Uriel S Judgement

[06:36] <AdEvaGM> [[Session 61: NEON GENESIS EVANGELION. Date: 25th of August, 2017. Episode Title: Uriel's Judgement.-
[06:42] <AdEvaGM> [5 AM, August 25th.-
[06:42] <AdEvaGM> [Sophie yawned, stretching in her seat, getting to her feet. "Night shift is such a drag."-
[06:43] <AdEvaGM> ["Yep." Fred leaned back in his seat, shooting her a casual smile. "Hey, since you're up, you mind getting some coffee?"-
[06:43] <AdEvaGM> ["What, you've got two perfectly good legs…"-
[06:44] <AdEvaGM> ["I do." He said, smirking. "But you've got two perfectly lovelier legs that it's only fair to-"-
[06:44] <AdEvaGM> [There was a sharp beeping from the console. Fred swivelled around.-
[06:44] <AdEvaGM> ["What is it?" Asked Sophie, leaning over his shoulder.-
[06:44] <AdEvaGM> ["The Gamma Array's picked up something in Quebec. Hold on."-
[06:45] <AdEvaGM> [An image appeared on the wide NERV command screen.-
[06:45] <AdEvaGM> [A green wetland, full of lakes and creeks and brooks, a sign of the new rainy Canada. But…-
[06:46] <AdEvaGM> [A black dot was burning its way across it, literally burning- grass fires were spreading out from it, leaving ruin in its wake- water turned to steam.-
[06:46] <AdEvaGM> [In its wake came hundreds of smaller dots…-
[06:46] <AdEvaGM> ["Holy shit." Frederic muttered. "We have to beat to quarters. Sophie! Send the alarms up, tell the Colonel we've sighted Uriel!"-
[06:47] <AdEvaGM> [TWO HOURS LATER.-
[06:48] <AdEvaGM> [The four Evangelion units seemed to be trying to outrun the sun as they screamed across the sky towards the west. "Status report. All hands report in." Came Marianne's curt voice.]
[06:51] * Sept responded sharply, any fatigue long gone by now. "EVA-01, standing by. Where are they headed, Marianne? Any cities where we can intercept it?"
[06:52] * Aline wasn't that tired either, though it might be because she hopped herself up on a lot of calorie loading and a bit of caffeine. Those kilos of tea had to go /somewhere/. "I'm not sure we'll be engaging it there."
[06:54] * Yanmei for her part, still looked pretty exhausted, her face drawn together tightly. "Fighting in a city be a bad thing for civilians anyway?" She mumbled. "Ah… 04 reporting in. All things normal."
[06:55] <AdEvaGM> ["There won't be any city-fighting. We're taking this thing on in the western Quebec wetlands." Said Marianne. "Preliminary reports tell of -immense- heat radiating from the body, enough to vaporise the water and incinerate the grass around it."]
[06:57] <Yanmei> "It's not hot enough to affect us, though?" Yanmei said hopefully.
[06:58] <AdEvaGM> ["… It might be."]
[07:00] <Yanmei> "Hm." Yanmei frowned, displeased. "Then I guess we try to keep our distance from that thing until we're in a position to determine by how much."
[07:00] * Aline muttered a bit. "At least it'll be impossible to miss under thermal imaging…"
[07:03] <AdEvaGM> ["The enemy's accompanied by large amounts of Angelspawn auxiliaries. The Tsetse wings from Paris-2 are going to try their best to take them out."-
[07:03] <AdEvaGM> [The new state-of-the-art fighter-bombers lazily flew by EVA-00, their sleek lines giving them an almost unnatural sense of movement.-
[07:04] <AdEvaGM> ["William, you're on fire support."-
[07:04] <AdEvaGM> ["Yes, ma'am."-
[07:04] <AdEvaGM> ["Yanmei and Aline, I want you to take up the middle, at medium range. Aline, try to focus your attacks on the Angelspawn for now- Yanmei, I want you to focus on the Angel."]
