Incidents

Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - Attack Team Summer had engaged the enemy. Summer's chatter filled the comms, marking targets and shouting warnings in clipped tones.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - Attack Team Milano had yet to engage the enemy. Before them sat a lovely vista- the clear Meuse river flowing sedately, the city of Mezieres nestled across its banks. Beyond that were forests, thick and green, rolling endlessly, or so it seemed, to the north.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 But the pretty view was soon interrupted by a far more disturbing sight. Three Evangelions came into view, clearing the tops of the trees. Two of them were white, with curved, long eyeless faces ending in exposed teeth and bright red lips; one held a shield, the other held a staff. Within the middle of them however was DEVA- hulking brute, 50 metres tall, its body burly and thick and clad in a seamless black carapace of angel silk and bone. Two leathery wings emerged from its back, so wide as to cover nearly 300 metres from wingtip to wingtip.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - "Target sighted. Attack Team Milano, engage the enemy. Remember, try to keep them off balance, lure them into the forests and narrow their avenue of attack. Don't let them pin you down!"
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Speeding over land and water alike in a giant, violet-colored blur, wings outstretched, both gleaming swords drawn.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 "I know already? I'm an expert-!!!”
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 The DEVA was suddenly there in her path, steamrolling ahead to meet her with its head slightly lowered. In an impressive display straight from old footage of American-style football games, it caught 04 in the midsection with one of its shoulders, and sent it into the air. It came smashing back down again several dozen meters away, rolling into an undignified heap in the middle of a damp patch of forest.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - "… Move the dreadnoughts to forward sector three. Lady Zhang, I'm counting on you to get up."
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 The Deva pushed its advantage, crouching for a moment before leaping across the distance. It landed just in front of 04, its taloned feet digging into the ground and drawing huge furroughs of torn up land and trees behind it. The Deva staggered slightly, and pushed its momentum forward, unveiling a powerful hand bearing long, wicked-sharp obsidian-black claws. All of a sudden they burned with an aura of light, the air around them shimmering with heat. The hand fell toward 04, brutal and lightning fast.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 But the claws stopped just shy of the Eva's armor, blocked by one of its swords. With tremendous effort, 04 lurched the blow off-course and took advantage of the Deva's resulting stagger to roll aside, splintering yet more trees before finding its knees, bracing the balls of its feet against the ground, and pushing briefly off into the air in an odd little hop.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 But the Evas pursued.
- MPEva%20pog.png?raw=1 Within seconds of making her escape, Yanmei would feel a sudden pressure on her head. For a moment her vision swam, spots of darkness blotting out the world around her- and those spots suddenly festering with nightmarish horrors that she didn't want to see, yet her eye was drawn to nonetheless…
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - A barrage of positron bolts sailed around 04, setting afire to the tops of trees as they went. The staff-wielding Harpy was struck, not enough to kill but enough to knock off-balance. The visions suddenly vanished.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Still alive and somehow standing, Yanmei let loose a few faint curses. 04 crouched down slightly. One of its weapons… changed. Shadows filled the length of the blade, thickening into a long, inky smear, and then - and eruption of fire and smoke pooled out around the Eva, washing quickly over the two Harpies. It was a strange sort of fire, seeming to suck in light instead of generating it. The colors on the bodies and trees it consumed warped and inverted. A moment later, 04 sprang out of the blaze, unharmed, landing a good distance away to assess the damage.
- MPEva%20pog.png?raw=1 The staff-Harpy lay in a crumpled mess, much of its body marred in burning black gashes; its head was split length-wise in half. The shield-Harpy still stood, however, although an arm was missing; nonetheless it bravely held its shield forward, trying to back 04 off away.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 It became apparent why very quickly; The Deva stamped its way through the forest, each heavy footfall setting the earth to shake. As it approached it reared back and swung out in a wide arc toward 04's exposed throat.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Which 04 miraculously dodged, springing closer back to the river. It took a somewhat more defensive stance…
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 And the Deva pursued, its movements becoming faster, its swings more angered. It was tiring of 04's evasiveness. It rushed 04, the shield-Harpy in tow…
Edgar3.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 "Judo check, punk!"
Edgar3.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 The stocky D-Titan came out of nowhere, catching the shield-Harpy in its stump-arm. It screeched in pain, which gave Edgar enough time to grab its torso and shield-arm, twist, then flip it onto the ground. He pinned it in place.
Edgar3.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 "Fuck it up, Zhang!"
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Yanmei did just that! For a second, 04 somersaulted over them both and then… slashes! A flurry of them right to the helpless Harpy's face. There was a great splash of dark blood.
- MPEva%20pog.png?raw=1 It jerked wildly for a few seconds, and then lay still, its blood filling the streets of Mezieres.
- MPEva%20pog.png?raw=1 But Yanmei would notice an odd movement from the wrecked Warlock. It began to twitch and shudder- before suddenly standing, shaking its head slowly as though waking from a sleep.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - "Lady Zhang, ignore it! Focus on the Deva!"
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 "Huh?! That doesn't sound like a good idea!"
