B7 - B6).

Conlin waits...


Heaving a breath as he disentangled himself from the vines, at long last, Conlin glanced back and watched as his former restraints shriveled up into the earth. His heart was racing-- he could feel it pounding in his chest, and could feel his limbs trembling with adrenaline and anxiety. Instinct told him loudly to run away, and he had to resist the temptation to simply follow its command, without really knowing why he hesitated. Not a minute before, he had seen what this creature could do, and for all he knew, there was nothing stopping it from doing the same to him. That could be the end of his life, determined in an instant. He didn't feel guilty for being scared; it was his life, for fuck's sake! How could he even entertain a thought contrary to running away? He'd have to be an idiot; a fool so great that he deserved to die.

He told himself this, but didn't actually listen. His feet were concreted to the ground, unable to carry out the impulse to flee, but he didn't know why. Another sniper round pierced the battlefield, and the floral abomination assaulted one of his fellow students, and he didn't know why. The girl with the shield was still there in the thick of the fight, and the other boy was still in his early grave, and Conlin didn't know why. The dark-haired teenager remained where he was, in the midst of a battle he hadn't known was possible, risking his entire life each second he lingered there, and he couldn't fathom why. He couldn't bring himself to understand his own reasoning, but found himself walking forward regardless.

A violent shiver swept across his body as he advanced toward their foe ever so cautiously, but his eyes and body language expressed something unbeknownst to his conscious mind. Dwelling in his movements, hesitant but decisive as they were, and in his gaze, more daring and involved than he had ever let it be, was grim curiosity. A hope the soul reluctantly allowed itself, to be shown a reality where things were more controllable-- to be given capabilities that made tailoring fate and destiny possible. The waking mind would not let itself be fooled into believing the world was quite so goodly as this, but the soul ventured to dream. And caught between them was Conlin.

Alice winced when another shot was fired towards the plant monster. She could feel the heat of the round as it whizzed by her head. Just who was this person that was shooting at her? While thankful for the assistance being provided to them, if the mysterious markswoman had misaimed by just a few feet, she could be lying on the ground dead. Letting out a small growl of irritation, Alice whipped around again to try and find the source of the shots, but to no avail. "Where is that coming from?!" It was only then that Alice realized that there were others in this bloody battle than herself and the boy she had run into earlier. A ways away from the main beast, Alice had forgotten that there was another feminine-looking student clad in what seemed to be... spectral women? "Whoa... That's so pretty..." As Alice looked on at the feminine student clothed in that otherworldly light, she couldn't be grasped to look away from it. So she wasn't the only one that had suddenly gotten control of something weird out of the middle of nowhere. Unlike her shield though, this student's power actually seemed like something formidable... as if she was just completely useless.

She shook her head. This wasn't the time to be thinking about that sort of thing. Right now, there were more important matters to be dealing with, and most importantly making sure that she got out alive, as well as the other two students that were with her. Maybe she didn't know how to effectively wield something like a shield, but she would damn well try before giving up and dying. After what seemed to be an eternity, Laptop Boy had finally deigned to give her an answer. "What does it look like? I'll live. I think you have more pressing concerns right now." What in the world kind of attitude was that to have in the middle of a life or death situation? Geez, this guy was just rude.

"Hmph! See if I give a crap about how you're doing anymore. Try and be nice to someone and this is the thanks I get. Ungrateful little..." No. This boy wasn't worth getting upset over. There were more important things to be dealing with here. "Look, just stand behind me Laptop Boy. I'll make sure you don't get hurt." Bringing her shield protectively in front of her, Alice quickly moved back in front of the large plant monster to intercept anything that might hurt her charge. "If you want to hurt Laptop Boy, you've got to get through me first!" A fierce look glowed in her eyes as a slim, golden tether formed between Alice's core and Laptop Boy's. She wouldn't let anything get past her, no matter what it took. Her composure was degrading as the tether took form, but as long as no one else got hurt, that's all that mattered.

"FINALLY, the bullet that'll make it bite the dust!" Deetra shouted as she lined up her final shot. With the mere pulling of a trigger and the release of a bullet that would not miss, the plant creature gave off a horrible screech before disintegrating into nothingness along with the little thorny vines that had accompanied it that Deetra knew were a part of the main creature itself.

"Oh there is nothing beautiful about a Garden Beauty."

