Jason's hoarde of angry nurses

Characters: You. Yes, you!
Setting: December 16th through 21st, all the places!
Format: Any!
Summary: Plague doctor panic shenanigans for the Into An Abyss event, day two and onwards until the pesky creatures stop annoying everyone. Or in the case of non-orange-collared people, maiming them.
Warnings: Monsters! Battles! Death! Orange collar badassery! The Tower! Too much to handle!!

[After a day of putting things into the strange portal on floor twenty-three, something finally comes out. Many somethings. And it seems they are not satisfied with only the stray finger to nibble on...]

PLAGUE DOCTOR BEHAVIOR GUIDELINES

- Plague doctors use physical attacks, ripping and tearing their victims to pieces with hands and teeth. They travel very quickly and, when slipping in and out of reality, can seem to teleport from one spot to the next unpredictably.
- Characters whose collars are yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet will be attacked if the plague doctors notice them.
- Characters whose collars are yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet cannot harm the plague doctors. They must hide or run.
- Plague doctors become more powerful the closer to violet the character they are attacking is. A plague doctor attacking a character with a yellow collar will be weaker than the same one attacking a character with an indigo collar.
- Characters whose collars are orange will be completely ignored by the plague doctors unless the character directly attacks one.
- Characters whose collars are orange are capable of injuring and killing plague doctors, provided the means by which they attack are entirely mundane. They cannot receive enchanted items from other characters, for example.
- Plague doctors can only be killed by completely destroying the head. It has to be crushed into pieces.
- Plague doctors will carry any retrieval unit they notice into the rift they came from.

Label the date/time/location in the header, basic mingle stuff. DO NOT forward-date anything to Wednesday the 18th or later until further notice. Edit: Open from the 16th through to the 21st! Go nuts!

16th, Floor 40, Closed to Reno

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2013-12-17 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
[She'd been trying to get new clothes. They didn't have much more time, and supplies were running low. She'd tried storing some in floor 40 initially, but the boxes had moved and she'd - frustratingly - lost track of them. But with supplies the way they were, she really needed to find them again.

Only that hasn't gone quite according to plan either.

Thankfully she has her real sword in hand, so when the first plague doctor attacks (obviously some sort of Jasonspawn, what else could it be?), she does run, a bit, but no more than she needs to get some room to maneuver. From there she lunges at it, ready to bring her sword down in what would be a devastating chopping strike...

Except her sword doesn't do anything. It's like hitting a wall. A wall that lashes back ferociously, and she's only partially able to dodge it. The damage is - so far superficial - and she tries again, until it's clear her attacks just aren't doing anything.

Panicking slightly now, Xion turns to run, but the creature warps in and out of reality, so wherever she goes, it's there, precise as Jason himself is, landing exactly where it needs to be. And sure enough, eventually it lands in just the right spot to tear into her ferociously with its claws and Xion yells, stumbling and crashing back into a wall of boxes. It wobbles ominously, but doesn't fall. Yet. The bigger problem is the plague doctor itself as it descends for another set of furious blows, maybe even a kill. Xion's stunned somewhat. Not enough to prevent movement but too much to really escape.]

[Just before it gets to her, a dark whirling blur launches itself at the plague doctor, a steel toed shoe connecting with the creature's head. Both the figure and the plague go down, sprawling on the floor. Reno rises back to his feet in a flash, followed closely by his opponent, but he's not uninjured. Blood tricked down a few gash marks where the thing's claws had come up to protect itself, but he seemed all right otherwise.]

Xion! Downstairs! Violets can't hurt 'em!

[The order is barked and short, a twinge of pain making it sharper than it needed to be. Focusing his attention on the plague doctor, he jumped into action again, launching a flurry of kicks, all aimed at its head.

Patrols were his thing since the doctors had started coming through. There weren't enough people with orange collars to cover the points that needed protection, much less the whole Tower. It's pure luck he had been passing this floor on his way down again, when he heard the crashing... and just in time, too.]

