    Default The Glass Citadel II

    On the edge of reality, bordering somehow both the universe of Town and that of GLoG/HALO/AMEN, there is a single stereotypical cliffside, shrouded in eternal night, a silvery moon shining, frozen in its fully visible state.
    Upon that cliffside stands tall a citadel, its surface mirrored and made of tempered glass which tosses about moonlight in every direction.

    The grounds include a full cemetery, some graves unmarked, and an expansive garden, though one has to wonder how anything grows there, considering as the villainess who resides in the citadel somehow made it eternal night.

    Welcome to the home of Rabbit Vasque, necromantic villainess extraordinaire. Please don't hurt the zombie puppies.

    Notes: The Glass Citadel is sentient, and capable of shifting itself to its whims, as well as being incapable to take damage.
    If you attempt to attack the structure itself, time will reset itself back a few moments.

    I wonder if I kicked the building, would I be set in an eternal loop in time?

    Antony stumbles upon the Glass Citidel by shear accident. Instead of knocking the door, he just stares at the building thinking the word "first".

    And, at that point, a giant blob of nesquick powder came falling down, at lightening speed, towards Antony.

    A blob of nesquick powder?

    Antony is powdered, yet very confused as how it might be a blob of powder. In any case, he changes into another set of clothes, stripping on the spot. No, he's still not cold from the dire winter. Tossing the old clothes away, they melt into ink, leaving a black stain on the snow. The mark is soon lost to the snow. "That be terro. Me favouite suit, gone like a grue in the light." Now changed, he walks to the front door of the Glass Citadel, and knocks. Hackysack is on his shoulder all of a sudden.

    The swarm burns and falls to the ground, dead, for the most part, but Rasskhazz vanishes from sight, reappearing behind Rainholdt and trying to grab him by the neck.

    I will turn you into an eggsack and watch the new spawn eat you from inside for killing my children.

    As for Turtle.

    Epoch! Take this ungrateful human wench from my sight before she compromises our orders any further!

    This would be when Harbinger Epoch walks out of the floor before turtle, as if he were walking a flight of stairs.

    Rasskhazz will miss by mere centimeters as Reinholdt dashes behind Happyturtle. If he wasn't a cat, he probably would have been caught. But Reinholdt also knows when he's been outclassed.

    "I'm sorry Happy." Reinholdt puts his rifle at the back Happy's head. "NO ONE MOVE! You need her unharmed? Then you'll BACK OFF! I see one wrong movement and I'll blast her brains! No spells either!"

    Turtle has several shapeshifter tricks for dealing with someone holding a gun to her head. But she doesn't use any of them.

    "Do what you have to do," Turtle says. She holds her own gun in both hands, not yet pointed at anyone, but ready to use.

    Rasskhazz and Epoch would look wide-eyed, but alas. She lacks eyelids to wide, and he lacks flesh to have eyelids.

    A moment later, Rasskhazz erupts in a horrible, chittering laugher as she proceeds to heal her own wounds again.

    Oh yes. Do us this favor, our orders are not to kill her, no one ever said anything about protecting her life. Hmm... Maybe with her dead that girl will be angered enough to ask us to end this all! Come on, DO IT!

    She's dead serious. Epoch merely stands there, doing nothing, his face is far too featureless for me to describe anything like a smirk or whatever.

    "I think you're bluffing." Reinholdt pushes the gun a little closer. "Rabbit is just as likely to stop dealing with you, and you need her to do so to operate at your full capacity, don't you? Not to mention, you said, and I quote, 'Take this ungrateful human wench from my sight before she compromises our orders any further!'. You need her to complete your orders. And your master would be SO very unhappy if his orders were incomplete, wouldn't he? And you fear the master far more than me. So I'll say again, BACK OFF." At this point he's wondering how long it'll be before Happy can act on her own again.

    Am I?

    Rasskhazz takes a step closer.

    Perhaps my orders were merely to heal her illness, and then to avoid killing her in person. Perhaps nothing we do has anything to do with this girl. Perhaps her untimely death at your hands will result in her goddess saving her life, or her mate reviving her. Either way, our hands don't get dirty with her filthy blood. But mine will be drenched in yours.

    Make no mistake, His Darkness could care less about the lives of a few godspawn. We are just not supposed to kill a few of you, for now.

    Well Reinholdt was going to bluff some more about believing Rasskhazz to be bluffing to stall for more time, but Turtle got things going, so Reinholdt will swivel the gun at Rasskhazz and fire more shots at her, if for nothing else, but to slow her down some.

    "FIGHT IT TURTLE! RUN!"

    Lex ought to be able to hear the shots and the yelling pretty easily I would imagine.

