  7. [2016-12-21 13:26:13] <Shoat> 3eceived your last contribution.  The most useful goods have been distributed to the troops in the Sentinal.  As usual, the firearms you have gathered have been traded to our Barnstormer friends for caps.  I wouldn't be surprised if you find yourselves up against the same guns a week from now.  Recycling is a bitch, isn't it?  
  8. [2016-12-21 13:26:21] <Shoat> 3Keep up the good work.  Your crew's operations are keeping our soldiers in the pass fed and well-armed.  I sense a promotion in your future.

  11. [2016-12-21 13:26:49] <Shoat> 3Bookwright finishes scribbling all the messages down in yet another notebook, titled, "INTERNAL SOLARIS CORRESPONDENCE". He takes particular note of the location of the password for the restricted section of the biolabs.
  12. [2016-12-21 13:26:51] <Shoat> 3...
  13. [2016-12-21 13:27:34] <Shoat> 3CopyCat, Golden_Dream and Star Dust (the shy little speedster) find themselves facing one windigo.   Get_Lost discovers herself facing the same one as Major Tripwire and Noble_Heart.  The wounded one faces off against Shatara, Bookwright, Major Bloodstreak and the Enclave patrol leader.
  14. [2016-12-21 13:27:39] <Shoat> 3CopyCat sinks to her knees as the ice takes hold. "Though quarrels arise, their numbers are few, Laughter and singing will see us... through..."
  15. [2016-12-21 13:27:48] <Shoat> 3Bookwright smiles sweetly at the windego. "Aren't you just the sweetest little ice monster?"
  16. [2016-12-21 13:27:55] <Shoat> 3Noble_Heart moves to shelter Get Lost as best she could.
  17. [2016-12-21 13:28:00] <Shoat> 3CopyCat reaches out to her friends through the Bonds she had with each of them, sharing the song she felt inside her heart.
  18. [2016-12-21 13:28:12] <Shoat> 3Noble_Heart waved a wing to Tripwire as well. Though she did not have high hopes to cooperation from the pegasus.
  19. [2016-12-21 13:28:22] <Shoat> 3Golden_Dream frowns, then seems pained as she goes for her rope. With some effort and some knotting, she attempts to pull Star Dust out of the snow and comes face to face with one of the Windigoes. Oh, hi.
  20. [2016-12-21 13:28:33] <Shoat> 3Star Dust struggles in the snow.  "Help!"  Tripwire stares at the wing offered as if it was a foreign thing.  Then flinches back as the windigo lands between him and Noble_Heart.
  21. [2016-12-21 13:28:37] <Shoat> 3...
  22. [2016-12-21 13:31:31] <Shoat> 3The shaman steps through.  "Step forward," he calls to CopyCat in Jadi.  "We shall see if the shadows hide in you."
  23. [2016-12-21 13:31:36] <Shoat> 3CopyCat pulls off her helmet, letting her aquamarine mane cascade down her shoulders and neck. "Ahh, that did it!" She aims a Winning™ smile at the guards... then at the shaman. "Oh-kay!" She steps forward.
  24. [2016-12-21 13:31:42] <Shoat> 3The zebra shaman opens a bag and dips a hoof in it.  When it withdraws it, his hoof is covered in a thick yellow oil.  He reaches up and smears the oil across CopyCat's face.
  25. [2016-12-21 13:31:47] <Shoat> 3CopyCat begins to glow.  The other zebras gasp.  The shaman steps back, looking grim.  "They are like the others," he says.  "They are not of the Empress, nor of Her Shadow Pony ally.  They are... displaced."
  26. [2016-12-21 13:31:49] <Shoat> 3...
  27. [2016-12-21 13:32:05] <Shoat> 3Cottonseed speaks to someone off-mic, then says, "We do have something I can offer, if you have a way of making use of it."
  28. [2016-12-21 13:32:10] <Shoat> 3CopyCat pipes up, "Some members of our crew may have alchemy knowledge."
  29. [2016-12-21 13:32:16] <Shoat> 3Cottonseed explains, "There is an old zebra recipe for a magical body paint.  When painted on a person, the oil will reveal if they are a changeling in disguise."  He adds, "It is how we caught the changeling who intended to replace Fluttershy."
  30. [2016-12-21 13:32:23] <Shoat> 3"We could try to fly some samples to you, but that would take several days.  And the flight through Shattered Hoof Ridge is a hazardous one.  We wouldn't want to lose griffins in the attempt.  It would be easier if we could just send you the recipe and you had someone who could make it on-site."