[When the power goes out on the first day, Archer spends a good while grumbling about the lack of electronics before settling into hunting. The first day is spent idly working with the monster parts he had previously gathered, as it felt strange to be particularly inactive in the cold weather.

The second day, he's off to look for Shinji. With the power out, there was no doubt in his mind that his little Master would be bored and desiring company.

...Rather unfortunately, he's bound to run into some trouble along the way.]

Run. Now.

[Without the usual distractions of the terminals and the media room available, Shinji has holed himself up in the library on Floor 19. He isn't actually reading, though; rather, without any distractions to get in the way now, he has found a corner to seclude himself in and practiced his amateur magecraft with such attention and doggedness that his head is starting to hurt. At least it helps him feel warmer (though the new, requested set of clothes he received from Zo undoubtedly helps, too).]

[In any case, he's so focused on his task that he's neglecting to pay as much attention to his surroundings as he probably should.]

oathshackledbird: Hurt (Hurt)

[Warnings for violence and character death] 12/16-Closed Prompt, 12/17-Open Prompt

[personal profile] oathshackledbird 2013-12-17 04:24 am (UTC)(link)
Closed: 12/16, Mid-Morning-the stairwells near floor 23 [Warnings for violence, blood, and character death.]:

It is a happy problem to have. When Diarmuid had gathered up the weapons for distribution, he had left a few of his harder to reach and out of the way caches just in case something went wrong. Now, he is returning from gathering up the weapons from a few of those caches. Not because something went wrong, but because so many people stopped by to pick something up. Even with several people donating to his collection, the pile had been running low by morning. That is why, when Ryoji stopped by, he had asked his son to watch over things while he ran out to gather more. There are only so many he can carry at once, but at least with his speed, multiple trips won't take too long.

Diarmuid is passing by Floor 23 when a movement in the stairwell catches his eye. He dodges, but whatever the creature is, it is extremely fast and Diarmuid is unable to fully avoid the blow. The blow itself is frighteningly strong--strong enough to shatter the bones in his arm and send him tumbling head-over-heels down at least one floor worth of stairs, weapons flying out of his arms to scatter and crash down the stairs around him.

His tumble is stopped abruptly by a wall? A door? Diarmuid's head cracks against whatever it is hard enough that he can't tell. In fact, it is only years of battle trained instinct that allows him to have enough presence of mind to summon his spear and raise it to block the next blow.

The blow hits his trusted spear so hard that the weapon cracks from end to end and his one remaining arm almost gives out. For a moment, all Diarmuid can do is stare at the damage. Never before has he seen the weapon--a weapon that was suppose to only be able to be destroyed by his own hand--so damaged. His eyes finally shift to the creature attacking him when it makes a strange hissing noise, and again, he finds himself overwhelmed by shock.

"Jason?"

But no. It cannot be. Can it? With all that is going on, why would Jason be here and attacking him of all people?

However, Diarmuid doesn't have much time to question what is going on because the creature takes a swing at him with the hand that isn't being blocked by his spear. With his other arm already broken, Diarmuid has no choice but to dodge the blow. Letting it connect with anything is not going to be a good idea and that thought is just reinforced when the creature's fist connects with the ground where Diarmuid was a moment earlier and leaves a crater in its wake.

Diarmuid swears under his breath as he realizes there is no way he is going to be able to fight this thing alone. That leaves him just one other option. Running. Thankfully, running is something he does pretty well.

His spear disappears out of his hand, and he turns taking off down the stairs. However, he has not gone very far when a sudden piercing pain stabs through his chest bringing him to a halt with a muffled cry. Diarmuid looks down in shock to see that a hand in buried deep in his chest, fingers wrapped around his heart. The hand, for a moment, seems to have nothing attached to it, though, seconds later, space twists and the rest of the creature steps out to look at him...grinning.

If a creature that looks so much like a plague doctor can grin that is.

"Again?" The word is soft, spoken with acceptance and complete knowledge of where this is going. Really, it would be nice if Diarmuid could go a month in this place without his heart being torn out or crushed in some way.

