"I reckon we should set a vending machine on fire and toss it out the window! Viva la Resistance!"

As the last of the dark moons fell, the crew made their way towards their objective, after running up a flight of stirs and several admittedly fancy bathrooms and studies Nali immediatly bolted and ran ahead of the group. The group ran after at brisk and urgent speed, once an offending door was knocked aside by Captain Skipper, the crew were met with the sight of a shuttle flying away and an extremely pissed off Nali. Her sisters had been taken, they were too late. Well... s**t . Veronica sighed heavily with annoyance and anger. " Is it too much to ask that everything goes according to plan just once?!" she muttered to herself. However any grief she may have had, vanished once the Amazon's good Doctor showed up with shuttle! Veronica grinned and boarded along with everyone else. Skipper had taken the drivers seat and Nali the passenger, Veronica herself was sat in the back between Jask and Krogan, and she wasn't having the best of times, while time wasn't on their sied and urgency was required Skipper's driving was unnerving her severely.

Krogan's roaring laughter certainly wasn't helping either, he was most definatly enjoying this entire ride. Krogan also suggested jumping onto CLara's shuttle like in the old action films, Veronica quietly and shakily voiced her objections. " That sorta stuff only works in the movies, try it in real life and you'll become a large bloody splat on the nearest pavement, so... stay in the shuttle. As Skipper made a paticularly sharp turn Veronica squeaked in suprise, and found herself wrapping both her arms around Krogan for balance. She kept a fairly tight grip on his shoulders as the shuttle continued to speed after their elusive foe. " I'll let go once the shuttle has landed" She said nervously, Krogan was a sturdy creature so the odds of any falling and slipping around were lowered considerably.

                                                  "I'm like a freaking dead people factory."

                  ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


                  Weaving between whatever vehicles dared get in his way, Owyn soared through the streets of Illium in chase of the Dark Green shuttle. The lights from the shuttle ahead were dim, but getting brighter slowly. They were definitely gaining on the Dark Moon shuttle that hosted Clara, Lyrana and Eralynn. Suddenly, Owyn's heart sank as the Dark Moon shuttle descended sharply into the packed traffic of Illium's main streets and Owyn was forced to follow it. Now, shuttle lanes are divided into two directions; similar to one of Earth's highways. And Skipper was following the Dark Moon Shuttle down the wrong lane. As both shuttles weaved madly through the havoc that was this chase, Skipper soon saw his target zoom off down a back-alley airspace and quickly followed. Now following (and gaining slightly) intently on the pair of headlights that had Owyn's attention for this entire chase, Owyn found himself having to take an abnormally sharp corner as the Dark Moon shuttle disappeared into the darkness sharply. Unfortunately Owyn was flying much faster than the Dark Moon shuttle was and the momentum caused him to badly miss the turn and have to proceed down a parallel lane in the hopes that on the other end of it he'd find the Dark Moon shuttle. Now with a towering building separating him from his target, Owyn was getting pissed off. He found himself losing his bearings entirely and cursed, yanking backwards on the shuttle's wheel and sending it flying vertically into the sky up and over the building.

                  Owyn found himself with the shuttle upside down momentarily as he performed a total somersault up and over the building separating him from the Dark Moon shuttle, which he then spotted and followed intently while eventually turning back to the right way up and stepping down on the throttle angrily, the shuttle blasting ahead after the Dark Moon shuttle that had now angled off slightly towards a particular building's landing pad. Owyn didn't want it to reach it's destination. "Velorix! Take that thing down!" he yelled, trying to line up the shuttle for Velorix to get the best shot he could, but under these conditions that was proving easier said than done.

-----------"It's time for some thrilling heroics."


                So far, the original plan hadn't worked and now the team was chasing down to kidnapped Asari and a Dark moon. Velorix's anger rose when he realized one of the captives was merely a small child, and he had to keep himself from constantly reminding Owyn to be careful while driving. Ramming the shuttle out of the sky at this point was a very bad idea. However, Skipper was the one driving, so things were guaranteed to be less than safe, and promised many heart attacks in the near future. The Turian gripped his rifle with one hand while the other held on tightly to whatever seemed remotely secure at the moment. It was going to get bumpy.

