    YOU ARE ALEX RASTON. You got Laurie to open up about his problems, hoping he at least had a horrible traumatic enough reason to try and sucker-punch you.

    Turns out he did. He's still got some baggage, but at least he's somewhere where he can maintain.

    You arrive back at the hangar, keeping your friend's secret and only confirm he did what he needed to do. The team gathers around, and you realize now is the time to make the choice as to who goes in the last slot for the Arena team:

    [ ] Mooch.
    [ ] Laurie.
    [ ] T-Pain.

    You tell them Laurie's going to be running as the third man on the team. Everyone accepts this, and Mooch says that he'll get to work on figuring out a good alternate load-out while the rest of you register for an Arena team.

    As you walk out, you notice that Elsie and Dave are avoiding eye-contact. And that Elsie is wearing a different shirt than this morning. And that Mooch is talking to some woman you've never seen before.

    "So.... you begin. What exactly happened while I was gone?"

    Dave shakes his head. "Man, I'm not even going to touch this one."

    Elsie's quiet as she climbs into the passenger seat. After a long moment, she starts to talk, as you start to drive. "Well, it wasn't actually that bad, until Dave ripped my shirt off."

    You stop the car, and put it into park. You look at her, unable to say anything.

    "Now you see," Dave begins from the backseat "This sort of awkward misunderstanding is what I was hoping to avoid."

    >Earlier at the hangar....

    You are Dave. Elsie just dragged you off to an empty corner of the hangar for an unknown reason. When you get there, you see a stereo, and Elsie suddenly acting nervous.

    You REALLY hope you're misreading this situation.

    "So THAT'S what this is huh? I always suspected..." You begin, as you slip your coat off.

    Elsie looks at you. "Wait, you already know what I was going to ask?"

    "Yep. Same thing all the ladies want." You catch the inside of one of the sleeves and whip your coat dramatically over your head, before tossing it right in her face. When she rips it off, you're already sliding your unbuckled belt back and forth behind your back. Her face goes CRIMSON.

    "T-that's not at all what I was talking about!"

    "Oh really now? Come on, I can't promise I'll be gentle, but I can promise it'll be fun."

    "What the hell? Do you really think I'd cheat on Alex?"

    "...Cheat on Alex? I thought you were angling for dance lessons. What with the stereo and the cleared floor space."

    "I... so what was that?!"

    "Well for one, I wasn't entirely sure what kind of dancing lessons you were looking for, and for secondly a tight-fitting belt and a loose billowy coat aren't great for dancing in. So I took them off, the only way I can."

    She looks confused, then embarrassed. Then angry, and she chucks a wrench at you. Ah well, it was worth it.

    "Alright, calm down El. You know I was just fucking with you. What sort of dancing did you have in mind?" The second wrench hits you right in the face.

    A few minutes later, she finally tells you about how Alex, not knowing any better, took her to a Jazz parlor. And then she sorta embarrassed both of them on the dance floor. You get the feeling she's exaggerating a bit, but you humor her. She then confesses that while she did kinda have fun, she wanted to actually not be terrible if/when they decided to do it again. So after a minute, you go grab Ari to help show her how it's supposed to be done, and then ask Mooch to come man the stereo after he relayed some sort of coordinates to Alex.

    At first she's awkward, but not nearly as bad as she said. After a few minutes she stops worrying about her tiny audience and focuses only on her own movements in relation to yours. Then, you accidentally slipped while she was spinning, and hooked one strap of her bra with your thumb. Due to the momentum in her spin, her top came right off like she was wearing drama clasps. And then she lost her balance, and crashed Topless into Mooch.

    Ari already sprung into action, pulling her light coat off to hand it to her. But slightly too late to keeping some new woman walking around the corner from seeing everything. That's when Mooch finally speaks up. "Hi Honey. Didn't know you were in town."

    You are Mooch. And your wife just walked in at a rather inopportune time. Somewhere between your greeting, and the first stomp aimed for the face, you realized there was probably a better way to say that.

    Somewhere between the third and forth attempted kicks, you realize that you're in a terrible position to try and dodge Morgan's continuing assault. You hear Dave say something about it really being nothing what it looks like, and then she stops trying to kick your face in.

    Dave helps you back on your feet. "So what was that, if it wasn't what it looked like?"

    "Oh, Elsie just threw herself at me half-naked."

    "So it was exactly what it looked like."

    "Yes. Wait, no, it wasn't. She threw herself at me because she was losing her balance, and was hoping I would catch her or break her fall."

    "So why was she half-naked?"

    "Because Dave ripped her shirt off."

    "....and you were doing nothing?"

    "Nope. Well, I was watching, playing the music."

    "So.... WHY did you decide to just watch?"

    "Aw come on Morgan, you know I can't dance."

    "Wait Dan- You." she points at Dave. "What just happened here?"


    "You know what? I don't care anymore. Matt clearly wasn't up to anything wrong."

    "Wait," Ari cuts in. "Who's Matt?"

    "I'm Matt!"

    "Then who is she?" She asks as she goes to take a sip of her iced tea.