[07:05] <Yanmei> "Yes Ma'am."
[07:06] <Sept> "I don't expect to accomplish much by getting up close. I'll support however else I can."
[07:06] <Aline> "Acknowledged!"
[07:07] <AdEvaGM> ["That's right, Sera. I want you to probe its defenses- if it gets too much, fall back and shield the others."-
[07:07] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel, we're coming up on the target now."-
[07:08] <AdEvaGM> [Aline and Yanmei would recognise it as the Angel they'd seen, all that time ago, on Skald Island. It was insectoid, mostly exoskeleton- its core was hidden inside its 'mouth', and it scuttered along on long pointed legs. In its wake slithered hundreds of Gazardiel spawn, each covered in their own blackened carapaces.-
[07:09] <AdEvaGM> ["Paris Regiment- engage!" Said Marianne sternly. "Gagnier, try to see if we can bring Aline's SR down-"-
[07:09] <AdEvaGM> ["Yes ma'am!"]
[07:20] * Yanmei touched down to the earth only briefly before jogging forward, yanking a bolter out in to the open as she went. She didn't make it too far, however, before a wave of blistering heat wrapped around her. "Ngh… Seriously?!"
[07:26] * Aline noticed Yanmei starting to get in trouble with the approach, but… She herself moved closer only by a little bit, sending out a wave of force at one of the hordes! Too bad they were going to deflect it. "Ah? As I thought, it's going to be trouble!"
[07:40] * Sept moved up in line with 04, laying down some fire in the direction of the advancing hordes of Angelspawn. "We'll just have to concentrate on- wait, what's it-"
[07:41] * Zack is now known as ZackSleep
[07:42] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel! That signal-"-
[07:42] <AdEvaGM> ["It's Metatron!"-
[07:43] <AdEvaGM> [… But that isn't what Sera heard.]
[07:49] * Sept spoke in a pained voice, holding his head with both hands, as if struggling with a particularly nasty headache. "Oh… Ouacra cocha o..?"
[07:49] <AdEvaGM> ["… Sera?"-
[07:50] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel! High energy reaction inside the target-!"-
[07:50] <AdEvaGM> ["ALINE! MOVE!" Shouted William, dodging away a split second before…-
[07:53] <AdEvaGM> [Its entire body seemed to go rigid for a moment, bright energy shining through the segments on its long insectile body- before it accumulated within its mouth, its core. The entire thing glowed with blinding energy, unleashing a beam of light that was painful to look at. For a second, EVA-00 was obscured from view…]
[07:54] * Aline tried to dodge the first time, before raising her AT Field. "This is… not gonna be… enough…!"
[07:54] <Sept> EVA-01 slipped, for a moment, supporting itself on an arm. It stood up again soon enough, but Sera's wordless voice joined William's in attempted warning. "Minoi ay Cheba! Givomana seno!" This seemed to be directed at something else than Aline, as it was accompanied by a sharp punch toward his plug's instruments.
[07:56] <AdEvaGM> ["What the hell is Sera going on about!? Sera, respond!"-
[07:56] <AdEvaGM> [The second Aline's Evangelion was revealed- burned, still standing, Uriel immediately responded.]
[07:57] <Aline> This time - /this/ time, Aline knew what she had to do, and tumbled out of the way, but… "Shit, I can't see! Too bright!"
[07:59] <AdEvaGM> ["It's focusing on Aline." Said Marianne. "William, try to take some of the heat off her. Aline, if you can, evasive maneuvers- go as fast as you can!"]
[08:03] * Aline nodded, though she seemed a bit winded, not from feedback but from something else, like… almost like she was distracted by something (namely, her AT Field weakening). "Ah, right. I'll try my best."
[08:03] <AdEvaGM> ["The entire body is one big funnel." Said William, eyes narrowing. "It's armour is a -gun-."]