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Not that the Deva was giving her much choice. It was already so close… She positioned herself between it and Edgar, giving it an experimental jab with the Imperial Herald.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 The Deva batted the sword aside, crouched, then lunged for 04's leg, claws splayed out!
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - Yanmei would hear a dull, echoing machine roar in the air above. Bomber VTOLs, streaking across the sky, trails left in their wake. They soared low, narrowing their attack path toward the staff-Harpy. Before it could react, the Dreadnoughts fired once more, positron bolts shattering its AT Field. The bombers opened up; metre-long missiles burst through the air, tearing gouges into the Harpy's ragged flesh. They burrowed deep into the head and chest, each one deeper than the last. The explosions started small, but it ended in a massive blast of flame and fire that sent the Harpy staggering helplessly backwards, before it collapsed into the already-burning forest of the Ardennes.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 04 sprang to the side once more, skipping lightly in the shallows of the river and then making a longer bound to the banks on the other side, wings moving slightly to assist with the glide
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 The Deva hesitated. It stared at 04, as though skittish of the water. Then, as though gathering its courage, it crouched, leapt across-
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - A dozen buildings in Mezieres suddenly split cleanly in half, the two halves sliding open before recessing into the ground. Large turrets emerged, each of them bearing six cannons a metre wide, loaded with hooks. They fired in unison, dozens of hooks- connected to black twisting cables- showering toward the Deva, catching on armour, small wounds, flesh, wing… The Deva's momentum stalled, and it fell mid-leap, plunging into the water.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - "Gotcha."
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - Hidden beneath the surface of the water were spherical capsules about a metre in diameter. There were at least a hundred, buried and painted in such ways as to blend in with the soil. All of a sudden they hatched, releasing clouds of chemicals into the Meuse river. Where the chemicals met water, they left ice in their wake. Within seconds, the river- in a wide circle around the Deva- was frozen solid.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 The Deva, figuratively, froze. Then it began to struggle, roaring in fury at the makeshift prison. At first nothing happened, but the struggling became more ferocious, more livid, and the ice began to crack and shudder.
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 - "Summer, your target's in position. Take it down!"
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 Within EVA-21 sat Michael, the Eva prone, lying in Paris-2, hands gripping a Positron Great Cannon; the gun itself was attached to a tall gun emplacement, a nest of cabling and portable generators. A Superheavy- its shield bearing four dozen burn marks and gouges- crouched next to it, double and triple-checking the systems. On the other side, EVA-14, Philosopher's Stone nestled against its chest, held its hands out toward the tip of the cannon, which glowed with swirling rainbow colours.
Henri%20Campaign.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 "All systems green! Power charge at 210% and holding!"
Ayanami%20Go.png?dl=0 Ayanami%20Eva%20Tiny%20Pog.png?dl=0 "I'm all ready! The funnel's stable!"
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 "Activating G-Type targeting computer now."
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 EVA-21 was encased in a black harness; from this harness now emerged a mechanical limb on which sat a targeting scope, as large as an Eva's eye. It positioned itself over the right side of 21's face. Within the Plug, Michael's view changed; a ream of targeting data now filled his vision. One window displayed approximate distance, elevation, wind speed, gravitational and magnetic effects; another was switched to thermal imaging. The main screen had turned a strange washed-out brown, however, with only the target visible as a bloody red. Three rotating reticles shifted around it, almost but not quite touching…
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 The ice cracked; the Deva's right arm burst outwards, steam rising from its burning claws. It stared up at EVA-04, and its eyes began to glow with a brilliant rainbow light.
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 Inside EVA-21, the three reticules connected and met. Within their sights was DEVA-02's head.
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 "Hi, Flo."
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 A beam of burning actinic blue soared across the country, guided gently by the magnetic field of the Earth, empowered by the charge of an AT Field. It shone brighter than the sun, and stopped at nothing. It struck DEVA-02 square between the eyes.
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 DEVA-02%20pog.png?raw=1 For a moment, Yanmei's vision would be filled with light, so bright that she couldn't see. The first thing she'd see was the outline of the Deva, arm raised to strike… But a moment later she'd see its head. Or rather what remained of it; a ragged stump with a gout of flame burning across it, the head little more than half a jaw and the right side of the skull, the armour melted, the brains within cooked black.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 Yanmei just stared for a moment, breathing hard.
Yanmei%20Pog.png?raw=1 EVA-04.png?dl=0 "W-woo. Yay for teamwork?"
WillCamp.png?dl=0 EVA-21%20Page.png?raw=1 "You couldn't say something cool?"
Florence%20Pog.png?raw=1 - At that moment, the rear hatch of the Deva blew open. An Entry Plug burst out of it, the jets shorting out over a moment into the air. It hurtled toward the city, the parachutes only half-deploying-
Edgar3.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 When Edgar reached out, angled his shield under it gently, and directed it into his outstretched hand.
Edgar3.png?raw=1 Titan%20Pog%20-%20Copy.png?dl=0 "Fuck you, Mikey! Zhang's got the right of it! You hear that, UN? Y'hear it? We're gonna TEAMWORK YOUR ASSES OFF!"
