    Mist sets about slicing at the ropes with a pair of knives that are in his hands now. As the hobbit charges him, his first instinct is to duck under the swing of the bat and kick him hard in the groin.
    Mist will at least attempt to not kill people at the first sign of danger.

    Slice, snap! A rope or two goes down, and the ship realizes that it's time to try to go.

    However, that's not the best idea, Mist. Hobbits are short! You'll have to duck very far, and your kick won't have much leverage at all.
    The little cultist swivels, drops his bat, and grabs at Mist's leg, screaming at the top of his lungs. How dare Mist play a song like that?! How dare he try to just leave!? How dare he have hopes and dreams and imagine that he could ever have real friends?! What outrageous arrogance.

    Meanwhile, Mei is killing people with wild abandon despite not being in any real danger. Her ship is being threatened, Mist reminded her how powerful she is, and it just comes naturally to a dragon. CHOMP! and a cultist is gone. A swipe of the claws and another rope is gone.

    There's a taller one, bug-eyed and top-heavy, who is waving his feathery hands at Mist and Mei and intoning some sort of spell. A curse?

    Okay, sympathy gone. Mist plunges his knife down towards the cultistís chest, kicking him if his stab lands and loosens his grip.

    If Mist gets away heíll be focusing on getting to the hatch before the ship decides to leave and slicing more ropes along the way. He doesnít get into open fights that often and isnít really in a state to be watching for meddling mages. Maybe Mei will get that one.

    The cultist's grip loosens in shock as the knife sinks into his chest.
    Mist kicks him while he's down, and then is free.

    One of the cut ropes allows the ship to twist and turn, striking the meddling mage with its tail and sending him crashing into a market stall.
    The two cultists working at the hatch turn to face Mist. One raises a crowbar, the other hurls what seems to be an overlarge soap bubble towards our fox.

    With them distracted, Mei tears loose the last ropes.

    Mist hurls his left knife at the bubble, and maybe its thrower if the bubble doesnít deflect it.
    Mist pounces on the other mans with his right knife in hand, feinting left in anticipation of the swinging crowbar and striking from the right side.

    Ruth tries the switch, then the latch, looking in if it opens to try and determine how safe it is. Then she'd stand aside and let Sophie enter. "When we're done, this room would make a good storage room, I'd say."

    The knife and soap bubble collide!
    Most likely, both of them vanish into thin air.

    The crowbar swings in the expected path-
    Mei dives past the two and into the ship, shrinking down a bit as the vessel rises a foot off the ground.
    "Get in, Mist!"
    -the knife carves a long shallow cut into the cultist, glitter spilling from the wound.

    Mist grunts, kicking at the cultist and shifting into his more nimble, swift, and difficult-to-catch fox shape, sprinting out towards the hatch and leaping inside before the ship can take off without him.
    He has seen what happens when he gets caught. Maybe. Not really what he'd like.

    The cultist sidesteps the kick, hefts the crowbar again, and -
    Mist really is hard to catch there, isn't he? The next swing doesn't even get close to hitting his tail.

    As the fox hops inside, the ship's hatch closes up, and they lift away from the market (where it looks like a perturbed shopkeeper is advancing on the cultists).

    Mist flops own onto the cool floor of the ship, panting.
    "Is- is that it? Are we good? All clear?" he asks between breaths. He hasn't been in a brawl in a while. Good to see that he's still got it, mostly. He only lost one knife in all of that.

    Mei doesn't seem to be tired at all.
    "I think we're good. Right?"
    The ship makes no obvious response, but Mei seems to consider that an affirmation.

    They zoom up into the light. Mist will probably slide along the floor and/or flop against the wall.

    "You did alright back there."

    Mist is shaken by the sudden acceleration and is forced to switch back to his usual shape to avoid being thrown around.

    Aww. A fox sliding around under sudden acceleration would have been so cute!
    "Oh, uh, thanks. Fighting's really not my thing at all, but I am pretty strong, and tough, and magical I suppose."
    They pass the last leering tower, and slip and slide in between the celestial objects slowly approaching the Sultana.
    There's not actually any real danger of running into them. Mei just likes making all the turns. A way to chill after the battle.

    There are storage rooms littered around already. They passed one that Sophie's been in near the Ultimate Chimera. They're... not particularly hygienic though. This room is probably more so just on default.

    Since the room is quite bare. And quite bright since the light switch is on. In fact, that seems to not just be the defining feature of the room, but the only feature in this room. A series of multiple lights positioned in such a way that nothing in the room goes unlit. Not a single shadow can be found in this room, even when they step inside.

    If they flip the switch back off, then the lights go out and maybe their eyes don't hurt as much, but otherwise... nothing. What an unusual waste of space.

    Ruth might be surprised to see Sophie's face contort with disgust and fury.

    "This... is where Xeyal tortured Sasha," she says slowly. "She lives in shadows and is hurt by bright light, so he put her in a room with nothing but bright light to punish her. She was terrified of being put here if she disobeyed him."

    The ship straightens out its course.
    "Oh, yeah. We can speed up as soon as we're clear of the Sultana's wake, in a couple minutes."
    "Now, hmm, what's your favorite color, Mist?"

    Ruth isn't surprised at Sophie's understandable human reaction. At her age, she's gotten over the shock of the depths some beings' inner darkness goes, but her empathy has not dimished one bit. "Then we must be doubly thankful of the fact that he is dead. One look at that poor Chimera makes it evident he was a monster." She says calmly, tears falling down her eyes, though she doesn't acknowledge them in any way. "I pledge to do all I can to help Sasha heal." She looks up at the lights for a bit. "If Sasha wishes to never see this area again, then I suppose this room has too many bulbs." She says, hinting at a little cathartic bulb smashing, which would achieve little more than darkening the place and making one feel better.

