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.]

[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.]

Welcome aboard!

[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!

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.]

Meiling...!

[ is there an echo in here Oh, that voice is not good. She hasn't heard it in the longest time, and she just wants to run to her, to shake her out of this, this--feral stupor, but there's no time for that. Meiling is the only one she recognizes in this room, even with the glamour down, but there's no reason to damn these other people who were clearly trying to fight Riki as well.

She doesn't know if it will do any good, but she throws up a danmaku shield in front of Reno, to try and at least nullify a portion of the electricity. ]
megazero_to_superhero: Now where'd that last goon go? (✪ Observing ★ Conversation)

[personal profile] megazero_to_superhero 2014-06-04 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[By this point David's gotten close enough that he can make a move. But since he's not a Tanker, and he's a Blaster trying to pretend he's a Scrapper, he's going to try and get a hit in on Riki from behind while he's focused on the others.]

[So he continues running, past the others until he's generally behind the monstrosity they're fighting. Once he's sure that it's focused on someone else—he can't tell who is who, only that it's shooting electricity at one of the others—he makes a run for ... well, it looks like legs to him.]

[For a moment, David feels like he's back on the gym, that one day he was training with Diarmuid in basic swordsmanship. The sword's presently much heavier in his hands than it is when the glamour's functional—but he tries not to think about that. Focus on what he can do, here and now.]

[Once he figures he's close enough, David swings the Orcish sword for ... well, he can't quite be sure what he's aiming at given the poor visibility here and the general inhuman appearance of this thing, but he's going to try and slice into the back of one of Riki's legs as hard as he can.]

[The spots in her vision are starting to fade a little, and she turns just in time to see the electricity arcing towards her. A dodge roll is an easy enough maneuver to perform, and it's what she does. Unfortunately she's not quite fast enough - part of the electricity hits her trailing leg, sending a half-numbing half-painful jolt crawling up that leg.

Still, she completes the motion, a little clumsily, before turning her Keyblade back towards Riki. She fires off her own elemental spell - Firaga. The advantage of Firaga - at least as she knows how to use it - is how it tends to home in on targets, and when it comes into contact with Riki or the floor it should explode. Not a massive explosion - but enough to do some damage, she hopes.]

[Hearing her name twice, her head comes off the ground and looks around quickly. She recognizes the voices but... She gets up and shakes herself off, still hurting from the shock and backs off for now. This was going to take more then just attacking at random. She'll stay back, looking for another opening to attack, but also trying to find who called for her. She'll defend them if what she could do in this state was unneeded.]

*Once the entrance is held open, and Enoch sees not necessarily who it is but that there's a fight going on, when he sees that people are using powers, he abandons his defensive position and hurries to join in. He may have been encouraged to work in a team during his time here, but his reflexes for battle have been built on a necessity to act where he can - and now he can.

He's a distinct target, the Arch's glow giving off his position without being of any help in illuminating anything, a bladed arc of light in the dark that he'll use to his advantage.

All this manipulation of structure around the thing...there's no doubt that what he sees now is Riki.*

Riki!

*Blatant as a distraction tactic? Maybe. But he's certainly not going to be able to attack effectively when his weapon literally glows. He'd be swatted away before he even got there, or worse.*
megazero_to_superhero: I gotta fight Hamidon in a bikini?! (✪ Conversation ★ Surprise)

[personal profile] megazero_to_superhero 2014-06-05 01:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Speaking of people who have experience with getting swatted away, David utterly fails to put up a meaningful defense to Riki's counterblow. He doesn't have the agility to dodge that kind of strike, nor the sturdiness to absorb the blow and stand his ground.]

[With a pained shout of surprise, David is flung backwards quite a ways. Try as he might to hold onto the sword, the first impact with the ground launches it out of his hand, causing it to skid a few yards away with a loud clatter.]

[The inertia from that strike causes David to tumble further away, until he finally comes to a halt, lying on his back—momentarily taken out of the fight.]

[It's taken Patchouli longer than she'd like to get onto the battlefield. On the one hand? She has her magic and it looks like she can use it. On the other? There's only so much she can actually do in a fight.

She takes a look around and surveys the situation, before nodding her head. There's one danmaku shield on the field, but a larger one can't hurt things. She's careful that the rain of small projectiles that comes from her fingers isn't aimed at anyone actually on the floor - making the situation harder to dodge isn't going to help - instead attempting to curve it around them.]
attheclocktower: (pic#6518056)

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2014-06-06 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Well this has already turned into a fine mess. She scans across the field, though in the chaos and darkness it's hard to see everything. She misses seeing Shion - probably all the better, though she doesn't know it.

