    END OF CHAPTER SEVEN

    Doctor Hargonstein screamed, demonic wings flailing as he plunged into the pit of fire.

    "The power of Christ compels you!" yelled Benedict, kicking the doctor square in the chest.

    "You're too late. This world is mine!" roared the demon, spreading his wings upon the gantry.

    Benedict staggered to stand, coughing up blood, clutching his broken ribs.

    Benedict saw the demon, and knew this was the end.

    Wait.

    There will be emus in the zone.



    Dance! Dance!

    Dance...dance... dance.

    The asylum guards sway, their nightsticks tapping out a rhythm on the sterile floors. Left right, backstep, shuffle. They fade. The patients rise, all in white, mad hair splayed at aukward angles like their limbs. They spin and cavort, suddenly synchronising, then falling apart again.

    Bodies writhe, the stage is sensuous. Another pass of guards. Slide tap slide. We rise and pirouette.

    Their hands click in time, stooping as they approach, light upon ivory faces to the edge of the stage. In the back, the fat monster swirls, tangled in prison coveralls, moaning his delirium. Flesh has muffled all his cries, but on twinkletoes he turns.

    Rags and prison-ropes, ball and chain, passed from hand to hand around him. Over and under they dance, till they are wrapped.

    Clink of chain, the patients roll. There is juggling of pills, fingers drum on plastic food trays. The guards change hats and we come together. Take your partner for the dance and fit the straight jackets with loved embrace. Fix the straps, clip the buttons, we are set.

    Pause. The stage frozen. All is still....

    The ringmistress, resplendent in leather. She poses, her bosom barely contained, blonde hair tumbling from beneath her top hat. Oh beautiful she is, lithe and ripe to touch.


    He's my baby...


    The Egyptian orchestra soars, strings and brass filling the auditorium. We stir i time, majestic sweeps and straigtjackets trail from arms and legs. But the circus has already taken the stage and throw their fire and cartwheels. The monkeys perch in the corners, black... so very black... and watch us all with sinister calm. We can only scream behind them. Pyramids where the players stand, the Nile swells its sodden load, and echoes in the desert. A music box sits with the monkeys, ting ting ting.


    Tap tap, slide tap slide slide tap tap....

    The psychiatrists and consultants walk in two lines, curving outwards, spinning, feet struck upon the stage, glasses slide the bridge of their noses. In time they resettle, clutch clipboards to their chest, turn and move with corporate walk, beep beep goes the phones, answer, bridge slide the nose.

    The lion undresses his golden fleece, his every move provocative, the silk and satin falling. The monkeys find you and stare, so black so very black. You'll see them soon in chambers and alcoves, nesting in the chests of elephants who no longer care.

    Pause. The stage frozen. No one moves.

    They twitch, but stop again.

    Wait...


    He's my baby...


    Alarm bells ring... a riot.. a riot.

    The orchestra stirs to make the ceiling sway. The crucifix rises, trunks of wood lashed with rope, rising, lifting, straightening between the dancing fools. It catches on the stage lights, wreathed in red and gold, the spotlights turn their heads.

    A crucifix a crucifix, a cross of wood and rope. Almost there now. It's lifting, lifting, lifting, oh god yes, it's lifting. Clunk, it straightens, standing proud. It's there. The guards and patients and doctors and elephants come to help, the mound ecstatic.

    Almost there... the monolith rises. Almost there, almost there.

    Alarms.

    Slam crash the patients and the guards beat against the walls, shaking the rooms of the asylum, rattling bars and hammering chairs. A riot a riot! We shake the walls. Bang, bang, the drums of madness and the circus tightrope. Bang bang, clash clash. The Eqyptians fold beneath the fire and the Ring Mistress smiles wide-mouthed in leather and lace.



    Benedict looked ahead, blinking as his hands and ankles took the weight of the nails. An icy breeze swept around the courtyard, mauling his half-naked body.

    Not a bad day to be crucified, when all was said and done.


    Wait...

    He's my baby...

    This is the fourth game in the Illusion Series that canonically takes place after the events of Illusion II: School Daze, Murder Tale IV: The Sovionok Camp Incident, and Murder Game XIV: Monokuma's Awakening. No knowledge of these passed events are required to participate.

    You come from a modern, technologically advanced version of earth. It’s a world full of computers, hovercrafts, spaceships, automated factories, robotic androids, and many other high-tech creations. You’ve lived on this planet for as long as you can remember…

    ...Or have you really?

    Little do you know that you've actually been taken from your home in the multiverse, pulled into a new reality, and have been given new memories. You remember nothing of your old life. This has been done all for the amusement of one person: your ship's captain.

    In this faux life, you’ve recently taken up a new job. It offers a free trip to anyone willing to leave earth on a retired warship for a safe, comfortable journey through space. The ship's destination is an empty, unknown planet. Aboard the ship is a team of archaeologists that intend to excavate its surface. The trip is to last nine months while the excavation is planned to take roughly three months. Until the work starts, you’re welcome to enjoy the ship's resort-like features. Everything is paid for; it’s like a free vacation.

    Whether you’ve been hired as an archaeologist or are simply a family member or friend of someone who has been hired, you find yourself on the beautiful ship Sagittarius III, watching a pre-recorded greeting from your ship's captain playing one of the many screens inside the ship's social center.

    [​IMG]

    "Captain Suzumiya speaking! Prepare yourselves for the most super cool journey any of your little insignificant lives have ever experienced! Hold onto your seats, my people, because we've got one... long... year... ahead of us!"

    [​IMG]

    In this game, players take characters from other settings and give them lives set in this futuristic world. All characters will be stripped of their original memories and given new memories that conform with this new life. This story will take place in segments divided into days. During the Mid-Day update of each story segment, the characters will be asked/forced to vote on who they believe is an Infector. These votes are purely IC! You may not choose to vote incorrectly in an OOC attempt to "let the good side win."

