PostSubject: [IO] Shattered   Wed Sep 24, 2014 10:28 pm

Conditions were melancholy at best. The sky was overcast, and a heavy rain from earlier in the day had stifled the usual exuberance displayed by the city's occupants. On his monthly trip into the city for supplies, Skylar walked down the damp concrete sidewalk, making sure to avoid the torrents of disgruntled pedestrians. While mentally reviewing his checklist for the day, he accidentally collided with someone briskly walking the opposite direction, and was promptly shoved to the ground. "Geez...You'd think they've never seen a little bit of rain before." He said under his breath.

By the time he stood back up, the seemingly rushed pedestrian was out of sight. Gathering himself, he turned back toward his intended route and began moving again, when suddenly...

A thunderous concussive force shattered the gloomy atmosphere of the city, as one of the larger buildings just down the street erupted into a smokey, debris-filled storm of destruction. Back on the sidewalk again, the explosion had knocked the wind out of the frightened fox and set off just about all of the car alarms within a mile radius. It wasn't until the crowds began to panic and scurry that Skylar fully grasped the situation.

The green hedgehog felt people bump and move against him as they advance further from the source of the sound he had heard. "The first day off I take in over a month, and this happens..." He grumbled with irritation, working his way up-stream towards the source. "Just what in the world caused it?" He muttered to himself, still trying to worm his way through the crowd.

Upon trying to navigate among the confusion, Clash caught sight of what seemed like a young vixen not too far off. Mobians, having much shorter stature, were more likely to get overwhelmed by large groups like this. "Hey! Are you alright?" Clash said, making his way over to the vixen and poking him on the shoulder.

Still a bit disoriented, Skylar got back to his feet. "Yeah, I-I think so..." He said to the hedgehog, as clouds of smoke and thick dust began to billow down the street. It was hard to think, let alone speak, with all the frightened pedestrians running about.

The sirens of various first-responder vehicles echoed through the fog-like smoke, prompting the fox to realize that quite a bit of people must've been caught in that blast. He looked to the hedgehog. "Think they could use some help? Probably a lot of injured people in there..."

Trying to focus on a hundred things at once, Clash looked over his shoulder and nodded. "More than likely. It seems like the explosion came from from the industrial section of town. I want to think it could be a machine malfunction, but an explosion of that caliber isn't something found in your everyday factory."

Clash looked around and then began to scan for a vantage point. "There's no way we'll be able to help anyone in time if we keep moving against the crowd. We'll need to take to the streets, there's less people in there." Clash walked over to a car and raised his arm, bashing his elbow into the window. He unlocked the car door and climbed in, reaching underneath the dashboard and yanking apart wires, crossing them with other colors. The car started up and he unlocked the passenger seat, and moved over. "You know how to drive?" He said, looking to the vixen and motioning to the driver's seat.

"Sure do...Though I'm a little more used to larger vehicles, as it were..." He climbed in, threw his tactical backpack into the back seat, and assessed the controls. "Eh, should be no problem. You should've seen how I got to town in the first place..." Skylar put the vehicle into gear and proceeded to drive down the street. The roadways were mostly traversable for now, but it was likely that things would be backed up near the point of detonation.

"...Name's Skylar, by the way." His eyes remained on the debris-littered road as he spoke. "Not from around here... This sort of thing happen often?"

"Name's Clash. And yeah. Much more often than I would like it to." He said, poking his head out of the sun roof and looking at the column of smoke. "Just a few more turns. Don't worry, Siri will get us there fine." Clash held up a phone and listened to it. "Recalculating..." Clash threw the phone away and squatted back into the car. "Nevermind Just follow the smoke."

As the car continued on, something was spread across the road ahead. Clash squinted and then his eyes widened. "Road spikes!" He shouted, holding onto his seat. If Skylar veered of of the way, then they could continue. If he didn't stop in time, they would lose all traction and crash right into a building.

