Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 10:59 PM
Angel looked horrorstruck. She'd been expecting attacks, but not this early, and not like this. She seemed like she wanted to cry.

"I have to stop them..."

Karen didn't have very long to process that, though...

***

The speed demon's motorcycle pulled up to the police station unnoticed and vanished into thin air, leaving a real Demon standing in its wake - Remus Von Grath, having built himself a new set of 350-pound armor, teleported up to the roof of the station, appearing somewhere in the middle.

He had no time to waste. He knew why he was here. He was just about to put his plans into motion when a familiar voice stopped him.

"Hey."

Remus snapped his head around an unnatural distance to glance across the roof at Firehawk. He'd been followed.

"You're supposed to be dead," FH sneered, boldy striding towards the Demon.

"So are you," Remus said in a cold, wisp of a voice.

Firehawk snickered and stopped only a few feet from the seven and a half footer.

"You know, the Gatekeeper used to throw an old phrase around. It went something like, "We do not understand the Powers at Work here.' I think I just found out what that means."

"Good for ya," Remus remarked coldly, no emotion in his voice as he didn't want to deal with FH right now... not until he remembered his instructions.

"You looking for work?"

That got Leroy's attention.

"Kinda work?" he asked curiously.

"Vengeance," was the hateful reply.

"I'm in," FH stated seconds later, "What do you need?"

"First, we destroy this structure," Remus relayed his orders, "Then, I introduce you to my Master."

FH thought about it for a few seconds.

"Sure," he said, stepping back a few paces, "Demons first."

Remus too separated himself a few large paces, then quickly raised his fist high in the air and brought it down on the roof, sending out a shockwave with the Force, splitting the structure wide open and creating a crack across the entire thing.

Firehawk jumped inside in a heartbeat and immediately set the place on fire and casting a flurry of flaming lightning bolts at anything living he found.

Remus landed in a different section of the top level a moment later and immediately summoned his lightsaber, and cut a support beam and used the Force to collapse the floor below him onto the level beneath. He kept his footing and slid down to the level and went to work with his lightsaber.

The distant rumbling and crashing woke Tracy right back up. She stood up and walked over to the door, while still listening to whatever sounds the building was making.

Karen's hand immediately went to her holstered weapon and she frantically looked around as she heard and felt the commotion. Though in the holding cell area, neither Firehawk nor Remus could actually be seen.

At about the same time, Jack, Kyle, and Marissa all tested to see if the interrogation room doors were locked or not, with one thing in mind - reuniting with the others and getting the hell outta dodge.

"They're HERE!" Angel shrieked in obvious terror, having sensed the both of them. She jumped up to her feet.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:06 PM
Tracy tested the knob, to find it unlocked. Slowly she inched the door open, to see what was outside.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 15 2014, 11:06 PM
Erika, who was still hanging around the station for some reason, went straight to the interrogation area to find the others.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:10 PM
Karen looked at Angel. She still didn't trust her, but she did know that she had the power to escape this cell with ease, so if she was on the attackers' side this was a really weird and elaborate con. She only had to debate about half a second whether or not to let her out.
"Warden! Keys!" She snapped at the prison warden standing guard at the end of the hall. Unsure what was going on, he tossed the keys across the room, which Karen expertly caught and immediately used to unlock Angel's door.

---

Jack and Marissa burst straight out of the rooms into the hall, while Kyle opened it slowly and peered out cautiously, as unbeknownst to him, the same as Tracy was.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:12 PM
Presuming she could see Jack and Marissa, and there were no guards to stop her, Tracy came the rest of the way out.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 11:17 PM
Angel came out warily, like she wasn't sure what she wanted to do.

"We need to get out of here..." she said in what sounded like a despaired whimper almost, "We can't fight them head on. That's Remus and Firehawk up there. They're working together."

***

And indeed they were. Firehawk had killed everything on the top level and burned the vital equipment beyond repair and recovery. He then cut a hole with his flamesabre in the floor on the polar opposite end of the level as Remus, who sensed him drop, and together they Force-Crushed the entire top level, sending it crashing down on top of the second level while the two of them stayed in the staircases, inspecting the damage and looking for any survivors.

***

The ceiling was beginning to show large cracks. It was going to give soon. Very soon. They had to get out. Now.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 15 2014, 11:17 PM
Erika ran into the hall to join them. "Hey guys." She said, almost as if nothing was happening. She seemed a little excited.
    Uriah appeared behind her. "Everyone head to the exits." He told them, making his way down the hall and opening doors, checking for other suspects. "Now."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:19 PM
"Time to go?!" Tracy half-asked, half-yelled, as she looked at her assorted friends and acquaintances, before turning and running for the door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:19 PM
"How do you-" Karen started to ask, but stopped as a portion of the ceiling came down, "Fuck it, explain later, just MOVE!"

---

Kyle came out into the hall as well - meanwhile Jack went straight for the interrogation room he knew Sakura to be in and kicked the door in. Even though it was unlocked. Because that's how Jack does business.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 11:27 PM
Angel started down the hallway with Karen in tow, when suddenly that portion of the ceiling collapsed, and the roof covering the other direction had collapsed moments ago.

Panicking for a moment, Angel came up with a Plan B.

Showing off her own destructive power, she charged up and fired an explosive bolt of Light towards the exterior wall, which obliterated a sizable chunk for them to escape into.

"Through the hole, go!" she commanded, already making for it herself.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:28 PM
Tracy was still running for a door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:34 PM
Karen paused before following Angel, as there was one other person in a holding cell. Not knowing who he was or why he was there, she quickly unlocked the door and continued after Angel through the whole. Outside, they found... a rather steep dropoff, as apparently this police station was on a hill. A grassy hill, thankfully.

---

Jack grabbed Sakura by the arm, pulled her to her feet, and dragged her out of the room and into the hall. If she continued to be asleep he'd pick her up.

"Marissa!"
"I'm fine, just get the hell outta here!" The blue girl yelled back at her half brother as she ran up behind him and Jack. Kyle lead the way following Tracy, pausing only to avoid a burning chunk of ceiling collapsing just in front of him. He jumped over it and continued onward.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 15 2014, 11:36 PM
Erika ran along with the group. Uriah finished his search quickly then followed the rest, bringing up the rear.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:37 PM
Apparently Tracy reached the door and went outside.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 11:40 PM
Angel didn't stop at the edge of the hill and threw herself off of it high in the air, landing at the bottom like a ballerina on her feet.

***

Firehawk and Remus had gotten into a bit of a debate, which happened to be the only reason this building was still standing.

"...they are Marked. You do not touch them."

"All of them?"

"Yes, all of them."

"DAMMIT!"

A column of fire erupted behind Firehawk, shooting up from the first floor, actually, where the kitchen was.

"I did not say you couldn't make their lives miserable. But make it quiet. Now move."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:42 PM
Karen didn't stop at the edge of the hill either, she slipped in the wet grass and tumbled and rolled all the way down.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:43 PM
Tracy stopped outside and waited for the others to catch up.

Muffles was outside, still in full theatrical garb. And holding a handgun.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 11:43 PM
And eventually slid to a stop beside Angel, who was glancing up at the burning, crumbling station with a helpless expression.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:47 PM
Karen staggered up to her feet as quickly as possible, holding her side with one hand, pistol in the other, muttering something under her breath about 'getting too old for this shit'. Once on her feet, she too looked up at the crumbling station.

---

The investigator was outside when the attack happened. He'd just lit a cigarette - a cigarette which now hung from his gaping mouth, barely clinging on to his lower lip.

---

The others soon joined Tracy outside, and kept running, till they were well away from the entrance. No doubt a lot of cops were pouring out as well.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:48 PM
Tracy got the hell away, with the others, of course.

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 15 2014, 11:48 PM
Cop #2 was standing outside, somehow covered in soot. Cop #1 was next to him, somehow perfectly clean.
    Erika looked back at the building once they were a ways away. "So, uh...who'd you guys piss off this time?" She asked the group.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:49 PM
"Social services..." Kyle replied breathlessly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:49 PM
Tracy went to one knee on the ground and just huffed and puffed for a while.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 15 2014, 11:50 PM
As if right on cue, Remus and FH arrived on the first floor, and in cleanup mode by now, simply repeated the routine of crushing the floor above, what was left of it, and with a simultaneous teleport, they were gone, and the station collapsed inward on itself in a final, fiery explosion.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:52 PM
    Marissa grabbed the sides of her head and let out a frustrated yell.
    "You okay?" Kyle asked.
    "Building we were in just exploded, why wouldn't I be?" She sat down on the pavement, "I'm not hurt." She grumbled.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:53 PM
"Firehawk needs to die." Tracy remarked softly, standing up. She suspected he'd been behind all of it.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 15 2014, 11:56 PM
"Ya think?" Erika said, glaring at the building. "It could be Greasy Pizza next."


Uriah looked around until he spotted Angel and Karen then made his way to them, assuming they'd have answers. He pointed at the flaming building behind him with his thumb. "What the hell was that?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 15 2014, 11:58 PM
"It was a police station." Jack said helpfully, earning a glare from Karen.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 15 2014, 11:58 PM
"Now what?" Tracy asked softly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 12:17 AM
"Remus Von Grath," came the high-pitched, shrill voice of Bearer, who had appeared out of nowhere, as he tended to do, in response to Uriah. Karen and Angel, by the way, had made their way over to the rest so Uriah didn't go far, "The Demon from Hell... I told you it was going to happen, Angel..."

"Now isn't the time for a lecture, Father..." Angel tried to talk her way out of it.

"You could have stopped this, before it ALL started, my beautiful daughter!" Bearer snapped, for the first time upset with Angel.

Angel tried to turn away.

"LOOK AT ME!"

She turned back.

"The Lord of Darkness seeks our souls, Angel. We could ha-"

"What do you expect me to do?" Angel retorted, sounding a combination of upset and helpless, "I'm one woman. You can't possibly expect me to take on Firehawk, Remus, and this "Lord of Darkness," whoever he is!"

"The Gatekeeper was a-"

"I don't care about the Gatekeeper! I am not the Gatekeeper! I am not seven feet tall, 300 pounds, and I can't conjure a storm powerful enough to wipe out a battalion of troops! I am not as strong as the Gatekeeper, or any other of your children, and I never will be! Get it through your head!"

Angel planted herself on the ground after her mini-rant.

Bearer came up beside her and knelt down, apparently oblivious to the crowd of people.

"There is still time, Angel. Some day..."

"I don't want power. I want to never need to use what I have."

"And to accomplish that, you need to gain in strength."

"Put as much power as you want into me with that thing," Angel spouted off, tapping the Urn, "It's still three on one. I've got no chance."

Post by: Tyler294 on May 16 2014, 07:16 AM
"Remus is alive? I guess I should stop ever believing it whenever somebody says one of these magic people is dead; they never are." Tracy thought to herself, having been eavesdropping in on the conversation.

She cleared her throat after a moment to try and get Angel's attention.

"What about Zin?" she asked Angel, "And what about the rest of us? There are people who will help you Angel... or try to at least."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 12:53 PM
"Your courage is appreciated," Angel said with a faint trace of a smile, "But this is suicide. And I... I don't want to see any of you die."

On her mind right now was what Bearer had said earlier - something about the Lord and his list. She hadn't paid much attention before, but now... take a guess.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 16 2014, 02:43 PM
Sakura watched as everything transpired around her. One question kept going through her head as she observed the devastation.
"Why?" she whispered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 16 2014, 08:14 PM
"And what are we supposed to do then, sit back and watch you die fighting alone? Then we'll all die later. So, yeah you won't have to see us die, but we'll still die anyway. And wi--"

Tracy stopped, as she had nearly forgotten Karen was there.

"We should figure it out when we get home." she settled for instead.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 08:24 PM
"None of you are going to die!" Angel vetoed that statement with a harsh yell, standing back up and glaring at Tracy with a rare intensity in her eyes, "I don't know how I'm going to do it but when I die, dammit, I'm taking ALL THREE of them with me!"

That said, she gave herself a bit of breathing room by moving a little ways past the sea of sentients. She felt like she was back at the Tavern before a barfight for a moment there.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 16 2014, 08:53 PM
Tracy was taken aback for a moment, but ultimately undeterred. She followed Angel, not closely as to be invading personal space, but close enough so that Angel could hear.

"You're not shutting me out. I sick as hell of these power-diluted assholes murdering people and attacking us. If you think I'm going to keep standing back like some worthless little... something that's worthless and little... well you're wrong." she stated, voice a bit harsh.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 08:58 PM
Angel spun around, fiery as ever.

"I like that. Someone who wants to bring the fight to the invaders. You. You're like Rene before she went crazy and fell in love with me. You can go places. I like you."

She thought about how weird that statement sounded for only a moment.

"You want to help? Call me whenever you can meet me "down there." I'll explain more later."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 16 2014, 09:00 PM
Avoiding the temptation to blink stupidly at Angel's first awkward statement, Tracy instead endeavored (for once) to maintain a serious disposition.

"I'm ready now." she replied, folding her arms in front of her chest.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 09:04 PM
"Too open. People might hear. Let's go with... tonight. Should we get home."

She thought about that statement for less than she thought about the last one.

"We will get home."

She then turned to look for Karen.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 16 2014, 09:20 PM
"Not yet you won't, I still need an explanation as to what just happened and how to stop it from happening again - powers that be want me to arrest you again." Karen replied, evidently having overheard Angel's last statement.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 16 2014, 10:11 PM
"What just happened?" Angel repeated, sounding a little rhetoric, "A Demon and a madman just destroyed your station looking for something, presumably me. How do you stop it? Keep me as far away from anything you don't want destroyed as possible, and pray they don't come for you for "guilt by association" virtues."

She was clearly upset about this whole thing right now, and the last thing she wanted was to deal with "authorities."

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 16 2014, 10:34 PM
Sakura's hand brushed up against the hilt of her Saber hanging from her belt. There had to be something they could do to stop this.

"You're going to need all the help you can get," Sakura finally said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 12:08 AM
Karen looked around. "Where are they now then? If they were here for you, which I don't doubt, why are they gone and you are not?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 12:18 AM
Erika and Uriah both listened silently.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 05:01 AM
Tracy was doing the same. Waiting and listening silently, that is.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:50 AM
"I don't know," Angel said after a moment of intense thought and concentration, "I can't think like a Demon. I know what my Father told me, and that is that we were being targeted by this "Lord" who has eradicated his family since the beginning."

"And how did he do just that, pray-tell?" Bearer cut in, stepping to the foreground once more, "By seducing my children, my perfect children, one-by-one, to the Darkness, by destroying everything they held cherished. And when they were weak, he SEIZED THEM!"

Bearer once more looked angered, but not at Angel this time. More like at the world.

"You are not the target, Angel. I am. He has been hunting me since before space travel was initiated on a galactic scale. He wants my Urn, and he knows he cannot get it until the last of the bloodline falls. By HIS hand!"

Angel was silent for a moment, wondering why Bearer hadn't said this sooner.

"Does that answer your question?" she echoed to Karen, seeming a bit annoyed at her FATHER, who came up to her with the Urn, which she took on instinct from him, it doing its thing with the particles of Light.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:59 AM
"How about ya stop freakin' out," Sakura finally snapped at Bearer. "I get it now, ya got a bigass target on yer back."
She crossed her arms across her chest.
"Now... ya got a plan to deal with it or do we have to figure it out ourselves?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 04:04 PM
"Sakura... Father isn't freaking out. This is how he usually speaks," the glowing aura of particles that was currently Angel snapped back at her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 07:01 PM
"You said you could track Firehawk. Use that and we can take him down." Karen said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 07:07 PM
"Took the words right out of my mouth," Angel said to that, but had a look of concern on her face, "The problem is if Remus and Leroy attacked together, they might be traveling together. And I had no idea they'd be in it together. I thought Firehawk was too crazy to form alliances."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 07:16 PM
"You'll need to tell us everything you know about how to stop the both of them then."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 07:30 PM
"Firehawk is too deranged to predict. At least he used to be. He's always been insane, but with flashes of high intelligence. Admittedly, I didn't exactly adhere to his strengths when trying to reform him over his life - his strengths being destruction and murder - but if this 'Lord' has a hold on him..."

Angel clearly was struggling a bit to think of FH as anything more than a maniac, but she did come up with something.

"He has the potential to be a world-altering power. He idolized the Gatekeeper and the Shadow Empire in his youth, and I think he still does. If this 'Lord' can get him to do what I never could and open his mind to the possibilities, he could-"

"He could wind up like my eldest son," Bearer cut Angel off, earning him a glare, as that was not what she was going to say, "I know this path well. When the Lord took Ludamigus away in his early years, he was a brilliant, powerful, but conflicted boy... when he emerged after a thousand suns and a thousand moons, he was known as the Gatekeeper, the Emperor of the mysterious Shadow Empire. An Empire that would expand twin galaxies, multi-dimensions, and even this pocket-dimension. And I know, we may be cut off from it, but his Empire is alive and well out there, living in his image."

Angel had since confirmed her suspicion that her father was holding back information, and he should be in jail, not her.

"Okay... so he's going to turn out like a mini-Geeky," she came up with, shrugging her shoulders, which wasn't very visible since most of her was consumed in bright white particles.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 08:01 PM
Karen just glared at the both of them.

"How did you say you could track him...?" Kyle asked, taking a step closer, wanting this thing dealt with as soon as possible.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:10 PM
"My computer," Angel replied to Kyle, then looked back at Karen, "To finish your answer, unless I am interrupted again, we've stopped Firehawk in the past by simply outsmarting him. He has never been a rational decision maker. Get him upset, and watch him walk right into your trap. If he's aligned with someone like Remus, though, I don't know if he will continue to do that."

Bearer looked like he wanted to speak again, but a wave of particles that was Angel's arm shushed him.

"Remus is far too dangerous to try to take head-on. He knows when he is beat and he knows when he is not, and when he is beat, he always takes something with him. He's one of the most intelligent and complicated people I have ever met. His lifespan goes back even farther than this planet's existence does. As far as powers go, he lost most of his connection to the supernatural when the dimensions sealed, so he's not as strong as he used to be, but that said he is still by far the most powerful man on this planet... or he seems to be. As far as I know, his only real weakness is that he tends to get over-aggressive in direct combat when he thinks he is winning. So... don't try to out-smart him. Try to goad him, and be resilient while doing so."

She pulled her arm back from Bearer, who stayed silent this time.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 08:14 PM
"What first?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:31 PM
"First, I track Firehawk. We can track him for another 6 days or so, give or take a few hours unless something drastic happens. Once I locate him, we need to determine if he is alone. If he is, it's about time I said this, we put him down. Plain and simple. If he isn't, and if there is any chance we can run into Remus, we need to figure out something besides taking him out by getting close to him."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 08:33 PM
"I can snipe him. Firehawk, that is." Tracy volunteered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 08:34 PM
Uriah gave Tracy a look. "You have a rifle?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 08:37 PM
"No, not anymore." Tracy admitted.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:38 PM
"There is one problem with that," Angel cut in, "I'd expect you to remember, Trace. He's brought it up with me numerous times and it is something I can totally relate to as I've done it myself. He can sense snipers. Something about their signatures through the Force changes when they're about to perform a deadly action. He can dive out of the way, and he's done it before, to you, last year when you first battled him. I can confirm that it happens as I do it myself and it's been noted in several books I have."

"What if my signature could be masked?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:44 PM
"Doing that is also risky. Masking a trace with a mechanical device is essentially removing it, creating a voided area. An alert magic user can detect that voided area, and I don't know about Leroy, but I personally would investigate that. The best way to mask a trace is to do it naturally, to make it seem like you are something you're not."

Angel thought about that for a moment.

"I could probably do it for you, actually, if I was with you downrange from where he was. The issue then though is the conditions."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 08:46 PM
"What conditions?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:49 PM
"Are we in a populated area? What might get perforated after Firehawk's head is eviscerated? Is there any possible way this could go wrong?" Angel came back with, "You can't just walk into a place, set up, and snipe someone. You need to be precise, and careful. Even the wind can be a factor. And there is the very real possibility that this could backfire and we might be followed wherever we go by the Demon incarnate, should Leroy be alone."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 08:52 PM
"Obviously..." Tracy replied, "Though, maybe we could set up a trap for them somehow."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 08:55 PM
"Hold on," Erika cut in. "What about the other two? You can't snipe them all."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 08:56 PM
"And what if Firehawk was distracted?" Sakura asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 08:58 PM
"A strike team could be assembled, we could have as many as a dozen snipers." Karen said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 08:59 PM
"I'd like to know my opponent's poker face before I play my cards," was Angel's reply to all of them.

Bearer meanwhile reached over and tried to take the Urn from her, and said attempt was thwarted.

"Daughter, you have taken enough for one day," he said.

Angel shot him a look.

"You said this thing was gonna show me the Light and get me outta the Darkness. I'm letting it do that."

"Be careful, Angel," Bearer said.

"Of?" she replied.

"Something that is just how you want it to be."

"..."

Bearer took his leave and walked away, leaving her with the Urn.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 09:00 PM
"Would that even work though?" Erika continued. "After all, Remus has died before."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:03 PM
"She's got a point..." Tracy sighed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:07 PM
"So have I," Angel added, "I only managed to come back by having an extensive system in place and outside interference, something I cannot do again. Remus doesn't have the technology to use that system, and at the time he died, had no outside interference, because he's the only one who can. He simply must have lived, somehow."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:08 PM
"But you said yourself you don't understand Remus. What if he has something in place you don't know about?" Tracy pointed out.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 09:11 PM
"If you don't know how he came back, how can you know that he won't simply live after a bullet to the head? Somehow." Erika questioned. "We need a backup plan. Or two."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:11 PM
"Earlier you said a cafe was connected, how so?" Karen asked, not really caring about subjects that could only be speculated about.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:13 PM
Sakura sighed, having been ignored. She was still listening, but she closed her eyes for the time being.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:18 PM
Angel couldn't answer all three of them at once, so she went with the professional.

"It was me saying 'if you take me there, I will take you to them and somebody won't come back.' I'll do it if ya like. But I'd rather play it smart. Maybe being in jail when I know I have a Demon coming after me takes a strain on my rational thinking."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:21 PM
"Fine, I'll leave the planning to you. But I'm going to be involved somehow. I want a shot at taking one of them down." Tracy stated, then went back to silence.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:24 PM
"Angel..." Sakura said, opening her eyes and looking at her friend.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 09:24 PM
"There's a line." Erika said in response to Tracy, a hint of bitterness the others hadn't heard from her before in her voice.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:26 PM
Angel nodded in Tracy's direction, seeming to side with her, the one she knew better, then looked at Sakura, wondering why she was interrupting her during an important conversation.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:28 PM
Not sure what Erika meant, Tracy didn't reply to her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:28 PM
"What kind of distraction would give Tracy the opening she needs?" Sakura asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:30 PM
Angel was starting to wonder if Sakura did this on purpose.

"You want to entice him to do even more damage? No thank you," she replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:34 PM
"Then either I'm gonna need serious help learning more about the Force, or I should just stay with Eleanor, because I don't know what else I can do to help," Sakura said. "I doubt my blaster can do much against a demon, and if Firehawk's got that armor again..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:35 PM
"I dunno, I shot a demon once..." Kyle said. Karen and Marissa gave him questioning looks.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:35 PM
"Yeah you did." Tracy agreed. "...You shot me too..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:36 PM
"Sorry.."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:38 PM
Tracy shrugged.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:39 PM
"Sakura..." Angel said hesitantly, "What you need to do is stay the heck away from anything that could potentially be dangerous to anyone's health, be it Firehawk, Remus, or anything else that resembles a target."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:40 PM
"You said that others beside yourself were targets - who are they? They could be his next destination." Karen piped up again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:41 PM
Sakura closed her eyes and sighed.
"Alright..." she said. "I... I should figure out where Eleanor is then. Make sure she's alright... if she'll even let me..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:44 PM
Angel's posture shot up.

"Oh my God," she immediately started to panic, then calmed herself down, "Father talked of the Marked. A list of people the Lord wants eliminated to get into the head of his prey. He's been doing this for eons. In  this case, he would be targeting people I am close to or have had communication with. People like... Tracy, the Raynes, Sakura, maybe even you, Erika. People who know too much about me, about the Lord, or about Remus. Whatever that means."

She then paused for a moment, then recoiled again.

"That includes Eleanor, doesn't it? We gotta get her outta that hospital!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:46 PM
"Vehicle?" Tracy looked around.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:47 PM
    Marissa hopped up to her feet. "What about Mom and Dad?"
    "Your father's at Joyce Enterprises right now, don't know about Samantha." Karen replied absently as she pulled her phone up to her ear and turned around. She was calling the hospital.
    Kyle looked confused. "No, he should be home as well right now... I'll call them." He also pulled his phone out, then paused - "What do I tell them? Where should I tell them to go?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:47 PM
Sakura's eyes instantly shot open.
"Eleanor's in..." she trailed off. "Which hospital?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:50 PM
"If they have a safehouse, go there. Somewhere people wouldn't think to look," Angel replied, also on her device, her communicator, but she wasn't calling anyone. She was calling her jet.

"My jet will be here in a few minutes," she said absently, "Tracy, you're coming with me. There's room in the back for several if anyone wants to get dropped off anywhere."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:52 PM
"I don't care what anyone says," Sakura said in a determined tone. "I'm going for Eleanor."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:52 PM
Karen hung up her phone and turned back to face the group. "Tarkarus can't find her in her room. They're searching the grounds now."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 09:53 PM
Tracy just nodded in acknowledgement of Angel and waited.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 09:53 PM
Sakura swore.
"She snuck out didn't she? I gotta find her. Which hospital was she in?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 09:54 PM
"Not alone you're not," Angel shot at Sakura, "For once in your life listen to me. You are on a list of people to be slaughtered. You are not going ANYWHERE alone!"

Then she heard Karen's news.

"Tell them to check security footage if they have any."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 09:55 PM
"Tarkarus Hospital..." Karen deadpanned in reply to Sakura, as she'd just said the name a second ago.


Kyle had called home and was waiting nervously for someone to pick up.


Karen began making more calls.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:01 PM
"And I can't abandon her Angel," Sakura replied. "I'm going to find her."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:04 PM
"Sakura," Angel started to say, "No one here is going anywhere alone. There are no exceptions. Not even you. Think about something besides yourself and your own goals for once. You endanger your life and the life of Eleanor more by leaving for her alone."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:04 PM
"I'll go with her." Jack said, probably not understanding the full gravity of the situation.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:07 PM
Angel looked at Jack intensely.

"Can you use a weapon?" she asked, "A ranged weapon."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:07 PM
"I'm NOT thinking about myself Angel!" Sakura snapped. "I'm thinking about Eleanor! She's more vulnerable than any of us right now!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:08 PM
    "Yes." The military had taught him how to handle assault rifles and pistols.

    "Dammit.." Kyle whispered.
    "What is it?" Marissa asked.
    "Nobody picked up." He began redialing to try again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:10 PM
"Shut up!" Angel snapped at Sakura, "You are NOT going alone! I am not going to risk your death!"

She looked back at Jack.

"We'll get you a gun. You follow Sakura wherever she goes. Don't let her out of your sight. Got it?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:12 PM
"Got it." Jack affirmed.

"Hi Mom, or Dad, this is Kyle, Marissa and I are fine but something's come up, call us back as soon as possible." Kyle said upon reaching his home's answering machine again. Unable to do much more, he pocketed the phone.
"Who... who else is Marked?" Marissa asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:16 PM
Sakura started pacing, feeling boxed in again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:16 PM
"I don't know," Angel answered, "Father said there are a lot of people. People I know, people Firehawk knows, people Remus knows, and people we've all interacted with. That's a huge list."

Angel jet appeared just then and touched down with extreme precision about 20 yards away. It didn't create any wind at all, and the back opened as a ramp extended down.

"Okay... that's my - no. Weapons," Angel snapped her fingers and made for the back, "Whoever wants a gun come over here."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:17 PM
Kyle and Jack wanted guns. Marissa trailed along a little ways behind them. Karen was still making calls.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 10:17 PM
Tracy followed right away.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:18 PM
"I'll need a ride to the hospital as well," Sakura said as she followed them. "Considering we don't have our own vehicles here right now."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:22 PM
Angel led the list of characters and whomever may join up the ramp, where they found a few storage boxes tied down and one of the walls totally covered in weapons, which happened to be labeled.

Angel quickly pulled one down and handed it to Tracy. It was a compact rifle with a long barrel and a large, retractable scope with an alien design.

"SMG. Sniper rifle scope attachment and barrel extension," she demonstrated by pulling a lever on the barrel and compacting it down and compressing the scope with another small lever into an advanced sight, "Use of the barrel extension activates sniper mode. Don't ask why I keep so many guns in this thing. And no, none of these are legal."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 10:26 PM
"Um... wow. Thanks." Tracy responded, handling the weapon and checking over its action and the like.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:28 PM
The Anima looked to Marissa next.

"Small arms? High caliber? rocket launcher? Minigun? What's your style?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:29 PM
"Uh... small arms I'm sure." Since ya know, she had small arms.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:32 PM
Angel sighed.

"I gotta do something with that minigun someday..." she muttered, "Maybe mount it on the cockpit of this thing or..."

Mumbling about miniguns and the like, she reached over to the wall and came back with a very small handgun. It had sights, but no scope.

"Be careful with that," she said to Marissa, handing her the weapon, "It's more evil than it looks."

She then turned to Kyle.

"Mr. Military Man," she greeted him, "Rifle I presume?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:34 PM
Marissa began looking for the safety controls...

"Sure." Kyle replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:38 PM
Safety controls? Hah. Cool story, bro.