  31. [2016-12-21 13:32:31] <Shoat> 3Noble_Heart lets out a quiet 'hrm'. "We will see what can be arranged. We have had contact with some of the Zebras beyond the border. WIth luck we may be able to get their help producing some. Thank you."
  32. [2016-12-21 13:32:33] <Shoat> 3...
  33. [2016-12-21 13:34:49] <Shoat> 3Dragon_Lord_Ember frowns.  Then turns to Mitzi.  "In the spirit of building alliances, I can do you a favor in return.  I will send Citrine Glow to accompany you as my ambassador from the Dragonlands."
  34. [2016-12-21 13:35:03] <Shoat> 3Dragon_Lord_Ember looks to Mitzi.  "Keep her safe.  She will be very helpful.  And she enjoys the benefit of being a crystal pony, and thus immune to the plague."
  35. [2016-12-21 13:35:05] <Shoat> 3...
  36. [2016-12-21 13:35:45] <Shoat> 3Dragon_Lord_Ember adds in, "We believe that the seraphs are zebras from the islands that ponies obliterated with the power of the sun.  Survivors... of a sort."
  37. [2016-12-21 13:35:53] <Shoat> 3"...Celestia One is flame and heat, overpowering brightness and searing light. But it's still a megaspell."  Bookwright shivers. "It's still hideously powerful magic shaped into a weapon of obliteration, the same as the balefire bombs. That it caused similar effects, similar undeaths, should come as no surprise."
  38. [2016-12-21 13:36:00] <Shoat> 3Noble_Heart looks up towards Dragon_Lord_Ember, nodding her head. "That seems consistent. The Celestia One, a light-based megaspell to focus the power of the sun into a beam of concentrated energy, was used to attack Zebra missile bases when the megaspell exchange began. To cut off their ability to launch an excess of balefire weapons."
  39. [2016-12-21 13:36:05] <Shoat> 3Citrine Glow says, "There's old stories that say that the seraphs are driven mad, searching the world for their shadows, which were burned off from them and became living things of their own."
  40. [2016-12-21 13:36:18] <Shoat> 3"All I can say for sure is that they are extremely difficult to kill," Dragon_Lord_Ember says.  "Artillery, claws and spikes just pass through them."
  41. [2016-12-21 13:36:20] <Shoat> 3...
  42. [2016-12-21 13:36:54] <Shoat> 3Mitzi decides to try something a little more direct. She raises a claw and extends it to jab into the ground where Jugeote's false shadow was. Considerng the bullet didn't do anything, she wasn't expecting much.
  43. [2016-12-21 13:37:05] <Shoat> 3Jugeote collapses with a gargled scream even before Mitzi's claw touches the floor... the moment when the shadow from Mitzi's claw touches her shadow.  By the time she hits the floor, she looks worn and malnurished, like she has suffered a wasting disease.
  44. [2016-12-21 13:37:10] <Shoat> 3Mitzi frowns and withdraws her claw, stepping back from everyone else to avoid further shadow on shadow contact. She grimaces as she sees the zebra's condition, but... she was alive. "Git hur tu doctur, now!" She barks.
  45. [2016-12-21 13:37:29] <Shoat> 3Get_Lost trots next to mitzi "i'm the doctor, but i know what got her and... well... i dont' think it will be easy to heal with conventional methods..."
  46. [2016-12-21 13:37:37] <Shoat> 3Bookwright gives Mitzi the side eye. "Playing musical chairs with this shadow is only prolonging the inevitable and hurting people. I realize I was just disagreeing with CopyCat earlier but I think we're out of options now."
  47. [2016-12-21 13:37:42] <Shoat> 3Mitzi steps back from Get Lost to keep distance. She nods to Bookwright and looks saddened. "Uh deedn't mean fur dat."
  48. [2016-12-21 13:37:47] <Shoat> 3...
  49. [2016-12-21 13:37:55] <Shoat> 3Mitzi steps into the room alone and moves to the back
  50. [2016-12-21 13:38:02] <Shoat> 3The armsmaster closes the door, sealing Mitzi inside.
  51. [2016-12-21 13:38:04] <Shoat> 3...