FINALLY, it was safe to get out of the tree. Deetra Lowell dropped down from a high branch of a pretty tall tree in the garden, her sniper rifle disappearing from sight as she landed. Color returned to the world in that instant. Deetra never cared for Huuntz's Monochrome all that much except for the fact that it was useful as hell. Deetra sauntered over to the newbies who looked rather shaken up from the events, granted who wouldn't be after seeing that shit?! Deetra remembered fondly of her first encounter with a Rietzen and how she just loosed round after round until the thing was Swiss cheese. Guess not everyone had it as easy as she did.

Deetra came to a stop near the noobs and sized them up, taking off her bandana to reveal a mess of curly black hair that went to her shoulders. "Hey fresh meat! Name's Deetra and it looks like you guys went through some SHIET, like DAMN. Wannut some otha guy with ya? Some oriental like fella that looked like he could Bruce Lee a motha fucka? I musta missed that shit when I was eatin' some chocolate."

* * *

In the main administrative building on the top floor of a three-story building was an office that spanned just about the entirety of the floor. Inside this office sat a large man in a fairly large desk chair made of wood with red velvet cushioning on the back, seat, and armrests. The mighty oak desk in front of him was covered in paperwork burying a large planning calendar. A white porcelain mug filled with steaming coffee, black naturally, sat to the side next to an organizer for paperwork, each shelf labeled with a different time of form that was supposed to go in it. On the mug was printed "Best Headmaster."

The office itself was marble like the rest of the majority of the school. The walls were covered in plaques and certificates, degrees and awards of many natures. Several large weapons could be found on display as well next to cabinet cases with more trophies, awards, and photos. There was plenty of memorabilia from the large man's past in this room--he was a sucker for reminiscing, and oh how peaceful the old days were.

Before the large desk were two smaller chairs that looked just as comfortable as the man's desk chair. They were polished oak chairs with charming round red cushions on them--seats for his guests. They were empty now, but an alert came from a speaker resting on the corner of his desk with a few buttons attached. The voice of Dr. Spasades came over detailing the progress on recently recruited Hazel Stirling.

The man placed a large finger on a green, unlabeled button allowing a heavy deep voice to chuckle out of the speaker on Dr. Spasades's end. "It is unfortunate to hear, Dr. Spasades. Congrats on the great start; Hazel Stirling is a tough customer, I'm sure I don't have to tell you," a gruff warm response came soon after the chuckle. "I'll have some food sent to you immediately, Dr. Spasades. Keep up the great work."

* * *

"Ooo it's Hazel Stirling! Yikes, looking a little worse for wear it seems," a cheerful voice sounded from not too far away from the bench on which Hazel had sat. The girl approached with a concerned look on her face, wearing a standard school uniform with surprisingly few alterations save for a few non-standard buttons on her jacket showing her love for art. She also wore a maroon beret upon her head, covering most of her short pixie cut orange hair. Her white face was dotted with freckles, and vibrant blue eyes gazed at Hazel. The girl was short, at least quite a few inches shorter than Hazel.

"Oh, oh apologies! Gwen Glaslen, at your service! Fellow Rontzelle operative and rising star artist," Gwen introduced herself. She knew Hazel's reputation was...well, she knew what it was, but she was unfazed at the moment. Her operative status would be enough to save her from any...violent consequences of engaging this girl.

"I think I found you at the perfect time! You look a little down; I have an interesting proposition for one such as yourself," Gwen continued in a hushed voice. "It's a little...uncouth, if you will. Will you hear me out?"

Ariel exhaled calmly as the monochrome hues faded from existence along with the trio of ethereal figures that surrounded him. He blinked. "That was certainly... odd." Despite the plant bitch's disappearance and the image of his power fading, he could still feel the presence. Thorny vines remained to mark their foe's existence and the power... he could feel it radiating inside of him – airy tunes and soft melodies. Had it not bored him so he would have thought it to be quite beautiful.

"Hey fresh meat! Name's Deetra and it looks like you guys went through some SHIET, like DAMN. Wannut some otha guy with ya? Some oriental like fella that looked like he could Bruce Lee a motha fucka? I musta missed that shit when I was eatin' some chocolate."

Electric blue locked onto their savior's dark mirror-like eyes. His lips twitched downward as she mentioned his former target. The boy had been eliminated. Such a shame. Especially since it left Ariel with no one else to play with! Perhaps this Deetra could prove to be entertaining for awhile. Smoothing out the microscopic frown that formed on his face, the stoic boy moved over to the girl and offered her a smile. His eyes sparkled in the light. "My name is Ariel. Ariel Tuvlann. Thank you for the assistance," the tone of his voice crisp and his words well-enunciated. "Your aim is impeccable. I suppose I'm quite lucky to have you on my side." He paused a moment and offered her his hand. "Perhaps you could stay there? I always seem to find myself in sticky situations."

