  58. >You looked at him with wide eyes
  59. >"What's wrong son?" He walked towards you. "Are you alright?"
  60. >You were unable to answer for a few seconds
  61. >Then you noticed the increasing worry on his face
  62. >He couldn't know, atleast not then
  63. >So you had to act quick before he gets more suspicious
  64. >You suddenly hugged him
  65. "I just missed you dad." You said with a faked cheerful voice. "Welcome home."

  84. >You are talking to Flash in the hallway
  85. "Here's the exam questions." You pass the paper to him.
  86. >"Awesome man, you really did it!" He cheers.
  87. "You paid for it, I did it. Easy." Something comes to your mind. "Listen, don't get A+, okay?"
  88. >"Why not man? I got all the questions."
  89. "You almost failed history last time, Flash." You make your point. "If you get an A+ now it'll be suspicious."
  90. >He frowns. "I guess you're right. Fine, I'll try and get a B or something."
  91. "Alright," you shake his hand. "Nice doing bussiness with you. See you 'round."
  92. >"See ya, bro." He says as you walk towards cafeteria.
  93. >You got fifty bucks from that exam paper and this was really easy for you.
  94. >There is so much potential in this... powers.
  95. >You get your lunch and look for a table
  96. >As you are about to go for an empty one you see Vinyl waving at you, beside her sits the violinist girl with black hair, Octavia.
  97. >You go to their table and take a seat
  98. "Hey, Vinyl. Hey Octavia."
  99. >"Good afternoon Anonymous." Octavia speaks as Vinyl just smiles.
  100. "How're you guys doing?"
  101. >"I am doing well, thank you." Octavia says. "I've finally managed to play the piece I am practicing flawlessly."
  102. >Vinyl does some hand signs that Octavia translates for you
  103. >"She says she will be working as a DJ at a party at Club Vendigo this Saturday." Vinyl does some more signs. "She says she got two VIP tickets for the party and that we are invited."
  104. "Sure," You say. "I'm not doing anything else."
  105. >Vinyl looks at Octavia for an answer.
  106. >"Vinyl, you know I do not enjoy parties." She starts.
  107. >Vinyl makes a begging sign with her hand.
  108. >"...Vinyl, I..."
  109. >Puppy eyes (sunglasses) intensifies
  110. >Octavia sighs. "Alright, fine. I suppose I could come and stay for some of your... beats."
  111. >Vinyl claps her hands and hugs Octavia with a huge grin on her face
  112. "Heh" You laugh, earning a stare from Octavia
  113. >You don't notice though as you wonder how it would sound if Vinyl could talk
  114. **She could
  115. >These power may be more valuable than you thought
  116. >You focus on how to make Vinyl talk again
  117. **Non lethal stab wound must be inflicted on Sunset Shimmer's left leg before Friday arrives
  118. >What?! No!
  119. >There must be another way
  120. >Focus
  121. **Detonate a bomb across Club Vendigo during the party
  122. >That's even worse!
  123. >Octavia breakes your thought process
  124. >"Anonymous are you alright? You look troubled."
  125. >No kidding! If you want your best friend to be able to talk you need to stab someone in school
  126. "No, it's... It's nothing I'm alright." You say half-heartedly.
  127. >Vinyl makes some hand signs
  128. >"She wants you to know that you can talk to us about anything, anytime." She translate. "And I agree."
  129. >That brings a smile to your face
  130. >Still, you can't tell them that there is a way for Vinyl to talk and that it is to put a knife through Sunset
  131. **Any sharp object will suffice as long as they go deeper than 2.8 centimeters
  132. >You ignore the extra input of your sixth sense and keep your smile
  133. "Thanks guys. I'll be sure to take you up on that in the future."
  134. >Your thoughts return to getting her Vinyl voice as you continue eating
  135. >Stabbing and bombing...
  136. >You need to look up other options
  138. >After school
  139. >You are walking home, still focused on how to be less destructive about making Vinyl able to talk
  140. >While some other solutions you came up with was similar to the others, some included far worse things
  141. >You could shoot Sunset instead of stabbing or kill one of her friends as an alternative
  142. >As if that's a real alternative
  143. >Inflicting Sunset with a head trauma was among the choices
  144. >Crashing a vehicle bigger than a Mini Cooper into Club Vendigo during the party
  145. >List went on but not in the way you wanted
  146. >You realized a while ago that all these choices were revolving around Sunset and, more importantly, Club Vendigo's party
  147. >Whatever bullshit that will make Vinyl able to speak was going to happen during the party
  148. >If you choose to make it happen that is
  149. >The options are clear
  150. >There is no way you are killing someone
  151. >Which means you will not risk any lives either
  152. >You want Vinyl to talk but not if it costs people's lives
  153. >You know she wouldn't want that to happen
  154. >Would she stab someone to be able to talk?
  155. >Probably not
  156. >She definitely wouldn't want you to do it
  157. >How would you stab Sunset anyway?
  158. >You are not sure you could do such thing and even if you did, you will definitely get cought
  159. **Go to the alleyway across the pawnshop at 136th and 3rd at 11 PM
  160. >Well, now you know how to stab Sunset
  161. >After dinner you've made your mind about things
  162. >It was simple really
  163. >Stab wound would heal and Vinyl would be able to talk
  164. >So you sneak out of the house at 10 PM wearing a hoodie and taking a kitchen knife with you
  165. >It was a long was to 136th and 3rd so better to leave early
  166. >You walk past the tall buildings and fancy restaurants, reaching to suburbs
  167. >You walk with a quick pace as the anxiety drives your heart to beat faster
  168. >You check your phone's navigation once again
  169. >You've though of getting a cab, but the place was likely to be a crime scene tomorrow
  170. >So you didn't want to give any possible connection to the police
  171. >It should be right around the corner
  172. >You can see the alleyway
  173. >Your pace quickens
  174. >As soon as you turn the corner however you come to a halt
  175. >There are four guys in the alleyway
  176. >You cannot do it when they are here
  177. >You should try again some time later
  178. >You turn to leave but one of them calls to you
  179. >"Yo! Who the fuck are you?!"
  180. >You turn around slowly
  181. "No one, I was just uh... just passing through." You speak, as every muscle in your body tenses. "Didn't mean to bother anyone."
  182. >The guy tilts his head and eyes you from top to bottom.
  183. >He's wearing a black t-shirt with a ring on his right middle finger
  184. >"Haven't seen you here before." He points at you. "What's with the hoodie?"
  185. "Nothing, I'm just cold." He stares at you for a few seconds. "I should go." You start to turn around.
  186. >"HEY!" You look at back at the man. "Why don't you lend me some money, huh?"
  187. >Shit
  188. "I don't have anything on me." You really don't. It's not like you were going shopping.
  189. >He pulls out a switch blade and starts walking towards you
  190. >"I just wanna be sure ab-" You just pulled out your kitchen knife
  191. >Shit x2
  192. >"Oh man, it's not everyday you see a punk with a kitchen knife." He laughs as his friends join him. "You piss me off."
  193. "Just, stay back!" Your voice trembles. "I don't want any trouble!"
  194. >"You know, I'd ram that thing up your ass but I'm in a good mood." He throws the swicthblade to the side and pulls out a gun. "I'm just gonna beat the shit out of you. Lose the knife."
  195. >You hesitate
  196. >He fires the gun, aiming to the wall right next to you
  197. >"NOW!"
  198. >The sound of the gunshot was enough to make you drop the knife
  199. >He pops right in front of you before you can recover and you don't even see his left fist coming to connect with your face
  200. >You feel it on the other side of your head like your brain wants to pop out
  201. >You fall to the ground and raise your hands in front of your face
  202. >He climbs on top of you
  203. >This time he comes in with a right hook
  204. >The pain you felt before pales in comparison as you feel his ring impact your cheekbone
  205. >He lands another left and your vision starts to get blurry
  206. >Last thing you see is his ring coming towards you again, reflecting the light from street lamps
  207. >Everything goes dark
  208. >Be Sunny S.
  209. >Yeah, nope. Where did that even come from?
  210. >Be Sunset
  211. >Right now you are patroling the streets with your Spider Woman costume on
  212. >Why?
  213. >Because you are Spider Woman
  214. >It's been uneventful lately
  215. >You were expecting some super powered enemies when they recuited you to S.H.I.E.L.D
  216. >It looks like they were watching you since the day you came through the portal. but they never contacted you until you got bitten by a genetically engineered super-spider
  217. >Long story
  218. >After a brief introduction and some tests to be sure that you will not become some genetically altered hyperdimentional human-pony-spider monster they left you alone to live your life
  219. >Oh yeah, and you got a S.H.I.E.L.D I.D card
  220. >Neat
  221. >With the effects of those superheroes you've been seeing on the news you decided; why not me?
  222. >So now here you are, wearing a red ski mask, some jeans and a black turtleneck jumper
  223. >Yep, that's your costume
  224. >Sound of a distant gunshot interrupts your thoughts
  225. >"Oh boy, here we go." You say, swinging a web to the building across
  226. >Hopefully you can make it before someone dies, if it didn't happen already
  227. >As you got to the crime scene you see some thugs, standing around someone who is laying on the floor motionless
  228. >Looks like you are too late to save whoever it was
  229. >The least you can do now is to catch those responsible
  230. >"Dipshit was telling the truth." One of the men speaks. "There is no money here."
  231. >"Atleast we got the phone." Another cuts in.
  232. >"Let's get outta here before police arrives, someone must've heard the gunshot."
  233. "Sorry, boys. You aren't going anywhere." You jump on top of them from the 3rd floor of a building and land a kick on his face as one of them looks up to see you
  234. >Thanks to all that momentum, he is knocked out cold
  235. >The other three will require a little more work
  236. >You see the gun that was probably fired before aiming at your face
  237. >As you move your head to the right and spring forward towards the gunman, bullet lefts the barrel
  238. >You hear the bullet whiz through, almost hitting your ear
  239. >Your adrenaline spikes
  240. >Grabbing the gunman from his shoulders you somersault above him and throw him to the wall
  241. >As he hist the wall you duck to avoid a punch, but as you do that other guy lands a kick near your kidney
  242. >You avoid falling head first with a well-timed flip and jump up, clingint to a wall
  243. >The guy that you threw is squirming on the ground, trying to get up but failing miserably
  244. >The guy that tried to punch you goes for the gun
  245. *Thwip*
  246. >You glue the gun to the floor before he can get to it
  247. >He step back. "You know what? I'm outta here!"
  248. >He starts running but you won't let him get away that easy
  249. "I told you, you're not going anywhere." You catch him with a web and pull him, making him fall on his back
  250. *Thwip* *Thwip*
  251. >You glue his arms to the ground and turn to the last guy
  252. >While you were busy with the runner, he found a kitchen knife from somewhere
  253. >Not that it matters too much
  254. >You throw a web, catching the knife in his hand and pull it out of his grasp
  255. >He is looking at the knife flying away from him as you jump on to him
  256. >It only takes one good punch to the dome, he sprawls on the floor
  257. >You sigh as the adrenaline dies down, finally done with the thugs
  258. **Jump!
  259. >You pupils dilate as you sense an impending danger
  260. >You flung around to see the thug you threw to the wall swinging a switchblade down towards your chest
  261. >You jump back to avoid the knife
  262. >It barely touches your jumper
  263. >Guy that attacks you, not expecting this miss and being injured, loses his balance
  264. >He falls forward face first as the knife plunges into your left leg
  265. >You cry out in pain and fall on your back
  266. >The knife is still in your leg
  267. >You are about to grab the knife to pull it out when you notice your attacker starting to get up again
  268. >You try to get back on your feet but the jolting pain from your leg sends you back down to the ground
  269. >"Got you now, bitch!" He calls out to you before getting on top of you
  270. >You scream at you feel the knife being pulled out of your leg
  271. >Then you see the knife coming down to your face
  272. >You grab him by the wrist and push the knife back easily, being stronger than him
  273. >At first he looks surprised at your strength but his face gets cowered in anger right after that
  274. >He pressed his knee onto the stab wound on your leg
  275. >You arms give way as you scream once again, but you manage to stop him before he plunges the knife into your eye
  276. >He keeps pushing the knife down as he continues to put more weight on your leg
  277. >Increasing pain keeps you from being able to use your full strength as the knife gets closer and closer to your face
  278. >As more and more adrenaline is pumped through your veins with each passing second you can hear your heart thumping in your ears
  279. >You know he is still pressing his knee on your leg but there is no pain anymore
  280. >Finally, survival instinct kicks in
  281. >You close your eyes and let out a war cry as you focus all the strength you can muster to push the man back
  282. >He's sent flying across the street, landing on his back
  283. >You get up on your feet, the fact that you were stabbed already gone from your mind
  284. >You walk towards the man who's also on his feet
  285. >He once again runs at you, swinging his fist
  286. >You catch his hand and squeeze a little too hard, feeling his bones crack
  287. >He screams and falls on his knees, holding his broken hand with the other
  288. >You punch him in the face, hard
  289. >Finally he goes down, unconcious
  290. >You look around to see if there is anyone else attacking you, but everyone seems to be downed
  291. >This time as the adrenaline dies down, you feel really tired
  292. >You just sit on the floor, breathing heavily
  293. >The pain in your leg slowly returns as you calm down
  294. >You let out a little laugh, but then you remember about the guy who was shot
  295. >You get up, grimacing in pain, and walk towards the victim
  296. >As you get closer, you get a better look on his face
  297. >Though it was pretty beat up, you feel like you recognize this face
  298. >You sit down to get a better look, afraid that you may have just witnessed someone you know die
  299. >You can't quite make it up who he is but you realize that he's still breathing
  300. "Oh, thank Celestia!" You mumble.
  301. >Sound of police cars start to fill your ears
  302. >You should go, to a hospital
  303. >You would take the guy with you but you aren't sure if you can do it with your busted leg
  304. >In any case, police should handle the rest
  305. >Once again you get up and take a few steps, limping, before spinning a web and pulling yourself up
  306. >You open your eyes
  307. >For a second you can't remember who you are
  308. >Anonymous, that's it
  309. >Where is this?
  310. >A familiar scent hits you
  311. >Hospital
  312. >Why are you in a hospital?
  313. >"Oh, thank God! You're awake!" You turn your head to see who's speaking
  314. >It's your mother
  315. "Hey, mom." You try to smile but your face hurts. "What's going on?"
  316. >Her eyes are bloodshot
  317. "Were you crying?"
  318. >She grabs your hand and pulls it to her lips for a kiss
  319. >"They said they've found you laying in an alley." She cups your cheek with her other hand. "All beat up." She sobs. "What were you doing there?"
  320. >I was going to stab a friend but some thugs mugged me
  321. >Isn't the best answer
  322. "I... I don't remember. Some guy wanted money and I didn't have any. I think he jumped me."
  323. >She looks at you, worried. "Why were you out at night? You didn't say anything! Are you in trouble?"
  324. "No, mom. I'm okay, everything is fine." She doesn't seem to believe you. "I promise mom. I just wanted to see the city at night." You let out a short, fake laugh. "I guess it was a bad idea."
  325. >Your mom joing you for a moment but then she frowns again.
  326. >"W-when they called I... I thought you..." She shakes her head
  327. >You feel your eyes sting
  328. "I'm okay mom, I'm okay." You take her hand and squeeze. "It's all fine." She nods and hug you.
  329. >"They said they want to keep you over night, to be sure you don't have any trauma." She combs your hair with her fingers. "I'll be right here, if you need anything just tell me."
  330. >You smile, despite the pain
  331. "Thanks, mom, but you should go home. I know you have a hearing tomorrow. You should get some rest."
  332. >She shakes her head. "Not before I make sure you are okay. You are more important than a hearing."
  333. >You sigh
  334. "I'm sorry, mom." She looks confused. "I didn't want to cause all this... distress."
  335. >"It's not your fault." You ignore the words save for a small smile.
  336. "You are busy enough as it is." You look her in the eyes. "I don't want to burden you further. So please, go home? Get some rest?"
  337. >She looks at you for a while, thinking
  338. >"That was a good speech." She says
  339. "My mother is a lawyer." She let out a genuine laugh.
  340. >You feel a little lighter at heart
  341. >She bends down and gives you a kiss on the forehead. "I love you."
  342. "I love you too."
  343. >After she left, you stare at the ceiling, thoughts running through your mind.
  344. >You failed at stabbing Sunset, got beat up and made your mother cry
  345. >You let out a defeated sigh
  346. "Could've been worse I guess." You mumble.
  347. >"Hello son, can we ask you some questions?"
  348. >You turn to see two police officers standing beside your hospital bed
  349. >Looks like you were right
  350. >It is worse
  351. >Be Sunsun
  352. >Where are these weird names coming from?