    Anyone who is voted out will be quarantined and their role revealed. If they are a Traveler they will be set free, but if they are a Savior, saved, Infector, or infected they will be kept in quarantine for observation during the remainder of the game.

    The game itself will be won if all of the Infectors are eliminated. It will be lost if all the Saviors are eliminated. If neither group is eliminated the winning side will be determined by which one has saved or infected more players.

    Here are more detailed descriptions of the roles in the game:

    Travelers

    This role is simply all of the average guests aboard the ship who have lost their memories.

    Saviors

    Your knights in shining armor, you could say. The Saviors will regain their original memories on Day 2 of the story and will try to keep their roles hidden. Whether or not you'd like your original memories back, the characters with this role will be tasked with showing everyone the truth. Each day, the Saviors will vote on one individual who will have their memories restored. If a Savior becomes infected or is voted out during the voting period, they will be eliminated and their role revealed. If all three Saviors are eliminated by the Infectors or are voted out, no more characters will regain their memories until the end of the game.

    The Saved

    If your character is saved, you will be informed via PM. Keeping your role hidden after being saved is recommended as you are likely to either be voted out or infected if the others find you suspicious. If a saved person is voted out or infected, they will no longer count toward the total of saved players.

    Infectors

    The Infectors are individuals plagued by a deadly virus. Starting on Day 2, the Infectors will choose another person on the ship to infect--causing them to be quarantined from everyone else and their role revealed. If one of the Infectors has their memories restored by a savior, they will stop infecting people and become eliminated. If one of the Infectors is voted out during a voting period, they will become eliminated and quarantined with the other infected players. If all three of the Infectors are saved or voted out during one of the voting periods, they will stop infecting people for the rest of the game.

    The Infected

    The Infected are individuals who have been infected by the Infectors. You will be informed that you have been infected via a PM. It is recommended that you keep your role hidden if you have been infected since you are likely to be voted out or saved if you are found suspicious by the others. If an infected person is voted out or saved, they will no longer count toward the total of infected players.

    4. No god-modding or meta-gaming.

    5. To Saviors and Infectors, all 'saves' or 'infections' will be done through a special group PM for each group and the characters who are saved or infected will be informed via PM.

    6. In this game, I will not allow anyone to play OCs or any characters from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya series (without special permission), as a majority of these characters will be used as NPCs during the game.

    Plot Summary:


    At the end of Monokuma's Awakening, Kyon realizes Yuki is missing when he returns home. He goes to Haruhi and explains this to her, hoping to awaken her powers so that she may use them to find Yuki. Her powers do indeed awaken, however, she instantly goes power crazed and re-writes the universe into her own personal playground. She creates a futuristic version of earth where she is the captain of space ship Saggitarious III. To fill this new world, she uses her powers to pull other people from different time periods and universes into her world. She seals their memories and gives them new ones, placing them aboard her ship to use as puppets she can play with to her amusement.

    Haruhi even keeps some people from her own universe (Kyon, Itsuki, Mikuru, Yuki, Asakura, etc), placing them in areas aboard her ship along with the others she kidnapped. The people from her own universe, like the others, had their own memories sealed and replaced with new ones. The only one who has their memories is Yuki, as Haruhi's powers have been shown not to effect her at certain times in Haruhi Suzumiya's canon series.

    Wanting to stop this situation before it gets out of hand, Yuki awakens the original memories of three people who will be this Illusion game's Saviors and will be allowed to choose one person's memories to restore per day. When Yuki awakens the memories of the saviors Haruhi can recognize this, but is unaware of who these saviors are. So she immediately works on a plan to have them all discovered and stopped. She turns three of the players from the group into "Infectors" who have the power to infect one person per day with a powerful virus.

    At this point, she announces to the citizens on the ship that there are three infected people aboard, and that she wishes for the citizens to vote for one person a day to find who they think is the infected one so that she may capture them and place them under quarantine. In truth, she hopes that the voters will mistakenly vote for one of the Saviors instead so that she may find them all.

    While this happens, day after day, the Saviors will restore the memories of more people. Yuki will contact these people telepathically and tell them of a plan she is concocting to stop the illusion. The ship has five power cores. She will post one job a day on the Request board that will result in their group collecting the cores. People naturally are required to do daily jobs, so taking on the job will not look suspicious. With all of the cores presented to her, Yuki will be able to make a device that can sap Haruhi's powers temporarily so that she can erase her memory of this event, fix the universe, and return everything to normal.

    On day six, Yuki will have all the cores in her possession and start working on a device to combine the power of them. She will send a signal with the device she has created that will restore the memories of those remaining on the ship (including the NPCs). She will then ask the Saviors/Saved to come to her aide and guard the area for her while she continues to work on the device so that Suzumiya doesn't find out and stop the process, even suggesting that someone work to distract her until the time is right.

    On day seven, Yuki's device will be complete, but by then Suzumiya will have discovered its creation and will send security guards and even shinjin to try and retrieve it.

    If the Saviors won the game, there will be a clear path for the players to stop Haruhi's guards and keep her from gaining control of the device.

    If the Infectors won the game, the ship will be so overrun by the infected that the players will not be able to get to the guards in time and they will find Yuki's device, destroying it.

    Savior ending: The Data Overmind will make an appearance, possessing Yuki and Haruhi. It will explain that it wanted Haruhi to use her powers all along as an experiment to see if they could manipulate the girl and use her for their own benefit. Pulling the strings all along, they had manipulated her thoughts so that she would create the Illusion game. They will state that their experiment was a success, and they intend to now take Haruhi and use her. However, they must destroy the device Yuki made--as it will prevent them from manipulating her powers further. Possessed Haruhi and Yuki will fight the players while trying to destroy / stop the device from activating. The players will win and the device will be activated, causing Yuki and Haruhi to regain their senses. Yuki will harness the power of the device and correct space-time, erasing Haruhi's memories of the event. She will then allow all of the others to return home to their proper worlds, before leaving to take Haruhi and her own group back to their world.