                He cursed and grew tense at every swerve and near-miss, and even shut his eyes at a few parts when he thought the team was done for. Like everything that happened with Owyn, though, everything came out okay and soon they were back on the shuttle's tail, slowly gaining... And then they lost it. Damn! Their Captain was rather irked and seemed to think that the right thing to do was send their shuttle soaring straight up into the air.

                "SKIPPER, YOU IDIOT." Velorix couldn't help the words from escaping as he was pressed against the seat, clinging to a nearby teammate as they did a bloody flip over the building and had the Dark Moon vehicle back in their sights. He glared halfheartedly at Owyn and shakily let go of the poor sap he'd dug his talons into. The shock, fear, and mild anger had faded away in an instant when he was called upon to stop said shuttle, and Velorix quickly rolled down a window in order to get a good shot. He hated to lean out of the small metal vehicle (which meant "safety" when flying this damned high), but did exactly as Skipper asked and took the time to line up a shot that would disable the shuttle without straight-up exploding it. After all, there were civilians in there.

                "Steady... steady..." He doubted he would have made the shot without the added precision of his cybernetic eye, and when Velorix pulled the trigger his Widow blasted a part of the Moon's shuttle that forced it into a rocky "landing" on a nearby skyscraper's landing pad. The recoil of the modified rifle nearly made him fall out of the sky-car, but he jumped back inside and hung on for dear life. "...Got it. If you didn't notice."

                  ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


                  Owyn completely disregarded Velorix yelling at him; at the time he was too pumped full of adrenaline to care. Instead he found himself genuinely brought back to conscious thought when velorix fired off a powerful round from his Widow and blasting a nice chunk from the Dark Moon Shuttle's hull. Owyn chuckled as he saw it make a half-baked landing on a nearby skyscraper's landing pad, and as he closed in on it his heart sank again as he figured out that this was unfortunately where the shuttle was wanting to go anyway as numerous Dark Moon soldiers came pouring out of the building. Some escorted Clara, while some others took Lyrana and Eralynn through separate doors. The rest of them opened fire on the Amazon's shuttle. Owyn cursed, making a quick evasive maneouvre and flying upwards to the top of the skyscraper.

                  Owyn landed the shuttle without a hitch and disembarked onto the roof of the top floor of the skyscraper. He firmly stomped on a vent hatch, crumpling it slightly. He sighed and took off his helmet before casually throwing it back into the shuttle. Owyn massaged his temples and spoke quickly to Taelon, who now sat back in the driver's seat. "Fly it somewhere close, but safe. I'll radio you when we need you." he said. As the now empty shuttle roared back into action, Owyn stroked his slightly stubbled jaw. He hadn't had time to shave since Omega, although this time it felt more familiar than just not being bothered to shave, this time he didn't have time to because he was saving the Galaxy. Owyn quickly looked around the roof, a couple of airducts on the floor leading into ventilation shafts and no sign of a door up here. Owyn cursed. They were too far away from their targets and there was barely any way to enter the building. He racked his brains for something to do.

                  If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

                  [kitties!]Nali was used to fast-moving shuttles, and she was used to bumpy rides, but this was ridiculous. Trust Skipper to exceed her crazy expectations. Then again, he did seem not only to be keeping up with Clara's shuttle but also catching up. For the most parts. There were a few times in there where it looked like they'd lost them or when she couldn't spot the shuttle among the other vehicles, but she was usually distracted but some odd turn or flip or how tightly her fingers were curled around anything around her that could've been used as a handle.

                  [kitties!]"SKIPPER, YOU IDIOT!"

                  [kitties!]"Velorix! Take that thing down!"

                  [kitties!]Nali hadn't realized she'd closed her eyes until she opened them again just in time to look over her shoulder and saw Velorix leaning out the window and then spinning around to face the front again to watch the shuttle stumble a landing. The maiden ducked her head some and winced, fearing for the safety of the two asari inside, but she reminded herself that she couldn't have expected any part of this chase to go smoothly. ...like when a horde of Dark Moons poured from the building. Dammit.