"Here ya go," Angel came up after a moment with a rather interesting looking piece of machinery. It was a rifle by most intensive purposes. It had sights, the handle, the butt, the stock, everything you'd expect except the ammo since it was AM powered, but once you got to the front, you could see that it was clearly a rotary triple-chamber AM blaster.

"Have fun with that," she said to him with a sweet smile, "Semi-auto fires a triple-burst in a straight line. Full-auto is a dream come true for a military man."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:39 PM
Sakura thought for a minute. She had her Saber and her Omni Tool, but had actually left her blaster at home.
"I'll take a pistol," she said. "Kinda left mine at home, and all I got on me now are melee weapons."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:41 PM
Angel handed Sakura a sportsman's blaster. A regular one. With enough power to kill a deer.

"Only one I got. Found it on a corpse way out East."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 10:41 PM
"Extra clips?" Kyle asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:44 PM
"It's AM powered, don't worry about it," was the reply.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 10:50 PM
Sakura looked over the blaster. After a minute she slipped it into the holster on her hip, since she tended to use it for other things when it wasn't occupied by her own blaster, like holding tools.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 10:55 PM
Uriah was watching all of these possibly unlicensed civilians toting probably unlicensed guns and looking totally cool with that.
    Erika...had pulled out a phone and was texting someone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 10:56 PM
Angel popped out the back of the jet.

"Hey Erika!" she called over to her, "You're on the list, probably!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 17 2014, 10:57 PM
Tracy proceeded into the jet and waited.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 10:59 PM
"I know." Erika said, stuffing the phone back into her pocket and followed Tracy in.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 11:01 PM
"So you uh... you want a hand grenade or something?" Angel asked of her once she was in.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 11:01 PM
Erika shrugged. "Sure."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 11:03 PM
"..."

Angel went over to a case which held four grenades packed with who knows what, pulled one out and handed it to her.

"If you see Remus, throw this at him," she said, "Uhm... how about a ranged weapon to maybe buy some time to throw it?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 11:03 PM
Karen approached the jet. "You. You're going to have to keep in touch else I'll have to arrest you again." She called to Angel, "Tarkarus can't find Eleanor anywhere. She's gone."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 11:05 PM
Erika took the grenade and put it into her backpack along with all the other crap she toted around. "I'm partial to large caliber handguns."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 11:05 PM
Sakura tensed up a bit at the news Karen gave.
"Shtako... I'm an archaeologist, not a tracker..." she said under her breath.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 11:06 PM
Angel handed Erika a rather large pistol, looking similar to the one she gave Marissa, but bigger.

"I'm going to drop people off wherever they want to go and I'll come to find you. We'll go after her," Angel replied to Karen, "I'm not letting anyone get their hands on her."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 11:12 PM
Kyle's phone hadn't even completed one wring before he'd picked it up. "Mom? Is everything all right? Yes, of course we're- no, we weren't on the freeway. Is Dad with you? At work... why's he- actually never mind, just you two get somewhere else, anywhere else, like a friend's house or something, then call back. Doesn't matter, I'll explain later. We'll meet you there after you call. Okay. Okay. Okay. OKAY. Yes, love you too. Bye." He hung up.
    "They're fine?" His sister asked.
    "Yes." Kyle looked at Karen, "How'd you know Dad was at work and not home?"
    "Lucky guess. Keep in touch, I've got someone trying to dig up anything on Carl and Eleanor Tate." Karen replied, mostly to Angel.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 11:17 PM
Sakura looked over at Karen, taking a mental note on the information that she wasn't able to get herself. She then activated her Omni Tool and started checking for any kind of setting that might be useful in this situation. Several times she actually swiped her finger over it as though she was scrolling through different screens.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 11:17 PM
"I'll call you when I'm coming back," Angel stated with a nod, then slammed her hand hard against the side of the jet, "WE'RE LEAVING!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 17 2014, 11:19 PM
Erika put the gun in her back with the grenade, then started texting again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 17 2014, 11:20 PM
Kyle, Jack, and Marissa were all on board.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 17 2014, 11:22 PM
Sakura was also on board, still looking for a useful setting on the Omni Tool. After another minute, she gave up and took a deep breath.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 17 2014, 11:24 PM
Angel moved up to the pilot's seat, assuming the rest of them would find the seats in the back, and there were several of them, and after a few moments of pre-flight calculations and testing, she took off.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 05:52 AM
Tracy sat next to Erika, looking at her like she was crazy, since she was probably the first named character in Dawnbreaker history to text.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 18 2014, 11:56 AM
Sakuar had found a spot herself, and was now trying to figure out how to find Eleanor.


Yea... I think its safe to say she's taking her responsibility very seriously now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 05:35 PM
Erika was used to that look, and wasn't bothered by it at all.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 05:47 PM
And after a few minutes of quiet travel...

"Where am I taking you guys?" she asked her passengers, specifically Erika and the Raynes.

"I'm going wherever other people are going." Erika said unhelpfully.

"Okay so you're coming back with me," Angel decided for her, continuing her role of taking charge of the situation, "Tracy, you're going to the Mansion. Take that gun I gave you and stay there. Make sure nothing out of the ordinary happens. Sakura and Jack will be with you. I think you know why."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 05:59 PM
"Where are you going after you drop us off?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 06:00 PM
"Back to Karen," was the reply, with no official explanation. She didn't want Sakura to lash out needlessly again.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 06:02 PM
"What are the chances that Firehawk or Remus come to us in the Mansion?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 06:06 PM
"I'm not ruling it out. But your odds are better there than they are out in the open, and there will be three of you, and you have that gun. When you get there, go underground and find the first terminal with the blue screen. Press the circle in the middle, then call me. I'll access the computer and give us Firehawk's location. Got it?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 06:11 PM
Tracy's heart sank. It looked like Angel was going to go baddie-hunting while leaving keeping her out of the line-of-fire, again. But, somebody had to do these things.

"Alright." Tracy acknowledged, swallowing her pride and desire to do something big, "Are you gunna try get Eleanor to us first?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 06:33 PM
Angel wished Tracy hadn't have said that. She waited for Sakura to go into defiant in the face of logic mode.

"We will do whatever Karen and I deem the best course of action," she said, leaving the door wide open for just about anything.

***Misty Valley - Location Unknown***

Firehawk stood stalk still in front of a burning torch upon a wooden pike standing out of the wet grass. His eyes fixated on the fire, he was so entranced he was completely unaware of the Demon only a few yards from him, going about his business with the Lord of Darkness.

"His mind is strong. Very refined. The Chosen One certainly has a way with the brain, the heart, and the soul, as you said, Remus. Why, I am almost inspired by her work with this 'Man of Fire'..." said the Lord.

"He is an enigma," replied Remus in a wisp, "And for the last time, The Chosen One's name is Angel Grace. She may have to die, but give her some dignity in death. She has earned it."

The Lord of Darkness slowly turned around to face his Demon, a Demon who's hazy purple eyes even on the sunniest day looked menacing through that helmet.

"The Chosen One may have earned dignity, but do not forget what she stands for, Remus," he drawled, his own eyes hazy in the mist permeating through the valley, "And do not forget Sorgi's plan for her. We must destroy her before she consumes the Urn."

"So the Prophecy says," recalled Remus.

The Lord reached out to Remus, placing a mechanical hand upon his chest.

"Everything we have done, all we have accomplished, seen, lost, and gained. It has been according to the Prophecy. And the Prophecy states; "Onst thou darkest hour, angels shall fear to tread, demons shall ascend to the great plains, and-"

"And darkness shall consume all," Remus finished the Prophecy, "But this was but a single scroll of His work. How can we be certain we are following the correct one?"

"The others perished in a fire, and Darkness cast this upon my doorstep," the Lord spoke defiantly, "If we are wrong, I do not desire to be right."

The two Dark Lords stood there, glaring at each-other for a while until the Lord spoke again.

"The Third should be moving soon. Send him on his way, Remus."

"Yes, Master," Remus indulged with a bow.

Tracy just glared out the window.

"I hope this is going to be the end of it." she said softly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 07:30 PM
Marissa looked very uneasy about this plan. "Won't your mansion be one of the first places Remus or Firehawk would think to look?"



    Some time not so long ago...

    "Just one more second..." Jasper Gleamdust said yet again, face contorted in concentration. Then after a satisfying series of clicks, the doorknob was able to turn and swing inward. The Jedi Knight smirked as she pocketed her tools and stood up.
    "Told you I had it."

Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 07:34 PM
"It's also one of the safest, underground that is. Neither of them know about it," Angel answered, "Now where am I taking you and your brother?"

***

"We shoulda just cut it open," Jinn Blackdust said yet again, looking bored as hell leaned against the railing, "Or kicked it open, or broke it open, or gone in through a window..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 07:36 PM
"Safest... underground..." Kyle said slowly, wondering if that was supposed to be a joke.

***

"Don't want to disturb the neighbors." His companion replied as she stepped inside the apartment of Erika Bailey.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 07:39 PM
...

"Okay I'm dropping you off at home. You and your parents can go somewhere safe from there," Angel cut off the conversation, steering the jet in that direction.

***

"This place is a piece of shit," Jinn commented while looking around, Jasper's choice of wording starting to rub off on him.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 08:20 PM
"And what if they find us?" Marissa asked, looking at her rather wimpy looking gun.

***

"A very... clean piece of shit." Jasper replied, looking about the near empty apartment. There wasn't any clutter or furniture visible in the living room/kitchen areas.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 08:25 PM
"Use a gun," Angel stated, referencing Marissa's gun, "And if that don't work, use a bigger gun," referencing Kyle's gun.

...

"I can't be in multiple places at once, Marissa," she said on a more serious manner, "Maybe suggest grouping up with these three at the Mansion. I'll ask Karen about getting some protection for you regardless."

***

"There's nothing here..." Jinn furthered his point, "Kind of a... high-standard, robot-excess waste piece of shit."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 08:28 PM
"In a horror situation you never split up..." Marissa muttered too quietly for most to hear, looking at the floor.

***

"I'm sure there's something here... I'll check the bedrooms." Jasper replied, closing the front door behind her so as not to alert any passerbys of suspicious activity.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 08:34 PM
"This isn't horror. Not yet," Angel said with authority.

The rest of the trip was relatively quiet, as the Raynes were dropped at their household, Sakura and Jack at the Mansion, and before Tracy got off, Angel had this to say to her;

"You're in charge until I get back. Do whatever it takes to keep Sakura in line. Put a bullet in her leg if you have to."

***

Jinn was rummaging through the kitchen drawers. He didn't expect to find anything, but hey, some people hid interesting stuff behind their kitchenware.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 08:35 PM
"I don't think that will be necessary." Tracy replied, "But I'll keep it in mind."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 08:37 PM
And after Tracy was off, with Erika aboard, Angel took off again, and the first thing she did was call Karen.

"Karen, I'm back in the air. Tracy, Sakura and the alien are at my place. The Raynes are at their home, presumably about to ship out somewhere. What's your status?"

***

As the cousins and Jack entered the Mansion, the first thing they saw was Bearer, holding the Urn. How he got it back was anyone's guess.

"Back so soon?" he whispered at Tracy while eying the other two.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 09:04 PM
"Angel's got some chasing around to do. I'm here to watch the shop for now." Tracy replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 09:08 PM
"I take it she has revealed the Lord's plan to you, then?" Bearer implied, then backed off just as fast, "No matter. That is not how the Family tends to operate in a time of haste. But, we will manage."

He locked his eyes on the purplehead.

"I suppose then I owe you somewhat of an explanation to what this all is, hm?" he took a step closer, the age in his skin becoming a little more apparent now that he was relatively close.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 18 2014, 09:15 PM
"Yes. But let's all get downstairs first. Angel wanted me to get to one of her computer consoles and contact her."

Tracy then motioned for Sakura and Jack to come with.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 09:33 PM
One bedroom was completely empty. The other bedroom had a cot in the center, neatly made with the blanket tucked in. It was the fold-up kind people usually take camping, not sleep in regularly. On top of the cot was a large mechanical rabbit with a single ear in the center of its head, pointing straight up like an antenna.
    Inside the closet, if Jasper bothered to look (which I'm sure she did), were a dozen backpacks. All of them looked brand new, and a few were identical. There were also several pears of jeans, sweatpants, and cargo pants in varying colors, but mostly in darkish shades. There were a few camisoles, but mostly the shirts were long-sleeved and also in dark shades. In fact, nearly everything looked dark. The coats, backpacks, everything. The only bright spot in the closet was a vividly yellow sundress with ruffles and a teal belt.
    At the bottom of the closet there were two boxes; one wooden and one large and metal. The metal one was scuffed and darkened by heat.




In the kitchen Jinn found some stuff that people normally find in kitchen drawers, only less of it. There was some flimsy looking tableware in one drawer and a full knifeblock on the counter. Another drawer was full of various snackish items; pieces of candy, nuts, granola bars, etc. The next drawer was the strange one; it was full of cell phones. All looked brand new. Various brands, sizes, and colors, and every one of them was turned off.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 09:34 PM
"Hmm..."
Jasper tried to open the wooden box.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 09:41 PM
"Wow... look at all these brands she's probably not supposed to have," Jinn noted, leaving the drawer open for Jasper to find and moving on to the next room, whichever that was.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 09:52 PM
It opened like a tackle box with multiple trays. It appeared to be a large first aid kit. And second aid. It was all neatly organized. There was the usual stuff; bandages, ointments, a pair of scissors, a thermometer, etc on the top. Lower down it got a little stranger. Scalpels, morphine, syringes, forceps, and other similar tools. There was even an IV bag of saline and tubing to go with it.


Jinn found the bathroom. There was a medicine cabinet behind the mirror, holding a bunch of the normal stuff. Only two towels but a lot of old looking rags, some with stains of varying colors.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 09:54 PM
"I will not touch those," the criminally-adept Jedi said to himself in reference to the rags and went on to the next room.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 09:54 PM
The next room was the empty spare bedroom.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 09:55 PM
"...surgeons in league with gardeners... the plot thickens..." Jasper mused as she closed up the wooden box and tried the metal box.

***

"Haven't found Eleanor yet, in the flesh or on record. Only record of a Carl Tate was in a Capital outskirts ER from eight years ago." Karen's voice replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 09:59 PM
After wasting a moment or two looking for a trapdoor or something, Jinn shook his head and left for the next one, muttering something about not liking enclosed spaces.

***

"Well, I'm coming to you. The pizza girl is with me. Don't question it," Angel laid out her intentions, "If you can I'd like to get some sort of protection or escort or something for these people that we know are going to be hit. But for now we've got Eleanor."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:02 PM
"I've already sent for a team to be dispatched to the Rayne's home, but it'll take time thanks to the mess on the freeway." Karen replied, "Who else is on the list?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:06 PM
"That I know of? Tracy, Sakura, Miss Erika here, and you."

Rene Apocalypse III was, of course, on the list, but Angel wasn't about to ask Karen to find her - or protect her.

"Two of those three are at my Mansion right now. Where are you?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:06 PM
The metal one contained two half-burned pieces of wood and a little ash. The bottom and sides of the box were black, like it had been used several times to contain fire.


The next room was an empty closet.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:07 PM
Jinn glared at the empty space in front of him, cursing about enclosed spaces before looking around again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:07 PM
Jasped dug through the ash a little bit in the hopes of finding a legible fragment of something.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:08 PM
There was a tiny piece of what looked like part of a cotton towel, but nothing that looked like paper.


The next room was Erika's bedroom.

Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:10 PM
"Jasper I have a confession to make..." Jinn interrupted his partner as he walked in and sat down on the bed, rubbing his temples.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:12 PM
    Jasper jumped slightly, but recovered almost immediately upon realizing it was just Jinn, and pretended that she hadn't.
    "Oh?" She said, closing the metal box.

---

"Five minutes from the Lucas Military base." Karen replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:17 PM
"I... might be angry at enclosed spaces," Jinn confessed.

"Military base, eh?" Angel mused, "Alright. Tell them not to shoot me down."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:21 PM
Jasper looked around the big empty room. "Where'd you find an enclosed space?"

***

"Acknowledged."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:23 PM
Jinn was staring at the wall.

"There's a closet... and a spare room..."

***

Angel cut off the call right there and concentrated on flying.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:24 PM
"Anything in them?"

***

Wise choice, talking while flying has caused countless midair cloud collisions over the years.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:28 PM
"No... and they are most perplexing. And I don't like perplexing with my enclosed spaces..."

Jinn's eye twitched a couple of times, then he snapped out o his reverie and said, "Oh. Drawer of cell phones. I'm guessing their stolen."

***

Unless Erika said anything, Angel flew them to said military base.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:29 PM
Erika didn't say anything. Most of the flight she had her eyes on her phone, or, occasionally, out the window. Assuming there was a window.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:29 PM
"Box of cell phones? Huh. I found a box of surgery tools and ash."

Jasper paused for a while.

"So uh... wanna talk about it?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:34 PM
Jinn looked up at the ceiling, then at the wall, then hung his head.

"Yes..."

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:35 PM
"Um... is it all enclosed spaces, or just the ones here?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:40 PM
"A space filled with nothing. I can't be alone in it... it reminds me of some horrible power my Master told me about. Something that could potentially grab a hold of you or me and turn us... into nothing..."

Jinn was shivering a little, as though he were cold.

"It's a fate far worse than death, he said. You do not become one with the Force. You are simply... erased."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:41 PM
Jinn's shivering knocked the mechanical rabbit off the cot. It hit the floor with a loud thunk and a cracking noise.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:42 PM
Jasper went quiet for a while.

...

"Wow... that's some closet..."


The rabbit fell, and the dark elf peered around to see if it was OK.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:43 PM
A panel on its side looked dented in, and it started making a whirring noise.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:44 PM
Jinn dropped the subject and looked at the rabbit.

"What is that thing?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:45 PM
Jasper stood up and walked over to it to take a closer look.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:47 PM
It was a one-eared and newly dented rabbit. The dent probably wasn't a problem though. When Jasper looked closer she saw that it wasn't protecting any valuable parts, just what appeared to be empty space, though it was hard to tell because the panel was only dented in a tiny bit. It was dark inside.
    The whirring escalated into a sort of whine, making it sound almost sentient. Its solitary ear started rotating.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:52 PM
Jinn also stood up.

"It's not Robo-Cop... Robo-Rabbit?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 10:54 PM
Jasper picked it up, "Who framed Robo-Rabbit? Robocop'll find out. Then shoot whoever did it." She began gently trying to see if any of the panels were loose enough to be pried up without breaking it, so she could see what was underneath.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 10:57 PM
"Throw in some Brushland mobsters and a small but overpowered team of mercenaries and you've got yourself a movie!" Jinn proclaimed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 10:58 PM
The dented one was, actually. After a little resistance and a clicking sound, it swung open on hinges. It was apparently a storage space. It looked like Erika used the rabbit as a purse, even though she carried a backpack almost everywhere she went. Inside there was a pack of gum, four hundred dollars and a bit of change, tweezers, a pocketknife, two tampons, a granola bar, a can of pepperspray, a small white handled sixshooter, and yet another cell phone.

"...we have weird neighbors, Jinn." Jasper said after a while.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:01 PM
Jinn peered in and came to the same conclusion.

"Wonder why a Sith would keep in touch with someone like this..." he thought out loud.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 11:02 PM

"Absolutely."

...

"How?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:06 PM
"We wait her out. She's bound to come back here eventually. She's clearly not the Sith, but she might know who it is, or someone who can get us closer to him."

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 11:19 PM
"Sweet. I'll go get my toybox." Jasper skipped out the bedroom door and made for the front door. She came to a stop halfway through the living room as something caught her eye. Corner of her eye anyway. She turned and looked around again... nothing... just empty space... or was it? She coulda sworn she'd seen something on the wall just now. She approached it and began running her hands along the white side wall where she thought she'd seen a glint.

Jinn was coming that direction too, to go get his bag of tricks.

"What are you doing?" he asked her, giving her a look.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 11:24 PM
"Huh?" Jasper stepped back, not having realized Jinn was following. "Nothing. Thought I saw-" She then looked at a light on the wall suspiciously. She reached over and pulled a small device off it. "-something."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:25 PM
"What's that?" Jinn spied the device, which aroused both curiosity and concern.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 18 2014, 11:29 PM
It appeared to be a tiny wireless camera.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:31 PM
Jinn identified quickly, having had to counter things like this in the past.

"Get rid of that thing. It's a camera," he said, "There might be more of them."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:37 PM
"We can't go back to our apartment now; too dangerous. Might be a trap. We need to wait it out. Set up an ambush," Jinn theorized, looking around the immediate vicinity for more cameras and a possible source feed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:43 PM
Don't think he didn't know that, either.

"We can't take the chance. Even if this is just a personal security system, we can't let this person come back here and look at the recordings. We need to get a hold of her and take them from her. If she is an associate of someone close to the Sith, she could not only be a lead, but someone too dangerous to know of our presence..."

Eleanor, wherever she was, was eating a sandwich and not even a little bit worried about Sakura.

"Right, but what if she's watching right now? Or worse, what if the Sith is watching! We should-" Jasper stopped herself right there in case what she was saying was true. Then she used the Force to crush the camera and made a 'follow me' gesture with her other hand, heading towards the door.

Jinn didn't want to even think about that possibility as he followed Jasper, hand on his lightsaber.

***

The jet had entered military airspace and was looking for a place to land.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 18 2014, 11:51 PM
The military was trying to get a message through to her and giving her directions and clearance to land on a certain runway.



Once outside, Jasper began an inconspicuous walk down the sidewalk with her partner. She made it quite a ways away before speaking, but she didn't stop walking, "We definitely need to lie in wait for her to return - but not in her apartment. Can't risk the possibility that they already know of that plan. Can't stay in ours or hers."



Jack paused in a doorway when he noticed Sakura had fallen behind. "Are you following?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 18 2014, 11:57 PM
Angel landed on said runway.

"Everyone off," she said rhetorically, extending the ramp and unstrapping herself.

***

"We're not going back to our apartment," Jinn bluntly stated the situation, checking his pockets, hoping he had his necessary survival and criminal tools he carried everywhere with him, like his keychain and pocketwatch, which he did, "Why not pay the manager a visit?"

Erika got off. Her phone was finally put away again, and she looked around at her surroundings instead.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:01 AM
"No," Sakura sighed. "I just... I don't feel right hiding while Eleanor's out there."
She shook her head and leaned against the wall.
"I... I can't really explain it Jack. I just..."
She thought for a moment. For the most part her relationship with Eleanor was mostly on the neutral side, leaning towards friendly. But something changed. She closed her eyes as she tried to figure out what it was.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 12:02 AM
A couple soldiers and a low ranking officer ran up to the jet. "Angelica Crossroads and Erika Bailey?" The officer asked.

---

Now with a semi-plan, Jasper found a place to turn around and they began heading back to the apartments. "I've got a bad feeling about this..." She muttered.

---

"We'll go to the computer as instructed - if we can do nothing productive here we'll go elsewhere, either way, we'll find her." Jack replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 12:04 AM
"Yep." Erika said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:10 AM
Sakura didn't respond immediately, as she was still deep in thought. Her mind drifted back to when Firehawk went crazy back at her place, and she lost it defending Jack and Eleanor. Specifically when Sakura was about to lash out at Eleanor when the young girl stopped her from attacking Firehawk. Although Eleanor had pushed her away shortly after... Sakura may have forged a connection with her out of concern for the girl's safety when she realized what had happened.
"Jack... my behavior lately concerning Eleanor... how would you describe it?" Sakura asked, wondering what his opinion might be, and if she was on to something. Probably a long shot.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:11 AM
"Yes," Angel confirmed as she stepped off the jet, which took off and flew away after everyone was clear, "Where's Karen?"

***

"You will do as my daughter asks of you," Bearer, whom had not moved, informed them, "For no one can guarantee your safety outside these walls. In fact, I would go as far to say that any one on the list, not in my presence or Angel's, is in imminent threat of death."

His words were cold, indicating he did not care for the wannabe Terran or her alien friend, or even Tracy, really. And the way he spoke they seemed to indicate that Angel did not know this.

***

There was a knock on the apartment manager's door.

"C'min."

The door swung wide open and in stepped Jinn Blackdust and Jasper Gleamdust.

"Hey there Mr. Manager Sir. Nice place ya got..." Jinn rubbed his hands together.

"What are you two doing in my office? You don't work here!"

"We run this office now," Jinn proclaimed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 12:13 AM
"Inside. You'll need to come with me for the debriefing."

---

Jack thought about it for a moment, ignoring Bearer. "Aloof, perhaps."

---

Jasper smiled and cracked her neck.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:15 AM
The manager looked like he wanted no part of this.

"Okay. Okay! You can stay here! Just tell me what you want!"

"Access to your security system. And your silence," was Jinn's answer.

***

Angel followed the officer.

Jasper stood in the corner and looked intimidating. As intimidating as a petite five-foot tall elf woman can look, anyway.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:19 AM
Sakura gave Bearer a deadpan look before responding to Jack.
"I'm worried about Eleanor, Jack," she said. "On a level I can't describe. I just... she got through to me when I was willing to strike out at anyone back when Firehawk went nuts and... I... I don't know."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 12:19 AM
"I'm worried about the both of you." Jack replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:21 AM
The manager patched his office TV into the security cameras around the complex.

"There! Just don't hurt me!"

...

Jinn grabbed the manager and led him over to a closet, which he opened and disposed him into, then shut.

"Alright. Let's see what we've got here..."

***

Bearer looked highly annoyed.

"I can summon the Lord himself, right now if I so choose, I will have you know!" he pouted, clutching his Urn defensively.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 12:25 AM
Erika also followed the officer.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:30 AM
Sakura's attention snapped to Bearer.
"What?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:36 AM
Bearer smiled grimly.

"That got your attention, did it?" he snarled, "The Lord cannot resist the temptation of this Urn! I reveal it to him, he will come to me. But he cannot kill me. Not yet. My daughter is my rise and my downfall. You on the other hand?"

He grinned, revealing ghastly yellow teeth.

"You will not survive the Lord's wrath alone. So I encourage you, if you will, to FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:45 AM
"I don't take kindly to threats," Sakura growled. "And what you just did right now... was point a bigass gun at our heads. I doubt Angel would approve of you threatening her friends like that."
She got up off the wall and brushed passed Bearer.
"I don't know how long you've been around... but you obviously don't know as much about humans as you think."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:48 AM
"I am saving you," Bearer said in a cold voice, "From yourself. Your ancestors' blood runs through you. There is a reason my daughter does not trust you the way you think she does."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 12:49 AM
"And what the hell is that supposed to mean?" Sakura shot back, turning to face him.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 01:00 AM
"She knows what you are. Why do you think you are here? You have knowledge to find the girl, but are relegated to home security... she clearly views you as a liability. Believes you will hinder progress, like your ancestors before you."

"Angel is a smart woman, the smartest of all my children, and the Lord is the smartest Dark Lord of them all. Both can identify a weakness on sight. This is a chess match between them, but neither knows it yet. You, the Marked, are the pawns. How many of you will die before the end of the match?"

"She is my last child. If we cannot stop the Lord of Darkness, I fear there may never be another pair who can. And I will not allow the pawns to turn against us. If it means they have to die by the Lord's hand, so be it. But it is a far better fate than having to face his wrath after being defeated and captured by the Ministry of Darkness."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 01:09 AM
"I would never betray her," Sakura growled. "She's not only teaching me how to handle this power I've got, she saved my life! What makes you think I would even consider throwing away our friendship?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 01:16 AM
"There are some things more important than being a friend," Bearer came back with in a low voice, "To be counted on when the time is of the essence, need not a handler. Innovate on the fly. Among other things, but above all, you need to be trusted. Trusted with lives. Not only with your life, but with the lives of those around you. I would venture a suspicion that the purple one is here not to guard the home, but to guard you in order to, if you will, keep the pawns on the correct squares."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 01:33 AM
Sakura's right hand balled up into a fist, her Omni Blade flashing into existance for a moment, but not deploying.
"Eleanor is my responsibility," she snapped. "If I can't protect her... then how am I supposed to protect a child of my own someday?!"
She didn't realize that she had hit on one of the things that had been bothering her. She was starting to consider Eleanor family on some level, and her ability to protect her, and a future family of her own, was in question. She wasn't just trying to prove to herself that she could do it, she was trying to prove herself to Eleanor.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:09 AM
Sakura was knocked to the ground by a right hook in the jaw.

"Jack, carry her down into the basement, now!" Tracy snapped at the alien, being royally pissed off now that the people who were supposed to follow her to the basement had decided it was more productive to pettily argue in the hallway, "I'll catch up to you."

At this, she turned to face Bearer...

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 08:40 AM
Jack nodded and scooped Sakura up - he would've backed her up had it come to blows between her and Bearer, but he wasn't going to take sides in that verbal argument. He carried her to the basement.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 12:22 PM
Bearer seemed unphased by the prospect of physical violence, or the wrath of 'the purple one' as he glanced at Tracy with his beady little eyes.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 01:43 PM
Even though she figured Bearer to likely be as powerful as Angel, since he was her (and the Gatekeeper's) FATHER no less, Tracy decided backing down now was going to do her no favors. So she reached forward and grabbed Bearer by the collar and pulled him up closer to her.

"I don't take kindly to threats on me or my friends. And I will point out that summoning this Dark Lord here, as you said you could, would not only put the blood of your daughter's... pawns..." she growled out, the last word especially, "On your hands, but would also be a betrayal of her and would undermine, if not ruin, her efforts to track down Firehawk and the Dark Lord, since nobody would be here to access her terminal and call her."

She realized part-way through that Bearer might in fact be able to do those things, if the Dark Lord could not kill him as he claimed, but she was already mid-way saying it so she finished.

"Angel told me I'm in charge here and she did not make exception for you. You're going to come downstairs, explain to me everything that is going on, and stay the hell away from Sakura while you do it. Clear?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 01:51 PM
Now that the physical violence was directed towards him, Bearer looked very threatened.