Her leg - still numb - will make her more than a liability at this rate, and the others inside still need to know more about who they're up against, since none of them has ever actually fought Riki before.

She's loath to leave the fight, but she'd gone out in the first place to asses the situation, and assessed it she has. Pulling her hood up over her head to hopefully make herself a little less visible, Xion pushes herself to her feet and stumbles her way back towards the hidden door, dodging rolling as she can for both speed and to make it easier to move despite her leg. If things start to get or look dangerous, she'll back off, but if she sees an opportunity, she'll take it.]

[When he heard the commotion and after seeing others are already getting ready to be medics inside the hidden floor, Minato immediately went out with his now filmy evoker. Will it work or not? He didn't think about it, just jumped into action and point the gun shaped film object at himself.

He's counting on the adrenaline, the surge of fear and desire of self-preservation he feel, to fuel his Personas. If they fail, they might die again or worse.

Throne!

[In contrast to his wireframe body, the Persona appeared as itself, dark and clutching the flaming wheel. As his Personas were intrinsically connected to his soul and emerged from it, they're more real than the filmy weapons or glamour powers.

Instead of attacking, a healing spell was cast upon the group within his range. Full heal for all the people he recognised as his allies, courtesy of Mediarahan.

[personal profile] notsogrimreaper 2014-06-10 12:34 pm (UTC)(link)
No!

[Ryoji hadn't arrived on the hidden floor until just a few moments before, just in time to see one of his most important friends about to get attacked. He doesn't have time to ask if he can help or see where he'd be most useful. All he knows is that his friend is in danger, and he quickly transforms into Thanatos to block the attack with his sword. Hopefully this form will be enough to hold it off, even if it isn't real. At least the blade in his hands, taken from one of the monsters, is.]

*It's exactly as he expected. Riki would aim for his weapon. Not that he's necessarily invisible in the dark, considering the lack of glamour, but he has shown he can draw attacks. For a second. Not enough, he wouldn't let anything through.

So he had to do something else. He dashed ahead, closing his Arch to be that much less light on the field, hoping the presence of Ryoji's enormous form on the field was enough to distract Riki, just long enough he didn't see someone else coming at him from the side. If he made it to him, he'd open his Arch and lash out in a whirling strike in one fluid motion, hoping to injure Riki enough to force him to try to compensate, to focus on repairing himself, or to distract him with the pain. Or maybe, if he was lucky, he might sever or nearly sever that foot. Maybe. Either way, he'd let the momentum of the whirl carry him to the side in the hopes of avoiding a counterattack.*

[It's been long enough and she had not figured out where her name had come from and the common enemy in the room pulls her attention once more. Of course now is the time she finally pulls out her abilities, rainbow colored ki forming around her arms.

Meiling isn't in the best of shape still, due to the bot she received but she again charges, going to the opposite side of Enoch, her fists flying at high speeds. Mostly out of the hope that is one attack misses, the other will hit and do damage to Riki.

[personal profile] notsogrimreaper 2014-06-10 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Thankfully, Ryoji manages to keep his grip, and once Riki is forced back, he turns to the rest of the group.]

Tell me how to help, and I'm here.

[He manages a small smile at Minato as well, relieved that he seems to be safe. He'll protect the group's healer for now, unless anyone has a better idea.]

[personal profile] keybearer 2014-06-10 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's been long enough that Riku's opted to check in on the situation, and when he sees the chaos unfolding, he shudders. With the others caught up in their fight, he hopes, prays for an opening. But rather than opt for an offensive strike, he fires off a blast of wind at Riki in the vain hope that he might push him closer to the floor's edge.]
evokingfool: (Card - The Wild Card)

[personal profile] evokingfool 2014-06-11 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
[When metal coils come for him, Minato tried to have Throne shield him. He's not fast enough, but Ryoji shielded him in time. His eyes widened a bit, before he smiled and nodded. He turned his attention back at Riki, just in time to see him blown away from them by a wind spell.

Throne's immediately dismissed, before he summoned another Persona in its place. Cu Chulainn appeared with a brief flourish, before he buffed everyone's attacking power (physical, magical, other technicalities here) with a spell.

[It's taken him a bit to get here. Trying to wade through the chaos, through all of this - but he has to fight. There's no other choice. He sees things moving, sees people attacking, and he takes a deep breath before running forward, Evoker pressed to his head.]

Dike!

[The armored woman appears, sending lightning streaking towards Riki. He's mechanical... hopefully this can help overload him.]