                  [kitties!]While a lot of them began firing at their shuttle, Nali caught a glimpse of her sisters being carried into the building. It looked like they were still in one piece, and there was a little swell of pride when she saw the smaller asari still trying to fight the merc carrying her so much that another couple had to help him. When they got to the roof, though, she was quick to jump out of the vehicle and to look for an entrance. Not much luck as far as doors went. She huffed in frustration and then looked over to Skipper.

                  [kitties!]"Well, what now, oh fearless leader?"

┏━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Was Thinking About: Being an Action Movie Hero, apparently...

The (standing) behemoth paused in his enjoying the wild ride when he noticed two small human arms around his waist. He turned his head down to the panicked Veronica, mouth plate pressed against the upper area of his helmet as he removed his arm from the bar on the ceiling of the shuttle...not like he needed it for the support anyways...that was a lie when Skipper flew the shuttle straight up and he grabbed the bar again and started laughing again, before he then moved the free armored hand over and gave the female a light, encouraging pat on the head once the shuttle was flying straight and Velorix let go and moved next to him on Skipper's order: shooting down a shuttle in a speeding chase across the sky? Cool.

He watched eagerly as the Turian lined up the shot and would have applauded had he not moved the arm holding his shotgun to wrap around the Turian as he jumped back to keep from falling,"Nice shot." He looked on as the shuttle crashed down to apparently it's target area and those 'Dark Moon' people came out to greet them in their usual manner: Gunfire. Fun. As the shuttle landed and the party exited, ready for battle he watched as Skipper started looking about for a way to get in and something in his mind clicked at that moment as he moved over to the human, Claymore dangling at his side as he moved his other hand to tap the human on the shoulder,"Captain...may I make a suggestion?" there was a toothy grin behind his helmet as he turned his head to look towards one of the air ducts nearby.


Now Thinking About: Daring Plan of daringness!

What's he doing: Scheming.
Who's he doing it with: Skipper and the Shore Party

                  ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

                  As soon as Nali asked him (rather rudely) what their next move would be, Skipper scrunched up his face and closed his eyes, massaging the bridge of his nose intensely. When Tank piped up asking if he could make a suggestion, Skipper rose his hand in defiance quickly signalling a "no" while he thought. Suddenly, Skipper made a quick snapping sound as he clicked his fingers together and smiled. Quickly counting the vents, they numbered at three. Perfect. Owyn wheeled around and spoke to the team. "Everyone, listen up!" he said, pointing individually to all three vents. "We're gonna split up into three teams. Vorcha, you're with me. We're Team One." he said to Jask, gesturing for the vorcha to join him over by their vent before pointing to Tank and Velorix. "Velorix, you lead Team Two and take krogan down that... very large vent over there." he said, gesturing to said vent before pointing to the last one. "Nali, you take Team Three. Veronica and Otium. Down the last vent." Owyn turned around, crouching down to his own vent and unsheathing his knife which he then used to pry off the cover. "Good luck everyone, find the targets and get out." he said, before pushing Jask down into the vent and jumping down himself.

                  Owyn slid down for a while, just behind Jask. Soon Jask stopped as they reached the end of their ride, at the other vent cover. Soon though, this vent (and Jask) were pushed through by Owyn's heavy armoured impact. The vent, then Jask and then Owyn were left in a crumpled pile. Owyn stood up, dragging Jask to his feet before pulling out his own Revenant, arming it and strafing forward ever alert. With Jask behind him, Owyn waited for anything to jump out at him.

J A S K--------------------------------

Right about the time Owyn had started swerving violently enough to make him smack into the wall of the shuttle, did he know that the man hadn't been exaggerating when he'd said that it was going to be a 'bumpy ride'. Also, the virtually a 90 degree angle, and brief moment they were actually upside-down really convinced him of that fact. As soon as the shuttle landed, Jask's death-grip on the seat he was currently in loosened slightly, before letting go of it completely and rushing with the others to get out of there.

As he stepped out, he looked back to the shuttle in slight shock as Owyn instructed Taelon to fly it somewhere safe, watching it take off once again before turning his attention back to the team. He clenched his fists at his sides and shook his head slightly to try and shake some of the adrenaline he'd gotten from that ride off, but soon found his attention focused back on the Captain as he was addressed. They were splitting up? For a moment, he was slightly confused as to what the plan was, though he didn't have to wait long for an explanation, as Owyn quickly removed the nearby vent cover and the vorcha found himself being pushed into it, rather unexpectedly. Jask made a quick hiss of surprise and tried to slow his descent down the vent by clinging to the narrow walls, managing to come to a stop before he hit the other cover at the end of the ventilation shaft. He exhaled in relief, just before he was kicked through the vent cover and fell to the ground below. He shook his head once again in shock as the human fell next to him, and he grunted in displeasure as Owyn speedily stood up and hoisted him to his feet again.