"Yes! Of course, purple one!" he exclaimed, breaking away from her grasp then proclaiming, "Just keep the stupid one on a leash!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 01:55 PM
"I'll deal with her in my own way. You just do you exposition..."

Tracy paused.

"Once we get to that damn terminal. Come on."

She pushed Bearer in front of her, so she could watch him and make sure he didn't pull anything behind her back, while directing him toward the trap door into the shipment.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 01:57 PM
Upon reaching the trap door, since Jack had already carried Sakura down there, somehow, Bearer pulled it open himself, already knowing where it was and peered down.

"I do not like this part."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:00 PM
"Angel really needs a ladder here. Jump down." Tracy told him.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:01 PM
Sakura, still with Jack, was now silently fuming at not only being threatened and her integrity questioned, she wasn't exactly happy that her own cousin felt it was necessary to stun her like that.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:03 PM
Bearer clutched the Urn to his chest with both hands as though it were an infant, or perhaps something more important, like a football, and sat his chubby self down on the edge and slid off, falling onto his back in the least graceful fall possible. But he was okay, though rather sore as he stood up again gingerly and moved out of the way.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:07 PM
Tracy jumped down and landed on her legs, though her butt did hit the floor hard too. But, that aside, she was fine. Sooner or later somebody was going to a break a leg from this obvious safety hazard. She then urged Bearer to continue on.

***

"They do not believe in you." the voice suddenly echoed in Sakura's head.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:10 PM
Haven't really had a chance to prove myself to anyone... Sakura tried replying in her head. Unless you're going to say something to try and make me feel better... I don't want to hear it. I'm pretty sure you're aware of how worked up I am right now.

Sakura sighed and leaned against a nearby wall before glaring at Bearer. She didn't say anything however.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:12 PM
"Then you need to prove yourself. Have you yet had visions during sleep or mediation?" the voice inquired.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:14 PM
Bearer did so, though he wasn't sure where Tracy wanted him to go. He wasn't good with locating computers.

Said computer, oh by the way, Jack and Sakura had gone right past. They were nowhere near Bearer. They were in the midst of what used to be the Dark Sector. Tracy and Bearer were only a few yards from it. The blue screen was visible, though a bit obstructed by some boxes.

Unbeknownst to them, the hallway they came through to enter the Dark Sector closed a little ways behind them, in its place looking like a normal wall.

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:15 PM
Not that I know of... Sakura replied. Although I'm pretty sure that one dream was caused by a taco I had before bed. Feline warriors fighting humans... Don't know where that came from.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:21 PM
"Some forms of mystical energy can give glimpses into the future, the past, or the present, in other places or even the same place. Your energy is one that can. Perhaps, if you concentrate hard enough, you will be able to locate Eleanor through a vision... Begin meditating. I shall try to help you as you do."

***

Tracy groaned when she didn't see where Jack and Sakura had gone. But, Angel had pacified this place, so they couldn't be in any real danger. First thing's first. She went up to the terminal and found whatever button activated... stuff. Angel had never really given instructions on how it worked, so Tracy had to guess her way with it.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:30 PM
Once the button was pressed, the computer's interface went from a blue screen with a button to a combination of binary and some foreign language Tracy had never seen before that looked like various types of audio loops. She couldn't do anything else, so it must be time to call Angel.

***

While Sakura was busy not paying attention to her surroundings, if Jack was aware, he may notice the doorways, halls, etc around them close up into the wall, leaving only one exit open, a door at the end going down to a staircase.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:33 PM
Tracy pulled out her cell phone and speed-dialed Angel, then waited for a reply.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:34 PM
Again with the medit... Sakura's response was cut off as she looked around. "Jack... is it just me... or does something feel... off to you?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:36 PM
Angel, who was presumably still being led about by this military dude, picked up after a couple rings.

"You find the computer?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:40 PM
"I found the computer, tried to turn it on... and now it's... doing something." Tracy responded to Angel.

***

The voice went silent for a moment.

"I sense darkness around you... But I cannot intervene now. Remember, passions and emotions are good if channeled the right way. If you face threat of death, bear that in mind... And Sakura, even if the others don't... I believe in you."


The voice seemed to fade away with the last sentence.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:43 PM
I'd feel better kowing who I was dealing with... Sakura shot back as she looked around again. She brought her left arm up, and her Omni Tool came to life.
"Something's wrong..." she said, mostly to herself.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:52 PM
"Okay. I'm accessing the signal now," Angel replied, immediately opening up her communicator and accessing said computer and finding the signal, narrowing down its location, "It's coming from... ... the Everson Bridge..."

The Everson Bridge, previously unmentioned but obviously necessary bridge near the military's largest base, Fort Johnson, where Bray had his massacre of General McSweezy. Firehawk's signal was coming from the bridge that connected the Fort to the mainland.

Angel went into panic mode again, running ahead of the officer, using her senses to locate Karen.

"KAREN!" she screamed as loud as she could, "HE'S AT THE BRIDGE!"

The line was cut shortly after.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 02:53 PM
"Where are Tracy and the Father?" Jack asked, looking around to see if the trap door was still there.


Angel eventually found Karen, who promptly asked, "What bridge?"
Several soldiers and officers were gathering around wondering what the heck was going on and whether or not Angel was in need of pacification.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 02:54 PM
"Angel? Angel?" Tracy tried to get a response. Then she attempted to redial.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 02:56 PM
Sakura waved her Omni Tool around, scanning the area.
"Right now... Angel's father can take a flyin' leap at a rollin' donut for all I care," she deadpanned before trying to contact Tracy.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 02:56 PM
"The Everson Bridge! Firehawk is at the Everson Bridge!" Angel repeated her words, choosing not to pick up the line at the moment.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 03:02 PM
"They were supposed to meet us here..." Jack said, noticing the trap door now gone.


Karen quickly relayed the information that Firehawk and/or a demon were at the Everson Bridge. Of course the military's next step was to alert Fort Johnson of the incoming threat while scrambling a team to be sent in.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Tracy answered Sakura's call (?).

"Hello?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 03:04 PM
"Tracy? Where the hell are you?" Sakura asked as she continued scanning the room.

"At the computer console. Where'd you guys go?" Tracy replied.

"Not a clue..." Sakura replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 03:06 PM
The problem was they didn't know how long Firehawk had been there.

As it turned out, he'd been there since Remus told him to get on his way.

An eruption of hellfire shot up from the water underneath the Everson Bridge and split the behemoth where it stood, melting the tons of metal and concrete and boiling the water beneath as panicking motorists drove to their deaths off the edge of the bridge.



Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:08 PM
"Well, I've called Angel and stuff... now it's time to wait I guess. We'll come and find you. After you guys dropped down the trap door, where'd you go?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 03:11 PM
"Nowhere," Sakura responded. "Dropped in and waited as far as I know."

"Are you invisible or something? I didn't see you when we came in."

Sakura looked over at Jack.
"Don't think so..." she replied.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:14 PM
"What kin- Ung. We'll go back and check." Tracy muttered, motioning for Bearer to follow her back to the trap door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 03:14 PM
Bearer was gone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:22 PM
"Wh-..."

Tracy put her hand over the cell phone microphone and yelled out:

"HEY! ANGEL'S DAD!? WHERE'D YOU GO!?"

***

But since Fort Johnson was a fort, there weren't THAT many motorists on the bridge. Unless there were actual civilian attractions on the island for some reason...

In any case, troops blocked off the bridge quickly, while nearby gunboats proceeded around to try and pick up survivors. Not to mention search for whatever it was that destroyed the bridge. Helicopters were in the air soon as well.

"That damned son of a bitch..." Tracy cursed, looking around in circles.

Suddenly she felt very scared, even if she thought she knew the ship would be safe now. This just wasn't a good place to be alone. Pulling the gun Angel had given her off her back (since we assume it had a shoulder strap), Tracy proceeded back to the trapdoor entrance.

The trapdoor entrance that was 10 feet in the air. There was no possible way she could reach it this way.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:33 PM
But the point wasn't in getting out the trapdoor, it was in confirming that Jack and Sakura were indeed... not there.

"That nut who calls himself Angel's father has just flown the coop. I don't know where he's gone... And I'm here at the trapdoor and there is nobody here. Where the fuck did you guys get to?"

Someone at the Lucas Base got a military-wide communique stating the Everson Bridge had just been destroyed and all military forces to be on high alert for "potential follow-up terrorist activity".

And yes, the incident on the freeway earlier that day had been officially declared an act of terrorism by military representatives. Suspicion had been placed on a Brushland terrorist group that had been inactive for some time. But many people saw through it... even if they didn't want to.

Sakura did so, again stating that it was creepy.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:47 PM
Tracy began wandering down the path she'd taken the first time she'd been here, just because she figured she'd map out the familiar first.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 03:54 PM
The places looked different from the last time Tracy had been here. Maybe it was her mind playing tricks on her, or maybe it was a distinct lack of doors. The only path to go was down a direct flight of stairs heading straight down to a corridor.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 03:55 PM
With no other ways to go, Tracy followed said path.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 04:10 PM
The corridor at the bottom was dimly lit. Every exit there was closed too, except for the end, which was another staircase down.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:13 PM
Sakura motioned for Jack to follow.
"Tracy, I'm gonna see if I can meet up with you somewhere," she said. "I'll be mapping out as I go."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 04:19 PM
"Okay. For some reason all the doors are shut down here..." Tracy replied, proceeding down the path.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:20 PM
Sakura headed the only way she could.
"Yea... looks like the same situation here," she said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 04:38 PM
Jack followed.

The Raynes were somewhere doing something. As was Zin, but a different somewhere and something.

The military at Lucas base were in constant communication with Fort Johnson, trying to find out if anyone had a visual on the attackers or if they were still there or not.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 04:43 PM
No one was visible by the bridge...

But a bolt of flaming lightning appeared out of nowhere, too fast to track as it was, well, lightning, and struck one of the gunboats on the starboard side, lighting it ablaze and tearing a hole in its hull.

***

Angel was tracking FH still.

"He's still at the Bridge," she said.

***

Sakura and Jack's path went a continuous down, with an occasional short left, with a unanimous locked-in feeling.

Tracy's path was the reverse, down and an occasional right with the locked-in feeling.

Both paths gradually grew darker, and the sound began to fade away to the point where they heard  themselves breathe, and nothing else.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 04:44 PM
"Can you stop him?" Karen asked next - with military vehicles they could be at Johnson in under ten minutes, in Angel's jet, perhaps less.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:45 PM
Sakura was actively mapping the place as she went with her Omni Tool, but had also had a hand on the borrowed blaster.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 04:48 PM
One of the other gunboats pulled alongside to recover anyone from the damaged ship. Meanwhile, the military commanders ordered cameras and detection equipment brought in to try and find the source of the attacks.

On the mainland, Military Police were ushering people as far from the bridge as possible.

***

"You still there?" Tracy asked Sakura, still on the phone with her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:49 PM
"Yea," Sakura replied, also checking her Omni Tool. "Still following a staircase down, and finding nothing. You?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 04:51 PM
"Same situation. There is someone in here besides us..." Tracy replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:52 PM
"Who?" Sakura asked, hand again going to the blaster on her hip.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 04:53 PM
"Either Angel's FATHER, or somebody more sinister." Tracy replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 04:53 PM
"I think so," Angel replied, not looking up from her communicator, "The trick is getting there. If he is under the bridge like I think he is, he has a tactical advantage. We try and fly there, he could blow us out of the sky."

***

As the gunboats were switching personnel, both had their equipment suddenly report simultaneous hull breaches directly below, as did any other ships with identical or below grade of material in the blast radius of the bridge - the hull below sea level was melting away, like the poor souls who fell in the water, and said water was rushing into the ships.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:55 PM
For a moment, Sakura's thoughts turned to the mysterious voice that popped into her head every once in a while. Shaking her head, she focused on the situation at hand.
"So he's not with you?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 04:58 PM
The order soon went out the withdraw all the boats from the water in the surrounding area. Figuring something must be stirring up the water, the commanders ordered depth charges dropped down the epicenter of the boiling, which was presumably right below the center of the bridge.

The choppers moved into position to began dropping their payload.

***

"I told you he abandoned me." Tracy sighed, having very clearly told that to Sakura.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 04:59 PM
Sakura sighed and stopped for a moment.
"You get the feeling we're being played or something?" she asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:00 PM
"I stopped thinking we weren't a long time ago." Tracy replied, bitterness evident in her voice.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:02 PM
Finally continuing down the stairs, Sakura sighed again.
"Some days I wonder if anything we do actually means anything anymore..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:04 PM
Once the depth charges detonated, all seemed calm for a few minutes to the eyes of the bystanders. Though the boiling water remained, as the problem was on land covering itself behind a cluster of rocks.

Taking a moment to focus, Firehawk gathered his energy and unleashed another eruption of fire, this one more powerful than the first. Shooting the gap that was once the center of the bridge, the flames fanned out onto the land on either side and fell, setting everything they touched ablaze.

***

Just then, a door opened to Sakura and Jack's left.

Tracy still had some stairs to go down.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:05 PM
Sakura stopped and looked through the door.
"Ok... that's creepy..." Sakura said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:06 PM
With a loud bang, the stairs Sakura and Jack just walked down became inaccessible as blast panels slid shut, sealing them in with only one way to go.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 05:07 PM
"It's a trap." Jack stated what he deemed to be the obvious.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:07 PM
"What is?" Tracy asked, still walking forward.

***

Which was mostly just military vehicles and the roadblocks. The soldiers guarding them fled, if they hadn't been set on fire that is. But this time, unlike the lighting strike, the flame blast clearly had a source, which the choppers now zeroed in on.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:08 PM
"We just got cut off from the stairs," Sakura said. "Some kind of... blast door or something. No way I can cut through that or bypass it as far as I know."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 05:08 PM
"Are you not capable of teleportation?" Karen asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:12 PM
The flame blast, as stated before when the first one struck, came from the boiling water. Probably an indication of how the water got that way, right?

***

"How far away is Fort Johnson from here?" Angel rebounded, "Teleportation isn't just something you do without calculations."

***

Tracy noticed a door down the stairs to the right open.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:14 PM
Regardless, the choppers unloaded minigun fire and missiles into the water at that spot.

***

Raising her gun, while holding her cell phone to her face with her shoulder, Tracy cautiously entered that door...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:15 PM
The door slammed shut behind her. She was trapped in a room that was about the size of a coffin.

Sakura and Jack heard it shut. It was on the other side of the door that just opened for them.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:16 PM
Sakura ran ahead, using her Omni Tool as a light source.
"Tracy!" she called out.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:23 PM
The result was Tracy got smashed up against the gun, which she barely managed to turn sideways and avoid having it crush her shoulder (or worse) as the door pushed her against the wall. She still suffered several brushes and cuts across her face, upper torso and hands. She also dropped her phone, which bounced between the wall and her body all the way down to the floor. Tracy tried to bend down, but there wasn't much room to do so, and she couldn't quite reach it because her knees were hitting to walls as she bent down.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:24 PM
Sakura started looking around the room.
"Tracy! What happened?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:25 PM
There was no reply from Tracy right away.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:25 PM
The room Sakura was in was far too small for Jack to even stand in, if he was by himself, even. In fact, you might say it was about the size of a...

*BAM*

Whoops. There goes the door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 05:28 PM
Sakura tried pounding on the door, or anything for that matter. The light from her Omni Tool wasn't helping much right now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 05:30 PM
Turning around only seemed to make it impossible to determine which way she came from. The room was pitch-black, save for the omni-tool light.

Suddenly a panel behind Sakura, whom had turned, and in front of Tracy, slid open and exposed the cousins to each-other.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 05:32 PM
Tracy reached forward to grab at whatever was in front of her, not able to see obviously. Her gun clattered to the floor as she did, having been pressed against the wall and her body previously.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 06:10 PM
"Sakura?!" Jack immediately went for the door that had just closed and began trying to find a way to open it, presumably without any luck.

***

Karen brought up a map on her phone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 06:14 PM
Without any luck indeed.

***

Angel felt a little better about the prospect now.

"Alright. I'll see if I can find him," she said, checking his signal one last time before vanishing on the spot.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 06:15 PM
...

Karen was probably gonna get a lot of flak from the military for that.

Angel reappeared on the bank right on top of FH's signal as of five seconds ago, her Saber in her hand and ignited, expecting a full frontal clash. But the miniguns and explosions behind her rattled her for a split second, and that coupled with Firehawk seeming to know she was coming totally derailed her plan of attack.

Before she knew what had happened, her Saber had been kicked from her hand and into the boiling water, destroyed on the spot, and she had taken a hard straight punch to the jaw from the Man of Fire, a punch that was plenty hard enough even without 150 pounds of armor behind it.

Angel was flattened, stars in her eyes, as Firehawk stood over her, looking down at her with cold yellowed eyes.

"A noble attempt, sister," he shook his head, "But you have taught me well. Too well. I know you, and with the Prophecy behind me, and the Lord at my side, there will be nothing left by the time the Darkness falls on thou darkest hour."

He summoned his flamesabre to finish her off.

"Remus spoke of dignity, and that you earned such. I tend to agree. Your death will at the very least be painless by my hand."

As he swung for her chest, Angel's backup Saber came to life from her side and stopped him cold, while a telekinesis blast launched Leroy high up in the air. So high in fact he landed on the remnants of the bridge, which were still burning in places.

Angel stood up, rubbing her jaw and clenching her fist a few times to make sure both were functional. Satisfied, she leaped, with supernatural assistance, up to the bridge in pursuit.

Erika would have suggested a strategy idea to Angel, but Angel's author would rather ignore her existence, so she turned to Karen.
    "Is attacking Firehawk right now a good idea? He's the only one who can be tracked, right?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 06:49 PM
The sight of a being jumping onto the bridge caused a stir of chatter on the military radios as the choppers began to adjust toward the latest target. Unfortunately, sharpshooters in the guard towers of the fort were obstructed by the smoke from the flames, preventing them from getting a good look at the new target.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 06:50 PM
The second Angel landed on the bridge, she was met with a jet of flames to the face, which she half-blocked with her saber and half-absorbed with magic, which exploded into a blast of smoke, which was rather traumatic, more traumatic than it looked, and sent her to the ground again.

Once more, Firehawk was standing tall, this time with the inevitability of the military bearing down on them both.

Using logic for once, he teleported away inside a column of fire, hoping the Military would see it, come over, and find Angel and arrest her.

But Angel herself left as soon as she heard the flames. She knew she had lost, and badly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 06:52 PM
Just as that location of the bridge was pulverized.

"No sign of target." one of the pilots called in.

"Standby." was the reply, "We want to make sure..."

The choppers remained airborne, scouring the area below.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 06:53 PM
Karen was going to reply to that, when the officer interrupted. "We need to debrief you - and Angel." He cast a glare at Karen as he said that.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 06:54 PM
Erika ignored him. "If Firehawk is killed we won't be able to find the others. They will find us, and they already have too many advantages."

Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 07:07 PM
"He ambushed me right out of my exit. Engulfed me in flames. Quick, brutal, efficient. Did what I would do if I were him," Angel replied.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 07:29 PM
Behind her was a wide-eyed Tracy, with a bruised forehead and bloody lip.

"Sakura?"

After a long descent, the cousins landed hard in...

The graveyard.

They landed on top of a mound of dirt. Wet dirt. Fog was everywhere, and it was hard to see, even with the omni tool.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 07:42 PM

The only thing in sight was a shovel sticking out of the dirt up ahead. It stuck out amongst all the tombstones, and was particularly alluring to the Tracy.

The laughter stopped, and out from the grave came a mechanical hand, then a gray human one, as someone began to climb out. And shortly after, there stood the Lord of Darkness himself.

He raised a mechanical finger.

"Charmed," he spoke in the same mechanical voice.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 07:56 PM
Tracy wanted to pull the trigger and fire, but something about this man caused her to freeze in fear. It must be the returning trauma from the nightmare, because normally she'd fire at something she feared on instinct. She just stood there, mouth hanging open.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 07:57 PM
Sakura positioned herself between Tracy and the new arrival, pulling her Saber off her belt.

Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:01 PM
"You will no longer need those," the Lord spoke again, effortlessly summoning Tracy's SMG and Sakura's Saber, Omni Tool and blaster from them and to him, which he then tossed to the ground somewhere behind him, out of sight.

"Oh, you asked for a name, Missy?" he stared a hole through Sakura with his cold yellow eyes, "I... am the Lord... of Darkness."

"What do you want?"

"I? I only desire to understand the Marked before they die. Perhaps know why they did what they did. And if they're lucky, perhaps salvage something from their souls," the Lord said to Sakura.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:14 PM
Sakura pushed a bit on Tracy to tell her to back up a bit.
"And what's so special about us anyways?" Sakura asked, trying to spot her Saber.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:16 PM
"Why do you have to kill us?" Tracy asked softly, "We've done nothing to you..."


Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:19 PM
No luck.

"There is nothing special about you," the Lord clarified, disregarding Tracy, as though he took offense to both implications, "You're just like all the rest. Pawns in a King's game. I do not care if you are the descendent of the most rotten excuse for a Jedi to ever live, or if you are one of the few remaining transient-species, or whatever it is the Ministry reported on you. Kin or not, you have a choice - die, or convert!"

The Lord's hand shot to his side, where an ancient lightsaber was visibly attached to his belt.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:22 PM
"Now! Strike at him!" the voice suddenly called at Sakura, as she felt something channel power into her, though it wasn't much, it would be enough to make a play for her sword.

Tracy had started to back away, about to run, but slipped and fell on the dirt.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:23 PM
Sakura reached out to call her Saber back to her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:31 PM
The saber flew back into her hand. The infusion of power seemed only something that might last but a few moments, however.

"You only have one chance, attack or run!"
the voice urged.

Tracy scrambled back to her feet.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:35 PM
Not being confident in her swordsmanship to fight someone who was clearly stronger, Sakura decided on a different tactic.
"Tracy! Run!" she called out as she reached out with the Force to throw the nearby shovel into the enemy's face.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:37 PM
Her earlier bravery now long gone, the purplehead turned and ran.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:38 PM
The shovel was cut in half by the Lord's sword, as Sakura found herself hoisted into the air, unable to breathe, being choked out by the Force.

"I do not tolerate insolence," he growled.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:39 PM
Freaking out, Sakura lashed out with the Force herself, trying to break his hold on her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:42 PM
The move only angered the Lord further, as he tightened his grip.

"You are no Jedi..."

Content to let Tracy run away and torture Sakura to death, the Lord brought his lightsaber to his side, staying where he was, rage in his eyes.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:45 PM
Tracy turned part way and realized Sakura was not following. Suddenly faced with a choice, she realized it once he was done with Sakura he'd be after her next. And to live with the regret of letting your cousin and friend behind to die... better to die trying anyway.

The purple one did a 180 and charged at the Lord of Darkness, having no weapon with which to fight besides her body.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:45 PM
Help me! Sakura reached out to anyone who would listen.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 08:48 PM
Speaking of Jedi...
    Back at the dynamic duo's apartment complex, a bright yellow jeep pulled into the parking lot and a young woman stepped out. She had brown eyes, long ash blond hair and was tall, dressed in skinny jeans and tall boots that made her look even longer.
    She walked straight towards Erika's apartment and knocked on the door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 08:50 PM
Jasper took her feet off the desk, next to the computer screen displaying security feed. "Oi! Jinn!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:51 PM
The Lord, rather than cut her down, swung Sakura with the Force and smashed her into Tracy, sending both cousins flying, hitting a tombstone on the way down, but at least the Force was no longer constricting Sakura.

The Lord stayed where he was, glaring over at the two of them.

"Look at you," he said, "Pawns who think they can take down the King. That is not how this game we play works."

***

Jinn, who was sleeping on the job like any regular Jedi would do, perked up.

"Eh?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 08:51 PM
Some time later, the military at the Lucas Base had debriefed Angel, Karen, and Erika, and were formulating a plan to stop Firehawk and Remus. They still hadn't fully decided whether Angel was or would be a help or hindrance and whether or not they should just arrest her, but for now she was still with them for the planning phase.

***

Jasper pointed at the screen. "Guest."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 08:53 PM
The guest was pulling keys from her purse and letting herself in.

Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 08:55 PM
Don't think Angel didn't know that, either. She's accustomed to being watched at this point.

She was waiting for someone to suggest something, though she had a feeling, which she had said multiple times, that trying to meet them head on was going to end in disaster.

***

"Cool," Jinn remarked, sitting up properly, "Who is it?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 08:55 PM
Sakura gasped as she rolled off her cousin.
"Why?" she croaked. "Why come after us? We haven't done anything!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 08:56 PM
Tracy wanted to reply with something defiant, but the wind had been knocked out of her and she could say nothing. She only slowly tried to get her breath back, then help Sakura back to her feet if she wasn't back on hers already.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 08:56 PM
"Why did he attack Fort Johnson?" The officer asked Angel.


"Haven't the foggiest." Jasper replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:02 PM
The Lord paused.

"How are you still conscious?" was all he had to say.

***

Angel stared at the officer.

"You look at me as though I was an enemy war commander who defected to your cause," she said, "I have no possible way of knowing why he attacked Fort Johnson. The only answer I can give you is 'his Lord told him to.' And like I said, we know a collective nothing about his Lord, except that he's been plotting whatever he's doing today for a really long time."

***

"So now what?" Jinn asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 09:04 PM
"Maybe I'm just a stubborn Terran..." Sakura replied with a cough, remembering what Suki had said. She tried to push herself up, but couldn't.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 09:05 PM
"Yellow jeep. You check it out while I talk to... whoever 'she' is." Jasper replied, taking a bite out of a doughnut from the doughnut box that was on the desk.

***

"You know him better than anyone - and right now we have two options, use your tracker and hit him hard or lure him into a trap with something he wants - someone, by the sounds of it."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:07 PM
Tracy got to her knees but couldn't get up beyond that.

"Some chess player you are; wasting so much time on mere pawns." she coughed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:11 PM
"I will give you a final choice in life - convert, or die," the Lord stated with a dark intone.

***

"Alright."

Jinn stood up and headed for the parking lot.

***

Angel was stuck between a rock and a hard place.

"I think he is stronger than me," she said, "But I don't want to endanger innocent lives any more than necessary. But at the same time, if I die, the Lord wins..."

...

"We should find Eleanor. There is a magic within her. He will be drawn to it. Get to her, use her as bait. When he comes, we kill him."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:12 PM
"You... never... told us what to conver... convert to!" Tracy replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:17 PM
The Lord visibly recoiled slightly.

"You have had but a mere taste of the Darkness," he said, sounding very impatient, "The Ministry can offer you a wealth of knowledge and power - even eternal life."

Of course there was no way to know if that statement was true or not...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:18 PM
Tracy looked at Sakura.

"I'll go with you, whatever you pick." she told her softly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 09:19 PM
"The police are looking for her but right now they're stretched too thin for an effective search."

***

A few minutes later, there was a knock on Erika's door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 09:28 PM
There was a short silence, and then a Scottish accented voice said, "Hello?" The accent was like Erika's only clearer.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:31 PM
Jinn was sneakishly inspecting the Jeep.

"We should look for her ourselves," Angel said sharply, "Want it done right, do it yourself."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 09:32 PM
"I don't know..." Sakura finally said to Tracy in a weak voice. "We can't fight, and we can't run... "
She was spent thanks to being choked out. She closed her eyes.
"I don't know what to do anymore..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 09:33 PM
"Health inspector." Jasper said to the door.

***

"Planning on running us out there with flashlights or do you have a better idea?" The officer asked. Karen was just listening in a corner.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 09:34 PM
"For what?" The voice came again, sounding confused.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:34 PM
"Not helpful." Tracy deadpanned, though she actually smiled as she spoke, because at least Sakura was being herself, even to the end, "Will you follow me if I choose, then?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 09:36 PM
"Inspecting your health, ma'am. A complaint was filed against this apartment and I was dispatched."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:37 PM
"Carl Tate. Every database on this planet. Search it, find a residence, find a safehouse, find a relative, something. Start there," Angel replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 09:38 PM
Sakura just reached over and squeezed Tracy's arm a bit in response.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 09:40 PM
"My health or the apartment's health?"


The jeep was...yellow. Very yellow. There wasn't a lot inside it, and nothing out of the ordinary. An empty coffee cup sat in the cup holder by the driver's seat and the car's manual was in the glovebox under a box of peanuts. Other than that, it seemed to be clean and empty.




Erika rolled her eyes from the corner of the room.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:40 PM
Tracy quickly hugged Sakura, but let go after only a couple seconds. She then looked up at the Lord of Darkness.

"We're not going to be your pawns." she hissed defiantly at him.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 09:42 PM
Sakura took a deep breath.
I'm sorry Eleanor... please forgive me. she thought, fully expecting it to end now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 09:43 PM
"The apartment's, is how it usually works." Jasper the Health Inspector replied.


The officer snapped his fingers and ordered a couple subordinates to get on that. They had access to databases and resources that the police didn't. Speaking of police, Karen stepped away and gave a certain officer a call...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 09:44 PM
"Who filed the complaint?" The girl asked suspiciously. "The apartment rarely gets visitors."


Uriah answered his phone with his name.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 09:46 PM
"I wish I could have done more... but I am too far away." the voice whispered to Sakura.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 09:55 PM
The Lord stared at them both.

"It is settled then," he said, raising his saber and marching forward.

Until...

"LOOOOOOOORD of DAAAAAAAARKNESS!" a shrill, high-pitched voice echoed through the graveyard, as the Lord stopped in his tracks, "Stop right there!"

Bearer entered the scene from the other side of the graveyard, holding the Urn, Harrington turning to face him with a dark glare on his face.