  353. >Be Sunset
  354. >It's almost midnight when you walk inside your apartment building
  355. >Atleast Mr Ditkovich should be asleep so he won't bother you about the rent
  356. >You got some stitches from your visit to the hospital
  357. >Not surprising as it seens that knife was also moved vertically downwards after being plunged into you
  358. >You made up a story about falling while holding a knife
  359. >They didn't seem to believe you but didn't bother investigating further either
  360. >It's not like you were the only one in the emergency room
  361. >They were busy with other stuff
  362. >You grimace a little as your stitches strech while you start walking up the stairs
  363. >You are supposed to go visit the hospital every two days so they can clean the wound and replace your bandages
  364. >They weren't really gentle while cleaning it the first time
  365. >So you are expecting some more pain on your next visit
  366. >You see a pyrex tray on your doorstep with a note on it as you reach to the door of your apartment
  367. >You carefully bend down, not wanting to strecth your stitches again, and pick up the tray
  368. >You force the door open, it was stuck as always, and enter your tiny home
  369. >You leave the tray on your nightstand and pick up the note
  370. >"I made too many brownies so I tough you might want some." -Ursula
  371. >That's your breakfast taken care of, maybe lunch too
  372. >You flip the paper
  373. >"You're running late on rent again."
  374. >There is no name attached, not like it needs to be
  375. >You sigh and lie down on you bed
  376. >Your mind wonders back to tonights events
  377. >You only hope that the guy you saved, kinda, was okay
  378. >You're pretty sure you've seen him in school before
  379. >Your mind slowly gets clouded as you try to remember who he might be
  380. >Sleep takes you to it's soft embrace
  382. >Be Anonymous
  383. >You are back home
  384. >They let you go this afternoon after making sure there wasn't any complications with your health
  385. >Your mother picked you up and drove you back home
  386. >You are alone right now
  387. >She had to go back to work as usual
  388. >Your father called you and asked how you were, apologizing for not being with you
  389. >You told him it was okay, you're okay
  390. >You know he has a lot on his plate
  391. >He comes home rarely and even then he is really tired, goes to sleep after a short time
  392. >You do wish he was around more, if for nothing else so that he could help your mom with some of the housework
  393. >You help her when she needs, but you aren't very good except for following directions
  394. >Nevertheless you know yor father loves you, both of you
  395. >Doorbell breaks your chain of though
  396. >You've ordered some pizza
  397. >It should be them
  398. >You go downstairs and open the door
  399. >Yep, pizza arrived
  400. >You pay for it out of your allowance
  401. >Hard to call it that though
  402. >If there is one thing that you haven't been short of in your life up to this point it is money
  403. >If you ask your parents for more they always give you more
  404. >They trust you to not throw it on meaningless things
  405. >You know it is hard earned
  406. >In the expense of your time with your parents
  407. >So you are careful not to just waste it
  408. >You go back upstairs with your pizza and sit back in front of your computer
  409. >Rimworld, the game you've been playing lately
  410. >Since there is no school for you today, you figured you can waste your time on that
  411. >You eat your pizza as you watch ant-sized people run around in your colony, occasionally interrupting their routine for things you deemed more important
  412. >Some time later you get bored of that and star watching videos on youtube
  413. >Before you know it, you waste the whole day on your computer
  414. >Doorbell, again
  415. >This time you don't know who it might be
  416. >You go downstairs and open the door
  417. >A blue haired girl with sunglasses meets you
  418. >She waves her hand and smiles, that is until she sees your face
  419. >She gasps
  420. >"Whau aa uua!" Even tries to say something
  421. "I'm okay Vinyl don't worry." You try to calm her down.
  422. >She shakes her head, pulls out her phone and types something, then shows it to you
  423. >"You are not okay! What happened?"
  424. >You sigh and step aside, inviting her in
  425. >She walks in as you start to explain
  426. "I got mugged, nothing too bad happened." You guide her to the living room. "Police said they've found the guys who did this knocked out, laying in the same alley they mugged me. Apperantly someone got them before they could leave."
  427. >She types something on her phone again
  428. >"Who?" She takes a seat on the couch and you sit next to her.
  429. "Dunno, some gang business maybe. In the end, they didn't manage to steal anything." You smirk. "Except my handsome face."
  430. >She snorts, then types again
  431. >"Does your face hurt?"
  432. "Yeah, but doctors said the pain should subside in a cuople of days."
  433. >She seems sad. "I'm sorry this happened to you, must've been awful."
  434. "It was scary, but I'm fine now, just a little bruised." You decide to change the subject. "What brings you here?"
  435. >"You didn't show up, so I came to see if you were alright. Octavia wanted to come too but she had violin practice." You smile.
  436. "Thanks Vinyl." You look at her for a moment. "We can hang out if you aren't busy?"
  437. >She nods and starts typing. "Yeah lets do it. Hope you got someting to eat."
  438. "We can order some pizza?"
  439. >She raises her hands above her head with a celebratory pose
  440. >You chuckle
  441. "I'm pretty sure that means yes."
  443. >Be Sunny Bunny
  444. >Goddammit
  445. >Be Sunset
  446. >Your first day at school with your new stitches on your leg went relatively well
  447. >Girls did ask why you were grimacing at times
  448. >You just told them you've hurt you knee and it hurts sometimes
  449. >You are lucky that PE was Tuesday, so you were stabbed after that
  450. >Still, you will probably not heal by the next week, but you couldn't tell them you were stabbed
  451. >Well, you could but you didn't want to worry them
  452. >This superhero thing is hard enough without having to listen them lecturing you
  453. >You should come up with an excuse for next week though
  454. >You could ask the PE Teacher to excuse you from class maybe
  455. >You will think about it when the time comes
  456. >For now you just want to be able to stop walking
  457. >Not that it hurts too much but having that stinging sensetion with every step is starting to annoy you
  458. >You are gonna need to take a day or two off of your superhero duties
  459. >Wouldn't want the wound to open again while fighting someone
  460. >Then it will never heal
  461. >You arrive to your apartment building and quietly open the door
  462. >You don't want Mr Ditkovich to hear you
  463. >You go up the stairs as silently as you can
  464. >You've memorized which steps make noise when you step on them
  465. >Skipping them with your hurt leg proves difficult however as your leg reflexively comes down on to the step you were trying to avoid
  466. >"Ms Shimmer? Do you have my rent yet?" He opens the door to his apartment
  467. >You hate getting stabbed
  468. "I-I'm sorry Mr Ditkovich, sir. I'll have my payment from the cafe this weekend and I'll pay you, I promise." He looks at you with narrow eyes
  469. >"You better." Then he goes inside.
  470. >You sigh as you continue your way up
  471. >Atleast now you aren't worried about making sound
  472. >You make your way to your door and push the key in
  473. >You unlock the door but as always you have to ram it with your shoulder a couple of times to open it
  474. >You are about to walk inside as you hear the door to your landlord's apartment open again
  475. >"Hey Sunset." You hear a timid voice calling your name and turn around to see the landlord's daughter, Ursula.
  476. >She has a half empty garbage bag in her hand
  477. "Hey." You say, slightly raising your hand as if you were waving
  478. >"I was just taking the trash out, good thing I ran into you." You smile and nod. There is an awkwarkness hanging in the air. "D-Did you like it?"
  479. >You look at her for a second with confusion in your eyes
  480. >"Brownies, I mean. Not the garbage... ahem-"
  481. >You almost facepalm, how could you forget the brownies?
  482. "Yeah, yeah, it was delicious. Thank you."
  483. >"You are welcome." She looks at you with a big smile on her face. "Y-You can tell me if you want more."
  484. "I will." You smile back.
  485. >You to just stand there looking at each other for a few seconds, then she points towards the stair
  486. >"I should go and uh... dump this? See you around."
  487. "Yeah, see you." Again, you raise your hand a little
  488. >"Bye!" She says as she decends the stairs
  489. "Bye." You close the door and go inside.
  490. >What a weird girl
  492. >Be Sombra Morbius
  493. >You are a S.H.I.E.L.D scientist
  494. >Right now you are working on some blood sample they gave you
  495. >Apperantly somehow, someone managed to merge their DNA with a spider DNA
  496. >They want you to analyze it and figure out how this came to happen
  497. >There is a problem though
  498. >You have mapped the human and spider genome in the blood already, but there is some unknown material in the combined DNA
  499. >It seems to act as a binding agent between two different genomes, but you suspect that it also might be responsible for binding them in a specific way so that it doesn't cause random mutations
  500. >Afterall, according to the information they gave you, owner of this DNA had no change in their apperiance
  501. >Getting exposed to a mutagen and being mutated in a constractive way is astronomically unlikely
  502. >However, if you are right about this, this material could be a game changer
  503. >You have to figure out how it works
  504. >Right now you are looking at the blood sample under a microscope
  505. >Which doesn't tell you much of anything really
  506. >You did have this new scanner thing that you never got the chance of using
  507. >You pour the blood sample into a petri dish and put it under the scanner
  508. >You turn it on
  509. >Woah! Shiny. So much so you are worried it might temper with the sample
  510. >A screeching noise distracts you
  511. >You turn towards the cage where you keep your bats, different research
  512. "What's that? Is it too bright for you?" You ask. "I suppose I could take the cage to a darker place."
  513. >You turn off the machine for now and grab the cage, earning more bickering and screeching
  514. "Yes, yes. I'll let you sleep." You start walking only to be stopped by a table leg, connecting with your foot
  515. >You stumble and lose your grip on the cage
  516. >Suddenly, bats are everywhere
  517. "Oh, no." Yeah, you can't catch them.
  518. >You follow them flying a little, thinking of what to do
  519. >One of them lands near the petri dish with the blood sample in it
  520. >It will drink the blood
  521. >Damn vampire bats!
  522. >You rush towards it but by the time you got there bat already took a few sips
  523. >You wave your hand to scare the bat away
  524. "Shoo! Shoo bat! Bad boy!" Bat takes flight.
  525. >Towards you face, screeching agressively
  526. >You put your hands between the bat and your face
  527. >You feel a scratch and a stinging pain in your hand
  528. "AH! SHIT!" Bat, maybe startled by your shouting, flies away
  529. >You check your hand to see some bite marks with a little bit of blood oozing out from the punctures
  530. >There is more important matters however, like keeping the blood sample out of bats' reach
  531. >You grab the petri dish and put it in a cupboard, then you reach for the intercom
  532. "Hello? This is Doctor Sombra. I need some help here, bats have escaped."
  533. >After calling for help you lean onone of the tables and wait, looking at the bite wounds
  534. >You're gonna be getting a rabies vaccine for this, probably
  535. >You hate needles
  536. >You went home that night after getting a rabies shot
  537. >You really really hate needles
  538. >Even thinking about it makes your skin crawl
  539. >How you become to experiment on animals and such is truly a mistery with all the "needling" involved in the job
  540. >Still, you don't feel very good
  541. >You feel really tired and a little dizzy
  542. >You should sit down maybe
  543. >As you walk towards the couch in your living room you feel your legs weaken
  544. >Just a few more steps
  545. >Everything seems hazy
  546. >The ground is tilting
  547. >Weird
  548. >It's dark...
  549. ___
  550. >You wake up to your phone ringing in the morning
  551. >It seems like you are laying in the middle of your living room, with your daily clothes, just a step away from...
  552. >You blacked out! You remember
  553. >Maybe it was the rabies vaccine?
  554. >Your phone rings again and you pick it up
  555. "Yes, hello?" You answer
  556. >"Mister Morbius? I am calling from the patisserie, your order is ready, would you like us to deliver it to your home?"
  557. >That would be S.H.I.E.L.D
  558. >You check the clock on your wall
  559. >It seems you are late without notice
  560. >They are asking you if you need rescue
  561. "Yes, please, that would be lovely."
  562. >If you were being held hostage in your house, your captors wouldn't want anyone to come home, right?
  563. >So if you say no, they dispatch a team to retrieve you
  564. >Yes is the answer for "everything is fine"
  565. >"Very well, nice doing bussiness with you."
  566. >The phone hangs up
  567. >You will recieve some cake today
  568. >S.H.I.E.L.D is really meticulous about not raising suspicion
  569. >You should be heading to the lab now
  570. >If you don't they will send a team anyway
  571. >You grab an apple from the fridge on your way out
  572. >Breakfast will be rushed today
  573. >You take a bite as you run downstairs
  574. >Walking to the edge of the sidewalk, you signal for a cab
  575. >You arrive at the lab quickly, since you slept through the morning rush hour
  576. >Still, it was enough time to finish eating your apple
  577. >You toss the remains into a bin and go inside the building
  578. >"Hey Sombra, late are we?" That would be the security
  579. "Yeah, I uh... kinda blacked out last night, must've been really tired chasing all that bats and whatnot." He looks worried
  580. >"You should've taken a leave. It can't be good for you to come straight to work after that." You smile and wave your hand dismissively
  581. "Don't worry I feel fine now. Happens to th--- Ugh!"
  582. >A sudden stomach cramp makes you curl in pain
  583. >You slowly get on your knees as you try to catch your breath
  584. >There is a hand on your shoulder, it's the security guard
  585. >"Are you alright, do you need a medic?" Talking seems hard so you just shake your head and gesture him to calm down
  586. >You start to get up but sudden contraction of your gullet stops you half way
  587. >You gag as you get support from the guard to not fall back down
  588. >Again and again
  589. >Until the apple comes pouring back onto the ground
  590. >You feel very weak now
  591. >Guard guides you to his chair and helps you sit down
  592. "Sorry about the mess." You apologize
  593. >"Don't worry about that! What happened to you?" You grimace a little as you catch your breath
  594. "I guess it really wasn't a good idea to come straight back here." You look at him. "Thanks."
  595. >"No problem, not like I was gonna just watch you puke your brains out." He looks at you for a moment. "I think you should go back home or maybe even a hospital. Let me call you a ride, yeah?"
  596. "Yeah." You nod. "I should let the department know." He gently pushes you down as you try to get up.
  597. >"You just rest, I'll let them know what happened.
  598. >You smile and nod, closing your eyes with a sigh
  599. >Such a good guy
  600. >After going back home you tried to eat some light meal in the hopes of not throwing it up
  601. >It didn't work
  602. >Even liquid stuff won't stay down
  603. >Only water
  604. >You decide to wait it out until the evening
  605. >It looks like a really nasty stomach cold
  606. >Probably because you slept face first on the ground whole night
  607. >Speaking of sleeping, maybe a little bit of sleep might do you some good
  608. >In your actual bed this tiime
  610. >Be Anonymous
  611. >It is Friday morning
  612. >It's been lesser part of two days since to got your ass kicked in the alleyway you went to stab Sunset
  613. >You have failed your mission
  614. >You were supposed to stab her before Friday so Vinyl could speak
  615. >Also it is the day you are going back to school
  616. >Most of the swelling on your face died down but it still hurts if you move too many muscles
  617. >You don't mind it as much as all the stares you are getting right now though
  618. >Everyone is whipering to each other
  619. >You sigh as you try and ignore them
  620. >There will be some interesting rumors going about for a while
  621. >"Anonymous! Sweet heavens you look horrible!" Your eyes turn towards to source of the voice, Octavia. "Mpft!"
  622. >She gets elbowed by Vinyl, some hand signs follow
  623. >"My uh... apologies Anonymous, I meant to ask if you were doing alright." You chuckle
  624. "Yeah, I'm okay. Just don't make me laugh too much, my face hurts."
  625. >Vinyl makes some signs
  626. >"She makes no promises Anonymous." You give Vinyl a fake glare
  627. "I'll avenge this."
  628. >Which in turn earns you a slightly sticked out tongue and an amused look
  629. >You smile. She is still your cheerful friend, with or without speaking
  631. >Be Sun Tzu
  632. >This is getting stupid
  633. >Be Sunset
  634. >Some kid with a pretty beat up face just walked pass you
  635. >You are pretty sure it's the guy in the alleyway
  636. >Nice to see him up and about
  637. >Takes all the pain of those stitches
  638. >They stretch again as you take a reckless step
  639. >Nope! It doesn't.
  640. >Still, it makes you happy knowing you helped someone
  641. >You limp towards your locker with a goofy smile
  642. >Maybe you should check on him? Make sure he is okay
  643. >He seems okay but good friends support each other in hard times right?
  644. >Yeah, Twilight would call this a good friendship lesson!
  645. >You should definitely check on him
  646. >At lunch break maybe, since you are not familiar with his schedule
  647. >You pack your books and head for your class
  648. >Lunch break comes rather quickly since biology is a subject you actually enjoy and literature is not so bad
  649. >You always had a good time reading books
  650. >Not as much as Twilight though that's for sure
  651. >You walk in the Cafeteria and look around to see if the guy from this morning is around
  652. >He seems like he didn't arrived yet
  653. >Some of your friends, Rainbow and Pinkie, is here though
  654. >So you take your lunch and head for the table they are sitting
  655. >They look rather excited about something
  656. "Hey girls." You greet them. "What are you talking about?"
  657. >"That Anon guy abviously!" Rainbow answers
  658. "Anon?"
  659. >"You know, the guy that got beat up!" So his name is Anon
  660. >"I should get him some cake or maybe baloons." Pinkie says with a sad voice. "It looks like he was hurt really bad."
  661. >"I heard he participates in street fights!" Rainbow jumps in
  662. "Now that, is ridiculous." Is your response to that
  663. >"Uh! Uh! Maybe he got in a high stake match so he could get himself a car and impress her girlfriend, but he didn't get the money and his uncle got killed!"
  664. >You both look at Pinkie, bewildered
  665. >"What?"
  666. "What?"