    "Morgan? She's my wife."

    Ari spits out her drink. Must be a genetic thing.

    You are Alex Raston. Somehow, you're not even surprised that it wasn't what it sounded like.

    "So wait," Lawrence says from the back seat. "Mooch is married? Does that make me the only single guy in the group now?"

    "Actually, If the whole thing between Dave and Ari is serious, you might be."

    "I have no idea how I feel about this."

    You then arrive at the Arena.

    Walking in to register, you see a large blonde man arguing with one of the receptionists. "Sir, I understand that it isn't a common name, but I still need you to put a last name on the forms."

    "I don't have a last name."

    "Well, what would we do if another Fraide walked in here?"

    "There are none. I killed them and ate their power. HIGHLANDER STYLE."

    Lawrence sees him and his face shifts from neutral to irritated.

    "What's up?"

    "Oh, I just recognize him. Ran into him at a liquor store the other day."

    At the sound of his voice, the man turns. "Why HELLO there lovely. Fancy I should see you here."

    "Still a man."

    "Still not buying it."

    "Man, got them all fooled, huh?"

    "SPEAKING OF SIGNING UP~" The large man roars as he turns around, to see a normal looking person in all white handing the pen back to the woman behind the counter.

    "Yes, speaking of, you managed to waste all that time bickering instead of filling in ONE blank on the paperwork. Congratulations, you've made an ass of yourself in public for hours. Again."

    "Hey, fuck you Alex." For a moment you wonder hat the hell, before you realize this other man apparently shares your name. "Not like we're wasting company time, we're on vacation here."

    "Only you would think of gladiatorial combat as 'relaxing'."

    "And only you would try and weasel your way out of vacation time for more field work." He turns to your assembled party. "I'll see you in the Arena."

    "You know, I've never heard about this Order before."

    "We don't exactly advertise to the common man. Generally we just talk to people who own Libraries or large movie collections, people in positions of influence, so on and so forth."

    "Hardly picture somebody like Fraide in a library."

    "He's actually very professional while on the job. But my partner and I specialize in retrieving hard to get information."

    "Like what?"

    "Like occasionally there'll be some hidden vault in the middle of the wastes that gets uncovered, and then some bandit king or group of slavers with an appreciation for Shakespeare gets a hold of it, and tries to kill somebody going in to ask permission to copy the important bits. Or sometimes find Data for building some sort of super-weapon. Then we get sent in."

    "Huh. Easy job to get?"

    "For us, yes. But then we were raised by the order and trained for it from a young age."

    "That sort of training intense?"

    "It's effective. I speak seven languages fluently, I know sixteen different forms of martial arts and my reflexes have been honed and augmented to a super-human level. I'm also an S class core pilot."

    "Wow. They really need a bad-ass like you to crack open a vault of knowledge?"

    "Occasionally. Knowledge is power, and power is something reluctantly shared. Even if all we want to do is store it so that it's never lost again."

    "Huh. So what's with the White Clothing? Uniform?"

    "Not exactly. It's a personal choice."

    "How so?"

    "White clothes are very easy to mar. Even the tiniest scratch or smallest smear would be extremely visible at even a passing glance. It allows me to have a visible guide to where I got hit during training or in a real fight, and has had the unexpected benefit of psychological warfare in the past."

    "How so?"

    "On more than one occasion, due to smart maneuvering on my part, a pair of thugs emptied a few clips in my general direction. When they saw that they not only didn't hit me, but that I failed to even get dirty while running and jumping for cover and such, they promptly surrendered."

    So wow. Apparently this guy can dodge bullets, and wear clothing that makes it obvious that he's impossible to hit, while being as visible as possible. Anyone else, you might've called bullshit, but the calm matter of fact way he just said it makes you believe he might actually be that good.

    Before you can say anything more, you can hear Fraide getting into another altercation, and he heaves a dramatic sigh and leaves to deal with it. while he's gone, Ari comes back with the paper-work. She's already filled it out, properly, and you really only need to put your signatures down.

    You write in 'The Snaps' and hand over the paperwork, then return to your team.

    "Hey Alex, did you know our team needed a name?" Elsie asks.

    "Just found out actually."

    "Well, we need to come up with something."

    "Already did."

    Then the team name pops up on the board.

    "The Snaps. Tell me that isn't a reference to fucking cookies."

    "Then I will be forced to lie to you."

    "Come on Alex, let's see if we can change it."


    "Because it sounds ridiculous. Do you WANT to be the laughing stock? I can't tell if it's a name for a team, or some shitty band from the 60's."

    "I doubt WE'LL be the ones laughed at. Look at that, our opponents in the first round is Team 'Mo Betta'. Come on now, it's a temporary thing."

    "Dammit Alex, this is supposed to be serious. Back me up here guys."

    "Honestly, I don't give a shit what the team's called. Like Alex said, it's a one time thing. e can always change it later." Laurie comments.

    "We should've gone with Team Ramrod." Dave complains.

    "... You know what? Fuck it, I'm not flying under that banner, you guys can deal with it. Let's go back to base."