    Epoch is incorporeal, so he just stands there was the bullets get stuck in his null time field.

    The idiocy of your kind never ceases to amuse me.

    Epoch steps forward, imposing said field upon turtle's space.

    Meanwhile, Rasskhazz gets shot again, now in her guts, and bends over from the impact.

    A-kreesh!

    Whatever she said, she didn't sound nice.

    Oh, and vines erupt from the ground around Reinholdt, like the Entangle spell.

    Reinholdt seems to be having trouble with vines. He's squirmy, but they're stronger. As he claws and bites at them in a desperate attempt to get free, he notices Lex. He points at Happy. "Help Happy! Get her out of here!" He resumes trying to tear the vines away from him before it's too late.

    Reinholdt finally manages to break free of the vines and scamper to one side of the hall, away from Rasskhazz and Epoch. He quickly pulls out his clip and starts fumbling with some ammo. He seems to be trying to load a special bullet or two.

    Epoch warps space-time inside his null time field, dragging those stuck in his aura to Rabbit's presence, in the temple of Amour I suppose.

    No time to play, no time to stay.

    The above would mean Reinholdt is left alone with Rasskhazz. Who turns around and makes The Slow Walk towards Reinholdt.

    Now, cat. I am tired of this pea-shooter of yours.

    Epoch disappearing would make those bullets designed to hurt incorporeal beings rather useless. Of course how useful they'd be against a time thing would be difficult to gauge at best.

    All this is made rather moot, though, as Reinholdt's rifle shatters in his paws. With a blank stare on his face, he looks down at the empty space where his rifle used to be, at the pieces of his favorite rifle on the floor, at Rasskhazz, and finally at the empty space where Happy used to be.

    Reinholdt breaks into a bittersweet half-smile. "I'm sorry Happy. It seems I've failed to fix it all in the end. But there are others to carry on. I guess I'll just have to settle for the partial victory."

    He turns to face Rasskhazz. "It's a shame we ended up on opposite sides. It sounds like Draken has similar goals. All the same, I don't think I could help you, the way you go about it." He waits for her move.

    What you are, by itself, places us in opposite sides, godspawned wretch.

    Now, to fulfill my threat.


    Rasskhazz will now attempt to grab Reinholdt by the neck and stab his gut with a stinger at the tip of a segmented tentacle thing from her back.

    Success with the sting will be painful, and will inject Reinholdt with a number of eggs of those aberrant wasps.

    Reinholdt does not move when Rasskhazz grabs him, the half-smirk never leaving his face.

    Of course, that quickly changed to a look of utter pain as the stinger slid into his abdomen. "Guh!" He tries not to squirm too much knowing it would only hurt worse. He doesn't say anything else, though, instead choosing to simply glare with contempt.

    Rasskhazz pulls the stinger out, and throws Reinholdt aside, towards a wall.

    I will enjoy watching the larva eat their way out of you when they hatch in a few hours.

    The segmented tentacle hides again underneath her mantle, after wiping some blood off the tip.

    I heard that there is no pain to the females of you mammals like that of birth. I suppose you will find out now, hmm?

    Rasskhazz pulls the chair she was sitting on before, the thing still drenched in the blood of her human disguise, and sits to wait.

    *Whump! Thud!* Into the wall he goes and onto the floor soon after. Doesn't even try to land on his feet. Slowly he picks himself up, still smarting from the wounds he's taken, some blood trickling down his leg.

    He looks up at Rasskhazz, and gives a great big grin. "Once again, you forget." He whips out a cigarette case and flips it open. "I HAVE BOND GADGETS!" Using a small spell, he lights them all at once. He grins waiting for the big boom.

    Of course, he's pretty crestfallen when it doesn't happen. Turns out they were just cigarettes. He puts the case on the floor, hanging his head some.

    And there he stays, choosing to let the hours pass.

    Reinholdt keeps his head down, ignoring Rasskhazz, just staring at the broken pieces of his rifle. Soon the eggs start to hatch. Slowly at first. He bites his lip at the pain but holds it down, not wanting to give her the satisfaction.

    Yet, more and more, the eggs hatch. Quickly the larva attack Reinholdt's innards, devastating him from the inside out. A gasp escapes his lips, then a moan, then a cry as his very squishy organs become digested food for the swarm. Only a cough interrupts the pain, as larva start pouring out of Reinholdt's mouth.

    Then? Then it becomes a caterwauling wail that only a feline can make. Larva begin to pour out of every orifice, even as they make new ones. Soon, Reinholdt collapses, no longer capable of screaming as his lungs are ripped apart. Covered in a white mass of living, squirming organisms, he closes his eyelids even as the larva chew through and fall out of the sockets.

    And then Reinholdt just stops.