  667. >"We should ask him though if we really want to know the story." Pinkie points towards the Cafeteria entrance
  668. >It's the guy from this morning, Anon
  669. >He is walking with two girls, one of them is talking with hand signs
  670. >You remember her, she helped you with the Dazzlings thing
  671. >They walk towards the lunch queue
  672. "Good idea Pinkie, I'll go talk to him." You get up and walk towards Anon
  674. >Be Anonymous
  675. >You are at the end of the lunch queue waiting for Vinyl and Octavia
  676. >As you've suspected some rumors have started circulating
  677. >Like you are a gang member and shit
  678. >You rather stay away from the situation
  679. >Something you say might make the rumors worse and very little of what you say can make them better
  680. >You feel someone touch your shoulder and turn around to see Sunset
  681. >"Hey, Anon right?" She asks
  682. "Y-yeah, uh hi." Why is she talking to you? "And you are..."
  683. >Why did you ask you know who she is! Everyone does!
  684. >"Oh, I guess we aren't very close." She rubs the back of her head, then reaches for a handshake. "I'm Sunset, Sunset Shimmer."
  685. >You balance the lunch tray on your left hand for a moment and shake her hand
  686. >Her hand is really soft
  687. >Mental *Ahem*
  688. "Nice to meet you Sunset, how can I help you?" Seems like the situation worked itself out
  689. >"Oh, I just saw you this morning all... bruised. So I just wanted to ask how you were doing." That's nice of her
  690. "I'm alright, thanks for asking." You give an awkward chuckle. "Just, you know, aesthethically unplesant to look at."
  691. >"Oh, I wouldn't say that."
  692. >Did she just...
  693. >She is blushing now. "I- I mean-" You can feel yourself blushing aswell.
  694. >You suddenly find the lunch tray very interesting
  695. >"I was gonna say it's good to hear you are alright. Okay, bye!" She turns around and quickly walks away from you, limping
  696. >Wait, why is she limping?
  697. >Is it possible that she actually got stabbed in her leg?
  698. >You should find out if she did... somehow
  699. >You feel a little nudge on your side
  700. >It's Vinyl with a shit eating grin
  701. >She puts her tray on the lunch counter for a second and make some hand signs
  702. >You look at Octavia, who looks at Vinyl with a shocked expression, her face is a little flushed
  703. >Vinyl moves her head in your direction, indicating that she wants Octavia to translate
  704. >"I will not say such thing!" She hastely walks past you. "Let's just find somewhere to sit."
  705. >You look back at Vinyl
  706. >She wiggles her eyebrows
  707. >You shake your head with annoyance and follow after Octavia
  708. >Vinyl's not gonna let this go anytime soon.
  710. >>28969919
  711. >After school you are walking home with Octavia
  712. >Vinyl went to Club Vendigo to check up on the sound equipment for tomorrow's party
  713. >Which you and Octavia are invited as VIPs
  714. >You've never been a VIP in anywhere before and you would be curious about it if it was not for the fact that it was the day
  715. >The day Vinyl will speak, if your powers are to be trusted
  716. >So you are pretty nervous about it
  717. >Itmust be showing too, because it caught Octavia's attention
  718. >"Is something wrong Anonymous? You look rather... pensive."
  719. "I was just thinking about Vinyl." That was a vauge answer, you probably should have been more explainatory because-
  720. >"What do you mean?"
  721. >-of this, it will take the conversation further than you'd like
  722. >You are sailing on shallow waters now
  723. >You should try to avoid suspicion, even if she will probably not expect you to have... powers
  724. "I just realized I've never asked... uh... why she's... Well, you know."
  725. >"Mute?" She frowns.
  726. "Yeah." You answer reluctantly.
  727. >Her steps slow down
  728. >Gloom is almost palpable
  729. >"She wanted to be a singer, you know? She had a beautiful voice, even at that age."
  730. "So she wasn't born like this?"
  731. >Her face offers a woeful smile.
  732. >"We were seven years old I think, it was my birthday and after the celebration her parents came to our house pick her up." She continues.
  733. >"Our parents were close friends and we spent a lot of time together. I'd play my violin and she'd sing to the tune." A nostalgic scene is painted in your head.
  734. >"We did that for my birthday too, everyone loved it." She sighs. "I didn't ask her, but I think that was the last time she sang."
  735. >"They said a truck driver fell asleep on the wheel and crashed into their car. The front of the car was crushed under the truck."
  736. >You are just listening at this point, nothing to say really
  737. >"Vinyl was sitting in the back so they got her out quick but it took them four hours to reach her parents."
  738. >"They were already dead, crushed by the impact and truck's weight."
  739. >"Vinyl hit her head in the crash. Her skull was cracked and apperantly a piece of it was stuck to her brain."
  740. >"She went under a long surgery and they managed to get the piece out. They kept her in a medically induced coma for a month.
  741. >"To prevent her from moving until her brain tissue and membranes around it heals properly."
  742. >Despite all that, when she woke up, she couldn't control the muscles around her mouth and eyes properly."
  743. >There are tears in her eyes now, you feel yours sting aswell.
  744. >"She didn't have any close relatives so my parents took her in. She used to have nightmares, about the crash, her parents, so we slept together."
  745. >"It didn't help much with the nightmares but it helped with the crying. She fell asleep quicker after the nightmares."
  746. >...
  747. >You realize she went silent a while ago
  748. >You are standing in front of her house
  749. >Her and Vinyl's
  750. >Words come to you after a minute or so
  751. "Thank you, for telling me." She nods.
  752. >"I trust you won't bring it up around her."
  753. "Of course."
  754. >She pulls out her keys and unlocks the door to her house. "See you at the party tomorrow."
  755. "Yeah, see you." She goes inside and closes the door.
  756. >You stand there for a moment before start walking to your home.
  758. >Be Octavia
  759. >It's been a little late and you are laying in your bed now
  760. >You've been thinking about Anonymous
  761. >About how you told him about Vinyl, to be specific
  762. >You wanted to be sure that he doesn't ask about this about Vinyl, but in doing so you might have told him a bit too much
  763. >Hopefully he will keep being the Anonymous he always have been and will not behave in any awkward manner
  764. >You trust him, but...
  765. *sigh*
  766. >You roll around to your other side
  767. >Your thought turn to Vinyl
  768. >She didn't come to dinner
  769. >It shouldn't take that long to take care of some sound system, right?
  770. >Maybe there was something wrong with it
  771. >Your mother left some food on the table for Vinyl
  772. >They never stopped Vinyl from doing what she wanted, as long as she doesn't do anything wrong and doesn't go around without telling where she is
  773. >So it isn't a problem for her to come home late as long as she lets them know what she's doing
  774. >Same goes for you too, but you haven't really been the type of person to... do things Vinyl do
  775. >You hear the a key turn
  776. >It must be Vinyl
  777. >You check the time on your phone
  778. >It's almost midnight
  779. >She'll probably eat before going to sleep, if she goes to sleep
  780. >She has a bad habit to stay awake late at night, especially if she doesn't have to go to school the next day
  781. >You hear the TV turn on for a second, then she turns the volume down
  782. >You decide to go down stairs
  783. >She hears you walking down the stair and turns to look
  784. >She's sitting on the couch with a plate full of mashed potatoes
  785. >"Did I wake you?" Her hands sign
  786. "No, I was awake. Heard you come in and decided to come down." You plop down beside her. "What're you watching?"
  787. >"Some shit about cowboys? I don't know. Wanna watch together?"
  788. "I did come down, might aswell." She crawls towards you, you raise your arm to allow her to lean on your side and put your arm around her shoulders
  789. >She takes a spoon of mashed potatoes and turns to look at you, holding the spoon close to your mouth
  790. >You open your mouth and allow her to feed you
  791. >She then turns back towards the screen and eats some herself
  792. >She tries to give you some more but you refuse
  793. "I already ate you just go ahead." She doesn't try to give you anymore after that
  794. >You two keep watching the movie until she finishes her meal
  795. >She then gets up and puts the plate in kitchen sink
  796. >You get up from the couch and turn off the TV, then walk upstairs with Vinyl following you
  797. >You turn towards your room
  798. "Good night, Vinyl." She signs you good night.
  799. >Laying down in your bed once again, you close your eyes
  800. >You're almost asleep when you hear the door to your room open
  801. >You look towards the sound, it's Vinyl
  802. >Shuffling to the side of the bed, you make room for her to climb in
  803. >She lays down next to you, looking at you, her eyes twitching occasionally
  804. >You smile and give her a kiss on the forehead, then tuck her hair behind her ear
  805. >She goes under the covers and contently nestles into your bosom as you wrap your arms around her
  806. >You feel her hands move, making some signs
  807. >You don't need to see them, you know what she's saying
  808. >You caress her hair as you speak
  809. "I love you too."
  811. >Be Morbius
  812. >You've just tried eating something and threw up yet again
  813. >It's been a day and a half since you've been able to eat anything
  814. >Finally, you have reached a new point
  815. >The thought of eating or drinking anything else then water makes you nauseus
  816. >Something is very wrong with you and you are definitely sure it's more than just a stomach cold
  817. >In any case you should clean up after throwing up on the floor
  818. >You open the lights to of your bathroom and immediately cover your eyes
  819. >It is so bright, like the Sun
  820. >Something must be wrong with the lights
  821. >Then again, maybe it is you
  822. >You slowly open your eyes, giving them a chance to adjust
  823. >In the end it still stings but you are able to look around
  824. >You go for the sink and splash some water on your face
  825. >You pick up a towel and dry off, then take a look at yourself on the mirror
  826. >You look unnaturally pale
  827. >Not sickly pale but... dead pale?
  828. >You definitely need a professional treatment
  829. >Cupping your hand to hold some water you wash your mouth to get rid of the foul taste
  830. >You take some more water and gargle to ease the burning of your throat
  831. >It is then something peculiar catches your eye on the mirror
  832. >Fangs
  833. >You have actual, proper fangs
  834. >You spit out the water and open your mouth to take a better look
  835. >They are almost half an inch long and they look really sharp
  836. >You push against the tip of a fang with your thumb
  837. >It immediately stings like a needle
  838. >Retracting your hand, you see a little drop of blood forming aroun the punctred skin
  839. >You bring it to your mouth without much thinking
  840. >The taste explodes into your mouth, almost leaving you breathless
  841. >It is the best thing you've ever tasted
  842. >You immediately take your thumb out as a realization hits you
  843. >You have been bitten by a vampire bat that was feeding on a blood sample that contained some kind of DNA adhesive
  844. "NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NOO!" You run to the kitchen and grab an apple.
  845. >You take a bite but before you could chew on it you start to gag
  846. >Your body rejects it
  847. >Another bite, more gagging
  848. >Again, again, again
  849. >Finally to the point that just looking at it makes you gag
  850. >At that point you put the apple on the table with shaking hands
  851. >Your digestive track must've gone under some changes aswell
  852. >Stomach of a vampire bat is highly under developed, therefore it feeds on blood, an easy to digest substance, with ready for use energy in it
  853. >They do not consume any other food bcause they can't
  854. >You pace around the house, trying to think of something to do, but if there is any solution, it eludes you
  855. "FUCK! FUUUCK!" You kick a chair into the wall
  856. >You need to keep calm as best as you can
  857. >You also need to eat, or rather drink something
  858. >You are starving
  859. >Doorbell rings
  860. >You are not sure if you should open the door
  861. >It rings again
  862. >"Mr. Connor? I've heard some noises and I just wanted to check if you are alright?" It is your neighbor next door
  863. >Connor is the name you use in your daily life
  864. >S.H.I.E.L.D thought Morbius was a rather unique name and that it could be easily traced
  865. >"Mr Connor?" Voice once again calls to you. "Are you alright?"
  866. >You go and answer the door, if she worries too much she could call the police
  867. >In your current situation, if anyone were to be called that would be S.H.I.E.L.D.
  868. >Still you are worried about them too, so for now you are on your own
  869. >Opening the door you speak, trying to reassure her
  870. "I am fine just a little accident is all."
  871. >You hear the sound of a drum
  872. >"It is really dark in there, no surprise you stumbled over something." You turn your head to take a look inside
  873. >It doesn't seem dark at all to you
  874. >Drums again and a... stream?
  875. >You turn towards the sound, towards her
  876. >Her heartbeat, her blood flowing
  877. >You can hear it
  878. >It is so close, just one step away
  879. >Just a bite, a small litt--
  880. >"Mr Connor?" Woman's voice breakes you out of your stupor
  881. >You are really close to her
  882. >Too close
  883. >You back up inside and mumble an apology before shutting the door
  884. >You almost attacked that woman
  885. >Would you kill her?
  886. >You wouldn't but can you trust yourself in your current situation?
  887. >You need to stay away from people
  888. >You turn around, lock the door and the door chain
  889. >Sitting in your couch you try to come to terms with the situation
  890. >Only then, can you focus on finding a solution
  892. >Be Sunset Sarsaparilla
  893. >This shit again...
  894. >Be Sunset Shimmer
  895. >It's Saturday, past noon
  896. >You are at Cafe Black, working
  897. >Today you will get your monthly payment and pay your rent
  898. >Weekend job doesn't pay for much but with tips and rationing the remaining money, it should last you couple weeks after rent
  899. >By working at a homeless shelter, they let you eat there, and with Ursula's almost daily pasteries you will get through the month, as usual
  900. >You really should find a way to properly thank her
  901. >She literally saves you from starvation
  902. >"Excuse me!" That's a customer. You walk to the table
  903. "What would you like sir?" You put on a well practiced fake smile.
  904. >"I want some Chai Tea Latte and a slice of apple pie please" You take note of his order and inform the barista
  905. >It should be out in a few minutes so you turn your attention to the customers, in case they call for you
  906. >"Why are you limping?" You turn back to the barista who is also the owner of the cafe, Cofee Dragee
  907. >You were about to make up some story but you decide against it
  908. >Even Spider-Woman needs to tell her story sometimes
  909. "I got stabbed by some muggers" Not all the story of course
  910. >He looks surprised
  911. >"Woah, didn't expect that. Are you doing alright?"
  912. "Yeah just stings a little when walking, I actually need to get it checked out today. They said they need to change the bandages and make sure the wound doesn't get infected"
  913. >"Leave early today" He suggests "Get some rest. Full day's pay too" He goes for the register and gives you your payment for the month
  914. >You pause for a few seconds, looking at the money
  915. >"Go on kiddo, I will feel bad if you keep working with that leg. If you like working so much, you can work extra hard tomorrow"
  916. "But, will you be okay on your own?" You lightly object
  917. >"I'll be fine. But I need you tomorrow, you know how busy Sundays are" You nod as you take the money
  918. "Thanks Mr Dragee, I'll be here" You smile and make your way to the door
  919. >When you make your stop at the hospital you are surprised to learn that the wound is mostly healed and you no longer need the stitches
  920. >Taking them off is an unplesant experience, but at least now you will not feel the stinging sensation in every step you take
  921. >However you are still limping out of habit at this point
  922. >Well, in time it should be fine
  923. >You pocket your doctor's report
  924. >He wrote down an anti-biotic for you just in case
  925. >You are not to take it unless the wound starts burning
  926. >So you are not going to buy them for now
  927. >Some time later you arrive at your apartment building
  928. >You are about to knock on his door when Mr. Ditkovich opens the door. "Rent?"
  929. >You are pretty sure that 50% of the words he speaks is 'rent'
  930. >Pulling out more than half of your monthly pay, you extend him the money
  931. >He takes it and counts then looks at you. "Here, take five dollar and go buy an icecream or something for keeping your promise."
  932. >Hate it you may, you are actually happy that he gave you five bucks
  933. "Thanks Mr. Ditkovich, have a good day." You say as you take the money
  934. >You turn and rush down the stairs in mild frustration
  935. >Some criminals to bea down would be great right now
  936. >As you go out of the building you don't realize that you dropped the doctor's report while pulling out the rent money from your pocket
  937. >Mr. Ditkovich did and called after you but you were already gone
  938. >Thinking it might be important he took it inside and put it on a table so he can give it to you later
  939. >You spend the day swinging around the city
  940. >There wasn't much action going on which you are greatful for
  941. >Keeps you from having to put much strain on your leg
  942. >So far you've broke up a fight and saved some guy from getting hit by a car
  943. >Feels good to be out helping people again
  944. >You got yourself a couple hotdogs for dinner and sit on the edge of a high building, closer to the suburbs
  945. >Though the hour is closing in on 10 PM so it's a really late dinner
  946. >Watching the city, everything seems so organized
  947. >Peaceful almost, if you didn't know the struggles of living in this world
  948. >You especially like the traffic at night
  949. >Little specs of light moving about...
  950. >You have to admit today was a rather nice day
  951. >Taking a bite from your hotdog you keep watching the city with a smile
  952. >Back at home you wouldn't even imagine eating an animal but this is delicious
  953. >Heh
  955. >Be Ursula Ditkovich
  956. >You've found a piece of paper on the table
  957. >A doctor's report, for Sunset with some anti-biotics
  958. >Apperantly she was wounded on her leg!
  959. >Poor girl, it must've been painful
  960. >You should do something to make her happy
  961. >She always likes your cookies and thanks you and smiles with that beautiful eyes so happily...
