Zero Gee Isn't For Me
Date of Scene: 13 October 2022
Location: Danger Room
Synopsis: Monet and Negasonic fight aliens. IN SPACE. In the Danger Room.
Cast of Characters: Monet St. Croix, Negasonic

Monet St. Croix has posed:
The scenario being setup is one in space. Or rather the simulation of it. A chaotic, tumbling, virtually anarchic space station turned topsy turvy. From the archives, it's the SWORD Station. The dynamic for the mission is search and rescue. The station has ceased communications, the group has to go there, figure uot what's going on, rescue survivors, and adapt from there.
    Monet is there, otherwise looking irritable as the simulation clock counts down to start.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie floats along upside down for a long moment when everything started. She is wearing her go out and get in trouble gear. No not the clubbing attire. The X-men uniform which is lightly armored and durable and made for this kind of stupid stuff.

    That doesn't mean she is pleased when a simulated space wrench bounces off her tit though and she winces. "Son of a bitch... this is.. why do I..." she just grumbles and flails out with her hand to try to right herself gripping a bulkhead and slowly turning. "I still think learning how to move in zero-G would be better without a giant clock counting down and hostages maybe dying... or injured people or whatever this is M."

    She gets herself righted. "Okay.. .fine... which way... do we know what caused this to go wrong at all?"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix would float along serenely, "Of course. There are however worse ways to have to adjust." She would move to hover in midair, one of those lucky b*tches that could do anything in this circumstance. she would wait for things to begin.
    "And very little data. From the look of things I'd presume they were attacked by something. Inertial gravity would come from the main power generator. If it's off then the main grid is down. Life support is still online,w hich means it's on auxilary power." she would focus.
    "I can't pick up anyone or anything mentally." Moreso a limitation of her mental range. "If there are survivors, they'll be in the communal areas for the crew. Cafeteria, bar, recreation zones. There will be information on the bridge, and that's also the likeliest position to have been attacked."

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie is very skeptical of the almost live fire welcome to zero-G and no amount of talking aboujt how it could be worse will convince her this is the right way. She isn't leaving or aborting though.

    It is a bit cool if disorientating.

    "Okay... " she glances frantically for a moment. "Looks like crew is this way.. uh ..aft.. or it it port.. you know it doesn't matter. I imagine command is on a different level entirely. Do you they have turbo lifts like star trek on these things?"

    Regardless she carefully pushes off and floats down that way she thinks is correct moving slowly from handhold to handhold. Ready to dodge floating chaos.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix would shake her head, "There will be, but if there's no power they'll likely be locked down." She would furrow her brow. she would move along after Negasonic, floating. Letting the other girl move her way along.
    "Curious though. The facility's main generator is likely down, but there's nothing locked down. Heavy damage to the main generator would be giving off alerts. As well as any sort of attack. But all this.." Things floating on past the likes of which only a nerd would enjoy.
    "We'll ask whomever is in the crew when we find them." she goes along with Negasonic towards the crew quarters. The do, however, run into a bit of an issue.
    There's a large bulkhead sealed down the main way.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie does ponder the mystery. "Maybe it is sabotage instead of a full attack.. like a virus in their system or strategic to leave some things still running easily for whoever did it?"

    At the obstacle se mmmms "Okay so." pondering "Do I think I could blow that hatch wide open.. yes. Yes I do."

    There is totally a but.

    "I think using an explosive charge big enough to do that in space might vent us right out ...and while I would not be surprised you can fly in space.. I would be in a lot of shit at that point M."

    So she gets a really good grip on a bar in the corridor hooking her arm and makes a, after you gesture.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix woulds mirk, "Why thank you." she goes over towards the bulkhead, and then moves over to smash her fist into it. It's dented some. She smashes her fist into it again. And again. And again. It gives over with a final few heaves even as the duo are in a position to go further in. UP ahead is another, winding corridor that has sections of it randomly cut off by bulkheads, resulting in a very winding path to go anywhere.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie watches the pummeling of the bulkhead. "Nice. Hopefully we can do that to whomever fucked this place up soon."

    That was almost optimism. Sort of. Violent Optimism.

    By the time they run into the second bulkhead and take the corridor fork instead of smashing it she starts to think. By the time it happens the third or fourth time though she mmms loudly. "I think we are being herded or boxed... either as a delay or to make sure we end up somewhere specific.. killbox maybe?"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
It doesn't register to M quite what Ellie is takling about. "This is ridiculous.." As they're about to take thier third or so detour about. "Why are they still open haphazardly?"
    Ellie is, unfortunately, totally right in her assumption.
    A door behind the duo closes. A door in front of them closes wit loud slams!
    "I think we're past the point of worrying about depressurizing.."

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie goes very still when the door behind them closes and the door in front of them also closes. She slowly looks around as she grips the handle on the wall.

    "I was saying... that we are being herded into some sort of trap or killbox M."

    She also looks up. Since up is subjective in zero-G.

    She hasn't started to charge up, not yet, because once she starts charging she has to let it go explosively somewheroe and they are still in space. "I.. don't hear anything .. are they sucking the oxygen out?" she worries.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Ellie slowly looks up. Where 'up' is relative. Ther'es something heavy, goopy, and gloppy coming down from the air that splatters over at where her feet might be if she was standing. She looks up.. Up above is a golden-scaled abomination of an alien with spikes, lashing teeth all over it.. And a gaping maw of what might be a morbid shark face grinning.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie's eyes track following the drool as they splat on the ground past her where she floats.

    It's a very nice touch. Honestly the drooling alien abomination is distracting enough that Ellie doesn't even have her immersion broken by whoever coded the scenario and alien reveal scene.

