Shining Fomortiis: "LAB!!!"
I had the impulse to confront the platoon leader directly, since he likes running his mouth about duty and honor so much and so I...
Ripped the mech's camera from its mount, ripped both of its arms off and tore the metal untill the core was exposed, and what I found wasnt a grown man, but an adolescent boy, looking no older than 15....
Young Male Officer: "N-NO WAIT, DONT KILL ME!! IM ONLY DOING WHAT IM TOLD, I DONT WANNA--"
Naughtaisle: "Whats your name?"
Officer Graf: "Graf. Ryan Graf, S.I.R.E.N. assault initiative platoon zero three."
Too many questions right now. I dove straight to the ground dragging the broken suit with me with him in it, told him to stay put and proceeded to dispatch the remaining fleet members, ripping and tearing metal limbs off of joints and out of the sky. Back to it, I junctioned back to Lost, and went to talk to Ryan before he could get further away.
Naughtaisle: "Ryan, follow my orders and you wont get hurt."
Ryan: "But That's aiding and abedding!!"
Naughtaisle: "Trust me, after what you learn today you wont care afterwards. Grant me access to the lab."
Ryan: "I havent security clearance to go that far."
Naughtaisle: "Fine then. We'll be taking the back door."
I junctioned Blitz, picked Ryan up by his flightsuit and proceeded back to the main hall. I was met with another army of mechanical suits. I pushed Ryan out and pressed my cannon firmly to his throat. Every seemed to halt. Everyone except the director.
S.H.D.:"I'm not giving into your demands traitor! Surrender both your hostage AND your weapons!"
Naughtaisle: "This isn't a standoff, I'm buying time. In fact, good luck catching up to me, by time you get this message, I will have already made my way into your lab and leaving. Good luck with the whole saving the planet deal, if you hadnt been fumbling around with it in the first place, there would be nothing to save."
Ryan stared on as I showed him the view from my Nanolink, as the holo spell played its part , while I drilled underground deeper to the lab.
Ryan: "... They really believe we're still up there. This is called magicka?"
Ryan: "What kind was that?"
Naughtaisle: "Space type."
Ryan: "They had all kinds of exhibitions in the academy back when I attended. I wanted to be a fire mage, but then I found out they have to sit in towers all day. I see S.I.R.E.N. tags on your armor and clothes, but Ive never heard of you. Where are you from?"
Naughtaisle: "You're gonna get all loopy when I tell you, but inter dimensional travel is real. I come from an alternate reality where the S.I.R.E.N. of my spacestream gets a hold of alien technologies, and do much worse then in that spacestream. You guys have influences from comic books and movies, we never had any of that stuff, because it was actually happening in real life."
Ryan: " So what happened, and how did you end up in this one?"
Naughtaisle: "Lets just say anyone that fought to keep their humanity only gained insanity. And I volunteered to join S.I.R.E.N.'s weapon initiative, and had been tricked into executing my own wife. And as I'm tampering with my gift, and the last thing I remember is really wanting to leave where I was. Then, a portal opened and thats when I met another formal S.I.R.E.N. officer, and went a whole other direction."
Seems like a bright kid. Gotta show him the truth though. I drilled through the half mile thick steel plating protecting the underground lab, (I'm expecting alarms to go off soon) flew down passed the ventilation shafts and came out in what appeared to be a main corridor. Data was what I was searching for, and I figured it might've been seperated for events such as this,or maybe there mightve been and key with ridiculously long password, but as I get the extra sensory signal I jam Blitz's arm into the closest terminal and release some cells in to override the the alarm system, and to my luck, found exactly what I was searching for. 13 more floors below had laid the alpha lab. Using the topographical data absorbed I shot in front of where the alpha labs doors were, and pushed on down.
This is my fourth instance with S.I.R.E.N. and their freaking labs. I always get nervous when I get near these places, because I never know what I'm going to find. I over rode the DNA input for the door and listened as the locks unfastened, and the door opened. As I walk into the beeping, clicking bubbling dark room, all I could see was gigantic containment tubes, and blinking lights from monitors everywhere. It was cold. Mad steam everywhere. There were a set of stairs leading down to more walkways lined with tubes four to five levels down. And in the middle at the bottom floor of the room, the biggest tube with a giants mass inside, swimming in what appeared to be a yellowish liquid, and a huge reflective mirror behind it. I had a ton of guesses as to what it couldve been or what was going on,but I shrugged it all off.
Ryan: "...You figure theyd have more security down here."
With the timing of how he said it, youd think he jinxed me or something because I got knocked all the way across the lab down to the main platform by a seven foot sentinel gaurd. Looks unmanned, so I aimed for the camera and took its head clean off. I figured by this time, someones gonna notice I'm down here, besides you know, tipping off the director earlier.
I hurried to the main console and "jacked in". The data I found was just absolutely ridiculous. Traps, plans, blueprints, lifelines, city structures, 10 and 20 year plans, systematic nomenclature... almost the exact same way "last time". I was both grossed out and horrified.
I was stuck in shock, but knew action wasnt too cold on my trail...
Ryan: "Whats wrong?"
Naughtaisle: "Nothing actually. Just found out how S.I.R.E.N. plans on getting more control over this place. These people are doomed..."
Just the, the door burst open with S.I.R.E.N. personnel, guards and scientists alike drawing weapons and holding defensive positions.
S.H.D.: "What do you think youre doing?"
Naughtaisle: "Didnt I tell you, youre already too late???"
S.H.D : " Youre not going ANYWHERE!!! OPEN FIRE!!!"
I grabbed Ryan and made another exit towards the main corridor, shot past some of the gaurds for distraction purposes, and started randomly shooting to get an explosion thing going, but this wasnt thier first run-in with having thier stuff implode on them. I flew back through the floors I came, ran to the hole in the wall and flew out with with Ryan unharmed as I raced for the cargo dock.
Ryan: "What are we gonna do now? I cant go back and Im not trying to get caught with you! Also, you still never explained what you found back there."
Naughtaisle: "Pilot a mobile suit and follow me. I'm not going to leave you hanging but first, I have to get you somewhere safe. Lets talk about it AFTER we get outt--"
The bay roof hatch opened. More mobile suits.
Naughtaisle: "RYAN, STAY CLOSE, TO THEM YOURE AN ENEMY NOW!!"
I switched back to Do and started burning everyone I saw. I get some height and provide enough of a distraction for Ryan to get in the air. As we're escaping, there was a monstorous mass flying after us with increasing speed.
Naughtaisle: "Ryan! There's a bunker to the southeast of here in the forest. Its hidden by an active cameoflouge. The password is C-O-R-E! Tell them I sent you!"
Ryan: "Okay! I'll ditch the mobile suit before I get close so they cant track my movements! Wait!
Ryan: "Whats your name?"