Jask growled and narrowed his eyes, watching the human take out his weapon and begin moving forward. Jask did the same, following behind him and glaring around the room. The room was fairly large, and packed with a bunch of supplies, like crates and barrels. What this room was used for, he didn't know or care. He just continued to look around in a mixture of confusion an annoyance.

He didn't have to wait long though. The sound of a bullet ricocheting off of a nearby crate brought him to full attention and he looked over to see the Dark Moons flooding into the room. He took cover behind a nearby crate and began firing at them.

                  If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

                  [kitties!]Alright, so her question had come out more sarcastically than she'd intended, but she wasn't about to interrupt the captain's thought with some silly apology. Maybe later once Eralynn and Lyrana were safe and she was in a more polite mood. Besides, it looked like Skipper had come up with something. Divide and conquer. Skipper, Velorix, and she were to lead their teams in through the vents, find some way to get the two asari out of there, and leave. Right. As much as it pained her to admit it, there were probably far too many Dark Moons in this building to take them on as they were, and blowing the entire place up was probably out of the question since they weren't exactly rolling in explosives...

                  [kitties!]As Skipper pried open his own vent, Nali brought out her pistol and fired two shots at her team's, each round hitting one corner (and bolt) of the cover. Once that end was free, the asari crouched down and grabbed the edge, crudely wrenching it up until the grate was curled to one side like the lid of a sardine can and it was open enough to allow for the two biotics and their soldier. "Let's go," Nali said over her shoulder at Otium and Veronica not a moment before she jumped into the vent, and it took her down like a slide: again, it was probably something she would've enjoyed in any other circumstance.

                  [kitties!]As Nali descended into the building, pursued by both drell and human, she noticed rungs on the opposite side of the wall: a ladder for maintenance, most likely. Well, there was one escape route. She would need to make a list of them since simply walking out the front door probably wasn't an option. Finally, the vanguard grunted when her feet hit something somewhat solid. The other vent cover, this one dented from...oh, probably from her feet hitting it.

                  [kitties!]On the other side, the sound seemed to have stirred some people as mutterings could be heard, and Nali prepared herself to face Dark Moons until she realized the tones were far too scared and shocked to have been mercs. The lady grunted as she kicked down at the cover. Just another dent, and the voices on the other side hushed. One more time, and the vent cover finally relented, landing on the floor below with a clatter and followed by Nali who landed on her feet (albeit a little unorthodox for someone helping to save the galaxy) and quickly moved aside to allow the two behind her to land as well.

                  [kitties!]Nali looked around the room. It looked like some sort of break room with some chairs, a table, a couch and love seat, a fridge and sink, some news vid playing on a screen in the corner. The lady made a note to raid the fridge on the way out if they could, but in the opposite corner was a huddle of seven or eight frightened people in business dress, most of them asari with a couple of humans and a quarian tossed into the mix. From that corner, Nali heard the murmurs start again, and she managed to decipher a few of them. Apparently, these people were buying into the same lies given to the rest of the galaxy.

                  [kitties!]"Oh, God, it's T'Roa..." "...come to finish us off..." and her personal favorite, "Please, let us go! We're only staff, and we have families!"

                  [kitties!]"What the hell kind of company would hire you fools? You idiots think we would've come through the damn vents if we were with those damn Dark Moons?" her brows furrowed, and she hissed as she began wiping a good deal of dust from the ventilation shaft from her armor before looking at them again, "Three ladies just got here. Two asari--Lyrana Til and her sister Eralynn--and some blonde b***h named Clara. Any of you know where they might be?"

                  [kitties!]"W-we don't know anything!"