There is no response from the creature. It just stands there, staring unblinkingly at him for several seconds. Then, with a single motion, crushes Diarmuid's heart and rips it from his chest. It holds the mangled organ in its hand, blankly gazing at it as Diarmuid's body collapses to the staircase. Finally, it drops it on top of the Servant's bloody and still form, before turning and disappearing into a tear in space.

Nothing left of interest here...


Open: 12/17, Mid-Morning on, Room 4-16, the Infirmary, or wherever:

Room 4-16:

Diarmuid's body jerks as he wakes. At least, it jerks as much as a body trapped by sleep paralysis can. It's a delayed reaction to his death, and he falls still afterward, brain slowly starting to work again. For once, Diarmuid can say he's not really too upset about his death, since there wasn't much he could have done to stop it. Whatever that thing was, it was strong and it had caught him off guard. He supposes that is only to be expected from something that was probably one of Jason's minions. Not the Administrator himself, Diarmuid realizes in hindsight. After all, the Glamour Systems were working at the time of the attack and the creature had looked like Xion said Jason did with the Glamour down.

A soft sound pulls Diarmuid from his thoughts. It's hard to tell who it is, since he can't move and for a moment, fear passes over him. What if it's another one of those creatures?

The Infirmary and elsewhere in the Tower:

He's looking for his brother. He's looking for his son. He's looking for his partner. He's looking for anyone he calls friend. Diarmuid has a lot of people to try and find to make sure they too haven't fallen prey to the creatures that are roaming around--that they were luckier than he was.

At least now his puppy dog ears and tail are gone, but when it comes down to it that is really cold comfort with everything else that is going on...

infirmary

[personal profile] fionnuisce 2013-12-17 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
Waver knew better than to try his luck against ungodly horrors presumably from the undefined and indescribable rend in reality. He hadn't slept since they appeared, having been all but chased to the infirmary and electing to stay there, thank you very much. He'd need to talk to Aria soon enough anyway; the magus just hoped all this would quiet down before then.

But at any rate, he wasn't so stupid as to run off and get himself killed. Although the thought had briefly been an enticing one, when his Command Spells burned off of his hand the day before with a sharp jolt of shock and adrenaline. That only meant one thing, and he'd cursed his own cowardice vividly. So much for doing everything together...he'd just run off to hide somewhere safe while his partner was killed by those things. How pathetic.

The morning of the seventeenth found Waver wearing repaired sunglasses, sitting on the floor with his back to the wall and knees pulled to his chest, head resting on folded arms. By all appearances the ponytailed lecturer's body had finally given up and fallen into a light sleep out of protest.

[The soft sound is no monster. Instead, it's Lancer doing his best to hold back from crying.]

[After attending the meeting with the Jasonbusters, he had gone to look for his brother. He wants to tell Diarmuid of the meeting and of how he wanted a chance to help attack Jason. And he wanted to invited Diarmuid along, so they could fight alongside each other again. Besides, it's his job to help his brother pass out the weapons.]

[He goes from floor to floor, looking for Diarmuid...until he finds his brother's corpse on the staircase.]

[It felt like someone had impaled through the heart. It wass all he can do to grit his teeth and refuse to scream. His brother was dead.]

[His brother was dead because he had been too distracted to help. Again.]

[He knew that Diarmuid would want him to continue doing his duty over wasting time seeing to the corpse. After all, death was not permanent. But he still carried the body up into the meadow and places Diarmuid lying on his back, folding his brother's hands over the hole in his chest. He didn't want to leave Diarmuid lying over the stairs like some discarded rag. While he couldn't fulfill his duty to stay with Diarmuid, he could give Diarmuid some sort of dignity in death.]

[After that, he had rushed off to see to his duty of distributing weapons and checking up on people again. The day had passed like a blur.]

[At the morning of the next day, he had rushed into his room. He doesn't want to risk leaving Diarmuid alone and paralyzed while the plague doctors were still outside.]

[And now that Diarmuid was back, he was almost ready to cry in relief.]


Hey, Bro. You're back.