[08:05] <Aline> "…Yeah, I'm… gonna pull out for a second until I can see something other than purple sparkles." 00 winked out into its familiar bloody snowflake that showed that Aline had opened a dirac sea…
[08:08] * Yanmei was still staring at 01 in utter bewilderment, shaking her head slightly. "I'm sticking to the plan! Whatever they're doing, don't let them herd you!" 04 dashed forward again, slipping around the barrier of small chittering bodies that had been slowly forming between her and the Angel, Uriel. There. A nice clean opening…
[08:09] <AdEvaGM> [William flew in formation with Yanmei, landing nearby. "Yanmei, I'm going to neutralise, but I need your help to get a shot off! Neutralis-aargh!"-
[08:09] <AdEvaGM> [The heat at this level was immense, and the armour on EVA-21 began to spark and cook.]
[08:11] <Yanmei> Yanmei's eyes widened slightly. "No! Weiss-Xylander, fall back immediately!"
[08:11] <AdEvaGM> ["I must- hss- I must disobey! If I don't it'll…"]
[08:14] * Sept breathed heavily, took another look across the battlefield, and tried to pull himself together. "Seno santonoi-aypa," he told Aline, and approached the throngs of Gazardiel.
[08:16] <Yanmei> "-I'll- handle neutralisation. You focus on that fire, and shooting the damn thing!" She was scowling. "You're our best gunman? If anyone can injure it from a distance, it'd be you."
[08:18] <AdEvaGM> ["But I need to be close- I don't have any positron weaponry! I'm fine, we can do this together!"]
[08:25] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel, there's a message." Said Frederic. "Matthew 01 is standing by with N2 payload."-
[08:25] <AdEvaGM> ["…" Marianne shook her head. "Not yet. We still have a chance.]
[08:36] <AdEvaGM> [The hordes scrambled towards Sera madly, claws lashing out, scythes stabbing, ignoring the bombs as they fell…]
[08:39] <Yanmei> "…" 04's AT Field shifted, and Yamei let a bolter shot fly, adding to the sound of explosions that rocked the battlefield elsewhere. When the smoke cleared, however, the Angel didn't have a mark on him…
[08:40] <AdEvaGM> [The thing's carapace had almost certainly melted and -reformed- to cover the shot…]
[08:41] <Sept> The pilot's yell of pain, at least, was entirely recognizable. But the Spawn were still far from getting through his armor…
[08:41] <Aline> And it was at that point that Aline returned, 00 holding out an arm as something… changed about its AT Field. "I can't protect myself from its blasts /and/ efficiently go after the hordes, so I'm going to try for precision attacks against the main Angel. Sera, keep them busy!" She had no idea he was languagefucked, thanks to Dirac comms-breaks.
[08:44] <Yanmei> "That thing's armor…" Yanmei muttered. "Think you can break through it, Weiss-Xylander?"
[08:45] <AdEvaGM> ["I'll try to go one better. Let's see if I can finish it!" He lowered his Heavy Railgun- Saint Joan- and aimed… "Firing!"-
[08:45] <AdEvaGM> [An almighty crash as the cannon fired, a deadly round hurtling towards the core…-
[08:45] <AdEvaGM> [… Only for the core to be instantly coated in blackish carapace, negating the shot entirely.]
[08:46] <Yanmei> "What?!" In the entry plug, Yanmei reacted, jolting slightly. "What -is- that thing? It's not an AT Field…"
[08:47] * Aline stared forwards rather focusedly. "…It must have some kind of protection around its core. We might have to just pick it apart piece by piece!"
[08:54] <Yanmei> "Piece by Piece," Yanmei echoed. She shook her head. "Don't know how yet. Still, hell of a shot, Weiss-Xylander."
[08:55] <AdEvaGM> ["… Thanks."-
[08:55] <AdEvaGM> ["Will, Yanmei." Marianne's voice. "Something's wrong with Sera. But we need those auxiliaries -dead-. Move to engage the hordes!"]
[08:57] <Yanmei> "Will do. The faster we take them out, the faster we can concentrate all our efforts on this tough guy."