"Fucking hell why is everyone trying to talk to me today? Ughhhhhhh," the young pariah of the school groaned. The idea of putting up with this on a daily basis was becoming anathema to Hazel. For a day off, Hazel never seemed to be busier, as where she could have been off wreaking havoc among innocents in her general vicinity, she instead had to deal with Dr. Space AIDS and the weirdo whose tape deck she hurled. Now there was this - some girl who was so pale she must have used flour for makeup.

The beret she wore and the buttons pinned on her jacket were mistaken for different attire by Hazel. "Unless you're giving Thin Mints for free, I'm not interested in your Goddamn Girl Scout cookies," she sassed. Despite being irritated for the majority of the day, Hazel's violent aggression wasn't on the hair trigger it normally was; being defeated by Dr. Spasades had surely made a lasting impact. Were this any other day, the delinquent girl would have probably made this Gwen person a target for her daily terrorizing, but she just wasn't feeling it right now. At most she could only find it in her to muster a simple "fuck off" where it would need to be applied.

Alice was panting from exhaustion as she released her hold of the shield. Instead of clanging on the ground, though, it seemed to dissipate into thin air, not to be seen. Casting the tether had taken a toll out of her and she was trying to recover from the amount of energy that she had spent. If this Deetra woman hadn't come to their rescue at the time she had, they probably would have never been able to emerge victorious. Color was seeping back into the world and her apprehension from the battle before was also similarly seeping away, and it was being replaced with tiredness. Repositioning herself and shifting her weight, Alice sized Deetra up, trying to see what exactly had been able to save them from this "sticky situation" as the effeminate boy named Ariel had mentioned.

She hadn't even noticed that Ariel and this other person had also been in this battle; her, Laptop Boy, and the giant plant monster had been the focus on her world. Was it heartless to admit that? Perhaps, but she was more focused on keeping herself and that boy alive. It was the self-preservation instinct acting at its finest. Alice looked between Ariel, Laptop Boy, and Deetra. This was such an odd occurrence. Hopefully there wouldn't be more situations with a lack of color and lots of monsters. Battling wasn't something that she was comfortable with, though as she had demonstrated, it was definitely possible to do.

"I'm sorry, I didn't even know that you and someone else were here other than myself and Laptop Boy over there." Alice casually motioned over towards the boy that she had protected during the battle, looking back towards Ariel. "It's nice to meet you Ariel," Alice looked towards Deetra, struggling not to fall from exhaustion, "and you as well, Deetra. Thank you for coming to our rescue. I don't know what I could have done without you."

It all seemed to end just as he had begun feeling ready to begin. In one moment, the girl with the shield had advanced towards the floral abomination while shouting back at him to stand behind her. A strange, ethereal tether formed between them then, marking another phenomena that Conlin couldn't explain. In the next moment, a final sniper round rang out, declaring the monster dead and their conflict over. Before Conlin could even process it, the colors in the environment returned, and the girl's shield was gone, as well as the other boy's kindred spirits. An inexplicable sense of disappointment had overcome Conlin then; he hadn't been able to do anything. Whether this was truly reality or all merely a dream, in that span of time he had had access to a power. And he had failed to take advantage of it. Did that mean he didn't really deserve it in the first place?

He couldn't keep up with any of it. The marksman who had assisted them-- perhaps even saved their lives-- came down from her perch and introduced herself, but Conlin could barely bring himself to really notice this. His mind was too busy trying to answer questions, and running itself in circles each time it had to decide it didn't have any answers. The auburn-haired boy reciprocated the black girl's greeting, but it just sent more questions spiraling into Conlin's consciousness; how could he behave so casually? Was everyone else here used to stuff like this? Did he deserve his power? When the other girl spoke up, Conlin couldn't help but start thinking about her, too. Why did she try and protect him? Were they connected somehow?

All too much. He couldn't actually feel anything. Hands shoved in pockets, his feet began moving without his brain knowing. Right past the others, and around the rows of shrubbery, and beneath the brilliant sky, he walked listlessly. It seemed he was heading for the other side of the gardens; his legs were attempting to carry him to his next scheduled class, and right back into the mundane mechanisms of the world.