[He reaches to grab Diarmuid's hand. Any teasing would wait for when his brother could move again.]

[Ryoji had been one of the lucky ones who had been out of the way of the monsters when they appeared. Working with Xion to distribute the clothes and weapons had kept him busy, and so far, he hadn't even seen one.

He smiles when he spots Diarmuid, but his happy greeting dies on his lips. He doesn't even need that uncomfortable feeling in his gut from the aura around Diarmuid to know that he died recently. The disappearance of the ears and tail say enough.

He hurries forward and hugs his adoptive father, muttering into his shoulder.]


I'm sorry I couldn't protect you...

The 17th, in the Infirmary!

[personal profile] gradosfinest 2013-12-19 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
[This is somewhat brutal. Standing guard over the infirmary and nearby floors has proven itself to be an exhausting job, the bitter cold and occasional fights both doing plenty to try and wear her down. She's tired, sore, and cold, kneeling by the entrance to the infirmary with her cloak pulled around her tightly.

Despite that, the fire in her eyes doesn't appear to have diminished in the slightest, her attention as sharp as ever. It's going to take far more than conditions like this to bring down a full fledged knight, and her determination hasn't wavered for a second. That said, when she catches sight of Diarmuid her expression changes to a mix of surprise and relief, having not seen him around much of yesterday. It doesn't take her more than a second to push herself to her feet, managing a smile despite... everything, really.

The lack of ears or a tail does not go unnoticed.]

16th, Stairwells up to Floor 23 and then back to Infirmary (Part 1/2)

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2013-12-17 08:21 am (UTC)(link)
[It's later in the morning, after the meeting in the Cafeteria that Sephiroth begins the long climb back to-

Well he figures to get back to the Dormitories at the top of the Tower but who knows if there might be something to catch his interest on route.

21...22...23-

There is movement to the side of him, out towards the growing rift on Floor 23. Sephiroth pauses for a beat before turning to ascend the next set of stairs. Only the plague doctor that's spotted him seems to have other ideas. He's taken only two steps when hands grab around the top of his shoulder armor and he's pulled - flipping, falling backwards down onto that landing for Floor 23. It knocks the breath out of him with the speed of it but suddenly that's the least of his troubles.

He moves to block with his arm the swiftly incoming hand that intends to claw at his face, only to then get the first look at the head of a plague doctor as it comes in to bite at that arm. Teeth pass through leather and tear into flesh; Sephiroth grunts and yanks his arm back away from him, to detach the monster, gaining enough room to get back to his feet quickly.

There is no hanging around, more of them are coming out of that rift.

Masamune instantly in hand he lands his first powerful strike - only to have the lunge of the monster still carry on as if he had breathed on it. Sephiroth is knocked back against the wall as the barrage of teeth and hands continues. His sword pinned between them. Quickly the monster makes it's marks across a cheek, before narrowing in on Sephiroth's only exposed area - rending through a forearm as well as it comes up to try and interfere.

Luckily, he gets a knee up and in, pushing with all of the telekinetic might he can muster to get the creature away. Bowling it into two more that linger in the doorway. He's down the stairs the next instant, feeling the whoosh of near contact brushing past his head again - not stopping to look back all the way to the Infirmary; suitably pissed that his attacks did nothing. Furthermore, the way it flitted in and out of reality itself made it impossible to even plan an attack - or a defense.

Wounds burn at rended skin as he makes it to the 2nd Floor, sprinting with all his superhuman momentum towards the Infirmary. Who knows how many of them thought to pursue him]

neverbeamemory: (Pondering)

16th, Infirmary (Part 2/2)

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2013-12-17 01:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[Sephiroth enters the Infirmary and draws himself up as he looks around. The slashes and bites he's sustained are by no means life-threatening, especially having been given the time to stop bleeding while he fled from those creatures. Scratches to his face and chest mostly, with a section of leather coat ripped at with teeth at his forearm.