"Leave the fools alone! They know not what they are into, my Lord!" Bearer yelled across the yard, feverishly stepping closer to the Lord, who stood his ground for now, "They are children in the eyes of Sting! The Prophecy does-"

"The Prophecy makes no discriminations!" the Lord fired back, totally ignoring Sakura and Tracy now, "The Darkness shall consume all once more. Philosopher Sting predicted it!"

"Sting predicted many things, Harrington!" Bearer shot at him, continuing his stride, "For all your knowledge and power with the Darkness, you have yet to consider the other scroll that escaped the fire!"

"There was no other scroll!"

Perhaps now was a good time to escape?

Tracy grabbed Sakura and yanked her to her feet, then started running, pulling Sakura with.

Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 09:58 PM
Sakura reached out to get the gear that was taken, but only managed her Omni Tool... barely. She clipped her Saber back on her belt and followed.

"Your team at the Rayne's home yet?" Karen asked.

"Your next door neighbors." Jasper replied as truthfully as possible, given the lie.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 10:04 PM
But Sakura's greed may have just cost her and Tracy their lives, as the Lord was obviously going to see something right in front of him move. He spun around, eyes fixed on the girls and cast a bolt of lightning at their feet, obliterating the ground they stood on and sending them into a hole.

A dark hole.

A grave.

***

Jinn deduced this was a normal Jeep, and went on back to the office.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 10:06 PM
Tracy screamed again as they tumbled into the hole. How deep it was is anyone's guess.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 10:08 PM
"Arriving now."






Erika's been making friends with the neighbors again. Typical. The girl sighed before answering."The tenant isn't home right now, come back later."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 10:09 PM
The Lord looked back at Bearer.

"I may not be able to kill you, Sorgi, but I can certainly crush these weaklings before you!" he snarled, stalking towards the hole.

"Lord!" Bearer called after him, chasing him, "Have mercy! They didn't mean it!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 10:12 PM
Tracy tried to get up and pull her way out of the grave, but how big it was is anyone's guess.

Oh yeah. It was uh... the size of a regular grave.

Sakura gave Tracy a boost.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 10:16 PM
Cliche six feet? We'll go with that.

Tracy started digging her fingers into the dirt, trying to get a grip. As she did so, she kicked her shoes and socks off and dug her toes into the dirt too.

And with Sakura helping, she managed to get over the top. After this she flipped around and lowered her hads to grab Sakura with.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 10:19 PM
As Tracy placed a hand on back inside to grab Sakura, Harrington stomped down on her left ankle, lightsaber pointed down at Sakura.

"I never get tired of the hunt!" the Lord exclaimed with what sounded like glee in his voice.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 10:20 PM
Suddenly a metal pipe struck the side of Harrington's head, extremely hard. Hard enough to send a human flying a few feet with their neck broken probably.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 10:21 PM
Tracy let out a cry of pain, as no doubt Harrington's foot was heavy.

There was a knock on the Rayne family door.

Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 10:27 PM
Harrington staggered off of Tracy's ankle, holding his head but not falling off his feet, his cybernetic enhancements keeping him in his head and not all over the floor like a normal human being.

He looked up to see... Jack.

"Ah... the 'big one' as Bearer calls you," he growled, shaking his head to clear the cobwebs, "Come to risk your life in futility to save theirs?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

After several seconds, it opened to reveal a bearded chiss man. He looked at the assembled military/police team expectantly.

***

"I'd give it if necessary." The pale alien replied, holding his pipe before him like a sword. While he wouldn't say it, he was seriously hoping the two girls would get their arses out of the pit as soon as possible.

"When will he be back?" Jasper asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 10:29 PM
Using what little energy she had left, Tracy heaved Sakura up over the side, at least half-way. Probably enough that she could work her way up the rest of the way.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 10:30 PM
Using her experience in tombs, Sakura climbed the rest of the way out and pulled Tracy to her feet and away from the fight.

"Mr. Rayne?" Uriah showed David his badge. "My name is Uriah Daniels. Me and my team are here for your protection." He motioned to the eleven other officers in the driveway.



He? "I'm not sure." The girl answered, wondering whose name was on the paperwork for this place.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

The Lord fired a bolt of lighting at Jack to test him.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 10:49 PM
Jack tried to dodge, but, ya know, lightning, and the bolt hit him square in the chest, throwing him backwards into the dirt. He was soon back up on his feet though, now with a bit of distance between him and the dark Lord.

...

"Alright. Sorry to have bothered you." Jasper returned to Jinn. "Drat it."

Tracy got up and ran too. While she didn't want to leave Jack, she realized he may have just sacrificed his life to save them, so she ran on.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 10:53 PM
The Lord was just fine with the two girls leaving now. They would remember, and spread their tale, and be hunted down later.

Dealing with Jack alone now, the Lord came at him with nothing but a lightsaber, deducing that if a bolt of lightning wasn't going to put him down outright, not much else in the Force department would.

***

Jinn was half-asleep again but perked up as the door shut behind Jasper.

"Ah! Eh? Oh. Learn anything?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 10:57 PM
"No. It's time to move to Plan B." Jasper replied ominously.

***

Quickly deducing that his metal pipe wouldn't be able to block a freaking lightsaber, Jack instead elected to dodge as best he could, ducking low under the first swing, sidestepping to avoid an uppercut, backing away. "RUN!" He yelled at the two cousins, knowing he couldn't keep this up for long.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:00 PM
And indeed he couldn't. His one-word shout was cut halfway through as Harrington struck Jack across the belly with his lightsaber deep enough to kill a normal man. Of course Jack wasn't a normal man.


"Plan B?" Jinn requested a reminder, as he may have been half-asleep.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:01 PM
They were already running. To where, only Jason knew. Hopefully it wasn't a meat packing plant or dark warehouse, because that would be too cliche '80s action movieish.

"Don't stop!" Tracy snapped at Sakura, grabbing her to make sure she kept running.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:04 PM
With a pained expression on her face, Sakura followed. There was nothing she could do for him, and she knew it.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 11:04 PM
Jack stumbled backwards, clutching his midsection with one hand, pipe in the other, barely staying on his feet. He raised the pipe feebly in defense - only to have it sliced in two by Harrington's saber, less than a second before the humming blade spun back around and impaled him. Jack's eyes went wide, looking at Sakura, then down at the ancient weapon being held in his gut.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:06 PM
Harrington was also looking at Sakura, who had, again, drawn attention to herself and Tracy.

Raising his lightsaber again, he started after them.

Tracy looked over her shoulder and saw the Dark Lord turn toward them. She quickly looked forward again.

"Must you always be such a fucking idiot?" Tracy let out at Sakura, exasperated by this.

Suddenly a blast of light struck the Dark Lord in the side, knocking him off his feet - Bearer had opened the Urn for a millisecond and released a portion of the power within to incapacitate Harrington.

"RUN!" he called after the girls, going with them himself.

Harrington was already starting to rise...

The three rounded the corner and found that the doors were unlocked now.

Convenient.

So they ran through the doors.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:18 PM
And found an elevator. A cargo elevator. It was quite large.

Bearer ushered them inside and pressed the highest level available, as the red glow was growing closer...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:19 PM
"Come on..." Sakura urged the lift.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:19 PM
"We just stepped into an elevator!" Tracy exclaimed, knowing what happens to elevators in movies.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 11:20 PM
Jasper's eyes moved side to side for a moment. "Uhhh... we've always got a plan B! Right?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:21 PM
The doors began to close as Harrington came into view. He reached out with his lightsaber just as they sealed shut and ascended.

Bearer let out a sigh of relief.

Jinn looked over his notes.

"No... do we have a Plan A Minus?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:22 PM
"I have a bad feeling about this." Tracy coughed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 11:23 PM
Yeah, 'cause elevator doors are bound to stop a lightsaber blade.

...

"Improv time." Jasper declared.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:24 PM
Sakura leaned against one of the walls and took a deep breath before glaring at Bearer.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:25 PM
Bearer was so out of breath it wasn't even funny.

Jinn knocked on Erika's door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:29 PM
Sakura continued to glare at Bearer.

"Yes?" The Scottish voice sounded mildly annoyed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:33 PM
Bearer leaned over to Tracy and whispered, still loud enough for Sakura to hear, "Why is The stupid one staring at me?"

***

"Hi," the friendly neighborhood criminally-adept Jedi said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 11:33 PM
...

"Hi..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:36 PM
Tracy slowly looked over at Bearer, looking a little more than furious.

"You left me completely alone... for no good reason. WHY?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:38 PM
"You bastard..." she growled darkly before she suddenly pinned him against the wall. "This is your damn fault!"
If Bearer wasn't aware of how close Sakura had come to the Dark Side before, he was now as he had a very good view of her affected eye.
"You threatened to bring him here... You abandonded Tracy... and guess who showed up?! Now Jack is dead... and its YOUR FAULT!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:41 PM
"We're tourists," Jinn explained, "We've been spun around on the Transit System for several days now, and today with all these weird things happening on the freeways we can't get to where we need to go."

***

Bearer raised the Urn to where his head was, buying himself a little breathing space.

"I did not summon him. YOU did! The Lord of Darkness makes his living down in that graveyard!" he snapped at Sakura, "When he is not there, he has an eye on it! What were you thinking going into its depths?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:42 PM
"IT WASN'T BY CHOICE!" Sakura shot back.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 11:42 PM
"Okay..." She said slowly, then opened the door a crack. "Do you need to use a phone or something?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:43 PM
Tracy grabbed Sakura by the throat and pushed her back.

"I want to know why the hell you disappeared!" she snapped at Bearer, not even looking at Sakura as she handled her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 19 2014, 11:44 PM
"He set us up," Sakura spat, sounding uncharacteristically hostile.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:45 PM
"The Urn spoke to me!" Bearer stated, "The Urn is not to be ignored, and it requires a place of peace to be focused upon! And if I had set you up, why would I have just saved your lives?!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 11:46 PM
Jasper locked her elbow around Jinn's in an affectionate manner just before the door opened. Now they looked like a couple, sort of. "Ah yes, that would be lovely." Jasper said with a warm smile and a pretty good French accent, "And if we could come in a moment - it's freezing out here."

The woman noticed Jasper was wearing a short sleeved T-shirt for some reason. Clearly not winter-wear.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:49 PM
Jinn gave Jasper the evil eye as soon as the woman turned her back, if she would do so.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 19 2014, 11:50 PM
She did not turn her back. Now that they could see her in person and not just in grainy security footage, they could see that she looked very young. Maybe not even an adult yet.
    She looked them over for a moment before nodding and opening the door wider and stepping back, letting them in. "Sure."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 19 2014, 11:53 PM
"That POT spoke to you!?" Tracy exclaimed.

She finally turned at looked at Sakura.

"The pot spoke to him." she said in a calmer, but mocking tone, "The fucking pot spoke to him."

She turned back and socked Bearer in the gut. Not particularly hard, but hopefully enough to wind him for a moment.

"You stick together in times like this! If you hadn't left me, this wouldn't have happend!" she growled, voice nearly failing, "But at least you showed up with needed... which brings me to..."

Tracy turned around and looked at Sakura a second time, still holding her back by the throat.

"WHAT THE FUCK, SAKURA!?" she shrieked, basically losing the last of her voice in the process, everything after that was a whisper.

"You had to save your damn toy... Jack would be alive if you'd have just run like you were supposed to, but no... you had to play magic to get the glowy toy. Why? Why?" she screeched, tears starting to well-up in her eyes, even though they still bore intense fury.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 19 2014, 11:56 PM
"Aw, thank you miss...?" Jasper inquired upon the girl's name as she stepped in with Jinn, while using the Force to try and get some kind of reading on her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 19 2014, 11:57 PM
Jinn was also trying to get a reading on her, and stood by Jasper for the moment.

***

Bearer shrunk down to the floor, a meager punch having a big impact on him.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 12:01 AM
"I tried for your gun too!" Sakura retorted. "I..."
The anger that was on her face was replaced with sadness and she just leaned against the wall and slid down to the floor.
"I... just wasn't... strong enough..."
She closed her eyes, trying to hold back tears of her own.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 12:03 AM
"Lauren." She answered. There appeared to be no Kaiju in the area around her, but she didn't guard her emotions very well. She seemed a little nervous about letting strangers in, but wasn't about to kick them out either. She'd apparently let them in with the same sentiments people let wet stray puppies in; they don't really want them stinking up the place or poking around, but they'd never be able to leave them stranded, either.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:03 AM
"Sakura." Tracy choked, "You should not have gone for anything... you should have run."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 12:09 AM
"Would it have really mattered?" Sakura asked. "We were just attacked in what was supposed to be a safe place. Not only that... Angel's house is right on top of his damn base! How the hell do we deal with that?!"
She was emotionally all over the place. She turned away from Tracy.
"If we're not safe here... then where can we go?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:11 AM
"I don't know..." Tracy sighed, "I don't know..."

The elevator finally reached the "top" floor.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 12:12 AM
"This place," Bearer spoke up, "That place. A biome. Artificially-generated landmass. The Lord rules it. Angel does not know. This is her ship we are traveling through."

And the doors opened.

Revealing a cargo bay near a set of massive interstellar engines, proving Bearer's point.

"Ah, pleased to meet you Lauren, I am Jacqueline, and zhis is my darling husband Jeff." Jasper replied, keeping up the French accent.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 12:15 AM
Some of Sakura's anger returned, and she glared at Bearer.
"She will as soon as we contact her," she growled before getting to her feet.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:15 AM
"Damn." Tracy squeaked at the sight of the engines.

She meant it in the "wow" sort of way of course. But then again, who knows for certain? In any case, she stepped out of the elevator and looked at Bearer.

"Now where do we go to get out of here?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 12:19 AM
"A pleasure..." Jinn introduced his new alter-ego, doing his darndest not to give Jasper the evil eye for real this time.

***

There was a personnel elevator right next to the cargo elevator.

"That elevator," he said, then said to Sakura, "Inform her if you wish, but there is nothing anyone can do. This is one of his hundreds of hiding spots. Bringing it to light will only ensure his wrath further."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 12:20 AM
"Hi, Jacqueline. Hi, Jeff." Lauren said, fishing her cell phone out of her pocket and handing it to Jasper. "Here, you can borrow this." The phone, like her car, was bright yellow.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:21 AM
"It would be stupid not to tell her." Tracy wheezed, then pulled Sakura onto the other elevator, "Com'n." she urged Bearer.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 12:22 AM
"And not saying anything pretty much guarantees that he'll have another shot at us in what she thinks is a safe zone, placing us in danger... again!" Sakura snapped.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 12:25 AM
Bearer followed, and up the other elevator they went.

...

"The Urn. It has been in my family since the beginning," he started to say, "Its power is ancient. Destined to be consumed, to destroy, unlock. To realize. The Lord has been after this for all these years, and he is closer to it now than ever before. I must safeguard its power."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 12:26 AM
"Ah, bless you." Jasper replied as she accepted the phone. Then she promptly handed it off to Jinn, "Actually, if you do not mind, where might the facilities be located?" She asked Lauren.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:26 AM
"Why can't you just destroy it? So nobody can abuse that power?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 12:27 AM
"Down the hall, first door on the left." Lauren pointed the way.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 12:28 AM
"Thank you." Jasper stood on her tip-toes and gave Jinn a quick peck on the cheek - no doubt to his great annoyance - before disappearing down the hall. "Won't be a minute!"
Yeah she totally ditched the whole subtle interrogation thing on him, least for now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 12:31 AM
"The power is too dangerous to be destroyed. It will be released into the world. A mixture of the Light and the Dark together is too strong and too volatile to be trusted. With each passing day, more of it is taken from the environment and passed into the Urn. The Urn must be destroyed, but the power passed into a sentient."

***

Oh yeah. Great annoyance. He was wondering if she was enjoying this a little too much...

"She's got the number on her, I don't," Jinn said, "So, you been here long?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 12:31 AM
"And if the sentient is destroyed?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 12:32 AM
"Just got here." Lauren answered. "About ten minutes ago."

Sakura remained silent, as she was still liable to bite his head off in her current state.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:07 AM
"The power is destroyed with it. The Lord cannot achieve victory. If he continues at this pace someone will get to my daughter, kill her, and then I will fall, and the Urn will be vulnerable. I must prevent this. The power must be taken from the Urn, from me. Passed on to the next generation."

***

"You have any friends?" Jinn asked, "I'm stuck with that elf."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 01:10 AM
"And the fact he tried to recruit us before trying to kill us doesn't factor into your perfect little formula?" Sakura growled. "He's not just after that pot, he's after people as well."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 01:12 AM
"Wait a minute... if the power can be destroyed once passed into a sentient, why not pass it into a ramdon sentient and destroy that sentient? Then the power is gone and the Dark Lord can't win." Tracy suggested.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:12 AM
"'That elf?'" Lauren sounded affronted. "'That elf,' sir, is your wife. You stuck yourself with her."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:15 AM
"Do you see why I call her The stupid one yet?" Bearer asked Tracy rhetorically, "She has to know that this is the name man who stole my previous children from me, and sentenced the third to death at the hands of a Demon, right? Or has she already forgotten that?"

He decided to not respond to Tracy's suggestion yet.

***

"I know, I know. She's my partner. We're like the old married couple you see at the nursing home, throwing jabs at each other in the name of a good laugh," Jinn tried to cover his tracks... and to some extent he told the truth.

"You see any creepy people around here, by the way?" Jinn threw another question, "We saw this dude the other day who had this big cat following him around everywhere. Not some house cat, either. Like a wild, exotic cat. Real creepy, ya know?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:19 AM
"Not really...But I don't live here." Lauren shrugged. "I had a pet raccoon once."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 01:20 AM
"I'm sorry for being a young human and not some long lived being!" Sakura shot back. "And I'm sorry if I don't share your priorities, especially after Tracy and I came this close to dieing!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:21 AM
Jinn stopped his line of questioning for just a moment to ask a legit question.

"What's a raccoon?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:21 AM
"Um...Grey animal. Claws. Bushy tail. Markings like a mask on its face." Lauren explained.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:25 AM
...

"They musn't live in the desert... hm... anyway, you've got someone to look after you, right? Like, the owner of this place or someone? You said you knew her, or am I going senile?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:26 AM
"Well, I am in her apartment." Lauren said. "It'd be weird if I didn't know her. I try not to break into strangers' homes."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:28 AM
"You raise a valid point," Jinn admitted, then pulled out his 'pocketwatch' and looked at it. It was not working.

"Yup. Still broken."

He looked at his watch on his wrist.

"She's been in there a while... hope she's alright..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:30 AM
Well, Lauren wasn't about to go check now was she? She stood there in an awkward silence.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:33 AM
Neither was Jinn...

For a multitude of reasons.

...

"I'm sure she's fine."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:34 AM
"Yeah, probably." Lauren said immediately.

...

"Want some food? There's pizza in the fridge."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:35 AM
...

"Sure."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:37 AM
Lauren went to the fridge and got out a box of pizza with the Greasy Pizza logo on it. She didn't bother to get plates, just opened the box to reveal an almost whole pepperoni pizza. "Help yourself."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:38 AM
Jinn did so, taking a single slice out of the box, presuming it wasn't poisoned since there was some of it missing. He also didn't mind cold pizza, and he was rather hungry.

"Good stuff. Best in town," he said after swallowing the first bite.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:40 AM
"So you've had it before?" Lauren asked, getting a piece for herself. "What other pizza places have you been to? Any other good ones? I haven't explored the area much yet."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:47 AM
Jinn felt legitimately bad for this girl. He knew, or thought he knew, what was coming in the form of an associate of a Sith Lord finding out about all of this, and taking her out to the garden like in Garden Wars - Paramedic Edition - 3-D.

"I've been to a couple others. That place in the Mall. Pizza Hut they call it. Intercontinental chain. The other is Pizza Place, also intercontinental. They do their best in the small towns away from here. Pretty bad here."

He took another bite.

"Dunno how far this one goes. Haven't seen it very much."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 01:50 AM
Lauren shrugged. "I think it's pretty new. I've only heard of the one store." She paused to chew and swallow another bite. "Any other places around here worth visiting?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:56 AM
"The Mall, for one. Got everything in there. You name it, they got it. The History Museum. Read up on the Battle, see some artifacts, ya know, history stuff. Central Park. Beautiful place to walk, though not this time of year. Personally though..."

He lowered his slice a bit before he spoke.

"I'd try to lay low for awhile if ya know what I'm saying. There's a lot of crazy stuff going on out there. Radio's been blowing up all day about terrorists attacking the interstate, some police station, and even the Everson Bridge."

Of course, Jinn believed the "terrorist" attacks were the work of the Sith, and he was going to bring this up with Jasper later, but now wasn't the time.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 02:01 AM
Lauren nodded. "I know. I came to visit Erika a few days ago. She sent me a text today, telling me to leave town. The traffic was so bad I couldn't get out, so I just came back here. I'll probably be fine; I doubt terrorists will target this building."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:07 AM
That instantly aroused Jinn's suspicion, but he didn't let it show.

"Let's hope not," he said, memorizing the name "Erika", "There's so much destruction and death these days... I'd say our ancestors would be sick, but, well, couple hundred years ago it was pretty much the same thing. Few bad seeds stirring up trouble and the walls come down."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 02:13 AM
"Aye." Lauren agreed. "But there are always a few good seeds around to squish the wee buggers."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:15 AM
Jinn smiled briefly.

"You're very world-smart for someone so young. Maybe this world does have a chance."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 02:24 AM
Lauren smiled back, then attempted to change the subject to something more cheerful than terrorists. "I may be world-smart but I'm not very world-traveled. You said you were a tourist; where are you guys from?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 07:26 AM
"Your opinion of Sakura is irrelevant to me. I want you to answer my question." Tracy replied to Bearer, still struggling to get each word out.

The elevator finally reached its destination.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 01:48 PM
Bearer sighed.

"The power is dangerous, and there are very few in this world who have the capability to wield it," he said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:12 PM
"Do you mean wield as in use it, or just possess it?" Tracy asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"Possess," Bearer clarified.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:22 PM
"Oh..." Tracy muttered, leading them out of the elevator and into wherever they were next.

Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:23 PM
They were on the top level of the ship. The two girls should know the area decently by now, at least this part. This was around the trap door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:26 PM
Dragging both people with her, Tracy brought them back to said trap door and stopped.

"How do you always manage to get out of here?" Tracy asked Bearer.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:27 PM

Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:32 PM
"Rope. Once. And it isn't there now. Now get us out of here." Tracy snapped. Or would've, if she had a voice to snap with.

Bearer stared up at the darkness where he knew the trapdoor to be, then looked over at Tracy.

"I can't."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:39 PM
"You've got to be fucking kidding me." she coughed, "Well... find something to get us out of here! Before the Dark Lord catches up!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:41 PM
Bearer looked around in an induced panic for a moment or two, then he spied the crates obstructing the formerly blue screen.

"What about those?" he pointed at them.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:42 PM
"Good enough."

Tracy ran over and started moving the crates.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 02:43 PM
Sakura looked over at them.
"Maybe..." she said. "If we can keep it stable and there's enough to reach that high."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:47 PM
"Not wasting the time to think. Just do it." Tracy retorted, already trying to shove one of the crates toward the area under the trap door.

"Really wish I was a guy again right now..." she thought, as the crates were heavy for her to push alone. She was really feeling like everything was always conspiring against her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:47 PM
"You have a better idea, Lord-Bait?" Bearer snapped at Sakura, going over to assist Tracy, though he wasn't much assistance as he had virtually no strength of his own.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 02:49 PM
Sakura moved to help Tracy.
"Yea... shut your trap already!" she snapped at Bearer. "You've caused enough trouble for one day."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:50 PM
"I've caused enough trouble?" Bearer repeated, clearly in disbelief at her words, "You are unbelievable! Why does my daughter associate herself with you?!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:50 PM
"Shut up, both of you." Tracy hissed, as she managed to get the first crate moved.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:52 PM
Bearer bit his tongue for the moment, going with Tracy to the next crate.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 02:53 PM
Sakura bit back a retort as she worked on adjusting the first crate's position a bit before helping with the second.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:55 PM
After working on it a few minutes, they got the crates into position. Tracy urged Sakura to climb up first.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 02:56 PM
Sakura did so, making her way towards the trap door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 02:57 PM
The trap door did not move, staying where it was.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 02:58 PM
"Try to pull it open!" Tracy called up.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 02:59 PM
"If this thing doesn't work... I'm cutting my way through..." Sakura growled as she tried again, this time pulling.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:00 PM
The trap door doesn't pull open from down. It is pushed, so nothing happened except some resistance, indicating just that.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:02 PM
Sakura pushed with some force, venting her anger in the process.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:03 PM
The door swung open, revealing the bottom level of the Mansion.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:04 PM
Sakura climbed out and waited for Tracy.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:05 PM
Tracy helped Bearer up the crates next.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:07 PM
Bearer was a little heavy, but they must have managed, and out the trapdoor he went.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:08 PM
Tracy came up last, relying on the others to help pull her out. Presuming she made it, she stumbled to her feet and sighed.

"We gotta get as far away from here as we can." Tracy puffed, "I'll go get my car keys, you guys get outside."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:09 PM
Sakura nodded, shot a glare at Bearer, then made her way to the front door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:11 PM
"The Lord..." Bearer wheezed, out of breath again, "Cannot enter the upper levels... the drones... they will kill him... we're... safe up here..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:12 PM
"We don't know that," Sakura countered, turning around.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:13 PM
"Do you really expect me to trust you?" the resident purplehead said with a glare, "I don't care what you do from here on out, but Sakura and I are leaving."

With that, she turned and headed for the stairs to get up to her room.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:14 PM
"If he could come up here, Angel would have died... long ago," Bearer growled, then pointed at Tracy, "And you would have, too. Leave if you wish. I must stay. But Angel will return."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:16 PM
Sakura just turned to head for the door.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:17 PM
Bearer headed the opposite direction.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:17 PM
Tracy ignored him and proceeded to her room. She recovered her keys, a couple coats, her invisi-watch and her 9mm. She then came back downstairs and gave one of the coats to Sakura, then put her boots on over her dirt-covered feet.

"Go warm it up." Tracy told Sakura, handing her the keys, "I'll be right there."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:18 PM
Sakura slipped the coat on and nodded for Tracy to go ahead before hesitating...
"Which one was yours again?" she asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:21 PM
"The grey car." Tracy replied.

She then wandered to the nearest phone and dialed Angel's cell number, praying for a response.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:22 PM
Sakura went outside, found Tracy's car, and worked on starting it up.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:23 PM
Her prayers were answered.

"Yes?" Angel picked up, with some voices in the background - she was still at Lucas Base.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:24 PM
"Angel... he's here." Tracy croaked.

Between the strained voice and panting, Angel could tell Tracy had just been run through the mill.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:27 PM
...

"What happened? Are you okay? Where are Sakura and Jack?" Angel asked in a normal tone, though she was deeply concerned on the inside.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:29 PM
"Sakura is okay... Jack... Jack's dead. The Dark Lord guy attacked us down there and we barely made it out. We're gunna get out of here... I don't know where we're going yet." Tracy replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:34 PM
"Drop Sakura off at the Rayne's. Come to Lucas Military Base," Angel said, still normal-sounding, "We're going to need your account of everything that happened."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:35 PM
"Okay." Tracy replied, "I'll... I'll be there. See you soon, I hope."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 03:38 PM
"Take care."

*Click*

"Karen?"

Angel got Karen's attention, as she did not know the officer's name yet.

"We've got a confirmed encounter with the Lord of Darkness. One casualty; Jack, the alien. He's one of the Marked."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:40 PM
Tracy then went outside and took up driver's position in her car. She then set off for the Rayne's house, not saying a word to Sakura as she did. In the light now, the two could get a better look at each-other's conditions, which probably weren't pretty.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 03:42 PM
Sakura was rubbing her face around her eye. She was a bit calmer now, but looked like she just came from a warzone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 03:50 PM
Tracy just tried to stay focused on the road and not crash or fall asleep or something. Soon enough they arrived at the Rayne's house. The house presumably had a number of law enforcement or military vehicles parked in front of it, prompting Tracy in her illogical state of mind to suspect the worst. Once parked, she got out and walked with Sakura (who she would have told to get out if she didn't know to get out) up to the door and knocked.

"I'm from the desert," Jinn replied honestly, no harm in saying that much, "Not a lot to do out there 'cept sweat, drive, conserve energy, and sweat some more."

Jinn's face went blank as he said, staring at the wall, totally off-topic;

"I am also angry at enclosed spaces..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 04:54 PM
"Uh...Claustrophobic?" Lauren asked. "Erika used to be claustrophobic, so she locked herself in the attic for three days."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 04:56 PM
"Afraid of nothing," Jinn phrased his own case of the phobia, "Literally."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 04:57 PM
"So..." Lauren said slowly. "You're afraid of empty spaces?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 04:58 PM
"Can't stand 'em," Jinn affirmed, "Can't be in 'em, can't look at 'em, can't even know they're there."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 05:08 PM
"Oh. Well, you probably shouldn't go past this room then." Lauren advised.


Uriah answered the door and let them in, not bothering to take Tracy's gun.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 05:09 PM
"Is everything alright here?" Tracy asked worriedly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 05:11 PM
...

"I just knew you were going to say that, somehow..." Jinn muttered.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 05:14 PM
"Tracy?" Marissa came into view around a corner. The whole family was in the living room.



"Where?" Karen asked, then the officer asked the same question immediately afterwards.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 05:16 PM
Sakura looked over at Marissa for a moment before closing her eyes and taking a deep breath.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 05:17 PM
"All she said was 'down there.' I think I know where it is, but we need to be sure. She'll be here soon," Angel replied, then added a bit of secondary information, "Tracy McLintock. She's on her way here."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 05:19 PM
"Hi. Angel said to leave Sakura here for now. So... here she is." Tracy squeaked in response, not letting Uriah reply as Marissa had interrupted and effectively alleviated her worries anyway.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 05:50 PM
"Is everything okay?" Was Marissa's next question.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 05:51 PM
"Does it look that way?" Tracy asked, as if her bloodied and bruised face didn't answer that question, "I gotta go, you guys stay safe."