    Infector ending: The Data Overmind will make an appearance, possessing Yuki and Haruhi. It will explain that it wanted Haruhi to use her powers all along as an experiment to see if they could manipulate the girl and use her for their own benefit. Pulling the strings all along, they had manipulated her thoughts so that she would create the Illusion game. The device was already destroyed, leaving Yuki powerless to fix the situation. The Data Overmind will state that its experiment was a success and with nothing to stand in its way, they will take Yuki and Haruhi, leaving the remaining players and NPCs stranded on Sagittarius III in the illusion world. Everyone will have their memories back, but they won't have a way to return home for the time being.

    WIP


    Day 1: Prologue

    "Four Months"
    [​IMG]



    "War is upon us."

    [​IMG]

    "Here we are, in the midst of a battle for life and death. Our phasers are locked on our enemies and ready to fire whenever I give the command. We are surrounded by our brothers and sisters-in-arms, waiting for the right moment to strike down those opposing us. There is a chance all of us could die today, but if we die we will die as heros. If we win, we will all stand together as the protectors of New Earth. So, let's all stand together and kick some major ass out there!"

    "...is what I would say if we actually were at war right now."

    A loud laugh of from the Captain, blaring over the ship's intercom, would follow her speech. Having been aboard Sagittarius III for already four months, it was something everyone had grown accustomed to. The young woman liked to hear herself talk, and it was apparent by the fact that she gave a new speech about anything and everything nearly every single day. In fact, the crew of travelers was so used to these speeches that it was probably easy just to tune them out all together. But whether anyone listened to the booming voice of Captain Haruhi Suzumiya or not, she still continued to speak.

    "But we aren't at war, are we? This ship isn't even a warship anymore. It's pretty disappointing, I know, but don't feel bad! We've been aboard Sagittarius III for one-hundred and twenty one days now and we're not finished yet, folks! In only five months from now, we'll be exploring a vast new world full of the unknown! Excavating for aliens--"

    [​IMG]

    A cough could be heard coming from behind Suzumiya. One of her trusted crew members, Koizumi, could be heard speaking afterwards. "Minerals, Miss Suzumiya, minerals."

    "Ugh, right. We'll be excavating for minerals. But maybe if we're lucky we'll run into some aliens too! Now, wouldn't that be cool?"

    "Anyhow, this is just a quick announcement to greet all of you for the day, and to remind everyone that we could use a few volunteers to work around here every now and again. I know this trip is kind of like a vacation until we arrive to the planet we're supposed to explore, but that doesn't mean we all shouldn't do our part to help out every now and again, right? So if any of you want to volunteer, be sure to visit the ship's Social Center and check out the requests board."

    "SO SOME OF YOU BETTER GET YOUR LAZY ASSES TO WORK OR YOU'LL ALL BE PUNISHED, DAMN YOUUUU!"

    ...

    "That is all. Have a good day. Captain Suzumiya, signing off."

    After giving her announcement, Haruhi Suzumiya turned around to face those who were with her in the Command Center, flicking a lock of brown hair over her shoulder before she spoke.

    [​IMG]

    "And how was I today?"

    While everyone else in the room was quiet, Koizumi slowly started to clap for her. "Inspirational as always."

    Even though he was the only one in the room clapping, Haruhi bowed as if she were suddenly filled with the confidence brought upon by a stadium filled with thousands of people cheering for her.

    "Yes, yes, I know. My speeches are just so motivating I bet everyone in the entire ship will be begging to do volunteer work now!" she exclaimed, a twinkle in her eyes. "But for the time being, let's all get back to work on our end!" she added.

    ---

    After the Captain's announcement had ended, the travelers aboard the ship were free to move around and do what they pleased. If anyone was interested in volunteer work, they could check out the Social Center of the ship. As for anyone else, all the travelers had maps of the ship they could refer to if they wanted to go somewhere else. While some had likely gotten used to the layout of the ship over the past four months, it was still large and tedious to navigate. So most travelers carried their maps with them at all times.

    Day 1 Activities


    Social Center: Anyone who goes to check out the Volunteer jobs will find that there are two jobs available. The first job will be titled: Storage Assistance and the second job will be titled Nurse's Station Assistance.

    Storage Assistance: Our inventory managers are looking for help with sorting some of the food and medicine kept aboard the ship. Any help would be appreciated!

    Nurse's Station Assistance: Presently, our Nurse's Station is understaffed. Our nurse could use an assistant to help her out with basic tasks. No medical knowledge needed!

    Command Station: Haruhi and Itsuki will be there and GMed by me. The only activity planned is that players can interact with them for entertainment. John Smith (Kyon) can start off here as well.

    Nurse's Station: Anyone who goes to the Nurse's Station (whether they have filled the job request or not) will be asked to help a very upset Nurse Mikuru who is trying to calm down John Smith's sister who is crying due to a sprained ankle she received from running down the halls / tripping. (Maybe they have to find John so he can help calm her down?) Mikuru will be distraught as well, and when the others ask her about it, she will explain that its because the theater is showing a movie she made with a few of the other crew members and was not proud of. She insisted Haruhi not show it, but the Captain did anyhow.

    Storage: Taniguchi and Kunikida will be there, working to sort supplies. They will ask anyone who comes in to help them sort and interact with them. Eventually a power lift crane will malfunction, causing some boxes to topple down onto Yuki who will be standing around not doing much. They will then ask anyone helping them to escort Nagato to the Nurse's Station.

    Theater: The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina will be playing here. Link: YouTube watch?v=i35rp63q4k4 Shamisen will be in there and chat with any players who visit with him. It will be normal that cats can talk in this world, so they won't be startled. However, cats are not allowed aboard the ship, so he will ask that nobody tell the Captain he is aboard.