  52. [2016-12-21 13:38:19] <Shoat> 3Fallout: Beyond Equestria, Session Two Hundred and Six: All Roads Lead... (Part 8) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fE0iBDl3NHw
  53. [2016-12-21 13:38:25] <Shoat> 3--- Session Begins ---
  54. [2016-12-21 13:39:13] <Shoat> 3The loud thud of an explosion echoes through the halls of /Lunar Rising/.
  55. [2016-12-21 13:40:50] <Shoat> 6> "Attention!  Monster breach in section 12!  Response Scenerio Ursa.  This is not a drill!"
  56. [2016-12-21 13:41:15] * Golden_Dream inhales sharply. "AND THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED." She pulled out a crossbow and loaded the enchanted bolts. She wasn't great with them, but it was better than nothing. "RIGHT THEN. MITZI, CONGRATULATIONS, WE'RE GOING TO SECTION TWELVE."
  57. [2016-12-21 13:41:58] <Shoat> 3Several pegasi swoop into the corridor, lead by Major Tripwire.  Wind Weaver is among them.  "Mitzi?"
  58. [2016-12-21 13:42:08] * Get_Lost shrugs "looks like a sound change of plans."
  59. [2016-12-21 13:42:38] <Shoat> 3The Armsmaster looks at Golden_Dream.  "We're already /in/ Section 12."
  60. [2016-12-21 13:42:46] * Mitzi frowns and holds a paw up at Wind Weaver. "Keep yur distance," she barks. "Nasty shadow ting eez on me."
  61. [2016-12-21 13:44:18] * Golden_Dream stands in front of Wind Weaver. "She got a thing living in her shadow. If y' touch shadows," Goldy points at Jugeote. "That happens t' you. Mitzi already took this once and didn't learn her lesson. If y' do it again, she'll die."
  62. [2016-12-21 13:44:28] <Shoat> 3The Armsmaster looks at the group.  "You're civilians.  You should evacuate this section!" he urges.  "Now excuse me.  I need to open the armory."
  63. [2016-12-21 13:45:41] <Mitzi> Mitzi looks around. "
  64. [2016-12-21 13:45:43] <Mitzi> W
  65. [2016-12-21 13:45:47] * Get_Lost "i beg your pardon, armsmaster: we're not military, that's true, but we are neither civilians." smiles "we're wasteland heroes"
  66. [2016-12-21 13:46:15] <Shoat> 3Wind Weaver cries out in distress.  "Mitzi!?  You can't go dying now!  You have a people to lead!  You have to be Alpha, remember?"  She turns to Get_Lost.  "Can Mitzi survive that thing leaving her... again?"
  67. [2016-12-21 13:46:20] <Mitzi> * "where eez da flyeen ting dat brought me here? Uh have sum ting dat cud help."
  68. [2016-12-21 13:46:32] * Shatara ruffles his feathers. "For your information, I am a mighty mercenary!"
  69. [2016-12-21 13:47:07] <Shoat> 3The Armsmaster shakes his head, but smiles.  "Do as you wish then.  Just don't get in anypony's way."  He turns tail and flies off towards the armory.
  70. [2016-12-21 13:47:12] * Mitzi looks to Wind Weaver. "Uh'm fine fur now, uh have better chance uv liveen Eef eet jumps again den any ponee."
  71. [2016-12-21 13:47:23] * Get_Lost mumbles for a moment "good question. i guess that the only way to know is to try? mitzi, how do you feel about it?"
  72. [2016-12-21 13:47:57] <Shoat> 3Not far away, the sound of rapid plasma fire can be heard, and a roar of flame.
  73. [2016-12-21 13:48:52] * Get_Lost "make the troops fall back, we call dibs on this crisis."
  74. [2016-12-21 13:50:06] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire orders his pegasi to form a line.  To Get_Lost, "Yeah, that's not going to happen."  To Wind Weaver, "Any idea how to deal with these things?"
  75. [2016-12-21 13:50:17] * Golden_Dream cranes her neck back and makes a groaning sound that came from deep in her core. She then looks up at the Armsmaster leave. "BRING PLASMA GRENADES."
  76. [2016-12-21 13:50:21] * Bookwright frowns. "I think we're down to legends now. Remember what Citrine Glow said, about the seraphs and their shadows? Well, /this/ is a frigging shadow and the thing out there is evidently made of fire."
  77. [2016-12-21 13:50:54] * Golden_Dream thinks. "I say, get Mitzi to huggit."
  78. [2016-12-21 13:50:56] <Shoat> 3Citrine Glow mentions, "I also said seraphs were a danger to /dragons/."
