Who

Ophidius [Plot]

A giant techno-organic serpent, filled with plants and creatures of all kinds. Floating through the void, a blue box appears noisely inside it, sending a flcok of chitinous birds scatering. A man in a long coat walks out, holding his wife's hand.

"What do you think?"
Metakirb

She's looking all around her at the plants.
Who

"Good isn't it?"

"I thought we were going home?"

The birds that were scattered land around them.
Metakirb

It's beautiful.
Who

You haven't seen the best bit yet. Wait here."

Who dashes off into the trees.
Metakirb

Very nice place, this.
Who

One of the birds lands on Meta.
Metakirb

He manages a smile.

Hey there little birdie.
Who

It starts pecking at his armour.
Metakirb

You won't get through that.
Who

Who's voice echoes from above them.

"Look up!"
Metakirb

They do.
Who

And Who is standing on the ceiling, grinning.

"How great is this place!?"
Metakirb

wow.
Who

"Wow..."

"Coming up!?"
Metakirb

How?
Who

"Just start walking!"
Metakirb

They start walking.
Who

They'll find the ground stays flat no matter how far they walk, and eventually they'll reach Who.
Metakirb

What?
Who

"I'm sorry?"
Metakirb

How?
Who

"How what?"
Metakirb

We were just.. below... in a straight line...
Who

"The place is rotating, the interior gravity remains constant no matter where you are. Isn't that neat?"

Taren nods in agreement.
Metakirb

Ssssure....
Who

"I'll explain later."
Metakirb

Like everything else you'll tell me later?
Who

"I do not explain everything later."

A voice echoes throughout the forest

"Greetings Time Walker."
Metakirb

Time walker?
Who

"Where is the Saviour?"

"We don't, she's not with me anymore. Anyway, you've calmed down."

Taren hides behind Cactra.
Metakirb

Saviour?
Who

"Destri, long story."
Metakirb

Oh, right.
Who

"What brings you here?"

"Not much, just out and about with the family."
Metakirb

Hello.
Who

"Greetings young one. It is a pleasure to see Time Lords's at work in the universe once more."

"You know about that?"
Metakirb

You talk funny.
Who

There's a deep rumbling noise, which was probably a chuckle.

"Perhaps. It has been long since I had the joy of conversing with another higher being."

"Another higher being? But you're not...."

Who's listening intently, this is turning out to be very informative.
Metakirb

Higher being?
Who

Who cuts in.

"I'll explain later."
Metakirb

Okay.
Who

"So, who's up for a picnic? Don't suppose you can join us?"

"Sadly, no."
Metakirb

A picnic? Really? I thought we were going to try find Es.
Who

"Little stop. I'll check if she's here now. Anyone else here?"

"No, you are the only none native lifeforms within me."
Metakirb

It had best be short.
Who

"Quick snack, that's all."
Metakirb

Fine.
Who

Who removes a large blanket from his pocket and sets it on the floor

"So, what do you think kids?"
Metakirb

It's wierd, lot's of plants.

I know! aren't there so many amazing plants?

Dad, mum's acting wierd.
Who

He smiles.

"Mum, really likes plants."
Metakirb

That's because they're so wonderful and amazing!

It's a little creepy.
Who

"Yeah..."

"You can't say that about your mother."
Metakirb

Well there's something wrong with them if they don't appreciate plants enough. Maybe you're pushing them too hard with everything else.

She smiles at him.
Who

"Pushing them to hard? They've been asleep for most of it."
Metakirb

I'm only joking.
Who

"Besides, they've got another three years before the hard stuff. Sandwich?"
Metakirb

Thank you.
Who

Who hands out sandwiches to people who want them. Meanwhile a tiny vessel lands on the outside of Ophidius and begins burrowing in to it where the head and neck join, it's only blind spot.
Metakirb

Susie happily munches at her sandwich, Cactra eats hers a little slower.
Who

Taren chews on his, as does Who. Meta's not having one? The intruder has managed to bore a hole into it and is making its way to the control cortex.
Metakirb

No, meta is not having one, he stands against the nearest tree.
Who

Grump. The voice of Ophidius echoes throughout his interior again.

"Time Lord! Something is...urk!"

And with that he's silent.
Metakirb

What's wrong?
Who

"Okay this isn't great. We should probably start running."

Who quickly stuffs the blanket in to his pocket.
Metakirb

What's happening?
Who

"Something's happened to Ophidius, and that's very, very bad."
Metakirb

So much for just a picnic.
Who

"Okay we, better get moving, this whole place could turn against us any minute."

Taren grabs on to Cactra.
Metakirb

Fantastic...
Who

"Let's get moving."

Who starts walking off.
Metakirb

Everyone follows.
Who

As they start walking alot of the undergrowth starts to rustle.
Metakirb

What exactly's happening?
Who

"I'm not sure, but at a guess we've got about a minute before his immune system turns against us."
Metakirb

So where do we go?
Who

"To the source of the infection."
Metakirb

Which is?
Who

"Near the head."

Several tendrils with spikes dart out of the undergrowth and stop in front of them.
Metakirb

Susie almost screams.
Who

As does Taren.

"Okay, that's the Tardis out of the question..."

Who bolts in a different direction, scooping up the nearest child as he does.
Metakirb

That would be Susie, since Taren Grabbed onto Cactra, She picks Him up And follows, As does Meta.
Who

"The tendrils chase after them, getting rather close.

"Come on, it's got to be around here somewhere..."
Metakirb

Meta draws his sword and turns.

Keep going, i'll buy you some time.
Who

"How'll you find us?"
Metakirb

I run into you often enough throughout time. Shouldn't be too hard when there's a limited area.
Who

"Just try and stay here. I'll come back for you."
Metakirb

He nods and slashes at any tendrils that come close to him, or try to pass him.
Who

With the tendrils being occupied the path for the rest of them is fairly clear. Though as Meta cuts them down they're gradually replaced by large, more lethal looking ones. They dart out trying to grab his arms and legs.
Metakirb

He keeps slashing, moving about as needed.
Who

A large one rears up behind him with a large jagged stinger and dives at him.

----

"Susie?"
Metakirb

She looks up at him.

Meta doesn't see it, and continues slashing at the ones infront of him.
Who

Well he may be getting an acid stinger in the back depending on the quality of his armour.

----

"Hold on."

He appears to be about to run straight in to a wall.
Metakirb

It'll take alot of acid to get through, before it does he turns and slashes.

Susie holds onto him tightly, shuting her eyes.
Who

And through the wall they go! In to a large twisty tunnel, near the hole they made appears to be a makeshift bed as well as a crate.

"Knew it was still here!"
Metakirb

Cactra follows him.
Who

"Okay, you should be safe here. I'll go find Meta."
Metakirb

Cactra nods.
Who

Who rushes off to find Meta.
Metakirb

He's still fighting off tendrils.