  962. *Ahem*
  963. >Yes cookies
  964. >You go to the kitchen and open a cupboard to get some flour
  965. >There is no flour
  966. >You used the last remaining flour on the brownies
  967. "Daddy! I'm going out to get some flour for cookies!"
  968. >He comes into the kitchen with his pajamas
  969. >"It's late, you stay in home. Get your flour later, it is time to sleep now." He always goes to sleep early
  970. "But dad, I wanna make cookies for Sunset, she was hurt!" You object.
  971. >"You can make your cookies tomorrow." He says firmly. "Girls shouldn't be out at this hour."
  972. "Fine..." You pout
  973. >He comes closer and gives you a kiss on the cheek. "I will go to bed now, don't stay up too late."
  974. "Okay dad, good night." You kinda feel bad now about waiting until he falls asleep to go shopping
  975. >Well, you did ask nicely...
  977. >Be Sombra Morbius
  978. >You are right now sitting in a couch in your living room
  979. >There is a glass of whiskey in your hand that you cannot drink
  980. >You know, with all that restructured digestive system and all
  981. >You feel like the restructuring is still continuing too
  982. >You have developed an extreme sense of hearing along with your increased sight
  983. >There is not a single light in the house that is turned on right now, yet you can see everything clearly
  984. >Your hearing on the other hand...
  985. >You can hear your own heartbeat and blood flow
  986. >You can hear your neighbor watching TV in her house
  987. >When you click your tongue, you are able to sense the objects 360 degrees around you
  988. >Echolocation
  989. >While possible for ordinary people it is near impossible to learn
  990. >However with the bat DNA mixed into yours, it is now a genetic trait for you
  991. >It feels very strange and foreign
  992. >Unlike seeing, you cannot tell exactly what an object is, but you can tell how big and how far it is and whether it's moving or not, if it is moving, how fast and in which direction
  993. >You are also unable to sense objects that are behind an obstacle
  994. >There is no telling how far these changes will go
  995. >Your hope is that it will leave you as a human atleast at apperance
  996. >Seems like it is going well so far in that front
  997. >Except for the fangs which can pass as being a little weird... maybe?
  998. >Speaking of fangs, it has been three days since you last ate
  999. >The bat DNA must've made you more... feral
  1000. >You feel like you might attack people if you were to encounter them
  1001. >But starving yourself is definitely not an option
  1002. >You could call S.H.I.E.L.D. and ask for help, but honestly, you are scared how they might react
  1003. >So you've thought of another option
  1004. >Feeding on animals
  1005. >There are plenty of stray cats and dogs out there and as cruel as it might seem humans eat animals all the time
  1006. >You also may be able to leave them alive after... feeding
  1007. >You grab your head between you hands
  1008. >This is so fucked up
  1009. >But this is survival
  1010. >And until you can come up with a better idea, this is the way it has to be
  1011. >You get up and grab your jacket before unlocking the door and walking out
  1012. >You hope to God you won't have to talk to anyone
  1013. >Because you don't think you can, not without biting their face off
  1015. >Be Anonymous
  1016. >You are at Vendigo Club along with Vinyl and Octavia
  1017. >VIP tickets allows you to sit in a tale right behind the DJ
  1018. >Vinyl said she requested a table to be set up here so she stills gets to hang out with you while doing her job
  1019. >It seemed starnge to you that her employer weren't worried about her slacking, but apperantly she always does this with Octavia and she does a good job with the music
  1020. >Can't argue with that, girl has some sick beats
  1021. >She seems like she's really enjoying it too, almost as if she forgot you two were here
  1022. >Not that you are able to keep focus on that
  1023. >You are really nervous about tonight
  1024. >You have no idea about what will happen, only that somehow Vinyl will be able to talk again
  1025. >Anything can happen at any second
  1026. >Anything
  1027. >"Are you alright Anonymous?" Octavia asks you, yelling over the music. "You look worried."
  1028. "Yeah, yeah." You respond. "I'm fine it's nothing."
  1029. >You take another sip from your drink
  1030. >Non-alcoholic
  1031. >It's sparkling water lemonade
  1032. >Owner of the club doesn't want any trouble
  1033. >Still the drinks are on the house so you have no complains
  1034. >Being VIP is actually kinda neat
  1035. >Only if you could just relax and enjoy it
  1036. >Vinyl turns around and walks up to the table, giving a hand signal to seemingly no one
  1037. >"Ladies and gentlemen, DJ~ Pon-3," You hear an announcer. "She will be back with you shortly
  1038. >Vinyl sits down, she looks a little tired and she's sweaty
  1039. >You can see she loves it though, she looks more excited and happier than ever
  1040. >She makes some hand signs
  1041. >"Oh yes, I am enjoying myself very much. What about you Anonymous?" Octavia asks.
  1042. "I've seen better." You say with a shit eating grin
  1043. >You didn't, but it's fun teasing Vinyl
  1044. >She grins back at you
  1045. >Hand signs
  1046. >Octavia sighs. "She says it's on."
  1047. >Waiter brings some Buck-Up along with a long glass filled with ice
  1048. >It's an energy drink
  1049. >She quickly pours it into the glass and chugs it all down
  1050. >Taking an ice cube in her mouth she gets up and gives another signal
  1051. >"We are back with DJ Pon-3~" Crowd goes wild as Vinyl steps up to the stand and raises her hands to greet the audiance
  1053. >You are Ursula Ditkovich
  1054. >Currently walking around, looking for an open shop
  1055. >It is past 11 PM
  1056. >Maybe your father was right, you should've bought the flour in the morning
  1057. >But you came a long way from home, so you don't want to just give up and go back home
  1058. >You are walking on the opposite side of the road to a night club, you can hear the music from here
  1059. >Club Vendigo
  1060. >You like the music, you should maybe sneak out some time to come here instead of buying flour
  1061. >A grumbling noise coming from an alleyway catches your attention
  1062. >Walking towards the alleyway, you hear a dog, crying
  1063. >Poor thing must be hurt, maybe you can help him
  1064. >As you turn around the corner and follow the voice, coming from behind a garbage container, you see something that makes you question the reality of the situation
  1065. >There is a man, holding the dog in the air while biting into its neck
  1066. >Dog is desperately trying to wiggle itself out the man's grasp, but his hands, holding the dog's back and front legs together, doesn't move an inch as he grunts and breaths heavily
  1067. >You must've fallen asleep in home and now you are having a nightmare
  1068. >This cannot be real
  1069. >Can it?
  1070. >Either way, you need to get away from here before that man sees you
  1071. >You quietly turn around as you listen to the dog's cries
  1072. >There is nothing you can do
  1073. >There is nothing you can do
  1074. >You repeat in you mind as you start walking away
  1075. *Splash*
  1076. >You freeze in place
  1077. >You stepped into a puddle
  1078. >Scared to even look back you pray that he didn't hear you
  1079. >Dog runs past you without stopping, just like you did
  1080. >There is nothing it can do
  1081. >Shaking in fear, you slowly turn around
  1082. >He's walking towards you
  1083. >You see his mouth move, but you can't hear him over your heartbeat
  1084. >Blood is dripping from his chin to his jacket
  1085. >As he steps closer, you take a step back
  1086. >Only to trip on your own leg and fall
  1087. >He walks closer, you can't even move away
  1088. >Your mouth opens as he reaches for you
  1089. "HELP ME! HEEEELP!" Your scream rips through the night
  1091. >You are Thousand Sunny
  1092. >This is not a good time for jokes
  1093. >Because you've just heard a really really desperate scream
  1094. >You are Sunset Shimmer
  1095. >And you are swinging towards the scream as fast as you can
  1096. >As you start hearing some music, a night club comes into the view
  1097. >Club Vendigo
  1098. >"HEE-"
  1099. >Another scream puts you in right direction
  1100. >To an alleyway across the night club
  1101. >There you see a man dragging a woman into the alleyway while trying to cover her mouth
  1102. >Wait, you know her
  1103. >That's Ursula!
  1104. >You fling yourself towards them with you web
  1105. >Your first action should be getting Ursula somewhere safe
  1106. *Thwip*
  1107. >You catch her with your web on the right hand and pull her out of the man's grasp
  1108. >Throwing another web from your left wrist, you attach it onto a building and pull up
  1109. >It must be a really unplesant experience for Ursula
  1110. >She's been screaming her lungs out the whole time
  1111. >But now you got her on the roof and away from that man
  1112. >"No, please. Please, leave me alone!" She is trying to get up on her feet but probably too afraid
  1113. "Hey hey hey, look at me. It's okay, I'm not here to hurt you." You try to calm her down. "You are safe now, but I have to catch the guy that attacked you. Just wait here, alright?"
  1114. >She's still frightened but she gives you a hesitant nod
  1115. >"Good, don't go anywhere." You jump down the building into the alleyway, but the attacker isn't there
  1116. >You sprint to the street and saw him running away
  1117. *Thwip*
  1118. >You spin a web to catch him but he does something you didn't expect
  1119. >He swings around and catches your web before it can latch onto him
  1120. >You two stay like this for a moment, looking at each other with surprise
  1121. >Then you recover and pull him towards you
  1122. >He gets of the ground, flying towards you
  1123. >A second later his face meets your punch and he flies away from you
  1124. >He slowly starts to get up but you will not let him
  1125. >His back is turned
  1126. >You pounce onto him, intending to land a kick in the back of his head
  1127. >He ducks
  1128. >"I do not-" He starts but you cut him off, throwing a punch to his face which he dodges with ease
  1129. >"-want-" He dodges another punch
  1130. >"-to fight." But you were expecting that
  1131. >You keep the momentum from your missed punch and carry it into a roundhouse kick to his side
  1132. >He falls down towards the road and you spin a web to glue him to the ground, catching him on the right hand
  1133. >He tries to rip get free but he can't
  1134. "Don't worry." You say. "There won't be much fighting."
  1135. >He keeps pulling the web
  1136. "Don't waste your energy. That web is- Oh..."
  1137. >He actually broke free by ripping apart your web
  1138. "I guess we're going to play a little."
  1139. >You throw another web but he ducks under it and jumps onto you
  1140. >You jump up, press on his shoulders and send him thumbling down on the road
  1141. "Leap frog!"
  1142. >He jumps right back up
  1143. >This time he just runs toward you
  1144. >You somersault above him and throw a web to catch him on the back
  1145. >Instead he turns around and catches your web
  1146. >Was he expecting it?
  1147. >Not leaving you much time to think, he pulls you towards him and punches you in the face
  1148. >You spin around and fall on your face
  1149. "Nice move." You say sarcastically while getting up
  1150. >"Learned it from you"
  1151. >Cheeky
  1152. >He doesn't follow up with another attack so you decide to go this time
  1153. >You spin another web which he catches as you expected
  1154. >He pulls onto it, but you already let go
  1155. >Expecting more mass to pull, he loses his balance and you kick him in the guts, sending him crashing into a car
  1156. >It actually caves in and the man falls to the ground
  1157. >You definitely broke some bones there
  1158. >Hopefully he's not injured too bad
  1159. >He starts moving again
  1160. >This is one sturdy guy huh?
  1161. >Something is wrong
  1162. >He looks up from the ground and screeches, making you cover your ears
  1163. *Run*
  1164. >Adrenaline is pumped into your veins as you feel the impending danger
  1165. >You jump up as he leaps to your previous position to grab you with his right hand, but he catches your ankle with his other hand
  1166. >You suddenly impact the ground
  1167. >The air is knocked out of you lungs
  1168. >You feel a hand grabbing your throat
  1169. >Now you are flying through the air
  1170. >A wall abruptly stops your journey and you once again find yourself laying on the floor
  1171. >Everything is blurry, but you know one thing
  1172. >You have to put some distance between you and this... thing
  1173. >You raise you arm and attach a web to the building
  1174. >You barely muster the strength to pull yourself up and lay down on the top of the building
  1175. >Breathing hurts but atleast the blurry vision is decreasing
  1176. >You should make sure that thing doesn't follow you up here so you get up on your feet and look down to the street
  1177. >Good news, he isn't coming for you
  1178. >Bad news, he just went into the night club
  1179. >You are pretty sure he isn't going there to party
  1180. >You jump down once again and hurry into the club after him
  1182. >You are Anonymous
  1183. >You are getting increasingly nervous as nothing seems to happen at all
  1184. >You are not sure if this is a good thing or not but you made your bed and now you have to lie in it
  1185. >It is at that moment you hear some screams muffled by the loud music
  1186. >You rush up close to Vinyl to look down and see what's going on
  1187. >Some weird dude is throwing people around like ragdolls as they scream and try to run away
  1188. >He catches some guy and takes a bite-
  1190. >You hear the music stop as Vinyl halts her playing
  1191. >Octavia, also rushed to the DJ booth, speaks with a scared voice
  1192. >"What is this? What's going on?" It's weird to see that calm and collected girl so agitated
  1193. "I think we are in big trouble." You barely get to finish your sentence as a familiar figure jumps on the crazy dude and throws him across the club
  1194. >Towards the DJ booth
  1195. >Towards you!
  1196. >As he reaches his destination he collides directly with you knocking you to the floor unconcious
  1198. >Be Sunset Shimmer because writefag ran out of puns
  1199. >You've just saved that guy from being eaten
  1200. >However you threw the monster towards some civilians and possibly injured one
  1201. >At the very least it seem that it doesn't geting back up
  1202. >Oh no it does, right there
  1203. >It's attacking the blue haired girl
  1204. >You aim your web towards them and spin it but the creature just ducks down
  1205. >Some other girl tries to save her friend but gets a backhand slap that sends her falling down to the dance floor
  1206. >You spin your web and throw it twice without interruption
  1207. >Once to the falling girl and once to the DJ booth leaving her suspended in the air
  1208. >She looks up at you, her face bloodied and swollen and screams
  1209. >"PLEASE SAVE HER!"
  1210. >At that moment you feel for the first time the weight of what you were doing running around in the streets, catching criminals
  1211. >You feel for the first time, the weight of responsibility on your shoulders
  1212. >You have to get up there, you have to save that girl
  1213. >You cannot fail
  1214. >You throw your web to the ceiling and pull yourself up ahead towards the booth
  1215. >You attempt a dropkick as you close in on the creature, but once again he just dodges your attack without even letting go of the girl
  1216. >You need to stop him from moving around but you can't do it if he just avoids your webbing
  1217. >But you can try to trick him
  1218. >You throw your web towards his face and just as you expected he moves to dodge it
  1219. >Using this moment as a distraction you spin more web, this time sticking his feet to the ground
  1220. >This however incites an unexpected reaction from him
  1221. >The creature roars, blood dripping from his chin and throws the girl toward you
  1222. >You brace yourself to catch her but at that moment your injured leg gives in, sending a wave that is enough to make you lose your strength for a moment
  1223. >Girl's flinging body hits you like a sack of bricks, sending both of you into a giant loud speaker
  1224. >Electric current shakes your body, causing you muscles to contract violently
  1225. >The girl you were supposed to save is faring no better but luckyly this causes a fuse to blow and cut out the power of the entire building
  1226. >You don't notice however as it went all dark for you some seconds ago
  1228. >Be Lemon Zest
  1229. >Anon seem like he really screwed things up
  1230. >You should fix it before he kills you again
  1231. >That is, if you aren't too late already
  1233. >You come to realize that you are Sombra Morbius as the sound and light around you suddenly dies
  1234. >Not needing the light, your vision is still clear
  1235. >However, you aren't sure about where you are
  1236. >You were fighting this strange woman and then it's all fuzzy
  1237. >You notice that the clawing hunger is gone now
  1238. >The implications of this frightens you and as you look around you find valid reasons for your fear
  1239. >The woman you were fighting lies motionless on the ground, along with two others
  1240. >You walk towards your unmoving opponent as you hear someone crying
  1241. >It came from below which makes you realize that you are standing on a high platform
  1242. >Further investigation of your surroundings tells you that you are in a nightclub
  1243. >Perhaps the one that was across the street?
  1244. >There was definitely a party in process there so if you are in that nightclub...
  1245. >"Vinyl?... Anyone?" Calls out tearful voice of a young woman, making you put your speculations aside
  1246. >Maybe they can tell you what happened
  1247. >You go to the edge of the platform and look down
  1248. >It is high but... Something tells you that you can jump down just fine, so you do it
  1249. >Reaching the floor you hear a surprised gasp, which tells you where the person you're looking for is
  1250. >You turn and see a young woman suspended in the air by some rope
  1251. >She looks around, unable to see anything in the dark, unlike you
  1252. >"V-Vinyl?" Her voice is so hopeful that you almost don't want to speak and take it away
  1253. >But alas
  1254. "I am not Vinyl." You speak. "My name is Sombra. Can you tell me what happened here?"
  1255. >She frowns but obliges, "Some guy just ran into the club attacking people and this girl came  in and threw him up there."
  1256. >She points to the platform you were on
  1257. >"I don't think she did it on purpose but the guy hit one of my friends and then attacked me, but Vinyl tried to cut him off and h-he-"
  1258. >She stops for a second. "Is she okay? Can you go up there and look?"