[08:59] * Sept stood his ground, now aggressively wading against their flow and cutting wide arcs through their forces with his blade, cursing in alien languages all the while.
[09:04] <AdEvaGM> [Uriel turned its gaze back to Aline, its carapace glowing- it unleashed a blinding solar beam…]
[09:07] <Aline> …Which 00 just /bathed/ in. Aline knew now to cover her eyes hard, but the Evangelion? Seemed just right as rain in the beam now. "…It works."
[09:10] <AdEvaGM> [… And was followed immediately by a high-powered explosive shot.]
[09:12] * Aline /now/ commenced with the dodging, doing a quick, well-timed sway out of the angle of the shot…!
[09:12] <AdEvaGM> [Leaving a huge crater behind- on top of other craters, no less.]
[09:31] * Yanmei was suddenly on the move, the bolter going back into hiding and the Majestic Imperial Herald ejecting from a wing dock. "Engaging the horde now?" And she did, with gusto, sending little chunks flying with both of her blades.
[09:32] <AdEvaGM> ["Aline, now! Let's catch them in a cross-fire!" Shouted William, taking to the air…]
[09:32] * Aline nodded in her comms window. "Yeah, in hindsight… I have no choice, it can pierce my defenses no matter what I do, so…!" She released a powerful wave…!
[09:32] * Sept shot his comrades a glance in the midst of the fighting, grateful for the help. He kept his mouth shut.
[09:32] <AdEvaGM> [Followed by William's…-
[09:32] <AdEvaGM> [The blades, of field, of sword- ripped through the Horde with ease, leaving a pulpy mess behind.]
[09:52] <Yanmei> "Well done! Now for the next group!"
[09:53] <AdEvaGM> [Light shone down Uriel's carapace…-
[09:53] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel, readings show some -massive- buildup somewhere in the body, beyond even the us-"-
[09:53] <AdEvaGM> [A full stream of solar bolts swept across the field of battle, striking towards EVA-00!]
[09:54] * Aline tried her hardest to dodge, but it… just… wasn't… enough! "Agh!"
[10:09] * Yanmei pressed forward with her swords again, grunting as they hit the others remaining. "Hang in there!"
[10:15] <AdEvaGM> ["Now! Everyone, full attack on the last group!"]
[10:20] * Disconnected

[10:22] * Now talking in #nervfrance
[10:23] <AdEvaGM> ["And to finish it off!" William unleashed his last wave- which finished them. "Just us and Uriel now!"-
[10:24] <AdEvaGM> ["Yes! Sera, can you hear me?"]
[10:24] <Sept> "…"-
[10:24] <Sept> "…yes."
[10:25] <AdEvaGM> ["Thank God! We need you to move in and neutralise Uriel!"]
[10:27] <Sept> "Neutls- I, -yes-." Sera managed, sounding somehow amazed at… everything. "I will," he added, after some thought.
[10:27] <Aline> 00 moved, as if to start aiming, but then… ground to a halt suddenly.
[10:28] <AdEvaGM> ["… Colonel. Colonel!" Panic in Sophie's voice. "Aline's lifesigns-"-
[10:28] <AdEvaGM> ["What? No- that can't be. Feeds, give me the feeds!"-
[10:28] <AdEvaGM> ["Sh-" Sophie let out a horrified gasp. "No…"]
[10:29] <Sept> "Wh-what is it? Say it!"
[10:30] <AdEvaGM> ["She's gone…" Murmured Frederic in quiet horror. Sophie was having trouble holding it together…-
[10:30] <AdEvaGM> ["M… -Metatron-. It's been attacking her every chance it gets." Spat Marianne, anger and… Disappointment in her tone.]
[10:38] <Yanmei> "Blanc…?" Yanmei regarded the silent EVA from her position across the field, before a slow, sick feeling took hold. "Goddamn it!" She sprang at the Angel, slashing furiously at it, but to no avail.
[10:40] <Sept> "What do we do? Someone can take her back if that does anything to help! Talk to us!"