    Day 1: Mid-Day Update

    "Trapped"



    As the day moved along, a lot of the activities and events that took place began to quiet down. In fact, the noise level on the ship seemed to drop so low that it was unnatural. Either it was just a coincidence, or it was a calm before an inevitable storm.

    Within the Command Center, a very bored, restless Haruhi Suzumiya paced back and forth, a frustrated scowl on her face. She looked like a volcano, ready to blow at any second. Those around her gave the young woman plenty of space, knowing it was dangerous to get in her way while she was like this.

    [​IMG]

    "Man, I'm so bored," the brunette, grumbled. "Four months into this trip and on calm days like this I really just don't know what to do with myself. I'm tired of sitting around writing up captain's logs and reports. I wish something interesting would happen..."

    Almost as if on cue with the Captain's words, a low rumbling could be heard throughout the ship. Suzumiya blinked and glanced to her crew, suddenly looking alarmed. "What was... that?"

    Sitting at one of the control panels of they ship, Koizumi would rapidly type on the keyboard, bringing up a screen that showed a live feed of outer space. "Miss Suzumiya, this is a picture of what is happening outside of Sagittarius III right now."

    Haruhi rushed over to look at the screen, her eyes widening. "It can't be! That's--"

    [​IMG]

    "--an asteroid field!"

    "Right, and it's not just any asteroid field either. Oddly enough, it seemed to appear out of nowhere. Our ship's sensors didn't even detect it until now. It's a large cluster, and the rocks are too large for us to destroy with our phasers. We can attempt to carefully navigate through it, but this is still a very dangerous situation. We only just brushed past one and it rocked the entire ship. I don't want to think of what could happen if we actually hit one. We'll have to tell our crew to take cover. The Social Center is their best bet. It's the safest location in the ship."

    The Captain nodded. "Right, I'll make an announcement."

    No matter where anyone was on the ship, they would all hear an announcement from Captain Suzumiya over the ship's loudspeaker.

    "Attention everyone, this is not a drill. We have just entered a dangerous asteroid field. For your own safety, it is recommended that everyone calmly and quietly head for the Social Center of the ship immediately. I repeat, this is not a drill. Everyone on board, please head for the Social Center of the shi--"

    A loud rumble would cut off the Captain, and everyone would feel the ship violently quake under their feet. Afterwards, all the doors of the ship would lock, causing everyone to be trapped in whatever room they happened to be inside of at the time. The travelers would then hear a loud alarm begin to sound.

    "Dammit, what just happened?!" the Captain roared, shooting a look to those around her in the Command Center.

    "All of the doors... they're locked," Koizumi stated. "Its an old emergency feature set in place during the ship's war days. I-I'm not really sure how to shut it off."

    Haruhi slammed a fist down against a control panel, her wild eyes emanating with rage. "Well, figure it out, you idiots! The crew is trapped and they need to get to the Social Center!"

    The travelers would suddenly feel the ship rumble again. It appeared as if the only options they had at the moment were to try and break through the doors or wait for them to be opened. Once they escaped, however, everyone would need to head to the Social Center where it was safe.

    For a very short time, GM rubble falling and earthquakes happening throughout the ship. Some of the rubble can even topple onto some of the travelers. If the travelers figure out creative ways to escape the rooms they are locked in, allow them to do so. After this occurs, this post will be made:



    [​IMG]

    Although the asteroids continued to batter and damage the ship, the Captain and those in the Command Center worked to safely steer the ship out of the asteroid field. Eventually, the doors that still remained locked would open, and all of the travelers would be able to make their way for the Social Center. By the time everyone had arrived, the ship was safely out of harm's way and the Captain would make another announcement.

    "We have safely exited the asteroid field. This is just an announcement to let everyone know that minimal damage has been done to the outside of the ship and it appears some travelers have only received minor injuries. If you've been injured, please make your way for the Nurse's Station immediately. A full report of this incident will be given tomorrow during the morning announcements. Thanks for your cooperation."

    Once the announcement had ended, the crew was free to move about the ship again.

    Day 2

    "Rise of the Infected"



    The following day started off relatively ordinary, that is, as ordinary as a trip under Captain Suzumiya could be. Morning announcements came and went in a flash, greater detailing the events of yesterday, describing a couple volunteer jobs the crew needed assistance with, and wishing everyone a safe, productive day. Once announcements had ended, the travelers went about their usual days. At least, most of them did.

    For three individuals in particular, life aboard Sagittarius III was about to drastically change. The memories of lives they had thought to be their own would suddenly seem like dreams as different dormant memories would awaken inside them. They would immediately realize that these awakened memories were their true memories, and the ones of their current lives aboard Sagittarius III were actually fake. These individuals wouldn't know how or why this had happened to them at first, but would quickly find an explanation presented to them.

    In the form of a telepathic voice and image inside their heads, only the three individuals who had their memories restored would see the face of who had done this to them.

    [​IMG]

    "My name is Yuki Nagato. If you can hear this message it means you have been awakened and chosen to learn the truth. The explanation behind this occurrence is as follows: Haruhi Suzumiya is a human attending high school from the 20th Century of Earth whom I was assigned to observe. Haruhi Suzumiya has a dormant potential to harness and generate data at will. Short explanation: she contains "god-like" abilities."

    "It was the intention of my organization that I observe Suzumiya and see to it that the abilities she has were not to be discovered by her. However, circumstances changed. She discovered her hidden potential and became mentally unhinged by the overwhelming amount of power she possessed. With this power, she wished into existence this pocket universe containing New Earth and Sagittarius III. She then began to pull various individuals from all across space-time out of their own worlds and into this pocket universe. The memories of these individuals were sealed away and they were given new memories. In short, Suzumiya created this space for her own amusement."

