The City in Flames

Post by Damascus on Wed May 03, 2017 10:00 pm

"Hey... wake up. You need to wake up!"

Slowly, they began to awake, having been knocked unconscious by the sudden Rayshift.

The first thing they saw was Mashu standing over them, though she looked far different now.



They then noticed that they were back in familiar territory, lying in a street somewhere in Fuyuki City. Only the buildings around them looked ruined and crumbled, and smoke filled the sky. They could see fires burning all over the city.

"What the hell?" Aaron sat up blearily, looking around. Avalon followed, struggling to her feet and helping up anyone around her. This was not good. "What the hell happened?!" she asked Mashu.

"We've Rayshifted to the past. This is Fuyuki of 2005, during the Holy Grail War."

Artoria looked round in shock. "I'm relatively certain Fuyuki did not look like this at any point during the War."

"There's much to explain, but it's not safe here. We need to--"

They were cut off by a scream from down the street. Olgamarie came jogging from around a corner toward them, pursued by strange-looking skeletons.

At a cursory glance, they weren't very tough-looking, and should be easy work for a Servant.

Though not technically his servant anymore, Aaron turned to Darius, "You wanna go kick some ass big guy?"

Phillipus's robes billowed around him, replacing the Chaldea uniform. "This way, Miss Animusphere!"

Olga sped right for them. "Do some-thiiiiiing!"

Darius growled happily, flexing his muscles and leaping forward. With a few chops of his axe, he dispatched half of the approaching skeletons, while Philipus and Artoria were able to easily clean up the rest.

Olga panted and came up to Mashu, a dazed look in her eyes. "Where... where are we right now?"

Aaron smirked at her, "Isn't it obvious? We rayshifted to 2005 Fuyuki!"

Mari rolled her eyes at Aaron. "You didn't know what happened when we got here, either." She crossed her arms.

"I was hoping to have Mordred with me before ending up on the ass end of Dangertown..."

"Rayshifted?" she echoed. "This is Fuyuki?" She looked around at the city in flames. "But wait... I wasn't supposed to Rayshift! Why am I here? Urgh!"

"Hurry, we have to get somewhere secluded before more show up!" Mashu ushered them somewhere more secluded.

Avalon shrugged, "Maybe we could summon her here?" Aaron chuckled at Mari's eyeroll and thanked the servants. "So. What do we do now, oh great and fearless leader?" he bowed to Olga as sarcastically as possible.

"Come on, I know this place like the back of my hand." Mari beat feet on the street, keeping an eye out with Mashuu for sanctuary.

"Ah... that should be possible, actually." Olga fiddled with her wrist computer. "We just need a connection with Chaldea. Crap! What's wrong with this thing?" She smacked the computer. "Well, if we leave, we may not be able to get back. As long as we're here, we might as well start investigating and find out the cause of the Singularity." She crossed her arms. "You people know this city better than me, so lead the way."

As Mari walked around, some of the buildings became more familiar to her. Pretty soon, they realized they were in Miyama, not far from the Tohsaka mansion.

Avalon considered, "Hmmm...should we go to the mansion? They wouldn't know us..."

"But they might listen to us, and if there's any empty houses in the neighborhood in a worst-case scenario we can squat. The world's really shitting the bed right now, I'll take whatever we can get." Mari looked around to make sure danger wasn't getting too close.

Aaron nodded, "Yeah! Maybe Phillipus can talk to them too." The group headed toward the mansion, to see if anyone was there.

They arrived shortly at the mansion to find nothing it in total ruins. This wasn't the same as when Ozymandias had blasted it; instead, it seemed like something had destroyed the mansion from inside.

In the sitting room was a collection of charred, smoking bodies of various sizes. One was the size of a little girl, and the others were adult-sized.

As Mari came close to one, she saw one part of it that was still fresh enough to be recognizable. It wore one of the shoes that Mari had been wearing the night of the first meeting at the Tohsaka mansion.

The bottom of Mari's stomach fell like an iron weight. She ran to the bathroom and heaved, falling onto her knees.

Avalon's eyes widened, "Whooooa no! What the fuck?!" she looked around at the bodies and tried to get a read on who was there. The young girl must have been Ilya. But was anybody missing? Before that however, she took some time to comfort Mari.

They counted the bodies up: Illya of course, Mari, Avalon, Yui, Lazarus, Carlotta, Kirei, Daichi... As well as mama and papa Tohsaka... and the two Tohsaka children.

No one was missing, except for the Servants.

"How awful..." Mashu herself even looked sick looking upon the carnage.

Avalon frowned, "Shit...okay. So, who wasn't at the meeting orginally? Maybe we can find them..."

Mari rinsed her mouth with water from the tap and rubbed her face with a towel. "It's not real... It's not real..." She took a deep breath.

Phillipus turned to Aaron, brows drawn together and trembling, struggling to remain calm. "Where were you at this point in time? Should we check there? We need to check what caused this as well..." He started pacing around the room, looking for any clues.

Aaron was also sorting through things. "I was still in America..." this was not okay. "I think the other team might be gathered at the theater though..." Avalon shook her head, "Nah, we're still at the theater at this point."

From what Philipus could tell, the mansion and all its occupants were killed instantly, from a massive magical blast centered on the sitting room. From there, the fire spread outward to surrounding buildings, and over the city. It had happened fast; the entire city was engulfed within minutes of the initial explosion.

"Perhaps we should head there next? There's got to be clues somewhere in this city."

Olga's wrist computer beeped. "Ah!" She quickly picked it up, Roman's face appearing on the screen.

"Ah! Olgamarie! You're alive! Is everyone okay?"

"Roman! What are you doing there?" she fumed. "What's going on? Where's Professor Lev?"

Roman frowned. "There was... an explosion... Lev is dead. Sorry. I'm the most senior ranking member of the staff left."

"Explosion? What?" She looked at the others in confusion.

Aaron frowned at her, "Don't fucking look at us it's your damn project!" he felt a little bad for lashing out at her, but just a little. He had an arm around Phillipus, now that they'd gone through the wreckage.

"I... I don't understand." She seemed more lost than anything.

"It was sabotage. 80% of Chaldea's systems are down. We've got enough staff to keep they Rayshift going, but..."

"Fine! I'll have to count on you then, Dr. Roman."

She flicked the screen off and sighed. "You there." She pointed to Mari. "You've got your catalyst? Now's the time to use it." She looked at Mashu. "We should be able to use that shield as the summoning circle. Put it on the ground here."

Mashu nodded and placed her shield down on the ground.
