Jiero Conner spies with his little eye:

Jiero walked around the scrap piles looking for any thing of worth. He didn't really need any thing but it was never a bad idea to have replacement parts. As he looked he spotted a car bumper sticking out of a pile of rubble. "Let's see if that's useable Jiero said to himself as he walked over to it. He brushed some of the rubble aside before pulling the bumper free and looked it over. It was a little dinged and scratched but it should still be useable. He rested it on his shoulder and started heading back to his truck. He figured that the bumper would probably be the last useful thing he'd find in the area for the timing being so he should move on to another location. He rested the bumper in the truck bed along with what else had found before he got into the front seat. As he started the engine he checked to make sure there was nothing he'd hit in front of him. When he was sure there was nothing there he put his foot on the gas and started down the road.

"It's easy to find something worth dying for.
Do you have anything worth living for?"

۩════════════════════════۩

xxLucius was walking down a ruined road, it's sides littered with pits of debris and junk. this road was one of the many small roads between Edge and Midgar; many salvagers would take roads such as these to various scrap piles, taking as much junk and other possibly useful objects with them, then returning to Edge. While Edge was starting to shape up into a workable city, Midgar still had it's fair share of treasure's to salvage and recycle for construction. That, and those who are doing less-then well can find profit in hoofing it to-and-fro Midgar, taking various bits and pieces to sell. Lucius would be one of them.

He was walking back to Edge, carrying a backpack full of scrap metal. He like his find of the day; multiple blade-like slabs of metal, either from lawn mower or ventilation fans. Or, due to the purpose Lucius took them, to make blades weapons. Sure, not many people used blades and swords these days, but there are still a few people who value swordsmanship, and people who still looked up to the SOLDIER's. Lucius reminisced about his days in Shinra, until the noise of a truck hit his ears. While the roads between Midgar and Edge were relatively safe, barring a few monster crossings, Lucius knew well that in Midgar, more then monsters reside; Thugs and criminals, people who did wrong to any major organization like the WRO or Shinra (Though Shinra disbanded, they have a tendency to pay eye for an eye, affiliations be damned) tended to group around there; the place was so dangerous and unstable, no sane person would go there, not even lawmen. That's why most Criminal Elements hid there; too dangerious for normal folks or anyone who values their lives. Sure, not all of Midgar was dangerous, but deeper in, that's where the freaks start popping out. Plus, most folks where scared of things like Deep Ground remants, or something.

Lucius ducked to the side when he heard the truck, and looked behind him. It could just be another salvager making his way to Edge, or if what Lucius feared was true, a couple of highway men looking for people like Lucius to shake down. Of course, Lucius didn't want to look like a mugger himself, and stayed partially in the open, but he was close enough to the edge that, in the event that trucker proved hostile, Lucius could escape through the junk piles. If he wasn't an issue, then Lucius would just look like he didn't want to hog the road or get run over. He walked slowly forward, but made sure that he was paying attention to the truck, in the event that it stopped or did some other strange action.

Jiero Conner spies with his little eye:

As Jiero drove he though he saw some thing red move on the side of the road. He thought it might have been his imagination but figured it was some one or thing living among the ruins. There were still some people here for some reason or another and it wouldn't be unusual for monsters to move in. There were enough places to hide. He shook his head as he dismissed and looked around. He found a relatively empty spot and parked the truck. "Let's see if there's any thing good around here" Jiero said to him self as he turned off the engine and got out of the truck. He made sure there wasn't any thing around for him to trip on before he closed the door and started walking.

{{-I apologize, in my anticipation for our internet provider to arrive {which they hadn't}, I forgot to make my post.-}}

I'm a soldier, meaning that I'm
Both the defendant and the judge
I'm standing on both sides of the flame
Moving along curves, overtaking death and life
I'm running to battle with the shadow of a lie
No matter how many threads deception would weave
Truth will show its face of light


Who am I..?
"A creation that exceeds expectations."
Why am I here..?
"You are a promise of hope."
Do I have a purpose anymore..?
"Once a tool, always a fool."
Is there anyone waiting for me..?
"Being alone is only an illusion."
Am I... cursed?
"An abomination mixed as a blessing."
Alpha, Omega, Master...
I am none of these.
I am merely...
A messenger.


Don't you cry,
Hide the tears,
Because a new day will begin
Your fire
Will warm
Thousands of hearts
And now rise
Tuck away the pain and fear
The one who's right will win
Know that everything is in your hands

Forever Cursed To Be A Blessing For OthersCursed To Be A Blessing...