    "I, however, intend to correct these circumstances. The three of you will be my "Saviors." Your task will be to choose one individual from Sagittarius III each day who will have their memories restored. In my current state, I don't have the power to restore everyone at once, and even if this were viable it would not be possible without alerting Suzumiya. So I have given my power to restore memories to the three of you. The corrections need to be done without her being made aware, as she could stop this plan should she discover it. Keeping this information from Suzumiya is very important. It is also imperative that you do not tell anyone your memories have been restored. It's my suggestion you continue to go on as you have before, pretending nothing has happened."

    "While the three of you work to save others, there is one other important plan of correction which must be carried out. Aboard the ship, there are five power cores containing a massive amount of energy to manipulate and generate data. Suzumiya created them, unconsciously placing some of her power into each one. Each day, I will submit a volunteer job request in the Social Center that will result in a power core being located. While all five could be located in a day, it would be impossible to collect them without alerting Suzumiya. So the gathering of these cores must be spread out. After a core is located, please have it delivered to the area specified in the job request and I will collect them later. Be discrete so you are not found suspicious by Suzumiya or any of the others."

    "Once the five cores are gathered, I will manipulate the data contained in them and create a device. This device will have the power to render Suzumiya unconscious, erase her memories of her abilities along with event, and send her back to her home where she belongs. After this is process is complete, I will use the remaining power in the device to send everyone aboard Sagittarius III back to their homes throughout the multiverse."

    "If you have questions regarding the task I have given to you, it is my suggestion you contact me in private. Do not forget to vote on someone who you will have saved today. Once you have mentally decided, the power to restore their memories will automatically be activated. That is all."

    The telepathic message directed toward the Saviors was not the only unusual circumstance to occur for the day. In the Command Center, Haruhi Suzumiya would freeze in place realizing that something had happened. She couldn't sense exactly what had happened or why, but she knew something was different. Someone had done something to a few members of her crew and had changed things. Something told Suzumiya that this wasn't good.

    No, no, no! Someone tampered with the minds of my travelers! I don't know how, but I can sense it. But this is my ship! Things have to go my way! I won't allow this to happen! I'll stop it if its the last thing I do!

    Throwing a small tantrum without explaining why, Suzumiya knocked over a computer screen onto the floor and began to repeatedly step on it with her foot. If anyone in the room bothered to ask what her issue was, the Captain would ignore them and continue throwing her fit. She only listened to the others when the informed her of another issue.

    Meanwhile, subconsciously, Haruhi Suzumiya had activated her power again. The Captain's strong desire to prevent the Savors from changing things caused her to create an enemy for the Saviors to face. Much like the Saviors had been awakened, three individuals aboard the ship would suddenly become aware of new abilities and what they had to do with said abilities.

    They were now Infectors, plagued by a dormant virus within them. They suddenly knew that each day they will have to infect one person aboard the ship with an intent to try and subdue the Saviors. Without even realizing she had done it, Haruhi had granted her own wish to try and stop the individuals who were going to manipulate the memories of her other crew members. Miraculously, her power even concocted a fake explanation to tell the others about this new virus aboard the ship.

    "Miss Suzumiya, I'm sorry to interrupt, but we have another small problem," Koizumi would say to Haruhi after a moment had passed. "After running our daily diagnostics of the ship, it appears as if some individuals have caused a small leak of contaminated material in the Nurse's Station to be spread around the ship. A few people could be infected. We should have everyone on the ship examined in the Nurse's Station to make sure this isn't the case."

    Haruhi's eyes widened in alarm. "What!? How is that-- Who is responsible for doing this?"

    Koizumi frowned. "Our screens aren't giving us much information. I'm not certain if they're glitching, but they're repeatedly blinking one word over and over..."

    Saviors_


    Glaring at the screen, Haruhi repeated the word. "Saviors, huh? Maybe that's who is responsible for doing this! I bet they're terrorists! I'll make an announcement on this right away. I have a plan!"

    A message would then blare over the loudspeaker.

    [​IMG]

    "This is Captain Suzumiya speaking. I have an emergency announcement to make. A group of individuals known as the Saviors has been suspected of starting trouble aboard this this ship. They are suspected of having spread contaminated material containing a virus that may have been contracted by a few people already. With the cooperation of all the travelers, I intend to locate either these Saviors or infected people. From this point forward, each day I will leave it up to all of you to vote for someone to be examined and quarantined by the Nurse's Station so we can find these no good, dirty rotten trouble makers and punish them! Ha ha ha ha!"

    "Anyhow, try to vote for someone you think is suspicious. If you can't make up your mind, just vote for someone random! All of you will probably get checked eventually, so it doesn't matter! Just head on over to the Social Center and vote on one of the computers there so we can get this problem solved! That's all I have to say for the day. This is Captain Suzumiya signing off."

    Vague with her information, Haruhi would probably leave the travelers with more questions than answers. Was this virus deadly? Who were these Saviors? Why couldn't they just have everyone on board the ship be checked out all at once rather than only checking one person a day?

    These were all questions individuals in the Command Station would ask Haruhi, only to be given a single answer for all of them. "SHUT UP! I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING!"

    But did she really?

    Only time would tell.

  3. Bless...Now how did that go?

    Oh it was going to be one of those days. The floor was cold but the cot was gone and the muzzle straps were already bruising where they'd been pressed against his cheek for god only knew how long. There were no mirrors in this hell and no clocks and you never realize how disconcerting that is until you experience it yourself.

    Bless your heart-

    By the muffled cacophony of screaming, laughter and praying shaking the walls it sounded like Benny had managed to convince the Good Doctor (or maybe some other poor sap- the Good Doctor had seemed rather disappointed with Benny's last go of masochism) to crucify him again.

    Bless your heart but...

    Let's see, it usually took a good five minutes to find something appropriate to fix him to, and between five to twelve hours for someone to get sick of looking at him hanging around and another oh... hour to con someone else into taking him down. Which told Eddie fuckall about what time it was.