He goes directly for the nearest wash-basin, peeling off leather gloves, starting to unclip his armor, sliding his small orc-acquired sword and it's sheath off his back as well and putting it all on the side. Meticulously cleaning himself up of any blood that already hadn't stopped on it's own, before taking a closer stock of the injuries sustained; shrugging his injured arm out of the leather jacket, leaving the rest to hang behind him, inspecting that bite wound closely.

Sure he could heal them in less than a thought, but giving anything deeper than a light scratch a once-over with a disinfectant won't hurt. Carefully observing the vast amount of chipped units milling around and staying out of their way as much as possible Sephiroth goes in search of the necessary alcohol wipes he's found here before.

While he's here he may as well try to get to the bottom of all of it as well.]

myblueskies: (is it the only way...)

[personal profile] myblueskies 2013-12-17 10:09 am (UTC)(link)
The first time Romeo had seen the doctor monsters he had taken out his knife, expecting to be attacked and to have to fight. But they had went right past him, like they didn't see him.

Later in the day he saw them attacking someone, the person escaped by the time Romeo got to them but again the monsters ignored him.

So he went around knife in hand, because maybe they couldn't see him, but if they attacked people he had to help them, and if they couldn't see him that would be an advantage, he could attack them so the other people could escape.

[personal profile] provenworth 2013-12-20 02:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Between stints of being security for the infirmary, Elena walks the halls of the floors above looking for anybody who might be in need of assistance getting away from the numerous plague doctors. Like, well, the little lad walking around with a knife in his hand and, thankfully, being just as ignored as she was.

Her appearance isn't one she'd normally use when meeting somebody for the first time, shirt and skirt splattered with blood and other bits she didn't care to give much thought to, but she had at least used part of her sleeve that was clean to wipe her face clean.

"Its dangerous to be walking around alone."

She's not entirely chastising, but there is some concern behind her words. The boy was small and young and certainly should not be wandering the halls by himself.

it was!

16th, Infirmary + Any nearby floors!

[personal profile] gradosfinest 2013-12-17 10:23 am (UTC)(link)
[Amelia had been starting to wonder when everything was going to go to hell, and the rift on the 23rd floor finally opening wide enough for whatever was on the other side to come through did not disappoint. These... "Plague Doctors", for lack of anything else to call them (A fitting name given who they seemed to be connected to, she thought) weren't like the other monsters they'd faced until now, and there was a fairly pressing need to create SOME kind of safe haven.

Looked like the retrieval units had already settled on the infirmary, which was as good a place as any. It's strange really, they'd spent so long trying to avoid them and now here they were protecting them.

So that was what she was doing, the young knight standing at attention in the infirmary and keeping her eyes open. Being as she had an orange collar, that made her one of the few in the Tower capable of actually hurting these things but that still wouldn't make a direct fight with one easy, and she was clearly on edge. Sometimes she's actually inside of it, looking around at something or another, checking on people to see if they're alright, and sometimes she's standing outside of it, watching the staircase intently for any signs of incoming trouble.

But if you're lucky you might run into her on one of the nearby floors as well. While her orders were to watch the infirmary, she couldn't help but worry slightly about those near it as well and every so often she wanders up or down the stairs, either checking the cafeteria below or giving one of the floors above the Infirmary a quick glance. She's never gone very long, not feeling comfortable leaving it for more than a short period, but it simply seems prudent to occasionally peek into nearby floors as well, make sure nobody is in trouble nearby.]

[Running between floors, Mon/Tues]

[Someone's got to keep the group in the infirmary fed, which means going up and down quite a few stairs - the run to the cafeteria, only a floor below, isn't so bad, but trying to get up the stairs to the other kitchen where the month's stash of hunted meat is is hell with a violet collar.

Like an idiot, Asch is doing it anyway. Chances are that you'll find him in the industrial kitchen, stuffing a pillowcase full of carefully wrapped, smoked meats, or else on the stairway surrounding the 23rd floor, preparing for the mad dash past the nest of plague doctors.]


[Infirmary, Mon&Tues]

[But he does tend to make it back okay, one way or another, mostly in one piece except for the lacerations in his cloak. If you're hungry, this is the redhead you're looking for - the chunks of meat, a break from the monotony of nutrition bars, go to anyone who asks for one. Asch makes it a point to pass some off into the hands of the chipped collar units that are in there with the residents as well.