Tracy turned to leave at that.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 05:58 PM
Marissa hoped Sakura would explain things.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 06:09 PM
Uriah had a feeling she wouldn't.



Lauren had nothing to say to that, so she just ate pizza.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 06:15 PM
"Not everyone made it out..." Sakura sighed. "Jack... he... didn't make it..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 06:21 PM
Since nobody stopped her, Tracy left and drove off to find the military base. It'd be a while before she got there though.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 06:23 PM
"Oh... I... I'm so sorry..." Marissa ushered Sakura into the living room where the rest of the Raynes were. "How did it happen?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 06:27 PM
"I... I don't know..." Sakura admitted. "We got seperated going down into the basement somehow... then maybe we were tricked down a particular path that went deeper... and... he appeared."
She walked over towards the couch and braced herself against it.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 06:28 PM
"He...? Firehawk?" Marissa asked, while her family listened quietly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 06:34 PM
"No... worse... the guy pulling the strings," Sakura replied. "He... he wanted us to join him or die. I... I wasn't strong enough, and he was going to kill us."
She closed her eyes.
"Angel's father showed up, they argued, we tried to escape and he caught us... then Jack showed up and..."
Sakura shook her head.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 06:38 PM
While Marissa didn't actually know Jack all that well, he seemed like a pretty good guy, and the news along with the combined stress of the day had her tearing up. She pulled Sakura into a hug.

"Where... was this?" Kyle asked softly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 06:39 PM
"Under Angel's basement," Sakura replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 06:41 PM
Aaaaand skipping ahead a little...

Tracy arrived at the gates of the base.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 06:42 PM
"God dammit." Kyle swore, looking away. "Never should've gone down there..." He'd halfheartedly tried to warn Angel about it earlier but was disregarded. He'd trusted Angel's judgement - now he only wished he'd tried harder.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 06:46 PM
And after getting clearance and stuff, Tracy was brought before Angel and Karen. Outside of a slight wave, she didn't verbally greet them. She didn't want to talk more than necessary.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 06:48 PM
And Erika. Erika was there too.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 06:49 PM
Someone Tracy didn't recognize gave the whole, "I know you've been through a lot but we need you to tell us everything you remember..." speech.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 06:50 PM
Angel didn't greet her at all. She was in all-business mode at the moment, just looked at her expectantly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 06:55 PM
Sakura again closed her eyes.
"I... don't know what to do anymore..." she said. Her confidence was shot right now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 06:55 PM
Tracy sighed and began to explain everything that happened, in the best detail she could. She had to backtrack a few times to make sure she didn't miss a details. She also mentioned manhandling Sakura and Bearer, though not how far she went. Outside of not going into detail on that, she got the rest of the story through.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 07:03 PM
Jasper finally emerged from the bathroom and approached the other two.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 07:05 PM
Angel was, understandably, fuming a little bit after the end.

"So you're telling me... my Father knew that this 'Lord' had a hideaway in some 'graveyard' that I didn't know I had down in my ship in an 'Earth Biome' that used to be a preservatory?!" she recounted in almost disbelief, "And you and Sakura somehow were separated and manipulated down the entire length of the ship and into this 'graveyard', while Father was nowhere to be found, only to come in at the very end and save your lives, seconds after Jack had been murdered?"

She looked at Tracy's physical state and sensed her emotional state, and said only, "I knew I shouldn't have left you three alone..." then stepped back for a moment to process all of this.



Jinn and Lauren were eating pizza.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 07:10 PM
"Before Jack intervened." Tracy corrected, "Your FATHER distracted him for a moment, then Sakura did something stupid and drew his attention back to us. Jack came in and attacked him to buy us another chance to escape... But, yes, that's about it."

Her calm voice at the moment betrayed a lot of different emotions that were bubbling up inside as she recounted the story. Fury, bitterness, sadness, fear, despair...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 07:14 PM
Angel pressed a hand to her head.

"The whole reason I sent Sakura there was so you and Jack could look after her and prevent something like that from happening," she admitted, "I had no way of knowing. But Father..."

Her expression turned a little dark.

"You said he's still there? I think I should pay him a little visit, don't you agree?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 07:18 PM
"Not by yourself you're not." The military man said firmly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 07:18 PM
"I want to be there." Tracy stated.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 07:20 PM
    There was a TV on displaying the news in the Rayne's living room, at very low volume, in the corner. It was, of course, covering the police station explosion, the hospital melting, and the freeway chaos. While hugging Sakura, Marissa found herself looking at the screen, though not really watching. She began to pull back from Sakura and look away when something caught her eye on the screen. While the video feed was of the freeway, text was running along the bottom of the screen, death tolls, injuries, car accidents... and one line in particular which soon disappeared:
    "CEO of Joyce Enterprises Walter Lyle found dead near home, police suspect suicide."
    She froze and experienced a sudden sickening feeling in her gut. She'd killed that man in a dream this morning- wait, no, she saw Zin kill him in a dream this morning. The memory was warped already, but it was there. She'd tried to brush it off as just a dream, and it had worked, she had forgotten it thanks to the day's events till now... but there he was, dead on the news. She told herself it was just a coincidence, but knew it wasn't. But if that part was true, what about the things said about her FATHER?

"Pizza? This up for grabs?" Jasper asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 07:23 PM
"He'll flee if he sees armed personnel. I don't know how he does it, but he just vanishes when you're not looking at him," Angel said to the military man, "I've got an idea, though. You have a wireless transmitter, right?"

She was of course speaking of a covert op of sorts.

"You sure you should be eating? You were in there a long time," Jinn feigned a convincing worried tone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 07:25 PM
"Positive dearest, I'm starved." Jasper replied, picking up a piece, apparently not waiting for Lauren's permission. Not that that was intentional, Jasper just had a hard time not-eating food sometimes.

***

The officer glared at Angel. "Yes..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 07:29 PM
Angel did not return the glare.

"Put one on me, keep a team outside. I'll record everything that is said. If anything goes haywire, you're right there to deal with it. When it's over, we take my Father into custody. Keep someone on him, find out everything he didn't tell me and won't tell me after today," she said calmly.

Jinn stared at Jasper, wondering if she was even trying to hold cover at this point.

As soon as she was able too, Sakura found an unoccupied seat and took it. After a minute she pulled her Saber off her belt and just looked at it before taking hold with both hands and closing her eyes.

Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 07:36 PM
"I don't want you anywhere near Father," Angel said to Tracy in the same calm voice, "This is a subtle interrogation, not a hostile takeover."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 07:39 PM
Marissa was brought back to the present as she felt a hand on her shoulder. She looked back to see her FATHER. She gave him an odd look, unsure what to think, but feeling very worried for him all of the sudden. It was a look which he misinterpreted of course, having no way of knowing what weird things she was thinking about.
    "It'll be alright."
    Marissa just sniffed deeply an wiped her nose with the back of her hand while nodding. She needed to do something soon before going insane...

    Samantha sat down beside Sakura, wondering if she needed someone to talk to.


The officer reluctantly agreed and began making the necessary arrangements, including the transmitters.

"Want to talk about it?" Samantha asked the part time archaeologist.

"And I don't like my friends being in the line of -... your watch," Angel remembered, "You can come in that way. But only as long as you promise me not to take off the effect. If Father somehow has a gun to my head, don't take it off. Let it play out. I know how to deal with Father. Only take it off if someone or something else comes in."

"Fine, we'll do it that way." Tracy agreed with a nod.

Now she just waited for the signal to disappear.

Angel waited for the military officer, who still had no name and to this point had not been addressed directly by anybody and only spoken to in replies, to inform them when they were leaving.

...

"Do you have a name, a rank, a title, or something?" she asked said officer, looking for a badge or a nameplate, "It's really awkward not to be able address someone and only be able to say something in response to them, ya know?"

"I... I don't even know where to start..." Sakura replied. "I... death has always been a... problem for me..."
She dropped her Saber and brought her hands up to her head.

"Warrant Officer Sir, Ma'am." The officer replied.

"It's never easy losing someone close to you." Samantha replied softly.

"No... it isn't," Sakura replied. "Third time's not the charm either..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 08:16 PM
Angel wished she hadn't asked.

"Okay..."

She sat down somewhere and started doing... something... on her communicator.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 08:23 PM
"Everyone deals with it differently. I lost my step sister when I was a little younger than you are now - the hurt never fully goes away, but it does lessen in time. I hope she's gone to a better place." Samantha replied.


Officer Sir got back to doing officer things.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 08:42 PM
Sakura looked over at Samantha again. She knew what it was like to lose someone, and knowing that made Sakura feel a little better. She knew someone could relate. Leaning into Samantha a bit, Sakura actually relaxed a bit.
"Thanks for being here," she said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:03 PM
"Not a problem." Samantha said with a slight, sad smile. "Were you and Jack... close?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 09:04 PM
"Roommate," Sakura replied. "Kinda found him when we were looking for Marissa after she was framed."

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:05 PM
"So uh..." Lauren said. "Weren't you going to call someone?"


"So uh..." Erika, miles away, was saying the same thing. "What do I do?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:06 PM
"Yeah. Like I said, she has the number on her, I don't," Jinn replied, handing Jasper the phone with a sly smile in her direction.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:07 PM
Samantha had actually previously assumed that they were a couple, given that they lived together and seemingly took care of Eleanor together. She didn't say that though. "Yes... they told me about how he was found." She replied, glancing at her two kids as she did so.


***

Jasper didn't even realize she was the one being spoken to for a moment. "Hm? Oh, yes, thank you..." She reached out to Jinn for the phone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:12 PM
Jinn wondered how Jasper didn't have the phone already, but nonetheless, he handed it to her again.

***

"Well, lesse..." Angel thought for a moment, not sure how much she wanted to trust this 'Erika' person, especially considering what had happened to Tracy and Kyle while in her care that one night, "Uh... you have any ideas? Any past experience you have that can potentially help us here?"

It was a loaded question, and Erika probably could tell, though probably couldn't determine why. It wasn't for what she might be thinking.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 20 2014, 09:14 PM
"I never even knew his real name..." Sakura sighed. "He never got to remember it..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:19 PM
Erika smirked for a fraction of a second. "I can be quite...resourceful. I'm good at improvising under pressure. I can fire a gun, and I'm not a bad shot. My uncle used to take me to the firing range."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:22 PM
Jasper dialed a number and casually began walking down the hall, again leaving Jinn and Lauren there, while she waited for someone to pick up.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:23 PM
Jinn stared after her with a "wtf" expression on his face.

Angel looked at the military dude.

"Can you use that on your team somewhere?" she asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:24 PM
"I can also be pretty sneaky," Erika added. "I played a lot of hide-and-go-seek as a kid."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:25 PM
"This is a military operation, we don't just randomly add freelancers to established teams."

Jasper then began leaving a message on her own answering machine in her and Jinn's apartment, about how they needed a ride.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:29 PM
"You totally do." Erika pointed out, raising an eyebrow.


Lauren fidgeted for a minute, then picked up a second slice of pizza and filled her mouth so she wouldn't feel so awkward.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:30 PM
"The team we're sending has trained and fought together, they know and trust each other, you'd be a third wheel." Sir replied.

Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:31 PM
"Send me somewhere on my own then." Erika suggested, not missing a beat.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:32 PM
Jinn stared at the floor.

"I feel so enclosed right now..."

***

Angel closed up her communicator.

"I kinda have to agree with Erika," she said, raising both eyebrows a bit, "A lot of things have been happening, and most of them have been stopped by the people you're looking at."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:33 PM
Lauren patted him on the back. "I could open a window, if you like."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:35 PM
"No... it's cold out there. I'll be fine," Jinn replied.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:37 PM
"She can come with me." Karen suggested.

Officer Sir looked between the three women, annoyed. "Very well." He conceded, feeling that he wasn't actually directing this operation anyway.



Jasper hung up and returned, offering the phone back to Lauren. "Zhis is very embarrassing, but our ride won't be here for another fifteen minutes. Mind if we stick around?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:38 PM
"Sure, no problem." Lauren said as she took the phone back, hoping Erika wouldn't mind. Well, of course she would mind, but, what the hay.




Erika wiggled her eyebrows triumphantly at Officer Sir.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:40 PM
Of course he wasn't Directing the Operation. That's MY job!

Angel seemed satisfied.

"How long till we ship out?" she asked.

Jinn shot Jasper a death glare with two evil eyes.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 09:41 PM
Ah, fifteen minutes to kill. Well, hopefully it wouldn't come to that, but you never know. "So do you live here?" Jasper asked Lauren, not noticing Jinn's look.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 09:42 PM
Jinn stretched out a bit, content to watch Jasper flub this part.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:43 PM
Lauren smiled and shook her head. "Naw, I live 'bout fifty minutes away. Outside of town."

"Here? Aye, this is my sister's place." Lauren answered.

"Did she just move in?" Jasper asked, looking around as if to note the emptiness.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 09:55 PM
"Recently, yeah." Lauren shrugged. "Our uncle's truck broke down; she hasn't been able to get most of her stuff up here yet."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 10:05 PM
"Heh, happens. Freaking truck drivers..." Jasper replied with a laugh, keeping the accent, just using... strange words.

Lauren frowned, feeling like there was a joke there she wasn't getting.

"Happened to us once, had to call Triple-A." Jasper explained.

"I'd like to forget that one," Jinn added.

***

Angel was standing outside the Training Room. She sensed Bearer was inside. To her left was Tracy, who was currently invisible.

"Remember, keep that cloak on," Angel reminded her before unlocking and opening the door and walking inside to find Bearer. The simulated area was a Spring park, like Central. He was on a bench overlooking a deep pond.

"Father," Angel grabbed his attention, flipping the wireless on, "We need to talk."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 10:16 PM
Tracy didn't reply. It was as though she really wasn't there.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 10:17 PM
Military was some ways back, snipers in position and a couple teams ready to go if need be. Karen was with Erika, also not too far away.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 10:29 PM
That was fine with Angel, as that was technically the plan.

"Beautiful daughter..." Bearer spoke, his voice cracked, as though he'd been crying, "We do need to speak. There isn't much time..."

Angel sat down next to him and threw an arm over his shoulder.

"Do you realize what you've done?" she asked softly, "Jack, one of the Marked, is dead. Tracy and Sakura, two more, should be dead."

"I know, Angel. I know I have sinned. I have not been honest with you, with them, with anyone. I believed the old ways would finally be proved true. That the Urn would guide me, and my Family, to victory over the Darkness..." he mumbled.

Angel looked at him with a bit of a frown.

"What else have you been hiding from me?"

Bearer sighed.

"His name. The Lord's name... He is Harrington. The first of the Sith. Foregone a monopoly on power over the galaxy to pursue the Urn and its Keeper, me, the Bearer of the Urn, for millennia in search of its power. A power destined not to destroy everything, not to build an eternal Empire, but to enlighten."

He looked at Angel.

"I cannot keep this Urn. You must take it from me."

Angel patted him on the back.

"Slow down, Father," she tried to soothe him, "Let's start with this - you said you can summon the Lord, Harrington. Is this true?"

"No. It was a bluff. A bluff to get them to listen to me. Then they went to his graveyard..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 10:30 PM
"Oh," Lauren said, still not quite getting it. "My uncle is too stubborn to call anyone. And a little paranoid about Triple-A for some reason. He pushed the truck six miles home when it broke down, and he's fixing it himself. He still has the car, but it's not big enough to hold furniture."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"Pushed... the truck..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 10:33 PM
Lauren grinned. "That's what the neighbor said. Aye, he pushed the truck. It's a small truck, he's a big man."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 10:33 PM
Tracy still remained silent, as she was supposed to. Though she had moved close enough to be able to see both faces and hear all the words clearly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"Naw." Lauren shook her head. "Mechanic. Sometimes."

"Sometimes?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Lauren nodded. "Sometimes he's a plumber."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 10:43 PM
"What about the graveyard? Why is it there?"

"You know what it used to be. The Lord arrived shortly after the Battle. Kay-Six had been burying the bodies of the Darkened soldiers he disposed of there for years. The Lord's presence only turned the place further. The sun became black as the sea, the grass a dead brown, the foliage and trees dried up and died, rotting away. There are no clouds left in the sky, and the sky itself is a heinous orange... so it will be on Thou darkest hour, according to Harrington's Prophecy, in which he will destroy you, kill me, take the Urn, and use its power for himself."

Angel was silent for a long moment.

"I can't say I like the fact that I lived this long with that down in the base of my ship, Father," she finally said, "So how did he know they were there? How many more hideouts does he have?"

"Hundreds. You will never find him. He will find you. He has eyes on every one of his places. Someone goes there, and there he is. It is like clockwork... some say he can even be in two places at once, Angel."

"How about-"

"Angel..."

Bearer stood up.

"If you take the Urn, you will understand everything. The power will be safe, and the knowledge of how to stop the Lord of Darkness will be yours."

"You'll know it when you see it," Jinn answered with an ominous head bob.

"What do you mean 'take the Urn'?"

"I will show you. Come with me."

Bearer made for the door at a brisk pace, as Angel stood up, unsure what was going on, and followed.

Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:02 PM
Bearer led Angel, and unknowingly Tracy, down the hall and up a flight up very long stairs. Stairs long enough to wind a normal person down considerably, actually. Angel was having to help Bearer get up them at a regular pace, but there was nothing she could do for Tracy.

Jinn nodded.

"Gardeners," he said, looking at Jasper, "Gardeners, right?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:05 PM
Tracy did slowly fall behind, as she was still exhausted from the earlier escapades. Granted she'd gotten some time to rest, but that didn't make her not tired and worn out.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 11:05 PM

Jinn stared at Jasper.

"Yeah. When was that?"

***

When Tracy caught up, Angel and Bearer were inside an elevator opposite her.

"Up," Bearer said yet again.

"Hang on, I still can't find it..." Angel was trying to buy Tracy some time to get in.

Bearer looked at Angel suspiciously.

"Your watch. It is in pristine condition. You cannot fool me."

Angel froze.

"Someone is with you."

With that, Bearer slammed his pudgy hand into the "down" button as the doors slid shut, and the elevator began a slow descent down.

Sighing, Tracy sat down at the door of the elevator and waited. Eventually she'd push the button to bring it back up and travel down herself.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 11:15 PM
The military was primed to move in - but for now, awaiting that final move order.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:23 PM
Inside the elevator, Angel felt the need to draw her weapon, one of them anyway, her one remaining Saber.

"Angel..." Bearer started to say, backing up to the opposite side of the rather large elevator as her, she taking the other side, pointing the Urn at her, "You know I am only trying to help you..."

"Whatever it is you're doing, I want you to seriously think again," Angel snapped at him, "This isn't going to end well for you. You've gotten one person killed already, and who knows how many more are going to die today and tomorrow forever more for what you failed to capitalize on yesterday."

"It doesn't need to end like this," Bearer stood his ground, "Take the Urn, Angel."

"That Urn has caused nothing but destruction for how long? It should be destroyed!"

"Take it, Angel..."

"No!"

"TAKE IT!"

Not allowing her a chance to refuse again, Bearer opened the lid of the Urn and dropped it on the floor, a continuous stream of white and black energy shooting from it and into Angel, who dropped her Saber and went totally silent, levitating into the air against her will while what sounded like crackling energy echoed through the elevator shat and Angel's transmitter.

Bearer, and the Urn, meanwhile, began to dissolve.

The doors opened, finally, to reveal Angel sitting in the middle of said elevator in a meditative posture, eyes closed, with grave dust all around. Bearer, and the Urn, were nowhere to be seen.

"Angel?" Tracy asked nervously, taking a step toward her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:40 PM
Angel's eyes opened. They were solid blue.

"Hm?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:40 PM
"What's... going... on?" Tracy stammered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:43 PM
Angel levitated herself to her feet and stepped out of the elevator.

"There is nothing left," she said, but sounded like she had more to say on the matter, then looked at the military team.

"Bearer is gone. Situation under control."

"Like hell it is," Karen's voice came from behind the military team. Some of them stepped aside so she could get past. "What just happened?" She demanded.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:46 PM
Tracy was just dumbfounded that Angel's FATHER could disappear completely, seemingly disintegrated if the dust in the elevator was any indication, and yet Angel would be so carefree about it. Not to mention that she expected the military and police people to just drop the subject without an explanation. Tracy was really wondering what went on in Angel's head.

Erika was wherever. More specifically, right on Karen's tail. She stopped next to her and waited for the answer.

Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:47 PM
"Father enlightened me, and then he passed," Angel said to her, "He has moved on."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 20 2014, 11:47 PM
"Care to enlighten us in turn?" Karen asked in an irritable tone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 11:48 PM
Erika shot Karen a quick sidelong glare when she stole the words right out of her mouth.

Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:50 PM
"Weren't you listening?" Angel asked in the same calm voice, taking the wireless off and checking it to see if it worked, which it did, "He demanded of me to take the Urn. I refused. He forced it upon me. Now I am enlightened of the transpirities of this situation, and many more, and Father is no longer with us."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:51 PM
"Is that him? Or what's left anyway?" Tracy asked, pointing at the "grave dust" on the floor of the elevator.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:53 PM
"Yes," Angel answered without turning around, "His body turned to dust, from whenst it came."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:54 PM
"Well... what did he enlighten you about?" Tracy asked the next logical question.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 11:55 PM
Erika stepped past the others into the elevator, bent down, and touched the dust. She lifted up a finger and sniffed it. "Neat trick."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 20 2014, 11:57 PM
"That is not a question I can directly answer," Angel replied, rather directly, "What I can do, however, is show you how to defeat Harrington."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 20 2014, 11:59 PM
"Show me how to defeat Harrington?" Tracy asked, confused by the wording.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 20 2014, 11:59 PM
Erika quietly dusted up some of the powder and put it into a small plastic baggie.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 12:01 AM
"You in a general sense," Angel said absently, her mind wandering to something more important than this conversation, "Unlike Father, I do not hesitate to share viable information. Not now, anyway."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 12:03 AM
"Which explains why we're talking in circles right now when we could be stopping these madmen." Karen growled, "I'm growing tired of your bullshit, just get to the point already and tell us how to stop them before there's another attack."

The resident purplehead just stood in dumb silence, again.

Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 12:16 AM
Angel suddenly looked at Karen rather darkly.

"Then get out of my way while I do just that," she stated sharply, then started walking down the hall, "They'll be going into capture mode now. They've done their damage, now they'll round up the Marked for a group execution."

She stopped at the end of the hall.

"Find all the Marked. Round them up, put them together in one place. Dare them to attack. Harrington will send Firehawk and Remus, leaving him exposed. With Remus and Leroy out in the open, they'll be easy targets for two strong Light magic users. Don't ask why. I will find Harrington, and take him out. But first thing's first, find. All. The. Marked. We don't know of them all, and of the ones we know, one is dead and we are missing Eleanor!"

She spun around, glaring a hole through Karen.

"I don't care what you have to do, if I have to go out there with him, but find that child!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 21 2014, 12:20 AM
"How are we supposed to find them all if we don't know who they all are?" Erika asked, coming back out of the elevator.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 07:47 AM
"Maybe we should just find everyone on Angel's contacts list." Tracy chimed in, "And probably a lot of the people on ours..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 08:42 AM
"We're not going to use a group of innocents as bait against three foes none of which you or we've been able to defeat even one at a time." Karen snapped back.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 21 2014, 08:52 AM
"If they're associated with Angel and Remus, they probably aren't that innocent." Erika pointed out.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 10:19 AM
"Thanks for the kind words." Tracy deadpanned, even though she knew it was true that the lot of them had gotten away with a lot that they shouldn't have.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 11:16 AM
"Do you want to defeat Harrington or not?" Angel asked Karen in a cold tone, "Find them. Get them together. Either you do it, or they will."

Post by: Rattler on May 21 2014, 03:00 PM
After a while of just sitting with Samantha, Sakura recovered enough to be able to think clearly again. She had put her Saber back on her belt, and was just currently resting on the couch with her eyes closed. Having remembered that Eleanor was still out there, she was trying to think of some way to help find her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 21 2014, 03:52 PM
Erika rubbed the ash between two fingers and examined it closely, then touched her tongue to her finger.
    "Hmm..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 06:36 PM
You might expect Angel to be disturbed at the sight of someone licking her Father's ashes, but she didn't react at all.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 07:53 PM
"Dude... that's someone's remains." A young looking soldier in the squad said to Erika as Karen and Angel argued.

"I'm not doing anything until you explain yourself." Karen replied firmly, "You've given me no reason to trust you today, and for all I know your supposed FATHER, or even you at this point, could be in on it."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 08:18 PM
Tracy was looking over at Erika with similar thoughts as the soldier.

"I hang out with the weirdest people..." she noted to herself.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 08:18 PM
"I don't expect your trust, I expect your cooperation," Angel went back to a calm look and tone, "With Father dead, and you can look at the security recordings if you like, I already told you what Harrington will try and do, and how you can cut him off. If you don't do it, I will."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 08:24 PM
"Cooperation works both ways. Your suggested plan relies on three light magic users, to my knowledge we only have one and that's you, and not an hour ago you told us Remus was unstoppable, now after something your lunatic FATHER did to you, you call him an 'easy target'. No. I've trusted you this far but this is where it stops, if you want my cooperation you need to start giving back."

By now Officer Sir had arrived.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 08:32 PM
Angel stared at Karen with her solid blue eyes, sensing Officer Sir, and calculating the number of soldiers around them.

"I would prefer your cooperation. I do not need it," she said blankly, then added in a lighter tone, "As I said, I cannot directly explain what has happened here. It is what you would call supernatural. Words do not and can not give it justice. If you want something, name something else."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 08:37 PM
There were ten soldiers not counting Erika, Karen, or Sir.

"You've obviously changed. And until we know what the change is we'd be insane to blindly follow a fraction of an order while you withhold all else and risk over a dozen civilian lives and collateral damage."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 08:48 PM
"I believe you are destined to do something great in the future, Sakura." the voice spoke to the currently moping young woman.

"The Urn. The object, the power Harrington has been after all this time. Father was supposed to take care of it. He passed it to me. The power was, or is, enlightenment, as he put it. The knowledge of the great Philosopher Sting - that's a name you wouldn't know, and don't ask me to explain it to you, we'd be here a week - is what was inside. I have gained nothing from this that can physically defeat Remus," she said with a totally straight face, "But sometimes you can't rely on brute force alone. That's where Sting comes in."

"Comes in how?" Sir interjected.

Post by: Rattler on May 21 2014, 08:51 PM
Sakura cracked an eye open, breaking her vegging and thinking of how to find Eleanor. She looked around for a moment before she realized it was the Voice again.
You know... one of these days you're gonna have to give me a name to attach to that voice. she replied in her head.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 08:54 PM
"When the situation is more appropriate, perhaps." the voice replied, "What is relevant now is that you are alive when you should be dead. Fate has something planned for you, though what I cannot tell. Now, however; you should do as I suggested earlier. Meditate and focus your thoughts on Eleanor."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 21 2014, 08:59 PM
Sakura closed her eye again and went back to thinking about how to find Eleanor.
If you're expecting me to do the whole sit cross legged hands up thing... I'm not alone and they'd all look at me funny.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"The hands up thing was added later by dramatists. Disregard it."

Sakura couldn't help herself, and had to supress a laugh. Shaking her head, Sakura tried again to focus on Eleanor.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 09:06 PM
"There is a balance. In life, in death, in everything. Sting knew that. He prophesied his life on it. He lived as long as he did in the times he did because he viewed everything as equal. When the Darkness first began to cast its shadow, Sting was there to balance it out. And when the Light shined through all, Sting brought upon a little Darkness," she explained, keeping her composure as though it made perfect sense to her, "After Sting's death, the Darkness ruled all. And it still does to this day. Harrington and Remus are the old-timers from another era, casting their dark shadows continuously. Firehawk is the latest, the newest one to survive the Trials. The Light is overwhelmed. I am all that visibly stands today to balance it between those three. I am just not that strong."

"The art of balance is complicated. But Sting knew these locations Harrington frequents. Only four of them are important - they are the sites of the original Sith Temples on this planet, crawling with Dark energy. Extract the Darkness from there, progress is made to restore balance, and the Dark Three grow weaker, and I stronger."

Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 09:14 PM
Again, a bit of power gradually channeled into Sakura, though this seemed to have a different feel than what she'd felt in the basement. She felt a bit more relaxed, if not light-headed as her thoughts wandered into dream like things, many random and unrelated to Eleanor.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 21 2014, 09:17 PM
A little surprised by this, Sakura tried to focus on Eleanor again.

"Let it go now. The wandering mind will refocus itself in time."

Sakura hesitated, but finally let go and just let herself drift on this river.

"Two of them are Dark Lords and one of them is being brainwashed, I do believe. They're so accustomed to having the world in their hands they won't notice it until it's too late," Angel replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 21 2014, 09:29 PM
"That's a pretty big assumption for the plan to rely on. And what about you, after you've siphoned their power yourself?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 21 2014, 09:29 PM
Eventually, if Sakura did it right and wasn't interrupted, she went into a trance of sorts. It was at this point glimpses of locations across the planet flashed through her mind, sometimes fleetingly, other times they remained longer. Eventually it seemed to settle on one location...

***

Tracy looked like a dazed zombie now. Really, she was in ripped up pajamas (as the cops presumably hadn't let her change clothes before taking her in for questioning), with bruises and a few bloody wounds on her, and dirt, and other grim, and she was tired as hell. Add to that a now blank stare off into nothingness...

