    Default Crawling Within the Dark Depths [IC]

    Plane over the Pacific Ocean
    The trip as yet was uneventful and smooth. There was no turbulence, and most people were either alseep or eating, creating silence except for the faint hum of the plane. The person next to you wasn't asleep nor eating though, instead he gazed at a book that he apparently brought with him.

    Both Robert and Zak are sitting next to each other, Zak is sitting the furthest away from the center. Your seats are in the middle section of the plane.

    It was a perfectly clear night. Thousands of stars gleaming around the plane. The moon was a smooth ivory, but despite its grace, it was distant and cold.

    Hearing a disturbance from the front of the plane, you look both look up from your books. A young man, appearing to be in his twenties stood trying to move past a flight attendant.

    A brown package laid in his left palm, his other hand at his side.
    "Excuse me sir, you ca-"
    She is silenced as he reaches into his jacket, revealing a gun.
    Pointing it at her she cowers and starts to move away, all the while the other passengers begin to scream.

    The gunmen remains silent and emotionless as he starts to enter the cockpit.

    Please just let me read in peace, Robert prayed to whatever God was out here. He flipped through the worn pages of his favorite novel, Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. It was a thoroughly familiar read, but even a mystery novel without the mystery seemed preferable to Robert than interacting with the usual idiots he sat next to on plane rides.

    This time, his neighbor doesn't seem all that bad. The man wore an acceptable tuxedo, he looked like he could be in the military, and he was doing crossword puzzles. The collective image placed Robert's snap judgment of the stranger somewhere north of the default disdain. At least he won't insist on showing me pictures of his kids the entire time.
    ---
    Robert reads for a while, until some commotion up front breaks his concentration. He looks up and sees the scene unfolding. He shuts his book and sighs deeply. "Are you serious..."

    Zak looked at his crossword puzzle, he was looking for the name of the first computer chip made, but the word had slipped his mind. Next to him, he noticed, the man was reading a mystery novel.
    Suddenly a commotion at the front of the plane drew his attention. Seeing the man with the gun, Zak immediatly stood and began to make his way to the front of the plane mumbling to himself "Of course it's on MY first flight, couldnt happen to any other planes, has to happen to my first one."

    Yikes, this guy is either really brave or really, really stupid, Robert thinks to himself when he sees Zak approach the cabin door.

    For a single moment, Robert actually feels glad that this flight would be entertaining. Then the realization that bullets probably aren't exactly plane-friendly pulls him back down to some mixture of fear and anticipation. He stands up to watch how this plays out and mutters under his breath, "Good luck, tough guy."

    As the passengers screamed, Danielle, who was sitting behind the unusual couple of men, was suffering from experiencing a ... well... experience. Yes, Danielle has yet to meet someone who has survived a plane hijacking but that wasn't the reason she was in pain. It was the emotions she was forced to process.

    It wasn't the fear, no, she had her fair share during her jobs along with excitement. It wasn't the anger she felt for the man who had caused her fear. And nor was it the annoyance she felt for this happening on he particular flight. No, it was in fact her powerlessness, her hopelessness in the situation.

    She grasped her head and clenched her eyes as she began to repeatedly whisper: "He is dead, he can't hurt you."

    Behind the Gunmen, you notice a gleam from within the cockpit.
    You eyes focus on it and you immediately recognise it.

    Within the cockpit you could see a bomb.

    You try and grab the pistol, but he pushed past, as you reached out. The Gunmen started to run down to the other end of the plane.

    You can't see any form of timer on the devic-

    BOOOM!

    Fire rolled out from the device, and a torrent of heat burt through the whole plane.

    The world went dark. The ocean was cold.

    Swimming up to the surface you find your self surrounded by the sinking burning wreakage of the plane. Two other survivors swam near you.

    As soon as Danielle rose to the surface she sputtered, coughed, flailed and panted. Her training has actually impeded her ability to swim due to her lack of fat. Her body ached from the trauma of surviving a plane crash and, due to drowning not so long ago, she was a little out of it.