This continues as a pattern throughout the first two days, each time until the pillowcase full of food is empty, and then it's time to get ready for another run. He doesn't really seem willing to let himself stop.]


[Infirmary, Wednesday afternoon]

[But on Wednesday, all that running around has finally caught up with him. Someone with keen eyes might notice Asch sitting, wedged into the space between the wall and an infirmary bed, his arms propped on the edge of the mattress and a pillow and his head stacked on top of that. It can't be very comfortable, but that doesn't seem to have stopped him; he's hard asleep, although it probably won't take much more than a nudge to get him up and moving again.

Dare to disturb him?]

*Asch isn't the only idiot here. It was all the way up to the dorms for them this time for Enoch's large store of nutrition bars, and it was certainly a game of stealth, to avoid the attention of the plague doctors.*

altitonant_emperor: everything happens so much (♔ was that a five-headed dragon)

16th-17th, open to around the Tower

[personal profile] altitonant_emperor 2013-12-20 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
[ When word got around about the abnormal rip in the fabric of reality and later on, about people dropping various things into it, Hidetoshi didn't fault them for their curiosity and/or recklessness in disregarding their own safety; but that didn't mean he overly approved of encouraging or poking whatever horrible event was bound to be born out of that portal.

So when he comes across his first plague doctor in the hallways, his knee-jerk reaction is to stop dead in his tracks, balancing on the balls of his feet, knives at the read, prepared to start dodging whatever attack this new Jasonspawn (
he remembered the information shared at the meeting, including Jason's true appearance. The face of a plague doctor's mask and strangely human eyes. He doubted coincidences like this were involved now.) abomination would unleash. Claws, syringes, poisons, teeth, beak, how would it attack him?

It simply warps out of reality, disappearing.

He whips his head around wildly, searching for its next location. It re-appears... Down the hallway, displaying no interest in him. And then again. It leaves. Like... It hadn't even noticed Hidetoshi existed.

The teenager is left staring in disbelief after it, feeling the sickly cold of fear trickling down his back. Why had it ignored him?
]

The next day:
[ His second encounters with the creatures around the Tower will not likely end so well. but whatever yolo ]

[Guarding the infirmary, while at the top of her list of priorities, could get boring very easily. And, given the fact that it was a well-protected area, Elena felt comfortable in taking trips up the various floors of the Tower to assist those who either were in trouble or needed an escort back to the infirmary.

So Elena can be found wandering the halls, taking out plague doctors whenever she comes across them, patrolling the Tower. Ever vigilant. Ever watchful.]

December 17, around the tower

[personal profile] wegotlucky 2013-12-21 02:09 am (UTC)(link)
[A day was all that it had taken for Neal to learn that he could damage the plague doctors. He had his sword outside of its sheathe at all time, clinging tightly to the hilt. If they were possible to kill, the man hadn't learned how to do that yet. But slicing them up seemed to slow them down enough that he could get someone out of dodge if he needed to.

His bow and arrows were also attached to his back, but the arrows were too few to use them often right now.

For now, though, he would take advantage of the fact that the monsters were ignoring him as he scouted for anyone who looked to be in trouble. Friend or foe, Neal was going to help them.]
sageprincess: (Fighting further)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-12-21 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[He won't need to go far to find a certain damsel in moderate distress.

Zelda figured out very quickly that she was utterly useless against Jason's minions, and really, she should have stayed in the safety of the infirmary. But sitting still has never been in her nature, especially in crisis situations, and eventually her frustration got the better of her.

The workshop wasn't that far away, and those in the infirmary could use the extra cloth to keep warm. Her training in evasion comes in handy, and she almost makes it back without having to engage one of the doctors directly. Unfortunately, one of the creatures trying to get into the infirmary forced her off the stairs into the library, where she now takes cover behind one of the many bookshelves, bundle of fabric in hand.

