    Default MagCave VII: Rest for the Wicked

    Every evil genius needs a place of relaxation and quiet, a place to hoard his stolen loot, a place to scheme and plot. For Magtok, this is the MagCave. Drilled into the side of Mt. Enn, it serves as his base of operations, living quarters, garage, and workplace. It holds damned damsels in distress, places protagonists in perilous predicaments, and is quite likely the fanciest-looking fortress in all of the Nexus. As a matter of fact, it is the fanciest-looking fortress in all of the Nexus. Yes, even better than your lame fortress.

    Magtok isn't exactly the most sane or typical of Nexus residents though, and thanks to MagCorp's riches, it definitely shows here. There are rooms and hallways full of terrible monsters and hideous half-breeds concocted through twisted experiments, ginormous statues made in the vain super-villain's image, deathtraps at every corner to keep out unwanted visitors, and enough fancy laser guns, loyal robot minions patrolling everywhere, and rows of cloning tanks perpetuating the cyborg's existence to make even the mightiest of comic book villains jealous. This is Maggy's castle, his mansion, his military headquarters, research laboratory and surveillance station all wrapped up into one sinister package. Beware all ye who enter, for here be Magtoks!

    Update - Things are nice and peaceful and quiet right now. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are!

    ((Note: The MagCave is a sort of public secret, like Area 41. It's a rather isolated locale, obsessively watched over and guarded by a quarter-mile of security cameras. It's simple enough to find if one knows where they're going, and nearly impossible to locate if you're looking for "That cave by those mountains somewhere, maybe at the bottom".))

    Quips a similar playful smile right back.

    There's also the fact that the projection is a fairly recent experiment and he just used it tonight to improvise a costume, but meh.

    "And you can completely, permanently destroy this combination a moment later, right?" The last time a Reinholdt had a child, insofar as Magtok knows, it was Shepherd. Shepherd was pretty much the worst thing that ever happened. When it comes to awful apocalypse babies, nothing quite compares to that repulsive little toddler and his nightmarish yet brief reign of terror. If Magtok saw so much as a hint of pink in the thing's eyes, anything that looks even a little Kaela-ish, he'd probably try to reach out, throw it on the floor, and grind the little blob of water into nothingness beneath his heel.

    "Sure, go ahead." Since Magtok was dragging his feet and not saying no, might as well go for it.

    Besides, in so far as she knows, Magtok doesn't have any relation to Rabbit or Happy or their family's DNA, so it can't be a little water Shepherd. Not that it could be even if he did.

    A little over five hundred feet, but I have a spell that lets me double that for a limited time, so I can clear a thousand feet tall.

    Misha-Goldwynn-Magtok

    "It'll only hold together for a moment or two, since the rest of the sample I've got from you two will be broken apart by it." And with their permission and that explanation, Misha's form morphs. Her audience might have misunderstood when she said she could let them see what their kid would look like. Rather than what they'd look like as a baby, since nearly ever baby is so similar that the subtle differences are just boring to distinguish apart, she simply uses up the rest of the gene sequences in the borrowed skin, crashes them together, and then morphs into what she thinks it would look like as an adult.

    The form hesitates between genders for a moment. She... he? Yes, it pretty much has to be a he, is not quite the flaming hawt hotness that Reinholdt manages in every form, and not quite the "if I wasn't a cyborg I'd probably be pretty plain" mundanity that Magtok's genes might lean towards if he hadn't spliced shapeshifting into his clones. Instead, the mix of the two manages to become something wholly its own.

    He's tall, and the presence he exudes only amplifies that even though he doesn't tower over his parents. One of his most eyecatching features is the angular sweep of his chin, which cuts directly across your field of vision like the horizon as he turns to look you in the eye with his dark brown, intense gaze. It's probably a good thing his face is so ruggedly distracting, from the dimpled chin to his perpetual growth of brown stubble. It draws attention away from the fact that he's only wearing the remains of a woefully inadequate two piece woman's swim suit, the top fluttering to the ground as he subtly plants a fist on his hip to prevent a similar malfunction down below.

    His hair sweeps forward over his wrinkled brow, slight bangs hiding the worry from his face. His teeth clench with an audible creak as his entire body tenses against the cold of the fall and the cave. It sounds like he could crush a coconut with the pressure that jaw is exerting.

    Should they dare to take in the rest of his form, they'll see that it's somehow just as impressively masculine as his face. A neck knotted with muscles that would make it as thick as his head were it not for his jaw. Pectorals covered in a mat of short, thick hair and arms used to lifting whole trees up onto the broad expanse of his shoulders. A search for abdominal muscles would be fruitless, because visible abs are a sign of a vain being who commits to exercise merely for the sport of it, and not of necessity. Instead, a strong flat stomach leads down into legs that are strong enough to support this exemplar of ruggedness and the burdens he carries.