    But she had to survive and as her muscles grew tired from keeping herself afloat she looked for something to help her survival. Hopefully something that would serve as driftwood and wasn't a dead body.

    You quickly find a six metre long wooden plank which is floating atop the water and reach it in few seconds of swimming.

    You see Danielle grasping onto a piece of wood.

    Danielle frantically looked around for anything else of use. Her Longevity has been extended but she doubts that she would live long enough in the freezing waters for rescue to come. It would probably be a salvage operation instead of a rescue operation.

    Past the smoke and destroyed plane parts, you can see a colossal tower, under further examination it appeared to be a light house.

    Danielle jumps at the sudden presence of another survivor. However, as she is already in high alert, her breathing becomes no more frantic and her heart rate stays booming at a high velocity. She turns to face newcomer simply to anknowledge his presence, as the blazing fires doing little illuminate his details, before she raised an arm to point towards it.

    "I see a something over there." She returned her gaze to the suspicious, lone tower in the middle of the ocean which was coloured onyx in the darkness. Danielle was sure she would have missed it if it wasn't for the light shining on the top and the glow of the full moon illuminating a section of night sky behind it, preventing it from blending into the background. "I have no wish to freeze to death so I'm to head to that lighthouse over there."

    Danielle suddenly releases the driftwood and begins swimming towards the tower.

    After hearing the womans words, Zak decides that the only thing he can do is follow her and hope to find dry land nearby. He lets go of the driftwood and follows Danielle, staying close enough to her to help if she needed it, but far enough away to give the woman her personal space.

    You two swiftly reach the lighthouse. It appears to be a clear white marble without fault. Along the right-side is an assortment of stairs leading to a large golden door. Each step you took was sluggish, and a trail of water dripped onto the dry stone.

    The door in front of you was closed, and glowed with the light of the surrounding flames.

    Danielle flattened her palm on to the surface of the door and began to take deep breaths.

    "Help me..." She said between breaths "Search for a knob or something..."

    Danielle began searching for a mechanism to open the door with. She ran her pal across the surface in case her eyes missed anything within the light of the dancing flames.

    The door slowly glided inward, revealing a room alit by lights. It was in several floors, this section was small having only a balcony overlooking a statue, and two staircases leading to lower levels.

    The walls were bronze in colour, and shared the metalic gleen of the door. Attached to each wall was a sigil, an orb with feathered wings.

    The Statue was of a grim man, glaring down upon you with a grimace. A sanguine banner hung below his face, and words of gold lay upon it.

    NO GODS OR KINGS
    ONLY MAN.

    The assassin hurried on to the indoor balcony before gaping in awe at the inanimate face in front of her.

    "No Gods or Kings. Only man." She read the words aloud before shivering once again from the outdoor breeze. "For some reason I don't think this is your typical lighthouse..."

    To escape the cold she began shambling down the stairs.

    Zak followed Danielle through the doorway she had opened. Upon seeing the statue Zak gasped and as he read the words he grew confused. There are no such things as gods he thought to himself as he began to follow Danielle once again up there stairway.

    "Where do you suppose we are?" Asked Zak as he looked around the staircase.

    She hummed thoughtfully before replying. "Research facility? Seems likely..."

    Danielle began rummaging through her skirt pockets as she descended the stairs, pulling out a small black bottle and a dark wooden box. She returned the hair dye back where she found it after confirming that it was still intact. However, she opened the makeup kit and released a sigh of relief when she found the contents untouched by the sea water. She sighed again when she realised that she wasn't wearing eye shadow and as a result she felt grateful that she doesn't look like harlot.

    As he watched the girl with her make-up he remembered his gun and quickly checked whether the water had gotten into the bullets.
    As he found there was no water in them, he held it in his hands, just in case they were to run into any trouble.

    As you move down the stairs, you notice plaques along the walls.
    "Art"
    "Industry"
    "Science"

    Soon you reach the bottom floor, and a metal orb lay in the center of the room.
    It looked severely damaged, with tears rending into its bronze roof. The sphere had a thick glass door which was currently ajar.

    The bathysphere was dark, possessing no lights.