[10:42] <AdEvaGM> ["N-No, there's… The best we can do is focus on the mission. Don't… D-Don't bother trying to salvage the core. Just destroy it." Marianne's hands were tightening…-
[10:42] <AdEvaGM> ["No." William said, calm, quietly.-
[10:43] <AdEvaGM> ["No. This… This isn't… What I saw." He shook his head, a tone of frantic panic entering his voice. "This isn't supposed to happen! This isn't good enough! I don't -want- this-!" He swivelled towards Uriel, his eyes widening, widening, his teeth gritting, the blood dripping from his eyes. "GET OUT OF MY MIND!" His words collapsed into an incoherent roar, opening fire, a railbolt striking
[10:43] <AdEvaGM> the core directly, sending the Angel scattering backwards in pain.-
[10:44] <AdEvaGM> [There was an instant counterattack, a solar strike igniting EVA-21- and William screamed, in pain and rage…]
[10:58] <Yanmei> "William!" Yanmei's strikes grew more fierce as she gave chase, the Imperial Herald sparking against Uriel's carapace. A few overcame its defenses, finally drawing blood…
[10:59] <AdEvaGM> [Sobbing. Sobbing in his plug. Yet his Eva was moving with almost robotic calmness…]
[11:01] <Yanmei> "William… Hey, can you hear me? We've got him. Just a little more and we can go home, okay?"
[11:03] <Sept> "Don't you want to finish him yourself, William?"
[11:09] <AdEvaGM> ["I-I-"-
[11:10] <AdEvaGM> [His words were cut off- Uriel's attack was remorseless.]
[11:15] * Yanmei clenched her jaw at that. Still, she kept trying, with words and otherwise, even though her attacks were being turned aside by the monster's AT Field now. "C'mon, William! Are you still with us? Don't take that crap from her! Hit back! You can do it!"
[11:22] * Sept gave up with the negotiations and gave chase to the Angel, hacking away at its legs, for what little use it had for them.
[11:26] <AdEvaGM> [It let out a low roar of pain- then, the sucking of air as it vanished…-
[11:26] <AdEvaGM> […"Look out! Both of you! A solar attack-!"]
[11:40] <Yanmei> "-!" Yanmei managed a sudden leap to the side, landing in a crouch before sprinting after the Angel, swords aimed for the latest weak spot opened up by Sept..
[11:42] * Sept dove away in time, but just as he was scrambling back to his feet, the sheer force of -another- barrage slammed him back onto the ground. He could feel the flames licking at the flesh from between the cracks in the armour…
[11:43] <AdEvaGM> ["… It's about time those special ablatives came in handy."-
[11:46] <AdEvaGM> [Uriel was bleeding from a dozen wounds at this point but its AT Field remained infuriatingly strong. EVA-21's gossamer wings glowed brightly for a second, a powerful shot fired- and it slammed harmlessly into the field. "NO!"]
[11:47] <Sept> "TRY HARDER! ALWAYS!" All of Sera's strength couldn't get him past that field, either.
[12:00] <AdEvaGM> [Uriel scuttled away, cautiously…-
[12:00] <AdEvaGM> [… A spike of painful electronic screeching hissed over Yanmei's comms.-
[12:00] <AdEvaGM> ["Yanmei-?! No-"]
[12:06] * Sept grimaced at the sound. "-See-? She's giving more than you are."
[12:08] <Yanmei> If Yanmei made any cries at all, they were lost over the electrical complications. 04 tottered and clutching its head in agony, and then went still, just as 00 had minutes ago.
[12:09] <AdEvaGM> ["Sera, be quiet!" Said Marianne, her voice hissing with worry. "What's-"-
[12:09] <AdEvaGM> ["We- the nerve pulses are reversing- oh no…"]
[12:15] <Yanmei> Silence and then…-
[12:20] <Yanmei> 04's eyes flared crimson. Its shoulders lifted beneath its bulky, creaking armor, and its head tilted back, and it opened its jaws for a long eerie, -wrathful- howl!