  1259. >You open your mouth but can't bring yourself to speak about it
  1261. >Instead you decide on something else
  1262. >There is nothing you can do here but maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. can
  1263. "Do you have a phone?" You ask the girl. "I'll call for help."
  1264. >She nods. "Yeah it's in my pocket." She pulls it out and starts dialing 911
  1265. >You take the phone from her before she can finish
  1266. "Not 911, you don't want them involved in this trust me."
  1267. >"Who then?" She asks.
  1268. >You just turn your back to her and dial
  1269. >>"Yes, this is Lilac Patissery, how can I help you?"
  1270. "Sombra M. Alpha, foxtrot, one, three, one, one, x-ray, sierra. Requesting immediate medical support to my location. Please suspend any Non-Shield interventions to the area."
  1271. >>"Understood, support inbound, ETA three minutes."
  1272. >You hang up a the phone
  1273. >"Did you just call S.H.I.E.L.D.?" The girl asks
  1274. >You grab her hand and put her phone in her palm
  1275. "I'm sorry." You say before running out of and away from the nightclub, ignoring the girl calling after you
  1277. >Cold
  1278. >Dark
  1279. >You are laying down
  1280. >Who were you again?
  1281. >It's fuzzy, but you remember something... someone
  1282. >She called you Vinyl
  1283. >Yes, you remember
  1284. >You were at the nightclub with Octavia and Anon
  1285. >Some guy attacked you
  1286. >Your hand goes for the two puncture wounds on your neck as you remember the event with more details
  1287. >Your arm brushes over your nipples
  1288. >You are naked, but why?
  1289. >You try to sit up but before you can move ten inches, your head collides with some metal plate
  1290. >Using your hands, you try to find out where you are
  1291. >It feels like a metal box
  1292. >You shiver, this place is like a refrigerator
  1293. >Could it be that...
  1294. >No way, this is not a movie, they would know if...
  1295. >There is a way to be sure
  1296. >You move your feet and feel something touching your skin
  1297. >Your other foot confirms that this is indeed a name tag as you thought
  1298. >There is very little doubt now, you are in a morgue
  1299. >You feel panic rising inside you
  1300. >What if it's night and everyone left? Would you freeze to death?
  1301. >No one would even know that you were alive!
  1302. >What would Octavia feel if you were dead?
  1303. >Does she think you are dead? Did they tell her so?
  1304. >Is she even safe? What if she's in another drawer right next to you?
  1305. >You need to get out, now!
  1306. >You start hitting the confines of your enclosure
  1308. >You trash around some more
  1309. "IS ANYONE THERE?! I'M NOT... not... dead?"
  1310. >Your hands close around your mouth
  1311. >You talked
  1312. >You just talked!
  1313. >It wasn't some meaningless moaning, you spoke actual words!
  1314. >How is this possible?
  1315. >Not even the clanking sound of your cage's door opening diverts your attention from this highlight
  1316. >Only when the drawer is pulled out and light hits your eyes with painful intensity, you realize that you are rescued
  1317. >"Oh my God!" You hear a woman's voice. "I can't believe we made a mistake like this! I'm so sorry!"
  1318. >You take a few moments for your eyes to adjust to the light
  1319. >Slowly opening your eyes, you see a woman with pink hair in a nurse uniform
  1320. >"Are you alright?" Nurse asks with a surprised expression on her face
  1321. "I think so?" You say. It feels weird to talk again after all those years. "Are my friends okay? Where is Octavia?"
  1322. >"Are you sure?" She asks again. "I mean you look okay now but you had severe burns from electrocution when they brought you in"
  1323. >You look at your naked body for any injuries, which also urges you to cover yourself with your arms
  1324. >"How is this possible? Are you a mutant?" You look back at her bewildered
  1325. "No! I'm just a normal girl, this doesn't make any sense! What is going on? Where are my friends?"
  1326. >She gives you a suspicious look before speaking
  1327. >"I don't know what's happening but we'll figure it out. Your friends are okay, physically atleast. Just a couple of bruises." She takes off her lab coat and wraps it around you. "Here, take this for now. I think they took your clothes as evidence."
  1328. >You wear the lab coat on your naked skin and button it up in few places
  1329. >"We though you were dead and uh... We let your friends know." She gives you an apologetic look. "The girl you were talking about, Octavia, she passed out and-
  1330. >She's cut of by you suddenly jumping on your feet
  1331. "Take me to her." You see a little spark of hesitation in her eyes. "NOW!"
  1332. >"Okay, okay!" She raises her hands before turning towards the door. "Follow me"
  1334. >You are Anonymous
  1335. >You fucked it all up real nice
  1336. >Octavia is laying down on a hospital bed, passed out from shock
  1337. >You know Spider-Woman is here too, probably in a different room since she needs intensive care
  1338. >Maybe you should say Sunset, since they took off her mask when they treated her wounds
  1339. >You almost didn't recognize her
  1340. >Her skin had red patches, burnt and flayed areas along with swollen pockets all over
  1341. >If it wasn't for the fuse, the electrocution might've cost her some limbs
  1342. >That's what the doctors said anyway
  1343. >You woke up on the way to the hospital, or whatever this place is
  1344. >Apperantly you just your head, but you're just fine
  1345. >Octavia has a broken cheekbone, Sunset is heavily sedated under intensive care and Vinyl...
  1346. >She's dead
  1347. >All thanks to you
  1348. >You were going to make her speak again
  1349. >Instead you silenced her for good
  1350. >Oh, and you got out scot-free!
  1351. >Now your powers won't say anything to you
  1352. >Guess you really can't bring back the dead
  1353. >Look what you powers got you anyway, it's better off if you stop using them
  1354. >Sound of the door opening draws your attention
  1355. >In walks a very familiar figure dressed in a lab coat along with a woman with pink hair
  1356. >You feel you heart lighten and tears welling in your eyes
  1357. >She rushes towards you and Octavia, stopping right next to the bed and leaning over the black haired girl
  1358. >"Octavia." She whispers as she puts her hand on the girl's cheek
  1359. >You are left absolutely breathless
  1360. >It worked
  1361. >Vinyl isn't dead
  1362. >And she's is talking
  1364. >You are Aryanne Degurechaff
  1365. >A high level Hydra field operative and assassin
  1366. >You've been summoned for a new mission
  1367. >Following beside you is Tracey Cage
  1368. >While she is under your command, she is doesn't always go with you on the field
  1369. >She's a voluntary test subject of Hydra experiments
  1370. >She takes pride in being a lab rat, something you don't understand
  1371. >You both support a black leather Waffen-SS uniform with a Hydra armband
  1372. >Tracey is also wearing a large metal collar with a short chain attached to it
  1373. >Which is weird because you haven't seen her with that before
  1374. "What's with the collar?" Your question is met with one of her signature predatory grins
  1375. >"It's a surprise, you might get to see it if our mission goes bad"
  1376. >You stop before a large mahogany door with a symbol of the organization carved onto it
  1377. >You knock on the door and a quick "Come in!" is heard before you walk in
  1378. "Hail Hydra!"
  1379. >"Hail Hydra!"
  1380. >You both salute the man who's sitting behind his desk
  1381. >"Hail Hydra," He responds nonchalantly. "I will not take much of your time, the mission is very straight forward"
  1382. >He hands you a dossier, which you open upon recieving
  1383. >It's about a man named Sombra Morbius
  1384. >"The man you see there is a SHIELD scientist." He gets up from his chair and starts walking
  1385. >"He went AWOL about seventy-two hours ago and according to our sources his location is currently unknown." He walks around the table and comes closer
  1386. >"We know he was working on an important project for SHIELD and unfortunately for us didn't finish his work before leaving"
  1387. >"We want him found and brought here, alive." He says, looking at Tracey "So he can complete the project."
  1388. >"Yes Baron" She responds, knowing her failings in the past
  1389. >"We think the doctor may have been enhanced." He looks back at you, "That's why we are giving you your blood bag. Keep her under control."
  1390. "Yes Baron." You respond
  1391. >He walks around the table and returns to his chair
  1392. >"Be on your way then, and good luck. Hail Hydra."
  1393. >"Hail Hydra!"
  1394. "Hail Hydra!"
  1395. >You exit the room along with Tracey
  1396. "Make your preperations and meet me at the courtyard, you've got fifteen minutes." You talk stern
  1397. >"Yes ma'am." She hastily takes off, but you stop her
  1398. "Tracey," She turns to you. "If you kill him, I will personally cut your limbs off."
  1399. >She barely supresses another grin. "Yes ma'am."
  1400. >You nudge her to continue
  1401. >Wrong choice of words, Aryanne
  1402. >How do you punish someone who enjoys punishment?
  1403. >You should figure something out before you find your target or Tracey might just kill him in hopes of getting tortured
  1404. >Fifteen minutes later you and Tracey are both walking towards a helicopter LZ
  1405. >You are both wearing jeans, a white shirt and a leather jacket
  1406. >You have your guns strapped onto your back, under your shirt, hidden by the jacket
  1407. >You assume Tracey has a gun and a giant knife hidden there
  1408. >Only thing that is a bit off is that metal collar she's wearing but she insists it might be necessary
  1409. >As you take your seats in the helicopter the co-pilot hand you a pair of headphones
  1410. >Putting them on, you speak to the pilot
  1411. "Drop us off at Hammer Industries building located in Canterlot. The security is informed about two VIPs coming, we expect no problems."
  1412. >"Understood." He says before taking off.
  1413. >The headquarters isn't very far from Canterlot city.so this should be a short ride
  1414. >You turn your head and look at Tracey
  1415. >She returns your look with a wave of her hand and a cute smile
  1416. >Someone who doesn't know her would think she's a nice person
  1417. >"What's wrong Anne?"
  1418. >You've been staring
  1419. "Nothing." You say as you turn away from her
  1420. >There is an idea you have in mind to stop her from killing your target
  1421. >You don't like it and she might not even be planning to kill him
  1422. >But Baron seems to believe this mission is really important, so you will not take any chances
  1424. >Be Anonymous
  1425. >You are having trouble deciding about where you want to look at
  1426. >Octavia just woke up and decided to welcome Vinyl with a very enthusiastic french kiss
  1427. >A very long and sloppy one too
  1428. >You are pretty sure Vinyl has no clothes under that lab coat because you can see her nipples poking out
  1429. >Anon Jr is at full attention
  1430. >You had no idea Vinyl and Octavia were... uh, dating?
  1431. >Goddamn they just won't stop huh?
  1432. >You panic a little when Octavia's hand starts to lift up the lab coat
  1433. >Thankfully the nurse intervenes
  1434. >"Woah! Woah!" She pushes them away from each other. "Enough kissing, okay?"
  1435. >Her face is a little red from the commotion
  1436. >Then there is Octavia's face when she realizes there are other people in the room
  1437. >You think she might be going for a purple-ish color there
  1438. >This Octavia is VERY different from the calm and collected one you came to know at school
  1439. >"A-Anon! Hi!" She stutters. "I was uh... We were just-"
  1440. "I didn't see anything." You deny your spectatorship
  1441. >"Yeah you did!" Vinyl jumps in, pointing at your raging erection
  1442. >You pull your legs to your chest in an attempt to hide your shame
  1443. >Meanwhile Octavia looks at her girlfriend, startled
  1444. >"How did you- You talked?!"
  1445. >Vinyl gives her a smug look accompanied by a nod
  1446. >"Oh, Vinyl!" She basically tackles her to the ground which exposes some of Vinyl's lower part
  1447. >It's only a side view but you can't help but stare
  1448. >"You like watching huh Anon?" Vinyl's voice brings you back to reality
  1449. "N-No!" You blurt out
  1450. >Now you understand why Octavia didn't translate everything to you
  1452. >You are Aryanne
  1453. >You and Tracey just arrived at Hammer industries building and are exiting the chopper
  1454. >You see someone waiting for you at the landing zone
  1455. >A man wearing a white suit, carrying a suitcase
  1456. >As you and Tracey walk away from the LZ and toward the entrance he runs ahead and hold the door
  1457. >Once you are inside he greets you appropriately
  1458. >"Welcome. It is great to have visitors from our partners." He reaches for a handshake which you accept.
  1459. "I'm afraid we will not be staying too long," You remark. "as you are probably aware."
  1460. >"Of course, duty first." He gestures to an elevator door. "This way, please."
  1461. >Following the man, you two board the elevator and allow him to lead you to the ground floor of the building
  1462. >He keeps walking as you two follow him through some scientific personnel, workers and security
  1463. >Once you are outside the building he finally shows you to a car
  1464. >"We had this prepared for you, completely disposable so don't worry about keeping it safe."
  1465. >While it is not too luxurious, the car is not very cheap looking either
  1466. >It is also somewhat dusted so it doesn't draw attention at all
  1467. >"Of course, if you prefer something more mobile," the man adds, "we can get you a couple of motorcycles instead."
  1468. >You shake your head
  1469. "No this is just fine, thank you." He gives you the keys and hold the suitcase for you to take
  1470. >Your questioning look is returned with an explanation
  1471. >"This is a prototype, portable railgun. No bigger than a pistol but much more silent." He clarifies. "It had performed perfectly on every lab environment and we'd like you to give it a field test, if that's possible."
  1472. >You don't really want to risk anything by testing a prototype, but something silent might be good to bring along
  1473. "I will see, if an opportunity presents itself." You take the suitcase.
  1474. >"That's all we ask." He says, taking a few steps back
  1475. >You unlock the car and nudge Tracey to get in which she obeys immediately
  1477. >Sitting behind the wheel you start up the engine and start your way towards the provided address
  1478. >Time to make sure Tracey doesn't kill the guy you're after
  1479. "Tracey?" You call without taking your eyes off the road ahead
  1480. >"Hm? What?" She asks nonchalantly
  1481. "Remember how I said I would punish you if you killed our target?"
  1482. >"Yes~?" She sounds perky
  1483. "I changed my mind." You can just feel her mood drop even though you aren't looking
  1484. >"That's okay." She speaks with disappointment. "I mean, I wasn't going to deliberitaly kill him or anything, Baron was really serious this time, but I was hoping for an accident."
  1485. >Huh, maybe you misjudged her self-control
  1486. >She might not need an incentive afterall
  1487. >"You should trust me more, you know?" She bemoans. "You break my heart sometimes."
  1488. "You don't have a heart. Literally." You object
  1489. >"Not funny." She sits back in her seat looking through the side window
  1490. >Now you feel kinda bad, she does always obey your orders
  1491. >Albeit with some childish complaining sometimes, but that's kinda her thing
  1492. "Tell you what, if you do a good job on this mission, I'll get you a new knife."
  1493. >"I don't want a new knife, I like my knife." You sigh
  1494. "What do you want then?" She turns around and looks at you
  1495. >"I want you to stab me." You can hear her grin. "In the chest, repeatedly."
  1496. "Goddammit Tracey!" She just giggles like the fucking lunatic she is
  1497. >"You'll do it though, right?" Sudden seriousness in her voice would startle you in your early days with her
  1498. "Yeah, I'll do it." You say while you step on the gas pedal a little harder in frustration
  1500. >Be Vinyl Scratch
  1501. >You, Tavi and Anon decided to see how Spider Woman, or Sunset, is faring
  1502. >Now that you are in her room, you almost feel bad for walking away fine from this
  1503. >She has bandages all over her body and she's hooked up to so many machines she's covered in cables and tubes
  1504. >It seems like she lost some of her hair too, or maybe the doctors shaved it to clean the wounds properly
  1505. >You are standing at the side of her bed, Octavia hugging your arm and Anon is at the bottom of it along with the nurse
  1506. >During your small conversation on the way here you learned that her name is Clare Redheart
  1507. "Will she be alright?" You ask the her
  1508. >"She survived the first crucial hours, so we expect a full recovery." Redheart starts. "However, she still needs to be kept under close watch for the time being."
  1509. "How long?"
  1510. >She thinks for a while
  1511. >"Aside from what you can see, she has internal injuries and some bone fractures aswell, but from what we observed so far she's healing really fast."
  1512. >She looks at you with inquisitive eyes
  1513. >"Not as fast as you, but we expect her to be fully healed in about two weeks. She will be up on her feet in a couple days."
  1514. >That's good to hear atleast, but still, you know better than anyone that doesn't mean she'll walk away without a reminder of this event
  1515. "What about scars?"
  1516. >"Well, with her healing ability, she might not have any permenant scars, but there is no way to be sure." She curls the corner of her mouth in a weird expression. "Atleast electrocution scars look pretty."
  1517. >You nod and notice that Anon has been just staring intensely at Sunset this whole time
  1518. "Anon?" His snaps back from his thoughts and looks at you. "Are you alright?"
  1520. >You are Anonymous
  1521. "Uh... Yeah. Yeah I'm fine."
  1522. >You're not fine
  1523. >You did this
  1524. >Your wish to help Vinyl led to someone else getting hurt
  1525. >You cannot even say that you didn't know this would happen
  1526. >You were okay with stabbing someone for it
  1527. >Why not electrocute someone? Is it okay as long as they don't die?
  1528. >How did you even know that no one would die?
  1529. Vinyl almost died
  1530. >What you did was right, but how you did it...
  1531. >Does the goal justify the means?
  1532. >You want to say it does but could you say that to Sunset?
