It would take over 2 hours but eventually the assembly would be finished. The system was setup so any needed fine tuning could be done from the ground and gathered solar energy which is much more potent outside the atmosphere to recharge its energy cells using small thrusters to maintain its position in geostationary orbit. Venessa for her part would be quite tired and at this point was merely looking to hit the ground and catch some sleep mostly confident in her ability to make it to the ground safely.

As the two begin to start their descent back toward the city, a thick haze forms a mile below them. The clouds start to merge into one solid mass extending off into the distance in all directions.

Lady Nightmare notes the haze gathering below and sends the message to Lilith "Skip local system tests, move Surtur to final position" the satellite thrusters kicking on to push it off into the depths of space as she looks to Venessa "You have any more in you, love? Or is this one on me?" turning her gaze back down to see just what the clouds are doing exactly

Venessa would note the clouds seeming to gather. Upon N's question she would lie, "I'm good for round 2." She would pop another protein pill giving her a small energy boost but it was mostly superficial.

Lilith would move the satellite into position and begin the power up sequence prepping to fire if it needed to.

The clouds grow thicker as spires begin to rise up from the fog about 10 feet tall all over the cloudbank, just waiting for the two who must pass through to reach the city again.

Lady Nightmare notices that Venessa is looking a bit tired, sighing slightly "Save your energy... I'll take us down, if I tell you to then drop yourself and push the cloud away, go into free-fall, but I'll carry us both as far as I can... this group looks too big to handle without doing something heinous" flowing her nanites around Venessa and forming up her cloud as large as she can as she lowers towards the massive formation

Venessa would let her power wane and eventually shut off completely resting in N's nanites saving what energy she has for the potential big push to come.

The spires in the cloud begin to take on roughly humanoid shapes. Their 'bodies' stretch up reaching out extending arms toward the two descending figures.

Lady Nightmare gathers up as many nanites as she can during the descent, until we're nearly in contact with the figures, simply warning Venessa to hold on tight, gripping around her and plunging into a free fall into the cloud, using the built-up nanites to shield her core and Venessa from contact

The cloud figures all reach up, stretching out, extending limbs lashing and wrapping around the two figures. The cloud creatures attempt to form an ever tightening net around the two, pulsating with crackling energy.

Lady Nightmare starts pushing herself downwards, upping her mass and force as much as possible, and puffing out small clouds of the explosive gas below herself to slow down the ensnaring process, trying to get as far down as she can with Venessa wrapped up

Lady Nightmare's efforts create space ahead of the two, pushing the expanding cloud formation net downward. Above and to the sides, the 'net' weaves together forming a dome over their bodies and lowering with them, a few meters over their heads.

Lady Nightmare keeps pushing down, not using up more nanites than she can replace with the explosions, keeping track of the elevation, not wanting to pull these things too close to the base. If nothing changes then she'll progress about halfway down through the atmosphere before moving to the next step of her plan

Venessa would just cling onto Lady N saving her energy for when they really needed it doing her best to just remain aware despite how tired she was.

The cloud figures keep trying to surround and close in on the two but are held at a bit of a distance by Lady N's force, just enough to give them breathing room as they reach the mid-point.

Lady Nightmare sends the message to Venessa to drop down with a repulsion field active, while she herself holds steady at her position, amplifying her voice to echo through the sky "Singularity, you're a coward and a weakling! You strive so hard to keep humanity bound to this world because you know you aren't even a match for their potential! And now you have an even larger threat to face, with them under my protection! I deny you this world and its people! Leave us be or know that I will be the one grinning down as the last refuge of your data is crushed into oblivion forever!"

Venessa would put back up her shield keeping it close to herself as she would let herself drop towards the ground as fast as possible actually shaping her shield to allow the best airflow for falling.

The cloud forms around the two starts to crackle with electrical energy. Suddenly arcs of lightning shoot back and forth inside the cloud bubble firing over and over and over from all directions.

Lady Nightmare quickly shifts her nanites to rubber insulation, hoping Venessa can keep her shields long enough to break free while she starts pulsing out bursts of the explosive gas again all around herself, holding still to fight while she tries to get all the attention on her

The distraction works as the cloud forms swarm Lady Nightmare trying to wrap a tight cocoon around her.

Lady Nightmare keeps up the puffs and her barrier of nanites to buy time, waiting for Venessa to get well out of range of what's coming, running through the possibilities in her mind in those seconds, coming to a decision and starting to draw herself in tighter to lure the constructs in

The clouds follow as expected, closing in as tightly around Lady Nightmare as possible. The air inside becomes ionized as more electrical charges build up.

Lady Nightmare grins to herself inside the cocoon, having given Venessa a solid head start on an escape, so she converts every bit of her body to nitroglycerin and ignites it, the built-up nanites enough to create a few dozen gallons of the devastating explosive

The explosion rips through the clouds scattering the substance across the sky.

Venessa keeps her shield up as she allows herself to go into a free fall on the edge of unconsciousness at this point just trying to make it to the ground.