                  [kitties!]"Well, that's been made abundantly clear," Nali rolled her eyes and huffed under her breath. The employees were still obviously cowering in spite of the bulletproof argument the asari had raised earlier, so she took one of the chairs from the table and moved it under the vent, "Right. Well, when you fools are done soiling yourselves, there's a ladder in this shaft. Make your way to the roof and we'll try to drop a hint about you to Nos Astra police." That said, Nali motioned for her two team mates to follow her, and a couple of the braver employees parted from the huddle and inched carefully to the chair and vent. She stopped at the door and looked over her shoulder, somewhat calmed down, "Which one of you has the highest clearance here?"

                  [kitties!]"That's me," the quarian from the group answered shakily behind his mask. Surprising, actually. Nali would've expected it to be one of the asari...

                  [kitties!]"Good. We don't have anyone techy with us, so I'll need your ID to get through any locked doors we might encounter."

                  [kitties!]"Y-you can't have my ID!" the quarian answered defiantly, obviously not convinced that Nali was really letting them go.

                  [kitties!]Unfortunately for the ballsy quarian, the asari made her way across the room and pinned the suited man to the wall behind him with her forearm to his neck and a gun pointed to the top of his visor. "I don't remember asking!"

                  [kitties!]"Gah! H-here! Take it!" he sputtered, and once Nali had released him, he pulled a thin chain from around his neck and handed the dangling card to the asari.

                  [kitties!]"Thank you. Now, get out of here. All of you." Nothing. "Move it!" She once again made her way to the door as it opened, and the frightened employees shuffled over to the vent, climbing into the narrow shaft one at a time. Nali looked over to Otium and Veronica with a bit of a tired look on her face, "Alright. Let's see what kind of trouble we can get ourselves into..."

"I reckon we should set a vending machine on fire and toss it out the window! Viva la Resistance!"



The still paniced Veronica didn't find Krogan's gentle pat on the reassuring, it seemed more... mocking. Veronica didn;t look up once the large hand soflty collided with her head, she only replied " I know what you're trying to do, but I'll be much happier once we've landed and are safe on some nice solid, non moving floor. So... I'm just gonna hold on until then ok?". The chase wasn't going as well as it could, as the frustrated Owyn driving the shuttle, was having some trouble staying on course with the enemy shuttle. Unfortunatly when they had to make a rather sharp turn due to the differing speeds of the shuttles, the Amazon shuttle was sent in a completely different direction with a towering structure in the way of Clara's shuttle. Skipper was having trouble focusing due to the amount of stuff that had gone wrong in such a short space of time. He immediatly flew over said obstructing building, and demanded Velorix take the thing down. The shuttle grew steadier and Velorix took aim, if a spectacular moment of rifle skill, he landed a hit on the shuttle forcing to land. Veronica released her grip on Krogan grinning at Velorix " Ok, that was pretty damn awesome!".

Skipper landed the shuttle upon a Dark Moon skyscraper and the crew disembarked, Nali was quick to rush out and look for a way in, but she had no luck. The mission was having an adverse effect on the crew Nali was angry, Skipper was under stress, Velorix almost died... Thankfully Skipper had a plan! The crew was too split up into teams, Veronica was placed with Nali and Otium and they made their way down a rather filthy vent into... a break room... full of frightened employees. Nali, in her rage quickly got to work interrogating the scared bunch. None of them were being even remotely helpful. They were deathly afraid of Nali though, which made Veronica smirk. A Quarian in charge decided he'd play hero an refuse to disclose any information regarding the finding of Clara, Veroniac tutted and shook her head " That is a really bad idea there... ". In a totally not suprising outcome, the Quarian was pinned to the wall with a gun in his face. This getting most violent.

The poor unfortunate Quarian was let loose, after finally surrendering what the crew needed. Nali ordered that the employees leave post haste. Nali looked over to a smiling Veronica and nonchalant Otium, she was expecting the crew to get into trouble once more. It had become an almost routine thing. "Yeah... lets find us some dumb Dark Moon to murder...". After a pause, the still grinning Veronica said half joking half seriously " You know... you ought to stick to agressive, forceful and wall pinning... it's pretty sexy. I can't tell you what I'm thinking right now... ".