    If Paul Bunyan, Bruce Campbell, and Gaston were mixed into a blender and used to make a monster wrestling clone-child, Magtok and Reina's son would likely be taken for his smaller, more handsome twin. They'd likely hold spectator arm wrestling matches on weekends to pay for their bar tabs.

    "It looks kinda like a paler Astir," Magtok remarks with feigned disinterest and cold detachment. Whether that's to send a message to Reina or his actual opinion isn't entirely clear. I mean, Astir had a mouth full of horrible wolf teeth, weirdly large hands, and a rather unique musculature. Still, I suppose the similarities are there, if you look hard enough.

    Magtok, this is the Nexus, and she's Felandria. Nobody has any idea what you're talking about. What the **** is a Sears Tower?

    "Yeah, that'll work. I'll need a big suit thing or something just to be more than a speck, though, but I've already got that sorted out."

    Sweet.

    I figure we check my basic motor functions first, reflexes and such.

    Then once all that's done, we can see how I do with my suit.

    We'll need to go somewhere unpopulated, obviously.

I don't tend to wear much jewlery." At the moment she is only wearing a small golden ring with a blue stone on one of her hands. A matching necklace left at home since it really didn't go with her black hole dress. "It certintantly was nice of him to think of you." Angie says thinking Astrana is a lucky girl.

    [Monster Mash - Valente, Astrana, and Angie]

    Astrana shakes her head with amusement. "Val, I'll pay all the rent this month. Don't worry about that. I have so much money saved up it won't make a difference anyway." She rarely bought anything but food or paid the rent with her salary. "But maybe we shouldn't give him too much compliments, it might go to his head." She teases her boyfriend, very gently tapping Angie's arm with her elbow.

    Reina looks Reintok over. And again.
    "It looks nothing like a giant wolf corpse and I don't see how you'd ever even draw that conclusion." Reina replies to Magtok.

    "Our... well he has a lot more... ahem... muscles than I'd have expected." Not that that's a bad thing, as Reina looks him over again. "Obviously takes after his mother. That's very impressive work." Maybe a bit too impressive. Wow.

    She makes sure to look him over one last time to burn the image in her mind before it disappears.

    Angels We Have Heard on High

    "Oh hell if I know, I'm just a worthless mortal." Magtok! Bad cyborg! No swearing in front of angels!

    "Does it matter? Dark or light, I'm still in the shadow of something greater, aren't I? Others have their conversions to and from light and darkness. I just sort of...wobble. Nothing so extreme, I just make decisions, and hope I can live with them after."

    Cat Got Your Son?

    "I didn't say giant wolf corpse, I said Astir. As in, yet another menacing, magically flawless superman figure. Another statuesque skull-cracker charming those too ignorant to see him for what he really is, like Prince Kaelaroth Maschin of Magtok-Armennia." Wow, Magtok. I had no idea you'd actually bothered to remember the full name and title of that guy. Hell, I didn't even think you'd paid any attention at all back in the Waves plot. I don't think the prince was quite so villainous until Reinholdt wound up plagiarizing the guy's body, though.

    Angie chuckles and nods in agreement with Astrana. "Oh yeah you are probably right. There are enough big egos in the room without adding another one to it." Angie doesn't give much indication who she is talking about. If Angie had to tell the truth she honestly isn't speaking of any one person her. Large egos tend to be more common then lesbians in the Nexus.

    [Must be talking to an Angel]

    "A god would be nothing without his worthless mortals, Magtok. Don't sell yourself short." Ithuriel leans back and folds her arms, her cloak billowing around her as the mist swirls around her feet, "Now where has all this negativity come from, hmm? All of this is smoke and mirrors, I have done nothing to demonstrate that I am remotely superior to you...so why claim, even sarcastically, that you're in the shadow of something greater?"

    Nothing wrong with swearing in front of this angel, you know.

    "I've been to both extremes, bounced between them multiple times. I envy you, if you just wobble in the middle. Neither extreme is really all that pleasant."
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Strangers passing in the street,
    By chance two separate glances meet.
    And I am you, and what I see is me.

Holding the bag out so that Aequitus could drop it in, she quietly lamented that there was only one to examine. More samples meant more accurate data or at least the ability to draw a better average. Still, it wasn't as if she couldn't at least get general information from it. She's just need to be extra careful.