    Bless your heart but shut your mouth-

    ShutUpShutUpShutUp.

    The little red centipede (a thousand legs like post it notes detailing shit he didn't feel like remembering today) that isn't so small anymore leaves fire crawling across your skin where it touches you. Normally Eddie is all for that but the damn thing won't shut up this morning (afternoon/evening/deadofnight) and he's not up to a day of bad puns and Alice In Wonderland references. He's stiff and he's cold and the needles in his stomach are supposed to make the hunger go away but goddammit he needs a cigarette...

    Bless your heart but shut your mouth some things must not...

    To hell with the Good Doctor (right along with the rest of us yeah?) and his cold hands and hot needles and the attitude may be sexy as hell but more than any kind of bedside manor Eddie wants his fags back. He paid for them, twice over now, and if Hargonstein doesn't want him eating anyone else he'll damn well give back my pacifier.

    Bless your heart but shut your mouth some things must not be said out loud.

    His bones had broken in the night, in the dark and the cold and now his muscles screamed breaking them back into place as he rose.

    "I'd rather not think about that right now."

    And little loleta, left all alone-

    "Go be someone else's psychosis for a while yeah?"

    A gift! A gift I was- A love letter from that pretty pretty russian girl...

    "Who wasn't russian, by the way, but go ahead." Sometimes he wondered what ever happened to her. And then, he forgot. Maybe Eddie could endure a day of Vogon poetry. If he could find a smoke. He stretched, his shoulder popping back into place and stared the lock on his cell into sobbing hysterics. "'S'right. Have it all out kiddo." He tossed it over his shoulder where it shattered against the wall. "The world is listening."

    Bene has the goods.

    "I doubt it. How longs he been up?"

    Time is such a fickle thing...

    "Nevermind."

    The halls of Hargonstein are not for the faint of heart. Fortunately Eddie's heart had fainted years ago ("...and every time I woke up pregnant!" Thanks grandma I really needed to hear that story...), shrivaled up and eaten itself in narsissistic facination. Now there was just hunger.

    Was the cafeteria left or bacon? A strangled scream pulled Eddie right. Maybe Old Rasputin had been generous to ninja him up some lunch?
     
  4. Wake up Daniel… Daniel…

    And he is roused from sleep by the sound of his wife’s voice. But there was no love here, in this place. There was no breakfast, carefully prepared this morning. There were no eggs; there was no toast, no coffee, black and strong, just how he liked it... No, this was a much darker, scarier place.

    Daniel…

    He stood up, off of his thin cot, and stretched before walking out of his small white-washed room, stepping carefully over a red stain by the door along the way. Had that always been there? His memory wasn’t what it used to be, to say the least, and the stain looked as though it had faded considerably. He imagined it had been there for some time.

    Daniel…

    He was outside of his room now, in the dark hallway.

    Daniel…

    He started walking, although he couldn’t rightfully remember his destination, or where even this corroded corridor led.

    Daniel, what are you doing?!

    He tried counting the tiles on the floor of this place, but he was walking too quickly and his eye-sight was too poor... It was too dark, here.

    Daniel, no!

    He was very hungry, he realized suddenly. The cafeteria, that’s where he was headed! Now in which direction was that again?! Ah, he would kill for a proper breakfast!

    DANIEL, STOP!

    He stopped. No. There would be no proper breakfast in this place. There were no eggs, there was no toast, no coffee, black and strong... There was no love here.
     
  5. From the corner of the cafeteria she crawled out, her patient's gown stained and ragged, her dark hair hung across her face. She moved unsteadily, the limbs buckling as they tried to bend against the joint. But in time she stood upright, jerking, convulsing.

    Her head rolled back and she screamed, a visceral sound that scraped her insides and split the corners of her mouth. It echoed around the sterile white walls and rattled the bolted chairs and tables.

    Then, like poreclain, she fell apart. Her skin shattered like glass, broken into a cloud of dust and vapourous chemicals, which billowed around the room. The dust swirled and formed numerous smaller shapes, while the vapour condensed into tumbling streams of coloured liquid.

    On each of the cafeteria tables, little stacks of pills fell into place, while medicine pooled in plastic shot glasses.

    The cafeteria was set, and the first patients began to enter.

    "Leave her alone, man."

    "Stay out of this!"

    "You got her, okay. You got her. She's sorry."

    "Oh no. She ain't learned nothing yet. But I'm gonna teach her. I'm gonna teach her real good."

    Benedict glanced up as the rat began the vicious rape, violating the pigeon on the cross-plank of the crucifix. Another rat looked on nervously and shuffled to the end of its perch, while the poor bird simply writhed, broken wings beating as it tried to escape.

    Blood dripped down onto Benedict's face, but he tried to ignore it. On the opposite side of the courtyard, he could just make out the roof of the Manson Wing, where he kept his notes. With tiny flicks of his eyebrows, Benedict wrote another line of text in the small leatherbound book lodged in the gutter-pipe. The book wobbled, twitching as its pages were inked from the inside. And then it settled again, standing up on its end and filing itself next to another three identical journals wedged between the rooftiles.

    Doctor Hargonstein was up to something... and Benedict was slowly figuring it out.

    Just a few more crucifixions... and he would be onto something.


    "Okay, that's enough! Leave her alone!"

    "You back the fuck off!"

    More blood trickled over Benedict's face as the two rats tore at each other, trampling the corpse of the pigeon.
     
  6. Eddie ran into-well, more stumbled across Daniel on the way to the cafe. The poor man looked as lost as Eddie tended to feel around here. There was something going on- like that noise you can't quite pin down as the fridge, and you're left hoping it's just your imagination playing tricks...

    "Hey, buddy, that's the wrong way. Foods the other direction-" He amended his statement, the smell of drying blood twisting his gut in a way he really wished made him uncomfortable, but he was too hungry to care- more than a little... "People food is that way. Comon' I'll let you buy me a coffee, then we can figure out who the hell's been playing with your pills while I was out, yeah?"
     