[12:21] <AdEvaGM> [Uriel crouched, clearly wary- a volley of solar bursts hurling themselves at the new berserker.]
[12:25] <Yanmei> Which bounced harmlessly off its AT Field save for one. It knocked the bolter out of the EVA's hand before it could throw it away personally… and the berserker reacted, springing after Uriel with the Imperial Herald raised high like a mighty club.
[12:28] <AdEvaGM> [Uriel scattered backward…-
[12:28] <AdEvaGM> [A heavy thud. William tossed his railgun aside, a pair of bolters dropping from his wing docks.-
[12:29] <AdEvaGM> ["Blessed be the Lord my rock, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight."-
[12:30] <AdEvaGM> [BANG. The explosive shot, aided by a funnelled AT Field, ripped the legs into chunks of meat and carapace, sending Uriel shrieking to the ground. "There! Now!"]
[12:37] <Sept> "That's more like it!" Sera pushed himself into the Angel's personal space and drove his sword deep into its midsection.
[12:48] <AdEvaGM> [It howled-
[12:48] <AdEvaGM> [But it wasn't the only one. EVA-21 spasmed, hands reaching for its head. "NO! MY-My mind-H-Help…!"]
[12:58] <Yanmei> 04 let out a low, rumbling noise in the back of its throat. By this time, the F-type equipment was starting glow and ignite in places from the sheer proximity to its prey. And yet, it was less concerned with this than it was with savagely tearing at Uriel with the Herald as it turned tail and tried to flee. It stared after it, eyes also alight, its metal helm darkening.
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> [Bleeding and wounded, it wouldn't stop, kiting away from them both, trying to… flee!-
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> ["It's trying to get-"-
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> ["Colonel, William-"-
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> ["No. Eject the-"-
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> ["No response, Colonel!"-
[12:59] <AdEvaGM> ["Damnit, why…?"]
[13:10] * Yanmei tore after it, and the air currents rolling over it fanned the bright new flames. It swiped at Uriel with a claw, slicing through a layer or two of AT Field, but getting little closer. At this it roared, and -raged-.
[13:15] <AdEvaGM> [The Angel slammed into the ground, gouging huge chunks out of the wetlands…-
[13:15] <AdEvaGM> ["Sera, it's weak! Finish it!"]
[13:16] * Sept helped as much as he could without getting in the beast's way. "Try… harder..!" He hacked at the Angel's shell, seemingly impenetrable, but the note of the strike eventually began to get lower… until the shell shattered, the blade sinking through the rest much too easily.
[13:18] <AdEvaGM> [The Angel spasmed. For a second, it sat stock still…-
[13:19] <AdEvaGM> [… Then it let out a low, angry cry of utter despair. The fire in its carapace was growing brighter, to match its wail-
[13:19] <AdEvaGM> [The core erupted in solar energy, washing over the Evangelions, vaporising the low-flying tsetses…]
[13:27] <Yanmei> The explosion died away slowly, but the hulking figure of 04 remained, still envoloped in horrific flames. Another furious howl - it stamped at the spot where the Angel's broken body had been moments before as if robbed, and then turned away, and… stood there. -
[13:27] <Yanmei> A minute passed, and then another, but its eyes remained just as bright as ever. Finally, it began to lope away.
[13:28] <Sept> EVA-01 stood nearby, eventually sitting down wordlessly. It turned to look at 04's back as it went off on its adventure. "Goodbye," Sera said.
[13:31] <Yanmei> There was, of course, no response from the EVA aside from the screech of tearing metal and a last gutteral noise at the slight bit of effort it took to wrench the F-type equipment free. The Herald lay discarded on the ground. Bits of armor began to do the same, leaving behind a fiery trail.
[13:32] <AdEvaGM> ["Prepare for extraction." Said Marianne, tired, as she watched the Eva go. "We'll have to collect it later…"]