Neal will likely notice the plague doctor's predatory stalking before he sees Zelda herself, though the book she throws in an attempt to lead it in another direction might hint as to her location.]

frilliance: (Oh fuck it's Oldbag again)

December 16th, cafeteria

[personal profile] frilliance 2013-12-21 11:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[Edgeworth was sitting in the cafeteria when he suddenly spotted not one but four plague doctors leaving the kitchen and coming towards him!

Edgeworth was not sure what these things were but they looked menacing. Could he fight them? Maybe, but he would rather avoid it if he could. If they caught up with him, he could defend himself.

So, Edgeworth stood up and turned towards the stairs. However, as he did so, he found five more of these plague doctors at the front of the staircase, blocking his way!

God, maybe he would have to defend himself after all. Edgeworth had no intention of killing any human or anybody who looked and acted like one. However, if he could drive them off...

He picked up his spear, holding it in front of him as if to ward off the monsters, and tried to walk backwards. Unfortunately, he ended up with his back to the wall. Thinking that he had possibly no escape at the moment, Edgeworth prepared himself....

However, to the prosecutor's shock and utter confusion, both groups of plague doctors suddenly walked past him, seemingly avoiding him completely - one group to the kitchen and the other to the staircase.

What was going on?]

A || Hiding from Plague Doctor || Everywhere
[ Plotting for whenever Jason would show up was no easy thing; gathering people willing to assist him was even less easy, especially given his reputation. But something needed to be done and it was the golden ocasion to kill the mad scientist and finally get closer to his purpose to take over this cursed tower.

... And eventually all related worlds.

But these plague doctors certainly weren't helping any. He had tried attacking them, to no avail. And as such, now he was forced to disappear and hide from them whenever they came. He couldn't't risk dying now, not when he was so close. As such, you could probably see Ganondorf disappearing from the sight of plague doctors whenever one was around-- Or alternatively you could spot him hiding behind a wall or pillar to hide from them.

Probably not easy given his massive size. Feel free to point this out to him. ]



B || Plotting & Regular Day || Cafeteria/Towerception
[ Otherwise, Ganondorf could be found either at the cafeteria or on the roof of Towerception, plotting for Jason's arrival, awaiting news from the team he had sent to see Zo and all around patiently waiting for something new to happen that wasn't related to the plague doctors.

Noticeably in the cafeteria, he was using his glamour powers to animate empty Darknut armor and organize them in case anything would happen. Darknuts always came in handy. ]

[Running from those dammed doctors all day. Veronica was more than a little agitated by it all. Something was coming, she could feel it, and if she couldn't fight back to protect Rick or the others...]

....Uh.

[Breathing slowly, Veronica stared in confusion at the large... person hiding behind the pillar.]

Uh... a-are you... h-hiding too?

[Ever since seeing the rift in the floor, Waver had decided to take a risk in carrying his very real pair of daggers with him. If he ended up getting killed, they'd no doubt be replaced with useless glamour. But on the other hand, he suspected they might just end up necessary so he wouldn't be killed stupidly.]

[Carrying those didn't serve to make Waver feel any better. He was distinctly uncomfortable, and it was beginning to show in many respects. This incident came on the end of a long struggle with research, and therefore Waver had been very poorly rested for all this nonsense.]

[On top of the minimal sleeping and eating he'd been doing, now Waver's Magic Circuits had gone completely dead. Although his was not a particularly well-established crest and he lacked a great number of circuits, for them all to simply cease function was much like losing a sense entirely.]

[Scowling, the magus reached his right hand over to his left shoulder as though he was in pain from something--but it was quite the opposite. The complete absence of the tingling sense of prana moving through his circuits due to an active Servant and Master contract was an odd sense of silence the likes of which had always led Waver to stay far away from floors that deactivated his abilities.]

[There weren't really any complaints he could make on the matter; this was what the testing was for, after all. And no one wanted to listen to one person bitch about losing magic with all this other madness going on.]

