Endgame: In This Last of Meeting Places

Characters: Aria, Zo, open
Setting: floor 001 for now
Format: action brackets
Summary: Aria and Zo reappear quite suddenly.
Warnings: standard animus event warnings

Aria and Zo tumble out of the elevator more than they step out of it. They look worse for wear; Zo's covered in minor scrapes and bruises, and Aria'a left arm hangs at her side uselessly, bloody and mangled. As soon as they're on solid ground, Zo turns and forces the elevator doors shut without touching them, leaving the broken car lodged in place behind it, and Aria slides to the floor, gasping for breath. They're both on high alert even for all their exhaustion.

SPEAK TO ARIA
SPEAK TO ZO
ESCAPE
-FLOOR EIGHT

FLOOR EIGHT

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 02:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[As the group reaches floor eight, it seems something in the Tower has shifted--the staircase cuts off here, opening into the maze instead. It seems like, to continue up the staircase, they'll have to run through the maze. Aria tries to cut into the walls of the maze, but they prove impervious.]

...We'll just have to go through.

[And they're running again.]

[Zelda grits her teeth at the sight of the maze, thoughts immediately turning towards Riki and his ability to manipulate the glamour. If this awaits them this far down, what's in store for them as they run higher up?

No time to think about that now. She continues dashing after Aria.]


Watch the walls. He might try to use them to stop us as he did downstairs.

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2014-05-25 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well this was new. And like Zelda, Xion is uneasy. Some of the floors further up were really bad... they couldn't afford all these delays. Still, nothing for it, they have to go on. She takes off jogging too.]

I haven't been here since- [Since the Evil meeting, over a year and a half ago. She calls out.]

Watch out for monsters too. [Those closer to her or with more sensitive hearing might hear her mutter] It's what Ganondorf did.

[personal profile] pitiedthefool 2014-05-25 05:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yu frowns as he catches up, a bit of a frown settling on his otherwise unreadable expression. Figures Riki would use the tower against them in this manner.]

Got it.

[Sounds like they could use a boost in agility just in case, so he lets Odin cast Masukukaja before disappearing to save his energy.]
stitchedupbodyguard: (Lots of swords)

[personal profile] stitchedupbodyguard 2014-05-25 05:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Veronica sticks around the back of the group, purposefully putting herself between the worker units and Zo and Aria. While she gripped her sword in one hand, the other toyed with one of the grenades she still kept with her.]

Maybe we'll lose the units in the maze?

[Standing at the start of the Maze, Elena hisses an obscenity beneath her breath. Mazes were nothing more than elaborate traps, in her opinion, and she found nothing appealing about being forced to go through it.]

We've got no other choice, it seems. You two ready? [Its a brave face for the smaller two.] Lets stick close together. We don't want to get separated.
wrigurun: (This feeling... → PV)

[personal profile] wrigurun 2014-05-25 08:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah...

[Wriggle seems a little anxious about the maze, especially considering it brought up some bad memories. It would be fine if she could fly over it but no such luck]

Let's just get through here quickly...

[These people weren't against her though, and they would protect her as much as she would protect them. Wriggle kept repeating that to herself]
myblueskies: (brave smiles)

[personal profile] myblueskies 2014-05-25 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course we're ready! [Romeo smiled at her, a brave face as well.] Even though we might get lost the retrieval units might get lost as well, it will be easier to stay away from them and if Zo and Aria got in here they might not find them either!

[Edgeworth has become a better runner since Animus - all that avoiding monsters unless he had to defend himself to scare them off. And all that using the stairs instead of the elevator.

This doesn't mean that Edgeworth will not stop if he finds an injured guest or a guest who has tripped. If that's the case with your character, he will try to help you up.]

[Well hello there Mr. Edgeworth. Today must be your lucky day. Because you have just run into another person attempting to avoid the hordes...as per usual. Occasionally he did something fancy to either test the limits of their abilities to change their reality, or to slow them long enou to get away.

Which was led him to bump into the Tower's local lawyer.]

Re: FLOOR EIGHT

....'Peep'?

[He's choosing to not get involved with the hoardes unless someone is in trouble. Then he'll use his LOGIC! to save them. Because while Edgeworth's not a coward he also isn't reckless and would rather not thoughtlessly put his life in danger.]

[There's a screech, and Tobias lands in the maze. They need something big, something to block the way. It won't be for too long, but maybe it'll be enough. African elephant clearly wasn't big enough, so he makes sure he's got a good amount of space lengthwise. His body stretches and grows, and he gets most of the way into his sperm whale morph before he simply can't fit more in the maze's 'hallway'.]

[This should hold for a bit, at least until he starts taking too much damage.]

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-26 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
[Many of the retrieval units run into Tobias and stumble away. For a few minutes, they are halted, trying assess the nature of the blockage.

One retrieval unit eventually sticks a limb into Tobias, tactilely undetectable as its body goes intangible and steps through him, returning to a solid state once on the other side and resuming its chase. After a moment, the others that had run into him follow suit.]

[Sheba had been lost in the maze before the retrieval units had chased Zo, Aria, and their escorts up; by a happy coincidence, she had run into Quark, who was... also lost in the maze. Since then they had only managed to get even more lost. Neither one of them is aware of the keep-your-hand-to-the-wall trick.

After awhile, it seems as though they're just going in circles - and then Sheba looks up and frowns a little when she hears a noise coming from somewhere else in the maze.]


...did you hear something?
averytinyparticle: (W-whoa!)

[personal profile] averytinyparticle 2014-05-28 05:25 am (UTC)(link)
Y-Yeah...

[Quark puts his hands on his hat, looking nervous and feeling nervous...and tired. A ten-year-old can only walk around a maze for so long before his feet start to ache. And after having been in a maze not too long ago as part of Ruana's game, the memories were still unpleasantly fresh. He wishes he'd never stepped in here in the first place--but it was nice to have Sheba with him, at least.]

You don't think it's the monsters coming back, do you?!
seekinganswers: (Let's get down to business.)

[personal profile] seekinganswers 2014-05-28 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
...don't worry.

[It might be - she doesn't know. But she's sure as hell not going to say that to a ten-year-old.] I can do magic, see? [She opens her palm and focuses; sparks of lightning crackle at her fingertips.] If anything is around here, I'll take care of it.

[Suzaku led the way, watching out for any obstacles left by previous residents fleeing as well as any retreival units that had gotten in front of them. When he saw the maze he skidded to a halt and turned back to Diarmuid and Waver.] Riki... He's trying to slow us down...

[Being in the middle of the group might not be the position Diarmuid would usually take, but he knows that Suzaku's geass will get him out of the way should something blindside them from the front, and Waver might need some help should they get surprised from behind while he is casting.

Suzaku's words make the serious look on his face, grow more so.]


Riki or Ruana. I realize this looks like Riki's work, but we all know how Ruana can be with those who have wronged her...

[Dax. Jason. Who knows if Riki has shared their fate at this point?]


Zo told me that this happened shortly after he told Ruana he wouldn't bring anyone else to the Tower. The timing might be a coincidence or it might not.
fionnuisce: (keep my heart slow)

[personal profile] fionnuisce 2014-05-28 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
We could discuss this later, don't you think?!

[Waver occasionally paused long enough to attack, alternating between throwing water and mercury to push their pursuit back and ice to slow them down, scowling when he got a look at the maze.]

Don't stop--we haven't a choice at this point. If we fall behind, we're definitely fucked even more than we already are.