Skylar uneasily smiled, amused by the shortcomings of the phone's GPS. His attention immediately shifted back to the road upon Clash's warning. With a bit of use from the handbrake, he was able to somewhat drift the vehicle around the hazard at the last second, barely missing the spikes. The now flustered fox shook his head. "This tin can is a deathtrap. Shoulda brought the big guy into town."

He slowed the vehicle as they approached the site. Curious citizens were seen standing around gawking at the scene. Abandoned cars covered in a layer of dust and ash blocked them from driving the remaining distance. "Guess this is our stop." Skylar said as he grabbed his pack from the back seat and exited the vehicle.

Clash reached behind his back and brought out two pistols, cracking his neck as he looked forward to the factory. "Time to make it rain." He said, walking through the gates and into the facility. He didn't even bother to look at the sign, which read, "Bio-Hazard Facility. Chemical Research and refining since 1988".

Clash looked around, seeing the smoke was in the back of the building. He checked over his shoulder and looked to Skylar. "Alright, this should be a piece of cake. Once we go in, watch my blind spot and I'll watch your's." He spoke, checking the clips on his twin pistols as he got ready to enter.

Stared somewhat confusedly as the hedgehog unholstered his firearms, but figured it to be foolish not to do the same. Afterall, the hedgehog obviously had experienced something like this before. "...Gimme a sec." Skylar placed his supply pack on the ground and pulled out his tactical vest. (He was already wearing his lower body equipment, but had previously decided to stow his vest in his pack for ease of travel.)

After equipping his armor, Skylar removed his Sub-machine gun from the pack and clumsily stuffed a few magazines into his vest's pouches. "...Yeah, alright I'm good to go." He awaited the hedgehog's lead.

Clash nodded and then kicked the door open, pointing his guns in first before moving the rest of his body into the corridor. He quickly looked around and ducked behind a wall. "Keep tight against the walls and only cross a corridor if clear." He said, crouching and moving against the wall of the hall.

Scanning about, one could easily tell something went down here. With papers all over, and the lights were out. Emergency lights had come on, which blinked red throughout the halls. Clash came to a stop as the hall split two ways. One labeled "Atomic Research" and other labeled "Nuclear Research". "Blueprint... I forgot which way the smoke came from. Which way do we go?" Clash asked, looking to Skylar.

The young fox moved through the hallway cautiously, maintaining his weapon's holographic sight on level. Keeping his eyes open for movement, he replied to Clash. "Let's check Nuclear first." Skylar took point and moved down the side of the hall, making sure to check the doorways they passed. The dim red auxiliary lighting certainly made it difficult to see.

Before long, the two approached a massive steel bulkhead door. It seemed as if its two sections had been forced apart with some sort of breaching charge. The two orange emergency lights on either side of it flashed with a strobe-like effect, further convincing Skylar that they were in the right place. "I'm no expert, but I'd say this is where things went down."

Clash walked around the room slowly, making sure to take in the entirety of the lab. "If there was an explosion here, we have to assume there's going to be dangerous substances loose around." He said, looking at a though a window that shown a completely empty room. In the center a small black ball gravitated, with some sort of energy around it.

Clash looked up and read the label 'Anti-Matter Chamber' Above the window. "It's scary to think they're testing things of this size inside the city... If something went wrong, then..." Clash shook his head and looked on. "We'll have to go ahead and look around some more. Thankfully, nothing here seems to be damaged too badly."

Skylar tried to stay within close proximity of Clash, making sure to check his corners as they went. "...It is a bit odd, isn't it? Didn't think this sort of stuff was allowed in such a highly populated area.", he said while observing the various pieces of experimental equipment strewn about the room. It certainly didn't bode well for the situation. Remaining vigilant, he followed the hedgehog's lead as they continued their sweep.

Clash nodded, turning another corner and scanning the lab. "I think it is illegal. Which would make sense why something would go down here like that explosion." Clash said, kneeling behind a flipped table as he peered his head over the top. "What the..?" He started, seeing G.U.N mechs moving capsules filled with some sort of bright green rocks.


