Who

Kla'rin Shak'don [Sci-Fi]

A world made almost entire of crystal. Desolate except for a monastery and a few colonies of crystal miners trying to eek out a living, though they are few and far apart.

A blue box appears next to a small lake, Who walks out and grins before walking back in.
Metakirb

Cactra walks out in a small two piece swimsuit, looking around for Who.
Who

Who appears to be nowhere but a careful observer might see a whisp of blonde hair from behind an outcrop of crystal.
Metakirb

Cactra walks over to it.
Who

It's Who hiding and trying very hard to control his emotions in light of Cactra's attire.
Metakirb

Cactra smiles at her.
Who

Who looks up at her, blushing.

"So....um, you're going swimming then?"
Metakirb

She nods, holding the bands out to her.
Who

"Um...what are they for?"
Metakirb

You to swim in.
Who

Who just got a whole lot redder, hope you're happy with yourself.

"No no no, it's okay I'm happy here."
Metakirb

She shakes her head and tries to grab her.
Who

She's grabbed, rather befuddled as she is. Give her some string and a kettle and five minutes to save the earth and she's fine. This? She can't really deal with this.
Metakirb

Cactra gets to work, when she's done, Who should be wearing the bands.
Who

No dice, Who's going to stop her the minute she goes for any clothes.
Metakirb

Cactra keeps trying.
Who

Who continues to struggle

"Cactra, what are you doing?!"
Metakirb

Please? There's nobody else around to see.
Who

Who shakes her head and points to a build on a hill behind them
Metakirb

Cactra doesn't seem to care.
Who

Well I guess eventually Cactra's persistence will pay off and she'll have man handled Who in to the bands, leaving her red nearly head to toe and covering herself with her hands.
Metakirb

Cactra tries to kiss her and lead her to the lake.
Who

She's kissed but doesn't return it and meekly follows her to the lake desperately trying to cover herself from unseen and entirely imagined watchers.
Metakirb

Cactra swims round her.
Who

She'll find the water's not actually water, it's a lot more gloopy, giving a bit of resistance as she swims. Who sinks in to the water, still covering herself with her arms, it doesn't do much good in the crystal clear water but she's trying to hide as much as possible.
Metakirb

Cactra swims up to her.
Who

Just sinking, right up to her neck.

"Enjoying yourself?"
Metakirb

She ndos and presses agaisnt her.
Who

She's clearly bright red, even through the water. Not pressing back against her, but not moving away either for fear one of the bands would slip.
Metakirb

She tries to kiss her.
Who

She's caught off guard again and returns it before swimming back a little.

"You're a good swimmer
Metakirb

She nods and swims after her.
Who

Who starts swimming about, hoping to distract Cactra.
Metakirb

Cactra swims after her.
Who

"I wouldn't advise going under the water, unless you want to spend forever getting it out of your hair."

Though it is already in Who's hair.
Metakirb

She swims closer to her.
Who

Who swims a little further back before backing in to a crystal and rather running out of places to go.
Metakirb

Still following.
Who

Who just sort of smiles nervously at her and debates diving under the water..
Who

Who just sort of smiles nervously at her and debates diving under the water..
Metakirb

Cactra tries to kiss her again.
Who

Who returns it lightly, still treading water and covering the bands with her arms.
Metakirb

Cactra tries to move her hands away.
Who

There's some resistance but she'll be able to manage it. Leaving Who bright red and treading water, she just feels so exposed.
Metakirb

Cactra smiles and kisses her, gently this time.
Who

As she moves to do so, the ground shakes and there's a loud bang as a plume of smoke begins to rise up from the building behind them. Who grins and attempts to dart past Cactra, heading for dry land.
Metakirb

She follows.
Who

Who bolts off up the hill, quiet forgetting her clothes on the floor in all the excitement, not the best move methinks.
Metakirb

Cactra's still following.
Who

Eventually Who stops at the door of the building.

"No good, the doors locked."
Metakirb

Cactra looks for another way in.
Who

"Cactra, can you go get my stuff?"
Metakirb

She nods and goes back for it.
Who

Who waits still trying to open the door by brute force, not really having much success really.
Metakirb

She comes back with who's coat.
Who

Who takes it gratefully and starts opening the door.

"You er, didn't bring he rest of it?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

"You know what, that's not important right now. Got it!"

The door swings open and Who dashes in.
Metakirb

She follows.
Who

Inside is rather dark, and a bit chilly really causing Who to wrap her coat around herself. Like the rest of the building the interior is constructed entirely from crystal though it all appears to have been tainted black.

"Okay this doesn't exactly scream good does it?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

"Okay, do you want to wait here? I'm just going to have a quick look down the hall."
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

Who nods and makes his way down the corridor, if Cactra's careful she might be able to spot some little archways carved in to the crystal on either side of them.
Metakirb

She takes a closer look.
Who

They each appear to be filled with a small pile of black dust.
Metakirb

She looks closer at the dust.
Who

It's a pile of black dust, well it's a bit grainy really.

"What have you found there?"
Metakirb

Just some dust.
Who

"When has it ever been just dust? Let me have a look."

Who dips a finger in the dust and then in to her mouth.

"Yep, not dust."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

"Well it is, sorta. It's people, people dust with just a smidge of crystal."
Metakirb

people? what could have happened?
Who

"I dunno, lets find out. Noticed how it's getting darker the further we go in? I'm betting we're on the right track."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

"Come on then."

Scooping up some of the dust Who heads deeper in to the building and in to the darkness.

"Bit nippy in here isn't it? Not a good sign."
Metakirb

I guess not.

Cactra is following as usual.
Who

As they walk they'll see more of those archways, each filled with dust. Eventually Who stops at a set of crystal stairs leading down and peers in to the darkness. A door is just visible at the bottom.
Metakirb

Cactra stays close to her.
Who

"Okay, what are the bets that whatever's causing this is behind that door?"
Metakirb

She shrugs.
Who

"Don't be too enthusiastic, they might hear you."

Who slowly starts making his way down the steps, stopping at the door and trying to open it, sadly to no avail.
Metakirb

Cactra tries aswell.
Who

No luck.

"Something's holding it in place and can you feel that? That buzz? That sort of tingle?"

She probably can.

"I don't think it's something physical either."
Metakirb

She nods again.
Who

"Right, just put your hands flat on the door okay?"
Metakirb

She nods and does so.
Who

Who does the same.

"Good now just picture the door opening."

If she does she should feel like something's pushing on the back of her head as the door slowly swings open.
Metakirb

She smiles as it swings open.
Who

I wouldn't smile just yet, in the center of the room is a single large crystal that appears to be swirling black as well as a small pedestal with a large book on it. All around are more small piles of dust.
Metakirb

Think the book has something to do with what's happened?
Who

"Lets have a look."

Who walks over to the book and starts reading, flicking through the book at an incredibly quick pace.

"Okay, it's safe to say it's not the book."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

Who points over to the crystal, the black inside beginning to pulse more violently.

"That however might be a bit of a problem."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"The books a set of instructions, the people here thought they could get get rid of...well this is going to sound daft, evil by forcing it in to the crystal. I'm really not sure how it ends up with this though..."

As he's talking the crystal itself begins to shake.
Metakirb

It's moving...
Who

"What, oh blimey it is isn't it? Stay back."

A voice echoes through both their heads.

"More food? Give them to me, your sins, your impurities."
Metakirb

Cactra takes a few steps back.
Who

"Feed me!"

"Nah, it seems to me you're a rock in the ground. Your not in any position to be making demands."