  1533. >Some more indistinct conversation finds its way to your ears as you get lost in these thoughts once again
  1534. >You realize she was calling your name for a while when you finally perceive Octavia's words
  1535. >"Anonymous? Are you sure you are alright?" She looks worried. "You seem really out of it."
  1536. "Don't worry about it." You say plainly. "I'm just a little shook is all."
  1537. >She looks back at Sunset. "I know what you mean." Then looks back at you again. "Ms. Redheart was saying that we could have some breakfast in the cafeteria. Are you coming?"
  1538. >Breakfast huh? Has it been that long?
  1539. "You go ahead. I'll catch up."
  1540. >"But you don't know where the cafeteria is." Nurse objects
  1541. "I'll ask around." That sounded a bit too harsh even though you didn't mean to say it like that
  1542. >Some weird looks are exchanged between the trio before Octavia talks
  1543. >"Alright, see you there then..." She says before they all quitely leave the room
  1544. >You wait a few seconds before talking
  1545. "I'm sorry, Sunset. I didn't mean this to happen."
  1546. >You are not sure if she can hear you
  1547. >You are not sure whether you'd want her to
  1548. "I was just trying to help Vinyl get her voice back and everything just went out of control."
  1549. >You feel some tears welling up and stop for a moment
  1550. >No need to raise anymore questions, so you'd rather not go to the cafeteria with red eyes
  1551. "I don't know what I can do but I'll make this right. Who knows? Maybe I can save your life without you even knowing about it."
  1552. >Thinking about you and her like a team brings a little smile to your face
  1553. >You start walking out of the room, but stop as you open the door to say a few more words
  1554. "Rest well and get better soon. And don't worry, I'll try to keep the streets safe for you. Somehow..."
  1556. >You are Lemon Zest
  1557. >Though S.H.I.E.L.D. is a publicly known organization, they keep the location of their buildings to themselves
  1558. >So it is not every day you get to be in one of them
  1559. >Unfortunately, you are not here for sight seeing
  1560. >You thought that Vinyl's death was why Anon asked, or more accurately forcefully enlisted, your help
  1561. >Now it seems that Vinyl didn't die
  1562. >All her wounds have somehow healed aswell
  1563. >So it must be someone else
  1564. >Well, technically Vinyl might still die but for now Sunset seems to be the better candidate
  1565. >You wish Anon gave you more to work than "Save my friend," before shooting you
  1566. >Still, you don't need to wait around to see if Sunset dies from her wounds
  1567. >There is nothing you can do to prevent it if that's the case anyway
  1568. >Which means that since you don't know who it is that dies, it'll be hard for you to stop that from happening
  1569. >So you will probably have to die again
  1570. "Goddammit." You mumble.
  1571. >The worst part is that there is no way to avoid it because anything Anon want's somehow ends up happening
  1572. >With unexpected consequences, sure
  1573. >But if he wants you dead, you are pretty sure you'll die
  1574. >It's unfortunate that you have a moral compass that stops you from killing people
  1575. >You could just kill him here and be done with it
  1576. >Well, since there is nothing you can do here, you might as well follow Anon to the cafeteria and get some breakfast yourself
  1577. >You wait next to the door and quickly exit as he opens it
  1578. "Why thank you, Anonymous. Such a gentleman."
  1579. >No answer, of course. He can't hear you
  1580. >As you walk, you regret wearing socks instead of shoes
  1581. >Ground is cold and it's making your feet cold
  1582. >Noted for the next time. Choose shoes, not socks
  1583. >Food in the cafeteria looks good
  1584. >Salad, eggs, honey, butter, toasted breads, jelly...
  1585. >You'd love to get a food tray and sit somewhere, but making things that don't touch your skin imperceptible requires actual work from your part
  1586. >Needless to say, you are pretty tired
  1587. >You've been following Anon around for a few days now and you got no sleep last night
  1588. >You need some place to sleep that won't get you caught, you can't use your powers while you're asleep
  1589. >You just go ahead and grab a fork
  1590. >Taking a tray and making the food disappear may be hard, but you can just eat here
  1591. >It does look like self service, there is no "lunch lady", so floating food won't gather much attention
  1592. >You hope
  1593. >It is good that there is not many people getting breakfast too
  1594. >You wait a little for Anon to finish up and start up with some cheese
  1595. >It's pretty gouda
  1596. >Heh
  1597. >Looking around to make sure no one's watching, you continue your meal
  1598. >After a while, it starts to get crowded
  1599. >Apperantly you were just early, so you decide not risking getting caught and head for the table that Anon and others are sitting
  1600. >People in your way subconciously move away from you
  1601. >Once you are at the table, you listen in on the conversation
  1602. >"They should let you go after getting a report on the events at the club." Nurse speaks. "I think it would be smart to run some tests on you though." She says to Vinyl. "I think you might have acquired some new abilities."
  1603. >"Like superpowers?" Vinyl seems excited. "Oh man, this is great!"
  1604. >You are kinda impressed how comfortable Vinyl is with just a lab coat as her attire
  1605. >Pretty hot to be honest, Anon would agree you imagine
  1606. >He doesn't seem like he's paying attention to anything around him right now though
  1607. >Probably thinking about Sunset if you were to guess
  1608. >"OW! OW! OW! MMMHH!" Vinyl's cry makes you and everyone else look at her
  1609. >She's holding her tummy with a pained expression
  1610. >"What is it, Vinyl? What's happening?!" Octavia asks.
  1611. >"I-" She gags. "I think I'm gonna throw up!"
  1612. >"Let's get you to a bathroom." Nurse quickly gets up and helps her to her feet, but before they can go much further she bends forward in pain
  1613. >Once again, she's grasping her stomach. "Ah, it hurts!"
  1614. >Falling on her knees, she gags again and eliminates the need to get to a bathroom
  1615. >All others can do is watch
  1616. >She keeps gagging even after there is nothing left to let out
  1617. >Octavia rubs her back while Vinyl tries to catch her breath
  1618. >"I think I need to lay down." She says with a tired voice
  1619. >Octavia helps her up and grabs her around the waist, lifting some of her weight
  1620. >"I'm sorry about all this." Vinyl says to the nurse
  1621. >"It's fine." She cuts short and turns to Octavia. "Take her to the room you were staying, I'll be there once I find someone to clean this up."
  1622. >Octavia simply nods and motions Anon for help
  1623. >As the two help their friend to a bed you follow suit, reviewing your theories
  1624. >Maybe Vinyl's not so well after all
  1626. >You are Aryanne
  1627. >Tracey and you are sitting in the car, across the road from Morbius' apartment
  1628. >"I hope you're right, Anne." Tracey says. "I really want some action."
  1629. "I don't think S.H.I.E.L.D. would just leave the scene unchecked." You reply. "There must be someone watching the place."
  1630. >"Well, do we go in or not?" She's ecstatic as ever
  1631. "Yeah, let's go. Just try not to get too much blood on yourself." You switch one of your guns with the railgun before heading out
  1632. >It is a weird weapon
  1633. >It seems to have not one, but two magazines
  1634. >One for small metal balls that it launches, one for a power cell that contains the electrical energy to accelarate the projectiles
  1635. >Strikes you as inefficient, they could make them into one magazine if they measured the power needed to launch each projectile
  1636. >Then again, there may be other factors you aren't aware of
  1637. >This is why they wanted you to test the weapon
  1638. >You walk into the building and start climbing the stairs
  1639. >There are other people living here, you shouldn't carry your weapons openly
  1640. >You may need them fast though, so you are holding one with your right hand behind your back, concealed under your leather coat
  1641. >A couple floors up and you reach the door you seek
  1642. >Tracey takes the lead as you take position for cover fire if needed
  1643. >She kick the door in and you both rush inside with weapons in your hands ready to fire
  1644. >Checking the rooms one by one, you clear the entire place, not encountering any hostiles
  1645. >You stand there confused for a moment
  1646. >S.H.I.E.L.D. can't be this sloppy
  1647. >It is in that moment one of the windows shatter into thousand pieces and you hear a metallic ping
  1648. "SNIPER! GET DOWN!" You yell, running for cover
  1649. >You put a wall between you and the shooter
  1650. >Tracey is laying motionless on the floor, her eyes looking out of the window that the bullet came in from
  1651. >You are worried for a second until she speaks
  1652. >"He thinks he go' e." She says, without moving her lips. "I can't see 'ere he is though, I need another shot."
  1653. >Thinking for a second, you reach and grab a desk lamp
  1654. >You and slowly raise it in front of the window, into the sniper's field of view
  1655. >Sure enough, he takes the bait and shoots the lamp off your hand
  1656. >It is at that moment Tracey gets up and fires her gun out the window
  1657. >Another shot from the sniper hits to a random spot inside the room
  1658. >Silence falls as Tracey stops firing
  1659. >There is no more shooting
  1660. >Tracey either hit the guy or he decided to relocate after beind found out
  1661. >You shouldn't risk it though
  1662. "Let's get out of here and be sure he's dead." You say
  1663. >Rushing out of the apartment and through the stairs, you exit the building with Tracey in the lead
  1664. >Once you reach the sniper's nest, you see him fallen face first next to his rifle with the back of his head blasted open
  1665. "Nice shot." You say, holstering your gun
  1666. >Tracey also lowers her gun and turns to you. "Look." She lifts up some of her hair and you see some metal showing under her skin. "How much hair is gone?"
  1667. "Not much." You answer. "I wouldn't notice if you didn't show me."
  1668. >"Good." She says before kicking the sniper's dead body. "You. Son. Of a. Bitch."
  1669. >You put your hand on her shoulder
  1670. "Let's get back to the apartment. He might have alerted them. We don't have much time."
  1671. >You hear some cars stopping and go take a look out the window
  1672. >Some troops in tactical gear exit the cars, armed with M4s, along with a man wearing a suit
  1673. >Presumebly the man in charge
  1674. >Some of them go up your target building while some head for the building you are in
  1675. >Two of them is left behind to protect the man in suit
  1676. >You have an idea
  1677. "How would you like to go on a killing spree?" You ask your companion
  1678. >"Oh yes! Finally!" She exclaims. "What about not getting bloody?"
  1679. "We are way past that point." She grins wider than she ever did today. "Just one rule, don't kill the man in the suit. We need him. You can take out the ones in this building. I'll provide you cover fire once you go outside."
  1680. >"Yes. Ma'am." She says, exiting the room
  1682. >Be Tracey
  1683. >Boy oh boy!
  1684. >It's time to shine and have some fun
  1685. >You draw your giant knife in your right hand and switch the gun to your left
  1686. >Sounds of the soldiers climbing the stairs reaches you
  1687. >You go to an apartment just next to the stairway and ring the doorbell
  1688. >Sure enough some woman opens the door shortly after
  1689. >Which you immediately shush by hitting in the head with the stock of your gun
  1690. >You walk in and shut the door, looking through the peephole for enemy movement
  1691. >One guys passes by the door
  1692. >Two... Three... Four... Five... Six...
  1693. >They are all headed for the sniper's nest
  1694. >You won't let them reach there
  1695. >Moments later when no one else passes by the door, you go out and get the jump on the sixth guy
  1696. >You run your knife all the way through his right lung and out the other side, causing him to let out a pained cry
  1697. >You lift him up in the air by using the knife as a handle
  1698. >The others turn around to see their friend dangling from your blade, frantically trying to get free while he slowly drowns in his own blood
  1699. >You fire your gun and take out the guy closest to you
  1700. >"I CAN'T GET A CLEAR SHOT!" One of the soldiers yell as you use his impaled friend as a shield
  1701. >"RUSH HER DOWN!"
  1702. >With the order, they start running towards you
  1703. >You let out a deranged giggle and turn your gun to your meat shield instead
  1704. >Your opponents hesitate for a second, thinking that you are turning this into a hostage situation
  1705. >You just pull the trigger and blow the man's brains out before hurling the body at an attacker
  1706. >As he fails to avoid the incoming projectile, you aim your gun to another and shoot him in the face
  1707. >It is at this moment they start shooting at you
  1708. >You quickly run back to the apartment you were just in, only getting shot a couple of times
  1709. >You take position just beside the entrance as you feel the gelatinous compound under your skin harden and stop the bleeding quickly as it comes in contact with the air
  1710. >Bullets might be still inside, but that hardly matters since you lack many organs that would be considered vital for a human
  1711. >No heart or lungs
  1712. >Only potential danger from the bullets is heavy metal poisoning, but that's a long shot
  1713. >Heh, puns
  1714. >Blood loss is still a thing though and you have only so much of that clotting agent in your system
  1715. >"What the fuck man?!" You hear one of the soldiers
  1716. >"Seer, this is Yankee Leader, we have been ambushed, three officers KIA, pursuing the assailant, over." This must be the team leader
  1717. ~Copy that, be careful Yankee, over~
  1718. >"She's inside that apartment. I think we shot her."
  1719. >"Let's end this."
  1720. >The moment you see a barrel of a rifle poking in, you switch your knife to a reverse grip, turn around the corner and run it through the man's throat
  1721. >He's coughing up blood while his hands try to grab the knife
  1722. >Other two start shooting but you once again move behind the ,now dead, man and walk towards them while using him as a shield
  1723. >Oh the irony!
  1724. >You are done with this bullshit
  1725. >Raising your gun, you aim for their legs and fire your weapon
  1726. >They both fall to the ground
  1727. >Letting your lifeless victim go with the knife still inside him, you also drop your gun and squat between the injured man
  1728. >Acting quickly, you yank their weapons from ther hands and throw them away before talking
  1729. "One of you gets to leave this building alive." You say with a big grin on your face. "Can you help me make a choice?"
  1730. >They say nothing for a few seconds and then one of them spits in your face
  1731. >"Fuck you! You bitch! I'm gon-" You grab his mouth and silence him
  1732. "Thank you." You say before start bashing his head against the concrete
  1733. *Smack*
  1734. *Smack*
  1735. *Smack*
  1736. *Crunch*
  1737. ...
  1738. >Other guy tries to get up, but you push him down by the throat
  1739. >Every hit sends a shiver down your spine and you laugh with ecstasy
  1740. >After a while the sounds turned into a wet slapping, but the pleasure you take only gets more and more intense
  1741. >Unfortunately, you have a job to do so you have to let this go
  1742. >You stand up and force the last soldier to his feet
  1743. >You are still slowly choking him so he can't make any noise
  1744. >Walking towards an apartment that oversees the entrance of the building, you kick the door in and walk inside
  1745. >You see some guy with a knife in his hand getting ready to attack, but he just backs up to a corner after laying eyes on you
  1746. >You just ignore him and walk towards a window
  1747. >Without bothering to open it, you just throw the man you're holding out the building
  1748. >Breaking glass and the body that hits the floor grabs the attention of men that are waiting down the street
  1749. >When they look up, you smile and wave your hand before going back in
  1750. >That should make them call back the team in the other building
  1751. >Walking out of the apartment, you grab your weapons and start decending the staircase
  1753. >You are Aryanne
  1754. >There is some shooting and screaming going on
  1755. >You are not concerned with that however
  1756. >Tracey has her own job and so do you
  1757. >You are going to wait for the team in the other building to come out
  1758. >You could engage them from here, you see them, but that would give them too much cover
  1759. >Once they come out into the open, you will have the height advantage
  1760. >They won't be able to hide very well
  1761. >If they find a way, then so be it
  1762. >That will give Tracey more opening
  1763. >You see some poor soul plummeting to his death
  1764. >So does the man in the suit
  1765. >It doesn't take him too long to speak to his radio
  1766. "Good work, Tracey." You say as you push the sniper's corpse aside and get ready to fire at anyone that's on the street
  1767. >Sure enough, not even half a minute later, second team comes out of the building, positioning themselves to open fire at Tracey if she walks out of the front door
  1768. >You count five of them
  1769. >It's time
  1770. >You take aim and fire while slowly breathing out
  1771. >As the somewhat reduced sound of the suppressed rifle echoes through the street, your target hits the floor, lifeless
  1772. >"SNIPER!"
  1773. *klink* *schlik*
  1774. >As the soldiers scramble to find better cover, Tracey runs out and starts shooting at them
  1775. >You see one aiming at her and take your shot
  1776. >Not being aimed as carefully, your shot doesn't kill the man, but takes his arm off from the elbow
  1777. >You reload the chamber and finish him off with a second bullet
  1778. >Mean while Tracey took out two of them before running for cover
  1779. >She's changing the magazine
  1780. >Someone's moving in on her
  1781. >You realign your sights, but before you can shoot, some bullets lodge themselves around the window you are firing from
  1782. >Ducking to avoid getting hit, you scream to warn Tracey
  1783. "ENEMY AT YOUR 5!"
  1784. >You run out the apartment to find a new nest, hoping she heard you
  1785. >Not that she's in serious danger, but she gets really mad when she's injured in fights
  1786. >And she's not immortal, so getting shot less is a better idea
  1787. >Seing an open door, you run inside
  1788. >Some guy with a knife is sitting on the floor in fetal position, shaking
  1789. >You ignore the man and take position
  1790. >The guy who shot at you is still aiming for your previous spot while the other three are exchanging bullets with Tracey
  1791. >One he came after him is laying on the ground with his guts spilled all over
  1792. >You should finish this quick, if the man in the suit is any capable, he must've asked for more reinforcements
  1793. >You take aim and shoot the guy who's aiming for you
  1794. >"FUUUCK!"
