Who

Aceae [Worldship] [Sci-Fi]

Who and Cactra'll awaken in a small pitch black cell.

"Cactra?!"
Metakirb

She opens her eyes.
Who

And wont be able to see a thing. Who frantically waves his arms round trying to find her.

"Are you here?!"
Metakirb

I'm here.
Who

Who hugs her tightly, immensely relieved.

"Are you okay?"
Metakirb

Yeah, Where are we?
Who

"I'm not sure, I mean I recogise the technology but there's no way..."

He starts to rummage through his pockets.

"Found it!"

He flicks on a torch, the room is entirely bare, the no sign of doors or windows.
Metakirb

Cactra sighs.
Who

"Well it could be worse, I mean it's not exactly five star but it's better than where we could have ended up."
Metakirb

I'm just getting tired of this happening every time we go anywhere.
Who

"Really? You don't even think this is a little exciting?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

"If you didn't want to come why didn't you say?"
Metakirb

I thought we were going somewhere nice, not getting knocked out and locked in a room somewhere!
Who

"I promise you, will get of this and then we'll go somewhere nice. Okay?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Right then. Hold this."

Who holds the torch out to her before getting up and starting to run his hands over each wall.
Metakirb

She nods and holds it.
Who

"Ah ha!"

A couple of runs with the screwdriver over one wall causes it to seemingly melt, revealing a dark, dusty corridor beyond.

"Might want to keep that torch."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Come on then."

He heads out in to the dark, coughing as dust fills his lungs.
Metakirb

Cactra follows.
Who

"Well what do you think?"
Metakirb

She shrugs.
Who

"Nothing? Seriously? We know what ever brought us here has at least some time travel capacity..."

He knocks on one of the walls, letting out a clang.

"...it's metal and it looks like no one's been here in a while. You can't draw anything from that?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

He really wants to comment, but doesn't as they come to a door.

"Bring the light a bit closer would you?"
Metakirb

She nods and does so.
Who

The door has the word ACEAE printed on it in blocky white letters.

"That mean anything to you?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

"Didn't think so. Okay we need to find a control panel, should be a little screen near here. I'll take that wall you take the other."

That said he starts feeling his way around the left wall.
Metakirb

She goes the other way.
Who

Cactra'll find a little screen and a set of keys embedded in to the wall.
Metakirb

Found it.
Who

"Brill, is it working?"
Metakirb

I'd guess so.
Who

"Lets see what's what then."

A few quick key taps and the screen lights up, a muted green colour. A few words slowly appear on the screen.

Spoiler:

Help

HElp

Metakirb

That can't be good.
Who

"Not in the slightest."

Who grins, the torch light making it slightly unnerving.

"Want to go find out what caused it?"
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

"That's the spirit!"

Who's hands glide across the keyboard hitting a few choice buttons and the door clunks open, the metal groaning in protest. On the other side of the door is a room lined with large black capsules.
Metakirb

Cactra slowly walks inside.
Who

Who raps on one of the tubes with his knuckle, resulting in another clang.

"Sturdy, good stuff."

She runs a finger over it and then puts it in her mouth, cause her face to scrunch up.

"Euck."
Metakirb

What is it?
Who

"Tastes awful."

Who continues to wander deeper in to the room, Cactra might be able to hear a scratching noise coming from inside one of the tubes.
Metakirb

She takes a look at it.
Who

It looks identical to the others, the speed of the sound increasing. Who hasn't notice and is poking about at the other end of the room.
Metakirb

She hurries over to him.
Who

Who's poking about in some wrecked machinary.

"I tell you, they've had some cowboys in here. Totally smashed the control module. Whatever's in those capsules isn't getting out."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

Behind them comes a mechanical hissing noise.

"Of course I could be wrong."

And he is, as misshapen humanoids begin to pull themselves out of the capsules.
Metakirb

Cactra steps back away from it.
Who

Who does likewise as the creature, part humanoid, part tumour, part machine, shambles towards them. Several other capsules hissing open to reveal more of the creatures.

"Now I don't want you to panic. Promise me you wont panic."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Great, cause we're kind of trapped."

Who backs right up against the wall as the creatures shamble ever closer.
Metakirb

Cactra tries not to panic.
Who

Who starts desperately scrabbling about behind them, trying to find a way out amongst the scrap as the creatures shamble forward.
Metakirb

Cactra's really trying not to panic.
Who

Who's frantic rummaging is rewarded as he finds a metal grate and pulls it free from the floor.

"Quick! Get in!"
Metakirb

She does so.
Who

Who quickly follows her down.

"Get moving!"
Metakirb

She does so.
Who

The vent system is long, with plenty and twists and turns. I hope Cactra's going quick cause the creatures drop in to the vent and give chase.
Metakirb

She's going fairly fast.
Who

Splendid.

"I think we lost them."
Metakirb

She slows down to catch her breath.
Who

"That should buy us some time, now we've just got to find a way out of here."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"If we just keep moving we're bound to find a grate or something sooner or later."
Metakirb

Another nod.
Who

"Right, heh, first time we've had to crawl through a ventilation shaft."
Metakirb

I guess so.
Who

"I'm surprised we didn't end up doing this sooner to be honest. It's kinda traditional."
Metakirb

She shrugs.
Who

Cactra might be able to spot a grate as they crawl passed it, why this one and not the others you ask? Through this one she'll just be able to make out signs of movement.
Metakirb

Movement is going to put her off it, for all she knows whatevers moving might want them dead, so she ignores it.
Who

Then they'll have to keep crawling, until eventually they come to a movement free grate.
Metakirb

She points it out to him.
Who

"Right then, you first. Or do you want me to do it?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head and opens it.
Who

There's a short drop down in to a much less dusty corridor, this one even has some lights as well as a slight humming noise.
Metakirb

She waits for Who.
Who

He follows behind her, landing in a heap on the floor.

"Meant to do that. Ow..."
Metakirb

She laughs.
Who

Who quickly scrambles up brushing herself off.

"Totally did, anyway this is a lot nicer than our last corridor. Don't you think?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Who starts t walk down the corridor.

"Is it just me or can you here like a buzzing noise?
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

"Good, I'm not crazy then. Lets see where it's coming from. Still got that torch?"
Metakirb

She nods and holds it up.
Who

"Great."

Who starts searching for the source of the buzzing, something that should be a lot easier with Cactra lending a hand.
Metakirb

She helps.
Who

Thought she would, working together they'll quickly find the buzzing is coming from a camera embedded in the wall.

"Well would you look at that."
Metakirb

What is it?
Who

"A camera, someone's watching us."

Who grins and waves at the lens.
Metakirb

She waits, not entirely sure why he's waving.
Who

"See if you can find me a screen, I might be able to make this two way."
Metakirb

She starts looking.
Who

Indeed there is one, Who gets to work, fiddling with it and technobabbling.
Metakirb

Cactra watches.