Clash squinted and looked at the G.U.N mechs, getting his pistols ready to fire. "Damn G.U.N... They don't know how to leave well-enough alone..."

Skylar kept low behind a stack of metallic canisters, closely watching the mechs as they went about their task. He had heard some interesting rumors about G.U.N., and this suspicious situation only made them more plausible. Noticing Clash had readied his weapons, he disabled his weapon's safety and made sure his magazine was full. "Don't like the looks of this. What's the plan?", Sky whispered.

Clash stood up and pointed his pistols at the mechs. "Easy. We punch these bots full o' holes." He shouted, pulling the triggers on both guns. Empty casings fell to the ground and clattered as he fired, orange flashes coming from the end of the two guns as bullets hit the mechs. One bullet grazed the neck of one of them, and it stumbled back and hit the wall, dropping its container which shattered open and the rock sat on it's lap, glowing with an odd energy. The other held it's container in one hand and raised it's rifle arm, firing at the hedgehog. Clash ducked and reloaded behind cover, sliding new clips into his firearms. "Your turn." He said to Sky, taking a quick glance at the mech firing.

Whipping out from cover, Skylar let off a few quick bursts of well-aimed automatic fire into the chest of the assailing mech. Bright sparks flew outward from the machine as the rounds punched through its armored hull, sending the mech toppling backwards. He was especially careful to avoid hitting the unidentified material the bots were handling. Before he could acquire another target, out of the corner of his eye he noticed a third mech readying to fire. Skylar dove back behind cover just as a barrage of gunfire swept over his position, striking and ricocheting off of the metallic canisters.

As bullets began changing direction in every which way off the metal canisters, Clash felt something rip into his left shoulder and then a blaring pain run up and down his arm. He dropped the pistol in his left hand and gritted his teeth, feeling warm liquid start to seem through his fingers and run down his arm, making his jacket sticky and wet. The hedgehog held up the pistol in his right hand and quickly raised over the cover, firing a few rounds. One hit the G.U.N mech in the chest, punching a hole in it as the other shots missed. The mech kept firing as Clash slumped behind cover again, his aim failing him as the pain burned his focus.

Alarmed by his partner's injury and seeing that they were sufficiently suppressed, he quickly reached into one of his vest's pouches and removed a smoke grenade. This was one of his own designs; a smoke grenade with a special compound added capable of spoofing thermal imaging, which most of his previous mechanical opponents seemed to make heavy use of.

Pulling the pin with his teeth, he tossed it over the canisters and waited a few moments as the smoke began to heavily cloud up. The mech, seemingly confused by the wall of optics-proof smoke, continued to fire though the cloud, though his shots were substantially less accurate.  Skylar darted out from cover over to Clash. "C'mon, I don't know how many more there are, but we can't fight em from this position. You okay to run?"

Clash nodded and stood up, digging two of his fingers into hole in his arm. He bit his tongue as he pried the blood coated bullet out, letting it drop to the floor and clatter about as more red liquid began to come from Clash's arm. His sleeve was wet and stuck to his arm, and was warm and moist against his skin as he looked about. Seeing a pipe by the wall, he ripped the sleeve from his jacket and then thrust his wound against it, a hissing noise emanating as he gritted his teeth and closed his eyes. Pulling back, he tied the ripped sleeve around the sealed flesh and stood up. "...I'm good to go... You lead, I'll give cover fire..."

"Okay, let's go!" He bolted from cover and ran over to a set of double-doors, finding them to be jammed shut. With a quick glance back at the rapidly dissipating smoke, he turned back towards the doors and shouldered into them a few times until they loudly swung open, revealing an obscenely dark hallway. He broke into a sprint down the hall, hoping that they could get a decent amount of distance between themselves and the pursuing mechs, in an attempt to buy time for formulation of a plan. Hardly a quarter of the way down the hall, he found himself tripping over a heavy, limp object and skidding to a halt on his chest.