  1795. >One of them screams and starts running back to the building
  1796. >You move your sights but Tracey gets him first so you change your aim for the last guy with the uniform
  1797. >One more pull of the trigger and he's down as well
  1798. >You watch as Tracey gets out of her cover and starts walking towards the man in charge
  1799. >It's all up to her now
  1800. >You leave the apartment and start walking down the stairs
  1801. >The guy sitting on the floor didn't move an inch this whole time
  1803. >Be Tracey
  1804. >This idiot actually said the line!
  1805. >"Drop your weapons!" You just stand still
  1806. >He's carrying a pistol unlike the men he commands
  1807. >Well, commanded
  1808. >You'd laugh at him, but you are kind of pissed right now
  1809. >You heard Anne's warning, but the bastard still got you in the shoulder
  1810. >Rolling your eyes, you let your gun and knife fall to the floor
  1811. "Now what, big man?" You ask. "You gonna cuff me?"
  1812. >"Turn around and get on the floor!" He takes a few steps around the car he's been using as cover
  1813. >That one actually get a giggle out of you
  1814. "I'm going to come over there and we'll go on a ride together, if y-" He fires a shot to the ground next to you
  1815. >"I said on the ground!"
  1816. >Oh, how you wish if you weren't ordered to keep him alive...
  1817. >Ignoring him you continue speaking
  1818. "If you shoot me, I'll rip off one of your fingers for every bullet that hits me." You start walking again and he fires the gun
  1819. >Three bangs, three hits
  1820. >Doesn't even slow you down
  1821. >Clearly surprised, he slowly lowers his gun
  1822. >You grab him by his shirt and pull
  1823. "I warned you."
  1824. >You hold his left wrist and he starts trashing to escape
  1825. >"No, no, no! No please!"
  1826. >All futile
  1827. >Wrapping your hand around his index finger, you twist it with a satisfying crunch
  1828. >Slowly pulling at it, you make sure he feels every snapping ligament and tendon
  1829. >His screams are music o your ears
  1830. >And boy, does he scream!
  1831. >People that are living around here will probably be traumatized after this
  1832. >You move on to his middle finger without giving him a chance to recover
  1833. >When you grab his pinky finger you realize screams and trashing has stopped
  1834. >Pathetic weakling passed out from the pain
  1835. >You get ready to pull off his finger but decide to postpone that
  1836. >No point in torture if he cannot feel it
  1837. >"Well, if you're done, grab him and let's go." You turn to see Anne handing you your gun and knife
  1838. >She seems unfazed by all this, as usual
  1839. >You take your weapons and holster them before lifting the guy on your shoulder
  1840. "Yeah, let's go." She points at the man's hand
  1841. >"You are sitting in the back with him, make sure he doesn't bleed to death." You sigh
  1842. "Yes, ma'am."
  1844. >You are sitting at the head of a mahogany table
  1845. >While everyone around the table are important people, you are the Prince of Canterlot
  1846. >Others that sit in the room are supervisors of different districts around the city
  1847. >Only one standing in this room is a young looking boy near the exit, leaning to the wall
  1848. "I'm sure you are all eager to know why I've gathered you all here." You say calmly
  1849. >"Yeah, the sun is already up." Woman with red hair answers. "What was so important that you couldn't wait until the sundown?"
  1850. "You see," you start, "there are rumors of an attack whispered among humans since last night."
  1851. >You narrow your eyes with concern
  1852. "A vampire has attacked a night club."
  1853. >Everyone around the table frown, one gets up from his chair but sits back down, sighing before he speaks
  1854. >"How do you know it was one of ours?" He asks while combing his orange tinned blonde hair with his fingers
  1855. "I don't." You say plainly. "I suspect the possibility of a vagabond fledgeling."
  1856. >"Nonsense." Voice of an old man chimes in. "The punishment for unauthorized conversion is death of both the sire and the childe."
  1857. "Regardless," you respond, "the attack happened and I need you to investigate this, all of you."
  1858. >You point to the young man standing next to the door
  1859. "I will send my own at the sundown. Meanwhile, you will use your ghouls and otherwise human servants." You speak firmly. "For all our sakes, we must find the attacker."
  1860. >"Still, you could've just called." Red haired woman intervenes. "I hate riding the car in that coffin."
  1861. "I doubt any of you would personally come to the phone." You say. "It doesn't have the same urgency."
  1862. >It's not about their loyalty to you, you know they have none of that
  1863. >It's just that they are very uppity with their behavior and they would rather sleep than to answer a phone call
  1864. "If there isn't anything you want to add, we can dismiss." No one seems like they have anything to say
  1865. >You get up and so does the others
  1866. >After a moment, tou walk towards the exit while the young man opens the door for you
  1867. >You turn back one more time before leaving the room with your varlet
  1868. "Remember my friends, we MUST uphold the masquerade."
  1869. >Once you are out, you revert back to your true self
  1870. >Sickly, broken body of a leper...
  1871. >It is unfortunute that your long matured scars remained after your rebirth
  1872. >What is more is that when your body heals, it reverts back to its scarred apperance
  1873. >So you need to use blood magic to change your visage
  1874. >Not that it would make you look weak or it is a secret, a vampire's strength comes from their age
  1875. >You'd just rather not look like a rotten corpse
  1876. "I want you to look into this, Pip." You speak to your companion. "Go as soon as you can, we cannot have lowly ones of the kin thinking they can do whatever they want."
  1877. >"Aye, Miss Chrysalis." He replies. "I be leaving as soon as the sun don't shine."
  1878. "Good." You nod
  1879. >You should retire to sleep now, it is hard to keep awake when the sun is out
  1880. >You are a creature of the night afterall
  1882. >Be Anonymous
  1883. >You are once again in a hospital room
  1884. >This time Vinyl is laying in the bed and you along with Octavia keep her company
  1885. >Redheart collected some blood sample from her and sent it for analysis
  1886. >That was the point where the nurse's expression turned into a wary one
  1887. >The blood just wouldn't come out
  1888. >Now she's checking her blood pressure
  1889. >"I'm fine, guys." Vinyl insists. "I was in a freezer for hours, it must be some sort of cold. Though I am hungry again."
  1890. >"Just a few tests to be sure." Redheart murmurs for the tenth time
  1891. >"It is fine Vinyl. They were going to run some teats anyway." Octavia speaks. "We are going to eat all we want once we are out of here. It'll be a celebration." She entangles her fingers with hers
  1892. >It still feels weird to see them like this, they never revealed this side of their relationship before
  1893. >You are staring
  1894. >You should stop staring before you get teased by Vinyl again
  1895. >"This is..." Redheart sounds confused. "You have a blood pressure of 60 over 20. How are you still... awake?" She says
  1896. >It is at this moment some guy in a lab coat comes in
  1897. >"Here's the resuts you asked for Clare." He says. "Gotta say, this is not what I expected at all."
  1898. >Nurse Redheart starts reading the paper as the guy leaves the room
  1899. "What does it say?" You ask, hoping that Vinyl is safe
  1900. >For all you know, she could die now
  1901. >She talked, right? That was what you wanted
  1902. >The rest is arbitrary it seems
  1903. >"What is you blood type?" Nurse asks Vinyl
  1904. >"Zero positive. Why?" She asks expectantly
  1905. >"Not anymore." She says with an addled voice. "You have no blood type now."
  1906. >"What?"
  1907. >"What?"
  1908. "What?"
  1909. >You all ask at the same time
  1910. "Is that even possible?" You challenge
  1911. >"Apperantly it is." She says
  1912. >"But... What does that mean?" Vinyl asks
  1913. >"I don't know." She replies. "What I do know is that your body should be in shock from extreme blood loss right now. I'll get you a serum and we need blood transfusion aswell."
  1914. "I can do it." You pitch in. "Any type is fine right?
  1915. >You feel like maybe doing this could put your conscience at ease a little
  1916. >"That's sweet of you, Anonymous, but I would like to be the one who shares blood with Vinyl." Octavia says with a light blush on her face
  1917. >"Wow, don't fight over me you guys." Vinyl says with a smug, sultry grin on her face. "There is enough of me for both of you."
  1918. >Unf...
  1919. >This new Vinyl might be too much for your heart
  1920. >"Ahem~" Redheart gets your attention. "Well, actually, I need both of you so... good news?"
  1921. >"Oooh! It's a threso-" Octavia shuts Vinyl up by pressing a hand to her mouth
  1922. >"Vinyl, please!" She says with a red face while removing her hand
  1923. >"Okay, okay." Vinyl rolls her eyes. "Let's get this over with then."
  1924. >"I'm glad to see that you've reached a decision." Redheart says. "I'll go get the apparatus.
  1925. >You faintly hear her whispering something about teenagers to herself as she exits the room
  1926. >You back to Vinyl and see that mischievous look in her eyes
  1927. >You'll be tending to Anon Jr.'s needs once you get home if she continues with these "jokes"
  1929. >Be Redheart
  1930. >You decided to drop by the lab before doing the transfusion
  1931. >You'd rather not risk a patients life based on what may be a mistake
  1932. >You walk in and find the same guy that gave you the results
  1933. >He's busy with a centrifuge
  1934. "Hey, uh sorry." You get his attention. "Are you certain about this test results? They seem... strange."
  1935. >"Heh. I know what you mean." He answers. "But we triple checked it, by machine and manually. This blood doesn't react to any antigen or antibody, including various animal's."
  1936. >What could've caused such a change? Who attacked them? How did she healed so fast?
  1937. >All these questions...
  1938. >"You need anything else?" His voice breaks you out of your thoughts
  1939. "N-no. No, thanks." You turn around and leave the room
  1940. >You should call this in, there is definitely something going on with this girl
  1941. >Better to keep watching her for now
  1943. >You are Fury
  1944. >It is a code name, but it suits well with your fiery hair
  1945. >Real name: Nicole Spitfire
  1946. >You are watching a video footage of the street where you lost thirteen agents
  1947. >You are not sure about what went on in the buildings, but you have some theories
  1948. >The sniper reported contact with two possible hostiles
  1949. >According to his report, he had taken out one of them
  1950. >He didn't answer any calls after that and was probably killed
  1951. >Despite his report, two hostiles left the building, headed for his location
  1952. >Agency decided to send reinforcements after not hearing from the sniper
  1953. >Two teams went up to two buildings
  1954. >According to radio records, the team that was sent to recover the sniper got ambushed and was swiftly eliminated
  1955. >One of the team members fell on to the road, presumably thrown out of a window
  1956. >Team in the other building encountered no hostiles and was called back to defend the perimeter
  1957. >This is where things got interesting
  1958. >Angles on some shots suggests that sniper's nest was taken over by one of the hostiles
  1959. >The other one however, moves in with some cover fire from the sniper
  1960. >At the end of the footage, she gets shot three times from close range
  1961. >Despite that she's able to hold the struggling agent in place while torturing him
  1962. >Then she carries him on her back to the car
  1963. >Definitely an enhanced person
  1964. >Agency is looking for them all over, but all you know is that they were after Agent Sombra, an important scientist
  1965. >He's been missing for more than three days now and he last contacted the agency last night from a nightclub that was attacked by some enhanced individual
  1966. >A report was delivered to you about the incident, saying that you had some eye witnesses under observation
  1967. >Maybe it is time you meet these witnesses
  1969. >You are Anonymous
  1970. >You and Octavia are now laying on hospial beds, hooked up to some tubes, giving blood to Vinyl
  1971. >She's unusually quiet, just looking at the blood flowing through the tubes
  1972. >"You alright, love?" Octavia asks Vinyl
  1973. >Vinyl seemed like she just snapped out of a daze
  1974. >"Yeah, yeah I'm fine. It's just... I didn't realize how weak I was." She looks confused. "But now, my body feels so light. It's... hard to describe."
  1975. "That's good, right?" You inquire. "You are feeling better."
  1976. >"No, it's more than that." She looks thoughtful for a second, but before she can continue, the door opens
  1977. >A woman, wearing black clothes with a long leather coat walks in
  1978. >She has short, blond hair with some red mixed in, giving her a fiery look
  1979. >She takes a long look at all three of you
  1980. >Her eyes feels like they are looking past your skin
  1981. >"My name is Fury." She introduces herself. "I am the director of SHIELD." Her voice carries her authority
  1982. >"You are eye witnesses of the incident in Club Vendigo." She states. "If you feel alright, I have some questions to ask."
  1983. >"They've already took our statements." Octavia speaks. "I don't know what else we can tell you."
  1984. >Fury walks toward you and gestures to your bed. "May I?"
  1985. >"Y-yeah." You move to the side slightly and she sits down at your feet
  1986. >"You know that it was a SHIELD agent that called us for help." Octavia nods. "That agent was, and still is, AWOL. That was the last communication we recieved from him."
  1987. >You look at each other, wondering where she's going with this
  1988. >"Today, two HYDRA agents broke into his apartment." She furrows her brows. "They killed twelve agents and kidnapped another before escaping the scene."
  1989. "You don't think we are HYDRA, do you?" You blurt out
  1990. >"Believe me kid, if I did, you wouldn't be laying there comfortably." She answers. "I want to know what our agents said. Maybe it can give us a hint abour where he is."
  1991. >"You think he's hiding from you?" Vinyl asks
  1992. >"Maybe. It is more likely that he's trying to hide from HYDRA."
  1993. >What reason can there be to not come to SHIELD if you are trying to hide from HYDRA?
  1994. **There is a mole
  1995. >If that's the case none of you are safe here
  1996. "Why didn't he come here to hide?" You ask. "What if you have a mole and he knew that?"
  1997. >She gives you an amused look. "Smart thinking kid, but we are already investigating the possibility."
  1998. >"Anon's a smart boy." Vinyl says with a smug voice
  1999. >"He did not say much, the agent." Fortunutely Octavia diverts the subject. "But I remember that he said he was sorry. He sounded... upset."
  2000. >"Nothing else?" Fury persists, but Octavia just shakes her head
  2001. >Sighing, Fury stands up and walks toward the door. "Well then, I'll leave you to rest."
  2002. >She seemed reallytroubled when she spoke of the agents that died
  2003. >Should you do something? Could you find this missing agent if you used your powers?
  2004. **You could
  2005. >You did promise to keep the streets safe for Sunset. What better way there is than to help SHIELD?
  2006. >You hear the door close behind the director and grab the tube that's connected to you
  2007. >Better hurry if you want to catch up to her
  2008. >You pull out the tube from the IV in your arm and get up
  2009. >The blood inside drips onto the floor
  2010. >"Anon, what are you doing?" Octavia asks
  2011. >You squeeze the tube and hand it to Vinyl
  2012. "Hold this for a second. I'll be right back." You hurry out of the room, after Director Fury
  2013. >Fortunutely, she's still in sight
  2014. "Director!" You call out, making her turn around. "I think I can help you find your agent."
  2015. >She walks closer before asking. "How?"
  2016. "If I had an ability that could help, would you keep it off the books?"
  2017. >She gives you a suspicious look. "Are you asking me to violate an international agreement, Mr. X?"
  2018. "Maybe?" You cringe
  2019. >She nods. "I can do that."
  2021. >Be Octavia
  2022. >Anon just ripped off the tube from his arm and went after the Director
  2023. >You are left looking at the door, wondering what might be so important
  2024. >Looking back at Vinyl after a few seconds, you see her sucking the blood from Anon's tube
  2025. "Vinyl! What the hell?!" For a moment she looks at you with feral eyes before talking
  2026. >"S-sorry... It just smelled so tasty." She looks at the tube hungarily. "It was tasty."
  2027. >She turns to you with fearful eyes. "What's happening to me?"
  2028. >All you can do is to shake your head
  2029. "I don't know, but whatever this is, we will get through it together, okay?"
  2030. >"Okay." She looks back at the tube she's holding and back at you again
  2031. >It's a silent ask for permission and you give it to her with a nod of your head
  2032. >How could you not when she looked so... covetous and desperate?
  2033. >You lay on your side and watch her drink what little blood there is in the tube
  2034. >This whole thing reminds you of those vampire novels you secretly read
  2035. >Vinyl would never let it go if she knew
  2036. >That thing in the night club did bite her in the neck
  2037. >In the ambulance she had so many wounds and burn scars
  2038. >They told you that she... died, yet she came back, talking and everything!
  2039. >Not that you aren't happy about it, but surgeons said it was brain damage that may never heal
  2040. >Now she's just fine, drinking blood
  2041. >What more is that she threw up all the food she ate in the cafeteria
  2042. >If she's a vampire, does that mean she'll burn under the sun?
  2043. >How much blood will she need to survive? Can you supply her well enough?
  2044. >What if you can't? Will SHIELD help you? Will they let her live normally if you tell them?
  2045. >"Stop Tavi." You look at Vinyl. "I know what you're thinking. We'll deal with things as they come."
  2046. "Aren't you worried?" You ask. "I think you might be a...be a..."
  2047. >"Vampire?" She completes. "I'm terrified, but you said you'll be with me, right?"