                  If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

                  [kitties!]The last of the captives had made their way into the vent, and her attention shifted over to Veronica as she made her comment. While she appreciated the levity, she really wasn't in any mood to play along. "You can save it for later, then," Nali responded, "For now, just think about saving Eralynn and Lyri. That's our number-one priority here. Killing Moons--and Clara--comes second." Before the asari could turn back to the door, however, she heard a familiar clicking noise up near her head.

                  [kitties!]"Hold it right there!" a voice, clearly turian, demanded. What was with turians trying to keep her from getting through doors lately?

                  [kitties!]A guard. There were most likely one or two of them guarding the door to keep the captives quiet and alive in case the Moons needed any hostages or whatever. Still, blatantly annoyed more than anything else, Nali forced a quick sigh through her nose before acting. The lady quickly turned and grabbed the turian's wrist, pushing his hand--and gun--out to the side before her other arm came up swiftly. Her forearm came into harsh impact with his elbow before it gave in, and the turian's arm bent up with a sickening snap accompanied by the merc's blood-curdling scream. "Could've pulled the trigger," Nali scolded, yanking the broken arm and spinning the Dark Moon in front of her to catch the rounds fired at her from his colleague, "But no, you had to stand there and grab a one-liner, didn't you?" She dropped the turian body to the floor, and the merc, a batarian, who'd accidentally shot him down dropped his gun in guilt and/or shock.

                  [kitties!]"He was my best friend!!"

                  [kitties!]Hearing the commotion, four or five more Dark Moons emerged from two other rooms in the hall before them. While Nali's eyes had been momentarily caught up on the newcomers coming their way, the one batarian managed to sneak behind her and grab her, one arm around her neck in a choke hold while the other wrapped under her left arm to keep her from shooting the other mercs with the M-5 in her hand. With Nali held back--and the batarian feeling rather accomplished now that he was squeezing the breath from the one who'd made him kill his friend--the newer few mercs rushed into the break room to deal with Otium and Veronica.

                  [kitties!]"The Boss says hi," the batarian chortled as Nali's free hand grasped desperately at the arm around her neck.

                  [kitties!]"Hi," the asari managed to choke out, "Here...give him...this for me...would you?" The vanguard wrenched her left arm up and back until she felt something come into contact with the end of her gun's barrel. The batarian gave a slight grunt in confusion, but before he could finish that, Nali squeezed the trigger, and a round went straight through the merc's skull. A second passed, and as soon as the batarian corpse's grip on the lady loosened and she heard his body crumple to the ground, Nali let out another sigh, one hand coming up to rub at her throat as she turned to see how the others were doing.

"I reckon we should set a vending machine on fire and toss it out the window! Viva la Resistance!"



Veronica's smirk dropped, her comment might have a been a little inappropiate considering the circumstances. She nodded and sighed, " You're right that was poor timing, I apologise. Now probably isn't the time for joking... ". Veronica could say anymore, the sound of a gaurd approaching, but Nali was catlike reflexes siezed the unfortunate gaurd by the arm and quickly shattered it, Veronica grimaced and groaned upon hearing the snap, the second merc, lamenting the death of his supposed friend opened fire on Nali who used the first merc as a shield. it was a pretty impressive move indeed which made Veronica grin once more, it seemed that having family in danger really made Nali focus on effective eays to murder people. Veronica immediatly drew her Carnifex once a few more mercs showed up after hearing the commotion. She quickly put one down with two quick shots to the chest. A second one was incapacitated after being flung into a wall with a well placed Throw. A warp was thrown at another but it missed by an inch or several leaving her without offensive powers for a while.

Nali meanwhile was being choked by the Batarian who was friends with the previous dead man, and he was gaining the upperhand quite quickly, soon Nali would be dead. Veronica attempted to line up a shot with her pistol, but her gun was knocked aside by another Moon who figured out that shooting in a space would end badly so he decided to take the hand to hand approach, with a swift punch to Veronica face, she stumbled backwards cursing her Carnifex knocked clean from her hands. She breifly over to see Otium was locked in combat with the remaining Moons. Another hit her in the stomach making stagger and cough. Ok, the moon was seriously starting to piss her off now. So fought back, throwing her own punches in response but hand to hand was never her strong point. So her attempt to fight back ended badly with her receiving another very solid punch to the face badly bloodying her nose, she fell back against the wall with a pained cry.