  79. [2016-12-21 13:51:21] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire hurmphs.  "So are *we*."
  80. [2016-12-21 13:52:04] <Mitzi> Mitzi adds in. "So wuz Ur father. "
  81. [2016-12-21 13:52:10] * Get_Lost smiles even wider "do you, major? afs far as i know we got the same chances. we resurrected a dragon and defeated a god"
  82. [2016-12-21 13:52:43] <Shoat> 3Wind Weaver looks at Golden_Dream.  Then back at the door behind which Mitzi is locked.  "That... might work.  But we don't know for sure what will happen if we get these two beings together.  They might cancel each other out... or they might turn into a stronger whole."
  83. [2016-12-21 13:53:29] <Shoat> 3Wind Weaver shakes her head.  "Either way, I'm pretty sure the host won't survive."
  84. [2016-12-21 13:54:03] * Get_Lost "stronger doesn't mean hostile. also, making tho halves a whole sounds just like the right thing to do, you know? the way the river should flow and stuff. let's fix the circle of life"
  85. [2016-12-21 13:54:10] * Golden_Dream looks at Citrine. "Yeah, but you're /collectively/ a danger to dragons. Those things /individually/ eat dragon lunches. Now if we're done comparing wing sizes, I have a plan B."
  86. [2016-12-21 13:54:30] * Bookwright "If we don't do /something/ a lot more people are going to die. From the sound of it your soldiers aren't any closer to resolving this with gunfire than we are with poking it with sticks."
  87. [2016-12-21 13:55:16] * Golden_Dream sets the CRUX down with a meaty 'kchunk'. "Anyfolk got a suitable plan C?"
  88. [2016-12-21 13:55:21] * Get_Lost "bookie, do we still have seeds of the tree of life? if we give mitzi one, it should make everything safer"
  89. [2016-12-21 13:55:54] * Noble_Heart scowls. "We also know this thing is immune to conventional attacks. The dragons had artillery and walls and guns aplenty. And they did nothing to stop these creatures." She shook her head. "Do we still have the shadow? The legends also said they hunt their shadows, perhaps it is time this one found it."
  90. [2016-12-21 13:56:00] * Get_Lost "as in, the shadow should suck a lot of life energy,  but there should still be plenty enough for mitzi to move on"
  91. [2016-12-21 13:56:35] * Mitzi looks to Wind Weaver. "Ur claws deednt hurt da shadow, but Uh have sumteen in da ship dat might wurk Eef Get's idea duznt wurk."
  92. [2016-12-21 13:57:08] <Shoat> 3The sound of plasma fire -- a LOT of it -- rages slightly closer than before.
  93. [2016-12-21 13:57:59] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire suggests to Golden_Dream, "Maybe, but an Enclave Raptor is a threat to a dragon, and we happen to have one of those.  Not to mention the armaments on this city."   He looks down the hall as his soldiers tense.  "That doesn't sound like conventional pony weapons are doing much.  But if we can lead it outside, turn the city guns on it..."
  94. [2016-12-21 13:58:04] * Get_Lost "really, major! shooting a star with plasma is like trying to make pinkie pie sleepy while feeding her suga bombs! make the troops fall back and give us a chance"
  95. [2016-12-21 13:59:32] <Shoat> 3Wind Weaver nods to what Get_Lost is saying.  But Citrine Glow argues, "Dragons have killed seraphs, but it took dragon fire..."  She looks to Get_Lost.  "Magical energy works.  You just need a LOT of it."
  96. [2016-12-21 14:00:16] <Pony_72689> Mitzi stands up, keeping her distance from other ponies but waiting for an indication of where to go. She looks to Wind Weaver. "Uh have a Thunder Cannon. Da Old Albino gave eet tu me."
  97. [2016-12-21 14:02:15] * Golden_Dream narrows her eyes. Waitaminute. "Shatara, load Blood with th' good shit. We wanna kill a pissed off light thing, we need t' fuck it up with an equally pissed-off dark thing."\
  98. [2016-12-21 14:05:44] * Get_Lost frowns "this won't get mitzi rid of the shadow, kid... shouldn't we at least try to make them join together?"
  99. [2016-12-21 14:09:06] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire's frown increases.  The sound of the battle draws closer.
  100. [2016-12-21 14:10:32] * Shatara nods. "Right." He dramatically pumps the shotgun...dropping a loaded shell on the ground. Which he sheepishly picks up.
