Endgame: Eyes I Dare Not Meet in Dreams

Characters: open
Setting: floor 101/hidden floor; June 2
Format: action brackets, please
Summary: Something arrives.
Warnings: psychological horror, physical horror, violence

[The thing arrives on the twenty-third floor where no one is around to see it. But even if there was anyone except the retrieval units there, they would hardly have a chance to spot a single shadow, as the Tower pushes around and caresses the thing, hiding it away. The Tower ripples, then, and delivers the thing up and up, skipping floor after floor.

Floor one-hundred and one goes dark, and the glamour fails entirely. There's a thing lurking about in the darkness, approaching the way to the hidden floor. It can't be seen in this gloom, but it can be heard taking heavy, laden footsteps.]

101

[Reno, standing watch on Floor 101, feels a certain sense of dread when the glamour fails and hearing those footsteps... what the hell? Didn't the monsters get zapped out?

Moving closer to the entrance to the hidden floor, he looks around trying to spot whatever it is. Unfortunately, he's missed the excitement on the hidden floor.]
midgarhorizon: (this ones weird sis)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2014-06-04 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
W... oh fuck no.

[Standing here seems like a really bad idea. He has no weapons, or armor, or hell, even magic anymore.

Yeah okay, it's time for a retreat, and that's what he does, speeding straight for the entrance and hoping to high or heaven it gets him back on the hidden floor to warn everyone.]

[Stumbling, Reno tries to dodge or block the floor coming at him, but still trying for his goal.]

Oh, shit.

[Hold on, stumbling again...]

The hell Ruana do to you!?

[Well, Reno get's a reprieve as a taller figure comes out of the darkness to at least attempt to get him out of there, thowing punched and clawing at the melting floor to open a way out. Although it does turn to snarl at Riki]
savedbyasong: (oh but I thought...)

[Shion hadn't actually been on the hidden floor when everything had happened but he had been on his way and it was obvious even from the staircase something was wrong.

He heard voices in the dark of the hundred and first floor and recognised them. Or at least recognised Reno, and he thought the other was Riki. He set off at a run towards them.]

[This isn't good... this stuff looks like moving quick sand, and the Turk comes up short, stopping before he could touch the stuff.]

Why don't ya just forget about all this and tell her to bite herself?

[The sudden hole opening is just what he needs, though. Taking a breath, he tries to make a dash and wriggle through, hoping his speed will be enough to clear the hole before Riki can react. At this rate he doesn't even care about injuries.]
colorfulbrilliance: (Disgusted)

[personal profile] colorfulbrilliance 2014-06-04 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[Once that hole is open, Meiling moves back and falls back onto her hands, standing there in defiance. She would run to help Shion but he's too far away, letting out a wordless yell in concern. Although her eyes never leave Riki for more then a second. ]

[Xion had exited the hidden floor under the pretense of checking the conditions, seeing what's going on outside their little formerly safe haven.

What she actually sees distracts her almost entirely.

Shion and Reno, another resident, and... something. She spots the eyes first, then the outline- So he was still alive. She runs forward a few steps, summoning her Keyblade in a flash of light and hurling it directly at Riki - forgoing dealing with the floor and what he was doing to it to focus directly on the source]


Leave my family alone!
savedbyasong: (pain)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2014-06-04 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[He dodges the first set of spikes but the next set catch him in the shoulder and he lets out a cry of pain. He falls to the floor and struggles to his knees, hand coming up to press against the injury. He looks up to see Xion stood in the entrance of the hidden floor, keyblade in hand.

Despite the pain he grinned, her bravery giving him the strength to stand once more]
You heard her. Leave them alone!
savedbyasong: (pain)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2014-06-04 10:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[And they succeed, there's no way he could dodge them fast enough. He cries out again, this time louder but bites his lip to silence himself. He won't give Riki the satisfaction of hearing him in pain.

He tries to fight his darkening vision. His body wants to give in to the pain but he needs to make sure they escape, he needs to know... He wants to say something but all his body can register is pain and he thinks if he opens his mouth all he will be able to do is scream.]

attheclocktower: (wince ♡ quiet thought which then)

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2014-06-04 10:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[Xion flings her hand in front of her eyes. When she manages to save them partially from being blinded, there's still spots dancing in her vision. She recalls her Keyblade to her hand in a second, then is moving away from where she'd stood - staying still is dangerous now - when she hears her brother's cry.]

Shion!

[She's still got spots in her eyes, Even if they don't totally obscure her vision, they do enough, and seeing what Riki could do with the floor, this was literally terrifying. She turns back towards the door to the hidden floor - she'd been able to see it grabbed at least - as she moves, trying to keep her motions erratic.]

Guys we need help! It's Riki!
colorfulbrilliance: (I'm coming for you!)

[personal profile] colorfulbrilliance 2014-06-04 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[The feral covers her eyes with one arm, just in case but once the flash is over, she charges Riki, trying to at least slow his progress and give the others time to come down and help or to get away safely.]
midgarhorizon: (fire in his eyes)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2014-06-04 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[Reno had been about to-- he doesn't even remember what, all he thinks about when he sees Shion go is revenge.]

Shion!

[Screw the floor, in the same instant as Meiling's charge the Turk changes gears and starts running at the Riki beast, not caring for the floor or the fact he had no weapons, he is going to take the bastard apart with his bare hands.]

[ It was quicker to fly up the stairs themselves rather than trust the elevator, she thought, but shock of the glamour shutting off suddenly slowed her down a good bit. So she was...a bit too late for her liking. Though her hearing didn't fail her--it was good enough to hear 'it's Riki!' shouted desperately, causing her to bolt through the door as quickly as could physically muster. She automatically knows it's some sort of trouble, Gungir appearing in her hands. ]

What's going on--?!
megazero_to_superhero: Oh I'll show ya some Blaster's Wrath, alright ... (✪ Determined ★ Angry ★ Looking Up)

*jumps in here as well!*

[personal profile] megazero_to_superhero 2014-06-04 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[He didn't hear Xion's call for help, but David emerges from the teleporter leading to the Hidden Floor by this point—for him, it was the glamour failure that tipped him off that things were getting heavy.]

[He skids to a halt just moments after entering Floor 101, seeing what's happening not too far away.]

Oh, boy.

[No powers to speak of—even if this fight were happening on a floor without Power Suppression—against what ... whatever that thing is.]

[Steeling himself, he tightens his grip on the Orcish sword and charges forward to enter the fray, but he's not going to get within striking distance of Riki immediately.]
colorfulbrilliance: (Fighting with myself)

Welcome aboard!

[personal profile] colorfulbrilliance 2014-06-04 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[The electricity hits hard and a mixture between a scream and a roar escapes Meiling, putting her to the ground. It defiantly stunned her and she makes not attempt to get up for a moment..although hearing voices, she does call out.]

Attack!
cullscuttlefish: (all I can do is make them pay)

[personal profile] cullscuttlefish 2014-06-04 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Meiling --!

[Feferi's off the teleporter as fast as she possibly can be. Her trident might only be film, but she's got it in both hands as she starts running. It probably won't do much, but it'll be something in her hands.]