  7. Eryn smoothed her prison clothing, a simple dress too difficult for her slender fingers to rip material from. With a swish of her hair, she smiled winsomely at the guard as she left her little cell. Her bright eyes wandered the hall as she walked through it, but every day it was the same. A check list of sorts, and her mind whirred through it like a well-tuned machine, just one job in mind.

    Blades, no blades, no one ever gets blades here, but especially not me. The spoons are made of that material, and always spoons, so they can't be sharpened. And besides, they make you give them back.

    No fire, of course, the only fire there was happened when an arsonist at heart managed to find wood outside, what a delightful little cub scout he must have been, but somewhere he learned how to start a fire that way. She didn't know. Besides, there wasn't any wood.

    No rope, no cloth, nothing for strangulation. Her clothes were special, thick, and somehow she never could manage to get a single string from it. She was curious what it was made from, but none of the guards would answer her questions anymore.

    Deciding today was another hopeless, painless day, Eryn continued towards the cafeteria. Maybe she could try biting.

    With this buoying thought, Eryn breezed into the cafeteria, smiling at the usual prisoners. All old friends. Friends, acquaintinces. Was there a difference to her?
     
  8. Phoenix

    Phoenix let out a light laugh before saying "when as many people want you dead as they do me, an Oracle becomes necessary." When they were outside of his palace, he looks at Isir and smirked "take him to the baths and then escort him to the prisons." He walked ahead of all of them and kept to himself, heading back to his office, walking past his maid with an eye patch over her left eye.
     
  9. Jenna's cell was unlocked but she didnt not move. She couldnt move. Her arms were still gripping the rails of her the bed she was rolled in on. Its oversized metal wheels with rubber grippings to slience them moaned as she tried to turn her head. She could feel only the cold as her eyes blinked incesently, matching the buzzing light above her.

    The hight ceiling made it impossible for anyone to reach them, and if the lights were almost burnt out who cared. The smell of food made her stomach lurch as she dry heaved but nothing came up. Only gagging and coughing erupted from her, making her stomach and back hurt.

    That pain woke up the rest of her that was strapped down. Feeling the rage from the night before rise up inside her, a scream exploded from her tiny frame and filled the halls and rattled the ultra thick cross-hatched windows of the cafeteria. Bucking and convusling Jenna's body bucked violently.

    'Just stop it, just stop it, it will go away, they wont know, they wont see, and they wont know, just stop it, dont make them come, dont make them come, please.. stop stop..'

    Rough hands gripped her legs and evil smirks filled her only line of sight, and that was straight up.

    "Ello, love, miss me ehh" Jenna couldnt stop blinking as a cold hand started to undo the straps.

    "No you scream again and you wont like me very much you hear" shaking and shaking the room spun as she was yanked into a seated position.

    'Dont move, dont move he will see me, dont let him see me you bitch, you fucking whore, he touches me again I'll kill you myself you understand me, you filthy little whore, I hate you, I hate you, I hate you'

    "there now, go eat and dont scream again"

    His eyes, thoses eyes, it was him, it was him, bite him, get him, do it, do it now, you worthless hunk of flesh, you stupid little brat, your father was right no wonder they raped you, your nothing, nothing but a hole to have shit rammed into over and over'

    Jenna started to dry heave and fell to the floor, gagging again hard on pure air. She had nothing left inside her to puke. Stains all around the cell, filled the air with what was her dinner, some of the many pills and shots they filled her with. Looking down at her gown she could see remants of the side effects as they liked to call them.

    "Ah, your worthless"

    'See he was right, you are nothing but a pile of shit, I hate you, I hate you, its all your fault, you little fuck' Dont, dont, just dont please. ' oh but i will, I will over and over'

    Panting and shaking the room spun on her as she moved under the bed and clung to its legs.

    'its not over you coward, its only just begun'

    The Galactic Garrison

    The Galactic Garrison is an alliance of four planets, its symbol incorporating the emblems of its founders. The sphere of Aoqua, the Three Paths of Wisdom of the Leonids, the colors of Lady Liberty for Earth and the four, royal stars of the Court of Aelfheim. Acting as the banner for galactic politics and backed by all four, they managed to create a force able to fight the Galra Empire and its allies to a standstill. Enough at least to ensure that Galactic Garrison space is a Galra-free zone, though the closer you get to the outer rim and the War Zone, the more tenuous that grip holds.

    They are the police, military and security of the worlds allied and under the protection of the Galactic Garrison and while theoretically, all voices are heard? It is Earth, Aoqua, Rakṣā of the Leonids and the Court of Aelfheim who hold the most practical power, bearing the majority of the Galactic Garrison Fleet.

    Earth Troops- The Guardsmen


    [​IMG]

    Serving as both a naval and ground force coalition, the forces of Earth are among the biggest mixed bag in the known universe insofar as the army is concerned. Collectively known as the Guardsmen, the general idea is rather then hold everyone to a particular standard, the Guardsmen are split into various legions, each with a specialty and tradition, and its a canny commander who will use each of them to the fullest.

    World First: The standard Earth legion. New recruits are shipped to Mars, where they endure the basic training and are given aptitude tests for which branch and legion they best qualify for. World First is also notable for the majority of quality officers it churns out, for those who stick with them.

    Statesman Shield: A mostly metahuman legion, consisting of those who either washed out of Watchtower and Overwatch, or decided they wished to use their powers in a different way. Highly disciplined and possessing a wide variety of powers, their numbers are relatively smaller then most, but they make up for it in sheer firepower and flexibility in the field.

  14. The cafeteria was a stranger place.

    Daniel...

    People sat, scattered across the room, sitting at tables.

    Daniel, is that you?

    Some of them muttered to others, or just to themselves, while others sat quietly, alone, and stared.

