First Order

Post by Damascus on Tue May 02, 2017 10:19 pm

Lazarus spent the next two days getting used to Chaldea's equipment, with da Vinci and Lev teaching him how to initiate Rayshifts. The rest of the group made a few other Rayshift simulations to prepare. Finally, the day came.

Da Vinci came to their rooms, calling them out into the hallway. "The time for the mission has come. We need you in the control room, Lazarus. Unfortunately..." She looked a small mixture of disappointed and irritated. "I guess the Chief is still raw about the other day. The rest of you have been removed from the first mission and placed on standby."

Aaron chuckled darkly. Chiara piped up, "Can we be in the control room to watch?"

"Afraid not. Authorized personnel only. I'm really sorry, I thought maybe I'd gotten through to her. I'll make sure they put you all on the next mission."

As they talked, Mashu came jogging around the corner. "Miss da Vinci, Lev is calling for you."

"Ugh, guess they're already setting up. We gotta go. Again, I'm really sorry. Wish us luck!"

She beckoned for Lazarus to follow. After she left, Dr. Roman came around the other corner with fresh food from the cafeteria.

"Hey, you guys don't mind if I join you, do you?"

"Hell yeah, let's eat." Aaron agreed. The group of leftovers wandered away after wishing everyone luck to hang out with the doctor and have a nice meal.

"Damn, Doc, you always have the goods!" Mari grinned. Astolfo's eyes were locked on the fluffy creature on Mashuu's shoulder and Phillipus chuckled.

"Fou is a very particular personality, but maybe they'll like you, from one 'fo' to another." Astolfo's eyes glittered with hope.

"It's fate!! I have to meet Fou!!" Mari snickered, then lightly nudged Artoria.

"I'm going to be summoning Mordred after we eat. Wanna come?"

Dr. Roman brought them down to the cafeteria so everyone could get some food.

"I'm not sure if that's the best idea," Artoria murmured. "If she sees me right after being summoned, she could attack. It might be better if you tell her everything she needs to know, first."

"Oh shit, that's a good point! Phillipus, you have all the books, right? Where's Mordred's?"

"Hmm..." He looked through his satchel, then pulled out a spiral notepad with an Aston Martin on the cover. Mari smirked.

"Makes sense. I thought you were gonna come with me anyways." Mari gave Avalon's cheek several smoochies. After she was stuffed full of Chaldea's finest entrees, she navigated the halls to the summoning room.

While they ate Dr. Roman took the time to fill them in on some of Chaldea's history, and how it was built up in the Alps.

In the meantime, Lazarus was in the control room getting ready to Rayshift the first team out. Down on the floor, the other Masters were in combat uniforms and getting into their coffins. Olga and Mashu stood nearby on the floor, supervising them.

Lev was on a console behind Lazarus, monitoring the status of the Masters as they loaded up. "Hmm..." He hit a button on his console. "Dr. Roman. Team A is looking good but Team B and down are having some small health issues. I suppose they're still not used to the Rayshifting process."

A holographic screen popped up on Romani's wrist computer. "Ah. I can come down and stabilize them then."

"You're in the medical office, right? You should be able to get here in two minutes from there. Don't be late."

"Gotcha." Roman hung up and took another slow bite of his food. "Well, being late should be fine. Team B won't start Rayshifting until base camp is established."

Phillipus crossed his arms and frowned. "You are a medical professional. I would expect that someone who took the Oath seriously would respond in a timely manner, regardless of the actions of one's employer. The health of your colleagues is of the highest importance. Shall I escort you myself?"

Aaron stared at him incredulously, "Dude...go! Don't rayshift unstable people what the dick is wrong with you?" He shooed him out.

"I said Team B wasn't even Rayshifting yet!" he protested, sulking. "You're so cruel. Alright, alright, it's fine! I'm going!" He shoveled the last of his food down and started down the hallway.

Lev watched his watch as they got prepared.

"Don't worry, Lev," da Vinci assured him. "He'll get here before Team B moves out. I'll make sure to give him a good thrashing if he doesn't."

Lev grumbled and nodded to Lazarus. "Begin the Rayshift."

Lazarus flipped the lever and kicked on the computer.

"Spiriton computer active. Beginning calculations."

Confident that the process was underway, Lazarus checked the screen to make sure things were going smoothly.

Then everything went white.

Roman had just reached end of the hallway when a rumbling reverberated through Chaldea. All the lights went out at once. Dr. Roman stopped and looked around in a panic. Blackouts simply didn't happen at Chaldea.

Next thing that Lazarus knew, his body was reassembling itself. When his vision returned, he saw only smoke and fire. The glass in the control room had been blown out; half the staff in the room had been blown to pieces, and the other half were unconscious and bleeding out.

Da Vinci was slumped against one wall, missing an arm, and staring at Lazarus in blank shock.

"Oh..." Lazarus was breathless. He rushed to DaVinci, healing her just enough to keep her stable. He quickly scanned the control room. Many were injured and unconcious. He raised a hand towards the cieling, and white glowing liquid began to pool on the tiles. It finally dripped down in one massive drop, rippling healing energy over the room. It couldn't help the dead, but it would stabilize the still living. Though it was in the form of liquid, it was actually just warm light. He turned to DaVinci, panting a bit after the spell, "We have to get down there." He immediately ran down to the floor, trying to find anyone who might be alive.

Meanwhile, the others felt the place rock with what might have been an explosion. Fearing the worst, they took off immediately towards the control room and rayshift area.