[Pale, tired, and looking more severe than ever Waver dropped into a chair and adjusted his sunglasses. Folding his arms, he simply regarded the rest of the infirmary with a frown and waited until he saw an opportunity to actually be useful. Even without magic he could offer first aid...although not much else.]

[Ken dropped into a chair next to Waver, looking suddenly small and weak. Without his Persona, and without the kind of years of training some people here had, he was sort of useless. Even though he had a spear that he could use, it was better to help protect people than go out looking for trouble.]

[He knew that.]

[It didn't make it any easier.]

[He looked over at Waver, tilting his head slightly before speaking softly.]


... You okay?

*He'd been prepared for his glamoured armor to disappear. Still, he felt so vulnerable without it, unable to keep himself from tensing up as he left the examination room.

But the Arch was an object, not of his power. Surely, he could still defend himself with it.

He drew it, then, for reassurance, opening it, and...nothing. The beam would not appear. He closed it and sank down against a wall, staring up at the ceiling with a hand on his collar. This would...it would be worth it, wouldn't it?*

Closed to Lucifel

*The moment he spotted Lucifel in the chaos of the infirmary, he rose and made his way to him, holding his Arch tight.*

[Open] 17th - 21st Dec. 1st Block & Infirmary

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2013-12-23 10:34 am (UTC)(link)
17th - 21st Dec, Around the First Block [Fl 1 - 20]
[With so many plague doctor-like creatures on the move, Sephiroth also must keep on the move. He certainly wasn't going to hunker down in the Infirmary as so many others seemed wont to do, and only made the trip to the 2nd Floor for basic supplies (Read: finding those small wipes for tending to any slashes himself) - Sephiroth's body under Glamour at least is self-sufficient, however the lethargy from not sleeping in his Dormitory (or at all) starts later to sap at his sharp senses.

He might be found in the Forest, carefully picking through the trees and cutting down the regular game of the Tower. Sometimes in the Maze, especially in the run-up to their plot; there is no indication at all when Jason will grace them with his presence after all. In the rafters of the Cathedral too, when Sephiroth wants to remain hidden in the shadows up there and watch down at whomever (or whatever) might be patrolling by. More often than not he can be seen sweeping the stairwells, forever cautious at the top or bottom of each set in case those things may have caught his scent. On hyper-alert with extended senses to his maximum limit, fully prepared to have to flee in a heartbeat. Despite how it sickens his pride, to be brought so low as prey to these creatures,]


21st Dec, Collar Check [Infirmary]
[It wouldn't be safe at all, to lose consciousness randomly somewhere in the Tower with those things on the loose. This is the predominate reason that Sephiroth turns up for the Violet Collar check today.

But to have to deal with unexpected circumstances, on account of the possible side effects of the new fluid isn't acceptable either for the same reason. He can't fight them, but it has taken all of his cunning agility to avoid them for the whole week and given the sustaining aspects of the fluid that he's now keenly aware of - he must remain at his best. Sephiroth wants to observe the effects in the new fluid formula, in others first so that he could better know what to expect.

He waits around the Infirmary, pacing at intervals, while he waits his turn and once sat there and being tended to he keeps his eyes pointedly elsewhere - Sephiroth doesn't want to deal with anyone while he's in such a position, submitting to the will of the Tower. Much less make any eye contact with any of the units milling around.

Of course this means a resident could catch him on the way out, for sure.]

21st Dec, Collar Check [Infirmary]

[personal profile] oathshackledbird 2013-12-23 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[Diarmuid doesn't catch Sephiroth on the way out so much as he has been glaring at him ever since he came into the collar fluid change area. He has just finished his own collar fluid change and much like Sephiroth, he has also taken the old fluid. Of course, their reasons for this action are as different as they are they same. Waver is currently powerless because he did take the new fluid and with no idea how long that will last and with those...creatures still out and about, there is no way Diarmuid will risk them both by giving up his powers as well.

On his way out, Sephiroth passes close, but not too close to where Diarmuid is standing. Still, despite the distance, Diarmuid's soft words should be clear.]


Congratulations. It seems all that hard work has paid off. For once, you didn't fail.