She saw that Nali was ok and had subdued her foe, Veronica called out to her while also clumsily blocking another strike from her opponent. " Nali! Shoot him! Shoot him now please!".

                  If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

                  [kitties!]Once the blurriness in her sight had disappeared, she saw that both of her comrades were fighting their own battles, unable to help each other.

                  [kitties!]"Nali! Shoot him! Shoot him, now, please!"

                  [kitties!]The asari raised her gun, and once she had a clear shot and Nali was sure she wasn't going to hit Veronica, she pulled the trigger. Nothing. Dammit, her clip was empty. When had that happened? Rather than dwelling on it, however, she did the first thing that came to mind. The lady chucked her M-5 at the Moon, and he grunted when its heavy handle hit him in the back of the head. Angered, he turned around just in time to receive the asari's knee to his gut. The merc buckled over, lowering himself just enough for Nali to grab his head and jerk it unnaturally around to the side with a quick snap.

                  [kitties!]"b*****d," the little vanguard hmphed as she dropped his limp form to the ground, and she looked up to the other two, "You guys alright?" It seemed that one to fall at Nali's hands had been the last one as Otium had defeated his own two. The asari half-nodded, taking the victory and saving it to enjoy for later. After all, if this whole thing didn't go well, this little win would've meant nothing.

                  [kitties!]The asari sighed, and she bent slightly to swoop her gun back up off the floor, reloading it as she stood up straight again. "Let's try that again," the maiden said, motioning to the door again and finally leaving the little break room.

"I reckon we should set a vending machine on fire and toss it out the window! Viva la Resistance!"



Veronica recoiled in slight fear as her foe leaned back for another punch, Nali appearently hadn't heard her, as there was no shooting going on at all. She jumped and gasped when she was greeted by the sound of solid pistol meeting soft underdeveloped Dark Moon skull. The Merc in a rage, forgot about his cornered target and turned to deal with Nali and reap vengence for the grevious insult of pistol tossing. However Nali quickly kneed him in the gut and then snapped his neck. She was getting rather fond of snapping things at this moment in time. Veronica got to her feet cluching her bloodied nose.

She retrieved her Carnifex and reloaded it quickly. She holstered the weapon and lowered her now blood stained armored hand and placed it at her side, blood began to drip slowly down her face and over her mouth. " Yeah, yeah I'm fine... I just need to brush up on my fist fighting skills. Thanks for the rescue, another punch from him and I'd be in a world of hurt, and think of the mess, I mean some poor schmuck has to clean all this up ya know". Veronica diligently followed Nali out of the break room walking behind her.

" Tell me honestly, does the blood make me look intimidating? If it does I'm keeping it until we're done here, I mean think about the Moons possible reactions! They'd be like, Argh! Oh no! She bleeding and looks rather scary, I've voided my bowels in sheer terror! Or... does it just look painful and messy?".

                  Owyn dived behind cover as soon as he heard a shot go off, but landed weirdly on the shoulder that he'd been shot in as pain blasted through his body for just an instant, before subsiding into a mere aching pain. Owyn pulled himself to his feet, picking up the Revenant he'd dropped at his side with his rather graceless leap into safety. Owyn brought himself up onto one knee and one foot, balancing his strong elbow on the crate he now knelt behind and firing wildly at the Moons that then poured into the door. Owyn was firing even more inaccurately than usual, as with each slight buck of the Revenant his shoulder hurt just a little bit more. Owyn cursed as he changed clips and momentarily observed the enemy; they were getting more numerous and he and Jask were the only ones in the room. Owyn returned to firing madly and hoped that the numbers would lessen as he and Jask fought.

                  His hopes came through! The numbers were thinning before long, and Owyn wasn't low on clips at all. Soon though, all the Moons seemed to retreat back into the door from whence they came before one of the cargo hold's machines brought in a collapsed monstrous metal beast and dropped it on the floor. Owyn's heart raced as it opened itself up and stood to form it's full self: A YMIR Mech. Owyn began firing at it, but stopped and yelped out in pain as the medigel finally wore off and his wounded shoulder became unusable once again. Reaching with his left hand to his knife, he yelled and charged towards the Mech but was swatted aside rather handidly and into a bunch of crates as the Mech advanced on poor Jask.