Hopefully this doesn't start an apocalypse. But this is Dawnbreaker, apocalypses don't last long. Sometimes they even have love affairs with mercenaries and angels... wait, what are we talking about?

Jasper noticed a car pull up and stop by the curb across the street from Erika's apartment.
"Oh look, our ride is here. Fabulous."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 21 2014, 09:45 PM
"Not all of it goes to me," Angel was quick to correct, "And not all of it comes from those three. Any Dark Lord on the planet grows weaker, and any Master of the Light grows stronger. Them, me, and anyone else. Remus and Harrington carry the bulk of it. They will lose the most. The Light will grow stronger, balance will move closer, and maybe, just maybe, I might be able to strike one of them while the iron is hot."

"But, and there is always a catch, remember this with magic, for me to strike one of them, we need to draw them out and separate them somehow. That is where the Marked come in. Group them together, lure them out. Of course they won't be alone. The military will have a presence. But they will need separated. And that..."

Angel looked at Tracy, though she couldn't tell since her eyes were solid blue, so Angel craned her neck in her direction, "Is where you come in."

Jinn was not informed of any ride, that is, that it would actually show up, but he sold it well.

"Yes. We should be going. Thank you for everything, Lauren."

Tracy shook her head to clear out the cobwebs (or were those thoughts of eating people? Hmm...) and looked at Angel.

"What am I supposed to do?" she asked neutrally.

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 12:36 PM
"You wanted to do something big, yes?" Angel repeated Tracy's intentions from before to her, "How about showing the Dark Three that their power cannot overcome the Marked?"

She had a strange look on her face. Tracy would recognize it as 'that' look. The look she usually presents when she goes to that place in the mind that some people call "Evil Angel."

(Also known as the look on her face before she does some of her most dastardly deeds, such as applying The Claw to Suki, murderizing a dozen men at the Mall, creating a Voidsabre and using it, and in Tracy's presence specifically, down beneath her Mansion only recently against the Demon Overlord, where she lost control for a few brief moments. There are others but Author Jason can't remember and is too lazy to look through all of Legacies to find them)

Eleanor was in a small blue house on the outskirts of the Capital. Actually, she was right outside it in the front yard, building a snowman.

"The Advent went to war with the Trade Coalition hundreds of years ago. One of the attempts by the Traders to hold off my ancestors on their homeworlds was an invention called the T-D-E, otherwise known as the Trader-Defense-Exosuit," she said, "It is a mech-skeleton suit designed to sustain the wear and tear of a post-apocalyptic battlefield with orbital bombardment, impassible terrain, and alien weapons as daily obstacles."

"During the Battle, in which I stole the SE Archives from their Database aboard the DS3, they referenced these Trader schematics from their brief stint together as partners. I built one way back in the day on the off chance I would ever need it, and as it turns out I did. Those deserts aren't friendly to a woman. I brought it here when I built this place, and we can use it now for offensive and defensive purposes."

Post by: Tyler294 on May 22 2014, 03:16 PM
"And I'd be the only one who has it? You're trusting me to be able to use it correctly and defend everyone?" Tracy asked, a little daunted by that thought.

Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 03:20 PM
"The way I see it working out, there would be three people, yourself included, around when you put that suit on. One of them is me. The other is Firehawk. You incapacitate, but don't kill, him, and I siphon the information from him we can use to lay the proper trap for Harrington."

...

"He will die of course," Angel felt it best to point out, "After I get what I need from him, you can do as you wish with him."

There were no other houses next to the house Eleanor was at. The place was surrounded by trees, but Sakura could tell it wasn't out in the middle of nowhere because there were powerlines and train tracks behind it.

"I have a location in mind," Angel responded to Sir, returning her neck to a normal position, seeming like she was looking at nothing now, "A long lost underground complex near where the Battle took place. It is where I received much of my technique guidance, and the home of the Ekatra Order. The neutral Magic user, impartial to the Light and the Dark, no longer affiliated with Remus and the Sentinel."

"The complex has been sealed since the formation of the Republic. No one goes out, only Ekatra go in. Should I arrive today, I believe they would still accept me as one of their own, and perhaps grant use of their chambers for what I intend to do."

...

"Assuming any of their descendents live to this day."

"If they are dead, they cannot stop an entry," Angel pointed out, "If they live, there would be few. Never would have seen the sun, living on what they can grow in their underground farms. But they would be in perfect alignment in their mind and body. That said, with a T-D-E and myself, should they refuse, we can simply go to Plan B."

"That's the point," Angel sighed, "Dare them to attack. If they do, good for them. Remus will die at the hands of the military and you can stick that on your wall. If they don't, they come up with a strategy that I will know of once I get my hands on Firehawk. Do you see where this is going yet?

"When I have that information, we have Remus and his 'Lord' right where we want them - playing into our hands. They will either adapt or perish. So is the nature of the world. It's called evolution. That's what this plan is. Someone is going to adapt, and someone is going to perish. They have a plan, we have a plan. And until I hear you or someone else come up with a better way to ensnare all three of them, 'Evolution' is what we are going with."

"You're assuming Firehawk will even come after us at all. And that he will come alone. If he is working for the Dark Lord, why wouldn't all three come at once?" Tracy asked, repeating an earlier question that had gone unanswered.

Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 07:55 PM
"Again, Firehawk isn't getting there under his own power," Angel said, this time with a little more authority, "The other two will be helpless to stop it."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 22 2014, 07:56 PM
"Um... okay." Tracy responded, "But how will you keep the other two from following?"

"They are incapable of folliowing," was all Angel said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 22 2014, 08:08 PM
"I hope you're right about that." Tracy remarked softly.

At some point during the meditation, Sakura shifted in her spot. Shortly after that, the brunette fell over and landed on her side on the couch, pulling her out of the vision with a surprised yelp on impact.

"Oi..." A voice protested. Sakura noticed she was on something squishy. Oh wait, it was a someone...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 08:28 PM
Sakura looked to see who it was.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 08:30 PM
It was Marissa. "Hi."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 08:30 PM
"Oh... hi..." Sakura said, feeling a little awkward before getting up off her friend.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 08:34 PM
"How so?" Karen asked.



Marissa gave Sakura an inquisitive look.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 08:35 PM
"Marissa..." Sakura finally said after a minute. "I... I think I got something..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 08:39 PM
"Let's put it this way," Angel chose her words carefully, "If they could do it, they would have done it by now," she said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 08:48 PM
"Is it contagious?"

"More assumptions..." Karen muttered.

"Earlier you said we had no chance against Remus, now you just said we could take him down. What's changed?" Sir interjected.

"I saw Eleanor," Sakura said.

"Where? How?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 08:53 PM
"Kinda hard to explain really..." Sakura replied, scratching the back of her head. "Force stuff I guess. Anyways... she was outside a blue house surrounded by trees making a snowman. There were train tracks nearby, and power lines."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 08:58 PM
"You mean a vision?" Marissa asked, actually rather receptive to that idea considering she'd had a few herself.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 08:58 PM
"Well... yea... I guess..." Sakura admitted.

"Do you think that's where she's at right now?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"I hope so..." Sakura replied. "Now the question is... where is that..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:02 PM
Angel looked at Sir, as suddenly all the sound around them became non-existent. All they could hear was their own breathing, and even their hearts beating.

She tilted her head a little and said, "Everything," in the voice Tracy used to know, the echoing one, as the sound came back.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 22 2014, 09:04 PM
Tracy nervously shuffled her feet. Being here, right above that damn graveyard, wasn't making her comfortable. Even with Angel and the soldiers present.

Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 09:04 PM
Sir was unnerved, but tried as best he could to remove that from his face and look at Angel defiantly, awaiting an actual answer.

***

"Call Angel, she might have a way to find her." Marissa suggested almost by default.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:08 PM
Sakura nodded and reached for her cell phone, before checking her Omni Tool for the number. She still hadn't programmed it into her cell, and dialed it manually.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:15 PM
Angel could sense the discomfort, but her face remained passive.

"If you have doubts, tr-"

Angel's communicator rang just then, giving her the perfect opportunity.

She looked at it strangely for a moment, before raising an eyebrow at Sir and picking up.

"Sorry Sakura. It is for the greater good."

Hanging up, she closed her eyes and focused, waving both her hands in a large square motion before her, as a swirling pool of blue came to life, like a television screen almost but with no boundaries. Sakura was visible on it, and next to her was Marissa, though she was very foggy.

"Come forth, Sakura," Angel spoke, opening her eyes and reaching out a hand, electrical sparks flying from it and into this 'thing' she had created, which on Sakura's end only appeared as two solid blue eyes looking at her, then all at once a gaping maw opened up and swallowed her hole, and all sealed up, and Sakura was on the floor of the Mansion in front of Angel, the portal closed off.


Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:16 PM
"Ow..." Sakura groaned.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:19 PM
Some discomfort was visible on the face on Angel, as well. That maneuver had visibly taken some out of her.

"Welcome, Sakura, to my humble abode. You remember Tracy and Erika. Karen, from before. This is Sir, the military representative, and you were the showcase for what I am going to do to Firehawk to get him from the custody of evil into permanent custody," she said.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:20 PM
"Warn me next time..." Sakura muttered as she got to her feet. "I was gonna tell you I might have a lead on Eleanor."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:21 PM
That got Angel's attention.

"Oh?"

Her ability to go from one topic to the next is just astonishing, isn't it?
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:23 PM
Sakura told her what she saw, leaving out the part about the mysterious voice giving her some help. That was one mystery she wanted to solve on her own. Besides... Angel might think she was posessed... again.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:29 PM
Angel had that shortchanging feeling go through her since, after all, she's one of the best at reading people. She thought it was about her eye, though, and perceived DS delusions, so she didn't pursue it.

But she did have one question.

"No offense intended, but how did you have a vision like that?" she asked after a moment, "You have hardly any experience and training in the area. How do you know it wasn't placed into your mind by the Sith to lure you to them?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:31 PM
"I guess I just got lucky," Sakura replied. "Besides... the only one who knows about Eleanor is Firehawk, and I doubt he's stable enough to set a trap like that, let alone know if I'm actively looking for her."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:36 PM
"Sakura, I don't think you understand. Firehawk is not Firehawk anymore. He has been absorbed into a collective Darkness. Everything he knows has been processed. What little personality he has left is malice and sorrow. If Firehawk knew of Eleanor, Harrington does now, too. And there is a good chance Remus does as well. She is on a list of people to be assassinated. We can't take chances.

"But... if that is a genuine vision, we can't just ignore it. Got to do something..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 09:40 PM
"If you're going to find her, I'm coming with you," Sakura said in a tone that said she was serious. "Say what you want about me, but I am not abandoning her."
She then took a deep breath.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 09:44 PM
Angel shot her a look.

"'Mortality is the mile we walk every day of our lives. The greatest threat to us on our individual path of mortality is ourselves.' Sting, 602 BTC. That sums you up just about right," she said in a rather harsh voice.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 10:22 PM
Sakura gave Angel a sideways smile.
"'We have to believe that life is what we make of it!'" she countered. "Deunan Knute, 10 BTB if I remember correctly. I think she was a soldier who came through one of the gates before they were sealed."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Angel raised an eyebrow.

"'After everything we've been through, past all the fire and fury... the one thing I know - is that we can count on each other to get the job done. Or die trying, if that's what it takes'," Sakura replied. "'Because some things are just worth fighting for'. Commander Raynor, 2504 AD. Found a datapad along with some other artifacts. Don't think he came here though."
She crossed her arms across her chest.
"We done throwin' quotes around yet? 'Cause we got a job to do."

Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 10:41 PM
"'You do not understand the Powers at Work here,'" Angel quoted the Gatekeeper in a shockingly well done robotic voice, then cleared her throat and said in a totally normal tone, "And neither do you."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 10:49 PM
"You're right, I don't," Sakura replied. But what she said next was surprising, as it was actually something Krystal once said in the alternate timeline.
"Bad guys do bad things. Fact of life. But as long as I can do something about it... Then there's always hope."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 10:50 PM
"And neither do any of us here as it were, and unless you 'enlighten' us soon, we are going to take matters into our own hands." Sir interrupted irritably in reply to Angel.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 22 2014, 10:55 PM
Angel was admittedly a little unnerved by Sakura's quoting of Krystal. Granted she should have expected nothing less at this point...

"If you elect to take matters into your own hands, I will be forced to take your hands from you, 'Sir'," Angel spoke defiantly, looking at him, "You don't have any idea what you are getting into. I do. You walk out that door, you're on your own."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 22 2014, 10:57 PM
"You're right, I don't. Which is why I'm giving you one last chance to tell me before I decide I'm wasting precious time dealing with you."

The military squad by now had ceased any small talk or distractions, and were very on edge.

Post by: Rattler on May 22 2014, 11:01 PM
"Um... I'm totally lost right now," Sakura spoke up. "So... what are we doing? And can we please focus and not argue?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 12:03 AM
Sir stared long and hard at Angel, before finally replying to Sakura, though without taking his gaze off the resident Anima.
    "Evidently not. Squad, arrest Miss Crossroads, for obstruction of justice, withholding information, and threatening an officer of the military."



The Raynes and the police were wondering what the hell just happened.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 23 2014, 12:04 AM
"Oh for cryin' out loud..." Sakura sighed and facepalmed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 12:12 AM
Before the squad could move from their stances, the sound flushed out again, Angel's eyes flashed, and they all fell where they began to move, dead, their minds crushed, leaving Sir and Karen (Also Tracy Sakura and Erika) alone with Angel. This time the noise did not return as she spoke.

"I'm afraid I cannot allow that to happen this time, Sir," Angel stated in a perfectly calm voice, "While you may be willing to sacrifice mankind on this planet to fulfill a lawman's desire for tainted justice, I am here to respectfully and if need be forcefully remind you that there are still things and people in this world that you simply do not understand. Harrington and his Ministry are two of them. I will give you a choice - leave this place and never come back, or die right here as the Dark Three pick your allies apart at the seams as bait while I and whomever else is brave enough eliminate them one-by-one."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 23 2014, 12:23 AM
Sakura double facepalmed.
"Oi vey..." she muttered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 04:47 AM
Tracy knelt down over one of the fallen soldiers and checked a pulse.

"You killed them." she stated, looking up at Angel with a pained expression.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 08:31 AM
Both Karen and Sir had pulled their sidearms out the moment the squad went down, and had them aimed at Angel's head for the duration of her monologue. Assuming they weren't dead on that merit alone, Sir spoke: "You're insane..."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 12:40 PM
"I'm crazy," Angel corrected him, then recited another quote, "'To be insane is to have lost all sense of right and wrong. To be crazy is to do whatever is necessary to achieve what is perceived as right.' You get the picture by now. And here's another one; You need to choose your course of action carefully. You may pursue me, or the Dark Lords. You cannot pursue both. Pursue them, we do not need to cross paths again. You do not come back here, and you do not send any body back here.

"If you pursue me...

As she spoke Karen and Sir may notice something strange with their weapons if they were paying enough attention to them at the moment. A slight vibration is all they felt as a telekinetic force entered the barrels, ready to suppress, and backfire, any shot they tried to take.

"I cannot guarantee you exit this building alive today, and the same can be said for any troops your superiors send to hunt me down here. Apart from wasting their time trying to kill me, they will be allowing the Dark Lords to achieve what they want - dissension within the ranks. While I can in theory pull off my entire plan alone, it will take time. Time this world simply does not have.

The sound finally flushed back in.

"Now make your choice."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 07:11 PM
While Angel was babbling about the differences between crazy and insane, Karen fired, aimed right at the back of Angel's head.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 07:16 PM
The previously-mentioned thing with the gun happened, and it backfired and exploded in a blast of shrapnel aimed back at Karen, who in all likelihood was probably dead.

Angel heard her fall, her expression a mix of displeasure and remorse.

Then she looked at Sir with the same expression.

"I can't let you leave. I'm sorry."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:14 PM
Tracy suddenly let out a pained gasp. The left side of her body, especially the left arm, shoulder, torso and leg above the knee that she was kneeling on over the dead man, had been struck by pieces of the exploded gun, as she had been standing to the side of Karen, partially within the semi-circle blast zone. There was also a big gash in her cheek, half her ear was gone, her arm was had a big flap of skin hanging loosely from it and there was blood now just starting to ooze out of the wounds. Her reaction had been delayed, as it took a few seconds for everything to register in her mind.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 23 2014, 10:19 PM
Erika made a similar hiss of pain as a few pieces of shrapnel embedded themselves into her torso and right arm. She backed up a step and put a hand to the worst spot on her belly, clenching her teeth.
    She quickly shook it off as best she could and knelt next to Tracy, checking on her.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 23 2014, 10:21 PM
Whatever Sakura was going to say died instantly as she went into shock at what had just happened, and seeing the condition her cousin and Erika was in.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 10:22 PM
Karen lay motionless on the ground, face burned and shredded beyond recognition.

Sir was speechless, shocked, and afraid.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:22 PM
Tracy was still on her knees next to the dead soldier, but she started to wobble and fall forward after a moment, letting out a moan. She didn't have the energy to cry out anymore.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 10:29 PM
Angel cast but a brief glance over her shoulder, then back at Sir, her expression cold.

"Do you see what is happening here?" she asked in a low voice, "We are playing right into Harrington's hands. This is the perfect setup for the Dark Lords to achieve victory.

One of her disruptors slid from her sleeve and into her right hand.

"And it's too late to go back now. The world will pay for the sins committed here today."

Barring Sir firing his gun and doing it himself, interrupting her, someone else interrupting Angel, or something I am not thinking of, Angel fired a single disintegrator blast into Sir's face.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 10:31 PM
And now Sir had no face.

And also now, a certain 'lucky' officer outside had been promoted.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:33 PM
Tracy fell face first onto the floor, crying, gasping and wheezing in pain. Even if there weren't any major organs damaged, blood loss would certainly finish her off in a few minutes anyway.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 23 2014, 10:33 PM
Erika caught Tracy and set her down flat on the floor gently. "Hold still, Tracy." She said quietly. In a second she had found scissors in her bag and started cutting away part of Tracy's shirt to check the wounds.
    Before she could start treating her Angel fired on Sir, making her look up quickly again. She kept an eye on Angel while putting pressure on Tracy's worst wounds.
    They were interrupted by a phone ringing. Karen's phone, to be specific.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 10:34 PM
Angel picked up Karen's phone and answered it.

"Uriah, I presume?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 23 2014, 10:35 PM
"Yes."
...
"Where is the Warden?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 10:41 PM
"There has been a disheartening turn of events," Angel said immediately, "The Lord of Darkness has achieved a major victory on his road to conquest - Karen Mills is no more, Officer Sir has been slain, and the team of soldiers wiped out. I regret my actions, and I will see to it that each and every one of them, as well as the initial victims, are shown the justice they deserve when Harrington's reign is put to an end."

*Click*

Angel turned to Erika.

"Is she going to be okay?"

She sounded worried now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 23 2014, 10:42 PM
"Oh NOW you're worried?!" Sakura snapped. "As opposed to WHEN IT HAPPENED?! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 23 2014, 10:45 PM
Erika laughed, but it wasn't the humorous type. "I doubt it." She was tearing parts of her own sleeves off to use to try to stop the bleeding, but Tracy was dangerously pale already.
    "Calm the feck down, Sakura," She warned. "And get over here and help. There are too many of them."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:45 PM
"Oh God... I'm gunna die... I'm gunna die..." Tracy moaned weakly.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 23 2014, 10:47 PM
Sakura went over to help, but it was obvious she was on the edge of a total breakdown now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 10:49 PM
Angel worriedly ran her hands through her hair after holstering her weapon, trying to think of something she could do to help Tracy. She finally came up with something.

Settling into a meditative posture, Tracy's flesh began to very slowly seal itself back up, as though she were in a bacta tank. But in pain. Lots of pain.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 23 2014, 10:50 PM
Back at the Rayne house, Uriah had gone completely still and silent as he contemplated what Angel had just said. After a moment he blinked, then turned to the Raynes.
    "Karen Mills and her team are dead." He told them. "I don't know anything about the others."






"Shh," Erika gestured at a wad of blood-soaked fabric, not noticing Angel's interference yet. "Put pressure on that."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:51 PM
Tracy let out a near-soundless scream, which also had a bit of sputter to it as blood was running into her mouth from her check.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 23 2014, 10:52 PM
The blood flow slowed somewhat, noticeably, in fact. Interference from Angel was de-stressing Tracy's heartbeat, getting it back down to a normal level.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 23 2014, 10:59 PM
Tracy continued to cry and make occasional noises, though she started to calm now.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 23 2014, 10:59 PM
"How?"
"Did the mansion get hit?"
"What about Tracy? Is Sakura there?"
Various Raynes asked in quick succession.

***

A laser dot appeared on Angel's back... and not a second later, three triggers were pulled by the three in the lead of a second military team, who had silently entered the mansion just seconds after Sir's death.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 12:07 AM
Angel sensed the men approaching and waited until she felt their presences change, and she leveled herself even with the floor (She had been slightly in the air levitating) to avoid the shots and spun around on her heel to her feet, projecting a telekinetic barrier between herself and the soldiers, her Sabre in her hand and ignited.

While she knew she was safe behind the barrier from most modern-day weapons (Excluding the likes of high-powered sniper rifles and high-velocity lasers, assuming they still exist elsewhere) she didn't want to let them know that, so she teleported a short distance away, but left the barrier there to protect her friends in case the soldiers got any funny ideas.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 24 2014, 12:08 AM
"Stop... stop it... don't ki---" Tracy sputtered, before losing the energy to finish her statement.

All but two squad members covered all directions on alert while the two others prepared charges in an attempt to breach the barrier to get to Angel's friends.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 24 2014, 12:15 AM
Tracy reached up and grabbed Sakura's arm.

"Do... Don't le..." she was shaking her head as she spoke, "Don't let... Angel... kill..."

Angel, meanwhile, had teleported to one of her many storage chests down in the ship to swap Sabres. Blue for black, with another on the house.

That done, she tp'd again, rendering herself invisible with an old Advent Light manipulation technique in the hall with the soldiers. She knew what they were here for, on both counts, only one of which she had reason to kill. But she never trusted the military, especially now, on this dire of a scale. And if they were left here, they'd be back even sooner.

With careful precision, Angel detonated the air around each soldier, which was a similar impact to being struck with a baseball bat to every part of your body and having the wind knocked out, in which armor didn't do a thing. They would realistically drop their weapons, as the feeling would go through their fingers, too. But they'd live, for the moment.

Some of them dropped their weapons, some didn't. Some others found a way around the barrier, and grabbed Sakura, Erika, and Tracy, and began hauling them out as quickly as possible.

The second the blast struck, Angel reappeared, carrying two Voidsabres, which she instantly put to good use by voiding the troopers without weapons and using the other one to void projectiles from the ones who hadn't.

The second of the two backup squads were coming up behind Angel by now. Five from the first squad were already dead - while a few of what remained stayed to fire back, the others who had the girls changed directions and began looking for another way out of the building.

Tracy was starting to lose consciousness as her eyes drifted back into her head. She just kept uttering the word "stop" over and over as she did.

Post by: Rattler on May 24 2014, 12:30 AM
Sakura was too distraught to fight back, as they didn't grab her in a way that would trigger a fear response. Although she did break away once to stay close to Tracy.

Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 12:38 AM
The only way out in that hallway was the elevator, or through Angel - an elevator, oh by the way, none of them knew how to run. Only Tracy and Angel had that knowledge.

(Look it up. Only Tracy and Angel have used them, and Bearer, but he's Angel's FATHER and he's dead, so it totally works)

Angel voided two soldiers in close proximity with her right sabre and blast-electrocuted a third to death, but not with the Force, with a literal elemental lightning strike conjured from her mind - Evil Angel indeed - but surprisingly, let the soldiers carrying her friends go right past her unharmed as she conjured another barrier, her back to the elevator with it coming up to her, everything dead around her.

Meanwhile, in an almost forgotten scene, J&J had hitchhiked their way into someone else's car via a couple Jedi Mind Tricks, and were on their way to a random cafe. The only purpose was to look like they were picked up by someone to Lauren.

"Angelica didn't give much information." Uriah said. "She didn't say anything about the others.
    "We need to move. Harrington may be coming here next."

Erika stayed with Tracy, keeping her head low to avoid any stray bullets that might pass by as she continued to try to help the purplehead. "Stop talking, you're straining your lungs. Just stay awake."
    Just then Erika's phone rang. She ignored it.

The military squad ceased fire - then left the building with the others. Outside, assuming nothing on the lawn murderized them, they very quickly escorted the three women far away from the building, then the military who had set up shop not too far away began firing powerful mortars at Angel's mansion. Meanwhile Tracy, Erika, and Sakura heard some helicopters not far off...

Post by: Tyler294 on May 24 2014, 03:03 PM
Tracy looked around bewildered as she heard the mortar fire.

"Everything I own is in there!" she barely managed to blurt out, before going into a coughing fit.

Angel meanwhile was in her ship, underneath the trapdoor. Hearing and feeling the explosions beneath her, she TP'd to the bridge of the Halcyon-class Carrier buried deep in the ground.

...

Once at the bridge, she activated the ship's main power frame, which had not seen action in a considerable amount of time, and activated the particle shield generators - all 16 of them - the antimatter reactors, the weapon systems, everything she would need in case the military tried anything fancy.

***

As soon as the shields came to life a beautiful blue glow emanated from the ground and in the ocean nearby where the ship was buried as dirt and water alike began to melt and evaporate against the intense heat.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 24 2014, 03:15 PM
The mortars ceased fire briefly, only to adjust their aim to the ocean area where the ship was, where they resumed bombardment.

Then the military choppers arrived, carrying rather large payloads which they intended to drop on the ship.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 03:17 PM
They quickly found out that their weapons, as powerful as they were, were no match for a flagship's sixteen shield generators.

Meanwhile, the Mansion began to collapse towards the street.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 24 2014, 03:20 PM
Actually they didn't find that, since they couldn't yet see the ship as it was behind the mansion. They just knew where it was and where to fire and knew that they weren't missing, so they continued to bomb the hell out of it. Then the helicopters each dropped bombs which were essentially mini-nukes, at least in terms of power.

The military was far enough away that they weren't in danger of being hit by the mansion, or their own explosives.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 03:24 PM
Considering that this very ship used to be fired upon with real nuclear weapons on a regular basis by the TEC during the Great War, mini-nukes hitting its shields was about the equivalent of firing a blaster rifle at a Star Destroyer. It's just not gonna happen.

Angel was roaming around in the ship, collecting things here and there she was going to need.

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 24 2014, 03:25 PM
They bombed a while longer before getting in some EMPs in an effort to bring down the shields.

Meanwhile they had set up some proper medical equipment and were working on Tracy and Erika.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 03:29 PM
With sixteen layers of shielding on a capital-grade scale, each with emergency backup power systems, and again the sheer power of the shields compared to military technology, it just wasn't going to happen.

But Angel was trapped inside, for what it's worth... probably.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 24 2014, 03:35 PM
Reinforcement in the forms of tanks, choppers, and more men were on the way. They finally realized the bombardment was going nowhere, and ceased fire... though a larger army was amassing outside, and they had called in more strategists to try and find a weak spot.

***

Meanwhile, in another part of the world, several missiles were fired at Firehawk's location, which they were for now able to track. Long range missiles of course, traveling several miles at extremely fast speeds. A normal magicer probably wouldn't be able to sense them coming till it was far too late.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 03:42 PM
Firehawk's location, in fact, had not moved in a long time. He had been on an isolated farm since he disappeared hours ago. Quite suspicious.

***

Any 'strategists' they brought in wouldn't know what they were looking at to begin with - Angel had the only records of the Advent on the planet, which included the flagship she called home now, and even if they did have records of the Advent, they wouldn't have schematics of the vessels, which were never made public. The Unity hive mind knew all, no one else did. So pretty much any way you look at it, they wouldn't be able to find a 'weak spot' on the Halcyon for sheer lack of information.

There were weak spots, of course. But it's not like Angel's gonna tell them.

Meanwhile, in the Capitol building, the military leadership had been evacuated to a bunker where they were coordinating the operations. All oversees assets were being put on high alert and any weapons or technologies previously considered to be "never use" status were not being brought to the table for consideration. Needless to say, Angel, one person, did not have a monopoly on all the tech scatted about this planet. Salvage from the SE, Corpathians and many others had been recovered over the years and carefully hidden away so the wrong hands could not access it.

It appeared the wrong hands had all the technology they could ever want anyway.

In any case, Army Intelligence offices across the nation and world were abuzz with activity, gathering all relevant data on the current crisis, both the one created by Harrinton and the one created by Angel, as if they were any different at this point to many people.

The order eventually came down from the top not to attack Angel's mansion, ship or anything on the premises any further until all options had been considered. For now, it wasn't moving, nor were their attacks doing anything, so there was no rush. However, locating Firehawk and Remus, who both did indeed have files on them, was now a high priority. And unlike previous folk who tried to take them out, they were wanted brought in only one way: Dead.

On a much lighter note, Cassidy had gotten back with and broken up with her ex-boyfriend in a matter of five minutes. Again.

