Aline Reborn

[16:24] <@Minaplo> ["… Doctor! We're picking something up!"-
[16:24] <@Minaplo> ["What is it? Can we get confirmation?"-
[16:24] <@Minaplo> ["Uhh, negative, sir-"-
[16:25] <@Minaplo> ["We'll need to do a visual. Send a team to the LCL retaining pool, now-"-
[16:32] <@Minaplo> [After the battle with Uriel, EVA-00's entry plug had been emptied into a special retaining pool, so as not to dilute the contents. For weeks, a team led by Yui Ikari had been hard at work trying to reincorporise the mess into Aline- to no avail.-
[16:33] <@Minaplo> [Now, Sophie Gagnier was kneeling by the edge, looking pale, worried, a little desperate, a towel held in her hands.]
[16:38] <Aline> There was, at first, just indistinct motion. Then what looked like a dark figure moving through the fluid… until it emerged! The face was subtly different - a bit more rounded, but also slightly more defined in a few places around the edges. In fact, that could describe the whole body, as its nude, LCL-soaked form rose haltingly from the pool. Longer hair by a bit, more shape to her
[16:38] <Aline> curves, and when she stood to her full height, she was a good few inches taller. It wasn't /quite/ like an older Aline, because she also seemed less… airy than before, with a lot more solid definition to her form. But as soon as she emerged, she stumbled a bit, starting to fall…!
[16:43] <@Minaplo> [… And was quickly caught by Sophie, who quickly wrapped her in the towel. "It's ok, I've got you- stretcher! Come on, hurry up!"-
[16:44] <@Minaplo> [The medical team was rushing over, led by Dr. Clement, paramedics in tow. He crouched over Aline, testing her vitals as best he can. "Heart rate's a little slow, temperature's low- let's get her going."]
[16:45] * Aline briefly reached up with a hand, and mumbled something rather incoherent… before collapsing, already sounding like she was dozing off into sweet sweet unconsciousness.
[16:48] <@Minaplo> [Aline was placed onto the stretcher, and quickly carried away…-
[16:53] <@Minaplo> [From the command centre, Gendo Ikari stared out at the scene impassively.-
[16:55] <@Minaplo> ["It's like you said." Said Dr. Yui Ikari, at his side. "She managed to return of her own accord."-
[16:57] <@Minaplo> ["Mm. Although not identical. The same pattern of idiosyncratic physical developments as we saw in de Pteres and the others."-
[16:59] <@Minaplo> ["Caine knew of that, didn't he? He tested it…"-
[16:59] <@Minaplo> ["Yes." Said Gendo Ikari. "What else do we know? Was the passenger retained?"-
[17:06] <@Minaplo> ["Yes. Even in the collapsed form, the E-Type AT Field continues to do its duty."-
[17:08] <@Minaplo> ["Fortunate." Said Commander Ikari. "A being like that would have started to try to reform if it had taken too long. Considering its… History with EVA-00, we're fortunate it didn't hijack the unit directly in the field."-
[17:08] <@Minaplo> ["Could it be that that was Metatron's goal?" Asked Yui.-
[17:08] <@Minaplo> ["Not exactly that, but something akin to it. Definitely probing Blanc's defenses. Testing the field. Gathering data. We'll have to keep an eye on them."-
[17:10] <@Minaplo> [Yui nodded.-
[17:10] <@Minaplo> ["Yui."-
[17:11] <@Minaplo> [Yui turned.-
[17:11] <@Minaplo> ["Order the Simonides twins to the bridge. It's time for them to see what they have waiting for them."-
[17:11] <@Minaplo> ["… Yes, Commander."]