    Daniel, what are you doing?

    Daniel got his tray, slowly, dumbly, in a stupor, and sat down at a table. Was his companion with him anymore? Daniel shrugged. That was nothing more to a blur to him regardless. That's what everything was to him lately, at best. Daniel looked down at his tray. There was meat to eat today, how wonderful! Daniel almost smiled! He took the red, slimy substance in his hand and took a mighty bite (oh how hard it was to tear a proper piece, and, alas, he had no utensils)!

    Daniel, no!

    Blood seeped and dripped back unto his tray. The meat here was different. Did they cook it? It left a bad taste in his mouth. A blur put some medicine and a glass of water down next to the plate, and Daniel took both eagerly. He felt better, and ventured a look around the cafeteria. He made eye contact with two separate women at two separate tables, not far away. He looked to his left. Was that the man who had bumped into him earlier, sitting near him? So he was still here then? Daniels lips quivered, and he opened his mouth. "So, I am Daniel then, right? Who might you be?!"

    He would try to converse with this blur.
     
  15. Jenna's ice cold fingers locked in a bloodly curl slowly opened enough to grip the damp spoon resting near the dimsal plate of yellow and gray. Had this been someone's meal? Where had they gone? Were they sick? Would she get sick? What did they have?

    'They were dying in this very chair you flatchested whore. They left stains of being raped right under your ass.'

    Shaking the voice away with a jingling nod, a sudden slap blast her left side knocking her head foreward and to the side. Her lip quivering as her own hand slowly sinks back into place next to her still throbbing from the impact.

    'Do that again you little fuck and Ill slap you someplace else. That little warm place between your legs.'

    "Dont just stop it please, stop" Her voice floats away trappled on by all the movement in the room. All the random noise of voices mixed with laughter and screams.

    'Hold still. Your being watched. Eat. Eat now you fuck!'

    A muted spoon lifts to her chapped lips. Opening her mouth to the greasy yellow and white glob a lurch begins from deep within her stomach. To many hours between meals and now this immpossible internal abuse. Tears sting her eyes as the spoon touches her lips and into her body the wet, cold, eggs slide. Gagging and choking a hand clamps over her mouth as she is forced to chew. Nearly chewing on her own lip a stiffled scream shrinks back down her throat.

    Washing with spoon full after sloopy spoon full a hand jams food into her mouth with savage mercy. Choking and spitting up a few lost bits Jeena pants as her left hand pats her on the cheek.

    The spoon drops to the floor with a tiny chink. Shaking in her chair the room slips in and out of motion as a strange feeling starts to grow inside her. A distant warmth and creeps into every inch of her. Fighting off a sudden chill Jenna looks up.

    'Dont make eye contact with him you bitch. Dont look at anyone, dont you dare. I feed you isnt that enough?'

    Temping the voice her eyes fix on a man. He looks like a man or could he be just some guy? Why would that slight difference matter in a place like this? Could he be a man and still remain a guy? Would one slaughter the other? Tilting her head to one side thoughts scrambled for placement and meaning in her mind. Her eyes glassed over as the debate raged on and on. Ignoring the danger, mocking the shadow that grew at her side Jenna stared on.

    SLAP!!!

    Knocked to the floor with a violent slam Jenna's body hit the floor. Cutting her lip as her teeth and lips curled trying to protect themselves. Jamming her teeth into the back of her lip blood gushed forth.

    "GET HER JACKET NOW GOD DAMN'IT BEFORE SHE KILLS HERSELF. WHO THE HELL LET HER OUT! YOU FUCKING BASTARDS THIS WHOLE PLACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL" An orderly shouted and waived his hands and arms around. Yelling at anyone and anything near him. Barking orders as other shattered minds fled to other parts of the room.

    Her eyes never left his face as the blow came with a unforgiving jolt. 'I told you not to look at him.'

    "He was worth it. He was worth it." The insults and debate kept her company as she was put into the jacket and hauled out.
     
  16. D-Daniel... what have you done!?

    Daniel didn't like this. He watched as the women, one of the women he had noticed earlier, was beaten down by an orderly, encased in an asylum jacket and dragged off. It all seemed to happen in a moment, here in this place where every minute seemed to last a lifetime, but what could Daniel do about it?

    Daniel, don't!

    His memory was poor, but he remembered enough about his past in this place to know that defying authority was not a good idea. People disappeared. Usually they didn't come back, but if they did it was in a state far worse than before, and they never lasted very long. So Daniel sat, and ate, and brooded. There were moments were medication was his worst enemy, and Daniel had significant enemies in this place. The medication here could send him into either euphoria or ruin, depending on what the orderlies fancied on giving him at the time. The euphoria was caused by losing touch with the bleak reality of his situation, and the ruin was the clarity of mind he was now experiencing. Now Daniel wished exceedingly that he could stop taking his medication, and surrender himself to whatever disease his mind was plagued with. He imagined that whatever disorder had landed him in this hell (he couldn't remember what it had been, now) had multiplied and grown into other disorders during his stay.

    Haha, Daniel!

    It was ironic, he thought, that he was only becoming more insane in a place that was supposed to cure him. Daniel looked down at his tray (eating might keep his mind busy), but it wasn't on the table anymore. It lay, upside down, on the floor a few strides away. Had he thrown it there in his despair? Had anyone seen him? Was the blur still standing beside him, keeping him company?
     
  17. Kicking and scream from the depths of her fractured mind Jeena is thrown into a padded cell and the door slammed shut. A tangled mess of matted hair and vacant eyes she lays on her side as her mind beats even more life out of her. Raking her of any and all thought. Her demons demand her soul as she shakes and jolts. Following not in the path of the light her thoughts slip away into the self distructive nature that landed her, here in the first place.

    Blinking in darkness she can feel it consume her. Laughing as its cold embrace sucks the life from even the marrow that clings to her withering frame.