"Emergency alert. Fires have broken out in the central power plant and central control room."

Dr. Roman joined them as they ran. "This is bad, this is bad!"

Lazarus got to the floor to find it in ruins. The floor had turned to rubble, and the coffins had all be blown out of their places. Though they hadn't been destroyed, they were blackened and cracked. Only Chaldeas was unarmed, still floating above.

The rest of the group arrived a short time later. Dr. Roman looked on in horror. "My god. What happened here?"

"I don't know yet," Lazarus responded, "There are people alive in the control room. Some should go help them. The rest of you should help me see if we can find more." He sifted for the rubble, trying to find any sign of life in or out of the coffins.

Avalon headed to the control room, but asked Artoria to please search through the rubble on the floor. Aaron had Darius start moving and inspecting coffins. Chiara also looked through the rubble on the floor with her father.

Dr. Roman nodded and started to help sift through the rubble, until another announcement went off overhead.

"Suspension of power unit confirmed. Insufficient power generation. Unable to switch to reserve power. Personnel, please manually switch to reserve."

Dr. Roman looked even more horrified. "This is bad! If we lose power, we might never get it back on! Da Vinci, come with me to the power plant!"

Da Vinci nodded and rushed to his side. "I'll count on the rest of you to save as many as you can. Please be careful!"

The two rushed out and headed to the power plant.

Phillipus scowled. "Leo!! Your arm!!" Medea lightly squeezed his shoulder.

"She'll be fine, I'll see to her after we check the control room." She looked back at Chiaki, who approved with a nod and ran after her. The rest set to looking through damage for anyone they could save or anything they could salvage.

"Bulkhead closing in 180 seconds. All remaining personell, please evacuate from gate two immediately."

Yui struggled to get the nearest coffin open, but it was sealed tight. "Berserker! Help!"

Fran charged over and slammed the coffin a few times with her mace, until she finally managed to pry it open. The Master inside was in critical condition, his heart starting to give out. Yui whipped out a few gems and began to heal them as quickly as possible.

The others found the other Masters in similar conditions. Opening the coffins alone was a difficult task, and nearly every Master was in need of healing spells.

There was still no sign of Mashu or Olga anywhere among the rubble.

The announcement system boomed out again. "Rayshift system transferring to final stage. Coordinates: May 28th, 2005 CE. Fuyuki, Japan. Laplace conversion protection in place. Additional factor frame towards the Singularity secured. Unsummon Program set. Masters, please enter the final adjustments."

Yui looked up in a panic, but couldn't break her concentration on her healing spell without risking losing the Master.

"I'll do it!" Mari sprinted over to the open windows in front of the control boards. She bounced on the balls of her feet, squinting at the screens.

"Fuck!! Shit, ass!! What do I do!! Anyone know how to work this shit??" She whirled around. "Lazarus!! You know everything!!"

Lazarus was already there, trying his best to stop the process.

Now that the process was started, there didn't seem to be anyway to stop it. The Rayshift process was already preparing to execute. As he worked at the controls, though, something else caught his attention.

"Warning to observation staff. Chaldeas' condition has changed. Shiva's near-future observational data will be overwritten. Incineration of the Human Order confirmed."

Everyone present looked up at Chaldeas. Instead of the murky grey it had been up to that point, it was now glowing red. The entire surface of the miniature planet was coated in fire.

"Wh-what the hell does that mean?" Yui gasped.

The bay doors into the central control room closed tight, and a heavy metal shutter closed over it.

"Central bulkhead is now sealed. Commencing fire suppression in 90 seconds."

That was some relief. "Everyone, focus on healing the Masters as much as you can! There's nothing else we can do!"

Without any other direction, everyone began to heal, though Lazarus still tried to stop whatever was happening. If anything, he tried to go through the computers to find out what all of this meant.

Lazarus managed to find the screen showing incoming data from Shiva, the observation lens. It was currently set to the present date. From what Lazarus could tell, Shiva was showing them that the entire planet Earth--at that moment--was covered in flame.

"Condition of Klein Coffins cannot be confirmed. Seeking qualified Masters... Seeking... Resetting contact with reserve Masters. Starting Unsummon Program."

As they worked, the ones that had been selected to Rayshift--Mari, Avalon, Aaron, Darius, Philipus, Artoria--find themselves becoming enveloped in a white light.

"No..." Yui gasped.

But as much as Lazarus hammered at the console, he couldn't stop the process.

"Beginning Spiritron conversion. Rayshift beginning in 3... 2... 1... All operations cleared. Commencing First Order."

In a flash of white light, the three Masters and three Servants vanished on the spot.

Tears were running down Yui's face at this point. "Lazarus... I-I need help..."

She dug half her reserve of gems from her pocket and threw them into the air. Each one sought out a Master and began to heal them as best as they could.

"Commencing fire suppression."

Spigots emerged from the cieling and walls and began to spray what appeared to be water at first, but upon closer inspection was some kind of glowing blue fluid. It was freezing cold to the skin, but as soon as it began to touch the ground, the fires began to immediately go out.

Lazarus looked for anything he could use to back up the information, jammed it into the computer and began to download everything he could. He then began to help Yui with the healing. As soon as he was finished he needed to go outside and see what was going on.

A few minutes later, Roman and Da Vinci came into the control room, having successfully switched the power. All the fires had been put out now, and with Yui and Lazarus working on concert, the majority of the Masters were in stable condition.

Dr. Roman peeked over the console and into the room. "Is everyone alright?!"