Erika let the EMTs take care of the shrapnel in her arm, but refused to let them near the ones in her torso. She was refusing to take off her shirt so they could look, saying something about how they had to at least buy her dinner first. The wounds seemed to have mostly stopped bleeding anyway, and there was nothing they could do without her consent so they humored her for now.
    Her phone rang again, and this time she answered it.
    "Lauren. Hi. What's up?" Her voice sounded a little strained and fake-cheery.
    Back at Erika's apartment, Lauren picked up on that but didn't mention it. "There were a couple people at your place a bit ago."
    "Who? What did they want?"
    "A man and a woman. Said they were tourists and wanted to borrow my phone to call a ride, but they didn't. The number they called was right next door. They've also apparently been to half the pizza places in the area, so they've been here a while."
    Ah. The car thieves. Figures. "You let them eat my pizza, didn't you."
    "Aye...It seemed like the polite thing to do."
    "Fuck manners. That was my dinner."
    "Was."
    "...Did the woman have big eyes and pointy teeth?"
    "Aye...You know them?"
    "Nope."
    Lauren was silent for a few seconds. "They were asking questions about you."
    Erika waved the EMTs off and walked a ways away, still watching Angel's ship. "And?"
    "I didn't tell them anything they couldn't find out themselves, but I think you should be careful, Erin. They could be annoying."
    Erika didn't reply to that. Of course they could be annoying; they were neighbors. "Did they use your cell?"
    "Aye."
    "Were you watching them?"
    "No, she left the room."
    "You'll have to destroy your phone; she could have bugged it."
    Lauren groaned. "Come on, I just got this one! It's brand new. And she was only gone for like, five seconds."
    "I can bug a phone in three." Erika stated.
    "I checked under the case and inside; there's nothing there."
    "Numpty. Get rid of it."
    "No! They didn't seem sharp enough to do that anyway. Where would they even get a bug?"
    Erika facepalmed, and Lauren could tell what she was doing from the silence. "Laurie..."
    "I need this phone. I just had a job interview and I gave them this number." Lauren argued. "They won't be able to call me and I won't get the job."
    "It doesn't-" The phone beeped in Erika's ear. Lauren had hung up.

Uriah answered the phone with his name.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 24 2014, 08:47 PM
"Uriah. This is Angel Grace," came the familiar voice, "We are making a terrible mistake."

The sound in the background was... nothing. No ambient noise whatsoever. Not even breathing.

***Misty Valley***

Firehawk lay on a stone slab, makeshifted as an altar. Much of his blood had been drained from him at some isolated farm, by choice, to rid himself of the elixir Angel injected him with so she could track him.

Harrington knelt in front of the slab, hands folded in a devious prayer, a red aura about him as he projected the Darkness from himself into Firehawk in an effort to save his newest disciple's life, an effort that showed no sign of failing yet.

In the immediate background, Remus was watching the sky. He was looking at some smoke signals being cast somewhere far away, and he was reading them. He'd been doing so for a half hour almost. At last they ceased.

"Harrington."

With frightening speed for such a large, mostly-mechanical being, Harrington shot up from his stance, his back to Remus.

"The tenacity to interrupt my meditation... I have killed lesser beings for possessing it," he said.

Undeterred, Remus presented the news.

"Angel Grace and the Military seem to have fallen out."

At this, Harrington turned his head, one eye looking at Remus.

"The Ministry has confirmed an assault on - and the destruction of - her residence," Remus specified, "If she is not dead, she has retreated to her vessel."

"She will be trapped in that vessel," Harrington started to speak, "If the Military destroyed her home, they must have a presence there. The mortals will be looking for her. She cannot escape."

"She lacks... the destructive mindset... of us..." Firehawk coughed up from the slab, "Use that... to our advantage..."

Harrington and Remus shared a look.

"Perhaps the little one may be useful yet," Harrington conceded, "That vessel is a weapon. The greatest technological masterpiece left in this world. We too have a weapon."

"You suggest bribery?" Remus inquired.

"Her weapon can be controlled. Ours cannot be stopped. Once it gains a footing, nothing, not even us, will be able to control it," Harrington clarified, "Hm..."

Remus stood silent.

"Sorgi is gone. I no longer feel his connection to me. The Chosen One must have the Urn, rendering our original task impossible."

Remus let out a hiss of air that sounded like a snarl.

Firehawk wheezed and coughed again.

"Destroy enough of a person's valued possessions, they will break," Harrington went on, "Eradicate the free world, she will have no choice but to face us."

Remus nodded slightly. He seemed to like this plan.

"Then - and only then - do we unleash the Space Demon."

"I'm not surprised, given that most of us don't know what the fuck we're doing." Uriah responded. "What's going on?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 04:50 PM
"We have played right into the enemy's hands, so to speak. The Military wants me dead, and neither of us can stop the Lord of Darkness before it is too late, alone. Our unwillingness to cooperate may have just brought about the apocalypse. The Military is walking right into a trap. You have to stop them!"

***

Meanwhile, at the isolated farm where most of Firehawk's blood, and the trace elixir, lay splattered about, the missiles struck, destroying a wealthy Union leader's farm, and destroying his and his family's bodies in the process. If any evidence of FH's rampage was left before, it wasn't there now.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 25 2014, 05:13 PM
As the two were speaking, a man in plainclothes and an overcoat walked into the building, flashing an Army Intelligence badge to get past the guards. He paused in the entryway of the room Uriah was in and leaned against the doorframe, deciding to listen in on the conversation for the moment.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 25 2014, 05:23 PM
Uriah acknowledged the man with a small nod, but continued his conversation with Angel.
    "What are you talking about?" Uriah asked. "Why would the military want you dead? And who exactly is 'we?'"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 05:30 PM
"I'm sure you'll hear about it on the news enough times around," Angel remarked in reference to the first question, then the second; "And 'we' being myself and the Military. We were unable to work together in the face of a great threat. Now that threat has exactly what he wants - disorder, chaos, and confusion. They'll never see him coming. I can't stop him in time, if I can at all, especially if I'm trapped in my ship for fear of execution should I leave it."

...

"It's a stressful situation, you know?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 25 2014, 05:33 PM
"Is that Crossroads?" the military man, who Uriah might recognize as Major Fielder, who had worked with him and Karen during the CCG situation, needlessly asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 25 2014, 05:35 PM
Uriah answered Fielder without addressing him. "Miss Crossroads, you cannot counter confusion by creating confusion." Uriah said, somehow not sounding impatient. "It's not on the news yet, and if I'm going to help you I need to know what happened now."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 05:42 PM
Angel sighed.

"Karen determined that I was withholding information, and ordered the men to arrest me," Angel started in a calm tone, which did not change throughout the speech, "I realized that Harrington cannot be stopped with me in jail, so I struck the men down. Karen tried to kill me, so I killed her, and Officer Sir. Tracy was seriously injured in the crossfire, Erika had minor wounds, and Sakura had an emotional breakdown."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 25 2014, 07:16 PM
There was a brief silence before Uriah replied. "You implied before that Harrington was responsible."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 07:21 PM
"No, I did not. This is the kind of communication that got those men and Karen killed," was Angel's reply in the same calm voice, "Harrington wanted us to do what we did. We did not have to do it. He had no influence on it. But make no mistake - the biggest profit of this day goes to him, and the biggest loss goes not to me, not to the Government or the Military, but the safety of mankind on this planet."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 25 2014, 07:27 PM
"We." Uriah said flatly. "You killed a dozen people for doing their jobs, and now you're blaming them for it. You cannot protect mankind while disregarding the value of the individuals who make it."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 07:38 PM
"I realize it sounds insane. I don't expect you to understand. A part of me doesn't want you to understand. But someone out there has to know," Angel reiterated, then, presuming the conversation wasn't cut short right there, went on; "With me put away, I know what they are going to do. They're going to go after the Dark Three... or maybe just Firehawk and Remus. Perhaps they do not yet realize what he is capable of. Killing Firehawk is a start, but ending the life of Remus will compound the situation further.

"Remus may be a Demon, he founded and led a galactic superpower for many years, and went toe-to-toe with the best the multiverse has ever seen on the battlefield... but there is a reason he has always bowed to Harrington. With Remus dead, Harrington will see to his plans himself. And as the last - and the first - of the great Sith Eternals, the thought of him going it alone frightens even me. Remus has always been the sensible of the two. with him gone, Harrington will rage, and he will regress into the dark depths that Sith can only dream of."

Fielder took it and spoke immediately.

"Ms. Grace, this is Bart Fielder from Army Intelligence. I wish to inform you that General Sherman wishes to speak with you before the situation escalates further. If you have video communication, it would be preferable, however a phone call with suffice." he informed her in an officious tone.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 25 2014, 07:50 PM
Five minutes later, Angel was staring across a screen at General Gregory Sherman, head of the military and its provisional government. He was a big man, being rather overweight and relatively tall. He has a big, bushy walrus mustache and glasses.

"We are long past the pleasantries, Ms. Grace." the general greeted her in his low, deep voice, "So I will get to the point. I will allow you to relay your case for one final time, but after that I will lay out how things are going to be. Begin."

Clearly, whether they'd known it before or not, it was now getting around to everyone in the military just who Angelica Crossroads really was.

Post by: JA-394 on May 25 2014, 07:56 PM
Angel wasn't looking at them through a 'screen', she was looking at them through a holo-teriminal. Angel herself, meanwhile, was sporting a Psi-Tech armored exo-suit, with her two Voidsabres and dual-disintegrators on her belt. She was ready for... something...

In her background was nothing. Totally black.

"What else do you want me to say?" Angel asked Sherman, "They tried to arrest me. You can't stop Harrington without me. I perceived them as a threat to not only me but my friends. I struck them down. All of them. And now we run the risk of Harrington destroying us all."

"I've listened to the recordings. I've been briefed on the situation. Those men were doing their jobs and you murdered them. Your friends were removed from the mansion by our men, with injuries caused by you. So I suggest you stop being disingenuous with me." the general growled, "You've committed a capital crime in murdering those men and whether we determine it to simply be a criminal murder or an act of war, it matters little. In addition to that there is suspicion of conspiracy to murder General McSweezy and maintaining a significant off-the-record arsenal. It would seem that you might be the one plotting to conquer the world yourself."

The general did not give pause for Angel to reply to this however.

"Nobody, not you, not our ex-president, not the common scum on the street, is above justice. We realize that there is a grave threat out there, and we are already mobilizing to stop it. If you are so concerned about this threat, then you will be willing to cooperate fully. And that means this: You must unconditionally surrender yourself, your vessel, your weapons and any and all information you have on this matter. You will work directly with our men, providing anything and everything they need to fight and defeat this menace, whether it be your resources, knowledge or fighting ability. Once the enemy has been put down, you will be held accountable for your own crimes."

He paused to let that set in.

"If you truly value saving people and our society, you need to put their needs above your own. If you refuse, you are turning your back on everything that we've fought for to this point. This is your choice Angel Grace, who do you fight for. The common good... or yourself?"

The general leaned back and let out a final statement: "It is your call."

"It is not," Angel replied immediately, "There are things in this vessel that mankind shall never see. I would rather destroy it than see you possess it. As Sting said in 14 BTC, 'The greatest force in the world is that of the unknown. Once man confronts and conquers the unknown, man is no longer man. Man is God.' This ship is the Unknown. Supernatural properties abound here, technologies that can make one live forever. I can't let you have this vessel. If it means I have to work against you to stop Harrington, I will do just that, even if I must bring the Coronata out from under this earth."

"And some things are not meant to be possessed by only one man or woman. We have found many, which have been carefully hidden away or destroyed so that they could not be used by the wrong people. But you appoint yourself God by keeping these things only to yourself for your own purposes. If we have to destroy your ship, and you, to see to it that our people are protected from the terror you could unleash, then we will. If you expect an entire nation to follow you blindly, with no explanation why..."

Sherman shook his head.

"...Then you truly consider every sentient on this planet to be an inferior being. You take us all for fools and threaten and murder us when we choose not to be. No more."

The general stood up.

"If that is your final answer, then you leave me with no choice but to declare you a terrorist, guilty of treason against the Confederate Republic, and an enemy at war with our nation."

He paused to allow Angel one final chance to change her mind.

Suddenly their transmission was interrupted. A third image entered the conversation, but it was dark one. Tracking devices would not be able to locate it - it was not running on technology.

"Well, well, well, what do we have here?" a ghastly mechanical voice cut in, "Enemies at war? Have I lived to see the day?"

A brief stint of terrifying mechanical laughter followed.

"General Sherman, you certainly do have a... peculiar... arrangement in your power structure. You should be thanking this young woman for her patronage."

Angel's expression was one of legitimate shock. She was speechless.

Sherman's face was set in stone. The timing was too convenient. Also, since this transmission was likely sent through magic, it never actually made it through on Sherman's end. He only heard what was said through audio feedback on Angel's side.

"You seem to desire that we not go to war." he replied, "Almost as though our being on her side somehow plays into your plan. Or perhaps you are part of her plan. It does not matter. You have both made your intentions very clear. This conversation is finished."

With that, Sherman cut the transmission and walked away from the screen.

Harrington's dark image looked at Angel.

"Now that he is gone, what do you have to say for yourself, Chosen One?"

"I know your plan," Angel got over her speech depravity, "I don't care who gets in my way. I know what you can do. The Military will be swept aside, just like all the others were."

"Ah, finally a child who knows her history..." Harrington mused, "You are of course familiar with -"

'Adapt or-'"

"'Perish.'"

Angel stood in silence.

Harrington laughed again.

"Yes, yes, you indeed do possess the Urn. The great power is now yours. So tell me... you know you will never be accepted back into this world, even if you succeed. Why should you try?"

"Some things are worth dying for," Angel answered in a heartbeat, "I'd rather die for a good cause than for tyranny."

"What's the difference?" Harrington asked of her, "You call yourself a God. You possess Godly power over the land, technology to change the world. But you will not use it for what you perceive as good. Why?"

Angel didn't really have an answer.

"I will tell you why; you are afraid. Afraid of the power you possess. Afraid it may fall into the wrong hands. You know, as I do, that the ancients, you, me, and Remus, have possessions about us that if mankind today were to grasp, they would destroy themselves with, or, as you said, become 'God.' We have more in common than you think, Angel. Much more."

Again, Angel didn't know what to say. She knew he was right...

"Now then, with due respect, I have a proposition for you..."

Angel looked up at the dark image.

"Your ship is the greatest technological weapon on this planet. Not even a nuclear bomb can decimate it," Harrington spoke.

"Yes... yes it is," Angel decided to play along.

"I too have a weapon," he went on, "Of the living variety. One that once unleashed, cannot be stopped, nor controlled. It possesses a power not seen since the earliest days of galactic travel. You. You will unleash it."

"Fat chance," Angel spat.

"Or... you will rise your ship from the ground, as you stated, and you will do its work for me."

Angel glared at him like he was crazy.

Insane, rather.

"You will never ride with the people of this planet again. Join us, Chosen One, and we can build a lasting legacy. Together, we will shape mankind in the face of humanity - and peace will at last befall this savage world."

With that, the dark image evaporated, leaving Angel alone, who immediately shut off her holoterminal.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 25 2014, 09:27 PM
Sherman returned to the command room, where the military leadership was assembled.

"Angel Grace has betrayed us." he informed the group as a whole, "At the least, she values maintaining her own power over helping us. At the worst, she may be behind this entire plot. However, we'll allow her to act first while we build up our forces. If her intentions are to defeat this Harrington, she'll move against him, wherever his is holed up. She'll lead us too him and do our dirty work for us. Our job will then simply be damage control; limiting civilian causalities and cleaning up the mess after."

He looked around the room.

"But if her intents are not so benevolent, then she will move against us, or the citizens. For this reason, we need make sure all of our units are on constant alert and ready to move. It will be necessary, in either case, to bring out the blacklisted items for usage. But we must exercise caution! If we defeat them, but one of these weapons falls into the hands of terrorists, then we'll be at a crisis point all over again. These weapons must only be used against the identified threats and must be destroyed if compromised. Get to work."

Sherman stepped away from the table and looked at a large map on a touch screen built into the wall.

"I hoped I wouldn't have to see the day when the Era of Anarchy returned." he muttered to himself.

He shook his head.

"I won't. We'll either pull through or we'll all be dead." he thought of the military, especially its command structure, "I only feel for those few poor devils who will live to be under the whims of bloodthirsty sorcerer and demon bastards."

    Several hours earlier...

    Zin's shoulder hit the wall, catching himself from falling, seconds after he'd teleported. His hands were numb and his face felt clammy. He reached out and grabbed the counter, pulling himself to the sink where he then threw up. He felt as though Darkness was literally pulsing through his veins. He knew this would happen, but he'd had no idea it would be this severe. His use of the complicated spell that was teleportation seemed to have greatly intensified it. To the others, back at Angel's mansion, it probably looked like he had dissipated the dark energy - in reality, he had merely suppressed it, as dealing with it properly would take longer and be painful.
    He wiped bile from the corner of his mouth while whispering a spell to himself, before digging through some of his possessions, most of which were still terribly disorganized in this cramped building. He eventually found what he was looking for, an empty bottle, a full bottle, a knife, and salt.

    A few hours earlier...

    Though feeling starved and dehydrated, Zin allowed himself no food nor water. He clumsily dropped one bottle and the bloodied knife into the sink. He heard the bottle shatter, but he didn't particularly care. He'd done all he could - all that was left for his mind and body to rebuild and recover themselves naturally. Or so he hoped anyway, as he stumbled to a couch, inadvertently toppling a stack of books as he passed.

    One hour earlier...

    Zin's dreamless sleep came to an abrupt end at the ringing of his phone. His eyes shot open and he tried to recall where he'd left his phone.
    Coat pocket.
    Coat?
    It was in a heap on the floor.
    It rang a second time. Had to be Angel, she's the only one with the number. And one does not simply ignore a phone call from Angel...
    The dilapidated sorcerer sat up on the couch he'd been laying on. He still felt terrible, but it was manageable now. He found his coat, then his phone, which had not rung a third time. Whoever it was hung up - whoever it was being, apparently not Angel, he noted. The caller ID could identify Angel, but it could not identify who had called moments ago, nor would it allow him to call back. Had he imagined it? No, it was right there on the screen, get your head straight. Zin briefly considered going back to bed - he certainly wanted to anyway - but no, he'd slept long enough, and a random blocked phone call had to mean... something. Next up, sink.
    The sink had blood, shattered glass, and traces of vomit laying at the bottom. Lovely. He quickly washed his face, and gathered his bearings and few needed possessions.

    Present time...

    Marissa was pacing back and forth about the new living room, fingers in a flurry of unproductive movement, flicking and tapping against each other. Kyle was watching the news on a television. Samantha and the husband were standing side by side talking in hushed tones. Zin lowered his monocular. They were safe - for now. He knew the police protection force wouldn't be able to stand up to Firehawk, Remus, or even Angel. A strange, but sadly possible and even likely reality, that Angel had completely slipped, as he had feared. Still, second hand news wasn't proof enough for one such as Zin. Thus far he'd been unable to locate any of her friends save for the Raynes, but he didn't plan on wasting much more time. He'd confront her and see for himself what had transpired during his sleep.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 26 2014, 06:19 AM
As the Raynes were watching the news, the broadcast was interrupted by breaking news:

General Sherman was issuing a message to the public from his bunker. In front of a camera with only concrete walls behind him, the General began with a typical "my fellow citizens we've had a tragedy" type of greeting. But once these pointless words were out of the way, the true nature of the public notice became apparent.

"Earlier today, the known magic-using terrorist, named the Firehawk, destroyed the Everson Bridge connecting Fort Johnson to the mainland. Almost two dozen people were killed in the attack. We have reason to suspect he is working with an individual named Remus Von Grath, an ancient being said to possess a great deal of supernatural power. Both of these individuals are a threat to society and any information on them or their whereabouts will be most appreciated."

Sherman again allowed a pause as he prepared to change subjects.

"Now, it is my regret to inform you of another unfortunate tragedy. Angel Grace, thought to have been killed last autumn, has been found to be alive and well. Unfortunately, the one-time hero has turned to a life of deceit, murder and intimidation. Only a few hours ago, Angel Grace murdered nineteen soldiers and law enforcement agents, including retired LAW Warden Karen Mills. She has expressed her intention to act outside of justice and her motives are not yet clear. As with Firehawk and Von Grath, we will gladly accept any relevant information on Angel Grace."

Sherman again paused, which appeared to be a personality trait, when he wanted it to be. As he paused, the screen began to flash images of Firehawk, Remus and Angel, the latter in both her forms.

"We strongly recommend you avoid direct contact with any of these individuals. If you see any of them, notify the authorities immediately but do not approach them."

Once the images had been given time to sink in, the screen returned to Sherman.

"I know times have been trying for all of you, but through it all we've persevered. Too many people have worked too hard and sacrificed too much for the Confederate Republic to submit to the demands of supernatural terrorists. They think they've already won... Well... Let's show them what ordinary people are capable of! God bless and protect you all!"

With that, the screen turned to informational messages related to recruitment for security forces and advisories to follow the directions of any military or law enforcement personnel encountered.

***

The next day, the Rayne family, after asking the military multiple times, was finally put in contact with Tracy and Sakura at the hospital. (One of the ones that had not been burned down with lava!) Tracy now had a bandage across her face, covering her cheek and ear, in addition to her almost entire left side being bandaged. She seemed really down in the dumps initially, though she'd warmed up slightly upon seeing friendly faces.

Eventually, the question arose about exactly what happened. Tracy explained the situation with Bearer, with Sakura no doubt occasionally putting in some input. But then it came to the return to the basement...

"So Angel somehow used some sort of magic power to drag Sakura there from wherever she was, to display how she planned to capture Firehawk. Eventually they started arguing, but then Mills told Angel she hadn't heard enough information to go with Angel's plan. Angel wasn't really being helpful as she kept saying we couldn't nobody could do anything without her and stuff. She really wasn't explaining her full plan or what was really going on... Then Angel made some comment about... cutting off the one cop guy's hands or something and kept refusing to give any more information. So that guy ordered the troops to arrest Angel..."

Tracy trailed off at this point.

Post by: Rattler on May 26 2014, 05:11 PM
"She's... she too focused on her goal," Sakura said with a sigh. She was still an emotional wreck as well, but seeing friends was helping a bit.
"I don't even know what her plan was at all. And... she had enough sense not to go after the soldiers that were pulling us out... but I think she's got a serious case of tunnel vision. Focused on her goal and not what's going on around her."

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 26 2014, 05:20 PM
    "Do you think... do you think the urn did something to her? Changed her?" Marissa theorized after a few moments of stunned silence.
    "It must have. The Angel I knew would never have done that." Kyle added.

"I... I don't know," Sakura admitted. "If it did... that was before I got pulled over there. But she kept quoting some guy named Sting."

Post by: Tyler294 on May 26 2014, 06:12 PM
"I don't think that's even Angel at all." Tracy suggested, "Marissa, do you remember when we were searching for Eleanor in her basement thing... Right before you... lost it... We found a tank with a body in it. It was Angel's old body... What Angel really is dead and this person is an imposter preserving her body in that vat so she can steal memories from it or something?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 26 2014, 06:16 PM
    Marissa thought about it. She didn't remember it, but the suggestion wasn't surprising or shocking to her the way it was to Kyle, as if it still was in her mind somewhere, somehow.
    "You found Angel's body... in a tank..." Kyle repeated, thinking this theory actually made a lot of sense, in a strange way.

"I don't know... but... whoever that person is has a lot to answer for. She had a demonic zoo right under my bedroom for God knows how long and never told me! Then this Harrington shows up in her basement! She's hiding something..." Tracy ranted, her voice sounding a bit crazed and very conspiratorial.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 26 2014, 06:49 PM
The Rayne kids thought about it a while longer.
"Could this... have been going on since she 'died' that first time?" Marissa asked, "While I was gone I mean? I wasn't there but it was on the news."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 26 2014, 06:51 PM
Sakura shrugged and shook her head. She honestly didn't know.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 26 2014, 06:52 PM
"That's what I think!" Tracy exclaimed, "This imposter killed Angel and took her place! Maybe she works for this Harrington and she's been trying to lead us into a trap!"

Tracy's vital signs all took a spike at that.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 26 2014, 06:53 PM
"Tracy! Calm down!" Sakura insisted, putting a hand on Tracy's arm.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 26 2014, 06:56 PM
Tracy had to take some deep breaths as her vital signs leveled out.

"I'm sorry... I'm just... pissed off." Tracy replied, "It's hard to stay positive when you've lost everything but the tattered bloody clothes on your back."

No doubt everyone know by now that Angel's mansion had been destroyed.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 26 2014, 07:01 PM
    "Still got us at least... for whatever that's worth." Marissa murmured.
    "And we've still got you - yesterday they wouldn't tell us what was going on or what happened to you too... I'd thought the worst had happened." Kyle added.

"It nearly did." Erika said as she walked stiffly into the room. "Hi, guys."
    Her right arm was in a sling and there were two small bandages on her face, one on her forehead and the other on her right cheek. She had an IV port still in her arm but not attached to anything. Other than that, she seemed fine. She was wearing hospital pajamas but carrying her usual backpack in her left hand.

Whatever sappy response Tracy might have had for the Raynes' remarks had been cut off. Instead she just smiled weakly at Erika and waved her right hand in greeting, then looked back at the Raynes.

"I just hope we'll all be together again soon."

Angel sat at the bridge of her ship, meanwhile, looking at the old map of the stars and galaxies. The newfound knowledge was rattling to her. She never would have guess what kinds of things were out there. The things the Shadow Empire tried to protect, and the Sentinel to unleash. It was amazing. And none of this was in the SE Database. It made her wonder what else had been left out...

Or perhaps nothing was left out. Perhaps someone had erased something...

Briefly taking that into account, but uncharacteristically dismissing the possibility, Angel was about to go fetch herself some water or something to calm her nerves, when Harrington appeared on her frontal display, his background obstructed by a great fire in the midst of blackness.

"Remember when, Angel? Remember when you called this home?" he stated more than asked, "Of course you do. You never want to go back. But this is where you shall spend your eternal days if you allow your fellow inhabitants of this pitifully underachieving world to lay their hands on you."

Angel looked down at the floor, not making eye contact.

"I... I know..."

She glanced behind her at her former body, which she had moved up here, farther from the blast zones during the initial bombardments. It was still sealed away.

"If I was what I once was, I might be insane enough to leave this vessel and find you, and try to end you, face-to-face. But I know the whole world is looking for me. Everyone is my enemy now. You, the government, the armed forces, even my friends. I can't trust anyone."

If Harrington could smile, he would.

"So self-aware. You know they will never take you back. But, if you will pertain my curiosity for just a moment... why have you repossessed your 'former self' as you said it so eloquently?"

"You think I didn't see this coming?" Angel asked, a bit of a smirk on her face, "After I end you and your Ministry, this;

She gestured to the body.

"Is my ticket to freedom."

Harrington chuckled.

"You certainly do have a penchant for the impossible. But this is truly outrageous. If you think a corpse will be able to save you from the wrath of the damned -"

"Just wait and see, Heathen," Angel spat, growing visibly frustrated, both at her predicament and the Sith Lord who had all the answers.

Harrington glared at her.

"Be thankful I am willing to take you under my wing and not destroy you outright," he snarled.

"You need me. I know that. You can't afford to let me die," she retorted, "If they come for me, so will you. I get to choose who wins."

Harrington was a little surprised.

"This... is not what I expected out of Bearer's "beautiful daughter," he swiped at his old enemy and her both, "No. This is what I would expect out of a woman who knows she is going down, and is determined to take everyone with her."

Again, a smirk appeared.

"Doubtful. But then again, perhaps not. What are you going to do about it from there? You can't get to me, and I certainly can't get to you."

"This is what I am going to do about it," Harrington issued an ultimatum, "You have five days to act. On the sixth day, I will act."

With that, Harrington was gone.

The transciever was never on.

Early the next day...

Angel felt a familiar presence behind her on the bridge... or wherever it was she was on the ship.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 07:36 PM
It was indeed on the bridge.

She herself had showered not too long ago, and hadn't put her armor back on yet.

"Hello, Zin."

Zin felt something odd as he stepped onto the bridge with Angel - he felt a second presence. One much lighter in nature, almost identical to Angel's.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 07:40 PM
"Angel." Zin replied curtly, stepping fully into the room, walking closer before coming to a stop about twenty five feet from the anima.

"Explanations have placed me into this mess."

Formerly with her back turned, Angelica turned around.

"More of them will only cloud the truth further."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 07:51 PM
"Are you sure it wasn't the lack of explanation?" Zin asked with a raised eyebrow. If he was feeling any emotion other than curiosity, he was doing a very good job of hiding it. "However I have no intention of repeating conversations already said and done - I am here for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to hear your side. If you will not indulge me, I will have no alternative but to accept our fine Confederate Republic's findings as truth."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 07:56 PM
A spike of disturbing anger visibly flashed across Angelica's face as Zin spoke the line of the Republic.

"What would you have me do, Zin?" she implored him, "A maniacal Sith is bent and has the capability to destroy the world I live in, and these soldiers try to arrest me, even though they can't stop him without me. And now, no one is out there to stop him."

Clearly, something inside her had snapped.

"Now the only thing I can even dream of doing is to sneak out, somehow, find him, kill him, and plant THIS;

She gestured toward the body in the tank.

"At the scene. Do you have a better idea?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 08:03 PM
"Why would the Sith need to destroy your world? You're doing a bang-up job of that yourself."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 08:09 PM
Angel glared at him.

"I don't blow up buildings. I don't target hospitals for arson. I don't do the things that they do for the reasons that they do," she snapped, "If I were the person I once was, we would not be having this conversation. But she is dead. In her place is the realist. Someone who realizes what it will take to stop an ancient power from destroying what is left of this meager existence so that hopefully someday, someone can salvage something from it!"

That's not very Angel-y.

"Harrington wishes to destroy all life on this planet and rebuild. I seek to reform what is."

Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 08:12 PM

"Out with the old -"

She pointed at the tank.

"In with the new!"

She gestured to herself.

"'Adapt or Perish.'! She didn't adapt, she perished!"

...

A few tears rolled down her cheeks.

"Harrington, cannot be stopped, unless we adapt. Not all of us can. Those who do need to rise up and challenge him."

Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 08:27 PM
Angelica was obviously beginning to break down - or perhaps it was a continuation of a previous breakdown - as she closed her eyes, her face contorting.