    Arriving back at the Base, you see that Mooch is hooking up the last of the modifications to Lawrence's Core.

    He finishes up quickly enough, and soon he and Laurie are out the door.

    "Where are they going?" Elsie asks nobody in particular.

    "Laurie wanted some alone time before the Tourney started. Go say goodbye to Hope properly."

    "....Oh...." A lot of the earlier anger drains out of her. "Hey Alex? Sorry about the whole freak-out in the War-Room back there. I mean, I like the goofy you usually, but.... time and a place? Didn't really feel like either to me."

    "Yeah, it's alright. It's a stupid name, but we can always change it later. Teams change names all the time, and for worse reasons."

    "Yeah, still. I think I was just a little too harsh."

    "Heh. Care to put your lessons to good use?"

    "Not really in the mood to pretty myself up for a night on the town."

    "Then don't. I'm pretty sure Mooch wouldn't mind if we borrowed his stereo. besides, you don't have to worry about embarrassing yourself in front of a crowd when it's just us."

    After a moment of considering this, she relents and leads you back to where Dave and Ari were giving her lessons earlier. After a feew moments of getting used to the beat, the two of you begin to swing happily away, unaware of anything but the music and your partner. You don't notice when your mother stops by to talk to you, and walks away with a smile when she choose not to interrupt your moment. Or the various members of your team and your support crew you notice you passing by and silently cheer you on. After what feels like both forever and not long enough, the music ends. You leave that tiny corner of the garage, and get some dinner before headed to bed. On the way, you discover that your mom stopped by to wish the team luck, and snuck in a small plate of cookies. You went to sleep without worrying about what was, or what will be.

    You are Lawrence Brenner. After a few minutes, Mooch said that it should be safe to go into the colony without a suit on. apparently due to something, something, techno-babble: the explosion, while technically nuclear in nature, didn't leave any amount of harmful radiation behind. Something about the isotopes not surviving well outside of containment.

    You walk into the remains of Hope. Your feet eventually lead you there, to the place where that Bus Alex grabbed came from. The place where she died.

    Let's spend Laurie's last fate point. I really want this to be good for him

    Looks like it's too late because of some premature rolling. Too bad, Laurie.

    I see two rolls and at least two fate point votes.
    But it's up to AC-Guy if this was a vote or just a first post situation.

    >You know, I'm just going to be nice and assume you guys didn't realize it was a pick one and not a 'roll then decide'.

    You stand there for a minute, unsure of what to do. You feel like maybe you should cry, but you don't really have it in you right now. Then you hear it.

    A... dog? What the hell?

    You look around and see a puppy barking at you. When you approach it, it runs away. When you try to walk away, it comes closer, barks, and then backs up.

    After a long moment you realize.... it's trying to tell you something.

    You begin to follow it. Over and through debris about a block away. You can see some scattered supplies and some bleached bones. This must've been where the buses left from, not over where you were.

    The little dog barks at you again, and then squeezes into a tiny hole in the side of one of the collapsed buildings. After a minute, it comes back out, barks, and goes back in.

    You loom around, and find an entrance that you might be able to squeeze through.

    Hot fucking damn! first roll ever and it brings the average down enough to succeed...still doing first 3 rolls right?
    >> AC-Guy 04/24/12(Tue)05:06 No.18840293
    As much as it pains you to admit, you fit pretty easily, and it's probably because of your small, girlish frame.

    Inside the partially collapsed building, you look around and then you hear... something... voices?

    You see the little dog walking down the stairs, and then stopping o look at you. A few moments later, it walks right past you, and around a corner.

    Choosing to ignore it, you walk down the stairs. the further down you get, the more intact the building seems to be. Reaching the bottom, you see something incredible. About a half a dozen people, sitting around talking quietly.

    After a minute, they look up and notice you. Then you hear the whispers...

    "....he looks like...."

    "....close to what she...."

    "....take him over there...."

    One of them, a kid of maybe twelve, leads you over to a bunk in the next room. As he does so, he explains.

    "A minute after the buses left, she bent over and started puking. Then she said 'we have to get below'. I helped her, and a couple people followed us. A minute later, we heard a loud noise, and then nothing. We tried to go up, but the way was blocked. So we stayed. There was some food and water here, in case something happened to the rest of the town."

    "She?" And then you see her. She's sick, clearly in a bad way. But she's alive. Kate's here.

    You go back up top, sliding out the way you came, and then you get a hold of him. "Mooch, get your ass down to where the Old Town hall used to be. We have survivors."


    "You heard me. At least one of them is sick too, so hurry."

    You then go back inside, to see who can help make the entrance wide enough to carry Kate out. on the way there, you see the dog that lead you here, around the corner you walked past to go downstairs. A beam had fallen n it and killed it. It's clearly been dead as long as the colony.

    Alright guys, that's it for tonight. Like always, post questions and comments in the crunch/general thread, I'll answer what I can, and tell you if I can't.

    On an off note, does anybody know what happened to that Tarot guy? He was here for a while, and then he just sort of... stopped posting.