  101. [2016-12-21 14:16:12] * Golden_Dream frowns at Get. "Well. There's a reason why that there's plan A." She loads a bolt into the crossbow, and thumps the Mitzicrate twice. "RIGHT. IT'S COMING. TAKE COVER, MITZI, PREPARE TO ENGAGE IN VIGOROUS DOGGYHUGS."
  102. [2016-12-21 14:16:22] * Golden_Dream then takes her own advice.
  103. [2016-12-21 14:16:49] * Get_Lost smiles at goldie "you're the tactician, ok"
  104. [2016-12-21 14:16:51] <Shoat> 3"All right," Major Tripwire states.  "*I'm* doing this.  Everyone else move back.  You..." he points to Bookwright, "Open that door.  Mitzi: I'm coming in!"
  105. [2016-12-21 14:21:38] * Bookwright does not open that door.
  106. [2016-12-21 14:22:34] * Bookwright "Major, what do you intend?"
  107. [2016-12-21 14:24:23] * Mitzi perks her ears towards the sounds of violence. She turns away from the voices of her companions and turns out the lights in the room for a moment, just listening to see if her sensative ears could pick up anything from the shadow.
  108. [2016-12-21 14:24:49] <Shoat> 3"Really?  'Hellhound sacrifices her life to save Lunar Rising; Enclave officer stands by and watches'?  Not going to happen."  Major Tripwire jabs a hoof in the direction of the energy weapons fire.  "Now.  We literally do not have all day."
  109. [2016-12-21 14:25:15] * Bookwright nods. "As you like it."
  110. [2016-12-21 14:25:29] * Bookwright flings open the door. "Mitzi, the major has volunteered."
  111. [2016-12-21 14:26:27] * Get_Lost thinks for a moment, then nods "okay. this one is yours... see you on the other side"
  112. [2016-12-21 14:26:44] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire turns to Get_Lost.  "If you have any way of making this more survivable for the hellhound civilian, now's the time."  He steps into the storage unit.  "Mitzi, I'm here to confiscate your shadow."
  113. [2016-12-21 14:27:18] * Mitzi looks to the front of the crate and turns the light back on. "Yu sure?" She doesn't stop him from getting closer, though she glances to Get_Lost as she holds out a paw to hold the Major up a moment.
  114. [2016-12-21 14:28:19] * Get_Lost "yes: mitzi should eat one of the seeds we left and... well, i'd like you, major, to do that, too... it could make you a hero instead of a martyr...."
  115. [2016-12-21 14:28:42] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire looks at Get_Lost and nods.  "Okay then.  Let's have them."  
  116. [2016-12-21 14:29:03] * Noble_Heart scowls. "We do not like this. How many enclave officers remain? How many would you trust to run this facility?" She furrowed her brow at that, then shook her head.
  117. [2016-12-21 14:29:46] <Shoat> 3Mitzi feels a sense of rising panic that is not her own.  But it is easy for her to ignore.  Unlike Snowhare, she isn't driven to bolt.
  118. [2016-12-21 14:30:27] * Mitzi blinks and glances at the shadow. "Wait!" She calls out. "Uh felt sumteen. Eet wanted tu run... und da mare frum before did run." She frowns.
  119. [2016-12-21 14:31:50] <Shoat> 3"The city can survive without me."  Major Tripwire glances back at Noble_Heart.  "When we first met, I was trying to kill you and your friends.  Back in Gaia Valley.  Since then, you've saved me an my troops from Windigos, and replanted our city where we can at least try again to thrive.  I owe you this."
  120. [2016-12-21 14:33:42] <Shoat> 3With a gruff scoff, he adds, "I'm an Enclave Loyalist.  My life belongs to the Enclave.  Not going to let a civilian do what I'm here to do."  With a little laugh.  "Not going to let a damned /hellhound/ become the city hero either.  That's too much irony to live with."
  121. [2016-12-21 14:35:12] * Noble_Heart grins, maybe a little wickedly, "But it would prevent Sonica from arguing their lack of character or personage, We should think." She glances in the direction of the oncoming fire. "And it would seem that this particular shadow is most recalcitrant against coming close to the light. We should rather not risk it fleeing to another victim."
  122. [2016-12-21 14:35:38] * Get_Lost "uhm, major... i think you need to know a thing. whispers in his ear"
  123. [2016-12-21 14:38:57] * Get_Lost the steps back
  124. [2016-12-21 14:39:42] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire frowns.  "Well, fuck."  Then looks back then down at the seed.  "Bottoms up."