"You don't know what is going on, Zin!" she screamed, "The things I've done to the world since I locked her away..."

She was fully crying now.

"I think I do understand what's going on. Care to contravene me?" Zin replied coldly, unphased by Angel's outburst or tears.

The Anima fell to her knees, and pointed at the tank.

"She's Angel! I'm Angelica!" she cried in despair, "She was like the Mother I never had! Raised me like I was her own, taught me everything she knew... when she died I had to save her, but I didn't know how... so I stepped into her life. I filled her shoes. But nothing could prepare me for Bearer coming back, and Harrington, and the Urn. She never mentioned any of it... and I... I... I... I disgraced her name! And the body I worked so hard to restore must now be destroyed!"

    Zin was still unphased. Actually the look on his face was one of disgust.
    "Are you attempting to imply that that is Angel Grace's original body?" He asked slowly.

Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 08:46 PM
"No. I don't know what happened to her body. The Unity guided me in my attempts at an exact duplication in the hopes that somehow... her spirit would return... but I've been too afraid to take her out of that tank! What if she's not there?!"

Angelica froze. She'd been caught.

"I can't go to prison, Zin," she stated with fear evident in her voice, "They'll kill me!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 08:59 PM
"No." Zin sighed mournfully, shaking his head. "No they won't..."

Then in an unpredictable(Literally, this action could not be sensed) and instantaneous flash of motion, Zin looked up at her and swiped his arm to the side, wand in hand. Unless she'd somehow blocked it, which we're all sure she did, Angelica's throat was now gaping open and gushing blood.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:03 PM
She blocked most of it, not all of it. Her throat was cut, but not gaping, and it was bleeding, but not gushing.

Course now she had no choice...

From her side came the two Voidsabres, one in each hand, with a telekinetic barrier, for the moment, cutting her off from Zin but also preventing her from moving.

"Zin... don't do this!" she sputtered between coughing fits, eventually suppressing them.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:04 PM
"I do only as I must..." Zin replied as he took up a combat stance, voice sounding pained.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:06 PM
Her eyes fell to the tank between her and Zin. There was no going back now.

"Make another move and I'll destroy it," she said in a low voice, seeming shockingly unphased suddenly about having to fight.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:17 PM
Zin only responded by firing three spells in quick succession, the first a stun spell, one specifically designed for use against magicers, so it worked like Force Blinding on the eyes and momentarily numbed the mind so that magical senses could be used to anticipate or block further attacks, then he followed up with draining spell to sap physical energy, then finished with a telekinetic spear, aimed for the chest.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:23 PM
The barrier was still up, however, so the stun spell was nullified, the sap spell drained the barrier, and the spear punched right through it, leaving Angelica to void it with one of her sabres, almost hitting her wrist. She seemed to not be up to snuff on deflection at the moment.

She spun around on her heel ballerina style and shot a small blast of the Void not at Zin, but at the tank, voiding one side completely and a lot of the fluid but not reaching the body, which spilled out onto the floor.

Another dark flash was already in her eyes, and her sabres. She was about to strike again, this time at Zin, whom she was looking at.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:25 PM
Zin telekinetically grabbed all the liquid off the ground and threw it at Angelica.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:27 PM
The liquid hit her just as she fired the blast. She was washed back in a small flood on her back, almost to the control bridge, as the blast itself found its way through the liquid toward Zin.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:31 PM
Zin dodged and while in mid-spin, redirected the blast at a wall, then flash-froze the liquid at around negative forty degrees as he came out of the spin - that included the liquid still on Angelica.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:34 PM
Some uncharacteristic swearing followed as a brief burst of flames jetted out from Angelica's spot, and another came at Zin from out of nowhere, leaving him time enough to only shield it rather than dodge.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:38 PM
Which he did - though because the flames were magical in nature, he was actually able to absorb their energy, and send them right back at Angelica - and if anyone knows anything about physics, they know that going from extremely cold to extremely hot, or vise versa, in a short period of time is extremely bad for things and usually ends up breaking them.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:44 PM
What, you think Angelica herself was on fire?

...

Oh. That. Eh, whatever.

Angelica was on her feet, but was clearly in a bad way for two reasons - the first of which was the obvious one. The second of which was exactly what Zin was likely afraid of;

The Dark Side.

With a scowl the likes of which a Sith would possess, her body encompassed in a reddish haze, she caught the flames in her hand and blew a wisp of air into them, then shot them back at Zin as a cursed ring... which if he simply jumped, he would avoid easily.

Meanwhile, the body from the tank, if either of them were paying attention, was gone. Neither of them saw it leave.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 09:53 PM
...except that Zin is one to keep a metaphorical eye on things, especially in a combat environment, with his senses, so he was fully aware that it was gone, and would know whether it was a teleport or if it just got up and left.

Probably to Angelica's surprise, he did not jump, or even successfully block the ring of fire. Maybe it was HIS LEGS! No, the ring hit him square in the chest, and sent him flying backwards about fifteen feet where he lay seemingly lifeless on his back.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 09:59 PM
It was a teleport.

***

Angelica did not buy Zin being finished with one singular strike of flames. Her corrupted alter-ego didn't either.

She levitated herself in the air about 7 feet and raised her hands, still holding the active Voidsabres. A triangle above Zin's head and off to his left and right began to glow and spout Force Lightning directly up in the air and around, coming down to the floor gradually. If he didn't move, or her concentration wasn't broken, this Sith ritual was going to kill him in seconds.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 10:15 PM
Clever girl...

Zin used his hands and neck to backflip out of the way and to his feet, finishing the acrobatic move with an upward swipe of the wand, redirecting quite a bit of the lightning up at Angel.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 10:20 PM
Angelica crossed her Voidsabres and did her best to dissipate the lightning, but the sheer force was too much and she was knocked from her lofty perch and thrown back, managing to catch herself before deadly impact, though.

Zin was not electrocuted to death, meanwhile, but Angelica clearly wasn't finished. The Voidsabres crackling with the same lightning they had just dissipated, she threw one of them as a spear across the room at break-neck speed, aimed at his waist.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 10:26 PM
Zin's special eyes widened in shock. With heavy steps he staggered three feet back, wood clattering against metal as his wand fell from his grip. He slowly tilted his head downward to look at the empty space that occupied where the area surrounding his navel used to be.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 10:34 PM
Angelica's Voidsabre returned to her hand as she eyed the fallen wizard with a resentful stare.

"I told you not to do this," she stated, showing no emotion at all, sounding quite unlike the voice Zin had grown accustomed to since her return. A bit deeper and lower-pitched, but still feminine.

The Dark Side coursing throughout her body, which she used like a super-adrenaline, was beginning to wear off, and she beginning to shake a little. Oddly enough, using the Darkness seemed to have healed her rather than hurt her worse than what she had claimed previously.

"I wish it didn't have to be this way."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 28 2014, 10:35 PM
As soon as the sabre was removed Zin dropped to his knees. He slowly blinked once, then collapsed backwards, dead.

Post by: JA-394 on May 28 2014, 10:42 PM
Angelica stared at the body for a few moments, then came over to it and stabbed it in the heart, the easy ticket to void the corpse so she didn't have to look at it.

Just then did she notice the body was missing...

***

Said body, currently, was in the ship's armory, throwing up violently while scrambling together a few things - a cyan Sabre, an Advent laser pistol, and a copy of the ole' utility wear.

...

You'll see later.

Tracy's phone rang. The caller I.D. was Angel Grace.

Not Angelica Crossroads as had been the customary for quite some time.

But Angel Grace.

It's too bad Tracy dropped her cell phone in Angel's ship.

Sakura probably did too come to think of it...

Well, I suppose this means Angel might hear a phone ring echoing through the halls of her vessel.

    Kyle did so - this was the first time he'd been allowed to come in person - and apparently it wasn't just a social call.
    "It's Marissa. She's three rooms down from here." Kyle replied, making a gesture at the door as he sat down on a nearby chair.

Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 10:13 AM
"About as good as I can be for having a couple dozen holes in my body." Tracy replied, with a slight smile.

It still hurt to move her face too much due to the wound on her cheek, but that one was relatively minor compared to the deeper punchers in her torso. She'd been lucky no vital organs had been damaged beyond saving.

Sakura stirred in her spot and opened her eyes. It took her a minute to wake up enough to see who had come in.
"Kyle?" she asked, sounding like she was still half asleep. And considering she had fallen asleep in an uncomfortable chair...
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

Upon the line falling dead a bolt of lightning struck the spot Miss Grace had just been standing. Going from memory, she tried Zin, having no idea he was dead yet.

Upon another dead line, she had to cease her momentum completely to avoid a burst of electricity appearing from out of nowhere in front of her. Spinning around, she briefly engaged the body she used to inhabit in a sabre clash before telekinetically throwing it 30 yards back down the hallway.

The opportunity to escape was not wasted. Angel ducked into a nearby corridor, just as a blast of the Void hit a nearby wall.

***

After trying Sakura's number and, predictably, getting no luck, she tried Karen's number, in the hopes that what she just knew had happened hadn't happened. But it did happen, so of course Karen didn't answer.

Quickly running out of options, she tried Kyle, whom she thought might not answer if he did even have his phone.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 01:23 PM
"Eh?" Sakura said as she pulled out her phone, that had actually been on her belt. Checking the Caller ID on the missed call, she did a double take. Shaking her head to wake up a bit, she redialed, wondering if she was seeing things.

Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 01:28 PM
Upon hearing her own line buzz, Angel cut off Kyle's ringing end and picked up, already knowing who it was.

"Sakura!" she spoke, not in the voice Sakura was accustomed to by now, but the slight echoing, pitched tone she used before she died, "The Urn possessed me and I just broke free! What's happening?!"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 01:29 PM
"Either you got drunk on power, or this is the biggest prank ever..." Sakura deadpanned as she got up and went out into the hallway.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 01:36 PM
An explosion in the background, which on Angel's end was a giant fireball obliterating a coolant tank, sending a shockwave through a large radius and sending her to the floor, and causing a gasp, followed.

"The elevator!" she sputtered, "It took control in the elevator. I couldn't resist it. I was a prisoner in my own head. I didn't know what I was doing, and I still don't! I'm back in my old body, and my new one is still possessed and is trying to KILL ME!"

A second explosion shook the line, this one was a shockwave cast by the Urn-controlled body, which Angel barely avoided.

Figuring out who Sakura must be talking to from her response, Kyle whispered 'Just a minute' to Tracy, before standing up and following Sakura into the hall.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 01:53 PM
Sakura closed her eyes. Right now she didn't know what to believe. But her frustration found an outlet and revealed itself rather dramatically.

"You sent Tracy and me to your place to protect us, only for the same guy you started obsessing about to damn near kill us! Hell... he killed JACK! And then... not only do I get a load of CRAP from your father, I get sent to stay with Marissa, again to protect me when Eleanor is STILL OUT THERE WITH A HEAD INJURY!"

Yea... she really needed to vent.

"And then when I happen to catch a lucky break and maybe get a lead on Eleanor, you and your DAMN TUNNEL VISION and quoting some guy I've never heard of goes and pisses off the world, gets Karen killed, and sends Tracy and Erika to the hospital! AND I STILL HAVE NO FRAKKIN' CLUE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!"

She took a deep breath.

"I want to believe you, but right now... I'm going to need a really good reason to after what's happened."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 02:02 PM
There was a brief pause, interrupted by a strike of electricity.

"Would my corpse appease you?" Angel asked of her, "I can just go to the bridge and launch my ship into space. The unspoken barriers out there would kill me, and whatever is attacking me."

She sounded as though she was ready for death. Not afraid of it.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 02:26 PM
For a moment, which came as a surprise to Sakura, she actually considered it.

Probably her Dark Side exposure talking on that one. Still gotta deal with that one of these days.

"No..." she finally said, sounding tired. "You know full well how much experience I have with getting hijacked. Just..."
She trailed off and sighed.

"Just get out of there. Tracy's already written you off, and... and right now I just don't know which way to turn. I'm willing to give you a chance... but right now... I think I'm the only one willing to give it to you..."
She closed her eyes again.

"I've already lost enough people I care about. And you know I don't handle that very well. Don't put your name back on that list. Just... be ready to work to earn everyone's trust again, because... because you kinda screwed everyone over... big time..."

Sakura decided to remind Angel of something they talked about months ago.
"Its one thing to have that capability. Its another to choose how its used," she said. "Consider that a counter to whatever Sting quote you got in mind."

She hung up, closed her cell phone, and leaned agaisnt the wall next to the door with a conflicted look on her face.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 02:36 PM
Angel stared off into space for as long as she could afford to, trying to think of some way to make it right...

Like that was gonna happen.

But when 'Angelica' found her again, slumped against the wall, looking sorry for herself, she was reminded what the real enemy was.

It was a longshot at best.

Angel pulled herself to her feet, summoning her cyan Sabre to her hand. The time for running and doing nothing was over.

"She saved me you know," Sakura said. "Twice. I think I told you about the second time. So I'm kinda wanting to help her in return for that. But..."

She got up off the wall and gestured at herself.

"Look at me. I'm a total wreck. I'm not some skilled freelancer or hero. I'm just... me. Emotionally Compromised, semi trained Force User, and Archaeologist Sakura Keller. And semi trained is a bit of a stretch. I can move a banana or my Omni Tool, maybe something else at best. But more than one thing? Saw how well that worked out..."

Meanwhile, if the Military gathered outside Angel's starship had any energy sensors aimed at it, they would be picking up a massive surge of such energy close to the exterior, near where the trapdoor was, actually, but a floor or two down and off kilter.

The source, of course, was a battle between Anima and a darkened equivalent of herself possessed by an evil power sought by a mad Sith once coveted by a great philosopher.

    Kyle rubbed his eyes. He looked like he hadn't slept in a while.
    "Angel's lied to us so many times I just don't know anymore. Maybe she was possessed. Maybe she wasn't. Either way, thirty people died in her mansion because of it, and hundreds more the previous day were killed when she could've stopped it."

"She saved my life. Twice," Sakura sighed. "I still owe her for that..."

She closed her eyes and turned away.

"If we ever discover how many people Phoenix killed while in my body... would you hold it against me? Possession is a gray area as far as I know. Yes... I would have been physically there, but I had no say in it. I was asleep the whole time. If Angel can fall prey to the same thing I did... I... I just don't know..."

    Kyle was giving Sakura a blank stare. Maybe it was due to being so tired, but he felt like Sakura had just said the same thing twice in a row and his only response he felt like he'd just said... or was his mind playing tricks on him?
    He didn't have much time to think about it though, as his attention was soon drawn to something past Sakura - the sound of commotion, coming from the room he knew Marissa to be in. Without explanation he brushed past Sakura and ran until he reached the doorway.

    The scene before them was chaotic, but not out of control. Marissa lay still on the bed, oxygen mask and IVs still in place, but her cardiac monitor was beeping loudly, displaying dangerously high blood pressure, pressure that seemed to be steadily increasing. Three doctors were moving about her rattling off technical terms, a couple of them drawing syringes. Didn't have to be a medical expert to be able to tell that they were going to try and slow down her heart. Standing as close as they could without being in the way were David and Samantha, both looking like they were on the verge of both tears and throwing up.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 03:48 PM
Sakura froze on the spot.
"Marissa..." Sakura gasped.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 29 2014, 04:03 PM
    With a syringe ready, one doctor leaned forward to inject, her heart rate now well above two hundred beats per minute - just before he could however, Marissa jolted upright into a sitting position, lurching forward with a loud gasp of air, making most people in the room jump slightly. One of the doctors quickly put a hand on her shoulder, both to steady and reassure her, but she didn't notice. She immediately looked down and began grabbing and groping at her stomach area, hyperventilating from the high blood pressure.
    "Marissa, calm down. You're in a hospital." The doctor with a hand on her shoulder said. Both her parents tried to step in but were blocked by the other doctors.
    Still ignoring them, Marissa lifted her shirt and put a hand on her bare belly, as if making sure it was still there. The doctor with the syringe injected it into her IV anyway, as her blood pressure was still dangerously high.
    "Marissa, can you hear me?" The doctor tried again.
    Marissa lowered her shirt and slapped her hand against her sweaty forehead and held it there.
    "She... she- killed him..." She barely let out between breaths.
    "It's okay. You're safe now." Another doctor gently grabbed her other shoulder and the two of them began moving her back into a lying position. Her heart rate was slowly dropping, now back below two hundred. Still too high, but not heart-attack inducing or vein-rupturing high.
    "Not okay... it's not okay... not okay..." She whispered between heavy breaths as she lay on her back, eyes closed again.
    Not allowing the doctors to block her anymore, Samantha pushed past and knelt on the floor beside the bed.
    "Marissa... we're right here with you. We're all here." She said with a tearful smile, taking Marissa's free hand and holding against her own cheek.
    Marissa didn't open her eyes or reply. She just kept breathing, listening to her heart rate slowly inch back down to normal levels. She knew that she was alright physically, or would soon be. As far as her family was concerned it would all be fine. She hadn't died - but she knew that she'd just experienced death.

Sakura closed her eyes and released a breath she didn't know she had been holding. Everything was falling apart. And Eleanor...

Sakura visibly tensed up.

A few moments later, a cloud of Light descended from Angel's ship, somewhere around the area of the trap door, and flew over to the nearest military encampment. It was too thick to see through, and it lasted for less than two seconds. When it dissipated, Angel Grace, the recently-freed one, and the possessed body she used to... well, possess, were in the spot the cloud used to inhabit. The possessed body's hands had been lopped off, presumably by Angel, and the two Voidsabres and Disintegrators were in her arms as well, which she tossed to the ground somewhere away from the both of them then held her hands up to prove she wasn't armed.

The sight was probably a confusing one for the military gathered there.

"You're all... going to DIE!" the one on the ground suddenly shrieked, trying to push itself up with the stumps it had for hands.

The other one looked rather frightened at all the weapons that must now be pointed at her.

"He's going... to destroy... us ALL!" Stumpy shrieked again.

"Can it," Angel shooshed her in a worried tone.

Like that was going to work. She kept shrieking.

Angel took note of this and stepped a few paces from her and echoed her voice loud enough for people to hear, presuming she hadn't been shot at by now;

"Uh... I can explain..."

Uriah was standing guard outside of Marissa's room, watching everything but saying nothing. Erika had just appeared in the doorway, right next to him, and also stayed outside, but a little less silent.
    "What's going on?" She asked...someone.

Sakura turned and started for the door. It was obvious something was bothering her.

"You're going to have a lot of that to do!" the highest ranking officer, a major, snapped, as he and his men moved in closer.

Pointing at "stumpy" he bellowed for his men to tie her up, before he looked back at Angel and ordered her to be cuffed and led to the command tent. Assuming she complied, that's exactly what would happen.

Of course, other military people were still trying to figure out how they got out of the ship. Not that they ever will most likely.

***

Alone in her room, still not able to stand, Tracy sighed in frustration. She didn't know what was going on.

Angel made no effort to resist.

Stumpy, meanwhile, fought tooth and nail with the military as they tried to tie her up, using her powerful legs and her arms like clubs to swat at them, spouting the whole time nonsense about Sting, Harrington, the Urn, a 'Space Demon,' and something about reforming the world in her image.

After a while somebody shot her with a very strong tranquilizer dart.

***

Angel was held just outside the tent, as the major went inside. He came back out with a couple other officers, one of which Angel would recognize as General Braddock. He appeared to be the man in charge, as none of the other officers held the rank of general.

"Miss Grace..." Braddock 'greeted', narrowing his eyes, "You either have a lot of nerve, or I'm making a terrible mistake by not having you shot now."

Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 08:28 PM
"I am only doing what is right," Angel stated forcefully, "I don't know what you did with Stumpy over there. But we are two different entities. Only one of us is sentient. You're looking at her. If you want the rest of the explanation, I can give it to you, but it is rather complicated."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 08:31 PM
"The families of several dozen good men and women would like that explanation, I think." Braddock replied, "But before I listen to any explanation, the same demands we made before still apply."

Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 08:36 PM
"Everything on the ship is yours. On two conditions - number one, use the medical science. Great leaps and bounds can be made. Eternal life is... honestly I find that rather amusing, but what is there can be used for a lot of good things.

"Number two, do not disable the ship. The logic behind that is I think we might need it. I'll tell you during the explanation. Also, disabling it might cause it to explode. I don't want to take that chance."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 08:38 PM
Braddock put a hand to his chin.

"Begin explaining, and be thorough." he then told her.

Someone was holding a sound recorder nearby to make sure everything she said was saved.

Some time a short while later(Hospital time)...

Kyle, presumably with Erika and Sakura in tow, rejoined Tracy in her room.

"Well, we've got bad news, bad news, and good news... which first?" Kyle asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 08:44 PM
"Leave the good news for last. What went wrong now?" Tracy wondered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 29 2014, 08:49 PM
Kyle looked at Sakura.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 08:53 PM
Sakura was looking like she wanted to go somewhere, and still had that look as though something was bothering her.

"I was in the elevator with Bearer, my Father, shortly before this all started," Angel began in clear voice, "As you already know, he forced whatever power was inside the Urn upon me. He was consumed in the process.

"But as whatever it was entered my body, it took over. I lost all control. I was aware of my actions, but I was not actively participating in them. It was like I was watching through a television set. I had no control over my body. I had no power over my mind. I couldn't use my powers to break free. Whatever this was, it took over.

"It spoke of someone named Sting. I don't know who Sting is. I have never heard of a person named Sting. I battled a person named Stinger a long time ago, but Sting is new to me. Yet here I - it - whatever, was preaching Sting like it was the Bible. Next thing I knew I heard several thuds. I didn't know how many, but I knew that it had killed Karen's squad. Then all Hades breaks loose. Karen dies, Sir dies, on the outside it was projecting an image of sorrow... but in my head it was... laughing.

"Then more soldiers arrived, most of them wound up dead. My friends somehow escaped. I don't know how much time has passed since then. It came into my ship and onto the bridge, where this body lay in a tank. After that, I was alive again, but I couldn't move. That - this body was in a stasis. so anyway, throughout this time, this possessed body of mine has had contact with Harrington. He's trying to get her to use my ship to do his work, and his work is to wipe out life on this planet. It refused, and then he talked about a monster. A 'Space Demon' from another time buried somewhere in the world.

"He said if she didn't destroy, he would unleash his Space Demon. That's why I think we need the ship. Anyway, after I don't know how long, one of my closest friends, Zin, arrives. He and this possessed thing get into an argument. It spouts some lies about it being a child of mine, then they fight and..."

Angel suddenly started to choke up, just now realizing what had happened.

"It killed him..."

She had to pause for a moment to regain composure. She knew she was being recorded, after all.

"During the fight, the tank I was in was broken open, breaking me of my physical stasis. I had no weapon, so I had flee. It followed me, found me, and you can figure out the rest."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 09:00 PM
"And you were aware the entire time you were in supposedly in stasis?" Braddock inquired.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 09:05 PM
"It's... complicated..." Angel struggled to think up terms Braddock would understand, "It's one of the medical technologies I have. It induces a physical stasis on a body to regenerate tissue and cells. The brain and mind are still active. It needs work. Don't really have time for it anymore. I can show you the schematics after this is through, but this isn't the time."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 29 2014, 09:09 PM
"Uh... well, Angel Grace just called Sakura and claimed that she was possessed when she killed all those people and activated her ship." Kyle said upon realizing that Sakura wasn't going to say anything. "Which... could be either good news or bad news depending on how you look at it."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 09:14 PM
Sakura blinked before adding to it.
"I don't know if its true or not, but... you guys know my experience on that subject..." she said
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 09:17 PM
"I see. You understand you will be working under the direct supervision of military personnel until we've dealt with this Harrington, after which a very thorough investigation will be made into everything that transpired here. I think it also goes without saying that your ship and weapons will likely remain in military possession even if you are cleared of wrongdoing." Braddock continued.

***

Tracy just blinked at that.

"So... somehow I was right then?"

She turned and stared off into oblivion.

"If it is true... how can I ever trust that anyone is who they say they are?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 09:20 PM
"I... I don't know," Sakura sighed. "I guess we'll have to try and rely on what we know of each other to spot anything that seems off."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 29 2014, 09:21 PM
"And how far back would this supposed possession goes? How long have we been dealing with someone who wasn't Angel?" Kyle pondered.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 09:23 PM
"If it goes back to when Angel died... then we've been fooled a long time."

Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 09:23 PM
"I think she said something about the Elevator..." Sakura trailed off.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 09:25 PM
Tracy blinked again.

"So... her FATHER did it with that pot? That still doesn't absolve her from letting me live above a demonic zoo." she deadpanned.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 09:28 PM
"You'll probably have to ask her about that yourself," Sakura said before biting her lip. "And I can't take this sitting around anymore."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 09:35 PM
"Don't think I don't see what these men are carrying, General," Angel said cautiously, then added, "Antimatter is a disaster waiting to happen if you cannot control it. There is a reason it isn't used on a wide scale anymore. The first time my Mansion was raided, most of those weapons were confiscated. All that remains in the ship are the untested ones. They are marked with a yellow band on the side of their cases. Do not try to handle them without extreme care.

"Now then, how do you expect to find Harrington?" she suddenly asked, "According to my Father he had a hundred hiding spots, and with Firehawk and Remus doing his dirty work, and him potentially about to unleash a monster, you won't be able to find him."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 29 2014, 09:41 PM
"If you have a plan, I invite you to share it." Braddock stated sarcastically.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 10:00 PM
"I'm a prisoner of war. It doesn't work that way," she said firmly, clearly taking a bit of offense to the sarcasm in a time like this, "Now then, if Harrington does indeed have what he calls a 'Space Demon,' which I cannot even fathom what that might be given the circumstances surrounding it, I'd suggest somehow keeping track of as much land as possible, maybe on a geothermal level. If something comes burrowing out of the ground, Harrington might be in the area."

"Are you planning something?" Erika asked Sakura.

"Noted. I assume your ship possesses advanced scanning devices?" Braddock asked.

Post by: JA-394 on May 29 2014, 10:17 PM
"Yes... but uh... the controls for the ship aren't compatible for other species..." Angel admitted, "You'll need me to be on the ship to operate it."

Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 10:36 PM
"Eleanor's still out there," Sakura said. "And I am sick and tired of being told I can't go looking for her."

She took a deep breath.

"I've got a general idea of where she is, and I'm gonna go find her."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 29 2014, 10:42 PM
"Four of the most dangerously powerful people on the planet are also out looking for her; you can't just run off without a plan." Erika said, apparently ignoring Sakura's complaint about people telling her what she can't do.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 29 2014, 11:49 PM
"What do you expect me to do?!" Sakura snapped. "And I'm kinda the 'make it up as you go' type of planner at times."

"Do you wanna face Firehawk alone?" Tracy asked Sakura.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Rattler on May 30 2014, 10:18 AM
"Do you want to leave a seven year old alone out there for Firehawk to find?" Sakura shot back, her frustration at being caged up again boiling over.

"What would you do if you were in my position Tracy?" she asked. "How would you like to be told to pretty much abandon someone, who you've been responsible for, to save your own ass?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Aeliss Novak on May 30 2014, 03:32 PM
"That seven year old broke four of a doctor's fingers without hesitation when he tried to stitch her up." Erika interjected. "Honestly, I'd worry more about you out alone than her. Being responsible for someone means being responsible for yourself first."
    "Besides, bad news might be pertinent." She glanced over at Kyle when she said this.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return

"How so?" Braddock inquired.

"For one, the Advent alphabet has over a thousand digits, numbers, and symbols and no number system of its own compared to Basic's 26 letters and 10 numbers," she stated matter-of-factly, "That ship was built three centuries ago, before my ancestors had any contact with outside species. If it is compatible with other races, I don't know how to do it, and to figure out how would take a very, very long time.

"What I can do is use the master computer aboard the ship. It's at the bridge. You can surround me with an armed escort if you like. I'll keep you up to date on whatever you need me for. And one more thing - please don't take my clothes and my sewing utensils. Those are part of my heritage and I would quite like to keep them."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 30 2014, 06:29 PM
"Yeah... the other bad news... is that Zin is dead." Kyle said in reply to Erika's prompt.

Sakura recoiled in surprise.
"What?" she asked.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 30 2014, 06:41 PM
Tracy blinked again.

"How?"

***

"I see. You'll be expected to follow orders in how you operate the ship, then." Braddock warned, "Remember, you are a citizen, or were, rather, not an officer or politician. We will gladly take advice, but our decision is final."
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Garyn Dakari on May 30 2014, 06:47 PM
"Angel killed him. Or at least that's what Marissa said... which leads me to the one bit of good news, which is she woke up." Kyle replied.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 30 2014, 06:49 PM
"Understood," Angel replied.

...

"I can get your men acquainted with the ship at any time. But I do have a question - are my friends safe from all of this?"
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: Tyler294 on May 30 2014, 06:51 PM
Tracy tapped the side of the bed with her good hand.

"At least we didn't lose her too..."

She closed her eyes.

"It's starting..."

***

"If you refer to the ones you called "the marked", then yes, they are safe. We are attempting to locate the nearest family of each of them in order to move them to safety as well. It would be helpful if you listed all of the individuals that you believe are being threatened." Braddock responded.
Title: Dawnbreaker: Legacies - Deleted Scene - Harrington's Return
Post by: JA-394 on May 30 2014, 06:55 PM
"I've already listed as many as I know of," Angel said, then after a momentary pause, added with, "Just keep them away from me. My presence has ruined all of their lives beyond repair. If we're lucky, with that... thing... that was in the Urn now in the physical essence of a body, Harrington will go after it, and leave them alone."

She somehow knew those words weren't true, and it didn't take a professional to see it on her face.

Shaking her head, she said softly, "Maybe he'll come for me instead."