    "Fuck!" she notes alarmed and pushes off the wall trying to get out from under the spiked alien horror show grinning at her "M!" she calls in alarm, starting a charge. Hopefully the thing isn't suited to move too fast in zero-G. All the luck.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
The thing is very, very fast. IT's form is adapted to operate in Zero G and it's evolved in it. Monet goes to move to be ready to yank over on Negasonic's back as soon as her blast goes up and off. "Let's get out of here!"

The Brood goes to leap right -over- as Negasonic even as she goes to blast it down the middle, obliterating it in a pile of goop!

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie squeeeks... almost a squeel of alarm as the alien monster leaps at her with razer fast sharpness. All pointy sharp angles on these things.

    Thankfully Monet is ready for the yank and redirect .... even as goop goes flying in zero-G everywhere. Oh great the goop globs don't fall ot the floor because that grossness obeys zero-G.

    "I vote we leave them all to their fate!"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
    Blasting along with Ellie, M can't help but agree, "We're not eqiupped to take on a full infestation! Our goal is to report back!" M is being realistic here; the two of them aren't going to fight their way through however many dozen Brood have holed up here and taken over.
    Monet goes to hold Ellie by her collar. "Take care of the doors!" They're being chased!

Negasonic has posed:
    "Hold on tight.... and don't let me suffocate...." it is easy enough in some of the scenarios and the dump of adrenaline to forget for a moment this is the danger room not actually a chase scene from angry xenomorphs that should be dead by all accounts.

    Ellie lets Monet steer and move them with flight as she starts to cut a much more direct path back to the starting point. The explosions she launches calbrated based on how many punches it seemed to take to blow the bulkhead doors of the station back and down. With some margin of error ... she doesn't want to have to charge twice by half assing it.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
M is flying fast. There are Brood chasing after the two that are equally as fast. One of them behind them goes to draw a breath over like a dragon might.. Then goe sto erupt in a plasma blaze that streaks past the two, putting scorch marks over on the wall in an energy output that's not that far from Ellie's standard one!
    They go through the bulkheads, Ellie moving to obliterate right through the first set!
    Even as up ahead another Brood goes to launch itself at the pair like a demonic jack in teh box!

Negasonic has posed:
    The spray and spltter makes her ball up a bit getting smaller, which isn't hard she is small, so that M takes any spit attacks as she uses Ellie like a gun.

    Honestly Ellie may murder anyone who plays the recording of this scenario later.

    That would beb ecause she screams like a little girl as the thing leaps out of the smoke of her own explosion like a demonic alien jack-n-the-box. Screams and just explodes a fairly unfocused blast in a half sphere forward. It isn't enough to blow it up but it probably is more then enogh to deflect it's leap and send it bouncing off bulkheads as they hopefully race forward.


Monet St. Croix has posed:
The blast is just enough to take out enough of a chunk of the Brood to knock it off course. This does, however, also knock Monet off course as she's covered over in goo and goes careening over off the walls, through the floating furniture, and at least one giant clock that she smashes through covering her in gears! Her hair floofing in every direction from static electricity, covered over in oil, gunk, and glue, even as the duo are sprayed down by fire suppression gear going online. M is able to shield Ellie as she would carom around wiht a firm..
    "Not. A. Word." As she would look like a slasher movie prom girl.

Negasonic has posed:
    "Who .. .even... brings a grandfather clock into space." is all Ellie manages to complain as she gets mutant handled about but protected from being squished or eaten by an alien.

    She is appreciative honestly. She doesn't want to be impregnanted and made a brood queen or anything.

    She flails an arm out and then launches a large explosive at the next bulkhead. "Almost home free!"

Monet St. Croix has posed:
The two go to blast through the next bulkhead, moving to slam through it and from whence they came! Over as they do there are a trio of Brood dropping down on them! They're small ones. Like Baby Brood sized. They've got wings.. And are somehow fully maneuering through Zero G even as M is smashing through the blasted bulkhead Ellie held up threateningly in front of her!

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie has no idea if this is accurate historically at all. All she knows is it is a rollercoaster of adrenaline and she will probably be ill about it later in the shower post scenario.

    The sight of the flying trio of baby brood has her twisting to wrap around Monet, as gross as she may be right now, and building a charge that ripples and bubbles around both of them and then explodes outwards in all directions.

    Since they are still being pursued.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Boom Brood Baby! A phrase that hopefully is never uttered again in any remote context as the duo manage to blast through the goo, past the final bulkhead, even as energy blasts go after them and the two go to rush over into the 'capsule' that brought them there. Monet goes to hurl debris over through their side of the airlock to try and slow them, going to rush into their arrival vehicle!

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie may be running on a lot of adrenaline but she is definitely clued in enough on monster movies, she slows a smidge before entering the capsule and looks all over it to make sure it isn't full of a huge brood that will just try to eat or implant her before the credits roll.

    It is absolutely what she would do to mess with someone.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
There is, fortunately, not anything left in it for a jump scare as the two go in and thumb the launch.. And then gravity returns to normal as the simulation ends. Leaving the two still totally icky from head to toe.

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie thumbs fuilly to the ground when the simulation ends.

    She looks up and around from her spot sitting there and then up to Monet and then over to the control room.

    She is still breathing heavy. "Hardy hahaa.... turn it all off." she growls.

Monet St. Croix has posed:
Monet St. Croix goes to look up threateningly as well. What sounds like laughing comes up from the control booth.. Then with one final flick of a button, the remaining gunk vanishes. Leaving the two bruised, perhaps. But mostly in dignity.
    M would groan, "I'm going to schedule a spa day."

Negasonic has posed:
    Ellie collapses sprawled on the floor boneless now and just groans sadly.

    "My everything hurts."

    "What happens at a spa day anyhow?"