Save your tears
For the day
When our pain is far behind
On your feet
Come with me
We are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
Take your place
Save them for the judgment day
Fast and free
Follow me
Time to make the sacrifice
We rise or fall

User ImagexxxxxA glint of gold was flashed in the air as a strange woman was walking on the roof of an pretty tall building, alert in her features as she surveyed the area near the edge of the city Edge. The city and the ruined Midgar were bordered next to one another where you could simply step over the imaginary line to be from one city to the ruins. Her alertness usually had to do with being on alert for dangers. One in which may be of Shin-Ra, though officially they had their science department and soldier department disbanded. Truthfully she thought that it was just a ploy, to make the people less weary when they're out. Shaking her head lightly as she paused in her movement, she thought she heard something like a vehicle in the ruins of Midgar a bit behind her.

xxxxxTurning as to look, she spotted a vehicle that was rattling with what seemed like metal in the back of the truck's bed. It wasn't that odd to see people roaming the ruins, picking up what some considered as trash when it could be scrapped for gil or even be reused for something else. It was good as to make use of something that was likely abandoned for one reason or another. Remaining up on the roof rather than go down to explore, Rosalia folded her wings against her back ever tighter, sighing softly as she tried to not let her thoughts become too much of a distraction. But the feeling she felt with the small meteor was still ever present. As well as another that made its presence ever constant and strong, threatening to take over if she ever let her defense drop.

I'm a soldier, born to stand
In this waking hell I am
Witnessing more than I can compute

Pray myself we don't forget
Lies, betrayed and the oppressed
Please give me the strength to be the truth
People facing the fire together
If we don't, we'll lose all we have found

xxGood thing Lucius wasn't on the road; the truck zoomed past him, and if Lucius was in it's path, he doubt he'd be alive. Emerging form his hiding spot, Lucius saw that the truck had stopped a bit away, and a man came out. Lucius thought him to be another scavenger, and saw no threat from him. As Lucius was planning on going his own way, he saw something interesting in the man's truck trunk; a car bumper. An idea sprang to Lucius's head, and he desired the bumper. But how was he going to get it? He could try to steal it, but it was much to big for that to work out. High-jacking the truck was out of the question; the man may have the key's, and Lucius doesn't know how to hot-wire cars. Sure, he could do a bit of work on the engine, maybe fix up the radio, but start an engine without a key? Out of his expertise. Lucius thought hard, and came to an idea; barter. Lucius had an object the man might be interested in, so maybe he could trade him the bumper for Lucius's object.

Taking a deep breath, Lucius walked towards the man and his truck. The driver got out and began to walk away from Lucius; to him, this would be a good chance to take that bumper. "No, no, don't Lucius. You couldn't pull it off before, you won't now. Just be civil..." Lucius told himself this, and hasten his speed. Once he thought he was close enough, he shouted towards the man. "Excuse me, sir with the truck! If you have the patients, may I have a moment of your time?" Lucius ran towards the truck, just a few yards away from it. His bag was slung over his shoulder, some of the metal edges poking though the cloth bag.

Jiero Conner spies with his little eye:

Jiero stopped walking when he heard some one yell. When he turned around he saw some one running towards him. He relaxed a little and let his arm hang so his hand was next to his pistol. If the man had wanted to rob him then he could have shot Jiero in the back. While he didn't that was no reason not to be cautious. Jiero looked at the man and shrugged his shoulders as he smiled. "Sure. I'm not doing much at the moment. What can I do for you" Jiero asked.

As the tv flickers on, a young peppy looking girl, who possibly has drank too much coffee this morning, and desperately needs to switch to decaf, stands in front of a display showing deep space, and a picture of a red ball fas approaching a picture of the planet.

"-ose of you just joining us, I'll say again, Shin-ra specialists, top in their field, have assured us here at SRNN that while the anomaly seems to be getting closer, there's still no evidence that it is another meteor. It WILL impact the planet in three days time however, this impact will be minimal at best, and will not have any effect on anything! That's if it even makes it through the atmosphere. That's all for today's special report, back to yo-" The girls chipper face was cut off as the tv was turned off.

In roleplay, when three days have passed, the next announcement will be posted. In order to reach the next announcement, please roleplay as much as possible!

Jiero Conner spies with his little eye:

Jiero shook his head and headed deeper into the junk piles. No business had come from speaking with the person but he didn't mind it all that much. He looked around the piles before he found what looked like a radio system. He took some small tools out of his pocket as he walked over to the pile and kneeled down next to it. He picked it up and opened up the back to look at what was inside. Every thing expect the tuning controls and the speakers were fine. "The casing's to damaged but I should be able to use the rest to repair some thing else" Jiero muttered to him self. He close the casing back up and started looking around again.