    "Any handling information I should know about with these things?" she asked, her mind already putting together a few ideas on where to start. "Also, you said that you didn't have the time.. Just what is it like if you don't have the opportunity to run tests or something like this?" she inquired. So far, her curiosity was keeping a potential flood of babble at bay although given that this was the MagCave where her main workstation was located, it might just be a matter of time until she would head off to beguin with her testing... In any case, the techno-paladin would probably note her barely surpressed giggling as she kept an eye on Misha's stunt and the aftermath.

    Aequitus is silent for a few moments before he commands his helmet to open up, revealing his handsome face that's currently marred with distant sadness. "We didn't have time because we were constantly under siege and lacked the technology to do so. We didn't know enough about the dragons to be able to risk their innate...I believe the term is Malware here? That's why their screech was so damaging. We never experienced such before. We had no Firewalls or Protectors or Anti-Virals. How could we risk hooking up a Heart Core when we were in the fledgling stages of such techniques?"

    "Our... well he has a lot more... ahem... muscles than I'd have expected." Not that that's a bad thing, as Reina looks him over again. "Obviously takes after his mother. That's very impressive work." Maybe a bit too impressive. Wow.

    She makes sure to look him over one last time to burn the image in her mind before it disappears.

    "I didn't say giant wolf corpse, I said Astir. As in, yet another menacing, magically flawless superman figure. Another statuesque skull-cracker charming those too ignorant to see him for what he really is, like Prince Kaelaroth Maschin of Magtok-Armennia." Wow, Magtok. I had no idea you'd actually bothered to remember the full name and title of that guy. Hell, I didn't even think you'd paid any attention at all back in the Waves plot. I don't think the prince was quite so villainous until Reinholdt wound up plagiarizing the guy's body, though.

    The man's form wavers for a few seconds and then collapses into water, which quickly reforms as Misha with one arm held tightly over her chest as she bends over to pick up her bikini top. She looks around, hoping no one has noticed her wardrobe malfunction beyond her audience of two.

    "I don't suppose you have a changing room I could use? It'd be quick." She kind of needs both hands to tie the top's string back together, and her bottoms could do with a touch up as well after the strain they were put through.

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    Perhaps it was the wine but Riss managed to be much more accepting of this sort of thing than she normally was. Then again, if the technology was based in closed source OS and tightly controlled. The muse could see at least a potential for that sort of enviornment. It even seemed to have a few perks in it's own way as that was less time spent in the eternal cyber arms race and more time spent actually furthering creative pursuits. "I see.. So it was out of prudence which is admirable in it's own way. At least here I should be able to handle whatever it might have in store for us." she said, holding up the bag so as to look at the core in the light.

    "So you said-" Riss paused for a moment to watch Misha put on a show of shapeshifting into some quite attractive male before faking a quick cough and continuing. "Sorry. Something about not having the time? Could you tell me more? About all of it, I mean. Was there only one settlement or was this a very decentralized sort of force that could appear and fade without warning?" she asked; clearly interested but seemingly only in the academic sort of way rather than on a personal level. She also motioned for him to follow as she began slowly making her way towards the side apertures of the room along a path that would take the pair of them by Judge-tok, Misha, and Reina.

    Aequitus looks like he's about to start talking, but stops when he starts to walk after Riss. After a moment more he continues. "Less prudence and more practicality. By the time we had even one of these we'd lost three quarters of our territories." He admits sadly with a shake of his head. "As to the rest, it's a long story and best told elsewhere while seated. It'd only spoil the mood for the partiers here, but if you have someplace else you wish to talk, that's fine with me."

    [Monster Mash - Misha Malfunction]

    Riss stopped by one of the tables along the way which had no occupants and grabbed the ends of the tablecloth. "Been wanting to try this.. Stand back a little just in case I scew this up, though." she said before giving the cloth a sharp jerk. The result was some shaking cups and one nearly toppling but, over all, a decently clean performance. "I'm thinking we could do two things at once while we're at it. You did say you wanted to know about the cores, right?" she said, draping the cloth over her non mechanical arm and continuing along at a rather steady pace.

    It was her intention to try and toss the tablecloth around her neriad as a makeshift sort of cloak so as to add a bit more covering than half of a bikini. She didn't plan to stick around for much longer than that aside from passing along a quick message, though, what with this being a short stop on the way to her lab. In any case, with a "Here you go." said with a half smile, Misha might find a suitable stand in for a robe being wrapped around her shoulders in short order. That, however, would be followed up with a rather businesslike "Sir." which would be accompanied by an equally sober nod towards the cyborg and Reina.

    Aequitus nods towards the others as he walks with Riss. "That'd be fine." He mentions to his guide, continuing on unless stopped.

    Well, I can shapeshift, but I'm not a succubus.