  2048. "Yeah." She gets up from her bed and walks over. You scoot over for her to lay down
  2049. >She's unsuccessfully trying to get the tube out of the way
  2050. >You motion her to come closer and pull the tube out of her IV and put it over yourself
  2051. >After a moment of surprise, she lays down next to you and presses her forehead against yours
  2052. >"You are not afraid?" She asks
  2053. "Of you? Never. I trust you." You pass her the tube, spilling some blood on the bed. "I bet it tastes better than Anon's."
  2054. >She hesitates for a second before putting it in her mouth
  2055. >Her hand finds yours and your fingers intertwine. "Actually, it does taste better." She signs with an impish smile
  2056. >That gets a little laugh out of you
  2057. >You won't let anything happen to her, you will protect that smile
  2059. "Water." That's the third one you ordered
  2060. >The waitress is getting annoyed that you don't actually want anything that has a pricetag
  2061. >You are pretty sure you are not kicked out only because there were no other customers
  2062. >If you could be considered a customer that is, you were pretty much a free loader
  2063. >Waitress turns on the TV
  2064. ~...13 SHIELD agents were killed during the incident...~
  2065. >She skips the channel
  2066. "Wait, wait!" You call out. "Can you go back please?"
  2067. >Waitress gives you an annoyed look, but does as you asked
  2068. ~...officials are yet to make a statement about the event and fate of the missing operator is unclear. We will show you footage of the incident, recorded by a brave citizen. We must warn you, the images are very disturbing.~
  2069. >You are Sombra
  2070. >You are watching SHIELD agents getting torn apart by gunfire in front of your apartment building
  2071. >That woman they were facing got shot atleast twice now, but she doesn't even seem fazed by it
  2072. >This must be HYDRA, they are after you
  2073. >How did they know where you live? Were you being watched?
  2074. >If HYDRA is after you, you doubt you can evade them much longer
  2075. >The question is, do you go back to SHIELD?
  2076. >It is definitely a better alternative than getting caught by Nazis
  2077. >Suddenly you hear multiple vehicles parking outside
  2078. >Looking out the window, you see SUVs with SHIELD logos on them
  2079. >Guess that saves you the trouble of making the decision for yourself
  2080. >Agents scramble out to secure the perimeter while one of them opens the door for none other than Fury herself
  2081. >You must be in some trouble if Nick Fury came in person
  2082. >A boy is following her as she walks into the diner
  2083. >You feel like you've seen him before, but you are not sure where
  2084. >Fury opens the door and walks straight to you
  2085. >Waitress that was serving you moves out of Fury's way quickly and runs into the kitchen
  2086. >"Doctor Sombra, you're a hard man to find." She has a displeased look on her face
  2087. >Not surprising
  2088. "I uh... Had some health issues." You say half-heartedly
  2089. >"So I've heard." She answers with a stern look on her face. "I am hoping to hear more about it at the HQ." With that she turns around and starts walking
  2090. "Yes ma'am." You say as you rise to your feet and follow her outside
  2091. >You can only hope that your new condition will not be an issue for SHIELD
  2093. "Stop trashing around!" You are Tracey and you are currently interrogating the SHIELD agent you've captured this morning
  2094. "Do you know how hard it is to flay the skin while keeping the bleeding to a minimum!" You are met with unintelligible screaming
  2095. >Suddenly the screams stop
  2096. >You promptly go and check his pulse to see that he is indeed, still alive
  2097. "He passed out again~" You call out to Aryanne who's in the next room, looking out the window
  2098. >You walk and stand beside her. "This is a waste of time." She says. "No one gets their spine punctured and refuses to give intel."
  2099. >It's not that he didn't tell you anything, but any further questions to confirm the information he gave was met with contradictions
  2100. >In other worst he was lying to stop you from torturing him
  2101. "What will we do then?" You ask. "We don't have any other leads."
  2102. >"No, we don't." She says. "So we will make one for ourselves." She turns and looks at you. "I need you to implant a tracker behind his eye and two other random places of your choosing. Can you do that?"
  2103. "Oh, I see." You grin. "I'm on it, even made an accidental pun!" She gives you a small smile as you go and pick up a scalpel
  2105. >Be Lemon Zest
  2106. >You are in the SUV with Fury and Anon, Dracula is riding in another one
  2107. >This one has facing back seats, you are sitting on one side while Anon and Fury are sitting on the other
  2108. >You reevaluate your decision to go with Anon as your eyes sting from tiredness
  2109. >It's been almost 24 hours since you last slept
  2110. >Normally you could handle it, but this seats are too damn comfortable and you are extra tired from using your powers almost all the time
  2111. >It's hard to open your eyes, you need something to keep you awake or you will get caught
  2112. >Looking at Anon sitting next to Fury a devious idea comes to your mind
  2113. >You'll need to extend the use of your powers for a moment, but it'll be so worth it!
  2114. >You get up and turn Fury's hand palm up on the seat
  2115. >Then you take Anon's hand and put it on top of hers
  2116. >Now to intertwine their fingers aaannnd... show time
  2117. >It takes them a few moments to realize they are holding hands
  2118. >"Eep! Anonymous!?" Fury quickly moves away with a questioning look on her face
  2119. >Did she just say 'eep' ?
  2120. >You'd expect her to be more... professional
  2121. >"M-Miss Fury!?" Anon recoils
  2122. >"Why are you holding my hand?"
  2123. >"Why are you holding my hand?"
  2124. >Awww... They said it at the same time!
  2125. >"I have no idea how that happened!" Anon tries to explain
  2126. >"I did NOT hold your hand!" Fury exclaims
  2127. >You are just dying of laughter in front of them
  2128. >They look each other with suspicious eyes for a few seconds
  2129. >"Lets not talk about this ever again." Fury suggests
  2130. >"Agreed." Anon says as he slowly goes back to his proper sitting position
  2131. >Fury does the same while carefully watching Anon
  2132. >They are so cute with those red cheeks!
  2134. >You are Ursula
  2135. >Last night after you got attacked by that strange man Spider-Woman rescued you
  2136. >She left you on a rooftop while she was fighting him so you'd be safe
  2137. >You are not sure what happened after she followed him into the nightclub, but thankfully roof door of the building was open so you could come back home without your father noticing
  2138. >"You go to buy flour today?" You father draws your attention
  2139. "Oh, um... Yeah, I almost forgot. Thanks Daddy." You say honestly
  2140. >It was a stressful night and flour was the last thing you were thinking about right now
  2141. >"Are you sick? You are not eating breakfast." Your father asks with a hint of worry in his voice
  2142. "Ah yes, I'm fine daddy." You put some white cheese in your mouth. "I was thinking if I should make brownies again or maybe try something else."
  2143. >He smiles. "You are good girl. It is good to help people." He gets up from the table. "You pick up dishes, yes?"
  2144. >You go to see Sunset after washing the dishes
  2145. >She has work today and she has a bad habit of oversleeping
  2146. >You knock on her door. "Sunny! Are you awake?" No answer. "You'll be late for work again!"
  2147. >Well, it won't be the first time you had to pull her out of bed
  2148. >You try to open the door, but it's stuck again
  2149. >Giving it a few pushes, you get it open and walk inside
  2150. >She's not in her bed. Maybe she woke up early today?
  2151. >Looking around, you see her clothes scattered everywhere
  2152. >Poor girl will be tired when she comes back. She wouldn't mind you tidying up the place, right?
  2153. >You just started to pick up her clothes when you inhale her scent
  2154. >It brings back the memory of the moment Spider-Women carried you to the rooftop
  2155. >It's the same scent. You bring the shirt to your face and smell it again to be sure
  2156. >You just put the clothes on her bed and exit the apartment
  2157. >There is no way. She can't be Spider-Woman... right?
  2158. >You go to the living room and take a seat beside your father, who's watching morning news
  2159. ~...many SHIELD agents lost their lives in...~
  2160. >That would explain her strange injuries and her coming home late every day
  2161. ~... in other news...~
  2162. >But if it was her last night, then where is she now?
  2163. >Did that man do something to her? Is she hurt?
  2164. >"I am happy you didn't go out tonight." You look at you father curiously. "News speak of fight between Spider-Woman and some freak. They say she got hurt bad."
  2165. >Oh no...
  2167. >"Ouch! Be gentle!" Tracey complains as you pull another bullet out
  2168. "You are such a baby sometimes." You say as you continue to the next bullet hole
  2169. >"You pulled out a bullet from my boob!" She objects. "I bet you'd cry if you got shot in the boob."
  2170. >She whimpers as you re-open her wound with a clamp
  2171. "I think you are enjoying this." If you couldn't tell by now, you are Aryanne
  2172. >Tracey made quick work of those trackers and you dropped that barely alive man to a sidewalk
  2173. >Now you are back at the safehouse, getting bullets out of Tracey's chest so she doesn't get heavy metal poisoning
  2174. >"You got me." She smiles and gives you a seductive hum as you pull another bullet from her chest
  2175. "Not now Tracey. We have a mission." You say as you patch her up, but she's not having it
  2176. >"C'mon, just a kiss." She grabs your cheek. "You know how it makes me when you hurt me."
  2177. >And she knows you can't resist when she talks like that
  2178. >You lean in and give her a kiss
  2179. "You can have more when we're done with this mission, successfully." You add
  2180. >"Oh, we will succeed!" She says enthusiastically
  2181. >A beep from your tracking device warns you that your bait is on the move
  2182. "Time to move." You get up and start getting your weapons while Tracey puts her clothes on
  2183. >"Where is he going?" She asks
  2184. "Looking at the current trajectory, Canterlot General Hospital," You say checking the tracker, "but I think they will take him to a SHIELD facility when they find out who he is."
  2185. >"What if they take him to a different facility then our target's in?"
  2186. "There will be someone that knows where he is in that facility." You respond
  2187. >"I'm gonna get shot again, aren't I?" She asks.
  2188. "Possibly." You rephrase. "Extremely likely, but I'll get them out for you." She giggles
  2189. >"I'm gonna get shot if you keep saying things like that." You laugh as you take the lead
  2190. >It's not long before you are sitting in the car parked in front of the Canterlot General Hospital
  2191. >The corner you parked has perfect view of both the main entry and the emergency entry of the hospital
  2192. >"So what's the plan?" Tracey asks
  2193. "We wait for SHIELD to come and pickup our bait, then we follow them to a base and find someone that knows where this Doctor is."
  2194. >She looks bored already. "I hate waiting."
  2195. "And because you tortured him so much they will probably need to put him under surgery." You tease
  2196. >"Hey! You ordered me to!" She's gives you a semi-frustrated response. "It's not my fault that I'm good at my job."
  2197. "Yeah, it is." You smirk. "You did do a good job though."
  2198. >"Hell yeah, I did! That guy would sell his own mother out if I asked for it!" She grins widely. "He screamed so much too."
  2199. >You smile at her getting perked up so easily as you look back at the hospital doors
  2201. >Be Octavia
  2202. >Vinyl fell asleep after her... feeding
  2203. >You have a vampire girlfriend
  2204. >You bite you lip
  2205. >Not everyday a girl's fantasies come true
  2206. >Now there is one important question that needs answering
  2207. >Can you feed her directly without turning into a vampire yourself?
  2208. >Hopefully the answer is yes so you can-
  2209. >Sound of the door opening interrupts your thought process
  2210. >"How is the transfusion going?" It's the nurse
  2211. >She gives you and Vinyl's sleeping form a surprised look
  2212. "I'd say it went well." You say with a hushed voice
  2213. >"Where is Anon?" She whispers
  2214. "I'm not sure. I think he went with Fury." She raises an eyebrow
  2215. >"Huh... Well, since everything seems fine, I'll give you some privacy, but" She adds. "I still need to do some tests when she wakes up."
  2216. "Sure." You nod and she leaves
  2217. >You barely turned your gaze back to Vinyl when Fury walks in with Anon and some other man in tow
  2218. >You unwillingly shake Vinyl awake
  2219. >"Hmm, what? I'm already full." She mumbles before she sees your visitors. "Oh, you're back."
  2220. >"That we are." Fury speaks. "I brought the agent that called SHIELD in for help."
  2221. >"Hey." He simply raises his hand to greet you
  2222. >"I thought it would be better to take his first statement when you are all together." Fury states and gestures you three. "I already read your statements, but feel free to intervene if you want to add anything."
  2223. >She turns to the man in the long black jacket. "Let's hear your version of the events."
  2224. >Man lets out a long sigh
  2225. >"First, you should know that, I am the villain in this story." He starts. "I was experimenting with some kind of DNA adhesive when a vampire bat drank the blood I was experimenting before biting me."
  2226. >"The adhesive fused my DNA with the bat's, altering my body significantly."
  2227. >You think you know where this is going
  2228. >"They were upgrades, for the most part." He continues. "But it devolved my digestive system to the likes of a vampire bat. I can no longer eat anything humans normally eat."
  2229. >"I need pre-digested and absorbed nutrients. Namely blood."
  2230. >"So you attacked people to feed?" Fury asks
  2231. >"No, I was feeding on a dog when I heard this girl watching me." He shakes his head. "I didn't want more attention, but when I turned around to explain she started screaming. So I tried to cover her mouth and that's when Spider-Woman came to rescue her."
  2232. >"I tried to tell her that I didn't want to fight, but she wasn't having it. We fought and I lost it after a pretty bad hit. When I came to, I was in the nightclub standing over you guys."
  2233. >He looks at you for a moment. "You know the rest. I left the club after calling for help and spent the night wandering around the city until SHIELD found me."
  2234. >You should be angry
  2235. >This man hurt you and your friends
  2236. >But... Vinyl can talk thanks to him
  2237. >"So you are my ma-" You tightly squeeze Vinyl's hand. "Ouch!"
  2238. >She gives you a questioning look
  2239. >You lightly shake your head
  2240. >She looks at you for a moment before talking again
  2241. >"You should check on Spider-Woman." Vinyl says. "She got hurt the worst."
  2242. >He looks with a pained expression in his face
  2243. >"May I?" He asks facing Fury
  2244. >She nods, "Yeah, lets go."
  2245. >You look at Anon, he seems troubled
  2246. >Before you can ask however, he leaves the room following Fury
  2247. >You wonder what's going on with him
  2249. >You are Anonymous
  2250. >Standing next to Fury in Sunset's room
  2251. >"I did this?" Sombra speaks with an incredulous voice. "I am a monster."
  2252. "No." You state coldly. "I did this."
  2253. >"What?" Sombra looks at you with surprise while Fury seems to be expecting more from you
  2254. "I have a power." You start when Fury cuts in
  2255. >"Are you sure you want to tell about this to Doctor Sombra." She asks. "I cannot guaratee his discretion."
  2256. "I can." You reply and continue. "It is triggered by questions and gives me the answers to those questions."
  2257. >"So you did this how?" Sombra asks
  2258. "My friend, Vinyl, the blue haired girl in the next room, she was mute until today." You sigh. "So I asked myself, how can I make her talk?"
  2259. >"What was the answer?" Fury looks more intrigued now
  2260. "Spider-Woman needed to be stabbed in her leg. So I arrenged a few things and she got stabbed in her leg."
  2261. >"What do you mean you arranged a few things?" Fury sounds upset
  2262. >You don't blame her, you are upset with yourself as well
  2263. "That's not important right now." You answer. "The thing is Vinyl can talk. She recovered from brain injury over night and it had to do something with you attacking us in the club."
  2264. >"How do you know?" You give Sombra a dissappointed look. "Oh, right... So can you answer all questions?"
  2265. **No
  2266. "Apperantly, I can't." You say plainly
  2267. >"What are your limits then?" Fury asks
  2268. **You cannot predict the exact time of a future event that you did not directly cause by the means of this power
  2269. **You cannot answer anything that involves a different timeline from which you are in
  2270. **You cannot know what others think
  2271. **You cannot-
  2272. "The list is longer than I think." You answer. "Do you want me to write it down?"
  2273. >She seems to be thinking about it for a second. "No. Just be more careful when you use your powers from now on. I'll be watching."
  2274. >You nod
  2275. >"Good, I will take Doctor Sombra for further questioning. Until next time." She walks out with Sombra in tow, leaving you alone with your comatosed friend
  2277. >You are... Sunset?
  2278. >You are not sure about where you are
  2279. >It's dark and cold
  2280. >It's hurting all over
  2281. >Wait no, it's not dark
  2282. >Your eyes are closed
  2283. >You... can't open them
  2284. *Beep* *Beep*
  2285. >This sound is familiar somehow
  2286. >You listen harder
  2287. >Is that a heart monitor?
  2288. >Someone is talking
  2289. >"...next room, she was mute until today."
  2290. >Is that Anon?
  2291. >The voice is fading away, you need to concentrate
  2292. >"...Spider-Woman needed to be stabbed in her leg. So I arranged a few things."
  2293. >He planned this? How is that possible? Why?
  2294. >You try to talk, but your lips don't obey
  2295. >You are paralyzed, all you can do is listen
  2296. >For now...
  2297. >"...The list is longer than I think."
  2298. >What list? Nothing good you presume
  2299. >"...I will be watching."
  2300. >That woman's voice is the last thing you hear as your conciousness fades once more
  2301. >What did you get yourself into?