  125. [2016-12-21 14:42:51] * Mitzi takes the seed and weighs it in her hand. "Eez dere a chance we might need dis later?"
  126. [2016-12-21 14:42:56] <Mitzi> *paw
  127. [2016-12-21 14:44:09] * Golden_Dream looks down the hall. "If y' keep thinkin' like that, we'll never use the damn thing. This is the one time we can. Consume."
  128. [2016-12-21 14:44:30] * Bookwright "Is there a chance it will save your furry hide right now? Gulp it down, Mitzi. We already unkilled two hundred baby dragons, destroyed the mother of balefire, and made the elements of harmony with them. It's not like they got wasted or anything."
  129. [2016-12-21 14:45:19] * Mitzi nods. "Alright." She swallows it in one go.
  130. [2016-12-21 14:45:40] * Get_Lost "use it and move on with the plan or there won't be anypony to save!"
  131. [2016-12-21 14:46:04] * Bookwright 's glasses fall off his nose, and he splutters in indignation for a few moments as he searches for them.
  132. [2016-12-21 14:46:52] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire swallows his seed, then moves forward.  His shadow touches Mitzi's shadow.  Mitzi collapses.
  133. [2016-12-21 14:48:41] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire turns, his voice a bit higher, a bit shaken.  "Okay, everyone, stay back.  I'm about to go give a minor sun... doggy hugs."
  134. [2016-12-21 14:49:17] * Mitzi groans as she hits the floor. "Uh need sumteen tu eat."
  135. [2016-12-21 14:50:13] * Noble_Heart stays well away from the Major. Watching him as he turns to go. "Good luck."
  136. [2016-12-21 14:50:47] * Golden_Dream coughs. "Um, no. How about this, we set up interference, distract it, then you come at it from behind. If it sees you comin' at it, it'll jus' vaporize you before you can pass the 'good news' along."
  137. [2016-12-21 14:51:52] * Get_Lost "the less it stays in the major, the more he has chances to survive. if you want to do something, goldi, just do it"
  138. [2016-12-21 14:51:57] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire looks at Golden_Dream.  "If you want to do that, I suggest you hurry."  His voice sounds strained.  
  139. [2016-12-21 14:52:52] * Golden_Dream nods, then sprints out of the hallway, carrying her crossbow. Careful, Goldy. Careful. You're dealing with a dragon slayer here. Take this easy.
  140. [2016-12-21 14:56:29] <Shoat> 3The sound of plasma-fire is closer, but not as feverish.  
  141. [2016-12-21 14:57:24] * Get_Lost looks at the others are we really waiting here? "doesn't even wait for a reply and follows goldie"
  142. [2016-12-21 14:57:28] <Shoat> 3Golden_Dream reaches the hallway, turns a corner, and can see the light show coming from around the next corner at the end of the cross hallway.
  143. [2016-12-21 14:58:37] <Shoat> 3The flashes of pink and green are consumed in a roar of orange-yellow light and a blastwave of stifling heat.  The sound of weapons fire dies off.
  144. [2016-12-21 15:03:13] * Golden_Dream shifts into the fire. Let's get this rodeo on the rails, shall we? Goldy stops, then takes cover. "Okay. Okay, Get, I'm gonna get it's attention. I'm good at that. But you hang back a bit, get me if I get unlucky. Alright?" She shakes her head. "Alright. Alright, let's do this."
  145. [2016-12-21 15:04:18] * Get_Lost nodnods and waits where she is told to
  146. [2016-12-21 15:04:38] <Shoat> 3The lights around the far corner grow brighter.  
  147. [2016-12-21 15:06:36] <Shoat> 3The seraph comes around the corner.  It is a brilliant, fiery ball.  It's size is that which a pony might be if her body was compressed into a sphere.  It looks like Celestia's sun has been pulled from the sky and is stalking the halls of the Lunar Rising.  
  148. [2016-12-21 15:07:06] * Mitzi groans, but can't seem to muster the energy to get up
  149. [2016-12-21 15:07:23] <Shoat> 3The air becomes almost suffocating.  The metal walls, floor and ceiling glow hot as it passes.
  150. [2016-12-21 15:07:24] * Get_Lost whispers "it is... beautyfull..."
  151. [2016-12-21 15:08:51] * Shatara ulps. "Alright...here goes...something?"