    Sophie shakes her head, breathing deeply.

    "Let's not spend more time than we have to. And bringing Sasha back here probably won't be wise in any event. Let's keep moving."

    She will keep retracing their steps but turn to as of yet unexplored parts of the laboratory instead of heading for the exit.

    The rest of the lab is much easier to deal with than what's come before. It's still a mess, granted, but a more mundane kind. There's some imprisoned local species that haven't been spliced yet they can free without concern. A fair number of bodies of the less fortunate. And those four other chimeras Ruth noticed.

    The first is the graceful triceragon. A beargon triceratops.

    The second is a unique one even for the doctor as he doesn't usually get involved with plants. But the dryantelope is a free roaming quadruped dryad.

    The third is something called a Magler. Some kind of catboy cyborg? Probably should just put it down.

    The fourth is... missing? The cage is broken and the chimera is no where to be found. Searching for it supernaturally seems to yield no results. It must have escaped into the caves through the broken front door. The underground system is naturally protected against extrasensory probes, a large reason why Doctor Xeyal chose this place as his lab in the first place.

    Regardless, one less thing to worry about. Once they decide how to deal with the three remaining abominations of science, the lab will be clear for retrofitting or destruction.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that, Mist. Just looking at the stars without the city lights in the way can have a great effect on people. And here you are looking at a big chunk of a galaxy without even the air to get in your way. Try not to think about it.

    But it should be a quiet trip back to the DFI...

    The first is the graceful triceragon. A beargon triceratops.

    The second is a unique one even for the doctor as he doesn't usually get involved with plants. But the dryantelope is a free roaming quadruped dryad.

    The third is something called a Magler. Some kind of catboy cyborg? Probably should just put it down.

    The fourth is... missing? The cage is broken and the chimera is no where to be found. Searching for it supernaturally seems to yield no results. It must have escaped into the caves through the broken front door. The underground system is naturally protected against extrasensory probes, a large reason why Doctor Xeyal chose this place as his lab in the first place.

    Regardless, one less thing to worry about. Once they decide how to deal with the three remaining abominations of science, the lab will be clear for retrofitting or destruction.

    "I see imprisoned species we can free, bodies of Xeyal's victims, and 3 chimeras. There should be a fourth, but I see it nowhere. With this amount of power I put into my sight..." Ruth trails off, looking around, at the ceiling, the ground and the sides, then seems to shrug. "We should free the creatures remaining to be freed, and the 3 poor creatures abominably experimented on. It would depend on their size, intelligence and potential danger, but I say we should still attempt to communicate with them, Sophie. For starters."

    You only need a few good friends in life; and you absolutely stick by them no matter what.

    I don't use the registry on this site, ask me if you need more info about my charries.

    [Substation XRay]



    Local shepherds call the mountain "the place of the witches' sabbath" or "the place of the witch's sabbath", depending on which side they live on and how much of a grudge they have against a specific woman they can pretend is the specific witch. The twin peaks rise into the sky and command attention. The Royal Clandestine Agency built their black site on a modest hill a little bit away from this mountain, so that it would be easily overlooked. A barbed wire fence surrounds the area, but a motorized gate at the road in has been battered down by something wanting quick access. Reinholdt, Blanche, and Callie arrive to investigate why the Substation put an alarm out and then went silent. They find that XRay has been hidden among some medieval looking stone ruins.



    The road leads up to the largest tower and what used to be a reinforced garage door set in one side. The tower bears other signs of modern use: electrical flood lights on the other sides and a grove of antennae sprouting from the roof. The only sign of life in the exterior of the black site is a truck-sized animal that looks like a rhinoceros with a horn shaped like a battering ram. It's currently pushing against one of the unoccupied towers, digging in its large hooves and inching forward until the whole thing topples over with a clatter. At the same time, a surge of divine magic on the mountain draws Callie's attention (and possibly the attention of everyone sensitive to magic for miles around). A flash of green light should catch Reinholdt and Blanche's attention too just in time for them to see the sky open up and bombard the peak on the left with fire and lightning. A second later a black line slashes out from Mother Nature's target, catching the other peak at an angle from its top left to halfway down its right side. A cloud of dislodged snow disrupts the view, but it soon becomes clear that the entire cap of stone is sliding off the peak. Before the sound of the avalanche reaches them, they will see the once proud feature cut down to size. Some Goddess has murderously masectomized the mountain.

    Callie swears once, voice shaken with awe and fear, and then starts sprinting to the central tower as if every second she spends out of cover is another invitation for the dueling deities to take notice of her. Like the beast notices her. It starts lumbering after the foxy terrorist and if the sniper and the medic don't stop it from building up speed it will catch her before she can escape inside.

    In hiding. Always hiding.

    Well the gate being wrecked indicates bad, but Rein didn't quite expect the bad to escalate so quickly. Large beast, yikes. Tower falling, oh no! Mountains exploding. Well, they just stepped right in it, didn't they? One of the Vulpans pissed off the wrong person this time. It was most unsettling. And loud.

    "Wait Callie! Stick together! Dammit." She's got the right idea to get inside, but top speed and alone is not the way to do it. Reinholdt follows her for a bit before noticing that they've already been noticed. He swears again, skidding to a stop as he pulls out an elephant gun. He wasn't expecting to have to deal with an organic tank right away. Kneeling, he checks the gun out as quickly as he can, not having to fire one in a very, very long time. He's not satisfied with his inspection, but he's out of time too, so he lines up a shot and fire, trying to catch the beast in the legs.
