Rain of Fire ((Closed RP thread))

Post by DeuxBlackthorn » Tue Sep 05, 2017 5:49 pm

Lady Nightmare passes through the secure airlock into the storage area, looking over to a purple-clad figure, the only other one that knows the contents of the room "I got your message... all the components for Surtur are ready to go now?" scanning the crates that have been pulled out and smiling as she recognizes a few of the more unique pieces of the project

Venessa would nod, "Yes everything is accounted for." She pauses, "The hard part will of course be getting them where we need them to be. Once up there assembly should be relatively easy."

Lady Nightmare scoops up the larger crate of materials, securing a lid over it, then heading back towards the door "Let's get going then... this is gonna take a while" waiting for the other one to be collected before heading to the door "Are you still going to be able to follow on your own power?"

"Yeah I should be able to manage... I trained all day yesterday!" She was clearly joking, "I should be fine." She had a specialized air tank on her back and since she wasn't going into combat she could manage to use minimal power for her shield and be fine. With that she would magnetically lift some of the bigger more awkward components that would be hard to carry by hand, "Plus once we get into space things will get easier."

Lady Nightmare nods and leads the way out of the chamber, back to the hangar bays, opening up one of the access ports into the wasteland "Let's get out there then, we'll just fly straight out and up, don't want this drawing any more attention than we have to" lifting off the ground and starting to fly out the exit

Venessa would fly out of the hanger putting up her shield to protect her from atmospheric conditions and all of the components had a specially designed metal sheath to protect them during travel so they would make it up to the outer atmosphere in one piece.

As the two fly upward, unnoticed, a simple housefly spirals up along their same path. As the insect ascends, more bugs begin to join the parade. Nothing unusual about little insects flying about in the sky.

Lady Nightmare continues her ascent, scanning around for larger threats, not particularly noticing the insects while their numbers remain small and the area is natural for them to be

Venessa mostly concentrates on her powers at this point as they are still relatively new to her just keeping up with N trusting her to keep any threats at bay.

The insects continue to follow, flitting back and forth, almost as if watching the flying figures. Can bugs be curious?

Lady Nightmare starts taking notice as we move into the upper atmosphere where insects wouldn't normally venture, requesting Lilith to trigger some scans and see if there's anything abnormal about the bugs, also relaying a message through the connection to Venessa about the oddity

As the sensors activate targeting the insects, more and more appear in the air. A silent electronic distortion wave passes through the air overloading the scanners with a flood of nonsensical numbers. The bugs quickly grow into an ever increasing swarm.

Lady Nightmare curses loudly as the wave rolls over, focusing immediately on defense as she knows Lilith will relay the situation, continuing to fly upwards at full speed while trailing a cloud of nanites behind her, waiting until the insects draw into range before converting the cloud to thermobaric gas to detonate the air

The swarm spreads out wide across the sky under the flyers. A third of the bugs mingle into the nanites and disappear in the explosion- presumably destroyed. The other two thirds flank from each side catching up with the two flying figures.

Lilth would attempt to preform a signal scan trying to determine if the bugs were being remotely controlled and artificial as well as scanning the bugs themselves through N's own sensory perceptions to see if the bugs were artificial. However the data returned is non-sensical.

Venessa for her part still had her shield up around herself which would protect her from the bugs as she continued to fly up watching the swarm increased around. She was busy enough just handling the items she was moving with her powers and knew they were approaching the height where bugs wouldn't be able to handle flying relatively soon.

Lady Nightmare forms her body around the crate to protect it, firing off tiny puffs of nanites into the gas as the bugs try to approach her while devoting the rest of her production to bolstering her mass defensively, shifting her outer layer to Vibratium-coated adamant to attempt to deflect any forceful attacks while she keeps moving upwards

The swarms of bugs cloud around the flyers. More and more are added to the mass. As they close around forming a nearly solid bubble to trap the figures.

Lady Nightmare sees the bugs gathering around us and sends a message to Venessa, directing all her nanites to start stripping every electron from the area, charging the air with a massive passive current

Venessa stops concentrating her powers on holding the object or herself for just a second as she pushes a mass magnetic wave through the charged air effectively creating a huge electromagnetic pulse in addition to an actual physical wave of air.

The electromagnetic pulse spreads out through the area effecting everything. The bugs crackle and begin falling.

Lady Nightmare's defenses trigger, her own counterpulse protecting her, though her outlying nanites fizzle out and fall away with the bugs. She checks to make sure Venessa stabilizes herself quickly before continuing her flight upwards, hoping to get out of the atmosphere before we draw any more attention.

Venessa managed to stabilize herself though it took quite a drain on her stamina to do so. Luckily as long as they make it to space without too much further delays she should be able to complete the job and make it down safety. It is at this point she takes her first protein based pill designed originally to keep soldiers going in the field when they couldn't rest it serves a similar person here to ward off fatigue.

She then continues the journey upwards components in tow.

Lady Nightmare continues the journey up past the limits of the atmosphere, stopping once we're completely clear of Earth's gravity influence and popping open the crate "Alright, let's get this thing assembled and en route before there are any more issues"

Venessa would give a slight nod using her powers to pull off the protective sheaths from the components she had brought up. She would keep her shields up to protect her from the elements and was drawing air from the air tank she had brought along. She had prepped the components for easy assembly on the ground and now that they were here it took a lot less effort to keep things where she wanted them to be. She had also assembled the satellite on the ground two different times so she had the assembly procedure down pat and with AI assistance there was little chance of anything going wrong. She was able to concentrate solely on what she was doing trusting N to keep her safe.

Lady Nightmare just keeps watch, expanding her senses to a full sphere and moving around the assembly so there aren't any blind spots, remaining at the ready if her help is needed at any step as well