  152. [2016-12-21 15:09:17] * Bookwright "It's been a pleasure, Tripwire. I think this is your cue."
  153. [2016-12-21 15:09:49] * Get_Lost adds "if it oly had a plot..."
  154. [2016-12-21 15:10:14] * Get_Lost takes a picture anyway
  155. [2016-12-21 15:10:28] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire flies out, attempting to avoid everypony and their shadows.
  156. [2016-12-21 15:10:40] * Golden_Dream feels her mane stand up on end in the back. She inhaled, then fired off a crossbow bolt right in center... Center mass seemed inaccurate, somehow. "HEY, OVERGROWN FLASHLIGHT! TH' ONLY PLACE YOU'RE ANY WELCOME IS AT A HOOFBALL STADIUM, AND WE'RE FAR AWAY FROM MANEHATTAN!"
  157. [2016-12-21 15:11:26] <Shoat> 3Golden_Dream's crossbow bolt incinerates.
  158. [2016-12-21 15:12:01] <Shoat> 3Major Tripwire orders, "Clear a path!"
  159. [2016-12-21 15:12:23] * Get_Lost echoes golden's words to help distraction "YEAH! OR IN MY BED IF I HAD ONE! GO HOME YOU... ehr... well, probably she technically IS at home... i mean, was a zebra, died somewhere around these parts, i guess? ah..." seps asid to clear a path
  160. [2016-12-21 15:12:30] <Get_Lost> *steps aside
  161. [2016-12-21 15:17:09] * Get_Lost "woah it's just her or here it is HOT?"
  162. [2016-12-21 15:17:51] * Bookwright is standing well back. "Both, I suspect!"
  163. [2016-12-21 15:18:21] * Golden_Dream chuckles gravely. Path's coming to you, pal. Her breath felt labored. She felt like it were high noon at Dodge Junction. "I HAVE A LETTER HERE FOR YOU. I CAN TELL IT'S FOR YOU, BECAUSE IT STARTS OFF 'DEAR FUCKBALL'. COME AND GET IT, FRIEND." She made way for Tripwire. Come on. Take bait.
  164. [2016-12-21 15:20:01] * Golden_Dream then started yelling out things she heard yelled at her and Mwana back at the outlaw town of Zebras.
  165. [2016-12-21 15:21:04] * Get_Lost stays out of the way and tries giving goldie some help in distracting the ball "YEAH! COME AND GET US IF YOU DARE!" then whispers "please don't dare "WHAT WAS THAT? ARE YOU AFRAID OF US!? AH! I KNEW!""
  166. [2016-12-21 15:22:18] <Shoat> 3The major flies past Get_Lost and Golden_Dream, careful not to cross their shadows.  He almost gets to the seraph when he is seized by complete panic, turns, and tries to flee.
  167. [2016-12-21 15:22:25] <Shoat> 3The seraph doesn't let him.
  168. [2016-12-21 15:24:17] <Shoat> 3The orb of fire -- burning without consuming -- darts forward with startling speed and engulfs the pony who is carrying the shadow -- the force that consumes without burning.  There is an eruption of black and grey light.
  169. [2016-12-21 15:24:46] <Shoat> 3CopyCat announces, "Major Tripwire is gone."
  170. [2016-12-21 15:25:12] * Noble_Heart shields her eyes with her wing. This was definitely not going the way she would have liked, but perhaps it was the only way it could have gone.
  171. [2016-12-21 15:25:41] <Shoat> 3The ball of burning fire breaks apart... and coalesces into the form of a glowing pony, taking the vague shape of Major Tripwire.
  172. [2016-12-21 15:26:39] * Get_Lost frowns "at least we gave him the hope of a chance of surviving?"
  173. [2016-12-21 15:26:42] <Shoat> 3The pegasus of burning light turns toward the distraction, and flies at Golden_Dream and Get_Lost.
  174. [2016-12-21 15:27:36] * Golden_Dream scrambles to her feet. FUCKFUCKFUCK THIS WAS A BAD PLAN.
  175. [2016-12-21 15:28:26] * Get_Lost is not fast enough to avoid anything but a sitting duck, so she stares at whatever is coming at her and offers "bullies are the worst?"
  176. [2016-12-21 15:30:42] <Shoat> 3There is nothing left of the real Major Tripwire.  But in combining with its shadow, the seraph has become a much lesser version of itself... albeit with the form and mirroring abilities of the pegasus E.L.R. officer.
